Note: These notes are taken from a Peace TV video clip. They cannot be published as definitive texts and should never be used in the future as an “official” publication of True Father’s words. However, they do provide a good idea of the “spirit” of the message. — Rev. Katsumi Kambashi
(Mentioning a sub-header in his speech) “The New Tribal Messiah Federation of the New World” and “Seonghwa Ceremony of the New World.” (Seunghwa Ceremony) is to be held within three days after one dies, which decides whether or not they go to heaven or hell. But Seonghwa Ceremony is to be held from the time of conception.”
(Katsumi: From 25 minutes 35 seconds to the end of the video clip, Father talked about something important and new and I just translated here what I could translate.)
“There isn’t a day when I did not speak and in my collected speeches there are all days and months as the date when the speeches were given. You, in the position of the Tribal Messiah, started to read my speech book and there will be a problem if you and your tribe can’t establish a nation before you and they are finished with reading them all. Such a competition will start now. There are 387 nations (194 Abel UN nations and 193 Cain UN nations), and thousands of tribal leaders and millions of people will start to read my speech books. If they want to make their tribe special in the spirit world, they must consider my speech books their own and get started from the date of the speech that moved them.
(For example) Today we read my speech titled “Life and Results from the speech book # 33. When you are determined with this speech and your descendants continue to read my speech, you will be the ancestor who has such a standard (of the contents of the speech). I don’t know if it is OK to talk about this here. The new tribe will start. For millions of years and eternity, the words given under the name of True Parents will never disappear. In your life, it is a starting point when you are moved by my speech given on a specific day included in a specific speech book, and your tribe continues to read my speeches and there will be a competition of how many times each tribe has read them. Be determined now and start when you go back home, and (if you are successful in doing this) you can even go in front of the God of Night and the God of Day. This is unbelievable grace. The Cheon Bok Gung has such a meaning.
We are reading now the speech book #33 and everybody knows which book we are going to read tomorrow. (For example) When you were moved and got determined by a speech in speech book #100, you will be the representative of that standard described in that speech and then you can go higher than your ancestors. It looks like a lie, and even I have difficulties to believe it. Do you understand? (‘Yes.’) Explain to me. (Nobody could respond). The number of my speech book and the date of the speech that makes you determined will decide your foundation for you in the spirit world. So this heavenly fortune is scary and amazing.
I gave these speeches and by reading them and being determined in God’s will, you will be blessed as the first person centering on that speech. Such a thing will be possible from today. Do you understand? (Nobody said yes.) Aigo, if you understand it you understand it, and if you don’t understand it, just leave it. Those who understand, raise and clap your hands. (Everybody did so). If you did it without understanding what I said, that means you are stealing. You should clap your hands when you understand what I said. I am moving place to place holding Hoon Dok Hae, and if there are some people, in place of me, who are finished with their Hoon Dok Hae with such determination, they will be ancestors who can lead thousands of their ancestors in the spirit world.”
