Note: These notes are taken from a simultaneous translation. Simultaneous translation is done in summary form and depends greatly on the translator's ability to communicate the essence of the message. These cannot be published as definitive texts and should never be used in the future as an "official" publication on Rev. Moon's words. However, they do provide a good idea of the "spirit" of the message.
The morning session was mostly filled with song and celebration. Rev. Edwards and Rev. Masilamoney danced and rejoiced with the Cheon Il Guk citizens of Korea, Japan, and America.
America is the Elder son nation and has a central providential role at this time. What about Japan? Japan has a lot of responsibility to rectify the past history. That is why I ask so much of Japan. Japanese women are fulfilling this role for the dispensation. That is why they are sent out to the world with such sacrifice.
Please know that I have prepared to say what I am telling you. Japanese people, you like to work. That is why you are called Il Bon. Il is "work" in Korean. The people who have sustained Japan have not been men but women. If you study history, you will see this. Japan cannot disappear. We have to understand that Japan was the nation that was ruling the Asian continent. We will absolutely fulfill the Peace Kingdom. The peaceful culture of the Pacific will go forth now for 1,000 years. Isnít it interesting that the Secretary General of the UN is Ban Ki Moon? Now everyone is hearing the "Moon" name constantly.
Japanese Cho Cheon Yun (pro North Korean). Who is with that group? How about Mindan (pro South Korean)? Many are here.
Confucianism is not so much a religion as it is a family moral teaching. What is it about the Unification Church that can bring the two together? It is not Confucianism. The only way you can unify religions or North and South Koreans is through the True Parents of Heaven and Earth. In order to protect the family, three generations must become one.
Heaven and earth, up and down; all movements are found in harmony in the creation. A cold current and a warm current both merge around the Japanese islands. The area around Japan includes China, Russia, China, and Manchuria. The fish in the ocean cannot survive without the movement of the ocean currents, rivers and oceans all merging.
The Japanese race is not big enough to digest the world. You really donít know that much about it as Japanese, but that is why Japan cannot digest the world.
We have passed the formation and growth stages; we are in the completion era. It was in the time of Jesus that Rome was accepting religions. Now, in this age, I am in a position different from the time of Jesus. Christianity is ready to welcome us, and it has a worldwide foundation centering on America, the second Israel in the realm of the Cosmic Peace Kingdom civilization. So there is no problem.
We have boat factories in America. I knew this time would come. I have founded manufacturing enterprises and newspapers that can help shape the direction of the world. You need to become my representatives, and you need to inherit my foundation. Hyung Jin Nim is mastering eight languages. He, along with Hyun Jin Nim, have gone to Harvard. They have friends who are very influential because of that.
Together we can join with the Americans who are here to help save America. Who is the person here who is older than me? (The head of the pro North Korean group is actually an older man. Father asked him, "Are you my father or are you my son?" Ė He said, "Iím your son." Then Father called the head of the Mindan group forward, and also another pair of younger pro South and pro North Koreans.) You have to reverse the history of the Communist Party. Should this world go to its demise? (As they stood there, Father addressed Rev. Yoo, who was the leader of Japan for many years.) Now, Rev. Yoo, you must stay in Hawaii and educate these people and make them one family. We are all family now, and we must bring the family of North and South Korea together peacefully. Because Japan did many terrible things to Koreans and killed so many, you must take responsibility to indemnify this.
From now I ask you all to follow Godís providence. We will not be stopped. We will get a second hometown. The Peace Kingdom will come. Be prepared for this time with all of the abilities and assets you have accumulated.. You canít bring the things of the world with you to use for personal position or power. You must come forward based on character. Even if it takes us three or four generations, its seed must grow into heaven. We need to build a homeland and a nation; we will go beyond the boundaries of religion.
There will come a time when I will no longer take responsibility for your mistakes. Then whatever happens, you will be responsible. The Kingdom of God on earth is the biggest wish and the biggest hope of hopes for all humanity. This is the last page of the testament that I am writing. You have to go beyond the level of boundaries based on race or people and become part of Cheon Il Guk. Godís nation is the nation that has no boundaries or barriers and the nation that will secure the world for peace. Each one of you must be prepared to rededicate yourselves, making a new beginning in your life.
We must equalize and unify as one. I hope that you will do everything that you can for a new beginning of Godís homeland.
This is a very serious thing that I am telling you today. From now, the speech you need to follow is "The Pacific Rim Era in Godís Providence." This content should be used immediately. It is the basis of your study at this time.
