Dízimos / tithes

Bro. Eli noticed how generous Brazilians is in giving tithes to their pastors. Questions about “dizimo” is always brought up in every exposition and through the Mass Indoctrination, he crushed that practice. Brazil is a big country with vast lands but there are many families remain poor after years and years believing miracles will soon come and by giving in to the pastors every wish.

He is known in the Philippines as the walking Bible” because he can answer questions based on the Bible, even without opening it. “You have seen me answering questions without notes. Because of this, I believe in the power of God and what it can do for us.” He finished up the statement by this words.

“Submit ourselves in the power of God.”– Bro. Eli Soriano

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.

Enjoy while learning. This is the aim of the program – to learn and at the same time, having fun. Kawan ng Cordero aims to help our children to be God-fearing as well as be an example to other kids. As UNTV’s only Bible School on Air, its main goal is to foster mental, social, emotional and spiritual well-being for generations to come. Every episode will cater to the artistic and sporty side of the children.

Twelve years after its first episode in 2004, the program received awards from various award giving bodies like the Golden Dove Award for Best TV Program and  Anak TV Seal Awardee in 2013 and 2014 respectively. Kawan ng Cordero can also be seen via Dream Cable ch.9, Destiny Cable ch.9, Sky Cable ch.33 and of course, UNTV Channel 37 weekdays.

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.

Screen Shot 2016-11-23 at 4.41.31 AM.png

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.

2nd MCGI Thanksgiving in Brazil Marks Memorable Days

Como eu conheci o programa do irmão Eli Soriano 

As told by Irmão Tiago da Silva Sousa

I remember when my workmate let me watched the program O Caminho Antigo back in 2011. I find it so unusual. First, he showed me two pastors preaching here in Brazil. They were asking for money.

Then he showed me Bro. Eli and I immediately noticed that he was preaching in different manner. He was not asking for money but was reading everything in the Bible.

I was not attending any church events in the Catholic Church since my first communion, so I didn’t know much about what is happening in religions. It was only when I watched Bro. Eli attacking the pastors asking for money that I got to see things more clearly

What follows is that I got baptized after completing my indoctrination to the Members Church of God International (MCGI) on October 12, 2011. The recent thanksgiving held in Florianopolis was my 2nd International Thanksgiving held in Brazil. I would like to share with you my memorable days with the recently concluded thanksgiving here.

Ação de graças do Corpo no Brasil – dias inesquecíveis

When I got to the venue on April 2nd, lots of brethren had arrived.

ts
Brethren upon arrival

I saw many of the Filipino brethren I met here in Brazil last PNK I felt so happy to see them all again, all the way in my 11 hours journey from Campinas to Florianópolis I was longing to see them. I am anxious to meet them again and offer thanksgiving to God with them because they’re coming from different parts of the world like the Philippines, USA, Canada, the brethren from Europe and from Middle East. Our neighbours here in Latin America like Argentina, Bolivia, Equator, El Salvador, Mexico, Colombia and so many other countries.

Recordação ...
Recordação …

It was all so exciting and I couldn’t wait to get there to be part of the prophecy of the Bible written in Zechariah 8:21 cause we learned the will of God to have His people from around the globe gathering together before Him and fortunately the event was held in my country so I was blessed to have the opportunity to be there.

pics
Specially, I was happy to see brother Eli and brother Daniel again.

And then when I got there and meet them, I saw many of the brethren that I was expecting to see and talk to and took pictures with them. It’s a great experience and I feel really good! After a few hours we attended the Lord’s Supper as the Bible taught. We learned an amazing topic from our faithful preacher,  Brother Eli.

Next day, 3rd of April, it was a great Thanksgiving opening as we sang hymns of different languages like our own Portuguese, English and Tagalog. After the opening prayer Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel started the topic.

ts6

We, Brazilian brethren, hearing the topic being translated in Portuguese and the Spanish speaking brethren heard the topic in Spanish as the preaching was being done in tagalog.

Bro. Eli preached in Tagalog but the most amazing thing is that it was being translated in Portuguese for Brazilians and Spanish for Spanish speaking people.

ts7We perfectly understand the things being taught to us with God’s help as brother Eli said, there is God’s spirit to teach. The translation from our Filipino brethren who speaks Portuguese and Spanish were great and it is being read in the Bible in our language. It was not all Tagalog because Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel speak some Portuguese,too!

“Now it’s done and that was very fast, I want more! And there’s more to come next year God willing. To God be the glory!”
