When we talk about "parents" we usually mean the natural
parents who gave us physical birth, but here we mean the True Parents
who will give us eternal life. You all know that the dispensation of
restoration was necessitated by the fall of man. Without the fall,
there would be no need for salvation. The people who fell were not just
figures in history, but the first ancestors of all mankind, and that
means that God has never had the opportunity to fulfill His ideal in all
of human history. Consequently, history has been proceeding on the side
of sin and the ideal of true parents and the family of man has never
been seen. Neither has man's ideal of the ideal person and family and
ideology been seen here on earth.
Because of the fall of the first ancestors, history has been running
on the side of despair, but even after the fall of man God could not
abandon man. Originally God created man as His children, and since God
was the Father of mankind, even after the fall He could not abandon man.
For God's part, if Adam and Eve had just vanished, He could have
recreated them. If they had drowned and vanished, God could have
recreated them, but that was not the case. They were still alive
physically, but their original life was gone.
What was that fall? If what had been lost by the fall could be
replaced, we could easily get spare parts. If God could replace what
went wrong, there should be no problem. However, the fall was not a
material loss but a loss of heart, a loss of the core truth of creation.
Genuine, pure love was entangled in the action of the fall. That love
by which God wanted to have Adam and Eve blossom in the ideal was the
hinge upon which the perfection of everything in creation would turn.
God had dreamed of the blossoming of the beautiful flowers of love in
Adam and Eve, and their fragrance would fill the earth. That was how
God wanted to receive His joy and glory. But by the fall that love was
God intended to have total unity in love between Himself and man so
that there would be no boundaries between them and they could rejoice
and live eternally together. That was the life God had planned for man.
Therefore, God was waiting for Adam and ·Eve to bear the fruit of
love. A fruit is actually the seed itself; the core and purpose of a
fruit is to bear the seed inside. Inside every seed are two identical
pieces joined together, and the life force is contained in the embryo of
the seed. That embryo contains the essence of the parents' love, of
God's love, and the life force. Everything is contained in that life
package. The two pieces surrounding that embryo are needed to allow the
seed to germinate and to give nourishment so life can spring forth.
Fallen man still has the shape of a seed, but the embryo has become
misshapen so that there is no life force and no love source there.
Fallen parents gave birth to the fallen generation and many children
have been born on earth. Their shape is the same as the original, but
the embryo, the life essence, is missing. If man is born with the
embryo still intact and pure then when life blossoms and grows, the
embryo can only grow in the direction of God, just as a compass needle
always points to due north. No one has to teach an original man without
sin about God because instinctively he knows the direction of life and
of God. There is no other direction for that particular life to take.
When you were growing in your mother's womb, did you worry about
whether there would be air for you to breathe, or whether there was
enough sunlight? In the same way, when original man was born on earth
he had no worry about whether there was God or what direction life
should take. Automatically he grew in the right direction. The life
source of the embryo was the package of the true love of God it
contained, and the life developing from that embryo automatically became
a subject of love. But by the fall the essential embryo was destroyed.
After the fall man became a seed without an embryo, so even though
he was born he was like a ship without a compass, not knowing where to
go or how to live. This describes the fallen generation. Even the
lesser creations like the birds can detect the coming of the seasons
without a calendar, and they naturally fly south in winter and north in
spring in a most orderly manner. If man was to be God's supreme
creation, how much more sensitive should man be in perfection? God gave
even the birds some special sensitivity to know the seasons so they
could order their lives without deviation. The end result of the fall
was that man collapsed in confusion and despair over love and ideology.
Everyone is looking for true love and the ideal but they don't know
what direction to take so they try anything, even seeking answers
through drugs and free sex. People are confused about ideology and
think that maybe communism or socialism would be good, but no matter how
much they search, without having true love as the focal point of their
lives they will not find what they seek. True love means both human
love and the pure love of God together. Your parents had human love,
but the love of God was not at the center of it. For that reason it
lacked the element of true love. Here we are talking about the true
love of parents plus the love of God.
Restoration means that we are going to establish an order for true
love and ideology of the ideal. This order and standard, or discipline,
must be restored. The ideal should be fulfilled in true love. The
communist ideology is based on materialism, not upon God at all.
Democracy is an ideology centering upon man, not God. What was the
original ideology that God designed? True lovism. True love will
provide the solution for everything, but where can true lovism begin?
It can only begin in an environment without the fall. The fall brought
man down from true lovism and the fallen world is the world without true
love. You may think the ideal world must include three meals a day and
journeys around the world, but without true love that will never be the
true ideal for man.
Why do we need true lovism? True love can make you a seed with an
embryo of life. In order to become a true heavenly seed, the embryo
must contain life from God. When you are restored to be that kind of
seed, all you have to do is plant the seed and it will blossom and
multiply many other true seeds. Each seed contains genes which
determine what it will become. A pine seed cannot become a poplar tree.
When you plant a pine seed, don't expect corn to grow from it.
What ideal are you trying to obtain? What is true lovism all about?
True lovism can be called ideal humanism, or Godism. Many people in the
world today talk about humanitarianism, but that is still fallen and
without God. When you add the word ideal, that means God has been put
back into it.
Why are you gathered together here in the Unification Church? When
we stand on the side of men and talk about this ideology we can call it
"ideal, true humanism." When seen from God's point of view, it becomes
true Godism. You might ask if I mean there are a true and a false God,
and the answer is yes. The false God is the one who has had to deal
with fallen man; He is a pitiful, miserable God, not the God of the
ideal world. Is the fallen generation happy ? Do you think the God of
the fallen generation is happy? God has been miserable, a parent who
has to deal with dead children. He has been the most unhappy parent you
All the Christians in history have made many requests tor God's
help. Were they wealthy, happy children, or poor and miserable? They
were miserable and that's why they asked God to give them food and
shelter. That kind of thinking was not God's main concern and He did
not pay much attention. But when God hears requests for His true love
then His ears open. No one in history prayed that kind of prayer,
however. Many church leaders have asked God to help them defeat the
heretics and make their church prosper, but no one prayed for true love
with such a longing heart that they were willing even to sacrifice their
church to fulfill it.
God really wanted to hear that kind of prayer, but for 6,000 years
He has been hearing material requests and pleas for protection instead.
So many ridiculous prayers are prayed that if I were God I would plug my
ears. No one understood that God was heartbroken.
We must know where true love comes from. It must come from a true
father and true mother. That's the logical conclusion. If God is
working for restoration then logically He is looking for someone who can
bring a channel of true love to earth, which is indeed the concept of
true father and true mother. Then where will they come from? If God
had every freedom to remake them, I am sure He would quickly do so. But
that is one thing God cannot do-He cannot abolish His first son Adam
because, after all, Adam was created as an eternal being.
Two parents may have 100 sons and daughters, but if they lose their
first child then they are miserable even though they still have 99
others. It has been God's destiny to restore the first son back to the
original state. That's how the word "restoration" came into
being. When God sees the world filled with men and women, He sees them
as nothing more fallen Adam and Eve. God had to pick and refine people
from all those on earth in order to have the true Adam emerge. You are
fake Adams and fake Eves. Do you feel good? You say with fervor that
you don't want to be false Adam and Eve, so now go ahead and deny
yourselves to that same degree. Do you really feel your old self is no
Most people think they are all right but that everyone else is no
good. You may be in the shape of Adam and Eve but you don't have true
life. What you need is true love and true life. When they can be
grafted into you, you shall be restored to become true Adam and true
Eve. You should say A-man, not A-men. Then you sisters
should say A-woman. When you mean more than one, then it's fine to
say A-men, but when you talk about yourself, it should be
A-man and A-woman.
The very person who can be the first A-man is no one else but
the Messiah. That is his role. In Japanese pronunciation,
"messiah" means the house where rice is cooked. In Korean
pronunciation, "messiah" means "what time is it
now?" For you, the Messiah is nothing more than A-man.
History has continued on and on, but the real A-man has never been
Even without knowing the whole truth, the churches talk about the
Messiah and his return and the end of the world. Everyone thinks the
Messiah must come on the clouds of heaven, having a wonderful time, and
expect him to lift the Christians up in the air. They also say only
Christians shall survive at the end of the world, that billions of
others shall be judged by fire and brimstone and burned up. There are
many conscientious people who scorn that doctrine and criticize the
Christians for being selfish. They can't accept such a God who would be
so cruel as to allow that to happen. Listening to the two arguments,
which side do you think God would take?
How can you prove whether God will side with the
non-Christians? We can prove it with the word of God. We can
answer that question through the Scripture, John 3:16. "For God so
loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whoever
believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." God did
not say that He gave His son only for the Christians. God loved the
world; how could He destroy the world then? Was He talking about the
restored Kingdom of Heaven, or about the fallen world where His
generations were suffering?
Christians have thought they had a monopoly on God and no one else
was entitled to salvation. When I repeat that God loves the world and
that He will not destroy it but save and restore it, they call me a
heretic. They place great significance in their denomination, and when
I say such barriers must be demolished and the churches must sacrifice
themselves to save the world, they again call me a heretic. If God
would ever call me a heretic and say that these Christians are right, I
tell you we would lose nothing because there would be no God in heaven.
Religion must be logical and common-sense. Do you need
A-man? What is the essence of the number one man? Is he the one
who is superior in the boxing ring? What is his qualification? Because
he is such a super-person he probably wouldn't need food or need to
use the bathroom, and in order to climb to the second floor he wouldn't
need stairs, right? If you think you need him, would you want him close
or distant from you?
If God really wants to save this fallen world He will make the
A-man very attractive to the fallen generation. What kind of
person would you visualize as A-man? You white people would like
him to be white and you black people would like him to be black, right?
He should be a mixture of white, black and yellow, shouldn't he? The
important thing is not the color of his skin, but his content. True
love and true ideal must be the content of that A-man.
Human history has been proceeding with one main purpose of
recreating one A-man, using all historical men as material to reach
the final pinnacle. God has been molding a model, making it more and
more perfect, bit by bit, progressing toward that perfect A-man.
When we look at the history of God, we can see in the Old Testament era
that God was molding that man into a servant. There are four major
steps for men to take-to be a servant, adopted son, a true son, and
father. In the Old Testament era God was striving to make a true
servant. For 2,000 years God used all the rabbis and teachers to make
one true servant, who was John the Baptist.
God's feeling was that John the Baptist was the true servant, and if
he fulfilled his responsibility God would elevate him to the level of
adopted son, to whom He would send His true son. But the covenant was
that this adopted son must give his absolute loyalty to this true son
when he came. If this adopted son was willing to give even his life to
this true son, then he could become an adopted A-man.
Life-giving loyalty was needed. John the Baptist was to love Jesus
who was God's masterpiece, truly the A-man. God labored for 4,000
years to bring him to earth, so in God's sight Jesus was His most
precious treasure. From God's point of view it was most important that
John the Baptist give his life to Jesus.
God knows you men need true love and a true ideal. In order to
secure that ideal your usual horizontal love affairs would not do, and
neither would your way of loving your parents or brothers and sisters.
That's why God required the strictest standard that you should love the
A-man most of all. When Jesus came he declared, "He who gives
his life for my sake will find it. He who would save his own life will
lose it." Do you think that standard has been bent since Jesus'
time, or is it the same now? Is it true to say today that we who would
lose our lives for God's sake will find them? Is that your commitment?
Jesus declared that the person who loved his own wife or parents or
children more than he loved Jesus was not worthy of Jesus. Do you think
there is truth in that? Did it mean that once people accepted Jesus as
the Messiah they were free to get married on their own? What about you
then, are you the same or different? What happened to John the Baptist
2,000 years ago; did he love Jesus more than his own family and nation?
Did he pass or fail God's test? Should you be better than John the
Baptist or not? In order for you to be better than John the Baptist I
am chasing you out to the wilderness. If I am chasing you out to raise
money in the wilderness, then if the Messiah is rejected by the nation
you can welcome him into the wilderness and build the Kingdom there.
John the Baptist had gathered many disciples of his own, so when he
knew that Jesus had come as the Messiah he should have brought his own
disciples as his treasure and given them to Jesus. If Jesus returned
them to John then John should have insisted. But did that happen?
Wouldn't it be smarter to keep what is valuable to you in your pocket
and give what is unimportant to Jesus?
The best way to be linked to true love is to give your life for it.
When your life is connected to it then true love will flow into you. If
your head is cut off then Jesus will replace it for you, but when you
look closely you will see it is Jesus' head you have now. By giving
your life you can become Jesus. Then God will see that you look like
His son, and will welcome you with the same love. If Jesus is a pine
tree then you will look like a pine tree, not like anything else that
you were before. When two people have an ideology and concept of love
that are identical then they are identical.
You need A-man don't you? Now at the end of their prayer some
people will say A-man and others will say Woman.
If John and Jesus had become completely one, then John would have
become an adopted son and all the Jews behind him would have followed
Jesus. Then like a locomotive Jesus could have taken them all straight
into the Kingdom of Heaven. That was God's plan, but the reality was
very sad. John failed to believe in Jesus; the rabbis and priests and
scribes and all the people failed to believe in Jesus. Finally they
plotted together with the Romans to nail Jesus on the cross. Do you
think the crucifixion was God's will? Do you think He put the true man
here on earth again only to be killed on a cross? God's work was
restoration and recreation, so He wanted to create the A-man and
A- woman first, then A-children and finally A-kingdom of
God. But did Jesus live or die? Was the will of God fulfilled fully in
his time? No, the Second Coming had to be announced.
Through the history in the Bible we see that God has been working
steadily according to one principle from the beginning to the end, so
mankind is destined to welcome A-man one more time. Do you think
Jesus Christ will return, or that someone else has to come? For 2,000
years after Jesus God has been using all men as material, trying to mold
one more final model of a true man here on earth. Therefore, it is most
logical that the Messiah must return through the country and people who
have received the most tribulation and shed the most tears.
That A-man must come as a physical person here on earth, a true
man who will recreate true woman, because that was the order of the
original creation. lt is not God who will make the true woman, but the
true man. Why? In the Bible we read that God made Adam, but then only
pulled a rib from Adam to make the woman. That actually means that God
made woman by using Adam as a model. If God comes to take American
women and push them out into tribulation and suffering, will they submit
to it? Are American women likely to reject this and crumble, or are
they more likely to accept it wholeheartedly? You may think they will
accept, but God doesn't think so.
God sees that becoming A-woman is not an easy task because she
must go through a tremendous ordeal. That woman must have absolute
blind loyalty to A-man, so God looked for the country with that
kind of virtue. Can that virtue be found more easily in the West or
East? When God takes that woman to have her made into A-woman
there should be no flaw.
God instructed A-man to give A-woman a hard time because
in the garden of Eden it was Eve who did not obey God or believe the
commandment and whose cunning way united with Satan and betrayed Adam.
Therefore, in restoration woman must be given a hard time and still
unite with whatever God's will is. Then A-woman is made. Do you
think that is an easy thing to do? When that A-man recreates
A-woman and they have children and make a home, then they would
become the first True Parents in history. Would you like to meet the
True Parents? Why? What would you gain?
The Unification Church is working for the salvation of the family,
the building block of the Kingdom of Heaven. So far Christians have
thought that salvation was only for individuals, and that each person
had to win his own cubbyhole in heaven. If the Unification Church is
the place where you meet the Parents then you have to pay for all the
historical sins and clean away the back debt of mankind. Only then do
you become a perfect John the Baptist, and then you must unite with the
true A-man. Even when the True Parents are finally installed, they
cannot instantly make you into a true son and daughter. You have to go
through several stages; first you become a servant, then adopted son,
then true children. When you meet the True Parents, what would they do?
Chase you out to the world, letting you become a true John the Baptist.
That person cannot go out to the wilderness with skepticism,
grumbling, "What kind of True Parents are they? The Divine
Principle is very good, but why are they making me suffer?" But I
want you to know that is the beginning point. When you meet True
Parents you go back to that position and start out all over again,
returning step by step, going through every level. First you become a
servant, then an adopted son. The relationship between an adopted son
and his stepparents is normally a difficult one and the son has much
difficulty. But through the Principle you know the failure of men in
the past, so you are willing to go this road nevertheless, without
complaining, desiring to become true sons and daughters. Only those
people can pass. The words Jesus spoke 2,000 years ago form the very
credo you Moonies follow today.
Why do we need True Parents? In order to restore and have the true
ideal and love, True Parents are essential. Once you reach that ideal,
no matter how strongly people insist there is no God, it won't bother
you because you know by experience there is a God. Do you have such
antennae? We have special antennae so we can communicate the special
love which others cannot detect. We can experience the true happiness
others cannot taste. Do you only want to come for celebrations to cut
the cake, but not go out to labor and sweat? Many people, even among
you here, can't figure out why you should go through suffering when you
could easily have your own families and your own lives.
I was smart; I didn't willingly suffer without any reason. But
there was no other choice. It was simply my destiny, the law of cause
and effect in action. Because mankind is fallen, without going through
that route there is no way we can taste true joy and true love. I am
quite smart, and if there were some other way I would have found it. I
am talking about finding the universal love which can be welcomed
anywhere, even in the dungeons of hell. Hell will be melted into heaven
by this love, but there is no easy way to get it. Even though there is
a great deal of opposition, we have a great power of love which will
submerge all the opposition in the water of love. That's the only way
we can finally overcome it.
Then we bring the water of love to hell to wash it out. Do you live
in the Old Testament era now? the New Testament era? In the Old
Testament era the servant is carrying the load of God's dispensation,
while in the New Testament era the adopted son is carrying the
dispensation. In the Completed Testament era the sons and daughters are
undertaking the burden of the dispensation. Presently there are three
levels of life in society; the non-believers belong to the Old
Testament era, even now in the servant position the Christian world is
living in the adopted son's era, and the Unification Church is living in
the era of true children.
The responsibility of true children is the supreme one because they
are going to inherit the responsibility of the parents. We are going to
stop the crumbling of the world and bring it back to God. God has three
major headaches here on earth. He must take care of communism; He must
awaken and revitalize the Christian churches, and finally He must stop
the degradation and immorality of the young people of the world. Who is
doing it? One master satan is influencing all of this behind the
scenes- communism. The communists are working to weaken Christianity
because they know that religion is the greatest threat to them. In
order to weaken the free world they are corrupting the young people.
The focal point for the destruction of the tree world, the churches
and the young people is the family, so once the communists destroy the
family system, they will win everything. In one family in America you
can find all kinds of religions and beliefs; because there is a chaos in
ideology there is no unity and so love is going in all different
directions. When the Messiah comes, however, and brings the central
ideology, it will form the backbone of the individual, family and
society, and then no power at all can destroy them. Even the communist
power will not change them. All of Christian doctrine not be able to
remove that ideology and free sex and carnal desire will not change it.
Once equipped with this Godism, no one will be shaken, regardless of
what enticements are offered. Will women be enticed by handsome men
then? Didn't you do it to Adam in the garden of Eden? The weakest
creature is woman and she is more susceptible to the degradation of sin.
Suppose you think you are beautiful and everyone envies you, but then
all of a sudden I match you with an ugly man as a husband. Would you be
proud of introducing him as your husband? Even though externally he is
not handsome, you can be proud of him if he has the central ideology of
God and if he possesses true love. Then he is far better than any movie
star in the world. Your destination is not the handsome face of your
husband; it is the ideology and spirit and true love he has.
An electric bulb has a filament inside, and the more crooked it is
the brighter light it will give; a straight filament will give only weak
light. A man who is sturdy in the love of God may look unattractive,
but once the switch is on he will light up the entire world. Light is
the important thing. When you become a divine spirit you no longer see
the physical body; in spirit world the intensity of brightness of a
person's spirit will determine his attractiveness, not his external
appearance. The men who are pursuing God's ideology and trying to
obtain the true love of God are the noble men.
Now it's the men's turn. They may think 1 am not qualified to say
anything to them since I have such a beautiful wife, but I never prayed
to have a beautiful wife. I said it didn't matter what shape my wife
was, even if she was so big I couldn't reach around her. If God told me
to love her and mold her into A-woman, I was ready to accept her
and do my best. If that had happened would you have been pleased? Then
the men would have thought they could be blessed to anyone except a
woman of Mother's shape. That's why, even though I didn't care what
kind of wife I had, God cared very much. He wanted His children to
think that the ideal woman was Mother, and any sister who looked like
her would be the best wife. That's why God gave you such a beautiful
Mother, not for me but for you.
Why are the True Parents coming to mankind? Is their goal only one
nation? What was the goal in the garden of Eden in the beginning? The
family. The basic unit of happiness is not the nation or world, but the
family. The ideal family is more important than the ideal world. In
this one unit of the family you must fulfill the ideal man and ideal
love. The father's position is the ideal man's position and the
mother's position is the ideal woman's position. The man's position is
the ideal son's position, and woman's position is the ideal daughter's
position. Our goal altogether is the ideal, Perfected family.
The ideal would never be ideal with arrogance, and in order to
eliminate arrogance a true love must be found which can melt everything
together. Then nothing will be separated. If someone pulls the son,
the entire family will go too because everyone is welded together. Is
your family like that? Right now the family is mixed up and separated.
You should be able to say that your father is greater than the President
of the United States. A parent must be able to say that even though his
son is crippled, he is better than any Harvard Ph.D. Why? Because true
love connects them. That is first and foremost.
the heavenly four positions the father, mother and children are
welded by true love into one unit so that their positions are
interchangeable, moving around and around. Then who is the center of
this circular movement? God. There is a distinct rule in the true
family that God is center, no matter what. Everyone goes toward God and
nothing else comes first. Would a true father want his son to love him
first before God, even for a short time? Would he be a true parent
then? No, everyone would encourage each other to love God most.
Why couldn't husband and wife feel they were the closest, even just
for a while? No matter how often father and mother may be living in
different places on earth, if they are united in God they cannot be
apart in spirit world. Though they are apart on earth, if they are
united in the love of God then they will reach the same destination in
God. Then they will become intensely close as husband and wife because
God's love will be manifested in their own love. As much as they love
God, God permits them to love each other in spirit world, even many
hundred times fold. Even though they are separated. if they are truly
loving and serving God then they shall be given hundreds of times more
closeness as husband and wife in spirit world. They shall be royalty of
When you meet your husband at God's throne, you shall meet him as a
queen of love. Love for God shall ultimately unite kingship and
queenship of love on the highest possible level. That is why on earth
we should want our spouse to love God more than loving us. That's the
way parents and children should think as well. We talk about true
family in the Unification Church, but someone might misunderstand and
lose faith by thinking they are not being given a chance to make their
family because husbands and wives are often sent out on separate
missions. If you are thinking that way, you are mistaken. This is the
way you are going to be elevated into true kingship of love.
Even if you are never with your husband or wife here on earth yet
your love for God is intense, God will melt you into one for eternity,
far more than if you had lived an ordinary life with your family here on
earth. You are becoming an extraordinary person by living for God your
whole life, longing for your family to be together. But once you are
elevated to the eternal world you shall be welded into the most glorious
You shall always remain a subject of the love of God and feel the
intense presence of His love and ultimately move yourself to the
position of God. I walked just this path. I started out in the servant
position and then served in the position of adopted son. then son and
finally parent. Who gives the diploma so you can graduate from one
level to the next? Not God but Satan. You serve Satan's world until
they can say you are far better than any servant in the satanic world
and there is no one else who can meet your standard. Then you move on
to the adopted son's position. There are many physical adopted sons on
this earth, and you must pass all the criteria to be number one. Even
though your step-parents hate you intensely, giving you nothing but
grief, they should not be able to melt you. You should serve them and
ultimately melt their hearts. Then they will sign your diploma saying
that you are beyond their level and there is nothing they can criticize.
When they surrender, you graduate to the next level.
At that point you are eligible to join the Unification Church. At
that point you may think you have reached the final destination, but
then I chase you out to witness and fund raise. I am in a position to
give you the worst kind of tribulation and hardship, but if you endure
with loyalty and filial piety then finally I have to say to God that I
surrender to you. Then you have met the standard of true son and will
be elevated to the parent's position. That is the principle of
restoration by indemnity.
The more you receive persecution and harshness yet endure and love.
the quicker you will get to heaven. God has to allow you to go through
that. Don't misunderstand; God is not punishing you out of hate, but so
that you can win over Satan by your own will and be separated from him.
God wants Satan to be forced to say good-bye to you on every level
because he has no more accusation. If you ever want to turn around and
go back, Satan will chase you out because you don't belong in his world
any more. That's what God wants.
When we look at the entire world in the scope of the dispensation,
we see that we in the Unification Church are one family, including all
five colors of skin. In order to live eternally with the True Parents
in the ideal world, you shall elevate yourself to the true son's and
daughter's position, but here I see that you are at many different
levels. Some are at the servant level, some at the level of adopted
sons, and so forth, but everyone should reach the goal eventually.
God created the physical world as the servant world, the angels as
the adopted son's world and Adam and Eve as His true son and daughter.
You should be able to command lordship over all things and even be able
to command the angelic world. When you join the Unification Church you
do MFT work first so that you can exercise your lordship over all
things. Then you go to restore the adopted son's level, and ultimately
come back to the family. Why do you need a family? That is where you
can taste true parental love, in the true love of God and eternal ideal.
The base for the Kingdom of Heaven is the family. The base for the true
ideal is the family. The base for the true love and happiness is the
family. In this family there shall be no more fighting between father
and mother and there shall be no more tragedy of love.
Parents should not show their tears or fighting to their family, and
in the ideal separation would be unthinkable. Divorce would be like
cutting your own body in half. In order to separate the two of you, you
would have to remove God out of your lives first, which would mean
digging up all the love inside of you and throwing it away. That would
be self-destruction, and who would do that?
You would like to have your family be Godcentered, wouldn't you?
Home church is the base for you to practice this particular way of life.
Then later you will go back to Your relatives and install the ideal in
the midst of your physical family. Everyone of you is now going through
the tribal level since I have finished the nation and world levels.
When you penetrate the tribal level you can go right to your family.
This is where Jesus could not fulfill, so this is your starting point.
You are going to love this tribe, your home church. You will be
persecuted for that and yet you must love them unconditionally. By
meeting that criteria you will ultimately love your family more than
your tribe. Your tribe must bear witness, and signatures from 360 homes
will be given that you are a son of God.
When you have your own family God is going to say that since you
loved your home church tribe so much, you should go ahead and love your
family more than your tribe. You must love your family more than you
love anything else because they represent your tribe, your nation and
world. That's the foundation of heaven. Once you reach this family
level, there will no longer be any need for you to leave them. The
basic atom of society is always the family, so the nation cannot
disregard the family, the building block of heaven.
Now in the process of restoration we sacrifice our families, leaving
them behind to work for the world, but once we restore our families that
phase is all over. The person who cannot serve his parents or brothers
and sisters would not be any good for the society or nation either. You
should be able to receive a diploma signed by your household which
states that you are truly a loving person. With that diploma you can go
out to serve the society and world. In the future world, if you reject
your parents and go out to society, there will be no place you can set
your foot or be accepted. If your own family cannot welcome you then
certainly society will not.
The family is the base for God's love to be connected to you, and
from you to society. If you lose that base then how can you expect to
have any other? When this ideology of the family prevails in America,
this nation will be the greatest of all. The Unification Church is now
providing discipline and training for young people to become this kind
of pious son and daughter who can love the world, yet parents are trying
to kidnap their children from the Unification Church. From the point of
view of true love they are the worst criminals. They are like Judas on
the level of family, betraying the ideal family.
Anyone who rejects the ideal nation on earth is truly Judas on the
world level. That is what communism is doing. On every level we can
find a Judas Iscariot, and when you enter spirit world, the ultimate
Judas is none other than Satan. When we can win over all the betrayers
on each level, we shall bring down the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.
In the Unification Church, therefore, there is no barrier between
white and black, for anyone who is separated by race cannot make this
family. The entire world is heading toward the focal point of the
family. The purpose of the entire dispensation of God was to build that
ideal family here on earth; that was the entire purpose of each religion
and all history. Initially we are setting the conditions for such
families to be restored, and step by step we will actualize it. That
will be none other than the Kingdom of Heaven.
Why did you come to the Unification Church? What is your goal?
First, to find a God-centered ideology in your head, and true love
in your heart. Then you will live in a true family. That's the purpose
of everything. When we have an international holiday like Parents Day
and you come to celebrate, the focal point is always the ideal family.
You know the depth of your yearning and determination to fulfill the
ideal family. If you have that desire then you are entitled to
celebrate Parents Day; otherwise you are not.
Here you are trained in home church, the formation level. Next you
move to the growth level, and will finally end up in the perfection
level of the ideal family. We are ultimately going to restore True
Parents Day and proclaim it all over the world. You celebrate True
Parents Day with True Parents in the center, but in your home church
area you shall be in the parents position and your 360 homes will come
celebrate around you. As far as your tribe is concerned, the day you
meet your husband or wife will be your tribal parents day. When that
day comes your door will be open 24 hours and your home church children
will come from every direction to celebrate. You will have lots of food
and enjoy the day together.
Once your Cain home church is completed there is one more step-you
will go to your home town and form your Abel home church centering on
your relatives and family. Then you shall be truly elevated as messiah.
Once you come to that point you will not have to do the difficult work
of MFT or witnessing because you will have graduated from all that.
Your children won't have to have MFT training or witness door to
door. There will be no more separation between God and men because
their sensitivity will automatically lead them home. We will do all the
difficult tasks from human history that need to be finished instead of
leaving them to our descendants. We will hand down the glory, not the
indemnity. It is a great blessing and a victorious declaration that we
can do home church so that later on we can return to our home towns and
become tribal messiahs.
Once you walk that path and live it in actuality, there will be no
room for Satan ever to come near you with accusation. Unless you
fulfill home church yourself, however, your mission will be handed down
to your children with even greater suffering. Then there will be two
separate worlds, the world of those children who must do home church in
place of their parents, and the world where people are rejoicing over
the true family and true ideal home. God does not want to see that
There is no doubt that MFT and home church are tough jobs, but I
want to see you welcomed in your home towns and living in happy
families. Do your utmost to bring the completion of that goal. Those
who will do it, raise your hands please. God bless you. Let us pray.
