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.

Daniel's Prophecy

One of the most impressive things about the Bible (for me, at least) is its record of fulfilled prophecy.  The fulfilled prophecies in the book of Daniel are especially intriguing.

The World Mission Society Church of God uses Daniel's prophecies to amaze their new or potential converts.  What's wrong with this?

First, to the uninformed person, it sounds as if the WMSCOG is sharing a spectacular revelation.  The hearer may think, "Wow!  If the WMSCOG can reveal something so amazing, what else can they tell me about the Bible?  Maybe I should listen to them."  What the hearer may not realize is that this is NOT a revelation that originated with the WMSCOG.  Bible scholars for ages have written about Daniels fulfilled prophecies.

Second, the WMSCOG takes the fulfillment of these prophecies a step too far.  They have withheld the true facts of history in order to force the appearance of a fulfilled prophecy, and the WMSCOG is not the only group who has made this error.

I've already examined this at length regarding the claim that the Papacy is the Antichrist.  But with the WMSCOG's "Evidence Book" in my hand, the errors are so glaring at me that I believe it needs to be revisited.

Many Bible scholars agree that the four kingdoms of Daniel are:
  • the Babylonian Empire (head of gold)
  • the Medo-Persian Empire (chest and arms of silver)
  • the Greek Empire (belly and thighs of copper)
  • the Roman Empire (legs of iron)
Note that some identify the four beasts of Daniel 7 the same way, but others divide the Medes and Persians for the second and third beasts, making the Greek Empire the fourth beast.  You can read about that here.  If you need to refresh your memory, here's where you can read Daniel 2 (the dream of the statue) and Daniel 7 (the vision of the four beasts).

It's when we get to the statue's feet and toes partly of iron and partly of clay, and the ten horns of the fourth beast, with the little horn that comes up to subdue three horns... that's where you see a few more differences among the Bible scholars, and that's where the WMSCOG takes a definite wrong turn.

Let's take a look into their "Evidence Book."

On page 154, it says,
Rome exercised its power politically and religiously.  It was divided into ten countries until 476 A.D.
Lombards (Italy)
Franks (France)
Burgundians (Switzerland)
Visigoths (Spain)
Suevi (Portugal)
Alemanni (Germany)
Anglo-Saxons (England)
Vandals, Heruli, and Ostrogoths.
The Lombards did not cross the Danube into Roman territory until the 540s, and did not enter Italy until 568.  (My links for you are from Wikipedia for your convenience, but you can look up this information in any printed history book also.  I can refer you to some if you need it.)

This list of "ten countries" also ignores other tribal groups such as the Bretons, the Bavarians, and the Basques, who show up in various history books and maps, and does not mention that the eastern part of the Roman Empire was still alive and well.  So these "ten countries" are not as clear as they are presented to be.

Then moving on to page 158, we read,
After Rome was divided into ten countries from 351 to 476 A.D., Heruli was destroyed by the Papacy in 493 A.D., Vandals in 534 and Ostrogoths in 538.  The Papacy was established in 538 A.D.  The Papacy fell in 1798 A.D. (Pius VI was forced into exile when French troupes invaded the Vatican.)
The Evidence Book gives paragraphs of information about the end of the Heruli and the Vandals, but only one sentence about the Ostrogoths, on page 159.  It happens to be the line taken from the Wikipedia page about the year 538.

Why didn't they say any more about the Ostrogoths?  Because they were NOT destroyed in 538.  Read about the Gothic War and you'll see that the Ostrogoths put up a fierce and long resistance, and their last king wasn't killed until 553.

Also, the Papacy was NOT "established" in 538, which you can read about here.  There is more information about the dates of 538 and 1798, and their error and misuse, here and here.

One last page to look at, page 175.

This page says that the remaining seven kingdoms accepted Catholicism and swore allegiance to the Pope.  What they haven't told us is that:
  • The Anglo-Saxons did not convert to Christianity until the 7th century.
  • The Alemanni were conquered and incorporated into the Frankish kingdom in 496, and also did not convert to Christianity until the 7th century.
  • The Lombards did not secure their kingdom in Italy until 572.
  • The Burgundians were destroyed in 534, and were mostly Catholic by the time they were conquered.
  • The Suevi were also eventually conquered in 585, after they had converted to Catholicism.
Therefore, by the time the Ostrogoths were destroyed (in 553, not 538), there were 5 kingdoms conquered, not 3, and one more if you extend the time to 585.

Then near the bottom of the page, under the title "The Dark Ages," they tell us there was the "slaughtering of numerous saints."  According to the WMSCOG's own doctrine, this is impossible because they claim there were no saints during that time.

They also put the development of Protestantism after the supposed fall of the Papacy in 1798.  Protestantism, which began with the Reformation in 1517, was already well developed by then.

I know I've gone over all this in previous posts, but I thought you would like to see it with the pages from the Evidence Book for comparison.

It's quite interesting to study what Bible scholars have to say about this part of Daniel's prophecy.  But do not make the mistake of studying the false 'facts' of the World Mission Society Church of God.


  1. wmscog copied a lot of their doctrins from seventh day adventist. nothing original.

  2. Yes, exactly. And it's no wonder since Ahnsahnghong was baptized by the Seventh Day Adventists. Thanks, ajumma, for the link for more information about it.

  3. I explained to one sister about the date of which ostrogoth was destroyed about it doesn't fit with the prophecies we were taught. She just said, I'm glad you found enough evidence to justify your actions. Normally she would dispute me and ask me to go back and study. But I think this time she gave up trying to reconvince me of who god really is. I just hope she understands that she along with many other members are giving false information about history. History isn't left up to interpretation so these things cannt be mistaken.

  4. WMSCOG is the true church ever and ever. It is established by God.

    1. Friend ,would you please think about what i show you. Just consider it . Did you know that Israel in the O.T. worshipped The true God ,but also wanted to worship false idols of the nations around them.
      2 Kings 17:33, 41 Please read the whole chapter . God was very displeased with this set up.

      Idols are whatever we make as an idol, God is a jealous God. We are to worship God and Him only . In the book of Psalms it says you become whatever you worship Psalms 135: 18
      Do you really think that your mother Zahng Gil-Jah is a god to worship? Look , she is human just like you and me . She goes to the toilet like you and me ,has to take a shower , has to go to the doctor when she gets sick like you and me . Grows old just like you and me . That pretty much confirms shes a sinner like you and me . Mary the mother of our Lord Jesus Christ needed a Savior. Luke 1:46. And mary said: my soul exalts the Lord, And my spirit has rejoiced in God my Savior "
      Do you really need a mother when Jesus Christ said. Matt. 11: 28-30. Come to me all you who labour and are heavy laden......
      In. John 14:6 Jesus said. I am the way ,the truth , and the life, no man comes to the Father except through Me.
      consider that the Bible was written long before Ahnsahnghong came on the scene . The apostle Paul wrote in 2 Cor. 11:3-4 about another Jesus who is false . see also Galation 1:6-9
      So don't be a prisoner in your mind to whoever came after the Bible was written

    2. I agree that Zahng Gil-Jah is no god and does not deserve God's worship for herself. But Jesus also would have had to use the toilet and take a shower, and He did grow older (into an adult), so that in itself doesn't confirm sinner-status. However, He did rise from the dead, which Ahnsahnghong did not, and Zahng Gil-Jah will not.
