Hometown Is Where You Are Tied Up by Love

#143-Conflicts of Interest Corrupt Our Government

The family is an encapsulation of history. It is connected to history, with its origin in God. You inherit the family vertically. However, inheritance must take place in a perfectly vertical manner, at a ninety degree angle. The grandfather and grandmother, representing God, have already inherited this. (216-262, 1991.4.7)

How complicated do you all think the sexual organs are? In terms of their structural development and shape, the sexual organs for sparrows, buntings and wagtails are identical. Well then, what would come from the mating of a sparrow and a wagtail? Is that even possible? The rascals, they are talking about things they have no knowledge of. If I were to argue with them, after exchanging a few words they would be struggling to give answers. Those scoundrels! Females and males! If we were to say that everything developed from the amoeba, how can we explain the existence of females and males, convex and concave? Why is it that all things are made in such a way that they can only reproduce by giving and receiving through these organs? Who determined that? Was it the evolutionists? They do not realize that formation of the origin of life, the internal energy, takes place through the unified foundation of male and female life forms, and is so great that it goes beyond the universal view. There are forty-seven differences between monkeys and human beings, or so I have heard. If the two were to mate, could they have offspring? When I posed this question to the communists in my schooldays, none of them could give me an answer! I could go on telling you hundreds of such stories, but there is not enough time. Such nonsense is unacceptable. (198-24, 1990.1.25)

True Family Gateway to Heaven
Rev. Sun Myung Moon

Chapter Two

The Family Is the Model for the
Kingdom of Heaven

Section 7. The Family is Our Eternal Original

Family, the family is a good place. Why is it good? It is a good
place because my mother and father are there. It is a good place
because my elder sister and elder brother are there. It is a good
place because my younger brother and younger sister are there,
and it is a good place because my relatives are there. Thus, human
beings feel nostalgia for their hometown and the land of their
original hometown. They feel more deeply about their hometown
than they do for the nation. The place you long for even when you
live in the Republic of Korea is your hometown.

What place do you long for even though you like Korea, even
though you want to live in Korea, and even while you are living in
Korea? It is your hometown. Hometown, what kind of place is
your hometown? It is a place where your heart is lifted up in four
directions and three dimensions. What is that heart? It is a place
where you are tied up by love. Upward, your mother and father
are tying you up; left and right, the bond between husband and
wife is tying you up; downward, your sons and daughters and
relatives are tying you up tight with three dimensional love. This
is the original hometown.

People cannot help but long for their original hometown because
they look upon this starting point of happiness based on love as
the best. Then, what kind of place do you think God’s original
hometown is? What do you think God’s land of original
hometown is on this earth? We should think about these
questions. If God is the God of love, He must surely have prepared
a starting point for living on this earth, and where is this starting
point? To know this, we must understand how God has prepared
that starting point. What kind of place can become the starting
point of the original hometown where God’s family can be
created? It is none other than a place where a son dwells who
understands God as his real father. In other words, it is a place
where the son, the only-begotten son who can monopolize God’s
love, exists. Also it is a place where such a daughter dwells. It is a
place where such a son and a daughter marry and form a complete
family. (23-151, 1969.5.18)

Then who should be in the original hometown? Those who you
miss should be there. Your parents should be there and your
brothers and sisters should be there. And those who you long to
meet should be there. When you want to live with them there,
would you be satisfied if you just saw them for a moment? Would
you be satisfied if you met and just saw them for a short time?
When meeting and living with them, you should not be tired even
if you live with them for eternity. You should go and find such a
place. This is the Kingdom of Heaven that today’s religions
pursue. (23-80, 1969.5.11)

Today, the reason we long for the land of our original hometown
is that in that hometown there are parents, brothers and sisters,
and relatives, who are closer to us than anyone else. They always
guide us; they welcome us as they did in the past whenever we
visit them, and they sympathize with us, console us and receive us
with joy when we are having difficulties. Without this welcome
though, even if you longed for your original hometown and
returned there, your desperate longing heart would vanish, and
you would go back with feelings of deep regret. You should know
this. In the original hometown there have to be people who will
welcome you. (23-80, 1969.5.11)

With the heart of proclaiming the fact that the path of the cross God trod for His children has been miserable, you must stand in the position in which you are able to say, “Father, please don’t suffer anymore. Father, please don’t worry about me anymore!” Don’t you think this is the face of the filial child who can stand before God, our Parent, who has been agonizing sorrowfully until now? When I think of it this way, I realize the fact that we, today, have been too brazen and arrogant before God. (31-35, 1970.4.12)

Why do you have to fulfill the responsibility of tribal messiah? The first reason is that you must save your parents. Your parents are in the position of the first Adam, and you are in the position of the second Adam. You must complete the mission of Adam by restoring and re-creating your parents. The second reason is that you need a hometown. By completing the responsibility of tribal messiah, you will be able to have your own hometown.
Ultimately, the reason for fulfilling your portion of responsibility as a tribal messiah is the perfection of Adam’s family. In real terms, you have to educate your tribe. (244-211, 1993.2.7)

Separation from the World

  1. Not Conforming to the Ways of the World

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

If you still carry relationships with the self-centered, fallen world, you cannot walk the way of God’s purpose and Will. (21:102, November 17, 1968)

The secular world covets wealth, knowledge and power as the most important things. However, these three things cannot connect you to God. What connects you to God? True love. (270:308, July 23, 1995)

Up until the present, you have lived
as you please. Now things are serious,
however. You are responsible for whether
you are losers or winners. That responsi-
bility does not lie with me, but with you.
Will you return to your hometown with
the title of loser or with the victory of
a winner? Which one is it? You should
return with the victorious foundation
of God and True Parents. With this you
can advance to your hometown. Because
your hometown is the world condensed
and because it is a reflection of my fam-
ily, you should think of God’s and True
Parents’ history of indemnity as you
work to fulfill your responsibility, and
you should tearfully welcome the people
who come to you. When someone visits,
you should have such a heart that you
can talk with him all night without ever
tiring. (178-116, 1988.6.1)

The spiritual standard of the growth
stage has been established on the nation-
al level. In establishing the global stan-
dard, since the spiritual foundation of
Christianity works as the global founda-
tion, the substantial global standard had
to be connected to the Christian cultural
sphere. To do this, I went to the United
States and carried out revival activities
nationwide. Wherever I went, I was wel-
comed. In this manner, I connected all
this foundation in America to Korea as
the representative of the national stan-
dard. That was how I returned to Korea
victorious. (190-275, 1989.6.19)

The Path In Search of the Original Homeland Rev. Sun Myung Moon July 5, 1959

Luke 15: 11-32

11 Jesus also told them another story:

Once a man had two sons. 12 The younger son said to his father, “Give me my share of the property.” So the father divided his property between his two sons.

13 Not long after that, the younger son packed up everything he owned and left for a foreign country, where he wasted all his money in wild living. 14 He had spent everything, when a bad famine spread through that whole land. Soon he had nothing to eat.

15 He went to work for a man in that country, and the man sent him out to take care of his pigs.[a] 16 He would have been glad to eat what the pigs were eating,[b] but no one gave him a thing.

17 Finally, he came to his senses and said, “My father’s workers have plenty to eat, and here I am, starving to death! 18 I will go to my father and say to him, ‘Father, I have sinned against God in heaven and against you. 19 I am no longer good enough to be called your son. Treat me like one of your workers.’”

20 The younger son got up and started back to his father. But when he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt sorry for him. He ran to his son and hugged and kissed him.

21 The son said, “Father, I have sinned against God in heaven and against you. I am no longer good enough to be called your son.”

22 But his father said to the servants, “Hurry and bring the best clothes and put them on him. Give him a ring for his finger and sandals[c] for his feet. 23 Get the best calf and prepare it, so we can eat and celebrate. 24 This son of mine was dead, but has now come back to life. He was lost and has now been found.” And they began to celebrate.

25 The older son had been out in the field. But when he came near the house, he heard the music and dancing. 26 So he called one of the servants over and asked, “What’s going on here?”

27 The servant answered, “Your brother has come home safe and sound, and your father ordered us to kill the best calf.” 28 The older brother got so angry that he would not even go into the house.

His father came out and begged him to go in. 29 But he said to his father, “For years I have worked for you like a slave and have always obeyed you. But you have never even given me a little goat, so that I could give a dinner for my friends. 30 This other son of yours wasted your money on prostitutes. And now that he has come home, you ordered the best calf to be killed for a feast.”

31 His father replied, “My son, you are always with me, and everything I have is yours. 32 But we should be glad and celebrate! Your brother was dead, but he is now alive. He was lost and has now been found.”


Having struggled hard in the darkness, we have gathered once again this day, longing for the Father. Please enable our minds to abide with Yours now. Please enable our minds and bodies to move as one with You.

Heedless of Your own limitless toil, You endured much to accompany our ancestors throughout the different eras and centuries. We also know that You took many pains to open up a new path for our ancestors. Nevertheless, our ancestors trampled underfoot the meritorious deeds of Heaven, which were accomplished with such toil. They became shameful by causing Your heart concern. Please forgive them.

We have learned that the sins of our ancestors are a matter of great and lasting regret. We know that the rueful deeds of the Fall have caused countless human beings to fall into misery for six thousand years. We are afraid that we might inherit the wayward minds of our ancestors, who throughout history betrayed and grieved the heart of the Father. We are in the final days, when we must go over the hill of regret due to the Fall and tread down the bitter resentment our ancestors left behind. We must rise up. Please allow our minds to be stimulated by Your mind now. Father, I ardently wish and pray that You will allow us the hour of glory when our bodies can represent Yours.

Who is to make the tearful appeal, having harmonized with the Father’s heart? Who is to fight representing the Father’s situation? Countless people are living on this earth, and each person lives in their own respective style. However, there are very few people who know that the Father has been going through the history of sorrow again and again because there has been no region or person who could reciprocate with Him in the matters of the heart He keeps within His bosom. Since we now know this sorrowful and bitter inner heart of the Father, please let this be the hour when we relieve our minds and unburden ourselves, grafting everything onto Him.

Father, let this be the hour when we allow absolutely nothing of ourselves. Let us rejoice only where we have been grafted onto the Father. We cannot help but appeal to the Father with all our hearts now.

These humble people have knelt down this day in honor of the heavenly emotion. My Father, You who understand our pitiful situation, You who have accompanied us and fought in miserable circumstances for us, please receive us. We have prostrated ourselves before You with concentrated minds. We are aware that we must belong to You and be governed by You. That is why we have come forth, heedless of the long years we have toiled along life’s journey to attend You with our hearts and souls. That is why we have come, patiently scaling even the difficult and regrettable peak of danger.

Return to Your Hometown

Joshua 7

19 “Achan,” Joshua said, “the Lord God of Israel has decided that you are guilty. Is this true? Tell me what you did, and don’t try to hide anything.”

20 “It’s true,” Achan answered. “I sinned and disobeyed the Lord God of Israel. 21-22 While we were in Jericho, I saw a beautiful Babylonian robe, two hundred pieces of silver, and a gold bar that weighed the same as fifty pieces of gold. I wanted them for myself, so I took them. I dug a hole under my tent and hid the silver, the gold, and the robe.”

Joshua had some people run to Achan’s tent, where they found the silver, the gold, and the robe. 23 They brought them back and put them in front of the sacred chest, so Joshua and the rest of the Israelites could see them. 24 Then everyone took Achan and the things he had stolen to Trouble Valley.[f] They also took along his sons and daughters, his cattle, donkeys, and sheep, his tent, and everything else that belonged to him.

25 Joshua said, “Achan, you caused us a lot of trouble. Now the Lord is paying you back with the same kind of trouble.”

The people of Israel then stoned to death Achan and his family. They made a fire and burned the bodies, together with what Achan had stolen, and all his possessions. 26 They covered the remains with a big pile of rocks, which is still there. Then the Lord stopped being angry with Israel.

That’s how the place came to be called Trouble Valley.

Richard:  It is imperative that we always keep a clear conscience in all that we do, and that we inform our conscience by studying God’s Word every day.

Ezekiel 33

13 Suppose I promise good people that they will live, then later they start sinning and believe they will be saved by the good they did in the past. These people will certainly be put to death because of their sins. Their good deeds will be forgotten.

14 Suppose I warn wicked people that they will die because of their sins, and they stop sinning and start doing right. 15 For example, they need to return anything they have taken as security for a loan and anything they have stolen. Then if they stop doing evil and start obeying my Law, they will live. 16 Their past sins will be forgiven, and they will live because they have done right.

Richard:  This Rheama echoes the first one.  Wickedness will be exposed and dealt with.



July 28, 1991
Belvedere, Tarrytown, New York

So in July, I proclaimed that the free world, communist world, religious world, and political world are united into one. I proclaimed that the world of mind and the world of true love have sovereign power. We are going to clean up Satan’s world.

In the past you did not believe me. Now, take me seriously, for God is raising me up. No matter how strongly Satan’s power persecutes me, I am going up, and the other side is going down. Satan can longer push us around. No matter how difficult the situation, we must overcome the fall! Our sexual organ is supposed to be the palace of heaven and earth-the love palace, life palace, and blood lineage palace. Father won the eternal love, life and lineage tradition! This is our unification family system.

When the vertical King of Kings connects to the horizontal Parents, it is so powerful. The third Adam’s family is the central family eternally! Other families must receive their tradition and create one world culture. God’s grandsons and daughters, true Adam’s family, will be princes and princesses-that is you, humanity! True Parents centered on God, the King of Kings, are the royal family.

After the fall, many people wanted to become king. Every woman thought, “I want to occupy earth and heaven, including God.” Actually, God wants to give us the position of royalty, fulfilling those desires. But after the fall, kingship was lost. The original mind was still connected to God, like a magnet. It was hidden by Satan’s power, but when the absolute plus appears, it will pull all mankind’s original minds to it.
