KAKAMPI MO ANG BATAS

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… `For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, `plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future’…” (Jeremiah 29:11, the Holy Bible)

PROSPERITY AND WEALTH IN RP FOR FOREIGNERS ONLY: To those who are seriously monitoring the developments even in far-flung areas of the Philippines today, they cannot help but be amazed by the fact that even these once-remote places are now undergoing an unmistakable construction boom with beautiful, modern, and undeniably expensive edifices being erected all at the same time, indicating progress and economic prosperity. The only question of course is, do native Filipinos own these buildings?

The clear answer here is, no, Filipinos do not own the flashy buildings, because foreigners are the ones who own them or, even if Filipinos appear to be the owners, these men and women indubitably descended from foreign ancestors.

This was what we wrote on June 24, 2012: “The fact is that, domination of a country’s economy (not just the Philippines’) by foreigners has been actually written in the Bible, particularly in its Deuteronomy 28:15, 43-44."

-ooo-

CAN NATIVE FILIPINOS EXPERIENCE ECONOMIC PROSPERITY, TOO?

“What do these verses say? Deuteronomy 28:15 lays out the general prediction. It says: 'However, if you no longer listen to God or you no longer obey His commands, all of these curses will come upon you and overtake you…The foreigners who reside among you will rise above you higher and higher, but you will sink lower and lower. They will lend to you, but you will not lend to them…'"

“The question many are interested in right now is this: can ethnic Filipinos ever regain the Philippine economy for themselves so that, like the foreigners who live or reside among them, they, too, can become billionaires, in US dollars yet?"

“The answer is yes, they can, but they must realize that the first real step to economic wealth is sincere and true spiritual rebirth and transformation. The fact is that, many native Filipinos have tried almost everything to become wealthy, and they have been trying to do so over a long period of time now, to no avail (to use a cliché)."

CONDITIONS SO ONE CAN BECOME ECONOMICALLY WEALTH: I am convinced that, at this point, those without any foreigner’s blood running in their veins can try some Biblical prescriptions on how to become successful and prosperous, and see what will happen next.

The first verse that comes to my mind is Joshua 1:8 which says, “Do not let the Book of the Law depart from your lips, meditating on it day and night, and carefully following everything that is written in it. Then you will become prosperous and successful.”

The same message is actually echoed in many other parts of the Bible, notably Deuteronomy 28:1-14, Proverbs 3:1-2 and Matthew 6:33. All of these verses are conveying just one idea: if we will only be faithful in knowing God’s Word, and sincere in obeying His commands, prosperity will also come to all Filipinos, sooner or later.
