19 Simeon was the second tribe chosen to receive land, and the region for its clans was inside Judah’s borders. 2-6 In one region of Simeon’s tribal land there were the following thirteen towns with their surrounding villages:
Beersheba, Shema,[a] Moladah, Hazar-Shual, Balah, Ezem, Eltolad, Bethul, Hormah, Ziklag, Beth-Marcaboth, Hazar-Susah, Beth-Lebaoth, and Sharuhen.
Richard: The modern tribal area is a Home Church area. “With one turn of that key, the door will open for the salvation of one tribe.”
For three weeks I was in sorrow. 3 I ate no fancy food or meat, I drank no wine, and I put no olive oil on my face or hair.[c] 4 Then, on the twenty-fourth day of the first month,[d] I was standing on the banks of the great Tigris River, 5 when I looked up and saw someone dressed in linen and wearing a solid gold belt.[e] 6 His body was like a precious stone,[f] his face like lightning, his eyes like flaming fires, his arms and legs like polished bronze, and his voice like the roar of a crowd. 7 Although the people who were with me did not see the vision, they became so frightened that they scattered and hid. 8 Only I saw this great vision. I became weak and pale, 9 and at the sound of his voice, I fell facedown in a deep sleep.
Richard: There are many interpretations of Old Testament scriptures, like this one. Fortunately, in this age we have the new words of truth, which clarify God’s Ideal and purpose. These new words of truth are contained in the eight sacred textbooks ( http://visionroot.org/resources/the-eight-books-of-holy-scripture/ ) which we are studying in this Daily Inspiration ministry.
Selected Passages from the Words of Rev. Sun Myung Moon about Home Church
Today’s Word magazine, September 1981 p. 5
Home church is truly our gospel.
an amazing blessing from God.
Through home church you
can find and restore every-
thing. In home church you
meet God, the Messiah,
Cain and Abel, and all
the historical missions
of the providence. It
is a world of wonder.
In home church, you will indemnify everything
that was lost in history-all the things of creation,
all the love and heart that was lost, and all of
God’s personality, which has been lost. (4/14/79)
Home church was supposed to have begun in the
Garden of Eden, with the home as the place of
worshiping God. God should have been the main
beam of the home, with His children dwelling
there in His love. The original concept of God’s
creation began with one man and one woman, who
were supposed to form one family, one nation
and finally one world. Thus. as their family grew,
their home church would have become national
church and eventually world church. This was
Our way of life is like Jacob’s. Initially, his
elder brother wanted to kill him, just as the
Christian world tried to kill the Unification
Church. But when Jaccb finally returned home,
Esau’s heart was changed and he repented. Jacob
loved Esau, p;ave him presents and embraced him,
and the two brothers became one. In the same way,
the world will finally come to embrace you, when
you gain the victory in home church. ( 1/1/79)
Home church has become the Unification
Church trademark and a word with a very special
meaning; to us. Do you feel deep within your
hearts that home church is a necessity? Many
believers and religious people in history have talked
vaguely about heaven without truly knowing how it
could be developed. Jesus announced that the
Kingdom of Heaven was dwelling in the midst of
the people, but even he could not say that it was
here on earth. I would like you to know clearly that
the pronouncement of home church as
a means of establishing the Kingdom
of Heaven here on earth is truly an
historic event. ( 11/7/79)
