1 Corinthians 16
13 Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.14 Do everything in love.
1 Some time later, Jesus went up to Jerusalem for one of the Jewish festivals. 2 Now there is in Jerusalem near the Sheep Gate a pool, which in Aramaic is called Bethesda and which is surrounded by five covered colonnades. 3 Here a great number of disabled people used to lie—the blind, the lame, the paralyzed.  5 One who was there had been an invalid for thirty-eight years. 6 When Jesus saw him lying there and learned that he had been in this condition for a long time, he asked him, “Do you want to get well?”
7 “Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.”
8 Then Jesus said to him, “Get up! Pick up your mat and walk.” 9 At once the man was cured; he picked up his mat and walked.
The Sorrowful Heart of Jesus as He Went to the Mountain

Matthew 17: 1-8
For whom did Jesus come to the earth? Although he came for the sake of history, the age, the nation and the church, his path was full of pathos. Since he knew that his sorrow would not end simply as his own, but would be expanded as the sorrow of history, the age and the future, he was consumed with anxiety.
For this reason, Jesus went to the garden of Gethsemane. We should be able to feel sadness about this matter. The place where Jesus, the Savior of all people and the King of Kings, shared his final sorrow was not in the home of a disciple. It was not in a Jewish church nor a palace of the Jewish state. The place to which he went to decide everything in consultation with God was the garden of Gethsemane, where there were no visitors that late night. We should know this.

Parents need to get permission from
the grandfather before sending their
grandson anywhere. Parents cannot
simply do whatever they want. This is
because the grandfather stands in the
position of God. (107-326, 1980.6.8)

What are we trying to achieve? We
want to be registered in the positions of
sons and daughters who can be loved
eternally by God and True Parents. The
registration will begin from this time
forth. You will be registered in the Book
of Life of the Kingdom of God. A new
form of registration should take place
based on the true parent-centered ideol-
ogy and Godism, and at the same time,
the organization of tribes should also
take place. Similar to the twelve apostles
of Jesus and the twelve tribes of Israel,
we also need to organize ourselves into
tribes. (146-230, 1986.7.1)
Richard: This process has begin with the “Cosmic True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humanity Cheon Il Guk Book of Life Registration Blessing” that occurred on Feb. 28, 2018: https://youtu.be/tUi0dEZvadE
Let Us Seek and Establish the Blessed Land God Wants to Administer
Rev. Sun Myung Moon
December 14, 1958
God does not exist higher than the cosmos. No created thing can achieve completion without having a connection with God. When we build a house, we must link up all the materials and have them relate to each other to be a complete house.
Now we must seek God’s and Jesus’ mind and Shim Jung in the 66 volumes of the Bible. Only when we get to know God’s and Jesus’ mind and Shim Jung can we know our minds and Shim Jung. Yet God’s and Jesus’ mind and Shim Jung are not completely manifested in the Bible. It is written in the Bible that the Kingdom of Heaven is in your mind. Yet how many people are there who can indeed say, “The Kingdom of Heaven is in me”?
Where are such people? There are many people who have memorized good scriptural passages, wonderful, celebrated verses. Yet in order for us to know Jesus’ mind and Shim Jung, we must know why Jesus, the Savior of all humankind and the True Father of all human beings, grieved on this earth. What caused him to grieve the most? We must know these things. Only when we know these things can we say we have come to know Jesus’ mind and Shim Jung. We must know what the most unjust, vexatious, and painful thing was to Jesus, and the reason for it. Continue reading “We Must Know God’s and Jesus’ Shimjung”
