The Messiah Comes as a Parent to Find His Bride

What kind of person is God? He is omniscient, omnipotent, omnipresent, and could destroy or save the world with just one word. But we do not need this kind of God. What kind of God does our original mind desire? We would desire someone about whom we can say: “I cannot but love Him more than my own father and mother. Even if we have a righteous king or president in our country, He is even higher than they are.” Presidents are changed every four years; they are good and bad, and thus difficult to respect. (147-271, 1986.10.1)

Now everyone has to know about the Unification Church. It has become such a matter of common knowledge that those who are ignorant of it would be considered as having no common sense. It is true. People who haven’t heard of the Unification Church would be considered to be good-for-nothings. You will experience this all too well if you go abroad. If they ask you where you are from and you answer, “Korea!” they will automatically ask you, “What is this I hear about the 30,000-Couple wedding?” If you were not present at the ceremony, you should say at the very least, “I saw it on television.” If they ask you, “How was it?” you cannot just say, “It was magnificent!” and stop there. When they ask you, “So it was magnificent, but who was there?” you would have to describe to them every aspect of the ceremony, wouldn’t you? The same is true for me

The Messiah and True Parents

Section 4. The Second Coming and the True Parents
4.1. We need to prepare to receive the Messiah

    The place you are meant to live in is the Kingdom of Heaven. But are you living there now? No! What is more, the Kingdom of Heaven does not come immediately. Then, what should come before the appearance of the heavenly kingdom? The Messiah should come. But the Messiah alone will not do. Although Jesus came to the Jewish nation, the nation of Israel, the Kingdom of Heaven did not emerge.
    Before the appearance of the heavenly kingdom, the heavenly kingdom people must appear. What should be done in order that a heavenly kingdom people arises? A people does not come into being all of a sudden. A special clan must appear, and this clan must move that people. What should be done so that the clan appears? There has to be an extended family of close relatives. What should be done so that these close relatives appear? A family must appear as the center of these close relatives. Then, what should be done so that the family appears? There have to be children and parents. Then, what should be done so that children appear? There have to be parents. What should be done so that parents appear? There has to be one man who can represent everything concerning heaven.
    Who is this? He is the Messiah. What should that man do? If he is to be a parent, he must find a partner and be one with her. This is the teaching of Christianity. When this happens, it will be the Last Days. Thus, what was upside down has now been spiritually restored over the past two thousand years centering on Jesus, on the foundation of global Christianity. Based on the spiritual aspect of Christianity, when people meet the Messiah, all these things will be completed at that time.
    At the Second Coming, the Lord will come and right all things to what they were originally meant to be. In this way, the world must be one and nations must be one: everything must be one. This will happen. Within a country, the Christian denominations must be one, and among denominations the overall leaders must be united. This has to happen. In order for the denominations to be one, their leaders must be one. These leaders must be united among themselves and be one with Jesus. So when they receive Jesus and become one with him, the world will be easily restored. God has been preparing for this for two thousand years. Since this unity did not come about at the proper time, we have had to prepare all over again. (66-277, 1973.05.16)
