So Then... Why Did Christ Ahnsahnghong Die?
As I mentioned earlier, everything Christ Ahnsahnghong did as He carried out His life to restore the lost truth, He did it to fulfill Bible prophecy. Then, without a doubt, we can understand that the reason Christ Ahnsahnghong died was also to fulfill Bible prophecy.
Adam and Eve - Not Just a Story, But Prophecy
We've all grown up hearing the story of Adam and Eve. Though many regard it as just that, a story, in reality, there is a deep mystery concerning God inside of the Garden of Eden and Adam and Eve. The Bible says that God created the first man, Adam, to allow us to understand about Christ, who is, as the Bible says, the last Adam:
1 Corinthians 15:45-47 - "So it is written: 'The first man Adam became a living being'; the last Adam (that is, Christ; NLT), a life-giving spirit. The spiritual did not come first, but the natural , and then the spiritual. The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven."
Romans 5:14 - "... as did Adam, who was a pattern of the one to come (Now Adam is a symbol, a representation of Christ - NLT).
It's very clear through the Bible that God created Adam as a representation of Christ, or in other words; so that through Adam, we can understand Christ. Then the question is, "what did God want to teach us about Christ, through Adam?" The answer is simple: Christ is the life-giving spirit, in the pattern of Adam. In other words, He is coming in the pattern of Adam, as the last Adam, to give us eternal life. So in order to understand how Christ will give us this eternal life, we just need to look at Adam, who represents Christ and we can find the answer.
So how was it that Adam gave life?
The Last Adam and the Last Eve: Heavenly Mother is the Source of Life
When God created Adam, He allowed him to name all of the animals and rule over everything in the Garden of Eden. It appeared as if Adam could do anything, and was in control of everything, without needing anyone else's help. But God said, "it is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a suitable helper for him" (Gen. 2:18). As a result, God created the woman out of Adam, as His suitable helper.
This raises the question: What was it that Adam, the man, needed help with? What was the one and most important thing that he could not do alone? What was the purpose for which God created Eve, the woman, as a suitable helper for Adam?
Genesis 3:20 - "Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living."
God created Eve, because through Her, Adam could give life! Without Eve, it was impossible for Adam to give life. But according to the Bible, Adam is a representation of Christ, and through Him, we can understand how Christ will give life. If Adam, could only give life through Eve, then that means Christ, the last Adam, can only give life through the last Eve. The Bible prophesies in Revelation, that the last Adam will appear, not alone this time, but with the last Eve, to lead mankind to the way of eternal life.
Revelation 19:7 - "Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory, for the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready."
According to the Bible, the Lamb is Christ (John 1:29). Through the parable of the Wedding Banquet given by Jesus 2,000 years ago, He let's us understand that He is also the Bridegroom of the wedding banquet, and we, God's people, are the guests (Matt. 22:1-10; Mark 2:19-20). In Revelation, Christ is again referred to as the Bridegroom and we are referred to those who are invited (in other words, the guests; Rev. 19:7-9). Then, who is the Bride of Christ in the last Days.
Revelation 21:9-10 - "'Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb'... and he showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God."
Galatians 4:26 - "But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother."
In Revelation, it is very clear that the bride of Christ is the Jerusalem from heaven. When we go to the book of Galatians, it becomes even more clear the reason why John said "let us rejoice and be glad" that the bride is ready. It is because She is the last Eve; Jerusalem, our Heavenly Mother.
You're probably thinking to yourself, "wow, this is amazing; Heavenly Mother is truly the source of life!" But you're probably also thinking, "it still doesn't answer my question: Why did Christ Ahnsahnghong die?"
That can also be answered if we look a little deeper into the Garden of Eden. What needed to take place in order for Eve to appear and Adam to be able to give life through her?
Christ Ahnsahnghong Died to Give Us Eternal Life Through the Last Eve
Genesis 2:21-22 - "So the LORD God caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man's ribs and closed up the place with flesh. Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib..."
Before God made Eve out of Adam's rib, first He caused Adam to fall into a deep sleep and then He created the the woman. What does sleep represent in the Bible?
John 11:11-13 - "After he had said this, he went on to tell them, 'Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him up.' His disciples replied, 'Lord, if he sleeps, he will get better.' Jesus had been speaking of his death, but his disciples thought he meant natural sleep."
Just as Adam represents Christ, sleep in the Bible also represents death. In order for Eve, the mother of all the living, to be revealed from Adam, first he had to fall into a deep sleep. Then, in order for Heavenly Mother to be revealed, what needed to happen to Second Coming Christ? Our Father, Second Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong, passed away as the last Adam in order to fulfill Bible prophecy and to reveal to us our Heavenly Mother, who is the last Eve. Before ascending to the Kingdom of Heaven, our Father Christ Ahnsahnghong revealed to us our Heavenly Mother, the New Jerusalem, Who is with now with us on the earth and is giving us eternal life in these last days.
Because He passed away, He truly fulfilled all of the prophecies concerning Second Coming Christ, and gives us true hope in His name and in the truth that He has brought to save mankind. The truth about Mother. There are many other prophecies that prove Christ Ahnsahnghong had to pass away. You can learn them all at the World Mission Society Church of God.
