MCGI – Seeds from East to West Celebrating the Glory of God!

 

Manila, Philippines. [October 6, 2015]  The 3-day Thanksgiving of the Members Church of God International (MCGI) on October 2-4 presented one of the most valuable lessons in life:  seeds of abraham that is impossible to be counted, caring for our children and the fulfillment of the prophecy of Gods people.  It rained for days but this had not stopped them from giving thanks to God to and travel to reach the ADD Convention Center  in Apalit Pampanga and attemding  other remote points with 1,361 satelite recievers around the globe.

On the first day, Bro. Daniel Razon talked about the importance of including our children in all church gatherings. It is a fact that children is often neglected and being shoved off in almost all events of the family. They are seen as an annoyance and disturbance because of their nature as temperamental and easily get bored. 

Higher regards or importance to children.  A screechy voice of the children will not annoy God unlike the scribes and Pharisees do not want the children. Those who have Christ in their hearts wont feel ill about the noises. Brother Eli Soriano reiterated that in all means, children will go to heaven. God nurture and gives importance to children. A good example is the conversation between Our Lord Jesus Christ and the chief priests and scribes in Mathew 21:15-16

But when the chief priests and the scribes saw the wonderful things that he did, and the children crying out in the temple, “Hosanna to the Son of David!” they were indignant; 16 and they said to him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” And Jesus said to them, “Yes; have you never read,

‘Out of the mouth of babes and sucklings
thou hast brought perfect praise’?”

Bro. Eli pointed out its importance, as it is written in the Bible,

Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.- Proverbs 22:6 

Parents are encouraged to bring along their children to hear and be familiar with the songs and praises to God. As for other members, they are advised to be patient and understanding to their little ones. The Members Church of God International, seeing the importance of kids hearing the word of God, they were also given a room in every locale called KNC Rooms. A destined worker will supervise and teach the children about stories from the Bible. There, they have activities such as Bible reading, singing, and even preaching. Through this motivation of encouraging parents to bring along their kids, the KNC Show is taken into the television program to further reach every household.

THE FULFILLMENT OF THE PROPHECY

 The humble beginnings of Ang Dating Daan’s propagation had encountered the hardest, amazing, unusual, controversial journey. But all these trials had paid off because of the ever growing numbers of members around the globe.

Year 2001 to 2010 is the dawn of the Members Church of God International and Bro. Eli Soriano which program Ang Dating Daan is being barred from his freedom of speech. That doesn’t stop there. The MTRCB completely stopped him from guesting to other programs which shackled him from preaching on television. A fabricated case against Bro. Eli that made him decide to fled to another country.

The first broadcast of the program in Porto Alegre is embraced immensely. Within just 3-4 months, the hotel was jam-packed because of the unexpected attendees of the Bible Exposition. Inside, guests were crying whilst the program is on-going. Touched by what they heard, deepest emotions were seen throughout. Hindrances and many other problems encountered by the group, still, the demand to hear the word of God is astounding. Locales were immediately placed.

Uruguay, under Brazil, the first Spanish country to have the broadcast. The program was opened in Argentina, Peru, Bolivia. Baptism in Peru and Bolivia is conducted without a locale and workers. God leads the way to seek the program and reached Ecuador, Colombia, Venezuela, Honduras and El Salvador, in which the program can be seen 24/7.

“Naniniwala po kami na ang isang bagay na nagpaginhawa sa kalooban ng isang kapwa-tao, yun po ay nakapagpapasaya sa Dios. Pagka po ang isang tao ay naaawa sa isang mahirap o tumutulong sa isang mahirap, is tantamount na parang napapautang natin ang Dios. Yun ang sinasabi sa aklat ng Kawikaan, ang naaawa sa dukha, nagpapautang sa Panginoon. Kaya parang naiisip ko, na yung mga naglalaro – mga senador, mga taong kilala sa lipunan, siguro bawat dribol nun, pag nanalo siya, dinonate yung kanyang napanalunan sa mga nangangailangan, parang nagpautang na siya sa Dios. At pagka ang Dios ang nagkautang, nagbabayad Siya. Kung magbayad ang Dios, maka- pupong mahigit kaysa sa ating ginawa. Yun po ang sinasabi sa kasulatan. “ — Bro. Eli Soriano

“We believe that a chance to ease the pain of our fellowmen pleases God. To feel some pity or the urge to help the helpless, to the needy is tantamount to lending to God. In the book of Proverbs, it says, he who has pity on the poor lends to the Lord.In my thoughts, those senators, those well-known in the society … in every dribble, in every win, they would donate it to the needy, it is like lending to the Lord. And if God pays, he pays more than what you have given, more than what you have done for Him. That is written in the scriptures.”  — Bro. Eli Soriano

The opening of the UNTV Cup Season 4 is one of the highlights of the 11TH anniversary of UNTV themed UNTV Live Bigger, a two-day celebration.
