Ahn Sahng-Hong Did Not Preach for 37 Years
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.
Ahn Sahng Hong’s History
After being raised Buddhist, the WMSCOG claims that Ahn Sahng Hong was baptized into the Seventh Day Adventist Church in 1948. Baptism documents have proved his baptism date to be a complete fabrication by the WMSCOG. Ahn Sahng Hong’s real baptism date was October 9, 1954. After remaining a member of the Seventh Day Adventists for 10 years, Ahn Sahng Hong was kicked out in 1962. The World Mission Society Church of God claims they were founded by Ahn Sahng Hong in 1964. In actuality, Ahn Sahng Hong established his own church, the Witnesses of Jesus Church of God, on April 28, 1964.
WMSCOG members have claimed that Ahn Sahng Hong had to have been 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. This begs the question, why did he not start his own church in 1948 or 1954 (Ahn Sahng Hong’s real baptism date)?
To break down the math though, according to Ahn Sahng-Hong’s tombstone he lived from 1918 – 1985.
Let’s say for the sake of argument that Ahn Sahng Hong was baptized in 1948 as the WMSCOG claims.
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. This still does not work.
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 in 1964. A fact that the World Mission Society Church of God admits on their own website. This is a full 16 years later than the supposed 1948 baptism date. (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).
The WMSCOG Contradicts Themselves on Ahn Sahng Hong’s 37 Year Ministry
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.
Thus, even according to the WMSCOG’s own manufactured prophesies, Ahn Sahng Hong was not God.
