Parents need to get permission from
the grandfather before sending their
grandson anywhere. Parents cannot
simply do whatever they want. This is
because the grandfather stands in the
position of God. (107-326, 1980.6.8)
Richard: The role of grandparents in raising grandchildren is very important.

In this way, just as the Israelites were
liberated after 430 years and began their
exodus, the same took place with the
Unification Church members. That is
why people from Jeolla province moved
to Gangwon province, and people from
Gangwon moved to Jeolla, and thus a
great mobilization was begun through
which people from different provinces
were interchanged. (58-59, 1972.6.6)
Richard: Our actions as Royal Families of True Love have substantial consequence for the nation.

Belvedere, Tarrytown, New York
We are now having follow-up training for the Soviet students in seven different locations throughout the country. Over 2000 people have been attending these workshops. You applaud but your applause has no power because though one side is happy because Father has so much success, one side is ashamed thinking about the Church in the United States.
You have not been listening to Father too well and never really believed Father’s message, but what about today? Can you believe the things that Father is announcing to you? (Yes!) Those who say, “Though I may have doubted in the past, I repent and from this time forward pledge to believe you with no doubt whatsoever,” raise your hands! Now that I see you believe me, I have more power and fun to speak to you.
Belvedere seems to be a magic place. Everybody comes here and gets so energized and yells “Yes, yes!” to all I say. As soon as you get out of the Belvedere door, you begin to worry about your groceries, your trip to the drug store, and other things. By lunchtime, you have a thousand things to worry about. You wonder if you really saw Father and don’t remember what you heard. You become your old self. In the meantime, one year is passing, ten years are passing, and your life is passing away.
Is there any school that will allow you to stay for ten years or more just because you are a slow learner? There is no room to keep you there for so long, so they will kick you out. Do you understand? Your life and your fruit is not Father’s responsibility, it is not the Unification Church’s responsibility. You yourself are responsible for your eternal life and your heaven. In the Bible, Jesus was passing through Jerusalem and saw a fig tree growing by the side of the road. He was in a hurry and crossed to the tree wanting to pick some fruit, but there was none. Jesus accused that tree and immediately it died. So don’t die. You not only have your life, but you have to bear fruit. Ten years, twenty years of membership does not automatically bring you fruit. That is not the way that God works. You must have actual fruit. Continue reading “The Number One Qualification of Messiahship”
