Recognize the One Person Who Will Represent the Future Together with History

Cheon Seong Gyeong 2367
You must understand that the Family Pledge
 is the result of extracting
from the Principle all the essential con-
tents needed to establish families. You
must recite the pledge before you pray,
in order to check you and your family’s
internal situation, and you should try
to correct things accordingly. You must
actualize the Family Pledge. In the past,
we had My Pledge. Now what do we
have? We must have the national and the
world pledges in the future. Of course,
the Family Pledge includes all of these.
(260-305, 1994.5.19)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1269

Among Christians, there are a few
who believe that the Lord at his Second
Advent will literally come on the clouds.
If you think you can be saved because
you believe, even if you don’t know any-
thing, your belief cannot be considered
as true faith. There would be no need for
the Unification Church if it were that
easy to be saved. (Blessed Family- 509)

God’s Will Which We Must Untangle

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
June 14, 1959

Matthew 10

Matthew 18

Prayer
Father, who moves this earth! Please forgive the sorrowful sin of history, which must be indemnified. Although countless people praised You, sad history has passed for six thousand years without fulfilling Your will. When we think who is responsible for all this, we cannot lift our heads. However, we ask You to have sympathy on our poor hearts and please preside over us personally.

We now kneel in Your presence with disheveled minds and bodies. Loving Father, please subjugate this hour, for we know You should be our sole owner. You are the only one who can see through all our situations.

Humankind has struggled to search for You in the course of history, yet none attended and lived with You on the earth. Is there anyone piece of land that belongs to You? Is there any one family that is Yours? Any one people? Any one nation? Nothing on this earth is claimed as Yours.

We dare to understand Your sorrowful heart. We know Your sorrow is that You cannot stand as the owner of this earth even though You are the actual owner, and that You cannot take the authority over this land, even though You should do so.

You worked without being able to take responsibility for humankind on the earth even though You should do so. You were in the position to directly subjugate and command us throughout our hearts, yet You could not do so. You should rejoice over us as the fruits of goodness, yet You could not find any one person, any one day. We did not know in what a sorrowful situation You were involved.

Please permit us to be Your sons and daughters who can be connected to Your sorrowful heart even if we have to lose everything on this earth at this moment. We sincerely desire to feel Your situation and difficulty from the standpoint of Your real children, to shed tears when You shed tears, and to experience hardships when You experience hardships. Father, You toiled for a long time to find and to establish such a person, yet You have not met the central figure who can represent humanity, heaven and the heavenly law.

We know that in the midst of all this, You formed the Israelites through a long historical process and sent the substantial Messiah who represents You and who works centering on Your heart to this earth. The Israelites, however, did not attend the Messiah and did not live together with him; as a result, they have wandered throughout the world. Today, as we face the last days, we are expecting the day of the Lord’s Second Coming. We know that you are searching for one who feels heartache when You feel sadness, one who fights with You, knowing Your situation; one who sings together with You representing Heaven’s joy. Father, there are countless people living on this earth, yet they have not recognized the one person who will represent the future together with history and the age. Please forgive them at this time.

We Must Die First if We are to Become a New Self

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1984

Adam’s enemy is Eve and Eve’s ene-
my is Adam. Abel’s enemy is his moth-
er and father, and Cain’s enemy is his
mother and father. These brothers, Abel
and Cain, are mutual enemies. They
are all enemies. The Korean peninsula
is where these enemies fight amongst
themselves to find their positions. The
Korean peninsula is where the final his-
tory is brought to an end. In terms of the
cultural history, it is the final point for
a showdown between communism and
democracy. Isn’t that the case with the
South and the North? Kim Il-sung in
the North is in the position of the father
who has returned representing the com-
munist world. And Rev. Moon, the True
Parent, is in the position of the father
who has returned, representing the
democratic world centering on Christi-
anity. Two parents have emerged.
Until now, the Korean peninsula was
in a position in Asia that could not be left
alone by the United States, China, and
Soviet Union. Japan is like Eve before
marriage and has become a truly beau-
tiful woman dressed in brilliant colors.
That is why the Soviet Union, China,
and the United States all want to snatch
her away. It is exactly the same situation
as when the angel fell. (228-231, 1992.4.3)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1726

The Unification Principle defines
God as the incorporeal absolute Subject,
the Subject with harmonized dual char-
acteristics. As a being with dual char-
acteristics, He created Adam and Eve
with substantial bodies to reflect each
of those characteristics. He intended to
become the center in the vertical posi-
tion when they were fully matured and
connected to each other horizontally
based on love. What this means is that
when Adam and Eve reached full matu-
rity, God’s masculinity was to reside in
Adam’s mind, and His femininity in
Eve’s. This, however, does not mean that
God is divided into two. Since He is the
Subject Being of these dual characteris-
tics, He can dwell in the minds of both
Adam and Eve. (138-245, 1986.1.24)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1241

It is truly significant to receive the
Blessing. Those who receive the Blessing
should be able to think of themselves
as God’s representatives and conduct
themselves as such. They should think,
“If I do not move, then heaven and earth
do not move.” God can establish a liv-
ing ideology for the sake of humankind
only when this position is reached. (13-14,
1963.10.1)

My New Self and the Heaven Where My New Self Can Dwell

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
June 14, 1959

God’s dispensation is not only looking for new individuals. He must find a new family, a new people, a new world, and ultimately the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus was unable to leave the value and standard of his heavenly character or personality as a new being on this earth. Therefore, he left behind the term “bridegroom and bride” as he left. God’s will is to establish a heavenly individual to find a family. Having that family as a model, He is to find a people; having that people as a model, He is to find a nation; having that nation as a model, He is to find the world, restore heaven and earth, and ultimately build the Kingdom of Heaven.

What should we do to become a new, resurrected self? We must establish the standard upon which God can say, “I can now defend you, and I will take the responsibility for your life, your ideology, and your love and heart.”

No matter how we are attacked, we can be resurrected if we have the standard upon which God will take responsibility for us. Jesus was able to be resurrected after the attacks of countless satans, for he had such a standard. His authority of life, ideology and love was connected to God’s heart. For that reason, Jesus’ substance was able to be resurrected.

If we have that kind of heart, who can attack the power of my life, my ideology, and my love? As long as God is with us, we have the authority to be resurrected after countless beatings from Satan, even after countless deaths. We should realize that we can be recognized as a new self with a new standard, a citizen of the Kingdom of heaven and a heavenly family, only when we stand on the judgment altar with that authority.

We Have to Fulfill Jesus’ Mission on Earth

Cheon Seong Gyeong 2268

The Bible teaches that God is our
Father. It refers to Jesus as God’s only
begotten son and to Jesus’ followers as his
brides as well as his siblings. As it reveals
content in which everything exists with-
in a framework of God’s family centered
on His love, it is a doctrine that builds
His family and teaches the duties of that
family that will allow God’s son to rest
within it. (195-195, 1989.11.15)

Richard:  The ideology and teaching of Rev. Moon, the Exposition of the Divine Principle (https://tparents.org/Library/Unification/Books/DP06/0-Toc.htm) and The Eight Great Textbooks of Holy Scripture:  (http://visionroot.org/resources/the-eight-books-of-holy-scripture/) are the fulfillment of the teaching of Jesus.

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1668

Everything in the world was creat-
ed by God as the textbook to help His
beloved children attain the ideal of love.
Thus, it was created with a recipro-
cal structure. Minerals exhibit subject-
object interaction, as do protons and
electrons in the case of the atom. Noth-
ing can continue in existence without
engaging in action and motion. Thus,
with human beings as the center, the
universe is created to reach that central
point. (137-59, 1985.12.18)

My New Self and the Heaven Where My New Self Can Dwell

Sun Myung Moon
June 14, 1959

Jesus was born on this earth as a totally new being in human history. However, he lived a miserable life.

For whom did Jesus live? He did not live for himself. It was not because he did not have pride. Although he was persecuted, he had within himself the power of life and ideology and the power of intense love. We should know that he lived without fully spreading his authority of life, ideology and love. For whom did Jesus live? He lived for his miserable people. The resurrected Jesus has toiled until today to resurrect our dead existence by his living substance. That has been the historical course of the two thousand years since his death. For whom did he live his thirty odd years? It was not for himself but for God and fallen humanity.

For that matter, for who did God toil? God has never lived for Himself. He lived to save the people who had died because of the fall.

What kind of days are the last days? Since Jesus did not live for himself, humanity has to offer a time when Jesus can live for himself. Since God also has not lived for Himself, humanity also has to establish a time when God can live for Himself. The last days are such a time.

God could not live for Himself until today because He had to save the dead people who had inherited the fallen lineage. Jesus could not live for himself during the two-thousand-year history. Holding onto humanity in the realm of death, God has been working six thousand years to save them and to restore a new day.

We Should Believe in the Substantial Jesus Who Had the New Ideology

Cheon Seong Gyeong 271
In the final period of history, Amer-
ica has played a leading role based on
its Christian culture, which has laid a
unified foundation. Instead of judging
the other nations of the world, America
allowed the defeated nations to main-
tain their independence.
These things suggest that we have
entered the age of God’s providence
when the abandoned sons and daugh-
ters, the prodigal children, can be
brought back into the fold. This explains
why the age of democracy, as a brother-
hood ideology, came about. As the time
of the brotherhood ideology comes to
an end, the parent-centered ideology
will arrive. Unification can occur only
under such a parent-centered ideol-
ogy. This is providential history. (213-10,
1991.1.13)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 399

The family is an encapsulation of
history. It is connected to history, with
its origin in God. You inherit the fam-
ily vertically. However, inheritance must
take place in a perfectly vertical manner,
at a ninety degree angle. The grandfa-
ther and grandmother, representing
God, have already inherited this. (216-262,
1991.4.7)

My New Self and the Heaven Where My New Self Can Dwell

Sun Myung Moon
June 14, 1959

Why did Jesus come to this earth and for whom did he come? Representing God, Jesus came to this earth to make people walk the historical path with hearts that could connect to God’s heart and the heart of history. The Jewish people understood how to follow God’s history, but they were not able to follow God’s heart. They upheld God’s dispensation, yet they failed to uphold God’s heart.

For that reason, Jesus came with the historical heart and God’s heart, moving behind the dispensation. Jesus came with the heart that substantially represented the four thousand years of history. The Israelites and the leaders of Judaism, however, did not know this.

Searching for God means grasping the life that emanates from God’s heart, finding the ideology that comes through God’s heart, and searching for the love that comes from His heart. There cannot be life without going through God’s heart. There cannot be ideology without connecting to God’s heart. There cannot be love that does not come from God’s heart.

For that reason, when Jesus came to this earth, he came as the owner for the four-thousand-year history in the realm of heart. Because his heart represented God’s heart, whatever came out of his heart had the power of life. His heart was the substantiation of the historical life, of the historical hope and ideology, and the historical love.

Therefore, Jesus should have been regarded as more important than the people and nation of Israel and Judaism. The Israelites, however, killed this most significant Jesus. They were ignorant of the fact that they could have gained his heart and ideology for the nation, for God’s dispensation, and for the whole universe through this one person, Jesus. They killed Jesus, for they did not know.

The Lord Brings the New Truth

Cheon Seong Gyeong 2011
All of your comings and goings
should be for the sake of seeking that
nation, being its founding loyal patri-
ots, and restoring our homeland. Your
mind-set should be to shoulder such
a mission. You should think that you
have received instructions, as the secret
envoys of Heaven, to come to this evil
world today to fulfill this mission. Please
understand that without doing this, you
will not be able to establish your prestige
or dignity as a citizen of the nation we
have been seeking. (50-255, 1971.11.7)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1696

In general, people believe human
beings evolved from the animal world,
but this is a makeshift theory fabricated
from a need for an explanation. In order
to form a logical connection, the theo-
ry was invented as an expedience; there
is no way of knowing if evolution real-
ly took place. Did the basis of our mind
begin from the amoeba? What I am ask-
ing is: is the amoeba our mental ances-
tor? Evolutionary theory claims that
everything began and developed from
the amoeba. (117-68, 1982.2.1)

John 3: 1-15

What will God bring when He comes again? Since we know that God is not going to destroy the world but will come again with a new ideology, what will He bring? He will come with the great power of life and the authority of a new ideology. He will come with the origin of love. Such a person is called “the Lord” in Christianity.

We who have tread and walked the course of fallen history need the touch of life which is stronger and more permanent and eternal than anything we have enjoyed or experienced before. The place where we experience such a touch will be our eternal resting place, a place we would never want to leave.

The three disciples who saw the transfiguration of Elijah, Moses and Jesus wanted to remain in that place. Have you attained and experienced the state of heart where you feel, “This is my eternal resting place, the place of eternal happiness. This is where there is no beginning and no end”? When one appears with the great power of life to which all creation will bow their heads, he will naturally become the master of all things. In his ideological world, all things and even God would want to rest and remain. When his loving emotional heart wells up, all things should want to harmonize with it. Even God should want to rejoice with it. There is such a loving emotional state. If these contents are not fulfilled in the last days of human history, then God’s dispensation will end in destruction. The whole dispensation of God for this world would become a total failure.

God has been toiling until now, for He cannot allow such a conclusion. Therefore, we cannot deny that the garden of new life, new ideology, and new love will certainly come to humankind today.

Richard:  In other words, the Lord brings the New Truth (http://visionroot.org/resources/the-eight-books-of-holy-scripture/) when he comes.

By the Action of Our Conscience We Can Find Peace of Mind

Cheon Seong Gyeong 2066
We are going to connect professors,
high school and middle school teachers
and elementary school teachers to the
tong ban breakthrough activities. If they
connect, then our work is done. Although
the established churches put up opposi-
tion by trying to advance certain theo-
ries about history, this doesn’t present
an obstacle. We are going over that hill
completely. Even from a sitting position
we can digest everything, including the
communists. (205-297, 1990.10.1)

Richard:  Urban Life Training has developed a practical program to carry this out in local schools; the Urban Life Training Chapter Program:  http://teacher.urbanlifetraining.org/form-a-chapter/, which utilizes the Urban Family Life Training Web Portal:  https://www.urbanlifetraining.org/index.php/online-teaching-portal.

Cheon Seong Gyeong 706

What way should you go? First you
are recognized by family members in
the satanic world, then by me. After that,
you go to God in the spirit world. That
is the way to go, by the way of the law.
Going that way is the right direction. If
there are any conditions for accusation,
they will join forces to accuse you in the
flesh. It will be a judgment of substance.
Will lies work in that situation? Doing
something unwillingly is like not doing
it at all. If you do it thinking of God and
Father, their essence will be embedded
inside your shell, like a fully mature
chestnut embedded inside the burr.
When you think of God and me dwell-
ing in your heart, my words and God’s
Word will become your core.

John 3: 1-15

When we consider the course of history, numerous assertions of the past have changed as history progressed. As we face the last days today, democracy and communism are confronting each other and each is looking to dominate the other. Therefore, you should know that the time is coming when a new direction out of this battleground is to be discovered.

God is hoping that humankind will become his new second self. For that reason, our conscience is searching for our new self, which is different from our present self. If we live conscientiously, we cannot deny this. Our conscience constantly feels, “Oh, things should not be like this. We should not live like this.” This shows that we realize this kind of society, this kind of world, must change. Accordingly, by the action of our conscience, we can find peace of mind, where we are moving toward our new selves and the new ideology without being consciously aware of it.

Jesus came to complete God’s four thousand years of restorational history. What did he bring? He brought new life, a new ideology, and new love.

If a certain heavenly fortune were to flow through your heart today, would you feel the vitality of life to join and move with that fortune? Do you feel the heart of the one central ideology which can move all being, all cosmic ideological existence? Do you feel the heart of love which can embrace and melt all existence? We do not.

God Had to Raise One Person and Sanctify Him


Cheon Seong Gyeong 2314

God wants to have even sinners
become His sons and daughters. Just
because your fiancée might not have
such a pretty face or is Japanese or is a
little short, can you think, “Oh, I don’t
like her”? You men should be convinced
that you would go to the highest place
in heaven if you took the ugliest woman
and sacrificed yourself for and served
her more than anyone else. You should
understand that you would then become
the greatest husband and a saint of a
husband. Unification Church members
should be capable of having that level of
thought. (116-95, 1981.12.20)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1415

There could have been only one kind
of marriage feast held in the Garden of
Eden, one based on Principle. Human-
kind received Satan’s blessing through
the Fall. This is our greatest grief; we
should have received God’s Blessing
instead. Think for a moment how the
people on Satan’s side – his innumera-
ble descendants – rejoiced on this feast
day of fallen marriage, how much they
delighted in it, and how much they ate
and drank in celebration of it. All of
these actions have added to God’s sor-
row. Marriage became an important
means and source of expanding the
satanic world. On account of this, ascet-
ics placed much emphasis on celibacy.
All marriages performed from ancient
times to this day are a source of sorrow
to God. They have left conditions that
sadden Him, and not one of them has
left behind any point that can give joy to
Him and form a connection with Him.
(158-276, 1967.12.29)

Richard:  Although this may be somewhat bitter news, the great hope is that God wants to save all people and has made available the Blessing of Marriage to all people:  http://visionroot.org/resources/marriage/.

 

Sun Myung Moon
June 14, 1959



John 3: 1-15

What kind of strategy is needed to fulfill this dispensation? God had to raise one person and sanctify him. Because people on this earth cannot establish a relationship with Heavenly Father as they are, He had to choose a people as He persevered through dispensational history. We know well the history of God’s dispensation of the chosen people. God chose Noah, Abraham and Moses for this purpose.

God’s heart desired to complete the four-thousand-year history by raising Jesus and resolving all historical heartaches through him. Therefore, Jesus was essential and indispensable for God and the Israelites, whom God chose for the historical dispensational will. Not only the chosen people, all those who live in the world then, needed Jesus. Even all things which existed in heaven and earth then necessarily needed Jesus.

If we accept the existence of God, the central ideology which humankind desires, which will realize the joyful environment, must start with and from one principle standard. That would be an iron rule of the dispensation.

We cannot solve any problem without using a formula. Likewise, one principle standard must be established which will enable us to rigorously reject the historical resentment and introduce happiness into the hearts of humankind. If not, then even if there is some happiness, some ideology and life in God, they cannot make any relationship with humankind. For that reason, God toiled to educate the Israelites in heart to represent His heart. Their happiness was to represent God’s happiness. They were to uphold the ideology of God’s nation. Accordingly, God sent Jesus after four thousand years of the dispensation in order for Israel to build the garden of happiness and goodness by which they could connect with God in a real and substantial way.

The Place Where the Original Human Mind Can Dwell Has Not Appeared Yet

Cheon Seong Gyeong 2050

The Unification Church must now
ready itself to bring about the unification
of North and South Korea from the posi-
tion of Abel. But the Unification Church
is not totally settled yet. What does tong
ban breakthrough mean? It means we
must overturn everything centering on
the families of the land of South Korea.
Why? Because the Fall started from the
family, we must change the thinking
of people on the family level. However,
before God can find the environmental
conditions to accomplish this, the exter-
nal world of Satan’s side uses all of its
energy to oppose God’s efforts. Until
now the political environment, start-
ing from the era of the Liberal Party,
and then moving on to the era of the
Republican Party and the Democrat-
ic and Justice Party, have opposed the
Unification Church’s efforts to organize
itself and spread out into the country-
side. They have opposed the settlement
of our church. (207-330, 1990.11.11)

What is marriage? Through mar-
riage, woman who is only half-complete
is made whole by the fulfillment of love
with a man. The same is true of man, in
that he is perfected through marriage
by becoming one in love with a woman.
Thus, the male and female organs are
absolutely necessary. The male organ
was made for woman and the female
sexual organ for man. Their sexual
organs were not made for themselves.

My New Self and the Heaven Where My New Self Can Dwell

Sun Myung Moon

John 3: 1-15

My topic is “My New Self and the Heaven Where My New Self Can Dwell.” I will speak briefly upon this topic.

Countless people live on this earth, yet no one can confidently say that he possesses Heaven in his mind. The ideal world which humankind has admired and sought is surely heaven.

In this world, there are many who would wish to live well and be in a blessed position; however, those who can say “I lived well” and “I was blessed” are very few. When we look at this situation, we cannot deny that our life in this world is indeed not life in heaven, but it’s very opposite. I stand on such a border line; I stand in a position to search after Heaven. We cannot deny that we should seek out and live in such a place. Therefore, our mind searches for a better ideology, and our body seeks a better resting place.

However, the place we can confidently say is the best place in the whole of human history, the place where the original human mind can dwell, has not appeared yet. The lifestyle and social organization of such a life have not appeared in human history. Continue reading “The Place Where the Original Human Mind Can Dwell Has Not Appeared Yet”

We Now Desire to Live the Rest of Our Lives According to Your Will

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1294

God’s ideal, which was to be achieved
through the human ancestors, was to
have a man and woman come together
in union and form an ideal family. In
this regard, the center of an ideal fam-
ily is neither man nor woman. A family
is a group formed by the union between
the husband and wife, the parents and
children. At the center is the love of
God. Therefore, we reach the conclu-
sion that the will of God is to perfect
a family, centering on the love of God.
(Blessed Family – 301)What can we conclude after clearly
understanding the term True Parents?
We can conclude that the Fall of our first
ancestors occurred through an illicit sex-
ual relationship. The Fall has resulted in
a connection of blood that has nothing
to do with God or with the True Parents
who were to be established as the ideal
of creation. In other words, we came to
inherit the wrong bloodline.

My New Self and the Heaven Where My New Self Can Dwell

Sun Myung Moon
June 14, 1959

John 3: 1-15

There was a man named Nicodemus who was a Pharisee and a Jewish leader. One night he went to Jesus and said, “Sir, we know that God has sent you to teach us. You could not work these miracles, unless God were with you.”

Jesus replied, “I tell you for certain that you must be born from above[a] before you can see God’s kingdom!”

Nicodemus asked, “How can a grown man ever be born a second time?”

Jesus answered:

I tell you for certain that before you can get into God’s kingdom, you must be born not only by water, but by the Spirit. Humans give life to their children. Yet only God’s Spirit can change you into a child of God. Don’t be surprised when I say that you must be born from above. Only God’s Spirit gives new life. The Spirit is like the wind that blows wherever it wants to. You can hear the wind, but you don’t know where it comes from or where it is going.

“How can this be?” Nicodemus asked.

10 Jesus replied:

How can you be a teacher of Israel and not know these things? 11 I tell you for certain that we know what we are talking about because we have seen it ourselves. But none of you will accept what we say. 12 If you don’t believe when I talk to you about things on earth, how can you possibly believe if I talk to you about things in heaven?

13 No one has gone up to heaven except the Son of Man, who came down from there. 14 And the Son of Man must be lifted up, just as that metal snake was lifted up by Moses in the desert.[b] 15 Then everyone who has faith in the Son of Man will have eternal life.

Prayer

As we persevere on the difficult path of life, we know well that we are immersed in a sorrowful situation. We know that many painful circumstances lie ahead of us. We know that we have not the heart which can sing in sheer happiness when we face Heavenly Father, this land, and humanity. Father! Please have mercy on us. We have been worn out by sorrow and hardships. We have struggled without even knowing in what direction to go. Please hold onto those of us who have wandered, not knowing on whom to lean. Father, we feel how wonderful and great is Your amazing grace, yet we are unable to return glory to You. Please forgive us.

Father, You have suggested to us the path by which to avoid sorrow in this sorrowful world. However, we ask for Your forgiveness since we were inadequate in upholding Your predestined will. We know that You have prepared a path by which we may avoid hardships, even though we deserve a suffering course. We are so grateful. However, we ask for Your forgiveness since we were unable to walk that path.

We now desire to live the rest of our lives according to Your will, for Your joy and glory only. Nevertheless, the power of death and the influence of sin in this world powerfully encircle us. You know how difficult it is to escape from them. Therefore, benevolent Father, please be present at this time.

Father, please forgive us. We have not yet become people who return glory and joy to You from a liberated position. Please subjugate the power of darkness by spreading new power and Your mighty hand. Father, we sincerely hope that You will raise the history of re-creation in order that we may sing of the glory of resurrection as victorious people.

Since the power of death is sweeping over us, we need to overcome the decision of life and death. We must gain the automatic and spontaneous power that can push this away and march forward. Loving Father, if there are children of Yours who yearn for such power, please personally grant them the ability and allow the authority of resurrection that they may become heavenly soldiers who pioneer their daily life with the hope of the future.

Open Your Heart and Be Newly Born

Cheon Seong Gyeong 576

When receiving the Blessing, Uni-
fication Church couples pledge to live
as eternal families. I am the one who
governs eternal families and the eter-
nal nation. I am setting the standard of
families in the eternal nation. Those of
you who keep your promise can inherit
that family, as well as that eternal nation.
(205-359, 1990.10.2)

There are seven horizontal stages you
have to pass through from the individ-
ual to the family, tribe, people, nation,
world, and heaven and earth, before
reaching the final position of God. There
are also eight vertical levels beginning
with the servant of servant’s position. On
the foundation of restoring the rights of
the firstborn son in the course of seven
of these eight levels, you must attain the
position of the original, unfallen first-
born son. Adam and Eve were the first
son and the first daughter. The first son
and daughter have to pass through the
realm of dominion based on accom-
plishments through the Principle. Then,
they must be connected to the realm of
direct dominion based on love and pos-
sess the right of the firstborn son. Such
connection is impossible with the love
of the younger child. They are not con-
nected with the love of the second child.
Therefore, you must return to this posi-
tion and restore the right of the firstborn
son going up stage by stage. This is the
battle to be fought. (138-134, 1986.1.19)

How did the devil bring about the
Fall? Through the fruit of the tree of
knowledge of good and evil? Where did
they cover themselves after eating the
fruit? Did they cover up their mouths
or their hands? Didn’t they cover up
the sexual parts of their bodies? This
became the seed that sowed evil. They
fell before they had fully matured, while
they were still adolescents. As the lin-
eage of humankind in world history
stemmed form this act, in the Last Days
the phenomenon of such relationships
will thrive. The time will come, that,
across the world, young people destroy
the ethics of love. They will hide in the
shadows, just like Adam and Eve, and
have no fear of heaven. That will be the
time when the era of Satan’s worldwide
dominion will come to the earth. That
is when we will be faced with the iron
hammer of God. (200-227, 1990.2.25)

The Person Who Will Serve the Grieving Father

Matthew 23: 1-39

If you want to become heavenly sons and daughters, then you have to rise as the pioneers of the liberation movement to liberate God and humanity from their sorrows, representing all humankind over whom God has wept. You have to arm yourself with a mental and ideological weapon to charge against the enemies as soldiers in the heavenly battle. You have to go forth and arm yourself not with a selfish ideology, but with an ideology that can embrace the cosmos. You have to realize that is the only way for you to become heavenly sons and daughters.

Now Heavenly Father has opened the door of providential restoration, and He is looking for the individual representative, the family representative, the representative of the race, and the national representative among the believers of the last days. Where are such individuals? Such an individual, such a family, such a nation, and such a world as God seeks are nowhere to be found. One should not be self- centered. That is why, even when you do hold onto your life-consciousness, do not forget to possess the life-consciousness of the world and heavenly law. Such awareness is needed. It is foolish to live according to the awareness derived from one’s limited experience as if it were all the value in life. History will laugh at such a person. This age and heavenly law will also laugh. World-consciousness exists, transcending our awareness. Heavenly-consciousness exists, transcending world-awareness. Therefore, you should open your heart and be newly born so that you can transcend world-awareness, go over the hills of pain and suffering felt through heavenly-awareness and finally say, “Heavenly Father, please receive us.” Continue reading “Open Your Heart and Be Newly Born”
