Over Population Hoax, 12 Monkeys Agenda


This is a follow up article about my thought on Reproductive Health Bill...You can rename it, make it sound nice and necessary but it is still the same: Reduce the People of the World. In other words Genocides, ethnic cleansing,  eugenics, what have you? Planned Parenthood?
   Are we really over populated or are we really going to ran out of food supply? 
   Let us first consider over-population...There are roughly 7 Billion people in the world today. Let's take for instance the State of Texas, it is the second largest US state with 261,914 square acre (or seven trillion square feet) meaning we can fit around 1000 square feet for each individual. It is also enough to give each one of them a 32 ft. by 32 ft. of land space and we are just talking here about the state of Texas alone. So what over congestion are we talking about? 
   The problem is a single elite individual does not want to share just a piece of land for the poor lower caste. This planet is just not big enough for the greedy land grabbers. 

   Second, and the most controversial issue is; are we really on food shortage?     
   Earth as far as I know is design to recycle itself. As long as the sun is up there in the distance, our planet will regenerate...there is nothing really new that is ever created, King Solomon has said it before and science has proven that the same atom during Noah's time still continue to flourish up to this very moment. 

   Starvation happen because of greed. In fact, famine happens because of mismanagement and not about over population. How many times have we seen rotting and decaying food on warehouses like those hundreds of metric tons of rice from National Food Authority that gone into nothing because it had been  soaked in flood. 
   Are we on food shortage? Perhaps, but that's not because the planet can not produce but usually because of hoarding.
   People starves...but we have the technology to create weapon of mass destruction. Most poor families have no food on their table but we can send rover on Mars just to collect odd rocks. Millions of people have no house to stay but they can build large mansions, beautiful gold-laden cathedrals, and the lists of vanities can go on and on.

Eliminate the useless eaters
   World population ought to be controlled because food are scarce? 
   As far as I know, the obvious reason is that the Greedy Elite, megalomaniac few want the world for themselves. They believe that their genes alone have the right to continue to populate earth as the Super Aryan Race. 
   In the book The Impact of Science on Society by Bertrand Russell we  can read reasons why we need to cut the population because...there are so many redundant people...useless eaters...
“War, as I remarked a moment ago, has hitherto been disappointing in this respect, but perhaps bacteriological war may prove effective. If a Black Death could spread throughout the world once in every generation, survivors could procreate freely without making the world too full. There would be nothing in this to offend the conscience of the devout or to restrain the ambition of nationalists. The state of affairs might be somewhat unpleasant, but what of it? Really high-minded people are indifferent to happiness, especially other people’s.” – p116 – p117
“Gradually, by selective breeding, the congenital differences between rulers and ruled will increase until they become almost different species. A revolt of the plebs would become as unthinkable as an organized insurrection of sheep against the practice of eating mutton. (The Aztecs kept a domesticated alien tribe for the purposes of cannibalism. Their regime was totalitarian)” – p63


  Dismal Theorem of British economist Thomas Malthus (1766-1834), who said that growth in human numbers would eventually outrun the food supply.

   Malthus theorem is proven to be wrong. Two hundred years and Six Billion people later we are living longer and even healthier lives.  

   Our planet was design to sustain life. In fact, former inhabitants of the earth were giants. Dinosaurs became extinct because of external forces and never because of over population. If our planet had fed giant lizards before how much more today? 

The False Prophets

   In 1968, Dr. Paul Ehrlich's best-selling book, The Population Bomb, was published. In it, Ehrlich, a Stanford University professor of biology, warned: "The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970s the world will undergo famines – hundreds of millions of people are going to starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now. At this late date nothing can prevent a substantial increase in the world death rate. . . ." 
    In 1969 by Harvard University nutritionist Jean Meyer, who predicted that "food may at some time (20 or 30 years from now) be removed altogether as a limiting factor in population." 

   Did it happened? Ah Ha No! What they fail to see was the surpluses of food productions. 
After 1950, worldwide grain production increased steadily. From 1950 through 1975, this increase was in the range of 25% to 40% per capita. In the less developed countries (excluding Communist China), the increase was in the 13% range. Between 1950 and 1980, the world's supply of arable land grew by more than 20%, and it grew even faster in the less developed countries. From 1967 to 1977, the world's irrigated acreage grew by more than 25%. The price of seed, fertilizer, pesticides, and farm equipment also dropped in this period, in some cases by as much as half. In the 1980's, grain farmers all over the world suffered economic losses as a result of overproduction.  (source)

   The irony is, while there is over productions of food around this time also Media stories of famines keep the general public in line to Satanic agenda. They want us to believe that if we don't cut the population boom, we will soon starve. 
WE ACTUALLY NEED MORE PEOPLE
   Besides, did the expected over population happened? Well, there was in reality a decline of population...we actually need more people. 
   In fact, if the current birthrate of western nations would continue, the westerners will eventually die-out by 2050 and be replaced by Asians like me... who by the way they are trying to educate that we should also be pro-abortion. 
    Maybe they want Asians to die-out also. 

   When third-world countries Industrialized, the same fate of under population will eventually happen. Where do we get the human resource to fill the gaps? 

    This same food shortage drama is similar to Global Warming. They are nothing but scare tactics to control mankind.  There is no massive food shortage and Climate change. There are people who intentionally make these happening or they seems to appear happening. 

GLOBAL WARMING TOO?
   The major sources of carbon dioxide emissions are natural, most notably from termites, which contribute some 14 billion tons of carbon dioxide per year, compared to mankind's supposed output of five billion tons – in an atmosphere of five quadrillion tons. Mankind's contribution is less than one millionth of the total atmosphere.

   But what about the obvious? The answers are simply evil...

Does an Evil Elite Group Really Exist?
   It is not easy to accuse anyone or even to prove innocence. In any Court of Law  they would require you to present evidence...The trial lawyer question would be: Is there really an on-going Global Genocides orchestrated by a Secret ultra rich group of people? Fact or Fiction?
   Perhaps the answers are found below--a giant monument shrouded in mystery. 


    The Georgia Guidestones in Elbert County, Georgia, USA.   Engraved in eight different modern languages on the four giant stones that support the common capstone are 10 Guides, or commandments  and a shorter message is inscribed at the top of the structure in four ancient languages' scripts: BabylonianClassical GreekSanskrit, and Egyptian hieroglyphs. That monument is alternately referred to as The Georgia Guidestones, or the American Stonehenge.

   No one knew the true identity of the man or group of men who commissioned the erection of this occultic structure.  What we are told is that on June 1979 a certain R. C. Christian (obviously a pseudonym) visited Elberton Granite Finishing Co; and announced that he wanted to build an edifice to transmit a message to mankind. 
   He said that he represented a group of men who wanted to offer direction to humanity, the strange thing is, almost two decades later, no one knows who R. C. Christian really was, or the names of those he represented. Several things are apparent. The messages engraved on the Georgia Guidestones deal with four major fields: (1) Governance and the establishment of a world government, (2) Population and reproduction control, (3) The environment and man's relationship to nature, and (4) Spirituality.
   Here how it is exactly written in English:

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
4. Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
9. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
10.Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.


   If mankind would then observe and do as it command, guideline number 1 is the most chilling aspect for it would require trimming population from 7 Billion to 500 Million. So are you now wondering why there's too much campaign to depopulate the world? Leave room for Nature is obviously from the 1990s outcry of environmentalist.  Also very clear is the current move to create an International Criminal Court and a world government. 
   Number 9 says: seeking harmony with the infinite...again, a drive to change Judeo-Christian view of faith into a New Spirituality or New Age Movement.


Yoko Ono, the widow of John Lennon, was recently quoted as referring to the American Stonehenge, saying: "I want people to know about the stones ... We're headed toward a world where we might blow ourselves up and maybe the globe will not exist ... it's a nice time to reaffirm ourselves, knowing all the beautiful things that are in this country and the Georgia Stones symbolize that. "

   So expect, in days to come man-made catastrophes like earthquake and tsunamis...or false famines or virus attacks. All these to keep the Georgia Stones Commandment.  

   
  The symbolical movie 12 Monkeys should warn us what the Satanist are planning.

Cryptic Symbols of London Olympic 2012

Revelation 13:8 All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast--all whose names have not been written in the book of life belonging to the Lamb that was slain from the creation of the world.

The Bible has told us not to be ignorant from evil schemes, to be as gentle as dove but wise as the serpent. Being too naive these days could mean life and death. Remember all it takes to fall is one ignorant bite from a forbidden fruit...
   I am already expecting that most of you will probably just shrugged off  what you are about to read but let me remind you, that these are serious stuff. These concerns you and me. Your family and friends. We need to be aware what is really happening right before your eyes. If these article sounds alien to you, then I suggest that it's about time to keep up...You are being sacrifice to the devil without you even knowing.

   I'll show you that there is too much Esoteric agenda inside recent 2012 Olympic ceremonies. Of course, I assume that you knew basic pagan ritual embedded on Olympic games aside from the ancient Mt. Olympus  connections. We are not going to dabble on that but on it's relevancy in our time. This is going to be a long complicated topic but I'll try as much as I can to give you just the basic and relevant clues that you need to watch out. 
   Remember how Hitler introduce to us the five rings of Olympics? NO? Maybe we can discuss that later too...how the World War II begun...
   You thought the ceremony was entertaining, well better think again...there is too much Satanic ritual being flash right before your eyes. Here are secrets in plain sights:

THE SAVIOR HAS COME
    I'm sure most of the Olympic Committee and participant does not know that they are actively participating in a Grand Scale Satanic Ritual. So let us pray for them and don't accuse them all too quick. That's basically how the world works anyway...Nearly all of the people of the world are under the sway of the Evil one...even the Queen. Just like you and me.
   The New World Order has just announce that Vulcan (The False Christ) is coming. It is now here. The people cheers and welcome his descent to earth from heaven with the Queen. Disguised as James Bond, a spy and a hero. There was no resistance from the whole world...they welcome him open arms, with clapping, psalms and awe.  We marvel at the beast again...

Royal Mint Commemorative Coins

   Pagan had always compared Jesus with Vulcan as a Savior of mankind but to those of us who are aware, Vulcan is more similar to Satan than with Our Lord and Savior. So, the New Age Religion had just introduce the false christus.



   Vulcan fell to the earth, as well as Lucifer. Agent 007, the man that fell, and where did Vulcan landed? Check your Mythology please...On an island inhabited by Cyclops. Later, he became the leader of the cyclops. Just like these:



THE MOTHER OF HEAVEN AND HIS SON
   Nope, we are not talking about Mary and Jesus here. That's what the False Religion has been trying to inculcate on our mind since they appeared and overshadow Christianity...(we will tackle this on future items...)
  Her highness namesake Queen Elizabeth I, also had a secret agent by the name of John Dee. In the 1500s during the Queen's reign, Dee serves as Her highness consultant. He is a sorcerer and expert in Black Magic. (google him he is not that secretive about his Satanic faith) 


   Was it insignificant, that John Dee was represented this time around as James Bond? Let us examine the famous signature of John Dee taken from archives...


   Surprise?! He is the original Agent double O seven. Well he adopted this signature from his expertise in Algebra, Black Magic and of course no other than Tubal Cain...The Master Masons or the Third Degree of the Ancient Illuminati. The Bible also tell us who is Tubal Cain.
  Zillah also had a son, Tubal-Cain, who forged all kinds of tools out of bronze and iron. Tubal-Cain’s sister was Naamah. -- Genesis 4:22
THE MASTER FORGER



The Giant Spermatozoa
   The Seed of Satan has finally came to earth...from the burning furnace of hell...Nations, Tribes, and tongues have finally witness the coming of...
    Vulcan! The God of Fire.


   Was it by chance how the Olympic Ring was forge and turns into a ONE BIG GIANT SPERM? 
   Ta-dah!!! Applause Mankind, your father the devil has come in flesh. 

   Jesus said:  
You are from your father The Devil, and the desire of your father you are willing to do; from the beginning he has been murdering men and does not stand in the truth because there is no truth in him; whenever he speaks a lie, he speaks from what is his, because he is of falsehood and is also its father. -- John 8:44 (Aramaic in Plain English Translation)
   The opening verse of this blog can testify on this...that "All inhabitants" of the earth will actually worship the beast. Yes, that is not a typo error, it says "all"...not a few hardcore Satanist, not just your neighbor, not just USA or China...but all Nations of the World, Yes my dear no exception including Philippines...

  Two Thousand and Twelve the time has come!!! The Serpent seed had impregnated the woman.  I just wonder who it's going to be? 

   
   Wait a minute...Maybe we missed something here, because the Satanic Ritual affirms that Vulcan was already forge...he is Risen...


   The Vulcan Rain or should I say "Vulcan Reigns" ? 

   Could Mary Poppin be a clue also? That like her, the Anti-Christ has came like a nanny to a cold Banker's unhappy family. Solving the financial crisis or distorting it? But we saw more than a dozen Mary...Poppins? Minions of the devil... chasing the children dreams away? I like to congratulate the creative mind of these choreographers...they can translate very well the evil agenda. 


    As I have pointed out before,Satanist love to use detail symbolism so perhaps I'll be needing further research, and more long hours since my computer are too slow watching the entire video of the ceremony or ritual. The following reminder had put my research on hold for now, as told by the most influential Conspiracy Theorist, David Icke:  

"Their medium is the language of symbolism, Symbols are electromagnetic information fields that are encoded with information related to what the symbols represent. These symbols can attach to our own electromagnetic fields and psyche when we give them our unknowing attention - energy flows where attention goes.
"The Olympic Stadium is strategically placed on the earth-energy grid to tap into the immense London and British power centres and this is why Glastonbury Tor, one of the most significant earth-vortex points in the UK, is a centrepiece of the opening ceremony. The microcosm (the model of Glastonbury Tor in the Olympic stadium) draws in the energy from its macrocosm. It is an expression of the holographic principle of 'as above, so below'. This is how symbolism works."
    Now in terms of symbolism the obvious is the Stadium itself...a Giant Wedjat...or the Eye of Horus...
   I can't find better photo with the right angle to show you how the wedjat was replicated in London...but on pics below I think you can trace what I mean...

Compare it on an Egyptian version of Wedjat and on another aerial view...

   Basically the Sperm is very prominent. 

AND YOU SHALL BE CURSE
   There is another symbology that is quite creepy, it gives me chill. A blatant and arrogant display of their plan for everyone. 


   Well they claim this Sequence is a Tribute to Harry Potter...this is suppose to be Valdimort...well it is not a clever disguise and had double meaning...it looks more like an Angel of Death...

   Now a close up look on the floor...

   Understand the double meaning? They said they are sleeping and dreaming. Children caught unaware. Who? Could it also mean biological attack as the death angel wave his scepter? Why nurses and hospital bed to commemorate a good book? Why not the positive scene of Harry Potter instead, if there is. 
   I'm sure there are other Occult symbols you had discover more than I do...like the Broken Cross, or a.k.a Peace Sign picture below, that like I do had send you shivers if you know their occult connection...and was chronicled to us as future plan of The Satanist...



   Now are you still too naive or even idiot like Mr. Bean...watching but not really understanding the gravity of the situation?


   By the way Rowan on this scene above together with London Symphony Orchestra is playing Chariots of Fire. Aren't we bombarded with so much Fire from hell already? 

   Satan is very much into detail...he wants everything perfect...there must be no mistake up to microscopic detail, so people can equate all of these to the Supreme Deity. His coming must replicate the Coming Messiah. Satan badly need the worship and adoration...he thinks that if he can gather more than enough energy, he can finally surpass the Godhead. 

   The Olympic spirit has just done that...a Burnt offering where people was the celebrated sacrifice. 





































Cold, Sweat, and Paint...

Let me see if I can come up with something...I feel that my brain neuron isn't 100% functional yet. On my forth day under antibiotics for my cold. I feel lighter yet there is no more runny nose.  
   Saturday, August 25, I still have bouts of jolting pain but I have already compromise my service for a Face Painting show for a 7 yrs old girl birthday party. The weather isn't on my side this time...by noon time there was down pour. We had sunshine the past days but how do you explain a very sudden change of mood? Chemtrail spraying? Anyway, I don't want to think about it for now...I need to focus, I have work...I was praying while traveling..."Father, if it is your will then pour your blessing on me."
     Last night, I was shaking and chilling, probably a forty...Yet God allows me a window of strength to fill my duties. My wife was worried that I caught a Dengue fever but the worst thing is my mother's thought that I caught leptospirosis  because of overstaying on the flood while fixing our garden. I can't allow those negative thoughts to distract me now. 
     I have a party to attend...  
    The venue was hard to find...it is just in Sta. Rosa City, only about half an hour ride but it took me an hour and a half. I was disassociated and familiar roads became unfamiliar at that time. Thanks the heavy rain had turn to trickle when I finally reach my destination. Fortunately again, the celebrant was from a known family here in Laguna so I was easily cued to their home.

   It's the hardest face painting experience I ever had...I was fighting fever and trying to entertain the kid as well. Worried that my nose would add to the burden but it seems I was instantly cured from runny nose. Prayer granted, but next time I should be more specific because I didn't asked for the fever to leave me too. 
    So I didn't focus on the task, I mean I set my mind that this is an artwork that I always enjoy doing. I don't want to be label as a bad face painter, so in my best effort I did their faces in the best I could. Well, I guess the organizer was satisfied anyway, he gave me a TIP. 
    There was a Photo-booth nearby so I work fast...I don't know, but each time there is a Photo booth I always match my phase with the computers  printing. 
   After about 4 hours the party ended, exhausted but thanks I wore heavy jacket that gave me sweat on my face. It reminds me of God's word that man's face need to sweat. Now, it has proven to me again how true was God's word. When a man's face sweat it gives relief and it is beneficial to the soul as well. I have to look for that verse one of this day...

   And this reminds me that I didn't really have heavy exercises lately. Sitting in front of the computer for long hours, painting, and the only heavy manual labor that I was used to was kneading dough for empanadas. I have not fulfilled my promise of biking around the neighborhood. 

   That probably weakens my immune system...so it's not dengue or leptos but a stationary lifestyle...
   Well, I was sure it was the heavy manual labor while cementing the road with our neighbor...probably because I stress myself those past days. The stagnant water that was left out by alternating storm needed to be fix. So with the neighborhood guys we fill the pathway with about foot of gravel and soil and the next day we poured cement. For a longest time I haven't really stretch my lungs that far. 

   I needed more of that...

   By the way, I still manage to paint under fever and cold; actually it has given me the time to paint...and here it is...

Just My Thought on RH Bill


Reproductive Health Bill? Why spend money on reducing human resources? Give employment instead and people will be too busy making babies.



   The Bible had always herald increase in population as blessings from God. Not even once was it told that over population was a sign of curse. In fact, its the other way around. Giving birth is always a blessing. There shouldn't be unwanted pregnancies... what can go wrong when it is done in love and respect? 

   I really can't understand why they are pushing birth control...Why control human population? Our greatest source of income comes from human resource. Look at develop countries, they are importing people to work for them. Our much sought export are Overseas workers. More of these means more dollars...more thinking brains.

   We can also fill the population back log of nations like Canada and Japan. Look what happened to them, they have more older people and fewer youngster to replace them.

   God alone can decide who lives and who dies. Think about the past calamities, earthquakes, flood, tsunamis...they can reduce the population really quick. God will decide who will give birth and who will be barren. Think about it!!! 

   Give people employment then they will be too tired working and lesser time  making babies. Seriously, the ability to feed your children is the answer.
  Education, training, and employment are what we need...Studies shows that those people with bigger income had fewer babies and unemployment had more tendency of increase populations. 
   Why not meet the needs of people instead...growing population needs bigger and better resources. It would be much easier to expand and build if we have more people helping together.  
     Corruption is the problem not over population. 
   Why not divert the money for contraceptives on building resources and employment. More people means more work force, more armies, more helpers...more areas to cover. 
   The problem is population concentration. There are too many people in Metro Manila congesting...what we need is to spread out and conquer territories. Just what God said to His people to divide the land and conquer territories. 
   Give initiative to our farmers and better opportunities for them without leaving their provinces...it's about time to educate them that life is better where they are.

   Birth Control is a lame excuse for Government inability to respond to our basic needs. They can't give us food, shelter, clothing, and even education so they want us dead instead. 
   All of these need better leadership. A king who want lesser people under him is either crazy or greedy. Fight corruption and spread the blessings to everyone. 

   Birth control is not the answer to poverty, it just promote safe sex. 

   You know who worry much when our population booms? The ultra rich, they fear that the poor will overtake what they have. They had been advocating depopulation ever since. They want to annihilate the lower class who can over rule them.
   The Universe can always supply our need...but never our greed. 

THE LESSON OF MOSES BIRTH 
   This is what happened in Egypt long ago, they saw the Israelite growing fast so they order their Mid-wife to kill every babies born to an Israelite women. But still they grow in numbers....so Pharaoh made a drastic measure, he order all children 2 years old and below to be slaughtered. Luckily, these fave the way for Moses to be made prince of Egypt. 

   Fill the earth and subdue it!!! That's one of the earliest know command by God. The trouble with some is they can fill the earth but do not know how to subdue or replenish it. 
Genesis 1:28
New International Version (NIV)
28 God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground. 


   OH well, I'm not your legislator anyway, just saying what should be proper...so don't worry there will be lesser people in the future. 

THE CONSPIRACY OF PEOPLE REDUCTIONS
   I used to be an advocate of Family Planning, Plan Parenthood, and recently Reproductive Health but now after realizing there is an evil intent behind this act, I change my mind...read on the reasons behind my change of mind aside from the logic I have extrapolated above.

The Flood in Our Place (Video)

More or less two weeks now our neighborhood is still flooded since Typhoon Gener hit. Fortunately for me and my family we are on higher grounds so the flood just lasted overnight but this footage will show you just a block away from us the flood will probably stay a little longer. 
     During typhoon Ondoy the water last over a month...and we hope things will be better this time. 
   I was deeply burden in heart for the children's education since nearby schools are also submerge...so I volunteer to teach the kids around my neighborhood. On my third day now and I already feel fatigue because I under estimated the task of teaching multi-level. I conduct different activity for the elder kids and the younger students. I was surprise that most of the elder kids still can't properly subtract and multiply. And the younger ones had a hard time writing. 
   Anyway, they said the regular class will resume Monday...they would probably divide the classes and use those classroom on higher floors. I don't know what will they do to those evacuees.   
   So this video will show you the actual situation here, taken by a concern citizen...

No Gold in London but Wait...Cheer Up!!!

The London Olympic campaign may not be that fruitful for Filipino Athletes but Hey! Philippine Sports fanatic still have something to celebrate. 

   Not so many of us here knew about these young Filipinas who had recently made history.  

   The story of these young girls triumph is touching that I must share them to you here even if you probably heard them from various sources...I am talking about The Manila team that competed in the Big League Softball World Series

   Almost unable to compete in Kalamazoo, Michigan for lack of financial support...they have to take the cheapest flight--which means they have to endure a 9 hour stopover in Japan and another 11 in Hawaii. 
   These long journey may have heavily taxed the girls so they lost their first two games. 

   But thanks to Ana Santiago, the team’s coach who comes across as tough, but with a quirky sense of humor. Santiago told the young women to “talk to your errors and tell your errors that they will be here in the meantime”. 

   The next day they won a 14-2 victory over Westchester, California. 

   Earning the respect of their opponent after winning 7 games in a row.

  “They deserve (the title) – played hard, they fought back (from the early losses),” Darryl Lee, manager of the California team, told Michigan Live. “They lost the first two games and won seven in a row. They stayed hot all the way through.”

   These girls are inspiration of courage and determination. They were the runner-up team in 2008, 2010 and 2011.


They deserve a victory parade in Manila – although that would probably be hard to do right now. In fact, Team Manila apparently wasn’t expecting one. Instead, they dedicated their victory to the nation and the victims of the flood. Maybe there could still be a parade after the city recovers from the flood. These young women certainly deserve a bit more media attention for the courage they showed. -- Benjamin Pimentel (Inquirer News)
CHEERS! Team Manila... we are so proud of you.

Helen Up Next, Learn from Noah

"These things I have spoken to you, so that in Me you may have peace. In the world you have tribulation, but take courage; I have overcome the world." -- John 16:33

Be of Good Cheers!!!

   If you think reading the Bible is a waste of time, think again. It take years to build the ark, the same way, that God test our determination and faith. One nail at a time, one verse at a time and soon we have faith enough to carry all the living creatures in the world.   




   This article must at least start with a good note. A lot of our Countrymen are still recuperating from the devastation of Gener and it's aftermath. Sometimes I pity the position of PAGASA for being the one to bring us the bad news most of the time...but someone has to say it anyway. 
   Up ahead is the 8th typhoon to test our faith...don't worry if you fail to exercise your faith the last time...there are still about 16 more brief case to open. So deal or No deal?
   If I were you, NO DEAL. God holds the future and we can rely on that even if the future seems blurry. 


   So here was the forecast of what will happen on Philippine skies this coming week:


Typhoon HELEN Forecast Track


Coordinates: 16.8N, 129.9E
Forecast Tracks:
(1) 550 km East Northeast of Casiguran, Aurora - Monday
(2) 410 km Northeast of Casiguran, Aurora - Tuesday
(3) 300 km North of Aparri, Cagayan - Wednesday
Movement Speed: 11 kph West Northwest
Strength: 55 kph near the center
Rain Volume: 10-20 mm/hr (Heavy to Intense)
Distance to Land: 720 km East of Casiguran, Aurora



Please visit PAGASA DOST Project NOAH to monitor rain probability and level of river or stream in your area.

   Those at the evacuation center might stay a little longer there in the meantime. Some area are still flooded and in fact, the water is still rising. 

   Remember our reactions into anything will reflect the kind of faith we had. Noah may appear silly during the construction of the Ark but later we realized some crazy stuff may actually save us. 
   If you think reading the Bible is a waste of time, think again. It take years to build the ark, the same way, that God test our determination and faith. One nail at a time, one verse at a time and soon we have faith enough to carry all the living creatures in the world. 
   Did I just say it all over again?

Comfort in Sufferings

   

1 Peter 3:16

King James Version (KJV)
16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ.
   Sometimes we are reviled and hated for standing in our faith. The accuser is always on the look out for hole in our faith where he can insert discouragement, resentment, and fatigue. 

   Having enough faith does not guarantee that we will not suffer...contrary to that, we are more prone to rejections because of our faith in God. In the meantime, we must remember that  the dominant spirit in this world is evilness. We can not be too comfortable in this temporary life.  In fact, we must rejoice whenever we suffer because of Christ. 

Consider this passage from 1 Corinthians 4

9 For I think that God has displayed us, the apostles, last, as men condemned to death; for we have been made a spectacle to the world, both to angels and to men.
10 We are fools for Christ's sake, but you are wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are distinguished, but we are dishonored!
11 To the present hour we both hunger and thirst, and we are poorly clothed, and beaten, and homeless.
12 And we labor, working with our own hands. Being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we endure;
13 being defamed, we entreat. We have been made as the filth of the world, the offscouring of all things until now.


   Daily doses of temptations and trials are spices that we must live with. To think that by observing all the Laws and Commandment of God will save us from physical suffering is false security. Anything that lead us to focus more on the material is not from God...

   Faith, is not a faith unless it is being tested and put to practical used. A chunk of coal will never be a diamond if it does not undergo extreme process of heat and pressure. Gold must pass the acid test to distinguish its carats. 

   There is a false notion that a person is more blessed because he is wealthier and healthier...comparing your situation to another Christian this way is dangerous. It can lead a person to false hope and might overwhelm us when surges of heavy trials emerges in front of us. 

   It does not mean that if your brothers and sisters in Christ can give more offering to God, is that they are more blessed or near in God's heart. 

Hebrews 11:1, “Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.”

   We have the confidence to follow God even if we are suffering terminal diseases. We trust in God even if we have little food on our table. We rely on God's salvation even if we are stranded in the middle of a typhoon. We hope in God even if we have limited resources. 

   Faith always requires waiting and patience...our trust that God will fulfill His promise no matter what. Even if it seems a dead-end road, we have the assurance that God will find a way...He will fulfill because He said so:
God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill” (Num 23:19)
    Faith needed some exercises too. Like our physical body that must be fitted with rigorous activities our spiritual self needed some test of faith too. Test or exams determines our level of faith. Do you think you deserve an "A" on your spiritual life? How do we measure that faith without an examination...without actual test, faith only rest inside our head. 
   Faith will only become real in our heart when we had suffered.

   Whatever comes out of you is your level of faith. Meaning whatever you confess with your mouth is your faith. 
  What comes out of your mouth during your time of distress? Do you curse the situations you are in or do you give encouragement to people who are breaking down? 

Hebrews 12:1 Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,2 looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. 


While we wait for Jesus Christ return, there will be sufferings...but we can stand firm on the world of God who said that those who endure will be greatly rewarded. 

 Check assurance written for us from 1 Peter
3:14 But even if you should suffer for righteousness' sake, you are blessed. "And do not be afraid of their threats, nor be troubled."
 
4:12 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;
13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
14 If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.
15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a busybody in other people's matters.
16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter.
...
19 Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.



   Also, Suffering is not just a one time event. Suffering sometimes lingers and persistent. It is like planting crops...after working hard and patiently waiting for harvest time, swarms of locust attack your field and devour everything. You had enough faith, to be discourage so you plow the field again and start the process all over again...but once again, the locust came and ate everything.
   Now, the question...will you still have the same amount of faith the third time? Your response on this is the level of faith you had. 

Read the life of Job once again, do you think you can match this person's faith?
