KAKAMPI MO ANG BATAS

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “…Your sons and daughters will be given to another people while you look on in vain all day, and you will be powerless to do anything about it…” (Deuteronomy 28:32, the Holy Bible).

I WILL VOTE FOR NERI FOR THE SENATE: I will always join any movement to draft House of Representatives Makabayan block Congressman Neri Colmenares as a senatorial candidate. Compared to many of those aspiring to become senators, both in and out of the House, and compared to many who are now senators, Neri is greatly outstanding in serving the people.

Undeniably, he has authored many substantial pieces of legislation in the years that he had been in Congress, and has materially influenced the outcome of many House decisions towards uplifting the people’s welfare. Then, he had also pursued public interest cases before the courts and other tribunals, and had been successful in blocking many a pernicious governmental policy.

I am sure that Neri (I call him Neri on account of the little-known fact that we actually started working together in 2007, as we would have been colleagues in Congress at that time, except that God had other plans for me then) will once again rise to greater heights in serving the people if and when he becomes senator in 2016, or beyond. I wish Neri not just the best of luck in his Senate run, but God’s blessings as well!

DEATH AND DESTRUCTION FROM RAINS AND FLOODS: I have repeatedly written before about rains, floods and strong winds wrecking death and destruction in the county, just like what we have been experiencing in the last few days due to typhoons Egay and Falcon and the southwest monsoon. One hundred percent of the time, I would always warn that there are more of these deadly and destructive calamities that are to come.

And it is not just because of the regular changing of the seasons in the Philippines. My point has always been that, there will be more death and destruction coming from ferocious rains, rampaging floods, and strong winds, simply because we, as a nation, have stopped listening to God, and are no longer obeying His commands.

NATURAL CALAMITIES WERE FORETOLD BY JESUS: I will say the same thing again today: considering the current realization or occurrence of the Biblical prophecies about global warming and climate change in the whole world, there is no stopping the rains, floods, and winds, from repeatedly visiting us.

In fact, Jesus Christ, our God and Savior, gave a specific warning about these calamities, and what we should do to prevail against them, but we are indeed a nation who has forsaken God. Not only have we taken for granted Jesus’ warnings, we have also taken Him for granted. When will we ever learn?

OFWs GOING ABROAD, A CURSE FROM GOD: Now, there is a real possibility that the death sentence on Mary Jane Veloso, the Filipina who was sentenced to die in Indonesia on account of her having transported illegal drugs there, will be carried out soon (some news sources say, could be executed next week). If she ultimately gets killed, it will become yet another outstanding proof of the accuracy and truthfulness of Biblical prophecies.

In Deuteronomy 28:15 and 32, we are warned that if a nation no longer listens to God and no longer obeys His commands, its children, boys and girls alike, will be given to other nations (just like what is happening now to our overseas Filipino workers or OFWs), and parents and others in authority will not be able to do anything to help them when they face trouble. Again, when will we ever learn?
