13: He answered, "Every plant which my heavenly Father has not planted will be rooted up. 14: Let them alone; they are blind guides. And if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit." 15: But Peter said to him, "Explain the parable to us." 16: And he said, "Are you also still without understanding? 17: Do you not see that whatever goes into the mouth passes into the stomach, and so passes on? 18: But what comes out of the mouth proceeds from the heart, and this defiles a man. 19: For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, fornication, theft, false witness, slander. 20: These are what defile a man; but to eat with unwashed hands does not defile a man."
Matthew 16: 13 -- 20

Heavenly Kingdom has been the end of the fallen man during the long, long history and there is no wonder that there should be formed family, social, national, world and universal kingdom through an individual on this earth, and since it's the hope of God and mankind, neither God nor man can fulfill the kingdom of heaven, center of our hope and ideal, without forming close relation between them.

It was the basic purpose and primary mission of Jesus' Coming to recover the broken relation between God and man and fulfill the intrinsic Garden of Eden as created through propagation of truth. Jesus in fact had many things to say to the Jewish people, but their distrust of him forced him to tell in parables and symbols instead of disclosing the truth clearly. Though it was impossible for Jesus to open his heart to them 2.000 years ago, the time is to come soon when both the internal and external truth come to appear and it will surely be end of the world.

God and creations have been waiting for the universal (central) figure endowed with such a form of truth through whom God can resolve His grudge for the first time. There may be introduction of new truth to the fallen men and new experience of unified feelings through life movement centering around the universal figure which is the starting point of the Heavenly Kingdom of Love, Truth and Life.

During the long period of history, God has been leading the movements for recovering truth and love by means of words and life, in other words, He has been trying to make the degenerate people be able to go through His love through the Holy Spirit, the center of truth and Jesus, the center of life.

The love of Holy Spirit and Jesus are not the final desire of the fallen men but God's love which they can go through based on the truth and life.

Three forms of love, life arid truth may mean God, man and creation.

As Peter expressed truth for Christ, love for living God and life for son, he was qualified to receive the key to the kingdom of heaven.

We are to get the key to open the door of truth, because the bearer of the key only can obtain the love of Holy Spirit.

Many people are wandering about valleys and fields with anxious hearts for the truth, one of three forms of keys to the kingdom of heaven.

In order to get the key to obtain God's love, one must seek for the substantial being representing love of God, life of Jesus and truth of Holy Spirit. Without him you neither fulfill the Heavenly Kingdom nor go through love to the Kingdom.

Then what can be the first above all we should seek for?

It could be no other than the original mind He created in us.

When Jesus said that there is the Kingdom of Heaven in our mind, the mind is, of course, the original one, and it also means that the Kingdom of Heaven has nothing to do with he who did not recover his original mind.

What then can make you find and recover your original mind? Nothing other than abandoning oneself and having a genial and modest heart before God enables us to recover it.

If there is any person willing to keep a steadfast and unchangeable love, and a truth other than an egocentric one and go through all hardship and suffering, he will surely be given the way to find heavenly love.

Since truth, life and love are in the eternal triangle, where there is truth, there should follow love and life as there should follow truth and life where love is, in other words there should be love closely connected or correlated with truth and life, based on love and truth.

Such a relation among truth, love and life are similar to those of God, man and creation; so with all His love, truth and life, God has been forced to grieve for the hostility between man and creation.

Since it is providential purpose to bring celestial love, life and truth to the creation through man, God sent Abraham and Jesus for its fulfillment.

The thirty years of Jesus' carpenter life was the period of struggle against all the elements slandered by Satan.

In such a struggling course God can't show which way is true. Sometimes God says what is right and sometimes He says something wrong. We can only trust our original mind, which is unchangeable in every case.

Glancing at a philosophical course, we can easily come to the conclusion that rational philosophy has been replaced by a vital one, and it can and should be changed to philanthropic one. In order to adjust ourselves to God's character, we should be endowed with a wide and lofty character to harmonize with minds the wicked people, for His character is the reality of love.

If someone tries to adjust his character partially to God's one, it will finally result in the partial position in the Kingdom of Heaven. Jesus was what is called, yeast; yeast is the raw material and source of harmony. He came to bring forth the restoration of Satan to the original state, to introduce God's love and as His representative. In order for one to get the love of God, universal supervision should be preceded by self-supervision. This has been my slogan. Consequently, the love, truth and life of God will spread based on self-supervision.
