As people who accepts God as our King and our Savior, the Bible says that at least we must know the name of the Savior.
Isaiah 52:5 “And now what do I have here?” declares the Lord. “For my people have been taken away for nothing, and those who rule them mock,” declares the Lord. “And all day long my name is constantly blasphemed. 6 Therefore my people will know my name; therefore in that day they will know that it is I who foretold it. Yes, it is I.”
God says that his people at least must know his name. Many people might think it absurd because they believe that they know the name of God perfectly well. And many say that they believe in the name of Jesus, who is their God and Savior. If that is that easy, God would not have warned that his people should know his name. Now let us find out the true name of the Savior so that we may know who the true God is and what his name is.
Jesus, a New Name of Savior
2000 years ago, when Jesus came down to this earth, God’s people in those days were Jews. They were the people who had been given the Scriptures or the bible and they studied the bible since the time of Moses. Based on the knowledge of the bible, they thought it was easy for them to know the true God and his name because the Scriptures already testified the God and his name Jehovah. It was no wonder that they had confidence on their knowledge of the bible since they studied the Scriptures or the bible day and night and they had thorough knowledge of the Law of Moses.
But when the God they believed came down to this earth in human form in the name of Jesus, it was proven that their knowledge of God was wrong since they did not recognize the God with their knowledge of the bible. They knew that God was Father Jehovah or “יהוה” in Hebrew, which corresponds to “YHWH” in English alphabets. They worshiped him since the time of Abraham calling him “God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob” and “God of Israel.” Even though they were taught about their God for thousands of years generations after generations, they did not recognize the God they claimed to know and they even crucified him and killed him when He came to save them. How and why did this happen?
Even though they thought they knew God, in actuality they did not know God. The main reason was because the God they had worshiped appeared to them with a completely different name from the one they had already know. They knew the name Jehovah, but they did not trust in the name Jesus because the new name was not recorded in the bible as the name of Savior or nobody-no prophets or teachers of laws-ever mentioned or taught about the name Jesus. According to their knowledge of the Scriptures, the Name of God was יהוה or Jehovah.
Then why did this discrepancy happen even though they were taught with the same Scriptures as the one we have now as Christians? According to the Scriptures, Jesus was not God to the Jews; however, according to the same Scriptures Jesus was God to the Christians of the Jesus’ time. How come the Jews who lived in the same era and studied the same Scriptures had completely different opinions of Jesus? One Jew said Jesus was a man blaspheming the name of God by claiming himself as God and another said that Jesus was in the very nature God who appeared in the form of a man.
It was because the Jews did not know or accept that God could appear as man and with a different name. They did not look at the prophecies of the bible and the fulfillment through Jesus. But the Christians accepted the prophecies of the bible and therefore they could accept Jesus even though he appeared to them in many ways contrary to their expectation. At least they knew that Jesus was the one who fulfilled the prophecies of the bible even though he was a man and he came from a ordinary family.
When they accepted the name Jesus, from that time the name Jesus became the name of the Savior and God to them and they started to pray in the name of Jesus. They knew that by Jesus appearing to them the name of Father, Jehovah became obsolete even though once that was the name given to them for thousands of years. With this realization, disciples of Jesus, who once were praying in the name of Jehovah, started to call on the name of Jesus and became the witnesses of Jesus, preaching Jesus was God and Savior.
The Name of the Savior in our Time
Then what is the Name of God and Savior to us? To this question, many will confidently say that Jesus is my Lord and Savior. This is understandable because His name is recorded all through the New Testament. But let us go back to the time of Jesus. Jews’ faith in Jehovah was also reasonable because Jehovah was the name recorded all through the Scriptures of the Old Testament. Even though Jehovah was the name recorded in the Old Testament, a group of people started to believe in Jesus as their God because he fulfilled all the prophecies Jehovah made in the Old Testament. Therefore, logically, they concluded that Jesus-even though he came with a different name-was God the Father Jehovah.
It is the same in our time. The standard of our faith should be based on the prophecies of God in the bible. If the bible says, we will have the same name Jesus as the name of Savior, then we must believe in the name of Jesus. But what if the bible says Jesus will come with a different name just as he had done 2000 years ago? If that is the case, we would make the same mistake as the Jews had made 2000 years ago by insisting the obsolete name of Savior as true name and rejecting the true name of Savior by holding on to his old without knowing that a new age has come when we have to know the new name of Savior.
Not to make this kind of mistake we must know the prophecies of the bible. Then what does the bible say about the Second Coming Christ and his name? Let us first find about some of the prophecies of the bible so that we can know the plan of God for our salvation.
The Name of the Holy Spirit
Matthew 28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
This verse contains a deep prophecy of our salvation. Through this verse Jesus is teaching us the plan of God’s salvation. Let us find out the secrets one by one so that we can understand the plan of God for our salvation. First, we have to know the word, “baptizing.” The reason we have to focus on this word is because baptism is a very essential ceremony for the salvation. Baptism is a ceremony through which we can receive the forgiveness of sins and the names we must be baptized in are the names of God we must know and accept for our salvation since God is the only one who can give the forgiveness of sins.
This verse reveals to us that God divided his salvation work into three different stages or ages: the Age of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. And in each age he gave a name for the Savior. To the Jews before Jesus’ coming, the name of Savior was Jehovah and for this reason it was hard for them to accept the name Jesus since they had been taught that Jehovah was the Savior. But disciples who knew the plan of God could get rid of their own prejudice about God and could accept Jesus because he accomplished all the prophecies of the bible.
Then what did Jesus teach about the last days? By saying that we must get baptized in the name of the Holy Spirit, he was teaching to us that first, there would be the age of the Holy Spirit in the last days, and second people who are living in the last days must know the name of the Holy Spirit for the baptism to be complete for their salvation. Therefore, we who are living not in the Age of Father, nor in the Age of Son, but in the Age of Holy Spirit must know two things, that is, who the Holy Spirit is and what His name is. First, who is the Holy Spirit? Since the bible already prophesied that Christ would appear a second time (Hebrews 9:28), we can guess the Holy Spirit must be the second coming Christ.
The reason the age of first coming Christ is called the Age of Son was because of the title given to Jesus when he came for the first time. According to a prophecy of a bible in the Book of Isaiah, Christ would be coming as son. (Isaiah 9:6) But the bible says that the Christ who would appear second time in the last days would use a different title, “the Holy Spirit.” We can confirm this through the titles Jesus uses throughout the New Testament. When he came 2000 years, he called himself “Son” by using the title “the Son of Man.”
Matthew 12:8 For the Son of Man is Lord of the Sabbath.
Also people also called Jesus with the title “Son.”
Luke 18:38 38 He called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
But when Jesus appears in the last days, he does not use the title “Son” anymore; instead he uses the title “the Holy Spirit” to refer to himself.
Revelation 2:17 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
This book of Revelation was based on the revelation John received from Jesus, which is concerned about things that “must soon take place.” (Revelation 1:1) Therefore, we can say, this book is a prophecy about the last days. In this revelation, Jesus keeps using the title “the Spirit” or the Holy Spirit to refer to himself. This reveals that he would use the title “the Spirit”, not “the Son” in the last days. Then we can call this age when he is using the title, the Holy Spirit as the Age of the Holy Spirit.
And Jesus taught that he would have a name in this age too and we must know this name to get baptized for the forgiveness of sins. Then what would be the name of Jesus in the last days? Would it be the same Jesus? Or would it be different like 2000 years ago by coming with a completely different name to make it hard for people to recognize him? To give the correct answer we must look at the prophecies of the bible. Then what does the bible say about the name of the Holy Spirit?
Revelation 3:11 I (Jesus) am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. 12 The one who is victorious I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will they leave it. I will write on them the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on them my new name. 13 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches.
He is speaking about the future when he comes back in the last days and He says that he would come with a NEW name when he comes for the second time. Let us confirm again.
Revelation 2:17 Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give that person a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to the one who receives it.
According to the bible, the stone represents Christ himself (1 Peter 2:4), and the stone with a NEW name means Christ who is
coming with another name. Through this we can see that the Christ would come with a completely different name when he comes in the Age of the Holy Spirit in the last days. How hard would it be for people to know the Christ and accept the new name of the Christ in the last days as we have already seen through the same event the Jews had 2000 years ago in his first coming.
In this situation, who would be like disciples of Jesus 2000 years ago and accept the second coming Christ? Many will act in the same way as the Jews had done and will reject the second coming Christ and will not be able to receive the salvation by refusing to be baptized in the name of the Holy Spirit. We who wants to receive salvation must be different and have spiritual eyes to recognize the Christ who is coming with a new name. The only ways is through the prophecies of the bible. Whoever fulfills the prophecies of the bible is the second coming Christ and his name is the new name which we must accept for our salvation.
Then what is the name of the Holy Spirit? To know answer for this question, first we should ask these questions? How fulfill the prophecies of King David? Melchizedek? Moses? All these prophecies got fulfilled by one man who came as man in the flesh from a far off land in the east in 1948 to fulfill all the prophecies Christ gave 2000 years ago about his second coming. (Matthew 24) The man is Christ Ahnsahnghong. He came and fulfilled all the prophecies of the bible and through this we must know that the new name of the Holy Spirit is Ahnsahnghong and this is the name of Savior in the Age of the Holy Spirit.
Come to Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother New Jerusalem and receive salvation.
