“Congratulations to all the newly blessed families who have received the Blessing today”.
The title of my message today is “Human Civilization in Heaven’s Providence and Our Responsibility Today.” When we look at the world today, we see we are heading in a direction that will not solve our many problems. We are facing the conclusion that we cannot unite with ideologies or ideas that are self-centered. Therefore, we need to understand what kind of being the Creator God, the Owner of the universe, is. We know that the Creator created all things in His image. He lastly created a man and a woman who would become our ancestors. He gave these people a period in which to grow as well as a responsibility to complete. Through this growth period, they should have matured as beautiful people and advanced to the position to receive Heaven’s Blessing. However, these people developed self-centered desire. That is how today’s fallen humankind came to be without any relation to God’s ideal of creation.
Up until now, history has been filled with war and conflict. However, the Creator is all-knowing and almighty. His beginning and end is the same. The purpose of Creation that He envisioned must be achieved. Yet on the basis of giving human beings their own responsibility, Heaven has no choice but to carry out the history of the providence of salvation. In a fallen world, He established a nation of chosen people who would pursue good. He finally sent the Messiah, Jesus Christ, which He promised to the chosen people for the first time in four thousand years. However, the Israelites did not understand Jesus’ essence. They could not provide the environmental realm necessary for Jesus to work on earth. Jesus had no choice but to go the path of the cross upon which he said he would come again. Christianity began with the revival of the Holy Spirit through Jesus’ disciples that were waiting for his return. Rome officially recognized Christianity and Christianity traveled from the Italian peninsula across the European continent to the island of Great Britain. Several nations centering on Great Britain went out to the world carrying the Bible of Christ. However, they were unaware of Jesus’ essence. Jesus said to love our neighbors as ourselves. Yet these people put their own countries first and a civilization that stole from others emerged. Therefore, the Atlantic cultural sphere came to an end.
However, Heaven’s providence moved on. Jesus said that he would come again and host the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. Hence, in the Last Days the only begotten Daughter of God must be born to become Jesus’ partner. Heaven cannot continue His providence through the people of Israel, who failed in their responsibility, because indemnity remains with them.
In 1943, to begin a new providence Heaven sent the only begotten Daughter to be born on the Korean Peninsula in Asia. In 1945, Korea was liberated (from Japanese occupation) yet it was divided between North and South. Then in 1950, the Korean War broke out. I had mentioned that according to Heaven’s Principle of Creation, human beings were given a growth period. At the time, South Korea was a democratic nation, but did not have the power to resist communism. God finally caused His only begotten Daughter to appear for the first time in six thousand years, for the sake of the completion of the providence. He would therefore not leave her in situation where her very life was in danger. Back then, Korea was not known to the world. So how was it that 16 UN nations came to shed the blood of their good men for our sake? In a nutshell, it was a holy war.
I understood Heaven’s providence and in 1960, I rose to the position of a True Parent. Fallen human beings cannot directly stand before God. You cannot go before Him without being reborn through the Blessing given by True Parents. However, the Christian foundation failed to create the environment for True Parents’ birth. In such a situation, True Parents began with the Blessing of three families in 1960. Next year will be the 60th anniversary of the Blessing and now we have many blessed families, in 190 countries of the world.
Now, centering on True Mother, the only begotten Daughter, a Blessing history that transcends religion, ideology and nation, is beginning. People cannot reach perfection if they are ignorant. They must learn how the providence is unfolding. The only people in the world that can tell you about the providence are the True Parents. Now a new age and new history have begun in Heaven’s providence. It is the 7th year of Cheon Il Guk. You who have received the Blessing today have become citizens of Cheon Il Guk as children whom Heavenly Parent can embrace.
The Blessing comes with responsibility. Each of you, as blessed families, should become tribal messiahs. Through you, all the citizens of Taiwan should receive Heaven’s Blessing so that you can become a blessed, Heavenly Taiwan. Will you do this?
Looking at you today, through fulfilling your responsibility, the ultimate goal is not only to build a unified Greater China, which is your wish, but also to build a unified family, one family under God, centering on our Heavenly Parent. Under our Heavenly Parent, when all people in the 200-plus countries in the world become His children, war and conflict will cease to exist. We, and our earth that we need to live in forever, are suffering because of our ignorance. Advance to the world by going beyond your tribe, people and nation. You are the island that can act the quickest in response to the need to realize the dream of one human family centered on our one Heavenly Parent.
History has opened the doors to the era of the Pacific civilization. The leading bodies in the Pacific civilization include the Korean peninsula and several nations across the Pacific islands and Asia. That is why I have advocated for and proclaimed the Asia-Pacific Union. The many Asian countries should attend Heaven as one system centering on Heavenly Parent and bring His providence to completion. I bless Taiwan to stand in the position of a nation that fulfills its responsibility.
The history of human civilization was once centered on the Italian Peninsula, from where it traveled around the world to connect to the Korean Peninsula to begin a new era and a new history. In that regard, when Taiwan and Japan stand at the forefront of the Asian continent to fulfill their responsibility in this era of the Pacific civilization through the true love of the Hyojeong Movement centering on Heaven, our second- and third-generation members will continue to ride the strong waves of Cheon Il Guk.
I have no doubt that our blessed children loved by God will bring the world together into an everlasting harmony that they can be proud of. We have only hope. You who have received the Blessing today, I pray that, through your second- and third-generation, all citizens will become filial sons and daughters and loyal patriots as blessed families that praise, glorify, appreciate, and sing of Heaven’s love, for the completion of Heaven’s providence.”
