REVEREND SUN MYUNG MOON
January 2, 1996
World Mission Center
Translator Peter Kim
It has been a long day for you. When do you want to go home? Father is
leaving the country on January 5, in three days' time. The year of 1995 ended
the day before yesterday. Now we are beginning the new year of 1996. The days
do not change, and yet the year changes. People grow older and eventually
pass into the spiritual world. However, no one really remembers what happens
in each year or carries that memory with them. Each year people have plans.
Individual plans, family plans, national and world plans. Yet no one is
really aware of those plans when they go to the spiritual world.
If there is a one hundred year old tree, each year that tree grows
larger and age marks appear within the tree as the years go by and new
branches grow. Yet no tree remembers all of those expenences over the
years. Have you seriously thought about death? People usually die when they
are not expecting it. Since Heung Jin Nim entered into the spiritual world,
twelve years have passed, but Father feels as if it were only yesterday. In a
way Father repented because when Father and Mother think of those seemingly
short twelve years, Mother naturally considered that in twelve years Father
would become almost 90 years old. In that sense Father felt sorry.
It is an historical question and imminent task for us: how to achieve our
goal within twelve years, because God's providence is now blooming. This year
Father will become 76 years of age. How many years until Father reaches the
age of 100? Twenty-four years. How many months? 360 months. That sounds like
a long time. However, when you watch your children grow, the infant stage
may be now, but they grow up very fast. When they get married you will all
feel as if it were only yesterday that they were babies. Father feels the
same way. This twenty-four years will pass like one month.
You have made so many pledges of determination in the course of your
life of faith. When we first left our homes for the mission given by God,
remember the kind of pledges we made? If we do not fulfill those promises and
have to return home, how agonizing it will be for us. And the people of your
hometown, when they hear about your pledges and see you return empty-handed,
what will they think? Is there anyone who has confidence that they do not
have to join the spiritual world at any time? What if you should die tonight?
We have to think about this. The fact that we are still alive means we are
standing right on top of death. This means we are fighting against death and
are winning. That is why we are alive day by day. No one can guarantee to
win their constant battle against death. Some day you will lose the battle
and you will die.
In the mirror we may enjoy ourselves and feel that we are handsome or
beautiful. However, when we die this body will rot and decay back into the
soil and we will be left with nothing. How miserable. The Unification Church
movement is the most precious gift for any human being. This is the place
where you can purify yourself, and accomplish what God wants you to do. This
is the best opportunity for you to accomplish anything as a human being. Yet
when you left your home, you left promises behind you that you would become
a true person, a true hero, but in the course of your life on this path,
you didn't achieve these promises. Instead, you made a lot of mistakes and
ended up in the spiritual world where no Unification Church members are --
in other words, in Hell, while others have ended up in the Kingdom of God.
Later on your village people, your relatives and neighbors who have known you
in the physical world, will join the spiritual world and realize that you,
a Unification Church member, ended up in Hell. Imagine the kind of feeling
you will have to go through.
In that kind of miserable situation what kind of feeling would you have
within you? This is a serious matter. No matter how miserable you might
feel, nothing can be undone then. While working for God and the Unification
Church you were opposed and persecuted by so many people. Though you were
supposed to accomplish your life's goal, instead you ended up in Hell. When
you realize that you fell lower than non-Unification Church members, think
about how miserable a feeling you will have to bear. The course of the life
of faith is winning the battle with death.
The year of 1995 has passed. With the ending of each year we have to be
grateful that we passed through it. With what substance? Not because you
are still alive, but rather because of what you have accomplished during any
particular year for the sake of God. What kind of result have you achieved? If
you think about this seriously, you have to fight with yourself in order to
find one more extra day in order to accumulate more results for God. When
it comes time to go to bed at night and you try to squeeze one more hour
into that day which will cover one whole day of tomorrow, then you have to
accomplish. If by doing so, you gain one more extra day, what would you do? In
that extra day you earned, if you are able to convince someone who can then
move your entire nation, that means you are saving your nation. That one's
day result is possibly saving your nation.
This means saving your time in order to do the public work you are destined
to do, and disciplining yourself to follow the right course -- the course of
the life of faith that we all have to walk. Do you understand this? Everyday
we have to think about death. Today I am walking this way but if I suddenly
drop dead what is going to happen? Even if you drop dead in the middle of your
walking, if your determination was by going that way for one hour you would
win one day, you will be successful. Unification doesn't come through the
entire course of your life. Unification comes in one particular moment. If
you have an archenemy for example, but you say one word to melt his heart,
in that instant you will become friends. Then unification comes about.
Whenever you finish your mission at the end of the day, please think that
through your action you want to add one more hour of success to that day.
When reaching their seventies and eighties people have a general sense of
when they will join the spiritual world. Those who have important missions to
accomplish, like Father or other big leaders, are under so much pressure. They
have a general consciousness of their death. Particularly those exiles who
are caring for and loving their countries. They have sleepless nights so
they can predict their future.
Father's life has been so tumultuous that he has been imprisoned and
tortured many times. In each particular moment while he was being tortured
and imprisoned, he thought that he must not die, because Father knew who was
to be responsible for the course of humanity. Therefore, he felt he could not
die. Even on the verge of death, if you truly pray and shed tears which can
lead you beyond death, then God will come down and help you. Do you understand
this? Torture and suffering are not the problem. Rather, you have to make
sure that you accomplish your mission before you die. That is the question
all the time. That is a fearful mission. Have you really thought about it?
Please remember the day when you truly dedicated yourself to God and
truly worked for the sake of the whole of humanity. Those days should be
remembered by you. If you remember those days and the high level life of
faith that you began ten years ago and yet you feel differently from that
time, then you have to repent. You need to reflect deeply within yourself
and ask why. It is obvious that there is a difference between your effort
in giving to the public mission then and now.
We know the terminology of restoration of the cosmos. That concept includes
the liberation of God. When it comes to the restoration of the entire cosmos,
have we stood in the position of restoration of the cosmos for even one single
day? That is the question we have to ask ourselves. If not, then what does
the restoration of cosmos have to do with ourselves? We have to sacrifice
ourselves and go beyond death in order to be connected to that particular
cosmic mission. Otherwise we do not have anything to do with it. We cannot
travel just horizontally; our life has to travel vertically upward. As you
continue your life, don't expect it to become easier. Rather it should become
harder and steeper.
The course of our life is one where we have to build bridges through
sacrificing ourselves so many times, giving our devotion and life in order
to do so. On our own we cannot complete our goal of scaling this vertical
ladder. Therefore, as we continue to climb the ladder, with each step we have
to shed our genuine tears in repentance telling Heavenly Father that we want
to do our absolute best to climb the ladder, though we are unworthy to do
so. From this position, we can beg God's assistance. That is the only way that
God will come down and help us to accomplish our mission. Do you follow? You
cannot retreat from the course of climbing this vertical ladder. If you fail
to accomplish your public mission then you will be criticized. If you cannot
climb up further what shall you do?
If you feel that you are unable to go one step further, then you have
to determine to sacrifice your life in order to reach another step. When
you are in the position of feeling stuck and unable to move another inch,
then you have to remember the kind of course God has walked all throughout
human history. God, who lost His original Adam and Eve, has not been able to
restore them back completely, even after 6,000 years. When you think of this,
you will feel that you can go beyond death. As soon as you feel God's heart
of agony and you shed tears because of that realization, then you will be
lifted up and go beyond the goal that you are trying to reach. Because God
will help you. Unless we reach the point beyond our death we cannot receive
help from God.
After Father leaves this country on January 5, he plans to research
the ocean front in South American countries, such as Argentina, Uruguay
and others. When Father thinks about these projects he realizes that they
will make him fatigued. Ordinary people might feel that when they are tired
they should rest, but Father feels challenged to go through the fatigue and
accomplish. Father's thinking is this: if in a particular boat there are ten
of us strong people, yet even if nine of the others collapse in the midst
of the course, I cannot because I have the biggest mission. God likes such
a person. When we think in a self-centered way God does not help us.
You ladies feel good when you apply make-up to your faces. When you
are dressed up and made up and you leave your home, perhaps you meet a
woman wearing rags and no make-up on her face. What do you feel when you
see her? Do you feel embarrassed? Even in an encounter with such a person,
you should be able to feel that she is like your mother, your sister, or
your daughter. That is the key -- how to generate that kind of heart --
because God's heart always goes out to such people.
Father has experienced many different types of prisons. Therefore Father
has seen people who were so hungry that once they got some food they collapsed
and died. Then other inmates would take the food from the dead person's mouth
and eat it. If the parents of that dying inmate were there, do you imagine
they would take out the food from their dying son's mouth and eat it? (NO)
If you have such a parental heart, then all the inmates of that particular
prison would honor and respect you naturally. While Father was in Hung Nam
prison in North Korea it could be so bitterly cold in the winter time, if
you spit, your saliva would freeze even before hitting the ground. When the
prison uniform was given out, it was very thin material. One shivered all
night. In that kind of environment how can one generate a parental heart to
the inmates to the point of being able to take off one's prison uniform and
give it someone else? That is the key. God comes down to that kind of place,
that kind of heart. Even if you take off your jacket in that severe weather
and give to another, you don't die.
Among 240 million Americans how many of them have that kind of serious
parental heart? Father really wants to know if we truly consider the Will
of God as my will; if we truly consider the True Parents' will like our
own. Do we consider the Will of God as something separate from ourselves? If
we consider this Will of God as belonging only to God, or as True Parents'
goal, then we have some distance because it is relative to us. But when
we feel that it is our own will, then there is no distance. God has been
seeking the restoration of the original Adam and Eve. However, He is not
seeking them from some place distant but rather from within "myself."
That is the attitude that we should have.
What kind of course do you imagine Father had to go through in order to
determine the cause of the Fall? Have you thought about it? When Father
truly felt the heart of God at the time of the Fall of Adam and Eve,
Father immediately traveled to the original time when God first felt that
agony and heart. That painful agony came about at the point of the Fall of
Man. This pain itself forms a subject and object relationship. Therefore,
Father concluded that the Fall took place due to the misuse of love. What
kind of agony have you experienced because of the Will of God? If you truly
feel the pain at not being able to fulfill the Will of God, your heart will
travel to the point where you can find your object.
In the course of the providence, whenever Father makes a decision it is
the correct one. Father does not take chances. He doesn't act on whim. Once
Father is connected to God and figures out what is the most agony that God
has, then Father immediately travels to that spot and can make decisions
based upon that situation. Then just as God has no friends, Father has no
friends. He is alone. That is why Father always feels that he has to do
everything himself. Since God's dispensation in South America began one
year ago, just imagine how much work Father has accomplished in that year.
Even when Father decides to have a conference on a certain day, everyone
around Father tries to delay in order to have more time to prepare. But Father
alone insists to go ahead, with or without enough preparation time. Because
Father knows the timetable. If they truly understood what Father understands,
they would be in an even greater hurry than Father. But they are so ignorant
of the providential timetable.
Walking through this course of dispensation, Father has trusted our
members just like his own sons and daughters. He gave much responsibility
to many members. However, many of them have failed Father.
When Father looks at you all, there is no one who is standing straight
in front of the Will of God. Can you confidently claim to have been standing
straight for twenty years in front of the Will of God? There may be thousands
of thin roots underneath you, but the central root should be just one. Where
there is one central root, there should be one central trunk, not two. That
is the shortest distant that you can travel. Not traveling in a zig-zag
manner. Since you joined the Unification Church has your life followed the
central trunk and central root? Usually, once we discover the truth we make
such strong determination to give our lives. However, within a couple of years
we lose our determination and we vacillate. Remember, from the central root
straight up the central trunk and on top of this central trunk God's throne
is waiting for you.
God has been seeking the true children who can inherit the throne of
the Kingdom of God in Heaven. What about the life of Adam and Eve? Did
they demonstrate a zig-zag path? That is why human history has become so
complicated. This is not conceptual. This central root, central trunk and
central body are still there, planted by God. But we have to find the right
person who can stand in that position. The twelve disciples of Jesus Christ
created their own denominations eventually. But the central root position
is only one. Who can take that position? No one.
It is incredible that the Unification Church finally came up with the
teaching of elder sonship, elder parentship, and elder kingship. That is
straight from the central root, central trunk and central body course. This
is a vertical relationship, but when we expand it on the horizontal level
it spreads out from the individual to the cosmos. The reason Father is
giving this special teaching is because we overcame one hurdle. Therefore,
Father will not have so much time to deal with you as often as he has been
doing so far. The time of the life of the elder son is different from the
life of elder parents. The period of elder sonship is different from the
period of parentship. When the period of kingship emerges it is a vertical
time. Unlike the time of family under parentship. As Father completed his
religious conference, Ecumenism in America, this realm is represented
by Abel. Now Father has to create the Cain realm which will be represented
by the secular world heads of state.
If Father gives them enough time to work and prepare to invite such people
to Washington, then they will just take it easy. However, if Father gives a
deadline of three days to accomplish then everyone becomes more desperate to
achieve the goal. It is a matter of your heart, attitude and determination. The
time is not the key factor. How about changing the date for the 3.6 million
couples Blessing Ceremony from November 1997 to November 1996? Would you not
become more serious about this event if that were the case? If Father gives
the goal of November 1996, would you become more serious about this event,
or would you be knocked down and give up? Even at the cost of our lives,
and even after we die we still have to accomplish this. No one is going
to help you. It isn't a case of firing the canon ball. The canon ball has
already been fired and is on its way. Now it is a matter of hitting the target.
Without doing this, how can we restore through indemnity the 40 years of
history or 4,000 years of history? We have to give our one hundred percent
effort. It is all a matter of your mental attitude. With the right attitude
God will come down and work through you. Do not imagine that you can sit eating
your meal in a relaxed manner. Eat while on your way to witnessing. You answer
well. But answering is not the key. Practice is the key. When people talk
much they usually have a lot of excuses to offer as well. Do you understand?
Whenever we want to plan an event, do we need to have three weeks, two
weeks or one week in order to prepare? God does not like long periods of
preparation. Father is giving you a practical tip here. Whenever a major
event is being planned by Father for the first time, remember that the event
may be held in the future as well. Therefore, you have to make plans for the
second and third conference already. Then when Father gives direction for such
an event you can tell him that you are able to accomplish it within three days.
Geographically speaking, Uruguay is in exactly the opposite position to
Korea. If you were to drill straight down in Seoul, Korea then you will end
up in Montevideo. (Laughter) It is on the same axis. How often has Father
been teaching us about the importance of axis. Already Father has thought
about this axis line with Uruguay down there.
Father has been practicing the philosophy of fishing here. He gave the
bait to Uruguay and then the bigger fish of Argentina, Brazil and Paraguay
kept their mouths open, waiting for a bigger bait silently. The bigger the
fish the bigger the mouth. Therefore Father is able to hook them more easily.
(Laughter) When such a central figure thinks in such a way for the sake of
God, and accomplishes such events for the sake of God, then that person will
never lose. In order to catch a big fish you need a big bait. When you throw
the larger bait into the water, there should not be people around making a
noise. It has to be quiet and when the big bait begins to sink the big fish
will bite it.
The country of Uruguay itself will become a bait for bigger countries.
In your case, to whom do you want to grab onto? Would you prefer to grab hold
of Father or a small local leader in your region? (Father) Suppose your local
leader kicks you out of the movement and persecutes you. Because of that would
you leave the church? Then you are like a small leader shrimp. That means
you are not even worthy to become chum. Are you bait or are you chum? What
are you? We have to think about this. When Father stands before an American
congregation of our members, he doesn't feel attracted by your appearance. He
doesn't see anyone who really appeals to him. Father is not an ordinary
person. He is different from everyone else. Do you understand that?
During the 1950s in Korea, there was a small village located approximately
55 miles from Seoul. In those days there was no nice paved roadway to that
village. But during that time there were three sisters from one particular
family who were praying constantly for Father to come to visit them. They
often received revelation that the next day Father would come to visit
them. Then they all prepared delicious rice cakes and cleaned their houses
and waited for Father. But Father never came. However, instead of giving up,
they continued to pray even harder. Upon receiving another revelation they
prepared again. They did this so many times. How about you? If that were
to happen to you, would you give up and destroy everything and complain
about the revelation? Whoever complains in the life of faith will have much
potential to fail in his life.
Do you have a tendency to complain about things? Someone said "no
complaints," but when he spoke he didn't look straight into Father's
eyes. If Father were to complain about his course of life during the past
forty years, imagine how much he would have been able to complain. Keeping
it all within his heart, what kind of agony would he store up? Father had
absolute confidence from the very beginning that this truth would save
America, Russia and the whole world for forty years. However, many people
didn't accomplish their missions. If Father had begun to complain about his
followers and the evil world that didn't accept him, what kind of miserable
life Father would have. Do you understand?
Do you think that we would have the opportunity to even know about the
terminology of True Parents? Yesterday Father conceptually wrapped up the
concept of True Parents for us, but if he really were to get into details
about the meaning of True Parents it might take thousands of years. We have to
understand this. Father's character is like a fire. No one can compare. Yet
Father is also most patient. This is where the value lies. That is why
everything has been possible up until this point. What about our lives since
joining True Parents? Have we complained during our life of faith up until
this point or not? Those who have not complained at all show your hands to
Father. The course of the life of religion is even going beyond death. We
are still alive. Therefore we cannot complain.
The Bible teaches us that those who are willing to sacrifice their life
shall gain it, while those who are trying to save their life shall lose
it. Suppose this particular sister here was so dedicated to the mission
that she forgot to comb her hair for one week and may appear as a crazy
person. Yet when God looks down upon her would He love her or would He
consider her as a crazy woman? (He would love her) If she is really such a
person, then when God comes down and sees her, should anyone laugh at her
God would punish them and give all the fortune of that person to her. We
all learned from Father Satan's strategy and God's strategy. God's strategy
is being attacked first and then claiming everything back from the attacker.
This is a mysterious strategy. On the contrary, Satan's strategy is to attack
first and ultimately to lose everything.
Our attitude in life should be to wait and understand that the road
of restoration is the one where we change the road of death into the road
of life. Even if it means to go to the extreme of sacrificing our lives.
Then you can survive and be successful. While you are alive you have to
experience death. If you have to walk such a path, imagine how miserable your
life would become. Because you have to become the partner of God who has
been giving and investing and forgetting. You have to become like God. The
life of faith is killing my present self and preparing my future self to
a greater degree. In our life of faith the most fearful thing is becoming
a leader. Do you follow Father? The leader's position is one of giving and
investing. Not taking from someone.
Father has now achieved his goal and is sitting on the top of the world
and he knows that many important people want to meet him. Therefore, Father
is retreating to the extreme countryside in South America and hiding himself
where there is water, untouched soil, trees and mountains, just like the
original creation of God. That is the place Father is going. Returning to
nature is Restoration again. Loving that water, grass and trees there just
as God loves them. God created all these elements as well as the fish in the
water. All different kinds of fish. If Unification Church members catch a
certain number of fish from some place, you have to pay them back by offering
a month's supply of food to the fish. Whenever Father goes fishing the first
fish caught is always released as a condition. Suppose Father is only able
to catch one fish per day. He still has to put that fish back. Sometimes
Father sets conditions. For example, if he is only able to catch one fish
a day, then as he releases the fish he prays: Since this is the limit I
am able to catch, by releasing this fish, then for one month I don't have
to release the fish. If I catch two small ones then I will release both of
them. If you have such a heart then the fish will naturally be attracted to
your bait and keep on biting.
When leaders fish together with Father, the leaders sit there for many hours
without being able to catch anything, while Father is catching many. Some
people believe there is magic in Father's fishing pole. Even when it comes
down to the level of fish, when there is a heartistic relationship, fish are
drawn. That is why it is exciting for Father. People who usually go with
him become tired within a few hours and try to run away. Yet for Father,
he never feels tired. He can fish the whole night long. Since Father is on
the topic of fishing, he is affirming his direction to you as you receive
four different types of boats. Leaders of each country, you must train
yourselves how to drive and repair boats and do fishing. If you do well,
Father may build a boat yard or factory in your country in the future.
Father is launching the project which your ancestors are doing.
Therefore, you have to have the attitude that since it is your ancestors'
project then we are the ones to first inherit this. You don't like to think
that way though. Some people tried to duck out when Father first tried to
bring them fishing with him. But now they are crazy about fishing. Even if
you want to go fishing, you cannot unless Father agrees. When you complete
your mission then Father will take you fishing. Father has completed his
work in other areas; that is why he is cultivating this oceanic enterprise
in many ways. But if Father were to go into details about his future plans
today you would all go crazy. Therefore, Father won't reveal these things
now. Even if Father tells you what is going to take place this year and next
year it is difficult for you to believe. If Father were to explain things
that may happen in twenty years from now you wouldn't believe it. Just as
the members who left twenty years ago heard Father's explanation as to what
would be happening today but they didn't believe. Now, standing outside of
the movement, they realize that these things actually came to pass.
Even though many of these former members have made their careers since
leaving the movement, they now realize that they won't be able to take
their money and career with them when they die. They feel stuck. All the
money and careers they have made has been under the condition of the enemy
Satan. As we continue to build the road to our physical death, are you
going to build a wide enough road so that 1000 people can line up and walk
with you? Is this an easy task to accomplish? If you take your life easy,
do you imagine that you will be able to accomplish this? As you continue
to build your road, have you thought of building it wide enough and fast
enough that True Father will follow your road and even God will travel along
your road through different nations? Do you want to receive True Father to
your country? Originally, those who were born outside of the United States,
please raise your hands. Most of you. Have you really thought about building
a super highway that God and True Parents can travel along with you?
Where Father is going don't you think that God will want to travel
also? Where there is a steep mountain and narrow valley you cannot build a
super highway wide enough to bring many people along with you. The secret is,
instead of building a narrow road due to the circumstances, you have to develop
many attractions there. Then they will come. If God and True Parents come
there you can show how to catch many different species of fish. Then you can
explain to God how, since He created so many varieties of fish, you can catch
them in all different ways. Then you can make God and True Parents excited.
When Father was recently in Brazil, he woke up before 5 A.M. and would go
out to the small rivers for fishing. People would wonder what he was doing.
The fish are limited in number and how much can one fish in the dark? But
they don't understand. We have to be trained in many different ways, so that
in the midst of a down-pouring shower, if God comes, you should be able
to take God out for fishing. Also, if there is a flood and land sinks,
you should still be able to find a certain spot to catch fish with God.
That much training we need. Suppose there is pouring rain, but one fish
bites your line and takes off. Then you have to follow that fish. In order
to catch the fish you will forget about the umbrella. You will forget about
being wet and still cling to your line and go after the fish. Unfortunately,
after all this effort, the fish you catch is only small. Then you will begin
to realize that in order to catch this little fish you got completely soaked,
broke your umbrella and that when you go home your family and neighbors will
You have to prepare yourself to be able to cope with that kind of
treatment from people. In that embarrassing situation you taste life. That
is the beauty of life. No matter how unfriendly or rigid looking a husband
one may have, when he falls into that situation he will have to smile and
be nice to his wife. Then she will realize that he is never this way, and
remember that particular day as a most memorable day. Thinking power is a
great thing. When you have that kind of variety of experiences you can make
yourself a versatile leader. You will be able to lead in any circumstance. When
someone is crying you will hold onto his ear and slap his face. Naturally,
he will rebel against you for taking such action. Then you have to give him
a nice reason such as, "you look exactly like my elder brother and he used to
slap me a lot. I wanted to kind of pay him back so I slapped you." That will
make him smile or laugh. That is how you can instantly become close friends.
If someone keeps acting like a big shot and boasts about himself, keep
on praising him until he reaches the top. Once he realizes there is no way
to go further up, he will plummet to the bottom. That is the time you can
step on him. This kind of practice of life causes every kind of people to
like Father. Not only Unification Church members. Fishermen, miners, farmers,
even thieves like Father. Those thieves could sit down with Father and after
listening to him speak, get up and leave without stealing anything. Don't you
think this is an exciting life? Those who want to accompany Father on a fishing
trip, raise your hands. If you want to be eligible to do this then establish a
fishing club consisting of fifty or more members. Minimum membership is fifty.
If you become successful in forming such a fishing club membership, then
some day Father may call you and tell you to bring your club members. You
don't need to bring fishing rods, bait or anything. But you still have to buy
the tickets. (Laughter) Then Father will take you and your club members to a
particular spot where you can catch big fish. Are you interested? Father will
open his eyes and watch you. Those of you who are confident to build such a
fishing club with fifty members or more raise your hands while closing your
eyes. Father is counting now. Keep your hands up. Please translate for the
Japanese members to help them understand what I am saying. Keep your eyes
closed. If you truly feel that you want to do it then please show both of
your hands. If you have good fishing boats in your country you can digest
up to thirty people at a time. By doing so you can train them.
Father will establish a focal point, something like a headquarters office
to where you can report regarding your fishing activity. Where there is
potential Father will send his representative to further investigate what
kind of fish can be caught at your location. Then we will send tourists
and sightseers. As Father predicted, in the near future, the world will be
attracted by this industry.
Have you heard the great news regarding the Il Hwa soccer team of
Korea? (Yes) Three consecutive championship victories. In this third
year, after they won the championship in Korea, they were sent out as the
representative team of Korea and won the Asian cup again. (Applause) We are
referring to professional soccer matches with Asia. As a bonus, Father is
inviting these Il Hwa soccer team members to Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay
and Father will provide a match with the national teams there. (Applause)
Now we shall organize the fishing clubs. Those who raised their hands today
to form fishing clubs in your countries, please provide your names on the list
before leaving. When you have the opportunity to go on a fishing trip with
Father do you want to cover about ten miles from your home town and go fishing
or do you want to go as far as you can with Father? How far? One-day course
or two or three-days' course? (One week) How about those who are willing to
go around the world with Father? Raise your hands please. Go ahead and form
your clubs then. This year of 1996 Father will call upon you. Four or five
teams at a time may be called to Montevideo. All the fish that you catch will
be bought back with the top price. If you really know how to calculate plus
and minus, how many fish you catch and how much money you can earn, then you
can become successful. Then wherever you go with your club members you can
always rent a boat at a cheap rate and have money left when you return home.
Whoever reaches up to 500 membership will receive a mold of the Good Go
boat in order that you can build your own boats in your country. Eventually
there should be all 163 nations building boats. Then you can sell the boats
and make money. Right now these boats are being built at a shipyard in Korea,
but when the time comes you will be able to build your own boats and make
money. In the near future there is a plan to build submarine villages. We
will have submarines under the water with five or ten families living there
together. Anytime you want to move from the Pacific Ocean to the Atlantic
Ocean you simply sail there. This time is coming and we will do this.
The people living on the land will observe that a particular submarine
village submerged over a month before without surfacing and so they may
all be dead. However, when we have submarine villages, we will have small
holes in the wall where we can stick out our fishing rod whenever we need
fish. Are you interested in this life?
The big shots of the world have already covered the famous places of
the world. There are beautiful beaches in Rio de Janeiro. There thousands
of people will pour to the beaches in season. When they are in the water
swimming they often urinate in the water. Those who are guilty of urinating
in the ocean while swimming, raise your hands. You are laughing which means
you are already guilty of this.
Suppose there is a beautiful beach with clean water and tens of thousands
of people come there to swim. Then a newspaper reporter comes and takes a
sample of the water and has it analyzed. If the result shows that ten percent
of the water is urine then immediately people will stay way from that beach.
Then where else can they go? Once they come to learn this information through
newspaper articles they no longer will frequent the well-known beaches. Rather
they will go to hidden, untouched, small places. Therefore, they need small
airplanes and small landing strips in the remote countryside.
Actually, as long as there is land it isn't so much of a problem.
In South America Father saw places where it took a bulldozer one week to
create a natural landing strip. These small planes are able to land on the
grass or even sand. It isn't so much of a problem. In the near future we
will have many small airports throughout the world. Unification Church
members will be in charge of operating them and you can live your lives on
that income. Also you can go wherever you want to go. Because you are in
charge of the airport airplanes have to come and land there and if they are
not full they will give you a seat.
The time for automobiles is passing away. Soon we will witness the small
airplane era. Small airplanes are not so expensive actually. In each country
the most beautiful and scenic areas are in the remote countryside. Therefore
if we were to build small landing strips in such locations and have our own
privately owned resorts then people will come and visit. We are living in
such a time when we don't have to own these airplanes. We can charter small
planes and use as many as we want.
Suppose we have small airports in 160 nations in small scenic and
beautiful resort areas and a tourism guide book showing all the different
locations with information and photos. Then once you have your fishing club
membership up to fifty people or more, once again you take them to different
locations throughout the world. Within five years the club membership will
expand to hundreds of people. (Applause) Once they come and have a wonderful
experience because of the good service and friendly environment, they will
be totally amazed.
The time is coming soon when there will be dozens of cruise size love
boats and dozens of small submarines and helicopters. Then the love boat
cruiser will drop off a group of people here and there around the world and
they will spend a week in each place. Then as the boat comes around they can
be picked up again and another group dropped off. This kind of sightseeing
arrangement can be made. Isn't it exciting? Those who have enough money won't
have to remain in one place. They can travel to the remote countryside of
the world and do their work at the same time they are enjoying their lives.
Suppose one company buys twenty round-the-world tickets. It doesn't have
to be limited to one person using all the tickets, but rather all the company
directors and executives can share the tickets and go wherever they want to
go and enjoy their lives. When you have a number of boats you can share the
boats to also travel wherever you want to go. The route can be decided by
yourself from north to south or east to west. This will also include hunting
expeditions. For hunting purposes we can create animal farms of even tigers,
wolves and lions. We can raise them and ship them to wherever we are going
to do hunting. It is just a matter of shipping them from one place to another.
We will cultivate fish farming for the sake of fishing. All manner of fish
can be farmed so that people can catch whatever type of fish they want. If
one place has only three kinds of fish we will be able to connect it to
another fish farm that has a larger variety so eventually people will be
able to fish for a greater variety of fish. Father's plans are limitless.
Where there is hunting and fishing then we can also create a soccer field,
tennis courts, volley ball courts and even a playground like Disney World.
When soccer teams have to travel to play matches, they don't necessarily
have to fly. Rather, they can take the love boat on the way. The reason for
the idea of submarine villages is because there are so many restrictions
due to national boundaries worldwide. If you have a submarine you don't
have to be bound in that way.
You should know by now what God's future plan is. The time is now right
where we shall not need school buildings nor office buildings. Wherever you
go you need only have a laptop computer and you will be able to communicate
with everyone. You can swap your office workers from one place to another,
maybe fifty at a time. You will not be restricted by one particular bit of
information whatsoever. The revolution of information and transportation
technology has broadened the human horizon so widely. Video tapes will be
utilized for the purposes of education. Then you can study whatever you
want to at any level. That is why Father has been combining and organizing
scholars from all over the world, and also newspaper organizations, in order
to disseminate our message. Are you interested in all of this? (Yes)
Do men like this better, or women? You American women claim that more
women are interested. This means you need to learn how to drive boats as
well as cars. Also submarines. Prepare yourselves.
What is this year's motto? Let's Be Proud of True Parents, and Love
True Parents. Since you heard Father's New Year's message do you now
feel that you know why we need True Parents? (Yes) We must understand
how many murders, suffering, struggle and persecution that history has
come through until True Parents appeared in this world. The notion of True
Parents existed even before creation. That was the standard God wanted to
see. When God lost the name True Parents because of the Fall of humankind,
what agony and suffering God had to go through. This is a reality.
This is Father's written direction to you for 1996. Write it down now.
January 1, 1996 New Year's message: Let's Be Proud of True Parents
and Love True Parents:
I. Let's be proud of True Parents.
A. The original standard of the purpose of creation is True Parents.
In other words, True Parents are the center of all of creation. Do we
want to stand on God's side, being proud of True Parents or standing on
Satan's side? Instead of Satan's side, let's say human being's side or
Unification Church's side or God's side? (God's side) God never had the
chance to be proud of True Parents upon that original standard. If Adam
and Eve had perfected themselves and become the original standard of True
Parents then they would have become the pride of the entire physical world
as well as spiritual world for eternity. On God's side we should be proud
of True Parents and place ourselves in the position of parents to be proud of.
B. True Parents are the purpose of God's absolute love.
C. True Parents are second God.
Don't you think that we should be proud of True Parents? (Yes) The more
proud you are of True Parents the greater you will become in terms of scale
and size. If you do so at the village level, you will become famous in your
village. Whereas if you do so at the world wide level then you will become
a world leader. People will pay attention to True Parents and to God.
D. True Parents are the model of the heavenly family.
True Parents are the model to build the heavenly family. In other words,
without True Parents we cannot build a heavenly family.
E. God dwells with True Parents and True Parents become the cornerstone,
or foundation to build the Kingdom of God on Earth as well as in Heaven.
F. Let's be Proud of True Parents so that all of the creation, humankind
and even God Himself can be happy to hear that news.
G. Centering upon myself and my family, let's prepare to expand the realm
of the Blessed couples.
This means we have to bring the victory for 3.6 million Blessing due to
take place next year. Upon the completion of our family we should be proud
of our tribe, our society, and so forth.
II. Let's love True Parents.
A. Let us love True Parents beyond the level that Abel was made an offering,
and love the enemy.
Because we all carry satanic blood lineage, we don't have any direct
connection with God's blood lineage. In order for us to be qualified to enter
the Kingdom, we have to love our enemy's children more than we love our own
children. This will be the condition that we can be connected spiritually to
God's direct lineage. That is the level we are addressing here. Originally,
man was supposed to become God's true children who would naturally have a
direct connection with God.
Since God's creation, human history consists of thousands and thousands of
years. Yet only 4,000 years ago the foundation for God to begin the history
of restoration began. Why? It was the time of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Not
because God had no interest in restoring humankind earlier. Humankind
received God's love enemy's lineage. Put yourself in God's place. You have
your fiancee whom you are going to marry tomorrow and tonight your enemy
appeared and snatched your fiancee away from you. That man then becomes your
love enemy. After several years he and your former fiancee return with their
children, your enemy's children. What kind of animosity and hatred would
you hold against your love enemy?
When you face the children of your love enemy you still should be able
to love them more than you love your own children. That is the only way to
restore this lineage. Do you think that it is possible for you? What do you
think? Without question it is very difficult. In front of God there is only
one Adam and one Eve. According to the Principle He cannot create other
ones. Therefore, He has to restore them back to the original state. Even if
you offer your love to your enemy's children more than your own children,
don't you think the concept of the enemy's children will remain with you? Will
you be able to completely eradicate the concept that they were your enemy's
children or will you constantly struggle with this feeling? Which way? You
will remember from time to time, will you not? That is why it has taken tens
of thousands of years. Up to ninety percent that feeling was eradicated
and then came back to the original point again. That repetition went on
God's heart is a million times purer than our own hearts. Once that scar
was engraved in God's heart because of the fall of man it couldn't be erased
so easily. Do you follow? That is why God had to have Abel sacrificed. Abel's
blood was shed in order to save Cain. Throughout history Abel, on God's side,
sacrificed himself, begging God to love Cain more than God loved Abel. That was
the way God's heart began to melt. On the other hand, think that by losing His
children over and over, God's heart gained thousands of scars and dulled His
sensitivity. At the time of Abel's sacrifice, Abel's appeal to God suddenly
inspired God to be able to embrace Cain. That is the way you can overcome the
agony and sorrow and embrace and love the enemy's children more than your own.
That process should occur from the family, nation and world level. Do you
understand Father? Jesus taught us to love our enemy. However, loving our
enemy is not so difficult. But to love our enemy's children more than our
own beloved children is more difficult.
B. Let's love True Parents more than you love your own family members.
God's heart when he loved and embraced Cain is included here. Just like
Abraham's heart which enabled him to sacrifice even his only son Isaac. The
heart that enables you to sacrifice your own son with your own hand, because
God's love is always restoring, embracing and loving Cain. Within yourself
there is always the Cain aspect which is represented by your body. Throughout
your entire life your Cain body has to be sacrificed. That is the way you
can comfort your heart, the Abel part of yourself.
C. Let's love True Parents more than you love your own country.
In order to restore your country you have to love True Parents more than
D. Let's love True Parents more than God loves the world.
God loved this world so much that He sent His own begotten son. Number four
tells us to love True Parents more than that.
E. Where you live the life of true love is the foundation upon which God
will dwell together with you and you will participate in God's work.
III. After being proud of True Parents and loving True Parents, let us
give thanks to True Parents, because True Parents are the ones who lead you
to save yourself, family, nation and world.
A. Let's give thanks to True Parents for being able to meet True Parents.
All throughout the course of human history, no matter what people may have
desired, they had no opportunity to meet True Parents. But comparing True
Parents' physical lifespan in this physical world it is like one small dot
on human history. This is the particular time period that we are living with
True Parents. Therefore, we should give thanks for being able to meet True
Parents. The fact that we are able to meet True Parents in this particular
time period is a miracle of miracles.
B. Let us give our thanks to True Parents for the fact that we learn
from True Parents all the truths we need to restore ourselves and build
the ideal world. Therefore our lives should be filled with thanks at all
times. Just as we return thanks to our spouse whom we love, by the same
token we have to return our thanks to True Parents.
C. Let us give our thanks to True Parents for showing us the way to become
filial sons and daughters, patriots, saints and holy children.
Remember the main numbers: I. Let's be proud of True Parents; II.
Let's love True Parents; III. Let's thank True Parents.
We must remember this. This is our mission: to let the world know whom
we are proud of, whom we love, and to whom we give thanks. Let's be proud
of True Parents, Let's love True Parents and Let's thank True Parents, in
detail. Through this teaching we can solve all individual, family, society,
national and world problems. Even the problems of the spiritual world as well
as cosmic problems can all be solved with this teaching. We should make a lot
of stickers, pamphlets and posters and spread it all over the world. (Applause)
Whenever you have time, go out with a bunch of posters and place them on
any open space. That is your job. Do you understand? (Yes) We should be more
professional than worldly advertising companies. Advertisers come up with
all manner of slogans for the purpose of making money. We will do this in
order to save people. Therefore we should do better. From now on there is
a separate direction. Advertising and spreading Father's name is for the
purpose of bringing more people to the next Blessing.
IV. Go over the goal of the 3.6 million couple Blessing
Our goal is 3.6 million couples. The more detailed title is 3.6 Million
Couples Blessing. While we are being proud of True Parents, loving True
Parents and thanking True Parents our goal is to reach 3.6 million couples
for the Blessing. Do you follow? (Yes)
A. Completion of Tribal Messiahship
We must complete this responsibility. Whatever country you may live in,
there is a head of state, a Cain-type king. As a tribal messiah you are in
the position of Abel-type king. You should therefore be able to educate your
Cain-type head of state. That is your original mission as tribal messiah. On
the worldwide level, Father is the Abel king of all the 160 nations. The
purpose of Adam's family and Jesus' was to secure the kingship. But they
did not fulfill this. As you know, Jesus failed on the national level
because he was unable to establish his family. Father is sending you out
as a tribal messiahs to 163 nations. Each of you are in the position of a
national Abel-type king. Therefore, you are the one who has to fulfill your
mission as a national messiah there. Abel king of your nation.
The original Adam was in the position of the family level messiah and
Jesus Christ came as the national level messiah. However, Jesus was unable
to establish his family. But based upon the victorious foundation of True
Parents at the worldwide level as the Abel king of all 160 nations, you
have the blessing to form your own Blessed family. Sent out to the 160
nations in the position of Jesus Christ who establishes his own family
and stands in the position of Abel king of each nation, you are, in a way,
in the position of the second Adam and Father is the perfected third Adam.
You are now going to restore the nation of Israel.
As you go out to 160 nations you will represent each nation as an
Abel king and when this entire 163 nations are restored together then at
the worldwide level Father will sit on the throne as the Abel king of the
entire 160 nations. You will sit underneath in the position of national Abel
kings. Please pay attention. This is very important teaching. As a Blessed
couple and tribal messiah, we are all sent out to each nation. Remember,
eventually these 160 nations will have to become united into one nation. One
Israel. At that time True Father will be the King of these united nations.
Even before that stage comes, as you work in each nation you will be working
as tribal messiahs in the position of Jesus Christ, the second Adam position,
while True Father will stand as the perfected third Adam and Abel king of
Eventually, when the number of countries which will totally surrender
and become united with True Parents increases, then all humankind will be
one nation and Father will sit as the Abel King of all humankind. We will
be standing at Jesus Christ's level. However, we will be more fortunate
than Jesus because we have established families due to the grace of True
Parents. Once that one world under God and True Parents is established
we will have state governors' positions all over the world. But there is
no place like that now. As tribal messiahs you are now establishing your
positions as state governors all throughout the world.
As a tribal messiah, you all have to restore the original Adam's family
level foundation, then upon that foundation Father is now sending you out
with your own family. This means you stand on Jesus Christ's level with the
restored family as Blessed couples. Your mission is to establish foundations
through helping leaders of the different nations to be united with True
Parents. In your own nation serve and honor True Parents as Abel King of
your nation. When nations such as this increase worldwide, all 163 nations
will be under Father, the King of kings. One World Under God and True Parents.
When such a time comes our Blessed couples will remain as heavenly citizens
there. All of the satanic world kings will be reassigned at state leader
levels, because there will no longer be a national concept existing, only
one nation. Therefore, state leaders and state governors will exist but
there will no longer be any kings. Father will be the only Abel True King
of all humankind. (Applause)
In order to accomplish your mission and lead your nation to True Parents
you have to begin by restoring 160 families. This is the first stage of
your mission. Then in your own nation twelve different tribes are to be
established. That is how you will go up step by step.
B. The restoration of 160 families.
As tribal messiahs this is the only mission you have to accomplish.
Restoring 160 families then you will naturally belong to any of the twelve
tribes. By then there will be twelve different tribes established and you
will be able to register yourself with one of those twelve different tribes.
C. The completion of Adam's family.
This means the first Adam's family level as a tribal messiah. As a tribal
messiah you have to complete that mission there.
D. The remembrance of Father's prison life.
As a tribal messiah, no matter what manner of difficulties you may
encounter in the future, nothing compares to the hardship of Father's life
course of imprisonment and persecution. Whenever you encounter difficult
situations remember Father's life course in prison. Therefore, you have to
become totally united with Father in heart and united with God.
E. The need of understanding or acknowledging the restoration of your
F. The tribal messiahs, in the realm of absolute environment, must resemble
the life course of True Parents and experience it by heart.
When Father refers to the realm of absolute environment, this includes
past, present and future.
G. Organizing prayer groups of 360 people in each nation.
Since tribal messiahs are sent out all over the world, there should be
tribal messiah signs hung out all over the world. The entire world should be
decorated with such tribal messiah church signs. In each team there should
be ten people per prayer group, praying in different locations throughout your
nation. Ten people in thirty days per month requires 300 people. But you will
have sixty more people so it will rotate continuously. Then if possible, twice
a month all 360 people should gather together and go over the details of your
prayer conditions. We are talking about prayer vigils of ten people rotating.
You all have inherited the tongil candle which should be used for prayer
conditions. Through this tongil candle prayer, all 360 people will become
totally united. Just as 360 days become one year.
H. Centering upon the Blessed couples we have to unite all the secular
This means your relatives and neighboring families to begin with
and eventually expanding this unification of families to your 160
families. Centering upon true families, we have to unite all those families.
I. We must establish the way of unification of the world by the year
2000. We have to make the entire world unified by the year 2000. We have to
provide the means or the way by then. We are entering into the time of mass
migration. Centering upon your 160 families which you are responsible for,
the time will come when this mass movement of humanity will take place. From
one nation to another. The time of mass migration means that the time has
come when Father has to re-shuffle in terms of structure of our leadership.
When 160 families centering upon their tribal messiah move to Korea then
the Korean people will have no place to go. Therefore they will have to move
to Africa. This kind of exchange migration will occur all over the world. At
the time of Stalin in the former Soviet Union, Stalin was the satanic messiah
figure. He actually tried to practice the migration method. For example,
moving 300,000 Korean residents from one section of Siberia to another, they
were dropped in the wilderness and told to live there. Kim Il Sung practiced
the same thing. But when our time begins it will be only voluntary. No force
will be used. Therefore, if America is unqualified to register they will
be the last. There will be no racial discrimination whatsoever. First come,
first served will be the rule.
Because of the Fall of Man God lost the first, second and third generation
because they all belonged to Satan. At the time of restoration, centering
upon True Parents as the first generation, now the second generation position
is held by tribal messiahs. Our responsibility is just enormous. We are
unable to fully comprehend how enormous. We have to become bridges. Do
you understand? The entire humankind was supposed to become the children
of God. Due to the Fall, all became the descendants of Satan. Now at the
time of restoration we all have to switch our position. Turn 180 degrees
toward God's side. That is the massive task before us in the field as tribal
messiahs. Don't you agree?
This is not Father's own thinking but rather the Principle of
Restoration. That is why Father tells us that mass migration will occur. The
Japanese cannot live their entire lives in Japan. They may have to move
someplace else. According to their order of registration on the list, the first
on the list will probably go to Korea, while the second tier will probably
go to Japan and third tier to Archangel country. In this way people will
move. Do you understand? That is how the course of restoration will take place.
One lineage, one culture, one tradition will be established. Do you have
any questions about it? In order to prevent any confusion or complexities
when this type of mass migration occurs, Father is preparing already through
international, interreligious, interracial Holy Wedding Ceremonies. Naturally,
all those Mafia and evil groups of people will be eradicated, chased out. Once
this heavenly sovereignty takes place, it won't matter if you have a million
dollar house or assets. Once your destination is decided you have to go. If
you want to secure the position of restored Adam, you have to go out to the
secular world and bring your Eve to be restored. The men are supposed to
move to some place and restore the women there for the Women's Federation
for World Peace. This is how you will restore the Eves.
If your husbands are being mobilized by Father to go to another country in
order to restore the women of that country through Women's Federation for World
Peace, then wives should remain patient and await your husbands' return. That
is why Father has trained you in all the tactics of fundraising. Who
is usually better at fundraising, men or women? (Women) That is right.
Therefore, when your husband is away don't go far away to do fundraising,
but stick close to your neighborhood and try to make your livelihood there.
In order to fulfill our mission we have to come up with a certain
determination. Father's next title is:
V. My Pledge
A. My pledge is to do my mission.
B. I will win victory.
C. I will bring the result. Without bringing the result your world will
be in vain.
D. I shall become the exemplary person within my country. This means
under the existing sovereignty or national flag. That is how you will be
connected to the world.
E. Tradition of True Parents, true teacher and true king in our daily
lives. This means, as Father has taught us, our conscience precedes parents,
teacher and master or king. Centered upon our conscience we shall establish
the tradition of True Parents, True Teacher, True King in our daily life
This is our pledge and determination today.
Father will not give you a timetable of when he will restructure the
leadership and move people around. However, someday he will do these things.
Father is giving you time, particularly wives, in order that you can prepare
yourselves on how to support your families without your husbands. Sooner
or later Father will mobilize your husbands to some other place for another
According to God's timetable, those who were born prior to 1945 must be
mobilized this time, because they belong to the Cain side. They belong to
World War II. Those who were born prior to 1945 were supposed to belong to the
Lord of the Second Advent. Directly following World War II, had Christianity
not rejected the Lord of the Second Advent, you who were born prior to 1945,
would naturally, automatically belong to the Lord of the Second Advent. Then
together with the Lord of the Second Advent, you are the ones who were
supposed to build the Kingdom of God on Earth.
At the time of Jesus' birth, the Romans were taking a census and each
citizen had to go to their birthplace in order to re-register. Likewise,
those of you who were born prior to 1945, after forty years of wilderness,
you are supposed to move with Father in order to return to your own home. Your
home means True Father's home. You have to follow Father like following
Moses. It is a big challenge, is it not? When the time comes for you to move
yourselves, those who have less property will have it easier. Therefore,
make sure that you lead a simple life.
This is the Will of God. I don't have a choice. Without accomplishing these
things how can we expect to restore the entire world so that no discrimation
exists? There is no way to do so. Our future generations must be able to
inherit heavenly tradition through us. But there is no heavenly tradition
whatsoever in this world. Therefore, Father established tribal messiahs and
sent them out in order to establish heavenly tradition in all the nations of
the world. If in fact, right after World War II had the 800 million Christians
of the world accepted Father as the Lord of the Second Advent and united with
True Father, tribal messiahship would have been established. Then the entire
world would have been restored overnight. It would not have taken a long time.
But because of the rejection by Christianity of the Lord of the Second Advent,
the last nation became the first nation. Turning 180 degrees. For example,
Japan was most miserable directly following World War II, but now Japan has
become the number one country economically in the world. However, if Japan
fails to accomplish her mission, then Japan will become the last once again.
The Christians of Korea rejected the Lord of the Second Advent; now as
the Unification Church membership grows and people from all over the world
rush into Korea, the Korean Christians will have no place to go. There is
no choice for them. They have to move from Korea. Don't you think that it
is logical? Where else can they go? They cannot continue to live there.
God's ideal of establishing the elder sonship and parentship and kingship
within the three generations of Adam and Cain and Abel, was destroyed by the
Fall of Man. Everything was lost. In the Last Days, centering upon the Lord
of the Second Advent, out of nothing Father has to create these different
generations as well as the restoration of lineage, true ownership and
heart. This restoration of heart represents restoring Adam's family. Unless
you have the same heart you cannot receive the Blessing. As long as this
Principle exists then there is no other choice but to build the unified
world eventually. Once you truly understand this truth you have no other
choice but to study Korean and master it as a language.
Suppose there are ten people existing in similar situations. If any one of
them speaks Korean fluently and understands the Korean culture, that person
will become the first choice when it comes to restoration. Another privilege
or advantage is having an international marriage. If Japanese people wish only
to marry with other Japanese then they will fall behind. This applies to all
nationalities. This is a very serious teaching that Father is giving. We need
a very clear understanding. When the time of kingship comes we all have to
re-register as citizens. Therefore we need to have a clear understanding of
what Father is teaching us. The era of elder sonship and the era of parentship
is now passing. We are entering into the era of kingship. We need to clearly
understand in order to be able to complete everything.
We will have many different tribal messiahs and they will all be registered
under twelve different tribes. This is a very senous matter. For example,
the Kamiyama tribe may now be registered under that name, but at the time
of this re-registration if some of the Kamiyama tribe members are left out,
for whatever reason, then once registration is completed they will have
no place to go. They cannot re-register in the Kamiyama tribe at a later
time. They will have to try to re-register under another tribe and will
encounter difficulties. Do you understand?
If the entire world had received True Parents directly folllowing World
War II, then the entire world would have been able to register. Even after
entering the Kingdom of God we all have to be mixed. That is why Father is
