1 Corinthians 11:23- "For I received from the Lord what I also passed on
to you..."

Philippians 3:17- "Join with others in following my example, brother,
and take note of those who live according to the pattern we gave you."

1 Peter 2:21- "To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you,
leaving you an example, that you should follow in his footsteps.

Even apostle Paul gave us an example to follow which he received from
Christ. This too shows us that our actions are very important in our
lives of faith.

So I pose the question, why are our actions so important?

Revelations 1:3- "Blessed is the one who reads the words of this
prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is
written in it, because the time is near."

James 1:22- "Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive
yourselves. Do what it says. Anyone who listens to the word but does
not do what it says is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror and,
after looking at himself, goes away and immediately forgets what he
looks like. But the man who looks intently on the perfect law that
gives freedom, and continues to do this, not forgetting what he has
heard, but doing it- he will be blessed in what he does."

I truly wish to thank our Heavenly Father Christ Ahnsahnghong and
Heavenly Mother for leaving their thrones behind to reveal this amazing
truth. Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother came and set us an example to follow just as Jesus did 2000 years ago. They came and established Zion, the Church of God World Mission
Society so we can come freely to learn all the mysteries in the Bible.

  • It appears that ever since I came to the Church of God World
    Mission Society, I've been hearing one common theme from friends and
    family like a resounding gong. This central idea that everyone has been
    expressing to me lately is that we are saved by our faith, our belief in
    Jesus Christ is what gets us into the kingdom of heaven.
  • Now I don't know about anyone who may be reading this but
    personally, when it comes to matters such as salvation, I make sure that
    I am extra careful to find the correct answers. So I took the time to
    review some of the things I've studied in the Bible and came across some
    very compelling verses on this issue.
  • John 13:15- "I have set you an example that you should do as I have
    done for you."
  • John 14:15- "If you love me you will obey what I command."
  • It can clearly be seen that if we desire to love God, we must obey what
    he commanded. But what did he command? That follow the example that
    set for us.
  • Between these two verses, it is plain to me that just believing is God
    is not enough. Believing in God and confessing His name is the
    beginning of our path to salvation. However, it is clear in the Bible
    that our beliefs and confessions must be backed by our actions.
    This understanding was revealed by our Heavenly Father Christ
    Ahnsahnghong who came to remind us of all of Jesus Christ's teachings.
    Although Christ Ahnsahnghong gave us enough to understand from these
    verses, I presume that if the readers of this blog may be something like
    me and may not be satisfied with just these verses. In this case I will
    post again very soon to show what else Christ Ahnsahnghong said on this
