In this morning’s Hoon Dok Hae Rev. Sun Jo Hwang gives a report.
Summary of Rev. Sun Jo Hwang’s report:
True Parents are the good ancestors and the one who completes providence. Thus, everything that True Parents does have eternity. For two-thousand years, God made preparations so that the lord at his second coming, who comes as the groom, could meet his bride, Christianity. In the latter half of the 20th century, the Christian cultural sphere had hegemony over the world; on that foundation the UN was built. Heaven wanted to create one family under God on the foundation of the United Nations which was based on that Christian cultural sphere. Yet, the Christian sphere that stood as the bride failed to meet True Father. As a result he went to Hungnam prison.
Father’s going to Hungnam prison brought for major changes in providence. The lord at his second coming’s position became that of a prophet; the religion that was to be his bride was shifted to the Unification Church; the Korean peninsula was divided and the world entered the Cold War. To take responsibility for these consequences, True Father went down to the position of a servant of servants and walked the providential path for sixty years. True Father perfected the vertical and horizontal eight stages from the position of a servant of servants to the position of the king of peace. Now he is trying to create one global community for all humanity using the UN as his foothold.
God created this world with His Word. The word is hyung sang and the heart is sung sang. True Parents first proclaimed the Divine Principle which gave a lucid summary of the Old and New Testament Bible. On July 7, 1997 True Parents proclaimed the ‘Declaration of the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath for the Parents of Heaven and Earth’ and on October 14th that year began the Hoon Dok Hae tradition while designating the words for the Completed Testament Age. In the age of Cheon Il Guk True Parents proclaimed the words of Cheon Il Guk such as Cheon Seong Gyeong, the Family Pledge and the Pyeonghwa Hoongyeong.
The twelve years after the proclamation of Cheon Il Guk can be likened to the life of a human being. The four years after the coronation of God’s kingship in 2001 can be compared to the period of pregnancy. It is a time when life in the womb is perfected. During this time, the model for an ideal world i.e. Cheon Il Guk, the owners of Cheon Il Guk, [True Parents’] Holy Wedding, the proclamation of the king of peace were made. In 2005 and 2006 was the time for this life to come out to the world. That was the entrance ceremony for Cheon Jeong Gung and the establishment of the Peace UN.
The Abel Peace UN is a fruit of True Parents’ life course. They took the peace messages to 120 nations; True Mother and the True Children then went to 180 nations; the three generations of the True Family then went to forty nations laying the internal foundation for the entrance ceremony of the Cheon Jeong Gung to take place. Later 120 Christian ministers, 1200 representatives of the religious spheres and 12000 representatives of nations inherited these words and conveyed them to 200 nations. In 2007, with the start of the jubilee year, we have reached the seventh stage in proclaiming the opening of a new civilization.
October is the month of liberation and release. Father was liberated from Hungnam prison on the 14th of October. On the 14th this year a glorious event took place at Sun Moon University — the Rally to declare the liberation of God’s homeland. After this rally, True Mother began the twelve city tour in America, the elder brother nation.
The convention marking the establishment of the Abel UN was held at Geomundo in time with True Mother’s return to Korea. Here Father called for the key persons that will build the Peace UN. 165 participants including ambassadors for each and church leaders took part in this convention which yesterday ended amidst a swirl of emotions.
This convention was held at Geomundo, an isolated island. Yet, Father said that “the seed has been made” and instructed that similar events be held in each village, county and town of Korea and the world. Two things were achieved through this convention. First, we will be holding a blessing ceremony on December 4th for Rev. Herndon who represents Christianity. He was on fire and accompanied True Mother to all twelve cities in America during her tour. The second achievement was that Yeosu was designated as the host city for the World EXPO.
Here we can ask “What does True Parents’ life course and the Yeosu providence have to do with the marine EXPO?” The history of the Korean people has been that of the third Israel. Modern history of Korea progressed along with providential history. In that light, Korea’s liberation from Japan on August 15, the Korean War, the Seoul Olympics, and the 2002 World Cup all have providential significance. True Parents returned with all their glory to Korea after thirty-four years in America. Upon their return True Parents designated Yongpyong, Central City and Yeosu Sooncheon to be the centers of a new civilization around the mountains, metropolitan area, and ocean respectively. Yeosu, which was the center of the ocean providence, will now be hosting the World EXPO in 2012. This will be held on the foundation that our movement built here in Yeosu. Among the things True Parents do there are some things that are beyond our comprehension. Yet, in the end, we find out later that True Parents did such things because their sight was set on the future. I think Yeosu is such a case.
