Trending Now: Genesis 8:7-12 linked to Manila's Flood?
Why is Genesis 8:7-12 suddenly became popular in the Philippines? Let's take a look at this.
The date last Tuesday was August 7, 2012, shortened date is 8-7-12.
The NCR (National Capital Region, Manila) and other provinces were shocked to experience heavy rainfalls that occurred last Tuesday.
The Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration or PAGASA declared that there's no tropical cyclone within the Philippine Area of Responsibility and all these heavy downpours was mainly brought by the southwest monsoon.
A massive flood brought by the southwest monsoon rains submerged 80% of Metro Manila and other neighboring provinces. Flood deaths now climb to 60 and others were still missing.

Work and schools were called off last Tuesday because of the heavy rains and was extended until Wednesday. Other schools were used as an evacuation centers for those people whose houses are still submerged in water.
Until now, many families still seek refuge to basketball courts and evacuation centers far from the submerged areas until the water will subside on their homes.
But looking on the heavens, I can see dark clouds still towering us.
Some people were lucky enough to save some personal belongings but for some who don’t, the silent scream of help echoes everywhere, especially for the families who relied on everyday work to earn money for food.
Mountain of garbage spilled their secrets along with flood and made sickness worst. As what I’ve always read and hear: “the garbage you just threw away will get back to you someday.”
It’s a popular saying here among people who support the Clean and Green Movement to encourage people to dispose their garbage and waste properly.
It will take days again when the water will fully subside but for now, we all do hope for a sunnier tomorrow.
And also may I ask you to please pray for everyone’s safety and well-being.
What is interesting is that, the date was linked to the passage in the Bible found in Genesis 8:7-12 which talked about Noah and the Great Flood.
Do you think that the flood that submerged Philippine’s capital city is only a coincidence to the numbers which the passage refers?
Or the Genesis numbers represent a real event in the future that man hasn’t just noticed?
