King James Version for Mar 11:11 to Mar 11:28

A Station for One of the Best Soccer Stadiums around Tokyo

King James Version for Mar 11:11 to Mar 11:28

The most difficult part of the Gospel is the following:
"Mar 11:11 And Jesus entered into Jerusalem, and into the temple: and when he had looked round about upon all things, and now the eventide was come, he went out unto Bethany with the twelve.

Mar 11:12 And on the morrow, when they were come from Bethany, he was hungry:

Mar 11:13 And seeing a fig tree afar off having leaves, he came, if haply he might find any thing thereon: and when he came to it, he found nothing but leaves; for the time of figs was not yet.

Mar 11:14 And Jesus answered and said unto it, No man eat fruit of thee hereafter for ever. And his disciples heard it.

Mar 11:15 And they come to Jerusalem: and Jesus went into the temple, and began to cast out them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves;

Mar 11:16 And would not suffer that any man should carry any vessel through the temple.

Mar 11:17 And he taught, saying unto them, Is it not written, My house shall be called of all nations the house of prayer? but ye have made it a den of thieves.

Mar 11:18 And the scribes and chief priests heard it, and sought how they might destroy him: for they feared him, because all the people was astonished at his doctrine.

Mar 11:19 And when even was come, he went out of the city.

Mar 11:20 And in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.

Mar 11:21 And Peter calling to remembrance saith unto him, Master, behold, the fig tree which thou cursedst is withered away.

Mar 11:22 And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have faith in God.

Mar 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

Mar 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.

Mar 11:25 And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

Mar 11:26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses.

Mar 11:27 And they come again to Jerusalem: and as he was walking in the temple, there come to him the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders,

Mar 11:28 And say unto him, By what authority doest thou these things? and who gave thee this authority to do these things?"
* * *

From commonsense of today, Jesus Christ did absurdly curse a fig tree, though, as it had no fruits for Him.

From commonsense of today, Jesus Christ did absurdly rampage in the temple, though, as moneychangers were making business therein.

From commonsense of today, Jesus Christ did absurdly preach in a manner no contemporary priests would rather do, saying a believer could move a mountain to the sea.

From commonsense of today, Jesus Christ was very appropriately being brought into justice by the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders who were in charge of managing the temple for citizens including businessmen of the era.

Accordingly, modern intelligent men and women would begin to lose their faith, consciously or unconsciously, when reading this passage and thinking that Jesus Christ, too, made abusrd things like everybody, without appropriate guidance which they have never received nowadays.
* * *

You may think that Jesus Christ was just having a picnid around Jerusalem, but the truth is that He was at war. Devils began to launch decisive attacks on Jesus Christ, as He ventured to cut into the temple, a stronghold of the devils.

First of all, a spirit, holy or evil, can enter anything in this material universe. It is because the God created the spiritual universe before the material universe, conferring a superseding power to the former against the latter in case. This is the origin of animism, though religions based on animism have been laughed at for so long by faithless modern European and American scholars and researchers.

The devils especially sent an ill spirit to the fig tree so as to hurt a feeling of Jesus Christ who was enjoying the nature blessed by the God in this world. When the ill spirit was destroyed, the fig tree also had to die as it became useless for manifestation of glory of God.

Secondly, money is symbol of devils' temptation. The existence of moneychangers and other sellers and buyers was a proof of dominance of the devils in the temple. Jesus Christ was not breaking desks of the moneychangers and other shops, but He was expelling and chasing ill spirits who had controlled those engaged in business in the temple.

The devils especially sent the ill spirits to the temple so as to provoke Jesus Christ who was expecting to enjoy pious attitudes of Israelites in the temple.

Thirdly, Jesus Christ was of course using a parable. It is however sometimes dangerous, since it gives freedom of interpretation to listeners and disciples. If a man haunted by an ill spirit heard any parable, he would interpret it against a holy intention of Jesus Christ but accept the devils' malicious interpretation. This parable is in this sense the most vulnerable one to the devils waiting for a chance to make His teaching look absurd.

This is truly a challenge for a man to just follow Jesus Christ's holy intention or to take the parable with a worldly mind contaminated by the devils. In this way, His followers were selected as those who could repulse devils' temptation in interpreting parables.

Lastly, the devils appeared at last in shapes of the chief priests, and the scribes, and the elders, namely respectable figures in this world. It is an old trick that devils got into the minds of noblemen, rich men, high-ranking officers, politicians, lawyers, judges, scholars, teachers, and any socially regarded men and women so as to suppress poor and powerless people.

They always appear as if they represent justice of society and a community or a nation. However, they are simply haunted by devils due to their desire for money, social positions, pride, and immorality. Truly, it is sadly a laughing-stock that ill spirited people wearing costly clothes with grand gestures accused Jesus Christ in the middle of His fighting against the devils who had already captured them.
* * *

The most difficult part of the Gospel is from Mar 11:11 to Mar 11:28 as indicated above.

Indeed, the most difficult ages of man may be from 11 to 28.

Man does absurd things and thinks in an absurd way in these ages.

But, if you can get through the ages without fatal prejudice implanted, you are truly blessed, just like a believer who can read through the above passage without prejudice.

(In 1637, Christians revolted against the samurai regime in Japan. This is the last civil war in the samurai era, in which 37,000 Christian farmers and samurais, most of whom were eventually killed, fought desperate battles against the Tokugawa regime that forbade Christianity and planned to close the nation. The civil war is called "Shimabara-no-Ran (" since it happened in the Shimabara Peninsula in Kyusyu, the southern big island of the Japanese Archipelago.

In 1792, a volcano in the Shimabara Peninsula erupted and a major part of the mountain collapsed into the sea causing a great tsunami, killing about 15,000 people (, resulting in the greatest casualties in volcano accidents in Japan.

It also erupted in 1991 taking the lives of 43 scientists and journalists in the avalanche of rocks and sands running down to the sea.

I have my own interpretation on these incidents with the fear of God who apparently authorizes the holy parable of Jesus Christ 2000 years ago around Jerusalem.)

Truly God is great; the God is only god for us!

4,760,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Baseballs for a Man

A Station for a Soccer Stadium since 2002 World Cup Games

4,760,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 Baseballs for a Man

I saw a white car passing by with a license plate number "7777."

I saw a jet plane flying several miles high in the far sky with a long, white vapor trail suddenly fading away while the plane itself was traversing the blue sky horizontally so high as a single, small, and white object without a trail.

And, Mars, red at other times, was shining like platinum Venus tonight.
* * *

A human body is made of 60 trillion (60 x 10**12) cells, which is 10,000 times larger than the whole population of mankind now on the earth.

However, a human body consists of 4760 x 10**24 atoms, which is about 80 trillion times larger the number of cells in our body.

In other words, you collect 4760 x 1000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 baseballs (as atoms), to each of which several golf balls (as electrons) are attached, and build a human body form using these balls as components.

Then, do you think this human body form, though tentatively so large, will work and function like a living human being?

Of course, not. So, you may like to give some physical properties to these balls, such as a positive electric charge to each baseball and a negative charge to each golf ball, which might enable, with luck, biological functions in this artificial human being.

Yet, you cannot expect it to live like you.

Nonetheless, your living body is in a sense made of 4760 x 1000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 baseballs, to each of which several golf balls are attached, and nothing else.

Yes, the minimum and basic components of your body are atoms, each of which consists of a nucleus (made of protons and neutrons) and electrons, and nothing else.
* * *

God is truly great and the God is only god for us!

If you really praise the God for this discovery, the God may be pleased.

But, if you continue to satisfy your own atoms with money and evil things, the God will be waiting for you somewhere with anger, in my view.
* * *

A super robot may be able to see only atoms in a human being.

But, Jesus Christ must be able to see a mind, a heart, a soul, or a spirit in a human being.

Therefore, it is no wonder that Jesus Christ made a blind person regain his eyesight which had been clouded so badly due to spiritual pollution of the world or simply lost due to physical malfunction, as the power of God worked inside Him.
* * *

I saw a white car passing by with a license plate number "7777."

I saw a jet plane flying several miles high in the far sky with a long, white vapor trail suddenly fading away while the plane itself was traversing the blue sky horizontally so high as a single, small, and white object without a trail.

And, Mars, red at other times, was shining like platinum Venus.

Then, I am now writing this EEE-Report to praise the Lord tonight.

Tragedies of Egyptians, Israelites, Muslims, Americans, and Sudanese

The Pointer Sisters? (what a surprise)

Tragedies of Egyptians, Israelites, Muslims, Americans, and Sudanese

One big enigma is what Jesus Christ was thinking about the Roman Empire.

Also, I wonder what Jesus Christ was thinking about the glory of ancient Egypt.

And though it seems to have no relevance, I wonder if Islamic terrorists targeting the U.S. have made a big mistake; they have mistaken their enemy.
* * *

Today, everybody knows there is a big problem in Sudan with newly confirmed big oil reserves and a civil war.

Sudan was one of the poorest countries in the world, being located in the south of Egypt.

If the Roman Empire had not completely destroyed the national power of Egypt through colonization, Egypt might have had potential to annex Sudan very long time ago.

If Egypt could have coped with well Alexander the Great and Caesar, namely Macedonia and the Roman Empire, it might have become the world empire occupying Africa, the Mediterranean, and the Middle East.

After the glorious periods symbolized by Pyramids and reported in the Bible, Egypt remarkably lost its power and hegemony. Even having been leveraged by Islam, Egypt could not cope with Europe.

Why could not Egypt become another Japan?
* * *

The Roman Empire completely destroyed the potential of Egypt to become the world power in future.

It could have happened to Israelites 2000 years ago.

Actually, it is the Roman Empire that deprived Israelites of ability to establish their own country.

What is worse, the Roman Empire destroyed pride of Egyptian people.

The Roman Empire could have completely destroyed pride of Israelites 2000 years ago, too

Actually, it is the Roman Empire that deprived Israelites of ability to think that they deserved their own independent country for 1900 years.

The power of the Roman Empire in the ancient world was more horrible and decisive than you imagine today. We can see their influence even in today's world situation, specifically, on Egyptians and Israelites.

Put frankly, Egyptian lost pride and Israelites lost some ability.
* * *

To my astonishment, Egyptians thought it would be their great honor if Princess Diana married an Egyptian, a nephew of arms dealers who mostly worked for profits of Christians.

Something very wrong is there.

Since their ancestors praised and followed white-skinned Cleopatra as their queen, they seem to have lost something important such as pride of a tribe.

The fact that they wanted Princess Diana as another Cleopatra was a big astonishment for me.

(It is also astonishing to see certain Israelite Americans cannot see the difference in the ancient Chinese Civilization/the Japanese Civilization and the South American indigenous civilization. And thus they cannot effectively discuss the world economy. Japan has been the right successor of the ancient Chinese Civilization that once gave so much to Europeans for their cultural development.

Israelites seem to have lost some aspects of their intelligence, as they have failed in understanding and praising the Japanese Civilization and its great success.)
* * *

Unless Islam had been conferred to Egyptians, they might have loved to be always governed by a white-skinned queen.

Yet, there is a more significant issue. Egyptians seem to have become blind to the danger of the British Empire.

As the Roman Empire destroyed something important in the mind and heart of the Egyptian Civilization, the British Empire seems to have also destroyed something important in the mind and heart of the Islamic Civilization.

Contemporary Egyptians, indeed, wanted Princess Diana to marry an Egyptian, a nephew of arms dealers who mostly worked for profits of Christians, as the expected marriage would improve their standing.

Egyptians seem to be still brain-washed by Alexander the Great, Cleopatra, the Roman Empire, and the British Empire.

As Egypt is a center of Islamic study, it must also influence other Muslims, including radical activists and even terrorists.

Compared with Alexander the Great, Cleopatra, the Roman Empire, and the British Empire, the U.S. does not look so dangerous to Egyptians and Muslims.

As the present U.K. cannot be regarded as the same as the past British Empire, Muslims must not regard the U.K. as their enemy; but regarding the U.S. as an enemy with the mind brain-washed by the past British Empire is a tragedy and a big mistake.
* * *

One big enigma is what Jesus Christ was thinking about the Roman Empire.

Also, I wonder what Jesus Christ was thinking about the glory of ancient Egypt.

Indeed, 2000 years ago, Israelites were about to become another Egyptians.

Jesus Christ's first priority must have been to positively influence Israelites so that they could survive in the subsequent 2000 years.

In fact, by adopting a method of rejecting or secretly competing with Christianity, Israelites have survived, though they regard themselves as inherent Europeans which they are not, since they are a kind of Arabs historically.
* * *

Yes, as even today we cannot find any personality greater than Caesar in Europe, we can measure the merit and horrible influence of the Roman Empire.

The glory of ancient Egypt symbolized by Pyramids was completely destroyed by the Romans. (Further, even the introduction of Islam to Egypt could not restore its glory and pride against, say, the British Empire.)

Jesus Christ's biggest concern must be how to save Israelites and help them keep a specific pride as a holy race.

But, the Gospels do not tell His words on Egypt and the Roman Empire.

Does the silence on a large and clear issue mean an extremely grave concern?
* * *

If you are an Egyptian, a British, or an Israelite, you must listen to this kind of opinions at least once in your life.

If you are an American, you might somehow find a reason why some Muslims hate America that has not long history in relation with the Islamic world; indeed, they seem to be mistaking their enemy in their brain-washed mind.

The fact that Princess Diana was wanted by Egyptians tells everything.

Now, you also may find existence value of the U.S. not as a simple extension of the Roman Empire and the past British Empire.

America should not be an enemy of Islam, though Israelite Americans sometimes seem to like to make an enemy out of Japan, to my astonishment.

Miracle on Water and in Tempest

Godspeed the Tokyo Bay

Miracle on Water and in Tempest

Another miracle to be piously interpreted is the one that Jesus Christ calmed down the tempest and walked on the surface of a lake.

It is apparent that the tempest was also raging in the minds of His disciples even after the natural tempest got weakened.

In a frenzy and fear of losing life, His disciples were losing their ordinary sight and normal observation in a boat still rocking in shallow waters even after the main part of tempest had gone.

The boat was still violently swayed due to floundering about by His disciples trying hard to row the boat, while causing big splashes and spray, but still being haunted by the frenzy and fear of losing their lives.

The boat was then actually in the shallow waters, and rain and winds almost stopped.

So, Jesus Christ walked on the water to their boat and told them to stop the commotion in their minds.

His disciples were brought to their senses; the boat sailed forward without obstacles, namely their blind rowing, off the shallow; and they looked back to their Lord somehow behind standing in the water.

Indeed, they later reported that their Lord had stopped the tempest and walked on the water.
* * *

But, truth is that Jesus Christ was able to bring about and stop a natural tempest and walk on water, if the God so wishes.

If He does so, there must be however a more significant reason than the one for which the God created the universe and defined the natural laws.

If there had been a significant reason that is comparable with the Creation of the universe, the God would have allowed Jesus Christ to supersede the conventional natural laws, in my opinion.

His disciples getting frenzy and haunted by fear alone could not be such a grave reason, in my view.

Therefore, Jesus Christ waited for the natural tempest getting calmed and then walked on the shallow water, though He could bring about and stop a natural tempest and walk on deep water as a miracle for man.
* * *

My dream is of course someday that the Lord will march in that street in Chicago, New Orleans, Los Angeles, or New York.

But, He must be waiting for a significant reason to do so that is comparable with the Creation, in order to supersede the conventional natural law that no dead man comes back alive, in my opinion.

Anyway, my dream is of course someday that the Lord will march in that street in Chicago, New Orleans, Los Angeles, or New York.

And, everybody, shining bright equally due to His glory, would confess that He is his or her Lord, no matter if he or she has a European type or an African type of skins which simply reflect His glory to shine without a trace of their color.
* * *

In an ancient age, when some heads of clans or kings in Japan were nominally subject to a Chinese Emperor about 1700 years ago or so, they had a special and spiritual practice in their voyage to China or specifically a Chinese territory in the Korean Peninsula.

On board, there was a man specifically appointed to be in charge of appeasing the anger of gods on the ocean in case something goes wrong. He never cleaned his body, cut his hair, changed his clothes, ate meats,got close to a woman, but just continued quietly to sit on a deck.

If the ship safely arrived at a destination port, he was highly praised and rewarded. But, if the voyage failed or somebody got sick on voyage, there was no guarantee of his life.
* * *

Don't you sometimes feel like yourself being specifically appointed to any sacred duty, though in terms of spiritual attitudes?

At least, we had better check if we are on board a ship where somebody is so appointed and who he or she is.

(Once in a desolate bunkhouse of a dreary industrial area, somewhere in Siberia, a Russian woman played the role, working as a kitchen worker without enjoying a luxury all through her life under the communist regime of the superpower with thousands of nuclear ballistic missiles.)

If such an appointed man or woman fails or flees by guile, we might be soon entering a tempest.

In a very large scale, I sometimes think Japan must be a nation so appointed in the world; however can the earth be a planet so appointed in the universe?

Now, who is such an appointed person in your company or workplace?

Jesus Christ and Moral Israelites

Arakawa River around Tokyo

Jesus Christ and Moral Israelites

Jesus Christ was almost killed by angry citizens 2000 years ago. He squatted down between angry Israelites and a woman to be stoned to death.

Angry people, each holding a stone, believed that they were doing a right thing to stone the woman to death.

Angry people, each holding a stone, believed that they were following a law to stone the woman to death.

Angry people, each holding a stone, believed that they were executing holy justice to stone the woman to death.

But, here came Jesus Christ, telling them not to kill her because they were also sinful. Then Jesus Christ squatted down between angry Israelites and the woman to be stoned to death.

Now, the angry and confused people had two targets: Jesus Christ and the woman.

Jesus Christ began to write something on the ground, maybe some names such as Cleoptara, in my personal theory. Anyway, when they saw what He was writing, they each dropped stones without power on the ground and started to leave the place.

When they were all gone, the woman knew she was saved by Jesus Christ.

As she knew that He risked His life just to save her, she repented and believed Him.
(I suppose there were no disciples of His in the scene. Only the woman could later report the incident in details including the conversation between Jesus Christ and her, which may suggest something very important.)
* * *

No one regarded this incident as a miracle.

In human history, there must have been tens of thousands of similar cases, but this must be the only case that a condemned woman has ever been saved by a single courageous stranger without support from fellows, arms, worldly power, money, business offer, and any tricks, even without inquiring and defending her. Or have you any such a report?

You may think this sort of things may happen often in the world; but I think this is the only case in the human history.
* * *

There is a thing which looks very simple and easy, if expressed or told, but is extremely rare or valuable, or even belongs to a sphere of miracles.

For example, if you are not influenced by immoral rich people in the U.S., it is a miracle.
* * *

When a master is immoral, if a servant becomes immoral, the servant will be forever a servant under the immoral master.

When a master is immoral, if a servant becomes moral, the servant will be free from the immoral master.

In a very special case, a political revolution can happen in this context.

AlQaeda does not need to use a suicide bomber; they just have to send handful moral men and women to the U.S. as a core of revolution in the U.S.
* * *

Was the woman Jesus Christ saved rich and immoral? Or poor and moral?

What do you think, though I do not mind if you are rich and moral?

North Korea and the 2008 Summer Olympic Games

Very Common Landscape around Tokyo

North Korea and the 2008 Summer Olympic Games

Ms. Yoshiko Sakurai ( is one of the most prominent female journalists in Japan. She once hosted a TV news program for a very long time.

Last night, a new TV program she jointly hosts reported on North Korea, specifically, not on missiles or nuclear bombs, but fake bills. It is well known that the North Korea Government is involved in illegally printing US 100 dollar bills, which are often called "Super-K" and presently "Super-Z."

It is said that the US agencies have so far confiscated fake bills worth 50 million dollar (face value) North Korea illegally printed out and circulated since 1989.

If they were just 10% of all the counterfeit bills North Korea had illegally printed as a national crime, there might be still 450 million dollars worth notes illegally circulated in the world.

According to the US Government, among 800 billion dollars worth notes being globally circulated, one in 10,000 bills is fake, which might however not be a very correct estimation.
* * *

North Korea is believed to have abducted and still keep more than 100 Japanese for intelligence purposes. Both the abduction and the fake bill projects are believed to have been conducted by the direct authority of Mr. Kim Jong-Il, the ruler of North Korea.

However, before these national crimes of North Korea were made open late 1990's, many Japanese politicians had visited North Korea on a friendly base. Those politicians have been called doves or peace-loving politicians. They also usually take a pro-China stance.

In other words, hawks are those who have been consistently harsh to North Korea and China, both under one-party dictatorship. Though she is not a politician, Ms. Yoshiko Sakurai is one of hawks.

What is particular about her is that she is the almost only non-nonsense female political commentator, author, and public figure with rich experiences in the news industry in Japan. And, she is hawkish and patriotic, very elegantly.
* * *

China has been supporting North Korea despite their ongoing abduction and fake-bill projects in addition to their nuclear tipped missile development project.

China is going to host the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing.

But, I have to say, at least, that there are many Japanese patriots, such as Ms. Yoshiko Sakurai, who cannot enjoy the 2008 Summer Olympic Games in Beijing Mr. Kim Jong-Il will surely enjoy.

Amazing Grace

Amazing Grace in Nagatoro Gulch

(A Little Thought of Today:

Judaism regards Jesus Christ as one of Israelites if He ever existed 2000 years ago.

Christians believe that Jesus Christ is God.

Muslims regard Jesus Christ as one of holy messengers who had appeared before the last and greatest holy messenger who established Islam 1300 years ago.

Now, what do you like to be: a Judaist, a Christian, or a Muslim?

Most of super rich people in the U.S. are Christians, for your reference.

Aside from this practical question, the above religious state on the earth tells that you have to concentrate on God Himself, but not religion, and even not on Jesus Christ if the God so wishes.

Anyway, mankind has to more develop the concept of God; otherwise, this kind of arguments may lead to a kind of tautology in terms of meaning if not form.

Without knowing God and His omnipotence, you may say you are an Israelite who in fact does not understand God whom a Christian, who you are in other fate, also does not understand like a Muslim who you are in other fate and does not understand Allah.)
