I’ve heard a lot of World Mission Society Church Of God members claim that “Ahn Sahng-Hong had to preach the gospel for 37 years in order to fulfill the Prophecy of King David’s throne“. Let’s take a closer look at this claim.
After being raised Buddhist, Ahn Sahng-Hong was baptized into the Seventh Day Adventist Church in 1948. After supposedly staying with the Seventh Day Adventists for 16 years, the World Mission Society Church of God claims they were founded by Ahn Sahng-Hong in 1964 (a point up for debate given that Ahn actually seems to have founded the NCPCOG). Some WMSCOG members have claimed that Ahn Sahng-Hong had to be baptized into the SDA church originally because they were the only ones worshiping on Saturday, however, Jesus was not baptized into another religion, despite having been raised a Jew and this also begs the question, why did he not just start his own church in 1948?
To break down the math though, according to Ahn Sahng-Hong’s tombstone he lived from 1918 – 1985.
First of all, I haven’t seen a baptism record, so I don’t know for sure if he was baptized into the SDA church in 1948 as some claim, but lets say for sake of argument that he was.
If he preached for 37 years as the WMSCOG claims, then he would have had to start preaching in 1985-37=1948, supposedly the year he entered the SDA church.
Interestingly, Jesus began his ministry and started his own church at the point of his baptism. Ahn Sahng-Hong, on the other hand, did not begin to preach the “new covenant Passover” until he established his own church. That’s strange, but what’s more interesting is that the WMSCOG admits on their own site that Ahn didn’t “restore the Passover” until 1964, a full 16 years later than the supposed 1948. (Completely ignoring for a moment that Herbert Armstrong “restored the Passover” in his Worldwide Church of God about 30 years before Ahn Sahng-Hong supposedly did).
In an article titled, All the members of the Church of God over 70 nations Celebrated 2003 Passover of the New Covenant on April 16, 2003, the WMSCOG admits that:
“the Passover was restored after 1,600 years’ abolition and has been celebrated since 1964.” – © 2010 WMSCOG
Therefore, by their own words, Ahn Sahng-Hong did not preach his “new covenant Passover” for 37 years as they claim, but for only 21 years! This further proves that he did not fulfill the “prophecy of King David” as the WMSCOG claims.
We already have Ahn Sahng-Hong contradicting the Bible in Ahnsahnghong vs Scripture, and Ahn contradicting his own church in Ahnsahnghong vs WMSCOG. Now it looks like the church is contradicting themselves.
Thus, even according to the WMSCOG’s own manufactured prophesies, Ahn Sahng-Hong can not God.
