OUR FAMILY AND THE
DISPENSATION - PART I

Everyone in the world has a fervent desire to have a family. We must
first realize what kind of families we have in the fallen world
because without seeing this clearly we cannot understand the urgency
with which God has been searching for the original family. When we
look throughout the world around us to find families which are
centered upon God, we discover that there are none. Such a family is
yet to come. No matter how many members a family may have, it still is
a family within the realm of Satan.
Centering on the family a clan is created which is burdened by the
same fallen nature, and it is further surrounded by the nation and the
world. In that situation, no matter how much that family may want to
live the ideal, it will still be influenced by the surrounding evil
circumstances. Because this family must communicate with all levels of
its corrupted surroundings we know that it will be unable to remain
When the family deteriorates, the individuals who constitute that
family also deteriorate. We can witness this deterioration throughout
the world, even though there is not a single individual who wants his
family to decay and deteriorate. Furthermore, no one wants to see
other families deteriorate, especially God, but without a doubt that
is happening. What is the cause of this?
Since no one desires this deterioration we must conclude that there is
some invisible force which is opposing God's will for the family.
Clearly Satan is doing this. Families are dominated by distrust and
self-centered individualism. Many husbands no longer trust their
wives, and most wives do not trust their husbands. Even children and
parents do not trust each other because each individual is centered on
In such families each person is seeking to center the family's love
upon himself. Love is meant to be given to others, yet increasingly
people are demanding love, and eventually their relationships center
on animalistic love. To get this love they even dare to sacrifice
other people, rather than sacrificing themselves. In this seeking to
satisfy themselves with love they are taking everything from others.
Where does this originate? We are destined to reap whatever we sow. If
we had not sown this self-centeredness anywhere, then we would not
The world trend toward corruption
In the midst of these circumstances everyone senses that mankind and
human history are coming to an end. If there is Satan then why can he
cause such destruction at this time in mankind's history? Satan's
purpose is 100% different from God's will, and he would like to
fulfill his desire for mankind. This world trend toward corruption is
centered on the family, which is fast deteriorating. The morals that
societies have taught have played a very important role in history,
but societies are now yielding to corrupting influences.
It is becoming clear that Satan's goal has been the destruction of
individuals, as well as families. The elements of family disruption
have been present throughout human history, but previously they have
been held in check by moral teachings and social laws. But now, in the
final days of human history, men are seeking freedom outside these
restraints. Thus the existing elements of evil which were previously
suppressed are now being exposed.
In the past, husbands and wives may not have always felt deep respect
or love in their relationships. But now family situations are getting
worse in that parents do not even know their children any more, and
respect is barely maintained between them. Now even that relationship
is on the verge of being broken down. Instead of building deep
relationships, the kind of love found in families today is acting to
break down the family ties. At this time in history people cannot
recognize what love is, and it seems that everything we previously
held as valuable has crumbled. What remains to be broken up in the
Love has always been valued by people. However, as love is breaking
down those people who value love as much as their lives are also about
to be broken down. We have been thinking of love as an eternal thing,
the last thing we would like to destroy. Yet in the fallen world today
love can be corrupted and broken down within a few hours or days.
In other words, what Satan has been striving for seems about to be
accomplished. Satan has been trying to disrupt all of man's most
precious relationships, and he seems to be succeeding. After that,
where can we go? The world itself is hell on earth. There is no order
of love, no order within life, no order within societies and no order
within nations. The world we see now is in chaos. No individual wanted
things to turn out this way; God did not want this to happen either.
Only Satan has been wanting this and continuously working to achieve
it, doing his best to destroy man. All his desires are now coming to
Satan had his purpose, and the people have been defeated and contained
by his plan and strategy. In the process, mankind has completely lost
all sense of value. It may be our desire to have good families, but
what is being realized at this time is completely contrary to our
ideal and now we find ourselves in hell. If there was ever any kind of
hell, this is the worst in history. Let us imagine that there is a
very good, courageous, confident man who does not want to be
influenced by this world trend. Despite his efforts he would be
absolutely unable to reverse this world trend and assert himself in
goodness. Do you feel that this is where we stand now?
However, we cannot afford to be either completely discouraged or
destroyed. Hippies and yippies have been searching in their own way
for something different, something better. Are they living in an ideal
way? Are they really content and secure? Did they find the truth? They
have looked around completely but could find no way out either. After
going in many different directions they have also come to the
conclusion that there is no way out.
All mankind is now feeling that the only way left to find the ideal is
to be constantly doing something more exciting. When this happens,
they no longer are concerned about the world or nation or anything
bigger than themselves. The lucky ones manage to take care of
themselves, but many are destroyed in their search for happiness. For
instance, drugs are used throughout this nation, and some have been
pushing drugs, providing them to anyone who would try them. Once a
person is addicted he inevitably faces an early death. Who would have
done that? It clearly must be Satan who is pushing these drugs. After
Satan succeeded in breaking down the love in families and in
individual relationships, then he introduced drugs on a large scale.
Once people are addicted to drugs they want to replace ideal love with
physical stimuli. No one else but Satan could do these things or would
Love is invisible; therefore even if it is crushed the physical body
still remains intact. Now Satan wants to attack even the physical body
and destroy it as well. He is not concerned with the bodies of old
people, as they are about to die anyway, but Satan will never be
satisfied until he can destroy the young people who are full of vigor
and life. We know that Satan, the ultimate being of evil, is striving
to annihilate young people through drugs. Then Satan will claim
generation after generation and no matter how much people long to
experience love and obtain their highest ideals, they will be
incapable of achieving them. Satan will proclaim to the world that
mankind will be under his dominion for eternity.
This is all happening on the family and individual levels, but what
kind of nation would attack another nation in this way? The communist
nations have exactly followed this process in order to undermine and
demoralize the free nations. Their strategy is to immobilize the young
people by destroying their lives with drugs. One communist country
actually appropriates part of its national budget for raising opium
and making it available in the free nations. This is actually
It is very obvious that if individuals and families are being
compelled toward destruction that the nation also is doomed to
destruction. This is clearly Satan's undertaking, because no one else
but Satan wants something like this to happen. This is now going on
all around the world. I am not just describing some concept but
everyday events which can be witnessed. We are heartbroken by this.
From the standpoint of God's dispensation, how can it be possible to
establish the ideal family among these overwhelmingly destructive
Life rights and love rights
Anyone whose love has been bankrupted cannot think about his nation,
and no longer cares about Satan succeeded in breaking down the love in
anything. If someone's love has been destroyed then families and in
individual relationships, then he in- no matter how true an ideal you
may teach him, he just cannot listen. The Carter Administration has
been speaking of human rights, but even more valuable than civil
rights is the right to live and the right to love. These two are more
important than so-called human rights.
If you were told to choose between human rights, life rights, and love
rights, which would you choose? You would certainly choose something
other than human rights. If you had to choose between the right to
live and the right to love, which would you choose? If you had to
choose between becoming a slave or being killed, which would you
choose? Why do you choose death? Wouldn't you rather become a slave
and keep on living in hopes of finding a better life somehow? There
would be no blacks alive in America today if slavery were worse than
death. The recent television series "Roots" deals with the history of
Africans who were captured and brought to America as slaves. Why
didn't they kill themselves if their human rights were more precious
than living? Under this standard, are human rights more important, or
life rights more important? We must have a clear idea about this.
In choosing between life and love, would you rather just live life, or
would you rather go after love? For you it is easy to choose love, but
are you really that way? Take hippies, for example. If we ask them the
same question do you think they would say, "I will follow after love"?
Actually they do not want to care about anything. They just want to
We usually do not think about it much but every day we witness how
many people would rather simply exist than be troubled by the demands
of loving. Hippies, for instance, may love another person very much in
the morning, but somehow by the afternoon their love changes.
Nevertheless, deep in their hearts everyone is thinking, "I shouldn't
be this way. I should pursue love to its utmost. I should even
sacrifice my life for the cause of love."
I just heard that in some parts of American society couples even
exchange spouses for a week or so. That love has far less value than
life. You said earlier that you would choose love rather than life,
but is this the general attitude in America? When it comes to love, no
one knows anything about anything! With all this confusion it is
obvious why we are really, really on the spot in trying to pursue the
The best human thinking has recognized that love is the most valuable
and worthwhile thing. If you look around it is difficult to find
someone righteous enough to protect our human rights, and even more
important, we find that there is no one who is capable of raising the
world out of this animalistic love. No matter how good our ideal may
be, it seems impossible to fulfill it. After looking everywhere, we
completely lose hope. What if you had never heard about the
Unification Church and someone were to ask you, "Is there some hope
for finding a true love or is there absolutely no hope?" What would
you have answered? Can you see hope in this situation? Wherever you
look, there is no hope. Where could you go to find hope?
As you look everywhere can you find a man who can say, "I can offer
hope"? You can even look at the great political leaders and the
presidents of nations. Can you find hope in President Carter, for
instance? He is like any other human being. Can you find hope in a
political party, or in a nation such as America? Is there any family
within this society which could become a source of hope? How about
your own parents? How about the feelings of a wife toward her husband,
or the feelings of a husband toward his wife? How about husbands and
wives--can they regard themselves as the source of hope in the future?
Hopelessness is spelled out everywhere. The earth is filled with it;
even the universe seems filled with hopelessness. Do you see that? Our
conclusion is that now is the time that Satan, the master of
hopelessness, has achieved his great success. Then who is the master
of hope? Invisible God. Only because of God is there a possibility for
those who have lost hope to find hope once again.
Once a person feels hope, Satan cannot defeat him
We can be grateful that even though man is being pulled to his death
inch by inch, man still has some life remaining. Man can see his path
of destruction, yet he still continues looking desperately for life,
knowing that somehow he should not be the way he is, If there were any
way out he would take it. Something deep within his soul is crying out
Men everywhere get sick, lose their eyesight, and then their hearing.
Perhaps they can no longer eat, and then they lose the use of their
limbs. Yet even on the verge of death, would a person not be very
grave about his life, contemplating the death that awaits him? If the
news came that there was a new medicine, wouldn't he still want to try
it out? Mankind at this moment is in a desperate position and needs
the news of someone who can offer hope in the face of this sure death.
Wouldn't people jump at that hope? With people feeling that their
deaths are not far off they will become very serious, and react to
news of the slightest hope. This is where we are situated.
When a person who is desperately sick hears the hopeful news, he would
go immediately and try that remedy. As the cure begins to work, his
body would begin to heal gradually. When he is completely recovered
where would he turn? He would go straight forward in search of love.
Having been so close to death, he would be almost crazy to perfect his
love. Such a person would certainly be most precious to God. After he
is cured and love revives within him, this person would begin urgently
seeking out other brothers and sisters who are on the same deathbed
that he was. His greatest desire would be to find and revive them,
just as he himself was revived. God would certainly be touched by his
concern and want to see many such people here on this earth.
That person will meet many people who are not aware of what has
happened and who, out of their ignorance, are indifferent. Some people
will even directly oppose the cure he wants to spread, but then he
will be really serious to overcome their opposition and bring the
truth to light. At first this kind of thing will happen sporadically,
but inevitably the persecution will gather momentum. In the midst of
this world of despair, we have to realize clearly that Satan is
working powerfully at the edge of hopelessness. But a cure is now
appearing along with a hope which cannot be removed from the earth. It
is about to be brought out into the open and when it becomes visible
to all, people will jump at it. Rather than trickle toward it one by
one they will dash to it like a flooding river. Can you imagine that
Even though that first person was on the verge of death, he still had
the power to move quickly when the right avenue opened before him.
Eventually a whole river of hopeful people will penetrate the walls
surrounding the satanic world and come to God's side. At this time in
history the world is sinking in despair, misery, and hopelessness.
When one person can manage to break out of this situation, he will
soon be followed by floods of people also wanting to get out. Once
they break out and are revived in every way, they will never want to
even think of the hell which mankind has been held in generation after
What if a person was somehow successful in making his way out to
health and love, but then was kidnapped back again by his own parents
urging him, "Stay with us; continue living like us." Would he be able
to live there or would he try to escape at any cost? His decision
would depend on how much he craved freedom and true love. If he deeply
treasured their value then once he escaped a whole army from the
satanic world could not keep him imprisoned.
If a whole army tried to kidnap me I would fight with my life. Anyone
who has led a miserable life in the past has sufficient power to
resist. Those members who were kidnapped and persuaded to leave the
Unification Church did not have the internal power to free themselves,
and were probably never deeply serious in their commitment. Some
members, who perhaps came from the despair of a hippie background, are
deeply serious and treasure the hope that they have found. Those who
have never seen death cannot really experience the seriousness and
value of life and love.
Those who have really suffered in bondage have deeply wept to find a
way out of their misery. Once they free themselves, penetrating the
barrier of despair, not even an army could successfully kidnap them.
Once such a man has penetrated this wall he will work harder than
anybody else. Once a person who sees absolutely no hope around him
feels that there is hope, then even the formidable power of Satan can
no longer defeat the desires of his original nature. It may look as if
there is not even a tiny hole where hope might penetrate, but one day
this avenue will be opened and on that day the people will flood out.
God has been thinking about this all along.
We can say that Satan has been quite successful in this world because
mankind sees no hope whatsoever. But in God's sight Satan is not
successful. Once men clearly understand this then they will realize
their own value even more, as they compare the present with their past
under Satan. Therefore, no matter how successful Satan seems to be at
the very end, Satan will eventually be obligated to help God complete
God has been waiting to see how much Satan would take, and indeed
Satan has taken absolutely everything. He not only invaded man's human
rights, but he invaded the life rights and then even the love rights
of billions of people. There is no right that Satan has not invaded.
What remains for Satan to do?
At this point the historical conclusion is that the only thing
remaining for Satan to do is surrender. God has been pondering the
best way to bring people out of the misery of their unprincipled
lives. In considering the most ideal nation to initially penetrate
this wall of hopelessness, He has settled on America. The hippies of
America have explored the depths of corruption and despair and would
therefore value new hope the most. If someone can work with them to
successfully penetrate this wall of despair and break through to the
other side, they will be very eager to go out and do the same for
others. The organization which can offer tangible hope to these
hippies must be the group which is historically capable of doing God's
In looking at a situation such as this we can say that Satan has been
helping to achieve God's plan. So many existing churches talk about
God and about saving the world, but their members are generally older
people. The young people have already gotten out of the Christian
churches and become hippies or non-conformists. Thus those that we
gather into the Unification Church are often young people who have
been living a hippie life; ours is the only group that can really
offer hope and salvation to them.
Love is a person's most precious possession
Presently we do not have any more status in the world than the
hippies, but we are very different. The hippies live lives that are
without order and they do not want to come under anybody's direction
or dominion. In contrast our lives are very orderly: we go out
fundraising and witnessing, and we are very effective. Furthermore,
hippies are eating and sleeping for themselves, but we are living for
this country and for our Heavenly Father. They are in despair and do
not know where to turn, but we are full of power and vigor and have
found love. In every way our lives are completely different from
Through developing a relationship with God we come to honor human
rights to the utmost. There are no racial differences in our church;
each race is equally great and valuable. We have come to realize that
one human life is greater than the entire universe. Suppose someone
like Rabbi Davis were working in an unjust and hateful way in a
communist country; the leaders would give an order for him to be
eliminated, and he would have been killed a long time ago. But
regardless of all he has done to us we do not even have the desire to
Some of our young members came to me, saying, "What Rabbi Davis is
doing is absolutely unforgivable. We cannot let him continue working
like that because he is hurting too many lives. Isn't it better to
work directly against him and save all of those who are being hurt by
him?" But I said, "No, can you quote an example of God killing a man
because he was wicked? Instead He just waits." A man still has an
opportunity to recover himself even until the last minute.
Do we invade others' life rights? Does anyone teach what we teach,
that love is of such utmost importance and value that the greatest
crime is the invasion of love? We would not want an individual apart
from his love. In the end, love is between an individual and God, and
no one can stand between a person and his love; that love is his most
precious possession. From the earth to the heavens we want to cherish
and protect his right to love. The one thing of greatest value is
Is anyone of us encouraged to take love lightly like the hippies do?
Brothers and sisters are not even allowed to hold hands in our church.
We are taught that when a brother and sister meet they must just talk,
and then not even in privacy. Why? In order to prevent a cheap love
from invading their hearts like it has invaded the hippies' lives we
are living a completely different standard than the world is living.
For someone who cannot understand deeply, our standard might look like
a violation of human rights, and he would accuse us, saying, "Everyone
should have the right to do as he wants." But actually our way is the
only workable way to protect human rights. Life is the same way. If
someone wants to go and kill himself, why should anyone try to stop
him? It's his own life. But such an attitude is not right. People who
tried to prevent a suicide have actually been accused of treating the
person unjustly and taking away his personal freedom. But from the
heavenly point of view, being concerned about another person leads to
complete freedom, and this is what all people have been dreaming about
Likewise, nobody tells you to get involved in the events that are
happening around the world; you are completely free to do nothing. Yet
when others' human rights or life rights are violated, yours are
violated also. You have no guarantee and no security in a world of
evil. When we look back through history and review the present we know
clearly that we are on the front line between God and Satan, and that
a sharp division of good and evil is taking place. Very seriously, we
are fighting for our lives.
The fiercest war the world has seen
What is the borderline between life and death, between God's country
and Satan's country? Do the existing Christian and Buddhist
congregations stand guard there, or are we on the front line? What is
the nature of the front line? It is where Satan is always attacking
God's side. I am doing nothing wrong but since I am on the front line
I am constantly being attacked. Because you follow me you are also
Because I am taking responsibility for you, I get all the blame if
even one very young member makes one mistake. Any errors you make are
directly connected to me, and then I receive much accusation from
people. Sometimes communists have posed as members and done evil
things, and then claimed that I made them do it. However, even though
he may be opposed, the person who speaks for God's side can be
recognized by his teaching about human rights, life rights, and love
rights. We are fighting to preserve these in the world.
The communist countries have annihilated millions of people who
opposed their governments. An estimated 70 million people were killed
in Russia during the process of socialization, and 150 million were
killed in Red China. North Korea killed 3 million Koreans, and we read
in the New York Times that 600,000 people were killed in Vietnam. With
life rights being violated on such a scale, what is the use of talking
about human rights?
We have to see this clearly in the free world, and fight to stop it.
This determination makes me the strongest, most staunch
anti-Communist, and the communists are really afraid of me. Can we
allow their activities to continue? We have to realize what the
communists are doing and expose it. The only reason we are doing this
is because God's clear intention is to achieve a world of unity. We
are not trying to do this out of our own personal desires.
Black people are especially susceptible to the communists' influence
and can be persuaded to bitterness and violence. Realizing this, the
communists are working to unite blacks in opposition to the whites,
with the ultimate goal of inciting racial war. Of course both races
will lose if such conflict occurs. In that case only the communists
would benefit and advance further toward their goal of world
A strange phenomenon has come into existence. On one hand, we are
surrounded by hell on earth, yet steadily emerging alongside that hell
is the beginning of heaven on earth. Do you feel fortunate to have
joined this movement, or are you unfortunate? We have to take time to
realize how valuable are the three rights that I have been speaking of
because they involve our very lives. We cannot just speak of their
importance with our mouths; we must have a deep feeling about the
meaning of human rights, life rights and love rights, and be willing
to fight for them. This is a more intense war than any the world has
yet seen, even more fierce than the World Wars. It is of utmost
importance that we secure these rights for humanity. There will be no
such war in the future, nor have we ever witnessed such a war in the
past. Ibis is the only such moment in history when this serious war
will be fought. Can you even superficially understand that you are
called to stand at such a time and place?
Satan is invisible, but we have located Satan and know what he is
doing. Satan's central work is being accomplished through the
communists. We can see the communists advancing their plans year by
year. This is not just our interpretation; anyone who has watched
their actions knows this. This is a war of utmost importance, the most
significant war man has ever fought in the long process of freeing
himself from Satan's fetters. We have to be an effective organization,
so strong that we can win this war over the forces of evil. Are we
Why do I stay in this church?
Sometimes when you are directed to go fund raising you do not really
understand its importance. We have to fund raise in order to restore
all the things of creation that have been lost. Why do we witness? We
witness to revive love in another person. It is our duty to reclaim
from the force of evil all the things that were lost, and we have to
recover the life and love of others.
If the Unification Church is truly the center of God's will then when
those people who do not join go to spirit world, they will be accused
for not joining. But if people join the Church and then drop out
without fulfilling the task given to them, then not only spirit world
but all mankind will accuse them, and even God will accuse them. They
will have absolutely no place to stand. Even if they go to hell, where
people are usually left alone, people there will always accuse them,
yelling, "You were supposed to be up there pursuing God's ideal and
carrying out your mission. Why are you down here?" This will be the
way they will be treated even after they go to hell. This situation is
even worse than existing in the satanic world. In the satanic world
there were at least some people who did not accuse them, but in hell
they simply will have no place to go to escape accusation.
When those who oppose the Unification Church go to spirit world they
will become very envious of those who are newly joining. Once we go to
spirit world we can instantly perceive the truth. We have to clearly
understand what kind of precious position we are in now and what kind
of equally tormenting situation we could find ourselves in later. If I
were to drop out of the Unification Church, Satan would accuse and
mock me, "Why are you here? Why didn't you just carry on?" All hell
would go against me, and even God would oppose me, as well as the rest
of spirit world, crying, "Because of you we are not free! "
The ancestors of a Unification Church member who left will really
resent that person because by working through him they could have
elevated themselves in spirit world. The only way that spirit men can
work on earth is through you, and they will be the first to accuse you
for leaving. I will blame you and the brothers and sisters in the
Unification Church will accuse you. Anyone who drops out really has no
place to go, even within our Unification Church. Even Satan will mock
you, saying, "I fell, not when I was perfect, but when I was in the
perfection stage of the growth stage. But you went beyond me-you fell
from the perfection realm. You are even worse than I." All of this is
the reason why drop-outs from the Unification Church feel so
miserable. This is the very reason why I myself stay in Unification
Church. This is the truth.
My feelings are just like those of any other individual; I would like
to lead my own life, having some enjoyment and free time, like anyone
else in the world, but I have not had one single moment of time to
myself. My mind is always occupied with this immense task; it is just
like sitting on the point of a needle 24 hours a day.
Not long ago some members of my own staff were getting married and I
had not yet given anything to them. When I went to Macy's and bought
six 14 karat gold necklaces, people started commenting that I indulge
in luxurious living. While I was buying the necklaces I could hear the
people behind me saying something against me. Every place I go people
know me. Even beyond that, there is no personal freedom in my life. If
you led this kind of public life and were constantly receiving public
criticism, would you really feel the joy of life?
I understand how difficult this is
If you are reasonably wise then even if someone were to really hurt
you and try to pull you out of the Unification Church you would never
leave. Is that true? This life can become so difficult, yet still we
have to stay and keep on doing this work. Do you stay because you have
no other choice, or do you stay because you are happy? How can you be
happy when you do not have a dime in your pocket? How can you be happy
when the clothing that you are wearing is the only clothing you have?
How can you be happy when you have only one set of underwear and you
have to wash it when you go to bed and put it on again when you get
up? And sometimes when you wake up on a cold morning it isn't even
As you meet the people during the day your heart aches when they do
not listen to you, and you carry a great burden as you witness to
them. If somebody opposes you, you have only yourself and God to
console your aching heart. How can you be happy under these
circumstances? There are people around you who may not be very bright
but who still bring good results in witnessing and fund raising. In
comparing yourself to them you may think ill of yourself, and that too
I think the successful witnessers and fund raisers must have some iron
shield around their faces and their hearts. Sometimes I admire myself
in that way; when I face those who are opposing me I do not feel
anything, but I just continue. I am more sensitive than anyone here,
yet sometimes I cannot afford to be sensitive. It must be the same for
you. You cannot continually respond to all the people who oppose us.
You are fortunate in one thing, however. No matter what hardships you
go through, I am one friend who will understand you completely. Not
only in the past, but in the present I am going through the same life
that you are leading. When your situation becomes difficult then
remind yourself that you are not alone because I am sharing that very
moment with you. When you live that way then I will give you the best
blessing that God can bring. Do not falter because in going the
difficult way you will receive God's deepest love. For this reason I
keep pushing you to go on. I know that it is worthwhile because God is
exactly like that. We must stand at the same place that God is
standing and even now God is going through all these things.
When a sigh escapes your mouth, then instantly follow it by saying,
"Nevertheless, thank You, God. Through this You can give me blessing.
Now I can understand Your present situation. Thank You, for allowing
me to go through the same things that You are facing." If you have a
complaint because of some discomfort then you must replace it with
gratitude. When we take this attitude, Satan cannot accuse us, nor can
he oppose us any longer.
I have a story to tell you about Mother. Right after 5 o'clock pledge
service on Sunday morning Mother drinks a cup of coffee. I told her
that coffee is not good for her and grandmother told about seeing a
man in the hospital whose stomach had ruptured after drinking coffee
for three months. But Mother said, "If I don't drink this my eyes
droop and I'm so drowsy." The children can go back to sleep, but since
she cannot she has to drink coffee to stay awake. I felt pity for her
and said., "Your life is as draining as mine."
I know that you wake up even earlier, maybe 3 or 4 o'clock, and come
all the way up here, and your eyes just won't stay open. Looking down
from the platform I see some really funny faces. I have a real sense
of our common destiny, and I understand how difficult it is. I have
trained myself very purposefully and now I manage to not sleep as many
hours a day. I already know how difficult it is for you. Why are we
working this hard? We cannot eat more than three times a day, so if
you have $3.50 a day then you can live. Then why do you try so hard to
do well in fund raising? Are you working to buy your own houses? To
misunderstanding eyes we are really crazy people.
Do you know the consequences of this life?
Who really understands that we are doing this for the sake of America?
Why don't we just lead peaceful religious lives like the Christians
do? Why do we have to push ourselves like this? The reason is that we
do everything to save even one more life more quickly. Conservatively
speaking, if one percent of the population dies per year that is 40
million people going to the spirit world. Most of them go to hell,
Later they will come to us and say, "Why did you not save me while I
was still on earth? Why did you not tell me about this one day earlier
so I could have heard and accomplished something while I was on earth,
and then come to heaven? This is so real to me that being called names
and going through difficulties on earth is still better than facing
those people who would demand to know why we did not do anything while
they were still alive on the earth. I would Re to reach even one more
life in order to catch that person before he goes to spirit world.
This is why all of us must push ourselves even harder.
I have let everybody know what I am here for, and with all of you I am
working day in and day out, not wasting even a second. Then even
though thousands go to spirit world without knowing God's will, they
cannot blame me. On the contrary, when those people who oppose us here
on earth go to spirit world all the spirit men will come and accuse
them, "Because you opposed the Unification Church on earth I did not
have the opportunity to join! " I know that this is happening.
When I wake up to find that I overslept I feel like a sinner because I
should have been working during that time. Sleeping in the daytime is
virtually unknown to me. This is the kind of life I have been leading.
If I sit down in a chair, within ten minutes I can be snoring. I am
always tired because I do not sleep. Imagine, in ten years 400 million
people will have gone to spirit world. That is twice the population of
America. In ten years that is how many more people will be doomed to
bell. Can you grasp the significance of this?
You are in the same position. When you go to spirit world the spirit
men will blame you for not helping them come to the Divine Principle
while on earth. That is why we cannot help but work the way we do.
Even though the people call us names here, it is still better than
being blamed in spirit world. If you do not witness now, then even
your own ancestors will become your enemies and your own offspring may
turn against you for not being more dedicated.
Once we grasp this clearly, how can we help but push ourselves? No
matter how difficult something may be, can we complain? Knowing this,
all of us are trying to change the evil course of the world, trying to
change this darkness into light. God also is trying to reach each one
of His children in every comer of the world. How truly serious do you
feel, knowing that God is looking down at us?
Without that seriousness we are not in a position to even put on our
pajamas to go to sleep. Imagine all the spirits in the spirit world
looking down at us, knowing that the only way for them to be saved is
through working with those of us on earth. If we are not thinking
about saving people then how critical and frustrated they will feel.
We are very fortunate since we can be liberated while here on earth,
needing only one millionth of the effort that it takes to be elevated
in the spirit world. This is why we have to make impossible efforts
here on earth. Even though we go through intense difficulties here it
is still insignificant because we have a body.
When you really do your best and invest every bit of yourself, even if
you cannot do any more then the spirit world understands and respects
you and cannot accuse you. God knows that too. I will never tell you
to take a day off, even when you have been working hard. You don't
like that fact, do you? A school child has the same problem. Every
time his parents see him, they tell him to study. He does not like it,
but his parents keep on telling him anyway. Later, when the child
grows up and wishes that he has studied harder, he cannot complain to
his parents because they had warned him time and time again.
It will be the same for you when you go to spirit world, and you will
ask me, "Father, why did you not tell me to work harder so I could be
in a higher place?" But you will not be able to say that because every
day I am telling you over and over again to work harder. This is the
reason why I am always pushing you to work harder every time I see
you. I know too well about the consequences of this life, and that is
why I am telling you these things.
If everyone here except one man fails to respond, then in the spirit
world everyone else's blessing will go to that one man for his
efforts. When that one man happens to be me then I can take all of
those blessings to the spirit world and distribute them to the spirit
men who had no opportunity to serve directly on earth. This is the
reason I do not want to be outdone by you. When you work hard then I
will work even harder.
When you are idle you forfeit blessings
When I tell you to do something and you do not do it, then I will do
it myself and receive all the blessing for it. In a way you are losing
blessing every time you do not respond. When a new member comes who
tries more and works harder he will receive greater blessings than
older members who are a long time in the church. God's blessings
automatically flow to those who work harder. This is true wherever you
look in the world; those who work harder get more results. When a
vegetable grows bigger and bigger some of the leaves on the plant are
bound to wither. The same is true in the Unification Church; as our
movement has grown some withering has also been seen. You must work
more than anybody else ahead of you and then we will develop as a
A marathon runner does not stop training just because he has
accumulated previous experience. If you are experienced then you will
practice even more in order to stay ahead of all your competition. For
the same reason you have to work harder to keep in the forefront of
the enthusiastic new members.
When an electrical wire is hooked up it will easily conduct an
electric current, but if the wire is cut it can't function as a
conductor. You are here in the Unification Church because of your
ancestors' merit. In the same way that electricity goes through a wire
that is hooked up, energy from the spirit world will flow through you
when you are connected to your mission. Electricity does not need a
lot of space; only one wire is necessary to start the electricity
flowing. It does not matter how many strands of wire there are as long
as they are hooked up. If the wires are cut in just one place then the
entire system is of no use.
When you are idle you are forfeiting all your blessings. It is the
same as going to school. Perhaps everyone in class is concentrating
very intensely on the lectures, but one student is not studying at
all. When examination time comes, what happens to him? The professors
do not like that kind of person, nor does the school superintendent. I
am the superintendent and your leader is the teacher, and if you are a
diligent student, then everybody likes you. But people do not care for
a student who is not so diligent. What do you choose to do? Are you
just going to take it easy and rest, or are you going to work? Or
maybe you are waiting for me to finish speaking and then you will dash
out and carry on.
In wartime, when bullets are flying and artillery shells are
exploding, the soldier who does not want to die is usually the one who
gets hit first. The brave man who just goes out and fights as he
should without caring about the bullets, surprisingly enough is the
one who lives longer. Even the bullets seem to be discriminating, and
choose who to hit and who not to hit. The bullets will chase after
someone who is trying to escape.
All my life I have been working on the very edge of the realm of
possibility. If I had ever retreated at the many moments when
everything appeared to be impossible I know that long ago I would have
been dead. When I realize that those under me will not be able to make
something work then I think, "I'd better do it myself." When I jump
into a task then somehow a way to accomplish it always opens before
There are some members who are 29 years of age and were almost
included in the blessing. Those people may be depressed about that,
which is understandable. But think about it-there are so many
important things waiting for you in your lives. Consider these things
and forget your depression. You can get blessed anytime in the future.
As you are idle imagine how many people ate passing in front of you on
their way to hell. Have you even stopped to think about that? Every
time you are sitting at the table eating, many people are passing on
their way to hell.
Have you seen the movie "Silver Streak"? It deals with a train going
from California to Chicago and the action develops between the
travelers aboard. At one point the conducted is killed and the train's
accelerator is somehow weighted down as the train moves faster and
faster toward a collision with the Chicago station. Those passengers
who know what a tragedy they are speeding toward have to take a great
risk to prevent it. They cannot just sit there doing nothing. If God
were watching that train carrying His sons and daughters toward death
would He say, "Oh, they deserve it since they didn't pay any attention
to me." Would He just ignore their situation? Suppose there was one
person who knew what was happening and tried very hard to save the
train; even if the train crashed and he went to spirit world, God
would tenderly lift him up to heaven,
This nation is at stake. Like the runaway train America is heading
towards a fatal crash. If somebody becomes aware of the situation and
tries his best to save the nation, then even if he fails, when he goes
to spirit world would God just leave him in hell? God would certainly
lift him up to heaven because of the adventure he dared try. I am
thinking in these terms, and trying to inspire you to become such
people. Can you promise that you will never complain? These
circumstances I have described are not exaggerated. They are very
real, yet even under these circumstances God is constantly thinking of
establishing the ideal family.
What kind of great leap must we make in order to reach the ideal
family? Is it further from Cape Kennedy to the moon, or from the
bottom of hell to the highest heaven? This world is a Cape Kennedy
where we ignite our own rocket of heart with love, and ride straight
up to the world of heaven. This world is our launching pad. Our
destination is the heart of God; pursuing that goal seems really
dream-like, but it is real. Would you like to get on the rocket? Neil
Armstrong was the first astronaut to land on the moon; he was the
father of astronauts with his strong arm. But you are not only
arm-strong, you are strong in every sense, and you must land directly
in the heart of God.
To successfully launch a rocket and land it on the distant target of
the moon your previous training must be very complex. As you listen to
my sermons you are learning how to manipulate the buttons in a very
complicated machine. When you ride on a rocket can you push any
buttons you want and expect to land on the moon? You must be strong in
every sense. You have to learn to live without food for many days, how
to stay alert without much sleep, and train yourself in every
conceivable way-physically, mentally and spiritually. You have to
overcome many personal weaknesses.
Just hearing this inspires you, doesn't it? What if I am telling you a
lie? Then you must determine, "I will teach the truth instead of him."
You have to try harder than I do myself. When you have hope then
everyone else can have hope. Would you be like that? If so, then as I
see you again and again I will see you become increasingly beautiful.
Please go ahead and do that. If all of you become like that, then God
would really be happy to see you. In this world, this kind of training
can only be done with God's help; it is like flying from one end of
the universe to the other.
Are you interested in the spirit world? Don't you think sometimes that
if you could go there once and see it that an immense new universe
would open up to you and completely change your perspective? Do you
sometimes desire to know about the spirit world so intensely that you
wish you could die briefly to see it, and then come back? Do you have
this kind of curiosity? If you have this curiosity then when I say
something about this, seek out what is behind it. Try to see what is
behind my power. Don't you really want to penetrate through the wall
of this physical plane and see the world beyond with your own eyes?
Once you see for yourself you would be in a position to know if what I
say is true or not. Do you think you already know about spirit world?
Actually you do not yet know for sure. You do not completely
understand what you have been hearing.
With love you can go anywhere and experience anything
You have only heard about die love of God. Have you ever truly
experienced the love of God personally? None of you really have. When
you slaughter a chicken and pull the tendon in its leg, then the
chicken's foot will draw together. If you pull the coat of God's love
and just keep pulling it, the entire universe will eventually come
into the bosom of God. Once you are intoxicated in the love of God
then your eyes, your nose, your ears, mouth and hands will become
focused on one point. When you are focused on one dot your entire
being becomes completely one.
When you are feeling good, then your entire self will say, "Good!" in
unison. In the same way, when you are completely one with God, you
will tag along wherever He goes. You just cannot stand to be separated
when you are in the midst of that love. Then all the universe rejoices
with you in your happiness. When you really feel good then the entire
universe will answer your feelings, like an echo in the mountains.
When you say, "Ah," then all the universe will echo, "Ah." We have a
saying in Korea that when one is really happy, "His eyes are just
tumbling over." It means that his eyes are not just tumbling over, but
almost popping out of his head. This is actually something that is
Men are created to receive that kind of love from God. The couple that
is united in that kind of love will be inseparable, and even as they
are taking a breath, the entire universe will join them in that
breath. Wouldn't you want to be near them and experience that? The
fastest speed is spirit world is the speed of love, which is even
faster than that of electricity and light. When you are deeply anxious
to see God and you say, "Father," God is already beside you. The
spirit world is governed with love. Although you do not know what love
is you still like that idea, don't you?
There is nowhere that love cannot go and nothing that it cannot go
through. With a special lookingglass of love you can see through
anything into the real basis of existence. You can even see God's
image, for He is not without image, and so you can experience love
with God who has a form. In Paul's words, "You are Christ's, and
Christ is God's." That is only a small expression. Your experience can
be a million times greater.
Each one of us originally possesses the value that makes us eligible
to experience this. That is the way we were originally created. It is
almost too good to be true, isn't it? Even if it is not true, it is
the best untruth there is. If this is true, what then? Would you
willingly bet your life on it? We must go on with this to nothing less
than the whole world. Actually Mother would not be happy to hear this,
but strictly speaking, I do not have any real affection for this
physical world. However, because I have things to accomplish here, I
am doing everything I can while on earth. Sometimes I think about life
in the spirit world, even in the night. Even though you may have a
sleepless night, somehow you never feel tired when you are absorbed in
that spiritual environment.
True love is more than lightning and thunder
I know very clearly that there is nothing which can control love. If
there were a man and a woman who could both extend themselves fully in
love, wouldn't their marriage be really fantastic? As soon as you see
a bright flash of lightning you know you will hear a great roll of
thunder. Have you ever stopped to think about why God created such
bright lightning, to be followed by a great roll of thunder? Now
imagine God's two extremes, plus and minus. What if they were to short
circuit; do you think it would make a bigger explosion than the
lightning and thunder? You cannot conceive how much bigger. Similarly,
in God's love a man has plus voltage and a woman has minus voltage.
When a true man and woman unite in love then the entire universe will
see the lightning and be shaken by the thunder. That catches God's
attention, and He is surprised Himself, just to experience that. Then
God is drawn right into the midst of the relationship.
That is the greatest rhythm in all the universe. Man and woman were
originally created for this. However, since the fall they do not have
this voltage of love, and when a man and woman love each other nothing
happens; no powerful current of love flows between them. If a man and
woman were to have the voltage of true love then their marriage would
be ideal, almost like a fairy tale. The entire universe is eagerly
waiting for this kind of love to brighten every comer of the cosmos.
That day is finally here.
Have you prepared yourself to become that kind of woman? A strong
current will be connected to the man and woman, and when even a small
current starts to flow then the earth and the universe will tremble in
resonance. Have you ever imagined such a moment? Human beings the
world over have never experienced these things. How false their world
is! This power of love is the ideal that God had in mind from the
beginning when He created man. Would you all like to fulfill the ideal
of this morning's talk, the ideal family from the viewpoint of God's
I want every inch of every one of you to become refined like pure
gold. Is pure gold different on the inside and the outside? A person
reflecting this purity does not have any fallen thought. To become one
with God one needs to be pure; can you be false gold and achieve that?
Jesus told his disciples that everyone must become perfect as their
father in heaven is perfect.
If you are pure gold then it is so easy for you and God to melt and
become one. Combining two different metals may be difficult, but pure
gold can easily blend with pure gold. When you compare yourself to me,
are we made of the same substance? Think about that; you have to
cleanse and cleanse and cleanse your hearts and minds every day for a
long time to become pure gold so that you can become one with God.
We must also become one with the world. The physical world and spirit
world are divided up into many classes. All the walls that separate
people must be done away with so that they can become one. After each
of you do away with all these walls you can become completely one with
the world, but for this to be possible you must become pure gold.
Fallen man is gold that is contaminated by foreign metals. We have to
go to the refinery to separate those out and replace them with gold.
In this refining process we should not be washed away but withstand
the test of all the worldly currents passing through us.
Each one of you have to become a ray of hope for both heaven and hell,
so that even God can say that you have brought hope. Have you become
convinced that after you train and perfect yourselves, that you will
become people of pure gold, and one with God? When you and your
spouses are blessed then your love will be just as strong and dynamic
as I have been describing.
When you really enter into the depth of love, then even without
looking with your eyes you begin to see everything. In the same way,
even without listening with your ears you hear everything, and you
even begin to taste everything just as you sit. In that depth of love
nothing will attract your attention except love. The universe will be
full of nothing but love and you will be the perfection of everything,
and the owner of everything. Beyond that there is nothing else you can
Love has that quality because God has that quality; this is why
mankind has not given up hope of having love, even though they have
been struggling up to this point. When I begin to speak about the
depths of love, I completely lose track of time; and many times I
continue on for four or five hours. That is enough time to fly from
New York clear to the West Coast. Is that five hour flight boring or
not? Do you have an aching back, or are you all excited? Imagine how
exciting it would be if I could express all of this in English! Even
if someone were to encourage you to doze off, you could never go to
sleep, and your eyes would open wider and wider.
If you were really intense and grave, then you could hear things
directly from the spirit world, and spiritually see things right from
where you are sitting. We could all become like that. One example of
spiritual awareness is coming into Belvedere. Even though there may be
people around when you walk into Belvedere and look around, it feels
like nobody is here. When I am here then people want to come, but when
I am not here Belvedere feels empty, even though there are people
here. The Washington family told me that when I am there the center
seems filled with people, but once I leave then all of a sudden the
house feels empty, even though all the people still remain. Do you
feel that sometimes? What if I did not exist? It would be as if all
the world were here but were empty. Why do you feel like that?
Only love can fill the universe
When love is present then love fills every comer of the universe. If
God did not exist, then the world would be empty because God's love
would be absent. But if God were here and His love filled the earth
then you would feel that the world was full. If He dwells within us
then we are filled with everything. Even in a family, when the husband
comes home and his children run to greet him the first thing he says
to the children is, "Where is your mother?" The wife is the same way.
If she goes out shopping somewhere, when she comes back home many
children are there, but the first thing she asks is, "Where is Daddy?"
Why? It is because of a longing for love, a feeling of "Where is my
love?" What can fill this vast universe? Not even air can fill it. We
can only fill it with love.
The man with love can go anywhere and still be happy and contented.
Without love a man can go anywhere and still feel empty. In spirit
world this is even more real. The man who is filled with God's love
feels satisfied and whole everywhere he goes. It is understandable. If
we experience God's love and remain stable in that, then we become the
source of the spark of love and can be called sons of thunder and
Would you want to give birth to sons and daughters once you were
blessed in marriage? When a man and wife love each other like that,
then their sons and daughters dwell in that harmony, rejoicing in each
other, and caring for each other. That love would interact within the
family, among the father and mother and all the children. An arc light
is extremely bright, like a spotlight. The current does not pass
through a filament but creates an arc of silver light. The energy or
current of abundant love creates that kind of brilliant silvery light.
God wants to live within that kind of bright home, within the warmth
of such love. Wouldn't you like to create that kind of family in the
God is alive and like us, isn't He? He must also want to live like all
men; He never had the desire to live all by Himself but to live among
His sons and daughters in the midst of abundant love. What kind of
love would He like to live in? In electrical terms, would He like to
live in the light of electric bulbs like these, or would He like to
live in the brilliance of an arc light? God would like to live in the
arc light of love. If you would like to experience that kind of love
in the future, the first thing you have to do is prepare yourselves
for marriage. Unless you are pure like gold then when you come under
an intense arc light you just could not stand the heat. If you are
made up of any other inferior material you would just bum away.
Raise your hands if you have taken drugs and lived a hippie life.
Almost all. Some scholar took a poll and found that 75% of our members
are exhippies. We have to show people a brand-new hippie, a "King
Hippie," who will originate new fashions and concepts of life. That is
the kind of hippie that God likes, while Satan likes the ordinary
hippies. Here for the first time we have heard about such essential
things as life rights and love rights. Here we have also created a new
person, called a "kingpie," who also has the habit of eating kimchee.
Americans will just shake their heads in amazement.
You can become men and women of pure gold with the love of God in your
hearts and form ideal families. This is the ideal family I have
described this morning. Just imagine that perfect man and wife, the
original ideal of creation. We have just imagined that this morning;
we have not become that ideal as yet. Has God connected His own source
of power to you yet? Have you prepared yourselves for blessing in such
a way that when the two wires touch then a huge spark will jump
between them? How may karats of gold are you, 24, 14, or 8 karats?
Would you like to stay where you are, or would you like to purify
yourselves to become 24 karat gold?
You need a passport from Satan and a visa from heaven
What kind of furnace can purify you? You guessed very quickly! All the
iron, copper and other foreign metals will be processed out of you in
hell, and in their place God will fill you with gold. Therefore, you
are actually going into hell in God's name, not in Satan's name. There
is no other way to refine yourselves. All the corruption which we
inherited from the satanic world will be drawn away and only our gold
will remain. After that God can fill with gold the holes left by the
After that, even if you want to stay in hell, Satan will say, "This is
not the place for you. You have to leave." When you really become like
that Satan will write you a passport, "This man is completely free
from me; he is qualified to stay in heaven." No one but Satan can
write you a passport to leave hell. Has Satan issued you a passport
saying that you can go? Your visa to heaven is written by an angel
from God and you can go to the original place that God intended for
man, being a true man for the first time. You are qualified to proceed
to heaven after you win over Satan and take dominion over the angels.
This is the way of restoration: we must do something that even Satan
and the angels cannot do. After we do that we are given passports and
visas and then we can proceed into heaven.
This is similar to the old world, where even though you have a
passport and are free to leave, if the place to which you are going
does not release a visa then you cannot enter. When you have both then
you have the qualification for blessing. Those who have both your
passport and visa, raise your hand. Nobody? But on the other hand,
those who want to be blessed, raise your hand. All of you. The angel
also wanted to be blessed even before he was qualified, and then he
and Eve both fell. You also want to be blessed but it is not the time
yet. Do you understand that you are situated at that very same point?
Many of you were stimulated by the 74 Couple Blessing of a few days
ago. You watched that and thought, "I want to be blessed too." Those
of you who were not affected by that and didn't even think of
yourselves getting blessed do not even qualify to receive the blessing
next time. Raise your hand if you compared your position to that of
the marrying couples, thinking, "I want to become blessed also, but
I'm not prepared so I'd better become prepared! You are like good
Businessmen you may be, but you must become pure gold. If you are
pure, then no matter how strongly the satanic world opposes you, can
your gold be altered into copper? What if you are twisted
around-suppose a heavy roller rolled you out-are you still gold? If
somebody did everything to provoke you, spitting at you and calling
you names, would you still not change? Do you sometimes wonder why you
have to put up with this, and feel like jumping in a car and killing
Instead maybe you wish your opponent would be killed by an automobile!
To love your enemy is a most wonderful thing. In that case, you are
still pure gold even while you are going through hell. We have to
realize our objective as Unification Church members; no matter what
hardships we go through, we must continue to purify ourselves and
become pure gold. Going through hell is the only way for us to become
pure gold. Through test after test we must drain ourselves of all
fallen nature and be filled with God's gold. We cannot achieve this by
going into a palace or by being comfortable. Before Americans finally
understand us the whole nation will go against you, melting you down
as they call you names and mock you. But once they realize that you
are actually made of pure gold they will gradually change their
attitudes and start respecting you.
Whenever pure gold goes through the furnace, its weight stays the same
because no foreign metals are drawn off. You will reach heaven when
you have become victors over all the satanic world, going through all
of hell and winning over it. I have been going through the individual
and family course, and now am striving to accomplish on the world
level. I have been persecuted and have suffered, but my liberation is
near. The day will come when all the people who oppose me will sign a
statement testifying that I am a royal worker for the heavenly world.
They have started making drafts already. Even though such a man may
have opposed me, once he carefully examines what we are doing and
realizes he was wrong, he will have no further reason to oppose me.
Once he recognizes the goodness of what we are doing he will become a
member, and try to become many times better than the rest of you.
Once you prepare yourself, what kind of spouse are you going to get?
Is he or she going to hold a college degree or be very handsome or
beautiful, or be refined and high-standard in every way? Would you
like to marry that kind of spouse, or would you like to marry someone
who is deformed and misfigured and of a different race than you had
expected? Would you be willing to many that kind of spouse? After you
become pure gold, you will not care so much about external appearances
or college degrees, but more about how pure your spouse is. Would you
rather marry a very good-looking spouse who is not pure gold, or would
you rather be with an ugly person who is 24 karat gold?
What is so different in the Unification Church? Our philosophy of
marriage and value of love are what is completely different. We are
not contented with some small love, but are always reaching for what
we were originally designed to be; we want to occupy this great big
love of God with our own pure gold love. In this country the custom is
a little different, but in the Orient women nurse their children. When
God looks down on a woman of pure gold nursing her child he is filled
with heart-felt laughter and happiness at seeing such a beautiful
Can you say with confidence, "My husband is the best in the whole
world because of his inner nature, and therefore my child is the one
whom God can love the most. I too, am completely one with God and His
love." How can you become like that? God will look at you with His
eyes filled with love if you can be like that. When you are filled
inside with love then nothing looks ugly or hateful. If you are truly
in love, then you can handle the soiled sheets or clothes of your
spouse and still not feel that they are dirty. When you have absolute
love for another then even the dirtiest thing about them actually
appears clean. Some married people have experienced this to a certain
If God's love is dwelling within a person, then no matter how ugly he
may be by worldly standards you will love him; external appearance is
just not noticed among those who love God. There is a saying that
beauty is only skin-deep. Those who occupy God's love have unlimited
beauty. I want every one of you to become part of an ideal family
which resides in the heart of God.
This morning we have spent much time already but actually I have not
been able to complete my talk. Next time I will continue on this
topic. Maybe next Sunday we will assemble here at 3 o'clock in the
morning. Is that all right? I expect that none will be absent.
