Now we are in the position to see that the tide of the world is not
influenced by many people. It does not take many, many people to shape events;
rather, one or two decide the trends and the tide. We can see very easily that
the tide of history always has been influenced by a few people who represent
many. Only a few represent the Soviet Union, America, or Asia. They are the
ones who decide the direction of history.
The Soviet Union now is witnessing the fall of communism. The secular
humanism which is the guiding philosophy of life in America and the free
nations is failing. The fall of these previously held concepts as well as the
religious thought undergirding them lets all know that their direction holds
no guarantee of success. They have difficulty in keeping up with the times.
The Soviet Union and China are going down. The United States thinks it
is leading but the reality of America indicates weakness. There are many
problems in the family; everywhere there are difficulties. Nobody would
have believed that America would become like this. What leader really knows
how to lead his country in these times? Even the American president does
not know. Here Reverend Moon looms up and people begin to pay attention,
asking "who is he?"
We all know what has transpired. For years Father predicted the future
of the communist countries and how communism would fall. Everyday in every
year Father said what would happen in the Soviet Union, and now history has
come to pass as Father predicted. Also Father juxtaposed all the problems
existing in America and warned how America would become. Father also proved
to be very accurate in predicting what America would be. So now many people
in the world are beginning to pay attention to Father-what he says and how
he leads. Look for example at the recent ICUS. Father gathered together
scholars centering on the science conference, as well as religious leaders
from around the world. At the same time Father brought together leaders of
the world and showed them the clear way to peace in a unified world in the
future. No-one else dared do that, but Father did, and everyone believed in
Father because of what he has done in the past.
This fostered a lot of hope for the world and the future. Without one way,
you cannot have one goal. Everyone says "We want peace. Peace."
But we have to have one way to pursue the one goal which is peace. Father
made that very clear. Now everybody saw for the first time how peace can
be achieved. Father even told them what peace is. Father gave a very basic
definition of peace, yet even this flabbergasted people. Father showed the
clear way to achieve peace.
Now the Unification Church, centering upon Father, has literally come to
the apex, the highest plateau of the world. Father has clearly shown where
the world should go.
What everybody assembled there together needs is the pulling power,
the locomotive, the engine. Someone has to pull them in that one direction
of world peace, which Father laid out clearly, and that one locomotive or
pulling power should be none other than you. All the Unification Church
members must be that power.
Now the world already knows that we need a very powerful direction. America
and the free world have a Christian background. With this Christian culture,
based on the New Testament and Old Testament, America is in the position to
reorganize itself based upon these newly revealed facts. America is also in
the position to help the communist countries who have lost their ideals and
help them reorganize. All of this is now apparent. Everybody around the world
knows. But the ironic thing is that only the Unification Church members are
in the dark. They still do not know clearly that this is happening.
Using our teaching, we have solved all the difficult points in the
Bible. Therefore we are greatly empowered. The power is in our hands. We
should be able to turn people from atheism to theism. We are armed with that
degree of power. And in the future we should be able to lead the world. We
should be full of power NOW. That's the fact.
You have the arms, the weapons, but are powerless and don't know how to
apply it. You don't even know what you have. That's the problem. Maybe we
will all be dragged out by Father, first this way and then that. We have
been so-called obedient, and have followed Father. But we haven't had the
slightest idea what all this is leading to, what this really is. Now,
as we have witnessed, all Father's important dispensational moves have
been accomplished. As far as Father's role is concerned, everything is
complete. But we don't know the fact that Father has already done this. We
don't even know what he has done! That's our situation. Maybe you thought
you walked the horizontal way, but actually you have been climbing up,
and even now you should climb up more, rather than walk on the horizontal
plane. We should walk vertically!
Now when you are walking horizontally, you can see fairly well where to
go. But when you climb vertically, it takes all your might, every ounce of
energy to go forward. There is no time to look around at leisure. You have
to climb at the cost of your life.
Now are you on the same plateau as Father? Do you have no need to
climb anymore? No; we must continue to climb. We are aware of the Eight
Stages Ceremony (Pal Chung Shik), but at which stage are you? Just like an
elementary school course has a number of grades to pass through, in which
grade are you now?
Restoration by indemnity means that we are to pay the price first and then
we go one step up. Now do we really practice this way of life? To begin with,
do you believe it? You say "Yes," but are you paying the price,
indemnifying and then moving on?
Just as there are cycles, such as the time of the first coming and time
of the second coming, you have to re-indemnify and elevate the level. We
have to restore by indemnity. Does the rule apply to us also? Very much
so. Then what grade are you? At what stage of the eight stages are you
now? The individual level? Family level? Clan level? Then are you at the
perfection level of the individual? You have to measure your own position
with your own ruler. Have your mind and body achieved unity? If your mind
and body are not achieving unity, can you still go up to heaven? Of course
this is one of the fundamental teachings we already know, but then again,
some people still do not really know it.
Can an individual whose mind and body did not yet come into oneness have his
family come into unity? According to reason we must say "no". Have
American and Japanese members come into oneness? Have we achieved unification
between American and Japanese?
Thanks to Father, who has somehow, all alone created an overall harmony,
somehow everybody has survived, and sometimes are even getting along very
well. Think about it. It's really a mind-chilling phenomena. If Father was
not offering himself, then you would not be connected to any center. When
you are not connected, you become independent. You then have no base to
achieve unification, not at any level. Not even at the individual level and
certainly not at the family level, much less the true country level. That's
something we have to consider. When Father removes himself from here, can
you achieve the same results as today? Just think what it would be like if
Father were not available.
Unfortunately we cannot simply go up to heaven. "Oh Father, you are in
heaven; so am I". We cannot say that. Not everyone who goes to the same
school graduates at the same time. There are all kinds of variety, centering
on the teacher. Some really follow what the teacher teaches and practices,
making effort day and night. Others goof off all the time. There is a spectrum
including all kinds. Not everybody graduates at the same time. Some flunk
and have to do it all over again. They may take how many years? God knows!
What is your own assessment? What do you think about yourself? Do you think,
now Father can leave you all on your own and you will continue to foster and
protect the ideal, and you will promote it? Will you teach it to other people
and safeguard it without Father's help? Can you do that without Father being
close to you? Can we do it by ourselves, just as Father has been doing it
himself? That means, since the seed has been planted and now it is harvest
time, can Father now harvest? Is that grain now ready to be sown again, so
it can also bear fruit? That is the question. When you harvest grain, some
seeds are healthy, and when planted they will bear fruit. But some grains,
although having a perfect shape, have nothing inside, there is something
missing. Some grains are decaying, they are rotting. Such grains cannot
produce healthy crops. So there are all different types of grain even in
the same harvest. Do you understand the analogy?
Father is harvesting at all the different levels-individual, family, nation
and world levels. Father has established the International Religious Federation
for World Peace centering on religious people, and he has also established
the Federation for World Peace centering on political figures. The political
figures are like the body and the religious people are like the mind, even
though in the past this proper order always has been reversed. The people
in the body position have been influencing badly the people in the mind
position. In other words, the politicians have always been suppressing the
true religious activities. So Father has corrected that this time. Father
took the religious people and the political people and set them where they
should be, making unification within each side and then between them. That
is what Father did in Korea.
So now, what is the difference? The difference is great. The political
groups have always influenced people away from the position of the mind,
and this should not be so. Now that Father has set everything in the right
position, great changes can occur. The religious people, who are in the mind's
position, will take initiative and take a leading role over those who are in
the body's position, that is the politicians. Who has done that before? Who
in the religious sphere has done this? Without centering on Father, this
cannot be done. Without becoming one with Father , no-one else can do it.
These newly unified religious people will exert more influence in their
own countries over other religious people too, and then eventually exert
God-centered influence over political activities. They have just made such
a beginning. In America, for instance, centering on the President, all
the different religious factions can come into one arena and unite. They
can understand that something may be imperative for the country, and then
respond. But until now there has been no real center. Who leads them,
and to where? There is nothing that God wants more badly than the true
center. That means, God really wants some person and group in the spirit
mind's position to have subjectivity over the political people who are in
the body's position. Heavenly Father wants to see that very much.
It is nothing short of amazing that people representing science, politics
and religion all gathered together. You know what their relationship has
been like until now. No one of them could follow or respect the other. They
were all downright enemies. Religion and science have been enemies to a
great extent. Politics and religion have also been enemies, and politics
and true science also have been enemies to some extent. Now these three will
get together and embrace and welcome Reverend Moon without criticizing each
other. Naturally, and most importantly, none of them will criticize Reverend
Moon. This is an amazing historical event.
In history nothing like this has happened. But to Father, this is not
amazing at all. It is something that should be happening everyday in your own
city, in your own village, in your own arena. Everywhere you go, you should
reproduce that. What is odd is that we have not seen this happen in the past.
The practical question is, when you go back to your own hometown and find
scientists, politicians and religious people, can you play the role which
Father has been playing all his life? Can you harmonize them? Can you make
them take you as their center?
There are a lot of trees in America and a lot in Korea. They are not
different trees, but similar. For example, the poplar tree in America and
Korea is the same. If you engraft American poplar into a Korean or Japanese
poplar, it will become even stronger. By today's method of cloning, even
an individual cell can be cloned. Father gave the poplar as an example. But
what about a Reverend Moon tree? A Reverend Moon tree is big and strong and
nice. Did we become its branch or clone so that everywhere we go we can be
recognized as a small Reverend Moon tree? What is your answer? "Yes,
I am a small Reverend Moon tree"?
What does a Reverend Moon tree look like? How can we define a Reverend
Moon tree? First of all, he is a man God loves. That one man that God loves so
dearly does not just sit down and receive love from God. In fact he tries to
love God in ever greater degrees. He is that kind of tree. No matter how many
times he finds himself on the verge of dying, he doesn't die. He lives again
and always tries to do even more to fulfill God's will. What about you? If
you experience a severe setback, do you just simply die, or do you never die,
because you are a Reverend Moon tree? To achieve God's goal in this world,
just as Father we must give up our lives, our wives, give up our children
and even our nations to go after God's will. Are we ready to do this? Think
about it deeply. Don't just say "Yes Father, Yes Father". It's not
that easy. You know that. Think deeply, and then say "Yes Father."
It's life and death. Will you still say yes when you go through greatest
torture in prison? You can only imagine how painful it is if they use pliers
to pull the nails off your fingers. Can you still say "Yes Father"
then? Then they cut your finger and they do all kinds of terrible things to
you. That's a very serious situation. What if you go through that? How many
times are you prepared to die for the sake of the will of God?
Even Jesus had to ask God "why are you giving me up?". What
about you? Are you going to be better than Jesus? He then said, "Not
as I will but as You will." He acknowledged that there was God's will
and Jesus' will and they were not necessarily the same. "I don't want
to die. I want to achieve my will for God." That was Jesus' will. But
to let him die was God's will. Jesus said, "Don't do as I will but do
as You will." Are we going to repeat that? How many times?
All of us have lived "as I will," but now we have to die and
be resurrected. We have to be born again. When the American government
very unjustly indicted Father, Father didn't have to come back to this
country. If Father hadn't come, that would have been the end. America would
have been happy and nobody would have questioned Father. They could not
have forced Father to come back so they could punish him since there was no
treaty between Korea and America. So even if he had committed many crimes,
there was no way they could have forced him back. Father decided on his own
to come back. Why? He saw that it was God's will. He saw that there was a
way that America could be saved as a result of Father going to prison. So
Father said, "Gladly I will go God's way. So he came back to America
and went straight to prison. That opened up an avenue, a way for America to
repent. If Father didn't come back and go to prison then America would have
no way to repent. But as it is Father came back and sacrificed himself,
like dying on the cross. Now there is a way open for America to repent,
and when God accepts their repentance then America will live again.
We have seen the grand rule. God sacrifices His own loving sons and
daughters, putting them to death. As a result of that He saves a greater
number of people. God has been doing that ever since history began and He
did it to Father. This is God's formula. He does that to all his loving
sons and daughters. Why? Because of the fall. Man inadvertently received
Satan's lineage, his blood, his life, his love. Man has no choice. To be
in God's lineage, man must give up all these things. He must go through and
beyond the difficulty of giving them up. It is like dying. You must first
die before God can lift you up. That means we must go beyond the realm of
this world, of Satan's love and Satan's life. We must go over Satan's world
and be free of these three powers-Satan's love, life and lineage. This is
then the starting point for the heavenly site, a foundation on the earth.
If someone says, "Are you going to save your life or give up the
connection to Satan?" you must be able to say, "I will give up my
life and give up Satan's connection." You must even deny your life. All
of us want to be saved, right? But what do you mean? You are already alive,
are you not? You are breathing, walking, speaking, you are very healthy
and alive, so why do you need to be saved? You are alive but dead. So that
means that you have to go out of the realm in which you are and move into a
new realm of God. We want to be saved in that way. In order to start love,
life and to start everything godly, no matter how difficult it is, what we
need is to live or die for it.
So the Bible says that unless you receive the Holy Ghost, the Holy Spirit,
you cannot be saved, you cannot live. When you receive the Holy Ghost, when
you receive Mother, then you will come to a new realm. Do you follow? The Holy
Ghost is what kind of God? It is the feminine God. What about Jesus? What
gender of God is he? He is the husband God, the world God. Since Jesus died
without fulfilling all things that he was to accomplish, the relationship
became vertical between husband and wife instead of horizontal. The husband
and wife relationship should be horizontal, but in Jesus' case Jesus went
to heaven and the Holy Spirit continued to work on earth. Satan became
rampant in between. Now in true love, these two must come into unity. So
we become as ones conceived in the Holy Spirit (in the Mother's position),
conceived a new and thus "reborn." And Jesus' male element is also
part of the process of my rebirth. We are not born by the mother alone. The
father's part should be in the mother before I can be born. That means
that the Holy Ghost, representing the mind side, and you, on the body side,
become one and receive the father's seed. Then Jesus can come upon us and we
can receive love from the father's side before conception takes place. That
is the meaning of being born again.
Whether you are a man or a woman, the Holy Ghost will come in the mind's
position to each of you in the body position. You must become one with the
Holy Ghost, and then Jesus will come down and inject love so the new person
can be born.
That is exactly how the fall took place between Eve and the Archangel. It
is the same pattern, only this time it is God and Jesus coming down, not the
Archangel. That is the meaning of being born again in Christianity. But that
reversal is the spiritual reversal. Now in substance we have to be born again.
That comes at the time of the Second Advent. Mind and body will become one
for the first time and will receive the inheritance from our Father.
This has been demonstrated often, in the early days of our church and
even now. Whether we are man or woman, it doesn't matter, we really miss
Father so much, so much that we even cry-in complete oneness.
There should be a role to be played with the passion of an unmarried
Adam-person going into the mother's womb to be born again. It is relatively
simple to explain what takes place. But it can be very difficult to actually
go through this rebirth process. We haven't taken this serious step have
we? You may hear what Father is saying, but what is Father really saying?
Simply, we are born again spiritually through Jesus and the Holy Ghost. That
gives us a very important condition-that we are reborn through Father's
body. It is important that we have this horizontal connection centering upon
the body, with Father. Otherwise we cannot complete the process of being
born again, and we cannot fulfill the course of restoration. We know that
we have to be restored, which means to be born again.
Those spirit men who have never been born again come down and connect with
an actual physical body to experience this born-again process. Then they can
be born again through the body. When that happens, then the spirit man is
actually born again and his mind and body are both perfected, and salvation
is now complete. If you really love Jesus, when Jesus feels pain, you will
feel pain too because you are part of him. You have to be that close. We
are part of him because we are his children. The same thing occurs with
Father. When Father feels so much pain, we have to feel the same pain or
else we are not one with Father.
In the same way as you imagine you are a fetus in the mother's womb, you
are the result of father's sperm, so we should feel the father's pain also
because we are connected. But are we like that? If we are not, it means we
still have a distance to go before we are restored. We must close that gap
now while we have a body. What happens if we die now? Let's say a person
has this much of a gap, this gap could continue on for hundreds of thousands
of years in the spirit world. How about a larger gap? It would continue on
longer. Now while we have a body we must become one. Then we probably won't
have to wait thousands of years.
As much as Father taught us, it somehow has been eluding us. We did not
concretely learn all that he taught. We still tend to think, "Somehow I
will go to heaven." We have to be more exact, correct? We have to really
know what it takes. It's a science. You can discern the person who is very
exacting from one who is not. How do you tell? Their mind and body do not
fight each other so much. Such a person whose mind and body do not fight,
we say, "he's one with Father".
When mind and body are born again through true love, the person is
free. This is not rhetorical or abstract; this is reality. Here is a man
who used to love drinking very much, but now his mind and body became one,
through true love. So he's well connected to Father. Then all of a sudden he
realizes he really hates to drink wine. That kind of phenomenon always happens.
Cigarettes, homosexuality, all these lose their allure. For instance,
what happens if our brother or sister who joined the Unification Church
continued to have homosexual experiences on and on. They would go directly
to hell; there is no way they would return to heaven. We must understand
this clearly. Then how can he be saved? When he becomes moved by the Holy
Spirit, then somehow he will not desire to do that anymore. Re-birth through
true love occurs. No matter how much he liked smoking, drinking or even
homosexual activities, the mind now says, "No this is no good."
Then that's it. It's the end of the dispute. He simply doesn't like it. He
hates it. You will become like that. You must become like that.
What if you tried and tried to make that happen? Then you have to try
harder. You have to cry and cling to God to make it happen. This is up
to you. You have to pray. You have to deny your body, even to extremes,
and you have to ask God to make your mind and body become one. Prayer is
essential. Don't underestimate the power of prayer. Pray. Ask God, ask God. Beg
God. Forget other things. All you want to do is experience Parents' love,
inherit Parents' love. That's all you should want to do. Forget everything
else. Seek Parents' love, Parents' life, Parents' lineage.
Isn't it the Principle view that since we started at one point, then we
need to return to that point, change course and then go on? So we need to
continue to deny ourselves until we reach that zero point again. Then new
life can begin. At that zero point a new world, new life, new being can
begin. So we need spiritual parents and physical parents. Then we need to
connect these two into one. How difficult is Father's mission-to connect
and unify those two worlds and make a victorious atmosphere in the spiritual
world. To become the owner of this physical world, most important is Mother.
The original point is the one point of Adam's couple. We went the fallen
way but we now have to come back to that original point, losing all of Satan's
world-everything: nation, tribe, parents, brothers and sisters, even the
self. We have to lose all this and reconnect with Father's new seed in the
mother's womb, and bear a new child. From there a new world will start. This
is the fallen people's formula course-the way to go back to the original point.
This is according to Principle. This is not just Father's idea!
When you think about it, when were you born again? Can you
remember? Otherwise you cannot claim you have new life, a new world centering
on true love.
To be reborn is not easy. It is not simple. Heaven knew and Satan knew,
but no human being knew. But now many human beings know for the first time
in history. Father pioneered to road of knowing and applying this. As a
result of that we can accomplish this now. So the Satanic world must depart
now. It must lose ground, step by step. The Satanic world began through a
mother's womb didn't it? So the new, sinless, born-again world should begin
in a mother's womb.
So here is a new Adam. We must become one with Adam and be born again
out of this new Adam. Therefore it is an absolute rule that we must love
Father more than anybody else. That's why Jesus said, "You must love
me more than anybody else, otherwise you will not go to heaven-you will not
be worthy of me".
This is not simply to be done on a joyous or comfortable occasion. Each
must bear his own cross, paying his own indemnity to become like Father. We
wish it would happen very simply, automatically, but it doesn't happen like
that. We have to indemnify, we have to pay our indemnity to become like Father.
So this is very much a spiritual process, isn't it? To become completely
one with Father and to love him and cry for him means we have to cry so
much because we miss him so much. That is spiritual. Then after that we are
born again, and we have to go through the horizontal path where we have to
fight against the world, accomplishing restoration through indemnity. So we
have two wars to fight: the spiritual and the horizontal. Who among you are
working very hard towards accomplishing that goal now? Yes, each of you. We
are all supposedly very busy doing that. Of course we cannot do it simply
by ourselves. Only parents can give us rebirth.
Father is working very hard to make this process as easy as possible
for us. He is chasing Satan far away, as far away as possible. Therefore we
all don't have to fight Satan so much, because Father already has defeated
him. Isn't this true? Isn't that what Father has done from the individual
to the country and world level. At the country level, people do not oppose
us so much because they understand what Reverend Moon did for America.
Father has established a foundation at every level and Satan has retreated.
So both vertically and horizontally Satan is being pushed back and as a
result of that, we now enjoy a very peaceful atmosphere. Now we have come
into the time when Father can make the Federation for World Peace. If we have
not done anything before, but now we take it very seriously and carry it
out, then we can become completely one with Father and he can re-create us
any way he wants us to be. We should not be plus in front of Father because
Father is plus, and two plusses repel each other. So we have to be minus. If
we deny ourselves, believe in Father and obey Father, then we become one
with Father, and Father can do many, many things through us. He will say,
"You go." And even though you know you will die if you go, don't say
"Oh no, I'll die if I go." Can we say that? If we really think we
will die there and we say, "Father, do you really want me to go?"
and he says, "Yes!" then we still go. The chances are that you
won't die if God is guiding us. But that's God's problem. We should be ready
to die, correct? Now all of us here are special people, special brothers
and sisters here, but what is our qualification? Satan would like to see
that each individual would have passed the life and death border a long time
ago. We should always be ready to die.
But why does Father always nag me and chase me into a very uncomfortable
position? You are like a cup with dirty water in it. So what do you want
to do? Father would like to throw that water away. Then Father would be
free to refill you with real water and you will be a different person. Do
you understand? You may not see yourself so clearly, thinking that water
is alright since you had that water all your life. But inside, God cannot
tolerate many of those dirty family elements. So Father wants to first throw
that out so he can re-fill you. That is a correct analogy.
Now as you look back over your Unification Church life, maybe you joined
fifteen years ago. You suffered so much. Father knows that. Father now says,
"Let's suffer again, all over again". You respond, "Oh Father,
should we do that all over again?" But we had best do that again. We
want to empty ourselves once and for all and then Father can work much more
easily with us after that.
Blessed couples may say, "Oh Father, you blessed us, so I'm not
going to depart with some of these things. I'm going to hold onto them for
ever and ever.' Are you going to say that, or if the task is big enough, you
will go at any cost, forgetting your husband, your wife, your children. They
may starve, you don't know, but if Father says "We must go,"
then we go. A lot of you went through that course. Once you have done that
then we don't have to suffer in the Satanic world again, from that point on.
Our heavenly life begins from there.
If Christianity and America had supported Father, Father would not have
had to go through all this. Father's family took all this persecution for
forty years. All you blessed couples are now the growth stage of this process
remaining. You have to follow Father's path of the cross.
This is why Father is chasing the blessed couples away to the couple's
home. Once Jesus was crucified there was no way for us to evade going that
same course. We may not be crucified literally, but we have to be crucified
symbolically. So if Father has gone the same course, there is no way for us
to evade going that same course as Father. We must go. Even though it may
be only a short time. When Father went through that difficult course it was
under terrible persecution, much more difficult than now. Now there is no
persecution, so it is much easier for us. But still we must go this way. There
is no way we can avoid that. If you go now, there is always somebody who
can take care of your children. But when Father started this course this
was not so. Father had to fight every inch of the way, in every area. Now,
nobody will persecute your children when you leave them behind.
Because of what Father did in Korea recently, the Korean members will suffer
perhaps more than any other members, but the Principle stays the same. Separate
from your wife and your children, and go. Now they are gone. What about the
organization, HSA? It doesn't matter. One individual will go and recover
the clan and then come back with the victory; that is tribal messiahship.
What we have done on the individual level and the family level, now we are
doing on the clan level which is our perfection level. Formation, growth
and perfection, that is our formula course. That is our organization,
too. Wherever we go there is always three tiers, three levels of
relationship. Now we are working at the clan messianic mission.
Now the time has come for each individual, by going through this course,
ultimately to go back to the original home, back to a completely new
world. There will be no persecution there. So Father has restored himself
three great rights: elder sonship, parentship and kingship. By doing that he
pushed back the Satanic realm. He did this from the original Adam's position,
the position Jesus would have been in if he had fulfilled. That of course is
the position of the second coming, the original Adam's position. The third
Adam, the completed Adam, the Second Coming, all these are synonymous.
Adam was the elder son wasn't he? But he lost that position didn't he? Also,
Adam was to be True Parents originally wasn't he? He was also king, right? But
he is now none of these.
On the 28th of July we all got together and heard the pronouncement of
the Royal Family of True Love. The royal family was formed. The course that
is taken from now is that of true love. Father individually restored the
individual, the family, the clan, nation and world, and when he returns
there is no opposition. Peacefully he can return. When he returns, we
all can follow him and return too. The original Adam's course is the
vertical line. This time he is making the historical condition based on
true love. This same straight line will connect all families, centering on
true love. The individual portion is small compared to heaven's portion. The
tribal portion is bigger than the individual, the national is bigger still,
and world bigger still. But all will have one center of true love, one main
direction. The world direction is connected with the individual direction by
the true love line. This is the love direction. Satan cannot follow this
way because we will be going in the direction opposite to Satan's way-180
degrees different to Satan's direction. From here, from Adam's family, a new
age starts. From Adam's family starts a new tribe and this ultimately will
connect to the world. The foundation of heaven's world is the way opposite
to Satan's. Heaven's side will gradually collect all humankind through true
love, by people understanding the true way.
So now all the communist world and the free world welcome Reverend
Moon. They want to follow absolutely. So that means they have to cut from
everything that is not God's ideology and concept. So if we multiply
individual, family and clan restoration then the whole world will come
to exist within God's world automatically. Adam was supposed to establish
a nation. That's what his purpose was. He was not simply meant to remain on
the family or clan level at all, but rather to establish a country. Now we,
by accomplishing clan-level restoration, will automatically be able to make
a country through the root. Ultimately this big tree with a big trunk will
be connected by engrafting. The tribe forms the branches which is connected
to the trunk and root.
You are in the original Adam's position, given to you by Father, and he
has said "go." So you are to go back to your hometown to become a
tribal messiah. By doing that you can resurrect your own physical father and
mother, and they too can stand in the position of restored Adam and restored
Eve. You are in the position of Jesus' family whereas Father is the True
Parents' family and through them everyone is automatically connected to the
same realm horizontally. By doing that you will eventually get rid of the
position of fallen Adam and Eve. You will also rid yourself of the failed
Jesus position. In other words, you will establish a successful position
and be connected directly to Father's position. By doing that the restored
world will automatically come to exist. The first, second and third Adam
will horizontally come into one, come into unity. There is now no spiritual
atmosphere that will work against this course. So we can recreate the new
Adam position, the new Jesus or second Adam position, and completely connect
them into one. The sons of the first Adam (fallen people), and the sons of
the second Adam (the Christians, restored half way) all become one with the
third Adam's children's position.
We can make this connection through the tribal messiah foundation.
You have your hometown. Why? Your parents take the fallen position and
we take the restored position. Jesus made a nation and we can automatically
connect with the world through the engrafting process.
What it amounts to is that all you have to do is connect that branch
of yours into the main trunk. Then all of your clan will come alive. As a
condition Father has already pieced all these together. So as soon as we
connect ourselves then all things will come alive. That is the strategy that
works. Father's tree has all the conditions within it. We connect with it,
from the root, by simply doing what Father is asking now. It will work. So
all parts of the world will be directly connected with our native land,
which happens to be your hometown, your native land, which has nothing to
do with the fall anymore.
Today, your hometown is still under Satan's dominion. But once you go
there and achieve this, then your hometown will be a restored hometown. You
don't have to do anything special because of what Father has already done. So
by connecting through you, with the true root, this will be achieved.
The parents' concept consists of three parts: the fallen parents, the
second or Jesus' position parents, and the perfected parents. We are at
the perfection stage of the parents' concept now, so we can fulfill all
The second position or middle position is always important because it is
the connecting point. As a result of that, Adam now resurrects, and Jesus can
resurrect, and your original self can also resurrect. Do you follow? That
is the sketch, the outline of why the tribal messiah is necessary and why
What is the actual meaning of the tribal messiah? First it is to let your
own physical parents stand in an unfallen position, a restored position. The
first thing you do is to put them in that position. Some of them are in
the spirit world, but still they are under Satanic dominion, right? Jesus'
disciples who are up in the spirit world, and who are on earth, are still
not exactly in the heavenly domain. They are under Satanic dominion to
some extent. Perfected Adam is now working spiritually and physically.
He has created the victorious foundation to connect both ways-spiritually
and physically. So you too can connect with what Father has achieved-the
restored Adam position. And so all can be connected with this. When that is
realized then the full spirit world can come down and resurrect. So we must
do the tribal messiah work so we can connect with the spirit world. We have a
lot of ancestry in the spirit world. To connect these three in the course of
formation, growth and perfection, you must carry out tribal messiahship. By
doing that, each level will be connected to the true root. By doing this
the whole resurrection of spirit men becomes reality. This is what Father
has been looking to accomplish.
The second coming will be the perfected Adam, and the position of Jesus
and the first Adam will be in it, so your tribal messiah work will directly
connect all your ancestry to the perfected Adam position. Jesus is a branch,
Adam is a branch, there is Father's own original branch-all these will be
combined in one concept of perfected Adam. The environment and domain of Adam
was small, Jesus' was a little larger, and so on, but each is still connected
to the mission of Adam, and Jesus. The core of each centers on Adam's family,
Jesus family and third Adam's family. The restorational value is connected
with the numbers of people who center on each of these three. But ultimately
all are connected. The end result is that we will have the same value as
everything perfectly restored. Father wants all of us to reach this.
One thing is for sure, even though you don't understand exactly what
Father is saying because of the problem of translation, you must restore
the fallen clan. You must be the clan messiah. You understand that part
don't you? Why? So that you can make your own native land, your hometown,
a heavenly hometown. And so you can make your own parents not the enemies as
they are now, but on your side so you have your own foundation to stand on
too. Then your whole clan will be blessed. The hometown that they inhabit
will become a heavenly hometown. The hometown where Father was originally
born must be restored also, otherwise it cannot be Father's hometown. The
same applies to him. Just as Father must have his own hometown, you also
must your own hometown. This is your mission-to restore it. You must feel
God's heart by returning to your hometown and working through it. Otherwise
you cannot live in heaven.
We have to restore Canaan. Because there is no persecution, no opposition,
Canaan can be directly connected through your own hometown. The providential
time makes this possible. So going back to your hometown, all you have to do
is enroll in the Israelites' position, as belonging to one of the tribes. A
tribe's ultimate goal is to establish a nation. That is the tribe's whole
We must understand that when the Israelites went into Canaan, almost
four thousand years ago, they were more like beggars. They had been out
in the wilderness for forty years. Compared to the Canaanites, they were
beggars. The Canaanite seven tribes were rich, they had cattle, homesteads,
pretty daughters and good sons, everything. Now the Israelites were in the
position to digest the Canaanites. But they were digested by the Canaanites
and Jesus had to suffer so much as a consequence. We are to set a Godly
tradition. We are not to go back to Satan's tradition.
There are the seven tribes of the Canaanites, but we are in the elder
son's position. That is the difference. The Satanic world will automatically
stand in the younger brother's position. If you use your good subjectivity,
the good inner sovereignty of yours, then they will listen to you. Now the
big difference between you and your brothers to be restored is that they
are individualistic but you are holistic. So they are about to be digested
by you. You bag is bigger than their bag.
I wrote down these directions in my memos and gave them to the Korean
and Japanese members. Now I will give them to you, and it will be all over
the world. Follow exactly what I tell you.
"The Conference Memos and Direction given
Father left Korea the 29th of August, 1991."
What if a lot of the Egyptian people had followed the Israelites? Then the
Israelites and the Canaanites would have established a subject-object
relationship-an ideal situation. They would have realized a unified world
right there. Subject and object relationship is the key-making subject and
object into one and spreading that relationship all over the world. At
that time they could have made a unified world. Do you understand? No
fighting there. Egypt itself would have become the God-centered country.
Compare this to the America situation. Reverend Moon and the Unification
Church are subject to the American nation. The American government and the
established churches have a reversed relationship. Making into one here
could build up into the accomplishment stage.
- The Return to Canaan, Restoration of Canaan, and its Dispensational
Tribal Messiahship, which we must take very seriously, would not have
been necessary if Christianity and America had received Father 46 years
ago. Within seven years, what you are about to accomplish would have been
accomplished-by 1950. It was extended, postponed forty years. The date has
been pushed back to 1992 as the date by which this has to be accomplished,
instead of 1950.
- What was the purpose of the course in the wilderness? The purpose of
the course in the wilderness was to separate from Satan, to separate Satan's
world from God's world. To separate the two, it took Korean history 4000
years. We had to restore 4,300 years in 43 years.
- Now that we have gone through the wilderness course, we have to
return to our home town and restore our ancestry.
- Restore Elder-Sonship.
- Restore Parentship.
- Make three great victorious conditions: your
grandfather, your father and your brothers should serve you. You are Abel
and Cain must be subjugated.
- Original Ideal Family
- Heavenly Father
- Earthly King
That means three generations. The Heavenly King position is the heavenly
position. The King on Earth position is the Father and Mother's position,
and the prince is the children's position. These three positions represent
different levels of kingship. The first represents the past (grandfather),
the second represents the present and the third one, the prince, represents
- Husband and wife living in the True Love Palace.
Parents and Children in True Love.
- Establishing a new tradition that is 180-degrees different from the
- Complete absorption and digestion of the Cain traditions, the
- Establishing a nation: bringing everything into the heavenly position,
the environment of heaven. In there our standard has to be very high. What
standard? The standard of filial sons and daughters has to be very high,
the standard of royal citizens toward the king has to be high, the standard
of sainthood should be high (higher than the historical standard), and the
standard of the holy man should be high. You see even the world has sons and
daughters of filial piety. But our standard for filial sons and daughters
should be higher, our standards of sainthood and holiness has to be higher.
Organization based on the Divine Principle view:
- Neighborhood (tong-ban), precinct (li), town (myun)
- County, state, central government
- State, central
government, capital congress
- Central government, congress, world
Congress, world, cosmos
- King's Palace, God
This is the organizational plan based on the Divine Principle. Everything
is comprised of three. The eye represents God, the nose, Adam and Eve, mouth,
all things. The eyes have three parts-white, iris, and pupil. The ear also
has three parts. Everything is created in three stages.
- The Contents of the Organization.
If you so wish you can team
up as four. Working alone is sometimes difficult. So four people can team up
and form a group and work together, and have an advantage. A tribal messiah
group can work together, and take turns. Do you know what Father means?
Instead of doing everything individually, four people get together and you
can take turns staying in this home town and then the next -four different
home towns. Also, you can form a twelve-person group. That doesn't mean
Father is saying work with twelve people. No, work alone; but, if you find
it more advantageous, four people get together and work. If still you cannot
do that then you can form a twelve person group. That is an alternative. If
you are a really good organizer you can organize up to a 120-person group.
- Tribal Messiahs accomplish 120 families and 360 families and if you
multiply that by two, 720 families. Those are your goals. Once you get
their agreement to be trained, you can do almost anything to teach them.
- In the particular situation of Korea, many are from North Korea, so
obviously they cannot go to their hometown right now. So in Korea Father
allowed them to select a second hometown and establish that, which will
immediately be connected to their original hometown when the north/south
border is abolished. So Father is recognizing them as second son, and
when the first son is restored, of course then you will have a first and
second son. That pertains more to Korea, but in America also you can do
the same thing. Even though you have your own original hometown you can
select, just like in Korea, a second hometown. That means that when they
pay enough attention to Unification Church and its teaching and its essence,
its True Parentship, then that second town can follow just as easily as your
hometown. Our main task is to teach them Divine Principle.
- Educational training
- Itinerary workers. IWs conduct the
revival meetings and so forth. Over one hundred American members just went
to the Soviet Union and did things similar to which Father is now describing
there. We are about to do these things in our own hometown.
- Unification comes not from the country but from the individual and
family levels. It works its way up, not works its way down: from individual
to family, clan, nation and world. Use public meeting places and churches as
the training sites, teaching rooms. In America we have a lot of churches so
we have lots of teaching areas. In Korea you can live in churches temporarily.
Actually you can come and live there physically, but in America it's a little
different situation. That means use the Christian churches like your brother's
home. Maybe we can change the pattern, and people can stay overnight.
- We will train and arm people with thought that is superior to the world's
level. That means, in the world they have a value system which is pretty
weak; but ours should be stronger. Our thought and organization should be
stronger than our counterparts in the satanic world. By doing that we can
win over the social situation (of course this is very much with the Korean
situation in mind, but it applies almost equally to America). We organize an
effective team and organization and teaching, centering on good people.
- The Mission of the Tribal Messiah: Three Great Missions
Owner, or master
Father often uses these
concepts, but also these are basic concepts for us to understand and use.
- Owner=Kingship position; Country level Teacher=School Teacher position
- The mission of the tribal messiah is our inevitable
mission-our destiny. Messiahship is not something we can give up or leave
half-done, it is something that we have to accomplish. Jesus came as
a Messiah and if he didn't completely succeed he has to try again until
he succeeds. So where is Jesus now? He is in Paradise, waiting to attain
heaven. So once we undertake the tribal messiah mission we cannot quit as
we wish; there is no quitting.
- The Tradition of God and True Parents.
- To live for the sake
- Invest and invest again and forget the fact that you invested,
just like God and just like our Parents. Forget that you invested, don't
remember it. Get it?
- Pray for perfection and dedicate a lot of heart
for the sake of perfection. These three points are self-explanatory. These
are Father's, Parents', God's tradition.
- Steps of Recreation.
- Creation of the Environment
What did God create first in the beginning of the world? The environment. So
we first have to create the environment because we are the Messiah himself-the
representative of God. The Messiah represents God's creative power. So it
is a formula. First we have to create the environment.
- Subject and Object
When there is an environment, there is subject and object, otherwise
there won't be any environment. The environment always has subject and
objects. Even the mineral kingdom has plus and minus parts and the vegetable
kingdom has stamen and pistil (same thing), and insect kingdom and man have
male and female beings. Why do they exist in subject and object form? For the
purpose of love, which is the whole purpose of God's creation, period-love!
If you want find something mystical, the very fact that everything comes in
these two beings, male and female, it's the most fantastic, it's mystical! How
anybody could do that is mystifying. Centering on what? When you understand
love, it's not mystifying at all. Your faces are telling me, what is so
mystifying about it? But think about it-Love! Then it is a mystery!
All of us have really suffered wanting to know what is our purpose in
life. Everyone said, what is man's purpose? No one ever said, "What
is man's purpose and what is woman's purpose?" Father is the great
discoverer of that. Father said, "Not just man but man and woman."
Why did man and woman come into existence? Because God had love in mind, that
is why mankind came into existence. So man and woman become one centering
on love. More specifically, physically, centering on what? The sexual
organs. True? These are love's essential organs. There the unification between
man and woman becomes realized. There is nothing obscene about it. It is not
the mouth-to-mouth kiss that is the ultimate purpose of man and woman, nor to
have a strong handshake. No one can oppose and say "I was not born for
the sake of love." No one can say that. They say, "Yes, I am."
So before man and woman came into being, the concept of love was already
there. After that concept was established then God made man and woman; that
is the reality. This is a very serious point. It's serious enough to divide
the whole philosophical world into two opposing camps. So no one can deny,
even though you are an ardent student, that man was born for the sake of love
and woman was born for the sake of love. Why, then, do we have to marry? We
get married so that we can become one centering on love. So becoming one is
rather conceptual. Actually, becoming one through sexual organs, that kind
of oneness, that is the real original palace of love, not only of love but
of life and lineage too. So it is the most important area, the most valuable
place in the human's life; no place is more valuable than that. The fall
was the destruction of this great palace of these three things. What does
the fall mean? It destroyed the three greatest palaces. This should have
been established centering on God, but the fall established it centering on
Satan. That is the difference.
When God created woman did He create her with just woman in mind,
independent from man or anything else, just a woman? Before God started
creating woman, He already had a clear idea what man was like. Then he started
creating woman. So, what is the purpose of woman's life? Woman's purpose
in life is never for her own sake, as many people may think now. Woman was
created for the sake of man. The starting point is that woman was created
for man. So "me" has no place in God's creation; "woman"
has nothing to do with woman, but woman everything to do with man, and vice
versa, "man" has nothing to do with man. So in God's wisdom He
didn't give man's most precious thing to man. In other words, God gave it
to woman: "You hold it for him." So the sexual organ that women
have, does it belong to her, or is the original owner of that part someone
else? Who? Her husband, right? And the sexual part that her husband has, who is
the real owner? The husband? NO! That is the wife's, the woman's. So this is
a very great point here. You are holding something very valuable for someone
else. But you thought all this time that it was yours, so you misused it in
many ways. That very satanic attitude came about, "Oh, this is mine,
I can use it in any way I please." That is a very satanic tradition,
whereas the Godly tradition is the other way around: "That is not mine,
even though it belongs to me, it is not mine."
Why is there no peace today? Because everybody thinks that he exists for
himself. If he knew that he exists for the sake of others he would never
fight, and if man and woman, only knew that they came into being for the
sake of love they would never fight. So whatever you have, centering on
love, it is not yours, it is simply not yours. Centering on love, I am
not the master of myself; my master is somewhere else: my husband or my
wife. Isn't that true? What a striking concept this is. There is nothing
over which either man or woman can claim, "It is mine." Nothing,
not even my little finger. Not anything. It belongs to love.
Centering on love, everything you have belongs to your spouse. Women came
into being for the sake of who? Man. And man's love didn't come into existence
for the man. Man's love partner is woman. Can you say "My love partner
is me"? Nothing belongs to man. So how can you make a mistake and look
at a woman other than your wife, and go wrong with her? You cannot; even
if they pay you millions of dollars you can't. Your organ is not yours; it
is your partner's! True? If you misuse it you are like a thief. If you have
someone else's bankbook and you spend their money, you are a thief. Taking
another love owner's place and using it as if you were his wife, that is
robbery. Don't do it! The precious part that the man has, the wife has to
ask for it or you should never expose it, because it is too precious. You
are not going to use it in any other way because it is simply not yours.
- Corresponding relationships
Find material through which you can
recreate (fundraise). Restore from the satanic world. You must add your
blood, sweat and tears to it and offer it to heaven. Through this you can
go up and inherit the elder son's position. You must win approval from Satan.
Father, too, just like God, invests so much but then forgets; he doesn't
remember. If he remembers, Father says, he cannot continue. So he forgets,
does it again, forgets, does it again, and it becomes bigger not on the
same proportion but on a larger proportion. A lot of Korean people and the
Korean government cannot figure Father out. Father makes so much money and
puts everything into America and what does he get? They think, nothing. Is
that so? Something is brewing, and that is, of course, what people don't
If you really had a genuine friend, and that genuine friend gave you a
present of love valued at $100, you know that it cost $100. Then toward that
genuine friend and genuine present of love do you say, next time I will give
him an $80 present? Not even a bad man would think like that. You would want
to return to him $150, because you know his true intention. Because you know
his true intention you want to pay back more, not less. Even though man fell,
man is born with a godly essence; even fallen man has that kind of good God's
quality. So we who live on earth, we don't want to drain someone's resources
and then go to spirit world. We want to give more than we receive and when
we do that and go to spirit world then we receive that much more than we gave.
So we should have the habit to, invest-forget, invest-forget continually
investing. We live for the sake of doing that. Among your friends,
the one who always tries to do something for others, he become popular,
doesn't he? He becomes the center of that group. That's Father's tradition,
that's God's tradition. Why do you become the center? Because God is like
that. Because you resemble God and God is the natural center, you are also
natural center. So this is a formula: the more you do for the sake of others
the more you will come to receive in the future. So that is the tradition
of our Parents, and of God.
Look at Unification Church members for example. If there was this kind of
person we would have a great list now today. "Oh I joined Unification
Church, I dedicated all my junior effort and youth, ten years, fifteen years
into the cause. What do I get? I'm so short-changed. I am not going to do
anything more." Does this resemble God? Apparently not. If you genuinely
invested yourself, then the universe would have come around and filled you
up already, like air. If there is a vacuum, a low-pressure area, then the
high pressure will gush in and a storm will form. The vacuum power is greater
than the pushing power. Do you understand? So if that is not happening to you
then maybe you didn't work so hard during all those years. The inexhaustible,
unlimited, power of life should come in when you invest and invest and forget.
- Connecting with True Love
Then we come to eternal life-the life
that never stops, never ends, because it becomes greater. Our life, through
true love, will continue and prosper more and more, eternally. It is easy
to say eternal life, but where does it come from? There is nowhere it can
come from except from in here. We don't have to think like that all the
time, it is already on an unconscious level. Men, women all go after true
love. Why? Because they gain something. That gain is eternal life. How
grateful we are because it is the spouse, our partner, who helps me to gain
eternal life. Without her, without him we cannot reach eternal life. Why should
we get married? What's wrong with celibacy? It is wrong. True love has to be
eternal. To be eternal you have to get married. Why do you get married? You
have to have a specific purpose. For the sake of connecting to eternal life
we marry. When you do that you become to eternal subject, who is God. Then
you become eternal object to that eternal subject, God. And you become one
with Him. That is the full purpose of marrying. By marrying and having an
eternal life you occupy God, you pull God in, God cannot help but come to you.
True love always has ownership, so God occupies us through true love. So
if you and your husband, you and your wife have true love, God immediately
comes and claims ownership. Wife and husband each are half, combined
making one, true love sphere. Completing that centering on true love,
then automatically the Original Center comes, making a partnership on the
opposite side. Opposite side, connecting there, making that connection to
subject-object, connected centering on love make ideal couple connected with
one, centering on true love. Centering on True Love, making unification and
centering on True Love you can inherit everything. Participation everywhere,
same place. God is mine, including God's property, everything is mine. That
means whole universe, centering on true love, unites with God and the whole
created world is my property. Do you understand? That is ownership. You want
ownership at a high level, don't you? You are greedy. Why? Originally we
had that kind of position. After the fall it was a miserable situation. In
your original mind is like an electrical power, indicating north and south,
moving that original fork. Your original mind has that characteristic,
walking in that same direction, no matter how much your present fallen
situation resists that. Your original mind is working to go back to that
original point. That is my mind-working power. Do you understand?
So your mind clearly understands the high level it wants to reach. "I
want all of the creation. Even the high level of God, I want to occupy
fully." Greedy, aren't you? Same thing. Everyone wants to become a
King. Everyone wants to be a high professor. Everyone wants to become the
True Love Parents. These are the three main subject thoughts. Who is the main
subject being of these three goals, or thoughts? God. God is the owner of
all the created world; God is the great teacher, knowledge king; God is the
True Love King. God is that kind of three owners. That is the subject one; we
become the object ones. Object means the same level partner. So the mind that
wants ownership is like God, also high teacher and high parents. Connecting
into one. We have to have that kind of greed to lead us to that high level.
Everyone's' greed can make the completion of the original purpose of creation
of humankind. Do you understand?
After the fall we had a miserable situation-we lost everything-but your
original mind understood that kind of direction. Why? Because Adam and Eve grew
up almost sixteen years. Their mind grew up going in the correct direction,
constantly moving forward to the terminal point. They were ambitious. Do
you understand? Humankind's ambition to obtain these goals is an original
natural characteristic. Do you follow me, do you understand?
Father wants that, no matter how difficult the situation. Do you know that
I was creating the Washington Times during the court case? It was on tape that
the American government wanted to kill me. They were my enemy-I understood
that. But God until now, has been forgiving and loving His enemies, investing
and forgetting that He invested in His enemies. I followed God's attitude-I
forgave everything. Do you know how much the Washington Times spent? 830
million. How much money! Only one, The Washington Times , spent that much
money. How much money was spent for all American activities? But Reverend
Moon didn't take a loss. Why? I gave everything, centered on true love. So
it expands everyday. So that I could affect the depth of American thinking,
filling it full of true love water. Completely full, occupying everything.
You know that Inquisition book has appeared all over America. After people
read that, they can change completely, 180 degrees. Until now the worst guy
is Reverend Moon. "Reverend go back home." But now they understand,
and say Reverend Moon don't go back home. If you go back home America has
no hope. Now this miserable situation in America; who can save her? The
American government, economic power, knowledge power, cannot save her. She
is perishing. No hope. But, Reverend Moon leading her can resurrect another
hopeful world. Do you know what I mean? I gave everything and then forgot,
through true love. By doing so I didn't perish. I was making that atmosphere,
and then went up and up more and more. Until now, when Reverend Moon appeared
somewhere, the media world said, "UHHHHGG!" Isn't that true!
Not taking me as a serious person. Now there is a welcoming atmosphere all
over the country. So you have to follow behind God and True Parents. Don't
take the road that leads to death, only prosperity. That kind of attitude will
only bring you prosperity; you will not perish. Believe in Father and invest.
You have to know that recreation course and atmosphere. You have to make
that recreation atmosphere. You have to make resources, that is fundraising
work, going out and receiving persecution, meeting Satan on the frontline. They
took our original front line power; they took the elder son's position,
we were standing there in the youngest son's position. The youngest son
cannot inherit ownership. Isn't that true? So then, we have to restore that
ownership. Ownership refers that Cain and Abel concept. What is the Cain/Abel
concept? That is subject-object. The vertical subject-object concept is
that the parents are subject, and the children are object. The horizontal
concept is husband and wife. Front and rear concept is brotherhood. That
together is what we call Cain/Abel concept. At first Satan occupied that
first son's position, so we stood in the youngest child position. We have to
restore the original elders' position, that is mankind's original ideal of
creation position. That was lost, we have to rediscover, go back. That is
clearly the restoration purpose. You cannot deny that. So think about the
recreation course formula way: how can we make the restored atmosphere? God
first made the environment, that sets up that subject-object concept. This
concept is the Cain and Abel concept.
So, if you count that as a chapter, Father has already given you a whole
book about what to do when returning to Canaan-how to restore your hometown
when you go back.
- The Foundation of Victory and the Foundation of Cain and Abel.
That means that unless subject and object become one the realm of victory
doesn't come to exist.
- The Children's Foundation
- The Family Foundation
Unless the family, centered on husband and wife, has good give and take
the family foundation does not exist. A victorious family foundation becomes
the Cain and Abel foundation. The foundation of victory only comes from
the foundation of Cain and Abel. In other words, unless there is a good
relationship between Cain and Abel, perfection does not result.
So realize that wherever you happen to work, you are not working there
to receive the living expense. No. Let's say your value is $1,000, and you
invest it in something and get only $50 or $500 back. Why would you do such
a foolish thing? Then why do you work in a company? If you work in a company
you must work as if you are the eternal partner of that company. Then nobody
can take you away from it. So you work with the company. If you honestly
put your genuine effort in there you will occupy the full thing, not in a
negative way but in a positive way. You will be the center. If somebody
tries to eliminate you, no, he will be eliminated. You don't evaluate your
spouse as a condition to do something, no, you unconditionally receive him
or her. Likewise in a company where you are working, you are part of it,
you're the partner, no one can erase you out of there. You are not working
for money. Like Father, too, he goes day and night and invests and forgets
and invests again, whether it returns or not. No one else can come to the
same ground and try to occupy that. It simply will not work. Someone can
say, "Oh, I can do as well as Reverend Moon, maybe I can do better,
so that's mine." No. It's never possible. Because Father is subject and
invested everything in the object, no stranger can come in and intervene in
that subject-object relationship.
Dr. Weinberg is such a razorsharp critical person and he will never easily
respond to anybody's good will, even Father's. So he said in his confession
that he watched and watched Father and the Unification Church and now he is
very proud to say that there is no discrepancy between what the Unification
Church claims it is and what it truly is. Everything that the Unification
Church did was genuine, he said. Perhaps he watched how much Father invested
in it and how much Father remembered, and maybe it passed his criteria,
his test. He observed that Father invested and invested and has no trace
of remembering it, and it moved Weinberg and he proclaimed "This is
genuine; in seventeen years I found this out and now proclaim it." He
was jubilant when he said that. Of course, even God is moved by Father. The
fact that Weinberg is moved is really not that great. God follows Reverend
Moon, how can Weinberg fail to recognize that, and not follow?
Father likes to boast and be proud too. If Father really expressed his
pride in all the things that he has done, he could do it so much that maybe
you would all run away. Father is treating you like Father's bosom friends,
eternal friends, and Father shares with you all the essential things. If
Father knew that you were not worthy of it, how miserable Father would be.
But Father trusts you as bosom friends and shows you these things, knowing
that one day you will live up to your standard. This is the way Father
feels. Father's grandson and granddaughter, how loveable are they? So Father
embraces them. But can Father speak anything to them? He cannot, they
are only two or three years old. Maybe you are a little better than that?
At least you understand what Father is talking about, at least you seem
to understand. You respond! So you are better than Father's three-year-old
granddaughter and grandson. Maybe that is why Father is doing this. So Father
misses you. Father means that. When you have to go away, Father wishes you
would stay a few minutes longer before you go. Maybe you feel that heart,
so you feel the same thing toward Father. You don't want to leave Father
immediately, you want to stay with Father even a few more minutes. Knowing
we are unworthy, we still want to do that, and that is the give and take
- The Foundation of Tribe
- The Foundation of the Nation
(Adam and Eve and Jesus' Foundation)
If Adam and Eve hadn't fallen, God's country would automatically have
come to exist. But since this didn't happen, we are about to restore it,
and we have to do these things before we can restore it. If that foundation
had been done in Jesus' time, Rome would have been absorbed and digested
for the heavenly foundation.
- The Foundation of the True Parents
- The National
Jesus was to fulfill the national foundation-we are
now restoring Jesus' work-but Father's work is much more extensive than
that. Father first has to make a national foundation, then make a world
foundation, and then a cosmic foundation, and then he returns to God. Then,
from the children's to the parental foundation, everything will have been
accomplished. What is remaining now, which is absolutely the last step,
is the Unification Federation for World Peace.
Unification federation means country-to-country. It means neighboring
countries being on good terms, friendly countries. The whole world will be
moving into the realm of salvation. We won't have to do tribal messiahship or
anything like that. Whole countries will return to their original positions.
Tribal messiahship is necessary to establish the national foundation. That
is what we are doing now. The Unification Federation will be a vertical
relationship. That will be really the end of Father's work. After that
all Father has to do is enjoy and sleep. Centering on true love we can
make the Federation for World Peace. That is the end, our terminal point.
Isn't it? Then what will we see? The satanic world completely vanishing
and only the heavenly world reigning forever and ever. This is the end of
America doesn't welcome me, so I go back to Korea. I will work to unify
North and South Korea. I have been working on this for 13 years. Kim Il
Sung wants to meet me. I always made conditions for North Korea, to unify
the Korean peninsula centering on Father's work. Do you understand? Now they
can take only one direction. Now the United Nations is admitting both North
and South Korea. That means they are making the national foundation, on the
same level as the entire Free World. Taking their visa, they can travel back
and forth, no problem. Do you understand? The North and South Koreans were
separated at the time of the Korean War. How can they stay separated? Even
the American situation, the Western world or whatever country, if they hear
about parents and children being separated, they immediately give residency
to unite them. Same thing, both sides, automatically uniting relatives. How
can anyone stop that? Making expansion of that relation to the national
level. Automatically they are combined into one. North Korea understood
that. All will be combined with Reverend Moon into one.
Reverend Moon has a worldwide foundation, all over the free world,
and in South Korea too. Connect with Reverend Moon into one. South Korea
has the same situation. How can they be unified with North Korea? North
Korea's armament, their ideology, is communist; how can South Korea digest
it? South Korea does not have that kind of knowledge; only Reverend Moon
has it. Centering on Reverend Moon both sides can connect and digest each
other, no problem. South Korea represents Christian world ideas, we have
Divine Principle. North Korea is connecting to the communist regime. We have
realized victory over communism, too. Both sides Father digested; centering
on Father they will move 180 degrees different direction, no problem. They
will be silent. Do you understand? They will say, "We want to follow
you." That phenomenon will occur, based upon those conditions which
Father made. Father's direction goes back to God's way. No one knows that
direction, only Reverend Moon and the Unification Church. That is clear.
No-one know how to make a unification federation for world peace. In God
is the power to be the king of knowledge, of sovereignty, of prosperity, of
everything. That day is not far away from us, we can see that. It is within my
vision. Do you know that? Now can you solve these things? I gave the contents,
the explanations. Father just gave us the contents for reaching this goal,
reaching our original world. Father would not mind to share more with you,
but no more now.
So, God established the restoration of the elder sonship on the individual
level when the Israelites came into being. They were standing on the right
side and the satanic world was then pushed to the lefthand side. Here is
the very origin of rightwing and leftwing. God has no place to settle down
on this earth, He has to move to and fro. The head is who? That is the
perfected Adam. The perfection of Adam is the perfection of a nation. It
is not an individual; Adam is not an individual, he is already a nation.
So expanding, it will become nation automatically, it's not two different
things. So centering on the Israelites God promised to send the Messiah. Who
is the Messiah? He is the head, the perfected Adam.
So the Messiah came on this foundation. Here are the Israelites, the Jewish
religion and country, and here are all the peripheral religions, and here is
where the head, the Messiah, came. So if Jesus, who stood in that position,
had been voted in, he could have unified the twelve tribes immediately with
no problem. Then with that, he could have made the subject-object relationship
with all the Oriental nations and with the later-to-become Muslim nations. If
the Israelites and the Christian church combined into one at that time,
immediately Moses' twelve tribes could have come to the Islamic world-the
Middle East side. Do you understand? At that time the Jewish center, the twelve
tribes would have been in the subject position. Automatically they wanted to
meet the Messiah, unite into one immediately. The subject's area would have
enlarged. At that time the Oriental world, the religious and cultural world
of Hinduism, Buddhism and Confucianism automatically would have been object
to Jesus in the subject and center position. Subject and object would have
combined, no problem, immediately. That then would be subject, and with Rome
as object, being immediately digested, a unified world would have been no
problem-a federation for world peace at Jesus' time. Within his lifetime,
achieving that purpose would have occurred. Jesus on the national base of
subject and object, Jewish and original Christianity combined, then that
center would have opened. It is like the head, the nation means the head.
Mind-side is right side; body-side is left side. Standing left, king position
is head position.
But the Israelites and Jewish religion combined with Rome and cut
Jesus' neck. At that time there were the right thief and left thief named
Barabbas. Three thieves at that time! Who is the thief who was spared at
Jesus' time? Barabbas. Only Barabbas. At that time the thief on the right,
protected Jesus, thief on the left attacked Jesus. The two fought. At that
time the right thief and left thief died at the same time. If Jesus was not
killed, automatically those thieves would have combined into one. Those two
combined with Jesus as subject, would have digested the left thief with no
problem. In his lifetime, the false world could have been digested. At that
time, Barabbas could have turned around 180 degrees.
That means Jesus' mission would have been completed. Combining all the
Middle Eastern world, and combined with that, the Eastern and Western world
in the unification federation of world peace centering on God's love. At
that time Jesus was killed when those two thieves died. Died means Satan
connected to those positions, making a world-level foundation. After Jesus
was killed Satan expanded his world foundation.. The resurrection of those
positions is at the Second Advent, the Last Days. The left side and right
sides have expanded, continuing to fight. The communist world was the
devil's world. That means at Jesus's death, the realms of right and left
expanded to the world level. The United States was centering on the right,
the communist world centering on the left. Exactly the same as at Jesus'
time. At this time, we are resurrecting that world foundation. At the time of
the second advent Jesus again appears as the center, and then the free world
can combine into one and communist world combine into one and Muslim world
combine into one. That is the mission of the Second Advent. Do you understand?
The Unification Church, centering on Reverend Moon, came to America
to connect that victorious foundation with the American government,
the presidential level. The Christian world didn't take the subject
position. Instead, the Unification Church inherited the Christian world,
combining with it into one. Father is standing upon that combined
subject-object foundation. Reagan became the president in 1980 through
me. Think about it. Five years after the Vietnam War, a conservative,
moral, rightwing Reagan could become the President of the United States. Who
made that? Reverend Moon. During my time in Danbury jail, in 1984, I helped
Reagan too. He was my enemy. Bush, too. I chose those great American leaders,
centering on the Unification Church as subject, with the American government
as object-connected into one. The Washington Times helped America overcome
the communist world. The Washington Times completely serving the nation,
eliminating the Soviet curse. That means that, centering on Father, the
rightwing united into one and digested the leftwing. That is the resurrected
Jesus' world foundation. Occupying those two thieves completely, and Barabbas'
position. Islam is like Barabbas' position, that third one. God's religious
side doesn't have that kind of concept. On Satan's side, the communist world
represents the body and the Muslim world is the mind. Syria represented the
center of Soviet terrorism. How can God digest that kind of situation? I
chose the Syrian Grand Mufti, and brought him and his followers here for
forty days education, digesting them here in America. After that they
are completely following me. Three Muslim nations fulfilled this course,
which is now finished. Reverend Moon combined with those three, turning
them around completely 180 degrees. Now occupying them, with no accusation,
no persecution. Making one direction.
The time is coming when the mind and body, which were separated after
the fall, will be united into one. Who made that? Adam, the worst parents,
separated into two parts. The True Parents are combining the religious (mind)
and political (body) worlds into one. Everything is being turned around,
and the free world, communist world, religious world and political world
cannot come against me. The whole world is following that. Automatically
this makes a peaceful world, one terminal point.
How can all those directions be unified? The scientific world, political
world, secular world and religious world combine centering on Father. This
is everything. Why is Reverend Moon the Second Coming of Christ? Because the
communistic world, free world and secular world, Muslim world, religious world
and political world are all being digested. That is the messianic mission
at the Second Advent. Do you understand? This is true, you cannot deny it.
That is the terminal political point, historical point, ideal world
peace point, with everything toward one goal, making unification. That is
all there is, all is finished. I established every areas' conditions. Not
only conditions, almost reality! It is more than seventy percent accomplished.
So, you have to clearly understand Father's mission, how he could make
that completion level. You have to know that, to understand how to inherit
Father's foundation. How can you expand your national foundation to cover the
free world? This is the Unification Church's mission. Do you follow me? No
matter how difficult your situation, you have to push over, going on to the
hopeful future. That is it.
Now we understand what the Lord of the Second Coming is, what the Messiah
is. He is coming with Godism and Headwing Thought, Godism is vertically
connected to the spiritual world. From Godism to Headwing Thought, he
accomplished everything. So the one who understands this much, already
understands that first are Headwing and Godism, and number three is Reverend
Moon-there is no one else that can be connected right here. And the Unification
Church. They all know what we stand for. Is it as clear to you as it is to
all the world leaders? This is the right way of interpreting history. For
the first time, Father explained it exactly, how history is proceeding
and why. Also Father is completely right about the law of restoration by
indemnity. This is a law which Father introduced.
So, the conclusion for us, now, is that we must return to our native land,
our hometown, and create the subject-object relationship ourselves we must
establish the subject/object relationship. You being subject establish the
realm of object.
Have you ever thought before this moment that you have to establish the
subject-object relationship in creating an environment? You first have to
realize your own environment, and you have to teach the Divine Principle
with words, to recreate people. So the Divine Principle should be your main
armament for you to educate people.
Without knowing Divine Principle, they will eternally remain ignorant of
the godly way. Now that Father entrusted you as the subject and object in
the Cain and Abel principle, he can leave you anywhere. If Father goes to
Russia and asks for a room, he trusts that they will give him one of the best
rooms in the Kremlin palace. We are in that mission. We are Abel. Gorbachev
will say, "Yes, of course." But can Bush say "Yes" with
equal confidence? Well, if they can't, they are the losers. The Soviets will
be the winners. Now Father is trying to evade that mishap. He is trying
even now, trying even harder, to bring Bush and Gorbachev into the right
relationship. But it is not so easy.
Now, you all have been to Russia, have you not? Please raise
your hands-many. What did you feel there? What are the possibilities
there? Which youth will be easier to educate-the Soviet youth or the American
youth? (Soviets) What an irony-they are much more qualified here, but they
are not going to be of any value.
No matter what any leader's personal opinion is, no one can take Unification
Thought out of their minds-it is already implanted. Gorbachev thought
the KGB were difficult to deal with, so please educate them. Father is
still thinking about that. And Gorbachev said, we have no one to trust in
the Western world-how true-Gorbachov saw it right. And he asked Father to
find some men in lieu of Western people and educate them. And the CIA says,
"What are you doing?" But that is what Gorbachev wants, and he
needs it too. He needs good, patriotic people.
So, what is your guess? Do you think Father is smart or not too
smart? (Smart!) Smarter than we? (Yes) A few dimensions ahead of today,
that is for sure. Father is several steps ahead of you, maybe that is why
you don't understand.
But, have you ever really believed in Father? You did not understand
what Father was up to. You thought he had Oriental concepts, different
from American people. And you thought that Americans were somehow smarter
than Father, even though you wouldn't say it. But now, anyway you slice it,
Father's thinking is far more substantial than anything you ever think.
So, Father invested here, there and everywhere, and you didn't know. Your
head was spinning and you didn't know what Father was up to. Now, when Father
put together the pieces like a jigsaw puzzle, it fits and you begin to see
the picture. Now you start nodding more approvingly. Father is a wonderful
leader-we didn't know that.
So, we thank Father and wish Father the final success, and we should go
to hometown and become tribal messiahs. Do you understand what Father is
saying? If the Israelites had not gone into Canaan when God told them to do
that through Moses, if they had stayed in the comfort of Egypt, they would have
been eternal slaves, servants. Now, Father, as the subject of a victorious
foundation, is allowing us to be in the realm of object, and the object will
completely obey to the subject, becoming one no matter what, and go ahead
and carry out Father's direction. We will be owners ourselves. Otherwise,
we will be slaves, like the Israelites would have been if they had remained
in Egypt, servants.
You don't have to worry about the country so much. Do it, and the country
will come to exist-God will bring us the country. And the nation and world
will follow, the cosmos will follow, no problem. We can win over hell, too,
and Satan too.
So Father accomplished it and made a special ceremony to that effect, the
first of July. What if Father, for today's celebration of five birthdays,
had that broadcast on television, and four or five billion people could
view it worldwide. "Reverend Moon is so famous worldwide. It is his
children's birthday today." All over the world, people would want to
participate in those birthdays! Many countries are becoming like that. One
time, two times, stir up the world. We can do, no problem. I made that
television studio center-big. That company can connect to every country's
television stations, no problem. Many companies are moving into our studio
complex. Father literally became a media center.
So, we made Father work all morning. How can we express our
appreciation? Now, Father will go to Alaska, and will continue to study to
make up all the deficits we are making now. He has to pay extra effort to
make this happen.
So, Father reduced this church hierarchy to a minimum. Father told
Mr. Kamiyama and all the old 777 couples to go back to Japan and start
anew. Only the relatively new Japanese members will remain in America. You
see, the times are changing. In Korea, for instance, there is only one person
at HSA, and everyone else went to their hometowns. We must stay abreast-what
about America, should we do the same?
We didn't come around Father to get a job and a living expense. We came
here to be educated and to create a new country, a new nation-and we are the
soldiers of independence forces. We are not dependent forces, but independent
forces. You must inherit the American Founding Fathers' spirit-you will be
the founding fathers, the pioneers of this country-one nation under God, and
we'll make one world under God. You are the harbingers, the pioneers. We know
the sacrifices of the Pilgrim Fathers, and should we sacrifice more or less
than they, knowing everything we know today? Decide in your mind, make up your
mind. But you are not desperate-your door is open ahead of you-a big road,
instead of a small road. All you have to do is have absolute confidence.
The Pilgrim Fathers just believed, hoped. You can do much better because
you know-how can you not do so much better than they? You walked the way
knowing where you were going. Is that true? You know well.
