"Get thee behind me, Satan" - Like Living in the Solitary Island

Around Tokyo

Like Living in the Solitary Island

If you are brought into a house where you are provided with foods and any entertainments you like, you still want to know where the house stands.  And if you find it is on a small island in the middle of the ocean and there are no means by which to get out of it, you may give up and start to eat foods and enjoy entertainments as long as you live.

But you will surely try to find who has brought you to the jail house in the solitary island far off in the ocean.  But you may soon give up your thinking and start enjoying foods and entertainments.

If you are accompanied by a group of people, there will be some dramas and various incidents involving all these people.  Then you may really forget that you are forced to live in the house as you are absorbed with human dramas going on in the house with the group of people.

Put simply, we human beings are living in such a way on this planet.  Our souls were brought to this planet and are forced to live as human beings.  We look up at the sky at night to see that this planet earth is completely isolated from other planets and stars.  Besides, we have foods and any types of entertainments.  And we are absorbed with incidents caused by us on the earth.

However, as the island and the house are surely monitored and observed by someone, this planet earth must be monitored and observed by God.

And, as that someone who brought you to the island and the house must expect you to think over and find who brought you to the solitary island and the mystery house and why he did so, God must expect human beings to think over who brought their souls to the planet earth and why.

We human beings are today behaving on this planet earth like people who are brought to the mysterious house in the solitary island far off in the ocean.

We have to stop eating favorite foods and enjoying entertainments and start to think about who God is and why He made us live on the earth.
