Rev. Sun Myung Moon
June 5, 1989
We have all been concentrating on the dispensation in America. From now on, the dispensation of restoration will be worldwide. Individual assignments will be international. The HSA President in Africa may be American. Why? To connect the flow of culture and make it supranational. If we don’t do that, Americans would keep just their American culture creating a great hindrance to world unity. Isn’t that easy to understand? We must always think we are one tribe, no matter where we live or what color we are, we are one love race with the same cultural background. So a conference like this is always part of a systematic training which we will need to conduct our worldwide dispensation. Although we are living here in America and working for the sake of America, we always have to keep our international goal in mind.
The kind of activity we have been doing will be a thing of the past. Why have we done things in such an inefficient, very crude way that is without results and without a clear idea of progress? It’s sole purpose was to let people know that the Unification Church exists and what the Unification Church represents. Until now, we have been spread out too widely so that we could cover the entire territory. We lost man hours by thinly spreading our energies, without gaining a tangible result. From now on, we will concentrate in one area, invest in it and be consistent about everything to penetrate that area. We will use our newspapers to introduce America to what we are doing and why.
Just think, if we advertised for 40 days through NBC and CBS about what we are doing, how effective would it be? We couldn’t catch up to that result if we worked for 400 years the way we are doing now. Until now, we had no choice. So when Father worked the way he did here in America, his goal was always never to sacrifice even one life, not to have one martyr. So Father spread out to let the public know about him. Compare this to Jesus’ time. After the crucifixion, Jesus couldn’t establish his foundation so the people could at least know he was not bad. If only that foundation could have been laid, then Christianity could have been saved thousands and thousands of martyrs. This is what Father had to think in the beginning. So I came here and had to fight against the Fraser attack just to win over that area. That opposition was overcome. Now all over the United States, they at least know the Unification Church is not bad. This will save us from having to pay the price of martyrdom. That’s what I wanted. Worldwide, not just in America, they know we’re not bad and that’s quite different from Jesus’ time.
So 1976 was the peak of the persecution–not only here in America, but all around the world. I grasped that opportunity and in 1975 sent out all the missionaries to all 120 countries that drew the persecution towards us all at one time. The Carter administration was trying to influence all the countries of the world and that’s why they were investigating the Unification Church everywhere around the world. They gathered all that material, analyzed that information and used it in court. So Rev. Moon was put in jail in America like a bandit. What kind of legal standard are they making for the future? In the end, it gave the image to all the world that America lost to Rev. Moon and that Rev. Moon actually won over the administration’s persecution quite clearly. That’s a most historical event. That was my strategy, to overcome all the persecution all in one time; after that none of it bothered us.
We must understand what was done here in America to make the world foundation on which we are standing, by fighting against unjust persecution by the American government, which was like the Roman Senate. We have to have that kind of heart and courage. Once we understand how much it took for Father to fight against them and win, we have to inherit that 100% so we will be absolutely confident that whatever persecution comes in the future is peanuts when compared with the foundation we are standing on.
Unite with Father, then the American government is fighting alone. Even if you don’t help me, only follow and attend me, no matter how difficult the persecution is, then it is no problem. I am the center; the center works all night, never minding the season, never taking a vacation. Think about that!
You must be the kind of leader that has strong and stable roots. From there God can help you. The spirit world can help if you have that kind of winning attitude. That kind of help from the spirit world always and forever brings result for one purpose. God plants deep roots everywhere.
Satan, through the power of communism, wants to pull out those roots. Therefore, communist power stays at the bottom of society in the cultural area instead of becoming the universal power. No matter how great communism’s power is, it cannot deny or pull out my situation. You have to live life strongly for God. Otherwise, the spirit world cannot help you. Spirit world is always going to be helping Father. Why? Father took one direction and didn’t quit. Once I stood in that place, I was steadfast, allowing no weak link. No matter how much I wanted to weaken my standard, I could not. Even if I wanted to push out that strong foundation, I could not shake it. Stand in one place steadfastly so that the spirit world up can keep close to us.
How can the spirit world help you? You assess point 1, looking at point 1, hearing point 1, talking about point 1, testing, smelling, touching, feeling point 1–always one! You say, “I am a God’s son, I am the center! My major aim is to stand here. Anyone who wants to go must go by me. You will take your place as center post and master of that boat. No matter which way it leans, the Unification net cannot be taken up. You all are world leaders.
We have to make a new reformation from this point–a revolution. We are not an American movement; we are a worldwide movement centered on the Fatherland. Many kinds of cultural backgrounds are in our movement. We have the background of the spirit world. The many generations of your ancestors are following one way. No matter what, your ancestors are there. From throughout human history, many famous people are here–they cannot say, “I want to work only this way.” There is only the way of the Principle; that is the only foundation, the only pattern, and everyone must follow it.
What kind of pride do we have? The only pride we can have is making this way our very own.
Ever since Father came to America 15 years ago, I could not trust any American leaders’ words. So for a long time, you have complained to me: “When will there be a time for the democratic way?” How can there be a democratic time? In terms of restoration, can democracy bring about God’s purpose? No! Clearly no! Until now, I couldn’t take an interest in the American way. My interest was turned the other way toward making and maintaining a foundation for world restoration. I am the center. You have to follow. No matter how great are the American leaders, no matter how rich they are time, who can take that kind of responsibility? It is not America or the American people. How can they grow up? How can they be educated? Father studied this point
From now you have to change both your mind and your body, appearance, everything–even your atmosphere. Otherwise, the American movement will not become prosperous, but, rather suffer miserably. From now, what kind of attitude will the leaders have toward me? You cannot know that until you reform and revolutionize yourself. Up until now it has been the nighttime. Now it is noontime. At noontime you can see everything and everyone. Do you know that the modern American situation needs strong and correct leaders, one-direction leaders? Otherwise, you cannot save this country. No matter how strongly the leaders want to save this American ship, they cannot do it. Neither the State department nor the American Armed Forces can do that. There are maybe 700 thousand students in the universities, but all the intelligence of the university professors cannot save the youth. It takes more than the American educational system. Even famous organizations cannot save the present American situation.
You see it in your heart! You hear it in your heart! Only the Unification Church can help. There must be a 180 degree change–otherwise we cannot have hope for the United States. It is a miserable situation. America itself is crumbling. This is not America’s problem alone–all over the world this problem exists. That kind of evil spreads out all over the third world infecting the new generation of youth. They know clearly “I know this is bad.” But they cannot cut off or separate from it. This is the agony of American youth. When I was in jail, I saw that type of youth many times. By their appearance and talking, you would think “He is a smart, handsome guy.” They said to me while I was there, “I knew it was wrong, but I couldn’t cut away from it by myself.” Who can solve this? Only the Unification Church can do it–otherwise there is no hope forever in America! Now I am worrying about this point. Spiritual world exists more than the physical reality. High level purpose, whole purpose–I can create that enlightenment. That means you must have that kind of spiritual enlightenment to open the spirit world gate. Do you have that kind of power? Spiritual power is vertical power. Vertical power is the place where vertical motion occurs.
In your life of faith as a member of the Unification Church, you have to ask yourself, “How much have I taken care of the youth? Really, am I a center leader or Satan’s leader?” You know that answer very well. Can you clearly visualize God’s viewpoint of the position of state leader? Compare yourself with that vision. Clearly understand yourself: Am I really the representative of God, the spiritual leader, the high level Unification leader of this state in America in place of Rev. Moon? Compare yourself and realize how much more you have to grow.
Look at the churches in America. They are losing membership and have little hope. If you see a huge church building, open the door and go inside. As you close the door observe who is sitting in the chairs. Their few participating members are mostly senior citizens. Are they the owner of the churches? Can God look down and feel, “You are my church owner?” How can churches regain their honor? No matter where you look, you see that kind of situation in the churches.
How old are all of you? In your thirties and forties. Your youth is gone and soon you will be in the same situation. This is a very serious situation if no one helps you.
So we’ll decide how we should deal with this kind of circumstance. I already proclaimed that beginning in 1990, I will not use an interpreter, but will speak only in Korean. Do you remember? Should or shouldn’t I do that? I always do what I promise. We promised we would learn Korean by then so we must do it.
How can we participate in the providence with Father? Can we learn Korean in just another six months? You may think, “What kind of irrationality is that?” You might think such a statement is pure tyranny. Did you forget that I learned a foreign language in a short time? How difficult it was for me to learn English! Are we going to complain or are we going to say, “Father, no matter how impossible this is, this is the way it must be.” Or you might say, “Father, since you speak English, why don’t you continue to teach in English?” I know that might be more convenient, but the Divine Principle says that we should teach using only the True Parents’ language. There is no question if that is the way it should be or could be, it must be that way eventually. That’s what Divine Principle dictates. In the spirit world we will learn that it is unprincipled to wait until we go to spirit world to learn Korean. They will demand that we should have learned the True Parents’ language while we were on earth as Father told us. But for whatever reason, we didn’t do it. Our ancestors will really accuse us for our failure, because we were the only ones who had a chance to do it, not they.
How can you avoid that judgment? Think how miserable you are if you are standing in that position. You are younger than Father who is now 70 years old. Seventy is the grandpa age. I had no time to study English because guests were constantly visiting East Garden, often until midnight. I was always waiting for them, seated in one place.
After they finally left, I would study English. I could not speak in English, nor could I understand the words at the many meetings. English idioms are the most difficult concept; I memorized them all, because I couldn’t understand them. To do that took a lot of time out of my schedule. Late evening was the only time I had to memorize that completely. In my mind I made the decision to do that. Later as I would get into bed, I’d think, “Last time I memorized those words. What were those words?” I would completely forget and would have to memorize them again. I repeated one idiom over 20 times.
Sometimes I would forget names. I knew the face, but not the name. So I would study that name 20 more times. Now that I’m getting old, I have to refresh my memory more frequently. Please realize that is the kind of serious situation I studied in endlessly. It wasn’t so easy. Compare yourself with me. You are 10 to 20 years younger than me.
I came to the Western world standing in the parent’s position to Western children. The children were talking but I couldn’t understand them. I thought, “I need to learn English” So I started to study it. In summation, I always took the responsibility to understand. So you cannot complain about having to learn Korean in front of me. I did it and have complete confidence in you who have an easier way than I did.
The primary reason you have to absolutely learn Korean is the spirit world. Another reason is that Father’s words are published in 200 full volumes. These are a priceless treasure nothing on earth can equal. Are we going to study Father’s words by translation or in their original form? That’s why we have to learn Korean.
The other day on the boat, I spoke to one professor. The professor was asking me if we shouldn’t form an association for the Korean language? I thought it was very appropriate and something the church members should have suggested, not a non-member. The professor had been writing a letter, drawing references from Father’s words, whereas church members didn’t even know where we could find that point in Father’s words. But others noticed and wrote the suggestion to Father. Scholars are very quick in this respect and one of them began to feel the need to learn and promulgate Korean by forming a study group. They understood that Father had already proclaimed we should learn Korean.
This particular scholar thought he would be the first to learn Korean in Europe. Then he would put all the Unification Church leaders under him in Europe. He didn’t clarify that directly to Father, but that’s what was going on in his mind. Have you ever heard of a leader who doesn’t have a command of the original language? It is miserable that scholars can act on the need to learn Korean but church leaders cannot. Doesn’t it stand to reason when I pointed out, “Don’t you think we need to learn Korean?” that I was speaking as a result of what I did so intensely all of my life?
Now I am going to give it to us through the Korean language. How can you not want to understand or receive this by reading or listening to my words directly in Korean? If we go to spirit world after listening and learning Father’s teaching from an English translation, then how can we raise up our heads and proudly say, “I have heard Father’s words”? Certainly, Father would not be happy: “After all I have done, you didn’t even learn Korean.” All spirit world is looking down at you learning Father’s words through translation. Your mind will be in agony in spirit world for you accepted the translation way after I said so many times to learn Korean. When you go into spirit world, how can you meet me if you speak only English? I knew that it would take a long time and how difficult it would be.
Should or shouldn’t I use an interpreter in 1990? You said “no”, Father shouldn’t use an interpreter. That means you are about to become dumb, having ears but unable to hear. Since Father said it, we should do it. Dispensationally, this is the time to learn Korean. During the seven year period of 1985-1990, everything must be completely done. Now that we know the native land of the Unification race we should have a native language. Also, tribal messiahs must all speak Korean. One day there may be a Korean member assigned here, just to supplement that responsibility.
Already our second generation is learning Korean in the Little Angels’ School in Korea. The numbers of children are rapidly increasing, so I am thinking of buying more middle schools and high schools in Korea to accommodate them in their efforts to learn Korean.
Why is it so necessary? We cannot speak many languages and expect to create one country. What is the first verse of pledge five? “We are proud of the one sovereignty, proud of the one people, proud of the one land, proud of the one language . . . ” Father’s main project has been to create one nation.
Everyone wants to lead their own culture into the highest level–that is humanity’s highest desire and purpose. The next part is: “We are proud of the one language and culture centered upon God, proud of becoming the child of the one True Parent, proud of the family who is to inherit one tradition.” We are proud of belonging to the blood lineage inheriting Father’s tradition.
But God’s lineage cannot just appear. I had to establish a place for the relationship of parent to exist. The most important task and highest purpose of the Principle is to get rid of Satan’s blood lineage. How about you? What kind of blood runs in your veins? True Parents’ bloodship. Vertically, God the creator and horizontally, True Parents. These are combined to eliminate the wrong blood lineage and to create a new blood lineage which will be the salvation of man from Satan’s world. It will be completely separated from Satan who can never touch it again, for we have a new root. One is the root of the true olive tree and the other is a wild olive tree. All the wild olive branches must be cut away to receive the grafting of the true love branch, making that tree’s fruit the same as that of the true olive tree. Otherwise, there could be no way for salvation and no one could enter heaven. This is the Principle. I have been living my life guided by this perspective.
The seventh part of the pledge is to work to create the world of one heart. That means one brotherhood, all around the globe and even in the spirit world. The base of world peace is parents. Without parents there is no peace. The word “parents” then means “the root of all peace.” Accept the True Parents and from there everything can be solved. The fallen world wants parents, so parents is the highest point of purpose and that is why tribal messiahship means parentship.
Messiahship’s true mission is parentship, so tribal messiahship is the highest gift you could receive from Father. You don’t realize that yet, but you should pray to understand, “What is salvation?”
Which would you prefer: to use the same language in the spirit world you are using here or to learn a different language all over again when you go to the spirit world? Before you answer, please think about this concept from the viewpoint of the Principle. There can be only one language spoken because this world and the spirit world are united with the same central love. So, by 1990, there will be no translating.
Also, by that time, I won’t be able to come to America as freely as I do now. There will be a lot of people visiting me so they should know where I can be found. I will be found in one permanent place. At that time, we should not complain, “Oh Father, you used to come to us and talk to us. Why do you not come to us and teach us anymore?” Also, maybe there will be a condition that only those who speak Korean will be allowed to come. Will you say, “Then Father, I won’t go to Korea to visit you.” It’s fine with me. But is it going to be fine with you? There will be a lot of things we cannot even imagine that will happen during these next 10 years.
Forty years ago, when I gave a talk, no one, not even those who wanted to, could believe it would happen. But as the 40 years went by, they saw that it not only happened, but that I was actually making it happen. Now at this juncture, I am saying the same thing again. The chances of my words becoming a reality are better than 40 years ago. In 1983 when I said there would be no interpreting as of 1990, you might have thought: “How could that happen?” But now we’re at the threshold of 1990 and that event is about to happen. Should we or shouldn’t we actually carry out this plan? Should I stop using an interpreter in 1990?” That means unless you learn Korean, you are not going to be able to come to conferences. At any rate, we better start learning Korean seriously.
Japanese members thought they might be an exception because Father speaks fluent Japanese. But that is not so. It should be easier for them to learn Korean.
This is a public statement because we must have a tradition. Not only does it apply to this year but a thousand years from now. We should begin sometime and now is the time. If you don’t speak Korean, then you should send a representative who does speak Korean. Since this is a big decision for both myself and all of you, if you have any objections you have to voice them now. Later, you can never say, “Oh, impossible, impractical.”
If you have some reason to oppose, please say it now. What about non-members? This will be up to Father to decide for they don’t have the knowledge that we have received. In those circumstances, I may speak English, Japanese, or use an interpreter. But as far as our family members are concerned, there will be no translations. I will only speak Korean. Those who say, “Yes Father, we must do it” raise your hands.
I realize the grave importance of this situation. In fact, it is a revolution. On the other hand, what advantages can you see? A book could be written without needing to be translated into 100 different languages, eliminating the waste of time and materials in such repetition and interpretation. How convenient it will be to need only one book that everyone can understand. It is difficult to learn a foreign language, so one language would mean no foreign language study. Our offspring would have an easier time. It takes a great ancestor to make this accomplishment a reality. Who is that great ancestor? All of us.
What about the quality or degree of excellence of the Korean language for this type of worldwide usage? Is it going to be an inferior language? No! The Korean language is a language that can meet any challenge. Theoretically, you can learn the 24 characters in 30 minutes. So in 30 minutes you can master the basic building blocks of the Korean language. After that, you should be able to spell it at will. The pronunciation of the Korean language is very versatile and comprehensive. Everyone can understand Korean because its pronunciation is very accurate. There is no sound the Koreans cannot make. So the Korean language is the highest level in all areas: phonics, composition, pronunciation and spelling. It’s no accident that a person such as Father would be born in such a culture. How could I have been born in an underdeveloped country with a primitive or very poor language? It would have caused so much pain and difficulty to the rest of the world. This is not the case with the Korean language.
Do you know what is being talked about in the scholastic world? They are proving that the origin of the Chinese language and culture is Korea. I believe that. It is not a Korean, but several Chinese scholars who are saying that. Other Chinese scholars really don’t like this information. The Japanese people have already solved the problem for they have no way of denying that Korea is their ancestral root.
Korea is the birthplace of an ancient civilization that started thousands of years ago. The longest history of civilization belongs to Korea. So it is no accident that I was born in Korea. Historically Korea was invaded by other countries more than 930 times. But not once was the Korean sovereignty lost; somehow it managed to keep its lineage. There were times when Korea volunteered to belong to China, seeking protection from a big country. With the exception of those times, Korea was never ruled over or annihilated. Prior to Korea’s history, no one knows. We have reason to believe the Koreans were scattered about, living in what is now Manchuria and northern China. The Great Wall was built to protect China from the Korean race. So Koreans were very near at that time and were a very courageous and righteous people. Even Confucius, who represented a standard of ethics to millions of people, said Korea was the most ethical country in the East. Throughout history the Russians fought against the Oriental peoples. When an Oriental person died, they could search the body to identify it: a Japanese person would always carry a dagger or some weapon, as did also the Chinese; but Koreans never carried a weapon. The only thing a Korean carried was a flint to make a fire.
On the Chinese Siberian border, sometimes a stranger would wander in the wilderness and knock on the door for help. The Chinese homeowner would ask, “Who is it?” If the answer would come, “I am a Korean,” then they would open the door. When Koreans were given lodgings, they would never steal. That’s why the Chinese opened their doors very easily. But if the answer would be, “I am Chinese or Japanese” then they would not open the door.
Although it has been invaded over 930 times, Korea has never retaliated or attacked another nation. Genghis Khan was a legendary figure who occupied all the European countries. History says that he was invincible. But that is not true for he was very badly defeated when he tried to invade Korea. This fact is backed by scholarly proof and findings. Koreans are very courageous people but never wage war against another. How did the Koreans defend themselves? Once the Koreans realized there was an imperial danger they forged a unity never seen before. That’s how they survived.
Never in Korean history has anyone brought more unity to Korea than Father. I have brought Korea into the real and essential unity. How could Korean people get married in mass ceremonies like that without unity? Conventionally, only poor people married 2-10 couples at a time; well-to-do and respected people do not get married in numbers of two or three thousand couples. We are the first ones to do that. What better way can unity be proven?
To marry even one Korean with a Japanese would be difficult. But Father made 2500 couples like that overnight! There were not just couples with a Japanese husband and Korean wife, but the more difficult couples of Korean husbands with Japanese wives. Many people wondered what historical resentment was going to surface in these couples. But when the Korean people knew that Father was behind it, they knew there would be good results. They didn’t worry about it because they know that Father loves Korea and would never do anything detrimental to the Korean people. Japan also knows how much Father loves the Japanese people. The same is true here in America. Now, when American people comment on our weddings, they say, “Rev. Moon wisely matched and married them!”
In the Cultural Olympics, Father is planning to bless thousands of couples at one time. The only prerequisite will be 40-day training. Whoever wants to be blessed after 40-day training will come and receive it. This is one blessing where the couple will not separate eternally. If you are a serious person, then you would know how difficult it is to get married nowadays to the right mate. You are lucky you didn’t have to go through that!
That’s actually the number one recognition about Father around the world, isn’t it? He is the world’s biggest, safest, most guaranteed matchmaker. That’s Father’s first title. We are not proud enough of our Blessing. There will be a day very soon where we will proclaim ourselves to the whole world saying, “We are a couple blessed by Rev. Moon.”
If you are ever going to study China, Korea, Japan or any Far Eastern country, you cannot learn through the limitations of the English language. But through the Korean language, you can learn everything anywhere. If you learn Korean, you can learn Japanese and Chinese very quickly after that. If you learn Chinese characters, you can communicate with half the people in the Orient through writing. It’s very complicated and a lot of headache too; you’ll end up wishing that the Orient language never existed. But think about the bright side of it: Without the Oriental language and Oriental race, Father would never have emerged. The problems of the world would never have been solved.
How could you summarize what the universe, God, and the history mankind are all about within an hour as Father has done? We can do it now because Father has taught us. Is there any encyclopedia or literature that we can find in the library for such solutions? Divine Principle is the king of all knowledge. Without it, knowledge could never be organized, because we don’t understand God. Sin confuses everything. There’s no clear theory about God or the purpose of man.
Maybe you didn’t go to an ivy league college, but were in the Unification Church instead for 10 years. In those 10 years, you learned 100 times more than those scholars. For example: One person who was educated at Harvard was working for the Media Research Institute of Georgetown University in Washington, DC. He was the chairman of the Political Research Center. Everyone recognized him as an expert when he joined The World & and I. In the beginning he thought he was the center, because he is intelligent; he was quickly awestruck. Now he is very humble. He thought the Unification Church and The World & and I were nothing. At first, he didn’t recognize the value of our members and looked at them as having no credentials with little, if any, educational background. Soon he found that all of the members are very learned people because of the Principle.
All the scholars of the world thought Rev. Moon was someone lower than they, but they were caught by surprise. Do you understand who we are? We are a very capable church, with a very capable leader. No one understands Father. If Christianity in America and Korea had recognized and embraced Father, what could have happened? Father would have been known all around the world and the world’s problems would have been solved years ago. In that sense, how much the world has lost! How much damage has been done to the world for not recognizing my value? But the world waited until things could not get any worse before they embraced Rev. Moon. Fifty years have been wasted! If I did not know God’s Will I would never have had anything to do with America and surely America would have perished. But America was selected as the archangel country. Then I did everything I could for this country. The result of my efforts is why we are blossoming today. Now that I have spoken about this in detail, we American members can begin to understand who we are.
I know that America, Germany and Japan are historical enemies. After what the Japanese did to Korea, how could Father select them as the Eve country? “Love your enemy” is perhaps the only explanation that can be offered. Imagine if Christians fifty years ago had understood this as God’s Will and embraced Father? America, France and England would have formed the major dispensational nations of the archangel country, Eve country, Adam’s country, and so on. How much faster the world would have been restored with no opposition or sacrifice! I came to America to save and educate this country, but they opposed me. The French and English did the same thing. Why? Because of satanic influence.
The Japanese are historical enemies to Koreans, but Father claimed Japan, which is of much value to Satan. I made them even more valuable by putting them in the Eve country’s position. Following this, Japan had to be perfected. Most of the core elder members of Japanese church came from deeply religious backgrounds. Mr. Kamiyama’s father is a Christian minister, which is very rare in Japan. Mr. Oyamada was trying to be a minister by himself. So Father selected these people and put his own ministers in Japan. Many of you have not heard Mr. Kuboki’s testimony of how he came to join the church in the beginning so many years ago. Heaven intervened directly and told him, “Give up your membership in your present religious group.” He was about to be made an heir to that church’s leadership. He obeyed and came to the Unification Church. Mr. Furuta also came from a big, prestigious religious organization. He was their hope, but he was told by God to come to the Unification Church. Spirit world went into full swing to bring all these people to the church.
When Father sent out the world missionaries in 1975, he made trinities of missionaries from three countries–Japan, Germany and America–to indemnify the loss of America, England and France after World War II. It would have been ideal if these countries had inherited God’s Will. Japan represented Eve, America represented Abel and Germany represented Cain. Those three combined indemnified the various positions that had been lost. Father brought the three major dispensational countries that had been lost to Satan’s side back to the heavenly side.
The following is human history in a nutshell. Because of the Fall, Adam and Eve gave birth to Cain and Abel; they are symbols of the fall. This created a pattern that expanded throughout history. At the onset of World War II, England was in Eve’s position, France was in Cain’s position, America was in Abel’s position. Opposing them was Japan in the Eve’s position, Germany in the Cain position with Italy completing the trinity. When the Allies won over the satanic side, they should have come to Adam’s nation, God’s nation. As a result of the Fall, both Adam and God’s position were lost. Before I came, there was no Adam nation. How can we find the original Adam who was lost here? Prepared nations on God’s side should have connected with Adam, making unity of the four nations. As a result, the whole earth could have united into one. The establishment of God’s nation would have followed. This was the grand plan for restoration.
History went through this very course. The year 1945 was so crucial after the victory of World War II; these Eve, Cain and Abel nations should have searched for the Adam nation. Japan had occupied Korea for 40 years as an indemnity condition. Satan knew God had been preparing this project for so many years so wanted to destroy the Adam country. If these two countries had united, that would have been the end of restoration. But this did not happen, so Father selected Japan as Eve’s nation, America as Abel’s nation and Germany as Cain’s nation. My 40-year indemnity course consisted of selecting these enemy countries and embracing them. They should have been happy but they continued to rebel; so Father had to overcome them with love. This took forty years.
If the enemy countries of Japan, Germany and America were not selected, then I would not have received such opposition. They why did I do it this way? Because God lost this foundation, then I had to restore it back to God as a condition to recreate what was lost. By these countries uniting with Korea the world would be in God’s hands.
Why did Father bring people from every country, especially those from Germany and Japan, to America? America is where God lost everything, so Father wanted to gain everything back through this country. Everyone involved opposed Rev. Moon because they already belonged to Satan. So Father rearranged everything in America according to God’s direction. He brought it all together in this particular pattern to replace the Christian foundation. Father did that through the Unification Church. We brought 7000 Christian ministers to Korea to restore and revive Christianity. Some 40,000 members were educated in America to replace the lost foundation of Christianity. Because Satan interfered with restoration history and didn’t allow events to happen like they should, Father created what was needed with his own hands. Only through the dispensation can American people begin to understand what Rev. Moon did.
If no one was able to determine if Rev. Moon and the Unification Church were good or not, why do so many people oppose him? Because Satan got hold of everything, Father was alone. There was no one who took God’s side except Rev. Moon.
The Korean people opposed Rev. Moon because the Korean ministers listened to American ministers in their denominations who told them Father was a heretic. Then Father had to come to this country to restore everything that God had lost. After much pain, Father finally restored this foundation and brought it to Korea and Asia. America and Asia are now connected, and we’re getting close to the establishment of God’s nation.
The 1988 Korean Olympic Games were so meaningful. From the external point of view, so many young people who participated represented Satan’s champions of the second generation. They were healthy physically; but Father brought them spiritual health as well. The missionaries of 120 countries represented God’s second generation. God and Satan chose one place where 120 nations were present at the same time; God’s second generation carried gifts to them and clearly connected them with the Unification Church everywhere by helping and embracing their nation’s champions wherever they could in Korea. Only one leader emerged above all others: Rev. Moon. Even the Soviet Union listened to me and returned their thanks to me by giving me a medal. All things like that make a condition of indemnity. They were turned around completely. Now you understand that my coming to the United States made many conditions for victory over Satan’s side.
The second generation of more than 2000 couples on God’s side completely opened the national foundation. The Korean/Japanese couples, centering on God and True Parents, will produce a new blood lineage based upon their country’s foundation. With the creation of that kind of foundation, Satan cannot invade any national foundation, cannot attack the Unification Church or Rev. Moon who is standing on the nation’s foundation. In other words, Father restored the foundation for God’s nation through this Adam country/Eve country marriage foundation. Satan cannot accuse that kind of foundation in his world; he will have to bow down. With that kind of foundation made in Korea, Satan’s world of communism will have to bow down. So China will have to meet with me and eventually will follow and dedicate itself. This is the Principle. No matter how Satan’s communist world sends its power, it cannot invade, kidnap or infiltrate those representing God’s side.
You have to know in this time of accomplishment that Satan’s accusation is gone. Why? Because I made this national level Adam and Eve marriage foundation. With that kind of foundation established, Satan automatically must follow the foundation for the original world. Satan’s forces will automatically crumble. At that point, Adam and Eve together with Abel and Cain will combine into one. Through that, America will live.
Rev. Moon represented God’s side and helped the spiritual fortune of the United States. This foundation will provide the way of salvation for the United States. This is the Principle, not Father’s words. This is the formula course. The way of indemnity is a universal iron law. When the English tried to control the Chinese, they introduced them to opium. This intentional act of creating drug addiction is the root of the indemnity of widespread drug addiction in the Western world today. So, no matter what wrong action has been committed in the past, unless indemnity is paid, there can be no peace anywhere in the world.
Father selected Japan, America and Germany as primary nations, yet all of them came against Father. What about France and England who were also to serve as God’s foundation? They too opposed me. Seven countries came against me so I had to re-indemnify. God knew the foundations he wanted by winning World War II, but all of them were lost. The 40 years of indemnity that Father had to endure was due primarily to the failure of America, Japan, England and France. When Father chose Japan to be in Eve’s position on God’s side, how blessed was that country? When Germany was chosen for God’s side, how blessed was this country? Then Father chose America. From the perspective of the providential viewpoint, at anytime in history has God chosen a man or country a second time? NO! Rev. Moon, as God’s child, can do that. Why? Because Father set up a salvation situation where he could save these countries twice if it was needed. When Father chose America, he took responsibility to restore this nation to God’s original point. Left alone, you Americans didn’t understand enough to save your nation.
Before Father left for Korea last November, there was an American leaders conference. This country’s people, who had been Father’s enemy, gathered in one place to dedicate themselves to Father’s work. They were sent out from the highest level. This many kinds of people or leaders Satan cannot control; he can only contact them through Rev. Moon. There is absolutely only one way now! You have a unique position that is completely separated from Satan’s claim. You have to know this in the future in your position as leaders. How can you take on the future? We are getting low on leaders. Most important mission at this time is America’s providential mission. How carefully have you lived your life on this earth? How often did you receive painful persecution for God’s sake? How well do you know that path? Are you forgetting it? In the future, God’s nation will issue some kind of ticket based on your active training. We will check it, then if found wanting you will be given some kind of active time.
During this important time, Father has been fighting a most serious war on the front line. But the question God will ask you is, “How much did you help Father?” It was agonizing because you didn’t even know Father’s situation. Every area was blocked and he had to find out how to open each door. You didn’t know how difficult Father’s situation was. Father found the way to turn the whole thing around.
There was one previous time in history that this kind of foundation was made. It was in Moses’ time! How will you react when you receive incredible persecution? Salvation was disappearing in this world until Father took responsibility for the past. Jesus took the way of the cross in order to guarantee a point of salvation for mankind. You as a leader must take responsibility in the same kind of serious was as did Moses, Jesus and Father.
The first time you heard Father’s words, you couldn’t understand much. Missionaries from Japan, America and Germany, representing the second generation, united for God’s side, and made the condition for the future salvation of the world. How blessed is that activity. That was the deepest purpose of Father choosing representatives from three enemy countries to send out as missionaries. At the time, people thought I was wrong. Think about it: three enemy nations who cannot unite, how can that save America, France, England, the Free World or anything? Now they understand Father’s words. You are in the same situation as Father was. People will hit their bosom and cry out, “How foolish I was for not listening!” They will realize, “There is no solution.” Only Father’s forgiveness will give salvation.
It is at this point in time that I have given the tribal messiahship. Father has known the way for a long time when you didn’t have any idea of this concept. How much blessing is tribal messiahship? During Jesus’ time, John the Baptist was a tribal messiah, as was Zachariah. Together they represented the unity of Joshua’s tribe which would have opened the way for Jesus to marry. But the Israelites couldn’t accomplish such a united tribe.
By sending out three nations centering on Father, there was a four position foundation sent to every country in the world. No nation can accuse or persecute us. I was creating a worldwide foundation. I was taking the Adam’s position, but mankind decided that it was a mistake to follow me. God and Father knew that; so Father repeated the process. Who else could take this mission? Only God and True Parents. Children in the fallen world have Satan’s blood. Individualism can’t remove it. You must realize your position. The second generation or is making the indemnity payment for everything. Everything has been cleared up and given to you in your tribal messiah mission. Tribal messiahship means true parentship. True Parents did it just like that and their lives will bear witness in their children. When Father sent out 21,000 blessed couples as tribal messiahs all over the world, they had to overcome the attitude, “Father I cannot be sent out.” Father cannot recognize such an attitude publicly.
You have to all be brothers united centering on True Parents. You must be strong about that. In the beginning, Unification members said to me, “Father, you are the parent; why don’t you do it?” So pitiful for Father! Even the 36 Couples didn’t know that. Father made a wide victorious foundation. In the future, people will feel so much happiness. Father wanted to completely pay the necessary indemnity. Now, Unification members can go anywhere and not be accused. Please show some guts in whatever you are doing and always ask God. By standing in that central position your opposition will immediately crumble and heaven will open up. This is a powerful philosophy.
Korea opposed Reverend Moon, but in the actual showdown, who won? Father won over every nation that came against him. Rev. Moon is gaining influence all over the world. Looking back, the providential viewpoint is so clear. God and Rev. Moon saw that.
After what Father has done, where do you stand in comparison? During this time, it is your turn. How can we win when you don’t have the result or even the effort. So I’m telling you now that you have a short time to make more tangible results. To do that, you have to create more activity. Otherwise, it will be a miserable situation. Originally, Father took the same position to God’s foundation in the four corners of the world. From now until 1992, you have to make good result. Can you do that?
Now, no one opposes us seriously. This is why Father proclaimed the Cultural Olympics. Cultural unity is so important for world unity to be fulfilled. Imagine so many people from different countries coming together to get married at the same time! Those who come from a certain village and marry in Seoul at the World Cultural Olympics, will go back and report to their village what they experienced. How excited the people will be.
Do you understand what Father is saying? If people had recognized Father earlier and then you were sent out as tribal messiah, your position would have been quickly recognized. However, that God’s foundation is coming into place now . On that foundation, you are now working as a tribal messiah. At the time of World War II, God’s nation lost that foundation which we are now restoring centering on Father. It was Father who received the focus of all the persecution.
For 40 years, Father has made the conditions to restore these nations to God’s sovereignty. He has single handedly fulfilled the responsibility for this task in place of the national leaders of these countries. That is God’s principled viewpoint of messiahship.
America didn’t know that at the time, only God, Rev. Moon and Satan knew. Why did the democratic world come against the Unification Church without researching our doctrine? They completely denied us. That was Satan’s work again. No matter how strong a net Rev. Moon tried to make, Satan would cause people to fall out. Rev. Moon made a net of double strength, but Satan tore it down, not only in this world but in the spiritual world, too.
Now, good ancestral spirit men can come down at anytime. They represent the archangel’s side.
The archangelic world saw the first Fall caused by the worst archangel. Now good archangels are on this earth helping Adam’s family, tribe, nation, and world. That is the archangelic world’s mission. Satan cannot accuse if all your good ancestors come down to stand behind you–behind YOU! I am holding the gate open to the only clear way of following the Principle. You have to take your training course on the track that Father made.
The spirit world is ready and eager to help you. Just like when Adam spoke, everything was carried out just as he had said. We should have that kind of feeling now. Adam spoke and spirit world carried out his directions. We must have the same confidence as the original Adam.
The time of Cain and Abel struggle is gone; brothers won’t fight each other now, for they are looking for parents. The tribal messiah’s role is to connect them to the parents. During the brothers’ time there is war and conflict; but during the parents’ time there is only peace. Even if there is scattered conflict, it doesn’t affect your work.
No one opposes us today, especially when they understand what Rev. Moon is doing. What will happen now? All will seek God’s nation and we will guide them to that with Satan playing the role of a witness to you. With brotherism, Satan can oppose because he has so much claim on them. But not when it comes to parentism.
There is only one way leading to victory. All you need to do is to inherit Father’s tradition. Father put all of his heart into this mission, absolutely confident that it would work. Likewise, we have to do that.
Now you look back and are in a good position to understand me, although when I initially spoke about these things, you couldn’t understand me.
40 years ago I had the determination to make all enemy countries become peaceful brothers. Now it has been achieved. Do you think Father speaks and just hopes that somehow it will happen? No! I am a realistic person and worked towards this end. Please go back and read Father’s words: everything is there. The discrepancy is only that we listened and then forgot.
Are we proud of all that Father has done without any help? Yes! So we should not dishonor Father’s achievements. Preserve your own dignity by upholding Father’s victorious foundation. How about our situation? It is a blessing we didn’t expect. We don’t deserve it, but we have it. We are saved, but we have to deserve that salvation. Even if we don’t do anything, Father may save us. But how miserable such a situation will be when we reach the spirit world.
So what is the surest way to be sure to deserve our blessings? Be victorious in tribal messiahship. We are in a better position than Jesus. It is as if Zachariah’s and Joseph’s family were in peace at Jesus’ time. We could get blessed and can now achieve all aspects of the dispensation. That’s the foundation we are given to stand on through the tribal messiahship.
The dispensational time has really changed. Cain and Abel relationship that is repeated time and time again in history. But after the Parents have emerged that pattern will never repeat itself. All we must do is to have faith and carry on. If we really become really serious with absolute confidence in this historical foundation, and do the tribal messiahship, the world will come into one.
This is the last command that God can concretely give concretely to mankind. If you do this, you will achieve the goal. After that, God will not have to issue another commandment.
I am quietly a parent to everything. Parentship means not complaining, no matter what is going on. This is Father’s teaching. Follow that absolutely righteous way.
Where the vertical and horizontal connect is the central point of God and True Parents’ dwelling place. Father has emphasized this many times. The vertical parent is God and the horizontal parent is True Parents. This is parentship! God and True Parents’ desires are the same. Following this way leads to prosperity. Following the way of parentship will create the embodiment of all levels of love: individual, family, tribal love. Following the way of parentship is the only way of building that concept of love into a system of perfection. No matter how hard you search, this is the truth. The principled way is the foundation that you must stand on. There are no exceptions. Father followed that same path; he invested his whole life to this way. You have to follow Father’s steps. You cannot take a different way, for this is a marching time and you must follow me. You have to know that.
Step on that path and stay on it forever. Educate your children about the Principle–you haven’t been doing that. A thousand generations of your ancestors must go the same way and a thousand generations of your descendants too. There is only one Principled viewpoint. You cannot arrive at this viewpoint by simply talking with each other. Father received all the persecution, in place of God. Even God is walking the same path.
That is what the tribal messiah is all about. Father has gone through that same position and made it successful. On that foundation Father is trying to bequeath it to you. Your original mind will help so that you automatically feel like parents to your tribe. You will be able to take care of them with a parent’s heart and mind. But you don’t have to wait for your original mind to wake up–it may take a long time. Father is trying to do is to tell us everything our position, what we can expect, and how to do it. Father is teaching us everything and placing us in a victorious position.
How amazing that the situation has changed even from the last time Father spoke of tribal messiahship. Until now, we had to pray to God and get the answer. Sometimes it is very difficult to get an answer. But now all we have to do is live the principled life and report.
You have to become a true man. What is it that Father needs to teach you? You lost your parents and now you’ve found them; you found your brothers and sisters and even found your true tribe. Father taught us everything, yet still in the corner of our mind something is lacking. That feeling has no place. Father gave you a spouse, and the best one at that. What else are we waiting for? We have everything.
Father is giving this priceless gift to us free with only the condition to not dishonor my tradition. Father is talking about the universal True Parents’ tradition. Don’t dishonor them by committing a wrong action. If you have questions you can ask them sometime to Father during a question and answer period. You will automatically lead a spiritual life.
According to how many tribal members we have, registration will take place. We have to belong to one of the twelve tribes and that will be determined at that time. The world will be divided into 12 tribes and we should belong to one of these 12 tribes, which are the same as spirit world’s 12 pearly gates. This is a pre-registration time; we are qualifying now. We should qualify while Father is alive on earth. You must have strong guts. You must know you are standing on the True Parents’ firm foundation and not even wobble.
When I left Korea for America, I told all Korean members that Korea will undergo a lot of complications, but Unification Church members shouldn’t worry about it, because our position is firm. That’s what’s happening now and our members are so confident. We should be confident here too. Whatever happens in the world or America, we should not even vibrate.
Each individual should make a 40 day prayer condition, skipping one meal a day (It doesn’t matter which meal is skipped). Pray to make a new church of this Unification Church.
We went together with Father through an indemnity course, trying to do something for the sake of other people. When it comes to this tribal messiah it is directly for yourself rather than for anyone else. Previously whatever you gained was like a war trophy, but now we are about to go into direct ownership. You are able to accomplish this upon the tradition of love, parent’s love. The parental love which you exercise will gain results for not only your family, but the tribe of your people. Together we are going to Heaven.
Until July 15th, you should pray to understand everything Father has said, even if you have to refer back to Father’s words over the last few days. We must remember all that Father has taught us recently. Do not be conceptual about it, but make it completely your own. Be realistic and practical about it! For 40 days pray to completely change yourself and our church!
You should pray and study until your relatives and family members think you are actually crazy. You can learn so much at this time on how to make expenses and living your life to nourish your tribal members as their messiah. “Messiah” is a saver. Father suggested you pray like this: “I am completely new at standing in the center of savior situation. Help me, for we don’t have the money we need for a living foundation. How can I make this foundation?”
Take this 40 day period and 7 days after the end of the 40 days, you will solve this problem anywhere. No problem you can do it. Follow my word for 7 days, that’s all. After that, you cannot complain to me and they will be thankful for their tribal messiah.
This is much the same situation as when Jesus ascended into heaven 40 days after he resurrected. During these 40 days we pray hard to come back to the original position with a prepared foundation.
I. Reassessing or checking the leaders.
Until now anybody could be put into a leadership position. But this time we have to question the qualifications of a leader. It has been a wartime situation in the past and during wartime anything can happen. But now we need a peacetime system. So we should reassess our leaders to see if they are qualified.
II. Everyone, including the leaders, must go through 40-day training.
How about all of you? Is there anyone here who did not go through 40-day training in the church? Rev. Ahn is doing 40-day training. Those who did not go to 40-day training under Rev. Ahn raise your hands. Please stand up. You should schedule yourself to go through that course, the sooner the better. AFC leaders should also go through 40-day training; it’s good for you. And Father knows it is difficult for you to have someone substitute for you; but that’s why you should have trained someone already.
Rev. Ahn teaches well. The harder the training, the better it is for you. Easy training doesn’t mean anything. After receiving 40-day training, you will be able to teach people back in your own home town. Father’s purpose in doing this is to make you great messiahs.
Actually Father admires American members because they are so docile. Father at times would rebel against something that you do not. You are a gentle and good people. You should be good not only in heart, but you should also fulfill your promise. In other words, don’t just be agreeable and then not keep your promises; he would rather have you disagree but do it.
III. Selecting a qualified lecturer.
That means you have to listen to them giving a lecture to determine whether they are a good lecturer or not. If they are good, then they are selected.
IV. How to train and give good influence to members through good sermons .
This means we have to give many instructive lectures to influence them. The best reference material for that is Father’s words. You can pick any topic from the vast numbers of pages of Father’s words and you can start to write.
Father is a religious leader and as such, Father has given a sermon literally every Sunday and Holy Day. Mother often says, “Father, considering your age, please try to speak less.” But Father couldn’t help it because he had so many things to teach you. You obviously didn’t get everything and Father doesn’t want to leave anything undone so later you won’t say, “Father why didn’t you leave that behind?” This is an expression of Father’s conscientious preaching within all his sermons. Father wants to speak as much as possible, covering as many topics as possible. So naturally the sermon becomes longer. Father can average everything in 5 minutes or 30 minutes. It would be easier. But three hours is much better for us to remember than 30 minutes. If you want 30 minute instruction, you need to read the Divine Principle, not listen to Father’s sermon. Father’s sermon paraphrases and amplifies these principles for only then do we begin to understand the Divine Principle. We cannot fully understand the Divine Principle just by reading it.
The secret of a good sermon is to pray for more than three times the length of your speaking time. The more we pray, the more influence and impact that lecture carries. People will be moved to tears, depending on how much we pray.
V. The morning service attendee and making it an extension of life.
In other words, we often attend morning service, pray, listen to a sermon, and then go back to our “normal” life. This is incorrect because our normal life should be an extension of morning service allowing no difference to exist. We should be no different in what we say and the way we live.
Like a good lecture, we should be able to give the sermon like a conversation or natural speech. If you are standing and see the birds, you ask them: “Where are you flying? Are you going to find your partner or are you hungry and want some food? If you fly to me, it is possible I can help you.” Or you may see the insects walking in a certain direction, “Why are walking there? Do you want to meet me or talk to me? What are you going to say?” In other words you don’t have to be formal when our sermon and our life are consistent with each other.
VI. Strengthening the combined economic activity.
The leader’s duty is to not only lead his tribe in daily life, but to be responsible for economic matters. We can start many things with only our imagination as our limit. We can bring all the family members together to fund raise in support of our activity. We have done many things which many members mistakenly thought were our tradition, such as the state leader making someone else go fund raising. Don’t do that! If we need to fund raise, then we do it with our brothers and sisters. When the Japanese members first came, many state leaders made the Japanese members fund raise to support the church. We shouldn’t do that, for fund raising is the state leader’s responsibility. Father earns money, but then he shows us how to support our activity.
Look at the mistake of ministers in the Christian church–they don’t know how to make money so they are at the mercy of the congregation. Sometimes the congregation will actually chase away the ecclesiastic person. No matter how great a religious leader you may be, if you lack the ability to make money, then you won’t have power or authority. You have to really go out of your way to earn money, because it is not easy. Father will make you a great religious leader who can also earn money.
There is big money to be made in boat fishing, long-line fishing. The line can extend 40 miles. You think about the purpose of that one line. Sometimes it shocks people by how many fish it catches. How excited people get!
Sometimes the sea is calm like the glass of a mirror. It is very mysterious when looking at the huge ocean. One time there can be a roaring wave, as tall as a mountain visiting you: “Hello, how are you?” But when the sea is calm, the world appears to be totally flat. You may prefer that kind of wave or viewpoint, but I don’t like that kind of world. I like to talk with the tall wave that is visiting me. It is wonderful to see how high the waves are when I look around. There are always waves that are still higher, making me appear so small. The wave says: “How much guts you have, man. I admire you. God bless you.” How wonderful it is to ride such a wave, swim in such a wave, or fish in it.
Fishing can change all of your old concepts, including the way you think. Father has ridden in his boat for 9 or 10 years catching tuna. You were always encouraged to participate in Father’s sea-going adventures. Haven’t you had many such experiences of catching tuna? Your future generations will be very proud of you when they see a picture of you catching tuna with Father. They will admire you and feel indebted to you. Especially when they see a wave hit the boat, making it surge upward into a roaring wave, while you were with Father fishing. How precious that picture will be! You cannot buy such a precious gift or more hopeful position. How wonderful that will be for your descendants, how much they will admire and envy your position.
Remember when Father was going out on the Hudson River, catching striped bass in April. In the future, many students will come there. Someday, after many years have past, students will visit you because you were catching bass with Father on the Hudson River.
What do the fish think about as they swim under the water? When Father is pulling fish out of the water onto the boat, they want to jump out of the water to come with me. “I am so miserable can you save me?” Father thinks, “But God gave you to me for eating. Is that great thing or sad one?” The fish answers, “I know that is a great thing, but I am worried about my blood bursting out, that’s not so good.”
You can talk to any life form whether it is small like a pinpoint or big and noisy. Like the fish who are constantly talking to each other and making friends in the world. They’ll gather in one place and talk about what other fish are saying. Fish hear a sound and will say: “Yea, those on the boat are making that problem. The fish cry out.”
Through sharing, emotional world and spiritual world can connect everywhere. United Nations represents the four global directions, but they are not linked in one direction. If a man’s mind could unite with a wide, spiritual path from a high level in the spiritual world giving it one direction. By man standing firm in this one place of access how happy the spiritual world would be. An example of this is Jesus who is not dead, but still works in everyone’s heart. That is the most effective way.
When I ride on the boat, I have the fisherman’s world, king-size imagination. Every day on board, I was cultivating a formula to work everywhere we planted the seed. How can it work? I knew what kind of soil was good for which kind of grain.
The “ridge” is an imaginary, connecting line on top of a mountain range. That kind of center or ridge happens in all worlds of life: fish world, flower world, business world, industrial world, and the artists’ world.
For example, Father created The Washington Times –layout, production–to break into every aspect of the media world. We continued that for 5 years until we inherited all of their merit as determined by the vertical world. How did he do it? Father experimented with a variety of ways. He visited there many times.
Father described a process of earning the trust of the shipyard captains to learn all they know. Eventually they will want to work for you in your shipyard. That is the natural way.
Use valuable time wisely. When you visit the mayor or the state governor, don’t take a prideful position to them. Instead treat them as if their position was similar to yours, like an elder brother. No matter how serious the situation you can say, “I like you as my brother. I would like to take you to lunch.” Invite him to a great Chinese restaurant. “You don’t have the money? Well, use public money and pay back later.” Why not? For God’s purpose you are trying to accomplish this relationship.
How can you settle in one place? Using your creative imagination, you can never be stopped for very long. By following that direction you can find a way out of any difficulty.
So when I am fishing, I am also thinking. Beginning in Korea, following the Itinerary Workers to 40 countries. I think about the past at a particular time, of what was good or what was bad. Sometimes I calculate all the right things that have happened. I can remember the first time I visited a certain place, how many members were there, what kind of member they were at that time, and what has happened to them since then. Did they disappear or are they in a center somewhere?
How about our present situation–are we going up or down? How high have we gone? Where will we end up? Check yourself clearly. They are studying you in spiritual world most deeply, concentrating on thinking/imagination world.
Think about how difficult Father’s way has been throughout his life; but how young I look. Don’t you think so? My mind is always thinking, leading the providence through the spiritual world. Following that, my spirit says, “Make more action, more strength, and move faster.” When Father is riding the boat, reporting everyday why he did that, why he needs that, he is often sitting for 12-15 hours at a time with no problem. He doesn’t take a nap or sleep, but tirelessly watches the sea for that special fish.
Once Mr. Kamiyama was checking the fish, but after all day on the boat, his body situation was miserable. Father mentioned that fact to him, and Mr. Kamiyama asked, “How can you know that Father?” “Because God is looking down at you and spiritual world is taking a moving picture where all the Kamiyama phenomena appears. How can you deny it? I know for I live with the same situation.” If Rev. Moon does something, it is immediately known in the spiritual world. How wonderful to have that kind of help while working towards restoration! Stretch your imagination is what Father is saying.
VII. We should create a social leadership system.
We should not stop our life of faith work on the individual, family or church level. We should exert influence to lead the society into our life of faith by creating a social leadership system. We should develop the church into a system through which we can easily lead society into God’s desired direction. Making the church into this type of social leadership system, will help our church function as an efficient system to achieve our goal of leading the world back to God.
VIII. Tribal messiah and the Tradition of True Parents.
After Moonie, Sunnie, and whatever comes after that, where will we move? “Kingie.” “Kingie” is messiahship. Messiahship means parentship. King means the representative of the spiritual center of all nations. Think how hard Father is working to make that kind of messiahship or kingship. You are only now hearing this, never before. Good troublemaker. Everywhere Father was, made trouble. In some remote area that parents visited, they stayed one night and immediately there was trouble in that place. People would complain, “Last night some stranger visited us and made some kind of bad phenomenon. We had to chase him out.” The village leaders gathered to say, “Since you have come to our village, bad things have happened. You must leave.” I have heard that many times. I made trouble everywhere, even in the United States.
IX. National Central Figures
In other words, what we are trying to express is national leadership type of people. What is our ultimate goal by becoming a tribal messiah? Our ultimate goal lies in the nation that we have to save. We need a national central figure. First we have to train such a leader; then after training them, we have to build an organization centering on them. Making that kind of foundation will automatically connect with the national purpose.
X. Training for World Coalition.
Father will apply a similar AFC activity from America to the whole world. We will bring them and train them in AFC, this will include sending them behind the Iron Curtain and Bamboo Curtain. They will train in an unlimited scope of activity.
Sometimes you may see a hard working Unification Church member immediately disappear as if he dropped out of the U.C. and came against us. Later, this same person will suddenly reappear in front of you. You will ask him: “Where have you been? How many years since we last saw each other?” He will answer: “Seven years. I stayed at my home.” But they, just like Father, were always there working underground. I have sent out many people like this. Why must we work in this way? It is the only way to save and liberate God. Some of those members have passed into the spirit world: “I go to the spirit world now; I have responsibility for your life. I will lead you to a higher level.” Some are waiting there for Father’s coming. I have never reported such things to you. This is sad reporting that cannot be said so openly. Only Father knew that. How serious Father’s situation was at the time.
Why are we making such an expanding organization? We have to save the most precious, most valuable whole world. Father opened this foundation to work with top level leaders.
There’s a boat with a giant net about 2000 meters long and 100 meters deep. It needs 100 persons working on board. Father would like to train you on that boat for one whole summer with no salary for working.
I trained well in very difficult circumstances. There is no situation that Father has not imagined and no training that Father didn’t go through following that imagination. There is no tall tree in Father’s neighborhood that Father didn’t climb. He would always challenge himself to climb every tall tree. One day he went after a favorite bird which nests in a big, very tall tree whose branches are very soft. Even at that time Father was a rather heavy child and would go climbing. Father’s mother spent her life worrying about Father every day because that’s Father.
When a big snake would appear in the village, everyone was kind of shaken and said, “Someone should catch that”. It was always Father who caught it and dangled it by it’s tail. Father discovered that a snake can never reach its tail with its mouth. The extent of its reach is only two-thirds of its own length. So he knew his hand was always safe.
There’s nothing that Father didn’t do. We should do that before we can feel the same as Father. Father makes good strategies and good tactics because he trained well everywhere and can do anything. So automatically Father could become a famous leader. Father is a great leader because Father did that.
Now what should Father do? Maybe we just better wait two more hours then eat dinner.
FR: That is the more convenient way. I like that, how about you?
Actually in this kind of conference, Father should receive reports. Until now, Father didn’t get any report. To get all the reports how much time it would take–how many hours. Then after reporting, we will have dinner. Or should we go right to dinner and skip the reports. (laughter) Father is asking. FR: Father is asking means we are taking the democratic way.
TR: During the last one and half years, Father has been decreasing the budget for you. Please select one representative from among yourselves to come in front of the brothers and sisters to report how you are doing and how you managed to run your own organization. Please give Father and all of us an overall report of what you expected when Father told us about AFC and what did you find on the way while doing the activity, and what is your perspective as of this moment, how hopeful is it for the future of America–a comprehensive report. It doesn’t have to be long, but comprehensive.
Like Father, let’s dress this way: putting on necktie. Dress formally–that’s nuisance. (Loud applause) From now on you have permission to come before Father this way. New dress code for summertime. This is the most economical way of dressing. FR: Wearing is most convenient way, feeling is very convenient. Easy to wash and very inexpensive. How much saving there is? Suit dealers will oppose us because we aren’t giving them any business. And if we need suits, we can easily put a jacket on top of the shirts. (Thank you Father).
FR: Everyone can be grateful for the CAUSA movement’s conferences where they teach very well, educating the participants and connecting them to this one direction way, effective way. Is that true? Let’s give a big hand to Tom Ward. I have received many reports that the San Diego conference was well done, well done and very effective. You have to make another conference of 450 people–all the great American leaders–turn them around and make one direction. How amazing our behind the scene activity will be! Don’t you think so? We are making a second revolution in the United States. A new country was born here, coming.
TR: So there are all kinds of response because we are stirring up the country. Some politicians really hate us or hate Father because it’s not according to his principle; but others really fear Father; while still others really love Father. This group says this is the only way to set the country straight.
FR: Our members really loving Father, American leaders behind them, and behind them the Free World. That is good phenomenon or bad? Good and effective! Through this way, good leaders can control the youth. They have power and they have money. I needed to use that kind of power and money. There was only one way–through teaching and educating these leaders. Then no problem.
TR: Now American leaders came to understand that America can be loved; that they and we all can love and resurrect America. They are grateful for this to Rev. Moon. Personally they are grateful–American leaders. Now they really have the vision, thanks to Father.
FR: What do you think? Father’s making the AFC movement was good or bad? Good! It has done well or bad? Well! Our CAUSA movement? Great! You don’t know it, but behind the organization there are others.
TR: So the political activity, AFC is adequate to be the center. Education: it has been proven over and over again that CAUSA can do the job adequately. What about the money? Who should make money? Nobody proved that yet.
FR: Having a meeting is good. After that, collecting money and making an amount. After that, Happy World. (laughter) Otherwise, no happy world. We understand that.
TR: Father devised a plan for economic activity already–a plan that works. Through this organization and concept, Father has already set aside money, the leadership of economic activity can be ours. Let’s hear. If we all go along with him, we will make it a success. Let’s all join in listening to Mr. Joo.
