Philippines, nation of idolatry, hear the Word of the Lord!

Update January 14, 2014

PNoy Declares January 20 National Day of Prayer and Solidarity

MANILA, Philippines – Following the series of calamities that tested the country’s resilience last year, President Benigno Aquino III has declared January 20 as National Day of Prayer and Solidarity…

…”Our unbreakable spirit and ability to recover find root in our firm belief in a benevolent God who has the perfect plan for all of us. These tragedies tell us that despite all our efforts, we are indeed powerless without God,” the President added.

It is very encouraging to hear the highest official of the land, the President of the Philippines, acknowledge that without God the nation is indeed powerless. I pray that everyone will take heed of his call to prayer. I pray that this day of national prayer be done according to His will. I pray that He will open the eyes of the Filipinos to give up false godliness and idolatry as we humble ourselves as a nation before Him. I pray that the True Church will take the lead in putting into action the Word of the Lord in 2 Chronicles 7:14 quoted twice in this article.

For all the readers and followers of this blog, please pray for the Philippines; and I thank everyone who is doing so, from the depths of my heart. The Lord bless and keep us all!

==============================================================================

My heart is heavy today as I see the ongoing Feast of the Black Nazarene on TV.  Since last week I have been praying for the Philippines as the pagan and idolatrous feast days are here again for another year. It is heartbreaking that majority of the Filipinos are blind about what they are doing for the religious idols of this nation. We have experienced real devastating calamities last year topped by Super Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) which left many places in Eastern Visayas in dire conditions to this day; yet as a nation, we have not awakened to the truth about our spiritual condition before the eyes of the Almighty.

As it Happens: Feast of the Black Nazarene

While the Filipinos blindly or ignorantly think that doing these religious feasts are pleasing God as they parade the idols they so believe as the image of God, the truth is that they are actually hurting Him. My dream on January 12, 2012 showed how such idolatry looks like in the spirit. This is what I wrote of the dream in “My Encounters with the Lord:”

On January 12, 2012, I dreamed of the Lord in His human form. I was with Him, singing praises to Him while He watched and listened intently. I remember singing 3 songs to Him. When I sang “He is Exalted,” His expression changed. His meek human eyes transformed into the fierce eyes of a lion. Then I thought, “Truly, He is the Lion of Judah.” Then the Lord hugged me. Oh, what a blessing I felt!

In another scene, I saw the Lord lying in an enclosed carriage. His head was bleeding profusely from the crown which was the crown of the “Sto. Nino.”

Note: The Sinulog Festival in Cebu which features the Sto. Nino is on the third Sunday of this month.

This picture below is similar to what I saw in the dream except that instead of a graven image, the Lord Jesus was Himself inside the carriage. He was very much alive and bleeding because of the crown stuck upon His head.

The Retovado Review: Good Friday, Bago City, Negros Occidental

Idolatry is not only abominable to God; it is deeply hurting Him. It is like killing Him over and over or making Him dead as I felt in the dream while He’s actually alive. My heart aches as I recall the sobering scene in my dream. People were so insensitive and blind that they didn’t seem to see what I witnessed of the Lord inside the encased carriage. Filipinos wake up! You are not pleasing Him nor worshiping Him with such abomination of parading the graven images and going crazy over those idols as if they truly can do you good. See for yourself what God says of graven images and bowing to them.

The first 3 commandments (Exodus 20:2-7) that God Himself wrote on stone tablets and handed to Moses are centered about who He is and how men should honor Him; and what He does to those who violate those commands. Doing those things are in fact hatred towards God.

Exodus 20

And God spake all these words, saying,

I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.

Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth.

Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;

And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments.

Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain; for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that taketh his name in vain.

Remember the sabbath day, to keep it holy.

Six days shalt thou labour, and do all thy work:

10 But the seventh day is the sabbath of the Lord thy God: in it thou shalt not do any work, thou, nor thy son, nor thy daughter, thy manservant, nor thy maidservant, nor thy cattle, nor thy stranger that is within thy gates:

11 For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the Lord blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it.

12 Honour thy father and thy mother: that thy days may be long upon the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

13 Thou shalt not kill.

14 Thou shalt not commit adultery.

15 Thou shalt not steal.

16 Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

17 Thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s house, thou shalt not covet thy neighbour’s wife, nor his manservant, nor his maidservant, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is thy neighbour’s.

Sadly, the Roman Catholic Church altered the commandments of God significantly by removing the second commandment (Exodus 20:4-6) that speaks against making and bowing to a graven image of any likeness either in heaven above or on earth below. The unsuspecting masses believe that there is nothing wrong with the 10 Commandments as they remain 10 in the RCC version. They did it by summarizing and splitting the last commandment in two parts namely:

“Thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s wife;

Thou shall not covet thy neighbor’s goods.

God is visiting the iniquities of the Filipinos from generation to generation. It is a never-ending cycle of curse until we renounce this sin of idolatry and learn to worship only Him. The article I wrote after the Super Storm in November last year spoke of more disasters coming to this nation. After then, the Lord gave me more dreams of judgment against this nation of religious shrines and idols. I dreamed of another earthquake with an ensuing tsunami. I dreamed twice of great floods, one hits  Visayas and the other Metro Manila; particularly submerged was Quezon City especially around Sto. Domingo Church. At another time in my prayer, I saw Robinson’s Galleria and the Edsa Shrine falling from a strong earthquake. On December 10 last year, around lunchtime, I had a vivid dream of civil unrest suggesting Makati area and spreading to different parts of Metro Manila. In that dream, while the President was appealing to the public to be calm as the situation was already under control, another explosion was heard somewhere.

Will these dreams and visions come to pass? I pray that they will not. And here’s what the Lord gave me that He may not bring judgments in this nation. On Dec. 18, 2013 I woke up around 4:00 a.m. with this message:

 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land (2 Chronicles 7:14).

But who are the people of God that He wants to come to Him? The Christian Church!

It is easy to point fingers to the Roman Catholics whose idols are very visible; and never mind their way of life because we know that righteousness without Christ is as filthy as rags (Isaiah 64:6; Romans 10:3). But what about the so-called Christian Church? The Lord also sees idolatry, worldliness and indecency within the Christian Church. This is how the Lord showed me the spiritual sickness of the Church.

On February 13, 2011, I dreamed that I was a bride; but my unknown groom and I could not move from where we were as the highway was so filthy. Black and foul mud filled the huge highway. The following day I dreamed of two brides again. They were my roommates who were also sisters. The older bride was wearing an indecent gown that exposes some flesh which is the exact opposite of her actual wedding dress when she got married. The younger bride’s gown looked wholesome but she was immersed in herself as she listened to the music on the radio. The song was expressing grief over the unfairness of life and sounded very worldly. As the song ended I heard the DJ said, “Why not just commit suicide?”

Since I was not yet adept to prophetic dreams, I could not make sense of these dreams about “brides.” I prayed for understanding and the Lord answered and woke me up not many days later with this message, “The bride is the Church.”

In another unforgettable dream sometime in 2012, I was caught between going to the Church uphill or the Church on the plain. This Church on the plain is a real church in Quezon City. I was in a park on a plateau  in between; I looked up to the one uphill and saw no one there. I looked down on the Church below and saw many going that way. I decided to go where people streamed. As I stood on the doorway I immediately noticed the disarray contrary to how this church appears in reality. The youth whom I know in reality as highly disciplined especially during worship, were very unruly and noisy. They were eating and laughing in the kitchen which was separated only by a curtain from the worship hall. The congregation which is also normally well-mannered and formally dressed in reality, appeared the opposite in the dream. Some where on walking shorts and slippers, some in their house dress and some barefoot. I realized that I too was barefoot as in a hurry I forgot my sandals in the park. I ran outside to go back and get my sandals; and I almost stumbled as I was going to step on the graven idols buried on the stone pavement just enough to conceal them from the surface. I stopped to look at the idols and I was aghast.

In fairness with this Church in Quezon City, the Lord revealed that this situation runs rampant in many churches in the Philippines, both big and small ones.

My dream of the two brides above had a second scene just as my dream of myself as a bride had another scene; but I will reserve that part for another article which speaks of the judgment that begins in the House of God. Meanwhile, I appeal to the Church, consider your ways and remember your first love. We cannot help those who are lost in religious idolatry and other manners of ungodliness in this nation unless we live up to our calling as the righteous and holy “Bride of Christ.” The fate of our nation, the Philippines, depends on us, the people of God. Hear His word today!

 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land!

With love in Christ Jesus,

Cynthia

    • Hi Deirdre,

      The Philippines has many religious festivals. These are traditions that became an important part of the Filipino culture. Most of these festivities are tourist attractions like the Sinulog in Cebu and Mascara in Bacolod. Here in Bohol, these fiestas are the most celebrated holidays more than Christmas, and sadly, all year round these festivities don’t seem to end for every town has its Patron Saint that the people honor. Indeed, may the Lord have mercy and open the eyes of my countrymen.

      Thanks, sister, for the prayers.

      Love and blessings,

      Cynthia

  1. Hi Cynthia;

    Dear sister, I just want to encourage you to always stay in obedience to our Lord and Savior. It was He Who gave you the rod of prophetic authority over the entire nation of the Philippines, and as you send out His words we know they will not return void but that many Filipinos are indeed heeding the call of repentance. These new saints, in turn, will help others by their example of turning to God. There will come a time when you will have to face the false prophets within your country, so I would encourage all the readers to give you fervent prayer support as you boldly proclaim His words to the tens of millions of Filipinos who do not hear the Truth spoken in their churches.

    Love and Blessings in Yeshua,

    Carlos

    • Hi Cynthia,
      what Carlos has said is so true. Keep the faith, stand firm dear sister. You are doing an amazing work there, and I am in awe of your strength of character. The Father knows who He has called and that they are able to do all things through Him that strengthens. When your knees feel weak, He will strengthen them. The Lord has just given me this wonderful chapter for you, Cynthia. It is Isaiah 62. I know you will take away from it all that He wants you to, but I thought one verse stood out here as speaking directly to you : vs4 “It will no longer be said to you “Forsaken”, Nor to your land will it any longer be said, “Desolate”; But you will be called, “My delight is in her,” And your land, “Married”; For the Lord delights in you, And to Him your land will be married.
      You see, He rewards the faithful who endure
      God bless, dear sister
      sending much love
      Alison

      • Hi Alison,

        What a message! Thank you so much for sharing Isaiah 62 and the particular verse. I am amazed for the Lord actually gave that to me sometime ago. In fact, I marked it in my old Bible. Your giving it to me is both a reminder and confirmation.

        Thank you also for the encouraging comment. I want to make clear that I am nothing, literally nothing apart from Him. The strength of character you are saying of me is only because of Him in me, so, I give Him all the glory and honor for He alone deserves them! Love you, dear sister…

        Praying for you,

        Cynthia

    • Hi Carlos,

      Thank you so much, dear brother, for such an encouragement; and for reminding me of the rod. I have actually asked God a few times especially during attacks, if He has not taken back the rod yet. I am grateful that He has not. It is comforting that the Lord let me keep the rod in my pocket and reminds me of it from time to time, which means that the anointing remains. In spite of the discouragement seeing the Filipinos year in and year out in these folly, I believe indeed, that the Word of the Lord won’t return to Him void. Thus, I will continue to speak as He directs for even if there is but one person who receives the TRUTH and repent, then God has accomplished His purpose through this blog.

      Again, thank you, my dear brother. Be blessed and stay safe in His arms!

      Love in Yeshua,

      Cynthia

  2. Back again, not finished!
    I don’t know what you are doing right now but I am praying asking the Lord to pour out His Spirit upon you. A special touch. I believe you need one at this time. That the room where you are will be filled with His tangible Presence. May you be encouraged greatly of the Lord right now and given renewed strength to go on. And the peace that passes all understanding be with you. Amen, let it be so Lord Jesus.

    • Thank you again, Alison. I always enjoy being alone with the Lord. Praise God, when the kids are in school, I literally have that time alone with Him; and yes, His Presence is very tangible. Thank you for the prayers and for the encouragement. I am indeed greatly encouraged, dear sister.

      Love and blessings,

      Cynthia

  3. This comment is from a dear sister, Angela:
    ==================================================

    (tried to reply to your blog entry and would not let me post—the following is what I wanted to post as a reply—, if its pertinent, plz post if not, no worries—ahh BTW— the info I wrote was found in a neat site that I had uncovered a few yrs back—-one of the guys is an Italian convert–HUGE site with lots of good info—but as in all things discernment— http://www.frontlinemin.org/rcc.asp
    **********************************************************************************************************

    1st of all let me say that I am happy to see you writing again and hope all is well with you!!!!

    2nd—-how I can relate to what you have written. As you know I am here in Italy and Idolatry IS rampant here with the RCC. We have feast days for all sorts of saints, Mary of this, Mary of that, saints names days, I have had it with saints, and processions and statues carried, people bowing and kissing the feet of these saints, etc etc
    I am going to add a few tidbits, I don’t remember if I had mentioned them to you, if I did plz disregard, if not useful pieces of info. YES you are correct, all the Bibles (RCC) here have the messed with 10 commandments, they even teach it at Sunday school.
    Ok so here goes, and next time a catholic tries to explain a few things to you—lead them to do their own research if they dare—Year instituted by RCC (this is a short list , there are others)

    yr 600-Prayers directed to Mary, dead saints, and angels.
    786 -Worship of cross, images, and relics authorized.
    1090- Rosary, repetitious praying with beads, invented by Peter the Hermit.
    1229-Bible placed on Index of Forbidden Books in Toulouse.
    1854-Immaculate Conception of Mary, proclaimed by Pope Pius IX. ***(not that long ago either)
    1870-Infallibility of the Pope, proclaimed by Vatican Council.

    *******This next one is a doozy, don’t know about you but I know there was only one on a cross, crucified for my sins—and it wasn’t a woman
    1922-Virgin Mary proclaimed co-redeemer with Jesus by Pope Benedict XV.

    *******Here’s another doozy
    “At the command of Mary all obey, even God. She is omnipotent, for the queen, according to all laws, enjoys the same privileges as the king; and since the son’s power also belongs to the mother, this Mother is made omnipotent by an omnipotent Son. Therefore, . . . God has put the whole Church not only under the patronage, but even under the power and authority, of Mary” (The Glories of Mary [abridged version] by St. Alfonsus Liguori, p. 114.)

    So you see sweetie, we too are so entrenched in this mire and muck of idolatry. Add to this a Pope that is also a weeeeeeeeeee bit liberal—-and we have a great recipe for wrath. For as much as God loves, he can also get a bit angry—because when enough is enough, HE MEANS IT!!! One day ALL knees shall bend and I really feel sorry for them when they realize the error of their ways and only hope that there will be even a nanosecond to repent before lights out and they head to a warmer climate—and it won’t be a Club Med 5 star resort.

    Blessings, Hugs and Kisses!!!!! ………….angela

    • Hi sweet sister Angela,

      Thank you for sharing such helpful information. That’s very relevant and worth knowing indeed! I pray that the Lord will put in the hearts of these people to seek the Truth. May they be not satisfied with the artificial gods and seek the One True, Omnipotent God. May they yearn for the Living God not those with ears that don’t hear, eyes that don’t see and hands and feet that don’t move! May they see the folly of bowing to something that they themselves made.

      Love and blessings to you, my dear sister!

    • Hi Vania,

      I praise God that I found you! Thank you for communicating. I will email you once I’m done with another article which I am presently writing.

      Love in Yeshua,

      Cynthia

  5. God Bless You, you speak from the heart and in truth. God is challenging His people who claim to be His to come out from amongst them be separate. We can tear down every idol but if we live worldly lives this is just as harmful. We are the temple of the Lord! Do we set unclean things before our eyes? The biggest idol in the world today is celebrity and gossip and pornography. Do we turn our TVs on each day? Be assured if you do your home has opened the door to every perversion. If Christ is in us, does He want to see this?
    My heart aches for a church a bride that uses hollywood and TV to preach the word. God needs no statues, comedians or magicians to help His mighty work. The Holy Spirit came to teach and bring understanding. I pray for our brethren to put away all this uncleanness so we can begin to talk to one another again and worship in spirit and truth.

    • Thank you, cookofdhowz, for such an inspiring comment, and for speaking the truth as well. Indeed, the true believers, the Bride of Christ must learn to walk in Spirit and Truth and live pure and holy life just as our God is holy. God bless and thanks so much for coming to the blog.

      Blessings,

      Cynthia

  7. Hi Cynthia. God bless you and I agree with you that He suffers from these false worship most of us give Him when we think it is actually pleasing Him. It is so very obvious in His words that He is against this practice and yet we, who claim ourselves as religious, carry on defending it by making up excuses. We have eyes but how is it that such a simple truth that can be easily read in the Bible is twisted in such great proportions that it has turned complex. I believe that when the Lord wrote the commandment, he intended it so that even men of simple intelligence would be able to understand. It wouldn’t take a scholar to comprehend such a simple rule. Now, I used to be Catholic. I won’t deny my origin. But I just can’t explain what happened to me. One day I just woke up and found that all this time I knew that my ways are somehow wrong. I am not against catholicism at all. I have maNY friends and loved ones who are devout Catholics. But I somehow decided to take a breather from the religion. I have just considered the fact that maybe these are all part of Satan’s plan to deceive us. He wants us to believe that we are doing fine when it is actually an offense to God. You can see many warninggs in the bible about his deception of even the elect. He is the father of lies after all, as Jesus called him. He may appear as an angel of light and deceive many. So the bible warns us many times not to fall in his trap. Now, I do not mean to cause any uproar, ill feelings or fights by posting this. I’d just like people to stop for a minute and reflect on this. I know a minute is too much of a luxury to spare nowadays because of our busy lives but if it is something that can compromise your souls for all eternity, aren’t you willing to spare a little? I don’t claim to be a bible scholar because honestly, I’ve just began carefully studying it just recently. But maybe that’s what we all need- to stop listening to “preachers” for some time and take the opportunity to listen to what our own hearts and souls have to say on this topic.

    • Hi Mikko,

      You have spoken an excellent truth. May the Lord touch those who read your comment. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and experience. Without a doubt, it was the Holy Spirit who worked in your heart that you might seek Him, as the Lord Jesus said in John 6:44, “No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.”

      Thus, as we share the Gospel, let us also pray that the Father will touch and draw those who hear that they too may receive the gift of salvation through Jesus Christ. May He open their eyes and ears that they may see the deception and turn away from the errors of false worship and false doctrines of religion; that they may worship only Him in Spirit and Truth.

      Thank you and God bless you, brother, as you continue to diligently study His Word. I pray the Spirit of revelation guide and teach you as you seek Him with all of your heart and soul.

      Blessings,
      Cynthia
