In these days, various disasters are occurring around the world. Climate change, nuclear accidents, earthquakes, tsunami, super hurricanes, tornadoes… These words are no longer strange to us now. Then, where can we go to escape such disasters? The Bible teaches that we ought to flee to Zion.
Raise the signal to go to Zion! Flee for safety without delay…(Jeremiah 4:6)
Then, where is Zion?Do you think it’s a natural Zion in Palestine? No. It’s the place God’s appointed feasts are observed.
Look upon Zion, the city of our festivals (the city of our appointed feasts – English Standard Version>; a place of holy festivals – New Living Translation)… (Isaiah 33:20)
Why can we be protected from disasters when we go to Zion? It’s because God Almighty resides in Zion.
There [in Zion] the LORD will be our Mighty One… (Isaiah 33:21)
For the LORD has chosen Zion, he has desired it for his dwelling… (Psalms 132:13)
Besides, God promised that the sins of those who remain in Zion will be forgiven.
No one living in Zion will say, “I am ill”; and the sins of those who dwell there will be forgiven (Isaiah 33:24)
The features and importance of Zion:
- God’s appointed feasts are kept in Zion;
- God dwells in Zion;
- Those who dwell in Zion will have the forgiveness of sins.
Then, what are God’s feasts observed in Zion? Do you think they are Sunday service, Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving Day…? Unfortunately, they are just man-made rules and are not God’s feasts. Sunday is a day for celebrating sun-god, and Christmas is the birthday of a pagan god or sun-god. God’s feasts include the Sabbath and seven kinds of feasts of three times such as the Passover. God will be with those who keep the appointed feasts of God such as the Passover of the New Covenant. And the sins of those will keep God’s feasts in Zion will be forgiven.
The prophet Isaiah also wrote that you would see Jerusalem in Zion.
Look upon Zion, the city of our festivals; your eyes will see Jerusalem, a peaceful abode… (Isaiah 33:20)
If you keep God’s feasts and remain in Zion, you can know the secret of Jerusalem. Today, only the World Mission Society Church of God observes the appointed feasts of God such as the Sabbath and the Passover. That is to say, the World Mission Society Church of God is Zion where God’s feasts are celebrated. If you come to the World Mission Society Church of God, you will realize the secret of Jerusalem.
According to the prophecy of the Bible, Christ Ahnsahnghong came from Zion (Romans 11:26) and restored God’s feasts which had disappeared during the Dark Ages. Christ Ahnsahnghong also unveiled the secret of Jerusalem.
Do you want to have the forgiveness of sins and to enter the kingdom of heaven? If then, please knock at the door of the World Mission Society Church of God without delay and learn about the Savior who has already come to Zion for our salvation.
In the last days … “… He [God] will teach us his ways…” The law will go out from Zion [a place of holy festivals], the word of the LORD from Jerusalem (Micah 4:1-2)
