REVEREND SUN MYUNG MOON
LIABILITY - THE DEBT
WE OWE THE PAST

Translator - Col. Sang Kil Han
Can everyone hear Father? Today is the first of April. It is truly
the onset of Spring. The topic for this morning is The Debt We Owe to
the Past and Liberation. Individuals think their own lifetime is life
itself. In a very narrow sense, one has his parents and his parents are part
of a clan and he is born of them. But we have to remind ourselves that ever
since humankind fell, mankind has never truly been born. The original ideal
man and woman and family has not yet been born.
We still remain in the unperfected stage of being born. We need salvation;
we need to be recreated. Everything, political wars and economic unrest, all
these things are preparation for this birth to occur. If you can visualize
two worlds, one with the sun and one without the sun, you see that today
we are living in the world without the sun. It is not just a rhetorical
saying. To say that "we are living in a world without sun" is very
close to reality.
Humankind has never known the direction it must go, nor even the direction
in which it actually is going. If mankind had ever seen a world with the sun,
it would be a different story. However, from their birth, they have never seen
such a thing, never heard of such a thing. They have nothing to compare to,
there is no model, so they keep on living in the dark world and think it is
the right world.
Then, who is God and what is God? In this (analogy) God is like the
sun. What is Satan? Satan is darkness itself. Man is born in total darkness,
but their destination is to go to the world of light and they cannot go by
themselves. They need someone to guide them. In each generation, time or
age, there has been a leader guiding the people. That guidance was like a
candlelight, like a flickering lamp. Sometimes you could see it and sometimes
you could not.
You could not see the broad daylight with their leadership. This has not
been for just one day or two days or a few generations, but for thousands
of generations. Ever since humankind began this situation has been going
on and on. Human history has been one of real desperation. They are born
into the darkness and they cannot see around. They do not know where they
are going and they do not know what is ahead of them.
Their beginning is not certain either. They do not even know where they
came from. Adam and Eve at least knew that they fell. They knew what was
going on then. However, after that generation no one even knew the fact
that they were fallen. Even those people who were religious did not know
what they were doing. They never had a clear idea, "Oh, humankind fell,
so in order to be restored I must go through this religion to reach to God
and my original place." They did not even know that.
Only after the Unification Church emerged did we all know clearly where we
are from and where we are going. The parents that we have are false parents
and therefore at some point we have to meet true parents and cut all the old
ties and make a new grafting upon myself and grow towards God. We know the
fact that love is false love and that the false blood of love is circulating
in our spirit. All these things was never known by humankind. For the first
time, Father is teaching us and now we know.
No one knew the fact that Satan existed. The relationship between Satan
and God, no one knew. The relationship between Satan and humankind, no one
knew. No one knew the fact that the very root was evil and that we have
inherited everything evil from that and we must change that.
All of these things no one really knew. Father has been pioneering this new
area and through Father we have been learning for the first time in history
where we truly come from and where we must go. No one had any real idea
of what hell was. They thought it was some distant place. No one realized
that hell started "right in me, myself." Also, they didn't know
that heaven could start "within myself." No one had even the most
remote idea of that.
No one ever thought, "since hell started within myself, I must erase
hell and begin heaven in myself." No one ever made that intention. Even
the Unification Church members who know all these things only think about it a
few times. Everyday, day to day, they don't think how to do away with hell and
remake "myself" into heaven. The clear concept of heaven and hell
is not something they think about everyday. It is the most important thing,
but many days go by without anyone thinking about it. This is reality.
Furthermore, in our background there are tens of thousands of years of
suffering by God. God had to suffer and persevere the pain in order to one
day save us and bring us around to the original place. No one even thinks
about that much. For millions of years God has suffered like that. Whoever
thought that it would take eight stages, from the individual up to God,
to bring all the walls down before humankind could be delivered up?
For thousands of years, while no one was ever thinking like that, only
God has been working all alone for this goal. How tedious, how painful this
work has been. No one is thinking about that. We must understand that from
where we are we can go directly to heaven, but it has not always been so. The
fall took place in the lowest place, the dungeon of hell.
To fall means to drop down. We went to the lowest place. God, knowing
this, has had to come down to that lowest place and pick mankind up. To
deliver the people to God we must also go and labor in the lowest place,
the dungeon of hell. No one has been thinking about that.
Not only those who do not know, but even here amongst those who know,
no one is willing to go down, to find the lowest place and go there to bring
the people up. No one is thinking about that. Everyone wants to go straight
forward from wherever they are up to the higher place. No one has the idea
that they have to go down and then come up again.
Father is not just saying this. Look at his own life. When he was born,
could he just start the dispensation from there and go straight up to where
he has now reached? No. We all know that he had to go through incredible
suffering. He had to find out where the lowest place on earth existed,
not only one, but every low place and he had to visit there.
Father's past was not that simple, just go down, find the lowest place and
come up. No. When he discovered that Satan was blocking his way, even coming
down to hell, he had to struggle and even more on his way back up. Now,
we don't have to worry about these things. We go down because we already
know to do that.
Satan knew that once Father found his way down and paved the road up, then
everyone could come down and back up. Satan did not want this at all. Even
going down to suffer, Satan tried to stop Father. Father went through that
incredible reality. Since the fall of humankind, Satan has been trying to
block the course of restoration, even the preparation for restoration. Satan
tried to block every step of the way and has never left mankind alone.
We must understand clearly that in order to work this out God established
the Jewish religion and the Christian religion. It was a road or way through
which the people could travel back to the right place. However, that totally
failed. It did not serve this purpose; it did not lead the people directly
to the goal.
Now Father has had to redo the whole thing and we know that history.
The Jewish and Christian religion tried to follow the way that God opened
up, but they did not know what they were doing because they did not know
the final goal.
Today, when Father came to do it all over again, they could help neither
God nor themselves. They just continued doing their rituals. Not only have
they failed to gain the goal, they have actually served as an obstacle. How
incredibly sad this is. They mean to do God's will, but actually they are
building obstacles and there are no fruits. They don't know where they are
going. All this Father had to pioneer.
The clear pattern for religion is that, even if they don't know the exact
reason why, they must first go down and work at it and then come up. This
general pattern is always true. Any major or meaningful religion encourages
in their teaching that they have to leave home, own nothing and start walking
All mankind wants to go up to a nicer place, this is human nature.
However, religion teaches paradoxically that one must go down. They don't
know why, but anyway they must go down. And so, while they might go down,
they don't know why and they struggle. This is what we see today.
Now we can understand our conclusion that through the course of religion we
have to fight the "blood" fight against Satan. We have to fight to
the point of bloodshed. It is not just an easy fight, but involves bloodshed,
life and death, kill or be killed. Every religious man and woman has to
go through that kind of fierce struggle . We must leave every level of the
world, from the family and even down to "myself." We have to get
away from all of that. We have to realize, "I came to exist because of
Satan." That is the root. We must deny that and get rid of that.
We must first give up the world, the Satanic world. We have to then give
up the country to which we belong. Also we have to forsake our clan and our
family. Then, finally, even "myself" we have to give up. We must
go that paradoxical way . Any person of religion who has ordinary arrogance
can never go this way. They think, "I want to be the center. Without
me nothing can be done. I have to be in it." That kind of arrogance
can never ever take them to the lowest place where they should be. It has
nothing to do with God.
The structural form of Satan is always captivating us. We have to break
out of it. When Satan raises himself up it is always, "I." Satan
is always "I must be the center." That kind of self-centeredness
is itself the enemy to ourselves.
For example, an American must find and go to the place where no one else
wants to go, and then come back to where he started from. First go to that
lowly place. Here in America with the highest level of civilization, you rich
people must find the most miserable place. Let us say it is Africa. Even
the African people don't want to live there. So, if even the Africans don't
want to be there, then Satan himself does not live there. From that lowly
miserable point Satan separates.
This is reasonable thinking. The Bible says, "If you want to
live, you must die." This paradoxical thing may be something we talk
about. We might say, "I understand that." Even though we say we
understand it, we do not do it, we do not go along with it. This means that
we cannot pass that point and we have nothing to do with God's world, God's
order. We can see very clearly that even American thinking or consciousness
is not internal. They say about themselves, "Oh I am an American and I
graduated from a certain university." As long as they think like this,
they are under the arrest of Satan, under the net of Satan. They cannot get
away from that. We have to clearly understand this point.
What is it that God wants for a fallen person to do in order to be
saved? Does God want us to go to a university or school? Is it knowledge that
God is seeking? No. God already has knowledge. God does not want authority
or power, not even money. Why? God can make anything anyway.
What God is trying to restore is not money or power or knowledge, but
love. And it is not false love that God is trying to recover. It is true love,
original love that God wants to regain. Jesus emphasized that "You
cannot love your wife, your children, your family more than me." He
said, "You cannot do that, you must love me with the utmost ability
of yourself." It means that Jesus was emphasizing, "You must love
When Jesus died on the cross, he emphasized life. Even in giving away
his life he emphasized the life in man through the true original love. Jesus
died to give life to man. He paid through his own life to give life to other
people. Then why does Jesus have to come again? He comes again in order to
change the lineage. Jesus could not do that 2,000 years ago.
Life centering on the original blood lineage was something that Jesus
could not establish in his lifetime. Did dying on the cross successfully
change the blood lineage of each individual? No. In the Unification Church,
what do we do to change the blood lineage? This is our emphasis. Father
gave us the Blessing. The Blessing was just to make a conditional mark on
the individual. It is not the guaranteed or permanent mark. Do you like
conditional life, conditional blood lineage, conditional love?
It means, "If you do this, then you live. If you don't do this,
then you don't live." Do you need that kind of conditional life? Even
though the conditional mark is small, when it grows within the self, as it
grows it cannot be taken away. After we receive the Blessing, we should take
it so seriously that we would never trade it for anything, any diamonds or
property on earth. And we should always protect it and grow it. This is the
What is this Blessing? It is so precious. Even Jesus did not get
this Blessing in his lifetime. We have received that precious Blessing.
If the parents are not Blessed, how can the children be Blessed? Since, no
human ancestor has ever achieved the Blessing, all the major religions have
emphasized celibacy, not getting married. However, everyone gets married,
but as of yet those marriages cannot reach God. When they go to the spiritual
world they remain outside God's domain.
How serious this is as a practical matter! It is like a school you have
enrolled in. If you pass, you can become someone, but if you fail you don't
make much of life. We are going that kind of a serious course. Everyday we are
getting marks, either life and death, literally. Is Father exaggerating? Is
this abstract talk or is it so real, so concrete that we know we have to
carry it out?
Since we hate the world as a righteous person, we must therefore conclude,
"I hate myself." Why? Because we are a part of this world. The
blood of Satan himself is flowing through our veins. There are still the
marks and scars of Satan's illicit love in us. If you want to get married,
do you want to marry a pure virgin, one who has never come into contact
with another woman or man? Or do you want to marry someone who has exposed
himself to all kinds of garbage? Do you want to marry him? Marry her?
We who are not pure ourselves nonetheless say no to this question.
We may ourselves have no contact, but for hundreds of thousands of years
our obviously ancestors have not been pure. They did not know. It is like
the Americans who now think that the person who has more experience is the
nice person to marry. Is the purpose of marriage just for the enjoyable
experience of man? No. The purpose of marriage is more holy than that.
Through our sexual organs, a new heaven can be opened, the real heaven
can be created. Through those organs the family is born. Then the nation
and world will come. That kind of original palace God intended to use to
make the nation and world. It is far from the idea that it was meant just
for personal enjoyment. The dog may enjoy like that, but man cannot just
enjoy like that.
From these parts, the sons and daughters of God are to be born. They
have a sacred use. Out of such families, the country would be made up and
the countries would make up the world. It is so basic. The holy individual,
the holy family, the holy society, the holy nation and holy world was to be
born out of the marriage of man and woman.
That is the original palace of love. For all of human history this never
existed, but now for the first time in history the holy individuals of the
nation are to be born. The true life is to be born from there. It is not that
someone follows the great religion and then becomes the holy man of God. No,
the holy man of God starts from the original place of love. The holy man is
to begin from there. All the levels of greatness begin there.
What are the sexual organs? They are the palace of true love, true life,
true blood lineage. Without that, God cannot achieve anything. They are
indispensable. Through these parts, man and all else are to be born. It is that
important, not just for brief enjoyment. The eternal value of death Satan has
been successfully achieving here in America through free sex. Through that,
Satan's world is guaranteed. How can true love be found there? How can true
lineage be found there?
Who can say that in the reality of America's situation, true man and
true woman can come about? It is hopeless and this is not just talking.
This is very real. Father is not making up a story. This is cold reality
and we must understand it. When we become naked we must understand that
this is to be cursed and condemned. We must first understand that. Do you
understand? Do you have something to do with it or nothing to do with it? Is
Father talking about you or about someone else? Yes, you have to know it is
When that person walks about proudly and says, "I know True Parents
and I can go to East Garden," do you think that Satan will let him go
respectfully or follow right after him? Satan will go everywhere that such
a person goes. You are so vulnerable to invasion by Satan. You have so many
strings attached to Satan trailing behind you.
Can you feel that? Are you so clean within yourself that Satan cannot go
anywhere that you go, or are you looking for what pleases you now and not
thinking of what must be done for the future? Isn't that your reality? Isn't
that generally true for you? When have you tried to avert your eyes and say,
"I am looking for something which is the lowest?" Is it that Father
is worse than us and that he has to go to prison to do something? No. It is
because he is more serious.
The debt, the liability, what we owe to history is the topic for this
Sunday. The main topic of Father's sermon this morning is how to liquidate
this debt that we have incurred within ourselves.
Once we pay back this debt, liberation awaits us. The condition
of indemnity, of paying back is essential in order for us to leave the
Satanic world and go back to God's world. We can even adopt the concept of
bankruptcy. If you owe a certain amount of money in ordinary conditions,
you have to pay everything back. If you go bankrupt, then you pay back a
symbolic amount, 10 cents for every dollar or even lower than that.
Who sets up that condition? The bankrupt person cannot set their
own condition. Neither can someone on their own level set up that
condition. Someone higher up has to do that, the government or even the
president himself. They can say, "given the situation, no one will
object if you back the small amount." Can Satan set up the condition
for himself? No. God has to do that because God is outside the situation.
God has to deal with the situation. He may say something like, "You
owe this much and you have to pay this much, so let us settle this point
as such." There are ways to liquidate debts, but you have to follow
them. The only person who can set up the condition regarding the fallen
individual and fallen family is someone who did not fall and does not have
fallen lineage. That person is True Parents set up by God.
It is a staggering thought of how important is that small condition from
God and True Parents through which we can pay back our enormous debt to
Satan. Originally the Archangel could not get married. God did not permit
that to happen. What are we? Fallen man is the offspring of that angel. How
is it that we can get married? How precious this is. Even though it may
appear to be small, it is not at all a small thing. Through that condition
we get married. How precious this condition is.
We came out from such a difficult place and are coming into such a precious
place. How precious is this place that we could never afford in an ordinary
time, but now we are here. How fearful it is because if we fail, we fail more
than we could ever imagine. Our spouse is too precious to even imagine. We
have to be fearful to even think about how precious our spouse is. Then,
do you want to go ahead and change your own spouse?
Is it the intention of God and Father to let that kind of ragged person
enjoy himself and take the Blessing? When Father gave the Blessing he not
only had in mind that individual and his family, but also that good nation
and world. Father had the heavenly world in his mind. We must occupy that
goal which Father set up before us.
Now Satan occupies the whole world. How can we make the condition and take
it back? He controls everywhere, even the spiritual world. Each individual
Blessed couple is essential. Through each couple Father wants to turn the
evil world into the good world. Does it happen automatically? No. We must
first connect with the good lineage, the right blood lineage. And we have
to work our entire life to turn around from evil into goodness. You are
standing right at the pivot, at the center.
This is exactly what Father is doing. Centering on his family, Father
places them like a pivot and makes the turn from the evil world into
the good world. Was he free to do so? No. No one let him. Satan always
intervened. America tried to stop him from doing that and Russia tried to
stop him from doing that. Even the spiritual world has resisted Father's
effort to turn it around from bad lineage into good lineage. He is still
working on it.
By 1991 all things will be completed. Father has established the restoration
of the elder son's position. The first born which is Satan's position
has been dominating the world. Now the time has come for the second born,
Abel, to take his proper place. To restore the sonship now means to restore
parentship. You have parentship so that you can have sons and daughters. You
have to have your own tribe, nation and world.
Father now indemnifies the country and the world. To illustrate, from the
root up to the top of the new bud, Father has already made this tree. Father
then made all of us like the branches. Branch means "tribal messiah's
The atmosphere is now good. No one can stand against us. Why? The center is
standing now. It is established. It is a new day! Connect and graft strongly
to the trunk. If you can do that, even though the branch once came from Satan,
he cannot claim it.
We must have a clear idea and confidence that our blood lineage is now
changed into True Parents lineage. It is no longer the same. We are saved,
we are restored back to the original root. We have been recreated. It takes
great confidence. You have to truly know that inside and out before you can
be confident. Go out to the streets of New York city and when you see the
prostitutes, say "With my own hands I will convert that situation."
We must have that feeling for every single town and village and individual. We
have that pledge every single moment.
There are terrorists, gangsters, mafia people who create evil. We must
see that Satan is penetrating a hole into the people every single day and
moment. We must be able to see that through our eyes. That is the way that
Father must go, that all of us must go. We may have started at one point,
but we cannot go straightforward. We have to return to all the extremes and
make them good. Then we can come back to our original state and return to
God. We cannot go back to God straight away simply because we are Blessed.
Now we know of the Blessing in different terms. What is the Blessing? It
is the system through which we can repay all our debt. There was no way we
could repay all our debt, but now we have found a way to do it. Even though
it is a condition, it is a legitimate condition and it works. Otherwise we
are doomed. There is no other way, just die, but through this condition of
Blessing there is a way for us to live.
We are bankrupt and there is no way for us to make anything good, so we
should just die as a result of being bankrupt. Imagine that we tried and
tried but still remained bankrupt. We have no money to repay our debt. We
couldn't even find one cent. However, Father has given us a condition and
through that condition, Father gave us the money to pay back, so now we have
one narrow course of living again.
Look at Father. He started out single-handedly. He was the first one and
didn't know all these things in the beginning, but had to pioneer every level
from the individual all the way up to the world level. He established the
legitimate condition of changing sonship and parentship. Then what should we
do? Can we just jump from where we are to the good place? No. Father wishes
it could happen that way, however the same course remains. We have to go the
same way that Father went. Even though our work is much less than Father's,
still we have to follow that same pattern.
How can we indemnify our course? We can indemnify through our clan.
Just as Father paid out and indemnified the world to buy us back, we have
to pay out and buy our clan. They don't even know this, but we have to show
them clearly and help them go this course as well. What must we do?
Even the president of a country, when he comes to understand the Unification
Church, has to go through a course and a certain indemnity condition. His
condition might be to ask his entire country to eat only one meal a day so
that the savings from the other two meals could be collected and spent on
restoration. He has to go through that kind of a course as well. He has to
feel that he must help the poor and starving people.
There is a condition remaining. We still have a course to go. If we
don't do it, what happens? If we don't do as Father did with his own clan
and nation, what happens? Satan will catch up with us sooner or later. If we
are offered a great deal of money and we have the choice between the money
and the Blessing, we have to cling to the Blessing. This is the thread,
more than the thread, the rope of life.
You American members are asking Father to pay you a salary. How can we
save America this way? Father is dealing with the problems besetting this
entire nation. Should he also take care of individual problems? Father is
desperate enough to ask that the American members hold him for ransom and
sell him out somewhere so that he can invest even that money into saving
America itself. Father himself is in that kind of situation.
Father has borrowed a great deal of money to use and invest in saving
this country. And then you can say, "Well, my salary is too low and I
have to go somewhere else to make more money." What kind of a member
is that? Every penny we make we must give to be used for restoration and
we should feel that if Father pays a salary that is fine, but if he doesn't
that is also fine.
America is a rich country, but these riches never were meant to let you
enjoy an individual life. God gave these riches to save the whole world. We
have already received so much. Have you ever gotten together and collected
everything and offered it back to Father? Have we ever done that? Instead
we say something like, "Father you brought me from the easy life to the
difficult life, so you should pay me." Is that the American mentality?
Imagine. Look at yourself. Where do you best fit? In the satanic world or
in the godly world? You can say it in your own words. Are you more suitable
belonging to the satanic world or to the world of God, knowing what God
has gone through. Tradition does not exist here in America. It is zero. No
tradition exists here in America.
Today is the onset of spring. Spring begins as of today. Now is time to
sow the seed. When the seed is sown, does it say, "I will just remain
a seed," Or does it say, "I must grow and bud up and become the
big tree or the large crop?" No matter how precious that seed may be,
the seed decays and rises to the bud. Then the bud flourishes and returns
back to the seed again.
If you choose to remain as a seed, the best seed, the most fantastic
seed, what good will it do you? Soon you will decay with no bud. Do you
follow this? No matter how good Americans may be, we have to give rise to
the bud. We must grow up. You might say, "I like to get the Blessing
and I enjoy being greater than other people." This just cannot be. If
it worked this way, then God would not have had to struggle so hard.
The new seed will give rise to the bud and spread out, going out to all
the nations and those nations can be recovered, restored. The new bud is
coming out of the new seed. This is the new tradition. That new tradition
will be such a high quality tradition that it will flourish and will overflow
in America to reach out to the world. It will even reach to the spiritual
world. Is America able to do that?
You are proud of being an American. Let that be the manure, the
fertilizer. Out of this fertilizer let the real bud spread out. If we draw it,
here is a new bud coming out and surrounding it are all rotten things. You
have to even cut the root out.
That bud can branch out and as that branch grows it becomes like a tree,
like the true olive tree. Here, engrafting takes place. The plant takes a new
root by connecting to the earth. God wants to cut away all the old system. It
is rotten, but it can be used for fertilizer. God wants to foster the pure
bud, but it has to come from the pure root. Then, God can cut away all the
old parts and use that for fertilizer. This is our perspective.
The effects of the fall are formidable, staggering to the mind. We just
say the word, "fall," and that is it? No. In every area of life
it affects us. Father gave the Blessing to us and sent us out as tribal
messiahs. America is like fertilizer. If we really grow, then the world can
truly see the light of God again. We must understand the new grafting and
connect firmly into Father's tradition.
Burn everything, all your past memories and attachments, even old clothing
which brings up past thoughts. We wouldn't want to even look at the Empire
State building without first building a much nicer and taller building than
that. These old buildings will. We don't want to remember the past, not even
God wants to remember the past.
God cannot bear to think about his own sons and daughters being kidnapped
and molested by Satan. But everything of the past reminds God about exactly
that. There is not one thing in the past of which God can say, "Oh, that
is truly mine." Think about this in every city to which you go. This is
why we have seen Father showing so much interest and giving so much investment
into new buildings and creating a new civilization and culture. There is no
area of culture that Father doesn't reach, not one. Why? Because he wants
to eradicate every trace of Satan.
How much has man been diverted building evil civilizations? How much
pain has it been giving to God throughout history? What then is Father's
topic this morning? Paying the historical debt and liberation. There are
two kinds of debts. Not until we pay everything back and are free and clear
can we start working on building the new godly world.
When we fail to demonstrate that we belong to God 100%, Satan can then
come out and claim, "That amount is mine," and he will draw us
back. No matter how much work you have done, no matter how brilliant it was,
if you wrote many volumes of books and each was a wonderful work, but if one
sentence stated, "therefore, everyone will go into communism,"
what happens? It negates all that you have done. The conclusion of your
work comes to Satan.
This is why we have to be careful. No matter how much we do, if we make
one serious mistake in that way, it is very serious. Secular humanism has a
very fearful meaning. It has nothing to do with God. How would you feel if
you enjoyed a whole day in a beautiful garden but on the way out you stepped
on a very dirty thing? How would you feel? It ruins the day. You lose all
the yearning for that day's memory.
We rejoice with the Unification Church, we love it, we cry for it, we repent
for it. We have done everything that we could do. We may be proud of all that,
but when we make some mistake in lineage, fall with another man or woman,
what good will all that do? This fall, doing this again after being saved,
is very complicated and Father has always been thinking about this. Can the
True Parents bear to see that? Should he look at it? What should he do? What
is more principled? If this happens, we must know how serious it is.
We must understand that Father gave everything to America and the free
world. If is does not bear fruit, then perhaps the most severe judgment may
have to begin in the free world. Because of whom may this happen? Unless you
make a living with 1/3 of your means, Father doesn't expect you to fulfill
your mission towards the world.
When you earned your Ph.D., you were very happy. You thought, "Oh,
it is nice that Father paid everything and I studied and got my Ph.D."
When you were proud of yourselves, were you proud of yourself first or did you
carefully introduce to others all about what God and True Parents have done,
gratefully thanking them first? Were you glad to have a name card saying,
"So and so, Ph.D." yearning to witness about God's work and Father's
work, or were you glad to have it just to represent yourself as a Ph.D.?
You mostly remained quiet about the Unification Church. You never spoke
out about God and the Unification Church. When Father went to prison, he was
not ashamed about that, not like we are ashamed. To be ashamed means to go
under Satan, not to go above Satan. We all know that in every situation we
must go above Satan.
In the Unification Church, do we go straightforward and proudly proclaim
the Divine Principle? Do you disguise it and try to do some other way? How
about the theory of Victory Over Communism? It is very powerful, but can it
ever substitute for the Divine Principle? Can the Unification Church replace
the Divine Principle itself? No. We must understand that.
The law of indemnity is utmost. All other things are peripheral. All these
Ph.D.s and the connection to that is powerless. The only thing that works is
the law of indemnity. There are two kinds of debts. The first debt is the one
you pay back to cut Satan away from you. Satan always has a lien on you. The
only way to pay back is to have a stronger love than Satan's love. This
greater love has to grow from individual to family, from nation to world.
Our love, God's love, has to be stronger than Satan's side of love.
That is one debt that we have to pay back. The second debt is this. How much
have we made God work in history? How much have True Parents been working? How
miserable have God and True Parents been? Giving everything that they have
and forgetting that they gave anything at all. Giving and forgetting, giving
and forgetting, again and again, again and again. We now know that this is
Even now at this moment we only understand this with our heads. The only
way that we can truly understand is by doing this for our own clan. Through
our family and our clan we can be recreated. Through this course we can
have a true experience. Then we can begin to understand how much God and
True Parents have done for us. We have only heard how Father has suffered,
but we never suffered like that ourselves.
The only way that we can know is to suffer for our family and clan, and
then we shall know. Father was severely persecuted for his work, but today
we don't need to go through that kind of persecution. We must understand
that our tribe is our ground of life. You can get up in the morning and go
to bed righteously with your clan. You cannot lead the heavenly life without
We have two kinds of debts. The first one is to pay back to Satan in order
to get rid of him. How can we pay back Satan's debt and cut off his tie to
us? We have to demonstrate and exert a higher and deeper love of filial piety,
greater patriotism and saintliness. Even Satanic people express filial piety
and become patriots. There are many saints in history as well. Whatever we
do, we must do it better and with more intensity. Then, everything lesser,
everything inferior, everything Satanic will retreat.
Here in America, Father worked so diligently that everyone who knows it
can see that Father worked harder than anyone who ever came to this country
or was born in this country. In all the history of this country, Father has
given the most, given the best to this country. Father has given the best
love to America. Eventually the best love will win victory no matter what court
or whatever tries to chase it away. No lesser love can chase him away.
Before Satan can take Father's foundation, he has to work out the whole
universe over again. Obviously, he cannot do this. So America will come
to Father's way. Already communism has crumbled. Even though Father hated
communism as an ideology which ruthlessly denied God, he did not hate the
communist people enslaved under that ideology.
The world's pinnacle helping to make communism crumble was Father. He did
away with the worst Satan, even in the communist countries. We must follow
the same course Father has gone. Of course, each one of us cannot crumble the
whole structure of communism, or even one country such as Russia. However,
we must do that same thing for our own family, our own clan.
You as an individual are Abel. All the individuals in your family and
tribe are Cain. Adam was the eldest son, the parents and the king. But,
Satan took God's position. He took the first born position, then the parents
position and the king's position. Adam could not be the true son, parent and
king because he fell. When the fall took place, it took place in the family,
not on the world level.
By doing on the clan level what Father has done for the world, eternal life
begins for us. True love begins centering on God. The true tree starts to
grow. In order to gain eternal life, what must we do? Father has explained
how to cut off Satan. But we must also pay back our debt to God and to
Father. This is the recreation process. What do we do?
We must do just as God did and as Father has done. We must work and invest
everything into raising up our own family and tribe. When we do this we will
experience difficulty. Then we will understand God and Father. How are you
to do that? You must serve them unconditionally. They will short change you,
but after you give everything, forget it.
Give and forget. Give and forget again. This is the recreation providential
work. How about you? You say, "I believe in Unification and worked
three years, ten years and I have repaid so much." That is Satan's
concept. Invest and forget. I forget everything even until now!
When we say, "I've done such and such in the church for ten years,
twenty years" and remember that and want to be repaid, that is clearly
Satan's pattern. You may say, "I worked in the Unification Church for
ten years, twenty years, where is my future, where is my guarantee, someone
pay me back!" But that is clearly Satan. Did Father ever once say
that to mankind, to America, to anyone of us? No. He gave to us and forgot,
gave to us and forgot.
In the same way we have to do for our clan. We have to invest and we have
to forget, invest again and forget. Don't expect anything out of that. When
Father bought some property and consecrated it with holy salt, should he
ever sell that again to someone else? No matter how much unconsecrated
land is placed in exchange for one piece of Father's holy consecrated land,
it cannot be compared. It has that much value.
The Washington Times has been an example of Father doing
this way. He pays and pays, gives and gives, invests and forgets. He is
thinking about giving even more. We are paying millions of dollars every
month to support the Washington Times. And some Washington Times members
say, "My salary is not enough. I want more to support my family."
That's out of proportion. It does not stand to reason. This is why Father
taught us about fundraising. Day or night, if you need money to support
your family or whatever, do a business like that. Did Father take it easy
in the evening as he has worked at restoration history?
After a hard days work, Father would go back to his bedroom at midnight
or later and study English. Why would he have to study English, except for
your sake? Father understands what it takes for you to go this path. Just
as Father has tried to learn English, Americans should be trying to learn a
foreign language. Why? Think about it. American people should be thinking
about countries all over the world.
Last year, you went out for 40 days witnessing throughout the world.
Everyone hesitated. They would have rather not gone if they could have
helped it, but they jumped in and when they came back they had such a great
experience. This year you will go again. After three years you may begin
to understand, "Oh, this is what the world is about. I as an American
never understood that."
This is Father's strategy to establish the original tradition of the
Unification Church. Father has done this to you to revive that original
tradition because there is no real Unification Church tradition here in
America. We must understand this point clearly.
Father may never give Blessing again to those couples who broke their
Blessing through the fall. Can Father give the Blessing and people fall
and then Father give the Blessing again and again? No. The Blessing is not
How important the Blessing is. Now we clearly know how to get rid of
Satan. We also know how to liberate Father and God. Then, we shall also get
liberated. Isn't that the right order? Should we get liberated first and
then Father second and finally God? It doesn't work that way. God has to
be liberated. Then the parents can be liberated. Finally all the children
will see the day of liberation.
This amazing time has never existed before in history. There will never
be another time in the future in which this will happen again. One time
in history, the only time, in our time with Father all this can happen. If
the Christians knew what we know today they would clearly outdo us. However,
Father is on our side because we are the ones Father gave Blessing to. Father
couldn't give Blessing to the Christians.
Did you know that all over the world and in the communist regions,
they are truly crying to see Father, to see True Parents. They are saying,
"If Rev. Moon called me, I would get there any time." Where are the
Americans? Are they ahead of you or are you ahead of them? Who is ahead? They
are in front of the race. The communist countries have been well organized from
the very top down to the lowly hierarchy. They have been neatly organized. Is
America well organized?
Which kind of nation is actually easier to permeate with a new thought or
idea, a life saving idea? America is meeting a challenge and this is why Father
has been spending time this morning to give you a clear description, to give
you an edge. Father has taught us this morning how to work with a deeper heart
than the Satanic world so that you can separate from Satan and be free. Then,
you can work as True Parents have in the tribal messiah position.
The tribal messiah position represents God's position. Instead of God,
you are there, investing and forgetting, repeating thousands, thousands and
thousands of times. This is the religious background. Father persevered
through Old and New Testament conditions so that in the future that time
could come. That time is the end of the world. What is the end time? It
is when Satan is cast out of this world. Then God, with the messiah, True
Parents, liberate this world. That's it! That's the same purpose of the
providence. Isn't it? It's clear.
You have to love more than Satan's level and go through the historical
viewpoint. This is the way to pay back to Satan, separate from Satan. How can
you be recreated? Through God and True Parents. God is recreating centering
on True Parents, on true love. Invest and forget, invest and forget. That
is true love. That is God's position, Father's position, Jesus himself went
that way. Satan cannot break this apart.
Father is marching on through Satan's barriers. Father is tearing down
Satan's barrier in the family, tribe, nation, world and cosmic world. I am
tearing down all these barriers. Why? To make the elder's right position,
parents position and the kingship position. All those positions are
restored. That is first Adam's position.
First born means the elder's position. He was to be the first parents,
true parents, and the first king. Those three positions have to be brought
back to God's position. You have everything. Centering on true love,
you have God and True Parents. You always have God, True Parents and the
true love center. You have, centering on true love, the connection to true
life. That connection to life is the inheritance of blood lineage. That is
the connection to true live, true love. That means God represents through
you the place of love, life and blood lineage.
The messiah is the True Parents position. Father indemnified the nation,
world and cosmic world levels. You call Father, "True Parents."
Whose True Parents? Your True Parents. It is not for me. True Parents is
meaningful when centered on the children. I don't need True Parents. You
need True Parents. That means you must represent the position of True
Children. Isn't that so? Parents and children automatically center
on love. They unify and become one. Equal and one. Unification means
one. Harmony means one. Centering on what? Love, true love, true love.
Everyone can do that. I embrace true love everywhere. Everything
connects, no problem. The individual base, family base, national base,
world base, no problem. Since I came to America over 16 years ago, I have
been a foreigner. You are a foreigner to me and I am a foreigner to you, but
for one thing. I am always thinking, This is my next country, my next home
country. I was born in Korea and that is my country. Centering on my country,
I have my home town. I need my home town, my country and my world. After
these unify and become one, I can connect the spiritual world.
"This is the principled viewpoint. Until I could cultivate that
I went through serious persecution. Everywhere, they shot arrows at me.
How can Satan's side fall down in front of Rev. Moon, only one man?
The family system mobilized and attacked me. The country system did just
the same. America and the Soviet countries also did the same.
In ten years from now until the twenty-first century will begin. Think
about it. How much will the Unification Church rise to a higher level? Last
year, April 19th, the conference in Moscow took place. In one year's time
what has happened to the world? Think about how much Satan's world can be
turned around to the other side in ten years.
From now we have the atmosphere to make our position. You know that.
Go down and visit every home in New York and even the high level homes
in Washington D.C. How famous is Rev. Moon in their minds? Many of them
respect me. They may say, "He is an abnormal man. In his own lifetime
he made a great foundation all over. Amazing man, Rev. Moon." This is
reality. Not fiction. Reality.
You have the atmosphere. Satan cannot accuse you. How can Satan accuse
you? He accuses when Unification Church members go their own way, but Satan
cannot find a condition against Rev. Moon. He will always fall down. So,
with Father, you have a good atmosphere. Father has made every indemnity
condition. Why did Father do it? Originally, the fallen parents were the
worst parents. The indemnity condition is to take out completely that root
from the world. True Parents had to do that. I had to take out Satan's
original root. I had to take out the individual root, my own family root,
tribal, national, world and cosmic level root from Satan's side. I had to
take all these out. After taking out the old root, I made the foundation
for the new world.
True Parents replace the first worst parents and make the new root.
This is for Blessed families. The fallen family went an individual way. Father
appeared in this world making a new family system all over the world. From
a few to 5,000 and 6,000, more, the families will spread out. Those families
mean I am sending out the tribal messiah. No matter how big Satan's tree is,
how rotten, the root is taken out. It is dead.
I made that foundation. Satan cannot attack. You can attack and chase
out Satan. It is a different time. This world is separating from Satan. True
Parents made for the children a victorious value of love. You can inherit
that. How? Centering on true love. That is the original concept. Love has
the power to inherit automatically. That is why I am able to give you the
authority of tribal messiah's position. You don't know how high of a level
that is. Higher than Jesus can stand.
Why? Jesus could not have a family. After the Blessing, you have
had families, isn't that so? That level is more than what Jesus Christ
could reach. Is it true or not? If it is true, how great is the value!
Jesus paid such incredible indemnity and for 2,000 years there was more
payment in Christian history. There was blood everywhere, that kind of
How can you stand in the tribal messiah position? You received the Blessing
and forgiveness. Everyday you have to digest and clean up this world. That
is God's position. Just as the Parents did it, you have to understand how
much they went through. From that you will find how precious is one family,
one nation, one world. You will find God created with a cosmic idea. You
have to stand in the representative position. Then you will realize God's
position and the messiah's position, Jesus' position and Father's position.
You will clearly understand and liberate God, True Parents, Jesus.
There is no other way. How can you stand in front of God and say that you
are victorious? You don't have anything in front of God. You didn't know
anything about family base and tribal base. Unification members didn't know
that. The only one who knew was Father. Mankind didn't know the fallen world
situation. The only ones who knew were True Parents.
Restoration comes from parents. The children don't know that. All over
this world, even Unification Church members were in the same situation. You
didn't know, but you knew that Rev. Moon's couple is the True Parents. If you
go to God, you can point them out and say, "That is the real one!"
You can understand that only if you know the reality of the True Parents. So,
you must take the tribal messiah mission and go to its completion, until it
is all finished. This is the last turning point of humankind's history. This
is the providential viewpoint and perspective.
This is that time, that age. You stand on the rim. This is the rim
atmosphere. You are standing on the edge of the cliff. You cannot drop down,
you must not drop down. This is the world's situation. How can we turn the
left side and the right side around? I have had to turn the world around
from 100 different directions and connect that situation back to God's
I had to bring it back to the original Adam and Eve, True Parents'
concept and position. Then, we can connect a new reality to the kingdom of
heaven. No matter what we have to go over. You cannot take one step to the
left side or right side. Immediately, Satan will attack you. Satan was always
behind Moses like a shadow. The same thing was for this world wilderness
course. Father passed over it. The Israelites had to face 7 tribes waiting
to attack them. We don't have that kind of attacking atmosphere. We can be
Your live in your own country. It is not an enemy country. Every kind
of people live here. It is like a world level Israel. Do you understand
this? Our mission is to make a new tradition. That is the second generation's
mission. That is why I made up and sent out the tribal messiahs. What is
the tribal messiah position? The fallen tradition does not exist there. Take
action. God is giving the power to you. You can stay all over the world and
they will welcome you.
Don't inherit Satan's world tradition. Father has made the new
tradition. That is the tribal messiah's tradition. The Israelites entered
Canaan after 40 years in the wilderness. Think about how miserable their
situation was. It was like a beggar's, even worse. In Canaan the people
had property and many things. They had good houses, good cattle, good food,
good sons and good daughters.
The Israelites looked at that and compared it with their miserable
situation. They thought, "I want to marry there and take that kind of
house." This kind of problem existed. They went down into Satan's
domain. We now have the same situation! American people and society look
down on us, but no matter how famous or high level they are, you have to be
determined inside saying, "They have to follow me."
Why? The Israelites are in the subject position. The Canaanites are in
the object position. The subject position means the center point, the center
place. The center cannot move. The center is only one place, not two. You
are taking the center point. It cannot move. Once it is set up it must go on
forever. Centering on true love, man and woman. After the Blessing there
is only one concept. The wife's concept, husband's concept, God's concept,
True Parents' concept are all only one concept.
You have to make this forever. No matter how difficult. I don't care. The
center point is the forever position. It is only one point, not two
places. Is this clear? Stand and digest and absorb everything from Satan's
tribe. Centering on God's love, life and lineage you have power more than
True Parents are standing there with their family surrounding them,
digesting everything completely. It is one unified place. Surrounding
that comes the tribe and nation, then the world and spiritual world.
Connecting with that is one world centering on God's true love. No matter
how much Satan and the world want to take away or accuse that place there
is no way that it can happen.
This morning I have made it clear how you can separate from Satan
completely. Stand in the tribal messiah's position and go through recreation
by your own activity, experience and foundation. You will understand for the
first time how much persecution True Parents suffered. You will understand
what God went through.
Now there is a world atmosphere. Satan cannot appear and attack you.
Go back to your parents and ask them, "were you once against me very
strongly?" They will answer, "Yes." And you can ask them,
"Is that good or bad?" Their eyes are clear now and they will
say, "Bad." How can they repent? There is only one way. They can
We have now the victorious foundation of world level persecution for more
than forty years. You can understand how God and True Parents went through
so much persecution and still gave forgiveness. This is reality. How can
you go through the same situation? Is the Divine Principle the true way or
not? Shall we have one church or two churches? From the time of Paul many
tribes appeared, Cain's church and Abel's church. Without True Parents the
children cannot make a horizontal base.
Centering on one place, from True Parents, we can make a circle around
four corners. Satan cannot control this space. Centering on the tribal
messiahs we make that circle, that space which Satan cannot rule. Then,
the spiritual world and God can come down. Your ancestors will come. Like
Adam and Eve, your ancestors will protect you from the angelic position.
Now you are tribal messiahs. Connect your family to that. Connect your
nation and world to that. Automatically Satan cannot come there. Centering on
True Parents everything connecting will automatically belong to God. Originally
this world belonged to God. We have to separate completely this Satanic world
from God's world. This is the whole purpose of history to come to this one
time. How wonderful is this time. Don't forget this precious time.
Now you understand clearly how to pay back your debt to Satan and liberate
God and True Parents. Originally you should have gone through the course of
tribal messiah, national messiah, cosmic level messiah in order to connect
to God's position. True Parents already did that. You have only to do the
tribal messiah course. Why? You have a native town. Unification members have
a home town. Father also has Chung-Ju, his home town. It is only one place,
one special place, one central place.
Humankind is born everywhere and each person has their own native town. How
can those places be connected to God's original concept? That is the tribal
messiah's mission. Until now the contents of Satan's history has been only
false history, the history of bad parents.
You set up the tribal messiah's position and connect that to the original
unfallen Adam's position, the national and world level messiah. The tribal
messiah's position is Jesus' position. Jesus' position or mission is to
raise up Adam's fallen position. Father is standing on the national and world
level base, sending you out as tribal messiahs. That you are creating Jesus'
position means you are recreating Adam's position.
So then, you can go back to you parents standing in the position of
unfallen Adam, horizontally connecting from all four corners everyone from
every place. Formation, growth, perfection are three levels. They are all
connected. The individual is formation, the family is growth and the tribe
is what? [Perfection] Yes, Perfection!
That is the principle of creation. Three levels have to be passed
over. Originally the three levels each took seven years. Now they are
represented conditionally. These three levels, individual, family and tribe,
you connect to the trunk. How can you connect? If the branches are connected
to the trunk already, it is no problem. Horizontally you are going out to
the country with the messiah's viewpoint. Adam's position is there. Jesus'
position is there. True Parents are there. This is you, formation, growth
True Parents followed this same system for the nation, world and cosmic
world. You engraft that same system. Your home is Adam's position. You
are Jesus' position. The national base is Father. Father's life went this
formula way. All over the world, Unification members will make this kind
of home. By making that kind of home all over the earth, God's nature and
power can come.
Where are you from? [Alamo, California]. You make that kind
of foundation and you are connecting your country to God's nation,
God's native country. Otherwise there is no way. Father has made this
concept clear. Now you know your mission, but you have to take action!
Immediately take action. After this time you go to the spiritual world.
You will be accused there. This is not a concept. It is reality.
Your ancestors will come and say, "Why didn't you learn Korean?"
Language is the essence of culture. American people who speak Korean can
make connection to that cultural background. That is how we can make one
cultural way. It is a problem. Now it's clear isn't it?
There are two ways to paying our historical debt and finding liberation. One
is separating from Satan and the other is taking the agonized position
of God and True Parents. The only way to do that is the tribal messiah
mission. Otherwise you cannot connect to God in a straight position. All
nations have to come under God. That's it. That's it.
We must know the path clearly. Do you understand what Father has portrayed
up to this point? Father's intonation is difficult. It would be odd if
Father could speak clear English at the age of seventy. Father cannot
do that. When Father didn't understand English so much he thought he was
speaking fairly well, but now Father understands what he is saying. He knows
that the interpreter is missing the most important things because in English
the most important points are reserved for the last. By the time all the
small things are said the interpreter forgets the main points.
In Korean it is not so. The most important things come first. As you
go on you might forget, but it is okay, only small things. Here you cannot
afford to do that. Father hears the translator and says, "That isn't
what I'm trying to say." Father is even more determined that you learn
Korean. If you go to Korea and Father is conducting an important conference
there, it will only be in Korean. You cannot translate into English the
crux of the thought. The truly important things you cannot translate. You
must understand Father in Korean.
If you come to Korea and don't understand Korean, you will just sit
there like a sack of potatoes. You don't understand and you cannot speak,
just sitting there like a bag of rice. So we must understand and clean out
the past. Father for the first time now is going to South America. Father
has done enough here, more than his share in (North) America. What did
Father do here?
In the early 1980s there was a transition from liberal to conservative
direction in this nation. They said it would take scores of years, but Father
did it in only a few years. In 1975, America retreated from Vietnam, lost
the war and retreated. America became an underdog, its pride went down and
the world didn't recognize America. That the conservatives came into power
in the 1980s was not possible unless Father bore the cross for the sake of
America. Not many people know this. Someone did it, but no one knows exactly
who, but no one can deny that this happened in history.
If the young people from all these ivy league schools could inherit from
Father, they could do for this world many times over what Father has done. It
is something that can be learned. Father taught us this morning so clearly,
point by point, how to do everything. Then, what is the meaning of Father
staying in America all the time?
The conclusion of this morning's sermon is, "Do your tribal messiahship
seriously. Make it work. Make it successful." That is it. Thousands of
words can be saved. It is the wise person, no matter what is being said to
him, no matter what the central person figure says such as "Stay for
this and help with that..." who disregards all this and goes to the
home country and lives as the tribal messiah.
When you pass your home town and there is a trail leading there, pass that
trail and make a monument saying, "This is my tribal messiahship."
Go there and hoist the Unification Church flag every day. Sound the bugle and
say, "Come, listen to me." As soon as they hear you, even one word,
they can be hooked to you, to God's words.
How can you get eternal life elsewhere after such reasoned explanation,
without talking just spiritually? What can be stronger than reason? Even the
Japanese members do the tribal messiah mission here in this Cain type country
just as they would their own real home town. After successfully doing that,
they can go back to Japan and finish their tribal messiah work in one week.
Do just as Father has done. Father's first country is Korea, but this is
his second country, his second home town. Now, he is going back to Korea to
make the unification of north and south. When he needs you here in America,
then all across the world we shall come to help Father in Korea. The subject
stands in the center and makes a circle. All those points are equal. They
connect horizontally to that central place. The vertical place is only one
place, but there are many, many horizontal places.
So it is for man and woman too. Centering on eternal true love they
can evolve into a stronger and bigger power. Everyone wants the stronger,
bigger embrace. Everyone, including me, has that kind of ambition.
Now we know clearly. There are two things we must do before we expect to
be liberated. We understand this now. We must separate from Satan and do the
tribal messiah mission. Those who heard and understand this point clearly this
morning, raise your hands. Your ears are a treasure. You have to bow down
to your own ears. How precious they are. You have to bow down and worship
your eyes which could trace Father's gestures and expressions today.
All of this effort has been done to make you, one individual, perfect. Even
the Gulf war was fought to make you perfect. If Bush is elated, it is
actually that he is rejoicing for you. Everything is for the purpose of
recreation. This is Father's sermon this morning. Prepare yourself in every
way that you can to begin your tribal messiah mission. Until that time prepare
yourself. With this kind of heart, Father is giving you this sermon.
In the future when Father has his tomb, would you be buried closer
to Father's tomb or far away? Would you be buried in America or Korea,
the northern part of Korea to be specific? [Korea] Why? The closer area to
Father's tomb is more indemnified area and closer to heaven. That means you
would go to die in North Korea. That is theoretically a correct conclusion.
If Father then asks you to go to North Korea, would you go? [Yes] Father
might go and sleep in the southern tip of Pusan because of all the people
coming to visit Korea. This is how it will be wherever Father lies. And where
you lie all the Americans will come to visit there for the first time. In
the North Korean countryside, where one American might lie, all the American
people spread out all over the world will come and visit and look down saying,
"You are the representative for my country."
Do you think this is likely? Would you want to be the man or woman who
would lie closest to Father? Who will it be, a man or woman? Many missionaries
were sent underground to what used to be the communist countries. Each one of
them will someday have a monument in their country and in their towns. They
never lived as we have lived for the past 10 to 20 years. They have always
feared being chased . They never slept peacefully.
In your own home town, they will rename the town to have your name and they
will raise a monument in your memory. Try it. Do just like Father did. Put
down your stake and claim, "This is my tribal messiah territory."
Go there everyday and they will persecute you, even the dogs will bark and
the cats will howl at you. Even the chicken will put his droppings on your
feet. Still, you keep going there, don't be discouraged. Eventually, they
will bow down to you.
In the same way, Father went through this in America. It is difficult
the way that Father did, Father knows this. So, expect the same thing. It is
not easy, but do it. Those who are confident, not just because Father says,
but because you understand why and how to do it and will do it, then raise
both hands and pledge to Father.
Now in this time of spring, when every flower is blossoming, Father is
encouraging you. This is the seed planting time. It is time to sow the
new seed. In this time, only those who are truly confident to do this,
raise your hands. Now Father has one question for you. How much time will
you shed tears? How much time will you be beaten up by those who will not
understand you? When you do, this is a good opportunity to think about God
and True Parents, so don't mind it.
May God's blessing be upon you and your mission. Let us pray.
