Translation of notes taken by the Unification Church History Compilation Committee
During this morning’s Hoon Dok Hae there was a matching ceremony for one couple: Rev. James Herndon, a chaplain from the Seventh-day Adventist Church, and Ms. Seon Jeong Song, a second generation member from Korea. Mrs. Wonju McDevitt read chapter two of Cheon Seong Gyeong.
Summary of Father’s words:
The blessing ceremony [for this couple] will be in seven days on the 4th of December: 28th, 29th, 30th, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th. It will open a new chapter in history in liberating the Seventh-day Adventist Church. In the spirit world, Christianity and Buddhism are still not one. We are now moving over to an era where marriages between people from different religious orders will take place. Nations are subordinate to religious orders.
I was holding a convention marking the establishment of the Abel UN in Yeosu but came back to Seoul for this couple. The Abel UN is entering a global level. The question from now will be whether is religious or not. Those who believe in religion will take the lead.
Rev. Herndon was a Jew and ended up in the Seventh-day Adventist Church. He’s studied at two theology seminars and has finished preparations for getting his doctorate degree. He’s been in the ministry for twelve years. The owner of Ahn Shi Il was lost.
You have to know that the number seven is the number of perfection. Satan had control of the numbers four and six; this was a problem.
If you wish to become one you must become one completely. You have to create a sphere.
The sexual organs were made a mess. Satan left his evil mark.
People talk about the sex revolution; you cannot find love in such a place. It destroyed the heaven and earth. A man and woman should be united both in mind and body.
The Pyeonghwa Hoongyeong is a text for teaching people the path for peace. From here the laws of the palace and nation will emerge. The secrets of linking together the religious spheres through the second generation can be found here.
No matter where you are assigned you should not complain.
The reason why the Unification Church is on the path of victory is because I had walked a path of suffering that is beyond what anybody has gone through in history. God, too, has followed me on that path of victory.
There were thousands of times when God was brought to tears; how dreadful such times were!
If you interpret my words at your convenience you will be caught. People had tried to kill me many times but I came out each time.
Adam and Satan were the ones who allowed the woman to be lost. Not a single women born from Satan can be a mother. I had to find that sixteen-year-old girl and bring her over to perfection.
You have to know this, execute this and perfect the familial way of a filial child, saint and divine son or daughter.
From now if you don’t fulfill your responsibility you won’t be able to come to this place.
[One of the leaders reports to Father that Yeosu was designated as the host city for the 2012 EXPO.]
Yeosu qualified for the EXPO!
China is afraid of North Korea and Kim Jung Il.
My great-uncle (Yoon Gook Moon) was a pastor and a prophet. My house was at the center of the March 1 independence movement.
When Hyo Jin was two years old he told me that he heard music from heaven when he prayed and that he enjoyed prayer time because of that. He did not need a teacher. One of the products that Kook Jin made is breaking records in its field.
The bride who was matched today is Seon Jeong Song and her groom is Herndon.
A true man is one who endures. There hasn’t been a true woman. It’s easy to get married and live with a true man. But you have to become a woman who can tolerate anything. A second generation member has become a bridge connecting [the earth] to heaven. It’s an era where we can bless people across any boundary.
Koreans are quite interesting. When they dance they know how to dance with their shoulders and head.
It would be quite nice to go on a trip with you. Will you just live within Korea or in this world thinking it is the best! When you depart you will leave behind that nation and world. You have to leave everything behind. You should have these thoughts as you cultivate yourself.
From now I’m thinking of not allowing people come to Hoon Dok Hae alone. They should bring their sons and daughters; at least eight people [from a family] should come.
The convention marking the establishment of the Abel UN will end tomorrow.
It’s historic that a marriage ceremony is scheduled to take place in a week.
From now there is nothing you can claim as your own. You can only do so when you embrace the world around you. Rights of ownership cannot be allowed in the fallen world. You must become a person who abides by the heavenly way.
Will you all come on the 4th? If you come as a couple make sure you bring gifts. Then your children can receive gifts as well.
Now is the time for the nation to help heaven. From next year we will beginning holding a religious Olympics under the Abel UN. We’ll have people with world records come to this event.
[Rev. Herndon then gives a reflection on being matched. He then sings ‘Being Still.’ Ms. Song express her gratitude to True Parents and sings ‘Hollo Arirang.’]
