Chapter 3 - The History of the Providence of Restoration and Changes in Humankindís View of God

4) The Completed Testament Age is the Age of the Oneness of God and Humankind

1. True children should go through the change of blood lineage and rebirth

On the path of restoration, we should rise from the age of the servant of servants, through the age of the servant, to the age of the adopted child and the age of direct lineage. Then, can we completely go through the age of the servant of servants, the age of the servant, and the age of the adopted child and be connected with the age of direct lineage? Connecting with the age of direct lineage cannot be done just like that. We necessarily have to go through the foundation of faith and foundation of substance according to the Principle in order to welcome the Messiah. The Messiah is the true son of God. The lineage of an adopted son and that of a true son are different. This is why we need a change of blood lineage. (55-192, 1972.5.9)

Since the Fall was an invalid marriage in the Garden of Eden, this is now being rectified as the True Parents marry people in the right way. True Parents are clearing away the bad things committed by the false parents, thereby abolishing hell and giving the marriage blessing to even the hundreds of billions of ancestors in the spirit world. Through the foundation of the families of the earthly descendants centered on true love, the ancestors in the spirit world and descendants on earth vertically unite as one. Furthermore, based on such a family foundation the East and the West are connected to each other.

Since humankind has received satanic blood, people cannot return to God on their own. So the Messiah has to restore the blood lineage absolutely, renewing the blood line that had been defiled by Satan. This transition must be made. This is why the Messiah must surely come. Without his coming, there will be no restoration of blood lineage. We must restore the blood lineage. (172-053, 1988.1.7)

What do True Parents have to do? They must rectify the wrong blood lineage that forms the root of the satanic world, turn around life that has deviated, and correctly reopen the path of love that had gone the wrong way. The Bible says that those who seek to die will live, and those seek to live will die. Why is this paradox necessary? It is because the satanic world must die. (169-037, 1987.10.4)

The ideal of loving oneness between God and humankind is where they unite in a loving relationship based on the true and great love that God desired as His ideal at the time of creation. If God had fulfilled that ideal, today we would all enter the Kingdom of Heaven just as we are, without having to worry about heaven or hell. (275-054, 1995.10.31)

There were three ages in history, the Old Testament Age, the New Testament Age, and the Completed Testament Age. Among these, what kind of age was the Old Testament Age? It was an age of the redemption of the children through sacrificial offerings. It was a time of preparation for the coming of Godís son. In the New Testament Age, Jesus became the offering for us to receive the parents. This is why in the age of the Second Coming we have been preparing to receive the parents by establishing the bride and bridegroom. The reason why I, having the name of the True Parent, have been suffering for forty years as the center of the Completed Testament Age, is to receive God on earth. This will lead to the oneness of God and humankind in love. (227-094, 1992.2.10)

The original relationship between God and mankind is of parent and child. In the New Testament Age, human beings were Godís adopted children. But now, since it is a parent-child relationship, what the son does is what the Father does, and what the Father does is what the son does. They are acting together. What belongs to the Father belongs to the son, and what belongs to the son belongs to the Father. The reason the Unification Church is fearsome is that it teaches this destined parent-child relationship. (31-324, 1970.6.7)

In the Old Testament Age, they sacrificed material things to pave the road for the coming of the true son. Jesus came as the son and sacrificed himself, and this was to pave the road for the coming of the parents. The parents come on this level surface and walk a suffering road in order to show God in. To what place does He come? To the original, vertical place. Since heaven and earthís great path was cut off here at its starting point, there will be no beginning point of peace as long as this fundamental root is not rectified. This is absolute. (200-55, 1990.2.23)

You should not think of Rev. Moon as being the same as you. What is Rev. Moonís mission? The Old Testament Age is an age when things of creation were sacrificed to find the sons and daughters. In the New Testament Age, the sons and daughters were sacrificed to pave the road for the coming of the parents. What are the parents to do on this earth after they come? They are to pave the way for God to come. The mission of True Parents is to build the horizontal realm of the vertical Father by going beyond the realm of all people. So when the horizontal fatherís realm of heart unfolds, the vertical fatherís realm of heart will naturally come about and settle here. When God reaches the point where He can embrace both vertical and horizontal love, He will finally cross over to the age when He can go beyond the world into the central position and reorganize the original ideal authority, saying, "Everything is done." (177-345, 1988.5.22)

The methods for fallen people to go back to God have differed according to the age. In the Old Testament Age, people could go to God by offering sacrifices; in the New Testament Age it was by believing in Jesus, the son of God; and in the Completed Testament Age people can go to God by attending the True Parents. (20-340, 1968.7.20)

In the future, you will not be able to marry your sons and daughters with people of the same nationality. God is looking at three generations. Now, you are as you are, but God wants to bring you into unity after three generations. One of these is the Old Testament Age. So your marriage is the Old Testament Age. Next comes the New Testament Age and the Completed Testament Age. The tradition will be established by the third generation that will be born through the marriages of the second generation, your sons and daughters. (146-275, 1986.7.20)

In the Completed Testament Age, True Parents sacrifice in order to bring the vertical God to earth. This is the final task. In front of humankind, God is the vertical Father centering on true love. True Parents are the horizontal parents who are horizontally aligned at 90 degrees with the vertical Father centering on true love. Therefore, on the basis of this vertical and horizontal love, Godís love and life finally erupt. As the joint virtues of God and man erupt, a new tribe will expand based on the true love of True Parents. In this way, finally in human history, the seed of life that began in God's love based on the original Principle standard will appear on earth. (208-339, 1990.11.21)

Now we must restore the rights of ownership. Since the things of creation were sacrificed in the Old Testament Age, the son was sacrificed in the New Testament Age, and the parents were sacrificed in the Completed Testament Age in order to bring God to us, what has to be done now? You should stand in the position representing the mother and father. The sons and daughters are the New Testament Age, and all things of creation the Old Testament Age. These Old Testament, New Testament and Completed Testament Ages have all deviated from Godís true love, and Satan has become the owner. Now, however, we must indemnify all this and bring it to the original owner. (208-345, 1990.11.21)

The Completed Testament Age is the age of accomplishment. We will accomplish as individuals, families, tribes, peoples, nations, and on the worldwide level. These are linked through God's love, Godís life, and Godís lineage. This is a tradition of one lineage, one love and one life. When this happens, Satan will have to leave. The work of engrafting will remove the connection with the satanic lineage. (226-275, 1992.2.9)
