Zion is an important place in the Bible. However, most Christians do not know exactly where Zion is. There are two kinds of Zions in the Bible: the natural Zion, which was built by King David, and the spiritual Zion, which was established Jesus. The natural Zion is located in the area of Palestine. But the spiritual Zion is where God’s feasts are observed. Just as King David built the natural Zion, so the spiritual David or Jesus established the spiritual Zion with God’s feasts.

Look upon Zion, the city of our festivals [the city of our appointed feasts: ESV]… (Isaiah 33:20)

Did Jesus really establish Zion with feasts? Yes, He did. He established Zion with the feasts of the New Covenant such as the Sabbath day, the Passover, the Feasts of Tabernacles and the Day of Pentecost.

In the same way, after the supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup [the Passover wine] is the new covenant in my blood, which is poured out for you. (Luke 22:20)

He [Jesus Christ] went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom.(Luke 4:16)

Why did Jesus establish Zion? It’s because we can have the forgiveness of sin in Zion.

Look upon Zion, the city of our festivals [a place of holy festivals: NLT]; your eyes will see Jerusalem, a peaceful abode, a tent that will not be moved; its stakes will never be pulled up, nor any of its ropes broken. There the LORD will be our Mighty One. It will be like a place of broad rivers and streams. No galley with oars will ride them, no mighty ship will sail them… No one living in Zion will say, “I am ill”; and the sins of those who dwell there [in Zion] will be forgiven. (Isaiah 33:20-24)

However, the feasts of the New Covenant established by Jesus disappeared during the Dark Ages. According to the prophecy of the prophet Daniel, all feasts of God were destroyed.

He will speak against the Most High [God] and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws [religious laws and festivals: Good News Bible]. (Daniel 7:25)

Since Zion is where God’s feasts are observed, the fact that the feasts of the New Covenant disappeared means that Zion was ruined (Isaiah 51:3.) Therefore, it’s prophesied that Zion would be restored in the last days. The prophet Micah prophesied that many nations would go to Zion because God would teach his way in Zion (Micah 4:1-2.) This means that Zion is to be restored in the last days. Who will restore Zion?

For the LORD will rebuild Zion and appear in his glory. (Psalms 102:16)

Zion, which will be rebuilt by God, is not the natural Zion because the natural Zion was built by King David about 3,000 years ago. It’s a prophecy that God will rebuild the spiritual Zion by restoring the New Covenant which was abolished by Satan. Christ Ahnsahnghong, the spiritual David, brought us the New Covenant and restored Zion according to the prophecy of the Bible. We can have the forgiveness of sins in Zion with God’s feasts. Today, only the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) observes the New Covenant restored by Christ Ahnsahnghong according to the Bible. In the last days, we must seek David to receive blessings.

Afterward the Israelites will return and seek the LORD their God and David their king. They will come trembling to the LORD and to his blessings in the last days. (Hosea 3:5)
