2:4, “Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth.” In other words, salvation is dependent on how much one has learned the truth.God wants all men to be saved; God wants all men to know the truth for them to be saved.The Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) was established here in the Philippines by Mr. And at present, we are trying to confirm if, indeed, Mr.
We will try to confirm from the Bible if he was really a messenger of God. Manalo ascribed so many titles to himself, one of which is that, he was “the angel ascending from the east” being mentioned in Rev. This claim could be read on p.29 of the July 1964 issue of the Pasugo. Do you know that these messengers have a special role in God’s historical and religious book – the Bible? Paul said about God’s messengers and leaders in Gal. “For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the Church of God, and wasted it: And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers. Did he begin while he was still in his mother’s womb? Naging mahalaga siyang tagapagpalaganap ng relihiyong ito.
And this was written by a certain Joaquin Balmores. In another issue, they claimed that he was the “worm Jacob” in Isa. 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. But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by his grace. But the Lord said unto me, Say not, am a child: for thou shalt go to all that I shall speak.” Therefore, God already has a plan for His messenger while he is still inside the womb of his mother. I will share with you a little background on the life of Mr. Kasalukuyan siyang nagtatagumpay sa kanyang mga gawain sa relihiyon nang ang kanyang asawa ay namatay.
Like what I have shown you in our previous discussion, the INC is claiming that Mr. Felix Manalo is God’s last messenger in the last day.
Felix Manalo is, allegedly, the last messenger of God. And we are expressing our strong opposition to this claim.
Let us take for granted that the INC’s deduction, or allegation, is true. Felix Manalo began preaching in the Philippines in 1913. Manalo was already preaching before their group (the Big Four) was formed. In fact, the Big Four was organized only in the 80’s or 90’s. On that particular aspect alone, the INC”s deduction is already proven wrong, especially so if we are going to consider their explanation to the significance of “ascending from the east”. But based on the INC’s explanation, it was their church that was ascending because it was already gaining popularity. One more thing, the Bible said, the four angels were preventing the four winds from blowing. Behold, he shall come up as clouds, and his chariots shall be as a whirlwind: his horses are swifter than eagles. Nonetheless, they still concluded this also refers to the winds in the Book of Revelation. Felix Manalo’s being a messenger of God, according to them.
If the four angels standing in the four corners of the earth were the Big Four – Clemenceau, Wilson, Lloyd George, and Orlando, and if the angel ascending from the east was Mr. But, granting that he really began in 1914, the question is, where were the Big Four during that time? They said that, this referred to the gradual popularity of the INC. But let us find out from the biblical standards if Mr. This is not to malign, or to put him in an embarrassing situation.
Our primary intent is to expose the word of God in the Bible, and to show you if Mr.
Felix Manalo is a messenger that we should believe in order to be saved.
If you are going to watch religious programs today, you will see that they are practically similar. They would speak of how Jesus performed miracle in their lives, and how He even helped them in their financial problems. In other words, all of the religious programs today do not have the patience in teaching the people about biblical truths vital to their salvation.
