True Freedom Always Brings Joy to God

Cheon Seong Gyeong 880

You must invest yourself and then forget. If among a hundred members there is someone who is wearing poorer clothes than your sons and daughters, you should not be able to sleep. You should want to give him clothes. That is the heart of God, the heart of a parent. What is the leading system of thought of the Unification Church? It is to have a parental heart, wear the clothes of a servant, shed sweat for earth, tears for humankind and blood for heaven. What is heaven? It is the world of love to which you bring your children. You receive love and say that you will give it to the entire universe. I love God. I know everything right through from the spirit world to the physical world. (296-120, 1998.11.3)

Just as the love within the parent-child relationship is cherished in the physical world, if you live with such love on earth, you will attend God as your Parent and live your life in heaven as His child. (214-268, 1991.2.3)

Original Substance of the Divine Principle

The Human Fall

Freedom and desire allow us to serve God and build a good world.
God did not intervene in the Fall to maintain His absoluteness and the perfection of the Principle, so that He alone is the creator, and to give us humans the opportunity to govern over the creation by fulfilling our own responsibility.

What is the universe? It is like God’s visible body. It is an extension of God’s being. This is why the idea emerges that we can truly love. In other words, loving the universe is a very real experience. You stroke your hair like this, don’t you? When you get some dirt on your clothes, you brush it off, right? Why do you do this? Because they form a part of you. Because they are one with you, you have that attitude. From now on, you should bring God into the middle of your heart and build a unified world where your mind is one, your body is one, and all things are one. (86-173, 1976.3.28)

Christ at his Second Advent is coming to save humanity. Once the heavenly standard has been established, God is ready to strike. He takes the offensive. That does not mean that He kills His foes by executing them in the style of Stalin; instead, He makes them surrender at once. He must make Satan submit to Him, firstly through His ideology, secondly through His citizenry, thirdly through His sovereignty, and fourthly through His territory. Everyone desires to have ideals, friends, power, and money, and these four items represent the four that have been listed above. (12-169, 1963.3.16)

Richard: God’s plan of salvation is practical and follows natural law and the principles that God created. We are not going to float up into the sky ‘when Christ returns’. No, rather, we will work together to build the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.
The Unification Principle and Eight Textbooks presented by Rev. Sun Myung Moon compose the New Truth, the ideology. Like minded people, working together towards God’s will are the citizens. When you and I work to influence others with this New Truth, and with love, that is God’s sovereignty. Finally, our possessions, dedicated to God, comprise the possessions of the Kingdom of God.

The Human Fall

Sin is a violation of heavenly law which is committed when a person forms a common base with Satan and sets a condition allowing give and receive action with him.
There are four categories of sin, and there are four fallen natures that we all need to work and reverse to become godly people. There is no freedom without responsibility. Freedom did not cause the fall.

You should understand love. The purpose for every existence is love. You must keep this unchanging principle in your heart that tells you to pursue love and exist for love. Birds fly around, chirping, delighting in each other’s company, all because of love, and the positive and negative poles of magnets attract each other and stick fast, all because they want to become one in love. People always seek to meet their other half to become one with them. (67-159, 1973.6.1)

The 72 Couples are like the children, the descendants of the 36 Couples, while the 36 are the central couples as well as the ancestors. Our view is that our ancestors failed to fulfill God’s will because Cain and Abel, the two sons in the first family in history, failed to become one in heart, thus deferring the fulfillment of God’s will. In view of the fact that the foundation of the family, in which the brothers Cain and Abel should have united, was not established, who then are the 72 Couples? Seventy-two is thirty-six twice. Thus, the 72 Couples representing the children of the 36 Couples comprise 36 Abel and 36 Cain couples. They are the representative couples chosen to restore through indemnity that which the historical ancestors failed to accomplish: the complete unity of Abel and Cain. (84-144, 1976.2.22)

God gave the commandment to Adam and Eve. not to eat the fruit, meaning not to have sex before God Blessed them in marriage, in order to prevent the Fall.The commandment was only necessary while Adam and Eve were immature; during the growing period.
Because of the fall, we all came under Satan’s dominion, as the ‘father of this world’.
We need to be liberated by changing our lineage to God’s side through the Blessing of marriage, and also reverse the right of ownership and the realm of heart.

    You should become sons of filial piety, daughters-in-law of filial piety, then saints of filial piety. Next, you have to become sons of filial piety on the family level before God, centering on purity, pure lineage, and pure love. Your whole family must become children of filial piety, not just you as individuals.
    Then become families of patriots who are filial, families of saints who are filial, and families of divine sons and daughters who are filial. From that position, you should become representatives of the owner, representatives who are fully capable of becoming princes and princesses who can inherit the kingship of heaven from the individual level up to the level of the cosmos. You should always train yourselves that way. That is what is meant by an owner of Cheon Il Guk. (2003.3.12, Hannam-dong International Training Center)

    I want to ask you one thing: Have you been walking the way of restoration through indemnity? Have you lived this way? Our destiny is to restore the first son and though the road to that restoration, which lies ahead of us, is blocked, have you made desperate efforts, have you struggled with the resolve to go over that ridge at any cost? You have not. You have not tried. You have been just following me. For what reason have you been following me? Because you liked me. Why did you follow me? You have been following me not because you were motivated by the Principle, but simply because you liked me. (138-134, 1986.1.19)

The Human Fall

The fallen Angel Lucifer is the serpent described in the Bible in Genesis.  He committed sin with his sexual part with Eve, committing the sin of fornication, an unprincipled sexual relationship.  Eve then tempted and committed the sin of fornication with Adam.
Angels were created by God as servants, and to praise and worship God.
Adam and Eve could fall because the power of love is greater than the power of the Principle.  However, with faith in God’s one and only commandment not to eat the fruit, not to have a premature sexual relationship, they could have avoided this fate.

Home Church is the place where families begin to be liberated on an international level. It is the place where we can declare the starting point of the ideal love and ideal life of unfallen Adam and Eve. To fulfill this, I have initiated the tribal messiah mission. Jesus came to find a family. You have all heard of Home Church, right? The tribe of Cain and the tribe of Abel must become one. In terms of Jesus, Joseph’s tribe and John the Baptist’s tribe should have become one and formed one family. When the family is set up in this way, Satan cannot invade. If the original standard of the family is set up, embracing all tribes, then the failed family in Israel can be restored to an unfallen standard for the first time. Tribal messiahs and Jesus will witness this. (235-111, 1992.8.29)

You must stand in a position more earnest than life. That is why even when you are hungry, you should still pray. Even while fasting, you must invest yourself. You must invest God’s love and the power of your life into all the nations. As you do so, God will never answer your questions, and He will pretend that He does not see what you are doing. God cannot interfere. He will not interfere until your investment is complete. What is the human portion of responsibility? It means attaining completion on your own, doesn’t it? Similarly, when you go forward with prayer, God does not interfere. It is really strange, but God sometimes even opposes you. (180-195, 1988.8.22)
Richard: This shows the importance of the human portion of responsibility, which God does not interfere with.
