Where are we from? Where are we going after we die? Though many philosophers, theologians and scientists have tried to find the answers to these questions for centuries, no one could even suggest a theory without contradicting themselves.
The Bible teaches that the man consists of a body and a soul, and the latter returns to haven upon death.
the LORD God formed the man from the dust [body] of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life [soul], and the man became a living being. (Genesis 2:7)
and the dust [body] returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit [soul] returns to God who gave it. (Ecclesiastes 12:7)
The word “return” means “to go back back to a former place” or “to turn back.” Therefore, we can understand that we had been with God in heaven before we came to the earth.
Then, why did we leave heaven filled with happiness and joy, and come to this painful earth? Jesus let us know that we we expelled from heaven because we committed grave sins.
For the Son of Man [Jesus] came to seek and to save what was lost. (Luke 19:10)
… For I [Jesus] have not come to call [seek] the righteous, but sinners. (Matthew 9:13)
Jesus came to this earth to seek and save what was lost from heaven. And Jesus said He came to call (or seek) sinners. This mean that we had been angels and always joyful in heaven (Job 38:7), but we were expelled from there because of sins.
How grave was our sin? The Apostle Paul wrote, “For the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23). In other words, all people on earth are spiritual sinners or death row prisoners.
Then, is there any way to return to heaven again? From the short YouTube above, you can understand that we can return to heaven through the Passover of the New Covenant whose bread and wine represents the body and blood of Jesus.
Jesus established the Passover of the New Covenant for the forgiveness of sins.
So the disciples did as Jesus had directed them and prepared the Passover… While they were eating, Jesus took bread … saying, “Take and eat; this [the Passover bread] is my body.” … This [the Passover wine] is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. (Matthew 26:19-26)
Jesus established the New Covenant Passover for our salvation. However, the Passover completely disappeared from the earth in AD 325. For more than 1,600 years, no one could keep the Passover of life. Christ Ahnsahnghong restored the Passover and allowed us the forgiveness of sins according to the prophecy of the Bible. Who can grant the forgiveness of sins? Only God can. So Christ Ahnsahnghong exposed the secret of the forgiveness of sins and brought us the Passover for our salvation.
so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many people; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him. (Hebrews 9:28)
