God’s Love Is Beyond Comparison with Anything in the World

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1527

    Pledge number three says, “Our family… pledges to perfect the Four Great Realms of Heart, the Three Great Kingships and the Realm of the Royal Family, by centering on true love.” Since Adam and Eve failed to accomplish them through their first love, we have to fulfill them as originally intended. Terms such as “divine sons and daughters” in pledge number two carry the implicit meaning of restoration. We therefore we need to achieve pledge number three on the basis of first fulfilling the content of number two.
    This pledge clearly requires us “… to perfect the Four Great Realms of Heart, the Three Great Kingships, and the Realm of the Royal Family.” The realm of the royal family signifies that the direct descendants of the Lord at his Second Advent have no conditions of 1 indemnity to fulfill. The direct descendants are not affected by them. Such conditions still apply to the woman and son in the realm of Cain, but not to the direct descendants. That is exactly what took place with True Mother, Sung-jin’s mother, and Sung-jin himself.
    To put it more clearly, to be included in the realm of God’s royal family is acknowledging the realm of Cain. By putting them in the position of the restored younger brother, and treating them as the royal family, Satan would have no grounds on which to accuse. Satan would have to acknowledge them, because he would have no conditions on which he can claim them as his children. If the realm of Cain were not included, it would mean that within the satanic realm would be those who are not part of the royal family, and so Satan would still maintain his fallen existence. However, by recognizing the realm of Cain as part of the royal family, Satan would have to retreat. This is crucially important. (260-158, 1994.5.2)

    By offering a tithe from your material possessions to God, you can establish a condition equal to having offered all that you have. Even if you do not offer everything to God, offering a portion of it with all of your heart and mind will enable the rest to be considered holy. The person who tithes will never perish. As days go by, his storage room will be filled with more material blessings. (31-239, 1970.6.4)

The Reality of Love

Section 1. God’s Love

1.1. Love originates from God

God needs no knowledge, as He is the one who created knowledge. God needs no power, as He is omniscient and omnipotent. God needs no money, as He can make diamonds and gold whenever He wants. There is only one thing God needs, and it is love. Can God receive love by Himself? You may wonder whether God cannot just receive love as He pleases; but it’s not like that! What God needs most is a partner with whom God can share true love. You have not known this. (137-52, 1985.12.18)

What is the flavor of God’s love? It is a wonderful flavor that combines everything. It has a power such that when you like it and grasp it, you can grasp it without limit, and when you unfold it, you can unfold it without limit. Hence, with love, you can fill everything and reach everywhere. (81-18, 1975.11.23)

God is the original source of love. It is from here that parental love, conjugal love, children’s love, brotherly love, the love of blood relatives and the love of an ethnic people have emerged. (50-267, 1971.11.8)

Among all forms of love, that which is invisible is the highest. If love were visible, it would not be so interesting. It is because love is invisible that it can be the highest, widest, and deepest. So, to say that “Love is like the Rocky Mountains; love is like Niagara Falls” is correct. Just as the invisible love is this precious, God, who dwells in an invisible place, is also a precious being. It is correct to say that in order to find such a precious God, we need to enter a selfless state, a state where “I” do not exist. God resides in an invisible, quiet realm that is deeper than we can perceive. (96-261, 1978.2.12)

All kinds of things happen when a man and a woman fall in love. But if you find a way to find God and really taste God’s love, you will see that God’s love is beyond comparison with anything in the world. If there is someone who has tasted such love, no suffering and no sorrow would be able to conquer him. Should there not be such an absolute realm of liberation? Finding it becomes the issue. (39-240, 1971.1.15)

Since God is an Absolute Being, there is no other place to attend Him. The people in love want to go together, be together, and live together. How do they want to live together? They want to live together by digging into God and becoming one. This is the essence of love. (56-147, 1972.5.14)

Is the mind narrow or wide? You don’t know what your mind looks like but the mind is infinitely large. Then how good is the mind? The mind desires to give huge sums of money to each and every person in the world, and then give more. This is how splendid the mind is. This is why human beings can blossom as flowers of infinite love and infinite hope. Why is this so? It is because they infinitely resemble God’s characteristics. (27-59, 1969.11.23)

How large is your mind? It is large beyond any measure. Also, if it is small, it is miserably small, so small that not even the tip of a needle can go in. The mind can be expanded infinitely and be shrunk infinitely. It has that essence or nature. Why is the mind formed like that? It is made as God’s home, where God can dwell. (145-312, 1986.6.1)

Love takes the shortest distance. These may be simple words, but they are precious words. Why does it have to be perpendicular? This is the problem. Why does it have to be level and balanced? In order for love to be perpendicular, it must go the straight path, the shortest distance. When you go visit someone you love, do you take your time walking leisurely just as you visit a neighboring village or do you go swiftly and straight like an arrow? Whether night or day, whether spring, summer, autumn or winter, no matter how long history may be, love tries to take the shortest, straightest path. (187-50, 1989.1.6)

Of all things in the universe, love takes the shortest, straightest path. When something falls, it takes the shortest, straightest perpendicular path to the plane it hits. (187-50, 1989.1.6)
