True Father has been preparing for this World Culture Sports Festival and blessing his whole life. Interreligious International Federation for World Peace was founded for teaching God's words universally. The existing governments cannot solve the global problems by themselves.
The new tradition of International Hoon Dok Seminar started. 200 to 300 religious and political leaders attended. We can now realize peace of human beings and reconciliation between religions.
The mission of the UN to realize peace has changed as time went by. There was an ideological antagonism between theism and atheism and the threat of nuclear war had to be addressed. Then, globalization time came, and the informational revolution occurred. There was much opposition to circumstances such as poverty and women's liberation.
Finally there is the clash between cultures. This clash is far more violent than that of politics. In this way the mission of the UN has changed.
TM gave a speech in the UN in 1996, and a full-scale leadership started at Assembly 2000 in August 2000. At that time TP gave a keynote address. Mr. Heath, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, the former Presidents of Costa Rica, Africa, and so on attended the meeting. TP received the World Peace Prize. TP advocated 4 issues;
After that the UN assembly was held in October. The UN is slow to work, and needs complicated preparation before acting. When we held WANGO meeting, many NGOs attended.
We have already completed the education of leaders of more than 190 nations. We can contribute to the creation of peace and new culture by the method which the UN cannot do. The guests of the UN blessing consisted of Prime Ministers and Presidents, the leaders of Mongolia and the Marshall Islands, etc. People from 191 nations gathered and did Hoon Dok Hae.
The President of Kenya paid his respects to True Father. The leaders of Nigeria and Estonia attended. Many incumbent presidents attended the meeting being accompanied by their followers, and signed the blessing application. There were 650 attendees this time. This meeting was named "World Peace Blessing," not the usual meeting. The theme was "Dialogue and Harmony of Cultures." It is difficult to make harmony between cultures, so dialogue is necessary. It is possible only for True Parents to attain this. The blessing ceremony was also held as the practice of dialogue and harmony of cultures.
Ethnic costumes are the symbol of the cultures. 210 couples attended the UN blessing. We emphasized that man and woman build the ideal family paying attention not to be criticized by the secular world. Congratulatory speech was changed to the keynote address of the incumbent president to make the blessing an event of World Peace. True Parents were proud of the coronation ceremony of God's Kingship in front of many Prime Ministers. We also have to be proud of it wherever we go. Who liberates God? Who is full of pain? 4 Saints attended the ceremony in the spiritual world, and in the physical world 4 representatives bowed to God and True Parents unconditionally.
The UN blessing was held on 1/27, that is the 14th day after the coronation ceremony of God's Kingship on 1/13. 12 religious representatives attended the UN blessing. Religion represents past, political leaders represents present, and 210 couples represent future. The representatives of past, present and future gathered in one place. The representatives of 191 nations would attend the UN blessing, but due to visa problems they came from 136 nations. The representatives of Islam, Christianity and Buddhism gave a speech. In their speech they expressed how much Rev. Moon surprised them. The age of the realm of 4th Adam opened. We have to understand it with the viewpoint of Hyungsang and Sungsang.
We can unite into one in the UN transcending each nation. There is no condition Satan accuses. The spiritual world was liberated. We should have the concept of Korean, Japanese or American.
We have to liberate True Parents. Each family has a responsibility to liberate True Parents. Then, spiritual happening of absolute authority will occur. For this we have to be busy. We are National messiahs and Tribal messiahs, but it is a problem that God cannot visit us due to our incompetence.
Every blessed couple has to register and inherit the victory of True Parents. When we repent and shed tears, God and True Parents do not come to us. More than that, we have to report our life, which we can be proud of, to God and True Parents, and ask them to come. Originally, God's words were not to punish people who committed sin. How can we adapt ourselves to the age of kingship? We have to change, renew our lives.
True Father said, "From now on is the age of the 2nd generation," as he announced at the leaders' meeting on 1/31. From now on in the spiritual world Heung Jin Nim is the center, and in the physical world Hyun Jin Nim is the center. Hyun Jin Nim leads the members who are under 40 years old.
Now, it is the age of the 2nd generation, 'I' have to serve Hyung Jin Nim instead of True Father as a representative of the Cain world. We have to practice the heavenly law in human relationships. The age of the realm of the 4th Adam is the age of God's kingship. The young members stand in front, and fulfill the mission actively. By the way what do the members over 40 do? The 2nd generation stands on the foundation of the 1st generation. There is continuity.
True Father said, "If you want to meet me, bring the results of your love." Now we transcended the realm of religions, and we 'report' instead of 'pray.' Many spiritual happenings will occur. Have your results to report.
When you live following the principle, you can save the people. Don't talk about others, and don't compare yourself to others. Don't say "Yes!" and pledge and show hands unless you absolutely agree. The person who just keeps up appearances is not in The Heavenly Kingdom. 90-degree settlement, True Love, Absolute faith, Absolute love and Absolute obedience are important. From the passive viewpoint, you should never stain your pure blood lineage, never violate people's rights, and never misuse public money. And from the positive viewpoint, you should restore Eve, restore the Cain children, and restore the Archangel.
We are in debt to them.
Don't worry. Have confidence. Deny yourself. When it is difficult, you should think I am not "I" but "True Parents."
We are looking forward to receiving your testimonies or exciting news. Please send them to the Kodan Office.
2/3 TF left the USA for South America. TM stays in New York due to her physical condition. 2/4 in the morning, TF arrived at Brazil. He gave a speech at New Hope East Garden in Jardim. After that he left for Nabireki in Pantanal. TF is making a condition for the speaking tour of 50 states in America through fishing at Nabireki in Pantanal under difficult circumstances.
Nabireki is located; From Jardim 5-hour trip by bus to Port-Mulchinyo, from Port-Mulchinyo 12-hour trip on the Paraguay river by ship to Nabireki.
The sunlight is so strong that the skin sunburns seriously even in half a day. It exhausts one's physical strength. TF called the missionaries of 33 cities around Jardim and the participants of the Jardim workshop and gave a speech on 2/5, 2/6. "Prayer is important for witnessing. You have to make a condition. You have to pray until a floor becomes wet with your tears. And the unity of mind and body is the most important." After the speech, TF deliberately came out of the house to a riverbank to see our members off when they left Nabireki by ship.
