When receiving the Blessing, Uni-
fication Church couples pledge to live
as eternal families. I am the one who
governs eternal families and the eter-
nal nation. I am setting the standard of
families in the eternal nation. Those of
you who keep your promise can inherit
that family, as well as that eternal nation.

There are seven horizontal stages you
have to pass through from the individ-
ual to the family, tribe, people, nation,
world, and heaven and earth, before
reaching the final position of God. There
are also eight vertical levels beginning
with the servant of servant’s position. On
the foundation of restoring the rights of
the firstborn son in the course of seven
of these eight levels, you must attain the
position of the original, unfallen first-
born son. Adam and Eve were the first
son and the first daughter. The first son
and daughter have to pass through the
realm of dominion based on accom-
plishments through the Principle. Then,
they must be connected to the realm of
direct dominion based on love and pos-
sess the right of the firstborn son. Such
connection is impossible with the love
of the younger child. They are not con-
nected with the love of the second child.
Therefore, you must return to this posi-
tion and restore the right of the firstborn
son going up stage by stage. This is the
battle to be fought. (138-134, 1986.1.19)

How did the devil bring about the
Fall? Through the fruit of the tree of
knowledge of good and evil? Where did
they cover themselves after eating the
fruit? Did they cover up their mouths
or their hands? Didn’t they cover up
the sexual parts of their bodies? This
became the seed that sowed evil. They
fell before they had fully matured, while
they were still adolescents. As the lin-
eage of humankind in world history
stemmed form this act, in the Last Days
the phenomenon of such relationships
will thrive. The time will come, that,
across the world, young people destroy
the ethics of love. They will hide in the
shadows, just like Adam and Eve, and
have no fear of heaven. That will be the
time when the era of Satan’s worldwide
dominion will come to the earth. That
is when we will be faced with the iron
hammer of God. (200-227, 1990.2.25)

If you want to become heavenly sons and daughters, then you have to rise as the pioneers of the liberation movement to liberate God and humanity from their sorrows, representing all humankind over whom God has wept. You have to arm yourself with a mental and ideological weapon to charge against the enemies as soldiers in the heavenly battle. You have to go forth and arm yourself not with a selfish ideology, but with an ideology that can embrace the cosmos. You have to realize that is the only way for you to become heavenly sons and daughters.
Now Heavenly Father has opened the door of providential restoration, and He is looking for the individual representative, the family representative, the representative of the race, and the national representative among the believers of the last days. Where are such individuals? Such an individual, such a family, such a nation, and such a world as God seeks are nowhere to be found. One should not be self- centered. That is why, even when you do hold onto your life-consciousness, do not forget to possess the life-consciousness of the world and heavenly law. Such awareness is needed. It is foolish to live according to the awareness derived from one’s limited experience as if it were all the value in life. History will laugh at such a person. This age and heavenly law will also laugh. World-consciousness exists, transcending our awareness. Heavenly-consciousness exists, transcending world-awareness. Therefore, you should open your heart and be newly born so that you can transcend world-awareness, go over the hills of pain and suffering felt through heavenly-awareness and finally say, “Heavenly Father, please receive us.”
Jesus walked such a path. He passed through the path of sorrow and pain. When he encountered the new ideology, the new breath of life, and the force of new awareness, he was able to overcome the realm of death and be resurrected. Likewise, you should realize that one can rise as a glorious citizen and glorious son or daughter for whom God is looking in this last day era of the Second Coming only if you are a person who brings the bright light of the cosmos to this world, which is struggling to remove its past historic mask, and establish the new self-awareness. Only from this position can one be qualified as someone who has passed through the historic han, someone who has resolved God’s han, and can rise holding Heavenly Father’s happiness in this age.
When we once again look back and think about God’s position, His sorrow was to see His beloved sons and daughters being persecuted. What, then, is the purpose of Heavenly Father leading in such a way, bearing the han of having His beloved son Jesus die on the cross and the han of having so many believers suffer death throughout the two thousand years of history since Jesus’ crucifixion? It was for us.
It was for us that Heavenly Father has endeavored until now; it was for us that He has walked the path of han. It was for the world. Therefore, you have to realize that you are indebted to Heavenly Father and that you are being led by Him.
You yourself have to become the prince of sadness and the prince of pain to look at the people of this world today and horizontally experience Heavenly Father’s heart, which He has been feeling throughout history. You can then say to Him, “I have come to You, transcending all sorrow and pain. Heavenly Father, please be glorified through me.” We should have the determination to live and die with humanity, breaking down the hills of death in this reality, breaking down the hills of pain and sorrow and overcoming all of today’s tribulations so that we may experience heavenly joy.
Thus, we should become a person who can say to God, “Father, look at me and be pleased. Humanity, look at me and be pleased. Cosmos, be pleased in looking at me.” Only when such an individual appears can God’s han be resolved.
We have to realize that if we can become such a person and are able to attend God as my Father whom I want to see, receive and live with, then the han, sorrow and pain of God and history can be resolved. You have to realize that only by becoming such a person can you become the sons and daughters of the unified palace.
