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
Mrs. McDevitt read Father’s speech from the Sermons of the Rev. Moon volume 52, titled “God’s Providence for Humankind.”
After the reading, all sang “곰세마리” (The Same Roof Daddy) and “마음의 자유천지” (Freedom of the Mind of Heaven and Earth) for Shin Pyeon Nim.
Rev. Jeong Sun Jo read Father’s testimony of the time when he was a student in Tokyo, Japan doing labor jobs helping other people.
“I do here 전력투구 사생결단 (全力投球 死生決斷: Give one’s all risking one’s life). There is nothing superior to such an attitude that I can leave. I want to share everything I have with you and such a thought will never die.”
“Even a plant can’t have spring without surviving a cold winter, even it can’t be fed in summer after it enjoyed spring, even its stem is slender and its flowers become dry and wilt within a week, the plant shouldn’t regret, but instead, adapting itself to nature it should be born peacefully and die peacefully. Wherever you are, (you should be able to) sleep peacefully and work peacefully. Then (the place you remain is) ‘천지복궁 (天地福宮: a blessed palace of heaven and earth),’ which is also ‘말씀의 동산 (Garden of the Truth). I have lived my whole life that way. Read my speeches to find if it is true.'”
“Is Rev. Moon your father? You didn’t hold such a thought in half of your life. You didn’t know it since you didn’t know where your final destination would be. If you knew it, you could have turned away quickly. I don’t do my job exposing what my final destination is. You can’t be successful by yourself even you have my foundation, because the spirit world doesn’t help you. Why? It is because you still have your own concept and your own identity of your tribe and your nation, You couldn’t overcome those yet, and your mind and body have been still separate. I always ask you if your mind and body fight against each other, don’t I? What is the origin of the fight? It is because the God of Night and the God of Day have been separate. A pit was dug there, and I revealed it. Without it, one can’t interpret why (the mind and body have been separate).”
“When you read my biography, (you will understand) the Rev. Moon you know is different from the Rev. Moon I know.”
“I become old reaching the age of 93 while yielding what I have provided. Ancestors in the spirit world have been mobilized because of me, and they will take you (to the spirit world) if you oppose. When you go to the spirit world, you shouldn’t have a reflection of your opposition. Your ancestors are now putting things in order.”
