Hand On Chest
Controversial former military chief and Energy Secretary Angelo T. Reyes died inside the Loyola Memorial Park in Marikina City.
According to the Eastern Police District. He shot himself on the spot and a preliminary report showed that he had a bullet wound in the heart.
Reyes, it was recalled, became AFP chief of staff from 1999 to 2001. Shortly after his retirement from the military service in March 1, 2001, he was appointed as Defense Secretary by then former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.
Reyes, also a key figure during the People Power 2 that toppled former President Joseph Ejercito Estrada from power in January 2001, has been in the hot seat as of late due to allegations that received P50 million in “send-off” money after he retired from the AFP as claimed by retired Lt. Col. George Rabusa.
His remains were laid to rest at the Libingan ng mga Bayani (heroes’ cemetery) in Taguig City.
Mt 5:21 Ye have heard that it was said to them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whoever shall kill, shall be in danger of the judgment:
During his necrological service, Lt. Col. Edgardo “Boogie” de Leon, shared that he believes Reyes took his life to save the military institution.
In my opinion, Reyes is a coward and a murderer of himself and must not be accorded with a full military honor of bravery. I just hope that come judgment day, God will have mercy on his soul.
Lk 16:15 And he said to them, Ye are they who justify yourselves before men; but God knoweth your hearts: for that which is highly esteemed among men, is abomination in the sight of God.
Reyes listen to the dictates of the devil who is a murderer. He wants to kill the hidden man of the heart which is not corruptible.
1 Pet 3:4 But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price.
As shown in the picture, he laid his right hand on the chest but no where in my wildest imagination that there is another picture showing a pistol in his hand pointing to the heart.
Deut 32:39 See now that I, even I am he, and there is no god with me: I kill, and I make alive; I wound, and I heal: neither is there any that can deliver out of my hand.
He lost his faith on what God can do, belittling the power that made all things. Forgetting that, it is only God who can take our life.
This is my last song to Secretary Angelo Reyes who take his own life and to others who did the same mistake: ♫♪♫ Nobody, Nobody not you. ♪♫♪ And Nobody, Nobody not you. ♪♫♪
