Liberate God through True Love

6 “I am the way, the truth, and the life!” Jesus answered. “Without me, no one can go to the Father. 7 If you had known me, you would have known the Father. But from now on, you do know him, and you have seen him.”

We should know where the seeds
of happiness are. We must find them
because we lost them through the Fall.
This is why we find the true God cen-
tered on the Unification Church.
So far, God has been the God of resto-
ration, not the original God. He is filled
with sorrow and is to be pitied. He is not
the God of joy, but of despair. In order
to return to the original state, therefore,
we must liberate the God of restoration –
not with money, not with power, not with
any person, but with true love. (174-248,
1988.3.1)

Richard:  Ture love stems from true lineage in the family.  All couples should marry under God’s Blessing:  http://visionroot.org/resources/marriage/.

From now on, you must live with
True Parents. True Parents are in the
position of the grandparents. They are
also in the position of your mother and
father, living with you, and you are in
the position of the first child. This is a
new and different age. We should real-
ize that, in this way, three generations
will be living together. You must live
with the feeling in your heart that God is
with you, and that True Parents, as your
own parents, are with you. We have now
entered an age in which we cannot think
that God is not there, that He is dead.
(131-97, 1984.4.16)

Richard: “True Parents” refer to Rev. Sun Myung Moon and his bride, Hyun Shil Kang.  See http://visionroot.org/resources/rev-sun-myung-moon/in-search-of-the-origin-of-the-universe/ to understand more about the role of True Parents.

God and Humanity Should Live Together
Rev. Sun Myung Moon
January 11, 1959

John 14: 6-12

“I am the way, the truth, and the life!” Jesus answered. “Without me, no one can go to the Father. If you had known me, you would have known the Father. But from now on, you do know him, and you have seen him.”

Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father. That is all we need.”

Jesus replied:

Philip, I have been with you for a long time. Don’t you know who I am? If you have seen me, you have seen the Father. How can you ask me to show you the Father? 10 Don’t you believe that I am one with the Father and that the Father is one with me? What I say isn’t said on my own. The Father who lives in me does these things.

11 Have faith in me when I say that the Father is one with me and that I am one with the Father. Or else have faith in me simply because of the things I do. 12 I tell you for certain that if you have faith in me, you will do the same things that I am doing. You will do even greater things, now that I am going back to the Father.

Prayer

We cannot help thanking You, Father, for having brought us before the Will and taught us the duties of children and our original value. Please do not let our hearts be our own. Connect them to Yours and make them hearts that can represent Yours. At this time, grant us the ability to feel everything in Your place and to experience the heavenly nature, beyond human nature. Beloved Father, we sincerely desire this.

Father! Having been separated from You, we must meet You again. Make our paths desperate ones. Let us forget all we have and struggle to find the lost Father. We know that we must have an earnest Shim Jung, earnest loyalty, and perform the actions that arise from such. Please forgive us our shortcomings. Father, please forgive us that, although we should offer utmost loyalty to You, we have not been single-minded enough. Continue reading “Liberate God through True Love”

Establish a Flesh and Blood Relationship with True Parents

Cheon Seong Gyeong 218

This is why you are great. You have
all of God’s love and True Parents’ love.
God’s love and True Parents’ love form
the core of their dominion over the uni-
verse. They are the eternal standard for
the essence of a subject. Everything is
governed through love. And thus you
can become the representative of every-
thing. You can represent not only God,
but also your mother and father, your
elder or younger brother, even your elder
or younger sister. You can become such
a representative. If this happens, your
clan will welcome you and all fight-
ing will cease. There will be no oppo-
sition; everyone will be embraced. This
may be simple to say, but it is the core
of the Principle. You must become fully
mature. The reason for going through
spiritual training is to perfect yourself.

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1443

If the world had listened to the words
of True Father, a world of peace, the
Kingdom of Heaven, would have been
established on earth in 1952. Then, what
I am teaching you about now, namely,
the tribal messiahs, would have been
dispatched across the world. Since there
are 800 million Christians in the world,
800 million people would have stood
on True Father’s side, and tribal mes-
siahs would have emerged from towns
of every description, with three genera-
tions from each family all being tribal
messiahs. If this had taken place, the
satanic world would have completely
come to an end. Then a constitution,
which would dictate how the world of
the future should be governed would
have been enacted and followed. That is
why I have not yet taught you in detail
the direction you have to take with your
family. One thing you must remember is
that the era of the great exodus is com-
ing. The families who have followed the
words of True Father, and have become
tribal messiahs and blessed 160 families,
are eligible for registration. Father will
then decide the ancestors; who will be
the first generation, the second, third,
or fourth. Once the ancestors are estab-
lished, kingship will exist. Therefore, we
need to establish the family belonging to
the kingship. (273-46, 1995.10.21)

Richard:  All families need to be registered to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.  That happens during the process of receiving the Blessing.  Thus the grace of the “Cosmic True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humanity Cheon Il Guk Book of Life Registration Blessing” Ceremony:  https://www.sanctuary-pa.org/february-28-2018-blessing#navbar.

Let Us Regain the Victorious Nation
Rev. Sun Myung Moon
January 4, 1959

Genesis 1:27

Acts 1

In the 6,000-year history of the providence of restoration, God has led the dispensation for humankind from the position of the True Parents and cosmic Parents. Jesus and the Holy Spirit did the providential work with the second Israel from the position of the national parents.

Since Jesus represented the mission of the nation and of the church, he stood in the position of chief priest. Thus, you should follow Jesus and become chief priests and true parents of the family who can stand before God. You should know that this is the central point of providence which God must establish on the earth in the last days. Hence, in the position of the parents of the church, Jesus left behind the word of the Second Coming in order to continue toward the position of worldwide parents.

The one who comes with the mission of the worldwide chief priest is the True Parent of the world. That is how it goes. Looking upon this earth today, however, there are no true parents of the cosmos, of the church, nor of the family.

How does one become a true parent? Each one should serve the parent of the church, who is in the position of the chief priest of the church. Without this, one cannot become a parent of the family. In turn, the parent of the church cannot act as such without serving the cosmic parent. Since this providential pattern remains incomplete, God’s Will has not been fulfilled thus far.

True Parents Set the Standard

Cheon Seong Gyeong 579

Walking the streets of Myungdong
in Seoul, one sees young couples being
affectionate. For whom are they doing
that? They say they do that to enjoy their
youth, which they have but once. That’s
fine, but who is the owner of enjoyment?
This is a serious question. How long
can you enjoy life? You do so from your
twenties, but it will not last after you pass
your sixties, seventies, and eighties.
Yet the way of the Unification Church
is different. For what purpose do we eat?
For the sake of the world and to abolish
this evil world. We see in order to clean
up this evil world – not to become a part
of the evil side but to defeat it. How we
hear, think, walk and act is different
from the secular world. (36-71, 1970.11.15)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1410

Of the 36 Couples, the Adam couples
were already married couples, the Noah
couples were engaged but not married,
and the Jacob couples were virgin men
and women. Noah’s family did not fulfill
the Will. When you look at the people
in the world today you see that there are
already married couples, those who are
in informal relationships or are engaged,
and the completely pure single men and
women. From this time on, the foremost
kind of people that True Parents should
be seeking for are not the Adam couples
but the true sons and daughters, in oth-
er words, pure single men and women.
(242-104, 1993.1.1

Richard:  Keeping sexual purity before marriage is a crucial part of spiritual development and receiving Christ.  In fact, you cannot properly receive Christ if you have not kept your sexual purity.

True Parents Day 1966 excerpts
Rev. Sun Myung Moon

As everyone knows, today is Parents Day. Centering on March 1960, we established a new day that did not exist in history, and this is none other than Parents Day. This day should be greeted with rejoicing in the heavens and the earth.

Had our ancestors Adam and Eve not fallen, we would have been celebrating Parents Day already. Because Adam and Eve fell, it was necessary that True Parents come to the earth before we could celebrate Parents Day. Their coming was essential for us to begin celebrating Parents Day, and it was on the standard of this day, and only after true children appeared through the True Parents, that we could begin celebrating Children’s Day. After this, it also became possible to start celebrating a day where we could exercise dominion over all things.

God promised these days to the human ancestors when they had not fallen. Because of the fall, however, we could not receive the days that were the ideal of God’s creation, that is, Parents Day, Children’s Day and Day of All Things. God, too, could not receive the days when He could be joyous and proud as a God who had completed His purpose of creation.

Of course, the fall was when Adam and Eve fell into a situation where they had lost God, but God also lost Parents Day, Children’s Day and Day of All Things. All the celebration days God had hoped to see were taken from Him. Continue reading “True Parents Set the Standard”

Humanity Must Find True Parents

When will the moans from the pain of human beings end? Not until we usher in the day when we find the parents who can love our bodies in place of God. No matter how great you are, you lost the innate physical true parents. Therefore, without true parents, true children cannot exist. This world cannot avoid being a world of sin and evil, a world of hell and pain.

2 Corinthians 1

Praise God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! The Father is a merciful God, who always gives us comfort. He comforts us when we are in trouble, so that we can share that same comfort with others in trouble. We share in the terrible sufferings of Christ, but also in the wonderful comfort he gives. We suffer in the hope that you will be comforted and saved. And because we are comforted, you will also be comforted, as you patiently endure suffering like ours. You never disappoint us. You suffered as much as we did, and we know that you will be comforted as we were.

My friends, I want you to know what a hard time we had in Asia. Our sufferings were so horrible and so unbearable that death seemed certain. In fact, we felt sure that we were going to die. But this made us stop trusting in ourselves and start trusting God, who raises the dead to life. 10 God saved us from the threat of death,[a] and we are sure that he will do it again and again. 11 Please help us by praying for us. Then many people will give thanks for the blessings we receive in answer to all these prayers.

Ezekiel 15

Ezekiel, son of man, what happens to the wood of a grapevine after the grapes have been picked? It isn’t like other trees in the forest, because the wood of a grapevine can’t be used to make anything, not even a small peg to hang things on. It can only be used as firewood. But after its ends are burnt and its middle is charred, it can’t be used for anything. The wood is useless before it is burned, and afterwards, it is completely worthless.

I, the Lord God, promise that just as the wood of a grapevine is burned as firewood, I will punish the people of Jerusalem with fire. Some of them have escaped one destruction, but soon they will be completely burned. And when that happens, you, Ezekiel, will know that I am the LordI will make their country an empty wasteland, because they have not been loyal to me. I, the Lord God, have spoken.

Humankind Wanders In Search of the Truth

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
December 21, 1958

Matthew 7:1-12

The realization of this hope is attainable in the world where spirit and flesh are united. Only when that happens will parents with united spirit and flesh appear for the first time before Heaven and earth. In light of the Principle, the day when a one-dimensional view of history changes to the all-directional historical view will inevitably have to come. For that reason, if humanity takes only a one-sided viewpoint today, it cannot help writhing in agony in the world of sadness.

What do we who are walking the fated path of restoration seek? We must seek our true bodies, which we can love forever, and seek the parents of our bodies. Before we find the parents of our bodies, there is no way that the parents of our minds, the parents of our spirits can appear. The creation of heaven and earth began with external matter. That is why you begin writing from the left side when you write. You do not write from the right side. This is an expression of the manner in which the world of the ideology of creation exists.

When will the moans from the pain of human beings end? Not until we usher in the day when we find the parents who can love our bodies in place of God. No matter how great you are, you lost the innate physical true parents. Therefore, without true parents, true children cannot exist. This world cannot avoid being a world of sin and evil, a world of hell and pain. Continue reading “Humanity Must Find True Parents”

You Have to Pass through the true sons and daughters, True Mother and True Father

Deuteronomy 15

After the Lord your God gives land to each of you, there may be poor Israelites in the town where you live. If there are, then don’t be mean and selfish with your money. Instead, be kind and lend them what they need. Be careful! Don’t say to yourself, “Soon it will be the seventh year, and then I won’t be able to get my money back.” It would be horrible for you to think that way and to be so selfish that you refuse to help the poor. They are your relatives, and if you don’t help them, they may ask the Lord to decide whether you have done wrong. And he will say that you are guilty. 10 You should be happy to give the poor what they need, because then the Lord will make you successful in everything you do.

11 There will always be some Israelites who are poor and needy. That’s why I am commanding you to be generous with them

Jeremiah 51

51 I, the Lord, am sending
    a wind[a] to destroy
the people of Babylonia[b]
    and Babylon, its capital.
Foreign soldiers will come
    from every direction,
and when the disaster is over,
Babylonia will be empty
    and worthless.
I will tell these soldiers,
    “Attack quickly,
before the Babylonians
can string their bows
    or put on their armor.[c]
Kill their best soldiers
    and destroy their army!”
Their troops will fall wounded
    in the streets of Babylon.

Everyone in Israel and Judah
    is guilty.
But I, the Lord All-Powerful,
their holy God,
    have not abandoned them.

Get out of Babylon!
    Run for your lives!
If you stay, you will be killed
when I take revenge on the city
    and punish it for its sins.

Cheon Seong Gyeong  1436-1437

You need to remember that the favor
bestowed by the True Parents is a great
blessing that cannot be expressed in
words alone. It cannot be exchanged for
anything in the whole universe. Your
clans are not an issue, nor are your
wealth and possessions. God does not
want to receive such profane things from
you. He will despise them. You have to
pass through the true sons and daugh-
ters, through True Mother, and through
True Father. It will take three genera-
tions. Whatever you have is returned to
God through the archangel, the son of
the archangel, True Mother, and True
Father. Once they are returned to God,
they return to their original states. After
you have become a part of God’s family,
what you gave will be returned to you.
These are not my words. This is a prin-
ciple of the providence of restoration.

2.2. Tribal messiahship
2.2.1. Mission of tribal messiahs
Now your roots need to be corrected.
What happened to your roots? Through
the Fall, the first father and mother went
along the wrong path. That is why, cen-
tering on the True Parents, we have to
pass through the positions of true sons
and daughters, eldest son and the origi-
nal parent. Your roots need to be turned
upside down. They cannot connect as
they are. Only when they are turned
around 180 degrees and connected, can
you begin anew. What this means is that
you still have a destiny to fulfill, which is
to return to your hometowns to change
your ancestry. (178-99, 1988.6.1)

Jesus Came to Implant the idea of a United Couple

Happy True God’s Day!  (Jan 1, 2017 by the Heavenly Calendar, January 28th, solar)

1 Cor 11:13

13Judge for yourselves: Is it proper for a woman to pray to God with her head uncovered? 14Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him, 15but that if a woman has long hair, it is her glory? For long hair is given to her as a covering. 16If anyone wants to be contentious about this, we have no other practice—nor do the churches of God.
