REVEREND SUN MYUNG MOON
Let Us Follow the Way of Jesus
April 26, 1959,
Former Church Headquarters
Father, You have endured the long course of history and fought to gain
the glory of Heaven! Please allow the day to soon appear in which You
alone receive the glory of the providence. We know well that Your
original will has been ruthlessly trampled down by a myriad of satans
from the time the human beings committed the error. We did not know
Your situation. We did not know that You must find someone to serve
the will which was to be realized by human beings on the earth because
that will was violated.
We know that the history of the providence is one in which You toiled
with no one to serve the will. You worked endlessly hard to convey the
will, which is burning in Your heart, to humankind. Father! Please
allow us to be heavenly sons and daughters who can exert all our
effort to possess Your will in our hearts and to follow Your path of
glory through the providential will and course of history. Since we
know that Your will is to find true sons and daughters, please be with
us so that we can build a country, world and universe where we can
serve You as true sons and daughters and give You joy. Help us realize
that this is the country and will of Your hope.
Your greatest joy and hope, after fighting for six thousand years, is
for true sons and daughters to harmonize with all things and offer
songs of praise to You. We must become heavenly sons and daughters who
can offer everything and set out to build such a country.
Father! We are infinitely distant from that day. Please allow us to be
sons and daughters who can understand Your will, the chosen sons and
daughters who can come forward with an offering of life, for the sake
of the day of Your glory. Let us do this regardless of constant
battle, mistreatment and death.
Father, since I have come here on the earth with a shimjung centered
on the will, in place of the glory of the son, please look after us
and come here personally and rule over us.
Please allow this to be a time when we can serve and bow to You as
true sons with a true purpose. Since we know that the forces of a
myriad of devils attack all people gathered for the will, we eagerly
hope and desire that You eliminate the force of darkness infiltrating
each of our minds and bodies and embrace us in Your generous bosom so
that we can establish the age of Your glory within our lifetimes.
As we have gathered before You at this time, please rule over us.
Since this is a holy day, please bless all the people. Please bless
the thirty million people. We eagerly hope and desire that this will
become a time when we can return glory and joy to You.
Please bless us so that we can clear away all the wrongful conditions
we have accumulated in the past week and be offered as living
sacrifices in the image of true sons and daughters who harbor the
heavenly will. Please move among us personally. We eagerly request
this. We pray in the name of the Lord. Amen.
Father! Please remember this day and reveal the granted grace. Reveal
through our hearts the granted movement of life. If You can, please
grant the glory of resurrection to us, even though we have been
Please rule over our minds and bodies. We have realized that although
we have our minds, they are not ours; although we have bodies, they
are not ours. Our minds seek the direction of goodness, yet our bodies
seek the direction of evil. Hence, we know that You treat us with the
understanding that we are struggling between the two and have not
stepped outside the realm of Heaven's lament. Father, You will have to
have pity on us and give us the heavenly grace of life and the strong
power of resurrection in our hearts.
Although the body tries to subjugate the mind, the heavenly will is
for the mind to defeat the body and establish one victorious standard
whereby the mind can eternally subjugate the body. We know that an
inevitable battle lies before us in which we have to establish such a
standard in ourselves.
Please allow us to feel that the wars that appear continuously before
us are not to be feared. Let us feel that all the sorrows encountered
in such combative circumstances are not as great as the sorrow caused
by the fact that the mind is subjugated by the body in the struggle
Father! Please arouse in us a strong heart and strong grace. We
eagerly hope and pray that You will help our minds possess the power
to subjugate our bodies. We know that unless we achieve a life
centered on the mind, our lives cannot be resurrected. Thus, Father,
our minds have to rise like lava.
Allow shock and ecstasy to envelop our bodies and our environments
through the mind that faces life, the mind that encounters grace, the
mind that can harmonize with the work of resurrection. Father, we
eagerly hope and pray that You allow such a heavenly work of
re-creation to appear in us.
Although our minds are infinitely soaring high toward Your glory, our
bodies are infinitely exhausted and struggling. Father, please control
this environment. Allow the joyful garden to appear soon before those
whose bodies move in accordance with their minds. Beloved Father, we
eagerly hope and desire that if there are such sons and daughters,
they will be remembered eternally in history. Bless them so that they
can dominate the earth and move Heaven.
We know that unless the people on earth realize a Kingdom of Heaven in
their minds, they cannot form a Kingdom of Heaven based on the word.
Unless they can achieve peace of heart, they cannot build a peaceful
country. First, please allow us to restore deep in our minds the heart
that can be highly inspired and delighted by You, the heart that can
sing to You. We know that Heaven is longing for the one whose body
moves and harmonizes with that mind.
Father, we have been fighting to become such people. Please allow us
to restore the victorious image You desire through the heart that
burns in the mind of each of us.
Please allow such people to gather at this time. Give us the ability
to serve You with dedicated hearts and to remove all the elements that
can be conditions for resentment. Beloved Father, we eagerly hope and
pray that in this way You will allow Your victorious hands, which can
more than dominate all, to stay near us. Please allow us to understand
that unless we achieve the heavenly kingdom of the heart and of peace
in ourselves, the glorious heavenly kingdom has nothing to do with us.
Father, among Your sons and daughters gathered here, is there someone
who has the glorious qualification to meet You directly because of his
eager heart of yearning for You? Is there someone who is trying to bow
to You as a living sacrifice, inspired by the heavenly heart that
Is there someone whose praiseworthy and tearful heart challenges the
path of death and infinitely resonates with the heavenly shimjung and
turns into a movement of life? Is there one who seeks to hold a
gathering of peace? We know that if such a heart is absent in us, You
will be sad, our hearts will be sad, and today's meeting will end in
Father! Please reveal Yourself here in glory. Come to us as our
personal Master. If there is someone who has felt Your grace, open his
heart and inject Your hope again. Many lives are captured by the power
of darkness and are moaning in the world of death. Father, we eagerly
hope and desire that You will remake them by bringing the life and
authority of resurrection.
Thus, allow us to serve the coming Lord and solemnly bow down to You
with our hands pressed together. Please allow us to feel that those
who try to be loyal to You receive many tests. Allow us to feel that
we are descendants of those who betrayed Heaven beyond measure.
We eagerly hope and desire that You allow us to realize that we have
become a sacrifice to Satan and have stood on the forefront of
blocking the heavenly course. Let us bow down to You for forgiveness,
with irrepressible regret and tears.
Father, please have pity on those who have gathered here. Satan is
trying to invade their hearts. Please make a separation, and become a
beacon to set the direction of their hearts right. Please come
personally to those who have gathered here. Let this be the time when
even the body, led by the mind, can sing of Your glory in joy, moved
by Your grace, and can bow to You representing the whole. Father, we
eagerly hope and desire this.
Father, today is a holy day. We know that everyone has severe wounds
from the past week of life. Please forgive us for having moved far
away from Your shimjung and for having been submerged in sorrow in the
wrong place. Please personally anoint us with Your fragrant oil.
Please grant the people here at this time the grace to long for You
and to receive the seals.
We know that the God of the Trinity works hard to help miserable
people. He visits those who deplore their lowliness to look to Your
compassion and try to sing of Your preciousness. Please guide our
hearts to see Your value and lament our lowliness so that we are not
found inadequate to receive Your grace.
Since today is a holy day, please bless the thirty million people and
the whole of humankind. Father, please act so that the millions of
saints surround us and offer a bow of joy. Brothers and sisters are
gathered everywhere, praying across the country with lonely hearts and
concern for the will. Do not remove Your hand of compassion from them;
protect them with a loving hand. Please do not let us fall down
exhausted as we go over the hill of toil in the last days. When we
offer ourselves to You after having endured till the end by holding
Your hand, please accept us.
We eagerly hope and pray that You will enable us to achieve the task
even in difficulty; to uphold the will even in sorrow; and to advance
the will even in frustration, thereby becoming sons and daughters to
be remembered in Your heart. We eagerly request that today You will
embrace us with Your special grace, promise us Your whole grace, and
hold us until the day of victory. Please rule over this time according
to Your will. We pray in the name of the Lord. Amen.
Father! After receiving the word, we have come to yearn for the image
of Jesus of two thousand years ago. A turbulent world and
self-centered people lay before Jesus as he tried to convey the word.
We realize that as he gazed at them, infinite sadness flowed from his
Jesus was looking at the situation where the Jewish church was not
only suffering from factional strife; its members were also fighting
among themselves. As we reflect on the characteristics of the age,
people boasting of themselves, hiding their faults and exposing
others' defects, we can see how intensely woeful the heart of Jesus
must have been as he carried the responsibility for the world and the
We can imagine the heart of Jesus, who nevertheless said, "Ask, and it
will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be
opened to you." (Matthew 7:7) Although it was the nation, church and
individual who were to ask, seek and knock, since they were not doing
so, Jesus had to ask, seek and knock in their place. Father! This was
a woeful thing.
Although Jesus longed to be sought after, he had to seek out others.
Although Heaven had made preparations for a long time in history,
desiring that humankind would serve Jesus, Jesus was not served.
Father, we eagerly hope and desire that at this time You will enable
us to feel the grieved heart of Jesus in this position.
Although Jesus could only shed tears and lament over the people on
earth, he longed for the land to be blessed by the Father. Please
bring that image of Jesus before our eyes today. Enable us to hear his
voice of instruction, to quietly adore and experience the heavenly
shimjung flowing from within his heart, and to bow in tears. Father,
we eagerly hope and desire this.
We have come to You with our hands upraised and bare. Please be
compassionate. Please leave nothing in our hearts but You. Let our
hopes, desires and demands be for nothing but what is Yours. We
eagerly hope and pray that You will make us sons and daughters who can
live holding onto, experiencing and fighting on with hearts deeply
shaken by Your infinite shimjung.
Father! Please have compassion on the audience here. As we have
realized that our minds and bodies are not our own, let the leading
authority appear who can claim them and everything else as Yours. Let
this be the time of promise when You can personally seal us, calling
us Your sons and daughters.
Father! I have come here with the words You have granted. Please be
present here. Remove any distance between the heart of the giver and
the hearts of the receivers. Father, we eagerly hope and desire that
You allow us to come to You with one heart and to return glory to You
by making ties with humankind. As we ask You to rule over everything
and reveal everything according to Your will, we pray in the name of
the Lord. Amen.
Jesus appeared on earth as the substance of God's hope. Before he
came, God had been working for four thousand years, installing
numerous prophets and good ancestors with a desperate and sorrowful
What Kind of Person Was Jesus to Be?
The only purpose for God's providential work in history was to
establish Jesus, the substance of hope, and to realize the hopes of
Heaven, the ancestors, and the whole of humankind. We know that Heaven
and our ancestors fought for this moment.
Jesus stood in this position. Jesus was God's only son, a value not
exchangeable with anything in the world. When Jesus appeared, so could
God. When Jesus rejoiced, so could God. When Jesus was glorified, so
was God. Jesus came as the glory of Heaven, equal to the whole from
the beginning to the end. Without him, nothing on earth or in heaven
could reveal its value, not even the seat of the heavenly power. Jesus
was the priceless center of the whole.
Jesus came with that heavenly value, yet he was seen from a human
standpoint. The Jewish nation boasted of their ancestors, their
history, and about being the chosen people, yet Jesus had a value
greater than any righteous person in their history. He was the center
of heaven and earth, without whom they could not gain their lives,
establish their church, organize their nation, or found the desired
God did not send Jesus for sorrow nor did He send him so that the
earth would receive him and be frustrated. God sent Jesus as the
central figure heaven and earth could receive and rejoice over.
The Life God Desired for Jesus as Opposed to the Reality
Every action of Jesus should have been able to paint the glory of
Heaven. The feelings he had in daily life should have been feelings of
glory that could strike down the historical conditions of resentment.
However, the life of Jesus was not like this. From the day humankind
received him, they should have put Jesus in a glorious position. They
should have served him and praised him to the utmost.
When the nation left him, however, Jesus stood in the position of
having lost the nation. Although God sent Jesus to hold onto the
nation, He could not but lose him. After losing him, He also lost joy
and the heavenly kingdom. We should know this fact.
We should know that Jesus was not meant to have such a fate. When he
was hit by tragedy and perished on the cross, he promised to gain the
glory of victory without suffering this tragedy again and to establish
the day when heaven and earth could rejoice. We should know that the
day he referred to was the last day, the day of the Second Coming.
To Live with Jesus
Jesus came to the earth with God's mission. He went through an earthly
life and went to the spiritual world. Now he is fighting along with
the Holy Spirit to achieve the historical purpose of God. We should
long for this Jesus. We should repossess this Jesus. We must live with
this Jesus. To do this, we should live with God. We can live with
Jesus only when we live with God. What then should we do? We should be
the ones who fulfill the hope of God, Jesus, and human history. We
should know that, without doing so, we cannot stand before Jesus when
he comes in glory.
What path should we follow to receive this Jesus? This is the problem.
Even if Jesus comes down from heaven to the earth, we are unable to
receive him as we are today.
We can receive and serve him only after we have the shimjung to
connect to his situation and complete the task he was to carry out on
the earth. We should know that the day when we meet this Jesus is the
day of Second Coming, the day to which today's Christians look
Therefore, to receive Jesus, it is necessary to fulfill our
responsibility on the earth. We can meet him only then. Thus, the
title of my speech today is "Let us Follow the Way of Jesus." I will
speak upon this topic.
Mary Longed for the Messiah to Come
The angel foretold Mary's mission to her. At this time, Mary backed
away, saying, "Since I do not know a man, it cannot take be." The
angel said, "Since this is a work of the omnipotent God, you shall
conceive by the Spirit." Mary then replied, "Lord! I am Your servant;
do as You will." When a meager virgin responded thus to Heaven, it was
a historic moment.
When we think about the Lord today, we easily think about his cross
and glorious resurrection; but we should go back further and consider
the situation of Mary and the position of Joseph's family.
This one remark of Mary's: "Lord! I am Your servant; do as You will,"
which she uttered when she heard the final word of Heaven, provided
the foundation for Heaven to come to humankind after four thousand
years of toil. At that time, Mary showed her heart toward the will of
the Lord. We should consider here that Mary had waited more eagerly
than anyone else for the one who would come with the will. With the
pure heart of a virgin, she longed more zealously than anyone else for
the Savior to come to Israel.
From the fact that she said, "Lord! Do as You will," we should
understand that Mary had greatly hoped and prayed for the hidden will
of God to appear. We should know that Heaven came to her upon the
foundation of her putting the heavenly will first. It was the same for
the saints. The birth of one saint required the foundation to receive
him. Thus, for the birth of saints, parents are needed who can bear
them and serve as the foothold of the will.
The Shimjung of Mary and Joseph
which Made the Birth of Jesus Possible
Mary said after being told about the birth of Jesus, "Lord! Do as You
will." This remark should be made at least once by every fallen
person. Not only Mary, but anyone seeking the path of life must have
the heart to say, "Lord, do as You will." Without such an answer, no
one can make a connection of life with Jesus.
Jesus came on such a foundation. After conceiving, Mary thought about
the will more than anyone else did as the baby grew inside her womb.
Believing that when the baby was born, the Messiah would appear and
clear away the resentment and sorrow of the nation, Mary must have
thought more than anyone else about the time when God's will for the
earth would be realized. Jesus was born in this way.
Without Joseph's family, how would Jesus have been born? If it had
been known to the world that Mary had conceived a child as a virgin,
she would have been stoned to death according to the law of Moses.
This was the worst violation of the law; it was considered
unpardonable in the social circumstances and situation of the age, the
worst shame upon the nation. Since Mary and Joseph had a shimjung
ardent enough to defy all the circumstances and come forward for the
will, Mary could give birth to Jesus.
Joseph and Mary took steps thinking only of the will. Because of this,
when their footsteps ran into the evil world, Heaven opened a way for
them to live. Jesus came through such footsteps. We should think about
Jesus, who prepared himself for the day when he could realize his
purpose by going through the three-year course in Egypt and living a
quiet life as a helper of his father, who did carpentry work for a
Among the words in the Bible, there is a passage, "Ask, and it will be
given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to
you." (Matthew 7:7) Jesus declared this with a desperate heart when he
embarked upon a pioneering course with the new gospel.
The Lifestyle Jesus Adopted in Response to the Jewish Nation
Jesus knew that this nation should serve the Messiah. Jesus watched as
the nation failed to ask with hearts more desperate than others for
the substance of the Messiah. The church left its place and failed to
seek when it should have sought with a heart more sorrowful than
others. Jesus saw the Jews failing to knock when they should have
knocked and waited for the heavenly gate to open.
The nation was eager for the realization of the heavenly will, yet
failed to fervently ask, seek and knock on the door for the
incarnation who could fulfill it. Jesus intended to realize the will
with a nation that did not know the true will of Heaven. Thus, he did
not pass even one day, one hour, or one second without thinking of the
Jesus' shimjung before the will was greater than Mary's. As he was
quietly helping Joseph make a living, his shimjung was such that the
more he watched the nation and lost confidence in them, the more
seriously he worried about the will and made a new determination. We
should know that he had a course of preparation like this for thirty
We should know that the life of Jesus was such that with a passionate
shimjung of worry about the will, he worked hard in an unknown place
to fulfill the responsibility for the sake of Heaven and the nation.
We should know that with a heart more fervent than anyone else's,
Jesus worked hard and ceaselessly in place of the nation to ask, seek
and knock on the heavenly gate.
The Shimjung and Life of Jesus during His Private Life
After he matured, Jesus ate and lived for the sake of the nation. He
worried most about how to serve the will of the Heavenly Father; but
there was no one who understood his thirty years of private life being
concerned for the heavenly will and who then asked, sought and knocked
Because of such circumstances, Jesus became miserable. For Heaven, he
had to ask, seek and knock in place of the nation. Above, Jesus had to
ask, find and knock on the door in place of Heaven; below, he had to
ask desperately in place of earth and the nation. He had to open the
heart of the nation by asking and knocking on their hearts with a
In this situation, Jesus prepared himself for thirty years for the
sake of Heaven. He prayed, "Heaven who loves me! Father who sent me!
Since I know that You sent me to show the way to the nation and to
connect their lives with You, please forgive their errors and
When the nation slept or indulged in pleasure, Jesus could not sleep
comfortably, rest, or enjoy himself, watching their unfaithfulness and
betrayal. He fought to hold onto the nation and connect them with
Heaven. Only Jesus himself knew about this. There was no one who could
console his heart.
Jesus must have been unable to suppress anxiety as he longed for the
time of the will. His shimjung as he set out with determination for
the practical course of the will must have been deeply pathetic,
ineffable, and woeful beyond human experience. We should realize that
with such a shimjung, Jesus worried about the course of his public
life, the time when he would put the will into practice.
Why Jesus Fasted for Forty Days
Jesus came in place of Heaven as the Savior of all people. Yet there
was no one who fathomed his heart and who came forward among the
nation, which was in need of salvation. They did not even know about
the thirty-year course of hard effort he had gone through, not to
mention his heart. Even the clique of John the Baptist, who had lived
in the wilderness and should have been responsible for the nation,
wound up opposing him.
Looking at the nation with such sadness, Jesus had a thread of
expectation in John the Baptist. However, when even he turned away
from Jesus, greater sorrow was added to Jesus' heart.
Although the time was approaching when he would appear to the nation
with the gospel of Heaven, the nation and John the Baptist were
nowhere to be found. Therefore, Jesus could not appear before
humankind. This is why Jesus went through the forty-day course of
fasting in the wilderness.
Even though Christians believe that the forty-day fast was a glorious
moment necessary for Jesus, this is not true. Jesus fasted because the
nation and John the Baptist's followers were nowhere to be found.
Furthermore, it was because the three wise men from the East and Anna,
Simeon and Mary, who had conceived Jesus with a definite purpose,
failed to acknowledge him when he set out on the course of praxis. We
should know that Jesus met such a miserable fate, although he was the
master of the earth and the prince who had come to save all people.
Jesus was supposed to have an altar of glory, joy and victory after
completing the four thousand years, but when he set out to build this
new altar, he met a sad fate. He was starving and being tested by
Satan. The scene of Jesus' being tested by Satan is a scene that
should be looked at by humankind with deepest sorrow. The hours of woe
during which Jesus was ridiculed and tested by Satan after starving
for forty days should have been a time of trial for the nation. Yet it
was transferred to Jesus as his sorrow. Naturally, Jesus could have
rejected, complained against, and cursed the nation that boasted of
being the chosen people. Instead he rose up, starving and fought with
the heavenly shimjung against Satan for the sake of the nation.
Jesus' position was unknown to the nation of Israel at this time. His
shimjung as he appeared before Heaven with determination in this
position was that no matter how woeful a situation he had to go
through, his purpose and his unbending commitment to the Father's will
would never change.
Jesus knew that the Father's will was to save all people through this
nation. He honored this, undeterred by starving or near nakedness; no
persecution or trial could destroy his heart, which had longed for the
will for the thirty years. Thus, whenever he appeared with such a
purpose, he could not help feeling, at the same time, the sorrow he
had on behalf of Heaven and the sorrow of God. We should know that
because he made an even firmer resolution for the will in such
circumstances, he was able to go back out, seeking the people who had
Although Jesus hoped that the Israelites would come to him while he
was alive, since they failed to do so, he became someone who could be
visited only after death. Because of their failure to serve him,
although he should have saved humankind in his lifetime, he could only
do the work of salvation after his death. The fate of today's
Christians and the whole of humankind is that although they should
have knocked, asked and sought through the shimjung of the living
Jesus, they knocked only after his death.
What is the Sorrow, Anger and Grief of God?
What is the sorrow of God? What is the anger and grief of God? It was
to have lost the time when humankind could ask, seek and knock while
Jesus was alive. It was to have lost the circumstances in which the
heavenly gate could have been opened and the heavenly secrets revealed
while Jesus was alive. When humankind woke up after losing it all,
Jesus was already gone to the spiritual world. Thus, having sent Jesus
away, humankind's fate was to ask, seek and knock on the heart of a
deceased Jesus. Hence, we who are in the last days should understand
that it was the sorrow of God, Jesus and humankind that people were
not found who could ask, seek and knock before Jesus was gone.
The tragedies of history continue because of the departure of Jesus.
Jesus admonished his disciples to go through a narrow gate in setting
out for a course of practice. This is the path Jesus walked.
The contents of Matthew 7 implicitly show the overall facts of Jesus'
life. You should know that the path of Jesus, who set out for the will
by asking, seeking and knocking, was rugged and mountainous rather
than smooth. It was the narrow gate of the cross, rather than a huge
and glorious castle of victory. When the nation did not believe in,
follow, look to, or like him, Jesus gathered the small number of his
disciples and admonished them, "Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate
is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who
enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard, that
leads to life, and those who find it are few." (Matthew 7:13-14) With
this remark, Jesus described his situation and that of his followers.
Jesus had been on the opposite side from the social circumstances. We
should know that by using himself as an example, Jesus was talking to
his disciples, who were midway between him and the social
When Jesus appeared before the nation in his course of practice, he
could not walk a paved road. The Jewish church, nation, and John the
Baptist all blocked his way. Thus, if there was a way for him to take,
it was a way no one else wanted to take. This road was without a door.
He had to make a road where there was none, and to make a door in the
wall that stood in the way. Jesus walked such a road.
The Road of Suffering Brought About by the
Unfaithfulness of the Chosen People
Jesus was sent to set up a door to Heaven and make a road through
which Heaven and all people could be linked. If the nation of Israel
had believed in and served him, the way of peace would have been
opened. If so, the Jewish church, established after four thousand
years of toil, would have become a wide road through which God could
come and go. Also, it would have become a door for all people seeking
the heavenly kingdom.
Since the nation opposed Jesus, the road and door for the nation were
blocked. Since the church opposed him, the road and door for the
church were closed. Since Jesus was persecuted by the Jewish nation,
the Jewish church, and even by his witnesses, disbelieved by his
disciples, he could not help walking the most tragic path for a human
Therefore, although it seems that there are many doors to Heaven from
the four thousand years, and there are even more if we consider the
six thousand years as a whole, we should know that the door Jesus went
through is the only one. On this earth, this door is not open. We
should never forget this.
There are many Christians in these last days. There are many who are
trying to augment their faith and to introduce and promote their
denominations. We should know clearly that although the path they
follow and the door they show looks like a passage to Heaven, it is
not the path Jesus pioneered while on the earth. It is not the narrow
The Path Jesus Walked
Jesus fought with his life in the three-year course of practice, and
departed. This was the path of the cross, the path of death, the path
on which he prayed for the blessing of his enemies even as he bled. He
went through this path, however, and resurrected. This was the path of
The path of Jesus was that of being betrayed by the nation, by the
church, and by the chosen people of God. It was a path of betrayal by
his parents and brothers and sisters, his beloved disciples, and even
the three main disciples.
Even though the multitude of humankind was to follow that path with
him, after Jesus went through it, the path was barred, and the door
was closed. The path the disciples went through remains open, however.
This is Christianity.
Therefore, we should follow the path of the disciples. Where do we go
through this path? We should go to the path of Jesus. We should have a
clear purpose in following this path.
What is this purpose? It is to realize the will of the Father. We
should also have clear content. This was the way of the will that
Jesus followed. The content and purpose of the will were discovered
and established by Jesus during his 33 years of hard work. Since the
content and purpose were found through the sacrifice of his thirty
years of life, no matter what trouble struck him, and although the
wall of death overwhelmed him, Jesus' content and purpose remained the
Since Jesus was like this, we should walk the road Jesus walked. Since
Jesus followed a narrow and rugged road, we should follow him and walk
that path today. This is the position in which we exist.
What kind of path did Jesus follow? Although he was faced with a hill
of death and swept away by a lethal tide, he pushed everything away
and went ahead, believing, "Since God is alive, He will grant me the
power of resurrection." Jesus had something so great he could push
death aside and resurrect. God could grant the power of resurrection
An Important Problem for Believers
Herein lies the important problem for today's believers. We should be
the ones who feel the heart with which Jesus asked, looking at the sad
world. We should be the ones who possess the heart with which Jesus
sought, looking at the deadened earth. We should be the ones who
possess the heart with which Jesus knocked, looking at the world
falling into ruins, eagerly trying to bring new life. Unless people of
such heart appear with the heavenly purpose and come forward with a
determination to dare to fight against the earth when it does not
follow, Heaven will not be able to lead us to the path of Jesus; nor
can we enter his gate.
We know that the believers of the last days must resolve the
historical resentment. By failing to achieve the original purpose for
which they were chosen, the first Israel lost the right of being the
chosen people. Because of the truth Jesus proclaimed, however,
Christians worldwide received the right of being the chosen people,
the second Israel. Christians in the last days, who have received the
right of being the second Israel, should become the second Israel
before the Lord of the Second Coming instead of being like Israel at
the time of Jesus. They should properly replace the lost first Israel.
What is Jesus working on in the heavenly kingdom? His grief is that he
failed to build the kingdom of the second Israel with a living body
while on the earth. Therefore, he and the Holy Spirit have been
mobilizing all the people and trying to form the realm of the chosen
people of the second Israel for two thousand years.
To Go Through the Gate of the Heavenly Kingdom
What will Jesus do once the realm of the chosen people of Israel is
formed? He is trying to build the kingdom of Israel. Thus, the
believers of the last days can become people of the heavenly kingdom
only when they go through the gate of the twelve disciples and enter
the gate of Jesus. The heavenly gate which will open before the
believers in the last days is marked with a form of the twelve
disciples. Hence, in entering the heavenly kingdom, the believers in
the last days have to go through the gate of the twelve disciples.
They must go in this direction. This is Christianity.
Today, however, many gates are open for Christians worldwide. They are
divided into numerous denominations. They claim that they are the ones
who have the heavenly gate, but this is not how the heavenly principle
Since Christianity started because of the twelve disciples centered on
Jesus, by destiny the believers of the last days have to go through
the gate of the twelve disciples. In other words, they have to be the
second Israel, in the form of the first Israel at the time of Jesus,
and must be found at the end of the six thousand years.
To what denomination do you belong, and through which gate are you
going? You should set out by first receiving on your forehead the mark
of the ideology of the twelve disciples. Only then can you enter the
gate of Jesus.
Worldwide Christianity must inherit and complete the mission since the
time of Jesus. Therefore, the time has come when they have to find the
gate of the twelve disciples. According to the fortune of heaven and
earth, the denominations, which have been multiplying almost
infinitely, are now entering into a unified realm without realizing
it. Thus, the time is coming when today's Christians of the world and
the followers of other religions should find out to which tribe they
belong and enter into the order of the twelve disciples of Jesus.
Just as Moses instituted twelve tribes and seventy elders, Jesus, who
came to organize the chosen people of Israel, also established the
twelve and seventy disciples. Although he tried to establish the
national ideology of Israel as the worldwide ideology in this way,
this aim was not achieved. That is why Christians worldwide are in the
realm of the second Israel today.
Even though they are in the realm of the second Israel, they do not
know it. They have become people who do not know to which tribe they
belong and have lost the order of the tribes. Jesus departed without
being able to organize the chosen people and the order of the twelve
tribes through the twelve disciples. Therefore, he will come back to
worldwide Christianity with the mission of organizing the form of
twelve tribes, seventy disciples, and 120 disciples on earth in
accordance with the heavenly providence.
Thus, now is the time when you should look for the one who has passed
the gate of the disciples and then the gate of Jesus. Although there
may be a true believer, unless he has a tribe and a leader, he cannot
participate in the building of the heavenly kingdom. When asked "Which
tribe are you?" he should be able to answer confidently, "I am this
Thus, in the last days, if one does not have a clear position in
relation to the ideology or nation, he becomes an ambiguous person. He
ends up in the position where he can be helped by no one.
Ladies and gentlemen! Denomination does not matter now. Now is the
time when you have to gather. The last days is the harvest time at the
end of human history when good people are gathered after six thousand
years. You should know that this is harvest time.
Until now, a variety of grains were planted in one field. Although
different grains can be planted in one field at sowing time, only the
same kind of grain can be put into one storehouse at harvest time.
This is harvest time.
What Kind of Time is the Last Days?
What was Jesus' task when he came? It was to organize the order of the
twelve tribes of Israel and to bring them into the heavenly warehouse.
Since he did not fulfill that mission, however, he said that the day
of its realization would come again. This day of promise is the day of
the Second Coming. For the believers on earth who are near the day,
the Jewish church is not a problem. The Sadducees are not a problem.
It is time to wander in search of the original tribe and leader.
You should have something with which to deny the past ideology,
customary devotion, traditional law, and habitual concepts and to turn
them over to the new aspect. Otherwise, you will not be able to stand
in the age of the worldwide ideology, which is equivalent to the age
of Jesus and the first Israel.
That is why factions of believers are developing. Denominations are
being divided further and further. Although they declare a unified
form outwardly, inwardly they are divided. Although they look united
from the outside, they are divided inside. The time is coming to bring
this into order. This is the age of the Second Coming.
When it becomes time to organize inwardly, the outward unified form
will appear with an opposing flag. This is inevitable. It is the same
phenomena as when a sprout comes out from a seed. Its shell breaks and
The seed and sprout of life are different. Likewise, what we need is
not the Bible itself; we need the life within it. We do not need Jesus
himself. We need God's will within him. This is the problem.
The Hope of Jesus
What did Jesus hope for at the time of his death? He did not care
about his body being sacrificed. His sole hope and purpose was the
fulfillment of the will. The word of Jesus was to guide the people to
become incarnations by giving them life. That was the purpose of the
word. Now the time has come when we should ask, seek and knock.
Jesus failed to establish the twelve disciples and have them inherit
the authority of the twelve tribes organized by Moses. That was Jesus'
Jesus should have asked God, found God, and knocked on the heavenly
gate while he was alive, but he could not. For the worldwide
Christians of the last days, however, the time is coming to ask, find
and knock on the heart with Jesus as he lives. This is the hope of God
What should we do to get to this position? Since we have fallen, we
should go up. To go up, we should first knock on the door of the
disciples. Now is the time when a figure in the position of the
disciples who fell at the time of Jesus will appear before Christians.
It is the time when three disciples should appear who can order
worldwide Christianity and organize the representative form of the
The three disciples who were the chosen from the others represented
the eastern gate. When explaining the heavenly gate, Heaven talked
about three gates each for east, west, south and north, three in the
east, three in the west, three in the south, and three in the north.
Centered on Jesus, Peter, James and John were the eastern gate. Thus,
Christianity can be symbolized as the Christianity of Peter, the
Christianity of James, and the Christianity of John. Catholicism is
the Christianity of Peter. Peter symbolizes faith. James symbolizes
hope, and John symbolizes love. In Christian history, there has been a
Christianity of Peter and a Christianity of James. The latter is
What Is Required in the Last Days
The Christianity of John is required in the last days. Jesus said that
John would not die in service of the Lord. John was not martyred.
Jesus said this with a premonition that in the last days, the
Christianity of John would arise anew and meet the Lord. John was dear
to and deeply loved in the bosom of Jesus. John symbolized love. Thus,
the Christianity of John is that of love, and in the last days, such a
Christianity should emerge.
Although this has been shown, Christians still do not know which gate
they should enter. The gate of Peter and of James are fine, but we
should go through the gate of John, of love. This gate of love is the
one Jesus beheld straight ahead. Although Heaven has fought for six
thousand years for this gate, and Jesus has fought for two thousand
years for it, this gate, the hope of history, has not been opened yet.
Thus, Heaven tried to fulfill the promise by installing a
representative who could open the gate. This is why He spoke of a
bride to fulfill the word.
What should humankind do for the returning Lord? They should pray.
They should console him by saying, "We realize that this is the sorrow
you left behind on the earth. We see that this is the resentment you
failed to resolve while alive. How hard did you toil, fighting in
sorrow, with the spite of history before you?"
Humankind must complete the providence of salvation as the historical
figures and perfecters of salvation. Unless they become living
disciples, like the disciples before the betrayal, they cannot face
Instead of being like the three disciples who denied Jesus at
Gethsemane and Calvary, Christians worldwide, who are preparing
themselves for the day of the Second Coming in these last days should
become disciples who can command their churches, embrace the great
number of believers, pray in place of Jesus, and go over the hill of
the cross in Jesus' place. A church should be that kind of gathering.
What Should Humankind Do before the Lord of the Second Coming?
The history of religion is the history of restoration. Jesus said, "I
am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and
the end." (Revelation 22:13) "Alpha" and "Omega" are words that came
into being because of the fall. Do people today talk about eternity?
What they are talking about is not eternity. Alpha came into being
because the fall did, and Omega was introduced to refer to the return
by restoration. Unless the ideology of the Alpha, which Jesus had to
achieve in the state of Israel, is completed as the ideology of the
Omega with the believers in these last days, Jesus cannot appear.
Jesus is the hope and joy of God and humankind. Until this ideology of
Alpha is completed as the ideology of Omega, however, he cannot come
in joy. We should know that if he does not appear in joy, he is fated
to appear in sorrow. People do not know this. The heavenly kingdom is
not built by whim. With a self-centered faith, insistence and
ideology, you cannot connect to the shimjung of the heavenly kingdom.
For this reason, the believers on earth are still unable to go through
the gate opened by Jesus. If they had gone through it, they would have
become the bride. This is why Jesus stopped Mary Magdalene when she
tried to hold him. By this, Jesus meant, "Since I have not appointed
you as a disciple, come to me through the gate of the disciples." This
is how heavenly law is.
The Reason the Bible Was Primary
Thus, we should see if there is someone who has the mission of being
the disciple for humankind. Now is the time to wander in search of
such a person. Ladies and gentlemen! All kinds of things happened in
the first church: speaking in tongues, spiritual work, prophesying,
and so on. Since the abundant spiritual phenomena in the first church
caused ignorant people confusion, to prevent this, church leaders
stipulated, "The biblical words are primary." These phenomena are
predicted in the Bible: "in the last days, it shall be, God declares,
that I will pour out My spirit upon all flesh. . ." (Acts 2:17) Thus,
the phenomena that appeared in the first church will emerge in
Christian history in the last days, and there will be many who will be
called crazy, evil sects, and heretics. Our Unification Church is a
representative member of this group.
The Reason for Much Spiritual Phenomena in the Last Days
The one upon whom the Spirit has been poured cannot contest it. If he
does not know why, Heaven will tell him. When he opens his eyes, he
sees the spiritual world. When he acts, he acts for the spiritual
world. He thoroughly differs from you. He even looks crazy. Did Jesus
look smart? In the eyes of the people at the time, he was stupid and
In the future, such spiritual phenomena will sweep across the world,
the nations, and the churches. Hence, the number of mental patients is
increasing exponentially. The world of fear and anxiety is coming.
This is because Jesus, the son of God, led life and faced the will
with anxiety, insecurity, and an agitated heart. This is why the
fortune of the world is flowing this way.
It eventually comes about that the direction cannot be found.
Phenomena occur wherein the true seems to be false, and the false
seems to be true. The age is coming when falsity becomes superior, and
truth becomes inferior; falsity prospers and truth is greatly
weakened. We should go through and beyond such an age.
Considering that today is the last days, an important problem for
earnest Christians is where the twelve disciples are to organize
Christianity (the worldwide and second Israel) and where the Messiah
is coming from to command the twelve disciples.
The Task of Believers in the Last Days
Since the disciples of Jesus were scattered in all directions, to
restore this, the prayer at Gethsemane centering on Jesus should be
revived for the world. The believers should hear the prayer of
Gethsemane everywhere on earth. They should be able to hear the voice
with which the disciples prayed afterward. For this reason, many
appear these days who claim to be Peter, James, John or Andrew.
Furthermore, some claim to be Abraham or Noah. It is reversing the
course. This is because neither Noah nor Abraham had an order of
tribes like the twelve disciples of Jesus.
Among the twelve disciples, we should find the three who were the
chosen of the twelve. Among the three, we should find John. Only then
can we participate in the first resurrection. Have you ever had a time
of prayer in which you longed for Gethsemane, where Jesus prayed with
the three disciples, fighting for the day of fulfilling the hope? When
Jesus was praying without sleep and with blood and sweat, they were
dozing. Since they did not know the shimjung of Jesus, they all
betrayed him when he was crucified at Golgotha. Thus, the time has
come when we should find people who pray in blood and sweat in place
Jesus, the bridegroom, left in this manner for the sake of humankind.
What then should we do today to experience his shimjung? Just as Jesus
prayed for his enemy's blessing while being persecuted by the Jewish
church and carrying the cross, if there is a group of people who can
pray for their enemy's blessing while being driven to the cross by the
Christians, who will they be? They are heretics, just like Jesus. Just
like Jesus, they appear to be traitors to the nation, heretics and
destroyers of the established order. Only when such a movement arises
can the world find a new direction.
What Is Needed to Fulfill the Ultimate Hope
You cannot remove all the dark clouds in your hearts and arouse a
liberation movement of the spirit to change lives with the established
religions. No logic or philosophical system can change a person's
heart. These methods will not work even if thousands of years go by.
When humankind declared the omnipotence of science, they believed that
it could create world peace. That turned out to be wrong. They thought
that through religions and God's chosen people, humankind could be
saved. This turned out to be wrong. No certain answer can be given
The one thing that is needed in this situation is the image of the
Christ, who quietly prayed for the blessing of humankind even as he
was crucified. We need this image. Even in the place where he
transcended death and abandoned all attachment to life and personal
hopes, Jesus still left behind hope for his enemies. Since Jesus said
that he would come as he left and that he was the Alpha and the Omega,
in the last age of Christianity, a bride should appear who resembles
Jesus. You should know that this is such a place.
Such people may arise within world Christianity today. However, with a
little mistake they may repeat the course of the first Israel. Their
error is almost unavoidable. That is why today's Christians should be
awake. They should stay awake and pray with Jesus in Gethsemane. They
should be crucified with Jesus. Since the heavenly tragedy engraved in
the heart was caused by the death of Jesus, we should be able to long
for the one who can console Heaven with the heavenly heart, "Since I
will go even if I should die with him, accept me and resolve the
burning vengeance in Your heart."
The believers in the last days should find such a comrade, such a
friend and leader. You should know that the time of joy should be open
to all people when they can meet Jesus again, Jesus who could have
given were he asked, who could have come if he were sought, who could
have opened the door if it were knocked upon.
Considering the divisions in the established churches today, we can
see clearly that they cannot serve as the foundation of life. Thus,
the sincere leader and young people with the heavenly shimjung should
brace themselves against the forces of the established churches.
Jesus said, "Beware of false prophets." (Matthew 7:15) Who was the
false prophet? It was not the disciples, but turned out to be the
established Jewish church and the nation of Israel, which opposed him.
Today, social developments are following this course. Jesus said to
beware of false prophets and struck those who were preoccupied with
outward displays by giving them hardships. He also led the dismantling
of the Jewish church, which was turning to ceremony and external form.
Jesus prayed for the enemies' blessing at Gethsemane and Golgotha.
This was not for Satan, but because he had to subjugate Satan and take
back the people from Satan's bosom. He had hope for them and prayed
for their blessing even though they were in Satan's bosom.
Today's Christianity is slipping into formalism, for it revolves
around its area of power. If there are concerned leaders and young men
and women, there surely will occur a movement with a slogan that the
church cannot be entrusted to the hands of Christians, who have lost
their lives. There will develop movements in which they will say, "We
cannot trust the pastors and elders in our church. Let us lay people
run the church."
If this time comes, know that it is the end. It is the end. Thus, the
time of pastors will pass by, and the time of elders will come. At
this time of elders, certain elders will come out and go wild. After
this period, deacons will revolt. After this, when the time comes for
the lay people to rise, know that this is the final day.
The one who came to save those who stained and betrayed history was
the historic leader, Jesus; but Israel led the leader away and killed
him on the cross. Heaven knows this clearly. Now is the time to have a
liberation movement centering on the common people. After World War I,
the upper class succeeded. After World War II, the middle class
succeeded. Now is the time for workers and farmers, that is, the lower
class, to succeed. Faith is also like this.
Christians say that the time has come when they should follow their
consciences, rather than leaders. In other words, it is not a time to
look for a leader but a time to seek the self. The word, "Ask, and it
will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be
opened to you." (Matthew 7:7) is not something you need in heaven. It
is a word needed on earth. God did not send Jesus because the heavenly
kingdom needed him. He was sent because he was needed on earth.
Since history collapsed for various reasons, Heaven is longing for a
brave person who can come out to resolve the historical grudges. Who
then is the brave person of the new age? It is the young men and women
who can go back to the first church and burn with the spirit of the
disciples, who can be whipped in place of the Lord. It is the young
men and women who, upon seeing how corrupt Christianity is, can take
up the responsibility although their bodies are scratched and whipped.
There will be a day in the last days when such young men and women
will unite and seek a new leader. The Korean church will become like
this before long.
Who Is the Brave Person of the New Age?
Today, there are many Christian groups, including the National Council
of Churches and the World Council of Churches. Inside, however, they
are empty. For solving the internal problems, we need young men and
women of Heaven who are like the believers who burned with the
shimjung of Jesus and moved ahead under the oppressive rule of the
ignorant Emperor Nero. We need such brave people of Heaven. If such
phenomena actually occur in the last days, what should Christians do?
They should think about this again.
Just as the Renaissance revived Hellenistic culture and pioneered
humanism, today we should revive the Christianity of two thousand
years ago and build the God-centered heavenly kingdom of Jesus. We
need no intermediate bridge. Now is the last days. That is why strange
phenomena are occurring, Elder Na, Elder Park, the Unification Church,
etc. You should be able to analyze this spiritually. This is your
Ladies and gentlemen! Now the historical age of the seventy disciples
is coming on a worldwide level. Since history is the providence of
restoration, it goes back up according to the law. It goes back up to
find what was lost. After the age of seventy disciples comes the age
of the twelve disciples. In Korea, there have been many fortune
tellers who had this position. Next, the age of the three disciples
comes. Three forms of representative movements will occur.
Where Are You?
As it is the Christian course of faith to follow the footsteps of
Jesus, where are you? Are you in the wilderness period of Jesus? Or
are you at the stage when Jesus was growing up in Galilee? Where are
you? Ladies and gentlemen! The life of Jesus was the prototypical life
of person, the path a human being should follow. In other words, it
was the model for human beings. But where are you? Are you at the
forty-day fast of Jesus, in the three-year public course, in the
middle of the prayer at Gethsemane, or on the path where life and
death was finally decided on the cross?
We who should follow the path of Jesus should go through the gate of
Christianity, which is the gate of the disciples, and the narrow gate
of the Christ. Where are the believers who are heading for the narrow
gate? Nowhere. Today's church officials are even preventing them from
going through the narrow gate.
Jesus prayed overnight, and said to pray without rest. Where will we
go if we pray without rest? We will forget the human world and go into
the spiritual world. Where will we go if we pray unceasingly in the
spiritual world? We can meet an angel. If we go further, we can meet
Jesus and the Holy Spirit.
The path of Christians is to go through the unknown course of
humanity, that is, through the door of the unknown world through which
Jesus went. However, that door is blocked. Although the disciples led
them to the place of death, they did not explain what kind of place
the heavenly kingdom is; nor did they explain the path of Jesus. There
has been no truth that could explain it and enable us to experience
the shimjung Jesus felt during his life.
Thus, you who came to the Unification Church should follow the path
Jesus took. You should enter the gate Jesus opened and entered. In
this way, you go to the place where Jesus resurrected. We have
gathered to do so. Thus, we should plead with the world to take
responsibility for the mission.
Why did Jesus return to the earth after the resurrection? Although we
have thoroughly followed the course of resurrection Jesus walked, we
should not be elevated in resurrection. After having the joy of
resurrection, Jesus went out to humankind in the realm of death,
instead of being elevated to heaven.
The Path We Should Follow
Likewise, when you stand before the will and in the place of the grace
of God, you should run toward the earth, rather than toward Heaven.
You should run toward the earth. Have you been leading this kind of
life of faith?
Jesus knew that, even after the resurrection, he should not forget the
central point of saving the earth. Therefore, he visited the
disciples, who were the worst traitors. The betrayal of the disciples
caused more resentment than that of any nation or church. Since Jesus
regained the disciples, however, he could make a connection with the
What will happen after you complete the course of faith? If you are
resurrected, what will happen after that? Only after you come to the
earth and do all that is required of you, thereby creating the clan
with whom you can stay and who can bear witness to you, can you go to
the Lord. As Jesus did before God, so should you.
Have you ever received grace that deeply stirred your heart? If so,
just as Jesus did during his forty-day fast, you should remember the
sorrow of the six thousand years and work in spite of persecution to
establish the needed heavenly foundation.
You may know well that when the Lord comes back, without such a
foundation and environment, you cannot stand as brides before the
Lord, the bridegroom. This is why you should establish such a
This is the will of goodness. This will is desired by Jesus, God and
the Holy Spirit. You should realize this will. This will is to live
with Jesus. The purpose and content of the will lies in living with
To go to that place, although you have received the grace of
resurrection today, you should not be content with that. You should
visit the people in the realm of death and set up at least a minimum
condition before Heaven.
The Purpose of the Will is to Live with Jesus
After the resurrection, Jesus regained the twelve, seventy and 120
disciples. Afterward, with the advent of the Holy Spirit, he
established a church.
Likewise, in the process of our restoration, we need the True Parents
first. Afterwards, there should be the eight family members of Noah,
the twelve brothers of Jacob, seventy family members, and 120
relatives. Until such a foundation for the will is completed, Jesus
cannot engage in the second ceremony of praxis.
If you have inherited the spirit of Jesus, you should have the form of
the living Jesus, thereby establishing living people like the twelve
disciples, living people like the seventy disciples, and a living
church like the 120 disciples. Only then can the movement of building
the heavenly kingdom start.
It says in the Bible, "'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name,
and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your
name?' And then will I declare to them, 'I never knew you; depart from
me, you evildoers.'" (Matthew 7:22-23) Jesus said that he would not
He also said, "There is no one who can come to me but those who follow
the Father's will." What is the Father's will? What hurt the heart of
Jesus, who was trying to reclaim the law of heaven and earth by curing
diseases and exercising power? What was the purpose he tried to
fulfill? Only those who understand it and achieve the will can be the
brides of Jesus.
Jesus showed us this path because he wanted us to live like this.
Thus, only when you can prostrate yourselves before Heaven as the
purposeful entity of Jesus who can resolve his sorrow can you follow
him and become his brides. Please bear this clearly in mind. Let us
Father! Until now we did not know what Your will was; nor did we know
the will concerning history, the age, or our individual lives. We
thank You, however, for the grace of letting us understand the
historical will, for the grace of teaching us the shimjung of the age,
of life, of daily living, and even of time. We are truly grateful.
With this shimjung, we will have to go through the gate of the
disciples and follow Christ through the narrow gate. We know that we
can avoid judgment only when we more than attain the grace of
resurrection by winning over the hill of death and leaving the
resurrected tribe of goodness on the earth to bear fruit.
Since you said that a tree not bearing good fruits will be cut down,
we will have to be trees of goodness. Please allow us to become trees
of goodness and bear fruits of goodness. As Jesus has been fighting
for two thousand years to bring fruits of goodness, please guide us to
bear fruits of goodness today as trees of goodness. Father, we eagerly
hope and desire that You allow us to be sons and daughters who know
how to sow the seeds.
Father, we eagerly hope and desire that You allow us to be the ones
who can realize that this is Your will; this is the purpose for which
You came to the earth; this is the content for which You have fought.
Let us be the ones who can live, fight and hold You, consumed with
this will, this purpose, and content.
We eagerly ask You to lead us so that we become the best filial sons
and daughters who can console the Lord and You after fulfilling the
will that remains and running the required road. We pray all these
words in the name of the Lord. Amen.
