True Mother’s Message at the Japanese WFWP Meeting, Cheon Jeong Gung
God created all things in heaven and on earth, and then created Adam and Eve. He had a big dream. Yet, did that dream come true? Because of Adam and Eve’s mistake, God’s providential history was actually a miserable course filled with indescribable hardships and suffering. Yet, because he could not leave fallen humanity as it was, God began creating the right environment to save humanity.
Heaven chose the people of Israel and for a long time, four thousand years, his only concern was how to bring his children, who had fallen into Satan’s realm, back into his embrace. He continuously established a central figure and continued the providence of restoration.
Abraham was the son of an idol maker. Abraham was a person Heaven could not choose; yet when Heaven chose him and called him to leave Ur of the Chaldees with absolute obedience and faith, he left his native city with an absolute and obedient heart. Abraham was then eligible to be in the position of an ancestor Heaven could establish. Through Isaac and down to Jacob, Heaven worked to find a family he could embrace in the fallen world and thereby establish a nation; this was Jacob’s course.
Thanks to the cooperation of Jacob’s mother, Jacob was able to obtain the first son’s right of inheritance. Then what happened? There was a period of indemnity, right? After twenty-one years, didn’t Jacob take his family and bring Esau to surrender? Thanks to that, the foundation upon which Israel could be a nation was established. This is an amazing revolution.
Through WFWP you were sent out and you have been active for twenty-one years. Should I praise you for your hard work, saying that the results of your work can accelerate the realization of Cheon Il Guk? Your effort, however, is still weak from Heaven’s perspective.
There are still seven billion people waiting for us. I cannot help embracing them because I am a True Parent. However, can True Parents do it alone? Blessed families that are following True Parents must take the lead. We must therefore be able to embrace all seven billion people and bring them into our Heavenly Parents’ bosom.
One big world… This should not remain imaginary. We are living in a time when we can truly work toward realizing it. We have True Parents with us. I just mentioned the story of Abraham. Abraham’s faith became the basis on which Heaven could send his only son through the nation of Israel. How great a blessing is this to fallen humanity! Yet, did the people in those days receive the son well? Heaven sent his only son to the people of Israel after a long wait and after raising them for four thousand years. Yet, the people of Israel and Judaism ended up sending God’s son to the cross.
Jesus, however, said that he would come again. The only-begotten son that God could love since the Fall appeared for the first time. What do you think our Heavenly Parents’ heart would have been like when he had to send his only son to Heaven?
Heaven asked us to educate ignorant human beings and embrace them; he asked us to do so through his son, through one in his lineage, through the Messiah. Imagine what God’s heart would have been like then. Yet, the providence had to continue.
God’s only begotten son cannot do it alone. God’s only daughter is needed. Do you know that the six-thousand-year providence was also about finding and raising God’s only daughter? God did this even during Jesus’ time. However, it did not bear fruit. History remembers God’s only son and not God’s only daughter.
Isn’t the providence of Christianity one that is in search of the bride? The providence was also about looking for God’s only daughter. You know about Father, but not about Mother.
Satan became the king of the fallen world. In order to restore fallen humanity, Heaven raised figures that overcome all conditions that gave rise to Satan’s accusations. Since Satan had become the king, Heaven had to find his only daughter through a good dynasty. Does that make sense?
When a central figure that Heaven chose and worked through failed to fulfill the given responsibility, Heaven did not work again through the same person. We know all this through the Divine Principle. Since the people of Israel failed, they could no longer wait for God’s only daughter.
If you study more in the future, you will come to understand the background through which Heaven chose Korea a long time ago as the nation where the Messiah would return. Before the Kojoseon era, the Han Dynasty existed; it was a good dynasty. Through the succession of this line, the providence was steadily connected.This is True Mother’s history.
My maternal grandmother was Jo Won-mo. Starting from my grandmother to Hong Sun-ae (Daemonim) and me, we are the only daughters in three generations. Father once said that for a woman to become the mother of the universe, she had to come from three-generations of in which she was the only daughter in the family. This shows us how Heaven prepared the environment for this one time. Think about it.
Heaven created all things before he created Adam and Eve. He first created an environment for them. This also applies to the providence. I am saying that Heaven’s work is amazing.
In other words, the mother of the universe did not suddenly appear after the returning Messiah came. This result comes from establishing indemnity conditions that freed her from Satan’s conditions in the long providential course.
That is why I was born; it was around the time of my birth that Christianity entered Korea. Before that, Korea was a Buddhist and Confucian nation. It hasn’t been long since Christianity entered Korea. Christianity first entered through northern Korea. A lot of spiritual phenomenon occurred centered on Pyeongyang then. When many Christians were waiting for the returning Messiah to come on the clouds, there were spiritual groups waiting for the Messiah to come in the flesh. Why? That was because they were aware of God’s providence. Only by coming in the flesh, can the Messiah become the True Parent. Only by doing so can the lineage of fallen humanity be changed. Blessed families cannot be formed if the Messiah does not become the True Parents. Soon after the liberation, an ideological confrontation, with communists, arose.
Human history often depicts groups collapsing by making many mistakes and then rising again and developing again. History has been this way. There had been no owner. Until the true owner comes, humanity had to go through repeated labor pains. Heaven continued to raise us to stand on the good side in this manner through the work of our original minds.
You have probably heard of this already through Father’s teachings: A spiritual group under Kim Song-do and Heo Ho-bin prepared to receive the Lord at his Second Coming. Dae-mo nim and my grandmother Jo Won-mo were key people in the group. Members of the group genuinely believed that Pyongyang would become the palace of Eden. They did not care about the political situation of the country. They stayed there because they believed that Pyongyang would become the palace of Eden. That was around the time when Korea was about to be divided at the thirty-eighth parallel and many people were fleeing.
It was then that Father received a revelation from Heaven, instructing him to go to North Korea. I was six years old when he came to North Korea. While Father was ministering in North Korea, he was sent to prison by the communist government. That was when Heo Ho-bin was also in prison. Father, who came to know that Heo Ho-bin was in the same prison, asked her to deny everything and be released. You heard that the message was discovered in the process of being conveyed and that Father suffered as a result. Heo Ho-bin’s mother was leading the group then.
I was six years old at the time. She called me and gave me her blessings through a prayer.
What do you think she said in her blessing prayer?
When I was born, Satan tried to kill me, saying, “Because you were born, I will die and descend. Hence, I have to kill you.” Satan already knew who I was. Because he knew it would not be good for him that I live, he tried to kill me. Heaven showed that the time had come for me to be born seventy years ago. Then, why did I end up coming to South Korea?
My uncle, then, was studying pharmacology at Waseda University. However, after graduating, he entered the South Korea Army instead of coming to his hometown. So, my grandmother wanted to come to South Korea to see him. But because she could not come alone, she came down with her daughter and granddaughter.
Others in the group were all waiting in North Korea because they believed that North Korea would become the palace of Eden. Two years after we came to South Korea, the Korean War broke out. After the Korean War started, just before the Han River Bridge was cut off, we were able to cross over the Han River thanks to my uncle’s help. This was no human work. Heaven saved me because the True Parents had to appear. Heaven did such amazing work.
That is why when I met Father and the issue of marriage came up, I already understood the providence. No matter how difficult and hard, I will resolve everything within my generation. I am determined. In the end, if I fail to fulfill it, Father cannot complete it either.
A mother is essential for a child to be born. True Parents appeared on earth, but you should understand how difficult it was for them to come. All seven billion people are indebted to True Parents and our Heavenly Parent. The parental heart gives repeatedly, forgets about it and gives again. True Parents practiced this.
Unification Church members should know about True Mother. You could not have been born if it were not for True Mother. Hence, you should feel thankful that I am still physically living with you while you are working so hard.
I spoke about indemnity. Indemnity should all be brought to an end in your lifetimes. Only then can there be hope for our second generation’s future. Do not give up, saying that it is tough. That is why I will give you Happy Health machines, through which you can maintain good health. True Father left truly big gifts for humanity; one of them is Happy Health.
You should be able to boast about True Mother being alive wherever you go; Is it okay for children not to understand their parents’ language? Father repeatedly said this; I also said that I will not allow those that do not speak Korean to participate in meetings. It is not merely Korean. It is your mother tongue, the language of your parents’ nation. Do not think just because you have aged that you cannot do it; please put in the effort.
If you are in your sixties, I have already given you a blessing. I said that through your devotion and efforts, your life shall be extended by sixty years. Let us fulfill providential history. Think about living until a hundred and twenty. Do you like that or not? Let’s resolve everything within our lifetimes. That’s what I am saying.
We have to build the kingdom of God on earth. I have to build this. Our tribe, our nation. Not our nation. One nation, one world.
We have received so much love and so many blessings from our Heavenly Parent. We are greatly indebted to him. You might feel disappointed about being second in the world, but you are blessed people. You are happy people. You must not shirk your responsibilities.
This world came about because Adam and Eve shirked their responsibilities in the beginning.
They didn’t understand that they had responsibilities—the responsibility to absolutely obey.
He has shown us everything in this manner; what else is there to wish for?
Now you should fulfill your responsibilities as mature children.
