Only a True Person, the Messiah, can End the Battle between God and Satan

Furthermore, only when we establish True Parents’ Day throughout all of heaven and earth will the sorrow of restoration be completely removed. Even though we have established True Parents’ Day and True Children’s Day, we have not established True Parents’ Day on the levels of an individual, a family, a people, a nation, the world and the cosmos. The same is true for True Children’s Day, and for the Day of All True Things. Only when we have developed to the point where we can be governed by the standard in which True Parents’ Day, True Children’s Day, and the Day of All True Things have globally triumphed will God’s original purpose of creation be completed. Only then will True Parents’ Day finally become True Parents’ Day for all humankind and at the same time True Parents’ Day for Heaven itself. In the same way, True Children’s Day and the Day of All True Things will be True Children’s Day and the Day of All True Things both for all humankind and for Heaven. When we have reached such a position, then the time will have finally come when God can say that everything has finally been accomplished. We must establish True Parents’ Day, True Children’s Day and the Day of All True Things on all levels from the individual, through the family, peoples and nations. Only when we have established these days on the level of one nation can they become the central days of the nation and of the entire world. This is the issue. (13-294, 1964.4.12)

    Originally, if people had not fallen, they would have passed into the spirit world with the qualification of owners or sons centered on love based on the family foundation. That is where the realm of dominion based on accomplishments through the Principle and the realm of direct dominion are unified with that of True Parents’ heart. By the Principle one cannot go to heaven without this foundation.
    Since Jesus and Christians went to spirit world without reaching that point, until now they have all remained in the middle realm of the spirit world. With Heung-jin passing, however, a central point was established where they could be engrafted to God. Since Heung-jin received the Blessing and his spouse is still on earth, he can stand in the same position as having a family in his lifetime.
    Thus, centering on Heung-jin’s family, the spiritual foundation on which one can visit one’s family on earth has been established. This is precious. The establishment of Heung-jin’s family is precious.
    If such work could have been done, despite Jesus’ death, Christianity would not have needed to sacrifice as it did until now. Yet there has been no other way. Why? Jesus had to go to the other world and return because, within the realm of True Parents’ heart, separation from Satan could not be done within the realm of dominion based on accomplishments through the Principle; and because the foundation of love was not established within the realm of direct dominion.

Richard:  Heung-jin is the second son of Father and Mother Moon.  He died at the age of 17 on Jan 2, 1984 after a car accident on an icy road while maneuvering the car to save the life of his friend in the passenger seat.

The Messiah and True Parents

Section 2. The Messiah, the True Parent

2.3. The mission of the Messiah

    What is the purpose of the Messiah? It is to complete the vertical foundation and bring forth the horizontal foundation. Then, who is the Messiah? The Messiah is the one who comes with a firm grasp of the fundamental plan for attaining the individual, family, national, and global standards of vertical completion. He does so by uniting to the vertical standard everything connected to the heavenly way and the public purpose that God and humankind must pursue. (71-79, 1974.04.28)

    There are two beings in the universe who claim to be great – God and Satan. These masters of good and evil are fighting against each other. They are waging a battle of good and evil over human beings.
    To what degree is Satan extraordinary? According to anthropologists, human beings have lived on earth for one and a half million years. Throughout this time, Satan, as the overall commander leading the battle on the evil side, has inflicted heavy casualties upon God’s side and has bound Him fast. This is why I am teaching about Satan’s extraordinary power.
    Who should end this battle? Neither God nor Satan can end it. You must be hearing this for the first time. Who can bring to an end the fight between the evil spirits and good spirits? Neither God nor Satan can. Then, who can put an end to it? Only a true person can end the battle. Without being a central figure of love who can be followed by all people, the true person cannot end the fight between God and Satan. As long as we are not liberated from this fight, future peace will be an impossible dream for the world, and ideals will be nothing but abstract, sentimental concepts.
    Then, who can resolve this fight? For this task God has sent a representative. This is the typical concept of the Messiah. The Savior is the person who liberates not only people but also God. In addition, he punishes evil. The one responsible for the overall task of liberating God and liquidating evil is the Savior.
    The character se (世) in Savior (guse-ju) refers to the world. God gave His only begotten son because He loved the world, not because He loved Christianity. Many Christians memorize John 3:16 and repeat it over and over! It does not say that God so loved Christianity that He gave His only begotten son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life. It says that God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son. What is the mission of the Savior? It is to liberate God and punish Satan. Who will get rid of this bitter enemy who has sunk his teeth into human beings and is accusing them so viciously? God cannot get rid of him. Only the Messiah, the Savior, can do that! (136-219, 1985.12.29)

    What will the Messiah do when he comes? He comes as the commander, who for the first time in history, will lead the battle to regain the sovereignty, territory, and citizenry of a nation and, on that basis, take back the world of God’s creation. This is the mission of the Messiah.
    In subjugating Satan, it is not enough just to defeat a nation. Since Satan also has global sovereignty, we must strip him of that global sovereignty as well. Only then will the realm of liberation unfold on this earth.
    God created the Garden of Eden as a garden of freedom and peace. If there is any shadow of Satan’s opposition anywhere on earth, the ideal of that garden will not be realized. The Kingdom of Heaven on earth will be completed only when the shadows of Satan’s antagonism have disappeared from the earth. We can start the liberation movement in the spirit world only when this task is completed on earth. This is the path the members of the Unification Church should follow. (57-128, 1972.5.29)

    What is the task of the Messiah? On the individual level, he has to subjugate Satan and eradicate Satan’s lineage, thereby paving the victorious road for the individual. He must then pave the road of victory on the levels of the family, nation, and world. This is the path the Messiah must walk. In other words: first, he must pave the road for individuals; second, he must pave the road for families; third, he must pave the road for nations; and fourth, he must pave the road for the world.
    After the Messiah wins the individual victory, Satan will mobilize worldwide. The nations and the democratic world will join forces to attack him; he must fight against them and win. He must do this on the family and worldwide levels. In other words, he must win just as Jacob prevailed over the angel and just as Abel should have succeeded over Cain. This is a one-on-one fight. Now, all of Satan’s world must be struck, and for this a representative nation is needed at the front. This nation is Korea. (54-197, 1972.03.24)
