Blessing and Ideal Family Part 2
by Rev. Sun Myung Moon
7) The individual Seven-Year Course and the Family-Level Seven-Year Course
You must be blessed by Father. This is the formation-stage Blessing. It is not a Blessing at the perfection stage. It is for going over the perfection level of the growth stage while you are in the domain of the fall. If you get blessed and have three spiritual children, it means you have gone over the perfection level of the growth stage. After that there is the seven-year course. There is a seven-year course before the Blessing and another seven-year course after the Blessing. Father also has passed through that course.
Before the family-level seven-year course, you must accomplish your own individual seven-year course. In the process of history, there was the process of growth until the perfection level of the growth stage for establishing a family. In the same way, there needs to be a preparation period. History has been woven centering on that kind of period.
The 6,000 years of history until now corresponds to God's restoration providence to prepare to fulfill 7,000 years of history. Through these 7,000 years of history, God is seeking a perfect man. That is why we have to go the seven-year course.
But for fallen man, this cannot be done just in seven years. There has to be a seven-year period of indemnity and a seven-year period of fulfillment. Do you understand what I am saying?
In other words, there is a seven-year period to go up to the standard before the fall, and then there needs to be a seven-year period to go to the position of perfection. There remains seven years of indemnification and seven years for fulfillment.
You who are gathered here have gone through a seven-year period, but you have another seven years to go. This is the course that the blessed couples are going now. If you do not take this road, even if you are blessed you cannot be registered in the Kingdom of Heaven. The gates of the Kingdom of Heaven are all open, but you cannot enter if you do not go through this seven-year course. Without preparing a ceremonial gown you cannot enter. Despite the fact that Father has taught you this Principle content, if you do not act upon it, Father cannot take responsibility for you. When you stand in the position of taking fundamental responsibility from a Principled viewpoint, Father then will take responsibility for you. Do you understand?
You must be separated at least once after receiving the Blessing. For that reason, after Father gives the Blessing this time, I will separate all of the couples for at least six months. You must all be separated south and north and find the road of your own salvation and go over. If you do not do this, you cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven even if you get blessed. This is the Principle. Do you understand?
