Christ Ahnsahnghong restored the Sabbath

I am so excited because tomorrow is the Sabbath Day! Tomorrow, God promised us that we will rest, be blessed, and be made holy (Gen 2:1). But what churches keep the Sabbath nowadays? Why is the Church of God the ONLY church to keep the Sabbath according to the scriptures?

The Sabbath Day was one of my first studies, and since then, I have had the blessing to study many Truths at the Church of God. Through many prophesies (King David, Melchizedek, King Cyrus, Fig Tree Lesson, etc.), I was able to see through the Bible that Christ Ahnsahnghong is Second Coming Christ. But, even through a study like Sabbath Day, that seems so simple, is still amazing to me because it is SO CLEARLY in the Bible that we are to come to worship God on the 7th day-Sabbath-Saturday, but I never saw that before. Even though I had read the 10 commandments all of my life, I never made the connection. (Exodus 20:8-)

Only God Almighty can reveal what was hidden for such a long time. Christ Ahnsahnghong brought back the Biblical Sabbath--no man could have done that. Even through the one who restored the Sabbath, one can see that Christ Ahnsahnghong is True God!

Amos 3:7

7. "Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets."

According to this verse EVERYTHING that God has done will be revealed to his chosen prophets. In fact, it is written that what has been sealed, is made to be opened (Mark 4:22). Daniel was one of the prophets to whom God revealed many Truths. One of my favorite studies at the Church of God was based on prophesies that God revealed to Daniel. Daniel 2, 7, 8, etc. goes though the history of mankind, beginning with the Babylonian empire up through the Last Day. After studying Daniel's prophesy, I knew that God was real--no man could have made a plan so perfectly. How could Daniel have known what would happen in the future...with no discrepancies or human error? It was because his Wisdom came from God. That is why Daniel always gave glory and praises to God.

Daniel 2:19
19. During the night the mystery was revealed to Daniel in a vision. Then Daniel praised the God of heaven 20-23. and said:

"Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;
wisdom and power are his.
He changes time sand seasons;
he sets up kings and deposes them.
He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.
He reveals deep and hidden things;
he knows what lies in darkness,
and light dwells with him
I thank and praise you, O God of my fathers:
You have given me wisdom and power..."

I am always touched when I read this passage, because I too long to rely on God as Daniel did. All Glory and Praise to Heavenly Father Christ Ahnsahnghong and our Mother, The New Jerusalem !

As a matter of fact...

The Bible teaches us the truth, but how do we know. Actually, before coming to the Church of God, I did not believe the Bible. I thought that the Bible was made by man and that there was nothing that man could do that would be infallible. The more that I studied the Truth that Christ Ahnsahnghong has taught us, the more I learned that the Bible is absolute. It is through the prophesies that I, as an unbeliever quasi agnostic-buddhist at that time, was able to see that the Bible could not have been made by mere human hands. The prophets were guided by the hand of God! (2 Peter 2:19-21).

A prime example of this is seen through King Cyrus, an important Historical and Biblical figure.

Isaiah 45:1-3
1. "This is what the Lord says to his anointed,
to Cyrus, whose right hand I take hold of
to subdue nations before him
and to strip kings of their armor,
to open doors before him so that gates will not be shut:
2. I will go before you and will level the mountains;
I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron.
I will give you the treasure of darkness, riches store in secret places,
so that you may know that I am the Lord, the God of Israel,
who summons you by name.

The prophet Isaiah lived around 700BC, but King Cyrus (also know as "Cyrus the Great") lived around 530BC. God already spoke through Isaiah, circa 170 years before, that Cyrus would conquer Babylon and "break down gates of bronze". King Cyrus did not believe in God at first, but after he found out that his reign was prophesied in the scriptures, he freed the Israelites from Babylonian slavery, to let them go and build a temple to God in Jerusalem. (2 Chronicles 36:22-23, Ezra 1:1-4).

There are so many more prophesies like this one. One of my favorites is in Daniel...

The sheep of Christ Ahnsahnghong hear His voice.

John 8:47
“He who belongs to God, hears what God says…

I was very moved recently by an article that I read about sheep. Although overall sheep are meek and have many weaknesses, the have a strength that sets them apart from many animals; God gave sheep a unique sense of hearing. Because of their sensitive ears, they are able to hear the voice of their shepherd—this in turn keeps them alive. Their only means of survival is hearing the voice of their shepherd.

Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother Jerusalem are the Shepherds in this Age of the Holy Spirit. Although I am weak like a sheep—not knowing where to go, or what to do, Father and Mother guide me through their words of Truth. Just like the Shepherd who watches over his flock, Christ Ahnsahnghong and Mother protect me from harm and danger.

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven. (Ecclesiastes 3:16)

Elohim God has made everything, even the Seasons, to show us Their divine nature and invisible love. (Romans 1:20)

"A peach tree longs for its fruits, one hundred and forty-four thousand.
For the scent of the blossoms butter flies flutter in.
By the breeze the petals tremble, fall and it bears fruits
And leaves its good seeds

How lovely is the tree when it buds in March!
How fresh and tender when it gets verdant in May!

Oh, the tree bends it twigs with the fruits in July.
After fruits, in October the tree sheds its leaves.

Heavenly Mother’s been injured thru the time and tide of the world.
Mother’s love become branches; Her sacrifice become blossoms.
Going thru sweets and bitters, grow the blossoms
one hundred and forty-four thousand.

How bright is the tree when in full blossom!
As the bright peach blossoms turn to red, yellow leaves,

The love and sacrifice bear fruits, one hundred
And forty-four thousand then we go back home!"

Christ Ahsahnghong reminded us about the Spiritual World

Everyday Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother show me more and more that the essence of life is not physical but Spiritual. Through my experiences, even at work, I can see how many have been blinded to the Truth (2 Corinthians 4:4).

I was talking to a coworker today about Joel Osteen. She loves him, his "charisma", and his "prosperity message". I was sharing with her how I felt about his teachings, and she advocated for him maintaining that he was teaching people how to be successful, and how to have a good life. She felt that he was not doing anything wrong, and that the things that he has said has motivated her.


Jesus Christ came to give us eternal life, not tell us how to live comfortably in the flesh (John 10:10, John 6:53). What good is it that we have everything in this temporary life, but lose our soul to eternal hell (Mark 8:36)? Jesus Christ even told us,

Jeremiah 16:1-21
John 6:27
"Do not work for the food that spoils,
but for food that endures to eternal life,
which the Son of Man will give you.
On him God the Father has placed his seal of approval."

Jesus wanted to teach us about our spirit--what will last forever.

Why did apostle Peter say that he followed Christ? It was not because he turned 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes into enough to feed 5,000. He did not follow Christ because of a miracle that gave him physical food; physical food is perishible. Why then did Peter continue to follow Christ...

Zechariah 14:8

"On that day living water will flow out from Jerusalem, half to the eastern sea and half to the western sea, in summer and in winter."

In the Church of God, this scripture is being fulfilled--to the glory of Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother!

Giving Glory to Christ Ahnsahnghong and Mother Jerusalem!

There is a song called "Give Thanks to God" that we sing from time-to-time. The song talks about all of the things that our Heavenly Father Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother have done for us--the Children of God. The song reads like this (Psalms 136):

"Our Father made the Heavens and the earth and all things in the universe.

Our Father's saved us from the furnace flames, from the land of the shadow of death.
Our Father formed us from the dust of ground and He gave His breath of life.
Our Father's raised us in Zion, holy Mount, sitting enthroned between the Cherubim.

It goes on to talk about our Mother.

"Our Mother cut the monster Rahab in pieces; She pierced the dragon through.
Our Mother give us birth, cares for us with love that we may live a new life.
Our Mother gives us water of life to whoever wants and is thirsty.
Our Mother carries us the children who have sinned, under Her wings of loving kindness.

Our Spiritual Father and Mother, have done everything. There is nothing that I can boast about in this world--except God (2 Corinthians 10:17-18). I truly hope Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother will be pleased with me, on that day (Matthew 25:14-28).

I give thanks to Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother for continuing to humble and renew my spirit.

This is how...

Isaiah 24:5
"The earth is defiled by its people;
they have disobeyed the law,
violated the statues

In Exodus 12 Jehovah made covenant with the Israelites--that if they kept the Passover the destruction of the plague of the firstborn would pass over them. Those that kept the Passover received the promise of life and also were freed from slavery. Jehovah said that the Israelites must keep the Passover as a lasting covenant (Exodus 12:14).

Then Jehovah promised:

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"

Jesus brought the New Covenant:

Luke 22:20
"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."


But, what churches keep the New Covenant Passover these days? How do people break God's EVERLASTING COVENANT? not keeping the Passover. Without Christ Ahnsahnghong coming to this earth I would not know how much I was breaking my Heavenly Father and Mother's Heart by not doing Their Will. Now the broken promise and Heavenly Family can be restored!

This is why...

This is why God will destroy this earth and its inhabitants:

Isaiah 24:5
"5. The earth is defiled by its people;
they have disobeyed the laws,
violated the statutes
and broken the everlasting covenant.
6. Therefore a curse consumes the earth..."

It is because the people have disobeyed and violated God's laws and broken the everlasting covenant. But what is this covenant, what laws did we disobey? God made us a promise of eternal life (1 John 2:25). How did we break the pact that we had with God?

Christ Ahnsahnhong has taught us...

Would you warn someone?

Would you warn someone if you knew that something bad was going to happen to them, if there were a way to prevent it? If you had the cure to a terminal illness, would you share it with those who were soon to die?

For me, and for many compassionate people, that answer would be "yes". In the same way, God has warned us of the current status of our civilization.

In Isaiah 24, Isaiah prophesies about the last days and what will become of the earth:

Isaiah 24:1-6
1. See, the LORD is going to lay waste the earth and devastate it; he will ruin it face and scatter its inhabitants...3. The earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered. The LORD has spoken this word...6. Therefore a curse consumes the earth; its people must bear their guilt (Hebrews 6:17-18). Therefore earth's inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left.

This situation will happen, as God's purpose will stand (Isaiah 46:10-11). Christ A
hnsahnghong has reminded us of this warning. Many false prophets have taught people that God will never destroy this earth, and have led people to believe that they are well, when in actuality their status on this earth is terminal--The Bible clearly says that the earth will be destroyed. But, for what reason? God is love...why would God destroy his creation...?

Surely we were like grass...

We sing many beautiful "New Songs" (Revelation 14:3) in Zion. One of my favorites is "Blossoms of Life."

"All men are like grass of the fields;
they fade like nameless flowers.
Flowers fall and grass withers. Poor mortal men!
Heavenly Mother's come to us..."

The grass and the flowers, although green and beautiful at one time, will all die. According to the Bible, so is our life on this earth.

1 Peter 1:24
"'All men are like grass,
and all their glory is like the flowers of the field;
the grass withers and the flowers fall,
but the word of the Lord stands forever.'
And this was the word that was preached to you." (ref: Isaiah 40:6-8)

That is why I cannot live for the perishable, but rather the imperishable. Beauty, wealth, the worldly desires/relationships will fade and be broken, but the Word of God will never be broken--it will endure to eternal life. (Micah 4:2).

Blessing on the Sabbath Day

Christ Ahnsahnghong brought us the Sabbath Day. Even though many Christians are going to church today (Sunday), the Bible tells us that it is the 7th day, Saturday that God blesses, and that God has made holy. NO OTHER DAY in the Bible did God give that promise. After Sabbath day, my spirit always feels better. When I think about Jesus Christ he healed on the Sabbath day...

Luke 13:15
10. On a Sabbath Jesus was teaching in one of the synagogues, 11.and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. 12. When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, "Woman, you are set free from your infirmity." 13. Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.

The religious leaders scrutinized Christ for healing on the Sabbath day, but this was His reply:

15. The Lord answered him, "You hypocrites! Doesn't each of you on the Sabbath day untie his ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water? 16. Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kep bound for eighteen years, be set free on THE SABBATH DAY from what bound her?"

17. When he said this, all his opponents were humiliated, but the people were delighted with all the wonderful things he was doing.

I feel so blessed because God created the Sabbath day for me to be healed. Christ healed the blind, lame, mute, and deaf all on the Sabbath day.

I am so thankful that Christ Ahnsahnghong reestablihed the Sabbath day, in this age of the Holy Spirit (and the Bride). Just like 2000 years ago, Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother heal me from my infirmities on the Sabbath day--through the Scriptures.

Isaiah 33:24
24. No one living in Zion will say, "I am ill"; and the sins of those who dwell thee will be forgiven.
