The Words of Sun Myung Moon from 2011
Father's tour speech is essentially the one he began giving with the Seunghwa Festivals. The beginning is new, however, and appears in its entirety. Following that are Father's extemporaneous comments during the Incheon speech. The last lines of the written speech before Father began his impromptu comments are in green.
Many people live in the world. Above you are those who have been more successful; below you are those less successful. Further below are people who have perished and vanished in the face of adversities. Among the types of people mentioned, I know that not many people try to understand and discover who they are while analyzing, measuring themselves based on their determination to become a certain type of person.
The person you see standing here began to live an unusual life in his youth. "Is there a God or not?" "Why?" "I did not create the sun; I did not make the stars. When did the mountains, rivers and trees emerge?" I remember the days I spent as a child shouting out these questions.
Though I've lived my life in this way, I could never take pride in living as an exceptional, special representative or as an exemplary figure, or even as someone who just seems ordinary. Among those of you here today may be some who are like me, advanced in age, but coming here with an accepting heart after making the greatest spiritual preparation....
You know God exists. Would you like to become His son? Would you like to become His daughter? Of course, He would also have daughters because both men and women exist. Do you want to become His son or His daughter?
If you were to become God's disciple, would you like to become His male or his female disciple? God would then have sons and daughters. He would have disciples; and He would have errand boys and servants.... If you were asked whether you wanted to be in a group of God's sons and daughters, or of disciples, which would it be?
Let's forget about the other type of people. The people here today seem to be a better type of person. So, which would you like to be -- a child, or a disciple? [A child!] What? [A daughter.] [A son.] Do you know what a son or daughter looks like? Do you know what a disciple looks like?
In the world, they say that the four great saints are people who became God's children. Children are like their parents. Children are born from the most important elements of their parents. They are born in joy and delight out of the union -- not coupling -- between the sperm, a man's crucial element, and the ovum, a woman's crucial element, centering on love....
We know of a hundred and something chemical elements nowadays. Can those elements become God's sperm and the egg of a mother centered on Heaven? Oh! That is never the case. Yet, that a single sperm from the father should meet the mother's egg for the first time amid all the things in the world... Wow! If you believe that love cannot exist outside that bond, when the two come together under the word "love," and when the sperm and egg meet centering on love, clasp each other's hands, promise each other to live together, grow old together forever and become a match made in heaven, that moment constitutes their marriage ceremony. Are people aware of that as they go through their wedding? I don't know. You should ask that question to yourselves -- you who live as couples, have children and take pride in your families. What do God's sperm and God's egg look like? Nobody has ever come across them. God is called the father, yet He comes in the position of a mother. That's a mystery....
Distinguished guests participating in today's event, I am truly happy and grateful to see you at this new assembly.
What I am about to declare to you today is part of the course of True Parents' tour that is to proclaim the ultimate conclusion and fulfillment of all aspects of the providence of restoration during the True Parent's lifetime. The path taken by the True Parents shall serve as a tradition and historic example; thus, I am proclaiming that all of you should model your life course on this path, become families that pledge to inherit and fulfill the will of God that True Parents have already accomplished, and be true to this pledge.
On April 18 we celebrated our 52nd year of marriage. On that occasion, I brought to a close the era before the coming of heaven, which was marked by sin and indemnity [atonement], and proclaimed the era after the coming of heaven through which a new heaven and new earth will be realized by returning to true love.
Through this tour, I am leading a lifestyle befitting the era after the coming of heaven. Please engrave this point in your hearts.
All the blessed children in the heavenly and earthly worlds, who are related to the True Parents by blood, should keep this comprehensive and final proclamation in mind. This proclamation is being given in order to fully establish the ideal nation that comes from the incorporeal God and corporeal God, the God of Night and the God of Day, and from the ancestors of Jesus and of the True Parents.
The details of True Parents' life course have already been disclosed and conveyed to you through my autobiography. I pray that you will all become the representatives and heirs of True Parents before the conclusion of the Cosmic Assemblies for the Settlement of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind and for the Proclamation of the Word by God's Substantial Self. Please take heed of my autobiography, which is a record of my life's work to enable the True Parents to succeed in their mission during their time on this earth, and build on my achievements. Please also inherit the teachings I have bestowed upon this world. In doing so, I pray that you will surely be triumphant in your course of life.
Like the True Parents have done, you too should become heavenly bridges for all your relatives and the members of your clan that are around you, and also a God-centered leader that can guide your clan to God's kingdom.
I ask that you take this proclamation of True Parents to heart and pledge to put it into practice. Aju.
We now live in a world brought to ruin, where genuine communication has broken down.
It would be hopeless. Even if a king who is talented and capable among kings or the greatest of all saints were to emerge, he would not be able to save the world... Why? How can you liberate the very stronghold that caused the Fall without uniting the incorporeal God and corporeal God?
So, the Messiah must come. The True Parent must come. The false parent planted the false seed and people ended up in deathly hell. True Parents are the only ones who have not fallen and who can protect God's Garden of Eden and live with Him. There is only one set of True Parents. Two sets of True Parents couldn't have existed in the past and can't in the present or future for eternity. There is only one set....
I have already proclaimed that January 13, 2013 will be "Foundation Day." That day will be the actual beginning of God's Kingdom of Cheon 11 Guk. That day will be the origin. Yet, less than two years remain until then.
What will you do? [Applause] Answer me! I don't know. They say I am an optimist. I wouldn't know that either. Once you have the hope that things are possible, try making a determination after going through a hundred life-or-death situations.... Any young folk who can become greater than I are symbols of hope, and they will realize that the one being more fearsome than a tiger lying in wait, the one being in the long-cherished garden that can be the one and only master is God! Aju! [Applause; Aju!] Don't say, amen. It's not amen but aju jo-tab. A world is coming where you will be taken by the Parents and the king of kings, to tour the world of heaven and earth, where the Parents can say that they will care for you as their children.
Because Koreans attend such a God as their original ancestor, the spirit of interdependence, mutual prosperity and universally shared values is alive in the soul and tradition of the Korean people.
That spirit has continued to this day as the spirit that surpasses this spirit of interdependence, mutual prosperity and universally shared values. Because of that, my spirit self can discuss matters with the God of Night, which is why, through the absolute universe and absolute love, I can know about the secret, heavenly world of today and the liberated kingdom of heaven for humankind. The Garden of Eden is the garden that remained within the realm of God's grace. The Garden of Eden still exists.
First, all blessed families should attend God at the center of their families...
All of those here today these mongrel dog-like people, these beggars, and even my own family are all part of the ideal family. They all enjoy life. God did not tell you to live like that! You don't know God. First of all, all blessed families must go before God, and in the family attend God as the center.
Third, humankind has moved out of the authority of the era of restoration through indemnity, thanks to the grace of True Parents who have suffered hardships through which they sweat blood.
For you to be well off is enough! In heaven and on earth you might end up becoming ancestors who gaze around, yearning to be liberated. It will be the other way around. The last human beings should raise a flag and be saved. Do not forget that you are responsible to liberate even hell. I too can save my family, nation, people and world but I should not forget that I am responsible to liberate hell to its very ends.
This mission must be completed within the next one year and eight months, by the D-day designated by True Parents.
If this is not completed, a time might come, before we know it, when everything suddenly disappears due to an atomic bomb or an earthquake.
I pray in the name of True Parents that God's blessings be with you, your family and your nation.
Religion is not the problem! God is not the problem! Figure out if what True Parents' say is the truth! The conclusion is simple. Go in peace and with a light heart....Take a nap during the day with God and you can still go to heaven.
