Richard: I want to travel and spread the completed testament gospel through Happy Mind Community Ministries. This will be about spreading the completed testament gospel to specific geographic areas through Urban Grocery and Urban Life Training. Stay tuned.

44 These men divorced their foreign wives, then sent them and their children away.[
Richard: The Jews were supposed to marry only with other Jews, not to foreign wives. God was angry about this. That is why they had to divorce their foreign wives. Those who have received God’s lineage in the Completed Testament Age should also not dishonor God by marrying outside God’s lineage.

To the Mobile Fundraising Team Workshop
I have gone through prison life and persecution and am still grateful to God. Win victory for the world. You as my spiritual children should be ready to tread same way. In later days people will find more opposition because Father is a yellow man. This can motivate us to tear down racial discrimination at an earlier date. People will find persecution wrong. Men will be tearfully united into oneness to oppose evil. I welcome opposition wherever it comes from. By difficulties you can experience just a bit of what Father has gone through. Do you want to feel more challenged? I am Korean. You are American. I am confident to save the world. You must do so much more. Can you say you are frustrated? No! History will be our judge. Our way of thinking is different. You must be stingy to use money for yourself. Save money for the sake of the world. Misusing money earned is like drinking poison. Money we earn is for the public not you. If you raise money for an individual purpose it just ends there. If you save one penny for mankind you can save mankind. If you have misconceptions about money it is better if you leave now. You are not needed anywhere.
The whole world is looking for us – even in the spirit world. Heaven and earth need us. I teach you to be valuable and have the topmost standard. I build that personally. Ignorant people criticize but I am not conscience-stricken. I am making you into dynamic people who can sacrifice to save the rest of mankind. At your age if left alone you can idle away. I’m confident I can educate and discipline you to save the world. If you go like this you will have nothing to fear. Man’s salvation and a career can be accomplished, too. You have seen an example in myself. In three years I am influential and have money after coming empty-handed. My PR talk is a speech. The president and congressmen are impressed by me. Training made it all possible. Do you want to be a miniature Rev. Moon? So wherever you are sent you can be as great a success as I am. Compare yourself after three years. Will there be a vast difference? If you trust me, do it! Be on the mark so when I order you to dash forward you can run at top speed.
If you are frustrated, I am discouraged. If you are a catcher does the pitcher throw the ball hard or easy? Hard! If a catcher is not alert his palm will hurt. If you know how to run you won’t hurt. In that case when the ball comes faster it will be easier to catch. The ball goes straight for your hand so you can aim and catch it. The mind is subject so if you are full of zeal you can do almost anything. If you say no to fundraising your mind and body say your body is in charge. If your mind is dynamic and in charge, it will tell you to go. If father is frustrated for the past 30 years could he make the unification movement? No. Satan will not leave him alone. Was Jesus called to the cross by sin? No. Satan was against that righteous person. So the American people so hate Rev. Moon that they will do anything against him. They fabricate false stories. I imagine every possible way I can be tortured – prison, being captured by the FBI. I’m not worried. There will be a breakthrough by God.
Suppose police are at your door. Are you scared? At the point of a gun will you say you believe in Rev. Moon’s doctrine? Yes. That’s easy to say. It’s more difficult than it sounds. I cannot trust you unless you have determination and faith. You must feel responsible. If I collapse heaven and earth will collapse with me. You can’t afford to collapse. You should think even though I’m just an individual if I die the whole nation will collapse. I feel each moment that if I’m not successful the nation will die. I am so confident and so serious. On the street you must feel the whole population is behind you, including spirit world. In selling flowers the whole spirit world is cheering. If you are that kind of person, God prepares people. He prepares them by giving them visions and dreams. Without that experience you cannot feel that this is what God would have you do. You miss your family I’m sure. This means that you are sacrificing the most valuable things on the altar of God. Those people without exception are blessed by God with more success and abundance. I am like that. I feel confident and I teach you this way of life. If a man uses his flesh mind he’s pulled down below the average man. If a man opens his spirit eyes he’s lifted up to a lofty level. Your physical body gets exhausted but your spirit will hear voices cheering you to work more for mankind. The flesh wants to relax but the spirit wants to work. What to do? Work more! That is the way. The flesh obeys the mind. If you doze while looking up it is forgivable. In that case you have done best. No one can expect more. Then he will be sympathetic with you.
