The Savior in the Age of the Holy Spirit
Now we are living in the age of the Holy Spirit.
Thus, God has given us a new name of the Savior.
Rev 3:12 "Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it. I will write on him the name of my God and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which is coming down out of heaven from my God; and I will also write on him my new name."
Rev 2:17 "He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it."
A "white stone with a new name written on it" is mentioned in the above verse. In this instance, the stone represents Jesus (1 Pe 2:4), meaning that a new name other than the name of Jesus would be given to the people of that age.
Just as salvation was withheld from those who were stuck on the name of Jehovah and failed to receive Jesus as their Savior in the age of the Son (Ro 15:4), salvation will never be given to those who are stuck on the name of Jesus in this age.
Those who had accepted the name of Jehovah for 3,500 years were not able to accept the name of Jesus in the age of the Son. Only the disciples accepted Jesus, the Savior in the age of the Son, who had come as prophesied. The Bible prophesied that there would be a Savior in the age of the Son. Even though Jesus came in fulfillment of all these prophecies, the people insisted on believing in only Jehovah, following their own ideas instead of Bible’s prophecy. Where are all of the people who lived in the age of the Son and who refused to accept Jesus as their Savior?
We must consider this matter carefully and break our own fixed ideas, allowing our minds to accept God’s thoughts. The Bible testifies that there will undoubtedly be a name for the Savior of the Holy Spirit’s age. We need to understand God’s providence of salvation—His allowing a different Savior’s name for each age—and we need to accept Christ Ahnsahnghong, the Savior’s name in this age of the Holy Spirit, Jesus’ new name.
