LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “…The Lord will bring a nation against you from far away… like an eagle swooping down, a nation whose language you will not understand, a fierce-looking nation without respect for the old or pity for the young. They will devour the young of your livestock and the crops of your land… They will leave you no grain, new wine or olive oil, nor any calves of your herds or lambs of your flocks until you are ruined…” (Deuteronomy 28:49-51, the Holy Bible).

WEST PHILIPPINE SEA NOW A CHINA TERRITORY: No matter how the Aquino government denies it now, China has assumed complete control and possession of the Spratlys and of the whole of West Philippine Sea (or, as the totality of the area was called before President Aquino was sworn to office, the South China Sea). Effectively, the West Philippine Sea has become a Chinese territory.

Not only does China have possession, use, and control, of the islands and the waters in and around those islands, it is even asserting now exclusive ownership, use, and control of the air space above those islands and waters. Now, there is no country, nor any person, who can as much as go near the disputed territory without China’s permission and consent.

How did this happen? Why have we suddenly lost the entirety of the Spratlys and the whole of the West Philippine Sea? How did China manage to enter the area virtually unmolested and unchallenged by the Philippines and the other countries which have staked the same claim of ownership of the islands and the waters around them?

CHINA’S INVASION OF RP IS CLEAR, BUT WHAT IS PNOY DOING? This is invasion, no more, no less. One would think that President Aquino and the other officials of his government would fall on top of one another to fight what is a clear declaration of war against our country and a shameless usurpation of our territory, with the same use of brute force that China brazenly employed against us.

Yet, our President and his officials have surprisingly contented themselves with mere diplomatic protests, lame note verbales, and a useless invocation of the authority of an international tribunal whose decisions China will clearly not recognize.

Why did this happen? Does this have to do with the fact that Chinese blood runs through the veins of much of our ranking officials? Or could this be because of the realization that, at this point in time, China is simply powerful and mighty and, with its vast resources, it is in fact already in control of our economy and of the day-to-day lives of Filipinos?

CAN FILIPINOS REPULSE CHINA INVASION? This is painful but, is there anything that native Filipinos can do about this? Militarily and with the use of force, maybe not! But then, it is clear that whatever China is doing had been foretold and warned about a long time ago, and that, if we want to oppose and ultimately defeat it from its invasion of our country, we should seriously heed the warning.

In Deuteronomy 28:49 of the Bible, a nation like us which professes belief in God is warned: listen to, and obey the commandments of, God. Otherwise, if we do not listen to God anymore, if we no longer obey His commands, He will send against us a nation from far away, a fierce nation which has no respect for the old and the young, who will destroy all of us.

How do we fight this predator-nation? We should all start listening to God and obeying His commands once again, as a people. We should return to praying within and with our families, reading and understanding the Word of God together. We should start obeying God all over again. If even a small group of Filipinos would only do all these, we will be blessed once again and regain our respect and integrity as a people of God!
