Summary of Father’s Words

From now on, you have to sacrifice your entire assets, your life and even your kith and kin. You have to separate them from Satan. Everything that you possessed until now is property that the Satanic world stole from God. It was taken away by force. The term, “ownership” did not exist. It could not exist in the fallen world. Because everything was stolen. Once the owner returns He must recover everything that was stolen. He must get it back. He must recover the lives and assets of you and the people. People’s life and assets are centered on the lineage. Whether they belong to the lineages of Cain or Abel these two lineages must be made as one. If it is separated it belongs to the satanic world. To build a providential foundation for uniting these lineages, the elder brother must stand as the younger brother, the father must become the son, the grandfather must become the grandson. You can see how complicated restoration through indemnity is.

There are Cain-type figures even in the Unification Church. I can immediately tell them apart. I know whether a person is working centered on God’s will. I know it in a flash. If there is someone who claims that his life and assets belong to him, how should a person who serves and attends God answer that person? He would say that all of that must belong to God, the father. If it belongs to God, the father, it automatically becomes your property. This is about inheritance. The son inherits his father’s possessions. If a third person inherits instead he must return it all to the rightful owner. You must connect your lineage to God if you are to call Him “father.”

You have been connected to God’s lineage. You don’t know how important the blood line is. True Parents refers to the mother and father who gave birth to you. Can you reject that concept? Whatever assets the father and mother accumulate, the child should say that it belongs to the parents. The child should renounce the world in the same manner that Buddhists or Christians leave their homes. The child should go to a village or nation that would welcome them. If that village or nation bestows material possessions to that person based on his merits that are within the laws set by that nation, the child can claim ownership. There is nothing else that he can claim as his own.

Isn’t Cheon Jeong Gung a palace that represents Korea? Religion and politics did not exist in the Garden of Eden. (After the Fall) Politics and religions emerged, and the fighting began. In the Garden of Eden, there was no religion or political system. What do we talk about in verse 4 of the Family Pledge? One great family means a single family. There is no nation or religion in this concept. We must go back to that. Restoration is not simple. The satanic world is receding because of me. Communism has receded because of me.
