Through the bible again and again God teaches people that we should be good and love the aliens and strangers.

Exodus 22:21 You shall not wrong a stranger or oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.

Leviticus 19:34 You shall not wrong a stranger or oppress him, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt.

Why does God give us regulations and teachings about the aliens and strangers so many times through the bible? Apparently this is because once the Israel people lived in the land of Egypt as aliens and strangers. However, these regulations are not given just in memory of the Egyptian captivity. The ultimate purpose of God is always for the spiritual Israel people.

Whatever is written in the past was written to teach us the spiritual people of God. According to the bible, all of us are living in this earth as aliens and strangers spiritually. Some might say I am not living as aliens because I live in the hometown where I was born. Then how can I be called aliens? This might be true in his life in the flesh in this earth. But I am speaking about the hometown of our spirit?

Where did our spirit come from? Was our spirit born in this earth along with our body? Is our spiritual home this earth too? The bible teaches that our spirit was not originated on this earth, rather it came from God in heaven. Thus, after our life on this earth is over, our spirit will return to our true home, the heavenly one. (Gen 2:7, Ecc 12:7)

Apostles of the early church teaches us again and again that our life on this earth is that of aliens and strangers.

1Peter 2:11 Dear friends, I urge you, as foreigners and exiles, to abstain from sinful desires, which wage war against your soul.

1Peter 1:17 Since you call on a Father who judges each person’s work impartially, live out your time as foreigners here in reverent fear.

Apostle Peter let us know that we are living as foreigners and exiles on this earth, which means that we do not belong to this world. Our life on this earth is temporary and when the time comes we will go back to our true home. Then where is our true hometown? Apostle Paul testifies about the world we will go back to.
While speaking about the forefathers of faith, Paul says that their life on this earth was temporary and short. When their life on this earth is over, the eternal home is waiting for them where they would go back to when they end their life of strangers here.

Hebrews 11:13 All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth. 14 People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. 15 If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. 16 Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.

He boldly testify about the heavenly country where we will return when the appointed time comes. That is the home for our spirit where our spiritual Father and Mother and brothers and sisters live. That is the place where our citizenship belongs.

Philippians 3:20 But our citizenship is in heaven. And we eagerly await a Savior from there, the Lord Jesus Christ, 21 who, by the power that enables him to bring everything under his control, will transform our lowly bodies so that they will be like his glorious body.

For these reasons all the people of God compared their life here as tent. Their body is the temporary space for their soul to live and when the time comes they leave the tent of their body behind and their soul would receive a glorious heavenly body and then they will go back to their eternal home.

Christ himself said that he would prepare our place in heaven and when done he would come back and take us to the heaven.

John 14:1 “Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. 2 My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. 4 You know the way to the place where I am going.”

Now the time of the fulfillment of the prophecies of the bible has come and Christ has come back again to take us to the eternal home we belong to. Let us hold on to this faith and do the will of God. God said that the crown of righteousness is waiting for us and we will reign in heaven forever and ever. The hardship and tribulations are short and the glory would be eternal with our Father and Mother in heaven.

    This earth who we live is like a temporary tent. it means that here is not convenient and comfort than our eternal home, heaven.

    Thanks to Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother have let us realize that this earth is just the place to stay temporarily but our real hometown is heaven. So, Father and Mother came down to bring us to the kingdom of heaven through the truth of the new covenant.


  • 2020-12-15 11:35

    Amen. Looking forward to the day when we go back to our eternal home Heaven!


  • 2020-12-15 11:49

    Amen! Foreigners have their hometown, but don’t live in their hometown. We also have the real hometown, the Heaven. But, we live in the earth. The earth is not our hometown. We are just staying in here for a while. We must not forget our real hometown!!!

    Could you explain the reason God has come down in the flesh to the earth?
    Concerning this matter, have you ever heard the Biblical answer?
    It's very important to understand the meaning of 'God the Father'. Jesus Christ also taught that we have God the Father in heaven.
    This means that we were God's children, who had lived so glorious life in heaven's kingdom although we are living on the earth.
    That is, we all are aliens and foreigners on this earth.
    This is why people , 'Oh! he returned!' when a man died.
    'Salvation' means that our souls return to heavenly kingdom with glory.
    What will be more valuable than following God in the flesh?


  • 2020-12-15 13:46

    Amen! All the people living on this earth are aliens and foreigners, whose spiritual hometown is heaven. Heavenly Father and Mother came to this earth to let us know this fact and help us get ready to go back to our spiritual home. I give all thanks, praise and glory to Heavenly Father and Mother who still work for our salvation.


  • 2020-12-15 13:47

    Amen! Truly our hometown is the Kingdom of heaven. Looking forward the day we will go back to heaven, Let's go through all the hardships and trials


  • 2020-12-15 13:50

    If I had not accepted Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother, who gave forgiveness of sins and eternal life through the Passover of the New Covenant, I would have been living for the vain and vain things now. And there must have been an eternal destruction of the soul. However, through the voice of Heavenly Father and Mother, I accepted the truth of the New Covenant. Our Father and Mother who washed our sins in the soul world with Their holy sacrifice and granted the grace of forgiveness of sins...
    I sincerely thank You for Your great love and grace.
    Even more 'Animo' to heaven today!! 🙂

    Looking at this picture, it really feels like I've arrived Kingdom of Heaven. Yes, we are living in this earth as aliens and strangers spiritually. Let's work harder when we think about the time to return to our hometown Heaven!


  • 2020-12-15 14:07

    We will end our life as foreigners on this earth and return to Heaven, the hometown of our soul. God the Father is waiting for us. Let's take the earnest prayer of Heavenly Mother in our heart and prepare to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.


  • 2020-12-15 14:16

    Truly we are only aliens and strangers on this earth, just visiting for a very short time compared to our eternal hometown; heaven. If Christ Ahnsahnghong didn't come to this world a 2nd time, none of us would know about our soul problem or about our eternal hometown. We should all now accept Christ Ahnsahnghong and prepare to go back to our eternal kingdom of heaven.


  • 2020-12-15 14:54

    This earth is just the temporary place but our eternal home is Kingdom of Heaven. We must have a hop for Heaven. So we have to prepare our spiritual life during live on the earth


  • 2020-12-15 23:20

    Amen. Let's overcome all the temporary difficulties on this earth with endurance till the end. We can do it in Christ Ahnsahnghong and heavenly Mother.


  • 2020-12-16 02:37

    Amen, to know the matter of our soul while living in this world is really important. Because it shows us the right direction where we should go. I give thanks to God the Father and God the Mother for teaching us the matter of soul!


  • 2020-12-31 14:35

    I miss my heavenly home. I eagerly want to return to my heavenly country with my loving family. How much beautiful the kingdom of heaven is! I pray, today, that God Elohim will take all of us to the heavenly home altogether.
