Re: Further Concerning the Cheon Il Guk Blessing, True Parents' Birthday and the Cheon Il Guk Activity
We sincerely thank you and your family for the faith you are demonstrating at this time. The response to Father's call to secure the Fatherland is deeply comforting to God's heart. Approximately 1000 families have signed up already to come and the momentum is gaining. However to achieve Father's direction concerning 2400 to Korea, we need diligent follow-up and communication to help every family send a representative. Please form coordinated outreach to all families. The Cheon Il Guk Blessing is the completion level fulfillment of the Marriage of the Lamb. True Parents themselves will be participating in wedding attire. All are invited.
Dr. Yang has appointed the AFC leaders as central coordinators of the historic effort bringing 2400 to the Fatherland, working with the selection committees. The selection committee now becomes the basis for the outreach and securing of the 2400. AFC leaders have been assigned for each church region as the central coordinators of all communication and activities, working with the selection committees in relation to 2400 coming from America to the Cheon Il Guk Blessing and Activity. Please give them your full support. To bring 2400, each region and state must set up a serious mobilization team. Centering on the selection committee, we must call every family, mail the memos to every family (email and fax is not enough). Visit every family if possible. Communication and expressing True Parents' love at this time is most important.
2400 To Korea - At least one representative per family - more than one is encouraged. Although the universal direction is that all blessed families must send one representative, many families have asked if they can bring more. Please do so! Father just mentioned that the ideal situation is that both spouses come. If two come from your family, it counts as two toward the 2400. (Each representative of your family who participates in both the Cheon Il Guk blessing and activity (visitation of Korean towns) counts as one of the 2400. If your couple comes and brings two teenage children it would count as four representatives). Application Form For The Cheon Il Guk Blessing And Activity.
All must fill out the Cheon Il Guk blessing and activity registration form. This form must be filled out online at the Family Federation website ( <http://www.familyfed.org/> www.familyfed.org) Filling out the registration form online will greatly expedite the gathering of this important information. Ground transportation in Korea will be based on the information submitted on this form; therefore all those coming to Korea are required to complete it. Registration forms should be submitted no later than Saturday, January 18.
Importance and Meaning of the 2400
If we read The Way of Unification in God's Providence - The Theoretical Foundation for the Unification of East and West South and North (80th Birthday edition) there is a great deal revealed about this particular time. In it, True Father talks of 7000 coming one day for the final liberation of Korea. Father said earlier this week that the 7200 (2400 from the three primary nations) is a providentially significant number that must be fulfilled.
Importance and Meaning of the Cheon Il Guk Blessing
The third and final stage of Blessing - All blessed couples must attend Theme and Preliminary Title of the Blessing: "Special Holy Blessing to Open the Gate to the Cheon Il Guk". This blessing represents the third and final stage of all blessings. First was the Family level or Church level Blessing of you and your spouse. Second, was the Registration Blessing (representing a national level), third and finally is the Cheon Il Guk Blessing representing the Unified Nation of Cosmic Peace - Cheon Il Guk (Note: Those who did not participate in the registration blessing can participate in Cheon Il Guk blessing and activity.) Father reiterated again this morning that - All blessed couples are required to attend.
This is the final stage of the confrontation between good and evil. For Hoon Dok Hae, Father has been reading the speeches concerning True Parents' Holy Wedding in 1960, especially concerning the enormous effort by the Satanic world to crush True Parents and stop the Blessing. d. Dr. Yang mentioned the upheaval of world events and the world tension centering on the relationship of America, North Korea and South Korea parallel the events surrounding the Blessing in 1960. The forces of evil are seeking to crush or stop the Cheon Il Guk Blessing. This is one reason why the leaders are in a 50 day condition at Chung Pyung and so much sacrifice is being requested of all families. Maximum faith and indemnity are being offered at this time to secure the Cheon Il Guk Blessing and the protection of the Fatherland.
Cheon Il Guk Blessing - Attire and Photo of Spouse
The ideal situation is that both spouses attend together. However, Father has emphasized that at least one spouse must attend the Blessing at Chung Pyung. If only one spouse attends at Chung Pyung he/she must have an 8 x 10 photo of their spouse. The attire is the Holy Robe. Father has asked that something should be added to the Holy Robes to make them special for this blessing. In response to this FFWPUI is providing a beautiful Blessing Scarf that will be worn by every participant.
Ancestor Liberation Ceremony:
Both the Award recipients and the 2400 will receive a special ancestor liberation sometime during the period between February 5 - 8.
ACLC Clergy to Korea
Only three representatives are coming - more will come to proclaim the Clouds of Witnesses at a date in the near future. Clergy are not being encouraged to come at this time. In the near future, ACLC clergy will compose another wave of representatives from the Elder Son Nation to secure the Fatherland and expand Cheon Il Guk. At this time only three representatives of ACLC are scheduled to come. Special Donations - Rev. Kwak and Rev. Hwang have asked the worldwide movement to make an offering from each continent for True Parents' Birthday Celebration and Cheon Il Guk blessing. They decided that every representative will be asked to make a special offering. Although the burden is already great, a $300 donation is being asked of all who attend (the Cheon Il Guk Awardees and the 2400.) This donation is a special donation for the Birthday celebration. Each nation has a portion of responsibility. As mentioned above, the Korean and Japanese families have a very heavy responsibility. They will cover three fourths of the offering. Rev. Kwak has asked America to cover a major portion. All who donate the $300 will receive a complimentary copy of the We Will Stand - 50 State Tour - this leather bound edition is similar in size to the Day of Hope books. It features full color pictures and historical records of each state and their event on the 50 states tour.
Proclamations, testimonies and photos of the special clergy and elected officials who welcomed True Parents on this historic tour to save the Second Israel are included. This will be a treasure for your family of the time when Father sacrificed himself to win the heart of Christianity and America to save the Second Israel.
Sponsor others Representatives
Beloved brothers and sisters, there are many who need financial assistance to fulfill this direction. Please consider sponsoring others to go by supporting their transportation or helping with other costs. Working together the American family will give our True Parents the support needed from their Elder Son nation.
Sincerely in the Love of our True Parents,
Dr. Chang Shik Yang
Rev. Michael Jenkins
