The Passover of the New Covenant, the way to eternal life
Last time, through the Passover of the new covenant that Christ Jesus established according to the prophecies of the Old Testament(Jer 31:31, Lk 22:20), we could realize that God eagerly wants to give us the blessing of the eternal life(1 Jn 2:25).
John 10:10 the thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
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.
The scene of keeping the Passover-WMSCOG
Matthew 26:17~19 On the first say of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked. ” Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?” 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. So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover.
Matthew 26~28 While they were eating, Jesus took bread, gave thanks and broke it, and gave it to his disciples, saying, ‘Take and eat; this is my body.” then he took the cup, gave thanks and offered it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.
Corinthians 11:23~25 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.”
The Passover Christ Jesus and the apostles kept has so many meanings. The Passover of the New Covenant includes God’s love, salvation, and eternal life for sinners. However, the precious command of God was gradually disappeared by the Roman church.
Abolishment of the Passover, the New Covenant, and restoration of it-WMSCOG
Christ Jesus made a new covenant Passover with His sacrifice on the cross for our salvation. However, After the age of apostolic, the Passover of the new covenant that Christ Jesus had given was abolished by the Nicene Congregation in the Roman church in A.D. 325. Then how do we receive the eternal life without the Passover of the new covenant? So to restore the Passover, Christ Jesus will come to this earth a second time to give salvation to people in the world.
Isaiah 25:6~8 On this mountain the Lord Almighty will prepare a feast of rich food for all peoples, a banquet of aged wine – the best of meats and the finest of wines. On this mountain he will destroy the shroud that enfolds all peoples, the sheet that covers all nations; he will swallow up death forever. The sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces; he will remove the disgrace of his people from all the earth. The Lord has spoken.
Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was sacrificed once to take way the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
Today, what is the thing that we should realize?
We have to recognize that the second coming Christ has already come to this earth and restore the truth of the Passover that is the way to salvation. Then, where is the place where the second coming Christ has come? Through the place where the Passover of the New Covenant is being kept, we can know it.
Christ Ahnsahnghong came to this earth and be baptized in 1948 according to the prophecy of the fig tree. And He preached about the restoration of the truth of the New Covenant. -WMSCOG-
When did he come to this earth? How do we know it ?
Next time Let’s look into the second coming Christ with details.
