For Whom Do We Exist?

Sun Myung Moon
April 1, 1957
1970 translation

1: "Let not your hearts be troubled; believe in God, believe also in me. 2: In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you? 3: And when I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and will take you to myself, that where I am you may be also. 4: And you know the way where I am going." 5: Thomas said to him, "Lord, we do not know where you are going; how can we know the way?" 6: Jesus said to him, "I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me. 7: If you had known me, you would have known my Father also; henceforth you know him and have seen him." 8: Philip said to him, "Lord, show us the Father, and we shall be satisfied." 9: Jesus said to him, "Have I been with you so long, and yet you do not know me, Philip? He who has seen me has seen the Father; how can you say, `Show us the Father'? 10: Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority; but the Father who dwells in me does his works. 11: Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father in me; or else believe me for the sake of the works themselves. 12: "Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in me will also do the works that I do; and greater works than these will he do, because I go to the Father. 13: Whatever you ask in my name, I will do it, that the Father may be glorified in the Son; 14: if you ask anything in my name, I will do it. 15: "If you love me, you will keep my commandments. 16: And I will pray the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, to be with you for ever, 17: even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him; you know him, for he dwells with you, and will be in you. 18: "I will not leave you desolate; I will come to you. 19: Yet a little while, and the world will see me no more, but you will see me; because I live, you will live also. 20: In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you.
John 14:1-20

There is no one who exists without give and take with others from the time when he came into being.

Individuals can and should make a proper relation between flesh and spirit for true existence, and we can only be worthy of existing when we live for true love -- for family love, society love, race love, national love, world love and universal love.

According to the Principles of Creation, nobody can find final satisfaction and happiness unless he is a being who lives for mankind; his historical fruit, consequently will unite with the purpose of history and his environment will testify to him. He should also be connected with the source of all force, God, taking give and take the action with love and beauty.

During the long, long period of history, what do you think has been sought for other than that?

According to the Principle of Creation, creation will testify to the universal hero who is also the hero of eternal love, life and hope.

He should be also be the answer to the dearest wish of spirit and flesh as well as the one in charge of the visible and invisible worlds.

If we fail to form the environment to share our fortune with, and accomplish the unified ideal with that hero, we can hardly escape the universal fear and vertical strife coming from the spiritual world in the Last Days.

Whether or not such a historical end will soon come to us when we should discern good and evil, and what shall we do, then?

Unless we are sanctified by the hero and know the final standard of good from evil at the end of the world, there may be no freedom from judgment.

Since the providential history for restoration has been made by the intersection of individual, the family, race, nation, world and universe, you should realize that each of your lives are the representative of the universe and that God has been seeking for the substantial being who represent His internal heart during the past six thousand years.

If He fails to let the substantial being heal our internal hearts, He will not only be God standing aloof from the world, but also have nothing to do with substantial beings.

Originally man was to have true love, but due to the degeneration, fallen love began.

We who have been directed to everlasting peace and freedom should first turn such a way of fallen living into that of true living, which will finally enable us to form unite with the substantial being.

When the substantial figure comes to all, the life, love and truth of each person should be connected with those of the figure. This figure is also he who is to unify human and divine loves, the historical purpose and the providential one, both historical and providential wishes and love the of history and love of providence and he could be no other than the Lord of the Second Advent. Jesus called himself the Way, the Truth and the Life and was the one to be the incarnation of the Way, the Truth and the Life and he should digest the entire universe.

Who's the Lord of the Second Advent?

He's the man who can stand before God, digesting family, society, religion, race, nation, world and universe, and all other things.

When we are united with him, we can inherit the love, life and truth as he has. You are to take such position.

Now in what state are you living? Is there anyone who writhes in agony centering on his ego? Is ego-centric anguish permitted? Absolutely not, for there will eventually be a time when he will be driven out of the providential course of history.

What do you have to offer?

All of you should know that God and creation have wanted us to dedicate all that we have with good grace, otherwise will it be eternally impossible for us to form true unity with creation.

From the beginning no peace has been accomplished thru bloodshed.

When you can understand the value of his love, life and truth by means of getting in touch with the Lord of the Second Advent, all the persons throughout the world will rush to him, and it's the time of bloodless revolution and the initial point of eternal peace for the entire universe. For that purpose, everyone should dedicate all they have.

As in the Principle of Creation, there has been nothing empty that has not been filled. When Jesus dedicated his flesh on the cross, God could set up the standard for redemption on the basis of crucifixion.

God does not want us to give under the favorable circumstances but under adversity, as Jesus on the cross. So you should bear the burden of the cross on the worldwide Golgotha, dedicating all you possess.

When such a basis found, God will be able to form an ideal standard of give and take with you.

This dedication of everything can be done only when you love the universal figure (the Lord of the Second Advent) who is capable of making us the first fruit of the whole creation.
