It’s okay if we firmly grab hold of
the family. Aren’t all people bound to a
family? If we catch the family, then the
members of the National Assembly, the
ministers and vice-ministers of the cabi-
net, and even the president in the Blue
House, all will be caught. You should all
become leaders of tong and ban. Don’t
you agree? If the members of the Nation-
al Assembly, the important statesmen of
the country, the cabinet members, and
even the staff members of the military
will all become mobilized through the
leaders of the tong and ban movement,
then everything will be completed. We
can then work without a fight. Do you
understand? (167-21, 1987.6.14)

For us, the government is not the
issue. What we are trying to do is to find
a nation. We are aiming to grab hold of
tong and ban. If we do that, then the dif-
ficulty of finding that nation will auto-
matically be solved. (167-24, 1987.6.14)

In the world of love, it is the law of
nature never to permit the presence of
a third party; one must be alone with
one’s partner. This is the case for spar-
rows and insects as well. Then, from the
viewpoint based on evolutionary theo-
ry, how many ascending orders of love
in thousands of stages are there between
amoebae and human beings? Are there
not thousands of species of insects? From
plants to insects, there are thousands of
species. Yet there are people who believe
that these thousands of species and
human beings evolved from amoebae
through continuous development. Not
at all! Several thousands of stages of
love need to be passed through. The dis-
tinction of species is very strict. What,
human beings evolved from amoebae?
Those impostors! (227-296, 1992.2.14)

Richard: Here Rev. Moon points out the absurdity of evolutionary theory, that human beings could have evolved from amoebaes.

Prayer: Declaration Chil Il Jeol, the Cosmic Sabbath Sun Myung Moon July 7, 1997

Beloved Father! Today, 1997, July 7, 7 hours, 7 minutes and 7 seconds, centering on the 3.6 Million Couples Blessing, we have accomplished this year’s motto, “Let Us Be Proud of True Parents and Love True Parents by Accomplishing the 3.6 Million Couples Blessing.”

How hard You have struggled and borne the heart of han (bitter sorrow)! As Your children, True Parents, we are here with Your other children not knowing Your heart in this historical age. In the meantime, you sent True Parents to the earth so we could build the foundation where mankind could speak out Your heart and be educated about Your internal situation. Through that foundation, we came to know the sad history that since Adam and Eve fell as teenagers and their family was broken down by Satan’s scheme, humankind has been linked to fallen Adam’s family and Satan’s lineage instead of to God’s lineage.

Therefore, until now, history has kept the lineage of the realm of the archangel and the lineage of Satan. When we think about founding the realm of religion in order to establish the history of the new archangel’s position in the Kingdom of Heaven, we know that the providence of individual restoration is the history of regaining the elder sonship from the realm of the archangel.

We thank You for this great time when we are facing the age of the Second Advent, the center of the worldwide salvation through the Old Testament, New Testament, and Completed Testament eras. Now we can fix the problems of family breakdown and corrupted juvenile ethics originally caused by Adam’s fall.

In 1945, at the end of World War II, Christianity and the allied nations, which had the mission of a bride to welcome the Lord of the Second Advent, failed their responsibility as the bride. This loss of the world-level nation, an Abel nation, and Eve nation of Adam’s family, which carried the victorious hegemony in the world-level providence, created greater pain and suffering than the loss of a family in the Garden of Eden.

If Christianity had received the Second Coming of Christ centering on the allied nations, we could have held a historic worldwide Mass Blessing Ceremony so that humankind could have been liberated through the Blessing by linking with the lineage of True Parents after uniting the han (bitter sorrow) of Jesus, (whose mind and body were separated by Satan) and prepared a united world centered on Christian culture. At that time, by working with 800 million Christians, God’s desire to establish the Kingdom of Heaven on earth would have been completed within seven years, by 1952. Christian culture, however, rejected its bridal responsibility of receiving the Lord of the Second Advent, As Adam’s family turned over the fallen world to Satan during the fruitful growth period, Christianity and an Eve nation in the bridal role failed their responsibility and gave the victorious foundation at the worldwide level over to Satan all at once. As a result, fallen grief exists on the earth once again.

We are reminded of the sad history in which True Father alone had to walk the wilderness path. The han (bitter sorrow) that Adam’s family left on heaven and earth could not be compared to True Father’s path. True Father’s path was a time of deeper sadness than the course of Jesus, who could not unite people based on his family.

Yet, I realized that it was Your desire to end Satan’s lineage by liberating mankind centered on the ideology of a world family which would indemnify all of history. Also, I realized Your will which was to look for a place of rest and freedom in heaven and on earth.

Father, You have been yearning for a millennial world during seven millennia of history. I know how hard and significant that is! You tried to maintain the standard of Your wish by having Christianity observe the Sabbath on the seventh day.

Because all these tasks were not completed, I know that You have been sitting alone on Your throne in heaven and enduring the unbearable history of the realm of Satan like a prisoner. I found Your Fatherly heart that no one ever knew. You had to forget the situation that You could not forget, You had to re-create the condition into which You could not pour out Yourself, and You had to love those people whom You could ‘not love. In spite of sadness and even death, I pioneered the path in which I could console Your heart, and I endured persecution to prevail over the hill of forty years with the determination to face any kind of deadly path, Father.

The fatherland, which should be the central nation of all nations centered on the unified world of North and South, and the whole culture of East and West were lost. Even the clan which You prepared to complete the Blessing was lost, too. Unification Church members understand that I have had to walk the path of restoration for forty years. There has been fighting between the democratic world and the communist world because all the descendants of the clan which was to become the clan of heaven faced the situation of division.

I understand that these forty years represent the 4,000 years of providential history. Yet, no one has known Your painful sadness that for forty years True Parents have been persecuted by sovereign nations of the Satanic world that once used to persecute Christianity and Christians, as well as other religions and their people. These forces opposed Your will to comprehend the world.

All alone, all alone, all by Yourself. According to the directions given by You, who pioneered the path, I have fought and conquered the hills of persecution for forty years. This has been the battleground to declare Your individual resting place as well as the resting place for a couple, a family, a tribe, a nation, the world, and the cosmos. This place has been the ideal free environment of creation that You can call Your domain of freedom. Now it is completed, Father. Now, centering on True Parents, we are making the amazing declaration of the realm of the cosmic Sabbath.

Your son, Sun Myung Moon, who has lost the dream of his youth, of his 20′s and 30′s, while inheriting and tolerating the big heart of Heavenly Father, has conquered the hills of 40 years of agonizing history, while overcoming numerous failures that are filled with insults and bitterness.

As a result, the 3.6 million couples Blessing has been successfully completed. In place of Adam’s family, these families on the world level can receive the Blessing at once that Adam’s family failed to get. The realm of the Sabbath, where billions of people enter the realm of liberation, can evolve to both the Kingdom of Heaven in heaven and on earth. I thank You for that. The elder sonship had to be restored first, then parentship and kingship had to be restored. Father, I thank You for the completion of 3.6 million couples Blessing that breaks beyond the limit of three stages.

The elder sonship on a family level can be sustained on earth. The right of a family on a national level and a cosmic level can be sustained on earth as well. Therefore, because this is the time for receiving the age of kingship centering on a family, from today the real liberation can be declared. This is the Sabbath for God, who has not been able to rest in a family. Again, I sincerely thank You for that.

Today, it is 1997, July 7, 7 hours, 7 minutes, and 7 seconds. Also, Your son, Sun Myung Moon, is at the age of 77. These eight occurrences of the number seven signify that the number seven can connect to the number eight, becoming the Sabbath and the day of a new start, transcending the numbers seven and eight. All this is connected with the number seven. Now all Unification members, centering on a family which inherits the tradition, heart, and authority of heaven, can attend God. Now God can rest in a nation, the world, and the cosmos. We are facing the victorious time when the kingship of the Kingdom of Heaven on earth and in heaven are established at the same time. The foundation of the Sabbath where God and True Parents can travel freely expands from the family level to the cosmic level.

For this great work to be done, Mother, who can represent Eve’s nation, had to come to the United States of America, which is the Archangel’s nation, and to the United Nations to promote the fortune of unification, so that she can spread this fortune over the divided Korea, where the base camp for the liberation of the family can be founded to represent the liberation of people. Thanks to Your guidance and protection, True Mother could make three speaking tours during which she poured forth the words of True Parents. True Mother has opened up the Blessing for high-ranking officials by giving speeches in 16 places. Transcending the number 16, the Blessing that occurred vertically has become holier than ever.

True Mother has been welcomed in all her speaking tours by guests who represent women of all nations centering on women of the North and South. Today is a day of declaration based on these speeches. Tomorrow we will have another Blessing to declare the victorious realm of heaven in front of high-ranking Korean officials who represent the essential central figures and representatives of sovereign nations of the world. It means that we are entering the age of kingship on a family level. We attribute this Blessing, which the Unification Church received as the number one family Blessing team, to Your hard working path. If it was not for You, Korea would have no place to exist. But as You and True Mother are working together, we are having this great opportunity, and I am very grateful, Father.

A thousand thanks to You, Father, for having been able to complete both the foundation of the victorious 40 years and the Declaration of the Realm of Cosmic Sabbath for Parents of Heaven and Earth at the same time.

As the foundation of the Sabbath of the age of kingship on a family level, national level, worldwide level, and cosmic level are established on earth, Your will is facing the time when this country is called as the center of God’s providence of salvation, liberating the world, and bringing the world of love. Please gladly remember this.

Now I am offering the path that Your son has walked on with tears and then declaring this to be an anniversary date. Please allow me to do so. From this moment on, I am declaring the age of liberation. As You have wished to act on the whole body in its totality, with all authority and everything, please fulfill Your wishes. Please claim the realm of liberation of mankind. I sincerely wish and ask for Your Blessing to move on to the liberating Kingdom of Heaven. Now, it is the day and the time to stop the tears of sadness and to remove all the shed tears and all the tear stains from True Parents’ family. I sincerely wish that You will receive this declaration of liberation in the name of True Parents. May You realize Your wish to have prestige to travel freely among Your beloved children, countries, world, and the cosmos. May the families of True Parents who work for Your liberation be able to travel around the world freely and come back home without any trouble.

We Are Leading a Purity and True Family Movement

Happy 24th Declaration of the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath for the Parents of Heaven and Earth
Declared July 7th, 1997 by the Heavenly (lunar based) Calendar
Today and tomorrow we will feature a special reading for this Holy Day.

Declaration of the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath for the Parents of Heaven and Earth

This is the speech True Father, Rev. Moon gave on July 7, 1997 and through which he established Chil Pal Jeol (Eight Sevens Holiday).

You should know the sacredness of the name, “True Parents.” All creation was made for True Parents substantial realm. True Parents’ ideal realm must be realized even if it is at the cost of all that was created. The creation exists to achieve this realm. God created all things [Gen. 1–25] with this concept, which he had before the Creation. The name “True Parents,” which God had sought for thousands of years, will cut off all tumultuous things happening in the world and will achieve an ideal world, which is nothing less than the globalization of blessed families.

How do we globalize blessed families? True Parents will come and completely reverse the consequences of Adam’s corruption, which occurred at the age of sixteen, resulting in false love and the collapse of the family. Centered on True Parents, the path through which all people on earth can enter the kingdom of heaven has been opened—a path through which a perfected Adam’s family, which befits the original ideal envisaged at the Creation, is from God’s lineage, receives the blessing, serves God and leaves behind God’s lineage.

The kingdom of heaven has been empty until now. Adam’s family did not enter that kingdom, nor did any other ancestor until now. Thanks to True Parents, we will be organized into a first generation and a second generation and completely fill the kingdom of heaven. Today is the day through which we proclaim this liberated realm. What day is it today? It is the day of the Declaration of the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath for the Parents of Heaven and Earth.

Throughout history, the only field that God could take possession of was the realm of the Sabbath. Everything else, however, belonged to Satan. The sons and daughters were not God’s nor was all of creation or even the nation. Nothing belonged to God. In order to return everything to God, True Parents had to come.

Our ideal family is the home where God rests. We, therefore, need to understand in what kind of home God can rest. God lost the home where he could rest. Hence, finding the ideal family for God meant finding that home where he could rest. Can everyone reach that level of home where God can rest? What level is it? There is a home of rest on the individual level, on a couple’s level and on a family level. A family level home includes sons and daughters. Next, the home in which God can rest at the family level needs a tribe, a tribal home of rest. Transcending the tribal level home is one at the national level. Following this is a home at the global level, one at the cosmic level and finally God’s home of rest. How many levels of homes are there? There are eight levels.

What has the formation of this home of rest centered on? True Parents and the True Children. An entire line should form centered on this family. That is why Unification Church members must become tribal messiahs. You should become familial messiahs and tribal messiahs. After forming a nation, you become a national messiah and then a global messiah. The global messiah is the king of kings. When this happens, the kingdom of heaven forms on earth.

We are promoting purity and absolute sex. Absolute sex is sex based on true love, which is why we are leading a purity and true family movement. True love is the center of this purity and true family movement. A family becomes a pure, true family centered on true love. Without true love, neither purity nor a true family emerges.

The providence of salvation is the history of restoration, which must pass through process of recreation based on the principle of indemnity. Otherwise, perfection is unattainable. How shocking is a history based on this standard! That is why you must forget all of Satan’s sons and daughters. How great would God’s pain be being in a position where he cannot forget those whom he would rather forget? How much did God invest from an unfathomable position for those whom he cannot forget? What, then, is God trying to achieve by investing in this manner? He is looking for an object partner of love.

Who can understand God’s lonesome circumstances in loving those whom he cannot love? God is in a position in which he cannot interfere even if we follow a path that may lead to the destruction of the entire cosmos nor can he forget those whom he would prefer to forget. Even though he should break off from them, he continued investing in them. That is not the end. He has to love them more than he did the original Adam and Eve.

Given that he is unable to forget what he would rather forget, who can understand God’s heart and how lonely it is? Who can truly understand God’s circumstances as he repeatedly invested, forgot that he had invested and invested again in people that could not be recreated, for thousands of years? Who can truly understand God’s heart as he loved those people who has left behind the worst and had many bruises, people whom he would rather not love?

Because I was aware of that tradition, I am investing even my life to save the enemies’ children, people that deserve to be beaten and thrown into hell. You should be aware that the circumstances True Parents are in require that they love such children more than their own sons and daughters, even if it means sacrificing their own children. That is why, no matter the amount, the existing seawater is insufficient to fill the valley formed by the tears that have been shed. Only true love can fill this valley.

We must follow the path of not forgetting even what we would rather forget, investing in those we cannot invest in and loving those we cannot love. Even if one is to die once, twice, thrice, one should follow that path even after resurrection. The Old Testament Age failed. The New Testament Age failed. The Completed Testament Age failed. That I had to go through a forty-year wilderness course within one generation is grievous. The failure of one generation of Adam’s family is not a problem. This is sadness greater than that experienced when Jesus could not rule over all nations.

From that position, I have pioneered the way that can open the door of liberation to all nations, based on families worldwide, and guide all people in one direction.

Just as the people of Israel set off to establish a nation when they were suffering in Egypt, families that Satan had imprisoned have become families in the ideal kingdom of heaven that can enter the liberated kingdom of heaven. This is that very moment and the fact that we can partake in it is indeed something we should feel great gratitude for and respond by rendering due glory. This moment constitutes nothing less than the declaration of the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath for the Parents of Heaven and Earth.

Richard: This Holy Day has a special meaning for our family. Stacey, Sarah and I were in South Korea at the Chung Pyung Lake retreat center when True Father, Rev. Moon, declared this Holiday in the early morning. Later that morning, Rev. Moon visited the tent where the workshop participants were studying. At that time Rev. Moon spoke to the participants, including me, Stacey and Sarah.
Furthermore, this holiday is integrally linked to the 3.6 million couples Blessing held at Robert F. Kennedy stadium in Washington, DC on November 29th, 1997. Stacey and I lived in east Capitol Hill, Washington DC at that time, and until 2016. The stadium was very near our Home Church area, and we promoted the Blessing in our neighborhood. We also were involved, with John Robbins with inviting the RFK Blessing event to Washington, DC. John had invited Mayor Marion Barry to host the event. He had agreed. But when Rev. Moon came to speak, Marion Barry failed to show up to give the invitation personally. I asked then city Councilmember Harry Thomas, Sr. to give the invitation letter to Rev. Moon, and he did.

Declaration Day of the Realm of Cosmic Sabbath for the Parents of Heaven and Earth

Happy Proclamation of the Cosmic Realm of Rest for the Parents of Heaven and Earth! Find a special reading from this Holy Day below.

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
August 9, 1997
Report from KoreaUnofficial notes from August 9, 10 and 11, 1997

Richard: Stacey, Sarah and I were in Korea on the day that this holiday was proclaimed. We also lived in the neighborhood in Washington, DC where the 36 million couples Blessing was held on November 29, 1997, and we participated in that Blessing.

At the Kuri Training Center outside Seoul, at seven seconds past seven minutes past seven on the seventh day of the seventh month of 1997, True Father prayed to offer up the victory of meeting the 3.6 Million pre-blessing goal, and creating a new holy day. The official title of the holy day has not yet been established in English, but it will be something like the title below. (Later, in the subsequent conferences, True Father set the new goal of us achieving the 36 Million within 8 months, by next April, and the 360 Million by January 2001. At the time of the declaration, there were over 8 Million Couples who had received the pre-blessing, with Korea leading with a total of 1.05 Million, followed by the Philippines with 950,000, Nigeria with 750,000 and Ghana with 650,000. They received prizes as the top four: $400,000, $300,000, $200,000, $100,000, and True Father said these prizes would be multiplied by 10 for the top four winners in the 36 Million Blessing. No specific country or continent goals were set). Throughout his prayer, True Father was overcome with tears. Afterwards, he told Chung Hwan Kwak that he was crying so deeply that it completely overwhelmed his mind. All the participants (whom True Father estimated were 7,000 in all, representing the whole world) were moved by the great emotion True Father showed in his prayer. Clearly this was no ordinary occasion, but one of cosmic moment. True Father also said later that this was the most important proclamation he had ever made. The content of his prayer was summarized by a translator later. Christianity should have embraced True Father in 1945. Because they did not, he had to go the seven-year course to indemnify their failure, and then restore all things through all levels in the 40-year course. Now, through the victory of the 3.6 Million Couples, we have the national foundation to protect the tribe, family, couple and individual, for the first time in history. Thus, it is now possible to declare the realization of the cosmic realm of rest for the True Parents. The goal was achieved through the cooperation of the spirit world and the angelic world. Now we can go ahead to achieve the blessing of 36 Million and 360 Million Couples, and thus the whole world, liberating all families in the world from Satan. This is a day of thanks and celebration, and the declaration of victory. After the prayer, the ceremonies of a holy day were performed, with bows, the recitation of the pledge, the prayer of True Parents and the cutting of a cake. At 10 am, True Parents’ returned and True Father delivered a speech in which he explained the significance of the day and the proclamation. Unofficial notes from the simultaneous translation of Lyn Kim follows. Proclamation of the Cosmic Realm of Rest for the Parents of Heaven and Earth The idea of True Parents existed before the creation. The ideal of creation was for all things to exist in pairs, and for humankind in couples, so that true love could flow. In puberty, men and women are drawn to each other, attracting God, who dwells in the unity of man and woman. When they are one, they transcend themselves to become like God. The internal nature of God was expressed in Adam; the external in Eve. Hence, the unity of Adam and Eve brought together the internal and external aspects of God. They did not realize this; they did notunderstand how frighteningly important their relationship was. They should have been one in God, realizing Heaven. The fall prevented the realization of the ideal of True Parents. Men and women need to experience love but in order to experience an object you must have senses. Likewise, if there is no object there can be no existence. Therefore, God had to create, and He created us with five senses so that He could relate to us. People don’t know how much God seeks love. God as all-knowing and all-powerful is superseded by God as the center of love. Christianity is working for the salvation of individuals because Jesus was single and could not establish a family. Individual salvation, however, represents only the angelic level. We are the religion of t he Completed Testament Age, centered on saving families. We need to get Satan out of the foundations of everything, which he has occupied and dominated. Once Satan is out, we can create the family of God. In the past, various people tried to use the True Parents. For example, former president of Korea Chun Doo Hwan. But he betrayed me and now he is ruined. I told his predecessor, President Park, to do the Sae Maoul (Village Renewal) movement. He took the ideal from me. President Noh Tae Woo is also useless. I am prospering while all of them are declining. Kim Young Sam is dominated by Christians. He promised them that he would destroy the Unification Church. All those who have not fulfilled their promises to mehave fallen into disgrace. The True Parents should be the center of the world. I know all the presidents of South America. If I call them, they will come. I don’t need money, power, only God’s true love. We need a family that is one, ending Satan’s rule. You are like thieves who cannot be forgiven; you use the animal and vegetable kingdoms for yourselves, when they are from God. You take them as if they were yours. You cannot imagine what God went through to establish the True Parents, the family and lineage. Korea is the only country in which only the man establish the lineage. Korean women have suffered more than any other women. Korea has made all the conditions to restore history. It’s a country in which parents are honored more than anywhere else in the world. God needs filial piety and fidelity, and therefore He chose Korea. We now have 8 Million Couples, so we can achieve 36 Million by November 29.In South America, we can become one with Christianity, for this purpose we have been working with George Bush and Gerry Falwell. We do not have a sectarian doctrine, just principles of God. In the past, there were no families in the spirit world. Now, through the blessing, we are making families that can continue in the spirit world. There is no place that cannot receive the blessing now. Stop hiding.Go to the leaders and ministers of your country and tell them this is the way to reverse the fall. Ours is a religion for families, not individuals. Thus, it is of benefit to society as a whole. True Mother has done a 16-city speaking tour, including addressing the Moon and Han tribes. Through her life of faith and sacrifice, True Mother has become the Holy Mother. Heaven is empty. We need to fill Heaven with families. Through the fulfillment of conditions on earth, God should be able to move back and forth between heaven and earth, without facing barriers. This is the day on which God and True Parents can rest. The conditions to create a realm of rest for God are accomplished in eight stages: individual, couple, family, tribe/ancestors, nation, world, cosmos and God. True Parents have accomplished this, but all families must achieve it through restoration. We need fidelity and absolute sex. We need true love. Without true love, there is no fidelity and true family. A true family must have fidelity and purity. In Korea, the first son inherits the role of the parents, not other relatives, such as uncles. Koreans talk about dying a lot. Korea has in its folk songs the things about life which concern God. The FFWP [Family Federation for World Peace] was formed so late. Already there are so many other religions. Many of the existing religious organizations have attacked us, but we have come out stronger. The ideal of the realm of rest for us is to have the peace to be able to have the wife at home and to be able to spend time with her, to be able to relax and enjoy all things together. There will be unchanging heaven and earth in peace. If you want, you will be able to sleep during the day. You will be able to be like a flower, living in harmony with your surroundings. The wife can take care of the children while the husband can dominate the whole world and take care of the family. The True Parents have shed more tears than anyone. We must become true parents, true teachers and true lords. North Korea’s Juche doctrine denies the value of people, whereas our teaching values all people and seeks to bless them. Even if you die for your mission, your children and grandchildren will follow you and bring it to completion. If we die on the way to God, we will be in His eternal embrace. Everyone said 3.6 Million Couples was impossible. The fact that we made the goal shows that it wasGod’s will. By getting so many couples, people have to bow down before us. Now that we have achieved the goal, are you going to sit around eating, or be unfaithful to your spouse? Now is the time to rush forward to complete the mission. The father has to be big and strong, like the sky; the mother has to be close and detailed. When God created, he needed a form that would enable Him to be the father of a family and the world. And God needed a body for the female side. Adam and Eve should have observed the behavior of animals and known what to do themselves. If the Archangel had waited, he could have participated in the joy of Adam and Eve. Perhaps the Archangel held Eve close to him to put her to sleep. Being that close, a sexual feeling could have developed, leading eventually to the fall. Eve went to Adam to be saved, but God could not accept their relationship and they were cast out of the garden. After what they had done, the consequences became inevitable. So we lost true love at the very beginning. I have a foundation which is frightening, enabling me to proclaim God’s rest. I don’t seek to please anyone. I scold leaders of business groups, anyone. The head of Samsung, for example, is just a leader of a business group. My foundation is worldwide. Who would you follow? I fight with the rod of God’s truth. Our truth must go out to the whole world, to all mankind. It is not just the doctrine of a small church, I am a king of the world, including the academic world. God has had no place to rest on earth because all things were separated after the fall. Can we have world peace if mind and body are disconnected and husband and wife are fighting? True love is the most important thing to God. You must know this. When Adam and Eve fell, husband and wife and the whole world were lost. God had lost what could not be lost. Everything came under Satan. There nothing left to love for God. Now humanity has fallen to the level that grandfathers have relations with their granddaughters, brothers with their sisters, and so on. Satan has claimed everything precious to God. Adam fell at the age of 16. At 17 or 18, he could have been blessed by God with Eve. When the Fall reached as far as Adam (from the Archangel through Eve), God had to the very beginning. This has been the course of restoration. God could not forget what He had lost, the very thing that could not be lost. There was no one He could love. Everything was Hell. He could not touch His own creation, the clouds, the universe, because it had been claimed by Satan. However, at the same time He could not discard His own creation. He had to take responsibility for those he had created. He had to love those He could not love. He had to sacrifice those close to Him, His own sons and daughters, for those He could not love. God has had to overcome obstacles higher than high and deeper than deep in order to restore True Parents. The Old Testament era failed, so did the New, but God went on. He had to start again and again, with so much suffering and shedding so many tears. God chose Israel, but it was lot. It is incredible to be able to participate at this historic occasion, the establishment of a true family through the realization of cosmic rest for the parents of heaven and earth. At the fall, even the animals went to Hell. The world wars were to pay indemnity to restore the world. Now the world is beginning to bow before conscience. At this time, God is making a foundation even for Christians to come back into the providence. We offer three cheers of Mansei on this day, but the time must come when the whole world offers three cheers of Mansei. We have to love all the creation, the air, the animals, the plants, centered on God. For this reason, True Parents go to nature, to inform the creation how happy it will be to return to God. Nature, for its part, is delighted to meet the representatives of God on earth, the True Parents. We need to develop the leisure industry that can enable people to enjoy the creation. We will create natural areas where people will be moved by the beauty of nature. They will learn about God through nature. Nature has suffered at the hands of people, who in their ignorance have exploited it. Because of the fall, nature could not receive love through people. The purpose of creation is to be one with God. Man and woman must be one with each other and one with nature. Everything was separated from God and from everything else through the misuse of the sexual organs of Adam and Eve. Now all things must be restored through absolute sex. God protects the Unification Church because the purpose is absolute love. Your mind and body must become one, centered on true love. You need to reach the point where you can be naked and still centered on God. A women dreams of having a husband who will not hurt her. God has looked for this standard of husband, too. Arirang is a song about the search for the peak of love. We have passed 12 peaks through the blessings: 3, 36, 72, 124, 430, 777, 1800, 6,000, 30,000 took the blessing to the world level in the formation stage, 360,000 in the growth stage and 3.6 Million in the completion stage. No one believed wecould achieve 30,000 couples. Likewise for the 360,000 and 3.6 Million. If you have absolute faith and obedience, even if you go to jail, its ok in trying so hard to release God’s heart. There is no one as pitiful as me. I have no family, no brothers, only God. I gave up resting and playing. I worked and prayed while others rested and slept. Those who opposed me have now come into the Unification Church. I had to go the lonely way to be the son of God and restore the sins of the world. I have been betrayed so many time, but I have had to keep going. There will come a day when women will beg to be restored, so that they can be freed from their course of suffering. Mother and I have tried to make it possible for Korea to be blessed as the chosen nation. We need to bring the dominion of God. We are now building planes and boats and we are developing 400 square miles of land in South America. We will be able to feed the hungry people in Africa. We need to prepare an age in which I can go anywhere in the world. We have to have the heart to reach all people on earth. We have to go to the person who is our greatest enemy to heal the heart. Husband and wife must love each other so much, not like the enemies of the past but in a relationship in which God can dwell. Man must be able to bring woman back to God. You must have dominion over your body so that it brings a climax to your partner and no one else. You must not get involved in gambling. If you do, cut off your hand! You must not get involved in things in which Satan can get involved in. You have to be loving with your wife. If you go to someone else, you are inviting the punishment of heaven. Are you going to follow spiritual or physical love? Women must keep purity until marriage. God cannot rest until couples become one. This is such a difficult moment in history. There is a great battle between the realms of heaven and hell. You must offer devotion. If you are at a meeting of the most beautiful people on earth, you should not be interested in them for yourself, only in your spouse. Even if yourmother-in-law and husband are difficult, you have to go that way, until you reach the beauty, the port of glory and victory. All my life I have gone the opposite direction to the general flow of humanity. In this way, I have been able to make progress more quickly. I have tried to go beyond the mountain of opposition. If parents fight, it creates a problem for the children. Parents have to make the way for God to come into the family. No people are that way yet. You are all failures. You must make a place for God to rest in your couple. You must be one for 1000 years or 10,000 years for God to be able to rest in your couple. I think we have 7,000 people here so I will take your agreement as representative of the agreement of all humanity. From family to tribal level, you have to forget what cannot be forgotten, to invest in what cannot be invested in. Through creating unity through the eight stages, all will become one. The order of love has been broken because Adam and Eve fell. The collapse of the contemporary world has occurred to open the way for the spread of the foundation of the individuals, families, tribes, nations, the world and cosmos. Get the 3.6 Million Couples to find ten couples each and we will reach 36 Million. Get people in your lineage to do likewise. Focus your prayers and efforts on your 160 tribal blessed couples, not on the large figure of 36 Million. You can do 10 families in 2 days. I have cried a lot because you have not followed the way of God. Chung Hwan Kwak comments: True Father said this was the most important proclamation in Unification Church history. The cosmic realm of rest is currently just of True Parents. We can still be attacked by Satan, and Satan can laugh at our families, tribes, nations, etc., because they are not at the true standard. True Parents’ proclamation was of the beginning of the era of rest. Chung Hwan Kwak said that he felt that he was still very distant from True Father’s heart, and had to repent about the standard of his own family. We need to look at ourselves and our families. True Father showed how restoration goes from the individual to the couple to the family, etc. True Father said that in his proclamation prayer he wept so deeply that he could not control his own mind and body. I felt judged by those words. The proclamation should be a point of new beginning. You have all worked so hard for the 3.6 Million blessing. I wish to express my thanks. Because of you I could tell True Father that the goal had been met early. So often we do not achieve the goals set for us, it was a joyful moment when the goal was reached on July 15. When I called True Father in Alaska, he said Mansei, and ordered that a celebratory banquet be held. There have been so many miracles related to the 3.6 Million Couples in many countries. This because of True Parents’ foundation. We need to have q heart of gratitude. True Father said that all the events of this blessing should be recorded in a special book about it. In 1995 I originally pledged 210,000 couples for the 3.6 Million Blessing. At that time True Father scolded me and added a one to the beginning, making it 1.2 Million. Now, miraculously, that target has already nearly been met. True Father especially wanted Korea to fulfill its goal. Through True Mother’s tour, there has been an outpouring of spirit, and over the last 20 days there has been an explosion of blessings. Please keep going. Tell members about True Father’s appreciation for their efforts and success. In Korea, many were blessed at banquets or other ceremonies organized for relatives and other groups as an opportunity to explain the blessing, with the people often invited for a meeting of family members, etc. The explanations and conduct of the pre-blessing ceremonies have set a good standard for the world, being quite comprehensive. I have been worried about the often radical methods used for the pre-blessings around the world. However, when I reported about one instance to Father, he was just so happy about the result. People are now blessed in the streets, in stores, in homes, on beaches, everywhere. The providence is expanding wider and wider. As leaders we need to be concerned how we can teach people, so that they can reach a suitable level for the blessing. We also have to educate couples to the point that they can go out and bless ten more couples, so that we can reach our goals. Those of you who do not educate couples as you go along will find it increasingly difficult to build a strong and wide blessing foundation in your country. I have received quite a few reports questioning the blessing practices of other leaders and members. I have not answered these faxes because in general they do not reflect the understanding that we are in a new providential age in which True Parents’ blessing is offered to almost anyone, anywhere. The old procedures no longer apply in many cases. For example, in some cases the holy wine is given to onespouse, who takes the rest home for the other spouse to drink later. Korean members have been on fire to achieve their goals because they were told they would not be able to attend True Father’s speeches if they did not achieve the 160 couples. The main point to keep in mind is that True Parents want to give the blessing to as many people as possible as soon as possible, and therefore the method is not the main thing. The top ten countries are: Korea 1,050,000; Philippines 950,000; Nigeria 750,000; Ghana 650,000; Sudan 505,000; Taiwan 487,000; Russia 286,000; Mexico 230,000; USA 220,000; Zaire 173,000. True Father’s heart and mind are full of the 36 Million and 360 Million Blessings. He would like to reach 3.6 billion by 2000. (Single blessings cannot be counted). Please put an extra effort into bringing unmarried young people, or recently married couples, which wewant to use for the RFK stadium. Each country should send at least one couple to the stadium blessing, preferably a new couple (matched by True Father or recently married and blessed if there is no matched couple available). Matters such as visas, air travel and hotel reservations should be checked into from now. The younger couples will probably be placed on the stadium field, with older ones taking up the stands. Everything in the blessing will be in the media, including the matching, indemnity stick, etc., so that the whole world will know what the blessing is about. All the practical arrangements for the eight conferences at the WCSF [World Culture and Sports Festival] are being completed. We will distribute a CD with 120 of True Father’s speeches and other material. Later, all of True Father’s words will be put on one CD, which will be a great resource for all our ministers, leaders and those researching True Father’s words and life. There will be a program for accessing various topics, etc. True Father has invested a lot in technology in Korea so that we can use state of the art techniques for dissemination of the world and publicizing True Parents’ activities and projects. Some points and reports from the leaders’ conference with True Father August 10 and 11 True Father on August 10, 1997 In the future there will be no translation into Korean. Only those who can understand Korean will be invited to conferences. To the Japanese present, True Father said: You must learn Korean in three years. The Japanese way is not heaven’s way. Study Korean, study Korean, study Korean. When you go to the spirit world you should speak Korean, however in the spirit world one uses the language of the heart and therefore earthly languages are not so important. You should spend three times the amount of time you consume eating in studying Korean. Culture comes from language. Korean is a step above Japanese. Your descendants should know the language of your hometown. Those who have not studied Korean have felt it is not important. The Korean National Messiahs must teach Korean for three years. They must raise up someone can become the president of the country. For myself, I still have the mind to study the contents of the book. You need Korean and Japanese leaders to understand True Parents’ tradition. If you can understand me, it is different. If the Korean National Messiahs don’t learn the language of their mission countries, they should go home. You can’t just sit in your country and say you only want to teach the principle or only meet the top people. You have to help the unfortunate people as well. You have to be willing to be educated. Dr. Pak thought he was great, so I had to put him down, so that he could become a true person. True Father August 11, 1997 This is the time for National Messiahs to take responsibility. Opportunities pass, so this opportunity must be grasped by the National Messiahs. We will mobilize the spirit and angelic worlds, so that unimaginable things will take place. National Messiahs can mobilize these forces, since they are in the position of ambassadors of True Parents. They are in the position of True Parents for their country. They have to have a connection through good ancestors to be able to mobilize the spirit world. The National Messiahs have a position that is higher than that of the leaders of the nation they are assigned to. This is the age of instant indemnity. If you make mistakes, your family will suffer. For God to work in your country you should be a master of recreation. Pay attention to people at lower levels of society. They tend to be more honest. If you block the blessing, National Messiahs and members will pay. The National Messiah is so important that if he does well or not will affect the nation. The National Messiahs should make more conditions and make more effort than the religious leaders of their countries do.God is the master of absolute faith and belief in His own world. God made all things through love, and all things have been waiting to meet their rightful owner. You should be the owner, for love. You should seek to make your objects greater than you. You have to believe with a heart of love. You have to obey with a heart of love. Love is greater than faith and obedience. Faith and obedience lay the foundation for love. If someone has good merit, with one mistake this can be erased. The proclamation of cosmic rest is good condition. All have to bow their heads in front of it, including God. You can go to heaven if you are grateful all the time. I cannot deny my blood relationship with you. You can do what I ask, and go where I go. Members are connected to True Parents through the blessing. Men and women go into circular movement as they become one. You have to feel as if your country was your own body. Were you blessed by force of from your own desire? You were drawn to the Unification Church. You should make a condition of harmony; brothers and sisters should be reconciled first. If you ignore this, you must pay. For example, if a wife is betrayed by her husband and goes to the spirit world with resentment, the husband must pay for that. You have to make a new beginning for your family and your nation, otherwise you and your nation will be ruined. You must leave behind old habits. America did not develop in the providence because the leaders there had the attitude of “you must obey me”. The US also sucked money from Japan. I made all the conditions for you. If you do not make matching conditions you will be accused. There are many in the Unification Church who went against me and died a miserable death. Only the parents of heaven and earth should rest, because they have made all the conditions to do so. The king must be at the level of the poorest people. Without suffering cannot pay indemnity. When you go to South America as a National Messiah you must be South American, not Korean. You should visit suffering people and poor people. If you have money, don’t think about using it for your family and yourself. Think about using it for the nation. If you have no money, God will fill your wallet. It is amazing how this works. Love flows to a world of peace and love. We want to become the object of God, to become perfect. The mind and body must become one, a unified pair; likewise husband and wife. If husband and wife can’t become one, they can’t go to the world peace, the level plain. You have to love even if you die three times. Without vertical love, you cannot be one on the horizontal level. Your orientation has to be from the vertical. Only a 90 degree angle takes you to God. Anything else leads to Satan. As husband and wife, you are free to do whatever you want. In the act of love, if the husband is vertical, the wife can turn 360 degrees. Faces with a nose bent to the left usually belong to a liar, whereas a twisted mouth usually implies susceptibility to disease. The body should be balanced. Shoes should wear out evenly. In the world of true love, vertical and horizontal oneness will expand. To National Messiahs: Don’t get into arguments; Don’t claim everything for yourself; Pray to find good people, more capable than yourself; You have to fulfill your mission even if you die; You have to really invest yourself; You have to give and give and give again so Satan cannot accuse you;If you need money, you should take loans if necessary; You have to be willing to die for God’s will; You have to bring heaven and earth together; Don’t turn our good foundation upside-down. My resentment is that I could not give more. Be willing to support your continental director. If he does more for your country than you do, then it becomes his responsibility. You are parents for your nation, so you cannot fight. You have to raise your members. If you keep them for your own projects, you will be destroyed. True Father then established prizes for the four top nations: Korea $400,000, Philippines $300,000, Nigeria $200,000, Ghana $100,000. He said: I would like to give $100 million. In the next 8 months do 36 Million Couples; then 19 months after that do 360 Million (by January 2001). True Father to Japanese members: Indemnity should be paid by women. Japan as the Eve nation should solve the money problems of the world. The resentment of women is that there are no true men, only Archangels. Japan was made Eve in order to restore women, because Satan claimed the world through a woman. By reclaiming women we can reclaim all from Satan. In the expansion of the blessing providence, after the 3.6 Million Blessing was achieved the path of blessing expansion is no longer uphill. It now goes down hill, such that the providence for the blessing should expand very rapidly. The reason for this is that God now has the way to claim authority, and all Satan has will be destroyed. Only the Cain realm can be destroyed because there is a condition to project the Abel realm. We have gone beyond the tribe level in the blessings, therefore members can go to other countries to win their own 160 couples. Families from different nations should live together in a condominium style home. Korean is the language that should be used by the families from different countries. The 160 people represent around seven generations, hence restoring 160 couples represents restoring seven generations of your family. Please make money and give it to me, I will give it to the nations in need. If we don’t go strongly the way of indemnity, Satan does not back off. True Mother has toured Korea three times, and Korea has now won first prize (for blessings). Therefore Korea has qualified as the homeland of faith. Don’t be someone who cuts down the leader. Just do your own mission. Do you have the Hari Kiri spirit? Because you do not you are not succeeding. True Father then gave the official instructions. Highlights: 1. About the proclamation: We must cross 12 peaks on the path of blessing. Those ahead are the 36 and 360 Million Couples. Once 3.6 Billion is reached, heaven will come down on earth. II, Establish the right to settle as a family. Mind and body must be one; husband and wife must be one; parents and children must be one. All family members must be one in heart. You must educate your tribe. Be a model for it. III. This is the age to restore kingship: family and tribe have to become one. Internal and external relations must become one. We have to train people how to love nature. IV. Begin to educate all federation in your country. National education must be global in perspective. All families must get a worldwide viewpoint. We must educate the elderly. V. Make an airplane company in 185 countries. This will be complimentary to the new newspaper providence. Form an advisory board for the newspaper. Connect to martial arts and cultural people in your country. Make a federation of universities. Make a federation for high school students, and one for elementary students as well. True Father to Japanese: Because you can’t make the money I need I can’t do what is necessary to restore the world. Chung Hwan Kwak’s Points There will be the holy wedding of Young Jin Nim and Hyung Jin Nim on September 5 in New York. After the Japanese sisters win 180 couples in their mission country, they should return to Japan to do the same with Japanese couples. However, they must coordinate with their central figures. Chung Hwan Kwak said he would talk to True Father about what the ideal time would be for their mission in their country. When the sisters return to Japan, they should return to the organization they left, either the Unification Church, Buddhist group or Korean Unification Church. When they return to Japan, the sisters will be under a Japanese leader. We must follow the proper procedures for getting and keeping visas. The Japanese foreign ministry has become very negative due to several abuses of the normal procedures for getting and renewing visas. The impression we have made is that we do not follow rules. Chung Hwan Kwak also mentioned that National Messiahs should respect the system set up by True Parents. They should go through the continental director as necessary, The person who is the Continental Director is not important; the structure or system itself is important. You should inform the Continental Director and WMD [World Mission Department] if you leave your country. There are 6000 Japanese sisters that have been assigned to go to mission countries, but only 340 have gone so far. Generally, their leaders are asking them to stay until certain pressing obligations have been met. Once the sisters have fulfilled their goals they are free to go to their mission. Korean National Messiahs should not seek to press the sisters to go before they are released by their Japanese central figures. Please understand that because of True Father’s heavy demands on Japan it is very difficult for the Japanese leaders to meet all their obligations. The Japanese sisters who have already completed three years in their mission country should continue there to help the new sisters find their way. After three years they have learned the language and become useful, so True Father wants them to continue. Also the three years should be calculated as time spent in the country, not just time assigned to the country. Internally, the Japanese sisters who are posted for the WFWP represent the FFWP and True Parents. In Japan the system of financial responsibility for the blessing is somewhat changed. it is no longer the responsibility of the person giving the blessing (Spiritual Parent) to make sure that the blessed couple pays the donation; rather the couple itself is responsible. Under the old system, because the donation wasset at such a high level, it was actually a disincentive for members to give the blessing. National Messiahs should act wisely, according to the situations they find in their countries. Thus, whether they should live together in the same home, for example, depends on the situation in their country. The level or standard of the pre-blessing varies a lot from country to country. In general, do the best you can, giving as much education as possible and completing the condition as fully as possible. The basic education for blessed couples is the three speeches True Father has given recently, and which have been published as a set, and the family pledge. However, one cannot follow a strict interpretation of the rules in this age. True Father dares Satan to challenge him. He has the foundation to give the blessing in any way he sees fit.On November 29, the ceremony will be broadcast at 10 am Washington time. Other participants will have to adjust their schedules to be able to participate at the same time. However, Chung Hwan Kwak believes there will be a dispensation for the blessing to be extended for a certain period. A new satellite is being studied for use this time. Depending on the local legal and social situation, you can change the name of HSA to FFWPU in your country. Reports: CIS and China: Dr. [Joon Ho] Seuk, Continental Director for CISThe blessing has expanded rapidly recently, and several countries are interested. In China, we have nowpublished a textbook based on True Father’s teaching, which is being used widely. Since missionary movements are not allowed in China, this is a good opportunity for us to offer a system of ethics and morality for Chinese society. Russia: Mrs. [Hyun Shil] Kang, National Messiah for Russia She said that the goal seemed impossible at first, but the members really put everything on the line and worked day and night to do the blessings. After a while, the whole situation opened up and the numbers began to increase rapidly, with many miracles occurring. USA: Joong Hyun Park [Pak], Continental Director Mr. Park has reported many breakthroughs in the US regarding the pre-blessing. In particular, a number of religious groups and Christian denominations have come to embrace the blessing, and their leaders are now taking the initiative to spread the blessing to their members. Among these, is a large Baptist denomination, the church of Al Sharpton, a prominent New York activist and recent mayoral candidate there, Louis Farrakhan, leader of the Nation of Islam, and others. Even 10 Indian chiefs have been blessed.
