Christ Ahnsahnghong

The Sign of Second Coming Christ

The Bible tells us everything we need to know about the Savior (Jn 5:39). Regarding the time of His second coming, which takes place as a separate event before Judgment Day, Jesus told His disciples to learn the lesson from the fig tree. Through that parable, Jesus left us the sign of His second coming.

“‘Now learn a lesson from the fig tree. When its branches bud and its leaves begin to sprout, you know that summer is near. In the same way, when you see all these things, you can know his return is very near, right at the door.’”

Matthew 24:32-33 (NLT)

According to the Old Testament, the fig tree represents Israel (Jer 24:5). And in the New Testament, Jesus also likened the fig tree to Israel (Mk 11:12–14, 20–21). Concerning the fig tree that represents Israel, Jesus prophesied about its collapse through another parable.

“Then he told this parable: ‘A man had a fig tree, planted in his vineyard, and he went to look for fruit on it, but did not find any. ... “For three years now I’ve been coming to look for fruit on this fig tree and haven’t found any. Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?”’”

In this parable, the man looking for fruit on the fig tree for three years is Jesus. Jesus’ ministry confirms this. He was baptized at 30 years old, and He preached the gospel in Israel for three years until His death on the cross.

The Lesson of the Fig Tree

Despite preaching and looking for fruit (repentance, Mt 3:8), He could not find any – which is why He said in the parable, “Cut it down! Why should it use up the soil?” Consequently, when a tree is cut down, it dies. Connecting the verses, Israel, which rejected Jesus, was the prophesied fig tree to be “cut down.” And in A.D. 70, Jesus’ words were fulfilled with the Siege of Jerusalem by the Roman Empire.

Jesus’ prophecy (Lk 21:20–24) was fulfilled and the fig tree collapsed. However, the prophecy also said it will not remain that way forever but be revived in due time (Lk 21:24).

The fallen nation of Israel was finally restored after World War II ended and regained independence in 1948. This was not only a miracle for Jewish people all around the world, but also a sign for Christians that Second Coming Christ has come to this earth.

“Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near. Even so, when you see all these things, you know that it [he] is near, right at the door.”

In the year of the fig tree’s revival, God proclaimed His second coming. In 1948, Christ Ahnsahnghong was baptized at the age of 30 and began preaching the gospel, the truth of the New Covenant. Additionally, Christ Ahnsahnghong completed the throne of King David.

Christ Ahnsahnghong is King David

King David, the second king of Israel, became king at the age of 30 and reigned as king for 40 years. Jesus came as the spiritual King David (Isa 9:6, Lk 1:31); His baptism at the age of 30 was proof of this (Lk 3:21–23). However, Jesus did not complete His reign as King David since He preached for only three years.

When Second Coming Christ comes, He needs to complete the throne of King David: be baptized at the age of 30 and preach the gospel for 37 years. Christ Ahnsahnghong fulfilled the throne of King David by preaching from 1948 (the year the fig tree came back to life) until 1985 (37 years after baptism), when He passed away.

Therefore, Christ Ahnsahnghong is the Second Coming Christ who is testified in Bible (Jn 5:39).
