Jesus Was Unable to Become the True Parent

The family is a textbook through which you can connect to the heavenly kingdom. It is a textbook for your education. If you apply this family education to the nation, you will be a patriot; if you apply it to the world, you will be a saint; and if you apply it to heaven and earth, you will be God’s divine sons and daughters. (137-77, 1985.12.18)

What does Abel have to do? He has to restore three generations. First, Cain must be restored. Then, parents must be restored. Then God must be liberated. These are the three great missions. In other words, without liberating the satanic world, parents cannot appear. Without liberating the parents, God cannot be liberated. It is Abel’s mission to be responsible for the three realms of liberation. (58-68, 1972.6.6)

Section 1. History and the True Parents

1.4. The providence of restoration has sought the True Parents throughout its history

    In accordance with the original plan originating the Principle of Creation, True Parents are to be physically and spiritually blessed by God. But Jesus was unable to become the true parent due to the disbelief of the people of Israel. Even though he is in the spirit world, Jesus has been preparing the foundation for the attendance of True Parents. What does this mean?  The Lord at the Second Advent should restore the positions of spiritual and physical parents. Knowing this, Jesus has been working in the spirit world for the past two thousand years, laying the foundation upon which the returning Lord can avoid persecution and abuse from the spirit world. Jesus laid the spiritual foundation on the levels of the society, nation, and world. Since Jesus has been working in the spirit world rather than on earth, it is as their spiritual parent that Christians have been relating with Jesus.
    The Lord, on his return to this earth, must inherit from Jesus the individual, family, national and worldwide spiritual foundations that Jesus has built in the spirit world, just as Jesus inherited all the blessing from John the Baptist. Without going this way, he cannot establish the conditions necessary to become the True Parent on earth.
    The basic principle here is to establish on earth the spiritual standard of inheritance. If, as Jesus handed down the spiritual foundation to the returning Lord, the Christians on earth had become one with the returning Lord, the standard of inheritance would have been established on earth. However, as Christians so far have failed to establish such a standard, the spiritual foundation of victory could not be transferred to the coming True Parents in its entirety. Consequently, the returning True Parents have had to go through a history of struggle to again restore both the spiritual and physical standards of inheritance.
    God worked for six thousand years to prepare the foundation for the coming True Parents and to lay the victorious foundation during their lifetime. However, the believers on this earth failed to unite with and follow the instructions of the spiritual parent. Failing to walk in step with these instructions, the standard was not established to bequeath to the returning Lord the spiritual foundation Jesus had prepared.
    In order to become the True Parent, the Lord at his Second Advent had to again face tests on the level of the individual, family, tribe, ethnic people, nation and world in the spiritual realm. Without his prevailing in these tests, and without establishing a standard of internal victory, a standard of substantial victory could not be established on earth. Therefore, the returning Lord inevitably had to carry out an internal battle. (13- 280, 1964.04.12)

Why does God carry out the providence of restoration? It is to establish the original parents – the True Parents. Then, what kind of people are True Parents? True Parents are a physical temple in which God can dwell. You probably do not feel the reality of this. Yet, how great would be their value! But unfortunately, however, there are people who place less value on God than on the personal ornaments they keep on their dressers. Such people are saying to God, “Please give me blessings.” Do you think God’s will can be fulfilled through these people? (22-43, 1963.01.19)
