The topic of Father's sermon is Cham Tae Kajong: The Truthful Family is the Homeland of All Perfections. Do you understand the meaning of this? It means that without the family, everything remains imperfect and incomplete. In America there are many philosophies. Many people live alone and are incomplete. We even find the extreme of a man living with another man as his spouse, and women likewise. They do this because they do not know how man originally was created to live. Therefore they are going against the way God wants us to go; they are following the devil, Satan. Among those who are homosexual and lesbian, most do not feel entirely happy with their way of life.
Education has merit when it fulfills its purpose to teach how to hear, think, and act. Of these the most important is how to act, and of all the actions, the most important are those associated with sexuality and the sexual organs. For example, the eyes have a specific role; the ears cannot play that role. Each organ fulfills a specific function: hearing, speaking, smelling and so forth.
Man and woman are the same in every way but one, and that is their sexual organs. When we examine the purpose of our physical organs, we can conclude nothing other than that the purpose of the sexual organs is to join man and woman together. If man and woman ever are to find unification, this is the way. This is truth. Should this unification be something temporary or eternal? It should be unique, unchanging, eternal, divine and absolute. It should possess all these qualities.
We are talking about the very power of love. Love brings unification. All men desire to exist at the highest level, reaching the highest standard, and to remain at that level forever. They pursue this absolute standard their whole life. But without the love which brings unification, everything they achieve will crumble down. Perhaps humankind is not the best example. In the mineral world we see perfect eternal harmony. This is true as well in the plant world. Man and woman should be like this. Everything, even the insects, was created according to the pair system. Are you like that? [Yes.]
Man and woman are reciprocal partners. If man represents east then the woman would represent west, or if the man stands in the north then the woman covers the south. When they unite, they do so at the connection of a perfectly vertical axis and a completely horizontal axis. Before uniting horizontally they must establish the vertical axis. Then they can become one. In doing so, each achieve their perfect position. What man absolutely needs is a woman. A woman needs, more than anything, her spouse, a man. There is no other substitute, no comparable treasure. Why? It is because man and woman are completed by becoming one.
When there are high and low barometric pressure areas, one flows into the other. Likewise, a husband feels, "Since I need her absolutely, I will give everything to her and become zero." If both sides strongly feel this, will there be separation, or greater and greater unity? [Unity.] What is inside will come out, the top will go to the bottom and the two entities will become indistinguishably one. That one entity will be round, like a snowball. The two will move round and round. Each will be the nucleus of the other. Then they will occupy the position of absoluteness. They will arrive at the center and stand on the central point, one dot. Love will explode from that point. Each one of the billions of cells of their bodies will implode upon that small dot. Love will collapse in and be rooted there. Then it will explode and expand outwards in circular motion. In laughter we will go round and round.
Even if you are standing perfectly still, still you are breathing in and out and there is some motion back and forth. It is very noticeable to Orientals, who practice the art of sitting still. This motion is the same as that of the universe. The universe is moving just as you are; you are a small universe.
According to this teaching, what is your direction as a woman? Women wonder about being born as women. Sometimes they lament about it. But women are born for the sake of men. It is deceptively simple. It is universal truth. And for what are men born? Women. That makes you feel warm and good. If you say man was born for man and women for women, it makes you feel cold and chilly.
What about God then? Almighty and all powerful God exists for the sake of the universe, not for Himself. God does not live for Himself. In this world, if you only live for yourself, it is so lonely and meaningless. Living for oneself makes a man so lonely he cries. But he is not just crying; he is crying centering on something. He cries, not centering on his eyes, but centering on that organ. He cries because he is so lonesome.
Each woman seeks to be the best dressed woman in the world. But is that best dressed woman happy by herself? [No.] And yet a woman who only wears ragged clothes, but has the world's best husband, is happy. Once a man tastes and holds a woman, he will never let go. The same for women. Man and woman would rather die than separate. It is true that sometimes a man lives for wealth, even to the point of giving his life. Sometimes he lives for knowledge or power. But which is one willing to die for: power, wealth, knowledge or love? Love. If a man dies for wealth, he is considered strange. But if he dies for love, he is considered great. Thus would God not want to stuff man full of love? [Yes.]
Even if a man has an abundance of something, he still wants more. If you have lots of money, you worry to death over it. With knowledge, you always want more. If you have power, you never have peace; someone is always chasing you. What about love?
When a young man and woman marry, do they say they have enough love? No. No one ever feels that their warehouse of love is full. Wherever one goes, this huge warehouse goes with you. You cannot carry around all your money, or your library of books full of knowledge. Politicians do not want their constituents with their problems on their shoulders. But love is so mobile. Wherever you go with it you feel comfortable. Where does one want to store one's beloved? In their eyes, ears and mouth, and in their entire body. Is that true? I don't know. You know better than me.
How filling love is. It fills you up. As long as you have it, you don't care about anything else. The world can rotate backwards on its axis and as long as you have love, you don't care. A man has to go after something in his life. What should that be? If men and women have knowledge, don't they fight over it? [Yes.] They bicker. If you have lots of money, the same is true. American women have individual bank accounts, yet do they feel comfortable? Open your eyes wide and see if you can find peace and unification in that situation. Does it exist there? [No.] But in love there is no limit.
Father is making one great point. Is there anything for which you are willing to relinquish love? [No.] The absolute essential possession of man and woman is love. Why? Because this is the purpose for which we were born. Love begins when you think and act for the sake of the other. We must seek the possibility of becoming perfectly unified. Love will come out and say, "I want to stay here forever."
In a woman's eyes is there a hook or not? Are her nose and mouth a hook? Is her mind a hook? In order to hook love, all her hooks must work as a perfect symphony. Your forty billion cells, each with their own hook, will leap for love. Even a sleeping God will wake up. There is no way to deny this; it is impossible for Father to over-exaggerate this. We often speak poetically about the sparkling eyes of women; they are waiting to dash out and hook love. She is totally focused on love.
[Father touches the flower arrangement.] Are they real? Are you real? Do you want to be the owner of absolute love or not? [Yes.] That is the answer that you get from all people. So, what is free sex? What is homosexuality? What meaning do they have? None. They are of the hellish, satanic world. Free sex and homosexuality are the tools of Satan to entice people to his side. There is no other meaning to them than this.
It is woman's true nature not to want a dress which she buys herself. She wants her husband to buy it for her. Your dress should come from the one whom you love and who absolutely loves you.
What is the path of love? What road does it travel? Love travels the path which is the safest. No one can intrude. Do you reveal love or keep it safe? [Keep it safe.] However, we often see people trying to show themselves off. Such people will always have trouble. Once you show yourself off, people examine you. It is better to hide away. The more you love each other, the less you have to do. Just touch hands or whisper in the ear. When two poles of electricity come together and there is light. The same with love. As they come closer together, they can leap to each other.
It is good to learn truth, but how am I going to accomplish it? We see that people do not reserve anything today. From the age of ten there is nothing reserved as secret or precious. They try everything. How far away we are from the ideal today. This free sex society is very distant from the ideal world. We are far, far away. So what will be your response? Will you walk there slowly, or fly there? [Fly.] At what speed? Do you know how fast love flies? At what speed does a secularized American move? Can they ever catch up with true love? [No.] They look here and there for love, but they can never catch up. But you are different. If there were 1,000 attractive women trying to hook you, you would spit at them. A fallen man would start making liaisons. For us, even thinking about that is horrible.
So what is a truthful family? Father could speak ten sermons about this. Do you really know that love is necessary? Women are born and exist for the sake of men. Man exists for woman. There is no other purpose of life. Do you welcome that? [Yes.] Why? Because by living that way you will occupy true love. It is for the sake of love. It is so that all cells can be hooked by love. You can forget all loves except the element of love which is between husband and wife. This should remain eternally and grow day by day. All loves support this ideal and bring us to the point of conjugal love.
From conjugal love we should give birth to children. All the fruits of love reside here. When you reach this point, you will know everything about your husband without asking. If you are unfaithful, it is similar to half a building falling down. Divorce is rampant in this society. It can be triggered by one word. But even if one spouse is bad, if one continues to live for the other, there will be no divorce. There is no more powerful revolution than this; you must understand the power of this love. Women should look in the mirror each morning, and ask, "Are my eyes and mouth for myself, or do I look at them for my spouse?" In the fallen world, women use make up to attract attention from other men, not just from their spouses. This leads to catastrophic destruction. Women are trying to entice so-called more qualified men who are already married. They don't mind the damage. They don't care.
When a man and woman become very close, the vertical love comes to meet them. They meet at the central point. When the husband and wife hold hands they begin to rotate. When they kiss they rotate more. Making love is the completion stage. By the time the husband touches the wife's bosom, she has opened her growth gate, and they are ready for the perfection of love. Nothing is reserved for myself. If this is true love, it works. But if it is not true, it will fail.
In the Unification Church we know where true love begins. There is no casual marriage, because marriage can only take place in alignment with the vertical axis. For a marriage to work, man and woman must stand on a perfectly horizontal foundation. There is no way to determine this without orientation by the vertical axis. This vertical axis is always necessary. Therefore, you need the consent of the parents and all the relatives. If a man marries without these approvals, he will drift in his own direction. Why is love necessary? Because love is the only way to occupy God. Through true love, the world of effect can occupy the world of cause. Once we occupy God we occupy all things in the universe. We gain ownership. So, should we marry? [Yes.] Why? For the sake of love, and through love we occupy God and the whole universe.
God is the invisible owner; man the visible owner of the universe. My mind is the invisible vertical self and my body the visible horizontal self. In looking at man, there is a clear vertical line from his nose to his reproductive organs, which divides him symmetrically. When a wise man looks at someone, he looks at his vertical and horizontal lines and at his walk. No two men are alike. Looking at his face tells a lot, but looking at the body tells all about his life and his nature. If his mouth is perfectly horizontal, he always tells the truth. A large mouth means he can speak many words without getting tired; he is a good orator. If the eyes are always focused, he is stable. However when the eyes dart around, one is unstable as a parent and will divorce. If one has small feet, he or she will not do heavy labor. A person with small hands does not have to do many chores. Each person is born with their own path of life.
In this building each beam is in its place. We may think we are free, but if we deviate we are not free. Those who live for others have a larger safety zone, a larger area of movement. Father has much property, but nothing is in his own hands. However, all the managers of these things want to bring them close to Father. All things know the identity of the original owner. All things know more than humankind does at this time. This is why the Unification Church is being opposed but becomes larger and larger.
In the fallen world, they make a large noise but do not accomplish so much. With us it is the opposite. Nobody hears very much, but the result is gigantic. When people investigate, they find nothing. It is because they do not have eyes to see. Spiritually we are a huge mountain. They only see what is in their line of sight.
When sitting, sit as straight as possible. Many people walk in very unusual ways. There should be a straight, well-balanced, vertical line. Then God and the spirit world will take notice of you. Then you will see your shoes worn evenly. To be a good leader you must have that, but it is pretty rare. That is Father's qualification. Even though Father has aged, we don't notice it. He is still straight and healthy, and he walks quickly, too. There is no better spiritual discipline than this walking discipline. Walk the right way.
So we know why we cannot marry at our private convenience. We have to perfectly fit the pattern of the universe. If we do so, then even though we are small and the universe is huge, no matter where we are we fit perfectly. Be always in harmony. Have no contradiction. Rev. Moon's work may have caused controversy in society, but because God wants this work done, nothing can destroy it. When Rev. Moon comes to America for the sake of America, he is ardently fighting for the sake of preserving America's true values. All of the forces supporting those values will support him. Wherever he goes, even in prison, he tries to fit into the universal pattern. Such a life helps to broaden one's experience.
If man and woman are to unite eternally, they must have the correct vertical and horizontal structure. They must know who is subject and who is object. Do you understand? [Yes.] But America lacks the subject-object concept. They think they don't need it, but they are wrong. For a nation, too, there needs to be a subject. In the nation, as in the family, as the scope becomes larger and larger, God too becomes larger and larger. For such growth to take place, we must have this perfect intersection point where the vertical and horizontal meet. This is the central line of the universe, where true love moves. This must be set up before true love can exist or operate. Which line comes first? The vertical line comes first. In the Orient we write from the top of the page to bottom. In the West you write from the left side to the right. In the East we write from the right side to the left. Thus, East and West will meet at the central point. All religious thought came from the East to the West. Here in the Unification Church we will bring the two cultural spheres into unity.
We know which position spouses should take in relation to each other. If the woman refuses this, she will not have eternal life. Can two pluses attract? No, they repel. Even the nation must have the correct structure. As each stage of society is built properly on the earth, God will descend down vertically. Which is easier, to go up or to come down? Coming down does not consume as much energy as going up does. On the individual level your body centers upon your mind. The mind covers all four directions, 360 degrees. There is nothing the mind doesn't know.
Until now the world had no center, because the center is the Messiah's position. The Messiah's attributes constitute the center of the family, clan, tribe, etc. He will be positioned in the exact center of the universe, making two perfect lines. Then Satan will not be able to move. Satan can move around only because the center is not established. The vertical and horizontal lines will be intact. Satan's mission is to break this. He wants to destroy any part of it.
Once the Messiah accomplishes this, the real order of the universe will have been restored. According to this Principle, the drunkards will not be able to create trouble. True love will live there. Drinking excessively will no longer be desirable because people naturally will live according to the law. You will be at peace. Your extra energy can be used for love.
In the future we will travel along the universal highway of love. There is universal fate. That fate is very reliable and leaves no room for accidents. You can go as fast as you want and still you are safe. That means you may have an idea, then you give it to God, and then whatever you do you go through this highway. With this in your mind and with its practice in your life, you can stand on a high hill and look at the plains and talk to a giant tree. The tree will reply as a person. That universal "Changun," heavenly fortune, will give you a good sleep. Sleep is better under a tree than in a house.
Is America the subject over the world? America is an object to the world. The world is subject. If the object is not living for the world there is a violation of the Principle. The result is deterioration. We saw it in the history of the Israelites. They thought they should be the dominant nation, but the Messiah wanted to sacrifice Israel. This pattern held also for Rome and England and it holds for America. Why has America declined since World War II? America must quickly realize this Principle. America needs Rev. Moon, in order to get themselves guided correctly. They do not know which direction humankind is going. It is not too sweet to hear this. It is disturbing. What will happen? If the older generation doesn't listen, the historical task of indemnity is passed to the younger generation. The younger generation will certainly follow Father's ideas, not the old people's ideas. The second generation must be aware of this.
Today's main topic is the truthful family. The truthful family is where the vertical line is intact. When you lose your husband, you lose your family, you lose the universe. Once the vertical and horizontal relationship is formed perfectly, it doesn't matter which way you are facing, because it will be the same relative structure. Whichever way you turn you will have that correct structure.
The hope of any person in any position in the universe is to come to the central point where the vertical and horizontal lines meet. No matter which line you follow, you eventually will intersect the center. When the family becomes like this, it can go anywhere and hold the value of the universe.
The feelings of the children, brothers and sisters, husband and wife and parents comprise the essential feelings of the family. Each family must have perfect children, perfect brothers and sisters, a perfect husband and wife and perfect parents. That vertical line tells us to serve others. The vertical lives for the horizontal, the horizontal for the vertical. In the place where you live for the sake of others, you find perfection.
In a human being, too, we have bones and flesh. We have the power to focus our eyes. The nose has two nostrils. In the mouth, the two lips make a focus while speaking. Ears and hands are the same way.
Without subject and object there is no action. Today's scientists know that the universe is made up of force. They see the relationship but they do not know which comes first, the force or interaction. God has force, but first creates subject and object, and interaction takes place. Then the force comes. Everything in the universe exemplifies the subject and object system.
Who is the king of the family? The husband. In your home, the parents are king and queen. You must have a vertical concept. After parents, it is your husband. The father is the king of the home; the queen of the home is the mother. All freedom depends upon this system.
Once you make the vertical, then make the horizontal. After that you are free to do anything. Americans do not understand freedom. If the parents are fighting, is there freedom? No, there is only worry. In the Unification Church you can find real freedom, real happiness. It is being taught here. So the unification of the world is no problem. The same point applies to man and woman. Who is subject, who is object? American people complicate it.
Once you occupy a perfect family it means you already occupy the universe. This is a king's brood, not a viper's brood. Everyone's ambition is to be king. Man and women both want to be the monarch. How can this be solved? Through true love. This means that the truthful family is the homeland of all perfection. In the family, there is the father and his offspring, the children's generation. Three generations comprise a family. The perfect family happens step by step.
We must understand that all of these four positions-parent, husband and wife, brother and sister, and children-applied to Adam and Eve. However, who is the center? God is the center, as the parent. Without parents, brother and sister could not come to exist. For Adam and Eve, God was in the parent position. Adam and Eve were brother and sister. Without brothers and sisters there cannot be spouses. Without spouses there can be no parents. God has to eventually find this family and present it a certificate. When is the moment God gives the four certificates to the one family? This is when, centering on God, you give marriage to your sons and daughters. So, it is like dividing and coming into unity and dividing again. Becoming a spouse, giving birth to a child and becoming separated in that position. Later as they grow, they come together again.
We do not see such a family life much anymore in America. Therefore, we can only conclude that no one will go to heaven. The simple conclusion is that heaven is where the family goes. If there is no perfect true family, they cannot get into the Kingdom of Heaven. So we must help Father recreate heaven on earth. The fact that Father takes such pains to teach us means that he is recreating us. Re-creation cannot be found anywhere except in Rev. Moon's teaching. This is the greatest, most ideal concept.
So, this is what you can say: when you perfect yourself as a child and as a brother and sister, then you are ready to become a husband or a wife and eventually you will become a perfect parent. You can inherit all the blessings of God. You can only bear children and relate to brothers and sisters when you have parents in mind. On the right is man and the left is woman. God then gives them the blessing and they can reproduce the visible children of God.
God too was once in the child's position and from there He grew. As we all went to school, He went. He too went through that age group and came to produce a family, one in which not only His family but all humankind could fit. Adam and Eve looked just like twins. They resembled each other and God. They kept growing: kindergarten age, grammar school age, middle school age, high school age and college age. If Adam and Eve had not fallen, as they grew they would have followed the footsteps of their Father, God.
Since Adam and Eve were growing separately, independently, they were to have no spouse or a reciprocal relationship horizontally. Vertically they had a relationship. From above, he's subject, she's object. So, just like God Himself has grown up, Adam and Eve, taking the same steps as God, should have continued to grow up. Centering on parents, when he finished his Ph.D., he would have realized that it is not a big name or honor he should pursue, but a spouse. He saw many examples in the animal world. "So, that's the way they love." Was so-called sex education ever necessary? [No.] He learned from the natural world.
So, the purpose of marrying was to perfect himself. By occupying God he could eventually occupy all of the universe, all creation and the spirit world. He could then gain ownership.
Giving birth to many children, as Mother did, is good. Why? Your children will become heavenly people, honorable people. That number is your honorable property, your most precious property. So Adam and Eve each would have realized that it is the time for them to meet as husband and wife. Where would they meet? There is only one ideal place, only one point: the true love highway. That means that within a pair, a man and a women, there are children already present. Brother and sister are already present in them. Husband and wife are present as well. Also, future parents are there. It is not only they who, after their marriage, expect perfect children to appear. Because they have the qualification of having perfected themselves already as perfect children, perfect brother and sister, and perfect husband and wife, everyone expects them to give birth to perfect children. You must understand this is the beginning of God's glorious family, or the perfected family.
Likewise, what about Adam's children? All humankind follow the same pattern as Adam and Eve. So, when you stand in the marriage ceremony, first you must stand as perfect child. Second, you must stand with the qualification of perfect, completed brother (sister). Third, you must stand as a candidate to become a perfect husband (wife). It proceeds in that order.
When you are getting married, your bride is your twin sister. From her perspective, she is about to wed her own brother, who has with her common parents in God. They are confident. Just as their parents were successful in their marriage, having an abundance of love, now they are confident to do the same. Each knows they can give plenty of love to their own children. So how can they fight or have discord? The love they experience the first night doesn't deteriorate, but increases and becomes richer. By doing that their ownership of the kingdom of heaven multiplies. They become the second God and rule the universe along with God.
So God now gives us the blessing. "You too," God says, "since you are perfected in all these ways are now about to assume my position and give birth to many children." Since we are about to have many children, who are to connect with many ancestors in the spirit world, and with many people on earth, they are welcomed because they represent the horizontal expansion of the kingdom, just as Father expanded. This position of receiving the Blessing is to receive from Father the three diplomas or three qualification papers as perfect children, perfect brother and sister, and perfect couples. Everything that God has is in there. Since the bride and groom have all the elements of perfection, God now comes into this position.
The spiritual God comes down here and becomes a physical God. All that was only an ideal. Now it is no longer a mere ideal, but an actual entity. The joy of giving birth to our children is a re-enactment of the joy God had when He gave birth to us. When we stand in this position, perfect and having all the created value of our perfection, we understand beyond a doubt that God indeed created me and everything else for the sake of God, for other brothers and sisters and for humankind. If the children marry in a position different from this, the ideal of God's creation is in vain.
From the point of view of chronological time, what is happening here is that the future, present and past, the vertical dimension, is becoming horizontal. Here we have the four realms of heart and the three kingships. So, we should serve our grandparents as representatives of God Himself, because they are His ambassadors. Our parents are the king and queen, who represent the entire world. Our children represent the future, and are to bring the spiritual and physical worlds into oneness and inherit all the glory of the present and past, the kingship of these two worlds.
Since we lost the value of these positions because of the fall, human desire is to have their parents become the real king and queen and their grandparents become the real king and queen on earth. Each person hopes that eventually he or she, too, will become king or queen. That's the way God created all of us to be. Our own sons and daughters are in the position of prince and princess of the future, in the position to inherit the kingdom. This is not a wild dream. Everyone has the idea of being king, but before that I want my parents to be king and queen, and before that I want my grandparents to be king and queen. What is the benefit of inheriting this kingship and queenship? With this inheritance, no one can deny us when we get into the spirit world. We can go everywhere; we have a free pass.
We must teach this to our children. This is your kingdom. You are the future king of the world and the universe; you are like Father and like God. With this idea the child will grow up and practice this love horizontally. Before they can go to the spirit world, they will become king and queen. When we come to the spirit world, we can say, "I was a king on earth and now I bring that kingdom here." So each person's realm of influence in the spirit world becomes wider and wider.
In the spirit world there is no reproduction. God's Principle is for reproduction here on earth. Therefore, reproduction takes place in the immense realm of the physical world. God is Father to everyone, nothing else but Father. So the custom of the tribal messiah, the national messiah and the world messiah is True Parents' custom. True Parents have True Love. The fallen world does not have True Parents. The fallen world has false parents. False parents are the conduit of false love, limited love. Limited love brings forth limited life. True Love creates eternal love, eternal life. The fallen world lost eternal love, eternal life, and the eternal blood lineage. Therefore we have to recreate the world of the original purpose. This is the purpose of the providence of God.
There is no room for reproduction in the vertical world. People in the spirit world cannot multiply. They do not have that root in the central point. God, therefore, needs the environment for the creation of people. That is the ideal family-the "formula family system." Why did every generation of the Christian world call God, "Father"? They did not know why. It is because every family is supposed to be the same as Adam's family. The father's position is that of God. The central point, the absolute subject, is the father, as in Adam's family. Each family has the same meaning, the meaning of Adam's family.
This environment is our homeland, our immense homeland. The family brings the perfection of the homeland. It is the place of final settlement. The three generation family represents all humankind, every nation and every age. Everything is concentrated in one place, the family. The kingdom on earth is the place of the extended family. It is one family expanded to the size of the world. We look at those younger than us as our children. Those the same age are like brother and sister-not a spouse! After children's love and brother-sister love, there is the couple's love. It is a process of growth from one to the next. The same concept rules everywhere. Then there is no problem, and there is total freedom. The whole universe is liberated by the completion of the family in true love. Everything is connected by this family, in freedom.
These are the four great realms of heart and the three great realms of kingship. I come representing the past, present and future. In light of what I represent and what I stand for, nothing can oppose me.
You did not see how your wife grew up, but by looking at your own daughter you now can know how your wife grew up. God, too, grew up just as your sons and daughters grew up, just as you grew up.
It took us 6,000 years to reach this moment, and there is a population of five billion living on the earth, and they all carry on in their horizontal way. The True Parents came, whom they call the Savior. By grafting into the True Parents, all five billion people will have grafted firmly into God's lineage. Therefore, from them, too, will come true children. This is God's love; His dispensation. The fallen world is going in one direction, Father in another. Father has already made the ground, the foundation, and just through the glimpse given this morning, you have more than enough to bring the unification of the whole world overnight.
We have a blueprint, so why can't we build according to this blueprint? There are so many people with great intelligence. They will want to occupy God quickly; this is the hope of true human ambition. Do you understand or not? [Yes.] Then you understand more than me! You are a big crowd of people, and I am only one man. You are a big mountain of people increasing everyday. Automatically, the universe will be unified centering on the ideal of true love. How wonderful our ideal is. Amen!
The real family makes the completion of the heavenly homeland. That is your family. Everyone in such a family is thankful-parents, grandparents, children. American people do not have relatives. They are like the archangel, who does not have partnership. This is the root cause of the phenomena of free sex, homosexuality and lesbianism. Who likes that kind of partnership? It's a problem. Now that you understand, you have to speak loudly about it.
So, we must understand that it is the family and not the individual which goes into heaven. In order to form a family we must unite ourselves as Cain and Abel. Then all the royal families come into being, royal families within the realms of kingship and queenship. That is all humankind. The vertical kingship is in the subject position. The horizontal aspect is royal familyship. The two combined create a bigger center with which God can connect. As it becomes bigger, it corresponds with a higher vertical level. That is the recreation system, establishing the ideal world. It is inevitable.
So Father can shout to the world, "It does not matter who you are. The presidency of a nation or any high position mean nothing. What matters is if you can suggest a better idea to save humankind. Can you suggest a better ideal concept of the Kingdom of Heaven, or peace, or all these crucial issues? Can you surpass the Unification Church?" Rev. Moon doesn't think so. There are only one True Parents, eternally. So all religions, all nations, must heed this statement.
You are the royal family directly under Father. If all the world and universe understand even before you do and follow Father better than you do, then what will you say for yourselves in the future? Especially those who oppose Father will be blamed eternally by their own children. They will question why you failed to follow, just as the descendants of Adam constantly accuse Adam for creating the fallen situation. As fallen people we must deny ourselves so that we can measure up to the complete goal, that of true recreation. We must go the indemnity way. Fallen people must deny themselves, so that they can reach the goal of freedom.
The Unification movement must understand that it is to form that royal kingship and royal families. It must create that structure, so to speak, exactly according to the form of Principle. This is the Unification Church. There are four great Principles. First you see the restoration of elder sonship, then the restoration of parentship, then the restoration of kingship, and the restoration of royal kingship. We should always remember this. This is what God aims to restore through True Parents. Unification members must learn this by heart.
We should be prouder than ever that we have True Parents. When True Parents appear, kings will follow after them. Ultimately, kings will become their royal family relatives. Throughout history, men made themselves kings instead of allowing God to be king. That is evil, which expanded from the tribe to the nation and world. God doesn't want that. Still, God has no concept of having an enemy. He does not consider even the most untrustworthy person to be an enemy. If we identify an enemy of God, that means that we have a bipolar thought, representing two origins, not one origin. So, Rev. Moon has no enemy, no matter how difficult it is to work in the fallen world. Satan knows that; therefore Satan cannot accuse Rev. Moon in front of God.
America as a nation and as people have acted as an enemy to Rev. Moon. Isn't that true? During this period, Rev. Moon has passed over everything. He established one newspaper, which fights against all the liberal papers. No hope exists in America. American leaders understand this, wondering how they can survive. The secular world can find no answer. They don't like to place hope in Rev. Moon. Satan hates Rev. Moon, too. Therefore, the actions of Americans are leading to a breakdown. Satan is breaking America down, and God is building America back up, following the providential course. God is bringing the completion, through the unity of right and left.
How can the universal truth appear on the earth? Through life for the sake of others. You cannot deny that. From life for the sake of others, the root is connected. That root connects to true love. Satan cannot connect to that root. It is the point of completion. But you must deny everything: the nation, the world and everything in it.
Satan's original position is going down and God's original position is going up, to the point that they are exchanging positions. Recreation begins when you leave behind all concepts. The fallen world is recreated by going through the zero point. Without that, you cannot reach the ideal existence. It is the same for Rev. Moon. How could I deny the entire world? How could I deny the Korean nation? How could I deny my family? You must have an atmosphere of going over and winning victory. Then everything can be recreated.
For example, in North Korea and South Korea, every party was against me. But now we are approaching Kim Il Sung's eightieth birthday and he is sincerely inviting Rev. Moon to please come. Think about that. He made me his younger brother, and became my elder brother. So I said, you have to hear your younger brother's voice. I can get Soviet Union and other nations to help you. He said, "South Korea is against Rev. Moon, so I like Rev. Moon." He wants to welcome me to his bosom and have me teach his twelve million people. People all over the world will be surprised by Rev. Moon's powerful authority. In this way, the world can turn around in one moment.
I have taught now for almost four hours. In the secular world, sermons are a maximum thirty or forty minutes. My record time is sixteen and one-half hours. I didn't even go to the toilet. The interpreter, Pak Bo Hi, had to leave many times to go to the bathroom. I understand. [Laughter.] I was sweating; that is the secondary way of elimination.
So Father has taught us everything. Now we don't need Father for the sake of teaching us. We know that this is the homeland of all perfection. [To President Baughman:] Do you love your Korean wife? [Yes.] You say yes, but Father doesn't believe that. Maybe you sometimes think that you were talked into it. [Laughter.] You weren't talked into it; she is the best wife you could ever have. All the blessed couples here, no matter to whom you are married-Korean, Japanese or American-you are so blessed. After the world is restored, Father may meet ten couples every morning. Then the line will stretch from here to Washington, DC, and even beyond, even as far as South America.
Is it reality that the True Parents are standing here? Real True Parents are here. But Father does not have to appear in person as he always has. There is such a thing as videotape. In a video broadcast, Father can address the entire world simultaneously. God prepared that facility.
Based upon what Father has already taught us, and even without Father teaching us anymore, do we now have a passport to go to heaven, or is that something we have yet to attain? [We have it now.] Maybe you will have it in the future, but your possession of a passport is not guaranteed. What is guaranteed is that you have to practice and accomplish the above and then that passport will be valid. You have heard everything, but you have not done everything. Each person is at a different level. There are black peoples' concepts, white peoples' concepts and yellow peoples' concepts. Therefore the results are different everywhere. How can we be unified? You like cheese and hamburgers. [Laughter.] Koreans like kochuchan and kimchee. It's hot, and Americans don't like that. Americans are cheese color. How can we create the parents' way? It's not easy; it will take many many years. How can we accomplish it in a short time?
So this is the time when dreams are realized. April is a blossoming month. We see the spring come every year without fail, but the spring of God's dispensation is happening now for the first time in history. It is the first spring after Father announced the Completed Testament era. With the greatest joy and the greatest confidence that we have met this incredible time, this incredible family and this incredible Father and Mother, we should lift up this country and rock this country and the world to wake them up.
Who is going to prevent the spread of AIDS? Neither traditional education, secular education nor medicine can overcome the spread of AIDS. Only education by the Unification Church can do it. Think about saving America. This is Father's wish. If America shows a good example, the whole world will follow automatically. But America is practicing the satanic way of life. There will be a time when we have to warn the world, "Don't come to America. There is nothing to learn here." Americans are not welcomed everywhere. They show nothing but a bad example. We have to change America quickly, so that God can welcome everyone to America to learn from America's example.
Now you have graduated from college, and you have a Ph.D. as well. At this time, you must teach. That is your mission, everywhere. One individual, one group, one school, one university, you have to teach. You can broadcast on NBC, CBS and so forth. Say, "Give me the microphone. I will talk." You have to save your country. Until now you didn't do that. Look at your nation's situation. How miserable it is, going down, getting hit. It is not Rev. Moon's country; he is a temporary visitor. He has to go back to his hometown. We will have to separate. I spent much time here, receiving much persecution. Father's parents and relatives, the Korean people, don't want that.
You have to save your country. I have sent out many Tribal Messiahs, to 160 countries and throughout America too. Young people are sent out as Tribal Messiahs. They are to unite mothers with their children, in the position of Eve and Cain and Abel, combining into oneness. That is Tribal Messiah indemnity. Through the fall, Eve lost Cain and Abel. They went into hell.
The Messiah is one man; how can he reach the whole world? The way of expansion is through the Tribal Messiahs. All five billion people will understand that Rev. Moon is a good world leader. But the world is standing on Satan's side, and Rev. Moon is standing on God's side. So the world doesn't want him. But Satan will completely disappear. Rev. Moon is a powerful presence, appearing everywhere, including in America and even in North Korea. Kim Il Sung hated me most of all. He was the champion enemy. But that side is disappearing now.
I will open a school teaching Godism and headwing thought. Look at what's happening in the C. I. S. Unification education is being developed at the highest level schools, reaching the youth of highest intellect. These are their future world leaders, being educated with a curriculum completely connected with Rev. Moon's idea. They are always inviting me there. I received the invitations from President Yelstin, but I could not go. The timing was not right. All the government members are being educated. They are surprised by what they are hearing. They thought that communism was the ultimate idea, but they find that their ideology could not answer everything and work everywhere. Now they are finding that Rev. Moon's ideology is very high level. They are giving an open-hearted welcome.
Why did I not go there? First I must see North and South Korea unified. Three republics of the C. I. S. want to make us their national church. Why not make that foundation in the soviet area? After that, what of the free world? It will have to change direction. I've been working for forty years in the free world, the Abel-side world. The communist world doesn't have the religious foundation-the Old and New Testament foundation. The root is not there. The Russian church is non-existent. Now Americans go to Moscow to be educated. Young people from Russia have become teachers of Divine Principle to the Americans. This is just after two years. They change their concept from atheism so quickly because they are so intelligent. They recognize the value of the Divine Principle, and question who could be opposing Rev. Moon. Their reaction is to dislike whomever opposes me.
Now that change is taking place in reality. In five day workshops their atheism is dispelled completely. They become theists. They are stronger individuals than Americans. They are unified as well, with 200 million moving in one direction. If you bring together 1,000 Americans, they are going in 1,000 directions. America is such a headache. You know it, but you have no way to solve it.
We gave so much to America. For what? To save the Christian world, which represents 6,000 years of providence. So much hard work was invested throughout history; I want to keep that spiritual foundation. God is the only one who understands me. I am almost ready to leave this country, to say goodbye. But they need Rev. Moon's teaching. So for the last time, starting this May, I will speak in twelve cities to the American people. Then I will have taught the contents of truth, which will testify forever to America.
You have to take that responsibility instead of Father. You have to inherit Father's mission. Can you do it? [Yes.] Can you do it? [Yes.] Really? [YES!] Three hundred people said yes, but even just one man can stir up good problems, as did Rev. Moon. Surrounding you are your relatives and friends; they want to hear Rev. Moon's ideas applied to their areas. High level people understand Rev. Moon well. They want to know his viewpoint. A sleepy guy can never understand Rev. Moon's foundation.
Which way to do you like, the convenient way or inconvenient way? [Convenient.] I like the inconvenient way. To come to America was inconvenient. The FBI, CIA, and all the agencies of the government were investigating me. Then this cosmetic messiah came out in Texas. Americans don't like it. But I like the place no one likes. Can you go to Texas? [Yes.] But it is a hot place, 100 degrees, 105 degrees. You have to work in the field, farming. Can you do that? [Yes.] No one likes that place, but I like it. Therefore I am the champion owner. Texas is too wide. I will make one eternal settlement there. I have hope there. But Father is old, over 73 years old, going on 74.
God is the greatest computer, in the spirit world. You have physical computers on earth, but they are small and weak. Therefore, I can do the best matching of men and women. In the realm of True Parents there is no distinction of Americans, English, Korean. There is no distinction based upon Ph.D. degrees. Everything is connected to true love, as your whole body is connected to one hair. In spirit world, you don't need a house or food. Everything is prepared. I want to live in that true love country.
You have to go to the front line, fighting Satan. Father will chase you out, into the dungeon of hell. You must reach completion. Can you do it? [Yes!] Those who can, raise both hands. Thank you.
(Col. Han's prayer.)
