Even When I Didn’t Know, God the Mother Always Waited For Me – Christ Ahnsahnghong
I always wondered if God really exists and what He is like if He does exist. I once visited a Catholic Church by myself, but my question was not solved. There was no one to teach me about God and no explanation good enough to gratify my curiosity, and I was unable to get answers to my questions no matter how much I read the Bible. I marked the places where I did not understand with a question mark and just kept attending church for about ten years, hoping to find the way someday.
Just last spring, I had to sell my store because of continuing health problems, so I had a clearance sale. One day, some people came to my store and told me that not only do we have a Heavenly Father but there exists our Heavenly Mother. I headed to the World Mission Society Church of God (WMSCOG) with them because I wanted to confirm it through the Bible.
“I will not listen to anything but just the words of the Bible.”
This is what I sternly said at first, and then began to study the Bible. I was glued to my spot for over two hours. When I confirmed the hidden identity of Satan through the prophecy of Daniel and Revelation, I couldn’t believe my eyes. I checked the verses in the Bible again and again, but it clearly showed how wrong the path I was walking on was.
I felt like my heart was going to burst. All the things that I had been holding onto for all my life had nothing to do with the Bible, and rather they were against God. When I realized this, the feeling of fear struck me. Although it was pretty late at night, I did not want to delay receiving the blessing of becoming God’s child until the next day. I received a new life immediately.
The next day, and the day after that, I went to Zion every day. Nothing else was more important and meaningful than confirming the existence of God, which I had been longing to know for so long. I began to study the words in the morning, and it continued until sunset. While studying the words, I also paid close attention to the church members. What I wanted to see was the behaviors of the members as well as the words of the Bible in order to be fully sure whether or not the World Mission Society Church of God really followed the Bible. A month passed like that, and I noticed how kind the members were of one another as well as their bright smiles on their faces.
While living in this world, I met so many people who claimed to believe in God before I came to the Church of God. I gave my ears to their conversations to learn about God, but they all boasted about their husbands, children, money, cars or houses.
But the Church of God teaches and keeps the words of the bible, and in addition to that, even the behaviors of the members were far from being worldly. That is when i was fully sure that it is the true church.
I preached the truth to my daughter right away. But she wouldn’t accept God’s words, saying, “How can God come as a man?” I burst out into tears. My heart ached, thinking how heart broken Heavenly Mother must have been for Her children. Seeing my daughter, I became even more assured that Heavenly Mother is the true God. I also became more resolute that we need to believe the words of the Bible even though it is a little hard to understand the words with human thoughts. Around that time, my son came home on leave from the military. He became God’s child with a pure heart. I cried again because I was so thankful. Then I gained hope that my daughter would understand the truth, too, someday.
I always thought that God was far away in heaven. Whenever I was having a hard time, I looked up at the sky and sighed, and didn’t know that heavenly Mother was always with me. Now I have finally realized that She waited for me to recognize the truth and accept it, embracing my empty heart with Her warm love I was tired from the hard life in this world.
As a child of Mother who always gives love, I will deliver love to the people around me and let them know the truth. Mother, You love me more than myself. Thank You for Your grace of salvation! Thank you Father Christ Ahnsahnghong and Heavenly Mother.
