The Center of God’s Providence is Jesus

CSG 441

Also since everything is connected
to the core, then each position, one, two,
three, four, five, six and seven from this
central core are equal. If the grandfather
and his sons and daughters want some-
thing and the grandchild is not against
it, then all three generations will come
to want it. The grandfather and grand-
mother, husband and wife, and sons and
daughters all follow the center. In terms
of love, we say that the parent-child
relationship is one, the conjugal rela-
tionship is one, and the sibling relation-
ship is one. They are one body. What are
these relationships revolving around?
They are revolving around the true love
of God who is the center of love. Based
on true love, the parents and children,
husband and wife and brothers and sis-
ters all become one. In this way the val-
ue of everything becomes equal. (299-114,

All peoples in the world are the
same in that they are all human beings
regardless of skin color . W hether white
or black , the only difference between
them is their living environment. Sup-
pose a man married a black woman and
had a black child with her, and then
married a white woman and had a white
child with her. He would be as much the
father of the white child as he would be
of the black child. These two children
would share the same father. Unless
people are made to feel deeply in their
hearts that they are siblings born of the
same Father, whatever it takes for them
to realize it, the unification of all peo-
ples and generations in the world will be
impossible. (18-111, 1967.5.28)

The Forsaken Jesus

Rev. Sun Myung Moon

1 Peter 2:1-10

Stop being hateful! Quit trying to fool people, and start being sincere. Don’t be jealous or say cruel things about others. Be like newborn babies who are thirsty for the pure spiritual milk that will help you grow and be saved. You have already found out how good the Lord really is.

Come to Jesus Christ. He is the living stone that people have rejected, but which God has chosen and highly honored. And now you are living stones that are being used to build a spiritual house. You are also a group of holy priests, and with the help of Jesus Christ you will offer sacrifices that please God. It is just as God says in the Scriptures,

“Look! I am placing in Zion
a choice and precious
No one who has faith
in that one
    will be disappointed.”

You are followers of the Lord, and that stone is precious to you. But it isn’t precious to those who refuse to follow him. They are the builders who tossed aside the stone that turned out to be the most important one of all. They disobeyed the message and stumbled and fell over that stone, because they were doomed.

But you are God’s chosen and special people. You are a group of royal priests and a holy nation. God has brought you out of darkness into his marvelous light. Now you must tell all the wonderful things that he has done. The Scriptures say,

10 “Once you were nobody.
    Now you are God’s people.
At one time no one
    had pity on you.
Now God has treated you
    with kindness.


These Bible verses metaphorically describe Jesus as a stone. They also describe how the stone which the builders rejected became a cornerstone. We can see that this situation was not recognized by Jesus family, his religious order, the Israelites nor even his own beloved three disciples.

God drew out the chosen people from among their enemies. He raised them for salvation. Through this people, He tried to accomplish His great will. However, although the Israelites saw this will of God from the viewpoint of an ideology or history, they still could not live up to that will.

Embrace the Bigger Heart of Heaven

CSG 2068

Whether it is in the Citizens Feder-
ation, the VOC organization or in the
Unification Church, the place where all
of you must work is not in the offices.
Go do the tong ban breakthrough activ-
ities first and fight if you have to. You
should compete to see who will go into
their neighborhood and influence it the
most, who will go into their commu-
nity and get the most people to become
activists to liberate North Korea, and
who will inspire the most families to fol-
low the direction of their regional lead-
ers under the authority of the commit-
tee chairmen. If I had not told you this
publicly, then everything would have
fallen apart. You professors did not even
think of this. Do you know how much
I have thought about these things? So
my conclusion is that all the professors
here should become the leaders of tong
and ban (local communities and home
neighborhoods), regardless of whether
they are located in provinces or coun-
ties or towns. I mean that all professors
should pack their bags and go to their

1.3. The sexual organs: the
beginning and the end in solving
fundamental problems
Women, you must not defile your
sexual organs. Who did I say owns that
which belongs to woman? Don’t laugh! I
am revealing a fundamental principle of
the universe. Think about whether this
is true or not. Can you imagine how I
worked my fingers to the bone to find
this out? The words in themselves sound
simple, but do you realize how awesome
their meaning is? This will divide heav-
en and earth and the world into two
groups of people – evil and good. (177-219,

Matthew 24: 1-14

Now let’s not speak ill of others, saying that we family members have become the target that is being harassed. The people who have slandered others by mentioning their demerits and attempted to obtain their own profits thereby have perished. For that reason, today you should not lament over not having truth in your mind and body. You should not sigh for grief, saying that you do not know anything or have anything. You should not heave a sigh, saying that you do not have authority and influence. You should be able to pray, “Father, even if we are dispossessed of everything, please allow us to become Heaven’s elite pioneers who can defend the path of Jesus to the end. Please allow us to be the instruments of victory at the last.”

Jesus lost even his parents. He lost his relatives. He lost his own denomination and all the people whom he was to govern. Though he lost everything, he did not sigh for grief. Embracing the bigger heart of Heaven, emulating God’s patience, he endured even in the face of death. Although the souls of the martyrs have gone to the spirit world, the martyrs who died only wanting to be saved themselves did not reach a good place. However, the person who said a sinner like himself deserved to die a million times over ended up being in a high place in Heaven. Continue reading “Embrace the Bigger Heart of Heaven”

Remain Filial to the Father

CSG 440

Section 1. The Family is the
Central Model for All Beings

When you stand in the world of
space, you need top and bottom, left and
right, and front and back. Only then is
the status of your position stable. Your
shape will vary depending on the posi-
tion in which you stand: top and bottom,
left and right, front and back. When
dealing with matters that concern the
relationships of top and bottom, left and
right, front and back, and also problems
in the family, nation and world, there is
only one solution. Just as there has to
be top and bottom, left and right, and
front and back with the individual at the
center, there also have to be parents and
children, husband and wife, and broth-
ers and sisters.

CSG 1898

I have had so many difficult chal-
lenges in my life. A person cannot buy
these kinds of experiences, even with
a tremendous amount of money. Since
the weather was so bad, there weren’t
any boats out. When I threw out the
fishing line into the water, a number of
fish bit the hook as soon as the line was
dropped. Wouldn’t you expect this to
happen? Usually, a number of them bite
onto the bait from many different boats,
but since our boat was the only one at sea
that morning, all these starved fish, who
are capable of searching for food up to
distances of about four kilometers, were
all rushing to bite onto my bait. So when
I threw the fish hooks into the water, they
all bit onto them right away. I did not
pay attention whether the typhoon was
blowing or not. I continued to pour out
my sweat. It took four hours to get there,
and four hours to fish. From there, we
dragged the fish, with the engine run-
ning, for twenty miles. (233-306, 1992.8.2)

Matthew 24: 1-14

Why did God have to put Jesus in such an environment where he had to endure with patience as he tried to establish a new providential ideology? That was because human history began with the fall. Jesus had no choice but to conclude fallen history. There is a remarkable difference between Jesus in the Bible, the written history, and Jesus at that time. If the religious people then had believed in Jesus as much as the Christians today believe in him, Jesus would not have died on the cross.

The people who felt remorse after having killed Jesus and sought him were fallen people. Those who rejected Jesus have gone to hell. Although their followers have stepped forth, boasting that they were the chosen ones who represented the truth, history has revealed that Jesus, who did not look like a truthful man, represented the truth and that those who rejected him were in a non-truthful position. The actions of Heaven have flowed down in the course of history in a seemingly contradictory fashion. Although the chosen people knew the ideological truth centered on Jesus, they were distanced from the substantial truth. Continue reading “Remain Filial to the Father”

God’s People Have Endurance and Patience

Exodus 28

40 Since Aaron’s sons are priests, they should also look dignified. So make robes, sashes, and special caps for them. 41 Then dress Aaron and his sons in these clothes, pour olive oil on their heads, and ordain them as my priests.

42 Make linen shorts for them that reach from the waist down to the thigh, so they won’t expose themselves. 43 Whenever they enter the sacred tent or serve at the altar or enter the holy place, they must wear these shorts, or else they will be guilty and die. This same rule applies to any of their descendants who serve as priests.


16 From then on, I let half of the young men work while the other half stood guard. They wore armor and had spears and shields, as well as bows and arrows. The leaders helped the workers 17 who were rebuilding the wall. Everyone who hauled building materials kept one hand free to carry a weapon. 18 Even the workers who were rebuilding the wall strapped on a sword. The worker who was to blow the signal trumpet stayed with me.

Richard:  We should always be prepared.

Matthew 24: 1-14

God can embrace the satanic world and even hell. He has the mind to forbear with patience even there. Therefore, the satans in hell will bow their heads before His presence. Therefore, if you desire to become champions at the last, the Father’s sons and daughters at the last, then you must feel God’s patience as your patience and God’s endurance as your endurance in your minds and bodies. Because Christianity taught the way of patience and endurance, it became a worldwide religion.

The descendants of the chosen people live on the earth today. Since the chosen people betrayed the will of God, why cannot God forget them? Of course, these people went the side path, but it is because they had an unchanging mind as the chosen people God had elected. Although they are in a situation that is contrary to Heaven, once the time comes when they go in search of God, they are the people who can take upon themselves, more than any other people, the task of God’s patience and endurance.

Jesus Won Victory on the Cross

CSG 2079

Do you think the unification of
North and South can be achieved if
you work comfortably in South Korea?
Korea is the world’s front line and focal
point. As we see, all kinds of phenom-
ena are occurring here based on God’s
will. If you completely unite and move
South Korea, the spirit world will work,
won’t it? Who else can understand such
things? (165-215, 1987.5.27)

When you use holy salt, you should

Matthew 24: 1-14

Although God has endured with patience for 6,000 years, the land He can rule has not yet been restored. Therefore, you must now restore the whole land through indemnity. You must create a new history and go forth seeking a new ideology. Accordingly, you who are placed in a situation like this must endure with more patience than anyone else.

You must then step forth looking for a truthful religion. You must step forth looking for the truthful sons and daughters of Heaven. You must find a man of faith who endures with patience and be in his service. You must wander and seek the denomination that knows how to endure with patience. You must know that the people with faith who march on toward Heaven today are entrusted with the mission to seek the race and nation which know how to endure with patience.
