Being that the Passover solves our problem of death, by giving us eternal life, we can also see it's relationship to the Tree of life in the Garden of Eden: =Both give us the eternal life needed to conquor death. Then clearly, Jesus's flesh and blood IS the Passover in the Garden of Eden.
But what happened to the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden?God blocked the way to the Tree of Life when He expelled Adam and Eve. Then who's the only one who can open it? (Only God)But didn't Jesus give us eternal life 2000 years ago?
John 10:10 "The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full."
Life to the full = eternal life
But eternal lie is given by eating from the Tree of Life (Passover). Therefore, if Jesus gave us eternal life through the Passover, what Tree did He open? (the Tree of Life). By His actions, who is He, if only God can open the way to the Tree of Life? (Jesus Christ is God!)
By Christ Coming to give us eternal life thrugh the Passover, He opened the way to eternal life and solved our problem of death.
But as we've been hearing all along, the Passover was abolished by the Roman emperor Constantine in the A.D. 300's. From this point on, no one can live eternally - then from this point on everyone must die. Can you imagine if God were to bring judgement in A.D. 450? Who can go to heaven?
But the God of the Bible is a merciful God. He wouldn't let us die forever. He already planned to come a second time.
Heb. 9:27 "Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, 28so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him."
God already planned, even before it happened, that He will restore salvation. But salvation to dying souls is eternal life. However, the way Christ gave us eternal life was through the Passover. Then when Christ comes a second time, He will bring the Passover!
Now let me ask you: How are we able to keep Passover in the Church of God World Mission Society today if it was destroyed? Who obviously came to the Church of God World Mission Society? The 2nd Coming Christ! But who literally brought Passover to the Church of God, WMS? Christ Ahnsahnghong! He, by His actions, is the true 2nd Coming Christ.
But Passover is the reality to the Tree of Life. By bringing Passover back, Christ Ahnsahnghong also opened the way to the Tree of life. But wait, only God can open the way to eternal life. Then who is Christ Ahnsahnghong? HE IS GOD! This is why we in the Church of God World Mission Society believe Christ Ahnsahnghong as the the true God Almighty and 2nd Coming Christ. We trust in Him and he gives us salvation!
And now the very much anticipated reality of the Tree of Life written in the Garden of Eden:
John 6:53-54 "Jesus said to them, "I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. 54 Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day."
We know that Jesus ALWAYS spoke in parables, but how can we call a parable what He called the truth? Then what is the true way to have eternal life? (Jesus's flesh and blood.)
Whoa, whoa, whoa - we're not canibals here. How can we REALLY have Jesus's flesh and blood? Surely God is not asking us to literally eat from Him. Even so, Jesus already ascended to heaven over 2000 years ago. There must be some way that He fulfilled His promise of eternal life? Let's see the way he promised His flesh and blood:
Matt. 26:26 "While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, "Take and eat; this is my body."
27 Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, "Drink from it, all of you. 28This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins."
By now it should be understood that this verse is NOT talking about communion, since it didn't exist yet, but for those newcomers out there:
Matt. 26:17 "On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?"
18He replied, "Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, 'The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.' " 19So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover."
This verse is previous to the verse with the bread and wine. Being that they were preparing Passover earlier and the next verses we see them eating, obviously they must have been eating the Passover Feast. However, it was Passover night that Jesus took the bread and wine and called it His flesh and blood. (Mind you, it was God's word that said, "Let there be light, and there was light. The same word is now saying the Passover bread and wine represents Jesus's flesh and blood.) then we can conclude that through the Passover, Jesus offers His flesh and blood through the bread and wine of the Passover.
Yet, what was the result of eating Jesus's flesh and blood in the book of John? (Eternal Life) Then using the idea: A=B, B=C, then what is also true? A=C. Likewise, the true way to have eternal life is to celebrate the Passover.
Then how is Passover related to the Tree of Life? Please stay posted!
If we take a look at what happened after the origin of death, in Gen. 3:22;
Gen. 3:22 "And the LORD God said, "The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever."
Then here we find out another tree. This is the Tree of Life! Have you ever heard of this tree before? Me neither! This must be the hidden thing Jesus Christ was speaking about! The characteristic of this tree is that it gives eternal life. Notice, God said, "He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take ALSO from the Tree of Life and eat, and live forever."
Even though the Tree of the Knowledge of Good & Evil is eaten from, if we just take from the Tree of Life what kind of life will we have? Eternal life! Then how important is this Tree of Life? It is the solution to our death! Don't you want to eat from this tree, then? Of course! Who wouldn't?!
One small problem: where on earth is this tree? Archeologist have found pieces of Noah's ark and even so many dinosaur bones...but this Tree of Life is yet to be found because it doesn't exist!
Jesus said He spoke in parables since the creation of the world. Parables are only stories with a hidden meaning behind it. Then in this parable there is something that gives us eternal life. However, this parable was written in the Old Testament. Keep in mind: the Old Testament is a shadow, then only in the New Testament can we find the reality. let's see what is the reality of the Tree of Life, giving eternal life in the ew Testament.
Everyone, no matter who they are or what status of living they are under or the nationality - finally we must all face what at the end of our life? That's right, the D-word. Death is a problem that people do not consider to be a problem because they feel it is natural. Actually, the fact that we must die is more natural to us than the fact that we could live forever. However, death is a problem, no less, and for this reason Jesus Christ Christ came 2000 years ago in the event that He may solve this problem of ours. Yet when He came, he did not give the answer in such a way that EVERYONE should understand.
Matt 13:34 "Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. 35 So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet:
"I will open my mouth in parables,
I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world." Then we see that Jesus ALWAYS spoke in parables, but Jesus has been speaking parables and HIDDEN things since when? (The creation of the world.) Then what hidden thing has Jesus spoke from the beginning - the book of Genesis? Let's see!
Gen 2:15 The LORD God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it. 16 And the LORD God commanded the man, "You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; 17 but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die."
Yeah, we all know this story: We understaand that the serpent deceived Adam and Eave into eating from the forbidden fruit and that's how man came to die. However, Jesus spoke HIDDEN things in the book of Genesi. Then we must find out what is hidden here? In the Garden of Eden we've found the origin of death - which is mankind's biggest problem. But as the proverb goes: Where there is a problem, there is also a solution. Death (the problem) originated in the Garden of Eden, then in this same place we should find life (the solution). Let's see what hidden thing Jesus REALLY spoke. Stay in the loop and keep posted!
Father Ahnsahnghong is the Last Adam, a life-giving Spirit. He came from the ends of earth and opened the way to eternal life. We are driven out from heavenbecause we were tempted by satan.
Father made known to us the tree of life Heaven's Mother! Oh, Father Ahnsahnghong of love, we give thanks to You forever!
Mother of Heaven is the Last Eve who is a life-giving Spirit. She's come from the ends of the earth and gives us the fruit from the tree of life. She Herself experienced the pain of death through the forbidden fruit. Mother forgives our sins and makes us heavenly children. Oh heavenly Mother of love, we give thanks to You forever!
When I hear so much slander about the life of Heavenly Mother - how she has biological children - it reminds me of the verse in Hebrews:
Heb. 2:14 "Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— 15and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. 16For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham's descendants. 17For this reason he had to be made like his brothers in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. 18Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted."
Like this, when Our Heavenly Mother came to this earth, although She is God, She made Herself like us in EVERY way, so that She can counsel us in the same hardships that we are currently going through.
How can one give advice to a parent when that one has no children? In order to give advice, you must experience the situation. Mother has come as the Counselor along side Heavenly Father. As such, when we go through some kind of trial - whether it be temptation, persecution, family/child situations, or anything, Heavenly Mother's advice is valid and true because She has already experienced it all. Therefore, because my Mother has overcome everything, then I have the hope and confidence that I will also overcome everything. And I know hope never fails.
Those who slander Heavenly Mother for Her physical life DO NOT know the will of God and merely regard Christ with a worldly point of view:
2 Cor. 5:16 "So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer."
Such people are also in error, not knowing the scriptures or the power of God:
Matt. 22:29 "Jesus replied, "You are in error because you do not know the Scriptures or the power of God."
The only way to recognize who Mother is is by studying the Scriptures, which point to Christ:
John 5:39 “You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to me! 40 Yet you refuse to come to me to receive this life."
