Answer:

Dear Jomar,

Here are the verses:

(Psalms 82:1, 6) “I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.”

(John 10:34-35) “Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods. If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the Scripture cannot be broken…”

(Exodus 7:1) “And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet.”

(1 John 5:20) “And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life.”

(John 20:28) “And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God.”

(2 Corinthians 4:4) “In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.”

(Philippians 3:19) “Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.”

Question #2:

Dear Bro. Eli,

What is the very first commandment of God a sinner should follow if he is going to follow God to attain salvation?

Jeff

Answer:

Dear Jeff

The first thing to do is recorded in Luke 9:23.

“And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me.”

Afterwards, you must repent and be baptized (Acts 2:38).

“Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”

Then, obey all the commandments of Christ (Matthew 28:19-20.)

“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.”

Continue in it (John 8:31)…

“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed…”

…until the end (Matthew 10:22).

“And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.”

Question #3:

Bro. Eli,

May epekto po ba kung makakain ng pagkaing may chemical sa isang taong magtatake ng urine therapy? (Is there a negative effect if someone, who is under urine therapy, have eaten a chemically treated food?

Willie Recososa

Answer:

Dear Willie,

I don’t think it count much; better still, refrain from processed and chemically treated food. (http://www.sweetpoison.com/food-additives-to-avoid.html)

Question #4:

Bakit po pinili ng Dios ang ating mundo upang paglagyan ng kanyang mga nilikha? (Why did God chose to put his creation on this earth?)

Carissa Suanco

ladyclarizz_014@yahoo.com

Answer:

Dear Carissa,

God did not chose the earth to put man and other creation in it, but He intended it to be man’s dwelling place in the universe (Acts 17:26).

“And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation…”

For those who think that there may be other place in the known universe that can be a second home for man, they are utterly wrong! The prepared home for humanity is another earth that will be forthcoming after the passing away of the present heaven and earth (Revelation 21:1-2).

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea. And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.”

Question #5

What is your assessment for the bestselling book “Purpose Driven Life”? Would u recommend it to your members?

Henry Cornejo

Answer:

Dear Henry,

The Bible is the ONLY book I recommend to members and non-members alike. (Isaiah 34:16; 2 Timothy 3:15-17).

(Isaiah 34:16) “Seek ye out of the book of the LORD, and read: no one of these shall fail, none shall want her mate: for my mouth it hath commanded, and his spirit it hath gathered them.”

(2 Timothy 3:15-17)

“And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.”

The writing and reading of other books can be tiresome and most of the times in vain (Ecclesiastes 12:12).

“And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.”

The book you mentioned carries with it some wrong thoughts and ideas of the author; although ordinary people who are not knowledgeable about the whole truth in the Bible may appreciate it, but I would say, that there are errors in the idea of the author in some points of the book.

Question #6:

Dear Bro. Eli:

1) What is the Father God’s reason why he born from his womb our Lord Jesus Christ and he created the 24 elders and the 4 creatures?

2) Are there different changes when you believe and follow the Gospel as a child of the world or a baptized Christian?

What I mean is good changes in the men of this world and baptized Christians are different when they both follow the Lord’s Gospel?

3) Why is our Lord Jesus Christ was called Wisdom of God?

Ally of ADD

Answer:

Dear Ally of ADD,

He has begotten our Lord Jesus Christ from his being to be His delight; just like a physical father who wanted to have a child for his delight (Proverbs 8:30; Matthew 17:5).

(Proverbs 8:30) “Then I was by him, as one brought up with him: and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him…”

(Matthew 17:5) “While he yet spake, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them: and behold a voice out of the cloud, which said, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye him.”

Aside from being the Father’s delight, His Son was intended by God to be the savior of the world…

(“John 3:16) “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

(The Acts 4:12) “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”

…by setting an example to sinners to obey God. (1Peter 2:21; Hebrews 5:7-9).

(1 Peter 2:21) “For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps…”

(Hebrews 5:7-9) “Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared; Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him…”

All those that will obey and follow the gospel will all be one. You can not follow the gospel and at the same time remain a child of the world (John 15:19-20; Romans 12:1-2).

(John 15:1920) “If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.”

(Romans 12:1-2) “I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

If we are real Christians, we have to deny worldly lust.

(Titus 2:11-12) “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men , teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world…”

He is called God’s wisdom in the Bible because He was the instrument by which God created all things that exists. (1 Corinthians 1:24; John 1:1-3; Psalms 104:24; Luke 11:49).

(1 Corinthians 1:24) “But unto them which are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God.”

(John 1:1-3) “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”

(Psalms 104:24) “O LORD, how manifold are thy works! in wisdom hast thou made them all: the earth is full of thy riches.”

(Luke 11:49) “Therefore also said the wisdom of God, I will send them prophets and apostles, and some of them they shall slay and persecute…”

  1. Bro Eli, its been years I’m waiting for you to have comment on the book Purpose Driven Life. I read the book and was not satisfied because of the teachings I have learned from you about Christ. I have challenge my friend and told I him that he will not get the answer he was looking for and truly he also was not satisfied and still confused.

    I Thank God Bro Eli, you really are God Sent to US!

  2. Should it be “Bible driven Life” heheehe. The author of that book needs to consult the Bible and bro eli for revision.

  3. “THE PURPOSE DRIVEN Life”.
    Yes,i do have one i bought it almost a year already. well i cant refute what our preacher,teacher,minister,a brother,a faithful worker who is scripture by scripture unlocks the hidden knowledge and wisdon,a godly man who is living a life according to what he teach,can say that it is not,should not,musn’t be part of our Christian faith!
    About the book,”i stopped reading it!” a week? instant!

  4. The book (Purpose Driven Life) was a sell-out when it came out. My friends and colleagues absolutely believed in what the author had said. Never even thought of buying the book but i wanted to see for myself what the fuzz was all about. I borrowed one, scanned for 30 seconds and returned it immediately. Anyone could have written what he has written. There’s not much depth in there. A man, maybe experienced some things in life, decided to write what he thinks the readers would appreciate and that’s it.

    This website (esoriano.wordpress.com), on the otherhand is something different altogether. Logic, commonsense, inspired words from a true God sent. Things which this world desperately needs.

    TBG, Bro. Eli! Godspeed!

  5. Awesome!!! You are really a GOD Sent to us Brod. Eli.. for some months i’ve been wanting to hear this comment about the “Purpose Driven Life” and perfectly you have answered..

  7. so that book(Purpose Driven Life)is nonsense…it’s only a an idea of man not an idea that came from the scripture..

    I hope that God always protect you. and you will answer which you left unanswered.

    You really one of God’s instrument for the sake of truth and righteousness in this world. even I am not your brother in faith.

    but we can be friends if you want.
