1945-1960: Becoming a perfected man and inheriting Jesus’
In 1945, Reverend Moon began his mission work. He first worked in
South Korea, where he contacted many spiritualist groups. At that
time, he had not yet proclaimed the Divine Principle, therefore he
could not speak even one word of the Divine Principle. He just spoke
about the Bible—New Testament, Old Testament—and tried
very hard to persuade people to follow him. Some testified to him,
but they did not follow him.
In 1946, Heavenly Father told Reverend Moon to go to North Korea
because Reverend Moon could not find his supporting group in South
Korea. He went to North Korea and arrived in Pyongyang on June 6,
1946. There he also tried to contact spiritualist groups, but he
failed in North Korea again.
He met Mrs. Heo, a spiritualist group leader, and her husband, and
talked with them, but they did not follow him. He met them in the
jail of the Pyongyang Taedong security police station where Father
stayed for 100 days. He could not directly meet the spiritualist
group leader because she was in the women’s prison, but he met
her husband who was sent into the same prison as Father. He talked
with the husband, who said that he would follow his wife.
It was a very dangerous time, but finally Reverend Moon wrote a
message to Mrs. Heo on a small piece of paper and had it sent to her.
It said, “You pray and find out who I am. Deny everything and
get released.” When she read this and prayed, she understood
somewhat that Father was not an ordinary person but a special person,
but she did not follow him because Father said, “Deny
everything.” This meant for her to deny her doctrines. She had
been accused because of her mission work, and communists wanted to
send her to trial. She saw two choices: One was to follow the Bible,
and the other to follow Father. If she was to follow Father, she had
to give up the Bible. She decided that following the Bible was a
safer option than following Father, and because of that she didn’t
listen to Father. They were all killed in the jail, and because the
paper was found Father was beaten almost to death and thrown out of
the station. Miraculously, Father was revived and could continue, but
because of these failures he then had to go through the course of
The First Test: To be testified as the Messiah
Jesus, when he was rejected by his people and Judaism faced three
temptations from Satan. In the same way, Father had to go through the
course of three tests. The first course was to find and go to the
woman who was called the “wife of God.” Her name was Mrs.
Pak and Father went to her house and served her and her family as
servant of servants. He could not sleep in the room; he slept in the
barn and did all kinds of manual work. I had a friend from Pyongyang
whose house was near Mrs. Pak’s house, and he had seen Father
at that time and said he looked very healthy and handsome. Why would
such a person come to this house and serve like a slave? No one could
understand that. They called him all kinds of bad names, and someone
even cursed him, but Father did not pay attention to them and just
served the family with all his heart and body.
We know the eight-stage elevation program from the Divine
Principle: From servant of servants’ place to servants’
place, going up to first son’s place, to illegitimate son’s
place and real son’s place, etc. up all eight stages.
Mrs. Pak gave a testimony to Father, saying, “You are the Prime
Minister of God’s Kingdom,” and this was the sixth place.
She later said, “You are like Jesus. You’re a man like
Jesus.” The seventh. And the final testimony was, “You
are the man of God’s substantial object.” By this he
reached the eighth, highest place. Then Father said to her, “Now
that you have testified to me, now and from now on, you have to
follow me.” However, she had been filled with the Holy Spirit
when she gave a good testimony to Father, but when she came back to
her own consciousness she couldn’t understand what she had said
and she did not follow him. Therefore, Father had to leave her place,
but he succeeded in that his position was testified by the spirit
world that he was the son of God and in the position of the Messiah,
and so he passed the first of the course of three tests.
The Second Test: To obtain the seal of God
The second test took place in the spirit world. Father went to the
spirit world and he said that for 43 days he fought there with God’s
truth. There, all the great saints and even God was present. Father’s
insistence and conviction was that the most important things in the
providence of restoration are the change of blood lineage, change of
heart and change of ownership.
He also, among many other things, talked to Jesus. Jesus had
talked about his second coming, which confused people. Jesus said he
was coming, but actually, another person was to come, so, in one
respect, this statement can be seen as a mistake. Because of that
there was confusion among Christians.
Father also talked to Confucius. According to Father, Confucius
did not know God or understand that God is a God of character, and
God’s character is the origin of human character. He only
vaguely used the word, “heaven” instead of “God.”
All saints came against Father, and even God said, “This
guy, who served Mrs. Pak’s house as servant of servants, this
guy says such things.” Even God came against Father because
Adam had betrayed God, therefore to indemnify that, God took this
position, but Father did not bend his conviction. He was firm and
strong, and finally, God said, “This Sun Myung Moon is right!”
This was the seal of God and this is what Father meant when he said,
“I came with the seal of God.”
The Third Test: To inherit Jesus’ mission
The third test course was for Father to succeed the mission of
Jesus. Where did Jesus finish his life? He finished his life on top
of the cross. Therefore, Father had to go to the cross. Where was
that? A place worse to endure than a cross, that was a Communist
country's hard labor camp, a place where they killed people, didn’t
feed laborers enough and overworked them. People gradually die in
Father went, worked and suffered in the Heungnam labor camp for
two years, seven months and twenty days. How could he survive there?
The people who were there with Father and released at the time of
Father’s release gave their testimony that they never saw
Father sleeping. Did Father not sleep? He slept, but later than
anybody else, and got up earlier than anybody else. Therefore, nobody
could see Father sleeping. Not only that, he received three citations
for being a model prisoner and model laborer. Even though it was
Satan’s work, he did his best in doing his duty.
He also always kept his dignity as the son of God. Prisoners
received water rationed for drinking, and Father kept some water
aside and with wet paper always washed his body at night before going
to sleep. Heaven had to be moved by such a life.
The reason why Jesus died was because he lost twelve disciples. If
the twelve disciples had followed him to the end, Jesus would not
have died. For Father to be released from the hard labor camp, he had
to restore twelve disciples in the prison.
Today, we are living in a free world. We are free to talk, read
and do anything we like, but how difficult it is, still, to witness
to people. In prison, however, you cannot talk, especially about God.
You cannot give each other something to read. Without speaking, how
can you witness to people and find your disciples? There’s no
other way than moving the spirit world. The spirit world helped
Father. They worked and chose people, and through dreams talked to
them about Father. By this Father could have twelve disciples in the
prison and could be safely released. In 1950, when United Nations
forces went up to North Korea, they first went to Heungnam. Thus on
October 14, the day Father was to be executed, Father was, instead,
After he was released from prison, Father came back to Pyongyang
on foot where he visited all his members who had been following
Father before he went to prison. He visited them and talked to them,
saying they should come with him, but no one followed him anymore.
Later I heard from one of those members, who said, “Father
never spoke any word of Divine Principle. If Father had spoke of and
taught Divine Principle at that time, we would not have gone away
When Father left Pyongyang to go to South Korea, he came with Won
Pil Kim and Mr. Chong Hwa Pak, who had leg problems. He put Mr. Pak
on a bicycle and took him all the way to South Korea. After he came
to South Korea, from May 11, 1951 to May 10, 1952, for one year,
Father wrote the original text of the Divine Principle. Then the next
year, starting in July 1953, he began to preach his new words. 1953
was the year during which Father was 33 years of age, exactly the age
at which Jesus left this world.
1960-1981: Father and Mother became True Parents and began
the work of salvation through the Blessing
Father’s first mission was to become a perfected man and to
succeed, as Messiah, Jesus’s position. He did this in North
Korea and then came down to South Korea. In 1960 he began his next
mission after receiving the Holy Marriage Blessing from Heavenly
First Adam and first Eve fell. And Jesus, the second Adam, died
because he could not find second Eve. If Jesus had found second Eve,
he would have received God’s blessing and his course would have
been completely changed. Father came as the third Adam, and succeeded
Finding Third Eve and becoming True Parents
His first mission as third Adam was to find third Eve, and Father
succeeded. When Mother first came to Cheong pa-dong in 1958, I was
there, in the fire room on the ground floor of the church. She was a
small, young lady, a high school student. She was younger than Father
by 23 years. In 1960, when she was chosen, Father was 40 years old,
and Mother was seventeen.
She was in a school girls’ uniform, so she seemed plain, but
when Father saw her he immediately knew who she was and prayed to
Heavenly Father, “Father, I am so grateful that you sent Hak Ja
Han to Korea.” Father had a special prayer to God of great
thanks. Mother was chosen as third Eve and Father could receive the
Heavenly Blessing in marriage in 1960.
Salvation through The Blessing
After this, Father's salvation work immediately started. Before
that he had just been preaching, not giving salvation. What is true
salvation? True salvation is to change Satan’s blood lineage to
God’s blood lineage. If this is true, Jesus gave new words and
elevated his followers’ position somewhat, but he could not
change their blood lineage.
Father’s Blessing was April 11, 1960, and after five days,
on April 16, he blessed three couples in holy matrimony. This was the
beginning of true salvation of earthly men and women. In the next
year, 1961, he blessed 33 couples; in 1962, he blessed 72 couples,
and in 1963 he blessed 124 couples.
After that he stopped the blessing ceremonies, because in those
days they all became church center leaders, and by Blessing them the
center leader numbers decreased by half as husband and wife went to
live together. Because of that, they had to postpone the next
Blessing. The next Blessing took place in 1968, and that was a
Blessing of 433 couples.
1981-2000: Ancestor liberation toward Satan’s
surrender and the realm of the fourth Adam
The Holy Marriage Blessing went on, and that was the blessing
salvation of people on Earth, but where are more people living: on
the Earth or in the spirit world? There are so many more people in
the spirit world you cannot compare. Now, on this Earth, there are
7.5 billion people. How many are in the spirit world? Can you
imagine? More than a trillion.
How old is the history of homo sapiens? Many
archaeologists do surveys all around the world and have found the
same bones as our modern humans that date back to 35,000 years ago.
From this, we can understand that human history is more than 35,000
Today, biology developed to a very high level and the study of
genes and DNA is highly advanced. From the evolution of genes, they
now found that human history could be at least 50,000 years old. How
many generations is that? Can you imagine? 1800 generations. Then how
many people are in the spirit world?
Now, in Africa, for example, how many children are born? Sometimes
ten to twelve in a family. Of course they don’t have a good
medical system and they cannot feed them well, therefore, many
children die. However, if they die, they are still alive in the
spirit world. Once man is born, spirit man never disappears. They go
to the spirit world. Therefore, an unbelievable number of people are
living in the spirit world. Therefore Father’s concern is much
more to the spirit world and the salvation of spirit men and women.
Now, how can Father save spirits? There was no one who did
anything about this before in the world. Father was the first one,
and he began the salvation of spirits in the spirit world in 1997, in
America. That was a time when we were Blessing 40 million couples
throughout the world.
November 29, 1997: this was the day when the first Blessing
Ceremony for people in the spirit world took place.
Father blessed, together with 40 million couples, five great
saints and three devils. Did you know that? Five great saints, who
are they? Jesus, Buddha, Confucius, Muhammad, and Socrates. And who
are the three devils? Stalin, Hitler, and one more.
Stalin, how many people did he kill? More than 50 million. How
about Hitler? Father blessed all those terrible killers with great
saints. Why did he do that? Because he wanted to shock all the
spirits in the spirit world. By giving The Blessing to those devils,
now other evil spirits and everyone in the spirit world quiver. If
those evil guys can be blessed then why not even us, who did not do
as many bad things as they did? If they were to receive The Blessing,
why not us? Everyone came to have hope for The Blessing. This was
Father’s strategy: to shake up the spirit world. Satan built a
wall between Satan’s side and God’s side. No one could go
over this wall, but this Blessing of these three devil men was like
making small holes in the wall. If a small hole is made in a dam,
what will happen? As time goes by, gradually, the dam begins to
Father held many assemblies and gave many declarations and
proclamations. Why did he do so many things? Today I will show you
how Father gradually prepared, through those declarations and
proclamations, for the salvation of spirits in the spirit world.
December 1, 1997, two days later, Father declared the opening of
the gates to the Blessing for people in the spirit world. What
happened then in the spirit world? Everybody shouted, “Now, a
new time is coming!” For them, a good time was coming.
May 15, 1998 was the declaration for the opening of Hell and the
opening of the Kingdom of God. Many members know what Father did, but
we did not know how this act connected with spiritual salvation. We
heard, “Oh, Father is doing something strange.” That was
what we thought, but actually Father followed a precise strategy by
which he would make such declarations.
June 13, 1998 the 360 Million Couples’ Holy Marriage
Blessing Ceremony was held throughout the world. At the same time,
Father proclaimed the Unification Blessing Ceremony of people in the
spirit world with people on Earth. Now, when a woman is here on earth
and a man is passed away, for example, Father could bless this living
person and dead person together as a couple. Father opened the way
for spirit beings and physical beings to receive The Blessing.
February 12, 1999, Father began the ancestor liberation ceremony
at the Cheongpyeong Heaven and Earth Training Center. He opened the
training center for this purpose. The first seven generations in
one’s direct blood lineage could be liberated, and after that
liberation for older generations continued. Father told us to
liberate and bless up to ten generations. Now it has changed to 420
How many generations did you liberate? How many generations did
you bless? Why is this important? You have to understand this. Now,
there are so many people—more than maybe several trillion, we
don’t know—in the spirit world. Therefore, when Father
hadn't yet begun this, the entire spirit world was dark. No one,
except Jesus, was of God’s blood lineage. After Father began
the Blessing Ceremonies and our Blessed Couples went to the spirit
world, they were also of God’s side and part of God’s
blood lineage. How many were there? A very small number, while
Satan’s side had several trillion. Therefore, the spirit world
was completely dark.
If you read Father’s words, Father says many times: the time
will come when Heaven gives disease and medicine together. Do you
understand what this means? The spirit world works and gives disease
and also gives medicine to cure. The time will come when, if people
do not listen to Father’s message, the spirit world will give
them disease, and when they repent they will receive the cure. Such
things did not happen yet. Why? Because the spirit world is
completely dominated by Satan’s side. When God’s side of
the spirit world occupies more than half of the spirit world, the
good spirit world can dominate this whole world.
What do we have to do? All of us Blessed Couples, do we have to go
to Cheongpyeong and do ancestor liberation and ancestor Blessing, or
not? We have to do that. Our members, especially old members, do not
know this. When we say, “Did you go to Cheongpyeong?”
they say, “Oh, Cheongpyeong is doing this to make money.”
This is not so.
How many good spirits do we have in the spirit world? Since 1999,
we have been doing this ancestor liberation, and this year in October
we had a special festival in Cheongpyeong. How many do we have now?
480 billion good spirits. Still, it’s not much. This number
should be increased rapidly. How?
When we finish liberating 210 generations, how many will that be?
When you liberated your ancestors and Blessed 210 generations—
your husband’s side going four lines, the wife’s side
going four lines, and together making eight lines—how many will
there be? Less than 4000. With each number, can we reach up to 480
billion people? No. There are not only our ancestors in our life.
There are many evil spirits around us, at home, in the neighborhood,
on the streets, everywhere. They also need to get liberated and go to
the spirit world and get education.
Spirit world education
When I made the Cheon Seong Gyeong, I asked my colleagues
to find Father’s words when he said he wanted to establish an
education institute in the spirit world. To have ancestor liberation,
there must be an education institute in the spirit world. Otherwise
we cannot do this.
Up until the time that Father established one, do you think Satan
allowed the establishment of education institutes in the spirit
world? No. If that was established and spirits got an education, then
what would happen to Satan? He would lose his power; therefore he
never allowed the establishment of an education institute in the
However, in 1984, Heung Jin Nim [the second son of Father and
Mother Moon] died, and when Father sent him to the spirit world, he
said, “I am sending Heung Jin instead of Father.” In
1989, Dae Mo Nim, mother of True Mother, passed away, and Father also
gave her a mission: “You go to the spirit world in place of
Mother.” In the spirit world, from that time, Father and
Mother’s representatives began to work there. Jeongseong
(devotional offering), prayer work, they did all kinds of
things. Other members, Blessed Couples, who went to the spirit world,
also worked with them, and all this combined with Father’s work
here allowed Father to establish an education institute in the spirit
world. This was actually revolutionary work. Until Father came, there
was no institute.
Because of this, Divine Principle must be updated accordingly. We
say in the resurrection theory that all the spirits want to come down
on Earth to us, and on our spiritual foundation they can get
resurrection. Is that right, for spirits to get resurrection, to have
the physical foundation of men on Earth? That is written in the
Divine Principle, but is that right? They would have to listen to the
Divine Principle and practice it. For them to get resurrection they
would have to come down, and when we listen to the Divine Principle
they would have to come and listen with us. However, after education
is established in the spirit world, they can learn the Divine
Principle in the spirit world. Which is easier, to hear directly from
the spirit world or to come down and listen to it? Which is more
difficult? We cannot compare it: in the spirit world it is much
When we witness to people, is it easy for you to witness to people
and to bring them to our church? They deny there is a God. They don’t
know God exists. They don’t know that the spirit world exists.
They don’t know they have their own spirit man inside their
physical body. They don’t know that. It is very difficult to
make them understand and bring them to our church. But in the spirit
world, do they know of God’s existence? Of course they know.
They are living in the spirit world, so there is no need to explain
that. They know everything, so it’s very easy to bring people.
Not only that: on this Earth people say, “Oh I have to eat, I
have to wear clothes, have a house and a job to pay my living costs.
I have to feed my children and educate them, so I cannot come.”
This is what they say. In the spirit world, you don’t have to
eat. You don’t need to worry about clothing. You don’t
have to have a house. No job is needed. Everything is there already.
For them, is it easy or difficult to come? Very easy. Therefore,
witnessing in the spirit world is much easier than witnessing on the
Therefore, Father is putting more emphasis on salvation of spirits
in the spirit world. To help Father’s plan, what do we have to
do? We can cooperate with Father, go to Cheongpyeong and participate
in the ancestor liberation and ancestor blessing ceremonies.
To receive The Blessing, we have to receive the Holy Wine Ceremony
and the Holy Marriage Blessing Ceremony. By drinking holy wine we can
change the blood lineage. But holy wine does not exist in the spirit
world. Holy wine is only present on the Earth because Father made it
to save people on Earth, those who have a physical body. Therefore,
in order to receive The Blessing, all the spirits have to come down
to Earth after they receive the 100-day training in the spirit world.
We go to Cheongpyeong to hold The Blessing Ceremony for those in the
spirit world. They come and we hold their Holy Wine Ceremony cups for
them to drink there, spiritually. In this way, they can receive The
Blessing. They have to come down and through us they can be blessed
and have their blood lineage changed. Therefore, we are very
important. This is most important, and if all members do it, the
spirit world will change quickly.
Several years ago, Father asked Hoon Mo Nim [Hyo Nam Kim, the
physical representative of Dae Mo Nim], “How is ancestor
liberation going?” Hoon Mo Nim could not lie to Father. She
couldn’t answer right away and took some time, so Father knew
the answer and was very angry. At that time he told us we have to
bless up to 210 generations. He did not state so directly a number
before because he understood that all the members knew the importance
of the ancestor liberation and ancestor blessing ceremony. Father
thought that because, after hard work and much sacrifice, he could
establish a spiritual education center in the spirit world and have
the ancestor liberation and blessing ceremony, that all members
understood this as well. However when he found that they did not, he
was so sad.
From that time on, whenever he went to America from Korea, he
asked all the leaders to come to the airport. Even from the airport,
he was emphatic that “all the members do this.” One thing
I cannot understand is, even though Father said that, no official
letter was sent out. I never saw it. This is our situation now.
Father was so sad. We have to go along with Father.
Satan’s nation surrenders
Education has been established and we began ancestor liberation,
and on March 21, 1999, Satan surrendered. This is a historical event.
In the spirit world, Lucifer and Satan is no more. His subordinates,
however, continue doing the same thing. After Kim Il Sung died, Kim
Jong-il and Kim Jong Un continued on the same path as their ancestor.
Satan, first of all Satans, went away, but still the followers are
working hard. Therefore, we need to make a new revolution to make the
number of good spirits exceed the number of evil spirits. This is our
After Satan’s nation surrendered, Father gave another
declaration: the Declaration of the Cosmic Realm of Unification and
Liberation by our True Parents. You know 9/9 day? September 9, 1999
(9/9/99, and also 9:09:09). Plus, Father’s age was 79. Every
time Father does something, change comes to the spiritual world and
physical world. This 9/9 day came and the wall between Heaven and
Earth began to crumble, so now it is free to travel between this
world and the spirit world. This time has come.
The next day, September 10, 1999, he announced three ten day. This
is the day when numbers from one to ten were dedicated to God’s
side and the Old Testament, New Testament and Complete Testament ages
were completely indemnified and restored. Everything was cleansed.
Did you hear that Father failed something when he did his work?
Did you ever hear that? No, you didn’t. I was always with
Father and I never heard that, but in his words, he said he failed
once. You know when that was? It’s in the Cheon Seong
Gyeong. After 1960, Father began a seven-year course, three
times. It ended in 1981, but he did not say anything about that and
he declared the beginning of the Completed Testament Age in 1993. Why
did he not say anything in 1981? Actually, that time period was a
failure. At that time, God expected things from us but we could not
reach that, and in 1984, Heung Jin Nim passed away and the same year,
Father went to Danbury prison. We had to repent at that time, because
we were not united with True Parents. Do you remember? Older members
Did you hear about the “wilderness age”? The
wilderness age came. Why did it come? When Moses failed, when his
followers did not unite with him, a wilderness age came. See? In
Father’s time, Father went through South America and had a very
terrible time there. He had to go through all kinds of hardships to
The realm of the fourth Adam
After Satan surrendered and 9/9 day and three ten day came, Father
declared another one: the Declaration of the Day of Blessing and
Liberation for the Whole Cosmos, October 23, 1999. In 1999 he did
many things. You know why? It was the end of the 20th century. The
next year, a new century was to begin, so he wanted to finish as much
as possible and made many proclamations in 1999. Satan’s
surrender came in 1999 along with many things.
On October 24, 1999, Father declared the coming of the realm of
the fourth Adam. You remember that? Father became fourth Adam. Up to
a third Adam, first Adam failed, second Adam failed and with third
Adam there was also some failure, therefore all those things were
cleansed so Father could stand in the position of fourth Adam. Fourth
Adam has nothing to do with failure.
Father’s position changed to fourth Adam, and then on
November 7, 1999, Cheongpyeong training center added a new building
and on December 12, 1999 ancestor blessing ceremonies began. This was
almost at the end of 1999. Through ancestor blessing, spirits come
completely to God’s side, because with Satan’s blood
lineage they are still under the dominion of Satan but when their
blood lineage changes to God’s side through The Blessing, they
come under the dominion of God. This is why ancestor blessing is so
important. By this, spirit’s blood lineage can change.
2000-2012: Returning the cosmos to God
The next year, June 29, 2000, was the Declaration of the Return of
the Cosmos to God. By this, now God can have the whole cosmos back.
January 13, 2001 was the Coronation for the Kingship of God. For
God to become king, he needs people not only on the Earth but in the
spirit world to be His people. Through the change of blood lineage
God came to have His people in the spirit world. First there were
very few: Jesus and Blessed Couples who passed away; but because of
the ancestor blessing the number of spirits of God’s blood
lineage began to increase rapidly. Therefore in 2001 God could
restore His Kingship. By reading about the Coronation of God’s
Kingship Ceremony, we can understand how Father precisely designed
his providence. If you don’t know this, thinking, “Oh,
Father’s just doing something,” then you cannot connect,
you cannot understand the meaning. Whenever Father does something,
there is always deep significance there.
Father’s most important mission was to restore Adam and Eve.
Because of the Fall of Adam and Eve, Adam and Eve were lost and Satan
came into existence, and Adam and Eve’s children all became
Satan’s people, of his blood lineage. What Father had to do was
restore Adam and Eve’s original position back to God and
restore the people who were multiplied by fallen Adam and Eve. That
was the main thing Father had to do, and Father succeeded. True
Parents became third Adam and Eve and began restoring men and women
on Earth and spirit men and women in the spirit world. Because Father
opened this way, as time passes, the numbers will increase. It was so
important to make the way for all people to be saved by our Father.
Up to this you understand easily, but there is another aspect of
this important mission you don’t understand. What was God’s
desire when He created Adam and Eve? Only to multiply children and
establish God’s Kingdom on Earth and in Heaven? Do you think
that was all? There is more. Most importantly, God is an invisible
God, but wants to be a visible God. God wants to have substantial
form, because as invisible God He cannot be the Parent of the whole
universe effectively. God knew that, therefore the reason for which
He created Adam and Eve was to take their form as His form and His
body. This was the most important thing. Father put emphasis on this
in his work.
In 2010 and 2011, Father repeated the same thing all the time. You
know what that was? “Assembly for the settlement of the True
Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind, who, as God’s
embodiment, proclaim the word.” We had this meeting on July, 8
2010 in Korea, July 24, 2010 in the USA, 2010, August 23, 2010 in
Israel, with the same text, November 22, 2010 in New York, November
27, 2010 in Las Vegas and December 4, 2010 in Seoul, Korea, all with
the same title. Whenever he did Hoon Dok Hwe, he always read this
text. Why did he repeat it? He never did such a thing in the past.
This is so important.
Here I am holding a copy of the lecture text Father used when he
spoke. This has big letters because Father’s eyes were not so
good, but he made a copy of this and gave it to all in attendance.
Why did he do that? He never did this before.
In 2011, he did the same assembly with the same title, but in this
second one he put “cosmic,” meaning the spirit world and
physical world together. “Cosmic Assembly for the Settlement of
the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind, Who, as God’s
Embodiment, Proclaim the Word.” Whenever he did Hoon Dok Hwe in
the morning in Korea, which was every morning, he read this address
each time. On True Parents’ Day, True Children’s Day, he
also did the same thing. He loved this message so much. We published
two books: one is the Cheon Seong Gyeong (Heaven's Holy
Scripture) and the other is Peace Scripture. Peace
Scripture is the collection of Father’s speeches, but we
did not put this address in Peace Scripture. We put this
speech in the Cheon Seong Gyeong, because this is a special
one. There is such a deep meaning in this text.
On March 5, 2011 in Las Vegas and April 24, 2011 in Incheon,
Korea, he used this same text, and this is not final. In this book,
he added onto the last page. His original text ended on page 73—but
on the next page, 74, he added, by hand, that the providential final
purpose was achieved. It was July 3, 2011 by the heavenly calendar,
so this was almost September. This was not the last addition. Again,
on page 75, he wrote a declaration sentence: “Greatest Victory
Memorial Day of Cheon Il Guk.” He never said this before. Why
did he say this? Here, he said True Parents and True God became one.
Now I will read this, on page 74. It’s written in Korean but
I'll translate into English. “The final purpose of the
providence has been achieved.1. Perfected, 2. Concluded, and 3.
Completed,” he repeated this three times here, and said, “Reign
of tranquility and prosperity is completed. Year two of the heavenly
foundation, third day of the seventh month by the heavenly calendar,
2011. The age of Hoon Dok Hwe is completed and perfected.” Many
members read this but they don’t know what it means. What do
you think “the age of Hoon Dok Hwe is completed and perfected”
means? This means that by doing Hoon Dok Hwe, we can make our spirit
selves grow to perfection. It means that, because God created Man
with His words, we fail with the loss of God’s words. By
reading God’s words daily, our spirit man can grow and finally
can become perfected. By this you can understand the importance of
Hoon Dok Hwe. This declaration here is a signed contract between
Heavenly Father and Father, not just a declaration. When Father said
this, God’s guarantee was behind it. Father is not just saying
it, but it is approved by Heavenly Father and Heavenly Father
guaranteed this. Therefore if we do Hoon Dok Hwe as Father is
emphasizing, results will come. Is it easy to get rid of all the
fallen, evil and self-centered nature? It is very difficult. However
by doing Hoon Dok Hwe, we can do it easily.
The next page, page 75, says: “Proclamation—the
Memorial Day of the Greatest Victory of Cheon Il Guk (God’s
Heavenly Kingdom).”That was November 17-18, 2011, between two
days. This is by the heavenly calendar; therefore this is almost the
end of 2011, the last part of December. Father worked so hard to
bring this day. Because of this he came to Las Vegas and then New
York and back to Korea to do it again. It is unhealthy for old men to
fly long distances. With the time lag, your body loses control, but
Father did it anyway. He knew that, and I think he also already knew
he didn’t have much time left of his life. Therefore he was so
hasty and busy and worked so hard.
Here he wrote, “The record of the eternal victory is
completed. It is finalized in perfection and completion. Aju.”
This is what Father said. He signed here, dated, and added a very
important final note, “The oneness of the True Parents and True
God is complete. God is perfected, concluded and completed. Aju.”
He wrote here, “God is perfected.” By who is God
perfected? By True Parents. Father said that God, too, is growing. If
God has no physical or spiritual body, then what grows? God’s
heart grows because of all the things God faces. God’s heart
becomes bigger and bigger. God is now perfected; what does this mean?
God wish was to have substantial form, and now the wish is fulfilled.
Father said God was perfected, by True Parents. Was there anybody who
made God perfect before in history? No, never. Never before, never
after. Father is the only one who could do this.
Here you understand the importance of the unity of Father and
Mother. If Father and Mother are not united, how can they ride with
God? Can they ride with God? No. Now with Father in the spirit world,
where will he come? Where will he come down to when he comes to
Earth? To Mother. You have to understand that. Without Mother, Father
cannot become True Parents. Who is most important to Father? Mother
is the most important being. The unity between Father and Mother is
so important. Therefore, they have equal value. If there is no
Mother, there’s no Father. If there is no Father, there’s
no Mother. They are equal. Some people say that Mother is lower than
Father. No. If you admit that, you are saying that women must be much
lower than men, but at the same time you insist on equality between
men and women. In God there is male and female; they are equal.
Without one, the other cannot sustain. Therefore, when I explain the
importance of Mother, I say that in God there is a Mother God and
Father God. If you understand all of this, the only true explanation
is that as the oneness between True Parents and God is completed,
Father must come to Mother, no exception.
2012, the next year, was the final meeting: “Assembly to
Inherit and Accomplish the Opening of the Age of the Victory,
Liberation and Completion of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and
Humankind.” In Japan they had the “Cosmic Assembly to
Declare the Age of the Victory, Liberation and Completion of the True
Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind.” In Japan and Korea, we
did this, including six locations in Japan, March 6, 2012.
How great are our True Parents? You can understand that now. In
history there was no one who did this much work, even if you compare
the work of Jesus to that of True Parents. Jesus could not bring a
single person to God’s blood lineage. Jesus could not do
anything like that. He elevated people somewhat and many went to
paradise with Jesus, but they were still of Satan’s blood
lineage. God could not control them. They could not enter God’s
dominion. We Blessed Families are of God’s blood lineage.
Therefore, even if we do something wrong, we don’t go to
Satan’s side. We remain in God’s dominion. There is a
difference. Satan cannot take us to his side, because the blood
lineage is completely different. Father made this possible for us.
We have many difficulties here around us. Do they matter so much,
do you think? Because Father finished his mission, there is nothing
to worry about. Many sad things happen, and of course we regret them
and hope for them not to happen, but even though they happen, the
providence still goes forward. Time passes. All the people on Earth
and the spirits in the spirit world will undoubtedly come back to
God’s side. This year, I had an interview with Segye Ilbo,
and said that we in this century—all men and women on Earth—we
will see the great day of change come. Everyone will witness with
their eyes the great change of God and the providence come on Earth
and in the spirit world.
So, is our future bright or what? Bright, right? I hope we all can
do our part and share this glory and honor with our True Parents.
