That day, many Japanese members participated at the meeting.
“Here is not Tokyo or Sendai in Japan.
This is a place in the US, which is the worst place, called Las Vegas. “Las” means the plural of ‘large,’ and ‘Vegas’ means ‘Beggars.’ So this is the royal domain in the hell for beggars. Why did you come from Japan, which is of no relation with and far from here?”
“Even if all of humankind is restored to God, in the spirit world you will be taught regarding the ideal nation and the world that would have been realized if not for the fall. Is all you know my words? I am following the heavenly heart, and so there is no end.
What would the original hometown where you would be able to go thousands years later have been like?
How amazing would that ideal have been? Even if you go to Heaven in the spirit world, you should not be satisfied there and must look for the original ideal.”
“I can talk about the standard of God’s personality, Who is the King of Kings, and the original standard of heart before the fall, which has never appeared in this world, and so nobody knows about it.”
“This time I go to Nigeria. Nigeria means “Now I understood,” and it leads to signify “I now understood that my younger brother won.” or “I now understood who my younger brother became.” “I have lots of friends in Japan (whom I met as college student), and I had to win against them in arm wrestling and sumo wrestling. I did not learn Judo. Why? Knowing my character, once I fight against someone in judo, I must run through, even by bending their arms or legs as I cannot leave them as they are. In fighting, I am a dreadful person.”
“Recently, especially within the past couple of years, people’s life-spans have become longer. Why? It is because of my long life span. Japanese women live long, don’t they? Because they eat fish. It is fish that is never judged by Heaven.
(Katsumi: Father often says this talking the time of Noah when only fish was not judged by the flood.)
The European continental director showed Father a stamp made in Portugal which contains True Parents’ photo. Father said jokingly, “Whose photo is this?”
True Parents sang joined by the participants, which concluded the meeting that day.
