The Passover of Christ is once a year

Wednesday, December 30, 2009

Many people are not familiar with Passover and those who know about call it the Jewish Passover. 3500 years ago Jehovah God commanded the Israelites to keep the Passover by slaughtering a lamb and those who kept it were saved from the destruction.

Jesus Christ came 2,000 years ago and he commanded his disciples to keep the Passover, not killing a lamb but by eating his flesh and his blood for he came as the Passover lamb for the forgiveness of sins.

1Corinthians 5:7 Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.

Jesus Christ made this Passover an everlasting covenant for his children; that include us, Christians. Christ kept Passover as an example not only for the disciples but also for us, if we don’t keep the Passover we can’t receive Eternal Life, therefore we can’t go to Heaven.

John 6:53 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. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.

Only on the night of the Passover Jesus said this bread is my body and this wine is my blood (Matthew 17:26-28). But when in AD325 by the Council of Nicaea Constantine abolished the Passover, he instituted Communion, but such thing is not in the Bible, is not part of the teachings from Christ but from men. Passover disappeared and that’s when everyone started keeping what they thought it was Passover and keeping it whenever they wanted.

We have 850 denominations and each follows as they please, some keep Communion, others Eucharist or the Holy supper. Some keep it every week, others once a month and others every 6 months. Not only has the name been changed but also a date. God already gave an appointed time to the Passover.

Leviticus 23:4 " 'These are the LORD's appointed feasts, the sacred assemblies you are to proclaim at their appointed times: The LORD's Passover begins at twilight on the fourteenth day of the first month.’ "

By sacred calendar the Passover is to be kept on January 14th at twilight (sunset) not whenever we want for we can’t change Gods commands, it is only once a year. Does it matter the date? YES! GOD SAID! We can’t take his words lightly we have to do as he said.

Exodus 13:10 You must keep this ordinance at the appointed time year after year.

Please consider the Passover, it’s for our salvation. Nowadays we keep the Passover because of our Father Christ Ahnsahnghong, he is the 2nd Coming Christ who brought back the Passover.

We must keep the Sabbath Day

Many people still insist we don’t have to keep the Sabbath Day as the day of worship because it is part of the law; Jesus Christ came 2,000 years ago and kept the Sabbath as an example for us and also God remarked in the Bible that in the last days we must keep the law of Moses and the prophets, this includes the Sabbath Day.

Malachi 4:4 "Remember the law of my servant Moses, the decrees and laws I gave him at Horeb for all Israel.

Read this chapter and you will see that it’s referring to the last days, then we must keep the Sabbath, God didn’t abolish the Sabbath day.

Many people love to show Colossians 2:16 to state we don’t have to keep the Sabbath Day…

Colossians 2:16 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day.

Does this mean not to keep the Sabbath Day?

Colossians 2:13 When you were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your sinful nature, God made you alive with Christ. He forgave us all our sins, having canceled the written code, with its regulations, that was against us and that stood opposed to us; he took it away, nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.

By reading verse 16 only you would easily interpret that the Sabbath doesn’t have to be kept, but if you read carefully Apostle Paul was referring to the written code, the Law of Moses, no longer we have to keep the Sabbath in the old way but as Christ kept it for he showed us the reality.

Hebrews 8:8 But 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…

Imagine if God would have left the Sabbath with its old regulations (Ex 12:12, Num28:9, Lev 24:5), nobody would be keeping the Sabbath. He made it easy for us, calling us to worship him in spirit and in truth studying from the Scriptures, how difficult can that be? Not at all!

There’s no excuse for not keeping the Sabbath Day. It is for our salvation God made the Sabbath Day. To say Sunday worship or any other day is ok, is wrong for God designated the Sabbath as the day of worship.

Revelation 22:18 I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book. And if anyone takes words away from this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.

In the World Mission Society Church of God we keep the Sabbath Day thanks to our Heavenly Father Ahnsahnghong, by giving us the Feasts of God.

How can we recognize 2nd Coming Christ?

I am pretty sure everyone is familiar with this image; its a picture of “Jesus Christ”. Where in the Bible it says Jesus Christ was blond, blue eyes, long hair?

Isaiah 53:2 He grew up before him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of dry ground. He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.

All Scriptures testify about Jesus Christ, even his appearance was described in the Bible, yet nowadays everyone has one of these images and prays or worships it. In God’s eyes this is just an idol (Leviticus 26:1) which is something God does not want us to have. And if Jesus Christ would have come like this you think he would have been rejected? I don’t think so. Then how can we recognize Jesus Christ and not make our own image of who we think God is?

John 6:68 Simon Peter answered him, "Lord, to whom we shall go? You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God."

2,000 years ago only the disciples followed Jesus Christ because they didn’t see his outer appearance but they understood he was God because he fulfilled all prophecies and gave them the words of Eternal Life. Jesus Christ taught them how to keep the Passover and thru it they were saved (John 6:53-54).

Why I bring this up? Because Christ came again according to the Bible and the story repeats itself with 2nd Coming Christ, how did we recognize him? He didn’t come with trumpet calls, angels, power and glory, we recognize him because he gave the words of life. He gave us the Passover, he is Christ Ahnsahnghong, and he is testified in the Bible.

Know true God thru the Bible, not thru whatever image people made. Christ Ahnsahnghong is in the Bible. Though the teachers of the law knew the whole scriptures and were waiting for the Messiah they didn’t believe in him because they saw him with physical eyes, God is not physical but Spirit, the only way to recognize him is thru the prophecies in the Bible.

Is December 25th the birth of Christ?

Biblical Evidence Shows Jesus Christ Wasn't Born on Dec. 25

History convincingly shows that Dec. 25 was popularized as the date for Christmas, not because Christ was born on that day but because it was already popular in pagan religious celebrations as the birthday of the sun.

But is it possible that Dec. 25 could be the day of Christ's birth?

"Lacking any scriptural pointers to Jesus's birthday, early Christian teachers suggested dates all over the calendar. Clement. . . picked November 18. Hippolytus . . . figured Christ must have been born on a Wednesday . . . An anonymous document[,] believed to have been written in North Africa around A.D. 243, placed Jesus's birth on March 28" (Jeffery Sheler, U.S. News & World Report, "In Search of Christmas," Dec. 23, 1996, p. 58).

A careful analysis of Scripture, however, clearly indicates that Dec. 25 is an unlikely date for Christ's birth. Here are two primary reasons:

First, we know that shepherds were in the fields watching their flocks at the time of Jesus' birth (Luke 2:7-8). Shepherds were not in the fields during December. According to Celebrations: The Complete Book of American Holidays, Luke's account "suggests that Jesus may have been born in summer or early fall. Since December is cold and rainy in Judea, it is likely the shepherds would have sought shelter for their flocks at night" (p. 309).

Similarly, The Interpreter's One-Volume Commentary says this passage argues "against the birth [of Christ] occurring on Dec. 25 since the weather would not have permitted" shepherds watching over their flocks in the fields at night.

Second, Jesus' parents came to Bethlehem to register in a Roman census (Luke 2:1-4). Such censuses were not taken in winter, when temperatures often dropped below freezing and roads were in poor condition. Taking a census under such conditions would have been self-defeating.

Given the difficulties and the desire to bring pagans into Christianity, "the important fact then . . . to get clearly into your head is that the fixing of the date as December 25th was a compromise with paganism" (William Walsh, The Story of Santa Klaus, 1970, p. 62).

If Jesus Christ wasn't born on Dec. 25, does the Bible indicate when He was born? The biblical accounts point to the fall of the year as the most likely time of Jesus' birth, based on the conception and birth of John the Baptist.

Since Elizabeth (John's mother) was in her sixth month of pregnancy when Jesus was conceived (Luke 1:24-36), we can determine the approximate time of year Jesus was born if we know when John was born. John's father, Zacharias, was a priest serving in the Jerusalem temple during the course of Abijah (Luke 1:5). Historical calculations indicate this course of service corresponded to June 13-19 in that year (The Companion Bible, 1974, Appendix 179, p. 200).

It was during this time of temple service that Zacharias learned that he and his wife Elizabeth would have a child (Luke 1:8-13). After he completed his service and traveled home, Elizabeth conceived (verses 23-24). Assuming John's conception took place near the end of June, adding nine months brings us to the end of March as the most likely time for John's birth. Adding another six months (the difference in ages between John and Jesus) brings us to the end of September as the likely time of Jesus' birth.

This is the reason why we, the World Mission Society Church of God don't celebrate Christmas. Its not in the Bible, it was established by Constantine.

Mark 7:8 "You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men."

Why would God compare the Kingdom of Heaven with a Wedding Banquet if there’s no Bride?

Matthew 22:1 Jesus spoke to them again in parables, saying: "The kingdom of heaven is like a king who prepared a wedding banquet for his son. He sent his servants to those who had been invited to the banquet to tell them to come, but they refused to come. "Then he sent some more servants and said, 'Tell those who have been invited that I have prepared my dinner: My oxen and fattened cattle have been butchered, and everything is ready. Come to the wedding banquet.' "But they paid no attention and went off—one to his field, another to his business. The rest seized his servants, mistreated them and killed them. The king was enraged. He sent his army and destroyed those murderers and burned their city. "Then he said to his servants, 'The wedding banquet is ready, but those I invited did not deserve to come. Go to the street corners and invite to the banquet anyone you find.' So the servants went out into the streets and gathered all the people they could find, both good and bad, and the wedding hall was filled with guests. "But when the king came in to see the guests, he noticed a man there who was not wearing wedding clothes.” ’Friend,' he asked, 'how did you get in here without wedding clothes?' The man was speechless. "Then the king told the attendants, 'Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.' "For many are invited, but few are chosen."

Kingdom of Heaven= Wedding Banquet

Why is the Bride not mentioned? All the main factors of a wedding are described except the Bride. But without the Bride a wedding cannot start, there’s no meaning to celebrate a wedding without her. She is the most important and waited factor. Since Kingdom of Heaven= Wedding Banquet, if there’s no bride Kingdom of Heaven cannot start either.

Revelation 19:7 Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.

Second Coming Christ is the lamb testified in the book of Revelation. Only he can show us his Bride who is to come in the flesh in the last days. 2,000 years ago Jesus Christ didn’t show his bride because she is to appear at last like all brides do.

Revelation 21:9 …"Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb." And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.

Holy City Jerusalem is the Bride without her we can’t go to the Kingdom of Heaven.

Galatians 4:26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.

Can we deny Word of God? If I were you I wouldn’t. Heavenly Mother exist, she is God the Mother.

Without knowing the Law we can’t come to Christ

I am so thankful to be in the right Church after wandering for so many years looking for the truth. The most amazing part is that we can prove that the World Mission Society Church of God is the Church established by God as his dwelling place. We don’t go to Church just to chill or to make friends, but people’s purpose in going to the Church is for salvation and this salvation only comes from Christ. Then the moment we decide to attend Church we have to make sure that Church keeps all of God’s laws.

Colossians 2:17 These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.

In the Old Testament the people of God keep the old covenant, the law, but now as Christians we have to follow Christ, he came and fulfilled the Old Testament law. Many state we don’t have to keep the law anymore but without keeping the law we can’t now the reality which is Christ.
Christ is male and female according to the Bible….

2 Corinthians 4:4 The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.

Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.

How come many people don’t know that Christ is not only male but also female? Because they don’t keep the laws of God, everyone says ‘just believe’, but that’s not enough. By having our own concept we can miss the chance of knowing who is God.

Mark 7:8 You have let go of the commands of God and are holding on to the traditions of men."

Only Zion is the place where God will place his laws, Zion is where God’s Feasts are being kept (Isaiah 33:20). We keep the Feasts of God, not of men. If you have not come to Zion then you can’t say you know God, God is in Zion.

Psalm 132:13 For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling: "This is my resting place for ever and ever; here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it…

This is God’s words not ours, come to the Church of God World Mission Society and keep God’s Feasts.

Holy Spirit came in the flesh

To those who insist that the Holy Spirit will not come in the flesh there’s just one thing to express…WRONG!!!

First we must understand that God divided 6,000 years of creation in 3 ages: Father, Son and Holy Spirit, for each age God came playing a different role and name. Father and Son’s age already passed, so the only one left is the Holy Spirit, and we are living in this age, the age when Holy Spirit, Second Coming Christ, will come.

Second, what is the purpose of the Holy Spirit to come? For salvation…

Hebrews 9:28 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.

How can he give salvation if he comes as a spirit? How would you know if you receive the salvation from the Holy Spirit if you can’t see it? Does it make sense to think that the Holy Spirit is a spirit? No!

John 14:16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever— the Spirit of truth.

John 14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit…

John 4:24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.

God is Spirit yet 3500 years ago he came in the flesh, then you tell me if the Holy Spirit can’t come in the flesh? Of course he can because Holy Spirit and Jehovah God is one.

Genesis 18:1 Abraham looked up and saw three men standing nearby. When he saw them, he hurried from the entrance of his tent to meet them and bowed low to the ground. He said, "If I have found favor in your eyes, my lord, do not pass your servant by. Let a little water be brought, and then you may all wash your feet and rest under this tree. Let me get you something to eat, so you can be refreshed and then go on your way—now that you have come to your servant."

Holy Spirit will not come as spirit but in the flesh, to give us salvation and with a new name. In the last days Spirit and the Bride are the ones calling, if they don’t come in the flesh how can we go to them? It doesn’t make any sense. The bride also will come in the flesh because she is coming down out of heaven (Revelation 21:9).

2 Corinthians 3:17 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

For us Holy Spirit came in the flesh that is why we are free from sin and death. Only thru the Bible you can realize this perfect truth. Christ Ahnsahnghong is the Holy Spirit and Jerusalem Mother is the Bride.

The Coming of the Holy Spirit is Jesus’ Second Coming

Thru the Trinity is proven that Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit is one God. When Jesus Christ comes a second time, in the last days, he will play the role of the Holy Spirit.

But many insist that the Holy Spirit already came 2,000 years ago. According to the Bible only the Holy Spirit will teach us everything, yet Apostle Paul testified that they knew only in parts…

John 14:26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.

1 Corinthians 4:5 Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait till the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of men's hearts. At that time each will receive his praise from God.

If Holy Spirit came 2,000 why did Apostle Paul testify this?

1 Corinthians 13:9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part…

Hebrews 5:11 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn.

And it’s true, the prophecy of King David, Melchizedek, Last Adam, Wedding Banquet were not completely fulfilled at that time because it is Holy Spirit who will come to completely fulfill them.
2,000 years ago they received the gift of tongues from the Holy Spirit not the Holy Spirit. God enable them to speak the message of salvation in different languages and save many souls.

Acts 1:3 After his suffering, he showed himself to these men and gave many convincing proofs that he was alive. He appeared to them over a period of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God. On one occasion, while he was eating with them, he gave them this command: "Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised, which you have heard me speak about.

Holy Spirit came already but not 2000 years ago but in 1948 with the name Ahnsahnghong and fulfilled everything that remained unfulfilled as a plan of God.

Root of David Christ Ahnsahnghong

When Jevohah God testified his coming as a son (Jesus Christ) he gave the way to recognize him when he came in the flesh, and that sign was the throne of David…

Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders…He will reign on David's throne and over his kingdom…

Anyone who came as a son and sat on David’s throne that was Jehovah God in the flesh, and this was fulfilled by Jesus Christ (Luke 1:31). King David’s throne is a very important prophecy but many believe that David’s throne has nothing to do with Christ but it does.

2 Samuel 5:3 When all the elders of Israel had come to King David at Hebron, the king made a compact with them at Hebron before the LORD, and they anointed David king over Israel. David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned forty years.

Since Jesus Christ sat on David’s Throne, he is prophetical K. David, no that he was King David NO! And as prophetical K. David he has to fulfill the prophetical points of David’s throne which is becoming king at the age of 30 and reigning for 40 years. Jesus Christ began his ministry at the age of 30 (Luke 3:21) but he didn’t reign for 40 years but only for 3 years leaving 37 years outstanding. Then what should happen? All of God’s prophecy must be fulfilled; this one will not be an exception. Then what must happen? Christ has to come again to fulfill the remaining 37 years.

Hebrews 9:28 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.

When Christ comes again he will come as prophetical King David and complete the remaining 37 years. Christ Ahnsahnghong came as the Prophetical King David. He fulfilled the 37 years. How do we know he is the prophetical King 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.

To prophetical King David was promised the everlasting covenant of the Passover (Luke 22:20).

Then whoever comes as the prophetical King David has to bring the Passover, this is the way to recognize him. Christ Ahnsahnghong began his ministry by being baptized at the age of 30 and brought back the Passover which gives us Eternal Life. And since he is the Root of David, he showed us his Bride, Our Heavenly Mother Jerusalem.

Second Coming Christ Has a Bride!

Whenever we testify of Christ having a Bride, people think we are referring to first coming Christ because according to the well known book The Da Vinci Code, Jesus Christ had a wife (many refer to Mary Magdalene as his wife), but this is not true, only the Bible is a book of prophecy and facts of God Almighty. Christ will have a wife, a bride but she will appear in the last day.

Revelation 19:7 Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear." (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of the saints).

The Bride described in Revelation is the wife of the lamb, and this lamb is the Root of David. If we understand who is the Root of David then we can clearly see that this is the Bride of 2nd Coming Christ.

Revelation 5:1 …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."
Who is the Root of David?

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."

The Lamb, the Root of David is Jesus Christ, not first coming though but Second Coming Christ. The book of Revelation testifies about his second coming. It is in the last day when Second Coming Christ will appear with his Bride.

Christ Ahnsahnghong is the Root of David, he brought us back our Heavenly Mother Jerusalem

Galatians 4:26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.

Jerusalem is Our Mother and Christ Ahnsahnghong is the Root of David. How do we know???

To be continued….
