When people hear of the word Zion, they normally think that it is a place in Israel that is only relative to the Jews. What they do not know, is that there is not only a physical Zion, but also a spiritual Zion where God's children dwell. How important is this Zion? Lets see.
Look upon Zion, the city of our festivals; your eyes will see Jerusalem, a peaceful abode, a tent that will not be moved; its stakes will never be pulled up, nor any of its ropes broken.
Ps133How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity!running down on the beard,running down on Aaron's beard, down upon the collar of his robes.It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the LORD bestows his blessing,even life forevermore.
First the Bible says that Zion is the city of "our fesitivals". Whos festivals are they referring to here? Well, Isaiah is a prophet of God. Since the Bible concerns our salvation and not on our physical life, it must not be referring to wordly festivals such as x-mas or Thanksgiving but instead God's Festivals. In Psalms it says that in Zion, God grants eternal life. Then this must be a spiritual place and not just the physical zion in Israel. Whoever wants eternal life must come to the spiritual Zion. What are God's Festivals?
Lev 23:1 (NLT)The Lord said to Moses, 2 “Give the following instructions to the people of Israel. These are the Lord’s appointed festivals, which you are to proclaim as official days for holy assembly.
Passover and the Festival of Unleavened Bread
Feast of Weeks
Feast of Trumpets
Day of Atonement
Feast of Tabernacles
Wherever these Feasts are is Zion where we can receive eternal life. Many churches promise eternal life without keeping the Feats of God.This is completely contrary and proven false through the Bible. Without the Feats of God there is no forgiveness of sin or eternal life. Even if a church is named Zion, if they dont have the Feasts then they are not the true Zion. The reason they dont have the Feasts of God is because only God can establish these and build Zion HImself. Every church nowadays have been established my mere men.
For the LORD will rebuild Zion and appear in his glory.
5 Indeed, of Zion it will be said, "This one and that one were born in her,
and the Most High himself will establish her."
God Almighty Himself has to establish Zion. How wil He do that? It says HE must "appear" meaning will be able to see Him. This signifies His coming in the Flesh again to set up the Feasts of God and establish Zion.
Christ AhnsahnGHOng established all the Feasts of God through the Church of God World Mission Society. That means that Christ AhnSahngHong is God Almighty HImself, and Church of God is Zion!
Most Christians claim that they understand the Bible and they understand the will of God although they only seem to quote the infamous verses Jn 3:16 and Romans 10:9. Yet when some of them are asked explain the parables in Revelation or the meaning of prophecies in other part of the Bible, they reply by saying the Bible was sealed. How contradictory, one minute they say they know the Bible, and the next they say it was sealed. Well God explains why most Christians today truly do not understand the Bible.
For you this whole vision is nothing but words sealed in a scroll. And if you give the scroll to someone who can read, and say to him, "Read this, please," he will answer, "I can't; it is sealed."
Or if you give the scroll to someone who cannot read, and say, "Read this, please," he will answer, "I don't know how to read."
The Lord says: "These people come near to me with their mouth and honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men.
The reason men dont understand is because they worship in churches that are based on mens teahings rather than God's. Even though they profess to believe in God, through their actions they deny Him. The Bible does say that it has been sealed. Yet what is sealed must be opened in due time.
Rev 5:1-5 1Then I saw in the right hand of him who sat on the throne a scroll with writing on both sides and sealed with seven seals. 2And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, "Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?" 3But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it. 4I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside. 5Then one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed. He is able to open the scroll and its seven seals."
Only the Root of David is able to open the scroll. Then unless a church knows the Root of David, they do not know the Bible even if they claim they do.
Who is the Root of David?
Rev 22:16 16"I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you[a] this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star."
Jesus said He is the Root of David...In the book of Revelation Jesus already ascended to Heaven, so which coming should this be? This must be His second coming.
Then how can recognize Jesus when He comes a second time as the Root of David?
3 Give ear and come to me; hear me, that your soul may live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love promised to David.
David must come with the everlasting covenant.
Heb 13:20 20May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep,
Mt 26:28This is my blood of the[a] covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
The Root of David must bring the everlasting covenant, The Passover. No church nowadays can reveal any of the mysteries in the Bible because they never keep the Passover in the Bible. If they dont keep the Passover, that means they do not know the Root of David.The Church of God World Mission Society is the only Church that knows all the mysteries of the Bible because the Root of David HImself, Christ AhnsahngHong, has come and brought the everlasting covenant. It is so important to meet the Root of David and understand the Bible correctly not just believing any churches interpretation.
2 Peter 3:16
He writes the same way in all his letters, speaking in them of these matters. His letters contain some things that are hard to understand, which ignorant and unstable people distort, as they do the other Scriptures, to their own destruction.
If one distorts the scriptures, he will be destroyed. We must not fall into this category of those who will be destroyed but instead follow the Root of David, Christ AhnsahngHong.
So many Christians today say that since Jesus Christ died on the cross, then we no longer have to follow the Bible or any of the laws even though contradictory to that they claim to live by the ten commandments which are God's laws. Then claim that only by grace and just believing can we be saved. However, the disciples of Jesus Christ 2,000 years actually did mention that we did have to keep the law.
1 Co 9:21To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law), so as to win those not having the law.
Apostle Paul said He is under Christ's law. At this time, there was the law of the old covenant and the law of the new covenant which was the law of Christ.
Hebrews 8:7-13 For if there had been nothing wrong with that first covenant, no place would have been sought for another. 8But God found fault with the people and said"The time is coming, declares the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah.I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts.I will be their God,and they will be my people.
12For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more."[b]
13By calling this covenant "new," he has made the first one obsolete; and what is obsolete and aging will soon disappear.
God mentions a first covenant but then says that another one would be established.Then there are two laws being spoken of here.
If perfection could have been attained through the Levitical priesthood (for on the basis of it the law was given to the people), why was there still need for another priest to come—one in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron?Hebrews 7:12
For when there is a change of the priesthood, there must also be a change of the law.
There was the law of the old testament which was in the order of Aaron but once Jesus Christ came the law was changed to the order of Melchizedek. This means the law still remains, just the way it was kept was changed. It never says the law was abolished. In fact Jesus said the exact opposite:
[ The Fulfillment of the Law ] "Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.
Then clearly the law was never abolished and so we still have to keep it as did apostle paul. Yet this is not like the law of the old covevant, through Christ's law we receive forgiveness of Sins and become God's people.
So the law was put in charge to lead us to Christ....
In order to know Christ, first we must keep God's laws(Feasts of God Lev 23:1)and then we can know Christ. Then all those Christians who claim to have a relationship with Christ but dont keep the law, what does God say about them?
1 John 2:4
The man who says, "I know him," but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
Since we do not want to be called a liar, then we must do what God commands. Even the disciples followed Christ's law and now are regarded as great Forefathers of Faith.The only church that believes and keeps Christ's Law is the church of God World Mission Society. We are able to keep it because Christ Himself came again in the Flesh and while there were so many false teachings out there, He reestablished the true teachings in the Bible. Christ AhnsahnGhong is the only One who taught Christs law in these last days and allowed us to receive eternal life.
Nowadays, a lot of Christian Churches say they have the Gospel even though the definition of gospel varies from church to church. Some even say its music. Then what is the Gospel in the Bible? Gospel actually means the good news. What is the good news that comes from God?
Mark1:1The beginning of the gospel about Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
Mark 1:141 After John was put in prison, Jesus went into Galilee, proclaiming the good news of God.
Jesus went throughout Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every disease and sickness among the people.
Once Jesus Christ was baptized, from that point on He began to preach the good news.If its the first thing He did, the He must have found it to be of great importance. Everything Jesus did was an example for us, then what blessing and promise do we receive through the gospel?
Eph 3:4-6In reading this, then, you will be able to understand my insight into the mystery of Christ, 5which was not made known to men in other generations as it has now been revealed by the Spirit to God's holy apostles and prophets. 6This mystery is that through the gospel the Gentiles are heirs together with Israel, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ Jesus.
This Gospel is so important that we become Heirs, members together of one body, and sharers together in the promise in Christ.
1 th 2:4
4On the contrary, we speak as men approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel. We are not trying to please men but God, who tests our hearts.
romans 15:16to be a minister of Christ Jesus to the Gentiles with the priestly duty of proclaiming the gospel of God, so that the Gentiles might become an offering acceptable to God, sanctified by the Holy Spirit.
Even apostle Paul emphasized the importance of the Gospel, saying one must be "entrusted" and calling it a "priestly duty"
What is this Gospel through which we can receive such great blessings?
23if you continue in your faith, established and firm, not moved from the hope held out in the gospel. This is the gospel that you heard and that has been proclaimed to every creature under heaven, and of which I, Paul, have become a servant.
Apostle Paul said that he is minister of the gospel yet in the following verse he says he is a minister of the new covenant.
2 Co 3:6He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
Then is Paul a minister to two different things? Clearly not because He stressed how much one must preach the Gospel. Then this Gospel must be the new covenant.
In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.
13They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.
The Passover is the new covenant so then that must mean the Passover is the Gospel. This Passover is what Jesus Christ and His disciples diligently preached 2000 years ago. Lets confirm that the Passover is the Gospel. It must make us Heirs, let us become one body, and give us the promise of Christ.
Ro 8:9You, however, are controlled not by the sinful nature but by the Spirit, if the Spirit of God lives in you.
16The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children. 17Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory
16Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ? 17Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all partake of the one loaf.
1 Jo2:25 25And this is what he promised us—even eternal life.
Through the Passover, we become Heirs, one body with Christ, and receive the promise of eternal life. Then Passover is the Gospel. Yet although so many churches claim to have the Gospel which of them preached the new covenant Passover? Only Church of God World Mission Society established by Christ AhnsahngHong. The reason Christ AhnsahngHong brought the true Gospel is because He is the second coming Christ and God Almighty just as only Jesus was able to preach the true Gospel 2000 years ago.
31 "The time is coming," declares the LORD,
"when I will make a new covenant
Only God Almighty can bring the New covenant, the Gospel. Christ AhnsahnGHong is the Lord Almighty!
Everyone would agree that there is such thing as a family system on this earth. In order to create children, there must be a Father and a Mother. This is just common sense. Yet, what we must not fail to understand is God's will through this. Since God created everything then what was His purpose in making the family system?
They serve at a sanctuary that is a copy and shadow of what is in heaven.This is why Moses was warned when he was about to build the tabernacle: "See to it that you make everything according to the pattern shown you on the mountain."
God told Moses to make a sanctuary to be a copy of the one in Heaven. This shows that things on earth are a copy of whats in Heaven. Then even when we look at earthly families, we can understand about the Heavenly family.
Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of our spirits and live!
God mentions that just as we have an earthly Father, we also have a Heavenly Father. Then we must have a Heavenly Family just as we have an Earthly Family.
"This, then, is how you should pray: " 'Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
46While Jesus was still talking to the crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, wanting to speak to him. 47Someone told him, "Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to speak to you."[g]
48He replied to him, "Who is my mother, and who are my brothers?" 49Pointing to his disciples, he said, "Here are my mother and my brothers. 50For whoever does the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother."
Even 2000 years ago Jesus spoke about brothers and sisters. But at this time He wasnt speaking of physical brothers and sisters but spiritual since His physical family was outside and He pointed to His disciples instead.
Then if we have a Father,and brothers and sisters, just as we have here on this earth, who is missing?
But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.
According to the Bible, we also have a Heavenly Mother. Yet in a physical family the main factor that makes a family what it is, is they all have the same blood. Then how can we have the same blood as our Heavenly Father and Mother?
Luke22:13They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover.
In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.
Romans 8:16The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are God's children.
"The Spirit" means the Holy Spirit. The only the Holy Spirit can testify that we are a Heavenly Family through the Blood of the Passover and prove to us the New Jerusalem our Heavenly Mother. Although there are many who claim to know the truth, only Christ AhnsahnGHong actually brought this truth and testified it through the Bible. Christ AhnsahngHong is the Heavenly Father who has gathered His spiritual Children through the Passover and led us back to our Heavenly Mother. All praises be to Christ AhnsahngHong!
