WHO ARE BLESSED BY HEAVEN

When we say heaven, what are we referring to? When we say heaven,
centering on God, it means all spirit world, except hell. As we see,
the Hudson River flows in one direction. It flows into the sea which is
the deepest part of the earth. All water flows from high to low; the
opposite doesn't happen. Air, too, flows from a high pressure area to
a low pressure area. What about human society? Do we see a similar
relationship between high, middle and low classes? Does it flow from
high to low, or the reverse? All nature shows us that things flow from
high to low, but as we look at human society it is backwards and
disordered. There is struggle and war. The heavenly spirit world also
flows from high to low. The natural flow is from high to low, but man
struggles against this. Why is this? Because of the fall.
Our mind represents heaven and the body, earth. The mind always
wants to give to the body, but the body fights and struggles against
the mind. Why is this? The fall. And, who is the master of the fall?
Satan. All nature wants to get rid of Satan so it can return to normal.
What is the one thing that always works? Man. Even going against
nature, he still wants to go to the highest place. This is especially
true of evil organizations. We see the Mafia, which does not allow the
natural flow of the mind, but rather threatens and coerces people. They
feel that in order to survive with that wicked goal, they have to
strike first. We also find individuals who hate others. Satan is
against the laws of nature, whereas God upholds them. Satan tries to
reach the top by going against the order of nature. God tries to reach
it in an orderly way, but how difficult it is!
It is not that Satan does not know God's will. Satan knows about God
very well. Satan, however, tries to go in an unorderly way. We can
classify all human beings into two categories: conscientious and not
conscientious. Satan makes relationship with an unconscientious person
and God with a conscientious person. We see that they contradict each
other. What is the point of origin? Is it an individual or family?
(Individual.) Yes, it is man and woman. We see all contradictions,
struggles and wars begin from the individual. Because of the fall, all
trouble begins from the individual. This is a great awareness, an
important thing to know. Roughly, my body tries to go against my mind.
The body belongs to Satan's side, and our mind to God's side.
We have five senses in the body and also in the world of mind. My
mind has an eye for seeing and a nose for smelling, just like the body
does. Therefore, do I belong to Satan or to God at this moment?
The mind directs to go one way, and with much energy we go. Then the
body complains and resists. We go back and forth, but over much time
are we going forward or backward? Am I going to be a bodily person or a
mind person? Which one? (Mind.) If that were true you would be an
individual who did not fight within himself. However, as you go back
and forth, chances are you will end up as a bodily person. Often even
when we know what is right, a person asserts what is wrong. When you
know what is right you have to bow down to it. An individual knows
better than God which is right or wrong. At the judgment there is no
way for us to defend ourselves. Without religion this is that way of
perishment for all people. To save them, God has given religion.
Religion says, "Whatever you want-do not do it. Deny your
desires." This is because the bodily five senses are always going
against the wishes of God.
Is self-denial a natural thing or not? Is it normal for God to force
us to deny ourselves? It is only normal because he has our best
interest at heart. Isn't it true that deeply religious men in the past
didn't even know this? Once Father points this out, then of course we
know it, but if it were not pointed out, nobody would know. What chance
did they have to succeed?
How much mankind has gone against God and religion! From this
perspective, what is America like? It is a Christian nation which is
supposed to follow God's teaching, but it has ended up as the kingdom
of individualism. This has settled down in the middle of Christianity.
God worked for thousands of years, but has He failed in America or not?
Clearly failed. Now we see the 180 degree opposite direction. If
America continues to live as it does, will we all go to heaven or hell?
Therefore, we see very clearly that the Christians have come to an
ungodly place. Do they work against good things or bad? They work
against good without their knowing it.
All religions sprang up in different circumstances. Their cultures,
languages and customs were different, but God made them universal.
Today we see lower, middle and higher religions. We should be able to
identify the religions corresponding to these levels. We know that this
law works. Any religion which only works on the family alone will be
rejected by the clan. A religion which is specific to a nation will be
rejected by the world. This is not only true for religions, but applies
to the secular world, too. If a family is confronted by a strong clan,
they will be driven out. A nationalistic country can be isolated by the
world. With each step we go upwards. Once we reach the top level, the
whole world will be divided into two, one good, one evil. So we see the
communist and democratic worlds. The democratic world has tried to
follow God, whereas the communist world has denied even God. They
should be done away with, but they still bring trouble. Even atheism
and theism begin with the individual.
Each religion in the world starts its own ideology. In the free
world we have many ideologies, whereas the communists have only one.
Actually all religions should come together, because their purpose must
be the same, to bring communism down. It would have happened much
sooner had they united. Why has communism come down, and not the free
world? It is because the free world, through sacrifice, tried to live
for others. The free world also tried to love their enemy. Amongst all
religions, only Christianity is like that. Buddhism is not like that.
In order for God to save us, He must let us know that our body is our
mind's enemy. In order to save all we have to save ourselves first.
We can clearly see why God had to let Christianity be the central
religion. It is because they love their enemy. Christianity had the
chance to save all the world at the end of World War II. But what if a
stronger religion, which loves its enemy more, arises in the last days?
In that religion a man will have the attitude to sacrifice even his own
family. That religion will stand on top of the whole world, asserting
more influence than any other religion in history, including
Christianity, and will be supported by God.
There is no denying this through reason. The family that lives for
the nation will prosper. The nation that lives for others will prosper.
The true history of the Unification Church is for Abel to sacrifice for
Cain. We have the tradition where Cain will push Abel up because Abel
is working for the sake of Cain himself. Abel will voluntarily push
God has done so much; has He ever raised His voice showing what He
has done? No. He just does more. Unification Church members live for
the sake of the whole and even want to get a nation for the sake of the
world. Why are they right to do that? For example, water has the
responsibility to reach to the deepest depth. No matter how big a river
is, when it flows into the sea, does it stay fresh or does it become
salty? (Salty.) Likewise, all men will go to the spirit world; none
will stay. The habits and customs of fresh water do not matter; we will
all end up in the salt water. Religious people, while living in the
fresh water, go against the fresh water and prepare for the salt water.
What would happen if we went unprepared?
Everyone starts from individualistic thinking, then becomes a family
man. When they realize this is not enough, they will live for their
tribe, nation and world. Are we going to get closer to Satan or further
away? Is there anything that Father asked you to do, that you like:
fasting, fundraising or witnessing for the sake of others? Before, we
did whatever we did and our conscience didn't bother us. Today we know
enough, but we don't do enough. Does our conscience bother us or not?
When you drink alcohol, does your conscience bother you? It used to be
that it went down freely. Not any more. When Father says do this and
we don't, then we feel uncomfortable, don't we? Even though we may not
go straight ahead, we at least walk like a crab. We have changed from
the first day. Is walking sideways like a crab the normal standard for
a Unification Church member? Each one of us knows which angle we are
going in. There are very few who are confident and going exactly 180
degrees opposite from where they used to go. We have no choice. There
is only one way to go whether we go willingly or unwillingly.
Which is more salty, the deep ocean or the surface of the ocean?
(Deep.) Why? Because salt is heavier than water. Then where would the
palace of the Kingdom of Heaven be? In the deepest salt water. So where
should I be? In the deepest part of the ocean. God is in the highest,
the cleanest and purest place. The higher a religion is, the more they
know of God and His ways. They must help the other religions. This is
what the higher religion must do. The fact that we live for others,
even the enemy, is because that is how the spirit world is. That's why
we have to do that here. Religion is to love the satanic world, not to
fight each other. If they fight they will end up in a very difficult
place. How can two religions reach up to God if they fight each other?
The Unification Church has to treat all religions the same. We cannot
call other religions heretical, we must love them. Even Shamanism,
which is a very low religion, was fostered by God in the beginning.
Reverend Moon and the Unification Church fought against communism for
their sake and Father is now teaching them, to save them.
What Reverend Moon has done is what America should do for the
religious world. However, they are not even thinking about it. Only
Reverend Moon is serious to save the communist world. God must love
Reverend Moon and the Unification Church. God cannot help but support
the Unification Church when He sees this. Do you agree? These walls
must be happier than us. The wall has a fixed mind, whereas our minds
are still wandering. We are thinking that Father is speaking too long.
So compared to the wall, you are in a low position. Stay awake.
Father has not talked about investment. How much have we been given
by God? We owe so much to God. All religions have been persecuted. As
they were persecuted, they grew. Among all religions Christianity was
the most persecuted and sacrificed the most. All the fruit of that
sacrifice is now in America. Are Americans aware of that? Americans
must turn and embrace all the world. Instead, America is turning away.
The universe will spit at it and it will fall. But we Unification
Church members must hold America and apply the brake and turn America
around. Are all the Unification Church members strong enough to do
that, to bring America to a screeching stop? This is a serious point.
How serious this is when America is on the brink of dying. How can we
Father may bring guests to Atlantic City where there is gambling.
That's a very difficult place to survive, too. So, we have to stay
awake how long? Father tries to stay awake longer than anyone else who
sets foot on that place. By exerting a strong power, try to apply a
brake to the direction America is going. Then no matter what you use,
you must investigate and you must apply a tremendous energy to
accomplish this. Free sex must go. Hollywood and the immoral media
must go. We must shed light on the dens of prostitutes. Should Father
visit there or not? The thing that is different from Reverend Moon and
any other person is that Father can stop at any time. At any moment he
can turn around, but not everybody else.
A good doctor also experiences the sharpest pain of the patient.
Without that he cannot be a good doctor. Drinking alcohol itself is not
a sin, but once you start drinking alcohol it gets the better of you
and makes you sin. It takes an extraordinary person to get over that.
You must control your body, control yourself. Even in the matter of
love, we have to control.
Has there ever been a true man and woman, until now? Here is God who
is an absolute plus, an absolute subject and He demands that discipline
and says, "Man, you must become a complete minus, a complete
object." For women it is the same. Father is the plus of the
Unification Church. How much have we united with Father? What is the
reality? What about the closest person to Father, who is Mother? Is
that one hundred percent or not? What about woman? They all want their
husbands to follow their desires. It is not necessarily bad, because
in love we are equal. However, when rotation stops the woman should be
below. American women want to end up on top. We must be very aware of
this. We are on a rail and we do not want to derail. The rail is not
always straight. We must consider the speed and the curve. To stay on
the rail we must know these things.
What are we, good, bad or mediocre? We want to be the highest, but
sometimes we are low. How do we know this? When we tell someone he is
low, he will get angry. This is Satan's way, Satan's temper. When we
are criticized we should keep silent and try to improve. Never try to
fight back. That is a serious point. God knows the standard of the
world. He is a pain-filled God; He cannot find anyone who resembles
Compare men and women. Which is slightly better than the other? Can
you solve this problem? Each one of us here thinks that "I"
am the center of all men or the center of all women. Does your mind
think like that? Even though our mind desires that, we must find a way
to that point. By the time you reach the center, you don't even know
you are the center because you have been betrayed and disappointed by
all people. For everyone you see, you think is there to betray and
deceive you. Father came to America with the sole purpose of saving
America, but all Americans think that Father has come to exploit us.
Has Father come here to make a slave out of you? No. Father tried to
make us better people, even to the point of sacrificing his children.
When God wanted to be the center of women, God was betrayed by the
person He was working with, and He had to start again. This was
repeated many times. All the time Satan denies God and He has to start
all over again. This is why religions have to sacrifice and build a
foundation to continue, to continue, to continue. The same is true for
the man's world. God only needs one prototype man. Only one perfect man
and one perfect woman. Once all women know which woman is to be the
prototype, they all come against her. What is women's favorite thing?
Jealousy? Talkativeness? Men. What do they want most? Money? Power?
Knowledge? Among these what is it that women want? Man. Rightfully so
because that's what they were born for. That means that everybody has
a purpose. If it weren't for man, women would have no purpose for
living. So naturally, her first purpose is man. Yes, woman needs a man.
If we encourage homosexuality, and are successful in making everyone
homosexual, will humanity perish? Yes. The most effective way for Satan
to prevent man from returning to God is drugs and homosexuality. We
already know that Satan's purpose in working and existing is to turn
180 degrees around against God's direction. Who wants to go to bars and
dancing places? If God told you to go and dance, how happy would you
be? You can dance with no clothes on. If you were in love with your
husband and danced naked at home, would God complain? No. Would God
punish you? No. He would support you. He would say, "Go ahead and
do more because that's what you were born for." But, the question
is, if that same woman did the same thing with another man, would God
mind or not? (Yes.) Is that a problem? It's a very simple principle.
So, what is salvation? Before my family can be saved, I must be
saved. We should follow a straight line back to God. However, if we
follow a zigzag course, it is permitted provided we are going forward
and getting closer to the goal. We can't go backward. Those who have
been in the church only one year often go faster than those who have
been here much, much longer. The one who is in the church for only one
year goes in a most straight line. They go ahead of those who have been
in the church twenty and thirty years. What do you think happens? Do
you think they say, "Even though you are a young person, I respect
you, do more"? Do you think they do that? No. Instead, they will
probably say, "You don't know about seniority. You can't be ahead
of me." Do we see that happening in our church, or not? (Yes.)
What about Father? If someone went in front of Father, he would promote
You Americans feel more comfortable when you speak to Americans.
Father feels the same with those who speak Korean. We must know the
importance of our customs and language, to promote goodness. It is not
a small thing any more. In order to do that, language plays a large
role. Father explains that almost every day in Father's long table with
Korean and American leaders, Father speaks in Korean, and American
leaders don't know what to do. They just sit there and maybe get one
word if someone translates. But how much can you get from one word?
Everyone is busy trying to understand Father's words. There's no time
to translate for Americans. Unless we solve these problems, that effect
will be lasting to the rest of mankind. Don't you feel that way? It's a
very important factor now. How ineffective and confusing it is.
Americans and the British have been very happy, because all the world
is learning English and has been focusing on them. But, how about God?
Do you think God will follow that crowd? (No.) What about True
Parents? Are they going to follow the language of the satanic kingdom?
(No.) Who does God love the most, America or Reverend Moon? He loves
them both, but must choose Reverend Moon, for apparent reasons. So,
should all of us who are English-speaking people learn about Reverend
Moon and introduce him to English-speaking people; or should Father
follow all English people and teach them in English, so in that way all
English-speaking people can learn and change faster?
There are 200 or 300 books of all of Father's sermons in Korean, not
in English. In the scholarly world, already that's the way. We must
learn our ancestors' language too. Imagine, the devoted Christian, and
other religious people, who have been living for fifty years following
the Bible exactly. Now they come to the Unification Church and learn
the Divine Principle. How long will it take? Maybe one year? He will
compare the Bible and the Divine Principle and see that the Divine
Principle is a higher teaching. He will know the value immediately,
and shoot forward like an arrow. Can we match those people? We never
witnessed so much, we never prayed so much, we never did anything so
much. When the Christians are celebrating with the True Family on the
top of the mountain, will we still be struggling up the hill? Should we
expect Father to come down to us and apologize?
Up until now, American members have thought, "Well, Father
favors Korean first and secondly he favors Japanese. Americans are just
a remnant." That's the way American leaders often think because
they don't understand but one word in two or three hours. How can
Father help it? Each one of us must try not to think about other people
so much because we are busy. We should be busy with our own goal and
schedule. The one who comes in place of God is the Messiah. The Messiah
does exactly what God tells him to do, die, get up, go east or west.
The Messiah knows how hard God worked, how miserable God's position is
and no matter how miserable his position is, thinking about God, he
cannot complain. All he can do is follow and try to console God. Thus
we can know how much suffering God has endured from the wounds of
history. There is not even one piece of God that can rejoice. The
Messiah knows the root of God's suffering and tries to uproot that. Not
even once during prison did Father pray to God for help. Father now has
a problem with Japan, but he doesn't ask God to help. Father feels that
even if he goes to hell, God will protect him. When Father lands in a
happy place, all he will do is stay in the corner. That's all Father
will do in front of God. God needs Father when he is in difficulty and
also when he is happy.
Now we know what the Messiah is. We know what is needed to be the
Messiah. True Parents are the Messiah. True Children are the Messiah.
Father has a certain idea about the standard of the tribal messiah, but
when the children don't live up to that standard, Father realizes
there's a problem. In the spirit world Reverend Moon will be the
standard of judgment. Anyone who falls short of Reverend Moon will be
judged if they don't reach it. Reverend Moon's standard is 100 percent.
God doesn't mind if ours is 120 percent, but it should not be lower
than 100. Father wants all of us to become better. Have we been
supporting Father by doing many difficult things, or are we pulling him
down when he's trying to go up?
Father has proclaimed his Messiahship. Are we claiming our tribal
messiahship? If we identify ourselves as disciples of True Parents, as
Father goes higher we go higher, too. When people find out we are
Unification Church members they pay attention to us.
If you ever go to a conference, put on your name card that you are
Reverend Moon's disciple. Walk everywhere with this on. People will
stop and talk to you. How many times a day are you witnessing and
talking? All the media is broadcasting news about your president. Is
Father less important? Do you understand what it is to be a Messiah?
What about the bride to the Messiah, she must completely obey the
groom. This is the greatness of Mother. Father took the leaders of the
women's movement in the car, yet told Mother to stay at home. She did
not complain. Rather, she embraced them. No matter how hateful a woman
may be, Mother still has to embrace her. That means not only son, but
daughter, too. God wants a daughter who will introduce another woman
who is an enemy to her, to her own husband. God wants that kind of
broad-minded women. That doesn't mean we have to do that literally, but
our mind should be as broad as that.
For the last thirty-three years, Mother has had to untangle Jesus'
regret. She had to indemnify a lot of women's past. She has to make
all her rough edges very smooth so that old women or young women who
might try to scratch her, or upset her, cannot. All women thought that
Mother took their position as Father's wife. Mother was only a
teenager. Everyone blamed her for taking their husband. The whole
spirit world was like a tornado. Every woman was crazy for Father. You,
too, would have wanted to marry Father. If Father was a bad person, he
could have behaved as a secular person would have done, but Father knew
Adam's responsibility. Father took everybody as his own sister and
raised them up and matched them as they were supposed to be. At the
same time Father raised up Mother as True Mother. Father treated her as
his own daughter, sister, spouse and mother. Father restored all these
positions which Adam and Eve lost.
The spirit world worked through the older women. Spirit world
revealed the whole thing to them. So, when Father would go some place
for that day, the grandmother already knew where Father was going and
she went there before him. When Father arrived she smiled very sweetly
at him because she was embarrassed and said, "I'm here."
Spirit world told her, so she just believed what the spirit world told
They boasted to all that, "Reverend Moon is my husband."
In other words, there was a time in history when God allowed an equal
chance to everybody, no matter how old or young. They sincerely
believed that the spirit world told them. At that point God allowed all
to run for that position, just as in an election. Forty years later
Father can laugh and talk about this. But can you imagine how
irritating it was? The old women came up to me and said "You are
my husband." How bad that was! Father had to laugh it off. These
women all moved to the neighborhood of Father's church. They watched
day and night. Each one prepared the meal for Father. They cried for
Father. They made his bed for him. It was to such a degree that it was
actually fearful. But Father knew the principle and could survive.
Father teased them when everybody was there, "Grandmother, even if
you get married to me, you cannot have a baby." They would say,
"Look at Sarah, she was over one hundred, I'm only eighty."
But then spirit world had a reason. Father gradually taught them, and
they gave up.
Father brought it down to the younger age and Father inherited all
that spiritual foundation. Father said to them at last, "Is it up
to you or up to me to choose my bride?" They admitted it was up to
Father. In the meantime, Father collected all that scattered
foundation into one to select a bride. Each one knew who the candidates
were, but then Father chose someone from far away. Everyone then tried
to find Mother. It took six months to a year trying to figure out from
where Mother was coming. During this time an exchange took place. Each
woman had an absolute trust in Father. Now True Mother should have more
trust in Father than they displayed.
Abel's position must love Cain more. Mother, too, as Abel must love
all women in Cain's position. If Mother had behaved differently, she
would have been poisoned by these women. The strong jealousy from the
spirit world would have said to them, "If you erase her, then you
can become Father's spouse." So Father had to chase Mother out,
too. When Father and Mother were walking, if someone came, Father would
push Mother away and embrace the other person. If Father had not done
this, the other women would have come against Father. He couldn't hold
hands with her, or kiss her. Father had to treat her completely as a
All persons have historical regret, not just personal regret from
many, many generations. All women's regrets were dumped on Mother. What
could she do? The golden rule is to be silent and digest them. Father
told Mother what to expect and prepared her. He told her stay close
behind Father and do not leave. If she followed exactly behind Father,
Satan had no claim on her. Satan could then attack Father. All women
tried to accuse Mother, but she stayed very close to Father, like a
shadow. With this tradition, Father paved the road for women to follow.
So the way to the perfection of Mother was to follow Father exactly.
Once she has done that, Satan has no accusation. All he can say is,
"You are a great woman." All women must know how difficult
that road is. There are so many things Father would like to share and
talk to you about. This is necessary for American women to know, so
they may become humble. All American women, too, want to be in Mother's
position. Father has to give us the blessing before our perfection, so
now he has to teach us more.
Father has been damaged by man, blaming him and accusing him before
he can pave up man's role. The worst that can happen to him is go to
jail. Who put father into jail? Man or woman? (Man.) Why? Because when
man saw how women behaved, centering on Reverend Moon, they did not
understand what was going on. They did not understand history, that's
how it was possible for them to put Father in jail. It happened in
Korea when an ordinary housewife no longer stayed at home, but instead
followed Father completely. The husbands could not understand that.
Looking at that kind of wife, it was difficult for a husband to bear.
If Mother had not been selected and Father was still selecting a bride,
the same thing would be happening even now.
Mother accepted this challenge and digested it. She now has her
position today. Father stands representing all men, and all men go
against him, accusing him of taking their dear wife away. "You
came here on earth to snatch her away from me." But then all women
are so close to him. Father has to collect, harvest the blessing that
was given to woman a long time ago and she's held it, kept it. Now she
has to return that to one who's on top.
The servant, stepson, adopted son, and son all go against Father who
comes to represent them. So Father must think and behave just like God
has in the past. Father has to make them as Cain, the elder brother to
him. Otherwise each one cannot stand in their own place. At that time
even beating Father was unthinkable, but it did happen actually. In the
secular world, even in prison, it simply was blinding. Father went into
prison to give them blessings, yet they beat him. Now many years have
passed. Thirty, forty years later, today, all men bow down to him.
Then no one knew, but now we are grateful to you. No one forced men to
bow down like that; it is a natural subjugation. America, too, more and
more despised Reverend Moon, but as time goes by they realize he is
their benefactor. He is one who gives blessing to us.
So, what course did Father take? Eye for an eye, or did Father
embrace them, continue to love them and they were naturally subjugated?
It's the second one isn't it? (Yes.) Do you American women know enough
about why we should bow down to Father? (Yes.) What about you American
men? (Yes.) Father did everything to pave the road back to God so now
he stands on top of the world. Even God would give up all religion and
even all mankind, but not Reverend Moon.
All great men in history have been challenged by Satan but not one
survived. Satan has spread a large net. You cannot survive by fighting
with weapons, only by love. First you have to be beaten. Satan can only
beat you unjustly three times. After that he must retreat. Satan casts
so many nets. As Father avoids the nets, Satan cannot use them again.
So who would Satan follow? Satan's people. Would Satan's people follow
Satan, or would Satan's people follow Reverend Moon? (Father.) Why?
Because in the beginning when they hear the teaching, they feel the
impact and magnitude of it. They also understand the truth of Father's
teaching. They start to follow Father, not Satan. Satan has nothing to
teach. So how about us? Will you follow 100 percent or less? (100
percent.) Why? By doing that, God can love our children 100 percent.
God has many children in Satan's world. Father must embrace them all.
Between Father and son is True Love. Centering on True Love you can
call God Father. True Love is the same for all people for eternity. In
the Garden of Eden, God could not embrace his grandsons, but now He
can. In order to have sons and daughters we must become one with
Father has gone over all eight barriers. As you go over one wall you
have to pay indemnity. Satan is waiting for you to pass at each level,
from the individual to the cosmic level. If Adam had not fallen we
would've naturally arrived at the end, but because of the fall, we have
had to reindemnify everything.
Even the communists, whom Father fought against so much, now love
Father. So there are no enemies in front of Father. Father can go
anywhere - Russia, China, or North Korea. Could the United States
President's wife go to China and have a rally for the people? Mother
has done that. Women's time has arrived. The women go ahead of Father
and Father will follow. In America they know better than anybody else
what we are talking about. Those who are successful in this country,
always have a woman in front of them.
All women can now untangle their regrets through the man. Both in
the spirit world and the physical world, all women can combine and make
one women's rally for man, for all the bad things men did against them.
They can resolve all their bad experiences with men. All women who have
been betrayed, mistreated, cheated, you name it. Men have done very bad
things to women throughout history. When a woman goes to the spirit
world she knows what kind of things man did even though she was
faithful. She never knew while living. So, they all come down to you
and pound on you men. But instead of fighting back all you men can do
is say you are sorry, apologize. She will try to enslave you, drive
you like a servant. She was at the beginning, so now she is trying to
do that back. No matter how terrible she treats you, you must be
thankful. Why? Because you have to be saved by her. So obey woman even
though she persecutes you. No matter what she does or says. Even 360
degrees, all around, in all directions of persecution, you become only
thankful. Now you stand in the archangel's position; follow
Father has been giving the position to all American women here.
Teaching them and raising them in front of all the Christian women in
this country. Father is treating you like a queen. The Christian world
want to become the bride, and you are one step ahead of them.
Christianity is the bride's religion, isn't it? So, American women
should really appreciate this present day position. American women can
obey Oriental women and indemnify that position and responsibility they
couldn't fulfill. Otherwise, there is no way to go back. No way to
If we resemble our Father and Mother, Satan cannot accuse us
anymore. We will be liberated. This is how liberation comes. Now such
a couple has come to exist for the first time in history, and in the
family level too. Like a stamp, we can mass produce it. It is that
kind of a time now. God and all things will give the same value to each
couple. Father was the first, but all the later ones will have the same
value. The main factory is the True Parents, who have the blueprint,
but the tribal messiahs, who are the branch factories, can produce many
copies. They all have the same horizontal value, and all connect
vertically to True Parents. All tribal messiahs have that formula. That
mission is the mission of the tribal messiah. You can save the whole
world that way. Horizontal expansion is no problem. When the Christian
world understands these concepts, how wonderful it will be.
So, this is how much God has invested to bring about True Parents.
Now True Parents give away the Blessing freely. We have to understand
the value and try harder to teach this. To arrive at this destination
God tried through Jesus, but failed and now through the Second Coming.
How much investment God made! We must understand. When Christian nuns
and priests meet the bridegroom, would they be married? Yes. What about
Buddhists, who practice strict celibacy? How difficult it is to start
After World War II, the Christian world represented the bride's
position. The bridegroom would come down vertically. After World War
II England, America and France stood in the positions of Mother, Cain
and Abel. Japan, Germany and Italy stood in the same positions on
Satan's side. If the three Allied nations had accepted Father, all
could have received the Second Messiah. The Messiah is vertical and
comes down with nothing except True Love. This is then manifested in
True Children. If those three nations had united and believed in the
Messiah, within seven years the kingdom of heaven would have come. The
year 1945 plus seven years equals 1952.
Woman represents earth and man heaven. If they united with True Love
all could have been solved, and during the seven years could have
spread all over the world, but it failed. All four thousand years of
God's history was lost. In 1945, the Allied nations controlled all the
world and if they had connected to the Messiah they could have created
one world under God with no problem, but everything was lost. Only
Reverend Moon and God were left. Father had to restore everything in
forty years. He could not sleep. Father had to go over every level,
tear down every wall.
At Jesus' time the nation was lost. Jesus returned and restored
spiritually twelve, seventy-two and one hundred and twenty disciples.
Father had to do the same with the Blessed couples. This broke down
Satan's world. The 30,000 Couple Blessing destroyed Satan's number six.
The tribal messiah goes in True Parent's position to connect their
tribe to the true blood lineage.
So centering on the tribal messiahs, God is restoring Adam's
position through their parents. The tribal messiah stands in Jesus'
position. The True Parents stand in the Second Coming's position.
Secondly, by going to their hometown, the tribal messiahs must
change their hometown from Satan's to God's hometown. God's home is
Adam's family. They must restore their parents and ancestors and
restore their hometown. They can do this by changing their blood
lineage through True Parents. Satan cannot do this. We do not need
religion. Once we restore a nation, the world will be no problem. We do
not need a specific nation. We don't need police. There will be no
fighting or war. We absolutely do not need this. Do you want this ideal
world? It's not so easy. The problem is the individual.
Centering on Mother we proclaim the women's world. The Korean women
are elder sisters. They can connect to Mother, then the younger sisters
can connect. You have to know these things clearly, otherwise you
cannot restore these things.
Anyone born after 1945 can be claimed by Father, not Satan. This is
the same as the Israelite nation. Those who were born in the wilderness
survived, all those born in Egypt died. You were born through fallen
action, but because Father was on the earth, it can be considered as a
mistake, not a repeat of the fall.
This is different from Satan's world. Those people can come more
easily to me. Those born before 1945 are in Satan's realm. Those born
after, are in the Parent's realm. If you make one mistake, you cannot
go into heaven.
After World War II the Christian bride world did not invite in the
groom. How much difficulty, pain and sacrifice it caused. During the
last forty years, the free world and the Christian world have been
wrecked. The big churches became empty. Look at Fifth Avenue and the
Empire State Building; God is not there. During the two thousand years
history of Christianity, their sacrifice built them up, but then in the
last forty years, there has been so much decline. Look at Judaism's
decline after Jesus' birth. They have been wandering for two thousand
years. How miserable was the death of six million people during World
How much is owed by the Blessed couple to True Parents!
We have to combine the Federation for World Peace and the Women's
Federation for World Peace. Also, we have to combine the religious
world, or else there can be no peace.
How much investment has been made by the True Parents towards the
Blessed couples? What is the biggest United States corporation? IBM. It
is no comparison to this foundation. We must understand this value
before we can understand our own value. The main root can connect
anything. We will become a branch to this tree of life; this is a
tribal messiah. How staggering it will be when this huge tree grows in
the next thirty to forty years. It will be millions of times more
valuable than the fallen tree. Are we going to live this life with all
of our might? We must cherish it. Get hold of your clan with your
teeth, hands, gums, whatever. Hold on to them. Once you let go, to
catch it again will be harder. Think about the historical value of this
investment. This is our destiny. Mission is destiny. No matter how hard
it may be, you cannot escape it.
God put so much into America, but didn't God invest more into the
Blessed couples? Yes. Is that reality or imagination? What about the
whole earth? God put more here. We can understand the value of true
man and woman. They have more value than all creatures. It's so huge,
it's awesome, isn't it? Each one of us, with that confidence, can face
any opposition. All opposition is so small. This is how Father thought.
God said, "I never saw anything like it before. You are like a
mutation." Has he been successful or a failure? (Successful.) Even
though Father thinks he is special, his deep wish is that his children
will do more. This is the parents' wish.
In the last twenty years we saw with our own eyes and heard with our
own ears, what Father has done. Are you going to shoot to perfection?
(Yes.) When I look at you I believe in your perfection. Father wants to
give you the gift of the title of Holy son. How much confidence you can
have in the investment that was made in the heavenly Blessed couple.
You have received True Parents' name. This was the first Sunday of the
month and Father will teach chapter by chapter.
Will the Japanese couples please raise your hands? Almost half. This
is not America, but Japan. Father has merged Japan into America. Do
Japanese women work harder than American women? Why? America belongs to
fair hair girls. Remember salt water will change fresh water to salty.
Try not to be outdone by Japanese. Which is more efficient, the
Japanese way or American? Japanese. Do you feel good that Japanese
take the head and you take the tail? You are like a grasshoppers, but
Japanese are like ants. The grasshopper and ant fable is pertinent
here. Why do Americans laugh so much? What are they so happy about?
They are like grasshoppers. Grasshoppers don't mind what others do,
they make something new. Grasshoppers will dance too much, then they
get tired. Orientals enjoy it to some extent, but then are ready to
All those who are going to go this way, please raise your hands.
Thank you very much.
