LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “… Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God--- children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God…” (John 1:12-13, the Holy Bible).
SUN’S ERUPTIONS: WHAT DO THEY MEAN?Are the solar flares happening in the sun just part of an 11-year cycle of eruptive activities, or are they a portent of things to come? I am asking this because solar flares, the latest of which occurred on March 29, 2014, may become strong enough to destroy the sun itself, burn the moon and the stars and the earth, just as several parts of the Bible are saying.
I know this is scary, and many will say it is not going to happen, but let us see what the Bible is saying. In Malachi 4:1, it says: “ `Surely the day is coming; it will burn like a furnace. All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble, and the day that is coming will set them on fire,’ says the LordAlmighty. `Not a root or a branch will be left to them’...”
In 2 Peter 3:10 and 12, it is written: “But the day of the Lord will come like a thief. The heavens will disappear with a roar; the elements will be destroyed by fire, and the earth and everything done in it will be laid bare… That day will bring about the destruction of the heavens by fire, and the elements will melt in the heat…”
DAY OF FIRE TO BURN THE SUN AND THE SKIES? Then, Jesus Christ, our God and Savior, confirms this fiery end for those who do not listen to, nor obey, Him. In Matthew 13:49-50, He said: “This is how it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come and separate the wicked from the righteous and throw them into the blazing furnace, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth…”
In John 15:6, Jesus categorically said that people must believe in, and obey, Him, otherwise, the penalty is eternal fire: “If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned…”
In line with this, the question, as propounded by 2 Peter 11-12, compels pondering: “Since everything will be destroyed in this way, what kind of people ought you to be? You ought to live holy and godly lives as you look forward to the day of God and speed its coming…”
HAVE YOU BEEN “BORN OF GOD”?How do we attain “holy and godly lives”? We must be “born of God” and thereby become “Children of God Blood Kin of the Christ”. How can we be born of God? John 1:12 of the Bible partly prescribes the way: accept and have faith in Jesus. Then, other parts of the Bible demands that Jesus be accepted and given faith as God and Savior. Have you been “born of God”?
WHERE IS THE “PORK” RESOLUTION? I do not understand the supposed announcement from the Office of the Ombudsman, allegedly made through its spokesman, that it has already completed its investigation of Senators Juan Ponce Enrile, Jinggoy Estrada and Bong Revilla and that it is set to file plunder----and, therefore, non-bailable---charges against them and several others before the Sandiganbayan.
So, where is the resolution finding Enrile, Estrada and Revilla liable for the P10 billion pork barrel scam, together with Janet Lim Napoles? Why was this resolution not released by the Ombudsman to the media? Was this aimed at preventing the senators from appealing any verdict against them seasonably with the Supreme Court, and therefore prevent the issuance of warrants against them?
