The Tribal Messiah
Reverend Sun Myung Moon
Chapter 5 - Activity of Tribal Messiahs
1. Prayer For Tribal Messiahs
Heavenly Father! Today is January 3, 1989. At this time, 2:25 p.m., I have clarified all the contents of history and decided on the location of the Fatherland that heaven desires. As I prayed in greeting You on the first day of 1989, please bring forth tribal messiahs. Please gladly receive the Unification Church delegates gathered here at this hour, and the families who are blessed as tribal messiahs.
The people who belong to all the tribes on this earth are in the position of tribal level Adam and Eve. Their ancestors stand in the position of the unfallen archangel, and they should receive the support of Heaven to protect their tribes and descendants in the physical world. Thus they should become one body centering on the Messiah, and then the unity of Cain and Abel on earth will occur. The unity of the spiritual world and physical world centering on the vertical standard will also come about. Since the territory of the love of tribal messiahs centering on God is decided, Satan cannot reside where he wants. Therefore, according to the Principle, the time has come when Satan has to move out of his place and leave from here.
Since they know this, these families who bear the responsibility of tribal messiah should represent with all their heart and effort the road of hardship that was taken to restore through indemnity the external Cain nation on the world level. They should realize that in their family, they must work hard to restore their mother and father, siblings and relatives. Since that is so, no matter how difficult it is, in order to quickly bring about liberation, they must take on the responsibility of tribal messiah by offering all their heart with sincerity. They have gathered here to start this mobilization. In the name of Heavenly Father and True Parents, I want to send out these people who desire mobilization, so please receive us.
I pray that all people who are living on earth now will be filled with one mind, the mind of Heaven that cares about the nation. On the foundation of the fulfillment of Your desire having been prepared on earth, all the spirit men in the spiritual world who came with resentment in their heart now stand in the position of being harmonized and united with that place. By doing that they can perfect the vertical foundation of Cain and Abel, and they know that the basis for God to dwell in the heavenly world and the Physical world centering on true love has been decided. Moreover, the time in history that You desired has come on a worldwide level when the family foundation, tribal foundation and racial foundation can be connected with the national standard. Please make this time, as I proclaim this, a glorious time, a victorious time, a time of transferring everything, and in so doing, I fervently desire that You approve the right of tribal messiah.
Now we know clearly and pledge by raising both hands. Therefore, please receive it with glory. I pray that You record this event in the Book of Life in the spiritual world, that we proclaim tribal messiahship to all the cosmos in the name of True Parents and Your name. Now that we have finally reached this time in history, please receive this in gladness.
Now the central world headquarters of the Kingdom of Heaven on earth has been established, to which all people can connect to their hometowns by going beyond national boundaries and centering on Korea. A national standard now exists where ancestors of the original hometown can settle centering on true love. When all nations on a horizontal level can connect with this vertical standard, Satan cannot touch any of them. This is that kind of time.
When each person seriously asks where he is in the course of his lifetime, he can know the answer. When a person seeks to know whether he is a genuine child of Heavenly Father or not, he can realize how external and false he is. If he sees this, he cannot return to God without shedding tears of repentance. We know this is that kind of time.
Now your sons and daughters can return and do the mission of tribal messiah without persecution, centering on the foundation of victory that Jesus wanted. They have determined themselves to become tribal owners who can guard the heartistic foundation that can go beyond the nation and connect to the world. Heavenly Father, please bring blessing to them for their sake.
All people who chose the path of religion in this history full of resentment had to leave their homes and abandon their family; they even had to betray their nation. We can now attend to our nation, our hometown and our parents. Finally, we have won a victory in this world so that we can praise Heaven by that attendance. Please grant that we do not become people who forget this joyous age, people who deviate from righteousness. Please bless them that they become people who follow what is right and who form tribes that can connect to the Kingdom of Heaven.
Father, You know how much You have longed for this time in history when I can now offer this prayer, and You know how much I have hoped and worked for this time by risking my whole life. Though at this time I would like to liberate and comfort the Unification Church members who are following me, still we know that without fulfilling our responsibility for restoration centering on our tribes, neither the land of South Korea nor of North Korea can be saved. When we know this, we must again go the miserable road of the cross. In order to attend our physical father and mother, we must again fulfill our filial responsibility in the same way that True Parents have attended God on this earth and carried the cross of love. Thus we must take up the cross and attend our mother and father with love. I have bestowed upon them the right of tribal messiahship and the opportunity to accomplish this task. Heavenly Father, please mobilize all their ancestors, all the thousands of ancestors and, in the same way, that You have supported me in the past, please support them as well.
We can unify the world and establish the right of liberation by connecting to Father who is the worldwide center. By doing that we can become the ancestors who can liberate all people. Please make us people who can build Heaven's nation that is occupied by ancestors and citizens who can take care of the world.
True Parents also welcome this day with joy and establish it as a day of hope for the nation; therefore, Heavenly Father please bless it.
Let us remain connected to the providential effort of all the ages and continue to advance, always holding on to Your love. As they travel the way of Your will, I hope that You will give them good fortune in all their affairs. Let the glory of victory surround them for 10,000 years, and let that glory appear wherever they go.
Make them bold and strong. Allow them to establish their true messianic authority with a bold and strong mind that never loses the subjectivity of Heaven, and to take care of their parents, ancestors and environment with Your love. I sincerely wish and ask for this.
Even though we have not yet accomplished it, I give them the name of tribal messiah. With warm love, please give them great support and help them expand the realm of the restoration of their tribes so that they can achieve the standard of Heaven and advance to the world of the unification of north and south. Please allow them to connect to Asia, the world and finally to the liberation of Heaven. All this I proclaim in the name of True Parents. Amen! Amen! Amen! (1989.1.3. Hannam-dong House; 1989.1.8. Headquarters Church)
2. Resolution As Tribal Messiah
1) The Tribal Messiah Needs Determination
Until now you did not know how to go to your hometown. Why do I tell you to be a tribal messiah? I am telling you to become a true parent. Those who are here should say, "Thank you," even if I make you suffer until you die. You should know that if you suffer until your death, there is a hundred, even a thousand times more blessings of Heaven which will go to you. If you make an environment where you gladly take on that hardship, the Fatherland will be established automatically.
Thus, you have to become better than any filial son in history, any loyal person in history or any historical saint. You have to become better. You must inherit this tradition. In return for my sending you to sacrifice for the world, I am giving you the kind of love that does not exist in the world and giving you blessing. You must know this tradition clearly.
Your value, which is higher than that of any great saint, cannot be exchanged for a million dollars in gold. Knowing your great value, do not become a foolish person who abandons this in a brief instant. Can you abandon this because of your individual feelings or because of your individual difficulty? [No.] Unless you attain an unwavering standard, both your hometown and the Fatherland mav be lost. (1979.1.14. Belvedere)
Take responsibility for your tribe. Save your tribe. Take on this great tribal messiah responsibility. Risk your life and go.
How incredibly difficult has it been for me to pioneer this road of restoration by pushing forward through the opposition of all Korea, the opposition of all of Christianity and the opposition of the whole world? When you think about what I have persevered through and accomplished, you must at least be able to save your tribe since you are working in a situation where people do not oppose you but even welcome you.
You cannot think that meeting like this is normal or habitual. This is historical. We are going back, returning to the original ideal. This is different. This age will be different.
You should go out into a foreign land, train and develop new habits of working hard for God's will; then you should reform the whole village. You cannot follow. In the same way that God created the objective realm of His love by investing His whole being, you must also invest yourself completely. You must unite into one without fail. If you rise to the highest position of any people in your hometown, the spiritual world will support you. Watch and see whether that will happen or not. Make many video tapes and witness. (1988.6.15. East Garden)
How many tears have you men shed in your longing for me? That is the problem. How much have you lived with that kind of heart? I can weep for God so easily, even now. No words are needed. If Heaven asks, "Are you thinking about God's heart and will?" I can always say, "Yes." Since Heaven desires this, we must become like that.
As what kind of person should you return to your hometown? You have to become a person who is always connected to the heart and will of Heaven. (1988.6.1. Headquarters Church)
2) Become A Substitute
Who do Unification Church members love? We love both God and Jesus. While attending Jesus and God, we make a connection with our parents and become a person who loves the land of our hometown where our parents reside. Without a true parent appearing who can do that, there still is no true land of hometown.
In this world, where is the real land of hometown? Is it in a big church where many Christians gather? No. A true filial son is a person who can think first of the heart of his parents, even when he endures the pain of a bleeding finger. God does not want someone, who in a good place, sings of his comfort and sleeps a deep sleep.
Parents are drawn to a person who, even while he bleeds and is in pain, says, "Please forgive my lack," and does not hesitate to shed his blood and work hard with agony.
What will you do when you go to your hometown and meet your parents? What will a person who comes as a true parent do? Because that person comes in the place of our fallen ancestors Adam and Eve, he has to repair and heal the wound that they made by their mistake.
Adam's fall threw mankind into chaos. Jesus has to restore this. The fall cannot be restored without parents' healing efforts.
True Parents have to do this. Would they have to restore the three billion people of the world? No. Their filial sons and daughters, the loyal men and women who have done their filial duty to their Parents, go out in the name of True Parents and as the representatives of True Parents, restore them all.
What I felt as I returned to Korea was, "Heavenly Father! Can this Korea that You love so much really become the land of hometown for all people?" This country has to become not only the hometown for all people, but also the hometown for me. God loves, as His sons and daughters, the citizens of this country who fully accomplish their filial and loyal duty. We must make this land of Korea a foothold where the ideology that can save the world is fully established.
This is a harsh country where thirty million people have been mistreated and have had to face the cold wind that blows from the desolate fields and mountains, and even encounter the attacks of fierce beasts. Korea is in that kind of state. We have to think of making this country the hometown for God and the Fatherland for all people.
Just by our fighting for our nation we do not become a person who can establish God's nation. The nation we support has to be one which has determined to comfort the heart and mind of God, and to not only be responsible on the racial level for the path that the world has to go, but also to make the thorny path that God travels for the sake of world into a smooth and level road.
We have a place to go to. That place is hometown. We must go to our hometown, meet our parents and follow their laws. I have to take on the responsibility of parents in place of them, and by connecting to others with deep relationships of heart, we have to lead all people who are in the realm of death into the path of life. By doing that we can unite all levels into one and make the Kingdom of Heaven and of peace.
Has this nation become the Kingdom of Heaven? By centering on Korea, have all people and all nations been able to become happy for 10,000 years? No! But from now on, Korea has to prepare that kind of path.
This path we have to go, the path that God goes, is the path of the providence of restoration, and we must go this road absolutely. By establishing ourselves as true parents of our lineage, we have to realize that nation and take back the world again. This is the place that Heaven and earth must go without fail.
What are you to do after going to your hometown? You must meet your parents. Even though it is your hometown, you must also make a relationship of heart with your parents. If your parents are dead, you have to make a heartistic relationship with your hometown. If that does not happen, you cannot restore your tribe. A new parent and new son and daughter have to become united centering on a family that has established the heavenly new law, and they then form a restored tribe and nation. (1965.10.10)
3) Become The Best Filial Son
You have to return to your hometown and become a better filial son than anyone else. If there are filial sons in your hometown, you have to become a royal, filial son who is better than any of the filial sons who ever lived in that area in all history. If a loyal servant or employee is better than you, you have to become one who is even better.
Then no matter how much you have become a filial son and loyal servant, it still has no value if you do not also have a strong horizontal connection with True Parents. When a father stands on a horizontal line centering on True Parents, the vertical Father appears. As a perfect minus comes to exist, the perfect plus appears as well. (1988.5.21. Headquarters Church)
4) Go With A Grateful Heart
You are a group, going where? When you say, "I am going to my hometown," where are you supposed to go? If it is Choongbook, you have to go to your hometown in Choongbook.
When you were young, you ran around on a mountain, and there you plucked flowers and pulled out grass. You have to go to the place where you have many stories still lingering, the place where you can find all the numerous, stimulating elements which remind you of your father and mother and bring back your childhood memories. By going there you can look at the mountains and streams and say, "Here is the yard where I played a long time ago. The tree that I climbed has grown this tall!" You can hold the beautiful tree and feel fully all the memories of when you were climbing that tree, and suddenly your mother came and was so worried that you would fall that she wept as she warned you to be careful.
Again when you look at a well, you should be able to remember times when you were drawing water from the well and your beloved mother came and scolded you because she was worried that you might fall in. You should be able to think of times like when you took a bath in a pond like a naughty boy, or when you entered a rice paddy field and this happened and that happened. While remembering all these things, you can think of your mother and father, and how you loved your brothers and sisters. When you look for your mother and your mother is not there and your siblings also are not there, you go to where they are buried and say, "Mother, I am here," and tears will flow down your cheeks.
Which would make your mother happiest: for your tears to flow spontaneously and naturally when you call out "Mother" as you remember her with your mind and heart filled with love for her and your hometown, or for you to just sort of end up there alone and without any feeling say, "Mother, I am here"? Which kind of son would be more desirable for a mother: one who remembers in detail the circumstances of when you were young a long time ago and who longs for her with his mind filled with thoughts of her as he greets her in front of her grave saying, "Mom!" -- or a son who is less heartistic? Which son would be closer to the mother in the realm of the heart: the son who comes tearfully, feeling that kind of deep longing and love, or a son who does not have that kind of feeling but comes only with his ambitions for success and his achievement of having become a president or a government minister, and says, "I come as a son who can be a blessing to you, Mother." Would the first or the second son be closer? [First son.]
In the same way, when Reverend Moon of the Unification Church goes to his hometown, with what heart should I come? Should I be completely centered on God with my original mind, as a true son who is embraced fully by the True Parent of mankind who has searched for His object of love for so long? Shall I say, "Father, I have come," knowing that God created everything in the universe to be in the bosom of His love and feeling completely full of deep gratitude for all the things that God created, for their beauty and the value of His love as my True Parent'? Should I shed tears in front of God with that kind of heart, or should I simply announce, "I have come out of Danbury prison"? [The first.] You are correct. (1988.5.11. Chungjoo Church)
5) Take The Role Of Owner
You are the same. By returning to the hometown that you have been away from for forty years, you have to play the role of owner. Together with me you have to take the role of owner, of a new ancestor for your lineage.
In order to take the role of that kind of owner, I had to endure being chased out, but you can take the role of owner in this age when you can be welcomed. You must think of the fact that heaven and earth are completely filled with the love of Mother and Father. (1988.10.3. Ilhwa Yongin Factory)
When I remember my past, I remember searching through all the land and the mountain near the village where I lived, and feeling satisfied only when I had dug out what lives in the deepest gorge of that mountain. Similarly, I was comforted only when I exposed what insects or what fish lived in the swamp. In order to do that, I stayed up all night. I wandered all over the mountain and searched in every nook and cranny. When I remembered some of the creatures that I found, I felt comforted only when I was also able to remember where it lived. Because I have this kind of character, I could uncover Heaven and earth so completely.
This time when I went to Cheju Island, I felt the same. It is surrounded on all four directions by the sea. How can I live if I do not know what lives in it? I was frustrated. Since I did not know what lived on that mountain surrounded by the sea. I felt suffocated.
Since I have this kind of character, and since there is both the devil and God, if I think that I am enclosed in armor by the devil, how suffocated would I feel? God is calling to me while I am in there, but I cannot hear. We must destroy that being and that barrier to God. We must eliminate it without a trace. By breaking through in this way, I was able to disclose the Divine Principle and establish the Unification Church.
Thus you must become the real owners of your village. You must love everything, even insects, and in that way love your hometown. If a person who does not love his hometown says that he wants to love his nation, he is a fake. If there is no root, there cannot be a trunk. One cannot exist without the other. You must love your hometown, and as you love it, become full of ecstasy as a perfected man and perfected woman.... You must be able to attend your wife as a queen who is victorious in her fight with the world, as a queen of victory who pacified all the enemies of Korea, and as a noble person who attends her husband. Your wife has to realize that you have come together as a couple and she can attend you, her husband, as that kind of king.
Centering on this love, we can say that I am a part of a framework, a construction that is connected through 10,000 years of history. When we say that I am an essential part of one world of God's love representing the nation, representing Heaven and earth, and representing God, He will not deny this and say, "No." In your hometown you must become a person who can be proud of the authority of being a owner who can do that.
Your sons and daughters should become like that by inheriting this beautiful tradition. You should elevate your standard as much as you can as you mature yourself, your family and your tribe, and leave behind descendants who can completely inherit that kind of tradition.
By giving your love to your hometown with your blood, sweat and tears, you can make it your place of origin, where you can settle down. You are becoming the ancestor. You are the founder, the originator. It is the original ancestors responsibility to help refugees from the fallen world. You are to be like a true original ancestor. Without having the heart of an original ancestor, you cannot spread God's truth in your hometown. This is the teaching of the Divine Principle. (1988.6.1 Headquarters Church)
Now you should think that you are working as a servant of love for the Kingdom of Heaven. Think that you are a servant of love building the Kingdom of Heaven, a secret agent of love, an information agent for a network of spies. What is there that you cannot do? In order to live, a man can do the work of a woman. He can even take the role of a beggar. You should have the attitude that, in order to save your nation, to save your relatives and to save your nation, you can do more than that. When you actually work in that way, your village will submit naturally without a word. (1989.1.3. Hannam-dong House)
6) Become The Seed Of Your Tribe
Today you must return to your hometown and become someone who is able to be like a seed of Heaven. As you establish yourself and in essence plant that seed, you can create an environment that not only all Koreans, but also Heaven and earth can visit, that God can visit anytime. If you depart to the other world after having done that, you will be able to live in the spirit world receiving love as a true son or daughter in the Kingdom of Heaven. From now on, you must choose to live this way of life. (1990.1.14 Headquarters Church)
To go to your hometown when I say, "Go to hometown," is the way to sew the seed of heaven, right? This is the way to sow the kind of seeds God wanted to grow. Since your lineage is descended from fallen Adam and Eve, by your sowing new seed, your relatives can connect to a new root. When you plant new seed, you should pour buckets of fertilizer on it. You must go there ready to receive abusive language. You must be able to hear slanderous comments from people who do not understand your genuine heart and you may suffer many hardships. Endure for three years. Actually, it will not take three years. Everything will be finished in six months. When you were going out for the first witnessing campaign, I asked you to restore 120 house holds in place of your hometown and to establish a church center, right? You all failed that, right? Then I told you to do home church, and you failed that too, right? Now is the last time. The last. (1991.8.29. International Training Institute)
I blessed you as the seed to create a whole new historical world, as one family of God. You are the seed. So many families have grown up, but they did not become the family that Heaven and earth needed or God needed. They were not the true seed.
When I tell you to go as tribal messiah, I am telling you to go to your tribe, plant new seed, and -- since everything born there is false, since they are wild olive trees -- you must make them into true olive trees, engraft them and make fields of true olive trees. For your clan there is no greater gospel. This is the most precious accomplishment in the world.
If the Unification Church has that kind of authority, if Reverend Moon has the qualification to appoint you to that position on behalf of God, all of your ancestors who are now in the spiritual world will open their eyes wide with astonishment and gratitude.... How they must have longed for that moment for many thousands of years. Your individual life is not the only problem with which we must deal. Until now your ancestors in the eternal spiritual world have eagerly waited for the one day of happiness when their tedious environment can be totally changed. When you think of this, the greatest blessing for that clan is the fact that the opportunity has now been opened and the leader has come who can hoist the flag of a new age and mobilize and command his ancestors and relatives.
It is not always an appropriate time to plant. Do you understand? Not just anybody can plant the seed nor can it be planted anytime. Even if a person is chosen as a seed, he can decay. You must emerge with a mind concentrated on fulfilling God's will and, with the deep heart that God desires and your teacher desires, go to your hometown, become a true seed and grow branches of a true olive tree, and then give the members of your clan a branch cut from it. By cutting and giving them branches, you must engraft them all. You must sever the base of your clan, which has the root of death from Satan. You must realize that the territory of eternal life will expand in the realm of your clan as you graft onto this precious root of True Parents. Your clan must be engrafted to the root of the true Adam, the root which is united with and centered upon God's love, the root which is centered on absolute love from which no person can separate, and upon the ideology which enables mankind to complete its portion of responsibility. (1990.1.l4. Headquarters Church)
7) For The Restoration Of Your Tribe, Unite Your Mind And Body
Heaven always prepares everything before we go. But because we do not see the opportunities God sets up and properly inherit that preparation, we always lose it. By not acting upon this preparation, we do so much damage and harm to God's work.
When you became a member of the Unification Church despite so much opposition, you came with a very serious heart, right? How serious is this current time? You must know that the path you must go to completely win over our opposition still remains. You must still become a patriot who works to establish the Fatherland despite all the opposition. You become a vanguard of patriots by building a tribe. If you do not save your tribe, you cannot become a patriot. With that kind of mind, you must enthusiastically return to your hometown and reach out.
The process is simple. Cain and Abel have to unite. Body and mind have to become one. You must come to your mother and father with your body and mind united. This is an admonition, This is the secret of unity. A person who is not one in mind and body cannot bring about unity. One's mind must be thinking for the sake of God's will. That body must act for the sake of God's will. Since the direction of the mind is concern for God's will, the actions of the body must also be directed toward accomplishing God's will. Your mind and body can mix with each other. You have to know that.
By parents and children becoming one, centering on the family, you can restore the realm of your tribe. Since there are many blessed families returning to their hometown, those families have to invest themselves one hundred percent. The entire family has to become united as one in mind and body for the restoration of your tribe. All of them have to do that. In this way your grandfather, grandmother and all your other relatives have to come to want to live in your house, saying, 'I like your house, so I will live there." Then your grandfather and grandmother will shed tears whenever they have to leave you. This will also happen with your mother and father, your elder sister or younger brother. (1989.1.3. Hannam-dong House)
8) Make Associations With Other Tribes
The unification of Korea will happen when, centering on Reverend Moon of the Unification Church, all Unification Church members completely become plus to the nation as a minus and then form a minus on the horizontal level to me as a vertical plus. Since I prepared this foundation for a unified nation, your tribes should coalesce into one united whole in order to bring about the unification of North and South Korea. (1989.1.8. Headquarters Church)
Those who restored their central tribe quickly will from now on emerge as leaders who can move all countries to unite into one country. Therefore, you must take on your tribe. The reason that the Israel people perished after following Moses is because the tribes did not unite.
When you look from a worldwide perspective, from twelve, they became 36, and then 360. Everybody has to be assimilated into that. We must go the opposite way of the twelve tribes of Israel and, instead of not uniting, we must bring all together under God. (1989.4.1. Belvedere)
9) Centering On Your Tribe, Compete
What do you have to think about today? [Pointing at one member.] What is your last name? [Morris.] As Morris, you do not represent America. You are a messiah representing your tribe. If you become that, I will entrust America to you. By entrusting America to you, I am telling you to save it. I will entrust to you the responsibility to save your nation. Do you understand? [Yes.]
Unification members can compete from now on. Centering on your tribe, compete to see who can make the number one tribe. Your ancestors also know this and are saying, "We must win! Why do you hesitate? Act! Act!" and in this way are already competing. (1988.11.13. Belvedere)
10) Tribal Messiahs Become Self-Supporting
What I have to do now is connect the fate of world. Everything is already prepared to unify the world into one. If North and South Korea become peaceful, the foundation for their unity is already set and when they unify, the world itself will instantly unify into one world. From this year, the more quickly you act, the faster everything will be fulfilled. By giving your utmost effort there, you shall totally advance! [Amen!]
Now even if I do not come to you, you can act individually, right? [Yes.] You are now grown people who have families, right? You are tribal messiahs. Who helps the messiah? If he has to be helped, he cannot become a real messiah. In Japanese, "messiah" means rice salesman. There is no special, real messiah. Who is to help the tribal messiah? Messiahs should all help the nation. Isn't that so? They have to help the nation. The nation should not help them.
Who has to pay taxes? Should the nation pay taxes, or should you pay the taxes? [We have to.] Should a tribe pay tax or a nation? [Tribe.] The tribe should pay tax. (1989. Hannam-dong House)
Should a tribal messiah come and ask for help? Tell me. I never prayed for help. What will happen if I help? If someone is helped, that assistance becomes a chrysalis [cocoon]. Before praying, act more, ten times more. If nothing happens by your giving all your energy even to the point of death, then pray. Even if you do a little bit, witnessing will work. Even if you do not pray, money will follow. That is how things are. (1990.5.25. Hannamdong House)
11) Work At Least Four Years In Hometown
For the sake of your tribal messiahship, you must run with all your energy. The day there is unity, you will automatically receive the blessing.
A long time ago I was fiercely persecuted as I developed everything, but now your relatives welcome you. Your ancestors are bound to help you directly. They are bound to teach you everything. Do you understand that? Unification Church members look simple, but they remain because spiritual world teaches them everything. Do you follow me because you like me? How hard it is to follow me, right! But it is not hard anymore. If you go through hardship for four years, you Unification Church members will hit the jackpot. (1989.2.5. Headquarters Church)
From now on, do not close your mouth. If people come and gather, in the same way that I taught you for seven years in the 1950s without sleeping more than two hours a night, try teaching them for seven years night or day. You do not have to do it for seven years. It does not take four years. Everything will be finished in four months. If I go to hometown, I will unite everything instantly. You must teach your parents well. Teach your siblings clearly with sincerity. With your own hands, without borrowing another's mouth, you must teach through your blood and sweat. If your parents, elder brother, sister, younger siblings and cousins follow your example, they will all call you the treasure of their house. (1989.1.3. Hannam-dong House)
12) Plant The Root Of Heart
Until now you have been living in a foreign land. Now you are to return to your hometown. Go to your hometown, shed tears and give all your effort. Just as the people of Israel lived in Egypt for 400 years, we have done a similar thing for 43 years. Now you must return to your hometown and plant the root of love. Love God, and your parents, brothers and sisters, In that way, you must cut the source of accusation from Satan on a worldwide level. Because the Israelites did not do that, they could not form the ideal Kingdom of Heaven in their blessed land of Canaan. Do not desire something of Satan's world. Even if we wander around wearing nothing more than a sack, we are the best. With that kind of confidence and pride, you must advance by digesting all opposition and filling your village with the sounds of love. Remember this well and join the effort. (1988.6.1. Headquarters Church)
What are you to do when you go to your hometown? You should not fight. Instead, make effort to plant the root of heart so that it can blossom. In the land of your hometown, there must have been many loyal servants of the nation, many loyal wives, filial sons and filial daughters among the ancestors who lived there through thousands of years of history. You have to do more than them, so that your standard is greater than theirs. That is the condition you must set. If there is a patriot among those in the spiritual world who formerly lived in the area of your hometown, no matter what kind of patriot he was, your standard should be such that he must be able to bow down to you when you go to spiritual world and say, "You were exemplary." When these people were living in the physical world, they lived in the domain of Satan. So can they, who are in the position of the good archangel, surpass you, who centering on God, is sowing this heartistic seed of a new ancestry and planting the root of original heart in your hometown? You must make a foundation which moves them to naturally bow down to you.
Then the spiritual world will support you. To support you, they will pull the whole clan to you, gathering them closely around you. In that way, the spirits who are centering on God will come down and surround you in the position of Adam. Because your good ancestors will be surrounding you, they will create a realm where evil and Satan cannot invade. As you make a foundation centering on that standard of original heart, you inherit the position of the original true ancestor. Then through your heartistic connections with your clan -- your grandfather, grandmother and everybody else -- will be moved to bow down to you.
Thus you should live for their sake. Do many activities for their sake. Representing your clan, fulfill the mission of tribal messiah and thereby resurrect your clan.
In that way when your relatives support you, the village will support you. Then when many people join the Unification Church, their counties will automatically be connected to a province, and thus, from the bottom up, the family standard will be connected to the tribal standard. They will be connected through many layers. (1988.5.15. Headquarters Church)
3. The Goal You Must Accomplish
1) Foundation Of Heart
I am busy, but what did I come here to do today? I won a tremendous victory by establishing the heavenly conditions of indemnity, and in that way restored what had been lost on every level, from the individual standard to the family, tribal, racial, national, world and cosmic standard. Today I have come to hand all this down to the Unification sons and daughters who are throughout the whole peninsula of Korea. We say that the right of inheritance centers on true love, right? [Yes.] Also, the right to have the same rank? [Yes.] And the right of attendance, right? [Yes.]
Since this is so, we must have the firm belief that, "I represent the world! I will, with my own hands, unite Korea, unite North and South and unite our clan! I will be remembered as a true ancestor!" In that way you will be able to inherit the destiny of a heavenly connection with me.
What is it that you have to do before uniting North and South Korea? You must go to your hometown and move all your ancestors and everyone living in your hometown to sincerely love you. That is your task. You are returning with the restored right of the first son. When they try to oppose you, their hearts will beat faster with an uneasy feeling. Believe this. Do you understand? If you push forward with the confidence that any barriers will fall away, they will indeed be removed. Feel with assurance that you are a powerful representative of Heaven: "By the path that I am going my clan will be liberated and the tribe of the Kingdom of Heaven will be liberated. My country will be liberated, and my world and the Kingdom of Heaven, where I will go, will be liberated. You are that kind of representative.
Why? Since you have the rightful position of true child in front of True parents, you are endowed with the right of inheritance and the right of the same rank. You must believe this truth, that you have the special right of heaven, and invest everything to create the realm of true love. In the same way that God invested everything He had, by your investing completely, your clan will be resurrected and, as your clan resurrects, the nation will resurrect. (1988.5.17. Headquarters Church)
Why is it that I came to send you to hometown? I sent you to your hometown for you to form a ninety-degree angle between yourself horizontally with God as the vertical standard, and for you as the vertical representative of God and True Parents to unite in a ninety-degree angle with your clan on a horizontal level. Centering on the will of God to form heavenly tribes, I sent you to your hometown. Therefore their lives have to turn around 180 degrees, but before that, they have to make this ninety-degree angle with you. It is your hometown. Nobody can oppose you. I have prepared a foundation of victory on the worldwide level; then on this foundation of public victory that Father has prepared, you must return to your hometown. Then, just as I did, you must stand in the position of a substantial model of love for all of history, someone who has inherited the victory over historical struggles through the payment of indemnity. In this position, your whole clan and all future descendants will bow their heads to you and pledge themselves to you, saying that you are truly the ancestor of love. Without doing that, you cannot have victory in your hometown. (1988.8.20. Ilhwa Yongin Factory)
Would you like to fight for a good result? [Yes.] This is the fight to send your mother and father and your entire clan to the Kingdom of Heaven. You should go find them and fight for this result.
For seven years I slept only two hours a day. You have to do that, too. I made President Hyo Won Eu lecture sixteen hours a day for three and a half years. When President Eu was feeling tired, I would shout, "You, are you lying down in order to kill someone? How can you lie down without even telling me"? When I think about this now, my heart feels pain. He liked fish. Do you know a kind of tiny shrimp? Is it called gonjengee? That shrimp is preserved with salt. Wow! I could not even go near him, because of the smell. I can still visualize how he ate that with his hands in this way. Since our expansion in America I could have given him ribs to eat by the dozens instead. When I think of how wretchedly he lived, sometimes I feel pain in my heart. Why did we do that? We lived that way in order to establish a tradition.
From now on, you must proclaim the word. From now on, proclaim Divine Principle by staying up all night and lecturing in your town for eight hours or even more. Just as I did it for seven years, you can do the same. It will not take seven years. If you do this for seven months, everything will turn around. If that happens, you never know what I will bring to you in trucks when your clan invites me to come.
If your clan invites me, should I receive their invitation or not? [You should receive it.] Why should I receive it? Where Cain and Abel unite, God will dwell. When a tribe unites, Reverend Moon can go there anytime. When I go there, you can lead all of the clan, your grandfather, grandmother and all of your relatives; 120 people can gather and they should be able to bow, saying, "Our ancestor has come." That should be your desire. (1989.1.8. Headquarters Church)
2) Securing The Right Of National Messiah
From now, you are all tribal messiahs. Since I dispatched all the tribal messiahs, you should make the right of the national messiah. (1990.3 27. Belvedere)
3) Responsibility To Fulfill In One's Hometown
From now on, you should not put the Unification Church behind you as everyone goes home, saying that he or she will eat well and live well. First, you should work in your hometown so that the church is improved. Second, your sons and daughters should not receive contempt. You should not become a begging tramp and be indebted in any way. By shedding blood and sweat to make a true and valuable foundation, you should raise your children and educate them with this new tradition. Moreover, you make your living by saving your clan, by investing yourself completely and, after that, allowing them to establish you. If not, with a sacrificial spirit you should just offer yourself as a clean offering. Without people who can inherit and exemplify this kind of spirit, we cannot prepare a national foundation for unity in South Korea. You should know this clearly.
When you think of becoming a true owner in your true hometown, understand that the individual is not the owner. The owner is the person who takes responsibility for his clan; the owner is someone who leads a tribe, and who represents the twelve tribal elders. Moreover, he is the owner who can represent the nation, and the messianic proxy who can represent the world. You should know clearly that when Unificationists return to their hometown, it is their responsibility and duty to represent Heaven and earth and to accomplish the responsibility of the owner and victor who is a true, loyal servant centered on God and who lives to liberate God and True Parents. [Amen.] (1988.5.17. Pusan Church)
In your hometown you must plant the new seed of God's lineage. You should do this such that all the hills and dales, the mountains and streams in essence bow their heads in praise of the great sacrifice made for this ancestry to finally begin. If a flower blossoms, you should regard the first flower as the flower of heaven; the second as the flower of Parents; the third as the flower of your first son, and the fourth and fifth flowers as yours. You rascals! Does doing things as you see fit work? Far from it. (1988.10.3. Ilhwa Yongin Factory)
4. Attitude At The Time Of Activity In Hometown
1) Do Not Envy
Why did the Israelite people who left Egypt perish when they encountered the seven tribes of Canaan? What did they think when they entered Canaan? How wretched they must have looked with everyone having wandered around and lived in the desert for forty years? Would they have worn beautiful clothes? They lived in the middle of sand, sand and more sand. Could they take a bath there? When they got to Canaan, the people there had nice houses, sheep, farmland and lived prosperously. When they entered Canaan, their elders should have taught them not to envy the women and men of Canaan. Unfortunately, they did not teach them to resist being contaminated by the materialistic standard there. You who are returning to hometown now are similar to the people of Israel who entered the land of Canaan, so do not envy rich people as you return to your hometown! Do not be jealous of men with power! Do not get spoiled! You must have the proper education. The tradition of loving God, loving your descendants and loving the people who are restoring the realm of Israel is the best.
When you attend a church holding your child, do not get distracted. You should soak that land with blood and tears and with weeping that makes your cells and bone marrow tremble. You should be filled with the happiness of returning home after thousands and thousands of years. Heaven should proclaim that this land, which has been drenched in blood and tears, is an exalted land. From there will start the Kingdom of Heaven. (1988.5.20. Taegu Church)
You are going back to your hometown to resurrect it. Your hometown is not yet connected. You have that kind of mission.
The people of Israel did not do that. Arriving after forty years of living like beggars, they deeply envied the seven tribes of Canaan; they envied their sheep, their houses and their way of life. After all, they had been living in tents. By adopting the customs of the Canaanites, they betrayed their nation, and they also betrayed God. (1988.4.6. Hannam-dong House)
2) Be Bold And Strong
Until now the foundation for salvation has only been on an individual level; but now there is a different foundation. Now you are on the level where you can unite with your family, and your whole tribe can represent the Kingdom of Heaven. You are on the family foundation, so have great confidence. In order to elevate your tribe, you have to be bold and strong. (1988.12.20. East Garden)
When you return to your hometown, there is no enemy like the Native Americans. When you return to your hometown, there is nobody like the Indians to attack you. The reality that your hometown will welcome you is a very surprising fact. Everyone will shed tears and clap their hands when you sincerely report the reality of how hard Reverend Moon has worked in this country, with sacrifice and effort that cannot even be adequately described with words, and explain that he is a righteous man whose stature is rising throughout the world. Moreover, when you explain about all the work you have done, as well, they will tearfully say that you did a good job.
When you return to your hometown, try lecturing in schools or colleges where there are students around the age of twenty. Everything will turn around suddenly. People who are close to the age of twenty are on your side.
Those older than twenty are like your elder brother, and those below twenty are like your younger brother. They will naturally unite with you. Those people who are slightly younger or older than twenty should respond to you. If there is a problem, they will follow you.
Since that kind of environment awaits you, where will you go? Will you just stay here or will you go away to your hometown? [Go to hometown.] This is the only way to become their true ancestor. This is an incredibly tremendous truth. Unification Church members are entering that stage all over the world.
Moreover, since you are blessed families, Satan cannot accuse you. Thus you must be bold and strong. If there is a confrontation, they will break down and have to yield. We will not break. Now, according to the Principle, Satan has no condition by which he can accuse you. In the viewpoint of Divine Principle, they have to receive your advance. They have to retreat.
Until now you have witnessed to ministers, political leaders and others, it should be no problem for you to make unity in your hometown, right? (1988.6.15. East Garden)
Now North Korea and Soviet Union are both in a state of saturation. They want to do things as they like, but because Reverend Moon intervened, so they cannot. Do you understand? According to the Divine Principle standard, I have already established a foundation through the victory of Parents' heart centering on true love. This has created a foundation on the worldwide level that is free from the realm of Satan. Therefore, if they invade that, the satanic world will utterly crumble. Now we have entered an age when they cannot hit the Unification Church. Have confidence. Be bold and strong. When the Israelites were entering Canaan, Joshua commanded the descendants, who were in a miserable situation after having had to roam around and beg for forty years, to be bold and strong. Those descendants who received that command entered the land of Canaan like beggars. Since they endured forty years of wilderness life, they were the most humble of all beggars and did not even possess a penny. Their situation was one of no-man's land. They probably entered with caps of sand on their heads. Their situation was a painful contrast to that of the Canaanites, who had sheep, houses and were all living comfortably.
Even so, they should not have been dazzled by that. Their mothers and fathers should have counseled them saying, "This land is not where you are supposed to live. You still have the responsibility to march into God's kingdom, going over this land and always toward a higher world." (1985.5.17. Pusan Church)
3) Have Strong Conviction
If you go with strong conviction, your ancestors will push down and pressure them so that if your mother or any relative does not support you, they will not be able to open their mouth. It is like saying, "listen to me." Why does this happen? You are standing on the foundation of Parents who are connected to the national standard. You are able to be connected to Parents centering on the original, tribal foundation of goodness, and on the foundation of driving Satan out on the worldwide level. Thus Satan will withdraw, and all your ancestors in the archangelic-type spiritual world will support you. (1989.3.19. World Mission Center)
4) Do Three Times More Activity
This time I returned to Korea and chased everybody out to his hometown. I dispatched everyone to his or her hometown. I told them to return to their hometown to do five times, three times more activity than what they did in the outside world or in a foreign country. If that happens, everything will suddenly turn around.
Become a high priest, Then, following my orders, plant a new heart. If that happens, Satan cannot interfere. If you go with that kind of determination, your situation will be the same as the situation of Adam and Eve before the fall. The archangel, your ancestors, will all come and cheer.
One iron rule that you must know is that you have to do more than any loyal servant, filial son or church minister have done who were born in that region. If you do more than them they will all support you, That is the condition. If you do that, you will be standing in the place which is above the realm that Satan can accuse. Therefore, Satan will not oppose you and, with the support of the spiritual world, your ancestors will appear to their descendants and spiritually help them to join the Unification Church. All of them will witness to your clan. (1988.6.15. East Garden)
When you go to your hometown, you must become the best among all the farmers if you work on a farm, or the best among all students if you go to school. (1988.5.11. Chungjoo Church)
Love your hometown. Even Ph.D.s are returning to their hometown, which they did not think about until now. You must love the mountains and streams of your hometown. You must love its nature. You must love the land with a passion greater than the feeling with which your grandfathers and grandmothers tilled the soil while shedding their blood and sweat. This is the path that Reverend Moon took.
Dr. Lee, did you ever pick weeds out of a field while you were busy going to school? Now you have to go back and shed more sweat holding a hoe than your ancestors did, while you are thinking about how they shed sweat. Try digging furrows, cutting fodder and feeding cows. You have to do more than what your ancestors did, but I am not telling you to do it forever. You have to at least set a condition. By doing that, your ancestors in the spiritual world can come down and help you. Do you understand? Spirits who lived and died in that village will come to the land where they lived, find people they can connect with and come down to those people and receive benefit. A person who does not know how to manage his household cannot save a nation. There is a saying that a person with moral training who can manage a household can govern a nation or world effectively, right? That is true.
I myself did not manage my household. The fighting until now was between the brothers Cain and Abel. By returning home you must serve God, find the right of the elder son and the right of the second son, and unite North and South. So, I, Reverend Moon, still have the responsibility to unite with my ancestors in the name of True Parents and offer this country to God. (1988.4.6. Hannam-dong House)
5) Love Your Tribe And Love The Earth
After returning to your hometown, the husband and wife should not fight. You should not fight even if you starve, or when you receive abusive language, and even when you cry, you should not cry for yourself. You have to cry for your clan. You must determine yourself that you will do what your parents in hometown, your ancestors did not do, which was tilling this land while attending Heaven and shedding tears. You can be a person who is like a parent, an owner who loves the land and its citizens. You can be a person who can protect the homeland and who can love your hometown in place of me. By your doing that, the Kingdom of Heaven will come to the land of Korea. Do you understand? Do not think lightly about this
Those who will go to your hometown, raise your hands. Can there be anyone who does not want to go? I have to strike the arm of that kind of person. If the 38th Parallel opens up, I would be the first to go to my hometown....
Since there is no persecution, as you do your tribal messiah work when you return home, everything will come under your influence if you just speak. (1989.1.1. Headquarters Church)
From now on, from the time I said, "Go back to hometown. Return home," should I love the sons and daughters of the Moon clan more than you? Or should I love you more than the people in the Moon clan? [You must love the children of the Moon clan more.] Now is the time to sacrifice the realm of Abel and restore Cain, just as Father taught. Since we have entered the period of conversion, the period of Abel's restoring the right of the first son, everybody has to return to hometown.
Since this is so, you should return to your hometown. When Unification Church members return home, you must love your tribe more than the Unification Church members of the world. By loving your relatives more than you love Unification Church members, you can become king of your clan. In other words, become a tribal messiah. Only by laying the foundation of tribal messiah can you establish a foundation for a racial messiah to come. (1988.8.28. Hannam-dong House)
Now when you return to your hometown, look at the mountains and fields of your hometown again and think, "This is God's offering that He gave me." Looking at grandfather trees that are older than you, the stones in the river that are older than you, and the gardens, you should be able to say, "How are you?" That is love.
You have to know how to love nature in order to love people. This is restoration. Because Adam did not love all things, you must love all things. When you return to your hometown, you must love the nature of the area. You must love everything from the grasses in your village to the natural landscape around it. When you are finished with that, then love people. You can love people from the position of first loving all of the plants and animals. You are supposed to love people after restoring all things.
No matter what high position a person has or how much he owns, this is the law. Even if a person is a criminal, you must love him more than you love nature. This is the ethic of Heaven.
Why cannot God strike an evil person? Even that person can dominate the universe and all things. God would have to strike the universe before striking a person, not strike the person first. Since God knows this natural law, He has to endure and persevere. Therefore, you must love all things, and then love people.
When you love people, you must love starting with the most miserable people, miserable children, and go up to those who are more fortunate. Many people who are poor in this world are very good and conscientious. We Unification Church families should love the poorest people in the world. Even if they are now in the world of the devil, from among poor people emerge those who can inherit God's heavenly destiny. (1988.4.6. Hannam-dong House)
This year I created the slogan, "Unification of Korea." This year, in this historical age, I will live a life of greater hardship than anybody else, and will return to my hometown after having traveled all over the world throughout my whole life. That is this year's slogan. How can we achieve the unification of Korea? I will stand in the forefront and take a path which has more hardships than that traveled by anyone else.
Our Mother here will do that. Mother can stay home if she does not want to follow. Now is the time she can do that. Why? Because I told everybody to become a tribal messiah and go to their hometown. Since I am now speaking about the fulfillment of tribal messiahship, that is possible.
Mother does not know why that is the case. Before this time I would tell her she must come with me, but from now on I can go around by myself. Why is that the case? I am a person, who more than anybody else in Korea, wants to stand in the most difficult position centering on God. Yesterday I traveled for more than twelve hours, even until after 11 p.m. It is utterly exhausting. While visiting regions, I should love all things, right? Then I have to love people. What should I love after that? I should love God. But a fallen person cannot love God without returning to the state of an original man. (1989.2.5. Headquarters Church)
6) Tolerate Any Church
Telling the second generation to restore their hometown was among my directions this time. You should bundle them up and return to your hometown. This means you have to take the second generation, who can represent the ideology of home church that the Unification Church teaches, and return to your hometown. If one person brings ten or twenty young people and does whatever is needed in that village, even dying if they are told to die, the village people will not be able to oppose them, or their mother and father. Now the world is being pulled more and more into an environment in which it cannot oppose Reverend Moon. People will say, "Great." Things will turn around instantly. Go back to your birthplace and do not slander or oppose them. We have to enter existing churches and instill God's ideology there. (1988.4.6. Hannam-dong House)
5. Things To Do At Hometown
1) Hold A Feast
Last Thanksgiving, didn't I give you money to hold feasts? [Yes.] You must have had a lot of rice cake (ddeok). You should say, "This time I will sponsor a feast." If someone says that since he is thankful to Reverend Moon for having given the money before, he now wants to give money for the feast, even if he incurs a debt, he will be celebrated at a national feast.
Do you think a time for a national feast will come or not? [It will come.] When South and North Korea are reunited, should we hold a feast or not? [We should.] How many thousands of cows do we have to cook? [About thirty thousand.] Each family should cook one cow. Wouldn't they do this when such a historic day comes? When people made a sacrifice in the Old Testament Age, they always cooked at least one cow. If I pray that Satan cannot take away those who ate the meat and drank its broth at that time, then Satan cannot drag them away.
Last year I gave as much as 2.2 billion won for rice cake. That amount of money disappeared. It was for feasts. I think the whole nation must have eaten the rice cakes from the Unification Church! If the whole nation has forty million people, how much did each receive? Calculate. Fifty won. How many rice cakes do you get for fifty won? One? Half? [It is a hundred won for two rice cakes.] If you get two for a hundred, you can have one for fifty; so the forty million people got one rice cake each. Would they have spit on us after eating or would they say, "Oh, it is delicious. I want one more"? They must have said, "Why just one? They should give three," Now that I have given one, you must give the remaining two. That is how we establish the number three. The number three is the number of perfection, isn't it? So will you do it or not? [We will do it.] Will you pay the rice cake money or not? [We will.]
Since I did it, those who returned to their hometown should offer a feast to celebrate their glorious return, shouldn't they? I offered a feast. Religions teach the importance of fasting, serving and sacrificing. Now that kind of age is gone. In the Unification Church we did a lot of fasting and prayer vigils. Now, when you go home, you should hold a feast in order to save your kin and clan, even if you have to sell your house to pay for it. It is okay to sell off everything, right? In the future, the world will feed you. Since Reverend Moon is working hard for the world, the time will come when all nations will pay tribute to me.
That is why the Tong-A Ilbo [newspaper] is afraid now. Isn't it afraid of the Segye Ilbo? [Yes.] All the political parties are afraid. They shiver with fear. Will you be happy seeing this sight? [Yes.] They should not fall and die from shivering. We must catch them when they fall. We must feed them when they have not eaten. Why are they shivering? At that point you say, "Do not shiver; just bring your father and ancestors. You will be saved if you eat and dance joyfully at my banquet. Will you do that?" If they say yes, that is the restoration of the tribe. (1989.2.5. Headquarters Church)
2) Hold A Welcome Ceremony On The Family Level
The Unification Church is a frightening organization. What does it frighten? The devil, sin and evil. That is the only way that hope can come. The conclusion is simple. At this time of transition I proclaimed to the nation a welcoming ceremony for the True Parents. You must go back to hometown. You must return gloriously. These days Korea welcomes me, doesn't it? [Yes.] You must be welcomed by your tribe, then Korea will turn around. May you become heavenly princes and princesses who serve! [Amen.] May you become royal couples who can do all these things! [Amen.] (1990.5.20. Headquarters Church)
Now, in order for Korea to change its direction at this time of transition, it must be centered on the True Parents. The root must be different. The time has now come when we must eliminate the root planted in the fallen history of selfishness and turn everything around by planting a root in the history of serving the whole. As we have proclaimed this through the welcoming ceremony for True Parents, we must also hold welcome ceremonies for the True Children and True Family. Your tribes must do that. So far the whole of the Unification Church and the nation have done this, but now you must go back to your own tribes and, finally, hold a welcome party centering on the true clan and tribe in which you celebrate the salvation of your ancestors. That is the proclamation of a tribal messiah. Then a heavenly country will naturally come into being. You do not have to think about other countries. There is only Korea. When it expands, there will be no problem no matter what part of the world we go to or what people we meet. Different cultures are not a problem. As all unite with one essential standard, the unified world of true love comes into being in which everything is harmonized and all things can be handled. For this job, along with the True Parents' welcoming party proclamation, you must also proclaim for yourself a welcome ceremony for the tribe. You have the responsibility to do that. (1990.5.20. Headquarters Church)
3) Follow Father's Tradition And Establish His Tradition
What can I do from now? You cannot complain even if I live happily with my family. Inherit the tradition I established. Until now, for the sake of restoration, Cain and Abel separated and so did the mother and father, but now one family moves and stays together even when you go witnessing. The time has come when one family can work together, even starving and getting cursed together. Then what is your hope? If families have wishes to ask me, what would they be? They will ask, "Oh! God and Parents, give me the land where we can go and receive blessing." Where should they go? Everybody said, "Let us go to our hometown." You must go to your hometown as a messiah centering on your family. You must know that you must go as a messiah centering on your family, as messiah centering on family.
What do you do in your hometown? You must make them become one with you. The method is simple. The son goes out as a teacher of heavenly tradition and shows an example of how to create the Kingdom of Heaven. The mother and father show the village parents how to create a heavenly village, then it will work. It is simple. Create a loving family, in which the husband loves the wife and the wife loves the husband and the parents love the children and the children love the parents, and bequeath it all to them; then it will be done. (1985.8.20. Belvedere)
From now on, do not complain and do not think of your sons and daughters. I deserted everything. You also must make a new determination, and take it deeply within your heart that in order to carry on my tradition, you must tread the path that I have gone. I have gone through all the historical indemnity necessary to become a parent, the heavenly parent, the true parent.
I have done this in order to stand in the position of the worldwide ancestor. But you must go this way in order to inherit the tradition to become a tribal ancestor, a tradition specific to your individual areas. You must establish the tradition for the sake of your tribe. From now on, the twelve tribes will be organized. So we need a tradition. Those who only think about themselves will be left out. (1984.4.1. America)
I pray that they all go back to their hometowns, fill up the land with loving tears by planting God and True Parents' tradition, and make conditions such that they offer a repentance by the sacrifice of their blood in enduring hardship and establish a heavenly foundation where there is forgiveness. I pray all this in the name of True Parents. Amen. (1988.5.11. Chung Ju Church)
4) Plant A Shimjung Realm
You must go back to hometown and create a realm of True Parents' shimjung. That is why I am assigning all of you to go to your hometown. Everyone is going back to hometown, right? Have you heard of going back? [Yes.] The shimjung realm of your hometown in South Korea should be on the same plane with the standard of shimjung I established through paying indemnity on the worldwide level. Where do we plant the original shimjung? In the hometown. (1988.5.15. Headquarters Church)
We must plant a true shimjung in hometown, Failing to plant it is the fall. You must become the head family of your clan.
5) Restoration Of The Tribe
A. Salvation of the Tribe
You must go back to your hometown before I do. In the process of restoration, parents do not go first. Abel must be restored first. If the Unification Church is Abel, the established churches and the people are Cain. They must be united and go back to hometown, What do you do in your hometown? You as an Abel must completely embrace the realm of Cain. As you all return to hometown, your hometown return is different from Adam and Eve's fall. The Parents achieved a total victory and restoration by overcoming all of Satan's persecution on the individual, family, tribe, racial and national levels, and by making indemnity conditions on the worldwide level. After this I have returned to you so that you can inherit it from me.
If you return home with this, you are not a wanderer. You have been a wanderer so far, moving with the wind. But now you will plant an unmovable frame of true love in the land where God can come. In whose name? [In God's name.] In the name of God, who is the vertical parent, and of the True Parents, who are the horizontal parents. As a result, our nation and our tribe will not perish. The seeds planted through the parents' victorious foundation cannot be touched by the devil. So you return to your hometown in order to save your tribes. The persecution and opposition will all disappear. The time has come when the intellectuals will perceive that opposing Reverend Moon only does harm to the country and the world. Thus we must return to our hometowns and work. (1988.5.20. Taegu Church)
Now the time has come. Do not go anywhere, but to your tribe. I have sent you so that you can become tribal messiahs. Centering on your own tribe, restore the Cain tribe. We must restore our tribes. It is the same as the effort to unite the northern and southern parts of Israel through Elijah. Through miracles Elijah eliminated all the prophets of Ashra and Baal, 850 in number. Then he thought that the people would serve the living God, but instead they tried to kill him, so he ran away. In despair he asked God to take his life, at which time God said that there were 7000 people who did not yet worship Baal. That meant there was the possibility for the two Israels to unite with Elijah.
If Korea is like the southern dynasty, all the people in the world are the northern dynasty. If 7000 people had been united, would Jesus have had to die? The restoration of the tribe did not take place. The families of Joseph and Zachariah did not unite. That is why Jesus died. The central figure can stand victorious only when Cain and Abel unite. Adam and Eve are saved through Abel. Only when Abel fulfills his responsibility, subjugates Cain and totally unites with him, can the parents appear. Otherwise God's will cannot advance.
Individually, you can come before God only when your mind subjugates your body and creates a man who is united in mind and body. It is the same with the family. You can go to God only when you totally unite with your wife. Your whole family can go to God only when you unite with your children. The whole can go to God only when the tribe unites centering on this family. Then you go to the realm of the nation. This is the path to find God. (1989.1.27. Hannam-dong House)
B. Method of Tribal Restoration
What did Jesus have to do on earth? He had to establish tribal messiahs. But since he died without accomplishing this, he automatically lost the level of the national messiah. So I am sending you across Korea with the mission of tribal messiah who can represent the twelve tribes.
However, you are not yet at the perfection level of the growth stage. You are marching to the satanic world centering on the connection of shimjung in which you serve God at the perfection level of the perfection stage. Thus, if you have faith and if husband and wife unite, everyone will be easily won over, including the father-in-law. You must have such a faith. You must bear the responsibility of Abel. You must fulfill the mission of the family level Abel.
Of course, you must give the offering according to God's will, but also Abel himself needs a strategy to subjugate Cain. For this purpose, what if Abel says to Cain, "Older brother, I am sorry that Father only loves me"? Wouldn't it make a good condition if Abel says, "I am sorry that God receives only my offering"? Standing in this position, centering on the family level Abel's standard of Heaven, before you brag about the right of Abel, you must use a similar strategy to subjugate the Cain families. You must use strategy.
Here, though God is the Abel of the universe and mankind is Cain before God, God has gone through the history of restoration with the body of a servant of servant, of an adopted son and of a child. You must inherit this tradition and go to your tribes, reactivate the tradition and subjugate them. This will not take long. The longest it should take would be three years. So we estimate ten years. (1968.3.3. Tae Jun Church)
You are Abel. If your family, in the position of Abel, unites your tribe, Mother and I can come. Since Parents are one and victorious, all is fulfilled if Cain and Abel unite centering on this. That is why I am returning you home as tribal messiahs. You must be as one when you are back home. Only through this will the desires of Jesus and the Second Coming be fulfilled. This is also the hope of the age of the Second Coming. Thus, the failures of Jesus will count as having been indemnified in this age of the Second coming. This way you can go anywhere the Parents go.
Where should you go? [To the place of our birth.] You must restore the Cain relatives. Blessed families stand in the position of Abel. Abel families must save the Cain families. By Cain family, I mean the nearby tribes. Thus, by uniting the entire tribe, you can automatically be connected to my victories on the national, worldwide and cosmic levels. You must make your tribe one. This is the last mission. (1989.3.19. World Mission Center)
What do you have to do? What is your first task? It is important to go out witnessing, but also you must save families. You must save your tribe. The nation is connected from above, and now is the time to save your tribe. Now is the time when you can unite your tribe at once even without effort. Work three times as hard as you did outside. Parents will quickly turn around with that effort. We must use things in your culture. If you make something like a movie and show it to your parents, they will say, "Oh, I did not know," and turn around. You must be responsible for your parents and family.
Where do Cain and Abel go after they are restored? They must restore the parents. The Principle is that you restore the outside Cain and Abel and then your own brothers and sisters. Thus, if externally our foundation can connect with the nation now, then you are responsible to restore your own brothers and sisters and parents internally. From now on, you must concentrate on this. That is my point, understand? [Yes.]
That is why you should serve your parents. You must serve your parents, be an example to your neighbors and become a child your parents like. You have been lecturing outside, but now you should lecture at home. If that does not work, you should ask someone in an Abel position to you to sacrifice for your family; instead of sacrificing for you, he sacrifices for your family. If you work on your family in this mutual relationship, a lot will be restored. Those whose parents are not restored, raise your hands. They all must be restored. (1974.4.29. Chung Ang Training Center)
C. Tribe Revival
From now on, we must do a revival for families. This will be a family revival representing the world. Your family revival involves your tribe, but it also represents all tribes. You must all think that way. You must think that not just in Korea, but also in the world many blessed families are connected to their own tribes, and your revival represents all these tribes. This way everyone in the world can participate in the revival. Today, since Korea became the basis of the Korean Unification Church, we can do a revival with our tribes representing the world. This is such a blessing.
For this revival festival you can cook a cow. It is up to you. If you want to cook a chicken, cook a chicken and you will be blessed that much. If you cook one hundred cows, you will be blessed that much. Everything will be determined by a serving heart and by how much effort you make. In proportion to this, your ancestors will be liberated. (1989.1.3. Hannam-dong House)
Now the reunification of Korea is possible. If you go to your hometown now and do a tribal revival, it will become a historic revival. This event is more remarkable than the March 1st Independence Movement. The circumstances have become such that the progress of God's way is welcome. If you cannot move your tribe even in such a circumstance, you must die. (1989.2.5. Hannam-dong House)
Evil spirits gave medicine and then disease, Now good spirits do not give medicine and disease, they give medicine and send them to heaven. Our (good) ancestors gave medicine and let them live. Satan gave medicine and took them to the hell, but we give medicine and send them to heaven. In order to send them to heaven, your ancestors sometimes hit and give medicine. They say, "You rascal, why aren't you going? If you do not go, you will get sick." Wait and see. Your ancestors will do that. These things will happen, so they will not be able to help going. Even the governor of a state, in his arrogance, will be grasped by the neck by his ancestors and be told to go and bow in front of the Unification Church. Among these ancestors, if any of them committed a sin and became an enemy, he must indemnify his sin. Thus he must send his representative and beg for forgiveness. That is why these things happen.
So far Satan gave disease and medicine. He dragged them to hell this way. No one likes medicine, right? Medicine is a beating stick and suffering. Should you do a revival or not? [We should.] 'Truly, you must become a messiah. Then, if you just pray, you will appear with the right of messiah. So far we have kept talking about tribal messiah, right? Now you must do the work of the messiah, so you must do the revival. (1989.1.3. Hannam-dong House)
Why did I tell you to gather here? You must do a tribal revival, offering your life. In the future, the district leaders should be able to give a workshop, though they may not have it now. If you go back to your hometown now there is little you can do to earn a living. You must earn a living by the Divine Principle. If you simply teach them the Principle, they will say, "We will provide for your family." Who would let a priest starve? It must happen that way. (1989.2.5. Hannam-dong House)
6) Tong Ban Outreach
What is our purpose? Tong Ban outreach, which we have been doing so far. Tong Ban outreach is our purpose. In your hometown, we can never tolerate Satan invading the Tong and Ban centered on your tribe. You must eliminate the root. Eliminate the weeds. (1988.6.1. Headquarters Church)
In the tribe, there are families. In the nation, there are many tribes and a nation is formed through a connection of tribes. The country can do nothing without following the Unification Church.
If we set up the tribal foundation, the nation will automatically be formed. Tribal and Tong Ban outreach are related. Tong Ban outreach occurs within the realm of the tribe. A village or Tong Ban are all within the realm of tribe, aren't they? That is why I used the term "Tong Ban outreach." If you become a tribal messiah, is Tong Ban outreach completed or not? It is completed. (1989.2.5. Headquarters Church)
7) Building A Church
I wanted to buy 1500 churches across the country. How many are there now? [530.] We have established 530 bases. From now on, you must pray in these bases instead of at the holy grounds, okay? You know that though there have been so many religions, including Christianity, there was no religion that could serve the heavenly parents and plant the root of heavenly shimjung. You must set conditions to make churches in which a new root of shimjung can be planted.
Now is the time when the spiritual world can help us. You must organize your hometown and become the chief. Become the chief, establish a holy place and altar and, in this place of God, set up an altar of atonement. You must establish a church. Your hometown has experienced great sorrow throughout the fallen history! Just as the Israelites returned from Babylon after hundreds of years and restored the temple and served God, you must return and build a church. As for the myun level church, I do not build it. You must build it with your relatives. In order for your tribe, which is Cain, to be restored through indemnity, they must build a local church centered on you as the head and priest. Your close relatives must build it. You do not build it yourself. For the sake of God, you build a church and then a school, then you build your house.
If you have a house, sell it, if it is necessary, to pay for building a church and a school. Why? The second generation of Israelites restored Canaan. The second generation in the world now is on our side. You must establish an educational foundation that can make the second generation more loyal than you and pray, "The foundation of the present and future where You can operate will expand from here."
What do you have to build first? A temple to serve God. Next? For your sons and daughters, you must build a school where you become a tribal messiah teacher and show them your example of how you love God and mankind as their textbook. It is the same for me. I worked to make churches and schools, but the Korean government. gave no approval for schools. We built Sung Hwa University, right? One building cost enough money to build more than twelve ordinary buildings. It is a building to remain for a thousand years of history. Did I build the house for my own children or yours? Yours. You must make a donation and build the school. Have you made a donation? When I talk about building a church, you think I will do everything. This kind of thinking will lead you to disaster. If you cannot do it, I will have the Japanese members do it. Do you understand? If you fail your responsibility in your hometown, I will have the Japanese members do it, even by selling their blood. In the future, the husband or wife must go to the hometown church and live. You must invest blood and sweat to build a church.
Centering on these tasks and churches, you must make a prayer place. You should pray in the church, but if you cannot find a place to pray, you must make a place through selling your land and through a meeting of your relatives. You must make a place of prayer yourself. You must know this.
Next, if there is a rich person among your relatives, his house must become the church. You must even take down all the good houses and give to the church. In order to be an ancestor, you must make a church and then a school. You must pioneer a new history in order to keep the tradition. Each clan has its own tradition, right? Without this, forget about everything else. We must make an ideal blessed land where Heaven is served as Parents are served, and the clan can be settled eternally. If you set up a foundation of tribal messiah, your tribe must pay a tribute to the country. That time will come. Didn't you earn money and spend it on your own? From now on, everyone must pay thirty percent of what they make. How much do I give? (One hundred percent.] Not one hundred, but two hundred percent. I have done this all my life, even incurring debt.
God does not accuse you if you are indebted because of the providence of restoration, Those who are indebted for the sake of the God will be blessed. Understand? You will be protected. If you have money, you think of a bank account and your children's tuition, don't you? I think of the world, if I have money. That is why God protects me. Understand? That is the way to get a blessing. How much percent do I give? [Two hundred.] Two hundred? It is actually a few thousand. Even when I have money, I try to skip lunch or dinner, even though I am hungry. That is why a leader should not be indebted. I am not indebted to the Unification Church members, and nor to Korea or America or Germany. All the countries I have dealt with are indebted to me. Those to whom others are indebted never perish. Since you gave sincerely, you must reap sincerely. That means that you will get a tribute. The reason why the Japanese come to me and give me their life is that in the time of the Japanese occupation I secretly let the enemies go, though they would have been killed with just one word from me. Americans are like this now, and Koreans, too. You must know clearly. So how much will you give? Ten percent is for the church, another ten for the country, and another ten for the world. You must pay tax. You must know that.
When I visit you, if a church member has a house that is bigger than the church, he will be blasted. People like that in our church cannot be blessed, understand? They cannot belong to the family of Heaven. With this understanding, you must go back to your hometown and establish the 1500 holy places that I have determined. Didn't the Pilgrim Fathers build churches and schools better than the European ones, and then build their own houses? You must do likewise. After this, you must do more than establish an independent country. By all means you must distribute my plan. By distributing the design and making effort, our tribe and nation can have the best church. Shouldn't we have this? That is the only way to receive the blessing. I proclaim this today, and carry it out exactly. (1988.6.15. East Garden; 1988.7.22. Hannam-dong House; 1989.2.5. Hannam-dong House; 1989.2.5. Headquarters Church)
8) Establishing A Lighthouse
When you go back to hometown, establish a lighthouse, okay? What is a lighthouse? At night, it gives light in the dark. What is it for? It is for the unification of north and south and east and west. From now on, you must light it up so that the light in the holy place does not go out.
6. Tribal Messiah And The Relationship Of Ancestors
1) The Original Ancestors -- True Parents
The world thought lightly of the Unification Church, didn't it? It thought that we would be extinguished and float away on our own. But that is not right. No one can solve the problem of the country. It is full of problems, and its fortune is declining. What is the original standard that will restore this? It is the ideology of the True Parents.
Adam and Eve had to become true parents on the family and tribal level, right? Historically, True Parents are ancestors. When a country is formed, who are the ancestors of the country? True Parents. Who are the ancestors of a family? True Parents. Who are the ancestors of the world? True Parents. (1990.5.25. Hannam-dong House)
2) Attitude Before True Parents
You must liberate your tribe. For your ancestors, go to their graves and pledge that you will give your life. You must start with the following declaration: "Our ancestors, I will be responsible for your errors. If there are people in opposition, I will get hit instead. I came to liberate you so that when I stand in front of God, you can help me without Satan's accusation." Centering on this, your ancestors from different generations should support you, just as I am supported. This way our nation can participate in the realm of Israel. This way you can go into the Kingdom of Heaven, a land of liberation. This is your responsibility. (1988.1.23. Ex-headquarters Church)
What will you do in hometown? First of all, you must take care of the graves. The Korean custom is to serve the ancestors. You can erect a gravestone, plant trees and make it your ancestors' favorite garden. Clean up the village and make it a place which everybody can praise. How would you feel? Make a bathroom in such a way that even a fly comes and runs away. If you do so, would you become the head of the village or not? The "head" is a bad word, but now it means being a king of good works. Only if you become an ancestor this way, will there be no trouble later. (1991.8.29. International Training Center)
Has there been a person who really loved his village? You know your village and each house, don't you? You know to whom a certain field of crops belongs, but you loved only your own fields. Is there someone who really loved his entire village? You only loved your own house? Is there someone who loved the village and the myun? No. Only God. That is why all things followed God as the master. There has been no master who could love the village, but because of Reverend Moon, these masters can rise. Who are they? They are the ones who are assigned to the mission today. You must live so that you are not ashamed before your ancestors. You must love the country more than your ancestors did. Love is such that if you give one hundred percent, 120 percent returns. True love never dissipates the more it is practiced. It moves history. (1988.7.22. Hannam-dong House)
3) Ancestors Are In The Position Of The Archangel
You go back to your hometown, and plant God's true shimjung of love and the original shimjung. Who then becomes the ancestor? You become an ancestor centering on God. Then the realm of ancestors centering on the heart begins to spread on earth at a level that transcends the nation. The time has come when a garden of shimjung can blossom in Korea. You must restore the fall centering on your family. So you must unite with God, and husband, wife and children must totally unite to form a four position foundation; then you can rule as an ancestor. Thus, centering on you, your ancestors are in the position of the archangel, and thus they are waiting for you to come to your hometown. (1988.5.15. Headquarters Church)
Your ancestors will all follow you. Your ancestors are in the position of the archangel, understand? The road of restoration is that of re-creation. According to the principle of creation, the angel was created first and then Adam and Eve. Hence, your ancestors, who went before you, are in the position of the archangel. You are in the position of Adam and Eve. Who protects them until they get old and married? The servants, not God, are supposed to take care of Adam and Eve. When the servants, namely, the angels, raise them and they get married, there opens a new area in which the servants are also blessed. Thus, the good spirits wait for the true Adam and Eve's appearance, upon which they return to the earth and welcome your steps toward returning home and saving the country. (1988.6.4. Hannam-dong House)
4) Support Of The Ancestors
If you return home with a determination to overcome indemnity and plant a seed of goodness, your ancestors must all support you and tell even the remotest relatives to welcome you with a big feast. Has it happened or not? I am worried because it did not happen. In the past, as I was following this course, a woman served me with rice and rice cake when I got hungry. The previous night her ancestor had appeared in her dream and had told her, "A precious guest will pass by a certain place, and you will encounter a disaster unless you do what I say. He is the top secret agent of Heaven. If you mess with this, your whole tribe will be wiped out. Take out all your possessions and make your best effort to serve him." Naturally, if your heartistic foundation coincides with mine, the spiritual world, which has served me, will also support you. It is not happening yet because you are still lacking in this foundation. (1988.10.3. Ilhwa Yongin Factory)
Your ancestors want to support their good descendants and want to come down. Many ancestors will come down around you. This is a world of religion centering on a tribe, transcending religious denominations. Your ancestors trust and love you, and want to follow you. Everything will follow you and want to be devoted to supporting you.
The Messiah is absolutely the central concept. Once an order is given, this is final. You cannot hedge and discuss it and say this and that about it. Once an order is given, it is all over. You must follow this. Such a center is the Messiah. So, standing in God's position, I send out the blessed families as tribal messiahs. So far God has not had such a family. Families could not have such a realm of love. Now the time is different. True Parents are on earth as such a family. God has sent the Messiah here. Now horizontally, you stand all over the world. I sent you out. This is what could have happened at the time of Jesus if the Cain and Abel tribes had become one and received the blessing. (1989.5.1. World Mission Center)
Now your ancestors will support you. In the past, evil ancestors used their descendants, but now is the time when good ancestors come out and act. There has to be someone who is willing to bear the cross of the tribe, pay indemnity for the nation, bear the cross of the country and world, and pay indemnity for the country and world. In the realm of the worldwide blessing, if you bear a cross and fight, everything can be quickly resurrected because of you. Then, in the horizontal position, a foundation is laid to save the ancestors across generations. That is the only way your tribe is liberated. Now you must pray like this: "Though I do not receive any reward, please forgive my ancestors' wrong doings. Please forgive that they did all kinds of things, hesitating on the path or going in the wrong way. Though they hesitated, please now open the road of resurrection for those ancestors who can stand for God's will."
First, you must liberate your ancestors. You must know this. Then you must liberate your tribe. For this everyone is assigned to their hometowns, right? Assigning everyone to hometown is the first event after 6000 years of biblical history. In the history of restoration, in which Cain must be saved first, there is no logic for saving the hometown. You are supposed to save it after you save Cain. You are being blessed because I paid indemnity for the worldwide Cain and came back. (1988.1.23. Ex-headquarters Church)
5) The Foundation Of Ancestors Is Hometown
We must show how to love your hometown in the right way. It is far from you to love the country and society, so go to your hometown. It starts from saving: "I did not know, but as I heard Reverend Moon, it makes sense with the great way of the universe." You must lay the foundation of heart; only then can ancestors come to their hometown and be restored through their descendants. How can ancestors come to Seoul and find Dr. Lee there? They are attached to their hometown. They only think about the hometown where Dr. Lee was raised. Your success is known only to you, but would your parents know? The restoration of hometown means the restoration of the spiritual world. With the support of the spiritual world, we should establish a foundation of tradition whereby our successors can advance. Heavenly fate works in this direction. I cannot do it blindly, but it must be done.
Love starts at my home. If I have received love from my parents, I must love them back. This is the heavenly way. The fundamental source of heart is the relationship of father and son. This is planted in the villages. Due to the fall, all this got overturned. This must be resolved on earth. You must go back to the village and become a better filial son and daughter than those who love their parents on Satan's side. Only then can good ancestors come down to earth. Spirits, who can move horizontally, then bring the name of the beloved one from their hometown and come to Seoul and support you. This way you expand your horizontal base. This is restoration. (1988.4.6. Hannam-dong House)
7. Hometown And Unification Of South And North
1 ) The Reason Why The North And South Separated
As soon as you go back, there is land which we wanted to buy to establish 1500 churches. Just as the Israelites came to the temple to resolve all their sorrows, you must cry as your nation's representative. Why is Korea so corrupt? Why did this nation become so pitiful, and why are South and North divided? It is because they did not serve God's will and lost it. As tribal messiahs, we must plant the tradition of the realm of heart in every place. You must cry with such right of ancestors. (1989.2.5. Headquarters Church)
2) What To Prepare Before The Unification Of South And North
Will the unification happen? It will happen, right? [Yes.] Will you bring unification or not? [We will.] For something to look feasible and for something to be ordered are not the same. So far you have done what seemed feasible, but now you must follow my words. I did everything according to the word. I kept all my promises and did all I foretold. You must also keep your promise, then Korea will automatically turn around. The unification of Korea -- we will achieve this long cherished goal.
Centering on the unified country, if we achieve a Cain and Abel unity with China, the world will be automatically united. I have been making conditions for more than 35 years in order to achieve unity with communist China. At the 1981 International Conference on the Unity of the Sciences, I said that I would be on the front line of Asia by universalizing technology with China, and the chairpeople thought I was joking, but I achieved it in five years. Wasn't a change of system announced on December 7, 1984? When we announced that the Soviet Union would fall, we said to wait for five years. How many years have passed now? [Four years.] How much did they oppose us? They sighed and worried about me. It was not to be listened to. It happened in this way because we announced it.
You also must announce the unification of Korea. Do you know the right methods or not? [We know.] If I hear that you are building churches, I may visit you sometime. You thought that I would forget, didn't you? Instead, I have all the maps. To wish to achieve the unification of South and North without first building a temple of God is to be a thief. Only when local churches flourish, can the sixty million people of North and South Korea unite and prepare a place where God can be served.
We must show the tradition of effort through your example so that the surrounding people can say with a desperate heart, "They are amazing. God will be with them." When we establish the country you desire, we will make it a source for educating the sixty million people. Do not do it in a clumsy or lazy way. Work hard. (1989.1.3. Hannam-dong House)
3) If The Tribes Become One, The Unification Of South And North Korea Will Occur
Among those who have lived here, there must have been filial sons and royal ministers. You must inherit the tradition of True Parents better than those filial sons and royal ministers, return home and plant it there. How do you plant it? You must serve your parents better than any filial sons who have ever lived, and you must be more royal than any royal ministers who have ever lived. Unless such a realm of heart appears, it will not take root. Thus, my declaration of return to hometown is the first in the history of religion. Though millions of years have passed by, now that I have come and indemnified everything, you can return home and win the repentance of your parents and tribe. I have not been able to do it. Now I am trying to do it for the first time.
Previously, we had to abandon our hometown and country. We had to desert Korea and fight in America. Why? Because Abel can return home only when he subjugates Cain and restores the elder son's birthright. He returns home with the elder son's birthright gained through winning a battle with the free world. Only when you love God more than satanic love, can the elder and second son go to God's bosom. Where does it start from? From your hometowns and families.
Just as one becomes a part of the True Parent's body, horizontally inherits the tradition of parental love and expands it through the tribe, nation, country and world, we must go to forty million people with the same principle. So inheriting parental love on a vertical level, we plant it horizontally so that it takes root. Our responsibility upon returning to hometown is to plant it with tears and blood from the highest level of love. Because you know this, I will find a landing place in your hometowns after having wandered in the wilderness without fulfilling the will for seventy years. When a family is established and a tribe spreads, we can indemnify the tribal standards of the families of Zachariah and of Joseph, which were lost at the time of Jesus. Centering on that standard, you, instead of me, are connecting to the country and going to the age of the unification of South and North Korea. (1988.5.11. Chung Joo Church)
If you go back to your hometown and connect your ancestors and tribe, the South and North will be unified automatically. (1988.5.11. Headquarters Church)
If you go back to your hometown, your ancestors are supposed to help. With regard to your tribe, you are Abels, and your parents and relatives are Cains. You are in the realm where Cain, Abel, country and world become one. There is no one to object to it. Thus, standing on the foundation of restoring the elder son's birthright, forcefully teach your tribe truthful values in a subjective manner. We must become one, from grandfather to father, mother, to our most distant relatives. We must work with purpose. We must unify the South and North, and for this all tribes must be one. (1989.2.5. Hannam-dong House)
You must know what to do and where. From the tribal stage, you must go over the national stage. Since you are at the tribal restoration stage, I must become one with you on a national stage by connecting you with the truth. If we become one like this, the unification of South and North will automatically happen. We can digest China and the Soviet Union only when we become one like this. The conclusion is that we set up tribal messiahship. Where? In your hometowns in Korea. The idea of the Fatherland is vague, but assigning tribal messiahs is concrete. We assign a tribal messiah to the place where he was born. It is the return to hometown on a family level. There is an exact landing, and no more movement. (1989.1.3. Hannam-dong House)
4) Return To Hometown And The Unification Of South And North
The slogan of 1989 was "Unification of Korea." The Fatherland God desires is the Fatherland and hometown of mankind centered on true love! In other words, Korea is the Fatherland God desires and it is the Fatherland and hometown of mankind centered on true love! Korea must be the Fatherland and hometown of mankind, so Korea must be unified! So far mankind has not had a hometown and Fatherland! Korea must become that hometown and Fatherland! This means that Korea must become unified.
How is unification achieved? It is done through the principle of love and life. This is the principle of unification. First, with the individual centering on love, the body and mind become one. Centering on God, the mind and body of an individual become one.
Next is the unification of the internal and the external centering on the family! This is the unification of the internal and the external based on the relationship of the parents and children. It is the realm of unification based on one's family; one is to bring together one's family with other families centering on the parent child relationship. It is the internal and the external unification. By internal and the external unification, it is talking about one's family, the Abel position.
Moreover, next is the internal and external unity of the people. This is the same. After making the tribe one, it will become the Abel and bring many other tribes together. In order to make those tribes unified, one has to invest one's self for the restoration of the birthright of the oldest son. This principle is unchanging.
Next is the internal and external unification of the nation! South Korea and North Korea are different. For South Korea to stand in the internal position to unite externally, it has to walk the path similar to that of Cain and Abel. For this reason, South Korea must invest itself for the sake of North Korea. This is the reason that the president recently is repeatedly trying to give to North Korea, isn't this so? Because we have come upon such a time, he involuntarily has the desire to give.
However, one problem is that there is no way to protect or defend centering on this principle and rule. Because the path is not known, each person cannot ward off Satan from entering, so this has become a problem. For this reason, we have to quickly proceed on with education. You have to hurry up. In order to enter the native land and prevent Satan's invasion, all you have to do to bring it to a conclusion is to become a tribal messiah and live for the sake of the nation centering on the restoration of Cain and the foundation of tribe. We are dwelling in this era, the era of the internal and external unification of the nation.
If this unfolds all over, if in South Korea the tribal spheres can be unified on the world level completely centering on the Messiah, then this unified realm of love will go beyond the standard which has historically been dominated with Satan's love based on the national level. When this takes place, the nation will take on the form in which it will make an input for the sake of the world in the name of God. From that moment, Satan cannot raise the banner of opposition.
Up to now, Satan has been opposing religion centering on the national standard and by dividing into many nations. However, if we meet the standard of unity centering on the people now and on the national level in South Korea, then with this as the basis, when we enter North Korea, we will have already stepped over to the national standard. North Korea must become one automatically. (1989.1.3. Hannam-dong House)
Now, you have to go back to your hometown and play the role of owners. In your hometowns, you have to connect to me the individual, family, tribe, people, and all the way to the world. All you have to do is make the connection to the Republic of Korea. For the sake of the nation, you must mobilize the tribe and engraft them. All of you are to follow the path in which you can follow me. When you do that, the national standard will automatically be restored. You are not to claim the country of Adam and Eve through conflict. It is to emerge automatically when I send you to your hometown. (1988.10.15.)
What is the task of the Unification Church? The Korean people must accomplish the unification of the north and south, centering on the Unification Church. You must correctly teach the path that America must walk and the path that Russia must walk. In order to do that, you have to create the materials needed to teach the American people and materials with which you can teach the communist people, yet where would you gather those materials? They have to be made at the headquarters for the unification movement of the north and south of Korea.
This is the last fierce battlefield of the world. Because the pivotal point of the liberation of the world depends on this, the Korean people must not limit themselves to loving their own children, family and tribes, but also sacrifice for the sake of the south and north as a whole, as well as sacrifice for the sake of the world. Because such times have dawned upon us, you are to return to your hometown.
The unification of north and south will take place through the heads of boroughs and districts. It will begin to take place from the time you go back to your hometown and restore the four position foundation of mother and father. You must be able to engraft into the true love of God centering on your older brothers and sisters. Because they do not understand the true love of God, you must teach them. You have to become the educational resources. You have to teach them, "You must love the nation like this and love the world like that." You have to return to your hometowns and love in that manner. Unless you exert yourself, by shedding tears, sweat and blood, more than any patriot or filial son who has passed through that hometown land in history until now, even if God is present substantially He cannot guide you. This is the principle.
You must love Cain. In order for Adam to enter the kingdom of Heaven, he has to love Cain. Without loving the archangel, he cannot enter the kingdom of Heaven. Some people did not return hometown for ten, twenty or thirty years after leaving home. This has been the case with me. You should not return to hometown. You must return only after defeating Satan and take with you the blessings. Because I have laid the victorious foundation of indemnity on the world level, those among your ancestors who are in the spirit world on account of the merit of that blessing are on the national level. You must understand that because the national level is within the world level, they are waiting for you, who are to return to your ancestors, in the position of archangels which had been created first.
What do you have to do? You must love God more than Adam and Eve. As long as you do that, your ancestors will support you from a hundred directions so that all sorts of miracles will take place. From now on, if your relatives try to oppose you with their mouths, then their mouths will be glued together. Their tongues cannot be moved; such phenomena will take place. All sorts of miracles will take place.
In this way, within one year we must place a banner in the families of the Korean people and, centering on the love of God, implant the true roots in those families. In order for the blessed couples to implant the roots, you must establish the bond of heart so that all of your relatives can engraft themselves onto the tree whose roots have been implanted. As this unfolds in the land of the South Korea, the land of the North Korea will also be connected automatically, so that there will be enough light of liberation radiating from the south and sweeping the north. Until now, the realm of love and heart of the True Parents has been lost, but for the first time in history, through the love of True Parents, we have established the standard that can cover over the divided North and South Korea, as well as the whole world. That is this horizon. I have come in from the world in the opposite direction and returning again, I am standing here. After entering, I have paid the indemnity to chase Satan out. From now on, as long as I connect you to the development and recreate the family, tribe, people and nation centering on your families, the world will then come to a conclusion.
The day that liberation is brought upon the problem of Korea, the problem of east and west will naturally be liberated. The key to this is Korea. Do you understand? (Yes.) There is no other way to open it except with the realm of heart of True Parents love.
You should understand this and go back to your hometown, and love your homeland with more effort than that which you have expended during your work throughout the decades that you have been in the Unification Church. Even a handful of grasses in your hometown should have formed pairs and receive the original loving heart of the Parents millions of years ago, yet they could not receive it. If this relationship of love can be bestowed upon them through us, then the land and creations can become one with us and return back to God, and by belonging to the name of the True Parents they can proceed forward toward the world of unification.
When you become one and make the effort, new roots will be implanted in the families of the thirty million people, so that not only would the unification of the north and south, but also the beginning point for the unification of the east and west, as well as the unification of Heaven on earth and Heaven in Heaven will emerge. You should know that the blessed era which comes only once in history is dawning upon us, and without falling off during this era but participating in it, you should become the victors who can praise the triumph that moves forward. As the original hometown becomes restored centering on God, Satan will be eternally locked up in the prison where he cannot resist, and the banner of liberation will be perpetuated together with the nation of true love. (1988.5.9. Guang Ju Church)
Centering on September 27, 1988, we are to return to the ceremony of the transition into the world unification. Centering on the Gae-Chun-Jer (the day of the opening of Heaven), it is amazing how the number matches so well with the year 4321. As I was carrying it out, that day came out to be exactly right. We can freely proclaim before Heaven and earth the appearance of the unified nation of the world, the new kingdom of Heaven on earth. Why? It is because all the members of the Unification Church are returning to their hometown. I have already distributed all the things they need to live in their hometown.
The meaning of the hometown providence this time is entering here to build a house and rear sons and daughters to raise meritorious ministers of Heaven. In the history of world religions, the concept of returning to the hometown is unprecedented. When one believes in a high level religion, one is taught to leave home, but there is no concept of returning to the hometown. You have to understand that the directive to return to the hometown is the joyful news given for the first time in history. When you return, you are to serve the parents and return after inheriting the nation of the parents. Do you understand? (Yes.)
In the future, I am going to order the dissolution of the Unification Church. What does one do in the Unification Church? One is to go to one's hometown and seek the nation of the hometown. What do you do in a church when you have created the nation that is directly connected to the hometown, and the kingdom of Heaven that is directly connected with the hometown? Isn't this so? It is found within you.
You are the ones who are to tie up the earth and also the ones who are to untie the earth. Just as the Bible teaches that in the spirit world it will be loosed or unloosed, according to how it is loosed or unloosed on the earth, just like how the key to the door of Heaven is given to Peter, I have given to you not the key to the door of Heaven but the kingdom of Heaven itself. This is the instruction which tells you to return to your hometown and then by sowing seeds of love restore the tribe. (1988.10.14. Headquarters Church)
5) The Unification Of North And South Is The Beginning Point For The Unification Of The Earth And The Unification Of Heaven
If you go to your hometown and bring unity, then your tribe as well as the nation will be connected. When you can connect to the nation, then liberation is next. The world will automatically be linked together. Until now, restorational history has been conducted centering on nations. If the sovereignty of one nation is formed on the national level, then there is the formation of the patriotic citizens centering on the nation. The character of people who try to leave something behind for the sake of the ideals of God's love even if it entailed giving their life for the people more than any people of any nation in history, then the connection will automatically be made to the realm of unified world. (1988.8.22. Hannam-dong House)
We have to reclaim the nation. Now, I am sending you to your hometown, as the tribal messiah of the hometown. I have sent you in order to restore the standard that could not be establish by Jesus.
Although you have gone to your hometown, there is no nation. Who is supposed to pioneer the nation first? It is your job. Because True Parents have the responsibility to be one step ahead in the dispensation of restoration and make the progress, I have been making all the preparation for the north-south unification movement; you have to understand this. You must go to your hometown. By restoring your tribes completely... this will expand out to the worldwide domain automatically when the one nation comes into existence. It is substituting the position of Jesus. Jesus failed at the restoration of the tribe.
When my work to establish the central nation that represents the nations in the world is completed, then as long as your tribes are restored, it will come to you automatically. If you can become the tribal messiah, you are making the link with the foundation for the national messiah, starting from the nation, on the world domain, by paying indemnity for the central nation.... What the unification of north and south signifies is the unification of the communist world and the democratic world. It will become the beginning point for the unification of the earth and the unification of Heaven. (1988.12.20. East Garden)
The way that the unification is brought about is that, centering on this love of Cain and Abel when the connection is made with the foundation that the realm of Abel can digest, Cain and Abel will become one, and the Abel will become the center at the place one level higher, and there, by expanding the foundation of having loved for the sake of the domain of Cain, a tribe or people that is greater in scope, and having brought harmony to them, as one reaches the level of the archangel, then all will come to a successful conclusion. This is how the principle model is. It will unfold based on this formula. (1986.1.3. Hannam-dong House)
6) The Unification Of North And South And Peace Will Come
I could not speak to my older brother about the principle. I could not even speak to my parents about the principle. How earnestly, do you think, I have longed to gather my family and share the words of the principle? However, the dispensation of restoration will not be fulfilled centering on one's own kinsmen. In order to restore the death of Jesus, I have to go out to the world and then return. There is no other choice for me but to turn it around and return to the point where centering on the spiritual foundation the substantial foundation can be built again.
The nation that stands before the world must be protected, within the nation the tribe must be protected, within the tribe the family has to be protected, and within the family the couple and children have to be protected, but in reality a nation wherein this can be done does not exist. Without the foundation of a nation, even if I were to love my kinsmen, I would be accused by Satan. You have to understand this. (1989.1.3. Hannam-dong House)
There is the foundation of God that He has been establishing on the earthly world throughout the history since the creation until now. Finally, in the era of Rev. Moon, He has renewed his expectations on the individual, family, and tribal level, but this tribe is becoming a tribe destined to doom. Everyone is only thinking about his own wife, children and parents, This will perish. I am not telling you not to do that. You are to settle down only after the fight and winning victory, after the unification of north and south. (1987.11.8. Church Headquarters)
8. Attending To The Holy Pictures; Raising The Unification Church Flags Submitting The Application Form For Membership
We, the Unification Church, are rewriting history. We are rebuilding a new heavenly nation. In order to do that, what do we have to do first? We need citizens and public service personnel, right? From the viewpoint of the dispensation, Unification Church members are the public servants, and the people who are submitting the application forms are the citizens. Their missions are different.
Those who have submitted the application forms have placed their stamp [signature] on them. However, people are very scared of putting their stamp on anything because, during the Korean War, it got them into a lot of trouble; they saw how people were executed and their families were massacred because of this.
Recently a regional leader from the Kangwon province came up and reported that members from a certain Catholic church went beyond their normal area of activity to do witnessing. However, when they got there they found that pioneering members of the Unification Church had already given lectures there and had seventy percent of the people sign applications. When the Catholics thought about the fact that Unification Church members already had a majority of the people sign their applications, they were displeased. They decided that they should also go and witness in the same region; as a result, they rushed there and visited all the places.
They visited all the important figures in the village and said, "You should believe in Catholicism. The Unification Church is a cult." Then these people said in reply, "We have already joined the Unification Church." They declared that they had already enrolled in the Unification Church party. They thought that joining the Unification Church was like joining a political party. They consider it something even greater than a party.
From now on, you will find that it is better to bring my picture with you wherever you go. My picture will protect you so that you can persevere through the most difficult hardships. In the Old Testament when Moses was performing miracles in order to liberate the people of Israel from the pharaoh and lead them into the land of Canaan, all firstborn sons died of a deadly disease, except for those who lived in houses which had the blood of lambs painted on their front door. In the spirit world, the spirits not only watch over our actions but also provide protection. (1984.1.15. America)
The Israelites met their doom because after they entered the blessed land of Canaan, they did not know what to do. However, I know what to do. Nonetheless, I did not talk about it. Do you understand what you have to do after entering the blessed land of Canaan? Do not follow in the footsteps of the ancestors.
If you understand this, you should prepare a prayer room in which you should put my picture and bow before it a thousand, even 10,000 times. In the past, the groups, such as that of He Hyo-Bin, who were preparing to receive the Messiah bowed 3,000 times each day. You should try this. When they were making clothes, they sewed each garment by hand, one by one. They believed that doing it on a sewing machine showed disrespect. Even with such great devotion, it was still not enough, But their effort did not yield rotten fruit without seeds. Although the result of this heart flowed away, it still left good seeds. It will revive.
I will not employ the service of those people who are not recognized in the Society of the Unification Church members. People who are like the beggars with no place to go should not come here. (1988.5.15. Headquarters Church)
The reason for this is that even in the satanic world, everyone hangs up the pictures of their parents. Because the last days have dawned upon us, we are to revere the heavenly parents and use them to educate our family in the right traditions. Rev Moon is very famous. Everyone, including the Christian ministers, acknowledges that I am a patriot living for the sake of the nation; isn't that right? Go, ask people. I am well-known as a patriot. Moreover, the whole universe bows down in recognition of my achievements, Furthermore, if, as a result, people come to say, "Since we have put the picture up, even a husband and wife cannot have a quarrel before it," and tell their children, "You should not do such things in front of Rev. Moon," then what is wrong with that? Because you are revering it more than the picture of your own parents, your ancestors will come and also revere it as their ancestor. Do you understand? It will become the altar where ancestors can come and provide service for the household. Because the way to receive heavenly blessing will open up as a result, even after you fall asleep at three o'clock in the morning they will chase out all the selfish devils from the surroundings of your family. (1991.8.25. Headquarters Church)
Having brought about unity in your family, you should implant the words of the teacher, and the mentality of the owner and patriot in the minds of your family members.
The love of God and love of man as expressed in the ideal of creation -- this horizontally and vertically combined ideology must expand from the individual to the family, tribe, people, nation.... You should put up a public notice that states that you have won the right to a new tribe that has inherited the standard of the true lineage, and then, possessing the victorious kingship, raise high the flag. If someone passing by curses at that flag, then he/she will be punished. This is the reason why I told you to put up the flag. I have asked you to put up the flag again, right? Isn't hanging up the pictures and flags all you have to do?
When you hang the picture of True Parents in the room and put up the Unification Church flag, does your place fall under God's dominion or Satan's dominion? [God's dominion.] You will belong to God's dominion. I am trying to make you a part of God's dominion. For this reason, there were many people who were struck by lightning while they were cursing at the flag. This is quite miraculous. Some people developed sickness in their hands because they were pointing their fingers at me; they were able to recover from it only after holding their hand like this and praying in repentance for several days. This kind of phenomena takes place, right? Why?
When the heavenly fortune comes, it cannot be blocked by individual fate. It is an unchangeable destiny. When Moses held his rod up high, all who looked up to it lived. Do you understand? You will live as long as you look up to the Unification Church flag, bowing to it every time you come and go; every time you set out or come back, bow before the picture. (1991.8.25. Headquarters Church)
9. The Results Of The Activities Of Hometown Providence And Its Blessing
1) The Results Of The Activities Of Hometown Providence
Up to now, the reason that Unification Church members have been bearing the cross and receiving persecution is to restore the elder son during this era of the restoration of the eldest son. Should you suffer more hardships during the era of restoration of the eldest son? [We should do more.] We should be doing more. For this reason, a tribal messiah must liberate Jesus and me.
The family of Israel must liberate Jacob, the clan and people of Israel must liberate Moses, Christianity must liberate Jesus, and the Unification Church must liberate Rev. Moon. You cannot enter Heaven otherwise. This is the Principle. These are not merely my own words.
When I come to Korea and proclaim that I will bring its unification, who will help me? God will help me. For this reason, in the position of being one with God, I loved the satanic family, satanic tribe, satanic people, then the satanic nation, satanic world, and I even loved the spirit world and hell. I even loved hell. Because this is what I did, because I loved them, Satan cannot make any accusation even when everywhere I go becomes the individual heaven, family heaven, tribal heaven, people heaven, and national heaven. He cannot say, "You did not love me along with God." There is no room for such an accusation. For this reason, when you become one with me, when you become one with my word, the Satan that has been following you will be completely shaken off.
The meaning of tribal messiah now is that you are going with your family. You are blessed families, do you understand? You have passed the requirements for the family level. Sending the Messiah during the Old Testament Age was the sending of a bridegroom; in this Completed Testament Age now, what I am trying to achieve through my course of suffering is to send the Messiah on the family level.
God was trying to send the Messiah in the Old Testament era. He was trying to do everything in this way through the vertical path. During this Completed Testament era, we are to send the messiah to the four directions on the earth centering on me, and I am centering on the earth and God.
Whose responsibility is the messiah supposed to fulfill? He must restore the failures of Jesus. Did Jesus get married or not? [He did not.] Did you get married or not? [We did.] Centering on this issue of marriage, who is better? How did you get married? Was it done randomly or casually; how did you do it? Your blood lineage was transferred through True Parents. Your bloodline has undergone a transformation.
As a result, this has become the beginning point for the liberation of Jesus, for the historical wall to be dismantled centering on your family, and for the alleviation of the suffering of God and of the pain of the 2,000-year history caused by the failure of Jesus to marry and have children. Consequently, the land of your original hometown will come into existence. It is like the birth of the original hometown of Jesus. Do you understand? The original hometown of love will emerge.
What must we do next? You must liberate me. Unlike you, I do not have a hometown. Even now, shouldn't I go to my hometown? Isn't this true? I must return to my hometown. I did not have the free environment in which as a young man I could educate my mother, father and family members to start God's hometown there and begin God's nation in that place without any persecution.
I was unable to preach the words of the Divine Principle to my parents. My older brother was truly a great man. He was an exemplary older brother in his life of faith. He had received the revelation that our nation would be liberated. Moreover, although he did not know who his younger brother really was, he knew that I, who stood in the younger brother's position according to the secular viewpoint, was to become the greatest man in history. He understood this. He understood what kind of person his younger brother was. God told him, "He is the best of all the younger brothers in the world, so you must listen to whatever he says in your position as an older brother."
Therefore, Cain was restored naturally. Do you understand? It was restoration of Cain on the level of brothers. No matter what I did, whether I sold the house or did something else, he did not object to it at all. But I could not teach a word of the Divine Principle to such a great older brother. Can you grasp how miserable that situation was?
Traveling all over the world and learning while passing through numerous societies and national borders, I have given my life and suffered all kinds of hardships for the sake of resurrecting the people as citizens who can enter heaven. Yet I could not do a thing for my own mother and father; I lost everything there. This was because Christianity opposed me and the Korean nation did not fulfill its responsibility.
Even if I was to return to my hometown now, I assume that my parents have already left it and only a few brothers and sisters still remain. Probably one or two brothers are left. When I visit my hometown, this will probably bc the most incredible of any other sorrowful event that I have experienced outside of it.
For this reason, you must do your hometown mission so that you can do all that could not be accomplished before, either by Jesus, who has been waiting for the day of blessing while persevering through the past 2,000 years, or by my hard struggle during the almost seventy years of my life to love the enemy despite walking the road of opposition and cross; this is what you must do. Accordingly, you must understand that even if you are to suffer tens of times more than the hardships that you have been experiencing for the last several decades after joining the Unification Church, the glory and value of your returning home is better than any position you have now.
You have to shed sincere tears of love for your parents once you are there. You should say, "Father, Mother, I have failed to be a filial son. Older brother and sister, I am sorry to have caused your heart to suffer," and after bringing harmony through love, you should serve the family and rise up to become the ancestor.
You must become the ancestor. This is the beginning of the world. The grandfather is to become like the grandson and the father is to become the son. This is the phenomena that will unfold.
First, accomplish the liberation of Jesus, and then the liberation of who? [Liberation of True Parents.] You cannot accomplish the liberation of True Parents by sitting here. You must return to your hometown. You must have the determination that you will restore the environment that prevented Jesus from teaching the universal truth in the true sense of the word without persecution centering on his own clan; you must build the environment in which you can teach the universal truth without persecution and be determined to stand in the position to receive more persecution than I have received and to love your parents more than me. By your doing so, communism will collapse. Communism will retreat automatically. This is the Principle perspective.
The actions of a tribal messiah must surpass Jesus and me. Do you understand? (1989.1.8. Headquarters Church)
2) The Value Of Having Participated In The Restoration Of The Hometown
Now the time is different. The past was the time of brothers. This is the era in which we must restore parents. It is completely different. You must understand the concept of parents,
Now, as long as you are proud of doing the mission of a tribal messiah and become a worthy Messiah like me, then you will not face opposition wherever you go. I have been carrying on the battle while looking to one side. By walking this path of life, I have laid such a foundation. It is not worthless; rather, it is very precious. You should realize this, too, How proud you should be of this time. This is the first time in history. (1989.4.2. New York)
Parents! Messiah! How much did the ancestors and religious leaders of the past yearn for a Messiah? No matter how much they yearned for him, they could not meet him. However, in this era, in your generation, this has become possible. You do not realize how blessed the generation is that can be together with the True Parents. This era is incredibly blessed.
Even Satan cannot oppose such parents. True parents can bring the true brothers into one and embrace them, but Satan cannot do that. For this reason Satan lowers his head in submission. This is the Principle. This is God's perspective of creation.
How proud we should be of this time in which you can be messiahs!? Do you understand? (1989.5.1. World Mission Center)
3) The Blessing Due To The Hometown Providence
The fact that the hometown providence has been proclaimed in this present era of religious history is extremely joyful news in the dispensation of restoration. However, until you heard the content and explanation of the good news, didn't you think that it was no big deal? If you did, how ignorant are you about the dispensation? (1988.7.22. Hannah-dong House)
I cannot love my hometown, isn't that right? Are you the ones who are blessed or am I? [We are.] You can meet your mother and father. (1989.1.3. Hannam-dong House)
For this reason, in your time you can embrace your parents and call out, "Father." Then your parents can also cry out, "Father!" So how happy must you be? As for me, I could not do this. I was never in the position where centering on the tribe I could call out, "Father," and my family members could feel my heart and shed tears. I could not call out the name of my father. I could not share with him about the victory of the heavenly kingdom. You have to understand that I possess this kind of sorrow.
You should love your family in place of me, who has such a sorrowful history. You must free your relatives. The word is the stick with which you can liberate them. It is miraculous that now the time has come for the proclamation of the word of truth. (1988.1.23. Headquarters Church)
