From the East...

God clearly lets us know that salvation is coming from the east in the last days. It is also evident that Christ is coming from the east in the last days to bring that salvation.

"and I saw the glory of the God of Israel coming from the east. His voice was like the roar of rushing waters, and the land was radiant with his glory."
Ezekiel 43:2

"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." Isaiah 41:2

"For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man." Matthew 24:27

When people read the above verses, they assume they are speaking about first coming Christ. However, first coming Christ came from the middle east. When the bible speaks about Christ coming from the 'east' it refers to the ends of the earth, not the middle of the earth

"Therefore in the east give glory to the Lord; exalt the name of the Lord, the God of Israel...v.16 From the ends of the earth we hear singing: " Glory to the Righteous One." Isaiah 24:15

"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." Isaiah 46:11

Then, all the above verses are actually testifying about second coming Christ.
Also, after first coming Christ already came the bible still says in Revelations:

"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." Revelations 7:2

Normally angels come from heaven, but this angel is coming from the earth. More specifically, from the EAST, in the last days. To bring us protection and salvation.

But where in the far east will he come? God gives us a HUGE hint...

"From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised."
Psalms 113:3

"From the west, men will fear the name of the Lord, and from the rising of the sun, they will revere his glory. For he will come like a pent-up flood that the breath of the Lord drives along." Isaiah 49:15

There is only one country in the world that is called the 'land of the rising sun', that place is Korea.

"so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting men may know there is none besides me. I am the Lord, and there is no other." Isaiah 45:6

"Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west."
Isaiah 43:5

"When a trumpet blast is sounded, the tribes camping on the east are to set out." Numbers 10:5

The only one who came from the east, from the rising of the sun, and gave us the way to eternal life is CHRIST AHNSAHNGHONG. He has saved us!
