May God's blessing and grace abound as we welcome Cheon Il Guk Year Three.
On February 6th True Parents held the following important providential ceremonies - the "Holy Marriage Blessing Ceremony of the Parents of Heaven and Earth Opening Cheon Il Guk," and the "Coronation of the King of the Blessed Families of the Peace and Unity of the Cosmic True Parent and the True Parents of Heaven and Earth."
Based on these ceremonies, the following special directions have been given.
Explanation of the Portrait of the King of the Blessed Families
Centered upon God's kingship of the original creation and based upon the spiritual and physical foundation of Cheon Il Guk, True Parents, as the ancestors of goodness, held their Holy Wedding. Upon that foundation, they fully settled God's sovereignty on the earth, holding the Coronation of the King of the Blessed Families and thus launching a new era.
In opening this new era, the True Parents have permitted all blessed families to receive the officially recognized World Level Blessing as the completion stage Blessing, surpassing that of the national level. True Parents, as the center that bears the responsibility and authority for the era at every developmental phase of the providence, have permitted us to receive the World Level Blessing as the owners of Cheon Il Guk.
However, all blessed families have not attained the standard to receive the Blessing. Therefore, in order to satisfy that standard and establish the appropriate qualifications, True Parents are bestowing, as a special grace, the Portrait of the King of the Blessed Families. This certificate of our dedication establishes the condition that we pledge to become owners of the new era, and reminds us of what we are to accomplish thereafter.
Meaning of the Portrait of the King of the Blessed Families
We are to inherit the True Parents' realm of victory. We are to accomplish total liberation by inheriting the "Name, Word and Result" of the Cosmic God and the True Parents of Heaven and Earth.
Distribution of the Portrait of the King of the Blessed Families
Headquarters will send out the poster-size Portraits of the King of the Blessed Families to the regional headquarters, who will distribute them to all families. Blessed families are asked to prepare two copies -- the poster size to be preserved for posterity by the family, and a letter-size version to be submitted to their regional headquarters. This serves as registration of each family's resolution to fulfill Cheon Il Guk ownership.
All blessed families are to create a resolution as follows:
Each couple should print their names and impress their fingerprints from all five fingers of their right hands to form a circle around the names. The husband's right-hand thumb and fingerprints form a semi-circle above his name, starting with his thumb, from left to right. Those of the wife's right hand form another semi-circle, from thumb to little finger, below her name (going the other way, upside down, from right to left).
The Portrait of the King of the Blessed Families is to be framed and either hung in the family prayer room or in a good position on a north-facing wall. This portrait should be bequeathed from generation to generation in each family.
As soon as possible each family should submit the smaller Portrait, containing the family's resolution, to regional headquarters, for eventual safekeeping at national headquarters.
