LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… I have called my bird of prey, my leader, together with my nation from the east, from the far off land, to fulfill my purpose…” (Isaiah 46:11, Bible).

WW2: WAR OF FAITH: Many have been, and still are,  of the perception that the Second World War (or also known as World War 2) was nothing but a war of the nations who were fighting for control of lands in rival countries, to advance their own selfish ambitions to gain more power and wealth for themselves.

But, it would appear now that this kind of a view of the war is a very restrictive perception of the real import of the events that took place during that era. In truth, as the following discourse will try to show, the Second World War was a historical event that God used to clarify to the world various important parts of His Word, the Bible.

It is like this: in Matthew 16:18, Jesus said He will build His own Church. This Church He will put up (or which He has already put up) is the Church of salvation, because the gates of hell will not prevail against it. As a result, it is highly necessary for an individual to join the Church of Jesus.

WHERE IS THE BIBLICAL “EAST” OR “FAR-OFF LAND”? The only problem here is this: Jesus did not say, in Matthew 16:18, or in the whole of Matthew 16 and neither in the whole New Testament, where, or in what place, he will put up His Church. Because of this, there is a need for believers to look into the other parts of the Bible to find the place where Jesus put up His own Church.

Based on studies made by the Simbahang Anak ng Diyos Kadugo Ni Kristo (or AND KNK, or the Children of God Blood Kin of the Christ Church), the exact place where Jesus shall put up His Church could be determined, from Isaiah 46:11. According to the New Living Translation of this verse, it is said that it is in the “east” or “far-off land” that Jesus (in the form or manifestation of God the Father) would call His “leader” and His “nation”.

What is the reason why would Jesus (in the form or manifestation of God the Father) be calling His leader and His nation? This is also stated in Isaiah 46:11—to fulfill His purpose. What is the purpose? To proclaim and clarify to all the truth that Jesus is God and Savior, and is God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and that anyone who believes this will be assured of salvation.

BASED ON THE ACTS OF BELIEVERS, THE PHILIPPINES WAS IDENTIFIED AS THE BIBLICAL “EAST” OR “FAR OFF LAND”: We will try to clarify and provide proof from the Bible that Jesus is God and Davior later. At this point, however, what we wish to expound on are the reasons why we are saying that World War 2 was utilized by Jesus (in the form or manifestation of God the Father)to prove that Philippines, indeed, is the “east” or the “far-off land” referred to in Isaias 46:11.

In this war, the United States created in 1941, as a branch of its government, an agency it called as the “Philippine Department”, to make sure that the Philippines would be assisted against the Japanese. When the war became worse, however, the US changed the name “Philippine Department” into the “United States Army Forces in the Far East” (or USAFFE).

Because of this, it is clear that what the US was referring to as the “Far East” (or the “east”, or the “far off land”)—which is the description used by Jesus (in the form or manifestation of God the Father) in specifying the place where He will call His leader and His nation—is the Philippines.

This single act of the US, which believes in God, so as to gain victory over Japan, which did not believe in God, was God’s proof of the Philippines’ having been chosen as the place where He will put up His Church. (By Atty. Batas Mauricio) -30-
