According to the Prophecy of The Bible
About 700 years before Jesus was born on this earth, the prophet Micah foretold His birthplace in the Old Testament.
2,000 years ago, when God came as a human, He was born in Bethlehem. Many events in Jesus’ life were fulfilment of prophecies from the Old Testament scriptures. Thus, it is important to examine the prophecies in the Bible carefully, so that we can recognize the Savior and receive salvation.
The Bible also prophesied that Jesus would appear a second time.
Just as the Bible foretells the location of Jesus’ coming to Bethlehem, it also tells the location of His second coming. Since the purpose of His second coming is to bring salvation, the starting point of the work of salvation is the location of His second coming.
The Man that brings Salvation from the East
In order to find this location, we need to find out where the work of salvation begins. The scriptures of the Old Testament prophesied that the Savior will appear from the east to bring salvation.
In the Bible, a bird of prey (an eagle) represents God (Deuteronomy 32:11-12). This was a prophecy that God will come as a man, from a far-off land in the east to bring salvation. As the prophet Isaiah recorded this prophecy in Israel, the far-off land refers to a land far away at the east of Israel. The prophecy does not refer to Jesus coming the first time as He was born within Israel, in Bethlehem. Let’s look at the New Testament for more details.
Last Work of Salvation Begins From the East
The scriptures of the New Testament prophesies that the work of salvation starts from the east.
The four angels would release four winds from the four corners of the earth which harms the earth. Since this is a disaster that will cover all corners of the earth, it would be the last disaster that people would face.
Another angel who had the seal of the living God comes up from the east. Those who received the seal of God on their foreheads will be saved from the last disaster. This work of putting a seal is the last work of salvation that God carries out to save His people on the earth before the last disaster. Like this, the Bible prophesies that God will begin his salvation work from the east.
The work of putting a seal is carried out during the time of Jesus’ second coming. We can understand this through a special sign. The Bible shows a special sign that accompanies the work of putting a seal
This special sign is seen at Jesus’ second coming in Matthew 24.
This special sign from the sun, moon, and stars is the same sign in Revelation 6 that occurred before the four winds of the earth were released (Revelations 6:12-13).
In Revelation 7, the work of putting a seal to save people begins after the special sign occurs.
In Matthew 24, Jesus comes again to do the salvation work after the special sign occurs.
The prophecy in Revelation 7 about the work of putting a seal before the last disaster refers to Jesus fulfilling the work of salvation when he comes a second time in Matthew 24.
As the last work of salvation begins from the east, Jesus who comes a second time to bring salvation must appear from the east.
The Seal of God appears from the East
Where specifically in the east is the location of His second coming? When Apostle John wrote the book of Revelations, he was on the Island of Patmos (Revelation 1:9) and the prophet Isaiah prophesied about the Savior whilst he was in Israel. Considering both Apostle John and Prophet Isaiah’s points of origin, Jesus will come again from a far-off land in the east of Patmos and Israel. There are many lands and countries in the east of Patmos and Israel. More specifically, He must appear from the east with the seal of God to fulfil the last work of salvation.
The seal of God refers to the New Covenant Passover. (see Article The Seal of God for more details). Thus, the location of Jesus’ second coming is the location where the New Covenant Passover appears.
The truth of the Passover has been abolished since a long time ago (see Passover: Changed in History for more details). However, Christ Ahnsahnghong restored the Passover and started to preach it in Korea from 1948. Since then, He has established the World Mission Society Church of God which keeps the truth of the Passover and continues to preach it to the whole world. As the truth of the Passover appeared in Korea, the location in the east refers to Korea.
Christ Ahnsahnghong is the Second Coming Christ who has appeared in the east from Korea according to this prophecy. He fulfils the purpose of bringing salvation by restoring the truth of the Passover. Please visit the World Mission Society Church of God to receive the truth that leads to salvation!
