Why Is This Year, 5778, So Important?
Rabbi Eliyahu of Vilna (The Vilna Gaon) had the Ruach Hakodesh, The word "gaon" means genius and on no person could this title be more appropriately bestowed than on Rabbi Eliyahu of Vilna. Rabbi Eliyahu was probably the most influential Jewish leader in modern history and he explicitly wrote in his commentary to Sefer Dezniyuta Para 5, 54b, that "according to the time when Adam (ha'rishon) was created and when he first stood up, one can know the period, when at the end, the messiah will come. However, I took an oath that I will not reveal the matter,"
But after the Vilna Gaon passed away in 1798, the sages of Jerusalem came and explained that this period begins in the year 5708 (1948).
How is this calculated? the Vilna Ga'on also wrote that seventy years would be the period that is referred as the birth-pains of the Messiah -a very difficult period before his coming, (in his commentary on the corrections of the Zohar, page 5b), and I brought this in Sefer Malil to Avraham Sha'ar 3:19. that this year, 2018, is the seventieth year when counting from the year 1948.
From the weekly shiur of Rabbi Meir Mazuz shlita, 26 Elul 5767
This month and day, the 15th of the Hebrew month of Av (Tu B'Av) in this year, is the special day of Love (Ahava) to cause selfless love (ahavat chinam) that rectifies causeless hatred (sinat chinam), Thanks (hodaot) and Unity (achdut). This day is not like any other day! We are given the opportunity to show the Holy One, blessed be He, that we are ready for redemption - praying and hoping that YHVH will redeem us in His mercy! There are many signs and hints that this window of opportunity will be available to us especially on this date and this year.
We emphasize! We do not say with certainty that this special day will be the beginning of redemption and that the Messiah will come, even though we wait for it to happen every day. Only YHVH knows when and on what day the beginning of the redemption will begin; but we are only doing this event, to show the Holy One, blessed be He, that the people of Israel, as a nation, are trying to prepare themselves and achieve the right for the complete redemption!
Now let's understand! Immediately after our greatest day of decline which happened on the 9th day of the Hebrew month of Av - (Tisha B'Av) which included the destruction of the two Holy Temples; our greatest ascension will come, the day which will become the day of Supreme Consummation of our special relationship with God, that could lead to the final redemption!
The entire nation of Israel is called upon to thank YHVH and to unite on this special day.
The secret is to demonstrate the spiritual strength and merit of the power of the seventy elders of Israel, together with the people of Israel.
Only Elohim knows which people, who are living today that truly embody the root and spiritual power of Messiah Yeshua. These people can be among our greatest rabbis, but they can also be hidden sages, even you! Only YHVH knows the soul of every person!
Therefore, it is incumbent on all the people of the nation of Israel (both natural branches & those grafted back in through Messiah Yeshua) to join in and participate in continual prayer, pouring out all your heart and soul before YHVH, accepting upon themselves the yoke of the Kingdom of Heaven, bringing forth The Restoration Of All Things, where YHVH will rebuild the fallen Succot David and again dwell with His first love the children of Israel .

THE RESTORATION OF ALL THINGS
At The Restoration of the True Faith Ministries we believe that all believer's are in different places when it comes to their spiritual walk. We believe in restoring the faith once delivered to the saints, but doing so with love and compassion. Too many in the HRM and in Christianity want to cause division because they are in different places, when it comes to their walk with Messiah Yeshua (Jesus). I simply do not see the Scriptural basis for hating our brother who believes in the same God, but does not follow the same theology as we do. We can do everything in the Bible correctly, yet if we do not love our fellow brothers and sisters in the faith, it's all worthless.
1 Corinthians 13:1-3 If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. 2 If I speak YHVH's (God) Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing. 3 If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.
Let us all learn to respect the honest convictions of our brethren and not be so quick to condemn those who have a different understanding. There is so much yet to learn, so much growing that must take place before our Messiah returns. Indeed, we will never arrive at all of the truth as long as we are clothed in mortality. Although we do have the earnest payment of the Holy Spirit, we still see through the eyes of human flesh. Let us therefore commit to doing the following:
"... grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Y'shua HaMashiach." (II Peter 3:18)
At "The Restoration Of The True Faith Ministries", we believe that YHVH our Elohim is fulfilling His Promise of "The Restoration Of All Things", which is found in Acts 3:21" Heaven must take Him in until the time comes for the restoration of all things, which God announced long ago through His holy prophets." and this is happening NOW! We clearly see in this verse that YHVH [the LORD] is revealing His plan of restoration of all things (Acts 3:21). Our responsibility is to return to the ancient ways walk according to His Way, just as Yahshua did, as well as did all the apostles and prophets. as we are convinced that salvation is by our Heavenly Father’s grace through faith, and is the fruit of repentance that leads to following the Messiah Yahshua’s [Christ Jesus’] example of obedience. We consider that studying the Hebraic roots of the Faith, will help us to better understand Abba’s [Father’s] Word, His Name (YHVH), His Re-newed Covenant, His Feasts, the ministry of His Messiah Yahshua, His Gospel of the Kingdom and His People Israel.We aim to provide Resources, Events, Torah Studies, Video teachings and to equip disciples, teaching them to become set-apart believer in Messiah Yahshua.
Much of the teaching taking place in the Seminaries, which in turn has filtered into the church today ignores the fact that Yahshua is not only our promised Messiah, He was also a first century Hebrew Israelite, from the tribe of Judah. He raised following the Torah/Tanakh and He fulfilled every Feast Day, Sabbath Day, Commandment and Statute perfectly. To fulfill in Hebrew means to lead by example, not to do away with. If He had taught others that the Torah was no longer to be followed, then the pharisees would not have had to devise a plan to kill Him, because He would have been considered a false prophet and been put to death according to His own Word in
Deuteronomy 13 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, 2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; 3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the Lord your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul. 4 Ye shall walk after the Lord your God, and fear him, and keep his commandments, and obey his voice, and ye shall serve him, and cleave unto him.5 And that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams, shall be put to death; because he hath spoken to turn you away from the Lord your God, which brought you out of the land of Egypt, and redeemed you out of the house of bondage, to thrust thee out of the way which the Lord thy God commanded thee to walk in. So shalt thou put the evil away from the midst of thee
Many believe that the Apostle Paul did away with the Hebraic Roots of the Old Testament and began a new religion (called Christianity) based totally on the New Testament. Nothing could be further from the truth, for near the end of his ministry Paul stated very clearly that he still considered himself to be a member of the sect of the Pharisees:
"But when Paul perceived that one part were Sadducees and the other Pharisees, he cried out in the council, 'Men and brethren, I am a Pharisee, the son of a Pharisee; ... '" (Acts 23:6)
It is our belief that as we learn to study the Scriptures more effectively our differences in interpretation will begin to disappear. Remember what the Apostle Paul wrote:
"For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I shall know just as I also am known." (I Corinthians 13:12)
And Peter warned us that Rabbi Sh'aul writings were hard to understand and many would take them the wrong way and twist them
2 Peter 3:15 And account that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you; 16 As also in all his epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as they do also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. 17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know these things before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.
"Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."(II Timothy 2:15 KJV)
"... receive(d) the word with all readiness, and search(ed) the Scriptures daily to find out whether these things were [are] so." (Acts 17:11)
"The fear of the LORD [YHVH] is the beginning of wisdom; A good understanding have all those who do His commandments. His praise endures forever." (Psalm 111:10)
