LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… All these curses will come on you. They will pursue you and overtake you until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the Lord your God and observe the commands and decrees he gave you…” (Deuteronomy 28:45, the Holy Bible).

PACANA’S UNREAD SPEECH BEFORE JURY ADVOCATES: I read with awe the speech that Cebu accountant Danilo Pacana intended to deliver—but which, clearly, he was prevented from delivering under still mysterious circumstances—in a meeting of a group advocating the jury system of trial in the Philippines.

At the very least, the speech was awesome in its details, and I could very well guess that tremendous efforts were exerted in preventing the delivery thereof, in the presence of media yet. Why, it was all about a dark and top-level conspiracy to avoid the payment of trillions of pesos in taxes to the government!

What can I say, now that I have read that aborted speech? Nothing, because it left me angry and frustrated that these things are even happening in our country. It also reminded me of Deuteronomy 28:43-44 of the Bible, which talk about foreigners lording it over among natives, economically, socially, and politically. Well, don’t foreigners already own us?

STEEP PRICE FOR FILIPINOS TO PAY: In the Bible, we have been warned that there is a very steep price to pay if we no longer listen to God and if we no longer obey His commands. This steep price is suffering under foreigners in our own native land, something that is already happening furiously, right here in our own country.

The Bible says foreigners whose language we cannot understand, and who are fierce-looking and without pity for the old and the young among us natives, and who come from a nation from far away, will come and usurp our land, its produce, and our animals, even as they lay siege to our cities and throughout the country.

The Bible also specifically warns that foreigners will come and become our leaders in government. They will be the ones to lend to us, and we will not lend to them. They will enjoy economic boom, while we become poorer and poorer in our own nation.

GOD’S CURSES WILL DESTROY THE FILIPINO NATION UNLESS… The most terrifying thing about all these is the promise of the Bible that all of these will happen until we all perish. In fact, the Bible is saying that God’s curses will come upon us, pursue us, and overtake us, until we are all destroyed.

The reason is that, we did not obey, we have not been obeying, and there is no chance we will be obeying in the days to come, the Lord our God, even as we failed to listen to His Word, the Bible, and obey all His commands.

So we are all doomed? Yes, we are all doomed, unless we turn to God once again, and listen to Him once again by reading His Bible all over again, and obeying everything that He has commanded us to. That is the only way to fight the curses which even now are destroying us. We who are weary must now make an effort to teach our children to read God’s Bible and obey His commands.
