One day if your loving family suddenly disappears as the result of a disaster: be it an earthquake, volcano, typhoon, hurricane, tsunami, etc, you’d probably live in despair day by day thinking about your lost loving family member(s): your wife, your husband, your children, your parents.
You may think that this miserable situation has no part with you. However this situation happened last month in Nepal. It has been over 80 years since a big earthquake hit Nepal. So many people lost their loving family member(s) by this horrific disaster. If this miserable situation happened to you, what would you do? Who would you ask for help from this fearful disaster? No one can save us from the attack of a disaster but only God can save us from these earth-moving disasters. Then you maybe have some questions: with what will God save us from these disasters? Why do we live in a world with disasters? All the questions you have the answer can be found in the Bible.
2000 years ago, Jesus prophesied that there would be famines, earthquakes, wars in various places in the last day.
Matthew 24:3 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. “Tell us,” they said, “when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?”
Matthew24:7-8 Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. All these are the beginning of birth pains.
Is there a way to escape these disasters? Yes, there is. The reason is that your life is very precious before God because God loves you so much. That’s why God came down to this earth to rescue His people suffering from disasters and taught us the way to escape from fear of disasters. How can He rescue us from disasters?
Revelation7:1-3 After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent and wind form blowing on the land or on the sea or on any tree. Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God, He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea. Do not harm the land or sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God
Four angels held back the four winds. Then what does this word ‘wind’ mean? Is it actual wind? Or is it the parabolic meaning of wind? Wind means disaster. However God ordered them not to harm the land or sea or the trees until they put a seal on His people. We can understand God saves us from disasters through the seal. Therefore the seal of God is the sign of salvation from horrendous disasters. Then what is the seal of God in the Bible?
John 6:27 Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. On him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.
Who is the Son of Man? As you know, the Son of Man is Jesus. Then the Bible says that God placed the seal on Jesus. How can we have the seal of God to escape from disasters? If we want to have the seal, we should be one body with Jesus.
John 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.
Jesus said that whoever eats His flesh and drinks His blood remains in Him, and He in us. In order to be one body with Jesus, if we only eat His flesh and only drink His blood, we can have the seal. Do you know how we can eat His flesh and drink His blood? Jesus himself taught us the way to eat His flesh and drink His blood.
Luke 22:7-8 Then came the day of Unleavened Bread on which the Passover lamb had to be sacrificed. Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “God and make preparations for us to eat the Passover.
Luke 22;19-20 and he took bread, gave thanks and broke it , and gave it to them, saying, “this is my body given for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you.
Jesus taught us that His flesh is the Passover bread and His blood is the Passover wine. The Passover is the truth for us to be one body with Jesus. So the Passover is the seal of God through which we can escape disasters. Nowadays so many disasters are happening everywhere in the world. In this fear of situations, God gives us the message of hope to escape from disasters through the Passover. The Message of Hope is to keep the Passover of the New Covenant. To give us the message of hope, God came to this earth as man in the flesh, established the Passover of the New Covenant and ordered us to keep it. If we keep the Passover of the New Covenant, we can even escape our fear of disasters. If you want to hear the message of hope in the despair of disasters, please come to the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) and keep the Passover which was brought back to us by Christ Ahnsahnghong. All thanks, praise, glory and honor be to Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother for Their abounding love and sacrifice.
