We Belong to True Parents

Cheon Seong Gyeong 201

The person with the responsibility to make the nations one, make the world one, and make heaven and earth one with original love is the Messiah. Can the Messiah actually fulfill this role alone? I am asking you if he can do it when even God Himself cannot. From this perspective, what kind of religion is it that will be introduced by the Messiah and established by God? The conclusion is that it has to be a religion that has great strength to unify individuals, families, tribes, peoples, nations, the world, and cosmos with love. Even Satan says, “Isn’t this the purpose that the Messiah should come for and pursue? Isn’t this God’s purpose of sending the Messiah?” (130-174, 1984.1.15)

Adam and Eve should have united centered on God, however they united with the archangel, a servant of God; that is what the Fall refers to. Human beings, who should have inherited the lineage of God, inherited the lineage of the servant instead. That is why fallen people may call God “Father,” but they do not actually feel that He is their Father. This is because they have inherited the primary characteristics of fallen nature, which makes them think of everything in a self-centered manner, with no regard for God or anything else. Thus, people became contradictory beings, forming tribes and nations. Therefore these tribes and nations come to be divided very quickly. This is how the sphere of satanic culture developed. Everything that splits into two, then into three and so forth belongs to the satanic realm. (91-242, 1977.2.23)

True Parents and Us

Section 3. True Parents’ Effort and Us

3.1. We absolutely need True Parents

    The True Parents are needed to establish conditions of indemnity. We are to inherit their foundation based on the standard of having become one in love. (137-116, 1985.12.24)

    America is like my enemy, but while I was in prison I established six organizations to save America, beginning with the Washington Times newspaper. A person in the secular world would have sought revenge, but I did not. One must give love. We absolutely need True Parents for three reasons – to complete restoration through indemnity, to become one in true love, and to receive rebirth based on the change of lineage. (137-113, 1985.12.24)

3.2. We are a branch engrafted to True Parents

    Originally, human beings, as horizontal parents, were supposed to make a joyful beginning of love with God as the vertical parent. But Satan invaded that moment. So now it is necessary to take it back again and reconnect it, so that you will become the sons and daughters of True Parents. Since you are wild olive trees, you need to receive a branch of the true olive tree and be engrafted with it. Religions are meant to do the work of engrafting. This is Christian thought. This is why it is said that the marriage feast of the bride and bridegroom must occur on earth. (58-218, 1972.6.11)

    The hope of humankind is to meet True Parents. Meeting True Parents is the fruit of history, the center of this age, and the foundation upon which to begin the future. You who are engrafted to them are becoming branches. Until now, all the hopes of the historical ages have focused on the future, but a connection with True Parents during one’s lifetime comes only once in eternity. It is a precious chance that comes only once. Your ancestors could not have it, nor will your descendants. (46-167, 1971.8.13)

    Through the Fall, Satan took away all humankind. He carried them all off to hell. From among those who were taken away God separates people out one by one. This world used to be a wild olive tree in the satanic world, but God has turned it into a heavenly olive tree. God made Christianity in the democratic world be a wild olive tree on the heavenly side, so it could lead the world. When the satanic world weakens and the Christian cultural realm is established, the Lord will come at his Second Advent, cut them off all at once, engraft them completely, make them one, and turn them around. Today, the left wing has perished, and the right wing has almost collapsed. Who brought this about? God and True Parents did. Families who have become one with True Parents inherited True Parents’ path, so they should be strong and courageous wherever they are in the world. Then, just as God and this universe protect me, it will protect them, and winning the heart of a nation will be no problem.
    If someone asks you where you go to church, proudly tell them that you are a Unification Church member. “We belong to True Parents. We are True Parents’ sons and daughters.” Please do not fight. By fighting you are acknowledging Satan. So go around proclaiming these things. Say to them, “We are number one Moonies, number one children of God!” Then Satan will not be able to accuse you. Carry such thoughts firmly with you. (201-128, 1990.3.27)
