Section 2. Judgment and Approval (Certification)

2.1. Categories of Judgment

God knows that the way of the Principle cannot be walked without loving one's enemies. Would God let humanity perish in the judgment of the Last Days? No. He is the Parent of humankind. The so-called judgment by fire spoken of in Christianity today is not a literal one. (31-165, 1970.5.24)

Between teachers and students, there are rules for teachers to observe and rules for students to observe. Likewise, in the Unification Church, there are rules that I should observe, and rules that you should observe. Therefore you who hear the Word are subject to judgment by the Word. If you hear it wrongly, you will be judged.

Then, what activities should we undertake next? We are to realize substance. That being the case, if we fail to undertake activities that substantiate the Word, there will be a judgment of substance. There is judgment by the word, judgment of substance, and judgment of heart. We must undergo the three great processes of judgment.

First, the word of the Principle will judge you and after that, you will be subjected to the judgment of substance. Who will judge? Those who substantiated the word by working hard in fundraising and witnessing, and who followed all the rules, they will judge you. Those who worked hard will judge you; that is judgment. If you do not follow the Word, even Satan will judge you and others will accuse you. I will judge Unification Church members; the Unification Church leaders will judge them, and those who followed the will of the Unification Church will judge them.

What way should you go? First you are recognized by family members in the satanic world, then by me. After that, you go to God in the spirit world. That is the way to go, by the way of the law. Going that way is the right direction. If there are any conditions for accusation, they will join forces to accuse you in the flesh. It will be a judgment of substance. Will lies work in that situation? Doing something unwillingly is like not doing it at all. If you do it thinking of God and Father, their essence will be embedded inside your shell, like a fully mature chestnut embedded inside the burr. When you think of God and me dwelling in your heart, my words and God's Word will become your core.

Unification Church members should become people whom God, I, and other members can welcome. So you must be like the kernel of the chestnut when the burr is cracked open. We should live for God and True Parents. That is what you are to do. If you wish to live for the sake of God and True Parents after going to the spirit world, your lifestyle on earth should be in step with that kind of life. That is how harmony is achieved.

For this reason, you should go through a process of passing the fearful judgment of substance. That is the law. On that day, a foundation of heart will automatically come into being. When you work hard fundraising and witnessing, why do people persecute and accuse you? That experience allows you to find heart, a heart you did not have, and to find love. It happens so that you can love such people.

Without undergoing such a training course, however much you try to become heavenly people, you will not make it. In other words, you should find love greater than that in the satanic world. Otherwise you cannot go to heaven. We are trying to go to heaven by finding love and only those who have found love can go there.

Who will be the Lords of judgment at that time? God, Jesus, and I will be the Lords of Judgment. Therefore you should put these things into practice. You should know that this is the task we are confronting and it is God's command. (103.236, 1979.3.1)

2.2. Prepare a passport to Heaven

The final judgment day will come for everyone. In order to establish the ultimate ideal world in the midst of the satanic world, you should have gone through all kinds of experiences and be able to pass the test given at the time of judgment.

You need a passport to heaven. There should be many individuals, families, and nations who can receive this passport. To be entrusted by heaven and earth, a nation with this passport must exist for God. That is the original ideal of creation.

This passport will expel Satan. He will be unable to come to you, or to interfere in your daily life. If you wish to free yourself from his interference, you should separate yourself from him. You should separate as individuals, families, tribes, people, nations, the world, and the cosmos. In the Unification Principle, you learned about the history of separating from Satan. How must it be done? It must be done through the way of indemnity.

Scholars or presidents are no exception. The way of indemnity is one that must be sought, not taught. You must seek it yourselves. Those who do not do this will go to hell. You must understand that the chains of hell are hooked all over your eyes, your nose, and your thoughts. This is not a threat; it is simply that indemnity is needed to reverse the Fall.

It is so difficult to erase ink from a white sheet of paper. What Satan wrote is more difficult to erase than ink. If you wish to erase it, you must be revived after dying. Realize that "although you have the name of being alive, yet you are dead." As long as hooks remain within you, Satan will claim you as his. Thus, Jesus stated: "Those who seek to die will live, and those who seek to live will die. (129-183, 1983.10.30)

Since there are saints and sages and great people like Jesus, Confucius, and Buddha in the spirit world, by what accord will you ascend there? Also, there will be many martyrs there who died during the period of persecution in Rome, and many other people who were sacrificed for the public cause. Then, how can you go up there, what will you need? Just to join a platoon in the U.S. Army, you need a certificate. So can you just step up and ascend to that lofty place called the spirit world?

In the world beyond time and space where many hundreds of billions are gathered watching you, are you confident that you will be welcomed? In the spirit world, there is no distance. They will be watching you ascend. How can you go up there? In order to pass through to that place, you need a certificate. Without it, you cannot pass through. Can you go there saying, "I'm going to bring my doctorate in literature"? In the spirit world, it has even less value than toilet paper.

Why are we trying to go to the spirit world by going through opposition from this fallen, evil world? It is to receive a certificate. This is not something secular. If I had gone out into the world, I would have attained success to the extent that I would envy no one. I am a man of such abilities. (146-330, 1986.8.10)

Jesus inherited the heavenly kingdom, but not the world. Then who inherited the world? Cain. Therefore, the world is Cain's domain. For this reason, once Abel inherits the heavenly kingdom, he should receive a certificate issued and guaranteed by Cain who belongs to the world. To enter heaven, you need to obtain a certificate from Satan.

Fallen people are caught between these two rules governing heaven and earth. As they have not been resolved, history has been prolonged and repeated through the past six thousand years. Nevertheless, we have now come to understand this. In the Bible it is written, "You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free." As we now know the answer, we must love even if we have to clench our teeth. To what level must we love? We must love even Cain who is our enemy. (34-277, 1970.9.13)

Since the Fall took place, not in God's presence, but with Satan as subject, we must subjugate Satan in order to free ourselves from its realm. We must be able to say and claim before Satan, "Satan, you wretch! I am where I am now because of you. I will subjugate you and return to God!" If you do not obtain the certification that you subjugated Satan, you cannot receive God's love.

Jesus, too, was victorious in overcoming the three great temptations. We cannot go to heaven without obtaining Satan's signature that we were historically victorious. No matter what, we must obtain Satan's signature. When Jesus overcame Satan's three great temptations, Satan acknowledged tearfully, "You are eternally different from me." (24-336, 1969.9.14)

To subjugate Cain, we must love him all the way to the end. Without being such people, we cannot save Cain. To go to heaven, we must obtain Satan's certificate. What is Satan's certificate? In order for a criminal to be released, he must first go through a prosecutor, then an attorney, and finally a judge. From this perspective, Satan is like the prosecutor, God the judge, and Jesus is the attorney. If Satan ensnares a person saying, "You did this and this, did you not?" and says to God, "This person should be dealt with in this way," God's hands are tied. But Jesus, in the position of an attorney would say, "Heavenly Father, this person's ancestors did such and such things and he is from a good lineage. Since he is accused on these counts, he should be given an indemnity condition related to his crimes so he can be freed from accusation." This is what has been happening.

Hence, if you want to go to heaven, you must get Satan's certificate. Without getting a certificate that we loved Satan, we can never go to heaven. That is what the Unification Church is doing.

Normally we treat those who oppose us as enemies. Instead, we should love them, even though it is stifling. We must love our enemies and pray for them to have good fortune. We have no choice. Unless Cain and Abel become one, there will be no restoration, and you cannot return to your Parent. (48-316, 197I-916)

Christianity has passed through a history of seeking the true olive tree, while innumerable people have pioneered a miserable destiny throughout the ages. The true olive tree refers to the son of God. Once he comes, you must receive his sap as well as engrafting onto one of his branches. All conditions left unresolved in history, the failures of all our ancestors through the ages who could not overcome the indemnity conditions presented by Satan, will be resolved at that point. You should be engrafted, not from a foundation of fertile soil or a warm shelter, but from ground that is rough and stony. That is because you must receive from Satan a certificate that you can become God's child, since you have been equipped with the original nature that has not existed in the satanic world until now. It is not something that God gives. If it had been up to God, He would have issued this six thousand years ago.

The judge does not approve your release from prison. Who will? The prosecutor gives his approval. In this court, the prosecutor is Satan. Without obtaining the endorsement of the prosecutor in court, you cannot be released. Without Satan's approval, God does not say, "You are my child. Let me save you!" You must absolutely get Satan's approval. Have you received Satan's release or not? You must get it.

What does the Unification Church teach? It teaches the way to obtain Satan's approval. You must not only get a spiritual approval, but also a substantial one that combines both the spirit and the flesh. (17-424, 1966.12.11)

You cannot obtain a passport to heaven just like that. A doctorate obtained merely by sitting through classes without passing a test or writing a dissertation would be a fake. Even in the Unification Church there are real members and fake ones. You become real members only after fulfilling the right standard. (129-185, 1983.10.30)

You cannot go to heaven simply because you have a clean and pure heart. You need to go through procedures in order to enter heaven. In order to be registered, you need a license, don't you? However much you may insist that you are an absolutely pure person, you cannot just go to heaven. There are formalities to go through.

The visa and documentation procedures for entering the United States, in its current state of decline, are very complicated. Yet it is more complicated for us to enter heaven than to enter America. You must complete all the legal procedures. You need to learn that.

Therefore, this is not the Unification Church, but the unification university. It is the University of Heaven. All the instructions that I have given on earth become the conditions for entering the other world. Not being able to fulfill these conditions means not being able to go there.

Upon hearing this, some might wonder if I am only giving instructions without having done anything. However, whatever instructions I give, I have already accomplished them myself. I would not ask you to do these things before I put them into practice. Why? As the True Parent, I must teach you. There is no one with whom I can discuss these matters. I cannot discuss the providence for restoration with the president of the United States. Dr. Durst is here, but I cannot discuss the matter with him. If I did, the archangel would accuse me. The archangel is the ringleader who caused human beings to fall. Hence, other than God and me, no one knows about these things. (46-335, 1986.8.10)

Now the Unification Church will surmount the global peak. Now no one can destroy the Unification Church. No one can send me to prison. You should not just be busy with married life and giving birth to children. You should be busy preparing a certificate that will let you enter heaven. You do not know when you will die. Who knows when you will be involved in an auto accident and go to the spirit world? All kinds of things occur. So, you never know when you may have to go to the spirit world.

From now on if you as Blessed Family members went to the spirit world while you were enjoying your own personal lives, having fun and neglecting to prepare yourselves to go to the spirit world, could you come before Rev. Moon of the Unification Church? Blessed families did not yet reach the global level because they are at the perfection level of the growth stage. Since they are at the top of the growth stage, they must go on to the global level. Since that course remains, Blessed Families must go through it. Even though I made all the preparations for you to go to the spirit world, if you are still doing nothing, how miserable you will be!

I am not an incapable person. My personality is such that I will not let myself be defeated by anyone. I do not like being trampled upon by anyone, but I have lived such a life. I do not enjoy opposition, but I have lived a life facing it. Because of this, I clearly know the path that you who have joined the Unification Church must walk. You must quickly transcend the nation and the world. Are you busy with married life taking care of household chores, or are you busy making preparations to go to the spirit world?

I am now living in rhythm with the spirit world; everybody must live in step with the spirit world. When Unification Church members go to the spirit world, you will be questioned at the gates on the conditions I have taught you to fulfill. Everything I have taught up to the present time will be written down as conditions. If you cannot answer to them, you will not be able to get in. You will have to wait in the middle realm of the spirit world for me to come. You may wish for my prompt arrival but even when I do go to spirit world, not all of you can enter the realm where I will go. (116-335, 1986.8.10)

My slogan is, "Let us kick out the devil!" Satan is the villain who has made countless people suffer throughout history. Let us take the position of a prosecutor ourselves, relentlessly accusing Satan of all the evil deeds that he has committed in front of God, the judge of justice and righteousness. We should become the prosecutor and accuse the devil, Satan. Then, will Satan surrender to the prosecutor or not? There will be no attorney available to him, but to humankind there will be one.

Jesus is working as an attorney in the spirit world. As such, he would say, "This person performed good deeds believing in my name. Heavenly Father, is it not true, based on an agreement made between You and the devil, that the devil cannot take someone who strove to be good, someone who observed the public laws? Is that not true?" Then God would say, "Yes, it is true".

The devil cannot take people who are placed in a position of goodness in Jesus' name, which is why people are told to believe in Him. But can you go to heaven just by unconditionally believing in Him? I went to the spirit world and saw many scenes in which famous ministers were kneeling down in hell, saying, "I did not realize that Rev. Moon was such a person!" This sounds like a dream, but the teacher you are following is such a person. He is a leader with a deep, theoretical understanding of the higher dimensional world which surpasses this five-dimensional world. Those who want to follow me need to understand these things. (149-98, 1986.11.17)

We must have a nation. You have your own nations, but the nation to which we are going is a different one. Without receiving the officially recognized citizenship of this new nation, one cannot enter heaven. However much he may want to, Satan cannot accuse people with a certified citizenship. He cannot accuse them from any direction whether north, south, east, or west, or any era -- past, present, or future. (148-2843, 1986.10.23)
