Thanks to Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother

Saying "thank you" is a very common phrase that we probably use and hear everyday. It's just two simple words that can express our gratitude towards someone for something they did. I say it all the time when someone holds the door for me, or when the salt that is on the dinner table is out of reach and is handed to me, or when a friend gives me a ride somewhere. There are many different situations when we say "thank you" not even really realizing it, somehow it becomes second nature and the words come out of our mouth without even really feeling the gratitude we are trying to express. But when someone does something for us in a moment that is critical for our needs and well being, when they go above and beyond there own limits even forgetting themselves and sacrafice something for us, the words "thank you" take on a whole different meaning. In our lives, the people who do this the most for us usually is our parents. Even though we do not realize it when we are young, are parents from the day we are born give themselves up and sacrafice their body, mind, heart and soul for the life of there children. They work endless hours and have sleepless nights to take care and provide for us. They go through the burden of seeing us sometimes fall only to be there to try to pick us up. When we are wrong the patiently try to teach us what is right. Anyone who is a parent knows the daily sacriafice it takes to raise a child. But how much more should we say "Thank you" to our Heavenly Father and Mother who is the reality of our physical parents sacrafice. Sometimes as a child of God I feel like the little kid who does not realize the sacrafice and love of his parents. As I continue to grow in the truth of God learning about my Heavenly Father and Mother I am starting to understand it and the words "Thank you" seem to be on my lips more and more even though they seem to be inadequate. Words can not express the gratitude I want to show to my Heavenly Father and Mother who sacrafice themselves to give me eternal life and lead me to the kingdom of heavean. However I will continue to say "Thank you Father and Mother for everything you do for me".

Church of God World Mision Society

A litte over a year ago, one day while I was shopping in the mall someone approached me and asked me if I had ever heard about the existence of Heavenly Mother in the bible. At the time, even though I believed in God I had stopped going to church because I realized many of the things I was being taught somewhat contradicted other parts of the bible that was not being shown to me and did not explain all the questions I had about God. I mean there are 66 books of the bible with many teachings, stories, parables, prophecies, etc. Yet when I went to church it seemed that we only touched on a fraction of what was actually in the bible. This made me feel that the pastor was not telling me everything or that he did not know, most likely I thought he did not know, either way I felt it was wrong and God was not in the churches I was etending, so I distanced myself from church and was seeking God on my own and even started to have doubts about God. So when the couple that approached me in the mall asked me about Heavenly Mother, a female image of God, I was very hesitant because of my previous experience with churches, but it was something I never heard or thought about before so I gave them my time to listen. They asked me if they could show me in the bible, I thought this is atually in the bible? Yes, please show me! They took me to the very first page of the bible and showed me Genesis 1:26 were God who speaking in pluaral forms said that male and female were made in the image of God. I had read Genesis before but somehow never realized this point, but it was there and it was true, God said male and female was made from the very image of God. I thought to myself why didn't I realized this, God's meticulous thought of creation was not done without any reason but surely God had a plan from the beginning when he created man and for that matter woman also. It made perfect sense to me, God said male and female were made in the image of God, that is why we call God our father, it is a male image, then if there is a female image of God which accordng to Genesis there should be, it made perfect since we should also have a mother. Afterall, we are children of God, God is our father, then this is a family system, common sense told me, yes we should have a mother. For the first time I felt like God is more simple than we think and I was truely excited. Then I wondered why was this never shown to me and if it is on the first page of the bible, how much more is there that I did not realize before. They contined to show me more evidence through the bible and it was amazing.
Ever since that day I have been going to the Church of God were I have been learning so many about the bible that was never shown to me before. I truely feel that God is in this church because I now understand God and his plan of salvation which I never understood before. All the questions I had about God and the bible have been answered through the bible and I continue to learn more things everyday. I can only hope that more people come to the church of God and recieve all the blessings that God has bestowed on me.

To know God is to know the Passover

Today there are billions of christians in the world, and everyone of them says "I know God". Of course it is natural for us to say this, no one who believes in God says "I don't know God". But if we all say we know God, then why is there so much seperation? Why is there so many different denominations with so many different teachings? I mean we all know that there is only one true God in the bible and that there is only one truth of life that God gives us in the bible, then logically it seems that we should all come to the same conclusion who God is and what he has given us right! God gave us his word (the Bible) through which we can know and understand God, then isn't to know God also to know what he has given us, especially if it is something he gave us for our eternal life! (John 17:3 - Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.) Then if to know God (Jesus) is eternal life we should know how God (Jesus) gives us eternal life. In the same book of John, Jesus said (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.) Jesus clearly says that unless we eat his flesh and drink his blood we have no life, but whoever does has eternal life. Then how can we eat Jesus flesh and blood so that we may recieve eternal life? (Luke 22:13 - 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. And 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.)
Through the Passover we can recieve Jesus flesh and blood which will give us eternal life. Then why do christians now a days not keep the Passover? To be christian means to follow Christ, Jesus set the example for us by even keeping the Passover himself. It is because in 325 A.D. during the times of the dark ages the Passover was abolished in the Roman empire according to prochecy (Daniel 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.) In Daniel it was already foretold that Satan, who's purpose is to lead us astray form God and the salvation God gives us would come and change God's set times and laws. It happened according to God's prophecy in 325 A.D. after Christ came and gave us all the teachings for our 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.) According to the bible Christ should appear a second time, but what for reason? To bring salvation! Why would Christ have to bring us salvation when he comes a second time? Didn't he do that at his first coming when he gave us the Passover and said whoever does this has eternal life!
Yes! Christ should appear a second time, and when he does he should bring us savation by restoring the truth of life by giving us the Passover. (Isaiah 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. On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign LORD will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove the disgrace of his people from all the earth. The LORD has spoken. In that day they will say, "Surely this is our God; we trusted in him, and he saved us. This is the LORD, we trusted in him; let us rejoice and be glad in his salvation.) Isaiah who was given this vision about the last days says that the Lord will prepare a feast of aged wine for all peoples and it will swallow up our death forever, and in that day the people will say "Surely this is our God who gave us salvation". Here clearly the aged wine that swallows up our death forever (it gives us eternal life) is the wine of the Passover which in response the people are thanking God for his salvation. It is because the Passover directly correlates with our salvation (eternal life) which Christ should bring when he appears a second time.
Through the Passover we can know who God is at his second coming. Even at his first coming there were many prophecies to show that the Passover was a sign to recognize who he was. (Jeremiah 31:31 - "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.)
I thank our Father Christ Ahnsahnghong who restored the Passover and all the truths that were lost. He fullfills all the prophecies in the bible and surely he is the LORD who brought us salvation in these last days!

The New Name Ahnsahnghong

According to the bible God is a testing stone that causes men to stumble: (1st Peter 2:6 - For in Scripture it says:"See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame. 7Now to you who believe, this stone is precious. But to those who do not believe, "The stone the builders rejected has become the capstone, 8and, "A stone that causes men to stumble and a rock that makes them fall.) In context we can see that this verse is talking about Jesus Christ. Because Christ came to this earth in the flesh with the name Jesus and not Jehovah, most of the people of that time who only new God to be Jehovah rejected Jesus and did not believe in him even though all the scriptures foretold of his coming (Matthew 5:39 - You diligently study the Scriptures because you think that by them you possess eternal life. These are the Scriptures that testify about me, yet you refuse to come to me to have life.) Even though all the Scriptures of that time which was the Old Tesatement testified about Jesus, not once did they say the name Jesus in them, but through the prophecies of the scriptures we can clearly see that Jesus and Jehovah are one in the same and that the bible already foretold about God coming in this way, and when he did, it was difficult for people to accept. By this we can see how God truely is a testing stone and wants to see who really beliefs in his words. Even though God comes with a different name than before, who will accept it.

In Matthew it says (Matthew 28:18 - Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in[a] the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.") Jesus taught us to baptize in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit and surely he will be with us to the very end of the age. God divided time into three ages: the age of the Father, the age of the Son and the age of the Holy Spirit. And in each age they all have a name. We know that the Father has a name, it is Jehovah, and we also now that the Son has a name, it is Jesus, but what about the Holy Spirit? Does the Holy Spirit have a name? We are living in the Holy Spirit age, then what is the name? (Revalation 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.) According to Revalation which speaks about the last days (or last age) when Christ is to appear again, the bible says that the Spirit will give us a stone with a new name. We know that Jesus Christ is the stone, then it is Christ with a new name! See also (Revalation 3:11 - I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 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. 13He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.) Here Jesus Christ who is coming soon (speaking of his 2nd coming) directly says I will write on him my new name. By the way it also says that when Jesus gives us his new name he will also give us hidden manna, What is manna? (John 6:48 - I am the bread of life. 49Your forefathers ate the manna in the desert, yet they died. 50But here is the bread that comes down from heaven, which a man may eat and not die. 51I 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.") We can see clearly that the manna is Jesus flesh which he gave to the world to have life, eternal life that is. (Luke 22:13 - They left and found things just as Jesus had told them. So they prepared the Passover. 14When 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.19And he took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to them, saying, "This is my body (flesh)given for you; do this in remembrance of me." 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.) Jesus gave us his flesh through the passover and said this is the new covenant which gives us eternal life. (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. 54Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day.) Therefore the manna that the Spirit will give us with the new name is the passover of the new covenant which Jesus gave us to have eternal life.

It should come as no surprise then when Christ is to come again that the same thing could happen as it did 2000 years ago. In fact indeed it will for the bible already said so. I hope many people don't make the same mistake as the people who did not accept God 2000 years ago when he came the first time, to them he was a stumbling block and they failed to recieve him. I hope many people believe in the new name of Ahnsahnghong who came according to God's own word and restored the passover of the new covenant which was abolished during the times of the dark ages and has been hidden (hidden manna) ever since.

Elohim God the Father and God the Mother

Today I had a training class at work that was entitled “knowing the facts” it was focused on how facts are an important tool into determining the outcome of any situation. Though it was work related, the instructor emphasized that it was something that could be applied to all areas and aspects of our lives. As I thought about this more I realized that many people do not know some simple facts about the bible, or God in the bible which they claim to believe in. I started to wonder, how many people even know that the original text of the Bible, which was Hebrew for the Old Testament always referred to God as Elohim. This is an important fact to know and could have a very big impact on the outcome of one’s beliefs in God because the Hebrew word for “Elohim’ is a plural word which directly translates to “Gods” and is the reason for which we see in today’s English translations why God many times speaks in plural forms such as “us” and “our” and “we” (Example: Genisis 1:26 - Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground."). This is also an important fact to know because in the beginning when God (Elohim) created mankind, God said that it would be in the very image of God in the very next verse. (Genisis 1:27 - So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.) Yes! God made male and female in God’s very own image! This would explain why God was refered to as “Elohim” plural God, because according to the Bible male and female (plural images) is the very image and divine nature of God!
I think many people would be shocked to come to this realization, I know I was. It was something totally different from what I had been taught all my life, but I could not disagree with the facts, it was right there in the bible on the very first page. I came to the thought that God who made all things did not create everything we see with our very own eyes without a purpose or plan. There had to be some meaning in why God showed through all the creation, not just human beings but even birds, animals, fish, and plants were created with two images (male and female)! When comparing this question I had about the creation work god did in the beginning to the rest of the bible and not the things that I have been taught all my life I found the answer (Romans 1:19 - since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20For 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.)
For the first time I came to understand that God whom I thought was so difficult and unfathomable to understand was indeed very plain. Through the creation work God wanted to show about God’s very own divine nature, invisible qualities and true image, it explained why everything has a male and female counterpart because God also has a male and female image. All my life I was taught that there only existed a male image (God the Father), but the simple fact that god is called Father implies that somewhere there is a Mother. Who or what has a father but not a mother, I figured this to be common sense but still people have a fixed concept about God and could not see the true image of God (2nd 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.). What is the image of God? God already showed us in the creation, male and female were made in the image of God. Through the creation, and most importantly through God’s word, the facts added up, we have a Heavenly Mother (Galations 4:26 – But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our Mother.)
