4 They pile heavy burdens on people’s shoulders and won’t lift a finger to help. 5 Everything they do is just to show off in front of others. They even make a big show of wearing Scripture verses on their foreheads and arms, and they wear big tassels for everyone to see. 6 They love the best seats at banquets and the front seats in the meeting places. 7 And when they are in the market, they like to have people greet them as their teachers.
8 But none of you should be called a teacher. You have only one teacher, and all of you are like brothers and sisters. 9 Don’t call anyone on earth your father. All of you have the same Father in heaven. 10 None of you should be called the leader. The Messiah is your only leader. 11 Whoever is the greatest should be the servant of the others. 12 If you put yourself above others, you will be put down. But if you humble yourself, you will be honored.
5 The Lord says:
I am furious! And I will use the king of Assyria as a club 6 to beat down you godless people. I am angry with you, and I will send him to attack you. He will take what he wants and walk on you like mud in the streets. 7 He has even bigger plans in mind, because he wants to destroy many nations.
Let Us Seek and Establish the Blessed Land God Wants to Administer
Rev. Sun Myung Moon
December 14, 1958
Because human beings fell, they lost their bodies, their minds and their spirits. Human history is the history of humankind wandering around seeking the restoration of these things and the place of rest. Having passed the stage of wandering in search of material things, history has now reached the stage where human beings seek the conscience. What is more, you must understand that the world is standing in a face-off between two camps divided by thought and doctrine.
Since we are in a position where we must go through the course of restoration, we must seek the ideology centered on the mind, rising above the ideology centered on material things. You must understand that this is a necessary concluding point in the course of human history.
What then must we do after finding the blessed land of the mind? We must find the eternal, blessed land of love. What is the one condition of victory that can endure until the very end on this earth? That is a doctrine based on a love that transcends the heavens and earth, a love that can stimulate a person’s mind and set the universe in motion as well. This universe will never be put in motion by any other force. You will understand, through your conscience, that even God is seeking an ideal world filled with such an ardent feeling of affection.

Your hope lies nowhere other than
in becoming the True Parents’ sons and
daughters of true filial piety. The True
Parents will become the king and queen
of all kings and queens under heaven.
Hence, this is the place where the cen-
ters of all hope – past, present and future
– can be brought to fruition. (46-167,
From the perspective of the Prin-
ciple, all forms of creation are to be
brought under dominion on the foun-
dation where true parental love has been
fulfilled; the most important question
therefore is whether you have definitely
fulfilled that love. (67-148, 1973.6.1)
For adopted children to advance to
the position of begotten children, the
jealousy the archangel felt at the time
of Adam and Eve must be indemnified.
To do this, spiritual children should
value and love the physical children of
their spiritual parents more than their
own lives. Next, they should restore
the satanic world. These are essential
points. What this means is that you can-
not enter unless you have loved my chil-
dren. Ask yourselves whether you loved
them from the time they were in the
womb. Have you loved me, God’s will
and the children of my body even more
than yourselves? The question is wheth-
er you loved them more than yourselves.
Jesus asked, “Did you love me more than
your own sons and daughters, your fam-
ily?” If you have not done so, you cannot
proceed, and should indemnify this fail-
ure for three years starting now. (127-128,
The course of restoration must go
through eight stages, restoring the indi-
vidual, family, tribe, people, nation,
world and heaven and earth, and restor-
ing the love of God. But, this cannot be
accomplished all at once. Had Adam and
Eve not fallen, they would have naturally
perfected themselves, but because they
fell to the level of servant of servants at
the beginning of history, we cannot be
raised up through all the stages at once.
Thus, in the process of pioneering each
stage, continuous indemnity condi-
tions were absolutely necessary for each
course. By setting up these conditions,
we can separate from Satan. Because of
Satan, indemnity conditions are neces-
sary; if Satan did not exist, indemnity
conditions would not be required. (161-204,

37On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink.
Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.
20But after he had considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream and said, “Joseph son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home as your wife, because what is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. 21She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” Continue reading “Follow Your Conscience Informed by the Word”
