The Bible prophesies that the last place of salvation is Zion (Micah 4:1; Revelation 14:1.) Therefore, each church insists that it’s Zion while its doctrines vary between individual churches. Where is Zion the Bible testifies about? Zion was originally a name of place in the area of Palestine. Actually, there are people who go to Zion in Palestine with the hope of salvation. However, in the age of the new covenant, Zion does not refer to a limited area of Palestine.
Look upon Zion, the city of our festivals [the city where we celebrate our religious festivals: GNT]; your eyes will see Jerusalem, a peaceful abode, a tent that will not be moved; its stakes will never be pulled up, nor any of its ropes broken. (Isaiah 33:20)
Prophetically, Zion is the place where we celebrate the feasts of God. In the time of the Old Testament, the sacrifices were offered to God in the earthly Jerusalem. Therefore, Zion where there was the earthly Jerusalem was the place of feasts. However, the center of the feasts of the new covenant is the heavenly Jerusalem.
But you have come to Mount Zion, to the heavenly Jerusalem, the city of the living God. You have come to thousands upon thousands of angels in joyful assembly (Hebrews 12:22)
Jesus also made clear that we will not worship God in the earthly Jerusalem in the age of the new covenant.
“… Our fathers worshiped on this mountain, but you Jews claim that the place where we must worship is in Jerusalem.” Jesus declared, “Believe me, woman, a time is coming when you will worship the Father neither on this mountain nor in Jerusalem. (John 4:20-21)
Then, where is Zion in the age of the new covenant? In the Old Testament, Zion was the place where the feasts of the old covenant were celebrated. Therefore, in the time of the new covenant, Zion is the place where the feasts of the new covenant are observed. Jesus fulfilled the feasts of the old covenant to the feasts of the new covenant through His sacrifice on a cross. In order to complete, He changed the Passover of the old covenant (when the Passover lamb was sacrificed) to the Passover of the new covenant (when we eat and drink the flesh and blood of Jesus who was the reality of the lamb of the old covenant.) Jesus fulfilled the prophecy of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the feast of affliction, through the torture of the cross. And He has been raised from the dead and became the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep, fulfilling the Day of Firstfruits. Like this, Jesus fulfilled all prophecies of the seven feasts of three times comprising of the Passover, the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Day of Firstfruits, the Feast of Weeks, the Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement and the Feast of Tabernacles, and newly established them as the days of celebrating the Redemption Work of Christ.
Churches which do not celebrate the feasts of God as evidenced by the Bible are not Zion. The church that observes the feasts of the new covenant made by Jesus is Zion. The World Mission Society Church of God is the only church that celebrates the seven feasts of three times in accordance with the regulations of the new covenant in the world. Then, isn’t it so clear which church is Zion?
Jesus Christ established the new covenant for the forgiveness of our sins (Matthew 26:20; Luke 22:20) 2,000 years ago. But the new covenant was abolished in 325 A.D. and since then no one could celebrate the feasts of the new covenant. According to the prophecy of the Bible, Christ Ahnsahnghong rebuild Zion by restoring the new covenant including the Passover (Please refer to this page.)
