You all have a hometown, don’t you? However, where could God’s original homeland be? If God had his original homeland, the clans of that original homeland would form there, and from the clans would come peoples, and from these peoples there would emerge nations and a world. Through this process, the heavenly kingdom on earth would be established. If God had a homeland on earth, would we want to go there or not? We would. People even want to go to their own hometowns where their humble parents and siblings are living. Then, wouldn’t you want to go to God’s original homeland? God’s original homeland is everyone’s homeland. Therefore, someone who says he does not want to go is not being truthful. (23-152, 1969.5.18)

The family encompasses history, the present and the future. So what is the ultimate point that God has sought for six thousand years? It is the family – the family where love is interconnected and where all are united in love. Everything that exists comes under its dominion.
We cannot cut our relationship with this absolute source of love. The establishment of such a family was the original mission that God gave Adam and Eve at the time of creation. God did not want them to merely end up as a man, Adam, and a woman, Eve, but instead dreamed of a new family where they would be united. This is the first starting point towards establishing men and women. Thus to be able to enter the Kingdom of Heaven safely, you have to find a family and within the realm of that family in this world, enter and live in a place where you can feel satisfied in God’s love. Only then can you go beyond this world as well. (30-85, 1970.3.17)
Original Substance of the Divine Principle
The Principle of Restoration
The Second Advent
From the viewpoint of the Principle, Adam and Eve were created with both a physical and spiritual body, but they fell without realizing God’s ideal of creation. Jesus came to restore fallen human beings, but his body was taken by Satan, while his spirit was resurrected. Thus, at the Second Advent, Christ must come in the flesh to restore both body and spirit. See slide 6 below.
Rev. 1:7 talks about coming “with” the clouds. Clouds here refers to the ‘cloud of witnesses’, or devout Christians whose hearts dwell in heaven
Acts 1:11 states that Jesus “will come in the same way as you saw him go into heaven”. In other words, he will come in the flesh, just as Jesus did.
Some Bible versus say that we cannot know the time when Jesus will return. Yet, other versus indicate that we can know, if we are awake and wise.
