Reverend Sun Myung Moon's Speeches from 1999
Declaration of the Day of Congratulations for True Parents' East and West (Global) Victory
Reverend Sun Myung Moon
This is from a unofficial notes taken by David Stadlehoffer at the speech given at Belvedere, Tarrytown, NY, on Sunday, May 30, 1999, 7:00 a.m.
Most people in the world don't know the content of the Fall of Man. From now on, the entire world will come to know the content of the Divine Principle. In the Old Testament, centering on the Israelites, all the central figures had to cut offerings in two, but they didn't know why. The God of all creation had to shed Satan's blood. After Cain killed Abel there was no foundation in Adam's family. The history from Adam to Jacob was a history of dividing Satan. All the offerings had to be divided.
If there were no Fall, all things would have been united. God had to restore all things. The Lord of the Second Advent comes to restore the original mission of Adam. The New Testament is the history of offering children; therefore there was so much bloodshed. Those who believe that Jesus simply came to die are putting a nail into God's heart. Jesus said that if you seek to live, then you will die; but if you seek to die, you will live." The New Testament era tries to find the bridegroom.
The purpose of the Second Coming is to establish a new foundation. Jews lost their foundation as the chosen people at Jesus' crucifixion. Also Christians have only spiritual salvation. Christians don't know God. But in the future, nobody can avoid Father's providence. Without liberating the spirit world, we can't form unity in the physical world.
Now even Communists are following Rev. Moon. Everyone in the world is a criminal. Who are the enemies of True Parents? America. America opposed Father through Korean Christianity. Father has worked for 24 years in America. Even when Father was in prison he created 6 different organizations. Father even formed the Washington Times during the time of his trial.
Father knows the principle of forgiveness. If he went to South America he could have built up enough power to oppose America, but this is not his desire.
God has worked for 6000 years, and knows the pain and anguish of God. The CIA and the FBI have recorded Father's action everyday. Father has been claiming "One world under God." [Father comments that the American members here today look like statues with no life]
The Old Testament (old promise) was not fulfilled. The New Testament (new promise) was not fulfilled. The history of restoration was necessary because parents were chased out of this world.
We must solve the problem of the corruption of youth. Who can save the young people of this world? Shall we follow Rev. Moon who teaches "One world under God," or shall we follow the American way which teaches "One nation under God?" If Rev. Moon came to America having a white face then the CIA and FBI would long ago have accepted Father, and the world would have nearly been restored.
When there is a fight between God and Satan then only another being, not God, can come and mediate and liberate them using the principle of true love. God cannot mediate for Himself; that is the Messiah's responsibility. Not with the power of force but with the power of love, all of humanity will surrender.
We should study Hon Dok Hae every morning.
The fight is over. Now we have to build the world. We have to offer everything to God. God will say "actually, it is all yours, my children". Although America has been prosperous, Americans should have the concept that they don't own anything and offer everything to the world. In the ideal world we will dance and commune with God; everything will be shared.
[Father asked everyone to shout and recite theses words three times "I AM THE PRINCE OF THE COMPLETED TESTAMENT AGE!"]
Over 54 years ago Father wanted to give the Blessing to virgins. He wanted to bless nuns and priests, and monks, etc. not only in Catholicism, but of other denominations and religions. His original intention was to bless young, pure, second generation children.
In taking back God's children from the satanic world we must use power. Reach out to second generation young couples. God can't do it. We have to be His voice, his bodies.
In the Bible Jesus taught us that if we seek to gain our lives, we will lose our lives, but if we seek to lose our lives, for his sake, we will gain our lives. If we are dying by fasting Father will come to rescue you. We must save the young people of this world, at the risk of our lives. We must save the elementary children, we must save the middle school children, we must save the high school youth, we must even save the newly married young couples.
Because we are now ready to take responsibility, Father can go to his hometown, pass into the spirit world. [many people shout "no"] Now we are ready to go to the front-line.
If we use photo albums of blessed couples, the young people will get inspired to see so many wonderful matches made by Father. They will want to get matched by Rev. Moon. [Father said that it was not good for some people to be eating and also moving about. He said that today is a Holy Day and they should not eat until lunchtime. Also people to resist using the bathroom until the end. Father is almost 80 you are still young]
We have to understand the sin of Satan. He made a young boy and girl to fall. The over 400 million youths who will receive the Blessing will be in the position of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. Now there is no gate to Hell. All is liberated. The ideal world is a world of peace, no suffering, no pain. The innocent young people must be liberated. The spirit world will be liberated to assist in their blessing and protection.
Satan can be forgiven and liberated by helping with the Blessing of 400 million. The 400 million couples who were blessed in 1999 can be the foundation for the 400 million youth blessing. Just one youth for every couple. The spirit world must be mobilized. They will even resort to force if their descendants on earth do not respond. Saints and sages in the spirit world are ready to help. We have to bring people. Don't be defeated by Satan.
Satan has been leading 5 billion. We can't restore all these people by "my" power, but only by the power of True Parents can we do it. The True Parents' tree is bigger than Satan's. We should say to ourselves, "I am representing True Parents". We want to make this truth spread out all over the world. We engraft Satan's branches to True Parent's tree. If we do this, will Satan rest? Satan is a servant. But we are sons and daughters. So we must work harder. Father gave us a secret. Don't be defeated by Satan; we should be the victors. We have to see ourselves as victors because if we are told by Father to fast, for example, we could do it. Can we bring 120 young people back to God? Time to make a decision.
We should use the ambassadors. [Father throws 7 bananas out to the audience] Who caught a banana? Raise your hand. The banana represents fruition, year round, because bananas can be harvested year round. Those who caught a banana, can you bring 700 youth to the Blessing? How about 7000 each? Suppose the president of the United States was a blessed member, then we could mobilize the power of God!
Unless we take over the young Christians then the Communists will take them, or other religions. Jesus Christ was sent to save America. Jesus' couple lives in Belvedere. Whenever you visit Jesus' home would it not be appropriate to greet Jesus' couple?
Are we mobilizing the spirit world? Our ancestors may challenge us, punish us. But if we are still lazy and resist, we may be taken to the spirit world. The spirit world obeys Father.
On May 14, 1999 Father held the Universal Liberation Ceremony in Pantanal, South America. Last year, Father had a showdown prayer to God on May 13 to May 15, 1998 in preparation for Blessing 98 on June 13. So the middle date, May 14 is the representative date. 14 equals 10 plus 4. 10 represents God, and 4 represents the four position foundation. So Pantanal is the holy ground of holy grounds. Everyone should visit there. There are 16 days to June 14, or 8 times 2 days. Eight is the number for a new start. We should have confidence that the entire spirit world is on our side. [Father spoke about Lady General Kim and Rev. Oh, and Rev, Kwak. Father asked Dr. Shimmyo of the Seminary if he could sell his wife to save the world. Father said that if we really could sell our wife to sell the world, we should be willing to do that]
The American embassies around the world should be mobilized to cooperate for the Blessing of 400 million youth, because it was the Americans abroad who contaminated the world. Father may send thousands of more Japanese sisters out to work with the American embassies around the world.
All of the world will become our friends; even criminals. There should not be a wall between people. How much God has labored to prepare this time! We are a heavenly warehouse in which all of God's historical effort has been stored. We have to follow in Father's footsteps. If Father says that something is sweet, then even if we think it is sour, still you say... "sweet". This is a deeper and higher form of obedience. Bringing 7700 people to God is our individual goal. If government officials refuse to cooperate with us then we can scold them and confront them. If we visit a country, we have to think big. "I am God's messenger to change the destiny of this country."
Father doesn't like to hear an interpreter, because Father knows enough English to know that the translation is inadequate full of mistakes. Using an interpreter is a sin for this reason. You should invite Koreans to your home to learn Korean even if you have to pay them a lot of money.
Advanced countries took wealth from other countries. Is Father an old man or a young man? [many shout "young man"] The Hon Dok Hae tradition is bequeathed to us from Father.
Please offer a special prayer condition between now and June 14 (True Day of All Things). This is a condition to inherit from True Parents.
