Zion - King David and Jesus

The name of the church that Christ established on this earth 2,000 years ago is the Church of God (1 Co 1:2; 11:22; Gal 1:13). The Church of God is also called Zion (Heb 12:22; Rev 14:1).
Zion was the name of a small mountain in Jerusalem. After the ark of the covenant of God was placed there, the term “Zion” was used to represent not only Jerusalem but also Israel (1 Ki 8:1). To understand the reason that the Church of God is called Zion, we need to understand the relationship between King David and Jesus first.

King David and Jesus

Jesus came to the world as the prophetical King David (Isa 9:6-7).

“You will be with child and give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David …”Lk 1:31-32

There is a reason King David, among many figures in the Old Testament, represents Jesus. The work of King David in the Old Testament times was a shadow of what Jesus would do in the New Testament times.

Among many achievements of King David, the most remarkable one was the establishment of Zion. The Israelites, who came out of Egypt and entered the land of Canaan, took possession of most of the land of Canaan from the time of Joshua. However, they could not conquer Zion for more than 400 years, and Zion still belonged to the Jebusites.

After David became king, he conquered Zion, the central region of Canaan and built buildings and facilities inside the fortress to make it stronger. Then he made Zion the capital city of Israel and ruled over the people in Zion. By this, David became the first king who built Zion and reigned in Zion. That’s why the fortress of Zion was called the City of David. Like this, David and Zion is inseparable and closely related.

Nevertheless, David captured the fortress of Zion, the City of David … David then took up residence in the fortress and called it the City of David. He built up the area around it, from the supporting terraces inward. And he became more and more powerful, because the LORD God Almighty was with him.2 Sa 5:7-10

The fact that Jesus came to this earth as the prophetical King David means that Jesus established Zion and became king reigning over people in Zion. Zion that Jesus built and reigned over was not the physical Zion but the spiritual Zion.

    That's right! The Bible tells us that the relationship between David and Jesus is like shadow and reality. Just as king David established the physical Zion, Jesus Christ who is the spiritual David established the spiritual Zion with feasts of God. However the feasts of new covenant was abolished after Apostolic Age. So He will come again to restore the feasts of God for our salvation in this last ages. He was the Christ Ahnsahnghong, the 2nd Coming Christ. So Christ Ahnsahnghong id the king David who fulfilled the remaining prophecies of the David.

    Zion where is set by David is the symbol of Israel.
    There's Zion in Jerusalem Castle.
    It can be said to be the spiritual home of those who believed in God.

    We, who believe in God in the last era, also have a spiritual Zion.
    If you enter the Spiritual Jerusalem, you can meet God in Zion.

    How can we recognize the Second Coming of Christ, who appears for the second time in the form of a person in the last days? The Bible prophesies that many false Christs and false prophets will appear in the end times (Matthew 24:5, 11). Among them, how can we recognize the Second Coming Christ who comes as David? Because this is a very important issue directly related to salvation, God granted a special sign to prophetic David. God said that he would establish an eternal covenant to save our souls. The eternal covenant is a grace promised only to David. In other words, the spiritual David who appears in the last days must have the sign of the ‘eternal covenant.’ ​
    The everlasting covenant is the covenant established by Jesus through the ‘blood’ and refers to the New Covenant Passover. The New Covenant Passover is also a precious promise established through sacrifice to save our souls.

    Second Coming Christ Ahnsahnghong came to this earth according to the prophecy that he would appear a second time to bring salvation.
    He came to this earth to complete the 37-year gospel life that was not accomplished at the first coming and to provide salvation.
    He came again to restore the truth of the New Covenant, which had been abolished by Satan the Devil (Daniel 7:25), and restored the New Covenant Passover after 1,600 years.
    The New Covenant Passover can only be restored by God Ahnsahnghong, the Second Coming Christ who comes in the name of David.

    Amen. Zion is a very important place through which we can recognize God in the flesh. The Bible prophesied that Zion would be rebuilt by the Spiritual King David. The Bible also says that Zion is a place where God's feasts are celebrated. So, the one who restores the feasts of God and rebuilds Zion is the Second Coming Christ. Who is He? He is Christ Ahnsahnghong.
