First we need structure, then unity,
and lastly we need action. These are the
three elements needed to move the world
centering on Korea. By standing with-
in a thoroughly organized realm, you
must connect 100 percent to all direc-
tions. Furthermore, you should estab-
lish this standard, leading the way, in
order to fulfill you central mission. You
must determine your position within
the organized realm. If you don’t have
a position, then there is nowhere for you
to sit down. You can push ahead only
after your position has been decided.
You will be able to see how your posi-
tion is developing based on your effort.
Deciding the position is an important
part of strengthening the power of the
organization. (15-191, 1965.10.9)

Jeremiah 24

Then the Lord told me to say:

People of Judah, the good figs stand for those of you I sent away as exiles to Babylonia, where I am watching over them. Then someday I will bring them back to this land. I will plant them, instead of uprooting them, and I will build them up, rather than tearing them down. I will give them a desire to know me and to be my people. They will want me to be their God, and they will turn back to me with all their heart.

Let Us Understand the Heart of the Resurrected Jesus

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
April 17, 1958

You who have gathered here! Have you become such that your every cell can reach harmony with God? Only when your mind and your very cells can become one with God will God come seeking you, as Jesus searched for the apostles after the resurrection. These apostles must gather to search for the humanity of the world. Up to now, apostles have made heroic determinations based on the conviction that Jesus came to die. Therefore, you who understand that Jesus did not come to die must make an even more heroic determination. Continue reading “Be Jesus’ Brother”

Revelation 5

11 As I looked, I heard the voices of a lot of angels around the throne and the voices of the living creatures and of the elders. There were millions and millions of them, 12 and they were saying in a loud voice,

“The Lamb who was killed
    is worthy to receive power,
riches, wisdom, strength,
    honor, glory, and praise.”

Jeremiah

13 I am the Lord God of Israel, and I made an agreement with your ancestors when I brought them out of Egypt, where they had been slaves. 14 As part of this agreement, you must let a Hebrew slave go free after six years of service.

Your ancestors did not obey me, 15-16 but you decided to obey me and do the right thing by setting your Hebrew slaves completely free. You even went to my temple, and in my name you made an agreement to set them free. But you have abused my name, because you broke your agreement and forced your former slaves back into slavery.

17 You have disobeyed me by not giving your slaves their freedom. So I will give you freedom—the freedom to die in battle or from disease or hunger. I will make you disgusting to all other nations on earth.

Let Us Become Someone Who Can Hold Jesus’ Body and Mourn

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
April 13, 1958

Therefore, we must not see Jesus as the figure of a bygone era. We must seek and attend him as Jesus of the present reality. When Jesus was going around to different villages and being persecuted, he found enemies everywhere he went. His path became more perilous and rough. Among the people God had been grooming for 4,000 years, Jesus could not find even one friend who welcomed him gladly. You have to feel this situation of Jesus in the present.

Although many sects, countless people and priests had waited for the Messiah, when he actually appeared there was no one who welcomed him. How would God have felt observing this situation? If you were living in the age of Jesus 2,000 years ago, how can you guarantee you would not become like the Pharisees and Sadducees? You have to reflect upon yourselves. If the Jesus who came in the past is the Jesus of the present and the future, then only when you can fathom and be connected to the heart of Jesus of the past can you welcome the Jesus of the present and of the future at the time of the new world.

Micah 5

Like a shepherd
    taking care of his sheep,
this ruler will lead
    and care for his people
by the power and glorious name
    of the Lord his God.
His people will live securely,
and the whole earth will know
    his true greatness,
because he will bring peace.

Jeremiah 18

These people have dug pits
    and set traps for me, Lord.
Make them scream in fear
when you send enemy troops
    to attack their homes.
23 You know they plan to kill me.
    So get angry and punish them!
Don’t ever forgive
    their terrible crimes.

The Heart of Jesus Who Must Restore All Tasks

Sun Myung Moon

Prayer

Father, we thought that Jesus came to the earth to seek each of us, but that was not the whole story. We thought that he came for our families, but that also was not the whole story. We thought that he came only for the chosen Israel, but that also was not the full picture. He did not come only for a certain sect. Continue reading “Live an Historical Life”

John 6

24 They saw that Jesus and his disciples had left. Then they got into the boats and went to Capernaum to look for Jesus. 25 They found him on the west side of the lake and asked, “Rabbi, when did you get here?”

26 Jesus answered, “I tell you for certain that you are not looking for me because you saw the miracles,[g] but because you ate all the food you wanted. 27 Don’t work for food that spoils. Work for food that gives eternal life. The Son of Man will give you this food, because God the Father has given him the right to do so.”

Jeremiah 32

Jeremiah, your cousin Hanamel, the son of your uncle Shallum, will visit you. He must sell his field near the town of Anathoth, and because you are his nearest relative, you have the right and the responsibility to buy it and keep it in the family.[c]

Richard:  We should pass our assets along to our child who is ready to keep God’s will and tradition, not just evenly to all children.  Some of your children may squander your assets and then your dynasty will die out after three generations or so.  This is the advice that Pastor Hyung Jin Moon gave us.

In the future we will have to be reg-
istered. When the North and South are
united, the families of the Unification
Church around the world, those Blessed
Families who have been active, will all
go beyond the tribal level and become
registered. If the North and South are
united through my power, heavenly law
will establish the loyal officials of the
Unification Church around the world as
the representative people and the peo-
ple who provide the seed. Who would
oppose this? Historically speaking, who
would oppose me, when I have worked
as hard as I have for the sake of the inde-
pendence of Korea and the return to
hometown in Korea? (197-212, 1990.1.14)

Jeremiah 35

12-13 Then the Lord told me to say to the people of Judah and Jerusalem:

I, the Lord All-Powerful, the God of Israel, want you to learn a lesson 14 from the Rechabite clan. Their ancestor Jonadab told his descendants never to drink wine, and to this very day they have obeyed him. But I have spoken to you over and over, and you haven’t obeyed me! 15 You refused to listen to my prophets, who kept telling you, “Stop doing evil and worshiping other gods! Start obeying the Lord, and he will let you live in this land he gave your ancestors.”

16 The Rechabites have obeyed the command of their ancestor Jonadab, but you have not obeyed me, 17 your God. I am the Lord All-Powerful, and I warned you about the terrible things that would happen to you if you did not listen to me. You have ignored me, so now disaster will strike you. I, the Lord, have spoken.

What is the pride of our Unification
Church? First is true love and second
is True Parents. These terms are found
only in the Unification Church, not in
the dictionary. Third is true children
and fourth is true tribe. These relate to
our four main goals. (203-103, 1990.6.17)

Jeremiah 5

The people have rebelled
and rejected the Lord
    too many times.
So enemies will attack
like lions from the forest
    or wolves from the desert.
Those enemies will watch
    the towns of Judah,
and like leopards
they will tear to pieces
    whoever goes outside.

Jeremiah 35

3So I went to get Jaazaniah son of Jeremiah, the son of Habazziniah, and his brothers and all his sons—the whole family of the Rekabites. 4I brought them into the house of the Lord, into the room of the sons of Hanan son of Igdaliah the man of God. It was next to the room of the officials, which was over that of Maaseiah son of Shallum the doorkeeper.

Richard:  Each of us has a unique mission to accomplish for God and Christ.  Pray, study God’s Word and seek the Kingdom and His righteousness that you may accomplish your purpose.

Jeremiah 23

11“Both prophet and priest are godless;

even in my temple I find their wickedness,”

declares the Lord.

12“Therefore their path will become slippery;

they will be banished to darkness

and there they will fall.

I will bring disaster on them

in the year they are punished,”

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.”

CSG

Hoondokhwae is the treasure chest
that I stored up under all sorts of hard-
ships and deprivations and that I have
opened up to the people. I have told
everyone not to translate it; it cannot be
translated. You should do hoondokh-
wae until I say otherwise. You must
know that. You should do hoondokh-
wae whenever time permits. You should
always keep a speech book in your pocket
and do hoondokhwae even when you are
alone, even in the bathroom, and keep a
record of the part you have read, even if
it was for a couple of hours a day.
You already know that you must read
The Way of God’s Will and the Divine
Principle, but you should also read Bless-
ing and Ideal Family and all the oth-
er major speeches because they are the
records of victory over the satanic world.
In the Unification Church, you should
become one with these sermons, which
include all past battles of the True Par-
ents up to the present. By uniting with
and following these contents, you will
become one with True Parents. These
sermons should take root in yourself,
in your family and extended family up
to seven generations, and then in 160
or 180 families horizontally, all united
together. (288-16, 1997.10.31)

Jeremiah 33

 You’ve heard foreigners insult my people by saying, “The Lord chose Israel and Judah, but now he has rejected them, and they are no longer a nation.”

25 Jeremiah, I will never break my agreement with the day and the night or let the sky and the earth stop obeying my commands. 26 In the same way, I will never reject the descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob or break my promise that they will always have a descendant of David as their king. I will be kind to my people Israel, and they will be successful again.

34 King Nebuchadnezzar[a] had a large army made up of people from every kingdom in his empire. He and his army were attacking Jerusalem and all the nearby towns, when the Lord told me to say to King Zedekiah:[b]

I am the Lord, and I am going to let Nebuchadnezzar capture this city and burn it down. You will be taken prisoner and brought to Nebuchadnezzar, and he will speak with you face to face. Then you will be led away to Babylonia.
