Unification News for June 1998

Editorís Note: Articles About Spirit World

This monthís issue contains two articles that include material about the spirit world. Both treat spirit world in rather familiar terms. One, the cover story, relates about the marriage blessing of spirit persons. The second is an account of the work with spirit world taking place at Chung Pyung Lake. While many people have experiences of spirit world by which to interpret these articles, many do not have such experiences and may wonder at them. The editor offers the following comment for those of the latter group:

While taking spirit world very seriously, Unificationist ideology is firmly planted on earth, following Jesusí saying that "what is bound on earth is bound in heaven." God created the earth and its fullness for His glory and our joy and happiness; He will not destroy it and the ultimate human fulfillment is based upon our life on earth.

Nonetheless, we do live beyond the physical life. The problems we fail to resolve on the earth we carry to the spirit world. It is only wise for us to do all we can on earth to solve the problems that we may encounter in the next life.

The Divine Principle states, "During the period when the providence of restoration is to be completed after the Second Coming of Christ, God will complete the cosmic foundation for the Messiah by working throughout heaven and earth based on the Completed Testament Word."(Exposition of the Divine Principle, p. 185) This indicates that from the 1950s, it was clear that Reverend Moonís work would ultimately relate directly to spirit world. Therefore, what is taking place now should come as no surprise.
