Jesus’ Determination

CSG 2183

Devoted children are people who love
their parents and children. The first page
is love, the process is love, and the final
page is love. The family cannot become
the core. Above the family there must be
a nation, and its core is the way of the
loyal patriot. What does that mean? It
means loving your nation. Loyal patri-
ots, saints, and holy sons and daughters
are the core; but what kind of core are
they all based on? Humankind has not
known that the core, the essence, is love;
it has never been explained clearly. All
of this means that the stable point upon
which we can settle in these Last Days
and in the future is nothing other than
Owing to this, spouses must love
each other in order to become children
of filial piety. You can become loyal
patriots after becoming people of filial
to love the family that channels love’s
life force. The way of loyal patriots is to
give love based on the life force of the
nation. The way of saints is to connect
love to the life force of the world. In this
light, the human moral concepts which
have been taught in the past become
clear. You have to know that this is the
right way. It is the way of saints to love
the world. This has set the standard of
human moral education, and now you
understand the correctness of such edu-
cation. (111-173, 1981.2.15)

You have the responsibility to reach
the land of Israel with your family. Just
as the twelve tribes of Israel had to go
to their assigned areas in the land, you
are to march forward to take your fam-
ily and find the land of your inheritance
for your tribe. (35-302, 1970.10.30)

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.

Proverbs 6:3

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.

Our Determination Must Reflect God’s

John 13

“You will never wash my feet!” Peter replied.

“If I don’t wash you,” Jesus told him, “you don’t really belong to me.”


18 Israel[g] will be a fire,
and Edom will be straw
    going up in flames.
The Lord has spoken!

Flee From Immorality

CSG 2272

We know only too well that their
failure laid the ground for the bitter
anguish of a sad history. Through the
Fall we became distanced from God’s
laws, lost our true selves and trampled
upon God’s heart. And so, to recover
our true selves and the world of heart,
we have been groping to find our way
back through the course of restoration
according to the Word.
Fallen humankind fell to a position
more evil than that of any other form
of creation, a sorrowful position where-
in we cannot freely communicate with
God. Human beings cannot recover
from this fallen state on their own, so
God has enlightened them as He carried
out the history of re-creation. You should
know that by passing through the posi-
tions of servant, adopted son and son,
victorious dominion was attained and
that even the position of the True Par-
ents was restored. (14-239, 1965.1.1)

Jeremiah 31

33 Here is the new agreement that I, the Lord, will make with the people of Israel:

“I will write my laws
    on their hearts and minds.
I will be their God,
    and they will be my people.

34 “No longer will they have to teach one another to obey me. I, the Lord, promise that all of them will obey me, ordinary people and rulers alike. I will forgive their sins and forget the evil things they have done.”

Become on Object to God; Deny the Body

CSG p 333

As an omniscient, omnipotent, and
omnipresent being, there is nothing
God does not have and there is noth-
ing He wants to keep back for Himself.
Although He has everything, if there is
something He wants to present and be
proud of as being more precious than all,
what would that be? God needs only love,
and nothing except love. There is noth-
ing He needs but love. (108-223, 1980.10.16)

CSG p. 1502

The ideal family is the place where
the parents, children, husband and
wife, and brothers and sisters desire to
unite into oneness based on true love.
From such a place the eternal global
equalization begins, and consequently,
the God’s Kingdom on earth, followed
automatically by God’s Kingdom in
heaven. (300-226, 1999.3.14)
