Manoa Ali'i (Royal Vast)

O’ahu    Waikiki & Honolulu Sight

This 2005 work was awarded the "Guru Award" at "Photoshop World In Las Vegas, 2006" located at the land mark of the Hawaii chain, (Waikiki beach with ancient Diamond Head, more than 100 years ago), titled "Manoa Ali'i",which means "Royal Vast" (chiefs lived here).

I decided to re-construct this work on the computer again, adding and retouching a few changes, as "Manoa Ali'i 2011" for sharing the veracity which we've known through the disaster in March 11, 2011, with all the people in this planet who feel sympathy.

The ancient view of Waikiki beach with Hawaiian landmark Diamond Head, there's a endless power and beauty to the next to come after deserter 3.11.

First, Read "James chapter 4 verse 13-17" in an undertone again , and pour out your heart before Him, and find out an accurate knowledge more and more about God, please.

Come, now, you who say: "Today or tomorrow we will journey to this city and will spend a year there, and we will engage in business and make profits," whereas you do not know what your life will be tomorrow.

For you are a mist appearing for a little while and then disappearing.

Instead, you ought to say: "If God wills, we shall live and also do this or that."

But now you take pride in your self-assuming brags. All such taking of pride is wicked.

Therefore, if one knows how to do what is right and yet does not do it, it is a sin for him.

On the gathering island O'ahu again in the Spring '05, I visited the Bishop museum at Honolulu, to learn the scientific and geographical knowledge of this Waikiki area in Hawaiian history.

Before the construction of the Ala Wai Canal between 1921 and 1924, Waikiki was just known as duck ponds.

That was a very vast swamp belt as a mouth of three streams, Moleka, Manoa and Palolo, flowing down from Ko'olau Range.

It is known in Hawaiian meaning of Waikiki, "blow out the water, ponds, marshes," as can be also sympathize.

These streams that had flowed all the way to the beach were now intercepted by the new waterway Ala Wai Canal, and that meant the end of the swamps and ponds that had kept most of the district in agricultural use.

The biggest stream of them, Manoa, meaning "VAST" in their local language.

"Manoa Ali'i" is the land division on the Eva side of great Ko'olau Range and Manoa valley, with means, "Royal Vast" (chiefs lived here).

"Dwelling dominion vast land of God", the beach in old time, was still a great place to swim, and was hardly a must-seen destination.

However, in the 1910s, U.S. forces attempted to develop this rough desert wetland , which was called 'duck ponds'. They bought all of this area for the first line of defense of the United States in Asia, for planning to create a large turret base.

Between 1921 and 1924, the construction period of the

Alawai Canal, was completed in conjunction with the river, which was flowing in disorder, grouped into a single, dry land, such as the completion of the current Waikiki. Until the 1950s, it continued to be used as a frontline base in the Pacific Ocean with more American cannons.

But times have changed significantly in just 50 years, which accompanied the era of nuclear long-range ballistic missile technology.

When I'm standing on a gathering beach Waikiki now, I can't stop to imagine the ancient days of this area, in the blessed seventh day that God made earth and heaven. (Genesis 1:28)

Currently there is a coexistence of both the control of the U.S. military and tourism industry, once the ruling dynasty and it was also in Hawaii, as well, dominated found in Hawaiian legends specific also there may have been right.

They all appear thru out the times in history,where as human dominion once built up, will also decline.

Like a countless cloud rolling by without memories over only a small area of Oahu, it looks like passages over the supremacy of prosperity, and decline in the history of human.

However, the purpose of this work should have, if perspective should regain our innocence back in history, to cover all of our memories and in the future, with unlimited power common to all of this star we can once again find the existence of a controlling interest of beauty.

It is the great area, they call the landmark of Hawaii, Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head ancient, here is a landmark worthy of Hawaii, an area in my eyes that shows the reality of the eternal existence of control.

And we have brought to ruin the earth, appearing between such little control as the false cloud or fog is diminishing, obtaining admit it is not even an excuse.

When we meditate this scene, we can see clearly the God's purpose for the earth and we should be known a literal earth to be permanent where had been made for perfect humans, the paradise, never gone. (Psalm 104:5 and 72:7, Ecclesiastes 1:4)

So, the governments, the authorities, the world rulers of this darkness, ruining the earth, like a mist appearing for a little while and then disappearing, they are perceived by the things made, and they inexcusable.

Finally, read it together "Romans chapter 1 bars 18 to 23".

For God's wrath is being revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who are suppressing the truth in an unrighteous way, because what may be known about God is manifest among them, for God made it manifest to them.

For his invisible [qualities] are clearly seen from the world's creation onward, because they are perceived by the things made, even his eternal power and Godship, so that they are inexcusable; because, although they knew God, they did not glorify him as God nor did they thank him, but they became empty-headed in their reasonings and their unintelligent heart became darkened.

Although asserting they were wise, they became foolish and turned the glory of the incorruptible God into something like the image of corruptible man and of birds and four-footed creatures and creeping things.

For humans, it is easier for them to destroy something, even not easier to manage the environment to be beautiful, let alone, and nothing can be produced.

There is no doubt, representative example No.1, that is the nuclear industry is built upon structure of the technology of nuclear physics.

It was a great discovery of human, that is a process of destruction using just nuclei spontaneously change itself by radioactive decay.

But, we can not go back and can not recover it, over 24,000 years.

Being able to restore once again what was destroyed, having the power to control the forces of nature, only true God can do.

Clouds and fog are gone, and will be forgotten soon.

However, only the true creator, He can store securely the archetype of the environment in accordance to the original purpose of the environment before being destroyed, and He has a real sovereignty with the power to be restored whenever he wants it to be.

See! Matthew chapter 8 bars 23 to 27.

And when he got aboard a boat, his disciples followed him.

Now, look! a great agitation arose in the sea, so that the boat was being covered by the waves; he, however, was sleeping.

And they came and woke him up, saying: "Lord, save us, we are about to perish!"

But he said to them: "Why are you fainthearted, you with little faith?"

Then, getting up, he rebuked the winds and the sea, and a great calm set in.

So the men became amazed and said: "What sort of person is this, that even the winds and the sea obey him?"

After the disaster, we had been given a chance to perceive the "natural affection" in the family, school, workplace and communities again which had been loosing in these years.

We had been also learned that we should acknowledge humbly our reasonable position given to the creature called human.

Also, it is the great time to know, as well as we have known the existence of true creator God, there is "large land dwelling dominion of God" in the whole of this beautiful planet.

Thus, every time we face a major test happened in these days, we have learned those things in a visible form, and we have been given a big motivation to act in practice.

Therefore, we had just now learned again that we should grow up and maintain this great creatures on this planet more and more beautiful, also should be learned that job is the main purpose of our existence as human nature.

Therefore, if one knows how to do what is right and yet does not do it, it is a sin for him. (James 4:17)
