Heat wave can be defeated

LIFE’S INSPIRATIONS: “…God is not man that he should lie, nor a human being that he should change his mind…” (Numbers 23:19, the Holy Bible).

HEAT WAVE CAN BE DEFEATED: My Facebook friend, Caesar Sing, sent me a private message about the very hot temperatures we are experiencing once again, which can cause heat strokes or other ailments. For the benefit of everyone, I am reprinting here a column I wrote on April 12, 2013. Let us read that column again:

“ Is there anything Filipinos can do about this heat wave if and when it finally strikes? Or, better yet, is there anything that Filipinos can do to prevent any heat wavefrom victimizing them and the entire country? Impossible as it may sound, the answer is yes, there is something concrete that we can all do to minimize, if not altogether avoid, the occurrence of the dreaded heat wave.

“What is this that we can concretely do about the coming heat wave? It is listening to God and obeying His commands. For Christians, it means reading the Bible and following the commands written in its pages.

-ooo-

LINK BETWEEN HEAT WAVES AND THE BIBLE: “For, whether we like to admit it or not, a heat wave has very strong spiritual and Biblical dimensions, at least among Christians. In at least two passages or verses of the Bible, a heat wave is prophesied to happen, as a consequence of people no longer listening to God---which means, no longer reading the Bible, and of people no longer obeying His commands.

“The first of these two passages is found in Deuteronomy 28:15 and 22. These parts of the Bible read: “However, if you no longer listen to God and no longer obey Him, all of these curses will come upon you… The Lord will send you… scorching heat and severe drought…”

“The second passage is found in Deuteronomy 28:15 and 23, which reads: `The sky over your head will be fiery and the soil you step on will be as hard as iron due to lack of water… Dust, instead of water, will come down from the heavens… They will all come to you until you are destroyed…”

-ooo-

HEAT WAVE IS CAUSED BY MAN’S TURNING AWAY FROM GOD: “A careful reading of these verses by the Anak ng Diyos Kadugo Ni Kristo (AND KNK, or the Children of God Blood Kin of the Christ) Church will show us that a heat wave---scorching heat and severe drought---is attributed by the Prophet Moses to just two things---people no longer listening to God, which means they no longer read the Bible, they no longer attend mass or any other praise and worship activities, and they no longer obey His commands.

“But, what really does failure to read the Bible and obey God’s commands have got to do with a heat wave, or scorching heat and severe drought, or even with global warming and climate change?

“A lot, if you ask me, and it will take several columns to explain the relationship between these natural phenomenon and the failure to lead a spiritual life anchored on the Bible and God’s commands. And if that is what God is saying, who are we to question, much less doubt, what He said? As Numbers 23:19 is saying, “God is not man that he should lie, nor a human being that he should change his mind…”
