Hello! Shalom! Aloha! Mabuhay!

If this is your first visit to Modern Apocrypha, I have only two recommendations for continuing on with minimal confusion:

1) Please begin with the first introductory post (found HERE) and work your way forward. Almost all the posts on this blog flow chronologically and will make more sense with the background and context of previous ones. Jumping in anywhere might be disorienting.

2) Please read along in the texts posted off to the right. I try not to summarize too much in the commentary and discussion, and being at least somewhat familiar with what we're discussing or I'm commenting on will be most beneficial and edifying for all involved. Plus, going along with the theme of this blog, any hidden truths to be brought to light will be found within the text itself and not necessarily within my ramblings.

Okay, fine, three recommendations:

3) Please read with an open heart, mind, and spirit. See what truths you can find in these works--ones which speak to you. Namaste : )

Logo of the Commission on Filipinos Overseas
In Ahkman, we see a type of Abraham, and as part of Ahkman's Abrahamic covenant, he's also given a land of inheritance to be passed on through his generations. This land of inheritance is pretty much the same as described by Jesus in Visions 3 (and later in Buka 8), namely all of the Philippines, Taiwan, and the surrounding islands. But the Lord also promises to guide Ahkman's descendants to other lands of inheritance throughout the world.

Again, the Lord promises Ahkman that his seed will be numerous and spread abroad in the earth and mix with the seed of all nations. If we take Ahkman as a principal ancestor of modern Filipinos, we've definitely seen this promise come to pass. As of 2013, there were over 10 million Filipinos living overseas on every continent. Over 3.5 million of those live in the United States, where they represent the second largest Asian American group, with Tagalog the fifth most spoken language. Filipinos have been inhabiting areas that would become part of the United States since the late 16th century.

In the final portion of this Abrahamic covenant, the Lord also prophesies that Ahkman's seed will bless the people of the world with their wealth. As they spread throughout the world, they will gather riches and bring them to their land of inheritance. They will become powerful because of this worldly wealth, but they will use these riches to bless others. Unknowingly, they will heed the admonition of Jacob, son of Lehi (see also Jesus' words at the end of Matt 6):
But before ye seek for riches, seek ye for the kingdom of God. And after ye have obtained a hope in Christ ye shall obtain riches, if ye seek them; and ye will seek them for the intent to do good--to clothe the naked, and to feed the hungry, and to liberate the captive, and to administer relief to the sick and the afflicted.
