LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God…” (John 1:12-13, the Holy Bible).

“AMEN” IS A NAME OF GOD: Did you know that the word “Amen”, with capital letter “A”, is actually one of the Names of Jesus, our God and Savior? Yes it is, and this is a primary doctrine that is being taught to the members of the “Anak ng Diyos Kadugo Ni Kristo” (Children of God Blood Kin of the Christ) Church during its weekly Gatherings for Praise, Worship and Thanksgiving.

This doctrine—that “Amen” is one of the Names of Jesus—is founded on the Bible itself, particularly its Revelation 3:14, which reads: “To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation…”

That is the reason why every member of the “Anak ng Diyos Kadugo Ni Kristo” (AND KNK) Church are taught to say “Amen” with reverence and awe, because they are actually invoking God’s presence every time they say that Name. Saying “Amen” is not only meant to convey conformity to a prayer, or to what is being said in one’s presence, but is actually meant to call on God to be with a person at that particular time.

“CHILDREN OF GOD” MARRIED “CHILDREN OF MEN”: In its book of doctrines called “Mga Batayang Aral” (or The Foundational Teachings), AND KNK also teaches many things. Here are some of them: AND KNK is a church whose name is mentioned in the Old Testament of the Bible, particularly in the Book of Genesis, the very first book of the Bible, in its Chapter 6, verses 1-4.

That chapter of Genesis talks about what appears now as the original “children of God” coming down from heaven and taking humans as their spouses. It is a fascinating revelation from that chapter that the “children of God” were enamored by the beauty of the children of men on earth. This fascination with beautiful human beings compelled the “children of God” to come down from heaven and marry humans.

The union between the “children of God” and the “children of men” gave rise to the giants, the intellectuals, and the rich and noble men on earth. In fact, the Bible talks about the children arising from this union of the “children of God” and the “children of men” as becoming heroes, famous the world over.

HOW DOES ONE BECOME A CHILD OF GOD? But, it is not only from the Old Testament that the AND KNK is mentioned. Even in the New Testament, AND KNK is also mentioned, in much more chapters and verses, giving rise to the indubitable conclusion that AND KNK is a God-inspired or mandated or created Church, designed for a specific important purpose—to fulfill God’s work during the end times.

John 1:12-13 confirms who are to be called “children of God” in modern times. This part of the Bible says that those who accepted Him, those who believed in His name, are given the right to become “children of God”. “Children of God” derive their status as “children of God” not because of their desire, or of their effort or will, or by any other human act.

People become “children of God” because they are “born of God”. How does one become “born of God”? By undergoing the process laid down by the Bible itself. Consequently, it is important to know this process by which one can become a “child of God”. If this process, established by God Himself through His Bible, is followed, a person becomes a “child of God”. If not, a person remains to be a child of God’s enemy.
