The Super Villains of Ourselves

sThe Super Villains of Ourselves

Imagine yourself as Superman, unstoppable, a son of Jor-el. Your dad, the brightest scientist in Krypton encased you in an alien ship and in part 1 you grew up to be powerful.

Then in part 2, 3 Kryptonians broke free from their prison and come to planet earth. They decide that their goal is to find the most painful ways to torture you and give you a hard time.

For many of us this is a real story except that in real life, the 3 super villains are invisible.

Enter the Game of Life
“Is not this the kind of fasting I have chosen: to loose the chains of injustice and untie the cords of the yoke, to set the oppressed free and break every yoke?” Isaiah 58:6

I thought this passage was really for slave owners and cruel bosses. It still is but after 200 years of human rights and labor laws, there are very few slaves, count with them child abuse, battered women and abused helpers in the middle east. The abuses today are minute compared to the slaves eaten by lions and burn alive in the old days.

Hope: Cindy Jacob’s Word for the Philippines 2013

Hope: Cindy Jacob’s Word for the Philippines 2013

When I first heard that there were only 3 dead after the typhoon Yolanda. I felt shortchanged, so much hype.

Then the reality of the tragedy flooded and poured on, day after day. My heart goes to the people who lives in Leyte, Samar, Cebu, Northern Negros and Panay. There is just so much loss, suffering and pain.  The situation reminded me of Israel’s war with its own: Benjamin.

“The people went to . . .  where they sat before God until evening, raising their voices and weeping bitterly. Lord, God of Israel,” they cried, “why has this happened to Israel? Why should one tribe be missing from Israel today?”. Judges 19

After watching this video, hope is rising in my heart again because, I believe God is doing something new in the Philippines. It is also a time, of great shakening. We need to come together to not just pray but fast for our nation, because during this shakening, corruption, lawlessness and unrighteousness could rise up and triumph if we do not watch and pray.

Cindy Jacobs in her prophecy speaks hope and direction.

In March 2009, Cindy Jacobs spoke prophecies that were fulfilled already.

“The next two years, the Lord is showing me, are going to be extremely significant for the Philippines,” Jacobs said. “Either you’re gonna go on to greatness, it’s going to be that transformed nation, or I see that there’s going to be some troubled some times. So pray, pray, pray.”

She adds, “This is a time God is going to pull down the spirit of corruption, and God is going to release the spirit of truth and righteousness into this nation, because righteousness exalts a nation. The Lord has given many promises for the Philippines. I mean, the Philippines is going to be one of the wealthiest nations on the earth. The spirit of poverty will be broken.”

“We have this sense of destiny tonight.Jesus.The Lord would say to the Philippines” I am shaking everything that can be shaken so no man would glory in what I will do.For I have waited for a generation that I could raise up a purity and holiness in.And I am raising up firebrand.There is a forerunner anointing coming upon the youth of the Philippine that will prepare the way of the Lord even into the middle east,” says the Lord.

“Look and see what i will do in Mindanao,for I am going to visit in a way that you cannot imagine. I am coming to Mindanao”says the Lord,”as the God and Lord of hosts and I am going to start appearing”the Lord says”As a sign that I am going to truly change the nation, I am going to show myself to the Guerrilla leaders and I am going to come”says the Lord,”. And I am going to begin in the places in the Philippines that have been the bloodiest,the places where the Guerillas’ insurrection has been the strongest and I am ready to pour out a miracle anointing the Philippines such as the earth has never seen.For Indonesia they had a rushing mighty wind,but in the Philippines I will have the fire from heaven that will begin to fall. And this will be a purging fire and I will say I will even visit as even in the days of God.Do not think that I am not able to come in a day and begin to unravel the iniquities of the nation” says the Lord.

“I am going to visit the military.I am getting ready to come among the young military” and the Lord says, ”There’s going to be a revolution of righteousness that comes within the military. I am getting ready to dethrone everything that need to be dethroned.For even the bowls of heaven are full.”Oh I see the bowls in heaven are just getting ready to be tipped over the Philippines and”I am going to spill out my glory”.


What is encouraging to see is that God is faithful to fulfill his Word in the Philippines.  PRAY. God is omnipotent, but His nature is to use people and accomplish His work through people. God is a perfect gentleman. God wants to do something and He desires to do or give it when you pray.

Steel Design: The Case of the Disappearing Right Angle

From the dawn of the 21st Century, a startling change has begun. From the modular use of the “box” which replaced the ornate curves of the renaissance and classical architecture. The tide of Global Architecture is again moving.

This slideshow is an adventure into the peculiar forms of steel fabrication with a special focus on its implementation in Modern Designs today. The presentation was given by Terri Boake.

I Now Stand Here

I Now Stand Here
by Arch Ian Jay Bantilan

Three years into this goal, feeling battered is an understatement.

Written August 31, 2013 after HRM MBA Class. 

I now stand here in this wide field in the University where I have grown, studied and learned when I was a kid. Where I gaze, used to be endless fields of grass fenced by Eucalyptus, Pines and the eternal sky. Now I see fields of green disciplined by constant mowing for the purpose of Sports. This is a game of strength and will of which no other use of body but head and foot. In this Grandstand, I have witnessed formidable teams and mythic clubs who battled for supremacy in this arena.

A Warrior in the Information Age

Archian - Life, Bacolod, Architecture, Finances & Dubai

Just thinking a lot lately. I keep running around and felt beaten up and bruised like a prized fighter keeping his belt on the ring like Manny Pacquiao.  I beat up and get beaten time and time again on the ring, and all of these happened while I was sitting down here in Continue reading
