Jesus Had to Remain Silent for 30 Years

If you have only one son or one
daughter and this only son dies, how
great will your pain as a parent be?
There is a saying that if the only son
of an only son for seven generations
dies, the entire neighborhood and sur-
rounding villages will mourn for him.
It is impossible to fathom the sorrow of
parents who have lost a seventh genera-
tion only child, therefore all the fam-
ilies in the area, all parents, children,
brothers and sisters will sympathize
with them. When we consider this, we
should reflect on the fact that Adam
and Eve were the only son and daugh-
ter for how many generations? For bil-
lions of generations!
Thus, the relationship of the Parent
and child were not consummated. God
lost the only son for billions of genera-
tions, so the only way to find that son
again is to overcome the pain lasting

for billions of generations. We have not
known that we have such a Heavenly
Parent. (301-100, 1999.4.20)

No matter how dirty the water, it
knows how to balance itself. People
should also know how to balance them-
selves. My coming here to Jardim does
not mean I have some special relation-
ship with Brazil. There are people living
here representing the five colors of differ-
ent races. Although I do not speak their
language, I do not think that they are a
different species. They are my kin – my
younger brothers and sisters. I am meet-
ing them again after living separately for
six thousand years. That is why they nat-
urally welcome me with joy, although we
do not share the same language, habits
and customs. (276-90, 1996.2.4)

The Incarnation of Jesus, A Pioneer

Sun Myung Moon
February 1, 1959

Matthew 8: 18-22

What then did Jesus do to cope with this mission? He passed through a preparation period. Jesus tried to connect the hearts of humanity to the heart of God, and tried to accomplish the ideology that could move the universe, Heaven and people. Jesus was determined to go forward in the shoes of a pioneer, causing unity between heaven and earth, humankind and the earth, the earth and God, and God and humankind. We have to understand that it took exceptional courage on Jesus’ part to make this resolution, in spite of the tragic situation with which he was faced. God raised Jesus for the sake of the chosen nation of Israel and for the sake of all the things of creation found on the earth. Hence, even if the earth was to betray him, he could not abandon his mission because the people were still there. Even if the people were to betray him, he could not abandon his mission because Heaven was still there. Continue reading “Jesus Had to Remain Silent for 30 Years”

The Incredible Determination of Jesus

CSG 2179

People of filial piety will think of
their parents first when something good
happens in their lives. In the fallen world
people think of their spouse first when
they see something good. However,
unless you buy something precious for
your parents first, you cannot buy some-
thing for your spouse.

CSG 1282

After the growth stage in the three-
day ceremony, the man is restored to
the upper position. That is why in mak-
ing love on the third occasion, the man
should be in the upper position. After
completing this, the husband and wife
should offer the prayer that they have
become an eternal husband and wife,
and an eternal family that belongs to
God and that is the heir of heaven. Only
then can they truly start their lives as
husband and wife. Only when that is
accomplished, can they boldly walk into
the Kingdom of God as a family com-
pletely restored through indemnity. It
is that difficult to achieve. Therefore, if
you do not know about this, it is impos-
sible for you to be restored. You cannot
be restored if you don’t know this. In the
world today, many churches claim that
they will go to the Kingdom of Heaven if
they believe in Jesus, but this is total non-
sense. They are not going to the King-
dom of Heaven but to paradise. Paradise
is the waiting room. (90-134, 1976.10.21)
