When people first hear Christ Ahnsahnghong’s name and the fact that He came from Korea, a lot of people seem confused and ask why He should come from that country. I think it is fair for people to feel like that in the beginning because I did not quite understand either before studying the Bible. For this reason, I would like to go over the scriptural references to the coming of Christ, especially the country where he should come from.
First of all, let’s see the prophecy regarding the second coming of Christ.
Heb 9:28 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.
The Bible clearly testifies He will appear a second time. Then does this coming mean he will come in spirit or in the flesh? Since He is always with us spiritually (Matt 28:20), this coming must be the coming in the flesh. Then, how can we know where he should come from? The Bible says that He will appear to bring salvation and therefore we should pay close attention to where the work of salvation will begin in the last days. Let’s go to Revelation, the book concerning the last days and find a prophecy about this.
Rev 7:1-3 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.”
The wind stands for the last disaster that has power to harm the land and the sea. However, this disaster is held back until angel who has the seal of God seals all the servants of God who are the people of God who are to be saved. Then, who is this angel coming with the seal of God? The seal is like a person’s signature which only belongs to himself or herself. As I am the only person who can have my signature, God is the only one who can have the seal of God. Therefore, this angel must be God. We can clearly see that God who is bringing salvation through the seal of God should come from the east.
Isa 46:10-11 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 I will bring about; what I have planned, that I will do.
God said from the east he would summon a bird of prey, which means an eagle in the Bible. An eagle in the Bible represents God (Exo 19:4). Therefore, these verses show that God will come from the east as a man to fulfill his purpose, which is salvation.
Isa 41:2-4 “Who has stirred up one from the east, calling him in righteousness to his service ? He hands nations over to him and subdues kings before him. He turns them to dust with his sword, to windblown chaff with his bow… Who has done this and carried it through, calling forth the generations from the beginning? I, the Lord—with the first of them and with the last—I am he.”
Again in the same book of Isaiah, it is prophesied that God will come as a man from the east. Some might say this might refer to the coming of the first coming Christ. However, considering the fact that both Isaiah and Jesus were in the same country Israel, we cannot say Jesus came from the east. Also the Bible says that this Christ must come from a far off land and farthest corner.
Isa 41:8-9 But you, Israel, my servant, Jacob, whom I have chosen, you descendants of Abraham my friend, I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, ‘You are my servant’; I have chosen you and have not rejected you.
Therefore, Christ should come from a country in the east which is also from the ends of the earth and a farthest corner. Then from where should we find this country? Let’s find out the location of Apostle John when he saw the angel coming from the east.
Rev 1:9 I, John, your brother and companion in the suffering and kingdom and patient endurance that are ours in Jesus, was on the island of Patmos because of the word of God and the testimony of Jesus.
He was in the island of Patmos. Where is it? It is a small island located between Turkey and Greece.
Let’s summarize the main points here.
The country where second coming Christ comes from should meet these two conditions.
- The work of salvation should begin there.
- From the island of Patmos, it should be located in the east, farthest corner and the ends of the earth.
The only country that fulfills these requirements is South Korea. It is a country in the east located in the farthest corner and the ends of the earth and also the work of salvation, the preaching of the Passover began there. For this reason, Christ Ahnsahnghong came from South Korea. His coming to Korea was not a coincidence but a fulfillment of the biblical prophecy.
