1 Thessalonians 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.
Richard: When you are preaching God’s Word and doing His work, you are sure to be opposed and persecuted.
6 Don’t be afraid of them or of anything they say. You may think you’re in the middle of a thorn patch or a bunch of scorpions. But be brave 7 and preach my message to them, whether they choose to listen or not. 8 Ezekiel, don’t rebel against me, as they have done. Instead, listen to everything I tell you.

In the last several years the situation of the world has changed most dramatically. As you know, communism has tumbled down and I had to prepare internal and providential changes in order to generate these external changes. I have been very busy to keep up with the schedule of the Providential will and program and therefore have not been with you too many times. Do you understand and welcome me?
As you well know, the Unification Church has been in the position to receive the most persecution. From that position we are rising to the position of being most welcomed by the society and the nation. I’m sure you feel that change to the bone, don’t you? We have witnessed the collapse of the left wing or communism, and watched the crumbling of the Berlin Wall. The right wing, or democracy, which is represented by the United States and the free world, should be prospering while the left wing is going down. However, that is not happening. The free world is also going down, following the path of the demise of communism. This is the real problem today.
Of the two thieves on either side of Jesus at the crucifixion, one opposed him and one offered his support, introducing the terms left wing and right wing. During the time of the Second Advent, the left wing and right wing terminology will disappear. The Messiah shall stand victoriously in the center, forming the headwing, or Godwing. The left and right will unite with the central Godwing ideology. This is the conclusion and culmination of religious history.
The world is in absolute confusion today. The democratic world is in trouble and has no solutions. The left wing is in disarray. Can the leaders of the free and communist worlds find a solution for lasting peace? No! Reverend Sun Myung Moon’s actions will become the focal point for promoting peace.
The Unification Movement is a multi-colored movement with people from all backgrounds. Many governments have persecuted this movement and tried to wipe it off the face of the earth. But we have continued to prosper. Therefore, they now know they must either join or decline.
