How did i come to the truth?!

First and foremost, I want to give all thanks, honor, and praise to our heavenly Father Christ Ahn Sahng Hong and Mother. Before being called to the truth, things were so different in my life. My goals were different; they were of earthly nature.

In addition to the real estate classes, someone had given me the book The Davinci Code. I decided to read it even though I had not leisurely read a book in a long time. Woven into the storyline of the book was the fact that Christians observe the Sabbath on Sunday and the reason being was that Constantine changed it from Saturday to Sunday and that they do not realize they are worshipping on the wrong day.

It also spoke of Easter being the Teutonic goddess of spring, which has nothing to do with Christianity. I underlined those specific parts of the book and lost interest soon after and never finished reading the book. Instead it sparked my interest in Christianity and confirmed for me that the Sabbath day was Saturday.

All this happened around the same time I was preached to. On one of the last Thursdays of the real estate classes, I finally gave in and I was depressed enough to go to Mall but made a compromise with myself. Since it was already 8:45 and the stores closed at 9:00pm, I would head straight for a certain store and not stop anywhere else.

While on this late night shopping mission I was stopped by two girls that had seen the cross around my neck and asked if I believed in God. Of course I said, and then they asked about the Sabbath day. I stopped immediately and listened, they were telling me about the Sabbath and Passover, but while they were speaking to me, security came and told them they could not preach here.

They gave me a pamphlet and their phone numbers and called a few times that week, but so many things had come up that I felt like I did not have any time. I read the pamphlet over and over again thinking this is right!

About a month later, while I was at work, I was thinking about going to the church. I remember wanting to call and I looked and looked for the pamphlet but could not find it and was not sure if I had deleted the messages they had left me.

I was actually thinking about it the whole day and was on the computer later that Friday night looking for the website when one of the evangelists called me. The situation was peculiar: I was thinking about calling the whole day and an hour after I got home they called me.

I kept on saying “Wow, what a coincidence!” and the evangelist kept saying, “No, it is God, just wait, you will see.” I said I would go the next day, the Sabbath day, and I have been going since then.

I pray that Father Ahn Sahng Hong and Mother will guide us to Their lost children and give so much thanks and praise to Christ Ahn Sahng Hong and Mother. Please Visit

God Bless You. Your testimony on how you came to the Church of God is amazing.

You made me realize that I should never lose hope in preaching to someone, even if they don't call me back right away or seem they are not interested immediately.

All we can do is plant the seed, but it is Father Ahn Sahng Hong and Heavenly Mother Jerusalem that waters it and makes it grow.

God Bless You!

Truly without our Elohim God we would be in total darkness. I am so glad that the light came into this dark world and enlightened our gloomy hearts. Our Father Christ AhnsangHong you are the light of life. You shined the light of our Heavenly Mother in this dark world. Father you truly prepared the way of God Almighty Our Mother. I am so happy that we can see the true light. All Honor and Glory forever and ever to our Elohim God

Out of Mother's Teachings, i have 13 favorites. But i'm going to comment on the last one...

"Even God didn't come to be served, but to serve. When we serve one another without wanting to be served, God will be pleased"

When i first read this one i was taken aback. "EVEN God..." meaning, thought She could and should be served, She doesn't want to be served.

I remember part of a story about this. She was entering a Church to start service. In the crowd, there was a new person. He respecfully bowed to Her. However, because the floor was slippery and She was looking down, She did not see him.

He got upset because She had not acknowledge him and didn't come back to Church. When Mother heard this, She felt so sad. Mother Jerusalem with the brothers and sisters went to visit him. There, Creator GOD, Mother Jerusalem, respecfully bowed to him. He was happy and came back to church.

Mother didn't think about Her position (( GOD!! )). She just wanted his soul to be saved. No matter what, if we please others by serving, their soul will be saved, which is what Father AhnSahngHong and Mother Jerusalem want. And as children, don't we want to make our Parents happy? Yeah! Especially if They are GOD!

Thank you Father Christ AhnSahngHong and Mother for bringing me to the truth! I was so fed up with this physical life. Everything around me seemed like it had no love. Then I met Christ Ahn Sahng Hong and Heavenly Mother. When I began to learn all the truth in the bible, I was so happy and still am!! I sometimes have to pinch myself because I am still in the flesh but I have a feel like I am in heaven ever since I met Father Chris Ahnsanghong and Mother!
