The providence of salvation is the providence of restoration which is equal to the providence of recreation. Of course, the providence of restoration is through indemnity. In this process there is a lot of waste. The meaning of the restoration through indemnity means that we restore the original place and position which was lost because of the Fall of Man. Therefore this means the process of recreation. Humankind lost the original creation which God made. So humankind has to recreate that original state. In order to do that we have to understand the principle by which God originally created.
One of the principles of God’s creation in the beginning was that God needed a love partner. However, in modern theology there is no such concept. God needing a partner? People do not understand that. We all are seeking love. We all have life. We all have lineage. In order to continue our lineage men and women contain sperm and eggs. We all have conscience within. But can we see life, love and lineage? No one can. Are you able to see your conscience? Even though these things are contained within you, still you are not able to see them. We cannot see them nor touch them. Why can’t we feel their existence? When we examine our body, in every square centimeter of skin there is one gravity. This kind of gravity is always upon us, but because of total balance we are unaware of this gravity. Our eyes continually blink and yet we don’t notice because we are totally one with this function. If we place our hand on our heart we can feel our heart beating. With a stethoscope it sounds like a bomb exploding. However, in our daily lives we don’t even notice that. Yet if Father were to touch one strand of Mr. Kim’s hair he will immediately feel that. The reason being that it breaks the balance. But because our heartbeat is in total balance with our body, we don’t even think about it for months at a time. Isn’t this true? (Yes) Where there is perfect balance you don’t feel any difference. When we put our palms together, and we put something in between, when it reaches the level of perfect balance you don’t feel anything in between.
Whom do you resemble? (God) Well, before talking about God, first of all you resemble your parents. In many ways we all resemble our parents, but we don’t feel that because we are one with them. We all have Love, Life, Lineage and Conscience within. The reason we often don’t feel them is because we are in total balance with them. These four aspects Love, Life, Lineage and Conscience resemble God. God Himself has Love, Life, Lineage and Conscience within Him. But because they are in total balance, then God doesn’t feel them either. It is logical to say that although God has Love, Life, Lineage and Conscience, He cannot feel the excitement, love and joy by Himself. That is why He felt the necessity to create His love partner. God wanted to experience the powerful stimulation of Love, Life, Lineage and Conscience. So He created His love partner.
God created the environment first in preparation for humankind. Without the four basic elements of sunlight, air, soil and water, nothing can exist on the Earth. If we take away sunlight, for example, life cannot be sustained. If we eliminate water, life cannot be sustained. Each one of them is necessary. If we look at this sister’s head, it appears to be a solid thing, but if we look inside it there is light, water, air and an element of soil. Within the environment there is always a formula of subject and object. Even within the mineral world the subject and object relationship exists, plus ion, minus ion. This is the formula. This is true within the plant kingdom, the same principle, stamen and pistil, the animal world, male and female and humankind, man and woman. All of us exist within the boundary of this formula.
The reason God created this entire world in the relationship of subject and object was because God wanted to see the achievement of the love relationship. The love relationship requires a subject and an object. Without subject and object we cannot expect to find the give and take action which creates the stimulating power of love. That is why, even in the mineral kingdom, there is always this power of give and take relationship. This give and take action creates a spherical motion which exists eternally, centered upon True Love. In the plant kingdom, the same action, stamen and pistil, having give and take, centered on True Love, make the stimulation of Love power, Life power, Lineage power, Conscience power, feeling everything, male and female connecting, centered on love, all connecting to God, the original root, vertically connecting. Horizontally, lower levels go up to high level places where the center is true humankind. All love is where total plus is man, total minus is woman.
When we look at the world of creation there are many different levels of subject and object relationships that occur. If there is a higher dimensional give and take action it will always absorb the lower dimension give and take action of subject and object. When we observe the plants and trees growing, they are actually absorbing the nutrients from the mineral kingdom. When they absorb the nutrients from the mineral kingdom then insects and animals, in turn, absorb these plants. Insects eat the vegetables and small birds eat the small insects. Larger birds, such as eagles and hawks, absorb the smaller birds. The same is true within the animal kingdom. Who is the king of the entire animal kingdom? Human beings. In fact, human beings are the most brutal of all because they kill animals and eat them. In this case, who is supposed to absorb human beings? God.
Darwin’s theory of evolution claims that the strong eat the weak. We may feel that to be brutal. If we stick with this evolutionary theory then the strong can always kill the weak and there should be no crime involved. However, that evolutionary theory does not contain the Principle or theory of creation. The ultimate purpose of all levels of creation is the original point of God’s Creation of Love, Life, Lineage and Conscience. This is true even for the mineral kingdom. Every aspect of creation, plant kingdom, animal kingdom and humankind all have the same goal, the same terminal point, which is the original point of God’s Life, Love, Lineage and Conscience.
However, there is a certain route, or process or ladder to reach that original point. Minerals cannot reach that point all by themselves. Rather, they have to go through plants, by being absorbed by the plants. The plants have to be absorbed by insects and small animals. Then small animals are absorbed by larger animals. The larger animals are absorbed by human beings. Then in theory they will become part of human beings and reach that final goal together with human beings. When minerals are being absorbed by the plants, the plants are in the position of plus and the minerals in the position of minus. The ultimate goal of the minerals is to reach that original point of God’s Love, Life, Lineage and Conscience. In order to be absorbed by the plant world they take many different forms: flowers, grasses, trees, fruits. Through this they feel proud to become a beautiful flower or delicious fruit in order to reach that original point.
In the same way, plants feel pride in becoming part of the animal kingdom which will lead them to that original goal. Within the animals, they desire to be absorbed by a higher being so that they can also reach that original goal. But if there is a choice, the animals will desire to be eaten by human beings because human beings have the most direct access to this goal. All aspects of creation desire to reach that original Life, Love, Lineage and Conscience palace. By doing so all of these animals, plants and minerals desire to become a part of human beings’ sexual organs, which is the original Love, Life, Lineage and Conscience palace. How precious this place is. All these created beings, the minerals, plants and animals, are all being mobilized to complete this substantial portion of the Living God, which is our sexual organ, the ancestors’ sexual organ.
There are two kinds of sexual organs: male and female. God originally divided the sexual organ into two, creating a little distance, so that their drawing together and meeting would be like an explosion. This is where the stimulating excitement would take place. This is what God wanted. Why were we given sexual organs? Because of Life, Love, Lineage and Conscience. Without going through that particular organ we cannot expect to have Life, Love, Lineage and Conscience. We all have these four assets within, but a woman alone cannot feel the excitement of these God-given assets. However, if the most ugly young man should appear and stimulate her assets of Life, Love, Lineage and Conscience then these assets would explode like an atom bomb in front of him. And if the boy happened to be handsome then the power of the explosion would be even greater!
In nature, we can observe the same phenomena. When it rains, what do we see? Lightning and thunder! That is the natural world. That is a marriage-like phenomenon in the world of weather. This is Nature’s way of marriage. Even though a man by himself as the subject has the assets of Life, Love, Lineage and Conscience within, nothing happens without his love partner, woman. In order for human beings to have all of this exciting and stimulating joy and pleasure, the entire creation, beginning with mineral, plant and animal kingdoms, are being mobilized for that purpose, stage by stage, ultimately in order to reach that ideal of God’s love. The ultimate purpose of any small mineral is to become a small element of the human sexual organ. No matter how insignificant its role may be, nevertheless that is its goal. Which was easier for God to create, our five senses or our sexual organs? In the sexual organs, God created love, created humankind, created lineage, created conscience and the second fruit, a baby. Without that, all of the world of creation would cease. Until now humanity has not realized that the sexual organ is the most precious place. The sexual organ is the truth factory. This is true for you professors also. What good is all your knowledge without your sexual organs?
This is enough for you today for Father’s birthday message. This really is the conclusion. (Laughter. Applause) However, there is one thing that we need to clearly understand. The subject does not exist for the subject. Man’s sexual organ does not exist for man. It exists eternally for his wife. There is absolutely only one owner eternally. Not two. Is that clear? (Applause) The woman’s sexual organ is absolutely only one, her husband. No power on Earth nor in Heaven can change this. Reverend Moon cannot change this. No matter how much power True Parents have they cannot change this. No matter how powerful God is He cannot change this. This is forever, unchanging power.
The sexual organ is the King’s owner place, palace of the Life King’s place, Love King’s place, Lineage King’s place, Conscience King’s place. The place connecting to all human history. Do you understand? (Yes) Do you clearly understand? (Yes) The owner of man’s sexual organ is absolutely, eternally his wife. Everyone has this kind of precious place. It cannot be exchanged by anyone. It is the number one precious place, place of number one value. It is absolutely the King’s Authority place. It has that kind of value. The original sexual organ place. It is even positioned in a safe place from all harm. From the original settlement place the original formula can expand to the nation and the world, and on to the expansion of the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. This is the formula world. How can this be denied? Why do you need the Bible? Rather, we need the concepts of the original world. God’s truth is high-level, number one. There is power there. Even a small woman can control God with love power! With heart and body we control and occupy our love partner, our property. Centered on True Love, they become combined into one property. “Partner” means “mine forever.” My love partner cannot be exchanged any place, any time. God descends and connects. Forever. The owner of woman’s sexual organ is absolutely, eternally her husband. No child wants to have two mothers or two fathers. They absolutely want only one. Therefore absolutely, there can be no divorce. The fallen world means that this formula is completely broken down and ownership has been exchanged. Those of you who want to have divorce in your life, please raise your hands. How about free sex? How about the consumption of alcohol and drugs? How about those who want to become gay or lesbian? That is the road that will drive you to the bottom of Hell which is against the Principle of Creation. Therefore, do you have the right to fool around? (NO) Absolutely not.
Reverend Moon is teaching such a deep truth to humanity, and yet the Unification Church has been given many dirty labels by the world. Do you think that God is happy about that? (No) Do you think that God will come forward and destroy the Unification Church or will He help it to prosper? The reason that the Unification Church has grown and prospered in the face of the worst kind of persecution in this world is because God took the fortune from those who persecuted us, and blessed the Unification Church with their fortune instead. That is how we have been prospering in this world.
If the people of America were to propose to Reverend Moon that he give up the position of True Parents and become the President of the United States of America, do you think that Father would welcome such a proposal or would he reject it? (Reject it) The True Parents are forever, absolutely only one. How can that ever be exchanged for anything? Never. Do you think that Father is happy sharing this kind of story with you? In the secular world many people oppose Father when he proclaims “True Parents.” But they are the ones who will decline eventually.
In the Garden of Eden the original couple, the original family was lost. Therefore, we have to rediscover that original couple and family by walking the road of indemnity. That is why, in these last days, Reverend Moon came to this world as True Parents and gives blessings to humankind so that their sins can be forgiven and build original couples and the original family in this world once again. That is why Reverend Moon is holding a 3.6 Million Couples Blessing this year. (Applause) You are clapping with excitement but Father feels miserable. Because when we go out to the world, who recognizes the value of the Blessing? How many people? Father has overcome all the hurdles and difficulties all of these years and has laid a strong enough foundation to launch this kind of providential campaign this year of 3.6 Million Couples Blessing. That is why you are now clapping and many dignitaries in the secular world recognize it. However, Father had to pay an incredible amount of indemnity to do so.
Do you think that God has eyes? (Yes) Have you seen them? (No) Then how do you know? Because we resemble God and so God must resemble us. Does He have ears, nose, mouth, hands and fingers? (Yes) In observing this world, where can God find the ideal man, ideal family, ideal tribe, nation and world that He originally desired to see and have? He cannot find it anywhere. Because He cannot tolerate this evil world God closes His eyes, ears and even pinches His nose so that He does not have to smell this rotten world in its present condition. God cannot destroy humanity because He is a God of love. Instead of destroying humankind He turns His back and stays far away trom humankind in their present situation.
We must understand that Adam and Eve gave birth to their children only after being chased out from the Garden of Eden. The children of Adam and Eve had nothing to do with God from their inception. These children had nothing to do with God’s Life, Love and Lineage. Therefore, the world that they created was the world of Hell. This is our present reality. No matter how famous you may be as a minister or theologian here today, unless we can clean up this mess there is no one who will be able to enter into the Kingdom of God. Reverend Moon has the right to proclaim that this is the absolute truth. Someone may declare that Reverend Moon is like a dictator insisting upon his own dogma. Well, if you don’t believe it, when you die and go to the spiritual world you will see who is right.
Reverend Moon has absolute confidence in this truth from God. That is why, even if all five billion people of this world oppose him he really doesn’t care. True Parents are only one couple in this world among five billion people. Even scholars such as Dr. Rubenstein need True Parents, don’t they? More than the teachings, Reverend Moon himself should be the question to you. Most valuable is the substantial body, not truth. Body has all truth, concentrated, making oneness. The center is the so-called flesh-body. Within it is finger-truth, hand-truth, leg-truth, and so on.
At the time of the Garden of Eden it was Eve who began the deviation away from God. I am now going to speak about the real historical background of the Israelites. This kind of content has been hidden until now. In the beginning of human history Eve committed sin. Since Eve became the first sinner we can call her a bad woman. Generally speaking, is it men or women who actually push the world in the wrong direction? Generally speaking, wherever you may go it is easy to notice that women like to take it easy, have a good time, eat delicious food, and wear luxurious and expensive clothing, all of which Satan likes the most. They like to boastfully walk down Fifth Avenue in New York City with their expensive clothing, enticing men to look and admire them. “Come to my bosom.” “Come to Satan’s king place.” So we can generally conclude that women are the first targets of Satan. You are the connection to Satan more than men.
Women like to wear jewelry on their fingers, around their neck, and on their ears. In a way, women act like a necklace to men by hanging around their neck. (Laughter) This is true, because women are generally shorter than men. This is the reason why women like necklaces. [Mr. Kim: Father is giving a very interesting anecdote here] During the Vietnam war thousands of American soldiers went to assist the democratic side of Vietnam. After the war was over many soldiers returned home. One particular wife who was awaiting her husband’s return had prepared herself in expensive clothes and jewelry and went to wait for her husband to arrive. But he didn’t come out from the airplane. Everyone there seemed to find their husbands and left from there happily. However, she was unable to find her husband. But at the end of the line there was a man who seemed much smaller than her husband, was not as handsome as she remembered and a little shabby looking. He walked by her but she didn’t recognize him and then she looked more carefully and realized this was her husband. Once she realized that this was her husband she ran to him and jumped on him and hung around his neck like a necklace, without any hesitation. At that very moment the husband was smiling and embraced his wife so happily. While they were hugging one another the wife raised her right leg and they went spinning around 360 degrees. In Father’s mind, this is the best piece of art. (Applause)
When this happens to you women, you should not have a big waist and tummy, because if you have big tummy or big waist, it is uncomfortable for you and your husband to make a circle. For that reason women should have slim waists. And keep it that way. This is one of the ways in which you can make your lives more exciting and happy. Whenever your husband returns home from a long journey, or home from work, don’t just ignore him. Rather run to him and give him a hug around his neck and make yourself like a necklace. This is how you will have a much happier life together. You ministers try it. If your wife is wearing a long pearl neckiace, while you are spinning around, and hugging, this necklace will follow you. How beautiful a phenomena. Wonderful. Amen.
Why do you think that women like to wear rings more than men? The ring and the finger represent the sexual organs of men and women. Wearing a ring is like the joining of these two love organs. In order to keep it safe the woman has to put the ring deeply onto her finger so that it cannot be taken off. (Laughter) After you hear Father explaining this to you in such a fun way, can you ever forget it? (No) Now you wives remember all what Father has taught you today when you wear your jewelry. This is for your love. It doesn’t matter whether you are young or old, all women live their lives hanging onto their husband’s love. If you lose the grip on the spouse’s love that means that your family is broken down. Is this true? (Yes) Do you follow Father? (Yes)
Regarding the restoration through indemnity, was Eve’s behavior in the Garden of Eden good or bad? (Bad) How many male figures existed in the Garden of Eden? (Lucifer, Gabriel, Michael, Adam and God) That is correct. Five male figures. How many women? (One) Only one woman. Do you think that God felt secure to leave Eve alone in the middle of the Garden of Eden? (No) Against whom do you think you would try to protect this particular woman knowing that this woman is supposed to grow to be your spiritual spouse? When a master leaves his home to go on a journey, usually he will leave some instructions or command to the closest person to him. Either his wife or children. Not his servant or his driver. That is why God gave His commandment to Adam and Eve not to eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. He did not leave this commandment with the Archangel or anyone else. What is the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil. It is symbolic of the woman’s sexual organ.
Humankind was unaware until now that the fruit of the knowledge of good and evil meant the fruit which had the potential to become good or evil. There is no literal tree of good and evil. This is symbolic of woman’s sexual organ. The commandment should have remained with the woman. God’s original lineage was reversed through the Fall to Satan’s lineage and Satan’s tradition. Eve was in the position of God’s daughter and His daughter-in-law as she was supposed to become Adam’s wife. Also she was supposed to be in the position of Adam’s mother and God’s relative. However, she lost everything because of the misuse of her sexual organ. Her original position was to stand as grandmother, mother, wife, and daughter. After the Fall everything was cut down and so God’s side no longer had a woman figure. Because of this failure the religions of the world generally emphasize celibacy.
God began the providence of restoration from Adam’s family all the way to restore the original state of the Garden of Eden where the restored Adam and Eve could establish the ideal original family and expand this to the ideal tribe, ideal nation and ideal world. Therefore Jesus came as the Messiah, but even Jesus was unable to fulfill this mission completely. Therefore, humankind is still awaiting the Lord of the Second Advent. After the Fall, Adam and Eve were split two ways and this split remained throughout history all the way down to Jesus. But at the time of Jesus, the Israelites and Judaism were supposed to become totally united centered on Jesus so that the ideal world could be built. But due to their disbelief, this mission was unaccomplished. Even after the coming of Jesus the entire world was divided into right and left wings which eventually became communism and democracy. Reverend Moon came to this world to reunite these two worlds. Now he is pushing to have humanity build one world, not a divided world. That is the goal that he has been pursuing. The divided world should become one and make a complete circle.
In order for anyone to be able to enter into the Kingdom of God you should have absolute unity between your mind and body and between yourself and your entire family.
Remember, you as an individual are not able to enter into the Kingdom of God. You need your family in order to enter. From this perspective should Jesus have married or not? (Yes) We lost everything at the time of Adam’s family. At the time of Jesus the entire nation of Israel and Judaism should have worked together to form Jesus’ family so that the entire nation and people could enter the Kingdom together.
Immediately following World War II, Great Britain was in the position of the mother nation, America was in the position of Abel and France was in the position of Cain. England was an island nation, surrounded by the ocean. In a sense the island is always longing to become part of the mainland. The United States was probably the first nation to be established by the Protestants. The nation of France stood in the position of enemy nation to both England and America. However, these three enemy nations became one right after World War II. The real force to unite them was the power of Christianity. Christianity represents the bride culture. Christianity means bride culture place. Bride wants to meet bridegroom. Without the bride, the bridegroom has no value.
Because of Jesus’ crucifixion only spiritual salvation was accomplished. Christianity needed the substantial body, the substantial figure as Lord. On the other hand, three axis nations existed at the time of World War II: these were Japan, Germany and Italy. Japan was an island nation like England. Hitler stood in the Abel position on Satan’s side. He killed the Judeo-Christian world. He was the worst kind of man. After World War II, centered upon Christianity, the unification of the three allied nations came about. The reason God created the unification of the Christian world was for the sake of the coming bridegroom. England was in the position of the mother nation and she bore a son, America. France was in the position of the enemy nation, Cain’s position. The mother nation and Cain and Abel combined into one.
If those allied nations had received the Lord of the Second Advent then the entire world could have been restored right then and there. However, they were waiting for the Lord to come on the clouds. The Christians were unaware of the true reality. Just as in the time of Jesus, the Israelites were waiting for Elijah to return in a fiery chariot. But, in reality John the Baptist came in the position of Elijah. The Christians made the same mistake right after World War II. They were expecting the Lord of the Second Advent to appear on the clouds. However, they should have realized that Reverend Moon came as the Lord of the Second Advent to work with them and restore humanity. (Applause)
Reverend Moon had to come in the flesh in order to indemnify the time of Jesus. Nobody knew how to unite the communist and free world. The only one who was able to do this was Reverend Moon. However, he was rejected. Jesus wanted to embrace the right and left hand thieves, representing the right and left wings, in his time in order to build one world under God. Unfortunately, this did not take place. This caused the right and left wings to be divided right there and eventually become the communist and democratic or free worlds. Reverend Moon’s mission was to unite them together and to re-build the one world under God, the original world which God had intended from the very beginning.
The restoration of the individual, family, tribe, nation and world was done by Father at every level, one level at a time, making a circle of 360 degrees, completing the entire circle. Through the Blessing ceremony Father is accomplishing this cleanup job from the individual, family, tribal, national and worldwide family. Once this 3.6 Million Couples Blessing is accomplished within six months we can even undertake a 36 Million Couples Blessing. (Applause) If we reach our goal this year, this Blessing will become like a fad, sweeping like a heavenly wind throughout the entire world. Then students will begin asking their teachers the meaning of the Unification Church marriage. They will want to know: is the Unification Church marriage better than secular marriages? What kind of response do you think that their teachers will give to them? (Yes)
At the beginning of human history, this evil seed was sown in the Garden of Eden. In these last days the secular world is reaping these evil fruits represented by all of the decadence of morality in this world. However, God cannot intervene directly in this, just as He was not able to intervene at the time of Adam and Eve’s fall. Only True Parents have the right and knowledge to intervene at this juncture. (Applause) No matter how powerful God may be, still He is not able to deal with fallen couples. Do you understand? (Yes) They represent evil parents, evil love, evil life, evil lineage and evil conscience and those four characteristics cannot connect with God’s ideal viewpoint. Therefore, God cannot touch them. With the appearance of True Parents the Blessing of marriage can be given and upon that foundation God is able to touch everything, because of True Love Lineage. The fallen world does not connect with God’s blood lineage. Through the Blessing of True Parents humankind can reconnect with God’s original blood lineage.
There may exist those who are older than True Parents even those who died long ago, who, horizontally speaking, stand in the position of Father’s elders, but once True Parents appear in this world they all become True Parent’s children and grandchildren downwards, because there has to be only one line established to God. Until this time two lines have existed. True Parents are needed in order to restore this satanic line and make one line to God. From God’s viewpoint, fallen children exist in this world and they are supposed to be restored. The restoration through indemnity occurs through the restoration of the satanic lineage so that they are able to stand behind the Abel heavenly lineage line and form one straight line behind True Parents. This is how they can follow True Parents into the Kingdom. The Last Days means the crossing point of these two lines. The heavenly line goes above and the satanic line goes below.
Centering on this crossing point we can expand from the individual, family, tribal, national and worldwide level. This directional line is True Love. This angle will represent individual, family, tribal, national and world levels as the angle increases. In the Last Days we have to totally negate ourselves. Otherwise we will never be able to join the heavenly line. Negation should occur at eight different stages. This is why most religions have encouraged individuals to leave their families, their societies and follow the path of God and live as monks and nuns, because God had been alone up until this point and True Parents had not yet appeared. Therefore, how could humanity marry and have children?
Even some religious people are practicing homosexuality today. Who knows how many of them have HIV. On the contrary, the Unification Church is instructing its membership to become tribal messiahs of their clans and, as Blessed couples, have their relatives all receive the Blessing in True Parents’ name. Even you prominent theologians here today cannot deny this teaching.
There are two different lines of lineage. On Satan’s side there is the elder son, elder king and elder parents. This group has to be restored back in order to rejoin the heavenly lineage. Simply speaking, we have to restore the secular families back to the heavenly families. This is what is needed. From God’s point of view there are two different kinds of mothers and children. In order to restore them it requires that the younger son take the elder sonship, father should become the son and the son should become the father. Grandparents should become the grandchildren, grandchildren become the grandparents. This kind of reversal is needed.
Adam was in the position of head of the family. Jacob was in the position of head of the tribe. In Jacob’s time, he had to implement this course of restoration which was the reverse course. In the Garden of Eden Eve cheated God’s elder son, Adam and God. Through this she turned over the entire family to Satan. Therefore at the time of Jacob, Isaac’s wife Rebecca, who was the mother of Jacob, cheated her husband, father and elder son figure, Esau. Rebecca took this family back to the elder son and God. This was the reversal of this course. That is the course of indemnity. Rebecca, in Eve’s position, had to take the indemnity way and reverse the course.
Israel means victory. What is the meaning of this victory? The reversal of the lineage from Satan back to God’s side. At the time of Tamar, she was married to two of Judah’s sons. Both of them died without leaving children. Tamar felt the importance of the continuation of this lineage and knew she was the one to carry it on. She wanted to marry the third son. However, Judah forbade it. Risking her life, Tamar deceived Judah, her father-in-law, into having a sexual relationship with her by disguising herself as a prostitute in order to continue this lineage. She conceived twins, who fought in her womb to be born first. God told her that two nations were fighting in her womb. The restoration which took place at the time of Jacob between the elder and younger brother, now took place directly inside the womb of Tamar between her two sons.
Through this complicated course of restoration through indemnity, at the time of Jesus mother Mary had to indemnify the course of Tamar before she could give birth to Jesus. This is the brief history of the Old Testament era and the dawning of the New Testament era. By the time Jesus was born the Roman Empire had spread throughout the world. Therefore, Jesus needed the national level foundation in order to deal with the Roman Empire. If Jesus had not died, but rather had been supported and accepted by the Israelites and Judaism, then and only then, upon that foundation he could have conquered the Roman Empire within seven years. However, he was crucified. After murdering their True Parents, the Jewish people have been wandering throughout human history; since that time millions of Jews have been killed.
Everyone, regardless of their nationality, race, or religion, from the individual level to the worldwide level, all need True Parents. Once you truly understand the value of True Parents then the entire world can be united. That is the key.
We need to clearly understand the relationship between mother Mary and Zachariah’s family. If Jacob’s family was the starting point at the tribal level, then Mary and Zachariah’s family were the starting point of the national level providence. In the family of Jacob, Rachel should have become the first wife, not Leah. However, Leah became the first wife. In this regard, that particular providence failed. The mother was supposed to assist her daughters so that order could be established in the correct way. However, this was reversed. If Rachel’s mother had been totally united with Rachel and had pushed Leah away, then at the tribal level Rachel could have become the first wife of Jacob. The same mistake took place at the time of Jacob because of these two wives. At the time of Adam and Eve, Eve was supposed to become the first wife of Adam, but only after she had made a relationship with Satan did she become Adam’s wife. This meant the order was reversed. Same situation.
At the time of Jesus, on the national level, in the family of Zachariah this order had to be straightened out. The position of the original wife was taken by Elizabeth, Zachariah’s wife. Elizabeth’s son was John the Baptist. However, through them alone there was no way to complete the restoration. There had to exist the younger sister’s position in order to establish the heavenly lineage. Because of the Fall of Man, restoration always has to come about through the second wife, the concubine line. That has been the history of restoration.
In Jacob’s family, Leah hated her younger sister Rachel and she completely dominated Jacob and produced ten children, whereas Rachel had only two children. However, Elizabeth, the wife of Zachariah actually volunteered to introduce Mary to Zachariah because of her revelation from God. She allowed Mary to stay in her family for three months. A woman doesn’t become pregnant through staying overnight. If you really research into the Bible you will see this. Therefore, after three months of staying in Zachariah’s household Mary became pregnant. Mary had the responsibility to indemnify the failure of Eve as well as the failure of Rachel and Leah. Therefore while she was pregnant she had to deceive her husband figure (Joseph) as well as her father figure.
Because of Mary’s success in reversing the course which had failed at the time of Eve, Rebecca and Tamar, now the son she had in her womb at the national level was sanctified. That is why she was able to give birth to the Holy Son of God, Jesus. Jesus was born completely free of Satanic accusation. God controlled everything concerning his conception and birth. He was God’s begotten true son; begotten son, begotten father, begotten king, like Adam. Turn back everything to God from Satan’s world. There is no way out from the restoration through indemnity. We have to go through that course. The message that Father wanted Mr. Peter Kim to read to you was given this year on the Day of the Victory of Love. Briefly Father will explain to you the meaning of the Day of the Victory of Love and we will conclude today.
Because Jesus Christ went to the spiritual world without establishing his own family in this physical world, he has to come back again. Because Jesus did not have his family foundation here on the Earth he remains in Paradise, not in the Kingdom of Heaven. On the cross Jesus promised the right hand thief that he would be with him in Paradise that day. He did not say the Kingdom of Heaven. Why? Because the Kingdom of Heaven is only open to the family level perfected people. [One of the Christian ministers present said: “I now understand better than I did before”] (Applause)
The meaning of the Second Advent is the Lord coming down to this Earth to find his bride and establish his family. Because Jesus lost his bride in this physical world he has to return again to this physical realm. Jesus gave the keys of Heaven to Peter and told him, “Whatever is tied up on Earth will be tied up in Heaven. Whatever is untied on Earth will be untied in Heaven.” This means that this world is now completely decadent. Therefore these problems have to be solved in this realm. God has to restore His family, nation and world here in this physical world to begin with. Where did God lose His family, His tribe, His nation, His world? Up in Heaven? No. Right here on this Earth! Disease erupted right here in the physical world. So it has to be cured here. We have to untie the knot here in this physical world. (Amen) That Amen from Christian ministers sounded too weak. (AMEN) (Applause)
Most religious leaders and Christian leaders do not clearly understand the spiritual world. The physical and spiritual worlds are like two palms together. Counterparts of each other which should become one. Unless we have total unity between mind and body we cannot unite the spiritual and physical worlds. Do you want your love partner to hold double standards? (No) Do you think that God’s mind and body are separated? (No) God is absolutely one, and upon that foundation He created this entire world. Because of the Fall of Man, only human beings are still separated. Therefore we must become one between mind and body. Once we are absolutely one, then and only then, can we become united with God. That is the only hope that we have. Satan always tries to divide us. Wherever conflict exists, there Satan resides.
Within Christianity there is always conflict. Between Catholics and Protestants there is always fighting. God does not stay with them. Whenever you are divided one from another, God is not present. The beginning point of peace is within your own mind and body. The war between the mind and body is the most fearful of all wars. We need a cease-fire. You must control your body no matter how difficult the situation may be. The problem with fallen human beings is that their five senses all operate in two different ways instead of one absolute way. Do you young people here understand this clearly? (Yes) The problem is your inability to unite your minds and bodies. The mind is so sorrowful to have lost God’s True Love because of the fallen body. Do you American women understand? (Yes)
America and the Christian world have been my enemies. They have wanted to kill me until now. But my desire is to save this enemy. The most fearful enemy is our own body. Because our body connects to satanic love, life and lineage, we must be vigilant in controlling our body’s desires. You all have been out fundraising where you must be humbled. This is a most serious issue. In the fallen sense, the sexual organs of men and women are their worst enemy. Most fearful place. This is because of the Fall.
In the Last Days, the children from the second wives, or the concubine lineage, will become the leaders of the world. Because of this law of restoration through indemnity the lineage of the first wife will have to go through the lineage of the second wife. That is the reversal process. Originally in Jacob’s family centering upon Rachel, the second wife, she was to produce the elder son of Jacob. However, because of the conflict between Leah and Rachel, Rachel lost that right.
In order for us to feel true joy we have to comfort God who has been suffering great han throughout the course of history. The only way is to reverse the world of Hell into the world of the Kingdom of God. That is our mission and that is the meaning of a day such as this and the attitude we should have deep within us on such a day as this. Do you understand? Upon the victorious foundation which True Parents themselves set up, Heung Jin Nim could pass into the spiritual world. Even in the spiritual world Heung Jin Nim could travel freely between the spiritual world and the physical world based on True Parents victorious foundation here. Also he was able to expand his influence throughout the spiritual world and become king and embrace Jesus and lay a strong enough foundation. Therefore at the time of the 3.6 Million Couples Blessing, Heung Jin Nim will be able to give the Blessing in the spiritual world. (Applause)
In the world of the Unification Church we have no concept of death. We are living together with the spiritual world, are we not? (Yes) Centered upon God’s True Love I give my blessing upon the Unification Church for long life, long peace, success and victory in restoring this entire world. Amen. (Amen) (APPLAUSE)
