Build the Ranks of Heaven

I was glad to attend the memorial service for Edward Abendroth yesterday, August 18th.  Edward died suddenly on August 10th when a car ran into him while bicycling.  Let us remember Edward and his family in our prayers, including his wife Aika Becker Abendroth.

Currently the United Nations has
183 member states. Didn’t I bless 1800
couples? Similarly, in this period of
transition, 180 nations must be turned
around. The numbers 180 and 1800 sig-
nify the completion of the satanic num-
ber. These numbers come from six mul-
tiplied by three and four multiplied
by four. They are the numbers Satan
usurped from God, which is why we as
tribal messiahs were to originally restore
180 families; however, that number can
be reduced to 160 – they are providen-
tially equivalent. In fact, four times four
is the ideal number.
In the Seoul Olympics, 160 nations
participated. The number sixteen is also
involved in North and South Korea join-
ing the United Nations: North Korea, a
suzerain state of Satan, joined the Unit-
ed Nations as the 160th member state,
and South Korea joined as the 161st, sig-
nifying a new beginning. In terms of
indemnification, South Korea is stand-
ing in the lead. (272-284, 1995.10.8)

Originally, through our achiev-
ing the Blessing of 36 Million Couples,
everything would be made flat. In order
for any water to flow into the sea, it must
reach that level first. What type of water
flowing into the sea flows in the slow-
est? The waters of the great rivers are
the slowest in flowing into the sea. Does
it look like that? It flows in as slowly as
possible because river water wants to be
absorbed completely by seawater, which
is the main body. Everything in nature
moves and continues to exist accord-
ing to the laws of heaven and earth.
Then why would we begin to make fast-
er progress after the completion of the
Blessing of 36 Million Couples? That is
because we have already reached the bot-
tom of the mountain and the terrain has
become flat. Since we have surmount-
ed the peaks of formation and growth,
in terms of the realm of Satan we have
reached the point of surpassing the top
of the growth stage. Isn’t our next goal
360 million couples? That would be the
realm of completion. (288-148, 1997.11.27)

The Fall, having constituted a wrong-
ful marriage in the Garden of Eden, is
now being reversed by the True Parents
through rightful marriages. Clearing up
the mess created by the false parents,
the True Parents are abolishing hell
and blessing billions of ancestors in the
spirit world, and restoring the true par-
ent-child relationship centering on true
love and bequeathing the original true
love, true life, and true lineage. In this
way, the ownership of the model of true
love of the eight stages, which is God’s
ideal of creation, is perfected; that is, we
establish the eternal, unchanging, true
love tradition by going through true ges-
tation, infancy, fraternity, adolescence
(engagement), conjugality, parenthood,
grandparenthood, and finally kingship.
Upon this foundation, we can perfect
the model of true love, the parent-child
relationship.

Psalms 5

12 Our Lord, you bless those
    who live right,
    and you shield them
    with your kindness.

The Incredible Determination of Jesus

CSG 2179

People of filial piety will think of
their parents first when something good
happens in their lives. In the fallen world
people think of their spouse first when
they see something good. However,
unless you buy something precious for
your parents first, you cannot buy some-
thing for your spouse.

CSG 1282

After the growth stage in the three-
day ceremony, the man is restored to
the upper position. That is why in mak-
ing love on the third occasion, the man
should be in the upper position. After
completing this, the husband and wife
should offer the prayer that they have
become an eternal husband and wife,
and an eternal family that belongs to
God and that is the heir of heaven. Only
then can they truly start their lives as
husband and wife. Only when that is
accomplished, can they boldly walk into
the Kingdom of God as a family com-
pletely restored through indemnity. It
is that difficult to achieve. Therefore, if
you do not know about this, it is impos-
sible for you to be restored. You cannot
be restored if you don’t know this. In the
world today, many churches claim that
they will go to the Kingdom of Heaven if
they believe in Jesus, but this is total non-
sense. They are not going to the King-
dom of Heaven but to paradise. Paradise
is the waiting room. (90-134, 1976.10.21)

God is Seeking His People

CSG 2018

In the heavenly world of the future,
the time for living off a monthly salary
will pass away. As couples, you must pay
complete indemnity. Throughout the
ages of history, the rule of all creation has
been absolute faith, absolute love, and
absolute obedience. Because of love, you
also need faith and you also need obedi-
ence. Because of love. Even the God of
the entire universe is obedient to infinite
love. God invests and then forgets, and
so we also invest and forget what we have
invested. This is obedience.
Absolute faith is based on absolute
love. In order to achieve love, you need
absolute obedience. Until death, you
need love. Even if you die one hundred
times over, you need love, so you must
properly seek the way to it. That is why
dying and going to the spirit world is
not death but a way to seek God’s love.
It is not dying. It is the way to find God’s
love. God made the path of death for the
sake of love. If your heart and mind can-
not hold onto this higher level, then you
cannot restore love. (296-50, 1998.10.11)

A dog will enter the yard of even
the best of houses to relieve itself. If the
homeowner complains, “Oh! You dirty
little dog! Why are you coming round
to our house to defecate in our yard?”
then he is chasing away his blessings.
Instead, he should say, “Come on in and
relieve yourself.” (60-158, 1972.8.19)

Hometown and the Way to Enter
the Kingdom of Heaven
6.1. Hometown is a world of the
original creation
We are at a point of time when we
cannot hope to achieve world peace or
one unified world using human power,
wisdom, culture or anything else. Under
these circumstances, what is the main
problem? I believe that answering the
question as to whether God exists or
not is the most important issue. Once
all humankind clearly understands all
about God’s existence, they will clearly
understand the direction of God’s will.
When they understand this, the world
will become one world, a world of peace
and an ideal world. (56-131, 1972.5.14)

Richard:  It is really necessary to help everyone understand the nature of God and His Purpose and His Will.  We can know this clearly through the Divine Principle and the words of Jesus and Rev. Sun Myung Moon.

Proverbs 6:3

My child, suppose you agree
to pay the debt of someone,
    who cannot repay a loan.
Then you are trapped
    by your own words,
    and you are now in the power
    of someone else.
Here is what you should do:
    Go and beg for permission
    to call off the agreement.
Do this before you fall asleep
    or even get sleepy.
Save yourself, just as a deer
or a bird
    tries to escape
    from a hunter.

Flee From Immorality

CSG 2272

We know only too well that their
failure laid the ground for the bitter
anguish of a sad history. Through the
Fall we became distanced from God’s
laws, lost our true selves and trampled
upon God’s heart. And so, to recover
our true selves and the world of heart,
we have been groping to find our way
back through the course of restoration
according to the Word.
Fallen humankind fell to a position
more evil than that of any other form
of creation, a sorrowful position where-
in we cannot freely communicate with
God. Human beings cannot recover
from this fallen state on their own, so
God has enlightened them as He carried
out the history of re-creation. You should
know that by passing through the posi-
tions of servant, adopted son and son,
victorious dominion was attained and
that even the position of the True Par-
ents was restored. (14-239, 1965.1.1)

Jeremiah 31

33 Here is the new agreement that I, the Lord, will make with the people of Israel:

“I will write my laws
    on their hearts and minds.
I will be their God,
    and they will be my people.

34 “No longer will they have to teach one another to obey me. I, the Lord, promise that all of them will obey me, ordinary people and rulers alike. I will forgive their sins and forget the evil things they have done.”

Become on Object to God; Deny the Body

CSG p 333

As an omniscient, omnipotent, and
omnipresent being, there is nothing
God does not have and there is noth-
ing He wants to keep back for Himself.
Although He has everything, if there is
something He wants to present and be
proud of as being more precious than all,
what would that be? God needs only love,
and nothing except love. There is noth-
ing He needs but love. (108-223, 1980.10.16)

CSG p. 1502

The ideal family is the place where
the parents, children, husband and
wife, and brothers and sisters desire to
unite into oneness based on true love.
From such a place the eternal global
equalization begins, and consequently,
the God’s Kingdom on earth, followed
automatically by God’s Kingdom in
heaven. (300-226, 1999.3.14)

When holy men and holy women
join at the sexual organs through holy
love, holy life and holy lineage and give
birth to children, these children will go
directly to the heavenly kingdom. They
will not need religion or moral train-
ing.
When mind and body form a right
angle, when love and all other aspects
grow without any damage, so that the
internal and external aspects of his
or her personality are perfected, then
the person can understand everything
without being taught. I am like that.
Did I become the founder of the Unifi-
cation Church because I studied some-
where? No, I already understood things.
I know how things are. I come to under-
stand things without being taught. (211-

It is Most Important to Attend Jesus and His Representative on Earth

CSG 381

People like butterflies rather than
bees. It is because butterflies dance as
they fly. Everything that flies does so in
rhythm with a beat and with a melody.
Fast-flying creatures fly in time with a
beat; so do slow-flying ones. There are
various styles of flight, but, anyway,
everything flies according to a certain
rhythm. Also, the way deer run and
rabbits play in the mountains is musi-
cal. The way they hop around has a cer-
tain rhythm, and the way they eat also
has a musical quality. It is the same with
people; there is a certain rhythm when
we eat. These all express something
musically. If we think in this way – that
someone made this universe for me to
last for eternity and put it in place for
me – we should feel grateful to Him. We
should not think as an onlooker, as if
this were something to do with someone
in a neighboring village. There are high
mountains and low mountains. Do you
like there being high mountains with
low-lying land, or do you like only plain
and flat land? Having high and low is
better. Why is this so? It is because these
shapes assume a certain form that looks
as if it would dance. It is good when
these are in forms of all kinds and col-
ors, going up and going down, forming
all kinds of curves. Then, this creation is
Book 3 • True Love 382
like a dance. In nature, there are splen-
did dances and beautiful music; there is
wonderful artwork. So many such things
exist in nature. (87-321, 1976.6.27)

Ecclesiastes 5

 Don’t be surprised if the poor of your country are abused, and injustice takes the place of justice. After all, the lower officials must do what the higher ones order them to do. And since the king is the highest official, he benefits most from the taxes paid on the land.[d] Continue reading “It is Most Important to Attend Jesus and His Representative on Earth”

The Nature of Love

CSG  486

In the relationship of husband and
wife, if their love is joined through a
strong force, they must be joyful and
feel their partner is lovely, no matter
what that partner does. If the wife says
that she hates the smell coming from
her husband’s body or if the husband
thinks or feels that he hates the way his
wife moves, this is only because a per-
fect love has not been realized between
them. This married couple only joined
together for some superficial purpose or
interest. (Blessed Family – 887)
