"Ashamed of Me and of My Words"

I suppose it is time to change the black color of the Olympics symbol to white.

Here, white is for Africa, Red is for Americas, Blue is for Asia, Yellow for Australia, and Green for Europe as black should be changed to white.

(Oh, mein Herz war wirklich in einem Hurrikan, mein Lieber! )

Luk 9:26 For whosoever shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him shall the Son of man be ashamed, when he shall come in his own glory, and in his Father's, and of the holy angels.

Luk 9:27 But I tell you of a truth, there be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the kingdom of God.

Dan 9:24 Seventy weeks are determined upon thy people and upon thy holy city, to finish the transgression, and to make an end of sins, and to make reconciliation for iniquity, and to bring in everlasting righteousness, and to seal up the vision and prophecy, and to anoint the most Holy.

Dan 9:25 Know therefore and understand, that from the going forth of the commandment to restore and to build Jerusalem unto the Messiah the Prince shall be seven weeks, and threescore and two weeks: the street shall be built again, and the wall, even in troublous times.

"A Servant of Servants "

(A Tokyo Bay Story..."against insurgents there?")

When you read the Bible, you would figure that Jesus Christ and His followers did not keep a dog or a cat while travelling and preaching 2000 years ago.

Jesus Christ just used a donkey as a means to enter Jerusalem. He does not seem to have communicated with any animals or living things except a poor fig tree.

Indeed, a man is more important than a dog or a cat, or any other living things on the earth.

Yet, a man is also a living thing but not a machine. Some billion years ago, there were no distinctions between direct ancestors of mankind and those of, say, a bug.

And, finally, in Heaven, angels might be arguing that living people have their own souls. There were no distinction between the souls of those who have eventually entered Heaven and the souls of those who have eventually fallen to the hell, when they were born each as a member of mankind.

A dog or a cat is closer to mankind than a bug is. But, a poor man looks like being closer to an angel than a rich man is.

SECTION I: Afghanistan

There is still an enigma as to why Mr. Osama bin Laden started to hate America.

It is so, since it is clear that the Taliban had not hated America at least before September 11, 2001.

There is still an enigma as to why Saudi Arabia has not declared jihad against Mr. Osama bin Laden and AlQaeda and all the Muslims in the world have not followed suit.

It is so, since it is clear that all the Christians and other non-Islamic people in the world have come to lose respect, to whatever degree, for Muslims at large.

Or do you know any Christian who says that he or she has come to respect Muslims at large all the more because of Mr. Osama bin Laden and AlQaeda?

Though no Christians have ever clearly said, it is apparent that Mr. Osama bin Laden and AlQaeda have served as a test of the fate of Islam itself in the history.

Nonetheless, Afghanistan is serving as a test of the fate of America itself in the history, in my humble view.

SECTION II: Three Sons of Noah

It is one of very controversial stories in the Old Testament that Noah got angry with one of his sons.

Some argue that the mother of Ham is a key; others say that Ham took the garment of Noah so as to act as a priest in a temple.

Or it might explain why later the Israelite conquest of Canaan happened.

In the Hebrew Bible, the "Land of Canaan" extends from Lebanon southward across Gaza to the "Brook of Egypt" and eastward to the Jordan River Valley, thus including modern Israel and the Palestinian Territories.

Though Jesus Christ never referred to this episode of Noah and his sons, any mysterious description in the Bible must be reviewed to find any clues to solution of the Palestine conflict.

Anyway, when you have three men, one of them would surely do something you cannot foresee beforehand, even if you were a God-blessed Noah.

Muslims who want to solve the Palestine conflict of today had better study this legend.

Gen 9:22 And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without.

Gen 9:23 And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness.

Gen 9:24 And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him.

Gen 9:25 And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.

Gen 9:26 And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

Gen 9:27 God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

Gen 9:28 And Noah lived after the flood three hundred and fifty years.

"A Corruptible Crown"

(Tokyo Japan)

Now, it seems to be a season for a real change even in TV stations.

One year ago, no one cared about the wife of Mr. Yukio Hatoyama, the new Prime Minister of Japan.

Seven years ago, no one cared about the wife of Mr. Barack Obama, the incumbent U.S. President.

Thirty years ago, no one cared about future-crown-princess Diana, a daughter of an English noble family, destined to be killed in a Paris car accident in 1997 as ex-wife of the Prince of Wales.

Yet, the story of Secretary Mrs. Hillary Clinton seems to be all the more going on, though she was the wife of the Governor of Arkansas in 1978, who is of course still her husband, though as ex-U.S. President.


Still the Pearl Harbor attacks, Hawaii, by several aircraft carriers of the Empire of Japan in 1941 is the largest event that opened a new era for America in these hundred years.

It is so, since so many American citizens were critically influenced by this incident which however implied a serious lack of international knowledge among Americans.

Then, the JFK assassination in 1963 led to a new era that ended with the withdrawal of U.S. troops from Vietnam and the termination of the Apollo moon project.

The post-Vietnam War era continued until America's victory in the Gulf War in 1991. America pursued a large scale of computer/Internet application through 1990's to secure its dominance in economy and technology in the world.

In early 2001, America was enjoying its status as the sole superpower in the world, having defeated the Soviet Union in the Cold War and Japan in the money war.

Then the 9/11 terror occurred and changed the American social and political climate.

And in 2008, the Lehman Shock and the subsequent great financial crisis forced 20% of American workers to live in a state of unemployment, virtual-unemployment, or highly downgraded employment.

Accordingly, in 2009, America has the first African American president, though as many poor European Americans came to realize that they are equal to poor African Americans, which is apparently a sign of a new era.

In 2009, Japan has the first full-scale regime change between the two major parties, the DPJ and the LDP, through general election since 1950's.

So, it is no wonder that something new or horrible can happen to all the people concerned.

Yet, the word of God never changes and passes away.

1Co 9:25 And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.

"The Jews Took Counsel to Kill Him"

(Tokyo 2009)

There are three types of lawmakers in Japan: an expert in election only, an expert in political games and business, and an expert in policies and administration.

If you are a top class of the first type of lawmakers, you cannot necessarily be a top class of the second type of lawmakers.

If you are a top class of the second type of lawmakers, you cannot necessarily be a top class of the third type of lawmakers.

President Mr. Barack Obama may cover all the domains well enough leveraging IT gears and a TV show, but Prime Minister Mr. Yukio Hatoyama of Japan looks like determined to go in for the third type of statesmen, no matter simply because he is a grandson of a former prime minister of Japan who signed the 1956 Japan-Soviet Joint Declaration at Moscow.

SECTION I: Christianity and China and Chinese

Some essence of the American democratic Christianity was planted in Japan in the form of the Japanese Constitution after WWII.

However, anti-European-Christianity-society Marxism was also welcomed by Chinese leaders after WWII as they shared a sense of hate for democracy and freedom.

Christianity in China

Since loosening of restrictions on religion after the 1970s, Christianity has grown significantly within the People's Republic. It is still, however, tightly controlled by government authorities. The Three-Self Patriotic Movement and China Christian Council (Protestant) and the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association, which has disavowed the Pope and is considered schismatic by other Roman Catholics, have affiliations with government and must follow the regulations imposed upon them.

The official figure in 2002, which consists of members from official Protestant churches, is about 15 million, while some estimates on members of Chinese house churches vary from 50 million to 100 million.

In 2006 it was stated that there were 4 million members of the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association and an estimated 12 million members of the underground Roman Catholic Church in China as of 2006.[35] Kiven Choy stated, in a Chinese weekly newspaper in Hong Kong, that the correct number of Protestants in China should be at around 20 million[citation needed], while Time Magazine reported 65 million in 2006.

Indeed, in these 4000 years since the beginning of the ancient Chinese Civilization, no democracy and freedom of citizens has been exercised in China to date.

One of the key reasons can be found in Chinese religion.

And, to comprehend religion in a nation, you have to see what religions emperors or kings of the past observed in the nation.

Put simply, in the first and second dynasties, namely Qin and Han, Chinese emperors were regarded as a god.

But, as the time went by and Confucianism, created far before Qin, was further developed to adjust itself to the era of empire since Qin, Chinese emperors became more a man than a god.

While Japanese emperors acted more as a holy descendant of ancient gods, Chinese emperors left the tradition to be more secular.


Hence, Japan is more akin to ancient China than China itself is.

SECTION II: Taiping Rebellion

Yet it is remarkable to see that Christianity was once significantly involved in the Chinese history.

The Taiping Rebellion was a large-scale revolt in China from 1850 to 1864, during the Qing Dynasty, by an army led by heterodox Christian convert Hong Xiuquan. He established the Taiping Heavenly Kingdom (Chinese: 太平天國 pinyin: Tàipíng Tiān Guó), namely Heavenly Kingdom of Great Peace with its capital at Nanjing and gained control of significant parts of southern China, at its height ruling over about 30 million people.

This revolt was suppressed and over as Western Powers joined the Qing dynasty in battles.

Finally, when some 200,000 insurgents and their families were killed in Nanjing by Qing troops, this large-scale attempt of a Chinese revolution based on certain interpretations of the Christian Bible was over.

Act 9:22 But Saul increased the more in strength, and confounded the Jews which dwelt at Damascus, proving that this is very Christ.

Act 9:23 And after that many days were fulfilled, the Jews took counsel to kill him:

Act 9:24 But their laying await was known of Saul. And they watched the gates day and night to kill him.

Act 9:25 Then the disciples took him by night, and let him down by the wall in a basket.

"Thy Faith Hath Made Thee Whole"

(Government Office Area, Tokyo; Can be enlarged.)

From this Monday to Wednesday inclusively, Japanese business is off due to three consecutive public holidays.

Prime Minister Mr. Yukio Hatoyama is going to fly to New York and Pittsburgh to address the world in the U.N. assembly, have a talk with President Mr. Barack Obama, and discuss the global economy at G20 Summit.

Yet, Foreign Minister Mr. Katsuya Okaga, on a TV interview, made it clear that troops of Japan's Ground Self-Defense Force will not be sent to Afghanistan even after Japan terminates, early next year, its support for America on the Indian Ocean with free provision of fuels for allied naval ships. F.M. Mr. OKada is also flying to the U.S. to meet Secretary Mrs. Hillary Clinton, etc.

Anyway, the approval rating for the Hatoyama-Okada line is very high among Japanese voters as was proved in the 8/30/2009 election.

(The key issue is whether or how P.M. Mr. Hatoyama and F.M. Mr. Okada understand the need of U.S. military presence in East Asia in the current scale with so many bases in Japan, especially in Okinawa, while China is willing to be a militarily dominant power and concurrently secure its position as a kind of friendly nation to the U.S.)

SECTION I: Religion of Native Americans and Hispanics

It is somehow well known in Japan that the Hopi, one of native American tribes, have a unique prophecy:
Hopi Elders pass warnings and prophecies from generation to generation
through oral traditions and reference to ancient rock pictographs and tablets.

Hopi Blue Star or Blue Kachina Prophecy

An ancient Hopi Indian prophecy states, "When the Blue Star Kachina makes its appearance in the heavens, the Fifth World will emerge". This will be the Day of Purification. The Hopi name for the star Sirius is Blue Star Kachina. It will come when the Saquasohuh (Blue Star) Kachina dances in the plaza and removes his mask.

The Hopi settled in the area now known as Four Corners, where the state lines of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet. They lived in humble simplicity and the land produced abundant crops. This area is the "heart" of Turtle Island [the U.S.] and of Mother Earth, and it is the microcosmic image of the macrocosm of the entire planet. Each Hopi clan perpetuates a unique ceremony, and the ceremonies together maintain the balance of natural forces of sunlight, rain and winds, and reaffirm the Hopi respect for all life and trust in the Great Spirit.

The Hopi were told that after a time White Men would come and take their land and try to lead the Hopi into evil ways. But in spite of all the pressures against them, the Hopi were told they must hold to their ancient religion and their land, though always without violence. If they succeeded, they were promised that their people and their land would be a center from which the True Spirit would be reawakened.

It is said that after many years the elder brother might change the color of his skin, but his hair will remain black. He will have the ability to write, and he will be the only person able to read the Tiponi. When he returns to find his younger brother, the Tiponi will be placed side by side to show all the world that they are true brothers. Then great judgment will take place, for the elder will help the younger brother to obtain real justice for all Indian brothers who have been cruelly mistreated by the white man since he came to Turtle Island.


It is said that there were four million native North Americans when Europeans started to invade North America.

Today, there are 2,786,652 native Americans in the U.S., though as of 2003, most of whom do not look like being Christians.

On the other hand, it is estimated that there are about 45,270,000 Hispanic Americans plus about 10 million illegal Hispanics, most of whom look like being followers of the Vatican if nominal.

So, do you believe that European Christianity has been truly a universal religion?

Or, is that European Christianity more universal than money-based economy?

If it is not so as proven by native North Americans, anything terrible could happen on the American soil as prophesied in the Bible, though it might not imply the Blue Star Kachina.

The only chance for survival may be found when all the native Americans in the U.S. are fully persuaded to follow the teaching of Jesus Christ.

So, you go and preach among them. And why not?

SECTION II: Christianity through America to Japan or China

Mat 9:20 And, behold, a woman, which was diseased with an issue of blood twelve years, came behind him, and touched the hem of his garment:

Mat 9:21 For she said within herself, If I may but touch his garment, I shall be whole.

Mat 9:22 But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.
