3 22 Hindi tulad nuong una, sa bahay na ginawa’y iba ang tumira 22 Hindi tulad nuong una, sa bahay na ginawa’y iba ang tumira. Sa tanim na halama’y iba ang nakinabang. Tulad ng punongkahoy hahaba ang buhay ng aking hirang, lubos nilang papakinabangan ang kanilang pinagpaguran. 23 Anumang gawaing paghirapan nila’y tiyak na magbubunga, at hindi magdaranas ng mga sakuna ang mga anak nila; pagpapalain ko ang lahi nila, at maging ang mga susunod pa. 24 Ang dalangin nila kahit hindi pa tapos ay aking diringgin, at ibibigay ko ang kanilang hinihiling.Isa 65:22-2422 No longer will they build houses and others live in them, or plant and others eat. For as the days of a tree, so will be the days of my people; my chosen ones will long enjoy the works of their hands.23 They will not toil in vain or bear children doomed to misfortune; for they will be a people blessed by the Lord, they and their descendants with them24 Before they call I will answer; while they are still speaking I will hear.
4 Are we one with this???Today, popularity alone will not guarantee victory.Elections is nothing but MONEY politics.It makes the media go wild and crazy.Manipulated Survey and Paid Ads are their tools!Money and/or promise of position in government makes the adrenalin of political operators and mercenaries rise.Business for profit is the dominating interest.Public office became a mere extension of the big business to protect their economic agenda. They fund winnable candidates.Corruption means COMELEC.COMELEC only means Commission.Sacred votes no more… Bcoz of PCOS!OLIGARCHS AND FAMILY DYNASTY RULES!Not to mention the role of the “Unseen Hands”.C.I.A.
