God the Mother IS Eternal Life!

Everyone who believes in Christ has the hope that after this life, they go to heaven. Going to heaven means having eternal life (no, in heaven you will NOT die). So then, in the simplest terms, what is the way to have eternal life so that you can assure your place in heaven? Let's see what Christ said...

John 17:3 "Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent."

By now, who doesn't know Jesus Christ? Then what did he mean when he said, "...the only true God...". According to Christ, if we know true God, then this is eternal life. It is extremely important to know true God. Let's see how the bible says we can come to know our God.

Romans 1:19 "since what may be known about God is plain to them...for since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities- his eternal power and divine nature- have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse."

According to the bible, what we should know about God is plain and simple. From the creation God's invisible qualities and even divine nature have been seen if only we understand what has been made. Then the creation testifies to the creator. So what did God make? Well, God made mankind didn't he? So it is through mankind that we should know our God. Remember, knowing true God is eternal life. Let's see our true creator God in the beginning.

Genesis 1:26 'Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule..."

God almighty created man after God's own image, after God's likeness. So what is God's image that we were made to be like? Well...

Genesis 1:27 "So God created the image of God...male and female he created them."
Mankind = image of God. As the image of God, mankind was created both male and female. Since the creator God was plural "Let us..our", the creation that was made after God's likeness was also plural *male/female*. God's male image is known to us as our Father in heaven (Matt 6:9). God's female image is known to us as our Mother in heaven (Galatians 4:26). Anyone who denies God's female image denies God's creation, females. Its impossible. Now this is eternal life: that they may know true God, our Father and Mother who are in heaven! Look around, every man and woman was created as the image of God. Now, can you clearly see God's divine nature? Hope so...

Be Saved in the name Ahnsahnghong pt 2

So we left off understanding that the names of God and baptism are an essential part in order to receive the goal of our faith, salvation.

However... what makes the Church of God so sure of believing in the name Christ Ahn Sahng Hong as the name of the Holy Spirit?

[Isaiah 9:6 For a child is born to us,
a son is given to us.
The government will rest on his shoulders.
And he will be called:
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.]

Isaiah prophesied of a child, a son being born and having the titles of Mighty God and Everlasting Father. However... how many Mighty Gods and Everlasting Fathers are there in the bible? Surely only one. If Isaiah spoke of one being Mighty God and one being Everlasting Father surely he must know who it is since God revealed it to him. From his point of view we can see then who is this child and this son.

[Isaiah 63:16 Surely you are still our Father!
Even if Abraham and Jacob[a] would disown us,
Lord, you would still be our Father.
You are our Redeemer from ages past.]

[Isaiah 64:8 And yet, O Lord, you are our Father.
We are the clay, and you are the potter.
We all are formed by your hand.]

In the book of Isaiah the "Lord" refers to Jehovah God. Isaiah spoke of Jehovah God being the only father and redeemer. Therefore it is easy to see that the prophecy of a child and son being born with the titles Mighty God and Everlasting Father refer to Jehovah God's coming in the flesh playing the role of a child and son.

Yet when Jehovah God fulfilled this prophecy... did he continue using the name Jehovah? Let's take a look at the fulfillment of this prophecy according to the bible.

[Luke 1:31 You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you will name him Jesus. 32 He will be very great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his ancestor David. 33 And he will reign over Israel forever; his Kingdom will never end!”]

At the time the prophecy of Jehovah God's coming in the flesh was fulfilled, as spoken through the prophet Isaiah, his name changed. Even though it is still the same Almighty God, his name changed to Jesus and he began to play the role of a son.

However the Jews at that time had awaited the coming of the Messiah only to be disappointed when they met Jesus. They constantly badgered him with insults and reproach saying he was a mere man who claimed to be God. Even though they studied the bible so diligently why did they fail to recognize the Christ?

...because of their fixed concept. They expected Jehovah's coming to be glorious and majestic but when they saw Jesus Christ they were appalled at his appearance that of a root out of dry ground. Hence they rejected the name of Jesus Christ therefore rejecting salvation.

Then what about the name of the Holy Spirit... how can we truly name his name so that we don't fall into the same trap that the Jews fell into 2,000 years ago?

Isaiah 52:

5 "And now what do I have here?" declares the LORD.
"For my people have been taken away for nothing,
and those who rule them mock,"
declares the LORD.
"And all day long
my name is constantly blasphemed.

6 Therefore my people will know my name;
therefore in that day they will know
that it is I who foretold it.
Yes, it is I."

In the book of Isaiah we can understand that ONLY the people of God know God's name. Out of 850 Christian denominations which church is going to tell you they are not God's people? Of course they all claim to be God's people yet we need to see through the bible who are truly God's people...

Be Saved in the name of Ahnsahnghong

One of the hardest things people find hard to grasp is God's new name in the age of Holy Spirit, the new name Ahn Sahng Hong. But looking carefully at some verses we can see that we must let go of our fixed concept and believe the truth in the bible. Let us make a careful study of why we should believe with conviction the name of Christ Ahn Sahng Hong.

Matthew 28:18 Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. 20 Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

Jesus Christ taught us that after baptism in the name of the Father Jehovah, the name of Son Jesus and the name of the Holy Spirit Christ Ahnsahnghong (as prophesied in the bible) we can gain salvation. We can say that baptism and God's names are very critical in our salvation.

It is written:
1Peter:1:21 And that water is a picture of baptism, which now saves you, not by removing dirt from your body, but as a response to God from a clean conscience. It is effective because of the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

And also:
John 20:30-31 The disciples saw Jesus do many other miraculous signs in addition to the ones recorded in this book. 31 But these are written so that you may continue to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in him you will have life by the power of his name.

Baptism and the names of God go hand in hand. That is why baptism in the names of God brings salvation.

Then how are we so sure of the Holy Spirit's name being Ahnsahnghong in order to receive the full baptism with all the three names of God?

Christ AhnsahngHong is the Root of David

Rev 5:2And 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."

Apostle John wept b/c he saw that the Bible had been sealed and that no one could open it up except for the Root of David. Then why was He so distressed that no one could open the scroll? This is because the Bible contains Even though nowadays many churches claim to understand the mysteries of the Bible, if they do not know the Root of David then they dont really understand the Bible at all. Then which church has the Root of David?

Hosea 3:5Afterward the Israelites will return and seek the LORD their God and David their king. They will come trembling to the LORD and to his blessings in the last days.

Revelation 22:16"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."

In the book of Revelation, first Coming Christ already had ascended to heaven. Then this must be referring to second Coming Christ being the Root of David. There are many who claim to be the second coming Christ and the Root of David nowadays, then what is the sign by which we can recognize who is the true Root of David?

Isaiah 55:3 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.

What is the everlasting covenant promised to David?
Hebrews 13:20May 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,

The everlasting covenant mentioned in Isaiah must be the same as the eternal covenant mentioned here in Hebrews. This covenant that was promised only to David was made with blood. Then what is the blood of the eternal covenant?

Luke 22:20In 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.

Only the Root of David who has the Passover can open the Bible that has been sealed. Only Christ AhnsahngHong has brought the Passover, therefore He must be without a doubt the Root of David. That is why while most churches are celebrating pagan Feasts such as X-mas or Sunday worship, the Church of God World Mission keep the feasts of God that are in the Bible. Thanks to Christ AhnsahngHong, The Root of David who revealed the mysteries of the Bible to us so that we could have eternal life.

Christ AhnsahngHong showed what is true Faith

Everyone says they have salvation through faith. What kind of faith should we have then?

Romans 10:17 17Consequently, faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the word of Christ.

In order to have Faith, we have to hear the word of Christ. We can find Christ's word in the Bible, yet some who do not follow the Bible claim to have faith. Is that true faith? Actually, it Dan 7:25 He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws. The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time.

This is actually a prophecy about Constantine who changed God's Sabbath to Sunday and the Passover to Communion. Then those who follow these rules are not receiving the word from Christ.

John 10:27My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.

If we hear God's voice we will follow what God taught. Even God commended those in the Bible who by faith kept God's commands.

Hebrews 11:24By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh's daughter.
Hebrews 11:28By faith he kept the Passover and the sprinkling of blood, so that the destroyer of the firstborn would not touch the firstborn of Israel.

By faith Moses kept the Passover.Then in God's viewpoint those who keep the Passover have faith. But who keeps the Passover nowadays? No one except the Church of God world Mission Society.

Hebrews 11:6And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.

James 2:26As the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without deeds is dead.

In order to have true faith, we have to please God. When we follow man's teachings we fail to please God and thus do not have true faith. 2,000 years ago Jesus commanded us to do many things such as celebrate the Passover and the Feasts of God not Sunday, communion,x-mas,etc.
He also said:
12Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my new name.

Jesus Christ came with the new name of Christ AhnsahngHong in this last age. Then if we have true faith we should believe in Christ AhnsahngHong and follow His commands. He is the second coming Christ who brought all the truths of the Bible back.
