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 Ahn Shi Il Hoon Dok Hae at the Cheon Jeong Gung at Chung Pyung on 9.28 by the H.C. (Oct. 24, 2011)

(Opening his speech file)” (You can know) what I did when I was 35 years old by reading page 35. Use this file as your reference. This is the record of my life through which you can know what I think and did at what age. For example, what did I think and did when I was 40? (Father started to read from page 39)

If you view the flow of history through eyes that focus on God’s providence, you can see that the changes of the times can be broadly classified into three stages. First was the nature-centered era, a time when instinctual feelings, materialism and a closeness to animals and the things of creation were prevalent. Next came a human-centered era. when people’s knowledge, feelings and emotions took precedence and dominated the world.

However, these eras were transitional. They were courses of preparation necessary in order to enter the era in which people could rid themselves of their fallen nature, return to their original selves and live as one united family where they attend to God as their father. When that happens we will enter a God-centered era, the final stage in which human beings who know and feel God’s Heart and Will follow the path of living for the sake of others. They will do this through establishing an absolute standard on the foundation of purifying themselves, both inside and out, through the holy Blessing Ceremony. This is the time of opening up the era of God’s kingdom, Cheon Il Guk, a time in which we can return to the heart of the one true God. Please engrave this point on your hearts.

Once the actual era of Cheon Il Guk begins, the spiritual and earthly worlds will be connected and brought into oneness, and all things will be governed under the Union of the Spiritual and Physical Worlds Association, which will be established on earth for the first time. Moreover, the providence will be carried out according to heavenly law and the heavenly way. Elections conducted in a purely secular fashion will disappear from the face of the earth. All people will become one family through cross-cultural marriage and the World Peace Marriage Blessing, and we will enjoy tranquility and true love in happiness during the sacred reign of peace.

Let me say it again: this day is drawing near. As part of preparing for that time, on February 14th last year 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 positions 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.

You must all now engrave True Parents? teachings onto your bones and practice them in your life. We have no choice. If we do not prepare now, we will surely be left behind. We should learn from the courage and fortitude of the white-necked cranes that fly across the Himalayas, which are more than seven thousand meters high, in preparation for winter. (which ends on the page 44)

An encyclopedia in England refers to cranes using this part of my speech. The first six pages of this speech file are not numbered and these are introduction. (Then Father read the last part of it)

I will now quote from content read at the 44th True God’s Day and the Coronation Ceremony for the Kingship of God. This represents the content in the textbooks and teaching materials that summarize all the content I have taught throughout my life course.

Then from page seven which is the first numbered page as page one until page 44 contains what responsibilities I must accomplished until my age of 44. (Then Father returned to page 44 again and read the following part two times)

You must all now engrave True Parents’ teachings onto your bones and practice them in your life. You will say “That is Father’s life, not mine,” but these words mean your life is related to mine. (Then Father went back to page 42 and read the following again)

As part of preparing for that time, on February 14th last year 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 positions 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. This didn’t happen to take place. (Then he went back to page 41 again and read the following)

Once the actual era of Cheon Il Guk begins, the spiritual and earthly worlds will be connected and brought into oneness, and all things will be governed under the Union of the Spiritual and Physical Worlds Association, which will be established on earth for the first time.

This means the world will follow and develop within my plan. That’s why I am now teaching the reality of the spirit world. I had given the Blessing to four great saints so that they could be settled in the spirit world. Moreover, the providence will be carried out according to the heavenly law and the heavenly way. Elections conducted in a purely secular fashion will disappear from the face of the earth.

All people will become one family through cross-cultural marriage and the World Peace Marriage Blessing, and we will enjoy tranquility and true love in happiness during the sacred reign of peace. Even under severe persecution, I had pioneered the path on both spirit and physical worlds. Let me say it again: this day is drawing near.

You can’t live sleeping and eating as you like. As part of preparing for that time, on February 14th last year I proclaimed to all of heaven and earth the start of the new heavenly calendar. I didn’t say here ‘I will proclaim’ but I said ‘ I proclaimed.’ I passed that stage already! You have to repent and be ready. I clearly taught you this.

You must all now engrave True Parents? teachings onto your bones and practice them in your life. Don’t think this is something ordinary. It is a life-or-death problem. We have no choice. The day has been decided with the name of True Parents. When you live up to the Blessing and be united with me, we will live together without fail and I will never leave you.”
