God is Not the Author of Confusion


blogbadge.jpg

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

But would you believe that in order to execute God’s will for people to populate, fill, and subdue the earth, God ‘confused’ the only one language of people living on earth in those times? This is how the story goes.

(Genesis 11:1-8 ) And the whole earth was of one language, and of one speech. And it came to pass, as they journeyed from the east, that they found a plain in the land of Shinar; and they dwelt there. And they said one to another, Go to, let us make brick, and burn them throughly. And they had brick for stone, and slime had they for mortar. And they said, Go to, let us build us a city and a tower, whose top may reach unto heaven; and let us make us a name, lest we be scattered abroad upon the face of the whole earth. And the LORD came down to see the city and the tower, which the children of men built. And the LORD said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do. Go to, let us go down, and there confound their language, that they may not understand one another’s speech. So the LORD scattered them abroad from thence upon the face of all the earth: and they left off to build the city.

God’s command to the family of Noah to repopulate or replenish the earth is ecologically sound. People must not only inhabit a particular place and let the other places of the earth be dominated by beasts and wild animals. Humankind, and not beast, must subdue the earth.

(Ezekiel 14:13,15) Son of man, when the land sinneth against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof, and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it: If I cause noisome beasts to pass through the land, and they spoil it, so that it be desolate, that no man may pass through because of the beasts…

Because of their apparent resistance on God’s will, God confused their language. That event that happened in the Tower of Babel saw the birth of different nations and languages in the human family. The rest is history.

Historically, there are four groups of ancient languages.

———–

Quick Facts:

Linguists divide the Semitic languages into four groups. The North Peripheral group is represented by the Assyro-Babylonian language, or Akkadian. The oldest attested Semitic language, with the oldest Semitic literature, Akkadian was spoken in Mesopotamia between about 3000 bc and 600-400 bc and used as a literary language until the 1st century ad.

The North Central group includes the ancient and modern Hebrew language; ancient tongues such as Ugaritic and Phoenician; and the Aramaic language, including Syriac, or Christian Aramaic.

The South Central group consists of literary or Standard Arabic and the modern spoken Arabic dialects (see Arabic Language). Maltese, an offshoot of Arabic, is spoken on the island of Malta and, because of its location, has been heavily influenced by Italian.

The South Peripheral group consists of the South Arabic dialects, now spoken in parts of the southern Arabian Peninsula (and in ancient times by peoples such as the Minaeans and Sabaeans); and the languages of Ethiopia. The latter include Ge’ez, or classical Ethiopic, now surviving only as a literary and liturgical language; Amharic, the official language of Ethiopia; and regional Ethiopian languages such as Tigré, Tigrinya, and Gurage.

Because of the confusion that happened, they were forced to scatter to all the habitable face of the earth. A group that does not understand the language or the speech of another group, was forced to depart and separate themselves as a group.

Another question arises: If humankind came from only one family, why the difference in color, physical features, etc.

The Bible tells us the root-cause and not necessarily the results. The results can be obtained in reality. Apparent reality can be traced back to the root-cause.

Mathematically, the more than six billion people that now populate the entire earth came from a much smaller stock in the early 19th century, about six hundred million, and further, from eight souls that survived the great flood.

(1 Peter 3:20) Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.

Is there, by any chance, that a family may grow up to a huge global population of different colors, breeds, cultures, and physical features? The answer is, reality; but how?

The color of the skin is influenced by the environment. In places where there is abundance of scorching sunlight, people’s skin can turn darker.

(Songs of Solomon 1:6) Look not upon me, because I am black, because the sun hath looked upon me: my mother’s children were angry with me; they made me the keeper of the vineyards; but mine own vineyard have I not kept.

It may take a thousand years for the complete blackening of the skin of a particular race. No wonder there are now in reality black people because the human family have existed on earth for many thousands of years.

———–

Quick Facts:

Jablonski and Chaplin proposed an explanation for the observed variation of untanned human skin with annual UV exposure. By Jablonski and Chaplin’s explanation, there are two competing forces affecting human skin tone:

1. the melanin that produces the darker tones of human skin serves as a light filter to protect against too much UV light getting under the human skin where too much UV causes sunburn and disrupts the synthesis of precursors necessary to make human DNA; versus

2. humans need at least a minimum threshold of UV light to get deep under human skin to produce vitamin D, which is essential for building and maintaining the bones of the human skeleton.

Jablonski and Chaplin note that when human indigenous peoples have migrated, they have carried with them a sufficient gene pool so that within a thousand years, the skin of their descendants living today has turned dark or turned light to adapt to fit the formula given above–with the notable exception of dark-skinned peoples moving north, such as to populate the seacoast of Greenland, to live where they have a year-round supply of food rich in vitamin D, such as fish, so that there was no necessity for their skin to lighten to let enough UV under their skin to synthesize the vitamin D that humans need for healthy bones.

———-

Quick Facts:

The belief of the Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Seventh-Day Adventists that the human family is only about six thousand years old is wrong. It is belied by physical evidences obtained recently by archaeologist.

The Bible shows that we are nearing the end of a full 6,000 years of human history. Awake!, October 8, 1968, p. 13-14 of the Jehovah’s Witnesses

The Mayan culture is believed to have existed in the American continent some thirty-five thousand years ago.

———–

Quick Facts:

Ancient Mayan Civilization

Perhaps as early as 35,000 years ago, nomadic people came from Asia to the Americas across the frozen Bering Strait. In the course of many millennia, their descendants settled in and adapted to different environments, creating many cultures in North America, Central America, and South America. The Mayan culture emerged in the lowland area of the Yucatán Peninsula and the highlands to the south, in what is now southeastern Mexico, Guatemala, western Honduras, and Belize. Many aspects of this culture persist in the area despite nearly half a millennium of European domination. All evidence, whether from archaeology, history, ethnography, or linguistic studies, points to a cultural continuity in this region. The descendants of the first settlers in the area have lived there for at least three millennia. http://www.country-studies.com/belize/ancient-mayan-civilization.html

The question about different skin colors can biblically and scientifically be explained; But what about the different physical feature? All this on our next article.

  1. Amen…. Awesome!!!

    God is an Exact God!

    thats why his Messenger in our Time
    Is an Exact..Preacher..

    For our exhortation is not of error, nor of uncleanness, nor in guile:but even as we have been approved of God to be intrusted with the gospel, so we speak; not as pleasing men, but God who proveth our hearts.

    I Thessalonians 2:3-4

    Give diligence to present thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, handling aright the word of truth.

    II Timothy 2:15

    If any man willeth to do his will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of God, or whether I speak from myselfHe that speaketh from himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh the glory of him that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him.

    John 7:17-18

    Thanks Be to God For Sending Bro.Eli and Bro.Daniel..

  2. God will never contradict himself.

    For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.

    James 3:16

    And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.

    The Romans 16:20

  3. A question just came into my head in connection with the previous post of bro eli. if all of the races and cultures today rose from the 8 souls that were saved then are we all israelites?

    hmmm.. now i’m getting confused with the chronology of the biblical events

  4. I can’t help but think that tongue confusion is a plan of God to to produce the Filipino dialects. Thus, an overseer was born, Brother Eliseo Soriano and the brethrens in faith. Agree, anyone?

  5. Sorry if my comment # 12 offended anyone. What I meant is that if many can’t see the positive effect of the confusion in tongue, some might noticed that all things work together for good for the sake of those who loves God.

    To “LetUsReason”,

    if you are black, my opinion still stands, why, hey, you are still reading and learning from Bro Eli’s blog right?

    God bless!

  6. To comment #8. if you think that we can be israelites due to the genealogies, then it might follow too that we are also have the seed of angels. But then again, we are admonished to think about genealogies.

    1 Timothy 1:

    3As I urged you when I went into Macedonia, stay there in Ephesus so that you may command certain men not to teach false doctrines any longer 4nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies. These promote controversies rather than God’s work—which is by faith. 5The goal of this command is love, which comes from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. 6Some have wandered away from these and turned to meaningless talk. 7They want to be teachers of the law, but they do not know what they are talking about or what they so confidently affirm.

    When you are born again, you are a new creature.

    Titus 3:

    1Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, 2to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility toward all men.

    3At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 4But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6whom he poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. 8This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in God may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good. These things are excellent and profitable for everyone.

    9But avoid foolish controversies and genealogies and arguments and quarrels about the law, because these are unprofitable and useless. 10Warn a divisive person once, and then warn him a second time. After that, have nothing to do with him. 11You may be sure that such a man is warped and sinful; he is self-condemned.

    But in Christ there is no Jew nor Gentiles.

    Romans 3:9
    9What shall we conclude then? Are we any better[a]? Not at all! We have already made the charge that Jews and Gentiles alike are all under sin.

    Romans 3:29
    Is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too,

    Romans 9:24
    even us, whom he also called, not only from the Jews.

    What then separates Jews from Gentiles, biblical speaking?

    Galatians 2:14
    When I saw that they were not acting in line with the truth of the gospel, I said to Peter in front of them all, “You are a Jew, yet you live like a Gentile and not like a Jew. How is it, then, that you force Gentiles to follow Jewish customs?

  7. Brother Eli,

    I am concerned by some of the comments I have read on your blogs over the past few weeks. It seems as if you are being deified by your followers, and that your name is more elevated than the one you are proclaiming. This in no way reflects on you and I am not calling you out for anything, however I would encourage you to ask your followers to not see Brother Eli in your words, but to See God, because when you preach the word your becoming the mouthpiece for Christ. I respect and admire you like your followers, but I am also disheartened at how some of your followers are behaving the same way that John the Baptists followers tried to deify him. Anyways, that was just a concern. I am praying for you.

    Your Friend,

  8. Dear Brother Tim,

    First of all I want to comment on your email dated 25 October 2007 that we elevated Bro. Eli’s name more than the One he had proclaim.That’s just your personal opinion! Because if that scenario really happens, then I shouldn’t be here!

    Secondly, we are not defying or trying to defy Bro. Eli!. . . Bro. Tim
    I know your’re in God’s Ministry and my advise for you is, try to seek more, to search more in the Bible and listen more of Brother Eli’s Bible exposition / Doctrine and I’m sure you will end up dancing and singing and praising GOD (and not Bro. Eli) with real joy.

    Your friend,
    Julie Hibaya

  9. I am happy having read the comments of Tim Kurek who many months ago I thought. was critical of the TRUTH. Look what this blog of Bro Eli can do. Please have a bigger heart Tim to understand some members who have that very high regard and respect for Bro Eli. In our country, the Philippines, it is a common trait and value to observe debt, or what we call ‘utang na loob’. Many of us came from differrent religions, and it is through Bro Eli that we came upon the TRUTH. Even with that ‘debt’, we will never make a diety out of Bro Eli because he himself does not like it. He even admonish us and others not to call him reverend nor father [for there is only one FATHER in heaven], or any other title arrogantly taken or appropriated to themselves by other leaders of false churches. He simply wants to be addressed Brother Eli. He does not take personal credit for the overwhelming growth of the CHURCH OF GOD International, nor the conversion of the multitude, but he continue to give GLORY and HONOR to GOD ALMIGHTY whom he credit for all the unstoppable growth and spread of the TRUE WORDS OF GOD, inspite of the risks and dangers to life, health and personal comforts. The verses mentioned by Bro Eli will suffice to convince everybody that GOD , in HIS own myterious and sometimes unfathomable ways, is AUTHOR of peace, order, and love, and never confusion. Let us all with understanding support Bro Eli, Bro Daniel and the CHURCH OF GOD International in this herculean and difficult crusade of bringing the TRUTH and WORDS of GOD to as many people as possible through our GOD given gifts of talents, money and other resources, time is short brethrens. Thank you Bro Eli for your continuous fight against the evils of satan,. We pray for you always, your safety, health, fitness, and strength. THANK YOU SO MUCH LORD GOD, WE PRAISE YOU AND HONOR YOU.

  10. HI Mr. Tim Kurek,

    In some points i would agree with you. I am a member of Bro Eli and I dont even remember Bro Eli tolerating fanatics. He hates to be the center of exaltation.

    It just happens that we really love our preacher, because he really is the ONLY SENSIBLE AND GOD SENT MESSENGER.

    But for me, I would always remember the Biblical text in GALATIA, wherein Paul states, and i quote, “Even an angel from heaven or even apostles like us would teach a gospel different from what we have taught you before, be a reprobate!!!” I am holding on this text, and even bro eli does.

    If ever there are brethen that are fanatics, I assure you, all of us are PRO REIGHTEOUSNESS.

    To God be the Glory!

    Kirk

  11. Mr. Tim,

    That’s alright,

    I do apologize too If i ofended you.

    Just keep on the research, I could not always convince you that Bro Eli is the best, but you can always give a try to listen or to analyze the teachings.

    I assure you, he is always open for criticisms. He likes to be criticized in open air (figuratively) because he does not like to be criticized when he turns his back, (act of traitorship).

    God Bless Mr. Tim!!!

    to Gofd be the Glory!!!

    Your’s in Christ,

    Kirk

  12. Kirk,

    “It just happens that we really love our preacher, because he really is the ONLY SENSIBLE AND GOD SENT MESSENGER.”

    The only sensible and God sent messenger… That excludes some of the godliest men I have ever met, men that Eli would be proud to fight side by side with, and men that you could learn from. Stop making HUGE ignorant generalizations, please, for the reputation and sake of not making Bro Eli ever look bad. I had a friend read this and was immediately turned off because that was a very bad comment to make.

    Unless you have heard more preachers what an ignorant comment to make. I appreciate everything you said, but this is exactly what I am talking about. Even Bro. Eli would not like you to say this.

    Rhina,

    Thank you for your explanation and answer to my question… I appreciate it.

  13. Also all, please be in prayer for me as I am sick with a sickness called Mono. The doctors ordered 7 days bed rest… gotta love the fact that 7 is God’s number.

    tim

  14. We are not deceiving Bro Eli. We are humbling ourselves by showing respect because we have witnessed,
    distinguished and accepted the fact that in comparisson to other preachers, we haven’t heard anyone, living in this generation, who can rightly divide the word of Truth! All these for the glory of the God of Israel, our Father.

    And if you think you have met some, like Bro Eli, then, make your move NOW to make Bro Eli known to them. Have initiative for them to talk for the good of those who love God.

    But then again, I noticed that you did invited a friend to read in this blog. With all the wisdom provided here, am I right to say that the only thing he found unacceptable are our comments for Bro Eli one as being the most sensible preacher of our time?

    But if I am right too to say that you were not able to explain to your friend why we do such a thing, it maybe due to a fact that even you doubt Bro Eli’s stature as a preacher and as a sent by God.

    You can differentiate the flawless preaching, when one topic under the sun will not contradict any teachings from the bible. And that is our Bro Eli Soriano. He was given the “grace” just like St Paul, he can’t explain why he was chosen but is very grateful that he has been moving forward to attain his utmost potential in the Church of God.

    2 timothy 3:

    10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.

    13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived.

    14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them,

    15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

    16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

    Every word in the Holy Scriptures are carefully taken into consideration. Read 2 timothy 3 and you will notice how you can distinguish the folly of those who think that they are of God. But how can you distinguish them if you haven’t heard of the preaching of the one sent the correctly dividing the truth?

    And may God heal you at the right time. I pray the your heart will not be hardened. God knows your perseverance to do what is right and true.

    1 Timothy 6:

    20Timothy, guard what has been entrusted to your care.

    Turn away

    from godless chatter and

    the opposing ideas of

    what is falsely called knowledge,

    21which some have professed and in so doing have wandered from the faith.

    1 Timothy 3:

    7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.

  15. 1 Corinthians 1
    1Paul, called to be an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God, and our brother Sosthenes,

    2To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ—their Lord and ours:

    3Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

    4I always thank God for you because of his grace given you in Christ Jesus. 5For in him you have been enriched in every way—in all your speaking and in all your knowledge—

    6because our testimony about Christ was confirmed in you.

    7Therefore you do not lack any spiritual gift as you eagerly wait for our Lord Jesus Christ to be revealed. 8He will keep you strong to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God, who has called you into fellowship with his Son Jesus Christ our Lord, is faithful.
    Divisions in the Church
    10I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought. 11My brothers, some from Chloe’s household have informed me that there are quarrels among you. 12What I mean is this: One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephas”; still another, “I follow Christ.”

    13Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized into the name of Paul? 14I am thankful that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, 15so no one can say that you were baptized into my name. 16(Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I don’t remember if I baptized anyone else.) 17For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not with words of human wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.

    18For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19For it is written:
    “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;
    the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”

    20Where is the wise man? Where is the scholar? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. 22Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look for wisdom, 23but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25For the foolishness of God is wiser than man’s wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than man’s strength.

    26Brothers, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. 27But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. 28He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, 29so that no one may boast before him. 30It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. 31Therefore, as it is written: “Let him who boasts boast in the Lord.”

  16. To Bro Tim,

    I just want to say something on your comment #25. In our country alone, their are lot of religious sect or group that most of us previously belong, and some of our brethrens were atheist. But we thank our God we were called in His church after searching of the truth for so many years. We have heard and compared the teachings of other preachers (i.e INC, JIL,Catholics, Protestants, Jehovahs Witness, Adventist, Baptist, Mormons and many more) and Bro Eli. Furthermore, we have brethren live or work in Europe, Australia, North America, the Carribean, and we now have African brothers/sisters. Everytime we have a weekly thanksgiving, we witnessed how our brethren all over the world proved that our preacher is the only best. I am sorry to hear that your friend was turned off by some of my brethren’s comment. But we always have basis in our claims. I hope with my explanations some of your concerns was addressed, and I do pray on your recovery from your sickness.
    To God be the Glory.

  17. To Mr. Tim,

    With all due respect to everyone, everybody is entitled to her/his own personal and unsolicited opinion and advice. Well, if your friend got offended with the posted comments of our brethren in exalting and thanking God for sending Bro.Eli and for giving the title, ¨The ONLY SENSIBLE PREACHER in Our Time¨ which for some is an act or attempt of DEIFYING Bro. Eli, well, I respect his opinion and his instant over action and reaction. But I would like to set this clear that APPREACIATING is different from DIEFYING. Lets learn a little grammar. Lets take these for a while:

    * Ap·pre·ci·ate [uh-pree´-shee-eyt] verb, -at·ed, -at·ing.
    > 1. to be grateful or thankful for: They appreciated his thoughtfulness.
    > 2. verb (used with object) to value or regard highly; place a high estimate on: to appreciate good wine.
    > 3. to be fully conscious of; be aware of; detect: to appreciate the dangers of a situation.
    > 4. to raise in value.
    > 5. verb (used without object) to increase in value:

    * De·i·fy [dee´-uh-fahy] verb (used with object), -fied, -fy·ing.
    > 1. to make a god of; exalt to the rank of a deity; personify as a deity: to deify a beloved king.
    > 2. to adore or regard as a deity: to deify wealth.

    To appreciate something or someone and giving him a title that is DUE/OWE to it/her/him is Biblical for as long as it conforms with Scriptural Truths and God´s standards and permission (Romans 13:7)
    ________________
    ¨7Give everyone what you OWE him: If you owe taxes, pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.¨ (KJV).

    The God of the Bible is the most exact and logical God. God´s righteousness were distorted by satan to the extent of inventing and fabricating his counterfeits that compete and try to ruin which are of God´s but satan will never succeed and will ultimately be failed forever. Examples: Holy Kiss (Rom. 16:16) vs. Malicious/Judas Kiss (Mat. 26:49) , Life (John 14:6) vs. Death (Rev. 6:8), Eternity (Ps. 93:2/Prov. 8:23/Ecc. 3:11) vs. Mortality (Rom.1:21) , etc.. and Holy Boast/Glory vs. Wicked Boast/Glory (Jeremiah 9:23-24
    ______________
    ¨23 This is what the LORD says:
    “Let not the wise man BOAST of his wisdom
    or the strong man boast of his strength
    or the rich man boast of his riches,
    24 but let him who boasts BOAST about this:
    that he understands and knows me,
    that I am the LORD, who exercises kindness,
    justice and righteousness on earth,
    for in these I delight,”
    declares the LORD. ¨ (NIV)

    ______________
    ¨23Thus saith the LORD, Let not the wise man GLORY in his wisdom, neither let the mighty man glory in his might, let not the rich man glory in his riches:
    24But let him that glorieth GLORY in this, that he understandeth and knoweth me, that I am the LORD which exercise lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth: for in these things I delight, saith the LORD. ¨ (KJV)

    God permits His WISE peoples WHO HAVE UNDERSTANDING in these LAST DAYS (Daniel 12:9:10)
    ________________
    ¨9And he said, Go thy way, Daniel: for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
    10Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly: and NONE of the WICKED shall understand; but the WISE shall UNDERSTAND.¨ (KJV)

    to boast or glory for many reasons like the lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness, in the earth; and ultimately the best examples of Gods´s lovingkindness, judgment, etc. is having Bro. Eli as our sensible, singular notable preacher in this perilous dispensation of this last days (2 Timothy 3:1-3)
    ________________
    ¨1This know also, that in the last days PERILOUS TIMES shall come.
    2For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy,
    3Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good,¨ (KJV).

    But we don´t think your friend Mr. Tim is Godly and wise because if he is, he must be rational and logical. He should not focus on the things he perceived to be negative for him. For the righteous man seeks good things only (Proverbs 11:23)
    _________________
    ¨23The desire of the righteous is only good: but the expectation of the wicked is wrath.¨ (KJV).

    He should ask why this people said so and seek for the logical and Biblically sound answers. I can´t help but make to believe and attest what the Bible and Jesus Christ have said that the one who was offended with God´s word is NOT of God (John 8:47, 43)

    ¨47He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
    ¨44YE ARE OF YOUR FATHER the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.¨”(KJV)

    For the righteous and even the PERFECT MAN wont be offended to any of God Word (James 3:2)
    _________________
    ¨2For in many things we offend all. If any man OFFEND NOT in word, the same is a PERFECT MAN, and able also to bridle the whole body.¨(KJV)

    For NOT ALL MEN can ACCEPT the words of God but those who were GIVEN only (Matthew 19:11)
    ________________
    ¨11But he said unto them, All men cannot receive this saying, save they to whom it is given.¨

    If you love your friend, I entreat you to please advice your friend and encourage him to continue what he has started for if he willcontinue to be offended then, the words of God I quoted above will manifest in his being. we are much concern of his salvation, moreso with Bro. Eli.

    May the will of God, the God of Israel, the Almighty God reign and will enlighten us all!!!

    Hurray!!! Thanks be to God for His workings in Bro. Eli´s life and crudsades! Thanks for all His unspeakable and unfathomable gifts!!! (2 Corinthians 9:15) To God be all the glory!!! (Jude 1:25)

  18. X-ian.d.hungry.thirtsy.soul,

    Thank you so much for giving me a grammar lesson… I mean its not like an English major would know that already.

    So when the spirit kicks me in the gut and says something is not write with what I am reading, I am wrong? You are right, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but I don’t believe anyone should make such an ignorant statement. Bro Eli would disagree wholeheartedly with that statement.

  19. I think we should focus on the topic, of what we know and learned.

    Here’s Bro Tim Kurek who has never given his stand based on what he learned and from whom he learned of what a non-hypocrite christian should become and should say.

    Bro Tim Kurek, I think you are the one moderating your blog’s comment areas and deciding which comment shall remain and deleted.

    http://uriahministries.wordpress.com/2007/10/26/to-my-dearest-wormwoods/#comments

    I hope that my comment that is supposed to be an anwer to your last answer was just deleted mistakenly or remained unread by you. Because if not, this is a proof of hypocrisy. After saying a personal attack on me and if my answer to that attack will not be permitted to stand, obviously, it is you who is trying to destroy instead of build up a rational and biblical conversation or argument.

    So, for this reason, it’s the proper time to let us know your stand! We are talking about what you believe in.

    1 Thessalonians 5:2
    for you know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night.

  20. To Bro Tim,

    You are right, we are all entitled in our opinion. But as you can see the brethren are in unison regarding our claimed with our preacher. It only mean one thing. we are on the same page and were not making any ignorant statements. We always have basis in our claimed. As I have said before, we came from different religious denomination and heard many different preachers, and I can proudly say, Bro Eli and Bro Daniel is incomparable and we ARE thanking our GOD for sending them in our MIDST. To God Be The Glory.

  21. To Bro Tim,

    It’s true, we are all entitled in our opinion. But as you can see the brethren are in unison in our claimed about our preacher, we are on the same page as you may notice, and we knew what we are talking and not claiming any ignorant statements. We have our basis. More so we came from different religious groups and heard many teachings and preachers before we heard Bro Eli and embraced God’s doctrine. We are very thankful to our God for sending Bro Eli and Bro Daniel in our midst, because they are incomparable. To God Be the Glory.

  22. I found the wife of Jesus Christ – a wife where I am affiliated with, a body where I am a part of: the Church of God.

    Proverbs 19:14 Houses and wealth are inherited from parents,
    but a prudent wife is from the LORD.

    Let me give Bro Tim some proverbs to ponder about in the spirit.

    Proverbs 19:
    1 Better a poor man whose walk is blameless
    than a fool whose lips are perverse.

    2 It is not good to have zeal without knowledge,
    nor to be hasty and miss the way.

    3 A man’s own folly ruins his life,
    yet his heart rages against the LORD.

    11 A man’s wisdom gives him patience;
    it is to his glory to overlook an offense.

    I pray that God forgive my sins. I remain an unworthy servant.

  23. If you have read even a single post of Bro Eli, more so, when you read it all, those posts are enough proof, even the verse below, that Bro Eli is concerned for our salvation and is warning as too of the danger/peril that a false teacher can lead us to. The same concern that he learned from the Apostles, the same who learned from Jesus Christ; by reading the Holy Scriptures with the guidance of the Holy Spirit and the holy men of God.

    Colossians 2:18-19 (The Message)

    Don’t tolerate people who try to run your life, ordering you to bow and scrape, insisting that you join their obsession with angels and that you seek out visions. They’re a lot of hot air, that’s all they are. They’re completely out of touch with the source of life, Christ, who puts us together in one piece, whose very breath and blood flow through us. He is the Head and we are the body. We can grow up healthy in God only as he nourishes us.

    Mga Taga-Colosas 2:18 (Ang Salita ng Diyos)

    18May taong nasisiyahan sa paggawa ng huwad na pagpapakumbaba at pagsamba sa mga anghel. Huwag ninyong hayaan ang gayong tao na dayain kayo at hindi ninyo makuha ang inyong gantimpala. Siya ay nagkukunwaring nakakita ng mga bagay na hindi naman niya nakita. Ang kaniyang isipang makalaman ay nagpalaki ng kaniyang ulo nang walang katuturan. 19Siya ay hindi nanatiling nakaugnay sa tunay na ulo, na kung saan ang buong katawan ay lumalago sa pamamagitan ng paglago na mula sa Diyos. Ito ay sa mga ibinibigay ng mga kasukasuan at ng mga litid na siyang nagpapalusog at nag-uugnay-ugnay sa buong katawan.

    Colossians 2:18-19 (English Standard Version)

    18Let no one disqualify you, insisting on asceticism and worship of angels, going on in detail about visions, puffed up without reason by his sensuous mind, 19and not holding fast to the Head, from whom the whole body, nourished and knit together through its joints and ligaments, grows with a growth that is from God.

    Colossians 2:18-19 (King James Version)

    18Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshipping of angels, intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind,

    19And not holding the Head, from which all the body by joints and bands having nourishment ministered, and knit together, increaseth with the increase of God.

  24. I feel so delighted to be more faithful in God’s Words in the Holy Scriptures. All human beings indeed descended from common men. Although many people are too skeptical about the origin of men and why men come in different physical attributes, the Bible is here to answer the questions through Bro. Eli, the messenger of God in these modern times.

  25. Thanks be to God Bro. Eli for another wonderful blog such as this. I didn’t know until now that they all traveled from the “east” before they were scattered into four groups of different languages.

    Humankind has to be scattered in all four corners of the world and they all came from the east.

    God bless you Bro. Eli.
