When I visited our Church in the USA, I happened to read a framed poem hung on the wall entitled Footprints in the Sand: "One night I dreamed a dream. I was walking along the beach with my Lord. Across the dark sky flashed scenes from my life. For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the land, one belonging to me and one to my Lord. When the last scene of my life shot before me I looked back at the footprints in the sand. There was only one set of footprints. I realized that this was at the lowest and saddest times of my life. This always bothered me and I questioned the Lord about my dilemma. ‘Lord, You told me when I decided to follow You, You would walk and talk with me all the way. But I'm aware that during the most troublesome times of my life there is only one set of footprints. I just don't understand why, when I need You most, You leave me.' He whispered, ‘My precious child, I love you and will never leave you, never, ever, during your trials and testings. When you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.' " This poem figuratively portrays God's love. Human love is self-seeking. However, God's love is perfect and unconditional. When we are weighed down with temptations and trials, God carries us and brings us into heaven. He covers us with His feathers and protects us from all dangers. However, sometimes we fail to understand God's love and grumble against God, like the person in the above story. There is nothing to complain about. Everything happens according to the will of God to lead us into the kingdom of heaven.
James 5:7-9 『Be patient, then, brothers, until the Lord's coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop and how patient he is for the autumn and spring rains. You too, be patient and stand firm, because the Lord's coming is near. Don't grumble against each other, brothers, or you will be judged. The Judge is standing at the door!』
1 Cor 10:5-12 『Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered over the desert. … And do not grumble, as some of them did?and were killed by the destroying angel. These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come. …』
Grumbling leads to judgment, and judgment brings destruction. The Bible tells us that it is a grave sin to complain and he who grumbles deserves judgment and death. Think of the Israelites who grumbled against God and against Moses and Aaron, so that they were all destroyed.
Unless we feel the hand of God who helps us in all situations, the passions of our flesh make us grumble. When we restrain the desires of the flesh and entertain the desire of the Spirit, we are able to perceive God's love with our spiritual eyes and run joyfully toward heaven.
Do we believe in God and fear Him to enhance the quality of our life on earth? Not at all. If so, Jesus would have gained worldly power when He came to this earth in the flesh. This earth is a spiritual prison?the city of refuge, not a comfortable place. Everyone carries his own cross in his or her life.
However, we are guaranteed to reap the fruits of our labor: the kingdom of heaven, eternal life, salvation, a royal priesthood, God's unfailing love, etc. Jesus said, "My kingdom is not of this world" (John 18:36). Keeping these words in mind, let's increase our hope for the eternal kingdom of heaven.

We are children of promise!!!!
Gal. 4:28 『Now you, brothers, like Isaac, are children of promise.』
Then, what promise did God make to those who are called the children of promise? God promised them eternal life.
1 John 2:25 『And this is what he promised us?even eternal life.』
How is eternal life given to us? The Bible says that all things were created by God's will (Rev. 4:11). Among all of the many creatures that God has created, let us focus on the mothers. Since it is written that God created all things by His will, a certain will of God was expressed when He created mothers on this earth. As you know, all creatures have a mother figure. There is not a single creature that can come into existence without a mother.
Our physical life is given to us through our physical mother. For 280 days, a baby's hands, feet, eyes and ears form within his mother's womb. When the time comes, the mother will give birth to her child, shedding blood. We are given life through our mother's great pain. How about our spiritual life? Just as our physical life was given to us through our physical mother, our spiritual life is given to us through our spiritual Mother.
The Bible clearly testifies that our heavenly Mother exists, and that only our heavenly Mother can give us eternal life.
Let us study through the Bible to discover the existence of our spiritual Mother.
Gen. 1:26-27 『Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness..." So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.』
The above verse states that God has two images-a male image and a female image. Until now, we have only known and called upon the male image of God: "Father." Then how should we call upon the female image of God? Logically, we should refer to God's female image as "Mother." This is why God had said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness."
The word "us" is a plural term. "Elohim," the Hebrew word used in place of "God" in Genesis 1:26, directly translates to "Gods," the plural form of the word "God." Therefore, the references to "us" in the book of Genesis refer to God the Father and God the Mother. Some say that the word "us" in this verse indicates God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. If this argument is correct, there should be three types of people in the world-those who were made in the image of God the Father, those who resemble the image of God the Son, and those created in the image of the Holy Spirit. However, on this earth there are only two types of people: men and women. However, the "Gods" mentioned in Genesis 1:26 are the male image of God and the female image of God-God the Father and God the Mother.

If you look into other posts in this blog, probably you will understand it is according to the prophecy of the Bible. Christ Ahnsahnghong is prophesized savior and Church of God World Mission Society deliver only the truth.
Although Israel was a small country 2,000 years ago, it was the holy land where God had chosen to come from. Likewise, although Korea is a small country at the ends of the east, it is a holy land, appointed as the place where God would come for a second time. How blessed are those in the east, those who are saved from the consuming fire of God on the last day! The Bible says that these blessed souls will give glory to the God in the east, shouting for joy. Don’t you want to belong to the group of people who will be saved on the last day, those who have received the Second Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong? He came from Korea, in the east, in accordance with the prophecy. Please break your fixed ideas and listen to the quiet, but strong, voice speaking to your soul. Ahnsahnghong, the Second Coming Christ, is calling to you.

In order to fulfill the prophecies of Melchizedek, Jesus is to come a second time.
Heb. 9:28 『...he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.』
Prophecies to be fulfilled by Second Coming Christ:
1) He will bless us with eternal life through the Passover bread and wine.
2) He will be born among unbelievers ("without father or mother").
3) He will be born of Gentiles ("without genealogy").
4) He is God ("without beginning of days or end of life").
Christ Ahnsahnghong is the one who fulfilled all of these prophecies. How can we not believe in Him when all of the prophecies about the Second Coming Jesus testify that Ahnsahnghong is the Christ? The members of the Church of God believe that Ahnsahnghong is the Second Coming Christ, our Savior! He came in the order of Melchizedek by the words of God testify about Him.
Isa. 25:6 『On this mountain the LORD Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine?the best of meats and the finest of wines ...he will swallow up death forever...In that day they will say, "Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us."』
Before the day of judgment comes, please accept Ahnsahnghong, the Second Coming Christ, who fulfilled the prophecies of Melchizedek. Christ Ahnsahnghong blessed us with eternal life through the bread and wine of the Passover. Therefore, He is our Savior!
Even if a man performs a great miracle or wonder, if he has not come in the order of Melchizedek, he cannot be the Second Coming Christ. Again, although a man may be humble in appearance, if he follows in the order of Melchizedek, he is the Second Coming Christ.
Please recognize the Second Coming Christ through the words of the Bible so that you may receive salvation. The one who follows in the order of Melchizedek is the true God, our Savior.

Rev 2:17 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.
Father Ahnsahnghong came to this earth and brought us the truth of the Passover. After almost 2k years of loosing everything that Christ had sacrificed for, He has returned with the manna from heaven.
John 6:35-58 Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty... It is written in the Prophets: 'They will all be taught by God.' Everyone who listens to the Father and learns from him comes to me. No one has seen the Father except the one who is from God; only he has seen the Father. I tell you the truth, he who believes has everlasting life. I am the bread of life. Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died. But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which a man may eat and not die. I am the living bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this bread, he will live forever. This bread is my flesh, which I will give for the life of the world. Then the Jews began to argue sharply among themselves, "How can this man give us his flesh to eat?" Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him. Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me.This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your forefathers ate manna and died, but he who feeds on this bread will live forever."
Father Ahnsahnghong has restored the Passover of the new covenant that allows us to eat and receive eternal life through the body and blood of Christ. Who knew how to receive eternal life?! Even though Christ Ahnsahnghong suffered to bring us to the truth 2k years ago, He came back to restore it. Christ came again and brought us the hidden manna, the Passover bread and wine celebrated yearly (1.14 @ twighlight).
Luke 22: 13-20 They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover. When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. 15And he said to them, "I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me." In 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."
Then, when is Jesus prophesied to come a second time? Why does the Church of God World Mission Society believe that the Second Coming Christ is Ahnsahnghong?
Through the parable of the fig tree, Jesus revealed that He would come for the second time in 1948, when Israel-represented as the fig tree-would gain its independence. Ahnsahnghong came in 1948 according to the prophecy of the fig tree, so the Church of God believes in Him as the Second Coming Christ.
Then, does the Bible disclose when Jesus will come?
Signs of the End of the Age
When the disciples asked about the signs of Jesus’ second coming and of the end of the age, Jesus said:
Matt. 24:3-33 『"...At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, And all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on The clouds of the sky, with power and great glory. And he will send his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it is near, right at the door."』
Since it is written, "As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that it is near," we must come to know the timing of the fig tree and we must receive Jesus when He comes a second time.
