Report from Rev. Peter Kim:
True Parents left on October 10th to Alaska with Hyun Jin Nim and Shin Ae Nim. Hyun Jin Nim took his son deep into the mountains for training. Then True Parents went to international leaders seminar in Cheju Island. Leaders from all over the world went to Unification Thought training. Unification Thought was studied night and day as well as Divine Principle. This December there will be a world wide UT exam for all leaders.
September 3 - 7. Father went to Seoul. Father did many providential conditions and activities while in Seoul. Father visited Sun Moon University. Father attended and supported to Universal Ballet. Hoon Sook Nim has done a very excellent job. Only two ballets exist in Korea. Universal Ballet and National Ballet. Only Father is the benefactor of the Universal Ballet while the national government supports the National Ballet. Universal Ballet is receiving much critical acclaim. Far greater than the National Ballet. The Shim Chung ballet of the Shim Chung and her father the blind man was created by Universal Ballet. Korean people knew the quality and value of the UB. They now have an international following as the performed in the Kennedy Center, Lincoln Center and Music Hall in Los Angeles. These prestigious locations are known world wide.
Through the Coronation ceremony for Godís Kingship. Father gave total forgiveness to former members. Father offered his love and forgiveness to all former members and leaders. Also, concerning all the 14 Ewha University students came and many became wives of the 36 blessed couples. Some of them could not continue in the movement and stay with Father. However Father and Mother invited them back for a special meeting to embrace and forgive them. Our members contacted every one of them. Father embraced all of them and prepared gifts for them. All were given beautiful gifts by True Parents. Like black pearls. True Parentsí love and forgiveness reached every possible person.
September 7th True Parents went to Alaska. Tragic event occurred in NY and Washington D.C. Father brought 10 major National Messiahs to Korea and made 10 regions. Father brought them to Kodiac and gave them very specific directions. Dealing with peace ambassadors, Christians and education of all people.
From 1998 to today has been a 3 years period. We Unification church leaders are not just working on an individual level but on a world level representing all humanity. The final goal is to restore Godís Kingship. Following the providential program. 1998 began the time when Father could bring about the final division between Godís side and Satanís side. Because of this God can dwell in us and sit on his throne and relate with us as the King of Kings.
I prepared from the individual to world level and proclaimed the Coronation Ceremony. You should know how important this is, and America should develop these ideas and the providence. This tragedy -- whether it was Godís interruption or not -- whatever your -- we should know whether God interfered or not -- Jesus Christ prepared on the cross, now America stands on the cross of the world. You should develop the result of love and go forward in that way. That means that America should put itself on the cross, doing it by themselves, into the position of the sacrifice, serving others. How much does America understand this? America should be put on the cross. How much are they loving others, their enemies?
Now is the time to change everything. America and Americans must take the lead in practicing "Love your enemy". America must follow the providence of God. Father established the Interreligious and International Federation for World Peace.
America must connect properly with this organization for there to be peace. Our members must convey this idea to all people. The religious leaders must unite beyond their religion and guide the political leaders of their nations. If this doesnít happen there will be no peace. The core idea is connecting religions, so I established the IIFWP and IRFF and WANGO to work at the UN. Centering on these organizations, then America can connect and combine and through that develop Godís providence. If it doesnít happen, then more chaos will come.
Now is time for American brothers and sisters to take responsibility for this country. Now is the time for this society to become the reflection of Godís love. This is the time to bear the fruit. This means we can bring the whole world back to God. IIFWP has the mission to embrace all of America and the world and bring them back to God. . If America stands on Godís side it will prosper. If it doesnít it will perish.
We need to inherit the absolute authority of the Coronation of Godís kingship, and members should convey this to all people. It is time for American brothers and sisters to take responsibility for this country. Internally move other people and in that way society can go to the way of Godís side, growing the trunk, branches, leaves and flowers and bearing the fruit. That way we can bring the world back to Godís side. So IIFWP has the mission to embrace the country, America and the world. The world, when it centers on God, will have love and faith and on that idea, living trees will grow well. Jesus cursed the fig tree when it did not bear fruit
Heavenly Father established and gave so much heart to this nation. All UC members must give love and liberate Godís heart. You must have Absolute Faith, Absolute Love and Absolute Obedience. You must love this country more than any other Americans. 8 months passed after the coronation of Godís Kingship. If we poured out our whole heart in the last 8 months this tragedy would not have happened. Now is the time to invite all religious leaders to come together and practice love for all religions. Now is the time to invite all religious leaders and give them the blessing. Manís ideas can never solve the problems of war and terrorism.
Fighting in this country is not good. America has morality problems especially with the youth. All I see is family breakdown. I have invested 30 years to save this country. How many people understand this? Who feels that this is your country? This is not the Unification Church; it is my church. Our church. We can solve the conflict of brothers and families. That is the core of the living offering fund; upon that idea we can connect NGOs and develop this activity. My mission is done for this country. I have declared and announced everything. So far, many blessing couples pray in the name of True Parents, but on the victorious foundation of True Parents, pray as blessed central family. You donít need God, the messiah, True Parents -- you are the central person, the important one. I bequeath everything to you based on the coronation ceremony. I wonder how much you understand this foundation and are serious to take care of this environment.
You must think that America is MY NATION and MY TRIBE. This is MY destiny thatís why I can solve these problems and ideas. All these responsibilities. Nobody can solve these problems. All these problems can be solved by absolute faith, love and obedience in the Unification Church members. IIFWP leaders must make a coalition of leaders beyond any religion. All these leaders just fighting each other. Bishop Stallings is here. Now is the time to be very Interreligious. Three brothers, black brother, white brother and yellow brother must embrace each other and bring love to everyone. This is a very serious time. We must unite together. We committed for 12,000 ministers to come. We must make a coalition together and unite and bring hope to this nation.
Without this kind of blessing ideas this country will not have any direction. White people should be humble, not be proud. Their power cannot stop these problems. The jet terrorist attack could not be stopped by power.
My God, My Country, My Will. This is MY COUNTRY. Not someone elses. People against God is more difficult. Economic problem and family breakdown. If you have economic prosperity but family breakdown you have nothing.
Not our Country. MY COUNTRY. My means "I" have responsibility. IF YOU SAY OUR COUNTRY -- you are a thief. When you say "Our" it means that you think someone else will do it. All the family problems must be solved. What is the meaning of the Living Offering Fund. Upon that idea you can connect all NGO and build a new world. Fatherís mission is done for this country.
Now blessed couples pray in their own names as a Blessed Central Family. You understand Fatherís position and with the Coronation of Godís Kingship you can understand everything. How much are you seriously thinking about what Father is doing and the meaning of America. Godís nation is MY nation. I want to be the best filial son and daughter. You must understand the time that has come. You must understand this time. East Garden is MY house. True Family must have this concept.
You should unite with God and True Parents in oneness. Godís will is my will; Godís nation is my nation. I want to be the best filial son and daughter. You should have this conviction. Saints and prophets could not make it. This is such an important time; it all connected with me, I am important. What is this? It is mine. Even East Garden is mine. True children should have the same concept. One heart; without uniting Cain and Abel, we cannot go forward. Husband and wife should unite too; this is important. Without unity of husband and wife there is no way to go. This is MY country. How seriously did you think about this country as MY country and that I am responsible. Father never follows your ideas. We do not follow any leaders. This is a very important meeting, why are not all the key leaders here. You are sons and daughters of True Parents. You must connect Godís Will is MY will. Fatherís mind is so serious. Father did 50 state speaking tour. Father went without meal many times and did Hoon Dok Hae and forgot himself and almost missed the airplane schedule. No one knows Fatherís heart. Father is perfect 90 degree to Godís heart. American government - how much Rev. Moon sacrificed to save this country.
My eyes, my nose, my mouth etc. No one says our eyes etc. You must think MY God. MY country. Unification church is MY CHURCH. All other American people would start to feel to help Unification church.
You must help each other and work with each other. Who is the owner. This country is MY COUNTRY. How many people think this is MY Country. Most donít think about it. Father emphasized that this is MY GOD. Father never sits in the back and is always on the front line. Fatherís way is my way. Father wants to donate all the MSG to help America. Father made a special decision at this time. We postpone this ceremony and donate all this expense to America. Father is the root of the tree -- we are the branches. We must redetermine ourselves even if we die. At the price of life.
This is MY COUNTRY. This country must inherit the tradition of our True Parents. We need ownership of this country. This is my nation. Black, white and yellow. The ownership is mine. Society we donít care what they say we just follow Godís providence.
Thatís why Father did a special leaders workshop. We must have OWNERSHIP of this nation. Godís blood lineage is MY BLOOD LINEAGE. You need absolute faith, love and obedience.
All leaders must understand this. This is the purpose of the workshop at this time for America. You should set this up yourself. When you think about love -- True Love. You canít take a rest. You must have that kind of desperate heart. If you donít do well its because you are not True. What is a Blessed Central Family. All families must be a Blessed Central Family. I wonder how many people you will develop to support Godís providence. I gave all ideas to you from the spirit world. All leaders must unite together to save this country. You must educate all the leaders. The Liberated Parents of Heaven and Earth and the children, united as one mind and body, fulfill the purpose of True Love. Godís LIVING OFFERING. The Living Offering fund is most important to save this nation and the world. If you donít understand this way donít expect Godís Blessing.
