The first message, actually from Facebook.com, tells that the boy was confined in SAVIORS HOSPITAL OF PAKIL LAGUNA, while the second one is GENERAL HOSPITAL OF BATAAN. If this is true, then what was really the hospital where he could be found? Other than that, the two tells about similar individual with the same disease, with alike school and age. However, there are too many BNHS school in the Philippines.
  • Balayan National High School - Balayan, Batangas
  • Balibago National High School - Barangay Balibago, Santa Rosa City, Laguna
  • Bacoor National High School - Bacoor City, Cavite
  • Bataan National High School - Bataan
  • And many more....

    2012 Habagat has connection with the Bible?


    Ever since, people often find the cause and effect of every living and non-living things under the sun, and even the reason of events that occurred which plagued the nation or gave benefit on them. Curiosity can kill cat., that's the essence of being a human. Without unlimited questions, desires and necessities there could be no progress to man-kind. Before, going to the moon is just a product of science fiction, but look to what we are right now, we have more knowledge about the moon than to our own planet.

    Well, that's a dramatic introduction to my subject. (Almost no connection...) Hahaha ...

    The reason why I started my article with that above is, till now, Filipinos are searching for cause behind the almost tragic not-a-storm weather that sunk Metro Manila for days. I'm talking about the 2012 Habagat.

    At the previous article here, I featured the similarities of 1972 Great Flood of Luzon and 2012 Habagat, that the reason why the event happened because of the disappearance of a religious thing. And now, they took (or blame) the Bible and even GOD for the tragedy.

    Guys 'di ba? (Guys, isn't it?)~
    (Date): 8-7-12
    nag-umpisa ang pagbaha.. (when the flood started..)

    Basahin mo sa BibLe or search mo (Read this is the Bible or search it)
    Genesis 8:7-12
    it's about Noah's Ark

    We think that maybe it is the reason why all of this is happening today.
    Even PAGASA says that: There's no storm detected...

    Nangyari talaga ang nasa Bible.. (What was told in the Bible had happened..)

    - Maybe God wants to remind us about our faith for him.
    Especially sa mga nakakalimot na diyan.. (Especially to those people who had forgotten..)

    if GOD
    is IMPORTANT
    to you..

    Spread this message.. (to) as many as you can.
    Please..


    Whoever read the message will think the Bible verse is about the flood sent by God to destroy the face of the earth, but actually it isn't.

    Genesis 8:7-12 (KING JAMES VERSION)
    (7) And he sent forth a raven, which went forth to and fro , until the waters were dried up from off the earth. (8) Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were abated from off the face of the ground; (9) But the dove found no rest for the sole of her foot, and she returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her , and pulled her in unto him into the ark. (10) And he stayed yet other seven days; and again he sent forth the dove out of the ark; (11) And the dove came in to him in the evening ; and, lo, in her mouth was an olive leaf pluckt off: so Noah knew that the waters were abated from off the earth. (12) And he stayed yet other seven days; and sent forth the dove; which returned not again unto him any more.


    The verse talks about what happened when the rain stopped and the sun shone. Though, it talks about the flood, but many people will misinterpret it.

    I also ask myself, what about the other books in the Bible, what could be the message if you use the 8:7-12? And here's the other verse that interest me:

    Isaiah 8:7-12 (New International Version)
    (7) therefore the Lord is about to bring against them the mighty floodwaters of the River-- the king of Assyria with all his pomp. It will overflow all its channels, run over all its banks (8) and sweep on into Judah, swirling over it, passing through it and reaching up to the neck. Its outspread wings will cover the breadth of your land, O Immanuel !" (9) Raise the war cry, you nations, and be shattered! Listen, all you distant lands. Prepare for battle, and be shattered! Prepare for battle, and be shattered! (10) Devise your strategy, but it will be thwarted; propose your plan, but it will not stand, for God is with us. (11) This is what the Lord says to me with his strong hand upon me, warning me not to follow the way of this people: (12) “Do not call conspiracy everything this people calls a conspiracy; do not fear what they fear, and do not dread it.


    Well, the rivers in Metro Manila overflowed which caused flood, and brought plenty of water in every city that reaches higher than the Filipino's height. Not only Metro Manila was flooded by the Habagat, but also the other provinces north of National Capital Region.
