Too many prophetic messages take the end back to the middle. We are consistently told that the end is revealed out of the beginning. The dominant players in the end are right there in the garden in the beginning. Using the pictures of ancient Hebrew, Brad traces the restrainer back to the midst of the garden, through the lives of Cain, Ishmael and Esau and concludes with the agricultural parables of Yeshua. The restrainer, or he who withholds in 2 Thessalonians 2:6-8, is clearly seen, from the very beginning, holding back the wheat from producing fruit. There is only one way for the man of sin to be stopped and revealed. Restoration! It is time for the prodigal son to come home.
