					A Sincere Plea for Restoration




         Acts 20:26-32
 26 Therefore I testify to you this day that I am
innocent of the blood of all men.
 27 For I have not shunned to declare to you
the whole counsel of God.
 28 Therefore take heed to yourselves and to
all the flock, among which the Holy Spirit has
made you overseers, to shepherd the church of
God which He purchased with His own blood.
 29 For I know this, that after my departure
savage wolves will come in among you, not
sparing the flock.
 30 Also from among yourselves men will rise
up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the
disciples after themselves.
 31 Therefore watch, and remember that for
three years I did not cease to warn everyone
night and day with tears.
 32 "So now, brethren, I commend you to God
and to the word of His grace, which is able to
build you up and give you an inheritance
among all those who are sanctified."
                          Acts 20:26-32

 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, saying,
"Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat;
 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil
you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you
shall surely die."

5 Then the LORD saw that the wickedness of man was
great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts
of his heart was only evil continually.
 6 And the LORD was sorry that He had made man on
the earth, and He was grieved in His heart.
 7 So the LORD said, "I will destroy man whom I have
created from the face of the earth, both man and beast,
creeping thing and birds of the air, for I am sorry that I
have made them.“
                                Gen. 6:5-7

 2 And Aaron said to them, "Break off the golden
earrings which are in the ears of your wives, your sons,
and your daughters, and bring them to me."
3 So all the people broke off the golden earrings
which were in their ears, and brought them to Aaron.
 4 And he received the gold from their hand, and he
fashioned it with an engraving tool, and made a molded
calf. Then they said, "This is your god, O Israel, that
brought you out of the land of Egypt!"
 5 So when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it. And
Aaron made a proclamation and said, "Tomorrow is a
feast to the LORD."

 18 And when the LORD raised up judges for them, the
LORD was with the judge and delivered them out of the
hand of their enemies all the days of the judge; for the
LORD was moved to pity by their groaning because of
those who oppressed them and harassed them.
 19 And it came to pass, when the judge was dead, that
they reverted and behaved more corruptly than their
fathers, by following other gods, to serve them and
bow down to them. They did not cease from their own
doings nor from their stubborn way.

 13 "Because from the least of them even to the greatest
of them, Everyone is given to covetousness; And from
the prophet even to the priest, Everyone deals falsely.
 14 They have also healed the hurt of My people slightly,
Saying, 'Peace, peace!' When there is no peace.
 15 Were they ashamed when they had committed
abomination? No! They were not at all ashamed; Nor did
they know how to blush. Therefore they shall fall among
those who fall; At the time I punish them, They shall be
cast down," says the LORD.
 16 Thus says the LORD: "Stand in the ways and see,
And ask for the old paths, where the good way is, And
walk in it; Then you will find rest for your souls. But they
said, 'We will not walk in it.‘
                                   Jer. 6:13-16

 1 Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times
some will depart from the faith, giving heed to
deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons,
 2  speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own
conscience seared with a hot iron,
 3 forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain
from foods which God created to be received with
thanksgiving by those who believe and know the truth.
