Christ Ahnsahnghong Restored the Forgiveness of Sins

Have you heard the saying that we are born into sin? (I doubt you haven't since everyone has told us that when we go to church). The reasoning behind it is that because Adam sinned, the sin automatically carries over to everyone in the world. However, did you know that's not what the Bible says? Look at this verse I saw when studying at the Church of God World Mission Society:

Rom. 6:23 "For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord."

I never realized before that since the wages (payment) for sin is death, why do even young children die? What sin can a newborn baby commit, but it still can die. Women have miscarriages all the time - that baby wasn't even born yet! What kind of sin can it be "born into" if it wasn't born? Studying the Bible more, I now realize that just as our soul (or spirit, same thing) was in heaven before, we must have committed the sin while still in heaven. That's why Jesus came to call sinners (Matt. 9:13). Living in this world, which is a spiritual city of refuge or jail, I didn't know how to return to my spiritual home, the Kingdom of Heaven. I saw that only through the Passover I can have the forgiveness of my sins. Thanks to Father Christ Ahnsahnghong, I am able to keep the Passover, being that He restored it after it being abolished for so long. I thank God, Christ Ahnsahnghong, forever and resolve to not sin again.

Teaching of Church of God, World Mission Society

One of the MANY things I love about the Church of God, World Mission Society is the teachings that have been right there in the Bible all this time. Actually, before coming to this church, I never considered too much about my spirit. Even going to other churches before, the focus was always on how to live prosperously in this life so that when we die, we can stand before God and only HOPE that we can go to heaven. Before coming to this church, going to heaven was like a 50/50 chance.

However, now attending the COG, World Mission Society, I know about my spirit and where I'm going after this world. Actually, my life didn't begin on this earth. Did you know that before we came to this earth, our spirit was in the Kingdom of Heaven? I never saw this verse before:

Eccl. 12:7 "...and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it."

How can I return to a place I've never been to? Since God is in heaven, my spirit will return to God (in heaven). Can you imagine? There are so many verses that show this, actually. Wouldn't you want to know why we suffer and feel pain as we do on this earth? Wouldn't you want to know why you were born?

Christ Ahnsahnghong: The Father Figure

OMG! Ok, so like you know how these days we call Christ Ahnsahnghong Our Father, and not so much our Lord? Well, I never knew that God intended to create this world to teach us about the spiritual world. Check out this verse I heard in the service:

Rom. 1:19 "since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. 20 For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. "

It's like God is invisible, right, but we can actually see all about God through the creations.

So why do we call God, "Our Father" again?

The House of Christ Ahnsahnghong and Mother Jerusalem, Who is God

Wow! The services get more and more exciting! This week, while attending the service at the Church of God World Mission Society, I actually learned the purpose of a house? (Yes, the purpose of a house.) I know it sounds simple, but check it out: Isn't a house for the family to dwell there? Of course! But did you know that in heaven, there's a house of God:

John 14:2 "In my Father's house are many rooms..."

(No, I'm not talking about a church on this earth...)

On this earth, we know there's a house, but the Bible says it's like a copy of the reality in heaven. (Heb. 8:5)

Kinda like this: a model house.

Then, in a house in this world there's a father, mother, & children. Since in heaven there's the reality, what about God, Our Father's house? Who's the Heavenly Father, Children and Mother?

FATHER Ahnsahnghong & MOTHER Jerusalem: Get It!

Something that I learned recently that I did not take into consideration: we call God Our Father. Why? Because the Bible says that God is Our Father. (Matt. 6:9) But a Father implies that who is around? A Mother! Why don't we just call God "Our God"?

When you go to a restaurant and use their restroom, you'll see a door sign for the men's room and the ladies' room. Why doesn't the sign just read "human beings"? It's because humans have two genders: male and female.

Then again I ask, why don't we call God just "God"? Why did God specifically teach us that God is Our Father and God is the only One to be called Father in Heaven? It's because if we have a Father God, then we also have a Mother God. (Gal. 4:26) Duh! Who knew?
