The Kingdom is Coming

Genesis 45: 17

17Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Tell your brothers, ‘Do this: Load your animals and return to the land of Canaan, 18and bring your father and your families back to me.

Ezekiel 21

1The word of the Lord came to me: 2“Son of man, set your face against Jerusalem and preach against the sanctuary. Prophesy against the land of Israel 3and say to her: ‘This is what the Lord says: I am against you. I will draw my sword from its sheath and cut off from you both the righteous and the wicked. 4Because I am going to cut off the righteous and the wicked, my sword will be unsheathed against everyone from south to north. 5Then all people will know that I the Lord have drawn my sword from its sheath; it will not return again.’

Isaiah 17

10You have forgotten God your Savior;

you have not remembered the Rock, your fortress.

Therefore, though you set out the finest plants

and plant imported vines,

11though on the day you set them out, you make them grow,

and on the morning when you plant them, you bring them to bud,

yet the harvest will be as nothing

in the day of disease and incurable pain.

Let Us Establish the Glorious Original Homeland

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
October 6, 1957
Chung Pa Dong Church
Seoul, Korea

1 Thessalonians 5: 1-11

Today many believers are saying that now is “the last days.” There are the two camps of democracy and communism today. One of them represents the morning and the other represents the evening. There is something that blocks these two camps in the middle. You have to take on the mission to break this down.

It has become a confused world in the last days when everything in the world is stirred up in confusion. The center cannot be firmly secured and the direction cannot be determined. You have to realize that the responsibility to clear all this lies not with God, nor with nature. It lies with none other than us.

Because God gave people the responsibility to bring the comprehensive ideology of unification to pass, they have been developing the natural sciences, which research nature, into the form of one unified science. Through religion, they have been bringing together the world of the mind. The development of science today, in other words, the modern civilization centering on science, has been fulfilling the unified external ideology. This has reached the sphere of a unified ideology on the level of the world. After that, in the internal dimension, you must complete the mission of building the internal world in which humanity can become one through the religion which reveals, the mind or the original nature and character of human beings.

Although religion and science divided in the second half of the sixteenth century, in the last days today, we are crossing over to the state of union when we can again reach the one purpose. Hence, science has taken up the unified form first. The reason for this is that when Adam was created as a complete human being, his body was created first. After that the spirit of life was breathed into him. This is the principle of creation. Today religion and science are in a position of confrontation. However, this is not the basic principle. In the last days, in the same way that God created Adam, the phenomena of history will also come together in this way.

The external civilization today, the twentieth century civilization, has been expressed through words and written letters. In the united ideal world that God hopes for, the center which is reciprocal to the civilization of the heart must be determined after completing the form of the ideology of God through the words. Otherwise, there is no way to bring them together into the one world.

How will they be united? Even if there is some unified ideology that can unite the external and internal civilizations, they will not be brought together in an orderly manner. There will be forces of darkness which obstruct that task. Thus, we must first pass through a course of conflict to shatter them. This is the reason why today two Last Days doctrines are taking responsibility for one field. In other words, one is in charge of the internal aspect of God, and the other is symbolically responsible for the external aspect of God.

If the side that replaces the center of the mind is democracy, then this democratic territory must be able to cause the communist territory to automatically champion the one will and move toward the one purpose. If the time when this is done does not come, the heavenly principles will never move.

When we examine this, we can see that not only in the field of the natural sciences today, but also in the religious field, we have come to the point where we cannot move forward any more. At this time, when neither can interfere with the other, we find that

there must appear someone new who can remove obstructions and take responsibility for the people if they do not listen to the commands. You have to understand this.

What kind of person will come to possess the glory of the new homeland? We must be able to fulfill the leading and dominant role which can unite our body centering on the mind and bring the environment into oneness.

In order to construct the glorious new homeland, our minds and bodies must become one. Centering on us, all of humanity must become one. At the same time, we must become one with all the laws of the operations of Heaven and earth. Moreover, we must become one with the heavenly principles with which the Creator has been carrying on the will. Otherwise, there is no way that the glory of God can manifest itself on this earth or in the world of creation. You have to understand that if the glory of God is not manifested, we human beings cannot even dream about the new nation of glory.

When you think about what kind of historical course humanity has been traveling through in order to construct this new nation of glory, you will discover that they have passed through a ceaseless history of conflict for a long time.

Centering on ourselves, we have to become one with all the laws of the operation of nature below. Above, we have to adjust to the laws of Heaven. Thus, we fallen ones must bear the responsibility to bring the environment into oneness centering on our minds and bodies.

In other words, when you secure the victorious accomplishments that can represent the whole of the human principles, this will also represent the heavenly principles to stand as the center connected to the way. You must be able to step forward on behalf of all the things of humanistic society and be in motion in synchronization with all the laws of natural operations. This must be achieved.

Richard:  The “laws of heaven” on a political level are expressed in the Cheon Il Guk Constitiution:

Let Us Become the Brides Who Reclaim What Was Lost to Jesus

Sun Myung Moon
October 4, 1957
Chung Pa Dong Church
Seoul, Korea

When the returning Lord appears amid the glory of God, what must you do? If you can meet the returning Lord, that joy must not be limited to you. It must represent eternity or it must be manifested as the joy which represents the unlimited ideology of the Kingdom of Heaven. In other words, even if you momentarily feel that you are not going to find satisfaction in it, you are to go one step further to feel the joy in which you can experience the eternal bliss of having triumphed over Satan, as well as the eternal love of God. Moreover, even when you are feeling the grace, you must feel the grace that is beyond our imagination in the same way Jesus felt it.

Through what kind of process was Jesus able to feel that kind of grace? It was because Jesus severed himself from all things in his life and worried only about the will of God. Moreover, why was Jesus able to behold the glory of resurrection? Jesus was able to live for the sake of God without any change, even when the glory of Heaven and earth, the loyalty of Heaven and earth, and the ideology that no one on earth possessed were all cut off. On account of this, Jesus entered the realm of the direct glory of God and stood in the position where he could forge bonds with human beings on earth.

What then is the joy you feel today? It is surely not for the sake of yourself. This joy is the grace that is instilled into you to give you the strength to fight against the forces of Satan on the earth. For this reason, being grateful to the Father who has given you joy, you have to have the determination to win the battle with Satan in order to offer the song of bliss for having removed the grief of the 6,000 years implanted deep in this earth until now. You must have the determination to rejoice after you have become eternally one with the Father.

Accordingly, this blessing is not the grace that will guide you forever, and it is not only for your sake. This grace is meant to help you fight with and subjugate Satan. Therefore, with the grace you have received, you must not create some conditions of comfort and peace for yourself. Instead, you should begin to liquidate all sins and powers of Satan on this earth. When you can emerge as the victorious children who have completed God’s purpose of creation on this earth and when you emerge as the ones who have fulfilled all the conditions, it will be to no avail, no matter how much Satan struggles. Moreover, you have to clearly understand that if there is someone who can emerge like this, he will be free no matter where he goes. In every footprint he leaves behind, there will be traces of victory.

Have you felt or realized something after listening to these words today? Have you discovered something? Have you learned something after joining the Unification Church? If these are the words of truth, you must not understand them only in your mind. You must understand them in your mind and, at the same time, understand them in your bosom. You must understand through your mind and your body.

When you comprehend the words in your head, your bosom, your body and your mind, you will have to move toward the fulfillment of the purpose of those words. You will have to fight with Satan. Moreover, you will not be able to curse the Father with your mouth and you will not be able to change your mind and be in a position of betraying Heaven.

The Pioneer of the New Heaven and Earth Who Completes His Responsibility and Marches on until the End

Furthermore, when you understand the words, through your body and mind, you will feel that countless arrows of Satan are rushing toward you from your surroundings. The more you feel that, the more you will have no choice but to unite with the people who are in the same position as you.

Having done this, you must consider the situation of others as your own situation, the grief and grudges of others as your own grief and grudges. That way you can form the living environment of oneness in which people can rely on each other, help each other and begin to build the new Heaven and earth. You have to understand that this kind of person is the pioneer of the new Heaven and earth.

You have to have the mind-set to manifest the grace you have received through your daily life in the practical field and that now you will ward off and overcome any arrows and false charges of Satan. Moreover, when you develop this kind of mind-set, no matter where you go, no matter whom you are dealing with, and even if you are in a lonely position, the heavenly soldiers and angels will always protect your life. Because Jesus had this kind of mind-set, the many thousands of believers in Heaven protected and supported him. If Jesus had not had this mind-set, even he would not have been able to carry on his works and to step forward before the will of the heavenly soldiers, the angels and the Father.

Until today, you have failed to possess this kind of mind-set to create an environment on this earth in which you can live intoxicated in the glorious grace of Heaven. For this reason, until now, God and the angels have been in the background helping humans on the earth, inducing them to move toward this glorious blessing. God has been living in sorrow. Because Jesus possessed this sorrowful heart of God, he tried to create a relationship between humans on the earth and the eternal ideology, based on the conditions of the new laws of the heavenly principles. Yet because of the faithlessness of the people at that time, he died on the cross in bitterness and anguish, unable to realize that will.

What kind of environment then are you in today, you who have searched for this Jesus of the sorrowful death? Even today, the same kind of phenomena, as the betrayal of Jesus’ words and the rejection of Jesus’ works seen in his time, are taking place. In other words, today you are also walking the path that others say is wrong, while being driven away and rejected by all people. Thus, you must cast away the sorrow of being rejected like this and, at any cost, you must make the effort to set the conditions of victory that will bring joy to Heaven and earth. If our gathering is for the sake of fulfilling this kind of will, all of us must become one in body and mind to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

Although you are suffering the grief of being rejected, forsaken and the sorrow of being abandoned by your former church, you must step over this kind of sadness according to the principles of restoration through indemnity. In other words, the members of the Unification Church must not stop halfway at feeling the heart and will and no longer feel the grief. Instead, you must walk the path that you must travel and cut off the paths that you must cut off. Furthermore, you must be able to participate in the Father’s glory of resurrection.

If you represent the will that Jesus tried to realize on the earth and set the condition of having completed all of the responsibility for the sake of history and the universe, then Satan, who caused the fall of the human ancestors Adam and Eve, will naturally disappear from this earth. Thus, you must keep in mind that when human beings step over that hill of conflict with Satan on the earth, God will always be with them. You should understand that Jesus dwells inside the realm of the ideology of bride and bridegroom, in the central position representing the world. Satan cannot make accusations about this.

When you emerge as the hero who, acting on behalf of the internal heart of Jesus, passes through Jesus’ ideology of the nation and the world and goes in search for the whole value of restoring Heaven and earth, you will be able to restore all that Jesus lost. As the one who comprehends all the grief he suffered, you will be able to stand up as the one with victorious value.

Prayer

Father! Please forgive us, we who are neither loyal nor filial, for not understanding the heart of the Father who worries about the lonesome ones. Instead, until now we have been making the appeal for You to alleviate our anxiety. Please let us realize that the heart of Heaven is this miserable and anxious, and that we cannot dare to speak about our own situation to the Father.

Father, since this alone is inadequate, Father of love, we sincerely hope that You will allow us to remove the worries and concerns of the Father based on myself. Let us become the sons and daughter who can offer all that we have to the Father during this hour. Father, we are making our best effort to set the valuable conditions toward Heaven, within the sphere of our actual daily lives today. Father, please be with us.

Although we have been inadequate in that we could not be glad about our sacrifices, made for the sake of setting the conditions of Heaven’s value, from now on, we will become sons and daughters who can be happy even when we are being used limitlessly by the Father. Father, please give permission. We know that even Satan cannot block our footsteps, so beloved Father, we earnestly wish that You help us maintain an unchanging heart today and tomorrow.

Father, please let us understand that to become the bride of Jesus, the bridegroom, we must worry when the bridegroom worries, fight when the bridegroom fights, and dead or alive we must move with the bridegroom. Please raise us to the position of the bride who shares in the joy of the bridegroom. After passing through the course of conflict, they sing the glory of the Father amid the grace of liberation.

We wish that, on account of this, we can reclaim all that was lost. Wishing that the one day when we can sing the glory of the Father in praise and in joy will quickly emerge within the life course, the lives and in the minds of each person who has gathered here, we offer all these words in the name of the Lord. Amen.

Acts 14: 12

When the crowd saw what Paul had done, they shouted in the Lycaonian language, “The gods have come down to us in human form!” 12Barnabas they called Zeus, and Paul they called Hermes because he was the chief speaker. 13The priest of Zeus, whose temple was just outside the city, brought bulls and wreaths to the city gates because he and the crowd wanted to offer sacrifices to them.

14But when the apostles Barnabas and Paul heard of this, they tore their clothes and rushed out into the crowd, shouting: 15“Friends, why are you doing this? We too are only human, like you.
