The history of the Garden of Eden shows us the origin of human beings and the origin of death. And in the Garden of Eden, we can also find the secret of life. After sinning in the Garden of Eden, human beings are destined to die. Then, how can we be saved from death?

Second Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong taught us that in order to receive eternal life, we must eat from the “Tree of Life.” The Bible prophesied that Jesus would come a second time with the fruit of the Tree of Life and give eternal life to human beings who were destined to die. It is Christ Ahnsahnghong who brought us the Tree of Life. That is why the Church of God believes in Him as the Second Coming Jesus.

Then, what is the Tree of Life? How do we know Christ Ahnsahnghong brought us the Tree of Life? Let’s understand through the teachings of Christ:[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Matthew 13:34-35 Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world.”

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]Jesus explained that there have been secrets hidden since the creation of the world. One secret pertains to our eternal life. Therefore, we must find the secret hidden in the creation—the book of Genesis.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”false” bg_type=”no_bg” parallax_style=”vcpb-default” bg_image_repeat=”no-repeat” bg_image_size=”cover” bg_img_attach=”fixed” parallax_sense=”30″ animation_direction=”left-animation” animation_repeat=”repeat” parallax_content_sense=”30″ fadeout_start_effect=”30″ bg_override=”0″ inertia=”0.1″ bg_grad=”background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0%, #FBFBFB), color-stop(50%, #E3E3E3), color-stop(100%, #C2C2C2));background: -moz-linear-gradient(top,#FBFBFB 0%,#E3E3E3 50%,#C2C2C2 100%);background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top,#FBFBFB 0%,#E3E3E3 50%,#C2C2C2 100%);background: -o-linear-gradient(top,#FBFBFB 0%,#E3E3E3 50%,#C2C2C2 100%);background: -ms-linear-gradient(top,#FBFBFB 0%,#E3E3E3 50%,#C2C2C2 100%);background: linear-gradient(top,#FBFBFB 0%,#E3E3E3 50%,#C2C2C2 100%);”][vc_column width=”1/1″][headline_box text=”Things Hidden Since the Creation of the World” align=”Center”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Genesis 2:16-17 And the LORD God commanded the man, “You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat from it you will certainly die.”

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]In the Garden of Eden, God placed the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. He commanded Adam and Eve not to eat from it, but after giving into the serpent’s temptation, they disobeyed God’s command. Consequently, human beings are destined to face death. But, has God ever given us an opportunity to avoid such a destiny?[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Genesis 3:22 And the LORD God said, “The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.”

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]As stated in the above verse, there is only one way for us to live forever. It is to eat from the Tree of Life. Then, how can we eat from the Tree of Life? Since God is the One who banned sinners from eating of the Tree of Life, then God must be the only One who can allow us to eat from it again. So Jesus, who is God, came to save us by revealing the secret of how to eat from the Tree of Life.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

John 10:10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]The words, “I have come that they may have life,” mean, “I have come that they may eat from the tree of life.”[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][headline_box text=”What is the Reality of the Tree of Life” align=”Center”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]From Genesis, God revealed what we must eat to live forever—the Tree of Life.

John 6:53-54 Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise them up at the last day.”

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text]Through Jesus’ own words, we can see that Jesus, His flesh and blood, is the reality of the Tree of Life. By eating Jesus’ flesh and blood, we can eat the fruit of the Tree of Life that was forbidden to Adam and Eve after sinning in the Garden of Eden. We should eat Jesus’ flesh and blood in order to have eternal life. Now, we need to know how to eat Jesus’ flesh and drink His blood, the reality of the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden. Clearly, it is impossible to eat Jesus Himself. Then, what do the words in John 6:53 mean? These words refer to the words of Matthew 26:17, through which we can find the way to eat the flesh and blood of Jesus.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”false” bg_type=”no_bg” parallax_style=”vcpb-default” bg_image_repeat=”no-repeat” bg_image_size=”cover” bg_img_attach=”fixed” parallax_sense=”30″ animation_direction=”left-animation” animation_repeat=”repeat” parallax_content_sense=”30″ fadeout_start_effect=”30″ bg_override=”0″ inertia=”0.1″ bg_grad=”background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0%, #FBFBFB), color-stop(50%, #E3E3E3), color-stop(100%, #C2C2C2));background: -moz-linear-gradient(top,#FBFBFB 0%,#E3E3E3 50%,#C2C2C2 100%);background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top,#FBFBFB 0%,#E3E3E3 50%,#C2C2C2 100%);background: -o-linear-gradient(top,#FBFBFB 0%,#E3E3E3 50%,#C2C2C2 100%);background: -ms-linear-gradient(top,#FBFBFB 0%,#E3E3E3 50%,#C2C2C2 100%);background: linear-gradient(top,#FBFBFB 0%,#E3E3E3 50%,#C2C2C2 100%);”][vc_column width=”1/1″][headline_box text=”How Can We Eat Jesus’ Flesh and Blood?” align=”Center”][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”2/3″][vc_column_text]

Matthew 26:17-28 On the first day of the Festival of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Where do you want us to make preparations for you to eat the Passover?” He replied, “Go into the city to a certain man and tell him, ‘The Teacher says: my appointed time is near. I am going to celebrate the Passover with my disciples at your house.’ ” So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover… While they were eating, Jesus took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take and eat; this is my body.” Then he took a cup, and when he had given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, “Drink from it, all of you. This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.”

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][vc_column_text]Jesus said that the bread and wine of the Passover is His flesh and blood. Eating the Passover bread and drinking the Passover wine is eating of the Tree of Life in the Garden of Eden. So far, we have read that the Tree of Life is a parable and its reality is Jesus’ flesh and blood, which we can receive through the New Covenant Passover. And Jesus, who allowed us to eat from the Tree of Life, is God.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]However, the truth of the New Covenant Passover was abolished at the Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D. This means that way to the Tree of Life was hidden and no one could have eternal life. We cannot expect salvation without the Passover. In this situation, the only One who is able to restore the Passover, that is, the Tree of Life, is God—just as it was 2,000 years ago.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]

Hebrews 9:28 So Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.

[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_column_text]The purpose of Christ’s second coming is for our salvation. Our salvation means the restoration of the New Covenant Passover, the way to eat from the Tree of Life. The One who allowed us the truth of the New Covenant Passover is Ahnsahnghong. Therefore, Ahnsahnghong is Christ who came in this age according to all the prophecies of the Bible. Christ Ahnsahnghong is God who restored the truth of the Passover, the Tree of Life, to give us eternal life.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_empty_space height=”75px”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
