In the past I have mention different things about Zion, the City of God's festivals. But it is extremely important that we as Christians understand the true meaning of Zion and why we should dwell in it. In the next upcoming blogs you will be delighted in Christ Ahnsahnghong's teachings about Zion and I truly hope that you can understand that only in Zion you can receive the promises given by Almighty God.

I am pretty sure that most of the people have heard about the word Zion in the past at least one time, whether in the Bible, or movies. But there are not many people who know exactly what Zion indicates and what are the blessing you can receive.

Christ Ahnsahnghong clearly testified about Zion so that we can recognize who Almighty God is in the last days.

Let's start from the beginning.

1) The origin of Zion:

Zion was the name of the hill in the southwest of Jerusalem, the kingpin town in Canaan, where lived the Jebusites. When David became King and conquered Zion, it belonged to the territory of Israel. Afterward David built up the area around it and called it 'the fortress of Zion' or 'the City of Zion'

2 Samuel 5: 6-10 "The king and his men marched to Jerusalem to attack the Jebusites, who lived there. The Jebusites said to David, "You will not get in here; even the blind and the lame can ward you off." They thought, "David cannot get in here." 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."

In the days of Solomon, the temple Jerusalem was established in the fortress of Zion and God dwell in it. In the temple Jerusalem, people offered sacrifice to God through the feasts, and they were given blessings from God through the sacrifice. There were many sacrifices: he Sabbath, the Passover, the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the Day of First Fruits, the Feast of Weeks, the Feast of Trumpets, the Day of Atonement, the Feast of Tabernacles. Beside, daily regular burnt offering was done in the sanctuary. Thus, the Israelites who kept the feast of God according to the law, came to be called 'the people of Zion.'

This is the description of the physical Zion, but like with everything, if there is a physical Zion, there is also a spiritual Zion.

Physically, Zion indicates the place where the temple of Jerusalem is. Spiritually, however, it indicates the true church that celebrates the appointed feast for worshiping God, who promised it a blessing, salvation.

Isaiah 33:20-24 "Look upon Zion, the city of our festivals; 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. There the LORD will be our Mighty One....No one living in Zion will say, "I am ill"; and the sins of those who dwell there will be forgiven."
