This article is dedicated to a man whose wife doesn’t live with him because of disagreements over WMSCOG involvement. May she come home soon.
The Mystery of God and the Spring of the Water of Life, or better known as “The Green Book”, is a book read in the WMSCOG written by Ahn Sahng-Hong, a man they incorrectly claim to be the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. Since Ahn Sahng-Hong is their false god, this book effectively serves as an addendum to Holy Scripture, much like the Book of Mormon.
So if God writes a book, do you think that book should change over time? It’s reasonable to have minor translation differences between languages, but what if the changes were not simply translation differences? What if they removed certain paragraphs entirely? What if those paragraphs that were removed just happened to testify against what they teach now?
When we compare a 1993 edition of the 1967 Green Book to the Green Book in 2000, we find some curious changes:
What is clear is that Ahn Sahng-Hong predicted the end of the world within 40 years in his 1967 writing. This is a 1993 edition of the 1967 book according to the publisher’s information. Ahn, apparently writing in 1967, even explicitly states that he believes Matthew 24:31-34 refers to the “last one generation”:
However, in a copy of the Green Book from 2000 we find Ahn’s predictions about the end of the world have been removed:
It’s interesting to note the parts of the book which were removed were the ones that did not come true.
The world did not end within 40 years of Ahn’s prophecy, and those prophecies subsequently disappeared from his writings in the Green Book read in the WMSCOG.
- Paragraph 3 last line removed – “This word is about the last one generation.”
- Paragraph 4 removed completely: “Therefore it is the Last Church that will be changed alive and go up to heaven. So the last secret, unsealing of the seven thunders cannot be in the church established more than 40 years ago.”
- Paragraph 5 last line removed: “So this Last Church should be ended up within 40 years.”

To those who believe in Ahn–any explanation is good enough, to those who do not–no explanation is necessary.
