Today I would like to speak about “God’s providence seen through the development of civilization through history and our responsibility today.”
In the beginning, God had a dream, a parent’s dream that God and human beings would share love and happiness for all eternity in the midst of God's Creation. In light of this, why did the omniscient and omnipotent being not stop Adam and Eve at the Fall? This was because God had given human beings a great blessing, but they did not fulfill their responsibilities. Through the selfish thoughts and actions of the Fall, all humankind was born in Satan’s lineage. However, Heaven could not just give up.
Therefore, God singled out the people of Israel to receive his will in the world and raised them for four thousand years. It was not just one or two months. Why did the long span of four thousand years pass?
Fallen man had to go through indemnity in order to appear in Heaven’s presence. God set up numerous central figures but because at a crucial moment they could not overcome indemnity, they failed. After a long period of four thousand years, God said, I will send him, and sent the messiah.
At that time, the people of Israel still did not have a nation. The satanic world had a Cain-type “nation” called the Roman Empire. God intended that empire to be the path to the world. Heaven tried to embrace the world through the great Roman Empire.
However, the ignorant people of Israel, the Jews, and especially Mary, who gave birth to Jesus, did not fulfill their responsibilities. How could Mary live a married life when Jesus was single? Christianity today has been moving in the wrong direction. We must now reveal the truth and return all things to their correct positions. Jesus told Mary many times that he must get married. However, in the end, Mary could not create an environment for Jesus and could not fulfill her responsibilities. This resulted in her being the cause of Jesus taking the way of the cross.
After that, Heaven’s providential history did not ask anything more of the people of Israel. From that time, Heaven began the providential history of searching for the foundation for the only begotten daughter of God.
The Dongi tribe [Eastern Barbarians], which later developed into the Han clan empire, existed from 800 bc to 400 bc. That was the Dongi tribe. They were great astronomers. When Jesus was born, there is the story of the three wise men. I am confident that they were from the Dongi tribe.
The Han clan was a benevolent people. They were the people Heaven selected as the chosen people. That is why they did not like fighting and why they were pushed out of China all the way to the Korean Peninsula, becoming the Korean people.
It is the time for the truth about history to come out. Just as heaven raised the people of Israel for 4,000 years, they have raised this nation, these people, for the advent of the only begotten daughter of God.
It has not been long since Protestantism came to Korea. At that time, there was a spiritual revival centered in Pyongyang. “Grandmother” Kim Seong-do of the Holy Lord Church set the foundation stage. This church was in the position of deceiving and marrying Satan. They were able to bring Satan, in the form of Kim Seong-do’s husband, under submission. They could set the foundation stage for receiving the Returning Lord.
Then the Heo Ho-bin congregation came. This group set the growth stage, because they prepared everything for the returning Lord. They fulfilled the role of alleviating Jesus’ bitter pain. In the middle of that, at the formation, growth and completion stages centered on Dae-mo nim and with the blessings of heaven, in 1943, I, the only begotten daughter of God, was born.
Just as in the time of Jesus, a person who had no connection to Satan, the only begotten daughter of God, found directly by Heaven, was born. After Korea’s liberation from Japan, democracy and communism existed. Communism earnestly began its activities centered in northern Korea. Eventually, Heo Ho-bin went to prison. I was six years old at the time. Heo Ho-bin’s mother took responsibility over the group and she called me over to tell me I was the “bride of the Lord.”
Communism was then gradually spreading in northern Korea where there was no freedom of religion. However because those in this spiritual group, based in Pyongyang, believed that the Returning Lord would come, they did not even consider heading south.
My uncle had been studying in Japan, but he did not return to his hometown after the liberation. We received news that he had instead joined the Army in the south. My grandmother, Cho Won-mo, my mother, Hong Soon-ae (Dae-mo nim) and I, just three women, traveled south to find my uncle. That was in 1948; two years later the Korean War began…. As it happened, Heaven told True Father, then in southern Korea to go to northern Korea. Heaven had me go south and had Father go north. True Father received his mission from Jesus at the age of 16. In order to begin as the returning Lord, he had to go through indemnity, which is why in the end Father went to prison in the north.
Heaven could not just let everything end in prison. The only begotten daughter of God had already been born. Thus, heaven had to protect Father. That is why Father came south with the help of the UN Forces and how Father was able to complete the word as the only begotten Son of God. That is the responsibility of the only begotten son of God, and he did accomplish that. He also had to find followers. On that foundation, in 1960 he met the only begotten daughter of God and moved forward into the position of a True Parent.
I said earlier that we must reveal the truth behind providential history. The 2,000 years of Christian providential history was the providence to find the only begotten daughter of God. This is because in our Heavenly Parent’s providential work through history, the final component that had to be found was the only begotten daughter of God.
A new stage of providential history is beginning through the only begotten daughter of God. The people of this nation, the birthplace of the Returning Lord, the True Parents, must fulfill their responsibilities in relation to Heaven. The Korean people must know why the Korean people were chosen. This nation is God’s homeland and must become True Parents’ nation. Blessed families are the ones that have the responsibility to pave the way for that foundation, which is why they must fulfill their mission as tribal messiahs and realize national restoration. While I am still on earth, we must absolutely realize Heaven’s will. This nation must surely become True Parents’ nation and become a model for the 7.3 billion people of the world.
The role of the island nations in the history of human civilization is great. True Father blessed Japan with the mission of the Eve nation. Right? Blessings come with responsibility. Only by fulfilling that can you receive the full blessing. You must consider this seriously and bear fruit. We must unite with True Parents and show a united front.
Today, it seems only incidents giving rise to despair are occurring all over the world. There are many walls—religious walls, ethnic and cultural borders.... Also, the world has a “disease” caused by human wrongdoing. Recently many earthquakes, tsunamis, and other natural disasters are causing loss of life. However, all nations—especially nations that consider themselves big—rather than thinking of the whole, think only of what benefits their own nation.
That is why I am moving in the direction of solving all of the problems one by one in stages. In our movement, young people are uniting with True Parents. They are creating an actual environment that we can show to the nation and the world through creating a strong foundation in the Family Federation and cultivating future leaders.
All through his life, Father gathered scholars in order to embrace the world—particularly scientists, intellectuals and famous professors. Father set before them the responsibility and task of bringing about world peace. The people who were responsible for that did not continuously develop and many of those programs ended. It is true that scientists have contributed a lot to human civilization. However, when we look at the larger picture, they also contributed to polluting the Earth through things like the development of nuclear weapons, which have terrifying destructive power. That is why I would like to restore the Earth that God created, this beautiful Earth, to its original state, changing the direction of the mistaken scientific development to the right direction.
The earth not being able to exist would mean humans would not be able to exist either. As True Parents, can we just say, “It’s dangerous; it’s dangerous,” and not do anything? That is why I have many things I must do. Will you help me with all my work?
I receive strength from all of you. While I am still here, I want Heavenly Parent to be able to say, “Thank you for becoming one with True Mother and realizing my dream.” We cannot delay dealing with this urgent reality any further. You must feel the urgency of what we are facing. In the providence, there is no postponing these matters until tomorrow. We must succeed today. Do you understand? I pray that you can all become proud filial sons or daughters and loyal subjects, Cheon Il Guk soldiers that will liberate Heavenly Parent’s and True Parents’ desperate hearts. Aju.
