Jesus Came to Fulfill the Ideal

Cheon Seong Gyeong 223

Do you have a sovereign nation? We
are people without a nation. Although
we have a country called the Repub-
lic of Korea, the nation we are moving
towards is a different nation. It is God’s
nation. However, you cannot enter this
heavenly nation without receiving cer-
tified citizenship in that nation. Satan
cannot accuse those with certified citi-
zenship, regardless of whether they are
from the East, West, North or South; or
whether in the past, the present or the
future. Without such a citizenship, you
cannot enter the heavenly nation. (148-
288, 1986.10.25)

Throughout all of history, there has
never been such a thing as registration
into the Kingdom of God. In fact, there
was no Kingdom of God in the spir-
it world. There was no family and no
nation there. Once a family passed on
to the spirit world, that family was sep-
arated; if there were ten members in a
family, all ten of them were separated.
However, that will not be the case from
now on. You must understand that, had
it not been for the Fall, the Kingdom of
Heaven would have been a place where
the whole family, the mother and father
and all the others, would have entered
together. If the grandparents, mother
and father, and sons and daughters unit-
ed together centering on true love, and
cherished the true love of God in that
family, even God Himself would show
absolute obedience to them. In a world
motivated by the love for others, where
one is obedient to such a tradition of love
and where people live for the sake of oth-
ers, the base of peace can come into exis-
tence. (210-354, 1990.12.27)

The Ideal Kingdom of Heaven, Our Hope

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
February 22, 1959

Matthew 3: 1-17

What I want to ask you today is: where is the ideology that can re- create people, the ideology which can break down historical adherence to old habits that humankind has not been able to escape, the ideology which can burn like a shock in the human heart? If there is a God, can He introduce this ideology to us without any condition? Have you ever thought about this? If you have not, you are a shameful sinner in the presence of your ancestors, who longed and fought for the ideal garden, the ideal world.

Jesus was pierced with his Shim Jung toward Heaven. He felt deeply about the new ideal world of creation, the world of hope humankind was to find. He acted according to what he felt and said to us, “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.”

In what kind of surroundings did Jesus act in accordance with the heavenly shock he felt? All people were supposed to agree with each other and welcome Jesus wherever he went, but no one welcomed him. This was true, not only at that time, but even now, numerous people who live and who have lived in history, innumerable spirit persons in the spiritual world, also have not deeply understood the words that Jesus spoke and Jesus’ responsibility. None have welcomed Jesus. Continue reading “Jesus Came to Fulfill the Ideal”
