Way Of Unification - Part 2

Section 4. Blessed Wives Mobilization And North-South Unification (Part 1)
1. Mobilization-Related Prediction
1) Significance of the First, Second, and Third Mobilization
The 1960s was a pioneering time by appointing women to represent an individual. The 1970s is the time of family-level restoration through indemnity. What remains to be restored? It is not religion that needs to be restored; the nation must walk an indemnity path. Therefore, everyone again needs to be mobilized. At that time, it is not only you who will be mobilized. Husbands, parents, sons, and daughters all have to be mobilized. Everyone must know that time still remains. (38:278)
In the 1960s, women stood on the front line representing individual. (40:101)
The Unification Church has now mobilized women twice. The first time women were mobilized on the front line was in the 1960s. I talked about the necessity of women working on the front line for three years, didn't I? (Yes.) This time again, women have been mobilized for three years. After that, women will be mobilized again for three years. Thus, there will be a total of nine years of hardship. Everyone needs to determine themselves. (38:49)
You must realize that there are three stages of pioneering courses for women -- formation, growth, and completion. Why is that so? God carried out His restoration providence centered on three men in the last 6,000 years, and it was to liberate women. Men have been indemnifying vertically, and women must indemnify horizontally. That means that vertical indemnity has to be carried out horizontally.
Likewise, God's providence of restoration on the levels of individual, family, tribe, people, and nation goes through three stages. Therefore, in a national restoration course, unless the woman goes through three stages of a pioneering course, the restoration principle cannot be substantiated. You must clearly understand this point. (36:153)
Women have to work hard for the nation. What are you working for now? You are working for your family, aren't you? If you received the Blessing from the Unification Church, you should work for Abel's nation, not for your family. You must work for the Republic of Korea. You must go through three stages: formation stage of the women's operation era, growth stage of the women's operation era, and completion stage of the women's operation era. The purpose of this is to complete individual restoration, reciprocal relationships, and the multiplication of goodness. Multiplication of goodness requires a national standard. If children of goodness cannot be multiplied and there is no nation that can overcome the satanic world, you must know that the mission of the restoration of three generations of women remains to be fulfilled. (37:267)
2) Prediction of the Third Mobilization for North-South Unification
Kim It Sung is called "Father" in North Korea, isn't he? (Yes.) In the Unification Church, you call me "Father," don't you? (Yes.) A father is a father; but there is a real father and a false father. It means that there is a Cain-type father and an Abel-type father. One is the Adam-type, and the other is the archangel-type. Who caused the archangel to drive away Adam? It was caused by Eve. A false father was born due to a woman. Isn't that so?
Therefore, in the course of individual restoration, first women were called out and had to overcome in the individual course of restoration. Next, the second mobilization was called to restore a family and enter an era of family restoration. To open a gate of family restoration, wives had to stand up. So, Blessed family wives were mobilized this time. Do you understand? What, then, is the third mobilization? It is for the sake of the nation. To unify Korea and stand up at the 38th parallel, many families in South Korea have to be called out to the front line. (37:266, December 22, 1970)
Now that we are moving from the individual level to the family level, women centered on families are mobilized. Now is an era of family-level restoration through indemnity centered on women. Do you understand? The era of national-level restoration through indemnity, to be accomplished by women centered on the 38th parallel as the third mobilization, remains. Therefore, from now on, women in South Korea will set the foundation for victory. (37:266, December 27, 1970)
The mobilization for which you were called out was the second mobilization. The third is for the unification of North and South. When established churches join in, their women membership will be mobilized for the unification of North and South. That day is sure to come.
In one way, it is advantageous to mobilize rather small numbers of people at the family level. However, in the era of the unification of North and South, mobilization must be on the national level. That time will surely come, and we must make sure it will come. Thus, you will be mobilized again. The time will come when you will go to the world and establish a foundation for the realm of heavenly women who can lead people in the world. (36:152, November 25, 1970)
Up to now, men accomplished their responsibility in a vertical historical era. However, in a horizontal historical era, women, by pioneering, can stand as reciprocators before the men who have accomplished vertical responsibilities. Do you understand?
If this is not so, with what contribution before God can women stand as an object before the men? Now is the time. The thinking of Unification Church women will become the traditional way of thinking of all women in the Republic of Korea. Therefore, it has to be planted correctly. Otherwise, it will have an adverse effect. Do you understand? If women of established churches, wives of 30 million people, wives of the president and government officials, are determined they can liberate Korea. (62:262, September 25, 1972)
3) Mobilization Prediction by Chung Kam Rok
I cannot remember when, but after finishing a lunch, there was a discussion about what Chung Kam Rok [Korean book of prophecy] had predicted: what had been fulfilled and not fulfilled, and so on. It has many aspects, including events that happened 40 years ago and also about Dr. Lee (President Lee). In a final topic of prediction, there was a story that if a woman worked, profit would be tenfold, but if a man worked, he would gain only the cost. (Laughter.) There is such a story in it. Every prediction was fulfilled, but this was not solved. This time, having heard of a mobilization order by the Unification Church, one well-known university professor came to hear my speech about the significance of the mobilization of women. After hearing the speech, it was said that the professor was very joyful and said, "Oh! It is now solved." What did he mean by that?
It means that now is the time when if a woman works, the profit will be tenfold. I know it to be true. I know this not because I have studied Chung Kam Rok but through heavenly principle. It is destined, and now is the time. Therefore, a mobilization should be called. (166:264)
2. Woman's Position In The Course Of Restoration
1) The Result of Eve's Fall
Isn't that so? Next, true parents were forfeited, true husband and wife, with true children to follow. Think about how much was forfeited by the Fall. Think about how awful woman's situation is. Next, true love, the true family, the true clan, the true people, the true nation, the true world, heaven, and spirit world were all forfeited. How many stages is that? It's twelve stages, isn't it? All were forfeited. Woman has so many sins. Is woman supposed to be praised in history, or is she to go through severe hardships? To be born as a woman is to bear many sins. All these things need to be taken care of (39:107)
Because a woman fell fundamentally, fundamental restoration has to be carried out. That is why women have experienced a path of suffering. To open the gate of servant, of adopted son, son and daughter, they went through a path of suffering in history. (23:287)
By Eve's fall alone, the relationships with God, parents, relatives, clan, son and daughter, and spouse were cut off. In an attempt to restore at once all that was lost due to Eve's fall, Blessed families were mobilized to stand on the front line. By doing so, God will pay attention to you, and Father and Mother, your relatives, your husband and sons and daughters, will all pay attention to you. This is the time of having a unified heart and of resolving resentment; thus, you should know that I must mobilize you to the front line. (38:291)
Fallen Eve caused two men to perish on her left side, Lucifer, and on her right side, Adam. Isn't it so? Eve, who is women's ancestor, caused such sin. Therefore, having been mobilized to the front line, you must resolve the failure of Eve. who caused the termination of historical tradition. (38:266)
Mobilizing Blessed wives in the Unification Church to the front line means that Eve, on behalf of Heaven, takes the lead in assuming full responsibility. In the course of restoration history, a central woman resolves the failure of the two men that was caused by Eve. Upon the resolution of these, she will be restored completely for the first time. (40:209)
Because all four-position foundations were lost due to woman's fall, all things that were lost need to be restored centered on one woman. This happened because Eve placed Lucifer as her husband. Now a woman has to restore that by serving a man on the heavenly side, a restored man. This is the family-level indemnity period that a family has to overcome. Knowing that you have this exorbitant mission on your shoulders, you must dedicate yourself in a position of being one with Father. Do you understand? (43:267)
2) Jesus, Woman, and Mobilization
What position are you in now? You are in the position of one who could not fulfill her mission at the time of Jesus, and you are to restore it. You are in the position of Jesus' elder sister and younger sister, from the viewpoint centering on the time of Jesus. Do you understand?
Jesus' death was due to a woman's failure. The facts indicate this. Mary failed to fulfill her mission, which was to find a bride for Jesus. If only Mary had accomplished her mission, things would have been different. She should have dedicated herself to Jesus totally, even just for three years from the time of his conception, and not worried about Joseph, even if he should die. Thus, first, woman could not accomplish her responsibility as a mother; second, as a bride; and third, as a servant. Woman could not accomplish these three responsibilities. Why did Jesus speak with a woman from Samaria? Jesus put her in a position of a servant and spoke with her. Having lost his mother and not found his bride, Jesus went to a servant to ask for water. This servant was not able to fulfill her responsibility, either. The Samaritan woman was a very low person, like a worn-out rag, even among the servants. However, what if she had heard Jesus' words, found life, and followed him? What would she be like? She could have been greater than Mary Magdalene. Everyone, have you thought about it? Had she done so, the Samaritan woman would have been in a greater position than Martha and Mary.
From this point of view, Jesus' death is due to woman. Woman should be mother, daughter, and servant-three stages. From the viewpoint of fallen Adam, Adam's wife is a servant. Eve fell and became a servant. Jesus was born through such a servant's body. (38:67)
The reason Jesus died on the cross is that 12, 70, and 120 disciples could not be mobilized completely. Jesus' disciples were not completely mobilized, not even once. They did not act as one with Jesus, so they perished. The Blessed couples of the Unification Church, having been given life, even though they have not accomplished much to a satisfactory level, should be in the same realm with me, with whom they share a destiny. In the mobilization, the central persons are wives. Therefore, I mobilized the wives of the families who received the Blessing.
3) The Position of Woman in the Last Days
Man is not the problem in the Last Days, but woman is. Woman is the problem. There is always a woman in a critical moment of failure or prosperity, and unexpected things will occur. Isn't that so? There was always a woman when something really perished. Don't you think the same thing can be said of today's world? All will perish due to women. Every nation is swayed by women.
"Eve" means "Come back after accomplishing restoration work." and "Adam" means "There is a dam." Man has to overcome a dam. Even if your head is aching and your sleeves are torn, you must overcome. If you thought this way, you would not be tired. As I just said, there is a dam in the way which the man goes. If Adam had thought about it in this manner, he would not have fallen. (55:230)
In the Last Days, works are done centered on woman. It is because woman fell first, but also because woman symbolizes fallen earth. Before the coming of the Unification Church, works had to be done that restored the vertical providence horizontally. Forty-some years prior to the coming of the Messiah, a bride's works appeared, centered on the bride who welcomes her bridegroom. Similarly, man's work was accomplished to establish one central person. All these things are done in three stages. The appearance of a woman claiming to be Jehovah's wife will be able to consummate the history of restoration. However, that person did not understand the providence. If this woman had done the work of the history of restoration through indemnity, two-thirds of her work would be God's work and one, third would be Satan's. Even though she was not told, she should have discerned with her purity and intellect, as well as a heart of loyalty and filial piety and a heart to pursue the truth. (17:348)
4) The Blessing Is for a Nation
What is the purpose of the Blessing in the Unification Church? What is the purpose of marriage? It is for the nation. (75:284)
You must realize the importance of the position you are in now. Heavenly Father, despite His heartache and disappointment, came this far seeking a family. For this reason, Heavenly Father blessed Unification Church families. Thus, the path those families should go is to seek a nation. Do you understand? (Yes.) The period in which recruiting is done in over 3,000 locations is our three-year witnessing period for the sake of the nation. (50:253)
Blessed families need to take responsibility for the nation. The individual's and family's desires are for the nation. To seek the nation, one's husband, wife, and children need to be sacrificed. Blessed couples' love for the nation should be deeper than their love for children and spouse. It cannot be less. You understand this, don't you? You should not think that your children are your only concern. If the nation perishes, Satan might throw out that child. (54:226)
It is okay to sympathize about a situation. However, this is necessary only after the prosperity of the nation. Do you understand? When a nation's existence is in question, how can I think of leading you to a happy life? (69:230)
It is very peaceful to look at the believers of the Unification Church. However, we should not be in that position. We must pioneer a path to the world, walking with the coming Messiah on the levels of individual, family, clan, people, and nation. Wasn't that the path which people should have accomplished at the time of Jesus? Having joined the Unification Church, you are also in the same path. You must love the church. How much should you love it? You must love it with greater love than Jesus' relatives and disciples had for him. Do you understand what I am saying? Unless you do so, you will not be able to go to the Kingdom of Heaven.
You should not think that the church exists for you to achieve your objectives. This church is to save the nation. I am not sending you witnessing for the sake of the Unification Church. I am sending you witnessing to save the nation. Even if the nation turns its face toward God's Will, we should not think of saving it, but rather that the nation can sacrifice itself for the world. You must know this. (50:76)
It is okay for husband and wife to live joyfully, but what should their central thinking be? To live for the sake of the country. You cannot be joyful just because you are able to eat well and are happy. If you are joyful before the nation is, your joy can be judged by Satan. The present joy that you may have could be remembered as God's resentment and might remain as a condition of grief. Thus, your joy and happiness may not be so joyful and happy. Seek a nation first, and its families, clans, and peoples can celebrate in joy together at once in the country that God protects. Individual, family, clan, people, and nation all enjoy at the same time. The place in the horizontal realm where everyone can be joyful is the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. You need to understand this. Until that day, we cannot rest even though we want to and cannot be joyful even though we want to be. Although you enjoy now, unless you seek the nation, you will be persecuted by Satan and have to suffer. (56:282)
5) The Reason Korean Women Suffered
What did human beings lose by the human fall? We couldn't receive true love from our Father. Did we receive it? (We couldn't.) Then, we couldn't receive true love from a husband. What is next? (True love from an older brother.) We couldn't receive true love from an older brother. Who destroyed it? Who initiated that? It was a woman. It was Eve. Therefore, women throughout history had to suffer until they restored the lost love. It must be indemnified through women shedding tears, having experiencing the misuse of love. It must be indemnified through love. Women's tears were shed by misunderstanding love. Therefore, if there is a nation whose women were miserable and shed many tears, there is a very great possibility that the Messiah will come to that nation. It is very much a possibility that the Messiah will come to the nation whose women were abused by many men. (51:176)
Compared to the rest of the world, Korean women don't hang around outside but just stay at home and live a pure, quiet life. Men have to come through the fence and enter the house to seduce them. The Messiah will come to such a nation. Women who try to attract men belong to Satan's side. How about Korean women? Even though they just stayed home, they were tempted by men. Even though the daughter-in-law gave birth to three children, sons and daughters, when the father-in-law enters the room to eat, he will not let her eat a meal in the same room. I observed that situation. After she gives birth to three children and they grow up, she still has to eat at the kitchen table. She suffers so much. She lives like a servant. Since the day she got married, she has lived like a servant to the father-in-law and the mother-in-law, the husband, and the husband's younger brothers and sisters. Do you think they'll leave her alone, then? If she doesn't dress up, they criticize her for not dressing up at all. If she is beautiful, they criticize that she is too beautiful. She has to live like a servant from the very day she gets married. In this way, Korean women represent the world. Then, why does she have to go though that? Their husbands play the part of a satanic archangel. Eves have to look for the way their husbands are supposed to go in the future. So after they are married, they are only to serve their husbands. It is the way of indemnity. Therefore, Satan makes them suffer so much.
Even when we go to the spirit world, if we ask which women throughout the world suffered most, we get the answer, "It's Korean women." Such a thing is evil in one sense. However, one day when drought comes, water will come out from the deepest valley. There is much water in the deep valley even though the drought has come. In this sense, once Korean women go to the spirit world, they can say, "I suffered more than any other woman." Is that an unhappy thing? Does it seem an unhappy thing? (It is a happy thing.) Why? Among some humans, shouldn't the one who has been whipped and who shed blood until death be the one who is saved first by a helping hand? That is the right order. The person who wears clothes will be saved later. In the spirit world they change clothes. The person who was wounded and was most miserable, who could not wear clothes, now gets the best clothes first. The person who wore the best clothes will be the last to be changed spiritually. I'm sorry, but he'll be the last one. Therefore the Bible said, "The first shall be last and the last shall be first."
The first shall be? (The last.)
The last shall be? (The first.)
The high shall be? (The low.)
The low shall be? (The high.)
Those who seek to lose their life will gain it.
Those who seek to gain their life will lose it.
Therefore, I tell you to die.
Do you think such a teacher is wonderful? Do you feel bad? It will be so. (51:77)
Man needs woman, woman needs man. When God started His creation, why couldn't He give them the same rights and same position? It is because there is the principle of heaven and earth by which God created Adam and then Eve. Therefore, Eve can't go by herself before Adam perfects himself on the earth. Because woman reversed heavenly law and destroyed man, woman has to stay where she is until a man dissolves all resentment; then he can save woman. If woman escapes her present position, a serious thing will happen.
When we look at history, what kind of nation gained the best fortune? The nation whose women were mistreated without mercy and received unbearable suffering historically will be touched by God's loving hand. Such a nation is Korea, a place where women have been mistreated by men and have been in such miserable situations. Such a nation can stand as a representative nation in the world. Therefore, people have to be re-created through the nation whose women were mistreated most severely. When a woman becomes like a piece of rag that is ripped completely, then at last she can be re-created. Therefore, the history of re-creation will start from the nation where woman have suffered unbearably, historically. From this viewpoint, Korea became the foundation to receive the Messiah.
Have Korean women suffered very much or not? Do women suffer to give birth to a baby or not? If a child isn't mistreated by someone, then the mother must be mistreated by someone. If it doesn't happen, God Himself must mistreat her in order for her to pay indemnity. Korean women look pitiful, but it is not true when you took at them from this viewpoint. Therefore, I think I have to make the members of the Unification Church suffer more. Do you mind it or not? (We don't mind it.) Therefore, women in the Unification Church have fought the battle on the front line. (21:98)
6) The Merit of Women
I know some women think, "Why was I born as a woman? I wish I was born as a man." How about man? I think some men wish to be born as women. Which number is greater, women who wish to be born as men or men who wish to be born as women? (98:263)
Once you are born as a woman, you can't become a man no matter how hard you may pray or roll around on the ground. (Laughter.) Moreover, even if you say, "I don't belong to anyone. I don't have a father," you can't change it. (165:60)
Woman is important. Why is a woman happy? It is because God raises up a person whom God can love through a woman's body. Do you understand? Without a woman's body, man or woman have no way to be born. Do you understand? Even if God's desire is great, can a man who can unite the whole world be born without a woman? It is impossible. Man alone is not enough. Woman alone is not enough. By woman, sons and daughters are conceived. From that moment, they have a complete relationship. Through that relationship, a baby grows up and gets a mother's flesh and blood and is born. Therefore, loving sons and daughters are more precious than anything else. Do you understand? They are the most precious existence in heaven and earth. We can't buy them with money. They can't be exchanged with even the whole world. It is for God, mother and father. Can you exchange your sons and daughters with something else?
Who gives their own flesh and blood to them, holds and protects them, makes them a valuable existence? The baby is born through the mother's womb. The father just sows seeds. Isn't that right? Therefore, everyone who lives in this world was born through the mother's fortune. Even though woman has a lot of suffering, man can't even enter the world of a woman's heart, a deep valley of love. Man can't reach it. Even any explanation can't reach it.
We, the Unification Church, appeared in the world to understand the value of women for the first time, as I mentioned, to understand just how valuable woman is. To give birth to a son means to give birth to God's plus character. To give birth to a daughter means to give birth to God's minus character. Then "I," as a human being, am what kind of person? I am a person like God. I'm standing in the position of God. Man was projected from God's body. This is the same for woman. The one who can stand in the same heartistic position as God is woman. Therefore, in the restoration world, woman could establish a heartistic foundation as God's object.
Because of the fall, woman had to be in the most miserable situation. Do you understand? Woman is supposed to receive the most happiness, but she has to stand in a miserable position. (165:104)
"Rev. Moon in the Unification Church is stupid," I know some whisper behind me. "Why would he let women work at the front line? Even though he could let men lead, he has women lead." However, without woman, we can't have a baby. You have to go out to give the power to give birth to the nation of 30 million. When you scream at giving birth, a new Korean darling will be born. (36:193)
Woman has to carry the burden that man can't carry. Doesn't woman have to carry luggage on her back because man can't carry on his back? (Laughter.) Now, women, do you do anything that men do? Do you do more than men? (We do more than men.) What do you do more? Can you run faster than men? (Yes.) Can you wrestle and box better than men? ( Yes.) (Laughter.) How can you say that? "I may be defeated by man, but if man wrestles with me, one day I will grab him and won't let him go for ten years." You should be able to say that.
(Laughter.) When you study the course of restoration through indemnity centered on Jacob, you will know it is true. Do you know what I'm talking about? Do you triumph over man? Man is a late riser. Therefore, even though man goes to bed, "I" don't go bed. Even though man eats so much that his stomach almost explodes, "I" eat only a little bit. Even though man plays and enjoys, "I" don't play. Then you will win. When you eat a lot and sleep much, you won't win. When you eat less and sleep less, you'll win. It is opposite. Isn't it so? (Yes.) It is true. Another way is for woman to give birth to a boy. (98:341)
I'm saying that women in the Unification Church are the strongest of all. They are stronger than men. I would like to hear, "They are stronger than God and stronger than Father." I like this kind of information. (Laughter.) Otherwise you will fall again. Can you do that? (Yes.) Then what will men do? Who will give birth to the baby, man or woman? (Laughter.) When you sing a song, do you think of woman or man? Is the woman's voice higher or the man's voice? (Woman's.) Men's voices are bass, so they can make only low sounds. Even when they laugh, women can make all kinds of phenomena. Women laugh, "He, he, he. Ho, ho, ho." But men can only laugh "Ha, ha, ha." Then is God a simple God or a varied God? (Varied.) When I give something to them, men are happy just saying, "I'm happy." Women are very happy and show it through their mouth and eyes. (Laughter.) Who is more rich and varied?
In this sense, who wants to start to play in the spring. Man is slow in his movements and can't understand spring. Women are sharp. As soon as spring approaches, women jump outside. (668:33)
