The 43rd True God’s Day and the 9th Anniversary of the Coronation of God’s Kingship
Sun Myung Moon
February 14, 2010
First of all, True Parents proclaimed the message “God’s Kingdom of Cheon Il Guk that Attends God Who Is Opening the Eternal and Unchanging Era of the Heavenly Calendar” on February 19 at the True Parents’ Birthday Celebration. True Father expressed his serious heart by saying,
“As of today I take my first steps toward the hundredth year of my life. I have been blessed with a long life, beyond the average lifespan in this world… However, the life that my wife and I have led is not a life that can be perceived in such a worldly way. We have had to complete the mission of the actual True Parents who received that seal from God, who is Himself the true parent of all humankind. Now, with three years remaining in this mission, we are leading each day of our lives with more seriousness than ever before… We can no longer postpone or prolong the fulfillment of His wish. I have already proclaimed that January 13, 2013 will be a “Foundation Day.” That day will be the actual beginning and birth of God’s kingdom, which in Korean we call Cheon Il Guk. Yet, only three years remain.”
He also said,
“As part of preparing for that time (January 13, 2013), a few days ago on February 14, I proclaimed to all of heaven and earth the start of the new ‘heavenly calendar.’ The Gregorian calendar and lunar calendar shall now stand in the position of Cain and Abel and serve the role of supporting the heavenly calendar by which we will record and indicate the progress of God’s providence.”
In order to deeply understand and practice what True Parents expect us, the Blessed Central Families, I would like to consider the ceremonies in Korea this time.
The 43rd True God’s Day and the 9th Anniversary of the Coronation of God’s Kingship (from KMS News 245)
January 1, 2010 of the heavenly calendar (February 14, 2010 of the Gregorian calendar) was the commemorative day to start to celebrate all church holidays centering on the lunar calendar, which was a direction of True Parents. True Parents united the Gregorian calendar and lunar calendar and proclaimed the “heavenly calendar” centering on the lunar calendar. Mr. and Mrs. Hyung Jin Moon, International President of Unificationism, offered the representative prayer report saying,
“In 2010, True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humanity decided the lunar calendar as the heavenly calendar. They let us start anew overcoming the 6000-year history of regret and sorrow which had continued from the Fall.”
Father could not speak because he had spoken for 12 and half hours at Hoon Dok Hae on the previous day and his voice had become hoarse. Therefore, the video of Father’s recent words was shown for 17 minutes. The summary of True Father’s words is as follows.
(a) True Father’s words that he proclaimed on January 19 and 20 at the 20th visit to Las Vegas
“What should have been done in the 7 years from 1945 to 1952 was postponed, but now it can be concluded. January 13, 2013 will be the actual beginning and birth of Cheon Il Guk. It is the “Foundation Day.” Today is January 19, so 1089 days remain until the “Foundation Day.”
By that day in God’s providence, education has to be completed. Then, when the spiritual world and physical world are united with Adam as Cain and Abel, we can enter into the era of God’s total authority. If we live exactly following the education materials, everything will finish. The education materials made with which you will educate people in each country during this period have already been. Therefore, if you push people to learn the materials in a system stronger than that of a war regime, God’s fatherland and hometown of freedom will be established as the peaceful world, which is just the opposite of the Satanic world.

You need to educate about what I proclaimed at my 20th visit to Las Vegas this year. Now is the time when we can welcome God to the world and start anew. The Abel UN will start in earnest.
(c) True Father’s benediction and words at Cheon Jeong Gung Museum on February 7 when he offered the education materials to heaven
I have accomplished everything. Father, now I offer the education materials to heaven, which represent everything in the spiritual and physical worlds. Please accept them. In a loud voice! Please accept them! (Please accept them!) Thank you very much.
In order for God to become the king of peace, True Parents, who have not been connected with God, should be connected with God by the process that Abel wins the Cain world and Cain absolutely serves Abel instead of sacrificing Abel. In history, Cain has made Abel shed blood, so now Cain should welcome his younger brother to the position of completion before the Fall. Then, Cain, the elder brother, needs to attend his younger brother as the representative of True Parents and True God. From today on, the struggle of Cain and Abel is finished. Abel who had been killed by Cain, revived. For the first time, True Parents restored the elder brother who killed, and also restored True Parents and God who were chased away after the elder son. Then they restored the macrocosm. Why did I say, “Become the king of the family and tribe. Distribute 430 copies of True Father’s autobiography on behalf of True Parents”? If they read this book 10 or 100 times during the three years, they will not deny us any more. So, try it. Do you try it, or not? (We will try it.) Try it from today.
I would like to talk about our attitude for the 3-year course centering on True Parents.
(a) Concentrating only on True Parents — In Jin Nim’s sermon (12/27/09) (from In Jin Nim’s Monthly Journal 16 in Korean)
When we look at my father physically, he is an old man. He’s past 90 years of age, and he needs help to come onstage. But when we look at our True Father with spiritual eyes, we realize that he is not like a 90-year-old man. He is truly the new light that we’ve been waiting for. If we compare True Parents with society’s norms or the physical world norms, we can easily end up just like Judas, and waste our lives.
Whenever we are going through difficult times, we must tap into our own divinity and our own relationship with Heavenly Parent. We must clearly know that there is only one True Parents. Our True Parents will be eternal, and the True Children’s job is to inherit their love and to be great sons and daughters of God.
So we need to be joyful, be grateful, and rejoice in the fact that we have our True Parents here with us. It doesn’t matter where they are. A lot of people are saying, “When Father ascends to spirit world, then what will happen?” Anybody who believes in the spirit world knows that when Father ascends to the spirit world, he will probably be more with us than he is now, becoming more accessible to each and every one of us. All you have to do is simply pray, meditate, commune with the divinity within, and our Father will be with you every step of the way.
Whenever we are confronted with difficulty, the only thing we need to do is concentrate on True Parents. We need to know how incredibly blessed we are to have them in our lives now. Understanding how valuable they are, we have the job and responsibility to go forth and reach out to the other brothers and sisters who are waiting for the opportunity to know True Parents in their lifetime.

(b) From Dr. Seuk’s Lecture at World Church Leaders’ Conference
Dr. Seuk said,
“What an amazing miracle it is that the lifetime of True Parents, who are the Messiah, Savior, and King of Kings of humanity, coincides with ours, and that we and they breathe the same air and bask in the same sun in the same era! Also, How wonderful it is that we can march forward with True Parents in the providence of establishing Cheon Il Guk, which will be a foundation of the eternal peaceful world! In order to establish Cheon Il Guk, we got the mission from True Parents. Let’s fulfill our mission of the completion of Cheon Bok Gung, settlement of the True Parent UN, popularizing the Education Materials, and Tribal Messiah activity through spreading True Father’s autobiography. We have to evangelize more than 51% of the whole people in Korea by January 13, 2013.”
(c) Establishing the Tradition of Hoon Dok Hae Centering on 8 Education Materials
“I already have prepared the last words I will give to humankind. These words have been prepared based on my triumphs over more than six life-or-death situations during periods of unjust imprisonment I have experienced during my life. I have left behind eight different volumes of books as the textbooks and teaching materials for humankind for all eternity.
These include, among 1,200 volumes, The Sermons of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, Divine Principle, Cheon Seong Gyeong, Pyung Hwa Shingyeong (The Peace Messages) and the Family Pledge. Then there is the booklet True Families: The Gateway to Heaven, my speech Owner of Peace, Owner of Lineage, and a comparative anthology, “World Scriptures.” …
You should now set up the tradition of Hoon Dok Hae centering on your family; that is, the tradition where three generations of a family start each day by reading the words of Heaven, practicing that with a new mind. Let’s create a world where the spirit world and the earthly world can both attend True Parents at the same time, and read the words of the heavenly path together.”
(From True Father’s Speech on 2/19/10)
(d) True Father’s Autobiography
“…last year, my memoirs, which contain an honest and candid account of my life, were published. Through this book I have clearly shown where you can find God’s will for humanity and the path that human beings, as God’s children, should follow. My life has been a typical model of the saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again.” I have as much faith in this book as in the hoondok textbooks I have mentioned. For this reason, I recommend my autobiography to you, believing that it will show you about leading life according to true principles. It does not subtract or add anything to the ninety years of my life, which I have led under Heaven’s decree. I pray you will carefully read this record of true love and find great inspiration.”
(From True Father’s Speech on 2/19/10)
True Parents said to us,
“If blessed families practice distributing the autobiography to 430 families, they can not only make a condition of indemnity for their insufficiency or failure in the past, but also make a foundation of the Tribal Messiah, and then the way of establishing God’s fatherland will be opened. Absolutely Good Spirits in the spiritual world also cooperate with us in the frontline in order to fulfill the purpose.”
