Peter Kim’s Report
True Parents left America May 24 and arrived here today, spending 38 days in Korea. True Father did so many things. In a little over a month, True Parents directed so many providential ideas that I feel it was a full year’s activity. I can give important points of what happened.
May 26 the Il Hwa soccer team played Poland, a friendship game. No one knew how strong the Polish national team was.
June 4, a very famous Brazilian soccer star visited True Parents’ residence, Hannam dong. He commands $50,000 for a television interview, but he wanted to visit and meet True Parents. We expected 15 – 20 minutes with him. Father shared with him about world peace and sports, and about the spirit world messages, and the soccer star listened to them, and stayed for Hoon Dok Hae. He listened and accepted everything and received True Parents and said he will follow them. He could recognize True Parents and became like a child. He appreciated all the ideas and said he will support them.
The next day Father went to Chung Pyung Lake. There Father announced the Sun Moon Peace Cup, and there was a formal opening at the Little Angels Performing Arts Center. Each continent will be represented. Each will have their own elimination tournaments and send one to three teams to the Peace Cup. It will include six or eight continents, which will become one through these games. It will connect with the University Federation. In Brazil are 6,000 teams, and 600 are very powerful. We can nurture the young people through this project. It will start next July, organized by Pele and other famous soccer stars.
On June 21, 7 million participated in the rally celebrating the Unification and Safe Settlement of the Parents of Heaven and Earth. It was held in Jamsil Gymnasium, with signboards broadcasting it throughout Korea and web cast throughout the world. Father declared the safe settlement message. Now is the time we can unite, centered on the parents of Heaven and Earth. Then two days later, 7,000 international families gathered at Chung Pyung Lake. Many were from the Philippines, Thailand, and Uzbekistan. They are spiritually hungry because they never met True Parents even though they are in Korea.
Father told them they are in the position of unfallen Adam and Eve in the Garden. You are attending the original parents. You met your husband, and are citizens of the Chun Il Guk. They were so moved, and pledged to True Parents. Father told them that if they follow him, they will be kingship families. Father gave a large amount for second- generation scholarships. Many of them are struggling because their husbands are not following the church way. They were weeping.
I watched a song competition from a local area on television, and there was a Japanese woman singing. She had a blessing ring on, so I could see we are making an impact, showing exemplary marital life.
A few days later, True Parents visited Sun Moon University, and saw the new buildings. Father walked around and provided inspiration to the leaders of the school.
Going back a bit, May 21 was the Twentieth Anniversary of the Washington Times, at which Father gave the speech about America being the second Israel. It was held during a set of conferences in Washington, DC. 360 Korean leaders participated in one. Father told them that we are entering the age of women, and women should go to the frontline. Also in attendance were many major contributors from Japan, who received holy books, 1,200 pages long, with True Parents’ official signature. Father signed 3,300 copies, taking more than five hours to sign them all. They are in gratitude for these people’s generosity. Japan received the blessing.
People who came for the Day of All True Things on June 14 toured Korea for eight-days. They all felt that Korea is like a park, beautiful everywhere. Thirty years ago, I reflected, it was damaged everywhere, but now Korea is like a garden. So it is time for Heavenly Father to establish the Garden of Eden there.
The rest is World Cup news, one month of games. 64 games in all. I’m sure you saw them. This time had double the number of nations as ever before. The Korean soccer fields are new and are the finest in the world. One cost $200 million, another $100 million. Japan renovated some old ones and built some new ones. Each country has over 20 soccer stadiums.
Korea was in the final four, and we lost the semi-finals and finals and ended up fourth. Turkey was one of the 16 nations to support the Korean War; they sent 19,000 soldiers and 1,000 died. Turkey contributed a lot to Korea. It was meaningful to yield to them. The referee in that game … (about controversies over the officiating). Japan lost to Turkey 1 – 0. People had some sympathy for Turkey in Korea. One group made Turkey’s national flag. Then it led to the unexpected consequence of them scoring a goal in the first 11 seconds. Also our goal in the last minute was some sort of record. Then the players holding hands together moved everyone’s hearts and created a beautiful atmosphere. In the 1988 Olympics Korea also was fourth. It fulfilled the four-position foundation, I was thinking. Brazil won; they are excellent and Father praised their players.
God worked with True Parents to connect to the games. Heavenly Father and True Parents worked together. The World Cup games connected with the way to make world peace. The world should use the World Cup as a way to establish world peace, to create a cultural event that unites civilizations. That’s why Father is making the Sun Moon Peace Cup, to expand this idea. In South Korea, 47 million people were totally united in oneness. Even the media pointed out the deep heart foundation of the Korean people. Sometimes Korean people are disunited and negative to each other, but this is a positive step toward unity, to accomplish the ideal. This came from God. True Parents everyday watched the games seriously. At the beginning I was not so serious, but later on…
For example, in the Korea-Poland game, someone at Hannam dong even kissed the television screen when Korea scored their first goal. But Father was completely serious, not even clapping. Then after the game, Father said it is not over. Don’t just be excited that Korea won. He was really sincere to connect the World Cup to God’s providence for world peace. He was planning during the games. He spoke about it at Chung Pyung Lake.
Father is trying to establish the Chun Il Guk nation, and to use this for that purpose. This time, we learned a lot about how Korea is the father nation and our fatherland, and Japan is the motherland, and America the elder son.
People’s desire is unlimited. Once we entered the 16, they wanted to join the 8, and once we entered the 8, they wanted the 4, and once the 4, then people said, “Let’s go to Yokohama.” This was a maturing time for Korea. It was a time that evil people became good; the crime rate was very low. Many hospitals were empty, no business. There was no stress, but some broken arms from people jumping around too much.
One of our ministers attended the Taegu game, and was so lifted up by the volume of sound, like an airplane taking off; like going to spirit world, with everyone going insane. Then he went into the front of Seoul City Hall, showing passion and intoxication. There is power and such energy. It purified and resurrected the Korean people. Centered on the will of God, all the Korean people made a new start. They connected to the fourth ranking.
Actually, the Korean team’s skill was lower than Italy or Spain, but they made the goals, so they won. Also the political struggles of Korea and Japan decreased. After Japan dropped out, Japan supported Korea. The Japanese elementary students’ teacher sent a letter to their parliament calling them to support Korea because it is part of Asia.
[Rev. Kim shows some articles from the Korean newspapers about the World Cup.]
Father read five papers every day. Some people encouraged the team’s coach, Mr. Heedink, a Dutchman, to run for president of Korea.
Why does this kind of miracle happen? In the realm of sports, I have moved into the Olympics and World Cup. Now we will move into the arts world, based on the Little Angels and Kirov Ballet, and we should move to the top. The cultural Olympics, and Sun Moon Peace Cup. Why? Because it is the end of the world, and the teenagers need a way to exhaust their energy. In the world, people kill and die, which is a result of the fall, so they need another way to expend their energy. In the future, sports are so important. We can mobilize all the people in a short time in this way, using martial arts, soccer …
It protects health. But we don’t have that system, and we can create it through martial arts. As people do it, they gain power of the body to go with the power of the spirit. The next level is to bring this spirit into the art world, singing and performing arts. Martial arts, sports and art will become the mainstream of the world. So how are we going to organize it and reach the top? I prepared these ideas. We can prepare in these three areas, for God’s providence.
I established the Il Hwa soccer team, and many joked and persecuted it. I wanted to use the term, “Cultural Olympics,” and people objected, so we called it the World Culture and Sports Festival. This was preparation. Soccer is well-developed because it is very cheap, needing just one ball, and emphasizes the teamwork of eleven people. I have a lot of ideas on how to develop teamwork. It requires not just soccer itself, but running, jumping, and flexibility, and teamwork. It is very exciting.
Next is art, singing, ballet, and opera. These stimulate people’s hearts, to use up people’s energy. We develop these and connect them with spirit world, and it is an infinite foundation for world peace.
If you do not study spirit world seriously, you will find yourself in hell. We live in the body world, but you should prepare for your next life by nurturing the spiritual side. If you go there unprepared, it is trouble for you. Is ballet a man’s job or woman’s job? Woman’s; man is just the supporter in ballet. Women show off their beauty and ideals through jumping, exhibiting transcendent ideas. It lifts people up to Heavenly Father, who is a more masculine character, and the slender woman is jumping up to Him. The music and dance should balance, up and down, strong and weak. We can organize all kinds of people under that design.
When you watch, you feel you can jump, or you can race, and you think you can master it in ten seconds. So, sports and art are important to human life; that’s why I talk about the hobby industry. Connect sports and art to hobbies and bring it back to God.
Our martial art is Won Wha Do, is circular, 360 degrees. I created Won Wha Do. Also I gave Chung Do Sul, before. In America people like Tae Kwon Do. I supported the people who brought it to America, but they didn’t connect it to me. Over 100,000 young people study martial arts. All the martial arts leaders are uniting, and the Christians opposed it. I knew what was coming in the future, in the worlds of religion, sports and art, and had to educate all humankind in a short time. I felt that we could change the world in three years. Now look at it, the Yakuza and Mafia are dominating these arenas of life. By 2010, the Mafia will dominate all distribution systems. Who will kick them out? That’s why we need martial arts. So we need to bring martial arts leaders to God’s side, but they don’t know what the purpose of martial arts is. So we need to re-organize them and bring them back to their original purpose.
To recreate the culture, they need to know God and the spirit world. Then the religious world needs to connect to sports and art. If they don’t, they will eventually perish. Music came out of Christianity, and went out to the world. The Unification Church should be at the top of sports and art. We should build a school for this. The young people should understand these ideas. Who knows the spirit world better than me? You Americans don’t know. You have to know the spirit world and how important spirit world phenomena are. Only I understand the spirit world. I know it more than any Nobel Prize winner knows, and also the existence of God and the heart of the family. Then in the family, we need to know the relationship between father and son, which is vertical, and husband and wife, which is horizontal. The root of it all is God, and the root of God is God’s heart.
Divine Principle explains God’s heart. Because of Adam and Eve’s fall, we lost it all, we lost true love. Parents and children became enemies; all entities that were meant to be partners became enemies. Why did that result come? It was because they lost the original starting point. The world became a battleground. They lost the ability to create perfection, and humankind’s attitude became the worst possible. We have to restore the original atmosphere. So the spirit world is so important.
You have to know God’s heart, first, and then the connection of His heart with the atmosphere of the Kingdom of God. Compared to that, the famous Ivy League universities can be dispensed with. They cannot get you to heaven. You need to connect to spirit world freely.
The months of June and July are completely different from each other. On July 3 we will have the Blessing, and July 4 is America’s 226th birthday, and I will make a special declaration warning people about going to hell. Salvation by the cross is not enough. They have to repent; Jesus came to Israel but they killed their parents. Those who stand against the will of God go to the lowest place. Americanism is not God’s way; God is not the king of individualism. He has no concept of individualism. Evil people look for visible things; money, power. What are those people doing? Many who control Hollywood are against God. The model of man-woman relations they exhibit contains no morality. These so-called actors and actresses … This is a problem. They are mostly free sex people; I want to change all this; it is against God. It is the enemy of God’s kingdom forever. Free sex and homosexuality do not work; we need to overcome these ideas. Americans should change the divorce law, so that the children of divorce do not have to follow their mother.
The number one task is to study spirit world. I toured this country, prepared by God for 6,000 years, and where is the result? American Christianity doesn’t know enough. They are like kindergartners; I have to take care of them. They do not connect one by one. I have shown the example and endured and endured. I am 83 and stand on the front line, but none of them recognize it or teach it, standing up. None of them stand up. They teach their own knowledge, which is external. Divine Principle is internal, but they think their external knowledge is better, and they have destroyed the internal depth of the principle.
So I have seriously developed these ideas that I have presented here and want to invest in sports and art. Soccer is very simple and inexpensive. Look at the ball. You just kick the ball. It represents humankind; mind and body in circular movement. If you are not circular, you are not moving. When God touches the soccer ball, you should go that way. The ball is always moving, so you should be expanding and moving 360 degrees. The ball is empty inside, which means that God is invisible, with the mind in the center. The body should follow the mind. Religion is the mind, and we should stop war, and man and woman should unite. Man is living here because of woman, and woman because of man. Woman’s bodily functions are not for herself, but for her baby. So the Unification Principle is not doctrine, but the way of heaven. It is not doctrine, not man-made. Centered on God, we can talk about family. How will we solve the world’s problems? By using culture. Using competition instead of quarreling. In the blood, the white and red cells do not fight; they work together to keep health. By cooperation comes more health and energy. We need to train to get balanced action of subject and object. No matter the academic degree you may have, you need to study principle. A baby just knows its mother’s milk, and it is the best thing. If you are not spiritually hungry and crying, something is wrong.
I came here more than 30 years ago, and received so much persecution. I could do many things, but I am trained to serve you. I give and give ideas. The safe settlement of the parents of Heaven and Earth is so important. You are supposed to attend the true family; we haven’t even done that, but now is the safe settlement accomplished. It means settlement and living continuously. [About Israel’s twelve tribes … The god Baal, and Elijah escaping.] They tried to kill him, and he gathered 7,000 who had not followed Baal, and there were 7 million in Korea and 70 million worldwide. Now is the time to work with the UN. America by itself is struggling. By itself, it cannot cure the disease. They need me; they need True Parents.
Japan tried to eliminate the Unification Church, but Satan has surrendered, March 20, 1999; is it true? It is true. You believe in the Messiah’s ideas?
Witnessing means recognition of the chosen people. I have declared this, and six months beginning today, July 1, all leaders are liberated, you should go back to the place of your ancestors. You connect with your motherland. Without that root, you cannot connect to your nation. That’s why we could not establish God’s nation, because Jesus had no foundation of the family and nation. Now you have received the blessing. You are in an elder’s position. So you have open the way for Jesus to guide to the Kingdom of Heaven.
You leaders; I feel you are valueless, in debt to the Japanese people. I have paid and nurtured and educated the Christian ministers, and have engrafted the 144,000 Christian ministers to the heavenly blood lineage. I visited the 50 states, but none of the American Christian ministers believed in God’s coronation. You don’t even encourage Christian ministers to attend Hoon Dok Hae. Christian ministers should be here to hear me. They should come to Belvedere and East Garden; they are your Cains. You are a long way from the ideal of the Kingdom of Heaven.
First, clearly understand God, and second, understand the Kingdom of Heaven, the dwelling of God. Deny your habits and traditional environment. Deny first, then bring in a new concept and settle it. Then go to the next stage. This is very clear, it is the viewpoint of the Principle of restoration through indemnity. Beyond the regular indemnity, add 20% more.
Before I go to spirit world, I will teach all people of the existence of God and spirit world. In twenty years, the ministers will repent. 120 Christian ministers recognize me in spirit world, even Confucian leaders. Now they understand I am the Messiah. They should not live alone. You should mobilize all the spiritual beings to come to Earth, returning in the spirit, to support. You cannot do it by the way of the individual. You should settle and make the foundation of the nation. Then you should develop that way.
Then you will have a highway to go to spirit world. Otherwise you are blind and deaf there. This talk is so serious. How can you create that atmosphere? Pure love, pure life, pure lineage. What is pure love? It is God’s love. Pure love is a synonym for God’s love. It is not cheap; it is connected to the holy God. It unifies the mind and body as one. If you are not pure, you quarrel and fight with each other. This is a natural way; but people living here do not know how to liberate humankind.
Centering on God, we have the parents’ environment and children’s environment. God is the pure essence, the core of the essence. Do you think about the location from which I will go to spirit world? From where is better, Korea or America? [Father does a word play between Korea and carrier.] You followed me for the last twenty or thirty years- MP (one senior western member); why are you here? Are you from Italy or England? Where is your original wife? Are you divorced? When were you blessed again? (19–.) If you do anything on your own relating to the blessing, God has nothing to do with it. You need permission from God and True Parents. If you do not follow those ideas, and divorce, you cannot go to the Kingdom of Heaven. [To his wife:] when did you become his wife? […] Where is your first wife? [….] And your first son? […] Do you think you can enter the Kingdom of God as a couple? [We have a lot of work to do, but we are on the way.] You need to follow the formula; everything is mathematical. If you married your individual way, you cannot come into this room; you can enter only if True Parents matched you.
At every public meeting, you have to read the spirit world message at the end. Do all the American leaders know this? Do you practice it? I want to re-educate all those ministers. They have to understand the spirit world messages clearly, or where will they go? You have to educate them, so your position as leaders is so serious. Even if I am not here, you should do those activities. I have spent 30 years with youthful, passionate energy to save this country.
Korean people, from today you are liberated. You can save your tribe, based on the safe settlement of the parents of Heaven and Earth and your blessed family. This is not just settlement, but the safe settlement. So you should show filial piety and loyalty, and that way you can attend the parents of Heaven and Earth and establish the Kingdom of Heaven, amen. Adam and Eve were enemies and could not unite with each other. Until today, all people have struggled. That is why I sent out the Ambassadors for Peace, to cleanse the environment. You should go and guide and educate them, and give and guide them to the blessing.
Marx and Lenin were educated and now have confessed and it is your responsibility to … Don’t develop your own way; just follow the Principle. God hates free sex. From now, study the spirit world. Without knowing God’s position, it is impossible to understand Him. If you do not make a new start, you still belong to the tribe of Satan. Even if yesterday was good, today your mind and body are fighting. How can you make them align with each other and go in parallel? Exchange marriage-self-centered marriage is the worst fallen phenomena, therefore we need action in marriage.
So make 12 disciples from your clan, and then 12 nations become one. If you do not follow that idea, how can you…(?) A Korean rice cake has a certain shape, but they can make 360 different kinds. So Korean families are very smart. Koreans, raise your hands. Why are there so many Koreans here? Did I call these Korean leaders? Why are they here? So you are lucky; you came here by some lottery. You should give Divine Principle lectures, everyday, three hours minimum. Part one, part two. Reverend Eu lectured 16 hours a day, in the earlier church age. If he did not give that much, I gave him a hard time. Without lectures, the church will not grow. You can record the results of members and give them awards. Elementary school students, see their development. The good things of the Unification Church should be connected…You do not follow or respect, or teach your members; therefore you ruin them.
In conclusion, one is to know God and two is to know the reality of the spirit world. You don’t need any other scriptures. All ideologies of all nations are connected to the settlement of the family. Even if you receive persecution, you should not be sad, but dance. This is mysterious. Some connect more by virtue of receiving a hard time and training. Practice absolute obedience, then God gives more blessing. I worked so hard to find this principle. That’s why I’m like a living dictionary. I went to all kinds of places, researched. I lived that way, and so many people love Father. Do you love me? [YES] Show me. If you do not follow my direction, how can you say you love me? We send missionaries to the whole world, connecting to the 70 elders. Look at Jacob and Esau. Then connect to the tribe and unite with each other. A tribe of 72 followed Jacob.
Originally, Esau and Jacob were to have received the blessing together, but they did not unite, but divided. So they had to come back. The Jordan River other side was supposed to be milk and honey, but I’ve seen it and even a dog cannot live there. If they had made unity, then … If you do not make your foundation in your hometown, you cannot go to the Kingdom of Heaven. You have to give the blessing to your tribe. Better to do that than let them to go to hell. Hell is torture; you can stop them from going there and bring them back and give them the blessing. When you joined the Unification Church, what was your situation? Were your parents against you, or did they follow you? In the spirit world, they can follow you. The principle is that restoration comes through the Cain and Abel relationship. Everyone has to follow that formula.
Why did I come here to endure a hard time? We need 120 Christian churches, to do fundraising, in a brotherhood relationship, as the Abel of America. Then the National Messiah’s mission is to go and embrace their people, guide them and bring them to God. Cain and Abel relationship is so important, to expand from the family to tribe, nation and world.
The parents of Heaven and Earth, cosmic parents. Uniting the heavenly and earthly parents. Chunjoo means cosmos, it means two persons living together in the house of the universe. Freely living together. The spirit world, physical world, living together. Originally, chunjoo pumo means cosmic parents of Heaven and Earth. It should have been the reality, but not so, so I have to explain. How can you answer about this? St. Paul is suffering in the spirit world because he made mistakes. He was not a real disciple of Jesus; he made a mistake. St. Augustine converted too. Converted from Christianity to the Unification Church. Engraft. Explain this to Christian leaders. All denominations should mix together. In your community, bring 12 denominational churches into one. Spread that model to many other places.
What time is it? (10 p.m.) This is a very important message today. It is a different time. If you do not follow the True Parents, your family will be in trouble.
Mr. (Peter) Kim, sing a song, then we can finish.
Today’s celebration, the Universal Ballet did Romeo and Juliet, originally in England, and it was a great performance. Father saw it. [Hoon Sook Nim is introduced.]
Father, mixed with Rev. Peter Kim
Do all Christian ministers know that Jesus’ wife is living at Belvedere? Take her picture and give it to all the ministers. Now all the famous founders have wives on earth. It is time to proclaim it. How can you deny the message of the spirit world? Who is that prophet-Nostradamus; he gave the qualifications for the messiah of the second coming. The book included nine people possible to fulfill Nostradamus’ prophecy of who would be the Messiah, and all the others, besides True Father, are dead.
He said the messiah’s color would be red, which compares with the Korea soccer team’s color. It is Satan’s color and Father wants to save it. White is usually Korea’s color. Koreans said that when we got the color red, we would lose. Music, opera, drama, ballet and so forth will stimulate and attract young people and get rid of stress. It is so wonderful for me to develop these ideas; it is mysterious. I have prepared everything now. When they go to South America, everything will be turned upside down. I have organized all these ideas to connect with world peace.
[Rev. Peter Kim sings. (Danny Boy.) Dr. Yang closes by leading a cheer of mansei.]
