"let him hear what the Spirit saith" - Why Must God Interfere with this World?


Why Must God Interfere with this World?

Without human beings on the earth, there must be no evil deeds and acts on the earth.

So, more than three million years ago when no human species was yet established, this world on the earth had no phenomena caused by evil spirits.  The world must have been wonderful even when dinosaurs were dominant.

But today, we can see how the nature of this planet has been contaminated by industry driven by evil capitalism.  We can also see sinful acts and crimes human beings have committed, being driven by evil spirits.

Before the human history began, this universe did not include any evil things.  But desire, greed, hatred, and other foolish and inhumane characteristics of mankind generated so many evil things in this universe.  After the Big Bang till the rise of mankind, this universe had been clean and benign without any evil elements, though it looked so dynamic, violent, and horrible sometimes.

If intellectual faculties of mankind were very low, there must be little damage on the earth.  With evil minds and high mental ability, mankind has been destroying the nature and their own members through foolish industrial activities and bloody wars.

Was this earth was created for evil spirits to harm and pollute it in exchange of satisfying human desire?

Something is wrong.

Were intellectual living things that would emerge on the earth inherently destined by any natural laws or universal inevitability for abusing the nature and their members to satisfy their desire?

Everything mankind has invented and created using their high mental ability is turning to be means with which evil people make a fortune or satisfy their desire.  Even religions are being abused by bad guys, no to mentions science, technologies, laws, and ideologies.

If there is no God, mankind would go along this evil course till the end, continuing to damage the earth and humanity.  If mankind should expand their active scope to Mars and other celestial objects, still the rule of evil spirits would continue.

But, if there is God and He cannot accept this foolish expansion of the human world, He must interfere at a certain point of history.  It was actually 2000 years ago when Christ Jesus was born.  And it should be today 2000 years after the birth of Christ Jesus.

This evil world created by mankind on the earth must be wiped away by God who must hate spiritual and material contamination of the earth and human minds.

"son of man, be not afraid of them" - A Mother and her Child in Old Japan


A Mother and her Child in Old Japan

Once in Japan or in and before the 19th century, unique child adoption was practiced in some local areas.

A poor mother would sometimes travel around with her little child she could not raise by herself.  From a village to another and from a house to another, such a mother asked free accommodation for the night.  No villagers would rather reject such a request, though they knew what she hoped for.

One of such mothers asked a night's lodging and a meal from a farm house.  The mother and her child took a humble supper with the host family.  They didn't talk much.  And later family members retired to sleep in different rooms.  But the mother and child was left in the dining room with a wooden floor and the "irori" hearth.  They slept around the hearth set in the central part of the wooden floor.

She could have woken up early in the morning to leave the house, leaving her child.  Then, the host family would have naturally taken the child as an adopted one.  It was a common custom in some local areas in Japan.

But in this particular case, she thought that her little boy would have to sleep on the wooden floor after he was adopted while other family members would sleep in "tatami" mattress rooms.  She could not bear the image.  So, she took her child with her to continue travelling and finding a suitable house.

Finally in one village house, she could entrust her poor child to an old woman who took the little boy to her sleeping chamber for the night, saying, "Oh, poor little child. I will take this one into my bedding."

Later, this child grew up to be a full-fledged worker, and one day he visited a village where his mother had once come from.  But he didn't return and live in the village.   He continued to live in the village where he had been adopted, inheriting some fortune from the fostering family, though it was not large as he was an adopted member.

So, once in Japan or in and before the 19th century, unique child adoption was practiced in some local areas.

Eze 2:5 And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.
Eze 2:6 And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
Eze 2:7 And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.

"Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it" - Three Planes at Dusk

Tokyo and Mt. Fuji with a Star above

Three Planes at Dusk

At yesterday's dusk, I saw a military transport plane flying 2 km high toward Tokyo.  While I was watching it, something fast came to pass by it in the sky.  It was a jet fighter flying at almost the same altitude.

The sun was going down leaving the last glow of the day.  It looked bright yellow heavily tinged with red, whose glimpse I could follow till it faded over woods.

My eyes were tracking the jet fighter, now just a tiny black dot in the grey sky.  Then another military transport plane appeared from the sky over Tokyo.  Its path crossed the course of the first transport plane.  They didn't collide against each other, eventually.

Whatever the three airplanes symbolized, I was in the middle of the winter around Tokyo so peacefully.

"cloven tongues like as of fire" - 250 Million Year Cycle


250 Million Year Cycle

Our solar system circulates around to the center of our galaxy.

It takes 250 million years for our solar system to make circuit.

And 250 million years ago a great extinction of living things occurred on the earth. When our solar system was on the same position 250 million years ago as it is today, up to 96% of all marine species and 70% of terrestrial vertebrate species became extinct.

This event is called the Permian–Triassic (P–Tr) extinction event, which paved the way for dominance of dinosaurs though it took 10 million years for creatures on the earth came to flourish again after the the P–Tr extinction.

For God to create mankind, He had to first destroy most of creatures on the earth 250 million years ago and then He had to destroy dinosaurs 65 million years ago.

In other word, human beings might have been born 250 million years ago, but the emergence of the human species needed the preceding era of dinosaurs' dominance.

In my theory, we are now entering a dangerous era in the scale of the galaxy whose diameter is 100,000 light years.  Something in the earth might be influenced by the position of the solar system in the galaxy, and it might trigger a long-term and large-scale natural disaster like simultaneous eruptions of tens of thousands of volcanoes on the earth.  If so, up to 96% of all marine species and 70% of terrestrial vertebrate species would get extinct, probably, within tens of thousands of years.

And afterward, a new type of human species might dominate over the earth.  In the next time that the solar system comes to the same position within the galaxy as it is today, the earth might not have a memory of our civilization and religions.      

Indeed, only God is great!

The sun is about 26,000 light-years from the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, which is about 80,000 to 120,000 light-years across (and less than 7,000 light-years thick). We are located on on one of its spiral arms, out towards the edge. It takes the sun -and our solar system- roughly 200-250 million years to orbit once around the Milky Way. In this orbit, we are traveling at a velocity of about 155 miles/sec (250 km/sec).

Professors Medvedev and Melott of the University of Kansas have a different theory based on the same regular motion.  As the Sun ventures out "above" the galactic plane, it becomes increasingly exposed to the cosmic ray generating shock front that the Milky Way creates as it ploughs through space.  As we get closer to this point of maximum exposure, leaving the shielding of the thick galactic disk behind, the Kansas researchers hold that the increasing radiation destroys many higher species, forcing another evolutionary epoch.  This theory also matches in time with the dinosaur extinction.

Act 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
Act 2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
Act 2:3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
Act 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

"King of the Jews" - The Hand Must Rot Off

Mt. Fuji with a Star above, from Tokyo

The Hand Must Rot Off

Most of Japanese have never read the Bible.

But those who have never read the Koran are  more than those who have never read the Bible.

In the Japanese version of the Koran, Allah is often angry and scolds people with sever words.  It is not the image most of Japanese have of God.  Allah also accuses the ungodly and unbelievers in a manner that looks simply horrible to Japanese.  Allah in the Koran is too rough for Japanese to accept Him.

But the English translation of the Koran might sound a little more moderate than the Japanese version.

111 Surat Al-Masad (The Palm Fiber, Flame) 
May the hands of Abu Lahab be ruined, and ruined is he.
His wealth will not avail him or that which he gained.
He will [enter to] burn in a Fire of [blazing] flame
And his wife [as well] - the carrier of firewood.
Around her neck is a rope of [twisted] fiber.

I am truly afraid that the hand of any terrorist who kills a Japanese might get ruined.

(Of course, if a Japanese kills a pious Muslim, his hand might rot off.)

"into Capernaum" - Jesus Foresaw Islam

Mt. Fuji at Dusk, 100 km from Tokyo, with a Star above; The Tokyo Skytree Tower 

Jesus Foresaw Islam

Did Jesus foretell the future emergence of Islam?

Some believe so.
We read from the lips of Jesus (saas), in the Gospel of John, as he is speaking to his disciples, the following prophesy: "And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever— the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you."(John 14:16-17) Jesus (saas) goes on to say: "But the Counselor, the Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you." (John 14:26), and further: "But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, [even] the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me" (John 15:26) and Further:  
"Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew [it] unto you."(John 16:7-14).  
Notice that in various places this Prophesy is for, what is referred to either as a "Comforter" or a "Counselor." -Both of these words are the translations of what is the same word in the Greek manuscript, the Greek word "Paraclete." 
There has been much confusion over these verses, and who/what the Paraclete is, although the traditionally accepted view today is that these verses refer to the Holy Spirit. However it is important to note, that this verse is rather ambiguous, and many Christian historians make an interesting note. From The Anchor Bible, Doubleday & Company, Inc, Volume 29A, p. 1135 we read the following VERY interesting note: "…scholars like Spitta, Delafosse, Windisch, Sasse, Bultmann, and Betz have doubted whether this identification is true to the original picture and have suggested that the Paraclete was once an independent salvific figure, later confused with the Holy Spirit." 
So this gets us thinking. A lot of early Christians did NOT interpret this to be a Spirit. Very interesting! But, the plot thickens! Let us take another glance at the word "Paraclete." 
Paraclete comes from the Greek Root word Parakletos. From this same root word comes it's derivitive, Periklytos, which means, "Praised one." Does anyone know what the Arabic word for "Praised one" is? If you guessed "Muhammad" you are right!
Today, the Western society is losing morals.

Along with advancement of capitalism and commercialism, Christianity has lost influential power  on people.   Greedy and immorality have become the norm.  Traditional moral codes of conduct have been neglected in pursue of wealth.

Major companies and influential businesses are advertising their goods and services by using TV and diffusing very indecent commercial messages.  They are arousing lust of people.  They are making consumers buy more goods and services by presenting a fantasy of enjoying rich lives.  Churches cannot cope with this trend of desire-driven economy.  As a result, while being indecent, greedy, or abnormal, Europeans and Americans think they can be blessed by God to be admitted into Heaven after death.  Commercialism has finally brainwashed Christians in Europe and America.

Today, no Christians blame Wall Street for its greedy and Hollywood for its indecency and abnormality.  They never blame the British royal family and the noble class for the same reasons.

Even the Pope looks like losing holy and spiritual power.  He does not live like a homeless person.  He is just one of a member of the European high society.

Then what would God do to Europeans and Americans?

He might use Muslims who look more pious and more obedient to God.  God might show that He loves poor Muslims than rich Christians.  Or He might request Western Christians to show that their faith is stronger than that of Muslims.

But is is very horrible that this challenge for Christians against Muslims is posed through acts of terrorists or murders who call themselves Muslims.

Maybe through this conflict between Western Christian countries and Islamic terrorists, Christians might feel responsible for this world contaminated by capitalism and commercialism.  When this de-facto war between Western countries and Islamic terrorists is over, Christians in the world might come to be closer to Muslims, at least, in enthusiasm for practicing their religion.

And, as Christ Jesus is God, He must have foreseen the rise of Islam long before the birth of holy Muhammad in 570.  But the Bible might have omitted His critical words on Islam for some reasons.  We may have now only a vague prophecy on Islam in the Christian Gospels.

Mar 2:1 And again he entered into Capernaum after some days; and it was noised that he was in the house.
Mar 2:2 And straightway many were gathered together, insomuch that there was no room to receive them, no, not so much as about the door: and he preached the word unto them.
Mar 2:3 And they come unto him, bringing one sick of the palsy, which was borne of four.
Mar 2:4 And when they could not come nigh unto him for the press, they uncovered the roof where he was: and when they had broken it up, they let down the bed wherein the sick of the palsy lay.
