Home Church Is The Base Of The Kingdom Of Heaven

Happy True God’s Day!
Enjoy the special reading below for the holy day, and have a great holiday!

The year of 1979 is finally over. The year of 1980 has dawned with great hope and glory. In 1980 we can find a very important number, eight. As we learn in the Divine Principle, the number eight denotes a new beginning and new hope. The Unification Church just welcomed the 1980’s. Now what is the goal and direction of our movement? This year our job is to undertake substantially the home church providence.

From the providential point of view, the third seven-year course would have been turned entirely into the home church crusade. The goal and slogan I gave on the first day of 1979 was “Home Church and the Completion of the Kingdom of Heaven.” The new slogan for 1980 is “Home Church is the Base of the Kingdom of Heaven.”

This slogan shows us that without home church the Kingdom of Heaven cannot become a reality. What kind of Kingdom of Heaven are we talking about? The Kingdom of Heaven is where there is rest and Sabbath, where there is true joy and happiness. When you take that rest do you do it all by yourself? You want to enter the kingdom together with your wife, with your children and parents, with your tribe, your nation and the world. No matter how much you are longing and ready to take Sabbath, if your parents are not in a position to take Sabbath with you, or your wife or children, then certainly you cannot very well take rest. In the Unification Church you are proud of having True Parents. If you are serving them but they are not in a position to take rest or have peace then would you take a rest all by yourself?

Does God Really Exist?

Cheon Seong Gyeong 2037

If we lose America, even if we lose the entire earth, but you hold on to true love, God becomes yours, heaven becomes yours, and the even the earth automatically become yours. Is that conclusion wrong or right? Then, what are you worried about? Even if you say, “Man, I hate Home Church,” it is just a bunch of noise. With true love, the more difficult it is, the greater its value. (104-151, 1979.4.29)

To work hard in your Home Church while you are living on earth is a blessing. Life is short. (142-297, 1986.3.13)
Richard: Home Church is a service ministry to 360 (or more) contiguous homes in your neighborhood. It is the ‘launching pad’ for the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1071

You should offer a prayer of gratitude even if you are strongly chastised by your husband, saying, “How can I expect my husband never to reprimand me? Thank you.” (27-88, 1969.11.26)

Richard: Below, we begin our study of the entire Cheon Seong Gyeong, published in 2006.

Selections from the Speeches of Rev. Sun Myung Moon
True God
Chapter 1

The Original Being of God

Section 1. God is the Incorporeal Subject Partner

1.1 The Incorporeal God

    God is without form. If we should conceive of Him as large, He is infinitely large, and if we should conceive of Him as small, He is infinitely small. (35-156, 1970.10.13)

    Does God really exist? Can God be felt as more real than the pain that makes you say “ouch” when someone pinches you, or more real than the experience of eating when you are hungry? This is the question. When we know that God truly exists, all problems will be solved. (89-72, 1976.7.11) Continue reading “Does God Really Exist?”

Will You Go to the Kingdom of Heaven by Yourselves?

Happy 26th Anniversary to those Blessed at the 3.6 million couples Blessing at RFK Stadium in Washington DC on November 29th, 1997!

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1187

The Ceremony of the Settlement of the Eight Stages signifies that the historical course of vertical indemnity and the course of horizontal indemnity that went through the stages of individual, family, people, nation, and the world. That is the vertical and horizontal courses consisting of eight stages are completed. Due to this, the right of eldest son has been restored, and the course of indemnity for all humanity is abolished. That is what I have done by holding this ceremony. The right of the eldest son is restored; the Parents are embracing all humankind. Thus, an end is brought to the history of war and struggle that was necessary in order for the right of the eldest son to be restored in the realm of parental love. The time has come when indemnity is not needed and we can reach harmony in love. In order to achieve this, I had to hold the Ceremony of the Settlement of the Eight Stages. By holding this ceremony, the Parents forgave both the elder and the younger son, so that next we can enter the age of the realm of forgiveness for the fallen parents. (193-173, 1989.10.3)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1848

If there are no fish where you go fishing, you should make a fish farm and raise fish. The time has come when you can farm fish, transport them somewhere and then go fishing. If you make a fish farm somewhere with the right climate and temperature and raise fish, then you can take any type of fish anywhere and place them where people can catch them. You can transport them in a boat, release them and catch them again. The time will come when you can hunt animals – even tigers. You can breed wolves and release them in the hunting grounds to hunt them. You can hunt for bears. You can also breed other animals for hunting. (275-104, 1995.11.3)

Family Pledge

Rev. Sun Myung Moon

Pledge Number 6: Our family, the owner of Cheon Il Guk, pledges to become a family that moves heavenly fortune by embodying God and True Parents, and to perfect a family that conveys Heaven’s blessing to our community, by centering on true love.

What is Family Pledge number six? It states: “Our family pledges to become a family that moves heavenly fortune by embodying God and True Parents, and to perfect a family that conveys Heaven’s blessing to our community, by centering on true love.” You should understand what the True Parents have done and become a family that embodies them; just as heavenly fortune follows the True Parents around when they move, you should unite completely with them and become families that move heavenly fortune and convey God’s blessings to your communities. You cannot do it by yourselves alone. You should create families like yours around you. You are pledging to be such a central family. (267-153, 1995.1.4)

Salvation Is Not Completely Accomplished by Believing in Jesus

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1281

Through True Father, the wife is bequeathed the mission of a mother towards her husband. What this means is that the wife must love in a way that allows her to give birth to her husband in three stages. In order to set the condition for her giving birth through love, the act of loving must be carried out in the opposite way from how it was done in the past. The woman is in the upper position and the man is in the lower position. You should keep this in mind in the act of love. (90-134, 1976.10.21)

Richard: This refers specifically tot he Three Day Ceremony, which is part of the process of receiving the Marriage Blessing, which reverses the Fall of Man.

Cheon Seong Gyeong 581

We live in this world, yet it is not the only world that exists. There is also the spirit world. This world and the spirit world should not be two separate worlds; they should be integrated.

(Completion, Conclusion and Finalization of the Providence of Restoration Through Indemnity)

God’s Providence of Restoration

    True Father declared a providential jubilee year in 2007, and after establishing King Garden in Hawaii, Father proclaimed the start of the dawning of a new civilization from that location.
    The Peace Messages (Pyeong Hwa Shin Gyeong) were bequeathed in 2007, as well.  The providential headquarters was moved from Hawaii to Las Vegas, Nevada.
    Father proclaimed 2008 as another Jubilee year.  Father proclaimed and started the Woli Boncheron (Original Root Substance of the Divine Principle) education on October 10, 2008.  On January 1, 2010, the Heavenly Calendar started, and Foundation Day, January 13 (lunar) 2013 was announced.  Absolute Sexual Ethics education (OSDP Education) was to continue up until Foundation Day.  However, it was discontinued after True Father’s ascension to the spirit world, which resulted in Foundation Day not being carried out according to God’s desire.
    Our families must attend the True Parent (True Father) and form the Abel Clan
Federation through conducting Wolli Boncheron Absolute Sex Education, then conduct
Wolli Boncheron Absolute Sex (Absolute Sexual Ethics) Education  programs for Cain clans, bless them with the Marriage Blessing, and find and establish God’s homeland through home church.
Each family must bring to completion hoondok home churches that practice an active
hoondok life in attendance to God and the True Parent.
   Salvation is not completely accomplished by believing in Jesus. One must receive
substantial salvation in both spirit and flesh through the blessing of the True Parent. Of
those who believe in Jesus, none have yet entered into the Kingdom of Heaven.
    Home Church has to be accomplished.  This is a ministry to 360 or more contiguous homes.  Each family in the Home Church should study the Eight Great Textbooks.

The Fruit that Adam and Eve Ate is Love

#129-Sliding IS Deciding

Cheon Seong Gyeong 2022

Home Church is the place where families begin to be liberated on an international level. It is the place where we can declare the starting point of the ideal love and ideal life of unfallen Adam and Eve. To fulfill this, I have initiated the tribal messiah mission. Jesus came to find a family. You have all heard of Home Church, right? The tribe of Cain and the tribe of Abel must become one. In terms of Jesus, Joseph’s tribe and John the Baptist’s tribe should have become one and formed one family. When the family is set up in this way, Satan cannot invade. If the original standard of the family is set up, embracing all tribes, then the failed family in Israel can be restored to an unfallen standard for the first time. Tribal messiahs and Jesus will witness this. (235-111, 1992.8.29)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1218

You must stand in a position more earnest than life. That is why even when you are hungry, you should still pray. Even while fasting, you must invest yourself. You must invest God’s love and the power of your life into all the nations. As you do so, God will never answer your questions, and He will pretend that He does not see what you are doing. God cannot interfere. He will not interfere until your investment is complete. What is the human portion of responsibility? It means attaining completion on your own, doesn’t it? Similarly, when you go forward with prayer, God does not interfere. It is really strange, but God sometimes even opposes you. (180-195, 1988.8.22)
Richard: This shows the importance of the human portion of responsibility, which God does not interfere with.
