2 Thessolonians 1

We ought always to thank God for you, brothers and sisters,[b] and rightly so, because your faith is growing more and more, and the love all of you have for one another is increasing. Therefore, among God’s churches we boast about your perseverance and faith in all the persecutions and trials you are enduring.

All this is evidence that God’s judgment is right, and as a result you will be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are suffering. God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with his powerful angels. He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. They will be punished with everlasting destruction and shut out from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of his might 10 on the day he comes to be glorified in his holy people and to be marveled at among all those who have believed. This includes you, because you believed our testimony to you.

Obadiah

13 They are my people,
    and you were cruel to them.
You went through their towns,
sneering
and stealing
    whatever was left.
14 In their time of torment,
    you ambushed refugees
and handed them over
    to their attackers.

15 The day is coming
when I, the Lord,
    will judge the nations.
And, Edom, you will pay in full
    for what you have done.

16 I forced the people of Judah[f]
to drink the wine of my anger
    on my sacred mountain.
Soon the neighboring nations
must drink their fill—
    then vanish without a trace.

World Scripture and the Teachings of
Sun Myung Moon

Part 1
God and Creation

Chapter 1
God
Knowledge of God

Formless, Invisible, Mystery

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

Suppose you could see God with your physical eyes—see Him as He commented on your every
move and every word, and intervened in everything you did. Do you think you could survive even
one day without having a nervous breakdown?
Countless particles are passing through your body at this moment, yet you cannot see or feel
them. How, then, could you ever see the work of the invisible God as He passes right through you?
Rather foolishly saying that you would believe in God if only He showed Himself to you, you should
rather be grateful that He is invisible. (138:168, January 21, 1986)

If God, the great Lord of heaven and earth, were visible to human eyes, people would fight each
other to possess God. There would be no way to stop the battle…
If God were visible, America and the Soviet Union would fight over Him, each claiming that
God was theirs. Who could stop the fighting? The omniscient God stays invisible lest such fights
break out. To wish that God were visible is foolish. It is better that He is not. (41:260)

God alone is absolute, unchanging and eternal. Do you think it is easy for the eternal God to relate
to fallen human beings? Do people have any idea how to relate to Him? (92:299, April 24, 1977)


God’s thoughts, as He leads His Providence, are different from our thoughts, as we encounter the
Providence. This is a problem. How can we, who are immersed in the satanic world, find our way to
God’s Providence? We certainly cannot find the way to fulfill God’s purposes by our own concepts.
Rather, we must understand the world God originally intended and then transform [ourselves and
our world] into God’s world. (161:109, January 11, 1987)


God is formless and invisible. His ideal of creation is to manifest Himself into beings with form.
In fulfilling this purpose, God would not rest content to be a Being visible only to the spirit
world. He would want to be a Being with the substance of the visible world as well. (298:106,
January 1, 1999)


The invisible and formless God is the origin of energy. Yet, to have complete dominion over the
physical world, God needs an instrument that possesses physical form. If Adam had reached perfection without falling, he would have entered the spirit world as fully the image of God. The spirit of
Adam would have become one with the invisible God, and God would have taken on the image of
Adam. Had that come to pass, when Adam laughed, God would be laughing and the entire universe
would be laughing as well.
The process of creation is the projection of the invisible God into physical forms. It is like
a magnet, which needs a south pole as well as a north pole in order to function. There are two
aspects of God, external and internal. Thus, God’s idea was for the invisible God and the visible
God—Adam—to be in harmony. Their give and take would create a circuit. Through their give
and take of love, the internal would become external and the external would become internal, back
and forth, in circular motion. Thus the internal God and the external God would be united as one.
(105:193-94, October 21, 1979)


In the course of history
so many saints and sages have come and gone,
yet none knew the circumstances of Heaven;
none knew the heart of God. 
May we discover the path
to know Heaven’s circumstances
and be familiar with God’s heart:
knowledge revealed as the Last Days draw near. (7:286, October 11, 1959)
