Nagmahal. Nasaktan. Di mo alam nandyan pala Sya sa tabi mo.

Friedrich Nietzche, an atheist, said that God is dead and He remained dead until now. God can not now see the sufferings of His creation because He is dead.

President Rodrigo Duterte also questioned,

“The problem is, I ask you, what if there is no God?… When a one-year-old or an18-month baby is taken from the mother’s arm, brought under a jeep and raped and killed, where is God?” 

“And in Syria, women and children who do not want to sex with the ISIS, they are burned. So, where is God? My God, where are you?”

The Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ through St. Luke(24:13-35):

[13] And behold, two of them went, the same day, to a town which was sixty furlongs from Jerusalem, named Emmaus.[14] And they talked together of all these things which had happened. [15] And it came to pass, that while they talked and reasoned with themselves, Jesus himself also drawing near, went with them.

[16] But their eyes were held, that they should not know him. [17] And he said to them: What are these discourses that you hold one with another as you walk, and are sad? [18] And the one of them, whose name was Cleophas, answering, said to him: Art thou only a stranger to Jerusalem, and hast not known the things that have been done there in these days? [19] To whom he said: What things? And they said: Concerning Jesus of Nazareth, who was a prophet, mighty in work and word before God and all the people; [20] And how our chief priests and princes delivered him to be condemned to death, and crucified him.

[21] But we hoped, that it was he that should have redeemed Israel: and now besides all this, today is the third day since these things were done. [22] Yea and certain women also of our company affrighted us, who before it was light, were at the sepulchre, [23] And not finding his body, came, saying, that they had also seen a vision of angels, who say that he is alive. [24] And some of our people went to the sepulchre, and found it so as the women had said, but him they found not. [25] Then he said to them: O foolish, and slow of heart to believe in all things which the prophets have spoken.

[26] Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and so to enter into his glory? [27] And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded to them in all the scriptures, the things that were concerning him. [28] And they drew nigh to the town, whither they were going: and he made as though he would go farther. [29] But they constrained him; saying: Stay with us, because it is towards evening, and the day is now far spent. And he went in with them. [30] And it came to pass, whilst he was at table with them, he took bread, and blessed, and brake, and gave to them.

[31] And their eyes were opened, and they knew him: and he vanished out of their sight. [32] And they said one to the other: Was not our heart burning within us, whilst he spoke in this way, and opened to us the scriptures? [33] And rising up, the same hour, they went back to Jerusalem: and they found the eleven gathered together, and those that were staying with them, [34] Saying: The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon. [35] And they told what things were done in the way; and how they knew him in the breaking of the bread.

So, where is God during injustice? Where is God during in the time of our sorrows? Where is God during war?

My answer is… He is with us but we still keep on our own failures and hindi tayo makamove on. 

He was with the disciples who think they were lost in the game. They don’t know Jesus was with them. We too suffer losing like them and we shout, “Nasaan ka Dios ko?” pero hindi mo alam nasa tabi lang Sya at binulag ka ni Satanas sa iyong kabiguan. Nasa tabi lang Sya. Wag tayong lumayo sa Kanya. Hihingi tayo ng enlightenment mula sa Kanya para makamove on tayo sa kabiguan.

Who are we refering in Rev. 12? Israel or Mary?

Now, Pastor John MacArthur and some pastors of the Protestantism said that it was not Mary who is in the Rev. 12, the Woman. Catholic Church said that it was Mary who was been attacked by the Devil. Gen. 3:16 is what now Mary done, crushing Satan in her heel that Eve can’t do in the beginning.

As Cathecism of the Catholic Church stated in paragraph 966…

966 “Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things, so that she might be the more fully conformed to her Son, the Lord of lords and conqueror of sin and death.” The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin is a singular participation in her Son’s Resurrection and an anticipation of the resurrection of other Christians:

In giving birth you kept your virginity; in your Dormition you did not leave the world, O Mother of God, but were joined to the source of Life. You conceived the living God and, by your prayers, will deliver our souls from death.

Associated with Scritures about a Virgin(not Israel) who will bear a Child.

Isaiah 7:14(DRB)

[14] Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign. Behold a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and his name shall be called Emmanuel.

Supported by Gospel of St. Luke(1:26-35)

[26] And in the sixth month, the angel Gabriel was sent from God into a city of Galilee, called Nazareth, [27] To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. [28] And the angel being come in, said unto her: Hail, full of grace, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. [29] Who having heard, was troubled at his saying, and thought with herself what manner of salutation this should be. [30] And the angel said to her: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace with God.

[31] Behold thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son; and thou shalt call his name Jesus. [32] He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the most High; and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his father; and he shall reign in the house of Jacob for ever. [33] And of his kingdom there shall be no end. [34] And Mary said to the angel: How shall this be done, because I know not man? [35] And the angel answering, said to her: The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the most High shall overshadow thee. And therefore also the Holy which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.

So, is the woman in Revelations a nation? Or really a woman named Mary?

You should be the judge! 😇
