"If Satan also be divided against himself" - Satan and American Voters

Tokyo Bay

Satan and American Voters

Christ Jesus talked about Satan.  It shows that not only Christ Jesus but also people around Him believed existence of Satan.  But how many people believe existence of Satan today?
Majority of Americans believe in the devil - especially Republicans, blacks and women 
A survey found that 57 percent of respondents believe that the devil exists, including 72 percent of African Americans, 65 percent of Republicans and and 61 percent of women 
Most believers are Christian and live in the South

The victory of Trump in the 2016 Presidential Election is said that Republicans and women opted for Trump  over Hillary Clinton, and blacks did not support her as much as they had supported Obama in 2012.  It means that those who believe in Satan found more evil in Hillary and her supporters than in Trump and his supporters.

However, the billionaire Trump cannot enter Heaven if Hillary is allowed into Heaven.

What God has done often looks mysterious to human eyes.

In addition, those American voters who believe in Satan are not necessarily promised to be allowed into Heaven.

Luk 11:18 If Satan also be divided against himself, how shall his kingdom stand? because ye say that I cast out devils through Beelzebub.
Luk 11:19 And if I by Beelzebub cast out devils, by whom do your sons cast them out? therefore shall they be your judges.

"Then when Jesus came" - $23,000 and $10,400 as Result of the Industrial Revolution

Tokyo, Japan

$23,000 and $10,400 as Result of the Industrial Revolution

The total amount of financial assets owned by individuals world wide was $168 trillion in 2015.  The number of the global population was about 7.1 billion.   It meas the amount of financial assets per person worldwide was $23,000.

The total amount of GDP worldwide was $73.5 trillion in 2015.  It means the amount of GDP per person worldwide is $10,400.

So, if this was truly a fair and equal world, each person in the world would have $23,000 assets and produce or earn $10,400 per year.

In other words, if you have personal assets of more than $23,000  and earn $10,400 year, you are a sinner.

It should be noted that the economy of today is in the extension of the Industrial Revolution:
The commencement of the Industrial Revolution is closely linked to a small number of innovations, beginning in the second half of the 18th century.

However, it was in the 19th century that the effect of those innovations came to clearly appear in Europe, North America, and Japan.

So, the issue is whether the world gets into another Industrial Revolution to further expand its GDP, the world starts to collapse due to evil of the Industrial Revolution, or the world may shift to the Kingdom of God leaving the paradigm of the Industrial Revolution in future.

"And the four and twenty elders" - An Effect of an Additional Element

Mt. Fuji, Japan

An Effect of an Additional Element

When there is a simple relation ship between X and Y, we can add a simple element to it.  Then we think that the relation will not change drastically.  But, in fact, it can be when some operation is applied to the relationship.

For example, by reversing X to 1/X and Y to 1/Y in a mathematical expression of the relation, we can get a drastic change.

You may suppose that X and Y is a man and wife and an additional element is a child.  A couple with a child faces a very different situation from that of another couple without children.

Or, you may suppose that X and Y is a holy spirit and a man and an additional element is another person.   The tie between a holy spirit and a man changes to a very different state when another person is involved.

It means that you cannot make little of any additional change in a situation.  Even a tiny little element introduced into your spiritual world might cause a big change.

One mathematical example is as follows:

Y = X is one of the simplest functions as Y =2 if X = 2.

Y = X + 1 looks also simple as Y = 3 if X =2.

If Y and X of Y = X are reversed, 1/Y = 1/X.
Then by multiplying both the sides by XY, we can obtain: X = Y which is basically the same as Y = X.

If Y and X of Y = X +1 are reversed, 1/Y = 1/X + 1.
Then by multiplying XY, we can obtain X = Y + XY.
As Y + XY is Y(1+X), X = Y(1+X).
It can be changed to Y = X/(X+1)
In this function, Y is always less than 1 since X < X+1.

Y = X + 1 means Y - X =1, like 3 - 2 = 1; 5 - 4 = 1; 11 - 10 = 1 and so on.
 1/Y = 1/X + 1 means 1/Y - 1/X = 1, like Y =  1/3 and X = 1/2; Y = 1/11 and X = 1/10.

Both the equations have simple meaning.  The first one means that the difference between Y and X is one.  The second one means that the difference between 1/Y and 1/X is also one.

But the second one is expressed as Y = X/(X+1) in the non-reversed form, which is a little complicated in graphical expression.   And the value of Y is always less than 1, no matter how big X becomes.   But in Y = X, Y can be as large as X over 1.

Rev 11:16 And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God,
Rev 11:17 Saying, We give thee thanks, O LORD God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned.

"he shall reign for ever and ever" - Sins caused by Randomness

Mt. Fuji viewed from around Tokyo

Sins caused by Randomness

If there are two men: one with money and another without money.  Then what would happen?

One might kill another to protect his money, or another might kill other to steal money.  Or one with money give some to another or even share the money with another.

In most cases, they would surely get into a trouble with each other over the money.   Their relationship will get tense.  Their friendship will be broken.  One of them might get angry at and hate another.  One with the money would try every trick to protect his money, while another would take any measures to get some or all of the money from the other.

There are many cases.  You may easily imagine 10 or more possible incidents that can happen between them over the money.  And only a few cases show that they can get along well with each other despite the money or even due to the money.

Most probably, 98 or 97 out of 100 possible scenarios would end up with a trouble between them.   And in only a few case, they will increase their friendship over the money.

This is like physical phenomena involving entropy.  A state of an physical entity will proceed to the direction where randomness is increased.  To keep the state in order, special potential is needed.

Therefore, a sate of human society would change toward randomness or disruption, mess, confusion, or violence eventually.  To keep the state in peace and harmonization, special potential is needed.  And this potential is religious teaching or guidance given by God.

For example, without the Koran, societies and communities in Arabic regions, etc. would change toward randomness, disruption, mess, confusion, or violence eventually.

For another example, without the Bible,  societies and communities in Europe and Americas would change toward randomness, disruption, mess, confusion, or violence eventually.

The teaching of Christ Jesus has been working to keep the state of human society from falling into randomness and disruption.

Christ Jesus said that his sheep could hear and discern his voices.  If one hears holy voices inside him, he would try to keep order and avoid falling into sins caused by his mind state in randomness and disruption.

State change:

Rev 11:15 And the seventh angel sounded; and there were great voices in heaven, saying, The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.

"this is Elias" - The First will be the Last


The First will be the Last

There is a philosophy in the Japanese Buddhism that one should abandon relying on himself to be spiritually saved but has to wholly rely on Buddhist deities, and therefore bad men would be more easily saved than good men.

It is because a human being has only limited capacity in doing good or evil.  Even his power of self salvation is limited.  If he relies on himself, he would turn back to infinite power of the Buddha and other Buddhist deities.

In this context, one who has been living a decent life is proud of himself as a good man.  So he would stick to himself and his goodness in the final moment of his life and rely on his capacity to be saved.   But as a result, he makes it difficult for him to be saved by the Buddha and other Buddhist deities.

In contrast, one who has committed various sins and crimes is aware of his small capacity to save himself.  He knows that he cannot be saved by himself.  So, such a bad man would rather turn to  the Buddha and other Buddhist deities for salvation.  As a result, he makes it easier for him to be saved by the Buddha and other Buddhist deities.

This teaching denies superficial judgment on good and evil of people.  Those who look good and live good are not necessarily easily saved.  Rather those who live a sinful life can be more easily saved as they would have no meas to save themselves except relying on the Buddha and other Buddhist deities.

The life in this world is a matter of finiteness.   However, salvation of souls is a matter of infinity.  There will be great reversion or changeover of order and value when we get across the border from finiteness to infinity.  But none can comprehend it clearly and totally while they live.

So, Christ Jesus said, "The first will be the last while the last will be first."

"give the Holy Spirit to them" - Supermoon Miracle

 Supermoon around Tokyo

Supermoon Miracle

It takes about 1 second for light to travel from the moon to the earth.

So, Go could foresee that the mankind would set an hour by dividing a day into 24 hours, a minute by dividing an hour into 60 minutes, and a second by dividing a minute into 60 seconds, when He created the earth long before the establishment of the Sumer Civilization and the Greek Civilization.

God set the distance between the earth and the moon so that light would travel between them in one second when the mankind emerged on the earth and developed science, so that the mankind would know that God created the earth, the moon, and the universe.

The moon we see now is a moon one second before.

Average distance to the moon: 385,000 km
Distance to the supermoon: 356,500 km
Speed of light: about 300,000 km


Based on subdivisions of the moon cycle

  • Circa 1000, the Persian scholar al-Biruni, writing in Arabic, used the term second, and defined the division of time between new moons of certain specific weeks as a number of days, hours, minutes, seconds, thirds, and fourths after noon Sunday.[10]
  • In 1267, the medieval scientist Roger Bacon, writing in Latin, defined the division of time between full moons as a number of hours, minutes, seconds, thirds, and fourths (horaeminutasecundatertia, and quarta) after noon on specified calendar dates.[11]
