MANILA, Philippines – As the Members Church of God International (MCGI) celebrates its three-day (July 29-31) Pasalamat ng Buong Bayan (or Thanksgiving of God’s People), the #NationOfGodMCGI and two other hashtags trended on Twitter.
The #NationOfGodMCGI, #PasalamatNgBuongBayanMCGI, and #BlessedNationMCGI started trending as early as 5am, until they reached the number one spot in Philippine trends on the day each was scheduled to be used. Obviously, thousands of MCGI used the hastags to tweets their reasons and thoughts for thanksgiving as it marked their 2nd quarterly international thanksgiving to God.
MCGI’s Pasalamat ng Buong Bayan is celebrated every quarter of the year aside from their regular thanksgiving days every Saturday.
MCGI believes that offering thanksgivings and praises to God incessantly is a mark and an obligation of the true people of God. Bro. Eli Soriano and Bro. Daniel Razon preaches this in accordance and fulfillment of the the prophecy written in the book of Jeremiah 30:19-24 about the people of God that will be established in the last days.
19And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry: and I will multiply them, and they shall not be few; I will also glorify them, and they shall not be small.
20Their children also shall be as aforetime, and their congregation shall be established before me, and I will punish all that oppress them.
21And their nobles shall be of themselves, and their governor shall proceed from the midst of them; and I will cause him to draw near, and he shall approach unto me: for who is this that engaged his heart to approach unto me? saith the LORD.
22And ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
23Behold, the whirlwind of the LORD goeth forth with fury, a continuing whirlwind: it shall fall with pain upon the head of the wicked.
24The fierce anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have done it, and until he have performed the intents of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it.
