Those who are not United States citizens, raise your hands please. Now, US citizens, raise your hands please. Blessed couples raise your hands please. Those who have not received the Blessing, raise your hands please.
Do you know what the Blessing is? Do you know the word, “Blessing”? After all, the Blessing was supposed to be consummated through Adam and Eve. If there was no Fall of Adam and Eve, the blessing of God, given as heavenly matrimony, was to be conducted in the Garden of Eden. Because of the Fall, God has been waiting to make preparation for 4000 years until the time of Jesus Christ. Jesus came as the only son of God, but he was supposed to be elevated into the True Parents position. Then there would have been a Blessing conducted, officiated under the auspices of Jesus Christ. However, because of the crucifixion that was not possible. So for another 2000 years, the coming of the messiah, the second Christ, has been awaited by humanity. We live in the time, the first time in history that the Blessing is able to be given out. This is because of the consummate work of True Parents. You are the first crops or recipients of that Blessing.
So many people in between these times have married according to their own wishes and will. But that has not been recognized by God. His recognition can only go toward heavenly matrimony. God recognizes only the Blessing given by True Parents. That is the one recognized by God. We must know why the first Blessing that was to be held in the Garden of Eden was not fulfilled. The reason was because of the Fall of man. We then, the children of Adam and Eve, have all become the recipients of Satanic blood lineage instead of heavenly lineage. We became part of the Satanic lineage and generations. We have Satanic love, Satanic life and Satanic lineage. All fallen humankind received Satan’s blood lineage. This is the problem.
Many people commonly ask, “If there is a God, why couldn’t He save mankind in the first place?” They deny God thinking that there must not be a God, otherwise how could there be so much evil in our world? However, you know that restoration is nothing other than the restoration of God’s lineage and it is not simple work. It is not something that can be handled by a simple judgment. Therefore God has taken this much time to fulfill this dispensation.
The Fall of man was initiated by Satan, however, man voluntarily united with him and the Fall was consummated. For that reason, no individual here on Earth is able to get rid of their Satanic lineage themselves. Only some great happening, like the coming of the messiah can accomplish this job. Until the physician comes, restoration is not possible. In other words, God did not intend any Fall of man. God is not responsible for the Fall of man. Man is responsible because man is the one who cooperated, who volunteered to unite with Satan.
Adam and Eve, up until their teen age years before the Fall, had been growing up in absolute purity. But once they got mixed up with Satan and received Satanic blood and lineage, God without any hesitation or mercy chased them out of the garden. So you can see that God’s standard is very high. God can work only with a pure situation. If there is any mixture of good and evil, God cannot work. Today, no matter how pure some men and women may be, there is no comparison to the purity of Adam and Eve before the Fall of man. Even though we may live a pure life, we have already received the Satanic lineage and have it within ourselves without even knowing it. It was not our responsibility, but nevertheless we inherited that Satanic lineage. Adam and Eve, however, did not have that Satanic lineage from the very beginning, so no purity can be compared to Adam and Eve, before their Fall. God was so severe, His standard so pure and high, that when Adam and Eve, who were the purest people, committed sin just once, He kicked them out of the garden. Based on that do you think in restoration today that God should be very flexible, thinking, “Well, I can accept this much of a mixture of good and evil?” Do you think God can be more lenient, open or flexible? Do you think God’s standard should be compromised? What do you think? On the contrary, God has to be even more severe in securing His standard and purity today than in those first days of Adam and Eve.
Those Blessed couples who have children, please raise your hands. Do you have absolute confidence your children were conceived purely, born purely, brought up purely and that they absolutely far exceed Adam and Eve’s standard before their fall? Do you have that confidence? [No response except a few “No’s”] If you say “No”, doesn’t it mean that your children, brought up as they are, are not entitled to enter automatically into the Kingdom of Heaven? That is what you are saying because you answered that you’re not sure. Do you think that God’s standard procedure for entering the Kingdom of Heaven has been altered in the last 6000 years? Has God changed the rules and regulations or is God keeping only one same rule from day one until now? [One rule.]
There is a magnetic principle at work between the North Pole and the South Pole. It always works. There is a principled formula that the magnetic line obeys. By comparison is God’s rule much more stringent and absolute than the magnetic field or less so? [More] Why more? The magnetic field can change. Magnetic forces do not work out of the absolute point of the North Pole, but can be slightly off according to the source or other magnetic influences. However, the principle of God’s love and His rule is absolute. So you logically can accept that even the magnetic rule of physics can be changed, but the rule of God cannot be changed. The husband is like the North Pole and the wife is like the South Pole. Do you have this untiring faith between the two, and through that absolute true love have you conceived children and given them birth or have you been looking around, thinking about this and that? And in the meantime your first child was born, second child was born, third child was born while your mind has been moving around in so many different directions? Which do you think is true? Look at yourself, reflect on your own home. If you can say, “Without any doubt Father, I gave my child birth with untiring faith in God and True Parents and to my husband. Under that principle I gave my child birth,” with conviction, raise your hands please. [A few raise hands.] God is laughing at you. What a situation here. Are you pure? You are saying, “Yes, we are pure.” But have you thought about the fact that you are American? Have you ever thought that you have your physical parents, your mother and father? Have you thought about that or did you forget them? Have you ever thought about your past? You went to elementary school, junior high school, you had your high school days and college days, have you thought about all that past? How about the language you are using every day? Is it absolutely heavenly, pure language that you were learning and using continuously from the beginning? Or have you been speaking sloppy English that you picked up here and there with all kinds of curses and dirty jokes? Have you ever thought about your clothes, “These are not good enough for me because this material is not pure. It is from the satanic world with many different strings attached to it,” even though you may not see them with your eyes? Have you ever thought that in a way your clothes are spiritually filthy?
When going out to eat at McDonalds or a coffee shop, for example, have you ever thought “Well this is really not the food I deserve. I need something more pure, something kosher, heavenly, cleansed food. This is what I have to eat, but I am not quite happy with it.” Have you ever thought like that?
Have you ever thought about the air, “Not only am I breathing this air, but all kinds of satanic people, prostitutes, homosexuals, all kinds of incredible criminals are breathing it. I have to breathe the same air, but I wish I could close my nose and mouth and not have to breathe anymore.”
When you drink water have you considered that this water comes from the Hudson River and on that river there are all kinds of factories creating filth and pornographic things. You never know there may be secret drug factories, even waste coming into it! And you’re drinking it! You have to drink this water to survive, but if there was any way you could avoid it you would do so. Have you thought that way?
Think about the Garden of Eden. It was ecologically pure, the water was pure, the air was pure and Adam and Eve were pure. Everything was absolutely heavenly. Only then, by growing up in those circumstances under God’s rule of the Principle and True Love, would they enter into the Kingdom of Heaven. Now you think that in our environment, living the way other people live, that we are entitled to the same kingdom of heaven? Anyone who thinks so is a very crazy person. A few people raised their hands saying, “Yes Father, I feel I gave my child a pure birth.” But in a way, from God’s point of view, even though your mind might be so, the environment is not to the level for any of us to live a pure life.
Then when you are entitled to enter into the kingdom of heaven, suppose you enter, you must feel so ashamed thinking, “No, no, no, I’m not worthy to be here.” It’s almost as if everybody showed up with tuxedos and formal wear and you showed up at a banquet with just your naked body. How shameful you would feel! Using the comparison of arriving at a tuxedo party with only a naked body, imagine yourself arriving into the kingdom of heaven and the situation there. Do you think your distance from belonging to heaven is greater or narrower than the naked person belonging at the tuxedo party? What do you think? Which difference is greater, the tuxedo to the naked body or the kingdom of heaven to your own situation? Which distance is farther? [Our situation.] You must feel unworthy and shameful even to have received the Blessing. Furthermore, though you are heading up to the kingdom of heaven, you should feel unworthy of it. If what Father is saying is true, then you have nothing but shame. What can you do? Have you ever considered that your ears have been listening to all kinds of filthy things? Or that your mouth, your nose and all your five organs including your eyes have sinned a lot? Tremendous sin has been committed by this body. Not even all because of your own doing, but because of the environment and the Satanic life that society has developed. So you should feel, “Oh boy, I am certainly not deserving of heaven.” You’ll just want to turn around, almost like rejecting it and say, “I am sorry Father, I’m not worthy of heaven.” Have you ever thought about that?
What is the Fall of man? It was illicit love, false love. Is the action itself of illicit love and true love different or the same? The action is the same. When you move to the right it is eternal life, when you move to the left there is hellish life. In other words, what do we mean by the original right? It means the heavenly direction, the kingdom of heaven. On the right you are closer to the original state of mind, the original state of life and environment. In that particular environment you would be protected by the quality of original nature. Original nature is supposed to protect you and at the same time help you maintain the prepared situation. Your loving action must be approved by God first of all. The husband should guarantee that action is the righteous one. The wife must approve that action as the righteous act. That is the way it should be set up. Then Love itself should also approve your action. True Love will approve and say, “Yes, your action is True Love. I approve.” So when these four guarantees are around, your love action is justified and approved. When these four guarantees are granted no satanic power can deny it because these are the four most powerful endorsements that you have. Satan himself cannot deny your action. Neither can satanic man, satanic woman or satanic love deny your action.
Already this morning Father has given you enough guidance for you to evaluate and judge your Blessed life up to this time. You can see whether you have lived a righteous Blessing life or whether it has been illicit and filthy. The time has come for you to make your own judgment. The road of faith is always one of self-criticism and self-judgment. From time to time you look back and make a reflection on your own life. You need to constantly make mid-course corrections. That is a life of faithfulness. The important thing is to gain liberation for yourself from any kind of wrong doing. Do you follow? Therefore, all these are connected-the true lineage of God, the True Love of God and the true acceptance of God. All these have to be there for your Blessed life. Otherwise your Blessed life is superficial, a facade, existing in words only with no content. Your True Love palace, your life palace and lineage palace place is at the center of that True Love action.
The Fall of man was the destruction of these three palaces, which was the original palace. The highest place, this palace, was destroyed so entirely by the Fall that no heavenly life could be engaged. We have to restore it. We have to put the pieces back together to create the original palace. That is our everyday mission. Do you have that palace? Where is that palace? Is it external? Do you have to build a Taj Mahal somewhere?
Between men and women, what is the difference? Only one thing is different. It’s very simple, you know it. Men and women have different sexual organs. Your sexual organ is your love palace. It is not a filthy thing. That is your life palace and blood lineage palace. Is it true or not? Once this palace is destroyed, everything’ is broken. All three elements are destroyed. Think about what a great treasure God has given us. What a great palace God has built within us. Men and women need love. Where is love possible? Man’s love pole and woman’s love pole want to connect into one. That place is our life pole and love pole, isn’t it? Centering on love, man and woman mix and connect into one and make new life, new lineage, our children. That’s true! Why do parents love children? Because they are connected to their love line, life line and blood line. It cannot be cut. It extends from me. One is the origin and the other result. Combining and becoming absolutely one, love, life and lineage become a strong rope connecting everything. No matter how difficult things become I can never separate myself from this connection. Do you understand? When man and woman combine with this absolute true love, absolute true life and absolute true blood who could release this powerful unity? That place is exactly the true palace. It is the most valuable place. If you keep that place pure, everywhere you go, the whole universe will follow. God will automatically follow. That place is the most holy place. Are there two owners or only one owner of that place? One or two? [One.] Absolutely! Forever, only one! No matter how absolute a being God Himself is, even He cannot separate that kind of action. God obeys and follows that true love connection. So that kind of thing has the most value, why? Because even God is following it. This is the focal point of our value, where our human value and preciousness comes from. For Blessed couples especially, maintaining this heavenly love, life and heavenly lineage are of essential value.
Please answer Father frankly, is there anybody here who would be overjoyed to see their wife dancing with another man, just waltzing around and dancing around? Watching that, would you feel joy? [No!] What about women, if you see you husband holding another woman and going around, would you look at that and say, “Behold, this is a holy man!” Would you say that? [No!] Absolutely no! But you dance all the time, you change partners all the time. [No!] Sometimes you exchange wives. [No!] But sometimes there are wife exchanging parties going on outside. A group of couples go together and one night sleep with their wives, and the next night they swap their wives. They are really having great fun, aren’t they? [No!] It’s heavenly isn’t it? [No!] Who created that kind of tradition? Satan. In a way Satan is choking you and trying to cut your neck. He cuts off three things-love, life and heavenly lineage. Satan is trying to cut off these three most precious things. For those who live the American way of life, even to go to hell is too much for them. So even if they go to hell, they cannot go regularly, but must go upside down. Adam and Eve did only one mistake, and then God said, “No more! Get out!” He doesn’t want to see the fall. But how many times are American people repeating the Adam and Eve act over and over? Numerous times. So even to go to hell, they must go upside down with their heads down. You originally belonged to that generation, but Father lifted you up and put you into a different category entirely. But then you say, “I am still American. American culture and tradition is great.” Do you say that? [No!] America’s crime is very great because America is a leading nation of the world and they are sharing the most incredibly bad, Satanic tradition with all of the world. AIDS, for example, is spreading from America. To that kind of American, is saying “Yankee go home!” enough? No, it’s not enough, that is too soft. Just kick them out, into the ocean! Since Father is saying this kind of thing in America, the establishment of the American people will say, “Reverend Moon, this is our country. Don’t bother us, don’t meddle in our domestic affairs. You go home.” [No!] I came to save those Americans. What do you think-is Reverend Moon’s way one of hope, or do those Americans who continue to go in the same direction have something better? Where is there hope? [Father’s way.]
You should feel you can’t even look at American society today, you want only to spit on it. If you go in front of those places, don’t even look in that direction, you look the other direction and walk away. If your physical mother and father are living a life like that, you must feel, “I am no longer your son and daughter. Don’t bother me.” If your brothers, cousins or nephews are living that kind of life, you should say, “You have nothing to do with me.” There is a lot of horrible crime going on in this kind of society, but the most horrible crime is that Satan is spiritually killing so many people by killing off True Love, Life and Lineage. There is no greater sin or crime than to destroy True Love. Adam and Eve made just one mistake and the entire rest of humanity has gone to hell. That history has not been liquidated or restored. It is still there. You are the same. You are in a position now to prevent, cut off and destroy the evil, satanic way of life and to kick Satan out. Therefore you yourself have to lead the model, heavenly life as husband, wife and children. Amen! The most important thing for the Blessed couples is not to amass a fortune or have a beautiful house or lucrative life. That is not important. Even just appreciating Divine Principle is not as important as maintaining and continuing this pure lineage of True Parents, your God centered lineage, from generation to generation. Passing that on is the most important mission for the Blessed couple.
The original, heavenly position is such that when anybody sins, the parents become the judge. Adam and Eve’s father was God, so Heavenly Father judged them. By the same token, parents are the judges of their children. Next to parents, the wife is judged by her husband, and a husband is judged by his wife. The next judge would be the children. Children will judge the parents. The enemy of love is always hated by those closest in your family. The husband, wife and children hate the enemy of love most. Many of you try to deceive your husband, or wife, or your children, pretending you are a heavenly citizen or a heavenly qualified man or woman. You try to stand like that in front of God. Among all men, those kind of men and women deserve to be buried by a bulldozer. God hated the fallen act most. True Parents hated that act most. Unification Church hated that act most. Compared to this crime, even physical murder is nothing. One person’s life is important, but it is only like one branch. More importantly, spiritual murder is an attack on the root which affects everything. Do you follow? Father asked all the Blessed couples to be assembled here today, so he could talk to you in this manner and give you this special message.
This Blessing that the Church gave, which our True Parents gave to you, is the most important one. But that is not the end of it. The outside world is still against us. You were not Blessed within a heavenly atmosphere. All four corners of the world are still under Satan and that kind of situation is not the original Blessing place. When you received the Blessing, there was a lot of opposition. Therefore the time will come when the second Blessing will be given under a welcoming situation. The nation will give out the second Blessing. Do you have a nation? Ultimately the world will give out a Blessing-that is the third one. One, two, three Blessings you have to receive within your lifetime. You have no nation yet, therefore you have no world yet. Where is your nation? My nation is True Parents nation, this is clear and simple. Why True Parents nation? What about the fact that Korea is two Koreas at the moment, South and North? It is divided. First of all, Father is trying to accomplish the unity of one Korea. In order to accomplish this goal, Father needs all the major powers of the world to be united- the United States, Japan, the Soviet Union, China and so forth. Right wing and left wing, Father will digest everything. How can Father unite the Korean peninsula? Who is going to do it? Father will do it. Father has been rejected and persecuted by Korea. It is not yet my country. Both Koreas have come against Father. In order to unify Korea and really make it True Parents’ Korea, Father came to America to digest this country and guide the major powers of this world. Right now the most crucial nation in the world is Korea. The Berlin Wall has been symbolic of the difficulties of the world. Last year it came tumbling down. Now the most important, crucial line is the 38th Parallel.
East Germany and West Germany represented horizontal unification. South Korea and North Korea represent vertical unification. Horizontal unification has been accomplished. It is done. How about North and South Korea’s vertical unification? Who should be accomplishing it? [Father.] The German unification came because Gorbachev worked together with East Germany and negotiated. Together they joined with West Germany and made a deal. Because of that, the horizontal unification of Germany occurred.
Korea, however, is a vertical and internal situation. Gorbachev has cut himself off from North Korea. It used to be that Kim Il Sung was the protege of the Soviet Union, but Gorbachev cut him off. So Kim 11 Sung, the so-called father of North Korea, has only one ally, that is Satan. In South Korea we have True Parents centered upon God. The amazing thing is that we have the United States backing South Korea and because of Father’s conditions, Gorbachev now supports South Korea. Now China and Japan are also supporting. They are standing behind Father. This is a great triumph and accomplishment that Father has made. In the entire world, Satan can find only one national ally in Kim Il Sung. They are completely united but very lonely right now. However in South Korea we have God, True Parents and the United States. And then Father brought in Gorbachev, China and Japan on our side. Look at how much change has come about. It used to be that North Korea not only had Satan as the boss, but also had the support of the Soviet Union, Red China and all the communist world, over thirty different countries. Kim Il Sung was a big, fat guy, very proud, thinking, “Nobody bothers me!” For forty years he was the Red King, the crimson Red King, like a blood king. In South Korea however, Reverend Moon was very lonely because his only ally was God. During that forty year reign of the Red King in the north, Father and God in South Korea worked to bring all the allies to the south, one by one. In particular, last night [at the entertainment for True Parents Birthday celebration] you saw the film that highlighted Father’s visit to the Soviet Union. With his tremendous strategy and breakthrough in diplomacy, Father brought Gorbachev to God’s side.
Moving in an historical direction, Father and all people together have come to the edge of the cliff. Everybody else, the United States and all the allies have run away. They’re worried about the danger at the edge and are just watching to see what Reverend Moon is going to do. Reverend Moon would never make a blunder like walking off the edge of the cliff. No, he will turn around and tell everyone else, “If you hold hands with me and unite with me, you can turn around too and go in the right direction. All the others will become so cowardly, hiding and trying not to be sacrificed.” But now Reverend Moon has turned around, so all these big leaders like Gorbachev, Bush and Deng Zao Ping are watching Reverend Moon. They are listening to Father. Is Father listening to Bush? Is Father listening to Gorbachev? No, on the contrary, they are listening to Father. Father says, “Push Bush.” Father always said from the beginning that Bush doesn’t have a trunk, so he has no guts. So somebody has to push Bush. Who can tell Bush what to do? Will his different departments or advisors tell him what to do? Will the CIA director tell him what to do? No, they all listen to Bush. The only one who will say, “Bush do this” is Reverend Moon. The same is true with Gorbachev. Right now Gorbachev is in a very difficult position. He really listens to Father. When Father writes him a letter, he says, “Hurry, hurry, translate this into Russian.” He reads it with a red pencil and underlines the important parts. It is a recognized fact that the entire world is now looking on Father as the world’s spiritual leader. The world leader. Period.
Other people do not know which way to go or what direction to move in. Reverend Moon knows very clearly. Reverend Moon is going home, to his home country and also back to the original world. Who is in the hometown, who is waiting there? The parents and ancestors, brothers and sisters. But Father’s thinking is not that you will just return to your Satanic, fallen hometown. That is not what Father is talking about. You should make your town into a God centered place and create God centered parents, ancestors and brothers and sisters. After all hometown work is completed, then a home nation is created. After home nations get together, they can be created into a home world, that means the original world. So Father has given you this title of Tribal Messiah. It is an incredible title. Do you think Jesus was able to make a great homecoming or was he virtually kicked out of his home town and his home nation? Yes, he was kicked out. In this time we are going back to our home town and home nation, no problem. That position is more high level than even Jesus’ position. Do you understand? That is how you have been Blessed by True Parents. Do you think that Father has accomplished more than Jesus or less? [More.] Why? Because Jesus did not have a hometown or a home nation. Father has a hometown and a home nation. How precious the Blessing is. Without the existence of True Parents, even the word “blessing” would not exist. Because of the Fall of man, the three palaces have been lost. But now because of restoration, because of Father’s coming, the three palaces have been restored. There is no greater thing that you can expect. This is the greatest. If that is the case, then when the True Parents have their own home town, then you will have your own home, town and nation. The basic principle is the same. The center is the same. You will create God centered homes, villages, towns and nations.
Let’s say that in the United States the number of Blessed couples exceeds sixty million people. What do you think? [Sounds good!] Sounds good? Real good! You don’t need sound, just reality! Typical American expression! Imagine sixty million Blessed couples all say, “Alright, Korea! We all want to go to the homeland. Father’s fatherland of faith. We want to visit for one week. So everyone prepare the banquet, sixty million guests are coming to Korea!” Will they say no or yes? Korea’s population is sixty million. So if sixty million Blessed couples from America go to Seoul, Korea and grab one person each and turn them around overnight, do you think Korea would be restored or not? That is a much too easy way. That’s true! What if, instead of sixty million, there were worldwide 600 million Blessed couples? They all want to come to Korea. But then even Kim Il Sung has to run away to the top of a mountain and stay in a little tent. Korea would be flooded. There might not be any place to go, so they would have to cross the Yalu River and go to Manchuria and China. They would be trying to set up tents and stay there. Do you think that Red China would try to oppose them? No, they will welcome their visitors. So the unification can be done in one day, yes or no? We have too much strong power! We will have to tell Mr. Bush, “We’re going to have a banquet here for 600 million. Korea is a much too narrow place. We need a wide place.” We will have a big celebration day and night and all Americans can come one by one. In one night we can turn everyone around. That’s a much too easy way! Do you feel good? [Yes.] Why?
We must be Blessed three times, we have got only one Blessing so far. Next time we get the Blessing of the nation and after that, of the world. We will pass all boundaries of Satan’s blood when that root is cut [when these three Blessings are accomplished.] That is our hope. That’s why we are welcome. Do you understand? How many Blessings do you need? [Three.]
Korea’s unification is just a matter of time. So when you have the right to receive the nation’s Blessing, will only the husband and wife go? Or do you want to take all your children with you? In this gigantic Blessing ceremony, do you want your children to participate or not? Why do you want your children to participate? Because during our Blessing, it came under opposition and hardship. When the time comes that the nation will give you the Blessing, this will be a nationwide celebration. You will want to have your children with you. Let them be proud all together to be the children of our True Parents. Let them be proud and welcome, proud of their parents, proud of the True Parents, proud of being a Blessed couple’s children. What about the world wide Blessing? Where shall we receive that one? Where do we go? [Korea!] Korea is too little! Korea is the base for the national level not the world. It will be in the foundation of the western world. Do you understand? That kind of country which represents the world. America or Russia? Which place? Who will chose that place? [Father.] Which Father? [True Father.] Two or True? God is vertical True Parents. True Parents are horizontal parents. We have two parents, so which one chooses the country? I don’t know. Then the United States position will be a very proud position. You know you can bring the Blessing here if you can convince Father to come to your country. That will be such a great Blessing and from that time on in the entire world, homecoming and hometown restoration would be a matter of fact. When this time of national Blessing comes, you go to the world base-to Washington, then Seoul, then on to North Korea, to Chongju. Would you like to see Father’s home? Why? Because there, only in that one place did God plant True Love, True Life and True Lineage.
So we have to return home. So you look all over the world for a base where all people gather in one place. From your Blessing there at the world-wide level we go back to our hometown. From the world center blessed place, Washington DC, Tokyo and Chongju. One is home blessed place, one is home nation blessed place and one is the world blessed place. From the world size you go back to your hometown basement (base), from the world and national foundation to the hometown foundation. That is the road we take to return. Do you understand?
But we don’t have that world foundation. We want to visit that kind of place with such a high purpose. We don’t have a nation foundation either. All we have is Father’s home, that is Chongju. But that does not represent the world or the nation. We have to make those independently. That means everybody has to make their own foundation. Father doesn’t want to help everybody. You should feel, “This lost world is mine. I have to restore it completely.” This is your time to act. Do you understand that? It is your responsibility. Hurry up.
Hometown is our last terminal point, isn’t it? This has to be my determination, “No matter how difficult it may be I will reach that place.” Have you made that kind of determination in your mind? That is the most precious thing.
How precious you Blessed couples and Blessed families are. You have to find your destiny which is going to your hometown, your home nation and home world. When you return to your hometown, you’re not going there just to live. No, you are going to mobilize your clan to the God centered ideology so they can really accept our True Parents. Each home will have True Parents picture so you can really create your own clan. That way you are truly a tribal leader. That is why Father gave you the title of Tribal Messiah. We are not going to live just for our own well-being, having “my house”, “my fortune” and “my children.” That is not your goal. We are all like people living in Egypt. We have to make our exodus out of this satanic world and go to the land of Canaan. We don’t have to move around all the time, but make your hometown into the land of Canaan. The most precious thing of God’s blessing that came from True Parents was the True Parents power. The United States of America headed by George Bush and the Soviet Union headed by Mr. Gorbachev are under Father’s moral influence. Therefore only one country needs to be added to this ring. When South and North Korea join into one and unite with Father then everything will be consummated so quickly. This is the greatest blessing of all. Once these three nations come together the world wide foundation will immediately be laid. Amen!
Father’s lifetime goal, the unification of the Fatherland, South Korea and North Korea, is quite imminent. For this the entire spirit world is mobilized. Today the greatest and best news that I can share with you, all the Blessed couples of America, is that the reunification of the Fatherland is near!
Father wrote here on the board, “gospel.” This is the gospel to you. Gospel means what? Good news. This is the good news for you. Amen! Father always has very special explanations. He says gospel means “guts-full” news. We will combine into one and at this time spread all over the United States and stir up this country! We can shake up America. Is this good, great, excellent, wonderful, which one? Amazing! Amen! [Much cheering and applause.] You are much too noisy, you keep that power. You have to focus it in one place. Will you do it or stop? [Do it.] You have no problem. You have many kinds of armaments. Father testified to that kind of armament and gave it to you completely. You can use it to become a champion and clean up everything completely. How wonderful that is! Does it sound good? You are making your reality. In your hometown you are making all relatives respect you. They will support you as their center. That means you are leading your street or country to the foundation. No problem. Is that the theoretical conclusion or the real conclusion? Will you really do it or not? Do you understand clearly? You have to liberate your nation and the world wide foundation. Thank you very, what? [Much.] Quantity. Thank you very quantity. That is a unique sound, it is better!
So Father assembled the Blessed couples today because Father would like to say this very clearly-how important your positions are, how important a mission is in front of you so you understand Father’s will absolutely clearly. By doing so you can follow his instructions to the letter. Which way do you think-“Today I listened to Father, but now I am going home and my agenda is different. I’m going to work for my child and my little savings that I have here. I want to buy a home. Father said one thing, but I will do something else.” Is that a true Blessed couple? Is that what you are going to do? [No!] In other words what Father is giving you today is a marching order. He is making you a front line soldier. Father does not yet have a restored hometown; it is still in North Korea. You have no nation, Father does not yet have a nation. We don’t have our world, so we have a big job ahead of us. Father needs front line soldiers who are the greatest soldiers of all. That’s why you Blessed couples were chosen to come listen to Father today.
We know we have a hometown but do we have a job to be done in our hometown? We don’t have a home nation or a home world. Father is in the same situation. Therefore we work together, but you must not be behind Father. You must be ahead of Father, telling him, “Yes, Father, you just stay there. We will do it, you don’t worry about anything. We will take care of things.” That is the kind of Blessed couple Father needs.
Father’s proposal to Mr. Gorbachev was that he should leave the Russian Orthodox church in Father’s hands. Father said he would train them and give them the burning desire to become the true disciples of God. By doing so Russia would become greater, far exceeding the United States. That is the kind of hope Father gave him. He asked Gorbachev to send 1000 clergymen to him for training. So if Gorbachev will listen to that you know the Soviet Union will become a completely different kind of place. It took Father fourteen years to help Ronald Regan become president twice and George Bush president once. Even under persecution here in America, Father made that kind of foundation. Compared to that, everywhere Father went in the Soviet Union, the leaders and churches welcomed me, immediately combining into one and standing for God’s purpose there. So are you going to fall behind the Soviet Union? Are you going to be defeated by the communists? [No!] Your determination will be shown through your result, not through your talking, but by your action. Otherwise how can you reach the conclusion, that terminal point? Are you absolutely clear today, yes or no? [Yes!] When you get back home, what will you do? You must create your own soldiers, your own weapons. That means you have to create your own economic power and human power. You need manpower and money power. Why? God lost all man and all creation. In this time we have to take the opposite or reverse way meaning we have to take back man and the right of possession. God lost everything so we will take it back. First manpower, then creating power. Do you understand? Father needs manpower from all five races of man. Kim Il Sung now needs money. He is standing in a basement which is getting more and more narrow. Before he falls down I will go in and help him, otherwise he will be broken. Even Father is trying to save Kim Il Sung. All he has to do is just receive the message. So you understand, right? Yes or no?
If I do all these tasks I almost feel hatred towards America. I don’t feel like doing any more here. If Father is staying here continuously, since you have received the very best this morning, Father gave his very best to the Blessed couples, but if Father keeps staying here in the United States, you will just keep saying, “Give me more Father, something more.” You become more demanding without appreciating what you have received. In other words you will not be putting down your own roots into the ground. If Father is not here, you know, “Well, Father is gone so I have to rely on myself. Between God and me, with nobody else, I’ve got do it.” So American couples have been ordered to go to a forty-day mission outside the country. Those who went out and fulfilled your mission, raise your hands please. After your forty-day experience, did you learn a lot and feel grateful to Father, or did you lose and come out disadvantaged? Which one? [We gained.] I am sure when you went out of the country that you came to this conclusion, “Father, please forgive me. I repent because in the United States I take everything for granted. I have not given 100% effort. I now realize by coming out of the United States how blessed my country is and Father I am sorry I have not done my best.” Did you think that way? [Yes.] So, going out of the country, if you did more there than what you do in the United States, it is absolutely commendable. Truly inspirational. It is an incredible gain to you. Have you thought about that? This is a process of homecoming and returning home. I may not need this kind of conference anymore. Father feels instead of assembling Blessed couples or major leaders in New York for this kind of meeting, Father will be waiting for an invitation. You can send one saying, “Father in my hometown I am a Tribal Messiah and I’ve got 100 people (or 500 or 1,000 or 2,000 people) to listen to you and accept your message. Will you kindly come?” Father will say, “Okay! I’ll be glad to go there.” When Father visits for the first time, his car will be full of gifts. Father will buy all kinds of things and fill his car. Father’s car is not a small Volkswagen! Father’s car is a big limousine, so “full of gifts” means a lot of presents. I can give them out to 2000 people, no problem! If they receive something from Father they will treasure it so much. This will be a tremendous incentive to get out and do more. You will want to invite Father again, to another place. More and more people will come to feel that way and it will be a tremendous incentive. I am sure that among you, you will be able to do it. Think about it, wherever that kind of meeting happens, it will be an historical event for that town. They never had such a VIP like Father visit that town. They will want to build Father’s statue. Father will announce there, “This is historical. You are the first to invite me, so undoubtedly all Unification Church members in the future will make it a point to come and visit your town.” That town will become the most world famous. Result is the most important thing so Father would recommend these contents for how to make prosperity in the future that can continue to go up and up and up forever. That place would be the number one city in the world. Why not? Father will not pass away. In that town’s history, Father will remain forever.
Have you ever thought that one day, though it is still far in the future, Father will be elevated into Heaven and of course, each one of us also, one by one will join Father in Heaven, have you ever thought about which couple would be the last to remain here on earth? Do you think they would be a very poor couple or the happiest couple? That one final couple actually Blessed by Father, which remains on the earth will become the most precious treasure on earth. The entire world will be looking at him and her and be thinking, “We’ve got to visit and see that couple before we get Blessed.” In other words, there will be only a limited number of couples Blessed by True Parents. You are truly lucky ones. So you’ve never realized that the day will come that everyone dies, has their Seunghwa and go to spirit world and the final couple Blessed by True Parents will be remaining. Think about it. Do you have confidence in the kind of precious position that you have in being Blessed by True Parents? We never know, that final couple remaining here on earth could be a black couple, or an Asian couple. Would you complain, asking why they couldn’t be a white couple? They will truly be historical persons.
Your position is, in a way, higher than Jesus’ position. Let’s say that Jesus was able to receive the Blessing. Would there be any fall or any mistakes in the life of Jesus, what do you think? [No.] It’s unthinkable, right? But you are in a higher position. What if Satan had physically forced Jesus to fall. What would have happened? Would he have fallen or not? If worst came to worst, like a kidnap and rape for example, that kind of method was applied to Jesus against his will to commit the fallen act, what would he have done? I think Jesus would cut off that part, then cut his neck and say, “That’s it.” Why is that? Because he would want to leave a level, a standard behind. In order to save the future generations, he would feel the need to leave a good example of a great tradition here on earth. So to give up his life would be nothing in order to leave a great impact on the future and history. You are going to be the doctor to those who commit adultery, iniquity and immorality. You are a doctor with a special field. Adultery is the worst disease in this country. You have to become a surgeon and make many operations here in America. Unless you can do that America will perish. Families have broken down, all society is breaking down. Immorality continues to grow. Where will the future generation go, except into decline? Those who will say as a Blessed couple, “Father, please trust me. I will never leave the Principle and I will never engage in fallen acts”, raise your hands please.
Now I order you to become a judge or supervisor of the Unification Church all over the country. You are now a supervisor. If there is a hidden, secret fallen act in the church you have to expose it, don’t bury it. Expose and judge it and properly treat it and repent for it.
Do you follow? That is how strongly Father is speaking. Father has not spoken that strongly before. Under false parents all kinds of iniquities have been committed. For that reason True Parents have had to expose and give this truth and guidelines, spelling out the laws of the family, so that you become a good judge and supervisor. Do you understand? This is our mission.
Do you think America needs that kind of action? President Bush declared a drug war on which billions and billions of dollars have been spent. Has the drug war cleaned up the use of drugs in this country? [No!] So it failed. If Bush had instead given only one tenth of that budget to Reverend Moon, his teachings would have cleansed this country a long time ago. You listen to me, don’t you? You follow Father’s advice don’t you? Why? Because Father’s order is to save America, your country. Father has been misunderstood and persecuted by this country. So you must be welcomed by your hometown because of your deeds and holiness. Your life is holy in the eyes of the secular world. They see you as a holy saint. In that capacity go to your hometown, gather the people, embrace them and love them and there is no one who will not respond to you.
No one would deny you. You are smart guys.
So Father’s age is now in the seventies. It will be the year 2000 when Father welcomes his eightieth birthday. Father’s goal is to make one world under God. He wants to accomplish this before the year 2000 comes. Is unification an easy job? Why do we have to create unification? Because of the Fall of Man the mind and body have been separated. Because the body seeks after carnal desire the world has been divided into ten thousand different directions. What is the origin of unification? Where should unification begin, in the world, the nation, where? Within myself. You have to begin. No matter how much history is running in a unified fashion, unless you are living in a united way, it has nothing to do with you. Have your mind and body become one? When mind and body are not united, your love cannot be one beautiful pure love, also your work is not going to be one pure single minded effort, nothing can be one. All your five senses will work in two directions making you see a double image. If you are in that kind of shape how can you loudly say to others, “You have to imitate me” or “You should follow my image, be like me”? Do you think Father could do that-tell you to do what he could not demonstrate himself? When Father speaks he says, “If you cannot do this, I will make it happen. I shall bring it about.” That is always Father’s determination, “I shall make it happen.” When Father says something, he says it with his mind and body in a united fashion. Father does not tease anybody. Father does not just speak passing words or talk in a joking tone. When you talk with your friends, your answer is always, “yes.” But you have to evaluate yourself. Was your “Yes” spoken with a united mind and body? Were you speaking in that kind of fashion? Or did you give just lip service, speaking only with your mouth, your heart and mind having nothing to do with it? Your mind is eternal and your body is reality. If your mind and body together equals one-hundred percent and your body is seventy percent of that strength, your body will always win seventy percent of the time. Let’s say your mind is seventy percent, you will still have thirty percent failure. Your mind must be one-hundred percent and your body must be one-hundred percent obedient to it. You need one-hundred percent unity. One-hundred percent body subjugation. In front of Father, so many times today, you have said, “Yes, Father!” and raised two hands. But as soon as you go out of that door, do you forget? Are you thinking instead, “Oh no, I have this worry and that worry”? When lunch times comes, you go out to eat. Your mind tells you, “Before you go eat, why don’t you witness to one person? Then you can come back and eat a victorious lunch.” The body will say, “What are you talking about, mind? We’ve got to eat lunch first! After that you’ll have energy and you can go witness to two people.” The body always has good excuses. Is it true or not? Well the body said something very smart. Following its idea the result would be even better. No matter what, if the result sounds better or not, the body’s mission is to obey the mind, period. Mind is the master. Mind says something, body should obey. You should always check whether your talk and action is coming from your mind and body united together. Check to see if you are listening to the mind’s orders or the body’s orders.
American people love a sense of humor, you love to joke. Does joking come from the mind or body? Whose word is that? Tell me clearly. The body is the joke’s owner. Have you ever thought about the percentage of really holy American jokes? Or are most of them dirty, body type of jokes? Which is more prevalent, jokes centering on good deeds or evil deeds? [Evil deeds.] You know well, the answer is clear. That means that joking is the body’s language. Joking even makes the body laugh, in the meantime all the barriers, including the moral barriers are broken down. As soon as he came to the United States, Father realized he had to wipe out immoral jokes from this country. Satan is always trying to make you laugh, saying, “Everything is just a joke, why don’t you laugh?” This is serious business, it’s no longer laughing business here. American culture is a joke culture, a dancing culture, a blind culture. It is an abuse of freedom culture, not true freedom culture. Father realized eighty percent or more of jokes are on the satanic side, Satan’s work. Do you agree with Father? [Yes.]
How difficult it is to restore fallen man into a holy man! You have absolutely no idea. Father is always sympathetic to God. With this kind of material, with this kind of environment, God’s mission is to make holy men out of these fallen, dirty creatures. How pitiful for God. Father has so much sympathy for God. I may not be able to make my whole body holy, but at least I’ll make my one arm holy, so I can hold my arm and enter into Heaven. At least I have something to present. Even if I can only make one eye holy or even half of my mouth, it is at least something that I can offer. Your mind is always encouraging your holy part. Your mind is always attacking the other parts, saying “You must also become holy.”
Trivial matters are always important, for example, how to eat, how to live. Ultimately we even have to contemplate how to die. All three are important. So how shall I eat? What manner shall I live in? Ultimately how shall I die? Are you concerned to have nice food for breakfast, lunch and dinner, using beautiful dishes for each gorgeous meal? Is that good living? Or can you live on McDonalds food three meals a day, but with your desire to focus only upon one thing-to obey your mind. If you ask which way is best your mind will answer you clearly. Always seek to obey your mind. Each night reflect upon the day’s life and ask if you obeyed your mind or not.
Your body always says to eat the best food possible, as luxurious food as possible. Expensive as possible. The body wants three meals a day like that and thinks that is the best way of life. Your mind will say, “No, instead of eating the best food possible I am going to serve other people, share with others and help them.” This is the mind’s order. The body and mind conflict. Which one would you obey? Which is the good life? When you obey the order of the body, your conscience will hurt. Your mind will always feel that. Your mind is always working in God’s direction. There are always two conflicting voices going on inside your body. Your mind talks and your body talks. Is two ways better? The mind always says to go through life in the middle and lower. That is comfortable for the mind. You may not have a luxurious bedroom, only a very humble bed, or even sleeping on the floor, but the mind feels very light and very joyful. The body will complain. Look at how humbly Father has dressed. This is a public place but Father has dressed simply. Father could dress well, with a beautiful tie and a diamond pin, but Father never presents himself as part of an autocratic or high society. Father is always living in the middle and below. When you stand in the middle you can reach easily reach out to those in high society as well as those at the bottom. When Father was young, he was a laborer. Sometimes he almost looked like a beggar. He wore clothes thrown out by the army and humble shoes. Father dressed as a beggar, worked as a laborer, but thought like a king. His mind and conscience are always free. Father always thinks about two worlds, here and there. The conscience can work two ways, it works in both worlds. If your conscience is guiding you correctly, it is welcome in the highest possible place as well as the lowest possible place. Do you think Father is a very arrogant teacher or very humble and natural? Humble people are natural, also holy people are natural.
Ultimately, how do we die? That is the ultimate question, the ultimate homework we have to do. It is our ultimate challenge. You must live correctly, and you must die correctly. What is correct dying? If you die for your own sake, your death is not a holy one. If you die for somebody else, for the sake of the country or sake of the world, your death is a precious and holy death, a good death. You may not have the chance to serve the country like the soldiers in the Gulf war and you may not have the chance to die for the sake of the world very easily, but the important thing is not going out to world war. The important thing is that you harbor God’s will and God’s purpose, then serve your wife, your husband, your parents, your children, God and True Parents. Then serve the country. While you are doing that, if you die, it is a good death, a successful death. Why is that? The grandfather and grandmother of a family represent the past ancestors, your parents represent the contemporary world.
Your parents are the home’s owner aren’t they? And you yourself represent the future. By serving the family you are serving the entire history, past, present and future. Connecting those three loves means connecting all history through the loving way. For that reason grandparents want to live with their children and grandchildren. Parents want to live with their children. You yourself must be able to live with your parents and grandparents because you live in history. What about American culture? It is a horizontal culture. American couples don’t want their parents. They don’t want too many children. American families don’t have that vertical love system, only horizontal. The horizontal place’s direction changes anytime, even 300 degrees. The vertical does not move even one degree. American love doesn’t have a center or an axis. It is moving around, heading towards a collision.
[Father draws on blackboard.] Grandfather, grandmother, mother and father, and you yourself, that equals the Heavenly Four Position Foundation. The top is actually God’s position, but it is occupied by the grandparents. In the middle there is the crossing juncture, where the action is. A very heartwarming story was reported to Father recently. It is from one couple who has an international marriage. One American family has three sons. Both elder sons are married. The youngest son is member of the Unification Church and Father Blessed him with a Korean girl. Initially the whole family persecuted this Oriental girl, saying, “Why did Reverend Moon gave such an ugly Korean girl as a daughter-in-law?” But what happened? After so many months and years, the parents were comparing the three daughters-in-law. They discovered that there was no comparison, that the difference between their older daughters-in-law and this Korean daughter-in-law was like night and day. The parents were so apologetic and repenting. Then a birthday came. The eldest daughter-in-law brought a big box. It looked like a very big gift, but it was very cheap stuff inside. Absolutely cheap stuff. It looked big, but was actually nothing. The second daughter-in-law brought a medium sized box. Again, it was like a make believe gift, nothing at all. The third daughter-in-law, the Korean sister brought a very small box. Did the parents seem to be disappointed? No, they thought, “The best daughter, most precious daughter gave this to me.” When they opened it up, they found a big check. She gave it to the father and mother saying, “You need some money so that you can buy things. Enjoy yourself, go out for a meal. You can go to a Chinese restaurant. Please do something. My husband and I earned this money with sweat and labor for one month to prepare this gift. Please accept it.” They completely broke down in tears they were so moved. Think about it. Which daughter-in-law is the best? [The third one.] From the parents’ point of view they feel, “This is the kind of daughter-in-law I can leave my entire inheritance to because this kind of person would never spend one penny of it for her own sake. She would spend it for the goodness of the family, goodness of the children or society or nation.” This gift virtually transformed the personality of the mother and father-in-law. The mother in law believes so much that her last daughter in law is the one to whom, even in their own lifetime, they want to give everything they have to her saying, “Here it is, do with it whatever you want.” Because they know that daughter-in-law would not do anything for her own sake. In many cases people think that Unification Church members become beggars, but if we become beggars, if we become pure, it is for whose sake? Are we incapable or we can’t earn money? Not at all. We’re doing it for the will of God and for the sake of the country. Yes, because we are devoting ourselves and our energies somewhere else, that is why I am not rich.
Say the master gives some money to a servant to make some errand and buy some things. Instead of taking a percentage as a commission and thinking, “I am a good servant I should make some commission off of this,” what if the servant does his absolute best at his chore, even adding his own money because he didn’t have enough to buy the things? When the master finds out about it how would he feel? He would think, “This servant is not a servant, he is more like my son. I can endow upon him the entire fortune that I have.” Say that master gave some money to the servant for him to go spend and then he follows the servant to see where he will go to spend the money. He went to the orphanage and gives the entire amount to the orphanage, plus adding up his own pocket money and giving it all. The master was deeply touched and moved and came home thinking, “I can give my fortune to that man. He will not spoil my fortune. He will spend it for the sake of goodness, for the sake of heaven.” That is the road to prosperity. Everything else is the road to disaster.
So has Father come to the United States to plunder the Unification Church or did Father come here to sacrifice himself for America and the sake of the world? Which one? [Sacrifice.] Many people misunderstood Father, thinking that he was coming here trying to scrounge money, put in his money and take it to Korea where he would put it in his own bank account. Many people initially misunderstood Father like that. But instead of Father taking any money from America to anywhere else, the world-wide movement has contributed money to America. We have more money invested in America than any other single country in the world. With that kind of money would we like Father to give us a salary? [No.] If we are given a salary and add our own fundraising money from selling roses on Mother’s Day would you then use that money for the sake of charities? On the contrary we sometimes think, “Oh someplace else pays more salary, I want to go over there.” Okay if you want to go and change your mission, go ahead, but in the meantime you pay me a salary! Pay Father a salary and then you can go to a good place. But has anybody ever given Father a salary? For twenty years I have not received on penny of a salary from anybody, but everybody comes to Father, trying to dig money out of him. They are like parasites, sucking the blood.
Die well. Father does not want to lie down sick for many months or be hospitalized. Father does not want to go to a hospital and die in a hospital bed. Not at all. Father just goes on with his mission, and mission and mission and one day will come and Heavenly Father will say, “My son, you have suffered so much, you come home.” And God will pick him up. That is what I want. So then everyone should imitate Father and live like Father. It won’t be easy. When Father is lifted up to the spirit world, you know you have to imitate Father’s life. You are eye witnesses to Father’s life, so you must live like him. And after you pass away, you again have to meet Father. You will say to me, “I exactly followed your way so I am automatically close to you.” That is the natural way. Father will say, “Yes, that’s true.” If you don’t live like me, you cannot lift your face to me in the spirit world. Father will turn away and say he doesn’t know you. Actually in that case Father said he doesn’t have to turn around, you have to turn around. It’s true.
Father has understood God’s position and I have absolutely followed the same way. The person who can follow that is the most smart one. All people look at Reverend Moon and say, “He is like a crazy guy.” I don’t care. I will continue in the correct direction no matter what kind of obstacles exist. Do you only want to follow a convenient course? Do you like that? Satan likes that. You don’t belong to Satan, you originally belong to God. What would you like for Father to be teaching? You want to hear him say, “Go ahead earn a lot of money, live well, that’s your job. Do it, show me your big house and big automobile.” Do you want Father to talk like that or do you want Father to tell you to give every penny for the sake of humanity, for the sake of the country, for the sake of goodness. Which direction would you like to receive? [The second one.] The second one sounds almost like a cruel way, but in terms of internal life, Father is giving you the best blessing by doing so. That’s why Father is a different kind of parent. What is the difference between your physical parents and True Parents? You physical parents always said, “What are you doing fooling around in the Unification Church? You could go earn money. You could feed your kids better and live in a big house.” True Parents say, ‘No, work for God, work for the country, work for the world. Work for the sake of others.” That is the True Parents’ teaching. So you have a choice. You can follow the True Parents’ teaching or your physical parents’ teaching. Which one will ensure your eternal life? [True Parents.] I know what your families are saying-“You are cleaver, you’re my brother, you can live well. You could do good and have a good job.” They might even say, “I am shamed by you. What are you doing fooling around with Reverend Moon. You know he’s not going to give you any money. He only makes you poor. Why can’t you separate from Reverend Moon?” I know this is the kind of advice you are listening to from your parents and brothers and sisters. Even so, I am not going to budge, not one iota. I am teaching the True Parents’ teaching knowing that it will ensure your eternal life. Father has many children, so many that he doesn’t even know how many he has! At East Garden, part of the True Family’s tradition is that since Father has so many children, when they were young, they could seldom have a meal with Father. But sometimes they would be sitting at one table sharing a meal with Father and Mother and then all of a sudden some leaders would come and Father would tell the children, “You go upstairs.” One of the children would go upstairs. If two leaders showed up, he would tell two of the children to get up and yield their seats. One by one all the children would be chased out. When they were young they said, “Mom, Dad, what kind of parents are you? You are not our dad and mom, you are thirty six couples’ dad and mom.” They were not so happy. Father always told them, “Wait until you become twenty years of age or more then you will understand your father and mother.” Many of them are now over twenty years of age and have received the Blessing. Now they realize what Father has been doing and now they cannot lift up their faces to Father and Mother because when they were young they complained too much. So even now they have no words in front of True Parents other than, “Father and Mother we are very sorry. You are really loving entire humanity. You are living and loving for the sake of the world. We must follow in your footsteps. We are very honored to have True Parents as our physical father and mother.” They feel so grateful. Hyo Jin Nim is writing a lot of songs and several albums have been produced. There are many love songs, but Hyo Jin Nim always thinks of the love subject as his father and mother. The love songs are centered upon the True Parents. That’s why Hyo Jin Nim always cries when he sings his songs, because he thinks of Father and Mother.
They look at Father’s face and expression, and just looking at Father they don’t need a lot of language. They understood Father and what he is up to, what he is trying to do. East Garden staff from top to bottom, security guards, special assistants, down to all the kitchen staff and the True Children’s staff-twelve nationalities are living together at East Garden. Can you imagine that in one house? Twelve different languages are spoken. There are all kinds of things happening, but Father understands each one of them, their long points, their short points, their shortcomings, good habits, bad habits, if they are talkative or not talkative, Father knows everything. But Father never says a words to those staff people because to those staff the most fearful person is Father. They just tremble when Father passes by. However at the same time, the most loving person is Father.
When Father is coming back, everybody is in tears. For example when Father is coming back from Korea, there are no staff members who are not crying or who are not there. But Father never says a word. Father never calls even one staff member to say, “What are you doing, that isn’t right. You do it this way.” Father never, ever did that. You never understand. The western world, American people truly can’t understand that, but this is Father’s principle. Father is teaching them by deed. Do you think that God is just talkative, jabbering nonstop all the time? Is that what you think God is like? Not at all. God is silent. God is teaching. It’s the same thing, Father doesn’t want to say much to you either. Father now looks at you as grown up children. You are grown up now because most of you have become moms and dads.
When you look at your own children, your sons and daughters, don’t look at them thinking, “Oh, my loving daughter, my loving son… ”
Look at them and think, “They belong to the world. This is not my son. This is God’s son. He belongs to the country. I must be demonstrating the model to be a true mother or father to them.” Also it is not easy to become a good husband or model husband. We are not talking about a secular husband, we are talking about a heavenly good husband. To become that kind of husband or wife is not easy. Furthermore it is not easy to become an older brother, or to be a younger brother either. It is not done by word, it is done by heart. So heart to heart contact is the best education for your children. Spanking your child and scolding your child is not the best way to teach your children. Let them understand your heart. Gradually but surely they will. They are not that dumb. They are smart.
Father started out today’s important meeting but already time is passing very quickly. So Father wants to move onto the agenda. Father started out the sermon saying that the world unification started out from the unification between mind and body. It started with me. Here. When I say “I” it means both men and women. Men say “I”, women say “I”. Man’s mind and body united creates one unit. Women’s mind-women’s body united is one unit. So then you will be known, you will be called a true man, a true woman. Trained as true men and true women unification happens. That is a logical consequence. Think about it. How do men and women become one? Self-centered men and women will never bring unity. They will never bring harmony. So Father’s teaching is that man is born for the sake of woman and woman is born for the sake of the man. We are born for each other. Your beginning, your original creation is nor for your own sake. Man was made for the sake of woman and woman was created for the sake of man.
By creating man, what did God want to accomplish? He wanted man and woman become one-mind and body united into one centering upon what? True Love. What is True Love? True Love is God’s love. God’s way of loving is to invest totally. Not only one hundred percent, but one hundred times one hundred percent. That is God’s kind of love and we must imitate True Love. When we do that as men and women, we practice God’s love-God’s way of life. When we imitate God then we always wish our partner or our object to be better than ourselves. You want your wife to be better than yourself. Your wife wants her husband to be better than herself. Parents want their children to be better than themselves. Total investment, then forget it. God invests and then forgets. He doesn’t remember. God does not do love bookkeeping-no! That is the characteristic of True Love.
Eternal, true investment. Eternal investment. Every day He invests more. God is eternal. God is continuously investing. Therefore the recipient of that love have a relationship with God that we call eternal life. That is why eternity comes into being. So think about it. God created all things, men and all creatures for the sake of love, True Love. So all of a sudden all of the creation, including God becomes so close to you. Intimate to you. So far you feel mechanically, “Oh God is so far away. All things are so far away, I have nothing to do with Him.” No! God is so close to you. God created me-because of His love. Because God has True Love is the reason alone that the objects of God alone can enjoy eternal life and no other.
Why did God create men and women — two kinds of human beings? Because God made men with what women need and women have what men need in order to fulfill love, then in order to fulfill love you have to give and take. You have to totally unite mind and body. This is the secret, this the procedure God has in His mind, and so in His creation. Love. That is the purpose of creation no one can deny. But what kind of love? True Love. True Love contents are unchangeable, unique love, forever love. True Love is everlasting. The contents and attributes say, “Unity. Forever”. How valuable are they. God wants to rest there. God will join and begin there. God is happiest taking that love True Love. True Love can get everything. If you lose True Love then you lose everything. If you get True Love then you get everything. So God wants that kind of love. He wants to see that kind of phenomenon, that kind of characteristic, that kind of man and woman who are unified forever, not just for an instant. Understand? God wants to center on True Love, unifying man and woman. Man and woman want True God unifying them. This can only be done centering upon True Love. There is no other way. Understand? I connect that center point to True Love. That is the place that God exists. “My wife’s love”, “My husband’s ideal love center is the source. That core, that center is God.” Embracing my love’s center is like the body. God’s love place is like my True Love mind. Do you understand. The opposite sex’s love is like my body. Combine either one and you can move anywhere in the universe and it will be the same. How wonderful. The whole universe will welcome this, will welcome people who occupy such a place of True Love. That is the place of freedom. It is the happiest place. There will be no obstacles there. Everything will push you on, up, up, up. There are surprises there. Power, more happiness. It is wonderful. A joyful world. Do you follow me? Do you have such a center?
That center of love can get everything. The individual mind cannot imagine how it can get full up. Only one thing can do it — True Love — including God. True Love’s attributes contain characteristics of inheritance. In True Love you can be free, free-happy, happy. You have that kind of high dignity don’t you? You have complete happiness don’t you?
That kind of center that creates value is the True Love standard place. Otherwise we cannot unify mind and body. Without True Love you cannot unify man and woman. So you have to take the concept of “living for the sake of others” completely into you. Then you can make the ideal society no problem. No problem. But without True Love you will not create a happy world. The absolutely most valuable thing is what? (True Love). True Love. Living for the sake of others. So woman was born for the sake of what? Woman! (No!) WOMAN! (No!) K.N.O.W.? (No!) Same sound! An man, a husband was born for the sake of? (Woman) Women listening to that sound, how wonderful it is!
Everybody likes True Father. (Yes!) Why? (True Love). True Love makes action, makes you think, “When True Father affirms the center, my mind is dancing, making vibrations. Strong frequencies. Powerful. When Father is centered here, the room is full. When Father leaves America, it becomes a vacant place immediately. Father comes back here and vrooooom the place is full again. Strange power. That kind of powerful influence is the power of True Love. Do you understand? You can have the same thing as Father. You go everywhere talking, dwelling, and immediately a true plus can make a true minus. That is the principle viewpoint. True subject of true love will make that center appear automatically. That’s true. Why? Standing in one place forever, settlement in one place, taking action, making give and take. Automatically you create a central place where the vertical connects making it global. The land and earth, the same thing. North axis and south axis making a vertical line around which the earth revolves every year. It does not change. The same things. You have the two characteristics, mind and body. What is the center? God. One is horizontal one is vertical. What kind of degree do you make with the vertical? Ninety degrees. Why? Why? True Love’s way is the shortest way and the vertical way is the shortest way and so ninety degrees. Not ninety-one degrees. The shortest way is ninety degrees, otherwise there is no way to make a global, three dimensional space. That is the ideal, being global. Why? Then you can stand in every place by connecting with the vertical axis. Every time. On a globe, each space can connect with the vertical. That is the ideal of existence. Centering on the vertical we can catch many degrees. This is the most ideal angle of relationship, ninety degrees. Everything can be connected, front, back, left and right, up and down through this ninety degree relationship between the vertical and horizontal. That is the ideal center. God is the ideal being so He wants to stay in this ideal place. Where is the ideal place? That core place. Look at the globe. The seat of power is only in that one place, the center isn’t it? There are many other places, but the ideal point is the center. Which is the place God dwells every day, forever? In the central place of True Love. Where does God want to dwell? In the family where there is True Parents love, grandparents love, children’s love, all kinds of love can be experienced from this center.
The conclusion is simple. Why do you want to make a peaceful world? For whom? (God. Others.) For me! (Others!) Until now the fallen world concept was peace for me! But from now, peace for others! True Love is the true motive. Sounds good. Feeling is good. Taste is good. Looking is good. Smelling is good. Touching is good. Too much smelling! (Laughter). Following the ideal way. Do you understand?
When I speak in English, hearing is more easy right? Father is interpreting. (Dr. Pak: Thank you Father for giving me a vacation!)
The problem is when I speak English, the Koreans are in trouble! Either case the Japanese are always in trouble! From early morning up until this time of two o’clock, Father has been expounding on just one subject. What’s that subject? (True Love.) True Love can go on many, many more hours.) True Love begins where? True Love begins right here. If True Love begins, we become the personification of True Love, all happiness will begin from there. Because of you your family becomes happy-a happy True Love family. Then because of you, the community can become a True Love community, the nation and world too. Everything starts from you right here — between your mind and body. True Love must be practiced right there. Perfected right there. Then you are the beginning of the unification of the world.
Father has been expounding on True Love as the source of the solution to the world problem, the source of peace. Everything begins from here. Father is dealing with the entire world’s problem today. Always there is a solution. Father wants to make the solution through True Love by preaching True Love, practicing True Love, teaching True Love. By doing so Father wants to bring the solution to the world problems. The world solution is really not that difficult. It actually depends upon oneself. Each one of us. This is what Father is really trying to let the world know.
The religious world is nothing more than an extension of the mind. Mind expanded externally turned out to be the religious world. The body is expanded into the political reality. Therefore when you govern your mind and body you automatically govern the religious reality as well as the political reality. This is why Father is dealing with the entire thing. Always remember that the mind and conscience are on the side of God and the body is the ally or instrument of Satan. Why has the mind become God’s side and the body Satan’s side? Mind is on the side of God, imitating God’s work. Therefore just like God, throughout your entire life the mind is keeping on investing. It keeps investing and forgetting. Investing more, investing more. Forget. Invest more. Invest more, and forget. That is God’s way of life. Mind is imitating that way of life. Until now God wanted to save those practices of investing and forgetting, investing and forgetting for His side. So such are called God’s side. Mind is God’s side. Is that clear? Why is the body Satan’s side? It centers on “me”. Every time it’s center is “me”. This position is opposite to the mind’s position. Satan is the center, another plus position, taking love, making give and take centering upon self. Satan’s thinking is, “You are my property. You are mine.” But God is different. “Mine is yours. Yours is the family’s. The family’s is the tribe’s. The tribe’s is the nation’s. The nation’s is the world’s. The world is the cosmos’. The cosmos is God’s property.” In that way the small thing is connected to all the bigger, most precious things based upon True Love. How valuable this is! That kind of thing is so valuable, so different from the communist concept of what is yours is mine! Do you understand? You have to know this very clearly. What is God’s side and what is Satan’s side in you. “I am the field of Satan’s-the body. And another side is God’s walking ground. Now separate them. The real purpose is then to discover how to occupy the body so that it too becomes God’s place. This is the humble way, forsaking, leaving the self-centered way behind.
Even though there have been great religious teachings like Confucius, Buddha, Jesus, no one has been clearly teaching this kind of message of True Love and the relationship between mind and body until Reverend Moon came to this world. For the first time there is clarity. Jesus said a lot of symbolic things which are true. Jesus said, for example, “Where is the Kingdom of Heaven? The Kingdom of Heaven is in the midst of you. The midst of you.” This is a great statement, but people were still lost by “in the midst of me”. What is the meaning of “in the midst of me”? There was no answer. It stopped there. Father has spelled it out completely. True Love is God’s quality. Wherever True Love dwells, God dwells and vice versa. Wherever God dwells there is True Love. And where True Love dwells, there God dwells. So when you become the possessor of True Love, you become the palace of True Love, there God dwells. So the Kingdom of Heaven is within you. Those of you who say, “I will never go to spirit world, never Father, I’m not going there. I don’t like to go there. I want to be here.” Those of you who have confidence please raise your hands. It’s a matter of time, just a matter of time.
Father so clearly knows what the spirit world is, what the rules are, and unless Father’s teaching is practiced on earth, it will not click in the spirit world. In other words there is a rail and you have to go on a perfect train to spirit world. Your body has to go on the rail, run on the rail of the spirit world. If you go with the wrong gauge wheels you will not be able to run on the rails in spirit world. You cannot change the rails. You have to change yourself. But when you go up to spirit world it is too late. You have to make a perfect rail here by listening to Father. You have to make True Love rails. Do you understand? True Love rails. The vibrations of True Love here on earth and in the spirit world are the same. So you can run on the same rail from here on earth straight to the spirit world. You don’t even have to change rails. The True Love terminal is the destination we have.
Father knows that rule so well. Father wants to teach you very, very clearly. There is no such a thing as self. Self doesn’t exist in the spirit world. Those who live without self, that is without selfishness, here on earth will fit perfectly on the spirit world rail. You will go straight into the Kingdom of Heaven. Father is a locomotive. A big locomotive pulling the train cars. Will you become one of the train cars behind Father? Do you want to become one? Do you want to have only one rail, or one that goes north and south, east and west and everywhere? (One!) Just one? So you only want one bus line in New York? From uptown to downtown, just one bus line? Is that good enough? As long as it is the same rail, you want the freedom to maneuver don’t you? In the spirit world subway, the rail is most scientific. All Father has to do is to push the button and Father can lead the train to all kind of directions. So Father is like the roller coaster driver going up and down. The twelve pearly gates are there. You are able and capable, so long as you follow Father, you are capable of going to or out of any gate and going in any gate. Inside the train you can sit together with God and lean over Him sharing an ice cream cone in a three-way ice cream cone party with God, True Parents and yourself. It could be a popcorn or ice cream party. It’s amazing I am telling you something the rest of the world could not believe! But you just listen all day like this and still have lots and lots of interest and joy and fun and laughter. I’m sure you are a bunch of kooks. That means you are a different race. What kind of race? True Love race. All right! The True Love race. You can be free anywhere when you are of the True Love race. Then absolute freedom is assured. Those who really want to follow Father wherever Father goes, raise your hands please. I have a problem. My children aren’t going to like that. Mother is not going to like that. If you all follow Father all the time, where is there room for my children or room for True Mother? But don’t worry about it, they have grown up, they are over twenty now.
Everything that Father needed to do here on earth as the Messiah and as the True Parent has been done! Done, period. Yesterday you were told restoration of the elder son’s position is done. Restoration of True Parents position done. Restoration of the kingship position-done. Furthermore Father also made the spirit world into the Cain position and you are the Abel. Spirit world must listen to you and be obedient to you. This was all done. All Father has to do now is the Unification of the Fatherland and that is only a little bit away. It is really only a matter of time. In the nick of time that will happen.
You know Father invited the communists. These are not the ordinary communists. They are congressmen, the hardline communists, fifty-five of them, Eastern Europe, twenty nine of them and they came for three nights and four days. During this time, their atheistic outlook on life has been completely changed. They came to see Father in East Garden, and this became their greatest joy, their greatest honor to be there. Other Russians envied them. Another group came yesterday, students and professors from Russia, and they said, “Oh, they met Reverend Moon in his home, and we can’t go there? Can we go there? Can we go there?” “No, no, no. You cannot.” “Oh no! Why can’t we?” In other words, their greatest joy is to go and see Father.
Now think about it. Father initially said, “Those who believe in God, raise your hands.” Only a few hands went up. Then after a two hour sermon Father said, “Those who do not believe in God, those who do not think the existence of God is there, raise your hands”. There were none whatsoever! One hundred percent. One hundred percent! So you see, when these hardline communists can be turned around in three nights and four days, think about it. If the opportunity can be given, through the television or the radio we can teach the entire world Divine Principle for one week, then the entire world can be turned around, yes or no? (Yes!) It’s a matter of teaching. Restoration in the beginning looks very hard but in the end it is not hard. It will be done quite quickly.
Father has inspired the creation of Washington television center by which we can telecast all over the world, all over the United States, all over the world through the satellite. Wherever you look you will see Father, you will see Divine Principle lecture, all of a sudden you will see the Principle of Creation, principle of give and take, the Coming of the Christ and children will say, “Mom, Mom, Mom, come over here and look at this! Drop everything.” So all the family will get together surrounding the television set listening to Divine Principle. Oh boy! That day is ahead of us. Just in the nick of time it will come.
Father has an instruction book of his instructions to you. Father is meticulous. He prepared every bit of instruction needed by blessed couples here. However, Father covered all those points, all those details meticulously already. Father will trust you, trust that you have recorded, taken a dictation, taken notes and you will go and fulfill it. And Father said, “You do it.”
Now Father is saying as the conclusion, unification between mind and body and unification between your family are the two primary goals for blessed couples, centering upon True Love of course. All Father’s four hours expounding why the mind is subject and the body has to obey the mind, centered upon True Love. All this has been said, and when you go.to hometown, you are becoming a model member. You are to become the saint of your family so that your family will be united upon you. You are going as the Tribal Messiah. But you do not only have the title, but your deeds and actions would actually impress your relatives and give them tremendous inspiration just like that last daughter-in-law. She already accomplished Tribal Messiah’s role, because she completely, naturally subjugated her clan. You will do the same. By doing so, Father said, you will not only be successful you are going to truly become more than just a Blessed couple, but complete the Tribal Messiah’s mission and you will be elevated to become heavenly citizens.
The textbook of the family, of Tribal Messiahship lies in the united three levels of grandparents, your parents and your couple united upon the True Love principle, mind and body principle. These are the backbone, the central model which only has to be expanded to other families, brothers and sisters, uncles and cousins and nephews and community people. Then you will become a Tribal Messiah. But you must become the Tribal Messiah first and serve your grandparents, serve your parents and you yourself become part of the ladder with three levels on it. The clan level represent your ancestors, your parents represent all the human family. The homeowner position is the parents position, and your place is their children. Those people combined in one take one home and represent three types of generations. Do you understand? Past generation, modern generation and the future generation. This is the textbook. Plan on leaving this kind of concept, using the four corner expansion of outside phenomena, atmosphere. Leading-grandparent’s age, parent’s age, your age. You are internally trained according to that textbook so you are connecting the grandparent, parent and true brother’s love and so make the phenomena, the atmosphere of heaven on earth. That kind of atmosphere connects immediately with the spirit world. Do you understand? You have to live in that kind of way. In your lifetime you have to follow that same course in your family. Where again you are realizing the four corners. Do you understand? The same system will connect everywhere and those trained will automatically connect with spirit world. Do you understand? You have to train in that way and make that kind of atmosphere. That is the point of going back to your home, the center of your Tribal Messiah territory. This is your mission. Do you understand?
How can you do it? Father did it. You follow the same formula. You step on the same step. Do you understand? (Yes). Find out. The restoration course you have to cultivate each day. Step on exactly the same way. From now on step on the Principle way. You are making the textbook, and after that you cultivate four corners for saving restoration. There are many obstacles. Two concepts. There is the Divine Principle way, following, step own way. Restoration way is to cultivate development. Stand in that center and you can… That’s all. In there you can find out family, tribe automatically, brotherhood. No boundary. Is that clear?
That kind of main concept is simple. All the instructions are boiling down to that one point. So today this conference was centered upon the Blessed family, the Blessed couple because now Father is giving you today and extraordinary mandate and responsibility. Father is drawing Korea now. That’s the Korean nation. This is the Unification Church, even other Christian churches united with the negative forces and came against the Unification Church. However, this situation has been changed. What happened now? The Unification plus became very big and other plusses became so small. Again, however, this minus is big, but the other minus is small. We are not only going to save ourselves. We are going to save this world, this country. The whole country is our goal. Under these circumstance Father has had a reshuffling of the leadership in Korea. The younger leaders have taken the Abel position and the older leadership have taken the Cain position. The new church leader is now Reverend Hong. He was assigned president of HSA-UWC.
The church’s responsibility is to go into the community to evangelize. Actually the Korean church’s origin come from North Korea. North Korea is the root. So if this group, this evangelism is successful then this can move the government. A dynamically powerful unit would be formed and that North Korean, Kim Il Sung, would have absolutely no place to stand. No place to stand.
Everything is divided up into three stages. There is the individual, family and tribe — horizontally speaking. There is the couple, the parents and the grandparents. So when you go to the country-side in Korea, we have what they call an administrative organization-governmental administrative organization. So let’s say you and your family are here, your village is here and little “li”, a little larger village, then you have a “rayon”-a little larger still. So there are three stages of sizes. When you go to the city, a city is called something different. It’s called “tong ban”. “Tong is not quite like a county but smaller, a precinct perhaps. “Ban” is like a small segment so that “tong ban” is like a segment of a precinct. So Father dispatched all members into tong ban, divided into smaller groups and spread them out. Father is concentrating on these smaller segments almost disregarding provinces and counties because every county has this. Every province has this. So when this evangelism is successful, this is all that matters.
Father really wants to move three-thousand four-hundred units, and by resurrecting these three-thousand four-hundred units you resurrect the nation. So starting from here, the mission is given here, then going down to all the extra family and then going up to this bigger circle which covers the entire country. When unification occurs at this level, this big circle becomes natural. Father made a system in Korea that every level of leadership going down to the very bottom, down to the family is a Tribal Messiah. Also another movement began to move non-Unification Church families. They were approached and convinced. They were given a gift-True Parents’ picture. They were told to put it up in their homes in a very prominent place.
So far spirit world has been Cain and yet in the elder brother’s position. Here on earth we have been in the younger brother position. Instead of assisting and supporting our need, what they have done is exploit to their own advantage. Spirit world, in other words, worked for themselves. They were selfish. But on the thirty-first Children’s, Day Father made a special declaration to the spirit world. He ordered the spirit world, “You should no longer do that kind of thing. The elder son’s position has been totally restored and so you must come down to assist. Period.” Why give True Parents’ pictures? True Parents’ picture is an identification that a home is in a way accepting the True Parents. So every morning the entire spirit world ancestors of that home come down and virtually bow down and have a morning bow, spiritually. Perhaps the family cannot see it with their physical eyes. But spirit world comes down in that home and so is connected to True Parents. Therefore Satan cannot be concerned with that place. He cannot touch it. Spiritually all satans will be expelled. So a picture of True Parents in any home will safeguard that family.
The amazing thing is that three o’clock in the morning spirit world ancestors will come down, and first bow down to True Parents’ picture and kick out all the satanic elements from that house. “We have to protect our generation,” the ancestors will say, “This is my children’s home. Satan, you have no business here. Get out.” The spirit world is in the archangel position. Our generation is Adam’s position. Originally the archangel protected Adam’s place. That is the perspective of the Creation. So now they are retaking their original position. From now you are subject. From now we can completely control the spiritual atmosphere.
Laying the foundation here is all there is. This is everything. What is a county? It consists of families. What are provinces all about? The cell of the province is the family. So when the family has been conquered, then everything else will be automatic. So church is in the mind position and the external movement is in the body’s position.
In Korea all the older generation members are moving into external duties and the younger members, younger leaders, those Abel types, are in charge of the Church. That is actually the elder son’s position-restored. How can we make mind-body, the religious world and political world, harmonious? After making the national base harmonious, then the world base will be no problem. Do you understand? The most difficult situation is the second place. This place. (Pointing to the board). That means that in terms of the family, nation and world-base the second place is the nation-base. Do you understand? Kim Il Sung is the second place problem, the second son, Abel-type problem. Jesus was also in the second place. Do you understand? How can Korea break up or separate? This part is the elder place and eventually will follow. All nations must be digested and become peacefully united. Internal and external will blend into one thus automatically stand in God’s place. The Israelites separated after Jesus died. In this time, they should completely combine into one nation. That means the Korean members stand on that Tribal Messiah’s base and automatically they will connect with Father and make this kind of foundation. After that Kim Il Sung, the worst father, cannot remain in the north part. Do you understand? Father doesn’t want to tear down Kim Il Sung. God wants to save that guy too. After saving him, all the communist world will be broken down. So even the worst people from the communist world will testify, “True Parents saved me.” Then all the communists can be saved in one go.
This is Korea’s situation. We are now emphasizing the family based upon this particular principle. In a way this side is the masculine, men’s position, more external, and this is more women’s responsibility. Christianity is in a way the women’s religion. Women are more ready to move the hearts of other people. So when you go back to your hometown, men will be in Cain’s position and women will be in Abel’s position. So all women will grab people one by one heartistically. Man represents the elders position. Man was made first. Eve was made second. So in restoration the hardest work is on Eve’s center, woman’s center.
So when you get back to your home town, you do that. That’s the reason for all the blessed couples to come this time. Do you follow. This principle will apply all over the world and the United States is the beginning place of the application of this principle. Do you follow? Do you think that our destiny is to return home or not? (Yes!) If you don’t have your homecoming then you cannot be registered in the Kingdom of Heaven You name will not be found upstairs. Do you follow? So registration will begin from your home town, as a Tribal Messiah.
So just like Jesus’ organization had twelve apostles, seventy disciples, one hundred-twenty disciples, you organize in the same fashion. That’s the way Tribal Messiahship will be accomplished. So if Korea doesn’t do the job, we will do it. Father has given instructs in Korea about this most fundamental truth. If they are not successful, you will make it successful. Teach them a lesson. Do you follow? You know how important it is to return home to your hometown. The Fall of man came to the home, therefore in the final stages, restoration must begin at home. We have no barriers. No tribal barrier. No other barrier. You will just go straight home. As Father said, the three stages of home is your textbook so follow that textbook and fulfill your Tribal Messiah’s role.
In Korea our members are going to the small villages and will have one evangelical meeting and several days of beautiful, successful Divine Principle seminars. When there is a great deal of response they will go to another village and another and another. So the governor will be there in that kind of ground-level evangelical meeting. The county chief will be there. The precinct chief will be there because they all belong to some family. They belong to some village.
Centering upon Father you have the trinity system don’t you? Actually Father is in the top position. Father is in the parents’ position. The trinity means the three children of Noah and Adam. Do you understand? Therefore you are not a trinity actually. With Father in the center a four position foundation is created like Noah’s family where Noah and Noah’s wife had three sons and three daughters-eight members of the family. There are eight people in your trinity including Father, do you understand? In Adam’s time it was the same. In Jesus’ time it was the same. There were three main disciples centering on Jesus. Quickly create eight members of the family. This is not Father’s concept. It is the Principle view concept. Do you follow? By doing this you will be greater than Jesus. Secondly, by engaging in this truly nitty, gritty and also beautiful and sacred family responsibility, you can go direct from the family to the Kingdom of Heaven. By doing so you will get the direct, non-stop flight to Heaven. What do you think, you are in a greater position than Jesus, yes or no? [Yes!] Yes!
There is nothing else left to do. Nothing else. So after organizing this, Father expects you will get down to work and trusts you will do that. Then what shall Father do? Father is going to go around the world. He is going to deal with all the heads of state of the world. He wants to visit Brazil, South America, Africa, you name it. Father will bring with him the most Abel type, the most distinguished diplomats or head-of-state, the greatest professors, and bring the greatest journalists, and if these people move with Father, then any country will have to pay attention and move at the highest possible levels. Father will start at the president’s residence and will use the national TV centers and radio centers, no problem. Already many high level people contact me. Many high-level state-leaders contact me. Many high-level media world people contact me. At one time the famous people tried to hit me. The heads-of-state hit at me, the media hit at me. But they just broke their bones! Their backbone was broken! They are no problem. I have made a famous foundation everywhere. You think about it. Now I have the kind of authority so people come to me and say, “Forgive me for what I said. I want to invite you now.” To accommodate them Father will need an airplane. What shall we buy? A big one or small one? 747 or 707? Why? [Concorde]. We will fill the seats and everywhere we go we will be welcome. They will even open their television stations.
Every time Father makes a plan it is successful. It’s all a matter of preparation. Already with one telephone call it can all begin immediately. No problem. Who made this foundation? [Father]. For whom did he make that foundation? For you. For you. Centering on you he made that foundation. That’s true.
Who will buy that airplane? [We will!] You will buy that or Father will? You? How much does a 747 cost? How much? Father has investigated this already. You are ignorant. But Father knows. [How much Father?] Not much money! Are you ready to pay? Bring up the check book and we will tell you how much! [Laughter] When you think about Father’s way, there is no problem in the future. How do you think about the future. Do you feel hope or despair? [Hope!] There is only one time like this when True Parents are here. There is only one such time in history. In the past there was no such time. In the future there will be no such time. How happy are the people born at this time? How could you choose to get out at this time? Think of all the people of history-they can only get results through you. You have to think, “I am representing history. I am representing the future and the next generations.” That is the kind of value you have. You don’t have to have the best face. A bad face is okay. Your “content” is what is most important. Amazing value is hidden there. Do you understand? How much do you understand? How happy are you? Endlessly happy, happy forever?
You are ripened fruit. Therefore you have seed inside. Go out and plant it. Plant it so that you clone yourself. When you plant a new seed, do you just want to plant it in barren ground? No, you want to fertilize it first with smelly fertilizer and then put rich topsoil on it. Do you only have to plough the desert-like sand and then plant the seed? [No!] The first time you need fertilizer, even if it is very smelly. That is the most hopeful way. Bamboo shoots grow so fast once they start. This is the hopeful way.
So Father is not going to rest. The next ten year’s program is already secured. Father has already planned the ten years schedule. There is a lot of work to do. Connecting all the heads-of-state and making one world truly under God. So Father has to travel, yes or no? [Yes!] Father made all the foundation that is needed for these ten years. So those who pledge to Father, “I am going hometown to become true ancestors, God-centered ancestors of my family tree and become the Tribal Messiah in my hometown”, those Blessed couples pledging to Father are receiving another blessing. Those who are not here, pity! But you are here, and Father is giving you a special blessing. Those who will pledge that you will give your life and fortune and sacred honor to accomplish this mission for the sake of our True Parents’ victory, your Tribal Messiah’s victory so you become true ancestors of your family, now those who pledge say “Amen” and raise your hands. Will you do it, yes or no? [Yes! Amen!] One more time. [Yes! Amen!] One more time. [Yes! Amen!]
