Book 2, Chapter 8. Three-subject Thought and the Declaration of the True Parents
Section 4. Having a Photo of True Parents
4.1. The reason for having a photo of True Parents
Now, you should go back to your hometown and restore your family and relatives. You must have held revivals in your hometown. Just as you held revivals, you should all work at the district level. Now if you want to be a tribal messiah, you should hang up my photo. The pictures should not be just given away for nothing. Frame a few hundred photos and distribute them, saying they are good pictures, and receive the householders permission. With those who have received a picture and given permission, go into their homes and find the best spot in the room to hang it. Then, spiritually you will be an elder brother to the house owner.
Vertically, you take the father's position, and horizontally, the elder brother's position. So in the position of the vertical father and in the position of the horizontal elder brother, you are instructing the house owner, saying, This should be hung here! This way, those who give out the pictures will be tribal messiahs. You should try to hang up pictures quickly in at least 120 families. Try to put up 120 or more. Placing pictures in those houses can be counted as a local level breakthrough. That is setting the condition. Through this their ancestors in the spirit world will come every morning early and offer a bow. Turn on the light after one o'clock, two o'clock, or three o'clock.
When your ancestors come, and after they have offered their bow, then after another two hours, at five o'clock, you offer a bow. The spirits in the spirit world have not been able to attend True Parents. The one who has gone to the spirit world is the elder brother and the one here is the younger brother. Since the younger brother has the elder son's birthright, that is, since the positions are reversed, the one in the spirit world comes down and offers a bow. Their bow means that they will help their descendants to prosper.
This is just like what God gives. From God's position, these ancestors will support the process of bringing blessing to their descendants. I am saying that effort must be invested. When the spirit world comes to help, would you like it to be your beloved relatives that come and help or would you rather it be an old man from a neighboring village? When an old man comes down and helps, you must give out a portion of what you receive. Thus, now is the time when we should run all night lest someone should come and infringe on you. When you explain this, everyone will want to buy.
The reason I have survived through the treacherous chaos of history is that God protected me! In this world I would have been destroyed without any trace, yet I survived because God protected me! Because God loves Rev. Moon most dearly of all in human history, he has achieved the greatest things under the most trying hardships! This makes logical sense.
They will not doubt that if they honor the photograph in place of True Parents, their family will be protected. If you explain it, they will have no doubts. I have heard that sometimes there have been people who bought pictures even without such an explanation. When asked why they wanted to buy the pictures, they said, My mind keeps telling me to. I feel that the pictures will expel all the bad fortune and bring good things. So they bought large pictures. Such a time has come.
Young people are now carrying my pictures. I heard that a while ago, a photographer who came from the Soviet Union said that he was carrying a secret treasure in his pocket. When asked what it was, he took out a picture of me from a paper pouch. When asked why he was carrying it, he said that it made him feel peaceful. That is the way it is. Wearing a cross means being a Christian. Carrying True Parents picture signifies being a son and daughter of True Parents. First it is symbolic, then image, then substance.
They will be protected because they enter the formation-stage realm of formation, growth, and completion. For this, the tribal messiah should prepare pictures for them. To break through on the local level means to have people put up True Parents picture. If they only put up True Parents picture, they will surely attend workshops. When they attend a workshop and become inspired, you can tell them, You cannot buy this even with a huge sum of money, so please offer money according to how much you think it is worth! You can use the money to cover the cost of your local activities. Give the photos out to all those who have been to America for education. (212-108, 1991.1.2)
4.2 The power of the picture of True Parents
Until now has been the time when Abel had to sacrifice for Cain for the sake of the restoration of the right of the eldest son, and because of this the spirit world has been using the earthly world. But on the 31st Children's Day, the positions of the spiritual world and physical world are being completely reversed. Now that the right of the eldest son has been restored, Adam becomes the center and the eldest son. So the archangel has to listen to Adam and attend him. In the past, people opposed Rev. Moon and thought of him as someone who must die, but now they are maintaining the standard of respecting me. Thus, even if the devil comes and tells them to cooperate with him, they cannot do so. The devil cannot drag them to his side. They should introduce Rev. Moon and guide people.
This is why we must seek to establish a family. It is in the family that the turnaround occurs. The Fall occurred in the family. This is why I began the global indemnity effort as an individual, and, based on my family and tribe, won the Cain-Abel victory on the global level, returning with the right of the eldest son. Where is all the value of this victory to be established? Adam is the center of all value. The loss of Adam led to the loss of God's family, God's society, God's nation, God's world, God's cosmos, and even God's love.
After indemnifying all this, we now return to the family. All families are to stand on the family standard that is based on the equality of all people. When we return centering on this family, who is it that they return centered on? They are all following me as the center. Here, the devil cannot follow. While the devil defiled the blood, our side purified the blood of the fallen world. This is why the blessed families enter here.
Once the right of the eldest son of a family in the heavenly nation is achieved, the realm of the second son of the family in the heavenly nation is infinite. This is something you can control at will, according to the providence. We are now seeking out and entering those families. This is why we blessed families should be the base. For this, we have to use up all our living expenses and everything in our savings account.
This way we must offer everything for the sake of the nation. Through doing this we replace it with the universe. This is the raw material of heaven. Seizing the day requires an expensive piece of raw material. You should become such raw material. So you go to each family and make them secure. By killing the lambs and smearing their blood on their door-posts, the Israelites could avoid being struck. In the same way, just having my picture will prevent Satan from invading. The ancestors will come in the early morning to greet you, and the spirits will take care of the house. They will govern your mind completely. The time has come when such things will be possible.
We have to do three kinds of campaign from now on. First, the submission of membership forms; next, the hanging up of pictures of True Parents; then the raising of the church flag. We have to do all these three. When we do these three things, we can do anything. The flag represents the Unification Church, and the portrait photograph represents True Parents. Next, the membership form means registration.
A nation in which we can register will appear. From there, a beginning will be made. To attend True Parents means that your home has become one with True Parents. Then, what does the flag mean? It is a representative item in ones surroundings signifying the global members of the Unification Church. It is a representative signifying relationships. The flag represents you as an individual, but it also represents the husband and wife. It represents our families, but it also represents our tribes and our nations. It represents the entire Unification Church and all humankind.
You really must raise the flag. When you put up the flag, the same situation will occur as at the time when the Israelites were in the process of their exodus from Egypt, when the eldest sons were killed. Their sons avoided death and survived by their putting lambs blood on their doors. It is just like that.
When, at the time of Moses, the Israelites were bitten by snakes and dying, those who looked at the bronze serpent lived, didn't they? Likewise, when the satanic world was going to ruin, those who believed in Jesus lived. On this earth, in order to take back all the authority Satan has, you just have to raise the flag, hang up a picture of True Parents and register. This will already change your affiliation.
Thus, what I am especially emphasizing is the movement to hang up True Parents pictures and raise the flag. It has been already three years. I started it because I knew that such a time would come. This is why I am asking you to have people fill out membership application forms. Also, when you receive the membership forms, you should greet those people, saying, Please do well. Satan will not receive salvation unless he submits to Adam. The next step is to attend the Parents.
Until now you have not been able to attend True Parents, but you should attend them. You should put True Parents pictures in the best place, better than the pictures of your mother, father, and ancestors. It is good to value the pictures of your grandfather and mother, but you should not put up your parents pictures first and then put True Parents pictures next to them. True Parents are the ancestors. You establish the ancestors through this.
Through this you will be able to turn from the two-dimensional family foundation to the traditional foundation. There, you will have no relationship with Satan. This is how the Principle is. The tribal messiah is not something somebody has to do and others don't have to do. If you do not do it, your whole family and relatives will be in trouble. If the descendants do not do it on this earth, their ancestors in the other world will curse them several hundred times more than they would Adam and Eve who fell. I cannot take responsibility for this. I cannot stop them from accusing you. You will be accused if you do not do it. You have to do the five percent responsibility given to human beings. If you cannot do it, there will be no perfection.
Even in the satanic world people put up pictures of their parents. Because the Last Days came, people want to attend the heavenly Parents and use their photograph as educational material. I am famous. Even the Christian ministers acknowledge that I am a patriot. The entire world bows its head in front of my accomplishments. So they will think, As we have hung up these pictures, we cannot quarrel as husband and wife before these people.
What is it that Rev. Moon has taught? They will also teach their sons and daughters, saying, You kids, you cannot do that in front of Rev. Moon. As they honor the pictures more than they do the pictures of their own parents, their ancestors will come and honor True Parents as their ancestors. It will be an altar upon which their ancestors come and honor that house. Because there is a way they can receive the blessings of the heavenly world through this, at three o'clock in the morning, although you may be asleep they will expel all the satanic devils around your family and relatives.
You must also put up the flag. When you hang the picture and raise the flag, everything is done. When you hang my picture in your room and raise the Unification Church flag, you will be a family member in the heavenly nation.
I will make them family members of the heavenly nation. There have been many people who met with misfortune because they cursed someone who was raising the flag. This is very mysterious. There was even an incident in which someone who wagged a finger at me got sick in the finger and got cured only after praying and repenting with his hand up for several nights.
Why do such things happen? When heavenly fortune comes, it cannot be blocked by some individual fortune. This is the path of absolute destiny. Although, on the path of fortune, the four directions of east, west, north, and south can change places, on the path of absolute destiny above and below is above and below, and left and right is left and right. They cannot be changed around. It is because the time has come to the Republic of Korea that I am telling you to have them put up the pictures.
Until now the fallen world has been connected to false parents. When you attend True Parents, it is easy to be engrafted horizontally. It will happen in the family. Otherwise, you have to go through the nation and the world and then come back to this side for engrafting.
My having a loving heart and the heart to save all people creates an environment to engraft on that family level, and what a blessing this is! If they don't listen, you should even scold them to make them engraft. Through this they can become a member of the heavenly family. Those who looked at Moses staff all lived. If you look at the Unification Church flag, bowing down to it whenever you go out and whenever you come in, and if you offer a bow to the picture whenever you go out and whenever you come in, you will live.
