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!
