The city of refuge in the Old Testament was a temporary place of refuge for those who killed people by accident.
In fact, it is a shadow which shows what sins mankind committed in heaven.

The sinners who dwelled in the city of refuge could not return to their hometown until the death of the high priest of the city of refuge.
This show us how we can receive the forgiveness of sins and return to our hometown or heaven.

The high priest of the city of refuge represents Jesus Christ who came as the high priest in the order of Melchizedek.

[ Hebrews 5:10 ] ..and [Jesus] was designated by God to be high priest in the order of Melchizedek.

The reality of the city of refuge is this earth. Jesus was the high priest. Then, who are the sinners who dwell in the city of refuge? All people on this earth are sinners who expelled to this earth [the city of refuge] due to sins.

We can only return to heaven through the sacifice of Jesus.

Jesus came as the high priest in the order of Melchizedek; He established the Passover of the new covenant with the Passover and wine just as Melchizedek had blessed Abraham with the bread and wine (Genesis 14:17-20.)

Jesus opened the way to return to heaven from this earth or the city of refuge with the Passover of the new covenant.
In this age, Christ Ahnsahnghong restored the Passover of the new covenant re-opened the way to the kingdom of heaven.

The city of refuge in the Old Testament is a temporary place of refuge for those who killed people accidentally; it is a shadow revealing what sins mankind committed in heaven.

Only through the death of the high priest in the city of refuge, could sinners return to their hometown in the Old Testament times; this shows us how we can be forgiven of our sins.

The high priest of the earth the city of refuge: Jesus Christ
Jesus came to the earth as the high priest in the order of Melchizedek; he established
the Passover of the new covenant and the regulation of tithe through his sacrifice on the cross. In this way, the glorious way to return to heaven from this earth, the city of refuge, has been opened.

    Whether we committed it by mistake or intentionally, we are sinners. For sinners, God came to the earth in flesh and was sacrificed on the cross. Thanks to God for loving sinners.

    I could more deeply understand our God's love through this subject. We are sinners who committed sins and destined to die so that we were expelled to this earth, city of refuge. We were walking the path of death on this earth, however our God came down and sacrificed Himself to give us chance to go back. Unless He sacrificed, we would never have chance to our spiritual hometown that is why He had to suffer and died on the cross. We should never forget our God's undying love and boundless mercy. Truly express gratitude from the bottom of my heart. Thanks to Father and Mother for saving us from the chains of death.

    Amen. personally, i was really moved to understand this earth is a city of refuge.
    We are just heavenly sinners committing sin against God and falling down to this earth from Heaven.
    Thanks to Heavenly Father and Mother for letting us realize the Truth of the Bible.

    Through Elohim God's Love and Sacrifice, we can realize that we were angels who were expelled from heaven and must go back to Heaven again by keeping the New Covenant Passover.

    Through the system of the city of refuge, we can realize that we are spiritual sinners and we live in the earth which is the spiritual city of refuge. Also, we need a sacrifice of God for our going back to Heaven. Thanks to Elohim God's love and sacrifice, now we dream to go back to Heaven!!!

    The Bible teaches us that this earth is a spiritual prison where only sinners can come. We committed sins in heaven and expelled to this earth. That's why God the Father, Christ Ahnsahnghong came to this earth as High Priest and sacrificed for our salvation. Thanks to the sacrifice of God the Father, the way to heaven is opened to us, the children of God. I give all thanks and praises to Christ Ahnsahnghong who came to this earth as the High Priest for opening the way to heaven.

    I couldn't imagine before studying the teaching of Christ Ahnsahnghong that this earth is a huge prison for prisoning spiritual sinners.

    Christ Ahnsahnghong, who opened the way of life back to his heavenly hometown through the sacrifice of Christ in this city of refuge on earth full of sorrow and pain. I sincerely thank You for Your great love and sacrifice, who came to this earth once again following the order of Melchizedek and opened the way for the forgiveness of sins.

    Amen!!
    Jesus came to this earth as a high priest and sacrificed himself. Through God's sacrifice, the way to heaven has been opened. We should give thanks to God and fully observe the feasts that God has commanded us to keep.

    Christ Ahnsahnghong taught us that the system of the city of refuge was the shadow of the things to come.
    This earth is the city of refuge and we human beings are heavenly sinners! By the truth of the new covenant, I can release this earth and enter the Kingdom of heaven!

    God came to this earth as the high priest to save us from sins. Let's not forget God's grace and return to heaven.

    We thank Elohim God for letting us who have forgotten our heavenly hometown know that there is a heaven to return to and for opening the way to heaven through the New Covenant Passover.
