May the blessings of God and True Parents and new heavenly fortune be with all of you leaders working hard day and night for the sake of the victory of 400 Million Couples Blessing.
True Parents conducted the "Liberation Ceremony for Cosmic Unification for the Parents of Heaven and Earth" for two days, September 9 and 10, in a sacred and solemn atmosphere. Two thousand one hundred couples from Korea, 400 from Japan and 12 from the United States attended the declaration ceremony on this day. FFWPU International President Rev. Sun Jo Hwang was the MC. True Father named the September 9 commemoration day Gu Gu Jeol (9.9 Jeol - Nine Nines Declaration) and September 10 as Sam Sip Jeol (3.10 Jeol - Three Tens Declaration).
True Parents gave their benediction at 9 minutes and 9 seconds past 9 o'clock in the morning of September 9, 1999 (True Father's age being 79, the number 9 appears 9 times). Through his serious prayer of declaration, True Father restored the number 9 centering on the names of True Parents and Parents of Heaven and Earth. By applying the rooting out of Satanic history to the heavenly and earthly worlds, Father thanked God for being able to hold the ultimate, crucial supremacy of victory in order to receive the realm of free liberation with which the Kingdom of Heaven can be built in all of heaven and earth. True Father offered a sincere prayer declaring the liberation era of the age of heavenly fortune and God's ideal Kingdom of God on earth and in heaven, in which only good remains and only good can act in the names of True Parents.
The 9.9 Jeol, which True Parents declared, has the meaning of creating a connecting point between the Declaration Day of the Realm of Cosmic Sabbath for Parents of Heaven and Earth (7.8 Jeol) and the Proclamation of the Celebration of Cosmic Victory. Moreover, by passing beyond the number 9, which was possessed by Satan, through establishing a border line which Satan can not go beyond, Hell on earth and in the spirit world can be removed and we will enter the era of liberation of the ideal age of the Kingdom of God on earth and in heaven. In particular, True Parents emphasized several times to all participants that "True Parents are absolutely mine." They spoke of the realm of unity, in that everything that belongs to us also belongs to True Parents, and strongly made the point that the realm of living together, sharing joy and our inheritance will be realized when we love with absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal love, with absolute True Love.
On receiving this day True Parents
True Parents also gave directions to each nation to hold Hoon Dok Hae on the national level centering on the National Messiahs. At the same time, True Father gave directions that all blessed families who attended the historic commemoration ceremony in Seoul should offer a special donation which would totally indemnify all debts before God, representing all the blessed families of the world. True Father said this was the minimum condition to liberate ourselves.
True Father proclaimed 3.10 Jeol in the name of Jehovah at 10 minutes past 10:00 A.M. on September 10, 1999. The meaning of 3.10 Jeol is that, on the foundation of Father's declaration on the Declaration Day of the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath for Parents of Heaven and Earth and 9.9 Jeol, all numbers from 1-10 have been restored as heaven's numbers. True Father said that since all numbers from 1-10 have been restored to God's side, God is now able to freely, and from a spontaneous position, superintend the original world of creation by numbers.
True Father chanted the numbers 1-12 and had all the participating members repeat after him. Father then celebrated this day's victory with joy by leading three cheers of Mansei, saying that all the churches in Korea should hold a banquet. True Father in particular emphasized the fulfillment of absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience which were not accomplished in the Garden of Eden. He explained that all things symbolize the Old Testament Age, sons symbolize the New Testament Age and husband and wife symbolize the Completed Testament Age. He spoke about the total living offering, which has the meaning of offering everything in a state in which nothing is divided and at the standard that all possessions belongs to God representing these three ages. Moreover, until now there has been an indemnity period after the blessing, but Father said that from today, members can start their family life immediately after receiving the blessing. This indicates that all indemnity conditions before and after the blessing no longer exist, and that owing to the expansion of God's sovereignty Satan can no longer make accusations.
Dear International Leaders!
We are now living in an extraordinary age in which we can inherit all the contents of the victory True Parents have accomplished by sharing suffering and joy with True Parents within a great providential event that has never previously happened. Now the event of True Father's 80th birthday and the 400 Million Couples Blessing, in which all the providential contents True Parents have accomplished will bear their complete fruit, and which must generally clear up all of human history, is now only five months away.
Now we must make more strenuous efforts with a heart to offer ourselves as a total living offering. I pray from the bottom of my heart that this will be a precious time in which we will be able to offer the 400 Million Couples Blessing before heaven without fail.
