Biblical Answers to the World Mission Society Church of God

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.--1 John 4:1

Are you or a loved one struggling with this group? Do you need Biblical answers about the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCoG or CoGWMS), their founder Ahnsahnghong (Ahn Sahng/Sang-Hong) or their current leader "Mother Jerusalem" (a.k.a. "Heavenly Mother God," Zang/Zahng Gil-Jah, or Chung Gil Cha)? Thank you for coming here. I hope my blog helps you. Questions and comments are always welcome.

Examining Prophecies--The Last Adam

A continuing look at the prophecies the World Mission Society Church of God uses to prove Ahnsahngong as God, the second coming Christ. Remember, the goal is to see if the prophecies point to Ahnsahnghong as the unique one to fulfill them....

When Christ returns for the second time
He will come as the last Adam.
Rom. 5:14, "Nevertheless death reigned from Adam to Moses, even over those who had not sinned according to the likeness of the transgression of Adam, who is a type of Him who was to come."
1 Cor. 15:45, "And so it is written, “The first man Adam became a living being.” The last Adam became a life-giving spirit.'"

First of all, the WMSCOG says that Paul (in Romans 5:14) is not talking about Jesus, but about the Second Coming Christ. They think that since Paul says that Adam “was a type of Him who was to come” and since Jesus had already come when this was written, that Paul must be referring to one "to come” in the future. But this is not correct. Reading the following verses (vv. 15-21) and it is obvious that Paul is contrasting Adam and Jesus. To read verse 14 grammatically correct, think of it this way—Adam, in his time, was a pattern of the one who was to come, after Adam’s time. Paul was writing about Jesus in verse 14, but since I’m trying to look at things from a WMSCOG perspective, I’m going to put that aside and continue on…

So, coming “in the pattern of Adam” according the WMSCOG means:
1. From 1 Cor. 15:45, the Last Adam is a “life giving spirit”—he will give us spiritual life. How is spiritual life given? Through the Passover.  
2. From Adam came Eve, the mother of all living. The Last Adam will give us (show us) the Heavenly Mother.

In regards to #1, this is one of the prophecies related to Passover. I'm going to tackle the Passover prophecies later. But let’s consider #2, the Last Adam showed us the Heavenly Mother…

When I had the chance to talk to my sister’s study leader, I asked her what it was that qualified this woman in Korea as the Heavenly Mother? Are there prophecies concerning her that would point to that woman in particular, over all the other women on earth, as the Heavenly Mother? The answer was … No, we know she is the Heavenly Mother because Ahnsahnghong said so—he pointed her out; it’s on his word.

So now, disregarding scriptures used to prove the existence of a “Mother God”, let’s think about if the “last Adam” prophecy can point out Ahnsahnghong as the Second Coming Christ. Here’s how the argument goes…. Second Coming Christ will show us who the Heavenly Mother is. Ahnsahnghong said that Zang Gil-Jah (or Chung Gil Cha, I'm not certain of the spelling) is the Heavenly Mother. Ahnsahnghong is right because he is the Second Coming Christ. How do we know he’s the Second Coming Christ? Well, because he showed us the Heavenly Mother, of course.

It is a circular argument. It doesn’t prove anything. This prophecy fails to point out any particular person as the second coming Christ since anyone can point to any woman and say, “There she is, your heavenly mother!” This prophecy (even if it were interpreted correctly), is only useful after you have already proven someone to be the Christ.

As for the existence of a "Mother God" at all...that it a topic for another day.
