The Words of the Bickford Family
"...Many brothers and sisters comforted Grandfather's heart along this thorny path. Many were killed, many were lost. Do you think Grandfather, the God of night and the God of day, that persevered through 6000 years of biblical history, would ever forget even one second of service to Grandfather, given with a loyal and repenting heart? No!" During our "boot camp" (training of love), True Parents tenderly raised us minute by minute, with love, so once we tasted the sweetness of Their love, there was no escaping what Heaven had in store for us. What are we fighting for? Love! We have been taught over and over and over, the price we are paying is for love. We have been and are, learning about the world of Heart, God's Heart.
The God of night and the God of Day is teaching us that God is our Grandfather that loves and misses us dearly. He has persevered 6000 years to find us and to meet us. We are the fruition of thousands of ten thousand generations, so our Grandfather could meet us. True Parents have set up a way through Hoon Dok Hae, to attend our Parents and our Grandfather, with filial piety, each and every day for the rest of eternity.
With the Heavenly Tradition and standard of faith through service to others, we can touch our Grandfather's Heart and become one with His warmth and feel the beating of His pulse from within. This is the one thing He has been yearning for. To resonate at the same frequency, the same pitch with all mankind. Hear it?
The only way I can explain it is to listen to the sounds of summer. The frogs, insects, everything of nature adding to the symphony of sound you can hear as the accumulative sum of all their frequencies, vibrating at the same pitch. That pitch is the same day and night. A tuning fork of one frequency, once struck, will make other forks, of the same frequency, vibrate.
Likewise, our hearts and minds, hopes and dreams, wants and desires, resonating at the same pitch, we can cause others of the same frequency to vibrate as we are. When Heaven touches and changes our hearts through the teachings of the Divine Principle or better yet, OSDP, there is a transformation that takes place in each and every soul. That transformation, like a piano tuner, perfects each ones pitch causing like vibrating. That vibration unified transcends space and time, cosmically.
Grandfather must feel tickled as he starts to feel our hearts becoming aligned in oneness with His. Don't you think? From our True Parents, Grandfather was rescued from prison inside of human hearts, and for the first time in all of human history, Grandfather is smiling and singing and dancing around in circles.
True Father said what he has accomplished right now, is half of what he wanted to accomplish, by the time he turned 47 years old. How much more could have happened if, "Billy Graham" had fulfilled his role as "John the Baptist"? How much further would Father have been if the "Beatles", had fulfilled their responsibility to Heaven? The Lord of the Second Advent came and suffered as Jesus the Christ suffered.
Many brothers and sisters comforted Grandfather's heart along this thorny path. Many were killed, many were lost. Do you think Grandfather, the God of night and the God of day, that persevered through 6000 years of biblical history, would ever forget even one second of service to Grandfather, given with a loyal and repenting heart? No! Even if a brother or sister left MFT or CARP or Missionary work, Heaven will bow before such an individual that went the way of suffering, against their family and friends that persecuted them?
Now is the time for joyful hearts, receive Him completely with all that you have. You shall be healed, Heavenly strength shall fill your soul and deep boundless joy shall swell within you eternally.
Arirong, arario oh, we are crossing over the crest of the hill. Let us sing together with a new heart, we will see the dawning of the great new day! -- I love you and miss you brothers and sisters.
