Adam Is God’s Body

When you enter heaven, if being able to speak the language of the homeland is one of the requisites, what are you going to do? You will be asked whether you speak it. This is the viewpoint of the Principle, according to which Adam and Eve’s children would speak the language of their parents and not another. English is the fallen archangel’s language. It is a shame. This is the viewpoint of the Principle. When you go to the spirit world, your ancestors will point at you and accuse you, saying, “Even though you served the True Parents, you did not learn Korean!” Korean is the True Parents’ language. There is nothing we can do about them having been born in Korea. (128-244, 1983.6.27)

If you were to bring together a male king orangutan and an ugly woman, marry them, and make them pray and offer devotions for thousands of years, would they ever have offspring? Would they be able to produce a baby? Give me an answer, you descendants of monkeys, communist gangsters! Do you think that offspring could be produced from the marriage of an orangutan and a woman, if the communist world were to pray and implement all kinds of force, or do you think that impossible? If you do not know, don’t insist upon communism or evolutionary theory. You should all wise up to that. (262-80, 1994.7.23)

The Reality of Love

Section 1. God’s Love

1.1. Love originates from God

God’s love appears in a place that does not change. God’s love is unchanging, and thus, eternal. If God’s love appears to us, it appears on the foundation of an unchanging heart. Thus, for our entire life, we should eat for the sake of that love, sleep for the sake of that love, and act for the sake of that love. As long as we have an eternal and perfect standard for the sake of love, God’s love will appear. Otherwise, the public principles of this universe would all be in vain. (83-179, 1976.2.8)

God is our father. Day and night, He worries that His children may be harmed; He protects us lest troubles happen; and He defends us lest some opposing circumstances appear. He is that kind of parent. Going in search of the essence of such a parent is the way of goodness and the way of love. Human beings, as His children, need to receive God’s perfect love. (57-85, 1972.5.29)

Until now, God has given love to those people and even those tribes and nations that were near His side. He has blessed them by adding things again and again lest they should think of them as too small and not receive them. Even this was not enough, and He gave them the life of His beloved son. Even after giving over his only son to be killed, God again wants to give more love. This is why, on the day when this love is returned, all of heaven and earth will turn into an ideal Kingdom of Heaven. By the principle of love, the more love you receive, the more love you give in return. So when we give God a hundred units of love, God will return to us a thousand, ten thousand units of love. (38-166, 1971.1.3)

If only we have God’s love, we can remain in God’s bosom, we can squeeze God’s nose, and we will have no boundaries wherever in the world we go. We will have a free pass everywhere. (91-227, 1977.2.20)

If you were to receive a kiss of love from God, you would feel joy triggering an explosion within you. It is here that God’s desire is fulfilled; He would not rejoice over having diamonds or other jewelry. (Blessed Family – 380)

Where do God and human beings connect? They connect where their lives intersect, their love intersects and their ideals intersect. What is this point? It is the place of the parent-child relationship. From this point of view, God is the subject partner of love, the subject partner of life, and the subject partner of the ideal. In relation to His children, God ignores His authority and dignity. However sinful and incompetent His children may be, if they embrace him He will not say, “You scoundrel, don’t do that!” Rather, God will embrace them, rub them, and love them. Experiencing this will melt your bones. (69-79, 1973.10.20)

God has the desire to give again unceasingly even after having given for thousands of years. It is for this reason that we are looking for God. If God were a cheap merchant who says, after giving, “Hey, that will cost you such and such an amount,” we would not need such a God. (36-290, 1970.12.13)

What happens when you come in contact with God’s love? Your hair will dance, and so will your cells. When you become a hundred percent intoxicated in this love, you will want to live forever rather than withdrawing. If someone were to try to wake you up, you would tell him not to. Mysterious things will happen. As the saying goes, “A saint’s delight makes him forget the passage of time.” There is indeed a way to become enraptured in such a high level of love, beyond human imagination. (59-316, 1972.7.30)

Love can fill anywhere, and reach everywhere. What do you think happens when loving people embrace each other? Do they just hold each other’s hands and say, “I love you”? Perhaps they would like to be hugged so strongly that their eye balls pop out and water comes out from their nose and mouth. When they embrace, they don’t just stand still but turn around. The universe will turn only when they become one in love like this. (81-18, 1975.11.23)

God is the father of human beings, and human beings are the sons and daughters of God. They were created through God investing the core of His bone, the core of His flesh, and the core of His bone marrow in their entirety. Thus, when human beings pull God, God cannot but be pulled along; and when God pulls human beings, they cannot but be pulled along. (20-207, 1968.6.9)

Why do people like and follow God? It is because God is one who gives and again gives everything for thousands of years and yet still feels ashamed. He says, “Now I can only give you this much, but wait a bit longer, and I will give you something that is many hundreds of times, many thousands of times better.” This is because He is someone whose heart is not content with today’s giving but promises to give better things in the future. (36-290, 1970.12.13)

Why do human beings live forever? I am asking why everyone is seeking eternal life. We are seeking an eternal partnership of love because this way we can have the value of object partners of love before God, who is the absolute subject partner, and because we will inevitably live eternally before the God of absolute love. When you come to stand in this place, God becomes you and you become God, above and below alike. If only you become one in love, you can put God in your pocket and He can go in. (137-67, 1985.12.18)

When we become connected to such a realm of God’s love, what kind of feeling will we have? We will feel as if we are looking at the beautiful flowers and smelling all the fragrances in a spring garden. At such times all our cells will dance. (24-324, 1969.9.14) If God’s love is the vertical love, the love of a man and a woman is a horizontal love. If a man and a woman are to meet, they must engraft their horizontal love onto the vertical love. It must join at a ninety-degree angle. A love that does not fit this, a love that is not connected to the vertical standard, will end up as a nomadic love and be destroyed. Hence, when you enter the realm of love where the vertical and horizontal are aligned, you will be able to rule the whole universe through love. When you have a relationship with the whole universe, you will not need any knowledge, power, money, or even life. Life also lives eternally within love. (136-203, 1985.12.29)

It is not Adam and Eve’s bodies that God likes but their love for each other. What is the final thing that God wants from human beings? It is the place where God meets His sons and daughters and loves them. And the final destination desired by human beings is also a place where they attend God as their father and receive love as His sons and daughters. (56-145, 1972.5.14)

For God, Adam is the core of God’s self, and the core of the ideal love of the future. So Adam is God’s body. On the other hand, Eve is God’s wife and body. Adam is a spiritual partner relating to God’s body and Eve is a physical partner. So when Adam and Eve become husband and wife and love each other, with whom are they sharing their love? They are in love with God. This is why marriage is exceptionally holy. (102-208, 1978.12.31)
