Rebirth Occurs through the Spousal Relationship of Love

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1271

The Messiah may convert the lineage, but it is up to you to accept the conversion. Unless the foundation on which the conversion can take place is established, you cannot walk towards salvation. The path to salvation cannot be reached easily; before you reach it, you must go through a state of life and death. Only when you carry out a 40-day fast or you are on the brink of death, vomiting blood, can your lineage be converted. (35-160, 1970.10.13)

People in the world who were born before the True Mother came into existence were born in vain. That is why they needed to be engrafted to Jesus, pass through the body of Jesus, and be reborn through the Holy Spirit. This is possible because Jesus formed a spousal relationship of true love. Since they were born as the fruit of false love, they must be reborn through true love. This is one reason why a lot of emphasis is put on love in Christianity. (17-192, 1966.12.18)

There is no other way of becoming one with Jesus except through love. You cannot become one with him through truth or justice. Love is necessary before there can be life. Love goes beyond history, and is not limited by distance or space. (35-164, 1970.10.13)

Richard: In other words, you need to receive the Blessing to be reborn and to have salvation. Salvation only through spiritual rebirth with Jesus is incomplete.
You can prepare and receive the Blessing through, either as a single seeking your eternal match, or as an already married couple.

The Holy Wedding Blessing Ceremony is not simply a wedding through which a man and woman come together and form a family. Until now, all weddings were centered on the people getting married, but our wedding ceremony is a significant condition necessary to indemnify history. Therefore, in returning joy to God, we conduct the ceremony solemnly and splendidly. The Divine Principle clearly explains to us that our wedding ceremonies alleviate the grief of God caused by the Fall of Adam and Eve, and establish the true standard of husband and wife, which Jesus was not able to achieve.

The Reality of Love

Section 1. God’s Love

1.2. The purpose of love is the ideal of the loving union of God and man

What is the center of heaven and earth and fundamental root of the universe? When I entered a mystical state and prayed to God, He said that it is the relationships between the father and the sons and daughters, that is, the parent-child relationship. Those who do not know would understand this as relationships between the physical father, mother, and sons and daughters, but I am talking about a fundamental relationship with God. (19-158, 1965.1.1)

What is the summit where the father and the son can meet? They meet at the central point where love intersects love, life intersects life, and ideals intersect ideals; in this light, love, life and ideals are in one place. At that point, God is love, and so am I; God is life, and so am I; God is the ideal, and so am I. The first connection and first point of unification where this can be realized is the point at which the parent-child relationship forms; otherwise, these things cannot be. This is a certainty. (69-78, 1973.10.20)

If God is an Absolute Being, the question is why that Absolute Being created human beings. It was neither for money, nor for knowledge, nor for power; rather He created them because this was the only path available for God to feel love. From this point of view, God who is the father, and human beings who are His sons and daughters, form an axis. If this axis had connected God and humankind, absolutely nothing could sever the relationship between God and human beings united as one in love. (137-57, 1985.12.18)

Originally, the flower of love should bloom at the point where Adam and Eve are most joyful with each other, where the highest power of life is manifested, where the greatest powers come together, and where all ideals come together. So God’s dream is of a love that blossoms like a flower, with its fragrances permeating the whole world and beyond, a love that God experiences, smells, and which intoxicates Him completely. (104-44, 1979.3.28)

If a family was created from the loving union of God and human beings, where God was able to make a relationship of love with human beings and become one with them through the true, great love that He has desired as an ideal from the time of creation, today we would all enter the heavenly kingdom just as we are, without having to worry about heaven and hell. (275-54, 1995.10.31)

God likes love, but what kind of love does God like most? It is true love. Then, where does true love keep its love-root? It does not keep its root in God. This is strange, isn’t it? Although the omniscient and omnipotent God is the master of true love, He does not want the root of love to start from within God. God thinks of planting love’s roots in those who can be an object of that love. (177-269, 1988.5.20)

Are arteries greater or veins greater? Which is greater? They are equal. Then, which is greater, God or people? They are equal. When it comes to love, if God is the artery, we human beings are like the veins, so we have the value of having the privilege to be God’s equal. “I am my own Lord throughout heaven and earth. I am omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent. There is nothing that does not go through me.” What makes this happen? Love does. This is understandable. (109-146, 1980.11.1)

Which comes first, love or life? Love comes first. Just because the universe came out of God’s life does not mean that life is highest. It says that love is highest. Although God started creating heaven and earth with life, the starting point and motivation of this life is love. It is because of love that life came into being. (86-79, 1976.3.7)

When a man and a woman come to stand in the position representing God centering on love, they become connected to everything in the universe. When this happens, everything God possesses becomes theirs. The reason true love is great is that through true love you can become God’s object partner and God can also become you. The Bible says that God and Jesus dwell within you. It is from here that we can say that the father is in his son, the grandson is in his grandfather, and the grandfather is in his grandson. The grandfather and grandmother should make a relationship of heart with their grandchildren. Only then, will the vertical line of love start. Also, the grandchildren must become one with their grandfather and grandmother. Since the grandfather and grandmother are in the position of God, they should be attended like God. Otherwise, the axis of love will not be determined. The horizontal line will arise after this is established. Human perfection starts with creating a vertical relationship with God. (298-308, 1999.1.17)
