to love Christ Ahnsahnghong...

The story of Mary Magdalene is one of the most beautiful testimonies in the Bible, and it has been coming to my mind a lot recently. Sometimes, even though I believe the Bible, it is difficult to see how deeply all of the scriptures apply to me; but, the more I study, the more I see that the Bible is my family past, present, and future—the anthology of my Heavenly Family. I thank our Father Christ Ahnsahnghong for coming in the flesh to explain the scriptures to us. Without knowing the Scriptures and understanding them in my heart, it is impossible for me to know and believe in God or know myself. Then, if I do not know God, then can I love God? If I do not love God, then can I love others? (1 John 4:7, 1 John 5:1-4)

Many are familiar with Romans 10:17, where it reads:

“Consequently faith comes from hearing the message, and the message is heard through the Word of Christ.”

Then in order to have faith we MUST hear the Word of Christ.

This is what Jesus Christ said about Mary Magdalene:

Matthew 26:6-13

While Jesus was in Bethany in the home of a man known as Simon the leper, a woman came to him with an alabaster jar of very expensive perfume, which she poured on his head as he was reclining at the table.

When the disciples saw this, they were indignant. “Why this waste?” they asked. “This perfume could have been sold at a high price and the money given to the poor.”

Aware of this, Jesus said to them, “Why are you bothering this woman? She has done a beautiful thing to me. The poor you will always have with you, but you will not always have me. When she poured this perfume on my body, she did it to prepare me for burial. I tell you the truth, wherever this Gospel is preached throughout the world, what she has done will also be told, in memory of her.”

Mary Magdeleine was one who heard the Word of Christ and realized the importance of Christ. Only Christ has the authority to give us forgiveness of sins and eternal life. How amazing it must have been for Mary Magdeleine to finally realize that Jehovah God had come in the flesh, taking her same humanity, as Jesus Christ! Because of her sincere love for Christ, she broke open her alabaster jar of perfume (worth about one years wages) and poured it on Jesus Christ. Through her love for Christ she repented and was forgiven of her sins.

How beautiful was her love for God! I pray to Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother that I too may be able repent and to love God, following Mary Magdalene’s example.

Christ Ahnsahnghong and the Holy Trinity, revisited

As a left off, clearly the Father Jehovah and the Son Jesus are the same, One God, but then what about the Father Jehovah and the Holy Spirit and the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. There should be more proof…right?

  • 1 Corinthians 2:11 says that only the Holy Spirit can know the thoughts of God. But, just as I cannot know the thoughts of any other person, only God Almighty can know God Almighty’s deep and profound thoughts. Therefore, the Holy Spirit is God Almighty—God the Father Jehovah.

Father Jehovah and Son Jesus are clearly One God. Also the Father Jehovah and Son Jesus Christ are clearly One God. Then, by default the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit should be the same, One God. But, not because I said so, the scriptures testify to this fact!

  • Isaiah 9:6-7, As discussed in my previous log, the Bible clearly testifies that Jesus Christ fulfilled this prophecy. Jesus Christ came as the “son” and as the “child” to reign on King David’s throne. In verse 6 it says that in addition to Mighty God and Everlasting Father, he will also be called “Wonderful Counselor”. What did Jesus Christ have to say about himself
  • John 24:45, In this verse Jesus Christ clearly testifies that the Counselor is the Holy Spirit. But the prophecy in Isaiah, reveals that the Counselor is Jesus Christ. What is the end of the matter? The Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit are the same, One God.

Take a look at Zechariah 12:10. According to this verse, Jehovah, himself, prophesies about being pierced “they will look on me, the one they have pierced…” but wasn't it Jesus who was pierced on the cross? Jehovah clearly testifies the Holy Trinity. The Father Jehovah, Son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit Christ Ahnsahnghong were pierced on the cross, because they are the same--One God. How amazing!

The Trinity is just one of the Truths that Christ Ahnsahnghong, the Holy Spirit, has revealed to His children. Even though some churches deny the Trinity, we cannot deny the Word of God or lessen God’s power. Even though God Almighty has come in different forms and with different names for the (3) ages, God is still God.
