Reminiscing the Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path)
(I remember now, the number on the screen 410- 0256 – that was the number I called, it turned out to be the Locale of Munoz, when I was at the edge of my troubled life. They directed me to the number of our Locale in Pacita, San Pedro Laguna.)
I was at the height of my career when I came to know the Ang Dating Daan. I did not know the man speaking. I was not even listening to him. What I could not forget was the green curtain moving behind him. To the one side, was a lone plastic decorative plant. (I thought so)
Each time I chance to click on the channel, I immediately turned it off. I did not like the setting. As a catholic, used to the grandeur of the catholic churches, I found the setting too cheap for my taste.
Inside the Church years later, I have learned how they, (Brother Daniel, Sis Luz and of course Brother Eli), managed to broadcast the Word of God. It was all from basic. It was all from scratch. While they were relating the story of their crude broadcasting, I was crying.
How lucky we are that we come to know the Church with more convenience. We don’t have to walk miles and miles to the barrios to accompany Brother Eli to a debate or to the bible expositions. We don’t have to encounter the hatred of the Iglesia ni Cristo along our path and endanger our lives. We don’t have to hear the insults of some enemies in the Faith when they say ” Pang Greater Pampanga Lang Kayo”.
As it is written:
Daniel 12:4 (King James Version)
4But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
To be a part of this milestone in the history of mankind is something to ponder on.
Every time we congregate, there is a new lesson to be learned. Lessons that are all based in the bible. I particularly like the books written by Saint Paul. This is not to say, I don’t like the books written by the other apostles. (I have written blogs to this effect)
By listening to Brother Eli, the Word of God is slowly penetrating in my mind. I never liked to read the bible while I was still a catholic for I find there were too many verses to read and too hard to understand.
Inside the Church – The Members – Church of God International – the bible is so simple to understand yet too beautiful that you want to own it. I felt something opened in my mind and I wanted to grasp all of it.
As it is written:
Daniel 12:9-10 (King James Version)
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.
Yes, indeed, we are in the end times.
Luke 21:13-15 (King James Version)
13And it shall turn to you for a testimony.
14Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:
15For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
THANKS BE TO GOD FOR HIS UNSPEAKABLE GIFT!
