God Shows the Example of Loving

Section 2. We Should Fully
Understand the Words “True
There is a term cherished in our Uni-
fication Church. Some of you might be
hearing it for the first time; it is the term
“True Parents.” We say, Our True Par-
ents! Did Jesus have True Parents? We
have something that Jesus did not. Did
Jesus have True Parents? Are not parents
responsible when they do not protect
their children? Parents ought to protect
their children. They must be a protective
barrier against Satan and say to their
children, “Be happy in our embrace.”
Did Jesus have that experience? For his
entire life Jesus grew up and was treated
as a stepson. This is why the Bible does
not contain the words true parents. It
does not contain the words true parents
or true brothers and sisters. These words
are a part of our Unification Church
terminology. They are not something I
invented. They are words discovered to
be part of the heavenly Principle. We
use the words true parents and true
children. We should understand how
true children should act. True chil-
dren should be able to offer their lives
and everything they have for the sake of
God’s Son and should be grateful even if
they themselves end up in hell. Without
going through such a process, nothing
can be accomplished. In this way, you
can return to the Father through having
the heart of true children. (76-73, 1975.1.26)

You cannot eat without God’s love in
the spirit world. You do not have a right
to eat. You have to realize that hell is a
place where you watch but cannot eat,
and know but cannot act. Therefore, you
should know that only those who have
made substantial the core value that can
unite the spiritual and physical worlds
based on God’s love, and who have expe-
rienced the life of heaven on earth with
their mind and body united, can take
ownership in the eternal ideal world of
the Kingdom of Heaven. (91-173, 1977.2.6)

Let Us Possess the Everlasting Love of the Father

Matthew 22: 34-40

Today you exert enormous efforts through religion, seeking the infinite world of being. Why do you fail to find it? Why are you unable to recognize the world? From the standpoint of relationship, it is because the motivation and purpose deviate and you cannot make a relationship with the resulting value. All entities, individual, family, national, country and world, have their own wishes and purposes in their own situations. When the purpose of an entity differs from the heavenly purpose, it can hardly feel the eternal world of being. Heaven helps humankind feel this world through religion, not through intellectual conditions. This world is felt through ultimate emotional issues by holding up the standard of love.

Thus, God comes to us only with love, and we can meet God only with love. You must first know that God has been trying infinitely to reach out to us, giving hope to those without hope, giving life to those without life, and giving love to those who cannot be loved. You should know that God thinks of us before we think of Him. He existed before we existed and moves for us before we move. You should feel in your hearts that a Being exists who is greater than the value of our existence, ideal and affection, and He moves before we do. Continue reading “God Shows the Example of Loving”

We Must Know God’s Love Intimately

Cheon Seong Gyeong 139

2.2. God has been miserable
throughout history
How enraged God is when He looks
down on us on earth! All human beings
should have had His lineage, but Satan
pushes them into a miserable state and
scornfully jeers at God saying, “Your
descendants are miserable.” When
Satan asks God, “How will You, with
all Your omniscience and omnipotence,
redeem this difficult situation?” God can
only be silent. He has to pretend to be
deaf though He can hear, pretend not to
smell though He can smell, and pretend
not to feel though He can feel. Have you
ever thought about the misery of God
throughout history? (183-19, 1988.10.29)

Job 16

16 Job said:

I have often heard this,
    and it offers no comfort.
So why don’t you keep quiet?
    What’s bothering you?
If I were in your place,
it would be easy to criticize
    or to give advice.
But I would offer hope
    and comfort instead.

Matthew 22: 34-40

What must finally be explained to everyone through science, philosophy, history and religion? It is the common problem of history, the current age and the future. This is also a problem for God. You should know that the cosmic value of your life and whether you can be proud of it depends upon whether you can establish the standard in your life of an inseparable relationship with God in which you move with God and halt with God.
