The Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Godhead. He is God. He is not mere feeling or force. In the Bible, He is often referred to as either the Holy Spirit, the Holy Ghost, or simply the Spirit (with capital ‘S’). Christian life begins by the Holy Spirit, it will also end with the work of the Holy Spirit. In the meantime, the Spirit is working through the believers. Unfortunately, many Christians are yet to learn the truth about the Holy Spirit.
My prayer is that God will use this book to enlighten everyone on the purpose and power of the Holy Spirit in our life. And that we will submit to His sanctification work in our life.
The Biblical Truths about the Holy Spirit
The following are just a few of what the Scripture reveals concerning the Holy Spirit:
1. The Holy Spirit is a Divine Person
The Holy Spirit is not mere feeling or force. The Holy Spirit is God. He is expressly declared as a Person in the scriptures. For instance, In the Gospel of John, Christ refers to Him with possessive pronouns ‘he’ and ‘him’:
John 14:16-17 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
John 15:26 But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me:
Read also John 16:7-15 When Christ was giving the outreach instruction at the end of His earthly ministry, He named the Holy Spirit with the Father and the Son:
Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
2. He Worked Closely With Christ
The Holy Spirit was the closest companion of Jesus Christ during His earthly life and ministry, from His conception to death and resurrection. The New Testament recognizes the ministry of the Holy Spirit in the life of Christ in the following way:
Have you ever wondered why God gave us the Holy Spirit when we believed? If Christ, though He was fully man and fully God during His earthly life and ministry, still depended on the power of the Holy Spirit, how much more do we who are weak in the flesh need the Holy Spirit? If we recognize our brokenness, and depend on the power of the Holy Spirit, we will experience rapid growth and tremendous fruitfulness in our Christian lives. This is exactly why the Spirit was given to the believer. Ultimately He will conform us to the image of Christ.
Ephesians 4:12-13 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: 13 Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.
3. The Holy Spirit Works through the Word
The Spirit does not function outside of the Word of God. The following section will help us to better understand the point.
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
The Spirit teaches us all things through the Scriptures, He reveals Christ through the Scriptures inspired by Him. The only way we can glory Christ in our lives is by living according to His will which we cannot learn outside of the Scriptures. Do we get where we’re going with all these? Let’s continue.
John 14:21, 23 He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him. 23 Jesus answered and said unto him, if a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.
John 15:7 If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.
1 Peter 1:22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently:
As believers in Christ, the will of God by which we have to live our lives is outlined in the Scriptures which was inspired by the Holy Spirit. According to the Apostle Peter above, we obey the truth only “through the Spirit”. It is impossible for you to obey the truth of which you are unaware, and even when you’re aware of it, it is still impossible for you to obey it based upon your own strength or discipline. “For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.” Philippians 2:13. This is the work of the Holy Spirit in the believers’ lives.
John 14:26 But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
1 John 2:24, 27 Let that therefore abide in you, which ye have heard from the beginning. If that which ye have heard from the beginning shall remain in you, ye also shall continue in the Son, and in the Father. 27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.
2 Timothy 3:15 And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
If the Holy Spirit works through the Scriptures, and you cannot obey the truth that you have not learned, then the Holy Spirit will not work in you if you’re not conversant with the Word. This makes sense since yielding requires that you know the commandments to which you are to yield, and it gives way to the move and filling of the Spirit. This does not mean that a believer who is devoid of the Scriptures does not have indwelling Spirit, it just means that the Spirit is yet to be in control of his or her life. To be filled with the Spirit is to be full of the truth of Christ which will in turn produces the desire to live for Him. This point is the reason for Colossians 3:16-17:
Colossians 3:16-17 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.
To learn more on the relationship between the Spirit and the Word of God, please read the connection between Colossians 3:16-17 and Ephesians 5:18-20.
4. The Holy Spirit Functions in Salvation
“The genuine purpose and power of His [The Holy Spirit] ministry: freeing sinners from death, giving them everlasting life, regenerating their hearts, transforming their nature, empowering them for spiritual victory, confirming their place in the family of God, interceding for them according to the will of God, sealing them securely for their eternal glory, and promising to raise them to immortality in the future.”
According to the Ephesians 1:13, no one can be saved without first hearing and believing the Word of truth. This is the same truth which is revealed by the Holy Spirit. He inspired the Word of truth:
2 Peter 1:19-21 We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts: 20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. 21 For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man: but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.
Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.
Also, the Bible says concerning the Holy Spirit that He is the One who helps the sinner to obey the truth:
1 Peter 1:22 Seeing ye have purified your souls in obeying the truth through the Spirit unto unfeigned love of the brethren, see that ye love one another with a pure heart fervently.
He is also the One who illuminates the truth of the scripture in the heart of the believers (read 1 Corinthians 2:10-15).
The Spirit proceeds in convicting the sinners in three areas as outlined by Christ in John 16:7-11
Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. 8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: 9 Of sin, because they believe not on me; 10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; 11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
After heartily receiving the truth of the gospel, the Holy Spirit regenerates the sinful heart, converting them from being dead in sin to being alive in Christ:
Ephesians 2:4-6 But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, 5 Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) 6 And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus
Titus 3:4-7 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared, 5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost; 6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour; 7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.
The principal purpose of the Holy Spirit is to point the world to Christ (John 14:26, 16:14; 1 John 4:2-3) and in turn conform them to the image of Christ.
5. The Holy Spirit is Building the Church
The Holy Spirit forms and is still building up the believers today. The Spirit regenerates and baptizes all believers into one Body according to:
1 Corinthians 12:12-13 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. 13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
In addition to the Spirit baptism, the Holy Spirit also imparts gifts for service to every member of that Body of Christ.
1 Corinthians 12:7-11 But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal. 8 For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit; 9 To another faith by the same Spirit; to another the gifts of healing by the same Spirit; 10 To another the working of miracles; to another prophecy; to another discerning of spirits; to another divers kinds of tongues; to another the interpretation of tongues: 11 But all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
Not only does the Spirit gives the gifts for services, He also empowers the believers to serve:
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Read also: Acts 2:4; 1 Corinthians 2:4. The Spirit also provides guidance in Christian service:
Acts 16:6 Now when they had gone throughout Phrygia and the region of Galatia, and were forbidden of the Holy Ghost to preach the word in Asia.
Read also Luke 2:27; 4:1.
The presence of the Holy Spirit in the gathering of the believers makes them the temple of God.
1 Corinthians 3:16-17 Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you? 17 If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which temple ye are.”
This should not be confused with the temple of God in individual believer as in
2 Corinthians 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
The Holy Spirit is the Seal and the Sealer of the Believers
Ephesians 1:13-14 In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise, 14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory.
Believers are guaranteed eternal security. We can never lose our salvation. The Bible says that those whom God predestinated, called, and justified, He also glorified. This is a done deal. Christ confirms this Himself:
John 10:27-30 My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me: 28 And I give unto them eternal life; and they shall never perish, neither shall any man pluck them out of my hand. 29 My Father, which gave them me, is greater than all; and no man is able to pluck them out of my Father’s hand. 30 I and my Father are one.
And so did the Apostle Paul:
Romans 8:35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
The reality of this is brought to light by the Scripture. The presence of the Holy Spirit in us is proof that we belong to God (1 John 4:4), that we are secured by God (Romans 8:9-11; 2 Corinthians 5:5), and that God will still return to take us home (John 14:3).
The Spirit is named the earnest [down payment] of our inheritance (Ephesians 1:13-14; 2 Corinthians 1:20-22), and we are sealed by Him until our glorification, “the redemption of the purchased possession”.
Romans 8:9-11 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his. 10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness. 11 But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
“The Spirit has been sent by Christ from the Father, and in Christ He has sealed us — sealed us, you see until the whole possession purchased by the death of the cross is redeemed from the last adverse power that tends to hold it in bondage; that is, until the coming of the Lord. The Spirit is given to abide with us forever.
“AND THIS GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM SHALL BE PREACHED IN ALL THE WORLD FOR A WITNESS UNTO ALL NATION: AND THEN SHALL THE END COME.”
This the GOOD NEWS of Jesus Christ in His second appearance will not make Himself be recognized personally because, in Revelation we find these words: “I COME AS A THIEF.” Also in Matthew these words are recorded, “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not angels of heaven but my Father.”
Now, if we reason it carefully, when a thief wishes to rob a house, he has to disguise himself in a way to avoid detection by anyone.
Jesus Christ, because of His Godship has foreseen that on the event he returns to this world there would be not only one Judas but millions of them ready to refuse 6 or ready to deny His Godship and His doctrine that MAN AND GOD ARE EQUAL OR I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE.
This is the very doctrine that cause the Jews to be angry with Him “because He made Himself equal with God.” And now, General Moncado is teaching the world that MAN AND GOD ARE EQUAL through the Man’s Moral Concept. ARE WE GOING TO MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE AS THE JEWS DID TWO THOUSAND YEARS AGO? We hope with all sincerity that this thing must not happened again. Once is enough. All E. F. B. Students in the world today are praying that the world must not make the same mistake twice. Please do not just read your Bible but learn them.
Read carefully the following words which arte recorded in Matthew 24: 6-8 and Luke 21: 25-26. Many of these things have already come to pass. Others are about to come. Because these are the words of the Master every one of them will surely come, Listen, let us read them to you.
“AND YOU SHALL HEAR OF WARS AND RUMORS OF WARS: SEE THAT YE BE NOT TROUBLED: BUT THYE END IS NOT YET, FOR NATIONS SHALL RISE AGAINST NATION, AND KINGDOM AGAINST KINGDOM, AND THERE SHALL BE FAMINES, AND PESTILENCES, AND EARTH QUAKES IN DIVERS PLACES, ALL THESE THINGS ARE THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS.”
“AND THERE SHALL BE SIGNS IN THE SUN, AND IN THE MOON, AND IN THE STARS; AND UPON THE EARTH DISTRESS OF NATIONS WITH PERPLEXITY: THE SEA AND THE WAVES ROARING, MEN’S HEART FAILING THEM FOR FEAR, AND FOR LOOKING AFTER THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE COMING ON THE EARTH FOR THE POWERS OF HEAVEN SHALL BE SHAKEN.”
These are the signs that He is at the door ready to enter this world. But He is no longer at the door. He has entered, and He is one among you now. The trouble is that you don’t know how to find Him among the large crowd of humanity. It is just like looking for a needle in the hay stack. But there is only one way to do it and that is to be a moral being. In order to do that, we have to study, observe and “should strictly, literally, divinely follow the Moral Concept of Man.” Only a moral beings is able to penetrate into the elements of His disguise.
“I COME AS A THIEF.” If it is so, then it is no wonder that only a few have found and be
In the next several books and chapters we will know who is the Holy Spirit, His teachings, His Commandments, His Church and His chosen people; He who abide in Him shall live forever with Him in His coming Kingdom; hold on to end!
Cirilo T. Demetria
The Prophesy of the birth of the human mechanism of the Holy Spirit. A Priest sees the future.
The Rev. Father Benito Ramiro, said to be a native of Poro, Camotes Island, Cebu, Philippines, was the Parish Priest of Balamban, Cebu, long before the birth of Hilario Camino Moncado. It is said that he possessed certain strange and unnatural powers that could baffle and amaze anyone. Sometimes, he was seen by church-goers as a miracle man because he seems to be floating on the air while performing the mass as he will rise up barely one foot above the floor of the church. Many old folks of the town today still remembers him for being a very good Priest and loyal to flock. He helped them in their hour of trouble and consoled them in their hour of grief. Aside from the fact that he possessed certain strange and unnatural powers, he was a very good-natured man and devoted to his duty as the spiritual guardian of the people.
Such being the case, naturally many strange stories have cropped up in connection with his name. Here is one case in point. “One day as the story goes, a certain devout Catholic told the good Priest that someone who is selling cooked food in the market was a Protestant convert and that he was despising and ridiculing the said Priest. Whereupon, the venerable old Priest said, “someday that man will come to me with bended knees to ask for my forgiveness for he knew not what he was doing.” Not long afterwards, true to his words, the same man came to him for forgiveness with his knees to show his respect for him. In a signed statement now in the possession of the writer, a centenarian, one Francisco Miñoza by name, residing at Prenza, Balamban, Cebu, Philippines, told me this incident during an interview I had with him at his residence, aside from the mentioned above. This concerned with Priest’s debate with Protestant Minister. “It was the custom of the Priest in those days to summon four men from every barrio in the town by turns every week in order to help him in the church services and in the convent. That the very week beginning Sunday, it was our turn. So we came over to the convent and waited for his orders. I was assigned to help in the convent while the others were assigned in the church. At about 9:00 o’clock in the morning of that Sunday, while I was performing my duty in the convent, a certain person by the name of Ricardo, a Protestant Minister came to the convent and seated. After the church services, the Rev. Father came up to the convent and upon seeing Ricardo said, “How are you, and anything I can do for you? Answered Ricardo, “I came here to have a debate with you regarding religion”. The Rev. Father then said, “Francisco, put cigarettes on the plate and place them on the table without a match. Also, open the window facing the Island of Negros across the Tañon strait, where Kanlaon Volcano is located.” I obeyed as commanded. Then he said, “now Ricardo, before we begin our debate on religion, we will have a smoke first”. Their upon the Protestant Minister draw a match from his vest pocket which was labeled “”smoking” and handed it to the Priest. At this juncture, the Rev. Father countered, “we will not use any match to light our cigarettes but instead we will light our cigarettes with the fire on the top of Kanlaon Volcano on Negros just across the sea. Ricardo replied that it cannot be done and I cannot do it. Instantly, the Priest stood up with the cigarette in his mouth and facing Negros lighted his cigarette. Amazed and dumbfounded, the Protestant Minister dropped his head low and never uttered a word seeing this mystery. Then I a voice filled with emotion, he said, “Ricardo, before my blood runs high against you, you better get out, and if I had not pitted you I would have you returned home swimming in fire and water”. The Protestant Minister get out and never returned.
The people of Balamban in those days highly regarded him and considered him a prophet for he seems to foresee new and strange things to come in the future. For example, according to the old folks of the place, in one of his prophetic sermons on the pulpit, he once said, “You people who are here today will have the opportunity to witness new and strange things to come in the future. During that time you will be able to see beautiful roads and bridges; horse drawn carriages; and you will marvel at the iron and steel flying, floating and swinging on the air, floating on the ocean and traveling under the seas, running to and fro on the beautiful roads and bridges without exhaustion. You will also witness great changes in the lives, customs and habits of the people due to the conflicting philosophies of life, great religious movement and denominations that will cropped up in order to confuse the minds of the people in their unceasing search for truth in their relation to their Creator, God; and finally, a great, spectacular and mysterious organization will be born amidst this chaotic condition of the world, whose teachings and principles will revolutionize the thinking of the people and in the will rule the world so that Peace and Goodwill may predominate among men”.
This was not the condition of the times at that period of history. Slowly but surely came the great changes that we now witnessing in this Atomic Age. Some of the people who were able to hear that memorable sermon on the pulpit recalled that what he said are now slowly but surely coming true. We have now beautiful roads and bridges with vehicles of all kinds running to and fro without exhaustion. We are now seeing space ship of all kinds such as the airplane, jet planes, clippers, dirigibles, and all kinds of aircraft floating and swinging through the air, and all kinds of automobiles and trucks on the roads, railroad trains and all kinds of locomotives; huge ships floating on the ocean and submarines plowing under the seas; we have also witnessing great changes in the lives and costumes of the people, we have witnessed the greatest upheavals in history which was the 1st and 2nd World wars due to the conflicting philosophies of the life and religious turmoil. All these things were unheard off in those good old days. And finally, now we are witnessing the birth of a great Philosophy of Life that Man and God are equal, a new and strange concept of life. The Filipino Federation of America, Inc., and the Filipino Crusaders World Army, Inc., both organizations founded and organized by General Hilario Camino Moncado, which give birth to this New Philosophy of Life, the MAN’S MORAL CONCEPT”, the doctrine of Life and Salvation and the new doctrine that Man and God are equal is teaching the world a New Way to find God, a New Way to worship Him and New Way to human salvation. This philosophy teaches man to keep away from all vices and evils of this world so that Peace and Goodwill will reign all over the world. This instance in the life of this beloved Priest of Balamban was enough to convince the people in those days of his marvelous powers that could baffle and amaze people. So they regarded him as a prophet who could forecast the events of the future. It is no wonder then that he predicted the birth of Hilario Camino Moncado to the world. While the birth of Jesus Christ, the Savior and Redeemer of mankind was prophesied by the prophet Isaiah many centuries ago before His birth, so the birth of General Hilario Camino Moncado was also prophesied by the late Rev. Father Benito Ramiro, regarded by the people in those days as a prophet.
Prediction of a Priest
Many years before General Hilario Camino Moncado was born, the Parish Priest of Balamban, Cebu, Philippines, the Rev. Father Benito Ramiro, who was formerly an Army Chaplain, in one of his numerous sermons on the pulpit, said, “Today, Balamban has no professionals and distinguished men, because the people are vicious, while Asturias, a neighboring town, which was frormerly a part of the town of Balamban known as barrio Nagbalin, boasts of many professionals and distinguished men, because the people are God-fearing, law abiding and have no vices. But there shall be born in Balamban – One who shall be a great leader and who shall rule the world.” This particular and memorable sermon was revealed to this writer during an interview he had given at his residence in Pondol, Balamban, Cebu, Philippines, by the late Municipal Councilor of Balamban and the Sacristan Mayor of the Priest during that period, the late Francisco Dalugdog.
Ang not long after those prophetic words were uttered by the venerable old Priest, Moncado was born. The birth of Moncado therefore, was the culmination of a long-felt need of great men to give honor to the town. His birth was surrounded by mystery so much so that his neighbors dubbed him as a strange, mysterious and unusal child. The good old Priest lived to see his prediction come true that One will be born in Balamban who was destined to rule the world, much more, he was given the opportunity to baptize the child. And probably, that was the reason why the said Priest postponed the baptism of Moncado and 12 other male babies, number 13 in all, because he had seen one child who was strange, mysterious and unusual. Unfortunately, however, he did not live to witness the work and achievement of Moncado today, who is destined to rule the world. For today, he is worshiped by thousands upon thousands of his followers all over the world. And the town of Asturias today boast of two Representatives who graced the Halls of Congress of the Philippines, during the pre-war years, the late Jose and Tomas Alonso, representing the 7th District of Cebu, both distinguished sons of Asturias. Perhaps, the said Priest left it to posterity to vindicate his predictions,, and Time alone will tell all.
Many centuries ago, the birth of Jesus the Christ was also prophesied by the Prophet Isiah. Read Isiah9: 6, it is written, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall called Wonderful, counsellor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” This prophesy consists of two parts. The first part, “For unto us a child is born,” was already fulfilled by the birth of Jesus Christ, and the second part, and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace, is yet to be fulfilled. And Christ promised to come again to rule the world. He will come in the New Name, which no man knoweth, saving he that receiveth it, Revelation 2: 17. Jesus death on the cross cut short his mission, thus left his work unfinished. So, He is coming again, to finish the work.
And now in our 20th century, a baby-boy is born in the East, particularly in the small village of Pondol, Balamban, Cebu, Philippines. His birth was predicted by no less than the Parish Priest of the said town. His mission in life is also the same as that of Jesus Christ, that of serving humanity. Jesus Christ was serving humanity by paving the way for salvation of man for He said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” Nobody can go to my heavenly Father, except thru me, for “I and my Father are One.” Unfortunately, He had only begun to teach this wonderful doctrine to the people when death caught Him on the cross. He died for serving humanity and the salvation of the world.
On the other hand, Moncado whose mission in life is the same as that of Jesus Christ, gave to the world His New Moral Code, the New Doctrine of Life, the Man’s Moral Concept.” The new Doctrine of Salvation and the new Doctrine that Man and God are equal, which is His modern interpretation of Christ’s Doctrine that “I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE.” Is teaching the world the highest morality and that is to keep away from all vices and evils of this world so that the salvation of man will be achieved. Such being the case, no doubt the long-dream of “Peace on earth and Goodwill to men” will predominate on this earth. No wonder then that Moncado is called the Prince of Peace.
Undoubtedly, the signs of the times point to the fact that the predictions of the Priest that “One will be born in Balamban who shall be a great leader and who shall rule the world” is nearing fulfillment.

KINSA UG UNSA SI DR. HILARIO CAMINO MONCADO?
(Sinulat ni Cornelio C. Clenuar, Manager and Division Secretary of Visayas)
Sa tuig 1933, si Cornelio C. Clenuar, Manager sa Cebu Branch ug Division Secretary sa Visayas ming bisita sa Pondol, Balamban, Cebu aron sa pagsusi sa mananabang sa pagkatawo ni Moncado ug gipatawag niya ang mananabang didto sa balay sa igsoon ni Moncado.
CLENUAR: Manang, ikaw ba ang mananabang sa pagkatawo ni Moncado? Isaysay kanako ang mga kahibulongan nga imong nakita sapagkatawo niMoncado.
MANANABANG: Senior, ang amahan ug inahan ni Larion (Dr.Moncado) akong kompare ug kumare. Sa nagsabak na si Kumare Felomina (inahan ni Dr. Moncado) sa may tulo na ka bulan ang bata sa iyang tiyan nagpahilot siya didto sa akong balay. Sa mag ika-pito na ka bulan ang bata nga iyang gisabak, mingbalik siya aron sa pagpahilot kon anaa na ba sa lugar ang bata, ug siya miingon kanako, Kumare unsa man kining bataa nga akong gisabak madungog man nako nga mag-uha sa akong tiyan. Ug, ako Senior ming-ingon, Kumare kanang bataa nga imong gisabak may tuga kana gikan sa Diyos. Ug karon pa ako makadungog ug bata nga anaa pa sa sulod sa tiyan sa usa ka inahan nga mag-uha! Busa kanang bataa DAKUNG KAHIBULONGAN! Ug sa ika-siyam ka bulan si Pare Gorio (amahan ni Dr. Moncado) namukaw kanako sa tungang gabii kay nagbati na si Kumare Felomina. Mingbangon ako dayon ug nanghipos sa akong galamiton sa pagpanabang ug akong giingnan si Pareng Gorio, Pre, pagbutok ug langkay kay atong iiwag sa dalan kay labing kangitngit karon. Ug human ako makahipos sa akong gamit nanaug ako sa among hagdanan ug sa pagtunob ko sa yuta sa among tugkaran nakaingon ako ug “JESUS MARIA JOSEPH” kay kalit lang ang hilabihang kahayag sa kalibutan ang pagsidlak sa kahayag sa bitoon nga “KOMITA” dapit sa silangan ug ang puntirya sa kahayag mao ang barrio Pondol, Balamban, Cebu nga mao ang natawhan ni Moncado (Pinadayag22:16). Ug akong gisinggitan si Pare Gorio, Pare, ayaw nalang pagbutok ug langkay kay hayag kayo ang bitoon nga KOMITA. Sa paglakaw namo una nga nahiabot si Pareng Gorio sa ilang balay kay paspas man siyang molakaw, ug sa pag-abot ko sa ilang balisbisan sa ilang balay nadungog ko ang bata sa itaas sa ilang balay nga nag-uha…uha…uha…uha, ug nakaingon ako nga “SALAMAT SA DIYOS NGA NAHIMUGSOAN NA SI MARENG FELOMINA SA BATA.” Ug sa pagsaka ko sa ilang balay didto si Mareng Felomina naglingkod sa ilang lantay ug daku ang akong katingala kay buros paman siya. Ug unya akong gipahigda si Mareng Felomina ug akong gihikap ang iyang tiyan ug wala madugay nahimugso ang bata. Akong gihugtan ang bakus ni Mareng Felomina ug gihilot ko ang iyang tiyan, human mahilot mitindog ako ug nagkuha sa suga aron ang bata na usab ang akong atimanon. Sa pag-iwag ko sa bata nahibulong ako kay ang bata pinutlan naman sa pusod ug akong gihikap owat naman daan ang pusod. Ug nakaingon ako, Mare ugPare unsa may birtud niining bataa nga owat naman ang pusod daan.Ug akong gibantayan ang pagsunod sa paggula sa inunlan hangtud nagbuntag wala gayud mogula ang inunlan (Ezequil 16:4).Mao kini Senior ang ikasaysay ko kanimo nga si Larion Moncado natawo nga kahibulongan kay gisubangan ug komita sama sa pagkatawo ni Jesus, nag-uha sa didto pa sa tiyan sa iyang inahan, owat na daan ang pusod,ug walay inonlan.
MESSAGES OF THE MASTER
ANG MISTERYO SA KINABUHI NI DR. HILARIO CAMINO MONCADO UG SA IYANG MISYON NAGABARUG SA NGALAN NI EQUI FRILI BRIUM NGA ANG KAHULUGAN: “AKO MAO ANG DALAN SA PANAGSAMA, AKO MAO ANG KAMATUORAN SA PANAGSOONAY, AKO MAO ANG KINABUHI SA KAGAWASAN, UG ANG MAESTRO SA EQUIFRILIBRICUM.”
“ALL MEN ARE CREATED EQUAL” – managsama ang tanan nga binuhat nga kaliwat ni Adan ug Eva.Kon ang tawo may pagtoo sa Diyos magatahud ug magapasidungog gayud siya sa isig ka tawo ubos sa lunsay nga gugma matud pa, ‘MAGHIGUGMAAY KAMO ANG USA UG USA’ (Juan 13:34, Mateo 22:36-39).
Ang labing taas nga pagtan-aw sa birtud sa panagsama mao ang pagtan-aw sa Dios nga anaa sa matag usa ka tawo. Kon kita nakaila sa Diyos, nakaila usab kita sa Dios nga anaa sa tawo kay ang tawo matud pa sa Kasulatan, Diyos man (Mga Buhat 14:11; Salmo 82:6; Juan 10:34).
Salmo 82:6 – Ako miingon: “Kamo man mga diyos, ug kamong tanan mga anak sa Hataas Uyamot.” Juan 10:34 – Si Jesus mitubag kanila: “Dili ba nahisulat man sa inyong Balaod, Ako miingon: “Kamo mga diyos."
Mga Buhat 14:11 – “Ang mga diyos nahimong sama sa mga tawo ug nanaug nganhi kanato.”
Si E.F.B. naghatag ug kinabuhi sa pulong ni Jesus nga nag-ingon: “Dili lamang sa tinapay mabuhi ang tawo, kondili sa tanan nga pulong nga nagagula sa baba sa Diyos”(Mateo 4:4). Ang paagi UNSAON pagpakabuhi nga ”dili mokaon ug dili moinum” gitudlo ni E.F.B. pinaagi ni Director L. D. Reyes (E.F.B.D.) sukad pa sa 1925 ubos sa kalagdaan sa ”Scientific Experimentation of the Economic Formula of Life”(SEEFL).Ang SEEFL nagadala sa tawo ngadto sa kalmado nga panghunahuna ug kinabuhi nga nagtimaan sa ”bunga sa espiritu nga mao kini: gugma, kalipay, pakigdait, pagkamapailubon, pagkamahinuklogon, pagkamaayo, pagkamatinumanon, pagkaaghop, pagpugong sa kaugalingon (Galacia 5:22-23). Ang pag-ugmad sa usa ka matuod nga Kristohanong panag-uban maoy tumong ni Dr.Moncado sa iyang mga tinun-an kay ang dako ug langitnong tinguha mao man ang paghimo sa tawo nga sama sa Diyos ubos sa pagtulun-ang moral ug sa langitnong kinaadman.
“Igamantala ninyo ang kagawasan ngadto sa tibuok nga yuta alang sa tanang mga pumuluyo niini (Levitico25:10). Ang SEEFL nagatudlo sa tawo sa pagpakabuhi sa lunlon prutas ug utanon. Kini gahatag sa kagawasan sa tanang may kinabuhi.
Apan kamo, ayaw kamo pagpatawag nga Rabi, kay usa ra ang inyong Magtutudlo, samtang tanan kamo mga igsoon. Dugang pa, ayaw ninyo tawga nga amahan ang bisan kinsa dinhi sa yuta, kay usa ra ang inyong Amahan, ang Langitnong Usa. Ni magpatawag kamo nga mga pangulo, kay usa ra ang inyong Pangulo, ang Kristo (Mateo 23:8-10).Giawhag ang tanan sa pagtuon sa MAN’S MORAL CONCEPT nga mao ang sagrado ug bugtong tulumanon alang sa kalinaw sa kalibutan ug alang sa gingharian nga walay pagkatapos sa tinagoang kahulugan taliwala sa espirituhanong lamdag ug ubos sa usa ka Magtutudlo.
Ang Agila matud pa sa World Book Encyclopedia gipili nga nasudnong langgam sa America sa tuig 1782 ug kini nagsimbolo sa kagawasan ug gahum. Sa tuig 1914 si Dr. Moncado miadto sa America ug gitukod niya ang balaang nasud didto sa nasud sa mga agila - usa ka gingharian ug usa ka siyudad nga mao ang siyudad nga bag-o, ang EQUIFRILIBRICUM. Ang Agila mabasa nato sa Exodus 19:4-6. 4 Kamo nanagpakakita sa gibuhat ko sa mga Egiptohanon, ug giunsa ko pagdala kamo sa ibabaw sa mga pako sa mga agila, ug gidala ko kamo nganhi kanako. 5 Busa karon, kong kamo maga patalinghug gayud sa akong tingog, ug magabantay kamo sa akong tugon, nan kamo mamahimong akong kaugalingon nga bahandi gikan sa kinataliwad-an sa tanang mga katawhan: kay ang tibook yuta ako man. 6 Ug alang kanako kamo mahimong usa ka gingharian sa mga sacerdote, ug usa ka balaan nga nasud.
“Ang magamadaugon – ako magahimo kaniya nga haligi diha sa templo sa akong Diyos, ug dili na gayud siya mogula pa gikan niini ug igasulat ko diha kaniya ang ngalan sa akong Diyos ug ang ngalan sa siyudad sa akong Diyos, ang bag-ong Jerusalem nga manaug gikan sa akong Diyos, ug kanang bag-o ko nga ngalan (Pinadayag 3:12).Ang katumanan niini sa page 240 sa ”Every Day New and Wonder.”
MONCADO and HIS MISSION BULLETIN
MONCADO ---THE MASTER OF MORALITY
In 1928 about 27 years ago, a famous American Journalist, Wm. J. Schaefle, Editor and Owner of the American Globe wrote a booklet entitled MONCADO AND HIS MISSION.
In the eyes of this American, he saw Moncado as a man with a mission of divine significance not only for his own people but for the whole world. He summarized the Moncado he saw in 1928 with these words:
“A native Filipino in the United States, a young man with a mission, who claims to be the WORLD’S SERVANT who has been termed a wizard, a man of mystery, who has created a movement that is growing rapidly, has secured more national recognition than any other man of his own country, the Philippine Islands, that for years has been governed by Filipino legislators under the jurisdiction of the United States Government.”
During this period of history, Moncado was a very young man. He began to reveal some portions of his real purpose in life, his mission, and his life’s work given to him by God, the Creator of this Universe. Later, his belief which is based on his philosophy that MAN AND GOD ARE EQUAL is manifested in the Man’s Moral Concept, “That the paramount duty of every man is to serve humanity.”
As a man created in the image and likeness of the Creator, he claimed to be the SERVANT OF THE WORLD which means it is his paramount duty to serve humanity. Moved by the grace and power of this belief, he taught his six and a half million followers all over the world the value and blessing of “Humanity be served is a moral virtue of every man to achieve in life.”
These thoughts are divine because it is moral, and moral, according to his philosophy, is God. Therefore, the Man’s Moral Concept is a divine revelation of God’s Will and Purpose to save man and his civilization from total ruins and destructions.
If we study the New Testament of the Holy Bible with an open mind, we come to a definite conclusion that the life General Moncado had led so far is but the repetition of the life of Jesus our Lord when the latter worked hard in his three years of ministry to prove to man that he and God are EQUAL. Jesus said, “I and my Father are ONE.” It is because of this pronouncement that the “Jews sought more to kill him.” He knows that he must suffer on the hands of the people to prove his belief or philosophy of Equality, Fraternity, and Liberty. Her permitted himself to be arrested by those who seek to kill him and willingly gave himself up to suffer on the cross because he believes that “Life is but service and suffering for the love of humanity.”
To serve and to suffer for the love of our fellowmen are God’s way to attain life here on earth. Jesus said, “Love thy fellowmen as thyself.” By observing the principles embedded in these words, we are enjoying life here on earth in God’s way.
Today, in the midst of fear and confusion, we saw a man in General Moncado, the Master of Morality who is willing to serve and suffer not for our sins but for his great love of this world and his fellowmen. His willingness to suffer for humanity is the moral evidence that God is in him because only God himself is willing to serve and suffer for the love of humanity.
But where is General Moncado today?
A years ago, you have probably read in your local paper or in some nationally known periodicals that he is an unwelcome visitor to the United States of America subject to deportation. The General has not done anything wrong against the Law of man nor against the Law of God. But why is he being treated that way? He has been educated in American schools. Through many years of wonderful associations with Americans in America and abroad he learned and valued the precious American Way of Life. His life and his work is dedicated to the establishment of a great friendship, understanding, and everlasting Brotherhood between the American people and the Filipino people. That is why he proposed in Congress in his fight for Philippine Independence about 84 years ago, that Filipinos must be given their Independence on July 4, 1946, so that Americans and Filipinos will celebrate together forever as long as they shall live.
Is this the mind of a man who should be deported? I think the Doctor has the wrong patient.
The Students of E.F.B., 1728 strong, know who is behind all these movements against General Moncado, their Master. Because the General is openly fighting against the forces that seek to destroy America and the American Way of Life, it is only natural that the elements behind this movement to deport him are the Godless Communism, led and supported by his own countrymen who pose as a friend of America. I shall let the words of an influential American tell you what I really mean –
This American editor further wrote about the Moncado in 1928. He said, “Strange as it may appear, the bitter and merciless attacks by word and print hurled at Moncado from Filipinos in the Philippine Islands and Filipinos in the United States, failed to dampen his ardor or grind his indomitable spirit in the dust, but instead caused his movement to grow. Americans who heard of these attacks, attributed them to jealousy and bolshevism on the part of the attackers. They thought it very strange that a young, popular Filipino, whose ultimate purpose is to secure Independence of the Philippine Islands, in harmony with the United States legislation, should be so bitterly attacked by his own countrymen.”
Jealousy and bolshevism are the blackest evils that grapple the inner structure of mankind since the day Cain was born into this world. Cain, the first son of Adam and Eve, was a communist and the father of it. He was the first murderer and disbeliever. His evil works plagued every human soul alive today. His descendants all through the ages advocate murder, war, strikes, and all forms of troubles. To cover his evils he uses systematic lies carried by well organized net-work of liars. Today, in our modern civilization, one can easily identify them. They always attack by word and print those who favor God’s mission here on this earth. Our Lord Jesus, the human mechanism of God Christ was the innocent victim of jealousy and bolshevism on the part of the attackers.
General Moncado was also the innocent victim of jealousy and bolshevism after World War II. He was not crucified nor shot to death by the attackers. His attackers were Filipinos by look but inside they were hungry godless communists.
Since 1925 up to this very moment he is always working to improve the relationship between Filipinos and Americans. All his activities since the Filipino Federation of America was founded in 1925 December 27, were purely Moncado’s demonstration of his love for Americans and the American Way of Life.
To the members of the Filipino Federation of America of which he is the founder and life-time president, he taught them how to love America and the Americans by encouraging them to become naturalized American citizens. Today, thousands of them are naturalized American citizens ready and willing to fight the enemies of the American Way of Life,yet General Hilario Camino Moncado, the man who is responsible for all these things receive no credit whatsoever.In fact many have doubted and misunderstood his motives, especially his works.
The six and a half million followers of General Hilario Camino Moncado all over the world just couldn’t arrive at the right answer, why their life-time president, their leader, their Master is being denied permanent resident of the United States of America. Morally, we do not blame Congress or anyone, not even the American people for not wanting General Moncado as their neighbor because we know who cried the loudest to deny him that wonderful privilege, none other than the Filipinos themselves in Washington.
Well, to understand Moncado and His Mission, first we must understand Jesus and also His Mission here on earth. To understand Jesus, we must study the Holy Bible both Old and the New Testament. That takes a lot of study, especially when it involves time and lots of work. To all lovers of the Way, the Truth, and the Life, to them the study of General Moncado’s life and his work is very interesting. Why?Because it follows the same pattern as that Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ was accused by his own people of being against the Roman Government. He was arrested but Pilate washed his hands signifying that in this man Jesus, he found no fault. But the Jews, his own people and blood pressed the charges on by crucifying him to death. But before this, Jesus claimed that he and God are equal, and this proclamation irritated his own people and that made them “sought more to kill him.”
Briefly, Jesus died on the cross and on the third day he came back to life.And we read that forty days and forty nights he was with his disciples eating and drinking. After that he disappeared and no one has ever seen him since.It is recorded that he promised to come back in order to finish the work that his Father had given him. Today, more than ever, all Christians the world over are awaiting for the Master’s return to this world.
Let us ask ourselves are we ready to receive him? On the other hand, since the day Jesus Christ disappeared with a promise, up to this very day we heard no one but General Moncado who said that Man and God are equal.
Somewhere in this pamphlet you will find the famous Man’s Moral Concept, a new doctrine, a revelation of the life of Christ in his second advent into this world and this is God’s purpose revealing his WILL to save humanity. But this must be clearly understood that we have no intentions of converting anyone or anybody. We are just merely telling the GOOD NEWS. Because Jesus Christ already told us that before the end comes the GOOD NEWS must be preached to all nations.
Therefore, this little pamphlet is made possible by the effort of the 1728 E.F.B. Students who are trying to reach you. So, if you have this pamphlet in your possession they feel that they have accomplished their MISSION.
MONCADO AND HIS MISSION BULLETIN, though little, is our bid for Peace of the world.
Since time, immemorial mankind has sought PEACE --- Peace that brings happiness to his soul, to his mind and body, and everlasting. Also Peace that brings international understanding and harmony.Above all one that unites the nations of the world into a single body under God.
Today, peace in the form of contracts between two or more people, agreements and treatise between group of nations do not last long. The binding force breaks so easily that even on a soft morning air the whole structure of peace shakes and crumbles to the ground.Man in his own wisdom could not find the answer to this perplexing problem. History shows that man tried but failed.
The answer to this particular problem is found in the now famous MAN’S MORAL CONCEPT a new doctrine that Man and God are equal. The man who can tell you how peace of the world can be achieved and established permanently on this earth is the author of this doctrine, the Master of Morality himself, General Hilario Camino Moncado, the Living Philosopher of the Twentieth Century.
Peace is wonderful because it brings us closer to our God the Creator.It gives us man the feeling of happiness and security as we wander through the vastness of this earth, and also harmony and understanding with all God’s creation. It makes us feel that all human beings, regardless of color, race or creed belong to one association, the association of mankind.
Many great thinkers of the past and the present have contributed the best in them in the construction of the most delicate machinery of Peace of the world.But no one among them is able to operate this delicate machinery. To the sight of all the contributors the machinery is complete. The mechanism is perfect. Everything is there, but still the machine does not work. No one among them seems to know the reason why it does not work.
“WITHOUT PEACE, THERE IS NO GOD.” These words came from the Master of Morality himself, General Hilario Camino Moncado.
As a philosopher, he is able to read the signs written up there in the sky by the Almighty. Jesus Christ said, “Watch the sign of my coming.” The signs were there for centuries but no one is able to read them.General Moncado knows and understands the message the sign conveys. “We must not be troubled because it is not yet the end. It is only the beginning of sorrow.”
That is the reason why General Moncado brought into this world, the MAN’S MORAL CONCEPT to save humanity from sorrow. The way to salvation is through the Man’s Moral Concept. Those who rally under this doctrine shall be saved because it is God’s will.
Man cannot attain peace unless his mind and soul are free from the clutches of vices, and vices are evils which destroy the moral structure of our body, our society, and our government.
Moncado, the Moralist and Philosopher of our time wishes that “All men should strictly, literally, divinely follow the moral concept of man, and should fight against all forms of is just like looking for a needle in the hay stack.But there is only one way to do it and that is to be a moral being. In order to do that, we have to study, observe and “should strictly, literally, divinely follow the Moral Concept of Man.” Only a moral being is able to penetrate into the elements of his disguise.
“I COME AS A THIEF.” If it is so, then it is no wonder that only a few have found and believe him today in his present form.
We believe in Democracy. A Democracy based upon the principles of EQUALITY, FRATERNITY, and LIBERTY.Because of these principles, the famous Constitution of the United States of America, the Bill of Rights, the Four Freedoms: namely, Freedom of Speech, Freedom of the Press, Freedom of Assembly and Freedom of Worship were born in the minds of our founding fathers and leaders of our America.
Therefore, the purpose of this Moncado and his Mission Bulletin is not to convert anyone to the philosophy or teachings of General Hilario Camino Moncado, the Master of Morality, but our humble purpose is to tell the world the GOOD NEWS.
It is said in the Holy Bible: “And this gospel of the Kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.”
MAN AND GOD ARE EQUAL
A New Doctrine for Peace and Salvation
MAN AND GOD ARE EQUAL is a new doctrine for peace of the world and for the salvation of mankind based upon Christ Second Advent into this world. In fact this doctrine is not new at all but it is the fulfillment of Christ’s promise to us. Literally, it is the continuation of the wonderful teaching of Jesus that “I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE.”
With the increase of knowledge and the establishment of many great institutions of learning based upon the Apostolic Religion, I believe that many people will refuse to accept outright or take into their system the philosophy of General Hilario Camino Moncado that “MAN AND GOD ARE EQUAL.”
To them it sounds impossible if not insane. Many of them feel that it is incredible to even allow themselves to be entertained by such thoughts or ideas about man, a sinner, “making himself equal with God.”
Under the present existing philosophy which dominates the minds of the world today and, upon which the present civilization is founded, the whole idea is unsound or even unhealthy for any man to say it, that is true.
But if we study the Scriptures and learn to understand the Master’s words as recorded, from Matthew all through Revelation, our conclusive thoughts would be that our Master actually was teaching the MAN’S MORAL CONCEPT that Man and God are equal.
About two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ initiated this doctrine when he said to his fellow Jews that “I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE.” The Jews understood what he meant when he said those six words squarely before them. Here is the reaction of the people at that time according to St. John 5:18. . . “Therefore, the Jews sought more to kill him, because he not only had dishonor the Sabbath but said also that God was his Father making himself equal with God.”
Also in 10:33, it is recorded. . . The Jews answered him saying, “For good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou being a man, makest thyself God.” Jesus Christ claimed that he is the Son of God. And he has all the rights in the world for saying it, because it is true according to the prophets. But General Hilario Camino Moncado never said that he is God or personally claimed that he is Christ. But his work proclaimed him that he is the “human mechanism” of Christ in his second appearance on this earth.
And that is exactly what Jesus was trying to make the Jews understand him at that time. But the Jews refused and so does the Filipinos today. What is happening to Jesus Christ before, is also happening today to General Hilario Camino Moncado. It is true that a “prophet hath no honour in his own country,” and Jesus admitted this as recorded in St. John 4:44. It is also true with the General. Why is it that these things happened to both of them?
The doctrine that “I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE” made the Jews very angry.And the doctrine that “MAN AND GOD ARE EQUAL” also made the Filipinos angry. The Jews conspired to kill Jesus, and they have succeeded. But they can never kill Christ for Christ is God, and no one under the sun is able to Kill God. The Filipinos also conspired to stop him so that he cannot teach the world of his doctrine that “MAN AND GOD ARE EQUAL.” Can they succeed like the Jews? Time will tell. But this much I can say. Although the Jews have succeeded in crucifying Jesus many years ago I believe that the Filipinos can never succeed in their effort to stop Moncado.Why? Because Moncado is standing by America and he is with America and for America. In other words, the United States of America is the “human mechanism of God Christ in his wisdom and serving the world for the love of humanity.” As long as America lives, Moncado also lives, because Moncado loves America and the American Way of Life.
But if America is destroyed and the American Way of Life is also destroyed by the Godless people than the world is no longer fit for man to live in. we will all become like animals fighting, killing and eating one another.
Now let us go back to Jesus Christ.
With the Jews hot on his heel, Jesus Christ did not get very far in his ministry. Three years was long enough, the Jews thought. So, they crucified Him, thinking that the Doctrine that “Man and God are equal” which he had initiated will end there.
They were partly wrong and partly right. The only thing Jesus Christ could do was to strengthen the eleven and promise them that he would come back to finish the work of his Father and that work is for man to believe that “The Father is in me, and I in Him.”Yes, to proclaim to the whole wide world that “I and my Father are one” or “Man and God are equal” is an unhealthy affair. One was already crucified for teaching it.
Today, in the midst of confusion and emergence of conflicting philosophies, General Moncado, the Master of Morality faces the world squarely in the eye without fear as Jesus Christ did many years ago, to proclaim that “Man and God are equal” and that the salvation of mankind is through the Man’s Moral Concept.
“Ye shall know them by their fruits.” Ye shall know HIM by his work. The WORK he is doing for the Father is the key to recognize him today in his present form, not by the color of his skin.
The Unfinished Work of Jesus – The Christ
When Jesus Christ reached his thirtieth birthday, he felt that it was time for him to do the work his Divine Father had commanded him from his heavenly abode.
Since boyhood he had seen man going away from God’s way. He had observed that vices and sins were corrupting man’s physical fitness, causing all kinds of sickness, ills, and incurable diseases. But that was not all the damage done to man’s soul.
His perceptions to divine things were practically worse than ever. His Moral and Spiritual existence were impaired and distorted. Physically speaking, man in these conditions became a useless instrument of God’s wisdom and power here on earth. Therefore Jesus Christ’s Mission was to locate or find man and convince him to return to God’s way. He summarized his Mission in these words, “for the Son of Man is come to save that which was lost.”
After seeing all these things he planned to form an organization whose principal purpose was to “preach the Kingdom of God.” Jesus felt that this was the only way he could induce man to come under God. Consequently, he went from one place to the kingdom of God and his salvation.
JESUS CHRIST IS A GREAT ORGANIZER
He went to the seashore believing that there must be something good for the kingdom of God there. As he approached the seashore he met two fishermen by the names of Peter and Andrew.He said to them, “follow me and I will make you fisher of men.” The two brothers immediately left their nets and followed Him. Further on, he came upon James and John, both were brothers and fishermen by occupation. They were also called and immediately followed Him. Then Jesus saw Matthew, a custom clerk. He, too, left his job and joined Jesus in order to help Him find the sheep that had gone astray.
In a very short time thousands of people followed Him everywhere. They refused to leave Him even in the midst of hunger. Out of His thousands of followers and believers he had chosen only twelve to be His trusted co-workers for the Kingdom of God. Yet, out of those chosen twelve there was one of them who betrayed his Master.
His death on the cross left his work unfinished. “I WILL COME AGAIN. . .” He said, which means that He is coming back to finish the work He had started about two thousand years ago. Let us reason for a moment – if He was given a fair chance to continue His ministry at that time, today we can fairly say that His work is complete and mankind will be enjoying the wonderful life with Him, OUR LORD AND MASTER OF THIS WORLD.
Unfortunately, we are not in the position to enjoy the blessings of His company personally, because by crucifying Jesus, we have transgressed the Law – “Thou shalt not kill.” Under this law we inherited from our predecessors the guilt of a murderer.
Under the philosophy of General Moncado, we have to be relieved of this guilt in order to regain the status of a moral being. The only solution to regain this status is to accept or strictly, literally, divinely follow the Man’s Moral Concept because the working secret of the Man’s Moral Concept is that MAN AND GOD ARE EQUAL. Only through the principles of E.F.B. can we be called righteous or moral people.
As the story goes on, in 1896, there was a man by the name of Doctor Jose Rizal, a Filipino patriot, whose Mission was to convince his fellow countrymen to choose the right government from the wrong one. His country, the Philippines, during that period, was under the Spanish rule. He advocated Independence, the right to rule themselves. He wanted his nation to be equal in power and stations of existence among the nations of the world. This doctrine of equality caused the ruling power of his country to be angry with him.
From this doctrine he received the inspiration to organize the TWELVE FILIPINO ILLUSTRES which was to be the nucleus of a great organization of intellectual men. And this will eventually cause to emerge a government ruled by the doctrine of strict Morality.
But unfortunately, his great noble plan took a sudden stop when he was executed by the ruling Spanish Friars. And this incident reminds me of Jesus Christ who was crucified because the Priests and Church leaders of his time conspired to the effect that He should be destroyed.
If we study very closely the works of these two people they are similarly identical in nature. Their lives ended in an identical manner that of treason. This particular accusation originates from the same source that of conspiracy. The method of killing them was different. One was crucified and the other was shot.
Now, here comes General Hilario Camino Moncado whose Mission is to continue or finish the work that the two men had started which unfortunately they were unable to complete it during their life time. The picture above will tell you the whole story. He not only succeeded but he has accomplished not by miracles but by hard work, sacrifices, and careful planning through Christ principles of meekness and humility.
This is his Mission on earth which is unknown to all people in this world.Even his six million followers all over the world knew very little about it except the 1728 E.F.B. students who are humbly learning to observe the working secret of the Man’s Moral Concept.As far as all E.F.B. students are concerned he has completed the work of Jesus Christ. This is what he came for into this world. He had suffered everything that bars him from reaching his goal.
He said, “MY MISSION IS TO REVIVE, SERVE AND CONVINCE MY FELLOWMEN.THAT IS MY RELIGION. YOU CANNOT SERVE HUMAN BEINGS UNLESS YOU LIVE WISDOM AND MORALITY.”
Today, all E.F.B. students can fairly say that “it is finished.” What Isaiah had predicted 700 years before Jesus Christ was born is now fulfilled to the letter. He said, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and that THE GOVERNMENT SHALL BE UPON HIS SHOULDER:and his name shall be called WONDERFUL, COUNSELLOR, THE ALMIGHTY GOD, THE EVERLASTING FATHER, THE PRINCE OF PEACE.”
One thing very strange though, is why Jesus had chosen only twelve out of his thousands of followers and believers. There must be something in his mind, a very important one which he has reserved for the future generations who believe the doctrine that “MAN AND GOD ARE EQUAL.”
The poem below is written by General Moncado several years ago. He reveals the degrees or steps to be taken to reach man’s goal the everlasting Peace under God. Based on his philosophy these steps are necessary to make the machinery of peace work. From this poem man is inspired to work for the attainment of peace because without peace there is no God, and God is necessary for the salvation of this world when Judgment Day comes. SOCIETY
Without society there is no union; Without union there is no strength;
Without strength there is no power;
Without power there is no beauty;
Without beauty there is no competition;
Without competition there is no work;
Without work there is no happiness;
Without happiness there is no Peace;
Without Peace there is no God.
Moncado – The Living Philosopher of the Far East
The most misunderstood and the most unjustly criticized Filipino is General Hilario Camino Moncado through hearsay, bigotry and prejudice. He is attacked in the newspapers unmercifully.He is crucified on the altar of jealousy.
He has never answered back those unfounded attacks. He suffers in silence. Instead of hating the mud slingers, he tries to help them whenever he has the opportunity to do so. He treats his vilifies and false accusers with kindness and love. He keeps on with his humanitarian work and service unperturbed.
He has the will power and unyielding courage to overcome all obstacles that obstruct his path to success and glory. He is wise as an owl, and is gentle as a dove. He has a brave heart. He is like a mighty rock of pure granite. His work, humble as it seems, stands today like the impregnable Rock of Gibraltar, indestructible and unconquerable.
His accusers have been deceived by perfidious propaganda against him. At last, they have realized their short-sightedness. They have found out that their bitter attacks were untrue and unfounded.
It is inequitable that General Hilario Camino Moncado, one of the framers and signers of the Constitution of the Commonwealth of the Philippines, has been subjected to unfair criticisms. For he is respectable, kind, courteous, sincere, and loyal to God and Country, with an unquenchable thirst for JUSTICE, LIBERTY, EQUALITY, and TRUTH.
In every critical period of our world’s history one rises to unknown height of leadership in wisdom and morality, shining brilliantly on the highest pinnacle of success and glory, despite persecution and untold suffering. It is not the victories on the field of battle – on land, on sea, and in the air where brute force meets barbarian savagery that are to be glorified and exhaulted. The only victory that should be enshrined and adored is the ability to win and conquer the hearts of men of whatever race, color or religion with love and sympathy.
For the last half of a century we have watched the meteoric rise of a young leader who started his life from a humble beginning, whose early boyhood was shrouded with mystery, a profound secret which was beyond human comprehension.He has traveled all over the world seeking incessantly for the fountain-head of truth, justice, wisdom morality and love. He has studied and searched with scholarly diligence in the libraries of the old and the New Worlds. Upon his return to his native land he was honored by the people to serve as Senior Delegate to the Philippine Constitutional Convention in Manila which drafted the Constitution of the Philippines.
This man is none other than General Hilario Camino Moncado, who is known by his brilliant pen and fiery oratory, a man well versed in the social, moral, spiritual, economic and political problems of the world.
This Living Philosopher of the Far East author and lecturer, is a great exponent of obedience to law and order, and has adhered to this to its fullest extent. And in this connection he hold several ranks as peace officer in several cities on the mainland United States.
As The Living Philosopher of the Orient, and Master of Millions of followers stationed all over the world, he conceived a symbolic salute for his followers which composed of three distinct movement as follows: (1) The right hand salute on the forehead. (2) From the forehead the right hand is placed on the left breast over the heart. (3) From over the heart the right had is raised shoulder height to the right side with palm towards the front like taken an oath, then drop the hand by the side in a natural position at attention. The salute signifies this pledge: (1) WITH ALL MY MIND, (2) MY HEART AND MY SOUL (3) BEFORE GOD AND BEFORE THE WORLD, I PLEDGE MY LOYALTY TO THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
Wake Up Humanity! A Warning Message To All Mankind
The picture above is made up of press clippings from local newspapers. From this pictures we are able to see the panoramic events passing in review before the eyes of the world with a warning message to all mankind that JUDGEMENT DAY is near right at your door.
Events like these are happening all over the world today with alarming pace. Nature is very active since the day man discovered the power of the Atom. Volcanos which have been dormant for many years are exploding and erupting their way to life again. Floods, storms, tornados, earthquakes, heat and cold waves occurring everywhere are all making headlines in every capital city of the world and leaving behind them untold wastes and damages of life, property and wealth.
Although World War ll had ceased about ten years ago but there are still many millions of people in Europe, in the Far East and in the Orient who are homeless, hungry, maimed, and ill both in mind and body.
The ugly smoke and twisted steel, and the stumps of bombed buildings are standing and vidsible over the areas visited by the last war, but already rumors of a third world war are circulating around the globe and fear is gripping every human heart of this coming world destruction.
Yes, the world fears the coming of the third world war. If it does come, mankind is to be blamed for it because he willed it to come.
Mankind should fear the coming world catastrophe, the JUYDGEMENT DAY, as promised by our Lord Jesus Christ before he left this world to be with his Father, and there is no amount of human intelligence or power that can stop it or prevent if from destroying this world.
According to the Holy Scriptures before Judgments Day comes upon this earth which Jesus Christ promise to do upon His return, mankind shall be fore-warned and these are the words of the Master as recorded in the Holy Bible: “BUT TAKE YE HEED: BEHOLD I HAVE FORETOLD YOU ALL THINGS. NOW LEARN A PARABLE OF THE FIG TREE: WHEN HER BRANCH IS YET TENDER, AND PUTTETH FORTH LEAVES, YE KNOW THAT SUMMER IS NEAR: SO YE IN LIKE MANNER, WHEN YE SHALL SEE THESE THINGS COME TO PASS, KNOW THAT IT IS NIGHT, EVEN AT THE DOORS. VERILY, I SAY UNTO YOU, THAT THIS GENERATION SHALL NOT PASS, TILL ALL THESE THINGS BE DONE. HEAVEN AND EARTH SHALL PASS AWAY BUT MY WORDS SHALL NOT PASS AWAY.”
When General Moncado arrived in Hawaii on March 15, 1948 from the Philippines, He immediately went to work in His laboratory of thought, the Filipino Federation of America. What He discovered in His Laboratory is reflected in His speech delivered a year after on the occasion honoring the 35th Anniversary as an immigrant to Hawaii.
The following are excerpts from His speech on March 5, 1949.
He said: “The world today is approaching the age of Catastrophe. The year 1948 was year of painful thinking. Because hardship dominates thoughts than having its clear vision. Mother Nature is now very active. It is an erupting volcano that no volcanologist can determine it source of origin nor its peaceful ending. No amount of human intelligence can combat or prevent the power of Mother Nature which now active in this year 1949.”
The power of Mother Nature is working for WORLD DESTRUCTION while on the other hand, the so called Human Intelligence is working for WORLD PEACE. What a contrast! Since Mother Nature is active this year, no amount of activities of human intelligence can surpass or defeat the powert of Mother Nature.”
“But…! There is only one solution to calm down the activity of destruction of Mother Nature. It is to study the meaning of MAN’S MORAL CONCEPT. Man’s Moral Concept is a divine attainment in the world which the almighty God is responsible of the divine action at this time. Since Mother Nature is only the attribute of God’s power it is up to the Mother Nature to uphold the divine wisdom of God. Mon’s Moral Concept is God’s divine power on earth. Therefore, Mother Nature, the attribute of God, will only follow its philosophy of thinking toward Peace over this earth than to destroy human faculties.”
From this speech we learned what Jesus Christ meant when He said: “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels which are in heaven, neither the Son, but the Father.”
Now, the sixty-four dollar question is where is the Father, and how is he going to warn us?
First of all, is this generation worthy to be warned? Is this generation worthy to be saved?
The following will remind each one of us why promise of Judgment is upon this generation.
Mankind must correct his previous mistakes in order to understand his present position.
For our information, according to the record in the old Testament, the sinful error mankind ever committed was the rejection or the refusal to believe the Warning Message as in the case of Noah, who warned the people in his time of the approaching flood. They ignored his warning message. When the flood came about hundred years later, only eight souls were saved. By not believing the words of warning from a drunkard Noah, destruction came upon the unbelievers.
Before Jesus began His ministry there was a man named John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness about making the way straight for our Lord. He said: “I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of our Lord.” Because these words, he was imprisoned and later beheaded because man refused to believe his warning message about the Messiah.
Another sinful error committed by man as recorded in the New Testament was the crucifixion of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Again the people at that time rejected the truth of his teaching that “MAN AND GOD ARE EQUAL or I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE.” Also they refused to accept Him as the prophetic Messiah.
Now, is this generation going to repeat the same mistakes as the others had done? Are we going to ignore the Man’s Moral Concept, the Warning Message of Salvation for all mankind?
WAKE UP HUMANITY! Read your Bible and learn them while there is time left.
Rev. 16: 15 Behold, I COME AS ATHIEF. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he
walk naked, and they see his shame.
Rev. 21: 3 Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his
people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
EQUI FRILI BRIUM is calling you
TO ALL MY DEAR BRETHREN:
Let me address you as my Brethren. I feel very much as brother to you this way. And as brother I could talk to you much freely than if I address you otherwise. As a man I feel that we are all brothers under the law of creation, we belong to one great association of men whose image and likeness is that of the Creator, God of this Universe. In the Holy Bible the Creator said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness:” Under this thought we are all brothers, regardless of color, race or creed.
When you read the tittle above, you will no doubt, wonder who is this man? Humbly, we are very happy today that the time has come to reveal Him and His Mission on this Earth. For many years His work and teachings were confined strictly to members of His organization, the Filipino Federation of America, Incorporated and the Filipino Crusaders World Army, Inc. For teaching or imparting to the members the working secret power of the Man’s Moral Concept, the doctrine that Man and God are equal, they expressed their respect, obedience and love by calling him “Master” or “Maestro.” For this reason, it is only natural for the people who are not within the influence of the Federation to be surprised and critical to see General Moncado being treated by His members not only as greater leader but as a King or God.
On December 27, 1925, at exactly 8:00 P.M. Equi Frili Brium for the first time made Himself known to the Twelve Founders or Organizers of the Filipino Federation of America. Upon knowing and learning His great mission on this earth, together they pledged themselves to help Him inform the world that the time is at hand. As Filipinos they felt that their country men should be informed first of this NEWS. They were very much successful in their mission that on July 1955 there are more than six million of their countrymen all over the world who have received the GOOD NEWS.
On December 27, 1955 we celebrated the 30th anniversary of both the Filipino Federation of America and Equi Frili Brium. Divinely speaking, Equi Frili Brium is the OWNER of the Filipino Federation of America, because He inspired them to organize it.
The 30th anniversary of Equi Frili Brium which falls on December 27, 1955,corresponds to the age of Jesus Christ when He started His ministry. According to the Gospel, he began to preach the Kingdom of God and His doctrine that “I and my Father are ONE” at the age of 30 years.
That year 1955 Equi Frili Brium through Moncado and His Mission Bulletin wishes to make Himself known to the whole world and to all mankind, so, He could reach and preach to them the Man’s Moral Concept, the new doctrine that “Man and God are Equal.” That year the work of the Supreme World Council of E.F.B. Students with headquarters in Hawaii is to clear the Way for HIM. That was a tough job but I believe deeply in my heart that we all can do it, because God-Christ-E.F.B. is always with us. We must clear and make the way straight for E.F.B. and now is the time. For success, every students and disciple of Our Master must observe the Man’s Moral Concept very closely and nothing else because in this doctrine we will find the Way of Equality, the Truth of Fraternity, and the Life of Liberty. This is the doctrine of Light that with it, we shall not walk in darkness. Jesus Christ said, “I am the WAY, the TRUTH, and the LIFE.”
Let me remind you of St. John. When St. John was asked by the Jews, “Who are thou?” He answered, “I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, “Make straight the Way of the LORD, as said the prophet Isaias.’ “Today, the Supreme World Council of E.F.B. Students are in the same position as of St. John about two thousand years ago, crying through the Moncado and His Mission Bulletin that the Man’s Moral Concept must be strictly, literally, divinely followed by all men.
Isaias is a great prophet and this is what he said as recorded in Isaiah 40:3-8. “The VOICE of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the WAY of the LORD, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Every valley shall be made straight, and rough places plain: and the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it. The voice said, Cry. And he said, What shall I cry? All flesh is grass, and all the goodliness thereof is as the flower of the field: The grass withered, the flower faded: because the spirit of the LORD bloweth upon it: surely the people is grass. The grass withered, the flower fadeth: but the word of our God shall stand forever.”
The prophet was alone in his prediction of the coming of Christ. St. John was alone in preparing the way for Our Lord Jesus Christ. But they were successful in their work and the way was made clear and straight for our LORD. Today in His second advent I see no reason that we should not be successful. There are 144 E.F.B. disciples who will be St. John’s place crying ‘Prepare make straight the Way for Equi Frili Brium Christ Our Lord.’
The title, “EQUI FRILI BRIUM is Calling You,” is divine revelation of Christ in his second advent. In the light of the words of the prophet Isaiah that “the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together,” we take this opportunity to reveal a man whose mission in life is to serve humanity. By birth, he is a great politician, statesman, organizer, educator, lawyer, and a great Five-Star General of his own Army, the famous Filipino Crusaders World Army. By nature, he is a Philosopher and a great Prophet chosen by the WILL OF GOD, the Creator, to complete his work which was initiated about two thousand years ago by Jesus, the Son of Joseph and Mary, called the Christ, who was crucified.
The subject of our proclamation is none other than Five-Star General Hilario Camino Moncado, the human mechanism of Equi Frili Brium, Christ in his second advent into this world. As a human mechanism of E. F. B.-Christ he enjoyed the life of being the most misunderstood personality in this whole wide world. This life of misunderstanding impose upon him did not affect nor discourage the spirit of his disciples or students. In Christ was alive such life was also impose upon Him. They even chased him out of the land he loved so very much. When he was yet in his mother’s bosom, the world misunderstood him. When he was about two years old still he was misunderstood. He had to run away to avoid being murdered. When he reached the age of 33, the life of being misunderstood was getting out of control. Because he made the lame walk, the blind see, the sick whole, and brought the dead back to life, he was called the Prince of the devil.
As a growing child, he acquired knowledge of nature and his understanding of life’s problem have stunned many of his elders. At the age of only six years old his Father took him to India for the chief purpose of attending the College of Mystery and Psychic in Calcutta.During this period India was famous and still is for mysterious things. She was called the land of mystery and enchantment and she still holds that title and beauty judging from the number of people attracted to her shores arriving annually from all corners of the world.
Because of young Moncado’s unusual knowledge his father was inspired to send him to that country to study the Universal Mystery of Nature. Young Moncado did not mind this at all, for he believed that he could be more useful there than if he stayed at home. His judgment was correct for in the ensuing years he became the leading student in the College of Mystery.
To enter the College of Mystery, not every aspirant is able to matriculate.Every entrant should reach his sixth birthday before he can be accepted. The course of study runs for eight years, and that every student should secure his degree or degrees before he reached his fourteenth birthday, otherwise he is automatically disqualified as a student.
Young Moncado has the rare distinction of finishing an eight year course in three years. He was graduated with honor at the age of nine. He had obtained the degrees of Doctor of Philosophy of KABALA, (K.Ph.D.), Doctor of Philosophy of Numerology, (N.Ph.D.), and Doctor of Philosophy of Human Nature, (N.H.Ph.D.). Doctor of Philosophy termed KABALA is the highest degree in India. There are millions of people in India who read and speak the Kabalistic language.
General Moncado who organized the Filipino Federation of America on December 27, 1925, opened the College of Sages in Stockton, California, for the chief purpose of teaching the members the principles of Kabala, Numerology and Human Nature. During this period hundreds of members enrolled and were given free lessons on these subjects. A leading student, Lorenzo Delos Reyes, a trusted one whom the Master has given the Key of Authority was in charge of the school.
Many of the members who were enthusiastic and ambitious to learn this kind of knowledge continued their studies; and today they have acquired great understanding of nature and life in general.
Those who believe the wisdom of Kabala, Numerology, and Human Nature, develop a high degree of loyalty and obedience to the organization, to the appointed leaders, and to the Master.
Every member-student has learned how to be clean both in mind and body.The lessons he has absorbed made him a completely new man, a moral being who strictly, literally, divinely followed the moral concept of man by fighting against all forms of vices which are destructive to humanity.
Just yesterday, these members were herds of gamblers, murderers, smokers, drunkards and trouble makers. Now, they are groups of law abiding people. They advocate nothing but peace for humanity. WE AVOID TROUBLE, BUT UPHOLD PEACE, became the battle-cry of the members in their fight for Peace and Order.
Today, General Hilario Camino Moncado, the Living God of millions of his people all over the world, and as commander-in-chief of the Filipino Crusaders World Army, leads his millions of followers to battle against the forces of darkness that strangled the PEACE OF THE WORLD.
Peace is still far away from man’s reach. Sometimes it seems near, friendly, neighborly, but when man gets closer to it she is gone; she disappears like a mirage on a hot desert sand.
To the Kabalist, God is the Owner of Peace. Man must go to Him if he really wants peace. Christ said, “Ask and it shall be given, knock and it shall be opened, seek and ye shall find it.” But the Kabalist saw man knocking at the wrong door, asking the wrong person and looking for it on the wrong place. In that condition man can never find Peace, the kind of peace that will bring happiness to all mankind, that will last forever, that will establish Good Will to all men, regardless of color, race or creed.
God is the Owner of Peace. “God is moral, moral is man, and man is God,” therefore, we can have Peace if man is moral because “by nature, and its divinity, and its creation, man’s moral is God.”
Through the Man’s Moral Concept, the doctrine that Man and God are Equal, the world can have his Peace. The Man’s Moral Concept is the new covenant of Peace between man and God on this earth.
Shortly after he graduated from the school of mystery, one of his Mystic and Psychic Masters traveled with him all over India, China, Japan, Korea, Africa, New Zealand, Borneo, Sumatra, Java, Celebes, Australia and the entire Philippine Archipelago. What he had learned from this travel made his mind wonder about God and all his creations.
One day after his travel while looking at the world from his station in life, his mind wondered why God had given him all these knowledge and trusted him of his infinite wisdom. As he sat in silence, deep into his mind he saw for the first time a secret chamber and as he approached near the door, it voluntarily opened itself.
There in this chamber of his mind the destiny of his life reveals the great Mission that is entrusted to him by the Creator. At this moment he has found the reason why he was spiritually equipped with all the knowledge and wisdom of this world. He had learned that he was chosen by the Almighty to be “THE SERVANT OF HUMANITY.”
When this mental wonderment passes away, he feels that the world needs him.He feels that his life and the wisdom he acquired are not for him alone, but for all humanity. He believes that all these things are gifts entrusted to him by the Owner of this Universe only to be given to all mankind in a form of “The World Servant.”
After God revealed to him his Mission, to learn first hand the condition of the people of the world, he traveled once more to the countries he had visited before including, Alaska, Canada, Hawaii, California, and the United States of America.
Turning to the next chapter of General Moncado’s life as a Philosopher and Moralist, at the age of ten, after he had visited his parents for six months, he returned to India for the important purpose of teaching at the College of Sages in Calcutta which is a preparatory school of the Indian College of Mystery.
Sometime after graduation he wrote a wonderful book entitled, “EQUIFRILIBRICUM,” which means equality, fraternity, and liberty. Later, he was promoted to teach this book to the senior class of the College and his position gave him the unique title of “Supreme Psychic and Mystic Master.” The senior class of the College still uses this book as a text book.
Equifrilibricum is the foundation of a true Democracy in the world.A true Democracy is a form of government of the people, by the people, and for the people. Equifrilibricum is the principle of the American people, by the American people, and for the American people. Without Equifrilibricum there is no United States of America today.
Since General Moncado arrived on the continental United States and because he was guided by the principle of Equifrilibricum, he worked hard to develop a better relationship between Filipinos and Americans. The Filipino Federation of America was brought into being to serve as an effective vehicle to convince the American people as well as his countrymen that they are brothers under the principles of Equifrilibricum. To further convince the American public of his philosophy he vigorously fought for Philippine Independence that must be granted to the Filipino people on July 4th, 1946.
His philosophy won. The Philippines became an Independent Republic exactly on July 4th, 1946.In principle and in freedom, Americans and Filipinos are ONE. . . pursuing for one goal, fighting for one cause, and living under one God. On this day, every year, Filipinos and Americans are united into ONE mind and ONE heart for their love of Freedom.
Under General Moncado’s philosophy, Equifrilibricum is man: man who believes that there is God on this earth.The American people or the Filipino people is that man because they both believe Equifrilibricum which means equality, fraternity and liberty. Because of these principles Patrick Henry, the great American was inspired to speak fearlessly before his compatriots, his glowing, famous everlasting phrase, “Give me Liberty or give me death.”
Man, in the image and likeness of his Creator-God, is willing to die for his principle because his principle is the substance of his Creator, the Almighty.Because of his faith on this substance or principle, the Almighty provides him with unlimited protection, making him ONE and equal with God. “I and my Father are ONE or Man and God are Equal,” when fully realized by man, no one can destroy or overcome him. Because of the principles of Equifrilibricum, our founding fathers were inspired that in our Constitution we find this inspiring phrase . . . that under God men are created equal. . .”
Equifrilibricum has made America a world power. As a world power, she is educating the world to learn the Man’s Moral Concept because the Man’s Moral Concept is Christ’s Mission.Equifrilibricum loves and guides America because Christ is in America today. America today is God’s mechanism in His Wisdom because “America saves and serves Humanity!”
The quotation above is the title of a timely message delivered on the occasion of the 26th Anniversary of the Filipino Federation of America by General Hilario Camino Moncado, a great Philosopher and Moralist, the only living prophet moved by the wisdom of God in our century. . . the 20th century.
The picture above is the cover of the pamphlet “Moncado and his Mission” made by the Editor of the American Globe, Wm. J. Schaefle in 1928. This intelligent man through his insight must have seen something as Moncado revealed his Mission to him that in this illustration it conveys the meaning of a great catastrophic fire hovering over our nation. Also in this illustration we find the Philippine flag significantly flying on the mast of the capitol building as if she is defiantly ready to challenge Satan and his fire of destruction. I wonder if the Editor through this illustration of his is warning the leaders of Our America of the coming destruction by the fire over our nation.
What does Mr. Editor means by putting the Philippine Flag over the capitol building? I might be wrong but I have deep faith in my interpretation of this illustration; that once this flag is hauled away from the land he loved and considered his “human mechanism,” it will be the beginning of human suffering and World Catastrophe.
We hope that this flag will not be hauled away from that mast so she can help check Satan’s plan to destroy American Way of Life. His philosophy lives with America because he loves America.
Since the Filipino Federation of America was founded, General Moncado’s philosophy of life grew together with the Federation. Every obstacle preventing the growth of his organization was removed not by force but in a Moncadian Way, the Christ way. Jesus Christ said in Matthew, 5:26, “Agree with thine adversary quickly; whiles thou art in the way with him.” Job, the righteous man of the old, taught his people the best way to remove obstacle or adversary: he said, “Acquaint now thyself with him, and be at peace: thereby good shall come unto thee.” This is the Moncadian way.
Most of his life he has lived in the United States of America. He made it his career to work to better the relationship between Filipinos and Americans, and to cement the existing friendship and Good Will among the people of his country and the people of the United States of America.
From the mere beginning up to this day, General Moncado has never answered back his attackers, his adversary; in fact, he helped them whenever it is possible. We can never find any man like him in this whole wide world practicing the Christ principle with his fellowmen.
There is no doubt that he is well known all over the world as a Politician, Statesman, Organizer, Educator, Lawyer, and a great Five-Star General. But as a Philosopher and a Prophet, the world knows very little about it. Practically, only his followers and members of his famous organizations, the Filipino Federation of America, Incorporated, and the Filipino Crusaders World Army understand his philosophy and believe his doctrine that man and God are equal.
His philosophy contradicts none of the existing philosophies, beliefs or doctrines. In fact, they benefit from his thought because it arouse man’s belief of his God, and it opens the way for his inner self to attain greater moral heights because morality is God’s way to attain everlasting life here on earth.
Equi Frili Brium’s purpose is to serve humanity. It is the Will of God his Father. He summarized his work with these words, “Humanity be served is My Father’s Supreme Labor.”
Jesus Christ said according to the four Gospel- “I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not … this work of God, that ye believe on him whom He hath sent…I am not come of myself, but he that sent me is true whom ye know not…I am not alone, but I and the Father that sent me… I am one that bear witness of myself, and the Father that sent me beareth witness of me.” Today, in the light of our modern way of thinking based on the philosophy that man and God are equal these words of our Lord mean “Humanity be served is my Father’s Supreme Labor.”
Before we go deeper into his philosophy let me tell you something about his work as a Philosopher, and what he accomplished as a Prophet. As a Philosopher he had created a new moral concept for man to abide in this world because the old one is no longer able to keep pace with the rapid increase of man’s knowledge. As a Prophet he brings to our remembrance the things Jesus had said about two thousand years ago. In order to be happy to live with our neighbors. Jesus Christ said, “Love thy neighbors as thyself.” To bring Christ back into our memory, General Moncado said in the Man’s Moral Concept, “Life is but service and suffering for the love of humanity.
To understand him as a Philosopher and a Prophet I shall take you first to the day he was born.
GENERAL HILARIO CAMINO MONCADO was born in Pondol, a little village in a small town called Balamban on the island of Cebu, Philippines. He was born on November 4th, 1898, about two years after Doctor Jose Rizal, the Filipino Martyr was executed in Manila, Philippines.
Several legends connected with his birth were told by many of his friends and neighbors, and relatives who knew his parents well. When this article was written, some of them were still living. They accounted him as a gifted child who possesses certain unusual characteristics, not physically but intellectually. This intellectual power is born with him and it can never be separated from his person. In all his activities, this intellectual power always manifest in his favor, and today those who are closely associated with him cannot help but notice these manifestations. People who understand very little about these things usually marvel and call them miracles; call them whatever you may, but I think that there is something in this man that the people in this world, Christians or gentiles are entitled to know these things. That is one reason why MONCADO AND HIS MISSION is born today.
NEWS: 2nd ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
Members of the Liberal Spiritual Division of the Filipino Federation of America, Incorporated, will be celebrating the 2nd Anniversary of the Moncado and His Mission at their headquarters, Kaunakakai, Molokai, on August 21, 1955.

“MONCADO GOOD WILL OPEN” and its blessings
Ever since its foundation in 1925, the Filipino Federation of America has had for an objective the development of the body as well as that of the mind and of the spirit. The Federation has encouraged its members in every way to participate in healthful sports.
In the summer of 1948, the Federation demonstrated that golf had become its major and favorite sport. The City of Stockton, California, United States of America, saw for the first time a demonstration of the wonders and beauty of the Man’s Moral Concept and the working secret of the doctrine that Man and God are Equal in the form of General Moncado Good Will Open. It was the greatest sporting spectacle ever sponsored by the Federation. For it was the first time in the name of golf that Filipinos and Americans alike played together enjoying the blessings of friendship and Good Will among themselves. The Open has successfully achieved its purpose, its aim and its goal.Many prominent American golfers, pros and amateurs, have participated in this eventful enterprises. In this event with the blessings of the Man’s Moral Concept, we are able to see both Filipinos and Americans enjoying the rare opportunities to lean to be happy to play, as well as to work and live as good neighbors. This is the Man’s Moral Concept working to make all men happy under God.
No other Filipino leader in America or in the world is doing something like this to his people except General Moncado. In fact no man in the whole world now living is teaching the Doctrine that Man and God are Equal except General Moncado. Now that he is in Mexico, his followers who are living in Hawaii and the Philippines have no idea what the Master is planning to do with the GOOD WILL OPEN named after him. We pray and hope that the General Moncado Good Will Open will continue to exist on American soil so that the chain of wonderful friendship and brotherly love, and the good will created by this enterprise will not be broken but continue to exist forever without end.
You can see from the pictures on this page how handsome those congratulatory smiles are shared by both men. On the other pictures you will also see those beautiful happy expressions on their faces seldom seen on the conference table in the United Nation. These are the blessings of the Man’s Moral Concept the wonderful doctrine that Man and God are Equal.
Without Peace There Is No God
Before the United States of America committed herself into the great global War of 1941, General Moncado made a proposal to all the leaders of the world including Hitler and Mussolini that a Peace Conference is a necessity instead of preparing for War. As the Supreme President of the Filipino World Federation and a Philosopher of great repute he proposed that the most logical site to have such a conference is the beautiful Honolulu, Hawaii. He believes that the peaceful atmosphere surrounding the city of Honolulu and the entire Hawaiian archipelago will greatly aid the minds of these leaders in conference to settle their differences through peaceful means.
Geographically, the Hawaiian Islands as a whole is the center of the great Pacific basin. Also the name Pacific signifies Peace. Therefore, he thought that Hawaiian is the most interesting and logical area on the globe for all the leaders of the world to meet and talk about Peace instead of arming for war.
This thought still remains in the heart of General Moncado today, hoping that someday the leaders of the world would realize the value of his proposal.For the sake of Peace and to avert another global catastrophe, he urges all nations to review the value of such a conference.
The city of Honolulu is known as the melting pot of the Pacific, and it is well represented by peoples of different races, colors and creeds.General Moncado still believes that the City of Honolulu is able to contribute to the construction of Peace of the world.
Local and national leaders of our country at that time highly endorsed the Moncadian proposal. They were happy that someone had thought of such a plan. They felt that the Hawaiian atmosphere where the trade winds blow, the coco palms waving so ever softly in the air, and the sweet native music of Aloha is the logical surrounding needed to forget about war.
But somehow this great plan did not materialize for in the minds and hearts of men war was the only solution they have seen to solve the ills of the world.As one innocent by-stander said, “How could man think of Peace when he is completely surrounded by the implements of War.”
War came and World War II was born. War made his grand entrance with the participation of one of the greatest and most powerful nations in the world. . . the United States of America.She may have lost an argument, but history proves that she had never lost a fight or a war. God was with America. General Moncado was also with America. Moncado was trapped, caught and killed by the enemies because he was for America. But today he is very much alive knocking at the door of Congress requesting his intentions to become an American Citizen.
All these are
THE BEGINNING OF SORROWS
Until mankind accepts the MAN’S MORAL CONCEPT and recognizes the doctrine that Man and God are Equal, he can never reach the summit of his dream, the Peace on Earth and Good Will to all Men. Peace will remain a dream for centuries more if man refuses to acknowledge this doctrine. This doctrine is a divine revelation of God Christ in his second appearance.
We all know from the records that Christ ascended to his Father in heaven after spending forty nights and forty days with his disciples and friends here on this earth. He has been absent for almost two thousand years now. His absence is like the absence of a Father who traveled to another country far away and promised his children that he will return as soon as possible. He promised to those who can wait for his return, life everlasting.
It is only natural for a Father who returns from his travel to bring with him gifts for his children. This GIFT is the MAN’S MORAL CONCEPT. It is the doctrine of life, peace and happiness, a gift from the Father above for all mankind.
If the child refuses to accept this gift which is of course the child’s privilege to refuse, then these words of Jesus Christ as recorded in Matthew 11:24 will be fulfilled. God said, “But I say unto you, That it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of Judgment, than for thee.” From these words we learn that because of man’s stubbornness God is hurt and angry. He has no alternative, but to permit destruction to come upon this world and let the unbelievers suffer the consequences.
We learned from the great flood which came upon this earth once upon a time, that only those who were taken into the Ark were saved. Not very many of them. The correct number was only eight human beings and all belonged to Noah’s family.Imagine, majority on the passenger’s list were animals. More animals were saved than human beings.
When Judgment Day comes how many are going to be spared this time?Revelation points out that only those who receive the seal of the Father IN their foreheads shall be saved. It means that those who believe the Man’s Moral Concept will receive the SEAL of the Father IN their foreheads, according to Revelation 7:3. And those who have the seal of God IN their foreheads, according to Revelation 9:1-4, “should not be hurt” when Judgment comes.
The pictures on the front page depict an important message we wish to convey to all mankind. This of course is not of our own, but based on the Master’s words as recorded in Matthew 24:7-8. He said, “For nations shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. All these are the beginning of sorrows.”
Now, it is up to mankind. If he wishes to fulfill this prophecy, then let him DECLARE WAR, so nation shall rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.
Mankind has multiple sufferings to come upon him if he decides to make war.War is destruction and this type of destruction brings many untold sufferings to humanity. Man’s progress will cease and his civilization will crumble to dust; mankind will be destroyed. With the discovery of the Atom this world is no longer the beautiful garden of the living but soon within this period of history it will be called the home of the dead.
But under this heap of dust and ashes, mountains of lava made by the Volcanos and debris left by the earthquakes, where a great human civilization once stood, a new civilization, a new doctrine and a new man will emerge created by the WILL of God and not by his hands as the first man was created.This civilization will rule the world through the principles of Wisdom and Morality. This is the new heaven and the new earth because the old heaven and the old earth had passed away. As recorded in Revelation 21:1, John said, “And I saw a New Heaven and a New Earth:for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away, and there was no more sea.”
What John saw in his vision was the confirmation of the prophecy predicted by Isaiah about 700 years before Jesus was born. In Isaiah 59:20, he said, “But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no Peace, saith my God, to the wicked.”
Because these people are created by the will of God and no by his hands as the first man was created, their human instinct will be removed and replaces with moral instinct. Because these people strictly, literally, divinely follow the Man’s Moral Concept, and they firmly believe the doctrine that Man and God are Equal, they are no longer human beings but moral beings.
Human beings are selfish, self-centered, stubborn, disobedient and rebellious against God. These are the characteristics that made man wicked before the eyes of God. Once a great poet caught man’s selfish actions, and expressed his opinion by saying, “To err is human, to forgive is divine.”To forgive is morality in action.Because moral beings are not created by the hands of the creator but by his WILL through the Man’s Moral Concept, they do not err because their bodies are the tabernacle of God. They are the fulfillment of the prophecy in Revelation 21:3.
Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.”
YOU, members of this noble organization, wherever you are, please observe and study the following message by our General Hilario Camino Moncado, Founder and Life President of the Filipino Federation of America Incorporated, which was delivered on the occasion of the 29th anniversary of the founding of this great organization, December 27, 1954.
To All Members Of The Filipino Federation of America In The World:
This day, December 27, 1954, the twenty-ninth anniversary marks the achievements of the great spiritual work of the Filipino Federation of America after so many years of struggle since its founding.
It is now being realized what the Filipino Federation of America means to the members and to the people of the world. The year 1954 is a year of steadfast thinking for all human existence.The curtain is now open during this December 27, 1954, anniversary observation.
We shall also observe on December 27, 1955, a three-decade steadfast learning of divine thinking. In the year 1955, Mother Nature – the instrument of Almighty God, the Creator – will be so powerful that no human intelligence can contradict it. It will be too late to realize how much material progress has been achieved by human wisdom. Mankind has neglected to observe divinely the working secrets of the doctrine of Man’s Moral Concept.
If only this Concept was realized during the period from December 27, 1925 up to December 27, 1955, Our Mother Nature, the servant of the Creator, would guide us to Destiny – to the Golden Chair of Our Almighty God. Each Man’s Soul should be given such Divine Power by the Almighty God, but because of Man’s Moral Concept – that Man and God are Equal – all material progress of the present formula of our advanced civilization would be destroyed through the hands of Mother Nature by the order of Our Master, Our Creator.”
He ended his message with a prayer releasing his person the great responsibility which was placed upon him by the Almighty God, the Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ. And now, it is up to the Father and his Son Christ that is in him.
He prayed, “May Almighty God, the Father of Our Lord Jesus Christ, who has given you a new life by water and the Holy Ghost and has granted you remission of all sins, anoint you with the Chrism of salvation in the same Christ Jesus Our Lord, unto life everlasting. Amen.”
Reading this prayer it comes into view in my mind a picture which reminds me of our Lord Jesus Christ kneeling before a huge rock with his face looking into the infinite sky in a prayer to his Father in the last hour of his tribulations. He said, “Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine be done.”
In this issue permit me to remind all E.F.B. Students who are stationed in different corners of the world with the words of Jesus Christ. He said, “WATCH AND PRAY,” for we know not what hour MOTHER NATURE will come upon us to destroy this wicked World. Watch and pray always to God Christ and abide always with his New Doctrine, the Man’s Moral Concept, that Man and God are Equal.The time has come that we must all remain faithful to Our Master, Our Creator in his tribulations.
During the darkest hour of the Japanese occupation in the Second World War, General Moncado defended with his life the name of America and Democracy in his native land. Before World War II, he personally attacked Japan’s Imperialistic Movement in the East by calling Japan the “Monster of the Pacific.” He warned the people of the East, especially the 18,000,000 Filipinos, to cast their lot with America in time of crisis. Because, he said, “America is God’s human mechanism in his wisdom, because America saves and serves humanity.” Because of these commitments he was arrested by the Japanese forces as soon as they got into Manila proper. They imprisoned and tortured him to the point of death.
After the War he came to the United States of America, not to claim any personal reward, but only to be near America which he loves very much, the America he defended with his life for three agonizing years. Today he is an unwanted stranger in the United States, not as a criminal but as a man who defended her. Man’s intelligence cannot scope the wisdom of this action, but God’s will.
The Filipino people belong to the Malay Race or brown race. General Moncado proudly belongs to that Race, and the organization he founded, the Filipino Federation of America, also belong to the Malay Race or the brown race of little people.
In the beginning, the Philippine Islands were settled by many different Malay tribes and tribal ways of thinking, tribal systems of living and working were closely observed by them. Briefly, when the Spaniards came to the islands and eventually settled to own and develop the island riches, the boundaries existing between each tribe gradually disappeared from the horizon of their tribal concept of living. They were now in favor of collective Unity because they learned that in Unity there is strength, and strength is what they need against the Spanish tyrannical rule.
The martyrdom of Jose Rizal was the product of Spanish cruelty and oppression against the native. One of his famous and celebrated saying is “Unity of purpose is certainty of success.” For more than three hundred years of Spanish oppression, the Filipinos learned the value and important of Unity.
When the Americans came into the island after the Spanish tyrants, the Filipino people were already united. Unity became the key word in every Filipino gathering. Speeches, addresses, orations were all tuned in to the essence of the word Unity.
Under the American rule, the understanding of Unity among the Filipino people was developed to a much higher degree when the Americans promised them of eventual grant of Independence. During that period, to every Filipino, Independence meant “United of purpose is certainty of success.”
This is where General Moncado, Unity meant organization. So, in 1925, the Filipino Federation of America was born. A great Filipino organization was born on the laps of twelve members with General Moncado the 13th as their head.
THE MESSAGES …
TO THE SEVEN GREAT CHURCHES OF CHRISTENDOM
At the turn of the first century A.D. Jesus Christ discovered that Satan through his disguise was admitted as a registered member of the Order of the Seven Great Churches of Christendom in Asia. This biblical fact is recorded in Revelation Chapter 1, 2, and 3. Biblically, these churches were founded by the original apostles.
With Satan as a member of the churches there is no doubt that his doctrine of lies and confusion which is the foundation of his way of life here on earth will be observed as part of the churches’ directives. In our belief Satan is known as the Father and inventor of every form of vices, evils and wicked things. Every conceivable work of darkness belongs to him and the world is full of it.
Upon knowing the Devil has become a regular member of the churches, God was very angry and was morally depressed and ill-pleased of the whole situation. He foresaw the approaching catastrophe of his doctrine of morality and the downfall of the churches. According to Revelation. Our Lord issued an instructive warning to the churches to save them from Satan’s grip. Through the wisdom of his Christhood on earth, God revealed to his obedient servant, Saint John the Divine, his plans of preventing the occurrence of this moral catastrophe. He revealed to this servant when and how this calamity will come upon this world. He also made it clear that it will be in effect upon his return. This event will be the sign that he is at the door. It will be the fulfillment of his promise-“I will come again.”
First, Our Lord commanded Saint John saying, “what thou seest write in a book, and send it unto the Seven Churches which are in Asia . . . write the things which thou hast seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter . . . (Rev. 1: 11 and :19) From this prophetic command, the last book of the New Testament entitled THE REVELATION of Saint John the Divine was written. The prophecy is this book opens the gate of our understanding of His promise.
The following messages were prophetically addressed to the seven great churches of Christ. Theywere believed to be the foundation of all the existing churches of Christianity today. These messages served as a timely warning to all the present churches who have failed to establish the true doctrine of God on this earth.
To the Church in Ephesus, probably the first Christian congregation in history, this message was sent to serve as a warning and as an instruction. Christ said, “I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: And has borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast labored, and hast not fainted. Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and Repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.”
Now listen to the message to the Church in Smyrna, Christ said to this Church, “I know thy works, and tribulation; and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.”
Here is the message to the Church in Pergamos, Christ said, I know thy works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is:and thou holdest fast my name, and has not denied my faith… but I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes, which thing I hate, Repent; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth.”
And here is the message to the Church in Thyatira. Christ Our Lord said, “I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts.”
The following are the messages to the Churches in Sardis, Philadelphia, and Laodicea.
To Sardis, Christ said, I know thy works, that thou hast a name that thou livest, and art dead. Be watchful, and strengthen the things which remain, that are ready to die; for I have not found thy works perfect before God.”
To Philadelphia, He said, “I know thy works; behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but to lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth.”
To the Church in Laodicea, Christ said, “I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot I will spue thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked: I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and while rainment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.”
From these messages which were addressed to these Churches, we saw and learned how Satan and his henchmen disguised themselves as apostles and Jews so they will be accepted into the arms of the churches. At that time only Christ Knew who up to. During that period, only God in His Christhood knew and understood why Satan wanted to become an apostle of the religion who was named after the man whom he and his henchmen had crucified.
The foregoing messages were intended by God as warning not only to the apostle of the churches but also to each individual saint who has worked and labored day and night for Christ. These faithful saints or followers of the Master at that time were God’s human mechanism in His wisdom. These faithfuls were the first Christians and without them there would be no Christianity in the world today.
These saints of the churches worked very hard to make God’s name known the world over. They have accepted the challenge and have faced Satan with service, faith, poverty and hard work. God knows it too, when He said, “I know thy works and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and tribulation and poverty. . . “
Later when Satan became the head of all the churches, he made it sure that nothing goes to God but all to himself. He made it sure that the fruits of their faith and service goes to him and to Our Lord. In other words, he gathers all the fruits of their faith and labour, and with them made himself fat and rich. Now take a look at the churches. The man who is sitting on the throne, is he Our Lord the Christ? No. According to Revelation he is Satan posing as an apostle or as a Christian. God said, “I know thy blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.” In other words, Satan owns and directs all the churches of Christendom even up to this day. He taught these churches to follow his ways and used them as his headquarters of his expanding Satanic enterprises. What are his enterprises? What is the principal product he sells to humanity? There is only one kind of product, and that is vice. Vice is a form of evil, and evil is against God. God is also against all forms of vices or any form of immoral activities; therefore, under the doctrine that Man and God are equal, every man should make an effort to fight vices, or any form of immorality including communism.
General Moncado, the Master of Morality, said that God in man is moral, and the moral of a man is against all earthly vices because all earthly vices are destructive to man’s physical fitness. Also the moral a man is against any form of activity leading to the destruction of the equality of man.
Vices are the evils of our twentieth century civilization; so is communism the evil of our Way of Life, the American Way of Life. They are invented by Satan the man who crucified Jesus, the prophetic Christ. Vices were created by the devil only to discredit the work of God and to destroy his name here on earth. Vices are the only products Satan is able to make here on earth because he is against Morality and “Man’s Morality emanates from God.” We must also remember, based on the doctrine of E.F.B. that God alone in all His power cannot destroy these vices nor can He alone fight the headman and his evil organization here on earth. He needs every man regardless of color to work together with Him here on earth in order to dethrone Satan the Churches and to destroy his works of darkness forever, which had infected our civilization today.
According to the doctrine of General Moncado, “without man on earth there is no God on earth.” Therefore, God wants all men on this earth to be with Him; to be on His side, and to fight together with Him against all forms of vices in this world, including the evils of communism.
One may ask, “How can the churches today save themselves from the coming Judgment or punishment?” There is only one way, and the way is very difficult if we choose as our guide the man who is now sitting on the throne of Christ in our churches. The way is easy if E.F.B. the true Christ is the guide. The way which the Biblical Christ showed us is repentance. In Revelation chapters 2 and 3, the true Christ said to the churches of Christendom, “Repent …or else… I will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.”
This command to Repent is not the old biblical repentance. Based on General Moncado’s New doctrine of morality repentance means to strictly, literally, divinely follow and observe the moral concept of man. This is repentance under the Law of the promise. Repentance under this law means “sin no more.” It is widely understood that the wages of sin is death. The wages of “sin no more” is life, and life is the doctrine of God.
The doctrine of life is the “Man’s Moral Concept.” The Man’s Moral Concept unites man and God as one. It is the new interpretation of “I and My Father are One.” Therefore, this doctrine is the fulfillment of the promise of Christ to those who are faithful to the end. He said, “To him that overcometh will I give to eat the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone; and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it . . . “Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and the name of the city of my God which is the New Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name . . . He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he will be my son.” Rev. 2: 17; 3: 12; 21: 7.
The moral concept of man is the only doctrine that will destroy Satan and evil works here on earth. The Man’s Moral Concept has power to unseat, or dethrone the devil who is now sitting pretty on the throne of our churches, in our government, and in our way of life, the American Way of Life. He disguises himself as an apostle of our churches, also as a leading patriot and defender of freedom and the American Way of Life. But inwardly his principal aim is to destroy America first and everything she stands for because America is God’s human mechanism in His wisdom. When this is done the world is completely in the hands of Satan.
Because of General Moncado’s love for America and the American Way of Life, He has left His doctrine of Life to His E.F.B. members instructing them to keep it by strictly, literally, divinely follow the Man’s Moral Concept. He said, “this is the way to fight communism.” Amen
SATAN FOUND HIS WAY INTO THE CHURCHES
In Revelation Saint John mentioned the seven great churches of Christianity which were founded by the apostles before the close of the First Century A. D. In Charter 2 of this book, God Christ revealed that He was not satisfied with the works and conducts of all the existing churches of Christendom. He was displeased and disappointed because they have left his most important doctrine of the Way, the Truth, and the Life of God here on earth.
The first church mentioned here was the church of Ephesus. Perhaps, it was founded by Saint Paul who visited this great eastern metropolis of the ancient world several times. The city in Saint Paul’s time was located in the Asia Minor. At that time there was a great multitude of converts, believers and followers of our Lord Jesus Christ. God Christ, knowing their mistakes and evildoings, warned them through Saint John the Divine. Saint John, a very faithful servant of God Christ at that period, received a vision containing great prophetic messages for all the churches. Through this vision, he was instructed to send the messages to the seven great Churches of Asia.
The message to the church of Ephesus was as follows: “I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostle, and are not, and hast found them liars. And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name’s sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted. Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left the first love. Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.”
It was very clear that from this vision, the big liars and the false apostles trained by Satan himself were already on the wheel of the Church of Ephesus. It was also very clear that these liars and false apostles were directing and running the affairs of the churches into Satan’s way and not into the ways of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Christ knows that they were big liars because they were teaching the wrong doctrine. They were the false teachers or prophets because the original doctrine he had left to the apostles was not taught nor was it made known to their followers. In other words, Satan, the father of all liars and false prophets, gained entrance into the Church of Ephesus. In this church, Satan taught the believers to follow his own interpretation of the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
Today, we are able to see these falsities moving, living, surrounding, and influencing the faith of all believers of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Saint John received these messages from God Christ which were intended for the people who belonged to this particular Church of Ephesus. These believers of Our Lord have left the so-called “first love and first works.” If they do not remember where they have fallen, as the message said, and that if they do not repent, the position of their Church will removed from the order of His churches. Now, the question is, Did the leaders or apostle of this particular Church of Ephesus corrected their mistakes or repented as they were told? I do not think so. Because if they did, the world today would be enjoying the blessings of the first love and the first works which the Church had failed to observe in the beginning.
So, upon His return to this earth, Jesus Christ has reasons to establish churches under His new name to replace those which are now under the influence of Satan. Under the regime of E.F.B. all things have been restored. Today, this so-called “first love and first works,” which was left, lost, and forgotten for the past nineteen hundred years, has now found its way deeper into the hearts of its believers through the blessings of the Man’s Moral Concept His new doctrine that Man and God are equal.
Man and His Toy…The Atom
Man had created a Frankenstein Monster of destruction when he discovered the ATOM. Since that the day he has been playing with it like a little child playing with his toy.What will become of man and his civilization if he continuous to disregard the danger of this monster.
Nobody really knows. But the following thoughts expressed by authoritative people prove convincingly – that the end of the world is in that Atom.
Listen . . . This authority said, “Man’s greatest fears today, of course, lie in the realm of the atom. Indeed, those who know the enormous potentialities of this new power have had not a moment’s peace since the first atomic bomb was detonated in New Mexico. Already scientists have announced that the type of bomb dropped on Hiroshima is obsolete, that weapons ten times as powerful are in production; and that these in turn will soon be outmoded by others a thousand times more destructive.”
Another man, who played an important part in the development of the atomic bomb, sums up his feelings by saying, “It has been repeatedly stated that future bombs may easily surpass those used in the last war by a factor of a thousand. I share this belief. One consequence of such bigger bombs would be that instead of three or four square miles, three or four hundred square miles might be devastated at a single blow.But such bigger bombs may prove to be even more dangerous in an indirect way …” Still another man with authority of equal importance re-echoed his belief something like this, “If the activity liberated at Bikini were multiplied by a factor of 100,000 or 1,000,000, and if it were to be released off our Pacific Coast, the whole United States would be endangered.” “This is much more than a fantastic possibility. If such great quantities of activity should become available, an enemy could make life hard or even impossible for us without delivering a single bomb into our territory.”
Another man, whose knowledge of radio-active chemical is well respected, describes what he thinks would happen to our cities if “two atomic bombs were dropped in the water on either side of the Statue of Liberty, and a nice upriver wind, could turn the whole of Manhattan into a ghost town for fifty to one hundred years. Four or five bombs dropped along the water at Chicago would put out Chicago and make all the Great Lakes untenable. The first bomb would seek these watery targets, and would detonate just below the surface, sending up a monstrous cloud of water, spray, and mist. Blown by the wind, the mist loaded with deadly radioactive chemicals, would drop on the near-by city.”
“You would have to evacuate that city within one or two hours. Maybe in a month or two, you could come back and visit it for a very short time, but then you would have to leave again. But that would be only the beginning of the story, for that poisonous mist would drop on reservoirs and near-by farm lands. By the following spring there would be radio-activity in all your drinking water, your milk, and your crops. But that warring nations would not be the only ones to suffer. The bombs set off by both sides would send great masses of radioactive chemicals high into the stratosphere … so high that they would not come down with the next rain.”
“They would come down gradually, until every human being, every animal, every insect, every plant would probably be destroyed or sterilized.”
Still another who is an expert on radio-activity and for several years has given special study to the effect of the two atomic explosions in Japan said that, “a foodless world could result from plant sterility caused by atomic bomb explosions.” He further said, “Not only would existing crops be wiped out if radio-activity of the particles was sufficiently intense, but succeeding crops would be affected.”
Many of our intellectuals today expressed their belief that “the radio-active forces mentioned above are quite capable of causing the END OF OUR CIVILIZATION.”
No one who has studied the effects of the atomic blasts at Bikini, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki will consider the foregoing a remote possibility. The fact is that man, in his zeal for knowledge and his lust for power, has stumbled upon a way by which he can destroy himself and his civilization. He has reached out his hand and touched the basic secret of the Universe, and has discovered that without the wisdom of OMNISCENCE to control it, it is a deadly secret.
This monster of destruction was born in the midst of a great struggle for power and superiority between two opposing political belief in the form of World War II.
In the beginning man felt very proud and joyful to have owned this power.But today, man realizes the danger of having this monster around his backyard. But what can man do now? A great question appears in the horizon of his mind…CAN MAN TAME THE ATOM? The answer is positively yes. Man can tame the atom provided he is MORAL, because Moral is God and God is man. But if he does not accept the Man’s Moral Concept, the new doctrine that MAN AND GOD ARE EQUAL, then this Frankenstein Monster of destruction will continue to increase in power until man is unable to control the Monster he had created.
GOD’S INSTITUTION WITHIN THIS NOBLE ORGANIZATION
The Filipino Federation of America is well known in the world today as a semi-religious, fraternal, non-profit organization. When this great body of patriotic Filipinos was young people of all classes and walks of life, especially their fellow countrymen, while thinking aloud, passed judgment that the Federation is but a political organization and the President is politically inspired. Those who are very critical about the movement believe in many other ways. Today, if we add their baseless criticism together, including their unwise attacks and suspicions they amount to nothing but embarrassment and disgrace on the part of the critics and attackers. Why?
For thirty years, no one among them ever did think that the Filipino Federation of America is an institution all by itself. They never did think that within this noble organization, there is a great Institution of learning the way of Christ, the way of God here on Earth through wisdom and morality. No institution of this kind ever existed in the pass nor in the present civilization except this one. There is only one course of study in the curriculum and that is MORALITY. Morality is the essence of man’s search for God and his desire to see Him.
To have a better look into the meaning of Morality, General Moncado said: “Morality is man’s divine power to achieve the great life on earth. Man is God’s instrument to perpetuate that great life, which He, in His infinite wisdom, has made available to all mortals who desire to make use of that divine power.
“Man’s morality emanates from God. It validates man’s claim to his creation in God’s image. It enables him to live in the way of God, which is the great life.
“Without morality, man cannot attain the great life, however vast his worldly successes and worldly glories may be. With it, man achieves his purpose in life, however poor he may be in worldly goods and worldly wisdom. With it, he has all the material to fashion for himself the great life that brings everlasting happiness and eternal peace on earth and beyond.
“Morality embraces all the virtues which help to make but one race in the world, the human race. It includes all the qualities that bring all men together into one brotherhood under God. It comprises man’s love for his fellow-man.
“Morality is but unceasing service to humanity. Man’s deeds in that service are divine. His battles against the world’s vices, evils and sins will come under God’s guidance and will serve humanity.
“Morality is the only key that will open the gate to the great life. It is God’s way to the realization of the divine hope of peace on earth, goodwill to all men.”
If you examine the By-Laws of the Filipino Federation of America, Incorporated, you will find the requirement of a true matriculate member. In Article 7, Section 6, it is stated that “In order to become a matriculate member or sub-matriculate member, he shall show to the organization that he upholds the highest standard of morality. He must keep away from dancing, drinking with alcoholic drink, gambling, smoking, pool halls, strikes, violence, resistance and all things that are destructive to humanity. But he must advocate from time to time world peace for Humanity.”
When a man wishes to join the Federation as a matriculate, his first lesson is to quit or avoid the characters mentioned in Article 7, Section6 of the By-Laws, and above all he must keep away from participating in any communistic activity in the community where he resides.
The most difficult work for any man to undertake is to convince his fellow beings to follow the way of God Christ. Prophets moved by the wisdom of the creator through the Holy Spirit from Moses time up to the beginning of the Christian era were tortured, suffered, and killed.
Confucius, the greatest moral teacher of his period, which today has influenced the greater part of the western civilization, never in his life-time conceived the highest morality that Man and God are Equal. Jesus was the only man ever to conceive that He, as a man, is equal to the Creator God, His Father, Jesus became the human mechanism of Christ, the Son of God. But man in his rebellious attitude destroyed his only chance to know God or to see Him face to face.
One day before His crucifixion, Philip one of His disciples asked Jesus that he wish to see the Father. Jesus answered him, “Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father, and how sayest thou then . . . Shew us the Father?”
FIGHTING COMMUNISM through GOLFING
General Moncado is a philosopher and also greatest Filipino golfer in the world. He believes that communism is everywhere and urges all his followers to be always on the alert. He reminds them that even in golfing there is communism. “A slice ball,” the Master said, “or a hook ball is communist. A straight ball is the American Way of Life.” So, he tells every member-golfer to always make a straight ball because that is the American Way of Life.
By the way, about three months ago on the occasion of his 56th birthday on November 4, 1954, he dramatically announced to the Golf World his decision to become a professional golfer. That calls for a celebration. Every Filipino, golfer or non-golfer should be proud and happy that one of their countrymen who is well known all over the world in the amateur rank is now a professional. As a student of golf for many years he has accumulated knowledge which is credited to the making of his book entitled “360 Degrees Power Swing,” his humble contribution to the perfection of the game.
In golfing, a golfer has no intentions of making a slice or a hook ball, especially when the fairway is wide and straight. But there she is. On the tee-off the ball goes out of bounds because of a bad slice. Experienced players will always tell you that a hook ball is a little better than a slice one. But under Moncado’s philosophy, a hook ball is no better than a slice. He considers the best ball as one that goes straight down the fairway in the direction where the green, or the flag, or the hole is located.
Some of you may wonder why General Moncado, the Master of Morality calls a straight ball the American Way of Life. A straight ball is an honest ball and it is a symbol of good behavior. The other type of balls-slice, hook, or dub are the trouble makers, especially the so-called dub ball. This type of ball is the symbol of a creeping, crawling, and sneaking communist. It destroys the morale of one who is caught with it unexpectedly. The game is no longer any value to him. Therefore, the act of demonstrating or maintaining the American Way of Life is also destroyed and gone forever. To that man the interest of the game is dead. You will not see him anymore on the golf course. If will take Christ to bring him back to life in this wonderful sport. In other words it takes man and God to bring his morale back.
Base on General Moncado’s philosophy, the American Way of Life is Christ’s Way. Do you remember what Christ had said to his followers about two thousand years ago? He said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” Therefore, the American Way of Life based upon the philosophy of General Moncado, the Master of Morality, is the Way to Christ. Philosophically speaking, Christ is in America today playing golf . . . his way of fighting the evils of the world . . . Communism.
THE MISSING LINK
In the early period of Christianity, the divine image of Jesus Christ, and the true meaning and value of his death on the cross, and the hope of his return, were virtually alive in the minds of those who believed Him.Every passing year, decade or century, many of them willingly sacrificed themselves defending the light of the world that the name of Christ will not be forgotten.
But today, this divine image of our Master and the hope of his return are no longer inherent in the minds of the believers. From the beginning of the Christian civilization up to this day, this hope, this image of Christ has completely disappeared with the rapid changing of human events. These things are no longer real in the minds of all faithful Christians. They no longer believe the scriptural facts that he will return to this world in a human form with flesh or body.
They believe that he will return to this confused world in spirit, not in flesh.This belief receives no scriptural support. We may be right to assume, with all the years behind us that Jesus will not be able to return with his former body. We may be right also to assume that the unbelievers were successful in destroying the Son of man. But Christ, the Son of God whose body is that of Jesus, cannot be destroyed. This is He who promised to come back as a thief.This is He whom they have seen after his death, “eating and drinking” with them proving that He is not a spirit, for a spirit does not eat.
These are the facts written in the four gospel of the New Testament. We must not overlook these facts for in them we find the evidence of truth concerning the power, the glory, and the great life to come with him in his second appearance.
In the four gospel, Christ said, “Peace be with you – why are ye troubled?Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I myself: handle me, and see: for a spirit hath not flesh and bones, as ye see me have – have ye here any meat? And they gave him a piece of a broiled fish, and of an honeycomb. And He took it, and did eat before them.”
From these facts, we learned that Christ is coming home to us not only in spirit but with flesh and bones so that we can see him, talk to him and understand him better.
We were told that He died to save his people or his sheep from drowning in the great ocean of sin filled with hatred, jealousy, greed, strife, sufferings, and all forms of vices which are destructive to “man’s physical fitness.”When a man saves another from drowning he is usually given a reward either with some merchandise or showers of thanks. When Christ returns is thanks good enough for his great work of dying to save us?
Let us ponder a little over this question. Let us search the Holy Scriptures for the true evidence of His Promise. What shall we do then to show our gratitude? Are we ready to receive Him into our fold, into our society? Or, are we going to destroy him again?
Wake Up Humanity!! Wake Up Fellow Christians!!
THE FIFTH ANGEL . . .
“And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.”
“And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.” Revelation 9: 1 – 2
EQUI FRILI BRIUM – OUR MASTER
“. . . and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it. Revelation 2: 17
“. . . and I will write upon him my new name.”
Revelation 3: 12
I SAW A STAR FALL FROM HEAVEN. . .
The last book of the New Testament is called “the Revelation of Saint John the Divine.” The prophecy in this book is based on the vision he received which came to him before the end of the first century Anno Domini. Christ Our Lord revealed to this faithful servant the power and glory of his triumphant return into this world.
In the history of Christianity which stretched for almost two thousand years, Christ trusted but only one among his legions of believers. As a trusted servant of God, the Almighty confided to him his inner feelings against all the churches of Christendom, according to Revelation 2.During this early period of Christian progress, all the churches of Christ had taken Satan’s way, - by denying, neglecting the true essence of his teachings. He also revealed a reward based on the merits of their individual faith.
I shall quote here the words he said to one of the seven great churches of Christendom in Asia Minor at that time. From these churches came the greatest religion in the world today called Christianity. He said, according to the vision as recorded in Revelation 2: 2, 4, 5, “I know thy works and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst bear them which are evil: and thou has tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: Nevertheless, I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.”
Whatever this first love, or the first works is that was denied, neglected or forgotten by this particular church for which our Lord is somewhat against it, is for all Christians to ponder at this time. Read chapter 2 of Revelation. Christ upon his return will execute his feelings against all the churches of Christendom if these churches do not repent. In the language of today, repentance means believing his new name and accepting his new doctrine, the Man’s Moral Concept. Above all, respecting his only human mechanism today in the person of General Hilario Camino Moncado. Jesus was the only human mechanism of Christ two thousand years ago but his people destroyed that body. Therefore Christ God has no more human body. Because of this, the only wise thing for him to do was to go to heaven.He could no longer stay here on earth because he had no body. He promised to come back as a thief, and today he is here teaching the world his new doctrine that Man and God are Equal which is the essence of “I and My Father are One.” Yes, He is not white anymore, but brown; a Filipino and not a Jew by race. This is God’s doing and it is wonderful.
In this issue you will see something which will arouse your interest of learning the Apocalypse. According to Revelation 9: 1-2, after the fifth angel sounded his trumpet, Saint John saw a star fall from heaven who was given the key of the bottomless pit. This is what John said in Revelation 9: 1-2, “And I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason the smoke of the pit.”
Now, what is this “a star fall from heaven,” and this “bottomless pit” that John saw in his vision many centuries ago? No one after John was given the knowledge and power to understand or interpret this prophetic vision of things to come upon his return to this earth.
But those who believe him today in his present form are divinely given such knowledge and power to understand the true meaning of every word, especially, the narratives or parables he designed to convey some truth or moral lesson which were recorded by his disciples in the New Testament.
The picture on the front page was given to me and I believe it was also given to every one who has matriculated in his organization as a student.I had this picture in my possession for almost 30 years. All this time I did not realize that it was there in Revelation 9: 1-2 until I was preparing for this issue.
Based on this chapter of Revelation, all E.F.B. students believe that the man in that star, whoever he is, to him was given the “Key of the bottomless pit,” which means the power or divine authority to command Nature to help him in executing the Divine Mission which the Almighty has entrusted to him.Please observe the picture on the front page carefully.
What is this bottomless pit mentioned here in Revelation 9: 1-2? In the language of today this “bottomless pit” means Volcano – all the volcanos in the world. Volcanos are not made by man. Therefore, it is safe to assume that they are made by God. The man in that star which falls unto the earth has the key of these volcanos because it was given to him according Revelation 9: 1-2.
It is further mentioned in this chapter that “he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.”
We know through our local and national newspapers that volcanos are very active today in all parts of the world. Their unusual behavior presents a perplexing problem among the scientists.
Earthquakes, storms, floods and other elemental forces of Nature are also very active in all parts of the world. No human power can do anything about it. Not even our scientists. No volcanologist can predict its beginning and its peaceful ending.
During the last major eruption of a Hawaiian volcano, the entire Hawaiian Archipelago was covered with haze “by reason of the smoke of the pit” which darkened the sun and air for days. On several occasions, an hour or so before sunset, the sun was visible in mysteriously dark red and our good scientist explained that the cause of it was the haze from the erupting volcano, or biblically speaking, the “smoke of the pit.” This unusual activity of Mother Nature is regarded as a timely warning to the people of this part of the earth. Other parts of the world were also warned through Mother Nature which is obedient to the will of the owner of the Key of the bottomless pit.
Because of the Key, there is no doubt that all elemental forces of nature are moved by the Will of the Master E.F.B. the Servant of the World, who will rule this earth through Wisdom and Morality.
Man was also created by the same Creator. If all elemental forces of Nature are obedient to His Will, man should also the same. The only way to be obedient to the Creator God, is to divinely follow, the Man’s Moral Concept, the new doctrine that man and God are equal. This new doctrine is a divine conception designed by the wisdom of God to save the proprietor of his image and likeness here on the surface of the earth. Furthermore, its purpose is to clean this world of vices, the works of the devil so it will be fit for that image to live on it.
This is the 13th and concluding issue of the MONCADO AND HIS MISSION BULLETIN for the year 1955. It is based upon the Moncadian Calendar of 13months in one year.
Do not think for a moment that because this is the final issue for the year 1955, it will be the end of Moncado’s Mission. No. In fact, it is the beginning of a great proclamation of the return of Our Master Christ into this world. The Man’s Moral Concept, the doctrine that Man and God are Equal, is the true essence of His doctrine that “I and my Father are One.”
This issue is dedicated to the month of (UM) named after Our Master’s new name as prophesied in Revelation 2: 17, and 3: 12. I shall quote these prophetic words as recorded in the Bible for the benefit of our understanding. “He that hath an ear, let him hear what Spirit saith unto the churches; to him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a (new name) written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.”
Also in chapter 3:12, He said: “Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the (name of my God), and the name of the city of my God, which is (New Jerusalem), which cometh down out of heaven from my God:(and I will write upon him my new name?”).
Yes. No one should know this except those who receive it. In fact, only General Moncado, the greatest moral philosopher of our time knows his new name because it is given to him, it is in him, and it is He.Because of his love of humanity and all of God’s creation, he has shared it with others who believe the certainty of the return of Christ. By doing this he proves his great love to those who love Christ, Christ E.F.B.
Now, whether you or the world believes it or not, the time has come to reveal him. The Good Shepherd has returned and is looking for his sheep. Those who remember the voice of his Master will come to him. He reminded us before he was crucified with this parable, “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.” (John 10: 27)
Prophetically, General Moncado received this new name after he wrote a book entitled “Equifrilibricum” which means equality, fraternity, and liberty. Because this book was used later by the senior class of the college of mystery as a textbook, he was given his mystic and psychic name, “Equi Frili Brium,” which means “I am the Way of Equality, I am the Truth of Fraternity, I am the Life of Liberty, and the Master of Equifrilibricum.”
In Saint John 14: 6, Jesus Christ said, “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.”
Now, if we study these two names carefully, Equi Frili Brium and Jesus Christ, knowing that they are both blessed with similar thoughts and equal value of meaning, our conclusive opinion would be that Equi Frili Brium is Jesus Christ in his present appearance. The Man’s Moral Concept, which postulates that Man and God are Equal, is his new doctrine now and forever without end because it is the true substance of his proclamation many centuries ago that “I and my Father are One.”
Therefore, there is no doubt that General Moncado is the human mechanism of Christ in his return because his principle of Equi Frili Brium is Christ.In other words Christ is in Him and that He is commissioned to teach man the Way of Equality, the Truth of Fraternity, and the Life of Liberty. Yes, I heard people cry from different corners of the world saying, “Anyone who claims to be God or Christ has to pass the test.” What test? Crucifixion? Was it necessary to crucify Jesus in order to know that He was really the Christ, the Prophetic Messiah, the Son of God, God of the living and not of the dead?No. Destruction was not necessary to find the Christ in Him. But because his people did not love him or believe him, he sorrowfully submitted himself to be crucified. Remember Gethsemane? Read the Gospel.
Truthfully, who crucified Jesus? Were they who loved and believed him that he was the Christ? Or were they the unbelievers who cried the loudest “Crucify Him! Crucify Him?”
We are looking for Peace because we believe that Peace is the only right and the only good for all mankind who believe that Man and God are Equal. We believe that from Peace flows the many blessings to make this world a beautiful place to live in both by man and God.
Therefore, without converting anyone outside of his organization, Equi Frili Brium is Christ; Christ is God; and God is Equi Frili Brium.
WATCH AND PRAY . . . for the time is at hand
The New Testament of the Holy Bible is the living literary monument of the life of Jesus Christ both as Man and God. It is a living record of the fulfillment of a great prophecy which derives from the Old Testament. The Old Testament is also a living record of the struggle of man in his search for his Creator God, the source of Universal Righteousness. This Universal Righteousness, since the day man “is become as one of us, to know good and evil,” has not been correctly defined. Because it has not been correctly defined by the Creator, man always do the wrong or the bad before he is able to see the right. In other words, he learns the lessons of right or good by doing the wrong or evil first.
If man had been obedient to God’s will instead of accepting the devil’s suggestions through Eve, the Creator would have given him the power of knowledge by defining good from evil, or right from wrong. As it is, just to know good and evil, is like a child who was told that this is fire. But the child was not correctly informed that fire burns. The poor little child had to burn himself to learn what fire is. But man was too ambitious that instead of waiting to be given he went ahead and ate the forbidden fruit. This is the basic formula of man’s way of thinking today, and it has been, since they were thrown out of Paradise. This formula is also the foundation of our present civilization is on the threshold of total destruction both by Mother Nature and by the knowledge of man.
There is only ONE WAY to stop this coming destruction and that is to follow the Man’s Moral Concept, because this doctrine is God’s way to save mankind and the wonders of his civilization. This would mean a wonderful, beautiful life for all mankind and that God is with us always and be our God, according to Matt. 1: 23. But if man refuses, then we must all prepare for the worse, for it will surely come.
Based on the old formula of thinking, since man began to know himself, he has to be involved in an accident in order to learn that driving a car with the influence of alcohol is absolutely a worthless experience. He has to have broken bones in order to learn that by violating a very simple street rule “thou shall not jay-walk” is also a useless adventure. A housewife has to revise the old technique around the kitchen after she burnt her fingers or her face. Man has to be imprisoned or strapped to an electric chair to learn that” Thou shalt not kill” is a law worthy to be observed and followed while living.
Based on the Bible, the power of knowledge that man had acquired is not God-given. It is gained through disobedience of his will or command. Therefore, because of this condition mankind has to suffer the curse of knowing, that unchangeable curse… “thou shalt surely die.” This is God’s way to punish man for disregarding His Will.Jesus Christ, the Man and God, in all humility taught us the virtue of obedience to the Will of our Creator God.He is the Christ, yet he has submitted himself to the will of his Father, at the time when his soul was exceedingly troubled and sorrowful by praying, “Father, if thou be willing remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine be done.” From this prayer of submission to the Supreme Being, we are relieved of this unchangeable curse of knowledge. Jesus Christ has shown us the Way to escape from this dreadful curse, but unfortunately, his disciples at that time did not understand him.
Today, we ask ourselves, how are we going to escape from this dreadful curse?There is only way, one course to follow and that is the Man’s Moral Concept, the doctrine that Man and God are Equal. Under this doctrine man’s soul will be free – free from hatred and jealousy, free from evil, strife, greed and disease. Through this doctrine God is responsible for our deeds and actions. He guides us to do good and the right thing always because God is in us. Under this doctrine, Man and God are partners and friends forever because “without man on earth there is no God on Earth.”
In the beginning, if man’s knowledge was God-given, the story would have been different. God’s blessings would abide with man and life would have been more pleasant and happier, free from fear of men and more fear of God which is the “beginning of wisdom.”
Today, we have observed that the more new medicines man discovers, many new complicated ailments arise, or new unknown type of disease appears. Every new invention means a new way to suffer or a new way to die. The discovery of gun-powder means death by single. The discovery of A-Bomb, or H-Bomb, or C-Bomb means death by wholesale.If we try to add all the products of Man’s knowledge from Biblical Cain to our present civilization, the grand total is nothing more than sufferings and deaths. The net result of the power of knowledge which man is very proud of today is destruction.
The birth of Jesus, the Christ, was God’s plan to save mankind from suffering and death. Nowadays, suffering and death are identified as vices, “all forms of vices that are destructive to man’s physical fitness.” But He was unable to teach the world His doctrine of salvation which is to believe that “I and my Father are One, or that Man and God are Equal.” He was also unable to teach man, “The Way, the Truth, and the Life,” because He was crucified. After his death none of his disciples really understood the meaning of it. So, when He returns, He will teach man the true meaning of “the Way, the Truth, and the Life,” and also the meaning of “I and my Father are One.” Therefore, the doctrine of Man’s Moral Concept is truly a divine revelation of his return.
His death stopped his mission temporarily, only to be resumed upon his return to this earth with great power and authority over the living and the dead.He brought with him the Man’s Moral Concept, the doctrine of life everlasting, and he speaks and teaches with power and authority that “God is Moral, Moral is man and Man is God.”
Today, General Moncado stands bravely on the top of the world proclaiming the advent of a new era, of salvation through the Man’s Moral Concept that Man and God are Equal. Man’s acceptance of this new doctrine will make the curse of knowledge – “thou shalt surely die” – ineffective for many centuries to come.
Since the day that the first man was deceived by Satan his influence remains in the minds of all succeeding generations. This Satanic influence guides man to work for destruction which is the ultimate goal of the Serpent, the devil, Satan. In other words, everything what God creates, Satan destroys them or makes them useless entities in all of God’s creations. But through the Man’s Moral Concept, this influence of Satan over the minds of man will be arrested and bound with chains by the angels of God and lock it in the bottomless pit for thousand years. In other words, the secret power of this doctrine through divine action neutralizes or rather checks this Satanic poison which has plagued the minds of man since he was thrown out of Eden.
The above interpretation is found in Revelation 20: 1-2-3 which reads:“And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the KEY of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years.And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.”
The Man’s Moral Concept, because of its divine origin, changes the old formula into a new one, because Revelation claimed, “I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away, and there was no more sea.”Also Revelation points out that when Christ returns everything will be changed to NEW: even his name will be new, and also his Holy City will be called New Jerusalem.
In the four gospel, Jesus Christ said, “WATCH AND PRAY” . . . for the time is at hand.
THE CROSS . . . symbol of life, purpose and destiny
To the Kabalist the cross is the symbol of man or humanity. A man standing erect with his feet together and his arms stretched sideways becomes a living cross, the symbol of life, purpose and destiny. The Kabalist believes that man is created with a definite purpose and this purpose will be translated to him as he progresses on the scale of service to his fellow beings because “Humanity be served is a Moral Virtue of every man to achieve in Life.” This purpose is divine and unknown to the Masters of the past except Our Lord Jesus Christ, therefore, today, it is like a stranger to the knowledge of man. When the Kabalist speaks of the cross, he is speaking of the underlying principle of the life and existence of man, because “Life is but service and suffering for the Love of Humanity.”
God’s purpose of creating man is divinely declared in the Man’s Moral Concept and significantly revealed by General Hilario Camino Moncado that “Man is God’s human mechanism of his wisdom, because without man on earth, there is no God on Earth.” Man whose knowledge or understanding of himself is based on the Man’s Moral Concept, fundamentally learns that his physical body is the divine machinery of God on earth, therefore, he strives to make this machinery in perfect running condition, so as to be able to perform or to execute, or to work for his God.In order to make this machinery in good running condition, man must learn to fight all forms of evils or vices that are destructive to his physical fitness. It has been known for centuries that evils or vices make man a useless machine of divine expression and because of Man’s refusal to be guided by God through the Man’s Moral Concept, he is unable to find the Way, the Truth, and the Life as divinely declared by Our Lord, “I AM THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE, NO MAN COMETH UNTO THE FATHER BUT BY ME.”
Today, Christ is back in a human form teaching the New Doctrine that Man and God are Equal through the MAN’S MORAL CONCEPT. This concept is the essence of “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” This Doctrine is the Way back to God, and Christ said, “This doctrine is not mine but his that sent me.”
Based on the philosophy of General Moncado, the Master of Kabala, the Cross signifies humanity, and “Humanity is God’s creation: and God’s creation of the Universe is but the divine pronouncement of PEACE ON EARTH AND GOOD WILL TO ALL MEN.”
To the historians, the cross means something else. Many hundreds of years before the Christian Era, it was commonly used as an instrument of punishment and death; hence, the symbol implies suffering and loss. Long before Jesus Christ was born, the Carthaginians and the Phoenicians employed the cross as an instrument of sacrifice to their Gods.
This method of punishment on the cross was later adopted by the Romans to punish outlaws, slaves and malefactors. They continued employing this method of torture until one day, they made the greatest blunder or the gravest mistake in the history of mankind by crucifying an innocent man, Jesus Christ, the Son of Man and God. His death on the cross was the beginning of the end of employing this horrible instrument of death.
Finally, the time came to put an end to this horrible method of punishment.Christ and his people have waited for four hundred years before the final conclusion was written. Then, the last word “FINIS” was pronounced by the Emperor of Rome, Constantine the Great, whom Christ had won to his side after he saw a vision of the cross. The Great Emperor abolished the employment of the Cross for capital punishment, and hereafter man’s life was protected and the Christians were no longer afraid to face the Cross, the infamous instrument of Death.
Before the crucifixion of our Lord, the people used to fear the sight of the Cross but with the triumph of Christianity she became the symbol of dignity and honor. In the past, it was called the infamous instrument of death, but since the fifth century, this famous symbol of suffering and death became the symbol of HOPE to all Apostolic Christians. The Cross became the emblem of their faith, and the central figure of Worship.Today, instead of embracing man to suffer and to his death, it ushered them to the Way, to the Truth, and to the Life as taught by Our Master, Christ.
In the light of the Man’s Moral Concept the doctrine that Man and God are Equal, the Cross has taken a New appearance, and a new meaning and a better position. Based on the Second Advent of Christ, it has become the symbol of Life, Purpose and Destiny.Instead of being the instrument of suffering, death, hope, or worship, under E.F.B. it has become the compass, guiding man’s soul to the Way of Equality, to the Truth of Fraternity, and to the Life of Liberty.
GOD and CALENDAR
The World needs a Calendar; a Calendar which helps to promote World Peace, Understanding and Cooperation. To have a calendar such as this, man should devise one which has as the underlying motivating principle, the Way to Equality. Equality is the way of God. Great men of the past taught us that “under God all men are created equal” . . . therefore under this principle man could develop a calendar filled with the blessings and grace of God.
Our present calendar develops discrepancy and confusion because the men who devised it misunderstood the divine meaning of “I and my Father are One or Man and God are Equal.” Some of his months have 28 or 29 days and others 30 to 31 days long. History gives us many good reasons why the length of these months are unequal. Adding all their good reasons together we received only one answer and that is because the Way of Equality was not known to them at that period of history.
In the beginning, God has equally divided light from darkness and called it “day and night.” The four “seasons” are also divided into equal periods by God, the Creator of this universe, according to Genesis. These are spring, summer, autumn and winter. There is no discrepancy and confusion in his system. His system is orderly because it follows the Way of Equality.God is Equal because he is moral and moral is man, according to the Man’s Moral Concept. In making his calendar, man should synchronize his effort with God’s system through the Man’s Moral Concept so his Calendar will agree with the seasons.
Here we present for the third time, the Moncadian Calendar for examination and study. It is not based on the Will of man alone but by the Will of God-E.F.B. It is called Moncadian Calendar because the Author is the famous philosopher and Master of Morality, Gen. Hilario Camino Moncado.
All E.F.B. Students believe that the World should have this calendar.Why? Because it is based on the Second Advent of Christ and his doctrine that “Man and God are Equal.” From this calendar, the world will receive the unlimited blessings of Peace on Earth and Good Will to all Men.”
According to the Kabalist, the thirteen months in the Moncadian Calendar represent the twelve disciples and the Master Himself. . . Jesus Christ.Under the Gregorian Calendar, the Master is not represented. Now that he is back, He wants to be in the midst of His disciples, the privilege He has enjoyed before He was crucified.
Christ is the owner of Peace. Christian reasoning will guide us that if His seat or position among His beloved disciples is not given back to Him there will never be Peace on this Earth, because without God on this earth, there is also no man on this earth.
There is no other Calendar today that offers Our Lord Christ a seat or a position among the twelve months but the Moncadian Calendar. Because “Man and God are Equal or I and my Father are One,” each month has 28 days. Read the following explanation by the Author-Moralist himself.
WHY MONCADIAN CALENDAR? Because: -
The Moncadian Calendar is a simplification for practical uses for daily woman understanding in order to determine the appearances and movements of the moon which appears on the earth every 28 days. It is, therefore, simplified that each month of the year should be 28 days and thus there shall be 13 months a year and in a year there shall be 364 days. The following are the months: January, 28 days; February, 28 days; March, 28 days; April, 28 days; May, 28 days; June, 28 days; July, 28 days; August, 28 days; September, 28 days; October, 28 days; November 28 days; and December, 28 days. One day between January 1st and December 28th the author calls a Cum Day. A holiday takes a place of the New Year. It is a well – known factor that the planet earth is known by woman as her world and she divides the world into four right angular degrees, and under the Moncadian Calendar its simplification by the author each angular degree shall be 91° degrees; thus in four angular degrees will give the result of 364° degrees by multiplying four right angular degrees by 91° right angular degrees. Therefore, the simplification by the author of the Moncadian Calendar will give equal movements of the earth around the sun in 364 days as is simplified by the author that the four right angular degrees of 364° degrees circumference around the world. Thus the movements of the moon around the earth of 28 days that allowing the moon to circumnavigate 364 days around the sun, as is the planet earth circumnavigates in 364 days around the sun without violating the known factor of 364° degrees of four right angular degrees.
The author simplifies the following under the Moncadian Calendar; there shall be 13 months a year; in a year there shall be 364 days; in a year there shall be 52 weeks as in a month there shall be 4 weeks; and each week there shall be 7 days. The first day of each week begins on Sunday, followed by Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and ends on Saturday of every week.
The author further simplifies that the Moncadian Calendar is a guide to woman as to the movement of the moon around the earth. The author simplifies that the first day of the week under the Moncadian Calendar is simplified by the author as the first day of the first quarter movement of the moon and thus the author divides the monthly Moncadian Calendar into four weeks equal with four quarters the appearances of the moon into the earth. Thus the first week of the Moncadian Calendar is the first quarter of the moon; the second week of the Moncadian Calendar is the second quarter of the moon; the third week of the Moncadian Calendar is the third quarter of the moon; and the fourth week of the Moncadian Calendar is the fourth quarter of the moon. On the 28th day of every month of the Moncadian Calendar is the last day of the fourth quarter of the moon. Every first day of the week which falls always on Sunday of every month of the Moncadian Calendar is the first day of the first quarter of the moon. Second Sunday begins the second week of the month and also begins the second quarter of the moon. The third Sunday begins the third week of the month and also begins the third quarter of the moon. The fourth Sunday begins the fourth week of the month and also begins the fourth quarter of the moon. From say January 1 to 7 of the week of every month is the first quarter of the moon begins from say January 1 to 7. From say January 8 to 14 of the second week of every month is the second quarter of the moon begins from say January 8 to 14. From say January 15 to 21 of the third week of every month is the third quarter of the moon begins from say January 15 to 21. From say January 22 to 28 of the fourth week of every month is the fourth quarter of the moon begins from say January 22 to 28. Thus the moon appears on Sunday of the 1st day of the month and continues appearing until last day of the month which is 28 days of the month which falls on Saturday. Thus the author hopes that this Moncadian Calendar helps to guide every woman within the realm of Divine Wisdom on earth which Peace and Good Will may predominate among men.
ALPHA AND OMEGA . . .his words still stand
He was crucified and now he is back.
For judgment I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind.
(St. John 9: 39)
For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son.
(St. John 5: 22)
Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing, they hear not, neither do they understand.
(Matt. 13: 113)
Are we afraid of his return? Where is wisdom?
SEEK HIM . . . the Lord is His Name
This is the prophecy of Amos brought before you in order to bring into remembrance the words Christ had left to us and His promise to return. The prophet said, “SEEK HIM that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth:The Lord is His Name.” (Amos 5: 8).
About 800 years before Our Lord Jesus Christ was born, the prophet Amos pronounced this prophecy. This prophecy points to the birth of Our Lord Jesus Christ whom Isaiah said, “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)
His death on the cross prolonged the fulfillment of the prophecy of Amos and Isaiah. In fact, only half of the prophecy of Isaiah was fulfilled. “The government shall be upon his shoulder” is yet to come. Upon his return to this world, he shall work to make this prophecy come true not in the form of miracles, but with hard work, patience and humility, because He said, “Think not that I am come to destroy the Law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill.” (Matt. 5: 17)
The illustration on the front page fulfills the first part of Amos’ prophecy . . . “Seek Himthat maketh the seven stars . . .” As you will see, it resembles the national flag of the Philippines.This is the symbolic banner of Christ in his Second Advent; therefore, it is sacred.
The banner symbolizes the victory he has won through the resurrection.He has conquered death; therefore, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth,” and all those who believe his resurrection meaning his return to this world shall be rewarded the promise of the everlasting life, life that is free from the clutches of vices, the evils of this world, the destroyers of man’s physical fitness, “the shadow of death.”
General Moncado revealed this banner many years ago to his students and disciples in America, and it was kept secret among them all these years.
Because the time has come that his divine mission must be preached, both his students and disciples took this opportunity of revealing the prophetic banner – the “Seven Stars,” which constitutes the prophetic constellation – Orion.
The Three Large Stars represent the three principal wounds of Jesus; notably his hands and chest, where the centurion’s spear pierced his heart in the last hour of his suffering.
The Sun represents his face, and the chain around the sun represents the crown of thorns that was pressed on his head when the unbelievers mocked Him.The four tiny stars represent the tiny wounds on his forehead caused by His crown of thorns.
The Banner as a whole is the symbolic body of Our Lord Jesus Christ suffering on the cross. It contains a great message of divine significance to all the people of this world.Also, it has divinely confirmed the prophecy “Seek Him that maketh the Seven Stars and Orion – The Lord is His Name.”
This part of the prophecy – “And turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night:” – is the Man’s Moral Concept.Shadow of death means vices, and vices are destructive to Man’s physical fitness, according to the Man’s Moral Concept.Destruction means death. Those who believed and followed the Man’s Moral Concept by “fighting all forms of Vices” which is the “shadow of death,” according to the prophecy, turned themselves into new beings, fresh and full of new life. Ye must be born again. Christ said, “Except a man be born again, he cannot see the Kingdom of God.”
Also, this part of the prophecy – “That calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The Lord is His Name” – is the volume of cataclysmic happenings rampaging all over the world today, such as tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, volcanos, smogs, heat and cold waves, storms, tidalwaves, and many other activities of Mother Nature.
Wake up America, CHRIST is with you. Teach the World the Man’s Moral Concept, the doctrine that Man and God are Equal, and God will crown you with Honor, and Save you from destruction by Mother Nature.
MIRACLE SEEKERS . . . generations of vipers
When Jesus Christ was teaching his doctrine that “I and my Father are One” many of the scribes, the elders, and the Pharisees “seeketh after a sign” or a miracle before they believed him.
That same thought still exist today among all professed Christians who are materially no longer interested of the Master’s return into this world.They want to see a sign or a miracle first before they believe him.
According to the gospel in Matthew chapter 12, Jesus calls these miracle seekers “an evil and adulterous generations of vipers.”
Today there shall be no sign given to these miracle seekers except the sign of Mother Nature whose unusual behavior today leaves untold human sufferings and world-wide destructions. Mother Nature has been very active since the day the Man’s Moral Concept was revealed in mid-1947. “Mother Nature is only obeying the command of God, the Creator and owner of this World,” said, the Master of Morality.
Let us briefly review the three years of Jesus ministry. For three short years of his life, he performed more miracles than the unbelievers, or the miracle seekers, or the adulterous generations of vipers could see. He performed miracles such as making the blind see, the lame walk, the sick whole, walking on the sea, feeding thousands of people with only seven loaves of bread and few little fishes, and above all, bringing the dead back to life including himself. From all these miracles, what did he receive from his people? Nothing. Did he receive some fitting applause or praise for such a wonderful service?No. instead, according to the gospel, he was called Beelzebub, the Prince of the devil, or the devil himself. This was the highest honor or title man was able to confer upon him for trying to save mankind, especially, the blinds, the dumbs, the lames, the sick and the dead.
Something of the same nature has happened to General Hilario Camino Moncado today. For giving the world the light of salvation through the Man’s Moral Concept, so that man shall not walk in darkness but in the light of the great doctrine that Man and God are Equal, he is morally mistreated, misunderstood and above all else, his public misinterpreted his work.
Christ as he is today, will not use the power of miracles for any reason.He has learned that it did not help him in any way. The miracles he performed only increased the hatred and conspiracy against him and above all his people became doubtful and faithless that in the last hour of his suffering only a handful of his friends stood by. One who is the most trusted of all his friends denied him. If you expect the old Master to perform some miracles now that he is back, then you will be the first among the multitudes of miracle seekers to receive the first great disappointment in your life. He feels that the best miracle to make is to perform none.
In Jesus time there were many drunkards just like today. Wine was their favorite drink. Jesus drank wine but nothing in the record ever mentioned of any occasion that he was drunk.
General Moncado also drinks like any other man next to you. He never refuses a friendly offer of beer. He likes his beer very much. He drinks with you all the way and he never gets drunk or seen drunk.
There was one great miracle that Jesus performed in a certain wedding in Cana of Galilee. In this weeding he had performed a miracle which opened a new frontier in the minds of men in search of a better drink than wine. This particular wine was not made from grapes but from pure water. From that day on up to our present time, men are always searching everyday for a better drink than wine. For almost two thousand years men have discovered hundreds of different formula of alcoholic drinks all because of the taste which was created by the miracle.Today we read on every bottle this familiar sign of taste – 70%, 80%, 100% proof.
Homes are broken; drunkards roam our streets; and our women and children are no longer safe to walk on them because of the miracle that water was turned to wine.
As far as I am concerned, there is no one to be blamed but the miracle.No, not even Jesus nor the Mother of Jesus who suggested the idea of turning water into wine, is to be blamed. Just to satisfy the occasion or the Mother of Jesus, he regretfully said, “Women what have I to do with thee? Mine hour is not yet come.” (St. John 2: 4)
Today if Christ comes back which he promised he will, and I sincerely believe he is already here in flesh, eating and drinking together with you.He will change that wine back to water.He drinks all the way with you but he never gets drunk. Why?
There is only one way to answer this question. The condition of the world today is like a drunkard, if left alone to find his way home, is inviting a suicide. In this beautiful world we live in, we cannot find a single sane and sober man to help find a remedy of the situation except God-Christ-E.F.B. whose mission now is to make this world a new home of the living – sober man.
He found that the only formula to keep man alive and sober is the Man’s Moral Concept, the doctrine that Man and God are Equal. If all men should strictly, literally and divinely follow this doctrine he will not only find his way to God but he will also find his way to live with God here on this earth.
In other words, when Christ returns to this earth, he has to change the wine and all the spirits locked in cans and bottles to water so that man will be able to uphold and maintain that valuable image and likeness of the Creator in him.
The Man’s Moral Concept, the doctrine that Man and God are Equal, is the only doctrine that can change or reverse the miracle of Jesus.
This is the only living doctrine which belongs to the living Christ E.F.B.It is the only proper doctrine for the living man whose blessings will change sorrow to happiness; night to day; darkness to light; death to life; and the wine back to water.
With this doctrine, water, pure water, will once more give its full unlimited blessings to the life of man. Jesus Christ said according to Revelation, “And let him that is at thirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.”
The Kingdom of God Shall Be Taken From You
On the third year of Jesus’ Ministry, the number of stubborned and determined unbelievers among his people have increased to an alarming proportion.At this point of his ministry he was also determined to preach the name of God among them. With this determination he preached to them in parables.These parables contain great moral information leading to wisdom and understanding of God’s purpose and also his mission here on earth.
Historically, the Jews of yesterday misunderstood these parables.Consequently, this misunderstanding developed into hatred and jealousy of his doctrine. Because of this attitude “the Jews sought more to kill Him.”If these parables were understood, the crucifixion of Our Lord Jesus Christ would not have happened. He would not have pronounced the promise to return in order to pass judgment on the rebellious men and their corrupted world.
The parable which is recorded in Matthew 21: 33 to 44 inclusively is worth learning today. This parable is a great storehouse of moral information leading to a better understanding between man and his God. It also points the consequences which are apt to follow if man continuous his rebellious attitude against his divine creator.
Biblically, the people of Jesus’ time did not understand the meaning of this parable; therefore, they have mistakenly killed the Son of God, the Christ in Jesus, by crucifying him. Consequently, based on this parable, God the Father in due time will take “the Kingdom of God” from these people and give it to another nation “bringing forth the fruits thereof.”
Now, listen to this parable very carefully: Jesus said, “There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower and let it out to husbandmen and went into a far country.” This is verse 33 of Matthew chapter 21, the beginning of this misinterpreted parable.
In this verse Jesus, the Son of man, compared God, the owner of this world to a certain householder who owns a certain vineyard. In other words, householder means God, and vineyard means the earth or the world. Also, he compared the people on this earth to husbandmen or farmers who are working in this vineyard. This vineyard had everything the farmers wanted including a fence round about the property, a machinery for making wine and also a tower. These things were built by the owner before he went away to another country.
The earth or the world is the property of God. It has everything man wants. The atmosphere which surrounds the earth or the large body of water encircling our planet is like a fence or hedges planted round about the vineyard.On this earth the owner has created deep beautiful valleys, large rivers and also erected towering mountains all for the benefit of mankind. All of these things resemble the winepress and the tower in the vineyard as stated in the parable.
THE TWO GREATEST MORAL CODES
THE WORD WAS GOD . . . and was made flesh
“In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God.”
About two thousand years ago, these simple words of Saint John, simple yet filled with divine thoughts and inspirations, ushered many people – both the disciples and believers of Christ to the Way of God. These words gave them new meaning and light to their ancient confused concept of the Creator. These words also pointed to a new pathway of believing and understanding God, his people, and purpose.
Today, the name of Christ is known in every land of the globe. From the northern tip of Alaska down through the great pampas of South America, and from the Great Wall of China down through the wilds of Africa, the Gospel was preached and made known. The command to “go and preach the gospel to all people, nation and tongue,” was accomplished within our life time.Thanks to all faithful Christians, the soldiers of Christ, who carried the greatest command of the time to the day of his return.
Men who have not forgotten their Creator-God aligned themselves with the disciples and made Jesus, the Christ, their leader and Master. Whether these simple words of Saint John were intended for the past generations or for the present and future history of mankind, it is your privilege and mine to ponder on it. But this much can be said at the present time.
Today, on the threshold of our modern civilization, a philosopher from the East, the Master of Morality, whose mission is to Serve the World, brings with him a New Concept of the WORD THAT WAS WITH GOD, AND THE WORD WAS GOD, AND WAS MADE FLESH.
This concept is a timely message to all people revealing the presence of Christ here in this confused world of ours. It reveals the divine relationship between man and his Creator. It interprets the duty of man towards his God, and towards his fellowmen. Also, it points the Way to be clean in mind and body so that man in the image and likeness of his Creator will become an acceptable instrument of his wisdom. Above all, it unveils the presence of God in Man, and that Man and God are equal.
Mid-way of the year 1947, the Author-Moralist, General Hilario Camino Moncado dramatically announced to the people of the world. “This is the MAN’S MORAL CONCEPT from which will pour forth blessed things for the generations to come who believe in it.”
This concept is composed of three well divided paragraphs. It contains 231 words; words with divine quality and power expressing what is God and what is Man, and their duty and obligation to each other here on this earth. It is in all its divinity and sincerity of thoughts; a revelation and fulfillment of his promise to come again to judge the world, and later to establish his kingdom.
On page 1 of this Bulletin you will find the MAN’S MORAL CONCEPT as revealed by the Author. With all sincerity, we want you to study it very carefully; for in it you will find the KEY to unlock the great mystery surrounding the present form of Christ and also you will find the WAY to understand him better.
There is no doubt that this Moral Concept of Man is the evidence of Christ second advent into this world, because it is the essence of “I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE.” In other words, the Man’s Moral Concept is a divine proclamation of Christ-God to all people who are awaiting for his return. It is the doctrine of the great life, the WAY OF EQUALITY, THE TRUTH OF FRATERNITY, AND THE LIFE OF LIBERTY. Within the boundaries of these 231 words it reveals the divine pattern of the great life that man in the image and likeness of his Creator should follow it in order to be with Him, and to avail himself to that great life which brings infinite wisdom and everlasting happiness.
The Man’s Moral Concept is the New Covenant between God and His people at this period of our civilization. It is the Covenant of salvation from evil and sin which weakened the moral fiber of every individual image and likeness of God.Man’s Moral Concept releases our souls from the strangle hold of the devil who is the owner of all vices in the world which are destructive to man’s physical fitness. It drives away the devil and all his destructive forces from the existence of man. Above all, it destroys all his works of darkness before us. Man’s Moral Concept elevates man’s present knowledge to a higher degree of moral thoughts and understanding making him an acceptable instrument of God in his wisdom.
One great influence in the world that man can utilize to achieve goodness which alone can console humanity is the moral force that tends to infuse in the latent feeling of the individual the spirit of tolerance, love and understanding. Morality which impels man to achieve what is noble in life helps him to attain his goal which be designs to make him succeed in his chosen enterprise.
Morality is goodness transformed into a chain of acts which man performs for the benefit not only of himself but also of his fellow beings. An act well done for self alone is ignoble, because the extent of its range is limited to a few, if not to one alone. But an act performed with a view to extending the helping hand of charity to all without number is exemplary and inspiring.
As General HILARIO CAMINO MONCADO, one of the greatest Filipino thinkers of today, postulated in his MAN’S MORAL CONCEPT, moral or morality is man’s great divine power. The General said in part:
“Moral is but man’s great divine power to achieve all things on earth, because it is life. Life is but humility and meekness of man’s great virtue in order to inherit the wealth of the Earth. Man is God’s human mechanism in His wisdom. Because without man on earth there is no God on Earth. Man’s moral is God’s Human Virtue. Moral is but man’s divine guidance to achieve all earthly things – the material of life. The moral of a man is against all earthly vices. All vices are destructive to man’s physical fitness and, therefore, man should fight against all vices.”
Based on this concept as evolved by the General, morality is, therefore, the only force that can direct man’s tendency towards perfection in his inner self and in his reaction to outside circumstances and his environment.
Perfection is an ideal and may be difficult to attain.Its attainment may be impossible.But it is within the power of man to try to be perfect, and if man will only try, he can be perfect because GOD created men to be perfect.
Based on this concept, man’s morality which has been missing since the day the first couple were driven out of paradise, will be restored.
Restoration of man’s morality means salvation for all mankind. Christ, Our Lord, according to the Gospel, came to restore or “save that was lost.”
Our Humble Apology
To all those who have heard the Good News – the Moncado and His Mission Bulletin. We hope that you have not misunderstood us. By sending you the Bulletin, if it had offended your religious, your faith, or beliefs, please accept our humble apology. We did not send the Bulletin to cause you unhappiness, or to offend you or to similar disturb your peace. No.
Our purpose is similar to that of a man who has built a new house. When the house is finished, well painted inside and outside, and it is well furnished, then he goes around inviting his neighbors to his so-called “house warming.” Well, that is exactly what we have done. By sending you the Bulletin, we are inviting you to “Our House Warming” of Christ-E.F.B. and his second appearance. Speaking for all E.F.B. students and disciples of Christ, to those who have received the Bulletin from the first to the last issue, beginning January up to this month – December, 1955, goes our deepest appreciation for permitting us to invite you good people.
The “house warming” is almost over. We could go on forever but the program calls for only thirteen months. It is not our wish but the wish of Our Lord and Master in his second advent who speaks with this parable in St. Luke 13: 6-7-8-9. “A certain man had a fig tree planted in his vineyard; and he came and sought fruit thereon, and found none. Then said he unto the dresser of his vineyard, Behold, these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig tree, and find none; cut it down; why cumbereth it the ground? And he answering said unto him, Lord, let it alone this year also, till I shall dig about it, and dung it: And if it bear fruit, well: And if not, then after that thou shalt cut it down.”
The meaning of this parable, fits into the present condition of man’s apostolic religion. Christ the owner of this religion or vineyard, seeks fruits and found none.
Christ in his second advent expected it to be received into his vineyard which is Christianity, the religion named after him.But he “seeks fruit” and found none, which means he was denied and unwelcomed into his own house – his religion.
However, we do not blame anyone nor any religion, nor any nation, because he said, “I come as a thief.” It means that no one is able to recognize him unless he is moral because, “God is Moral, Moral is Man, and Man is God.”
“With such heritage goes a sacred duty to perpetuate the glorious traditions that have made America great and free! All of us should strive for a clear understanding of the forces that won for all Americans in world-leadership . . . and share it with our children as their glorious, rightful heritage. America’s divine pronouncement is PEACE ON EARTH AND GOOD WILL TO ALL MEN.”
GENERAL MONCADO loves America because America is his home. He is Filipino by birth but he belongs to America and the world because he worked hard to make America strong. His mission is to help America become a world leader in order to serve humanity because humanity is God’s creation.

INSERT PICTURE (page 45)
The picture on the left above is the late Lorenzo Delos Reyes, first Spiritual Director, inventor, physical instructor, a good golfer, and one of the thirteen original founders of the Filipino Federation of America, Incorporated.
On the right is the book he made entitled “Every Day New and Wonder.” The book serves as an inspiration to those who seek the Master and also serves as an instruction to those who wish to learn the new doctrine, “Equifrilibricum.” He had one purpose in life and that was to serve Our Master to the best of his ability. He summarized his mission into these humble words - “I am willing to work or serve.”
Who is E.F.B.? A very wise questions. Among the first twelve disciples of Our Master, only Mr. Reyes knew the way to E.F.B.Therefore, he led the rest of the disciples and members through the narrow way to Him.
From the early beginning of the Federation, he and the Master together struggled to establish the necessary foundations of their Mission. Although he is no longer living, the work he left behind remains as a monument of his great service to all humanity. It also reminds every follower, disciple, or student of Our Master to always keep the way clear for HIM by strictly, literally, divinely follow the Man’s Moral Concept.
Mr. Reyes was the first disciple to realize the divine importance of “Humanity be served is a moral virtue of every man to achieve in life.” He was also the first matriculate member to understand that “life is but service and suffering for the love of humanity.” Because of this he initiated himself to the divine proclamation of Our Master – Equi Frili Brium – Christ in his return into this world.
God bless his soul.

On this earth the owner has created deep beautiful valleys, large rivers and also erected towering mountains all for the benefit of mankind. All of these things resemble the winepress and the tower in the vineyard as stated in the parable.
The parable continues: “And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen that they might receive the fruits of it. And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.”
In these verses, Jesus compared the prophets of God to servants of the householder. In the course of time, God sent many of his servants who appeared among the people on this earth. They were instructed to receive His share of the fruits of this world. But His prophets were not received; instead, they were beaten, stoned, imprisoned and killed.
The Bible shows that from Abel to Moses, the prophets and the men who worshipped His name were treated exactly as stated in the parable. Again, from Noah to John the Baptist, God dispatched another group of His servants which were more than the first, but they were also given the same treatment as the others before them. According to the Gospel, the last among the prophets of God was John the Baptist, a very good friend of Jesus Christ, the Son of man and God. John was imprisoned and later beheaded for reasons far beyond the realm of justice. It is recorded in the Bible that the blood of the prophets including that of John the Baptist and Jesus must be avenged upon his return.
He said in Matthew 23: 34-36, “behold I send unto you prophets, and wise men, and scribes, and some of them ye shall kill and crucify . . . That upon you may come all the righteous blood shed upon the earth, from the blood of righteous Abel unto the blood of Zacaharias, son of Barachias, whom ye slew between the temple and the altar . . . all these things shall come upon this generation.”
The parable continues: “But the last of all he sent his son, saying, they will reverence my son. But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, this is the heir; come let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance. And they caught him, and out of the vineyard, and slew him.”
When Jesus heard that John was beheaded he was very sad and full of sorrow because he knew that in his Father’s household there were no more prophets or servants left to do errands for his Father but him.Also, his heavenly Father had no other choice but sent “his only begotten son” in the name of Jesus Christ to do His Will. It is recorded in St. Luke 22: 43 that before Jesus was arrested by the wicked husbandmen led by Judas Escariot, he prayed to His Divine Father, saying, “Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me; nevertheless not my will, but thine be done.” The odds were too much to have it otherwise. The cup was not removed; therefore, they slew him or crucified him.
From this parable we learn the real reason why he came into this world. He said, “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day; the night cometh, when no man can work.” Because he was killed, the work of his Father was left unfinished.
The parable continues: Jesus said, “When the Lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen. They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him fruits in their seasons. Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in scriptures, the stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord’s doing and it is marvelous in our eyes?”
In this parable we learn that Jesus Christ was the rejected one. The people at that time did not understand what he meant by rejection until they saw him hanging there on the cross, lifeless. Crucifixion was the act of rejection by the men who disliked his presence here on earth, God’s vineyard.
From this parable, it seems that his beloved Father, the Almighty God of this universe, is coming together with him to destroy those wicked husbandmen who are still here on this earth disguised as believers or followers of his name.Today, it is very difficult to locate these 20th century wicked husbandmen. There is only one person in the world today who is able to identify individually these wicked husbandmen. This person is none other than Christ his only begotten son because he was here before in a human form in the name of Jesus. Today, in his second coming he is no longer known as Jesus Christ but Equi Frili Brium. Equi Frili Brium means “I am the Way of Equality, the Truth of Fraternity, the Life of Liberty, and the Master of Equifrilibricum.”
There is no doubt that men are builders of civilization. Christ in Jesus was once upon a time rejected by these builders; therefore, based on this parable he will someday upon his return “become the head of the corner.” This parable means that upon his return into this world, Christ the rejected ONE will become the head of a great moral crusade which is now progressing throughout the world initiated by General Hilario Camino Moncado, the Master of Morality.
This great moral crusade is primarily dedicated to fighting against all the 20th Century wicked husbandmen in whose veins still run the blood of those who have participated in the crucifixion of Our Lord Jesus Christ many centuries ago. General Moncado’s Man’s Moral Concept has paved the Way of Equality, the Truth of Fraternity, and the Life of Liberty, the doctrine of Christ in his second advent.
The parable continues: “Therefore say I unto you, The Kingdom of God shall be taken from you, given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken:but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.”
The following quotations are found in Matthew chapter 21: verses 43 and 44. This is the most interesting part of the whole parable. In Biblical history the Jews were at one time considered the chosen people of God. As the chosen people they were given God’s wisdom to understand and interpret the divine mysteries of his existence. These people have given the world the greatest moral code in the history of mankind, the Ten Commandments. The world owes this nation the concept of God, life and creation. From the beginning, God, the Creator of this universe was with them always because they believed and worshipped Him.
But according to this parable, the Kingdom of God will be taken from them and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.It means that the divine power, authority, the title as the chosen people, and everything that was given to them as a gift from the Creator will be taken away from them. Also, it means that they are no longer in God’s favor.This is God’s punishment for killing the prophets and His beloved son. In Matthew 23: 37-39, Jesus said, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered her chicken under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate. For I say unto you, Ye shall not see me henceforth, till ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.”
Yes, ye shall not see him today, till every man, every nation in the world shall say, Blessed is the man that cometh in the name of God Christ E.F.B. the heir of this world. Who is this man coming into this world in the name of God Christ through morality? There is none other than General Moncado, the Author of the New Doctrine that Man and God are Equal, as postulated in His Man’s Moral Concept. Who is this nation to whom is given the power, authority, and title as his chosen people? There is none other than the Filipino Nation. The Filipino people are the new husbandmen whom God has chosen to take care of his vineyard.
I hope the Filipino people and the Filipino Nation as a whole will realize this responsibility. We should be thankful to the Almighty for choosing our nation to lead and educate the world through the principles of Morality. Also, every Filipino man should be thankful to the one and only Filipino Five-Star General Hilario Camino Moncado chosen by the Almighty God to lead his people into battle against the forces of evils, vices, and every conceivable work of darkness in this world including the godless communism.
Wake up Filipinos wherever you are. Christ E.F.B. is calling you. Your time has come to fight under the banner of Christ E.F.B.Your armor against evils and vices is the Man’s Moral Concept for in it we are equal with God. Being equal with God here on earth, no evils, vices or darkness will dominate our lives.
Under the commandership of General Moncado, the Master of Morality, his people, the Filipino People are now engaged in the greatest battle of all time in the history of man and God here on earth.Our sole objective is to drive the works of vices away from the physical structure of man, and to restore the divine doctrine of God the Almighty into that physical structure, because “man is God’s human mechanism in his wisdom. “Because without man on earth there is no God on earth.” The Man’s Moral Concept is the new covenant between man and God here on earth.
Wake up humanity! Remember this . . . Peace can never be attained in this world unless mankind abides with the new covenant between the husbandmen and the householder who owns the vineyard.
In other words, Wake up America! The divine Judgment is upon you. You shall suffer a little while until General Moncado, the human mechanism of Christ today is welcomed back into the land of the free and the home of all brave Americans.
GAMBLING versus GOLFING
Gambling is invading the Golf World.
Gambling in the golf course is becoming worse each year.General Moncado, the Master of Morality, has seen this evil slowly changing the general outlook of this wonderful, simple, clean and honest pastime. If this evil will be left unchecked, there is no doubt that the golf course will become, as Christ said, “dens of thieves.”
As a leader with countless followers in America, Hawaii, Philippines, and other parts of the world, his first obligation to these people is their moral welfare. So, to keep his follower-golfers away from this evil on the golf links, he encouraged them to follow his moral doctrine – the Man’s Moral Concept.
In 1947, he launched the greatest crusade ever undertaken by any human being against the devil, the ruler of vices in this world. The Man’s Moral Concept has become the most effective weapon against the works of Satan and his hosts of evil followers but the fight has not yet been won. Under his command, his good angels who are strictly observing the Man’s Moral Concept have inflicted heavy losses on the works of Satan.
During his last visit in the Hawaiian Islands he discouraged his followers against the danger of gambling, especially in the game of Golf. He reminded them of the Man’s Moral Concept, and that based on this doctrine, gambling and golfing can not go together. He philosophically emphasized the great difference between the two. Gambling leads you directly to Satan’s hideout, and golfing leads you to the works of God.
He said, in the Man’s Moral Concept, “all vices are destructive to man’s physical fitness and, therefore, man should fight against all vices.” With this concept he inspired his followers to organize the Moncado Crusaders Golf Club of Hawaii. The chief purpose is to combat gambling on every green, tee and stroke.
Every member of this club is a soldier of Morality.His duty as a soldier is to destroy all forms of vices which he may encounter in the Golf Course, in his own house, and everywhere else.
Our warmest thank you goes to the Master of Morality, for giving us the light of salvation.
To SAVE and to SERVE are Equal
This is the first issue of Moncado and his Mission Bulletin for the year 1956 A.D. It is the beginning of the 2nd year of our proclamation of the Divine Master E.F.B.-Christ in his second advent. It is very interesting to know that this 2nd year of our proclamation also corresponds exactly to the 2nd year of Jesus’ ministry before he was crucified.
Jesus Christ came into this world to save that was lost.
E.F.B. through General Moncado came into this world to serve those who were saved by Jesus Christ. Where are the saved? General Moncado is ready to serve them with the everlasting food. But where are the saved? E.F.B.-Christ in Moncado, the World Servant, is ready to serve them with the MAN’S MORAL CONCEPT, the everlasting food for the living. “Thou shalt not live by bread alone, but by the words. . .”The Man’s Moral Concept is the doctrine for the living man. It comes from the living GOD E.F.B. in General Moncado. “HUMANITY BE SERVED IS MY FATHER’S SUPREME LABOR.” (E.F.B. Moncado).
MAN AND GOD ARE NOT EQUAL MAN AND GOD ARE EQUAL
The Present Civilization The Coming Civilization
Civilization’s Last Hope of Survival
Men are known in history as builders of civilization. How did they become builders of civilization has not been fully understood or definitely known even unto this day. Historians believe that human beings are superior than animals or the beasts in the forest because they are equipped with the power of reasoning and the ability of learning. “If human beings,” one historian explained, “had no more ability than the animals to learn from the past mistakes and successes of previous generations, then each generation of man would lead a brute existence, changing from century to century only because of external accidents or inherited modifications.”
This deduction is quite true. According to the Bible, when man disobeyed his Creator, he was placed outside the garden of Eden where all wild animals and beasts were living. There were also many animals in the garden but they were friendly, kind and loving. Outside, the elements were also violent, tempestuous and cruel. But inside, the elements were peaceful, and the weather was fair and serene.
When man was in the garden with God, he led a quiet and peaceful existence.Shelter and clothing were unnecessary.Food was plentiful and everything he needed was within his reach.
In the wilderness, with the wild animals as his neighbors, he had learned and acquired their habits and the bestial ways of life. Under this condition man has become as one of them, brutish, savage and irrational. He has become both the fearful and the fearless among the beasts in the wilderness.
On this stage of man’s history, fear which now has lodged in the very center of his existence sets the mechanism of knowledge into perpetual motion.Hereafter, the desire to learn and to know things has become an inherent quality of man. This is the beginning of man’s real struggle to live. In the midst of this untamed neighbors and surroundings, man began to hate his creator. Besides the beasts, he had to overcome the unfriendly elements and other forces of Nature which were seemingly active against man in those days.
Since the beginning of history, man has made himself the Lord and the Master over all creations, be it above, below or on the surface of the earth. Also, he had made great advancement in the art of survival and protection against the elements. In fact, right now, a group of brains are busy searching for some methods, systems or formulas of neutralizing or taming some of these unfriendly forces of nature which are now touring around the world, leaving behind them trails of great destructions and deaths.
Since the opening of the twentieth century, man is no longer afraid of animals or elemental forces, such as storms, tornados, volcanos, tidal waves, floods, heat and cold waves etc. Such forms of fear are proportionately absent in man today. What man fears most are his friends, his neighbors and his own kind.His fear of the animals is transferred to his neighbor man. Today, he looks at his neighbor not as a man but as a beast, full of hate, suspicion, distrust, etc., therefore, individually or collectively, he seeks to make war in order to destroy one another. This is the sign that civilization has come of age and soon it will break down.
WAR IS JUST A MATTER OF TIME: This civilization of man which was founded upon fear of animals or beasts will be destroyed soon. Destructions will come either from the builders, themselves or from Mother Nature.Some historians believe that the so-called Christian Civilization has entered the threshold of decline and decay. In other words it has become of age. Age and death is the general punishment of man, according to the Bible.It is God’s perpetual judgment upon man’s generation for disobeying his WILL. Decline and decay is but the perpetual punishment of his civilization.
The civilizations of man, according to historians, are progressive and experimental. Historians believe that someday one of these civilizations will ultimately achieve its goal and become static. When that happens, if it does happen, we shall have attained presumably what is variously called UTOPIA, the MILLENIUM, and the KINGDOM OF GOD ON EARTH.
According to these historians, whenever any civilization ceases to be progressive and experimental, it is because it is broken and is entering on a course of disintegration.
Our civilization today is under this category. Some of our great men have seen signs that Christian civilization has passed its peak. They have predicted that a period of decline and disintegration will soon occur.
EDUCATION is the basic process in civilization. Education in this broad meaning refers to all the processes by which the accumulated stocks of customs, skills and knowledge are made available to each generation. It includes not merely “book learning” but “LEARNING HOW TO BEHAVE LIKE HUMAN BEINGS.”Historians believe that a serious failure or interruption in “LEARNING HOW TO BEHAVE LIKE HUMAN BEINGS” would cause a rapid decline or collapse of civilization.
In this period of history, the appearance of the MAN’S MORAL CONCEPT” on the horizon of education is the God-sent doctrine of saving man and his civilization. The Old One has become of age and is now ready to go to its doom. The Man’s Moral Concept is the only Concept in the world today that teaches man “HOW TO BEHAVE LIKE REAL HUMAN BEINGS.” General Moncado, the author-receiver of this wonderful doctrine is also a God-sent teacher and Master of the coming New Civilization.
Since 1925, General Moncado has been educating the world through his own people with the principles of Morality expressing that MAN AND GOD ARE EQUAL as postulated in his famous MAN’S MORAL CONCEPT.
This doctrine is something like a covenant or an agreement, or a proposal of Peace through equality between God himself and the people of this world.General Moncado, acting as the prophet, submitted it through the medium of his race in order to establish the everlasting Peace and understanding between man and God here on earth. Now is the time to learn this doctrine while the Master of Morality is still here and the School he has created is still open.There will be a time when this school of Morality will be closed perhaps for a reason. It is better to learn it from the Master himself than from his students.
The Stone Which The Builders Of Civilization Rejected
Before Jesus was born, the people of this period of history were confused about their religious convictions. They have lost their original faith in the name of God, the Almighty God of their fathers. To these people, the name of God has no value at all. When one speaks of His name, he is accused of blasphemy and is subject to be stoned before the eyes of the public. This form of confusion brings not only uncertainty of their future relation with God but invites diverse forms of psychic disorder as well as moral and spiritual breakdowns and decays.
Such was the condition of the people of God before Jesus was born, and the same condition also exist today in our present civilization. Men, in whose hands the destiny of our civilization is entrusted do not know which way to turn. They do not know which is the way of the devil and which is the way of God.
What had happened in Jesus Christ time is also happening today. This confusion also leads to only one thing, a moral and spiritual disintegration.
Today, men, the builders of civilization, are uncertain of their approach to God because of the many unusual happenings which are now taking place all over the surface of the earth. Their faith and reliance in the Supreme Being are steadily going downward from bad to worse. Under this condition, men, are easy victims of the devil’s conception of life, life stained with vices, the evils and sins of this civilization.
Consequently, each descending step brings men closer to the works of darkness which are identified today in the Man’s Moral Concept as vices, “all forms of vices which are destructive to man’s physical fitness.” Satan’s conception of life on earth is rich in vices and full of evils and sins. These vices or evils invalidate man’s claim of his Creator. The source of these vices, evils or sins are invented by men who are against God. They have created these evils only to destroy the Master of Light, who is identified to day as the Master of Morality, Equi Frili Brium, the Christ in His present form. Based on the philosophy of General Moncado, “Moral is God. God is Moral. Moral is man and man is God.”
It is a universal belief that God loves all His creations because they are direct manifestations of His wisdom and power, authority or divine supremacy. But few if any, today, believe that God has a special love for man. God loves man because man possesses His sacred image and likeness. Also few if any, believe that God wants man to preserve this image and likeness for him here on earth. His reasons for wanting man to preserve his image and likeness are obvious because “Man is God’s human mechanism in His wisdom. Because without man on earth there is no God on earth.”
Divinely, by destroying this image and likeness here on earth, we are also destroying God here on earth because man is the only creature made in His image and likeness who worship Him. By looking at a man we are looking at God. When Philip asked Jesus that he wants to see the Father; Jesus answered, “Have I been so long time with you, and yet hast thou not known me, Philip? He that hath seen me hath seen the Father…” (St. John 14:9) There is no doubt that the image and likeness of Jesus was the exact image and likeness of Christ the son of God that was in Him. In other words, Jesus was the physical or the material man and Christ was God the spiritual man.
General Moncado’s Mission was and still is to revive, to serve, and to convince his fellow beings about the true doctrine of Our Lord Jesus Christ which is the Man’s Moral Concept. This concept is a divine and blessed interpretation of “I and my Father are One.”
