Toyota Motor Corporation, commonly known as Toyota, is a multinational corporation headquartered in Japan and is currently the world's largest carmaker.
Toyota is also one of the largest companies to push the hybrid vehicles in the market and the first to commercialize such vehicles, an example being the Toyota Prius, their innovative model which combine an internal combustion engine with electric motor. Toyota eventually began providing this option on the main smaller cars such as Camry and later with the Lexus divisions, producing some hybrid luxury vehicles. It labeled such technology in Toyota cars as "Hybrid Synergy Drive" and in Lexus versions as "Lexus Hybrid Drive."
The Prius has become the top selling hybrid car in America, and Toyota, as a brand, now has three hybrid vehicles in its lineup: the Prius, Highlander, and Camry.
During the recent embarrassment for the world's largest carmaker which was triggered by complaints about their faulty accelerator and braking system. The fault, which causes the car to accelerate, has also proved deadly, leading to the death of an American family whose luxury Lexus vehicle allegedly sped out of control. The brake problem also affects the petrol-electric Priuses that were sold in the US and Japan. Drivers there have complained of a short delay before the brakes kick in.
In respond to these complaints, Toyota “found fault” with the accelerator pedals and braking system and responded with recall exercise to fix the accelerator pedals and brake system. Approximately, Toyota announced recalls of 8 million cars around the world because of the sticky accelerator pedals and braking system…
If you own one of these cars, there are faults hidden in those two pedals under your feet… and is life threatening. I don’t think a person with a sound mind would reject this recall exercise.
If you own such a car, will you refuse to respond to the manufacturer’s recall exercise…?
Apostle Paul, one of the greatest “agent” of the Creator of this universal, reminded us the believers, times over times in his different epistles that the ministry that is engraved in letter on stone is a ministry of death. The Creator of this universal Himself had found fault with this weak and useless covenant, for the law made nothing perfect. He Himself had made an open statement through His prophets on why he had found fault with this old covenant….
Nevertheless, if the first covenant with God had been all right, there would not have been any need for another one. But the Lord found fault with it and said,
"I tell you the time will come, when I will make a new agreement with the people of Israel and the people of Judah. It won't be like the agreement that I made with their ancestors, when I took them by the hand and led them out of Egypt. They broke their agreement with me, and I stopped caring about them! "But now I tell the people of Israel this is my new agreement: `The time will come when I, the Lord, will write my laws on their minds and hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. Not one of them will have to teach another to know me, their Lord.' "All of them will know me, no matter who they are. I will treat them with kindness, even though they are wicked. I will forget their sins."
When the Lord talks about a new covenant, he means that the first one is out of date. And anything that is old, outdated and useless had disappeared.
The recent recall exercise by Toyota is to replace the sticky accelerator pedals and to rectify the braking system. Two thousand years ago, the Creator of this universal, found fault with this weak and useless regulations that He made with the Israel people. Through His one and only Begotten Son, and at the cross, He implemented the recall exercise to reconcile this sinful world with Himself.
Through that recall exercise, the Creator of this universal had written His laws, the law of the Spirit of life, on our minds and our hearts. He had become our God, and we had become His people. Not one of us will have to teach one another to know Him, our Lord. All of us will know Him, no matter who we are. He treats us with lovingkindness, even though we are wicked, for He remembers our sins no more!
Have you responded to His recall exercise… or are you still holding on to the law of sin and death?
