What Would You Do with a Diamond Mine?

Cheon Seong Gyeong 995

Let us say that there was a diamond mine. What would you do if there were such a place that only you knew of? You might have to even sacrifice being with your family in order to acquire such a place. It would not be a sin to sacrifice being with your wife in order to save many families. It is also not a sin to sacrifice being with your children in order to save numerous children in the nation. However, you should not sacrifice them to satisfy your own self-interest. The path for saving the nation and a people is that diamond mine; it is the path of life for the people throughout the entire world. In that case, history would not view this as a sin – the sacrifice of your wife and child. It may seem wrong to sacrifice your wife and child to save the nation and world; however, on the contrary, it is there that you will find a wealth of treasure which the whole world can praise.

When balancing the ledger of a store, you have to calculate revenue and expenditure accurately. In balancing the accounts of a mere store, you have to exercise care. However, do you pay as much attention when you balance the accounts of your life? Have you ever even tried to balance the accounts of your life? Have you gone into the red, or are you in the black? If you see red ink, you should lament most grievously. People should be able to sing for joy on their deathbed. If you find yourself struggling to accept the reality of death when face it, that struggle only goes to show that you have lived a life in the red. We should lead our lives in the black in the realm of heart, based on the absolute standard. (19-289, 1968.3.10)

Original Substance of the Divine Principle

The Principle of Restoration

The Period of Preparation for the Second Coming of Christ

The second sub-period of the period of preparation for the second coming of Christ is the period of religious and ideological conflict, from 1648 and ending with the French Revolution in 1789.
God unfolded his providence of restoration through a history of dividing Abel-type and Cain-type groups and peoples  In the Last Days of human history, the world itself will be divided into an Abel-type world and a Cain-type world.
The Cain-type view of life is humanism. Marx and Engels were two of the Cain-type figures of humanism. These views of life fused together atheism and materialism.
The Abel-type view of life is God-centered and culminated in the Protestant Reformation during this period.
