What is the formula for re-creation? The universe is made up of plus and minus elements. If we look at the molecule it tells us as much with its positive and negative ions. Everything exists on a reciprocal basis. The atom contains protons and electrons. Everything is like that, for that is the basis upon which the universe was formed: stamen and pistil in plants, male and female in animals, and man and woman in the case of human beings. Everything functions reciprocally. As such, they must be brought into one principled order. Since God is the Subject, they must be brought under His control. Unless a unified realm of reciprocal relationships has been established within creation according to His will, there can be no joy for God through the creation. (247-183, 1993.5.9)

Those who deny God are more pitiful than people who are starving to death. The latter will be granted a certain level in the other world according to the merits of their good faith, but atheists will have no foothold because they deny the spirit world. They drift about in the spirit world like a mass of clouds. They become wandering spirits. Just as clouds gather and produce rain, they congregate and exert an evil influence. They all go to hell and inflict pain there. Although I know this all too clearly, I must save them, and this is why I am doing this work.

Ignorance and Atheism

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

Are any among you caught in the abyss of despair? You have no connection whatsoever to the ideal world. Are you in such darkness that you cannot distinguish front from back, left from right, up from down? Amidst your confused, turbulent and disorderly lives, you have forgotten the center and continue to violate Heaven’s laws and principles. As long as this is the case, you cannot make any connection with God’s ideal Garden. (2:246, June 9, 1957)

The world has become a wretched place, far from God’s presence. Yet humanity to this day lives in ignorance of this. People are deluded into believing that the lineage of the enemy is the lifeline upon which the world depends. This is the wretched truth about humanity descended from the Fall. That is why we refer to this world as hell on earth. God views humanity’s tragic situation with a heart full of pain. (September 12, 2005)

Most of the six billion people in the world are blind. Though they appear normal, they cannot see even an inch in front of themselves. But this does not keep people from acting as though they are philosophers and theologians who understand the truth of Heaven. It has been this way throughout history, and it has caused God much grief. (May 1, 2004)

With the Fall of the first human ancestors, human beings were cast into a hopeless hell from which they cannot escape by their efforts alone. They should have become true owners, true parents and true kings and queens, who communicate directly with God through their five spiritual senses and freely exercise dominion over all things through their five physical senses; thus they were to be God’s representatives to both the spirit world and the physical world. But due to the Fall their five spiritual senses became largely paralyzed. They fell into a state similar to that of a blind man whose sightless eyes appear normal to an observer. Forced to live mainly by their five physical senses, they became only half human. They could not see God, or see Him only dimly. They could barely hear His voice or feel His touch. So how could they experience His love as their own Parent or know His suffering heart? (January 27, 2004)

The greatest sorrows of humankind are:
our inability to form a relationship with Thy love,
the loss of our original conscience,
which could communicate with Thy heart,
and our inability to harmonize our minds and bodies,
which would enable us to live in accordance with our conscience and Thy heart.
Because of the Fall, the sensibility by which we could communicate with Thy heart left us, and the mind which could love all things through experiencing Thy heart is no longer with us.
(6:298-99, June 14, 1959)

They Are My People, and You Were Cruel to Them

#67: Who Can Be Trusted on Voting Integrity: President Trump or Joe Biden?

Leviticus 15

Any man with an infected penis is unclean, whether it is stopped up or keeps dripping. Anything that he rests on or sits on is also unclean, 5-7 and if you touch either these or him, you must wash your clothes and take a bath, but you still remain unclean until evening.

If you are spit on by the man, you must wash your clothes and take a bath, but you still remain unclean until evening. 9-10 Any saddle or seat on which the man sits is unclean. And if you touch or carry either of these, you must wash your clothes and take a bath, but you still remain unclean until evening. 11 If the man touches you without first washing his hands, you must wash your clothes and take a bath, but you still remain unclean until evening. 12 Any clay pot that he touches must be destroyed, and any wooden bowl that he touches must be washed.

13 Seven days after the man gets well, he will be considered clean, if he washes his clothes and takes a bath in spring water. 14 On the eighth day he must bring either two doves or two pigeons to the front of my sacred tent and give them to a priest. 15 The priest will offer one of the birds as a sacrifice for sin and the other as a sacrifice to please me, then I will consider the man completely clean.

Richard: This passage indicates the root of the problem we are now facing with our nation and the election.
    Those who allow this fraud and crime of stealing the election have deadened their conscience through killing it, effectively, by justifying how it is ok to have sexual relationships without considering the welfare of the children that are present, substantially though the sperm and egg, but also in the spirits of those engaging in the sexual act.  
    The end result of this is infanticide, where you extend the effective murder of your conscience to the actual murder of the unborn child.  
    Within this murderous culture, the conscience is deadened.  The door is opened to a culture of crime.  The crime in this particular case is the attempted stealing of the election.

Obadiah

12 Why did you celebrate
when such a dreadful disaster
    struck your relatives?
Why were you so pleased
when everyone in Judah
    was suffering?
13 They are my people,
    and you were cruel to them.
You went through their towns,
sneering
and stealing
    whatever was left.
14 In their time of torment,
    you ambushed refugees
and handed them over
    to their attackers.

15 The day is coming
when I, the Lord,
    will judge the nations.
And, Edom, you will pay in full
    for what you have done.

Richard:  Stacey got this exact same Rheama just four days ago. Obadiah is a book that is just 2 pages long. The chance of this being a coincidence is zero.
    God is very unhappy with the attempt of Joe Biden and the Democrats to steal the election. That attempt will not succeed. There will be grave consequences for those who are perpetrating this fraud. Those perpetrating this fraud are showing gross disrespect to those who have cast legitimate ballots. This is a blatant attempt to disenfranchise the hundreds of thousands of people who have cast their votes for Donald J Trump, only to have fraudulent ballots appear after the fact to cancel their votes.

Angels

1. The Identity and Mission of Angels

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

God created the angelic world prior to creating the physical universe. Then, with the help of the angels, God utilized the elements of creation to form human beings. (83:155, February 8, 1976)
Angels, like all beings, were created by God. God created them prior to any other creation. In the biblical account of the creation of heaven and earth, we find that God spoke in the plural: “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness.” (Gen. 1.26) This is not because God was referring to Himself as the Holy Trinity, as many theologians have interpreted the passage. Rather, He was speaking to the angels, whom He had created before human beings.
    God created angels to be His retainers, who would assist Him in creating and sustaining the universe. In the Bible we find many instances of angels working for the Will of God. Angels conveyed to Abraham important words of God’s blessing (Gen. 18.10); an angel heralded the conception of Christ (Matt. 1.20); an angel unchained Peter and led him out of prison and into the city. (Acts 12.7-10) The angel who escorts John in the Book of Revelation calls himself “a servant” (Rev. 22.9), and in Hebrews angels are referred to as “ministering spirits.” (Heb. 1.14) The Bible often portrays angels honoring and praising God. (Rev. 5.11-12, 7.11-12)
    Let us investigate the relationship between human beings and angels from the perspective of the Principle of Creation. Because God created us as His children and gave us dominion over all creation (Gen. 1.28), we are meant to rule over the angels as well. It is written in the Bible that we have the authority to judge the angels. (1 Cor. 6.3) Many who communicate with the spirit world have witnessed hosts of angels escorting the saints in Paradise. These observations illustrate the fact that angels have the mission to minister to human beings. (Exposition of the Divine Principle, Fall 2.2.1)
 
In front of God, the angels were supposed to fulfill the duties of servants and serve as a protective fence for Adam and Eve. They were supposed to create a glorious environment for them to live eternally in God’s Kingdom. Then they would have lived happily with Adam and Eve in God’s love. In short, God created the angels and archangels for the sake of Adam and Eve. God, in His parental love for Adam and Eve, created the angels for their sake. (15:238, October 17, 1965)
 
Good spirits who passed away after living on Earth belong to the realm of angels in terms of their mission. Why? God created angels before creating Adam. Therefore, before the perfection of [the new] Adam on earth, good people are assigned the role of angels by a certain procedure. (76:324, March 15, 1975)
 
Men are in the position of an archangel—not the archangel who caused the Fall but a restored arch-angel.28 The angels in the Garden of Eden were given the mission to protect and nurture Adam and Eve to fulfill the ideal of God’s family, and assist them to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. However, they failed to fulfill their mission, and instead they became gangsters, following the king of hell. (281:313, March 9, 1997)
 
For this reason, the angels should come down to the earth and work hard, sacrificing themselves for the citizens of the Kingdom to be established by the coming Messiah. Through shedding sweat in this way, they can be restored. The spirit world is the world of angels, and the physical world is Adam’s world. Since both worlds have fallen under the power of the Devil, angels in the spirit world and “substantial” angels in the physical world should work for their liberation. Liberation is not possible only through the activities of angels in the spirit world. We need to create a substantial world of [people fulfilling the mission of] angels. (62:247, September 25, 1972)

One cannot help liking the ocean.
We need to pioneer it. We cannot afford
to ignore the ocean: the area it cov-
ers is more than three times the size of
the land. Who do you think is going to
develop the oceanic resources that can
be found at the bottom of the ocean? We
can find oil – black gold – on land, but
the ocean is three times larger, so we can
expect to find perhaps three times more
oil from the sea.

God’s Creation and Human Creativity

Creativity and Art

3. Inspiration

Not by wisdom do poets write poetry, but by
a sort of genius and inspiration; they are like
diviners or soothsayers who also say many fine
things, but do not understand the meaning of
them.
Socrates, in Plato, Apology (Hellenism)

When in my most inspired moods, I have defi-
nite inspiring visions, involving a higher self-
hood. I feel at such moments that I am tapping
the source of infinite and eternal energy from
which you and I and all things proceed. Religion
calls it God.
Richard Strauss

I have very definite impressions while in that
trance-like condition, which is the prerequisite
of all true creative effort. I feel that I am one
with this vibrating Force, that is omniscient,
and that I can draw upon it to an extent that is
limited only by my own capacity to do so.
Richard Wagner

The most beautiful experience one can have is
the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion
that stands at the cradle of art and science.
Albert Einstein

The Lord has called by name Bezalel the son
of Uri, son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah; and he
has filled him with the Spirit of God, with abil-
ity, with intelligence, with knowledge, and with
all craftsmanship, to devise artistic designs, to
work in gold and silver and bronze, in cutting
stones for setting, and in carving wood, for work
in every skilled craft.
Exodus 35.30-33

Woodworker Ch’ing carved a piece of wood and
made a bell stand, and when it was finished, every-
one who saw it marveled, for it seemed to be the
work of gods or spirits. When the Marquis of Lu
saw it, he asked, “What art is it you have?” Ch’ing
replied, “I am only a craftsman—how would I have
any art? There is one thing, however. When I am
going to make a bell stand, I never let it wear out
my energy. I always fast in order to still my mind.
When I have fasted for three days, I no longer
have any thought of congratulations or rewards,
of titles or stipends. When I have fasted for five
days, I no longer have any thought of praise or
blame, of skill or clumsiness. And when I have
fasted seven days, I am so still that I forget I have
four limbs and a form and body. By that time, the
ruler and his court no longer exist for me. My skill
is concentrated and all outside distractions fade
away. After that, I go into the mountain forest
and examine the Heavenly nature of the trees. If
I find one of superlative form, and I can see a bell
stand there, I put my hand to the job of carving;
if not, I let it go. This way I am simply matching
up ‘Heaven’ with ‘Heaven.’ That’s probably the
reason that people wonder if the results were not
made by spirits.”
Chuang Tzu

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

When your mind and body become united and you reach the point where you open the gate of love, your mind will resonate with the universe. Then you can become a writer or a poet. In that state, you open to relate to everything in all its dimensions. Then, even watching a fallen leaf tossed by the wind will bring you to laughter. (137:232, January 3, 1986)

World-famous scientists usually have deeply sensitive minds, by which they harmonize with the heart of nature. With that sensitivity they unexpectedly receive intuitions, inspirations and dreams. These phenomena occur especially when they are completely absorbed in their research. (6:341-42, June 28, 1959)

Before you write anything, first make a spiritual condition to enter a mystical state; then you can produce beautiful writing. When painting, do not just work alone in your room. Instead, make a spiritual condition and ask a great painter’s spirit to come and help you; then your work will gener-ate great admiration from people. Great scientists and artists inevitably have a spiritual connection; it exists because they made spiritual efforts. (100:123, October 9, 1978)

An artist should have a clear mind and spirit. Then with clear conscience he should invest every-thing. (77:319, April 30, 1975

God Totally Invested Himself in the Work of Creation

In 2020 in West Virginia we elect the Governor, one US Senator, the Commissioner of Agriculture and three of five Supreme Court of Appeals Justices. We will also elect School Board members, delegates, state senators, sheriffs and more. Especially in light of the many intrusions on constitutional rights now taking place, it will be important to choose wisely on June 9th, 2020 in the primary election and in November. Remember that the Supreme Court of Appeals, School Board members and Magistrates are chosen in the June election only. View the candidate interviews so that you can make informed choices.

Matthew 12

18 “Here is my chosen servant!
I love him,
    and he pleases me.
I will give him my Spirit,
and he will bring justice
    to the nations.
19 He won’t shout or yell
    or call out in the streets.
20 He won’t break off a bent reed
    or put out a dying flame,
but he will make sure
    that justice is done.
21 All nations will place
    their hope in him.”

Ezra 9

But for now, Lord God, you have shown great kindness to us. You made us truly happy by letting some of us settle in this sacred place and by helping us in our time of slavery. We are slaves, but you have never turned your back on us. You love us, and because of you, the kings of Persia have helped us. It’s as though you have given us new life! You let us rebuild your temple and live safely in Judah and Jerusalem.

God and Creation

Chapter 1
God

The Creator

1. In the Beginning

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

Christians today believe that the omnipotent God created by speaking words, saying “Let there be…” and the creation appeared as if it were a magic show. On the contrary, God totally invested His entire self into the work of creation. He invested, expressing His total love. Don’t we give our utmost sincerity and invest our flesh and blood for sake of the people we love? Likewise, in creating human beings, God invested His entire Being in us; we are the bone of His bones, the flesh of His flesh and the ideal of His ideals. Therefore, God can relate with us as His beloved object partners and His hope. (78:111-12, May 6, 1975)

When God created heaven and earth, after each day of creation, “God saw that it was good.” This means He felt joy. What is the experience of joy? It is the feeling of satisfaction we have when we accomplish a certain purpose. Because the created universe embodies God’s purposeful consciousness, God rejoiced at its creation. (9:169, May 8, 1960)

Every result begins from a motive or cause. Every existence begins from a motive and unfolds through a process before it materializes as a result. This is the case with all natural phenomena. Human beings did not make it so; rather, this is a basic principle and heavenly law, God’s law. For this reason, there is no such thing as the evolution of new species by random mutation. All things exist in order. The world was created by design, in which every existence, as an object-partner of God, arose through a principled process out of that motive [in the mind of God]. Consider successful people: could they succeed without a firm determination in their minds? Starting with a motive and plan in their mind, they prepare the ground and steadfastly push forward to reach their objective. Since this is necessary for an individual to succeed, would it not also be necessary for God, the Creator of this great universe, to attain His objectives? It is the same principle. (9:227, May 29, 1960)

The natural world contains such a wide diversity of creatures. What was the process by which each was created? They were created through the Creator’s heart of dedication and sincerity. Even the microscopic organisms were created through God’s heart of love and His cherished desire to exhibit His own splendor. (20:248, July 7, 1968)

God carried out His work of creation with the utmost sincerity, dedication and investment. He established the standard of absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience, and then invested absolutely. All created beings are God’s beloved object partners, whom He created by investing with utmost sincerity. (400:81, December 27, 2002)

Each of you wishes for your partner of love to be better than you in every way. By the same token, God is looking to create something and someone greater than Himself. Do you suppose God would expend only 90 percent of His energy in creating the universe, or would He give His full 100 percent? How about 100 percent a thousand times over? Indeed, He would invest and forget what He gave, and give again and again a thousand times over. Know that this is how our universe was created: God invested 100 percent of His energy, giving and forgetting what He gave, and repeating the process tens of thousands of times. (254:266, February 15, 1994)

What kind of family is the family of
True Parents? The family of True Par-
ents is a fruit of history, the center of the
age, and the origin of the future. Hence,
when our world becomes the heaven-
ly kingdom of hope in the future, True
Parents’ entire lives will be the origin of
its traditions. This is the original source
of the national ideology. Also, this is the
original point from which to establish
that world. You should always estab-
lish the three-generation realm with
True Parents, based on the connection
as children of True Parents. The three
generations are God, Parents and you.
Horizontally, there are also three gen-
erations: I myself, my own children and
you. Heaven and earth will not be uni-
fied until these three generations have
been completed. (44-169, 1971.5.6)

Are you married? Do you have hus-
bands? When animals are in heat and
yearning for a mate they go out in search
of their mates by scent and not sight. Sim-
ilarly, you need to initiate a great physi-
ological revolution. But due to the Fall,
we have not yet reached the standard of
using all our senses. What is lovemaking
like for animals? You watched the mov-
ie earlier today, didn’t you? In the Dong
River located in Gangwon Province you
can find Hemibarbus mylodon, a type of
fish with no sexual organs. There is a line
running through the body of the fish,
and that is their sexual organ. When the
females give off their odor in heat, the
males rub their bodies against the line
on the bodies of the females, and there is
a spark. Then the males secrete seminal
fluid. It is truly amazing. How are they
able to lay eggs in water? That is how
they make love. (301-195, 1999.4.26)

Knowledge of God

Formless, Invisible, Mystery

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

You cannot see God even in the spirit world. Can you see energy? God is the original source of energy. Therefore, even in the spirit world He cannot be seen. (105:193, October 21, 1979)

God is formless. He is infinitely greater than any concept of bigness and infinitesimally smaller than any concept of smallness. (35:157, October 13, 1970)

What is the shape of love? If love had a certain shape, like a square, then it could only accommodate a square-shaped person. But because love is like the air, without shape or form, it can fill any shape or form. Love can be sometimes round, sometimes thin. It can be stretched like an elastic thread, even thousands of miles. Yet love never complains, “I’m already too stretched. Don’t pull me any more!” Love always has the attitude, “Pull me more. Stretch me further.” That is opposite from, “Too much! Stop it!” Even if the love thread breaks, God would want to keep unwinding it from its spool. That love string will pull God and stretch Him out. Even if God felt pain at this, His “Ouch!” would be a joyful one. (167:115, July 1, 1987)

How heavy do you think God is? How many kilograms does He weigh? A hundred billion tons? Were God that heavy, He would have a serious problem trying to move around. Rather, it is ideal that God is invisible. Even if you carried Him inside your wallet, you would not feel any weight. Being invisible, God can pass through the eye of even the smallest needle. He can move around at will. Being infinitely large yet also infinitely small, He can freely move about anywhere in the universe. (136:106)

You should be grateful that God is invisible. If you could see Him [as He commented on your every action and every word], you would have a nervous breakdown and would be dead within an hour. This is no laughing matter. I tell you this from my own poignant experience. (38:244)

God is very smart. He thought, “The most convenient way to exercise My sovereignty is to be invisible. Then I can do as I wish without being seen or caught by anyone.” Despite not having a body, “it is enough,” He considered, that I can fulfill my duty as the Lord.” Suppose God had a body. If He said to the cosmos, whose span is 21 billion light years, “Come to my bosom and rest inside of Me,” could God do His duty? Imagine the vast distances! How long would it take God’s mind to reach His body? God could foresee that He would be miserable. Having conceived all possibilities, God decided to take dominion as a formless, invisible existence. Being invisible, God can move about at His convenience. Moreover, nobody feels troubled when God travels about the physical world. Even if God were to step on your body, you would not notice. How convenient! It is simple logic that God chose to be an invisible God because that resulted in the most convenience…
