Chairman, Universal Peace Federation

Address to the World Peace Tour of the Universal Peace Federation

Distinguished guests; leaders from all fields; Ambassadors for Peace; and blessed families:

Welcome to this solemn occasion dedicated to the establishment of God's Ideal Family and Peace Kingdom, that is, a universal homeland of eternal peace for all humanity, a realm that encompasses all of heaven and earth under God!

Thank you for participating in this historic World Peace Tour of the Universal Peace Federation.

On this day, we will receive the message of Rev. Sun Myung Moon. This is no ordinary message and he is no ordinary man. This message is a textbook for our lives, and a roadmap to lasting peace. Moreover, his life is a model for our lives. Please do not look at today's event externally or superficially as merely a social or academic event. Today's event brings us into a direct encounter with God's Word, God's Blessing and God's Providence of Restoration.

The purpose of God's Providence of Restoration is to completely restore the Fall of Adam and Eve, and to establish God's ideal family worldwide. According to God's original will, Adam and Eve were to have grown to become God's true son and daughter, and the True Parents of humanity. However, due to their Fall, they did not fulfill their responsibility as True Parents and God's will was not realized at that time. Furthermore, as the descendants of Adam and Eve, all human beings have inherited a fallen nature.

At this time in God's providence, Father and Mother Moon have restored the position of the True Parents. With God as the incorporeal, vertical True Parent, Father and Mother Moon stand in the position of the corporeal, horizontal True Parents -- the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind. True Parents manifest God's original ideal of the true parent, true teacher, true owner and true king. They are fulfilling God's providence to establish the universal peace kingdom, centered on true love, true life and true lineage. Therefore, without exception, each of us must be reborn and engrafted into the lineage of God through the True Parents.

In January of 2001, True Father offered the Coronation Ceremony for God's Kingship in order to open the way for a peaceful, ideal world. He then connected this heavenly fortune to the history of God's providence to establish the Kingdom of the Peaceful Ideal World. On June 13 of this year, he brought this providence to a victorious conclusion with the opening of the Cheon Jeong Goong Peace Palace and through the Coronation Ceremony of the King of Cosmic Peace.

The realization of a peaceful, ideal world is the hope of humankind and the ideal God has been seeking since the time of the Creation. Such a world begins from a true family centered on God's true love. True Father's sacrifice and all his remarkable and miraculous achievements throughout his life have been dedicated to the purpose of laying a foundation, substantially, for the realization of this ideal.

For example, True Father has tirelessly invested himself in promoting inter-religious dialogue, reconciliation and cooperation for the sake of God's providence and world peace. He also launched and maintained numerous humanitarian relief and service activities to alleviate human suffering. He led the way in contributing to the end of the Cold War Era, by providing the essential critique and counterproposal to materialistic communist ideology. For the sake of peace, he founded federations that bring together the peoples of island nations, peninsula nations, and continental nations, as well all peoples of Mongolian descent.

By establishing the Universal Peace Federation -- which has its roots in the Inter-religious and International Federation for World Peace -- he created a movement to build an "Abel-UN," a God-centered UN-type organization guided by the principle of living for the sake of others, and dedicated to building a world of everlasting peace. He has also initiated the "Peace Kingdom Police Force" and "Peace Kingdom Corps" to carry out peace-building activities worldwide.

Aside from these initiatives, Rev. Moon has built a diverse international foundation in the fields of education, culture, the arts, sports and industry. These remarkable accomplishments have all been carried out for the fulfillment of God's will and to realize the ultimate hope of humankind for an ideal world characterized by freedom, peace, unity and happiness. Most fundamentally, since 1960, he has led a global movement to establish true families, centered on absolute values and true love. To this end, he carried out thousands of inter-cultural exchange Marriage Blessing Ceremonies for millions and millions of couples worldwide -- -including people of every race, religion, nationality, culture and ethnic background -- -promoting a universal culture of heart among all human beings.

The internal and fundamental prerequisite for the realization of a peaceful, ideal world is the establishment of an ideal family that manifests God's original and unchanging ideal of true love and true family. This heavenly ideal was to have been established within Adam's family at the outset of human history. That is, God's true love, true life and true lineage were to have been securely and perfectly established on earth and horizontally expanded through the three generations of Adam and Eve, their children and grandchildren. Due to the Fall of the first human ancestors, God has had to endure tremendous sorrow. God has never been able to embrace His own true grandsons and granddaughters.

On September 12, 2005, True Father inaugurated the Universal Peace Federation and immediately embarked on an inaugural World Peace Tour that took him to 120 nations. Shortly thereafter in 2006, True Mother, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, together with many of True Parents' thirteen children, carried out a second World Peace Tour, proclaiming the heavenly way and bringing the national-level Marriage Blessing to 180 nations.

On the foundation of the two World Peace Tours, True Parents blessed four of their grandchildren on August 28, 2006, fully establishing the foundation of victory for God's ideal of a True Family of three generations, centered on true love. Now, beginning on August 31 in Korea, three generations of the True Parents' family are carrying out this third World Peace Tour. In each nation, on every day of the tour, 12 members of the True Family -- -parents, children and grandchildren -- -will go out, each to a different city, to deliver the Founder's Address.

Today's event is a historic rally for the purpose of passing on to each of you and to your nation, the foundation of cosmic victory by which God's vertical true love ideal has been fully established on earth through the perfection of the family ideal over the course of three generations.

Respected leaders, Ambassadors for Peace and blessed families:

By your attendance at today's program, you are able to reap the benefits of God's providence at this time, receiving so much grace and heavenly fortune. This is made possible by the fact that we are alive at the same time as the True Parents. This is a time of great hope, a time when the ideals that humanity has longed to realize throughout the course of history may be fulfilled.

Let us become the leading force in realizing a kingdom of cosmic peace. Let us determine to allow the words that we hear today serve as the essential guidebook for our life. Let us follow the path of true love that True Parents have opened, and, together, build a world of universal peace.

May God's blessing be with each of you, your family and your nation.

Thank you very much.
