At Seodaemun prison, a lady evangelist
who had persevered for a time in
the Unification Church but who then left
after things did not turn out the way she
wanted, said to me, “Oh, this has turned
out well for you. Would this happen to
the son of God?” I answered “Yes, I am
not someone who will disappear in prison.
I will make great leaps toward a liberated
world.” I will never forget her face. I
heard that she recently died in miserable
circumstances, and I felt pity for her. This
is how I live. I know everything about
how the five presidents of Korea treated
me. Yet I do not show this. I do not
seek revenge. They did not know. I have
to meet them and teach them. After saying
what I need to say, I have to resolve
everything. (204-118, 1990.7.1)

p. 157 pr. 4

Cain and Abel have no original portion
of responsibility to fulfill. Then who
would have had responsibility? It would
be Adam and Eve, the parents. Since I
was given this obligation in the providence
of restoration, I took responsibility
for what you had failed to achieve
and for the errors committed by Christianity.
For forty years, in the position
of the parents, I corrected everything
on the levels of the individual, family,
tribe, people, nation and world. In
this way, I completed the individual’s
portion of responsibility in restoration
through indemnity, erected walls
to shut Satan out, and established the
realm of the fulfillment of one’s portion
of responsibility. This is how a new
world can begin thenceforth.
Since I have now achieved all this on
a level even beyond that of the world, it
has now become possible to build God’s
kingdom. Thus, a new term has emerged
– the establishment of God’s Kingdom
1608 Book 10 • The Way in the Completed Testament Age
or homeland. This is all in accordance
with the Principle. (148-163, 1986.10.8)

Hosea 10

You were a healthy vine
    covered with grapes.
But the more grapes you grew,
    the more altars you built;
the better off you became,
the better shrines you set up
    for pagan gods.
You are deceitful and disloyal.
So you will pay
    for your sins,
because the Lord will destroy
    your altars and images.

Isaiah 1

I hate your New Moon Festivals
    and all others as well.
They are a heavy burden
    I am tired of carrying.

15 “No matter how much you pray,
I won’t listen.
    You are too violent.
16 Wash yourselves clean!
I am disgusted
    with your filthy deeds.
Stop doing wrong
17     and learn to live right.
See that justice is done.
Defend widows and orphans
    and help those in need.”[e

You women, do you have such big
breasts for yourselves? Do you have big
hips for yourselves? There is not one
part of you that belongs to you. Everything
that women have is not theirs. It
is for others, for their children and their
husbands. None of their physiological
organs or the sexual organ exists for the
woman alone. Then who would be the
owner of the male organ? The owner is
woman. It is the wife who holds the key.
If she were to use it wrongly, she would
incur the punishment of heaven. Why
did Sodom and Gomorrah go to ruin?
Why is the United States on the way to
destruction? They came to ruin through
drugs and promiscuity. (142-150, 1986.3.8)

Sex education is unnecessary. People
talk of free sex and sex education, but
I say, “You crazy fools, stop!” Is there
sex education in the animal kingdom?
When they are next to each other, they
fit together naturally. Some animal has
its sexual organ under its shoulder, and
its mate fits its own sexual organ into it,
though the latter may have it on its heel.
They are meant to fit together automatically.
Are the magnets forced to match
their poles with the North Pole and the
South Pole, or do they do so automatically?
They find the poles automatically.
Once your mind and body are ready
to be in tune with true love, if you let
yourself, you will automatically find the
direction, north, south, east or west, and
fit yourself in.

Rev. Sun Myung Moon

For my part, I have traveled the world
to reveal God’s ideals and His providence
in order to actualize the vision of
world peace on the basis of God’s original
plan. To this end, I have established
many international organizations. But
the path is long, and there remains a lot
of work for all of us to do. What is the
ideal of God? It goes without saying that
the original ideal of God is to realize a
peaceful world. In such a world, there
are no divisions or conflicts. It is a world
filled with unity, harmony and joy. The
greatest and quickest means to this end
is through true love. True love is the factor
of unity and the origin of joy and
happiness. That is why I would say that
the prerequisite of peace is true love.
The reason why human beings are
still unable to make true peace is because
they are ignorant of true love. Why? The
answer, as mentioned in the Bible, is that
humankind has separated from God.
Due to the Fall of the first human
ancestors, Adam and Eve established
the first family without God’s blessing.
Peace has been absent from this world
ever since. Instead, divisions, conflicts,
and struggles have come to rule this
world. In the individual, the struggle
between mind and body, the conflicts
between husband and wife at the family
level, and the struggles between societies
are accepted as normal, everyday life.
It is my conviction that all human
problems are caused by the fundamental
loss of true love. The fall of humankind
meant the loss of true love. Consequently,
Jesus came as the King of true love
in order to restore the love that Adam
and Eve had lost. By the same token, the
Lord at his Second Advent is coming in
order to restore true love. That is the logical
conclusion, seen from the view of
the providence of salvation.
My life until today, and my quest for
world peace, has been concentrated on
the point of how humankind can restore
true love. When we look at the moral
degradation of the world, we can think
of how great God’s sorrow must be.
Watching this world decline breaks my
heart and brings tears to my eyes. The
spirit of our young people is wounded
by the practice of so-called “free sex”,
which is an evil similar to the immorality
and adultery of Sodom and Gomorrah.
The greatest sorrow of God is to
see humankind going down this path of
irresponsible destruction.

Leviticus 14

29-31 And he will pour the rest of the oil from his palm on your head.

Then, depending on what you can afford, he will offer either the doves or the pigeons together with the grain sacrifice. One of the birds is the sacrifice for sin, and the other is the sacrifice to please me. After this you will be completely clean.

Proverbs 3

By his wisdom and knowledge
    the Lord created
    heaven and earth.
20 By his understanding
he let the ocean break loose
    and clouds release the rain.
21 My child, use common sense
and sound judgment!
    Always keep them in mind.
22 They will help you to live
    a long and beautiful life.
23 You will walk safely
    and never stumble;
24     you will rest without a worry
    and sleep soundly.
25 So don’t be afraid
    of sudden disasters
    or storms that strike
    those who are evil.
26 You can be sure
    that the Lord
    will protect you from harm.

Deuteronomy 24

12 Suppose someone is so poor that a coat is the only thing that can be offered as a guarantee on a loan. Don’t keep the coat overnight. 13 Instead, give it back before sunset, so the owner can keep warm and sleep and ask the Lord to bless you. Then the Lord your God will notice that you have done the right thing.

Moses said:

14 If you hire poor people to work for you, don’t hold back their pay,[e]whether they are Israelites or foreigners who live in your town. 15 Pay them their wages at the end of each day, because they live in poverty and need the money to survive. If you don’t pay them on time, they will complain about you to the Lord, and he will punish you.

John 4

28 The woman left her water jar and ran back into town. She said to the people, 29 “Come and see a man who told me everything I have ever done! Could he be the Messiah?” 30 Everyone in town went out to see Jesus.

31 While this was happening, Jesus’ disciples were saying to him, “Teacher, please eat something.”

32 But Jesus told them, “I have food that you don’t know anything about.”

33 His disciples started asking each other, “Has someone brought him something to eat?”

34 Jesus said:

My food is to do what God wants! He is the one who sent me, and I must finish the work that he gave me to do. 35 You may say that there are still four months until harvest time. But I tell you to look, and you will see that the fields are ripe and ready to harvest.

36 Even now the harvest workers are receiving their reward by gathering a harvest that brings eternal life. Then everyone who planted the seed and everyone who harvests the crop will celebrate together. 37 So the saying proves true, “Some plant the seed, and others harvest the crop.” 38 I am sending you to harvest crops in fields where others have done all the hard work.

Jeremiah 31

I, the Lord, will bring
my people back from Babylonia[c]
    and everywhere else on earth.
The blind and the lame
    will be there.
Expectant mothers
    and women about to give birth
will come and be part
    of that great crowd.
They will weep and pray
    as I bring them home.
I will lead them
    to streams of water.
They will walk on a level[d] road
    and not stumble.
I am a father to Israel,[e]
    my favorite children.

Richard:  All these verses are about reaching out to the lost sheep of Israel.  That would be Christians who have lost the way and are suffering in hell/ the hell of this world.

The Word of Completion Can Solve Factional Fighting

Matthew 1

Jesus Christ came from the family of King David and also from the family of Abraham. And this is a list of his ancestors. 2-6a  From Abraham to King David, his ancestors were:

Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Judah and his brothers (Judah’s sons were Perez and Zerah, and their mother was Tamar), Hezron;

Ram, Amminadab, Nahshon, Salmon, Boaz (his mother was Rahab), Obed (his mother was Ruth), Jesse, and King David.

Jeremiah 11

21 Then the Lord said:

Jeremiah, some men from Anathoth[c] say they will kill you, if you keep on speaking for me. 22 But I will punish them. Their young men will die in battle, and their children will starve to death. 23 And when I am finished, no one from their families will be left alive.

The Substantial Entity is the Lord of the Second Coming

Numbers 27

Our father left no sons to carry on his family name. But why should his name die out for that reason? Give us some land like the rest of his relatives in our clan, so our father’s name can live on.

Richard:  Passing on your inheritance to your children is very important.  You want to pass on physical things of value like land or gold or silver.  And you want to pass on your legacy.

Psalms 55

But what about those people
    who are cruel and brutal?
You will throw them down
    into the deepest pit 
long before their time.
    I trust you, Lord!

Let Us Be the People Who Attend God

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
February 2, 1958

John 14: 1-17

Jesus said, “I am the way and the truth and the life.” This was meant to show us God’s word personally and to show us God’s substantial entity. It was to show us God in person. Jesus Christ’s was not a life that simply passed through thirty years or so. He was the embodiment of life who appeared resembling the Shim Jung of the love of God, who had loved humankind throughout His toil of 4,000 years.

What was Jesus, the central being of the word, to do after having come to this earth? God had toiled for 4,000 years to establish Jesus instead of the lost word in the Garden of Eden. He was the second Adam, the incarnation of the word. After attaining the word and the substantial entity centering on God’s eternal love, God tried to form a love relationship with human beings. Even though God and Jesus were able to be united centering on eternal, true love relations, human beings could not form an eternal love relationship with God.

God’s love appears centering surely on the word. Jesus, who was God’s word and embodiment, appeared. Yet while the word has remained, the substantial being, Jesus, has left for good. That is why we ended up living in a sorrowful world where we must live centering on the word.

In the end, what do human beings wish for through the word? It is to find Jesus again. Having the word in our possession will not be enough. We must attend the substantial being. However, because there is no substantial being to attend people yearn for that. The earth is to be moved by finding and setting up the one person who is one with God’s word. History has flowed forth to look for this substantial being of God’s word.

What is the purpose of Jesus’ announcing the word? It is to see the emergence of people who can represent God’s and Jesus’ word. The word that God and Jesus spoke will bear the fruit in the final days. History up to now is the history of the process of re-creation. Therefore, the focus of the word Jesus spoke at the end was, “I am the bridegroom and you are the brides.” Yet the person who possesses the word of immutability, who can represent the word of Jesus, the bridegroom, has yet to appear. You should understand this.

God’s hope was not for Jesus simply to leave after having come to this earth; neither was it for Jesus simply to propagate the word. God hoped for one substantial being who could represent God’s and Jesus’ word by qualifying, through the word, to be the bride.

Jesus came to this earth as God’s body. Centering on God’s life, he was to accomplish the garden of God’s love. This was the purpose of Jesus’ coming. Jesus’ body was the substantial being in whom God could rest. For that reason, just as God loves Jesus and Jesus loves human beings, someone was required who could love.

Because Jesus came with this understanding in his heart, he opened the way for the faithful believers in later generations to be able to become his bride. Jesus is the bridegroom of humankind. Humankind must come to be the bride of Christ. For that reason, as Jesus was so sincere toward God, human beings have to be very sincere toward Jesus. Jesus was to have found a person like this.

Owing to the fall of humankind, the word was lost in the Garden of Eden and so was the substantial being. Human beings should have found the word and the substantial being in Jesus when he came. Yet because humankind killed Jesus, we experienced only the grace of being able to receive the word.

It is a blessing for you today to be in a sphere where you can recreate Adam’s hyung-sang before the fall by relying on the word.

The one who will come as the substantial entity is the Lord of the Second Coming. Because this is the principle of creation, the Lord of the Second Coming cannot come on a cloud. The principle of the rule of Heaven cannot be reversed. Human beings have longed until today for a substantial being of the word since Jesus left. This is the ideal of a Second Advent; it is the hope of the 2,000 years of Christian history.

Jesus stopped Mary Magdalene when she tried to grab hold of his resurrected being. Human beings cannot grasp Jesus in a substantial way. You should understand that Jesus did that because he could leave behind nothing but the word.

Therefore, now you should become the second Christ incarnate who can represent this word and be a representative of Jesus’ mind, Jesus’ sense of responsibility, and God’s Shim Jung. Humankind, including Christianity, living on this earth today can find the word in place of such a Shim Jung. Relying upon that word, they can find a substantial being of that word. Yet they don’t know or appreciate this.
