The Teachings of Heavenly Mother Part 8

Teachings of Mother #8
"When we praise our brothers and sisters, the praise returns to us."

Every teaching of Heavenly Mother is so beautiful. When I went to visit Heavenly Mother in Korea, I saw how she treated every one of us. She always encouraged us; She always shared uplifting and positive words with us. Through Her teachings and Her example, we can see how we should act towards our brothers and sisters in the royal priesthood, and towards our neighbors (Hebrews 7:11, 1 Peter 2:9-10). She has taught us to praise and encourage one another.

Jesus said:

"I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you." (John 13:15)

Apostle Paul said:

"Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ." (1 Cor 11:1)

Second Coming Christ, Christ Ahnsahnghong said:

"I follow Mother." (Rev 14:1-5)

Heavenly Mother is the Messiah--the female Christ who is dwelling on this earth with us. I eagerly want to follow Her actions and examples. She teaches me to love and praise my brothers and sisters--with a smile :)

The Teachings of Heavenly Mother Part 7

From the History of the Israelites, we can see how dangerous it is to grumble against God. The ramifications for making such a mistake were grave; God warned us through the history of the Israelites in the desert:

"...Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered over the desert. Now these things occurred as examples to keep us from setting our hearts on evil things as they did. Do not be idolaters,...We should not commit sexual immorality...We should not test the Lord...And do not grumble, as some of them did-and were killed by the detroying angel. These things happened to them as examples and were written down as warnings for us, on whom the fulfillment of the ages has come." (1 Cor 10:1-11)

Teachings of Mother #7
Arrogance comes from the mind full of complaint, when we serve God always with thanksgiving, complaint and arrogance recede from us, and humility dwells in our hearts.

This is what our God the Mother teaches us. Because she loves mankind so much, she came down out of Heaven, and is now dwelling in the flesh, to remind us how we can be protected from all of the disasters and how we can change into the children of God--with gracious and beautiful minds (Revelation 21:2-3). She reminded us not to grumble.

Even though it may seem like a minimal offense, Heavenly Mother Jerusalem earnestly warns us over and over again not to grumble against God, but rather to give thanks to God in every situation (1 Thes 5:16-18). Sometimes, in an unpleasant situation, it is easy to see from a dim perspective, but in reality, every circumstance that God has made is to save us and to bring us into the glorious light of the kingdom of heaven. Like Joshua and Caleb, who saw gracious and victorious results by having and thankful and positive mind, I pray that many peoples around the world can receive the same results through following the Teachings of Heavenly Mother Jerusalem (Gal 4:26, Micah 4:1-2).

The Teachings of Heavenly Mother Part 6

God the Mother tells us to have the mind of a master, and through Her teachings we can understand the characteristics of the sons of God (Gal 4:26-31):

"Though others do not work, we should not complain but do our work faithfully. Having the mind of a master makes us work with pleasure and with ease." (Teachings of Mother #6)

One of the shocking things that I noticed, when I first started attending the Church of God World Mission Society, was that when people worked in the church, they always had a smile on their face. Even though they may have been doing the most laborious job, they worked tirelessly, because they realized something; I truly felt that they realized God's great sacrifice, and that was why they worked so hard. Even though there were projects in the church that they could have easily hired someone to do (cleaning, landscaping, web design, shoveling snow, flower arrangements, construction, etc.) all of the members came together, and were able to accomplish everything through the unity of mind and one spirit: the Spirit of sonship (Psalms 133, Romans 8:14-17).

Every time I am working in Zion, and see my brothers and sisters working so hard for the Gospel, I smile and remember this teaching of Heavenly Mother.

The Teachings of Heavenly Mother Part 5

I was so moved by a recent sermon that I heard about the "Spirit of Sonship and the Spirit of Slavery". In the Bible, God lets us know that there is a spirit that makes us slaves to fear, and a Spirit of sonship.

"For you did not receive a spirit that makes you slave again to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship. And by him we cry, 'Abba, Father.'" (Rom 8:15-16)

"Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, 'Abba, Father.' So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God has made you also an heir." (Gal 4:6-7)

Now, as the sons of God, we have been given the blessing to call God our Father, and the inheritance of the kingdom of heaven. We are not hired workers, but the children of God. In the time of apostle Paul, the mystery of the sons of God was yet to be revealed, as the Scripture says:

"The creation waits in eager expectation for the sons of God to be revealed." (Rom 8:19)

The sons of God could not be revealed until the last days, until the new order, as God prophesied:

"...Put on your garments of splendor, O Jerusalem, the holy city." (Isa 52:1)

"Lift up you eyes and look around; all your sons gather and come to you. 'As surely as I live,' declares the Lord, 'you will wear them all as ornaments; you will put them on , like a bride.'" (Isaiah 49:18)

"I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband...He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." (Rev 21:2-4)

"O afflicted city, lashed by storms and not comforted, I will build you with stones of turquoise, your foundations with sapphires. I will make your battlements of rubies, your gates of sparkling jewels, and all your walls of precious stones. All your sons will be taught by the Lord, and great will be your children's peace." (Isa 54:11-13)

"And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem coming down out of heaven from God. It shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal...The wall was made of jasper, and the city of pure gold, as pure as glass. The foundations of the city walls were decorated with every kind of precious stone..." (Rev 21:19-22)

The sons of God were made to adorn the Heavenly Jerusalem, the Holy City coming down out of heaven--meaning not of this world. She is the bright Morning Star that shines with the Glory of God! She was what the creation was really waiting for (Rev 19:7-9), and now she is being revealed; she is our Mother.

"But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother." (Gal 4:26, cf. Rev 21:10)

Now that Mother has appeared, we are no longer slaves (Gal 4:30-31). Through her Word, we are being made into the sons of God (Micah 4:1-2).

The Teachings of Heavenly Mother Part 4

"Be humble."

Heavenly Mother Jerusalem has taught us that "Being arrogant means wanting to be served". She reminds us to have a humble mind, often empasizing Philippians Chapter 2: "but in humility consider others better than yourselves". Heavenly Mother shows us the perfect example of humilty. Everyday, she makes herself nothing. Even though she is the very nature God, she took the nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. Everyday She humbles herself and carries the cross of our sins, as the reality of the mercy seat in the Most Holy Place. Even though she is found in appearance as a wo(man) she is God. She is the essence of humility.

Jesus Christ testified about Her coming (Rev 1:1-3, Rev 21:9-10, Rev 22:17). Apostle Paul also testified about Her (Gal 4:26). Now, as the scriptures have prophesied, the children of God, the Church of God, established by God, testifies that Heavenly Mother has appeared and is now teaching us (Isa 54).

The Teachings of Heavenly Mother Part 3

Through the knowledge of True Elohim God (Elohim is Hebrew for Gods, Genesis 1:26-27), we can be transformed into the divine nature (2 Pet 1:3-4). God is not only Father; God is also our Mother. In the last days, the water of life and the Word of God is flowing out from our Mother, the New Jerusalem, as the scriptures testified (Rev 22:17, Rev 21:9-10, Gal 4:26, Zach 14:8, Mic 4:1-2). It is our Mother who has appeared to us in this age, and is giving us the words of Eternal Life.

Heavenly Mother teaches us that in the same way that Abraham was blessed when he gave in for his nephew lot, we will be even more blessed when we give in for our brothers and sisters. Elohim God, Christ Ahnsahnghong (the Holy Spirit) and the bride (our Mother, the New Jerusalem), came down out of glorious Heaven and gave up Their glorious throne to save sinners. In this way, They made the ultimate concession for us. (Rev 22:17)

Now being made in Their image, They are teaching mankind how to walk Their path of great sacrifice.

The Teachings of Heavenly Mother Part 2

Mothers Law is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. Through Heavenly Mothers teachings I am learning how to repent for the grievous sins that I committed in the kingdom of heaven. By keeping Mother's teachings, which are the reality of the Two Stone Tablets in the Most Holy Place, She is teaching me her great sacrifice and boundless love to save sinners.

Mother teaches us to:

"Give love"
She gave love to the sinners, the prodigal children that sinned against Her in heaven. Her love is seen through Her voluntary life on this earth in the flesh. She sacrifices Herself as the reality of the Red Heifer (Numbers 19). Now she is teaching us to give love to our neighbors by sharing the good news of salvation with all who have an ear to hear.

"Give glory to God"
She said when we give glory to Her, the glory will return to us. She wants to give glory to the ones that did not give her glory in the kingdom of heaven.

"Have a beautiful mind."
Even though we were not beautiful before, as the law is for the sinners and the rebels, she is making us to be beautiful, in Her divine image. Beautiful people have no hate--only love in their hearts. Heavenly Mother teaches us that only beautiful (minded) people can enter the kingdom of heaven. be continued...

The Teachings of Heavenly Mother Part 1

"You have heard that it was said, 'Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.' But I tell you, Do not resist an evil person. If someone strikes you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also. " (Matt 5:38-39)

When Christ comes, the Law of Christ takes effect. As we see in the verse above, what was written in the Law of Moses became obsolete with the appearance of Jesus. When Jesus came, he brought the new covenant. (Jer 31:31-34, Heb 8:7-13, Luke 22:14-15, 19-20)

As time passed, the new covenant was trampled on, and people started keeping what they wanted to keep, and worshiping Christ with offerings that Christ never requested (Mark 7:6-8). Christ never said to worship Him on Sunday; Christ never said to change Passover to Communion and then keep it every Sunday, or everyday, or whenever we chose. Christ kept Passover at the appointed time as our example.

I am so thankful that Christ came a second time, with the new name, Christ Ahnsahnghong, and restored the Truth of the new covenant--the words that we can live by, (John 6:54) and led us to our Heavenly Mother who was hidden in the scriptures.

Christ Ahnsahnghong said, "I follow Mother." Now we are under the Law of Heavenly Mother Jerusalem (Gal 4:26, Mic 4:1-2).

The Old Order is Obsolete: Heavenly Mother is the New Order

"The Ark of the Covenant"
"The Ark of the Testimony"
"The Ark of the Law"

All of these are phrases are obsolete. Perfection could not be attained through the Levitical Priesthood, as the Holy Spirit testified:

"If perfection could have been attained through the Levitical priesthood (for on the basis of it the law was given to the people), why was there still need for another priest to come-one in the order of Melchizedek, not in the order of Aaron?" (Heb 7:11)

Perfection was not attained through the Old Testament Law, that Law was merely a shadow. It was unclear, unfulfilled, and incomplete.

"The law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming--not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never by the same sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship. If it could, would they not have stopped being offered?
...because it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins." (Heb 10:1-4)

Christ is the reality:

"In those days, when your numbers have increased greatly in the land," declare the Lord, "men will no longer say, The ark of the covenant of the Lord.' It will never enter their minds or be remembered; it will not be missed, nor will another one be made. At that time they will call Jerusalem the Throne of the Lord, and all nations will gather in Jerusalem to honor the name of the Lord." Jer 3:16-17

The reality of the ark of the covenant is our Heavenly Mother.

"But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother!" Gal 4:26

"and I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. he will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." Rev 21: 2-4

Now that our Heavenly Mother, the new Jerusalem has come down out of heaven, the old order is obsolete. Now I want to follow Her Law...

Heavenly Mother Endures

"Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went off to a solitary place, where he prayed. Simon and his companions when to look for him, and when they found him, they exclaimed: 'Everyone is looking for you!' Jesus replied, 'Let us go somewhere else--to the nearby villages--so I can preach there also, That is why I have come."
(Mark 1:35-38)

The whole purpose of Christ coming into this world was to preach: to let sinners know how to receive redemption, the forgiveness of sins. Even from the early morning, Jesus began to preach the gospel.

Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother did the same. Christ Ahnsahnghong preached the new covenant for 37 years (to fulfill the prophesy of King David) and Heavenly Mother continues to preach the gospel so that we may be saved and go to heaven. Their whole purpose for coming down to this earth was to save us. They did nothing wrong, but often people slander and oppose them, even though They are the Saviors that the Bible testified about from the Creation. This was the same thing that happened to Jesus Christ 2000 years ago...

Even through the persecution and suffering, Heavenly Mother still loves us and endures everything for us.

I truly want to resemble The sacrifice and love and Heavenly Mother Jerusalem (Genesis 1:26-27 Gal 4:26).

Numbers 19:1-21

In the Garden,
We walked with Mother,
beside the river,
of the water of life.
Day after day,
rejoicing always,
but we commited sin,
we lost Heaven.

"Come back to Heaven!"
You call Your children earnestly.
Day and night You pray for us,
to come into Your arms.
Oh Mother Jerusalem!
You came down from Heaven,
to save Your lost children.
We repernt of all our sins.

Our Mother, the red heifer,
on the altar's sacrificed.
Even though she is free,
she endures suffering--
so that we many understand,
Her love and sacrifice,
so that we could go back home,
so that we could be free.

The heifer is burned to ash,
giving us the water of life.
Even though she is innocent,
she does not utter a word.
Our Mother does not deserve to feel,
the pain of separation,
on account of our grievious sins,
we repent of all our sins.

When I doubt,
when I boast,
when I envy,
when I hate,
when I'm proud and angry,
when I'm self-seeking,
with tears in your eyes,
You wait patiently,
for me to repent,
and not sin again.

The cross that You bear for me,
on Your knees each night you pray for me.
You pray that I will understand,
Your love and sacrifice.
But, now I want to bear my cross,
and follow You earnestly.
With all my heart and all my soul,
I repent of all my sins.

(Gen 2:15-17, Gen 3-,Rom 5:12, Eze 28:11-17, Psa 102:19-20, Luke 19:10, Matt 9:13, Rom 6:23, Eph 1:7, Matt 26:17-28, John 6:54, )
