After reading this article, I came to think about the first time I was invited for the Passover. At that time, I turned down that offer thinking keeping the Passover was not my priority. I was a high school senior who had to focus on college entry exam which presumably would change my future. After doing a couple of more studies about the Passover though, however, I came to realize I made a huge mistake. The Passover was more than a law prescribed in the Bible. It was spiritual treasure that I had been waiting for my entire life.
Unfortunately, not many Christians have known the truth of the Passover. Even though some pastors, priests and other religious leaders know about the Passover, they do not understand the importance of this day. It is sad that they do not find the great treasure even though it is so close to them. There was a man named William Randolph Hearst (April 29, 1863- Aug 14, 1951) who was an American newspaper publisher who built the nation’s largest newspaper chain. He had a habit of collecting antiques and whenever he found some antiques he liked, he visited all possible places that might possess them. As he was reading a magazine, he found a pottery that he liked. He tried everywhere to find out the owner of this pottery but could not find him. When he was about to give up, there was a news article that mentioned the whereabout of that pottery. According to the article, one American billionaire was the owner and his name was William Randolph Hearst. The pottery he had been looking for was in his warehouse whole time hidden under dust.
Just like Hearst, we might think the truth is very far away from us. For this reason, some people enrolled in the divinity school to deeply study the Bible. Some tried to visit the places mentioned in the Bible to find the way of salvation. Jerusalem city has a great number of visitors every year because many biblical event occurred in that place. However, you do not have to go far to find the treasure of the Bible. Only thing we need to do is to open the Bible. Let’s see what is considered the treasure in the Bible.
Col 2:2-3 My goal is that they may be encouraged in heart and united in love, so that they may have the full riches of complete understanding, in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
The Bible states that in Christ is hidden all the treasures. Then what is this treasure hidden in Christ?
John 10:28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand.
The hidden treasure in Christ is eternal life. Then how did Christ tell us we can receive eternal life? As the article mentions, it is through the Passover.
John 6:53-54 Jesus said to them, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains in me, and I in him.
Matt 26:17-19, 26-28 … He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: My appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house…While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke itand gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying,“Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the[a] covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
Isn’t the way to receive eternal life so clear? Christ told us without eating his flesh and blood, we cannot receive eternal life and the only way to do so is to celebrate the Passover. Then how come we have never heard of Christian Passover established by Christ? It is because in 325 AD, this passover was abolished. Christians who tried to keep this feast were severely persecuted and those who wanted to keep this had to escape to mountains and caves. Over the course of time, the Passover began to be forgotten in people’s memories. However, the Bible prophesies that this truth of the Passover will be restored by second coming 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.
What is salvation for us who are destined to die? It is eternal life. Then what is the way that Christ established to give us eternal life? It is the Passover. Therefore, this Passover can be restored only by Second Coming Christ. Then who is the one who restored the Passover in this last age? He is Christ Ahnsahnghong who established the church of God. He gave us the treasure that is much more valuable than any jewel or precious stone.
Those who slander Christ Ahnsahnghong should consider this prophecy carefully. They might say restoring the Passover is something that anybody could do but who did it besides Christ Ahnsahnghong? If anybody did it, please let me know. I’m very curious about it. Since nobody has claimed to do so, It is correct to say Christ Ahnsahnghong is the only one who restored the Passover. I eagerly urge all of you to study more about the Passover and Christ Ahnsahnghong so that you can understand the treasure hidden in the Bible.
