What are the contents of the truth?
However great anyone may be, they can-
not stand in the place of your parents,
spouse or children. What is the highest
of all truths? Parents, spouses and chil-
dren. There is nothing higher. Then what
is the center of the truth? It is love. From
such a principled viewpoint, what is the
center of the highest truth? People say
that God is the Original Being of truth,
goodness, love and life. What does this
mean? They all mean the same. The truth
cannot be established without love and
life. Those who want to become people
who can talk about the real truth must
have the will and desire for the truth
within their lives. Here, desire stands in
a reciprocal position to your standard of
personality. So what is the nucleus? As
the Original Being of life, love and truth,
what kind of being is God? He is the
Father and simultaneously the Mother
of humankind. Parents are the nucleus.
(21-183, 1968.11.20)

How did Satan manage to oppose
God for six thousand years? Until now
Satan has been holding the Principle
in front of God. Satan says, “God, can
You punish me? If You want to punish
me You must destroy heaven and earth
first. When You created me, didn’t You
intend to love me with the love belong-
ing to the completion level, even though
it would be only a love meant for an
archangel?” Even the archangel must
receive love that belongs to the com-
Book 8 • Sin and Restoration Through Indemnity 1156
pletion level even though it is the type
of love befitting the archangel. So, the
archangel would ask God, “When did
You love me at the completion level?”
Even God gets trapped at this point.
Did God love the archangel at the
completion level? No, He was not able
to. Only after God has loved the arch-
angel in the Garden of Eden, in the free
heaven and earth, with the love belong-
ing to the completion level, is God’s
responsibility fulfilled. Otherwise, God
is trapped and He cannot move. (37-254,

Selected Passages from the Words of Rev. Sun Myung Moon about Home Church

Today’s Word magazine, September 1981 p. 4

Home church is the greatest gift God and True
Parents can give mankind. It has never existed
before and will never recur in the future. When
you make this gift your own by fulfilling it, you
will definitely become a son or daughter of God.
For the entire 60 years of my life, I have been
preparing this precious gift for you, and now I
freely give it to you. You can make it yours in six
months. This is an incredible opportunity. (4/15/79)


Your home church members will see visions of
me and also of you. When they are open like that,
then they will realize they are to live as one family.
Love will open their eyes. When you link that love to
one home church and it connects it to another and
so on, it will form an unbreakable chain of love
which no one, not even God, can cut. This link will
be sustained directly by the spirit world. The home
church course is the miracle of miracles. The
fact that I could announce the providence of
home church within 24 years is a miracle: compare
that to the little that Christians have achieved in
2,000 years. All the providential events are culmi-
nated in home church, the center of the dispensa-
tion. (5/1/79)


Home church is a very precious blessing for
you, because through it I am giving you a
condition to go beyond the fall of man. You are
an invincible force, advancing like a tidal wave to
cleanse your home church, undeterred by any
opposition. Your certification as a man or woman
of God will be signed by the hostile people you
meet in home church. You should feel that home
church is a cause for gratitude, not a burden.
Home church is a short-cut to the Kingdom of
Heaven. (5/27/79)


When I say that home church is the base of the
Kingdom of Heaven, I mean that it is a launching
pad like the pads at Cape Kennedy. Each of you is
building a rocket: to construct the engine on the
base is the most difficult task, and then you can
build your way up and up to the capsule, where
you can stay. Once you have finished constructing
it, all you have to do is push the button and lift
off. ( 1/1/80)


Home church is the arena where we will go
through all things God has said and done and
through which He wants us to inherit His broken
heart. (4/6/80)


Once every several thousand years. the rope
passes overhead. The Unification Church is that
rope and we are the ones who grabbed it. It is a
once-in-a-million opportunity, so would you just
casually grab it with one hand? You are winding it
around not only your body but around
your 360 homes. The rope will come
down and take root; this is home
church.
You should think of home church
as your lover and love the people
there more than you have ever loved
anyone in the past. (5/18/80)

Romans 4

Are these blessings meant for circumcised people or for those who are not circumcised? Well, the Scriptures say that God accepted Abraham because Abraham had faith in him. 10 But when did this happen? Was it before or after Abraham was circumcised? Of course, it was before.

11 Abraham let himself be circumcised to show that he had been accepted because of his faith even before he was circumcised. This makes Abraham the father of all who are acceptable to God because of their faith, even though they are not circumcised. 12 This also makes Abraham the father of everyone who is circumcised and has faith in God, as Abraham did before he was circumcised.

Ecclesiastes 7

A good reputation
    at the time of death
is better than loving care
    at the time of birth.[a]
It’s better to go to a funeral
    than to attend a feast;
funerals remind us
    that we all must die.
Choose sorrow over laughter
because a sad face
    may hide a happy heart.

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
Feb 10, 1981

 

The title I will speak on today is “History of the Providence of Restoration through Indemnity.” People in general, people in the secular world will not know what this is about.

Today, we refer to God’s providence as the providence of salvation. It is easy to talk about how He conducts His providence of salvation, but until now no one knew this content. Only God knew it.

So why was it that only God knew? When human beings fell, they fell without knowing. They fell without knowledge and in ignorance. For this reason, God has been conducting His spiritual work throughout human history so that human beings could escape from the realm of ignorance. A person who is in ignorance, who is in the environment of ignorance cannot just leave by claiming to know everything. There is the fallen world with problems a person cannot just solve and leave.

Because human beings fell, they live with the results of the fall.

In the providence of salvation, God exists and He conducts His providence to save humanity from the world of ignorance, the world of the fall. And the realm that has fallen into the results that are opposite to the path that God goes, the realm centered on Satan that is opposite to God, always obstructs. So we cannot go this way without resolving all the things that obstruct us. This was where indemnity was absolutely necessary in the course of history. When a person commits a crime and goes to prison, he must pay for his crime or set some other condition to be released. Then he needs to go through a process of defense before this can be officially acknowledged. Only then can he be released. So the term indemnity refers to the absolute need to correct things that have gone wrong in the course of history. Continue reading “How God has Worked to Save Humankind”
