Genesis 45

Since Joseph could no longer control his feelings in front of his servants, he sent them out of the room. When he was alone with his brothers, he told them, “I am Joseph.” Then he cried so loudly that the Egyptians heard him and told about it in the king’s palace.

Psalm 28

Don’t drag me away, Lord,
    with those cruel people,
    who speak kind words,
    while planning trouble.
Treat them as they deserve!
    Punish them for their sins.
They don’t pay any attention
    to your wonderful deeds.
    Now you will destroy them
    and leave them in ruin.

I praise you, Lord,
    for answering my prayers.
    You are my strong shield,
    and I trust you completely.
You have helped me,
    and I will celebrate
    and thank you in song.

Richard: Praise God!

Uniting Heaven and Earth

Human beings are composed of both spirit and body; hence we stand astride both the earthly world and the spirit world. With this unique endowment, we can be the mediators between the two worlds. instead of regarding the spirit world with fear, we have the power to exercise dominion over both worlds. saints and sages have been known to command the heavenly hosts to assist them in a righteous cause. even ordinary believers have this ability, by virtue of a human being’s status as lord of creation and God’s “vicegerent.”
    Native peoples have long understood this. through ceremony and dance they realize a living relation-ship with both worlds. through intense spiritual disciplines, Hindu yogis and ascetics of all traditions obtain the power to fly with the spirits and do miraculous feats. Christianity acknowledges dominion over heaven and earth in Jesus Christ, whose victory over death is the ground of salvation. Father Moon teaches that the Kingdom of God will be established through a grand unification of the spiritual and the physical dimensions of existence.

For he has made known to us in all wisdom and
insight the mystery of his will, according to his
purpose which he set forth in Christ as a plan for
the fullness of time, to unite all things in him,
things in heaven and things on earth.
    Ephesians 1.9-10

His movement is of Heaven, his stillness of
Earth. With his single mind in repose, he is
king of the world; the spirits do not afflict him;
his soul knows no weariness. His single mind
reposed, the ten thousand things submit—which
is to say that his emptiness and stillness reach
throughout Heaven and Earth and penetrate
he ten thousand things. This is what is called
Heavenly joy. Heavenly joy is the mind of the
sage by which he shepherds the world.
    Chuang Tzu 13 (Taoism)

The Sky blesses me, the Earth blesses me;
Up in the Skies I cause to dance the Spirits;
On the Earth, the people I cause to dance.
    Cree Round Dance (Native American Religions)

Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done,
On earth as it is in heaven.
    Matthew 6.10

The ascetic bears fire, he bears water,
the ascetic upholds earth and heaven,
the ascetic sees all visions of luster,
the ascetic is called the Light.

Munis [yogis] with the wind for their girdle
wear the soiled yellow robe;
they go along the course of the wind
where the gods have gone before.

“In the ecstasy of Munihood
we have ascended on the wind,
and only these bodies of ours
are what you mortals ever see.”

The Muni flies through mid-air
while he looks at varied forms,
and he is of every deva
a comrade in doing good.
    Rig Veda 10.136.1-4 (Hinduism)

Heaven possesses yin and yang and man also
possesses yin and yang. When the universe’s
material force of yin arises, man’s material force
of yin arises in response. Conversely, when man’s
material force of yin arises, that in the universe
should also arise in response. The principle is
the same. He who understands this, when he
wishes to bring forth rain, will activate the yin in
man in order to arouse the yin in the universe.
When he wishes to stop rain, he will activate
the yang in man in order to arouse the yang of
the universe. Therefore the bringing forth of
rain is nothing supernatural. People suspect that
it is supernatural because its principle is subtle
and wonderful.
    It is not only the material forces of yin and
yang that can advance or withdraw according to
their kind. Even the way misfortunes, calamities
and blessings are produced follows the same
principle. In all cases one starts something
himself and other things become active in
response according to their kind. Therefore men
of intelligence, sageliness and spirit introspect
and listen to themselves, and their words
become intelligent and sagely. The reason why
introspection and listening to oneself alone can
lead to intelligence and sageliness is because
one knows that one’s original mind lies there.
    Therefore when the note of F is struck on a
seven-stringed or twenty-one stringed lute, the
F note on other lutes sound of themselves in
response. This is a case of things being activated
because they are similar in kind. Their activity
takes place in sound and is invisible. Not seeing
the form of their activity, people say that they
sound of themselves. Furthermore, since they
activate each other invisibly, it is thought
that they do so themselves. In reality, it is not
that they do so themselves, but that there is
something that causes them. In reality things
are caused, but the cause is invisible.
    Tung Chung-shu, Luxuriant Gems of the
    Spring and Autumn Annals (Confucianism)

Only those who are absolutely sincere can fully
develop their nature. If they can fully develop
their nature, they can then fully develop the
nature of others. If they can fully develop the
nature of others, they can then fully develop the
nature of things. If they can fully develop the
nature of things, they can then assist in the trans-
forming and nourishing process of Heaven and
Earth. If they can assist in the transforming and
nourishing process of Heaven and Earth, they
can thus form with Heaven and Earth a trinity.
Doctrine of the Mean 22 (Confucianism)

tick to the One and the ten thousand tasks will
be accomplished; achieve mindlessness and the
gods and spirits will all bow down.
Chuang Tzu 12 (Taoism)

Since therefore the children share in flesh and
blood, he himself likewise partook of the same
nature, that through death he might destroy
him who has the power of death, that is, the
devil, and deliver all those who through fear of
death were subject to lifelong bondage.
Hebrews 2.14-15

World Scripture and the Teachings of
Sun Myung Moon

Chapter 2

Truth and Universal Law

Eternal Truth

The eternal word, truth, or divine wisdom pre-existed the creation of the universe. The Word is all-pervasive; it guided the creation of the universe and continues to function in the principles of nature. It operates through physical, moral and spiritual laws. For some, truth is to be grasped by reason. For others, its essence is the Word, which is manifested completely only in Christ, the perfect man. The Word gives the universe its purpose. This touches the mystery of why God created the universe. As the Absolute Being, omnipotent and omnipresent, what did God gain by creating something apart from Him? The texts in the last group suggest that the primary theme was love. Love, which arises only in relationship, is imprinted in the cosmos by the pervasive duality of plus and minus, male and female. God, too, to experience the joy of love, would create objects apart from Himself with which to have a relationship. Here lies the purpose of creation, the root Idea in the mind of God that lies behind the blueprint of creation.

1. In the Beginning Was the Word

He has created the heavens and the earth with
truth.
Qur’an 16.3

When Heaven creates a thing, it gives each
thing a principle of truth.
Chu Hsi (Confucianism)

The sun and the moon are made punctual, the
stars and the trees adore, and the sky He hath
uplifted; and He hath set the measure.
Qur’an 55.5-7

The l ord by wisdom founded the earth;
by understanding he established the heavens;
by his knowledge the deeps broke forth,
and the clouds drop down the dew.
Proverbs 3.19-20

By Truth is the earth sustained,
and by the sun are the heavens;

By Order the gods stand
and Soma is set in the sky.
Rig Veda 10.85.1 (Hinduism)

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word
was with God, and the Word was God. 1 He
was in the beginning with God; all things were
made through him, and without him was not
anything made that was made. In him was life,
and the life was the light of men. The light
shines in the darkness, and the darkness has
not overcome it.
John 1.1-5

This, [in the beginning] was the only Lord of the
universe. His Word was with Him. This Word
was His second. He contemplated. He said, “I
will deliver this Word so that she will produce
and bring into being all this world.”
Tandya Maha Brahmana 20.14.2 (Hinduism)

He [Christ] is the image of the invisible God,
the first-born of all creation; for in him all things
were created, in heaven and on earth, visible
and invisible, whether thrones or dominions
or principalities or authorities—all things were
created through him and for him. He is before
all things, and in him all things hold together.
Colossians 1.15-17

The l ord created me at the beginning of his
work,
the first of his acts of old.
Ages ago I was set up,
at the first, before the beginning of the earth…
When he marked out the foundations of the
earth,
then I was beside him, like a little child; 2
I was daily his delight,
rejoicing before him always;
rejoicing in his inhabited world,
and delighting in the sons of men.
Proverbs 8.22-31

In human practice, when a mortal king builds
a palace, he builds it not with his own skill but
with the skill of an architect. The architect
moreover does not build it out of his head, but
employs plans and diagrams to know how to
arrange the chambers and the doors. Thus God
consulted the Torah and created the world.
Genesis Rabbah 1.1 (Judaism)

The Tao has its reality and its signs but is with-

out action or form. You can hand it down but
you cannot receive it; you can get it but you
cannot see it. It is its own source, its own root.
Before heaven and earth existed it was there,
firm from ancient times. It gave spirituality to
the spirits and to God; it gave birth to heaven
and to earth. It exists beyond the highest point,
and yet you cannot call it lofty; it exists beneath
the limit of the six directions, and yet you can-
not call it deep. It was born before heaven and
earth, and yet you cannot say it has been there
for long; it is earlier than the earliest time, and
yet you cannot call it old.
Chuang Tzu 6 (Taoism)

12 All of you, including my brother Benjamin, can tell by what I have said that I really am Joseph. 13 Tell my father about my great power here in Egypt and about everything you have seen. Hurry and bring him here.

Psalm 78

God made a path in the sea
    and piled up the water
    as he led them across.
14 He guided them during the day
    with a cloud,
    and each night he led them
    with a flaming fire.
15 God made water flow
from rocks
he split open
    in the desert,
    and his people drank freely,
    as though from a lake.
16 He made streams gush out
    like rivers from rocks.

7.2 THE PROGRESS OF HISTORY IN THE AGE OF THE PROLONGATION OF THE PROVIDENCE OF RESTORATION

7.2.1 THE PROVIDENCE OF RESTORATION AND THE HISTORY OF THE WEST

The original providential role of the Roman Empire, which had unified the ancient world around the Mediterranean Sea, was to lay the foundation for Christ’s kingdom on earth. Had the Jewish people believed in Jesus as the Messiah and united with him, the Roman Empire would have been won over by Jesus during his lifetime. Jesus would have been honored throughout the empire as the King of Kings. He would have established a worldwide dominion with Jerusalem as its capital. However, because the Jewish people disbelieved, Judea was destroyed and the Roman Empire was fated to decline. After a century of barbarian invasions, the Western Roman Empire came to an end in 476 A.D. In this manner, the center of God’s providence of restoration shifted from Judea, the land of God’s bitter grief, to Western Europe, formerly the territory of the Western Roman Empire now occupied by the Germanic tribes. Accordingly, the spiritual providence of restoration based on Christianity has been conducted primarily in Western Europe. Only in Western Europe has the history of this era progressed strictly according to the pattern set by the providence of restoration.

7.2.2 THE MUTUAL RELATIONS BETWEEN RELIGIOUS HISTORY, ECONOMIC HISTORY AND POLITICAL HISTORY

Although religion and economy, like religion and science, seem to develop at variance with each other, they are related in the life of society. Thus, there has been some mutual influence between the history of Christianity and economic history. Religion and economy are integrated with our life in society through politics.

7.2.3 CLAN SOCIETY

With the crucifixion of Jesus, the Jewish nation had fallen to Satan’s side and God could not continue with His providence of restoration in that society under such circumstances. Consequently, God broke up that society, calling devout believers out of it to establish a Christian clan society.

Despite severe persecution, Christian clan society gradually prospered in the Roman Empire around the Mediterranean Sea and developed into a Christian tribal society. Battered by the mass migrations of peoples which began in the latter half of the fourth century, the Western Roman Empire fell by 476 A.D. Christian society expanded greatly as Christianity was brought to the Germanic peoples who migrated into this territory.

7.2.4 FEUDALISTIC SOCIETY

 With the progress of history, clan society developed into feudalistic society. A feudalistic society was born in Europe when, around the fall of the Roman Empire, imperial authority waned and the empire sank into chaos.

Out of the ashes of the Western Roman Empire, God raised a feudalistic society among the newly-Christianized Germanic peoples whom He had chosen to lead the providence. By strengthening small units under godly sovereignty in the spheres of religious, political and economic life, God laid the groundwork to establish a godly kingdom.

Genesis 38

15 When Judah came along, he did not recognize her because of the veil. He thought she was a prostitute 16 and asked her to sleep with him. She asked, “What will you give me if I do?”

17 “One of my young goats,” he answered.

“What will you give me to keep until you send the goat?” she asked.

18 “What do you want?” he asked in return.

“The ring on that cord around your neck,” was her reply. “I also want the special walking stick[c] you have with you.” He gave them to her, they slept together, and she became pregnant.

19 After returning home, Tamar took off the veil and dressed in her widow’s clothes again.

20 Judah had his friend Hirah take a goat to the woman, so he could get back the ring and walking stick, but she wasn’t there. 21 Hirah asked the people of Enaim, “Where is the prostitute who sat along the road outside your town?”

“There’s never been one here,” they answered.

22 Hirah went back and told Judah, “I couldn’t find the woman, and the people of Enaim said no prostitute had ever been there.”

23 “If you couldn’t find her, we’ll just let her keep the things I gave her,” Judah answered. “And we’d better forget about the goat, or else we’ll look like fools.”

24 About three months later someone told Judah, “Your daughter-in-law Tamar has behaved like a prostitute, and now she’s pregnant!”

“Drag her out of town and burn her to death!” Judah shouted.

25 As Tamar was being dragged off, she sent someone to tell her father-in-law, “The man who gave me this ring, this cord, and this walking stick is the one who got me pregnant.”

26 “Those are mine!” Judah admitted. “She’s a better person than I am, because I broke my promise to let her marry my son Shelah.” After this, Judah never slept with her again.

Richard: Tamar risked her life to fulfill God’s will. As Jesus said (Mt. 10:39) ”
39 If you try to save your life, you will lose it. But if you give it up for me, you will surely find it. “

Matthew 10

16 I am sending you like lambs into a pack of wolves. So be as wise as snakes and as innocent as doves. 17 Watch out for people who will take you to court and have you beaten in their meeting places. 18 Because of me, you will be dragged before rulers and kings to tell them and the Gentiles about your faith. 19 But when someone arrests you, don’t worry about what you will say or how you will say it. At that time you will be given the words to say. 20 But you will not really be the one speaking. The Spirit from your Father will tell you what to say.

The True Sons and Daughters of Heavenly Father Who Will Remain in the Last Days

Rev Sun Myung Moon
July 26, 1959

Romans 8: 12-27

What do we mean when we say that we have not understood Jesus accurately nor served him properly? Ever since Adam and Eve fell in the Garden of Eden and could not grow up inside God’s bosom, Jesus was able to appear before Israel only after four thousand years of fierce battle with Satan. Yet the Jews did not understand this. If the Jews of that time had submitted themselves to Jesus, the failures of Moses during the Exodus, the failures of Noah’s family, the failures of Abraham’s family, and the murder of Abel could have been all corrected as victories. Jesus embodies such tremendous value. He was the living incarnation of history. He was the living incarnation whom God had been seeking throughout the four thousand years of His providence. Although Adam died, since the heart of the Father who had been raising him up did not die, that was the living incarnation.

In the last days, many people will come forward with the teaching that they are the center of the universe. However, what is the purpose of the providence of God who has been working through the six thousand years? It is recovering what was lost. What kind of man is Jesus, who was sent due to Adam’s mistake? He is the second Adam. Christians claim that Jesus is God Himself, but they are mistaken. It is written in the Bible that Jesus is the last Adam.

The true son whom God is seeking now is the third Adam. Before the third Adam can stand in the position of the true son, it does no good to claim to be a bride or an adopted son. Although Jesus came with the glory of a son, he could not play the role of a son. In order to act as one, all the necessary preparations must be completed in Heaven. Then it is not enough to have just a son. The preparations can be complete only when there is a bride.

What was lost in the Garden of Eden? Adam and Eve were lost. Adam and Eve were to become the true ancestors of humanity. However, because the true ancestors of humanity were lost, the true ancestors must be restored.

Jesus is in the position of a father. He is like the father of humanity. The Holy Spirit is a mother spirit, the mother of humanity. The purpose of the Second Advent is to manifest substantially on the earth the true mother and true father.

The Last Days are when true sons and daughters appear before humanity. What kind of time is that? Since we have become the descendants of the Fall and have lost the lineal relationship with true parents when we lost the true ancestors, the Last Days are the time when the reverse path is taken and the sons and daughters lost in the Garden of Eden are to be recovered. God’s work is to forge relationships with a reversal process, the work of restoration, to elevate people to the position of adopted children. If you think that what I am saying is wrong, then go to the spirit world and protest. If you were to ask, “So and so said this, but is this true?” then they would reassure you that it is true.

The time of fantastic and illusory notions of faith has passed. The time of believing in a conceptual God and living under such concepts is also behind us. You should attain a certain standard where your flesh, bones and heart come together in oneness so that you can call God your father and be able to boast of the father-son relationship after connecting your heart to the heart of the Father, who has been exerting Himself for six thousand years.

Humanity, which is seeking Heaven and the world of purpose, should walk this path. For this reason in the East they have advocated Confucian ethics: give all of your heart and soul for Heaven, exert yourself for the sake of your parents, become a patriot, and uphold chastity in order to build heavenly relationships in your immediate environment. In the East, people upheld internal trends of thought, while the West is more external. It will come around to the external sphere. You wait and see.

The time of the success of the adopted children is the twentieth century up till now. The ideal world which will come is the time that the true sons and daughters will become successful. Wouldn’t that be natural if God existed? The past was a time when the children of others prospered; now is the time when adopted children based in the democratic sphere centering on Christianity prosper. The time after this period is when true sons and daughters live in prosperity. That is the time of the Second Coming and the time of the ideal that Christians are waiting for.

What should we do to become true sons and daughters who can rise to such positions, whom God will seek? You should not boast about how you have been a devout believer for so many years. All those who seek happiness based on the name of Jesus, saying, “I am a minister of this church; I am a leader of that church; through my efforts so many people have come to know Jesus and follow him,” are not worthy. Why? It is because during the six thousand years of the providence, God has never had one day or one moment when He was truly happy. How can a father who is so desperately seeking for true sons and daughters be happy when He has not yet found them?

In the course of history there have been a lot of people who enjoyed themselves. There have been people with power and authority who have received glory in place of God. Yet God, who has been struggling for four thousand and six thousand years, searching for His sons and daughters, never had such moments of happiness. God, who should enjoy glory and happiness, has never had such a time.

You Should Live According to Your Conscience

Genesis 9

God said to Noah and his sons:

I am giving you my blessing. Have a lot of children and grandchildren, so people will live everywhere on this earth. All animals, birds, reptiles, and fish will be afraid of you. I have placed them under your control, and I have given them to you for food. From now on, you may eat them, as well as the green plants that you have always eaten. But life is in the blood, and you must not eat any meat that still has blood in it. 5-6 I created humans to be like me, and I will punish any animal or person that takes a human life. If an animal kills someone, that animal must die. And if a person takes the life of another, that person must be put to death.

I want you and your descendants to have many children, so people will live everywhere on earth.

2 Chronicles 36

During Jehoiakim’s rule, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylonia invaded Judah. He arrested Jehoiakim and put him in chains, and he sent him to the capital city of Babylon. Nebuchadnezzar also carried off many of the valuable things in the Lord’s temple, and he put them in his palace in Babylon.

Everything else Jehoiakim did while he was king, including all the disgusting and evil things, is written in The History of the Kings of Israel and Judah. His son Jehoiachin then became king.


Let Us Fathom the Heart of Heaven
Rev. Sun Myung Moon
September 13, 1959

Matthew 10:24-39



There may be some people among you who are proud of themselves, but you should reflect upon yourselves and criticize yourselves objectively. Those who are proud will be defeated. Because this world is evil, those who are proud of themselves will meet such a fate. You should live according to your conscience. Those who try to lead their lives according to their consciences will rise up one day, after the era of evil people’s influence passes. Although this is a little-known fact, there will be living historical proof of this. The moment such an event takes place in Heaven and earth on the world scale, evil will recede and goodness will come.

Heaven sought us out. We human beings have been seeking for God for the last six thousand years. We thought that the desires God established were the true desires, that the salvation Jesus gave us was a complete salvation, and that the love that Jesus demonstrated was the love which could connect us to the true heart.

Even then we were not able to say from the moment we began believing in Jesus, “Desires of the world, be gone from me; situations of the world, be gone from me; the heart of the world, be gone from me.” We have not been able to transcend that limitation. Jesus was to bring a revolution to this sinful world. He should have built a world of new desires, new situations and a new heart. This was Jesus’ mission.
