God has given us the law of life that can break the power of sin and death. However, people did not realize this truth and did to Him everything they wished, instead of receiving Him with joy.
Jn 1:10He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him…
People persecuted God who came to that which was His own, and crucified Him. Moreover, they insulted and ridiculed Him in such an extreme way. This was how everyone treated God who came in the flesh.
Suppose that you went to a country and people in that country gathered together to speak ill of you, spit on you and hit you with their fists, and moreover they tried to kill you, flogging you and dividing up your clothes by casting lots. You probably would never want to go there again. Our Elohim God suffered those same things when He came to this earth. Let us think about what this planet earth means to God.
Isa 53:1~7 Who has believed our message… He was despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering. Like one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely he took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows, yet we considered him stricken by God, smitten by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth.
The Bible likens Christ to an afflicted lamb being led to the slaughter. So to the Lamb[Christ], the earth is like a place of slaughter. The place of slaughter filled with the smell of blood and murderous rage… Who would go to that place, knowing that the anguish of death is wating for them there? However, God promised to come to this earth again.
Heb 9:27~28Just as man is destined to die once, and after that to face judgment, so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sins, but to bring salvation to those who are wating for him.
Rather than thinking about Their own safety, God the Father Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother wanted to lead Their children to salvation and They came to this earth for the second time to bring salvation to their children. The reason was that unless They came to this earth in the flesh again, Their children could not come to salvation. So The decrees, regulations and laws of the new covenant, which we are keeping now, are not really something small.
Jn 6:53~57 Jesus said to them, ‘I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him. Mt 26:17~19On the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, ‘Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?’ …So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover… While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, ‘Take and eat; this is my body.’ Then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, ‘Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins…
The Passover bread and wine are given to mankind as the symbols of Christ’s flesh and blood, having the promise of eternal life. God has made a precious promise to mankind that whoever eats Jesus’ flesh and drinks His blood will have eternal life, while the person who does not eat His flesh or drink His blood has no life in him. To save us His children, who were sinners from heaven, God didn’t even hesitate to die for us on the cross. Through the sacrifice of God, we have received salvation and eternal life. Our Father Christ Ahnsahnghong & God the Mother willingly gave us Themselves for Their children since it was the only way to save the sinners who were destined to die eternally.
Through the Passover of the New covenant, we can discover God’s infinite love for us and His great sacrifice that He has made to save us for 6,000 years. So The Passover is a feast that every member of the heavenly family must keep.
Recently I read a story entitled. “If I Could Be Born Again in the World!” on the Internet: A middle school teacher gave his students a writing assignment during class. the teacher suggested the subject, “If I could be born again in the world,” and asked them to write an essay.
Among the essays submitted by the students, there was a remarkable story that definitely caught his attention. It was written by a disabled student who attended school on a wheelchair with his mother’s help.
He could wish to be born again healthy to become an athlete or a high jumper. Yet he did not wish for himself. This story, though short, leaves a great and lasting impression on our minds.
Just as the student in the story wanted to repay the love of his mother who had suffered for him, so should we: With a heart full of love for God the Father and God the Mother, we should go to church, keep the Sabbath, celebrate the Passover, and run towards the kingdom of heaven.
