Over the past few months, I have been getting a lot of attention from my readers. I have received thousands of emails from ministers, officers, and members of the church. Some people were angry with me, cursed at me, and threatened me. Conversely, there were also many brethren who sent their support and encouragements. To those who continue to support this movement, to expose the corruption perpetuated by the Sanggunian, I truly appreciate your help. It was and is impossible for me to bring to light all the evil that the Sanggunian has committed without your assistance. Most of you risked your membership in the church and even your own lives in order to help. As a result, many have been wrongfully expelled because the Sanggunian accused you of being “going against the Church Administration.” I salute all of you for your courage.
However, please allow me to clarify and emphasize that this movement is not about me. This is about God’s glory, our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church, and upholding justice and truth. I am like a man pointing his finger to the moon to show you its beauty. You should not look at my finger but instead look at the moon. In like manner, I myself am unimportant, so please focus on the message that I am giving you. I am a lowly servant who is playing my part. Apostle Paul clarifies that each of us were given assignments but God is at the center of this process.
We each carried out our servant assignment. I planted the seed, Apollos watered the plants, but God made you grow. It’s not the one who plants or the one who waters who is at the center of this process but God, who makes things grow.
I Corinthians 3:6-8 (MSG)
Even God’s messenger in these last days, Brother Felix Y. Manalo taught us to believe the truth spoken, telling his audiences “Don’t believe Manalo, believe the Bible.” The prophecy of the prophet Isaiah was fulfilled that the messenger will exalt the law and make it honorable (Isa. 42:21 NKJV). That is the reason, although Brother Felix Y. Manalo has long been gone, we still follow the commandments of God, because just like him, we honor the law and commandments of God. Just for the same reason, we expose the corruption of the Sanggunian, because they desacralized the laws and commandments of God. That is why if there is a man to whom we should give the credit to, it is none other than Brother Felix Y. Manalo, because he is the one who taught the very foundation of our faith, which we are fighting for.
We should also remember Brother Erano G. Manalo who admonished us to be watchful and vigilant , never allow this church to go astray. In his homily on the Iglesia ni Cristo’s 75th anniversary, he instructed us not to be silent when there is corruption in the church. Hence, THE IGLESIA NI CRISTO IS SILENT NO MORE.
Although it is not about me, many are wondering who I am. In my previous blogs, I mentioned that in due time, I might reveal my true identity. In all truthfulness, I would like to introduce to you the real A.E:
A.E. is not I for the true A.E. is not a person. It is more than body, spirit, and soul of one person. It is not just a blogger or whistle blower but rather the movement itself. A.E. stands for Another Era… a new era.
As we are in the 101st year of the establishment of the Church, a new era… Another Era begins in the Iglesia ni Cristo. It is the fresh start that we need so that we may prepare the Church for our Lord Jesus Christ’s second return. Some of you may ask “But how can we, the servants of God have a fresh start?” In II Samuel 22:21 (The Message), it says the following:
God made my life complete when I placed all the pieces before him. When I cleaned up my act, he gave me a fresh start. Indeed, I’ve kept alert to God’s ways; I haven’t taken God for granted.
The Church must be cleansed and restored for us to be graced with a fresh start. As we start Another Era, it is important to restore it to its original condition. It has been corroded by corruption, lies, abuse of power, and hatred. But it is not too late. Restoration is possible, because for God nothing is impossible. Here is God’s promise to His nation as written in Isaiah 58:8 (Amplified Bible):
Then shall your light break forth like the morning, and your healing (your restoration and the power of a new life) shall spring forth speedily; your righteousness (your rightness, your justice, and your right relationship with God) shall go before you [conducting you to peace and prosperity], and the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
An idea is so powerful when its time or era has come. The time has come, my Brothers and Sisters. We are in A.E. or Another Era. The Book of Ecclesiastes says that there is time for everything:
For everything there is an appointed time,
and an appropriate time for every activity on earth:
A time to rip, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silent, and a time to speak.
Ecclesiastes 3:1, 7 (NET Bible)
We have been silent for six years, now is the time speak. We are silent no more. So we enjoin all ministers, evangelical workers, officers, and members to help in the restoration of the Church. Help us to expose the corruption. Some might be asking “Why? Why should we help?” For according to the Bible we should bring things from darkness to light as Apostle Paul stated:
11 Take no part in and have no fellowship with the fruitless deeds and enterprises of darkness, but instead [let your lives be so in contrast as to] [a]expose and reprove and convict them. 12 For it is a shame even to speak of or mention the things that [such people] practice in secret. 13 But when anything is exposed and reproved by the light, it is made visible and clear; and where everything is visible and clear there is light. 14 Therefore He says, Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall shine (make day dawn) upon you and give you light. 15 Look carefully then how you walk! Live purposefully and worthily and accurately, not as the unwise and witless, but as wise (sensible, intelligent people),6 Making the very most of the time [buying up each opportunity], because the days are evil. 17 Therefore do not be vague and thoughtless and foolish, but understanding and firmly grasping what the will of the Lord is.
(Ephesians 5:11-17 AMP)
With our Almighty God on our side, we will be able to bring the church to its glory and help make it worthy of receiving His promises. We believe that God is true to His promise that He will never forsake the Church of Christ (Isaiah 62:11-12), but we have to do our part and obey the commandments of God to cleanse the Church of any corruption and sin. If we obey God’s commandments it will be for our own good and for the good of our children (Jer. 7:23).
Welcome to A.E.
