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. The map which started at Uruguay , the propagation is going up to the map.

Guests-inquirers did not go home empty-handed as they got answers based from the Bible during the Itanong Mo Kay Soriano segment of the program. Some of the questions asked are deemed significant and timely to discuss by the host as they may also be queries in mind by other people. The following were some of the discussed topics:
Question:  “What is the reward that was written in the Book of Life? Those deeds written, is it a list of sins?”  Luz Olemos, Church of Christ 33 A.D.

Bro. Eli:  ” It is the word God that will be the basis in judging of those things that were written in the book of life. The other question is, what does the reward by book of Revelations means? What is that reward? Are you going to be rich on earth? That is the problem of other people who are reading the Bible. Pertaining, seeing, blessing … pertaining to a reward. What comes to their minds always, what is in the Bible… it always means something earthly, the minds of those people especially of those pastors like the pastors in America being investigated for the wealth he accumulated over the years in leading his congregation. The final reward that was established by God to His servant is not here on earth.  Things that are not seen by eyes nor heard, nor entered by the hearts of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”

 

Question:  “What is the sign if someone is nearly dying?”  Pip Liwar, Pentecostal

Bro. Eli:   “The farthest future we have is tomorrow. Boast not thyself of tomorrow; for thou knowest not what a day may bring forth. Brother, it is not possible for men to know his own death. One is in a state of coma for a year but still survives.  All men faces sudden death. A man with AIDS will live for 7 years being the longest. As for other ailments would depend upon their immune systems and body conditions. The farthest future we have is tomorrow but still, man face uncertainty.”

 

Question :  “In this dispensation, wherein different religious denominations were sprouting like mushrooms, how can we tell if the religion we are in is the right one that teaches the true words of God?”   Mr. Romeo Cruz, a 73 year old Catholic

Bro. Eli :   “Surer and at peace. We can be sure of our salvation if we are sure on what we believe in. Teaching what exactly the Bible says. Not a single word is diminished; there is not a single mention of the word purgatory, limbo, and rosary… there is none. These were not even mentioned in the Bible. As a Christian and believer, we should be certain in what we believe in.”

 

Question :  “If ever I decide to be affiliated to your religion, can you give me an assurance of promised salvation based on the Bible? The second one concerning the pastors is, that members should see some signs if the one’s leading them is truly a man of God?”  Mr. Luisito Perez, an INC member

Bro. Eli  :  ” At first, God had made man upright but the devil corrupted their minds. Manalo said that outside your church, there is no salvation. How about those people who had not even heard Manalo’s preaching? Are they bound to hell? Manalo started preaching in 1913, how about beyond 1913, is there no salvation for those people? If it is the case, then his father and mother who is not baptized in his religion would not be saved!”

 

“To God, even to those people who had not heard of Him nor His preachings, but do good works will receive salvation. What I can say is, in the religion in which I am leading, yes, you can receive salvation by abiding God’s teachings. Those teachings that is found in the Bible. Yes, you can attain salvation. What I want to reiterate is that, we do not have the right to judge those people that have not reach by the teachings in the Bible, even to think that those people would go straight to hell is merciless.”

These are few of the many inquiries answered by Bro. Eli during the event. Ang Dating Daan started its broadcast as early as 1980 over the radio and 1983 on television. Since then, the program continued to serve its audiences by using the internet in propagating the word of God presently airing over UNTV.  The program assisted by Kuya Daniel Razon, had opened its arms to the needy and setting a good example to the society, living by its theme,  Shaping a Nation Zealous of Good Works.
