"I have no room where to bestow my fruits" - Money Makes People Hate One Another


Money Makes People Hate One Another

Wherever you may go, you find rich people and poor people.

There are no countries where all the people are equally rich or poor.  In any human societies, there are rich people and poor people.  Or in any eras in the past there were rich people and poor people.

And, in any societies, to become rich and keep wealth, you have to neglect poor people, commit any crimes, and control society with intention to keep yourself rich.

In other words, most of crimes in a society are rooted in this gap between the rich and the poor or in evil acts and deeds the rich commit to protect their wealth.  And the less the rich have love to the poor, the more they will harm and damage the poor.

The point at issue is that it is not what God expected the mankind to do.  God did not expect that the rich occupy wealth by sacrificing the poor and accumulate wealth by exploiting the poor.  However, the mankind clearly started this mode of living at a certain period of time.

It looks like having been triggered when the mankind started agriculture in a large scale like in ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, etc.  And, then it seems to have been intensified by introduction of money.  And, people came to think that it was natural to think hat the aim of their lives was to become rich.   Some people even came to think that being rich was good and being poor was evil.

The first man who has ever clearly pointed at evil of the rich and condemned the rich for their evil ways of living is Christ Jesus.  He even told that rich men would be thrown to the hell after their death.

So, we have to think that God sent Christ Jesus to the human world to proclaim that God hates the rich and does not admit them into Heaven.

The significance of Christ Jesus and Christianity is in this regard: God hates rich men.  Indeed most of tragedies in this world are rooted in the situation that no rich men help poor men or rich men are abusing poor men, or money makes people hate one another.

Luk 12:17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits?
Luk 12:18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods.
Luk 12:19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry.
Luk 12:20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided?

"Peter continued knocking" - It is Evil People that are Wrong but not God

Tokyo Bay

It is Evil People that are Wrong but not God

Allah has not helped Syrians, Iraqis, and other Muslims.

So, you may think that Allah has nothing to do with plights Muslims have faced.  You may think Allah exists but He has no intention to save Muslims.

The same thing happened with Judaists in WWII.  God did no save Judaists from Nazis.  Judaiats might have thought that God has nothing to do with their plight, and God exists but He has no intention to save Juadaits.

However, many Muslims as well as Judaiats and Christians seem to think that it is not God that has made people suffer but bad people.  God gave freedom to human beings, so that bad men can act on his evil motivations, harming and killing others without reference from God.  And victims who have lost all hopes can still pray to God, since God is the creator of the universe and soles of human beings.

God is not ordering bad people to attack, harm, and kill the innocent.  Bad people are attacking, harming, and killing others on their own initiatives without any relation to God.  God is not responsible for all these tragedies.  It is human beings who were given freedom by God that are responsible for the Holocaust, the wars in Syria and Iraq, and any other wars in the past.

God has never used bad people to make the faithful suffer.  God is not responsible.

You cannot deny existence of God only because God has not interfered to save lives of the victims, such as Judaists in WWII and Muslims of today.

Besides, God is the creator of lives of human beings.  He can create new human lives as many as possible while compensating losses of lives of those victims.

Anyway, we should not doubt existence of God only because of the Holocaust and the current tragedy in Syria and Iraq.  It is bad human beings that have made the faithful suffer and get harmed and killed.  It means that there were chances that human beings could prevent those tragedies beforehand.

Wars are not caused by God but by bad and evil people.  Based on the principle that the mankind is responsible collectively for what they have done, we should not expect that God immediately comes and saves lives of victims of a war human beings have started.

It is evil people that are wrong but not God at all in terms of tragedies such as war.

Act 12:16 But Peter continued knocking: and when they had opened the door, and saw him, they were astonished.
Act 12:17 But he, beckoning unto them with the hand to hold their peace, declared unto them how the Lord had brought him out of the prison. And he said, Go shew these things unto James, and to the brethren. And he departed, and went into another place.

"as a flood after the woman" - Love God with all of Ability and Power


Love God with all of Ability and Power

Christ Jesus said to love God with all of our ability and power.  But specifically what should we do?

The first step is to think about God: how great God is; how omnipotent God is; and how wonderful God is.  The second step is to appreciate and praise God: how wonderful that God gave birth to us; how wonderful that God created this universe; and how wise God is in His creating this world.

But at the third step, we have to do something based on our recognition and appreciation of God to show our love to God.

Maybe we have to leave our rooms, houses, communities, towns, cities, provinces, etc. to the places God would indicate to us.  And when reach the places, God would show us what to do.

All we have to do is do what is requested by God with all of our heart, ability, and power.

Then, what the whole world will be if the whole mankind honestly follow this teaching of Christ Jesus?

Rev 12:15 And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away of the flood.
Rev 12:16 And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened her mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth.

"Stretch forth thine hand" - True Holy Trinity

A Local Area North of Tokyo

 True Holy Trinity

There are three cases: a case (C1) that Jesus is an ordinary man, another case (C2) that Jesus is is God, and the third case (C3) that Jesus is a prophet.

If the history was not embodied or before the history proceeded, the state must be a combination of C1+C2+C3.  In this state, Jesus might be God, an ordinary man, and a prophet at the same time.

Or, it tells that in principle any man can be an ordinary man, God, and a prophet.  But it is the state before he was born.  After he was born, he must be either of  an ordinary man, God, or a prophet.  And out of 10 billion people, 9,999,999,990 persons are ordinary people.  And out of 10 billion people, only nine become prophets.  Finally only one out of 10 billion human beings who have ever lived turned to be God, who is Christ Jesus.

However, Jesus has preserved all these three potential states all through His life and after His life as an ordinary man and a prophet in this world.

So, Judaists have seen only an ordinary man in Him; Muslims have seen only a prophet in Him.  But, some people, mostly called Christians, have seen God in Him.

More specifically, Jesus is also the Messiah (savior), the son of God, or the son of man (a holy spirit in the form of a man).

Anyway, before you were born, you were in the state of a combination of a rich man, a poor man, and a tragic man.  But as your life is getting embodied, you state comes to be fixed as a rich man, a poor man, or a tragic man.  In theory, you can maintain the original state of the combination, as Jesus could, but in reality your state is fixed to either of them.

So, Christ Jesus was in the state of combination of C1+C2+C3.   But the state of God is the most important.  Compared with significance that He was God, other possible states had almost no meaning.

Indeed, Christ Jesus is meaningful as he can be in the state of C2: He is God.  We may as well forget about C1 and C3.

Truly, God is almighty so that He can be an ordinary man, God, and a prophet at the same time or either of them on each different occasion.  This must be the true Holy Trinity.

Mat 12:11 And he said unto them, What man shall there be among you, that shall have one sheep, and if it fall into a pit on the sabbath day, will he not lay hold on it, and lift it out?
Mat 12:12 How much then is a man better than a sheep? Wherefore it is lawful to do well on the sabbath days.
Mat 12:13 Then saith he to the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it forth; and it was restored whole, like as the other.

"the head of the corner" - Infinity, Miracle and God

Mt. Fuji viewed from around Tokyo

Infinity, Miracle and God

You cannot point at a specific on a sheet of paper such as one designated as (1, 1) in a coordination system.

There are an infinite number of points on the sheet each of which can be expressed as (x, y) while x and y can take any real numbers such as (0.01, -0.95)

The possibility that you can correctly indicate the one point (1, 1) is one divided by infinity, which is virtually zero.  Or it means you have to try to point at points in an infinite number of times.  The number of your trial is counted from one to two, two to three, and further to a million or a trillion.  But as long as it is counted, it cannot reach infinity.

However, there exist infinite number of points on the sheet from the beginning, though you cannot confirm it by counting every point.

Something that is infinity from the beginning always exceeds an effort to count the number from one toward infinity.  It means you cannot point at any single point, on a sheet with an infinite number of points, which is specified with an coordinate unvisible.  

But by chance, you may just point at the point (1, 1).  It is a miracle.

If you beforehand mark an appropriate point with a notion of (1, 1), you can then easily point at the point (1, 1) on a sheet with an infinite number of points.  It is because you acted like a creator of the universe when you marked the point.

If something that is only possible by an infinite number of trials is realized, it is a miracle.  That is why the fact that this universe exists is a miracle.  The fact that you live at this moment is a miracle.  And a miracle is an act of God.  Therefore, this universe was created by God.

If an infinite number of times the Big Bang occurred, it would be still impossible to create this universe.  There are an infinite number of incomplete universes produced after an infinite number of  times of Big Bangs; however their is just only one complete universe suitable for emergence of our life, which is of course this universe.  So, this universe was created by a miracle, that is, by God.

What I want to emphasize is that something that is infinity from the beginning always exceeds an effort to count the number from one toward infinity.

God is from the beginning infinity to us who have to count from one toward infinity to realize infinity.
