Prototype = a first, typical or preliminary model of something, from which other forms are developed or copied.
HEB 3:2 He (TLJC) was faithful to Him (God the Father) who appointed Him …

Restoration is what God does for man; whereas Reparation is what man does for man.
Restoration = a bringing back to: a former position or condition; an unimpaired or improved condition; a representation or reconstruction of the original form, as of a building.
Reparation = a repairing or keeping in repair; the act of making amends, offering expiation, or giving satisfaction for a wrong or injury; the payment of damages.
Restoration and Reparation they will have the opportunity to re-build. Turning the curse into a blessing.

Jam 5:10 As an example, brethren, of suffering and patience, take the prophets who spoke in the name of the Lord.

JAM 5:14 Is anyone among you sick? Then he must call for the elders of the church and they are to pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord;
JAM 5:15 and the prayer offered in faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up, and if he has committed sins, they will be forgiven him.
We saw the word afflicted in verse 13, is the Greek word:
kakopatheō = (kak-op-ath-eh'-o)
- to suffer (endure) evils (hardship, troubles);
- to undergo hardship: - be afflicted, endure afflictions (hardness), suffer trouble.
astheneō = (as-then-eh'-o) From a negative participle = to be feeble (in any sense), (be) sick, (be made) weak.
Through this spiritual believer’s positive responds to the adversity, and using the power of prayer, he can preserver or even turn the curse into a blessing.
Satan know the value of your spiritual, that why he attacks constantly, wanting to break down your walls-gates. Distract you…
