Christ Ahnsahnghong Completing The Missions of Elijah–In the previous several posts, I have been explaining about the relationship between historical Elijah and prophetical Elijah. Finally, we come to know the missions Elijah accomplished on Mount Carmel. Through these missions, actually we can know the spiritual prophetical Elijah who would appear in the last day. According to these prophecies of the bible, it is Christ Ahnsahnghong who came to fulfill the missions of Elijah.
Now let us see how Christ Ahnsahnghong accomplished the missions of Elijah one by one. Through this fulfillment, we can be sure that he is the spiritual Elijah who was to come. Prophet Elijah in the history of Israel received missions from God. They were Reparation of Altar, Reconciliation, Destruction of False Prophets, and Bringing Rain to the dried land. Then what are the spiritual meanings? Let us find out one by one.
The First Mission: Repairing the Altar
Christ Ahnsahnghong Completing The Missions of Elijah–In the time of the challenge on Mount Carmel, the very first work of Elijah was repairing the altar. After the desecration of the altar by the 850 false prophets, Elijah rebuilt the broken altar to make a sacrifice to God. To understand the work of spiritual Elijah, we have to understand the hidden meaning behind this story. It is because the second coming Christ would fulfill this work of Elijah spiritually when he comes.
The altar of God is the place where God’s people offer sacrifices to God. However, God sternly commanded God’s people not to bring sacrifices whenever they want to. Rather, God gave them the times for the sacrifices, that is, the festivals of God. That is why God’s people brought offerings to God during the festivals. In this sense, the broken altar represents the abolishment of the festivals of God. During the Dark Age, the very first work of the Satan was abolishing the festivals of God.
Daniel 7:25 He will speak against the Most High and oppress his holy people and try to change the set times (the festivals of God) and the laws. The holy people will be delivered into his hands for a time, times and half a time.
Therefore, all the festivals Christ established as new covenant disappeared during this period. Since God’s people cannot receive salvation without the festivals of God, the Second Coming Christ must come and restore the festivals of God. According to the prophecy, the very first thing Christ Ahnsahnghong did was establishing Zion, the spiritual altar where God’s people can keep the festivals of God. (Isaiah 33:20)
The Second Mission: Reconciliation
Christ Ahnsahnghong Completing The Missions of Elijah–The second mission of Elijah was bringing reconciliation. During the time of Elijah, God’s people’s hearts were turned away from God due to the false prophets and their false teachings. So they were committing sins against God. Because of these sins, there was separation between God and His people. Finally, however, Elijah came and revealed the truth. And he could turn the hearts of people to God. Consequently, he could bring reconciliation between God and His people.
In the same way, during the Dark Age there was a separation between God and His people. All the truth of the new covenant was abolished by the work of Satan. Because of the false prophets and their false teachings, God’s people disobeyed God and followed falsehood. They lost knowledge about God and became ignorant. And they forgot their Creator God and worshiped idols during this period. In this hopeless state, without the appearance of Elijah there is no reconciliation and no salvation.
Restoration of the Passover For Reconciliation
Christ Ahnsahnghong Completing The Missions of Elijah–Therefore, Elijah must come and let people know the true God and bring the reconciliation between God and His people. Then what is the truth that brings reconciliation?
Romans 5:11 Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
Colossians 1:20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.
The bible teaches that Christ gave us reconciliation through his blood. Therefore, the Second Coming Christ must bring the reconciliation in the same manner. Then what is the blood of Christ that gives us the forgiveness of our sins and brings peace back again between them? It is the new covenant of the Passover. (Matthew 26:26, John 6:53) So the Second Coming Christ must restore the Passover.
The Third Mission: Destruction of All the False Prophet
Christ Ahnsahnghong Completing The Missions of Elijah–After restoring the reconciliation between God and His people, Elijah commanded people to seize all the false prophets and kill them all. In that way, he could destroy all the evil thing of the nation and restore the truth. In the same way, when spiritual Elijah appears in the last day, he will restore the truth by killing all the false prophets who had been deceiving the world by spreading the falsehood. Then how would he fulfill this prophecy?
Hosea 6:5 Therefore I cut you in pieces with my prophets, I killed you with the words of my mouth—then my judgments go forth like the sun.
How does God make a judgment to the false prophets? Through the words of God, or the truth. Truth is the light. When there is no truth, people cannot see what is true or what is false. When the light shines, however, people come to know the reality. At that moment, the false things would be laid bare. In that way, the falsehood and those who practice it would be judged. Jesus also said that he would judge the false prophets through the truth or the words of God.
John 12:47 48 There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; the very words I have spoken will condemn them at the last day.
Jesus said that the words of God would judge the people who do not accept him at the last day. It means the words of God which disappeared during the Dark Age must appear again in the last day. Therefore, the second coming Christ coming as Elijah must restore the truth.
The Last Mission: Bringing Rain
Christ Ahnsahnghong Completing The Missions of Elijah–After Elijah completed everything and destroyed all the evil from the land, finally God gave rain to the land. The dried and parched land could quench its thirst and famine through the rain. In the same way, spiritual Elijah must bring the rain in the last day. Then what is the spiritual rain?
Joel 2:23-29 Be glad, people of Zion, rejoice in the Lord your God, for he has given you the autumn rains because he is faithful. He sends you abundant showers, both autumn and spring rains, as before….. “And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions. 29 Even on my servants, both men and women, I will pour out my Spirit in those days.
As we can see in Verse 31, this is a prophecy about things that will happen “before the great and dreadful day of the Lord.” Before this day, God said that he would give rains, that is, the Holy Spirit. God said he would pour out his Spirit to people like rain. 2000 years ago, on the Day of Pentecost Jesus poured out the Holy Spirit of the early rain to his people.
During the Dark Age, however, because of the sins of people, God took the Holy Spirit away. But God prophesied that He would pour out the Holy Spirit one more time in the last day. And this must be completed by the Second Coming Christ who was to come as Elijah. Elijah must come and bring the latter rain of the Holy Spirit to God’s people.
Christ Ahnsahnghong Completing The Missions of Elijah
Christ Ahnsahnghong Completing The Missions of Elijah–All these prophecies came true through the appearance of Christ Ahnsahnghong. He is the spiritual Elijah in the bible. We can prove this through the works of Christ Ahnsahnghong. During his ministry, the very first thing that he did was to restore the festivals of God. On the very first book he wrote in 1955, he revealed the festivals of God forgotten during the Dark Age. And also he gave us the Passover so that we can return to God. Through his ministry of Reconciliation we could receive the forgiveness for our sins. Third, through the truth of the new covenant, he revealed the truth. And through these words of God, he made judgment to the people who do not obey the words of God. Most of all, he opened heaven and is pouring on us the Holy Spirit of the latter rain.
Through all these works of Christ Ahnsahnghong, we can be sure that he is the Elijah who was to come. The bible says that those who do not accept the teachings of Elijah would be completely destroyed in the last day. Now we must accept Christ Ahnsahnghong and obey his command. God said only those who keep the Feast of Tabernacles would receive the Holy Spirit in the last day.
Zechariah 14:16 Then the survivors from all the nations that have attacked Jerusalem will go up year after year to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, and to celebrate the Festival of Tabernacles. 17 If any of the peoples of the earth do not go up to Jerusalem to worship the King, the Lord Almighty, they will have no rain.
Christ Ahnsahnghong Completing The Missions of Elijah–In obedience to the words of God, we must go to Jerusalem and keep the Feast of Tabernacles. Then we can receive the abundant power of the Holy Spirit coming from God Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother New Jerusalem. Let us have faith in the words of God and receive Elijah Ahnsahnghong. He is the last Prophet sent by God to give us the complete salvation.
