Several aspects of restitution will be examined in this issue of His Kingdom Comes. What restitution is, why we look forward to the "times of restitution",what we can expect before and during these times, all based on the Bible and Bible study. First we will examine what is being restored and thereby discover what restitution is.
Restitution is the return or the restoring of something lost or removed. If you restore an automobile or a cabinet, you bring it back to the condition that it had when it was new or the condition that the designer intended. Here in Exodus 22:6 restitution (payment) is required for the damage caused by a fire gone out of control. "If fire break out, and catch in thorns, so that the stacks of corn, or the standing corn, or the field, be consumed therewith; he that kindled the fire shall surely make restitution." In Acts 3:21 we find the key to the sort of restitution we will consider here; "Whom the heaven must receive until the times of restitution of all things, which God hath spoken by the mouth of all his holy prophets since the world began.". These "times of restitution of all things" God spoke of through His prophet Isaiah. Here are some of the statements which Isaiah made about this time period:
A careful reading of these texts will reveal a new world that is wonderfully better and strikingly changed from the world that we know now. The statement; "The wolf and the lamb shall feed together," and "And they shall build houses, and inhabit them; and they shall plant vineyards, and eat the fruit of them." certainly speak of an Earthly kingdom not a Heavenly one since those animals, houses and vineyards are not invited into Heaven. But what does this have to do with restitution?
Only one man has ever lived a completely righteous life, Jesus. Adam had a chance to become righteous and failed in his attempt. However, while Adam was making his attempt, his environment, food, water, companions, yes, even all that he came into contact with, was the best that God had to offer. Likewise, when God extends His offer to "all men" to become righteous, God will present to "all men", the environment that He formerly gave to Adam. This giving again, or restoring, of an environment conducive to righteousness, is the "restitution" that we are discussing. Our degraded environment has been killing us since Adam and Eve were expelled from the Garden of Eden. The Garden of Eden environmental conditions are that which will be restored.
The lack of good sustenance (food, water and air), the lack of good education, the lack of good companionship all keep us from righteousness. All of these will be supplied when God restores the Garden of Eden conditions to the whole Earth. Here are some thoughts on what was lost and that which will be restored.
This wonderful world is not yet and has never been since Eden. Habakkuk 2:3 "For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry." When will that "appointed time" be?
To determine when we should look for restitution to take place, we need to consider where we are in the path of time to begin to see and understand the milestones and the signposts along the way. The following are some of the milestones and signposts that have stood the test of time and have been tried by those wishing to prove, to try by fire, the roadmap of our journey through time.
As watchers for His kingdom, we have the privilege, even the responsibility, to keep a vigilant eye on the signs of the times and the texts of the Bible to know where we are in Yahweh's time and in His plan.
The chronological milestones are basically thus: Click here for more complete information.
These last dates will be more fully detailed in future e-memos.
Any feedback or questions you may have would be welcome. I have much to learn yet and can only pray to God that I might have, or know where to get, an answer for you. We will cover more on chronology and many other subjects, and some of your suggestion, I hope, in future issues of His Kingdom Comes.
May it be a blessing to you.

Yahweh Almighty: We have chosen to use the spelling "Yahweh" to bring us back more closely to the sound that Hebrew ears heard when the one true God was referred to in times past. The spelling "Jehovah" is a more literal written translation from the Hebrew letters that, when pronounced with modern English phonemes, sounds NOT very much like the sounds of old.
