The Long, Necessary Course to Unity 
True Mother spoke to the participants and speakers at the Japan Summit Leadership Conference 2019 (JSLC 2019) on October 5 in the Nagoya Castle Hotel. This is a translation of what she said that day. 

Honored guests from Japan and elsewhere around the world, respected leaders of various fields, ladies and gentlemen: 
We came here today concerned about what we could do to achieve a peaceful world void of war and conflict. Heavenly Parent is advancing toward the completion of the providence and we are here to address historical facts that must be resolute about fulfilling Heavenly Parent’s dream. When we look at the numerous problems that exist in the world today, large and small nations are unable to unite because they each put the self-centered needs of their own nation first. You and I both know that they have reached the limit of their self-centered efforts. Therefore, if we can create an environment in which we can attend God, the Creator of the universe, our problems will take a turn for the better. 
From the biblical perspective of the six-thousand-year human history, the recent wars, World War I and World War II, caused terrible pain and sacrifice. The United Nations was founded to build a peaceful world with no more war. Next year marks the seventy-fifth anniversary of the UN’s founding; however, they still have no answer for unification or the need for harmony. Originally, the Creator, God, made all things in his image and he created a man and a woman who would become humankind’s ancestors. Then, he gave these human beings responsibilities. They should have matured of their own accord and reached a position in which they could receive God’s blessing. However, that did not happen. Instead, they created the fallen world of today. Up until now, righteous people have appeared in every corner of the world, yet the peaceful world that humankind hopes for is still distant. Fallen human beings must change on their own. To teach human beings until now, God has allowed for different religions to emerge in every region of the world. However, these religions, too, do not realize what their purpose is. They do not know how to conclude, how to reach completion. God is omniscient and omnipotent. He is the Alpha and Omega. He is eternal. Such a God cannot fail. The issue is that God gave responsibilities to human beings. Therefore, the only way God can help is for a victorious human being to appear among fallen human beings and reach perfection on his own. To accomplish this, God made the Israelites his chosen people and carried out the providence of restoration through indemnity for the salvation of humankind, starting from the individual up until the national foundation formed. How wearisome, how exhausting, was this indemnity that it took four thousand years? 

The Crucifixion 
After four thousand years, God was able to send Jesus Christ, whom he could refer to as "My son,” God’s only son. That is how God sent the Messiah, whom the people of Israel had so longed for. But what happened? Mary, who had given birth to Jesus, did not fulfill her responsibilities. The Israelites did not unite with Jesus. In the end, Jesus lost the entire prepared environment. As he was dying on the cross, he said he would come again. However, today’s Christians believe that they attain salvation through Jesus’ blood shed on the cross. How painful is this to God? God cannot bear to look upon Jesus, who had endured being forced to go the way of the cross after only thirty-three years of life. Two thousand years ago, Christianity started through the Apostles, and the Holy Spirit led Christianity after resurrection. However, being human, they made many mistakes. What is Christianity’s mission? They must become aware of Jesus’ essence. They must be able to explain who God is clearly. Yet, Christians of today do not understand God. Every day, they look at Jesus hanging on the cross; they built a human-centered system that does not explain God’s circumstances and then confined their faith to that system. This is the reality of today’s Christian culture. 

Korea’s illuminating role
I want to tell you the truth about the providence and the truth about history. A hundred years ago, the Indian poet-saint [Rabindranath] Tagore (the first Asian to win the Nobel Prize [1913] made a prediction. When Japan was still occupying Korea, he visited Japan [in 1929] and wrote, "In the golden age of Asia, Korea was one of its lamp bearers. And that lamp is waiting to be lighted once again for the illumination of the East." 
Light is Truth. It is the God’s word. What all humankind hopes and longs for is not truth centered on human beings; humankind awaits God's word, to serve him. When God chooses a people but the people fail to fulfill their responsibilities, indemnity remains…. However, in the face of the completion of God’s providence, for the first time in two thousand years, to bring forth his only begotten daughter, God had to find a new chosen people. God chose the Korean people. The Korean people hate war. Therefore, pressured by outside forces, they moved south in search of freedom and eventually settled on the Korean Peninsula. 

Sixteen nations 
To complete God’s providence, God’s only begotten daughter had to be born. Therefore, on the Christian foundation, in 1943, God’s only begotten daughter was born among the Korean people. 
However, events that neither democracy nor communism could predict are occurring throughout the world. From the perspective of the principles of creation, God gave human beings time. God needed to give time for God’s only begotten daughter, born in 1943, to mature. When, the Korean War broke out, how could sixteen nations come to South Korea’s aid? It was not through human power. God was with them. 
Before coming here, I held a rally in the Gyeongwon Sub-Region. That district is an area where good young soldiers from the sixteen nations shed blood in the Korean War. In the Gangwon area, especially, the African soldiers from Ethiopia fought in more than two hundred battles and never lost. I mobilized the Little Angels to comfort these survivors and veterans before they pass into the spirit world. However, that is not enough to express the full extent of our gratitude. Therefore, I asked that we do our best so that each of the sixteen nations that took part in the Korean War can advance to a position in which they can receive God’s blessings. That is right. Even in the world, having a good heart is knowing how to recognize and return a favor received. 
It is the same for mistakes. I want to make a request to Japan. The current politicians and leaders of this nation must plead for forgiveness for the mistakes their ancestors committed in the past while not knowing God. That is the moral duty of a human being. Then, let us become one for the sake of world peace. We must do so to become a people that God can love; please do not forget that. I said that people must change. 

It is time to come together
People in the fallen world today want to appear in God’s presence. They want to receive God’s grace and love. However, there is the flawed “line of demarcation” [a “DMZ”] called Satan and they need to cross over that line. Therefore, God’s providence gave birth to the God’s only son and daughter, who were victorious and who appeared among human beings. True Parents had to open the door of the blessing, of resurrection, through which fallen human beings can be reborn. 
The same holds true for both major powers and smaller countries. We must become one human family under Heavenly Parent. That is God’s dream. There is no future for nations that are leaning away from unification. Heavenly Parent can no longer put it off. Why is that? Because the substantial True Parents, who can guide us back as God’s children, have been born on earth. In other words, those who do not have a blessed marriage from True Parents are not qualified to go to the kingdom of heaven. 
Today, we crave peace. Japan is the closest country to Korea, yet we are growing apart. However, since I am God’s only begotten daughter, the True Mother of humankind and of the universe, if you unite with me, all problems will be solved. When we become individuals and nations that are one with our Creator, God, our Heavenly Parent, you will have nothing to worry about. Therefore, you need to receive education in how to guide ignorant human beings to become true sons or daughters of God, true people, devoid of fallen nature as God had originally intended. Many nations comprise today’s world and each of these nations has its own laws. When we live in a peaceful and united world, would we need Japan’s laws, America’s laws, this law or that law? In a place where brothers and sisters are united centering on God, singing joy and praise to him with absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience, while receiving God’s blessings and love, what more would we need? 

A pledge on Mt. Balwang
However, for six thousand years, humankind has become so obstinate; we cannot restore it to normal in a day. We know it takes time. Therefore, as a True Parent, I established the best environment I could. You are free to take part in this or not. However, I hope that you are intelligent people. If you are currently suffering from something, shouldn’t you build a world in which your beloved children will have a future without that suffering? Don’t we have to create that? If you have the opportunity, I hope you go to Yongpyong Resort in Gangwon Province. There, on top of Mt. Balwang, I promised to return ignorant humanity to God’s bosom as his citizens and his sons and daughters. I will make a torch that will light the way for unenlightened humankind through the gloomy darkness to return to God. Marking the Gangwon rally as the starting point, I have come to the Nagoya rally and afterward I will go to Europe, Asia, Oceania, Africa and Central America. This December, I will take the flame to a rally of thirty thousand Christian ministers in New York City, in North America. 

The leadership needed now
Christian representatives made many mistakes in God’s presence; as a result, the Christian realm lent itself to the emergence of democracy as well as to that of communism. Politics and religion must unite. Today’s politicians must be in a position in which they can hear God’s voice with a humble attitude. They must become public figures that can receive God’s blessings. Look at what is happening in the world today. Selfish people boasting about themselves or countries thinking that they are the best. Things will not go smoothly for them. To begin with, these people cannot possess a humane heart. A person in charge, a parent, embraces his or her children. Such people need to take responsibility as leaders. They must become aware of God, the original owner, the owner of the cosmos. They must become leaders that understand and know God’s dream, God’s hope and humankind’s wish and guide their people in that direction. 

Unsettling changes in nature
They will not achieve this in a single day, but I have built the environment and am educating them. We all know that our original, beautiful planet created by God is suffering from environmental problems. The large countries are polluting the environment the most. If we continue to be bystanders and delay, we cannot guarantee humankind’s future or that of the earth. 
Before, I had only seen typhoons in the summer. They are necessary natural phenomena. However, this year, Korea saw a lot of damage to human lives and property from a typhoon in the middle of autumn. I heard on the news that unexpected incidents also occurred in the United States due to heavy snowstorms and floods. Nature is appealing to us. History will accuse leaders who are careless about this. 

Unity brings change
I do not hope for these things. Starting now, please unite with me and let us build heaven on earth and heaven in heaven as one human family centering on Heavenly Parent. To accomplish this, I have awarded the Sunhak Peace Prize for the third year. The candidates we will announce for 2020 will be representatives from the political and religious sectors. I plan to give the Founders’ Special Prize to a person who has made significant contributions toward saving this deteriorating planet. Soon the committee will announce these individuals. This is what I want: I hope that this country will quickly become a heavenly Japan united with Korea and America, whose leaders attend Heavenly Parent. 
I also plan to announce an organization that can vigorously usher in the era of the Pacific realm civilization in Asia. The Asian and African continental landmasses are home to more than two-thirds of the human population. By uniting with God’s only begotten daughter, True Mother, who is fulfilling Heavenly Parent’s dream, these countries should nurture their children with the heart of a mother and strive for all areas of their country to be healthy. If we make such efforts, we will be able to witness the day humankind can manifest that dream. Distinguished guests and leaders who have come from all over the world to join me on this path, may you as those who received the blessing become people who fulfill their responsibilities today.
