LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… `everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash’…” (Jesus Christ, our God and Savior, in Matthew 7:26-27, the Holy Bible).

CLIMATE EXPERTS PREDICT DEADLIER RAINS AND FLOODS: Predictions and predictions are now being made to warn each and everyone of us that more destructive rains and more deadly floods are coming to the Philippines, but although many of them carry a scientific ring to them, they are hopelessly useless in enabling our people to avoid and to even merely cope up with the problem.

Unless and until we realize, right here and now, that rains and floods have Biblical dimensions which require looking into and adopting Biblical solutions, all these fire and fury from climate change and environment experts warning us of death and destruction through these twin natural calamities will not help anyone.

If our experts will only realize that rains and floods and even strong winds actually represent curses both from God the Father and the Son, as shown by different passages from the Holy Bible, then I am sure they will no longer ignore what this Book says about what should be done to avert the incoming death and destruction of many of us.

TWO PARTS OF THE BIBLE WHICH WARN AGAINST RAINS AND FLOODS: I will just cite two parts of the Bible which tell us that we are going to have deadly rains, floods and strong winds to prove my point. The first is the warning by Jesus Christ in Matthew 7:26 to 27, and the second is that found in Deuteronomy 28:15 in relation to Deuteronomy 28:23 to 24.

Here is what Matthew 7:26-27 says, quoting Jesus Christ: “…But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash.”

Note must be made of the calamities that Jesus promised to those who are called by Him as “fools” because they hear His Word and yet do not put them into practice—rains, streams rising (which means floods) and strong winds.

NATURAL DISASTERS ARE CURSES FROM GOD: On the other hand, Deuteronomy 28:15, in relation to Deuteronomy 28:22-23, more or less promise other kinds of natural calamities which are nevertheless equally deadly.

Deuteronomy 28:15 says: “However, if you do not obey the LORD your God and do not carefully follow all his commands and decrees I am giving you today, all these curses will come upon you and overtake you…”

Deuteronomy 28:22-23 has this to say: “The LORD will strike you… with scorching heat and drought… which will plague you until you perish. The sky over your head will be bronze, the ground beneath you iron. The LORD will turn the rain of your country into dust and powder; it will come down from the skies until you are destroyed…”
