Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

 

What is the El Shaddai DWXI Prayer Partners Foundation International? Why was it established?

 

The El Shaddai DWXI Prayer Partners Foundtion International is a member of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement of the Philippines. It is a non-stock, non-profit organization duly registered in the Securities and Exchange Commission. It wa organized in 1984, primarily, as an institution where I could channel my tithes and donations derived from my real estate business and other companies to support the religious activities of various Catholic charismatic renewal communities and some projects of charitable organizations. Eventually, it has been used by God to help the Catholic Church in the spreading of His Word - the Good News of Salvation of the Lord Jesus Christ, our Living God and Savior - based on a layman's understanding and experiences.

 

 

What does the word El Shaddai mean?

 

El Shaddai is a combination of two Hebrew words: "EL" which means God, and "Shaddai" which means Almighty; thus El Shaddai is translated as "God Almighty" (Genesis 17:1;35:11, NIV). It is one of the seven Covenant Names through which God the Father, Creator of heaven and earth, revealed Himself to the Israelites, His Chosen people. He is the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. He is the All-Powerful and Ever-Living god. He is the same yesterday, today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). He is "The God Who is More Than Enough." He is the Source and Provider of all our needs, and with Him, all things are possible.

 

 

What are the mission and vision of El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI?

 

Our mission is to share the Light of the Lord Jesus Christ, the Joy of our Salvation, and our faith in Him through our own personal testimonies of the power of His Word such as our conversion through repentance and deliverance from the bondage of sin and vices; the trasformation fron our old self-centered, destructive and confused lives to new victorious lives in Christ Jesus; and the healing of our broken relationships and physical ailments. Our aim is to let the people know that God is alive, that He loves and cares fo us and that He is willing to forgive us, heal our diseases, and deliver us from all our troubles if we repoent of our sins, turn away from all our wicked ways, and establish a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ Who shall set our hearts on fire with the love of God and neighbor.

On the other hand, our vision is to bring about a revival of the true Christian spirit in our Catholic faith, particularly among the El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI members and followers, and to raise up a true Christian family and a community of Spirit-filled, generous, loving, victorious, joyful, and united beleivers of God who care and share each other's burdens and blessings for the glory of God, our Heavenly Father El Shaddai as described in Acts 2:42-47.

 

 

What plan of action does the El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI undertake to pursue its mission and vision?

 

To pursue our mission and vision, we conduct fellowships and programs which are focused on the inspired proclamation of the Living Word of God and the life-testimonies of people whose lives have been touched be El Shaddai.

In line with this purpose, we utilize the modern tri-media technologies: television, radio, and print. In addition, community chapters abroad hold weekly prayer-meetings as a result of the enthusiasm of the prayer partners to share with others the El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI's Spirit of Faith, Love and Unity!

 

 

What is your religious affiliation? Where are you leading those people who have joined your community?

 

By religious affinity, I am a Catholic. Very clearly, I intend to stay a Catholic, or should I say, I am led and inspired to remain a light to the Catholic faith, as I am called to be. I do not pretend to know anything about my religion, for indeed I know nothing about it, except that through it, in Baptism, the Light of Christ Jesus has been handed down to me.

I may be the Servant-Leader of this Ministry, but I am not the one who leads these people; it is the Lord Who leads us. He is our True Shepherd and I am only one of His flock. Our calling is not to establish another religion but to help the Holy Roman Catholic Church evangelize the unchurched people, to spread the El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI "FLU" - Faith, Love and Unity - among the faithful, and to lead those separated brethen, who have joined us, back to the fold of the Church.

 

 

What is the proof of the calling of the El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI?

 

It is written in the Holy Bible that wherever and whenever the Lord Jesus Christ is being preached by those Whom He called, "the Lord work[s] with them and prove[s] that their preaching [is] true by the miracles [are] performed" (Mark 16:20).

Indeed, during our healing rallies and fellowships, people from all walks of life give their testimonies on how the Word of God touched their lives and worked miracles of healing and deliverance through their continuous listening to the Gospel broadcasts at the DWXI (1314 kHz) AM radio and by faithful attendance of our fellowships. The lame and the paralytic share how they stood up and walked; cancer patients and those afflicted with dreaded diseases recount their healing; drug addicts, lesbians and gays narrate their return to normal lives; victims of broken homes tell how their relationships were restored; and non-Catholics relate their religious conversion to this Catholic community.

I, myself, am a living proof of this. When I was scheduled for an open heart surgery at the Philippine Heart Center of Asia in 1978, God miraculously healed my ailment through His Living Word which I received in my hospital room through a nurse. Thus, the scheduled surgery was no longer necessary. This experience made me realize that God truly heals and saves those who put their trust in Him through His Word. And that Word of God is the Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:1-2, 14) Whom I preach before the millions of members and followers of El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI worldwide.

This great spiritual movement, El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI, is not the result of our own human efforts, wisdom, and holiness, but the work of the Almigthy God Who is always with us. It is written, "Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain" (Psalm 127:1). As St. Paul has testified, "My message and my preaching were nit with wise and persuasive words, but with a demonstration of the Spirit's power, so that your faith might not rest on men's wisdom, but on God's power" (1 Corinthians 2:4-5).

 

 

Who are the so-called servant volunteer workers? Why do they serve the Lord through the foundation?

 

They are those who have a personal experience of God's miraculous healing and deliverance, and whose lives have been transformed by the Lord Jesus Christ. Out of their gratitude to God, they came to our head office at Amorsolo to volunteer for any kind of work, without expecting monetary returns. They offered their time and talent for whatever way they could help in the Foundation. Since its establishment, this community has grown in number tremendously and has been blessed by the Lord finacially. We have now formed different ministries with specific functions and our volunteers have been given voluntary stipends for their transportation and cost of living allowances. They also now enjoy some health benefits.

 

 

What qualification have you set up for those who would want to serve God through El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI?

I have set up some basic qualifications for the servant-volunteer workers of the Foundation as follows:

  • They must be baptized Catholics and have been born again or renewed in th Spirit through El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI; their belief about the Holy Eucharist must be one with the Catholic faith.
  • They must be of good moral character and standing in the community and submissive to the authorities of the Foundation and the Catholic Church.
  • They must have a good record of service in the Foundation and compliance with its rules and guidelines for at least three years.
  • They must be completly delivered from any kind of vices such as gambling, smoking, drinking liquor, and illicit and or extra marital relationships.
  • They must be living peacefully and harmoniously with their respective spouses or families. (A certificate of Catholic Church marriage is required).
  • They must not have any pending case in court involving moral turpitude, adultery, divorce, malversation of funds, swindling, and the like.
  • They must be registered covenant-members of the Foundation for at least three years.

 

 

Where does the El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI draw its funds or resources?

 

In the early years of this ministry, its main source of funds came from the tithes and the mircle-seed-of-faith offerings of my real estate business and other companies. Since I learned about God's promises on giving or tithes and miracle-seed-of-faith offerings and put these principles into practice, God has been working finacial miracles in my life and blessed me tremendously. In my desire that people may also be blessed by the Lord and experience financial freedom and prosperity, I always boldly share in my preaching about the principle of giving of tithe and seed-of-faith offering. Tithe is the ten percent(10%) or one-tenth portion of our blessings or income which we receive from our job or business. We set this aside in support of the work of the Lord. In Malachi 3:10, God said, "Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food i My house. Test me in this, says the Lord Almighty, and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it." Seedof faith offering, on the other hand, is giving something out of our needs to a servant of the Lord or His instrument for a specific purpose. It is similar to the "handful of flour and a little oil" that the widow and her son gave to Prophet Elijah during a famine in Israel. Though that was their last meal, when the widow offered it to the prophet in obedience to the Word of the Lord, itbecame her seed-of-faith offering. The Lord saw the woman's faith and a miracle happened: her "jar of flour was not used up and the jug of oil did not run dry, in keeping with the Word of the Lord spoken be Elijah" ( 1 Kings 17:8-16). Like a seed which bears a hundredfold when planted, whatever seed-of-faith offering we give to Him, God will return to us the blessings a thousandfold accordig to His promises.

Now, prayer-partners continue to be faithful in voluntarily giving their tithes and seed-of-faith offerings to the Lord through this community beacause they have learned and proved to themselves that as they give, the Lord returns the blessings "a good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over" (Luke 6:38).

There are also some who voluntarily give their love-offering, which could be their time, talent, and part of their blessings, for the work of the Lord. It is a sign of their gratitude to the Lord for all the spiritual and meterial blessings that they receive from Him everyday, and an acknowledgement of His Lordship and Divine Providence (Genesis 8:20-22).

 

 

Where do the collection of tithes and offerings of the followers of the Foundation go?

The funds of the Foundation are being used in the expenditures of the following:

  • Our fellowships such as the weekly Family Appointment with El Shaddai held at the PICC-CCP Grounds or at the Quirino Grandstand, Rizal Park or wherever tha Lord leads us to celebrate; our Tuesday fellowship at the Cuneta Astrodome or at the Rizal Baseball Stadium; our daily fellowships at our main office in Amorsolo; diocesan rallies in different provinces; and some special Mass and healing rallies abroad.
  • The television and radio air time such as the delayed telecasts of our fellowships over IBC TV-13 and their live broadcasts and telecasts of some of our pragrams in the different radio and television stations all over the Philippines, in Hong Kong and Southern California, USA.
  • Printing of reading materials such as El Shaddai Bagong Liwanag Magazine (200,000 copies quarterly), El Shaddai Miracle Newsletter (50,000 quarterly), booklets, books and pamphelts which are all being given for FREE.
  • Reproduction and distribution of the audio and video tapes of radio and television programs of the Foundation which are being given and dirtributed to the different radio stations and our chapters worldwide for FREE.
  • Cost of living and transportation allowances and health benefits of our support staff and servant-volunteer preachers.
  • Parish Assistance Program: Forty percent (40%) of the total collections and donations during prayer-meetings of our parish-based chapters nationwide and abroad goes to their parishes. We also give donations to the parishes which requested financial support for their parish-related projects.
  • Outreach mission activities such as the establishement of new provincial formation coordinating centers (PFCCs), which act as extension offices of our main office in Makati, and new international chapters abroad.
  • The training and development seminars for our chapter coordinators and workers under the instruction of Rev. Fr. Anton T. Pascual and Rev. Fr. Sanny A. de Claro, El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI Spiritual Directors, for our servant-volunteer preachers under the tutelage of Most Rev. Bishop Teodoro C. Bacani Jr., Spiritual Director, Catholic Charismatic Renewal Movement of Manila, or his duly authorized trainors/lecturers; and for our support staff under the supervision fo Bro. Rey M.Vargas, Head of the Education, Training and Formation Ministry of the Foundation.

 

 

Does the El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI offer social services?

Yes, the El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI offers its members and followers, especially the poor ones, the following social services:

  • Medical and Dental services such as free medical consultations, and laboratory examinations and optical and dental services for a minimal fee. These are given through its Medical-Dental Clinic which is being supported benevolently by its pool of volunteer medical-dental doctors and personnel. The Clinic is a fruit of the tithes, miracle-seed-of-faith offerings and love-offerings or donations of its members and followers. Medicines are available at its pharmacy at factory prices.
  • Burial Assistance and Disaster or Relief Assistance during fire, flood, earthquakes, storm, lahar, and other calamities.
  • Free Legal Consultation or Advice through its pool of volunteer-lawyers.

 

 

What is your vision of the future of El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI in the next millennium?

 

Despite the tremendous growth of El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI, there is still much work to do. In this light, I have envisioned that an El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI prayer-meeting will be conducted in every parish in all parts of the Philippines - Luzon, visayas, and Mindanao.

If we come to know God in spirit and in truth, repent of all our sins, turn away from our wicked ways, and accept in our hearts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, peace and unity will reign in our hearts and minds. If this happens, peace and unity will prevail in our home. And from our homes, this will spread to our communities, and to our entire natio. Thus, not too long from now, a significant change will prevail in the Philippines. This is what the El Shaddai DWXI-PPFI "FLU" - Faith, Love, and Unity - is all about.
