There Are Certain Boundaries We Are Not Allowed to Cross

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)

Rectify Yourself to Walk the Path of Goodness

You have entered the global age and
although you may be in an individual
position, you are connected to the great-
est saints of the world. If you have the
character of heart and live a saintly life,
you will have the spiritual foundation
through which spirits will freely assist
you when needed. So now, with respect
to the current activities of the Unifica-
tion Church, the patriots of each nation
have returned to their previous coun-
tries on earth and set up homesteads
around the foundation of the Unifica-
tion Church. Until now, the number of
people who died is tens or hundreds of
times greater than the current popula-
tion of the nation, is it not? They have
come and are now waiting for us to
expand our work. This is why all mis-
sionaries should lead national move-
ments and mobilize everyone. If they
give the order to march forward togeth-
er with the spirit world and on behalf of
everyone, these spirits cannot but help.

We should offer sacrifices to God
with a theoretical system and practical
foundation with which we can subjugate
the spirit world. This ceremony of sacri-
fice was today’s morning pledge service
(November 17, 1990, the 31st Children’s
Day). In that place, I prayed that since
the time had come, the current that had
been flowing in reverse through heaven
and earth must now flow in the right
direction. Since God has restored the
birthright of the firstborn, all second
sons to be born in the future and those
existing now are under His rule. Conse-
quently, in the era of the second son after
the restoration of the birthright of the
firstborn, heavenly law cannot condone
the devil’s sphere of activities.

Let Us Love Heaven and Become Patriots

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
March 1, 1959

Matthew 5: 33-48

Goodness is never realized by one’s self. It is realized when one transcends one’s self, one’s environment, nation and world and connects with the highest goodness of the Creator. Goodness is possible only through a course of accomplishment.

We must understand that we should find the direction of goodness, understand its destination, and move in that direction. At the same time, we must become goodness itself and leave behind the accomplishments of a good life. It is not an overstatement to say that no one in history has ever understood this truth and led his life responsibly and confidently. God has worked laboriously with human beings. For 6,000 years God has been guiding human beings, who do not know how to repay His work and who are not grateful for His having saved their lives.

If this course of historical sorrow does not end in your generation, it will continue with your descendants. If you cannot feel that this sorrowful course is active in your life, flowing within the life you breathe, there is no way you can truly say that you love your nation and Heaven.
