If our ideas and solutions have not worked, then, some radical ideas must be in order! But these ideas must pass one crucial test: "Does this lead us to love God the Father above all and our neighbor as ourselves"? If not, then, it is a dangerously bad idea, not just radical! IT MUST BE OF LOVE BECAUSE ONLY LOVE CAN REBUILD OUR NATION. Said the Apostle John "Test the spirit [attitude, ideas, motives] whether it is of Christ or not." Only Love is of Christ!

WHAT THE PHILIPPINES NEEDS IS NOT KNOWLEDGE

WHAT THE PHILIPPINES NEEDS IS NOT KNOWLEDGE
By: Agape Foundation (Agasoft)

Sunday, May 9, 2010 –

I am living in two worlds. I live America in my readings, especially through the internet. And I live the rest of my day in the Philippines where I do my gardening and baking (bakerying) to earn a living.

In America, where I mentally live, there is plenty of ideas. You can say what you want, can read what you want. There is a high pile of information and you can add to it – what a great freedom and, on the other hand, what a great confusion too. She is not only a melting pot of races and cultures, but also of religions and ideas. What a great Babylon – a land of Confusion.

I love the freedom to say and to know, but I do not love the confusion. Somehow we can find the Authority – the True Arbiter of those myriads of ideas that are suffocating already many of us.

In contrast, in the Philippines where I physically live, true is the opposite. There is a great poverty of ideas. One reason is this: the Filipinos are not fun of ideas. They stick to what they know and do not have the excitement to learn more. If it were not for the fact that college education was presented and is still believed to be the answer to the people’s poverty, then, I bet, no insult intended to my racial brothers, they would not give a glance to college education which is a set of few ideas.

They read but only because there is an examination. After school, they do not read unless there is a homework. After graduation, they no longer read, except a small percentage of the Filipinos.

That this is true is confirmed by myself, a great lover of ideas. My forty years of being occupied with ideas – finding them, storing them, dissecting them, mixing them, refining them, investigating them, re-packing them, and publishing them, I have found that if you buy and sell ideas in the Philippines, you would not live for a week. Nobody will buy your ideas.

I may be too cruel in my judgment about the Filipinos’ lack of appreciation of ideas, but one can not easily question the veracity of this observation. I am in this field and I know what’s going on. Your disagreement can not and will not change my general observation.
Only a very small percentage of this nation, say, 5%, loves ideas.

What the 95% loves and so prioritize in their limited income are: food, liquor, cigarettes, entertainments, personal decorations and external enhancements.

Even among the readers, who account for only 10% of the whole population, only a very small percentage of them love ideas.

We may group these readers into three categories: those who read because they want to know about people, those who read about events, and those who seek for ideas.

“Why do the reading sector of the Filipinos read?” is a good question to ask. And the answer is easily: to know about people and events. They do not read in order to know the people’s ideas or the meaning behind those events.

Poverty in the Philippines is not fundamentally of the pocket, but of the mind. Since very young, I already recognize the value of ideas – most especially the best type of ideas we call WISDOM.

In the Book of Proverbs, wisdom is praised and held high. That is motivated me to become a bookworm, seeking ideas for 4 decades.

Let us quote the verses:

Pro 4:5 [niv]Get wisdom, get understanding; do not forget my words or swerve from them.
[kjv]Get wisdom, get understanding: forget it not; neither decline from the words of my mouth.
Pro 4:6 [niv]Do not forsake wisdom, and she will protect you; love her, and she will watch over you.
[kjv]Forsake her not, and she shall preserve thee: love her, and she shall keep thee.
Pro 4:7 [niv]Wisdom is supreme; therefore get wisdom. Though it cost all you have, get understanding.
[kjv]Wisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.
Pro 4:8 [niv]Esteem her, and she will exalt you; embrace her, and she will honor you.
[kjv]Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.

It says Wisdom is supreme (or the principal thing, NIV) and if you esteem her, she will exalt you, etcetera.

That is the first kind of ideas that I wanted for myself and have acquired in great quantity. That is the first kind of ideas that I wanted my children and the rest of the kids to acquire.

That first kind is called WISDOM.
The other kind is called TRUTH.

What is the value of truth? What can truths do to us?

Let us get the right answer from our Lord Jesus Christ. He said:

Joh 8:31 [niv]To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.
[kjv]Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
Joh 8:32 [niv]Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."
[kjv]And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Joh 8:33 [niv]They answered him, "We are Abraham's descendants and have never been slaves of anyone. How can you say that we shall be set free?"
[kjv]They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
Joh 8:34 [niv]Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, everyone who sins is a slave to sin.
[kjv]Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin.
Joh 8:35 [niv]Now a slave has no permanent place in the family, but a son belongs to it forever.
[kjv]And the servant abideth not in the house for ever: but the Son abideth ever.
Joh 8:36 [niv]So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.
[kjv]If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

Let us pick the essence from verses 31: The Lord’s teachings are the source of truths. Then verse 32: The truths shall set us free. And finally verse 36: Such freedom is permanent – everlasting, not temporary or short-lived.

To the youth of the land, I had been – I was – a youth like you but I have not wasted my young days. Rizal once said: “Youth is wasted in the young.” In other words, the youth’s error is that they waste their young years.

Instead of spending time to develop the bodies, minds and hearts, they spend their precious time in the activities of the grasshoppers: pleasure, games, plays, entertainments, and sad to say, vices.

Bodies should be trained in works to be filled with muscles. Fats must turn into muscles. Only in muscles can there be strength. Fats or obesity is weakness. Obese people contains fats and sugars both of which are the feeds of cancer and diabetes germs.

Hearts should be trained for relationship, first with God the Father, next with parents and siblings, then with neighbors and fellowmen and also with self. The heart should be educated to learn how to love God above all, and the neighbor as one’s self.

The mind should honed its talents, the body its skills.

Love-relationship is for the heart, talent is for the mind and skill for the body.

If the youth spends his time for these, then, he shall be a joy to his Father in heaven, his parents and siblings on earth and he will be bringing joy to everyone.

The wise man says in the Book of the Ecclesiastes: Remember your Creator, in the days of your youth. Sure, he says, there must be fun, but, he added, it must be fun that is clean and pleasing to the Father.

What is a clean fun?

It is the kind of fun that is beneficial and is not harmful to both himself and others.

But he should put in his mind that youth is not to be wasted in going-happy go lucky. It is a period of precious time intended for preparation.

And what is such preparation? It is the act of acquisition or collecting of WISDOM and TRUTHS - the type of ideas which are to serve as the foundation of rock for his future house, so Jesus says.

His teachings – which are source of wisdom and truths – are the foundation of rock:

Mat 7:24 [niv]"Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock.
[kjv]Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock:
Mat 7:25 [niv]The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock.
[kjv]And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock.
Mat 7:26 [niv]But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.
[kjv]And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand:
Mat 7:27 [niv]The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell with a great crash."
[kjv]And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house; and it fell: and great was the fall of it.

The Lord’s teachings – the wisdom and truths that He taught and continues to teach – are a strong foundation. You will not fall if you have this foundation.

I DISCOURAGE YOU FROM PUTTING UP A FOUNDATION OF KNOWLEDGE

Knowledge is a set of information, usually material in nature and of secular topics. Some of this knowledge are put in books and taught in schools, universities and colleges.

This earthly and worldly knowledge are insufficient. It may fill a large bulk of the internet and the world’s libraries and bookstores but nevertheless, it will only add to the confusion as what is happening in the United States of America – which is emerging or has emerged to be the modern nation of Babylon – meaning Confusion. Babylon means Confusion.
I am not saying you do not study a course in school or read book that can help you master your means of livelihood or which can develop your talent. You must read such book. But what I am saying is this: Do not read only the books that gives you income or position or power or wealth in this life. READ THE BOOKS THAT CAN GIVE YOU WISDOM AND TRUTHS.

Wisdom and Truths are special types of knowledge. Wisdom is adage – meaning: correct knowledge added through age or added up through the ages. It is well-tested principles. Principles of life, happiness and success. Wisdom guides you to the right paths of life.

You may have knowledge so as you are the best scientist and inventor in the world; but if you have no wisdom, you will only use your inventions to ruin the environment’s life-support system, enslave and destroy others and lastly, ruin your life.

Knowledge which are not wise (wisdom) and true (truths), puffs you up (make you proud) and sends you to your own fall.

1 Corinthians 8:2 and Matthew 23:12 say so:

1Co 8:2 [niv]The man who thinks he knows something does not yet know as he ought to know.
[kjv]And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know.

Mat 23:12 [niv]For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted.
[kjv]And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.

Worldly knowledge taught in worldly schools produce pride – it “puffs up.” And when you are puffed up – proud, the next thing to happen to you is fall. That is what the Lord says, “And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased.”

Today’s education provided by schools from day care to college or universities have one great error: IT MAKES YOU PROUD AND WILL MAKE YOU FALL.

The USA is our case in point. The USA is the nation that has pursued, acquired, stored and used the most of the worldly, secular, scientific, technological knowledge probably no nation ever since has attained since the beginning. She has the most number of libraries, containing the greatest number of books and ideas.

But still what has the USA now attained?

Recent figures say that the USA is now staying afloat through the 3 billions of dollars she borrows from China and other rich nations everyday! Without these 3 billions from China, the USA will collapse.

In order to get secured, China has required that the houses and lots of the Americans in America shall be given as collaterals to China. In other words, if the Americans cannot pay their loans from China, the Chinese and their government will become legal owners of the beautiful houses and spacious lots in America!

That will be a unique kind of invasion! A never-heard-of kind.

Now, to let you see how US-collected and US-kind of knowledge does not work, let us take a look at the health of the American people. Well, you can go to the internet especially in websites like www.mercola.com and www.naturalnews.com and also in www.rense.com, and also you can read books in the libraries, then, you will find out, to your surprise, THAT THE MOST SICK PEOPLE IN THE WORLD TODAY ARE THE USAers! I mean, the Americans – the people of the United States of America.

They are the ones plagued with the most number of cancers, the most number of diabetes, the most number of Cardio-Vascular Diseases like heart attack and stroke, the most number of STDs and next to Africa, the most number of AIDS. We have not mentioned yet the different kinds of mind diseases.

Why is this so? You might wonder. I wondered! Really, I have been asking why such most-knowledgeable or knowledge-filled nation in the world has gone wrong!

I do not want you to wait but want to immediately give you the answer I have found, after long search.

The error lies in their rejection of the two types of knowledge I had mentioned above, namely: WISDOM and TRUTHS.

Their knowledge is deficient – lacking – of WISDOM and TRUTHS.

Their set of knowledge is full of lies, half-truths, fictions, pride, immorality, evil schemes, extortive systems.

Wisdom and Truths only come from God and often through His true servants. Let us hear direct from the Bible the confirmation as to the source of Wisdom and freedom-giving Truth.

2Ch 1:7 [niv]That night God appeared to Solomon and said to him, "Ask for whatever you want me to give you."
[kjv]In that night did God appear unto Solomon, and said unto him, Ask what I shall give thee.
2Ch 1:8 [niv]Solomon answered God, "You have shown great kindness to David my father and have made me king in his place.
[kjv]And Solomon said unto God, Thou hast shewed great mercy unto David my father, and hast made me to reign in his stead.
2Ch 1:9 [niv]Now, LORD God, let your promise to my father David be confirmed, for you have made me king over a people who are as numerous as the dust of the earth.
[kjv]Now, O LORD God, let thy promise unto David my father be established: for thou hast made me king over a people like the dust of the earth in multitude.
2Ch 1:10 [niv]Give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may lead this people, for who is able to govern this great people of yours?"
[kjv]Give me now wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people: for who can judge this thy people, that is so great?
2Ch 1:11 [niv]God said to Solomon, "Since this is your heart's desire and you have not asked for wealth, riches or honor, nor for the death of your enemies, and since you have not asked for a long life but for wisdom and knowledge to govern my people over whom I have made you king,
[kjv]And God said to Solomon, Because this was in thine heart, and thou hast not asked riches, wealth, or honour, nor the life of thine enemies, neither yet hast asked long life; but hast asked wisdom and knowledge for thyself, that thou mayest judge my people, over whom I have made thee king:
2Ch 1:12 [niv]therefore wisdom and knowledge will be given you. And I will also give you wealth, riches and honor, such as no king who was before you ever had and none after you will have."
[kjv]Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.

1Ki 4:29 [niv]God gave Solomon wisdom and very great insight, and a breadth of understanding as measureless as the sand on the seashore.
[kjv]And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much, and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore.
1Ki 4:30 [niv]Solomon's wisdom was greater than the wisdom of all the men of the East, and greater than all the wisdom of Egypt.
[kjv]And Solomon's wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country, and all the wisdom of Egypt.

1Ki 4:34 [niv]Men of all nations came to listen to Solomon's wisdom, sent by all the kings of the world, who had heard of his wisdom.
[kjv]And there came of all people to hear the wisdom of Solomon, from all kings of the earth, which had heard of his wisdom.

Proverbs 2:6 says, “The Lord gives wisdom.”

Ecclesiastes 2:26: “To the person who pleases the Lord, He gives wisdom…”

There is no doubt that God YeHoWaH, the One who created Adam and Eve and all mankind, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the Maker and Father of us all – is the Source of true Wisdom.

There is a fake wisdom – the wisdom of the world.

It is what James mentioned in his epistle. Let us quote:

Jam 3:13 [niv]Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show it by his good life, by deeds done in the humility that comes from wisdom.
[kjv]Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom.
Jam 3:14 [niv]But if you harbor bitter envy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast about it or deny the truth.
[kjv]But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth.
Jam 3:15 [niv]Such "wisdom" does not come down from heaven but is earthly, unspiritual, of the devil.
[kjv]This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish.
Jam 3:16 [niv]For where you have envy and selfish ambition, there you find disorder and every evil practice.
[kjv]For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
Jam 3:17 [niv]But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere.
[kjv]But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.
Jam 3:18 [niv]Peacemakers who sow in peace raise a harvest of righteousness.
[kjv]And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.

Verse 14 & 16 say that if the results are envy, proud ambition and strife (war), confusion, and every evil practice – then, it is fake wisdom. It is not the wisdom that comes from God.

Despite our false impression that the USA is a Christian nation, it is the wrong kind wisdom from her researchers, scientists, educators and leaders that prevails and rules over there. The true wisdom and truth from God’s true prophets and apostles have been undermined – note: suppressed – over-ruled by that advanced by the false teachers and given priority in their books, bookstores, classrooms, and mass media.

Instead of the people and leaders patterning their lives according to wisdom and truth found in God’s Word, it is the truths and wisdom contained in the Bible that they have customized – read: altered – to fit their selfishness.

So, it is not only the Torah (Old Testament) that has been bent and misinterpreted in Talmud, also the New Testament has been perverted to suit their systems and evil objectives. They suit the Word of God to their will and wishes, instead of them suiting their lives to God’s Word, wisdom and truths.

It is the wrong wisdom the USA has been using and promoting. This wisdom is an admixture of the knowledge she had collected from all over the world and ages through her knowledge collectors (e.g., educators, scientists, etc.).




Since this wisdom is corrupted, that is, full of falsehood, errors and lies, the USA, who has thus become the end-time Babylon the Great, the nation of Confused (mixed) Knowledge, is going to fall – read: is now falling!

Read the prophecy from the old book of prophet Isaiah. This is very relevant because it is not fulfilling.

And you will know that wrong wisdom is mainly the cause of her fall. This is addressed to the USA and her Allies (followers).

Isa 47:1 [niv]"Go down, sit in the dust, Virgin Daughter of Babylon; sit on the ground without a throne, Daughter of the Babylonians. No more will you be called tender or delicate.
[kjv]Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: there is no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate.
Isa 47:2 [niv]Take millstones and grind flour; take off your veil. Lift up your skirts, bare your legs, and wade through the streams.
[kjv]Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers.
Isa 47:3 [niv]Your nakedness will be exposed and your shame uncovered. I will take vengeance; I will spare no one."
[kjv]Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet thee as a man.
Isa 47:4 [niv]Our Redeemer-the LORD Almighty is his name- is the Holy One of Israel.
[kjv]As for our redeemer, the LORD of hosts is his name, the Holy One of Israel.
Isa 47:5 [niv]"Sit in silence, go into darkness, Daughter of the Babylonians; no more will you be called queen of kingdoms.
[kjv]Sit thou silent, and get thee into darkness, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called, The lady of kingdoms.
Isa 47:6 [niv]I was angry with my people and desecrated my inheritance; I gave them into your hand, and you showed them no mercy. Even on the aged you laid a very heavy yoke.
[kjv]I was wroth with my people, I have polluted mine inheritance, and given them into thine hand: thou didst shew them no mercy; upon the ancient hast thou very heavily laid thy yoke.
Isa 47:7 [niv]You said, 'I will continue forever- the eternal queen!' But you did not consider these things or reflect on what might happen.
[kjv]And thou saidst, I shall be a lady for ever: so that thou didst not lay these things to thy heart, neither didst remember the latter end of it.
Isa 47:8 [niv]"Now then, listen, you wanton creature, lounging in your security and saying to yourself, 'I am, and there is none besides me. I will never be a widow or suffer the loss of children.'
[kjv]Therefore hear now this, thou that art given to pleasures, that dwellest carelessly, that sayest in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me; I shall not sit as a widow, neither shall I know the loss of children:
Isa 47:9 [niv]Both of these will overtake you in a moment, on a single day: loss of children and widowhood. They will come upon you in full measure, in spite of your many sorceries and all your potent spells.
[kjv]But these two things shall come to thee in a moment in one day, the loss of children, and widowhood: they shall come upon thee in their perfection for the multitude of thy sorceries, and for the great abundance of thine enchantments.
Isa 47:10 [niv]You have trusted in your wickedness and have said, 'No one sees me.' Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you when you say to yourself, 'I am, and there is none besides me.'
[kjv]For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me.
Isa 47:11 [niv]Disaster will come upon you, and you will not know how to conjure it away. A calamity will fall upon you that you cannot ward off with a ransom; a catastrophe you cannot foresee will suddenly come upon you.
[kjv]Therefore shall evil come upon thee; thou shalt not know from whence it riseth: and mischief shall fall upon thee; thou shalt not be able to put it off: and desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shalt not know.
Isa 47:12 [niv]"Keep on, then, with your magic spells and with your many sorceries, which you have labored at since childhood. Perhaps you will succeed, perhaps you will cause terror.
[kjv]Stand now with thine enchantments, and with the multitude of thy sorceries, wherein thou hast laboured from thy youth; if so be thou shalt be able to profit, if so be thou mayest prevail.
Isa 47:13 [niv]All the counsel you have received has only worn you out! Let your astrologers come forward, those stargazers who make predictions month by month, let them save you from what is coming upon you.
[kjv]Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.
Isa 47:14 [niv]Surely they are like stubble; the fire will burn them up. They cannot even save themselves from the power of the flame. Here are no coals to warm anyone; here is no fire to sit by.
[kjv]Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.
Isa 47:15 [niv]That is all they can do for you- these you have labored with and trafficked with since childhood. Each of them goes on in his error; there is not one that can save you.
[kjv]Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured, even thy merchants, from thy youth: they shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save thee.
Note verses 7 & 8, her knowledge and wisdom have made her proud. And we know from the Lord that “Whoever lifts himself up shall be abased” (Matthew 23:12).

Isa 47:10 [niv]You have trusted in your wickedness and have said, 'No one sees me.' Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you when you say to yourself, 'I am, and there is none besides me.'
[kjv]For thou hast trusted in thy wickedness: thou hast said, None seeth me. Thy wisdom and thy knowledge, it hath perverted thee; and thou hast said in thine heart, I am, and none else beside me.

If you more carefully examine verse 10, you will find out that their knowledge and wisdom has become synonymous to wickedness! Their knowledge and wisdom are wicked! Their knowledge and wisdom have caused them to become pervert – incorrect, erroneous, wrong, crooked.

Further to verse 13 to 15, God taunts their wisdom.

Isa 47:13 [niv]All the counsel you have received has only worn you out! Let your astrologers come forward, those stargazers who make predictions month by month, let them save you from what is coming upon you.
[kjv]Thou art wearied in the multitude of thy counsels. Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save thee from these things that shall come upon thee.
Isa 47:14 [niv]Surely they are like stubble; the fire will burn them up. They cannot even save themselves from the power of the flame. Here are no coals to warm anyone; here is no fire to sit by.
[kjv]Behold, they shall be as stubble; the fire shall burn them; they shall not deliver themselves from the power of the flame: there shall not be a coal to warm at, nor fire to sit before it.
Isa 47:15 [niv]That is all they can do for you- these you have labored with and trafficked with since childhood. Each of them goes on in his error; there is not one that can save you.
[kjv]Thus shall they be unto thee with whom thou hast laboured, even thy merchants, from thy youth: they shall wander every one to his quarter; none shall save thee.

What further descriptions does God have regarding their human wisdom?

1Co 3:19 [niv]For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God's sight. As it is written: "He catches the wise in their craftiness" ;
[kjv]For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.
1Co 3:20 [niv]and again, "The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile."
[kjv]And again, The Lord knoweth the thoughts of the wise, that they are vain.

The biggest error the USA has committed is that she has exchanged God, His Word, His wisdom and truth with those which the pagans offered: false knowledge, false wisdom, lies.

In this case, there is no hope to end well what has become more and more corrupt and evil. Let us follow the end of a mind-set of a nation that has gone astray.

The apostle Paul wrote:

1:18 [niv]The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness,
[kjv]For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;
Rom 1:19 [niv]since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.
[kjv]Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.
Rom 1:20 [niv]For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature--have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse.
[kjv]For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:
Rom 1:21 [niv]For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened.
[kjv]Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.
Rom 1:22 [niv]Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools
[kjv]Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,
Rom 1:23 [niv]and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
[kjv]And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.
Rom 1:24 [niv]Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another.
[kjv]Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:
Rom 1:25 [niv]They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator--who is forever praised. Amen.
[kjv]Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Rom 1:26 [niv]Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones.
[kjv]For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:
Rom 1:27 [niv]In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion.
[kjv]And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.
Rom 1:28 [niv]Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, he gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what ought not to be done.
[kjv]And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;
Rom 1:29 [niv]They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips,
[kjv]Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,
Rom 1:30 [niv]slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents;
[kjv]Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
Rom 1:31 [niv]they are senseless, faithless, heartless, ruthless.
[kjv]Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:
Rom 1:32 [niv]Although they know God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
[kjv]Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

They deny God even if they know He exists. Then, they suppressed His truth and wisdom. They think it no good to retain the knowledge of and from God (v.28). They exchanged the truth of God for a lie (v. 25).

Results: futile thinking and foolish darkened hearts (v. 21), bodies degraded to sexual immorality and diseases (v. 24), depraved mind (v. 28). Verses 29-32 described a nation that is full of sins, vices, immoralities, depravities, crimes and all kinds of wickedness – a nation that is ripe for destruction.

There is no hope for such a kind of character, mentality and behavior, as individuals and as a whole nation.

Revelation 18 – fall of government and its business enterprises – is referring to the USA, the end-time Babylon the Great.

LESSON

The most important lesson you can learn from reading this article – the greatest benefit you can gain is this: STOP IMITATING THE U.S.A.!

The USA is in our case, the blind guide Jesus said to be guiding the blind follower. We, the Filipinos, have been one of those blind followers of American wisdom -- systems, methods, schemes, techniques, strategies, procedures.

I am urging all Filipinos, especially the youths to seek true Wisdom and Truths. And to seek and ask them from the true Source: God through Jesus Christ.

Start the process by asking the invisible yet living God for wisdom and truth, like what Solomon did. And God promised through Jesus Chrsit that “He who asks shall receive; he who seeks shall find…”

Mat 7:7 [niv]"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.
[kjv]Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
Mat 7:8 [niv]For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened.
[kjv]For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.

Ask and seek. And even knock at the door of the Father’s heart – He will open. These are the great treasures Jesus spoke about.

Mat 6:19 [niv]"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.
[kjv]Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
Mat 6:20 [niv]But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.
[kjv]But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:


The greatest truth we should learn from here is that: GOD’S WISDOM AND TRUTHS WHICH SHOULD FILL OUR MIND, IS FUELED BY THE PRESENCE OF GOD’S LOVE IN OUR HEARTS.

Knowledge - wisdom - cannot stand – is nothing – without love.

1Co 13:1 [niv]If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.
[kjv]Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.
1Co 13:2 [niv]If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.
[kjv]And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
1Co 13:3 [niv]If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
[kjv]And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

Therefore, if we seek Wisdom-Truth for our mind, let us not forget to seek also godly Love for our heart.

Proverbs 4 (Old Testament) describes wisdom as supreme, while I Corinthians 13 (New Testament) portrays Love as the greatest, the most excellent way (I Cor. 12).

Wisdom, the apostle Paul says, is nothing without love. It is only like a clinging cymbal – noisy! Noisy in the classroom, noisy in wars!

What the Philippines needs, if you would listen to this Systems Analyst and Developer, for one minute, is not knowledge, but Wisdom-Truth and Love.

In that way, we can avoid the same ruin the USA is now fast heading to!

Main Vision of THE FUTURE of The USA
and will affect other nations

MAIN VISION OF THE ATTACK VS USA

“On the morning of May 24, 1997, I saw Satan stand above The Earth. He had puppet strings attached to the leaders of the world, even and especially The United States of America. One of the darkest and heaviest strings was attached to The Congress of The USA, another to The United Nations, one to Russia, one to Germany, one to China, one to Mexico, one to Africa and one to The Arab Alliance. These were large, dark, heavy strings.
Then, Jesus said, “Look!”
I looked and saw a cloud, red and noxious, emerge from Russia, striking out across The Atlantic Ocean and settling beneath the sea. Dark submarines surrounded The USA and lurked silently in the deep waters of the oceans. Then I saw a man in a watchtower and heard him say, “We are ready.”
The writing beneath the watchtower read: “USSR.” The soldier in the watchtower was watching The USA.
As he watched, dark storm clouds gathered over The USA, and Satan pulled the thick puppet strings of Russia, Germany, China, Mexico, The Arab Alliance and The United Nations. They came together to form a line against The USA.
Then, Jesus said, “Behold!”
I looked to see a mother carrying a new babe. On the mother’s feet and wrists were chains. The chains had no locks; she could be free if she wanted to be. But, the woman still saw herself as in chains, in bondage. The baby was crying for milk, but the mother’s breasts were dry.
The mother was a giant among mothers, and stood tall, but her knees were those of a puppet; her legs were wooden. Her eyes were blinded with a heavy, dark covering, and, where there should have been pupils and irises, there were none. She wore the eyes of the blind beggar. Across her chest was the USA Flag. The baby wailed.
Then, I heard the voice of Jesus say, “And lo, Behold!”
Suddenly, from the sky, a hangman’s noose appeared. As I looked, I could see that it was attached to those, who had the dark, heavy attachments to the puppet master. These dark attachments went to Russia, Germany, China, Mexico, The Arab Alliance and the United Nations. They controlled the hangman’s noose. The noose was fitted snugly around the neck of the woman. It was tightened, and the eyes of the woman bulged. As this happened, the pupils and irises of the woman returned. She was near death. She dropped the baby, and as it broke into 1,000 pieces, I saw that it was made of clay.
Then, Jesus said, “Behold!”
And, like a thief in the night, the submarines began to fire upon the USA. These are the areas I saw hit by the bombs, but not necessarily in this order: 1.Los Angeles; 2 A desert area; 3 Dallas; 4 Houston; 5 Little Rock; 6 Minnesota; 7 New York City; 8 Mobile; 9Chicago; 10 Cincinnati; 11Pennsylvania; 12. St. Louis; 13 Washington DC (three times); 14 Atlanta (one fizzles in air, but others hit) 15Virginia; 16 Florida (several locations); 17New Orleans; 18 Ohio, again; 19Kentucky; 20 Tennessee (two places); 21Michigan (four places); 22Oklahoma City; 23 Cheyenne, Wyoming; 24 Alaska; 25 Hawaii. These are not all, but they are the majority.
The woman fell and great numbers of people lay dead and dying. In many areas, the bombs killed only the people and left the buildings. The evil ones had plans for the mighty buildings of Babylon. But, the soil and the water were contaminated and the food was not fit to eat.
When Uncle Sam sneezes, the rest of the world catches cold
When this country falls others will go in like fashion. All will turn on each another until Lucifer has his face off with Jesus Christ. But Lucifer will lose, and so will those who follow him. The punishment for those who follow will be severe.”

ECONOMIC COLLAPSE FIRST
“Many subsequent visions show war beginning in the USA near mid-December, 1998. An economic collapse, seen in 1991, will precede this war.”

NOTE: Economic collapse started in 1998!
Again, no nation will be remain unaffected: “When this country [USA] falls others will go in like fashion.”

NEW WORLD ORDER (NWO) PLANS REVEALED

SECOND MESSAGE FROM OUR FATHER IN HEAVEN
January 26, 2003
"My Beloved Child, I am your Father in Heaven, yea Jehovah, Most High God. Hearken unto Me, My Little One; for what I have to say is of utmost importance! Yes, My Child, you hear the rumblings in the Spirit. You perceive the tumult! You sense what is at hand and now I come forth with warnings of much that you already perceive.
My Child, you have heard of thousands of Chinese troops, who are amassing south of the border of the USA. Be advised, My Child, that these are not just amassing south of the border. Through underground tunnels and through transport by rail and by sea, there are many thousands, even tens of thousands, who are already in the USA. They are scattered here and there and many are hidden underground and in the national forests. Listen to Me, My Child, when I tell you that this is all by design. The Antichrist has raised up and equipped China to be the police enforcer of the world and they are being put in place at strategic locations throughout the USA. At the time of a pre-determined crisis, when most of your troops are without your borders fighting senseless wars, they will bring forth these troops to establish law and order. This chaos, which is to ensue, is planned chaos. A few weeks ago, I showed you in visions and spoke to you of the New World Order plans to blow up a large city in the USA. Yes, they plan to use nuclear devices. In addition to this, I have shown you how these very ones plan to murder your president. Do not believe what many of you see on television. For, all that is shown to you will be a lie. When they follow through with the murder of your president, and even if you see the very person pull the trigger, do not believe that you see. For, it is according to New World Order design that he be martyred for their purposes to further implement their designs and plans."
"Father, is there a possibility that the murder of this president can be averted?"
"My Child, there is always this possibility and much that is coming down depends on the repentance of the people. But, I tell you, My Child, that few are repenting. They believe that if they sing more, if they praise more, if they shout more, that they are alright with Me, even though their hearts are full of darkness. I am not in this. If any of you want Me and My Son, your repentance must be real. It must be sincere. It must be deep and you must stop disobeying My laws. You must come out of the worldly traps. But, I tell you, My Child, that over and over I have warned you to shut down television; for it is a conduit for Lucifer. I have warned you to stay out of movies and to keep your children away from them, but how many have listened? My Little One, if each of you does not want to be a mind controlled zombie, who is manipulated and controlled by Lucifer and the spirit of the world, cease to partake of the pollution. Burn these television sets en masse. Chop them up and load the garbage heaps! Refuse any longer to be a Satanic pawn. But, the truth is that most are addicted to television. To part with it is to part with one’s faithful and trusted friend, informer and babysitter. I tell you, My Child, if each of you will not rid your lives of this smut, if you will not break serfdom to this New World Order trap, you will become further enslaved in many ways.
Oh, My Child, the world over the Luciferian war is picking up. The world over, you will see freedom vanish in air and you will see Nazism, communism and Satanism move in and take over. My Child, it is a day wherein I am calling Mine out of this world. I am calling Mine out of the mind control! I am calling Mine out of the clamor and if you will not hear Me now, how will you hear Me when foreign troops are on your front doorsteps? How will you hear me on the death trains and in the concentration camps? For, I tell you now, and listen to Me. As your troops are marshaled up and sent out to fight useless wars, the Chinese will go door to door to pick up those on the lists. From street to street, from road to road, they will travel to pick up those on the lists, the "dangerous" people on the red list first. But, I tell you, My Child, that many on this red list are already gone. They have met their deaths in underground bases, in remote concentration camps, and it has happened right under your noses."
"Yes, My Child, the Chinese are infiltrating America; but you have seen nothing yet. Yes, you have heard it and it is so! George H. W. Bush is in on the murder plot of his own son! Yes, I have revealed it to another and I now confirm it to you. When it comes to pass, know this. The one, who takes his (the president’s) place was also in on the plot and the one, who follows this man, is surely in on it. For, the rise of another to the presidency will be short-lived."
"So, Father, these evil ones plan to kill the president, blow up some cities, call martial law and take the guns?"
"My Child, it may not come to pass in the order you have mentioned, but yes these are their plans. And, not only do they plan to use the Chinese and the Germans to take up your guns, but they plan to use them to pick up those, who are on their lists."
"Father, is it going to be this easy for them?’
"All will not go as they plan; for they forget Me, the God factor. This, they have factored out. But, many, they will round up, who are outspoken and strong "believers;" and these they will murder."
"Father, how long?"
"My Child, I tell you their plans. Within a month, they plan to seize Iraq. Within six months, they plan to attack North Korea. And, at the time that your troops are nearly all out of your country, they plan to murder your President and to go on a rampage of blowing up several cities with nuclear devices. Out of the chaos, out of the destruction, they will bring about their New World Order. And, the black bird, their awaited Phoenix, will rise in Europe. As the USA falls by design of the evil ones, Europe will rise through the Antichrist. Watch Germany; for the Antichrist will rise in Europe as I have told you previously and he will be of Germanic descent."
"Father, You have said it and You have also told how Lucifer will inhabit the body of the Syrian."
"Both things are so. You will see the Antichrist rise in Europe. This evil man will unite Europe and cause it to rise to a position of world power. He will set out to conquer all nations and to cause them to worship the beast, along with the harlot, who rides the beast system."
"Father, You say that he will cause them to worship the beast and then you mention the harlot."
"Listen to Me, My Child, the scarlet woman is the Catholic Church. She is drunk with the blood of the Saints; for down through the ages, this church has persecuted and killed many of the Saints. At this late hour, you shall see this church go through great travail as this evil is exposed; but with the help of the Antichrist this whore will be used to sway and unite the peoples of the world. When this is done to suit the Antichrist, he will stomp the whore. He will burn the whore; for he plans to share his power with no one, only to use them and destroy them."
"So, how does the Syrian come into play?"
"Watch this, My Child, for one of foreign descent will be used by the Antichrist to deceive the people."
"But, does the Syrian not fight against the Antichrist?"
"He does; but not at first. They align with one another. When you see this Syrian rise to a position of power, remember My words."
"But, the Syrian is antichrist?"
"He is antichrist, but not the Antichrist. The Antichrist will rise in Europe and He is of Germanic descent."
"And, most likely a ‘fake Jew?’"
"You know the plan, My Child, the plan for world dominion, and at the root of it are the ‘fake Jews’, who are Satan’s puppets."
"So, Father, the Antichrist push for these wars on two fronts is to expedite the destruction of America and to pick up all on their lists."
"You have been told as much."
"Yet, Father, even yesterday I was reading how the FDA has 22,000 bushels of hybridized corn, some of which has been slipped into the food supply. I read that this corn is making hogs infertile in Iowa and some are demanding that the FDA get rid of this corn."
"My Child, there is an all-out war to destroy your water supply and your food supply. The spraying of the skies is not killing people and animals fast enough to suit them; so they are picking up speed. These 22,000 bushels and much more, just like it, will be given to animals, even humans! The FDA is under UN control and is in no way subservient to the demands of the people of the USA."
"So, Father, with the destruction of the cities through nuclear blasts, the poisoning of the skies and the poisoning of the food chain, people will begin to go hungry."
"You are correct, but this is not all. The New World Order bankers will declare that all debts must be paid for this country is totally bankrupt and totally controlled by them. Many will not be able to pay their bills. Bankruptcy will no longer be an option and they will come to seize all property and to throw the debtors into prison. This is their plan and I tell you, My Child, that the enactment of the same is not far off. Understand?"
"Yes, My Father."
"Type this and post on the current Message for You along with the last message from Me. Also, add both as the next chapter to Book VIII. I am your Father in Heaven, Yea Jehovah, most High God."
As witnessed, dictated and recorded this 26th day of January, 2003,
