True Parents’ Message 2
“If you want to live up to your faith, you have to move your bodies.”


True Mother gave this message at a special gathering to Korean national messiahs and senior pastors on November 12 at Cheon Jeong Gung.

When we talk about November, we refer to it as the season of harvest and the season of fruition. What about your lives? I do not think those who are sitting here today are in the springtime of their lives. Is it autumn, or is it winter? You were told many times to fulfill your responsibilities as heavenly tribal messiahs. Yet, people tell me that it was difficult because of this and that, and that there are so many situations to consider. If you thought that this was the end, how would you do it? As people who know about the eternal world, if you knew that you could never see another spring again in your lives, what would you do? Especially as people who have pioneered and worked with True Parents while they were on the earth, you have a responsibility. Adam and Eve fell because they were not serious in addressing this issue. 
You just saw on the screen a brief cut about the life of a Monarch butterfly, which is only about three to four centimeters in length. The size of its brain is about the same as the tip of a needle. Yet, a new butterfly born as a larva flies to the very place where other butterflies had gone and died. Isn’t this profound and mysterious? Human beings use a compass and what they have learned to find their way. How could this tiny being with a brain the size of a dot—I mean smaller than what you’d get if you prick something with a needle—navigate to safety and multiply? When we observe these things, we know for a fact that compared to Mother Nature we have led truly shameful lives. Yet, you are people whom Father remembered when he was alive. That is why he said that he would place you in the position of Cheon Il Guk owners in the new era. Think about this. A king cannot exist without his subjects. As you carry out your responsibilities as a national messiah or a tribal messiah, you have to raise people, your subjects. You have to do witnessing. Only then can you fulfill your given responsibilities. A person who fails to fulfill his responsibilities is without a future. Do you want to live in that way and exit without leaving behind a name or a legacy? It should not be that way. The reason why I called you here today is because I love you. I love you all. I want you to advance together with me. [Aju! Applause]
If we had already come to this realization and made effort, we would not have sent off True Father at his seonghwa in this kind of environment. We would have been able to send him off on top of a national foundation. Isn’t that so? When you think about this, do you know how blessed you are that I am alive today? That is why you should not put off fulfilling your responsibilities. Dr. Lek and that couple in the Philippines that was successful both started from nothing. They started by themselves. It can be done if you try. Why have you not been able? Do not put this off until your children’s time. Didn’t I tell you that I would bring an end to the depressing six-thousand year providence of restoration through indemnity in my lifetime? My children also have their own portion of responsibility. Why would you not have it too? I gave you a chance. The conclusion is that you should no longer postpone fulfilling your responsibility. 
I personally enjoy watching nature documentaries. I have watched many. I heard the other day that there is a certain bird that lives in Alaska called the long bill. When preparing for the winter, the long bill flies non-stop for ten days to Austria. So many things in nature put us to shame. Have we ever strenuously made effort, like this bird, for ten days, without eating or sleeping, for the sake of restoring our neighbors, our tribe or our nation? Even this bird, which cannot speak, exerts itself in this way to multiply its own kind. What can we say for human beings who were created as the lords of creation? We are our Heavenly Parent’s masterpiece in all of creation. Should we be any less than a butterfly or a bird? True Parents have taught you this—they taught you everything—how to live and how to bring closure to your lives. When I say bringing closure, I mean making arrangements in your environment so that you can live eternally with True Parents in the eternal world. 
In the early years of the church, when you first encountered God’s word, you were excited and felt as if you could gain the nation and the world at any moment. Over the years many aspects of the environment have formed. The issue now is about you. 
The Bible was translated into English, and then the Puritans crossed the Atlantic in search of freedom of religion and migrated to America. They risked their lives at that time. Later, many of them would starve to death even while they kept the grain they had brought to sow seeds in the coming year. They were thinking about their future generations. 
Let me ask you a question. What is Cheon Il Guk? Shouldn’t you become victors and progenitors? Shouldn’t you be wearing such a nameplate? Yet, can this be done just by talking? If you want to live up to your faith, you have to move your body. Will you do that? [Yes.] Can I trust you? [Yes.] I very much want to believe you with a pure and loving heart. I hope that you do not disappoint me anymore. If you pledge not to do so, please stand up, and clap your hands. [Applause] Since we’re all standing now, let’s sing “Our Hope Is Unity.” 
[True Mother led the song, while those in the audience held hands.”]
