Dear brothers and sisters,
True Father gave a very significant speech after the Crown of Peace ceremony on February 14. We do not have an electronic version of the entire speech available yet, but I thought you would benefit from some key excerpts. Those excerpts are included below.

“Perfect Restoration of Cain and Abel Brotherhood and the Ideal World of Creation”
“Today we are receiving God’s abundant grace. We are beginning the second four-year course in the providence of Cheon Il Guk, which runs from 2005 to 2008. In commemorating this significant day, I would like to inform you about the heavenly laws that we must know and practice in this age.”
“God created Adam and Eve as His children. When they grew to maturity, He intended to give them the marriage blessing, so that they could establish the way of true love. God was longing for a family that He alone could love. However, to God’s deep sorrow, He could not embrace His children, Adam and Eve, in true love. Nor could He embrace His grandchildren, Cain and Abel, in true love. God’s sorrow over this has persisted throughout history.”
“It is heavenly law that Cain, who stands in the position of an object partner, should go before God through Abel. Cain should attend Abel as he would his father, master or teacher. Abel, for his part, should maintain an absolute standard. His position is to represent God. Like God, he should embrace and love Cain as he would his own child, with absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience. By having a character worthy of trust and respect, Abel should induce Cain to submit to him naturally.”
“Today humankind is mandated to fulfill three great goals. These are to change our lineage in order to complete the registration providence, to transfer the realm of ownership, and to inherit the realm of heart.”
“Let us consider: where do we stand today in the course of providential history? Though imperceptible to the human eye, we are at a point of great transition. Now that we have entered the third millennium, Heaven’s providence is moving toward completion with tremendous speed.”
“Now that you know you live amidst such tremendous heavenly blessings, what should you do? How can you prepare yourself to receive these blessings? First and foremost, you should thoroughly rearrange your life. Begin by discovering the absolute realm of unity between your mind and body. This is how you can perfect yourself as an individual embodiment of truth, unblemished, clear, clean and shining. Your live should be free of debts. In other words, you should achieve a revolution through atonement. Next, you should be able to live eternally without any shame in your conscience. This calls for a revolution of conscience. Then practice a life of living for the sake of others, that you may not feel indebted in heart before True Parents or any person. In other words, carry out a revolution of heart.
The second thing you need to do is create heaven in your family life. The family is the palace of love. Perfect the four great realms of heart and the three great kingships in your family.”
“Ladies and gentlemen, for this time forth your life will not be simple. Wherever you are, whatever you do, hundreds and thousands of your ancestors will accompany you. They have suffered bitterly until now because they could not attend the True Parents on earth. But for the next four years they will live with you in order to attend the True Parents substantially through you. They will cooperate with you, their descendants, and support you as their Abel. Their goal is to enter heaven with you.
Keep in mind that while it may be possible to deceive all the six billion people of the world, you cannot deceive your ancestors. They will evaluate every aspect of your life. They will determine your reward and punishment based on heaven’s standard of good and evil. Whether you are joyful, angry, sorrowful or satisfied, you should not disappoint your good ancestors, who will be watching your every move with blazing eyes. The next four years will be a serious time. Jesus, Buddha, and Mohammad, all the good spirits in the spirit world and your own good ancestors are being mobilized to come down to earth. They will devote all their efforts to build the Kingdom of Heaven on earth; in other words, to complete the Kingdom of Cheon Il Guk.”
“In the Bible, as Lot’s wife was leaving Sodom, she looked back, disobeying heaven’s decree, and was turned into a pillar of salt. Today you have received the heavenly decree. The heavenly decree is always a two-edged sword, bringing both blessing and judgment. The choice is yours. Without a doubt I have revealed tremendous secrets of heaven to you today. There is no turning back; the arrow has left the bow. There is no room for negotiation or compromise. The completion and perfection of God’s providence alone awaits us at the finish line.”
