Sun Myung Moon, Hak Ja Han, Kook Jin Moon, and Hyung Jin Moon January 23, 2012
Note: These notes are taken from a Peace TV video clip. They cannot be published as definitive texts and should never be used in the future as an "official" publication of True Father's words. However, they do provide a good idea of the "spirit" of the message. -- Rev. Katsumi Kambashi
Mrs. McDevitt read Father's speech from the Sermons of the Rev. Moon #42, titled "The Turning Point of Rise and Fall."
"Why did we need the words "The Turning Point of Rise and Fall" at this meeting today? Last night, I liquidated it. The world before the creation wants to go with me, and therefore the only task I have is to love that world, and having excuses will become the conditions that deny my existence."
"Where do I go from now on? It will be known after a couple of days here. I have to leave everything here, and if I take such a path even only by myself if necessary God will provide me everything for me and will not be able to cut me off. I would say I have a belt on my back, and the US has such a belt of the Christian tradition. When I live more for the sake of others being more advanced making more efforts, God will follow me and bless the place where I am as the pillar. Going further ahead than anybody in creating a new world, where am I, like a wild goose in a vacant space, focused on? I will go down a one-way street and centering on the settled pillar, I cannot help but be the main figure of liberation and successor of the King, Aju, and I conclude everything with gratitude."
"It is 정주 (定州 / Jeongju, where Father's hometown is) that 정착 (定着/Jeongchak, which means 'settlement') of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind occurs. What does 정 mean? It is 'to be settled.'"
(Katsumi: In this context, Father relates 정 of 정주 and that of 정착.)
"There is a miserable history of 해녀 (haenyeo, female diver, who gathers shellfish for living) in Jeju Isalnd. Even if they take off their clothes, they will never sell out their bodies they received from their parents and their chastity.")
Mother came in with Shin Pyeon Nim (Kook Jin Nim's son), and Father said, "This boy is my 표제 (Pyoje/title). 작은 표제 (Little).
".천지인참부모정착 (Settlement of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind). 그러면 다 되는거야."
They sang with Father 흑산도 아가씨 (Babe Heuksan )and 고향무정(Heartless home).
"When the Unification Church started training, there were all bad things in 개연 밭 (Gae Yeon field). When I was catching fish, I moved my body, and I was stung by the 개연 가시 (Gae Yeon thorns) and swollen and formed pus over the night. When I saw my body in the mirror, I found my body was full of pus. When I scratched, the blood flew from my chest down to legs, and then when I looked over the mountain, the hot smoke appeared from the summit there. Then it surrounded me, and it went up to the sky riding on the clouds, which I thought symbolized the Feast of the Lamb of 144,000 in the air."
"Dokdo is an island where the sun rises, and is made of granite stone that looks like a white rock."
"The Grand Canyon is the unexplored place where grandfather escapes."
"Do Ulleungdo and Dokdo belong to Korea or Japan? When I went to Japan, I said 'Don't deceive your mouth,' and later I came to Las Vegas centering on Hawaii because the bridge was cut off. Las Vegas and Geomundo."
(Katsumi: In OSDP lecture, Rev. Yu says Father started the providence centering on Hawaii since Japan couldn't be the path for True Father to connect the US, where True Parents dedicated themselves for more than 30 years, and Korea.)
"How come Yong Myung Moon became Sun Myung Moon? Anybody in the villages in 36-km range from my house knew me as '오산집 조그만 눈 (Small-eyed boy of the Osan house)'
They sang with Father "Higher Ground."
