"no root in themselves" - The Most Important Question for Mankind


The Most Important Question for Mankind

Suppose that God created human beings, though through a very long process since the Big Bang of the universe, yet why must He have created human beings?

This is the most significant question for mankind as the sole representative of all the creatures so far.  Especially, when we observe the world, we cannot help but admit that the human world is occupied by Satan rather than a great angel of God.  If the God could foresee that Satan would capture most of human souls, why did God have to create human beings?

It is also a big surprise that there is no embedded spiritual mechanism in any human being that would inevitably make him follow the word of God.  He is given liberty and freedom to follow Satan and evil ways of life.

What is strange is the fact that God sent His Son to the human world to save them all.  Didn't God foresee that mankind would betray Him someday when He decided to create human souls?

The only answer or clue we have is in teachings of Christ Jesus: God is love.  Before He created mankind, did He love them?  It is very strange, but God is almighty.  He must be able to love what is not yet to exist.  It means that God knew before creating this universe that mankind would follow Satan, who would tempt mankind with money; nonetheless God opted to create the universe and mankind.  God has been giving life to every human being most of whom should betray Him following Satan.  

So, this question, "God, why did you create human beings?," is the most difficult one, since we may not be able to understand whatever answer we may be given.

But God also gives death to human beings in addition to life.  We are not immortal angels.  We were born, live, and die.  But God exists forever, even if Satan cannot.  Indeed, the answer might be given when we complete this cycle from birth to death.

Anyway, though Christ Jesus suggested that God created mankind because He loved them, Christ Jesus just requested us to love God.  All we have to believe is that God loves us, so that He gave us life with a request for us to love God in return.  But why does He need our love?

The most important question is yet to be fully comprehended.  

By the way, if God is the infinite and we are integers, there are two extreme ways to gain access to God:

Method No.1: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7............ => Infinite

Method No.2: 1 + 1/2 + 1/3 + 1/4 + 1/5 + 1/6 + 1/7......=> Infinite

But is there any difference in access speed between them, if addition is made once per second?

The answer is that both the methods do not realize the infinite forever, so that this question is meaningless.  But, it is meaningful to continue addition toward the Infinite.  A decision to continue addition forever may be appreciated by the Infinite.

Mar 4:16 And these are they likewise which are sown on stony ground; who, when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with gladness;
Mar 4:17 And have no root in themselves, and so endure but for a time: afterward, when affliction or persecution ariseth for the word's sake, immediately they are offended.

"Nazareth, where he had been brought up" - Money degrades all the gods of man

The Tokyo Station

Money degrades all the gods of man

Karl Marx wrote:
Money is the jealous god of Israel, in face of which no other god may exist. Money degrades all the gods of man – and turns them into commodities. Money is the universal self-established value of all things. It has, therefore, robbed the whole world – both the world of men and nature – of its specific value. Money is the estranged essence of man’s work and man’s existence, and this alien essence dominates him, and he worships it.
In this paragraph, Israel can be read as Europeans.  Then you can understand what Marx wanted to say or what he realized.

Indeed, an excellent anarchist wrote on Marx, alleging that Marx was not a friend of poor men but a friend of super-rich men.
Bakunin on Marx and Rothschild

“Himself a Jew, Marx has around him, in London and France, but especially in Germany, a multitude of more or less clever, intriguing, mobile, speculating Jews, such as Jews are every where: commercial or banking agents, writers, politicians, correspondents for newspapers of all shades, with one foot in the bank, the other in the socialist movement, and with their behinds sitting on the German daily press — they have taken possession of all the newspapers — and you can imagine what kind of sickening literature they produce. Now, this entire Jewish world, which forms a single profiteering sect, a people of bloodsuckers, a single gluttonnous parasite, closely and intimately united not only across national borders but across all differences of political opinion — this Jewish world today stands for the most part at the disposal of Marx and at the same time at the disposal of Rothschild. I am certain that Rothschild for his part greatly values the merits of Marx, and that Marx for his part feels instinctive attraction and great respect for Rothschild. 
This may seem strange. What can there be in common between Communism and the large banks? Oh! The Communism of Marx seeks enormous centralization in the state, and where such exists, there must inevitably be a central state bank, and where such a bank exists, the parasitic Jewish nation, which. speculates on the work of the people, will always find a way to prevail ....”

Source: Michael Bakunin, 1871, Personliche Beziehungen zu Marx. In: Gesammelte Werke. Band 3. Berlin 1924. P. 204-216. [My translation - UD].
No Judaists have been taught to hate money but love God.  Marx hated others' money but loved his money.

Marx probably wanted to make others poor but make himself rich.  He happened to be born as a Judaist, which was not so advantageous in European society.  Due to his religion, he could not be easily rich.  But there were many rich and super-rich Judaists, such as Rothschilds.  So, Marx did not give up his hope to become rich.  And all he could do is to write something.

Accordingly, Marx had to attack, abuse, and neglect other Judaists in his writing.  He must have written his books to appeal to rich Europeans who could understand and help him.  Marx demonstrated that he loved money and he wanted to be rich, while presenting his talent in economics with a wish that some super-rich men would come to think that they had better become a friend of Marx's who had such a talent and could be dangerous if let him alone.

Even in this case of Marx, or a case of a Judaist, if he doesn't love God, he must surely love money.  But Marx loved his money and maybe Rothschild's money (as Rothschild understood him) but not money of others, including Christians and Judaists.

So we may as well think: Money is the jealous god of Europeans, in face of which no other god may exist. 

Before power of money, such differences in religion as that between Christianity and Judaism have no value, according to Marx.

Luk 4:17 And there was delivered unto him the book of the prophet Esaias. And when he had opened the book, he found the place where it was written,
Luk 4:18 The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,

"beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles" - Hitler Effect


Hitler Effect

Hitler didn't look like a Northern European.

He looked like an Italian or a Portuguese.  Rather, he looked like a Judaist.  But when he delivered a speech, he looked like a real fighter against Judaists.  No one doubted that he knew every evil of Judaists as he resembled them.  As Hitler resembled Judaists, he must be able to understand evil of Judaists more than anybody, people thought.

On the other hand, Hitler thought that he had not been successful in society as he looked like Judaists.  Hitler thought if he had looked like a typical Northern European, he should have been accepted and thought of highly by Austrians and Germans.  Poor and young Hitler thought that the reason why he had been apparently rejected by the main stream society in the German speaking society due to his resemblance to Judaists must be that He had a holy mission to eradicate Judaists from Austria and Germany.

Hitler thought that a Higher Spirit made him look like a Jewish person to make him hate Judaists.  He though that he had to accept this terrible fate.

But, at the same time, Hitler was afraid that some Germans might come to think that he resembled Jewish people too much; but why?   In order to remove such suspicion, he thought that he had to be the cruelest man against Judaists.    

Taking this strategy, Hitler succeeded.  Ordinary German people thought secretly that Hitler looked like a Judaist but such Germans were not so rare; Hitler was one of Christian Germans who looked like Jewish people; Hitler's ancestors must have come from the south of the Alps to Austria; and such guys were a kind of funny and not threatening to Germans with Norther European traits.  Hitler was accepted as a kind of jokes.  He could be even loved by smiling Northern Europeans.

In some extreme cases, Hitler's followers must have thought that they had to save their leader Hitler by annihilating his likes, namely Judaists, since their resemblance to Hitler must have made the great leader suffer so much.

So, it is said that six million Judaists were killed by Hitler and his subordinates and admirers.  Hitler must have been thinking that you, Judaists, were wrong because you looked like me so much.

Finally what is the lesson?  

Hitler found that his resemblance to Judaists had made him fail in the German speaking society.  Hitler thought that he would be annihilated unless he annihilated Judaists.  So, he ventured into leading annihilation of Judaists for his survival and success.  But at any time, some Germans might point at Hitler, saying, "He looks like a Judaist!"  Hitler had to literally annihilate Jewish people till all the Judaists who looked like him were gone.  Then, he would be able to sleep in peace at night, he must have thought.

This kind of fear rising from one's personal sense of a crisis related to his physical traits is very strong in any society and at any time of history.  Accordingly, reference to one's physical characteristics should be avoided as much as possible in religion and other non-nonsense fields.

Therefore Judaists have not been excellent painters and sculptors like ancient Greeks or Romans.  Christians have never handed down physical traits of Christ Jesus and other key early followers of Him.  Islam forbade even imaging how Muhammad looked.

If there is somebody who looks like Moses, Christ Jesus or Muhammad, such a man might become another Hitler if he gets convinced of his resemblance to one of them.  It can be named the Hitler Effect.    

But too many sculptured figures and paintings of Holy Mary are seen in Europe.

Mat 4:14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,
Mat 4:15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthalim, by the way of the sea, beyond Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles;
Mat 4:16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.
Mat 4:17 From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.

"Jesus returned in the power of the Spirit into Galilee" - The Lost Ark and The Lost Empire


The Lost Ark and The Lost Empire 

One of the biggest mysteries in the human history is that concerned with the Lost Ark.
The Ark of the Covenant, also known as the Ark of the Testimony, is a chest described in the Book of Exodus[1] as containing the Tablets of Stone on which the Ten Commandments were inscribed. According to the New Testament Letter to the Hebrews,[2] the Ark also contained Aaron's rod, a jar of manna, and the first Torah scroll as written by Moses; however, the first of the Books of Kings says that at the time of King Solomon, the Ark contained only the two Tablets of the Law.

The Babylonian Conquest and aftermath
In 587 BC, the Babylonians destroyed Jerusalem and Solomon's Temple. There is no record of what became of the Ark in the Books of Kings and Chronicles. But 1 Esdras (the Greek 3rd Book of Ezra} suggests that Babylonians took away the vessels of the ark of God but does not mention taking away the Ark itself:
And they took all the holy vessels of the Lord, both great and small, with the vessels of the ark of God, and the king's treasures, and carried them away into Babylon
—1 Esdras 1:54
In Rabbinic literature, the final disposition of the Ark is disputed.
It is very strange that Israelites or Hebrews didn't make the best effort to secure the Ark by any means from Babylonians.

And it is also very strange that Israelites or Hebrews didn't make the best effort to find and take back the Ark from Babylonians.  And it is mysterious that there are no records about the fate of the Ark or about their efforts to find and take back the Ark when Israelites or Hebrews were allowed to return to Jerusalem.

A reasonable explanation should be that there were some concrete reasons that they couldn't mention the fate of the Ark.  And thus, there are no descriptions about the fate of the Ark in the Old Testament.

Even after they returned to Palestine and Jerusalem, they didn't make any efforts to find or recover the Ark.  It is as if they had completely given up the Ark, the core of their religion.

So, something horrible must have happened to the Ark when it was taken to Babylon.  And, if the fact was recorded in a book of Israelites or Hebrews, it should have damaged their religion and themselves.  Accordingly, everybody responsible kept secret about the fate of the Ark.  Then what happened to the Ark?

Let's check the sequence of the events: In 605 BCE, Babylonia defeated the Kingdom of Judah and besieged Jerusalem.  Since then till 539 BCE when Persia conquered Babylonia, Hebrews were brought to and kept around Babylon.  Persia allowed Hebrews to return to Palestine and build a new temple in Jerusalem.

The most important point is that Hebrews could not liberate themselves by themselves.  They were just a kind of rescued by Persians.  The Ark did not help Hebrews living around Babylon under Babylonian authority.  The Ark was useless for them.  And they were also useless for the Ark, since those Hebrews could not protect the Ark so that the great and holy legacy of Moses and God was not defiled by the hands of the heathen.

It is a great shame for Hebrews.

In fact, it is said that Judaism changed during this Babylon Captivity.  Hebrews wrote some books from a different view than that they had had before the Babylon Captivity.  Now they came to think that their God is not only God for Hebrews but also for all the mankind.  Hebrews' God became not only God of Abraham but also God of Adam and Eve.  Judaism started to be built in this ethnic crisis.

And, one reasonable explanation is that the Ark was secretly carried out of Jerusalem before the defeat of Hebrews.  Except those who took the action, nobody knew it.  Accordingly, the Hebrews in Babylonia didn't know the fate of the Ark.  Their descendants naturally came to lose interest in the Ark.  They had no more strong sense of religious duty to search for it.  The Ark was lost in the turmoil of the war against the Babylonians; that was all for them.  But what became of the Ark after some of Hebrews secretly carried it out of Jerusalem?  Maybe it is now in Ethiopia or in South Africa.

Another explanation is that the Ark fell in the hands of Persians or their king Cyrus the Great.  However, there are no records about how Persians handled the Ark.  But it is a historical fact that Persia became the first world-class empire in the human history after it conquered Babylon and freed Hebrews.
Later conquests under Cyrus and his successors expanded the empire to include Lydia, Babylon, Egypt, and the lands to the west of the Indus andOxus rivers. At its greatest extent, the empire included the modern territories of Iran,Iraq, Kuwait, Syria, Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, all significant population centers of ancient Egypt as far west as Libya, Turkey, Thrace and Macedonia, much of theBlack Sea coastal regions, Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan, much of Central Asia,Afghanistan, northern Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and parts of Oman and the UAE, making it the first world empire.[66] Conflict on the western borders began with the famousGreco-Persian Wars which continued through the first half of the 5th century BC and ended with the Persian withdrawal from all of their European territories.

Indeed, it looks like Persians came to be supported by the power of the Ark.  It is natural if they kept a secret of their possession of the Ark and its power.  But then, why wouldn't the Ark let Hebrews win the war against Babylonians?  Probably, there must have been some sort of blasphemy among Hebrews fighting Babylonians.

Truly God of Moses is God for all the mankind but not only for Hebrews alone.  God must have changed His mind and decided to support Persians.

And then God changed His mind again to support Alexander the Great who defeated Persians.  And then God changed His mind again to support Romans who even occupied and destroyed Jerusalem.  And then God changed His mind again to support Christians and the Vatican.

The power of the Ark might be still on the Vatican.

In my theory, Cyrus the Great occupied Babylon and confiscated the Ark.  He, naturally, opened the holy box to find two stone tables.  He must have been a kind of disappointed, since no jewels were inside it.  So, he put it into the River Euphrates.   When the Ark was submerged, the power of the Ark was freed and rested on the head of King Cyrus who started to build the great empire which might have been built by Hebrews if they had been more faithful to their God before the Babylon Captivity.

With the Ark gone, a chance of Hebrews to establish a global empire had been lost forever.

"And leaving Nazareth" - Why None Comes Back

Around Tokyo

Why None Comes Back

Why don't dead men come back to this world easily?

If a man has spirit that can survive his physical death, why doesn't his spirit come back to this world and try to communicate with other living men spiritually?

In reality, there are no cases that living people often or daily communicate with dead men they are familiar with.

The Bible depicts work of holy and evil spirits.  Though even Christ Jesus didn't communicate with souls of dead men, He seems to have communicated with holy spirits or God sometimes.  But He never encouraged His followers to have ability to communicate with souls of dead men, though He gave some of His followers power to drive out demons out of people's minds.

One of theories in this issue is that after one's death a person is judged to be admitted into Heaven or sent down to the hell.  And those who go to Heaven and see the glory of God never wish to come back to the human world under a strong influence of Satan.  On the other hand, those who are condemned to the hell are never allowed to get out of the hell; their ill souls are never allowed to come back to the human world to harm people.

Therefore, no dead men's souls would loiter in this world.  No dead men, whether blessed or coursed, come back to this human world.

So, the lesson is that this human world must be like a dirty and rotten pond; if people are allowed to move to the clean and fresh waters, they will never want to return and swim in the rank pond.

But how long will God overlook ill and evil minds of human beings soiling the spiritual domain in this universe?

"they may see, and not perceive" - How Significant Christ Is

Around Tokyo

How Significant Christ Is

What significance did Christ Jesus have?

1. It is a revolutionary notion that God sends to the human world His son as a human being though with ability to work miracles.

2. It is not money or wealth to save people and the world but faith and love.

3. It was clearly stated that mankind must love God and hate money.

4. It was clearly presented that Satan is real as well as angels and holy spirits.

5. It was proclaimed that the God of Abraham is the God of mankind.

6. The relationship between God and a man is defined as that between the father and a son.

7. It was declared that a man can win eternal life and live if his physical body is dead.

8. It was warned that there is no one good in this world but evil people are doomed to the hell.

9. It was confirmed that the poor can be loved by God but the rich are not.

10. The end of the world and the second coming of Christ were predicted.

We should not be absorbed in making business and enjoying life, but we have to think about the significance of Christ Jesus more and more.

Mar 4:11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:
Mar 4:12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.
Mar 4:13 And he said unto them, Know ye not this parable? and how then will ye know all parables?
