III. Hong Soon Ae--Dae Mo Nim's Calling and Providential Mission: from the perspective of the foundation to receive the Messiah
1) Victory on the Foundation of Faith (before joining the church)
Dae Mo Nim was born on February 22, 1914 in Jung Joo to Hong Eu Il (father) and Cho Won Mo (mother) who were sincere Christians. She was married to Mr. Seung Woon Han in 1934 when she was 20, and gave birth to True Mother on January 6, 1943 in An Joo, Southern Pyung An province. Dae Mo Nim was practicing the Christian faith sincerely at the "New Jesus Church" which was led by Reverends Yong Do Lee 35 and Gook Joo Hwang. Dae Mo Nim walked 40 kilometers each day for 100 days from Gae Chun to Gang Gyeto spread the Gospel crying, "repent, the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand." Sometimes she street-preached from An Joo to Shin Eui Joo. 36 She also used to wail for the repentance of sin crying day and night. 37 Dae Mo Nim hesitated when her mother suggested that she join a new holy group in Chul San. However, ultimately guided by the Lord's voice, she joined "Sung Joo Gyo Dan" led by Mrs. Sung Do Kim and had practiced a sincere life of prayer for eight years. 38 According to True Father, Mrs. Sung Do Kim was a very sincere Christian who received directly from Heaven the revelation about the major content of the providence. 39 Especially, she received and taught 12 major contents including the liberation of Korea, the physical returning of the Messiah, the human fall, and so on. 40 Mrs. Sung Do Kim opposed "shin sa cham bae" and foretold the fall of Japan. As this was widely known, she was imprisoned and tortured severely. Soon after she got out of the prison, she passed away. Dae Mo Nim was the most earnest follower of Sung Do Kim's group and was thought to carry on her mission. 41 After her death, this faith was carried on by the Inside Belly Church led by Il Duk Lee and his wife Ho Bin Huh who were followers of Sung Do Kim. 42 It was called the Inside Belly Church because Jesus' direct message was revealed through Ho Bin Huh's belly. 43 From the viewpoint of the providence, Sung Do Kim had a mission of Eve, and Ho Bin Huh had a mission of Mary. 44 In that church, they practiced attending the returning Messiah thoroughly. Particularly, they prepared the returning Messiah's clothes that he could wear from his infancy to the age of 33 with a change every third day. Also, to offer to the Lord, They prepared good meal suitable for a big party three times a day and bowed 300 times or sometimes 3000 times before offering the table. 45 The life of faith in that church was primarily characterized by the bow rather than by speech or sermon. 46
Dae Mo Nim used to take on the job of specially ordering shoes and hats for the returning Messiah and his spouse. 47 When Ho Bin Huh was imprisoned with True Father in 1946 she failed her mission of testifying to him. 48 Dae Mo Nim left for South Korea in 1948 49 and continued her devoted life of faith with True Mother in Seoul, Tague, and Jejoo and so on until she met Father in 1955. While she was living in Choonchun, she joined the church led by the elder Suk Chun Chung, son of Sung Do Kim and met Father in December 1955. By maintaining the center of her religious thought despite that she went through several different religious groups, Dae Mo Nim was able to inherit the main current of history of preparation for the coming Messiah and to set the foundation for True Mother to meet with True Father. 50 It is stated that Father said, "Han Hak Ja was borne in Korea" three times when Dae Mo Nim and little Mother were greeting (bowing) Father. 51 This is how the first meeting between Father and Mother took place.
As mentioned above, God's providence of sending one Messiah was carried out with elaborate plan through holy groups in central religion. Preparation to receive the returning Messiah was carried out by several holy movements initiated by 3 people from Wonsan area, a mountainous eastern part of Korea representing Adam and by 3 people from Chulsan area, an open western part of Korea representing Eve. 52 Guided by Heaven, Dae Mo Nim established the foundation of faith by her bloody devotion to meet Messiah and passing through major holy religious groups.
2) Victory on the Foundation of Substance (after joining the Church)
After joining the church, Dae Mo Nim set up 5 personal guiding principles in order to perfect her effort to serve God and True Parents vertically and to love other church members. 53 Foundation of Faith is to establish the vertical relationship with God based on absolute faith. On the basis of accomplishing this, one completes the perfect substance by becoming the embodiment true love and of truth through setting indemnity conditions to eradicate the fallen characteristics in horizontal Cain - Abel relationship. Dae Mo Nim attended several groups with mission to establish the spiritual foundation to receive the Messiah such as New Lord Church centering on Rev. Yong Do Lee and Ho Bin Lee, Sung Joo sect by Sung Do Kim, and Inside Belly Church by Ho Bin Huh. She inherited in Abel's position the mission of these providential central figures by going the way of devotion and attendance with humbleness, patience, and sacrifice from the position of a servant. While other providential figures were failing their mission, Dae Mo Nim paid her wholehearted devotion in meeting the returning Messiah and inherited the core of faith. On this foundation, she was able to meet True Father spiritually in 1948. 54 She heard Father in her dream telling her to keep doing her devotion till he would come back in three years from North Korea. She kept her faith stronger by hanging on to these words.
30 days after Dae Mo Nim's seung hwa, True Mother said in her testimony about Dae Mo Nim to True Children that Dae Mo Nim prayed with the utmost sincerity and sacrifice that only God knows the intensity. 55 Furthermore, in worrying about members' failure to live according to the Divine Principle, Dae Mo Nim prayed that members could live a life of good faith even if it required her sacrifice. Her prayer and love toward brothers and sisters on the earth continued in the spiritual world as well and became the heartistic foundation for her returning resurrection and the reeducating of family members. Dae Mo Nim's victory of inheriting the faith of successive providential figures while attending different holy groups is the path of completed faith to separate Satan and her absolute faith toward Heaven. This formed the foundation of faith and the foundation of substance to receiving the Messiah.
3) Victory on the Heartistic Foundation to Receive the Messiah (After Holy Wedding of True Parents)
Dae Mo Nim traversed from Seoul, Daegu, Jejoo Island, and Choonchun looking for the returning Messiah whose face she remembered from her dream in 1948. While she was making an earnest effort at searching for the returning Messiah, she was led to True Father at Chungpadong in December, 1955 by the elder, Suk Chun Chung, son of Rev. Sung Do Kim. It was a deeply moving meeting for Dae Mo Nim taking place 7 years after the dream. What is the most fundamental for the life of faith of the followers of the True should be the example of the life of attendance. Dae Mo Nim already established the heartistic foundation of attendance. This was due to her time with the Inside Belly Church. There the bowing life of attending Heaven with the utmost sincerity was more important than anything else including general service. When she felt like praying Dae Mo Nim bowed instead. 56 In her daily life, the first thing she did after getting up was to look at heaven with pure and earnest heart. When she came home, she first set the place for True Parents, and she even hung her clothes after setting aside a place for True Parents' clothes. She respected the heavenly law of attendance so much that she always behaved and even slept carefully. 57
Father mentioned that the reasons that he gave the name of Dae Mo is that she broke down all the walls and barriers with sacrifice and that she accomplished her responsibilities in times of change. Also, he gave her a writing of "Choong Shim Bong Shin" by saying that she lived a path of offering with loyal changeless heart. 58 He also said that Dae Mo Nim lived a life of absolute faith and absolute obedience to God even sacrificing her body to connect the way of heavenly affection while ignoring affection found in the human world. 59 Father's opinion of Dae Mo Nim's faith was that it was higher than any other church members', and it indicates that the realm of Dae Mo Nim's faith is beyond our imagination. We can also find Father's high option of her sincere effort in the contents of his brief cards he sent during 1978 World Tour. 60
Moreover, she liked True Mother's saying that "God works through a person who can see the beauty of a flower and think and act on a world level at the same time" and did her duty of attendance. The time between 1979, when she came back to Korea from U.S. and 1989, the year of her seung hwa, was a long period of medical treatment and, at the same time, of 24 hour a day prayer for True Family while withdrawing from all relations with the secular world. She set the pattern of attending True Parents with loyal heart and sacrificial dedication. Heaven's recognition of her attendance serves as a good example to us.
Dae Mo Nim did not forget her mission as a nurse to True Mother that was given to her when she was pregnant and raised her with the utmost sincerity. For 3 years after True Parents' Holy Wedding, Dae Mo Nim did her duty of attendance by thoroughly keeping principled relationship. She went beyond the level of human affection as a physical mother. She was even extra careful in entering the headquarters church. Dae Mo Nim succeeded in overcoming failures of Mary, Jesus' mother to do her mission and of Elizabeth of not preparing the sister of John the Baptist as Jesus' wife. 61 Dae Mo Nim lived a life of more gratitude, attendance, and sacrifice as a person who was to meet the Lord, coming as the only begotten son, then anyone then discarded the glorious position (recognition as part of Messiah's family) after True Parents' Holy Wedding. By doing so, Dae Mo Nim succeeded in setting the heartistic foundation of attending the Messiah by receiving True Parents' recognition.
IV. Mission and work of Heung Jin Nim, Choong Mo Nim and Dae Mo Nim in the spiritual world
1) The Commissioning of Heung Jin Nim by True Parents
Heung Jin Nim, borne as a second son in True Family, went to the spirit world in the position of being one with the direct dominion on the foundation of indemnifying the Satanic sovereignty of indirect dominion. Thus, he established the position of the eldest son as a restored eldest son and perfected Abel by entering the sprit world with qualification of being perfect for the first time after the fall. 62 Moreover, Heung Jin Nim, in the position of Abel King, was sent as a True Parents' ambassador plenipotentiary and came to open the door of the spiritual world as the Messiah of love. One important reason that Heung Jin Nim could do all these in the spiritual world was the `Tong Il ceremony' that True Parents performed on Dec. 23, 1983 while Heung Jin Nim was still alive in this world. The Tong Il ceremony was to offer Heung Jin Nim to Heaven and to build a bridge between the earthly world and the Heavenly world. This was accomplished by connecting the spiritual world domain of father- son relation centered on the physical reality of father-son relation with Heung Jin Nim being in a position of oneness with Father. 63 Also, through blessing with Hun Sook Nim 50 days after seung hwa, he could traverse freely between the earthly world and the spiritual world through bridge of love by restoring the realm of Abel Kingship in the spiritual world. 64 As a result, "Ae Seung Il" was declared to commemorate the day that God's love overcame the realm of death. 65
Now, Heung Jin Nim, in the position of king of king, is working as a representative of True Parents commanding the spiritual world. 66 Since then, Heung Jin Nim, as a new Messiah, tends to appear with Jesus in many places. 67 His work is to teach the Heavenly law in the spiritual world and to educate spirits based on the Divine Principle going back and forth between the earthly world and the spiritual world. 68 Especially since the beginning of the work in Chung Pyung, he is leading the 100-day training and blessing, on behalf of True Parents along with Dae Mo Nim, in the spiritual world of the spirits who are liberated by Dae Mo Nim. 69 Dae Mo Nim is also displaying matchless etiquette in attending Heung Jin Nim in the spiritual world. Since life in the spiritual world reflects the experiences in the earthly world, Dae Mo Nim knows more about certain things. However, even regarding these matters, she always makes decisions only after asking Heung Jin Nim first. 70
2) The Commissioning of Dae Mo Nim and Choong Mo Nim by True Parents
True Parents assigned a mission to Dae Mo Nim in the spiritual world at Returning (Gui Hwan) ceremony on Nov. 6 1989, 4 days after her seung hwa and at Won Jun ceremony the next day at Paju won jon. Her mission can be divided into 4 categories. 71 First is to work as a heartistic bridge between the earth and the heaven. Second, she is to unite Judaism and Unification Church centering on Christianity by solidifying the relation between Jesus and Heung Jin Nim. Third is to unite the blessed families of the church centering on Heung Jin Nim and the president 72 who went to the spirit world before her. Finally is the mission of intermediary between heaven and hell. True Parents prayed that assignment of the above mission to Dae Mo Nim be accepted.
Being assigned the special mission as illustrated above, Dae Mo Nim descended on the earth substantially through her much devotion. With angels' aid, she has been guiding members to separate from evil spirits and to cleanse themselves of their personal sin through repentance, resurrection, and rebirth movement. Since June 6, 1995, she has settled at Shin Moon Ro official residence 73 where she stayed till her seung hwa. There she is leading the work of Chung Pyung and traversing between heaven and earth. According to Father's words, Dae Mo Nim, in the position of True Mother's mother, separates the bodies invaded by the devil through the help of angels just like Jesus' work through holy spirits. 74 Furthermore, Dae Mo Nim centering on Heung Jin Nim is leading the blessing in the spiritual world with the full authority given to her at the Declaration Ceremony of Opening of the Blessing in the Spiritual World (Young Gye Gae Moon Sunpo Shik) on December 1, 1997.
3) The Relationship among Choong Mo Nim, Dae Mo Nim, and True Mother: as expressed in Father's speeches
As explained above, on Nov. 16, 1996, in Uruguay, True Parents assigned a special mission to Choong Mo Nim. They also prayed that she would be one with Mother along with Dae Mo Nim and guide children to be connected with Christianity. Father also explained that Choong Mo Nim is in Adam's form as the embodiment of resurrected Eve, Dae Mo Nim is in Jesus' form as the embodiment of resurrected Holy Spirit (Sung Ryoung), and True Mother in Returning Messiah's form as a substance of resurrection. He gave them missions as follow:
First, Choong Mo Nim, as a physical mother of the Returning Messiah, has a mission of making devotion in the spiritual world for advancement of Chung Pyung providence. She also should work to pave the way for True Parents on earth but should not perform any concrete returning work.
Second, Dae Mo Nim should unite Christianity centering on Chung Pyung. Moreover, she should undertake a rebirth movement as a work of love, forgiveness, and repentance by inviting whole humanity as well as family members to participate in the work in Chung Pyung.
Third, Heung Jin Nim 75 should teach the heavenly law and to educate the spirits centering on the Principle by traversing both heaven and earth. Those spirits liberated in Chung Pyung through Dae Mo Nim's work should receive blessing after participating in 100 day workshop led by Heung Jin Nim and should help their descendents by returning as absolute good spirits.
Furthermore, Father spoke that all spiritual mediators should receive prayer in Chung Pyung and go back as normal general members.
V. Relationship between Dae Mo Nim and Mrs. Hyo Nam Kim, as her physical returning counterpart - based on the heartistic foundation for Holy Spirit's mission
Dae Mo Nim was commissioned to work as a bridge between heaven and earth by True Parents' prayer. She returned to the earth by subjugating Lucifer through restless hard work from 1989 to 1991. Since she needed a prepared physical body to return to this world, she chose Mrs. Hyo Nam Kim for that purpose. Dae Mo Nim is doing a work of rebirth 76 as Holy Spirit (Sung Shin) centering on Chung Pyung holy ground by borrowing the body of Mrs. Kim and commanding angels. This is to help blessed family members to be born again in front of True Parents through repentance, separation from the evil spirit, and ancestor liberation. On this work, True Father said that, like Jesus' work through Holy Ghost in 2000 years ago, Mother's mother is doing the work of rebirth in Mother's position. 77 Also, Chung Pyung work is as if Dae Mo Nim was reborn as a spiritual mother and is doing the work. 78
Accordingly, work in Chung Pyung being done currently is fundamentally different from the spiritual phenomenon that has occurred in the past in the church. That is, Dae Mo Nim in spirit world, as a representative of True Mother, is carrying out her mission that current dispensation demands through Mrs. Hyo Nam Kim's body on earth. To enhance understanding based on Divine Principle, I would like to investigate further Dae Mo Nim's work through Mrs. Hyo Nam Kim. 79
1) The Foundation of Faith
For Mrs. Hyo Nam Kim to be Dae Mo Nim's substantial body in her return work, Mrs. Kim also needed the foundation of faith and substance to receive the Messiah as a preparation to receive Holy Spirit (sung shin). On May 31, 1997, at 200th Chung Pyung special workshop, Dae Mo Nim directed Mrs. Kim to deliver her personal testimony. As a result, we know more or less in detail how she came to do Dae Mo Nim's work. 80 First of all, I had to rely on her testimony and then-current leaders' description for her character and righteous life process that is required to be chosen as a central figure. She already received the calling to do this work from her birth 81, and she vowed to devote her life to heaven when she was in the 5th grade as she cured her dying mother with her sincere heart. While a student, she attended the Presbyterian Church. Later, she joined Chul Li Gyo and dedicated her life for 5 years as the youngest teacher after 21-day workshop. 82 While she was serving as a leader in Chul Li Gyo, she was known as a healing teacher although she was young. 83 This can be considered a preparation of the formation stage for the healing aspect of Dae Mo Nim's work. It is also known by the testimony of the church leader at that time that she did sanctuary cleaning and candle prayer vigil every night while she was mobilized to Najoo in Southern Chullah province after the 1800 blessing.
After receiving blessing, her sincere effort and family life to accomplish true family helped her to pass the first - "Did you accomplish true family" - of 21 questions from True Mother she had to answer. This showed that she did her duty in her family as a daughter, a wife, and a mother. The Christian faith from her mother and her faith of devotion and service in Chul Li Gyo became a base of faith for her later mission. Also the fulfillment of her mission to prepare for next 10 years as a prayer lady which True Mother assigned to her in 1979 enabled her to establish the foundation of faith for Dae Mo Nim's work.
2) The Foundation of Substance
According to lecturer, Jae Soon Choi, who teaches "Age of Complete Testament and Dae Mo Nim's work," Mrs. Kim's life from 1979, when she was chosen as Dae Mo Nim's returning embodiment on earth, to 1989 is considered as time identity of Dae Mo Nim's life before seung hwa. This period was for setting indemnity condition for Mrs. Kim to overcome fallen nature. As she succeeded in this, she established the foundation of Abel's victory to attain the right of inheritance.
(1) Dae Mo Nim, from 1979 when she came back to Korea from U.S. to 1989 before her seung hwa, solely focused on prayer life disconnected from the worldly things. This was a period of illness, externally speaking, however, from internal perspective, it was a time of devotion for True Family and blessed families. At this time, she asked God concerned about lives of blessed families with many problems. In this process, Dae Mo Nim found out that evil spirits were influencing them and they had many fallen characteristics due to personal sins. To work more freely spiritually, she asked and received permission from God and True Parents to go to the spiritual world 3 - 4 year faster. 84 In 1979, Mrs. Kim also was visited by True Mother and Hyo Jin Nim who showed her an empty church and asked her to pray especially for filling the church. In 1983, True Mother appeared again and urged her to do her mission. In 1986, she went the path of self- sacrificing penance participating in Dae Mo Nim's suffering. 85 In 1992, by receiving a telescope and a ring from True Mother as tools for later work, she accomplished the spiritual foundation.
(2) Second is the process of becoming one as she inherits Dae Mo Nim's faith. Dae Mo Nim seung hwa on Nov. 3, 1989 and was enshrined on Nov. 7 at Paju won jon under True Parents' benediction. True Parents effectively led the whole series of seung hwa ceremony - the benediction of assigning a special mission on Nov. 6, Chung Shim Bong Chun writing and the benediction at Gui Hwan ceremony and Won Jon ceremony on Nov. 7. This was True Parents' deep love for the victorious Dae Mo Nim. For 3 years from 1989 to 1991 after the seung hwa, she learned heavenly law and made preparations for the returning work. During the same period, Mrs. Kim was making an earnest effort at certain hours. She was selected as the substantial central figure on earth by achieving victory on the severe spiritual challenge of inheriting Dae Mo Nim's faith. She made all kinds of effort in the process of finding the five trees and the water of life that symbolize love, heart, all things, loyalty, blessing, and truth. 86 Contents of the victory that Mrs. Kim achieved, united with Dae Mo Nim, can be condensed into three aspects. First is a 40-day and night vigil, 87 the second is 10,000 full bows, 88 and the third was cold bath. 89 The thing that motivated her to overcome these severe tests was her strong sense of mission to do something concerning the terrible unprincipled life situation that many blessed family members were in. this was shown her by Dae Mo Nim from the spiritual world.
3) As a counterpart in Dae Mo Nim's work, Mrs. Kim had to realize on her own all the situations in the spiritual world that Dae Mo Nim has learned from 1989 to 1991 since her seung hwa. Dae Mo Nim clearly gave her own responsibility by telling her to find the historic secrets by her own wisdom. 90 Particularly, she set the foundation of substance for her later mission by accomplishing on earth the reestablishing the providential central figures in history. This includes the subjugation of Lucifer and restoring the mission of Adam's family members. Based on this victory, Mrs. Kim was told by God that the period of her mission continues until March 13, 2013. 91
3) Foundation of Heart to Receive the Messiah (foundation for Holy Spirit's mission)
In order for Dae Mo Nim to do Holy Spirit work on earth through Mrs. Hyo Nam Kim, she (Dae Mo Nim) should receive God's acknowledgement on her victory on earth and spiritual world. She also needs to establish the victorious returning condition by being one with Mrs. Kim on earth. Mrs. Kim's personal responsibility for this was to set the heartistic foundation on the basis of subjugating Satan thus becoming qualified as an earthly substantial body and an agent of substantial Holy Spirit work. As we know from the Divine Principle, many restrictions follow the returning resurrection of spirit persons. The work of resurrection cannot be done even if the spirit has a strong will unless the earthly counterpart establishes the reciprocal foundation. From this viewpoint, the victory in the process of inheriting faith achieved by Dae Mo Nim in the spiritual world and Mrs. Kim on earth as a team is more valuable than that achieved by Abraham and Isaac. The heart of True Mother 92 encouraged them knowing this will only be known by God, True Father, and the victorious two parties.
From 1992 to 1994 was a period for Mrs. Kim to make an earnest effort by becoming one in heart with Dae Mo Nim for the actual Dae Mo Nim's work. Based on the foundation of devotion in finding the five trees and the water of life to restore things lost in Eden by the fall, Mrs. Kim went through a process of restoring the providential central figures such as Adam, Noah, Abraham, and Moses winning God's forgiveness. Adam and Eve, being the source of the fall, could not face God directly. Hence, it was to guide them from the position of restored True Mother toward God and to receive God's forgiveness that Dae Mo Nim and Mrs. Kim worked. Especially, the process of restoring Lucifer was serious and makes a very impressive story. To subjugate Lucifer, Mrs. Kim made tremendous effort. The process of restoring Lucifer, who refused to face God, took wise persuasion with the heart of a mother and a sister. Lucifer repented in the end and submitted to God who showed true love by crying without any accusation when he returned to the vacant position beside Adam and Eve left empty for so long. 93 On this foundation of subjugating Lucifer, the work of Chung Pyung to eradicate the evil spirits by mobilizing the angelic world became possible.
Lastly, Mrs. Kim went through True Mother's spiritual test to do Holy Spirit's work with Dae Mo Nim. After 10 years, she was to make the final confirmation of earthly substantial embodiment by means of 21 questions. It was not a matter of answering simple questions but a matter of confirming whether Mrs. Kim lived appropriately. 94 After this, she received her mission by receiving a telescope and a jade ring. A telescope symbolizes an eye to see the spiritual world to check the evil spirits, and a jade ring symbolizes the power to heal illness of blessed families. In fact, hearing this entire story from Mrs. Kim's testimony, True Parents signed on the five trees and water of life on Jan. 6, 1996. As such, Mrs. Kim received True Parents' public acknowledgement. 95
