Why is the Church of God World Mission Society Persecuted in the Name of Ahnsahnghong?

It is so interesting that the Bible says that we will be persecuted on account of the name of Christ, yet when I look around NO ONE is persecuted on account of Jesus Christ now.

Matt. 5:11 "Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you."

I don't get it! Does this mean there is a contradiction in the Bible, b/c people are praised and exalted b/c of the name of Jesus? Of course not! When I studied more the Bible, I saw that the age that we are living in has everything to do with it. Jesus said this verse 2000 years ago, when He came for the 1st time. At this time, no one in all Israel believed Jesus' name to be the savior except a small few. In fact, the Early Church of 2000 years ago was viewed as a cult.

Acts 24:5 "We have found this man to be a troublemaker, stirring up riots among the Jews all over the world. He is a ringleader of the Nazarene sect 6and even tried to desecrate the temple; so we seized him. 8By examining him yourself you will be able to learn the truth about all these charges we are bringing against him."

In the time of the prophets, the OT, the name Jesus Christ didn't even exist yet. But the people of God were still persecuted b/c of God's name.

Jer. 20:7
"O LORD, you deceived me, and I was deceived; you overpowered me and prevailed. I am ridiculed all day long; everyone mocks me. 8 Whenever I speak, I cry out proclaiming violence and destruction. So the word of the LORD has brought me insult and reproach all day long. 9 But if I say, "I will not mention him or speak any more in his name," his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot. 10 I hear many whispering,"Terror on every side! Report him! Let's report him!" All my friends are waiting for me to slip, saying, "Perhaps he will be deceived; then we will prevail over him and take our revenge on him."

Did you know that Jeremiah was called the prophet of tears? By what name did the prophets speak to receive this kind of persecution? The only name that God used at this time was Jehovah. So then it was by the name of Jehovah that the prophets carried the message of God and were persecuted.
So in the time of the Son Jesus, it was no longer the name of Jehovah that the people of God were persecuted in. It became Jesus Christ, as Jesus is the new name of Jehovah as prophesied.
However, Jesus ssaid the same thing will happen in His 2nd Coming.

Rev. 3:11 "I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my new name."

As Jesus said He is coming soon for His 2nd time, He stated that He will write His new name on the people who overcome. Then clearly, Jesus will have a new name in His 2nd Coming. When do you suppose He will use this new name? If this is prophesied in the Book of Revelation, then clearly, He will use His new name when He comes in the last days. Looking at the prophecy of Rev. 2:17, the one who gives us hidden manna, His name becomes the name of the savior in the time of Holy Spirit (last days) because only the Holy Spirit is prophesied to bring this.

Bear in mind that the hidden manna is the New Covenant Passover that has not been kept since its abolishment in AD 325. Christ Ahnsahnghong is the ONLY one to restore the New Covenant Passover in these days. Before 1948, no one in the whole world was keeping the Passover of the New Covenant. Hence the reason Church of God World Mission Society is the only church who celebrates the New Covenant Passover now. Therefore, Christ Ahnsahnghng IS the name of the savior and the reason Church of God World Mission Society is viewed as a cult.

It makes so much sense now! As the prophets were persecuted in the name of Jehovah in the time of the Father (OT) and the Discples were persecuted in the name of Jesus in the time of the Son (2000 years ago) so now the same church is being persecuted now in the name of Ahnsahnghong. We who are in the Church of God World Mission Society are truly blessed among people because we are on the way to the Kingdom of Heaven.

2Thes. 1:4 "Therefore, among God's churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring. 5 All this is evidence that God's judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering."
