[False Claim of NCPCOG]
In the book Christ Ahnsahnghong wrote, “Interpretation on the New Jerusalem and the Bride, and on Women’s Veil” it is written that the heavenly Jerusalem is the 144,000 saints. This proves that Christ Ahnsahnghong denied the existence of Heavenly Mother.
1. It is wrong to quote the book, “Interpretation on the New Jerusalem and the Bride, and on Women’s Veil”
For more explanation, please refer to “ Christ Ahnsahnghong Said That Heavenly Mother Does Not Exist (Misusing Father’s Book).”
2. Do the 144,000 saints come down from heaven?
Father said that the 144,000 saints are those who will be taken up to heaven alive. In other words, while living the life of faith on the earth, the 144,000 saints will be suddenly changed on the Judgment Day without dying and receive God in the air as the last saints(1 Th 4:17).
|“The Law of Moses and the Law of Christ,” Ch. 8 Now, the number of the spiritual Israelites, the so-called Christians all over the world, is like the sand by the sea. However, the number of the chosen, the children of promise who will be changed to enter alive into heaven, is only 144,000 (Rev 7:2-4).|
Therefore, if the heavenly Jerusalem stands for the 144,000 saints, it cannot be said that they come down from heaven. Rather, it must be said that they go up to heaven. However, the Bible testifies that the new Jerusalem comes down from heaven. Therefore, their insistence is wrong.
3. The reason Father said that the new Jerusalem is the 144,000 saints
Why did Father say that the new Jerusalem city stands for the 144,000? It’s because it was not the right time to testify about Heavenly Mother. Even though there was another Savior who was to come in the name of Jesus and His new name, the Bible said in the age of God the Father that only Jehovah was the Savior (Isa 43:11); and in the prophecies about the last days, the Bible prophesied that people would be saved in the name of Jehovah, even though Jehovah was not the name of the Savior in the last days (Joel 2:32; Mal 4:2). All the words and the prophecies were expressed within the limitations of the truth granted in the age of God the Father.
It was the same with the situation before Father testified to Heavenly Mother. However, even when Father did not completely reveal the truth about Heavenly Mother, He testified that the 144,000 saints themselves are not the heavenly new Jerusalem. Just as a temple was named after its builder like Solomon Temple, it becomes the New Jerusalem’s Temple. Doesn’t it mean that the construction of the heavenly new Jerusalem temple will be completed by Heavenly Mother who is the new Jerusalem?
|“The Message to the Church in Laodicea” (1960), Ch. 15 When the 144,000 living saints are all found, the heavenly Jerusalem Temple is completed. I am not saying that the 144,000 saints themselves are the temple. In the past, a temple was named after the name of its builder: Solomon Temple, Zerubbabel Temple, Nehemiah Temple, Herod Temple. Like this, by gathering the 144,000 living saints, the New Jerusalem Temple is completed.|
