The paths of the North and the South
are crossing now. Because the two are
going in opposite directions, one want-
ing to go south and the other wanting
to go north, their goals are different.
The issue of how to unite is a serious
one. Who is to take the lead in this mis-
sion? The North will object if the South
takes the lead, and the South will object
if the North takes the lead. Breakdown
will occur again if each one adheres
to its own way. The question is how to
approach this issue. There must be a
Korean who loves North Korea more
than anyone else in the South. That is
the only solution. The plan for unifica-
tion can come about only through some-
one who is more loyal than anyone else
in the South and someone who is more
loyal than anyone else in the North. Is
there any other way? There is not. (61-125,
1972.8.13)

All true created beings in the world
possess ideal love, the love of original
nature, centered on God, and so we must
become families based on absolute cou-
ples, children, siblings and parents. This
is the second Jardim declaration. As well
as absolute faith, love and obedience,
God’s nature includes the qualities of
being absolute, unique, unchanging and
eternal. Since these are God’s attributes,
it naturally follows that He desires His
object partners also to possess these four
attributes. Moreover, since He wishes
for His object partners to be superior to
Him, He would look for more absolute-
ness, more uniqueness, more eternality
and more immutability in His object
partner.

The Path In Search of the Original Homeland

Rev. Sun Myung Moon July 5, 1959

Because of this, everyone is in a pitiable state. The time has come for a man to stand before humankind and teach them how pitiable they are. This is needed. The time has come for a leader who can command the people to be concerned about themselves. The time has come for a leader who can shed light on how lamentable it is to be in such a pitiable state and how the people must weep over this, clinging to Heaven and earth. He must lead them to think about what their end is, where are they going, and how they can triumph over the ever-changing environment and reach the end of the journey.

Revolutionary new cultures have appeared during certain historical periods. The people who led them had a new ideology, a new purpose, new happiness, and new freedom. These people toiled to stop the patterns of the times in which they lived and to shed light upon the pitiable state of man. They were people of mission who influenced their respective times and were needed during a specific era or age.

Our era is the age of a new world. Therefore, something new must appear which can galvanize the people of the world and say, “You should be an example for humanity. You should feel sorry for remaining as you are and not knowing where to go.”

Jesus came two thousand years ago and said that he was the son of God. The Jews, who took pride in being the chosen people, could not apprehend the appearance of the Messiah, in spite of the fact that they had eagerly awaited him. They had received the benefits of numerous prophets in their long historical course of four thousand years. Yet only after they sent Jesus to the cross did they realize that he was the Messiah, and they were placed in a sorrowful position.

We call Jesus the Savior. What kind of savior? A confident savior who could say, “I will take your sorrow upon myself.” He said, “Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matt. 11:28) We should be grateful for those words. Those were the words of the greatest prophet, for the sake of humanity.

God’s Determination

CSG 2116

Section 6. Our Original
Hometown and the Way to Enter
the Kingdom of Heaven
6.1. Hometown is a world of the
original creation
We are at a point of time when we
cannot hope to achieve world peace or
one unified world using human power,
wisdom, culture or anything else. Under
these circumstances, what is the main
problem? I believe that answering the
question as to whether God exists or
not is the most important issue. Once
all humankind clearly understands all
about God’s existence, they will clearly
understand the direction of God’s will.
When they understand this, the world
will become one world, a world of peace
and an ideal world. (56-131, 1972.5.14)

Richard:  It is really necessary to help everyone understand the nature of God and His Purpose and His Will.  We can know this clearly through the Divine Principle and the words of Jesus and Rev. Sun Myung Moon.

Proverbs 6:3

My child, suppose you agree
to pay the debt of someone,
    who cannot repay a loan.
Then you are trapped
    by your own words,
    and you are now in the power
    of someone else.
Here is what you should do:
    Go and beg for permission
    to call off the agreement.
Do this before you fall asleep
    or even get sleepy.
Save yourself, just as a deer
or a bird
    tries to escape
    from a hunter.
