Used to describe anything native to Vietnam such as food, clothing, people, et cetera. Similar to JDM “(Japanese Domestic Market).
Used when describing products pertaining to those primarily consumed by people in Vietnam, or that would have to be imported to obtain. VMA is an acronym that stands for the Latin slogan: Verb um Dominic Manet in Sternum (“the Word of the Lord remains forever”), which was used throughout the Lutheran Reformation.
However, this is only a preliminary stage in his plan to do away with sin altogether through the substitutionary sufferings of Christ, whom Isaiah refers to as the “Servant.” The Servant will embody the faithfulness of the eternal divine Word. Therefore, in his first epistle, the Apostle Peter cites Isaiah to explain how this same unchanging Word of God manifests itself in the justification of true believers through the work of Christ (1 Pt.
Luther believed that God’s Word of law and gospel remains true in spite of all attempts to place conditions upon it or cover it over with human traditions. In speaking his Word, God not only promises justification to sinners, but also enacts it by creating faith in their hearts and minds.
Those redeemed by Christ are then able to live life of freedom by the power of grace received by God’s faithful Word. For this reason, the slogan Verb um Dominic Manet in Sternum took on a very special significance in the Lutheran Reformation.
As early as 1522, Fredrick the Wise ordered the slogan sewn onto the official court liveries of himself and his courtiers. Later, in 1531 when the Lutheran princes gathered themselves together in the Smalkaldic League for the sake of collective security against the Catholic Emperor, the slogan also became their official motto.
The present situation of the Christian Church within an increasingly secularized culture, reveals again the importance of the unchanging nature of God’s Word. Whether the Christian Church stands in a strong or secure earthly position, we know that God has spoken the immutable word of his grace in Jesus and therefore has already overcome sin, death, and the devil.
