Today, many Christians are unaware that the lives of Christ Ahnsahnghong and King David are prophetically related. In fact, most don’t even realize the prophetic relationship between Jesus and King David. For this reason, people tend to misunderstand the death of Christ Ahnsahnghong and Jesus.
By understanding the life events of King David, we can understand the life of events of Christ in each of His comings to the Earth.
“David was thirty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned forty years in all.”
2 Samuel 5:4 (NLT)
Given that David began his reign at the age of 30, it is noteworthy that Christ commenced His ministry and received baptism at the same age (Lk 3:21–23). King David ruled over Israel for a span of 40 years. This is a prophecy showing that Christ should conduct His gospel ministry for an equivalent 40-year duration. Nonetheless, the Bible records that Jesus preached the New Covenant for merely three years before His crucifixion (Lk 13:6–7), leaving 37 years of unfulfilled reign compared to King David. However, God will never leave a prophecy unfulfilled.
The Life of Christ and Prophecy Fulfillment
Christ died 2,000 years ago for our sins. Yet, He must return to the Earth for a second time to bring salvation. We can identify the Second Coming of Christ through the fulfillment of King David’s throne, characterized by baptism at the age of 30 and a ministry lasting 37 years. Furthermore, the recognition of Second Coming Christ hinges on a distinct sign—the eternal covenant, specifically, the New Covenant Passover (Isa 55:3; Heb 13:20; Lk 22:19–20).
Christ Ahnsahnghong underwent baptism in 1948 at the age of 30. Evidently, this aligns with the symbolic prophecy of the fig tree, which Jesus conveyed to His disciples regarding His return.
Jesus instructed us to discern the timing of His second coming by considering the lesson of the fig tree. The fig tree symbolizes Israel (Jer 24:5), and Christ is to arrive after the fig tree revives. In A.D. 70, Israel faced destruction, leaving its people as refugees without a homeland. However, in 1948, Israel experienced restoration—a miraculous event signaling the appearance of Second Coming Christ.
Christ Ahnsahnghong actively preached the New Covenant for 37 years from 1948 to 1985, completely fulfilling the throne of David. Needless to say, His reign concluded with His death. If he had lived for even one more year, the prophecy would not have been fulfilled.
He carried out his ministry for 37 years and then passed away so that we can recognize Him as the spiritual King David and the awaited Second Coming Christ.
