Ahn Sahng Hong Vs. The WMSCOG
Ahn Sahng Hong, the man who the World Mission Society Church of God believes was the Second Coming of Christ, preached certain beliefs. The World Mission Society Church of God preaches beliefs that are the total opposite of what Ahn Sahng Hong preached.
|Ahn Sahng Hong wrote:||But the WMSCOG teaches:|
|“Salvation is found in no other name than Jesus, not only at His first coming but even in the last days.” – The Mystery of God and the Spring of the Water of Life, p. 181||“Today, salvation is only given through the name of […] Ahnsahnghong.” – The Savior of Each Age and the New Name|
“Even by the name of Jehovah, by the name Jesus, oh, I could not be saved. To this sinful son, Father Ahn Sahng Hong God Almighty came down with the bread of life. He has saved me.” – New Song #145
|“In this age of the Holy Spirit, God our Mother has come as the free Woman like Sarah, and She bears children of promise and leads them to everlasting heavenly kingdom. No one can go to heaven except through Mother.” – God the Father and God the Mother (2008), p. 238|
|“To speak again, as we have our human fathers through whom our bodies are given birth, so we have our spiritual Father who created our spirits by His breath of life.” – Visitors from the Angelic World, p. 65||“the One who is indispensable for giving eternal life is our Mother, the wife of the Lamb, represented by Eve” – The Heavenly Wedding Banquet|
Who do Adam and Eve represent?
|“Adam represents Jesus who was in the world of angels before the creation, and Eve represents the angels whom Jesus loved.” – Visitors from the Angelic World, p. 50||“If Adam represents the Second Coming Jesus, whom does Eve, the wife of Adam, represent? Eve, called the ‘mother of all the living’ (Ge 3:20), represents our Heavenly Mother …” – The Sabbath and God the Creator|
|“Thus, Jesus is the last Adam, and the saints who are redeemed can be called the last Eve.” – Visitors From the Angelic World, p. 55.||“Through Adam and Eve who appear in Genesis, the first book of the Bible, God showed us the last Adam, who is the life-giving Spirit, and the last Eve, who is Life and the Mother of all the Living.” – God the Father and God the Mother (2008), p. 263|
Interpretation of Galatians Chapter 4
|“The only reason that the Apostle Paul wrote Galatians 4:22-26 is to clarify that the history of the family of Abraham is a prophecy. Nevertheless, Um Soo In claims that she is the Heavenly Jerusalem and that she has come down to earth. According to the prophecy of Galatians 4:22-24, Sarah is the Heavenly Jerusalem. However, if the New Jerusalem is Um Soo In, she has then married her son. The reason for this is that Isaac is the son of Sarah, and it is said that Isaac is also Christ. (Gal. 3:16)” – Problems with New Jerusalem, The Bride and Women’s Veils (1983), Chapter 7, The Jerusalem in Heaven is Our Mother||“The Bible clearly tells us that there is our spiritual Mother above (in heaven). We were angels in heaven, but our sins separated us from our Mother and caused us to be cast down to the earth. Because of the sins we had committed in heaven, we lost our memory and couldn’t remember our Mother. Our sins caused our Mother to come from heaven to this earth.” – God the Father and God the Mother (2008), p. 218|
Though the WMSCOG claims that Ahn Sahng Hong’s analysis of the same verses only applies to Um Soo In, it is painstakingly obvious that Ahn Sahng Hong’s analysis applies to Zhang Gil Jah as well.
The New Jerusalem – A Place or Person?
|[After quoting Hebrews 9:11-12 (The Most Holy Place)]|
“The temple on earth that was built in Judea could be seen by the human eye and could be felt by human hands. However, the temple in Heaven cannot be seen with the eyes of this world and cannot be touched by unclean hands. Because it is a holy temple, whether it exists or does not cannot even be imagined with the human mind.” – Problems with New Jerusalem, The Bride and Women’s Veils (1983), Chapter 8 The Heavenly New Jerusalem is Real and Material
|“In the Bible, the Most Holy Place means the heavenly Jerusalem our Mother (2 Ch 3:8, 1 Ki 6:19-20, Rev 21:9-16).” – God the Father and God the Mother (2008), p. 232|
|“The New Jerusalem which is written of in Revelation 21:1-4, the tabernacle of God, abides with human beings. However, this tabernacle is a spiritual building not a person.” – Problems with New Jerusalem, The Bride and Women’s Veils (1983), Chapter 8 The Heavenly New Jerusalem is Real and Material||[After quoting Galatians 4:26-31]|
“Our heavenly Mother has been worrying about our safety since the world began. Since we have been cast down to this earth, the city of refuge, by committing sin in heaven, our Mother has also come to this earth and is with us.” – God the Father and God the Mother (2008), p. 211
Who is the Bride in the Bible?
|“Um Soo In claims that she is the bride in the passage ‘The Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come!’. Furthermore, it is incredible that Um Soo In says that the voice in the passage ‘and I heard a loud voice from the throne’ is Um Soo In herself.|
The Throne of God is a place that only He abides and the Lamb of God is at the right hand of God. The loud voice coming from the throne cannot come except from the Lamb of God. Nevertheless, the fact that Um Soo In arrogantly states that she has made the loud voice reveals that she is extremely mentally ill.” – Problems with New Jerusalem, The Bride and Women’s Veils (1983), Chapter 16, She Claims To Be The Only Bride
“The Spirit is God the Father in the Trinity. So His Bride must be God the Mother. Now the
Spirit and the Bride say, ‘Come! Take the water of life!’…God came in the flesh as the Spirit and the Bride to call us.” – watv.org
|“The bride of the Lamb are the 144,000 saints who have accepted the Gospel.” – Problems with New Jerusalem, The Bride and Women’s Veils (1983), Chapter 15, A Study on the New Jerusalem of Revelation 21||“In Revelation 21, Jerusalem is described as the ‘bride, the wife of the Lamb,’ and in Galatians as ‘our Mother.’ The Bride is our Heavenly Mother, who gives us the water of life together with our Father who is the Spirit.” – God the Father and God the Mother (2008), p. 198|
|“It is true that the bride here is the same bride found in Revelation 21:9-10. Since it is written, ‘Come, I will show you the bride, the wife of the Lamb,’ the wife of the Lamb is the saints.” – Problems with New Jerusalem, The Bride and Women’s Veils (1983), Chapter 16, She Claims To Be The Only Bride||“The angel said to John that he would show him the ‘bride, the wife of the Lamb,’ and then showed him Jerusalem. Here, we can see that Jerusalem represents the wife of the Lamb. Jerusalem is our spiritual Mother who gives us eternal life.” – God the Father and God the Mother (2008), p. 183|
Why is this important?
It is abundantly clear that Joo Cheol Kim has completely distorted Ahn Sahng Hong’s teachings. The World Mission Society Church of God claims to believe that Ahn Sahng Hong was the Second Coming of Jesus, and therefore God Himself. Why would the World Mission Society Church of God teach things that are not only contradictory, but at times the complete opposite, of what Ahn Sahng Hong preached? The Bible clearly says, so does the World Mission Society Church of God for that matter, do not add or take away from the Bible (Revelation 22:19). Therefore, if you are a member reading this, the “because mother said” excuse should not be a sufficient reason for you to continue worshipping Zhang Gil Jah.
