United in Christ Ahnsahnghong

The Church of God World Mission Society in our city has been doing a lot of events to really bring everyone together. I have such a positive time when I go there! I am glad that God has allowed me the time to spend with my spiritual family! I am reminded of this passage.

Psalms 133:1-3
1)“How good and pleasant it is when brothers live to
gether in unity! 2)It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down upon the collar of his robes. 3) It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.”

I was thinking, how can I be spiritually united in Zion with my brothers and sisters? I remembered a study that I had a little while ago about the Passover.

John 6:56
56) Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.

All of us who keep the Passover become one body (Matthew 26:17-28, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13). Without Christ Ahnsahnghong bringing back the way to salvation, through the Passover, I would not have forgiveness of sins, nor would I have eternal life (Hebrews 9:27-28, Isaiah 25:6, John 6:53-54). Because of that, I am so thankful to Christ Ahnsanhghong.

I have had some recent life experiences where I have learned that nothing is possible if I do not rely on God; but when I try my hardest to draw from the true source, I am able to accomplish anything. It is such a blessing to know who the true vine is, in this age. In John 15:5, Jesus Christ said:

“I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.”

I am so touched by this verse because I see how it connects to the Passover. By keeping the Passover, from the word of God, that is the way to remain in Christ. Because I did not have the way to salvation or the way to remain in Christ and Christ in me, Christ Ahnsahnghong came and revealed the treasure that was hidden in the field. Even though the Passover was in plain site—as a field with its wide open spaces (Matthew 13:44)—I was not able to see it.

While I was studying I asked “Why was it that even though the congregation at the Baptist church that I attended before coming here read that verse OVER and OVER again before we took communion every month, but I never saw the word Passover? Why did we never study about the New Testament Passover?” Then they showed me this verse:

Matthew 13:11-13
11) He replied, “The knowledge of the secrets of the king
dom of heaven has been given to you, but not to them. 12) “Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be a taken from him. 13) This is why I speak to them in parables:

“Though seeing, they do not see;
Though hearing, they do not hear or underst

At that moment God allowed me to understand! Though seeing physically, I did not see spiritually. Though hearing (and even reciting) physically, I did not hear spiritually.

Even though the Passover, the way to eternal life (John 6:54) was hidden, Christ Ahnsahnghong came and brought to light that which was in darkness (1 Corinthians 4:5). I am so thankful to Christ Ahnsahnghong for revealing to me the truth about Sunday worship, communion, Christmas, cross reverence, and all of the other pagan and secularized rituals that are associated with Christianity.

I truly want to remain in the vine and become united in mind with Christ Ahnsahnghong.
