I grew up believing that there is GOD Almighty who created the heaven and the earth. I also believe in Jesus Christ as well as the existence of the Holy Spirit and angels.
Even though many people are skeptical about their existence, even though that I have never seen them yet with my eyes, I know deep inside my heart that they really exist. As a Christian, the basis of what I believe in is written on the Holy Scriptures.
There are many false preachers and leaders that spring up rapidly all over the place. Currently, a lot of religious hoax and lies can be read, seen and heard from the people who appointed themselves as pastors, leaders and evangelists. Luckily, there are real leaders and preachers who are really sent by GOD to the world. The Bible says about Paul and Timothy being the ministers of true Church of GOD.
In the our dispensation, there is Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon who are truly the men sent by GOD to administer the members of the Church of GOD International. Through the leadership of Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon, there are also people who help them to spread the words of GOD for it to be known to many people in many places across the globe.
In the false religions, they are called pastors, priest, etc. but in the true Church of GODthey are called workers. Inside the true Church of GODthey are simply addressed as brothers and sisters.
Through the leadership of Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon, they are also duty bound to look after the welfare of the members of theChurchofGOD. Some of them are professionals, some of them have attained high degree in academics and some of them do not have any educational achievements. But regardless of their status, with GOD’s help they work to achieve their goals and to fulfill their noble duties that are given to them in accordance to GOD’s will.
Admittedly, sometimes some of them fall short on the expectations and they have shortcomings, sometimes they commit mistakes. However, they still deserve to be loved, respected, understood and treated accordingly. Bro. Eli taught us how they should be treated in accordance to the Bible. In 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13, it says;
12And we beseech you, brethren, to know them which labour among you, and are over you in the Lord, and admonish you;
13And to esteem them very highly in love for their work’s sake. And be at peace among yourselves.

I am grateful to GOD that before, HE sent Jesus Christ on earth to preach the gospel and now, Bro. Eli and Bro. Daniel in the midst of us. All glory and thanks are to GOD
