"There came then his brethren and his mother" - Pandemics in 2003, 2020, and Possibly 2037



A Park around Tokyo (with cherry blossoms and rain drops)


Pandemics in 2003, 2020, and Possibly 2037

The SARS pandemic set off in China in 2003.  The corona-virus pandemic set off in China in 2020.  And another pandemic is estimated to set off in 2037, since the interval between these years is the primary number of 17.

The total number of deaths in the 2003 pandemic was globally less than 1000, while that in the 2020 pandemic may be predicted to be 300,000.  And that in the coming new pandemic, probably, in 2037 may be predicted to be 90 million, which means a real crisis of the current human civilization.

Immediately before the 21st century, that is in late 1990s, some people thought that the end of the world was near.  However, the history is long, and the crucial time must have some length of a period.  Therefore, it is no wonder that the end of the world comes in the length of a period of 20 or 30 years.  Or maybe the end of the world would come not at a certain point of time but spreading over 70 years, since the Jerusalem Temple was destroyed about A.D. 70 while Christ Jesus came to this world around A.D.1, putting an end to the world of the old Judaism before Christ Jesus.

Therefore, the expected next pandemic in 2037 can really put an end to the present human civilization.  In this context, this corona-virus pandemic can be regarded as a drill for the decisive one in 2037.       

The evil of the present human civilization can be seen symbolically in China, getting prosperous by abusing the market economy and advanced technologies while keeping its authoritarian regime.  So the next pandemic might be generated in China, too.  And, it is also symbolic that the European countries having strong ties with China and the U.S. having helped excessively China develop its economy in late 1990s are suffering gravely this corona-virus.

With the assumption of the magnitude, 90 million deaths, of the expected 2037 pandemic in comparison to the present corona virus pandemic, the human civilization should suffer a decisive influence.  Its progress might be stopped or changed in a way beyond our imagination of today so that our civilization might start to decline.  And consequently, the mankind might not thrive in the 22nd century.  Or robots with AI might take over as the ruler of the world, replacing the mankind.

In this context, the mankind having enjoyed civilization based on Christianity since the coming of Christ Jesus 2000 years after Abraham is doomed 2000 years after Christ Jesus.  It may be no wonder, since the mankind crucified and killed the Son of God around A.D. 30.  While the God granted a respite of  2000 years, the mankind has not shown enough faith and respect to the God.  So, it is natural that the God sends Angles of Death to the human world.

In the 22nd century, a robot with AI might write a text book of the human history: "Therefore, the mankind went extinct in the 21st century with mysterious pandemics."

However, it is also no wonder that the God will change His mind if the mankind repent enough to expel those brainwashed by Satan from the mankind in the 21st century.  And some people might write a text book of the human history in the 22nd century: "As we repented enough and fought against Satan, the God stopped destroying the human world on the brink of extermination due to the 1937 pandemic.  Bless the God!"

"he that cometh from heaven is above all" - 70 Million People Required to Follow the God




A Park around Tokyo (with rape blossoms and cherry blossoms)

70 Million People Required to Follow the God

Theoretically, it is impossible that the mankind will prosper forever if a major portion of mankind follow Satan or sell their souls to Satan betraying the God.

And today, we rarely see people who follow the God and observe the teaching of the God, since most of people love money more than love, peace, and justice.  People hate one another and fight among themselves ultimately over money.  To defeat others and get more money, most of people follow Satan and are brainwashed by Satan.  How would the God allow such mankind to prosper forever?

So, an pandemic sometimes occurred in the human history.  But each time, the God stopped a tragedy, so that the mankind could go on thriving.  It means that the God found at least 1% ore more of the mankind who faithfully followed the God during each pandemic.  (For example, there is at least one country, the Vatican, that is, however nominally, dedicated to praying to the God among less than 200 countries in the world.)  Otherwise, the God must have allowed a pandemic to terminate the mankind.

Today, there are seven billion people on the earth, and one percent of them means 70 million.  If 70 million people in this world follow the God, fighting against Satan, the God would not let a pandemic defeat the mankind.

But can we be confident that there are 70 million people who love the God, hating Satan and money?

If not, but if still we can survive a pandemic, it means the God is especially tolerant to the mankind.

I think that we should observer the current pandemic caused by the corona viruses from the above point of view.

Most probably, we can survive this case.  This pandemic will be over in several months.  But, sooner or later, another pandemic will surely come.  And there is no assurance that the God will show any tolerance on the next occasion, since it seems to be very difficult that there will be 70 million believers in the God in this human world in the near future.   

Incidentally, to enhance our immunity to conquer malicious viruses, it must be effective to read the Bible, cleans our minds and spirits, and ask help from the God.  If Satan is behind viruses, their harming power would be abated by the holy power of the Bible.  And if the Angel of Death sent by the God is behind viruses, it will surely show compassion to us.

So, this pandemic may be part of the battle between Angels of the God and devils of Satan.

"All sins shall be forgiven unto the sons of men" - The Third Global Crisis in the 21st Century



Full Cherry Blossoms in a Park with a Shinto Shrine around Tokyo


The Third Global Crisis in the 21st Century

The corona viruses generated  in Wuhan in China in late 2019 has now spread all over the world as follows:

The number of infected people (deaths) in each country as of March 27, 2020:
USA                     85,381 (1,271)
China (mainland) 81,340 (3,292)
Italy                      80,539 (8,165)
Spain                    64,059 (4,858)
Germany              43,165 (264)
Iran                      32,332 (2,378)
France                  29,155 (1,696)
UK                       11,658 (578)
Switzerland         10,714 (161)
South Korea          9,332 (139)
...
JAPAN                  2,182 (59) [including 712 of crews and passengers in the cruise]

So, even in Japan, the general public was requested to avoid going outdoors into (otherwise busy) towns, parks, events, etc., so that many of cherry blossom viewers were not found in a park around Tokyo today.

This is the third global crisis since the beginning of the 21st century, following the 9/11 Terror in 2001, and the Financial Crisis in 2008.

But for Japan, it is the second crisis in the 21st century in terms of the magnitude of substantial influence on the Japanese society, following the Great Tsunami/Fukushima nuclear disaster in 2011.

When I read the Bible, I found a kind of holy revelation: This pandemics from the corona viruses would start to dwindle only after five-month rampancy.  Therefore, it will start to stop spreading in China in May,  Japan in June, and USA/Europe in July.

Accordingly, the 2020 Tokyo Olympics Games postponed to 2021 will be surely held and practiced.

However, although the Bible also suggested that this pandemic would come to an end sooner or later, the second disaster (pandemic) should be more devastating, although it is unknown when it will come.
   
In the Middles Ages, Europe suffered a pandemic a few times where the whole European population reduced almost by half.  But Christianity and the Vatican survived.

In the 21st century, a similar tragedy might happen in the global scale.  Or the end of the world having been supposed by some people to come at the end of the 20st century might be just delayed for 20 years or so,.

But I have a feeling that the God allowed this pandemic to occur in this timing due to a certain concrete incident around a certain believer, since the 2020 Tokyo Olympics seem to be targeted.

Anyway, it is not only Satan that kills men incongruously, but also the God may send the Angel of Death to the human world.  It is because the God is the lord of men.  The God can give and take away life to/from anybody at His will.

Indeed, praise the Lord, God, Almighty.

"Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age" - Of Him shall be Much Required




Early Cherry Blossoms in Park around Tokyo

Of Him shall be Much Required

The maximum estimated size of the observable universe is 93 billion-light year in the diameter, while the least size of a particle that can exist in the universe is the Planck length of 10 to the minus 35 power.

They are not infinitely large or small.  We live in the universe with the upper limit and the lower limit.  However, there are no problems if we assume that we live in the infinitely large universe that can be divided into any small size.

And more over, our life length is between the time needed for us to breath once after our birth to about 120 years, the time nobody has ever lived according to scientific records.  Everything has the upper limit and the lower limit in our lives, although we easily imagine a boundless world and life.

The God must live in the world where the concepts of limit and bound are meaningless, since He must be able to shift any limits and bounds.

Nothing can restrict God's presence and ability.  From the beginning, everything that exists concretely or conceptually must be made possible by existence of the God.

However the Bible reads: Lu:12:48: But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.

Then what is required for the God who is almighty and who requires it of God?

However, it is clear that the more the mankind succeeds, gets rich, and enjoys the civilization, the more will be required of it.  And if we cannot respond to such a requirement, punishment must be all the more severe.

In this context, we may encounter any dangerous viruses, now that we have established this super-rich civilization.

"the multitude cometh together again" - A Kind of TV Set in each Brain




Mt. Fuji, 100 km from around Tokyo

A Kind of TV Set in each Brain

How can we see things with our eyes?

The image of an object to be seen is transformed to electric signals through the eyes, and the  electric signals are sent to the brain through circuits and networks of brain cells.  And specific parts of the brain consisting of brain cells receive these electric signals, and the brain reproduce the image from  electric signals.

It may be compared to a TV set showing an image on its screen after receiving electric signals.  But who sees the reproduced image in the brain, although there is an audience, in the case of TV, who watches a TV display?

The brains cells are made of molecules and atoms that don't have minds.  No matter how much visual information of an image is collected and accumulated in brain cells, this information is in the form of electric signals, which are not a planar or stereo image of an object.  What is the mechanism in the brain cells that can be compared to a TV set and its screen or monitor display?  No cells or molecules can reconstruct the image from the signals and understand the signals as the image.

Put simply, there must be somebody in the brain who can  reconstruct the image from the signals and understand the image.

These electric signals should be kept in the forma of electromagnetic waves, which are generated by electric current with signals.  As the brain can be compared to a computer or a TV set that has never been turned off, once electric current with signals runs, generating electromagnetic waves, the electromagnetic waves containing signals forever remain and are preserved.  And that somebody in our brain should see an image, not as mere electric signals, in the electromagnetic waves.

This somebody should be called the soul of the man.

In other word, it is not brain cells that see an image through the eyes but a soul does.

Therefore, it is naturally thought that every animal with the eyes has its own soul.  But a soul of an animal for an animal, while a soul of a man for a man.

While our souls are in the living brains, they see images in electromagnetic waves in the brains.  But when we die, there is no need for our souls to stay in our dead brains.  A soul should leave the brain, however, with the capacity of seeing something.  That is why an out-of-body experience occurs sometimes for people near death or under specific conditions.

And this soul that has left a dead brain, namely a corps, should finally enter the spiritual world, seeing spiritual things and images as it saw material or imagined images in the living brain.   

So, it is natural to think that the disciples and followers of Christ Jesus saw Him directly with their souls rather than with physical eyes, brain cells, cerebral nerve networks and generated electromagnetic waves when Christ Jesus appeared before them, coming from the spiritual world after the crucifixion.

Each of our souls is a viewer of the display of a kind of TV set in each brain.  More importantly, the God is another viewer, so that He knows everything about us.

"I have need to be baptized of thee" - The Control System of the Mind




North of Tokyo

The Control System of the Mind

How can materials and substances in the brain generate the mind?

The brain has only brain cells made of various molecules and atoms that cannot generate human minds.  Then, where are our minds are generated?

The key is the electric currents running among brain cells.  Electric current generates a magnetic filed and an electric field.  The electric fields running through brain cell circuits or networks generate electromagnetic fields.  And the whole brain is a kind of computer that is never been powered off.

All the inputs into the brain are transformed to electric signals that are transferred through brain cell circuits or networks where memories are stored in the form of electromagnetic fields.  By running electric currents with signals again through brain cell circuits or networks, we can recall, reproduce, and remember memories.  Every word and phrase, image, sound, etc. can be recalled and connected with one another, generating basic conditions of our minds.

And then by dynamically linking elements or memories of electric signals, we can constitute a framework of a mind.  Those elements or memories of electric signals are stored among brain cell circuits or networks in the form of electromagnetic fields, and by running electric current, these elements are revived to constitute a meaningful series of elements or memories, thus making it possible for us to think or use the brain.

For example, a signal "love" and another "the God" are connected to produce a meaningful sentence "Love the God" and we think that "We must love the God" in combination with signals and their memories meaning "we must do something."

The concepts of "the God" and "love" are stored and kept in the form of electromagnetic fields in a computer called the brain that is never powered off.  As long as a man lives and his brain is alive, these concepts, there memories and signals never disappear from the brain, since electromagnetic fields in the brain never disappear.

But where is the control system to handles these concepts, memories, or signals stored in electromagnetic fields in the brain?

What makes us think that "We must love the God" by living electronic signals meaning "We must do something," "love," and "the God?"

The key is also electromagnetic fields which are actually light.  And light is the primary form of the energy that makes possible establishment of this material universe.

When this material universe where we live now was generated from part of spiritual universe, some energy was transferred from the spiritual universe.  And, it is thought that light or electromagnetic fields worked to be conduits or bridges between the spiritual universe and the material universe.  So, electromagnetic fields in our brains must have channels to link to the spiritual universe.

And, through this channel, a spirit should come into our brain to work as the control system of functions of our brain.

Every work of our brain must be monitored and checked by a spirit coming from the spiritual world through the channel made of  electromagnetic fields in our brain.  Physical entities or phenomena such as electric current and electromagnetic fields may constitute a framework of a mind, but cannot give meaning, understanding, and judgment.  But a spirit coming from the spiritual universe through electromagnetic fields in a brain can give meaning, understanding, and judgment.  In this way, our brains are controlled by spirits but not by chance.

Indeed, Joh:4:24: God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

"ye receive not our witness" - Patterns More than the Number of Total Atoms in the Universe



Mt. Fuji at Dusk, 100 km from around Tokyo


Patterns More than the Number of Total Atoms in the Universe

The number of brain cells increases after one's birth until one to two months old.  The weight of the brain of  a newborn infant is about 400 g, but that of a grown-up man is 1200 to 1400 g.  However, the number of brain cells does not change, but networks among the cells expand and increase.

As electrons or electric signals flow through these networks, the whole brain functions to generate a mind.  These networks are based on 100 to 200 billion brain cells.  So, our mind is a kind of phenomenon generated by electric currents or electromagnetic waves working through 100 to 200 billion brain cells.  But how can a mind be physically, chemically, or biologically generated from physical phenomena of electric currents or electromagnetic waves inside a brain?

Conversely, can we create a mind by using 100 to 200 billion semiconductor chips such as CPUs, configuring networks through chips, and running electric currents and causing electromagnetic waves following computer programs?

Or if AI software is run in such networks, can AI have a human mind?

When an input signal comes into a brain, it is converted to an electronic signal which will be transferred through networks.

Signal X => Circuit A  => Circuit B  => Circuit C       

However, it might also happen to be transferred in the following way.

Signal X => Circuit C  => Circuit B  => Circuit A

If X uses three circuits among three types of circuits to be transferred, there are 27 (3 x 3 x 3) different ways.
AAA, AAB, AAC, ABA, ABB, ABC, ACA, ACB, ACC, etc.

A brain might choose AAA after trying all the 27 combinations.  And another brain might chose ACC.  And, whenever the brains receive the signal X, they will choose their chosen circuits, AAA or ACC.

So, when information meaning the God comes into a brain, it can be linked with AAA or ACC in this case.  The sequence of AAA might mean "good" due to its particular connections and extension to other circuits and memories based on brain cells, while ACC might mean "bad" in the similar way.

Then, the brain thinks the God is good or the God is bad.

It is similar in the case of coming of the information meaning money.  The brain links the information to the sequence of the networks meaning "good" or "bad."

Information X => Specific sequence of networks generating electric currents and electromagnetic waves linked with a sense of "good" or "bad."  So, a man thinks X to be good or bad.

If a brain cell has only two paths (for input and output), it can be part of networks dynamically constituted by total 200 billion cells.  The number of combinations of cells, circuits, networks, and different sequences of networks is apparently larger than 10 to the 81st power (10^81), a total number of atoms in the observable universe.

So, the networks in one's brain must have the capacity enough to respond uniquely to each information one gets while living.  A man can at least understand every expression of a non-nonsense dictionary or encyclopedia.  This is the basic of one's ability of thinking or specific patterns of electronic work of brain-cell networks.   

But what conditions make the brain-cell networks of a man choose "good" or "bad" to the concept of the God coming into his brain as information in the form of an electronic signal?

It should be a spirit coming from the outside of the material universe into the human brain through work of electromagnetic waves generated in the brain.

If this material universe was made by the God with energy of the spiritual universe, this tentative theory must not be so badly wrong or rather somewhat good.

"so is every one that is born of the Spirit" - Minds and the Creation of the Universe




Mt. Fuji viewed from a station around Tokyo

Minds and the Creation of the Universe

A man is not simply a matter or a substance although his body is made of matters or substances.

A man is a living thing with a mind.  In addition, it is thought that a man has a spirit or a soul.  But what is the spirit or the soul.  How different is it from the mind?  And, what is really the mind?
What Is the Difference between the Soul and the Spirit?
1 Thessalonians 5:23 says, “And the God of peace Himself sanctify you wholly, and may your spirit and soul and body be preserved complete, without blame, at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.” 
This verse clearly tells us that human beings are made up of three parts—the spirit, soul, and body. In the original Greek language, the conjunction “and” in “spirit and soul and body” indicates the three are different from one another. So just as the body is separate and distinct from the soul, the soul is also separate and distinct from the spirit, as illustrated in the diagram below:
https://blog.biblesforamerica.org/difference-between-soul-and-spirit/

Yet, there is the mind between the body and the soul.  What is the mind?

A human body consists of cells, but there are no cells that can generate a mind.  A human body cell consists of elements or atoms that never generate a mind.  However, brain cells exchange electric currents. 

So, the only possible source of a mind is Yet, there is the mind between the body and the soul. What is the mind?

A human body consists of cells, but there are no cells that can generate a mind. A human body cell consists of elements or atoms that never generate a mind. However, brain cells exchange electric currents. So, the only possible source of a mind is electric currents generated among cells in the brain. And, the electric currents cause electromagnetic waves that can transfer signals through space like radio waves for TVs, smartphones, etc.

The state of micro-radio waves in the brain might be the core of a mind. When we feel and think, micro-radio waves should be working in the brain. Or, as micro-radio waves work in the brain, our mind is generated.

However, without guidance to a mind, work of the mind cannot be integrated. Or, through work of the mind, a guiding layer should be formed in the space of working mind. This layer must be called a soul. So, one's identity lies in it. The control layer of a mind governs the work of the mind of a man.

So, the soul is not material but based on work of the mind generated by micro-electromagnetic waves in the brain. The soul cannot be seen, but a man might feel it as something that is at the core of his mind or above his mind. And, human minds and souls can be seen from the spiritual world. Depending on their states, the God must send a spirit to the mind and soul. The spirit must be able to guide the soul and the mind. However, an evil mind forms an evil soul, thus connecting to an evil spirit sent by Satan.

When a man dies, cells in the brain also die. And electric currents and micro-electromagnetic waves cease to exist and work, and thus the mind of the man disappears. But all the information the mind has must be transferred to the soul. The soul abandons the mind disappearing, but it is absorbed by the spirit. And thus, the consciousness of the man should be transferred to the spirit.

However, it is unknown how electromagnetic waves can be linked to the spiritual world.

Electromagnetic waves are a form of light. When this material universe was created, the creating energy generated light and space. Then, some of the light turned to materials. So, it is not so strange that micro-electromagnetic waves (light) in our brains can be linked with spirits coming from the outside of the material universe. Without this linkage with the spiritual world, our minds may work at random, lose integrity, or change self-consciousness every moment.

Anyway, the secret of our minds must be related to the creation of the material universe separating from the spiritual world.  And, the electric currents cause electromagnetic waves that can transfer signals through space like radio waves for TVs, smartphones, etc.

"Stretch forth thine hand" - The Corona Viruses vs. Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans




A Japanese Mari-Time Self Defense Force Port in the Tokyo Bay

The Corona Viruses vs. Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans

Now the corona viruses originated in Wohan, China, in December 2019 are dangerously spreading in and beyond China.

In January, it was still unknown if viruses could be spread from one person to another.  In February, China closed 10 million population city Wohan; a cruiser with 3600 guests and crews at the Yokohama port, Japan, became a focus due to the spread of viruses; and a Korean religious facility became a secondary source of infection and contamination as a relative of the religious leader had traveled to Wuhan, China.  And some regions in Italy and Iran with many Chinese workers and tourists came to suffer the viruses.

The only ways to conquer this epidemic seems to create vaccines or strengthen immunizing power in human bodies.

To strengthen immunizing power of human beings, it is necessary to take out stresses working on human minds.

To reduces stress on human minds, it is desirable to strengthen one's faith in the God.  It is better to read the Bible and ask help from the God.  The stronger the faith in the God is, the stronger immunizing power in human bodies becomes.

From the Middle Ages to the modern era, Europe became the target of epidemics several times.  Through those hard times, Christianity survived, expanded, and solidified its position.

It is symbolic that this corona virus was generated in China where Christianity was virtually suppressed or put under the control of the Chinese Communist Party.  Indeed, when the Pope visited and left Japan in the last November, the corona virus emerged in China in the last December.

In Japan, people have come to realize that viruses are more dangerous than radiation and radioactivity leaked in the 2011 accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.  So, some Japanese now think that it is better to postpone the 2020 summer Olympics games to be held in Tokyo in late July to the autumn.

Anyway, the corona viruses have given a chance for Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, etc. to increase their faith in the God.

”the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath” - Probability Regardless of Past Results





The Sea of Japan

Probability Regardless of Past Results

The probability to get the number one on a cast die is one-sixth or 1/6.

It does not change no matter what results we got in preceding trials.   However, the probability to get the number one in each of three trials made continually is 1/6 X 1/6 X 1/6 = 1/216.  It is less than 0.005 or 0.5%.  Yet, the probability to get the number one on the cast die in the third trial is still 1/6, which is about 0.17 or 17%.

The probability of 0.5% is only meaningful when taking into account all the three trials, but 17% is meaningful when counting only one trial or the third trial alone.  And after the third trial, when counting preceding two trials together,  this 17% is found to be also the factor causing the rare event of three successive number ones, whose probability is 0.5%.

[X] [X] [1]...17%, or once in six trials
[1] [1] [1]...0.5%, or once in 216 trials

Likewise, the probability to get the number one in each of 99 trials with a die made continually is 1/6 X ... X 1/6 = 1/(6^99) = 1 X 10^(-77), which is almost zero in ordinary perception.

However, the probability in the 100th trial to get the number one on the cast die is one-sixth.

So, when people do not know the past 99 trials in each of which the number one was obtained, it does not look like a miracle that the number one has appeared in the 100th trial.

The probability to get the number one successively in all the 100 trials is  (1/6)^100 = 1 X 10^(-78) or 10 to the minus 78th power which is almost zero in ordinary perception.  But, the probability in the 100th trial to get the number one on the cast die is 1/6 or one-sixth regardless of the results of the preceding 99 trials, which does not look like a miracle to anybody.

So, sometimes people do not realize that a miracle is happening, only because they do not know past records.  They will think that the die has ordinarily showed the one on its surface while a miracle is happening as the one has appeared on the surface of the die 100 times continually.

In the situation that the one has appeared on a cast die continually twice, an event with the probability of 0.5% may happen still at the probability 1/6 = 17%.  In the situation that the one has appeared on a cast die continually 99 times, an event with the probability of 10 to the minus 78th power, which is almost zero, may still happen at the probability of 1/6 = 17%.

Regardless of past results, the probability that the one appears on a cast die is always 1/6 = 17%.  But this 17% might sometimes mean a miracle.

If Christ Jesus had had power to interfere with past records, it should have been no wonder that He could always perform a miracle.

If we have great faith, God might interfere with past records for us, and a miracle might occur even by us who can only make an event happen at an ordinary probability.

"from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth" - Christ Jesus at a Trillion Multiplied by a Trillion and then by a Million (1 X 10^30)






Tokyo Station, Japan

Christ Jesus at a Trillion Multiplied by a Trillion and then by a Million (1 X 10^30)

Christ Jesus said about multiplication of faith by 30,  60, and 100:
Mat 13:23 But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
Meanwhile, the Bible stated that there had been 14 generations from Abraham to David, another 14 generations from David to Babylon; and other 14 generations from Babylon to Christ.  
Mat 1:17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.
In the case that faith of Abraham was multiplied by 30, 60, and 100 in his descendants successively and Abraham's faith could be expressed in the quantity of 100, the faiths of Abraham's descendants would be 3,000, 6,000, and 10,000.  And again, this faith, namely 10,000, in the fourth generation from Abraham should be multiplied by  30, 60, and 100  in successive descendants; then the faith in the following generations  would be 300,000, 600,000, and 1,000,000.   This sequence from Abraham to Jesus of Nazareth would be as follows:

Generation No.     Level of Faith
1 100   (Abraham)
2 3000
3 6000
4 10000
5 300000
6 600000
7 1000000
8 30000000
9 60000000
10 100000000
11 3000000000
12 6000000000
13 10000000000
14 300000000000
15 600000000000 6E+11 (David)
16 1000000000000
17 30000000000000
18 60000000000000
19 100000000000000
20 3000000000000000
21 6000000000000000
22 10000000000000000
23 300000000000000000
24 600000000000000000
25 1000000000000000000
26 30000000000000000000
27 60000000000000000000
28 100000000000000000000
29 3000000000000000000000 3E+21 (Babylon)
30 6000000000000000000000
31 10000000000000000000000
32 300000000000000000000000
33 600000000000000000000000
34 1000000000000000000000000
35 30000000000000000000000000
36 60000000000000000000000000
37 100000000000000000000000000
38 3000000000000000000000000000
39 6000000000000000000000000000
40 10000000000000000000000000000
41 300000000000000000000000000000
42 600000000000000000000000000000
43 1000000000000000000000000000000 1E+30 (Christ Jesus) 

The result of this sequence means that, with the setting of ordinary man's faith to 1 and Abraham's faith to 100, David's faith is  600000000000 (6 X 10^11); the faith of Daniel and other prophets around the time of Babylon is 3000000000000000000000 (3 X 10^21); and the faith of Christ Jesus is 1000000000000000000000000000000 (1 X 10^30).

The Judism and the Jewish people had developed their faith over 2000 years from Abraham to Christ Jesus in the above sequence.  And, consequently, their faith increased from 100 (namely, 1 X 10^2, or a hundred) of Abraham to 1000000000000000000000000000000 (namely, 1 X 10^30 or a trillion multiplied by a trillion and then by a million).

Even today, an ordinary man may have faith in the magnitude of 1.  But Abraham must have, in deed, 100 of faith.  It is the level that is enough for a man to become the father or the founder of a tribe (the Jewish people).  Yet, David must have, in deed, 600 billion of faith.  It is the level that is enough for a man to become a great leader of a kingdom whose tradition would live 3,000 years or more.  Further a Jewish leader such as Daniel at the time of the exile to Babylon must have, in deed, 3 X 10^21 (3 trillion multiplied by a billion) of faith, which would be enough to establish a religion (Judaism) that would last 2500 years or more.  But, Christ Jesus must have faith of , in deed, 1 X 10^30 or a trillion multiplied by a trillion and then by a million, which would make a man somebody more than a son of a man.

So, an ordinary man of today with the spiritual level or faith at the level of 1 cannot understand Abraham at the level of 100 (1 X 10^2), David at the level of  600 billion (6 X 10^11), Daniel and other prophets at the level of 3 trillion multiplied by a billion (3 X 10^21), and Christ Jesus at a trillion multiplied by a trillion and then by a million (1 X 10^30).

Furthermore, to be called the Son of God, you must have faith at the level 1 X 10^30 times higher than that of an ordinary man of today.

And it is impossible to understand a man with the faith and ability larger by 10 to the 30th power times ordinary faith and ability.  That is why we need faith to believe and accept Christ Jesus.  Or any arguments or discussions about Christ Jesus must be nonsense.

"his name was called JESUS, which was so named of the angel" - Daytime and Nighttime of the Universe





Birds and Mt. Fuji, West of Tokyo

Daytime and Nighttime of the Universe

One Japanese astronaut who first got into the International Space Station was impressed with his discovery that the universe was dark or black, in deed, while the blue earth was shining.

A century or more ago, scientists wondered why the night sky was dark while it was thought that there were almost infinite starts in the space.

As long as the number of starts are infinite, they thought, the sky or space in night should have been more brighter that it looked actually. Actually the stars we can see in the night sky are almost all in our Milky Way Galaxy where the number of fixed stars, such as our Sun, is 100 to 300 billion, while we can see, with our eyes without telescopes, only one outer galaxy, Andromeda Galaxy, and a few semi-galaxies such as Magellanic Clouds and Large Magellanic Cloud accompanying our Milky Way Galaxy; yet it is supposed that two trillion or more galaxies are in the whole space.  (So, the number of suns or fixed stars in the whole universe is almost 2 x 10^11 multiplied by 2 x 10^12, namely 4 x 10^23 or 10 to the 23rd power.)

As the earth is round, we can see theoretically 50 to 150 billion stars. However we can actually see only 3,000 stars, since our eyes can only get glimpse of stars of the first magnitude (apparent magnitude ) or more to the sixth magnitude. For example, the number of stars of the first magnitude or brighter is only 21.

The brightest fixed star (next to our Sun) in the night sky is Sirius whose apparent magnitude is minus 1.46. The distance of Sirius from the earth is 8.6 light-years.  The nearest fixed star to the earth is Proxima Centauri whose apparent magnitude is about the 11th and whose distance from the earth is 4.2 light-years.

Whereas there are about 200 billion fixed stars in our Milky Way Galaxy, the diameter of the Galaxy is about 100,000 light-years, so that the distance between two solar systems or fixed stars can be measured and expressed effectively only by the unit of light-year, namely the distance light travels in one year (for example, the distance between the earth and the Sun is 8 light-minutes).

So, in this magnitude of the space, even within our Galaxy, the fixed stars are placed or arranged too sporadically, or the number, 200 billion, is too small to make the space brighter than we are actually seeing.  Therefor, we can see only 3,000 stars in night, which are too few to make the whole sky bright like in the daytime.

If 200 billion sulphur matches are stuck and lighted on the moon in night in the period of new moon or when the moon is not irradiated by the Sun, can we see bright light?  For example, it is said that a lit cigarette can be seen five miles away or about eight kilometers away.  But the moon is about 380,000 km or about 50,000 times distant.  As brightness decreases inversely with the square of distance, it needs 50,000 x 50,000 (2.5 billion) cigarettes to be seen as one lit cigarette at distance of five miles away or about eight kilometers.  So, as we don't see it so bright if we see 100 cigarettes at distance of five miles away or about eight kilometers at night, the surface of the moon with 250 billion lit cigarettes cannot look so bright (in the case that this analogy is appropriate).  The Milky Way Galaxy looks so vast for fixed stars.

And it takes about 250 million years for the Sun or our solar system rotates once around the center of the Milky Way Galaxy.   When the earth was at the same position in the Galaxy as it is today, dinosaurs were evolving toward their total extension 65 million years ago.

So, for the ruler of this Milky Way Galaxy, 250 million years is equivalent to one year of the mankind.

And for the God, these 13.8 billion years, the life period of the universe to date, may be just a half day for the mankind.  Or, the "daytime in the whole universe" when the whole space was so bright like in the daytime on the earth of today, even if observed from the International Space Station, if any, might have gone and now it is in the "nighttime" in the whole universe.

So, the universe is dark today even if observed by the Japanese astronaut from ISS.  We must be in the night for the God, the Creator of the Universe. 

But when the next day will start for the God, if He is within the universe?

"And James the son of Zebedee, and John the brother of James" - Love and Hatred above Probability



North of Tokyo

Love and Hatred above Probability

There seems to be two types of men, ultimately: one type becoming a servant of Satan and another becoming a servant of the God.

And, according to the teaching of Christ Jesus, servants of Satan will be thrown down to the hell while servants of the God will be allowed to enter Heaven.

Pascal thought that it was reasonable to become a servant of the God and get allowed to enter Heaven, because happiness in Heaven is infinite while happiness in this world a man can get by becoming a servant of Satan is finite.

And no matter how small the probability (P) that the God and Heaven exist is, P multiplied by infinite (happiness in Heaven) can be as big as possible.  Whereas the possibility (N) that the God and Heaven do not exist cannot be infinite as the history, where Christ Jesus once surely appeared, tells.  And no matter how big the happiness in this world assured by Satan is, the happiness in this world is finite as everybody knows.  Therefore, N multiplied by a finite number (happiness in this world) is finite, which is not comparable with the former case (possibly infinite) with the belief that the God and Heaven exist.

But the point at issue is the assumption that happiness in Heaven is infinite.  Of course, happiness in this world is clearly finite no matter how much wealth a man gets by following Satan.

However, there is another factor regardless of this kind of calculation.  Instinctive hatred against Satan or the God.  Or instinctive love to the God or Satan.

If a man has instinctive hatred against Satan and instinctive love to God, he will believe that happiness in Heaven is infinite, so that no matter how small the probability that the God and heaven exist is, he would bet on the possibility that they exist.

But if a man has instinctive hatred against the God and instinctive love to Satan, he will simply wish that the probability of existence of the God and Heaven is zero.  And thus, no matter how big or infinite the happiness in Heaven is, their product will be zero.  And the probability of happiness in this world is 100%.  All he can do is get happiness as much as possible, since the probability of existence of Satan who assures happiness in this world is also 100%.

Therefore, another point is whether a man can hate Satan and love the God, while even if the God and Heaven do not exist, he cannot get happiness both in this world and Heaven.

On the other hand, if a man hates the God and loves Satan, he can get at least happiness in this world regardless of the possibility of existence of the God and Heaven. 
 
Anyway, as Christ Jesus said, a man cannot love both the God and Satan or hate both the God and Satan.

And one thing sure is that if everybody loves Satan and hates the God and tries to get happiness in this world, which Satan gives, as much as possible, this world will turn to the hell, since everybody will sacrifice others to get happiness in this world as much as possible.

Finally, love and hatred seem to be above calculation of probability.
