    A person’s life passes through three worlds: the formation-stage world, the growth-stage world, and the completion-stage world. We live in a world of water inside our mother’s womb, and then in this earthly world, and finally in the aerial world in the spiritual realm. In other words, we go through three stages: the aqueous world in the womb, followed by a hundred years on this earth after our birth, and then the aerial world where we can fly.
    While a baby is in the womb, does he try to escape to the outside world, or does he want to stay there? When he has to go out through such a small hole, does he say, “Oh, no!” or, “Oh, that’s great!”? Suppose the baby were told, “If you want to go out, this house you live in will be destroyed, and the source and value of nourishment where you are will all be destroyed. Your head and body will have to swell. Would the baby still want to go out?” Would he say yes, or would he say no? Just before the time of delivery, the mother desperately pushes and the baby says, “Oh, no!” until the moment of birth; but at last the mother pushes the baby out. When this happens, one world completely disappears and the baby begins to breathe in another world. (116-174, 1982.1.1)

    I have tied a rope high up with God according to the way of heaven and earth. People tried to grab hold of the rope, but they failed. In the end, this created wars between churches and nations, bringing countries to ruin. The Unification Church fought and knocked out the established churches, political parties, and the democratic and communist worlds that had opposed it. When the rope is hanging from high up, do you think they could sever it with their own strength? Can they cut off the Unification Church? Whether it is based on philosophy or religion or communication with the spirit world, no one can match us in theory.

Selections from the Speeches of Rev. Sun Myung Moon
True God
Chapter 2

God and the Work of Creation

Section 4. The Ideal of Love is Fulfilled in the Family
4.2. The ideal of creation is fulfilled through the completion of the family

    The ideal that God wanted to see fulfilled through our first ancestors was for a man and a woman to become one and create an ideal family. Then, the center of the ideal family is neither the man nor the woman. The family is a bundle created by the union of parents, children, husband and wife, and the center of this bundle is God’s love itself. The conclusion is that God’s will is to realize the completion of a family centered on God’s love. (127-9, 1983.5.1) Continue reading “A Perfected Family Is the Foundation for the Kingdom of Heaven”

Don’t you have to register births? If you are Japanese, you need to register as a citizen of Japan who was born in a certain place. Similarly, we need to be registered into the kingdom. Until now, the Kingdom of God has not existed. Since there has been no family centered on True Parents, it follows that there was no tribe or nation either. We need to indemnify all this, so that we can reclaim the family, tribe, a people, nation, and world from the satanic realm, the kingdom of Satan. Centering on the religious realm, the whole world including the non-religious realm must be united together, and everything that belongs to Satan must be restored to God’s side. If this is not achieved, you cannot live peacefully in the spirit world after you have passed away. It is tens, hundreds and thousands of times more difficult to form a relationship with the physical world from the spirit world. (250-112, 1993.10.12)

We entered the era of international marriage with the 777 Couples Blessing. Everyone will be brought together. From there we can pass through formation, growth, and completion stages; this time I might even intermarry all of you. What era did I say we are living in now? We are now in the era of international and interracial marriage. (100-34, 1978.10.4)

Family Pledge

Rev. Sun Myung Moon

Family Pledge 8; Having Entered the Completed Testament Age

Core concept 58:  The True Parents have come and have connected the love of a man and a woman to God’s life force and love for the first time in history.


Things were offered in the Old Testament Age, sons and daughters in the New Testament Age, couples in the Completed Testament Age. And then you attend God. As a result of the Fall, we human beings failed to attend God on earth, serving Satan instead and being separated from God. We should now attend God and reconnect everything to Him. Thus, the things in your possession are not really yours. They correspond to the Old Testament Age, and sons and daughters to the New Testament Age. In the Old Testament Age, things were sacrificed to pave the way for the children, and in the New Testament Age, sons and daughters were sacrificed for the coming of the parents. It is ultimately to attend God on this earth that the Lord at his Second Advent, the True Parent, comes and suffers on this earth. Now we are in hell because we have been in service to Satan on earth. Thus we should attend God through the application of true love. (211-352, 1991.1.1) p. 2512

Why are true parents needed? You need them because it is necessary for you to take root centering on the realm of heart. At the present time, your roots are different. Because of the Fall, the trunk and the branches are also different. A new root must begin from true parents, and new trunk and branches must also grow from them, which can then be used for engrafting. You must cut off the old trunk and branches and engraft the new shoot. By engrafting them like this on to the old root, that tree will then become part of the great mainstream of the universe. Everything in the satanic world must be cut down. It must be cut off at the roots. (164-155, 1987.5.10)

    For this reason, we must overcome our circumstances. Not only that, we must also inherit all the conditions that can bear fruit, thereby possessing the inherent strength that generates that fruition. Only then can we complete the process of fruition, becoming a fruit needed for the progress of a new social and historical course.
    After birth, people must overcome their circumstances on their own. They must undergo a process through which they can inherit new life and bear fruit in the future. Finally, they must occupy a place where they can manifest the proper effects and results. For example, after grain is sown, it germinates, matures, bears fruit, and is then harvested and stored by the owner. We too must undergo a process whereby we can be harvested for a certain purpose.
    You must understand that you are responsible to equip yourselves with the inner conditions which will permit you to inherit such hopes and to use those conditions to embrace the external environment. This must be accomplished not from a position of self-defense, but by taking the initiative.

The church is a holy place that connects heaven and earth. It is a gate to the world, enabling people to interact in relationships of cooperation, and is a spiritual pillar for the well-being of the nation. As the source of spiritual life, the church supplies strength in your daily life. (The Way of the Spiritual Leader – 238)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 699

If such work could have been done, despite Jesus’ death, Christianity would not have needed to sacrifice as it did until now. Yet there has been no other way. Why? Jesus had to go to the other world and return because, within the realm of True Parents’ heart, separation from Satan could not be done within the realm of dominion based on accomplishments through the Principle; and because the foundation of love was not established within the realm of direct dominion.

True Family Gateway to Heaven
Rev. Sun Myung Moon

Chapter Two

The Family Is the Model for the
Kingdom of Heaven

Section 3. A Training Ground of Love for Entering
the Kingdom of Love

God’s will is to realize the kingdom of love. If God’s will is to
develop and globalize the ideal world of love, the family is the
experimental ground where you earn credits, all the way from an
elementary school certificate to a bachelor’s degree and PhD. The
family expands to the world. If you look at the world carefully,
you will see that it is a world where grandfathers and
grandmothers live, a world where adults like your uncles and
aunts live, a world where people like your elder brothers and elder
sisters live, a world where youths live, and a world where children
live. So these places where old, middle-aged, young people and
children live are larger expansions of the family. (147-281,

The family is the smallest unit within the training center and is
also a textbook for entering the Kingdom of Heaven. It has all the
levels: the grandfather’s level, mother’s level, couple’s level and
sibling’s level. These levels expand into larger groups of
grandmothers and grandfathers, mothers and fathers, your own
peers, and your sons and daughters, and together they form

Only families that can love all human beings as their own spouses
and as their own parents, and serve them as their own sons and
daughters, can inherit the Kingdom of Heaven. This is amazing.
The right to inherit all the power and authority of heaven and
earth created by God lies here. (143-285, 1986.3.20)

The family is a textbook of love through which at the time of
death you receive the right to be registered at the Palace of Peace
and the Kingdom of Heaven. The family is a training ground of
love. The extension of this family is the world. The world is made
up of smaller worlds: there is a grandfathers’ world, a
grandmothers’ world, a world of fathers and mothers, there are
husbands’ and wives’ worlds and sons’ and daughters’ worlds.
When these combine we have the whole world.

Thus if you love the people of the whole world as you love your
family and as you love God through the family, this will make a
straight road to the Kingdom of Heaven. Thus the first
commandment is, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your
heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.” And the
second commandment is, “You shall love your neighbor as
yourself.” If you love God and love humanity, everything will be
accomplished. If you cannot do it, your spiritual training will have
been in vain. No matter how great a religion’s spiritual discipline
may be, if it does not know how to love God, humankind and the
whole universe it will fail the test.

In the family you should deeply experience love by going through
the official course of the training center which is an encapsulation
of the whole universe and then expand this and love the world.
You have inherited this from your family, your training ground,
where you were raised with your mother and father. Therefore if
you love your parents more than your wife, love your sons and
daughters more than your wife, love humanity more than your
wife, and love God more than your wife, everything will be
accomplished. This doesn’t mean that you should abandon your
wife. If you love in this way, all the recipients of that love will
come to love your wife as well. Is there a more glorious place than
this? If you want to love your wife, follow this way. (143-285,

Cheon Seong Gyeong 2090

    You should change your entire neighborhood, centering on God’s will, with the new experience and training that you have received in foreign lands. You must not follow the old habits of your neighborhood. You must invest yourselves as God invested Himself in creating his object of love out of nothing. These two, subject and object partners, must unite as one.
    The spirit world will cooperate when you get to the highest position among all the people of your hometown. Wait and see whether this is the truth or not. And you must make and use many videotapes for witnessing. (179-27, 1988.6.15)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1050

Even when you are speaking, the one who speaks words that are beneficial is Abel, and the one who speaks words that harm others is Cain. When you benefit someone else, you are bringing benefits to him; but when you are doing something for your own sake, it is the same as harming that person. For this reason, the public position is the place whose purpose is to benefit others, and the private position is the place where one lives for the sake of one’s own benefit. In this way, centering on public and private, Abel and Cain, as well as good and evil, are differentiated. You must understand this. (56-85, 1972.5.14)

The conscience centers on what it thinks is right.
However, without study of the Truth, this is a relative standard that differs from God’s standard.
