MORE RAINS AND FLOODS TO COME: To understand why rains, floods and strong winds are wrecking death and destruction in the Philippines and many parts of the world nowadays, we must read Matthew 7:24-27 of the Bible, and see that Jesus Christ warned these calamities will come to anyone who no longer read the Bible and obey God’s commands. It seems unless we do what Jesus is asking us to do, more rains, floods and winds will come and destroy many.

“Thus in an eminent way she won the `crown of righteousness,’ [See 2 Timothy 4:8] the `crown of life,’ [See James 1:12; Revelation 2:10] the `crown of glory’ [See 1 Peter 5:4] that is promised to those who follow Christ….”
