Fearful forecast

/ 09:37 PM November 24, 2013

The entire planet is in turmoil.

On the geological plane, weather disturbances almost everywhere present a very, very inconvenient truth. We have abused Mother Earth. Mindlessly, heartlessly, obscenely.


On the human plane, it is still the unresolved matter between the conquered and the conqueror; the oppressed and the oppressor; the colonized and the colonizer; the wealthy and the poor; the powerful and the powerless; the learned and the ignorant; the majority and the minority; the modern and the ancient; science and the humanities.

In other words, the world is dangerously, and yet needlessly, lopsided, in violation of the cosmic law of balance and symmetry.


It is this incomprehensible hubris that, since the world began, humanity has failed to conquer, despite its sufficient knowledge on how to establish order out of chaos in the universe.

For this defiance, the human race is now suffering the consequential punishment.

But let us look at the situation through a microscopic perspective—with a more visible, and therefore valid, proof of how the cosmic, geological, human and political (or social) planes are intertwined and inseparable.

The province of Sulu is what can be described in contemporary terms as an “environmental disaster.”

The so-called conflict of the 1970s, which was started by false prophets motivated by greed for power and wealth, resulted in the violent deaths of over 150,000 innocent people all over the island of Mindanao and its southern islands, all of which sit on untold renewable resources that could sustain their inhabitants for millennia. However, instead of being brought to justice and punished for their crimes against humanity, the perpetrators have been transformed into heroes by the false testimony of chroniclers. “So is it written; so shall it be.”

Tribunals were bribed into silence; the Defenders of the People murdered, their women raped, their children abused, their homes looted. Authorities were blinded by the glare of wealth and power and they abandoned the People. The conflagration ignited by the government’s balls of fire obliterated their existence from the face of the Earth.

As everything came from the Earth, so must they be returned to the Earth. “Out of dust to dust returneth.”


The People, fearing for their lives, all sought refuge in other lands, abandoning the countryside where their livelihood grew from the ground. Pestilence, Sickness, Starvation, Poverty and Despair ensued as they had been warned since time immemorial.

Now the Punishment must come.

The Sea will turn violent from the island of Bali in Indonesia and will sweep everything in its path up to the very halls of the seat of government in the town of Jolo.

The entire length of Barangay Bus-Bus, the beach of Maubuh, and the military camp, will all be underwater. Nothing will survive.

No living thing will remain in Barangay (village) Asturias; the constabulary headquarters, and the waterways all over the town will burst forth from the earth and combine with the sea.

It is time for the good people of Sulu to return from whence they came or vanish from the face of the Earth.

Oh God of whatever faith, I plead with You to prove me false on this for the sake of Your beloved People, because You are Merciful and Oft-forgiving.

It is enough for me that I have relayed this admonition. If proven false, I will surrender to Your Will and happily carry the burden of public ridicule and disbelief, but instead be at peace, for having obeyed Your Command.

May God have mercy on us all for our arrogance.

The tidal wave or tsunami will be three times worse than it was in 1976. It will be of seismic origin, resulting from the distortion by several intolerable degrees of the Sphere. The Ring of Fire will explode into hell. The Pacific and Philippine Faults will seek to merge to maintain balance. It will be Armageddon.

The waters will never subside. All of the places mentioned here will remain underwater forevermore. Mother Earth is simply reclaiming what belongs to Her.

Be warned and go.

May God have mercy on us all.
