Power Of World Peace Pilgrimage

Now is the time for us to rekindle our faith. This is the moment in history that God has been preparing for. The fourth Israel has now been created on the foundation of the blessing of Muslims, Christians and Jews who know the Living God in their hearts. These leaders throughout the world are coming together.

At the closing banquet of the IIFWP Conference an incredible moment occurred that demonstrates the power of the Pilgrimages to Israel. I was asked to introduce our Middle East Peace Initiative by Dr. Walsh and to recognize the key leaders that have been working in Israel. I introduced our key leaders such as Dr. Betancourt, Bishop Stallings, Dr. Abe, Dr. Eliezar Glaubach and Mr. Hod Ben Zvi. Early as we sat together at dinner we were having a most serious discussion. Jews and Arabs at the table. Our Ambassador for Peace in Palestine is Imam Muhammad Jodeh who as a Palestinian has opened so many doors in Gaza and Ramallah (he just built a new home in Ramallah). He is a true Ambassador for Peace. He was crying out at our table over the situation in Gaza now. Dr. Glaubach comforted him and said its true the violence and the horror must stop. Then he said Imam Jodeh, that's why we are here, I have come to trust you and love you.

Dr. Jodeh had tears in his eyes saying "I want the suffering to stop". That's why I am here. I know that this is the only movement that can stop it. I love you too Eliezar - we must stick together. Dr. Glaubach said I believe that the spiritual way we are going is changing everything - that's why I we will stay together as brothers. (Dr. Glaubach and Imam Jodeh just recently made speeches of reconciliation on the stage at the National Hall before a distinquished body of 1500 Jewish digniataries and our Ambassadors for Peace. (This event was at the "Lincoln Center" of Israel - it was a Night for A Culture of Peace" with Classical Perfoming Artist David D'or). It was a night like no other. There in front of the mostly Jewish guests, Imam Jodeh and Dr. Glaubach embraced each other and spoke that they could not always embrace in previous days. They were enemies. But this movement of IIFWP has transformed their hearts. Now they embrace - but it is for real !!! The audience cheered at that instant. The yearning for Ishmael and Isaac to come together is profound. No one can imagine that just a simple embrace of brothers could have such and effect. But remember Jacon and Esau and how God himself must have let out a huge sigh of relieve when the two brothers could love each other.

This is what happened again at the closing banquet of the IIFWP Conference. It was just before Rev. Kwak's concluding keynote speech. As I was concluding my presentation I introduced Imam Jodeh and two Jewish Knesset members who had come with us. I asked them to embrace one another. This was not simple. Imam Jodeh was just in tears moments before about the suffering, yet the love he experienced with his brother Eliezar gave him strength from Allah. He stood up and to everyone's surprise he not only embraced his Jewish brothers from the political world but also asked them to join him on the stage. It was an amazing moment in history. They were touched and they came with him onto the stage and with Dr. Jodeh in the middle they raised their joined hands together in triumph. Everyone was shocked. It was very profound. It was the living reality that Father Moon has created the Peace UN - it is real and it has the real power to transform the people. The three brothers stood there together in triumph - they had defeated the evil that divides us and for that moment came together from the heart. Afterwards Dr. Jodeh and the Knessett member shared. Dr. Jodeh said please come to Ramallah my brother and have dinner with me. The Jewish leader said - "I would love too - I miss Ramallah. I used to go there and see my friends. I miss being able to see them. Please come to my home - Dr. Jodeh said - next week !!!

The Senator from Vanuatu gave a closing testimony and commented that he himself was deeply touched by this moment. He said, "I couldn't believe my eyes. When I saw these brothers setting aside so much historic animosity and coming together. I tell you - this would never happen at the UN. It isn't possible - but I saw it happen here. Everyone could feel that this is the movement that will change the Middle East.

The weeping and the wailing are about to end. Not only in the division between Palestine and Israel but also the weeping and wailing that goes on between divided families of North and South Korea.

Taj Hammad one of the key leaders of this movement of Peace commented the next morning. The Peace UN has the power - it is now being revealed through the Pilgrimages in the Holy Land. People couldn't believe their eyes. Many who attended the conference is Seoul were former Prime Ministers and Ambassadors many of whom had witnessed countless times the situation in the UN where such reconciliation does not occur. Some commented that usually when one brother speaks all the others leave. They don't want to be in the same room. But the peace UN dissolves that. It heals the heart of the suffering of humanity and opens the way to comfort God.

Revelation 21 2 - 3: And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
