Christ at the Second Advent Comes as the True Father

Cheon Seong Gyeong 2280

Then who is Christ at the Second Advent? As the True Father and True Mother were lost in Eden, he is the one to come upon the earth as the True Father. He will become as one with God in heart, lineage and flesh, establish the position of True Mother, and form a family centered on this oneness. The Messiah’s family will be the first to live with and serve God. The Messiah solidifies the position of the perfected Adam. The Kingdom of Heaven will be established only after the perfected Adam and Eve marry, live on earth serving God, have sons and daughters centered upon Him, bring forth His clan and live on earth together with them, and then, finally, move on into the heavenly world together with God. (282-51, 1997.3.10)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1126

If God had not established the portion of responsibility for fallen human beings, we would have thought that restoration was to take place automatically and that the words “restoration through indemnity” would not have appeared. Indemnity must be paid. Why does indemnity have to be paid? It is because humankind has a portion of responsibility. The first human ancestors destroyed this, the very thing that they should have perfected; as a result, the whole of humanity still has to fulfill its given responsibility. To do so, everyone gains dominion over everything in the satanic world, stands in a position to dominate Satan, and reaches the position where they can receive the love of God with dignity. When that happens, Satan will be cut off. (143-77, 1986.3.16)

Ritual

You shall not eat any abominable thing. These are the animals you may eat: the ox, the sheep, the goat, the hart, the gazelle, the roebuck, the wild goat, the ibex, the antelope, and the mountain sheep. Every animal that parts the hoof and chews the cud, among the animals, you may eat. Yet of those that chew the cud or have the hoof cloven you shall not eat these: the camel, the hare, the rock badger, because they chew the cud but do not part the hoof, are unclean to you. And the swine, because it parts the hoof but does not chew the cud, is unclean for you. Their flesh you shall not eat, and their carcasses you shall not touch.
    Of all that are in the waters you may eat these: whatever has fins and scales you may eat. And whatever does not have fins and scales you shall not eat; it is unclean for you.
    You shall not eat anything that dies of itself; you may give it to the alien who is within your towns, that he may eat it, or you may sell it to a foreigner; for you are a people holy to the Lord your God…
    You shall not boil a kid in its mother’s milk.

The Self Is Your Greatest Enemy

Listen to the Richard Urban Show #72:

Cheon Seong Gyeong 894

What is the greatest obstacle to entering heaven? The self is your greatest enemy. The reason hell and the satanic world were created was because of the awareness of the self. The archangel thought centered on himself. He thought about himself intensely. What is a traitor? You call a person who puts himself before his nation and sovereign, a traitor! Rising up from the paths of a traitor is the summit based on the self. It is the road that leads to hell. For human beings it is the path that leads to ruin. This foundation called the self, and centered on the self, leads to death. (122-20, 1982.10.31)

As heaven is the world of living for others, we must go forth making that notion our first consideration. Those who have the idea of being served will be destroyed.

Synergy of Grace and Effort

Teachings of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

You must participate in God’s great creative undertaking… Although God provides 95 percent of the ideal form necessary to reach perfection, human beings must still complete the remaining 5 percent by their own responsibility. God alone cannot bring about human perfection; each person has the responsibility to make a contribution in perfecting him or herself. (115:66, November 4, 1981)
 
The spirit grows through give and take action between two types of nourishment: life elements of a yang type that come from God and vitality elements of a yin type that come from the physical self. (Exposition of the Divine Principle, Creation 6.3.2)
 
As long as you complain and lament over your situation while just sitting in your chair, you will not make progress. God will not help you. God wants you to make new efforts each day. (327:48, July 24, 2000)
 
God creates to the level of 95 percent and then human beings should add their efforts in accordance with God’s basic rules for creation in order to establish a value standard of 100 percent. In this way, God wants to give human beings the value of having participated in the completion of His Will. (130:19, December 11, 1983)
 
The proportion of five percent is used to indicate that the human portion of responsibility is extremely small when compared to God’s portion of responsibility. Yet for human beings, this five percent is equivalent to one hundred percent of our effort…
    We should recognize how minuscule the human portion of responsibility is in comparison to God’s toil and grace, which is His portion of responsibility. On the other hand, when we consider the fact that over and over again central figures in the providence could not cope with their responsibility, we can appreciate how extremely difficult it was for them to fulfill even this comparatively small portion. (Exposition of the Divine Principle, Predestination 2)
 
No matter how great the saving grace of the cross of Christ, the salvation knocking at our door will be for naught unless we fortify our faith, which is our portion of responsibility. It was God’s responsibility to grant the benefit of resurrection through the crucifixion of Jesus, but to believe or not to believe is strictly one’s own portion of responsibility. (Exposition of the Divine Principle, Creation 5.2.2)
 
We are endowed with the nature to empathize with God. We should develop that nature; then when God rejoices we also will rejoice, and when God is sorrowful we also will be sorrowful. Unless you become a person who can intimately experience God’s deep inner heart, you are in no position to become one with God and live in harmony with God, regardless of how much God loves you. (39:8-9, January 9, 1971)
 
God has borne all the responsibility for His sons and daughters on the road of restoration. But now surely the time has come when we should take on that responsibility. God has borne all that responsibility to help us, but now, by taking on Satan’s attack, we can stand up as God’s sons and daughters. (31:50, April 12, 1970)
 
 
 

Human Beings’ Growth Requires Fulfillment of their Own Portion of Responsibility

Deuteronomy 13

13 1-2 Someday a prophet[a] may come along who is able to perform miracles or tell what will happen in the future. Then the prophet may say, “Let’s start worshiping some new gods—some gods that we know nothing about.” If the prophet says this, don’t listen! The Lord your God will be watching to find out whether or not you love him with all your heart and soul. You must be completely faithful to the Lord. Worship and obey only the Lord and do this with fear and trembling, because he rescued you from slavery in Egypt.

Psalm 18

18 I love you, Lord God,
    and you make me strong.
You are my mighty rock,
    my fortress, my protector,
    the rock where I am safe,
my shield,
    my powerful weapon,
    and my place of shelter.

The Principle of Creation

THE PURPOSE OF CREATION

ORIGINAL VALUE

4.1 T HE PROCESS AND STANDARD FOR
THE DETERMINATION OF ORIGINAL VALUE
How is a being’s original created value determined? Since its original value is determined when it participates
in a four position foundation, and since the center of this four position
foundation is God, it is God who sets the standard for its value. Since
God is absolute, the original value of an object partner determined in
relation to this standard set by God must also be absolute.

THE PROCESS OF THE CREATION OF THE UNIVERSE
AND ITS G ROWING PERIOD

5.1 THE PROCESS OF THE CREATION OF THE UNIVERSE
The universe did not suddenly spring forth complete, without regard
to the flow of time. In fact, its origin and development took an enor-
mous length of time. Therefore, the biblical period of six days for the
completion of the universe is not to be reckoned by the number of lit-
eral sunrises and sunsets. It symbolizes six ordered periods of time in
the creation process.
5.2 THE GROWING PERIOD FOR THE CREATION
When the first day of creation was completed, it states, “There was evening and there was morning, one day.” All things are designed to reach completion only after passing through a set growing period.
5.2.1 THE THREE ORDERED STAGES OF THE G ROWING PERIOD
Everything reaches perfection by passing through
three ordered stages of growth: the formation stage, the growth stage
and the completion stage. Human beings could not fulfill the purpose of their existence because
they fell without completing the three stages of the growing period.
Hence, in their renewed efforts to realize their purpose, human beings
must pass through these three stages. At what stage of the growing period did the first humans fall? They
fell at the top of the growth stage.
5.2.2 T HE REALM OF INDIRECT DOMINION
During the growing period, all beings in the creation grow by
virtue of the autonomy and governance given by God’s Principle. God,
the Author of the Principle, has regard only for the fruits of their
growth which are based on the Principle. In this way, He governs all
things indirectly. We call this growing period the realm of God’s indi-
rect dominion or the realm of dominion based on accomplishments
through the Principle.
All things reach perfection after passing through the growing per-
iod (the realm of indirect dominion) by virtue of the autonomy and gov-
ernance given by God’s Principle. Human beings, however, are created
in such a way that their growth requires the fulfillment of their own por-
tion of responsibility, in addition to the guidance provided by the
Principle. They must exercise this responsibility in order to pass suc-
cessfully through the growing period and reach perfection.
5.2.3 THE REALM OF DIRECT DOMINION
What is the realm of God’s direct dominion and what is its purpose?
Human beings abide in the realm of direct dominion when, as subject
partner and object partner, they unite in the love of God to form a four
position foundation and become one in heart with God. In this realm
they freely and fully share love and beauty according to the will of the
subject partner, thus realizing the purpose of goodness. The realm of
direct dominion is the realm of perfection.

Please Convey What You Want to Convey

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1127

How many times a day do you think
about your portion of responsibility?
You have to remember this many times:
when you eat, when you hold a spoon,
when you wash the dishes, while you go
to the toilet, while you walk…. Adam
and Eve did not think about their por-
tion of responsibility and consequent-
ly came to ruin. We must not become
people who, like Adam and Eve, can-
not fulfill our responsibility and fall. To
become someone who can be restored
and be victorious we have to respect and
consider our portion of responsibility
twenty-four hours a day. (124-103, 1983.1.30)

Richard:  I got a blank page and Stacey got the Rhema above. Together, God is emphasizing our own portion of responsibility.  We need to know what is true, based on God’s word, the Eight Great Textbooks (http://visionroot.org/resources/the-eight-books-of-holy-scripture/), and pursue it centering on our conscience at high noon, where no shadow is cast.

The Person Who Will Serve the Grieving Father

Sun Myung Moon
May 24, 1959

Matthew 23: 1-39

Prayer

In this time, there is nothing that I want to convey. Please convey what You want to convey. Please take dominion over this gathering, as I only want to see things within Your will come to pass.

Please help our minds and bodies not to be subjugated by any other thought, even for this one hour only. Please allow this to be a time when we agree with the things with which the Father agrees, decide on the things on which the Father decides, and harmonize with the things with which the Father harmonizes. Father, please be the cause, and let us be the result. I sincerely pray, Father, that You shape our minds and bodies so that we may move as You move.

Please bless this day. I earnestly pray that You will protect with Your arms of blessing all those lonely members far away who are praying together at this time.

Father, we realize that the passage of the Bible we have read was about the final words of a curse that flowed out of Jesus’ desperate heart as he found himself unable to do anything even, after making every effort. If such words ever come to our ears in these last days, allow us to open our hearts’ doors, bow, and receive them with bowed heads. Father, I sincerely pray that there will be many sons and daughters who will open their ears with the desire to listen and open their eyes with the desire to see.

Please have dominion over those gathered here. Embrace them in Your loving bosom, and advise them with new words. I sincerely pray that this will be a time when we may be embraced in Your bosom.

Let there be no distance between the heart of the one trying to convey the message and the hearts of those who are receiving it. Please let the heart of the one trying to convey move the hearts of those receiving. Let the hearts of those receiving sensitize the heart of the one conveying so that You may directly guide this time and that this hour may be a time of giving and taking with the Father. I sincerely pray that You will, please, allow us to be sanctified offerings. Please allow the spirit of the Trinity to take dominion and guide us so that the forces of darkness will never invade us. I pray all these things in the name of the Lord. Amen.
