The Adequate Understanding of the End of the World in 2012

4-11

The slanderers mislead people to believe that the Church of God insists the end of the world in 2012. They falsely claim that the Church of God insists the end of the world in 2012 by quoting the passage “2012 becomes the end day” from page15 of the book titled “The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep” written by Christ Ahnsahnghong:

“According to the prophecy, one day is to be interpreted as one year.(Eze 4:6, Nu 14:34) Therefore, if we add 168years to the A.D. 1844 when Jesus entered the Most Holy Place in heaven, the A.D. 2012 becomes the end of the world.”

Among the sentences above, the slanderers extract only a part which is ‘The end of the world is the year 2012’, falsely saying that the Church of God claims the Time-Limited Eschatology of the year 2012.

 

 

 

1. Knowing the end date has nothing to do with salvation

The slanderers interpret the book entirely differently from the intent of the author. Christ Ahnsahnghong made clear the purpose of “The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep” in its Preface:

Among the Preface of “The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep”

The core content of this book is that salvation is not given according to whether to know the date of the end or not, but given to people who know the truth of the new covenant and obey it. Those who neither believe in the truth nor obey it, only caring about the date, will be finally fallen away from the truth and will be going outside the church before that day comes, being tempted by Satan consequently. But those who only believe in the truth of the new covenant and obey it, not caring about the date, will be saved regardless of whether that date is proved true or not.

 

The wish of God’s people, who believe in God faithfully, is to be saved and go to heaven. Christ Ahnsahnghong clearly said that those who know and follow the truth of the New Covenant will be saved. Did He say that those who count the date without believing in the truth would be saved? No, not at all. Christ Ahnsahnghong must be God because He already foretold that there would appear people (slanderers) who argue the date without believing in the truth of the New Covenant. Those who dispute the date will never be blessed with God’s salvation.

Christ Ahnsahnghong stressed several times in the book that we must not count the date.

‘The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep’ page 7

Salvation doesn’t depend on whether you know the date or not, but whether or not you take the new covenant of Jesus matters. Therefore, we shouldn’t think of if the date is correct or not. Rather, we had better study the bible with an earnest heart to find out if the truth we have is true or false.

 

‘The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep’ page 27

Therefore, our salvation doesn’t depend on whether to know the date or the time, but only depends on whether to keep the covenant of life, the new covenant of the Passover.

 

 

 

2. It’s about the completion of the Heavenly Temple

Christ Ahnsahnghong has never written that the year 2012 is the end of the world. They quote only part of the book and lead people to misunderstand that the Church of God is a doomsday church.

Christ Ahnsahnghong obviously did not say that 2012 is the end of the world. But He wrote that the Heavenly Temple would be complete in 2012.

‘The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep’ page 15

From the next day of receiving the ten commandments, the construction of the Temple was started, and the Temple was complete in 168days. Since the fulfillment of this prophecy was to be done by Jesus, on the day of Atonement on July 10th A.D. 1844 according to the sacred calendar, Jesus as well went into the Most High Place in heaven. From that time on, it’s shown that the construction of the Heavenly Temple was to be started, and in 168years, the Heavenly Temple is to be complete. According to the prophecy, one day is to be interpreted as one year. (Eze 4:6, Nu 14:34) Therefore, if we add 168years to the A.D. 1844 when Jesus entered the Most Holy Place in heaven, the A.D. 2012 becomes the end of the world (the final day of the construction of the Heavenly Temple). But we cannot help but think of the words that for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.

 

What was started in 1844? It’s written that the construction of the Temple started in 1844. Then, what did He say about the year 2012? He wrote that the Temple would be complete in 2012.

The slanderers falsely interpret the passage “2012 becomes the end day” as “2012 is the end of the world.” Contrary to their argument, the passage “2012 becomes the end day means that “2012 is the end day of the completion of the Heavenly Temple.”

If you read the book from the beginning, you can easily understand it. However, the slanderers criticize the Church of God by quoting only part of the book and ignoring the previous part.

 

 

 

3. The main point of “The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep”

It’s not allowed to misunderstand the will of God by misinterpreting this book. Like the prophecy of the prophet Isaiah: “Be ever hearing, but never understanding; be ever seeing, but never perceiving”, those who insist such a false claim are just telling windy words without realizing the Word of God.

The reason we believe in God is not because the end is near. But God desires we repent and be saved like the prophecy of Jonah: it’s God will. We need to understand the will of God with discretion. This book is focused on “repentance” and “salvation.” If you look at this book differently, you cannot understand it correctly.

 

 

 

4. The standpoint of the World Mission Society Church of God

Today we are seeing many disasters. The reality is that many people are living with fear due to earthquakes, wars, racial disputes, famines, unusual weather phenomena, etc. The Church of God preaches the Passover of the New Covenant to inspire mankind with the wish of salvation in this age when disasters are rampant. And the Church preaches the New Covenant to make people live a bright and hopeful future in the dreadful and gloomy future. Like the Word of Christ Ahnsahnghong, the members of the Church of God, who believe in and follow the truth of the New Covenant, are planning a hopeful future.

  1. Thanks for remind me of the will of Christ Ahnsahnghong. He wanted us to repent and get salvation through the New Covenant that he had established. Amen!!!

    • Amen! Lots of ppl misunderstand that wmscog claimed the End of the World in 2012, However, it have not been told within the church. Like intention of Christ Ahnsahnghong written in the preface of the truth book (“The bridegroom was a long time in coming, and they all became drowsy and fell asleep”), Heavenly Mother also often says that whether or not we know the day of the End of the World, is not so important and instead, it is more important for us to fully repent and reinforce our faith within the truth of the New Covenant.
      How can we fathom the love of Elohim God ? Father Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly mother are working so hard even at this moment to keep us alert and self-controlled and ready to receive the day of our salvation.
      All praise, thanks and glory be to Elohim God!

    • Yes, and it’s the reason why we have to keep preaching the New Covenant Passover to lead more people to salvation.

  2. Focusing on the end of time is someone who do not care about salvation. The reason why we believe in God is because we want to repent our sins and to change into a beautiful form, resembling God. It is unnecessary for us to think of the date. We all want to change and save every person on this earth.

  3. Ya understand all that…but sometimes people who have been in the church a long time does get tired and long to go back to our hometown….is tat wrong? Staying on this earth is pointless as its not a happy place…full of disasters and suffering…For once i just like to see something happen like a sign for us to go back to Heaven thats all…..

    • Even the Disciples got tired Mathew26:40, and even the ones who wandered in the desert got restless. Thank Father and Mother they were our example of what we should not do. Let us realize that signs are happening all over the world at this very moment Brothers and Sisters. Kings and Queens are coming to worship Jerusalem Mother as prophecy has foretold. I am in the farthest West and I have been preached to, yet another prophecy that our time is near. Scientist are more and more telling of disasters in a frequency that rivals any since human kind, yet another sign God Elohim has given us. Brothers let us thank Father and Mother even more for giving us a few more hours to prepare even more oil of faith and change even quicker. Mothers words are even more truth than any physical sign can ever convince. Mother says Father is so near, any moment. Let us have unwavering faith and believe.

      God Bless You!
      Love Always,
      A Son of Elohim

  4. We do not know the time of the coming of kingdom of heaven.Only God know the time.
    We are to be saved is impossible without change our character.
    God waiting for us to change our character to God’s likeness.
    They only interface the Church of God not to be saved through false claim.

  5. Amen. We have the only and perfect truth. Everyone especially here in the United States has such a close and western mindset. They try to understand the whole picture of anything with just 1% of the original source. We have to pray bug time so that their minds get opened up, and so Father and Mother can break their concepts.

  6. Kim Jong Kelle says:

    this wave site belong to WMSCOG. Now a days WMSCOG is creating many website stating WMSCOG is true. If Ang Shang Hong wrote about complet of heavenly jerusalem in 2012 then why WMSCOG taught us about 2012 in end, yes were taught by paster not only me but all over the world. my question is why ?????????????????? I am being crazy. is all the paster of WMSCOG is fake accept Ang Shang Hong I am still a Member. after fail prediction of 1988 & 2012, now they are saying we will go heaven with heavenly mother (Zang Gil Jha). again I have a headache, if this time we will not go heaven with mother then see what will happen this is a chellange many will die blood will flow every where. I think Pastor never taught their own but they taught what came from mother. please god save me, this thing wouln’t happen if they don’t teach about 1988 & 2012. I asked a question to a decon in zion 144000 believer is found heavenly jerusalem temple is finished then why are we waiting for then they answer now last prophesy is only left that we will go heaven with mother alive, no physically death. what will happen if mother goes alone? what will be our faith? many question arise to me. god bless you

    • The only way to know the truth is to believe the Bible. Christ Ahnsanhghong revealed his identity through the words of the bible. It is written “only the Root of David was able to open the scroll”(Rev 5:1-5) anyone who studies the bible knows that the scroll is the scripture. And it is written that the Root of David is Jesus himself (Rev 22:16) So look at the facts. In Matt 12:39-41 it is written that the wicked and adulterous generation would receive the sign of the prophet Jonah. Those are the words of Jesus himself. Then who is the only one who has ever explained the meaning of the prophet Jonah? It was only Christ Ahnsahnghong. No other church has ever explained it. Christ Ahnsahnghong never said the world would end in 1988. In the book The Bride Groom is long time in coming and they all became drowsy and fell asleep, he clearly said “when people ask me if I believe the world will end in 1988, my answer to them is NO.” Also he clearly said the world will not end in 2012. (2Peter 3:9) “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” So the fact that it is now 2013 and we are still here validates the words of the Bible. God is patient w/us giving us the time needed to repent. In the bible there are many events in which God prolonged destruction because He wanted the people to repent. So we should not focus on the time or date but focus on the fact that we need to fix ourselves so we can enter heaven.

    • I understand perfectly how you feel, not because Pastors ever taught 2012 would be the end (though we members misunderstood as such – and I saw members being rebuked for saying the end would be 2012) but because there is such much confusion being created out there. I come to understand more about the early church through this. Remeber that they preached (even Jesus) to repent for the kingdom of God was near? It has been almost 2000 years but Jesus never lied. Even the apostels beleved at some point they were part of the 144,000 because Paul mentioned he would be caught up in the air alive. But, please listen to Father’s words .”The core content of this book is not that salvation is not given according to wether we know the date of the end or not, but given to people who know the truth of the new covenant and obey it.” I believe you are korean, and it sounds you have been in the truth for a while? for many years now, Pastors have reminded us of such message from Father, please focus on the HOW not the WHEN. God bless you ^^

    • WeLoveElohimGod says:

      Humble yourself and you will understand everything.. :)) God bless you po..

  7. Kimjongkelle, We all know about the teachings of 2012, We all know that Father left us the book to warn us of people only look to a certain date. We should be careful not to concentrate on a date but to believe in the New Covenant that Father and Mother taught us. I’m having some trouble understanding you concerns can you write a bit more and tell us exactly what is bothering you?

  8. Sister Brynn says:

    Whether the world ends this year, next year, in 50 years, or after I die, I will stay in the World Mission Society Church of God because it is the only place on earth that gives me true joy and hope, it is the spiritual Jerusalem temple, it is our heavenly Mother. It is where I can do the will of God Almighty. What a blessing and an honor… We are eternal royalty! The gospel mission is so amazing, it is so merciful that our Father Ahnsahnghong has delayed His coming to give us a chance to inherit even more blessings and preach the gospel more fervently.

    It is also clear that Christ Ahnsahnghong’s will to fulfill the prophecy of “I will do this swiftly” was to make the disciples think that the end was coming before 2012 by mentioning the part about the days being shortened for the sake of the elect. If you know that the end could come at any moment, that is the only way that we lazy human beings could get our act together and live like we should. I want to give all thanks, praises, glory, and honor to God the Father Christ Ahnsahnghong and heavenly Mother new Jerusalem!

  9. In the Bible, No one knows the day and the date
    Only God knows
    I wanna ask ppl?
    If you know the time, what will you do?
    Buy some food? or believe in true God, Second coming Jesus?
    we’ve heard the word ” the end in 2012″ via media, Maya
    Even ppl heard the time, ppl never prepared their salvation from their words
    As you know, the time passed by
    Their word was wrong
    It means no matter the time and the date

  10. Many slanders criticize and insist WMSCOG is heresy without any reasons and grounds.
    Especially, ‘eschatology’ is one of their favorite words.
    We, as a human who has intelligence, should not be swayed, hearing groundless rumor.
    If you believe God, you need to follow and believe only Bible.

  11. Do U also think so?
    If their insistence is true, there should not exist anyone in WMSCOG if they are true believers!
    However, as U can find out all over the world, the members of WMSCOG are increasing more radidly!
    They are now only trying to slander WMSCOG, distorting the truth!

  12. Wow. Trully only God can bring to light what has been hidden in darkness. Where is there to go now we know that every where except the wmscog follows after idols and worship of unknown gods. Oh gosh I am more certain now reading these messages against this church that there is no where else to go and that Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother have the true words of eternal life. God bless you all.

  13. Brothers and sisters. We r now in 2013. The temple was complete in 2012 but we r given more than enough time to preach and bring more materials. Just like when moses told the isrealites that they already had more than enough materials for the temple. The bible says that they were restrained from bringing anymore materials to construct the already complete temple. Father and Mother have granted us a grace period so please lets not fall asleep but prepare the oil of faith, becuase the bridegroom is a long time in coming.

  14. Amen. Instead of grumbling why the end hasn’t come, we should use this day given by Mother to save even one more souls.
    Recently I saw so many amazing things. So many sisters who missed 1st Passover are coming back to Zion and those who were preached to long time ago are coming to Zion..
    Surely Mother is merciful God who is waiting for us all to come back then Zion.
    See you all soon!

  15. Deciding... says:

    Yes, I can see clearly that he said (completion of the heavenly temple)… in parentheses. But before that, he also did say end of the world. If the argument is reaching the intended “means to an end” as to why he ultimatley said this, well, that can certainly be debated all month long. However, if we are insisting he did not say this is the end of the world, we have totally lost our heads and are blind as bats for refusing to see he actually used the words “end of the world”. I am a member too, but can not, will not sit here and ignore that these words were used. —– A.D. 2012 becomes the end of the world (the final day of the construction of the heavenly temple)——– These two points are not able to contradict each other, because God cannot contradict God. Therefore, they are synonymous. Personally, I could care less that the world didn’t end. I know about the bridegroom coming late. But what I do care about is watching people deny that this was taught by the Pastors. I was taught this years ago, and I took notes and remember it clear as day. But when it caused problems in the church, they stopped teaching it, and began to rebuke people for spreading it after that. May God judge me, be it ever so severely, if these words of mine are lies. About something as important as this, i would never lie. Niether should any of my brothers or sisters. Be truthful always, and I hope to iron this out and see you all very soon! God Bless You!

  16. Bible says no one knows when is the end time except God.
    God allows us another chance to repent our sin so we could go back to heaven without fail.
    Since the Spirit and the Bride give us the water of life and salvation, we should be the one who should follow the word of God without adding or taking away even a single word.

    • No matter how they slander, world mission society church of God will follow Elohim God to the end. Because Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother is surely our saviors in this holy Spirit age.

  17. numerous beehive says:

    Already, 2013!
    However, World Mission Society Church of God is preaching the gospel in the same way.
    They are just busy slandering WMSCOG!

  18. jerusalem144000 says:

    Still, in 2013, World Mission Society Church of God is preaching the GOOD NEWS that Elohim God, Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother, will save U as long as U receive the New Covenant.
    This fact clearly shows that they are enticing people to keep away from World Mission Society Church of God!

  19. Christ Ahnsahnghong has already said that salvation doesn’t depend on whether we know the date or not but whether or not we take the new covenant of Jesus’ matters. and He said also that we shouldn’t think of the date correct or not. Rather, we had better study the Bible with an honest heart to find out if the truth we have is true or false.
    We believe in Christ Ahnsahnghong, He is surly our God the Father who leads us to the heaven. Therefore, i will only keep the new covenant to the end as His teaching.

  20. Only God know when will be the last judgement day.
    Living in gospel, all we need to do is to try be better form as true children of God so that
    all of us could enter the kingdom of heaven without fail.

  21. whereislove says:

    We all should believe what God has promised us for salvation through the Bible.
    Thinking of the end time only will bring about the destruction because that is what the Bible warns to us.

  22. What is important? We all should listen carefully what God says for our salvation through the Bible.
    Thinking of the end time only would bring about the destruction because the Bible warns us so.

  23. jerusalem144000 says:

    Although we know the time of salvation exactly, what will happen when we do not receive the Savior???
    If U are prepared, U’ll be saved at any times!!

  24. When Jesus came he said “Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is near”. At the time did the end come? NO! Is he still Christ? YES!

    Likewise, even if Father did say “2012 is the end”, did the end come? NO! Does that keep him from being the Christ? NO! Is he still the Christ? YES!

    Keep in mind that God is also a rock that makes men fall. Father’s last words were “Everything will be ok if you listen to whatever Mother said.” By this Father is clearly telling us to follow instructions from Mother because She is Mighty God.

    Psalms 115:3 –

    Our God is in heaven;
    he does whatever pleases him.

  25. Christ Ahnsahnghong, who is a founder of World Mission Society Church of God[WMSCOG] as second coming christ, said that our salvation depends on keeping the new covenant, Passover. However, Slanders take away the way to salvation and insist only the disasters. Therefore, before accepting insist, we must examine all things from the bible, Passover!

  26. When we obey the words of God and meet the Spirit and the Bride ,we can receive the salvation at the judgement day.
    It’s up to our faith to receive the salvation, not the time or date. Even though Someone who can never believe in God the Father, Christ Ahnshanghong and God the Mother has disturbed the WMSCOG, the time when the Jerusalem Temple will be completed is coming soon unconsciously. But those who accept the Christ Ahnshanghong and God the Mother as the spirit and the Bride, the savior of this age, can prepare to enter the kingdom of heaven by doing the will of God whenever the time comes.

  27. The time is not important for our salvation,first in fath is we must fix correctly according to will of God ourselves.
    Becaus we were againsted words of God in heaven,it’s our sins.

  28. It is evident the slanders who do not believe in Heavenly Father and Mother will find any excuse to deny the truth. I personally didn’t understand fully about the prophecy of completion of the Jerusalem Temple. However, the prophecy was explained to me through the bible and Father’s books. I truly from my heart thank God for given us more time to repent and be worthy of God’s love and grace. Father and Mother has given us time to find the truth children of God who are still lost in the dark world seeking salvation. Salvation does not depend on a date but appreciating Gods endless sacrifice and being faithful until the end. All the slanders want to falsely accuse the WMSCOG, but it is the truth such as Sabbath, Passover and the most beautiful mystery our Heavenly Mother that will set us free from sin. Salvation does not depend on a date how foolish to think that way.

  29. I have been in the World Mission Society Church of God and nevwr heard about such claim. Don’t need to listen to the ones who do not follow any of the teachings of Christ. Just stick on the facts and the teachings of Christ and you won’t be tempted or deceived by the opposers’ claims.

  30. How could mere person know about the end time?
    Only God knows our future and from the disasters, only He could give us the salvation.
    The more important thing is to be changed in the will of God so that we could all enter the kingdom of heaven without fail.

  31. It is such a sensitive problem that they insist the meaningless argument.
    The Bible testifies that no one knows when will be the end time except God.

  32. The time is not important.
    The most important thing is if we will be saved or not.
    We must exert ourselves to be saved.

  33. Our Heavenly Father Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother New Jerusalem are true Almighty Gods.
    They knew false members would look at the date and complain about it then leave Zion, truly our Father and Mother’s words eternal and perfect. Let’s people know the truth of our Heveanly Father and Mother !!

  34. i am realy thankfull to heavenly Father Christ Ahnsahnghong for preparing all the waited truth for my salvation,
    what amazes me is that slanders as they are do not show the way to eternal life to support their claim, and all they remains teachings of man which oroces how hypocrite they are.
    Heavenly Mother i Thank you so much for recealing all this for my salvation

  35. last day… and coming day… These are really nothing for our salvation… We just only do our best to keep God’s commands…

  36. jerusalemwmscog says:

    Whatever people say, the Bible says, “The salvation will be given by Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother!”

  37. If U really want, U can be blessed fro Heavenly Parents, Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother!
    Of course, in World Mission Society Church of God!

  38. Now is the time to receive God the Mother for eternal salvation!
    Come to the World Mission Society Church of God, in a hurry!

  39. Right! Truly, we can be saved in Elohim God, Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother!
    It depends on Ur decision!

  40. When we remain in Christ Ahnsahnghong and God the Mother, we will go there!

  41. Amen!!
    Thank you, heavenly father & mother.

  42. dessirie calaunan says:

    amazing!!:) now i understand.. thanks to Father and Mother for great understanding:)

  43. Thanks to Father and Mother, this article is so clear! Father makes it so easy to understand. If you focus only on the date, you cannot be saved. I don’t think it can get any clearer than that. Those who only focus on the day and time are only fulfilling God’s prophecy. Instead of focusing on the time, Father said if you just earnestly study the Bible then you can be saved. How amazing? God’s mercy and love is unconditional. I truly hope that the people who want to know the truth hear God’s voice soon and so be saved.

  44. Christ Ahnsahnghong clearly said that what is important for salvation is not knowing the date, but following and obeying the truth. Under God’s grace, I would like to follow the truth of the new covenant until the end. Thanks to Father and Mother.

  45. from the title itself.. How can we say that the bridegroom will be long time in coming there is no appointed time of his coming?

    it is prophesied that 2012 is the appointed time but the long time in coming means we do not when will the bridegroom will come. .

  46. Prabhat Maharjan says:

    Thank you for the information. I came to know the will of Christ. He wants us to repent but not to count the days of end. I want to wait Christ Ahnsahnghong as a wise five virgins.
