We have to step forward in bare feet to build the eternal homeland. Can we save this nation just with what is left over after we have had our fill? Can you spend your energy worrying about what you wear, when you will eat, what you get around on? We have to clear the path and pioneer the way with our bare feet and bare hands. This is the kind of thing that we do in the Unification Church.
    Are you brave soldiers who should stand forward for the establishment of the homeland, or are you failures who bring it down? When we say brave warriors, we mean those who can represent the nation and carry out the things that other people cannot do. We do not use the term brave soldier for the people who do what just anyone can do; they are the rank and file troops. The brave soldier is the one who carries out the mission that his comrades have retreated from or failed to accomplish. The word yong means swift, quick. The brave soldier has to be able to run faster than anyone else, and even to be able to dodge bullets. The term brave soldier is reserved for those who do what no one else can do.

At the time of the 777 Couples Blessing, some parents came to me and requested, “Rev. Moon, my daughter’s name is so-and-so. As you are the founder of the Unification Church, we hope with all of our hearts that you will select a good husband for her.” Since when was I in such a high position? The world has changed. I thought it was still winter, but when I looked, spring had come. I finally find this world worth living in. If I did not have such things to look forward to, what would I live for?

Eschatology and Messianic Hope

The Last Judgement

3. The Transformation of This World and the Renewal of Life in God

On the day when the earth will be changed to other than the earth, and the heavens likewise, and they will come forth unto God, the One, the Almighty…
    Qur’an 14.48
And then when retribution shall come for their
Then, O Wise One, Thy Kingdom shall be
established by Good Thought,
For those who, in fulfillment, deliver evil into
the hands of Truth!
And then may we be those who make life
O Lord, Immortals of the Wise One, and O
Truth, bring your alliance,
That to us your minds may gather where
wisdom would be in dispute!
Then, indeed, shall occur the collapse of the
growth of evil,
Then they shall join the promised reward:
blessed abode of Good Thought,
Of the Wise One, and of Right, they who earn
in good reputation!
    Avesta, Yasna 30.8-10 (Zoroastrianism)
But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a loud noise, and the elements will be dissolved with fire, and the earth and the works that are upon it will be burned up. Since all these things are thus to be dissolved, what sort of persons ought you to be in lives of holiness and godliness, waiting for and hastening the coming of the day of God, because of which the heavens will be kindled and dissolved, and the elements will melt with fire! But according to his promise we wait for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.
    2 Peter 3.10-13
Richard:  The earth will not literally burn up.  See the Exposition of the Divine Principle here, p. 91
Civilization as we know it is only transitory; it will finally pass away as the new age dawns and the true civilization is born. That will mark the end of the “provisional” world we live in today. God wills a reckoning for the old civilization and the establishment of a new one, and the time of His reckoning is at last drawing near.
    Until now evil forces have had wide latitude in civilization, but in the transition from the old to the new, they will be weeded out. All people will go through an inexorable process of cleansing. The world will be terribly afflicted in payment for untold sins gathered over millennia. The great affliction is the sign that all societies and nations are being purified, and it will lift humankind to a new level of existence where good prevails.
    The transition, which is actually upon us now, is the last stage before the beginning of an earthly paradise. In the upheaval, every sphere of life and every corner of civilization will be transformed. Those who believe in God and repent will witness the coming of the new world, and they will be able to start on the road to salvation. But those still heavily burdened with sin and unable to overcome their malicious ways will end this life in absolute misery and may find no salvation in the next.
