As the writer of the book of Ecclesiastes once wrote everything has a beginning and an end; nothing on this earth lasts forever. It is the same with life. From the moment of birth, every living creature walks a path towards death, including mankind. Although everyone must eventually face death, it’s not natural to us. Everyone looks for ways to prolong life and even desiring to know the secret to live forever. However, the answer to eternal life is in the Bible.
This fulfilled what God had spoken through the prophet: “I will speak to you in parables. I will explain things hidden since the creation of the world.”
Matthew 13:35 (NLT)
Two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ spoke in parables. He spoke of mysteries of heaven that had been hidden since the creation of the world. So what is the secret in the book of Genesis that is related to eternal life?
In the Garden of Eden, God created Adam and Eve as eternal beings. However, they sinned against God and became mortal, consequently having to face death.
This was not only Adam and Eve’s destiny, it’s also our destiny today. Inevitably, we all have to die. Yet, there is a secret in the Bible that allows us to regain the eternal life we once had in heaven.
Then the Lord God said, “Look, human beings have become like us, knowing both good and evil. What if they reach out, take fruit from the tree of life, and eat it? Then they will live forever!”
Genesis 3:22 (NLT)
Eating from the tree of life can give us eternal life. But God blocked the way to the tree of life (Gen 3:24). This was a hidden secret until Jesus Christ came to the earth. Because it was God who blocked the way for man to reach the tree of life, it is only God who can grant us access to eat from it again and regain eternal life.
Passover Is the Tree of Life
So Jesus said again, “I tell you the truth, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you cannot have eternal life within you. But anyone who eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal life, and I will raise that person at the last day.”
John 6:53 (NLT)
Jesus Christ let us know the way to live forever is to eat His flesh and drink His blood. This is the secret to eternal life. Eating Christ’s flesh and drinking His blood is eating from the tree of life itself. Thus, Christ’s flesh and blood are the reality of the tree of life.
Jesus said, “I have been very eager to eat this Passover meal with you before my suffering begins…” He took some bread and gave thanks to God for it. Then he broke it in pieces and gave it to the disciples, saying, “This is my body, which is given for you…” After supper he took another cup of wine and said, “This cup is the new covenant between God and his people—an agreement confirmed with my blood, which is poured out as a sacrifice for you.”
Luke 22:15-20 (NLT)
Jesus Christ opened the way for us to eat from the tree of life and live forever by establishing the New Covenant Passover. If we celebrate the Passover, as Jesus taught us, we can regain our eternal life.
It’s important to remember that it was God who blocked the way to the tree of life, and only God can unblock it. Because Jesus Christ unblocked the way to the tree of life, through the Passover, we can understand that He is God incarnate.
Second Coming Christ, Ahnsahnghong
The apostles followed Christ because they recognized this truth. They understood that He was God in the flesh who came to the earth to grant eternal life. For centuries, the Early Church followed the teachings of Christ, celebrating the Passover year after year, as Jesus commanded. But, eventually, the Passover was abolished. At this time, again, the tree of life was inaccessible to mankind. But God promised to return to the earth and, again, give us access to eat from the tree of life.
So Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
Just as prophesied in the lesson of the fig tree, in 1948, God came to the earth a second time with a new name (Rev 3:12-13; Rev 2:17), Christ Ahnsahnghong. He restored the Passover, again opening the way for mankind to eat from the tree of life. When we celebrate the New Covenant Passover, we can eat from the tree of life and have eternal life.
This secret had been hidden for more than 1,600 years. Though many people studied the Bible and many churches and religions have been established around the world since the time of Jesus, no one could re-establish the Passover. As illustrated in the book of Genesis, only God has the power and authority to open the way to the tree of life—establish the Passover on this earth. Because of that, millions of members of the World Mission Society Church of God believe in Christ Ahnsahnghong.
