I developed Guiding God’s People because I felt the hunger for God’s word from God’s people at my previous church. My teachings of God’s words were very well received one Saturday morning. People asked me to teach more often. So I coordinated with two other church members, and we came up with the idea of having a potluck and Bible studies monthly in each other’s home following church service.
This worked out great and many people enjoyed the meetings and verbally shared how the studies blessed them. We had music, prayer, Bible study and time for each member to contribute something if they wished following the potluck–usually the host prepared the food for us. We had a very multi-ethnic group.
The Japanese assistant pastor’s family joined in once. The mother was warm and gracious towards me but the father and son snubbed me. After that we had some challenges in the church. We were asked not to organize and meet in each other’s homes.
The leadership quickly announced the selling of the church without the members’ real input. The many members advocated against the selling of the church, but the board said they had already made the decision to sell the church. We were informed at a meeting. We could voice our thoughts about it, but the church members input didn’t amount to anything. The board decided for us. Eventually the Seventh Day Adventist Church was sold and closed. Lots of half million dollar or more homes were built on the lot.
The church I believe called “Love” or something like that now rents out a facility from another church. The lead pastor said they made a mistake selling the church. They lost a lot of members.
We stopped the Bible study in each others homes because some of the church leaders demanded that we stopped and made life difficult for us in the church. My husband and I left the church before they relocated to their now rental facility. I did not follow the church to their new location, but my husband did visit once to say goodbye to the pastor who left too. I was displeased by the leadership. So I decided to continue the ministry via the internet. I had thoughts of doing the website, but the impetus for the start came from this ordeal and not trusting the church leadership because they failed us. So I put my energy into teaching the truth as God has reveal the truth through the words of the Bible via guidinggodspeople.net.
I lead the website and call myself Creature because I am one of God’s many creatures that He has created. I came up with my name for the site from Paul’s verse below:
Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. (2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV)
Our focus is also of course on preaching the gospel of the coming Kingdom of Yahweh. We want to help lead others into this Kingdom: a place of refuge and safety.
Like a tree, with the proper nutrients we can stand up together against the assaults of Yahweh’s enemy: Satan. When we strive to rise above a life of sin and obey the voice of Yahweh, He will help us escape.
I initiated the blog to obey the voice of Yahweh.
Remember where two or more are gathered, God is in their midst. Church is not a building, the Church represents the people of Yahweh. I will continue to fellowship and share God’s message of salvation with family and friends. I choose to follow The Holy Way of righteousness.
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit ever month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (Revelation 22:2 KJV)
In concluding, I am an educator by profession and initially taught a Bible study class though reluctant because I knew my beliefs did not align with the Seventh Day Adventist Church. Many of the people just lit up and felt empowered in the word of God. They asked me to teach more and asked many questions. I felt called serve in this manner. So I talked to two individuals to help me start Bible study lessons. This ultimately lead to guidinggodspeople.net.
