"known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem" - Laws in Universe

Mt. Fuji 100 Km Far from Tokyo Area

Laws in Universe

This universe is designed so well.

It is so simple in structure but so multifaceted in its function and appearance.

As students know, almost all the substances, matter and material surrounding human beings consist of three basic entities: neutrons, protons, and electrons.

Clouds, rain drops, leaves, woods, grasses, rocks, sands, and every plant and animal are made of these three elements, though there hundreds of billions of types of those materials and living things on the earth and their aspects of appearance.

But, if anything wrong occurs in laws which control and govern neutrons, protons, and electrons, all the materials and substances and living things on this earth and in the universe could be destroyed, since physical laws ca apply to everything in the same manner.

And, our belief is that it is the God who designed such laws in the beginning.

Act 1:15 And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,)
Act 1:16 Men and brethren, this scripture must needs have been fulfilled, which the Holy Ghost by the mouth of David spake before concerning Judas, which was guide to them that took Jesus.
Act 1:17 For he was numbered with us, and had obtained part of this ministry.
Act 1:18 Now this man purchased a field with the reward of iniquity; and falling headlong, he burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out.
Act 1:19 And it was known unto all the dwellers at Jerusalem; insomuch as that field is called in their proper tongue, Aceldama, that is to say, The field of blood.

"And straightway they forsook their nets" - The Most Authentic Religion

Tokyo toward the South
Tokyo toward North

The Most Authentic Religion

According to Christianity and Buddhism, rich men are to be condemned and thrown into the hell or destined to suffer in another life through transmigration.

It is because you have to do harm to others explicitly or implicitly so as to earn any money.

To get $100, you have to virtually commit a crime corresponding to $100.  To get $1 million, you have to virtually commit a crime worth $1 million.  This crime might not be clearly shown, but in economic and social structure expanding globally, your having a chance to earn $100 or $1 million means your depriving other poor and unlucky people living somewhere on the earth of their chances to get $100 or to be rich.

Therefore, if you live a righteous life, you will become inevitably very poor.

A clergyman who gives all his money to the poor will be one of the poor, so simply.  

So, Christ Jesus and the Buddha never went out to the rich to teach them or save their souls, since those wealthy people are happy and do not want to be unhappy by giving their money to the poor as Christ Jesus and the Buddha told.

So, if you think you don't mind your situation after death but want to be rich and happy in this material world, you are cursed to eternal death or suffering.

But, if you respect and follow Christ Jesus and the Buddha, your soul will be saved.

This is the most authentic religion.

Mar 1:17 And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you to become fishers of men.
Mar 1:18 And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.
Mar 1:19 And when he had gone a little farther thence, he saw James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother, who also were in the ship mending their nets.

"to make ready a people prepared for the Lord" - Boeing 787 Burning?

Tokyo Buildings and Streets, Japan

Boeing 787 Burning?

A Boeing 787 terminated today its domestic flight in Japan due to burning of one of its batteries after having flied for 15 minutes.

Probably, when they designed 787, engineers correctly calculated a necessary amount of electricity to operate this new jet plane which consumes more electricity than any other planes.

So, they must have selected batteries capable of providing enough electricity for various devices loaded on a plane.  But they must have also tried to reduce weight of the plane.  Accordingly, the batteries they adopted must have a large capacity but a light weight.  And this lightweight might mean less protection against heat generation during provision of electric current from the battery.

And in an actual flight, a pattern of use of electricity must be very different from what was observed during a test of those batteries.  In a test, they must have checked that each battery could withstand without becoming too hot while providing a maximum amount of electric current to equipment.

But, too large overshoot of output electric current can happen in a real situation where airplane systems or passengers switch on and off devices in an unexpected manner so that some battery is heated to burn eventually.

Anyway, the keyword is humbleness.  Even the space shuttle spacecraft suffered a big tragedy a few times sacrificing precious human lives.   The Boeing 787, one third of whose main body is built based on Japanese technology, must be more carefully reviewed technically with a focus on an influence of bad cost reduction efforts.

"Jesus came into Galilee" - Bad Employment in Japan

Snow Falling around Tokyo
On January 14

Bad Employment in Japan

One of big social concerns in Japan is a kind of flourishing of businesses that exploit young people.

In Japan almost all the university graduates are employed in April as they graduate from colleges and universities in March.  The job-hunting season for Japanese students is almost virtually specified so as to meet this social custom of starting to work in April.

Decades ago, university graduates were expected to work in companies that hired them on their graduation till their retirement, since university graduates were regarded as elites in society.  But as time went by, the ratio of university graduates in the same generation increased, and work environments greatly changed in Japan along with introduction of IT technologies and due to intensified global competition.  So, labor mobility increased, and career change came to be regraded as minor disadvantage for young people, though it once worked very unfavorably for Japanese workers before.

But the first company young university graduates start to work after leaving schools is important.  They are still expected to work there for at least one year or so before switching companies.  But if the company is run by bad management, young workers cannot stay there even for one year.

Such a bad company uses university graduates as mere copy boys or errand runners without giving them a chance to learn business know-hows and accumulate business skills.  And, within one year, such a company tries to push young workers out of it to hire new graduates in the next spring, thus saving labor costs.  They start to treat young workers harshly and get cruel to them, forcing them to quit voluntarily.  Then the rotten management can recruit new university students in the next job-hunting season without a penalty on them.

Those bad companies are called "black businesses" in Japan today.  Such companies can be found mostly in the service sector, including the computer software business sector and the restaurant business.

Nonetheless, young people in Japan seem to enjoy better employment situations, since the whole unemployment rate in Japan is 4.1% as of November 2012.

University students who were employed by businesses and any social bodies accounted for 93.6% of all the graduates as of April 1, 2012 and who received unofficial job offer from businesses they wanted to be employed accounted for 63.1% as of October 2012.

"one like unto the Son of man" - Lessons from 2004 and 2010

 Mt. Fuji
Observed from Tokyo

Lessons from 2004 and 2010

On December 26, 2004, off Sumatra Island, Indonesia, an M9.1 earthquake and big tsunamis occurred to attack the Indian Ocean coast lines, taking 220,000 lives.  

On January 12, 2010, Haiti, so close to New York and Washington DC in a global scope, suffered a great earthquake in its capital Port-au-Prince immediately taking on 50,000 lives and subsequently claiming 250,000 more lives.

On March 11, 2011, an M9.0 earthquake gave a great shock to Japan, especially, to those living north of Tokyo along the North Pacific coast lines stretching to the north end of Honsyu Island over 800 km (500 miles).    
The 2011 earthquake off the Pacific coast of Tōhoku, often referred to in Japan as Higashi nihon daishin-sai and also known as the 2011 Tohoku earthquake, the Great East Japan Earthquake, and the 3.11 Earthquake, was a magnitude 9.03 (Mw) undersea megathrust earthquake off the coast of Japan that occurred at 14:46 JST (05:46 UTC) on 11 March 2011, with the epicentre approximately 70 kilometres (43 mi) east of the Oshika Peninsula of Tōhoku and the hypocenter at an underwater depth of approximately 32 km (20 mi). It was the most powerful known earthquake ever to have hit Japan, and one of the five most powerful earthquakes in the world since modern record-keeping began in 1900.
This earthquake  caused 16 meter-high tsunamis over hundreds of kilometers along the coast lines some of which attacked and crippled the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant.   Due to this accident, afterwards almost all the nuclear power plants in Japan were halted.  (Now only two nuclear reactors are operated for electricity generation in West Japan, while about 50 plants are still shut down.)

The point at issue is why Japanese utility companies, experts, government officials in charge, and so on could not or would not refer to the Sumatra and Haiti cases to proactively take precaution measures at the Fukushima No.1 Nuclear Plant.   

What they had to do was just enhance the height of breakwaters surrounding Fukushima Daiichi from about 9 meters (27 feet) to 18 meters (54 feet), since the Sumatra earthquake triggered more than 20-meter high tsunamis.  Then, nuclear damages totaling more than $120 billion should have been spared.

Rev 1:12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks;
Rev 1:13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
Rev 1:14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
Rev 1:15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.
Rev 1:16 And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.

"where abode both Peter, and James" - Video of Syria

Mt. Fuji
100 km Far 

Video of Syria

The Japanese public TV broadcaster NHK tonight presented a video footage a Syrian citizen took on streets of the war-plagued country.

It was full of bloody scenes, and it is very rare that NHK broadcasts such scenes as they are.

In a few incidents, Syrian rebels tried to rescue their fellow man being shot and laying on a road.  Even a school boy was ambushed and shot, though he was successfully taken back and carried to a hospital full of other wounded children.

Japanese narration said that fighter planes of the Syrian Government were bombing houses of citizens indiscriminately.

But when I saw some faces of Syrian children in the middle of the tragedy, I sense that they might have some DNAs inherited from ancient Romans as they did not look like pure Arabs.   Indeed Syria became arenas of war from the era of the Roman Empire so many times.  Some Roman soldiers might have settled in Syria to have a family.

It is a big surprise that people are still fighting in Syria like they did 2000 years ago or so, when preserving our sanity and observing the destructive situation.

Are there any prophecies that tell that when they shed blood in a scene of a battle again in Syria 2000 years after the coming of the Son of God, Judaists should take some blame if they live in the south of Syria as an independent nation?
