World Mission Society Church of God....Talking about Disasters?????

Hey folks, welcome back. So recently I was browsing the web, and I came accross a video that claimed that Church of God was a cult because i scared people by making them believe that an impendable disaster will hit them soon. After doing some research i found out that, the History Channel, National Geographic, CNN, NBC...and all the other news networks are part of a clut as well. let us see why:

The History Channel has a new show called Mega Disasters; this show is about possible scenarios of major disasters in major cities, the whole show is based that these scenarios are not a matter of "if" but "When". All these things will happen, is just a matter of time. Disasters like:

Chicago is hit by a mega tornado

The next ice age

An Asteroid Collision

Yellowstone erupting

A Tsunami hitting the United States West Coast

An F5 tornado hitting Dallas

A massive earthquake hits San Francisco

A hurricane like Katrina hits New York City

A Hurricane like Katrina hits California

A mega earthquake in the heartland of America

A firestorm could destroy all of Boston

A Tsunami in the East Coast

The Eruption of Mt Reiner.

Then if something like this happens, what can you do?

Also the National Geographic released a show called 6 degrees, and this show talks about what would happen to the earth if its global temperature raises by 6 dregrees:

You would need to be living in a bubble to not realize what is happening to the earth right now, something bad will happen soon, and not to mention that a war could just start with the push of a button. People are not waking up realizing the world that they are living in, telling people that everthing is ok, when in reality we feel that is not. such people are also prophecied in the Bible.

2 Peter 3:3-7 {First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, "Where is this 'coming' he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation." But they deliberately forget that long ago by God's word the heavens existed and the earth was formed out of water and by water. By these waters also the world of that time was deluged and destroyed. By the same word the present heavens and earth are reserved for fire, being kept for the day of judgment and destruction of ungodly men.}

Church of God does not proclaim the end of the world by fire. this is something that even the media is doing. What the Church of God proclaims is that even though something bad comes your way, by celebrating the Passover you could be protected from these disasters. if you believe the Bible you will acknowledge the Passover as Gods gift to the world.

Ex 12:13 {The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are; and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.}

This is not just a fary tale, this is truly the power of God.

Ps. 91:6-8 {nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday. A thousand may fall at your side,ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.}

Is 43:2 { When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.When you walk through the fire,you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.}

Thanks be to our Father Christ Ahnsahnghong and our Mother New Jerusalem for giving us the way to escape disasters in these last days, for giving us the Seal of God, the Passover of the New Covenant.


God's Will said...

I give thanks to Father Ahnsahnghong because when God's wrath is pour upon mankind nobody can escape. But Our Father Christ Ahnsahnghong gave us the way to be protected from any disaster, through the Passover. Because Father Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother gave us the seal of God we do not have to worry about disasters because their word is true.

I have a hard time seeing the Bible, or any holy book, as "Reliable", in general. To illustrate the point, I would like to point out some similarities between the Bible and the ancient Egyptian beliefs (being the oldest civilization we have found so far...Sumerian's, Indians and Chinese civ's debatable - all roughly 3,000 BC - maybe more?)

1. Horus, the Son of God, Immaculately conceived by the Virgin Mother Isis on Dec. 25th. Heralded by the eastern star and adored by 3 kings. As a child he was a prodigal teacher and at the age of 30 was baptized by Anup and thus began his ministry. Later Horus was crucified, killed and buried and after 3 days was resurrected and ascended into the heavens. (sound familiar?) There are a lot more similarities between Horus and Jesus and Isis and Mary that I will not bore you with here. In fact there are dozens, if not 100's of ancient religions that share these same fundamental traits!

2. Mises - as a child was placed in a reed basket and set down a river to avoid infanticide, rescued and raised as royalty. Later was a prophet and spoken-to on top of a mountain, by god and came down to deliver the 10 laws of man, written on stone tablets, which today is known as spell 125 in the Egyptian book of the dead (sounds familiar also)

3. Egyptian(name forgotten by me right now), God spoke to this man and warned him of a global flood, caused by mans sins, ordered him to build an arc/boat with one door, one window, load it with animals, etc. He Released a dove later on which was the holy spirit..(sound familiar?)

The list of similarities goes on and on for anyone who wishes to study ancient history, religion, and mythology – we don’t learn these things in Sunday/Saturday school though...

My Question: How do Christians, in general, let alone WMS members explain these things?

It is hard for me to know these things and not feel that the Bible is direct plagiarism of religions and myths that existed before. However, it doesn't answer my questions of the messages and lessons to be found in all these religions.

It seems to me that if one studies the history of religion, and not Just the passages of the Bible - you will find that most religions are so more Fundamentally Similar than different.

Isn't it possible that over time, Extra has been added on? Politically minded men and Religion are a dangerous combination.

Most of us in this world are Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, or any other Religion, not by choice - but because we were Taught to Be. Here in America, our whole social framework is Religious, whether we have ever stepped inside a church or not. We see religious leaders as authority figures above all else – We’re conditioned to.

I tend to feel that if we could spend more time Studying the Similarities of World Religions - Rather than the Differences... We might start to make Real Spiritual Progress.

Furthermore, nothing short of a "Supernatural" event can Truly Prove anything. That’s why the word “Faith” was invented.
