REVEREND SUN MYUNG MOON
WHY DOES THE LORD
HAVE TO COME BACK?
Today we have arrived at the time when, on behalf of this era,
we must look toward the gaunt hyung sang of Jesus Christ who appeared
with Your permission before Your will to save all people. Father of
compassion, Father of love, Father of mercy, Father of capability!
Although the 4,000 years spent to prepare for the sending of Jesus was
a long time, the 2,000-year history since the death of Jesus is also a
long time. Please allow us to realize that we face embarrassment today
and have no way to save our face before You.
Please allow us to understand the heart of Father who is gazing upon
human beings today with hope after spending 6,000 long years for the
sake of calling upon insignificant people, clinging to, working through
and finding insignificant people. Father, we wish most earnestly that
You will allow us to become sons who can show concern for the mournful
heart of the Father on behalf of Jesus' gaunt appearance.
We know that, although there are many people who believe and are
chosen, the sons and daughters whom You can personally love are extremely
few. Father of compassion, please allow Your sons and daughters who
have gathered here now to discover within themselves the heart that is
concerned about the Father. We hope that You will allow them to become
loyal sons and daughters who can expose their own shamefulness and
abandon everything to follow the will that You desire.
Please manifest the granted divine favor centering on the sons and
daughters gathered here. We who bear the mission to forecast the last days
know that the time has come when we must take on the universal mission
that You plan to entrust to us in the last days. Father, we entreat
from the depth of our hearts that You will lead us not to prolong the
great undertaking of the universal principles. Lead us not to carry out
actions that will cause grief among people because of us.
Father, we earnestly pray that in this hour only the Holy Trinity
will govern us and everything in ourselves. Let only the workings of the
Father's original nature, which represents all characters, to manifest
through each one's heart.
Now we have come forward with the words that You want to spread,
so please let there be no gap between the heart of the conveyer and
the heart of the receiver. Please lead us not to use human knowledge as
the criterion to make judgments. We sincerely hope that You will allow
this to be an hour when, having entrusted everything in the Father,
we can be in harmony with Your commanding words and be offered as the
one sacrifice before the Father. Please accept us and rule over us. We
prayed in the name of the Lord. Amen.
The title of the sermon I want to reflect upon with you is "Why
Does the Lord Have to Come Back?" I will speak on this topic.
Jesus Who Was Distrusted by the Israelites
Jesus faces the dispensational fate to come back, because when he came
to this earth he died hanging on the cross and after the resurrection
he ascended to Heaven. Among the Israelite people who have been abiding
by God's dispensational will for a long time, Judaism had the mission
to fulfill the will of God and lay the foundation of victory. This was
the desire of God who chose them and was also their own hope.
Wishing for this one time when this will might be realized, God sent
His only begotten son whom He could trust to execute the entire task of
materializing the ideals of creation. Therefore, God had to realize the
historical blessing through Israel by bringing Jesus before the human
beings as their master, and bring a conclusion to the will of God's
dispensation of salvation.
However, why did Jesus pass away without being able to accomplish
the dispensational will on this earth and build the ideal garden where
he could sing the song of God's glory? This must be the content that
provokes sorrow in us today.
The course of Jesus, from the time he came to the earth to the time
that he passed away, is not the same life course of the human beings
who are living on earth today. He passed through the life course that is
more difficult and lonely than anyone else's. Moreover, Jesus emerged as
the one person of the one sphere of the generation and sphere of time,
holding the will of God and ideals of human beings in himself. There was
not even one person on earth who recognized the value of Jesus with the
same value that heaven attributed to him. Not only that, human beings
could not serve Jesus as the central being of love who can connect all
humanity with the love of God.
Consequently, Jesus led an unspeakably miserable life. Jesus did
not have anyone to consider as a friend and discuss his own sorrow.
Similarly, today you have to understand that he lived a more pitiful
life than anyone else.
Jesus' coming to fulfill the will of God and for the sake of God's
glory should have been the joy of the Israelite people, the joy of
Judaism and humanity. He, the only son of God, should have emerged as
the master of all humanity. Yet, why did Jesus lead such a miserable
life of hunger and sadness?
Although the time has changed and history has passed, you should be
able to experience the sorrow and loneliness that Jesus felt while he was
alive, and take to heart his misery. However, if you cannot become the
sons and daughters who can return glory to God by vanquishing Satan on
behalf of heaven and earth, then there is no way that you can alleviate
the deep-rooted sorrow and loneliness of Jesus.
Jesus' hope was not in satisfying his own desires, but even by
sacrificing himself to actualize God's ideals of creation. Because human
beings who were raised as the central beings of the created world fell,
God has been guiding the dispensation of restoration for 4,000 years
to realize the ideals of creation. Jesus, taking responsibility for the
errors of the fallen human ancestor, appeared with this will of God as
his own ideology and purpose.
However, the Israelite people did not understand this Jesus. This
is not all. The Jewish people also did not know that, while Jesus
represented the historical hope, at the same time he represented the
entire will of God.
Although Jesus was an individual who stood in lofty solitude, he
could represent history, and, while representing the present reality,
he also possessed the eternal ideal of God that can represent the will
of the heavenly laws. However, the Israelite people and the Judaism who
had been faithful to the will of God did not realize that he was such
a figure. So, rather than helping him in his path, they obstructed his
way and persecuted him.
The Heart of Jesus, Who Died on the Cross
Then, what is the sorrow of Jesus who was looking down upon the
Israelite people and humanity? That was not the sorrow that mourned over
the environment that he could see. The sorrow of Jesus represented the
painful heart of God who has been leading the dispensation of restoration
for 4,000 years since the fall of Adam, and represented the countless
prophets and sages who exerted themselves while upholding the will of
God and passing through the long 4,000-year historical course. You today
must feel that Jesus was this kind of man.
Then, what was the depth of Jesus' sadness? Because Jesus came while
bearing the sorrow of God's 4,000 years and the sorrow of many millions
of prophets and sages in heaven, God, the many millions of believers,
and the heavenly soldiers and angels understood the anguish of Jesus.
Jesus' grief was not for his own sake, but was for the sake of the
Israelite people who killed him, and was the sorrow that carried concern
for the Jewish faith and the path of the will. Although the Israelite
people and the leaders of Judaism should have learned about this heart
of Jesus, reflected upon it and repented, among them there was not even
one person who understood the grief of Jesus.
Since the Jewish people could not attend Jesus as Messiah, who came
with the historical heart of grief and the yearning for human beings,
his sadness was magnified. In addition, we must know that because the
Israelite people and the Jewish faith who should have fulfilled the will
of God centering on Jesus completely forgot the desired will of God and
betrayed Jesus, Jesus had to live a life of shedding infinite tears of
grief on behalf of God's tears for some thirty-odd years of his life. You
must know that to complete his mission to introduce the situation and
heart of the Father who held high hopes full of desires, he endured
through the gushing forth of grief during the toilsome three years of
public life, and had to suffer through the miserable and wretched anguish
of being chased through the Garden of Gethsemane to the hill of Golgotha.
Then why did Jesus offer the prayer in the Garden of Gethsemane, "My
Father, if it is possible, please let this cup pass from me. However,
do not as I will, but as thou will" (Matthew 26:39)? That was because
he was concerned who would take responsibility for the grief of God,
countless believers and all human beings. It was because he knew that
if he died on the cross, then the many believers who followed him would
also walk the path of death. So, he was filled with a mournful heart
and made that appeal to Heaven.
Jesus who acted on behalf of the sorrow of God and human beings,
who sadly died on the cross on behalf of the sorrow of the countless
living things of the future generations.E You are not to see this Jesus
only as an historical Jesus, but you must find Jesus who might be in
the same situation in the present reality of today, and become the heirs
of Jesus who can reveal him to the world. Otherwise, there is no way to
resolve the bitter grief and sorrow that have been tightly intertwined
in history. The believers who have believed in Heaven until now have
been striving to become the heirs of Jesus. Furthermore, we must remove
Jesus' deep sorrow, and even remove the sadness that will be passed down
to the descendants.
This era right now is the last days, which everyone is talking about
and many prophets have predicted, and the time of the second coming,
which Jesus referred to as the time when he will come back after he was
rejected by the people and the religion and passed away. Then, living
in this kind of time, what should you do? You should be able to comfort
Jesus who is to come, and be more sincerely concerned about the will of
heaven than Judaism and the Jewish people at the time of Jesus.
The Believers of the Last Days
Who must Be Responsible
for the Historical Grief
To comfort Jesus who is to come, in his place you must be
responsible for the grief of the 4,000-year history of which Jesus
took responsibility. Adding the 2,000 years after the death of Jesus,
when even the Holy Spirit came and suffered in anguish, you must also
be responsible for the historical grief of 6,000 years, so that you can
inherit the great remaining feat of the heavenly principles which had
been cut off because of Jesus' death.
We who are accountable to heaven cannot abandon the historical
connection and lead a personal life. We must become the people of
heart, which can feel responsible for the universe and the future,
and, on behalf of the grief of heaven, heavenly soldiers and angels,
and all people of this earth, can feel deep concern and sorrow for the
fact that human beings are looking toward the judgment day of God and
are dwelling in the realm of the fall.
Moreover, we must be able to say to Jesus, "We understand your grief
and the reason you had to die." We must experience the same desperate
heart and situation of Jesus who came to this earth and suffered great
anxiety to complete his mission of redeeming many people.
Unless you can become this kind of person, no matter how much you
desire, you cannot serve Jesus who is the master of history, master of
the universe, and master of the ideals of the future. You cannot relieve
such grief of Jesus.
What you must understand today is the fact that Jesus has been locked
up inside the sorrow of 4,000 years, and has walked the path of death on
behalf of all people and descendants for some thirty-odd years of his
life. Therefore, you must cry out to heaven, based on this historical
situation. To climb over this and reach the realm of ideals of creation,
you must set a new standard of faith and lead a testimonial life,
in which you can even offer your life. Otherwise, you cannot become a
person who possesses eternal value.
Then, as people of faith, what kind of mind-set must we have? In the
same way that among the Israelite people there was the sect of Judaism
that had the central mission, there must also be some central religious
group for the fulfillment of the mission of world level Israelites
centering on Christ.
In other words, because history unfolds itself with time-identity,
God must conclude the dispensational history by establishing one religion
that takes charge of the mission of the last days. We who have arrived
at this last days must find that representative religion. When we try
to find that religion, as a historical lesson we must reflect upon the
mistakes of Judaism committed at the time of Jesus.
What we who are living in the concluding era of the world must
understand is that, because the Lord who is to come again will follow
the same path as Jesus, he will cross over the sorrowful pass on the
world level to come to this earth again. Just as Jesus walked the path
of hardships and was eventually chased to the hills of Calvary through
the Garden of Gethsemane because of the opposition of the Israelite
people and Jewish sects, the returning Lord will also suffer through
the opposition of Israel and Judaism of the world level and climb over
the road of Golgotha on the world level.
You today must experience the grief of God from many angles. You must
experience the sorrow that God felt when looking at the Israelite people
and the sects of Judaism, experience the sorrow that God felt when looking
at history and concerned about future. When you become this kind of
person, Jesus who is filled with grief can come seeking you. Furthermore,
you must be able to eliminate all sorrows of the 6,000-year history, which
includes the 2,000 years of history since Jesus. Otherwise, you cannot
climb over the path of the world Golgotha with the Lord who is to come.
Until today the believers who follow Jesus do not realize that
the three disciples falling asleep and not heeding the voice of Jesus
when he was appealing to Heaven in the Garden of Gethsemane, and the
disciples mocking and persecuting Mary Magdalene who, understanding
the heavenly value of Jesus poured aromatic oil on his feet and wiped
them with her hair to affirm the glory of the Lord who was to resurrect,
all remained a source of Jesus' bitter grief. While walking that lonely
path that no one recognized, Jesus felt the sorrowful heart. However,
because only Mary Magdalene comforted Jesus, was concerned about him
and could feel the heavenly, internal heart of Jesus that represented
past, present and future, Jesus blessed her and, with the grace of joy,
he could elevate her before the will of God.
The Heart and Situation of Jesus
That We Must Experience
What kind of heart then must we, who live in the last days, go forward
with? In the same way as Mary Magdalene who, longing for the Christ, who
traveled the heartbreaking and exhausting course of toils, and forgetting
all about her own position, prestige and dignity, went in search of the
tomb with an anxious heart and finally was granted the glory to behold
the resurrected Jesus; we must have the earnest and aching heart that
surpasses Mary's. If we cannot achieve this, then even if we find the
Lord, we cannot attend him eternally.
Thus, in order for you to meet the Lord, to be embraced in his bosom
of abundant love, and sing the glory of God in the garden of love, you
must comfort God's sorrowful heart of 6,000 years, comfort the sorrowful
heart of Jesus Christ, and comfort the hearts of the countless believers
who are in the spirit world. When you become such people, God and the
believers of heaven will welcome you, Jesus and all people will also
welcome you, and you will surpass the position of Mary Magdalene to
create the ideal environment of life within the realm of God's glory.
Then, what you have to understand today is that, your physical bodies
which must restore the sad history of 6,000 years are not in the position
of being separated from outside. God transcends history and carries on
the dispensation. Therefore, you are also connected to the past, present
and the future. Not only that, you as individuals have relationships of
the front-back, left-right and up-down. You must understand this fact
on your own and not make a careless judgment or act without deliberation.
You must never forget that you must accomplish, based on your
individual selves, the will of God who is trying to set the eternal value
that transcends history. Then, in order for humanity to welcome the
Lord who is coming again with the grief of Jesus having suffered pain
and sorrow in his heart, you must be able to substitute that pain and
grief. In order for you to fulfill this mission, you must first understand
the cause that forced Jesus to walk the path of ordeals. That took place
because the chosen John the Baptist and even Jesus' own family abandoned
Jesus. You must experience this situation of Jesus. Thus, in order for
you to act on behalf of Jesus' hardships and relieve him of the deeply
entrenched grief, you must complete your responsibility of attending Jesus
for the central religion, Judaism, which had forsaken Jesus at that time.
For the sake of Jesus who was betrayed on the world level, even if
you are alone, you would be able to fight against the world and step
forward to thwart any kind of betrayal for the sake of Jesus who was
betrayed by the leaders of Judaism. You must understand that this is
the path of restoration.
In addition, in your generation you must single-handedly pay indemnity
for and set the condition of victory for the whole condition of infidelity
set by the family and tribe of Joseph, who prophesied the day of victory
and prepared for the birth of Jesus. You must realize that, if you cannot
do this, there is no way that the returning Lord can possess the ideal
people, religious group and family.
Moreover, we must understand that Jesus did not just walk that path
of sorrow. He also walked a path of infinite loneliness. Although Jesus
wanted to reveal the whole will to the human beings on earth, but because
there was no one who could receive it he could not reveal it, so he felt
You must understand that Jesus was distressed because he could not
get rid of his loneliness, as he moved from this city because that city
opposed him, and moved to this village because another village opposed
him, and that in search of someone who can comprehend his mournful
situation he wandered around. At least you have to understand Jesus'
situation that although he came to this earth with the love of heaven
and the relationship of heavenly principles, in the historical course
his heart suffered the sorrow and loneliness that are not surpassed
before or after him, and you must comfort him.
If there is someone who feels this heart of Jesus and lives in the
position of having become one with this situation of Jesus, then with
just few words, "Oh! Lord, Father!" he can connect with the heart of
Jesus. However, there was no such person until now. Therefore, you
must be this kind of person. To do that, you must transcend history and
environment to experience the lonely heart of Jesus.
The New Religious Group,
Disciples and Family
Serving the Lord
Jesus was a lonely person, the master of sorrow and prince of grief.
He was incredibly pitiful. No matter how miserable and lonely a person
there might be on this land, you must realize that there is no one who
is more pitiful and lonely than Jesus.
God has been frustrated because He did not have one person who could
mourn on Jesus' behalf, share the anxiety on his behalf, and genuinely
believe in Jesus. Therefore, you must bear in mind that we have the
mission to represent the Heavenly heart and experience the bitter heart
of Jesus, who came to find the people who can connect with the heavenly
heart and be bonded to the original nature to return the glory of victory
before Heaven, but could not fulfill that will.
You must imagine the appearance of Jesus who exerted himself to fulfill
the will of God, and learn to sympathize with the pitiful Jesus. Until
now we thought that after the ascension, Jesus stood on the right side
of God as the lord of glory, but what we find now is that because Jesus
could not fully accomplish the purpose for which he came to the earth,
even after he went to the spirit world, he is in the pitiful position
to pray for our sake, in the shoes of a penitent who takes charge of
the sins of all people.
We must trust, follow and attend this Jesus in our actual life.
Therefore, you must live to substitute for pitiful Jesus who has suffered
sorrow on the world level and universal level and has suffered loneliness
on the world and universal level, and you should live to share joy and
suffering with Jesus. You should understand that now is the time that
you must ask yourself whether you have become this kind of person.
Then, what must we, who have to inherit as a great undertaking the
eternal will that Jesus tried to realize on earth and accomplish God's
ideals of creation, do in the future? What is the prerequisite demanded
There must emerge a religious group, disciples and family who can
serve the Lord who is coming to bring a conclusion to the 6,000-year
history soaked throughout with infidelity and sin. Thus, if we are truly
concerned about the will of God, we must transcend the relationships
within the religious groups and set the new standard of religious
order that can replace the historical faith in the practical reality
of today. By forming the standard of disciples and family who can take
charge of the future mission of the gospel and by laying the foundation
for eternal victory, we can create the eternal garden of God.
Although the world, the people, the religious sects, family and even
the chosen disciples betrayed Jesus who came for the sake of the humanity
and the world, at least you today must become friends of Jesus and give
consolation for his situation. For Jesus who mourned while looking at
the betraying world, religious group and tribe, there should have been
parents who can connect to his heart, but such was not the case.
As in the Bible verses recited earlier, when someone told Jesus that
his mother and younger brothers had come, Jesus replied, "Who is my mother
and my brothers? Whoever acts according to the will of my Father in heaven
is my brothers, sisters and mother." As we can see from these words,
Jesus did not have parents and brothers who can sincerely comfort him.
Jesus found himself in such a sad, lonely and miserable situation
and was forsaken by the tribe because he did not have true parents and
brothers. Since he was betrayed even by John the Baptist who should
have prepared the path of the Lord, he felt such enormous grief and
bitterness. You must become connected to the situation of Jesus by feeling
his heart, and, going one step further, you must be able to inherit all
of his teachings.
Although Jesus' family and tribe were amazed by the miracles that
took place from the time of Jesus' birth, because they were ignorant
about the dispensation of God, they could not receive him as Messiah.
Originally they should have understood the heavenly mission of Jesus
and prepared the future path and environment of Jesus to become the
stepping stone for Jesus who will be fulfilling the dispensational
will. If they did that, then there would have been no need for Jesus to
find the disciples. Because Jesus was raised through the relationship
of lineage during some sixty odd generations from Adam to Joseph, if his
family and tribe had guarded him and formed the tribal sphere that could
confront and fight against the religious sects, people and world that
turned against him, Jesus would have never stood in the position of grief.
The Family Environment Which the
Lord of the Second Advent Will Seek
Then, when Jesus returns to this land, what will he seek? Because
Jesus lost the family environment that can fight against the satanic
world with him, when he returns, he will first seek the foundation of
a family that can ward off the sources of his sorrow and pain.
Therefore, you must form one heart with Jesus and act as that family
fence. The reason is that not having such a protective family enclosure
was the cause of very bitter grief of Jesus. If at that time Jesus'
family had become his fences and there appeared true children of God who
could represent the heart of Jesus and testify, "Jesus is my true lord,"
then there would have been no cause for Jesus' resentment. Therefore, you
must become the protective family fence for the Lord who is coming again.
If there were brothers who can give consolation for Jesus' sorrow,
then centering on them Jesus' grief could have been uprooted. Not only
that, if the Jewish people became the disciples and collaborators of
Jesus centering on his tribe, then his gospels would have gone beyond
the boundaries of Judaism and spread to the world. If that had happened,
the gospels of Jesus would not have been spread from the foreign soils;
but, Jesus did not have such a tribe and people.
When the Lord, who passed away in such great sorrow, returns, what
must we do? No matter what kind of difficulty we encounter, we must
put our lives on the line and become his family level foundation and
tribal level foundation when he returns and fulfills the will of God.
This is the mission of the believers who are living in the last days.
However, unfortunately, the believers of today are not aware of this.
Now, you must be able to pray, "Heaven, please entrust in me to
resolve the bitterness of the 6,000 years. Please entrust the sorrow of
Jesus and the sorrow of Heaven!"
By doing so, just like Jesus who, even as he passed through the Garden
of Gethsemane and walked the path of sacrifice, the path of death,
on behalf of the people, did not hold grudges against the unfaithful
people who forced him to walk that path, we must possess the heart of
parents and stand in the position of parents. Not only that, you must
also experience the position of bride and bridegroom, and experience
the position of heavenly family and tribe.
When this is accomplished, Jesus will return to this earth and,
centering on you, build ideal family and tribe. That time is the last
days. The family of hope God desired since the creation of the world,
the ideal family that He sought as the ideal of creation did not appear
on earth yet. Only when someone who can experience the aching heart of
God and Jesus one hundred percent appears on this land, God and Jesus'
bitter grief will be resolved.
Then, you who have gathered here are unlike other people! What is
the mission that you must do? You must take charge of the mission to
turn away from the position of the Israelite leaders, priests and John
the Baptist who betrayed Jesus when he came 2,000 years ago and caused
him to die on the cross, and to believe in and attend him. Jesus at the
time of his death on the cross was a pitiful and sad person. We who are
living in the concluding period of the 6,000-year history can serve the
coming Lord properly only when we are connected to the heart of Jesus.
The Standard of Life Which Jesus Set
What kind of standard of life did Jesus, who came to fulfill the will
of God, set? Jesus set the standard of life that abandons everything that
was not the will. Therefore, you must also set the standard of faith,
that can give up all of your ideals and desires or any condition of the
world that is not in accordance with the will.
Today, what do you have that you think are the best? However, if that
is not proven in heaven as something good for eternity, then it cannot
truly become a good thing. Therefore, to possess things that will also
remain valuable in heaven, on earth you must give up all that is not a
part of the will.
You should be able to relinquish any habit that is not in line with
heavenly principles. Even if everyone calls you a bad name and curses at
you, you should become sons and daughters who put their life on the line
and walk the path of God's will, just like Jesus who walked the road of
Golgotha on his own. You, who are walking the road of the will, one day
will experience being abandoned. You must be ready for that. Because
the world is a world of sin, and it is the principle that in the place
where this world of sin agrees the relations of heavenly principle can
never begin, you who are walking the path of the will must forsake this
world of sin. Similarly, while traveling the short cut to Heaven after
agreeing with the laws of heaven, there is the historical pass of tears,
the historical road of Golgotha, and the world level road of Golgotha.
We who have embarked upon this road, must be able to maintain a hopeful
heart, and even if we are rejected by the world, church and family we
should think that it is persecution and mockery that substitute the
You who have gathered here unlike others, please do not mourn over
the fact that there is persecution. Even when you are crying, you should
not cry while you are thinking only about yourself. Instead, you should
be able to pray, "To alleviate the resentment of Jesus and resolve the
sorrow of Jesus on the world level, I will not hesitate to go toward
any kind of position of suffering." You also should be able to pray,
"I will not hesitate even to embrace a miserable position on the world
level, or even death! For this task, I will forsake all of my desires!"
If you cannot discover a new self who can cross over the pass of human
ethics and connect with the laws of heavenly principles, in other words,
if you cannot become people who can faithfully manifest, through your body
and mind, the heart of God which represents the glory of resurrection,
and put it into action, then you cannot be restored as the people who
have perfected God's ideals of creation, the original people who have
nurtured the original nature. The greater the mission you have received
from heaven, the greater the fight against the evil world that you must
take on. You, who have gathered here today, should not try to fathom the
eternal heavenly laws with your current concepts of faith. In the same
way that the Jewish people, who longed so earnestly for the Messiah that
comes in place of the heavenly laws, could not receive Jesus who came as
Messiah, if you set the standard of eternal ideal with the Judaic-type of
faith and the Jewish doctrinal perspectives centered on the Pentateuch
of Moses, and become rigid, then without you being conscious of it, you
will fall into the abyss of death. Therefore, you must take to heart
the words of Jesus, "Those who love their father and mother more than
me are not acceptable, and those who love their sons and daughters more
than me are not acceptable" (Matthew 10:37).
If Jesus did not walk the road of Golgotha during some thirty-odd years
of his life course, but only took care of himself, then the dispensation
of restoration of God could not be carried out. Then, what kind of time
is today, the time of the judgment of the last days? The period today
is the same type of period as that of Sodom and Gomorrah in which Lot
lived. Therefore, today when we are at the last period of history, you
must entrust everything in heaven and live according to the commands of
heaven. Otherwise, you will find yourself in the same position as the wife
of Lot who has been washed away by the judgment on Sodom and Gomorrah.
Moreover, you must not take the same position as the believers of
Judaism or those Jewish people who turned against Jesus. You also must
not yield to Satan, even for one moment, and never forget that even in
this moment the decisive fight over life and death is unfolding.
The True Life of Faith That Receives
the Lord of the Second Advent
Then, in this kind of fight with Satan, what must you do to get rid
of any room for Satan to attack from up-down, front-back and left-right?
You must be able to stand in the position of parents and brothers who
can fathom the sorrowful heart of Jesus and shed tears together and
offer consolation, and you must become a comrade who can be moved by
the grace of heaven that melts flesh and bones.
If there is some difficulty, then you should take it as your own. If
there is joy, then you should offer it as that of parents, brothers and
friends. Just as Jesus loved humanity, you should be understanding toward
the difficult situations of brothers.
Great forgiveness is also possible only when you have understood the
situation of that person one hundred percent. Because God understands
the situation of human beings, He forgives them.
Thus, you must understand well, not only the situation of brothers,
but also of Jesus. By forming the heavenly family and tribe in which
members love and care for each other, you must build on this earth the
world of goodness that Jesus was trying to restore.
If the believers of the earth who have been chosen today become one to
form a Heavenly family, Heavenly tribe and Heavenly people, and if they
step beyond the level of the people and emerge on behalf of the world and
the 6,000-year history in the same way that Jesus represented the people
and the 4,000-year history, then the execution of God's judgment will be
discontinued. When this takes place and your family and tribe becomes one
with the whole, Jesus who passed away can manifest himself amid glory. To
achieve this standard today, we have put up the door plate of the Holy
Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity. We are
also calling each other members of the family. As is evident, we are
members of the same family. As brothers who are not actually brothers,
and tribe who are not actually the same tribe, we have become brothers
and a tribe of oneness and are forming Israel, which is responsible for
the will of the heavenly principles.
For the sake of this task, we must walk the path of a pioneer while
experiencing the sorrow of Jesus, and we must pass through the course
of conflict with Satan and reach the position of perfecting the will
of God. Only then, in joy we can receive Jesus who has passed away in
sorrow. You must bear this in your mind.
Father! Through the words that you have taught us after you
have come seeking us, we have understood that the root that we must
ultimately seek is brothers and parents. We have realized that the
emergence on earth of a family and tribe, centering on heaven, is the
hope of God and Father. So we, who have embarked upon the lonely path
unlike others, wish with the utmost earnestness that you guide us to
become the sons and daughters of heaven who, representing the sorrow
of Jesus, in the position of parents, friends, brothers and the tribe,
cross over the pass of conflict that obliterates the powers of Satan,
who is rebelling against the will of God on the world level.
We pray with sincerity, so the sons and daughters who are participating
here, please fulfill the hope of the will through us, and please allow
the ideal family and tribe of the will to be materialized through us! So,
hoping earnestly that you will guide us to develop our minds and bodies
into a place where Jesus can personally come and rejoice, sing and rest,
so that we can become the brothers and members of the family centered
on Heaven, we prayed all these words in the name of the Lord. Amen.
