There is nothing God does not know.
He is all-knowing and all-powerful, has
full authority, and is omnipresent. But
what does this have to do with us? I am
asking what it has to do with us. You
may say, “Oh, since He has full author-
ity, it should be easy for Him to rule over
me. Since He is omnipresent, it should
be easy for Him to monitor me. Since
He knows everything, He will analyze
me thoroughly and leave no escape for
me.” What good would come from God
ruling over us through His omniscience
and omnipotence? (130-209, 1984.1.22)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1378

No one opposed me when I pro-
claimed myself as the True Parent and
Savior from July 3 to August 24 because,
as I explained in terms of what the Lord
would be returning to achieve, no one
had been able to do what I had accom-
plished for the world. As such, Christians
from the established churches could not
gainsay it. Then I held the 30,000 Cou-
ples Blessing, which means that 60,000
people were blessed. Before the ceremo-
ny, those Christians opposed it in every
possible way, claiming it was all a down-
right lie, but when I actually performed
it, they were dumbstruck. Once they
had actually seen me conduct the cer-
emony, all the established churches that
had until then been spreading lies about
us and opposing us on all sides were
silenced for good. (239-274, 1992.12.6)

The Freedom, Liberation and Unification God Seeks to Attain

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
October 12, 1958

John 8:31-47

The title of the sermon I want to reflect upon with you is “The Freedom, Liberation and Unification God Seeks to Attain.” I will speak briefly upon this topic. I will speak about “The Freedom, Liberation and Unification God Seeks to Attain” from the standpoint of faith.

You think that God is omnipotent and nothing is impossible for Him. God has so many abilities. Yet if one asks, searching deep down in his Shim Jung, whether God’s heart is free, I cannot say it is. If one asks if God is amid the joy of liberation with a promising providence in front of Him, that is not true either. Moreover, if one asks whether the activities of man and all things are motivated by God’s Shim Jung, that is, whether they are in a unified position in which they move with the movement of God’s heart, we cannot but discover that this is not true.

Today, the United States is consid-
ered the principal nation of democracy.
Yet a time will come when America will
decay because of money, and her people
will no longer care for democracy. The
current situation in Korea also reflects
this fact. Though democracy itself is a
good system, at present many Koreans
are engaged in scheming and slandering
others because of money. They are even
fighting against others to seize power.
Can that be considered a democracy?
What is currently taking place is a phe-
nomenon resulting from misrule by the
privileged class. (21-156, 1968.11.17)

Richard:  Yes, this is exactly what Pastor Hyung Jin Moon is talking about constantly.

The Freedom, Liberation and Unification God Seeks to Attain

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
October 12, 1958

John 8:31-47

31 Jesus told the people who had faith in him, “If you keep on obeying what I have said, you truly are my disciples. 32 You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

33 They answered, “We are Abraham’s children! We have never been anyone’s slaves. How can you say we will be set free?”

34 Jesus replied:

I tell you for certain that anyone who sins is a slave of sin! 35 And slaves don’t stay in the family forever, though the Son will always remain in the family. 36 If the Son gives you freedom, you are free! 37 I know that you are from Abraham’s family. Yet you want to kill me, because my message isn’t really in your hearts. 38 I am telling you what my Father has shown me, just as you are doing what your father has taught you.

39 The people said to Jesus, “Abraham is our father!”

Jesus replied, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would do what Abraham did. 40 Instead, you want to kill me for telling you the truth that God gave me. Abraham never did anything like that. 41 But you are doing exactly what your father does.”

“Don’t accuse us of having someone else as our father!” they said. “We just have one father, and he is God.”

42 Jesus answered:

If God were your Father, you would love me, because I came from God and only from him. He sent me. I did not come on my own. 43 Why can’t you understand what I am talking about? Can’t you stand to hear what I am saying? 44 Your father is the devil, and you do exactly what he wants. He has always been a murderer and a liar. There is nothing truthful about him. He speaks on his own, and everything he says is a lie. Not only is he a liar himself, but he is also the father of all lies.

45 Everything I have told you is true, and you still refuse to have faith in me. 46 Can any of you accuse me of sin? If you cannot, why won’t you have faith in me? After all, I am telling you the truth. 47 Anyone who belongs to God will listen to his message. But you refuse to listen, because you don’t belong to God.

Prayer

Father! Do not abandon Your sons and daughters who prostrated before You. Guide us not to hesitate in offering our entire mind and body to You. We have many points of dissatisfaction before You, but we dedicate our minds and bodies, relying upon the historical Shim Jung with which You worked hard to find us. Please have dominion over us. I sincerely desire that at this time, You will burn our shortcomings with the fire of the Holy Spirit and consecrate us so that we can dedicate our minds and bodies as a whole and acceptable offering to You.

Father! Your sons and daughters have taken the trouble-filled steps to this place instead of Your tearful course, filled with sorrow and stabbing pain. Please take note of our determination and actions. Lead us at this time to Your deep and loving Shim Jung, and let no one fall into Satan’s accusation.

We know that You want to spread the new word to the nation through us, but we are anxious that we may fail our responsibilities due to our disloyalty and shortcomings and bring sorrow to You. Father, I earnestly pray that You look at the faults with which we have served Your will and fill them with the power of Your life and love. Bless us so that we can take on any mission and responsibility. There is a myriad of satans in our path. Father, lead us so that our determination remains intact and we become an offering of life before You, enduring until the end without losing to Satan. I sincerely pray that You will guide us to proceed with our initial determination and fight for the sole purpose of revealing Your glory.

Have pity on Your children who are gathered here, and lead them to Your loving heart. Remove all elements of darkness. Allow us to serve You with the authority of life and as one body. Let us sing glorious hymns and show gratitude for Your blessing of glory. Keep Satan away from this gathering from the beginning to the end, and reveal only Your glory through our mind and body. We pray in the name of the Lord. Amen.

What did human beings lose through
the Fall? They lost the right of the eldest
son. They lost the right of the eldest son
to inherit the great foundation and assets
of heaven and earth. They lost it because
of the devil. We have been ignorant of
this. Moreover, although we were to
become eternal blood relatives who can
attend the Parent, the Creator of heav-
en and earth, focusing on God’s love,
life and lineage, Adam lost the right to
become the True Parent. Also, had the
Fall not occurred, there would be one
culture, the culture of Adam and the
tribe of Adam. This would have estab-
lished one right of kingship.

Cheon Seon Gyeong 1272

God wants everyone reborn. From
His position, He is trying to bring all
of humanity, which is still in the realm
of Satan’s false love, to His side through
His greater love. Since all humankind
was born through the parents, ances-
tors and lineage of false love, they need
to be reborn through the parents, ances-
tors and lineage of true love. In this way,
they can become the children of God
and the people of God’s Kingdom. The
precious blood of Jesus and the ritual of
the Last Supper all symbolize the provi-
dence of becoming the children of God
through the conversion of the lineage.

Let Us Possess the Everlasting Love of the Father

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
October 5, 1958

Matthew 22: 34-40

From this standpoint, we should be true sons and daughters and say to the sorrowful Father with the proper attitude of children, “Father, please be happy and not sad with me.” When I get mistreated, it should be for the sake of the Father. We should have the Shim Jung of true children, which seeks to console the Father, who is saddened on behalf of our mind and body. If you have such a Shim Jung, even when you are on the path of the cross, you cannot dare to say, “Father! The pain of death is severe. Please help me avoid this path of grief.”

Although it looks as if Jesus prayed to avoid the pain of death or was surrounded by fear, this was not true. When Jesus experienced God’s Shim Jung, who had suffered for 4,000 years to find Jesus, his own death was not a problem. Jesus prayed, “My Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me; nevertheless, not as I will, but as thou wilt,” (Matthew 26:39) for God’s and humanity’s sake, not for his own. You should know that God’s will can be realized with such a Shim Jung. Continue reading “Don’t Cry Over Your Own Situation”

Numbers 23

20 “My command from God
    was to bless these people,
and there’s nothing I can do
    to change what he has done.
21 Israel’s king is the Lord God.
He lives there with them
    and intends them no harm.
22 With the strength of a wild ox,
    God led Israel out of Egypt.
23 No magic charms can work
    against them—
just look what God has done
    for his people.
24 They are like angry lions
    ready to attack;
and they won’t rest
until their victim
    is gobbled down.”

Jeremiah 50

50 The Lord told me to say:

Announce what will happen
and don’t leave anything out.
    Raise the signal flags;
shout so all nations can hear—
    Babylon will be captured!

Marduk,[a] Babylon’s god,
will be ashamed and terrified,
    and his idols broken.
The attack on the Babylonians
    will come from the north;
they and their animals will run,
    leaving the land empty.

Let Us Possess the Everlasting Love of the Father

Rev. Sun Myung Moon

Matthew 22: 34-40

If God has a grudge about the earth, it is that there are no true parents, true couples or true children. This is why Heaven is sighing. Thus, Paul said that fallen people would be saved as adopted sons. No matter how excellent one is, he is only an adopted son. What then is God’s sorrow? It is the fact that His real children became adopted children. Thus, history has been a bitter process of restoring the direct children. Only one who knows God’s woeful Shim Jung of history can serve God closely. The parents who produce and raise children can feel God’s Shim Jung through loving their children. Thus, the ones who feel the true love of husband and wife must be able to feel God’s original love through this. It is the same with the children’s love for the parents.

When such a standard appears on the earth, we need an ideal of goodness. Though we are original bodies of goodness, we only have a relative view of life around that center. Only within the loving Shim Jung of the True Parents can we become the center of value, life, the ideal and love. We can then stand as the subject of all. You should know this clearly.

Embrace God’s Love, Life and Ideal Centered on the Second Coming

Cheon Seong Gyeong 583

All things of this world will pass
away. Our families, nations, and even
the world itself will pass away. Ideologies
and philosophies will pass away. What
will remain? It is the hope with which
we can fight and win over death. With-
out such a hope, we might as well call
ourselves failures in life.

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1175

Immediately after World War II, the
world could have restored the birthright
of right of the eldest son. If Christian-
ity had united with the founder of the
Unification Church, this past forty-year
course would not have occurred. Com-
munism would have already disap-
peared. If they had only listened to me,
Korea would not have been divided. If
the spiritual groups centered on Christi-
anity had all listened to what I said….
However, all the groups which had
been prepared to restore the Garden of
Eden were led to a fate like that of John
the Baptist, through their secular way of
thinking. After the liberation of Korea
the Unification Church faced opposi-
tion. To take charge of this situation, we
have been restoring, through indemnity
over a period of 40 years, the 2,000-year
history of Christianity and the 4,000
years of history since Jacob that were
repeated. (138-214, 1986.1.21)

Let Us Possess the Everlasting Love of the Father

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
October 5, 1958

Matthew 22: 34-40

The world of Shim Jung transcends time. Thus far, no one has been able to revolutionize the parents’ loving heart for their children. Its essence has remained unchanged throughout the vicissitudes of the ages. This happens in the world of love. When a beloved child is leaving the parents, no one, not even a powerful authority, can block the movement of the world of love. The movement of the world of love can transcend the hurdles of a giant mountain and the entire cosmos. Thus, to have an experience of Shim Jung, we should connect with the standard of the heart. Only in the world of Shim Jung can we establish the condition by which we can receive Jesus, who came to save us 2,000 years ago. Thus, in calling upon God, we should go beyond the situation and see the Shim Jung behind it. A parent’s love for a child transcends life. Love itself is the complete answer and complete motivation.

The day when we receive the Messiah as the subject of life, the ideal, love and the center of humanity is the day when God, the universe and humankind will all rejoice. It is the day when humankind finds the lost God, God finds the lost human and the earth. On the day of the Messiah, three conditions will be simultaneously restored. The real world will be created in which everything moves and halts through one heart. It is the day of hope for God, humankind and all things. What, then, is the standard of hope? It is the love that represents all. Continue reading “Embrace God’s Love, Life and Ideal Centered on the Second Coming”

Overcome Death to Love Christ at the Second Advent

I Thessolonians 2

15 Those Jews killed the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and they even chased us away. God doesn’t like what they do and neither does anyone else. 16 They keep us from speaking his message to the Gentiles and from leading them to be saved. The Jews have always gone too far with their sins. Now God has finally become angry and will punish them.

Jeremiah 14

There has been no rain,
    and farmers feel sick
as they watch cracks appear
    in the dry ground.[b]

A deer gives birth in a field,
then abandons her newborn fawn
    and leaves in search of grass.
Wild donkeys go blind
    from starvation.
So they stand on barren hilltops
and sniff the air,[c]
    hoping to smell green grass.

Let Us Possess the Everlasting Love of the Father

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
October 5, 1958

Before Jesus told others to invest their hearts, he first invested his heart for God. Before he told them to exert their wills, he did it first. Before he told them to love God with their utmost effort, he practiced it first. Thus, he became the substantial incarnation of the commandment. Jesus, who appeared on the earth with God’s mission for humankind, witnessed to God’s great power of life through words. When they went unheeded, he used miracles to witness. He introduced the ideal of the world and the cosmos to a nation who wished for their own happiness. The Israelite nation understood God’s ideal as being individually and nation-centered. Jesus showed God’s love to them through examples. He demonstrated a love which embraced the gentiles beyond the limits of the nation so that they could actually see and hear it.

Who received the stimulation of life from Jesus? Those who overcame death received it. Who felt the great power of hope? The same ones. Who felt the great power of love? Again, it was those who overcame death. They should have believed in Jesus when he was alive. They should have received the power of life to overcome death and attained the power of love. Only after they let Jesus die and saw his resurrection did they realize that he was their substantial ideal of life, ideals and love. Thus, they boldly went over the hill of death without fear.

God Shows the Example of Loving

Cheon Seong Gyeong 258

Section 2. We Should Fully
Understand the Words “True
Parents”
There is a term cherished in our Uni-
fication Church. Some of you might be
hearing it for the first time; it is the term
“True Parents.” We say, Our True Par-
ents! Did Jesus have True Parents? We
have something that Jesus did not. Did
Jesus have True Parents? Are not parents
responsible when they do not protect
their children? Parents ought to protect
their children. They must be a protective
barrier against Satan and say to their
children, “Be happy in our embrace.”
Did Jesus have that experience? For his
entire life Jesus grew up and was treated
as a stepson. This is why the Bible does
not contain the words true parents. It
does not contain the words true parents
or true brothers and sisters. These words
are a part of our Unification Church
terminology. They are not something I
invented. They are words discovered to
be part of the heavenly Principle. We
use the words true parents and true
children. We should understand how
true children should act. True chil-
dren should be able to offer their lives
and everything they have for the sake of
God’s Son and should be grateful even if
they themselves end up in hell. Without
going through such a process, nothing
can be accomplished. In this way, you
can return to the Father through having
the heart of true children. (76-73, 1975.1.26)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 891

You cannot eat without God’s love in
the spirit world. You do not have a right
to eat. You have to realize that hell is a
place where you watch but cannot eat,
and know but cannot act. Therefore, you
should know that only those who have
made substantial the core value that can
unite the spiritual and physical worlds
based on God’s love, and who have expe-
rienced the life of heaven on earth with
their mind and body united, can take
ownership in the eternal ideal world of
the Kingdom of Heaven. (91-173, 1977.2.6)

Let Us Possess the Everlasting Love of the Father

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
October 5, 1958

Matthew 22: 34-40

Today you exert enormous efforts through religion, seeking the infinite world of being. Why do you fail to find it? Why are you unable to recognize the world? From the standpoint of relationship, it is because the motivation and purpose deviate and you cannot make a relationship with the resulting value. All entities, individual, family, national, country and world, have their own wishes and purposes in their own situations. When the purpose of an entity differs from the heavenly purpose, it can hardly feel the eternal world of being. Heaven helps humankind feel this world through religion, not through intellectual conditions. This world is felt through ultimate emotional issues by holding up the standard of love.

Thus, God comes to us only with love, and we can meet God only with love. You must first know that God has been trying infinitely to reach out to us, giving hope to those without hope, giving life to those without life, and giving love to those who cannot be loved. You should know that God thinks of us before we think of Him. He existed before we existed and moves for us before we move. You should feel in your hearts that a Being exists who is greater than the value of our existence, ideal and affection, and He moves before we do. Continue reading “God Shows the Example of Loving”

Exodus 20

The people trembled with fear when they heard the thunder and the trumpet and saw the lightning and the smoke coming from the mountain. They stood a long way off 19 and said to Moses, “If you speak to us, we will listen. But don’t let God speak to us, or we will die!”

20 “Don’t be afraid!” Moses replied. “God has come only to test you, so that by obeying him you won’t sin.” 21 But when Moses went near the thick cloud where God was, the people stayed a long way off.

Richard:  The Israelites were fearful of God.  Now God is giving the message of the Rod of Iron.  We should not be fearful, but understand about sovereignty and our responsibility.

I will let you invade my country Israel, so that every nation on earth will know that I, the Lord, am holy.

When we ponder God, who exists as an Absolute Being in the world of relationship, and cannot deny the reality of His existence, we should feel that God has the same movements of life, ideals and affection as ours. This is because we have all of His attributes, since we were born of Him. Thus, we should know that our form reflects God’s.

Though God should appear to us as the subject of life, hope and love, He does not. This is the cause of humanity s sighing and sorrow today. To remove this, God maintains an inseparable relationship with humanity. To resolve human suffering, God has sent a substantial incarnation as the master of ideals, justice and life. This is Jesus.

We want the unification of North
and South Korea right now, but what is
the solution to the division? North and
South Korea cannot be united unless a
clearly defined solution is provided. It
cannot happen by either the North or
the South simply saying, “You have to
do as we say.” They cannot be unified if
both have something to lose. It’s possible
only when there’s a plus for both. Isn’t
that so? For example, a man and woman
cannot be one after marriage if they are
both minuses to each other; they must
find something that they can gain from
each other. (61-73, 1972.8.27)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1387

The True Mother has accomplished
a victorious foundation, thereby liber-
ating women from the position of fallen
Eve who could not fulfill her responsibil-
ity. Hence, the true women’s liberation
movement can finally be initiated. With-
in the next three years, we must proceed
with the efforts to restore the nation
through the liberation of women.
Since we have entered the era in
which we can restore the nation, we are
able to hold huge global weddings. Since
we reclaimed 360,000 couples from the
satanic realm, the satanic world has fall-
en to pieces. Now the families in the
secular world are bound to disintegrate.
Once this happens, the Blessed Families
will become the mainstream, and every-
one will get to know that the family ideal
I teach will not only bring liberation to
humanity, but also show us the short-
est route to world peace; consequently,
we will no longer face opposition. From
now on, if anyone dares to oppose us,
whether royalty or any other dignitary,
those around them should shout, “Be
quiet, you! Don’t you know what Rev.
Moon has achieved? Don’t you know
that he has brought together young men
and women from around the world and
married them in the 360,000 Couples
Blessing? What have you done that is so
great that you dare oppose him? Cut it
out!” Now the time has come for you to
go back to your hometowns and to sit on

Matthew 22: 34-40

Why could God not make man have a relationship with absolute love and goodness? I have struggled a lot with this question myself. Was God like this from the beginning? No. God is a being such that, without the fall, we could feel Him even before we thought about His existence. We could feel His existence inside us as the substance of hope even before we had wishes. He would appear even before we longed for Him. However, the fall means that humankind has not reached such an emotional, ideological and living standard. Everything was lost through the fall. You should know that this is the sorrow of humankind.

Now we are wandering about, searching for truth, life, the ideal and God’s love. With our ultimate power of life, the ideal and the standard of Shim Jung, we cannot help loving God and cannot help thinking that God is the center of the whole ideal and the cosmos. If you carry such feelings and make the connection within your life with the source of such a stimulus, God’s eternal life will become your eternal life. You will move and halt as God moves and halts. You should know that this is the hope of the Creator of humanity. Continue reading “The Bride and Bridegroom are Most Valuable”

2.2. God has been miserable
throughout history
How enraged God is when He looks
down on us on earth! All human beings
should have had His lineage, but Satan
pushes them into a miserable state and
scornfully jeers at God saying, “Your
descendants are miserable.” When
Satan asks God, “How will You, with
all Your omniscience and omnipotence,
redeem this difficult situation?” God can
only be silent. He has to pretend to be
deaf though He can hear, pretend not to
smell though He can smell, and pretend
not to feel though He can feel. Have you
ever thought about the misery of God
throughout history? (183-19, 1988.10.29)
