The Words of Kook Jin Moon from 2012
According to Divine Principle (Divine Principle), the universe and also human beings were created in part by God based on numerical Principles. (Divine Principle, Part II, Chap 3; 2.4). The Divine Principle states that it is for this very reason that the sciences such as Chemistry and Physics progress based on research aided by mathematics. According to Divine Principle, the first human ancestors should have "become complete by passing through a growing period characterized by certain numbers" (Divine Principle, Part II, Chap 3; 2.4). The Divine Principle specifies the number 12 as significant for Adam to reach perfection: "the growing period during which Adam was to establish the foundation of faith was a period for fulfilling the number twelve." (Divine Principle, Part II, Chap 3; 2.4) The number 12 is central because each entity to exist or develop must form a 4-Position Foundation. The Divine Principle goes on to explain that each of the four positions must pass through the three stages of the growing period, making a total of twelve. Further, Principle says that each of the four positions must accomplish the "three object purpose by taking three object partners" which makes a total of twelve object partners. (Divine Principle, Part II, Chap 3; 2.4). In the Providence of Restoration, central figures as they seek to accomplish the goal of creation must fulfill the number 12.
A second number of central significance for both the Principle of Creation and the Principle of Restoration is the number 10 as it represents unity with God attained by passing through the nine levels of the Indirect Dominion and reaching the 10th level of the Direct Dominion: "If we divide each of the three stages of the growing period into three sub-stages, we arrive at a total of nine levels. Herein lies the significance of the number nine in the Principle. As a numerical unfolding of the dual characteristics of the invisible God, each of God's creations passes through the nine levels of the growing period. Each then fulfills its purpose of creation when it becomes one with God in the realm of His direct dominion, which constitutes the tenth level. For this reason, we call the number ten the number of unity." (Divine Principle, Part II, Chap 3; 2.4).
The Divine Principle also explains the significance of the number 144 derived from the Biblical reference to the 144,000 who comprise the "first resurrection." It refers to the first group of people to believe in, serve and follow Christ at the Second Advent: "In the course of God's providence of restoration, Jacob had twelve children with whom he set out on his mission to restore a family. Moses led twelve tribes in fulfilling the mission to restore a nation. If these twelve tribes were to multiply once more after the pattern of twelve tribes, they would total 144. Jesus, who came with the mission to restore the world, found twelve disciples in order to restore through indemnity, both spiritually and physically, the number 144." (Divine Principle. Part I chap 5. 2.2.7) Likewise the Divine Principle further explains that Christ at the Second Advent must restore through indemnity in his lifetime, both spiritually and physically, the long providential course since the First Coming of Christ. To accomplish this, he must find a required number of believers, corresponding to the number 144 which in turn is the multiple of 12 x 12.
Finally, the Divine Principle also explains the significance of the numbers 7 and 21 which is important to comprehend the significance of the Heavenly Calendar date of True Father's Passing. According to Divine Principle, The growing period is also the period to fulfill the number twenty-one: "The first human ancestors were to have become the perfect embodiments of the number twenty-one by laying the foundation of faith through a period based on the number twenty-one and then realizing the purpose of creation." (Divine Principle, Part II, Chap 3; 2.4) The Divine Principle states that the significance of the number 21 is predicated on the meaning for the numbers 3 and 4. Each being must fulfill the 4 position foundation by passing through the 3 stages of growth and "Thus, every creation becomes the perfect embodiment of the number seven, which is the sum of the number of Heaven and the number of earth." (Divine Principle, Part II, Chap 3; 2.4). This is the reason why the Bible recounts the creation of heaven and earth as having taken seven days. Just as the period of creation fulfills the number seven, any period for attaining completion may be regarded as a period to fulfill the number seven: "Looking at the three stages of the growing period in this manner, the period to complete the formation stage, the period to complete the growth stage, and the period to complete the completion stage are each periods which fulfill the number seven. In total, the entire growing period may be regarded as a period to fulfill the number twenty-one." (Divine Principle, Part II, Chap 3; 2.4).
Is it not unsurprising that the time of the passing of our beloved Father, The True Parent of Heaven and Earth, is itself a fulfillment of God's Providential numbers? The date of True Father's Passing is September 3, 2012 or 9/3/12. The sum of 9 plus 3 is 12. As noted above, the number 12 is a central providential number as it represents the ideal of each of the four positions achieving perfection by growing through the three stages as well as each of the four positions fulfilling "the three object purpose by taking three object partners." Further, the sum of the month and day (9/3), 12 and the year (12) when multiplied by each other (12 X 12)1 yield the total of 144 representing the completion of the Lord of the Second Advent's responsibility to find a certain number of first disciples. The hundreds of thousands of members worldwide who have devoted their lives to attend True Parents and then offered sincere prayers and fasting for our True Father during his period of hospitalization is the evidence of the fulfillment of this Last Day prophecy.
True Father passed on 3.7.17 according to the Heavenly Calendar and also fulfilled the numbers 21 and 7 as well as 12. The sum of the day and month (7/17) adds to 24 or 2 X 12. Multiplying Cheon-gi year 3 to the month 7 yields the total of 21. As elaborated above, the Divine Principe understands 7 as the number representing the perfection attained when one achieves the 4 position foundation by passing through the three stages of growth. Further, the number 21 represents the 7 year period for each of the Three Stages of Growth.
Finally, let us look at the hour and minute of True Father's Passing. True Father passed in the morning at 1:54. The sum of those three numbers (1+5+4) is 10. As was previously explained, the number 10 signifies unity with God that is achieved on the basis of proceeding through the 9 levels of growth of the Indirect Dominion and entering the 10th level of the Direct Dominion.
Thus when we look at the day, month, year as well as hour and minute of our True Father's Passing we come to realize that they proclaim the victory of True Father's mission on the earth after having achieved oneness with God, the four Position Foundation and the requisite number of believers. We can appreciate that 1:54 am on 3.7.17 (9/3/12) was the appointed time by God for True Father's Passing so that True Father may carry on his victorious earthly mission in the Spirit World.
Let us give thanks to Heavenly Father and True Parents for just as True Father's entire life was lived in fulfillment of God's Will so also was the chosen moment of His Passing the sign of the completion of that Will.
The Divine Principe (Divine Principle) explains that the first human ancestors had to pass through a course of growth that fulfilled the number forty which is the multiple of 10 and 4 (derived from the 10 levels including Direct Dominion and the number 4 of the four position foundation). Consequently in the Providence of Restoration each central figure must restore the number forty: "Each position of the four position foundation should fulfill the indemnity period to restore the number forty, yielding an indemnity period to restore the number 160." (Divine Principle, Part II, Chap 3; 2.5). True Father passed 172 days before Foundation Day; the number 172 is comprised of 160+12. The number 12 symbolizes that True Father has achieved perfection and established successfully the 4 position foundation passing through the three stages of growth and attained oneness with God. The 160 is the indemnity course that "fallen people were to fulfill." (Divine Principle, Part II, Chap 3; 2.5). Thus True Parents will lead their children through the indemnity course to fulfill the promise of Foundation Day; True Father from the Spirit World and True Mother on the earth will cooperate to guide us to fulfill the condition to restore the indemnity period of 160. True Father in the Spirit World and True Mother will fulfill the Foundation Day Holy Wedding of True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind and dispense this final Re-Blessing to all Blessed families on the same day.
1 It should be noted that our True Father passed at the Korean age of 93 whose sum again equals 12 and corresponds to the date of His Passing 9/3 solar calendar
