(Church Of Christ)?

Many non-members of the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church Of Christ) thought that the founder of this Church was Brother Felix Y. Manalo. However, this information came not from this Church, nor from the members of this Church. The Iglesia Ni Cristo never taught that Brother Felix Y. Manalo is the founder of this  Church.

The detractors of the Iglesia Ni Cristo are those who say that this Church was founded by Brother Felix Y. Manalo. We often heard the critics of the Iglesia ni Cristo call this Church as “Iglesia ni Manalo” (“Church of Manalo”) or “Iglesia nI Cristo ni Manalo” (“Church of Christ of Manalo”). These are derogatory remarks they made against the Iglesia Ni Cristo.

Ask members of this Church if who is the founder of the Iglesia ni Cristo (Church of Christ), and all will surely answer, “The Lord Jesus Christ is the true founder of this Church and not Brother Felix Y. Manalo.”

This post a problem to others. They could not accept that the Lord Jesus Christ is the true founder of this Church because the Iglesia Ni Cristo emerged only in 1914, in the Philippines. These people often ask, “Did the Lord Jesus Christ came down to the Philippines in 1914 to established the Iglesia ni Cristo?”

The truth is, the Iglesia Ni Cristo that emerged in the Philippines in 1914 was established by THE LORD JESUS Christ by means of prophecy.

Brother Felix Y. Manalo Did Not Established the Iglesia Ni Cristo

Brother Felix Y. Manalo Did Not Established, But the One Who Preached The Iglesia Ni Cristo In The Philippines



Brother Felix Y. Manalo


The prophecy of the Lord Jesus Christ in John 10:16 refers to the re-establishment of His Church. He promised the re-emergence of the Church of Christ because the first century Church of Christ was apostatized. The Lord Jesus Christ Himself forewarned that many will fall away because many false prophets will rise and lead many astray:

“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation, and put you to death; and you will be hated by all nations for my name's sake. And then many will fall away, and betray one another, and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. Matthew 24:9-11 RSV

Although apostasy take place in the first century Church of Christ, however, the Lord Jesus also prophesied that He has “other sheep” not of the fold or the first century Church of Christ, but He will bring them also and they will hear their voice and He will form them as “one flock” (referring to the re-emergence of the Church of Christ). However, the Lord Jesus Christ also said that there will be “one shepherd.”

Brother Felix Y. Manalo God's Last Messenger and His Message



Brother Felix Y. Manalo:
God Last Messenger and His Message


 
  
The emergence of the Iglesia Ni Cristo in the Philippines fulfills the prophecies of God written in the Bible concerning His sons and daughters whom He will call from the Far East in these last days (cf. Isaiah 43:5-6 and Moffatt; 41:9-15; 46:11-13; Acts 2:39; John 10:16; Revelation 7:2-3). These biblical prophecies have also pointed to a servant of God whom He will send to lead God’s chosen people from the ends of the earth:

“Thou whom I have taken from the ends of the earth, and called thee from the chief men thereof, and said unto thee, Thou art my servant; I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away. Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.” (Isaiah 41:9-10 KJV, enphasis mine)

God said to His “servant” whom He “have taken from the ends of the earth” that “I have chosen thee, and not cast thee away.” Another biblical prophecy points out that God’s messenger from the ends of the earth will came from “a far country” in the East, or the Far East:

“Calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it. Hearken unto me, ye stouthearted, that are far from righteousness: I bring near my righteousness; it shall not be far off, and my salvation shall not tarry: and I will place salvation in Zion for Israel my glory.” (Isaiah 46:11-13 KJV)
