Failing the Prophet Test: Manalo is a False Prophet!

8/22/2015 , 557 Comments


Pronouncements of prophets sent by God are exact. They happen.

DEUTERONOMY 18:22 
When a prophet speaketh in the name of the LORD, if the thing follow not, nor come to pass, that is the thing which the LORD hath not spoken, but the prophet hath spoken it presumptuously: thou shalt not be afraid of him.

Pronouncements made in the name of the Lord that do not materialize are the sign of a false prophet.

It is like this: The fulfillment or the occurrence of a prophecy is a sign that the prophecy may have come from the Lord. There are even times that pronouncements of false prophets do happen by God's permission. It is God’s test of loyalty of His people, but never can an unfulfilled prophecy be of God.

DEUTERONOMY 13:1-3 
1 If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, 
2 And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spoke unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; 
3 Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.

So the emphasis is on the non-fulfillment.

We have a host of false prophets in our time proven by their unfulfilled pronouncements that serve as a false hope for their deceived followers! We introduce to you some of them.

1. Jehovah's Witnesses– on end of the world

All dates concerning Armageddon given by the WTBTS failed, thus proving that the leaders of the Jehovah's Witnesses are all false prophets!

“End of the World” Prophecies 1914 was one of the more important estimates of the start of the war of Armageddon by the Jehovah's Witnesses (Watchtower Bible and Tract Society). They computed 1914 from prophecy in the book of Daniel, Chapter 4. The writings referred to "seven times". The WTS interpreted each "time" as equal to 360 days, giving a total of 2520 days. This was further interpreted as representing 2520 years, measured from the starting date of 607 BCE. This gave 1914 as the target date. 1914, 1918, 1920, 1925, 1941, 1975 and 1994 were other dates that the Watchtower Society predicted. 1975 looked likely as it was computed as the 6000th anniversary of the creation of Adam in the Garden of Eden in 4026 BCE. They interpreted Psalms 90:10 as defining the length of a generation to be 80 years. Since 1914 plus 80 equals 1994, they predicted Armageddon would occur around that year. The latest estimate was 6000 years after the creation of Eve, for which no date can be determined with any accuracy. (http://www.preteristarchive.com/StudyArchive/t/theory_false-prophets.html)

2. Sabbath Day Adventists (SDA) – on Jesus coming

When the Lord Jesus Christ did not return on the date they expected him, Ellen G. White, the prophetess of the Seventh Day Adventist Church, even passed her “mistake” to God!


3. Mormons – For a New Jerusalem in Missouri

Allegedly it is a revelation from the Lord that the New Jerusalem will be established in the Western boundary of the state of Missouri now called Independence, and a temple will rise for the glory of the God of Mormons that never happened!


4. Apollo Carreon Quibuloy – Predicting who will be president of the Philippines for 2010

A Filipino false prophet overflowing with conceit and belief in himself claimed that he is "the appointed Son of God.” The founder and leader of the Philippines-based church, the Kingdom of Jesus Christ, The Name Above Every Name, Inc. said that a particular candidate would be the president of the Philippines. It never happened because this person was defeated in the 2010 Philippine national elections!!!



He also said that the author of this blog is doomed and will die after six months from the time of the revelation (February 6, 2005) that he allegedly received from the Lord. But thanks be to God after 10 years, yours truly is still alive. To God be the glory!


5. Harold Camping – on end of the world

Camping prophesied three times that the world will end in 1994, and twice in 2011, but all failed, thus proving that he is a false prophet.


6. Luis Miranda – on end of the world and other false claims

This false Christ said that the end will be on June 30, 2012 but failed! This is not just a false prophet. He claimed to be "Christ incarnate."


7. Pat Robertson – on end of the world

Robertson said judgment will come to the world by the end of 1982; it is now August 19, 2015.


8. Eraño Manalo and the Pasugo (The Message) 

Eraño Manalo said that the children of his church will remain steadfast in faith until the end. Six years after his death, his sons and daughters with his beloved wife were excommunicated and thrown out of his church by his very own son, Eduardo Manalo!

During the time of Felix Manalo, father of Eraño, and grandfather of Eduardo, the Pasugo predicted that after the preaching of Manalo, supposedly the "last messenger of God in the last days,” the judgment or the end of the world would come. Such pronouncement to a thinking person, like the author of this blog, is strikingly interesting, prompting him to do investigations about the teachings of this sect in the Philippines. The result is inevitably proving that writers of the Pasugo and the ones dictating them are all false prophets!

(After Felix dies, then will come the judgment. No messenger follows).


Here is an excerpt of the verbatim pronouncement of Eraño Manalo, son of Felix and second generation Executive Minister, that every Iglesia ni Cristo member heard and believed, implanting in their hearts a false hope!

"JEREMIAS 32:39-40" [Eraño Manalo’s voice translated from Tagalog]

And I will give them one heart in one way, so that they will fear me forever, for their own good…

Just us?

And their children when they die ----

What will God do?

And I will make a covenant with them forever that I will not leave them but will do them good: And I will place in them fear of me so that they won’t leave me

What will God do to his children from now on?

God said, I will give them one heart, one way so that they will fear me forever; for their own good and for their children’s too.

And I will make a covenant with them, a covenant without an end. I will not leave them. I will do them good: I will place fear in their hearts that they might fear me so that they won’t leave me. That is how God loves this church and each of you.


But in social media sites, you can read them arguing. Some are leaving because of the recent controversy this church group has been embroiled in. Some have been expelled for spilling the beans in media. Those remaining are confused. Their leaders are accused of lavish lifestyles. The church is left with gargantuan debts. Their mammoth buildings like the Philippine Arena suck in much money just for maintenance alone but the members, most of them belonging to the Philippine poor, do not agree with the purpose it is being used for. Meanwhile, there have been accusations of politicians and the INC using each other and exchanging favor through the INC’s questionable practice of bloc voting.

They won’t be scattered anymore? Their expelled ministers and critics are calling for a movement (“kilusan”) against them despite threats on their life coming from within. They are scattered. Manalo failed the prophet test.

Eduardo Manalo, son of Eraño Manalo and the third generation Executive Minister, had expelled from their church group his very own mother and siblings. Before that, he was publicly believed not talking to his mother for six years, not even after videos released to the public that her life was in danger.

Farley de Castro, one of the expelled ministers said in the vernacular –

Why am I saying that we get no benefit? It can only be when the whole church is led and guided by the Lord Jesus. Isn’t it clear that you are not the Eduardo yourself managing the affairs of the different activities in the church? There are many that contravene the teachings of Christ. Lies are king, deception too. That is what obtains now in this [present] administration - because you are not the Bro. Eduardo anymore. (https://goo.gl/0EQcz3)

This minister blamed Babylyn Ventura Manalo, wife of Eduardo as interfering with management. The same with Glicerio B. Santos, Jr. the INC auditor and son of Felix by another wife.

Felix Manalo died but judgment did not come yet, contrary to Pasugo’s prophecy. Eraño Manalo prophesied that their children won’t be scattered anymore. But they are as scattered as scattered can be. They can’t be together.

How can we tell if a prophet is of God? A prophet sent by God is of God.

JOHN 7:17-18
17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself.
18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

A prophet sent by God and of God doesn’t speak of himself and seek his own glory. But Felix Manalo, the founder of the Iglesia ni Cristo, had many claims. He said no one will apostate, but consider the corruption charges being aired by his members now. He died but there was no judgment that came after his death, giving a false prophecy.

Let us look for the truth not in the material glory of a congregation like glorious buildings. They do not assure that you will learn God’s ways.

Let us look for the truth not in the number of adherents because practices like fraternal protection can attract adherents but will make you more evil.

Let us look for the truth not by the length of a group’s existence, remembering that human history is a witness to the centuries and millennia of the existence of false religions in this planet!

Let us look, guided by the Spirit of God, into the doctrines! Doctrines must follow God’s word – not just made up of a few select Bible verses and then cemented by man’s lore.

To my "kababayans,” hating me or cursing me will not do you any good. My work is to tell the truth, whether you believe me or not.

To my countrymen, pray that the Lord may guide you in your quest for truth. Be neutral and I believe you will see the light shining beyond the horizon of false hopes painted in your illusions by the false prophets who had victimized most of you.

May God bless you!

Bitter Truth Denied by INC Ministers & Members

8/13/2015 508 Comments


The book of Proverbs is outstanding among other books of the Bible in a sense that it tackles things according to the ordinary promptings of men. Very rarely does it speak of the extraordinary.

Proverbs 29:12 says -

PROVERBS 29:12 
If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked.

To be inclined to hearing lies means something very grave according to the word of God!

II THESSALONIANS 2:11 
And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:

Listening to lies is caused by something – delusion. Delusion is, in a sense, a mental disorder! Biblically, the word used is πλάνη (plan'-ay), meaning “under strong sense of error.” But you will notice that delusion can also come from God.

Iglesia ni Cristo Ministers - even some of those who complained of injustice after they were excommunicated - say "Ka Eduardo is a good man; it is the ‘Sanggunian’ or the Council that is corrupt!”

Whether they are saying this out of fear or because of a hidden intention “to be accepted again,” only the Almighty knows!

But it is injustice to the Sanggunian to be blamed for an action that only the leader can approve of! The bitter truth - if they can accept the word of God – is that their leader is the one corrupt according to the Bible! Why so? From listening to lies!

It is a well-emphasized doctrine of the INC that their leader is a "Sugo,” someone sent by God, whose decision is sanctioned by heaven, using as basis the word of the Lord Jesus Christ that says -

MATTHEW 18:18 
Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

The history of the INC proves that from Felix to Eraño “Erdy” and to Eduardo, the final decision in every aspect of their faith is the decision of the "Tagapamahalang Pangkalahatan" or the "Executive Minister,” believing that they are representatives of heaven on earth. Lessons and circulars implemented in their church are signed by Manalo as the approving officer.

The circular below about the suspension and expulsion of some members was signed by Felix Manalo, first generation Presiding or Executive Minister.


All alleged corruptions about the INC being revealed now are being blamed on the Sanggunian or Council to save the face of their "Sugo" or leader! But analyzing it from the biblical point of view, nobody else must be responsible in any organizational upheaval except the leader.

The silence of Manalo letting all blame fall upon his Sanggunian is not only a mark of weakness, but of a leader under strong delusion.

But is it true that he is listening to the lies being relayed to him by the Sanggunian? Proverbs 29:12 says, "If a ruler hearken to lies, all his servants are wicked." In the biblical context of this verse, this leader is not listening to men or the Sanggunian but to the "father of lies,” Satan!

JOHN 8:44 
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.

Note the phrase, "when he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own." The “he” in John 8:44 is the devil. He is the father of lies.

Those that are of Satan listen to him because he is their father.

A leader that is of God will not listen to lies even if the one speaking it is his wife! Job, a righteous man, did not listen to his wife!

JOB 2:9-10 
9 Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die. 
10 But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.

A daughter-in-law, most of the time, is a customary enemy of a father and a mother-in-law. Few exceptions are Ruth and Noemi.

RUTH 1:15-17 
15 And she said, Behold, thy sister-in-law is gone back unto her people, and unto her gods: return thou after thy sister-in-law. 
16 And Ruth said, Entreat me not to leave thee, or to return from following after thee: for whither thou goest, I will go; and where thou lodgest, I will lodge: thy people shall be my people, and thy God my God: 
17 Where thou diest, will I die, and there will I be buried: the LORD do so to me, and more also, if aught but death part thee and me.

What is common is what the Lord Jesus Christ said, that a man’s foes shall be those of his own household.

MATTHEW 10:34-36 
34 Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. 
35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. 
36 And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

Satan and his demons dictate evil to men of authority or leaders.

REVELATION 16:14 
For they are the spirits of devils, working miracles, which go forth unto the kings of the earth and of the whole world, to gather them to the battle of that great day of God Almighty.

A leader is vulnerable to attacks of Satan and demons, just like Peter, a leader of Jewish Christians, was fervently desired to be attacked by Satan.

LUKE 22:31-32 
31 And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat: 
32 But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

Paul, the leader of Gentile Christians, was also a favorite target of Satan.

II CORINTHIANS 12:7 
And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.

But in spite of the constant attacks of Satan on the leaders of the First Century Christian church, unimaginable corruption such as the corruption happening within the INC had never happened under the jurisdiction of these leaders who are real "Sugo"!

There was no Christian recorded in the Bible, who "feared for their lives" from among their community.

Now, ministers and members who spoke against corruption in the INC fear for their lives, the threats not coming from other religious groups but from among themselves!

What is the deep logic in these pronouncements coming from the mouth of the siblings and the very mother of the leader of the INC? "Nanganganib ang aming buhay!" (Our lives are in danger).

Even the ministers who spoke against corruption in their church say "Nanganganib ang aming buhay!” Below are Angel Manalo, the very own brother of Eduardo Manalo, the incumbent Executive Minister; and their mother, Ka Tenny.




“Of course, I fear. I would not be myself if I say I am not afraid.”

Above is Isaias Samson, former Editor of Pasugo and INC minister, expelled the following day after a news conference. He claimed he was held against his will but was able to escape. He was suspected as the blogger, Antonio Ramirez Ebanghelista, that exposed corruption within the Iglesia ni Cristo. 

Now, I am truly vindicated. Notice that these are their very own people. Thanks be to God Almighty, that I am not a coward as the INC says!

When I left the Philippines, I left not because of fear for my life but for the life of my brethren in faith - to spare them from the vicious threats of the INC even using government officials against us. 

In one forum, this was posted (Translated from Tagalog) -

FORUMS:
WHY DOESN’T SORIANO HAVE THE COURAGE TO GO HOME TO THE PHILIPPINES NOW THAT HIS FLOCK IS BURSTING? THAT IS ONE OF THE MANY REASONS WHY THE LEADER OF THE ADD CANNOT RETURN! EVEN THE ADD MEMBERS ARE SURPRISED AND NEVER THOUGHT THAT THEIR LEADER HAS A CASE LIKE THIS ONE.


Above photo shows the flagrant use of government agencies against citizens. On a simple case of libel filed by the Iglesia ni Cristo against Bro. Eli Soriano, the ADD Convention Center was raided in the night of February 1 up to the early morning the following day. The National Bureau of Investigation Director at that time was Reynaldo Wycoco, an Iglesia ni Cristo member.

The photo below was where INC ministers were talking in their program, Ang Tamang Daan, at Net25 what will happen when Bro. Eli comes back to the Philippines. As a royal guest, he would be met at the airport, there would be rolled carpet on the floor, peanuts would be free. And their friend Amurao would be asked to take charge.

But Amurao has a funeral parlor and so the suggestion quite points to death wish among these INC ministers talking.



These things are very easy to discern. All of them speak of one thing: Say something against the INC and you have all reasons to fear for your life!

Speak against Christ and it is a light offense.

But speak against their leaders at your own risk!

These people who say that they fear for their own lives know the kind of organization the INC’s have!

I hope you are wise enough to read between paragraphs! God bless you!

Gravity Floating Up All Secrets of Secrets

8/05/2015 702 Comments


Gravity pulls things towards the bottom, but it is marvelous that gravity through the "law of gravity" may make things take the opposite direction – up high!!! Isn’t that marvelous?

There is no gravitational action on earth that, instead of bringing an object down, will bring it upwards. This phenomenon of bringing objects upwards can be considered extra-terrestrial! Imagine, somebody disconnecting himself from the earth and from earthly things. This is only possible to a true Christian!

THE ROMANS 12:2 
And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Although it is difficult to attain, it is a Christian doctrine that a person detach himself from what is earthly, or of the earth.

COLOSSIANS 3:1-3 
1 If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. 
2 Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. 
3 For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.

It is a gravitational pull coming from heaven that may detach a person from all attractions on earth and that is the pull of faith in God!

There are forces - literal and extra-terrestrial - that enable a thing from the ground to attain heights and free itself from the forces of the gravitational pull on earth. Science says the gravitational pull of the Sun makes the edges of the earth bulge, and the Moon's gravitational pull makes high tide on oceans and seas on earth. That’s terrestrial. Here’s what Universetoday.com says -

Is the Earth Round? 
The actual shape of the Earth is actually an oblate spheroid – a sphere with a bulge around the equator. The Earth is bulged at its equator because it’s rapidly rotating on its axis. The centripetal force of the rotation causes the regions at the equator to bulge outward.

Back to forces that can bring matters down below, there’s the possibility of an opposite force that make matters go upward and surface. What is obtaining now with the Iglesia ni Cristo ni Manalo is that in spite of their indoctrinated secrecy of what they do, a force from above is making those secrets surface. Undoubtedly, it is the power of God! That group has long been practicing the act of covering up ugly matters inside their church, of bringing them down, and layering them into secrecy.

But what they did to five PUP students in secret, for example, came out. The case said their members involved mangled the victims’ bodies at the basement of their chapel. The dead bodies floated and were fished out from the muddy Pasig River!!!!

Here’s an excerpt from Supreme Courts Annotated, Volume 339, August 28, 2000 on the case People vs. Abella. In an attempt to flush the killing off, the river was the supposed solution. But the bodies floated up to witness against the killers.


… Meanwhile, at about 6:00 p.m., inside the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC), Sta. Ana compound in Bacood, ELENA Bernardo was waiting for Pastor Cesar Almedina to seek his advice regarding her son-in-law’s problem. Pastor Almedina asked her to wait, and she did so. She waited until 10:00 p.m. Suddenly the guard switched off the lights inside the compound. With only the MERALCO light illuminating the compound from outside, she saw a dirty white Ford Fiera loaded with passengers enter and park in front of the pastoral house near the path leading to the basement. JOEY, GENER, all the accused and the victims were inside the van. Four of the victims were made to alight from the van, while the fifth one lay on the floor of the vehicle as though dead. The victims were brought to the basement, which was at the back of the chapel and beneath the choir office. ELENA followed. Inside the basement the victims were continually mauled, whipped with a gun, and beaten with steel tubes, lead pipes and other blunt instruments. One of the victims was tied with wire. Filemon Garcia arrived with a blowtorch and also entered the basement. ELENA heard the victims beg for mercy. Unable to endure the sight she sat in front of the chapel and stayed for 30 minutes. Pastor Almedina arrived and told her that they would talk about her problem at another time. Afterwards the victims were herded back to the Fiera. They seemed almost dead.[16]

On 10 March 1992, at 8:45 a.m., the lifeless body of FELIX was found floating on the Pasig River near Beata-Tawiran in Pandacan. At 12:25 p.m., ERWIN’s body was retrieved from the same river at the back of the Sta. Ana market. At about the same time, the decomposing bodies of ANDRES, MARLON and JOSEPH were also fished out of the Pasig River near Lambingan Bridge.[17] (http://sc.judiciary.gov.ph/jurisprudence/2000/aug2000/127803.htm)

What about me? I was their fiercest critic – even until now. In their vain attempt to discredit and destroy my person, they ordered their ministers to discreetly distribute comics or magazines depicting me as an evil and lascivious person. That information came out when a minister of their ranks confessed to me their underground mission.

Before submitting himself to baptism in the Church of God International, he gave me this proof that I am excerpting here. Take note of VI.7. Order from Central. “Get comics and share them discreetly.” Why discreetly? Because it came from them!


Learning from their Forebears
The unimaginable corruption in them was made public when a minister handed me several pieces of DVD's. This minister does not anymore believe in them but is still with them because of fear for his life and his family. The contents were sermons of Eraño Manalo and one of them was attacking his ministers of corruption and misdeeds in a special ministerial meeting or worship service!


These things contained in the DVD were never denied by their ministers in television, but instead accepted as the very words of their "tagapamahalang pangkalahatan" or "executive minister." These and many more are being manifested by a force that repels the gravitational pull on earth that is in the hands of the god of this world.

II CORINTHIANS 4:4
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

Can we say this is like the Cambrian Period where it is said there is a massive explosion of revelation? (Note: I do not believe in the Cambrian Period being an explosion).

The Cambrian Period
The Cambrian Period marks an important point in the history of life on Earth; it is the time when most of the major groups of animals first appear in the fossil record. This event is sometimes called the "Cambrian Explosion," because of the relatively short time over which this diversity of forms appears. It was once thought that Cambrian rocks contained the first and oldest fossil animals, but these are now found in the earlier Ediacaran (Vendian) strata. http://www.ucmp.berkeley.edu/cambrian/cambrian.php

The truth is every species came into existence simultaneously with its kind with a knit pattern of symbiotic existence, making me dismiss every idea of evolution! How can a lion survive when its food is yet to evolve with it? The truth is every species exists, in turn providing a way of existence for others.

GENESIS 1:24-25
24 And God said, Let the earth bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.
25 And God made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creepeth upon the earth after his kind: and God saw that it was good.

We cannot say that corruption in the Iglesia ni Cristo ni Manalo evolved! What is true in the Cambrian Period is collaterally true with the INC of Manalo. Since its inception, there are the corrupt practices of its ministers! It is proven by the very words of Eraño Manalo, second generation Executive Minister, that the corruption among the present generation of his ministers was inherited from ministers pioneering their works of corruption! It was earlier proven by a circular signed by Felix Manalo, first generation Executive or Presiding Minister, himself revealing the corrupt practices of his pioneering ministers.

Below is a circular read June 3, 1937 (May 27, 1937) signed by Felix Manalo from the address, 42 Broadway New Manila, San Juan, Rizal, Philippine Islands. Written in Tagalog, the following are to lose their rights of being Church workers for not giving value to their calling and for their neglect of their responsibilities: Norberto Cruz, Antonio Macasiano, Bienvenido Castro, Simplicio Elizaga and Fortunato Lozano.

The following are also to be sanctioned: Vivencio Cosico for cash advancing more than he is receiving; Fortunato San Esteban and Joaquin Balmores for their excessive cash-advance and deceitful “okay,” twice done in one setting; Cirilo Gonzales not only for cash advancing but for unrightfully exercising his functions as a helper of the Administration and for claiming excessive rights attached to it.

Felix Ortiz is excommunicated for deceit in borrowing money from the brethren and pointing to the Administration as guarantor; Antonio Collantes is also excommunicated for compromising the name of the Office-in-Charge in Laguna division to get money from the National Treasury, and secondly for taking advantage over the innocence of a young lass in order to elope with her.

The circular further said those excommunicated that are Joaquin Balmores, Cirilo Gonzales, Felix Ortiz, and Antonio Collantes are not to be permitted to attend church services even outside the residences, not to be shown mercy, not to be accommodated nor welcomed in the homes of members.


WHAT IS HAPPENING NOW?

Is it a test of faith? Or is it a revelation from God?

MATTHEW 24:35
Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

And why did I keep examining their doctrines? Why don’t I keep my mouth shut? Christ said:

MATTHEW 10:27-28
27 What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetops.
28 And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.

It is my business to talk and shout about what I am commissioned to do. Every program aired by the Church of God International throughout the world comes from "housetops" via satellite and television. It became so partly because I am always under constant threat from the Iglesia ni Manalo. I speak the "truth upon the housetops!” Because of their capricious persecutions against my person, they are the very same reason I left the Philippines, my beloved country. It was to avoid physical conflicts and bloodshed.

Now, I am fully convinced that what I cannot divulge in obedience to the command of the Lord Jesus Christ, it is and has been divulged by the power of God!

The very siblings and mother of the man who caused injustice to my person with the connivance of the corrupt Philippine officials in the regime of a president tagged by the Asia Pulse Survey as "The Most Corrupt of All Philippine Presidents” are now serving as "hostile witnesses" to my favor!

Here are the brother and mother of Eduardo Manalo, the incumbent Executive Minister of the Iglesia ni Cristo -
 
Manalo brother hits Iglesia ni Cristo 'corruption' 'Nasira na ang doktrina ng Iglesia ni Cristo,' Angel Manalo says, after his brother Eduardo expelled him from the 100-year-old church.


http://www.rappler.com/nation/100304-manalo-brother-iglesia-cristo-corruption



Here’s about Gloria Macapagal Arroyo who would have me imprisoned at the beckoning of the INC. In “GMA found most corrupt president” written by Regina Bengco (Malaya 12/12/2007), a survey conducted from Oct. 20 to 31 by Pulse Asia showed that almost one of two Filipinos believe that President (Arroyo) is the "most corrupt (president) in the history of the Philippines.”

The survey, which had 1,200 respondents, had a margin of error of plus/minus 6 percent. Forty-two percent of respondents tagged Arroyo as the "most corrupt" president, followed by Ferdinand Marcos (35 percent), Joseph Estrada (16 percent), Fidel Ramos (5 percent), and Corazon Aquino (1 percent). The perception of Arroyo as the most corrupt was highest in Metro Manila (50 percent) and Luzon (50 percent), the elite Class ABC (50 percent), and Class D (43 percent). (http://www.malaya.com.ph/dec12/news1.htm).

Where is Gloria Arroyo now? Everyone knows where she is now.


(Vote-rigging charges against Arroyo. http://english.sina.com/world/p/2011/1121/416344.html)

I am saying that 99 percent of all cases filed against me in court are inventions of the Iglesia ni Manalo, most of them using those I had excommunicated as either complainant or witness! One percent came from their friends.

Not all forces on earth can bring everything to the bottom to be covered. In contrast, there are forces from above the earth that bring them up to be revealed and secrets cannot be covered for long! God has finally seen fit to have me vindicated after all those lies and many lies. So now we notice this kind of gravity – extra-terrestrial at that – floating up secrets of all secrets.

We really cannot hide anything in this life. We cannot bully everyone all the time. There is a Great Equalizer that sees everything happening. He will not allow evil to forever continue.

Those who revel in temporary power and temporary pleasure will learn their lessons the hard way. There is really a god of this world who works through the children of disobedience. But for those who can be patient and let the Almighty God handle things, they can finally see the promise of God when the right time comes. All secrets hidden through force and trepidation will float - exposed by this gravity!

May God bless the Philippines!

Truly yours,

Brother Eli Soriano

Iglesia Ni Cristo on Trial or Covering-Up For a Weak Leader?

8/01/2015 741 Comments


The gravest sin a Christian can commit is speaking against the Holy Ghost. The Lord Jesus Christ said it is unpardonable!

MATTHEW 12:32 
And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

Use of words in contrast to what is meant by Christ and contrary to His nature is unpardonable. Instead of saying that Christ heals through the power of the Holy Spirit, His enemies said that He casts out demons through Beelzebub, the prince of demons!

MATTHEW 12:24-32 
24 But when the Pharisees heard it, they said, This fellow doth not cast out devils, but by Beelzebub the prince of the devils. 
25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand: 
26 And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?
27 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your children cast them out? therefore they shall be your judges. 
28 But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you. 
29 Or else how can one enter into a strong man's house, and spoil his goods, except he first bind the strong man and then he will spoil his house. 
30 He that is not with me is against me; and he that gathereth not with me scattereth abroad. 
31 Wherefore I say unto you, All manner of sin and blasphemy shall be forgiven unto men: but the blasphemy against the Holy Ghost shall not be forgiven unto men. 
32 And whosoever speaketh a word against the Son of man, it shall be forgiven him: but whosoever speaketh against the Holy Ghost, it shall not be forgiven him, neither in this world, neither in the world to come.

The truth is Christ is casting out demons through the agency of the Holy Spirit but His enemies instead said it is through Beelzebub, which clearly shows a change of word for a biblical term.

It is not even euphemism that means replacing one word or phrase with one that is more friendly or less offensive. It is a change due to lack of understanding or spiritual inspiration. Or is it plain cover-up?

What is happening now within the Iglesia ni Cristo-Manalo is being termed by their ministers as "pagsubok" or "trial." And nobody seems to be concerned about this blatant misuse of biblical term. Let us analyze biblically the meaning of the word "pagsubok" or "trial."

Trial comes to a servant of God “at a time when he is at faith and trusting in God." To a servant of God, trial does not come amidst troubles and problems. What comes to him amidst problems is consolation and fortification of the Holy Spirit, not "trials!"

MATTHEW 26:41 
Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

The coming of the Holy Spirit augments the weaknesses of our flesh for us to pass through these trials.

THE ROMANS 8:26 
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.

The trial of faith came to Abraham at the time when he was more than "content" with his God-given son, Isaac, whom he waited for almost a century!

HEBREWS 11:17-19 
17 By faith Abraham, when he was tried, offered up Isaac: and he that had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, 
18 Of whom it was said, That in Isaac shall thy seed be called: 
19 Accounting that God was able to raise him up, even from the dead; from whence also he received him in a figure.

GENESIS 22:12 
And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.

All heroes of faith experienced trials in times when they are "most content and happy.”

HEBREWS 11:1-2, 36, 39-40 
1 Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. 
2 For by it the elders obtained a good report. 
36 And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: 
39 And these all, having obtained a good report through faith, received not the promise: 
40 God having provided some better thing for us, that they without us should not be made perfect.

What is happening now with the Iglesia ni Manalo is not a "trial of faith" or "pagsubok." It is rather the fulfillment of the words of God that says nothing hid shall not be revealed.

MATTHEW 10:26 
Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known.

There is a strong cover up according to reliable sources, since the death of Eraño Manalo, the former chief executive.

Joy Yuson: "Nagsimula noong 2009 pa lang, nang mamatay na ang Kapatid na Eraño G. Manalo ay nanalangin po ako sa kapulungan na kung maaari ay iligtas ang pamilya ng Kapatid na Eraño G. Manalo sa mga taong masasama sapagkat noon pa lang sa panahong yun ay sinisimulan na po nilang apihin ang pamilya ng Kapatid na Eraño G. Manalo. Dahil sa panalangin ko pong iyon ako po ay iniulat at pinasiyahan po akong alisin sa opisina." 
(00:50-01:24)


(It started in 2009 when Bro. Eraño G. Manalo died that I prayed before the congregation that the family of Bro. Eraño G. Manalo be saved from evil people because even at that time they started maltreating the family of Bro. Eraño G. Manalo. For my prayers, I was reported and then removed from office).

Based upon broadcasted interviews of some INC ministers, there appears a cover up of corruption and misdeeds beyond imagination! Imagine, a leader excommunicating his own mother and siblings without even an attempt at reconciliation! Imagine many years – five years – of not speaking with one’s own mother. Videos prove that the family are seeking an audience with their beloved son and brother but there’s no response! HOW CRUEL CAN A LEADER GET?!!

What a suspended minister said is heartbreaking but true! "How can anybody lead the church when he is not able to lead his own family?"

I TIMOTHY 3:5 
(For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

Here’s the poor mother speaking to her son -

Tenny Manalo: "At sa aking anak na si Eduardo, sana makausap kita." 
(01:35 - 01:44)


(And to my son, Eduardo, I hope to speak with you).

And here’s the brother pleading to his brother, Eduardo Manalo –

Angel Manalo: "Kuya, kung nasaan ka man, sana magkausap na tayo. Hindi lang kaming magkakapatid kundi higit sa lahat ang ating ina. Ang Mommy, sana makausap mo na. Sabik na sabik siya." 
(00:13 - 00:25)


(Brother, wherever you are, I wish we could talk – not just with us, your siblings – but most of all, with our mother. She is anxious about you).

And here’s a minister hitting the nail on the head -

Roel Rosal: "Paano siya makakapamahala sa Iglesia kung pamilya niya di niya kayang pamahalaan?" 
(00:53 - 01:09)



(How can he [Eduardo Manalo] govern the church if even his family he cannot govern?)

It is unimaginable to learn that even their own minister would get into hot water and later expelled just because he prayed for the safety of the family of the late leader! It is unimaginable to think that the cover up is so tight that the truth is being hidden by almost everybody to save the face of their leader.

A number of INC ministers were reported abducted and then the National Bureau of Investigation declared it “case closed” fast without investigation. That was a quick one said the Philippine Daily Inquirer (PDI), in its editorial titled “Scandal in INC” (7/30/2015). Notice how this broadsheet put it -

….Because this case involves the INC, whose connections to influential people in the government are both well-known and said to be cultivated by the church itself, it’s not unreasonable to think that some forces are trying to close the lid on any inquiry to prevent further damaging revelations. Last Tuesday, four INC ministers came forward to deny they had been abducted.

Is this an internal matter that government scrutiny is not welcome? PDI says otherwise because, as stated by one of those allegedly expelled INC ministers, in exchange for the bloc vote of INC members there is extortion of money by politicians and government officials -

But the sordid disclosures emerging from a growing number of disaffected former church members, some of them previously highly placed and privy to the INC’s most confidential operations, have touched on something else that has immense significance to public policy and governance: the alleged extortion of money from politicians and government officials in exchange for the coveted bloc vote of INC members.

Eduardo Manalo, as Executive Minister, truly has the final say or decision about everything in the church, a "corporation sole."The Corporation Code of the Philippines [Batas Pambansa Bilang 68] Title XIII, Chapter 2 on Religious Corporations reflects the following among others–


In the Amended Articles of Incorporation of the Iglesia ni Cristo, Eduardo Manalo, as the presiding minister of the INC that is corporation sole, is understood to be the trustee of the properties among others of the religious group.



Can a property be sold without the knowledge of the highest official of the corporation sole? No! The Amended Articles of Incorporation of the Iglesia ni Cristo states that disposition of any or all assets of the church including real properties may only be effected under the sole and exclusive authority of the Executive Minister or Presiding Elder acting as the corporation sole.

Here are recent sold properties of the Iglesia ni Cristo (Ref: Antonio Ebangelista, INCsilentnomore.wordpress.com)


It appears from the Deed of sale that on December 11, 2014, Glicerio P. Santos, Head Legal Counsel for the Church and son of the General Auditor, Glicerio Santos Jr., sold 4 parcels of land in Antipolo City to a company called Pet- jatan Corp for P16.896 million. Acopy of the Deed of Sale shows the younger Santos signing as Vendor. Did Eduardo Manalo know about this? It only shows his incompetence and ignorance, if he claims otherwise.

Can something be bought or built without the knowledge of the President of the corporation sole? Impossible. The Articles of the Church points to the sole and exclusive authority of Eduardo Manalo. Did he know about the Philippine Arena, its construction and purpose? His brother Angel questions its existence. He wonders how come it materialized.

Angel Manalo: "Isa na ang Philippine Arena sa ipinagtataka ko kung bakit nabuo eh." 
(01:19 - 01:59)

What about the luxury airbus costing P8.8 - P11 billion? Since Eduardo is using this together with the Sanggunian in his trips abroad, it is impossible that he does not know how it came about.

INC leaders using planes worth billions of pesos? http://www.rappler.com/newsbreak/investigative/100445-iglesia-leaders-billions-pesos-aircraft EXCLUSIVE: The price of a huge Airbus ranges from P8.8 billion to P11 billion, while an executive jet costs about P3.6 billion. This aircraft is being used by the Iglesia executive minister in his pastoral and personal trips abroad, Rappler learns.


It is unimaginable to think that in an organization with 70-80 percent of members living below the poverty line, they are being asked almost every gathering to give "tanging handog" or do "special offering" aside from the indoctrinated contributions and offerings they accepted before joining their church.

Angel Manalo, the brother of Eduardo, claims these projects are not necessary.

Angel Manalo: "Sapagkat nauubos na ang abuloy ng iglesia sa kung anu-anong mga proyektong hindi naman kailangan." 
(01:00 - 01:08)



(Because the contributions in the Church are being depleted - going to projects that are not even needed).

In the message of the allegedly expelled INC ministers, who are brave enough to speak against their leaders, it is plain and simple to see that their poor members are trying very zealously to help sustain the caprices of a leader that board his own airbus and jet and whose money are being used by him and his "Sanggunian" in luxurious living.

In a news report, Angel Manalo speaking with press people was shown pleading and asking his brother and/or church council to put a stop in asking additional contributions from their members because according to him (Angel Manalo) their existing contributions are sufficient to sustain the needs of their church.




MATTHEW 23:4 
For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.

An unimaginable injustice that the needy support the wants of someone having everything in life that can be bought with money! It is unimaginable to think that all these misdeeds are being blamed by almost everybody even the aggrieved parties on the "Sanggunian”(Council of Elders).

The cover up is being done to layer down the ugly face of the administration in the hands of an incompetent leader! The "Sanggunian" or the “Council” in every angle of definition and analysis in Tagalog and in any other language cannot be more powerful than the leader. And why not? Because supposedly he acts for the corporation sole.

I appreciate the courage of ministers like Isaias Samson Jr., Joy Yuson, Roel Rosal, Louie Cayabyab, Gino Maningas, Ka Tenny, and brothers Angel and Marc Manalo in revealing what they know. But I am not happy that they are ones covering up the real truth.

The fault is not in their "Sanggunian!" The fault is in their leader – an incompetent leader weak in principle - who happens to be the son of their father, and who expelled his own mother, and his own brothers and sister.

What is happening now is undoubtedly God's will that souls so concerned and are close observers may realize that the IGLESIA NI CRISTO-MANALO IS A FALSE CHURCH! Let Eraño Manalo, himself, describe his church in this video, in his own words -


Voice of Eraño G. Manalo: What is this letter of a brother? You might want me to read it to you. “Until now, I have not seen a church worker that is responsible in the history of my life. All of them are crooked!” Those words are hard to take. “This is seen in older ministers; this is seen in older church workers. So that was a way to make them appear good in the eyes of the Administration.”



What is happening right now, even as the Sanggunian threatens everyone that speaks like there is simply schism happening in the church, even as they try to shut up everyone’s mouth, even as the family tries to cover up the incompetence of their brother, God is opening the lid!

There is no pagsubok (trial) happening with them. God is revealing what kind of organization the INC is – one that has paraded itself for 100 years that it is a true church caring for the salvation of souls – but it is not.

This is one chance that God is uncovering the Iglesia ni Cristo for what it is. Not one whit is it interested in your salvation! It is merely interested in your money.

This organization has long been persecuting Brother Soriano and the Church of God International, filing case upon case of invented charges, using their influence in government. It is not a secret that this fact has caused much grief to the MCGI – has required much expense, not only financially but emotionally, causing unnecessary psychological stress.

But finally, this Iglesia ni Cristo is being exposed by the power of God. And those invented charges against Brother Soriano have effectively found their due course: a boomerang on them that have planned the pain meant to inflict harm and defamation to others.

PSALMS 7:15
He made a pit, and digged it, and is fallen into the ditch which he made.

PROVERBS 26:27
Whoso diggeth a pit shall fall therein: and he that rolleth a stone, it will return upon him.

Continue patronizing the INC and you will burn in hell like their ministers say of those who are not with them. Continue believing in its marketing strategy and you will only be feeding the stomachs of hungry vultures.

If Eduardo Manalo is a weak leader, let us be thankful that finally, that organization siphoning the meager income of the millions of Filipinos while they feed the luxurious lifestyles of ministers is revealed. It will be one less false church if it bows out finally.

Be very afraid to claim “pagsubok” or trial when something is breaking apart. This is God’s judgment at work. What God is revealing, don’t whitewash it to make it sound nice.
