MCGI-Winnipeg Hands Out Winter Clothes and Hot Drinks to Homeless Citizens
One more thing, the Bible said, the four angels were preventing the four winds from blowing. According to the INC, the wind symbolizes war. And they based their deduction on Jer.
Even a full wind from those places shall come unto me: now also will I give sentence against them. Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles.
Woe unto us! For we are spoiled. I am pained at my heart; my heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war.
They said that the wind refers to war - the war in That is wrong! Granting, without accepting, that the wind referred to war, where did this war take place?
Is it a war in the Philippines, or a world war? And definitely, it is not the war! Did you see the discrepancies in the explanation of the INC ministers? There were four winds in the Book of Revelation, but when they read the Book of Jeremiah, where they based their explanation, they only read about one wind.
Nonetheless, they still concluded this also refers to the winds in the Book of Revelation. There were four winds in the Book of Revelation.
How come, Mr. Manalo gave meaning only to just one wind? Let us go back to the Book of Revelation. There were four winds. But granting that they were correct in using Jer. I once told the INC ministers that, if Mr.
Manalo is really a messenger of God, then, he should have taught them the symbolism of the three other winds being mentioned in Rev.
Do you know what they told me? They said that the three winds are just in my mind. If the winds in the Book of Revelation were the same with the wind in the Book of Jeremiah, which refers to war, definitely it does not refer to the war in ! This is what Jer. It came to the City of God, Israel, and not to the entire world. The whole world is not the City of God. There are many nations on earth which are not of God. According to the prophecy, there is a dry wind, not four but one.
However, the Book of Revelation mentioned four. In other words, the prophecy of Jeremiah is short of three winds. But this was not given any explanation by Manalo. This particular prophecy did not happen in the Philippines!
It says, the wind shall neither fan nor cleanse. However, when the literal wind blows, it fans and cleanses. But this wind is a dry wind; it does not refresh one. It does not cleanse. Instead, it makes one dirty. What is this wind? This wind is a punishment of God to Israel. Which wind is it? Let us continue. And this wind has chariots.
Do you know that the INC interpreted these chariots as tankers that rotate degrees? What is it?
I am pained at my very heart; my heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war. It is the war in Jerusalem. It speaks of the destruction of Israel. Which war was it? It was the war in Jerusalem, not in the Philippines. And was there really a war and destruction that came to Jerusalem?
Let us find out from Matthew what our Lord Jesus Christ prophesied. And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? Verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. The laying of hands on Mr. And these are the teachings of God. And as we have promised you, we shall continue tackling about the church which Mr.
The topic that we would like to talk about, this time, concerns Mr. But let us find out from the biblical standards if Mr. Felix Manalo is, indeed, a messenger of God. This is not to malign, or to put him in an embarrassing situation. We know very well that the personal life of a dead person should no longer be talked about, but the matters concerning principles. Actually, today, despite the fact that Darwin had long been dead, he is still talked about.
People still talk about the good and the bad things that he did. And the same thing happens to many of the prominent men who had passed away and one of them is Mr. Felix Manalo, who became known, not only in this country, but also in some other parts of the world that had been reached by the preaching of the INC.
We will try to confirm from the Bible if he was really a messenger of God. You see, Mr. This claim could be read on p. And this was written by a certain Joaquin Balmores. In that write up, they were claiming that the angel ascending from the east was nobody else but Mr. In one of its issues, they claimed that Mr. They took so many titles from the Bible and ascribed them to Mr. But in fairness to him, we shall not explain these matters based on our opinion only. At least, even if we cannot talk to each other face to face on a debate, thru this, you can weigh both sides - theirs and ours.
We will read their publications, and we will refute their claims by referring to what the Bible says. For them, Mr.
Ang Dating Daan of Bro Eli Soriano
Felix Manalo is a messenger because he built a church, and this is the INC. Somebody once accused the Ang Dating Daan, in a letter, of maligning Mr.
Manalo when we said that he built a church. But our statement was based on a document, which was a certified true copy of their registration to the Securities and Exchange Commission. Atanacio Morte. If you were going to consult Mr. Manalo did not build a new church. On the other hand, their registration stated that Mr.
Manalo was the founder of their church. Besides, while stanza two denied that Mr. Manalo built a new church, stanza four was contradicting it. In other words, what they were referring to, here, is their own church. That is what they regarded as the true church. They were referring to their church.
But that is not right! Let us read what Ephe. Of course, to the church, which was preached by Mr. Manalo in the Philippines, and which, according to their registration, was founded by Mr. Let us repeat what their poem said. If what they said were true, it would appear that there are two bodies. But based on the Bible. God does not want the church to be two. We, Filipinos, are Gentiles. Let us read Ephe. And it is possible that another church would be built here in the Philippines.
We must join the body. What must we, who are living in this period, do? For instance, a house is already existing. So, you do not have to build another house. You only have to get inside the house. That cannot be! Just try to think about it. Remember what Ephe.
That is why the poem of Mr. While they claimed that Mr. Manalo did not build a new church, but only perpetuated the church of Christ, their registration stated that their church was founded by Mr. Their claim that their church is the true church, and Christ is its head, is wrong! If that is so, it would mean that there are now two bodies.
Let us read our basis.
Ang Dating Daan of Bro Eli Soriano Ang Dating Daan program aims to propagate the true and everlasting Gospel of Christ based on the Bible, convert sinners to believe and glorify God. Only the Church can teach the wisdom of God in the salvation of mankind. The Ang Dating Daan program debuted on IBC 13 in , and quite miraculously at that. The full production team consisted of only three persons: Bro. Eli, the host (and cook); Bro. Daniel (who was still in high school then), the director, editor, and every other technical need; and Sis. Luz Cruz, the executive producer, researcher and makeup artist.

Whoever builds another church are an anti-Christ, anti-Bible, anti-Apostle, and anti-God. There is no need to build another church. Now, let us proceed to our main concern. Let us find out if Mr. We will not be hasty in our conclusion that he is, or he is not, a messenger of God.
Let us give him the benefit of the doubt. Let us presume that he is really a messenger of God. First of all, let me give you a background on how the Bible introduces true messengers of God.
Let us find out how their role, as messengers, began. This is what St. To reveal his Son in me, that I might preach him among the heathen; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood. Their tasks begin from the womb. Then said I, Ah, Lord God! Behold, I cannot speak; for I am a child. But the Lord said unto me, Say not, am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall speak. Our question is when did Mr. Manalo begin as a messenger?
I will share with you a little background on the life of Mr. This is not my concoction. It was published in their Pasugo Yearbook. Naging mahalaga siyang tagapagpalaganap ng relihiyong ito. Kasalukuyan siyang nagtatagumpay sa kanyang mga gawain sa relihiyon nang ang kanyang asawa ay namatay. Pinangatawanang lalo ng ebanghelista ang kanyang gawain. He became a vital instrument in the propagation of this religion. While he was succeeding in his religious works, his wife passed away.
The better the evangelist assumed his responsibility. Noong ay nangibig si Felix at naging karapatdapat siya sa pagtatangi ng kaibig-ibig na dalagang si Honorata de Guzman, na naninirahan noon sa Avenida Rizal, Maynila.
And in one drizzling afternoon, a day before the twenty-seventh birthday of the evangelist, the lovers got married in Singalong, and their wedding was officiated by a pastor, Emiliano Quijano, of Christian and Missionary Alliance. From there, the newlyweds proceeded to Malolos, Bulacan because that was where the evangelist was assigned.
Please take note that Mr. Manalo was once a member of the Seventh Day Adventists.
But when he got married, the pastor who officiated their wedding was from the Christian and Missionary Alliance. Why are we mentioning these things? To malign the person of Mr. We are only looking back to history. They were wedded by a pastor from the Christian and Missionary Alliance when he was a member of the Seventh Day Adventist, the church that prohibits the eating of pork.
But before he became a member of this church, he was a member of another church. Let us read a part of the narration.
Mayroon silang lalong mabubuting pamamaraan kaysa mga Metodista. They had better procedures than that of the Methodists.
In other words, he used to be a member of the Methodists. Nagkalapit ang mga kalooban nila at itinuring ng mag-asawang di magkaanak na higit sa isang anak si Felix.
Ang mag-asawa ay umanib sa lahat ng mga relihiyong kinabibilangan ni Felix Manalo. Pagkaraan ng tatlong taon at kalahating pag-aaral sa mg Presbyteriano, natuklasan naman ni Manalo ang Christian and Missionary Alliance, kilala sa pangalang Disciples of Christ sa Amerika, at sa kanilang natatanging paraan ng pagbabautismo sa pamamagitan ng paglulubog sa tubig.
They became close to each other, and this childless couple treated Felix as their own son. This couple joined all the religions that Felix Manalo became a member of. After three and a half years of studying with the Presbyterians, Felix Manalo came to know the Christian and Missionary Alliance, which was better known in America as the Disciples of Christ.
They were also known for their unique baptism, which was immersion in water. Why am I reading all these? If you are the inquisitive type of a person, you might ask, why is it that, despite his being a member of the Seventh Day Adventists, when Felix Manalo got married, his wedding was officiated by a pastor from the Christian and Missionary Alliance. I will read to you an invitation. Sa ganap na ikawalo ng umaga a. Lubos ang aming pag-asa na pararangalan ng inyong pagharap ang nabanggit na pagdiriwang sa araw at oras na nabanggit.

If we are just going to think about it, if it is really forbidden to eat pork, then they must also forbid their members from raising hogs. How dare are these pastors who claim that eating pork is forbidden, yet, they get a portion from the sales of their hog-raiser members! We hope that you will be able to discern the real motives of your pastors. We are not maligning their persons; we are just telling the truth. And again, this thing is happening because these pastors have come up with their own interpretation of the Bible.
Bro. Eli: The Overall Servant
That is why, it is very risky to follow preachers who interpret the Bible by themselves, especially when it comes to money matters. Their explanation and their interpretation are motivated by their vested interests. No wonder they have become very rich! If you follow this kind of preachers, you are, in effect, risking your salvation! Prayer In Mat. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward. These hypocrites are fond of standing as they pray in synagogues and street corners because they want to be seen by people.
Otherwise, they will not merit any reward from God. This is written in Mat. This is the reason why, we can say that, what most of the religious organizations today are doing is wrong, especially those who have radio and television programs. They pray while in front of a television camera.
That is a clear manifestation of their hypocrisy. In other words, if praying, while standing up, in synagogues and street corners is already against the will of God, what more if you are going to pray over radio and television. God is employing a human being in order for His will to be fulfilled and that is the salvation of man. Our Lord Jesus Christ will bring two kinds of salvation, thru the Bible. At the time He assumed human form, He saved Israel from its sinfulness.
That was written in Mat. And, the Bible is teaching us how we can be one of those that our Lord Jesus Christ will save come judgment day. The first verse that we ought to pay attention to is Ephe.
Paul was reminding the Christians in Ephesus of their former conditions. And we, who are living at the present time, may also be called Gentiles if we are going to use the Bible as our basis. According to St. Paul, for the Gentiles to be a part of the salvation that comes from our Lord Jesus Christ, they have to be made parts first of the body. And only after that will they become partakers of a promise in Christ by the Gospel.
You will notice that St. The explanation to that may be read in Col. At this point, we must understand that the Gentiles, like us, must join the body, or the Church. And when we say that we must join the Church, it means that we no longer have to build any. We no longer have to establish our own church just for us to become partakers of a promise in Christ.
There was already an existing Church even before Paul was made apostle. Today, there are preachers who claim that another church had appeared in the Philippines. And according to them, this church was different from the one in Israel. If this is the case, it would appear that, despite the fact that there was already a church in Israel, another church appeared in the Philippines. As far as the Bible is concerned, such a belief is wrong because, according to St.
And the proof that there is only one body can be read in Col. Paul was addressing the brethren who, in the beginning were Gentiles, but were eventually called to one body. In other words, the body that the early Christians the Israelites made themselves a part of, is also the same body, or church, into which the Gentiles were being called upon to join. They also claim that another church had also been founded in the Philippines. The truth is, God did not give any right to anybody to build his own church.
It is indeed disgusting that today, a lot of ministers build churches of their own. They deliberately oppose and defy what the Bible said - that, the Gentiles, like us, must join or make ourselves a part of the body, or the Church, for us to be saved. And what is the reason why we must abide by it? It is because, as far as God is concerned, He did not give anybody His consent to build a church right now in our time. Let us now ask the Bible. And yet, he still manages to conduct more or less 10 Bible Expositions in four different languages a week; crossing states, countries, and time zones, be it physically or via satellite points or internet packets.
I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me. As the Lord continues to bless him with years, see the journey thus far of this preacher, philanthropist, broadcaster, Filipino who is and always will be, simply, Bro.
Eli Soriano. Young Bro. Eli grew up a shy child and would go to his room whenever there were guests in their house. Asking his parents about it, they told him that the medal was given to those who studied hard and got the highest grades. From not wanting to go to class to teaching it, Bro.
Eli became an assistant and substitute teacher in school. He was also a consistent valedictorian and no less than the president of the Student Council. Just a few weeks shy of graduating however, Bro. Eli found knowledge and wisdom unlike anything he has read from all his textbooks in class. He then stopped attending high school though his grade point average with untaken quizzes and exams at the time qualified him for graduation to learn a book whose words he had fallen in love with - the Bible.
Somehow, the shy guy inside Bro. Eli still had a bit of hold on him; whenever his parents would invite him to go with them to Church gatherings, he would decline. They were no longer tears of pain from being reprimanded however, but of repentance. Back at home, young Bro.MCGI-Singapore Visits NTUC Singapore for the Ang Dating Daan 39th Anniversary Celebration
He found it in the New Testament at 4 a. No dinner. No sleep. Days later despite the Presiding Minister not wanting to baptize Bro. Eli yet as he was deemed too young thenBro. Eli was born in the spirit on April 7,just three days after his 17th birthday in the flesh. Not long after being baptized, he expressed his desire to become a Church worker, and soon attended ministerial classes under Bro. Nicolas Perez. As time passed by, Bro. Eli would prove to be a one-of-a-kind worker.
Whichever locale he was assigned to, the brethren there would become more active and happier in their service to the Lord. He would become Bro. And later on, though unknown to the other workers and the brethren then, Bro. Perez trusted him to make the topics himself. Whenever there were debates against pastors of other religions, Bro. Eli was the choice of Bro. Perez amongst all. There he would conduct Bible studies with a young Bro.

Daniel Razon - town after town through flooded rice fields and no-vehicle areas, countless nights of little or no sleep or food - which by the mercy of God, later resulted to the first locales in the region being established. Seeing the grace given unto him, Bro. Perez handed Bro.
Eli in the only Church Minister title he would ever give to anyone before the former passed away in The death of Bro. Perez without him formally declaring a rightful successor brought about many problems, especially to Bro. The would-be leaders of their own future religions connived against him, which eventually led to the Church being divided into three.
Preaching in Pampanga for 14 years and reaching only a number of towns, Bro. Eli saw that he would need a hundred years or more just to be able to cover the entire Philippines using traditional medium. The show featured pastors and preachers from various religions to render their answers on questions and topics about life and the Bible. As voted by his fellow panelists and Don Manolo himself, Bro. Eli received the Most Outstanding Minister award year after year since he started there.
The program soon gained its steady following, what with hearing live questions of faith answered via the air waves - and three years after, it could also be seen. The full production team consisted of only three persons: Bro. Eli, the host and cook ; Bro. Daniel who was still in high school thenthe director, editor, and every other technical need; and Sis. Luz Cruz, the executive producer, researcher and makeup artist.
With such a setup, no sponsors, and a firm belief on not accepting any financial contribution from its non-members, how could the program survive one might ask? What would later further propel the Ang Dating Daan program began with an idea - or to be precise, a prayer. Daniel had a personal request from God, mainly, on being a small instrument in helping Bro. Eli bring the Gospel to a wider audience. During a meeting with Church workers, he spoke of an idea of inviting family and friends to a small gathering with a segment wherein Bro.
Eli could talk and they could ask him questions right there and then. That was to be the birth of The Bible Exposition. Eli became busier than ever.
Apart from his broadcast schedules on radio and television, Bro. Soriano also held Bible Expositions in different locations across the country from covered basketball courts, to stadiums and coliseums.
With the Internet opening a new of avenue to connect with people across the planet, Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel launched www. And just one year later, it featured a live video streaming service of The Old Path program.
