Adam’s position was like that of the only son – the eternal, only begotten son, not merely the only son after seven generations. Can you imagine how profoundly God’s heart was broken at the death of Adam, who was to establish an everlasting family and accomplish God’s great endeavor of Creation? How would He feel that everything had gone wrong in the way it did? Even after six thousand years, God has not recovered from the shock of Adam and Eve’s Fall. (20-210, 1968.6.9)

Why was I brought into this world? Why do I have to live? Where am I heading? You should never allow yourself to think that you were born by your own will. You were born into this world, yet you do not know the source and purpose behind your birth. You are ignorant of the motivation and purpose of your being. In other words, we were born in spite of our wishes. We live notwithstanding our wishes, and we die not- withstanding our wishes. Then what is there to be proud of? We have no control over our birth; we are merely custodians in this life, and we cannot avoid the path of death. Thus, any attempt to take pride in ourselves is pitiable. Once born, we are destined to live and destined to die. (7-178, 1959.9.6)

Prophets and Messengers

4. A Prophet Is Given True Visions of the Future

Surely the Lord God does nothing,
without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets.
    Amos 3.7

Write the vision;
make it plain upon tablets,
so that he may run who reads it.
For still the vision awaits its time;
it hastens to the end—it will not lie.
If it seem slow, wait for it;
it will surely come, it will not delay.
    Habakkuk 2.2-3

O Lord, your power is greater than all powers.
Under your leadership we cannot fear anything.
It is you who has given us prophetic power,
And has enabled us to foresee and interpret everything.
    Dinka Prayer (African Traditional Religion)

It is an attribute of the possession of the absolute true self to be able to foreknow. When a nation or family is about to flourish, there are sure to be lucky omens. When a nation or family is about to perish, there are sure to be signs and prodigies. These things manifest themselves in the instruments of divination and in the agitation of the human body. When happiness or calamity is about to come, it can be known beforehand. When it is good, it can be known beforehand. When it is evil, it can be known beforehand. Therefore he who has real- ized his true self is like a celestial spirit. 
    Doctrine of the Mean 24 (Confucianism)

Nanak, sitting in this city of corpses, sings the Lord’s praise
And enunciates this principle:
He who raised this creation and in manifold
pleasures engaged it,
Sits apart, watching it.
Holy is the Lord, holy His justice;
True shall be the judgment He has pronounced.
As will its body’s vesture be torn to shreds,
India shall remember my word.
In ‘78 they come; in ‘97 they depart—
Another hero shall someday arise.
Nanak utters the word of truth—
Truth he utters; truth the hour calls for.
    Adi Granth, Telang, M.1, p. 722f. (Sikhism)

Teachings of True Father Sun Myung Moon

Fifty years ago I spoke visionary words, for example, that the in the future people could travel the world in a single day. People then ridiculed me as a madman, but they all fell away; some even went crazy. For the past fifty years and throughout my life, I prophesied the rise and fall of the world. I am today’s representative prophet, representative educator and representative loving parent; and I am rising to the position of representative owner. (397:154, November 17, 2002)

I can predict the future of America and the future of Asia. Because we have been doing things that are needed for the distant future, it has been difficult for you to follow, to believe and to act. But with every passing year you are gaining a new understanding of the value of what we do. For decades the Korean people attacked me and persecuted me, but the time that I had been work- ing for has now arrived. Hence, now the Korean people have changed their attitude. (103:110, February 11, 1979)

I predicted that communism could not last beyond 73 years, [and that is precisely what happened]. The disappearance of communism from the face of the earth is not the end of war, however. The more difficult struggle is the struggle between religions. I have been warning more about the danger of religious war—between Islam, Judaism and Christianity. I predicted it more than fifty years ago. (225:19, January 1, 1992)
