are about to burst open
to make a heavy downpour
that could possibly cause floods.
But the prayers of the people
reached the gods responsible for helping them
in times of impending disasters or calamities
and stop the rain clouds from pouring down
and transform them into a tube instead
to hold the water tight.
The water is safely stored in the tube
and is locked up tight
that there is no drip.
The gods control the tube
and they open or close it
at any time they choose.
Even though these gods
are heavenly and powerful beings,
they are still under the rule
of the one and only Supreme Being
who is God The Father Almighty.
This is how the earth and the whole universe
are governed by the divine laws of God;
mankind will live with all the good things in life
as long as they serve and worship God.
But every time they sin,
they are punished with disasters and calamities.
But they can always call on God for mercy
so that the punishments will be less
or will not be totally carried out.
