True Mother’s Message
The Month of Harvest and Liberation
Hoondokhae on October 1, 2014, Cheon Jeong Gung
October is usually called the month of liberation and the month of harvest, isn’t it? Have you all been working hard on the harvest? You say that you follow the way of God’s will, but you have been weak in preparing for the future. What are your dreams? Aren’t most of you here in your late fifties? The young people from the witnessing revival group; please stand up. Everyone else, except for you, is aged. Though they have lived for more than fifty years, there is no guarantee that they will live for more than fifty years in the remainder of their lives. Then, what were your dreams and when will they come true? A person who has not been able to establish a successor cannot achieve that dream.
Among Korean members are many age gaps. I have been looking for leaders that can ignite a new youth movement; sadly, I can’t find anyone. You must repent a lot. From the position of parents, how…..? You are supposed to open the way for your children. You had to emulate True Parents. You said you would love, respect and attend True Parents throughout their lives, but what happened to achieving their dreams? This must not finish within your generation. You must strengthen the foundation and environment that will enable this dream to be continued, developed and realized. A person with a dream is young, even at the age of seventy. No matter how young you may be, if you do not have any dream, you just end up drifting away
What did the hoondokhae reading we just did say about the physical world? It said this is where we prepare to harvest grain for the other world. Intact ripe grain uneaten by bugs! Only when that grain is stored in the heavenly warehouse, can our Heavenly Parent love you. Our lives here on earth are a short moment. You have repeatedly heard that the physical world is where we prepare for life in the other world, the eternal world. From now on, put your faith in practice and act to fulfill that dream. Isn’t Cheon Il Guk the substantiation of that dream?
While looking at the golden waves in the fields, many memories came to me. I wondered whether farmers were happy now that the harvest season has arrived. However, on the contrary, I heard that they have more worries. Our farmers in Korea are struggling with the issue of rice importation to Korea. All nations must be able to all live well. Though we are said to be going in this direction, some places may suffer disadvantages in the distribution process. This is because there is no true owner in this country or the world. You must attend True Parents. A single word from True Parents should be able to put everything in order, but because this isn’t the situation, people keep fighting and disputing issues. When you observe that, don’t you feel anything?
Can I hold on to this dream of hope and have hope in you? [Yes] I ask the young people, in particular to develop dreams through which your courage saves the nation and the world. Do you understand? [Yes!] What matters is the beginning. You are truly blessed people. Even if you have received the same amount of blessings, the person that develops those blessings well and expands the good environment through that becomes a noble person, doesn’t he? Those that fail to do that just drift away. If you are wise people, what should you do? In addition, you received the blessing in True Parents’ name and now have second- and third-generation children. In light of that, how will your future descendants—hundreds or thousands of years from now—assess you?
Heaven is alive. I receive reports from the special emissaries to each region almost every day. No matter what the environment, once a seed was planted, it grew. It bore fruit. This is amazing. I received a report from the special emissary to the Middle East. One cannot freely witness in the Middle East environment. Blessed families there, however, have settled and preserved their families with a standard of absolute faith and absolute obedience in such remote areas and are making the effort to find ways to restore their tribes. According to the special emissary, he is greatly moved by these members in the field and goes on tours with a heart of gratitude. Motivated by the word alone, these blessed families are determined to work hard throughout their lives and bury their bones in the country. You, however, live in a different environment. Here, you are receiving a lot of support. Among these blessed family members, there is one member who is making all kinds of effort to realize this dream despite the severely constricted environment. When asked how much support he needed to continue the work, he replied he needed only $500.
You must repent a lot. Those following the way of God’s will from a very comfortable position must repent. In order to do that, you must witness a lot. If you do not witness and just keep receiving grace without bringing results, you—who are in the same position as those dedicated blessed members—will be in debt. I felt sorry for not paying much attention to them until now. That is why I appointed special emissaries and plan to give them a lot of support. In order to do that, the Korean church must witness a lot and become a central nation that can send many missionaries around the world. Isn’t that correct? Korea must become the source nation. However, it has not been able to do that, has it?
In light of this, I am greatly interested in CARP and the youth movement. Do you understand? [Yes!] This also applies to providential organizations. Isn’t our goal Cheon Il Guk? We should become devoted children and patriots that bring forth many Cheon Il Guk citizens. Isn’t this how you can save your tribe and liberate humankind? While I am on earth, you must let all seven billion people know of True Parents’ emergence. They are in a very pitiable position without knowing about True Parents. You must have that sense of responsibility. If you have not been able to guide your children to this standard, witness to them and guide them to it. Do you understand? [Yes!]
The season of harvest is a good season for witnessing. Please print the slogan “We are brothers and sisters that realize the dream” on vests or jackets and ask the members of the witnessing revival group to wear them. Then many people would wonder what the dream is when they see it. So please make it look nice. [Applause] We are in an era different than those of the past. We must be ahead when it comes to witnessing methods. And you must start in gratitude and joy. Isn’t finding one life a joyful thing? The outside world is gradually collapsing. Isn’t the fertility rate in Korea the lowest? Our young people must witness and change people’s mind-set. True Parents, the path we are following and our vision alone can save the world. Only True Parents can save this country, bring unity between the two Koreas and bring together Asia and the world. This is greatly hopeful. Just as True Father said, isn’t God giving us results equal to our efforts? Do you understand? [Yes!]
Please guide the revival group well. They are restarting with fresh determination. Please pray that they succeed so that our young people awaken and the church revives. When this happens, the whole church will live. This is our joy. Not so long ago, Rev. Lee Yo-han celebrated his ninety-ninth birthday, didn’t he? Is he still very strong? I sincerely hope that you all live as long as he does and greatly expand the good environment.
