Did Isaiah have in mind the “Las Islas Filipinas” when he prophesied this verse during his time in 8th cent. Any intelligent reader would realize that what he said is just. Because this is just his explanation without any basis at all.Did Eli Soriano showed us any Biblical evidence to back up his claim that the “east” and the “islands of the sea” in Isaiah is referring to the Philippines? That’s why I wonder how his followers would always introduce him as the “most sensible preacher” while here he is talking non-sense at all. Well, if you are unaware yet, this is the right time to know where he this interpretation.
For example, in King James Version, a translation I believed Eli Soriano use most of the time in his Bible expositions, it uses “fires” rather than “east”: “Wherefore glorify ye the LORD in the fires, even the name of the LORD God of Israel in the isles of the sea.” (Isa KJV) No wonder why Eli Soriano used the NIV translation for Isaiah in his article rather than his favorite KJV because it serves his tastes and do him a favor.We need to do the exegesis (reading OUT of the text) in Isaiah in order to arrive at a proper interpretation. The “east” and “Isles of the sea” According to the Biblical Context: Most scholarly Bible commentaries agreed that the phrase “Islands of the Sea” in Isaiah refers to the Mediterranean Sea west of Israel.Adam Clarke comments that the phrase “Isles of the sea” is “chiefly applied to any distant countries, especially those lying on the Mediterranean Sea.” Keil and Delitzsch gave a scholarly remark: “The ground and subject of the rejoicing is “the majesty of Jehovah,” i.e., the fact that Jehovah had shown Himself so majestic in judgment and mercy (Isa.Here is a quote on Isaiah based on New International Version as used in his article: “Therefore in the east give glory to the LORD; exalt the name of the LORD, the God of Israel, in the islands of the sea.” Notice how Eli Soriano understood this verse with the usage of other Bible passages to make Isaiah as though pointing to him and his group: “The Philippines (formerly called “Las Islas Filipinas” in honor of King Philip II of Spain), which is a group of Island in the Pacific Ocean, is included in Biblical prophecies.” “The possibility of this prophecy being fulfilled in the Philippines is 100 percent!Brother Eli and his group are ‘easterners’; and his group is the only congregation in the Philippines that offers the sacrifice of thanksgiving unto the God of Israel — weekly.” “The Philippines as a nation, and Brother Eli as a citizen of the Philippines, is a fulfillment of this prophecy.” Is that true? Eli Soriano also made an emphasis on the word “East” in this verse in order to justify his case that this might be the Philippines since it belongs to the east.Let us read from the official publication of the I. It is not from the Bible but confirmed only from the book named as WORLD HISTORY by BOAK, SLOSSON and ANDERSON! Therefore, Eli Soriano is a PROPAGATOR of Felix Manalo!This is a very clear revelation that Eli Soriano is in fact a Prophet or Spokesman of BOAK, SLOSSON and ANDERSON and not to mention the I. I do not question the fact that Philippines as a Christian nation has a place in the Kingdom of God. God has many children here in the Philippines a truly born again people who were saved by His grace through faith.He wrote: “the spirit of prophecy is the testimony of Jesus (Revelation ). And he said unto me, See thou do it not: I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren that have a testimony of Jesus: worship God: for the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy (Soriano’s emphasis) To whom a prophecy is being fulfilled, there rest the testimony of Jesus.” By applying this to him he may not be aware of the fact that according to the context of Revelation, that having the “Spirit of the prophecy” as the “Testimony of Jesus” is the work of the prophet, and that is according to the parallel passage in Revelation 22:9 (NIV): “But he said to me, “Do not do it!I am a fellow-servant with you and with your brothers the prophets and of all who keep the words of this book. ” Compare this passage with Revelation and see the clear indication that those who have the “Testimony of Jesus” are the “the prophets”. I am a fellow-servant with you and with your brothers who hold to the testimony of Jesus. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” Revelation .Believe it or not, he inherited it from his worst and bitterest enemy, the Iglesia ni Cristo (1914) of Felix Manalo! Eli Soriano was brought up with the “Iglesia ng Diyos” founded by Mr. His article mentioned above also says: “Brother Eli came from among the group he leads.He was never a Catholic, a Protestant, nor a member of any other religious group but the Church of God first preached in the Philippines by Brother Nicholas Perez.” Who then is this Brother Nicholas Perez?
