God's Peace Kingdom is Our Eternal Homeland
Rev. Sun Myung Moon - Four City Speaking Tour
Good afternoon, family. I wish that each one of you could see yourselves from this vantage point because you are the most beautiful people in the world. Yes, you are. And it is good for us to be here. Why? Because we are the blessed of all people on the face of the earth, right here, right now. We are in the right place and we ought to give God praise for having brought us here tonight.
I would like to present to some and introduce to others the most incredible person I have ever met in my life. I use the descriptive adjective "incredible" because it is almost impossible to believe that a man could have a heart so big that he would seek to embrace all of humanity as his children. Not just simply in word but in deed. A man who has such a heartistic relationship with God that it extends to each and every one of us here in this place that has been made sacred now by our gathering here. But also who extends his love to every one of the six billion people on the face of the earth.
His love is real. It is overwhelming that he has become so alive with God, our Heavenly Father, the divine Creator, that he seeks to possess the heart of God in loving all of humanity, desiring that each one of us would have the fullest of life that God has desired for us from the beginning of time. And someone who would want us to reconnect with Godís true lineage by seeking to call us to fidelity as the faithful attendants of our God.
Whenever anyone of such magnitude comes upon the face of the earth, he is always going to be maligned and maltreated, misunderstood and misrepresented. But this man of God who has a triple A rating, anointed, appointed and approved, this man Ė this man Ė has shown us in a very fervent, passionate and consistent way how to truly love your enemies, how to embrace them, how to forgive them and heal them. Here is a man who looks beyond race, color, creed, ethnicity, a man who looks beyond religion and who desires to unite all of us as one family under God. He and his beloved bride, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, with 13 beautiful children, have sought to live their lives for the sake of others, that they have given all that they possess in order to surrender their minds and hearts totally to God.
They stand in that central position as the True Parents of heaven and earth because they desire for us to experience heaven right here, right now. For this is the time, this is the time for us to hear the message, to know that he comes to us with a heart overflowing, teeming with love. This man of God, who is so gentle, so loving, so compassionate, yet so tough, so disciplined. He challenges us every time. This man who has forsaken everything in order to live for God and Godís people, this man is the man of this generation and of this age and of this time who will usher in the Kingdom of God, who will bring in the Second Coming, who will allow us to know that the Messiah is in our midst and we need not be afraid to embrace the One who comes with the powerful message.
For now is the time to rebuild the family! Now is the time to restore the community! Now is the time to renew the nation and the world! Now is the time for Godís peace kingdom! Now is Godís time! Now is Godís time! Now is Godís time! Now is Godís time! And the one who brings God plan to us is the True Parent of heaven and earth, the Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon!
