Blessing and Ideal Family
by Reverend Sun Myung Moon
THE MISSION OF THE INTERNATIONAL BLESSED FAMILIES
1. INTERNATIONALISM CENTERING UPON GOD
The Unification Church holds mass wedding ceremonies. Marriages are
arranged between different nationalities or between different races
with different skin colors, transcending ethnic backgrounds. In the
United States, which is a land of severe racial discrimination, white
people are prejudiced against getting married to black people.
Interracial marriage is only possible centering upon God-centered
internationalism -- Godism which transcends ethnic and national
I mentioned this in America. Unification Church members belong to the
"love race." What kind of love race is it? They are the race unified
and connected with God's love. If this race grows, what will they be?
They will be a love nation. The population of Korea is 40 million now.
If the population of Unification Church members surpasses 40 million,
their power will exceed Korea. Their donation will exceed Korean
taxes. For them the Unification Church has more value than their
family, society and nation because the Unification Church is their
true Fatherland of their faith and Motherland of their mind.
Furthermore, they are the love race and love nation closely connected
centering upon God. Only Godism -- namely, one internationalism or
brotherhood centering upon one God as parents -- exists here.
Generally internationalism means to see the world as one nation and
all humankind as compatriots, but the internationalism the Unification
Church is talking about transcends all the walls from the family
level. It is an "ism" to establish one world with one God as parents
and all humankind as full brothers and sisters. Isn't it a
Because the Unification Church has such an ideology, this movement is
rapidly extending to the worldwide level.
Basically we have two kinds of love. One is humanistic love and the
other is God's love. These two should be harmonized well to become one
A circle revolves centering upon one point. When this circular motion
returns to the central point, it cannot help but move again out of the
center. To naturally rotate in and out means that there are no
obstacles blocking the way. The central point of this circular motion
is the core of the movement. In order to take this central position,
the Messiah is to come. Heavenly love initiated from the core -- the
Messiah -- can move outward.
So far, the ideal world harmonizing human love and God's love has been
considered a mere ideal existing only in a dream world. The Messiah is
the one who will actualize the impossible into the substantial. And
this is at hand. The Unification Church was born to accomplish this
purpose. Reverend Moon's utmost contribution is to bring all humankind
together under a common goal and to realize one harmonious ideal
centering upon God's love.
The quickest shortcut to bring the unity of the races is international
marriage. A man and a woman selected from two totally different
cultural and environmental backgrounds are to become one with the love
of God. This is complete harmony and unification.
We are to realize such an ideal. In order to accomplish a great work,
we should find the gigantic power of love. Such a great power only
comes from the utmost power of love. That is not the love played fast
and loose with societal and environmental changes. Only the utmost
love can transcend the boundaries of nationality, race, culture and
In human history, myriads of races and nations have fought each other
as enemies and been divided. Father wants to resolve this. Let us
pioneer a new heartistic connection. The Unification Church is to
break down the national barriers through the international mass
wedding ceremonies and to raise rapidly the heartistic indemnity
Let us jump from hell on earth to he palace in heaven by making this
kind of marriage a stepping stone.
You can meet freely, but you cannot separate as you wish. It is a
miracle that a man and a woman meet among a large number of people; so
to meet is not easy. Moreover, meeting in the Unification Church is
related not only to earth but also to the eternal heaven. You are to
enter not only the providence but also heaven. It is a dual miracle
that you meet in the providential history. Generally, a white gets
married to a white, but why Is a white woman married to a black man? A
waterfall cannot flow upside down. Father thinks it is done correctly
even though secular people think it is done backwards.
A white woman whose mind is broad enough to accept a black husband
will give birth to great sons and daughters. You are to embrace
each other in the same manner as a hen embraces her chicks. When
two people digest each other's complicated life contents, they make
a beautiful harmony. As a result of digesting each other, you will
grow bigger and bigger and you'll have great hope for the future
If a British woman becomes a queen through an international marriage
with a Japanese man, Britain will be able to get aid from Japan when
she is in difficulty. The way for a country to be prosperous can also
be found in an international marriage. The world can become one from
now on. It is possible. No one can swear that such a unity will not
2. ALL HUMANKIND ARE ONE BROTHERHOOD AND ONE FAMILY
When people resurrected through the Principle become one, transcending
the nation and the world, they are one brotherhood. Then white, black
or yellow races won't exist. The skin color may be a little different
because of climate and environment, but the bone, skin, blood and mind
will be the same.
For example, let's look at pine trees. As they move from the extreme
arctic regions to the temperate regions, trees become different. They
vary according to their environment and history. Let's also look at
bears. The bears at the North Pole are white to protect themselves in
an environment which is white.
The white race, like white bears at the North Pole, have to be white
due to the environment, because the protective color is white.
The white race is like white bears at the North Pole while the black
race is like the black bears in the temperate zone. That's the only
difference. Can the bears discriminate against each other "because you
are white" or "because you are black"?
If the white race has this idea, they will lose the game numerically
to the black and yellow races, because whites are only one-third of
the whole population. If they have such an idea in this specific era
when the communists are at the height of violence, they will be a
definite target of attack. Therefore, this idea must be cleaned out as
quickly as possible.
Five different races -- Asian, Hispanic, white, black, etc. -- are
here. What color or hue would appear if we mixed all the races? Any
color is okay with us. The Unification Church transcends race.
So many kinds of flowers blossom in the spring. No painter can exceed
a flower in expressing its beauty. We cannot compare the value of a
real flower with that of a drawing of a flower. Regardless of color --
black or white-flowers are all beautiful. When we mix seven colors,
they become one.
If give and take is performed evenly and fairly between different
entities, unification will be brought forth. White symbolizes peace,
which means reconciliation with or compromise. Originally, the white
race symbolizes the race which can bring about peace, but they didn't
fulfill their responsibility.
The white race have been meat-eaters. Their white skin color was
protective. Originally, they lived in the Scandinavian peninsula and
the North Pole. They survived by hunting on ice and snow. They didn't
do farming, but instead ate meat. That's why they have the nature to
attack other nations.
But blacks used to eat fruit or plants in the southern area. They have
been invaded a lot but they invaded others less. Instead, their daily
work was to eat and play. Because they had enough food for survival,
they weren't greedy. The time will surely come for blacks to be
blessed if they have absolute faith in God.
The whites didn't have any other way to eat except by hunting, so they
hunted and invaded others. God called them because He needed the white
people's role in the restorational process. Due to the Christian
faith, the whites became international, but the blacks shouldn't be
disappointed. Even though they are proud of themselves, the whites
have a record of invading other nations. On the other hand, Easterners
have a religious inclination. While eating fruit, they think.
With respect to races, inferiority or superiority doesn't exist. Color
counts for nothing. What matters is how in a fundamental sense we can
come closer to the historical tradition and God.
All should become one. The Unification Church holds international
marriage ceremonies. Westerners are married to Orientals; marriage
with no regard to race is the most beautiful scene in human history.
The problem appears when we cannot transcend racial barriers. These
marriages will be seen as truly great 10, 20 or 30 years from now.
Humankind will perish without such international thinking. Human
beings are brothers and sisters centering upon God. There's no excuse
for all of us not to be one in front of God.
There are many people with different nationalities in this room. If
someone says, "I'm not interested in a black or a yellow spouse," he
or she is opposing God, because God wants to make all races one.
Therefore, if someone says, "I'm not interested in other races," he or
she won't go on a path parallel with God.
The mass wedding ceremony is one of the most remarkable international
activities of the Unification Church. Through marriage, Father
implants an idea that we are one people. God's nature and His blood
are in blacks. Asians and Africans have one mind. Blood is
continuously circulating throughout the whole body. Blood is
circulating even between the smelly toes; likewise God's blood is
circulating in all the vessels of humankind. The Unification Church
holds international marriages to break down the walls of the world.
When we can go into every country without restriction because of these
international marriages, the walls which were high and strong will be
destroyed. Love is the most powerful force. There was the 118 Couples'
mass wedding ceremony in England, and most of them volunteered for an
international marriage. As such a movement expands, the world will
become one naturally.
A black marrying a white was considered a sin in the past, but the two
extremes becoming one is in line with God's ideal. We are doing such
work. When whites are ordered to look for ideal spouses, if they
choose black people as their ideal spouses, their nation will prosper;
and such a nation can be the Kingdom of Heaven. Nobody except Father
and the Unification Church can initiate such a work. God wouldn't
complain about the disappearance of the white race. God would be
happier if He could find genuine human nature instead of a genuine
white person. Our families should be able to follow the viewpoint of
Black members may be hesitant when they enter white society; but after
knowing God's will, they should stick out their chest with pride and
without any shyness.
This is a story about a German sister. At the Blessing, she asked to
marry an African. Racial discrimination still exists in American
society, but she married an African in order to understand the meaning
of true love. She thought of God's concern, regardless of the
prevailing social views. To have such a mental attitude is to feel
keenly God's will and His love. The mind to look at everyone as part
of one's family has great value.
We know how difficult building the Kingdom of Heaven is. The Kingdom
of Heaven cannot be established by a general and ordinary method.
Without having the conviction to sacrifice oneself for the sake of the
whole by knowing God's heartistic situation, we cannot build the
Kingdom of Heaven. When we act with such conviction, God has to help
and bless us. Eternal happiness lies in the person with whom God
always dwells. Therefore, the conclusion is that God's love and
eternal happiness are with the person who wants to establish an
eternal Kingdom of Heaven. Eternal happiness exists centering upon an
3. THE MEANING OF THE INTERNATIONAL MASS WEDDING CEREMONY
The power of love is greater than that of atomic bombs. Love
resurrects a man with new life, but an atomic bomb just kills a man.
It brings not creation but judgment and destruction. The United States
and the U.S.S.R. possess atomic bombs which can destroy the earth tens
of thousands of times; but they cannot bring forth world unity because
atomic bombs are weapons which kill, having nothing to do with love's
power to endow people with new life. True love, not the force of arms,
is absolutely necessary for the unity of the world. Temporary
unification is possible by force but it would be like living on an
active volcano -- we would never know when it was going to erupt.
Members of the Unification Church are trying to realize world unity
through the weapon of love. One of the activities for this is the
international mass wedding ceremony. When a husband and wife from
different racial backgrounds try to understand each other's situation
and environment and establish a successful love relationship, the
world will be one.
When minorities can receive equal benefit from the system and from the
civilization, and when advanced nations supply the less advanced
nations with techniques, loving to help them be economically
independent, instead of exploiting them, humankind will eliminate war
and starvation. Because God's love can blossom and bear fruit to
establish the Kingdom of Heaven on earth in such an environment, the
Unification Church focuses on such activities. A person whose faith in
God is absolute can win the victory. We should go over the racial
level and finally overcome the whole world with this thought. This is
why the Unification Church claims that the five races should be one in
the future. Because God's love is one, interest and affection cannot
differ wherever God created land. Interracial marriage is a symbol of
God's love and will. Love is considered not to have any national
boundary, even by the secular world. How much more is it true in God's
dominion? It is fundamentally different from the tragic connection of
love made by the his tory of force. God's love doesn't just seek
individual well-being and benefit; it is a devotional way of love, for
the world and all humankind.
Love is the invisible order, peace and core of happiness which
promotes the public good at the worldwide level. It is also a public
asset and a symbol of God's love and His will.
A new kind of race is being established in the Unification Church.
Under the principle that all humankind is of equal value to God, a
transcendent race is forming. Unificationists are composed of all
races including American, Korean, Japanese, German, African, etc., but
they work with the same purpose, which is to establish one world. If
five races fight each other, not overcoming the racial walls, then
even if we claim to work for God, God will not be with us. Because
Father knows that God doesn't like to see such discrimination, he
mixed all five races and let them work on the same team. Father knows
God's providential desire for one world, so he organized such a
combined team in order to break down the racial walls. If
Unificationists don't overcome the racial walls, they will not be able
to gather together all of humankind, which includes differing
histories and cultural traditions.
How can Father bind all the Unificationists into one? To bind them
with rope is not complete; neither is it complete to bind them with
money, authority or ideology. The only way to bind them is through
To bind them in love is the Blessing. And it is not the blessing
between a white and a white, rather it is the blessing between a white
and a black or a yellow. Likewise a yellow is to be blessed with a
black or a white. This is the rope of love. If black, white, and
yellow are bound by a rope of love, the children will be different
colors, but surely one race. If the ancestors are black and white,
there will still be a possibility for a black child to be born out of
a white and a white marrying in the future. In spite of parents being
white, they will still have black genes in their blood from the mixed
blood of their ancestors.
The whites are excited to get married to blacks and Asians. Who made
this possible? Did Reverend Moon make it possible? True love did.
Let's imagine that a white woman who is married to a black or a yellow
person gives birth to twins; if the twins are a black and a yellow,
what will God's heart be when He sees her family? Will He say, "They
look ugly so I'll not visit your house," or, "How beautiful they are!
I'm so happy with your family"? A white mother giving birth to black
and yellow babies would be the most beautiful scene on earth. It would
be the utmost beauty that human history ever created. It is most
beautiful to see a white butterfly, a red spotted butterfly, and a
yellow butterfly together fluttering around a flower. This is the same
One love starts where one mind gathers. Love can visit where minds
becomes one. First of all, we should make an environment where love is
cherished. Therefore, wherever the mind goes, love follows. The
Kingdom of Love is possible when the father's mind and the mother's
mind are one in a family.
The Kingdom of Heaven comes earlier to the family of a white and a
black than to an all-white family because the united mind of whites
can establish the family-level Kingdom of Heaven, but it is still far
away from the worldwide Kingdom of Heaven. The way to the world level
opens for the united family of a white and a black. Therefore, the
Kingdom of Heaven will be established first in an internationally
married couple. Two-thirds of the divorce cases in the United States
are caused by women. Woman fell first by Satan's temptation in the
Garden of Eden. Without women nothing can be done, so they need true
education. Such an education has not been given successfully by any
prominent scholars or religious leaders. In such an age, international
marriage is a topic of discussion not only in the United States but in
the whole world. Unificationism is enabling people to engage in
international marriages which transcend racial walls.
The Unification Church appeared in order to solve all the complicated
world problems of the different cultural and environmental
backgrounds. So you as a representative of the world should be able to
solve all difficult matters through bearing a heartistic cross. In
that sense, an internationally married family is greater than any
other family. God's love will visit the successful international
married Couples. Because those families bear a family level cross for
the world and they represent the honor of the Unification Church,
their way is to be solemn and grave. There will be a day when the
people who are married to the same race will have to congratulate the
internationally married Couples with gifts.
Our sisters! Wanting to get married only to whites is satanic
thinking. Even though I'm Korean, my perspective is not limited to
Korea. I'm the one who first thinks of the world. We have to set up
such a tradition. If five races in the transcendent religion become
one in love, the new morning of utmost glory, which God desires, will
Nowadays many members of the Unification Church participate in
international marriage, transcending national boundaries. There are
many Couples who cannot communicate with each other because of the
language barrier; they are willing to invest all of their lives and
youth. For whom do they invest their precious youth? The world is
blocked up by the national barriers, so they want to break down those
walls. By walking such a suffering course earlier than others, we are
to establish God's foundation, on which all the races and nations can
be united. If a person accepts such a course with gratitude, he or she
will be considered a victorious one, historically and universally.
In order to overcome racial war and sexual corruption, we held an
international mass wedding ceremony.
Father is in the position to represent myriads of nations. That's why
Father sends Korean men and Korean women out to the world by means of
an international Blessing. This is the best way to love the world.
Korea is groping for progress in the realm of international
competition; likewise the Unification Church should embark on the
international stage in order to establish a cultural realm centering
upon the new Unificationism. We have a mission to establish subjective
love for the new world. That's why our marriage ceremonies are held
From now on, all of your close relatives will try to serve Father. At
that time, I will visit the internationally-married Couples, First
because they are the ones who accomplished the heartistic revolution.
4. THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN EASTERN AND WESTERN CULTURE, AND
What is great? (Love!) Really? (Yes!) That's right. Then, where's such
love? Is love vertical or horizontal? (It is vertical!) Then, is love
the power of spiral motion or the power of linear motion? (It's the
power of spiral motion!)
Therefore, there is also horizontal love as well as vertical love.
Then, which is first? (Vertical love is first!) Why? Centering upon
the nose two halves of a human body are identical.
Westerners write horizontally from left to right, but somebody started
to write vertically from top to bottom in order to connect heaven and
From where will the world become one? When Western thought starts
moving around, centering upon Eastern thought, the world can be one.
This cannot be actualized by Westerners moving to the East; it should
be started by an Eastern man trying to make Westerners one.
You as Westerners are trying to follow and to be one with Father -- an
Oriental. This is a phenomenon happening for the first time in human
Westerners thought "day" is always with them. Now they are scared
because "night" is approaching them. But "night" surely must come, in
order to make a full turn so that a higher-dimensional life style can
Light and darkness exist to make harmony. A person who is ignorant of
such a fact doesn't know art. What is God's ideal art work? If there's
fighting between white and black, masterpieces cannot come into being.
The white person who only prefers another white person is the same as
a picture painted with only white paint. Can it be a masterpiece? From
this perspective, all five races are necessary. When the background of
a picture is multi-colored, the picture looks more beautiful than the
picture with a mono-toned background. In order to make a picture look
three-dimensional, various colors should be harmonized.
The Oriental's face and Occidental's face are created in a way
complementary to each other. The Occidental's nose is high but the
Oriental's is flat. When Occidentals try to kiss, they have to tilt
toward the side in order not to bump each other's noses. But it is
possible for an Easterner and a Westerner to kiss straight because one
nose is high and the other is flat. That is why God also wanted
Easterners and Westerners to create harmony in relationships with each
other. Therefore, Father encourages international couples, that look
more stylish and are closer to a round shape, which can make it easier
to revolve around.
Why do I like that? It is because the principle of heaven and earth is
so. We should make East and West completely one by solidifying the
foundation of love which cannot be separated by any national power.
That is the way for the Unification Church to be eternally remembered
in history. The world will automatically become one if such a
foundation is established.
Do you like flat lands or mountains? There is harmony and mystery in a
mountain. We easily get tired of looking at flat land. Then is the
white race closer to flat land or to a mountain?
Western civilization is low, which means to be closer to the flat
land. Why do Americans like words starting with "anti"? It shows the
inclination to go higher by using new and opposite methods. If we
examine American culture closely, we will find this to be commonplace.
But Eastern culture is deep, lofty and mysterious. Westerners have
great difficulty understanding Eastern culture, even though they study
so much about it. They don't know about Orientals. When Westerners
conflict with each other, they try "grappling." They separate "high"
from "low" by fighting, but Easterners do it by contemplation or
thought. When something is going wrong, they just wait and see it
through with patience.
Therefore, it was inevitable that the Occidental civilizations, which
tend to favor war, absorbed Oriental civilizations by initiating wars.
The white race initiated many of the world's wars. They were the
hunting race, eating the bears near the North Pole. Such a race has
been leading the history of wars in world cultural history.
When two objects in a relationship become one, strong power is
produced. There's a saying that when women gather together, they
totally stir up the village. But when a man and woman become one,
unprecedented power will manifest. Likewise, when East and West,
having completely opposite natures, can become one in love, they will
be eternal. That's why nowadays we can see the tendency of Occidentals
to imitate the Orient and of Orientals to have affection for the
Occident. When cold water and hot water run into one, it explodes;
likewise, when an Oriental lives in the West, and when a Westerner
stays in the East, they feel very stimulated. Therefore, future
marriages all should be international. In managing such events, Father
became a standard-bearer for the world.
5. OPENING THE AGE OF INTERNATIONAL MARRIAGE
I blessed Japanese, Americans and Germans this time. Originally, I
wanted to bless some Japanese in 1967, but I couldn't. So I blessed
Kuboki as a representative of Japan in the 430 Couples' Blessing in
1969. At first I blessed Japanese, next American, and then I let the
anchor of Blessing land with four nations centering upon Germany.
Therefore, you should know that a victorious foundation, with
representatives of the world's nations setting up indemnity
conditions, has been established.
Because I had to establish a world-level foundation, there was an
international marriage among 10 different nations after the 430
The 36 Couples' Blessing was to mark the victory over all the failures
of Christian history. It had a mission to revive the central thought
The 72 Couples' Blessing is to bind Cain and Abel in a unified form.
The 124 Couples are the representative forms of the world. The 430
Couples were blessed in the very year in which Korea became 4,300
years old. This Blessing established a condition for any Korean who
believes in God to go to the Kingdom of Heaven. From that time on, the
door of the general age instead of the specific age opened. This
taught us that people from all parts of the world are one brotherhood.
Father blessed 43 Couples from many nations in the world in 1969; this
Blessing had a meaning similar to that of the 430 Couples' Blessing in
Korea. The age of international marriage opened after the 430 Couples'
Blessing. Through your international marriage, you are to be the
families of the world instead of focusing on each other.
The age of the international wedding opened after the 777 Couples'
Blessing. There was the 320 Couples' matching ceremony in England;
only two percent of the candidates were matched to the same nation
(English to English). Young men and women from 27 nations were matched
internationally. The mass wedding will be known as the "integration
wedding," which is to match people as independent heavenly entities,
regardless of nationality, or financial or social background. When the
age of opposition to the Unification Church passes, the age of the
"integration wedding" will come.
Whoever suffers the most will receive God's blessing. You have the
form of an individual but you are not a mere individual. You should
live as a representative of God, transcending the individual
dimension. A person who lives for the society and the nation is called
a loyal subject; and a person who lives for the world and humankind is
called a saint. Working for yourself counts for nothing. The result of
self-centered action will be fallen and rotten, having no meaning,
like the fallen leaves of autumn. A person who works for the whole
purpose will be eternally remembered as a champion, a mature fruit in
This time everyone was blessed internationally. In order to restore
the world, you should have a universal feeling, transcending any
national feeling or thought. That's why everybody received an
international blessing. Father felt joyful because the Couples were
happy. So Father asked them what they can do for Korea. They answered
that they can do anything.
No Asian man in human history has done such work in Europe. We can
feel the awesome power of the Principle.
If Korea is the champion nation, which is the object nation? It is
Japan. That's why many Japanese members want to get married to
Koreans, who are the ones closest to Father. They are digging into
Korea. International marriage automatically becomes a great success
because it is the only way. Why? Because it is the shortcut to heaven.
We are to organize the victorious dominion of the individual, family,
tribe, nation and world from the remnants of the satanic world. I plan
to arrange many international marriages this time. If that happens,
people will be able to change their concept toward the other nations,
going over national barriers and limits. There was a matching among
members from 27 different European nations; only two percent of the
people were matched to the same nation. Others were matched to
unexpected partners. Some had language barriers, and some were matched
to an enemy nation; but everyone was joyful. Difference in customs
might have made them a little awkward, but it was no problem. So the
wedding became a topic of interest among the European nations. People
started a rumor that Reverend Moon escaped from the United States to
England; but actually he gathered European young men and women and
arranged their marriage. The members were matched to persons of whom
they had never even dreamed. But they were so happy, even though they
were matched to total strangers, because Father led them. Outsiders
may wonder about those young people!
6. THE MISSION OF THE INTERNATIONAL BLESSED FAMILIES
It is unprecedented that you crossed over national boundaries and
gathered here. Father made it possible for you to go over the national
boundaries; it is a great achievement. For example, England and
Germany were enemies during World War Il. But by marrying a young man
and a young woman from those countries to one another, a historical
phenomenon of give and take with love took place between those enemy
countries. Even though they cannot communicate completely with one
another, when they look at the babies born out of their base of love,
both will feel the same joy. From this point, the heartistic dominion
of unification is binding people together from all over Europe; this
is an amazing fact.
The language and life style of the people from five oceans and six
continents cannot be understood easily, but the international marriage
which went over the historical walls became a landing base for God and
True Parents on earth. It is a great task. A doctrine of the
Unification Church is to live for the sake of others; this is the idea
of sacrificing oneself for the sake of others. In this world dying
from selfishness, a crowd of proud individuals gathered in front of
Heavenly Father -- the grand Subject of the Universe-and determined to
live for the sake of the family, nation, world and cosmos. The battle
cry of the crowd which is determined to break through all the layers
of crucifixion is ringing throughout the world. This is a
revolutionary and epoch-making song of which to be proud.
For what did you cross your national boundary? Why did you come to
Korea, leaving your culture, land and parents?
God's providential goal has been to find an original husband and an
original wife. Therefore, you came to meet your true husband or true
wife, for whom your original mind has yearned, separating from the
satanic national foundation. A true man and a true woman are to grow
through their close relationship with the True Parents. In other
words, you came here to serve the True Parents. You are not here
pursuing money. You are not here to be proud of being American,
British or German. Rather you are here to be proud of your spouse and
of True Parents beyond everything else in the world. Because True
Parents haven't left the sorrowful path, you came here to love them.
Father knows the international blessed Couples are the ones with this
You came here to look for love with an obedient and loving mind. Even
though your husband is crippled or deformed, it is God's and True
Parents' decision. You should have a strong desire that at the cost of
your life you will leave one fruit, which is the sap of your love, on
earth. With this quality of desire, you should be able to give birth
to sons and daughters. Have such sons and daughters ever been born
Father wants to ask you, "With what kind of milk do you feed your
baby?" When you nurse your baby, consider that your baby is born as
the flower of your united love centering upon God and True Parents. Do
you hold and nurse your baby with such an attitude? The most valuable
asset for you is your child. If you had looked for money, knowledge or
fame in the past, that was a false life. If your couple serves one
another with sincerity and tries to pave the way to become True
Parents, God will be responsible for your family. Such a family will
not die of starvation; neither is it to disappear due to persecution,
mockery or name-calling. The environment will surrender to such a
family, as it has in Father's case.
Regardless of the opposition of the whole world, Father proceeded to
look for true brothers and true tribes. After establishing true
tribes, Father went on to look for the true race. After establishing
the true race, Father went on to look for the true nation, true world
and true spirit world. Reverend Moon has been the representative to
look for the world of heaven filled with unity and love.
You don't know how precious the Blessing is. You should become a proud
international couple which is qualified to receive God's love as well
as His praise. You should pray for the birth of a standard-bearer who
will be able to unify your two nations, and also determine to raise
your child as the prince of the two nations. Have you prayed like
that? If you didn't, you should repent right now.
You should change your fundamental attitude toward life. While
shouldering the historical responsibility to confirm the domain of
love, and while enduring in order to pass over the suffering course of
the cross, you are to make an expedition into happiness in the
distance. You will be punished if you forget that you flew here from
all over the world to pioneer the way for true love, and your nation
will be punished.
The international marriage didn't take place by accident. The
traditional mission of the children of those Couples first is to annul
the difference between East-West and North-South resulting from
authority, knowledge and economic power, and next, on this foundation,
is to build a lofty Mount Everest of love.
Are there any Japanese members who want to be martyred for God's will
in Korea? The Japanese are told to marry anyone except a Korean; that
is the Japanese disposition. l know it clearly. You don't know how
contemptuously Father was treated in Japan. There would be no way to
end my resentment even if I beat and break the bones of the Japanese.
But because I realized God's love and the universal law, I can forgive
and bless you; otherwise my eyes would flare with resentment. l can
never forget the situation in which I was on the verge of death,
bleeding from severe torture. Is it easy to gather such descendants,
and make them God's children?
Since you came to Korea, you should fulfill your responsibility while
learning Korean tradition. If I am buried in the "Garden of
Unification," you will also be buried near me. If you get buried in
the same garden as Father, your descendants will be so proud of you.
The day is not so far away when your offspring in tears will cherish
your memory. You should experience the awesomeness of leaving your
traces in history.
To endeavor day and night is the traditional movement and action of
the Unification Church.
Korean husbands and Japanese wives! You are not to live for Korea. You
are chosen as the worldwide pioneers of love to unite Korea and Japan.
After Japanese members learn Korean in Korea, they should go to the
wilderness of Manchuria or Siberia, or prepare to go to Red China.
When the Japanese can love Red China more than the Chinese love her,
the way to march forward to the world will be open. God's will is to
plant the seed of true love even at the sacrifice of your life. Father
expects that God's front liners, who will be able to pioneer the
continental dominion, will be born centering upon the Japanese members
and their descendants. You are gathered here for such a task.
You came to Korea by an historical summons, so you shouldn't live as
Japanese or Europeans any more. Even if you suffer more than the
Korean people, you must go out as the front-liners to establish the
heavenly tradition. While Father is establishing the worldwide
foundation, you came to this fatherland of faith, so you must try
harder and sweat more than Father. Have you worked more than have the
Japanese members in the United States? Japanese sisters should work
more than they suffered in Japan; European members also bear the
responsibility to work harder than they did in their countries. No
matter how difficult it is, to walk this way is your duty and goal.
When your heart becomes one with the homeland of your faith, and when
you master the Korean language, I will send you to your country as
Korean teachers. Every country will need you. As an advanced
contingent, Father matched you as Couples. Do you have time to listen
to radio programs? You must study Korean every day until late at
night, according to a study schedule. You will be able to spread the
Korean language all over the world. You should play the role of
connecting your country to God's nation.
The time will come soon when you are proud of having a Korean husband.
At the very time of opening the door to the Kingdom by creating the
Unification dominion centering on God, you came to Korea. So you
foreign wives shouldn't be driven out of this nation, and you Korean
husbands should embrace your wives with love and protect them from
being driven out. You should experience this elevated and deep
heartistic bond while working as the main unit for home church
activity. You will have to extend the Unification dominion into your
country with an anchor of love holding fast, centering upon the
Who will receive more blessing from God? The couple from the same
country who risk their lives for the providence, or the couple from
enemy nations who are determined to accomplish the Will of love in
oneness at the risk of their lives? The internationally married
couples will receive more blessing. Knowing that, you should fulfill
your responsibility as the messengers of love, in order to provide a
good example to Koreans.
