NOTE: For two days, True Father spoke at a very rapid pace and even the best interpreters were literally left in the dust. I've never seen them so exhausted after three or four hours. And as a result, it was difficult for them to provide very coherent sentences and it was difficult for me to keep up typing. In addition, the radio transmission was filled with static. Therefore, the following are provided with a serious warning label concerning the degree of accuracy. The interpreters were Lynn Kim (the first day) and Paul Rogers for the last hour on that day, and Yoko Abe (the second day). Typing and editing of these unofficial notes by Tyler Hendricks.
[At 9:09:09 a.m. on September 9, 1999, True Parents entered the meeting hall at Soo Taek Ri Training Center outside of Seoul to begin what the banner called the Ceremony for the Heaven and Earth Unification and Liberation (Chun Joo Tongil Haebang Shik). I understand that later the title was changed and "True Parents" was added to it, leading to something like: "The Liberation and Unification of the True Parents of Heaven and Earth." Father lit seven candles in front of the large offering table. True Parents bowed together before God, and then Father sat down behind the offering table and True Mother bowed to True Father. Then the entire congregation, some 5,000 in number, offered a bow from the waist (there was no room for everyone to do a full bow). True Parents then held hands, outstretched their arms and Father prayed.
After the prayer there was a series of formal bows, representing the three nations of Korea, Japan and America, the six continents, the four major religions, the National Messiahs, the relatives of the True Family, the Abel and Cain sides of the world, and the spirit world. Then we all recited the Family Pledge and sat down. Father then asked Rev. Chung Hwan Kwak to speak.]
Rev. Kwak: This is 1999.9.9, 9:09:09 and True Father is 79. The total is nine 9's. I am so sorry that I do not know the deep meaning of this ceremony today. Father creates the providence and the holy days and later we understand the providential meaning.
Eighty-four days after his departure from Korea Father has come back and given us this providential blessing, and we thank him for that. If we know the principle, we know that God created Adam and Eve based on love. Through the completion of the love of God, not just humankind but the angelic world and all creation would have been in the position of elder son and established the realm of the elder son. That would not have finished with Adam and Eve's perfection as individuals, but they would have received the blessing, completed the couple's perfection centered on God and had children centered on God. That was to be the second perfection of creation. They would have established the realm of kingship, and their lineage would have spread through the universe. When Adam and Eve fell, the entire purpose of creation was attacked and lost. The ideal beings of creation would not just have stayed on earth but would have gone into the spirit world and attended God. This would have been the Kingdom of God in Heaven. But it was all broken.
The results of the fall bore fruit on the earth. True love, life and lineage were destroyed by the archangel, who was a servant. Everything came under the dominion of Satan, including God and His ideal of love. In the position of God, Satan started false love, life and lineage. God could not demonstrate His nature. Because we failed to fulfill our portion of responsibility, the realm of true love could not appear. We had to subjugate Satan, but in the fallen history God could not directly guide us or force us to do anything. So we could not understand the providence of God. As false children of Satan, we could not understand God. In that situation, no matter what, since Satan had subjugated Adam and Eve, God had to conditionally separate mankind into those closer and farther from him, to create the realm of the elder son. God selected people who could stand on the side of peace and unification.
In True Father's vocabulary are the words Chun Shik-heaven and earth. We understand heaven by virtue of the teachings about spirit world, given by True Parents since the 1960s. In the prayers at the historic ceremonies, Father connected the activities on earth to the spirit world and proclaimed those things, and has kept awakening us to the reality of the spirit world and has established a bridge between physical world and spirit world. True Father created so many such holy days. In the 1970s there were so many, and many more in the 1980s. In their lifetime, True Parents were working to establish the realm of the elder son, parents and king from the individual up, to the people, nation and world. There were indemnity conditions that only True Parents know, to close the mouth of Satan and prevent him from accusing. We can understand the providence of these days through the prayers that Father prayed on those occasions, especially the restoration of elder son, parents and king.
There were so many acts to restore the realm of the elder son in the Old Testament Age, at the time of Jesus and in the New Testament Age. In the Old Testament Age they offered the sacrifice of all things. Then Jesus came and established the condition for spiritual salvation throughout the world. The providence of the Christian realm affected the whole world; the whole world came to relate together centered on Jesus. Then, after the second world war, if the victorious realm of the Christian world had attended True Parents as their Abel, then the Christian foundation could have connected to the providence and within a few years the world could have been restored.
But the Korean Christians could not fulfill that responsibility, and Father, who should have stood on that foundation, had to go out to the wilderness. He had to go forth to pay indemnity and establish the realm of the elder son by following a miserable course. In the midst of that, we were not able to help him. We really didn't know in advance and could not comfort or encourage him. We have been unfaithful.
True Parents centered these decisive foundations of the providence on the national level in Korea. But they had to take care of the world at the same time. They made the absolute elder son realm and parental realm and established the HSA-UWC foundation to unify Christianity. Since Christianity did not recognize the Messiah, the Unification Church members received the blessing instead of them. That blessing of true love, life and lineage was lost by the human ancestors and no one had been able to enjoy it. We received it beginning with the 3 couples to the 36 couples, through 9 stages to 1992 when it was globalized with the 30,000 couples in the first WCSF. Then, in 1995, there were 360,000 couples, in 1997, 3.6 million and also 36 million were reached through spirit world and True Parents, equaling 40 million. Then on June 13, 1998 at Madison Square Garden True Parents mediated the blessing of 120 million couples.
Based on that, True Parents made the 7.8 holy day, the declaration of the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath for the Parents of Heaven and Earth, so that all beings could be embraced in God's true love. This had to expand to the world level, so that True Parents could speak to and bless anyone in the world, beyond Satan's accusation. The proclamation of the Cosmic Sabbath made this possible. Our True Parents kept pushing us out; you all remember how they pushed us. We established external conditions and they established the internal ones, during the preparation for the 360 million couple blessing. In the Pantanal, May 14-16, 1998, True Parents proclaimed that he opened even the gates of hell in spirit world. Even God could not open them, because they were in the realm of Satan. In place of Adam and Eve, only True Parents could do that.
Why were the conditions so difficult for the early, small blessings? Because Satan's foundation was so strong, and True Parents' so weak, we could not block the accusation of Satan. Therefore they had to bless small numbers to open the gate little by little. To spread the blessing to the world, True Parents had to remove Satan, and they did so in heaven and on earth, in front of God. They opened the gates of heaven on that foundation. The evil people, then, could be blessed in the same way.
So, 1998, June 13, just before the 120 million blessing in America, True Parents had to bring together the saints in spirit world and bless them to people on earth. They even brought out the worst murderers in hell into the blessing ceremony. True Parents had established the conditions to do that, opening the gates of hell. I am so ashamed, because even at that time, as I was doing that ceremony, I was in a state of awe, incredulity and amazement. Then through True Parents' prayer I could discover that it was not just the realm of Satan that could not relate to True Parents and receive the blessing, but that there were no realms at all that could relate to True Parents and be blessed. So True Parents went through so much in order to relate to them and be able to forgive them. True Parents went through so much resentment and grief, feeling what Satan felt, to make those conditions that Satan had to recognize. Using the principles of Heaven, True Parents proclaimed, spoke and decided according to those principles to bless even those who could not fit into the principles of heaven. Only he can know the extent of that course.
Satan has so much resentment, but not as much as True Parents have. Satan has evil and we can relate to him easily and do evil things, but True Parents cannot; they must relate to heaven and follow the principles of heaven, representing the grief and resentment of God, and work with the enemies of heaven and forgive them. So the grace of June 13 is so great.
On that foundation, on Feb 7, 1999, with the 360 million blessing and the start of the 400 million blessing campaign, our goal is to completely root out Satan through the completion of the true blessing. We have been pulling out the root of Satan on the earth, and we are blessing young people and even little babies and babies in the womb, through the purity candy and the prayer ceremonies to remove the blood lineage of Satan. With that amazing goal, our True Parents have been racing forward without rest. Restoration of the realms of true elder son, parents and king is based upon restoration of the lineage, from the root, not on earth alone but also in spirit world. Throughout history, to realize all this, True Parents have carried out a providence we do not know about through the course of Heung Jin Nim and Daemo Nim in spirit world.
Father: Daemo Nim has carried out the role of mother-in-law and Heung Jin Nim that of elder son, linking the family in the spirit world. Centered on the family, and True Parents' actual physical parents, my mother [Choongmo Nim], my direct lineage linking to spirit world goes through Heung Jin Nim and mother's through Daemo Nim. This makes a realm in spirit world. In Jesus' age there was the Holy Spirit with Jesus as the True Parents in spirit world. We have been setting the foundation for a lineage on earth. The Cain realm is being released. We need love connecting heaven and earth, the entire cosmos. We have the completion of the individual blessing, family and tribe. As the blessed couples become one, this brings together the spirit world and physical world. The realm of heaven becomes resolved centered on true Adam. This is the unification of heaven and earth centered on God, with God as vertical parents and True Parents as horizontal parents. Now we have the proclamation of the True Parents of heaven and earth.
Nine is the number controlled by Satan and we need to go beyond it. In Christianity, we have tithing based on the number 10. Nine represents the satanic realm, so God's restoration requires a tithe to go on to the 10th step, representing the realm of God. So the Abel realm goes out to the various levels, the individual, family, tribe and so on.
Christianity stood in a Cain-Abel relationship in 1948. The Holy Spirit was like the mother to bring everything together. So the spiritual parents had to be there, but Jesus could not be substantial, so we had the coming of substantial True Parents. Confucianism, Catholicism and Protestantism were fighting. They should have united. Rome connected many countries at Jesus' time. If they had become one, through the individual and family love, that could have spread to the world through Rome. Unfortunately, Rome was not prepared that way and tried to do everything through money. Rome had the potential to reach the world, if they had united as Cain with Israel as Abel.
Always there is Cain and Abel, for example, Muslims and Christians. If Cain and Abel unite, Satan's realm will be broken. Communism and democracy were Cain and Abel on the world level. Communists deny God; they say God died. To cope with that, we had to unite the world as brothers and sisters to restore the brother-sister relations that were broken. Broken brother-sister relations means the division of the nations and races. So we needed to do blessings beyond race and nation, centered on God. We had so much opposition, from the family, nation and world. All the world religions should have united with this, but they were saying that we were breaking down families and nations. But anyway those things need to be broken down.
We have the battle of mind and body. Without mind-body unity, God cannot connect. He cannot connect on the basis of money, authority, or power but only true love. True love can unite mind and body and bring God down. True love means investing and forgetting, again and again. It requires doing it and wanting to do more. The individual for the family, family for the people, people for nation, nation for world and world for God. God has created the cosmos, and is carrying out the restoration of the cosmos. Evil people cannot go to that level because they are living for themselves. But we are living for the higher level. Then finally God is living for me. He is investing for me, and I am investing representing God. God is loving the creation in order to have the freedom of the ideal of creation, which is the realm of conscience.
The conscience of humankind has to come through the experience of mind-body unity. You have to do that by yourself. Man and woman have to be together, work as a couple and love their children with unique, absolute, eternal, unchanging love. They are absolute objects to God who is the absolute subject. We have to become one with the internal nature of God and represent God. We are to reflect what He has invested into us, which is absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal. You are individual truth bodies. What you leave behind on earth is whatever you contribute. Leave behind your lineage, your conscience, in the place of God.
Resemble God's unique, absolute, eternal, unchanging love. We can become one with God and be the object of His love, of Heaven. Then the world of creation expands and we can exercise the creativity of God. Creativity is from the subject-object relationship, as on the level of minerals and every level, including male and female animals, too. Can a man and woman leave their positions? No, their identity as man or as woman is absolute. The creative nature and subject-object relationship is based on give and take action.
The fallen world is a world of relative relationships, including those between parents and children, teachers and students and so forth. They need to unite based on true subjectivity. Man and woman unite together. Why? To find love. If the man is alone, he cannot act as a subject loving his wife. Only if they are together can he be a creative subject.
To create the world of heaven, including all the ancestors, God had to bring them back into His realm. He had to bring them out of the realm of false life, love and lineage. Jesus died alone, so all the people after Jesus lived alone. But we are born to live together eternally. The lonely position started with the fall. The angelic world and earth were connected centered on false love, so Satan would work on the earth. So God and Satan are fighting. Who will end that fight? God sought to recreate Adam. As He did so, Satan would accuse and accuse. So they kept fighting. The realms of politics and economy and so forth were based on Satan. Who can solve it? The false parents born of Satan? No, nothing can be accomplished by false parents. The highest priority, therefore, was to resolve the false lineage.
So we accuse Satan, that he stole from God, that he is a liar. He had to admit that this is true. There was no lawyer for him; there was judgment. Who will resolve this in history? The presidents of Korea? They are ignorant of this. I went forth and established it. So, the elder son, America, has to become one with Korea. In the past, restoration came through mother and son, and now we are in the realm to unite everything and the father and son will cooperate. With Japan in the position of mother, if the Korean and American presidents become one, we need to move China. We need to center on God and have everything center on God. Only True Parents know how to connect the presidents of nations to God's providence. All the problems created by the false life, love and lineage have to be resolved. The True Parents are creating the liberating power to get rid of Satan completely up to the realm of king and to bring the realm of True Parents and liberate the whole world. All social problems, youth immorality, and so on can be resolved only in this way. No one, not the rich, not the Mafia, can handle it. Only the son of God. When God and Satan conflict and we can resolve it, people have to listen.
Unless you unite your mind and body you cannot go to heaven. The nation has to protect the family. It is difficult for the small to survive, but the big people are gaining greater access. Is the unification of the world difficult? What is today? The unification and liberation of heaven and earth? This is the Kingdom of Heaven in spirit world and earth. We are establishing a home on the earth, restoring the world to the state as if Adam and Eve had not fallen and ending all the separations. How can we organize it all? Everyone has to open their doors. We are creating a great river that will flow the opposite way, up to the source, to the top of the mountain. It is the water of true utopian love that will flow throughout the world. Then everything will be resolved naturally. Then the Kingdom of Heaven will come on earth.
We are a great people of history. Do the ministers know this? No. Only the True Parents. Only the True Parents know how to win the battle of mind and body. Do I need people? (Yes.) Why should I? (joking) The True Parents do not not not need people, or do we? (Father is playing with negatives). To whom do the True Parents belong? The mind! The mind! Those who absolutely believe in True Parents have completed individual perfection. Are they absolute? A woman who is absolute ... who are they? Well, Rev. Kwak was in the process of finishing his speech and now I'm taking up his time. But I've come a long way to get here and there's no time, so now it's my time to talk.
We should be able to say that God and True Parents are absolutely mine. What is good about the Unification Church? I have this flat face. All the western people have distinct features but Korean features are so flat. Which will God like? What about me? Why would I like Koreans? Both Japan and Korea have opposed me so much. Did they follow you? The past presidents of Korea ... did they succeed? President Park was killed. They sold away the realm of the kingship. They were like broken water bottles. They ended up in jail. They tried to do away with us. So when True Mother spoke at the Korean congress, some looked at it as a coup d'etat. Hers was a hopeful lecture. I tell our leaders just to tell the CIA what I'm doing; don't make them work hard to find out. America will just destroy itself if they don't follow the way of God's will that I am showing. I don't really need Korea, but the providence does. The problem of communism and democracy cannot be resolved without me, but we will see what happens.
To whom do your mouth, eyes, nose, ears and hands belong? Everything belongs to True Parents. We have to have creativity and absolute love, not relative love. Do you like someone who changes a lot? Such a person makes us uncomfortable. That which is unchanging is like a diamond. All the things of the universe that don't change are beloved. So you want to be like a diamond. What's a diamond? We have diamond rings, and you give diamonds to show that your love won't change. If you put two rings together, you get a whole. So we use rings at marriage. The ring should be on the heart, not the finger. What is the reason for earrings? Girls like to put them on their ears in order to attract men. They symbolize the sexual organ.
Because so many people followed me, I was accused of brainwashing, but I was only clearing out their mind and heart. If I keep talking like this, it will go all day. Here's an eighty year-old man in front of you. Should I be dancing? In order to become True Parents you have to talk well, be strong, smart and witty. You have to be able to fight if necessary, so that all the women will react positively. You have to be a man whom every woman would want and all men would follow.
[To an individual in the audience:] Are you a member? Do you want to follow me or someone else? To whom do the True Parents belong? You have to be able to say, "The True Parents belong to me; they are mine." Is that your wife? Whose wife is it? [To the sister:] Are you living with your husband? Are you planning to in the future? Are you living with him because you have to? If you are, then you can start to love him. In the Unification Church, God will appear and say "Do not marry someone of your own lineage or nation." A Moon should not marry a Moon; don't marry your close relations or in-laws. You must be able to love your enemies. If you can love an enemy more than you love your family and even marry one of them, then heaven will come to earth. Therefore many Japanese and Koreans were married together. How many here are international blessings? How many are Japanese/Korean? Korea and Japan are enemies, so how could you marry each other? Are you all going to divorce? Why are you smiling like that? What's your wife's nationality? You are happy, but you never sent me a thank you card or invited me out for dinner. Can your children love both Korea and Japan? Can you make your wife into an object of love even more than if she were Korean? You need to bring the two nations together, to make a nation that can go into heaven. Is that not worth trying?
On days like this, I have to speak, but if I speak I have so many things to say. Let's take off our jackets. [The room was very hot.]
True Parents are to be mine. Therefore I must give the most precious thing I have to keep and be worthy of them. I have to do something to make my True Parents mine. If you take them without payment, you are a bunch of thieves. Would you invest your people, your nation and your ancestors? If so, those people also will have the True Parents.
If you cannot sacrifice everything in heaven and on earth, you cannot have True Parents. The True Parents are the most valuable thing to attend. Where do you put the most valuable thing? Do you sacrifice everything you have, or keep hold of it? The most precious thing in the world, do you understand? Are you sacrificing everything? Yes or no? [The answer from the crowd is a soft yes] If you value your house or country too much, you will lose everything. The Japanese are taking unjustly. You've been taking advantage of Korea for a long time.
You have to find True Parents. Traditionally, Japanese would marry women of any nation other than Korea. The word for house in Japanese is "eyeh," which also means "no," so to keep a house is a negative thing. Foolish people do that. "Bacca" means foolish and also means "eighth husband." You said the True Parents are mine, so it is principled to offer your house, nation and everything. If you are a believer, you don't apologize for doing this.
North Korea is a country on Satan's side and today is Kim Il Sung Day, so we have to change that, bringing that country to God's side. If True Parents belong to us, repeat that. What are you doing here? You have to make a determination. Understand what you are doing and never say you are sorry you couldn't make it. Today is the day to eliminate all the satanic power, so don't say you're sorry or you can't make it. Put our hands on the floor and from your palms to the top of your head, go the way of indemnity. Redetermine here to go this path from now on.
However cute you are, the most important thing is that you are blessed by True Parents. Do you prefer a name only or a body as well? If you don't like your husband, would you rather have a handsome man? Fallen women think they want a fine handsome man. If you can overcome that thinking, you are home free. God approves when you overcome your desire for that kind of love. Give yourself, your life, give everything to God. You have to indemnify the subject position. Those who finished the living offering, raise your hands. 100% of the Japanese completed it. If you want to make True Parents your own, do you do it by yourself? Does not Father have to approve it? Become people with one focus, not two foci. "Nihon," the word for Japan, also means second, or two. Should you be in the second or the first position? "Il bon" (number 1) also is a word for Japan. Therefore, there should be only one ownership. Only thieves complain about true ownership. This couple gave so many donations. What is a donation? It comes from a healthy giver. Money relates to the male organ. [Laughter] But the golden donation that you give will remain forever, eternally. Women need golden balls (in Japanese, the testicles are referred to as golden balls).
Do you want to eat lunch or continue? It's your decision. [Continue!] If you could have all of heaven and earth, what would you do with it? Hey, it doesn't look as if you agree with me. Do you realize the value of having True Parents? True Parents have tens and thousands of times the value of anything you have today.
[I missed several minutes looking for an electrical outlet.]
You don't need to read all of Buddha's writings. The main point is the a man needs a woman and a woman a man. Mrs. Choi, do you miss Buddha? I have prepared the way for you, just follow the path. There are so many saints in the spirit world who are waiting to be blessed to people here. They've been waiting for tens of thousands of generations and now I have blessed them.
Whose wife are you? Confucius? You've received a wonderful blessing. Confucius talked about horizontal values, not vertical values. A woman is born from the womb and receives the parents' love. This blossoms into man-woman love, and the parents should love their children beyond anything. Love has a power even greater than that of life. In order to live, we need love. Even death cannot prevail over love. Without sacrificing yourself in the fallen realm you cannot go to heaven. It was so difficult to bless couples in the past, but now you can bless people in the street and I've even heard of people being blessed in the bathroom. That's really different from how it started, but I've established the conditions.
Mr. Choi, you are a third son, but why are you so small? Is your wife here? Your wife is Rev. Kwak's daughter. I know your father wanted a big son; is he disappointed? If you want to dance, even your hands have to dance. It may be difficult to be matched to each other. You as a couple have to meet and move together. I'm hoping for this and God is hoping for it. So we have been giving the blessing throughout the world and I think we can conquer the world by the blessing. Are you going to run to the blessing, or fly there on a flying horse? Take care of your mission and fly there. Do your responsibility. With those conditions, go forward. It is not enough to talk well; you have to live well. Don't say good things and then live an animal-like existence.
We have to mix life, love and lineage. Mix them together completely, then the seed goes in and we put it in the soil and it grows. Then love comes down vertically and mixes horizontally. Parents' love is like the bone. The father, not the mother, is the lord. Parents are able to give up their lives for their children. That comes down from God. It doesn't disappear, but comes back up and re-circulates. The person who participates in his parents' love can fulfill the role of parents. The parents cannot be separated. Together they look like heaven.
Parents and children cannot separate. Children are the fruit of the parents' love, life and lineage. The parents want the children to be better than them. The father wants his daughter to be better than his wife, and the mother wants the son to exceed his father. Then do we want our relatives to be better than our family? We should. So everything is connected vertically and horizontally, and in a circle it goes around. So the parents have to be absolute. They emerge from the substantiation of the absolute, unchanging, unique and eternal God, so they need to be that way, have that love, live with God and inherit from God. So then what is the parents' is the children's, what is the children's is the parents', what is the family's is the tribe's, and what is the cosmos's is God's and what is God's is mine. It starts from the individual, goes up to God, and comes back to the individual. It starts small, goes up and gets big, and comes back bigger than it started. If a friend sends you a $100 gift, you want to send back more, not $90, but $110. If you live for others, a true connection is formed. If parents live for 100 people, all those 100 will live for the parents. When that environment is established, everyone will cry out, mansei. To accomplish that, I could not rest my entire life.
People had been saying that we would establish that foundation in 10 or 20 years, and now it is really happening. So should you believe me or not? If so, put your hands on the floor, representing the earth, and say that you'll be that son and daughter. [YES]
How does the life, love and lineage go from the parents? The sperm is the father's and the egg the mother's. Which is the main one? Answer! You have to know the basics. The sperm go in and swim around and go into the egg. So the sperm penetrate the egg, meaning that the man is like the bone and the woman the flesh. Women! The word, woman, in Korean is "yoja." "Jayo" means to sleep, so women want to sleep at night. Women pray with a soft voice, especially at the time of blessing they pray for a good marriage. When people think they can do whatever they want without taking responsibility for the blessing, they just go through it without taking responsibility, that's not right. Pray earnestly about your blessing and take responsibility for it.
Ministers don't curse at their members, but a father can to his children, so I do to you. I can call you chashik (an insulting word for "son"). Since I'm the father, I can say that. If I were just a minister, I couldn't. We have to go through the three ages, the Old Testament Age, New Testament Age and Completed Testament Age, establish the realm of the elder son and plant the seeds for the realm of the parents. Until now in history the elder son was not born. God sent Jesus as His only son, which is amazing. The condition necessary for the messiah is to be the only son of God. Then where do the women go? Women have a womb in order to have a clean child of God. No one wants dirty children from a dirty lineage, so all wombs were weeping until now. There was so much terrible hell and wombs were creating improper children. You all came out of the womb and you are the product not only of her flesh and blood but also of her love. Because of your mother's love, life and lineage you were born. No one can deny that. But women are not born for the sake of being a woman, but for a man. From the beginning that was true. It's not just once, but eternally. The absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal love of God cannot change. In a woman a man finds his absolute object of love. You have to find children and grandparents whom you can love. The purpose of being born a woman is to be there for your husband. From the time your husband was in the womb he was there for you.
After the children's age is the age of brother and sister, in which man and woman are separated. Then comes the engagement stage and step by step up to the grandparents' age, eight stages in all. People haven't known that; they thought they were living for themselves. God wants to become the subject and Lord of love. Don't you want to become lords of love, as husbands, wives and families of love? You can eternally center your life on that alone. Men think they are great, but without a wife you cannot know love. Until you women seek the love of your husband, you don't know eternal love.
Even from the womb you are in that status. Going through all the stages is for the sake of becoming lords of love. Each stage leads to the next. By having that eternal hope, we need a movement for harmony. We have come onto the earth for that reason. The womb is the age of water. While on earth we receive its elements. We work on the earth. The earth is the growth stage mother and the spirit world is the completion stage mother. I am born in order to realize these three stages. So we must be grateful to the universe and heaven. God has loved us in all three stages. When we die we become a seed again and go from earth to the spirit world. We have to realize that we are born to be objects of the love of God, who is in the Kingdom of heaven in spirit world. If we don't relate to God but consider it all our own, we are like thieves living in the realm of thieves.
I am the king of the families of the earth. I have been blessing so many and creating so many, I am the king of families. No one can argue with that. For thousands of years since the fall, there were so many families, but we are expanding the dominion of God in one age, changing the earth into the Kingdom of Heaven and liberating God. It was as if God were in prison. When you hear this, doesn't it make you feel good? You want to meet your father who is doing this. But I cannot do whatever I want. I am such a formidable person; no one can tempt me or drag me away.
There are stages of the baby, the brother and sister, and so forth, and I have to be the subject or Lord of each one. There are the age of engagement and age of the family. Because I have this standard, we have the unification of the parents of heaven and earth, of the cosmos. Those who do not believe or understand this think we are crazy, but in the Unification Church we know this is true. When I hear the Principle, I feel that everything is possible.
Can you understand me? Okay. What are words beginning with 'O'? Opinion. Olta (means "right"). Korea means kitchen, kingdom, king, knowledge, K.O. means knock out. What stage are you at? That of a baby? Of parents? You are born to become True Parents. What realm are you in? Are you going to stay at your mother's knees? Are you ready to be engaged? To be married? To be parents and grandparents? To become kings and queens? That's what you should do. What is that centered on? Every stage is striving to attain the next higher one. The next stage beyond that of king is to attend God.
But what are you doing? You are using Father to advance yourselves. Don't do that; rather, become kingly people. Raise your hands if you want to be kingly children. We have to have an age in which we can inherit the realm of being children of God. It is all in order to enter the realm of kingship. The parents have to be best and this holds for all parents. If my spouse, parents and grandparents are kings, those three generations complete the foundation. From the time you are conceived in the womb, you are destined to become one with the kingship position of your husband.
To do this, we go through the process of re-creation, in which we have to invest ourselves. We've had three seven year courses and made so much effort, and we have to become victorious and so we pray. For what do we pray? To have nice clothes to wear? You dress for the cosmos and heaven. You have to be able to welcome God to the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth, and be able to bow to the eternal God and be able to obey Him completely.
How many spiritual children do you have? It doesn't matter what you are doing; you can't live alone. You have to go on and do what God wants. If you are born for the eight stages of reciprocal relationships, through the Cain-Abel process you have to restore every level. You have to bless all the Cain and Abel realms in the name of True Parents. Then we can cut off the satanic world. We have to be able to bless so many and bring people into ...
There are nine 9's today; we have to go on to the higher stage. The number after nine 9's (999,999,999) is one billion (1,000,000,000). By the year 2000 we should bring 2 billion people into the blessing realm of the Unification Church. Then if I have the means of communication, we can broadcast about true love to all people, whether day or night. People will attend, and those who don't will miss the benefits and probably fall prey to the results of all the immorality out there. The age is coming when people need to understand about true love or the natural law of heaven will discipline them. This attractive content is so simple, isn't it? Or is it difficult? The attractive words are not so easy. If you want to live the easy way, you can have an attractive tie and pretty skirt and be unfaithful. Then Satan says, hey, that's my guy. But we are going to break down the walls of hell, not be dragged into it.
I'm thinking about how to bring you out of hell and into heaven. We have to have the spirit of the subject, the subjectivity of God and have that relationship in a relative world, and we have to unify things. Why? Because of love. First match your eyes to the person you love. In Korea we talk about matching the eyes.
I keep perspiring. Do you like to see it or not? If you don't, can you perspire for me? The baby that is born for the eight stages is conceived in the mother and grows inside her. God protects our children. We need to have a beautiful area in which they can grow as filial children, in which they can grow up to be saints and patriots to their nation. First we are family level saints and then we get to the realm of the elder son of God. Then we enter the realm of kingship, as a parent and king, where we can have subjectivity. In the age of obedience, have you ever tried to live in perfect obedience through him? Have you met that kind of husband? There is the age of children, of brother and sister, of engagement, of marriage, of the flowering perfume of love, then of parents, of grandparents, and up to the realm of kingship and standing before God. There we offer the eight stages, inherit everything from God, enter the realm of absolute obedience to God, become good people and receive 120% in return.
As we reach the completion stage, it is so difficult. I have pioneered it and made a highway for you. You are wondering if you can follow me into the kingdom. So you have made a lot of debts before me. I've gone through such a difficult course into order to establish this path for you. I compacted 4,000 years into 40 years, through indemnity, only by paying indemnity. That is what creates the kingdom of heaven out of the kingdom of Satan. The providence of salvation is the way for people to go back.
What is indemnity? The second generation people here really don't know what is going on. The time has come in which you must be responsible. A man is born for a woman and a woman for a man. You have to go through all the stages by working hard, so that you can appreciate the work that True Parents have gone through all the way up to the world level. You need to be children of filial piety, patriots, saints and divine sons and daughters. Be grateful for the amazing gift of God, to be able to enter the realm of God, leaving the realm of Satan. We have to re-bless all the families in the spirit world to bring them out of the realm of Satan, and here on earth complete the formation, growth and completion stages to accomplish restoration. Everyone should go to South America as a family. Raise your hands if you didn't go. Why didn't you go?
When are we going to unify? Everyone has to have their bags packed and be ready to move when the lord tells them, like the Israelites. Can you do that crazy stuff as people did in the Bible? When Abraham departed, everyone thought he was crazy, but it was God's direction. Moses could have been the king of Egypt, but he killed an Egyptian and left. Then he had to go out into the wilderness for 40 years, and later he went there with the people of Israel. John the Baptist went out into the wilderness too. If I were to do that, would you follow me? What if I wore a loincloth and robe of camel's hair, wandering around? Do you think John's parents liked what he was doing? Am I living well or not? I've had so many difficult days because of women; they ended up sending me to prison. You women are like baskets of [smelly stuff]. But I've been trying to bring true love to this earth. In the past there were strange women who told me to visit them because they were ill, and I'd get there late, after curfew. Then I wouldn't be able to leave and they'd say, "Oh, save me." There were so many difficulties in the past.
Without God and True Parents, what do you have? [Father talks on meaning of Pak No Hi, Pak Bo Hi and other church members named Pak, and what they're in charge of.] There is a driver named Pak. Each one of them thinks that he is the very best. So I'm thinking to make one of them a driver. It's a problem; people shouldn't think they're the best. But in many ways they failed. Why? It follows the tradition of the Christians who failed. So you have to marry among enemies. I told people not to go to graduate school, but one leader put his children there, so he had problems. I promised I'd send them later, with scholarships. Wouldn't that have been better? But now, in America, there are many children who have come to our schools, so they don't oppose us in their nations. Are the Korean people going to go to America or Russia? Where?
The UN needs a UN for youth and for religious leaders, and an upper and lower house. We need to educate youth and students through hoon dok hae readings, centering on the national messiahs. [Father had a meeting but one leader didn't attend, and Father asks him why not, and he says that only 40 countries were invited and his wasn't one of them. Father talks about individual situations - about not having to leave the country, asking what's going on; when you had meetings you made the decisions yourself, didn't you? When you say you're going to do something, you have to do it immediately.]
So what did I say? I'm saying that you have to establish things such that I can establish a nation. Cain has to submit voluntarily. Use the principle. We're at the point where the principle is not being used. You have to do as I tell you. Abel has to give to the end. You have to offer your right hand for the providence of God. I've taught you the principle of God over and over. You've gone the way of fighting, but what have you gained? National Messiahs, you really have to be able to go into the good age, the age in which you can reach out to Cain. Is this my water? [Indicating his glass.] I talk of flowing rivers and there's water for me too.
To establish the eight stages, I could not deviate from the course of heaven even for one day. From the baby stage through children, brother and sister, engagement, parents and grandparents, I was working to establish people to do that. There, people can bear fruit and grow. So the blessing of the nation ... When North and South Korea are unified, then everything has to be blessed again. To establish the conditions, how many courses of difficulty have been traversed? I had to become one with God and separate the grandsons of Satan from those of God. We have to go through the course of indemnity.
God established such a foundation through Israel, but it was lost when Jesus came, and we had to go through the Christian realm filled with blood. On Golgotha there were the two thieves; they, not the twelve disciples, established the foundation for paradise. This affects the course of history, and we are doing it and establishing a foundation people will follow. So what we are doing is so important, and we have to establish the kingly dominion.
The Christians and presidents of Korea cast out the one who could have become the Lord. I could have established all the conditions, but the media opposed us and called us dangerous. I went through communism and persuaded them, and had ministers come. 1,700 leaders listened to hoon dok hae for 3 days, and all agreed to be blessed and this happened in Korea, and it is the foundation to multiply it throughout the world. So many people opposed ... [Rev. Kwak: no one opposed] Why? One would almost expect that someone should have opposed, but no one opposed. I thought the hoon dok hae would create opposition, but I pushed Rev. Kwak to do it and it was very successful.
John the Baptist and other such men of faith were spies in the realm of Satan and I've done that too. Centering on the Koreans and Asians, women have to take the lead role in the providence. University women presidents should do it. Dr. Lee, you don't have a husband on earth, just in spirit world. What does it mean to live for the True Parents? Through the True Parents, you have the value of the only son of 10,000 generations or millions of generations. I have pioneered the way for you to inherit this. Do you know it, or just believe it? This is all we have. Read the Family Pledge over and over. I've taught you all that content. If you can truly actualize it as patriots, saints and divine sons and daughters, you'll be the spies of God on the earth. Don't just eat until you're full; gain the subjective nature and go around the world and circle around and go to the world of heaven. Recreation and resurrection; I've been doing this; it works like that.
So we have 400 Japanese couples and 100 Japanese without their spouse, totaling 900 people. How many Korean couples are there here? 2,000. So this is important. We have to make a special fund so the people who came ... [Rev. Kwak told me that the fund will be for Hoon Dok Hae education projects worldwide.] Everyone should make an offering to commemorate this day. This day creates a highway between top of the mountain and bottom of the valley. We need a condition of indemnity. Did you make the liberation offering for Daemo Nim? I heard people have been very serious about this offering. The content behind it calls forth tears. So we have to teach it until people understand the depth. There will be problems if we don't do that. The satanic realm is carrying guns and knives. If you are inspired to offer everything you have, you should not hesitate to do that. You don't want to be caught by Satan. Who would you ruin by doing it? You have to do it for your own sake. Don't hesitate at the wrong moment. I'm such an ominous person in relation to what I have to do. Even if I have to reveal the consequences of sin, you have to be very honest about the effects of selfishness, otherwise there will be problems. Living according to your own desires has a bad effect upon your sons and daughters. Those who do whatever they want, arguing, complaining and criticizing are crazy. I hope they come to their senses.
Rev. Kwak, this person has artistic talent; you have to take care of such people. Make an association of your lineage. The Han lineage and the Choi lineage should be united. It was a Choi who sent me to prison. All of them spread false rumors. It is frightening what people can do. Sung Jin's mother and Hyo Jin made unity, and Won Pil Kim - his family are the in-laws. So the family is complicated; people just want to live their own way. The Hongs - they've really created a history. The indemnity is great. For three generations, my fathers died for the country, outside the home. When mansei was being cried out in the headquarters when we had new children, so many amazing dreamlike things happened. Hee Jin Nim died; the second one died outside the home. If you don't listen to what I'm saying and pay the indemnity, there's no guarantee these things won't happen to anyone.
Who will believe America when America falls? We have the complete ideology to bring all levels back to God, with all connections made at a 90 degree angle, so we can unite everything. There are so many people, ideas, attitudes and ideologies, but we need to be able to unite. Each of us has to do our own vigils and establish our own towers of devotion and work for the kingdom. Young people; don't worry about going to secular colleges. Rather, attend the theological school, UTS or our seminary in Korea, to lead the world back to God. The school you graduated from has no value if you can't lead the world back to God. We need to separate the true and false traditions. So many children clung to their parents' skirts and their parents told them not to go out. This blocked the providence. You should follow the providence.
When I went to my parents' graves, my relatives wept so much but I was calm, in order to establish the realm of the elder son. When Heung Jin Nim died, I offered him to the providence. As the parent who has been trying to establish the way for everyone, I went through so much opposition, loving the Cain realm before my own children. Through Mrs. Hyo Nam Kim [Daemo Nim's medium], my mother told me that if I had said even one word about my responsibility while I was growing up, she would have helped me. So in a way I was not a filial son. But I had to do the work of God.
Who will stand up to take responsibility for the problems of society, for family breakdown? This is our present responsibility. Even if you offer your property, you will find it was a necessary step. If you believe this, put up your hands. Do you understand? To represent the country, are you going to use your money for the world or not? That depends on you. There's nothing more frightening or terrible than misusing money. I know from my own experiences. I'll explain. We have not attained the unification of North and South Korea, and it depends upon me. It is the work of True Parents. You need to become the arms and legs of True Parents. True Parents are absolutely necessary for individuals and families. You should feel we are "my True Parents, our family's True Parents." A family that cannot love True Parents cannot prosper. Such who love True Parents become absolute, unchanging families.
The family has to invest itself for the lineage. I've lived this way myself; you know how much I've sacrificed for this. Why do I sacrifice so much for the world, when I could make a little [realm for my own personal happiness]? Why did I endure being persecuted by scholars, politicians, and the top classes in America and Asia? Many of them now are repenting of this. So now we are in the position to create a country.
You have to understand my words through hoon dok hae. It may have been difficult in the beginning, but now you can understand that it is the way to create the great Heavenly Kingdom. If a president commits sin, his fortune is completely lost. You have to follow heavenly order, heavenly law and fulfill the demands of the law and the course I have followed. As the Bible says, a country that doesn't follow God's will will be consumed by fire. The only point is how to reach perfection, and after that reaching God. I want you to understand to your bones what I've explained to you. You need to establish a foundation not through your words but through your actions.
When you are blessed, you make a donation. It's an important condition to make an offering when you receive a blessing. Have you fulfilled? Do you make excuses? Representative families have to pay indemnity to cover for the other families who do not fulfill. Is it better to believe me or not believe me? Will fulfilling that help or hinder your blessing? Is it clear or not? Wake up your ancestors in spirit world.
Those of you who think you can get the blessing for nothing are like thieves. Even in this IMF period, you should not think I'm going to take care of you. You have to succeed even in this difficult period. But you still think that I have to support and take care of you. We have to use our resources worldwide. Offer a sacrifice and be purified. By your response I will understand what your spirit is. This is the last proclamation to be made except for that of the unification of North and South and of Heaven and Earth.
If you lose your clothes and are naked, but can receive the blessing, would you be happy? When you make love, you take off even your underwear, right? Why don't you answer me? When you make love, do you keep your pants on or not? Even if you have to throw them in the air, that's what you do, right? That's the true way of couples who love each other. Wouldn't you like to get rid of your clothes that are full of sin and Satan's tradition? This is the opportunity for you to remove those clothes. Stand in that position as blessed families and don't be unfaithful. The most precious part for God and for human beings is the sexual organs. Are you ashamed when your husband goes to the toilet naked? Even if you are naked but receive the blessing, won't you prosper? Do you prefer to wear clothes or be naked? Do you want to do that? As husband and wife, you should go to bed without any pajamas. Do you feel you have to keep your position in front of God and keep pure [and therefore leave your clothes on]? But in front of God, you can wear transparent clothes or better still take everything off. In front of God, if you have unchanging, absolute and eternal love ...
We are entering an historical period of unsurpassed opportunity. You should know this. Formation, growth or perfection? Is it a three position or four position foundation? When you exercise eternal, unchanging ... one, two, three you should repeat: unchanging, absolute and unique love. You've never felt that way before, have you? You should know that heavenly law is a terrifying thing. I am absolutely following heavenly law. I am taking responsibility to solve all the problems and promulgate a new heavenly law. We need to be the children who can follow that heavenly law. We must climb a steep path, and that path is where we can receive a blessing from God or be taken by Satan. Satan is always behind, waiting for an opportunity. All blessed families in the spirit world and physical world, please understand to your bones that Satan is waiting to attack all the blessed families. So all of you blessed families should work together to accomplish for God. Raise your hands! Amen! Amen! Amen! It's another opportunity to give, to offer, to break through to a new level.
You should be so devoted in heart that you can come to Korea; it's okay. Bring your relatives and live here. And in South America there's plenty of land. We own more than 600,000 hectares of land in South America; it's a huge area. You need to be so determined before Heaven that you would walk all the way to South America if you had to. Make preparation to do that. Then you prepare for an ideal family and ideal home with me in South America. That land will be 10 times more valuable in the future. Now is the opportunity. You've got to fulfill that within forty days.
On the 10th of October there's a festival in which 195 countries will be represented. I want to use that money with 20 representatives of these countries. [I think Father is referring to the third IIFWP conference.] The people around the world should be able to see me, and transportation is necessary. We need to speed up education in the unification tradition for children. Should I make a speaking tour around the 50 states of America, or throughout Korea, or throughout Japan? Americans, you think you are number one, but are you? No. [In English; cannot be heard.] American members, what do you want to do? How many times more should America give than Japan? No matter how difficult, you are to be perfect. Can you do it? If you cannot, then get down.
This is the last opportunity to offer an historical donation in front of heaven and to be proud in front of heaven. It is to see north-south unity and the unity of heaven and earth. It is to create a golden gate for the unity of north and south and Asia and the world, and the unity of the physical world and spirit world. I can go to North Korea; there is no place I cannot go. I will not go alone, but take famous people with me.
What shall we do this evening? A cultural activity at 7 p.m.? Assemble tomorrow at 10:10 a.m. We need to make a promulgation at 10:10 a.m. Today was the promulgation of the unification of the cosmos. Satan will be in the position even to cooperate with this providence. So, have you had lunch? Why are you laughing? Do you prefer to hear my speech or eat lunch? The spirit world will open up if you read hoon dok hae with ... who really loves to do that? Actually, True Mother has to receive my tradition. The True Children follow my tradition. Mother's role is to give the education, but the tradition they must follow is the father's. So there's give and take. Mother must be present, founded upon absolute, unchanging, eternal and unique love. This is the standard we must inherit. Then unity will follow from there. We cannot do without any of those four aspects of true love.
Who will welcome me? Korea? South America? Who will welcome me? Can Korea? Kim Bong Tae! Did you finish the pure love campaign? Do you have problems with unification? What kind of problems? Heavenly Father doesn't need to guide me anymore; for the next few months I know exactly what to do. Do you think I'm a good or bad son? What have you done? [To some of the Koreans.] When you should have been following the path of sacrifice, you escaped it. Did you do all you had to do or did you escape your duties? Every decision is between life and death. Even with no time, I'm fulfilling hoon dok hae in the airplane.
So let's fulfill hoon dok hae before we have lunch. [Father chooses Dr. Yang to read hoon dok hae. After his reading, the meeting concludes at around 3:30 p.m.]
[True Parents enter a few minutes after 10 a.m., check watches, and commence in prayer at 10:10:10. After the prayer, Father speaks while standing in the same position together with True Mother. According to Rev. Kwak's explanation, the basic content is that the nine stages of creation (three divisions of each of the three stages of growth) went under Satan's dominion. Therefore the liberation and unification of heaven and earth over those nine stages had to be declared by True Parents, because man had responsibility for the problem of Satan's false ownership. On that foundation established on 1999.9.9, however, God can declare the same thing on the tenth day, which represents the 10% (tithe) that belongs to God, and of course 10 is the number of perfection and completion. All of the proclamations representing the providential progress come on the foundation of true love. True love is the key point and foundation of everything. September 10 represents "22.214.171.124." "7.8" is the Declaration Day of the Cosmic Sabbath for the Parents of Heaven and Earth, which was declared 1997.7.7 at 7:07:07 when Father was 77, and "9.10" refers to yesterday and today. These events are connected, therefore we have the expression "126.96.36.199"-in Korean: chil-pal-ku-ship.
Father drew on the black board 1 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 9 and then 10 10 10. The nine 9's represent the day before, and the three 10's represent September 10 at 10:10. The nine 9's were claimed by Satan, and God could work only through the slender thread of the number 10. The three 10's represent perfection in the formation, growth and completion stages. The "1" in front of the 9's, from the year 1999, represents another 10 and is added to the three 10's to arrive at forty. The forty represents 4,000 years of history being restored and also the 400 million couples blessing.
Then True Parents went to sit down, and we did a bow from the waist and then Father began his speech. From here I had to leave to get my radio and missed 10 minutes or more.]
Man and the sacrifice must become one. But that was not possible and the sacrifice was divided into Cain and Abel. Those clothes are not yours; your house is not yours; you cannot have the concept of yourself. When Noah was drunk, Ham walked backwards, ashamed. This was introducing the stain of Satan. God wanted to create a new world, but there were the leftovers of Satan remaining. This overturned everything that God tried to create.
Making material sacrifices, physical sacrifices, I had to come this way of sacrifice to accomplish the history of restoration by indemnity. To resolve the past and recover the standard to possess property, I had to shed sweat and tears and add my own jungsung (sincere devotion). You do not understand these things and no one really puts it into practice. You've just made conditions, you just go up a few stages of the eight. No one could go all the way. Therefore this is all the more an amazing, grace-filled and triumphant occasion to be able to make this declaration today.
I must become the elder son of South Korea. I did sightseeing at Kumgang mountain while Kim Il Sung was alive. But the protection by American military force makes them think that America is their enemy. Everything connects to the political world. The presidents of Korea in the past did not receive me. They centered on America - Nixon and Reagan. This was the era of presidential success. From the 70s to the 80s, their families tried to replace me. If Korea had stood up for me, she would have become the flag-bearer for history. But none of the Korean presidents ever called me or invited me, not even once, after becoming president. Until now this holds true, and the 8th president is Kim Dae Jung. His name means "the one great person among all people." The whole world knows that it must be me and no one else who can address the entire world equally, and that I have the key to the unification of North and South Korea. South Korea must become the elder brother. But to unify the north and south, the levels of technology must be equalized. Since the economy in the north is very poor, they are sending out cultural groups, they sell paintings, and centering on the painters they are opening their gates.
I went to my parents' house in North Korea and stood in front of my mother's grave. My sister cried as I said that I, your elder son, have come back, but I have not come back as your son, but as the person to unite North and South Korea. Many people died in a brutal way and I cannot just cry in front of my mother's grave, because there were so many others sacrificed. The responsibility of the elder son is to attend God and call upon all the blessings of the universe. I was never a filial son in my own life. I gave nothing to my own family; I was not able to do that. I always loved the Cain world first. This is the subject of my words. You must understand how True Parents have lived. To make the true position of Father at the blessing, I have made harmony of Japanese and Korean in this place. It is a cosmic incident that can happen only once. I have transformed great fields of sorrow into a harvest of harmony.
There are three people of the three nations before God. This is a total sacrifice and total offering. The place you are sitting does not belong to you. You shouldn't say this is my tie. Korean and Japanese people are enemies. Completed Adam and completed Eve are enemies. Why did you mate with the archangel? If you try to protect yourself first, this is ... if the husband is not happy, it is the wife's responsibility, and vice versa. You are not allowed to demand or claim for yourself. God wants to show happiness to humankind. You are now living in a good era; the whole world can watch our activities. We have e-mail and can watch me on the internet, live. We have camcorders and telephones. This is like the spirit world.
When I look at this, to clear away everything I say to give a donation. Abraham gave up everything. All the organs of the body, you cannot look at them because they are so shameful. We are fallen man. I've brought all of you here. I know there are many members, even here, falling asleep. Unless we move the people's hearts, how many years will it take? For fifty years of history, Japan collapsed Korean culture by means of the secret police. When the war ended, they were left to die in Korea, but I saved them by sending them back to Japan. I did this because I know God's will. If you hit people, this is not God's way.
You must know that I also planned to hold a blessing in Japan but it was not possible. Did I come or not? Japan cannot collapse, because I am taking responsibility. In Korea, all the Christian churches wished that the Unification Church would perish. They prayed for cold weather but on that day I was really hot. You must be ashamed that God has fed you. This must be made into one nation. Through this bond as one nation, I want to bring unity between the American president and the Korean president. The earth will become the mother's nation. I've done this while you knew nothing about it.
Are you the children of God or just workers? You must become the children of God and form a tribe. Some will come first, through absolute faith, love and obedience. I've made this line. Absolute faith centers on parents, absolute love centers on blessed families. Are you my children or what? If I ask to go to Russia, you must go. You can become the owner of the nation, based on such a condition of offering sacrifice. There is a Korean phrase, "all is my life." This means that my wife, my children, all the whole universe is my life. You Koreans live on your own, following your free will. You are centered on yourself. You must look into the eyes of your children and their families and follow God's will. Then you rest in love and you see your wife. If you make love, it's with the man on top of the women. Are you embarrassed? Where is your husband? You should take off your clothes when you make love; if you laugh about this, you cannot be godlike. You seem to feel good.
[Father jokes about farm animals.] Pigs represent three cows ... two pigs and three chickens ... three represents parents: father, mother and God. Do you want to have two male or two female cattle? No; you need one male and one female. God and His sons and daughters are one. If this is possible, then the unification of husband and wife is possible, because it fits the basic rules of the Principle. Centered on this basic rule, we can say amen.
From now should you alleviate my burden or add to it? In this realm of the liberation of the cosmos, what will come? I've shed no blood other than my own during my life course. Since the principle is built this way, my father, mother, tribe and the whole nation, everyone in my family opposed my going to South Korea, but I shrugged them off and left. I went with the commitment that "I will restore the ideal world, and then I'll come back to you." But when I came back, my parents were in the spirit world. My parents died, but I have to love these enemies who will never understand my heart.
When you look at international blessings, they are good from the viewpoint of heaven. Especially Japanese-Korean matches are good. In Japan there is a Korean-Japanese church, and in that church the Koreans are to be the center. Maybe you've held your own children, but you must love your enemy before you can go to your home town. Your real enemy is not me. I had to love my enemies, forgetting my difficulties. I learned to love. I don't want to share these things. You must become one with the saints and sages centered on heaven. This is my hope and this must be remembered. We have to become saints in the family. This is God's amazing power. If you set an oath here today, you must go that path to the end. I have given advice, and it is the way I have gone.
I also speak rapidly in Japanese, faster than the Japanese themselves. I do this since I have the mission to take the Japanese to heaven. I did underground activities in Japan. You cannot love God unless you are a patriot, so I did such activities. Should you participate? What else is there to do? It's not for me; it's for the brothers and sisters throughout the world. If you do not save your brothers and sisters, your parents cannot receive you. If you do not cross the mountain of Cain, you cannot become Abel. First you might have to receive the enemy's children and love them as your dearest ones. It is as if you are blessed to the enemy nation. I blessed Yi Kwon Soon, the patriot who gave her life during the March 1 movement, the Joan of Arc of Korea, with a Japanese man in spirit world. This is the outcome of the principle view. It cannot be denied. You cannot depart from it. All of you ... sacrifice for the liberation of all people, even if you become beggars. If you go beyond life and death, you will become the subject of all people within 100 years. You cannot rebel. You will fall. If you have difficulties, I do not want to listen to them and neither does God. I do not want to hear the words of resentment. I do not want to receive them. Words of resentment are something I never want to hear. I seem slow, but actually I am very smart. The weather is rainy, the wind blows, the flower blossoms ... I am running and running, for God's providence. Even now I am running.
[Once again my computer battery runs out and I am looking for a power source for about 10 minutes. I wanted to sit at the front as much as possible, with the American team, but there was no electrical outlet there.]
[Father is talking about the meaning of offering everything to God.] This is an age of decision and judgment. I could have been an evil man, but became a great man of goodness instead. How should I receive my 80th birthday? How shall I climb over this cliff of 80 years? I'm clearing this up to go the way I should go. Mrs. Eu, does your husband come to you? (Yes) Really? Let's give her applause. (Father asks the same question to a man whose wife is in spirit world. He responds that she came yesterday, but not today. Father says that she should come everyday. Is she with another man?) Do the people who are not here today receive the fortune? Or those who came?
My original heart is hoping that your beloved ones will reach a highest position. Who will celebrate my birthday? Would you turn away your husband as an offering for my birthday? How would you give me a gift? Would you turn away your wife? Would you give everything? Didn't you learn this in Jardim? Everything must be offered. You should understand this through the 40 days workshop hoon dok hae. If you take the blessing and keep it as yours, it's wrong. It's not for free. Everything must be returned to the society. Do you have anything left? Do you have silk clothes? I also want you to give your clothes. If I asked you, would you? Should you? At night, husbands and wives, grandfathers and grandmothers, holding hands, you should take your clothes off and prepare for a trip. If God hears the sounds of your kisses, will He punish you or love you? Husbands and wives must practice taking each others' clothes off.
On your wedding night, you were both trembling when you disrobed each other, but now, you take your clothes off without much feeling. When a husband comes home from a long day's work, his wife should comfort him and say she knows he is tired, and take his clothes off. When the wife takes her husband's clothes off all at once and when he falls on the bed, he would sit up and hug his wife and kiss her. When they have a love relationship, will you do it for three hours or two hours?
Pain is not just having a disease or being ill. I am making great effort to speak. I have talked a lot. I'm a great speaker and great eater. Wherever I go, I become the champion within ten minutes. Do you like me? Japan is my enemy country. But do the Japanese people like me? (Yes.) Then it's okay.
I appointed Reverend Yu as leader thinking of President Hyo Won Eu. When you become 80, then next I will be 90. Do you think I'll live to be 90? I didn't know I would live to be 80, so how can I predict about living to 90? Will I meet you in ten years? I have asked for an offering. If I pass away, you will not able to do these things and you will be ashamed forever in front of spirit world and your descendants. For my 80th birthday you should give an offering. How will I commemorate that day? Do you want to listen to this? If you don't, just stand up and go. If you want to listen, say mansei for the four position foundation, when four generations are saved vertically. If you say mansei with four fingers up, then God will reach down His hands and hold yours and put His thumb up and bless you. You should say amen. Is there any Korean word that means amen?
Repeat after me: If you follow Satan, you should take your eyes out [as Jesus said as well-Matthew 7:25]. Think of those innocent people who had their eyes taken out falsely. One person who fell asleep during my speech had to repent for 3 years. [Father asks Reverend Jeong Og Yu to give a report.]
Rev. Jeong Og Yu: Today, on this historic occasion, I am grateful to be able to stand here and talk to you. Since yesterday we took part in this precious occasion, receiving an unbelievable blessing. In five months we will receive True Parents' 80th birthday. Our transcendent providence centered on the ideal of true love and true family will start, and the Kingdom of Heaven.
Father: My 80th birthday is not important from the human viewpoint, but providentially we cannot receive it without tears. There are matters behind this event such that we cannot receive it without tears. You should know this from a principled point of view, but I have responsibility to fulfill as a son, the elder son who is a filial son.
Rev. Yu: After fulfilling the forty years course Father's next stage was to receive True Mother, create a true family and expand through the eight stages. This is Father's victorious course. We think it a simple fact, this vertical and horizontal eight stages, but this was a history of blood, of True Parents risking their lives. Their lives were really in danger. But doing this providential course, he has accomplished the providence and has bestowed love and blessing to all descendants. At the formal blessings and at occasions such as this day's, I will now be responsible for the mother nation. I would like to ... Yesterday with the 9 nines was a precious day. Nine was Satan's number, but what I felt was that 9 times 9 is 81. Satan's world has been vertically and horizontally taken away from him. True Parents came to Korea and engrafted today's event into Korea. Japan, Korea and America must become one. Korea, Japan and America are here today. So I am very grateful for this blessing.
I've been in Japan for one year and 8 months. I've sought to accomplish the unification of Korea and Japan as one body. But everything has been included as Father has instructed next year. In Japan there are three responsibilities to be completed before February of next year. First is what Father himself would want, the second is to give offerings as the mother nation, and the third is the blessing on Feb 13. In all this we must fulfill Japan's portion of responsibility. My first wish is of course that the whole nation be restored, but on October 2, Japan receives the 40th anniversary of the Unification Church of Japan, and Japan must complete the restoration history centering on the number 40. During this course, True Parents' main overall wish is to restore Japan.
There are 180 Korean church leaders in Japan, and Father has guided the Korean-Japanese blessed couples together and said that they all should go to Japan. They do not absolutely need church leaders in Korea, but in Japan they do not have Father's tradition. So President Hwang agreed to send the 180 church leaders to Japan. In Korea, even if the churches have no leaders, Father's tradition will remain. How can I engraft Father's will and spirit into the Japanese church? I can feel Father's love for Japan. The nature of the Japanese people is that if they are in a group they have power, but they do not as individuals.
The Korean church leaders were appointed to positions in Japan. 360 churches must be created in Japan, then we will multiply this number by ten, and so now we are creating 3,600 districts. I appointed 3,600 church leaders. This is not a simple appointment; this is True Father's wish. Centering on the 3,600 districts, this movement is to save Japan. So this appointment is from God and True Parents, and it must be received appropriately.
Now Japan has 3,600 districts, centering on ten people each, and the regions are equalized. Until True Father confirmed that these were equalized, we had carried on this work for a few months. That means the equalization of the regions has not been successful, so we have organized the regions centered on teams of ten people. So they all have the same responsibility.
So how can 10 people make a church? Do they need to build an expensive church building? That is not the point. In the Old Testament Age ... now we're in the Completed Testament Age and all the indemnity and restoration has been cleared away. We do not need a church building but 3,600 regions can be the most core thing. Attending Father's words is the defining point, not the building. The world must follow this tradition, including all families. In Japan, each family is attending this book of Father's words. It symbolizes the church. It is being published by the sincere devotion of the Japanese people. 10 people attend one book of Father's speeches. We can prepare a fund centering on this book. Japan could pay part of its debts. The church is a family church, not a building. Ten people attend the book of father's speeches and this is the church.
Until now, the church in Japan has been persecuted, but now we feel that Father's words witness to people. Father said to me, "I've given you God's words, but you do not go out to witness, so from now on my word itself will witness to people. Since you are not proud of True Parents, my words will go out to the world and announce True Parents. The words will be proud of True Parents." If one-third of the people who are witnessed to become connected to a church, I would call this a success. People take ten books to 100 houses when they witness, and they take the names and phone numbers and leave a message on the book. The message is that the book is a message from heaven, not from the person himself or herself. This book can solve all the problems in your family and between spouses. At the bottom the individual member writes that they will come back to pick up the book after three days.
Japanese people like to read, so they usually read it when we lend it. If they read it, when we come back we make conversation about the content. They may be politicians, our opponents, or wealthy people, or ex-members, but we visit them all. The Korean church leaders are visiting ex-members. One visited five times. The first four times, he was rejected, but the fifth time he was invited in. The ex-member revealed his resentments and the church leader felt sorry for him. The church leader said, let's pray, and the ex-member could not reject it. Through the prayer his resentment was solved and he determined to come to church again. Many people have been restored in this way.
We started the movement to witness with these books. I asked church leaders from now on, if any books are left around the center undistributed, I will question your ability as a leader [i.e. they all should all be "in circulation"]. If you read the book, you will be inspired, and if you give it, you will receive spiritual testimonies. There are many testimonies over the years about spiritual experiences connected to our movement, so these members should be able to testify about these spiritual experiences to new spiritual children. A new history will unfold, centering on this book.
In the Gospel of John chapter 1 it says that in the beginning was the word, and the word was with God and the world was created through the word. When True Father's words are distributed, the last days will come. The Japanese members are confident with this method. We will try and do our best with this strategy to prepare for the blessing next year. Among the book recipients there are many who are spiritually prepared by dreams and in other ways, who are able to make sincere commitments when they discover the Messiah. We will reach our goal through the distribution of the book of Father's speeches.
Father told me not to worry about Japan, but that through the hoon dok hae tradition and this style of church, everything will work out. This is a new gate to the blessing. The offerings are made with tears. I was very grateful for the determination of the members to fulfill the responsibility. When children are not old enough to support the father, the wife must attend her husband. From last year, each family makes a special offering at each meal, three times a day, attending the father and elder son, even a small amount.
What shall we present for the 80th birthday as children? I have heard the explanation of the profound meaning of today's event. We only follow True Parents, and they have gone the way of indemnity. Who was it for? For us, for their family. Our True Parents are the only ones in history. To restore the history of sin, how difficult it was to clear away the course of indemnity! Of course, you members here are giving donations to support Father's global mission. All Japanese members are participating in this. It is a gift to True Parents on his 80th birthday that will come only once in history. I've asked that we contact all people who have ever been in the church, to give them a chance. It comes only once in history.
I went to a city and met a lady of 79. She is one of the earliest church members; the local members call her "mother." She came to the apartment of the church leader, and just before their appointment she was asked to give her testimony. Her story brought tears to everyone. We are reaching out to all those who related to the church. Until now we have laid so much burden on True Parents and we would like to send a gift on the 80th birthday. Some ex-members said, "Oh is Father eighty years old! How he has aged!" This 79 year-old remembers Father as a young man, and she made such a sincere offering. The ex-members are so grateful to be able to give. The conclusion is that although ex-members have resentments against the church, they all love Father. They have no resentment to Father, but had difficulties with other church members. On the occasion of the 80th birthday, their lives can be revived and a path to come back to True Parents can be opened again.
During this providence, I told the Japanese members, is it because True Parents want something for themselves? No; it is nothing material. For God's providence, True Parents need the means to carry out their responsibility. Therefore we are presenting it. To get from Korea to South America is a thirty hour flight. It is for the providence and to serve humankind. And we as children have the desire to comfort our parents. Traveling is very hard work for True Father, who is now eighty. To all those who contribute, I'd like to give some kind of token of appreciation.
All the Japanese members are taking on this responsibility. From now, you must unite with True Parents' heart. Regarding the 52 leaders from Japan and from America, Father said that the purpose is to convey and allow the elder son to inherit the fruit of the 40 year course of the mother nation. Japan as a whole has fulfilled absolute faith, love and obedience conditionally. That should transfer to America. The offerings we are making sets the condition of inheritance. Centering on the offering, we can be forgiven of all the mistakes of the past. The father, mother and son should make the offering in unity with jungsung. We must share everything we've been practicing as the mother nation to the leaders who have come representing the elder son.
In Fukuoka, there are three American leaders. Before I gave them the letter of appointment, I asked them to speak. Each said something different. One spoke in tears about how hard he'd been working to establish the standard of the mother nation. As a representative of the elder son nation, I came to attend you and inherit from you. Many words were not needed. All the Japanese members present revived, and the two nations were tied together as one during that moment. We can see that God's providence is really incredible.
Now we have to go straight back to Japan and carry on our efforts. While I'm here I'm also giving directions to Japan. My body is in Korea but my heart is in Japan. I'm always thinking about fulfilling my mission and Japan's mission. True Father told me not to worry about my health; that worry will not help me in any way. Korea, Japan and America are uniting that which was torn apart in the Garden of Eden. On this occasion, the three can unite and start one family. I am grateful and honored to be able to stand here today. Thank you.
President Sun Jo Hwang: I will report on the activities of the Korean church. First, the 400 million couples blessing. Second, our providential task for tong ban kyok pah and other educational projects.
All the church leaders opened a meeting and started the 400 million campaign with three days fasting. In July and August we started 40-day conditions. Each member is to witness to at least four people. The goal is 5,000 single blessing candidates. All families were to place the goal by the mirror. The result so far is that six churches have fulfilled 30%, and 51 churches have fulfilled 100%. More than 200 people have fulfilled the entire goal. Employees in all church organizations are to witness to four people if at all possible.
In our course of faith there are many times we do not take responsibility for our faith. If we cannot fulfill our responsibility, let's do three days fasting. Among the church organization employees, many of them have fulfilled the responsibility to witness to four members. One blessed employee, in the witnessing department, was brought to the church by her mother and joined with no understanding of Principle when she came to work in the office. All she knew was True Parents. She has also fulfilled four people. We have 3,832 matching applications. 452 are pre-matched between Korea and the Philippines. This pre-matching will continue between Korea and the Philippines. Then True Parents have to approve them.
We advertised in newspapers, but now the results are coming through the tong ban kyok pah activities. The true family movement is now recognized in the society. One man, a graduate from a prestigious university in Seoul, with a position at a good company, visited our church. I asked him how he came to our church, and he replied that his friends all know that the best way to gain a solid marriage is to marry through the true family movement.
One sister's house is in Inchon. When she goes to the train, she distributes witnessing cards about finding a good marriage. I also have to witness to four people, but if I'm not able to, I told my wife it's her responsibility. So if I'm not able to succeed, she will. [Rev. Hwang, who is now the World Mission Department director, read the continental goals for the campaign and the results by continent. He then described the tong ban kyok pah strategy. Korea is organized by tong ban, each of which has a government-related local neighborhood leader. The Korean church tries to influence on that level. He then described building a nationwide hoon dok hae organization. We will persevere until we break through with this. Then he reported about the plan for a "Hoon Dok College." It is getting established at our International Convention Center, and is operating like a night school or part-time school such as those in the states that offer specialized courses in business management, pottery making, language, dance, computer skills and so forth. Finally, our church is trying to set roots among the common people. We are using the media and making monthly or bi-monthly broadcasts by way of a publicity campaign so that people will take note on the grassroots level. We have to reach the people on the street directly. We once were active on the street and at train stations. Last year True Parents bought the mobile jumbo-tron that you saw outside the building. [It is a truck and opening a large door on side reveals a video screen perhaps 10 feet wide and 8 feet high.] We set up a karaoke machine with it and 300 people lined up to sing and this was also advertising our church. The true family movement promotes volunteerism in the service of true family values nationwide. Father is pleased with these jumbo-trons for advertising the movement.
[Father spoke a few words here on multi-media witnessing and education, and the usefulness of the jumbo-trons.]
Pres. Hwang: We now have 20 jumbo-tron trucks around the country. We show videos that we've produced. We're trying to create a video business including Completed Testament Age News every month. Our media team is getting good, and we even produced a video for Samsung. How are we going to educate a million people? We have a plan based on hoon dok hae with the church leaders, organizing cells of around 20 people. By the end of October we want to reach more than one million. One regional church leader from South Cholla has been invited to lecture officially. Already, 420,000 have been educated according to this plan. The focus of the education is first the singles and second the grassroots.
We are educating the National Messiahs and others in the "world mission countries." One problem is a lack of material in these countries. Everyone is set up with faxes and most have computers. There are many Korean National Messiahs overseas who have no money or house in Korea. So I want to prepare a dormitory for visiting Korean National Messiahs and an office for their communications work.
The Completed Testament News is on a web site. Soon you can subscribe and receive it via email. There are many thousands of members worldwide on the internet. It will include speeches, reports and photos. Also we are preparing the Sonyak (Completed Testament) magazine, a video magazine that will also come out in English. In fact, English may be the main language, with sub-titles in Korean. I'd like to make this project pay for itself. You cannot believe how hard the Korean HQ staff are working, 7 am to 11 pm and even sleeping in the office overnight.
In the world there are nations inside and outside the Christian cultural sphere. Because of the differences worldwide, I've produced a 300 page missionary handbook on how to organize one's missionary work. It even includes how to do a seung hwa ceremony.
Many new publications are in the works, especially to present Father's life for his 80th birthday, and editions of Father's speeches.
[Rev. Hwang outlines the significance of Father's declarations over the past few years. No translation is provided-our interpreter was exhausted. The final report, by Rev. Bong Tae Kim about Korean CARP, the activities between students of North and South Korea, and the Pure Love Alliance, was not translated.]
Father: Let's make the conclusion. So far, Japan went it alone, but now you have to learn from Korea and America. I ask the Japanese sisters here, what is the best way to go from here? Korea sounds like "dungeon" in Japanese. But it is a gateway. Japan is the kitchen that prepares food for the king. The king is always curious about what the wife is preparing for him. From the womb, the mother and child become one, then the father stands on the extended line of life from there. The father and mother become one, and they multiply to constitute a family.
From the cosmic point of view, the Chinese character for heaven means "two people." The vertical creator and horizontal family become one. When it becomes one, it extends into the children, the family and three stages. The center of it is the hidden God, and the family is where the hidden God can settle down. This point of settlement is the zero point. The horizontal and vertical lines must go through this zero point. This zero symbolizes God. The one point where God dwells is zero. So, all things must go through this zero point. Left, right, front and back, the number 12 leads to 36. It is the vertical and horizontal settling point. It cannot make a mistake at that point.
The number nine is the husband-wife relationship, and the middle of it is the settling point of God's love. This is the realm of the unification of husband and wife, God and man. The relation of father-son and husband-wife cannot be changed because in both cases they are one body. This can be extended everywhere in the world. It is united into one realm. The settling point is the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth and in Heaven. This is eternal life. God exists eternally, so that was God's original ideal of creation. But uniting this world, that is so tangled up, is one thing even God cannot do. This is the responsibility of human beings. Man fell in the realm that God controls indirectly. To make the point at which God can directly control man is an incredible undertaking.
I declare that this day sets up this realm of liberation. The mother must give away her life for the father, and the father will support his wife and children. If it's pushed from the other side, the center will go around. So the family must be ... so the responsibility of the mother is terrifying. How old are you? (I'm 74.) Did you come here because you love me? I've been giving you this direction. You have missions relating to Korea and America, as wife to Korea and mother to America. So these Americans must forget their own customs and traditions. You must forget your own traditions and customs related to the fallen nature. It is not easy to forget fallen customs and traditions. You must separate and sanctify your shortcomings.
Woman should take care of things when something bad happens to the husband or children. The mother responds first. In the position of mother, as you think about involvement, you cannot reject doing what is difficult. The Pantanal is the opposite side of the world from Korea. There is the focal point, the starting base for the Garden of Eden. The historic father first builds the space of love. The mother must make the commitment of love. Do you remember the first time you had love relations with your husband? That was the turning point, your original holy ground. There is a holy ground in the Pantanal [the Holy Ground of Focus, Origin and Victory, established on July 27, 1999]. Does the father circle around the mother, or vice versa? The people who protect and cherish the Pantanal holy ground are the Japanese sisters. Do you want to go there or not? Is there anything more important? If so, what do you think that would be? To become a great person, you must get to the focal point.
If a passionate mother appears ... The mother wants a husband, children, food, clothes and a house. She is concerned for these things. So you're not even free to thoughtlessly drink water; you must check to see that the father and children are drinking water. You will always have to be worried and constantly taking care of others. This is serious. Going back to Japan you must all start anew and become new people. Are you determined to become a new person?
If you receive love, you can overcome these things. Your husband is the embodiment of God, the symbol of God. He is the center of the family and the embodiment of God. The vertical and horizontal meet at 90 degrees. You must attain this standard, with mind and body united. How far should we go? Before holding your closest loved ones, hold your enemies in your arms. This is the basic rule. You are the wife of God and descendants of God. Since the fall occurred, humankind lost the closest loved ones because they have been taken by Satan. The communists did everything to fulfill their task. Women are not honest. If they are, would they act like they do? Their mind and body are not united. Honesty always shows the heart. Since the physical body is connected to the fallen lineage, you should separate totally from the physical tradition that comes from Satan. One reason I scold you is to express love and blow off indemnity straight away. If you listen to my scolding it sets a great indemnity condition. So you all are candidates to be a good wife and great mother. So go back to Japan beautifully.
Korean people, did you understand what I said to the Japanese? [Father was speaking this last segment in Japanese.] You must admit that you have to learn the other language. If you speak Korean, you can speak Japanese as well as they. The sons speak English and the mother Japanese, so they cannot communicate. We have three languages, so in a unified village there will be much miscommunication. You can't have different parts of one body speaking different languages. The inside and outside must unite into one.
Today is sam ship chul. Jesus died because he could not receive this day. When he became 30 he went to his mother. Poor Jesus. He did not have a true wife or mother. His mother was not determined to sacrifice herself for her son. So he did not create the realm of the object necessary to fulfill his mission. Why did he have to go to Gethsemane? Because he lost his relatives and mother and he had to pour out his life. He had to shed tears. I've been in that situation for the sake of this day. How much I have sacrificed to settle this day! I am going beyond the line of death to declare this day. I've even forgiven Satan in the Garden of Eden and created the situation in which no one fell in the Garden of Eden. Everything becomes one. Do not live licentiously, but live a principled life. Before controlling the universe you have to control yourself. Otherwise there is no way to engraft into God's lineage.
If you cannot control your body, you will fall by the power of Satan's seduction. If you separate from your wife and return after seven years, if you hold her and make love and reach the climax, the sexes will connect. When I was in Japan, women came into my bed without their clothes on. They said they would die if I did not embrace them and they asked me to do whatever I wanted with them. You must be able to reject this situation just as I did. It's spiritual. They must have thought that I was spastic. You must be able to endure this temptation, or you cannot represent God.
So I have come through this individual course, family course and tribal course and have set up this tradition of love through suffering. There are many pretty women in Japan. I could have done whatever I wanted, but they are my sisters and daughters of God. So I as a restored Adam must make them a good sister, good wife, good mother, good grandmother and good queen. How can I stand up and look at them as my own woman?
Where's your husband? Is he dead? You didn't come here together? Did you ever make love? From today I said you must pass the test of principle. You must go through the seven-year course as a family and become filial children on the family level, centering on the family, so the family itself can become the center. The family itself finally becomes the victor. So I've followed this until now, until I enter the Kingdom of Heaven and restore God's palace. Then on behalf of God, I'll be able to inherit everything even if Heavenly Father is not able to.
Absolute faith, love and obedience - are these just words, or have you put them into practice? If you go to the north pole, can you sit there a few days? If I sit there one night, will I freeze or not? If I sleep, I will freeze; if I don't sleep, I won't freeze. In South America, it was so hot that I had to take all my clothes off. But I have to make it a hobby. One can watch one's sweat fall from the face down your body. I watched this and it was interesting. Try it at night; you can sweat at night. People say they cannot stand here because it is so hot, but it can be enjoyable if you approach it this way.
Pray to be able to receive this day, 9.9, on the foundation of absolute faith, love and obedience. Absolute faith, love and obedience are the foundation of my life; there is nothing else. From today, become a new person. In the original ideal, God's love will come to you and your spouse. Always God will be with you and enfold you. It is possible that this world can exist, although it is impossible in the fallen realm. So I thank God for this day, and I say, let us be grateful. I have no complaints. If I perish, or am hit, or stepped on, I am grateful. I am grateful because of love. Take even the old people to the realm of gold and let them be proud of all the children.
[Father calls one elder member - Rev. Su Won Chung's wife - to sing the old song of gratitude. It is a song that was received by the Inside Belly Church, if I am not mistaken. Rev. Chung's mother was a member of that church before meeting True Father.] The lyrics are: I am grateful that he has given me the freedom of life. [Her memory lapses, and Father continues with the lyrics:] You're grateful if you die, and more so if you live. If you are hungry, you're grateful. If you have dinner then you are even more grateful, and even the taste of water is so precious. I know this because I was in prison. I know the true taste of rice with nothing on it; how tasty it is.
Shall we sing Tongil or pray? Who should pray? Me? I don't like praying. I spent twenty years without praying. I know all the spirit world, so what would I ask them to teach me? I didn't pray, but I dominated the satanic world. I'm fiercer than anyone with a Ph.D. You cannot follow Father. You must know that Father came to the earth to save the world. I've overcome all these and have reached the realm of liberation. Let us pray. Shall we sing and pray and mansei? Or just sing without prayer?
[Rev. Hwang prays:] ... this incredible blessing of love, fulfilling the course of history. You've given us true love, and have guided us through living for the sake of others. True Parents prepared this through unexpressed sorrow and hardship. Without True Parents, the resentment within Heavenly Father could not have been unfolded. Resentment fighting communism even at the risk of his life, and he has loved his spiritual children and lost his physical children, Hee Jin Nim and Hae Jin Nim. Through today and yesterday, True Father has declared the day that will remain. I'm really grateful for this original faith, love and obedience.
We are in the satanic world but we are the channel of God eternally. In front of this responsibility of the 400 million couples blessing, and before history and our descendants, we will not be ashamed. In the name of the parents of heaven and earth, I pray that this liberation will stand before history, representing all the world and all people, with the father nation of Korea, the mother nation of Japan and the elder son nation of America. We are grateful you have declared this day. We pray in the name of True Parents. Amen.
[We then sang Tongil, during which time Father was very serious and thoughtful. Then Reverend Kwak led three cheers of mansei and True Father departed. It was about 4:00 p.m.]
