We believe that as God promised to gather His people Israel from all the places where they were scattered to, the church also must go back to, be restored to its origins and foundations. In 1 Corinthians 3 we read that the fire of God will purify and make it clear what will remain. “Now if any man builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each man’s work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man’s work. If any man’s work which he has built on it remains, he will receive a reward. If any man’s work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire” (1 Corinthians 3:12–15). If we are honest, we can find that many things in the church were brought up by men, things that were not originally in the church.
“Let us rejoice and be glad and give the glory to Him, for the marriage of the Lamb has come and His bride has made herself ready.” It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints” (Revelation 19:7–8).
“Therefore repent and return, so that your sins may be wiped away, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord; and that He may send Jesus, the Christ appointed for you, whom heaven must receive until the period of restoration of all things about which God spoke by the mouth of His holy prophets from ancient time” (Acts 3:19–21).
We believe that there are guideposts, landmarks, and very important information in the Scriptures for the restoration of the church.
““Set up for yourself roadmarks, Place for yourself guideposts; Direct your mind to the highway, The way by which you went. Return, O virgin of Israel, Return to these your cities” (Jeremiah 31:21).
When Jeremiah was warning the people of Jerusalem which were being taken captive to Babylon, he told them, set up roadmarks, plant trees, make sure you can find your way back to Jerusalem.
