2000 years ago, God himself came down to this earth in the flesh and dwelt among his people. Even though there were many wise men, scholars, and philosophers in those days, nobody could recognize the Christ and receive him. If they could, they would have received the salvation and eternal life in heaven. Rather they rejected him and persecuted him, calling him as a man who claimed to be God. Even though there were many rabbis, teachers of the laws, and religious leaders, they could not know the Christ with their own wisdom. That is why the Christ is called the mystery or secret which a man cannot know with his wisdom or understanding or knowledge.
Colossians 2:2 ….. in order that they may know the mystery of God, namely, Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
No man could know the Christ with his own wisdom and understanding.
1 Corinthians 2:20 Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him,
2 Corinthians 4:3 And even if our gospel is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.
Even though there were many scholars who studied the bible many years, they could not know this mystery, Christ. It would be the same in the last days when the Second Coming Christ comes. There would be many scholars, wise men, and philosophers, but no one will recognize the Christ who comes as man in the flesh. They will stumble and fall down on him. Just as Jesus said, “Blessed is the man who does not fall away on account of me,” the same thing will happen when he comes for the second time. That much is it hard for people to know the true Christ. About his second coming Jesus already prophesied that he would be rejected when he comes.
Luke 17:25 But first he (the Second Coming Christ) must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation.
Just as he suffered many things in his first coming, he would suffer many things and be rejected by people in his second coming too. Why? It is because there would be nobody who can recognize the Christ when he comes. If we cannot have wisdom to know Christ through the wisdom of the world, then what kind of wisdom should we have?
2 Corinthians 2:6 We do, however, speak a message of wisdom among the mature, but not the wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are coming to nothing. 7 No, we declare God’s wisdom, a mystery that has been hidden and that God destined for our glory before time began. 8 None of the rulers of this age understood it, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.
2 Corinthians 2:10 10 these are the things God has revealed to us by his Spirit.
Ephesians 1:7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace 8 that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, 9 he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ,
About this Christ Ahnsahnghong taught in his book, The Mystery of God and the Spring of the Water of Life.
Unless we become one body with Jesus through the Holy Supper of the new covenant, we cannot know His mysteries. If we become one body with Jesus, His Spirit will be in us and we will come to know the deep things [mysteries] of God. (p. 66)
How clear it is!! Now God is inviting all the peoples of the world to come to God and keep the Passover and then God will lavish on them the Spirit of wisdom and understanding so that they may know the mystery of God, Christ. Therefore, God is teaching us if we think we are wise, now we must become foolish to get the wisdom of God. We should get rid of the worldly wisdom and fill ourselves with the wisdom of God because the foolishness of God is wiser than the wisdom of the world. When we become wise with the wisdom of God, we can know Christ.
Ephesians 1:17 I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better.
We should cleanse our body of the temple through the Passover so that God’s Spirit can dwell in us to give us wisdom and understanding to know Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother New Jerusalem. Give thanks to God Elohim!
