You are alive for a short time. Life is
too short. When faced with the prob-
lem of whether or not you can make a
breakthrough before you die, you should
think like this, “If you can extend my life
even a little bit, I will give all the power I
have.” You should be thinking like this,
but you look like you are just spectators.
That is why I am asking you to do Home
Church. The words Home Church will be
good for your entire life. (107-52, 1980.1.20)

Richard:  Again here True Father, Rev. Moon emphasizes the importance of Home Church.

Nowadays, people say the teenage
years are important. Why is that? There
are pluses and minuses everywhere…
They are out of control and want to go
around everywhere. When they do, they
bring about their own self-destruction as
well as the destruction of their society.

We Who Are Walking a Life Course

1 Peter 1: 21-25

Since this is our fate, we have to walk the path. This is inescapable and absolute. The greatest desire in human life is the heart which can rejoice in the homeland of the truth; the life by which the truth and heart can act in union; and the love which can join truth, heart and life and evoke heavenly love. What situation are you in today? If you have a healthy body and emotions, what are you gazing at? What are you thinking about and in what direction is your body moving? These are the things you will be judged on.

My hand, how much have you longed for the truth and how hard have you worked to find the truth? My body, how much have you cooperated with the mind which is racing toward the truth and the original self? These are the questions you should ask yourself. If you have the attitude, “Let things unfold as they will; I have eaten a meal and have slept well, so I am content,” and lead a relaxed life, then your life will pass by you and you will crash into the cliff of death. Ladies and gentlemen! Human beings are not valueless. The master of the universe did not put us on earth so we could lead such disorderly and purposeless lives.

We cannot ignore the fact that there is some relationship which seeks to reach a goal through the phenomenal world based on the relationship of cause and purpose. Then how can human beings, who should be concerned with synthesizing the relationship and discussing its value, be so petty? You are not that kind of people. There may be smart people, but those who want to say, “I am educated,” and try to escape should knock on this door. This is what I want to say.

We should elevate the direction of our minds. We should elevate the world of the heart. We are not to look down upon the earth alone but up to higher grounds. We should not just look at the world; we should look up to Heaven.

Our world of heart is not satisfied with our life on the earth. The purpose of the earth and the function of the conscience in this world do not want to stay where they are. You probably cannot deny your desire to possess some power in your life, to seek some satisfaction, and to build an eternal relationship based upon which your heart can expand infinitely. Then where is the truth, mind, life and love which can overcome the Last Days of history? You should look for them.

We Have to Align the Orientation of the Heart with the Laws of the Universe

You understand the tong ban break-
through activities, don’t you? I’ve talked
about Home Church these past fourteen
years. I spent a lot of money to educate
you. These past five years I’ve talked
about tong ban breakthrough activities.
I set up the men to do this, but because
they failed miserably, I have no choice
but to set up the women in the final
attempt. (238-305, 1992.11.22)

Richard:  Tong Ban or Home Church is the basic formula for building the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.  It has not changed and will not change.  Join the Tribal Messiah Association to learn more about this and participate in the discussion:  https://tribalmessiah.visionroot.org/.

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1438

Why are tribal messiahs necessary?
If there are no tribal messiahs, then
all the families cannot be connected
between themselves. Without this, you
cannot have your hometown. I have
my own hometown but you do not
have one. After restoring all the fami-
lies, there will come the age of reg-
istration in the future. Once the age
of registration comes, tribal formation
will take place. The order in which you
register will determine your position.
Those who register first will be the
elders and a new system will be devel-
oped so that they can be attended in
the same manner as you attend your
ancestors. Only when the whole world
is transformed accordingly, will the
heavenly kingdom on earth be real-
ized. (210-273, 1990.12.25)

1 Peter 1: 21-25

Then the problem is simple. No matter how great the function of the mind may be, it cannot be more effective than the level the person has reached. Do you understand? It cannot make a greater impact than the state the person has attained. Even though it stands in the position of a subject partner, it cannot be much more effective. Because the mind stands in the reciprocal position to control the body, it cannot function outside of the reciprocal relationship.

For this reason there are gaps among consciences. Although they have many kinds of differences, each conscience is somehow oriented towards the original nature. A system of thought and beliefs emerges to secure the direction of the conscience. A view of life or the universe, some doctrine, assertion or truth appears. It is a perfected entity which has a reciprocal nature. When there is a perfect minus, we can have some understanding of a perfect plus. When there is a perfect plus, we can establish a perfect minus. This is a natural phenomenon. Since there is an eternal, unchanging and perfect subject partner in Heaven, we must strive through our hearts to resemble Him and establish a common base with Him.

God cannot shift the standard of the heart at whim. It can be moved only in harmony with the body. We have to control our body, put it in a certain situation, and align the orientation of the heart with the laws of the universe. God wants such laws of truth to be established. If a truth appears which can link the world together and join it with the principles of Heaven, the conscience can expand outward without limits and be active.

This is the reason human beings have sought truth. However, in the civilized world, which prides itself on twentieth-century culture, we have not seen the emergence of a truth which encourages us to establish a natural common base with the infinite absolute being whom we want to seek from the depth of our hearts. For this reason human beings have not been able to transcend the grief of the Fall.

Thus, you have to understand that God has suffered many sorrows which He encountered in His work as He tried to instruct human beings in various ways and to connect them to the one purpose. How laborious must God’s path have been as He was walking our path of escape through which we can find the direction of the truth in our lives? When we discuss all the sad hearts and miserable situations in human history, you many think that human history has been a fearsome experience. However, you have to understand that for the guide of that history, a more fearsome battle is taking place even at this moment. Without such struggles, incredibly miserable events will unfold which will prevent you from sleeping peacefully at night.

Since the mind is the beginning and end and can connect to the spirit and the original self, until the moment all sorrows are erased and we are liberated from them eternally, the mind will stimulate the same feeling of sadness. This is what you have to feel. Since human beings caused this sorrow, human beings connected us to that sorrow and prolonged it, it is only natural that judgment is given to human beings.

 

 

This Will Become an Unforgivable Sin Before Heaven

Religious leaders prostrate them-
selves and pray in an effort to receive
blessings, but I have never prayed to
receive any blessing. The Old Testament
Age was the age of finding God’s people
by establishing all things; the New Testa-
ment Age was the age of finding the Par-
ents by sacrificing the sons and daugh-
ters; and the Completed Testament Age
is the age of liberating God by sacrificing
the Parents’ family. This means bring-
ing the Original Parents to this earth
and living with them for thousands of
years. The Korean folk song about the
moon and the laurel tree sings of bring-
ing parents and living with them for
tens of thousands of years. This Korean
tale contains a revelation: “…wanting to
bring the heavenly parents to earth and
live with them for tens of thousands of
years….” Whenever I think about this
song, I cannot escape the intense long-
ing in my heart.
Don’t ever feel bad about having been
born as a Korean. In the past, you might
have felt pity for yourself for having been
born Korean, saying “How is it that I was
born in a thatched-roof hut among these
poor Korean people, although Korea
boasts of its five-thousand-year histo-
ry?” The Korean song that goes “Moon,
Oh moon, you bright moon” sings of
building a thatched cottage and living
there for thousands of years. I do not
feel happy when I hear this song. Only a
thatched-roof cottage? How can we ful-
fill the wishes of the people there? How-
ever, its reference to “build a thatched
cottage, bring my parents there and
live with them there for thousands of
years” must refer to the ideal parents of
humanity. The song connects with the
Christian belief in the Second Coming
and with the belief in a savior to come
that is present among all peoples and
nations. (85-80, 1976.3.2)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1315

The year 1970 saw the beginning of
a great mobilization. The Blessed Fami-
lies from ten nations around the world
were called to Korea, in order to restore
Canaan. They were called to Korea and
became completely united while over
here. You must know that this was after
the Blessing of the 777 Couples. Wasn’t
that Blessing held in 1970? In mak-
ing such a foundation, the Unification
tribe from across the world representing
ten nations came to participate. Going
beyond the number nine, which signifies
formation, growth and completion, the
number ten is the number of God, and it
also corresponds to the number twelve.
That is why the ten nations must be con-
nected providentially. (69-237, 1974.1.1)

1 Peter 1: 21-25

The mind acts according to the principles of the universe. It wants to move without limits toward goodness. This is like a magnetic needle pointing to north and south. The principle of nature would never lose the direction and circumvent goodness. There is no such phenomenon. The human mind also seeks to move toward a certain purpose. We have to understand clearly that the mind which is orientated toward life moves through the heart, desires to distill out the truth, desires to unite with the whole, and desires to live in harmony with the doctrine of the whole. This mind is the foundation upon which Heaven can reveal the escape route.

We who are fleeing must fight if we are to maintain a heart which is orientated toward the heavenly nature. We have to fight. We have to understand clearly that depending on whether or not we reach the goals of escape, we may or may not attain salvation. This is the process we are walking through. How should we run?

Ladies and gentlemen, think about this carefully. When we are in a fight, we have to fight in a way that God desires, use the strategies that God desires, and reach the point which God desires. It is inevitable that we have to establish values which comply with the program of the sponsor.

Ladies and gentlemen, please reflect once more upon what state you are in. Since we cannot deny that we acting in a world of purpose and we are chained to that world, the crucial question we must address is what our situation is in the escape route of our life. There are those who are not awake, even when layers of the enemies’ ranks are blocking the path before them. They are only dreaming about their situation, or they do not know that they are in a deep sleep. There are those who have fallen from fatigue in the middle of the path they should run on. There are all kinds of cases.

You should find yourself again. You who are participating here today should set the standard of heart, and, based upon that, discern your position and state of being and analyze yourself. Your mind yearns for something, yet without clearly understanding, you feel uneasy and fearful. For this reason, not only would you feel through natural phenomena that you should not be in the situation you are in; you will also sense it through all the things you see around you. Hence, even through these things you will have to understand the situation and state that you are in.

If you can become spiritually open, you will see that countless religious people of the distant past are crying out before the people. Many spirits are running by your side today. They are trying to awaken you by saying, “Let’s go; enemies are coming.” Yet your ears do not hear these voices; your eyes do not see; your bodies do not sense this. This is how tragic the situation is. There is nothing more mournful than this. This is not something that only you will lament over. This will become an unforgivable sin before Heaven, who is trying to connect the value of existence to the world of the ideals of the whole.

You Must Find Righteousness In Your Mind

John 4:46

46 While Jesus was in Galilee, he returned to the village of Cana, where he had turned the water into wine. There was an official in Capernaum whose son was sick. 47 And when the man heard that Jesus had come from Judea, he went and begged him to keep his son from dying.

48 Jesus told the official, “You won’t have faith unless you see miracles and wonders!”

Richard:  Be confident in God working through you as you align with your original mind.

Isaiah 3

24 In place of perfume,
    there will be a stink;
in place of belts,
    there will be ropes;
in place of fancy hairdos,
    they will have bald heads.
Instead of expensive clothes,
    they will wear sackcloth;
instead of beauty,
    they will have ugly scars.
25 The fighting men of Jerusalem
    will be killed in battle.
26 The city will mourn
and sit in the dirt,
    emptied of its people.

Hebrews 11:1-32

We speak of ourselves as faithful people. We flatter ourselves that we are going forward in search of the ideology of Heaven. Singing of the hope of tomorrow as the standard, we go in search of the nation and people of tomorrow, the race, the family, and the self of tomorrow. This is the path of faith. However, there still remains some distance between me and the future me. I am not there yet. If we look for that self here, we will be disappointed. You must first finish walking the path of tribulation and raise the standard of ardent Shim Jung. As long as the new history remains to be built, the day of fruition will not come. Since we began our steps, having readied ourselves as the elite soldiers of Heaven, we must proceed, looking forward. We must not look back, saying that we hear something behind. That is the sound of enemies. You must not relate with one because he is affectionate toward you. You must know that he is the enemy who has an eye on your life. In the environment you live in, there is no true friend. There is no true leader. Only in the place where you seek the real truth and the true leader will the true heavenly leader appear. Even if one had a great relationship of true life in the course of history, there were reasons for him having to appear with the relationship of false life. You must seek righteousness; you must find it in your mind. You must seek a teacher of righteousness; you must find him in your mind. You must seek a home of righteousness; you must find it in your mind. You must seek the homeland of righteousness; you must find it in your mind, and you must seek the nation of righteousness in your mind. You must consider the ideology of hope as the point of unity and oneness. Going further, by fighting with the environmental darkness, you must boast of that relationship and wait eagerly with an impatient Shim Jung for the desire to be fulfilled. Only when we make our way through the surrounding environment, boasting of the appearance of our true self, will heavenly history begin for the first time.

Only when you cross the finishing line of the final victory will new hope appear to you. You will receive a new day. You will own a new ideology. To make that new ideology your own, you must realize that the heavenly condition remains for you to go such a path. Accordingly, we who are going, having put this historical fate at the forefront, must have a firm determination. Continue reading “You Must Find Righteousness In Your Mind”

Hebrews 11:1-32

To begin centered on himself, to bring settlement centered on himself, to pass judgment centered on himself is the most effective way for a person. Therefore, rather than pursuing the relative self, you should pursue the self who has a direct connection to Heaven, the one with the mind that pursues value. The stimulus to cry out for and to fight to seek such a self should begin with “me.” Thus, it should test my mettle. Only when that self is stimulated do I and the hoped-for “I” form mutual ties with which we surmount the difficult path of faith without problems. You must know this.

This teacher you follow has limitless feeling regarding humankind today. While I feel like cursing endlessly, at the same time, I feel like singing about that self which is hopeful.

You must know how to feel such a mind each hour throughout your lifetime. Since this is a path we take to seek such a self, without caring at all about the circumstances and situations relating to persons or the church, you must feel that you cannot abandon that path; nor can you loiter. You cannot hesitate and merely watch. Any person who retreats from such a course will not be able to own the hoped-for self. We will sigh for grief from that time on. You must realize that if you keep continuing life as it has been up to now, you will fall into a state of being lamentful, desperate and self-destructive. We cannot help lamenting about being incompetent and enervated.

Seeking and impatiently waiting for such a hoped-for self is the best standard for the ideal person of faith. You must be deeply imbued with the Shim Jung wishing to meet such a self someday. Only then can you know how to look at Heaven, and you will fight to find that self.

Hebrews 11:1-32

If we wish to give our fealty to Heaven, we should, first of all, be able to bow our heads before the mind within us that wishes to do so. That mind did not originate with us. It did not come about of its own accord. It came about through some kind of truth, through some kind of reason, and through the relationships established in heaven and on earth. We must consider this valuable and precious, what we have decided in our minds, what we have pledged. We should not allow that determination, that pledge and shock of heart to end on the same day. We must bring them to a conclusion with history, and we must resolve them in concert with history. The grace of Heaven is present here. Because we have such relationships, the determination we made should not disappear along with history, nor should the pledge we made.

Only when a person emerges who feels responsible for a mission like this can Heaven be relieved and give commands. This is how I see it. We say that we are deeply imbued with sorrow, but how great would the sorrow of Heaven be, when relating with a wicked person, who has a mind that forsakes the heavenly relationship several times a day? You should realize that Heaven is weighing such a person, putting him on the scales. This is a relationship we cannot help having; this is a relationship from which we can never escape. It is a relationship we cannot free ourselves from, whether we go to the heavenly kingdom or to hell. That is why we feel pain when we go to hell.
