Jesus said, “Worry not what you will
wear or what you will eat, for the Gen-
tiles seek after these. Seek ye first the
Kingdom of God, and His righteous-
ness.” As this shows, the central stream
of thought in the Bible is that kingdom.
This philosophy says to seek that nation.
It does not say to seek your own happi-
ness. If you are born as a citizen of that
nation and you have a husband, then
that husband represents that nation, so
you have to love that nation before you
can love your husband. And the wife
also represents the nation; you have to
love that nation before you can love your
wife. You have to be able to ask him or
her to die in the position of being able
to say, “I did everything I could; there
is nothing more I could have done.” It is
no good if you die having said, “I should
have tried such and such.” For this rea-
son, we are busy even though we may
have accomplished a certain amount.
Even if you walk a way on the path, you
have got to go even further. When every-
one else is sleeping, we have to go one
step further. “Hey Satan’s world! Take it
easy! You guys, rest the whole day if you
like! We are going off to seek that nation.”
That is what you have got to say.
Fellow compatriots, all you who seek
the unification of the North and South! I
especially want to say the mission of you
women is to restore the young men and
women, and the mission of the students
is to be true children through true edu-
cation. That is what you must do.
And beyond that, mothers and chil-
dren have to unite to set the standard, so
that the husbands can be raised and edu-
cated to be the true sons of Heaven. Then
following True Parents, and attending
God, restore the ideal of the Kingdom
of Heaven on Earth.
In closing, let me say that it is my
fervent hope that these words today will
help you build a nationwide movement
to bring closer the day when North and
South meet in true love.
May God’s blessing be with both you
and your families. Thank you.

If you cannot experience heavenly
love on earth, you are not able to enter
God’s Kingdom in the spirit world. Have
you sincerely loved a Cain-type person?
In order to go to the Kingdom of Heav-
en, your love should surpass the paren-
tal love and conjugal love of the satanic
world. If the parents in the satanic world
are able to die for the sake of their child,
we should demonstrate a love that sur-
passes them. (Blessed Family – 953)

Leviticus 

18“ ‘Do not take your wife’s sister as a rival wife and have sexual relations with her while your wife is living.

Richard:  God still has rules for sexual relationships, i.e. only inside of marriage.  All the various sexual perversions of our society are an abomination before God;  they are not God’s will.

Psalm 107

38He blesseth them also, so that they are multiplied greatly; and suffereth not their cattle to decrease.

39Again, they are minished and brought low through oppression, affliction, and sorrow.

40He poureth contempt upon princes, and causeth them to wander in the wilderness, where there is no way.

41Yet setteth he the poor on high from affliction, and maketh him families like a flock.

42The righteous shall see it, and rejoice: and all iniquity shall stop her mouth.

43Whoso is wise, and will observe these things, even they shall understand the lovingkindness of the LORD.

Richard:  If you love God with all your heart mind body and soul, and that includes honoring His sons Jesus and Rev. Sun Myung Moon as the Second Coming, then God will work to give you the desire of your heart.  It may not happen in the timing or way that you expect, but when we ask for bread, God does not give us a stone.  I can see this in my own life, where the things that I most deeply desire God provides, but not in ways that I may immediately know, yet He is there wanting to help fulfill the deepest desires of our heart if they are righteous and good.

The Essence of the Kingdom of God

1 Corinthians 13

4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.

Matthew 20

29As Jesus and his disciples were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed him. 30Two blind men were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was going by, they shouted, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”

31The crowd rebuked them and told them to be quiet, but they shouted all the louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!”

32Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked.

33“Lord,” they answered, “we want our sight.”

34Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him. Continue reading “The Essence of the Kingdom of God”

The Kingdom is Coming

Genesis 45: 17

17Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Tell your brothers, ‘Do this: Load your animals and return to the land of Canaan, 18and bring your father and your families back to me.

Ezekiel 21

1The word of the Lord came to me: 2“Son of man, set your face against Jerusalem and preach against the sanctuary. Prophesy against the land of Israel 3and say to her: ‘This is what the Lord says: I am against you. I will draw my sword from its sheath and cut off from you both the righteous and the wicked. 4Because I am going to cut off the righteous and the wicked, my sword will be unsheathed against everyone from south to north. 5Then all people will know that I the Lord have drawn my sword from its sheath; it will not return again.’

Isaiah 17

10You have forgotten God your Savior;

you have not remembered the Rock, your fortress.

Therefore, though you set out the finest plants

and plant imported vines,

11though on the day you set them out, you make them grow,

and on the morning when you plant them, you bring them to bud,

yet the harvest will be as nothing

in the day of disease and incurable pain.

Richard:  Today we have three readings about God’s judgement.  In many ways this is already occurring as men abandon God and Christ.  Gangs wantonly murder people in America’s large cities; in Europe gangs of Muslim men rape women.  Yet, a new sovereignty is coming, as the Cheon Il Guk Constitution has been released, and President Donald Trump is fighting for sovereignty.  Substantially, you can join with the Second King and Rev. Sun Myung Moon, study the Cheon Il Guk Constutution, join the Marriage Blessing (and movement of preparation for marriage blessing, Urban Life Training.  Attend our seminar on March 18th, 2017.
