Chapter 2 The Unification Movement in Korea






Church Holy Days and Historical Ceremonies

(Foundation Day for the Nation of the Unified World)



Foundation Day for the nation of the Unified World was declared on October 3, 1988, in Yongin, Kyung-gi Province, Korea. It was the day from which the earthly world and the heavenly world began to be unified, having the meaning of the "opening of the day of hope."

"With this time of the opening of heaven, the individual door opens to the national level and, further, to the worldwide level; then the fortune of Korea will spread throughout the world.

What is today? [Foundation Day for the Nation of the Unified World!] Yes. Today is the day when the meeting point of all providential conditions that make possible the declaration of a unified country of the world, a unified world, or the Foundation Day for the Nation of the Unified World, is perfectly positioned in relation to every direction, and marks the fulfillment of this both in theory and in reality from the perspective of Unification Church history. We may also say that the day of hope is dawning.

First is the beginning of the unification of Korea and japan.

Second is that of America, Korea, Germany and Soviet Union. Next is the emergence of a unified world through American Christianity and the Korean Unification Church. This is the third point.

Fourth is the unification of the Christian cultural sphere, the spirit-affirming sphere, which is Abel, with the materialist sphere of the communist world.

What is the fifth point? That is the unity of the earthly world and the heavenly world.

Sixth is the fulfillment of the responsibility of providential indemnity. I am saying that the responsibility of providential indemnity has been fulfilled. With the accomplishment of this responsibility, the perfected family finally begins. Because, on the foundation of Satan's world, the perfected family system and also that of the tribe, race, nation and world, has appeared, there is no further reason for Satan's existence as such. This signifies the emergence of a liberated world.

Seventh is therefore the beginning of the Kingdom of Heaven on earth.

Eighth is the promise of the realization of the Kingdom of Heaven on earth and in heaven, in the family, nation, world. This means a unified ideal world of love finally unfolding in heaven and on earth."
