The Members of the Church of God International (MCGI) celebrated the second quarter of International Thanksgiving on July 29- July 31, 2016. Brethrens from different places of the globe, from the East to the West, gave thanks to the Lord in this 3 day sacrifice of thanksgiving for all His kindness and mercy. Singing praises, dancing, and loud cheers could be heard from Apalit, Pampanga where the event was hosted to different monitoring sites across the world.
The religious group is more known as Ang Dating Daan (The Old Path) which is the name of the T.V. program hosted by Bro. Eli Soriano where different questions regarding faith are answered in detail based on the verses in the Bible. MCGI is a group that is incomparatively always thankful to God. Thanksgiving is held every week, while the 3 day International Thanksgivng is held quarterly. Profound topics of faith never heard from different religious organizations are taught to the brethren, resulting for more reasons to thank God for the rare wisdom heard.
Brother Eli taught that there are several reasons to thank God.
1 Thessalonians 5:18 (KJV)
In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
In addition, being given the opportunity or the life to give the Lord thanks is another reason to be thankful.
The hastag #NationOfGodMCGI also took the top spot in Twitter’s top trending hashtags.
Meanwhile, a defender of another religious group also used MCGI’s hashtags #NationOfGodMCGI and #RejoiceNationOfGodMCGI to post his own interest, attacking the church.
Still, nothing compares to the God-given wisdom fed to the Church of God.
Luke 21: 15
For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.
I am also personally thankful to God for all the unexpected blessings in my life such as getting the job I’m not even sure why I got accepted despite my disadvantage compared to other applicants. It is truly a blessing and a miracle of God.
I also want to thank Him for letting my beloved friend attend this day of thanksgiving with us. I really do pray to God that He always be with her and guide her in everything. I thank God for the opportunity to bring her. May God bless my friend always.
Thank you for reading!
To God be all the glory and honor!
