Christ Ahnsahnghong reestablished the New Covenant Passover

Passover is approaching, and I am elated. I am so thankful to Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother that they are allowing me to keep the Passover. Before coming to the Church of God, I never knew that there was a new covenant Passover. When people spoke about the Passover, I understood it to be the Passover that the Israelites kept when they were in Egypt, but God 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.
It will not be like the covenant
I made with their forefathers
when I took them by the hand
to lead them out of Egypt. (Jeremiah 31:31-32)

Jehovah God brought them out of Egypt through the old Covenant Passover.

Jesus Christ came with the NEW COVENANT Passover.

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. (Luke 22:15,19-20)

I can't wait to keep the New Covenant Passover this year and receive eternal life that Christ Ahnsahnghong has promised. (John 6:53-54)

We rejoice in the Name of Christ Ahnsahnghong.

Nowadays, do any Christians persecute other Christians for the name of Jesus? No way.

Jesus said:
"...and I will also write on him my new name. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches." (Revelation 3:11-13)

But for the NEW NAME, Christ Ahnsahnghong, we receive persecution from "Christians". I can rejoice because the Bible already testified this would happen. Christ Ahnshanghong reminded us to rejoice. (John 14:25-27)

"Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you." (Matthew 5:10-12)

Christ Ahnsahnghong reminded us, "it is the same now"

It is the same now.

Just as Jesus Christ was persecuted, so where his followers.

"If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world...If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also. They will treat you thiw way because of MY NAME, for they do not know the One who sent me.

Jesus said he would come with a new name:

"I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. Him 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." (Revelation 3:12)

Will people believe the new name, or will they be like the people that persecuted Jesus and his apostles?

The Holy Spirit told us:

"In fact everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted." (2 Timothy 3:12)

The Holy Spirit also told us:

"At that time the son born in the ordinary way persecuted the son born by the power of the Spirit. It is the same now..." (Galatians 4:29)

We know we are a true believer if we are persecuted.

The True Church was persecuted

I have heard many comments from many people saying that our Church is weird, or is a cult. They say this because it is different from the norm--it goes against what has been commonly accepted as truth.

When we look at Jesus Christ and our forefathers of faith in the apostolic age, they went through the same persecutions and false accusations.

To Jesus they said:

"We are not stoning you for any of these," replied the Jews, "but for blasphemy, because you a mere man, claim to be God." (John 10:33)

They called Jesus blasphemous.

About apostle Paul they said:

"We have found this man to be a troublemaker, stirring up riots among the Jews all over the world. He is a ringleader of the Nazarene sect, and even tried to desecrate the temple; so we seized him..." (Acts 24:5)

They falsely accused apostle Paul and had him thrown in prison.

Both Jesus Christ and Apostle Paul spoke the Truth (Sabbath, Passover, Feasts of God, veil for women, etc.), but they were hated for it; they were mocked, scorned, and persecuted.

What about Second Coming Christ and his followers?

Elohim God created everything!

How is it that the sun rises?
How is it that the sun sets?
How is it that the clouds form?
How is it that they disappear?
How is it that a tree is cursed?
How is it that its twigs get tender?
How is it that the figs fell?
How is it that a nation rises?
How is it that the wind blows?
How is it that peace is restored?
How is it that the
and unfulfilled,
and fulfilled?

God Elohim, the creator of the heavens and the earth have done everything by their will.

Christ Ahnsahnghong makes us family in Zion.

In Zion, a.k.a Church of God, we are able to share many happy times. I have many great memories, especially from the times when we gathered together as a spiritual family. Because we share the same Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother, we are truly family!

One time, I remember we sat around in a circle and sang new songs together and talked about our experiences preaching the gospel. I will never forget that particular day in which I felt this scripture come to life:

Acts 2:44-47
"All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they gave to anyone as he had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."

I am so thankful to be able to see my spiritual family in Zion! (Revelation 14:1-5)

Acknowledge the New Name: Christ Ahnsahnghong

What an awesome Sabbath Day, thanks to Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother!

We got to read one of the most amazing passages in service today. Everytime that I read it, I am more and more moved by how important it is to know the name of God.

Psalms 91

1 He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the LORD, "He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust."

3 Surely he will save you from the fowler's snare
and from the deadly pestilence.

4 He will cover you with his feathers,
and under his wings you will find refuge;
his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.

5 You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,

6 nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.

7 A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.

8 You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.

9 If you make the Most High your dwelling—
even the LORD, who is my refuge-

10 then no harm will befall you,
no disaster will come near your tent.

11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;

12 they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.

13 You will tread upon the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.

14 "Because he loves me," says the LORD, "I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him
and show him my salvation."

Knowing the name of God is seriously important.

Through the sermon today, I was reminded of God's promise that we will be protected from pestilence, plague and disasters (not just any disaster, but one that would cause ten thousand people to fall down at our side) because we acknowledge the new name in this age. (Joel 2:32, Romans 10:13, Revelation 3:12)

Thanks to Heavenly Mother!

Thanks to Heavenly Mother:

You truly are our Mother,
taking care of every little thing.
You give us eternal life, and spare nothing to make sure that we are happy.
You teach us through your teachings,
how we can love one another and serve each other.
You give us a reason to rejoice and sing with joy.
You save us from our sins, as you are the reality of the Passover.
I hope with all my heart and with all my strength that I may
be made in your image, and that I may
serve my brothers and sisters with a humble heart.

Heavenly Mother has given us all of the tools for salvation.
As the living word of God She instructs us everyday.
Reminding us who we are, and who we will be.
I am so thankful that she brought me to Zion!
I want to stay there forever.

Heavenly Mother reminds us who we are.

I am so thankful to Heavenly Father Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother New Jerusalem, for allowing me to write another blog. They came down out Heaven to call the children in these last days. (Revelation 22:17, Revelation 21:9-10, Galatians 4:6).

Father and Mother showed me something amazing this week. Through one of the Missionaries, I learned an important lesson, and was reminded of God's love and sacrifice.

She drew 2 pictures:
When you look at these pictures, you can see that one is a smiley face and one is a frowny face. But the change in the drawing is so slight. The difference is so small--only a slight stroke of the pen can change the smiley face into a frowny face. But even though these drawings are so close, "they are worlds apart", she shared with me. It made me remember that we are heavenly beings that God has chosen, not earthly beings who have no hope for salvation; not because of anything that we did, but because of Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother's mercy. In heaven, as They taught us, there is not more pain, suffering or sorrow. We are going there. Heavenly Mother always reminds us to be joyful always! (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)
