Do you think God does not see you
making love? It is all out in the open. It
is open for the universe to see. It is very
wrong to be unaware of this fact. Your
ancestors are watching from the spirit
world; they can see it as if it is taking
place right before their eyes, like on the
palm of their hands. Therefore it is very
wrong to think making love is embar-
rassing. (250-244, 1993.10.15)
Richard: Of course, the love relationship has to be between husband and wife.

The holy wine must be sprinkled
over all nations. Isn’t it true that one is
revitalized when given the holy wine?
The liberation of the fallen realm will
be expedited. Even all creation needs to
receive the holy wine. Then everything
would return to the side of God. There-
fore, the holy wine should be sprayed
across the whole world from an airplane
flying overhead, and if not the whole
world then at least the major cities,
accompanied with prayers. You need to
understand how powerful the prayers of
the True Parents can be. If they were to
ask for a certain nation to be destroyed,
it would perish. (298-232, 1999.1.8)

When we examine the sixty-six books of the Bible, we find that St. Paul spoke about this issue. By believing in Jesus, who passed away with no relationship with sin, we can receive the benefit of being adopted sons. However, this was not the ultimate purpose for which Jesus came.
God’s intention in sending Jesus was that humanity be connected to God’s true son, Jesus, and that they be engrafted onto him. Jesus said in the Bible, “I am the vine and you are the branches.” In this way, God intended to have the people living in the satanic world (who are not His children) pass through the stage of being His adopted sons and eventually become His direct children. Yet, because the people of his time did not believe, Jesus could not teach them how to become God’s direct children. He was able to explain only how to become His adopted children.
Why do we await the coming Lord? Why does humanity in Heaven and on earth await the day of Jesus’ return? No matter how great one may be, everyone is at most an adopted son of God. Christ is to return with the mission of establishing the relationship of the heart with which people can become God’s direct children. Hence, it is only natural that all people in Heaven and earth would await that day. We should understand Jesus, who came with this mission.
What kind of day is the day of the Second Advent to those of us who are awaiting the day of the returning Lord? We cherish the idea of the bride and struggle to realize that purpose. That day is a day when God can reveal all the tribulations He has gone through during the past six thousand years; a day when He forgets all the sorrows and sufferings of the six thousand years. When God beholds His son whom He has been seeking so ardently, all His sorrows, suffering and grief will disappear. He will be able to say, “My son, welcome.” That is the day Heaven has waited for and humanity on the earth has yearned for throughout the long course of history.
We can emerge as the masters of creation, the masters of the true garden that God blessed Adam and Eve with before their Fall, when we step beyond the limit of being adopted children and come forward with the authority to claim the position of God’s direct children. Then we can claim that the Father’s Kingdom of Heaven is our own Kingdom of Heaven and that we can govern the world that the Father governs.
Even if we were to govern all things in creation, if we lack some quality through which we can connect with them, they will be unwilling to be ruled by us. True sons and daughters should be able to alleviate all the historical bitterness. For this reason it is written in the Bible, “The creation awaits the day when God’s sons will appear.” The creation does not want those who are not recognized as true sons and daughters. Thus, today we must persevere through the course to remove all of Heaven’s sorrows and bitter grief.
