Jesus Came to Celebrate the Feast of the Lamb

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1203

When I came out of Danbury prison, I prepared a situation where black and white, united through Jerry Falwell, centered on me. The thief on the right and the thief on the left were fighting with each other, but I united them. This is all restoration through indemnity. That is why during the 120 days (three times four is twelve) following my release from Danbury, all of the world media had to determine their direction. During this period I had to slap the American media on the cheek using the Washington Times. That is why I founded the magazine Insight and another monthly magazine[World & I]. This latter magazine was made to involve professors from all over the world. I think people from the intellectual circles have already made their judgment concerning the Washington Post and the Washington Times. (138-305, 1986.1.24)


“Through the 1970s Unification Church in America experienced a dramatic growth spurt, from a few hundred to over 3,000, in addition to the hundreds of missionaries arriving in the U.S. from Japan and Europe. Parents and public reaction varied from polite positivity to outrage and opposition, and even violent and illegal assaults on adult children who had decided to join up with the revival work of Reverend Moon. Reverend Moon never responded to opposition with public counter-attacks or even explicit self-defense, but rather took proper and necessary steps to preserve the right of his own church to exist in America, to fund-raise and to be protected from deprogramming—the abduction and confinement of believers in order to break their faith.

    “Attacks intensified in the 1980s, culminating in Reverend Moon’s arrest and trial by the U.S. government on charges of tax evasion. Many believe these charges were wholly without merit, and designed for the sole purpose of driving Moon from American soil.[3] At this point, many American Christian leaders saw this prosecution as a threat to the freedom of the clergy in general, and thousands of clergy rallied in support. After he was convicted, the government offered him the option of leaving America as a way to avoid prison time, but Rev. Moon refused, declaring that he would rather endure prison than abandon God’s work in America.
Despite being sentenced, in 1982, to 18 months in prison, of which he served 13 months at the Danbury Correctional facility before being released on good behavior to a halfway house, Reverend Moon sought to love and serve his oppressor by establishing the Washington Times newspaper (1982) and the American Constitution Committee (ACC) (1987)—later to become the American Freedom Coalition and, after the fall of communism, the American Family Coalition (AFC). These and many other organizations, including the Women’s Federation for World Peace (formed 1992), were convened with the the mission to elevate the idealism and dispensational purpose for the democratic world, especially the United States.”

To this day there is no other magazine like the World & I magazine, which was published from 1986 to 2004. The magazine covered an amazing breadth of topics, including book excerpts, world news, culture, science food and so much more. I miss it.

The time will come when you will have to run away from an avalanche of people. The time will come when you will be proud of the fact that you heard about the Blessing from the highest of the Blessed Couples. Between being witnessed to by one of the 30,000 Couples, and one of the 6000 Couples, which do you think would hold more value? The members who have served a long time in the Unification Church will be received warmly wherever they go when they explain about the Blessing. (235-165, 1992.8.29)

The Messiah and True Parents

Section 3. Jesus and the True Parents

    What kind of person is Jesus? Instead of becoming true parents, Adam and Eve fell in the Garden of Eden, becoming false parents and giving birth to false descendants. Jesus, therefore, came as the True Parent to restore all things and establish what should have originally been. Adam and Eve failed to become true husband and wife. At the same time, they failed to become true parents. Since they were unable to become a true couple, they also failed to become a true son and daughter. This is why, if people completely believe in and become one with Jesus, true children can be restored and a true husband and wife and true parents established. This is why it is taught that you should love Jesus the most. (8-109, 1959.11.22)

    The Book of Revelation says that in the Last Days, the Lord will come to the earth to meet his bride. Do you know what the feast of the Lamb is? This refers to the day of the feast when, for the first time in history, one bridegroom and one bride become husband and wife centering on God’s love.
    Through the Fall, instead of becoming good parents, our first ancestors became evil parents. For this reason, the original focus of parents designed by God, which our ancestors should have attained without falling – the standard of the true and good parents – has not appeared or been realized.
    The Bible says: “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” (Rev. 22:13) Due to the Fall, God could not fulfill His purpose at the time of creation. He will complete it as in the Book of Revelation. Then, as what kind of person did Jesus come? Adam fell, so Jesus came as a perfected Adam who could be united with God’s love without falling. This is why First Corinthians 15:45 teaches that “The first man Adam became a living being; the last Adam, became a life-giving spirit.” The Bible designates Jesus as the second Adam. Since the family planned by God cannot be found if the God-given true positions of the son, husband and wife, and parents are not established, they must appear on earth.
    There are many religions on earth, but among them, only Christianity has the concept of following God’s four basic requirements: to become God’s child, to become one body with God, to meet as bride and bridegroom in accordance with God’s will, and to form a new family. Since Jesus came with this thinking, Christianity, centering on Jesus, inevitably became a global religion. (54-108, 1972.03.20)
