  2. 2. Providence or restoration flrigirlal state The providence of restoration refers to God's work to restore human beings to our original, unfallen state so that we may fulfill the purpose of creation.
  3. 3. Human beings @ from the top of the growth stage and have been held under Satan's dominion. To restore human beings, God works to cut off Satan's influ- ence. For this, we must have the original sin removed.
  4. 4. -C2) Receive the Messiah and be reborn (remove original sin) 6) Separate Satan ®Hence, we, fallen people, first need to go through a course to separate Satan from ourselves. We do this in order to restore ourselves in form to the spiritual level which Adam and Eve had reached before the Fall — the top of the growth stage. ®On this foundation, we are to receive the Messiah and be reborn, thereby removing our original sin and being fully restored to the original state of human beings before the Fall.

  6. 6. Providence of restoration l l In accordance with God's Principle Principle of Restoration Since the providence of restoration is God's work of Q creation, which has as its goal the fulfillment of the purpose of creation, God works this providence in accordance with His Principle. In the course of the providence of restoration, this principle is called the Principle of Restoration.
  7. 7. 1 . The Princi Ie of Restoration throu h Indemni 1 .1 Restoration throu h Indemnit Before the fall One in heart Relate only with God oBefore discussing the Principle of Restoration through Indemnity, we must first understand in what position, due to the Fall, human beings came to stand in relation to both God and Satan. elf the first human ancestors had reached perfection, they would have lived relating only with God.
  8. 8. 1 . The Principle of Restoration through Indemnity 1 .1 Restoration through Indemnity Before the fall After the fall 9'19 Kinship m "93" of blood Relate only with God Midway position oHowever, due to their Fall, they joined in a kinship of blood with Satan. Hence, immediately after the Fall, they found themselves in the midway position — a position between 1 and Satan where they were relating with both.
  9. 9. Se aratin Satan from fallen eo le find Good conditions til‘ I I I Evil conditions "t, Fallen person Midway position How does God separate Satan from fallen people? A fallen person will go to God's side if he makes good conditions, and to Satan's side if he makes evil conditions.
  10. 10. Sacrifices Gain killed Abel El lll God could work . , . Satan c| aimed through them Adam s family them Midway position For example, when Adam's family was in the midway posi- tion, God instructed the children, Cain and Abel, to offer E rifices that they might come into a position where God could E His providence through them. Yet because Cain killed Abel, the condition was made which allowed Satan to claim them instead.
  11. 11. Restoration through indemnity original state Process Restoration ” of restoring’T through indemnity Lost Restored - What, then, is the meaning of restoration through indemnity? When someone has l_oit his original position or state, he must make some condition to be restored to it. The making of such conditions of restitution is called indemnity. We call this process of restoring the original position and state through making conditions restoration through indemnity,

God's work to restore people to their true, unfallen state by having them fulfill indemnity conditions is called the provi- dence of restoration through indemnity. Lost
  13. 13. Comparison of conditions of indemnity Original state Equal indemnity How does a condition of indemnity compare with the value of what was lost? First, in the case of a condition of egual indemnity, restora- tion to the original state is achieved by making a condition of indemnity at a price equal to the value of what was lost. (res- titution or compensation)
  14. 14. Comparison of conditions of indemnity Original state Equal 3" Lesser “~_ 3' Greater“. _ indemnity K Indemnriv . ' K indemnity . - Second, in the case of a condition of lesser indemnity, resto- ration is achieved by making a condition of indemnity at a price less than the value of what was lost. Third, in the case of a condition of greater indemnity, when a person has failed to meet a condition of lesser indemnity, he must make another indemnity condition to return to the grigk nal state, this time at a price greater than the first.
  15. 15. Indemnit condition set u for second time His own “E Failures_ ot condifion E4‘ the previous people Why is a condition of greater indemnity necessary when an indemnity condition is set up for the second time ? Whenever a central figure in God's providence makes a sec- ond attempt to fulfill an indemnity condition, he must fulfill not only his own unfulfilled condition; in addition, he must make restitution for the failures of the people who came before him.
  16. 16. Indemnity condition: what method? Original state Lost Restored: reversing the course Let us study the method of fulfilling indemnity conditions. For anyone to be restored to the original position or state from which he fell, he must make an indemnity condition by reversing the course of his mistake.
  17. 17. indemnity condition: Who? ~21: i l I l Perfect person . ‘IlF*; l.| _i; -an .7413 l: -'1 I-7)- Govern Dominate Fallen person Responsibility: )( Who should make indemnity conditions? Human beings should have become perfect by fulfilling their responsibility; they then would have had the authority to govern even the angels. Yet the first human ancestors failed in their responsibility and thereby fell to the state where they were dominated by Satan (angel).
  18. 18. llndemnity condition: Who? Perfect person _ V I9 Dominate Fallen person Responsibility: X Hence, to escape from Satan's domination and be restored to the state where we rule over him, we ourselves must fulfill the necessary indemnity conditions as our portion of respon- sibility.
  19. 19. 1.2 'l1‘lie lFouiidati«oit for the Messiah Fallen . erso For fallen people to be restored to their original state, we must receive the Messiah, who can remove our original sin. Before we can receive the Messiah, however, we must first establish the foundation for the Messiah. What indemnity conditions are required for establishing the foundation for the Messiah?
  20. 20. 1.2 The Foundatilon for the Messiah Foundation tor the Messiah ‘*' Reversing the course Fallen . erso To answer this question, we must first understand how Adam was to have realized the purpose of creation and how he failed to do it, because the condition of indemnity is made by reversing the course of the deviation from the original path.
  21. 21. Realize the purpose of creation For Adam to realize the purpose of creation, he was sup- posed to fulfill two conditions:
  22. 22. Realize the purpose of creation . ... Adam (person) - r God's commandment (condition) ' Growing period (period) Foundation First, Adam should have established the foundation of faith. The person to lay this foundation was Adam himself. The condition to establish this foundation was to keep strictly to God's commandment not to eat of the fruit and pass through a set growing period, which was the time allotted for him to fulfill his responsibility.
  23. 23. Realize the purpose of creation Ell Foundation — Perfect incarnation of the Word of - -—» One with God substance = Upon foundation of faith —§_ _ Adam (person) - — God's commandment (condition) **~ Growing period (period) Foundation Second, Adam was to establish the foundation of substance. Upon the foundation of faith, he was then to become one with God, thereby establishing the foundation of substance. This means he would have become the perfect incarnation of the Word with perfect character, fulfilling God's first blessing. Because Adam fell, however, he could not complete the pur- pose of creation.
  24. 24. 1.2.1 The Foundation of faith Therefore, in order to establish the foundation for the Mes- siah, fallen people must first restore through indemnity the foundation of faith, which the first human ancestors failed to establish. There are three aspects to the indemnity condition required for restoring the foundation of faith.
  25. 25. 1.2.1 The Foundation of faith ® Central figure «:9 Adam's family: Abel Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, kings, John the Baptist First, there must be a central figure. God had Cain and E offer sacrifices, and called men such as Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, the kings and John the Baptist for the purpose of raising up central figures.
  26. 26. ® Obiect for the condition : Objects for the condition as substitutes for the Word OSecond, an object for the condition must be offered. oWhen Adam lost faith in God, he lost the Word of God, given to him as the condition to establish the foundation of faith. As a result, fallen people could no longer directly receive the Word and instead had to offer objects for the condition as substitutes for the Word.
  27. 27. (2) Object for the condition : Objects for the condition as substitutes for the Word elsacrifice and Noah's ark ea Law of Moses (Ark of the covenant, Temple, and central figures) Gospels and Jesus as the incarnation of the Word Prior to the giving of the Old Testament, people could establish the foundation of faith by offering a sacrifice or its equivalent, such as Noah's ark, procured from the natural world. In the Old Testament Age, either the Word as revealed in the Law of Moses or represen- tatives of the Vlord—such as the Ark of the Covenant, the Temple and various central figures—served as objects for the condition. In the New Testament Age, the Vlloid as revealed in the Gospels, and Jesus, the incamation of the Word, were the objects for the condition.

(2) Object for the condition : Objects for the condition as substitutes for the Word aesacrifice and Noah's ark es Law of Moses (Ark of the covenant, Temple, and central figures) Gospels and Jesus as the incarnation of the Word ©Numerical period of indemnity Third, a numerical period of indemniy must be completed.
  29. 29. 1.2.2 The Foundation of substance Foundation for the Messiah Foundation of substance -2- Foundation of faith In order to lay the foundation for the Messiah, we need to establish the foundation of substance on the basis of the foundation of faith.
  30. 30. 1.2.2 The Foundation of substance Pe f - - Perfect Incarnation One with the Messiah — Receive the Messiah (remove the original sln) Foundation for the Messiah Foundation of substance -5- Foundation of faith When we receive the Messiah, we can be cleansed of the original sin through him and be restored to the position of the first human ancestors before their Fall. After this, a path still remains to be trod: we must become one with the Messiah centered on the Heart of God, then follow him along the uncharted path to the summit of the growing period, and thus finally become perfect incarnations of the Word.
  31. 31. The foundation of substance When the first human ancestors fell and acquired the original sin, they could not realize their God-given original nature. Instead, they harbored the primary characteristics of the fallen nature.
  32. 32. The foundation of substance 0 By making the indemnity condition to remove the fallen nature 0 Restore the original nature oBy making the indemnity condition to remove the fallen nature, a fallen person can lay the foundation of substance, by which he can receive the Messiah, be cleansed of the original sin through him, and ultimately restore his original nature
  33. 33. 2. The Course at the Providence at Restoration 2.1 The Ages in the Course of the Providence of Restoration Gain murdered Abel Let us now present an overview of the entire course of his- tory since the time of Adam and survey the providential ages which comprise it. God's providence of restoration began with Adam's family; however, God's Will was frustrated when Cain murdered Abel.
  34. 34. 2. The flourse ot the Providence at Restoration 2.1 The Ages in the Course of the Providence of Restoration Noah's family Fallen act of Ham V Gain murdered Abel 10 generations later, the unfulfilled Will was passed down to Noah's family. Yet due to the fallen act of Ham, Noah's sec- ond son, after the flood judgment, the 10 generations and the 40 days of the flood were lost to Satan.
  35. 35. 2. The flourse ot the Providence ot Restoration 2.1 The Ages in the Course of the Providence of Restoration Family foundation for the Messiah M Failed in _ the symbctic , _ offering Noah's family Fallen act of Ham it Gain murdered Abel After 400 years had passed, God's VVIH was entrusted to Abraham. Although Abraham failed in the symbolic offering, the family foundation for the Messiah was eventually fulfilled through the three generations of Abraham Isaac and Jacob.
  36. 36. 2000 years The 2000-year period from Adam to Abraham was for the purpose of finding one father of faith to lay the foundation to begin the providence of restoration. Thus, God's work of res- toration began with Abraham.
  37. 37. 1 Jesus _, _ flan years However, due to Abraham's mistake in making the symbolic offering, the 2000 years from Adam to Abraham was lost to Satan, and the 2000-year period from Abraham to Jesus was set up for restoring through indemnity those lost years.
  38. 38. 2000 years Second coming 2000 years When the Jewish people sent Jesus to the cross, the 2000 years from Abraham to Jesus was lost yet again to Satan. Hence, the 2000-year period from Jesus‘ time until today (Second Coming of Christ} is set up for restoring the earlier 2000-year period.
