Cheon Seong Gyeong 1977

You should all love Korea. God’s pur-
pose in raising Korea should be fulfilled
and Korea should become our home-
land. In the future, the entire Korean
peninsula should become a holy ground.
Shouldn’t we recover the Liaotung penin-
sula in Manchuria that used to be Kore-
an territory? The people of Israel sold
Jesus and then recovered their nation.
Then do you believe that I, who live with
the title of returning Lord, would not be
able to recover our native land? Even if
the Soviet Union were to obstruct my
way, I would push right through it. I
think we should enter negotiations to
recover parts of our native land which
belonged to us during the former Sung
dynasty and which was taken away by
the Soviet Union. (168-49, 1987.8.30)

Richard:  It is possible to regain sovereignty through negotiation, as Rev. Moon points out here.

Thirty thousand couples from 131
nations received the Blessing even
though they had only just been matched
by photograph. This was a historic event.
Could the pope bring this about? Could
the president of the United States do this
kind of thing? It was not I who wished to
do this, but you. You asked me, “Please,
Father, do this for us!” Now that I have
matched you, do you think the couples
suit each other well, or not? The whole
world knows that I carry out the match-
ing using photographs only. The mem-
bers of the Unification Church are intel-
ligent, and that is why they have left the
matching up to me. I do not think I will
do it from next time.

Richard:  It is destiny for all couples to eventually decide to receive the Blessing:

The Heart of Heaven in Relation to Elijah

1 Kings 19: 1-21

After fallen history began, God came forth, holding onto the chosen Israel for a long time, unconcerned about His own great toil. After the lapse of three thousand years, He established King Saul with great hope and expectation. Because Saul could not fulfill his responsibility, however, the original will of God was prolonged through King David to the time of King Solomon. In other words, the will God wanted to realize by establishing Saul was prolonged 120 years.

King Solomon had a heavenly responsibility to build the holy temple by upholding the will of Heaven and to unite his people with it through his leadership. However, we understand that since he too committed sin, he ended up handing the people over to become puppets of Satan.

After King Solomon’s death, the Israelites were divided into the kingdoms of northern Israel and southern Judah by King Jeroboam and King Rehoboam. The Israelites were the chosen people. With one leader centered upon God, they were to act according to his commands. They were the people God had led through a history of toil. We know the sorrowful fact very well that the Israelites were divided into the two kingdoms of north and south, contrary to Heaven’s wish. All twelve tribes of Israel should have united with Heaven centered on one altar, standing on Heaven’s side. Continue reading “King Solomon Should Have Upheld the Will of Heaven”
