Manila floods: the message behind

The recent flooding in Manila has brought a considerable loss of lives and property. Experts considered them as a direct proof of the effects of changes in environmental conditions such as global warming. But have we considered another angle beyond what is human perspective?

Events like this happened in the past and there are direct natural causes ruled out. Seldom do we give or decipher if the Creator has something to do with this. I don't want to sound pessimistic about this but I sensed there is some message far more than what is perceived by our eyes.

God promised Noah He will not wipe humans with a devastating flood again. Perhaps no rainbow ever appeared on the Friday when waters were poured from up high in the Philippines capital. Did God forget His promise? Absolutely not, even without the rainbow appearing in the sky. As evidence a lot of us are still alive.

This event is just a sign, a reminder that: it is not for man to limit population by legalizing abortion (through whatever means deceptive)-because if God wills it He can do it in a day; development must be carried with due respect on God's gifts (nature-man and earth) not at the expense of it-you can prosper economically but you should take control of the environment with proper zonal planning, drainage systems, etc.

We are now reminded that we have nothing to be proud of as an intelligent race, our leader should not shout to the world that they made us progressive because of their efforts, because God owns everything, He directs everything.
