Who's with Holy Spirit of God?

GALATIANS 5:16-25 (16) What I say is this: let the Spirit direct your lives, and you will not satisfy the desires of the human nature.(17) For what our human nature wants is opposed to what the Spirit wants, and what the Spirit wants is opposed to what our human nature wants. These two are enemies, and this means that you cannot do what you want to do.(18) If the Spirit leads you, then you are not subject to the Law.(19) What human nature does is quite plain. It shows itself in immoral, filthy, and indecent actions; (20) in worship of idols and witchcraft. People become enemies and they fight; they become jealous, angry, and ambitious. They separate into parties and groups;(21) they are envious, get drunk, have orgies, and do other things like these. I warn you now as I have before: those who do these things will not possess the Kingdom of God.(22)But the Spirit produces love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, (23)humility, and self-control. There is no law against such things as these. (24)And those who belong to Christ Jesus have put to death their human nature with all its passions and desires. (25)The Spirit has given us life; he must also control our lives. -------------- Thank you so much Lord for all the Blessings, Good Health and wisdom. And thank you also to the gift of life and Faith you gave. Its right to give You Praise and thanks.

You Want The Spratly?-- then lets claim it Filipinos

Let's take a glance on the underlying issues about SPRATLY Islands.... What's the true status now on the claims of Philippines to these islands with very rich natural oil reserves? What's our current government doing now? Are they insisting our claims or inhibiting then???
To consider the geographical location of the Philippines as shown below by longitudinal measurement on area of responsibility, obviously we have greater right against our neighboring countries claiming it (i.e., China, Vietnam, Malaysia)...

What is our stand on this game of territorial claims to SPRATLY Islands? Should we just be silently sitting out there and just see the SPRATLY Islands grabbed into the hands of our neighboring countries like what our current government is doing now in exchange to their personal interests?
Why is it that China, Taiwan, Vietnam and the others alike were so persistent to their claims to these islands? These islands are not barren lands, these are rich sources of oil & gas reserves, why does our government exchanged the worth millions of our potential resources into a penny gift of our neighbors???
Friends, wake up... SPRATLY Islands is one source to arise the sinking economy of the Philippines and we should possess that land because we are the heirs to rightly own it....

Maraming pagsubok na ang dumaan. Maraming beses na rin tumanggap ng mga hamon at kabiguan. Ngunit bakit merun pa ring bansa na kung tawagin ay Pilipinas, isang republika at malaya ang lahat na sino man. Ngunit bakit sa bawat pagsubok na dumaan sa bansang ito wala pa ring pagbabago? Sino ang dapat merun karapatan para mapaunlad ang isang bansa. Ang mamayan ba? o ang mga namumuno sa bayan?

Halimbawa. Sa traffic light. Tatlo ang kulay. Pula - ibig sabihin hinto/tigil.
berde - tuloy/abante
Dilaw - humanda.
Anu ba kaugnayan nitong mga kulay na'to sa buhay natin. Kung marunong kang sumunod dito, isa kang disiplinado at mabuting mamayan ng isang bansa. Simple pero makahulugan. Ilan kaya ang mga sumusunod kasya nagwawalang bahala na lng? Ano ba ang mas matimbang? paniniwala, pananampalataya,at pagtitiwala, o disiplina, kaalaman, determinasyon at pagkukusa. Alin ba sa mga ito meroon tayo, alin ba sa mga ito dapat taglayin natin?

Sabi ng iilan nasasalamin daw sa bansa kung sino at ano ang nakatira dito, at nasasalamin din sa mga tao kung ano at sino ang pinuno at namamahala sa kanila, at nasasalamin din sa pinuno ang bansa at bayang pinapamunuan nito. Kung gayong lahat pala ay meroon pawang kaugnayan sa bawat isa. Pagkakaisa ang susi. Susi saan? Susi sa pag-unlad? Baka susi pagtatagumpay at katahimikan ng bansa. Papano ung susi sa pag-unlad? Di pa maaring disiplina, determinasyon, kaalaman at pagsisikap? Paano? Magsimula sa sarili, hanggang sa pamilya, barangay, bayan, lungsod, probinsya, rehiyon, at hanggang buong bansa.
Pabor ako sa may sabi na, kapag ang lider merun determinasyon at pagtitiwala, merun dunong at tapang, merun kaalaman at pagpupursige, at merung mamayang bukas ang isipan, disiplina at pagkukusa. Lahat magiging matagumpay. Mabuhay ka Pilipinas. Mabuhay tayong mga Filipino. God bless the Philippines
