LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “…`Though I have been speaking figuratively, a time is coming when I will no longer use this kind of language but will tell you plainly about my Father’…” (Jesus, our God and Savior, in John 16:25, the Holy Bible)

HARRY ROQUE DISPLAYS CAPABLE LEADERSHIP AS “OMPONG” LASHED RP: If there was anyone who “profited” (if ever there is such a thing, really) from the damage and destruction that super Typhoon Ompong brought to Northern Luzon this past week, it would be no other than Presidential Spokesman Harry Roque. I mean, in the middle of Ompong’s wrath, Harry got a very prominent exposure from radio and TV stations nationwide as he anchored and directed, not only the gathering of the latest news about, but also the entire government’s response to, the calamity.

From where I was, it looked like Harry was the one who was discharging the duties and responsibilities of the President of the Philippines during those perilous moments---looking after, and inquiring on, our countrymen’s condition, and directing and guiding the efforts of different agencies and officials of government, to make sure that relief goods have been pre-positioned and ready for delivery any time, clogged roads could become passable right away, and travel remained unhampered.

Because Harry is a declared senatorial candidate for the mid-term elections in 2019, it was an awesome opportunity that was accorded to him by his having been placed in the center of the nation’s attention while strong winds, rains, and floods swirled around the affected areas. Our people indubitably saw a Harry Roque that was amply possessed with the capability to move the government to help those in need. Congratulations, Harry Roque. If you continue displaying this style of leadership, your senatorial bid is now a foregone conclusion!

PROOFS OFFERED BY JESUS TO PROVE HE IS GOD THE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT (VI): To those who are seriously studying the Bible, it could not have escaped their attention that Jesus, in John 17, made a very important disclosure about what, indeed, is the Name of God the Father. Jesus said that the Name given to Him, “Jesus”, is also the Name of the Father. What this clearly conveys is that Jesus is saying that He is truly the Father.

Here was what Jesus said in John 17:11: “Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one…” From this, it should be clear that the Name of the Holy Father is the same Name that was given to Jesus, and it is “Jesus”. The Holy Father’s Name is “Jesus”.

From the teachings of the Children of God Blood Kin of the Christ Church (or the AND KNK, Simbahang Anak ng Diyos Kadugo Ni Kristo, the Church  that Jesus put up in the Philippines to fulfil His end time work), it is made clear that what Jesus meant was this: because His Name and the Name of the Father are one and the same, it is true, as Jesus claimed in John 10:30, that He, Jesus, and the Father, are one. Meaning, Jesus is the Father, no more, no less!

COMPLAINTS AMONG NEIGHBORS MUST PASS THROUGH THE BARANGAY FIRST: Here is a question from Mary Grace Anduyan (marygraceanduyan@gmail.com) which was sent to batasmauricio@yahoo.com: “Good evening, Atty. Batas. I seek advice, if I have a right to file a complaint with the barangay against the people who have been throwing trash and other garbage along the sides of my house, near the door of that house.

“Our houses are just adjacent to each other. They say that they are placing their trash near their own house. I am not comfortable with this because there are times that their trash emits a foul smell, which reaches our house. I already informed them about this but they have been doing it repeatedly, causing damage to us already. What must I do? Can I file a case on this, Atty. Batas? Thank you…”

Here’s the answer from the LAWYERS IN THE LIGHT (Lawyers Instructed on Godliness, Humility, and Truth): Yes, you may bring a case on this issue of trash and garbage with the barangay, and this pursuant to Republic Act 7610, or the Local Government Code of 1991.

Under this law, all complaints by and between neighbors must have to be brought first with the barangay, for conciliation. If no conciliation is reached, the case can then be brought with the courts.
