Blessing and Ideal Family
by Reverend Sun Myung Moon
TRUE PARENTS AND GOD'S FAMILY
JESUS AND THE BLESSING
1. WHO IS THE MESSIAH?
From the time fallen Adam and Eve gave birth to their offspring, a
fallen family, tribe, nation and world were formed on this earth. God
has to find one person from this fallen enemy world. However, God
cannot find His beloved one from a victorious position. In order to
find the person whom God can appoint and use from this enemy world,
history had to go through wars repeatedly. In order to find that
person, God must stand in front, pioneering the environment, and must
tell him of His internal sufferings. God cannot but search for this
one person. This is why, behind history, over several thousand years,
God has been carrying out the work of searching for this one person in
order to reorganize the history of humankind filled with evil.
When we look at the providence of restoration, where is the concluding
point of this providence, which has mobilized many religious people in
search of one world of goodness? Before this world can be realized,
there must appear a nation, but a tribe must appear before a nation, a
clan before a tribe, a family before a clan, and one person before a
Then, who should that person be? Should it be a woman, or should it be
a man? Who should it be? It should be a man. From the viewpoint of the
Principle of Creation, God, when creating human beings, created Adam
first. Because God created Adam first, we must go through Adam. It is
written in the Bible that Eve was created from Adam's rib, but what
does this mean? This means that God created Eve from Adam as the
When we look at the history of six thousand years until now, it has
been a history in search of a man. It has been searching for a man.
This is because women are restored through men. At the time of
creation, woman was created after man; therefore, it is an
unchangeable fact that history is in search of a man. The principle of
history does not change.
What kind of a man could this person called the Messiah be before God?
If there were only one love inside God's heart, and all of this love
came together from the same starting point and was put together moving
in one direction, the Messiah would be the first person to receive
this love. This person is indeed the first-born son of God.
The Messiah is the eldest son of God to stand before God, born for the
first time through God's love. This is why Jesus, referring to
himself, said he was the "only son" of God. Being the only son means
to receive all the love. If God is the absolute subject, then the
Messiah comes to stand in the absolute subjective realm as a man. It
is a relationship of father and son. Therefore, this is a person who
conveys God's entire love to the individual, family, clan, tribe,
nation and world. The Messiah is the person who comes with the
qualification to receive the representative love as the eldest son of
God with a standard transcending all realms.
Who is the Messiah which Christianity claims? The Messiah is the son
who can inherit God's love. This is why the Bible mentions Jesus as
the only son. The only son is the only son of God. This means the son
born for the first time centering on God's love.
As what kind of person did Jesus come? Jesus came as God's son, or the
only son. He received the love due the only son. He was the only son
who could receive God's love for the first time. This is why "the only
son" mentioned in Christianity is a great word.
Because the first human ancestors Adam and Eve fell before becoming
perfect, without being able to form an objective realm, the Messiah is
the person who comes in the position to inherit ideal love, with the
qualification to become the ancestor for which the whole of humankind
has been hoping. There is no way to liberate humankind other than
going through the Messiah; this is why the Messiah can conclude that
"I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father,
but by me." And we Unification Church members have discovered that.
We need God's love. When an unmarried man and woman love each other,
they will defy even death in order to fulfill their love. Similarly,
when we become one with God's love, we will be able to practice God's
love. The unification of the world then will be realized
automatically. What is required for us as fallen humankind, then, is
God's love and that we become people who can love God
This will be realized when the Messiah comes and links God's love to
us. The Messiah is the person with a unified mind and body, who has
God's true love dwelling in him. He is also the person who does not
waver until he reaches God's love, preparing the new road. The Messiah
is the person who brings God's love, which can unify the world,
nation, family and individual. God's will is to send the Messiah who
can become the subject of love and build the world of love. God is
trying to realize this through religion; therefore, religion is
necessary and the Messiah is a being absolutely necessary to the whole
of humankind. This was the reason Jesus Christ said, "He who loves
father or mother more than me is not worthy of me." From this point,
Jesus can become the Messiah.
Furthermore, Jesus said that He was the "only son of God." This means
that He could receive the true love of God. Jesus also compared
himself to a bridegroom. This also means to form the standard of a
family having true love.
What kind of a person is the Messiah? Humankind lost true love through
the fall. Therefore, the Messiah is the one who comes to find true
love. In another words, the Messiah is the one who comes to restore
the lost true love.
What kind of a person is the Messiah? The Messiah is the reappearance
of a person with a character of unlimited value and unlimited
treasure. This is a person who comes to the human world having
dominion over heaven and earth and with a position that can never be
changed by anything.
God knows very well that man needs a reciprocal partner; therefore,
God had to send the most precious Messiah to this earth. Because God
loved humankind, God sent the most precious being, the representative
being who can touch humankind as a friend, teacher and father. This
representative being is the Messiah.
You should know that the Messiah is the only friend, the only teacher
and the only father to humankind. The Messiah is sent to this earth
with the mission of being the only one and the greatest being. If you
hold on to this Messiah while shedding tears, giving up your life, and
if you love the Messiah as your life, you can instantly enter into the
realm of the universally historical life and love of God. You should
know that this is the best gift of love from God given to humankind.
The Messiah is the true man for which God, man and all things have
been hoping. The Messiah comes as the substantial being of truth and
speaks the Word of Truth, but He speaks from a position of oneness
with God's love. The Messiah would act in a truthful way, but based on
the motivation of love. His life would not be one of formality, based
on rules, but would be based on God's true standard. His method of
saving this world will not be through this worldly means and
statistics, but will be a way centering on God's true love. That kind
of a person is indeed the Messiah.
From this sort of person, the true love movement will spread
throughout the world. This true person will find a wife, form a family
and, centered on this family, realize one clan, one tribe, one nation
and one world. This truly is the "desire of the whole" hoped for by
God, humankind and all things.
With what qualification did Jesus come? He came with the qualification
of a father. He came as the True Father of humankind, in other words,
as the true ancestor. However, he was not able to bring a True Mother
with him. Because the True Mother was taken by Satan, the original
man, even at the risk of his life, must restore the True Mother out of
the satanic world.
When the Lord comes in the Last Days and greets the bride, the bride
is liberated. Today, in developed countries, feminist movements are
developing, but they do not have a center. Therefore, Jesus has to
come again to become the center. If Jesus' mission was to be a savior
as humankind's brother, he would be able to continue his work of
salvation without coming again. However, because Jesus has to fulfill
his mission as the father, he has to come once again. The father
cannot be two persons, so Jesus has to come again.
What kind of a person was Jesus, and for what reason did he come?
Jesus was the True Parent of humankind with the mission of a True
Father. If Adam had not fallen, he would have received God's blessing
and become the True Father with Eve as the True Mother. However,
because of the fall, the Blessing was lost. In order to restore that,
on the foundation of four thousand years of historical preparation,
God sent Jesus with the mission of True Father.
In the entire universe, God created only one Adam. From the time God
created just one person Adam, God's desire started to expand. Then,
because it was not good for Adam to be alone, God created Eve. God
created Adam and Eve and said that it was very good. Because it was
not good to have just the vertical relationship between God and Adam,
it was necessary to make a horizontal object in order to form a
Therefore, in the providence of restoration, a being the same as Adam
should reappear on earth. This is the thought of the Second Coming of
the Messiah. If Adam does nor appear, Eve cannot be made Even if there
had been a human being before Adam, it was not truly human. It was the
same as clay. It was not a human being even if it looked like one.
According to the law of the ideal of creation approved by God, it
cannot be considered a human being. Only Adam is a human being as God
desired. To restore this through indemnity is the mission of the
Second Coming of the Messiah. He is the Messiah appearing for the
second time. When this Messiah appears, then for the first time the
Eve which God wanted, the bride, can be met.
As what sort of person would the future Lord come? Jesus came as the
second Adam, but the Lord coming in the future would come as the third
Why does the third Adam need to come? Because a mistake was made on
this earth; because an accident occurred on this earth and it must be
fixed. Therefore, an undamaged, new Lord who can repair this should
come. This is why you should always long for the time when the new
Lord will come and repair the accident.
Who is the third Adam? He is the third person who comes to this earth
with the name of the human ancestor.
We know that the Lord of the Second Advent will come in the Last Days.
Then with what kind of purpose will he come? The age of servant has
passed and the age of son has also passed. Therefore, the Lord coming
in the future will come as the Father. He will come in the glory of
the Father. What is He to do with that glory of the Father? He will
breathe into each human being the heart of the Father, not the heart
of the son. It is not the heart of Jesus; it is the heart of the
What kind of a person is the savior? He is the substantial being of
faith and hope in this fallen world. The purpose of your faith is that
you unite with the Messiah, who is the substantial being of faith, and
the purpose of your hope and the purpose of your love are also that
you unite with this person. The Messiah is the person who comes to
organize humankind and to restore the Garden of Eden. The person who
can completely dominate himself can dominate his world and his love.
And this person has hold of God completely, so the person who can
completely hold on to this Messiah can take hold of God.
You must know that there is only one problem which we definitely still
What is this problem? Where can this problem be solved? It can be
solved only by God's love. From where does God's love come? God's love
does not come from the false parents, but will be clearly realized on
this earth through the True Parents. In order for True Parents to
exist, there must first be a True Father. The person visiting this
earth with the personality of the Father, with God's love, is the Lord
of the Second Advent. It is he whom today's religious people place at
the center of their expectations.
2. JESUS AND THE BLESSING
The history of six thousand years was a history in search of what? It
was a history in search of one man. What was it for which countless
ancestors sought from the time of Adam's family until now, paying the
price of sacrifices? In other words, what was that suffering for? What
were they seeking? They were seeking one man, who is Adam. What were
they to do after finding that man? Through the man, a woman was to be
found. When God created Adam and Eve, He first created Adam and then
created Eve through Adam. Similarly, in order to fulfill the
historical responsibility to search for Adam, they had to fight
centered on God.
What kind of an existence was Jesus, born in the place of Adam? There
are numerous people in this world, but there is no one person
necessary to God. On this planet earth with so many men and women
living, the fist man to be born as the mediator of God's love was
indeed Jesus. Jesus was in the position to receive God's love. It was
not the position of the fallen Adam.
Jesus did not start from the fallen Adam's position, which cannot
receive God's love, but from the perfected position, which can receive
the complete love of God.
According to the Principle of Creation, after creating Adam, God
created Eve with Adam as the model. Therefore, unless there is a
perfected man who can be born centering on God's perfected love -- in
other words, unless there is a true man -- according to the law of
recreation, Eve cannot be found. Through the birth of Jesus, with a
man as the Lord, a God-centered movement in search of Eve could appear
for the first time on this earth.
Then how can Eve be found? Eve must be created through Adam. She
cannot be made at random through clay.
Jesus was born as a man in order to indemnify every failure after the
fall of Adam. However, Jesus cannot fulfill God's will by himself.
Even if Jesus made the Israelites inherit the complete content of the
providence, Jesus could not form a nation by himself alone. For Jesus
to form a nation, he had to first form a new family.
In order to form a new family, Jesus had to find a woman who could
represent all women on this earth. In other words, he had to find one
woman who could represent all the women on the national, world and
God's loving son must have a reciprocal partner. Where should he greet
his reciprocal partner? It is not in heaven. As the result of the
fall, Eve was lost on earth; therefore, the reciprocal partner should
also be recreated on earth.
The Lord will come as the man of character representing Adam before he
fell in the Garden of Eden -- in other words, Adam before getting
married. In the position of Adam in the Garden of Eden before the fall
and marriage, the Lord should get married. Therefore, after coming,
what did Jesus have to do? He had to find a woman, the True Mother.
In what position would the Messiah as Adam come? He would come at the
completion level of the growth stage. This is the position at which
one gets married.
Jesus came to the earth and spoke of a bridegroom and wedding feast.
Jesus had to find his bride. Why did he say this? Love is linked
between two people, a man and a woman. Is that not so? A universally
historical representative of man and a representative of woman, with
great hope, must form an original relationship which can attract and
involve God's love.
Jesus said he would come on earth again as a bridegroom. Then will
Jesus as a bridegroom be able to perfect love alone? If there were a
perfected woman such as God had been seeking and such as Jesus had
been seeking as his reciprocal partner, would it be sinful for Jesus
to love that woman? Would God stop Jesus from loving that perfected
Please think. If a loving son and daughter of a parent grow up and die
unable to marry, how would the heart of that parent be? Would it be
peaceful, or not? The parent would lament deeply, saying, "Oh, how
could you die without even being able to have a wife?" Parents will
intensify their heart one thousand times for the sake of setting up
their child's marriage. That is the heart of a parent. God is the
Through the Messiah, through the birth of Jesus, God now had come to a
time when he could feel the same happiness He felt at the time when
His lost son was born in the Garden of Eden. Then what should that son
do after being born? God does not need him to be good at fighting or
earning money. He should get married. However, did Jesus get married?
No, he did not. Why could he not marry? Jesus was well-prepared as the
bridegroom, but there was no prepared woman to be his bride.
What was Jesus' desire? It was to get married. If the people of the
established churches hear this, I'm sure they will fall down in
surprise. Jesus' desire was indeed to get married.
Why did Jesus have to have a wife? It is because human history began
with fallen ancestors; therefore, humankind has not had a true
ancestor. God's ideal of creation was to make the true ancestors hold
their holy marriage ceremony united with God's love. Through this, it
was the purpose of creation to make a family lineage formed from a
God-centered direct blood lineage. However, the blood lineage became
different. Therefore, no matter how much faith people living on this
earth had, they could only be adopted children. Adopted children do
not have the same blood lineage.
If Christians hear this, they will be amazed. Jesus was to get
married. If he did not need a wife, why was he born as a man? If he
did not need to have a wife, He could have been an asexual person, or
a woman. Jesus could have been asexual, changing to a woman or a man
according to situations.
Today, there are many people who commit their lives to such a lie.
When I ask, "Will the Lord come on the clouds? What would the Lord do
after coming on the clouds?" they say, "What would He do? What do you
mean by what would He do? I am only to follow everything the Lord
does. That's all." This is robbery. They are making their father and
mother suffer while saying that they themselves are good. Think about
it. The fall occurred on earth, so the restoration should be done on
earth as well. What is lost on earth should be found on earth. Are you
saying that it was lost in the air? It is a lie.
The Lord as the bridegroom should greet the bride. Then, what is the
Lord to do with the bride? They should form a family. When I mention
these things, people persecute, saying that the Unification Church is
heretical. But we will wait to see who is heretical and who is
orthodox, and who will perish and who will prosper; then we will know.
Was Jesus a man or a woman? The purpose of Jesus coming to this earth
was also the same. It is to perfect the great love which is the
principle of the universe. When he tries to perfect this love, a man
cannot do it alone, so it is necessary for him to find a bride. In the
Book of Revelation in the Bible, "the marriage feast of the lamb" is
prophesied. It refers to Jesus meeting his bride and them loving each
other. In the Garden of Eden, Eve could not become the subject of love
promised by God. Eve was caught in Satan's trap, leaving behind Adam
who was supposed to be her husband. A woman's mind is like a reed
swaying back and forth, so it cannot be believed.
Christians say, "Reverend Moon is teaching that Jesus had to marry.
Reverend Moon is a heretic." If Jesus was a man, he would have had the
feelings of a man, wouldn't he? To deny the physiological Jesus is to
say that Jesus is the same as the invisible God, and is not a
realistic Jesus. Believing this, Christianity is a false religion and
it will regress, while the Unification Church will develop because it
is a practical religion. Where can we find the core of love? Perfected
man has the inevitable destiny to meet a woman on his way. In other
words, man is born to meet woman. Therefore, man and woman are made to
meet each other. When a man and woman meet, God dwells in them like
thunder. When God dwells in them, then for the first time, the core of
universal love is formed. The power of love causes the supreme effect.
3. THE ORIGINAL JESUS
The fall is the same as being broken down. When something breaks down,
we need a repair factory and a mechanic. We need to be repaired as an
individual, as a family, as a nation and as a world.
Then, let me talk about the nature of an unbroken person, who has the
unified, perfected love, perfected life and perfected ideal, as God
originally intended. This is the person who goes the way of a son from
the time he is born until the time he dies, receiving the love of God.
Are you receiving the love of God? No, you are not. Sons and daughters
born with the love of God must marry within God's love when they grow
up. Then, they should give birth to a sinless son and daughter. Have
you ever given birth to a sinless son or daughter? Originally, you
were to have a sinless child and become a sinless parent and then a
Wouldn't God need a perfect king and queen on this earth also? Has God
ever enjoyed a time like that? God should have such a time after chas-
ing away Satan It is obvious that God wants to gather the individual,
family, tribe and nation completely and have a nation, people, sons
and daughters, and family, which He can love individually, as a
family, as a nation and as a world. This is what we could not realize.
Through the fall, we came to have fallen ancestors, fallen
grandfathers and grandmothers, a fallen father and mother, fallen
tribe, fallen nation, and a fallen world, and also we became a people
lacking any relationship to the unfallen world. The chosen nation of
Israel were the people formed to repair all these individually, on a
family level, clan level, tribal level and national level.
This was the purpose of Jesus' coming. Jesus was to come as a perfect
unfallen man and form a perfect family, becoming a perfect grandfather
and perfect King. God created two people, a man and a woman, as His
object. However, because they fell, God had to take them to a repair
Jesus as the perfect Adam needs a bride. A bride whom God can bless is
necessary. If Jesus had a bride and had married, would He have had
sons and daughters or not?
If Jesus had children, the numerous Christian denominations we have
today, Roman Catholic and Protestant, would not have formed. Would
Jesus have become the King? Jesus could not fulfill this dispensation
of God; therefore, He is to come again. The Jews, who were the first
Israelites, perished without fulfilling this mission, and the
Christians, who are the second Israelites, took over the mission.
God sent Jesus on the foundation of promising through the prophets for
two thousand years to send the Messiah centering on the nation of
Israel. The nation of Israel and its religion were to unite and become
one with Jesus, but because they could not unite, Jesus had to die on
If they had united, Jesus would have become the high priest of
Judaism. And then he would have become the King of the Jewish nation.
There is a problem here. Was Jesus supposed to be single when he
became a high priest and a King? No, he wasn't. If he were not single,
then what would have come about? There would have been a family
centered on Jesus. Then Jesus would have realized the mission of true
parent, which Adam and Eve were to have fulfilled without falling. If
a Christian minister is here, he must be surprised to hear this. I
myself also once believed in the Presbyterian Church and its view of
Jesus. However, when I solved the questions of the Bible, I realized
these facts. I was persecuted because I told these stories. However,
they are facts, so I cannot deny them.
Jesus was in the position of a perfected individual, but he, as a man
in the subject position, was unfortunate in that he did not have a
bride and leave the tradition of God's love on the family level.
Therefore, a family centered on God's true love did not appear on the
earth until now. No one could establish the true love of husband and
wife based upon the authority of the Messiah, nor the tradition of
true parental love and the true parent-child love of which God can
approve. If such a family had been formed, then, centering on this one
family, everything would have developed horizontally and vertically
through the process of history, automatically forming one world
centering on God's love.
However, as we know, Jesus himself could not form the tradition of a
family centering on God's true love. Therefore, the central foundation
where God, all humankind and all things can rejoice could not be
formed. Because one family based on God's love could not be formed,
there never formed the foundation for a true clan based on God's love,
a true tribe-level foundation, a national foundation and a unified
Two thousand years ago, Jesus came to this earth with the messianic
mission. Unfortunately, He could not fulfill that mission. Maybe he
was the first true son of God to come on earth, who had a movement of
love centering on the love of the true God. However, we must deny the
contention that he realized a true tribe, nation and world of God
based on that foundation. People believing in Christianity today may
oppose my words, but these are historical facts which no one can deny.
What was the mission of the Old Testament age and the New Testament
age? It was to seek the reciprocal partner (spouse) of the Messiah on
this earth. It was to create Eve for the Messiah.
When we enlarge the realm of Eve, which absolutely subordinates, and
if we receive the Messiah, who is the subject of love, in the midst of
welcoming all things, then everything will be linked automatically. It
was the mission of the Old and New Testament ages to create this
Originally, Jesus was born in the position free of Saran's accusation;
therefore, he was not supposed to be killed. Why, then, did he have to
die? It is said that Jesus had to die because of our sins, in order to
save us. That is ridiculous. Does the Son of God have to die in order
to save humankind?
Why did Jesus come to this earth and fail his mission? It was nor
because he could not speak all the words he was supposed to during the
thirty odd years he was on this earth. Also, it was not because he
could not do everything he was supposed to do with his followers and
their families during his three years' public course. The reason for
his failure was nothing other than that Jesus could not stand in the
position to be Blessed. The direct reason that Jesus had to go the way
of the cross was only secondarily because the Israelites betrayed him
and the Jews were against him. It was mainly because Joseph's family
could not prepare the day for Jesus to be Blessed. If that one day had
come, Jesus would not have died on the cross. Then as a conclusion,
what was the cause and the motive of the crucifixion? It was because
the Blessing was not realized. This is why Jesus had to die on the
If Jesus and his family had united completely, then Jesus would have
transcended the individual level, and the formation of the family
level would have been possible. Jesus was to marry in the midst of the
blessing of his parents, brothers and sisters and relatives, and new
children of goodness were to be born on this earth. If Adam and Eve
had become perfect with out falling, then a unified God-centered
family would have begun.
Jesus came with the mission to indemnify Adam's family, and Jesus'
marriage has this meaning. However, the foundation was not formed,
because Joseph's family could not fulfill its responsibility.
Therefore, Satan could invade Jesus and Jesus had to die on the cross.
The family which was to inherit the new blood lineage of goodness
could not start. Therefore, to indemnify the failure of the
Israelites, God until now has been working through Christianity to
form a world-level spiritual foundation.
What would today's world be like if Jesus had not died but had met an
ideal spouse, and they had become a husband and wife with love unified
with God, giving birth to children of their direct lineage? When
children of Jesus' direct lineage were born, would God have become
angry and scolded them, saying "You have sinned"? If Jesus' children
had been born, most of today's population could have been descendants
of Jesus. Heaven could have been formed on earth already through
God may think it important to save one fallen man, but that is nothing
compared to having a child of Jesus' direct lineage. Since the time of
the fall, we must reflect about whether God was able to have true sons
and daughters or grandsons and granddaughters.
Because Jesus had no foundation to stand in the environment, Jesus
left John the Baptist and had to go into the satanic world and
recreate the family and tribal foundation while fighting with the
satanic world. Even after that, the Jews did not believe in Jesus.
Therefore, Jesus could not form a God-centered family, and this
finally led him to the death place of Golgotha, saying, "I am the
bridegroom and you are the bride."
4. JESUS' RESENTMENT
Jesus was the true ancestor of humankind, but he had to die without
being Blessed. You all know this very well. This is the sorrow of
heaven and the sorrow of Jesus.
If Jesus, who came as God's only son 2,000 years ago, had han
(sorrow), what would have been its occasion? His sorrow would have
been over not being able to get married. The Korean word "chang ga"
(man getting married) has a very deep meaning. If we reverse it, it
becomes "ga chang" (the head of the family). When a man gets married,
he will become the head of a family, so this makes sense. In order to
become the head of a family, a man has to form a family with a wife
and children. Because Jesus could not have a wife, the history of
humankind became a tragedy. Especially the family of Zachariah and the
Jews came to walk the path of destruction.
Through Jesus dying on the cross, the Holy Spirit was also lost. Jesus
went the path of death imagining how his wife might have looked,
saying, "The reciprocal partner for whom I wished, or the figure of a
true mother for whom I sought, should be like this." This hope
penetrated deep inside his heart. He died thinking of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus died leaving his han on this earth. In order to dissolve this
han, the Holy Spirit must come on earth. This is not even written in
the Bible. Have you ever heard a phrase like "dissolving han"? The han
which Jesus could not dissolve has to be dissolved on this earth.
Jesus had the heart to love all humanity as a parent, and he had the
heart to save the whole of humankind through the Israelites. However,
Jesus had to die with this concept, leaving han in his heart. The
spiritual work to dissolve Jesus' han was exactly the history of
Christianity developing until today.
Whether or not Jesus was supposed to marry remains the problem. From
the point of view of original human value and the Principle of
Creation, Jesus was to get married. What was Jesus to do after getting
married? Jesus was to become a perfect man, completely unified, and as
a man who could realize God's full potential of creation, Jesus was to
give birth to his sons and daughters. However, Jesus was unable to do
this. This is the most important responsibility for a man, but Jesus
failed to fulfill it. Therefore, Jesus' lifelong hope was, as he
mentioned, "I am the bridegroom and you are the bride." Therefore,
throughout the providence we have been searching for a bride and a
bridegroom who can inherit all things, and for a nation and a world
wherein the bride and bridegroom can use all their power as
representatives of God.
God created Jesus as a man; therefore, Jesus desired to marry through
the Blessing of God. Jesus also wished to have a family and desired to
be called a husband and a father. You must know that God's and Jesus'
resentment can be resolved through you conveying the message that
today's Christianity appeared because Jesus could not form this
relationship and had to die.
In other words, the 4,000-year history of the Jews was to form a
foundation for the bride to receive the Messiah. Because Jesus said
when he died that He would come again to fulfill a relationship of
bridegroom and bride, Christianity has been preparing for 2,000 years
to be the bride.
What does the concept of the Son of God mean in today's Christianity?
And where can the Daughter of God be? Jesus finding the Daughter of
God would have transformed the history of providence. However, since
Jesus could not find the Daughter of God, there was historical
How was the Daughter of God to be found in the history of recreation?
The daughter of God was to be recreated through Adam. We must take
into account the fact that God created Adam's spouse from Adam's rib.
This does not mean that God literally took Adam's rib, but it means
that God created a spouse resembling Adam. Adam and his spouse were to
grow up to follow God's will. This was why Joseph's family and
Zechariah's family were necessary.
Jesus was to fulfill the ideal of bride and bridegroom and was to be
embraced in the bosom of God. Only then would Jesus completely restore
what was lost by the fall of the first ancestors, Adam and Eve. Adam
and Eve fell together, so two people must accomplish restoration. This
is why there is the Blessing ceremony in the Unification Church.
Jesus, without dying, was to form a relationship of a husband and wife
and was to Bless in the name of God his twelve apostles and seventy
disciples, and then the one hundred and twenty followers. Jesus giving
the blessing spiritually after his death is meaningless Jesus died
being persecuted and opposed without fulfilling his mission;
therefore, his resentment is still left on this earth.
Jesus himself was to form a family and become a parent of sons and
daughters of goodness. If Jesus had become a parent of a son and
daughter of goodness, he would have had offspring. If Jesus had borne
children, then Christianity would not have divided, but would have
become a unified group.
What has Jesus been doing for 2,000 years in the spirit world? Those
who went to the spirit world believing in Jesus are like the seeds in
the body of Jesus, who is in the position of a father not yet able to
get married. Those people are still in paradise, not able to go to
heaven, waiting for the bride of Jesus. This is because of heavenly
Then what do we need to do? The bride must appear and we must vow
through the bride. In other words, if we are not able to make the vow
with the bride, then we cannot claim the heavenly nation as our own,
and we cannot mention that heaven is the ideal world in which we will
live. Jesus could not marry, but if he had, he would have stood in the
position of a perfected man capable of having a child.
The Blessing is the hope of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit. When we
solve it, a new history can begin. Therefore, the Blessing fulfills
the hope of the whole. Jesus could not fulfill this mission;
therefore, he has to come again to complete his mission.
The Lord of the Second Coming will stand in the position of a
perfected Adam. Adam has to be born on earth and accomplish the course
of going through Eve and being Blessed. Without that, Adam cannot
claim his position as a perfected Adam. He must fulfill this mission
not only in heaven, but on earth.
5. THE BLESSING OF JESUS AND CHRISTIAN THOUGHT
When we look at the Principle of Creation, God first created Adam and
then created Eve centering on Adam. Therefore, Mary should have
supported her son and should have looked for a bride for him. Mary
should have done this, not only Jesus. Mary had to support Jesus and
had to look for the bride.
In this respect, we can understand that Mary did not fulfill her
responsibility. Mary told Jesus at the marriage in Cana in Galilee
that they had run out of wine, to which Jesus replied, "Woman, what
have you to do with me?" Jesus was saying, what does the other man's
marriage have to do with me? In other words, the time for Jesus to
have a wife had come and he was asking Mary why she had not realized
that. Mary did not fulfill her responsibility.
If Jesus had married, his sons and daughters would have been God's
grandsons and granddaughters. Jesus' sons and daughters would have
been God's family. Some people say, "Jesus is God Himself," but those
people are crazy. Those people are the heretics of heretics. They are
saying, "What does it mean for Jesus to get married just like us,
earthly people?" They would lose their hope if they understood the
Holy God got married. Why is that? If someone gets married, why would
he or she cease being holy? The most holy thing for man and woman is
to get married.
If Jesus had married and had a son and daughter, then who would have
become the Pope? Would a person such as Peter have been the one?
(Laughter.) No. The sons and daughters of Jesus' direct lineage would
have become the Popes. Then, naturally, Jesus would have become the
king of the world.
However, because Jesus, who tried to form a foundation on this earth,
died, Christianity lost Israel and could only realize the spiritual
Israel. Therefore, God does not have a nation in which He can prepare
His foundation. Are the churches a kingdom which Jesus can possess?
This is why the churches have been rejected.
The Unification Church appeared with this secret, so the Christians
who are in the position of servants are afraid and now oppose us. If
they want to oppose, they can go ahead. we can stay still. This is
similar to the Communists coming out to throw down the bourgeoisie.
They should be careful. Who will be thrown out? Will they be thrown
out, or will Reverend Moon of the Unification Church be thrown out?
They will be thrown out.
The problem is not the number of people. The problem is one person.
Why did Jesus have to die? If Jesus had married, would he have died or
not? If a woman from an established church hears this, she will be
astonished. She will murmur, "Jesus getting married ...." Everyone:
was Jesus a man or a woman? (A man.) If Jesus were a man, would or
would not Jesus have had the characteristics of a man? (He would
have.) Then if there was a good woman, would or would not Jesus have
wanted to marry her? There is no question about it. If there were time
today, I would answer all your questions, but there is no time today.
When I have time, let's meet again. You should understand this very
well through the Principle.
If you were born as a man, you were born knowing that there is a
woman. Then did Jesus, who was born as a man, need to get married or
not? (He should have gotten married.) If Jesus, who came as the son of
God, married and had a son and a daughter, what would they be? They
would be the grandsons and granddaughters of God. Would God dislike
looking at His grandsons and granddaughters or would He enjoy it?
There is no question about it. God would like it.
Then why did Jesus have to die? It was because Jesus' mother, Mary,
could not find Him a wife. This is why there is resentment remaining.
This was why Jesus criticized Mary, saying to her at the marriage in
Cana, "Woman, what have you to do with me?" He meant that her concern
was a nuisance. She was worrying about wine, when she should have been
preparing a way for her son. These circumstances drove Jesus into a
However, the Christians, without knowing this, are believing in
vagaries. Are they saying that they will go to heaven and become the
Lord's bride? In order to be a bride they must know everything about
the groom, from his situation and mission to the sadness and pain
through which he went, and then they must serve. I see people saying,
"Jesus went through suffering," without knowing anything, and that is
not right. We members of the Unification Church are different from
such believers in the established churches.
You must remember that Jesus stood before Mary and pleaded in tears
three times. Jesus' mother, Mary, did not listen, so Jesus had to
leave his home when he turned thirty, starting his public life course.
Then, what was Mary to do? Mary was to prepare the reciprocal partner
of Jesus and prepare a historical foundation. In order for Jesus to
complete this foundation, Mary was to support Jesus and take all the
responsibility to alleviate Jesus' resentment. Furthermore, based on
the foundation of Joseph's family, Mary was to pick a bride for Jesus
and prepare a holy wedding for him. However, this dissipated as if it
had been a dream. Mary was tied up too much with her living concerns
and her own problems with her husband.
The child-mother cooperation until the time of Jesus was part of the
foundation to search for a son. In what position was Mary standing? (A
servant's position.) Mary gave birth to her son, but it was through
her body as a servant. Jesus needed a bride. According to the
Principle of Creation, a woman must be created. Jesus, in the position
of Adam, had to seek the lost Eve. Then, Jesus could marry.
However, was Jesus able to find Eve? No. Jesus was searching, but he
had to die; therefore, Jesus has to come again. Jesus comes again and
marries. Is that right? Jesus died without being able to get married,
so he has to come again in order to get married. The idea that Jesus
should get married is Christian thought. (Laughter.)
Therefore, at the time of the second coming, what celebration did I
say would be held? (A marriage feast.) What is a marriage feast? A
marriage feast means that the woman goes to the man and the man
receives the woman. A marriage feast is a marriage ceremony. Isn't
that right? (Yes.) If I tell this story, people make a fuss saying I
am a heretic. Christians become very envious.
In order to hold the marriage feast, that is, the feast of the lamb,
Jesus needs a bride. Therefore, the bride must be found. Who is that
bride? It is Eve. It is Eve who was together with Adam before the
fall. The Lord of the Second Advent is the third Adam. Jesus was the
second Adam; the Lord who comes after Jesus is the third Adam. The
third Adam comes in the position of Adam before the fall and has to
search for Eve before the fall. The third Adam must find the unfallen
Eve and have the feast of the lamb.
Through the fall, Adam and Eve, who were to become the parents of
humankind, became the parents of evil. Therefore, if we can find the
parents of goodness before the fall, then the restoration will be
completed. Therefore, parents of goodness are necessary for humankind.
The feast of the lamb is necessary for the parents of goodness to be
recognized. Christian thought is very simple. This is the backbone of
When we look at Jesus, Jesus could not love his family. Think about
how miserable Jesus was. Christians mention many things, believing in
Jesus as the Messiah, but think of how miserable Jesus was. Was Jesus
able to love his family, or the nation, or the world, or God? No, he
couldn't. He couldn't love, though he tried with all his heart.
