  • 1. ULDAH MINISTRY LETTER TO THE BROTHERS AND SISTERS IN CHRIST 【CREATOR’S VOICE AND ARM】 6 Seek the LORD while he may be found; call on him while he is near. 7 Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts. Let them turn to the LORD, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon. 8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. 9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. 10 As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, 11 so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it. ISAIAH 55:6-11. 18 For this is what the LORD says— he who created the heavens, he is God; he who fashioned and made the earth, he founded it; he did not create it to be empty, but formed it to be inhabited— he says: “I am the LORD, and there is no other. 19 I have not spoken in secret, from somewhere in a land of darkness; I have not said to Jacob’s descendants, ‘Seek me in vain.’ I, the LORD, speak the truth; I declare what is right…22 “Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God, and there is no other. 23 By myself I have sworn, my mouth has uttered in all integrity a word that will not be revoked: Before me every knee will bow; by me every tongue will swear. 24 They will say of me, ‘In the LORD alone are deliverance and strength.’” All who have raged against him will come to him and be put to shame. 25 But all the descendants of Israel will find deliverance in the LORD and will make their boast in him. ISAIAH 45:18-19, :22-25. 平成24年 5月 月報 フルダ・ミニストリー ー主に在る とこしえの集いー MAY 2012 NO 199 Eternal Fellowship News Bulletin We believe in one GOD, in three persons; FATHER, SON and HOLY SPIRIT.

  • 2. 2 In mid-April 2012, some very disturbing news regarding the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster in Japan caused by the massive earthquakes and tsunami of last March have been circulated. The report includes a revelation of plans to evacuate forty million Japanese people from the tsunami afflicted eastern cities and even from Tokyo to the Kuril Islands (千島列島), which were captured by the Soviet Union, the present Russia in the wake of World WarⅡ. On 11th March 2011, a magnitude 9.0 earthquake hit east of the Oshika Peninsula of Tōhoku, Japan in the north-western Pacific Ocean and lasted approximately six minutes. This great East Japan Earthquake caused a gigantic tsunami which in turn caused a series of severe problems on the Fukushima Daiichi(Ⅰ) Nuclear Power Plant; equipment failures, nuclear meltdowns and releases of radioactive materials. This has now been established as the largest nuclear disaster since the Chernobyl disaster of 1986 in USSR. Over the last year the threat of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear disaster and the possibility of it developing into a global catastrophe have caused much concern and scientists have confirmed that a wave of highly radioactive waste is headed for the US west coast. This nuclear disaster now appears NOT to be a regional problem but a global threat, and the people of the world are warned never to consider building another nuclear plant ever again and to take an immediate action of suspending any new nuclear power plants worldwide. The following news has not yet reached ordinary Japanese people although an article about further nuclear risks and the possibility of the worst case that might force evacuations of residents in Tokyo was found in a leading Japanese newspaper, Mainichi Japan, written in English. The following two articles are first an excerpt from “Mainichi Japan” on 2nd April, and the second from “The European Union Times” on 15th April ’12. ‘The government continues to take regressive steps in spite of the torrent of criticism it has received and the lessons that should have been learned since the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami triggered a nuclear disaster…… One of the biggest issues that we face is the possibility that the spent nuclear fuel pool of the No. 4 reactor at the stricken Fukushima No. 1 Nuclear Power Plant will collapse. This is something that experts from both within and outside Japan have pointed out since the massive quake struck. TEPCO, (Tokyo Electric Power Co.) meanwhile, says that the situation is under control. However, not only independent experts, but also sources within the government say that it's a grave concern. The storage pool in the No. 4 reactor building has a total of 1,535 fuel rods, or 460 tons of nuclear fuel, in it. The 7-story building itself has suffered great damage, with the storage pool barely intact on the building's third and fourth floors. The roof has been blown away. If the storage pool breaks and runs dry, the nuclear fuel inside will overheat and explode, causing a massive amount of radioactive substances to spread over a wide area. Both the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) and French nuclear energy company Areva have warned about this risk. A report released in February by the Independent Investigation Commission on the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Accident stated that the storage pool of the plant's No. 4 reactor has clearly been shown to be "the weakest link" in the parallel, chain- reaction crises of the nuclear disaster. The worse-case scenario drawn up by the government includes not only the collapse of the No. 4 reactor pool, but the disintegration of spent fuel rods from all the plant's other reactors. If this were to happen, residents in the Tokyo metropolitan area would be forced to evacuate……
  • 3. 3 Promotion of nuclear power is a national policy, and yet……Earthquakes in the neighborhood of level-5 on the seismic intensity scale continue to occur even now in the Tohoku and Kanto regions. We cannot accept the absurd condescension of those who fear the worse-case scenario, labeling them as "overreacting." We have no time to humor the senseless thinking that instead, those who downplay the risks for the sake of economic growth are "realistic."’ (Mainichi Japan) ‘A new report circulating in the Kremlin today prepared by the Foreign Ministry on the planned re- opening of talks with Japan over the disputed Kuril Islands during the next fortnight states that Russian diplomats were “stunned” after being told by their Japanese counterparts that upwards of 40 million of their peoples were in “extreme danger” of life threatening radiation poisoning and could very well likely be faced with forced evacuations away from their countries eastern most located cities… including the world’s largest one, Tokyo. The Kuril Islands are located in Russia’s Sakhalin Oblast region and stretch approximately 1,300 km (810 miles) northeast from Hokkaidō, Japan, to Kamchatka, Russia, separating the Sea of Okhotsk from the North Pacific Ocean. There are 56 islands and many more minor rocks. It consists of Greater Kuril Ridge and Lesser Kuril Ridge, all of which were captured by Soviet Forces in the closing days of World War II from the Japanese. The “extreme danger” facing tens of millions of the Japanese peoples is the result of the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Disaster that was a series of equipment failures, nuclear meltdowns, and releases of radioactive materials at the Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant, following the Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami on 11 March 2011. According to this report, Japanese diplomats have signaled to their Russian counterparts that the returning of the Kuril Islands to Japan is “critical” as they have no other place to resettle so many people that would, in essence, become the largest migration of human beings since the 1930’s when Soviet leader Stalin forced tens of millions to resettle Russia’s far eastern regions. Important to note, this report continues, are that Japanese diplomats told their Russian counterparts that they were, also, “seriously considering” an offer by China to relocate tens of millions of their citizens to the Chinese mainland to inhabit what are called the “ghost cities,” built for reasons still unknown and described, in part, by London’s Daily Mail News Service in their 18 December 2010 article titled: “The Ghost Towns Of China: Amazing Satellite Images Show Cities Meant To Be Home To Millions Lying Deserted” that says: “These amazing satellite images show sprawling cities built in remote parts of China that have been left completely abandoned, sometimes years after their construction. Elaborate public buildings and open spaces are completely unused, with the exception of a few government vehicles near communist authority offices. Some estimates put the number of empty homes at as many as 64 million, with up to 20 new cities being built every year in the country’s vast swathes of free land.” Foreign Ministry experts in this report note that should Japan accept China’s offer, the combined power of these two Asian peoples would make them the largest super-power in human history with an economy larger than that of the United States and European Union combined and able to field a combined military force of over 200 million. To how dire the situation is in Japan was recently articulated by Japanese diplomat Akio Matsumura who warned that the disaster at the Fukushima nuclear plant may ultimately turn into an event capable of extinguishing all life on Earth……Japan’s former ambassador to Switzerland, Mitsuhei Murata……warned that “if the crippled building of reactor unit 4 – with 1,535 fuel rods in the spent fuel pool 100 feet (30 meters) above the ground – collapses, not only will it cause a shutdown of all six reactors but will also affect the common spent fuel pool containing 6,375 fuel rods, located some 50 meters from reactor 4,” writes Matsumura. In both cases the radioactive rods are not protected by a containment vessel; dangerously, they are open to the air. This would certainly cause a global catastrophe like we have never before experienced. He stressed that the responsibility of Japan to the rest of the world is immeasurable. Such a catastrophe would affect us all for centuries. Ambassador Murata informed us that the total numbers of the spent fuel
  • 4. 4 rods at the Fukushima Daiichi site excluding the rods in the pressure vessel is 11,421.” Disturbingly, the desperate situation facing Japan is, also, facing the United States as Russian military observers overflying the US this week as part of the Open Skies Treaty are reporting “unprecedented” amounts of radiation in the Western regions of that country, a finding that was further confirmed by scientists with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute who have confirmed that a wave of highly radioactive waste is headed directly for the US west coast. Important to note is that this new wave of Fukushima radiation headed towards the US is in addition to earlier radiation events that American scientists are now blaming for radioactive particles from Japan being detected in California kelp. Though the news of this ongoing global catastrophe is still being heavily censored in the US, the same cannot be said about Japan, and as recently reported by the leading Japanese newspaper The Mainichi Daily News that reports: “quotes an excerpt from the passage (Mainichi Japan) written above”. Even though this crisis in Japan has been described as “a nuclear war without a war” and the US Military is being reported is now stocking up on massive amounts of anti-radiation pills in preparation for nuclear fallout, there remains no evidence at all the ordinary peoples are being warned about this danger in any way whatsoever.’ (The European Union Times) An insider would know that there are some things that the mainstream media tends to ignore, intentionally or not. The article above is an example. Recently, more often than not, we hear reports of earth shattering events and phenomena through alternative sources such as internet websites and YouTube. Through such means, considerable amount of information discloses some strange things going on globally, some of which might be caused by man and others which are obviously of natural cause. The present crisis in Japan, described as “a nuclear war without a war” in the above article, was originally triggered by a natural disaster that nobody could prevent, i.e., by God’s hand. Japan is the only country which has been exposed to radiation twice, first, by atom-bombings during World WarⅡ and this time, from the nuclear power plants and the possibility of an unprecedented global catastrophe of worldwide radiation contamination continues to loom over Japan. As to whether or not the next earthquake in Japan directly hits the area of the already badly damaged nuclear plants so as to cause the final blow on them is unpredictable, so, we continue to be in the dark. What is the Lord speaking to us through these disasters? Does the Lord make Japan accountable for the fact that she is the third largest country next to US and France of possessing 54 nuclear plants, despite the knowledge of firsthand misery and suffering from atomic bombing? It seems to be apparent for Japanese people, the majority of who are atheists and who have so far lived without God, that the Lord’s final approach into His salvation is impending. Since the large earthquake last March, Japan has experienced abnormally hot and long summer, persistent lingering furious typhoons in various regions, three times heavier snowfall in northern Japan and the recent typhoon-like sudden, slow-moving spring rainstorm, which marked powerful winds at 140km/h and causing injuries to almost a hundred people across seventeen prefectures. This was the strongest storm to hit Tokyo since 1959. Likewise, the abnormal weather is a worldwide phenomenon. The earth appears to have become increasingly unstable and we have become acutely aware of our utter helplessness toward nature. This spring’s photos of beautifully blossomed cherry tree lined roads and uninhabited towns of the restricted areas of Fukushima, are quiet witnesses of God’s lovely care for His creation despite the looming disaster as described above. Our Creator who alone can control nature, using it, will cause us to hear His majestic, stern voice and to see His powerful, inescapable arm coming down with consuming fire to waken us up into His presence and truth. The only way left for our survival is to return to our Creator, the only God through Jesus Christ, through understanding of His Word and repentance of our sin.
