The Messiah Comes as the True Parent

Cheon Seong Gyeong 205

    What is it that you desire? You want to be people of the heavenly kingdom or children of the heavenly kingdom. This must be your desire. If you become people and children of the heavenly kingdom, the heavenly kingdom will naturally appear.
    Then, what kind of world is the heavenly kingdom? Is it a democratic world? Democracy is a means and a transitional ideology to make regime change easier when the Lord comes. When the Lord appears on earth, all the people of the world must follow him. The people as a whole must go before the Lord. Then, this would be convenient for organizing all the nations of the world into one nation.
    But democracy cannot unify the world. The experiment is already over. Can America itself lead the world? America itself is doomed. So the question is how to save America and guide it to govern the world. If this is God’s will, it has to be handled through the philosophy of the Unification Church, “Rev. Moonism.” Until this happens, there is no way for America to survive, and the bridge to the heavenly kingdom cannot be built by the American people.

Richard:  Rev. Moon clearly teaches about God’s will, and very specifically about absolute sexual ethics.  These teachings, and especially the movement for absolute sexual ethics, should have been taken up by all families, and especially by Christian leaders and churches.  With this teaching, there is no confusion about whether homosexuality is right or wrong.  It is clearly against God’s ideal of creation.
    But overall, people did not listen.  Instead, we have seen a steady decline of sexual moral values, and moral values in general.  Homosexuality was made ‘the law of the land’ through the ridiculous Obergefell decision
    Justice Samuel Alito wrote in his dissent

“If a bare majority of Justices can invent a new right and impose that right on the rest of the country, the only real limit on what future majorities will be able to do is their own sense of what those with political power and cultural influence are willing to tolerate. Even enthusiastic supporters of same-sex marriage should worry about the scope of the power that today’s majority claims.”

    When we embrace goodness, and particularly absolute sexual ethics, as taught by Rev. Moon, then we will become God’s children who are in line with His will and heart.  Then this nation will be saved, not any other way.

Now that the vertical and horizontal eight-stage indemnity has all been completed, the Ceremony of the Settlement of the Eight Stages could be performed 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 ideology centered on the Heavenly Father” at the same place. The ideology centered on the Heavenly Father is simultaneously 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)

True Parents
Chapter 1

What is a true parent?

Section 5. What Is a True Parent?

5.1. The two tablets of stone and True Parents

    When God led the Israelites out of Egypt there was a pillar of fire and a pillar of cloud. The pillar of cloud led them during the day and the pillar of fire led them at night. What did they signify? They represented a man and a woman and showed, symbolically, that in the Last Days parents would come and that the Israelites would serve them. Those who did not follow the pillar of fire and pillar of cloud would all perish. The Israelites wandered around aimlessly in the wilderness for forty years. Out of concern that they would perish, God called Moses to Mount Sinai. He had him fast for forty days and gave him two tablets of stone. They symbolized Adam and Eve – that is, True Parents. Why were the two tablets of stone placed in the Ark of the Covenant? The two tablets of stone symbolized Adam and Eve as the central figures who could complete the work of God’s will. This is why they were placed in the Ark of the Covenant. (134-172, 1985.4.7) Continue reading “The Messiah Comes as the True Parent”

Should Homosexuals Take the Lead to Justify their Lifestyle?

    What are you going to do in the heavenly spirit world? You will sing songs of love and speak words of love. In the spirit world, if you are spoken to in a melodious operatic way, you should respond to that person in the same operatic way. If you are spoken to through the medium of dance, you should dance back in response. You will rejoice eternally and never get tired of dancing. When dancing begins in one part of heaven, the entire Kingdom of Heaven will begin to dance. When singing begins in one part of heaven, everyone will begin to sing. Brothers, you will dance with your beloved wives.
    If you should dance with another man’s wife, you would say to her, “I am dancing with you in order to love my beloved wife a hundred times more than you.” You would think like that. If you should ever dance holding hands with another man’s wife, you would do so for the purpose of making love with your own wife in a way that is a thousand or ten thousand times more stimulating than that. (107-331, 1980.6.8)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1188

As viewed from God’s original ideal of creation, the eldest son should come from God’s side and, of course, the second son should also come from God’s side. Due to the Fall, the position of the first son was taken by Satan, and the position of the second son went to God. This has to be made right. Thus, when we consider the story of Esau and Jacob in the Bible, Jacob united with his mother and received her help. He gave Esau the pottage of lentils and bread in exchange for the birthright of the firstborn son. Until today, we could not understand why Bible history is the way it is. With the appearance of the Unification Church, its meaning was clarified for the first time. (134-304, 1985.8.16)

Owner of Peace, Owner of Lineage

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
July 7, 2009

What kind of city is Chicago? While others may fight, the people of Chicago work diligently and shed sweat. They tend to their cattle and farms, and they feed the people of the east coast and the west coast. It’s important to know this. At the same time, Chicago was the main origin of the Mafia and is where many sins originated. In Korean, the word “Chicago” sounds like an expression that means, You worked diligently and completed all the work, but you need to continue working diligently and establish everything.

Chicago feeds the East and West coasts and sustains them. Yet what happened? Rice is cheap, and the price of fish is controlled by the government and does not rise, so food is not hard to afford. One would expect that if the consumers on the East and West coasts live well, then the farmers in the central area should be able to live even better than they, but instead Chicago has become poor and it is left guarding the outhouse that smells like feces. Will they sit still for this? I have to take control of the East and West coasts, where people live well, and of the Eastern and Western worlds, the worlds of the white people and of the yellow people.

When the people who live in Chicago gained power, they took the food and everything else they produced and exported it. They sold it to the Soviet Union and to China, Now, however, because they taught everything to the farmers of Russia and China, what does America do with the rice and meat that it used to sell to nations around the world? They won’t buy it any more.

Places like Brazil and Argentina produce their own meat, so what do they need of meat from Chicago? The people of South America won’t buy it for fear of mad cow disease. Recently, there’s swine flu from pigs, threatening an epidemic that no amount of money can avert. The swine flu virus mutates and creates more viruses. If a more virulent virus were to appear and spread throughout the air, humanity could be destroyed in a short lime. If the virus were to spread throughout the earth’s atmosphere, everyone would die overnight.

In this frightening world that teeters on the verge of self-destruction, how can married couples expect to live long and grow old happily? Fallen people in the United States have become ring-leaders of lust. Is it alright that today homosexuals are taking the lead in this country, merely to justify their lifestyle?

These people hate Rev. Moon the most. “Rev. Moon is our enemy!” they say. “He is the chief of those who block the legalization of homosexual marriage. Therefore, we won’t let him continue.”

If my original idea had been to establish a world based on the unity between then-president George Bush and Kofi Annan, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, suppose this represented the unity between Cain and Abel? Imagine that one night a question had been posed to these two men in front of all 6.5 billion people of the world: “Is the teaching of Godism true or false?” What if they were to answer, “It is true,” on the world stage?

After that, the U.S. and the U.N. and Russia and China could unite as Cain and Abel should have. Within this scenario, the realm of Sabbath centered on the Parents UN, would have been proclaimed at the Universal Peace Federation convention at the Peace Palace.

What is this year’s motto? The Era of Proclaiming the Victory of the Authority of Absolute Sexual Ethics, True Love, True Life, and True Lineage in the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath of the Parents of Heaven and Earth. It is supposed to be fulfilled by August 15th this year. Are we there already?

To establish three stages with George Bush, George W. Bush, and Jeb Bush, the Bush family should have become one through the three stages of formation, growth, perfection. Then that family should have become one with the world of black people represented by Mr. Obama.

The Peace Kingdom comes together in the name of True Parents! The solar and the lunar calendars cannot exist apart from each other. A thirteenth month should be added to the existing twelve months of the lunar calendar to deal with the problem of the shortage of days. The lunar calendar enjoys the advantage of being the origin of the number thirteen. There is no such provision in the solar calendar to stretch from the existing twelve months to the number thirteen. The lunar calendar is able to adjust its whole structure for the sake of a smaller entity. If the number twelve does not match, the counting is adjusted to accommodate for an additional thirteenth month. It exemplifies the fact that a minority element should be able to overcome and digest the larger whole. We can overcome and digest all satanic people and families at once, in one bite.

Free Sex, Homosexuality, the Lesbian Movement and the Like Destroy Human Rights and Dignity

Cheon Seong Gyeong 2262

    During the three years from 1970, we even mobilized the 777 Couples, didn’t we? Didn’t you do the same? This was worldwide. We mobilized them in order to undergo hardships for the sake of the nation during the three years. What this means is that there is no family on earth, representing the nation or the world, who can be a match for the families of the Unification Church. Every family must become like the families in the Unification Church. How we were criticized during those three years! Since their mothers and fathers opposed them, the couples wrapped their babies in blankets and left them on the doorsteps of their parents’ houses at night, before setting out. Why did they have to do that? It was because they had to set the condition that they loved their nation more than their own sons and daughters.
    In order to raise them as true children, you will need to do as God did in the Garden of Eden after He created Adam and Eve. You must embrace your children, protect them, and be joyful. Do not let them go the same course as descendants of the Fall. You will need to offer utmost devotion, take responsibility to prepare everything, and make certain that all the necessary content is there so that they may be blessed by God. If you form such families, your children will be sons and daughters of God’s Kingdom. (158-272, 1967.12.29)

In order to do so, some of them even left their children in orphanages. Some husbands split up with their wives. After blessing them, instead of letting them live happily ever after, I made them throw away what little they had in their households, even pots and pans, and turned them out of their own homes. I did all this, so that the Blessed Families of the Unification Church from various tribes could go out to the nation as representatives of their tribes and restore them through indemnity.


4. Homosexuality—the Extreme of Free Sex

You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination.
    Leviticus 18.22

The bodhisattva does not approach the five kinds of unmanly men in order to be friendly with or close to them.
    Lotus Sutra 14 (Buddhism)

And Lot said to his people, “You commit lewdness, such as no people in creation ever committed before you. Do you indeed come in unto males?”
    Qur’an 29.28-29

God gave them up to dishonorable passions. Their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural, and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in their own persons the due penalty for their error.
    Romans 1.26-27

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

Free sex, homosexuality, the lesbian movement and the like destroy human rights and dignity. (Way of Unification
Free sex is what Satan likes most. God is the opposite. God wants ‘absolute sex.’ Archangels do not have partners—that is why homosexuality and lesbianism has emerged. With God, on the other hand, there is absolute partnership.
    Now is the Last Days, when we are harvesting the seeds of free sex that Adam and Eve sowed in the Garden of Eden. That is why free sex is rampant throughout the whole world, especially in America. That is why families are breaking down. These are the satanic fruits of the Last Days. In this world full of free sex, people say, “It’s okay for men to marry each other” because they do not have an absolute partner of love. (282:27, February 16, 1997)
Satan has worked to break down the basis for lasting love; hence free sex, homosexuality and lesbianism are rampant. Homosexuality and lesbianism grew from the seeds of the archangel; that is why they do not have eternal love partners. Satan is making people around the world expose their bodies more and pulling them in the direction of death. Humanity is experiencing its ultimate fate as descendants of the archangel, who instigates death to all. (279:121, August 1, 1996)
Could homosexuality exist in a world that abides by Heaven’s principles? Lesbianism, alcoholism and such exist because people suffer from emotional misalignment. They suffer in this world, which is hell on earth. We, on the other hand, strive to live in God’s Kingdom, so our way of life is 180 degrees different from them. (243:191, January 10, 1993)
If you practiced homosexuality before joining the Unification Church and you have still not ended such relationships, you will go straight to hell. Once you are deeply moved by the truth, everything of that old lifestyle should flee away. You have been born again. Now, no matter how much you formerly enjoyed it, your heart says no. Therefore, you have nothing to do with it. If you cannot subjugate those feelings, you should repent and pray and wail with tears. (219:233, September 8, 1991)

Make Haste in Doing Good

Listen to the Richard Urban Show #24:

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1794

As America has become the archangel nation in the Last Days, its women will not be qualified to be women. Hence, homosexuals and lesbians arise and say, “Let women marry each other. Let men marry each other!” The archangel does not acknowledge a complementary partnership. He does not recognize the right of ownership. He does not acknowledge heterosexuality. That is why everything has become like that. The reality of America today is that while opposing homosexuality on the one hand, it must present the way it should go honestly before God on the other. Issues like lesbianism, homosexuality, and family breakdown must be resolved completely. (240-155, 1992.12.11)
According to the US Statistics Bureau, the soaring divorce rate showed a threefold rise between 1970 and 1990, with the conclusion that one family out of six has a divorce, and the reality is that nationwide, thirty percent of children are being raised by single parents. Furthermore, the strange, decadent phenomenon of gay married couples is spreading. (288-197, 1997.11.28)
Immorality, sexual misconduct and decadent trends, along with hedonism, are systematically ruining families. It has come to the point where some people of today think that gay people can also build a different type of family alongside the traditional family, and that they can have children through adoption or artificial insemination. (288-171, 1997.11.27)
Richard:  For the first time ever, I got exactly the same Rheama two days in a row.  I have added the next two paragraphs, also.  
We will soon be initiating a Dividing Line workshop that teaches the peace philosophy of Godism taught by Rev. Sun Myung Moon.  This will directly address the topic of moral and family breakdown emphasized above.  Contact us if you would like to assist in this effort.

Mary, who had to deceive Joseph and her family in this way, based on the principle of restoration through indemnity, should have been stoned to death according to the law of that time. Although she should have been stoned to death, Jesus, who had already been conceived, had to be protected, so God conveyed a message to Joseph; “Joseph!…Do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit.”(Matt.1:20) Joseph had no choice but to bring Mary into his house. (139-305, 1986.1.31)

Cultivating the Good

2. Good Leads to More Good, while Neglecting the Good Leads to Evil

Make haste in doing good; check your mind from evil; for the mind of him who is slow in doing meritorious actions delights in evil.
Dhammapada 116 (Buddhism)
Run to do even a slight precept, and flee from transgression; for precept draws precept in its train, and transgression, transgression; for the recompense of a precept is a precept, and the recompense of a transgression is a transgression.
    Mishnah, Avot 4.2 (Judaism)
Do not disregard evil, saying, “It will not come nigh unto me”: by the falling of drops even a water jar is filled; likewise the fool, gathering little by little, fills himself with evil.
Do not disregard merit, saying “It will not come nigh unto me”: by the falling of drops of water even a water jar is filled; likewise the wise man, gathering little by little, fills himself with good.
    Dhammapada 121-22 (Buddhism)
For to him who has will more be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away.
    Matthew 13.12
Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin.
    John 8.34
Black goats must be caught early, before it is dark.
    Igala Proverb (African Traditional Religions)
He who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies without attending to it, and truths without the world’s believing him.
    Thomas Jefferson
Mencius said to Kau Tzu, “A trail through the mountains, if used, becomes a path in a short time, but, if unused, becomes blocked by grass in an equally short time. Now your heart is blocked by grass.”
    Mencius VII.B.21 (Confucianism)
It will be as when a man going on a journey called his servants and entrusted to them his property; to one he gave five talents, to another two, to another one, to each according to his ability. Then he went away. He who had received the five talents went at once and traded with them; and he made five talents more. So also, he who had the two talents made two talents more. But he who had received the one talent went and dug in the ground and hid his master’s money. Now after a long time the master of those servants came and settled accounts with them. And he who had received five talents came forward, bringing five talents more, saying, “Master, you delivered to me five talents; here I have made five talents more.” His master said to him, “Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of your master.” And he also who had the two talents came forward, saying, “Master, you delivered to me two talents; here I have made two talents more.” His master said to him, “Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much, enter into the joy of your master.” He also who had received one talent came forward, saying, “Master, I knew you to be a hard man, reaping where you did not sow, and gathering where you did not winnow; so I was afraid, and I went and hid your talent in the ground. Here you have what is yours.” But his master answered him, “You wicked and slothful servant! You knew that I reap where I have not sowed, and gather where I have not winnowed? Then you ought to have invested my money with the bankers, and at my coming I should have received what was my own with interest. So take the talent from him, and give it to him who has the ten talents. For to every one who has will more be given, and he will have abundance; but from him who has not, even what he has will be taken away. And cast the worthless servant into the outer darkness; there men will weep and gnash their teeth.”
    Matthew 25.14-30: Parable of the Talents
If good does not accumulate, it is not enough to make a name for a man. If evil does not accumulate, it is not enough to destroy a man. Therefore the inferior man thinks to himself, “Goodness in small things has no value,” and so neglects it. He thinks, “Small sins do no harm,” and so does not give them up. Thus his sins accumulate until they can no longer be covered up, and his guilt becomes so great that it can no longer be wiped out. In the I Ching it is said, “His neck is fastened in the wooden cangue, so that his ears are hidden. Misfortune.”\
    I Ching, Great Commentary 2.5.7-8 (Confucianism)
