The Words of Young Oon Kim
March 1 by the lunar calendar, which is April 10 by the solar calendar, is the day we celebrate as Parents' Day to commemorate the event that took place in April, 1960. At that time, God blessed our Leader and his bride in marriage. He blessed them to be the God Parents of a new humanity.
Preceding the blessing, our Leader had to fulfill a number of conditions which took him 14 years. Thus his blessing was realized when he was 40 years old.
Following their marriage, the Good Parents completed the Four Positions with their children. Thus, the Family became God's earthly Center for the Divine flow of give and take.
This action of give and take will expand in all directions and form a spherical movement. The spherical movement of give and take is growing from family to clan; from clan to tribe; and from there to nation, world, universe, and whole cosmos. This great cosmic movement of give and take of energy or love must start from a true family. Thus, the God-centered First Family serves as the pivot of the entire movement of give and take of Divine vibration.
We have learned that only through the action of give and take of love can God and man alike feel joy, happiness, and power. God created man in order to feel joy and happiness. It may sound selfish to say that God created man and the universe in order to feel joy and happiness. However, when God feels joy and happiness through perfect relationship of give and take with man and all His creation, the joyful and happy vibration released from Him brings great joy and happiness to all creation.
In a family, when the father and mother are depressed and melancholy, what: is the atmosphere of the home like? Isn't the feeling of the whole house and family depressed and melancholy? But, when the father and mother are joyful and happy, isn't the whole house happy and joyful? When the Heavenly Father has full give and take of love, when He feels full joy, joyful vibration releases from Him; will it not affect all creatures and people?
God is far more sensitive than we. We can see how deeply He has suffered in the past while His entire creation revolted against Him. Just imagine how greatly different the whole world would be if the spring vibration had been released from the beginning of history! How hard and long God has been working to bring about this New day! How happy the Father was to find our Leader and how anxious the Father was and is to see our Leader fulfilling His mission! How much God cherishes our Leader’s family!
It has not been an easy course for our Leader to fulfill his mission! To see how significant his fulfillment is, I would like to quote St. Paul's message given through a clairaudient medium in San Francisco. In May, 1962.
I. Brethren, allow me the privilege of communicating with you about things to come. Oh, how I wish this could be reproduced in other. languages, besides the one I am using now,
Praise be unto our Father, the God of creation and the majestic spirit of Jesus Christ and His Agent, the Lord of the New Creation and the Completed Age of Restoration.
Our Father's heart bleeds for you, my children, when He sees how perverted the Gospel of His dear Son Jesus has been presented to this dying generation of blind and weak-minded individuals. How great is our Father's long-suffering and patience with the minds and hearts of His creation!
How Satan has used his ungodly influence through his perverted agents to delude the minds of men!
This is the dawning of a New Age and how happy it makes the Father's heart to see it come to earth.
II. Spirit world is going through great changes that will cause great changes spiritually and great divisions amongst the soul, of men. Conditions have been established where men have to decide for themselves whether or not it is going to be the Blessed Lord they serve or the satanic evil spirits, as they have done in the past.
Woe be unto this perverse generation if it is for Satan they stand. For this is the Day of God's vengeance against the wiles of Satan: God, our Father, is avenging Himself and drawing to Himself pure men and women to be His adopted daughters and sons.
Truly, this new Generation of Restoration has been going on for over two years since the Marriage Feast of the Lamb took place in 1960.
God knows, in His all-loving heart, that His goodness shall overcome all evil and this world, once again, shall be His, as it should be, and the Prince of the Powers of Darkness, Satan himself, shall be no more.
III. How man's ignorance has perverted my Epistles into a nothingness beyond comprehension. I shall have to do a great, work in establishing again the foundation I should have laid on earth. I confess to you, Children of the Cosmic Day, that my work on earth was a poor one, and great is the restitution I must make in order to restore my dignity in the Kingdom of God.
Children shall find their Father in due season and His Word shall prevail; this is the dispensation of restoration. The Father, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, using the Lord of God's New Creation, the Mighty Angel of the East, the Judge of all the world, as their vehicle of expression, are bringing on the earth plane the Spiritual Heaven and Earth. (That the Father in heaven intended in His original plan of creation.)
Those of you who say: "Yes I believe, yes I believe, " try yourselves, test yourselves, know what it is you are saying.
Do you really realize that the Day in which you live is the Day of Creation of a New Heaven and a New Earth? Have you realized, as all the old and New Testament spirits in the spirit world have realized, that TODAY is the Day of Salvation?
IV. Today the words of my prophecy of two: thousand years ago have come to pass. The voice of the Archangel and the sound of the Trumpet is being heard; and the Lord Jesus, Himself, has come to finish all that he has left undone, not in the fleshly body of two thousand years ago, but through the agency of another Son of God and Fellow Servant, Lord and Master of this Age, the Lord of the New Creation. Behold! Again other words of my prophecy of-two -thousand years ago-have-come to pass. Behold, you are all new creatures in Christ Jesus!
V. This is the Day that Jesus spoke of when he said: "That Day neither you, nor I, nor the angels know, but the Father only." This is the Day the true worshipper worships the Father in spirit and in truth, for the Father desires such to worship Him.
Today, Brethren, the Temple is the Lord, and He in His Office as the Lamb of the Universal Altar is the Light of the Temple.
The Lord of this New Creation has paid a painful price for the opportunity to serve mankind in this capacity. He has spiritually bled internally and cried bitter tears for you and the spirit world. The spirit world owes him a debt of gratitude I am certain it will never be able to pay, though they try through eons of eternity.
Children, hear my voice; great is the Day of Deliverance. Our Father is moving continuously for the good of mankind.
X.... Harken to Him, for this is the Day of Judgment. You must buy gold that has been tried in the fire. You must use all of your talents for the Father's Kingdom. A love for Jesus means a love for your New Leader, the King of this New Creation, the Lord of the Second Advent. The spirit is even now falling upon all flesh. Jesus has no other glory outside of that which he receives through the New Lord of Creation, his Divine Successor.
XI You have heard me say in my Epistles all have sinned, all fall short of the Glory of God. What does this mean? It means that through the original sin none is righteous -- NO, NOT ONE. It means that all have a common guilt, a common sin.
This must be gotten rid of, for it is a stench in the nostrils of God, our Divine Father.
The Jews fell away because they thought that the Old Testament was sufficient for them. Their rejection of Jesus is proof enough They were blinded to the fact that I was the fulfillment of those scriptures.
I bear witness to the fact that the Old Testament and the New Testament combined are not sufficient to live by in the New Cosmic Age we have ascended into. To be saved, every man, woman and child must commence their mission before they leave this earth plane. And before they can do this they must find the reason for the original sin and what original sin is.
Perfection and resurrection can only achieved through work, and that work must be done in the body; the spirit of truth demands it.
XII. In conclusion, let me say, Brethren, the world will judge and persecute you in the Day of Judgment if you do not bear witness to the truth. If you do bear witness, I promise you divine aid from the spirits of the up most realms of spirit world. All religions have corrupted themselves. Now they, the ones who were originally chosen for this work, have been denied entry as a unit, and only those who trust in our Father's New Messiah will gain entry.
Light your feeble lamps of Truth. The Spirit of God will keep them burning. The Oil of God's presence will be the oil in the Lamps of Truth. Be a fiery torch for God in these last treacherous and cunning days.
With love I pray for you and with you. Love the ones whom the Lord has set in authority over you. and keep the faith that has been delivered unto you. I will communicate with you again in many ways. Beware of the times. Trust in the Father's mighty will.
Even the people outside of our group feel today a new vibration which, in varied degrees, is now going forth into all aspects of human life. Those in science, the arts, and philosophy, as well as the ones in spiritual work, feel differently and think differently than in previous ages. Dr. Fetler, a professor of philosophy who presented a lecture series at the Washington Center, said in his lecture on existentialism that this 20th century is unique and completely different from all preceding centuries. As I wrote in the Preface of the Principle: the gloomy cosmic winter has gone and the cosmic spring is here. Because of this new cosmic vibration which is changing the spiritual atmosphere of the whole cosmos, the time is much more favorable to the work of our movement.. As our Leader would say, "Our time has now come!"
Even though it may be rather subtle and in small degree, nevertheless, since 1960, a new spring vibration is being released from God. This vibration will be released more intensively and with increasing effect as the foundation expands.
According to statistics, the suicide rate is highest in the springtime. I think it is because the warm vibration of spring stimulates the feelings of people. It brings to people of genuine heart a light and joyful mood. Spring heightens their intrinsic feeling of goodness. On the contrary, spring brings to those who are depressed, melancholy, and despairing of heart more intense sadness. In this Cosmic Spring, the new kind of vibration causes more sadness, depression, and melancholy to those who are living in the old vibration. Probably this is the reason why so many people feel inner turmoil more acutely than before. A sea filled with warm currents or cold currents alone is peaceful. But when a cold current meets a warm one, the sea is rough. A great warm current is coming into the cosmos. We must blend and warm our personal currents to meet it.
It is therefore very important that we please God by being in harmony with Him. By bringing Him joy, we enable Him to release spring-vibration to the cosmos. Likewise, it is important that our Leader feel cheerful and happy in us. His vibration also affects the whole group, and he cannot give forth vibrations of happiness unless he is happy with us.
The Good Parents of the new world will choose and bless true men and women to be the good parents of each nation who will provide the basis of the new vibration for their nations. The other night I had an opportunity to see a military pageant. I enjoyed the beauty of order and discipline of the military life. One of the programs which impressed me very much was the stirring display of 50 state flags.
There were two flags for each of 50 states, making 100 flags. The bearers of these 100 huge and colorful flags formed a large diamond and many other shapes. I realized anew that America is the union of 50 states. I was struck with the idea that this union of 50 states is equivalent to a union of 50 nations. As I watched the parade, I thought, "One Abraham is not enough. We need 50 Abrahams -- one for each state. One Moses is not enough -- 50 Moseses must emerge on this land."
I want you to be the Abrahams and Moseses for America. When I think of Abraham and Moses, I recall their earnest prayers recorded in the Old Testament! Genesis 18:20-32:
Then the Lord said, "Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is very great and their sin is very grave, I will go down to see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry which has come to me and if not, I will know." So the men turned from there and went toward Sodom; but Abraham still stood before the Lord. Then Abraham drew near, and said, "Wilt thou indeed destroy the righteous with the wicked? Suppose there are fifty righteous within the city; wilt thou then destroy the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous who are in it? Far be it from thee to do such a thing, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous fare as the wicked! Far be that from thee! Shall' not the Judge of all the earth do right?" And the Lord said, "If I find at Sodom fifty righteous in the city, I will spare the whole place for their sake. Abraham answered, "Behold, I have taken upon myself to speak to the Lord, I who am but dust and ashes. Suppose five of the fifty righteous are lacking? Wilt thou destroy the whole city for lack of five? “And he said, "I will not destroy it if I find forty-five there." Again he spoke to him, and said, “Suppose forty are found there," He answered, "For the sake of forty I will not do it." Then he said, "Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak. Suppose thirty are. found there." He answered, "I will not do it, if I find thirty there.." He said, "Behold, I have taken upon myself to speak to the Lord. Suppose twenty are found there? He answered, "For the sake of twenty I will not destroy it." Then he said, "Oh let not the Lord be angry, and I will speak again but this once. Suppose ten are found there." He answered, “For the sake of ten I Will not destroy it."
And the Lord said to Moses, “I have seen this people, and behold, it is a stiff-necked people; now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them; but of you I will make a great nation." But Moses besought the Lord his God, and said, "O Lord, why does thy wrath burn hot against thy people, whom thou hast brought forth out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand? Why should the Egyptians say, 'With evil intent did he bring them forth, to slay them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth’? Turn from thy fierce wrath, and repent of this evil against thy people.. Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, thy servants, to whom thou didst swear by thine own self, and didst say to them, 'I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven and all this land that I have promised I will give to your descendants, and they shall inherit it forever. "' And the Lord repented of the evil which he thought to do to his people. So Moses returned to the Lord. and said, “Alas, this people have sinned a great sin; they have made for themselves gods of gold. But now, if thou wilt forgive their sin and if not, blot me, I pray thee, out of thy book which thou hast written."
This nation needs at least 50 Abrahams and Moseses who offer the self-sacrificing and redemptive prayers for the American people.
These are the people whom our Leader is looking for to bless them to be the good fathers and mothers of new America, on whose foundation the Kingdom of God will be established on this land.
