#89- Could Joe Biden only be President for 40 Days?
37 I have chosen these festivals as times when my people must come together for worship and when animals, grain, and wine are to be offered on the proper days. 38 These festivals must be celebrated in addition to the Sabbaths and the times when you offer special gifts or sacrifices to keep a promise or as a voluntary offering.
Richard: We should be aware of and celebrate the Holy Days that God has set up. On the Heavenly Calendar there are eight major Holy Days.
9 Ephraim also had some towns and villages that were inside Manasseh’s tribal land.
Richard: Even though we are living in a fallen world, Cheong Il Guk (the Kingdom of Heaven) has been established and must be expanded centering on Blessed families.
Sovereignty, territory and citizenry are necessary for creating a nation. You must believe that the eternal settlement of Cheon Il Guk was declared on the foundation of all its constituent parts. Have confidence as God would and when you push forward with all your strength with confidence equal to that of Rev. Moon, the True Parent, nothing will hold you back. (364-87, 2002.1.1)
CSG p 1511
Your families represent the sovereignty of God’s Kingdom. The parents stand on behalf of this sovereignty. The children stand in the stead of the citizens, and the material possessions rep-resent the land of that kingdom. Subsequently, being filial to one’s parents is the same as being loyal to one’s nation, and also leads one to fulfill one’s duties as a saint. At present, the family has become the origin of many disgraceful acts, but God hopes that the family will be transformed into sanctified ground. Therefore, the mission to save corrupted families in the fallen realm lies with us. Though families worldwide are shattering, we are not in a position to abandon them. (35-306, 1970.10.30)
2. Cleansing and Purification
On this day shall atonement be made for you, to cleanse you; from all your sins you shall be clean before the Lord.
Have mercy on me, O God,
according to thy steadfast love;
according to thy abundant mercy blot out my transgressions.
Wash me thoroughly from my iniquity,
and cleanse me from my sin!
For I know my transgressions,
and my sin is ever before me.
Against thee, thee only, have I sinned,
and done that which is evil in thy sight,
so that thou art justified in thy sentence
and blameless in thy judgment.
Behold, I was brought forth in iniquity,
and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Behold, thou desirest truth in the inward being;
therefore teach me wisdom in my secret heart.
Purge me with hyssop, and I shall be clean;
wash me, and I shall be whiter than snow.
Fill me with joy and gladness;
let the bones which thou hast broken rejoice.
Hide thy face from my sins,
and blot out all my iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and put a new and right spirit within me.
Thus hearing the litany, and that there be no blot of sin in the court or the country,
May the deities bestow their purification that no offense remain, and
As the wind blows from its origin to carry away
the clouds of heaven,
Even as the wind of morning and the wind of evening clears away the morning and
As the ship in harbor casts off its moorings stem and stern to be borne out onto the
great plain of the sea, and
As the rank grasses beyond the river are swept away with the clean stroke of the scythe—
Even so, may the deity Seoritsuhime-no-kami,
Dwelling in the swift-flowing stream that falls
from the high mountains and low hills,
Carry away these sins and pollutions without
remain, to the wide sea plain.
Our sins thus swept away, may the goddess
Who lives in the stream of the sea plain,
Open wide her great mouth to engulf those sins
and impurities, and
When they are thus imbibed,
May the god Ibukidonushi-no-kami,
Dwelling in the place where breath is breathed,
Blow them out with a great rushing breath.
And when he has thus banished them to the
May the goddess Hayasasurahime-no-kami
disperse them once and all.
Even in this way, may the sins of all in the realm,
from officials of the court on down,
every transgression within the land be washed away.
Engishiki 8 (Shinto)
Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon
Work with Thy purifying touch in the soul of each one here.
Please reveal all that is in each of our minds and bodies, Father, and sanctify everything.
Since it will not do unless all improper elements are separated out and cast away,
O Father, please personally be the Lord who purifies us
and the Lord of our hearts. (1:162, July 11, 1956)
