"Thy sins be forgiven thee" - And after Death of the Brain



Fukushima Prefecture after the Tsunami and Nuclear Accident in 2011


And after Death of the Brain

Everybody can take images and sounds from TV radio waves spreading in the air surrounding the earth only if he or she has a TV set.

Or everybody can enjoy a TV movie story on a TV set that can change TV radio waves into electronic signals that can present images and sounds through electric circuits of the TV set.  So, TV viewers can see every scene, incident, human and natural work, etc. on the TV screens.  However TV radio waves themselves are useless for human beings without televisions.

The  TV radio waves emitted from TV stations are simply physical electromagnetic waves that can, however, contain information about images and sounds.  These electromagnetic waves are essentially generated in machines in TV stations from controlled movement of electrons.  So, the electrons are the key to TV dramas and news reports that appear on the TV screen.

This movement of electrons are also the essence of work of the human brains.  Brain cells and cranial nerves flow and exchange electrons among them for their work necessary for natural and intellectual work for  human beings.  And, this movement of electrons cause voltages and electrical currents  which can be used for medical observation, and of course electromagnetic waves, although very weak and subtle.

If there was a micro machine, a type of microscopic TV set, with it, one might see images and sounds.  Then one can see  images and hear sounds in the brain of another.  But who has such a super machine?  Angels of God must have.

In this way, God can know everything, every work of our brains, and contents of our minds.  So, Christ Jesus said that God even knows the number of hairs of everyone.

But who else watches the super TV sets in our brains, presenting work of our brains and contents of our minds?  It must be a spirit of each one, which is sent by God from the spiritual world to the brain of each one.

So, when the body of a man dies and the brain ceases to work, his spirit leaves his brain and returns to the spiritual world, so that God judges what the spirit has seen in the brain.

What is meaningful in the brain from a view point of human beings but not only in terms of physics can be only handled by his or her spirit coming from the spiritual world. 

In this context, we are not simply material entities that have no spirits but also part of spiritual existence.  And after death, our life should be transferred to a spirit who has long observed work of each one's brain.

Luk 5:23 Whether is easier, to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee; or to say, Rise up and walk?
Luk 5:24 But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power upon earth to forgive sins, (he said unto the sick of the palsy,) I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house.

"And they come to Jesus" - Spirit, Mind, Soul, and Eternal life




Tokyo Bay

Spirit, Mind, Soul, and Eternal life

Christ Jesus once said that those who believed in Him and God would live even if they had died.

It means that after a man dies physically or his body dies, he could live spiritually.  The spirit of a man can have its own life, and through the spirit he can live after his physical death.

Christ Jesus also said that God is the spirit and God never dies.  So, if a man becomes a pure spirit without a physical body, he can live spiritually like God.

Our minds are contained in our physical brains, so that we are apt to think that mind is an adjunct to the brain or the physical body.  But, the truth must be the brain or the physical body is an adjunct to the spirit.

It is also because that as God is the spirit while He created this physical world and universe where our physical bodies belong, this physical world and universe is an adjunct to the spirit of God.  Therefore, fundamentally, spirit comes before a physical entity of a man.

In this context, our physical bodies or brains exist for us to develop our spirit in the physical world and universe.  And when our physical bodies die, our spirit should go to the spiritual world that belongs more directly to God than our physical bodies and the physical world.

Based on the words of Christ Jesus, our spirit should leave our bodies when we die and go to the spiritual world; otherwise Heaven and the hell about which Christ Jesus talked would be nonsense.

But what are our spirits?  A spirit must be extension of the mind of each man.  Even if you deny the existence of God, you are using your mind to think so, which means that you are also a spiritual entity that can exist, since God is the spirit.

Our minds are materially work of our brains.  Work of a brain is chemical and physical reactions of brain cells and cerebral nerves.  However, molecules and atoms as well as electrons are materials a unit of which cannot produce a mind or a spirit.  A mass, namely a brain, of billions or more of cells, molecules and atoms as well as electrons functions to produce a specific chemical and biological state which is a mind.  However, a mind does not belong to materials but constitute a spiritual world that must be part of the spiritual world where God lives.

The Bible says that a spirit comes down to each man like a dove flies to each man.  Then a spirit grows in each man and a soul is formed in each man.  Under the soul and spirit, a mind of each man should work.

Anyway, Christ Jesus said not to be afraid if a man should be killed for his faith in Christ Jesus and God, because such a man can get eternal life.

Mar 5:16 And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine.

" Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not" - Christ Jesus and God in the Spiritual World



Tokyo Bay

Christ Jesus and God in the Spiritual World

Christ Jesus said that God knew the numbers of hairs on our heads.  The Bible says that Christ Jesus knew what people thought.  But how can God know how we look and  what we think?

As there is no entity around us always watching us, God does not observe us like someone using a surveillance camera.  As our minds cannot be seen from the outside, God is not outside us.

Therefore, God is inside our mind and simultaneously outside our body.  It means that God does not belong to this world but has channels to see our thought in our minds.  It also means that God is in a different world or above the dimensions of the space and time of our world.  God lives in the world different from our world, where any natural laws we know are useless.

Our science is useless in the world beyond our material world.  So, Christ Jesus said that God was the Spirit.  Therefore God can see our appearances and minds without being noticed by us.  And we have no knowledge about the spiritual world where any natural laws we know are useless.  But it seems that our minds belong to the spiritual world as Christ Jesus said to adore God with our spirits.

However our minds do not exist without our brains while we are alive.  But Christ Jesus said that we could get eternal life if we had faith in God and we would not die as long as we believed in Christ Jesus even if we died physically.  So, we can spiritually live forever if we believe in God and Christ Jesus.  This is the critical teaching of Christ Jesus.

God never dies as He was not even born but exist always in the past, at present time, and in the future to forever.   So, Christ Jesus is alive in the spiritual world.

We cannot grasp the spiritual world, but we have our minds.   Even anybody who does not believe existence of God surely admits that he or she has a mind and can think.  But this ability to have mind and think anything must be part of the function of the spiritual world.  In other words, that we can think in our minds is a proof that we are part of the spiritual world and thus conversely the spiritual world, including Heaven and the hell, exists.

"nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net" - Hate Money and Satan



Tokyo Bay


Hate Money and Satan

Men would cheat others to get one or two dollars.

Men would bully others to get 10  or 20 dollars.

Men would intimidate others to get 100  or 200 dollars.

Men would betray others to get 1,000  or 2,000 dollars.

Men might commit a crime to get 10,000  or 20,000 dollars.

Men could violate and harm others to get 100,000 or  and 200,000 dollars.

Men would even do any foolish action to get 1 or 2 million dollars.

Men would even kill another to get 10 or 20 million dollars.

Men would even kill 10 people to get 100 or 200 million dollars.

Men would even kill 100 people to get 1 or 2 billion dollars.

That is why Christ Jesus said to hate money and love God.

"Who had his dwelling among the tombs" - Treasures in Heaven



Paddy Fields around Tokyo

Treasures in Heaven


Money and wealth are the most important thing for anybody next to his or her live.  So, it is worth checking the words of Christ Jesus on this matter.

Mat 6:19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
Mat 6:20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
Mat 6:21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

This teaching proves that ; there is Heaven; money and wealth are important for men; there are types of money and wealth that can be accumulated in Heaven; and men can go up to Heaven.

However, laying  up treasures in heaven is an important concept.  Men can accumulate their treasures in Heaven.  But how can they do it?

By giving up or abandoning money and wealth for God's sake, men can accumulate treasures in Heaven.   Or by loosing his money or wealth for the sake of love, justice, and holiness, men can accumulate treasures in Heaven.   Otherwise, by loving the poor or being kind and benevolent to the poor, men can accumulate money and wealth in Heave.

If a man or woman does a kindness to others, he or she must feel emotionally good, psychologically satisfied, and spiritually fulfilled.  It means that treasures are laid in Heaven.

If a man or woman gives up money and wealth for compassion, justice, love or holiness, he or she must feel emotionally good, psychologically satisfied, and spiritually fulfilled.  It means that treasures are laid in Heaven.

But if men get big money and wealth for their selves in this world, no treasures are laid in Heave.

And, if a poor man gives one dollar to the much poor, more treasures should be accumulated in Heaven than a rich who gives a million dollars to the poor while he possesses ten billion dollars.  Indeed, the more given, the more required.

"For he that hath, to him shall be given" - The Black Hole and God



Rural Zone around Tokyo

The Black Hole and God

It is true that there have been some people who believed that they actually saw God.

Abraham saw angels of God.  Jacob wrestled with an angel, the representative of God.  Moses saw at least a back shot of God.  And, Christ Jesus must have seen God as His Father.  In addition, Muhammad heard the voice of an angel of God.

Or who could see God in the Black Hole of the M87 galaxy?

At the beginning of this material universe, all the materials or substances, including all stars, planets, molecules, and atoms, were compressed in a very tiny space of, say, with the diameter of 10 to the negative 33rd power cm.  Therefor the space naturally started to expand in a explosive way.  And it has become the present size with the diameter of more than 13.8 billion light years.  In addition it is still expanding at an accelerated rate with 300 billion galaxies, each with 300 billion fixed stars or solar systems.

So at the beginning of this material universe, a tiny but super mighty black hole might have been created.  In this case, no explosive expansion of the original tiny space must not have happened, which means that Milky Way Galaxy, our solar system, and our earth should not have been created.  But as they actually exist now, the expansion must have started at a rate faster than the light speed.  There should not have time to form a black hole.

This is the first decisive moment and restrictive condition for this material universe to be created.  The present material universe might have turned to be a black hole the moment this universe emerged from the vacuum energy 13.8 billion years ago.  In this context, the light speed at which or more the space began to expand is faster and stronger than power of darkness leading to a black hole.

This universe was created by God, which we had better assume.  God must have been present at the moment of creation of the universe.  So, if we had been able to see through a black hole, we might be able to see a record of the shadow of God who had been supervising the creation of this universe.

Like the earth and other planets are circling around the sun, all the fixed stars (suns) in a galaxy must be circling around a huge black hole at its center as observed in the M87 galaxy.

So, if we had been able to see through a black hole, we might be able to see at least remnants of an angel of God who was in charge of supporting the creation of this material universe therein.

"neither was any thing kept secret" - What Made God Send His Son to the Human World



Tokyo


What Made God Send His Son to the Human World

Confucius was borne in China in 551 B.C.  Construction of the second temple in Jerusalem began around 537 B.C.   Socrates was born in Greek in 469 B.C.  The Buddha was born in India in 463 B.C.

These are main events about 500 years before Christ Jesus came to the human world.  It was these events that God had observed before He decided to send His Son Christ Jesus to the human world.

However, as it is assumed that God could see future of the mankind, He must have observed also the future of the mankind not only their past.

The Western Roman Empire collapsed in 476. In Arabia, Muhammad was born in about 570.  In China, the Sui dynasty was established after 300 years of turmoil in 581, and subsequently after 30 years, the Tang dynasty was built on Confucianism in 618 and prospered for the following 300 years.  In India, the Vardhana dynasty was established where a notable monk came from the Tang dynasty to study Buddhism and collect Buddhist scriptures.  In Japan, Buddhism was officially imported in 538.

God must have foreseen these future incidents before He sent Christ Jesus to the human world.

So then, what made God send His Son to the human world around AD 1 while He must have observed both the then past and future incidents?

For this purpose, we should see incidents in the 1st century BC and AD.
60 BC: Julius Caesar, Pompey the Great, and Marcus Crassus form the First Triumvirate

44 BC: Assassination of Julius Caesar on the Ides of March.

37 BC: Herod the Great becomes king of Judea.

27 BC: The Roman Senate votes Octavian the title of Augustus. Augustus eventually assumes all authority formerly held by the Roman senate becoming the first emperor.

4 BC: Judea annexed to the Roman province of Syria after the death of King Herod.

AD 43: Roman conquest of Britain begins. London is founded (although it could have existed centuries before this date).

AD 44: Death of Herod Agrippa.

AD 41 – 54: Buddhist monks in Sri Lanka first write down Buddha's teachings, creating the Pali canon.

AD 64: Great Fire of Rome, first Roman mass Persecution of Christians, earliest significant recognition of Christians in Rome.

AD 66 – 73: First Jewish-Roman War.

AD 70: destruction of Herod's Temple in Jerusalem by the Romans under Titus.

AD 79: Pompeii and Herculaneum destroyed by eruption of Mount Vesuvius.
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1st_century_BChttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1st_century)

There must be a critical incident that persuaded God to send His Son to the human world around AD 4.

However, for us who have been alive around 2000, it should look more meaningful that Abraham had left Ur in Mesopotamia 2000 years before the emergence of Christ Jesus, since we now live 2000 years after the emergence of Christ Jesus.  It seems more important for God to give significance to these periods over 2000 years. 

Conversely, every incident before and after the emergence of Christ Jesus must have been designed, planned, and generated by God to fit for the 2000-year period theory.

"Thou hast well said, I have no husband" - God for All the Mankind





Spring Around Tokyo


God for All the Mankind

It is common understanding that God is the only one and unique existence.  And all the mankind should deepen this understanding.

First of all, we have to admit that 2 and 2 is 4 for Judaists, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, and other believers as well as those who deny existence of the only one and unique God.  The laws of  mathematics are accepted by all the mankind.  So, someone who created the law of  mathematics should be admitted as God by everybody.

Secondly, every man knows differences between good and bad, between holy and evil, and between love and hatred.   So, people should admit that there is God who encourages good and love.

Thirdly, every man admits the law of cause and effect.  If you work hard, you can be rewarded.  So, for this material universe, which follows the physical laws, to be created, there must be certain force and intention or a plan behind the creation.  So, it is natural to think that God created this material universe with specific intention and a specific plan.

There are hundreds or thousands of laws and key constants of physics and other natural scientific fields (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scientific_law).  The material world is built on them.  From medical drugs to smart phones, every product functions and works subject to these laws and constants.  This material universe could not be generated by chance or in a random manner.  It must have been planned, designed, and created by God.

In addition, there have been so many tribes and communities, but there have been no tribes and communities where evil and wickedness are praised and encouraged although each tribe and community has often hated and attacked their enemies, denying causes and justice of their enemies.

So, it is not difficult to admit that there is God as the creator of the physical universe with omnipotence and as the ruler of spiritual world with unlimited love.  However, it is thought that God never eats and breathe.  God is not a living thing like a man.  Then how does God exist?  Or can a man exist as a pure spirit apart from biological conditions?

But what is the most important for men is that God can set, change, and create their fates and destinies.   For this belief, men sometimes pray to God for help.  God can save and rescue any man in  hardship.  No matter how many times this prayers fail, people never cease to appeal to God.  However, criteria God applies to people are different from human judgement.  God sometimes saves people not in a worldly manner but in a Heavenly manner.

What's more, there is Satan as God exists.  Nowadays, there are many people who don't believe both God and Satan.  But centuries ago, most of people believed God and evil spirits or Satan.  As society developed and science prevailed, most of people have come to stop thinking about God and Satan.  But this is the very situation Satan wishes.

It is strange that God created Satan for some reason.  To understand this reason must be the final challenge for the mankind in the field of religion.  Why does God who is almighty need Satan or allow existence of Satan to fulfill his purpose related to human beings?

Anyway, the mankind as one species must admit that they are under the one and only and unique God.  Every religion of the mankind must be directed to God if various religious forms such as Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism are allowed to exist.

"he would have given thee living water" - A Fear of Death Leading to God


Around the Office of the Prime Minister, Tokyo


A Fear of Death Leading to God

None is sure about what will happen to him or her after death.  However, Christ Jesus clearly stated that rich men went to the hell and and poor and pious men were allowed to enter Heaven.

Believing in Christ Jesus is to believe His words, so that true believers are not afraid of their death.

Centuries ago, there were many people who truly thought about Heaven and the hell.  But with advancement of science and technology, less and less people have come to think about Heaven and the hell as well as their death.

Modern social environments surrounded by high-tech goods, advanced hardware and software, games and images, various entertainments, demanding business activities, etc. have made people easily forget about their death and afterlife.

However, it is the situation that does good to Satan.  People whose minds are occupied by money making and the worldly things come to less think of the hell and Heaven and thus God.  Their minds would naturally go away from God.  It surely rejoices Satan.

Modern living surrounded by so many material things and goods makes people concentrate on living in this world and forget about their death and the hell and Heaven and thus God.

The gravest blasphemy is not accusing or criticizing God but forgetting and stopping thinking about God.  So, it is not bad for a man to be afraid of his death and wonder if he can enter Heaven, since he might come to ask God for mercy.

No matter how rich a man is, he has a reason to ask God for mercy, since anyone will die someday.  Being afraid of one's own death is good as it can be the first step to look for God.  A fear of death should lead people to God.

"Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God" - The End of this Material Civilization




Cherry Blossom Field Party Season around Tokyo

The End of this Material Civilization

What we can plainly see in the Bible is the fight between God and Satan.  The Gospels are the reports of the fight between Christ Jesus as the Son of God and Satan.

God expected human beings to respect God and follows His teaching.  But Satan interfered with this God wish by brainwashing human beings and indoctrinating human beings with evil ideas.  To clearly teach God's teaching and instructions, God sent his Son Christ Jesus to the human world.  But people brainwashed by Satan killed Christ Jesus.  So, Satan succeeded in defeating God temporarily, but Christianity prevailed despite the death of Christ Jesus on the cross.  Nonetheless, Satan has never given up its evil intention against God.  Satan has brainwashed many priests and other followers of Christina churches.  Satan has also partly succeeded by making human beings love money and wealth more than God.

This tells what world human beings still live in today.  Commercialism is one of representative tools of Satan.  Commercialism makes human beings want rich lives by showing, displaying, and presenting rich living through TV, publications, and the Internet.  Indeed, a man cannot love and serve both God and money at the same time.  Satan does not request human beings to love Satan, but Satan makes human beings love money and forget, ignore, and finally hate God.

Today's civilization is driven by human desire fostered by commercialism.  It is against the teaching of God, since it is money-driven.  The modern civilization is driven by human desire for wealth.  It is against the teaching of God.  So, today, people don't think of God but think of only their material success and happiness that can be achieved by money.

But as this civilization is against God, it will surely fail.  Human beings will see their material civilization fall someday, which will please Satan who loves to see human beings suffer.

We are surrounded by high-tech products and products realized by advanced science and technology, but they are generated by human desire for money and wealth but not by faith in God.  Therefore, ultimately this material civilization will fall and perish someday.

This material civilization might crumble before human beings occupy the solar system or the Milky Way galaxy.  And it will never prosper forever.

2000 years after Abraham, Christ Jesus appeared in the human world.  And 2000 years after Christ Jesus, we are now living.  It is no wonder that the end of this material civilization is near.

"he taught them many things by parables" - Eternal Life for Prayers and Pains


Tokyo

Eternal Life for Prayers and Pains

There are many people who pray to God when they want help from God who is believed to have ability to interfere with human fates and situations.

There are many people who think that God might hear them if they pray to God, asking Him for help and mercy.

But in most cases, they cannot see God immediately respond to their prayer and rescue them out of their plight.

It is very rare that people get help from God in a way they want.  But, in most cases, they sometimes find, after praying to God, that they have broken through difficult situations in a way they did not even dream of.  That is why it has never happened that everybody stops praying to God for help as it is in vain.

Put simply, God can give eternal life to believers after their death.  Compared with glory of this eternal life, any luck, fortune, and happiness in this world are nothing.  Any bad luck, misfortune, and predicaments in this world can be compensated by eternal life after their death, when people are allowed to enter Heaven and get eternal life.

And God will give eternal life to people who believe in God regardless of whether or not they ask for immediate God's response to such request for help in this world.

Any pains and suffering in this world of a man having faith in God can be made up for by God in Heaven.   That is why God sometimes or in most of cases looks indifferent with prayers and pains of believers.

This is a matter of faith, trust, and confidence in omnipotence of God and His love to us.

"He must increase" - God and Eternal Life




Cherry Blossom Field Party Season around Tokyo, Japan


God and Eternal Life

Once the mankind had no idea about how large this world is. 

Later, until the recent centuries,  the mankind still had no idea about how large this universe, including the Earth, the Sun, and the Milky Way Galaxy, is.  And, still they don't know how large the space outside this universe is.  And most of them don't even wonder how large the spiritual world, Heaven, and the hell are.  There seem to be only a few who wonder how big and large God is.

It could be an infinite hierarchy structure the mankind cannot comprehend that God presides over.  But was it generated by God?  How did God create the infinite hierarchy structure?   Or what was the state of the space before God created such a structure?  And how could God come to appear and exist?

Maybe first there was nothing.  And, then God appeared from nowhere to create the infinite hierarchy structure including the spiritual world, Heaven, the hell, and the outside and inside of the material universe.

However, as God is almighty and omnipotent, He is not under anything and any power.  And then, another form of God must be the original status of nothing.

The most difficult part for the mankind is that there is nothing that is superior to God.  Nothing is bigger and greater than God.  We cannot imagine what exists above or outside this realm of God. 

However, again, if God is infinite, can we be satisfied to see that the realm of God is defined and specified with finite ideas, concepts, and expressions?  If God rules infinite spaces, how did He come to control all?  Or how did He come to exist and control all the infinite and finite spaces?

What are all these spaces, including the material universe, the spiritual space, Heaven, the hell, etc.?  How did God come to exist and occupy them all?  Aren't there any worlds and spaces above this realm of God? 

Put simply, as long as we believe that we have the ability to understand God, we cannot comprehend the truth.  The mankind has no ability to grasp and understand God.  God must be beyond all the scope of our intelligence.  It is because the mankind are parts of this great realm of God.  We must be thankful if God accepts our souls in Heaven.

And it is still very benevolent that Christ Jesus declared that those who believed in God would get eternal life.

"Which was the son of Melchi, which was the son of Addi" - This Truth Called Love


Mt. Fuji, snow-capped, from around Tokyo, over the 100 km distance

This Truth Called Love

To understand or admit something that exists, you have to be alive and not dead.  Existence of anything is only meaningful for a living man but not for a dead man.

A living man means the function to recognize something that exists, and a dead man means the state without this function.

To understand and recognize oneself, one needs to be alive and should not be dead.

A living man means the function to understand and recognize oneself, and a dead man means the sate without this function.

A man exists as long as he lives, but a dead man does not exist.  The world exists for a man as long as he lives, for a dead man, the world does not exist and he himself does not exist.

In the case of God, we may assume that this world and universe exist, as long as God lives.  And as God never dies, this world and universe never cease to exist.  And all the things exist as God understands and recognizes them.

Consequently, we may think that everything exists as God thinks of it; every man exists as God thinks of him and her; and time exists as God thinks of time.

If God should stop functioning, this world, this universe, all the things in this world, and all the mankind should disappear, losing the basis of their existence.

Christ Jesus called this truth love.  To suggest this truth to men, He said that God loved every man and woman.  And Christ Jesus recommended that to strengthen this assurance of men's existence, men should love God with all their hearts and might.

God
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In monotheistic thought, God is conceived of as the supreme being, creator deity, and principal object of faith.[3] The conceptions of God, as described by theologians,[who?] commonly include the attributes of omniscience (all-knowing), omnipotence (all-powerful), omnipresence (all-present), and as having an eternal and necessary existence.
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/God)
The most important teaching by Christ Jesus is to love God as much as and more than one can with all of one's might, power, and ability from the bottom of one's heart.

The Bible also tells to know the God, although God is assumed to be inherently known by Jewish people and Muslims.

God is not something like an apple one can see, touch, or imagine.  God is not a mere object or a living thing.  So, the Gospels tell that God is spirit whom men have to revere with their own spirit. 

But more importantly, Christ Jesus called God "our father in Heaven" and also recommended men to call God Father.

Indeed, if there is somebody having super and extreme power and ability somewhere who created everything and is controlling the universe and the human world as well as spiritual world, but if that someone has nothing to do with human beings, what is good for us even if we know Him?

So, the most important teaching of Christ Jesus is that God is Father of the human beings in Heaven and the mankind have to love Him.

From the beginning, the mankind seems not yet to be clever enough to understand God and the whole structure of this world including the universe and the spiritual world.  Conversely, as with the progress and development of our material civilization, the mankind seems to lose more power in terms of spirituality and humanity.

Having said so, we night be allowed to discuss God as part of our efforts to love God with all of our might.

Peace Loving Countries

Peace is the most important next to justice, honor, and love for a nation.
For honor Abraham was expected to deliver, nations should fight against evil countries.
For justice Moses was encouraged to achieve, nations should fight against evil countries.
For love Christ Jesus loves, nations should fight against evil countries.

But peace should be respected more than other factors for nations.

"but have eternal life" - Christchurch Tragedy

Moon, Venus, and Jupiter aligned in Western Japan in January

Christchurch Tragedy


Early before the dawn of today I had a bad dream.

I woke up to later hear the news of the massacre in New Zealand, although the time lag between Japan and New Zealand is about 2 hours.

It seems that there is nothing I can do to help them concerned.  However, I just like to record the tragedy here.

It seems to be caused first by an influence of Satan, secondly by misunderstanding social, economic, and political situations, thirdly by racial prejudice, and lastly by religious confusion.

Put extremely, this human world is the battle field between God's angels and Satan or devils.  Any man-made disasters can be interpreted as having happened as part of this battle.  So, any incongruous tragedies can occur in this world.

And lastly, the most formidable enemies against humanity are from those who believe in a cult or practice any religion in a cult-like way.

Anyway, it seems that the most drastic battle over religion is the Jewish-Roman Wars around A.D. 100, where Roman troops destroyed the Temple of Jerusalem and drove Jewish people out of Palestine.

And then, through the most erroneous battles caused by the Crusades against Muslims over centuries around 1000, the most bloody battle was unilaterally launched by Nazis against Jewish people in the first half of the 20th century.

This agenda still remains in the 21st century deplorably through the 9/11 terror on the US in 2001 and the subsequent War on Terror by the US.

(In 2011, a big earthquake occurred in Christchurch, New Zealand, in February, and then about a month later a huge earthquake accompanied by great tsunamis occurred in North Pacific coasts of North East Japan, taking out about 20,000 lives and triggering the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear accident.)

"He that hath two coats" - Infinite God


Mt. Fuji (3,776 m), Japan

Infinite God


How this world was created is the natural question men can have.

In ancient days, men tended to think that this world and the universe were created by God or gods.  But who created the God or how was God created?

The Bible reads that God is what exists and the one who exited, exists, and will exist or existence itself:
Exo 3:14 And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

This universe is finite, no matter how larges it is.  But we can imagine that the space out of this universe is infinite.

What is finite must be ultimately part of something infinite.  If the God is finite, He must be part of something or somebody that is infinite.  However, God cannot be subject to anything or anybody.  In this context, God must be infinite.

So then, who or what can create anybody or anything infinite.  There night be a world of those who are all infinite, and God might be one member therein.  But then who or what crated the world of those who are all infinite?

Heaven and the spiritual world must be also infinite.  May the hell must be so.  That must be why human beings cannot fully comprehend God, the spiritual world, Heaven, and the hell.

But Christ Jesus encouraged us to call God our father, which gives a sense of safety to us.  If our father is infinite in His size and ability, He can fully and easily save us who are just finite.

"to offer a sacrifice" - The Core of the Teachings by Christ Jesus


Tokyo

The Core of the Teachings by Christ Jesus


The most revolutionary teaching by Christ Jesus is that a man can get eternal life if he or she believes in Christ Jesus and God.

And another revolutionary teaching is that men cannot love both God and money simultaneously.

Accordingly, only poor men who believe in God and Christ Jesus can be saved.

However, millions of teachings, theories and discussions have been made around Christ Jesus and His teaching for 2000 years.

But the most important thing for men is their death.  And the answer to this issue by Christ Jesus is on how men can get eternal life.  And the next important thing for men is how to get money.  And the answer to this issue by Christ Jesus is that they have to love God and hate money.

This is the core of the teachings by Christ Jesus.

Luk 2:24 And to offer a sacrifice according to that which is said in the law of the Lord, A pair of turtledoves, or two young pigeons.
Luk 2:25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him.
Luk 2:26 And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ.

"he went through the corn fields" - Christianity over Death in Europe


Tokyo


Christianity over Deaths in Europe

In the Mediterranean area of the Roman Empire, there lived 60 million people, of which 0.2 million people were rich.  Their average length of life was between 20 and 30.

It means that you could not find one rich man even among 100 Roman citizens, and most of Roman citizens died in their 20s.  In this situation, Christianity was introduced with the promise of acceptance into Heaven only if one believes.

In the Middle Ages of Europe, 20 births and 20 funerals occurred per year in a village with 100 households of residents having the average length of life between 25 and 30.   In this situation, Christianity diffused widely with the promise of acceptance into Heaven only if one believes.

However, the Black Death spread in Europe, killing 20 million people in Europe between 1347 and 1353.  One third of the European population were killed as Black Death victims.  Accordingly, Vatican's authority was derogated.

So, since the Roman Empire adopted Christianity for its state religion in 392, Christianity had been promoted for 1,000 years in Europe by the Vatican without serious obstacles and challenges.

Poor and unhappy Europeans believed in God of Christianity for 1000 years till they met  the Black Death in the 14th century.  But what they got after 1000-year belief in Christianity was the black plague that killed one third of the Europeans.  So, did they all abandon the faith in God of Christianity?  No, they didn't.  But the authority of the Vatican started to decline, and the religious transformation started in the early 16th century, almost 250 years after the Black Death.

All these incidents show how deeply Christianity came to be rooted in Europe in 1000 years after the Roman Empire adopted Christianity for its state religion.  Poor Europeans came to accept Christianity in these 1000 years.  And when they encountered a further tragedy of the Black Death, they did not abandon the faith although they came to criticize the religious body of the Vatican but not Christianity itself.

Accordingly, it is reasonable to regard Christianity as a true religion proven by the history.  And the Gospel reads:
Joh 11:25 Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:

So, the essence of Christianity should be that if one believes in Christ Jesus, he or she will live if he or she is dead.

Christianity spread over many and many deaths in Europe.
