The Words of Sun Myung Moon from 2009
On several public occasions recently, Father has given the following speech together with the January 31 coronation speech. This version has been prepared for the June 1 Commemoration of the Publication of Sun Myung Moon's Memoirs, to be hosted by FFWPU and UPI: It includes modifications pertinent to that day.
Beloved families that have recently received the new lineage of the absolute, unique, unchanging, and eternal God through the Blessing, and citizens of God's kingdom, Cheon Il Guk!
We are celebrating a truly special occasion in this absolute providential era. It is deeply meaningful because we are commemorating the coronation and the golden wedding anniversary of the True Parents, the king of kings; the publication of my autobiography and the fifty-fifth anniversary of the founding of the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity. Today is June 1, a day on which we are holding a new historic event through which the establishment of the new, truly peaceful world of the True Parent UN is proclaimed before all of heaven and earth. For these joyful occasions and days, let us all offer applause in gratitude to God, our Heavenly Father -- who governs the life, death, fortune and misfortune of all creation -- for giving us these beautiful and dazzling seasons and days.
During this season, vibrant with life, God is beckoning all of you -- as lords of creation -- to freely participate, with all other created beings, in the creation of new life. He is blessing us to blossom beautifully like flowers and to live lives that are as bright as the sun and as clear as the waters of a stream.
Dear friends who are receiving heaven's love anew: On three occasions, once on January 15 and twice on January 31, we held the historic Coronation for the New Authority of the Liberation of God, the King of Kings, and our golden anniversary celebration. January 31 saw one such ceremony held at the Cheon Jeong Peace Palace in Korea, representing the East, and another held in New York City, in the U.S., representing the West. In this way, we set the record of offering this unprecedented and never to be repeated providential event to Heaven in two different locations on the same day.
In the period since April, my wife and I commemorated the fiftieth occasion of the day of our Holy Wedding. In 1960, young students on the Korean peninsula were crying out in resistance to dictatorship of Korean President Syngman Rhee. On the sixteenth day of the third month of the lunar calendar in that year, my wife and I received heaven's seal and embarked on the arduous courses of the providence of restoration that the True Parents, True Teachers and True King and Queen of humankind must take.
How could I even begin to explain the path of the providence of restoration through indemnity that my wife and I have had to follow for the past fifty years in order to finally bring complete liberation and freedom to God and to attend Him as the King of Kings? Many years from now, historians will verify and record what I cannot explain at this time.
You are probably not aware of this, but there is profound providential significance in True Parents' coronation and golden wedding anniversary. Due to the fall of humankind's first ancestors, God's true lineage was lost and history came under the dominion of Satan's false bloodline. I am sure you have learned about this reality through studying the Principle.
This corrupted bloodline has been a facet of history. Isn't it because of this that the physical world -- and even the spiritual world -- became completely mired in antagonistic, confrontational, good versus evil, Abel and Cain relationships? Nobody has been able to find a resolution to this tragedy, and history's problems have gone unresolved to this day.
Times are now changing, however. The doors to the realm of complete unity between Cain and Abel are being opened on the occasions of True Parents' coronation and golden wedding anniversary. We have entered the realm of grace where human beings can be restored to the level of completion and perfection at which they can inherit and share the original nature of God's heart; in other words, to the originally-intended human state, without any trace of the Fall.
In terms of "O" and "X," we have entered the new era when the good governance of God, who is in the position of "O," can completely embrace and digest, without leaving a trace of it behind, the evil governance of Satan, who is in the position of "X." The new era is beginning in which the kingdom of heaven on earth and in heaven is substantially spreading out before your very eyes, and when there is no longer the need to distinguish between the True Parents who work as the embodiment of God and the incorporeal God Himself.
On this occasion, which has that kind of special significance, my wife and I celebrated our coronation and golden wedding anniversary and successfully held the Round-ball Peace Cup Cain-Abel Cosmic Harmony Tournament for thirteen days starting on April 21. One day, it will become a festival of peace for all humanity, even surpassing the Olympic Games.
The Atletico Sorocaba football club from Brazil contributed greatly to this first tournament by laying aside everything else to come here at True Parents' invitation. Sorocaba won the FA Cup championship in Sao Paulo, Brazil, in 2008. During their short time in Asia, they played against four teams, representing North Korea, South Korea, Japan and China. They displayed an excellent standard of skill and demonstrated the soul of Latin American football. Would you please give a warm round of applause to encourage the Sorocaba team!
Ladies and gentlemen! I would like to offer to Heaven this precious new ceremony by reading with you now the message from Heaven that I proclaimed in January, at the Coronation of God, the King of Kings, and thereafter at our golden anniversary celebration. Please engrave the meaning of today's event in your hearts.
At this point, Father gave the coronation speech from January 31, with minor adjustments, and then concludes:
Ladies and gentlemen who have been chosen by Heaven! I am sure you all feel this from the message I have just read, but humankind is entering a new providential era wherein the earth will follow a new, heavenly way and be governed directly by new, heavenly law. It is the new providential era of the realm of the fourth and original Adam, where no one can enter the new kingdom of heaven without inheriting God's new standard of heart based on His original nature.
Through True Parents' providential coronation, golden wedding anniversary, publication celebration and the commemoration of the fifty-fifth anniversary of the founding of the Holy Spirit Association in this new era, I pray that you may form wise and new families of citizens in God's kingdom, Cheon Il Guk -- families whose members clearly distinguish between Cain and Abel in their lives, who integrate them into a new realm of Abel, placing goodness at its center, and who restore the realm of the three eras of the Old, New and Completed Testament ages and the three generations of my family. I am asking you to form (and live as) new true families based on original human nature through which the new true grandparents, true parents, and true grandchildren can enter, hand in hand, into the new kingdom of heaven. Please engrave on your hearts the meaning of this gathering to establish the truly peaceful world of the True Parent UN, which we are celebrating today.
I pray and proclaim in the names of the victorious True God and True Parents that the new authority of the great blessing of the true God, the king of kings of all nations, can flow abundantly into your new families, new nations, and throughout the new cosmos.
May God's blessings fill the entire cosmos. Thank you very much.
