Christ Ahnsahnghong (fulfilling prophecies)

The Old Testament is a book of testimonies about the coming of Jesus Christ, the messiah, by which God’s people would recognize Him when he came to earth. Unfortunately only 12 men were able to recognize their savior, while the rest crucified him. Now let’s see on of the testimonies of how Jesus Christ was prophesied in the Old Testament by studying the prophecy of king David.

As mentioned before (in an older post) Jesus came fulfilling the prophecy of King David. Today we’ll see some other prophetical points concerning King David that Jesus Christ fulfilled.

2 Samuel 5:3-4 When all the elders of Israel had come to King David at Hebron, the king made a compact with them at Hebron before the LORD, and they anointed David king over Israel. 4 David was thirty years old when he became king, and he reigned forty years.

In this verse we see how K. David started his kingdom at the age of 30 and he reigned for 40 yrs. Let’s see how Jesus fulfilled this prophecy

Luke 3:21-23 When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying… a voice came from heaven: "You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased." 23Now Jesus himself was about thirty years old when he began his ministry...

Jesus started his ministry by being spiritually anointed through baptism at the age of 30 but the time he preached was for only 3 years and not 40 (like K. David). The reason was that Jesus was to come again to reveal the secrets of the truth which were sealed.

Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was sacrificed once to take away 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.
Since the word of God is absolute, Jesus was to come back to fulfill the prophecy of king David being baptized at the age of 30 and preaching the gospel for 37 years (in order to complete the prophecy about the throne of David-40 years of reign)

Isaiah 55:3 Give ear and come to me; hear me, that your soul may live. I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love promised to David.
God said that an everlasting covenant was promised to David, through which we will have eternal life. The covenant that God made with us was through the blood of the Passover (Matthew 26), meaning that the prophetical King David has to give us back the Passover (which had not been kept for about 1700 years) in the last days.

It is Christ Ahnsahnghong who had led the mortal human beings to the way of life through the eternal covenant (Passover). He is David who has appeared in the last days according to the prophecies of the bible, and He is the Second coming Christ Jesus who fulfilled the 40 of reign (ministry) according to the prophecy. Christ Ahnsahnghong fulfilled the prophecies of the throne of David; he was baptized in 1948 when he was 30 yrs old, preached the gospel for exactly 37 years and ascended to heaven in 1985. Even though He was extremely distressed and troubled during 37-year ministry on this earth, He always gave us good things, opened the way of eternal life by restoring all the truths of the new covenant, and let us know the new Jerusalem, our Heavenly Mother, who is the source of Life. All thanks and praise be to Christ Ahnsahnghong.
