Jesus Warned Me About Christ Ahnsahnghong!
Matthew 24: Jesus Warned Me About Christ Ahnsahnghong
I read an article recently on thetruewmscog that reminded me of several situations I encountered in my life of faith as a member of the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG). This article in particular concerned the insistence that some people have about the WMSCOG and Christ Ahnsahnghong, stating that the WMSCOG is wrong because of the following verse:
Matthew 24:23-26 - “At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Christ!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it. For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect - if that were possible. See, I have told you ahead of time. So if anyone tells you, ‘There he is, out in the desert,’ do not go out; or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms,’ do not believe it…”
As I read the article, I remembered several instances in which I tried to share the good news that Christ came again, with either an acquaintance or relative, and they brought up this verse. As I told them about Christ Ahnsahnghong, some of them said to me, “Christ Ahnsahnghong is a false Christ, because Jesus said not to believe anyone who says, ‘There he is, out in the desert,’ or, ‘Here he is, in the inner rooms.’” Some have called me a false prophet who preaches about a false Messiah. In this same way, some people insist that the WMSCOG is a false church.
Things like this make me wonder: For all those who say “Jesus warned me about Christ Ahnsahnghong!,” how many of them actually know Jesus? Not just that He was a man and did miracles, but I mean really knew Him according to the laws of God and the prophecies about Him in the Bible? By the end of this blog post, you will understand that, out of those who speak these things against Christ Ahnsahnghong and the WMSCOG, none of them really know Jesus at all.
Christ Will Appear A Second Time
When you look into their logic for this argument against Christ Ahnsahnghong and the WMSCOG, you find that it actually makes no sense. This is one big reason why:
Hebrews 9:28 - so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
The Bible clearly says He will appear a second time. In order to receive salvation, we need to receive Him when He comes again in the last days. If we insist on this argument in Matthew 24, then no one will receive Him when He appears, being full of skepticism. Because even if He is “out in the desert”, or “in the inner room,” they will think that He is a false Christ and reject Him. No one will be able to believe in Him and no one can receive salvation. That is why we need to correctly understand the message that Jesus was trying to convey in Matthew 24.
Jesus Gave This Warning For His Disciples
As mentioned in the article, if we take Jesus’ words out of context, we might fail to receive the true Christ when He comes. When you read Matthew 24, Jesus was speaking about His Second Coming. But He wasn’t speaking to everyone:
Matthew 24:20 - Pray that your flight will not take place in winter or on the Sabbath.
When you read Matthew 24, you can see that Jesus was speaking to His disciples; not to all peoples. In the last days, they are the ones who follow Him and keep God’s Commandments (Rev. 14:12). From this verse, we can see that His disciples keep the Sabbath Day, which is a commandment of God, unlike Sunday worship which is what most churches keep today. Through the command of the Sabbath, we can easily distinguish Christ’s true disciples from the false disciples in the last days.
What makes Christ Ahnsahnghong the true Second Coming Christ?
Just to backtrack; we know that Christ is coming a second time to bring salvation.
Hebrews 9:28 - “…and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.”
The Bible says that the salvation He is bringing is only for those who are waiting for Him. In order to be those who receive Him, what we need to know is, “where is He going to appear?” Without knowing that, how can we wait for Him? And also, if we know where He will appear, we will be able to recognize the true Christ among all the false christs that exists in the world (there are several hundreds out there even today; hence why we need to know where He will appear).
Christ Will Appear In Zion
Growing up, I heard the word Zion often. I didn’t really know what Zion was, but I knew it must be some place important because of the things people said about how amazing Zion is supposed to be and because Zion is a place written about in the Bible. What is this place called Zion that the Bible Speaks about?
Psalm 132:13-14 - For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling: “This is my resting place for ever and ever; here I will sit enthroned, for I have desired it…
What makes Zion such an important place is that in Zion, God sits enthroned! As Christians know, Jesus Christ is God. Then doesn’t that mean He should be found enthroned in Zion?
Acts 4:10-11 - “… It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth… He is ‘the stone you builders rejected, which has become the capstone.’”
1 Peter 2:4-8 - “As you come to him, the living Stone-Rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him-you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. For in scripture it says: ‘See, I lay a stone in Zion, a chosen and precious cornerstone, and the one who trusts in him will never be put to shame.’”
The Bible teaches us that Christ is the Stone. Apostle Peter understood this and was able to explain clearly that Christ is the Stone who is the foundation of Zion. If Christ is the foundation of Zion, that means we can find Him there. In other words, when Second Coming Christ appears, the place where we will be able to find Him is Zion!
Romans 11:26 - … The deliverer will come from Zion…
It wasn’t until I studied the Bible at WMSCOG that I learned anything about Zion. That’s because according to the Bible, the WMSCOG is Zion. And in the WMSCOG, the One who appeared in Zion and redeemed us is the true Second Coming Christ, our Heavenly Father Christ Ahnsahnghong.
