Can We Really See The Future?


ask1.jpg

Bro. Eli,

I have this mystery question in my mind, I only realized I have proven this ability to foresee things that happens exactly as they are even before year 2004-2005. But it happens so often only lately that I realized what I was foreseeing before it has come true. I never had confidence or trust in myself whenever I foresee things that will happen. I would only realize that those thoughts and visions were real after they occurred exactly. One example was 3 years ago every time I pass by a tower I could see myself working there and wishing and praying it will come true and it happened. Another is last week, I heard several compliments of my skin and I foresee I will suffer terrible skin allergies, and after a few days I woke up exactly what I’m seeing has occurred. This afternoon, while I was cooking I said to myself the stove will run out of gas, after a few minutes I checked the stove and it has no fire anymore. Another was last few weeks; I was having thoughts that one of my officemates will be terminated, after one week she was. These are only some instances among which I have experienced. I would like to know why I am having this. I don’t believe in them at all until it happens. I am not even worthy as like those who have gifts like the prophets. I will appreciate that your answer will grant me peace. Thanks and God bless!

Dear Aplgreenlass,

Generally and Biblically speaking, a human being has not the capacity to see what exactly will happen in the nearest future. Of course, the nearest future is tomorrow.

(Proverbs 27:1) “Do not boast yourself of tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.” MKJV

In fact, tomorrow can outlive us.

(James 4:13-14) “Go to now, ye that say, To day or to morrow we will go into such a city, and continue there a year, and buy and sell, and get gain: Whereas ye know not what 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. “

Of course, as the saying goes, there is no rule without an exemption. Prophets and seer in the Bible, through God’s spirit, were able to see dreams and visions foretelling exactly what will happen in the farthest future. In the Bible, the end of everything was predicted.

(1 Samuel 9:9) “Beforetime in Israel, when a man went to enquire of God, thus he spake, Come, and let us go to the seer: for he that is now called a Prophet was beforetime called a Seer.”

(Revelation 1:19) “Write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter…”

Other people claim that they have the power to foresee a forthcoming event because of ‘esp’ or extrasensory perception, but most of the times, things happen because of mere coincidence.

May I ask you something? And I hope you will be honest to yourself in answering my question.

Are all the things that you have perceived to happen did exactly happen without a miss? If your answer is yes, only God knows the details without miss of all things that will happen in the future. Then, maybe, you are being inspired of God. But if your honest answer is they do not all happen 100 percent, then, there is no special calling on you. What is happening is subnormal but, not supernatural, and you must not bother yourself thinking about this.

Sometimes even the prediction of false prophets may come to pass; and God allows it to test us if we love Him and believe in Him with all our hearts and soul.

(Deuteronomy 13:1-3) “If there arise among you a prophet, or a dreamer of dreams, and giveth thee a sign or a wonder, And the sign or the wonder come to pass, whereof he spake unto thee, saying, Let us go after other gods, which thou hast not known, and let us serve them; Thou shalt not hearken unto the words of that prophet, or that dreamer of dreams: for the LORD your God proveth you, to know whether ye love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul.”

Thus, we may conclude that not because something perceived happened, it has any supernatural importance.

The devil’s agenda is always, and will ever be, to mislead people in their belief about the Almighty God. We must be completely aware that Satan is the archenemy of God. He is the cause of all confusions in this present world. God is not a god of confusion. So, it is satan that causes them.

(1 Corinthians 14:33) “For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.”

The devil or satan can pollute the minds of people.

(2 Corinthians 11:3) “But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. “

Satan has also the power to perceive what might happen in the future. He has long been with mankind, and has mastered the ways of men, and can mathematically compute what is to happen in the near future. He can be a possible perpetrator in the minds of people to perceive what may happen and then mislead people from their belief and trust in the True, Faithful God. Remember, the Bible tells us of the subtlety of satan the serpent.

(Genesis 3:1) “Now the serpent was more subtil than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?”

(Revelation 12:9) “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.”

The mind of a person may think of something which is not proper for him to think, thus, the apostle Paul admonished the Christians and the first century Church to think soberly.

(Romans 12:3) “For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.”

Human mind is far reaching, and may even think of things which is not reachable and achievable by the human body. Perhaps, this is the reason why there are those who call themselves ‘free thinker’. Maybe, they have an uncontrollable mind so God said that the minds and the thinking of men are vain and nothing.

(Psalms 94:11) “The LORD knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity. “

I pray that you may put your trust in the power of God, and ask for His guidance that you may perceive and see the truth.

 

God Bless,

  1. When I am all alone, something strikes my head. I thought of myself in the future, looking back of what I did in the past. But why can I twist the events as they happen? And why do my knowledge is limited to what I did already and still unsure of what happens next?

    I think that no matter what the scenario is, considering the “now” and that I am aware of my action, I shall be liable for all of it. I pray that my angel and myself always walk to the path where God leads.

    Psalm 91:

    11 For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways;

    14 “Because he loves me,” says the LORD, “I will rescue him;
    I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.

    15 He will call upon me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him.

    16 With long life will I satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.”

  2. I think the manifestation that you encounter is just only normal situation as what in:

    “He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red.” (Matthew 16:2)

    “And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowring…..” (Matthew 16:3).

    What is the hidden of that manifestation brother is GOD give you a talent in order you can determine the righteous church that you are going to be in.

  3. Brother Eli, allow me to ask this question of my own…

    Does the Bible prohibit Christians from practicing meditation as a way of relaxing the mind, clearing it of thoughts, worries etcetera. I used to practice a type of formal meditation technique derived from eastern practitioners (i.e., buddhists, hindus, etc.) but minus their beliefs and religious thoughts. I stopped doing it after baptism for fear I might be engaging in a pagan practice.

    With my increasing stress at work lately, however, I began to wonder whether indeed my fear was not misguided. After all, there are scientific proofs that say meditation contributes to mental wellbeing, and some say it even helps prevent sickness that are stress induced.

    My current personal view is that meditation is just a technology (like fire) devised by man which may be used for good (achieving good health) or evil (a ritualistic tool for false religion). During the course of a normal day we may achieve the meditative state (known in psychology as the “alpha level”) such as when we are in deep prayer or deep thought, characterized by a state of relaxed concentration accompanied by obliviousness to external stimulus. We also pass through this meditative level immediately before going to full sleep mode, and again before being fully awake. Formal meditation is just a more controlled way of reaching these mental states.

    There is a verse in the bible saying “be still and know that I am God.”— can it be applied to meditation, which involves being mentally still and silent, and from that state of being realize that God is indeed real?—(such as in the case of the French philosopher Descartes who achieved a similar realization after “queting” his mind of all his preconceived notions about reality?)

    I’d really appreciate to hear your view on this matter and what the bible says of it.

  4. Dear Brethrens and Friends,

    Bro Eli is exactly right, there r times we could foretell the future, but let me tell u something about the future, if u look at it, it changes, because u have looked at it, so if u can change it, so is the great responsibility u have to save everyone from what great power that u have. Remember that prophets have written down their prediction because of the great turmoil they see, especially the end. Most have failed, while some which to God’s grace has done well on predicting Jesus Christ’s birth, glory days, suffering and at most return has been successful.
    And yet even I here is about to tell you, if you have this gift cherish and and do what u can to save not just yourself but all of your loved ones.

    If you want a vision of this you can go here:
    and I promise you wont forget it:

    Inlove of God,

  5. i think if we are just be observant with what is happening in our environment, we can say that we can see our future or what is in store for us…. and besides, everything has been seen and written as what the apostles said;
    “What we have seen and heard we declare to you so that you, too, can have fellowship with us. Now this fellowship of ours is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.” I JOHN 1:3

    and in one point the Lord Jesus Christ said….
    “I have told you this now, before it happens, so that when it does happen you will believe.” JOHN 14:29

    and things that has been and that has yet to come was already been written and is accounted for in the book of Revelations.

    thus the bible said….
    “That which hath been is now; and that which is to be hath already been; and God requireth that which is past.” ECCLESIASTES 3:15

    we are but to fulfill the things which had been written and i am willing to be corrected if i said something unfavorable or wrong on this comment.

    thanks and GOD bless.

  6. Brother Ka Dyords,

    Peace!

    Meditation

    Brother, the goal of all true mysticism is the soul’s direct, personal expereince of God, This has been called God-realization or union with God. But what is meant by “Within”? well, when we close our eyes, we are automatically within ourselves, althought a person will normally see nothing but darkness within when their eyes are shut that darkness is actually the starting point of the spiritual journey back to God. It is all a question of the mind’s attention, meaning when the mind is scattered in thoughts concerning the outside world, it cannot really be said that a person is within themselves, even if their eyes are shut. But when the attention becomes concentrated upon and interested in what lies within that darkness, then the inner journey can be started.

    Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand (matt. 4:17)

    the purpose of the Masters in coming to this world is to awaken human beings to God’s immanent presence, to awaken people to the presence of the indwelling Lord, experience HIS light and power for themselves, within themselves. Jesus was speaking of this personal experience of God when he said:

    “blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God”. (matt. 5:8).

    One who sees or experiences God within is a mystic and , from a study of his teachings, Jesus can confidently be placed in this category. As he also said:

    “I and my Father are one”. (john 10:30).

    There is a means which mystics advocate method of reaching God within oneself. Jesus is trying to express his view to this entirely inward and spiritual practice when he says:

    “The light of the body is the eye: If therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light” (matt. 6:22).

    the single eye lies in the forehead, behind and slightly above the two eyes, though it is a mental centre, not a physical one. It is the thinking centre of a human being, the focus or hearquarters of the mind and soul, also called the eye centre or Third Eye. It has often been compared to a door and the early stages of spiritual practice are like knocking at this door. (mattehw 7:7). It is the place where the attention is to be withrawn from the senses and inwardly concentrated. Withrawing the attention from the external world and from the extremeties of the body to this point is the first step on what is called the INNER JOURNEY- THE MYSTIC ASCENT OF THE SOUL.

    Brother, the opening of the inner door, however is only the beginning. (for the yogi’s, its already the end). From that point onward the soul travels the path to God by means of inner light and also most importantly -inner sound., thse are the soul’s companion and constant guide so to speak. The mystic path that leads the soul back to God is the path of this “Word” and the light and sound which the soul hears within are the soul’s direct expereince of this power.

    You see brother, The “Word” is the source of life, it is the spiritual light at the heart of everything. It lies within all of us, and yet, as JOhn observes:

    ” And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not (john 1:5).

    the inner light is within everyone, but we do not see it because the mind is directed towards the world of the physical senses. Consequently, the mind and soul remains in darkness-both metaphorically and literally for when we close our eyes we see nothing but darkness. And echoing the words of JOhn’s gospel, Jesus says in St. Matthew:

    “if therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness” (matthew 6:23).

    So the mystic path taught by Jesus is the way that leads the soul back to the Father, the path of the “Word”, the Yoga of the holy spirit”. again as Jesus Said:

    “the Dead shall hear the voice of the “Son” of God; for they that hear shall live” (john 5:24)

    Brother, the “dead” are the souls of this world, who have forgotten God, their inward source of life. They are spiritually dead. but when they “hear” the voice of the “Son” of God – when they meet a master who teaches them how to contact the mystic sound within themselves-then they “shall live”. then their inner consciousness will be expanded and they will truly live. But for this to take place, a master must first mystically baptize or initiate a soul. IN essence, this is an entirely inward affair and can be likened to the tuning of radio to a particular wavelength. The radio has the capacity to receive signals but must first be tuned. This is the “baptism from heaven” (matt. 21:25) spoken by Jesus and which is required before a soul can ascend through the heavens and reach the kingdom of heaven, God.

    your brother in absolute reality,

    william

  7. Bro. eli,

    Peace!

    You wrote: “Prophets and seer in the Bible, through God’s spirit, were able to see dreams and visions foretelling exactly what will happen in the farthest future

    my response: Yes, I agree with you brod. eli’ -that the Bible particularly in the old testament remote viewing – the ability to see and describe place or event without being there can be hinted particularly by Prophet Elisha in Kings Chapter 5.

    Telekinises also – the ability or power to affect or move an object without using physical force, we can find it in the same book of II kings by prophet Elisha.

    And amazingly the Bible also proves that talking to the Dead (spirit communication) is a reality (Samuel chapter 28).

    Well, even our beloved Jesus christ showed us his Paranormal Powers. He is a perfect yogi (of course because a mystic is a perfect yogi but not otherwise)

    Telepathy – mateo 12:25
    exorcism- mateo 7:16
    telekinesis -mark 10:12
    precognition- mateo 26:34
    clairvoyance and psychic reading- john 4:16-19
    divine alchemy- john 2:1-11
    teleportation- john 6:21
    levitation -(walking in the water) he taught peter of kosher yoga
    materialization – (feeding the multitude)
    paranormal healing -( no need to explain)

    Well, some says the Jesus Christ was able to perform those supernatural things because he is God. While in the light of esoteric analysis consider the ff: (focus on the mystical implication)

    he said:

    “The words that I have done, you can do, and much more than these”

    in another occasion he said:

    “If you have a faith of a mustard seed you can move mountain”

    And therefore anyone could also do the same, if they have strong faith and trust in him

    This is probably the reason why Jesus had asked his disciples not to stop a man they saw healing and casting out demons in his name although the latter did not belong to their group. Jesus explained let me quote:

    “do not stop him, for one who does a deed of power in my name will be able soon afterwards to speak evil of me.”

    But no matter how we analyze the whole scenario in its mystical sense , all the religious preachers of today object to psychic phenomena (like what Aplgreenlass experience)
    and consider these to be the work of the devil.

    and consider these to be the work of the devil.

    ——————————————————————————-

    You misunderstood only the intentions of some religious preacher what they want to emphasize is what Jesus christ said in;

    “For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” (Matthew 24:24)

    Fortune or future telling, healing, casting out demons, and moving mountains — what’s the big deal of this great signs and wonder. ( This thing leads only to one congregation or group and they are called X- MEN or SUPER FRIENDS)

    As what Jesus said:

    “Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.” (Luke 10:20)

    And this should be our full talent to be waste to find the kingdom od GOD.

  9. The future can actually be seen, but it is beyond the capacity of man to know what is the specific event that would happen. It doesn’t mean that the term “future” predicts only one event or circumstance. For example, when you will be taking your prescribed medicine, there are three “futures” that you should expect: 1) to get well, 2) nothing happens, and 3) to get worse instead of better.

    For us to know what the future might bring, we must rely on FACTS, not by other bizzare means which are post hoc to the desired outcome (e.g. flipping of the coin to love compatibility). There are those who asks the coin, where heads means “yes” and tails means “no”, that even they got 5 yeses, or 10, or 15, or 20, simplly are MERELY coincidences (I’m just wondering if they ever tried it up to 100th attempt of straight “heads” or straight “tails” without fail). I knew someone who asked a coin what would be God’s answer to him, referring to Proverbs 16:33 and Acts 1:23-26.

    Nevertheless, we MUST see two “futures” that awaits us: either everlasting life or shame and everlasting contempt (Daniel 12:2), which depends on what would be our choice between life and death, between blessing and cursing. “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live: (Deuteronomy 30:19)”

    We knew probably what are those “futures”, but we don’t know which of those will happen in the future, of course, it depends on us. But, for God, no matter what happens, His future will always be His victory.

    To God be the Glory!

  10. TO: William

    my response: Brother, You are already inside that church but still, you were unable to give me satisfactory answers (either biblically, reasonably, rationally and logically) for all my queries most especially on the issues of St. Paul.

    ——————————————————————————-

    I will answer you in two ways:

    Queries: You allegedly say that saint paul double face saint peter and so on so forth gossip.

    1.) My first answer is, that gossip is not absolutely true.

    why? no need for explaination as what Jesus Christ said:

    “And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:” (Matthew 12:25)

    “And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?” (Mathew 12:26)

    2.) Granting that it is true just for the sake of argument.

    Then what’s the matter of that fact, it just only justified the truthfulness of GOD word that “So the last shall be first, and the first last: for many be called, but few chosen.” (Matthew 20:16)

    We can’t deny the fact that there are so many times Jesus Christ scolding his 12 appointed (i.e. saint peter) apostle and in fact one of them become rebel which is Judas Iscariote.

    Here are the following sample(scold):

    Matthew 16:7-11
    Matthew 16:22-23
    Matthew 26:40-43
    Matthew 26:34

    And now its my turn also to ask query unto you.

    Between Saint peter and saint Paul who among the two perform the following statement of Jesus Christ:

    Mt:20:26: But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;

    in short who among them labor most for the ministry?

    As when our lord Jesus Christ said:

    Blessed are the merciful because they can obtained mercy.

    Saint Paul interpreted it by its time that:

    More blessed are those giver than those recepient.

    or in layman term ” It’s better to give than to receive”:

    EYES

  11. to william:

    you have quoted what the Lord Jesus christ had said:

    “The words that I have done, you can do, and much more than these”

    it’s true for it is the word of the Lord Jesus Christ, but my question is, which things will be done by HIS followers more than what he have done? is it these things that you said, these
    Telepathy – mateo 12:25
    exorcism- mateo 7:16
    telekinesis -mark 10:12
    precognition- mateo 26:34
    clairvoyance and psychic reading- john 4:16-19
    divine alchemy- john 2:1-11
    teleportation- john 6:21
    levitation -(walking in the water) he taught peter of kosher yoga
    materialization – (feeding the multitude)
    paranormal healing -( no need to explain)

    i believe these are not the things to be done by HIS followers more than HE has done coz it says in the bible…
    “Therefore let us leave the elementary doctrine of Christ and go on to maturity, not laying again a foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God,”
    “and of instruction about washings, the laying on of hands, the resurrection of the dead, and eternal judgment.” HEB. 6:1-2

    what the followers must do now is …..
    “So then, as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone, and especially to those who are of the household of faith.” GAL. 6:10

    and with these things, the bible is explaining that there is someone doing good to you, don’t let it slip away…..

    “If you turn at my reproof, behold, I will pour out my spirit to you; I will make my words known to you.”
    “Because I have called and you refused to listen, have stretched out my hand and no one has heeded,”
    “because you have ignored all my counsel and would have none of my reproof,”
    “I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when terror strikes you,”
    “when terror strikes you like a storm and your calamity comes like a whirlwind, when distress and anguish come upon you.”
    “Then they will call upon me, but I will not answer; they will seek me diligently but will not find me.” PROV. 1:23-28

    be well and GOD bless.

  12. Brother,

    Peace!

    YOu wrote: Queries: You allegedly say that saint paul double face saint peter and so on so forth gossip.1.) My first answer is, that gossip is not absolutely true.

    my response: It’s not a gossip brother, Its real, for your information it is written in Galatian chapter 2 written by paul himself.

    “But when peter was come to antioch I withstood him to the face because he was to be blamed But when i saw that they walked not uprightly to the truth of the gospel……. (read the whole chapter)
    ——————————————————————————-

    you wrote: in short who among them labor most for the ministry?

    my response: Yes, it is true they were together at one time but not later. Granting also that it is true just for the sake of argument So, you are saying that paul really labored the most? And thereby indirectly saying that the
    apostles of Jesus christ combined were all lazy?

    St. paul said:

    “ I think that I am not in the least inferior to these superlative apostle”

    Who are the “others” OR THE SUPERLATIVE APOSTLES?
    to whom he is not an apostle?

    “Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? If to others I am not an apostle, at least I am to you; for you are the seal of my apostleship in the Lord ”

    And therefore on the later part of their story, Paul has its own ministry, his so called church with many pastors, ministers. etc. etc. for them He is an apostle…And brod. eli affiliated to that church and so you belong to that ministry! You are a certified member of Pauline christianity.

    ——————————————————————————-

    you wrote: We can’t deny the fact that there are so many times Jesus Christ scolding his 12 appointed (i.e. saint peter) apostle and in fact one of them become rebel which is
    Judas Iscariote.

    my response: True! He is the shepherd. But paul has not right to correct any of the direct apostles. Have you heard any conflict between the direct apostles of Jesus? like for e.g. John saying that Peter walked not uprightly in the light of the gospel? or thomas saying that he labored more abundantly than Peter? None at all! Why? because all certified apostles are solid to one another. and therefore Jesus was right when he said: “And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house divided against itself shall not stand:” (Matthew 12:25).And if Satan cast out Satan, he is divided against himself; how shall then his kingdom stand?” (Mathew 12:26) . Paul was not one of them in essence even when He was accepted, Paul has his own agenda as revealed by his own Jesus christ.

  13. Brother,

    Peace!

    You wrote: believe these are not the things to be done by HIS followers (showing paranormal feats) more than HE has done coz it says in the bible…( # 12)

    my response: Yes, I agree with you brother that there are things more important than those juggler’s tricks commonly performed by the yogis ! But to consider that all paranormal phenomena of our time are the works of the devil is absolutely wrong. Anyone who says that all paranormal things of today are always the work of satan is not only stupid but ignorant of his own ignorance. Yes, it can be work of the devil, for instance our lord Jesus christ told us:

    Jesus said: He shew “sign and wonders”( matthew 24:24):

    “the signs of a true apostle were performed among you in all patience,with SIGNS AND WONDERS and mighty works. (2 Cor. 12: 12)

    So even the false apostle shew “sign and wonders”. Our Lord Jesus Christ foretold everything. It is almost amusing to perceive how Paul walked boldy into the bright light without intending to do so. thus exposing himself for what he is.

    But of course there are supernatural things coming from God. Before, during and after the time of the real apostles. Supernatural things are performed by the mystics with the help of their inner spiritual power, they always act for the good of others and not for showing feats.

    It is true mesmerism, hypnotism and the like imply concentration of mind and attention but its soul current is focused outside while the soul current of a true devotee of the lord who’s practicing the “Path of the Holy Spirit” is focused inside oneself in his temple from within, and thereby using it for spiritual uplift. those devotee muster up their spirit
    energy and utilize it for their betterment and spiritual awakening while the yogis use it for external purposes for showing feats, those yogis possess miraculous powers of levitation, suspension of breath, sustenance without food etc. etc. and because their “little wealth’ is used outside, sooner or later they will become blank.

    Always remember brother, Ascent is always inwards, outside it is all physical phenomena. And to indulge in the jugglery of supernatural feats, the mystics feel ashamed. It is of little use in true spirituality for it does not take us beyond delusion.

    my response: Brother, the real apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ were not lazy nor misguided as claimed by the self-proclaimed apostle- Paul of tarsus. They walked uprightly in the light of Jesus’ Gospel and they did their job very well. As a matter of scriptures, Jesus told them: let me quote:

    ” I know thy works and thy labor and thy patience and how thou canst not bear them, which are evil; and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles and are not, and hast found them liars.”

  15. Brother kaDyords,

    In the light of mystical viewpoint consider the ff:

    “But when you pray, go into your room (our body -temple of the living God where God dwelleth) and shut the door ( close the nine apertures focus on the single eye. “If thine eye be single it shall be full of light”) and pray to your Father who is in secret; (Be still)and your Father who sees in secret will reward you ( Yes, because it is the real worship, God is spirit and worship HIM in spirit- Meditation )(Matthew 6:6)

    Meditation is indeed the real prayer.

    your brother in absolute reality,

    my answer:

    Mt:26:40: And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto PETER, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
    Mt:26:41: Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
    Mt:26:42: He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
    Mt:26:43: And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.
    Mt:26:44: And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.
    Mt:26:45: Then cometh he to his disciples, and saith unto them, Sleep on now, and take your rest: behold, the hour is at hand, and the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners.

    you wrote: my response, True! He is the shepherd. But paul has not right to correct any of the direct apostles. Have you heard any conflict between the direct apostles of Jesus? like for e.g. John saying that Peter walked not uprightly in the light of the gospel? or thomas saying that he labored more abundantly than Peter? None at all! Why? because all certified apostles are solid to one another.

    my answer:

    Jn:21:15: So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my LAMBS.
    Jn:21:16: He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep.
    Jn:21:17: He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my SHEEP.

    lambs — are the new recruit or member.
    Sheeps — are the veterans like fellow apostle
    feed — to preach, to correct or to council through to the true meaning of the words of GOD.

    you wrote: Yes, it is true they were together at one time but not later. Granting also that it is true just for the sake of argument So, you are saying that paul really labored the most? And thereby indirectly saying that the
    apostles of Jesus christ combined were all lazy?

    my answer:

    I am not talking here about laziness what I’m querry is?

    Between Saint peter and saint Paul who among the two perform the following statement of Jesus Christ:

    Mt:20:26: But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister;

    in short who among them labor most for the ministry?

    in relation to these verses:

    Mt:13:12: For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath.

    and: Matthew 26:40-45

    you wrote: It’s not a gossip brother, Its real, for your information it is written in Galatian chapter 2 written by paul himself.

    my answer:

    What I emphasize that it is gossip because the true or the hidden meaning of that verses is not being deliver or justified.

    you wrote: Brother kindly post the verse, coz With regards to mercy paul saith: “it depends not upon man’s will or exertion but upon God’s mercy. So then he has mercy upon whomever he will and he hardens the heart of whoever he wills ( Rom. 9:16-18)

    my answer:

    Jn:6:44: No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.

    So if the FATHER in heaven which don’t have mercy unto you.

    Then you will not be enroll in this church.

  17. Thank you very much for your question regarding dream that some do happen in reality.

    With all humility, I would like also to share same to what you’ve had experienced. some are terrifying dreams and made me tremble as I was awaken by it.

    They may sound as if boasting, but one account happend and I collected some copies of the news paper right after that account of the tsunami last December 2005 and that I shared it to my family during 2001 and I must admit that not all details happend as bro. Eli ask you and same is my honest answer.

    May I share also, as one person whom i know that he had in his hand, the palm, a star both left and right, does that star has any connection to what is happening to that man?

    Also, one is that he had formula as to come-up with a word regarding the arch enemy of The Bible.

    May I also share a little story;

    There was a group that was established in India year 1936 and that what he had was same as their founder’s ability, however he made no connection to any god of their belief. This group started in the Philippines 1986 and was introduced to him and there he found out that what his family call him during his childhood days, “crazy”, was untrue and thus vendication! I firmly believed that whatever things that might be considered supernatural or gifts above normal humans, when compared to the Bible are nothing.

    Brother Eli, GOD Willing in CHRIST, I am more willing to let you see that hand. May you enlighten my soul with GOD’s Help in CHRIST and I am now a member of the CHURCH.

    More Power to you brother Eli

    GOD Bless in CHRIST

    “my response: Yes, I agree with you brother that there are things more important than those juggler’s tricks commonly performed by the yogis ! But to consider that all paranormal phenomena of our time are the works of the devil is absolutely wrong. Anyone who says that all paranormal things of today are always the work of satan is not only stupid but ignorant of his own ignorance. Yes, it can be work of the devil, for instance our lord Jesus christ told us:”

    and you know what is that important thing to do in relation with your absolute reality thing?

    “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” MAT. 6:33

    “for every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” MAT. 7:8

    “For I say, through the grace that was given me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think as to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to each man a measure of faith.” ROMANS 12:3

    and you know one paranormal thing that happen? there is you….

  19. All the possibilitiesalready exists in the universe. You just have to concentrate on what possibility you want to exist on.

    Watch “What the bleep do we know- Down the rabbit hole” and you’ll see what I mean.

  20. We must not fully trust in our own conceit.

    Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
    Proverbs 3:5
    King James Version

  21. I subscribe to what Bro Eli said about visions, dreams,etc. The sharpest minds are nothing compared to what GOD can do. Personally, I think, if ever one has visions or dreams that becomes a reality in the future, then it is a good case study. One has to record immediately the details everytime that a dream or vision is experienced. It could save lives and souls, who knows. Honestly, i have never meet a person who has proven that what he dreamed of became a reality, except people who wanted to glorify themselves for personal gains. We have plenty of them in the Philippines who floated the ‘stories’ of their alledged dreams and visions, and all ended up not only as fortune or future tellers, but also as ‘fake’ doctors exacting fees from unsuspecting and medically rejected patients. One such person was a pastor of a church who claimed that some rebels will surrender to him. When he went up to the rebel’s lair, the pastor who foretold of many unproven claims ended up as a hostage. and caused more problems. If it is true that some people can see the future, then they must be thankful for receiving such gift, imagine one out of the millions to be accorded such a power; ask yourself why you, what have you done to merit such a gift. In all honesty, if it is true, then we pray that you use it to help Bro Eli’s and Bro Daniel’s crusade of supporting the poor, the sick, the victims of injustices and persecutions; help in spreading the TRUTH and the WORDS OF GOD. Just imagine the great relief and safety of the many who can not rely on government and the ‘fake’ churches in times of earthquakes, typhoons and other calamities. The corrupt and ineffecient officials in the Philippines might hire you to predict when and where ‘terrorist’ bombs are planted, or help the DOJ determine who the real criminals are. How I wish that such people really exist. At any rate, if we will only LISTEN, READ, and BELIEVE IN THE BIBLE through Bro Eli, I am very sure that GOD will help us see the FUTURE OF SALVATION, and the other things that GOD wants us to see. Thank you Bro Eli for your strength and resolve to go on with your crusade to spread the TRUTH and the WORDS OF GOD at a very limited time, space, money, and other needs, risking your life, health, and personal comforts, especially at this times when the enemies of the TRUE CHRIST and the CHURCH OF GOD International are doing every dirty trick to stop you Bro Eli at all cost. GOD will save you and protect you Bro Eli, Bro Daniel and members of the MCGI. GOD IS GREAT, POWERFULL AND ALMIGHTY.
