Act on Behalf of God’s Situation

Who Will Protect the Second Amendment; Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton?

1 Samuel 9

7Saul said to his servant, “If we go, what can we give the man? The food in our sacks is gone. We have no gift to take to the man of God. What do we have?”

Jeremiah 51

56A destroyer will come against Babylon;

her warriors will be captured,

and their bows will be broken.

For the Lord is a God of retribution;

he will repay in full.

57I will make her officials and wise men drunk,

her governors, officers and warriors as well;

they will sleep forever and not awake,”

declares the King, whose name is the Lord Almighty.

Let Us Become the Citizens Who Take Possession of the Kingdom of Heaven

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
June 2, 1957

Because there was Jesus who was determined to take responsibility over the historical toils and pains of God, Satan could not accuse even when God used the powers of resurrection and resurrected Jesus. You who are following this Jesus must follow the example of Jesus and be responsible for the pain and bitterness of God who has been leading the dispensation of restoration for 6,000 years, and you should step forward and on behalf of humanity receive God’s whip of indignation, striking down upon the faithlessness of the people. This is the time that heaven demands this kind of believers.

If among you emerges a believer who is willing to bear not only the suffering of this people, but also the suffering of humanity and suffering and sorrow of God’s 6,000 years, and bear God’s whip of judgment toward humanity, then God will allow the second resurrection of Christ through that person. When this takes place, this earth naturally will be connected to the ideology of the Kingdom of Heaven.

Now, just as Jesus shouldered the 4,000-year history of restoration in God’s place and made it possible for Him to rest, we must become the believers who can say to Jesus who has been fighting with Satan for 2,000 years, “Lord, now please rest. We will take charge of your tasks.” Similarly, you have arrived at the level where you must bear responsibility for the work of Jesus who has been exerting himself. In other words, all the believers on the earth must shoulder the pain and grief of God, and the pains and sorrows of Jesus and the Holy Spirit in their place. We must naturally take responsibility to accomplish this feat….

If you understand these details, then you should pour out all of your heart and soul to fulfill the Principle mission. Furthermore, as did Jesus who was fighting against Satan in the Garden of Gethsemane on behalf of the people, even if the world puts up opposition, even if tribulations confront you on a world scale, you should become the loyal subject who surpasses all loyal subjects of history, and become the filial son of all filial sons and woman of fidelity of all women of fidelity.

Unless you become true children of God who possess this heavenly value and can dominate Satan, so that God can boast about you before Satan, Satan cannot recognize you before heaven, and the standard of heaven cannot be established on earth.

Assuming the Father wants this kind of person to emerge, in the same way that Jesus and the Holy Spirit have suffered through pains and called out to the Father to raise the dignity and prestige of God, with the parent-child relationship with God that can never be severed, you must also raise the dignity and prestige of God and act on behalf of God’s situation. If such persons appear more often among our people than among any other people, then just as God abandoned the faithless Jewish people and formed the second Israel centering on the twelve disciples of Jesus, He will create the third Israel centering on the Korean people and achieve the great feat of materializing the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. Furthermore, when this nation inherits the heart of Jesus and God and exhibits utmost sincerity to spread the will of God to the people of the world and fulfills its responsibility to realize the will of God, this people will receive the blessing of heaven.

Jesus Shows Us the True Parnet-Child Relationship with God

1 Samuel 30

11They found an Egyptian in a field and brought him to David. They gave him water to drink and food to eat— 12part of a cake of pressed figs and two cakes of raisins. He ate and was revived, for he had not eaten any food or drunk any water for three days and three nights.

1 Samuel 7

7When the Philistines heard that Israel had assembled at Mizpah, the rulers of the Philistines came up to attack them. When the Israelites heard of it, they were afraid because of the Philistines. 8They said to Samuel, “Do not stop crying out to the Lord our God for us, that he may rescue us from the hand of the Philistines.” 9Then Samuel took a suckling lamb and sacrificed it as a whole burnt offering to the Lord. He cried out to the Lord on Israel’s behalf, and the Lord answered him.

10While Samuel was sacrificing the burnt offering, the Philistines drew near to engage Israel in battle. But that day the Lord thundered with loud thunder against the Philistines and threw them into such a panic that they were routed before the Israelites. 11The men of Israel rushed out of Mizpah and pursued the Philistines, slaughtering them along the way to a point below Beth Kar.

Let Us Become the Citizens Who Take Possession of the Kingdom of Heaven

Originally, the relationship between God and man was the eternal and unchangeable relationship between parent and child who live and die together, but because of the fall, human beings have been living for 4,000 years without creating that parent-child relationship with God. Jesus was the person who mourned over this fact more than anyone else. He came to the earth after attaining a complete parent-child relationship with God and tried to fulfill the will of God and save human beings. Therefore, Jesus is the Father and ancestor of us human beings. You must rectify the dignity and prestige of Jesus.

The karma of the heavenly principles is that all human beings are to completely achieve the parent-child relationship with God. However, unless someone on earth accomplishes this task first, no one can form the parent-child relationship with God. Now, we must meet that person and serve God as our parents, and we must feel God’s grief as our own grief, feel God’s anguish as our own anguish, and feel God’s distress as our own. Only then can we form the parent-child relationship with God.

The reason that human beings could not find God, though they piercingly cried out to Him with desperate heart, is because due to the fall they could not create the parent-child relationship with God, and because the love relations according to the Heavenly laws have not been established. Accordingly, we must understand the reason human beings have fallen into this position, and, by revealing the true identity of Satan, restore the original position.

There is no need for the parent-child relationship formed only with words or built only on promises. Only when we exert all of our heart and strength to live for the sake of Father’s will, and only when we endure through suffering that melts our flesh and blood to bring victory, can we rehabilitate the parent-child relationship with God.

Then, in the same way that Jesus bore the cross and crossed over the hill of Golgotha to establish the Father’s dignity and prestige and for the sake of the Father’s glory, you must also be able to climb easily over the path of Golgotha on the world level. Otherwise, you will stand in the same position as the archangel, who has been betraying God’s ideology of Heaven for 6,000 years.

You must understand that God dwells near you and more than anyone else worries about each of you. In the world, it is believed that the love of physical parents is the greatest, but you must understand that the love of God is even greater and deeper, greater and deeper than any kind of humanistic love in the world.

You can be embraced inside Father’s bosom of love and call out, “Father,” and you can experience the internal heart of God from the position where you can say, “Now I understand the grief of God.” If you become this kind of sons and daughters and possess the Kingdom of Heaven that worships God, then no one can seize that heaven away from you.

Next, you can take responsibility for and alleviate the suffering of God. You also should feel furious about the fact that God is suffering. You have to understand that Jesus felt furious about Satan who has been afflicting God for 4,000 years, and he was determined to overcome suffering that is more intense than the suffering of the 4,000 years. Jesus could drag even the people who transgress the will of God and do not walk the path of the will, and after reforming history and practical reality, he could proclaim, “Father, I have taken responsibility for your sufferings, so please forget all your worries and cast aside all agonies of the dispensation.” Moreover, Jesus was willing even to share the agony that God felt through Heaven and the universe. Consequently, when the descendants of the Israelite people who took charge of the will of God for 4,000 years drove Jesus to the road of death of Golgotha, Jesus forgot his own pains, and instead he clung onto and comforted Father whose heart was torn apart in great distress as He was looking down upon His dying son.

If there is someone among you who can also comfort the Father, even as you are in the same difficult situation as Jesus, then such people can build the Kingdom of Heaven and no one can block the path of that person.

Jesus was the Most Filial Son

Let Us Become the Citizens Who Take Possession of the Kingdom of Heaven

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
June 2, 1957

You who have gathered here, you who have stepped forward without fear for life and death, ready for the road of troubles, the road of the cross, you who have come in search for the situation of God that could not be told to human beings for 6,000 long years! Have you really come to become filial sons and daughters of God? Have you come to become loyal subjects and women of fidelity? If you have come forward in this path of the will to become that kind of person, then the problem is what you have sought until now, what you have felt, and what you have manifested to God. Everything is brought to conclusion here. When we look from this position, clearly you have to all become the heirs of Jesus Christ. Even if there is a center on this earth, there is nothing that is more central than Jesus and even in enduring through a difficult environment, there is no one who persevered through an environment more difficult than that of Jesus.

Because of human beings, even as he was crossing the difficult hill of death, Jesus prayed, “Father, please do not let their sins fall upon them!” This road is the solitary path of Jesus which no one else could travel.

When we make the association with the road that Jesus walked on, we must realize it was clearly not for the sake of his own self. Furthermore, Jesus did not try to relate with God’s will based on the biblical perspective of that time, and he did not try to deal with the will of God centering on the Israelite people. Always based on a new point of view, Jesus had made the preparations to relate with the new will of God.

In this way, he taught a true individual path to human beings, and made it possible for them to realize a new perspective on life. The path that Jesus traveled was a mournful road personally, but he experienced a love from God that people on the earth could not experience. Moreover, he mourned over the fact that God who created all things could not indulge in His rightful glory as the master of all things due to the people who were living with a habitual attitude of faith….

If you who live in the last days know that Jesus offered some thirty- odd years of his life to walk the road of conflict to realize the Kingdom of Heaven for which God longs, in other words, to fulfill the will of God, then you must also become the true Christians who are profoundly concerned about the dignity and prestige of God, so that inheriting the victory of Jesus you can go before God.

Though there are many people on this earth today, there is none who is genuinely concerned about the dignity and prestige of God. If at such time there are some people who fathom the internal heart of God and sorrowfully make the appeal to restore the dignity and prestige of God, then God will turn toward that people the attention that He has withdrawn from the world. In the same way God could look at Judaism, the Jewish people and the world through Jesus Christ, even today he will try to liquidate the forces of Satan by raising you who have cultivated the internal heart of Jesus. Understanding that as the elite soldier of God he would not perish even if the people and the world betrayed him, Jesus fought Satan on earth to eliminate Satan with unchanging conviction and to fulfill his responsibility to rectify the dignity of God.

Therefore, Jesus and the Holy Spirit took up the task of probing into the sins of Satan, who damaged the dignity of God, and then attacking him. This is not all. They tried to construct the Kingdom of Heaven through which human beings can rectify the dignity and prestige of God.

1“In those days and at that time,

when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem,

2I will gather all nations

and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.a

There I will put them on trial

for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel,

because they scattered my people among the nations

and divided up my land.

3They cast lots for my people

and traded boys for prostitutes;

they sold girls for wine to drink

Obadiah 1

5“If thieves came to you,

if robbers in the night—

oh, what a disaster awaits you!—

would they not steal only as much as they wanted?

If grape pickers came to you,

would they not leave a few grapes?

6But how Esau will be ransacked,

his hidden treasures pillaged!

7All your allies will force you to the border;

your friends will deceive and overpower you;

those who eat your bread will set a trap for you,b

but you will not detect it.

Let Us Become the Citizens Who Take Possession of the Kingdom of Heaven

Rev. Sun Myung Moon

So, if we cannot find the Kingdom of Heaven, the foundation of victory where we can rest for eternity, then God and Jesus that we have been believing in, or the shepherd and angels who are following cannot escape from the suffering caused by Satan. You who are connected to heaven must understand what kind of person you were raised as and what kind of mission rests in you.

We have infinite Heavenly value that allows us to stand before God. Therefore, representing human beings and all things, you must develop the one victorious ideology of the heavenly kingdom. After inheriting the many internal agonies of God, who has been exerting himself for 6,000 years, and by inheriting the agony of Jesus and the Holy Spirit, you are to become the victor who can overcome all historical sufferings. God has been searching for this kind of victor for 6,000 years. Therefore, if you do not become this kind of victor, then you cannot materialize the ideology of the kingdom of heaven that God is trying to grant you.

If today on this land of deep resentment, someone can establish the ideology of the Heavenly Kingdom on behalf of Heaven, earth and human beings, then he will become a precious person who brings to fruition the entire purpose of the exertions of God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and the countless prophets and believers, and represent them. This precious person is indeed the one who can save countless ancestors who betrayed God, save from sin the countless humans who are living in the world of sin at the present, and at the same time build God’s eternal Kingdom of Heaven.

The Kingdom of God that human beings have been seeking by transcending history, the Kingdom of Heaven that God hoped to build by sending Jesus to this earth. Human beings of the future hope for the emergence of the one precious person who can fully manifest that kingdom on this earth, while God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and countless prophets and believers have been at strenuous work for the sake of the appearance of that valuable person. If that person does appear on this earth, then God will bear the responsibility to eternally protect that person. This is the principle. Centering on that person, eternal nation and world must be formed on this earth.

We pitiable Korean people, when we look back, our people do not possess anything. There is nothing of which to be proud. We do not have anything valuable of which we can boast to the world.

However, if we transcend the nation and the people and exert ourselves for the sake of the countless humanity, then the Kingdom of Heaven will not first be realized in America, England or some other nation, but, despite the fact that we are pitiful people, we can go before God and before anyone else. We can claim the Heavenly Kingdom as our own. When this takes place, then the many people who are searching for heaven will not be able to go toward God without going through this people.

Then, what kind of mission and role must we fulfill to bring to pass this Kingdom of Heaven? We must make the effort to realize through us the Kingdom of Heaven, for which throughout the long history until now, people have been crying out, “Kingdom of Heaven, please dawn upon us!” even when they were being trampled upon and being torn apart while passing through the road of conflict, the road of death.

If that Heaven is realized on the individual level, in other words, if the individual Kingdom of Heaven in which Father can dwell is actualized, then Heaven must be realized also on the family level. Furthermore, it must be expanded on the society, nation, world and universal levels. You must feel the sense of responsibility to accomplish this Kingdom of Heaven first.

Although many believers and prophets have come and gone in the history until today, God has not been able to fully reveal his internal situation to human beings through them. However, if there emerges a person who can fully divulge the internal situation of God and possess the key to the treasure chest inside the heavenly palace in the dead center of the Kingdom of Heaven, then because of him, God cannot but dwell on this earth.

Let Us Become the Citizens Who Take Possession of the Kingdom of Heaven

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
June 2, 1957

The Kingdom of Heaven that God wants is not the kingdom built only in the spirit world. The Kingdom of Heaven that God wants is the kingdom built on earth first and then built again in the spirit world. Because, after human beings die, the spirit world that their spirits form and the earthly world cannot be separated, in order for you to develop a victorious substantial body and embody the ideology of the kingdom of heaven, you must be able to stand before the Heavenly principles and stand before humanity and demonstrate the ideology of the Kingdom of Heaven through your sphere of life so that you can be connected to the heavenly laws and human ethics. Furthermore, that ideology of the Kingdom of Heaven must become the individual ideology of the Kingdom of Heaven, and simultaneously, it must become the ideology of the Kingdom of Heaven on the family, society, nation, world and universal level. You should be able to manifest this ideology of the Kingdom of Heaven through yourselves.

The Israelite people could not materialize the ideology of the Kingdom of Heaven because they, not only could not understand, but also did not even listen to the words of John the Baptist, though he cried out in the wilderness, “Repent, the Kingdom of Heaven is near.” If today, in this era, there appears a person who announces the ideology of the Kingdom of Heaven, just like the Israelites, you will not be able to hear his words. Not only that, you will stand in the same position as the Israelite people who could not accept the new blessed words of the Kingdom of Heaven of Jesus Christ, who shouted out to the masses as he was being chased from this mountain to that mountain during the three years of public life.

Thus, I repeat that if you cannot experience the historical situation of heaven, which can introduce the ideology of the Kingdom of Heaven to all people through the heavenly nature and can announce the new, John-the- Baptist-type ideology through countless denominations, and if you do not become people who can pull the ideology of the Kingdom of Heaven into your sphere of life and live and act according to those words, then you will never be able to realize the hopeful ideology of the Kingdom of Heaven, which God seeks and desires.

The Kingdom of Heaven that human beings have known until now is not the Kingdom of Heaven of the ideals of creation that God has sought and wanted. When we trace back and examine the course of restoration centered on Jesus for the 2,000 years from Jesus, until today, during which the work was done to build the spiritual Kingdom of Heaven, what Jesus could construct was not the Kingdom of Heaven but Paradise.

So, the ideal of the Kingdom of Heaven that people believe in Jesus hope for also is Paradise. Therefore, the ideals of the Kingdom of Heaven which human beings have today are not the ideal, original Kingdom of Heaven that God and human beings can both accept, but the conditional Kingdom of Heaven while moving toward the construction of the Kingdom of Heaven of God. Therefore, the noun Paradise came into being.

Therefore, if you have truly received the calling as the elite troops of heaven who are to fulfill Jesus’ ideals of the Kingdom of Heaven, then you are not to let Jesus merely remain as the master of Paradise, but by combining all the spirits of the spirit world and all people who live on earth and by opening the door to Paradise, you are to make it possible for Jesus Christ to also be the master of the Kingdom of Heaven. Similarly, the responsibility to elevate Jesus as the master of the Kingdom of Heaven does not rest on God, or on Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit, but on all people of the earth. However, unfortunately, human beings are not aware of this fact.

When we think about this, for the people who are walking the course of restoration, the path that they are walking is far away and difficult. Even if there are other sorrowful paths that human beings are walking on, none of them can be as sad. The reason is that this path is the road of restoration on which we must repeat the course of the conflict of the prophets and sages while we experience their sorrow as our own. Unless we live to cross over all the difficult courses that the countless prophets and sages walked, even if they are perilously high and steep mountains or the path of cross or of Golgotha that they climbed over after they came to the earth, we cannot follow the footsteps of Jesus.

The road that you are traveling, your life of faith, is not easy. This is because your life cannot be only for your own sake. You live for the sake of the spirits who are dwelling in Paradise, and furthermore, you have the mission to accomplish the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. Though you might have suffered many sorrows and have made many pledges for the sake of your own life, if it was only for your own living, then you can never achieve even your personal will.

This earth will never leave uninterrupted the road that you are walking alone. The reason is that this earth became a land dominated by Satan due to the fall. So, Satan who has been confronting God for 6,000 years is blocking your path.

Richard:  In the last days we should not be among the foolish ones  to ultimately reject God’s calling to follow Jesus and his representative on earth at the Second Coming.  Rev. Sun Myung Moon has taught us about the true heart of Jesus, and his son, Rev. Hyung Jin Moon is continueing that tradition, representing his father.

5If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.

5“We have found this man to be a troublemaker, stirring up riots among the Jews all over the world. He is a ringleader of the Nazarene sect 6and even tried to desecrate the temple; so we seized him. [7]a 8By examining him yourself you will be able to learn the truth about all these charges we are bringing against him.”

9The other Jews joined in the accusation, asserting that these things were true.

Let Us Become the Citizens Who Take Possession of the Kingdom of Heaven

Rev. Sun Myung Moon

33 “Listen to another parable: There was a landowner who planted a vineyard. He put a wall around it, dug a winepress in it and built a watchtower. Then he rented the vineyard to some farmers and moved to another place. 34 When the harvest time approached, he sent his servants to the tenants to collect his fruit. 35 “The tenants seized his servants; they beat one, killed another, and stoned a third. 36 Then he sent other servants to them, more than the first time, and the tenants treated them the same way. 37 Last of all, he sent his son to them. ‘They will respect my son,’ he said. 38 “But when the tenants saw the son, they said to each other, ‘This is the heir. Come, let’s kill him and take his inheritance.’ 39 So they took him and threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. 40 “Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those tenants?” 41 “He will bring those wretches to a wretched end,” they replied, “and he will rent the vineyard to other tenants, who will give him his share of the crop at harvest time.” 42 Jesus said to them, “Have you never read in the Scriptures: “‘The stone the builders rejected has become the cornerstone; the Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes’? 43 “Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit. 44 Anyone who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces; anyone on whom it falls will be crushed.” 45 When the chief priests and the Pharisees heard Jesus’ parables, they knew he was talking about them. 46 They looked for a way to arrest him, but they were afraid of the crowd because the people held that he was a prophet.
Matthew 21:33-46

Prayer

Loving Father! We have brought all of our situations before You. You have been guiding us in various ways, so please admit us.

Every time we prostrate ourselves before the holy presence of the solemn Father, we feel that we are inadequate. Therefore, Father of compassion, please govern the entirety of this hour. By constantly dwelling in each of our hearts, allow us to live within the will of God.

Father, we earnestly wish that You will allow us to relinquish our evil minds and to follow and harmonize with the original mind that the heavenly nature seeks. Let us be the sacrifice that will become the root of original nature.

We are exhausted from fighting with the sin of darkness for one week. Father of compassion, please appear and hold onto us. Teach us lessons, and by advising us, guide us to climb over the ridge of death and dash toward a clear goal regarding the will. We earnestly hope that the Father will rejoice about this and be with us.

Beloved Father! Please manage every detail of the many children who have gathered here this hour. Beloved Father, we earnestly hope that the Father will sanctify everything about each of us in this hour. By eliminating all the conditions that You do not want, we pray that You will let us have purified minds and bodies and bring joy to You. Allow us to become a group of the whole who can serve You and bow to You.

Father! We feel awe-stricken before the toilsome will of the Father who has called us. Father, please look down upon us with compassion. Father, we desire with utmost sincerity that only You will become our friend, that only You will believe in us, with the result that You will allow us to become beautiful sons and daughters who can demonstrate our full loyalty before the eternal will.

Father! We have fallen prostrate before the grace of the Father who has strained to gather us like this. Please vividly manifest what You will.

Father, You are working hard to realize the will of the dispensation. We sincerely wish that You will allow us to become lovely sons and daughters who can console Your loneliness; to become sons and daughters who can put everything aside to fight and dash forward only for the sake of the will of the Father.

Please give blessings upon the countless altars that are gathering on behalf of this people today. Please reveal the grace of joy upon all these people and the countless altars that represent these people. May this people relate with the will You have commanded with a single, true heart. By doing so, beloved Father, we hope sincerely that You will allow them, as Your chosen people and Your chosen religious group, to fully accomplish the responsibility entrusted to the 2.4 billion people of the world in the last days. Though we may have all kinds of personal situations, Father, please allow us to report everything to the Father and follow in obedience.

We are trying to offer bows to the Father this hour. Let the Holy Trinity operate over everyone and rule each of their minds and bodies. Father, we earnestly wish that You will not let us be in the position to relate with the will of the Father according to our whims. Please let this be the hour when we can be in harmony before the entire will of the Father through the inspirations of the sacred spirit. Father, please be with the members who are spread out in the countryside at this hour. Please allow us to fulfill the victorious will, the will that the Father has established, as the grace of joy.

We have entrusted everything this hour. Therefore, earnestly hoping that the Holy Trinity will govern us, we prayed in the name of the Lord. Amen.

Make the Tribe of Israel Following Heavenly Principles

2 Chron 18:17

16Then Micaiah answered, “I saw all Israel scattered on the hills like sheep without a shepherd, and theLord said, ‘These people have no master. Let each one go home in peace.’ ”

17The king of Israel said to Jehoshaphat, “Didn’t I tell you that he never prophesies anything good about me, but only bad?”

18Micaiah continued, “Therefore hear the word of the Lord: I saw the Lord sitting on his throne with all the multitudes of heaven standing on his right and on his left. 19And the Lord said, ‘Who will entice Ahab king of Israel into attacking Ramoth Gilead and going to his death there?’

Don’t Be Washed Away by the Judgment

Habbukuk 3

13You came out to deliver your people,

to save your anointed one.

You crushed the leader of the land of wickedness,

you stripped him from head to foot.

14With his own spear you pierced his head

when his warriors stormed out to scatter us,

gloating as though about to devour

the wretched who were in hiding.

15You trampled the sea with your horses,

churning the great water

Exodus 2

15When Pharaoh heard of this, he tried to kill Moses, but Moses fled from Pharaoh and went to live in Midian, where he sat down by a well. 16Now a priest of Midian had seven daughters, and they came to draw water and fill the troughs to water their father’s flock. 17Some shepherds came along and drove them away, but Moses got up and came to their rescue and watered their flock.

18When the girls returned to Reuel their father, he asked them, “Why have you returned so early today?”

19They answered, “An Egyptian rescued us from the shepherds. He even drew water for us and watered the flock.”

20“And where is he?” Reuel asked his daughters. “Why did you leave him? Invite him to have something to eat.”

21Moses agreed to stay with the man, who gave his daughter Zipporah to Moses in marriage. 22Zipporah gave birth to a son, and Moses named him Gershom,c saying, “I have become a foreigner in a foreign land.”

Why Does the Lord Have to Come Back?

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
May 26, 1957

What kind of standard of life did Jesus, who came to fulfill the will of God, set? Jesus set the standard of life that abandons everything that was not the will. Therefore, you must also set the standard of faith, that can give up all of your ideals and desires or any condition of the world that is not in accordance with the will.

Today, what do you have that you think are the best? However, if that is not proven in heaven as something good for eternity, then it cannot truly become a good thing. Therefore, to possess things that will also remain valuable in heaven, on earth you must give up all that is not a part of the will.

You should be able to relinquish any habit that is not in line with heavenly principles. Even if everyone calls you a bad name and curses at you, you should become sons and daughters who put their life on the line and walk the path of God’s will, just like Jesus who walked the road of Golgotha on his own. You, who are walking the road of the will, one day will experience being abandoned. You must be ready for that. Because the world is a world of sin, and it is the principle that in the place where this world of sin agrees the relations of heavenly principle can never begin, you who are walking the path of the will must forsake this world of sin. Similarly, while traveling the short cut to Heaven after agreeing with the laws of heaven, there is the historical pass of tears, the historical road of Golgotha, and the world level road of Golgotha.

We who have embarked upon this road, must be able to maintain a hopeful heart, and even if we are rejected by the world, church and family we should think that it is persecution and mockery that substitute the 6,000-year history.

You who have gathered here unlike others, please do not mourn over the fact that there is persecution. Even when you are crying, you should not cry while you are thinking only about yourself. Instead, you should be able to pray, “To alleviate the resentment of Jesus and resolve the sorrow of Jesus on the world level, I will not hesitate to go toward any kind of position of suffering.” You also should be able to pray, “I will not hesitate even to embrace a miserable position on the world level, or even death! For this task, I will forsake all of my desires!”

If you cannot discover a new self who can cross over the pass of human ethics and connect with the laws of heavenly principles, in other words, if you cannot become people who can faithfully manifest, through your body and mind, the heart of God which represents the glory of resurrection, and put it into action, then you cannot be restored as the people who have perfected God’s ideals of creation, the original people who have nurtured the original nature. The greater the mission you have received from heaven, the greater the fight against the evil world that you must take on. You, who have gathered here today, should not try to fathom the eternal heavenly laws with your current concepts of faith. In the same way that the Jewish people, who longed so earnestly for the Messiah that comes in place of the heavenly laws, could not receive Jesus who came as Messiah, if you set the standard of eternal ideal with the Judaic-type of faith and the Jewish doctrinal perspectives centered on the Pentateuch of Moses, and become rigid, then without you being conscious of it, you will fall into the abyss of death. Therefore, you must take to heart the words of Jesus, “Those who love their father and mother more than me are not acceptable, and those who love their sons and daughters more than me are not acceptable” (Matthew 10:37).

If Jesus did not walk the road of Golgotha during some thirty-odd years of his life course, but only took care of himself, then the dispensation of restoration of God could not be carried out. Then, what kind of time is today, the time of the judgment of the last days? The period today is the same type of period as that of Sodom and Gomorrah in which Lot lived. Therefore, today when we are at the last period of history, you must entrust everything in heaven and live according to the commands of heaven. Otherwise, you will find yourself in the same position as the wife of Lot who has been washed away by the judgment on Sodom and Gomorrah.

Moreover, you must not take the same position as the believers of Judaism or those Jewish people who turned against Jesus. You also must not yield to Satan, even for one moment, and never forget that even in this moment the decisive fight over life and death is unfolding.
