The Bible tells us that everything that was written in the past, was written to teach us, so that through each and every scripture WE may have hope.(Ro 15:4) These very words written in the book of Romans were written for us, in this generation.

God gave us the Bible for far greater reasons than many people perceive it to be necessary for in these days. I've been told many times that people merely rest on faith and hope. But where does that hope come from? Only the word of God gives us hope.

Then, what is it that we're hoping for, and what does the Bible teach us in the past, that we must learn from and use as a lesson in this day and age?

Today every Christian has their hope and faith set on Jesus Christ.
2000 years ago, the case was the not the same.

"When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, "Who do people say the Son of Man is?"
They replied, "Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets."
Matthew 16:13-14

or worse, what did people call his followers?...

"We have found this man to be a troublemaker, stirring up riots among the Jews all over the world. He is a ringleader of the Nazarene sect.." Acts 24:5

When Christ first came to this earth, he was rejected to the point of death and mocked every step of the way. Today, if anyone were to blaspheme Christ in that way and call Christianity a cult, they'd be laughed at because of the large mass of believers.

The Teachers of the Law and those who rejected Christ were many. They believed in their one and only God, Jehovah God to be their true Savior, and no one else. It wasn't until centuries later that Christianity became a favored religion, and Christ was recognized as the Savior.

In 1964 the Church of God was established by Christ Ahnsahnghong, who was baptized in 1948 as prophesied. The followers were very few and many Christians mocked them for their beliefs. They believe that God came in the flesh to bring Salvation. They believe in the scriptures that testify to this. However, if we do a google search on the internet, or ask people who Christ Ahnsahnghong is, they will say, he is the leader of a cult.


It's easy to believe in Jesus Christ now, it wasn't when he came though. However, those who did believe in him, were the ones to receive eternal life. His disciples saw him for who he was, the Savior in their age, the age of the son.

Now we are living in the age of the Holy Spirit. I've asked many people who they say Christ Ahnsahnghong is and they tell me:

"He is a korean man that people claim to be God."

"They said, 'Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? How can he now say, 'I came down from heaven?" John 6:42

Just as we were foretold, history is repeating itself and teaching us something. We were given these scriptures to learn from them. Those who rejected Christ were cursed and didn't enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Most importantly, Christ testified to his coming again and just as he said "The Bread of God is He who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world." Jn 6:32-33....he also said this....

"He who has an ear let him hear what the Spirit says to the Churches. To him who overcomes, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it known only to him who receives it." Revelation 2:17

Jesus was the Stone the builders rejected(Ac 4:11)and he also called himself the Manna from heaven(Jn 6:47-50)

When Christ gives us his new name, it won't be on bread and white stones falling from heaven, it will be given to us by his second coming, in the flesh.

Although many rejected Jesus Christ we know that the ones who entered the Kingdom of heaven were the disciples who firmly believed in their Savior that the scriptures testified to come in the flesh. The prophesies of Christ were written just as they are written for our generation, in parables. However, we can learn that even though he was prophesied to come in a cloud, he came in the flesh, so he testified that he would come again, in the same way. As he said He was the Manna from heaven, so he said this same Manna will be given in the last days. (This is why the Jews rejected him, they expected something more)

Although many reject Christ Ahnsahnghong, he is the Manna from heaven, he is the White Stone, He is the second coming of Jesus Christ, He gave us his New Name. He came to this earth as prophesied to bring Salvation to those who are waiting for him. (Hebrews 9:28)

This is the lesson we must learn from the mistakes that people made in the past. Do not reject the Savior that has come, because without him, we cannot receive eternal life. And what is more, in this prophetical time period, he has revealed his bride and through them, The water of Life, Eternal life, is given to those who hear the word of God and follow it.

"I will also write on him my new name. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the Churches."

"The Spirit and the Bride say "Come!" And let him who hears say, "Come!" Whoever is thirsty let him come, and whoever wishes let him take the free gift of the water of life." Rev 22:17
