LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… But I want you to realize that the head of every man is Christ, and the head of the woman is man, and the head of Christ is God…” (1 Corinthians 11:3, the Holy Bible).
EVM AT 57: FURTHER INC EXPANSIONS WORLDWIDE: I wish to greet Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC) Executive Minister Eduardo V. Manalo a very happy birthday on October 31, 2012. Turning 57 on that day, Ka Eduardo is at the helm of further evangelical expansions for the INC, which is now one of the world’s biggest spiritual groups, if not the biggest yet. The INC’s frenzied acquisition of more and more prime properties in the Philippines and around the world for its locales proves beyond doubt its success in its missions. Congratulations, Your Excellency!!!
ROXAS ON JUETENG, PLATFORM FOR 2016: Local Government Secretary Mar Roxas may have finally hit the nail on the head towards projecting himself as a credibly strong contender for the presidency in 2016, when he directed Pampanga police authorities---and the entire Philippine National Police---to stop jueteng. If Filipinos will see a determined push from Roxas to eliminate jueteng, and succeed in doing so, he is sure to win the hearts of voters four years from now.
There is no way Roxas can fail in this crusade. First, he has the full backing and support of President Aquino, not only as a Cabinet secretary, but as the Liberal Party’s presidential candidate in 2016. This presidential support can do wonders in compelling PNP officials to be sincere, this time, in waging a war against jueteng.
Then, as far as I know, Roxas is not indebted to any jueteng operator---either economically or politically. If the truth be told, Roxas does not need the money of jueteng lords. He is already very rich by himself and by his family. Likewise, as the de facto head of the party of President Aquino, he has the political network that will support his presidential bid, so he need not rely on jueteng connections.
EATING AND DRINKING WITH JESUS: Here’s an authoritative way to address sickness: whenever food is eaten or water or any liquid is taken in, God must first be thanked for them. Then, a prayer must be addressed to God, asking that the food and water (or liquid) be made the body and blood of Jesus Christ, our God and Savior.
This is what the Bible, in its 1 Corinthians 11:29-30, says: “… For those who eat and drink without discerning the body of Christ eat and drink judgment on themselves. That is why many among you are weak and sick, and a number of you have fallen asleep…” So next time anyone eats or drinks, he should ask that the food and the drink be made the body and blood of Jesus Christ, to strengthen his body.
For, eating and drinking the body and blood of Jesus Christ means being united with Him, physically and spiritually. And if Jesus is united with us in our bodies and in our spirit, is there anything that can be against us? Romans 8:31 says “if God is with us, who can be against us?”
OBAMA NEEDS TO ACKNOWLEDGE GOD: I believe that no matter how hard US President Obama may try to woo American voters during the last two weeks of the campaign, his destiny is already written for him: he is going to lose to former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
The only way Obama can reverse this is for him to make an effort to publicly acknowledge God in his campaign, and make a vow to give God a greater role in his government if he wins again. The President must ditch his “yes, we can” campaign, and admit that even a US president like him, and even America as a whole, can do nothing without God. If he does this, and repents for not recognizing God during his victory speech in 2008, his fortunes may yet change.
