(Enlightenment—Passage of the Day)

Q. HOW LONG A TIME ALLOWED BY GOD TO LIVE TO MANKIND?

A.) “THE YEARS OF OUR LIFE ARE SEVENTY, OR EVEN BY REASON OF STRENGTH; YET THEIR SPAN IS BUT TOIL & TROUBLE; THEY ARE SOON GONE, AND WE FLY AWAY.” (PSALM 90:10). Email: jayfeliciano2@yahoo.com

AS I write my column today, the 11thof March, I kind of pondering two things: First, this day (March 11) marks the 39THdeath anniversary of my late father (Mario, Sr.), and 2ND, today, I’m somewhere else, where, based on our spiritual teachings, it’s here where our Lord Jesus Christ has established the New Jerusalem— replacing the old founded in the Middle East which is in Israel. Believe it or not, it’s here in the Philippines (as foretold in the Holy Bible, pointing to the”Far East”) that’s where the kingdom of God whose Will be done here on Earth, is being set up. That’s Davao City.

WHILE in Davao, I’ll find my time to move around and see if I can compare this place to ours, in terms of their progress and development. “Bien lehos gayot, Jun,” I remember my younger brother (Ruben) saying this all over again. Ruben, a retired navy soldier, having joined its Under Water Operation Unit (UOU) whose “Hell- Week” training in Subic Bay, Cavite City, rendered many of its applicants with impaired eardrums or even resulting to brain damage, thus, they quit in the end. Ruben, now permanently based in Davao, specifically, having settled lately in Davao Oriental where he ran but lost in the gubernatorial race back in 2010 elections, used to host me whenever I traveled to Davao City where he also has his own house situated near its new DC International Airport, and that’s the Cecille subdivision village. But, now, I’m welcomed by our new spiritual group whose central headquarters is located near its same DCIA, as well.

AFTER our afternoon prayer gathering, the next day, I’ll have all the free time to roam DC, and see what I can shoot in my video the most interesting events and/or panoramic scenes that DC can offer.

I’LL be back by either Wednesday or Thursday, with the scent of the spiritual manna of revelation that’s, unfortunately, the most overlooked important segment in our lives, nowadays. Leaders of this country, and of the whole world, for that matter, have obviously forsaken this, the very reason why this world is in serious trouble. One of which is the curse of the climate change that puts this planet Earth on its somewhat “boiling point” that just makes everyone feel like we’re somewhere nigh the fires of hell. This is what our evangelical leaders here on Earth keep warning us. God feels so much neglected these days. Look around all the events unfolding right before our very own eyes. They’re all God’s grim reminders to humanity that unless we all return to Him, there’ll be more torments, turmoils and tribulations to hound us, in the coming days. I’m not a fatalist, but the way I see it now, unless, we focus more in the spiritual, then, nothing will change for the better in our secular world. Be not nonchalantly on our spiritual lives. Let’s continue our normal lives, but let’s always include Him. (By Jun Feliciano) (30)
