A Cloud of Witnesses:
The Saints' Testimonies to the True Parents
This was published in newspapers across the USA in early July.
What follows is a complex document. It was produced at a seminar
in spirit world for leaders of the five great religions. It includes
testimonies to the True Parents, a letter from God, messages from
four communist leaders, and a resolution written and adopted by the
representatives of the five great religions.
To take this all in, we advise you to relax and open your mind for
a while. If you believe in the existence of a higher dimension of
reality, of God, of an invisible realm, this will call you to reflect
on the implications of that belief. We believe in the spirit world
and in the continuation of individual identity from this world to that
one. All the passed-away saints are residing in spirit world. Since
Jesus called him in 1935, the Reverend Sun Myung Moon has carried
on a ministry to spirit world in parallel with his ministry on Earth.
He has sought to gather the founders and saints of all faiths around one
table of unity. In recent times, he has ministered to spirits in hell
and opened the gates of their liberation. This collection of testimonies
is one fruit of that ministry.
The Family Federation for World Peace and Unification
is publishing this document throughout America and in 40 countries
worldwide. This proclamation is our responsibility to let all humankind
know the works of God in our age.
This message has significant practical as well as spiritual
import. It is a unifying message, addressing believers of all faiths
as one global family. As such it is intended to draw all men and
women to the one Holy God and help bring world peace. Peace will not
arrive through politics or economic development alone, as crucial as
these things are. The foundation for peace is common faith in God and
practice of true parental, conjugal and familial love. Hence the value
of True Parents, and the messianic power of their words and works.
A committee or coalition cannot instigate true love; the
responsibility for this devolves to substantial human exemplars. The
testimonies that follow bear witness that the Reverend and Mrs.
Sun Myung Moon are those exemplars and have opened the gates for all
people to inherit, through them, God's completed salvation, prophesied
in all scriptures.
The testimonies appeal to Father Moon's teachings and works as
the evidence of their veracity. We encourage the reader to move beyond
these messages and duly pursue study of his teachings and works. Those
of us who have followed Father Moon's leadership confirm the testimonies
of the saints. We believe in God's work for world peace, to bring
His kingdom upon the Earth and in Heaven. With that love and hope in
our hearts, we recommend these messages to you.

for world peace.
- St. Augustine (Bishop of Hippo, who laid the cornerstone
of Catholic theology): I, Augustine, will move forward strongly in
realizing the ideal of the Completed Testament Age, to allow all of
humanity to have the Unification Principle as their truth and Reverend
Sun Myung Moon as their Messiah. I respect, believe and depend on all
the words and theology of Reverend Sun Myung Moon and I give my oath
and pledge, raising my hands, to do all that I do together with the Lord.
- Horace Underwood (American Presbyterian, first missionary
to Korea): I, Horace Underwood, joyfully celebrate the fact that
the Second Coming has come to Korea, an eastern country that takes
polite etiquette very seriously. I put my hands together and bow to
the Messiah. I pledge and give my word of honor to devote all that I
possess in attendance to the Reverend Sun Myung Moon.

in his studiousness and virtue): Until now, my teacher, Confucius,
taught us disciples a way to attain virtue and to follow the true way
of a scholar. Witnessing the fact that the Reverend Sun Myung Moon has
guided my teacher to the correct way of truth, I, An Yeon, promise
to believe and attend Reverend Sun Myung Moon as well.
- Ja Gong (a great diplomat and political leader during
the No and Wui dynasties of ancient China): I, Ja Gong, believe that the

As my master, Confucius, humbly accepted and adopted this as the genuine
truth, I, Ja Ha, pledge to be obedient to the way of the will of Reverend
Sun Myung Moon as well.

in the age of the civil wars): Since this is the way that was chosen

in going this way.
- Jeong Ja (leading theoretician of filial piety,
self-cultivation and loving kindness in Confucianism. Compiled "The
Great Learning," one of the Seven Chinese Classics): I believe that
the Unification Principle is a theory that can save all humanity, and
that it surpasses the teachings, virtues and studies of my master,
Confucius. Therefore, along with my master, I determine to receive the
teachings of the Unification Principle and the guidance of Reverend Sun
- Ja Yu (an advocate of filial piety): I was very moved and
inspired by the fact that God, who created the entire universe and
human beings, is the Parent of humankind. I respect Reverend Sun Myung
Moon, who has revealed such a great truth. I am grateful to my master's
loyalty and courageous decision. I wish to guide all Confucianists to
- Ja Jang (an advocate of loyalty to and faith in one's
king or ruler): Even though I am a human being, I have found the
genuine truth. Therefore, even if that way may be one of suffering and
difficulty, I believe that following with an unchanging mind is the way
of loyalty. So I pledge to Reverend Sun Myung Moon that I will share
the suffering and joy of my teacher through following this path.
- Mencius (who taught the divinity of human character): If our
Parent is God, then the natural way is to attend God. Therefore, I
pledge that I will live in attendance to the Reverend Sun Myung Moon,
and that I will do this with unending passion. There is no greater
truth than this.
- Sun Ja (who taught the importance of education and
propriety): I think that the Unification Principle is a truth that
can guide people on a clear road through life. Reverend Sun Myung Moon,
I thank you and respect you. And I promise to dedicate myself to this
great truth unconditionally.
Buddha: Reverend Sun Myung Moon! True Parents! The 120 people
of Buddhism vow and pledge to advance toward a movement of peace that
will guide humanity in a new direction. We pledge to attend God as the
Parent of humankind and Reverend Sun Myung Moon as a True Parent, and to
equip ourselves with the Unification Principle and Unification Thought.
- Ven. Sariputa (One of Buddha's ten greatest disciples, who
had outstanding wisdom): True Parents, Reverend Sun Myung Moon: the
twelve Buddhist representatives have resolved to dedicate themselves
to your teachings. We respect the virtue and teachings of Buddha and
think that the way of Buddha was the way of Heaven.
- Mok, Keon Ryeon (One of Buddha's ten greatest disciples,
who had outstanding divine power): Because I believed in and attended the
teachings of Buddha, I will proceed with a sincere heart. Reverend Sun
Myung Moon, the Savior of the Completed Testament Age, I resolve to
follow the way of God's will, along with Buddha.
- Ven. Mahakassapa (One of Buddha's ten greatest disciples,
who systematized the Buddhist faith): I think that the Unification
Principle and Unification Thought are great teachings, not only
for Buddhists, but for all of humankind. I pledge to harmonize the
teachings of Buddha and the detailed teachings of the Unification
Principle, to lift up the will of God, who is the Parent of humankind,
and of the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who is the True Parent.
- Ven. Anuruddha (One of Buddha's ten greatest disciples):
Reverend Sun Myung Moon! I am sincerely grateful for your revelation
of and guidance along the way toward the eternal future of humanity. I
promise to pioneer a new way of life, along with Buddha, and to meet
you in an eternal place.
- Ven. Subhadda (One of Buddha's ten greatest disciples):
I give thanks to have lived in faith in and attendance to Buddha. I
am now able to attend the Reverend Sun Myung Moon and study the
Unification Principle. I am deeply grateful for this. I think that the
way of truth lies in knowing that the true victor is the one who can
win the battles that human beings must fight from the cradle to the
grave. This is the fight within oneself. Now that I have encountered
the wonderful Unification Principle, I resolve and pledge to make a new
start following the guidance and teachings of my new teacher. I can
now courageously put aside my old way of thinking.
- Ven. Purna (One of Buddha's ten greatest disciples,
the greatest Buddhist preacher): Human beings' birth, life course and
death proceed not according to human power but by the will of God.
What a great teacher we have met, the one who has taught us about God
and that God is our Parent! Reverend Sun Myung Moon, although we are
small and insufficient, we of the Buddhist faith have resolved and
pledged together, to lift up and attend the will of True Parents, while
- Ka, Jeon Yeon (One of Buddha's ten greatest disciples, the
greatest at debate): There is a section of the Unification Principle
entitled "Give and Take Action." I truly admire and am amazed by that
content. The Unification Principle is organized perfectly; it is the
truth that can save humankind. The theory of Give and Take Action seems
at first glance to be commonplace, but it is actually a monumental
truth. It contains deep and meaningful content that is essential for
our following God's will. I think that the way of following Reverend
Sun Myung Moon, who has revealed the Unification Principle, is the way
of Heaven, and I promise that I will follow the way of Heaven.
- Ven. Upali (One of Buddha's ten greatest disciples, the
greatest observant of the Buddhist commandments): Buddha has always been
patient, and he has not just taught us but has shown us through his
actions. The Unification Principle is very new to us, but since Buddha
learned and experienced everything on his own before bringing it us, I
cannot but absolutely believe in the Unification Principle. Reverend
Sun Myung Moon is the True Parent and Messiah of humankind. I strongly
resolve to believe and follow the Messiah. I will advance toward a world
of peace centered on God, by going beyond all religious denominations.
- Ven. Rahula (the son of Buddha, one of the ten greatest
disciples, who was not known to be a disciple): I, Rahula, think of Buddha
not just as my father, but as the father of all of us, and I am grateful
that I lived a life of asceticism. Now, I am grateful that Buddha has
given me the opportunity to access the Unification Principle, which
allows me to go the way to the eternal ideal of Heaven. I strongly
resolve and pledge that we Buddhist disciples will unite centered on
Godism, which can bring about an eternal world of peace for all humanity,
while we attend Reverend Sun Myung Moon as our True Parent.
- Ven. Ananda (a younger cousin of Buddha, one of the ten
greatest disciples, the greatest in knowledge): It is only natural
to attend Reverend Sun Myung Moon as the Messiah of the Completed
Testament Age, because all of the fundamental truths Buddha taught to
us are found in the Unification Principle. I firmly believe that God
is our vertical Parent, and I pledge from now to follow only one path.
- Yong Su (who studied and developed Mahayana Buddhism): I
firmly believe that Reverend Sun Myung Moon is the True Parent, Messiah
and Savior of humankind. And I believe that the Unification Principle
is the truth that will save all of humanity. I resolve to stand in the
forefront of a movement to bring unity centered on Godism, through
overcoming the barriers that stand between religious denominations.
- Se Chin (who helped expand the power of Mahayana Buddhism):
I believe that Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who revealed the Unification
Principle on the earth, is the True Parent and Messiah. And I hope that
the Unification Principle will be passed on to all the people of Buddhist
faith. I firmly pledge to actively help in the movement for unification.
Muhammad: Since I, Muhammad, encountered the Unification
Principle and met the Reverend Sun Myung Moon, my worldview has
changed. I am now confident in everything. Everything seems new to
me now. I am filled with optimism and hope. This is because I have
come to know the fundamental will of God and that God is the Parent of
humankind. I know now that this is the way I must go. The basic way of
life is to live in attendance to our vertical and horizontal parents.
I cry out: Victory for God! Victory for Reverend Sun Myung Moon,
the True Parent, Messiah and Savior! All Muslims follow the will of
Muhammad. Allah, whom you have been following, was actually God,
Jehovah. There is only one God for humankind and God is our Parent. I
offer my pledge. I pledge to have faith in everything and follow the
will of the Eternal God. (2001.12.26)
- Abubakr (First Khalifa): Allah is actually God. God and
Allah are the same being. Reverend Sun Myung Moon has let the world
know that God is the Parent of humankind. He is the True Parent of
humankind. Through the Unification Principle, I have discovered truth
that has moved me deeply. As Reverend Sun Myung Moon has let
me realize the correct fundamentals of human life and the direction of
history, I pledge to follow his way. Thank you.
- Umar Bin Kha Pab (Second Khalifa): Muhammad is more passionate
and faithful than anyone else. As he introduced us to the Unification
Principle, Unification Theology and Reverend Sun Myung Moon, he told
us that if we believed in him this far, we should follow him until the
end. Moreover, Unification Principle and Unification Theology moved me
much more than the teachings of Muhammad did. When we realized that God
is our Parent, it hurt us quite a lot. There is only one God called
on by different religions, and His purpose is always exactly the same.
I was surprised by the fact that religions have fought over small
differences. Reverend Sun Myung Moon, I will go forward. I pledge to
attend and to follow the will of the True Parent of all humankind.
- Osman Bin Afan (Third Khalifa): I have realized that even
though the Unification Principle is new, it is a precious truth that can
truly change and renew human beings. I sincerely realized God's pain as
He waited for humanity for so long. Reverend Sun Myung Moon is qualified
to be the Messiah of the Completed Testament Age, and the True Parent of
all humankind. I pledge to have faith in, and follow, this great teacher.
- Ali Bin Abi Palib (Fourth Khalifa): I wish to say,
"Victory to Muhammad!" Because I followed Muhammad, I came to know the
Unification Principle and was able to meet Reverend Sun Myung Moon.
We are all grateful to both of these people. The Unification Principle
provides very accurate and clear guidance for humanity. Muslims,
your hard work and devotion have not been in vain. I desire that you
receive the teachings of Reverend Sun Myung Moon. He is a great teacher,
Messiah and Savior of the Completed Testament Age. He clearly directs
humanity concerning the final problem of the afterlife. I desire that
Muslims study Unification Principle. Reverend Sun Myung Moon, thank
you for your hard work. I will believe in and follow True Parents.
- Abdullah Bin Abbas (A scholar in the Age of Sahaba,
who interpreted the Quran): Muhammad has shown us great courage and
passion. He did not allow us to be mistaken about God. I, Abdulla bin
Abbas, will follow with total faith everything that Muhammad decides.
And, although I have not heard the Unification Principle many times,
I can say that it is very systematic and well-organized. I think
its logical analysis touched Muhammad's mind. I also accept it
and believe it. I pledge to work hard testifying to Muslims, while
believing in the vertical God and the horizontal True Parents.
- Abdullah Bin Masud (An interpreter of the Quran who lived
in the days of Muhammad): I believe that Unification Principle will
move Muslims greatly. I desire that all Muslims take interest in the
activities of Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who is the Savior and True Parent
in the Completed Testament Age, and study Unification Principle. Allah,
whom we have attended thus far, is none other than God. The world is a
wide place. Muslims, please try to broaden your conservative thinking
and ideas. I will believe in and attend Reverend Sun Myung Moon, the
True Parent of humankind, who revealed the Unification Principle.
- Abi Bin Khab (An interpreter of the Quran, who lived in
the days of Muhammad): Reverend Sun Myung Moon! True Parents of all
humanity! I believe in the Messiah, who is the Savior. I also have
faith in the fact that the Unification Principle is an eye-opening
truth that can guide the future of the world and the afterlife of all
humanity. I will go forward believing in and attending the True Parents
of humankind. This I pledge and swear.
- Amu Hanifa (Founder of the Hanapi School): Unification
Principle is so moving. Words cannot express the greatness of its
truth. It is definitely a revelation from God. Reverend Sun Myung
Moon, True Parents, thank you for your hard work. As the future and
afterlife of all of humanity has now been clearly revealed through
Unification Principle, Earth and Heaven should be happy and cheer,
"Victory! Victory!" I pledge to believe in and attend Reverend Sun
- Malikh Bin Anas (Founder of the Maliki School): Muhammad did
not persuade us. He did not even teach us the details of the Unification
Principle. We were moved by the look in his eyes and quality of his
actions, once he learned about the Unification Principle. Muhammad's
courage and vision, manifested as if the whole world were his, moved
us. I believe in Reverend Sun Myung Moon, the True Parent and Savior of
humankind, and I believe that the Unification Principle is a revelation
from God. We pledge to equip ourselves with the Unification Principle and
to follow unchangingly, actively supporting the work of the True Parents.
- Ibn Idris Il-Shafi (Founder of the Shafi School):
The Unification Principle is an eye-opening gospel given to
humankind. Reverend Sun Myung Moon, who has come as a True Parent!
I'm sorry that I have not been given enough time to express how I am
moved, but I am truly grateful to you. Without a revelation from
God, the Unification Principle couldn't have appeared on the Earth. I
firmly pledge to believe in and attend the Messiah in the Completed
- Ahmad Bin Hanbal (Founder of the Hanballi School): Reverend
Sun Myung Moon, the Savior of humankind, thank you! Thank you for
your hard work. The Unification Principle proves everything. I will
believe in and attend you.
- Al-Ashari (Founder of the Sunni branch): I first would
like to shout, "Victory to Muhammad!" Because of his having devoted
all of his passion to Allah, he has been able to find the Unification
Principle. Now, I hope that those of the Muslim faith will believe in
and follow Muhammad until the end. The Unification Principle is not
a theory that came from the brain of a person on Earth. It is the
new gospel, which Reverend Sun Myung Moon revealed through revelations
from God. Reverend Sun Myung Moon! True Parents! O Messiah, O Savior!
Victory! Victory! Victory! I firmly resolve to go the way of loyalty
and filial piety, while believing and attending the True Parents.
Three people from among the 12 representatives
- Shankara (founder of the Advaita Vedanta): I am very sorry
to have to tell you my reflection on the Unification Principle after
having listened to lectures for but a short period of time. I will
try to make a worthy statement in the time given. Through this seminar,
I newly realized the following: that God is the Parent of humankind,
that in order to correct the deviated history, God sent providential
central figures, that God sent the great teacher Reverend Sun Myung
Moon as the Savior of humankind, and that the Unification Principle
has been revealed as the new truth, to teach humankind the correct
path. God! Reverend Sun Myung Moon!
Because Hinduism didn't know of the existence of the one God, our
religious ceremonies were very complex, and as the ages and environments
changed, our religion adopted various local and ethnic religious forms.
However, the Hindu mind always desired to find an absolute being.
Whether it is expressed through a local religion or a philosophical
ideology, is not the desire to find God lodged within the original
character of all human beings?
Through listening to the Unification Principle, I, Shankara,
have clearly realized that God has been involved in the internal
world of human beings. Now, since I know God's fundamental purpose, I
have rid myself of all of my previous thoughts. I will organize all my
thought patterns centered on Godism. And I will think over Reverend
Sun Myung Moon's theory about how to save humanity, God's love,
and the dispensational history of restoration. I will invest all that
I have to go the way of genuine truth, while thinking carefully about
everything I do.
Reverend Moon! Thank you. It is a great honor that you have
thought of the religion of Hinduism. As a representative of Hinduism,
I pledge to become a pioneer in the unification movement.
- Madwa (A pioneer of dualistic philosophy, who built
the Temple of Krishna): After listening to the Unification Principle,
I realize that we have been spending much time on things that are
pointless. There exists a Creator, a causal being, but as humanity didn't
know about the cause, neither could we know about the effect -- this
world. I, Madwa, am mortified that I spent so much time meditating and
reasoning, when that was all pointless. Of what use are arguments over
monism or dualism without the guidance originally intended for humankind?
O God! I, Madwa, have been able to find You. I did not even dream
that You are the Parent of humankind. Although we lived wrongly, now
that we have found the genuine truth in the eternal afterlife, we will
be grateful to God and start our lives over. We will absolutely obey
the guidance and teachings of Reverend Moon, who is a great leader,
a great teacher and the True Parent.
Moreover, I, Madwa, will pour all my energy into completely
understanding the Unification Principle. Thank you.
- Maharishi Gautama (Founder of the Niyaya philosophy and
the philosophy and practice of yoga): I was severely shocked when I
realized that God is the Parent of humankind. Even though there is an
ideal place in which God and His children should have lived together
from the time we were created, up until now, we have turned our
face away from God and have created an unprincipled history. When
I realize that we need to discard atheistic philosophy completely,
my mind is so troubled, infinitely troubled. What can I do? There is
no other way. I cannot explain how I feel. I am filled with regret,
lamentation and nausea.
The Unification Principle gives us new hope. It is so clear. God
did not create man and woman to be complicated. God gave humankind
one correct way. I feel that after having floated in a sky endlessly,
I have been rearranged and recreated as a new human being. This is not
a time for lament and regret, but rather to have new hope and energy as
I attend Reverend Moon, whom God has sent as the Messiah. Therefore,
I firmly offer my pledge.
Reverend Moon! Thank you for having called Hinduism. From the moment
we encounter this new truth, Hindus will not live quietly. I firmly
pledge to be obedient to God.
- Karl Marx (1818-1883, The founder of Marxism; born in Trier,
Germany.): I, Marx, affirm God's existence and that He is the Parent
of all humankind. I denied God and shouted loudly with confidence to
the extent that people believed me more than God. Now I'd like to reveal
my experience with God to the whole world. I felt that my theoretical
paradigm was crumbling as I listened to the Godism lecture. At the
same time my pride was damaged severely. When I listened to Godism, I
thought it was a dream, but it was not. Then a beam of light came into
my heart like a red-hot bullet.
I, Marx, have met God. I have found that He is the Parent of
humankind. I have felt the greatness of God's love. I clearly convey
to you who God is. He is the Parent of humankind. Reverend Sun
Myung Moon, who is on the Earth, brought this fact to light. The Divine
Principle and Unification Thought express the original standards that
open the way to salvation, so you must read them. I ask this of you
seriously. I clearly say that I apologize for my past to God and True
Parents and love them and am proud of them.
- Lenin (Vladimir Ilich Ulyanov; 1870-1924, The leader
of the Russian Revolution, the October 1917 revolution, Chairman of
The People's Commissariat.): God certainly exists. He exists as the
Parent of humankind. In spite of that, I put myself on the vanguard
of Communist revolution with a sword in my hands, shouting out that
there are no parents. I made their hearts ache.
I announce to Communists: God, Jehovah, certainly exists
and He is the Parent of humankind. The Communist counties will perish
without fail. The ideal of Communism will be realized by its being
engrafted upon Unification Thought. I have an earnest request for you.
There is only one way for Communist countries to live and that is to
follow Reverend Moon's guidance. Please study the Divine Principle
in detail. Please receive the thought of Reverend Moon and study it
deeply. If you do so, you will attend God more truly than the thinkers
or politicians of the Free World. This is the only way to live truly. If
you follow my words, it will release me from unimaginable suffering
and agony. I beg this of you. Communist countries must re-arrange
everything as soon as possible. I met God. The spirit doesn't die,
but lives. This is my last wish, given in blood from the world of
Heaven. "God is alive. God is the Parent of humankind."
- Stalin (Joseph Vissarionovich Djugashvili, 1879-1953,
Lenin's successor, who communized Russia.): Friends in Communist
countries, I am Stalin. You have had wrong thinking. As the way you
are going is not the way you should go, you must turn to the right path as
soon as possible. One's life on the Earth determines the place one will
live in the heavenly world. Our beliefs are wrong. The worst of it is
that we deny and ignore God, who is the origin of the cosmos. The God we
denied is the Parent of humankind. God is not a theological existence,
but is our Parent.
Those at whom we laughed live well in spirit world. It is certain
that they didn't go to Hell. When we laughed at them, they and God
loved us. We live in the bottom of Hell here. Do you understand what
it means? People here don't treat each other as human beings, but as
material. If there were any means to rid myself of this pain, I would do
it. The place one dwells in the spirit world cannot be decided by power,
honor or gold. It is decided by the sincerity of your life on the
Earth. First, know and believe God and attend Him. Second, completely
clarify your way of life.
Please receive the will of Reverend Moon completely, open your
minds and build churches for the worship of God and hold worship
services. Reverend Moon reflects the image of God, even though he is
a man, and he is struggling intensely to save Communist countries. His
thought is messianic, especially for the Communist countries.
You must receive his ideology of peace immediately. I, the
dictator who denied God, cry out to all the Communist countries on
the Earth. Please believe in God and seek for Him.
- Deng Xiao Ping (1902-1997, the Chairman of Chinese Communist
Party.): Thanks be to God for forgiving the one who committed sin. Thank
you Reverend Moon for working hard to save those in Hell and in the
Friends in the Communist Party! The word that followed me was
one that made God's heart bleed. I now know that I was a terrible
sinner. Reverend Moon is the one who brought to light Unification Thought
and the Divine Principle, and he is the father of humankind named as
True Parent by God. Follow him and be guided by him. Communism
has misled humankind. God exists as the Parent of humankind. We all
became rebels against God. The spirits are destined to live here in the
spirit world. There is no way for Communists to live, but by following
Reverend Moon's guidance. This is my earnest wish and appeal.
A Letter From God
Dear Beloved True Parents, I am the God of all people. I am the God
of all people. I am the God of all people. My beloved son. My beloved
son. My beloved son, I, the God of all people, love True Parents! I love
you greatly! I hold you dearly!
How could I help but feel happiness and gratitude for you, who are my
son? If there were a word better than "love," I would like to borrow
that verb, but I can't think of a better word. Although the True
Parents reside in a deep place in my heart, I cannot adequately express
my love for you in words.
As you, the True Parents, have now succeeded in everything and have
raised everything to its true level, you are now the Savior, Messiah
and King of Kings of all of humanity!!! Because on December 25, 2001,
the Founders and representatives of Christianity and the other religions
adopted written resolutions in which they without exception resolved
to participate in realizing the peaceful unification of the cosmos,
while attending the True Parents, it is right and proper that the True
Parents are exalted in the position of True Parents of all humankind. I,
the God of all people, desire this and want to see it happen.
Despite the people of the world not yet fully understanding the
position of True Parents, because the position should be fulfilled
internally, I, the God of all people, invite the True Parents to the
position of King of Kings.
Because the True Parents have, in my place, endured countless
difficult paths, I now want to bestow upon you all of the gratitude,
inspiration, excitement and joy that I have been feeling. I want you to
inherit all that is mine.
My beloved True Parents! I have wanted to express my heart to you
for a long time, but I have not had such an opportunity. However, now
this daughter of mine has looked into my heart. This has allowed this
time to come to pass, and I would like to express to you my gratitude.
True Parents! My beloved True Parents! I want to hold you in my
bosom and not let you go! It is a waste for me to walk the floor with
my two legs. I want to hold you all night and talk to you!
I, the God of all people, have faith. I believe in the True
Parents. I know and remember all of the difficulties, pain and
suffering that you have had to endure. I have seen it all. It was all
my responsibility, yet you endured and raised a victorious standard. How
can I ever forget you? I am grateful.
I am so happy because of you. Truly, I thank you for your hard work.
My beloved True Parents, victory to you! Victory to the Saviors
of humanity! Victory to the King of Kings, True Parents!
I, the God of all people, sincerely convey this to my beloved True
