A true family is a place where the
husband loves and serves his wife as
he would his mother, the wife serves
and loves her husband as she would her
father, and they love each other as broth-
er and sister. The Kingdom of Heaven,
where ideal families live, is a place where
a husband and wife each love and respect
each other as they would God Himself.
Such a tradition should be established
on this earth. (Blessed Family – 924)

What way should you go? First you
are recognized by family members in
the satanic world, then by me. After that,
you go to God in the spirit world. That
is the way to go, by the way of the law.
Going that way is the right direction. If
there are any conditions for accusation,
they will join forces to accuse you in the
flesh. It will be a judgment of substance.
Will lies work in that situation? Doing
something unwillingly is like not doing
it at all. If you do it thinking of God and
Father, their essence will be embedded
inside your shell, like a fully mature
chestnut embedded inside the burr.
When you think of God and me dwell-
ing in your heart, my words and God’s
Word will become your core.
Unification Church members should
become people whom God, I, and other
members can welcome. So you must be
like the kernel of the chestnut when the
burr is cracked open. We should live for
God and True Parents. That is what you
are to do. If you wish to live for the sake
of God and True Parents after going to
the spirit world, your lifestyle on earth
should be in step with that kind of life.
That is how harmony is achieved.
Richard: Jesus said “Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”. There is a natural transition from life on earth to life in the spirit world.
Man Is an Explorer in Search of Truth
Rev. Sun Myung Moon
July 19, 1959
Human civilization has developed, following the flow of history. That civilization has now become this world of the twentieth century. Yet it has no contents whatsoever that can solve the problems of our bodies, minds and hearts. Although many complex structural appearances and complex environments have come about internally and externally, we know all too well that they have not touched our minds and hearts. People could not unite centering upon them. They were not the standard of heart Heaven and earth could rejoice eternally with or which could bring Heaven and earth together.
This age today is heading against the direction the mind and heart seek. Where can we find the center that can hold us up when we have nowhere to go and feel utter emptiness inside? Today’s humanity cannot help but struggle to find it. People are seeking for the heart that the mind and belief can be in touch with. Therefore, humanity cannot avoid struggling toward this if a certain standard is not established where the heart can dominate the body and the body and lifestyle can dominate external life.
If God exists, what world does He seek? It is not this world of civilization and culture that we see today. We should realize that the central will God desires is the standard of mind and heart that can lead civilization in the right direction. It is the world of the standard our ancestors sought to establish for all their descendants. Knowing this, Jesus avoided the worldly environment. We know that he lived a life of going deep into the woods or valleys in the darkness.
No one knew at the time that Jesus came to this world and fought to transfer good things of the invisible world into this visible world.
No one in this world wanted to be in Jesus’ position. Jesus prayed and pled at unexpected times. You have to realize that the course Jesus patiently walked was the course all of humanity has to traverse. It was the course that went into the borderland where God and Satan, good and evil, collided.
Jesus was not in a comfortable situation as he tearfully prayed in the Garden of Gethsemane. It was the borderline area where God and Satan met. That prayer was the moment he was about to cross the borderline in order to overcome the realm of sorrow, tribulation, pain and death. Jesus was connected to the one heart, even in that situation. Therefore, he had a standard within him that said, “This heart will never be violated,” in spite of anything on this earth and in Heaven that might sway him away.
It was not Jesus’ greatness as a person that allowed him to win over Satan in the process of the battle over providential conditions. It was because of his entrenched heart toward Heavenly Father. Even Satan has to throw up his hands in the presence of such a heart in fighting the battle of Heaven. Because Jesus was such a person, he became qualified to become the master of heart and the bridegroom all people admire. I know that Jesus did not come to this world to find anything. This world is a fallen world. This world still has to go over a certain hill, and it has much to resolve. The world and the age, which both have to be resolved, are the problem. Because Jesus knew the problem, he came to pioneer the path. Jesus came as the lone explorer representing humanity in the new world that has to be realized.
Although Jesus did not mention it in the words recorded in the Bible, he could not have established a center of victory in Satan’s world. God could not have established the will of victory in this satanic world at that time. You have to understand that Jesus was an adventurer and an explorer who sought the new world. He threw everything away to seek for the world of God’s love and humanity’s love, which is greater than any reality or concept of this world.
