Second Coming Christ already came with a New Name: Christ Ahnsahnghong

What Christian is not waiting for the Second Coming of Christ? If you ask them they will answer that he is coming in the last day or judgement day. But what they don't know is that he already came according to the Bible, not according to human knowledge.

Matthew 24:3 As Jesus was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately. "Tell us," they said, "when will this happen, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age?"

It is not about His first coming that they were asking, but about His secong coming. Through his disciples Christ already gave us the answer of when is He going to come again. Then when is it according to the Bible?

Matthew 24: 30 "At that time the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky, and all the nations of the earth will mourn. They will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of the sky, with power and great glory... "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 (it=he) is near, right at the door. I tell you the truth, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened.

What is the Lesson of the Fig Tree? What does it has to do with Christ Second Coming?

Luke 13:6 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. So he said to the man who took care of the vineyard, '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?'

What does this parable mean? What does figs, vineyard represent? And who is the man?
Without understanding this parable concerning the fig tree we wont know when will he come.

Isaiah 5:7 The vineyard of the LORD Almighty is the house of Israel...

Jeremiah 24:3 "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: 'Like these good figs, I regard as good the exiles from Judah...

This parable is concerning Israel; this man went to Israel for 3 years looking for jews but didnt find any. Then who is this man? Jesus Christ, he came to Israel and preached the Gospel for 3 years (AD30-AD33) but didn't find any repentance from the jews, He was mocked, persecuted and crucified by them.

Mark 11:12 The next day as they were leaving Bethany, Jesus was hungry. Seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to find out if it had any fruit. When he reached it, he found nothing but leaves, because it was not the season for figs. Then he said to the tree, "May no one ever eat fruit from you again." And his disciples heard him say it. In the morning, as they went along, they saw the fig tree withered from the roots. Peter remembered and said to Jesus, "Rabbi, look! The fig tree you cursed has withered!"

When he cursed the fig tree Christ was actually cursing the jews. He prophesied the destruction and desolation of Israel.

Luke 21:20 "When you see Jerusalem being surrounded by armies, you will know that its desolation is near. Then let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains, let those in the city get out, and let those in the country not enter the city. For this is the time of punishment in fulfillment of all that has been written. How dreadful it will be in those days for pregnant women and nursing mothers! There will be great distress in the land and wrath against this people. They will fall by the sword and will be taken as prisoners to all the nations. Jerusalem will be trampled on by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles are fulfilled.

In AD70 Israel was completely destroyed by the Romans. Just as Jesus Christ prophesied it, it happened. 1.1 million jews were killed and 97k were taken as prisioners. The same way He prophesied the destruction, He also prophesied the restoration of Israel. When?

Jeremiah 30:3 The days are coming,' declares the LORD, 'when I will bring my people Israel and Judah back from captivity and restore them to the land I gave their forefathers to possess,' says the LORD."

According to history in May 14th 1948 Israel was restored, they got back their independence. It has been considered a miraculuos event, how after 1900 years of being destroyed, no country no nothing it just took 50 years for them to get their independence back. But why did this happened? Is it really a miraculuos sign? Of course not, Christ already prophesied it.

What does this has to do with Christ's Second Coming, why was a country destroyed and restored again? This is the Lesson of the Fig Tree, when twigs get tender and leaves come out Christ will be knocking at the door. But what is the status of the Fig Tree before twigs and leaves come out? It's withered, dead.

What does Figs/Fig Tree represent? Jews. In AD70 they were destroyed, withered but in 1948 they were restored. Then when Israel was restored who was at the door? Second Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong.

Second Coming Christ came in 1948 according to the lesson of the Fig Tree. Why Christ Ahnsahnghong? Because Christ prophesied that at his Second Coming He will come with a New Name.
