Satan and his Influence: The Real Cause of Confusion

8/27/2016 171 Comments

While God Almighty is not a God of confusion, there is a god called the "god of this world" or "the god of this age" who is the cause of all evil confusions that besets humanity. This god is satan, God's archenemy.

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.

(Note that the word translated "world" in 2 Corinthians 4:4 is the word aiōn" in the original Greek language of the Scriptures.)

From the same as G104; properly an age; by extension perpetuity (also past); by implication the world...

Confusions in this age are caused by satan, the devil!

JAMES 3:16, 15 
16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. 
15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.

He insinuates war among leaders of nations.

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.

Battles or wars are caused by confusion and in the actual battles and wars, there are confusions! 

Where there is strife, there is confusion.

Apparently, the world now in this age is buried deep in confusion. Before an election, there is strife - a contest of mud-slinging, defamation, self-glorification, and lies. After election, there are protests about its results, turncoatism, opportunism, and influence-peddling. All these may result in loss of lives, money, honor and love between friends! These things have happened in the Philippines before and after the May Elections, and are now happening in the United States of America.

What is worse is struggle for power and pre-eminence.

The Bible describes a beast with seven heads. Seven that have to have their say.

And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.

The saying, "two heads are better than one," is neither biblical nor wise! The true church in the Bible has for its head, the Lord Jesus Christ.

And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

A church with seven heads will be struggling with confusions. There is only one head that we must acknowledge and adhere to in the true church of the Bible.

And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.

There is "one head" that is better than two or seven - that have to have their say.

Similarly, a government with three heads will be struggling with confusion! How scary can it be to see even a statue or a picture of a body with three heads trying to devour each other! There is then wisdom in a hierarchy – more so when it leads up to one - a God-centered structure.

But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.

A piece of (unsolicited) advice: Someone who knows his or her rightful place in the human society is a man. Anyone striving to be what he or she must not be is not a man!


Confusion in the Absence of Order

8/20/2016 , , 178 Comments

First there is order or peace, and then disorder or confusion may follow. There can be no confusion where there is first order and peace. When God is placed first and always, expect order to follow.

The word of God says, "God is not a God of confusion but of peace."

For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The word translated "confusion" in the English Bible is "akatastasia" which meanings are: instability, disorder, commotion, confusion, and tumult. These things are obviously observable worldwide. All these given meanings of the word translated as "confusion" are present in governments, religion, societies, and institutions of men!

From G182; instability, that is, disorder: - commotion, confusion, tumult.

There was confusion, instability, disorder, commotion, and tumult in the Catholic Church when three men claimed to be the pope in what was called the "Great Schism." There was also confusion in many other instances wherein there was contention of power among its leaders.

The Western Schism or Papal Schism was a split within the Roman Catholic Church which lasted from 1378 to 1417. Three men simultaneously claimed to be the true pope. Driven by politics rather than any theological disagreement, the schism was ended by the Council of Constance (1414–1418).


Confusion ensued when the Catholic Church was at the heights of its abuse of power selling forgiveness to its faithful members through the doctrine of "indulgences." One of its cardinals spoke about this against the church that signaled the start of the protestant movement.

In one of the forums talking about indulgence, the standard meaning attached to it from the Catholics who observe this practice is “like a gift you receive from doing something good. So think of going to confession, communion, prayers, et cetera as the good acts. In return, you receive the gift of the indulgence which in the church usually means time taken off from purgatory.” Here, there is confusion too.

It was confusion that resulted in the birth of the Church of England.

Church of England 
Henry VIII started the process of creating the Church of England after his split with the Pope in the 1530s. Henry was anxious to ensure a male heir after his first wife, Catherine of Aragon, had borne him only a daughter. He wanted his marriage annulled in order to remarry. In 1534 after several attempts to persuade the Pope to grant an annulment, Henry passed the Act of Succession and then the Act of Supremacy. These recognized that the King was "the only supreme head of the Church of England called Anglicana Ecclesia". Henry adopted the title given to him by the Pope in 1521, that of Defender of the Faith.


Confusion was also the same reason that caused enmity between supposed leaders and at times connivance between the Roman Empire and the emerging power of the papacy to maintain their grip of power.

WHAT WAS THE MAIN ISSUE BETWEEN POPE GREGORY VII AND EMPEROR HENRY IV? The main issue between the Pope and the Emperor was who had the right to appoint church officials in the Catholic Church. This time period was called the Investiture of Controversy. Prior to Pope Gregory VII taking office the common practice of many monarchs, including the preceding Holy Roman Emperor was to pick the high ranking church officials they wanted and placed them in office. Gregory wanted to put an end to that practice in 1074-1075, which he did end up doing. This forced the Holy Roman Empire into conflict with the Catholic Church, since many Catholic bishops essentially held "duchies" and "fiefdoms" of their own, so when Henry lost the power to name bishops he also lost control of just about half his lands.


Church and state in medieval Europe

The Church gradually became a defining institution of the Roman Empire.[1] Emperor Constantine issued the Edict of Milan in 313 proclaiming toleration for the Christian religion, and convoked the First Council of Nicaea in 325 whose Nicene Creed included belief in "one holy catholic and apostolic Church". Emperor Theodosius I made Nicene Christianity the state church of the Roman Empire with the Edict of Thessalonica of 380.[2]

After the fall of the Roman Empire in the 5th century, there emerged no single powerful secular governments in the West, but there was a central ecclesiastical power in Rome, the Catholic Church. In this power vacuum, the Church rose to become the dominant power in the West.


Confusion is also the reason why clergies did what they did, that removes the meaning of spirituality they had intended.

History tells us that the tormenting tentacles of the papacy were in Nicea in 325 CE…The Bishops under the popes, since then, kept on getting imperial treasury and influence at the courts. The members of the Catholic clergy manipulated political authority. Rampant corruption and immorality swept those lands. Soliciting sexual favours from female penitents allured the clergies for religious power and authority.


In modern times, this very spirit of confusion caused the two most devastating wars that humanity will never forget.

Meanwhile, the word translated in the American Standard Bible as "incest" from the word tebel and bâlal has also one of its meanings as "confusion."

Apparently from H1101; mixture, that is, unnatural bestiality: - confusion.

A primitive root; to overflow (specifically with oil); by implication to mix; also (denominative from H1098) to fodder: - anoint, confound, X fade, mingle, mix (self), give provender, temper.

Practically, incest is confusion! When affection and sexual attraction is felt between the nearest of kins, the persons involved are literally, spiritually and morally confused!

LEVITICUS 18:6-18 
6 None of you shall approach to any that is near of kin to him, to uncover their nakedness: I am the LORD. 
7 The nakedness of thy father, or the nakedness of thy mother, shalt thou not uncover: she is thy mother; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. 
8 The nakedness of thy father's wife shalt thou not uncover: it is thy father's nakedness. 
9 The nakedness of thy sister, the daughter of thy father, or daughter of thy mother, whether she be born at home, or born abroad, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover. 
10 The nakedness of thy son's daughter, or of thy daughter's daughter, even their nakedness thou shalt not uncover: for theirs is thine own nakedness. 
11 The nakedness of thy father's wife's daughter, begotten of thy father, she is thy sister, thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. 
12 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's sister: she is thy father's near kinswoman. 
13 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother's sister: for she is thy mother's near kinswoman. 
14 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy father's brother, thou shalt not approach to his wife: she is thine aunt. 
15 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy daughter-in-law: she is thy son's wife; thou shalt not uncover her nakedness. 
16 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy brother's wife: it is thy brother's nakedness. 
17 Thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter, neither shalt thou take her son's daughter, or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness; for they are her near kinswomen: it is wickedness. 
18 Neither shalt thou take a wife to her sister, to vex her, to uncover her nakedness, beside the other in her life time.

LEVITICUS 20:17-22 
17 And if a man shall take his sister, his father's daughter, or his mother's daughter, and see her nakedness, and she see his nakedness; it is a wicked thing; and they shall be cut off in the sight of their people: he hath uncovered his sister's nakedness; he shall bear his iniquity. 
18 And if a man shall lie with a woman having her sickness, and shall uncover her nakedness; he hath discovered her fountain, and she hath uncovered the fountain of her blood: and both of them shall be cut off from among their people. 
19 And thou shalt not uncover the nakedness of thy mother's sister, nor of thy father's sister: for he uncovereth his near kin: they shall bear their iniquity. 
20 And if a man shall lie with his uncle's wife, he hath uncovered his uncle's nakedness: they shall bear their sin; they shall die childless. 
21 And if a man shall take his brother's wife, it is an unclean thing: he hath uncovered his brother's nakedness; they shall be childless. 
22 Ye shall therefore keep all my statutes, and all my judgments, and do them: that the land, whither I bring you to dwell therein, spew you not out.

Here is a case of confusion: It is referred to as Genetic Sexual Attraction (GSA) relationship.

EXCLUSIVE: 'We ended up kissing and kissing led to other things': Mother, 36, and son, 19, who fell in love when they met last year after she gave him up for adoption as a baby, say they'll go to JAIL to defend their relationship

A mother and son whose forbidden love affair could land them each a lengthy jail sentence have declared they are 'madly in love' and nothing will tear them apart.

Monica Mares, 36, and her son Caleb Peterson, 19, face up to 18 months in prison if found guilty of incest at a trial later this year in New Mexico.

But the mother and son couple have vowed to fight for their right to have a sexual relationship and are appealing to the public to donate to their legal fund.

In an exclusive individual interviews with Daily Mail Online, they told how they are willing to risk everything to be together - and have decided to go public with their affair in a bid to raise awareness of Genetic Sexual Attraction (GSA) relationships.


Incest is not only committed with persons of near consanguinity but also with persons of whom one has no blood relationship but is the wife or husband of one’s relative in blood.

1 It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father's wife. 
2 And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.

If someone can commit incest with her daughter-in-law, more so when it is with his biological daughter.

'If there is a man who lies with his daughter-in-law, both of them shall surely be put to death; they have committed incest, their bloodguiltiness is upon them.

These things are obviously detestable and abominable but they really do exist among humanity!

But what is the cause of all these confusions, instability, disorder, commotion, and tumult?

More to follow.


Donald Trump: Pls Learn a Little History about Filipinos

Republican U.S. presidential candidate Donald Trump said Filipinos are part of a “Trojan horse” of “terrorist nations.”

Trump’s call to stop Muslims from entering the U.S. and to build a wall to prevent Mexican “drug dealers” and “rapists” has drawn condemnation from around the world. Lately, it was time for Philippines to be affronted.

Trump said these countries included Afghanistan, Iraq, Morocco, Pakistan, Somalia, Syria, Uzbekistan, Yemen and the Philippines, and referred to them as “animals.”(Roberto R. Romulo, “Trump: Filipinos are terrorists and animals,” The Philippine Star, August 12, 2016)

The Philippines has been a hospitable home for Americans for more than a hundred years. They have enjoyed the hospitality of Filipinos even in their pursuit of global powers and control.

There were three American bases in the Philippines that served as strategic strongholds of America in South East Asia: the Clark Airbase in Pampanga, the Subic Naval Base in Zambales (it was the largest American overseas military base in the world), and the Sangley Point in Cavite, Philippines. In all these bases, Filipinos served like slaves - even as sex slaves of the American forces! Throughout these years, the Philippines has been a formidable ally of America in its political and economic leadership worldwide.

US Clark Air Base, Pampanga, Philippines 

US Naval Station, Subic Bay, Zambales, Philippines 

U.S. Naval Station Sangley Point, Cavite, Philippines 

It is worthwhile mentioning that the Philippines is a friend not only to Americans. History has it that when the Jews were being rejected by other countries in their attempt to escape the evil of the holocaust, the Philippines through its President Manuel L. Quezon, was the only country that opened its doors to receive almost 1,300 Jews.

Moreover, the Philippines' vote became the tiebreaker at the United Nations in favor of UN Resolution 181 concerning the partition of Palestine and the Creation of the State of Israel in 1947.

Philippines was also a host to hundreds of thousands of Indochinese (Vietnamese, Cambodians, Lao) refugees accepted in Philippine Refugee Processing Center in Morong, Bataan and the Philippine First Asylum Center in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.

So how could Philippines be a terrorist nation? Philippines is the only Christian country in Asia, home to most American preachers and peddlers of the word of God!

For we are not, like so many, peddlers of God's word; but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ.

Filipinos are world-class citizens, enjoying the trust and confidence of many American households who employ them as domestic helpers, caregivers, and professionals par excellence.

Twenty percent of all workers in all luxury cruises in the world that traverse its greatest oceans are Filipinos. If this twenty percent of workers, engineers, technical people, and professionals will declare strike, practically there would be a standstill in the operation of all of these luxury liners.

A Filipino is a trusted cook that prepares the food of the most powerful man on earth in the White House. A Filipino was part of a team of experts that brought the first man and the first American to the moon!

Donald Trump is not a world-class citizen, yet he speaks out of ignorance against the Filipinos! To ban the Filipinos in America is gross ignorance of who the Filipinos are!

While it is true that there are Filipinos who can be considered extremists, it is not because they are Filipinos but because they were deceived by ideologies that equally deceived Americans as well!

I am a Filipino and I know truly who Filipinos are! We are peace-loving people. We are God-fearing people. The Philippines is the only country in Asia, home to almost all religious beliefs that originated from America and Europe.

To say the least that Filipinos should be banned from entering the US because there are Filipinos influenced by religious beliefs that transformed their way of thinking is insanity.

For example, there are Filipinos who have accepted the perverted thinking of an American who founded the Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints or LDS church or Mormonism to have more than one wife like their founder, Joseph Smith.

This Smith, an American who collected forty-eight wives, is not the fault of every Filipino but of a select group of victims who were influenced by the evil that some Americans brought to our country! They believed in their lies.

An unsolicited advice for the billionaire Mr. Trump from a poor Filipino: Learn a little of history before submitting yourself to be the president of a great nation that America is, with an ever-loyal ally, the FILIPINOS!

May God bless you, Mr. Trump and the United States of America!

Sincerely yours,

Brother Eli

Dear Pres. Duterte: Pls Name Religious Group Conduit of Illegal Drugs Inside Prison

8/05/2016 , 224 Comments

All over the world, people do religion. But there remain many questions about them. Simply look at what they do and preach.

Religion as generally defined in the dictionary is a system of belief on a deity or a "god." Biblically, the word "religion" came from the word "thrēskeia" which literally means ceremonial observance: - religion, worshipping. Logically speaking, it follows that not all religious worship or religious ceremonies and observance is true! Biblically, not all gods are gods.

8 Howbeit then, when ye knew not God, ye did service unto them which by nature are no gods. 
9 But now, after that ye have known God, or rather are known of God, how turn ye again to the weak and beggarly elements, whereunto ye desire again to be in bondage?

And biblically too, not all righteousness are righteousness.

2 For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. 
3 For they being ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.

There is righteousness that man considers righteousness but spells the opposite.

ISAIAH 64:6 But we are all as an unclean thing, and all our righteousnesses are as filthy rags; and we all do fade as a leaf; and our iniquities, like the wind, have taken us away.

It is inane, insane, and shamelessness to worship a rat or other animals that biblically are given to man to dominate.

GENESIS 1:26-27 
26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 
27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

JAMES 3:7 
For every kind of beasts, and of birds, and of serpents, and of things in the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed of mankind:

It is wise to believe that man have conquered practically all wild beasts in the planet. But it is not only unwise nor foolishness, the least to say, to be under the domain of animals, let alone rats!

In some parts of the world, rats are being worshipped, and there’s even a temple dedicated to them. Here’s from National Geographic [Photo by Abigail Rodriguez]. The man prays to rats in Bikaner, India.

National Geographic that placed a video on “Rat Temple” wrote the caption as –

At first glance, this temple in northern India looks like any other. But this temple also houses other deities. And there's not one...not two...but over 15,000 of them inside. Welcome to the rat temple.

If it is stupid to worship rats that are created beings of God, it is more stupid to worship the inanimate made by man like stones, wood, ceramics. They don’t even have life. But these abound in countries that are supposedly “Christian,” beginning with the Philippines.

Philippines is the still top Christian country in Asia (Michael Lipka, Pew Research Center, 1/9/2015), the 5th largest Christian country on earth (Wikipedia). But there is much to correct in all these false practices.

It is the height of insanity to worship as deity something you yourself made.

ISAIAH 44:13-17 
13 The carpenter stretcheth out his rule; he marketh it out with a line; he fitteth it with planes, and he marketh it out with the compass, and maketh it after the figure of a man, according to the beauty of a man; that it may remain in the house. 
14 He heweth him down cedars, and taketh the cypress and the oak, which he strengtheneth for himself among the trees of the forest: he planteth an ash, and the rain doth nourish it. 
15 Then shall it be for a man to burn: for he will take thereof, and warm himself; yea, he kindleth it, and baketh bread; yea, he maketh a god, and worshipeth it; he maketh it a graven image, and falleth down thereto. 
16 He burneth part thereof in the fire; with part thereof he eateth flesh; he roasteth roast, and is satisfied: yea, he warmeth himself, and saith, Aha, I am warm, I have seen the fire: 
17 And the residue thereof he maketh a god, even his graven image: he falleth down unto it, and worshipeth it, and prayeth unto it, and saith, Deliver me; for thou art my god.

It is inane to worship a fellow creature.

Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshiped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

7 Thou shalt have none other gods before me. 
8 Thou shalt not make thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the waters beneath the earth: 
9 Thou shalt not bow down thyself unto them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me,

If Christ were mere human being, would you worship him? Yet this is being preached as truth.

I repeat: All over the world, people do religion. But there remain many questions about them. Simply look at what they do and preach.

The insanity that ails the human race in this present generation, one of which is drug addiction, is caused by the stupidity of no less than "great religious leaders." They are peaching un-truth.

THE ROMANS 1:28, 32 
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; 
32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

In the Prisons
The move of the authorities that we may consider now as "powers that be" in prohibiting for sometime religious activities in the New Bilibid Prison (NBP) is welcome to the Members Church of God International (MCGI). The reason given is that there are or there is a religious group acting as conduit for illegal drugs and prostitution in the national penitentiary.

Video Credits: CNN Philippines

We believe in the integrity and sincerity of the present regime in solving criminality in our beloved country. But, for the sake of justice and fairness, we in the MCGI, humbly appeal to authorities, after due investigation, to reveal to the general public in due time who this group(s) is so that not all religious groups entering the NBP may be considered as "accused."

The MCGI have been for many years preaching the gospel to all levels of penitentiaries in the country up to the maximum security in the NBP because we believe that however evil a person is, there is hope for renewal.

Let me underscore that we do not preach in prisons to Church members who were imprisoned because of criminal acts. In fact, there is no record of an MCGI member imprisoned because of criminal activities! We preach instead to people in penitentiaries who are imprisoned while they are members of their own religions. Should they decide to push through membership with us, then that’s the time they’re considered our Church members.

Here’s the score: In MCGI, we don't have any one general, or cabinet secretary, or mayor, or people in authority, that are involved in criminal activities! We do not condone such practices nor allow them.

The main and the only reason for our presence in penitentiaries all over the country is because of our belief that the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ is also meant to be preached to those who are in prison physically and spiritually to show them the path of liberty. Our work is more spiritual than physical.

LUKE 4:16-18 
16 And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read. 
17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written, 
18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

MATTHEW 25:39-40 
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? 
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

We appeal to the President of the Philippines, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, to reveal in the soonest possible time who this religious group is so that the people may know!

We reiterate, rehabilitation centers are necessary for drug addicts, but we believe that the word of God in the Holy Scriptures will achieve a person's permanent renewal and sustained well-being.

To God be the glory!
