Luke 7

After Jesus had finished teaching the people, he went to Capernaum. In that town an army officer’s servant was sick and about to die. The officer liked this servant very much. And when he heard about Jesus, he sent some Jewish leaders to ask him to come and heal the servant.

The leaders went to Jesus and begged him to do something. They said, “This man deserves your help! He loves our nation and even built us a meeting place.” So Jesus went with them.

When Jesus wasn’t far from the house, the officer sent some friends to tell him, “Lord, don’t go to any trouble for me! I am not good enough for you to come into my house. And I am certainly not worthy to come to you. Just say the word, and my servant will get well. I have officers who give orders to me, and I have soldiers who take orders from me. I can say to one of them, ‘Go!’ and he goes. I can say to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes. I can say to my servant, ‘Do this!’ and he will do it.”

When Jesus heard this, he was so surprised that he turned and said to the crowd following him, “In all of Israel I’ve never found anyone with this much faith!”

10 The officer’s friends returned and found the servant well.

Richard: We need faith like this army officer.  We must know assuredly that God’s Will will be done as we have faith in the Will.

Proverbs 4

Keep looking straight ahead,
    without turning aside.
26 Know where you are headed,
    and you will stay
    on solid ground.
27 Don’t make a mistake by turning
    to the right or the left.

1 Chronicles 6

16 Levi’s three sons had sons of their own. 17 Gershon was the father of Libni and Shimei. 18 Kohath was the father of Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel. 19 Merari was the father of Mahli and Mushi. These descendants of Levi each became leaders of their own clans.

Proverbs 6

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

Richard:  Going into debt is not a good idea, either for an individual or a family or nation.  The total United States national debut is $20,000,000,000,000 (20 trillion dollars.)  Every child wen born now owes more that $300,000 in national debt.  This is not the way to build a prosperous future for our children.

We must know that just as we need-
ed to be healthy in the womb to be born
to lead a healthy life on earth, we need a
wholesome earthly life to have a whole-
some life in heaven. As the world today
is one of conflict under the dominion
of evil, we must we must be resolved
to fight to the death in order to be
blessed with the cooperation of heaven
and earth and to keep in step with the
dynamic fortunes of the universe. We
must resolve that our descendants will
never be placed in the same position as
we have been.” (49-308, 1971.10.17)

Proverbs 22

Teach your children
    right from wrong,
    and when they are grown
    they will still do right.
The poor are ruled by the rich,
    and those who borrow
    are slaves of moneylenders.
Troublemakers get in trouble,
    and their terrible anger
    will get them nowhere.

God’s Determination

CSG 2116

Section 6. Our Original
Hometown and the Way to Enter
the Kingdom of Heaven
6.1. Hometown is a world of the
original creation
We are at a point of time when we
cannot hope to achieve world peace or
one unified world using human power,
wisdom, culture or anything else. Under
these circumstances, what is the main
problem? I believe that answering the
question as to whether God exists or
not is the most important issue. Once
all humankind clearly understands all
about God’s existence, they will clearly
understand the direction of God’s will.
When they understand this, the world
will become one world, a world of peace
and an ideal world. (56-131, 1972.5.14)

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

Proverbs 6:3

My child, suppose you agree
to pay the debt of someone,
    who cannot repay a loan.
Then you are trapped
    by your own words,
    and you are now in the power
    of someone else.
Here is what you should do:
    Go and beg for permission

Japanese People Must Know Their Ancestors and Spirit World

Proverbs 30

These are the sayings
    and the message
    of Agur son of Jakeh.
Someone cries out to God,
    “I am completely worn out!
    How can I last?[a]
I am far too stupid
    to be considered human.
I never was wise,
    and I don’t understand
    what God is like.”

Has anyone gone up to heaven
    and come back down?
    Has anyone grabbed hold
    of the wind?
Has anyone wrapped up the sea
    or marked out boundaries
    for the earth?
If you know of any
    who have done such things,
    then tell me their names
    and their children’s names.

Everything God says is true—
    and it’s a shield for all
    who come to him for safety.
Don’t change what God has said!
    He will correct you and show
    that you are a liar.

Mark 2

Jesus went back to Capernaum, and a few days later people heard that he was at home.[a] Then so many of them came to the house that there wasn’t even standing room left in front of the door.

Jesus was still teaching when four people came up, carrying a crippled man on a mat. But because of the crowd, they could not get him to Jesus. So they made a hole in the roof[b] above him and let the man down in front of everyone.

When Jesus saw how much faith they had, he said to the crippled man, “My friend, your sins are forgiven.”

Some of the teachers of the Law of Moses were sitting there. They started wondering, “Why would he say such a thing? He must think he is God! Only God can forgive sins.”

Right away, Jesus knew what they were thinking, and he said, “Why are you thinking such things? Is it easier for me to tell this crippled man that his sins are forgiven or to tell him to get up and pick up his mat and go on home? 10 I will show you that the Son of Man has the right to forgive sins here on earth.” So Jesus said to the man, 11 “Get up! Pick up your mat and go on home.”

12 The man got right up. He picked up his mat and went out while everyone watched in amazement. They praised God and said, “We have never seen anything like this!”

Rev. Sun Myung Moon-HDK-8/2/04

Kodiak AK  9 pm

All True World Group Members must attend this HDK.  The Japanese Emperor’s spiritual message, I must deliver tonight here, especially 138 generation kings, their message, do you know that one.  If you know that  raise your hand?  You Japanese should published the SW message book and spread it out to every corner of Japan.  That way they will understand the ancestors, this is preparation to go the way the world should go.  Even though you are busy this HDK is very important.  You somehow connect with the spirit world message and connect with your ancestors. Whatever you do, fishing or any athletic activity or hunting, tomorrow you can do, but tonight we  are doing this HDK, especially Japanese members, Mr. Sun Gam Pak, all Japanese True World Group members should gather tonight here, and read the special message from the Japanese Kings.  Ah mo so Kami, he is a man or a woman?  If he is a woman, Ah mo so Kami should receive Blessing or not?  Ah mo so Kami is a human being or ghost or man and woman,  we are going to decide who is this.  We should know this fundamental issue, because this is the root of Japan;  we must know the root of how this was founded in Japan, and if you know that way/ideas you can receive help from the ancestors from Japan.  This is a very important issue.

You should know your emperor in Japan, you should know the ancestors.  You should be clear as to the direction where you will go in the future.  If we don’t know these ideas, we Japanese do not know where to go.  This is not using force.  We should acknowledge and recognize these whole content ideas.  Please start:……

[HDK read in Korean, and then translated into Japanese;  Father comments:]

It is so complicated, … that’s why we need one language.

Father wondered where is the first part

Father is really confused.  Three different languages, which one is which one.  (arranging translators)

American members should understand the difficulty in the Japanese spirit world. …Divine Principle is like a compass to guide all people.  Japan doesn’t know God is the Parent of Humankind.

In the Japanese spirit world there is darkness.  There is a small hot place with an incense smell; something is wrong there. People are eating worms in a dark corner.  Even if you have a big earthly position, you need to know God.  Follow Rev. Moon to find the new Truth.  ….All Japanese leaders must be lecturers.

The Japans spirit world reality is such a terrible reality.  You do not know what is truly the reality.  If you do not follow the Principle Ideas, you ancestors will take you away to spirit world, otherwise the future of Japan will have such a darkness.  Father knows all these ideas how to deal with, how to bring Japan to a better place, that is what Father is thinking now.

Kabaru(?) is the name of a Korean, also Kabura means no value.  When you think about the Meiji, there is no blood relationship.  It’s like the people fighting each other, but still the women have  Nothing to do with the heavenly lineage.   It is so confused.

It’s a Meji? Issue.  Matsushida, means under the pine tree, tanaka, Kawada, those names didn’t exist before the (meji issue).  Religion, Buddhism, Christianity, their laws came from Italy, Japan imitated the legal system from Italy.  Japan imported all of the political system from Europe,  and the German military, the Italian laws,  after 1000 years, it never changed.

Around the nation of Japan, .. great continent there is the bush spirit, the sword fighter spirit.  They are against the enemy, and they invade Kodota, which is Korea.(part of Korea)  Japanese island called Korea , Kodota-nai, that means ‘no value’, In Chinese tradition culture, ..is established by Koreans.  There is no sense that Korea belongs to Japan.

The island of Okinawa has been against Japan for a thousand years.  .  It’s a culture that comes from Korean culture.  That’s nonsense that Japan thinks they are ancestors. It’s not.  Japanese came from Korea.  All the criminals ran away from Korea and crossed the Japanese Ocean and went to Japan.  They rose against (those runaways) to get revenge against Korea.  The runaways are very miserable people.

When Japan the island nation had a hard time, they tried to invade Korea, using a battle ship, and tried to invade the southern part of Korea many times. How can God ask me to love Japan? When I think of past history there are 18,000 religions recorded in the Japanese education department.  Island nation.  Reviewing Japanese history, didn’t they think that they are number one under heaven?  In this world there is so much  information, so it has become clear what Japan did in Korea.  Through a computer website, you cannot hide anymore.  All the truth is revealed.

False transmission of information cannot reveal the truth.  You need to explain the true fact.  The world has to become the peaceful world.  Japan doesn’t know how to get out from this mess.  China, Russia, 360 million people. Middle East religion.  Soviet, India has Hinduism.  How can we absorb this religion.  We cannot embrace by Japanese Military or money.  How can you overcome.

Think of Genghis Khan, tried to invade the world, but he failed to invade Korea, he ran away from Korea.

You don’t read this kind of history. For 40 years Japan was under Korean occupation  Young people who are guided by Rev Moon  have to pay off the debt.  Unification Church women have to stand in the forefront and persevere.  Do you understand Japanese women?  Amito seri, Japanese God is a female God.

….  Father ordered Japanese women to Come to America.  Father is finding the way for Japan through Japanese women.

(General Macarthur) had a headquarters in Tokyo.  To be able to restore the Japanese after the Second World War.  There were ashes in Tokyo.  In 20 years Japan rebuilt again.  It is not because Japan is great, but because Father chose Japan as an Eve nation.

Japanese economic prosperity is not for Japan.

Baltic fleet defeated the Russian fleet.  They thought they can take over the world.  But God has a Providence for Japan as an Eve nation.

Enemies Can Help Us Find God’s Path

Exodus 27

Place three bronze posts on each side of the entrance at the east and hang a curtain seven and a half yards wide on each set of posts. 16 Use four more of these posts for the entrance way, then hang on them an embroidered curtain of fine linen ten yards long and woven with blue, purple, and red wool.

    will disappear bit by bit;

Providential Numbers Must be Restored

Luke 13

1Now there were some present at that time who told Jesus about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mixed with their sacrifices. 2Jesus answered, “Do you think that these Galileans were worse sinners than all the other Galileans because they suffered this way? 3I tell you, no! But unless you repent, you too will all perish. Continue reading “Providential Numbers Must be Restored”

How Much Are You Concerned With the Sorrowful Situation of Jesus?

Proverbs 15

18A hot-tempered person stirs up conflict,

but the one who is patient calms a quarrel.

1 Kings 7

48Solomon also made all the furnishings that were in the Lord’s temple:

the golden altar;

the golden table on which was the bread of the Presence;

49the lampstands of pure gold (five on the right and five on the left, in front of the inner sanctuary);

the gold floral work and lamps and tongs;

50the pure gold basins, wick trimmers, sprinkling bowls, dishes and censers;

and the gold sockets for the doors of the innermost room, the Most Holy Place, and also for the doors of the main hall of the temple.

51When all the work King Solomon had done for the temple of the Lord was finished, he brought in the things his father David had dedicated—the silver and gold and the furnishings—and he placed them in the treasuries of the Lord’s temple.

Richard:  We each have specific, substantial work to do for God and for Christ. Continue reading “How Much Are You Concerned With the Sorrowful Situation of Jesus?”

The Lord of the Second Advent and Us

Pastor Hyung Jin Moon explains about the real story of Thanksgiving and about the blessing of freedom and responsibility: https://vimeo.com/193273182

Leviticus 25

But in the seventh year the land is to have a year of sabbath rest, a sabbath to the Lord. Do not sow your fields or prune your vineyards.

Richard: This is very intersting. A Jewish Rabbi predicted in 1217 that the Messianic Kingdom would come by 2017: http://www.wnd.com/2012/11/12th-century-rabbi-predicted-israels-future/
Also recall that Rev. Moon used the term “Jubilee Year” to refer to 2007.  Perhaps there has been a delay and this will occur in 2017.  Rev. Moon also said that there should be a celebration of family on the 17th of each month, so we see the number 17 coming into play in several ways.
Also It is important to take a Sabbath day and spend time with Father.
