That is why we are studying the word of God, and we are going to relate this to the many organizations of faith in our time, inasmuch as all of them claim that they are the truth.
The topic that we are tackling right now is no longer new to you. Thru this series of discussion, we will study the INC’s fundamental doctrines.
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.
Perhaps, others, especially our foes in faith, will hate us for what we are doing.
But is seeking for the truth, you have to study all the angles of how man could be worthy in the eyes of God.
The “Pasugo” said that the Big Four were the four most powerful leaders of the world. He was telling them, “Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees till we have sealed the servants of God in their foreheads.” Now, let us make a substitution. Manalo appeared ahead of the formation of the Big Four. In other words, the INC’s explanation is the opposite of what the Bible says. Even a full wind from those places shall come unto me: now also will I give sentence against them. There were four winds in the Book of Revelation, but when they read the Book of Jeremiah, where they based their explanation, they only read about one wind. The topic that we would like to talk about, this time, concerns Mr.
And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed a hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.” I want you to pay attention to the verses as we analyze them. Ang apat na pinuno ng bansa na kumakatawan sa pagpigil sa digmaang sumiklab noong 1914 ay sina Lloyd George ng Gran Bretanya, sina Clemenceau ng Pransiya, si Orlando ng Italya at Wilson ng Amerika. If you will notice, it was the four angels, who, according to them were the Big Four that St. They were standing in the four corners of the earth. You will agree with me that the deduction and conclusion given to you by Mr. “And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea. “At that time shall it be said to his people and to Jerusalem. -13, 19 as a basis to their conclusion that one of the winds referred to war, how about the three other winds? Manalo is really a messenger of God, then, he should have taught them the symbolism of the three other winds being mentioned in Rev. And I even thanked them for that answer because they, in effect, admitted that they couldn’t explain the meaning of the three other winds because they do not know it … If the winds in the Book of Revelation were the same with the wind in the Book of Jeremiah, which refers to war, definitely it does not refer to the war in 1914! According to the prophecy, there is a dry wind, not four but one. In other words, the prophecy of Jeremiah is short of three winds. But even if such was the case, still, the INC’s interpretation is wrong. This particular prophecy did not happen in the Philippines! However, when the literal wind blows, it fans and cleanses. Felix Manalo, founder and leader of the Iglesia ni Cristo URL:
And later, we will find out if this particular doctrine of the INC is written in the Bible, or if it has any biblical basis at all. John said, “And after these things I saw four angels standing in the four corners of the earth.” St. holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.” The INC’s explanation to this is that, the four angels standing in the four corners of the earth represent the Big Four. It said, “Ang apat na anghel na pumipigil sa hangin ay mga pinuno ng bansa, na ito’y mga sugo rin o anghel ayon sa I Ped. Ang hanging pinipigil ay digmaan, gaya ng sinasabi sa Jer. Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees till we have sealed the servants of God in their foreheads.” Very clearly, the four angels were already there before the angel ascending from the east appeared. I am pained at my heart; my heart maketh a noise in me; I cannot hold my peace, because thou hast heard, O my soul, the sound of the trumpet, the alarm of war.” What, according to them, did the wind symbolize? Granting, without accepting, that the wind referred to war, where did this war take place? Let us read the verse once again: “At that time shall it be said to his people and to Jerusalem …” Therefore, it was a war in Jerusalem, and not in the Philippines. A dry wind …” It speaks of a wind – just one wind – while the Book of Revelation mentions four winds! “And after these things I saw four angels standing in the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.” How many winds were the four angels standing in the four corners of the earth trying to control? It says, “to Jerusalem, a dry wind of the high places in the wilderness towards the daughter of my people, not to fan, nor to cleanse …” Does it refer to literal wind? But this wind is a dry wind; it does not refresh one. lang=en&rowid=32 We are inviting you to another important discussion on matters which are vital to our salvation. And as we have promised you, we shall continue tackling about the church which Mr.
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.
