The Words of Rev. Sun Myung Moon From 1996
True Parents' Day is my True Son's Day
This is an exceprt from the speech given on True Parents' Day, April 18, 1996. The interpretor was Mr. Peter Kim.
The entire world will eventually have to follow True Parents into the Kingdom of Heaven. There is only one entrance, not two. Consequently we have to make sure that we are very strict in following True Parents and ensure that the entire humanity will eventually follow our footsteps. In order to enter the Kingdom of Heaven after the year 2000, we have to enter as families, as blessed couples. This is the great significance of the 3.6 million couples blessing which will occur next year. The fulfillment of this goal has to be our new determination.
At the time of Adam and Eve they were supposed to form a perfect family upon the foundation of their individual completion. However, they failed to form an ideal family. Consequently, the five billion people of the world all belong to Satan. But due to the grace and victorious foundation established by True Parents, the entire world is within the realm of True Parents grace. All blessed couples have the mission to spearhead the way to lead this entire five billion people so that they can enter the new millennium with True Parents as blessed couples. The new era of resurrection is coming. This resurrection process will lead us to the Kingdom of Heaven in the spiritual world.
What is the meaning of True Parents? Because Adam and Eve failed to establish the ideal family the entire world has become a Satanic world. Now, with the advent of the True Parents on this earth we all have to follow the perfected Adam's family. We cannot enter the Kingdom of God without True Parents' grace. We have to follow in their footsteps. By doing so we will be engrafted into true family's lineage. Then we will be able to claim to belong to true family's lineage. Once the lineage is connected we can then establish the relationship of parents and children. That is the role of the blessed couples.
Due to the fall of man, at the time of Adam's family the entire family became upside down. In this age, because of True Parents' grace, and the perfected Adam's family level, we can now turn all the families right side up. The only way that we can receive grace to enter into the Kingdom of God, is by following True Parents. But first of all we have to be able to register ourselves in order to be qualified as heavenly citizens. As blessed couples we have to follow True Parents. Adam and Eve were supposed to become True Parents. After the fall they became the worst kind of parents. They connected the entire humanity to Satan's blood lineage. How can this be erased? It needs the power of True Parents love. True Parents blood lineage is in the level of perfection. Whereas Satan's blood lineage is only at the growth perfection stage. Once the True Parents lineage is established here on the earth Satan is unable to go over that place. No matter how much the world of Satan opposes, they cannot change this principled position. Automatically they have to eventually follow the position of perfection.
True Parents' lineage can be connected to the entire humanity and turn this world completely around to God's side. The true ancestor position is the position of True Parents. This means the true family foundation of True Parents, connecting to the tribe, nation, world and cosmos. Connecting ultimately with God. This is the Kingdom of Heaven. Until we reach this place there is no unification. Without this place of unification there is no family, no brotherhood, no tribe, only the individual viewpoint. Satan is the position of the Archangel. The Archangel cannot take the blood lineage. God did not permit partnership and property ownership to the angels. Therefore, Satan does not own blood lineage or property.
Humanity, centered on the United States, are all tending towards individualism and private lifestyles. At the time of the Second Advent the Christian world represents the realm of the bride. The Christian world is the base of the bride culture. Their position is to welcome the coming bridegroom, the Lord of the Second Advent. At the time of the fall, Eve chased out her real husband. After World War II the Christian culture was completely victorious over the world. But the Christian culture is only a spiritual foundation, not a physical foundation. At the time of World War II England, a Christian country, held the position of the mother and bride.
The reason that the bride's position is only spiritual is because Jesus' body was lost. No matter the hardship, Eve's position is to make restoration of the lost body. In this world man stands in the position of king. King is subject. Woman is not subject, no matter how proud a position they possess the object cannot control the subject. American women, be careful. Women need to follow behind their husbands. I can feel that American women don't feel so good about that idea. No matter how you may feel, you have to take an opposite way from now on. America needs Divine Principle. This is not Father's viewpoint, this is the divine perspective. You have to know that clearly. Women have wide hips like a cushion whereas man has narrow hips and wide shoulders. So you see they compliment one another; woman is wide at the hips and man is wide at the shoulders. Combined into one they make a square box, a secure foundation.
Beautiful American women have been so admired, but from now on things will be different. Be careful you American women. Women have the role to make the original family foundation. The fallen starting point has created such ignorance within humanity. How can they choose the correct way now? It is complicated In the Last Days this ignorance will be eradicated and a new starting point, based on ideal family life, will emerge. When in the future time will we welcome that real absolute love-centered husband? In the Last Days such a man will emerge, the True Father of mankind. The True Parents will be the source of true love, true life and true lineage.
Humanity needs to become engrafted onto to these True Parents, to this true love, true life and true lineage. After the fall all humanity connected to a false love, false life and false lineage seed. We have to make this turned right side up. This has to be clear. No matter how famous, powerful and knowledgeable the people of this world might be, they are all under the fallen realm of Satan. How to reform this Satanic world is through True Parents' true love, true life and true lineage.
Satan is the king of sex. He has broken the ideal world and expanded the world of free sex. This is completely connected with Satan. How can this be restored to the original position of ideal husband and wife? The fallen world cannot accomplish this. God has to send the true love owner, true husband. At the time of the Second Advent, true love owner and God connect into one. The coming Messiah is the complete Adam physically on this world. How can God's true love and humankind's true love connect in one settlement? The starting point is the act of marriage between ideal husband and wife. Then the love owner who is God, descends vertically into that union. The fountain of the lineage is humanity's sexual organ. This is the original true love starting place. True love parents connecting with that ideal love palace. This is the original starting point of true love, true life and true lineage connected with God.
The worst parents, our original ancestors, sowed the seeds of ignorance through the fall. True Parents re-established the one clear direction of God's true lineage again on the earth. This truth is now available to all humankind through True Parents victorious foundation. Mankind has the opportunity to reconnect with the original true blood lineage of God. The five senses can dwell in the realm of God's absolute, unchanging and eternal love. Every woman desires an absolute, unchanging, true love partner. Every man desires an absolute unchanging true love partner.
Within true man and woman's sexual organ, true love, true life and true lineage is contained. The true Kingdom of Heaven on Earth appears from this point. God's original ideal begins at this very point. That means this place is more precious than anything. It is more precious than life itself. This is the starting point of the Kingdom of Heaven. Men and women's freedom depend upon the integrity and absolute goodness of their sexual organs. The abuse of this most precious place is the worst crime. The world we see today is the kingdom of hell because of the abuse of this sacred place. You have to know this clearly. Because of the fall all of humanity are prisoners in Satan's jail. God has suffered in misery being unable to embrace His children until now.
The liberation of God and man begins with the establishment of a true love couple, true love family, true love tribe, true love nation, true love world and true love kingdom of heaven on the earth. Otherwise God can never be liberated. Mankind dwell in the realm of the fallen lost love, fallen blood lineage, and fallen life. They cannot be free in this realm of death. This is not Reverend Moon's concept. This is the universal historical concept. Is this clear? You have the understand this miserable situation. Thousands and thousands of years God has endured such a miserable situation. Because of whom? Woman and man. The liberating action of men and women is the providential history of restoration.
Father's entire life has been sacrificed and dedicated to re- establishing God's original ideal of creation on the earth. Satan has hated Father the most and has persecuted Father at every turn. However, Father has never been defeated. Throughout Father's life, every level of society has come against him and considered him and his followers the worst of enemies. Satan's world have protested loudly against Reverend Moon. However, Father has never been defeated by their opposition. Father has only grown stronger and continued to expand his victorious foundation on this earth. America has not been victorious over Reverend Moon in spite of the infamous court case against him and his unjust imprisonment. Father has only triumphed. Now this is being understood day by day.
The purpose of humanity is to make restoration of the family. In order to discover this purpose, they have to find True Parents, the true ancestor. True Parents contain, true love, true life, true lineage and true family atmosphere. In the realm of the fallen world there are no such thing as real love couples, real love parents, real love children, no real love elder brother and sister, no real love younger brother and sister, no real love grandparents. There is a prevailing attitude of uncaring. Therefore the atmosphere of free sex and homosexuality can prevail.
Ever since Father declared this True Parents Day thirty six years ago, we have been celebrating this day each year in order to find the true son. Without having a true son, True Parents name doesn't mean anything. Without true family there is no foundation for a true nation. Without having true nations in this world there is no way to build a true kingdom. Without having a subject and object nothing can exist. Parents position is subject position, children's position is object position. When they unite into one they can exist for eternity. Everything within the universe operates within this subject and object relationship.
Children need their subject. As long as children have their subject, their parents, upon this foundation history can continue. Without this relationship there is no foundation upon which history can stand. Regardless of your sex, if you practice free sex then your lineage will become extinct within one generation. Those families and nations that consume drugs will become destroyed. By taking drugs what kind of benefit can you obtain? Do you gain anything eventually from becoming an alcoholic? Do you gain anything from smoking? In today's society heavy smoking is being outlawed. There is no smoking in public places anymore.
What are True Parents? True Parents have the most powerful fighting skill. Because God is the most powerful, omnipotent Being, and being the son of God Father has such a power. Do you imagine God to be silent or always talkative? Heavenly Father is the king of silence. During the 6,000 years of human history how many millions of times and billions of people have cursed God. They have complained against God and did every possible evil thing against Him. Some have claimed there is no God. In spite of all of this God has done no harm to humanity. Why? Why do you think God has endured so patiently? He has been waiting for the day when the true human beings would appear and change all of humanity around and turn them into the true children of God. This is the mission of the Unification Church members.
During half a century Father has been undertaking public mission work for the sake of humanity. However, Father has had to endure an incredible amount of abuse, negativity and misunderstanding. Yet Father has never taken revenge on those who treated him wrongly. Because Father wants to save and restore all people who have opposed him. Some people wonder why Father is so quiet in the face of such unjust persecution. Father knows that all of the negativity and opposition which comes through our five senses will eventually disappear. This is only a temporary phenomena. It will not exist eternally. Therefore, if Father deals with this temporary phenomena it will create a scar on his eternal life. That is why Father has not paid attention to it.
We must understand that America was originally in the position of the bride country. If, centered upon Christianity, directly after World War II America had been united with and received the Lord of the Second Advent as the bridegroom, then the world could have been restored. However, America including Christianity, has failed. America has been like an enemy nation towards Father. But when Father came to this country he poured every ounce of energy, sweat and blood for the sake of this country whilst enduring silently. That is why two days ago when Father gave such a declaration to the people of America in Washington DC, silent God, who has been watching Reverend Moon all of these years, was there to support Reverend Moon. God has been following Reverend Moon all these silent lonely years.
Because of Satan, Reverend Moon has been living an imprisoned life, now God has every right to liberate him and give him privilege to do whatever he wants to do. You must know that the history of the Unification Church centered upon True Father, has been the history of han. However, the era of new Spring is dawning. It means every possible life is now germinating and spreading throughout the world. We are heading towards summer time in God's ideal providence. This is the time of God's and True Parents' seed, the seed of equalization. It is a forever expanding seed.
Within this world there is no individual whom God loves more than Reverend Moon. There is no one else who knows God more than Reverend Moon. In some way Father looks like a swindler with a big head and nose. If you don't want to, don't trust him. Father doesn't care whether you believe Father or not. It is entirely your choice. But don't you agree that there is no one else in this world who knows as much about God as Reverend Moon does? (YES) (Applause) Once someone knows all the secrets of God he has only two choices, either he can manipulate the knowledge he has obtained and become a swindler and cheat; or because of this information he can become the true son through his practice of this truth. The road of practice of this truth has been the way of True Parents. This is the true way for humankind.
We need to understand that even though Reverend Moon has been walking the path of the truth of God throughout his entire life, and we blessed couples and some tribes have been created by Reverend Moon, but True Father's role has been contained within the Unification Church. Therefore, we need a heavenly sovereignty of at least one nation which can deal with God directly. That is our goal and we are still pursuing this goal. Eventually this one nation under God will be expanded to the sphere of one world under God. But there is no such notion within this existing world. However, Father will accomplish this.
One nation under God is the motto upon which this America was founded. However, their goal was to create one world under God. This was supposed to have come about through receiving the Lord of the Second Advent. But due to their failure to receive the Lord of the Second Advent right after World War II, America didn't even come to understand the notion of one world under God. Therefore, if America continues on its present path it will have no future. America still has a long way to go in order to reach one world under God. Unification Church not only have the notion of one world under God, but also we have the understanding of one love under the cosmos. Because God Himself bows down to love.
You are all influenced by individualism and the concept of privacy, and as long as these rule your lives you are committing suicide. In reality there are thousands of young people ruining their lives. We must understand that we have such an important task. Even this True Parents Day celebration has to move through different stages, from individual level, family level, society and national levels. Finally it has to reach to the world wide level because True Parents have already established enough victorious foundation world wide. We have to follow True Parents directions so that we are able to accomplish our final goal.
Have you ever seen the silk worm? The silk worm produces silk from its mouth. When does this silk worm produce this silk? It is when the silk worm reaches the point when it has to be transformed into another stage of life. In other words the silk worm has to die and then the silk is produced. The silk is the substance for its cocoon. When the time of maturity arrives it makes a hole in its cocoon and emerges as a butterfly. Unification Church members are now in the stage of silk worms who are fully grown and mature. We should have enough silk inside of our wombs in order to produce our cocoon. Since the quality of silk is so good that once you build a cocoon then nobody else will be able to penetrate it except your own teeth from inside. We are now in the end time and we are surrounded by our protection which nothing can invade. Do you understand? Then eventually we can emerge as butterflies, flying freely. That means our liberation. Then we can fly up to God's throne without any difficulty. That kind of world is the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. It is filled with freedom. What beautiful children you will be.
Once we are able to make a hole in our cocoons and fly freely then we can truly celebrate True Parents Day. Whether I like it or not, I am a part of the universe. I am a product of the creation, one of the millions of eggs in existence because of creation and because of the universe. This wonderful seed represents manhood, womanhood which, when combined into one through love represents God's hyung sang and sung sang, . . .
