Divine Principle Lectures from the 120 Day Workshop
by Ken Sudo
As you know, substance has dual aspects of sung-sang and hyung-sang; then, even as to social events or affairs, if something happens behind them, there must be cause. Cause also has substance or events. Behind substance or events there must be cause and the cause must also have sung-sang and hyung-sang. For instance, in 1950 in the Korean peninsula, in the early morning of 1950, June 25, suddenly North Korea invaded the South. Critics will give an explanation that because Kim Il-Sung, Mao and Stalin discussed a plan to invade the South and the U.S. had announced its intention to withdraw from the South, they invaded because the situation seemed good to them. This is just a hyung-sang understanding of world affairs. As far as hyung-sang exists there must be a sung-sang behind it.
As you know, this is Cain and this is Abel. Why would Cain attack Abel? There must have been a condition of disbelief through which Satan could invade. Yes, disbelief against the Lord of the Second Advent. Disbelief of Christianity was the internal or sung-sang reason why Korea was invaded. Therefore, we need to understand world affairs from the providential point of view, then we can foresee what is forthcoming and what we should do.
Then what was the providential reason or understanding of the World Wars? If man hadn't committed sin, then there would be no wars. Centered on God, Adam and Eve and the Angel were responsible for the foundation for the kingdom of God. However, because of the fall of man, they couldn't fulfill their mission. In order to recreate the world, some one must be responsible for the indemnification of this failure. Then, 6,000 years ago, this was just like the family level dispensation. But now it is the worldwide scale of dispensation.
The family must be made up of individuals. Now, when the dispensation is expanded to the worldwide level, the world must be made up of individual nations. Therefore, nations must be responsible for the indemnification of the failure of individuals. To indemnify this failure centering on God, one nation must be responsible for the indemnification of the failure of Adam 6,000 years ago. This country is called the Adam nation. Likewise, another country must be responsible for the indemnification of the failure of Eve. This is called the Eve nation. Another must be responsible for the indemnification of the Archangel; the Archangel nation.
Then eventually, in order to restore this failure, all three nations must be united into oneness, centered on God. We must subjugate the satanic pattern first. Then we can be victorious. Therefore, God hasn't approved the same pattern centering on Satan. Three nations must be centered on Satan; Adam, Eve and Archangel. Through the struggle and battle between Abel and Cain, then if Abel can subjugate Cain, this pattern will be restored. Satan took the pattern first, so if we can't subjugate the pattern, it will come out again. The Abel camp must be able to subjugate the Cain camp. Three is the number of perfection, so in order to get final victory, we must go through formation, growth and perfection stages. This is the worldwide dispensation now, and when they both fight against each other, Satan will be subjugated completely and the kingdom of God on earth will be realized.
World War I. God intended to establish His kingdom on earth by sending the first Adam. God sent His first Adam and, as you know, Satan destroyed him, manipulated him and had dominion over him. Therefore, in order to establish the condition to have restored this failure, Satan has to establish his pattern, and this means Satan's dominion will be destroyed, and then Satan will be subjugated in the first stage. Three rounds will be fought between God and Satan. Satan has to establish his pattern or his dominion. Satan, like God, has to send his first Adam. This was the Kaiser. Therefore, his country, Germany, became the Adam country. Eve was Austria-Hungary. Turkey became the Angel country centered on Satan. The Kaiser was the Adam figure.
These three nations formed the Cain-type camp and therefore, this was the formation stage satanic dominion.
Therefore, the Kaiser had the idea of a Pan-Germanism which would have dominion over the world. As you know, Satan felt a lack of love because Adam got the three great blessings. He was jealous. He envied him and he tried to get the same blessing as man. Satan's desire was to have dominion over the world. This is the idea of Pan-Germanism; it is an expression of Satan's desire to have dominion over the world. In order to cope with the dominion of Satan, God had to overcome this camp. Centering on Russia as Adam, England as Eve, and France as the angel, the Abel camp was established. The world was divided into two and the two sides began to fight in 1914. In the midst of the bloody struggle, Russia was taken by Satan through the Russian revolution of 1917.
Instead of Russia, God had to dispatch another Adam. This was America. Centering on America, through unity between America, England and France, Abel subjugated the Cain camp and therefore, after victory in 1919, the peace treaty was signed, the Versailles Treaty was signed. Cain and Abel were reconciled with each other and therefore, the worldwide foundation of substance was laid, centered on the Christian countries. Already, the worldwide foundation of spirit was laid because, centering on the Christian countries, the world has gone through 400 years since the religious reformation. Now Cain was subjugated and with both foundations the worldwide formation stage foundation for the Messiah was laid. Now God was able to send the Messiah on earth.
In 1918, World War I finished, and the next year, the peace treaty was signed. The Messiah came in the beginning of 1920. God must have sent the Messiah as soon as the foundation was laid. God must have been anxious to save mankind, even one day or one moment after the foundation was laid. To realize this, we can understand God's desire to save mankind. Through the 20th century we can understand the love of God and His desire to save mankind. If the Cain camp had won, then no Messiah could have come. In this meaning, America, England, and France fulfilled their missions.
Based on this victory, the second war, the second dispensation had to come in order for the Messiah to start his mission. Another dispensation had to be finished. This was World War II. This is why, after World War I, Germany revived so rapidly.
Now, in order to restore the failure of the first Adam, God sent a second Adam, Jesus. Jesus' mission was to form a four-position foundation centering on God, but Satan killed Jesus. Therefore, the Second Adam was taken away by Satan. Then Satan had to send his second Adam and his second Adam was taken by God. Then God can restore the lost Jesus. Satan has to send his second Adam, and he was notorious in history. His country, Germany, became the Adam country, Japan became the Eve country and Italy became the Angel country centered on Satan. Then the Cain camp was established, the Cain block was established. If the Cain camp was destroyed by the Abel camp, then the Second Adam, Jesus (represented by Christianity) could be restored.
Then the Third Adam could start his mission upon the victorious foundation of Christianity. To accomplish this, God had to establish His camp. In World War I, the Abel camp was successful in their mission. Therefore, the successful combination was transferred to World War II. Centering on America, now England and France completed the Abel camp. This is called the allied forces. The world was divided into two, and in 1939 World War II broke out.
Because the dispensation was continued centering on Christianity, Christianity was in the Abel position. The countries of the Cain camp were anti-Christ. In Germany, Nazism mistreated Christians and had an ideology more than Pan-Germanism. The Nazis thought Germans were a special race and were the greatest in the world, so they thought they should have dominion over the world. Germany over all was more or less their motto.
The growth stage foundation was laid. Therefore, they mistreated Christians and Jews. Many ministers were imprisoned and killed, even in Japan because of a kind of militarism. Also in Korea, which was under Japanese dominion, many Christians were killed because of their faith. In Italy there was less persecution, but Protestantism was treated the worst. Nazism, militarism, and fascism were satanic. Then, after a severe battle, first Italy surrendered and then next Germany surrendered and then at the deadline, from the providential point of view, Japan surrendered on August 15, 1945. According to the lunar calendar, this was July 7. This is the final deadline from the providential point of view. If it was delayed one day, many Christians were to be killed in Korea, maybe even Father would have been killed because of the atomic bomb. Therefore, it was inevitable for God to allow the use of the atomic bomb.
Now, Abel subjugated Cain and after the Peace Treaty, reconciliation was made between Cain and Abel. This is now the growth stage for the worldwide foundation for the Messiah which was laid. Upon this foundation now, the Messiah can start his mission on earth.
Jesus was lost to Satan but because of this condition, Jesus was now restored, symbolically. Then the crucifixion was indemnified so that the Lord of the Second Advent could start his mission on the victorious foundation of Christianity. If only they had obeyed the Messiah. But truth is truth; they didn't obey the Messiah. This is why the Messiah had to start his mission with the Unification Church. Upon this foundation of victory now, the Messiah could start his mission on earth from 1946. If in World War II, Cain had gained victory over Abel, then the Messiah would have been killed again.
But there is one point to be discussed. 'Who must be the satanic representative? If Russia is in satanic position, it is strange for Satan to help God. Then why did Satan do it? Because America is a democracy, and Russia was, also. Even though to tell the truth, Russia is not so democratic, but has an election with only one candidate; no opposing party at all. This is the one-party system election in Russia, China, and North Korea. Truth is truth; they have a dictatorship system but the pattern is democratic. Therefore, Nazism, militarism, fascism and totalitarianism were enemies to democracy. Because they had common enemies, the democracies could cooperate temporarily. But after the destruction of the common enemy, they divided into two as their essential nature is in defiance of one another. As soon as World War II was finished, they divided into Cain and Abel., like water and oil.
They started the formation and growth stages. Now the perfection stage must come to decide the destiny of mankind. Mankind belongs either to God or to Satan. This is the essential meaning of World War III. God sent the third Adam, and also from the Russian revolution, God was compelled to let the satanic foundation be laid. Centering on Satan, this camp was established. According to the Principle, the fall came and evil came through the Angel to Eve and from Eve to Adam. Therefore, the firstborn country, a Communistic country, must be the Archangel country. This was Russia. The mission of the Angel is to help the birth of Adam and Eve, and to help them grow. Under the protection of Russia, Red China, the Eve country, was born. Also, the Adam country, North Korea, was born. Actually, there was a Communist revolution in Red China, the Eve country. From the providential point of view, North Korea is the Adam country, centered on Satan. Therefore, Russia laid the foundation and helped the birth of the Eve and Adam countries centered on Satan. Russia, Red China and North Korea are the strongest countries in the Communist world. North Korea is small but excellent; i.e., there has been almost 100% success for Communism in North Korea. Now it is a Cain country. The Cain camp was laid.
Then, in order to cope with this Cain camp, God has to prepare His camp. Now God sent the Third Adam and this country must be the Adam country. This country must be able to cooperate with Kim II-sung; this is South Korea. So it is Adam, and now Eve can be Japan. Both Adam and Eve have a longer history than America. Korea has a history of 4300 years and Japan 2600 years. But, truth is truth, Korea was born anew and Japan also, from the satanic side to God's side. Baby Adam and baby Eve must be protected by the Angel. The Angel must be older and must be strong enough to cope with Satan, Russia, and must be able to overcome Russia and must be a God-centered country. What country do you think is qualified to be the Archangel country? America! So they can fulfill their mission centered on God. If America retreats from Asia and doesn't fulfill her mission, then America herself will be invaded by Satan, Communism. President Nixon did good, but Nixon's doctrine was not that good; it was ruinous, even to America. Then now, if centered on God, three nations must be united into oneness.
In the satanic camp, there has been one ideology to have dominion over the world-Communism. Even though they have troubles, in an emergency Communists may reunite. They still have a strong desire to have dominion over the world. In Cambodia, the situation is very terrible! It is almost communized. In order to overcome Communism, the key point is the unity between Adam and Eve and the Angel, but they are doing their own things. They have a common purpose; therefore, they need a common ideology to give a common purpose and effort and unity. If they are given a common purpose, they can realize the kingdom of God, so they can start their mission and unite into oneness and overcome the Cain camp.
Then, what kind of truth can do that? Only Divine Principle and its application can. It doesn't always mean all people in Korea, all people in Japan, and all people in America must understand the Divine Principle, because it's better that they don't rebel against the Lord of the Second Advent. It is better for them, because God is just concerned with not committing sin anymore.
If the central figure of Communism is taken away, then the dictatorship will be destroyed and there will be so much confusion in the Communist countries and also in the free nations. In Red China there are many troubles, the same for North Korea. In Japan, there are two kinds of leftist parties fighting each other. The Abel-kind is winning great victory. If the Communist countries disintegrate, there will be confusion. This is the end of the world and everything should be indemnified to start anew. This is the reason why there are so many confusions at the end of the world.
New Light will appear from the East showing the direction to all mankind. America should go this way, the world should go this way. Based on deep truth, the sinless Messiah will appear and show the direction to all mankind. If the leaders of the world obey him, they will be united very soon and after the victory of the Third Seven-year Course, the world will be involved in a newly-established Messianic movement. Towards the end of the 20th century, a new world will begin and the kingdom of God on earth will appear at the end of this century. Finally, the perfection stage worldwide foundation for the Messiah will be laid, after victory over Communism.
Cain must be subjugated by Abel. This is the mission of VOC or FLF. FLF's mission is to lay the final foundation for the Messiah. Upon this foundation, the Messiah can stand as the True Parents of all mankind, through whom all mankind can be born anew. With tears of repentance, all mankind can come to him and he will give the forgiveness of sins, and will give sinless marriage and family and the kingdom of God will start on earth, and the Book of Revelations will be fulfilled.
As the Bible says, Revelations 21:5-7, "I saw a new heaven and a new earth; for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and the sea was no more. And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband; and I heard a great voice from the throne saying, 'Behold, the dwelling of God is with men. He will dwell with them, and they shall be his people and God Himself will be with them; fire will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning nor crying nor pain any more, for the former things have passed away.' "And he who sat upon the throne said, 'Behold, I make all things new.' Also, he said, 'Write this, for these words are trustworthy and true.' And he said to me, 'It is done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and the end. To the thirsty I will give water without price from the fountain of the water of life. He who conquers shall have this heritage, and I will be his God, and he shall be My son."
Revelations 21:22, "And I saw no temple in the city, for the temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine upon it, for the glory of God is its light, and its lamp is the Lamb."
And God and sinless Father are the sun and the moon. All mankind can be brothers and sisters, beyond race and tradition.
Revelations 22:16-17, "I, Jesus, have sent my angel to you with this testimony for the churches. I am the root and offspring of David, the bright morning star."
"The Spirit and the Bride say, 'Come.' And let him who hears say, 'Come,' and let him who is thirsty come. Let him who desires take the water of life without price."
Revelations 22:20, "He who testifies to these things says, 'Surely I am coming soon.' Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!"
This book has now come true and the kingdom of God will be fulfilled very soon if only we can fulfill our portion of responsibility with great faith.
