” Physical Cyrus and Spiritual Cyrus from the East “
believe in Christ Ahnsahnghong, as God the father and Heavenly mother, as God the Mother. Namely, as Christ in this age. The members of World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) strictly follow the Teachings of Early Church established by Jesus Christ 2,000 years ago.
According to the prophecy in the bible, Christ Ahnsahnghong came to Korea, at the ends of the earth in the east, and restored the new covenant including truth of life, “Passover“. The truth of the new covenant has been spreading rapidly throughout the world. So far this year, 2,200 churches were established everywhere in the world and celebrate the feasts of God including the new covenant, Passover.
There are many prophecies about “Second Coming Christ” in the bible. Among them, Let us study about Second Coming Christ through prophecy of ” The one from the East “
Those who are against our truth insist that “the prophecies about the one coming from the east” are not about Christ AhnSahngHong but about the King Cyrus.” Then, why are they not biblical?
We would like to ask one question to those insisting the one from the east is not the second coming Christ though. Now that there exists Babylon the great in Revelation of New testament (Rev.17:5) and it is prophesied the Babylon is to be fallen (Rev.18:2)what does this Babylon indicate ?
Isn’t Babylon the country that Cyrus destroyed in around BC 538 ? If so, then why Apostle John wrote this through the book of prophecy which to be fulfilled in the last days?
■Isa. 41:1 “ Be silent before me, you islands! Let the nations renew their strength! Let them come forward and speak; let us meet together at the place of judgment. Who has stirred up one from the east, calling in him in righteouness 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. He pursues them and moves on unscathed, by a path his feet have not traveled before 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.”
■Isa.46:11 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.
The prophecy of Old Testament on the one to come from the east was firstly fulfilled byCyrus king of Persia who had led the Israelites from their captivities of Babylon.
■Ezra 1:1-3 In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, in order to fulfill the word of the Lord spoken by Jeremiah, the Lord moved the heart of Cyrus king of Persia to make a proclamation throughout his realm and to put it in writing : “ this is what Cyrus king of Persia says : “ The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in Judah. Anyone of his people among you ? may his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem in Judah and build the temple of the Lord, the God of Israel, the God who is in Jerusalem.
However, this was done for the physical Israelites and its complete fulfillment is to be made when Second coming Christ appears to deliver the spiritual Israelites who are taken prisoners in spiritual Babylon. (Rev.17,18)
■Rev.17:4 The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet, and was glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls. She held a golden cup in her hand, filled with abominable things and the filth of her adulteries.This title was written on her forehead:
MYSTERY BABYLON THE GREAT THE MOTHER OF PROSTITUTES AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
■Rev.18:2 with a mightyvoice he shouted : “Fallen ! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a home for demons and a haunt for every evil spirit, a haunt for every unclean and etestable bird. For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her a dulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”
Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “Come out of her, my people, so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues, for her sins are piled up to heave , and God has remembered her crimes. In the bible, it is prophesied that saints are to go into captivity under spiritual Babylon by being defeated with spiritual Bablylon that was empowered by Satan (Rev.13:7~8,17:1~5) We can understand their spiritual situations as a model through the history when physical Israelites had taken captive s in Babylon. Also, the history that Second Coming Christ will appear from the east to let the spiritual Israelites under the captivities of spiritual Babylon is the one about the king Cyrus from the east that delivered Israelites who were taken prisoners in Babylon.
Like this, God showed the prophesies about Cyrus and second coming Christ as a model and a reality through the book of Isaiah. Therefore, their argument“ The one to come from the east indicates only king Cyrus, not the second coming Christ,” is NOT biblical.
