Daniel 5

Daniel answered:

Your Majesty, I will read the writing and tell you what it means. But you may keep your gifts or give them to someone else. 18 Sir, the Most High God made your father a great and powerful man and brought him much honor and glory. 19 God did such great things for him that people of all nations and races shook with fear.

Your father had the power of life or death over everyone, and he could honor or ruin anyone he chose. 20 But when he became proud and stubborn, his glorious kingdom was taken from him. 21 His mind became like that of an animal, and he was forced to stay away from people and live with wild donkeys. Your father ate grass like an ox, and he slept outside where his body was soaked with dew. He was forced to do this until he learned that the Most High God rules all kingdoms on earth and chooses their kings.

Ezekiel 46

At all other festivals and celebrations, twenty pounds of grain will be offered with a bull, and twenty pounds will be offered with a ram. The worshipers can offer as much grain as they want with each lamb. Four quarts of olive oil must be offered with every twenty pounds of grain.

12 If the ruler voluntarily offers a sacrifice to please me or to ask my blessing, the east gate of the inner courtyard will be opened for him. He will offer his sacrifices just as he does on each Sabbath; then he will leave, and the gate will be closed.

13 Each morning a year-old lamb that has nothing wrong with it must be offered as a sacrifice to please me. 14 Along with it, three pounds of fine flour mixed with a quart of olive oil must be offered as a grain sacrifice. This law will never change— 15 the lamb, the flour, and the olive oil will be offered to me every morning for all time.

CSG 191

For True Parents to appear, there
must be true sons and daughters, and
in order for true sons and daughters
to appear, there must be true servants.
This is why when we look at the course
of God’s history of restoration, we can
see that God has been working so that
we can receive the day of true parents
after we have gone through the servant’s
age and the children’s age. Furthermore,
those in the spirit world have been help-
ing as we pass through and restore the
age of the servant, the age of the adopt-
ed son, and the age of the children, and
move up to the age of the parents.

CSG 1263

The Fall occurred through the wrong-
ful marriage in the Garden of Eden.
Now the time has come for True Par-
ents to overturn this by marrying peo-
ple in the right way. The True Parents
will solve the trouble caused by the Fall.
Through them, hell can be eliminated
and the millions and billions of ances-
tors in the spirit world can be blessed in
holy matrimony. Through the founda-
tion of the families of descendants on
earth, centering on true love, they and
their ancestors in the spirit world can
unite into one vertically. Through these
family foundations, East and West will
be connected.

Not only do we see racial discrimina-
tion, but even within the family we can
also find discord and disunity between
husband and wife and between par-
ents and children. The people of good-
ness are struggling with those who are
evil. Considering the current situation
of the world, it can easily be discerned
that the coming Lord must unite the
world into one, making it a place with
no racial discrimination and no barriers
between nations. He must reunite all the
broken families and establish a kingdom
of peace in this world, where even now
as we speak, goodness is in conflict with
evil. (53-72, 1972.2.9)

Numbers 3

The Lord said to Moses:

Assign the Levi tribe to Aaron the priest. They will be his assistants and will work at the sacred tent for him and for all the Israelites. The Levites will serve the community by being responsible for the furnishings of the tent. They are assigned to help Aaron and his sons, 10 who have been appointed to be priests. Anyone else who tries to perform the duties of a priest must be put to death.

11-13 Moses, I have chosen these Levites from all Israel, and they will belong to me in a special way. When I killed the first-born sons of the Egyptians, I decided that the first-born sons in every Israelite family and the first-born males of their flocks and herds would be mine.[c] But now I accept these Levites in place of the first-born sons of the Israelites.

Ezra 8

Artaxerxes was king of Persia when I[a] led the following chiefs of the family groups from Babylonia to Jerusalem:

2-14 Gershom of the Phinehas family;
Daniel of the Ithamar family;
Hattush son of Shecaniah of the David family;
Zechariah and 150 other men of the Parosh family, who had family records;
Eliehoenai son of Zerahiah with 200 men of the Pahath Moab family;
Shecaniah son of Jahaziel with 300 men of the Zattu family;[b]
Ebed son of Jonathan with 50 men of the Adin family;
Jeshaiah son of Athaliah with 70 men of the Elam family;
Zebadiah son of Michael with 80 men of the Shephatiah family;
Obadiah son of Jehiel with 218 men of the Joab family;
Shelomith son of Josiphiah with 160 men of the Bani family;[c]
Zechariah son of Bebai with 28 men of the Bebai family;
Johanan son of Hakkatan with 110 men of the Azgad family;
Eliphelet, Jeuel, and Shemaiah who returned sometime later with 60 men of the Adonikam family;
Uthai and Zaccur with 70 men of the Bigvai family.

Ruth 1

Then she told them, “Don’t call me Naomi any longer! Call me Mara,[e]because God has made my life bitter. 21 I had everything when I left, but the Lord has brought me back with nothing. How can you still call me Naomi, when God has turned against me and made my life so hard?”

Richard:  In life, many times we don’t know when something is positive or negative in the long run.  We could ask “is this good or is this bad?”.  On face value, it might be bad, but it good be good in the long run.  We just don’t know (at least for some time we won’t realize it).  The story of Naomi’s and her daughter Ruth is such a story.  It’s better to have a grateful attitude even if things seem difficult.

Isaiah 22

When all of this happened,
the Lord All-Powerful told you
    to weep and mourn,
    to shave your heads,
    and wear sackcloth.
13 But instead, you celebrated
by feasting on beef and lamb
    and by drinking wine,
because you said,
“Let’s eat and drink!
    Tomorrow we may die.”

14 The Lord All-Powerful
has spoken to me
    this solemn promise:
“I won’t forgive them for this,
    not as long as they live.”

Israel, your pride

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.

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-
