L ast Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2009, this writer distributed during the 1,015th meeting of the Media Breakfast Club (MBC) of Los Angeles 30 copies of the three-page hardcopy of

A Biblical Vision Says the Philippines Will Lie in Fallow until 2016 and then Filipinos Will Build New Cities on Hills.

 

The “Biblical Vision of the Philippines” was published in the MabuhayRadio.com on Aug. 31, 2009.

 

Some MBC members actually laughed after they read the paper’s lead paragraph: “If we are to interpret the Bible, the Philippines will continue to be a nation of desolation, misery, despair and sadness until the prophetic 70 years would have elapsed. The 70-year period began in 1946 when the Philippines finally became a politically-independent country – after the United States restored its independence that it took away in 1898.”

 

An MBC member said that I wrote fiction, as “the Philippines is not a desolate nation, as it is one of the most-beautiful countries on Earth.”

 

Three days later (and 26 days after the article was first posted online), tropical storm codenamed internationally as “Ketsana” unleashed the deadly flooding of Metro Manila and some 25 other adjacent or nearby provinces. As the cliché says, “The rest is history . . .?” Several MBC members called this writer and they said the "Biblical vision about the Philippines" might probably be right.


Editor’s Note: To understand the impact of the Bible and biblical figures in the history of nations, please read this article from TIME magazine:

 

How Moses Shaped America - TIME



 

A mere coincidence? Or was the September 26th flood a sign that the Biblical vision needs to be taken seriously?

 

This writer simply ends this follow-up article by repeating the penultimate paragraph of the original article, “There is really a need to build new ‘cities upon hills’ because chances are by the end of this century, most lowland areas would have by then been swamped by the sea because of the effects of Global Warming. This is the message that the Bible brings to the Filipinos and all the peaceful peoples of the world.”

 

In the meantime, this writer wants to reiterate what he e-mailed friends (as posted in the User’s comments after the article) on Aug. 31, 2009: “I have good news for you and our people. All our trials and tribulations will be over in 2016. All the corruption in the Philippine government and even in Overseas-Filipino organizations such as the National Federation of Filipino-American Associations (NaFFAA) are but parts of a Divinely-dictated Destiny. We must, therefore, work, pray, unseat the corrupt government-and private-sector leaders and pray more and work harder to accomplish this vision for our homeland.”

 

W ebmaster’s Notes: Perhaps readers may like to read related articles written by Bobby Reyes in connection with the international fight against Global Warming:

A. Solzhenitszyn, a Russian excile because of his belief just said it right from the beginning.
"One Word of TRUTH (Holy Bible) shall outweigh the whole world. That we can prove what we claim to be true WHAT IS,WHATEVER and WHAT WILL BE".
All these things are happening because we've FORGOTTEN GOD.
The solution we can only find it in the Word of GOD 0 2 Chronicles 7:14) which says;
IF MY PEOPLE WILL HUMBLE THEMSELVES, AND PRAY AND SEEK MY FACE/WAYS AND TURN FROM THEIR WICKED WAYS - THEN WILL I HEAR FROM HEAVEN, FORGIVE THEIR SINS AND H E A L THEIR LAND".
Don't expect for an immediate solution for there is none except if we turn/return to GOD. Righteous judgment always start from GOD. Thee must be first, putting GOD wherre He is enthroned, GOD OF ALL. from the individual, to the family, then to the society and most importantly from the elected government officials. Corruption is so deeply rooted since the beginning of time and worse is yet to come. Only when a new godly-fearing generation who earnestly seek GOD and beg to be anointed, filled, guided and lead by God' HOLY SPIRIT can you expect to see any change at all.
For now, settle with what you have, and pray and intercede and remind the Lord, "Lord, in your wrath, remember mercy"(Habbakuk 3:2). This is from the Word of GOD, so let's heed and do it.
Please pray and call for a fast for the victims of the recent flood and that may the Phil recover soon. May GOD keep and bless the PHilippines once more. May we turn from ALL forms of IDOLATRY which GOD so hated.
