Why did Christ Ahnsahnghong die?
So if Christ Ahnsahnghong is the Second Coming of Christ, why did He die?
One of the questions people ask the most is: Why did Christ Ahnsahnghong die if He is Second Coming Christ? And the answer is very simple; Christ Ahnsahnghong had to pass away in order to fulfill several Bible prophecies.
However, today I am going to discuss and explain the prophecy of the Last Adam for the reader to understand.
The Last Adam
Every Christian knows the story of Adam and Eve. But what many Christians do not understand is that the story of Adam and Eve is not just a story, but also a prophecy.
1 Corinthians 15:45-47 – So it is written: “The first man Adam became a living being”; the last Adam, a life-giving spirit. The spiritual did not come first, but the natural, and after that the spiritual. The first man was of the dust of the earth, the second man from heaven. –NIV—
1 Corinthians 15:47 – Adam, the first man, was made from the dust of the earth, while Christ, the second man, came from heaven –NLT—
In the verse above we can see that in addition to the Adam who appears in the Garden of Eden, there is also another Adam, referred to as the Last Adam who comes from Heaven to give us life. Christ in the Bible is referred to as the Last Adam, or the one who comes in the pattern of Adam (Romans 5:14).
But why does the Bible refer to Christ as the Last Adam?
To help us understand the answer to this question, let me give you an analogy. If I tell you that I have a friend who is the Last Michael Jordan, which sport would you think my friend is good at? The answer is basketball. Now the reason people would understand that my friend is good at basketball – even though I didn’t mention it—is because people know who Michael Jordan is, and they know he is one of the greatest basketball players to ever live.
In the same way, when the Bible refers to Christ as the Last Adam, it’s because there is something we can learn about Christ through studying about Adam. But the only thing the Bible mentions about the Last Adam, is that He comes to give us life. That means that if we find out how the first Adam gave life, then we can know how the Last Adam is going to give us life.
How did Adam give life?
In the Garden of Eden, after God created Adam and all the animals, God said that it was not good for the man to be alone and that God was going to make a suitable helper for him. (Genesis 2:18) As a suitable helper for Adam, God creates a woman. (Genesis 2:22) Then, in what could the woman give suitable help to the man, that in the eyes of God, the man could not do alone?
Genesis 3:20 – Adam named his wife Eve, because she would become the mother of all the living.
The one thing Adam could not do alone, and needed Eve for, was to give life. According to the scriptures, Christ comes as the Last Adam, which means He will follow this pattern. Then if Christ comes as the Last Adam to give us life, He must give it to us the same way that Adam gave life – through Eve–.
The Last Adam and the Last Eve.
The Bible shows that the Last Adam who appeared 2,000 years ago, will come again in the last days. However, this time, He doesn’t come alone.
Revelation 19:7 – Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.
As we can see here, the Lamb, who is Christ (John1:29) and also the Last Adam who appeared 2,000 years ago, comes again. And this time, He comes with His bride. Then who is the bride of the Lamb? It is the Heavenly Jerusalem (Revelation 21:9-19), and according to the book of Galatians, the Heavenly Jerusalem is our Mother! (Galatians 4:26).
The Last Adam and the Last Eve appear in the last days as the Spirit and the Bride. (Revelation 22:17)
When does Eve appear?
According to the prophecy of Christ coming in the pattern of Adam; Eve must appear after Adam falls into a deep sleep.
Genesis 2:21-22 – So the Lord caused the man to fall into a deep sleep; and while he was sleeping, he took one of the man’s ribs… Then the LORD God made a woman from the rib he had taken out of the man.
In the same way, Christ who comes as the Last Adam, must reveal to us the Last Eve after falling into a deep sleep. Then what does “sleep” represent in the Bible?
John 11:11-14 – After he had said this, he went on to tell them, “Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him up.” His disciples replied, “Lord, if he sleeps, he will get better.” Jesus had been speaking of his death, but his disciples thought he meant natural sleep.
In the Bible, “sleep” means death, therefore, our Father Christ Ahnsahnghong revealed to us our Heavenly Mother right before He passed away. If Adam doesn’t go into a deep sleep, can Eve appear? No!
In the same way, in order to fulfill Bible prophecy, our Father Christ Ahnsahnghong had to pass away as the Last Adam, in order to reveal to us our Heavenly Mother, the one who has come as the “Mother of all the living”.
