What are the Core Values at the Center of the Universe?

Cheon Seong Gyeong 436

Suppose one day you leave the house
after having a fight with your brothers or
sisters. The least you can do upon your
return is to hold a party so that you
can make them happy again. Ask for
their forgiveness and tell them that you
should love one another as you love your
parents. Since brothers and sisters rep-
resent your mother and father, if your
brothers or sisters are poor, help them
and serve them as you would serve your
mother. There is nothing more beautiful
than this. The Kingdom of Heaven starts
from there. (184-65, 1988.11.13)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 2179

In the same way, a man should first
buy clothes for his parents, and then
for his wife and children, before buying
clothes for himself. He should attend and
serve his parents when they eat. Even in
the satanic world, it was the custom in
Korea for people to attend their parents
for a three-year period of mourning
after their death. In the old days, was it
not Korean etiquette for a devoted son
to be in mourning for his deceased par-
ents by building a mud hut next to their
grave and living there for three years in
order to fulfill his filial duty? Therefore,
in Korea, if people did not attend their
parents with devotion for at least three
years, then when they went to the spirit
world, they would not be able to say that
they are descendants of Korea.

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1754

You did not know what makes a man
a man, and a woman a woman? The
answer is: the sexual organs. Is there
anyone here who dislikes them? If you
like them, how much do you like them?
Even if you hitherto disdained them, you
should henceforth esteem them. What
will the world be like in the future? If
it is a world that absolutely values the
sexual organs. Will that world be good
or bad? Will it prosper or perish? This
is not a joke. When God was creating
human beings, into which part did He
invest the greatest creative effort? Would
it be the eyes, the nose, the heart or the
brain? Do not all these organs eventual-
ly die? What is the purpose of the Fam-
ily Federation for World Peace? If there
were a world inhabited by people who
transcend all fields including morality
and religion, whose sexual organs are
harmonized into oneness so as to earn
God’s welcoming praise, what kind of
world would it be?

The Path of Life We Must Go, Entertaining Hope

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
March 22, 1959

Romans 8: 18-21

18 I am sure that what we are suffering now cannot compare with the glory that will be shown to us. 19 In fact, all creation is eagerly waiting for God to show who his children are. 20 Meanwhile, creation is confused, but not because it wants to be confused. God made it this way in the hope 21 that creation would be set free from decay and would share in the glorious freedom of his children.

Prayer

In this hour, please let us feel and experience the heart of the Father, who sent our good ancestors to this earth and drove them as far as death because You loved humankind so.

We know that history has been one of continual sadness and conflict since the fall of the first human ancestors, who were not up to their task. Neither Heaven nor earth has had a day of happiness since. Father, because of this, the world is full of twists and turns. When will we become pious sons and daughters in whom You can take delight and who can praise You on this earth? We are anxiously awaiting the day when we can do so.

Since we who are inadequate have gathered before You this day, please look at us with compassion. We are feeble; please make us strong, so that we may lift the banner of victory on the battleground that remains for us. Allow us to be able to boast that we have become Your sons and daughters. Father, we pray this from the bottoms of our hearts.

Father, we realize that there have been many things in our lives of the past week that were not right in Your presence. Please forgive us. We are prostrated before You in this hour to offer our insufficient minds and bodies. Please purify us from all that is not right. We pray ardently that You allow only the things You can claim to spring up in our minds and bodies.

We know very well that You have gathered us here in this hour because You love us so much. Since we realize this is out of Your grace, please let this be the hour when we can offer our sincere hearts to You in response to that grace. We sincerely wish and desire that You allow us to be sons and daughters who can fight to the end, enduring everything for the sake of fulfilling the Father’s wish and will.

Since it is a holy day, please bless all humankind, and bless this pitiful people. There are church members who are praying on their knees before You in lonely places. Please bless them and do not withdraw Your uniform grace of protection and divine aid from them. I sincerely wish and desire that You lead, protect and guide them until we greet the Father’s eternal day.

Since we came before You in this hour, please allow us to be able to offer all of our minds and bodies. Father, we pray sincerely that You will allow this to be the hour when we abandon all notions of the world and are able to relate to You with the hearts of true sons and daughters.

Father, please govern this hour in person. Do not allow Satan to take advantage of an unguarded moment. Ardently soliciting that You will cling to us eternally with the hands of grace, and that You will transfer us to Your garden of life, I pray all these words in the name of the Lord. Amen.

Cheon Seong Gyeong 2066

In the world of love, you have a spe-
cial right that enables you to make God
your own object partner. Whether you
are large or small, this is an indisputable
fact.
As you shed sweat with blood in the
field of your tong ban breakthrough
activities, laying the foundation and
creating a melting pot overflowing with
love, having been filled up totally, then
in the position of an owner ask God,
“Would you ever like to come here?”
Would you expect Him to say, “Get lost!
Go away!” Instead He will say, “Show me
the way!” Then He will ask you, “Where
would you like me to sit?” He cannot just
sit wherever He chooses. The principles
of the world work in this way.
The God who created the order in the
world knows the stages of the world that
He created. Therefore, He knows where
He should sit or where He should stand.
In Korea we have a saying for some-
one who has no common sense. We say
about him, “Does that person know how
to discern between where he will sit or
stand?” We say this, don’t we? It is the
same with God. (208-211, 1990.11.18)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1132

If we read the Bible, it tells us that
Adam and Eve fell by eating of the fruit
of the tree of the knowledge of good and
evil, but then what does it mean that
they covered their sexual parts? If the
Christian churches had a mind to inter-
pret the Bible a little more intellectu-
ally, they would immediately be able to
understand the origin of the Fall. Why
were Adam and Eve ashamed of their
sexual parts? Why did they cover them?
They should have covered their mouths
and hands. There is nothing wrong with
sexual organs. However, since people fell
through them, these parts of the human
body became a palace of shame where
heavenly love was violated. A spring of
true love should have welled forth from
there, but a fountain of false, devil-
ish love gushed out instead. That place
therefore became the stronghold of the
worst kind of love. (202-199, 1990.5.24)

The Heart of Heaven in Relation to Elijah

Sun Myung Moon
March 15, 1959

1 Kings 19: 1-21

The central role players in history have been people who were pursued and hounded. The doctrines that have ruled history were made by such people. People enjoying sumptuous feasts, living in grand style and sitting on a lofty seat in a grand residence never made such doctrines. Those people who were pursued, trodden upon and miserable made them. They were the people who shed tears.

The people who shed tears on behalf of Heaven, holding onto the world when the people of the nation are corrupt and the world is in utter confusion are the successors to Elijah on the world level. Such people can stand before Heaven on behalf of the Israelites for whom Elijah felt concern. If you strut proudly, saying, “Elijah is Elijah, and I am I,” you will meet with destruction. We must become those who can cry and feel sorrow together with Heaven.

Heaven does not exist only as logos. He is the God of the word, of the substantial entity, of Shim Jung and of love. We have become people who do not even know the word. We do not know the purpose of our body. We do not know what our Shim Jung is supposed to feel and experience. We do not know the heavenly love we should practice.

This is how a husband and wife go
together. Between a husband and wife,
is there a separate love for him, and
a separate love for her? For them, love
is both your love and my love at the
same time. It is your love and my love.

Cheon Seong Gyeong 2273

In essence, the term “father and son”
refers to the original parents and chil-
dren. If there are no such parents and
children, the nation cannot be estab-
lished. Everyone in the world is yearn-
ing for a world of peace, but that world
cannot be brought about through the
cultures being pursued by today’s devel-
oped nations. It can only come into
being through the True Parents. Even
if they were covered with straw mats,
carrying bundles of tattered clothes on
their backs, dressed in faded, worn-out
garments, having just climbed dogged-
ly out of an abyss, fallen human beings
need to learn from them, the heart of
God.

The Heart of Heaven in Relation to Elijah

Sun Myung Moon
March 15, 1959

We who were born later must now comprehend this heart of Heaven. Jesus ardently wished to relate to Heaven with such a heart; he desired to live this kind of life. We who are the tribe of Jesus, the successors to his undertaking, must become able to boast of ourselves as the embodiments of glory before Heaven. We who stand before the heavenly expectations today, bearing such a mission and responsibility, must now think about what we must seek, what we must feel, and what we must do.

What must we think of now? Since Jesus said we should become his friends and brides, each of us must think of becoming such a person. Furthermore, we must relieve Heaven from the historical han* that our ancestors caused. We must not leave to posterity the cause and occasion of lamentation and death. We must be able to leave the Golgotha of victory, not the Golgotha of death. You must know that Heaven is seeking a person who will assume such responsibility.

Since the mission of the last days lies with believers, we who eagerly look forward to the day of judgment and wish to stand on the grounds of glory by seeking out the Lord of resurrection, must know the sorrowful heart of Heaven as He dealt with Jesus and Noah’s family. When Noah was set up in the presence of Heaven and rose above the flood judgment after 120 years of toil, Heaven tried to be relieved from all past resentment through the remaining eight members of Noah’s family. However, due to Ham’s mistake, a condition for lamentation was again left behind. Knowing this, we must become the people who know how to relieve God from the grief of Noah’s family.

Sovereignty, territory and citizenry
are necessary for creating a nation. You
must believe that the eternal settlement
of Cheon Il Guk was declared on the
foundation of all its constituent parts.
Have confidence as God would and

strength with confidence equal to that
of Rev. Moon, the True Parent, nothing
will hold you back. (364-87, 2002.1.1)

Let’s Fulfill the Responsibility of the Third Creators

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
November 15, 2001

So, what is the most serious problem? Money, knowledge, or power is not the real problem. Not fulfilling our responsibilities is. That is why we put so much emphasis on responsibilities. What is the position of True Parents? Where does the position of parents with absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal value begin? It should begin from the position of God. Otherwise, even something true realized in the world of conflict could not be absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal. In order for you to solve your own problems, you should go back to the origin to understand God once and for all……

The devastating mistake of the first woman involved the first man and was connected to the entire world of angels. The world of fear, the world of denial, the world of sorrow and of agony began. As a result, no one has ever been able to break the chain of sin; it has just continued on. You are substantial and historical beings, the result of that false love, false life and false lineage. You cannot run away from the fact that you are the fruit of Adam and Eve’s fall. In you is an exact copy of Adam and Eve’s struggle and their inclination to deny God and choose evil. So naturally, the world will turn into one of gratifying bodily desires in the Last Days. That is a logical conclusion.

Do people living today not deny their consciences? They do whatever their bodies tell them to do. The body claims that it is the most important. It recognizes no parent, no God, no husband or wife-denying everything that really matters. The era of the kingdom of selfishness has arrived. Our world has lost the heavenly kingdom, lost God, lost our ancestors and lost our nations. In the families of a nation, people deny their grandparents, parents, spouses and their own children, just as Adam and Eve denied and rejected God and all things. All the phenomena of the Last Days are presently taking place in the world. Continue reading “The Nation of Cheon Il Guk Has Arrived”

People of faith today do not know
the law of indemnity. There are many
who seek to go to the heavenly kingdom
without fulfilling the necessary obliga-
tions. At the same time, there is no one
who says that he will go to the heavenly
kingdom only after taking responsibil-
ity, through liquidating historical sins to
pay indemnity, in order to arrive there.
This is why, during our life on earth,
when we have our bodies, we should
take responsibility to establish the con-
ditions to resolve everything that has
gone wrong in history. Those who went
to the spirit world without indemnify-
ing their sins while they had their bod-
ies must return to earth and pay indem-
nity. All the spirits of the historical ages
up until now arrived to the spirit world
without having been able to sufficiently
pay indemnity, and thus they violated
that law. Therefore, they are destined to
return from the spirit world to try again
to establish the conditions of indemni-
ty. What is the one advantage that the
people living on earth have over those
in the spirit world? It is the fact that they
have a body, with which they can direct-
ly establish a condition of indemnity.
(80-93, 1975.10.19)

Richard:  Such a key point.  Say someone in your lineage committed the sin of aborting a baby.  Then if that person dies, they will have to return and work to indemnify that.  If that person is your ancestor, your actions will help (or hinder) that person in restoring that sin (say, by adopting a child even if you can’t physically have children, for example).  This is expalined in the Divine Priciple in the section on “Returning Resurrection”: http://visionroot.org/assets/Uploads/DP06-ch5.pdf (p. 144)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1798

Where the original lineage was lost,
no culture of heart will emerge. Culture
is connected to the unfolding of histo-
ry. Based on the family, society, nation,
and world, this must be propagated. “We
pledge to perfect the world of the cul-
ture of heart, connected to the original
lineage.” The point is to bequeath a pure
lineage. Otherwise, we would be cut off
from the world of the culture of heart.
That vast Kingdom of Heaven is the
foundation of the heart that we can live
in, but if the world of the culture of heart
cannot be built, that world will be cut off.
Hence, we must live a life centered on
the realm of the culture of heart .

The Heart of Heaven in Relation to Elijah

Sun Myung Moon
March 15, 1959

Elijah had made great efforts to guide the people to fulfill the providential purposes of God, who had called him, set him up and had trusted in him. When God saw him pleading in the sad position of being driven away, saying, “Father, I am the only one left!” He felt severe sadness. We must know this fact.

Heaven felt that Elijah, hiding after being driven away and pursued, was more precious than the numerous Israelites. He placed more hope in him than in the land of Israel. We must stop to think about Elijah, who pled with God to render a final decision in the wilderness where he could not choose the right direction, in utter exhaustion and having lost all hope. Furthermore, we must know God, who guided the Israelites and toiled to seek out and set up Elijah. He helped Elijah by performing various types of miracles when he was in trouble and lent him a helping hand from the time of his youth. The heart of Heaven in relation to Elijah came to be buried in grief.

Elijah realized that he could not stay in the land of Judah. He ended up running away to Mt. Horeb, where God had bestowed blessing upon the Israelites when they came to take their way out of Egypt by walking forty days and forty nights. It was a mountain near Mount Sinai, where his ancestors had formed their bonds with Heaven. God knew that Elijah had to cross the border, and He also knew that Elijah had a long way to go, without any friend or fellow-traveler. Therefore, through an angel, God gave Elijah a cake of bread baked over hot coals and a jar of water and told him to eat and drink.

Elijah Shed Tears for Heaven

Cheon Seong Gyeong 490

Do loving parents keep an account of
the times they love their children, say-
ing: “We bought you shoes and clothes
a few days ago with our hard earned
money, which cost us so many dollars
and cents”? When parents love their
children, they want to treat them even
better than princes and princesses, and
still feel sorry that they cannot give
more. Parents have the heart of want-
ing to give their children something
better. This is why we cherish parental
love. You should all know this. Parents
give and yet feel that it is not enough;
they love and yet feel as if there is some
love they have not yet given and want to
give more; and even after giving, they
still feel unsatisfied with what they were
able to give their children. This essence
of parental love is then what connects us
to eternal love. This is the original moti-
vation for the beginning point of love.

No matter how dirty the water, it

ent races. Although I do not speak their

different species. They are my kin – my
younger brothers and sisters. I am meet-
ing them again after living separately for
six thousand years. That is why they nat-
urally welcome me with joy, although we
do not share the same language, habits

1 Kings 19: 1-21

Elijah was called before Heaven in the same manner. He had been a prince of tears, a person who shed tears no one knew of, until Heaven sought him. He shed more tears than any king of Israel, more than anyone else in Israel. There had been Israelites who had shed tears over their miserable circumstances, but those tears were shed for themselves. The tears of Elijah, though a common man, were shed having forgotten his circumstances and pride. They were disinterested tears. His mind was great in its wondering, “Why has Israel, whom Heaven has guided, wound up as it has?”

The remnant of the mass of the six hundred thousand who died in the forty-year wilderness course, after having undergone four hundred years of slavery under Egypt, entered into the land of Canaan and built the nation of Israel. Yet Elijah saw that Israel was being subjugated by a foreign country, cajoled by the enemy. The privilege of being the chosen people of God was being abused. Elijah felt a deeply penetrating sorrow. He assiduously prayed for the people, more than anyone else, and made more effort than anyone else for Heaven. Because only such a one could represent Israel, Heaven sought Elijah.

When he heard Heaven’s voice calling, “Elijah… Elijah.” Elijah might have been taken aback. He might have said, “What is the reason for this? This is beyond my dreams. I never expected this to happen.” When he stepped forth in awe before the great will, Heaven said to him, “Since I am behind you, go and tell King Ahab.” With that word from Heaven, Elijah went to fight King Ahab on behalf of Heaven.

You should think that although there
are many men and women in the world,
there are only the two of you. You should
devote yourself completely to this one
woman, with the thought that she is
devoted to you. This is the Principle.
(Blessed Family – 887)

Richard:  This presents the core truth of the universe; God created mankind for love.

On the day you are really born as
God’s son…. Amongst the innumerable
stars, do you think there is a realm of
diamond stars or not? Think about it.
You want to have diamonds, don’t you?
You can’t say there isn’t a star made just
of gold. It is possible. How rich God, our
Father, is! Have you ever thought about
that? We can travel this infinite uni-
verse in a moment. Are you interested?
Are you truly interested? If so, what we
need to do is observe the normative laws
in accordance with God’s commands:
“Don’t do this!” or “Do that!” This is pos-
sible only when you observe what God
says to do or not to do. It is only logical
that this becomes impossible if you live
according to your selfish desires.
Can you abide by what God says to
do or not to do? Since human beings
have duality, they consist of mind and
body. Since the mind is the subject part-
ner, and the body the object partner,
mind and body must be united. Is that
right or wrong? (116-174, 1982.1.1)

1 Kings 19: 1-21

We cannot help thinking that there were aspects of sadness as well as hope for God, who set up Elijah to restore the Israelites, who had been captured alive by the enemy.

The chosen Israelites were being disgraced by worshipping Baal, a foreign god, and making Asherah poles. God called Elijah because He could not endure the sorrow of that. However, Elijah could not appear before the Father with a happy mind.

Elijah could not say, “Father! You are right. I will go the path You want me to go. I will assume the responsibility for which You have called me.” Elijah said, “I am nothing but a man of the people. Oh, Heaven, since there are many tribal chiefs who are greater than I, there is a king, there is royalty, and there are numerous Israelites, why have You sought after someone so insignificant as I?” Because of his great concern for Israel, Elijah could not help but unselfishly ask to be excused before Heaven, for he was a person of conscience.

peninsula should become a holy ground.
Shouldn’t we recover the Liaotung penin-
sula in Manchuria that used to be Kore-

Jesus and then recovered their nation.
Then do you believe that I, who live with
the title of returning Lord, would not be
able to recover our native land? Even if
the Soviet Union were to obstruct my

think we should enter negotiations to
recover parts of our native land which

the Soviet Union. (168-49, 1987.8.30)

suit each other well, or not? The whole

1 Kings 19: 1-21

After fallen history began, God came forth, holding onto the chosen Israel for a long time, unconcerned about His own great toil. After the lapse of three thousand years, He established King Saul with great hope and expectation. Because Saul could not fulfill his responsibility, however, the original will of God was prolonged through King David to the time of King Solomon. In other words, the will God wanted to realize by establishing Saul was prolonged 120 years.

King Solomon had a heavenly responsibility to build the holy temple by upholding the will of Heaven and to unite his people with it through his leadership. However, we understand that since he too committed sin, he ended up handing the people over to become puppets of Satan.

After King Solomon’s death, the Israelites were divided into the kingdoms of northern Israel and southern Judah by King Jeroboam and King Rehoboam. The Israelites were the chosen people. With one leader centered upon God, they were to act according to his commands. They were the people God had led through a history of toil. We know the sorrowful fact very well that the Israelites were divided into the two kingdoms of north and south, contrary to Heaven’s wish. All twelve tribes of Israel should have united with Heaven centered on one altar, standing on Heaven’s side. Continue reading “King Solomon Should Have Upheld the Will of Heaven”

On God’s Day, God wants human-
ity to fulfill the perfection of His true
love. To do this, humankind needs to
stand in the position of the perfect-
ed object before the perfected Subject.
The True Parents stand in this position.
God needs to be liberated by true love.
Through whom is this to be achieved? It
is through the True Parents. Knowing
this, I am able to liberate Him. Just as
I, taking the position of minus, attained
oneness with God as the Subject part-
ner, you too should also occupy the
minus position and attain oneness sub-
stantially, with the True Parents in the
plus position. You will thereby become
free to advance to the position of one-
ness with God. Such is the way of the
principle of re-creation. (275-333, 1996.1.1)

The reason people need to get mar-

God. In other words, a man and woman
cannot fully connect to the love of God
if they are not married. When a man

resides with them, and they become one
centering on this love. Then, God can
bequeath to them the whole universe,
including God Himself, His love, and
everything that belongs to Him. (135-327,

We are aware that numerous people on this earth have gone through a path of toil and have undergone a fight of blood and tears for the sake of the will. Today, we know that we must be the fruit of that blood in front of Heaven. We know that we must hoist the flag of victory on the base of the providence that remains. In this hour today, please allow us not to think we belong to ourselves. Since our minds are not ours, our lives are not ours, and the desire we cherish is not ours, please allow us not to relate to Heaven with self-centered minds. Since we began as the Father’s, Father, I pray deeply that You will allow this to be the hour when we belong only to You.

Our minds, our bodies, and our doctrines and assertions must all belong to the Father. Therefore, please do not tolerate the things that are not of You. If there are elements of evil in our minds and bodies, please eliminate them. By eliminating all doctrines and assertions that are not Yours, Father, I sincerely wish and desire that You will allow this to be the hour when we can move only in accord with what belongs to the Father.

Who can stand against Heaven, however great he may be on this earth? No one can appear before the Father with any excuses. Therefore, we realize that the time has come when we must repent from the heart, for we are steeped in sinful history. We have become offerings for Satan because of the sin and evil of history.

Father, although our minds and bodies should have been our own, they became offerings to Satan instead. Please allow us to revive the minds within us that can grieve over this. Please create contrite hearts that regard this matter with great indignation. Father, I ardently wish and desire that You will allow us to form ties with Heaven by being awakened to our worth and by rediscovering ourselves.

Those who live with the love of God
inside their hearts are sons or daugh-
ters of God. These are the central figures
of the whole universe who can govern
heaven and earth. Love is the essential
element enabling people to attain this
position. (9-173, 1960.5.8)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1567

How would democracy, which has
unfolded through a history of wars, be
brought to an end? Democracy would
naturally conclude with the advent of
the parents, the coming of the parent-
centered ideology. Hence, the Unifica-
tion Church declared to this world that
the era of the providence of salvation
has ended and has given way to the era
of the providence of restoration through
love. Many religions are unaware of this
truth. Pastors of established churches
do not understand what is meant by
the era of the providence of salvation
by love or the era of the ideology cen-
tered on the Heavenly Father, do they?
They wouldn’t know what the Ceremo-
ny of the Settlement of the Eight Stages
is. (194-325, 1989.10.30)

Let Us Halt in Our Steps and Behold the One Who Is Protecting Us

Psalm 121

No scripture reveals God’s labor and grief of the 6,000 years. However, scriptures extensively elaborate on goodness and the land of blessing where we can live.

Why did God take this approach? It is because God loves us. Because Heaven loves us, He has sought us in this manner. It can be said of our path toward God that joy cannot be attained instantly. Joy can be attained only after we go through the path of sorrow.

If someone on earth longs for the Kingdom of Heaven and longs to become a true son or daughter of Heaven, he should raise his hands and pray in tears, “Please let me shed God’s tears of the 6,000 years in my lifetime.” He must offer his life and risk heaven, earth and all created things as he cries out.

He who discovers that the Father cannot be found in a good, beautiful, precious, proud and glorious place, but is in a state of deep sorrow will become the master of goodness. You have to understand that such a person can become a true son or daughter of God. Continue reading “Alleviate God’s Sorrow”
