It can be remembered that Bro. Eli left the Philippines with a heavy heart in 1995 due to religious persecution. The propagation of the words of God in the Bible continued as he searched for countries demanding for Bible Expositions in different languages like Spanish and opened the television program via “El Camino Antiguo in South America. 2009 is the year when Bro. Eli finally settled in Brazil with an astounding attendance of non-Filipino guests. This prompt the birth of another program in Latin America, O Caminho Antigo in Brazil, which soon become the home the televangelist.  El Camino Antiguo and O Caminho Antigo is the counterpart of the longest running religious program in the Philippines – Ang Dating Daan.

The Presiding Minister of the Members Church of God International, Bro. Eli Soriano is greeted through birthday song. The pouring of the bretheren in Brazil and going back to their respective countries after, made him utter this words : I wonder if there will be another next time? I dream of another next time.”  In James 4:14 says,  “Whereas ye know not that shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.”

Adversary of Faith

Bro. Eli faced many different religious denominations back in the Philippines. Chased and tracked them all one by one, not a single debate he has lost. He had proved over and over that he is as they call him, Biblical genius. Despite the clear teachings, there are still few who are convinced. Enemies of faith went as far as following him in Brazil to give out  pamphlets to make money. By putting all the cards in the table and transparent in all of the transactions, he pointed out that there is no room for doubts – in money and most of important, salvation of soul.

The 5,344 Newly Baptized Brethren for the 1st Quarter of 2019 proves that more and more souls are hungry for the truth.

Affirmation

Before the event ends, a loud thunder was heard as Bro. Eli  discussed the verse in Malachi 1:10-11 says “Who is there even among you that would shut the doors for nought? neither do ye kindle fire on mine altar for nought. I have no pleasure in you, saith the Lord of hosts, neither will I accept an offering at your hand.  11, For from the rising of the sun even unto the going down of the same my name shall be great among the Gentiles; and in every place incense shall be offered unto my name, and a pure offering: for my name shall be great among the heathen, saith the Lord of hosts.

Birthday message of Bro. Eli Soriano to brethren:

“Sana magkaroon tayong lahat ng kagalingan. Huwag ng patulan ang mga nanglalait sa akin. Nasasaktan ang kalooban ko dahil alam ko ang may gawa nyan ay ang demonyo. Huwag tayong gumanti ng alipusta sa alipusta. Matuto tayo ng paggalang sa salita ng Dios. Magpakita tayo ng paggalang sa salita ng Dios.”

“Remember your Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when you shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;” 

                                                                                                     Eclesiastes 12:1

This verse used by Bro. Eli Soriano for the youth as he relayed an example on how people, especially the younger generations, are drawn into computers sitting for hours. According to studies, people who are in less activities, their health began to deteriorate especially the lumbar area. If the lower extremities are healthy, the teeth are also healthy. He cited himself as an example, going to the dentist to have a root canal or implant, when dentures started to deteriorate, bacteria will easily affect our brain. When our teeth lessen, it activates the impulse and make the  body work.

“You do not respect the topic that you signed. You do not respect the commandment.”

Pre-debate 

After the November 1, 2017 Bible Expositon held at Guaratuba, Parana, the O Caminho Antigo Channel has over 3.5K views on its plugging after the two parties signed an agreement for a peaceful debate. It is remembered that for over a time, no one wants to debate Bro. Eli because of the latter has a reputation of not lost any debate.

The supposed to be debate that Bro. Eli Soriano accepted is from the pastor of Igreja Mundial – Valdemiro Santiago, which the later did not answered back. “To show to the Brazilians that I preach what is in the Bible. March 6, 2016, I , Bro. Eli Soriano, accept the challenge of Valdemiro Santiago to a debate.”

 

Um pregador insensato.  

“I am sorry if I offended you, Irmao Douglas, I speak directly. Not to glorify myself but based on the Bible. I hope you understand. Pastor Douglas said that Bro. Eli went out of the question. He reiterated that in Brazil, there is no preacher that preach the way Bro. Eli do.

Irmao Rodel shared his experience. “Bro. Eli is spending his own money and there is no other preacher that preach and spend like Bro. Eli. He cited an example that he is going to different places and cited the verse in Romans 15:20 –  Yea, so have I strived to preach the gospel, not where Christ was named, lest I should build upon another man’s foundation:

“Come forward if I am selling the word of God here in Brazil.” Bro. Eli explained that criticizing almost all religion in Bible Exposition is expected. He pointed out that he did not mean to criticize the Igreja Quadrangular, which is the religion of the guest.

“I was asking Irmao Edson (Veiga – Bro. Eli’s translator ) because he is a former member of the Igreja Quadrangular. If you say that you are a member of Quadrangular, I am not attacking you. To satisfy your desire, let your pastor of Quadrangular to come forward to prove your religion.”

Bro. Rodel said that he is a pastor in the Four Square Church.

“Okay. 1 agree because I am a person that watch the program and admire you. I am also a preacher of truth.”

Pastor Douglas said that Bro. Eli can choose anything that he believes that is in contrast in his religion but Bro. Eli said that since he watch his program and knows the Members Church of God International and don’t know everything about his church, its better that he will be the one to choose the theme for the debate. Bro. Eli encouraged the members of the Quadrangular to watch the debate.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bro. Eli Soriano Blast the Seventh Day Adventist Hypocrisy!

“I suggest, they should change their name to Adventista Cada Setimo Dia.”

Florianopolis, Santa Catarina Brazil [April 28, 2017] Brother Eli Soriano blast the erroneous teachings of the Seventh Day Adventist in the recent Bible Exposition held at Florianopolis, Santa Catarina Brazil, 28th of April 2017.

Screen Shot 2017-04-29 at 7.49.59 AM.png

A guest prompted this question, is it right to work during Saturdays? Is it important?

Screen Shot 2017-04-29 at 7.11.37 AM.png

Bro. Eli cited the verse in Mark 2:27 And he said unto them, The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath. It is foolishness to the Seventh Day Adventist because their hospitals are open and even the janitors are working. Pastors are profiting and even let woman led the church — Ellen G. White, the founder of the Seventh Day Adventist Church. What kind of woman is Ellen G. White?

She prophesied that the world will end in 1843. Bro. Eli Soriano added,  “…when they failed the prophecy, they blamed God. At first glace, it is wrong! The name is wrong. I asked why adventist? He said, we are waiting for the Christ. But they should have said, “CADA setimo dia” … every Saturdays. Americans bring these religions here in Brazil. I suggest, they should change their name to Adventista Cada Setimo Dia. I even encourage a debate to prove it. They said that there is only 10 commandments. I said, is baptism a commandment? He said yes, then, it is already 11. It is on the bible.”

Some of the guests diligently listening to Bro. Eli’s explanation based on the Bible.
