POVERTY NOT A VIRTUE BUT A CURSE
POVERTY is not a virtue, but a curse from God.
GOD wants us to prosper— financially, physically, mentally, materially, and most especially spiritually.
IN-fact, laziness is a curse from God, too. Being lazy leads one to being poor virtually in aspects— including being poor in the spirit. The even Bible says: “If you love sleep, you’ll end in poverty.” (Proverbs 20: 13). Email: firstname.lastname@example.org

WORLD AIDS DAY
ZC observed (Dec. 2) “World Aids Day”, and the City Health Office (CHO) reported a total of 113 HIV/AIDS cases since it came out in l995.
DR. Rodel Agbulos, CHO head in ZC, revealed that 85% of these victims are males and only 14% are females.
“77% hail from our city while the rest are transients. They acquire the deadly disease here through sexual( means),” Agbulos bared.
29 OF THEM ARE OFWs
AGBULOS also said 29 of these victims are OFWs who returned home via the backdoor ( Malaysia).
THEIR age brackets, according to Dr. Agbulos( as Oct. 2014), are as follows: 41 cases are ages ranging from 15 to 21, while 44 cases are having their ages ranging from 25 to 34.
INDEED, a harrowing account that young as they are, they’re now afflicted with this dreadful illness (HIV/AIDS) that can be acquired mostly through sexual flings.
AY ke horror! Donde yaman el maga tayta’y nana de-esos?
WHAT ABOUT ITS MORTALITY?
NOW, we ask Dr. Agbulos, what about those HIV/AIDS victims who have succumbed to such a malady? Are they also included in those reported cases? Dol hinde’ man claro.
THESE HIV/AIDS cases are said incurable. That means their lives are merely prolonged by those vaccines successfully researched not too long ago. That’s why several of these HIV victims, including self-confessed NBA legend Magic Johnson, are alive up to now.
BUT NO CURE UP TO NOW
HOWEVER, up to this day, this plague of our modern times, remains without any cure, as of yet.
THIS scourge is just a scrape in the surface, as more strange diseases arise from no where, these days— Ebola, Merscov, Birds flu, and etc..
SO scary, indeed!
PREDICTED IN THE SCRIPTURES
NONETHELESS, if we search the Scriptures, it’s all there, as prophesied by the chosen messengers of God.
HENCEFORTH, let us not remain complacent— casually spending our normal lives sans including God in our day-to-day activities.
GOD feels so much neglected these days, thus, pockets of judgment are now happening in all corners of the world.
