Prayer is the way to call on God’s power. It is the act of asking God for blessings and help whenever we are in need. Everyone is a sinner who is imperfect. Therefore, human beings are very limited in ability and even deficient in many areas. This is why we need look to God and call on Him through prayer so that He may help us in our inadequacies.
Prayer Creates Miracles
When a man brought his possessed son to Jesus’ disciples, they were unable to drive out the evil spirit. But Jesus drove out the evil spirit when they brought him the son. So the disciples wanted to know why they couldn’t drive out the evil spirit but Jesus could. Jesus’ answer was prayer.
Mark 9:28-29 “After Jesus had gone indoors, his disciples asked him privately, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?” He replied, “This kind can come out only by prayer.” ”
What stopped the disciples from witnessing a miracle? It was their lack of prayer. Jesus gives us the answer to His power in creating many miracles. Through His constant prayers, He was able to perform countless miracles.
A miracle can be defined as “an extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause.”
If we desire to experience the supernatural, we must call upon the supernatural forces. Prayer is the act of calling upon the supernatural power of God. Therefore, prayer is the very tool that allows us to witness the impossible.
Every Great Work is Accomplished Through Prayer
When we look at all the great heroes of the Bible, we can say that they all had one thing in common: they sought God’s help through prayer. Jonah prayed and received God’s strength and power to lead 120,000 Ninevites to repentance. Daniel prayed to God 3 times a day toward Jerusalem. As a result, God protected him in the lion’s den. Elijah experienced the miracle of receiving the fire on the altar after prayer. All the forefathers of faith accomplished great works because of prayer.
Even Jesus, our model of faith, set an example by starting every day with prayer from early in the morning. This shows us that Jesus began every work with prayer. Moreover, Jesus told Peter to watch and pray that he would not fall into temptation. Then why does prayer have the power to drive away temptations from Satan? God is the only one that can overcome Satan. When we receive His power through prayer, consequently we too can overcome the evil one.
So whether it’s leading people to repentance, being saved from a disaster, or overcoming Satan, everything will be accomplished through prayer. Then if we want to succeed in whatever work we pursue, we should pray to God. It is because prayer is always present when a great work is performed.
We Must Pray Continually
Then how should we pray? How often should we pray? God teaches us to pray continually. In other words, all the time!
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
Paul regarded prayer as a rope to communicate with God. Then if we can communicate with the living God through prayer, would we not want to pray all the time? Like Jesus, we should do everything with prayer.
Failing to Pray is a Sin
If we fail to pray to God, the Bible regards it as a sin.
1 Samuel 12:23 “As for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD by failing to pray for you.”
There are many sins in the Bible and failure to pray is one of them. Then why does God consider our negligence of prayer as a sin? Would we be able to receive any spiritual blessings or successes without God’s help? Never! To let us know the importance of prayer and to bless us continually, God instructs us that a life of faith without prayer is a life of sin.
God Answers All Our Prayers
God not only hears but also answers all our prayers. When we pray with faith, God will give us everything we ask.
Matthew 7:7-11 “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will give him a snake? If you, then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good gifts to those who ask him!”
But we must believe with conviction and not pray half-heartedly or with doubt.
Matthew 21:22 “If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer.”
God does not answer prayers that test Him, are with a sinful mind, or have the wrong motives. When it is for righteousness in God and we ask with faith, God will absolutely answer us. Therefore, we should always ask in obedience to God’s will.
Our awesome God, Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother, want to hear from us, Their children, all the time. Let’s always think of God and call on Them by using the tool of prayer.Category Beliefs>Beliefs>God the Mother Heavenly Mother is the Key to Our Salvation
When we read the Bible carefully, we can understand that we have both our Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother in the Kingdom of Heaven and we are Their spiritual children. From creation, we can realize the providence of God in creating mothers. Everything that receives life on earth comes from a mother. In the same way, only through our Heavenly Mother will we receive life for our souls and live forever.
Although many do not believe in our Mother testified in the Bible, all mankind must know and accept the existence of Heavenly Mother to receive eternal life.
Heavenly Mother Revealed through Biblical Characters
The truth of Heavenly Mother is the most important teaching in the Bible. In order to reveal the truth about Mother to us, God introduced characters in the bible.
The Will of God in Creating Eve, Adam’s Wife
God’s intent in creating Adam was to reveal our Heavenly Father and Eve was created to reveal our Heavenly Mother.
Ro 5:14 … Adam, who is a pattern of the one to come.
The book of Romans was written after Jesus had already ascended. Therefore, the “one to come” mentioned in the above verse indicates Second Coming Jesus, our Heavenly Father. Then what does God want us to understand about Eve, Adam’s wife?
Ge 3:20 Adam[a] named his wife Eve,[b] because she would become the mother of all the living.
Eve was called “the mother of all the living.” Therefore, we can understand Eve represents our Heavenly Mother.
Adam and Eve represent our Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother.
The Will of God in Creating Sarah, Abraham’s Wife
God awakens us to the truth of God the Father and God the Mother through the history of Abraham and Sarah.
Ge 17:15-16 God also said to Abraham, “As for Sarai your wife, you are no longer to call her Sarai; her name will be Sarah. I will bless her and will surely give you a son by her. I will bless her so that she will be the mother of nations; kings of peoples will come from her.”
Sarah is called “the mother of all nations.” We can see Sarah in the Bible represents our Heavenly Mother, who is the Mother of us all. Then whom does Abraham represent according to God’s words?
Lk 16:23-26 In Hades, where he was in torment, he looked up and saw Abraham far away, with Lazarus by his side. So he called to him, ‘Father Abraham, have pity on me and send Lazarus to dip the tip of his finger in water and cool my tongue, because I am in agony in this fire.’
Only God in Heaven can be called Father. Thus, we can understand that Abraham represents our Father. God interlinked Adam with Eve and Abraham with Sarah so we could understand the existence of our Father and Mother.
Our Heavenly Mother
There are many prophecies in the bible that display the truth of God the Mother. We must diligently study the prophecies so we can gain a deeper understanding of Her.
Gal 4:26 But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our mother.
This mother is not referring to our physical mothers, but the Mother of our spirits in Heaven. Here, we can understand the Jerusalem that is above in Heaven represents our Heavenly Mother.
Rev 21:9-10 … “Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb.” And he carried me away in the Spirit to a mountain great and high, and showed me the Holy City, Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God.
This Bride is the Wife of Christ, our Heavenly Father. The Bible reads that the Bride represents Jerusalem coming down from Heaven. Therefore, the Bible is testifying that the wife of our Heavenly Father is represented as the Jerusalem coming down out of Heaven. When we connect the above verses, we can understand that the Jerusalem coming down out of Heaven in our Heavenly Mother.
We can now understand that God planted the truth of our spiritual Mother all throughout the Bible so all mankind would be able to find Her.
God the Mother Existed since Creation
Many people have a difficult time believing in Mother because they have never heard of Mother before and have only grown up learning about God our Father. However, since the first page of the Bible, Mother has always existed. We can see this in the following verse.
Ge 1:26-27 Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness…“ So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.
God, who created mankind, is expressed here as “us” and “our” and created mankind in the image of God. When we look at mankind, we see two images of God: male and female. If God created males and females then God is not just male, but also female.
People acknowledge the male image of God as Father, then what about the female image of God? She is God the Mother. We must certainly believe in the male and female image of God because it is testified in the Bible.
Come to the Spirit and the Bride
The role of Heavenly Mother is to give life to all mankind in this last age.
Rev 22:17 The Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, “Come!” Let the one who is thirsty come; and let the one who wishes take the free gift of the water of life.
We know the water of life is not referring to physical water, but eternal life. Only God can give eternal life, therefore, the Spirit and the Bride must be God. The Spirit represents our Heavenly Father according to the trinity and the Bride represents our Heavenly Mother. In this last age, we have to come to know and accept both Father and Mother to receive salvation.
Throughout the Bible, we can see it is only in Zion where all of God’s children will be saved and enter heaven. We can only find true God in Zion. God has established Zion, the Church of God, for all mankind so they can receive the Spirit and the Bride.
Only the Wise will Accept the Spirit and the Bride
Many people think God the Mother does not exist, but this is contrary to God’s teachings.
Mt 13:24-27 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”
Jesus said those who correctly understand the words of God and put them into practice are considered the wise. Then if we desire to be the wise in God’s eyes, we will accept all of God’s teachings including the prophecies of Mother.
In this last age, God the Mother must exist for our salvation. We must realize the love and sacrifice of our Heavenly Mother who has spared nothing for Her children. It is only in Zion where Father and Mother dwell and where people can receive eternal life.Category Beliefs>Beliefs>God the Mother God the Mother, is She really in the bible?
Is God the Mother really in the bible?
This is the question that is being asked all over the world as people are hearing the good news about the Mother of our spirit. You may have also wondered about this. Well, the answer is YES! According to the perfect words of God in the bible, there’s the amazing evidence that God’s children not only have God the Father, but also God the Mother.
When you study the bible you can find the beautiful story of the Heavenly Mother’s love for her children. In order for us to clearly understand the invisible, heavenly things, God teaches us to look at the things He created on this earth. We can learn that what we see on earth, can actually teach us about what’s in heaven!
Creation itself testifies about God the Mother
Romans 1:20 “For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities – his eternal power and divine nature – has been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.”
The bible teaches that God’s invisible qualities can be clearly seen, when we take a look at creation. One thing that is invisible about God is His image, what was created in the image of God? Humans!
Genesis 1:26 “Then God said let Us make mankind in Our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
Here God spoke in plural saying “let us make mankind in our image”. Why would God say let “us” instead of let “me”? When we see what was created in the image of God it all makes sense.
Genesis 1:27 “So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.”
The Male and the Female Image of God
What was created in the image of the creator, God? Not only male, but also females were created in the image of God. This is why God said “let us”. Everyone knows that the male image of God in Heaven has the title of Father, even Jesus taught this to us.
Matthew 6:9 “This, then, is how you should pray: “our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”
We call the male image of God, God the Father, so what about the female image of God? We should most definitely call her God the Mother. Does the bible ever say that God’s children, the saints, have their Mother? Absolutely!
Galatians 4:26 “But the Jerusalem that is above is free, and she is our Mother.”
As Jesus taught that we have “our Father” in heaven, Apostle Paul taught that we have “our Mother” in heaven. As there is the complete family system on earth, there is the complete family system in heaven.
The Bible makes it clear to us that there does exist the beautiful heavenly family! If we have God the Mother and God the Father what does that make us? Children.
We call God Father and Mother because we are Gods Children
2 Corinthians 6:18 “I will be a Father to you, and you will be my sons and daughters, says the Lord almighty”
So far we’ve seen many verses showing us the existence of the complete Heavenly family, Father, Mother and children. We, at the Church of God, are proud to share with everyone the amazing fact about our Heavenly Mother in the bible. As of now, many people have only heard of God the Father, but being filled with amazement, many souls are coming to acknowledge the Spirit, our Heavenly Father, AND the Bride, our Heavenly Mother.
Revelation 22:17 “The Spirit and the Bide say, “Come!” And let the one who hears say, ‘Come!’Whoever is thirsty, let them come, and whoever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life.”
The source of the water of life, God the Father and God the Mother only in the Church of God!
On this Earth, the ones giving life to the children are the mother and father. We can see the beautiful reality in the kingdom of heaven. The book of Revelation teaches that our spiritual parents will appear in the last days to give life to our souls! We invite anyone who wants to understand more about our heavenly Mother to come to the Church of God. Please join us in studying the many prophecies pertaining to Her. Everyone that thirsts for the water of life given only by the Spirit and the Bride, may truly receive it!Category Beliefs>Beliefs>Christ Ahnsahnghong Ahnsahnghong, the new name of Christ!
Christians throughout the world call upon the name of Jesus as their Savior, but the World Mission Society Church of God calls upon the name of Ahnsanghong. Why is it that a Christian church would use a name other than Jesus as the name of the Savior? It’s because the bible teaches that Jesus would come back with a new name in order to give us salvation. That name is Ahnsahnghong.
Jesus’ Second Coming
Is it biblical to believe that the name Ahnsahnghong will give us salvation? According to the bible, Christ who came 2,000 years ago is prophesied to come a second time.
“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
God has given us the gracious promise that he will come back for the sake of God’s people. When He returns, He will bring us salvation. To receive Christ and salvation at His second coming, it’s important for us to understand God’s plan of salvation.
It’s all about God’s timing!
Ecclesiastes 3:1 “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:”
We have absolutely no control over time or season, only God can control these things; that’s why it’s called God’s providence. What we can see, though, is that there is a specific time for everything and for all activities. If there’s an activity, there’s a desired outcome. For example, people go to college to get a degree so that they may have a career. Our life of faith, too, has a goal we are trying to achieve. We all want salvation! (1 Peter 1:8) Otherwise, what’s the point in going to church, studying the bible, and believing in God?
Since God is the only one that can give us salvation, then we must look into the providence of God and see the way He established it. Under God’s providence, the plan of salvation was divided into 3 different ages. God gave a different name of the Savior in each respective age. Teaching us about time limitation.
Matthew 28:19-20 “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
Baptism in Three Names
Baptism is the first step to become a child of God. This is a common understanding among churches. However, Jesus revealed to us something very special in his plan of salvation. He said we must be baptized in the NAME of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
“Father” and “Son” are titles and not names, that means they must have a name. The name of the Father is Jehovah. What about the name of the Son? Jesus. Easy! However, what about the Holy Spirit? Since Jesus said we must be baptized in 3 names, then we can’t dismiss that the Holy Spirit must have a name. Otherwise we would have to believe that Jesus would give us an impossible task, leaving us no way to be baptized in three names. For instance, baptism is conducted with water, if water didn’t exist then we couldn’t be baptized with it. God wants us to be saved, so He wouldn’t give us a commandment that we cannot follow through with.
Ahnsahnghong, the Name of the Holy Spirit
If we’ve never heard that the Holy Spirit has a name, then this would sound like a new teaching. However, though the name will be new, this teaching is not. Jesus revealed that He will come back with a new name and the title of the Holy Spirit through the revelation that He gave the apostle John.
Revelation 3:11-13 “I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”
Jesus said He would come again. When He comes, what will He have? A new name! At Jesus’ second coming He will not have the same name, nor will He come with the name Jehovah. Ahnsahnghong is Jesus who has come a second time with a new name. He has come with the mission of the Holy Spirit to remind and teach us of everything.
Why Christ Must Come as the Holy Spirit
John 14:26 “But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”
Christ gave us all of the teachings Christians should follow in order to have the gracious promise of the Kingdom of Heaven. However, after His ascension and the death of the apostles, according to the parable of the weeds, the truth of life was lost. Once the early church came to Rome, it was corrupted and many pagan teachings were brought into Christianity. This is why Jesus told us that the Holy Spirit would come and remind us of everything that He already taught us. We don’t have to be reminded of something unless it had been forgotten.
God’s people have been wandering around in darkness, not knowing the way of salvation. Christ Ahnsahnghong has come with the mission of the Holy Spirit in this last age and has restored all of the teachings that were established at his first coming. He revealed to us the biblical Sabbath, Passover the feast of life, and the most beautiful truth of them all, the existence of our Heavenly Mother.
We thank Father Ahnsahnghong for coming in these last days and opening the way of salvation once again; allowing us the opportunity to be baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
