In the Book of Malachi, it was prophesied that Elijah would come and made the hearts of children and father turn toward each other. This is taken to mean the return of Elijah who paves the path for the Messiah.
Malachi 4:5~6 “See, I will send you the prophet Elijah before that great and dreadful day of the LORD comes. And he will turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers.”
These verses imply that the Israelite and their God were separated due to their sins. So then what types of crime did they commit against God? And how does Elijah recover the alienated relations between God and people?
According to the Books of Kings, Elijah was against the worship of the god Baal which he regarded it as idol worship and he defended God, Jehovah.
After dying of King Solomon, Israel was divided into the northern Kingdom of Israel and the southern Kingdom of Judah. On the contrary to the laws of Moses, Israel intended to pervert the original value of God’s feasts.
So Israel had been in rebellion against the house of David and only the tribe of Judah remained loyal to the house of David. The kings of Israel made two golden calves and persuaded people, “It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem. Here are your gods, O Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.”(1Kings 12:28)
Even they built shrines on high places and appointed priests from outside the family of the Levites, allowing temples dedicated to the sun-god, Baal.
All the more, they were affected by Princess Jezebel, a priestess of Baal and the daughter of the king of Sidon in Phoenicia. Under Ahab’s kingship, he built a temple for Baal, and his wife Jezebel brought a large delegation of priests and prophets of Baal and Asherah(Ashtaroth; the sun goddess) into Israel.
Also, they instituted a festival on the fifteenth day of the eighth month of man-made, similar to the festival of Judah, and offered sacrifices on the altar. All of their activities looked evil in the sight of God.
It was necessary to be done for Elijah to repair the altar of God which was desecrated by the sun-god, Baal and make it clean and holy again. Because the priests of Israel did violence to God’s law and profane His holy things.
1Kings 18:19 Elijah said, “Now summon the people from all over Israel to meet me on Mount Carmel. And bring the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.”
1Kings 18:30~31 Then Elijah said to all the people, “Come here to me.” They came to him, and he repaired the altar of the LORD, which was in ruins. Elijah took twelve stones, one for each of the tribes descended from Jacob.”
♣ The Prophetical Elijah and Children of Promise
The prophetical Elijah is supposed to restore all things which were distorted and turn them to their original places. As prophesied, in this last age, the prophetical Elijah as the Holy Spirit appeared to repair the altar of God and restored the New Covenant which was established by Jesus. Also He recovered Sabbath and Passover as well as Three Feasts of Three time instead of Sunday service and Christmas as well as Thanksgiving day worship respectively.
It was concluded that He fought against the 850 false prophets; the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal; the sun-god and the four hundred prophets of Asherah; the sun-goddess.
By defeating abominable gods and goddesses, He had our vision of eyes recovered and led us to recognize our Creators and revealed the Jerusalem, our Heavenly Mother and made us children of promise.
Galatians 4:26~28 The Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother. Now you, brothers, like Isaac, are children of promise.
Only those who accept Christ Ahnsahnghong as the prophetical Elijah who restore all things and repair the altar of God that were in ruins could believe in God the Mother as our savior and get the eternal life.
We, children of promise, have to give thanks and glory and honor to Elohim God.
The World Mission Society Church of God(WMSCOG), believing in Elohim God, are practicing the love of Elohim God and showing favor based on the philanthropy. It has got the reputation for volunteer services, harmonious family and neighborly love. I’d like to strongly recommend you to search Cult Research Center.
