Back in about 1987, the Holy Spirit told us that the wick of the trouble in the whole world is the Philippines. When this wick has been lit, then the world will be aglow.

This prophecy was told in a parable. Please note His use of wick (of the lamp), lit, and aglow to illustrate His point. What He meant here is that the trouble that will spread throught the world will be ignited in the Philippines.

It has been 13 years since the prophecy was revealed and that trouble referred to has not happened yet. But unknown to most people, this trouble is developing and soon will just engulf the whole world. This trouble is the problem at the Spratly Islands.

Back in 1987, this place was not even mentioned in the news. It was only recently when the problem escalated because of the claims to the whole or part of the Spratly Islands by China, Taiwan, Vietnam, Malaysia, Brunei and the Philippines. This island group is composed of atolls, reefs, small islands, and spans for 400 by 800 kilometers. It located in the South China Sea. It is rich in marine resources and has potential vast wealth of oil and natural gas.

One of the atolls that recently came into the attention of the world is called Mischief Reef. This is one of the reefs being claimed by the Philippines. China built structures on it which were later discovered by the Philippines.

The Chinese call this reef as "Mei Ji Jiao", meaning pretty little island (or reef). The Philippines, on the other hand, call it as Panganiban Reef, meaning dangerous reef or reef to be feared. Notice the connotation of the names: Mischief, Mei Ji Jiao, Panganiban. It seems that by China grabbing it because it is like a pretty jewel, it is doing a mischief. And the Philippines says, 'Hey, what you are doing is dangerous. That place is dangerous. It is to be feared.' Well, it won't be long and this danger will come into fruition.

In 1998, I asked the Holy Spirit whether the trouble that will be ignited in the Philippines is that of the Spratly Islands conflict. He answered in the affirmative. And He warned us that the war is nearing. It is very, very near.

So, my dear fellowmen, keep watch of the developments at the Spratly Islands. Be prepared. Prepare your souls for this eventuality. Pray for your own self and pray also for our fellowmen. To most of us, our life here on earth will not be long anymore. The Holy Spirit has been telling us that once this trouble has started, it will not end until it is the end.

With the vast array of weapons of mass destruction that the world possesses, it is not unthinkable that the next war can cause our annihilation. It is as if we are going to self-destruct. How I wish that we can prevent it.

For a comprehensive report on the Spratly Islands situation, I would like to refer you to the Military Analysis Network of the Federation of American Scientists at http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/ops/war/spratly.htm.




In March of 1999, I asked the Holy Spirit if the Aristean Calendar that I am proposing will be implemented in two years time. His answer to me was 'yes'. It was a definite 'yes'. His answer was not 'no' nor 'I do not know' nor 'maybe'. It was 'yes'. That is why I have confidence and I firmly believe that the Aristean Calendar, since it is God's calendar, will be implemented when we start the new millennium on January 1, 2001. Our wait will not be long anymore. It is just a matter of only a few months. God is never late. I have experienced and seen His workings. They happen in His time.

On December 31, 2000, I proclaimed the Aristean Calendar as the official standard primary calendar of the world beginning January 1, 2001. Please read topic 20 on proclamation at http://www.geocities.com/peacecrusader888/calendaridx.htm. I expect that after a transition period of 10 years, by 2011, the Aristean Calendar would have been fully implemented and the Gregorian Calendar, completely dropped off.
