My Beloved Preacher

Alone in this world,
beckoned by transgressions;
countless miseries
darted in as I journey.

All I had was loneliness
before you showed up;
charismatic, brilliant, and poise
dignified preacher of great stature.

Amazing things happened
brought upon by your teachings;
confusions of mine gone,
disappeared in darkness.

Anticipation grew,
begun a grandeur faith;
Christ Jesus leads me now
death’s power has been dispelled.


Various churches exist and operate around the world, pretending to oblige to the great commission of the Lord–that is to “teach every nation all His commandments, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost” (Mat. 22:18).

Proclaiming different tenets and doctrines, these churches alienate innocent minds from the truth of the gospel. They teach their members polluted lessons; lessons that destroy humanity rather than save souls. Pity belongs to those who have been misguided and blinded by these beguilers; but prayers offer more relief.

Prayer is a very powerful tool to ease the sufferings of people who are enthralled by the power of darkness and predominance of sin; but equally important is the preaching of the pure gospel of salvation. When these two great components combine, they become an irrefutable source of enlightenment and absolution–a sure ticket to God’s heavenly kingdom, if obtained and followed without reservation.

There are many reasons why we should offer sacrifice of thanksgiving to God. Mine is actually countless. I could never imagine existing without God in my life. He gives me the strength I need each day to carry on my tasks for the ministry and my family.

THE ACTS 17:28
For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

No matter how difficult life is, God does not give up on me so why should I give up and quit serving Him. Sure, troubles and sufferings, even persecutions abound if you are truly a Christian and serving God the right way. But are these things really enough to make

you quit in your service to the Lord? No, because we are made strong by these trials. We can do it if we renew our faith and trust in the Lord and do His will.

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.

Let’s continue to serve God and thank Him continually. Life everlasting and eternal joy await us once we’re done with the pain and sufferings of this world.

Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

To God be the glory forever!

The Real Man of God

Many religious groups voice out that their leaders are messengers of God, like the Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ) of Manalo and the Mormons of Joseph Smith, among others. Well, if these people are courageous enough to make such unbelievable claim, then we should be more vocal in pronouncing that our leader, Brother Eli Soriano, is the real man or messenger of God. Why? Because he speaks of God’s truth and tenets, and not his own. He teaches the members of Church of God International the entirety of God’s laws and admonishes all to practice the appropriate Christian tenets in our present dispensation (Mat. 28:19-20).

As I browse the Internet looking for web sites, particularly blogs, that will inspire me to study more about God and His words, I found one which I consider to be the most sensible out there – the blog of Brother Eli Soriano. See for yourself and be the judge. The articles he writes are all biblically and scientifically based. Any Bible-believing reader will definitely be edified upon perusing Brother Eli’s astute write ups. Thanks be to God for Brother Eli Soriano – the most sensible Preacher in our epoch.
