FROM THE BARREL OF MY PEN
By Gonzalo “Jun” Policarpio

“SOON AND VERY SOON”


Filipinos are truly God-loving people and God will not allow that nation to perish despite the persistent wickedness of its government. As long as the Filipino people remain firm on faith in the Almighty Creator, like Job of the Old Testament who remained faithful despite the extreme sufferings and hardships that Satan manifested on him, the nation will finally rise from poverty and corruption to greatness and strength upon God’s command.

Try to look back at the history of powerful leaders of nations with evil minds and hearts some of which would even use the name of God hypocritically in a prayer or politically controlled legislative actions to cling to their despicable rule. They were the ones who perished.

One familiar example of such a ruler is Marcos, the Filipino dictator who stole the wealth of the Filipino people, to satisfy his own vanity and that of his wife. God had to intervene to stop him from launching a massacre against the people during the EDSA revolution, a massive popular protest demonstration against Marcos despotic rule during the mid 80s.

Like a devil’s child, Marcos escaped from the manifestation of God’s power during the peaceful revolt never to come back alive. And Democracy was restored in the Philippines.

Any ruler or leader of a nation who failed to learn from the lesson of EDSA I must have gone mad. But I believe a similar situation would not happen again. There is the Will of God calling for justice and truth.

Ask any Filipino on the streets of Manila or any other locality in the whole country how problems of escalating poverty and persistent government corruption could be solved, he or she relies on one ray of hope: IT WILL COME IN GOD’S TIMING SOON AND VERY SOON.

End
