Christ Jesus came to this earth 2000 years ago and established the Passover of the New Covenant to save us. Without the Passover of the New Covenant there is no Salvation according to the words of Jesus (Jn.6:53-54; Mt.26:17-28). However this Passover was abolished and lost in history. It is prophesied that the Second Coming Christ will restore the New Covenant Passover.
The Church of God believes in Christ Ahnsahnghong, who brought back the truth of the Passover in South Korea, as the Second Coming Christ. That is because according to the biblical prophecies, God must return as a man and re-establish this holy feast, which was abolished 1,600 years ago. The Passover is the absolute sign to recognize the Savior who comes in this age. And the Bible explains in detail where He will be born.
When Christ comes a second time, do you know how to recognize him?
According to the prophecy of Micah in the Old Testament, Jesus was born in Bethlehem (Micah 5:2) when He came the first time.
Then, does the Bible prophesy about the place where Jesus would come from when he comes a second time?
In the book of Isaiah 46:10-11 says:
“I make known the end from the beginning, from ancient times, what is still to come. I say: My purpose will stand and i will do all that I please. From the East I summon a bird of prey; from a far-off land, a man to fulfill my purpose. What I have said, that will I bring about; what I have planned, that will I do.”
Here, a man to fulfill God’s purpose is God in the flesh. And the man to fulfill God’s purpose is parabled to a bird of prey. Biblically, a bird of prey (an eagle) represents God (Deuteronomy 32:11-12). God’s purpose for us is our salvation. God is prophesied to come to bring us Salvation from the East.
What is the seal of God through which we can recognize the Second Coming Christ?
The book of Revelations shows the same prophecy:
“After this I saw four angels standing at the four corners of the earth, holding back the four winds of the earth to prevent any wind from 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 the sea or the trees until we put a seal on the foreheads of the servants of our God.” (Revelations 7:1-3).
Biblically, the seal of God is salvation, which will protect people from harm after the release of the winds. Here the one who has the seal is an angel from the east. Who does this angel represent?
It is the second coming Christ who will give us salvation in the last days:
“So Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.” (Hebrews 9:28).
So the angel from the East who will bring the seal of God is the Second Coming Christ.
What is the seal of God?
Then where is the East from where the second coming Christ will appear?
