Catching tuna is not fishing. It is
more like hunting at sea. You are hear-
ing the term “hunting at sea” for the first
time, right? Catching one tuna is hard-
er than killing a large cow. One tuna
weighs more than one thousand pounds.
Some tunas can weigh five hundred, six
hundred, or even seven hundred kilo-
grams – that is bigger than a bull. It is
exciting to catch such fish! We take all
the blood out since the fish will spoil if
left for a long time after being caught,
and in an instant the water becomes a
sea of blood. At that moment, I cannot
help but think, “Oh, I am so merciless!”
Whenever I feel that way, I think “God
allows people to suffer because they are
the sacrificial offerings for the libera-
tion of humankind.” Also, I feel better
when I tell myself, “Well, these fish were
caught from nature and I never invested
myself in raising them, but from now on
I will raise fish and offer them as a sacri-
fice.” This is why I carry out the fish farm
and marine product industries. (219-196,

Richard:  Rev. Moon loved fishing.  It’s good to have a hobby you really love!

Yet, there are some silly people who
say that they will just do as I do – follow-
ing me when I go down to the country
or using crude language because I do….
I have lived a life of attendance to God,
and even served and bowed respectfully
to young children until the time came
that I could speak without using honor-
ific language. After knowing God’s will,
people feel awkward to such an extent
that when I speak to them in respectful
language they cannot respond with their
faces raised. Imagine how awkward it
would be if I had to treat you so politely.
(57-277, 1972.6.4)

Richard:  We may get a revelation as we near the top of the growth stage that ‘you are the lord’.  However, this does not mean you are the returning Lord and Savior.  Rather, you are to be a lord of creation according to the original ideal of creation.  We have to discern between good and bad spiritual influence and use God’s word (the eight sacred textbooks to discern between what is right and wrong.

Let Us Follow the Way of Jesus

Matthew 7:1-20

Mary said after being told about the birth of Jesus, “Lord! Do as You will.” This remark should be made at least once by every fallen person. Not only Mary, but anyone seeking the path of life must have the heart to say, “Lord, do as You will.” Without such an answer, no one can make a connection of life with Jesus.

Jesus came on such a foundation. After conceiving, Mary thought about the will more than anyone else did as the baby grew inside her womb. Believing that when the baby was born, the Messiah would appear and clear away the resentment and sorrow of the nation, Mary must have thought more than anyone else about the time when God’s will for the earth would be realized. Jesus was born in this way.

Without Joseph’s family, how would Jesus have been born? If it had been known to the world that Mary had conceived a child as a virgin, she would have been stoned to death according to the law of Moses. This was the worst violation of the law; it was considered unpardonable in the social circumstances and situation of the age, the worst shame upon the nation. Since Mary and Joseph had a Shim Jung ardent enough to defy all the circumstances and come forward for the will, Mary could give birth to Jesus.

Joseph and Mary took steps thinking only of the will. Because of this, when their footsteps ran into the evil world, Heaven opened a way for them to live. Jesus came through such footsteps. We should think about Jesus, who prepared himself for the day when he could realize his purpose by going through the three-year course in Egypt and living a quiet life as a helper of his father, who did carpentry work for a living.

Among the words in the Bible, there is a passage, “Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” (Matthew 7:7) Jesus declared this with a desperate heart when he embarked upon a pioneering course with the new gospel.
