Fragrance from a member of the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG)
Last Tuesday, I went to Zion (World Mission Society Church of God – WMSCOG) and took part in the third day service through which purification of our soul is promised.
God blessed me to realize about the New Covenant more while listening to the preaching. Let me share the grace.
On judgment day, certainly there will be the judged. Why are they to be judged?
The Bible says one of those reasons is -because they don’t know God.
2 Thessalonians 1:7 He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus.
How can we know God? What is the way to know Him? The answer is in the following words.
1 John 2:3-4 We know that we have come to know him if we obey his commands. The man who says, “I know him,” but does not do what he commands is a liar, and the truth is not in him.
If we obey his commands, we come to know God. That is, if we don’t obey his commands, we can never know Him however hard we make effort by any other way. Then, what are God’s commands?
Exodus 31:13 “Say to the Israelites, ‘You must observe my Sabbaths. This will be a sign between me and you for the generations to come, so you may know that I am the LORD, who makes you holy.
Ezekiel 20:20 Keep my Sabbaths holy, that they may be a sign between us. Then you will know that I am the LORD your God.”
If we obey the command to keep the Sabbath, we come to know holy God without fail according to the absolute words of God. Not only Sabbath, the New Covenant Passover is also God’s command, so keeping it guides us to know God.
Jeremiah 31:31 “The time is coming,” declares the LORD, “when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah… No longer will a man teach his neighbor, or a man his brother, saying, ‘Know the LORD,’ because they will all know me, from the least of them to the greatest,” declares the LORD. “For I will forgive their wickedness and will remember their sins no more.”
The New Covenant which allows us to know God is the Passover.
Luke 22:7-20 …Jesus sent Peter and John, saying, “Go and make preparations for us to eat the Passover.”…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.
The bread of the Passover represents Jesus’ flesh and the Passover wine represents His blood.
John 6:53-56 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. Joh Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.
The only person who is in God and who God is in, is the one who keeps the Passover. In other words, whoever keeps the Passover, comes to know God. Although a person says, “I believe in God, I know Him”, if he or she doesn’t obey God’s words nor keep the New Covenant, he or she is the same as the one who doesn’t know God.
So, God said,
Matthew 7:21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and in your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you evildoers!’
Evildoers are those who don’t know God because they do not keep the New Covenant.
Those who have nothing to do with the blessing of the New Covenant: forgiveness of sins and the promise of eternal life will never get these blessings.
We, are the people who know God?
Yes we are! Because we are keeping the Sabbath and the New Covenant!
Who is God? God is Elohim: Christ Ahnsahnghong and Jerusalem Heavenly Mother!
The blessing given to me is amazing and fathomless. This beautiful gift of salvation is the most valuable gift in my life.
I give all thanks and praise to Father Ahnsahnghong who came to this sinful earth from the heaven and restored the New Covenant to allow me to dwell in it, and to Heavenly Mother who also came to be with us and will be with us forever.
