The route out your have chosen is a lot more common to aberrant church members than you might think. And those who have been brought out of aberrant groups by God's word alone know the experiences along the way intimately and I would be that there are a few of them who post on here, seeing your posts, are praising God and praying for you to be encouraged because you evidently have not turned your back on God in the process of turning away from false teachers (even all human teachers at this time). It appears to me that God has already taken your hand to lead you to Himself, and some of us can tell you that He will pick you up and carry you forward when you are having any difficulties along the way. Some of such times may take you a bit of time to realize, however, but when you do realize that has happened to you, it will become like the stone pillars the Israelites build to commemorate places where God did similar to them - milestones that you will not forget.
And I can also tell you that some with similar experiences in their past who read your posts will likely be chomping at the bit in desire to help you over the bumps, so please be patient with any who try to teach you on here.
I can tell you that when I read John 1:1 for exactly what it said, understanding already the until that time puzzling plural self-reference of Genesis 1:26, I struggled and struggled all by myself until God reminded me that while I am finite, He is infinite - and by that I realized that I would never be able to completely understand everything that He says about Himself. That is one of my milestones - one God who speaks of Himself in the plural form right in Genesis 1. John 1:1 perfectly supports that plural form "us" in Genesis 1.
