"To the Poor the Gospel is Preached"

(It's fine...)

Modern History Enabled by Electronics Revolution

It is electronics that has truly introduced revolution of life.

So, look around and you will find anything smart around you is functioning based on electronics.

A computer is a mass of electronics and its software is another form of electronics.

With these electronics, information is transmitted and acquired at a high speed.

For example, without this level of electronics and computers, China should have taken a century more to modernize its industry.

But, Japan has been part of original, global developers of electronics from the beginning as with the U.K. and America.

So, if you really want to understand the core of the modern economy, you have to well understand the nature of this "electronics revolution" since the era of Michael Faraday and James Clerk Maxwell.

*** *** *** ***

The electronics revolution of mankind began in the following manner:
Maxwell had studied and commented on the field of electricity and magnetism as early as 1855/6 when On Faraday's lines of force was read to the Cambridge Philosophical Society. The paper presented a simplified model of Faraday's work, and how the two phenomena were related. He reduced all of the current knowledge into a linked set of differential equations with 20 equations in 20 variables. This work was later published as On Physical Lines of Force in March 1861.[59]

Around 1862, while lecturing at King's College, Maxwell calculated that the speed of propagation of an electromagnetic field is approximately that of the speed of light. He considered this to be more than just a coincidence, and commented "We can scarcely avoid the conclusion that light consists in the transverse undulations of the same medium which is the cause of electric and magnetic phenomena."[47]

Working on the problem further, Maxwell showed that the equations predict the existence of waves of oscillating electric and magnetic fields that travel through empty space at a speed that could be predicted from simple electrical experiments; using the data available at the time, Maxwell obtained a velocity of 310,740,000 m/s. In his 1864 paper A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field, Maxwell wrote, The agreement of the results seems to show that light and magnetism are affections of the same substance, and that light is an electromagnetic disturbance propagated through the field according to electromagnetic laws.

From the equations Maxwell discovered, the electric engineering started to develop, since it was given a concrete and effective underlying theory.

Inventions, such as electric lighting and radio telecommunication equipment, is just a promised step forward.

And then, mankind passed through the era of the Titanic and the First World War.

Over the Second World War, radars and electric calculators started to flourish.

After WWII, Japan started to industrialize and commercialize not only electric equipment but also integrated electronic circuit-driven equipment, such as Sony's transistor radios and TV sets.

All through the Cold War period, the U.S., Japan, Western Europe, and the Soviet Union competed in development of integrated-circuit-based general purpose computers.

Around 1990, it turned to be apparent that only the U.S. and Japan could compete fairly in this technology, inevitably leading to the fall of the USSR.

Japan and America entered the phase of small-sized computer development for personal use in early 1990's.

The U.S. Government took it as a real threat from Japan, thus even politically supporting Microsoft and Intel.

Consequently, Japan lost a chance to overwhelm the PC market in the world.

Then, the Internet age came being supported by advanced telecommunication software in terms of which America was culturally positioned far favorably than Japan. Wall Street has been the largest beneficiary in this context.

The U.S. military has been another largest beneficiary in this context. Accordingly, before September 11, 2001, no one doubted that the U.S. is the sole super power in this world due to its technological superiority and military capability based on the most advanced electronics (and software).

Indeed, the U.S. financial sector has been other largest beneficiary in this context. Accordingly, before September 15, 2008, no one doubted that the U.S. is the sole super power in this world due to its advanced financial skills based on the most advanced electronics (and software).

*** *** *** ***

There are various factors in that Japan has become the largest economy in the world except the U.S. after WWII.

Apart from a population size, the most important factor is that Japanese culture, education, and traditions have been advanced at a level comparable to Western Europe and America in terms of mastering electronics as a whole nation.

After WWII, hundreds of thousands of Japanese students have learnt electronics from Japanese professors and teachers in Japanese universities, as they did before WWII though in a larger number.

After WWII before the era of the PC and the Internet, advanced science and engineering knowledge could not be easily obtained. In Asian countries except in Japan, students had to learn English and go to America to learn any advanced world-class science. But, in Japan, you did not have to be able to speak English at all to learn advanced electronics, since they have been taught in Japan by Japanese teachers.

And, electronics was the most focused on in the Japanese higher education after WWII. After WWII, there had been a kind of electronics boom among Japanese students. It was not by chance at all that Japan excelled in electronics after WWII. The industry, the academic community, and students all tried to develop and expand the Japanese electronics science and engineering.

Those students have been employed by Sony, Panasonic, Hitachi, Toshiba, Fujitsu, NEC, Sharp, and so on to make Japan the second largest economy around 1970's and the world leading hi-tech nation around 1980's.

Looking at Japan's success, Korea and Taiwan and then finally China came to think that they could be another Japan since they all belong to the East Asian Civilization.

As diffusion of the PC and the Internet allowed these countries to get key information easily without sending students to Japan or America, their electronics industry also began to take off.

Conversely, if Japan had failed to be a global leader in electronics after WWII, Japan could not become the second largest economy in the world; Korea and Taiwan could not have become advanced followers of Japan in technology; and China should have been still an agriculture country, put extremely.

Luk 7:18 And the disciples of John shewed him of all these things.

Luk 7:19 And John calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?

Luk 7:20 When the men were come unto him, they said, John Baptist hath sent us unto thee, saying, Art thou he that should come? or look we for another?

Luk 7:21 And in that same hour he cured many of their infirmities and plagues, and of evil spirits; and unto many that were blind he gave sight.

Luk 7:22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.

"By Their Fruits Ye Shall Know Them"

(NHK TV reporting a proposed emergency LDP meeting)
(TV Asahi presenting LDP lawmakers images against/for PM)
(Fuji TV's image of Japan's PM avoiding the dangerous party meeting)
(And So On...)(Japan's Prime Minister Mr. Taro Aso has been amid mounting criticism for the defeat of the LDP in the Tokyo Prefecture election. However, in practical terms, his appointment is secured till August 30's voting...)

Anti-Christ Fruits of the Western Civilization

There are three major trends in this decade as everybody has realized:
- The widening gap between the rich and the poor all over the world
- The economic growth of China with one billion population
- CO2 emission-triggered disaster feared and possible depletion of crude oil more feared

On the first trend, Mr. Barack Obama was elected as U.S. president and the Japan’s long-time ruling party LDP is expected to go into opposition after the coming general election.

On the second trend, Wall Street/City money games have been further spurred.

On the third trend, developing countries are getting awoken with various trials and tribulations, including Islamic terror, civil wars, and even nuclear arms development.

Nothing except religious revolution can correctly and effectively deal with these matters. It is so, since they are inevitable fruits of the modern industry-based civilization originated in Western Europe and the U.S. in these centuries.

This religious revolution must be of a scale that would totally change the Vatican and the commonsense of Judaists as well as the meaning of Islam.

*** *** *** ***

The basic concept is that a man does not live for himself but for the God.

This is the first thing every man must be taught.

If you want to earn big money to have affluent living, it must be not for yourself but for the God.

Hence, the more you earn the more you are requested to offer to the God.

If you earn one dollar per day, you will be requested one dollar per day by the God.
If you earn 100 dollars per day, you will be requested 100 dollars per day by the God.
If you earn 10,000 dollars or more per day, you will be requested 10,000 dollars or more per day by the God.

In the calculation, maybe less-than 100-dollars-per-day default may be forgiven.

But, you will be surely thrown into the hell, if you cannot pay 10,000 or more dollars-per-day debt to the God.

In this way, people's desire for rich life must be regulated, so that no one would sacrifice others for his economic and material success.

This is what the Western Civilization cannot accept due to their anti-Christ character and philosophy.

A few days ago, a 4-feet-width rock rolled down from a higher slope of Mt. Fuji to hit a parked car and a man inside it 700 yards below, thus killing the very unlucky retired man. It is a typical accident that can happen in a probability of 1/100,000.

I felt then something more terrible would happen soon.

Yesterday ten people, mostly older than an age for retirement, encountered a tempest in higher mountains in Hokkaido, the norther big island of Japan, to lose their lives. They were all enjoying walking tours in the mountains. It is a typical accident that can happen in a probability of 1/10,000.

So, we had better take care not to encounter an accident that might involve a hundred victims in a probability of 1/1000. And, we must think about the meaning of blessed retirement.

Anyway, Japanese workers are going to enjoy three consecutive holidays from Saturday to Monday, as July 20 is a national holiday of Japan.

So, be blessed in your holidays!

(Say to Mr. Prime Minister, "You are the commander; you are the chief; you are the champion; and you are my boss!" Il en est ainsi car il a le pouvoir, ma princesse, qui n'est cependant pas tout-puissant.

"Know Them by their Fruits"

(The Diet - Japan's National Parliament in Tokyo)


There are three mythical centers in Japan since ancient days, namely since more than 2000 years ago: Tsukushi (northern Kyusyu), Izumo (a coast region facing the Sea of Japan), and Yamato (Imperial capital prior to Kyoto).

An ancient Chinese official history book, called the Records of Three Kingdoms ("三国志" both in Chinese and Japanese), actually reported situations of the third century from Tsukushi to Yamato through around Izumo.

Even today, the chief Shinto priest of the Great Izumo Shrine claims that their family line can be traced back, in parallel with the Imperial family, for more than 2000 or 2500 years. There are no other such families in Japan today.

Yet, it is still mystery when and how the Japanese race was uniquely consolidated and the Japanese language was specifically established, unlike the case of English.

Anyway, there is a high degree of hidden variety among the Japanese people, since some look like a Western Asian, a South Asian, a Southeast Asian, or a Pacific islander of the light skin, while others have apparently the same DNAs as some of Chinese or Koreans.

Therefore, monolithic unity cannot be often easily attained in the Japanese society with 120 million population.

SECTION I: Hitler's Revolution

Everybody hates Adolf Hitler as an enemy of mankind since the end of WWII. Accordingly, everybody must forgive Adolf Hitler according to the teaching of Jesus Christ.

As you have to forgive Hitler, Judaists as a matter of course have to forgive Christians, Christians have to forgive Muslims, and Muslims have to forgive Judaists.

But, Hitler did not only abuse hatred of German Christians toward Judaists but also abused their material desire.

Hitler achieved a society with stable commodity prices, satisfactory wages for plain workers, well funded pension schemes and health insurance systems, and above all communities without crimes in addition to respect for the nature of the land.

What's more, the Hitler's government looked like giving priority to public good and interests over corporate interests.

The Hitler's Administration adopted the barter system for international trade as the German Government was under international economic sanctions after WWI.

Consequently, the Hitler's Administration made a majority of ordinary Germans materially happy though very rich people living in Germany, including German Judaists, were not treated preferentially.

Or more specifically, by sacrificing six million European Judaists, Hitler's Administration achieved this material revolution without resorting to Marxism or Communism.

If Hitler had not hated Judaists at all, he would have given silent consent to those political and religious gangsters who wanted to eradicate Judaiats, so long as confiscation of wealth from those Judaists was judged to be an essential factor for the success of his material revolution.

Ordinary German people got better off owing to the Hitler's policy to drive out Judaists, so that they must have thought it had been proven who had made them poor before the rise of Hitler and the Nazis. So, why would they try to worry about where those Judaists had gone, since Hitler was a pious Christian?

Yet, for the very reason, the Hitler's revolution was destined to fail, not economically but religiously.

"In Sheep's Clothing"

(Click to enlarge.)

(What's going on in Tokyo...?)

American Revolutionary War (1775-1783)

It is politically appropriate, like the nomination of Judge Ms. Sonia Sotomayor, that President Mr. Barack Obama threw out the first ceremonial pitch in the Major League Baseball All-Star Game, and Ichiro Suzuki, a Japanese No.1 player, politely delivered a first-batter hit soon after the ceremony in St. Louis...


If the British ruling class was so cruel to European Americans trying to be independent from England, how bloody would their animosity to other races and tribes in Africa and Asia turn to be in successive centuries?

In London King George III gave up hope of subduing America by more armies while Britain had a European war to fight. "It was a joke," he said, "to think of keeping Pennsylvania."

There was no hope of recovering New England. But the King was determined "never to acknowledge the independence of the Americans, and to punish their contumacy by the indefinite prolongation of a war which promised to be eternal."[33]

His plan was to keep the 30,000 men garrisoned in New York, Rhode Island, Quebec, and Florida; other forces would attack the French and Spanish in the West Indies. To punish the Americans the King planned to destroy their coasting-trade, bombard their ports; sack and burn towns along the coast (as Benedict Arnold did to New London, Connecticut in 1781), and turn loose the Native Americans to attack civilians in frontier settlements. These operations, the King felt, would inspire the Loyalists; would splinter the Congress; and "would keep the rebels harassed, anxious, and poor, until the day when, by a natural and inevitable process, discontent and disappointment were converted into penitence and remorse" and they would beg to return to his authority.[34]

The plan meant destruction for the Loyalists and loyal Native Americans, an indefinite prolongation of a costly war, and the risk of disaster as the French and Spanish assembled an armada to invade the British Isles. The British planned to re-subjugate the rebellious colonies after dealing with their European allies.

However, though it is difficult to grasp the situation of 230 years ago, the American Independence was truly a by-product of the conflict between England and other European continental powers, such as France, Spain, and the Netherlands, who were vying for overseas colonies with England.

Unlike the case of Portugal and Spain, the Pope had no power to go between the warring camps.

Yet, through this revolutionary war, Americans came to have a new paradigm, not based on the teaching of the Vatican, as manifested in the Unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America.

Without this orientation for the ideal, the American Independence should have simply meant foundation of another greedy and cold-blooded European-race nation.

SECTION II: George Washington and Thomas Paine

George Washington was never hated at all by his contemporaries.

But, how can we trust anybody who has never been hated by his contemporaries?

Jesus Christ said that you would be surely hated by your contemporaries provided you claim justice and righteousness according to the commandments of the God.

George Washington never lost his friends, but Thomas Paine finally lost almost all of his friends, while it was Thomas Paine who claimed justice and righteousness from the era of the American Revolution to the era of Napoleon.

Thomas Paine (January 29, 1737 – June 8, 1809) was an English pamphleteer, revolutionary, radical, inventor, intellectual, and one of the Founding Fathers of the United States. He lived and worked in Britain until age 37, when he emigrated to the British American colonies, in time to participate in the American Revolution. His principal contributions were the powerful, widely-read pamphlet Common Sense (1776), advocating colonial America's independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain, and The American Crisis (1776–1783), a pro-revolutionary pamphlet series.

Later, Paine greatly influenced the French Revolution. He wrote the Rights of Man (1791), a guide to Enlightenment ideas. Despite not speaking French, he was elected to the French National Convention in 1792...

Paine remained in France during the early Napoleonic era, but condemned Napoleon's dictatorship, calling him "the completest charlatan that ever existed". At President Jefferson's invitation, in 1802 he returned to America.

Thomas Paine died at 59 Grove Street, Greenwich Village, New York City on June 8, 1809 at the age of 72. Ostracized for his religious views, only six people attended his funeral.

Yet, the fact that George Washington is respected in the U.S. more than Thomas Paine is suggests something doubtful existent in the American national character.

"The Things Which Come out of Him"

(The End of the "Tsu-yu" Rainy Season around Tokyo for Real Summer...)

The English Civil War

They say that The New York Times and The Washington Post drew attention to the recent movement in the Japanese politics.

Both the U.S. papers concluded that the Liberal Democratic Party would eventually lose power it has held for half a century after the coming general election.

Interestingly their views are not so different from EEE Reporter's, but there is something they cannot understand. It is the personal pride of Prime Minister Mr. Taro Aso.

He can neither spontaneously step down nor accept forced resignation. His only choice is to fight the general election as an honorable leader of the LDP, if he himself and the LDP itself are going to lose power in the Government due to highly expected defeat by the Democratic Party of Japan.

You cannot have the prime minister of Japan make a laughingstock of himself. He must fight, lose, and virtually retire. The recent defeat of his LDP in the Tokyo Metropolitan Assembly Election has prepared, without doubt, Prime Minister Mr. Taro Aso to face like a man whatever outcomes from the coming snap election.

But, this ceremonial political procedure based on Japanese traditional aesthetics is going to take still 50 days until August 30, 2009,

All I wish is that The New York Times and The Washington Post would understand this ceremonial political procedure based on Japanese traditional aesthetics, hopefully, in these 50 days.

Note: The LDP got only 38 seats but the DPJ advanced with 55 seats among 127 seats of the Tokyo Prefecture Assembly through the election held on July 12, 2009. It looks like foretelling an outcome of the future national election.

SECTION I: Cromwell's Revolution

It is apparent that it is not in the 20th or 21st century but in the 17th or 18th century that any great things happened in England.

Cromwell first mustered a troop of cavalry (then referred to as "horse") at Huntingdon in Huntingdonshire, on August 29, 1642, early in the Civil War. After witnessing the defeat of the Parliamentarian horse at the Battle of Edgehill later that year, Cromwell wrote to fellow Parliamentarian leader John Hampden,

"Your troopers are most of them old decayed servingmen and tapsters; and the Royalists troopers are gentlemens' sons, younger sons and persons of quality; do you think that the spirits of such base and mean fellows [as ours] will ever be able to encounter gentlemen that have honour and courage and resolution in them?"

It is evident that Cromwell's answer to his own question lay in religious conviction. Early in 1643, he was given a commission as Colonel and expanded his troop into a full regiment in the newly formed Eastern Association under the command of Lord Grey of Warke and then the Earl of Manchester. By September 11 that year, he referred to them in a letter to his cousin Oliver St. John as a "lovely company". A champion of the "godly", Cromwell became notorious for appointing men of comparatively humble origins but stoutly-held Puritan beliefs as officers, who would then attract men of similar background and leanings to the regiment. He wrote to his commander, the Earl of Manchester, who disagreed with this policy,

"I had rather have a plain russet-coated captain that knows what he fights for and loves what he knows, than that which you call a gentleman and is nothing else. I honour a gentleman that is so indeed."
As Puritans, the Ironsides often attributed their glory in battle to God. Their religious beliefs extended to the field where they adhered to strict ethical codes. In quarters, they did not drink or gamble. They did not partake in the traditional spoils of war and did not rape or pillage defeated opponents (although their religious zeal sometimes led them to be merciless to Catholic enemies).

Indeed, Oliver Cromwell had a kind of samurai spirits, to the degree that he could have assumed the title of the Emperor of England, if he had so wished.

So, Mr. Barack Obama must have been at least somehow puritan to become revolutionary president in any meaning.

Also, a new Japanese political hero must be somehow puritan or non-commercially Buddhistic if supposed to take over for leadership in Japan from the half-a-century leader, the LDP.

SECTION II: Immature British Puritanism

The Reformation influenced badly the English society before the emergence of Oliver Cromwell.

Many monasteries were disbanded, causing a big plight on the poor having been helped in such religious facilities.

The poor came to be regarded as simply idle people or so destined people rather than unhappy people to be given Christian love.

This stupid conversion of philosophy has prevailed to this date in the U.K. The lack of love to the poor and the weak often found in the general British culture seems to be rooted in this era.

And, even works of Shakespeare seems to have exerted a negative effect on this anti-Christ atmosphere.

The Cromwell's revolution stopped at a certain point where he and his followers were requested more faith and love in God to change the whole people but they could not respond to it.

Accordingly, Parliament and royalism came to coexist as the both could not exert more faith and love in God, so as to rely on each other for concealment of their shortcomings and sins.

SECTION III: Lessons to the Obama Administration and Japan

American soldiers to be sent to Iraq and Afghanistan must be pious Christians.

American bureaucrats in the Obama Administration must be pious Christians.

Otherwise, there will be no second term for President Mr. Barack Obama.

Future Japanese Government, whether formed by the LDP or the DPJ, must be more religiously respected by the people; otherwise a regime change in every two to three years will be the norm in Japan, not only such a change of successive prime ministers.

*** *** *** ***

United States Constitution
Bill of Rights
Amendment I
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

This article is significant, since it is regarded as related to prohibition of introduction of state religion, while they were all Christians who decided Independence of America from England. I mean that there must be a provision, first of all, that specifies the relationship between the U.S. and Christianity.

As for Japan, I would rather recommend to adopt this "Amendment" scheme into the Japanese Constitution.

Now, that is all for today.

"Like the Son of Man"

(Plants around Tokyo, nowadays...)

Revolution Starts in Summer

It is truly revolutionary that Mr. Barack Obama, a son of a contemporary African, was elected as U.S. President after having been nominated for President in the U.S. Democratic Party conference in the summer of 2008.

In Japan, finally the LDP-led Cabinet has decided to dissolve the Lower House of the Diet, having power to elect Japan's prime minister, on 21 July and hold the general election on 30 August, 2009, though the political upheaval is expected to further continue till October as there are some ambitious parties, factions, and groups laying their own schemes for formation of a new Government.

Yet, we had better review the French Revolution:
The French Revolution (1789–1799)
The storming of the Bastille, 14 July 1789

Another cause was the fact that Louis XV fought many wars, bringing France to the verge of bankruptcy, and Louis XVI supported the colonists during the American Revolution, exacerbating the precarious financial condition of the government.

The national debt amounted to almost two billion livres. The social burdens caused by war included the huge war debt, made worse by the monarchy's military failures and ineptitude, and the lack of social services for war veterans. The inefficient and antiquated financial system was unable to manage the national debt, something which was both caused and exacerbated by the burden of a grossly inequitable system of taxation. Another cause was the continued conspicuous consumption of the noble class, especially the court of Louis XVI and Marie-Antoinette at Versailles, despite the financial burden on the populace.

Yet you must wonder what happened between the revolutionary power in Paris and the Vatican, since the Pope was the largest stakeholder in the economy of the French kingdom:
The Revolution brought about a massive shifting of powers from the Roman Catholic Church to the state. Under the Ancien Régime, the Church had been the largest landowner in the country. Legislation enacted in 1790 abolished the Church's authority to levy a tax on crops, known as the dîme, cancelled special privileges for the clergy, and confiscated Church property. To no small extent, the Assembly addressed the financial crisis by having the nation take over the property of the Church (while taking on the Church's expenses), through the law of 2 December 1789. In order to rapidly monetize such an enormous amount of property, the government introduced a new paper currency, assignats, backed by the confiscated church lands.

The most significant part of the effect of the French Revolution is that the richest entity of the Vatican was deprived of its source of wealth in France, and thus France could avoid the national bankruptcy by confiscating Pope's lands and issuing a new paper currency backed by the newly nationalized estate in land.

However, "what happened to Judaists?" is the most pious question:
The French Revolution and the Napoleonic period brought to the Jews of France, the Netherlands, Western Germany and Italy the first intimations of modernity. It brought equality before the law, an end to oppressive taxation and enforced residential restrictions, and the opportunity to participate as free men in public and political life. True to the ideals of the Enlightenment, the Revolution granted to the
Jew his rights as a citizen.

Article X of the Rights of Man and the Citizen declared: 'No person shall be molested for his opinions, even such as are religious provided that the manifestation of their opinions does not disturb the public order as established by the law.'

It is true of course that in the reaction that followed the downfall of Napoleon, in certain areas, notably in Italy, the Jew lost his new status. Even in France itself, the early achievements of the Revolution were in part nullified by Napoleon’s policy. Yet for all that, nothing can deprive the French Revolution of its rightful claim to have inaugurated a new and more hopeful era in the life of European Jewry.

The key figures of the French Revolution, either as an enemy or a friend of poor Parisians, were the Vatican and Judaists. Without this notion, you would have simply a too romantic image on the French Revolution.

But, the truth is that the Vatican had neglected poor French people for so long while tying up with successive French kings, while Judaists had been neglected of their human right for so long in their poor and peaceful living in the Christian world.

It was truly so to the extent that most of French poor people came to pay no respect to the Vatican while finding themselves in the same miserable state as that of poor Judaists who eventually looked like their friends in poverty.

Yet, the revolution cost too much.
The Committee of Public Safety came under the control of Maximilien Robespierre, a lawyer, and the Jacobins unleashed the Reign of Terror (1793-1794). According to archival records, at least 16,594 people died under the guillotine or otherwise after accusations of counter-revolutionary activities.[35] A number of historians note that as many as 40,000 accused prisoners may have been summarily executed without trial or died awaiting trial...

And in this trend, another important direction of the incident became clearer, paving the way for young military officer Napoleon eventually:
The Reign of Terror enabled the revolutionary government to avoid military defeat. The Jacobins expanded the size of the army, and Carnot replaced many aristocratic officers with younger soldiers who had demonstrated their ability and patriotism. The Republican army was able to throw back the Austrians, Prussians, British, and Spanish. At the end of 1793, the army began to prevail and revolts were defeated with ease. The Ventôse Decrees (February–March 1794) proposed the confiscation of the goods of exiles and opponents of the Revolution, and their redistribution to the needy...

It is just like young politicians being given many chances and higher appreciation in Japan and America today. However, being young alone never promises true virtue, wisdom, and power. For example, J.F.K. was simply assassinated in 1963 and Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in 1968.

(To be continued...)

Dan 7:13 I saw in the night visions, and, behold, one like the Son of man came with the clouds of heaven, and came to the Ancient of days, and they brought him near before him.

Dan 7:14 And there was given him dominion, and glory, and a kingdom, that all people, nations, and languages, should serve him: his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom that which shall not be destroyed.

Is A Miracle Happening?

A few days ago, I saw four cars with licence plate numbers, such as "11-11," "11-01," "11-10," and "11-20" in a minute or so and almost in an well arranged sequence.

Yesterday I saw two cars with licence plate numbers, such as "TOKYO 505 A 34-56" and "TOKYO 505 E 34-56," in one parking lot.

It is incredible anywhere in Japan since there are almost 60 million passenger cars owned by households.

*** *** *** ***

I have never met any Christian priests or clergymen who could correctly interpret the teaching of Jesus Christ: Those who have some will be given more but those who will not have any more will be deprived of whatever they have.

But, this kind of situation happens every day in a normal citizen life.

If you do not support senior executives of the company you work for, your position and benefits will be surely taken away from you.

This simple analogy has never surfaced in the mind of Christian priests or clergymen.

It is a commonsense that it is dangerous to allow your potential enemy to hold any substantial title and salary in an organization.

If you do not actively partake in business of the company with colleagues and executives, you are supposed to be an embedded enemy, so that you have to be made incompetent for security of the company; accordingly whatever you have in the organization must be taken away from you.

And, in Jesus Christ's teaching, the organization or the company is the Kingdom of God. If you do not have your own share in the Kingdom, you will be regraded as a potential insurgent and thus shall be deprived of whatever valuable things you have been given so far, very naturally.

But, most importantly, I have never met any Christian priests or clergymen who could correctly interpret the teaching of Jesus Christ: Those who have some will be given more but those who will not have any more will be deprived of whatever they have.

There are no Christian priests or clergymen I have ever met who are worth respect, since they have no ability to work in a company with a commonsense; otherwise they must have been able to correctly interpret this teaching of Jesus Christ.

To try to have more means that you are a friend in the Kingdom of God.

Not try to have more means that you are an enemy in the Kingdom of God.

The enemy must be made powerless and incompetent by taking away whatever weapons they have.

This is the teaching of Jesus Christ.

And, I suspect that the Vatican cannot fully and correctly interpret this teaching of their holy, holy Lord.

So, you had better read the EEE Reporter blog, rather than listening to stupid interpretations in any Christian church.

And the EEE Reporter blog suggests to you how to read the Bible everyday and where to refer.

Ichiro Suzuki of the Mariners is going to join the Major League Baseball All-Star game this summer soon as his straight ninth-year appearance in the game.

When he started to play in MLB in 2001, most of critics said that he would be probably hit 0.300 over a season.

But, nobody thought he would continue to play in MLB for nine straight years as a permanent leading hitter candidate or a winner sometimes.

Those critics truly look like Christian priests, preachers, and clergymen who lack critical commonsense and professional intelligence.

Think of that; if there was another St. Peter or St. Paul among contemporary Christian priests, preachers, and clergymen, your life must be far better now.

So, do not call yourself a Christian, a Muslim, or a Judaist at least before the EEE Reporter.

It is so, since you are not like St. Peter or St. Paul at all, if not Abraham or Moses.

In this context, a miracle must happen any time soon, in Rome, Jerusalem, and Mecca, in my humble hope.

(If you call yourself so before the God or Allah, you will be surely judged according to your word. You had better call yourself a sinner...)
