How Felix Manalo ordained himself by interpreting biblical prophecy

Another good research. But how reliable is “google”? You mentioned that Catholic Catechism quoted biblical verses. Can you give me the exact verses that we should worship idols, graven images and statues? That Christ is God in the bible? There’s Trinity in the Bible?

Artsee,

The Trinity is a truth deduced from the Bible and from the testimony of those who heard the apostles:

Then Jesus approached and said to them, “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me.19 h Go, therefore,* and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the holy Spirit,20 i teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.* And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.” (Mt 28:18-20)

The ‘truth’ that Felix Manalo’s INC is foretold in the Bible is a ‘truth’ deduced by Manalo. So if you ask me to search for the word “Trinity” in the Bible, I shall also ask you to search for “Felix Manalo” in the Bible. Remember the words of Christ: “I came in the name of my Father, but you do not accept me; yet if another comes in his own name, you will accept him.” Unlike Christ, Felix Manalo came in his own name for no one sent him except his deluded self, and he twisted the Scriptures in order that they prophesy his coming, leading many in INC astray.

Read it from ReadMe himself:

WHO ORDAINED BRO. FELIX MANALO?

Straight from the pasugo, here it is:

Ordination is the investiture of ministerial or sacerdotal function through the laying on of hands. The first ordination mentioned in the bible was when Moses laid his hands on Joshua to be his successor.

Moses, however, had no need of anyone to ordain him because his commissioning was mandated by God himself—this is also why Bro. Felix Manalo had no need to be ordained. No man has the right to ordain another unless he is sent by God to preach his words(Rom.10:15). Bro. Felix Manalo was directly appointed by God through the prophecies recorded in the bible fulfilled in him.

Through prophecy, God commissioned his chosen servant from the “ends of the earth” refers to the period of when Judgment day is near signified by the outbreak of the First World War on July 27,1914. (Mt. 24:3,33,6-8). God chose Bro. Felix Manalo to proclaim his righteousness which is the gospel of salvation (Rom. 1:16-17). Concomitant with this right to preach was the authority for him to ordain would-be ministers.

From Pasugo September 1999

This is what the verse in Mt 24:4 says: “See that no one deceives you.5 For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and they will deceive many.6 You will hear of wars 5 and reports of wars; see that you are not alarmed, for these things must happen, but it will not yet be the end.7

Does that verse refer to Felix Manalo? Did he come in the name of Christ, saying he is the messiah, and in doing so deceived many?

No one is ordained from mere prophecy alone. Moses was sent directly by God from the burning bush (Ex 3:10). David was ordained king by Samuel pouring oil on his head (1 Sam 16:13). Jesus was also baptized by John (Mk 1:9; Lk 4:18). No one directly ordained Manalo–as INC claims. Is Manalo greater than Moses, David, and Jesus?

    Actually, Felix Manalo was ordained on December 1918 at Cine Gloria. He was ordained by various protestant ministers who after this event he would later call agents of the devil. I quote from their invitation:

    “Mapitagan naming inaanyayahan ang inyong kamahalan sa gaganaping pagdiriwang ukol sa PAGPAPASALAMAT sanhi sa ika LIMANG TAONG BUHAY ng “IGLESIA NI KRISTO” sa Pilipinas at PAGPAPATONG NG KAMAY sa kapatid na Felix Manalo sa tungkuling pagka Pastor at Tagapamahala ng Iglesia. Ito ay idaraos sa Sine “Gloria” blg. 1649 daang Sande, Tundo (Maynila) sa ika 25 ng Disyembre ng taong ito sa ganap na ika walo ng umaga (8:00 am) ng nasabing araw…

    Lubos na gumagalang,
    Justino Casanova, Teodoro Santiago, Federico Inocencio”

    “Ang pagpapatong ng kamay sa kapatid na Felix Manalo na tutungkulin ng mga Obispo at pastor ng mga iba’t ibang Iglesiang natatatag sa kapuluan , na ang mga ito’y ang mga kagalanggalang na Alejandro Reyes, Victoriano Mariano, Gil Domingo, Guillermo Zarco, Nicholas Fajardo, Emiliano Quijano, at Roque Bautista”

    “Bendisyon Apostolika….Rev Guillermo Zarco”

    which bring us into these questions:
    1. If Felix Manalo teaches that Protestant Pastors are agaents of the devil, then the ordination he received from them came from who?
    2. If such is the case, then Felix Manalo is also an agent of the…
    3. According to the interpretation of the INC, this is not ordination. The question is what does the bible teaches regarding “pagpapatong ng kamay para sa tungkulin”? Also, if such is the case, why did Felix Manalo receive apostolic blessing from the agents of Satan? What kind of blessing did he receive?
    4. Basing on the invitation, it stated that the INC was also celebrating their FIVE “5” years of existence in 1918. Thus, 1918 – 5 = 1914????? Just do the math.

    Another crazy stuff from people who drive themselves away from the right path. Fellow sons of Adam, think deeply.
