Harbor Gratitude Toward the Absolute Sovereignty of God’s Love-ism

Cheon Seong Gyeong 2094

Until now, each administrative
authority in the Republic of Korea has
never had the experience of carrying
out its political or educational directives
centered on tong and ban. It has never
carried out education on a national level.
It has been unable to advocate its ideolo-
gy. It has only been able to gather togeth-
er the city mayors or the county officials,
and maybe one or two other people from
the local neighborhoods. The main tar-
get for ideological education has not
been the leaders of tong and ban. There-
fore, there are no roots. It means that
no roots were put down here. That’s the
point; there are no roots. It’s just like a
floating weed. (165-224, 1987.5.27)

Richard: This is exactly the same Rheama I had on July 20, 2019 ( https://inspiration.visionroot.org/2019/07/20/the-original-embodiment-will-establish-the-original-family/ ), when God inspired us to begin consistent Home Church ministry in our neighborhood. This is definitely on God’s mind and on True Father, Rev. Sun Myung Moon’s mind, as well as on Jesus’ mind, as the New Year begins.

Those who have become princes
and princesses of God’s love, who have
become members of the royal fam-
ily loved by the King and Queen, can
enter heaven. Christianity preaches that
those who merely believe in Jesus will
go to heaven. They will learn the true
state of affairs when they pass away.
Once they enter the next world they will
come to know whether my words were
true or not. What is being claimed now
is incomplete. All religious teachings up
until the present have fallen short. (237-172,
1992.11.16)

Rev. Sun Myung Moon

The whole world is to accomplish
the Blessing of 360 Million Couples and
root out the lineage of the satanic world.
This is the end. There will be no more
after this. For this reason, the gates to
hell and heaven are being thrown wide
open. Those who were our enemies in
the past will attend the True Parents and
hold welcoming banquets for them. The
True Parents had not been welcomed
by families, tribes, races, nations, and
the world. Therefore, in the first ban-
quet held on the cosmic level, the peo-
ple who until that time were enemies
will enter the heavenly way according
to God’s laws and, from that point on,
move toward His kingdom on earth.
(296-298, 1998.11.18)


Gathered here are couples from all
the Blessings ranging from the 36 to
the recent first phase of the 360 million.
While being educated together for for-
ty days, what should they be doing? The
elder couples should set an example to
the new members. That is why the elder
members have been asked to share their
testimonies. Both husbands and wives
are to do this with regard to their marital
life and experiences. They must report
truthfully about all their physical and
spiritual concerns. That is family educa-
tion on the fundamental level. Wrong-
doings must be uprooted and exposed.
You cannot enter heaven if you hide
your wrongdoings. (297-282, 1998.12.22)


We are talking about the cosmic
expansion of the Blessing – where should
it be held first: in the spiritual or physi-
cal world? Didn’t Eve make love with
the archangel first? We must hasten to
liberate the spirit world. The era of the
Blessing of 360 Million Couples signifies
the transition from the global level into
relating with the spirit world, making it
possible for spirit people to be brought to
and blessed at the boundary between the
two worlds. Among the people blessed
in this last ceremony, were there Mafiosi
or not? Were murderers included? How
about yakuza or gangsters? All kinds of
people were included in that Blessing.
(301-160, 1999.4.25)


The Blessing of 360 Million Cou-
ples signifies that we have surpassed
the realm of dominion based on accom-
plishments through the Principle. We
are now in the global era. Spring is upon
us, the season of revival. I have brought
you here in order to bless you. So what
should you do in return? You should
become the leaders who can reign over
the devil. (297-298, 1998.12.22)


Unification Church members are to
offer three-tenths, not tithes. Through
this tradition, everyone should offer their
assets, nations, and land by connecting
to the offering based on the number
three. The Old Testament Age is the era
of material things, the New Testament
Age that of children, the Completed Tes-
tament Age of parents, and what comes
next is the age of liberation. The age of
liberation from anguish signifies enter-
ing God’s era. In that process, the right
of ownership must revert to God.
The Communist party completely
reversed that through brute force, using
knives and guns. We don’t do that. The
tradition of the Unification Family is to
harbor gratitude towards the absolute
sovereignty of God’s Love-ism forever
and ever, and to be tens of times more
grateful in your hearts with gratitude
not forced by guns or knives but coming
from your hearts voluntarily. From now
on, all Blessed Families from the 36 to
the 360 Million Couples should inherit
this tradition, and bequeath God’s King-
dom of the ideal of love to their descen-
dants. This is the final responsibility the
Unification Church should accomplish.
(302-23, 1999.5.14)

Satan’s Lineage Must be Denied

1 Timothy 6

But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.

11 But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, endurance and gentleness. 12 Fight the good fight of the faith. Take hold of the eternal life to which you were called when you made your good confession in the presence of many witnesses. 13 In the sight of God, who gives life to everything, and of Christ Jesus, who while testifying before Pontius Pilate made the good confession, I charge you 14 to keep this command without spot or blame until the appearing of our Lord Jesus Christ, 15 which God will bring about in his own time—God, the blessed and only Ruler, the King of kings and Lord of lords, 16 who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honor and might forever. Amen.

Ecclesiastes 2

20 I thought about all my hard work, and I felt depressed. 21 When we use our wisdom, knowledge, and skill to get what we own, why do we have to leave it to someone who didn’t work for it? This is senseless and wrong. 22 What do we really gain from all of our hard work? 23 Our bodies ache during the day, and work is torture. Then at night our thoughts are troubled. It just doesn’t make sense.

24 The best thing we can do is to enjoy eating, drinking, and working.[d] I believe these are God’s gifts to us, 25 and no one enjoys eating and living more than I do. 26 If we please God, he will make us wise, understanding, and happy. But if we sin, God will make us struggle for a living, then he will give all we own to someone who pleases him. This makes no more sense than chasing the wind.[e]

With the fulfillment of the Blessing
of 360 Million Couples, all barriers will
collapse. Barriers for individuals, fami-
lies, tribes, peoples, nations, the world,
and cosmos in the satanic realm, as well
as the walls in the realm of God’s heart,
will all be broken down. (292-54, 1998.3.28)
Blessing 360 million couples will
demolish the walls that block out the
free environment of God’s Kingdom
on earth, clearing away all barriers for
individuals, families, tribes, peoples,
nations, the world. We are doing this.
Make sure that you are going the way
you should. (294-220, 1998.7.19)


Blessing 360 million couples on
earth would mark the beginning of the
Blessing in the spirit world. In this man-
ner, Satan’s lineage would be eradicated
– that is to say, the era in which Satan
can accuse us will have passed, and the
era of the all-immanence, all-transcen-
dence, supreme authority, and omnipo-
tence of the True Parents is coming, in
which they can exercise their full pow-
ers. The era of privilege in which God
created and took delight in Adam and
Eve, telling them, “It is good! All things
will be called according to the names
you give them!” is coming once again.
(293-90, 1998.5.24)


We are going to bless 360 million
couples. Since failure occurred within
the couple, it is through couples that we
need to reverse that failure. These 360
million couples transcend all human-
kind, history and the providence. This
is the final task; through it we can com-
pletely eradicate Satan’s lineage. Let us
liquidate it completely. (294-208, 1998.7.19)


I did not declare the restoration of
the right of kingship so that I could unite
the free democratic world and become
its sole king. Though a king, I have given
up the global nation. God does not have
His own nation. How then can I have my
global nation? What God desires is the
king of all families. He is looking for the
family king. The family king! He must
emerge. For that to happen, Satan’s lin-
eage must be denied through blessing
360 million couples worldwide. I am the
representative who has Blessed Couples
in marriage. What sort of representative
am I? Since I am representing kingship, I
am the family king. If I were to proclaim
to the world right here and now that I am
the family king, there is not one person
in the world who could contradict me.
(295-87, 1998.8.17)


What is this year’s motto? “Being
proud of and loving the True God abso-
lutely means accomplishing the Blessing
of 360 Million Couples and rooting out
the lineage of the satanic world.” What
should we do after blessing 360 million
couples? Who should be the first to be
blessed by God in the Garden of Eden?
It will not be the elderly, the middle-
aged or young adults, but rather adoles-
cents. Until now, many elderly and mid-
dle-aged people and young adults have
Chapter 3 • The Providential Significance of the Blessed Couples 1403
been blessed; now the time has come for
us to focus on the adolescents. (296-66,
1998.10.14)

Parents Will Bless Their Own Children

Cheon Seong Gyeong 446

Schools raise the people needed by
the nation by educating the qualified
elite to serve the nation. They are train-
ing and experimentation sites. Training
is not real life but a preparation stage.
You should not make the wrong prepa-
rations. What is the family? It is a train-
ing ground for the heart. It is a place
where you train your heart to love. This
is why you should live affectionately like
brothers and sisters at school and also
live affectionately like brothers and sis-
ters in the nation. Parental education is
needed at school, in society and also by
the nation. Parents should pass every-
thing in the realm of heart on to their
children. They should create a founda-
tion of heart for their children by teach-
ing them to follow their parents’ foot-
steps in living in certain ways in the
family, the society, and in the nation.
(180-130, 1988.8.22)

Where, then, are people going? They
are going to heaven. How about angels?
They are also going to heaven. How
about your mother and father? They
are also going to heaven. How about
your dog? It is not going to hell. At the
time of the Korean War, one rich fam-
ily was trying to escape to the South.
They had a dog they had boasted about
as being very expensive, but they didn’t
take it with them; they just tied it to the
door and said, “Good-bye, we’re off.”
Our Unification members should not
do such things. Now, dogs and all cre-
ation can follow their masters to heaven
or anywhere else that their masters may
go. (78-336, 1975.6.10)

Cheong Seong Gyeong 1401

Rev. Sun Myung Moon

There were twelve peaks to sur-
mount – passing through formation,
growth, and completion stages – before
going on to fulfill the goal of the Bless-
ing of 360 Million Couples. We did not
stop there, however. Instead of blessing
only 3.6 million couples, we completed
the 40 Million Couples Blessing and as
a result our path from then on came to
be on an equalized level. That is how the
goal for the Blessing became 400 mil-
lion couples. The Blessing of 360 Million
Couples is one of equalization. It allows
everyone to have an equal opportunity
to receive the Blessing. More than half
of the world’s families will be involved
in it. (302-132, 1999.6.12)

Now that the Realm of the Cosmic
Sabbath for the Parents of Heaven and
Earth has been proclaimed, God can
come on earth. Thus, now is the time for
a great worldwide Blessing to take place,
through which all the foundations of
families and tribes can be connected.
By blessing the 3.6 million, 36 million
and 360 million Couples, Satan’s blood-
line manifested in all humankind must
be cut off. Not one person having that
bloodline should be left out. This lin-
eage must be completely converted. (288-
64, 1997.10.31)

By completing the Blessing of 360
Million Couples, we will enter the realm
where God can have direct dominion
over us, and thus be able to pass through
the eras of restoration of the rights of the
first born and of the parents and move
into the era of restoration of God’s king-
ship. (289-215, 1998.1.2)

Once the Blessing of 360 Million
Couples is under way, we will enter the
era of the realm of the fourth Adam, in
which there will be no need for indem-
nification. Thus, we will enter the era in
which the parents can bless their chil-
dren in Eden on behalf of God. In this
way, the direct pathway leading to heav-
en can be paved, along which blessed
members can lead the relatives they have
blessed and reach all humankind. (290-29,
1998.2.2)

Once the Blessing of 360 Million Cou-
ples is complete, I will no longer conduct
any more Blessing ceremonies. From
that time on, parents will bless their own
children. This will be known as the era of
the liberation of the realm of the fourth
Adam. There will be no indemnity. In
the first and second realms respectively,
Adam failed in the Old Testament and
New Testament Ages. Even in the Com-
pleted Testament Age, we have been per-
secuted. On entering the era of the liber-
ated realm of the fourth Adam, however,
the world will become the one originally
envisaged before the Fall. That realm of
Adam refers to the whole universe, in
which people will form families where-
in unfallen parents standing in the posi-
tion of true parents bless their children,
bequeathing the ideal of the family and
all internal and external ideals created
by God. Thus, the world cannot help but
become one. (290-167, 1998.2.18)

We Are Entering the Age When Parents Will Bless Their Children

2 Samueal 12

20 David got up off the floor; he took a bath, combed his hair, and dressed. He went into the Lord’s tent and worshiped, then he went back home. David asked for something to eat, and when his servants brought him some food, he ate it.

Richard: Here David picks himself up and continues life after his young son had died. Whatever difficulties arise, we should compose ourselves and continue with the core mission God has given us.

Ezekiel 16

33 Prostitutes accept money for having sex, but you bribe men from everywhere to have sex with you. 34 You’re not like other prostitutes. Men don’t ask you for sex—you offer to pay them!

The Lord said:

35 Jerusalem, you prostitute, listen to me. 36 You chased after lovers, then took off your clothes and had sex. You even worshiped disgusting idols and sacrificed your own children as offerings to them. 37 So I, the Lord God, will gather every one of your lovers, those you liked and those you hated. They will stand around you, and I will rip off your clothes and let all of those lovers stare at your nakedness. 38 I will find you guilty of being an unfaithful wife and a murderer, and in my fierce anger I will sentence you to death! 39 Then I will hand you over to your lovers, who will tear down the places where you had sex. They will take your clothes and jewelry, leaving you naked and empty-handed.

Richard: Jerusalem had fallen far from God’s standard. And although the language in this passage is symbolic, it is also literal. The moral standards of the Israelites had fallen to a very low level. And are we not int he same situation today. God does not accept homosexuality, extra marital sex and all kinds of sexual perversions that happen now. We have deviated far from God’s standard. Abstinence before marriage and absolute faithfulness in marriage is not just a nice idea; it is the standard that God has set up as His ideal of creation.

Section 12. The 360 Million Couples


Adam’s was the representative fam-
ily – formed by the union of God and
true parents – that would have embraced
the universe; had Adam not fallen, being
blessed by him would have been a uni-
versal blessing. Yet due to the Fall, they
were separated, and so families in the
world today cannot enter the realm of
grace of this great blessing. In order to
restore that which was lost in Adam’s
family through the Fall, I will bless 360
million couples standing in the equal-
ized position in the realm of families
worldwide. (287-142, 1997.9.14)
After the Blessing of 3.6 Million Cou-
ples, it will be a downhill ride – descent
is easy. That will be the 36 million Cou-
ples: the growth stage. What follows is
the Blessing of 360 Million Couples; by
then we would reach level terrain at the
bottom of the hill. Descending there, we
can return to the state of Adam’s fam-
ily before the Fall. By achieving this, we
are entering the age when parents will
bless their children. From this point on,
you can perform the preliminary Bless-
ing ceremonies yourselves. Recognized
as John the Baptist families, you will be
able to do that in the name of the True
Parents. (287-144, 1997.9.14)
Three hundred and sixty million
couples! To think that we will soon have
blessed 360 million couples! You cannot
deny that God is with us in this task. If
I were to explain this in detail, I would
have to go into the secrets of the New
and Old Testaments and all the histori-
cal theological systems. Once you heard
those things, your ears would be opened
and you would develop an insight into
the providential future. Then there would
be no one on earth who could stop you
from walking your providential path.
Do you want this insight or not? These
secrets are such that you would want to
see them with your own eyes even if you
had heard them, and once you had seen
them you would want to listen to the
words again and again, whether in per-
son or not. To gain this knowledge you
should not go a single day without hear-
ing my words. (287-201, 1997.10.30)
What would happen after the Bless-
ing of 36 Million Couples is accom-
plished and the next goal of 360 million
couples comes in sight? Since that is the
number of couples, that would mean
there would be 720 million individuals
involved in the Blessing. If each of them
brought four members from their fami-
ly, then four times seven is twenty-eight,
and the total number brought by them
would be 2.8 billion. Some would bring
even more than four people. Are there
only four family members per house-
hold in the East? There are some fam-
ilies with between five and ten mem-
bers in them. That would result in more
than three billion people coming over
to God’s side, which is more than half
the world population. The era has come
when, if you were to weigh the two sides
with a scale, our side would be the heavi-
er. (288-18, 1997.10.31)

I Must Have the Desperate Heart to Dig Through that Opposition

Cheong Seong Gyeong 387

I would say that marriage is a ceremo-
ny to open and enter the gate of the pal-
ace of happiness. It is for this reason that
marriage is a great event of human affairs.
Love is the greatest thing in human
affairs, for it transcends time and space,
and marriage is a ceremony to reveal and
confirm such love. (Blessed Family – 356)

Choen Seong Gyeong 1550

Godism is not about living for the
sake of oneself. It teaches giving for the
sake of others. In short, it is a path where-
by one puts others before oneself. The
devil’s ideology tells you to live for your-
self whereas God’s ideology asks you to
live for others. That is why the more you
give and give and then give again, the
more your possessions will pile up in the
next world of eternity. In the communist
world, the more one gives, the more one
loses, and so no one works for others.
In God’s world, on the other hand, this
is not the case, and so everyone works
night and day without rest, shedding
blood and sweat, for the benefit of every-
one else. Those who consistently give in
the same manner as God are bound to be
blessed. (209-292, 1990.11.30)

Jesus Whom God Wanted To Find

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
October 18, 1959

Matthew 23:29-39

In the world of the heart, there is no variance from the heart of God. What does the “Alpha and Omega” mean? Because God is the substance of and the central being of love, He does not have an alpha or omega, a beginning or an end. True love cannot have a beginning and an end. In the course of the providence of restoration, heading toward the world of the heart, the ideology that searches the background of history and shouts, “God’s heart is hidden here. Oh! This is the path that our race must take,” is the ideology which will save that race. If there is a person who finds God’s heart which flows behind world history and who shouts out that this is the way for mankind to prosper, that person will be able to pioneer the way for the salvation of this world. Moreover, if there is a person who can proclaim that the heart of the cosmos, Heaven and earth, the spiritual world, and everything is his, that person would be the Christ who has come again. Then the beginning and re-creation of Heaven and earth, the history of completion will unfold.

It is our hope and our life of faith to seek out this world. Since you must travel that path, you must decide the direction of heart. Ultimately, you must decide the direction of your heart. You must love God and Jesus more than you love anything else in the world. You must love the world that Jesus loved. You must be able to love the people that Jesus loved. After loving something bigger than oneself, if there is anything left, then one should think of oneself. But the opposite trend is happening today. People think that it doesn’t matter whether the nation collapses, the world perishes or Heaven grieves. “As long as my children and I do not perish, it’s fine.” This is upside down thinking.

In order to cut away from this, Jesus said that the members of your family are your enemies. For the sake of the public will, you must abandon private feelings. The person who acts for the sake of the group that he belongs to more than he acts for his family is a loyal subject of that group. Furthermore, if he sacrifices for the group as well as for nation, he is a loyal subject of that nation. Moreover, if there is a person who dies for the sake of the public ideology of the world instead of just his nation, he might be a traitor to his nation but he is a loyal subject of the world. Furthermore, if there is a person who goes over the world and lives for the sake of God, he is the greatest loyal subject. Jesus is an example of that kind of person.

The greatest standard of the happiness that is granted to man is being a true servant of God, a true loyal subject of God and a true, filial son and daughter of God. These are the words of God’s grace. What do you think? Have you become God’s loyal subject, filial sons and daughters whom He can recognize? You must step over your family, your nation, and this world and seek God. You must go with high spirits. Jesus went that course with a commanding spirit.

If my family opposes me, I must thrust through that family. If my people oppose me, then I must dig through that people. If my nation opposes me, then I must go through that nation. If the world opposes me, I must go through the world. If numerous evil spirits in the spiritual world oppose me, I must have the desperate heart to dig through that opposition. The problem is whether we have that heart. Even Satan’s iron net will be withdrawn when it faces that heart. Only the sons and daughters who can shout, “Father! I love You more than anybody. I love You more than the world. I love You just as Jesus loved you,” can become Jesus’ brides. If those kinds of sons and daughters appear, will Jesus say, “Hey, why are you doing that?” Will that happen? No. Jesus has longed for two thousand years for those kinds of sons and daughters to appear. Only a person who longs for that kind of family, that kind of brother and that kind of children, and who strives to become that kind of person will be able to become the citizen, the family, and the kin who can support Jesus, whom God wanted to establish.

Even the failure to take on the historical mission can be restored if we possess a heart of love. Therefore, we must seek that kind of place. Love cannot be compared to anything in the whole of Heaven and earth. A person will not trade a handkerchief that was given to him by his beloved for a million pieces of gold. No matter how small the number, how great it would be if there are sons and daughters of God who are connected in their hearts with Jesus; sons and daughters who can even move Jesus to the bone, who can comprehend the world of hope that Jesus desires, who can make God rest and who can bow to Him.

Jesus longed for family members who can bow to God alongside of him. He fought for two thousand years to establish that standard on earth. God sent Jesus so that He could watch mankind living together with Jesus. We must ask ourselves whether we have become people with hearts bursting with the desire to go over the level of the individual, go over the sorrow of the people, go over the hill of worldwide sorrow and connect with Heaven for this purpose. Whether we have that heart or not will determine whether we attend Jesus correctly and whether we will be able to support Jesus to become the Jesus God wanted to find.

Prayer

Father! We are unworthy to receive Your grace. As time passes, man should discover more and more that he is unworthy and weep bitterly about the sorrow of Heaven. But the love of Heaven remains the love of Heaven, and the heart of the people remains only as the heart of the people. Each person goes through a course of life where he fights with others and lives an upside down life. Please forgive us.

We realize that Jesus established a connection of rejoicing, centering on the love of Heaven, going over the love of men. We beseech You that we may become Jesus’ true disciples, true family, true children, and true brides who can find that relationship with Heaven.

In that way we can support Jesus whom You wanted to establish. We can dissolve Jesus’ historical sorrow, and we can cleanse the mistakes of the generations of our ancestors in one generation. We pray that we can become family members of Heaven and children of Heaven who attend Jesus with this attitude.

Father, if what we feel began from Heaven, let it not disappear from our mind for eternity. Let it linger in our heads forever. Let that life force stay with us. If we must surely go this way, please guide us vertically, transcending time and space. Please take direct control over us.

Be with us forever with Your words. Bless us that in the course of battle to win victory we can keep pace with the providence; that we can give our utmost effort and devote our utmost loyalty to You. I pray all these things in the name of Christ our Lord. Amen. 

He Will Prosper Without His Knowing How He Did It

Jesus Whom God Wanted To Find

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
October 18, 1959

Matthew 23:29-39

The world of heart transcends the distance of history. It transcends time and space. No matter how great an authority is or how fearful a power, it cannot block that road of love. Even the highest mountain and the whole of Heaven and earth cannot block that love. In traveling that path of heart, there cannot be any obstruction.

The central being of heart is Jesus. Therefore, he said that love will survive to the end. Because Jesus came representing God’s heart and lived in the world of the heart, his influence today is expanding. Only by becoming a group who can say that Jesus’ heart is our heart, that his mind is our mind, that we cannot separate from him for eternity can we go over any condition of the secular world with him. Then we can become his disciples and family. In the early church, Jesus’ disciples could not become members of his family. The most important problem that we must solve in this hour is to ask whether we have become people who can freely go over that boundary line into being of Jesus’ family; who can go over any obstacle and go forward for Jesus’ sake.

Where will Jesus, whom God wanted to establish, go? Where will Jesus, whom God wanted to establish on earth, stand? If this is not solved, Jesus will have nowhere to stand. Jesus, who is supposed to come to earth, will have nowhere to stand. He must come and do the will of God, but he will not have any companion. They will kill him again. They will drive him to the cross again. They will cause him anguish again. That is why we must go through the heart of the family, the heart of children, and the heart of a bride. We must be filled with longing. Since the day of promise has yet to come, we must be filled with longing and possess a desperate heart. If a person can master his feelings, transcend any awareness or any concept and experience a certain force that leads him in one direction with infinite power, he will enter the Kingdom of Heaven without fail.

Jesus came two thousand years ago. He came to this earth. But who met Jesus? A person might have met Jesus centering on Jesus himself. But there was no one who met the Jesus who had crossed over the level of the individual, then the family, then the society, then the nation and the world and who could rule over all of Heaven and earth. In order to solve this kind of problem, you must be filled with a certain heart. You cannot solve this problem without entering the world of the heart. If there were something that could solve that problem, if there were something that could move your heart, you would be pulled into it. If you see a person coming out of a church totally vexed, do not go to that church again.

Our mind seeks the world of the heart. Even radio waves do not just operate anywhere. They operate where there is a receiver. They operate where there is a reciprocal relationship. It is the same with people. If there is a person with a true conscience, a true loving standard, and a foundation of Heaven’s heart, then wherever or whenever he goes and even in an unfair and sorrowful place, he will have a way to survive and prosper without his knowing how he did it. He will prosper even when he is misunderstood. That prosperous way does not come about in a comfortable place. No one achieved an historical revolution, an historical discovery, or an historical success in a comfortable place. They began from a place where they met with death face to face. God comes to you in that place.

Therefore, when someone is about to face God, he will meet an incident. He will collide with a material problem, a problem with other people and a problem of the heart. At that time if he can turn and shout, “This is the path I will go” and goes forward, he will be able to lead people who are agonizing over numerous problems and affairs. Jesus was able to do that. When he was helping with the carpentry work of Joseph, he did not lead a comfortable life. His heart passed through a course of infinite hardship and sorrow. In a course that was historical, connected to the age and connected to the future, he crossed over in his mind all the hills of hardship and pain that mankind had gone through. Because he was able to establish a victorious standard in a showdown against Satan, he could proclaim that he was the Messiah. This is not written in the Bible.

Richard: I have to say that this year Stacey and I collided with adversity. Both of us literally faced life and death situations, and God brought us through. Praise to God, and our thanks to all of our friends and supporters!

What is the universe? It is an expan-
sion of the family. If you look at a fam-
ily that has completely realized the ideal
of family love, it has a top, middle and
bottom (parents, husband and wife, and
children), left and right, and front and
back. This is the principle. So when we
talk about top and bottom we mean the
parents and children, when we talk about
left and right we mean the husband and
wife, and when we talk about front and
back we mean the brothers and sisters.
Through what do they all become one? It
doesn’t happen through power, knowl-
edge or money. Then what can bring
it about? It is love. This is an absolute
truth. Otherwise the sphere cannot be
formed. Then what are the top, middle
and bottom in our family? They are a
textbook of love. They are a textbook of
love through which we can encounter
universal love. Go out into society and
put it into practice. How should we love?
Jesus said, “Love your neighbor as your-
Book 4 • True Family 442
self.” How should we follow this teach-
ing? We are not sure. When you go out
into the world and meet a grandfather,
treat him as your own grandfather. Treat
people like your own mothers, like your
own fathers or like your own sons. When
you go out into the world you should all
live like this. The people of the top, mid-
dle and bottom, front and back, and left
and right are all displayed in the exhibi-
tion hall of the world. You should know
that the world is an exhibition of people.
If you can love everyone with such love,
God will dwell in the midst of that love.
(128-22, 1983.5.29)

Members of the Unification Church
will be able to register their names in
the not too distant future. The day when
North and South Korea are united as one
nation, in which God can take delight,
will be the day on which you can be reg-
istered. When such a day dawns, even if
you are blind or have an impaired voice
or a deformed arm, if you were blessed
first, you would be considered the elder.
You would be the elder sister-in-law. If
you were blessed later, you would have
to serve a person with an impaired voice
and deformed arm as your elder, even if
you are older and a college graduate.
Such a day is coming. Therefore, when
that time comes, all these special condi-
tions of attendance will become impor-
tant factors that will decide between
success and failure. (58-113, 1972.6.6)

Jesus Whom God Wanted To Find

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
October 18, 1959

Matthew 23:29-39

Jesus wants sons and daughters to appear on this earth whom he can bless and who can receive his blessing as he says, “My beloved! I have worked hard for two thousand years to find sons and daughters like you on earth. My death was for that purpose, and the hardship and pain I suffered were also for that purpose. Now that I’ve found you, I’ll pray to God to give you the blessing of Heaven and earth.”

If there is that kind of person on this earth, he will be filled with longing to see Jesus, who has not appeared yet. He will not be able to look at the world without tears. He will be filled with sorrow, pain and anguish. He will be filled with sorrow when he looks at Heaven and earth. He will think that he has the responsibility to remove the anguish of Heaven and earth. He will call on the Lord, feeling unworthy even after sacrificing everything he has. This kind of person is very close to Heaven.

When Jesus was carrying the cross, his mother was heart-stricken and shed so many tears, following him. In the same way, when you think of Jesus, he who suffers for us even today, your eyes should be filled with tears. You should be filled with pain deep down in your bone marrow and flesh, pain that constricts your chest. You should say in every situation, when seeing something or feeling something, “I am unworthy. I am sorry.” Is there anyone who has this kind of heart on this earth? No. Jesus stood in front of Heaven, saying, “If this race has sinned, forgive them with me as the offering. If the world has sinned, forgive them with me as the offering.” Heaven is longing for a brother of Jesus to appear who can present himself to Jesus in the same way.

Heaven wants to see Jesus rejoice with his family. Jesus longs for the place where he can say, “My beloved bride, my beloved children, my beloved brother, my beloved kin! I have fulfilled my desire; therefore, let us rejoice. Let us rejoice with Heaven and earth, with history and with the age. Let us rejoice for the future. Heavenly Father, bless us.” He must come to earth in order to find that place. But he could not, and so he prays in the spiritual world. We must know this pain that he suffers.

He is not alien to us. He worked for us. He suffered mistreatment for us. He died for us. Even in the secular world, people cry and shed tears for their older or younger brother. Then if the prince of Heaven has come to this earth, died in order to make the most lowly people into his brothers, can anyone not come to him, not cry for him? When will Jesus come and cleanse the great sorrow in his heart, saying, “My beloved bride, my beloved sons and daughters, my beloved brothers”? When he can cleanse that sorrow, the desire of Heaven, the desire of Jesus and the desire of humankind will be fulfilled.

If there is a family member of Heaven, he is probably isolated from the world. If there are sons and daughters of Heaven, they are probably ones who are hated by the secular world. You are responsible for annihilating the enemy’s nation and the city of Satan. Therefore, you will be persecuted in the family when you enter a family. You will be persecuted by the society when you go out to the society. You will experience the sorrow of receiving persecution that the nation and world, Heaven and earth, and spiritual world will mobilize. Jesus received the same persecution. God received that persecution, and people who died for Heaven received that persecution. Therefore, the historical hill of sorrow also waits in front of us. We can attend Jesus after going over that hill. Therefore, Jesus comes to become friends with people in that kind of persecuted place. Troubled by pangs of conscience for rejecting and killing Jesus, one should be able to say, “Lord! I am totally grateful for Your infinite grace.” Jesus is longing for and looking for a group, a church, a nation and a world that can say, “We are grateful that you have granted us the right to participate in the path where generations of our ancestors shed blood, to participate in the path of the future.”

You can sacrifice your bones and flesh in order to find a lost child even in the world of human love. How about the heart of Jesus, who came representing the love of Heaven? Let us compare the most loving relationship that a person has in the human world and the relationship between God, Jesus and I. The relationship between God, Jesus and I must be greater than the most loving relationship between myself and any other person.

Romans 4

Are these blessings meant for circumcised people or for those who are not circumcised? Well, the Scriptures say that God accepted Abraham because Abraham had faith in him. 10 But when did this happen? Was it before or after Abraham was circumcised? Of course, it was before.

11 Abraham let himself be circumcised to show that he had been accepted because of his faith even before he was circumcised. This makes Abraham the father of all who are acceptable to God because of their faith, even though they are not circumcised. 12 This also makes Abraham the father of everyone who is circumcised and has faith in God, as Abraham did before he was circumcised.

Richard: Paul is saying here that not only Jews (who are circumcised), or existing followers of Rev. Moon, in the current age, will be accepted by God. All those who faithfully adhere to God’s Words and teachings (the Eight Sacred Texts and the teaching of abstinence before marriage and faithfulness in Blessed marriage in the current age) will be blessed and justified.

2 Chronicles 9

15 Solomon made two hundred gold shields that weighed about seven and a half pounds each. 16 He also made three hundred smaller gold shields that weighed almost four pounds, and he put these shields in his palace in Forest Hall.

Jesus Whom God Wanted To Find

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
October 18, 1959

Matthew 23:29-39

The time is coming for us to prepare our minds and bodies. A person should not do this preparation for himself. People who are spiritually experienced pray for themselves only at the end of their prayer. When someone prays in a spiritual state, he should first pray for God. Since it is time to meet the owner, he must pray for the well-being of the owner. Then he must pray for Jesus. When someone prays for God, he will know the historical heart of God. If he prays for Jesus, he will know the historical heart of Jesus. Then he must pray for the numerous people in Christianity who have fought for the will of God until now.

Searching through the footsteps of so many prophets from Adam’s time until now, a person should pray, “Let me become an offering to liberate them.” Then he should be able to shed tears, saying to the prophets, “I know that your sorrow still survives on earth. I want to liberate that sorrow; therefore, please support me.” After that he should pray for his sons and daughters and then for himself. That is the law of Heaven.

Before he prayed for his people, Jesus prayed for the Father. For thirty years of his life, Jesus comforted God and prayed for Him, saying, “Heavenly Father! How sorrowful You must be.” Then he prayed for the numerous prophets. “I was sent as the representative of your longings, your prophecies, your promises. I will do my utmost to live up to the standard that you have desired.”

Jesus prayed for the age with a historical heart. He prayed for Israel, which had departed from the will of God. He prayed for the Jewish faith, which did not know the will of God. He prayed for John the Baptist, who did not follow him even after testifying on his behalf. Jesus never prayed for himself. Jesus prayed, “Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me. But do as You will, not as I will,” and he passed away without fulfilling his desire.

In the Last Days Jesus can pray for himself. The Last Days are when Jesus can praise himself. The day when Jesus’ sorrow dissolves and he comforts and returns glory to God with his heart full of joy is the Last Day. Jesus has not seen that day. He could not welcome that day because of you, because of humankind, and because of Heaven and earth. This is how miserable he is.

After seeing that our ancestors had this kind of fate, it is inappropriate to pray, “Please save me.” That is not right. I don’t know how you pray, but I do not pray like that. The prophets shed tears for the suffering of their race. Jesus cried for his people. Jesus shed tears for the Jewish faith. Therefore, if there is a person who is living the right course of faith, he should shed tears for the world, shed tears for Heaven and earth, shed tears for his race, shed tears for the church, shed tears for his family members, then at the end pray, “Give me the responsibility.”

No one knows the situation of Heaven, which has not yet welcomed the one day of liberation, the day of fulfillment. Even though many say that they are seeking the will of God, no one knows the heart of Heaven and gives his utmost to uphold that will.

Now even if everything is taken away from us and even if the world rejects us and we are in the most miserable situation, if we can become a brother of Jesus whom he recognizes, a member of his family whom he acknowledges, his bride whom he recognizes, and his children whom he recognizes, then we will have fulfilled our highest desire.

When Jesus died and ascended into
Heaven, he gave Peter the keys to Heav-
en. Rev. Moon is giving you the keys to
Book 13 • Restoration of the True God’s Homeland 2026
Heaven while he is still alive. I am not
giving them to you so you can save indi-
viduals, but I am giving you the keys
that can save tribes. I am not a person
who saves individuals.
You are becoming Messiahs. Home
Church messiahship is not just some
futile theory. Things are set up on earth
so that they can go straight to the spirit
world, just the way they are. The efforts
each of you make, determines who can
dig up the most diamonds from the
mouth of the diamond mine of the uni-
verse. The members of the Unification
Church are the ones who are excavat-
ing the diamond mine of the universe.
We are doing it through Home Church.
There are difficulties, but the question
is, who can dig up the most diamonds?
(102-217, 1978.12.31)

Richard: Home Church is the way that the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth is established.

Cheong Seong Gyeong 1931

When we look at the stream of devel-
opment of civilization in human history,
the ancient civilizations that emerged in
the river valleys, passed to the Mediter-
ranean Sea, including Greece, Rome,
and the Iberian Peninsula. Then they
developed through the European con-
tinent, including Germany and France,
and bore fruit as a Judeo-Christian cul-
ture in the form of the Atlantic civiliza-
tion centered on Great Britain, an island
nation. Afterwards, civilization passed
westward through the North American
continent, and presently we have the era
of the Pacific Ocean centered on Japan,
an island nation. This represents the
expansion of the Judeo-Christian civi-
lization into Asia.
When we recognize this kind of
movement of civilizations in light of
God’s providence, we can see that the
island nation that has been placed in the
center of heavenly fortune today is none
other than Japan. At the conclusion of
the 20th century, Japan has come to
stand in the limelight of human history
in God’s providence. Therefore, Japan’s
current prosperity cannot be explained
without considering her relationship to
the Judeo-Christian providence of God.
If Japan has a role in God’s plan, atten-
tion should be paid to the providential
mission that Japan bears. It is because
the purpose of God’s providence is the
realization of world peace. World peace
is the very hope for all humankind.
There can be no better hope for
human society than if the island nations
around the world get together here and
commit themselves to a federation of
nations for the creation of world peace.
It is with this expectation and ideal that
I established the Federation of Island
Nations. I cannot but hope that the real-
ization of world peace will come true
as the island nations all over the world
inherit the heavenly fortune which was
given by God to Japan, and form a group
of nations dedicating their collective will
to the pursuit of world peace.

Jesus Whom God Wanted To Find

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
October 18, 1959

Matthew 23:29-39

The apostles who did not know the historic heart of Jesus betrayed him. They betrayed Jesus who moved according to the historical will. They did not know him and betrayed the man who moved with the will of the future in his heart. Therefore, for us to block and cleanse this history of betrayal, we must become younger brothers and sisters of Jesus, and we must become brides whom Jesus can love. We must become Jesus’ family members who are able to live eternally with him. If not, you should at least become a citizen who can fight on Jesus’ side on the battlefield.

God sought members for Jesus’ family. After sending Jesus to humankind, God looked for people who could become Jesus’ younger brothers and sisters and who could become members of Jesus’ family. Heaven wanted this and had worked hard to accomplish it for four thousand years. Joseph’s family should have loved Jesus and lived with him with the will of God through life or death. Joseph and Mary should have reached the level of the bride before Jesus arrived, but they didn’t. Among Jesus’ younger brothers, there were none who said, “Brother, where are you going? I will go with you.” What happened in the Gospel of John? Jesus’ brothers and sisters did not understand or believe in Jesus. (John 7:1-9) Moreover, did John the Baptist, who testified that the Holy Spirit came down as a dove from Heaven and manifested herself upon Jesus, ask, “My Lord! Where do you wish to go?” Did he ask, “My Lord! Where do you wish to live?” Did the chosen people of Israel ask that? Because no one asked Jesus these questions, he went to the spiritual world carrying much sorrow.

The Last Days are the time of removing this sorrow. The day when Jesus resolves this unresolved sorrow is the judgment day. Those who want to survive the Last Days, open your minds, and examine yourself with a composed heart. Have I become someone who can find that Jesus of God’s hope? Am I qualified to become a member of Jesus’ family? Am I qualified to become a citizen of the nation of that ideology? You do not know that Jesus is praying with this kind of an anxious heart.

We who are gathered here are traveling a difficult road. We are pioneering that road. We are doing things that never existed in history. We are saying words that are not in the New Testament. We are experiencing truths that spiritual people have not experienced. Our purpose is to become members of Jesus’ family, members of his tribe and citizens who can dwell in his bosom. We have gathered here to fulfill that purpose.

Who should stand closest to Jesus? His bride, his siblings and children, that is, his family should stand closest to him. This is the family God longs for. This is the family Jesus sought. It is the historical desire of God to set up this family on earth. In order to fulfill that desire, we must become Jesus’ siblings, his children and his brides. At least we should enter his tribe. In that way we can join the 144,000.

God and Jesus were miserable. Our ancestors also were miserable. They passed away one by one, but they could not hail the day of liberation. The day of liberation was lost. Our ancestors followed God’s will, dying without seeing the day of liberation. We must know all the facts of sorrow, and we should be able to attend Jesus whom God sought, whom God wanted to establish, and whom we want to attend.

We are following the providential course. If we look at the history of the Korean people, we know that they were a pitiable people. Despite the fact that they went through so much misery, world attention is centering on these people. Moreover, Christianity today is turning around centering on these people.

Judges 3

These are the nations the Lord left to test all those Israelites who had not experienced any of the wars in Canaan (he did this only to teach warfare to the descendants of the Israelites who had not had previous battle experience): the five rulers of the Philistines, all the Canaanites, the Sidonians, and the Hivites living in the Lebanon mountains from Mount Baal Hermon to Lebo Hamath. They were left to test the Israelites to see whether they would obey the Lord’s commands, which he had given their ancestors through Moses.

The Israelites lived among the Canaanites, Hittites, Amorites, Perizzites, Hivites and Jebusites. They took their daughters in marriage and gave their own daughters to their sons, and served their gods.

The Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord; they forgot the Lord their God and served the Baals and the Asherahs. The anger of the Lord burned against Israel so that he sold them into the hands of Cushan-Rishathaim king of Aram Naharaim,[a] to whom the Israelites were subject for eight years. But when they cried out to the Lord, he raised up for them a deliverer, Othniel son of Kenaz, Caleb’s younger brother, who saved them. 10 The Spirit of the Lord came on him, so that he became Israel’s judge[b] and went to war. The Lord gave Cushan-Rishathaim king of Aram into the hands of Othniel, who overpowered him. 11 So the land had peace for forty years, until Othniel son of Kenaz died.

Richard: There could be a parallel here. As a nation, we have turned far away from God. So could the troubles we are experienceing as a nation be a way for us to give penance? Could President Trump be someone God has inspired to fight against the corruption of “the swamp”, and help bring the nation back to a closer alignment with God?

1 Chronicle 5

23 The people of the half-tribe of Manasseh were numerous; they settled in the land from Bashan to Baal Hermon, that is, to Senir (Mount Hermon).

24 These were the heads of their families: Epher, Ishi, Eliel, Azriel, Jeremiah, Hodaviah and Jahdiel. They were brave warriors, famous men, and heads of their families. 25 But they were unfaithful to the God of their ancestors and prostituted themselves to the gods of the peoples of the land, whom God had destroyed before them. 26 So the God of Israel stirred up the spirit of Pul king of Assyria (that is, Tiglath-Pileser king of Assyria), who took the Reubenites, the Gadites and the half-tribe of Manasseh into exile. He took them to Halah, Habor, Hara and the river of Gozan, where they are to this day.

Richard: Interestingly, God repeats his warning in the first reading; the nation and the people suffer due to unrighteousness in the eyes of God.

Jesus Whom God Wanted To Find

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
October 18, 1959

Matthew 23:29-39

What is the sorrow of Jesus? Where did the three disciples who were with Jesus in the hills of Gethsemane go? Where did his beloved parents and younger siblings go? Jesus longed for them all. If Jesus’ tribe had attended him centering on Joseph’s family, Jesus would not have died, but he was chased out by his family, by John the Baptist whom God had prepared, by the religious body, by the race, and by his disciples. Thus, he had to die. Without knowing these circumstances, people say that Jesus came to die. If what I say is true, people who have been believing that Jesus came to die are crucifying Jesus a second time.

Jesus is looking for people. He is seeking beloved younger brothers and sisters. Where did my beloved parents go? Where are my brothers? Where are my relatives? Where is my tribe? Where is my church? Where is my religion? In order to dissolve this sorrow, Jesus has been praying for two thousand years, “Heavenly Father, please forgive us again. I did not complete my mission as the representative of the world. I did not complete my mission to lead the Israelites. I did not complete my mission to lead the church. I did not complete my mission to lead the tribe and family. Therefore, please forgive us.” This is the truth.

What is the sadness of God? When God saw that Jesus was being betrayed by his own blood brothers, how much did He grieve? When God saw that even Jesus’ parents, who had brought him up, did not know him but separated themselves from him, how much did God grieve? After preparing for thousands of years, God sent Jesus to Joseph’s tribe. What did He feel when that tribe, which was supposed to rejoice and attend Jesus, betrayed him? What did God feel when the Jewish religion expelled Jesus? What did He feel when the Israelites betrayed Jesus? You should realize that God’s heart burst in pain when Jesus was rejected by individuals, by his brothers and sisters, by his family, by the people He had prepared, by the church, by society and by the nation.

God promised to send Jesus again. He will surely come, and he will take responsibility for this age. You who are facing the Last Days share the common fate of attending the one who comes. If the age of attending him is coming, what frame of mind should you have in order to attend him? You cannot attend him by merely believing in the Bible. When Jesus came the people of his time believed only in the Old Testament and thus failed to attend him. Moreover, you cannot attend him just by blindly believing in God. People failed to attend the prophets in the Old Testament age as well as in the New Testament age. Who is to say that the same thing will not happen in this age? We must reach the position of sons and daughters. We must become a family of Jesus. Without that we cannot attend Jesus.

Thus, we must be sons and daughters of the historical God. We must reach the position of binding a relationship with God’s heart. In this age do you think you will enter the Kingdom of Heaven just by going to Church with a Bible in your hands? Let’s see where you will go. I have often seen this kind of image. Ministers who have been boasting that they will go to the Kingdom of Heaven are in a desolate place spiritually. There are lots of people like that. Do not boast. Even if they are devoted to making their church prosper, it doesn’t mean that they are sons and daughters of God. Even if people respect you, saying that you have a Ph.D., it doesn’t mean that you are a son or daughter of God.

Similarly, if even the apostles could not become Jesus’ sons and daughters or his family members, who among the people on earth would be able to claim that he or she is Jesus’ son or daughter, that he is Jesus’ brother or sister? Why couldn’t the apostles take those positions? It is because they did not recognize the historical Jesus. They did not recognize the Jesus of the age.

Thus, for us to become his sons or daughters today, we must know the God of the six thousand years of history. We must know the historical Jesus. We must believe in the God of the age, who is leading the 2.7 billion people who comprise mankind. We must believe in the Jesus of the age. Moreover, we must believe in the Jesus of the future, the future that is unfolding from this moment into a form that is 180 degrees different from what we now know. Do you think that Jesus will come and lead people just the way they are? No. He will overturn them. At that time the spoken words, the written words, and everything will be different. That is the essential point here. You must become a better disciple than the apostles were, a better bride than the apostles, and a better brother to Jesus than the apostles were.
