True Parents Keep the Original Unfallen Standard

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1411

In the beginning, God first created all things and then Adam and Eve as their center and the substantial beings of glory, wishing for the coming of the joyful day of their victorious blessing. Yet as His will was not fulfilled due to their fall, we who live in the world today should do our utmost to fulfill that day of hope within our own generation. We should hold high the glory of that victory and – whether as individuals or couples – praise God before heaven and earth. You should realize how blessed you are to be able to be a part of such a gloriously unique occasion. (30-170, 1970.3.22)

Who are the new parents of humankind? Adam and Eve, who fell in the very beginning in the Garden of Eden, became fallen parents. The new parents coming with the mission of giving rebirth to humankind are the original, parents who have nothing to do with the Fall. They have become one with God’s will and can be approved by God. They are the parents who keep the original, unfallen standard and fulfill God’s will. They multiply children of goodness by forming an ideal family in the embrace of God, centering on His love. They are the parents who have nothing to do with the Fall. (22-269, 1969.5.4)

Section 6. The Meaning of the Words True Parents

6.1. The words True Parents are precious

    You should know how important and how precious the words True Parents are. You have an obligation to believe in True Parents even if you may not believe in your nation and the president, your teachers, your parents, or your brothers and sisters. You should know that the concept of True Parents contains the idea of the salvation of hell and the evil world of Satan.
    When you are in an unavoidable place of death in the satanic world and your parents then become the strength to shield you against death, and this is acknowledged by heaven and by history, how proud you will be! True Parents are vouched for by God and history. You should know how the words True Parents came into being.
    I did not start this work in order to become the True Parent. I was forced to come forward and do this because it could not be done without me. (116-113, 1981.12.27)

True Parents are the Embodiment of Absolute Sexual Ethics

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1203

America was born from Britain, so it is in the son’s position. Before becoming an archangel, the son is in the position of Abel. When the son is born, he has the right of the eldest son. Since he has this right, he must become the first son on God’s side and in this capacity he must attend a mother on God’s side, but this position was lost. When the island nation of Britain separated from Rome, it was in the position of archangel before it received the position of Eve. It was in the position of the restored archangel rather than the fallen archangel. It was in the position of Abel. America must become a nation able to inherit the right of the eldest son so that it can accomplish restoration through indemnity. (138-308, 1986.1.24)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1563

What are the characteristics of the nation you long for? It is dissimilar in every way to those you currently live in. You will have to say goodbye to those nations one day. If you are attached to them, then you have to know that you are attached to sinfulness. You know deep in your hearts that you were born as the descendants of fallen people who were not related to the original goodness that would have allowed the will of that nation to be linked to God’s will.

5.3. True Parents are the embodiment of good character

    Has there been a saint in our history who said, “Follow my example because, as a representative of all people in history, my mind and body have ceased to fight and have achieved complete unity”?
    Which is more important, the body or the mind? Both mind and body are important, but what is even more important is the unity of my body and mind. This is very important. If you have not achieved this, even though the world may be unified, you will have nothing to do with the world.

Satan Cannot Obstruct Us any Longer

Cheon Seong Gyeong 899

    The spirit world up until the present day has carried out numerous spiritual works in mainstream religious history. These mainstream works had to connect to a certain line of relationship with the physical world. Spirit people cannot come to earth and carry out their works as they please. They are blocked from doing that. Unless a bridge is built by way of religion, only a few special people can return to earth. Factions were created within Judaism. When they come down from the spirit world, the mainstream cannot come in a straight line. When different factions of Judaism each make their own spiritual offerings, the mainstream moves back and forth accordingly.
    Therefore, for those coming down from the spirit world, only the ones who are connected with the mainstream can come down. Otherwise, they cannot come and co-operate through the process of returning resurrection.
    Eventually, people on earth will also go to the spirit world. Once in the spirit world, if they want to come down to the next generation, they have to follow the same principle. Yet, only a few special ones will be able to do so. (102-29, 1978.11.19)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1374

    At the 30,000 Couples Blessing held on August 25, 1992, everyone who came was blessed in the same way. As long as they attended a seven-day Divine Principle workshop and pledged that they believed in the True Parents, they were eligible for the Blessing. Since they came from the fallen lineage and were not true children, they entrusted everything absolutely to the True Parents. Since Satan had deprived God of the right of ownership through the Fall, they needed to return everything back to God through the conversion of the lineage, right of ownership and realm of heart, and pledge to become the children of the True Parents without fail.
    It was the 30,000 Couples who accomplished this task. That does not mean, however, that by receiving the Blessing, they were done with the task. They must not forget that they were blessed on the foundation inherited from their elder brothers and sisters under the rules of the Blessed Family. Once you inherit something, you must assume an attitude similar to its testator and maintain, safeguard, and cherish it. Thus, we must inherit the realm of heart similar to our ancestors of old. Unlike in the past, the satanic world has now been liberated. If all brothers and sisters unite, they will have no problem in attaining that state.
    I have performed the 30,000 Couples Blessing and from now on blessing 3.6 million couples and even 360 million couples will not be a problem. Even the blessing of 3.6 billion couples can be conducted at the same time in thousands and tens of thousands of places across the world through satellite broadcasting. In that way, the whole of humankind throughout the world can be blessed. As the three great ancestors are now standing in the position of having received the Blessing after having been liberated, they can be connected to their descendants in a parent-child relationship. Hence, they can exchange these positions of vertical relationship through love. We are now living in the era of horizontal equalization of being able to freely shift one’s position. Satan cannot obstruct us any longer. (257-205, 1994.3.15)

Who Are the True Parents?

Cheon Seong Gyeong 298

    Now, you should go back to your hometowns and restore your families and relatives. You must hold revivals in your hometown. As you hold revivals, you should also all work on the district level. If you want to be a tribal messiah, you should display my photo. Pictures of me should not be just given away for nothing. Frame a few hundred photos and distribute them, saying they are good pictures. Get people’s permission to go into their homes and find the best places in the best rooms to hang them up.
    Then, spiritually you will be an elder brother to those homeowners. Vertically, you take the father’s position, and horizontally, the elder brother’s position. So in the position of the vertical father and the horizontal elder brother, you should instruct the householder, saying, “This should be hung here!” In this way, those who give out the pictures will be tribal messiahs.
    You should quickly work to hang up pictures in the homes of at least 120 families. Try to put up 120 or more. Placing pictures in those homes can be counted as a local level breakthrough. That is laying a foundation. Through this their ancestors in the spirit world will come every morning early and offer a bow to the picture. Turn on the light after one o’clock, two o’clock, or three o’clock to welcome them.

    Parents’ love toward their children does not just come from their everyday relationships with each other. It is a love that springs up from the very marrow of their bones. Parents have a loving mind for their children that can never be forgotten or cut off. Therefore, parents love their children as long as their life endures. When parents experience that their life is connected with their children, a loving heart toward their children naturally springs up. Parents cannot help loving their children, not just because of a conscious intention to love them because they are their own, but because of the life force that connects them to their children more deeply than that kind of awareness. We vividly feel this reality in our daily family life. (32-15, 1970.6.14)

    Who are the True Parents about whom the Unification Church speaks? This is the question. What would have happened had Adam and Eve not fallen? Without the Fall, God would have become the vertical love and Adam and Eve, God’s body. They are like God’s body. God is like the bone, and Adam and Eve are like the body. God also has mind and body.

The Messiah Comes as the True Parent

Cheon Seong Gyeong 205

    What is it that you desire? You want to be people of the heavenly kingdom or children of the heavenly kingdom. This must be your desire. If you become people and children of the heavenly kingdom, the heavenly kingdom will naturally appear.
    Then, what kind of world is the heavenly kingdom? Is it a democratic world? Democracy is a means and a transitional ideology to make regime change easier when the Lord comes. When the Lord appears on earth, all the people of the world must follow him. The people as a whole must go before the Lord. Then, this would be convenient for organizing all the nations of the world into one nation.
    But democracy cannot unify the world. The experiment is already over. Can America itself lead the world? America itself is doomed. So the question is how to save America and guide it to govern the world. If this is God’s will, it has to be handled through the philosophy of the Unification Church, “Rev. Moonism.” Until this happens, there is no way for America to survive, and the bridge to the heavenly kingdom cannot be built by the American people.

Richard:  Rev. Moon clearly teaches about God’s will, and very specifically about absolute sexual ethics.  These teachings, and especially the movement for absolute sexual ethics, should have been taken up by all families, and especially by Christian leaders and churches.  With this teaching, there is no confusion about whether homosexuality is right or wrong.  It is clearly against God’s ideal of creation.
    But overall, people did not listen.  Instead, we have seen a steady decline of sexual moral values, and moral values in general.  Homosexuality was made ‘the law of the land’ through the ridiculous Obergefell decision
    Justice Samuel Alito wrote in his dissent

“If a bare majority of Justices can invent a new right and impose that right on the rest of the country, the only real limit on what future majorities will be able to do is their own sense of what those with political power and cultural influence are willing to tolerate. Even enthusiastic supporters of same-sex marriage should worry about the scope of the power that today’s majority claims.”

    When we embrace goodness, and particularly absolute sexual ethics, as taught by Rev. Moon, then we will become God’s children who are in line with His will and heart.  Then this nation will be saved, not any other way.

Now that the vertical and horizontal eight-stage indemnity has all been completed, the Ceremony of the Settlement of the Eight Stages could be performed on August 31, 1989, in Alaska, the most northerly location in the West. It is the northernmost place. On the first day of September, I declared “the ideology centered on the Heavenly Father” at the same place. The ideology centered on the Heavenly Father is simultaneously the ideology of salvation by love as well as the ideology of parental love. This parent-centered ideology is all about a life lived by giving love. Satan cannot oppose anything based on love. If he cannot oppose the path taken by the Unification Church, we can rapidly expand worldwide. (199-157, 1990.2.16)

5.1. The two tablets of stone and True Parents

    When God led the Israelites out of Egypt there was a pillar of fire and a pillar of cloud. The pillar of cloud led them during the day and the pillar of fire led them at night. What did they signify? They represented a man and a woman and showed, symbolically, that in the Last Days parents would come and that the Israelites would serve them. Those who did not follow the pillar of fire and pillar of cloud would all perish. The Israelites wandered around aimlessly in the wilderness for forty years. Out of concern that they would perish, God called Moses to Mount Sinai. He had him fast for forty days and gave him two tablets of stone. They symbolized Adam and Eve – that is, True Parents. Why were the two tablets of stone placed in the Ark of the Covenant? The two tablets of stone symbolized Adam and Eve as the central figures who could complete the work of God’s will. This is why they were placed in the Ark of the Covenant. (134-172, 1985.4.7) Continue reading “The Messiah Comes as the True Parent”
