Jesus Stepped forward to Clear Away all Historical Debt

Proverbs 6

But they will be struck
by sudden disaster
    and left without a hope. 

16 There are six or seven
kinds of people
    the Lord doesn’t like:
17 Those who are too proud
    or tell lies or murder,
18     those who make evil plans
    or are quick to do wrong,
19 those who tell lies in court
    or stir up trouble
    in a family.

Psalm 119

Our Lord, you are eternal!
    Your word will last as long
    as the heavens.[b]
90 You remain faithful
    in every generation,
    and the earth you created
    will keep standing firm.
91 All things are your servants,
    and the laws you made
    are still in effect today.

Who Will Eliminate the Debt of 6,000 Years?
Rev. Sun Myung Moon
April 28, 1958

Today, you neither know nor realize that you must pay off the debt you are carrying. However, to let humankind clear off the debt they bear and be able to move forward in one direction, God, the Creator of humankind, has unfolded a providence throughout the long course of history. He has done this though humankind does not think of or even dream of having such a concern. If you come to understand God’s providential dispensation as such, you should examine yourself in a probing manner to determine with what attitude of mind you should express your appreciation.

CSG 77

However all-knowing and all-pow-
erful God may be, He absolutely obeys
true love. How does that sound: good
or bad? Would this true love be good
when heard from the east and bad when
heard from the west? It is good wheth-
er you hear it from the west, from the
south, or from the north, from above, or
from below. Day and night, throughout
the four seasons, and beyond the time
of our youth and old age, it will, for all
eternity, be pleasing to hear the sound of
true love. (211-75, 1990.12.29)

Proverbs 4

My child, listen closely
to my teachings
    and learn common sense.
My advice is useful,
    so don’t turn away.
When I was still very young
    and my mother’s favorite child,
    my father said to me:
“If you follow my teachings
    and keep them in mind,
    you will live.
Be wise and learn good sense;
    remember my teachings
    and do what I say.

Let Us Become the True Sons God Wants

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
April 20, 1958

Considering the question of to what extent the dominating powers of evil have reached, you have to realize that if the God of creation exists, the powers of evil have reached to just below the knees of that God. If there is a heavenly throne, Satan is trying to manifest his powers even behind that heavenly throne. Since the time in which the disaster of sin took place, God and human beings have been suffering from the agony evil causes. If there is some providential will of God toward human beings, in what direction is it moving? You have to understand that it is heading toward the one day when God can cast judgment upon evil, the one day when people themselves can judge evil.

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

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
April 13, 1958

What kind of person is God? It might seem that we have become a sacrifice, but God is the One who has become a sacrifice for us. When people live for the sake of Heaven, Heaven hands the whole ideology of the universe over to humanity. In the satanic world, when you live for others, your life will be taken away; in the end even the ideology that you have given will be taken away, and you will be dragged into eternal hell. However, if you carry on the fight while you are being accused by Satan, this will become a gain for the side of Heaven. Therefore, the group that goes to Heaven has come into being. Because Satan stands in the position where he cannot return, the more he moves forward, the sooner he will face a situation where he has to yield.

Proverbs 1

These are the proverbs
of King Solomon of Israel,
    the son of David.
Proverbs will teach you
    wisdom and self-control
    and how to understand
    sayings with deep meanings.
You will learn what is right
    and honest and fair.
From these, an ordinary person
    can learn to be smart,
    and young people can gain
    knowledge and good sense.

If you are already wise,
    you will become even wiser.
And if you are smart,
you will learn to understand
    proverbs and sayings,
as well as words of wisdom
    and all kinds of riddles.
Respect and obey the Lord!
This is the beginning
    of knowledge.[a]
    Only a fool rejects wisdom
    and good advice.

The True Shepherd and His Flock; the False Shepherd and His Flock

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
April 6, 1958

What must you become? You must become God’s flock of sheep. For the last 6,000 years, God has been calling for and looking for a flock of true sheep over whom Heaven and earth can rejoice. Moreover, He is seeking that flock of sheep today. He will seek them tomorrow too.

Where is the flock of sheep God and Jesus can rejoice over? If you want to become a true flock of sheep, you must be able to discern the voice of the true shepherd. In the same way that there are two worlds representing the internal and external ideology of God, there is an appeal for the truth which represents the internal world and an appeal for the truth which represents the external world.

Rev. 11

19 The door to God’s temple in heaven was then opened, and the sacred chest[b] could be seen inside the temple. I saw lightning and heard roars of thunder. The earth trembled and huge hailstones fell to the ground.

Proverbs 17

Crooks accept secret bribes
    to keep justice
    from being done.
24 Anyone with wisdom knows
    what makes good sense,
    but fools can never
    make up their minds.

The True Shepherd and His Flock; the False Shepherd and His Flock

Rev. Sun Myung Moon

Although there are many churches in the world, there is none which can conform completely to the will of God. If there is a heaven, then the truth will be made the center. Based on that, relationships will be built with the internal and external dimensions. Moreover, as phenomena of the end of time, there will be conflicts among the religious groups. For any religion or group, this will begin on the individual level and expand to the family, church, national and world levels, in that order. A nation also has the two dimensions of the internal and the external. The world is divided into the left and right sides. These must become one.

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.

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.
