"Have you ever heard of Zion?"

"Have you ever heard of Zion?"

I have met many people who say they have. Some know it as the sanctuary from simulated life in the movie "the Matrix". For others, "Zion" is the title of the catchy and slightly patriotic song Lauryn Hill put out in 1998. Even I can recollect seeing the word "Zion" while riding down the streets of my old neighborhood: "Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church", "African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church", etc...

But, what is Zion in God's point of view?

"But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly, to the church of the firstborn, whose names are written in heaven. You have come to God, the judge of all men, to the spirits of righteous men made perfect." (Hebrews 12:22-23)

"And I looked, and there before me was the Lamb, standing on Mount Zion, and with him 144,000 who had his name and his Father's name written on their foreheads." (Revelation 14:1)

Before coming to the Church of God, I was never shown these verses before. I didn't know that the true children of God receive salvation from Almighty God only in Mount Zion. Once I learned, Zion became more to me than just a word, or a fairy tale, or a name to give ones child. Zion became essential. Zion became my sactuary; it is where God promised to protect me from all disasters.

The location of Zion was top-secret and classified--hidden and restricted. Now, the location has been disclosed. Christ Ahnsahnghong let me know where the true Zion is. I want to share what I learned...

I will boast about Heavenly Mother!

While growing up, I always heard children boast about their moms:

"My mom did this..."
"My mom is better than your mom because..."
"My mom bought me this..."

I must be honest, I never boasted much about my mom, because at that time I did not realize and appreciate everything that she had done for me. Being a spoiled child, I took many things for granted. Looking back at my past, I can see her invisible sacrifice, but still will not boast about it.

I will only boast about Heavenly Mother!

Our Heavenly Mother created the Heavens and the Earth!
Our Heavenly Mother came down to this Earth of sin and death to save us.
Our Heavenly Mother is the source of the Water of Life.
Our Heavenly Mother was hidden, but has now been revealed.
Our Heavenly Mother is better than all other mothers because she gives life!
Our Heavenly Mother bought us back from death through her great sacrifice.

Even Apostle Paul boasted about our Mother who has now appeared to us. Without Heavenly Mother, what can any church boast about? The true Church of God boasts about Heavenly Mother! (Galatians 4:26, Hebrews 12:22-24)

We have the word of the prophets made even more certain.

There is a verse that always touches me:

"And we have the word of the prophets made more certain, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. Above all, you must understand that no prophecy of Scripture came about by the prophet's own interpretation. For prophecy never had its origin in the will of man, but men spoke from God as they were carried along by the Holy Spirit." (2 Peter 1:19)

This verse moves me so much because before learning the Truth about Heavenly Father and Mother, and about the Sabbath, Passover, etc., I thought that the Bible was written by man. The only thing that woke me up was seeing the prophecy and prophecy fulfillment. Through this, Elohim God (God the Father and God the Mother) has illuminated and continue to expose and revive my soul (Revelation 18:1).

When the Hebrew writer received the revelations from Christ, he testified about the spiritual infancy of the saints of the early church:

"...Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered and, once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him and was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek. We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn...You need milk, not solid food!" (Hebrews 5:7-12)

My spirit is overjoyed with the knowledge that we have the word of the prophets made even more certain. The reality of Melchizedek, our Father Christ Ahnsahnghong has come; without father or mother, without genealogy, without beginning of days or end of life, like the Son of God! (Hebrews 7: 1-3). And he blessed us with eternal life through the bread and wine of the New Covenant Passover (Genesis 14:18-20, Matthew 26:17-19, 26-28, John 6:54).

"But the Jerusalem that is above is free and she is our Mother". The reality of this New Covenant is our Mother (Galatians 4:21-31). Now that Perfection has appeared, the imperfect will soon fade away (Revelation 21:1-4).
