Hosea 5

Israel, your pride
    testifies to your guilt;
it makes you stumble,
    and Judah stumbles too.

Daniel 4

I was enjoying a time of peace and prosperity, when suddenly I had some horrifying dreams and visions. Then I commanded every wise man in Babylonia to appear in my court, so they could explain the meaning of my dream. After they arrived, I told them my dream, but they were not able to say what it meant. Finally, a young man named Daniel came in, and I told him the dream. The holy gods had given him special powers, and I had renamed him Belteshazzar after my own god.

From this viewpoint, what kind of
stance do you all need to take in meet-
ing this new age? Your conviction for the
dawning of the homeland must be burn-
ing in your chest more passionately than
any other thing. In other words, you have
to feel pride in becoming a flag bearer
who builds the homeland that God has
longed for six thousand years. You have
to take pride in bearing the responsibili-
ty for this incredible pioneering mission
as a member of the crack troops stand-
ing on the front line. Many people in the
past hoped for this mission, but even so,
it was not available to them. You have
to have a very solemn sense of responsi-
bility for having taken on this one-time-
only privileged mission.
So every aspect of your lifestyle, eat-
ing and sleeping, coming and going, has
to be for the establishment of the home-
land. How much do you think God has
been longing for you to step forward
and cheerfully, coolly declare you will
carry out this mission as an emissary
dispatched especially by God Himself?
Up until now, God has been mercilessly
pushed aside, heartlessly chased away.
He needs to establish the will of Heav-
en, the will He has never been able to
unfold, a will that presents its entire con-
tents on the basis of a complete national
foundation, the Will that can establish
the homeland. He has never been able to
fulfill this will even once.

Alaska, where the ceremony of The
Ceremony of the Settlement of the Eight
Stages was held, is becoming famous. The
last time I came here I said I would build
a church at the North Pole. If the Sovi-
et Communist Party opposes it, I will
take the responsibility. I will build the
Unification Church at the North Pole.
You have to spend your life in order to
build the foundation of blessing for all
people of the world, but before you die,
come to our Church at the North Pole
and offer your devotion for forty days
and then you can die. Think about this.
An ideal city will be created in a world
of icebergs. Then, even though it will be
thousands of miles away, everything can
be supplied by the air. You should try
living like this. It would be a wonderful
thing. With the power of science today,
that would be nothing. We can use pre-
fabricated systems. So we will build an
airfield and try to live there, so what
problem could arise? We are creating
a base in the tourist area of Kodiak…
think about it. It will become a gate-
way unprecedented in history. (193-217,

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.

CSG 1998

Thus, the Kingdom of Heaven on
earth would be built, and at the same
time we would become united with
God. We need God to come down to the
earth. We need to attend Him as the sub-
ject figure of the Kingdom of Heaven,
and thus establish one unified Kingdom
of Heaven on earth and in spirit world.
You need to understand that this is the
mission to be fulfilled by Unificationists.
On such a foundation, we would final-
ly become one with the Parent and be
able to live peacefully in the Kingdom
of Heaven. (79-83, 1975.6.1)

Isaiah 66

24 My people will go out and look at the dead bodies of those who turned against me. The worms there never die, the fire never stops burning, and the sight of those bodies will be disgusting to everyone.

I am in a position to retake these
nations of Korea and Japan centering on
the Adam nation and Eve nation. With
the arrival of the age of restoration, they
must be restored centering on Eve. That
is why the Eve nation, Japan, holds all the
economic power. Consequently, Ameri-
ca needs Japan, China needs Japan, and
Korea needs Japan as well. In the realm
of competition, these nations are at war
with each other, vying to be the first to
attract Japan. I know about this. That is
why I brought them into exchange mar-
riages and completely tied Korea and
Japan together. America, China, and the
Soviet Union did not oppose this union.

CSG 741

The spirit world must be mobilized.
How can heaven be formed without
mobilizing the spirit world? It cannot.
Heaven is supposed to begin from the
True Parents, not the fallen descendants
who have existed until now. Just as the
angelic world helped when Adam was
created, the spirit world should return to
earth and help in the re-creation. With-
out doing so, it is not possible to build
heaven on earth. Is that not the Princi-
ple? Is this not the Principle of Resurrec-
tion? It will be recognized as true when
it appears as real and unchanging. (162-

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.

CSG 1566

There are eight stages in indemnity,
namely on the levels of the individual,
family, tribe, people, nation, world, cos-
mos and God’s heart. These in turn lead
to restoration in those same eight stag-
es. This means that, through the verti-
cal and horizontal courses of indem-
nity centered on love, everything can
safely proceed in any direction. Once
this connection with love is made, the
sphere that is created is possessed by
the domain of love. When this happens,
nothing on earth can remain Satan’s
possession and he will be banished at
once. It will be the end for him. (199-188,
1990.2.16)

CSG 1341-1342

The 72 Couples are like the children,
the descendants of the 36 Couples, while
the 36 are the central couples as well as
the ancestors. Our view is that our ances-
tors failed to fulfill God’s will because
Cain and Abel, the two sons in the first
family in history, failed to become one
in heart, thus deferring the fulfillment
of God’s will. In view of the fact that
the foundation of the family, in which
the brothers Cain and Abel should have
united, was not established, who then
are the 72 Couples? Seventy-two is thir-
ty-six twice. Thus, the 72 Couples repre-
senting the children of the 36 Couples
Book 9 • Blessed Family 1342
comprise 36 Abel and 36 Cain couples.
They are the representative couples cho-
sen to restore through indemnity that
which the historical ancestors failed to
accomplish: the complete unity of Abel
and Cain. (84-144, 1976.2.22)

Ruth 4

13 Boaz married Ruth, and the Lord blessed her with a son. 14 After his birth, the women said to Naomi:

Praise the Lord! Today he has given you a grandson to take care of you. We pray that the boy will grow up to be famous everywhere in Israel. 15 He will[c] make you happy and take care of you in your old age, because he is the son of your daughter-in-law. And she loves you more than seven sons of your own would love you.

16 Naomi loved the boy and took good care of him. 17 The neighborhood women named him Obed, but they called him “Naomi’s Boy.”

When Obed grew up he had a son named Jesse, who later became the father of King David. 18-22 Here is a list of the ancestors of David: Jesse, Obed, Boaz, Salmon, Nahshon, Amminadab, Ram, Hezron, and Perez.

Richard:  The story of Ruth is about a non-traditional way of perpetuating the lineage.  You descendants are very important, especially once you are part of God’s Blessed lineage.

Matthew 13

34 Jesus used stories when he spoke to the people. In fact, he did not tell them anything without using stories. 35 So God’s promise came true, just as the prophet[b] had said,

“I will use stories
    to speak my message
and to explain things
    that have been hidden
since the creation
    of the world.”

This universe is a museum of love.
Human beings must become the own-
ers of this museum. The mineral world
and plant world multiply centering on
relationships of love. Without love, his-
tory would end. History can continue
because there is reproduction. Conse-
quently, man and woman should mar-
ry and give birth to children. Without
doing so, they cannot find their place in
the spirit world. When a baby is born,
you should come before God and offer
that baby as a gift to Him. Without
this gift, you cannot hold your head up
proudly.
When you go back to your home-
town, what is it you will be most proud
of and want to show your parents? You
will take pride in how well you raised
your children. It is the same in the spirit
world. When you go before God, there is
no greater gift than bringing God’s chil-
dren, the people of heaven, whom you
have raised on this earth. Money, power,
and knowledge are not important. (229-
15, 1992.4.9)

Ezekiel 4

Ezekiel, son of man, find a brick and sketch a picture of Jerusalem on it. Then prepare to attack the brick as if it were a real city. Build a dirt mound and a ramp up to the top and surround the brick with enemy camps. On every side put large wooden poles as though you were going to break down the gate to the city. Set up an iron pan like a wall between you and the brick. All this will be a warning for the people of Israel.

CSG 435

Humankind continues to be plagued
by conflicts based on power or knowl-
edge. The time when the war of love
can be waged has not yet come. This is
why religious leaders say that their time
will come when the end of the world
approaches. When the end of the world
comes, the power of the fist and the power
of knowledge will pass away, and only the
power of love will remain. The final age
of worldly supremacy is none other than
the Last Days. Can a strong elder brother
come home and be the boss there? No.
No matter how strong the elder brother
may be, he cannot be the boss when he
comes home. He may be a world champi-
on in the ring, but he cannot be the boss
at home. Even when an elder brother has
several hundred doctorates, can he come
home and be the boss? No, not even then.
Why not? Because his parents are there.
(50-134, 1971.11.6)

CSG 1699

When seeking the fundamentals of
the universe, we arrive at the concept
of subject and object. Even the smallest
woman sitting here has power within
her, does she not? Would the power in
this small woman desire to be the weak
power of a small man, or the strong
power of a big man? This is the case for
the man too; if he were a small man,
he would yearn for the power of a big
woman. Why is this so? It is to attain a
balance. Balance is the issue; you need
to be perfectly perpendicular on a hori-
zontal base. That is why the term ideal
of reciprocity arises; it is from there that
the ideal of reciprocity is derived. (216-9,
1991.3.3)
