Originally, when God as the Parent
created Adam and Eve, He reaped the
benefit of having children. At the same
time, He enabled the children to ben-
efit by having parents. God’s hope was
to raise His children to perfection. Had
this happened, it would be possible to
say that God would have harvested both
Adam and Eve.
Then, why do we need parents and
why do we need children? God is spir-
itual and human beings are physical.
The parent-child relationship is also like
this.
The invisible God bears fruit through
the visible child and then enters into the
heart of the child to reveal His value as
the visible God. The invisible God bears
fruit within the child’s heart and the
fruit of the child is then produced. It is
possible to transfer the fruit of the father
to the child. And thus, for God, both His
fruit and the parent’s fruit are produced.
They have equal value.
Then, why are parents and children
needed? Even though God possesses
love, He needs a partner to share His
love. We as children also need a partner
to share our love. This partner relation-
ship between parents and children is like
the relationship of heaven and earth. It is
a vertical relationship.

Lineage and ownership must be con-
verted to God’s side. Japan has inherited
Satan’s ownership. Adam must become
the master ahead of Satan. Before Adam
becomes the master, God must become
the owner. But God has not yet become
the owner. Adam has not become the
owner. In order to recover the owner-
ship that Eve lost, she must go out to the
world and put everything in order. That
is why ownership must be returned to
God’s side. In order to have that owner-
ship returned, it cannot be brought to
me directly. It must be brought through
my children, through Mother. It must be
done in reverse, the way it is done in res-
toration. (229-154, 1992.4.11)

THE WORLD WARS

4.1 THE PROVIDENTIAL CAUSES OF THE WORLD WARS

Wars break out due to such factors as conflicts of political and economic interests and clashes of ideology. Yet these are merely external causes. There are also internal causes of wars, just as there are internal and external motives for every human action.

What are the internal, providential causes of the world wars? First, the world wars have resulted from Satan’s last desperate struggle to preserve his sovereignty.

Second, the three world wars have occurred in order to fulfill the worldwide indemnity conditions to restore the three great blessings.

Third, the three world wars have occurred so that all humanity may overcome on the world level the three temptations by which Satan tempted Jesus.

Fourth, the world wars have taken place to fulfill the worldwide indemnity condition to restore God’s sovereignty.

4.2 THE FIRST WORLD WAR

4.2.1 SUMMARY OF THE PROVIDENCE IN THE FIRST WORLD WAR

In the political sphere, the First World War was a conflict between Abel-type democracies, which pursued the goal of the providence of restoration, and authoritarian states where Cain-type democratic ideals were thriving and which stood in opposition to the goals of the providence of restoration. It was fought between the imperialist nations on God’s side and the imperialist nations on Satan’s side. In the sphere of religion and ideology, the Cain-type nations included Turkey, a Muslim nation persecuting Christianity, and its allies, Germany and Austria-Hungary. They fought the Abel-type nations of Great Britain, the United States, France and Russia, which generally upheld Christianity. At the conclusion of the First World War, the Abel-type democracies had gained victory at the formation stage.

4.2.2 WHAT DECIDES GOD’S SIDE AND SATAN’S SIDE?

The question of which nations are on God’s side and which are on Satan’s side is decided based on the direction of God’s providence of restoration. Those who are in line with the direction of God’s providence or are acting in concert with that direction, even indirectly, are on the side of God, while those who take an opposing position are on the side of Satan.

In the First World War, the Allied Powers led by Great Britain, the United States, France and Russia were Christian nations; moreover, they had been fighting to liberate the Christians under persecution in Turkey. Thus, they stood on God’s side. On the other hand, Germany and Austria-Hungary, the leading Central Powers, supported Turkey, a Muslim nation which persecuted Christianity. Therefore, together with Turkey, they stood on Satan’s side.

4.2.3 THE PROVIDENTIAL CAUSES BEHIND THE FIRST WORLD WAR

What were the providential, internal causes of the First World War? The First World War had to take place, first, to fulfill the worldwide indemnity condition to restore God’s three great blessings at the formation stage. Second, the First World War took place in order to have people on God’s side collectively overcome Jesus’ first temptation on the world level. Third, the First World War took place in order to lay the formation-stage foundation for the restoration of God’s sovereignty.

4.2.4 THE PROVIDENTIAL RESULTS OF THE FIRST WORLD WAR

The victory of the Allied Powers in the First World War fulfilled the formation-stage indemnity condition to restore God’s three great blessings worldwide. By overcoming Jesus’ first temptation on the worldwide level, they fulfilled the indemnity condition to restore God’s first blessing worldwide. The victory of democracy also established the formation-stage foundation for the restoration of God’s sovereignty and laid the foundation for the birth of the returning Christ, who is destined to be the Lord of God’s world.

In conclusion, with the victory of God’s side in the First World War, the foundation was laid for the Second Advent of the Messiah. From that time, the formation stage of the dispensation of the Second Advent commenced.
