The Law of Life

Life is a word that describes the existence of anything that has the breath of God. Job 33:4:

“The Spirit of God hath made me, and the breath of the Almighty hath given me life.”

Individual life is dependent on somebody else’s life like taking the life of grasses to sustain the life of a cow, killing a cow to sustain human life and so on and ultimately from the original source of life. Psalms 145:16; Acts 17:28:

“Thou openest thine hand, and satisfiest the desire of every living thing.”

“For in him we live, and move, and have our being…”

Human life is sustained by so many factors. The right amount of gas including hydrogen and oxygen, the right amount of food including the “not so good to the taste buds”, the right amount of sleep and rest including meditation and self-awareness, and the right doses of God’s word including His reproof and correction. Matthew 4:4; II Timothy 3:15-16:

But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.”

“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:”

Human life on earth is also controlled and manipulated by various factors in nature. Time and environment have great influence in life. Time is spent in life and life is spent on time. A life that should have been lived longer is shortened if lived in “not so good times”. Distress and depression can make life shorter in a country infested by wars, hatred and chaos. A household where the members of the family live in hatred and confusion maybe plagued by cardiovascular diseases. Proverbs 17:22:

“A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.”

Health is necessary for a good quality life. Health deteriorates in a chaotic environment. Pollutions and toxins can destroy health and eventually life itself. But there is something to ponder: the owner of life can alter the effects brought to life by nature, time and the environment. This was displayed by the ministry of Jesus, the Captain of life. Acts 3:15 (RSV):

“and killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses.”

He gave sight to someone born blind. John 9:1-7:

And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth. And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind, Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him. I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world. When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,

And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.”

He made the lame walk. Matthew 9:2, 6-7:

“And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee. But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. And he arose, and departed to his house. But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house. And he arose, and departed to his house.”

…and resurrected a decomposing cadaver of Lazarus. John 11:39-44:

“Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.”

Truly human life is anchored on the power of God. God, the Creator, has the final say about it. Hebrews 9:27; Deuteronomy 32:39; Ecclesiastes 8:8:

And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:”

“ See now that I, even I, am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.”

“There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.”

All lives emanate from Him. John 10:17-18:

Therefore doth my Father love me, because I lay down my life, that I might take it again. No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This commandment have I received of my Father.”

Thus, a logical thing follows: a life must be lived within His will. Philippians.1:27 (RSV):

“Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you stand firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel,”

…must be spent for Him, Acts 20:24 (ASV):

“But I hold not my life of any account as dear unto myself, so that I may accomplish my course, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God.”

…and must be ended by Him and for His glory, Romans 14:8:

“For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.”

A logical question follows: Aside from God, is there anybody who has the right to take life from a human person? The logical answer is: “Thou shall not kill”. Killers and murderers under any circumstance are not of God. John 8:44:

“Ye 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.”

There is no commandment that will justify euthanasia. The commandment, thou shall not kill, did not say “thou shall not kill a healthy person”. Mercy killing, as they say, is erroneous. Who is more merciful than God himself? Psalms 103:8:

“The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy.”

If a person lives a single day, week or month, it means that God wants him to live that long or that short. Another logical question follows: How about those who kill without mercy? The logical answer is: They will be dealt with, without mercy. Hebrews 10:28-29; James 2:13:

“He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace”

“For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath showed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.”

It is prudent and wise to help stop killings among humanity. If anybody feels like killing anybody, take it from yourself. I advice you to get a needle, disinfect it, and puncture a hole on your flesh. If your brain is telling you that it is painful and is hurting, then you will realize the pain of a stabbed wound, a bullet wound or the multiple wounds that can be inflicted by a bomb.

Our own life is not ours as we owe it from God, the Creator. And we must not take it by ourselves. Learning to love ourselves is learning to love the life of others. If you love your mommy, your daddy, your brother or your sister, you will not kill them. The victims of those that are committing murders and mass killings may be a mom or a dad, a brother or a sister loved by their relatives the same way these murderers love their own. So take my advice friend, “love your neighbor as yourself” this is the royal law James 2:8:

If ye fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself, ye do well:”

It is not yet late for anybody who does not know this law. Let us follow this law and we will be a better society of civilized humans!

  1. Wonderful post. Taking one’s life, much more of others is really painful to imagine, much so to commit. Bro. Soriano’s advice is really priceless.

    And being the leading authority in this, I hope to read more of these intelligent and sensible writings spread across the web and be used in Values Education lessons from elementary to college levels. because I worry more and more just seeing how the new generation are growing in a very dysfunctional society.

    It is really hard to find a better explanation how Bro. Eli learned all these – but from the look of it – I am very much convinced that God is with him and he is that perfect gift from the Almighty for humanity.

    Once again, I really appreciate this post, it is really worth sharing to my friends, relatives and colleagues. Congratulations to Bro. Eli for winning the Most Educational Person to Follow from this year.

  2. Human life is the highest gift God has given us. And then salvation, towards eternity. At the hindsight, I am so lucky, that I was the one procreated by my father and mother, in the same manner I told my son Martin, and daughter Melissa. My first pregnancy was not successful. And then came Martin. My main responsibility to my offspring is to sustain their lives as long as I can and bring them to salvation. My life inside the Church, helps me in this vision of mine. With God’s help, I can give them the best life has to offer here and in the life after.

    Thanks be to God.

  3. Great blog! I hope it may open the heart of those people who feel like killing, hurting and persecuting others. Let us do good (with God’s help) while having life and strength. May God bless Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel in all things, any time, any where!

  4. Understanding the meaning and significance of life seems easy if you have somebody like Brother Eli explaining to you the essence of our existence. He has made the “complicated” “simple” to understand. For those who until now have not the understanding, start reading all the blogs and begin following Brother Eli on twitter @broelisoriano.
    Thanks be to God for a preacher like Brother Eli who have not only taught us the meaning of life but have given his life as well for the benefit and salvation of our souls. Glory be to the Father forever!

  5. Modern science has up until now NOT determined the ultimate cause why life exist. Some scientists even constructed an ARTIFICIAL cell in their hope to unlock the PHYSICAL mystery of life but to their utter dismay and hopeless frustration, THEY ALL FAILED TO SCIENTIFICALLY DOCUMENT LIFE’S ULTIMATE CAUSE ( Human Science may have a long way to go or may just be hopelessly wandering around the bush and that is one of the reason why I find the ATHEIST philosophy ILLOGICALLY ABSURD and UTTERLY IDIOTIC! HOW CAN THESE ATHEISTS EXPLAIN LIFE WHEN THEIR “SCIENCE” CANNOT EXPLAIN IT??? IF THEIR SCIENCE CANNOT EXPLAIN IT WHY DO THEY STILL BELIEVE THAT GOD DOES NOT EXIST WHEN IN FACT THEY COULD NOT EVEN EXPLAIN THE ORIGIN OF THEIR OWN LIFE AS EVIDENCED BY THE LIMITATIONS OF THEIR SCIENCE AS I HAVE PROVEN HERE??? Atheism really is a fool man’s ideology

  6. i just want to thank bro. eli soriano for his wisdom and for giving his whole life to teach the word of our God. i wish him all the best and may God give him more power to educate more people on how to follow God kingdom. God bless.

  7. amazingly explained…. very precise… straight to the point…. very genuine and striking to the heart and above all, its no nonsense but with concrete basis. Whatelse? Whhhooooyaaahh!!!

  8. I hope and pray that Bro. Eli can speak to all leaders of the world so that they will realize the importance of life thus ending the war between countries resulting in many killings of innocent lives. President Obama of USA can learn good things from Bro. Eli, the only sensible preacher of our times.

  9. “Our own life is not ours as we owe it from God, the Creator. And we must not take it by ourselves. Learning to love ourselves is learning to love the life of others.” – It’s really good to have a preacher who provides us noteworthy information about LIFE. Thanks be to God for the only sensible preacher in our time! More power to you Bro. Eli!

  10. To God Be The Glory! Life on earth is worth living for if all men know the law of life as there was no other being on earth who had existed or is still existing who said “I am the way, the truth and the life” but CHRIST JESUS.

  11. 1John 3:16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.

  12. i don’t know what to say. so briefly and concisely told, and is really written without much words, but it opened a very broad thought and understanding in my mind as if it couldn’t contain. i don’t know how to say it but it’s just like i’m amazed and enlightened at the same time reading your writings. more power.

  13. There is knowledge and wisdom in every word! very clear explanation coming from Bro Eli you are truly a prophet from God! Thanks be to God!

  14. Another educational piece from the bible and from the preacher who preaches sensibly and truthfully. Thanks be to God for giving you to us, Bro Eli. The world needs you!

  15. Its is clear, It really is…human’s right is always to do what is right… to intentionally kill one’s life of whatever reason has never been and will never be, in any circumstances, man’s duty or any man’s right…we human, let’s keep our hand do its wonderful purpose…Thanks be to God for letting bro.Eli do this… To GOD be the glory!!!

  16. Life is short and if I could have one wish… I pray that everyone would be able to know and listen to Bro Eli’s Biblical teaching… Imagine what a wonderful world it can be… Life that is worth living to know God’s lovingkindness, judgment and righteousness through great leaders in our time..Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel.. =)

  17. Its just so sad to admit that people gone so bad. They killed innocent people just liked that…. If only people will listen and follown BRO ELI’s advice and teachings from GOD, i know there’s still hope for this people. May GOD enlighten the mind of those mislead people.
    With all these things happenning around us, I can proudly say THANKS TO GOD for i have learned thru BRO ELI.

  18. Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel we hope and we always pray that God will always be both of you always… Because in this world we cant see a [reacher like both of you, that always think about the sake of others than your selfs and your family and love ones…

    If God willing we will always do our very best to support you and to show how much we appreciate the things that you’ve always done to us to the power and will of God…

    To God be the glory forever. May God will always be with both of you and we always Love u and our loyalty and support will always be both of you forever in God’s will…

    Thanks Be to God and God bless always…

  19. hello bro.eli..It’s so amazing for me-already a small member of the true church of God for 9 years now- to be expressing again my gratefulness to our almighty God of your Godwilled preacherdom as the only sincere preacher of this despensation, if not only the most sensible- as confessed by our beloved brethren today..and also i want to thank the God of Abraham which is also your sole God which you have devoted your incomparable integrity as a predistinated leader to us-‘last days’ Christians, your ‘whole’ and preaching ‘your Bible’ and in serving the ‘Father’..Godspeed ‘bro.Eli’ is already unfolding- your heartfelt Bible-based convictions upon preaching the true Gospel of our saviour Jesus Christ throughout the world,..and leading ‘us’..Last saturday(january 9, 2010)i’ve felt you’re quipped and mentionly expressed”homesickness”.. with your glossy eyes- i’ve felt your faithful condensed presence and love for us..

  20. is exhilirating since it felt not long ago when I was still a non-member and phoned-in to your radio program and asking what i believe the most basic question of all from a shy youth like me from the seemlike countless questions you have answered..Ingkong, i apologize having spent this space improperly to expressed all of this..just want to express to the world in this modern way, all by this very hi-tech means today- my heartfelt gratefulness from a formerly selfish and petty sin driven youth like me,- all your wonderful teachings, your labor of love,your selfless physical labor itself that you have selflessly shown us with uncomparable faithfulness- above all people, of all time?…from a youth’s predicament..I thank God for a ‘bro.Eli’! :’>

  21. This is another good article written by God’s preacher, Bro. Eli Soriano!

    I like the way he rationalized this statement. “If anybody feels like killing anybody, take it from yourself. I advice you to get a needle, disinfect it, and puncture a hole on your flesh. If your brain is telling you that it is painful and is hurting, then you will realize the pain of a stabbed wound, a bullet wound or the multiple wounds that can be inflicted by a bomb.”

    If only the suspects of the mass murder in Maguindanao have done this to themselves, perhaps they will hesitate to do such an evil deed. I hope that the family of the victims will receive justice. This criminal act should not even be done in a predominantly Christian country as we claim it.

    Only God can take a life of a person!

  22. For almost 4 years in studying nursing, this is the very first time that i ever understand the concept of euthanasia as an erroneous act in the field of medicine. Though we have studied this for h0w many weeks just to win the debate am0ng our class, the lessons i’ve learned NOW after reading bro.Eli’s blog is much much more of a wisdom compared to what i’ve learned in school. I thank God for letting me know his truth and wisdom through bro.ELI and bro.DANIEL. TO GOD BE THE GLORY.

    From this time on, i’m very much excited and looking forward to read more of bro.ELI’s blogs specially in relati0n to the field of medicine. Thanks be to God:-)

  23. Now I know how precious life is. We don’t have the power to take our lives but it is only God who can take it. Thank God, for using Bro. Eli to be the instrument in spreading his word. He is really the only sensible preacher of our time. To God be the Glory!


  25. Bro eli you are really a prophet. It truly gives an inspiration to anyone to do good. Its really amazing blog. “…to live is Christ,and to die is gain.” Glory be to GOD.

  26. truly no one has the right to take ones life.Be fair and content on Gods given grace for we breath and live because of Gods love.

  27. To GOD be the glory.thank you those people who murdered a lot of people,they are for satan side and they are happy what they did.The true Christian has this in their heart love your enemy.While the other religion has order to their member to hate and kill their enemy.They are of their father’s satan.

  28. GLORY TO GOD ALMIGHTY, MAY HIS PEACE AND LOVE BE ALWAYS WITH Bro. Eli, Bro Daniel, the KNP’s, TP’s, workers, brethrens in the MCGI, and fellow bloggers. Kudos to you Bro Eli for another sensible topic. The fact that you dont run out of revealing topics is a proof that GOD is using you to spread HIS TRUTH.

    GOD is the ultimate source of life and therefore HE is the final authority that can take it back. It is the law of life that if we help others enjoy a good Christian life, we will in turn be rewarded with a good life, not only here on earth, but in the promised eternal life.

    Fellow bloggers, go on surfing in this web site, and you might have the fortune of enjoying a peaceful life like ours, very much differrent from our former miserable, sinful life in the catholic church, imposed upon us by the Spanish colonizers, criticized by no less than our national hero Dr. Jose P. Rizal.

    Thank you so much Bro Eli, Bro Daniel for spreading GOD’s TRUTH, even under pain of being continuously maligned, threatened with death, ‘ with manufactured’ cases, and endless form of persecutions. The financial burden and other difficulties are so great, but with GOD’s help, our small and humble share and those of our family and friends we will convince, others might just be enlightened to help. We are continuously praying for you Bro. Eli.

  29. God is just and merciful, though we sometime sinned HE pardoned us. He is simply saying that we ought to follow His commandments and abide to His law. But there are wicked people who do monstrous things like what they did in Maguindanao or perhaps in other places. I just hope that someday these evil things will cease to exist. I thank GOD for His loving kindness for showing us the way on how to love others, so that peace may reign in our hearts.

  30. One of the best articles I’ve read in my entire life!!!
    especially the part when you will puncture a disinfected needle for whosoever wants to kill…
    Try it for yourself first….How will it feel…
    But of course, evil people will not experience that because they have no conscience…
    These kind of silly people also has money…power…and body guards….
    Certainly they can twist the law

    Also, I like the euthanasia part…You have no right to kill a person who is fighting to survive,,, selfish people do not want to spend for their families!

    I love this kind of LAW!!! Very legible to grasp!

    It is no regret that whenever I am down,,,I will just go to Bro. Eli’s site..
    and my day will be fulfilled 😀

    Thanks be unto God!

  31. I learned so much from this blog.

    Our life is of God’s property, that means we just borrowed it from him. We have to love life and not kill it.
    “Love your neighbors as you love yourself” as they say.

    I give thanks to GOD because of this. Thanks be to GOD because there’s a person like Bro. Eli.

    -Alain Christopher Concon “(^;^)”

  32. The Only Preacher whos so Wise enough to answer all the Books of Life int terms of the Law…and of course on its beginning of Gods Creations.BIBLICALLY and SCIENTIFICALLY he can answer questions about Life,a SMARTER ANSWERS YOU CAN NEVER HEARD OR READ.THANKS BE TO GOD!

  33. I take this opportunity to share to us homo sapiens especially for us who cannot find the meaning for our existence in this lifetime! UEREKA! As expounded by Bro. Eli not even this awesome universe is of value in our Creator’s eyes compared to a single human being who recognizes Him as His Creator! Follow Bro. Eli in any of his broadcasts and know about this Creator and why He created us as revealed in the only best seller book of all times.

  34. it’s a similar teaching…i learned from Bro. Eli in time past which made me value the existence of the littleiest, smelliest, annoyingiest, most in pain human beings on the street. It’s a wisdom to treat them that way … they are God’s creation too. Loving them as myself may be hard but it can be done. Anyhow it is the law of life, the law of God.

  35. if i had a another chance to talk to somebody with.. i chosse bro.eli why?? because he knows everythng you want to know about words of God almigthy and he can explain it and answer all the question biblical basis.. thanks God for someone like bro eli soriano..


  36. Truly God Sets us rules of living to follow sometimes we ignore this because oftentimes we humans only believe when we see the fact physically! It is our nature that we after of a physical representation of what the word says!!!that is why faith is introduced by Christ to teach us that there are things that exist which the human eye cannot see!!

  37. People, stop what you are doing and listen to this man. Listen to what he has to say. Because you can miss what ever you are doing right now for the world, but not what this man has to say. It is time to open our eyes, ears, minds, and most importantly our hearts. Let him help you, find the truth and find Love in God’s words.

  38. Romans 12:19-21

    19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”[a] says the Lord. 20 On the contrary:

    “If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
    if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.
    In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”[b]

    21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
