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.

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)

Let Us Be Persons of Forbearance

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.
