The New Truth Must Appear

Cheon Seong Gyeong 606

Where do you discover God’s supreme
love? Not in a palace. The way to occupy
the highest love of God is found at the
bottom of hell where you are bleeding
close to the point of collapse and about
to die. When I was in prison under the
communists, the spirit world testified to
me without my saying even one word.
That is why I had disciples who were
resolved to do anything for me at the risk
of their lives. Given that kind of support,
had I been a villain, I would have had
many ways to escape from prison. God
works with us in such situations. (91-175,
1977.2.6)

We know from history that the
Americans established their nation
while migrating from east to west, giv-
ing birth to a new civilization. Then,
based on Hawaii, the United States
secured a beach-head from which to
influence the Pacific Ocean sphere. (79-72,
1975.6.1)
The reason that Japan attacked
Pearl Harbor in Hawaii is that she had
come to the conclusion that it would
be impossible to defend her position in
either China or Korea without strik-
ing the United States, which lay in the
background. You should be aware of
this. You should understand that Japan
struck Pearl Harbor in order to defend
her dominant position in Korea and
China. Historians in America have not
known this. I am certain about these
things. (111-313, 1981.3.9)

THE LAST DAYS

3.1 THE MEANING OF THE LAST DAYS
Human history has been the history of restoration. Despite its evil beginning, the world under the sovereignty of Satan must one day be transformed into the world where goodness reigns, where the three great blessings are fulfilled centered on God. The Messiah comes at this time of transformation.
The Last Days is this time, when the evil world under satanic sov-
ereignty is transformed into the ideal world under God’s sovereignty.
Hell on earth will be transformed into the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.
THE LAST DAYS AND THE PRESENT DAYS
We can deduce that today is in fact the Last Days by examining the
various circumstances of the present age. We can recognize in these cir-
cumstances the restoration of the three great blessings, which God has
purposed in His providence of restoration.
4.1 SIGNS OF THE RESTORATION OF THE FIRST BLESSING
The first blessing God gave to Adam and Eve was perfection of indi-
vidual character. 73 In the modern world.
First, we can observe that the spirituality of fallen people is being
restored. A second sign that the first blessing is being restored in the present
era can be seen in the historical trend toward the recovery of the free-
dom of the original mind. A third sign of the renewal of the first blessing is the restoration of
true human value. A fourth sign that the first blessing is being renewed in the present
age is the restoration of original, true love in fallen people.
This is more evidence that the present time is the eve of the Last Days, when we can restore God’s
first blessing and reach perfection of individual character grounded in
the love of God.
4.2 SIGNS OF THE RESTORATION OF THE SECOND BLESSING
God’s second blessing was for Adam and Eve to attain True
Parenthood and bear and raise good children, forming a family, soci-
ety and world where goodness reigns. In the present
era, the world has been coalescing into one cultural sphere based on
Christian ideals. As the world has been greatly influenced by the teachings
of Jesus and the Holy Spirit, who are the True Parents of humankind, 75 the
way has been opened for all people to become godly children. This trend
is evidence that God’s second blessing is being restored. Thus, we can con-
clude with certainty that the present age is the Last Days.
At present, our world is divided into two: the democratic world, which seeks to create societies on God’s side, and the
communist world, which has been establishing regimes on Satan’s side. Today we are at this very point of inter-
section, when these two worlds are confronting each other in the final battle. This is yet more evidence that the present era is the Last Days.
4.3 SIGNS OF THE RESTORATION OF THE THIRD BLESSING
Once Adam and Eve had attained perfection, they were to fulfill
God’s third blessing by gaining dominion over the natural world.
Dominion over the natural world has two aspects: internal and exter-
nal. Internal dominion denotes dominion of the heart. God’s providence of restoration through religion, philosophy, ethics and so forth, has gradually elevated the spirituality of fallen people toward God. In the modern world, there is evidence that people are regaining the worthiness to govern the creation through heart. External dominion denotes proper mastery of the creation through science and technology, leading to today’s highly advanced science. Modern people have built an extremely comfortable and pleasant living environment through the economic progress that has accompanied scientific development. Fallen people have thus been restoring their dominion over the universe, advancing toward the re-establishment of God’s third blessing. Observing this, we are assured that the present era is the Last Days.

THE LAST DAYS , THE NEW TRUTH AND OUR ATTITUDE

5.1 THE LAST DAYS AND THE NEW TRUTH
Fallen people have been overcoming their internal ignorance by
enlightening their spirituality and intellect with “spirit and truth” 79
through religion. “Truth” may be divided into two types: internal truth
as taught by religion, which helps people overcome internal ignorance,
and external truth as obtained through science, which helps people
overcome external ignorance.
God assists ignorant, fallen people to elevate their spirituality and
enlighten their intellect through spirit and truth. By these means, God
conducts His providence to restore people to the original state before the
Fall. Spirit and truth are unique, eternal and unchanging. However, the
degree and scope of their teaching and the means of their expression
will vary from one age to another as they restore humankind from a
state of utter ignorance.
For modern, intellectual people to be enlightened in the truth, there must appear another textbook of higher and richer content, with a more scientific method of expression. We call this the new truth.
5.2 OUR ATTITUDE IN THE LAST DAYS
Those who live in this period suffer internally from anxiety, fear and confusion due to the absence of a guiding ideology or philosophy. They suffer externally from strife and battles fought with fearsome weapons. The providence of the new age does not begin on the ashes of the
old age. On the contrary, the new age sprouts and grows amidst the
final phases of the old age and comes into conflict with that age. Jesus, for example, who inaugurated the New Testament Age, came at the close of the Old Testament Age in such a way as to bewilder the faithful adherents of the Mosaic Law.
He was ostracized by the Jewish people and eventually crucified.
We who are alive today are living in the Last Days. We should cul-
tivate a humble heart and make the utmost effort to receive divine
inspiration through prayer. We should not be strongly attached to con-
ventional concepts, but rather should direct ourselves to be receptive
to the spirit, in order that we may find the new truth which can guide
us to the providence of the new age.

You should have the qualifications
necessary to enter the heaven where I
am going. To enter you need to fulfill at
least one of the points I have instruct-
ed. What would happen if you achieved
that? You would then become worthy to
connect to the love centering on the true
God, the true Parents, true nation, true
world and true heaven. In other words,
you would earn the right to serve God
as your own Father, the Father of the
individual, family, nation, world and
all of heaven and earth. In other words,
you will inherit the authority to serve
Him as your individual, family, tribal,
racial, national and global Father. This
is because He exists to become the Par-
ent and stand in the position of the uni-
versal Parent.
Therefore He is the Father of the
individual and at the same time, of the
family, tribe, people, nation, world and
heaven. This is the case in both the phys-
ical and spirit worlds. (98-224, 1978.8.1)

Do you all know into which part of
the body God invested His greatest cre-
ative effort? It is the sexual organ. The
term sexual organ does not signify a
reproduction machine. It is the most
precious part of all, but it lies beside the
most unclean part. Are you aware of
that? Is the urethra found in the same
place or not? It is in the same place. This
is true for both man and woman. Why
were they created that way? Even the
best of seeds needs to be fertilized to
take root and grow well. The greater the
value of something, the more fertilizer it
needs to continually receive.

Matthew 10:34-39

Matthew 18:15-20

Jesus spoke of the bridegroom and the bride. Those words were external, like a letter. Religion until now was the religion of conscience. It was not the religion of the heart. It set the heartistic target, yet did not have the heartistic content. Therefore, his words were a form of conscience and a letter of a promise. Thus, we need to find the words of heart by which we can relate to the content of that letter. We need to look for the words of heart in which I can be eternally intoxicated, for which I long, with which I can rejoice, with which I can love, and with which I can live together. Next, we should become the substantiation of our Father’s words. We should become the substantiation which God will not deny and which Jesus will recognize as his bride. Only then, can we become the heavenly person.

From now on you should not say that you do not know the Bible which you believe in very well; that you do not know who is really Jesus; that you know him only by words, but not heartistically; and that you know Jesus conceptually, but not experientially. If you are like this, you have nothing to do with Jesus.

It was said that now is the time “to find,” “to seek,” and “to knock.” We visited the fancy brick houses and great doors and looked for tens of years, yet we did not find anything. We should, therefore, look in the opposite direction. God is pushing us from behind. God is bringing the good people and driving them into the evil world. We should know that God’s new dispensation starts from the people who are persecuted. That does not necessarily mean that such people are the Unification Church members. The people who came here for the first time may think, “Oh, look at this Unification Church. How could they do this.” but think as you will.

This Time is the Same as When Jesus Was on the Earth

Cheon Seong Gyeong 217

True Parents have the responsibility
to connect the indirect dominion with
the direct dominion. The question is
how to demolish the walls within indi-
viduals, families, tribes, peoples, nations
and the world, which are linked to Satan.
Satan, for his part, thinks about how to
block this continuing work of God. The
two have been dueling this way. Satan
has been persistently opposing God. For
my part, I have been standing between
God and Satan, constantly working to
get rid of the latter. How do we move the
work forward without being exposed to
Satan’s accusation? This is the reason
the course of indemnification has come
about. This is humankind’s portion of
responsibility, which, so far, it has failed
to carry out. The question, then, is how
we can fulfill our responsibility. Satan
knows that this issue is the responsibil-
ity of the Messiah. That is why he has
attacked True Parents by mobilizing all
his forces. I have been doing the work
of destroying Satan’s walls wherever
they are found: in individuals, families,
tribes, peoples, nations, the world and
even the spirit world. The Messiah must
clear the way along all these paths.
This has been the history of our Uni-
fication Church. Toward Satan we have
always upheld the Principle with love.
God has agonized over how fallen par-
ents, who inherited Satan’s lineage,
could be restored to the point where they
attain the status of the True Parents of
humankind. This restoration occurred
for the first time in history at True Par-
ents’ Holy Wedding in 1960. Since Jesus
was unable to reverse the fall of Adam
and Eve, I must do everything on his
behalf. (118-270, 1982.6.13)

Of the 36 Couples, the Adam couples
were already married couples, the Noah
couples were engaged but not married,
and the Jacob couples were virgin men
and women. Noah’s family did not fulfill
the Will. When you look at the people
in the world today you see that there are
already married couples, those who are
in informal relationships or are engaged,
and the completely pure single men and
women. From this time on, the foremost
kind of people that True Parents should
be seeking for are not the Adam couples
but the true sons and daughters, in oth-
er words, pure single men and women.

Let Us Love Heaven and Become Patriots

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
March 1, 1959

Matthew 5: 33-48

If history were to end, to what are we going to connect on a worldwide level after that? This is the crucial question which young men and women full of hope, ideals and courage must resolve. What we should hold onto and what we should throw away is an issue upon which humanity, awaiting the judgment of the last days, must decide.

Judging from the situation of that time, Jesus was seen as a traitor to the people. He was seen as a traitor to his church, tribe and tradition. Yet, in truth, he was not a destroyer but a builder; he was not a traitor, but a patriot. He truly loved Heaven. People have come to understand this truth only recently.

When we think of a true patriot, we probably have some idea of what kind of person he is. If someone is a true patriot or a true democrat, he should see the entire world as one people, as Jesus did. Continue reading “This Time is the Same as When Jesus Was on the Earth”
