The people we need are the True Par-
ents. What started from the false par-
ents must be restarted by the True Par-
ents. The false parents are the ones who
inherited false love and false lineage
starting from false love. This must be
reversed. Then, how can we inherit true
life and true lineage centered on the love
of the True Parents? In other words, the
issue is how to inherit the original seed
again since we inherited the wrong seed
of life.

Cheong Seong Gyeong 1122

When Adam fulfills his portion of
responsibility he stands in the posi-
tion of the first son. Then he can enter
the position of true parents. This is the
restoration of parenthood. It is the posi-
tion of the king, the king of heaven and
earth.

We Who Are Walking a Life Course

Sun Myung Moon
September 6, 1959

1 Peter 1: 21-25

That is where the truth is connected. That is where the foundation of truth implants its roots. Truth does not implant its roots in glamorous high society. The roots of truth have to be implanted first in the humble alleys of a culture. The roots of truth are not to be implanted in Heaven, but on this fallen earth. The roots of truth are not to be found in the Kingdom of Heaven but at the bottom of hell. Heaven’s new standard of life will be established the day the roots of truth are implanted there, the day that the one who can communicate with Heaven appears.

Therefore, although we establish the truth in an ideal way and as our hope, the course to pursue it requires us to search in the back alleys. We search the back alley of life, mind and love as we look upon the symbol of life. We have to understand that this is the basis for seeking the highest spiritual attainment. A person who is living a life of devotion may be happy from the original standpoint, but he struggles in the back alleys of faith and sings this song in his life. This is the misery of religious life.

What is the origin and motivation of its reform and the creation of a new culture in a nation? When the mind explodes within you which can cling to a miserable person and cry for him, the flames of new hope burn. The historical flames will burn. For this country to be prosperous, for this country to have hope, we must create an environment in which we can shed tears on behalf of miserable people with a pure and sincere heart. Then this country will conquer the world.

What was Jesus’ situation on the earth? He did not praise the value of Jehovah from the absurd position of seeking the beauty of some fantastic ideal world. Although his internal contents were like that, his life was that of a prince in hell. This is what you have to understand. In his life, he was a royal prince in hell. He exerted himself more than anyone else to advocate and pioneer the truth. When he learned one thing, he was concerned about ten things. Although the people of this earth feel one type of pain, that of solving their problems and those of their own generation, Jesus felt countless types of pain. You have to understand that he led the life of a prince in hell.

Even when he entered hell, he had the authority to conquer it. He did not attain it freely. If he judged, punished and sentenced sinners without having had the same experience himself, God could not be a true God. If the leader of Korea punishes a violator of the law from a position of serious empathy, this country may survive. He should never say, “What you do has nothing to do with me.”

Jesus came to this earth with such a feeling in his heart. He came with this power and told people to love him. Why did he tell them to love him? What he meant to say is, “You who love only temporarily! No matter how precious you may be, you should abandon all that you have and love me. Then God will love you on a higher level.” Although he appeared in a humble manner, the words he spoke were completely the opposite. He could not have spoken those words if he did not have some inner quality of confidence and pride. Because of this Jesus was able to be the Messiah.

 

This Will Become an Unforgivable Sin Before Heaven

Reply to this email and I will send you a link to a recording of Saturday’s Unification Principle Seminar.

Cheon Seong Gyeong 261

Religious leaders prostrate them-
selves and pray in an effort to receive
blessings, but I have never prayed to
receive any blessing. The Old Testament
Age was the age of finding God’s people
by establishing all things; the New Testa-
ment Age was the age of finding the Par-
ents by sacrificing the sons and daugh-
ters; and the Completed Testament Age
is the age of liberating God by sacrificing
the Parents’ family. This means bring-
ing the Original Parents to this earth
and living with them for thousands of
years. The Korean folk song about the
moon and the laurel tree sings of bring-
ing parents and living with them for
tens of thousands of years. This Korean
tale contains a revelation: “…wanting to
bring the heavenly parents to earth and
live with them for tens of thousands of
years….” Whenever I think about this
song, I cannot escape the intense long-
ing in my heart.
Don’t ever feel bad about having been
born as a Korean. In the past, you might
have felt pity for yourself for having been
born Korean, saying “How is it that I was
born in a thatched-roof hut among these
poor Korean people, although Korea
boasts of its five-thousand-year histo-
ry?” The Korean song that goes “Moon,
Oh moon, you bright moon” sings of
building a thatched cottage and living
there for thousands of years. I do not
feel happy when I hear this song. Only a
thatched-roof cottage? How can we ful-
fill the wishes of the people there? How-
ever, its reference to “build a thatched
cottage, bring my parents there and
live with them there for thousands of
years” must refer to the ideal parents of
humanity. The song connects with the
Christian belief in the Second Coming
and with the belief in a savior to come
that is present among all peoples and
nations. (85-80, 1976.3.2)

Cheon Seong Gyeong 1315

The year 1970 saw the beginning of
a great mobilization. The Blessed Fami-
lies from ten nations around the world
were called to Korea, in order to restore
Canaan. They were called to Korea and
became completely united while over
here. You must know that this was after
the Blessing of the 777 Couples. Wasn’t
that Blessing held in 1970? In mak-
ing such a foundation, the Unification
tribe from across the world representing
ten nations came to participate. Going
beyond the number nine, which signifies
formation, growth and completion, the
number ten is the number of God, and it
also corresponds to the number twelve.
That is why the ten nations must be con-
nected providentially. (69-237, 1974.1.1)

We Who Are Walking a Life Course

Sun Myung Moon
September 6, 1959

1 Peter 1: 21-25

The mind acts according to the principles of the universe. It wants to move without limits toward goodness. This is like a magnetic needle pointing to north and south. The principle of nature would never lose the direction and circumvent goodness. There is no such phenomenon. The human mind also seeks to move toward a certain purpose. We have to understand clearly that the mind which is orientated toward life moves through the heart, desires to distill out the truth, desires to unite with the whole, and desires to live in harmony with the doctrine of the whole. This mind is the foundation upon which Heaven can reveal the escape route.

We who are fleeing must fight if we are to maintain a heart which is orientated toward the heavenly nature. We have to fight. We have to understand clearly that depending on whether or not we reach the goals of escape, we may or may not attain salvation. This is the process we are walking through. How should we run?

Ladies and gentlemen, think about this carefully. When we are in a fight, we have to fight in a way that God desires, use the strategies that God desires, and reach the point which God desires. It is inevitable that we have to establish values which comply with the program of the sponsor.

Ladies and gentlemen, please reflect once more upon what state you are in. Since we cannot deny that we acting in a world of purpose and we are chained to that world, the crucial question we must address is what our situation is in the escape route of our life. There are those who are not awake, even when layers of the enemies’ ranks are blocking the path before them. They are only dreaming about their situation, or they do not know that they are in a deep sleep. There are those who have fallen from fatigue in the middle of the path they should run on. There are all kinds of cases.

You should find yourself again. You who are participating here today should set the standard of heart, and, based upon that, discern your position and state of being and analyze yourself. Your mind yearns for something, yet without clearly understanding, you feel uneasy and fearful. For this reason, not only would you feel through natural phenomena that you should not be in the situation you are in; you will also sense it through all the things you see around you. Hence, even through these things you will have to understand the situation and state that you are in.

If you can become spiritually open, you will see that countless religious people of the distant past are crying out before the people. Many spirits are running by your side today. They are trying to awaken you by saying, “Let’s go; enemies are coming.” Yet your ears do not hear these voices; your eyes do not see; your bodies do not sense this. This is how tragic the situation is. There is nothing more mournful than this. This is not something that only you will lament over. This will become an unforgivable sin before Heaven, who is trying to connect the value of existence to the world of the ideals of the whole.

The Absolute Being is the Ultimate Goal

Cheon Seong Gyeong 259

Which do you think is easier to
accept: my referring to God as the Par-
ent, or your referring to me as the Parent?
You do not know how much I have suf-
fered. You do not know how many walls
there have been and how complicated it
has been. Until now, myriads of people
have struggled on that path and all have
fallen into the pit. When you joined the
Unification Church and began to under-
stand me from the perspective of theory,
it must have been easy for you to say, “Ah,
he is the True Parent.” Then, which do
you think is greater, the joy I felt when I
realized that God is the True Parent or the
joy you felt when you realized it? I could
utter the word “Father” only after having
gone through life-threatening suffering,
but you were taught everything without
suffering. This is why you can say, “Okay,
I have come to know the True Parents; so
what?” Who would rejoice more? Which
do you think should be greater, the joy I
felt when I met God in the parent-child
relationship or the joy you feel when you
meet me? Although my encounter came
only after suffering, your encounter took
place without suffering, so you should be
more joyful. If I had paid hundreds of
billions of dollars, wouldn’t you be you
happy that you paid nothing? What have
you paid? When you come and listen to
the Principle you can understand every-
thing. So, when you hear “True Parents,”
you merely say “So that’s how it is!” and
understand everything. (116-121, 1981.12.27)

Cheong Seong Gyeong 706

God knows that the way of the Prin-
ciple cannot be walked without loving
one’s enemies. Would God let humanity
perish in the judgment of the Last Days?
No. He is the Parent of humankind. The
so-called judgment by fire spoken of in
Christianity today is not a literal one. (31-
165, 1970.5.24)

Let Us Fathom the Heart of Heaven

Sun Myung Moon
September 13, 1959

Matthew 10:24-39

The title of the sermon I am about to give is “Let Us Fathom the Heart of Heaven.” I will speak briefly upon this topic.

The most lonely person in the world is someone who has no one who recognizes or understands him. There is nothing more lonely and sad than to have no one who understands you. You may think that you fully understand yourself, but if you examine yourself objectively, you probably must admit that you do not.

We all have minds. Our mind is driving us toward a certain direction and toward a greater truth every minute of the day, transcendent of time and space. It is probably difficult to explain why this internal action has not taken root in us, although we sense that it has continued throughout history.

You may want to ask others to understand you and believe in you. You probably cannot deny that all your thoughts and convictions have been for the sake of connecting to a certain reality. If you then ask others to believe in you and trust you, you should ask whether or not you have first gained control over yourself and secured a position that is connected to the great purpose of Heaven. The answer is probably no.

Given this, how can we determine our own value today? We cannot accomplish a great purpose unless we first have the desire to become the subject partner who can move all things. We must examine ourselves as we put this desire into action and criticize ourselves with cold objectivity. If there is a God who seeks to fulfill the purpose of Heaven, then we cannot come before Him proudly without having done these things. Based on our own rational reasoning, we cannot deny that we cannot have pride in front of Heaven.

Who are our faith, desires and ideals for? Although they may seem to be for our own selves, in truth they do not have any relationship with us. Because human beings are in such a sad situation, although we may possess ideals and desires in our hearts, they clash with the sad reality of ourselves. We know through our reading of the Bible that this is why prophets and saints in the past advocated that we seek to embody ideals in our lives and be in harmony with them. They struggled bitterly to realize this goal, yet they could not accomplish it. We are awaiting the day this goal can be reached.

Everything in the universe, including human beings, was created to be in reciprocal relationships. If there is Heaven, then there is also earth. If there is a mind, then there is also a body. When we ponder things from this worldview, we find that if there is a movement of the heart, there must also be some subject partner who can move the mind. Whether you call this absolute being God, the Creator, or a deity is not important. At the very least, no one can deny that such a being must exist. If there is an absolute being, that absolute being has to have some connection to our minds in our daily lives as history flows. This is why human beings are capable of wishing for truer and better things.

Before we criticize or make a judgment based upon some reality, we first have to make some reciprocal condition based upon which to make the comparison. To make a logical argument, we need some basis of assumption first.

For this reason, in order to understand ourselves and explain ourselves fully, we need some reciprocal condition upon which to criticize and judge. This is the absolute being who is the object of worship in our faith. When we enter into a relationship with Him and compare ourselves and evaluate ourselves based on Him, we can understand where we stand. Thus, if we have minds, we have first to feel that there is some absolute being or some subject partner who governs our minds and moves us.

The absolute being is the ultimate goal which religions and philosophies should reach. The countless sages and saints sought longingly for the absolute being with whom they could build an eternal relationship of heart and with whom they could live, on whom they could base all their thoughts, worldviews and ideologies. Such are the numerous people who seek religion. That is what they are looking for.

Truly Peaceful World of the True Parent UN

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
June 1, 2009
Seoul, Korea

Beloved families who have recently received the new lineage of the absolute, unique, unchanging, and eternal God through the Blessing, and citizens of God’s kingdom of Cheon Il Guk!

We are celebrating a truly special occasion in this absolute providential era. It is deeply meaningful because we are commemorating the coronation and the golden wedding anniversary of the True Parents, the king of kings; the publication of my autobiography, and the fifty-fifth anniversary of the founding of the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity.

Today is June 1, a day on which we are holding a new historic event through which the establishment of the new, Truly Peaceful World of the True Parent UN is proclaimed before all of heaven and earth. For these joyful occasions and days, let us all offer applause in gratitude to God, our Heavenly Father’s who governs the life, death, fortune, and misfortune of all creation’s for giving us these beautiful and dazzling seasons and days.

During this season, vibrant with life, God is beckoning all of you as lords of creation to freely participate, with all other created beings, in the creation of new life. He is blessing us to blossom beautifully like flowers and to live lives that are as bright as the sun and as clear as the waters of a stream.

The Results of God’s Providence in History

Dear friends who are receiving Heaven’s love anew: On three occasions, once on January 15 and twice on January 31, we held the historic Coronation for the New Authority of the Liberation of God, the King of Kings, and our golden anniversary celebration. January 31 saw one such ceremony held at the Cheon Jeong Peace Palace in Korea, representing the East, and another held in New York City, in the United States, representing the West. In this way, we set the record of offering this historically unprecedented and never-to-be-repeated providential event to Heaven in two different locations on the same day.

In the period since April, my wife and I commemorated the fiftieth occasion of the day of our Holy Wedding. In 1960, young students on the Korean peninsula were crying out in resistance to the dictatorship [of Korean President Seung-man Rhee]. On the sixteenth day of the third month of the lunar calendar in that year, my wife and I received Heaven’s seal and embarked on the arduous courses of the providence of restoration that the True Parents, True Teachers, and True King and Queen of humankind must take.

How could I even begin to explain the path of the providence of restoration through indemnity that my wife and I have had to follow for the past fifty years in order to finally bring complete liberation and freedom to God and to attend Him as the king of kings? Many years from now, historians will verify and record what I cannot explain at this time.

You are probably not aware of this, but there is profound providential significance in True Parents’ coronation and golden wedding anniversary. Due to the Fall of humankind’s first ancestors, God’s true lineage was lost, and history came under the dominion of Satan’s false bloodline. I am sure you have learned about this reality through studying the Principle.

This corrupted bloodline has been a facet of history. Isnt it because of this that the physical world and even the spiritual world became completely mired in antagonistic, confrontational, good-versus-evil, Cain & Abel relationships? Nobody has been able to find a resolution to this tragedy, and history’s problems have gone unresolved to this day.

Times are now changing, however. The doors to the realm of complete unity between Cain and Abel are being opened on the occasions of True Parents’ coronation and golden wedding anniversary. We have entered the realm of grace in which human beings can be restored to the level of completion and perfection, where they can inherit and share the original nature of God’s heart – in other words, to the originally intended human state, without any trace of the Fall.

In terms of O [correct answer] and X [incorrect answer], we have entered the new era when the good governance of God, who is in the position of O, can completely embrace and digest, without leaving a trace of it behind, the evil governance of Satan, who is in the position of X. The new era is beginning in which the Kingdom of Heaven on earth and in heaven is substantially spreading out before your very eyes.

The Round Ball Peace Cup Tournament

On this occasion, which has a special significance, my wife and I celebrated our coronation and golden wedding anniversary and successfully held the Round Ball Peace Cup Cain-Abel Cosmic Harmony Tournament, for thirteen days starting on April 21. One day it will become a festival of peace for all humanity, even surpassing the Olympic Games.

The Atletico Sorocaba soccer club from Brazil contributed greatly to this first tournament by laying aside everything else to come here at True Parents’ invitation. Sorocaba won the FA Cup championship in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 2008. During its short time in Asia, it played against four teams, representing North Korea, South Korea, Japan, and China. It displayed an excellent standard of skill and demonstrated the soul of Latin American soccer. Would you please give a warm round of applause to encourage the Sorocaba team!

Ladies and gentlemen! I would like to offer to Heaven this precious new ceremony by reading with you now the message from Heaven that I proclaimed in January at the Coronation of God, the King of Kings and thereafter at our golden anniversary celebration. Please engrave the meaning of today’s event upon your hearts.

God Has Been Seeking for True Parents

Citizens of God’s kingdom of Cheon Il Guk who love peace as True Parents do!

This is truly a precious and joyful day.

Let us all celebrate without reserve this historic and providential day and sing praises to God, our eternal True Parent, of His glory and nobility. On this solemn occasion, hundreds of billions of those living in the spirit world have descended and are here with us to congratulate and celebrate this blessed day.

This is the day God has yearned for ever since He created the universe. For tens of thousands of years, since the day those whom He created as His children, Adam and Eve, stained the heavenly lineage and concealed themselves in the dark, God has waited while enduring inexpressible pain and sorrow. He has waited impatiently for the day He could ascend to the throne of the King of Kings, to be able to embrace His lost children and the creation again and live in joy for all eternity in the sacred reign of peace in the peace kingdom.

Ladies and gentlemen, God is and has always been the King of Kings, even before He initiated the Creation. The heavenly way, however, dictates that after completing all aspects of the Creation, God must manifest substantially as the King of Kings who reigns over the world of physical phenomena, the sphere of the objects of God’s love. That is why, motivated by true love, God sought and found the True Parent of the substantial, physical world, who was to become His representative and heir.

Although we are overwhelmed by the grace of having received Heaven’s seal, my wife and I truly feel joy at being able to stand here today as God’s direct representatives and hold this coronation for the King of Kings and our golden anniversary celebration. At the same time, I am deeply sorry before Heaven; I have reached my ninetieth year of life, yet I have been unable to fully restore the 6.5 billion people of the world to God.

A Revolution of True Love

Citizens of Cheon Il Guk who truly love God! Time is running out. Heaven will no longer wait for us. God is working with His authority as the King of Kings through His representatives, the earthly True Parents, to establish a new heavenly law and restore the world. It is time to accelerate this true love revolution. Therefore, on this solemn occasion, I will proclaim to all of heaven and earth an outline of the new heavenly law, by which humankind and all things of creation will regain their rightful positions and be governed.

First, this era, which is gradually bringing us toward the year 3000, will be the era of revolutionary change after the coming of heaven. In this new era, God will no longer be captive to the principles of restoration through indemnity; it will be the time when the King of Kings rules the spiritual and physical worlds with His rightful authority.

It will be the era of providential refuge [from evil], during which the earth will return to its original state, with the realm of the Pacific Rim serving as a central axis. People will no longer be beyond the influence of the era of the new way of Heaven and of the new heavenly law. Therefore, you must lead a transparent life with your every action being as clear as crystal.

Second, we must accomplish a revolution in educating all people on the value of absolute sexual ethics, that is, on the constitution of Heaven, with God as its vertical, absolute axis. This is the only way to pass on the true, good lineage to all humankind. That is the path to achieving God’s ideal of true families. From now on, sexual purity, purity of lineage, and purity of love will be the educational philosophy of the true human race.

Third, the new peace-king representatives (boon bong wangs), Ambassadors for Peace, and the Parent UN will be placed at the forefront of the efforts to completely eliminate Satan’s walls and fortifications that bind the earth in multiple layers and to reinstate harmony and peace between political parties, religions, races, cultures, and nations. The existing UN (in the position of the Cain-type UN) and the Abel-type UN should become one and elevate to a higher dimension, becoming the True Parent UN –in other words, the UN of a truly peaceful world. With this as the center, all evil problems confronting the satanic world — such

as war, disease, and hunger — will be resolved. This is surely the direction all people must go. They will have no choice because God in heaven and True Parents will be with them. Individualistic self-centeredness as well as collective self-centeredness will be eradicated, and this will lead to the realization of a world governed by our conscience and natural reason.

Fourth, the cross-cultural, international blessing marriage is the optimal method of establishing true families that will purify the lineage of the fallen human race and build the peace kingdom. In the end, reconciliation and peace will come about through lineage. When blacks and whites, Eastern peoples and Western peoples, Buddhists and Christians, and Jews and Muslims intermarry and carry on the blessed-marriage tradition that True Parents have established, this world will naturally form the realm of one family that seeks and establishes God’s homeland and hometown. An ideal, heavenly kingdom based on the ideal of one family under God will come about. As we melt our guns and cannons to make plowshares, a new world of peace will open up before us.

Fifth, God created us as His counterparts in love, and He prepared the natural world as a gift for us, His children. God would not leave His children to live in a barren desert devoid of beautiful scenery. That is why all people have the duty to preserve and love the natural world as God does. I am saying that you should develop your human nature as it was originally meant to be, such that you experience resonance even with a cluster of wildflowers as if you were sharing a heartfelt conversation with them. That will be a shortcut to restoring humankind to God.

Ladies and gentlemen who have been chosen by Heaven! You have all truly received a heavenly blessing. You are participating in the ceremony to launch the providential undertakings governed by the King of Kings. You are witnessing with your own eyes the whirlwind of this historic transition point. You received an invitation to attend the coronation, golden anniversary, and celebration of the autobiography of the True Parent, the king of kings on the horizontal level, who will govern all of creation as the physical representative of God, the King of Kings on the vertical level. Will you ever again, in your lifetime, have the chance to attend such a historic and significant occasion? Your ancestors, numbering in the billions throughout the cosmos, and your descendants will cheer, dance, and live in joy and delight at this time, shaking the very axis of the earth.

I pray that you will open your mind’s eyes and engrave this extraordinary and historic moment on your souls. When else during your life will you be able to witness such a day of blessing and glory as you have today? I hope that you can heed the words of Heaven that I have shared with you today and use them as guidelines for your lives from now on.

Ladies and gentlemen who have been chosen by Heaven! I am sure you all feel this from the message I have just read, but humankind is entering a new providential era wherein the earth will be governed directly by a new heavenly way and new heavenly law. It is the new, providential era of the realm of the fourth and original Adam, when no one can enter the new Kingdom of Heaven without inheriting God’s new standard of heart based on His original nature.

Through True Parents’ providential coronation, golden wedding anniversary, publication celebration, and the commemoration of the fifty-fifth anniversary of the founding of the Holy Spirit Association in this new era, I pray that you may form wise and new families of citizens in God’s Kingdom, Cheon Il Guk — families whose members clearly distinguish between Cain and Abel in their lives, who integrate them into a new realm of Abel, placing goodness at its center, and who restore the realm of the three eras of the Old, New, and Completed Testament ages and the three generations of my family.

I am asking you to form, and live as, new true families based on original human nature through which the new true grandparents, true parents, and true grandchildren can enter, hand in hand, into the new Kingdom of Heaven. Please engrave on your hearts the meaning of this gathering to establish the truly peaceful world of the True Parent UN, which we are celebrating today.

I pray and proclaim in the names of the victorious True God and True Parents that the new authority of the great blessing of the true God, the King of Kings of all nations, can flow abundantly into your new families, new nations, and throughout the new cosmos.

May God’s blessings fill the entire cosmos.

Thank you very much.

Happy Foundation Day for the Unified Nation of Heaven and Earth!(established 10/3/1988)

Prayer of Rev. Sun Myung Moon on October 3, 1988, the year of the Seoul Olympics in Seoul, South Korea

Beloved Heavenly Father! The flow of history has been one of intense grief, and the history of Your providence has been one of despair. This was caused neither by God Himself or the creation. It was solely due to the mistake of Adam and Eve, who were the owners of all creation, and the archangel, whose responsibility it was to manage and nurture them into maturity, that such a wretched flow of history has been handed down. When we think of this fact, and how much God must have bemoaned it, we cannot help but reproach the unforgivable actions of humanity in bringing about the ruin of the world.

However, because You are of love, Father, You have persevered to this day to reestablish the standard of the original ideal of creation through the history of re-creation, not casting us away even after being compelled to retrace Your steps tens of thousands of times, over and over again, on the sorrowful path of the historical eras, devoting your everything again and again, working for our sake and never forsaking us from such a position, and forgetting Yourself at all times even when Your heart marked with love was torn into a thousand, ten thousand pieces. We cannot but be grateful for the fact that such a great God is there.

Since such a heart of the providence was brought about through the wrongdoings of humankind, human beings have the responsibility to perceive it, and for this reason many saints and sages have appeared in the historical eras, and many religious leaders have come and gone as well. However, because none of them knew the story hidden behind this valley of heart, nor could they unveil this hidden truth, and so did not come to learn what was the cause of this bitter grief of Heaven, from what motive the Devil came to be originated, or what are all the conditions for Satan to accuse and condemn us in these historical eras. Therefore, until now, there has not been found the way to eliminate and defend ourselves from it in the religious world.

We are aware of the fact that all those who believed in religion, revered Heaven and were resolved to fulfill the duties of loyalty and filial piety, and risked their lives as they fought their way through, all fell into the trap in the end and perished as the sacrifice of Satan, and that many people were sacrificed at the crucial moment in the path of indemnity, that moment when the eight stages were to be surmounted.

Therefore, I ask the spiritual world to enlighten the people who were sacrificed in the process of passing through the barriers of religion in the course of history. Thus, let them once again inherit the heart of sincerity towards Heaven and regain the mind to serve True Parents on earth with the sincerest of hearts, so that they can become one with True Parents’ family, and make contributions to True Parents’ nation, True Parents’ world, and the great cause of the victorious Kingdom of Heaven they have established. By so doing, centering on the relationship between the children of True Parents and the church members of True Parents, please allow all the ties of lineage that were severed to be renewed and engrafted.

All our ancestors who have preceded us into the spiritual world are like the firstborn sons, and those of us living on this earth today are like the second born sons, so please help us become one in union. Since we know that when the spirit and the flesh are made into one, and Cain and Abel are united into one, the original right of the eldest son can be established and the path seeking after the liberation of Father be connected on the victorious foothold of the vertical Cain and Abel realm, we ask you to call upon and awaken all the spirits in the spiritual world that were sacrificed at each and every stage of the religious era, that they may be re-indemnified before all religions of the physical world.

Hereupon, bestow on them all the authority necessary to make them one with the religious leaders and, by establishing the basis with the help of Heaven whereon to restore the right of the eldest son of Cain and Abel and the domain wherein to live in attendance to the parents, be liberated and released in accordance to it and come down to earth and be united.

Father, it is the earnest desire of True Parents to have liberated the wretched religious leaders, and furthermore, to have come down to earth all the conscientious and good people, who sacrificed themselves and struggled to live in accordance with their conscience and conscientious duties in the provinces, trying to follow the path of morality left behind by their ancestors before them in history, and we beseech you to open the gates through which they can enter, following behind in attendance to True Parents, into the Kingdom of God, by cooperating with their substantial object partners on earth.

Now that the era is come in which Satan will have to retreat, we ask You to bring under control and establish as a part of Your household in Your realm of love all those who were in the religious realm and the conscientious realm, and moreover, even those who were in the embrace of the satanic world, and have them form blood ties with True Parents so they can enter the realm of global fortune wherein they too can receive the grace to seek after the truth. Just as Korea became one with the unified external foundation at the time of the Olympics, we have become one in heart with the internal God on this day, and thus centering on the victorious domain of the Cain and Abel realm, we hope to march forward into the unified realm of both external liberation and internal liberation, so please, Father, be with us on this day and at this hour.

To come so far, this son, in the name of True Parents, has had to struggle for forty years. And yet, how could that be compared with the standard of Your own toils and labors? Personally feeling my insufficiencies as I could not live up to Your desired standard, I have lived under the shadows. Still, You did not forsake me, but righted my way night and day, and I am truly grateful for the innumerable helping graces You have given me behind the arras to aid me in pioneering the difficulties in my environment and overcoming crises in my path.

Father! I know how much You have been disappointed and driven to despair in the course of guiding me thus far, so please forgive this son of Yours. Also, I pray You will forgive at this hour all the wrongdoings committed by the members as they followed me through the process of establishing the Unification Church. Don’t leave them in wretchedness, but please embrace them in Your bosom so that they can receive the blessing of Heaven as the standard-bearers and warriors You desired and as the princes of love You have appointed, and please establish them as Your children in whom You would not feel ashamed to take pride. Though I am embarrassed to say, I have raised my hand to bless them on behalf of Your heart in the name of True Parents, so Father, Father, I truly hope and pray that You will also make amends for it.

Father, You know of our situation, writhing and struggling because we don’t know the way get under control the phenomena being manifested, and Father, You know we cannot follow the path of bloodshed brought about by our own hands, so we ask You from the bottom of our hearts to please embrace all of us with the love You have given us, widen the path of seeking after the truth, and take charge of our future.

I have declared to forgive with the love of True Parents everyone from the very first of our ancestors in the spirit world to the succeeding generations to the 5 billion world population currently living on earth, even those in the communist world including their leader, Mikhail Gorbachev and Deng Xiaoping, and even the president of the United States, Mr. Ronald Reagan, and such people. To do so, I have presented to Heaven all the necessary conditional offerings, so please allow all this not to go to waste, but instead have them embedded in Your realm of heart together with the declaration that can bring together both worlds, and make use of them as the driving force propelling us into the liberated world, and accept them as such. We truly hope and pray You will do so.

A week after performing the ceremony of unified conversion which in turn leads to the providence of restoration, at this moment, the day on which the South and the North can be united, the world can be united, and the Kingdom of Heaven on earth and in heaven can be united, this Foundation Day for the Nation of the Unified World has been declared along with the liberation of all nations on the foundation of the epochal point placing the unified realm of heart of True Parents. Therefore, may all those in heaven and on earth who have ears and eyes hear and see and cooperate in this great task to march forward into the unified world of liberation.

Beginning with the liberation of the South and the North, in order to have this extended to the liberation of Asia, liberation of the world, liberation of the physical world as well as the liberation of hell in the spiritual world, and a step further to the liberation of the wishes of True Parents and the world of the true liberation of God, we have been assigned the task to fight our way through in the remaining process of unification, centering on love and devoting all we have, and so we have raised high the banner of love in 120 nations and established new lighthouses of unification and turned their lights on, so just as their lights never go off, we are firmly resolved to advance into the world of the unified kingdom together so that this heart of love we have pledged before You may never go off, so, Father, we ask You to accept all this.

We declare once again in the name of True Parents that You accept the declaration made today as Yours, and at the same time, as the unified declaration of the spiritual world and the physical world. May this nation carry on forever as one that lives everlastingly under the eternal reign of the True Father, True Parents and the True Children! I offer and declare all this in the name of True Parents! Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. Amen. (181-335)

Convention to Proclaim the Word that Firmly Establishes the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
July 24, 2010
Manhattan Center
New York, NY

Ladies and gentlemen, God created human beings as his children. As the original absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal being, God created people by breathing His love into them to endow them with a soul. If not for the Fall, we would have been able to perfect ourselves as God is perfect, to fulfill the way of absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience, and to attain eternal life.

But unfortunately, human beings are living as descendants of the Fall. In order to live a perfect life, all people without exception must receive life through the blessing from True Parents in the three stages of rebirth, resurrection and eternal life. Rebirth, in this context, refers to an individual attaining new life. Resurrection is when a family and nation attains new life, and eternal life refers to all of humankind attaining perfection and living forever in God’s homeland after establishing the kingdom of heaven on earth and in the spirit world by attending True Parents, the King and Queen of Peace.

Jesus Returns in the Same Manner He Left

Numbers 32:1

32 The tribes of Reuben and Gad owned a lot of cattle and sheep, and they saw that the regions of Jazer and Gilead had good pastureland. So they went to Moses, Eleazar, and the other leaders of Israel and said, 3-4 “The Lord has helped us capture the land around the towns of Ataroth, Dibon, Jazer, Nimrah, Heshbon, Elealeh, Sebam, Nebo, and Beon. That’s good pastureland, and since we own cattle and sheep, would you let us stay here east of the Jordan River and have this land as our own?”

Isaiah 31

The Egyptians are mere humans.
    They aren’t God.
Their horses are made of flesh;
    they can’t live forever.
When the Lord shows his power,
he will destroy the Egyptians
    and all who depend on them.
Together they will fall.

Let Us Love Heaven and Become Patriots

Rev. Sun Myung Moon
March 1, 1959

Matthew 5: 33-48

The time when we find our own world, our own people, our own tribe and our own nation and serve our Lord are the last days for which Heaven is hoping. This is the last days determined by Jesus, when he came to the earth for the sake of God’s will, the day of hope we should seek. It is the day for which Heaven, Jesus and all of us are hoping. Everything will be resolved on that day.

It is the Principle that the Lord of the Second Advent will return in the same way he left. When you lose something, you must look for it where you lost it. If something is broken, you must fix it in the pattern opposite to the way it was broken. Because this is an iron- clad rule which is bound by the principles governing human affairs, the Lord of the Second Advent will return in the same way he left. You have to understand that things are recovered in the same way they were lost.

Today is the time when all that was granted to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden will be recovered. All the people who live in this land today are descendants of fallen Adam and Eve. You are the descendants of fallen parents. You are not descendants of True Parents. Hence, you must become the descendants of True Parents again. What I mean is that you must receive the blessing of True Parents inside the realm of God’s love, where you can relate with God and True Parents directly. You must then form a couple and enter the lineage of the True Parents. Yet, until today, humanity has never properly governed the earth as children of the True Parents. They could not become the sons and daughters of the True Parents. Isn’t this true? Continue reading “Jesus Returns in the Same Manner He Left”

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.”

Cheon Seong Gyeong  155

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/.

Cheon Seong Gyeong  1000

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”
