REVEREND SUN MYUNG MOON
OF THE DECLARATION
OF GOD'S ETERNAL BLESSING
July 1, 1991
I just arrived from Alaska. I am making a special visit because this time
has great significance from the point of view of the dispensation.
The Meaning of July 1, 1991
The first day of July this year is not an ordinary first day of July.
From the point of view of the history of the dispensation, this is the
central year of the three-year course, which itself is a transitional period
in history. The flow of history must now change. The democratic world and
the communist world have lost their direction completely, and the religious
world has also fully lost its direction. All foundations in which men took
pride have been destroyed. This had to take place.
When the autumn arrives, the true fruit and false fruit will reveal
their true identity. False fruit naturally will enter the fire and burn,
and true fruit will be reaped. But from the perspective of the dispensation
of restoration or salvation, we are not interested in many fruits. The fruit
of realization which religions seek is not many but only one. Although there
are many religions such as Buddhism, Confucianism and so forth, the fruit
they pursue is one.
Who is the owner of that fruit? It is not some sovereign. It is not some
nation. People who rule over nations cannot reap the fruit and the many
religious groups cannot each reap this fruit and claim it as their own. The
fruit must represent some particular religious group that represents all
religious groups, which reaps the matured fruit to be received as the fruit
From this perspective, what would God desire? I will not get involved in
a long discussion of the dispensation of salvation being the dispensation of
re-creation, but if we were to say that it is the work of re-creation, then
the question is why God needs to reap the re-created fruit. Looking at it
centering on heaven, it is not because the other fruit is unworthy, but God
is seeking the fruit of the heavenly lineage, for the sake of establishing
that blood lineage. In order to establish the blood lineage, we must connect
to the tradition that can pass through the karma of love centering on God.
The History of the Restoration of
the Eldest Son's
Fallen people today have inherited the blood lineage of Satan. This is the
problem. How difficult is it to restore the people cleanly back to heaven,
once they inherited the lineage of Satan? Let me answer this way: heaven's
position is similar to a man who lost his beloved lover, and has to love
another woman and, further, to love her son, whom someone else fathered,
as his own son. The problem is how God can accept that son as his own direct
heir. Frankly, it must be miserable and tormenting. Since this acceptance could
not be done at once, God began from the individual position and passed through
a course of tribulation involving that degree of love on the family, tribal,
societal, national and world levels, persevering and overcoming everything. In
this way, He has been waiting until the time He can send the Messiah.
How does the Messiah come? He comes after the purification of the blood
lineage. As you know, because Cain and Abel were born based on the unity of
Adam and Eve [false parents], in order to cleanse their lineage, Cain and Abel
must enter the womb of True Parents and be reborn in the reversed positions
of eldest son and second son. Originally, there would not have been such
things as eldest-son "type" and second-son "type". There cannot be eldest
son and second son for the sake of distinguishing them [as relatively good
and evil]. From the viewpoint of the dispensation of restoration, simply
establishing the position of the second son as the elder son is not enough
to rectify the lineage. The two must seek and enter the source of life once
more. This is what happened through Tamar in the Old Testament era.
When you look superficially at the Bible, it is difficult to accept the
story of Esau and Jacob. Their mother deceived her husband Isaac and her
eldest son Esau to let her younger son Jacob seize the blessing. This is
unacceptable even by the ethical standards of that time. It is wicked. So the
question is, why was this content recorded in the Bible as an important event?
It is the same when you look at the life of Mary. A virgin gave birth
to a child. What was the situation of heaven which necessitated a virgin
bearing a child? Why was it necessary to send the Messiah in that manner?
In order to lay that foundation, the connection was made from Esau and Jacob
to Tamar, and restoration was to be done centering on the offspring of Hagar
and Sarah, and then substantially history was to go forward on the national
and world levels centering on Mary.
That tradition must be recognized and inherited, and the proclamation
must be made that a new Messiah will appear. Centering on the period of the
world level and the national level, the historical national standard is to
be set by tying all these events together and proclaiming the truth behind
them. Without this proclamation, the historical standard is not set.
What happened to Jesus, who came on that foundation? What would have
happened if, when Jesus came, Judaism and the nation of Israel had united
as Cain and Abel? How would Jesus have returned? Jesus had to enter in the
position of father. In order to do that on this earth, as a resurrected,
substantial being, he had to compensate for all the sacrifices made by
the second sons for the sake of reclaiming heaven's birthright given the
The Abel view of history is that all must be divided into Cain and Abel and
then into Esau and Jacob. Even after all of that, on the national level Jesus
must gather all the relationships of Abel, and as the Abel-type resurrected
substantial being and as the representative of the nation, he must rectify the
birthright of the eldest son on the national level again. Without rectifying
it, the birthright on the world level cannot be reclaimed.
What is to be done after restoring the birthright and claiming the
birthright of eldest son on the world level? After restoring the birthright
of eldest son on the world level, we can establish the right of parents
on the world level. Unless the birthright of the eldest son is reclaimed
and the course of conflict on the world level is resolved, parents cannot
establish the original lineal relationship.
The Path of Restoration Through Indemnity
After they come to the earth, the task of parents is to establish the
kingdom. The messiah, who represents Heaven, should have come to this earth
centered on the nation of Israel and Judaism, and overcome the Roman Empire. It
is not to be overcome through conflict. Everything must be invested in order
to bring about re-creation. Giving and forgetting, investing and forgetting,
and in this way forgetting time and forgetting one's life and environment in
order to invest -- this single-mindedness is the way that your love will last
in the context of God's will. If you assert yourself and promote yourself,
what you do will not remain during the course of re-creation.
For this reason, God cannot have any regard in His mind for people or
nations as He deals with the national and world foundation. He must re-create
those who become like the descendants of Adam and Eve who did not fall in the
Garden of Eden. He has continued to create Adam and Eve, to invest and forget
and then invest and forget again repeatedly during the period of individual,
family, and tribal restoration. You must understand that God has had that
attitude as the foundation for the restoration of a conditional tribe,
a conditional people, a conditional nation and a conditional world.
Even in the period of such conditions, it cannot be carried out at
our convenience in a humanistic way according to some seemingly reasonable
plan. God has not changed during the period of restoration on the individual
level, family level, tribal level, society level, national level and world
level. He has maintained the original spirit of love that always invests
from the position of emptiness. With regard to the original nature, even with
regard to evil or the realm of the devil's powers, the form of the original
love has remained unchanged.
For this reason, even Satan acknowledges before Him, "You are the only
owner of the creation." He must make that acknowledgment. How much is Satan
changeable? He changes every moment and in every place, south, north, east and
west. He drags the central headquarters to the east, to the west, to the south
and to the north. Dragging it everywhere in the environment according to his
whims, he brought a lot of confusion in the center. You must understand how
miserable this was for Heaven, which had to ignore it and persevere through
the course of re-creation centering on the standard of original nature.
Ladies and gentlemen, where can you find an instance in the world when,
while having one's beloved spouse stolen, one takes in the children of the
snatched wife or husband and takes care of them as one's own? Blessed families
especially must be clear about this. Everything is not accomplished just
because you received the blessing. The blessing is conditional.
In tune with the dawning of this age, the purpose of which is to inherit
the realm of God's heart, we must understand the toils of God, who labored
to establish the historical tradition. From this perspective, you must
criticize yourselves by the standard of that tradition: "I, so-and-so,
have been living centering on myself." You know this better than anyone else.
For the sake of the dispensation of restoration on the family level,
God has forgotten about His position and prestige in order to carry on the
battle. To accomplish the completion of restoration, He ignores His own
dignity and takes in the children of the enemy and tries to make them His
own children. You must understand that the world can never pay back the debt
that is owed to God, who did not hate the enemy but continued such actions
throughout history. If your facial features are normal and if you love
something about your neat appearance, then you especially must understand
that you stand on the foundation of the toil and accomplishments of a God
who tried to preserve such appearance as much as possible.
The path that you will travel, in the eastern, western, southern or
northern directions, is not something that will be welcomed; it will not be
as if you are in a free environment. Devils are opposing us in our path from
a hundred directions, creating an opposing environment. You must recognize
them and overcome them.
What are you trying to bring with you? You can only go with the progressive
original heart that God created; you cannot do it by a clever method or
strategy. The path of the will cannot be traveled half-heartedly. It is a
serious matter of life and death. This person who stands here, who founded
the Unification Church, has lived his whole life like that. Such a tradition
must be left behind, yet what have the blessed families done? They centered
on their own families, for the sake of their own wives and children. What are
they doing to educate them so that they can be better than others? When I look
at the blessed families who are begging me to select their own children for
the public path, I am so disheartened. From the viewpoint of the original
tradition of heaven, how can this be tolerated? There are some who fall,
and after the fall want to be blessed again. How can there be another
blessing? The blessing is like dangling one rope down the cliff. It is you
who must climb up. You must understand shame. There will come a time when
I must cleanse those who received the blessing.
You must check your transgressions of the Principle by yourself, and
repent. You cannot pass over the barrier by yourself. I also cannot freely
cross over the barrier by myself. If I bought and blessed a piece of land,
I could not sell it until now. Even when I had to, I could not sell it.
Everything must be offered to God. You have sold the properties of the church
according to your own desires, and so forth, haven't you?
By concluding the ceremony of July 1, we inaugurate the time in which
the True Parents can have complete freedom. Until now, I could not do as I
wanted. If I could have done as I wanted, why would I have suffered? Why
would I have acted so powerlessly before the world? There is a time for
everything. Without fulfilling responsibility in regards to time, one cannot
lift up one's face and act freely.
In order to cross over the pass of indemnity, in order to go to the
kingdom of Heaven, you cannot take along the things that you possess. You
must pass all things of the world over to that side. You must cross over
with new belongings. Satan is following. So, it is my desire to sell all the
properties of the Unification Church, and to give them to the nation, to the
people of the world, and to even sell all that you own to give it to them. This
is how it is with God. You must completely cross over the pass of dispensation.
I have no need of newspapers and corporations. I needed them until now
in order to provide protection against the satanic world. What I need now
is the appearance of a simple traveler who can walk freely all over the
plain of freedom. We must enter the territory of the kingdom of Heaven is
this manner. It is a solemn thing. You must understand that the breathtaking
moment is coming when we must conclude the life on earth and with a solemn
heart seek the homeland.
It has been seven years since I proclaimed that you become tribal messiahs
and do home church. I have been teaching you this for seven years. Is there
anyone who said that he would do it, who made that determination and cried
out for the sake of that action without sleeping at night? If you spent your
time meaninglessly, then you must repent. Do you think of the will as some
simple matter? I cannot tolerate that.
The Course of Restoration Until the Time
You must think about the position from which the original nature of heaven
entered this world. Centering on the original nature, before that standard,
the realm of Israel on the individual, family, tribal, racial and national
level has been established. How anxious must Jacob have been until the moment
he won over the archangel at the Ford of Jabbok and received the blessing
of Heaven? You cannot imagine how amazing the moment was when the name of
Israel was proclaimed on earth.
You are not to defile the name of Israel. Not only the name of Israel,
you are not to defile the lineage of Israel. The Israelite people did
defile the lineage, and Christianity emerged as a clan centering on Jesus,
but debased itself. Christianity, which was centered on Jesus as the king
and parent representing Israel, was defiled.
Today, centering on the Christian realm, can we win back the sovereignty
which God wants, the sovereignty with which He blessed Israel? Can we reap
the fruit which represents the nation? Where can we reap the fruit which
represents the nation? How can we do all of these things? It is through the
Messiah. We must seek the seed of the one true fruit.
Today, the western civilizations, centering on England, America and
France, are Cain. Asia is taking the Abel position, yet whom are Cain and
Abel seeking? They are seeking their parents. Heaven chased out Eve with two
sons at her bosom. The parents are to be sought out again. Cain and Abel are
seeking parents in order to receive the seed of Heaven's pure lineage. Although
Heaven has been bearing with the seed of the enemy until now, all the past
must be liquidated. Putting the whole family and nation behind, overcoming
the opposition while dodging tribulations and facing death, we must seek the
position where we can be embraced by the true husband and receive the seed
of the true son. This is the dispensation of restoration. The true seed is
none other than True Parents, True Father.
True Father must prevail over the satanic realm. Now, with the name of
True Father and True Parents, we can win over persecution on the individual,
family, tribal, society, national and world levels. Although the free world
and the communist world opposed the Unification Church and Reverend Moon,
by educating the Russian leaders in Washington, in the free world, I have
secured spiritual victory. Throughout history, they will regret the fact
that they persecuted the Reverend Moon, not realizing the dispensational
significance. How can they liberate themselves from the burden of having
mistreated the most precious guest, one who was unprecedented in history? Based
on the directives of one person, using the people and the environment, they
did everything they could to block the Unification Church from expanding
out to the world. How can they be exonerated from such evil actions?
Now the trends in the western world are changing because of Reverend
Moon. The trends created by western society have passed away and the time has
come for the trends to flow from Asia. For the proclamation of settlement
to be made before Heaven and earth, all the opposition first had to be
overcome. Then all the elements necessary for complete restoration had to
be indemnified, culminating in a victorious foundation throughout both the
democratic and communist worlds, fulfilling the highest standard. By doing
so, the settlement of the new age can happen for the first time. To do this,
I have prevailed over all persecution, starting from the individual and
moving to the family, tribe, race, nation and world. Therefore, centering
on the blessed families, I am sending everyone back to their hometowns.
Due to the fall, the world became evil, starting from the family. We must
completely restore it. All of the Cain-type people have risked their lives
to kill me by creating opposition in the family, tribe, race and world, but
I have overcome all obstacles in order to get this evil world under control.
Because I have prevailed, now I can scale the world, and then I can find
my country and surmount it, and then find my hometown and finally my whole
family. Since that time has come for me, it is the same for everyone. But all
of you are not going to my hometown. You were born in different places. How
can many of you be born at once in my hometown? Since you cannot claim this,
you have to build your foundation, following my example, to settle in your
own hometown. That is the preaching of the tribal messiah.
The Reason I Tell You To Do Family Church
Where do you settle? Settling among your brothers in your family is not
your stopping place. After you deal with your brothers in your family, you have
to find your mother. With ourselves in the position of the resurrected Jesus,
we have to put our parents in the position of Adam and Eve on the horizontal
level, centering on the realm of liberation. In the position of Jesus on the
tribal level, all the things that Father completed in the parental position
connect to the horizontal foundation. Through this, the origin of all the
hatred in the course of horizontal history, which was started by Satan,
will be completely vanquished, because the new horizontal foundation has
been completely built up.
Centering on the family, the man is the east and the woman is the west. A
line has been drawn between east and west, and there is no way to change
this with your own individual power. Where can we restore this? It is not
in the nation. It is not in the tribe. It is in the family. Adam and Eve,
centering on false love in the family, turned around 180 degrees and created
hell. Today, there is no rebirth unless the Unification Church turns families
around 180 degrees and they are reborn in the heavenly lineage as a new seed,
engrafting into the purified lineage as children sown by parents and as new
ancestors. Without that, there is no salvation at all.
Is there salvation in Christianity? There is no salvation of real life,
centering on eternal love. Therefore, Father established the way of the
hometown providence and proclaimed that everyone should be tribal messiahs
in their hometowns.
When did I start teaching this? To do that we have to make a home church
which can get the Cain and Abel problem under control. When did I tell you
about home church? It was seven years ago. Did you fulfill it or not? Didn't
I tell you that you have to do home church? Did you succeed in what you
said you would do? Here I am, standing in front of you, having walked that
path. I never tried to retreat from anything in the satanic world. God will
take care of it. Follow me and see what happens. If you do not go on that
path, God will block the way for your sons and daughters. Because I know
that horrible era will come, I have kept on going this way.
Even though I was staying in Korea, when there was news that I was being
indicted, I immediately flew back to America. Those who leave the battlefield
cannot be brave generals. If you do not become brave generals you cannot be
victors, and if you do not become victors, you will not be welcomed by the
nation. If you run around acting like hit and run liars, you cannot attain
victory. When you accomplish, risking your life centering on a life and
death situation, the nation will protect and welcome you and you will earn
the right to live.
Can you offer something to God -- make a donation to God -- and take it
back? You cannot do that, even at the cost of your life. No matter how hard
your life may be, you must live for the sake of others.
After the Center Is Fixed, There Is No Forgiveness
Today is the Declaration Day of God's Eternal Blessing. What does that
mean? The right wing and left wing came into being. This has been trouble
for God. They must come together as one. We have to march forward as we bring
right and left together as one. Until now people have been playing the right
and the left. To get this split history under control, God has been receiving
persecution here and getting hit there. Like a wife who lost her husband,
like one who is chased by enemies, God could not go the right direction to the
place where God wants to dwell, but He went here and there and left and right.
Since you joined the church, how many times have you moved left and
right? Until now you have said whatever you wanted to say and have done many
wrong actions at the expense of True Father. Now Father is praying deeply
about how to resolve the problems connected with this. God's blessed families,
whom True Parents desire, are not yet like True Parents. Blessed families
have split into left and right. Have your mind and body split, too? God
wants the family to unite centered on God. Historically, God has made so
many sacrifices to bring the dead back to life. In the process of trying to
guide history, God has suffered so much to get everything, left and right,
under control. God has patiently waited, enduring a thousand years as if it
were a day.
Although True Parents have come to earth, people have treated them like
dirt. All of you have wanted to take advantage of True Parents, and True
Parents have been abused. Today, July the first, on this very hour you
should really repent of all the things you have done wrong and you should
make a fresh, brand new beginning. Through your own will you should lament
and repent, feeling a guilty conscience and heart-broken embarrassment. You
should know that you are in the position to mourn and repent.
Father can make no retreat. Can parents retreat? You should know that
parents cannot retreat. Will all your sons and daughters inherit the position
of parents, so that your blood lineage is carried on? Centering on these
sons and daughters, nations and the world will be formed. This is a serious
task. Can you trade your parents for money? Or for dignity? This Principle
will not change even if the universe changes. Can you deny this Principle
for money? Or for dignity? For power? It cannot be denied even at the cost of
your life. Parents should die for the sake of the children and the children
should die for the sake of the parents. Only in this way can we truly carry
on the way of the universal Principle.
Father has called you through the will of God, made you true sons and
daughters, and assigned you the position of tribal messiah. What is the
messiah? Jesus wanted to take the victorious position at the cost of his
life, mobilize the enemies who were against his mother and father, and put
his enemies in Adam's position. This story [this hope and plan] is like
a dream. Unless it is accomplished, however, the horizontal standard on
which east, west, south and north can live together in the center cannot
be set; the 360 degrees will not be drawn. That is why we have to bear the
cross of love and forgive. The chance to do this does not happen all the
time. When the messiah comes, settles, and becomes the center, this will
not happen. The messiah will judge. Once the center is set and determined,
there is no forgiveness. If you have the law, you have to live by the law.
However, before the center is set, forgiveness and "re-salvation" are possible.
In this free world, the truth and the heavenly way must be centered on
True Parents and the Unification family. Are your wife, husband and children
living the principled life? When the day comes, those who did not work hard
enough will face the outcome. You might think everything is going your way,
but just wait and see. Gradually it all will get twisted.
If a parent does not fulfill the responsibility, the child will not find
the right way to go on with his life, and he or she will pay the indemnity. The
child will end up suffering. If the child suffers, so does the parent. That's
the way it is. A parent who cannot take care of the child properly cannot
It was the same in the Old Testament Age and the New Testament Age.
During the Completed Testament Age, True Parents come down to the earth in
order to comfort the suffering God. The Completed Testament Age is the era
for true love to eliminate the miserable domain of rejection.
The standard of false parenthood established by Adam and Eve, who were
not united with true love, should be corrected based on love for the way of
the child, the way of all things, and the way of God. This is an unavoidable
conclusion in our Principle view. There is no possible objection to this view.
Those who bowed down first [in the July 1 Main Ceremony] were the
representative of the free world and the representative of the communist
world. Right now is the turning point when left becomes right and everything
reverses. Because of rejection by the realm of Christianity, the realm
of communism is progressing. Now we are stepping onto that new level. If
the realm of communism does not take the path centered on Reverend Moon,
it will fall off the track by which the world will progress. It is the same
for America. However, Americans now are realizing that I possess a tremendous
influence for good.
Now the Right and Left Have Become One
Now the time has come when both America and Russia need Reverend Moon to
provide the providential direction. Recently, 200 Russian military generals
and members of the Parliament received Principle education in America. They
are taking this up with the belief and knowledge that they will be victors by
realizing the ideal world through Father's Godism and Headwing Ideology. They
know that Father's thought will overcome their former materialistic idealism
and will create the ideal world.
Looking ideologically at Communism, it is onesided, but because it contains
facts which cannot be denied by history, the communists were able to influence
and manipulate elite groups.
But now I have taken care of the conflict of left and right. On this
foundation, Reverend Moon can go back and forth from America to the communist
world, going straight where he wishes to go. Until now, we have always moved
straight forward through our opposition. Although it has been this way since
the beginning, absolutely the time in which it was even possible to wander
without direction has passed. Now we have entered a time in which we can
march straight towards our destination with the force of a hurricane and
accuracy of a bullet.
You Must Fulfill Your Responsibility After the Blessing
You must all prepare. There is only one parent. You must go through the
right process. In order to do this, a father and mother cannot go together
at the same time. The father's heart and mother's heart, and the father's
body and mother's body, must be in one line. And then, the son's heart and
the daughter's heart, the son's body and the daughter's body, must be in one
line. Two people cannot enter and exit side by side. You must overcome. You two
are just one person when you overcome division. There is no room for Satan to
come into an opening made by a second person. The father's heart and mother's
heart, father's body and mother's body: parents are one in heart and body. In
one body, the son's and daughter's hearts and bodies must be one and stand on
a straight line. Only when these four come together as one can they extend
horizontally. Once you set up vertically, then you can set up horizontally.
If you do not, you can never come here, eternally. You will be
disqualified even if you have been blessed 1,000 years. Didn't Adam and
Eve originally receive the blessing of God? God willed them to be blessed,
saying "be fruitful, multiply", but they did not realize the blessing.
Whose responsibility was it? It was not God's responsibility; it was their
own. It is the parents' responsibility to bless their children, but to
realize the blessing is the children's task.
True Parents have gone through this path. You should understand this point
clearly. How can you love your children if you as parents are not united? It
won't happen; it is against heavenly law. Your children must be able to say,
"My mother is heavenly mother, and my father is heavenly father." When they
look at you, completely united as husband and wife, they have to see you as a
physical substantiation of God. You must be the parents who can be glorified,
whom your children will not trade for anything.
But if you do all kinds of bad things, cheating on others, it is absurd
to think that your children and your family will prosper. The path we
have to walk is a one-way street, but people are walking in four different
directions. This undermines the heavenly standard.
Husband and wife bow together during pledge, right? That is horizontal
unity. But Reverend Moon is vertical. There are millions of branches,
but there is only one vertical axis. I do not carry on the providence
haphazardly. I do it to reveal heavenly law.
Is it acceptable as a blessed Unification Church member not to do pledge
as a family? The time will come when God's will is done by a child condemning
his father, saying, "Having received the blessing, why am I, your child,
like this?" There will come a time when such children would even strike their
father harshly. Because I know these things, I lead on the front line with
unblinking eyes. Since I know what to do, I must tell you before I go.
We call this the era of the second generation. Therefore, you second
generation must do better than your mother and father. The second generation
must correct the mistakes of their mothers and fathers, and be prepared to
straighten out the crooked branch and fulfill their responsibility.
In order to restore the nation, I have had to walk the path of indemnity
alone, yet joyfully, in order to indemnify the failure to offer the nation
to God. You must fulfill your portion of responsibility. I labored and was a
beggar for God's providence. If you think and work only for your own success
and that of your family, you cannot stand before True Parents as children.
I will make the True Family, the 36 Couples, 72 Couples, 120 Couples,
430 Couples, extending to the nth blessing group, stand correctly. But the
blessed families who fail will become nourishment for worms.
I'm a person who even disregarded his own parents. Not only did I leave my
brothers and sisters, I even left my own tribe. I left everything for God. Does
God have a nation? Does God have parents? I attended only God, on behalf
of the nation, parents, and elder and younger brothers and sisters. Despite
many complications, I didn't get caught up with distractions. I walked my way
imposingly. To straighten the way, I overcame the environment. Even today,
no matter what others say, I pioneer my way and walk the path. I overcame
everything, so I make this proclamation today.
Is the representation of the democratic world, communist world, and
religious world a problem? Making the democratic world and communist world into
one is a problem. They came this far with their minds and bodies separated,
and because of this separation there has been a lot of bloodshed. Religion
and government have stood face to face until now. The people in government
have been beating the people of religion. The body always strikes the mind,
right? They are each other's enemy.
Religion has sacrificed a lot and shed much blood. No one knows where
and when the blood you shed will bear fruit equal to its value. This is the
meaning of being a true parent: because of True Parents, the religious realm
and the governmental realm, as well as the democratic world and the communist
world, can be united. Why? Since all conflict began with the separation of
false parents, it must be brought into oneness by True Parents. This is
logical. These are not just words made up for appearance's sake. Because
this is reality, we are proceeding according to the truth.
This is the basis for what we are preparing in August. We will found
the Federation for World Peace and the Inter-Religious Federation for World
Peace. I'm trying to finish everything in August. That is why we are promoting
this. If we promote it, then Heaven will organize it. The foundation to
resolve everything over which the communist world and the democratic world
have been fighting is mobilized in the spirit world.
Religious leaders and politicians have been enemies until now. How much
did political figures persecute and even kill religious men? They all are
enemies, aren't they? But when you look at it more deeply, they are brothers,
and they want and need to be forgiven by love. There will be forgiveness,
and in that realm there will unfold a movement for alliance in the open and
free areas of the spirit world.
Thus we are restoring elder sonship. Territories in the spirit world are
separated because the realm of religion and the realm of secularism were
fighting over elder sonship. By restoring elder sonship, change can take
place in the spirit world and on earth. By restoring elder sonship, which was
stolen by the archangel centered on Adam, we can enter the original world,
in which the world of angels can nurture Adam to maturity. That means the
spirit world will not be able to use the human world. Up until now, how much
did it use and take advantage? Devils have been using many good men. Satan is
the one who played the trick on Adam and Eve which led to the fall. Even the
Buddhists have played this kind of game, and other religious leaders as well.
Therefore, I want to unite the brothers to create elder sonship. This
causes the followers of Satan to lose their power, putting them on a horizontal
level. The authority of True Parents and Heaven are the only things that can
rise to a higher level. Therefore, the strength people have used to exceed
their rightful authority will disappear. No matter how much they try, it will
fall. This can occur in Korea, both North and South. No single leader in North
and South Korea can accomplish everything which needs to be done. That is why
this proclamation must take place. The task must be taken care of centering
on Father. Until now, false parents have been taking care of it, but True
Parents put it together and proclaim this. Today is the day to proclaim this.
Making a Breakthrough in the Neighborhood
the Family Is the Most
Elder sonship, as I told you, is not yet concluded. Now it is
parentship. You have to understand the significance of your request to
become tribal messiahs [the application for Tribal Messiahship submitted
worldwide on July 1, 1991]. Because this is that day, you have to fulfill it
now. Even if you are the elder in your clan, or if you have been in the church
for a long time, if you don't request to become a tribal messiah, you'll
be left out. Then, for example, if you are Kim, you can't establish Kim's
tribe. Whatever your position might have been, it will be meaningless. Even if
you are the chairman of the Federation or a Regional Director, if you don't
make this request to register as a Tribal Messiah, you are disqualified. If
you act according to your own consensus, you'll be greatly ashamed for the
rest of your life.
Where did the loss of elder sonship, loss of parentship, and loss of
kingship take place? It was not out in the world. So, where can we find
these? At home. At home, we lost everything. What we have to do now is settle
as families by breaking through the rigid social structure. That is the core
of my direction. It is a battle for life, a fight which determines everything.
I did not plan to come to Korea at this time. And I did not plan to
declare the Day of God's Eternal Blessing. But we cannot do without this
ceremony. Through the declaration, we will see who is determined to fight
with their life, and who is a fake. In a serious time such as this, can one
just be a bystander? Can one worry about finding a job? Did you come to the
Unification Church in order to get a job? Did you get blessed so you could
get a job? If your wife and children block your path in doing the will,
you should be ready to leave them. I did not bless you to be people who
would do otherwise.
You should go back to your hometowns to establish family foundations and,
centering on your parents, build the foundation for restoration. Aren't your
children born within the family? Do you not make love in your home? Where do
husband and wife stand in unity based on love? It is in the tribal hall of
assembly. This is the time that has come after unimaginable difficulties. I
spent 40 years, 70 years in reality, to come to this moment. Given the
fact that we are in a time when all can go back to their families to build
foundations to restore elder sonship, the realm of parents, and the realm
of kingship, anyone who denies this reality and acts on their disbelief will
be punished. We have to cut it off from our line of people.
I will look closely at those who try to protect their blessed
families. Should I forgive them just because they are blessed families?
There may come a time when I personally will cut away those blessed families
who do not follow the will.
In the future, a wrongdoer in the tribe is to be judged, and the offender
will be cast out by the head of his or her tribe, and children will be sent
to take his or her place. Such a time will come. No third parties will be
able to meddle in the affairs of the tribe on behalf of the wrongdoer. After
having passed through that gate, the devil with his false words will run away.
Next is the restoration of original nature. You have to represent that
original nature. You should proclaim, "I am now absolute in representing
God. I have the heart to relate to the object of love, centered on love, and
I want to make that person even better than myself prior to establishing this
heartistic relationship. Thus, I am without doubt a representative of God."
Restoration of heart is next. As a representative centered on love, you
should be the owner of love. If you can be the owner through that love,
eternal life will be perpetuated. Without the owner of love, this world
cannot beget the owner of life. Love comes first. If you want to be the
owner of life, you have to be the owner of love.
Fulfill the Kingdom of Heaven
of the Family Centered
Through the True Parents, God has become the owner of love, and He wants
to be the owner of life. Satan has to be eliminated in order for that to
happen. We even want to liberate Satan. The archangel was in a position to
take his place behind mankind. He was to wait for mankind to be liberated from
the pit of hell, and to fulfill his original mission by guiding the children
of Adam and Eve to Heaven. Following the original principle of protecting
Adam and Eve from falling at any cost, he even was to seek after the people
in hell. That's how it is. Finding this path is the course of restoration.
Today, I proclaimed the victory that liberates the realm of Cain from
Satan's dominion. So there is nothing for which Satan can accuse True
Parents. This does not just happen through a wily scheme: it has to follow
the law of Principle. Because that was done, the world revolves around
the fortunes of your family. It is not a company. It is not a nation. The
nation of Korea does not shape the heavenly fortune. If this does not start
from your family, the race and the nation will disappear and will have no
relationship with Heaven.
After I gather all for whom I have fought on the worldwide level and
bestow blessing upon them, you will go back. You must land at the original
base and secure the supreme power of the family level victory, coming to
represent the birthright of Heaven. Then you will represent the parents'
right and the king's right, and when you accomplish that you do not need to
be under the control of anyone. You will know how to live, right? If there
are things of which you are not sure, you can read my collected sermons. My
sermons reveal how I have lived my life.
You are a royal family of heaven in your home. With the messiah, with
the Lord of Second Advent who is coming, each of you will play the role of
a king. What is your outlook on the world to be? There is no gap between
siblings. Your grandfathers represent everything of the past [gap in the
tape] . . . and the contents that represent the spirit world and ancestors
will become the ideology.
Your parents represent all humanity of the [present] world. Men and women,
and parents, all have to become masters at least. A master represents a
family. The representative of the family is the parent. Sons and daughters
are descendants. They are the microcosm of the past, the present and the
future, and the visual representation that illustrates the ideal of love on
the kingship level.
Therefore, if a son or a daughter-in-law maintain, centering on love, all
of what he or she advocates, then, needless to say grandfather, grandmother
and grandson all will follow them. That family welcomes assertions which are
centered on love. What kind of love? The re-creational love of God, altruistic
love, the love that is forgotten after being given and invested. Even if
a grandson makes these assertions centered on love, his grandfather and
grandmother will bow their heads in acceptance of it being right.
After establishing this moral foundation in a tribe, a nation and the
world, then this family must keep the master's love of the family heaven in
its center, and stand in the master's seat centering on love. Then that family
gains the qualification to be a master of life and to start putting forth buds.
Life starts from love. The lineage begins from the place where life and
love are united. Upon receiving God's blessing, if you govern a long life
receiving Heaven's blessing, prosperity will result. The descendant who can
expand horizontally will be born.
Unless you become a master of love and true life, the investment cannot
be made. It will gradually become reduced. You will see how that mother and
father will move on and what will happen to the son and daughter. You wait
and see whether what I say is right.
If a son and daughter come to understand, and can say, "Ah, Heaven
cannot but love our mother and father. They never stray from the path of
being patriotic day and night. The will of Heaven in all senses will be
able to protect them," then that family will prosper. It is the same with
my family. When I said to myself, "Ah, the son or daughter this time will
be born this way," they were born like that. Therefore, I cannot complain.
Standing in the Line of Tribal Restoration,
Forward with Vigor
Where are the three generations going? Is the mainstream going zigzag or
straight? This is a very serious problem.
After having put this vast and confused world in order, I have made a
ladder which mankind can climb. If you are to go up, you can climb even
hundreds of stairs. No matter how seriously you search for one, there is no
other way to go. I drastically cut off the ladder of temptation. You cannot
find a way up by any other means.
Since I proclaimed the Unification Ceremony with that in mind, I wish
you would go forward with that knowledge and with confidence. From now on,
people who oppose the Unification Church will suffer. I do not expect to be
opposed, and I should not be opposed. I want you to be active in the name
of the Unification Church as much as possible.
Jesus could not have a "Messiah Proclamation Ceremony." Centering on
Judaism and Israel, he could not do it. What does the "Messiah Proclamation"
require? He had to do it with the people of the nation, after having stepped
forward with one tribe centering on his own family. He needed the people
to make the proclamation. He needed the tribe to make the proclamation. But
did he even have a family? Reverend Moon has traversed this entire path. In
a free and democratic world in which you can proclaim the True Parents, no
matter what anyone says, Reverend Moon is a world figure. When I look at the
letters that come from people of all social standings throughout the world,
I come across many who testify to that. You should be able to glorify such a
tradition, even to your family. When the branch and bud of the teacher emerge
and come to look beautiful, you take that branch bud and plant it instead of
your own vertical column bud. Then it will become your new vertical column. You
know that I have to bless you with the True Family and weave you all together.
Today is the first of July. You must understand how important this ceremony
is. This Proclamation Ceremony is an event for which the True Parents have
wished, for which God has desired, and for which all religions and nations
have hoped. The problem will be settled from now on, based on this standard.
This moment is the same as the time when Adam had the authority to name all
things. Now, in accord with the way which I have proclaimed, standing united
with the will of God, and standing in a realm that is free from opposition,
things will come about as I say. That is the special right of the True Parents.
If you utter a word of curse out of anger with this faith, it will be
realized as a real curse. The punishment will be immediate. Therefore,
the result of the dispensation will appear to be increasingly fearful. It
will affect your families in ways that are revealed externally. Once God
takes His place on the seat of judgment, He will not be forgiving. There is
It is a shame that there appeared offspring who obstruct the heavenly
way. There is no way they can be redeemed. Can the parents beg for
the redemption of the offspring? Although the offspring can beg for
their ancestors' redemption, the parents cannot beg for the offspring's
redemption. That is how I understand it. So, the second generation must go
the righteous way. I desire that you do not go in a way which will make your
descendants ashamed of you. This problem will get increasingly serious.
I am presently praying for three important things, but I cannot disclose
them yet. Once I start laying my hands on this, the judgment that can bring
about worldwide devastation will take place. Who will take responsibility for
what results? No one can take the responsibility. In the fallen world, there
is no one who can bear the responsibility. Who is going to be responsible
after the complete destruction of the nation? I know that the True Parents
cannot bear the responsibility.
For that reason, as a sacrifice which can take responsibility in place
of that someone in the end, one must bring one's own children and set
them up. This is very serious. Until we had crossed over, all of this was
possible. The question is whether this still will take place, now that we
have completely crossed over.
Knowing that the time of seriousness is coming, starting from tomorrow,
I wish that you not turn back from the direction, perspective and intuition
you have on the path in which you are going. Up to now, there has been
persecution. However, now, there is no persecution.
When you cross the road at the utmost top in fine array, Satan will be
cut off, tried and finished. If you destroy Asherah completely, you have
to give all your valuables away and go forward seeking with bare hands.
Weren't the people cast out with bare hands?
You have to cry loudly over the wickedness of the offspring who committed
the grave sin, shedding tears with shimjung. We do not know when and where
that one day will come.
Now, even if the parents die, it will not be a failure. Since we have
finished the Proclamation Ceremony, I ask you to stride with more strength on
the advancing line, with that knowledge, handling things upon such a standard,
and having faith in that standard.
