Forgiveness of Sins and Passover–If all mankind was once angels in heaven, then what was the reason they came down to this earth? Why are their spirits trapped in the body and go through many pains and sufferings which arise from physical existence of human being?
Angelic Diaspora From Heaven
Forgiveness of Sins and Passover–Even though we live in this earth having lost memories of the heaven, 2000 years ago Jesus Christ came down from heaven and let us know the reason for the diaspora or dispersion of mankind from heaven. Let us find out the reason for the scattering of angels from heaven.
Luke 19:10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost.
Matthew 9:13 But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
By putting the two verses above together, we can know that the angels got lost from heaven and live in this earth because of their sins. The diaspora was caused by the sins the angels committed in heaven. Because of their sins, the angels lost their places in heaven and cast down to earth.
Then what kind of sin did they commit in heaven?
Romans 6:23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The weight of a crime can be known through the punishment sentenced out for the crime. In the same way, the weight of the sins by the angels can be fathomed through the sentence given out for them. They were given “a capital punishment” for the sins they committed.
This penalty given to them reveals the load of their sins. They committed sins deserving the death penalty. For that reason, whoever is born on this earth has had to die without any exception. This shows the grievousness of their sins.
Forgiveness of Sins Through the Blood of Christ
Forgiveness of Sins and Passover–In this critical condition of human existence, the bible says that Christ came to us to give us eternal life as gift of God. Then how can we receive the eternal life and free ourselves from the slavery of death? How can we receive the gift of God Jesus promised?
Since death came from the sin (Romans 5:12), to be freed from death we must be forgiven first of our sins. Only when our sins are forgiven, the penalty of the sin can be removed from us. Then what is the way we can receive the forgiveness of sins?
Ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace
The Passover, the Secret of the Forgiveness of Sins
Forgiveness of Sins and Passover–The bible teaches us that we can be forgiven of our sins through the blood of Christ. Then what is the blood of Christ that gives us the forgiveness of sins.
Matthew 26:26 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” 27 Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
On the night of the Passover, Jesus gave this promise to his disciples. Jesus sealed the bread the Passover as his flesh, and the wine as his blood. And he promised that those who participate in the wine of the Passover receives the forgiveness of sins.
Therefore, the blood of Chris that gives us the forgiveness of sins is the Passover. By keeping the Passover, we can participate in the body and blood of Christ. And according to the words of promise of God, we can receive the forgiveness of our sins.
Forgivenss of Sins and Passover
Forgiveness of Sins and Passover–Therefore, we can presume that God prepared the Passover as gift for the sinners.
Luke 22:14 14 When the hour came, Jesus and his apostles reclined at the table. 15 And he said to them, “I have eagerly desired to eat this Passover with you before I suffer. … 19 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.” 20 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.
For who did Jesus prepare this Passover for? Is it only for the disciples of the time? Who are you in this context? “You” means all the mankind who need to receive the forgiveness of their sins. For the sinners who are living the life of pain and agony of death, Christ poured out his blood of the Passover as gift of God to give them eternal life.
Therefore, in this context “you” means every man living on this earth. For the whole mankind Jesus granted this Passover.
Christ Ahnsahnghong Restoring the Passover
Forgiveness of Sins and Passover–Even though Jesus gave the promise of forgiveness of sins and eternal life through the Passover, how come there is no one who keeps the Passover? Are we not sinners? Are we better than the disciples of Jesus who kept the Passover?
We are same. And our sins are no less than theirs. We are all sinners.
Romans 3:9 What shall we conclude then? Do we have any advantage? Not at all! For we have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under the power of sin. 10 As it is written: “There is no one righteous, not even one; 11 there is no one who understands; there is no one who seeks God.
Then why is there anybody who keeps the Passover as if they were righteous? We all need the forgiveness for our sins, aren’t we? The reason is because the Passover got lost by the work of Satan.
The disciples of Jesus kept the Passover until the time of Emperor Constantine. However, in 325 AD in the Council of Nicaea the Passover was abolished. And during the Dark Age, the Passover got completely lost among people. Even though there were movements for religious reformation during the 15th and 16th centuries, nobody could restore the truth of life, the Passover.
For this reason, God promised through the bible that Christ would come back again for the second time for our salvation. (Hebrews 9:28) To fulfill the prophecies of the bible, Christ Ahnsahnghong appeared again for the second time. He restored the truth of life, the Passover to give us forgiveness of sins and eternal life.
Forgiveness of Sins and Passover–Now God grants salvation through his blood of covenant in the Passover. This is the last secret for the forgiveness of sins God promised to the children. People on this earth are once angels from heaven. They were sent to this earth because of their sins. In this sense, we can say that this earth is spiritually a prison. We live in many pains and come to die due to the penalty we receive from heaven.
To these sinners who are destined to die, Christ Ahnsahnghong came and opened the way to the forgiveness of sins and eternal life again through the New Covenant of the Passover. Now come to Zion, World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG). And keep the Passover and receive the gift of God of eternal life.
