Change of Blood Lineage;
The Real Experience of Salvation by the Messiah
October 13, 1970
hat is the
ultimate purpose of God's providence? It is the completion of salvation,
which means complete perfection. No one seeks incompleteness in anything.
Human beings have fallen and have inherited a satanic blood lineage.
Who is Satan? Satan is the enemy of God's love. Originally, God created
Adam with the goal of making him the perfect substantial manifestation of
God. Adam was to be God's substantial body. No one but God the Creator can
have complete dominion over all things. That is because in order to have
complete dominion it is necessary to have complete knowledge. Only God
knows all things completely; therefore, complete dominion is possible only
by God. Adam himself is a created being, and it is impossible for a created
being to have complete dominion over the creation. Therefore, God made Adam
in His image so that He might live directly in him. In other words, God
intended to make Adam stand in the position of God's resonator and wanted
to control the universe directly through him.
The creation of Adam
God work through the form of Adam? God created all things with forms, but the
invisible God does not have any form. In terms of largeness, God is infinitely
large, and in terms of smallness, God is infinitely small. Material things,
no matter what kind of form they may have, cannot receive direct dominion from
God. Therefore, in the created world of material things, God created man, who
has personality or spirit, to be the master. God must have dominion not only
over all earthly things, but also over the infinite spiritual world. Archangels
and all other spiritual beings are invisible substantial beings. A certain
central form is also necessary in order to have dominion over the invisible
substantial world. Then where was that form available? It was only through
Adam that God could have such a form. Accordingly, through Adam's form,
God planned to have dominion over both the spiritual world and the physical
world, with Adam as the center. That was the purpose of creation. Therefore,
God had to have a substantial relationship with the substantial being, Adam,
in order to have dominion over all things.
Adam's perfection would represent the perfection of God's Hyung Sang
[visible, external form]. The body of Adam and his personality or spirit
were the same type as that of God, who is the center of the incorporeal
realm. Without a form, God could not have dominion over the world of form. With
that idea, God created Adam.
God's second goal was to achieve perfect unity between Himself
and Adam. What bonds them? Man is the horizontal representative of God
the vertical being. The central point of their connection, which is called
love, is the string which connects people to eternity. Human beings who have
physical bodies are supposed to unite with God through love, and when they
do, they have united with infinite love, enjoying the greatest happiness. The
ideal world or the world of goodness is based upon that realm of happiness.
There you observe the world feeling total unity with God.
Mankind is longing for the original ideal of creation, a world of
harmony. This desire is centered on love. Therefore, in order to fulfill it,
you must live in an environment of love. You must feel and experience love
throughout your life. It is God's purpose for man to become united with God
through love. It is through love that God and man can become united. That
is God's purpose of creation.
Resurrection of love
men and women to have the feeling of love for each other. He wanted them
to perfectly fulfill the purpose of creation and to experience love in a
free and natural way. That is the reason why He wanted to unite with man
centering upon love. However, man took the opposite course through the fall,
and the central point for connection was taken by the archangel. As a result,
the whole universe became a mass of confusion. The central point, love,
which should have been connected to God, was actually bound to Satan. The
motivation for connection became opposite to God's motivation. Therefore, in
man, the standard of the conscience and the standard of the flesh are opposed
to each other. People have related to each other centered upon Satan's love,
not God's love.
For that reason, mankind has been suffering through 6,000 biblical years up
till now in order to be liberated from the bondage of Satan's love. God has
been prevented from entering the inner mind of people directly to recover
the necessary central point, so He has had to adopt an indirect method
to penetrate their conscience. In history, therefore, God sent prophets,
saints, and sages, hoping that through them fallen man would receive His
love and truth. That has been the history of restoration up until now. God's
providence has centered on the recovery of love. Its goal is to restore
people whose conscience is indwelt by God. It aims at unity through God's love.
God created the sphere of the chosen nation of Israel and through 4,000
years of biblical history, He guided the chosen people. He then taught them
to expect the Messiah, centering upon their faith, Judaism, which was in the
position of Abel to the nation of Israel. Together the nation and Judaism
were to erect the foundation of faith and the foundation of substance. If
unity had been made on the national level, based upon the foundation of
faith and the foundation of substance, then the foundation for the Messiah
would have been completed naturally. God suffered greatly for 4,000 years,
hoping that the foundation would be laid. The chosen people of Israel, too,
were seeking the national foundation.
Yet, from the principled point of view, God had to send Jesus to the
earth when the time was right, even if the foundation was not completed.
If Judaism and Israel had become one, Jesus could have taken the position of
True Parents because he would have stood upon the substantial foundation for
the Messiah. Since he could not take the position of True Parents, he could
not accomplish the change of blood lineage centering upon new love. That is
the principled explanation.
The necessity for the Messiah
hen why do we
need the Messiah? What is his purpose? He comes for the purpose of salvation.
In order to be saved, man must go back to the point which connects us to God's
love. How are we to accomplish that? People have inherited satanic blood
and have become substantial beings who have nothing to do with God's blood
lineage. We are completely opposite from the realm of God's love, and this
must be indemnified. Man's original sin must be removed; the blood lineage
from Satan must be changed. But fallen people cannot do it by themselves;
therefore, the Messiah is necessary.
Who has to do the work of eliminating the satanic blood lineage deep within
man, which was inherited through generation after generation? If there is
anybody who can do that, it is the True Parents. True Parents must become
one with the love of God, establish a good reciprocal standard with Him,
and love the world as if it is theirs. Otherwise it is absolutely impossible
to remove fallen nature and original sin. Therefore, parents of evil and
parents of goodness have to struggle and compete with each other for love,
but the love of the True Parents will endure. Satanic love will be removed
from man; the blood lineage will be changed.
The way of Jesus
to establish that standard in his lifetime. In order to do this he proclaimed
at the start his of three year public ministry:
'He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he
who loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me; and he who does
not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me.'
Matt 10:37-38 )
The Messiah may be able to remove the satanic blood, but you must obey
and follow him so that he can do that.
Everybody has to carry his own cross. If you cannot fulfill that standard,
you cannot be saved. You must be willing to face death itself. By establishing
that absolute standard, your evil blood lineage can be cleansed. In order
to have it cleansed, we must work and take action, not just talk about it or
have feelings about it. We must do strong things, such as fasting and prayer,
thus going through the boundary of life and death.
The first battle for Jesus was to go over this boundary, cherishing God's
love more than his own physical life, and establishing the condition in
which he could not be accused. He had to endure terrible persecution within
Joseph's family and fast and pray for 40 days. Even though he still had life
and feeling within him, the incredible course he went through led him to the
brink of death. Always he had to maintain unity with God's love in the midst
of that life and death battle. With total determination to leave nothing
unaccomplished, Jesus endured that suffering. He established victory on his
own individual level, but his challenge was how to connect this with all of
human history and how to reenact all past situations and set a victorious
foundation, resolving all past failures, in order to stand as the Messiah.
Foundation of love
here is the
change of blood lineage done? On the individual level, man has to go beyond
the boundary of life and death. The individual has to go through life and
death situations for the sake of God and the future dignity of man. That
becomes the standard of faith.
God created man with His original ideal that man would unite with
His love. Man must long for God's love, even forgetting about his own
life. Unless you sense the heart of that love, you cannot cross the boundary
of death. Therefore, a perfect religion starts not from affirmation but from
negation. It is complete negation! We must consider life itself as something
of little value if we want to confront Satan. That is what everybody is
required to do in order to live a life of faith.
But in Jesus' case, it was not enough to stand on the individual level;
he also had to stand on the level of history. For that purpose he had go
through all the courses of history in order to reverse the direction of
history. No past victorious foundation was offered to him. History could only
be restored through his life of public ministry. For 30 years Jesus developed
the standard of public heart to establish the foundation of love centering
on God's heart in the world. He worked to reestablish the foundation of love
lost since the time of Adam.
In history, love started from parents of evil. So the course must be
reversed by going back to the original ideal family of True Parents centering
on God. In order to do that, God chose certain representatives in history,
in the stages of formation, growth, and completion, to represent history
and the world. History had to develop in this reversal course.
Teaching of resurrection
hat does that
history mean? A person is born through a man's seed going into a woman. Where
does the way of reversal begin? It is within the woman's womb. The condition
must be established so that history is reversed in the womb. For complete
restoration, the starting point is the seed which exists in the body of
a male. The condition must be established in which the seed within a male
is united with God's love. Without establishing that condition, complete
reversal of the blood lineage cannot be established. For the conception of
a pure child, God worked in history through certain families.
Religion must follow God's way. That is why a world level religion must
teach the necessity for rebirth. Therefore, Christianity has become a world
religion both in concept and in reality. It teaches that everybody must be
reborn, just as Jesus told Nicodemus,
'Unless one is born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of God.' (
The foundation of resurrection has not been understood so far. You must
establish the condition to inherit the heart of history; otherwise the start
and motivation for resurrection is not fulfilled. You must understand that.
Then for the blood lineage to be reversed, conditions must be established so
that the seed which is going to become a future child enters the bone marrow
of Adam and connects with God's love. Otherwise, you cannot be born anew as
God's child. This teaching is founded on the Bible, which is God's word.
Love for Jesus
know that Jesus is Lord and that he is the source of love. They want to unite
with him and receive that love. But they cannot do so by simply reading the
Bible. It is only when they yearn and long for Jesus that they can become a
part of him. If they are truly close to Jesus, then when he feels sad, they
feel sad. The emotions or feelings of a man do have an influence upon the seed
in his flesh. When a man feels happy, that feeling of happiness affects his own
seed. Likewise, when he feels sad, that feeling of sadness affects his seed.
Then what does it really mean to believe in Jesus? Jesus is a man. He was
like the original Adam before the fall. So after all, Jesus is the spiritual
father. Without uniting with your father, you cannot be reborn. Christianity
is the only religion that teaches people to long for Jesus and love him and
welcome him as a bride welcomes her bridegroom. We should want to penetrate
Jesus even to the marrow of his bone.
This teaching has a deep meaning, which has two dimensions. Because people
in the world all came from the seeds of Adam, many people are anxious to
go back to the original Adam. The Holy Spirit is the feminine aspect of
God which is urging us to go back to Jesus, the unfallen Adam. Thus, all
Christians must become part of the seed in Jesus' body in order to become
his children, reborn through the Holy Spirit.
How many Christians have held this faith? They have never understood this,
never even dreamed of it. It has been thought that just through believing
in Jesus unconditionally, one can enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
But from the viewpoint of the Principle, restoration is much more
difficult. Even if people say they want to go back to Jesus, they can't just
idolize him, but must actually become part of his flesh and bone marrow. Think
how difficult it has been for God to accomplish this in history.
There have been so many satanic realms, legions of enemies blocking
God from accomplishing His will. God could not defeat the satanic realm
all at once but had to make sacrifices step by step, going through many
struggles. How many people have faith to the extent that they actually want
to go into the flesh and body of Jesus? You cannot enter the body of Jesus
except through heart and love. Only love can connect us with Jesus, not the
truth nor righteousness. Before life there is love. Man is born through
parental love. Without that love there is nothing that can connect us to
God, but with love it is completely possible. Love goes beyond history,
transcending time and space.
Why do I tell you these things so clearly? This is the time in the course
of restoration when you have to take the first step toward a new world,
centering on the heart of God. Therefore, it is a very important period, not
only the period of changing the blood lineage, but the time of change in your
life. You must take the first steps on the foundation of clear understanding;
otherwise you will be accused by Satan, who will say, "Hey, where did you come
from?" You should be able to say, "I came from the Garden of Eden before the
fall, from God's own bosom." You must be able to give a testimony, saying,
"By myself I am not worthy to stand here, but because of the approval of
the person who stood here, I am standing here. The building was built by a
world famous architect, but ownership can be transferred. I have been given
the ownership." If you speak to Satan that way, he will have to surrender.
The way of rebirth
e have to go
into Jesus and connect with God's love, establishing the condition to unite
with the flesh and body of True Parents. You have to follow the path of love
of Jesus and the Holy Spirit, loving and longing for each other. Otherwise
you cannot be reborn. The Holy Spirit is in the position of the spouse of
Jesus. The child must go through the love of the spiritual parents in order
to receive rebirth. Only through the pathway of male female love can there be
birth or rebirth. There is no question about it. For that purpose, you must
be moved by the Holy Spirit to feel great love and affection for Jesus. This
is the work of the Holy Spirit. Jesus is the bridegroom, and the Holy Spirit
is the bride. Through the experience of joyful oneness, the original love
which was lost can be regained and resurrection is experienced. This is a
very important matter.
This has been God's purpose throughout the course of history; this is why
Jesus bore the cross. Because of the great difficulty of restoration it has
taken 6,000 years; otherwise, it would not have taken even six days. Man
himself had to seek this truth and restore his personal authority in the
world, based upon self-awareness. Otherwise, he could not return to God.
Are you joyful that a man like True Father was born in such a world of
despair? You may think so, but I am not so joyful. I have always been fighting
at the risk of my life; you must not forget that. Difficult things in this
world can usually be accomplished, if you just make effort. But what I have
been doing can never be easily achieved; it cannot be done through physical
power or by violence. It must be done in accordance with the Principle,
which is an iron rule.
It is very difficult to aim at the one goal of restoration without deviating
from the central point. Restoration is even more difficult than the original
creation of heaven and earth. I have set up the condition of indemnity for
an internal foundation which you have never dreamt of; there is a realm of
peace now which you can acquire without being aware of it. In this respect,
I have achieved a universal victory by sacrificing throughout my life.
The realm of total perfection cannot be achieved without a condition for
restoring fallen Eve. The Holy Spirit and Jesus must give rebirth centering
upon original love. In order for Jesus to be born, God in His providence
prepared a certain historical foundation of heart. That providence must
involve the womb of a woman. It is there that the solution to the problems
of history must be found, so there must be a fight, a struggle. As a result
of the fall, history started from struggle.
In Adam's family, Abel and Cain fought. For restoration Cain was supposed
to take the position of younger brother Unless the elder brother becomes the
younger brother, there can be no separation from Satan. So there must be a
struggle for restoration. Esau and Jacob had to struggle in this way. They
succeeded in setting up the proper condition of subjugation, but their
struggle started when they were adults, namely, after they were 30 or 40
years old. God still needed a victory prior to adulthood. Thus the fight
had to start from within the mother's womb.
f you can
understand about Tamar, you can understand the whole Principle. Whom did
Tamar have a relationship with? Her father-in-law. How could a baby born
out of such a relationship inherit the blood lineage of Israel?
Actually, the mother of King Solomon was Bathsheba, originally the wife of
Uriah before King David stole her. Then how could the child from that union
become King Solomon? Bathsheba was in the providential position of Eve in the
Garden of Eden, before the fall. David was in the position of Adam, and Uriah
was in the position of the archangel. The archangel distracted the spouse
of Adam with love and stole her away, making her fall. A reversal course
is needed in order to indemnify that; therefore a person in the position of
the archangel's wife had to be restored to the position of Eve. Therefore,
the child who was born on the foundation of that reversal could be born as
a child of heavenly love, a child of glory. Solomon was such a child of glory.
The woman named Tamar had a relationship with her father-in-law,
Judah. According to the law in those days, a woman who committed adultery
had to be stoned to death. Tamar's first husband had died, and then her
second husband had died also; but she knew God loved the blood lineage
of her husband. She knew she had to protect and continue that blood
lineage. For Tamar, her personal dignity was not a factor. She was only
concerned about preserving the blood lineage which God loved. Since she
loved that blood lineage, she stood in a providential position and she
was able to establish the proper condition of heart. With such a heart,
she had a relationship with her father-in-law. [Twins were conceived. At
the time of birth, one baby's hand emerged, but was withdrawn. The
two boys struggled, and the other baby was actually born first. See
Genesis 38:27-30. This represented the younger brother gaining the
victory over the older brother in the womb, even before birth.]
The standard of victory gained in the womb of Tamar was handed down from
generation to generation through the tradition of Israel, the descendants
who believed in Judaism. Why did they have to establish a foundation for
the Messiah at the national level? Because there were already many nations
in the satanic world, God had to establish a national standard with which
to deal with them. God's side had to stand in the position of Abel on the
national level. For that purpose, God guided the Israelites and helped them
develop their victorious foundation on the national level.
was another girl who regarded the historical significance of her actions
to be more important than her own dignity or her own social environment.
She regarded God's will as the highest priority. That girl was Mary. Mary
maintained the standard of victory and Satan could not accuse her. So on the
foundation established by Mary, Jesus was conceived. It was that victorious
foundation which qualified Jesus to be born from God. Without coming on such
a historical foundation, nobody could be qualified to be the Messiah.
Therefore, Jesus said,
"I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father,
but by me." (
Because he was born from that unique victorious blood lineage, he could be
the only begotten son, beloved by God. This is logical. If you do not believe
in Jesus, you cannot go back to God. That is the absolute truth, but so far,
nobody has been able to understand the true meaning of this. There are many
religions, but only Christianity can stand in the absolute position of true
son. All other religions stand in the position of servants or adopted sons.
was born in this way, could he be in a position to be accused by Satan? No,
he could not. Therefore, both in heaven and on earth, angels were mobilized to
welcome and attend him at his birth. From then, the new world was begun. On
the internal, religious level, Judaism was in the archangel position, and on
the external, national level Pontius Pilate was in the archangel position. If
Jesus' family had fully supported him, and especially if John the Baptist
had followed him, then Judaism could have completely united with Jesus,
for John was known as a prophet. If they had all cooperated and if Judaism
and the nation of Israel were united with Jesus, then influencing Rome would
not have been a problem. If Jesus' followers had been able to establish a
nation, they would have influenced the entire Roman civilization. The whole
Mediterranean world could have been under the guidance of Jesus. If that
had happened, the unification of the whole world would have followed.
Jesus wanted to build the Kingdom of Heaven on earth in that way, but he
was given no foundation to do so. As a result, so many sacrifices had to be
made during the past 2,000 years, and now the time has come for the Lord of
the Second Advent to appear.
Christianity today is in the position of the second Israel, but it has no
nation on earth. The Jewish people have also undergone persecution for the
past 2,000 years. The Jewish people should have established a God-centered
nation centering upon Jesus, but they did not. Therefore they were scattered
all over the world and then they went through terrible persecution Part of
my mission is to rescue them. Since Jesus was abandoned by 12 disciples,
the Jewish people now have to achieve victory through confrontation with
more than 12 Islamic nations of the world.
Jesus was born in the nation of Israel, but Christianity cannot
claim any nation. God created the earth, but is there any nation which is
God's? No. Everything that was built up by the first Israel fell apart and
was lost. The Jews were scattered and driven away. Christians also had to
There are many political and cultural spheres, yet there are no
unifying cultural values on earth. The Christian people were persecuted
by governments and sovereignties in this world because there was no law
to protect them. Religion came to be separated from politics. Originally,
however, religion and politics were to be united. The separation between
religion and politics became necessary in order to protect religion. Now
there are many complicated problems to solve.
God wants to plant His footprints on earth. No matter how vast the universe
is, one beginning point is essential. Therefore, He must start from some
point, and now is the time to start. That is why I selected and blessed the
Holy Grounds, where we go to pray and make offerings.
God created the earth through His absolute authority. Let's think about
going back to the origin. This world was to be established in the name of
God and True Parents; so all things started from Adam and Eve, who were to
be the original True Parents and one with God. They were to have authority
over the archangel and live forever in joy. Therefore, we must become one,
centered upon True Parents.
You must register as a citizen of a restored nation centered upon God,
but you don't have such a nation. There is no foundation upon which you can
declare clearly against the satanic world that you have your own country.
You must understand that. You are supposed to be registered as the citizens
of Heaven. That sovereignty may be either big or small, but whether it is
big like America or very small, the authority of one vote is the same.
Israelites without a nation
Church members are like the Israelites; they are a chosen people without
a nation. Therefore they have to suffer but no matter what, they have to
overcome and occupy the original nation. We must establish one nation under
God's sovereignty; for that purpose we have been passing through the course
What is our hope? Our hope is to someday restore God's sovereignty and
build a nation which we can be proud of and register ourselves as citizens of
that nation. How soon can we achieve it? We must pour everything we have into
the fulfillment of that purpose; that is the Principle. When we register as
citizens, we want to offer everything we have to the nation. Our position
will be determined by order of registration. Those who register first will
stand in the position of the first ancestors; those who register second will
stand in the position of the second ancestors, and so on. They will come
to establish the authority in that restored sovereign nation.
Then what will a citizen of that nation be like? Will the Japanese people
become those citizens? Will the American people become those citizens? You
have to help the Unification Church develop. Japan is designated as the Eve
nation, but she cannot become the Eve nation by doing nothing. Everybody
must become united with a patriotic spirit in order to prosper. If that kind
of foundation had been established at the time of Jesus, then would Jesus
have had to die? If Jesus had come on the foundation which we now have in
the Unification Church, he would never have been crucified.
Lord of the Second Advent
Jesus died a miserable death. The seed within Jesus' bone marrow was
connected spiritually to God and produced spiritual salvation, but from the
Principle point of view Jesus must come again to fulfill his mission. The
Messiah absolutely must come again into this world. The worldwide Christian
foundation has been laid for that purpose. God has been working through
history and now He is preparing the democratic world to be in the superior
position in the struggle against the communist world.
Within the democratic realm, Christianity stands in the spiritual position
of the second Israel on the world level. That is the Principle point of
view. Centering on the worldwide foundation of Christianity and the other
religions including Judaism, God's foundation is being made.
The Christian foundation has come through three stages. The first was
Catholicism, but Catholicism did not complete its mission, so Protestantism
emerged as the development on the growth level. From the Principle point
of view, Catholicism is relatively an Old Testament type faith while
Protestantism is a New Testament type faith. Thus Protestantism insists
on the importance of the words of truth. What is the central purpose of
these words? It is to point to the Lord of the Second Coming. That is why
the words have been taught on a worldwide foundation. But the substance of
the truth has to be imbued with heart, otherwise it cannot stand in front of
God. Those who occupy the central position within the Christian tradition at
this time must have the Christian truth but also the content of heart. That
is the Unification Church.
for the Unification Church to establish the worldwide foundation, it must be
welcomed by Protestantism, which has a New Testament type responsibility.
If Protestantism welcomes the Unification Church and they are united,
then the foundation is made from the formation stage, to the growth stage and
to the perfection stage. If the Christian churches become united, it would
be as if Israel and Judaism had united into one country. So if Christianity
becomes united, the democratic countries will naturally become united. Then
the world can stand in the sphere of salvation.
Fourteen years after World War I world communism became a problem. Why 14
years? If a solution is not found to a problem within 14 years, then there
will be even greater problems and seven years of struggle. If you look at
the political situation of the world from the Principle point of view it is
very interesting, but I will not talk about it in detail.
By myself, I have the mission to establish the foundation of unity with
Protestantism, but I could not do it in the past. Instead, it opposed me.
Human history began with the elder brother hitting the younger brother.
In order to receive the younger brother, the older brother must trust
in God and know Him in the true sense. If you continue to cling to the
traditional teachings with which you were raised, it will be difficult for
you to accept a new expression of truth. I was put in the position to be
opposed by the churches, so I was put in a position just like that of Jesus,
who was persecuted by the religious leaders. I stood in the position to
inherit Jesus' mission and had to follow the path of struggle for the sake
of righteousness. For the past 20 years I had to fight to indemnify the
history of the previous 2,000 years.
I start to pay that indemnity? It could not be done in the southern part
of Korea; it was necessary to go to the North. To go to North Korea means
to go to the headquarters of Satan. I had to go to the communist world,
the worldwide satanic realm, prepared to die. It was just like Christianity
trying to penetrate and convert Rome. After the early Christians had been
persecuted by the leaders of Judaism, they spread to Rome and finally dominated
Rome after a struggle of 400 years. Christianity established the horizontal
foundation for freedom in Rome.
In the same way, I had to go to the North and there struggle against
communism. I established a foundation there and brought many people into the
truth. I had to go through many difficulties, such as prison life. When I was
imprisoned I knew my disciples must not be like the disciples of Jesus; they
must not run away from me, no matter how terrible the communist government
was. There had to be a certain number of disciples who were that determined.
When Jesus was arrested, the Kingdom of Heaven on earth was lost.
Therefore I had to restore disciples from within the prison and establish the
foundation to restore the mission of Jesus. Jesus' mission was not to restore
only individuals; originally his disciples should have established their own
families, starting with the three central apostles. So the purpose of Jesus'
coming was not just to get individual disciples. The disciples were necessary
in order to indemnify the conditions for the perfection of Cain in three ages,
representing three ages of archangels opposing God's providence.
The position of the three disciples
in the position of Abel. Peter, James and John stood in the position of Cain
and were supposed to indemnify the failure of Cain, who did not obey God. If
those three disciples had offered their lives together with Jesus, then Jesus
would not have had to die and go to the spiritual world so early; he could have
continued to work on earth along with the Holy Spirit. If that had happened,
then Christianity would have spread to the world level in 600 years. But Jesus
died. If the husband goes into the spiritual world, the bride must pray with
utmost seriousness; otherwise she cannot meet the bridegroom. If Jesus had
not died on the cross and the disciples had united, then it would be like Cain
and Abel uniting; together they could welcome God. It is the Principle. They
could have established the horizontal foundation for God on the earth.
Jesus wanted to indemnify the pain of God, who had much grief at the
time Eve was lost. Jesus came to restore that situation, centering upon
Mary, but it was not completed. God lost the women of three generations:
grandmother, mother, and spouse. If those three generations of women
are not restored, then there can be no children who are truly united as
Cain and Abel under True Parents. Therefore it is necessary to have three
women in that position pay indemnity. Without establishing the horizontal
foundation of the Eve nation, restoration is not done. Jesus had to die
because that condition was not met. Japan also must fulfill that condition,
otherwise its restoration cannot be accomplished soon.
Twenty years ago, I came back to the South with three women disciples and
one young man, Reverend Won Pil Kim. At that time I made a new start with
the Unification Church. The Principle is not something we simply have in our
mind. It must be based on practice. I escaped from the communist sphere and
started anew, establishing the foundation in the South. That is the way the
Unification Church began and developed.
Since Jesus was opposed by the leaders of Judaism, the Unification Church
had to follow the same path and achieve victory. Restoration must reverse
past failure, so we have established the family foundation. The established
Christian churches have opposed us. I wanted to establish the Abel position
within the Christian sphere. The Unification Church was born second; therefore
it is in the Abel position. Abel has grown up, and now he has an external
foundation with which to meet the elder brother. The Unification Church
is trying to unite with established Christianity and restore the unity of
brotherhood which we lost 20 years ago. When the elder brother and the younger
brother become united, their family becomes united naturally. Therefore I
suffered a lot to establish the individual foundation of Abel.
I have been going the way of sacrifice and suffering. By successfully going
through that process and safeguarding it, we have come to the point where we
are recognized by our nation. Now, no matter how much established Christianity
may oppose us, we stand in this superior position. The established Korean
Christian churches are in the position of Judaism 2,000 years ago, and they
are turning in a positive way. This symbolizes the Israelites centering upon
Judaism becoming united with Jesus.
The Korean government has become more cooperative than before, so we are
extending our hands in friendship. The Unification movement must promote the
Victory Over Communism (VOC) activities. Korea must do VOC work. The Korean
nation must be united with our movement in this way; otherwise, there is no
way it can survive.
The change of blood lineage
course of restoration I started from the position of servant of servants,
like a beggar in prison. Restoration must start from the position of beggar
or prisoner. From the lowest miserable position we have come up to this
point. Until our position reaches the national level I will not appear
officially in public places.
From the Principle point of view, I first have to lay the national
indemnity foundation. I have become a man of victory, so from now on we
will see the horizontal foundation on the national level. That horizontal
foundation must be done through Japan; that is the Principle formula.
Many prophets and pioneers in Japan had to make sacrifices in the past. For
what purpose did they do that? It is, of course, necessary to establish a
nation in the masculine position, but their sacrifices were to establish an
Eve nation. The Eve nation should be filled with gratitude to be suffering
for the sake of the Adam nation. That is the historical task of Japan.
Who is qualified to change your blood lineage? Nobody else can do it; you
must know that in order to do this, I have had to bear the cross of the heart,
an incredible cross. But now that the foundation has been established, you
can receive it without much suffering or effort. You are given the Blessing,
which means you are given the way to the new blood lineage. You are standing
on the foundation of thousands of years of God's suffering, as well as my
own suffering. When you get married you become engrafted; by being engrafted
you come to have a different blood lineage. This is what I have done so far.
Many people were born in the past and have already gone into the spiritual
world. How much difference exists between those people and ourselves? There
is a vast difference in terms of the standard of faith, like the difference
between heaven and earth. Through the Blessing, you have been given the
most precious heavenly grace, but if you misuse it there is no way to go;
even Satan will claim a higher position than you.
Satan became Satan at the growth level. In your case, if you fall
during the completion stage, Satan will tell you, "You must become my
servants." That's how Satan will judge you. That's the worst situation,
so it's very serious. Your marriage is not just an ordinary marriage of this
world. Far from it. It is most precious, centering upon the heart of heaven
and earth. You must perfect your heart within your family, centered upon God's
love, and you must perfect your personality with glory and joy. Perfected
man and perfected woman must unite to fulfill their responsibility and their
purpose. In the process of fulfilling that purpose, everything you do should be
done with gratitude. The original world would have been the world of heart and
gratitude. If you stand on that foundation, there can be no chance of falling.
Those of us who stand on the foundation of restoration are required to
go forward to fulfill the purpose of the world. In the days ahead you must
experience God's feelings and the heart which God had before creation. You
should go forward with gratitude toward the fulfillment of the purpose of
creation. Although you may suffer, the suffering is not just for its own
sake. You will receive more blessings, which are accumulated secretly in
heaven, by going the way of suffering. Therefore, be grateful.
Husband and wife, united with hearts of love, must establish their
family beyond any levels of the past, dedicated toward the goal for the
future. Otherwise you cannot enter the eternal Kingdom of Heaven where God
dwells. That is the ultimate goal and God's purpose of creation. It sounds
like a dream, but it is attainable. Therefore, you must promise me that you
will go toward that goal of the ideal family. Those of you who want to become
like that, raise both your hands and pledge. Let us pray.
Father, we now realize what kind of original family You have been looking
for. We also realize that from now on we are destined to work toward that
ideal family with all our hearts and all our strength. Please guide us and
bless us, so that we can live a pure life, with a purified blood lineage, to
become people who are embraced deeply in Your eternal love. When we realize
how much suffering You have been going through in the process of history in
order to restore this heart, we have nothing to say to You. Father, please
purify those of us who pledge ourselves in front of You, raising both of
our hands, with the determination that we will offer everything to You. We
are really grateful to You for the grace and love with which You have been
protecting and guiding us so far.
We thank You, Heavenly Father, for having taught such a wonderful heavenly
secret. We now stand in the situation which people in the secular world
cannot even dream about, and we don't know what to offer You in return.
Father, we now clearly realize that we must wholeheartedly offer ourselves
to You on Your altar as substantial offerings. When we think of how much
You have been suffering, we can never fully express our heart of gratitude.
Also, we are truly grateful to our True Parents for giving us such a
blessing and grace. We pray that from now on we really will go forward with
determination and gratitude. Please guide us and encourage us, so that we
can help each other, knowing that without our spouses we tend to fail. We
have to protect each other, pray for each other; we have to become truly
the most intimate friends, intimate, closely related brothers and sisters,
parents and children, so that we can become qualified to build the world of
original love and great glory.
We have now heard about something very awesome, that is, the change of blood
lineage. It is a fearful thing, when we think of how difficult the course of
restoration has been. We have come here totally ignorant, but we have been
following You. We have been going this way filled with a stubborn attitude,
thinking that all the glory should belong to us. When we think of the past,
how foolish we have been. The more we understand, the more we realize,
and we feel ashamed of ourselves. We really don't have any place to hide;
everything belongs to heaven, everything is True Parents. We need nothing more.
We now understand this, so we would like to deepen that faith, and we
would like to become a husband and wife who can help each other establish the
lifelong foundation of victory, leaving a foothold of glory for you. God,
please remember us and embrace our children and embrace us as Your eternal
children; feed us and embrace us as our parent.
Father, please bless us and guide us so that we can become a true man
and true woman, and true husband and true wife, and establish a truly
God centered four position foundation, centered upon Your love and heart.
Father, we realize that how our spouse looks physically is not the point.
His or her physical shape is not important. The important thing is how much
we can be vertically connected in heart with You and how close we can get
to You. That is what matters.
So even without our understanding, please guide us, Father; help us and
guide us so that we can help each other, support each other, and save each
other and pass through this satanic world of evil. Please purify both our hands
with which we are now pledging. Please purify us as couples. Please sanctify
us as those who are promised to enter the Heavenly Kingdom. No matter how
much suffering there may be ahead, we will never forget how much You have been
suffering, how many tears You shed, and we will help each other and comfort
each other. Please guide us so that we can become true husband and wife. We
will keep deep in our mind what we have heard today. Please bless us so that
we can become true ancestors and fulfill our mission. If we cannot fulfill,
then we will have to hand down our task to our descendants from generation
Father, once again we ask You to guide us and protect us so that we can
become truly worthy to serve as pioneers of the creation of the world of heart,
the creation of new ideal families. We know that without You everything will be
in vain, everything impossible. We must not perpetuate a tragic history. Let
us stand in the position to leave everything joyful behind us. Please protect
us, Heavenly Father, and please bless us so that we can become a true family,
a true husband, a true wife. We leave everything up to You. Please guide us,
in the name of our True Parents we pray. Amen.
