Fallen Men Are in the Position of Archangels

The more you are persecuted, the more ideal and higher the place you will go to. When you arrive there, you will become a noble citizen of heaven. God will look down and say, “This is my beloved son!” Your five sensory organs will be enraptured with God’s love. The entire universe will bow its head and give praise to you. Such a world awaits you, as for the coming of a saint. That is our ultimate hope. Do you understand? (294-96, 1998.6.14)

Now everyone has to know about the Unification Church. It has become such a matter of common knowledge that those who are ignorant of it would be considered as having no common sense. It is true. People who haven’t heard of the Unification Church would be considered to be good-for-nothings. You will experience this all too well if you go abroad. If they ask you where you are from and you answer, “Korea!” they will automatically ask you, “What is this I hear about the 30,000-Couple wedding?” If you were not present at the ceremony, you should say at the very least, “I saw it on television.” If they ask you, “How was it?” you cannot just say, “It was magnificent!” and stop there. When they ask you, “So it was magnificent, but who was there?” you would have to describe to them every aspect of the ceremony, wouldn’t you? The same is true for me.


Women’s Rights

2. The Human Fall as the Cause of Male Domination

The man said, “The woman whom thou gavest to be with me, she gave me fruit of the tree, and I ate.” Then the Lord God said to the woman, “What is this that you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent beguiled me, and I ate.” The Lord God said… to the woman,
“I will greatly multiply your pain in childbearing; in pain you shall bring forth children,     yet your desire shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you.”

There Are Certain Boundaries We Are Not Allowed to Cross

Cheon Seong Gyeong 290

Kim Il-sung is the false father. North
Koreans call him their parent, do they
not? Why has he appeared at this time in
history? The person who is the most vil-
lainous in all the communist countries,
the greatest of all devils, will appear.
However, I am called the True Parent.
The True Parent should be able to sub-
jugate the false parent through natu-
ral surrender. He should not be struck
down by force. God’s providence of sal-
vation and God’s victory or defeat is not
determined by force. If force were to be
used, everything would be over imme-
diately. If the communists had had their
way, everything would be over. The
fallen world, which used to show off its
mighty armies that created such a his-
tory of strife in this earthly world, and
which passed down Satan’s tradition,
will have a miserable end.
God, who knows such things, is try-
ing to bring Satan to surrender natu-
rally. He tells him to do everything he
wants. After letting him do everything
he wants, Heaven will be hit first and
then it will take it all away, saying that
the one who struck the side of justice
must pay for all the damages. When
Satan arrives at the end of the world, he
will be left with nowhere to go. He will
surrender at the end of the world. God
cannot bring this to pass by Himself.
Rather, He has to prepare a person on
earth who can inherit this task. This is
why He sends the Messiah in the Last
Days. (210-231, 1990.12.23)

Richard: This is very good news. The devil has way overstepped his limits. That means, between all the COVID-19 supression of freedom, and now all the chaos and violence, and many other attacks on goodness, heaven’s side will be able to reclaim what has been lost.

Now that the vertical and horizon-
tal eight-stage indemnity has all been
completed, the Ceremony of the Settle-
ment of the Eight Stages could be per-
formed on August 31, 1989, in Alaska,
the most northerly location in the West.
It is the northernmost place. On the first
day of September, I declared “the ideol-
ogy centered on the Heavenly Father”
at the same place. The ideology cen-
tered on the Heavenly Father is simul-
taneously the ideology of salvation by
love as well as the ideology of parental
love. This parent-centered ideology is all
about a life lived by giving love. Satan
cannot oppose anything based on love.
If he cannot oppose the path taken by
the Unification Church, we can rapidly
expand worldwide. (199-157, 1990.2.16)

World Scripture and the Teachings of
Sun Myung Moon

Chapter 2

Truth and Universal Law

Beyond the Law

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

True love transcends the law. True love has such a privilege. Since we know this, we should practice it. If we do, then we will enjoy the unlimited freedom of the Kingdom of Heaven. (116:249, January 1, 1982)

When the mind and body become one, the universe is like putty in our hands. Since we become a microcosm of the universe, we can understand everything. We will not need anyone to teach us. No one will need to teach us how to live, or lay out rules of ethics and morality. Do the sparrows and the animals need lessons in morality? Animals know how to protect themselves and physiologically group themselves in their own species. Why are human beings, the lords of creation, so ignorant in this regard? It is because of the Human Fall. Because of the Fall, struggle and conflict came into existence. (162:223, April 12, 1987)

Moral laws spring from the mind. Those who live with a good mindset and do not suffer from a guilty conscience have no fear in anything. Even if they are dragged before the cruelest tyrant, they can stand tall before him. (19:288, March 10, 1968)

Goodness is something the universe protects and raises. It holds freedom and peace within it, accompanied by life and authority. There is nothing in heaven and earth that can subjugate goodness. When we are good, we are not afraid of anyone, even the president of a nation. No matter what laws are applied against us, we are not influenced. That is why secular laws cannot reach the standard of the conscience. Therefore, worldly laws cannot intrude upon the authority of goodness. (16:134, January 2, 1966)

Can you find anywhere in the world a constitution or law code that would condemn someone who sacrifices himself in service for others? Would a court of law convict him, declaring him a criminal? [No.] If such a law existed, it would be denounced as a bad law. Rather, the nation’s president would recognize and honor him. (105:93, September 30, 1979)

As Unification Church members, you may say, “I do not have any boundaries; I do not have to guard myself from anything; I am really free.” But this is not so. In our way of life there are certain boundaries we are not allowed to cross—for example, the line of the Fall. If we cross that line, inevitably our internal nature and status is changed and we are transferred to a different owner [from God to Satan]. (90:9, December 5, 1976)

God does everything according to a rule. In the natural sciences, people solve the mysteries of the universe using the formulas of mathematics. Since that is so, wouldn’t there be formulas in the world of love? Were there no formulas, there would be no way to govern the people streaming into the Kingdom from every corner of the world. (170:256, November 22, 1987)

My Position Before God is Important

Deuteronomy 3

11For only Og king of Bashan remained of the remnant of giants; behold, his bedstead was a bedstead of iron; is it not in Rabbath of the children of Ammon? nine cubits was the length thereof, and four cubits the breadth of it, after the cubit of a man.

Ezekiel 30

9In that day shall messengers go forth from me in ships to make the careless Ethiopians afraid, and great pain shall come upon them, as in the day of Egypt: for, lo, it cometh.

10Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also make the multitude of Egypt to cease by the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon.

11He and his people with him, the terrible of the nations, shall be brought to destroy the land: and they shall draw their swords against Egypt, and fill the land with the slain. Continue reading “My Position Before God is Important”
