The Words of Sun Myung Moon from 2011
Note: These notes are taken from a Peace TV video clip. They cannot be published as definitive texts and should never be used in the future as an "official" publication of True Father's words. However, they do provide a good idea of the "spirit" of the message. -- Rev. Katsumi Kambashi
"It is only the Unification church that teaches the reality of the spirit world. People live without knowing it. When they come to know it, people in the world will become brothers and sisters in one village."
"Before I became 20, I had decided what kind of life I would have, and you can see that in this speech, Cosmic Assembly for the Proclamation of the Settlement of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind and the Substantial Word of God.
(Opening the page 33 of his speech file) When you see page 33, it says, All people of the Christian faith recognize that God sent His true son Jesus Christ to earth two thousand years ago to save humankind. However, Jesus suffered a miserable fate. The leaders of Judaism and the people of Israel were supposed to receive Jesus as the Messiah and follow him with absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience. They should never have allowed Jesus' crucifixion to take place. He suddenly left this world, leaving behind the words, "It is finished." This is an amazing statement.
Yet these words apply to spiritual salvation only, and he promised to return. Ladies and gentlemen, God quietly raised and prepared the Korean people over a period of thousands of years. After two thousand years of preparation, His labor has finally borne fruit with the Second Coming of Christ on the far distant Korean Peninsula. I realized this when I was 33 years old. The spirit of that age is vigorous and think how such a young man became earnest for the nation that is perishing. You can read of such circumstances on this page.
Page 37 says, (opening that page and read), These lofty Korean values and traditions are not just matters of historical chance. Based on these values, Heaven has prepared these people; this was all part of the providence of creating a foundation to send the returning Messiah. These are not words written in any book. These are the facts I felt those days.
On the foundation of such preparation, and riding on the energy of this peninsula, I finally came, having received Heaven's seal as the True Parent of humankind and the king of kings. Then the next sub-header is "The Path Humankind should Take." Who thinks of the path humankind should take?
The Path Humankind Should Take: Distinguished Guests, your Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen. The path that humanity must now take is clear. What would give you cause to hesitate in the face of D-Day? That Heaven has revealed through us, the True Parents? There are now only six hundred days remaining. Only 600 days left and what kind of heart do you think I have? Read this speech as reference for that. This is page 39 and so I was before 40 years old then. Descendants of the Goguryo dynasty that dominated the region for 1,000 years can't disappear. You should think of that. Heaven's blessings will be with you on your ambitious and busy course. Unless I die, I must spread the blessing.
If you view the flow of history through eyes that focus on God's providence, you can see that the changes of the times can be broadly classified into three stages. First was the nature-centered era, a time when instinctual feelings, materialism and a closeness to animals and the things of creation were prevalent. In life, one must have Jeong (emotion or love).
Next came a human-centered era. when people's knowledge, feelings and emotions took precedence and dominated the world. However, these eras were transitional. They were courses of preparation necessary in order to enter the era in which people could rid themselves of their fallen nature, return to their original selves and live as one united family where they attend God as their father. When that happens we will enter a God-centered era, the final stage in which human beings who know and feel God's Heart and Will follow the path of living for the sake of others. I realized this when I was 40 (looking at the numbering of the page which is 40).
They will do this through establishing an absolute standard on the foundation of purifying themselves, both inside and out, through the holy Blessing Ceremony. You have to know what ___ and __ is.
This is the time of opening up the era of God's kingdom, Cheon Il Guk, a time in which we can return to the heart of the one true God. Please engrave this point on your hearts. (Father read this part twice) How do you read this part? This is the contents relating the time when I was in my 40's. (This is on the page 41)
Once the actual era of Cheon Il Guk begins, the spiritual and earthly worlds will be connected and brought into oneness, and all things will be governed under the Union of the Spiritual and Physical Worlds Association, which will be established on earth for the first time. To have God is not enough. God and humans must cooperate and make one structure.
This is when I was 41 years old. How can you say you are the leaders of the Unification church and patriots without knowing my past life? This file contains 73 pages. You have to learn through this speech what I have done, but you think 'I have nothing with this,' and throw it away. When I ask for the contents of the speech, nobody can answer. (To Rev. Sun Jo Hwang) You can't explain the meaning of even one page of this speech, can you? ('I am sorry I can't.) All you have this speech file, don't you? ('Yes.') You don't have the page 74.
The title of this speech has three points: the Settlement of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind, Proclamation of the Substantial Word of God, and Cosmic Assembly
(Katsumi: I am not sure that the settlement of the True Parents' is also to be "proclaimed' through this speech)."
