Cheon Seong Gyeong Rough Draft Version -
Book 2, Chapter 8. Three-subject Thought and the Declaration of the True Parents
Section 3. The Declaration of True Parents and Kingship
3.1. Adams family, the original starting point of the royal palace
God's will is that the original Adam reach perfection. Adam is the eldest son, the first son. He is the son who has received the first love. This is the right of the first son. Since Adam was able to inherit the first love he can become a parent centering on that first love.
After inheriting vertical love, He will form a couple that and is connected through horizontal love. This is where the words restoration of the right of parents comes from. Until now, throughout the historical ages, there has been no foundation upon which parents could appear. It has been a battle, the history of fighting between Cain and Abel. Human history has been knitted together through war. To put an end to this, brothers and sisters must become one.
When we come to realize it, those enemies are brothers and sisters. They used to be elder brothers and younger brothers. Who will teach them this? The parents will teach them. They did not know about the division of their ancestors. Who will teach them? The parents will. As the parents teach them, they will come into harmony. So they are to be children centered on the parents. Only when the children harmonize can the authority through which the right of parents can be exercised appear. This is the restoration of the right of parents.
When lost children are found, parents can regain their authority over their children. Next, the kingship has been lost. What is the ideal starting point of these parents? The royal palace is the starting point. As for Adam, he has to take the right of the first son, the right of parents, and the kingship and establish himself centering on God's love. This settling is the point of origin of the royal palace and the point of origin of parents.
Next is the point of origin of the right of the first son. The universe, by following this tradition, is supposed to fully adapt itself. When this is achieved, even the archangel will have to bow his head. The relationship between the communist world and the democratic world is a Cain - Abel relationship. Cain and Abel fought, didn't they?
The political and religious spheres are Cain and Abel in vertical terms. This vertical aspect is hit by the horizontal. So the foundation to restore the right of the first son was lost. The foundation to restore the right of the first son automatically includes the right of parents. Parents come into being on the base of the eldest son. When the right of parents is established, the kingship will grow.
Adams family is the starting point of the royal palace. When the royal family grows in number, there will be citizens. So when the tribe inherits the kingship centering on the right of the eldest son, and centering on that tribe, the tribes from the collateral blood lines will become citizens. This is a principle. Because of this, they are of the royal family.
You can return to the original standard of Adams family only when you have the consciousness of being a royal family of the heavenly nation. You are tribal messiahs. Tribal messiahs are parents, and also kings. They are to represent the right of the eldest son, and inherit the tribal kingship, right of tribal parents, and even the right of a tribal eldest son.
The formation-stage Adam and growth-stage Adam came to life through the completion-stage Adam. What does this mean? The right of the eldest son and tribal messiahship are in the form of a family that has been resurrected by Jesus. Moreover, before this is achieved, Jesus cannot resurrect the formation-stage Adam. Jesus himself cannot resurrect him. Because the perfected returning Lord has come grasping the victorious authority to complete the mission of Jesus in the global sphere, and as he has come holding the victorious supremacy before Satan; only the returning Lord can exercise the authority of Jesus and the authority of Adam in parallel.
So the returning Lord is the representative of the perfected Adam and perfected Jesus, who have triumphed on that foundation. To combine the formation and growth levels and perfect them is to become the third Adam. When we say the foundation for the completion of the third Adam, it includes Jesus and Adam. So centering on the foundation for the perfection of the third Adam, and on the basis of this victorious supremacy, he should firmly establish global messiahship.
3.2. The establishment of kingship
What we can think of on True Parents Day is that, first, the restoration of brotherhood is complete, and, second, that of the right of parents is complete. Next, as the third step, there remains the restoration of kingship. Now that I have restored the right of parents, I am sending tribal messiahs to put everything in order, just as God sent the returning Lord and just as He sent Jesus.
This is possible because the vertical standard has been established. Vertically, the three standards of Adams age, Jesus age, and the age of the Second Advent are established. Since they are established through my having fought and gained victory, they must all be extended from this point in the age of the Second Advent. What do you have to achieve through this?
You need to build your own family. A circle will arise. Through me, three were established in this way; they are the Adam parents, the Jesus parents, and the Second Advent parents. Therefore, I am sending you in the same way that God is sending the returning Lord, as if He were sending Adam again. It is to save the second Adam and first Adam that the third Adam came. Just as the third Adam came and restored the second Adam, you are to save your parents who are the first Adam.
Your mothers and fathers will rise to the position of Adam. Through this, the traditions of the sphere of religion will disappear. There will be no further need for religion. The entire world will enter the realm of the chosen people. What will this bring about? Horizontally, your birth parents will be tribal messiahs and those born into your lineage will be national messiahs. This is possible. This is horizontal.
Through this, everyone will stand in the position of being connected through one set of parents. This is also one set of parents. The third Adam is also one set of parents. Thus, the land of your birth, your hometown, will become the heavenly nation -- the kingdom of heaven. And your father and mother in your hometown will become your ancestors' true ancestors.
What is first? To stand on God's side. Next is for the family to stand on God's side. If that is achieved, the global foundation will all be connected to the Parents anyway. Where is the original hometown? Although the original hometown is where I was born, not every tribe can have Jeongju as their hometown. [The town of Rev. Moons birth, Jeongju, is in North Pyongan Province, now North Korea]
It has to be where you were born. Your hometowns are different; Satan was occupying them, but as heaven-centered parents are born in your hometown, that place is the Garden of Eden. This way, your descendants of goodness, who are born in the unfallen, original garden, will expand towards the world. It is along this vertical line that you will all be connected and tied to my clan.
You should love that which is vertical, more than you love your clan. Then, Satan will be unable to occupy it. The establishment of such things will make possible the restoration of kingship. Originally, when Adam reaches perfection, the Heavenly Father is perfected, and when Eve reaches perfection, the Heavenly Mother is perfected. Hence, if they become the owners of the family, the kingship of the family-level heavenly kingdom arises.
Thus, Adam and Eve were to become king and queen on the individual level, family level, tribal level, ethnic level, national level, and global level. Since we have reached the time when we can go beyond such a national level, we can step over the kingship of the satanic world and establish the kingship of the heavenly world. This day is March 27, 1990. Through this, the world will turn back with the wind I have whipped up.
3.3. The restoration of kingship
Why do we need the right of parents? We need it in order to restore kingship. To restore kingship, we should not be stuck in any of the four directions of east, west, south, and north. When the king comes into your home, you should always be able to serve him twenty-four hours, 365 days a year. You should be able to swing, through 360 degrees, a stick whose length is three times the span of your outstretched arms, without it catching on anything.
You should always be able to welcome him. There, the clan will follow. This is a blessed tribe of love. What love? True love. What is true love? It is the love that makes you invest yourself eternally and forget about it, and invest again. Why should we do this? There is a principle that we wish our partner in love to be better than we are, and our sons to be better than we are. It is in order to achieve this that even God has to invest more than Himself. Since there is no other way of investing more then oneself than investing and forgetting, we must go the way of true love, where we give and forget.
It is from there that the unification of the heaven and earth begins. After investing your life, you should not think, I died because of God and because of the Unification Church. We must sacrifice ourselves. You cannot say, I have done this much but the church does not recognize me, and I have followed the Unification Church for dozens of years, and yet Father does not recognize me.
As for me, although I have suffered for my whole life, God has not recognized me. But I do not think of it as God not recognizing me. Just like God, I try to be hit and then invest and invest again. As I invest to the end, it does not disappear but accumulates again and again, and I naturally go up to the mountain top. This is strange, isn't it? While investing myself again and again, I find myself on top of the mountain and top of the world; then, the right of the first son, the right of parents, and the kingship will be automatically restored. This is the concept that can coincide with the logic of re-creation. (206-268, 1990.10.14)
Now we have fully built the foundation to declare the True Parents. There is no one who can say, Rev. Moon is not the True Parent. Let Christian ministers try coming before me. Among our country's president and party heads, let those who can say, He is not! step forward. Let the president of the United States, or someone who rules a nation on this earth and speaks big words, come forward and put forth an argument that denies I am the True Parent. Even such people will be unable to move an inch when they listen to my words. (204-84, 1990.7.1)
I am not a fool. I am smarter than you. I am someone who has lived his life embracing under his wing and guiding the distinguished and notable people of the world. Even just our Professors World Peace Academy has a presence in 120 countries. Its membership includes many Nobel laureates. It is because we have such a foundation that we have established The World and I as a magazine of world renown, the champion among magazines in the world, within less than four years. I am a person with such a foundation. (204-84, 1990.7.1)
I have the title of True Parent. Then, what does Rev. Moon do? I am a person who likes God more than anyone else, and who knows God better than anyone else. Also, I am someone who clearly teaches you the path of eternal life. What is it that the True Parent is supposed to do? The True Parent, Rev. Moon, is the global and historical representative of humankind carrying the responsibility to liberate you from the realm of death and transfer you to the path of eternal life.
Since True Parents have true love, they are the ones who have the point of conclusion and the returning point where God's love and essence converge in unity. This is why false love is removed through true love. False love does not know how to invest even once. It just seeks to receive. But with true love, if you invest, you can resolve everything; then redemption is possible. This is possible only in true love. This is why you can come to know God through Rev. Moon. Next, the True Parent must teach true love. True love. That is my responsibility. (203-360, 1990.6.28)
Now, in the world, there is no one who can get rid of Rev. Moon. No one can match me in strength. Do you know what will happen when I create negative propaganda? This Republic of Korea will be in trouble. Do you know who handled the leftist students? At a time that was supposed to be the most chaotic since the founding of the Republic of Korea, I swept through the nation, bringing the content of the meeting with Gorbachev. This made them say, Oh, I cannot trust the government. I will have to trust Rev. Moon.
This way, I put them in the right direction. And what did I do on this basis? I declared True Parents. If we came as the True Parents, I had to declare the True Parents; otherwise, how would I raise my face before God in the spirit world? If we have really come with the mission of the True Parents, I must declare that we are the True Parents before the people and the world. Otherwise, how would I lift up my face and go on? Jesus could not declare himself the True Parent. That is the problem. If he had, Christianity would not have shed blood. Jesus could have indemnified ten times what they shed blood for. But since he was unable to make the declaration, Satan is in control until the global standard is revealed. I know that.
In North Korea, the false parent, Kim Il-sung, has appeared, having occupied the seat of the satanic true parents. This is plundering. It is all plundering. They brought Christianity to ruin. But now as I have declared True Parents, Kim Il-sung will go down. Through doing this, I am gaining hold of him. It is because such a time is approaching that I am planning to enter Pyongyang and hold a Pyongyang rally.
This is not something I will do myself. Does Adam fight with the archangel? Adam does not fight with the archangel. Since the archangel fell, I must give him directions. So, until now I have been giving directions to the Soviet Union, the worldwide archangel, and to China, the Asia-level archangel. Then, through Japan, in the position of Eve, by creating oneness between the archangel and Eve, I will bring Kim Il-sung to submission.
I am making these people one and then using this as a vehicle to move forward. So if I declare the Federation of World Peace there in this way, how good that would be! I will call Gorbachev, Jiang Zemin, the Japanese prime minister, President Bush, and so forth, to come. There is no one in Korea but me who says such things. Can the president do this? What will it take to do this? I have already built that kind of foundation. (204-178, 1990.7.8)
I am not a man that is fading away. I am not someone who lives in ignorance of what's behind any of the politicians in history. Although the leaders of the Christian churches do not know, I certainly know these things. Did the Unification Church and Rev. Moon, who were branded as historic representatives of extreme foolishness, perish? Can God perish? What kind of relationship do I, Rev. Moon, and God have? What do we mean by True Parent?
I have declared that I am the True Parent. If I were not the True Parent yet declared myself to be such, I would be stabbed by spirits from hell, and by good spirits when I went to the spirit world; so would I declare myself to be the True Parent without knowing such a dreadful outcome?
What is the True Parent? I have heard that at a doctrinal discussion between Won-Buddhism and the Unification Church, one organization leader asked, While Won-Buddhism talks about the Savior, the Unification Church talks about True Parents. The Savior can be forsaken after being believed in, but parents are a matter of absolute destiny, so how can they be forsaken? That's how it is.
Try forsaking them, and the entire universe, heaven and earth, and everything else will say, You wretch, you deserve to go to hell! The place of True Parents is a place of pride. Since the devil knows this, he attacked me from all four directions, mobilizing the whole world. Even the Communist party joined in this effort, and all the denominations and religions opposed me. Furthermore, even the mafia and terrorists joined their forces to expel me. They have shot at me with all kinds of tricks.
You call Rev. Moon the True Parent, but I don't like the words True Parents. Think about how fearsome these words are. Once we became True Parents, we had to bear true sons and daughters and raise true sons and daughters. This is the issue. After becoming True Parents, we have to head up a true family.
When a tribe arises from this, we must lead it as a true tribe; when this expands to one people, we must lead that people; if this expands into a nation, we must lead the nation; if this expands to the world, we must lead the world; and if this expands to all humankind that fills heaven and earth, the spiritual and physical worlds, we must have the ability to lead them. This is a huge undertaking. I am aware of all this. Then, why did I announce the term True Parents?
I did not want to announce it myself. But if the announcement were not made, the doctrine of the Unification Church would deviate. If the announcement were not made, the Unification Church doctrine would be a lie. Because I cannot make the truth a lie, it was inevitable that I do this; in order to make the truth reveal its true light, I had to act, even under tribulation and persecution, even if my body had to be torn apart, be stepped on, and receive all kinds of abuse. This is why I have become such a man. This is how the Rev. Moon of the Unification Church differs from the founders and leaders of the other religions.
