Note: These notes are taken from a simultaneous translation. Simultaneous translation is done in summary form and depends greatly on the translator’s ability to communicate the essence of the message. These cannot be published as definitive texts and should never be used in the future as an “official” publication on Rev. Moon’s words. However, they do provide a good idea of the “spirit” of the message.
Father asked Rev. Song to report about the breakthroughs in Europe. Incredible things developed there. Hyun Jin Nim’s tour and the lifting of all bans and barriers to True Parents visiting all countries in Europe.
Then Rev. Kwak reported on developments in Korea centering on the Ambassadors for Peace. Korea has done a 180 degree turn toward True Parents now. The highest level leaders of great influence are standing together with True Parents and see Father as the real hope for the peaceful reunification of North and South Korea.
When we become one family with one lineage centering on God, then we don’t need complex policies to relate between nations and peoples. Right now the political world is dominating everything and has enormous power and the religious world is not able to advise. However, each nation should be governed with the heart of a parent with true love. The religious realm should advise the civic realm and then nation can go the right direction.
When all people truly come to feel they are one family, then the people of conscience can be in the center. Who should be in the center? The person who serves the most. The person who lives for others the most will be the center and have God’s power.
If you do not want to serve others, you will never become owners. Just like God has been loving other human beings, we should stand with a parental heart toward others. You should serve others. Some people are the summer type, and they love summer. Some don’t love summer. A true person can be a summer type but would love and appreciate those who don’t love summer as much.
We are supposed to be living for others. I know the spirit world very well; I know who is living for the sake of others. It will never change. Grandparents know that to win children’s hearts they must serve them.
Today we will have the message read by True Mother. After the UPF’s founding on September 12, 2005, I toured 120 countries with Mother. On the second tour, Mother toured. On the third tour, Mother and Children toured. We have entered the age in which women will lead the world and lead the way to peace. Therefore True Mother will read Peace Message Number 1 today.
True Mother read Peace Message # 1
Many people throughout the world have opposed us. Now that is changing. People are coming to understand and support this global movement. Because of their feelings of enmity however, they cannot really find the way to unify people. Most of the time, those who oppose us do so out of a lack of understanding.
The way to liquidate enemy relations is through the international and intercultural marriage blessing in which one’s son or daughter is “given” to the enemy family. This “exchange” sets the condition to love the enemy and bring the two families together.
You send your son or daughter to the enemy family and they should serve and win that family. When this couple has children, they can bring the enemies together because the children represent both.
I see the clergy here (Bishop Stallings, Rev. Edwards, Rev. Murray, Rev. Abernathy, Rev. Pyle). Through persecution, you become strong in your faith. Persecution is the best training and the best condition to allow for God’s blessing. Have you been persecuted? You really don’t have serious faith unless you have been persecuted.
In the future, those who had a international marriage will be blessed with success. You can’t be a real member or person of faith unless you are persecuted; only good members are persecuted.
