December 25, 2011 marked the 94th birthday of Second Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong, who was born on December 1, 1918 according to the lunar calendar. On this day, the east coast branches of the World Mission Society Church of God gathered for a special commemorative service to give thanks to the Savior who came in the name of King David. Over 1,100 brothers and sisters worshiped Second Coming Christ at the Meadowlands Sheraton Ballroom.
Beginning at noon, members viewed memorabilia display Father’s great sacrifice while looking for His lost children. The exhibit was complete with pictures of Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother, as well as a simple kerosine oil lamp like the one Father used while writing the books of truth. During His life on this earth, Heavenly Father Christ Ahnsahnghong broke stones during the day as a stonemason in order to make a living; and, through the night, He wrote all the books that revealed to us all the prophesies in the Bible. Members were deeply touched to see a picture of Father bent over His pages, writing as small as He could in order to communicate to His loved children all He had to share. Brothers and sisters pictured Father praying that His light would last a little longer as He wrote so that He may let us know the truth.
Before service, which started at 2:30pm, members watched videos of plays portraying Biblical stories while enjoying a delicious lunch prepared by members of the Church of God in New York. They also watched a special video of Heavenly Mother’s message for Her children on Father’s Coming Day. Service commenced with a special performance by the Messiah Choir. Their songs included a unique rendition of Handel’s “Messiah.” The sermon for this special service was “King David,” explaining how Christ Ahnsahnghong fulfilled the Biblical prophesy of King David who came in these last days.
Although the World Mission Society Church of God was celebrating Father’s Coming Day on December 25th, the celebration was unrelated to Christmas, which the rest of the world celebrated. On December 25, people traditionally sing praises to Jesus Christ for His coming. However, historians and Biblicists confirm this day is, in fact, not the birth date of Jesus Christ. Hence, this past December 25th, unbeknownst to the rest of the world, everyone was truly giving thanks to Father Christ Ahnsahnghong for His coming, the true King David in these last days.
