UNITY AMIDST ADVERSITY

To all our Brothers and Sisters in the faith,

It is my fervent hope that somehow this message will shed some light to those who are confused and conflicted with the recent events that transpired and hopefully it will put a stop to all the hurtful exchanges between Brethren in the true faith.

Bro. Isaias “Jun” T. Samson Jr. (I.T.S.)

For all of those who are asking me to comment on whatever Bro. Isaias T. Samson Jr. said pertaining to or against other Ministers and the cause that we are fighting for, please allow me to say this… Whatever Bro. Jun Samson said, no matter how hurtful or demeaning, is his right and his prerogative. I may not agree with him, nor will I justify his derogatory statements with a reply, but I will fight for his right to say or express his thoughts and his principles. Because in the world of the One-With-EVM, people have lost their right to express their thoughts or to ask and demand reasonable answers for fear of persecution, oppression or even death. Bro. Jun Samson can find comfort in the fact that he is free to broadcast his opinion about us and the cause that we have been fighting for since the beginning. I can only wish him well and pray that he finds peace in all of his endeavors. For those who are wondering what this is all about, you can find videos of Bro. Jun Samson here:

Our stand regarding Bro. Isaias T. Samson’s commentary, please watch the Bible Sudy conducted by Bro. Rolando Dizon as he explains in detail the biblical basis and historical fulfillment of the scriptures:

 

And on behalf of my fellow Servant Ministers, we would like to clarify that we do not judge anyone, for no one is higher or greater than the other because in the end, we will all answer for our own actions and judgement is reserved only for God and no one else. So, let us strive to follow what is truly important, the greatest of all commandments which is to love God above anyone or anything, and to love our neighbor the way we love ourselves, and in doing so, we can start to examine ourselves to be better human beings, to be better Christians, before we can expect others to do the same.

To those who are asking me whether or not Bro. Jun Samson is going back to the church as a returnee, I honestly don’t know. Only he can answer that and only time will tell. Do not condemn him for doing what is truly in his heart. We are all called into the cause for different reasons, at different times and in different ways. There are those who were with us in the beginning but are not with us now or ‘til the end. There are those who are boldly fighting for the truth who may not have been with us in the beginning but are with us now. Please bear in mind that it is our Lord God who chooses those whom He will call and use as His instruments for His will.

OVERCOMING DIVISIVENESS

For those who are greatly conflicted and hurt upon realizing that there are Ministers who were with us from the beginning but are showing signs of divisiveness, do not be discouraged or disheartened. Unity should not be personality-based or majority-based. Perfect unity is achieved when a person chooses to follow our Lord Jesus Christ and our Lord God. Even if the majority of people start to break away and only a few remain, or even if only one soul remains faithful to God and refuses to take part in evil works, then there is still unity with God. As Christ and God are one, we are admonished by our Creator and our Lord Jesus to be one with them in holiness and in righteousness. So choose carefully to whom you would unite with. Because if any of the Defender Ministers or any of us, starts to preach a different gospel, other the ones that were taught to us from the Bible, then do not listen to us, listen to and follow what God instructs His people through the holy scriptures. Bro. Felix Y. Manalo and Bro. Eraño G. Manalo have already imparted the doctrines to us during their lifetime and this is now the time of testing of our faith. Let us use this knowledge to discern right from wrong, examine both sides, dare to question and clarify in order to understand what is true and divine, and above all, pray for guidance from our Lord God so that He may send forth the Holy Spirit to remind us of God’s will and direct us to the path that we should take. True unity is based on being in unison with whom/what you are uniting with, and not who or how many are with you. Let us stop gauging the measure of unity based on quantity or having everybody onboard because simply put, quality supersedes quantity an remember this truth, “many are called, but only few are chosen (Matthew 22:14 NKJV). You decide, which one are you?

On behalf of our fellow Defender Ministers, we would like to express our sincerest love to Bro. Jun Samson, his whole family and his companions and pray for them in whatever endeavor they embark on. We encourage everyone to stop the bickering and spiteful comments towards them or one another, they have made their stand, it’s time to make yours, otherwise, we will be no different from the One-With-EVM- fanatics who use Social Media to make shallow ramblings and incite hate and bigotry.

As for the rest of us, we will continue to take no part in evil works of darkness but expose them into the light and we will continue to encourage one another especially now that the coming of the Lord is drawing nearer. We will tirelessly seek out those whom God has chosen to stand up for His righteousness, to tend to their spiritual needs, to edify them and strengthen them as our Lord God continues to put that desire in their hearts to worship Him forever. Then no one and nothing can stop us from giving praises and worship to our Lord God and our Lord Jesus Christ.

“They will be my people, and I will be their God.   And I will give them one heart and one purpose: to worship me forever, for their own good and for the good of all their descendants. And I will make an everlasting covenant with them: I will never stop doing good for them. I will put a desire in their hearts to worship me, and they will never leave me. I will find joy doing good for them and will faithfully and wholeheartedly replant them in this land.” ~ Jeremiah 32:38-41 (NLT)

SILENCE OF THE LAMBS

Regarding those who are still inside the INC who call themselves Silent Defenders, many are asking us whether they should remain inside or step out voluntarily. Our stand is this, we encourage everyone to obey what is commanded by God, written in the holy scriptures, which is stated in Ephesians 5:11 (NKJV):

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.”

We can state as many justifications as we can as to why we would rather keep “silent” and remain in the church, but the bottom line is this… remaining inside the Church of Christ, headed by a corrupted administration, that promotes and practices unfruitful works of darkness is in fact equivalent to having fellowship with them which is contradictory to what the Bible instructs. What else does Apostle Paul admonish in this verse? To expose those who are doing the acts of unfruitful works of darkness. And if in doing so, you are persecuted or unjustly expelled, then, have NO FEAR. Because once your fear of persecution/expulsion is greater than your fear of God, then you are simply telling our Lord God that He is an incapable God. It is like believing that our Lord God is powerless in protecting you and your family who chose to follow Him. It is tantamount to thinking that you cannot fully entrust yourself to God for fear that EVM and Administration are more powerful than Him. Lest we forget, it is only God who has the power to give or take away our salvation- not EVM, not the Sanggunian Ministers, nor the District Ministers, neither anyone,  but ONLY GOD. So if you find yourself being ordered to go to your District Minister only to be interrogated, and asked to pledge your loyalty to EVM, you then have the option to do as you are told and lie your way out of being expelled, OR, you can refuse to go, and declare your solemn loyalty to God instead. If you don’t get expelled after making a stand on the side of God, then it is God’s will that you remain inside the Church for whatever God intends for you to fulfill. But if you do get expelled for refusing to have fellowship with the current idolatrous administration, then this only proves that you are truly chosen by God.

“For you will be expelled from the synagogues, and the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God.” ~ John 16:2 (NLT)

Can you imagine if everyone remained “silent”? What if Bro. Eraño G. Manalo’s family remained “silent”? What if the pioneer Defenders remained “silent”? What if everyone feared persecution and expulsion so much that they chose to comfortably remain inside the church? Imagine a world when nobody stood up and spoke up against the anomalies inside the church. What do you think would have happened?

COMPLETE APOSTASY

But standing up for what is right is a personal choice, we can not force anyone to do this, only you can decide on that for yourself. It is a divine calling from God. But please don’t think for one second that standing up for the truth means recklessly rampaging towards the INC Central Office gates like a wide-eyed lunatic with guns blazing. Absolutely not. Standing up on the side of God means being calculated, effective and smart about it. Do the right thing and God will do the rest. Do not subscribe to the philosophy that you will not do anything, just have faith, silently wait and God will do everything, because “faith without good works is dead” ~ (James 2:26). Otherwise, you will end up being part of those who are, in the sight of God, have truly turned away.

Is the Church of Christ now apostatized?

The Church of Christ will not be completely apostatized as stated and promised by God for as long as there are those who will stand up and refuse to keep silent while others are being led astray. So, when the Church headed by Eduardo V. Manalo started to preach a different doctrine and became idolatrous in the sight of our Lord God, EVM, along with everyone who became one with him and the organization he leads, became an institution who lost their right to be called members of the Church of Christ. No matter what earthly documents they hold on to prove their membership, an institution which claims to be headed by Christ cannot be His body if it no longer follows the teachings of its head. If it follows the commandments of mere men, then it is no longer the true Church of Christ. On the Day of Judgement, it will be our actions that will be examined by our Almighty God and not the paper we hold in our hand, or our membership to an institution of man, neither the worldly accomplishments nor the miracles that we may have done.  Bro. Eraño G. Manalo was divinely inspired when he said that apostasy will loom but it will not succeed. Why…? Because there will be those who will come out victorious, a very small remnant who will continue to carry the torch of light and rise up to be the true disciples or members of the Church of Christ. These are the very few survivors who will remain true to the teachings, in faith and in deed as stated in Isaiah 1:7-9 and because of them, the Church of Christ will not be apostatized and destroyed like Sodom and Gomorrah.

Your country is desolate, Your cities are burned with fire; Strangers devour your land in your presence; And it is desolate, as overthrown by strangers.  So the daughter of Zion is left as a booth in a vineyard, As a hut in a garden of cucumbers, As a besieged city.  Unless the Lord of hosts Had left to us a very small remnantWe would have become like Sodom, We would have been made like Gomorrah.”  ~ Isaiah 1:7-9 (NKJV)

“… If the Lord of hosts had not left us a few survivors, ...” ~ (English Standard Version)

So have faith, my dear Brothers and Sisters, renew your strength and soldier on for we are the true members of the Church of Christ, recognized by our Almighty God and our Lord Jesus. We will continue to serve God and brethren under our care, with fervent love, faith, and hope until the end.

“Unlike you, I don’t have power or money, but what I do have is a very particular set of skills, skills I have acquired over a very long career.  Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.  If you tell the truth now, that’ll be the end of it.  I will not look for you, I will not pursue you.  But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will expose you.” – A.E.
