June 12, Philippines Independence Day.
Celebrations in the Philippines
June 12 is a national holiday in the Philippines commemorating the 1898 declared independence from Spanish rule by Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo. In 1962 then-President Diosdado Macapagal made it a public holiday through a presidential proclamation.
President Marcos has greeted Filipinos, calling on them to learn from the past and to never again allow domination by any external force. Has he any idea how timely and how prescient this is given the pending SB1869 which will cede health control to the W.H.O and its IHRs? How this sits in light of the WEF’s One World Government that is being brought in? May his words translate to action and support of all Filipinos as we join the world community in fighting to keep national sovereignty!
Lunas Pilipinas have organized a nationwide Freedom Trail to pay tribute to those who have fought courageously to defend and win freedom for the Philippines.
The theme of our Freedom Trail is “BINHI NG KASARINLAN: Ako Ang Pag-Asa” (Seeds of Sovereignty: I Am Hope). At each historic shrine, flowers and prayers are being offered to set intentions for the beloved Philippines. Locations include:-

We are blessed by God and called to be a blessing to the nations.
“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples. But the Lord will rise upon you and His glory will be seen upon you. And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes all around and see; they all gather together, they come to you; your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried on the hip. Then you shall see and be radiant; your heart shall thrill and exalt, because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, the wealth of the nations shall come to you.”
BLESS THE PHILIPPINES
