The World Mission Society Church of God believes in Second Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong because He fulfilled all the prophecies in the Bible concerning Jesus’ second coming. Most importantly, Christ Ahnsahnghong restored a truth that had been lost for more than 1,600 years: the New Covenant Passover. The Passover, which contains God’s promise of eternal life, is the sign that God said in the Bible would let God’s people recognize the Savior in this age.
Two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ spoke to people in parables (Mt 13:34). And these parables contained secrets of the kingdom of heaven, which were hidden since the creation of the world (Mt 13:10). One of these secrets hidden in the story of the creation involves the tree of life, which has the power to give us eternal life. Only Jesus Christ can decipher this parable. Because Christ Ahnsahnghong revealed this mystery, He proved He is Second Coming Jesus.
The Origin of Mortality
Many people are familiar with the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. God warned them not to eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil. However, they disobeyed God’s words and sinned.
The LORD God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it. But the LORD God warned him, “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden—except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.”
Genesis 2:15 (NLT)
Because of their disobedience, Adam and Eve became mortal beings and eventually died. This is the origin of death, which affects all of humanity. Since death originated in the Garden of Eden after Adam and Eve ate from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, eternal life must also exist there.
Then the LORD God said, “Look, the human beings have become like us, knowing both good and evil. What if they reach out, take fruit from the tree of life, and eat it? Then they will live forever!”
Genesis 3:22-24 (NLT)
If we eat from the tree of life, we can live forever. However, because we sinned against God, He blocked the way to the tree of life, and we could no longer live forever.
So the LORD God banished them from the Garden of Eden, and he sent Adam out to cultivate the ground from which he had been made. After sending them out, the LORD God stationed mighty cherubim to the east of the Garden of Eden. And he placed a flaming sword that flashed back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life.
Genesis 3:23-24 (NLT)
God had blocked the way to the tree of life and it became hidden from the rest of humanity for thousands of years. Since the creation, God had made the tree of life impossible to access. And only God has the power and authority to unblock it and grant us access again.
Christ Grants Access to the Tree of Life
Two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ was on this earth and gave many teachings. Through His ministry and His teachings, He let us know the purpose of His coming to the earth.
“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”
Jesus said He came to give us life to the full. In other words, His purpose in coming was to grant us eternal life. However, as seen in the story of the creation, the tree of life can grant us eternal life. So, Jesus must have come to the earth to grant us access to the tree of life.
So Jesus said again, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you cannot have eternal life within you. But anyone who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise that person at the last day.”
John 6:53-54 (NLT)
In the Garden of Eden, unless we ate from the tree of life, we could not live forever. Likewise, unless we eat Jesus’ flesh and drink His blood, we cannot live forever. This must mean that Jesus’ flesh and blood are the reality of the tree of life. The tree of life is the parable Jesus spoke about 2,000 years ago; and His body and blood are the reality. Christ also made clear to us how we can eat His flesh and drink His blood.
. . . Jesus took some bread and blessed it. Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying, “Take this and eat it, for this is my body.” And he took a cup of wine and gave thanks to God for it. He gave it to them and said,“Each of you drink from it, for this is my blood, which confirms the covenant between God and his people. It is poured out as a sacrifice to forgive the sins of many.”
Matthew 26:26-28 (NLT)
“Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?” . . . So, the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.
During the Passover ceremony, Jesus blessed the Passover bread and wine saying they were His body and blood. Through the Passover, we can eat Jesus’ flesh and drink His blood, and obtain eternal life according to His words of promise. Therefore, through the Passover, Jesus Christ granted us access to the tree of life, which lets us know that He is God Almighty who came in the human form.
Christ Ahnsahnghong Restored Access to the Tree of Life
Two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ opened the way for mankind to eat from the tree of life. He established the New Covenant Passover the night before His crucifixion, fulfilling the goal of His coming to the earth.
Christians of the Early Church celebrated the New Covenant Passover for three centuries after Jesus ascended to the kingdom of heaven. But in A.D. 325, the Council of Nicaea abolished the New Covenant Passover. From that time on, God’s people did not have access to the tree of life. However, God knew this would take place and prophesied that He would come to the earth a second time to restore the way of salvation.
so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
God left us may prophecies in the Bible to let us know that Christ would appear a second time to bring salvation. One of those teachings is that the re-establishment of the New Covenant Passover would be the sign of Christ’s second coming because this is something that only God can do when He comes in the human form.
In 1948, in fulfillment of the Bible’s lesson of the fig tree (Mt 24:32), Christ Ahnsahnghong began preaching about the Passover. Through this, He let us know He was Second Coming Jesus (Rev 3:12). Through the Passover, Christ Ahnsahnghong allowed us to eat Christ’s flesh and blood again to receive the promised eternal life. And through the restoration of the Passover, He granted us access to eat again from the tree of life.
The Bible already told us that only God has the power and authority to do this. This is why the World Mission Society Church of God believes and follows Christ Ahnsahnghong as Second Coming Christ. There are many other prophecies that testify to Him. Visit your local Church of God and learn more about Christ Ahnsahnghong so that you, too, may eat from the tree of life and live forever.
