I've asked several people recently about the Word of God and what their personal feelings are towards it. Majority of the answers I received were that they didn't really understand most of it, and the rest is merely taken as a moral guide to life. I myself before receiving the truth had a similar answer. The Word of God isn't for man's interpretation, in fact, Daniel even prophesied that the exact words of the Bible couldn't possibly be understood until the time of the end....

"But you Daniel, close up and seal the words of the scroll until the time of the end. Many will go here and there to increase knowledge." Dan 12:4

and again..

"He replied, "Go your way, Daniel, because the words are closed up until the time of the end." Dan 12:9

Here we see in Daniel that God had already prophesied that the words of the Bible would be closed up and sealed until the time of the end, therefore people will go here and there to increase knowledge, yet never quite understanding what the words of the Bible actually mean.

Hence there are over 38,000 Christian Denominations existing in the world today.(http://christianity.about.com/od/denominations/p/christiantoday.htm)
Although many are considered to be insignificant and very small, if you think about it, with only one Bible existing, that number should not even be 2.

What has happened to Christianity? In the Apostolic ages, there was one church existing, which was established by the very teachings of Jesus Christ. This was the Church of God. What were the teachings that these churches followed? If we look to the writings of Apostle Paul, he cared for and tended to each and every Church of God and continued to write letters to them in regards to what they should be practicing and following in order to follow Christ correctly...

"Eat anything sold in the meat market without raising questions of conscience, for, "The earth is the Lord's and everything in it." 1 Cor 10:25-26

"Follow my example as I follow the example of Christ." 1 Cor 11:1

"Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head. And every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head." 1 Cor 11:4-5

"For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed (Passover night Matt.26:23), took bread..he broke it and said, "This is my body, which is for you, do this in remembrance of me." In the same way after supper he took the cup saying, "This cup is the New Covenant in my blood.." 1 Cor 11:23-25

"If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice- nor do the churches of God." 1 Cor 11:16

These are just a few examples of the teachings that Apostle Paul passed on from Christ to the churches of God. However, do Christians today keep these same teachings?
- Passover
- Women wear veils, men DO NOT cover their heads
- Not abstaining from any type of food sold in the meat market

** In fact I'm sure many of the denominations who claim to follow Christ and the Bible don't follow the teachings correctly, rather they prefer to take the words of the Bible and add their own methods to it.

"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." 2 Peter 3:16

So then, if the words of the Bible are sealed and being interpreted in various ways, how are we to know how to truly follow God?

There has to be a time when the words will be unsealed.....in the time of the end all of the truths of the Bible will be brought back, but by who?

"Then 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. And I saw a mighty angel proclaiming in a loud voice, "Who is worthy to break the seals and open the scroll?" But no one in heaven or on earth or under the earth could open the scroll or even look inside it. I wept and wept because no one was found who was worthy to open the scroll or look inside. Then 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." Rev 5:1-5

- According to Revelation the seals can only be opened by the Root of David. Well now that we know that I'm sure the next question is... who is the Root of David?

"I, Jesus, have sent my angel to give you this testimony for the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star."

- So, Jesus Christ is the offspring of David. But the prophecy says that the scroll will be opened in the time of the end. How is Jesus going to open it? we aren't living 2000 years ago, he isn't walking this earth any longer.....

"So 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."

This verse lets us know two very important things:
(1) Christ must come again, APPEAR, the same way he did 2000 years ago
(2) He will bring the way to receive salvation.

As of right now I'm sure many people are confused as to how to receive salvation. Many people bounce around from church to church, seeking that "right" one, or are under the impression that by merely believing in Christ we have Salvation. If that were the case, why would Christ have to come again to BRING salvation? According to the scriptures, what is the way to receive Salvation? If we can understand that, then we will be able to recognize the Root of David, Second Coming Christ, who is prophesied to come in the last days.

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." Jn 6:53 .........STOP

Can we merely just believe in Christ???

John 6:53 makes it a bit more conditional. If we don't receive the flesh and blood of Christ, we have no life. (Obviously this means spiritual life)

Then why is it that churches teach to just believe? That isn't what the Bible says.

v. 54 "Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day."

Now, many argue that this is "figuratively" speaking. Well, if that were the case, Jesus Christ wouldn't have continued by saying this:

v. 55 "For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink."

Okay, so the one thing we must do to have eternal life, is receive the flesh and blood of Christ....How?

- As we saw the teachings that Apostle Paul passed on from Christ, on the Passover night, Jesus Christ gave his disciples the bread and wine which became his body and blood. In fact, He even waited for an appointed time to keep this feast.

"When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. Jesus said to them, " I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer." Lk 22:14-15

Did he say I eagerly desire to eat communion or eucharist? Where did those terms even come from? The Bible clearly states that Jesus called the New Covenant with his body and blood, the Passover. (v. 19-20)

Now that we can clearly see the Passover is the real food and drink that Christ was referring to when he said that we must receive it to enter eternal life, we can also understand the sign in which the Root of David will give us to know that Christ has come again to bring Salvation.

In 1948 Christ Ahnsahnghong was baptized in accordance with biblical prophecy at the age of 30. He re-established the New Covenant Passover which has been abolished since AD 325 by the Council of Nicaea.

But didn't Jesus Christ say HE was the Root and the Offspring of David? Then wouldn't Jesus himself bring us the Passover?

"Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it...and I will also write on him my New Name. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches." Rev. 3:12-13

Okay so, Jesus Christ says here that he will give us a new name. Then if there is a new name, what is the only name that second coming Christ cannot have? That's right, Jesus (well and Jehovah).

The Church of God has been re-established just as Christ prophesied, bringing back every true teaching of the Bible. Up until this point many have gone to various places to increase in knowledge and seek the truth, that is why there are so very many denominations of Christianity. To all those who believe in Jesus Christ, this is his testimony for the churches. Without Christ Ahnsahnghong coming again to unseal the Words of the Bible we would have never known that there is a way to receive eternal life. Of course we have to believe (Ro 10:9), isn't that a given? The hard part is, believing the Christ that has come again. But I'll state it the same way I have before in previous blogs, How do you think the Jews felt 2000 years ago when they were told that the son of Joseph, their neighbor, the carpenter, Jesus Christ, was in fact the Messiah they were waiting for?

You tell me now it's just by believing in God.
