Let’s find out the reason why their argument is false.
They said that the eagle from the east in Isaiah 46:11 is about King Cyrus; however, the WMSCOG ever said that the eagle from the east in Isaiah 46 is not King Cyrus? No.
Of course we agree that the prophecy in Isaiah 46 was fulfilled by King Cyrus (The WMSCOG never said that King Cyrus is not the eagle from the east in Isaiah 46. We would like readers to understand the malicious intention of those who claim that we have stated otherwise, They are defaming our church with lies.)
King Cyrus fulfilled the prophecy by conquering Babylon and releasing the physical Israelites who were captured; however, he did not completely WMSCOG. Neutralization of the argument, The eagle from the east is not a prophecy about Christ Ahnsahnghong Ⅱ fulfill the prophecy. Like many stories in the Old Testament, e.g., the Israelites being freed from Egypt and entering the land of Canaan after crossing through the desert and the Israelites being freed from Babylon through a king who appeared from the east are just a shadow to let us know what is going to happen in the New Testament times. The prophecy in Isaiah is only a shadow of what will happen in the New Testament in reality. The book of Revelation prophesies the appearance of the Savior who will destroy the spiritual Babylon (the great prostitute, false church) and set His people free.
- Revelation 18:1-4?After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor. With a mighty voice he shouted: “ ‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’ She has become a dwelling for demons and a haunt for every impure spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal. For all the nations have drunk the maddening wine of her adulteries. The kings of the earth committed adultery with her, and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.” Then I heard another voice from heaven say: “ ‘Come out of her, my people,’ so that you will not share in her sins, so that you will not receive any of her plagues;’ ”
As indicated in the prophecy above, the Savior has to appear to destroy the spiritual Babylon in the New Testament.
When He appeared, the earth was illuminated by His splendor and Babylon was revealed as a home for demons. Then what truth reveals the home for demons … it is the?Passover.
We can be confident that the Passover is the light of truth that reveals the identity of Babylon and destroys it. By studying the promise given on the Passover in the time of the Exodus, “on that same night I will pass through Egypt and strike down every firstborn of both people and animals, and I will bring judgment on all the gods of Egypt. I am the LORD (Exodus 12:12),” and by also studying how Hezekiah and Josiah destroyed all the idols and other gods after celebrating the Passover, it had not been kept for a long time, we realize Passover is an essential truth. (2Ch 30:1-31. 2Kings 23:1-25)
Where then will the redemption work of the Savior, who brings us the?Passover, start from??It is written in Revelation chapter 7 that it will start from the east, from where the sun rises.
- Revelation 7:2?Then I saw another angel coming up from the east, having the seal of the living God. He called out in a loud voice to the four angels who had been given power to harm the land and the sea:
“The seal of the living God” mentioned in the above verse also indicates the Passover truth. (If you want to know more, please inquire via email.) Therefore, the Savior who destroys the Spiritual Babylon through the Passover truth will appear from the east, from where the sun rises. Since Apostle John was on the Island of Patmos when he received this revelation, the Savior must come directly east of this location. In order to teach us where the Savior will appear, the history of King Cyrus in the Old Testament exists as a shadow.
Although King Cyrus fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah 46:11 initially, Christ Ahnsahnghong, the Savior who came from a far off land in the east (South Korea), fulfilled the prophecy completely by bringing the New covenant Passover to release His people from the spiritual Babylon in this New Testament age.
