True Parents' Message

November 16, 2017

 


Beloved Global Citizens of Nagoya, I love you! Leaders of various fields, ambassadors for peace, members of the Family Federation, blessed families, ladies, and gentlemen! Today we have gathered here to become the key players of this new age. When we look around the world today, we do not have hope for the future. There are many religions but they were unable to give us a conclusion about the next life nor the future. Yet, Christianity alone said that the relationship between God, our Creator, and human beings was a parent–child relationship. However, they did not know the true meaning of this. The original owner of the universe, God, the Creator, created all things in the heavens and on earth and created the man and woman who would become humankind’s first ancestors. Through the growth period, they should have developed absolute faith, absolute love, and absolute obedience to God. God would have then said, Now you are all grown. I will bless you!

That was the moment God longed for, when he would have become humankind’s parent. Unfortunately, however, before the proper time [Adam and Eve] began to focus on themselves in greed. This was how we came to have a fallen world, through which humankind could not stand in God's presence. God is omniscient and omnipotent. He is the same in the beginning and the end. He cannot change the principles he put in place at the time of the Creation. Therefore, Heaven had no choice but to go through the painful and sorrowful providence of restoration through indemnity. God chose a nation from among fallen humankind and through the providence of restoration through indemnity restored an individual all the way to the national level. God wished for the time when a man and woman who could become humankind’s victorious parents would appear. After four thousand years, God sent Jesus Christ, God’s only son, whom he could call "My son." Jesus also needed a period of growth. Then Mary, Zachariah's family, figures in Judaism and the Israelites should have accepted Heaven's will and created Jesus' environment. However, they were ignorant. They did not correctly understand the providence. Christians say that humans can be saved because the only son of God, who arrived after four thousand years, died  on the cross soon after coming. Christianity began after Jesus died on the cross. In the beginning, they received much persecution. However, after ad 313, Rome recognized Christianity and it took off quickly. Yet, they did not know Jesus' essence or God and made many mistakes. The communist thought that exists today came from within the Christian realm. There is a limit to what can be done by human thought, ability, and strength alone. As Jesus died on the cross, he said he would return. He said he would come back and hold the marriage supper of the Lamb. The marriage supper of the Lamb! This meant that he would return and become the "true parent" of humankind. Fallen humankind cannot go directly into God's presence. They must go through the condition of being reborn through the returning Messiah, the Savior, the True Parents. Only through that process can they gain the qualification to enter into God's presence. However, what you must know here is that Heaven will not use again the Israelites or central figures who did not fulfill their responsibilities, because they have indemnity remaining. Heaven chose a new people as the chosen people, and raised them as the people who could give birth to God’s only daughter. That is the Han people, the people of Korea! The Han people revered God and had an advanced understanding of astronomy. They had an agricultural society and were a people who loved nature and who loved peace. That was why they kept being pushed further and further until they settled on the Korean Peninsula.

Christianity had not been accepted for long [in Korea], but because it was the time for the Second Advent of the Lord who said he would return, the only daughter of God whom God could call "My daughter" was born after six thousand years. I was born in 1943. Korean was liberated in 1945.

With liberation, Korea divided, north and south. It divided along the lines of democratic thought and communist thought. According to God's principles of creation, God gave people a growing period. I was born in 1943, and I, too, needed a growing period. Under the circumstances of the country having divided into North Korea and South Korea, I could not survive under the communist regime. Therefore, Heaven guided me to go south. The democratic south was still unstable. Then, in 1950, the Korean War broke out. South Korea was unprotected, but like a miracle, the UN Forces mobilized to protect South Korea. How anxious and worried must God have been! God had to protect me until I could fulfill my responsibility as a True Parent and fulfill Heaven's will. This was Heaven's profound and amazing providence. This is "the truth of history from the viewpoint of Heaven's providence" that you must know! Many difficult things have occurred between Korea and Japan in the past, due to our ancestors. However, we must reveal the truth about history. Only through that can a new era and new history begin. Through True Parents’ Holy Wedding, the door to the blessing allowing humankind to go directly into God's presence opened. Since 1960, hundreds of millions of couples have formed blessed families around the world. Heavenly Parent's wish and humankind’s wish is to form one human family attending their parents. Blessed families, who know the providence, who have the qualifications and act accordingly, we need your devotion and effort so blessed families who are in the position of parents can open the path for those in the second and third generations— who will become leaders in the future—to realize the dream.

The world needs us. A new era was born in the fifth year of Cheon Il Guk. However, in order to become the lamp of hope for humankind—still wandering in the darkness unable to see ahead—we need you to do this, the tribal messiahs’ mission. It is for you to become messiahs and for you to become saviors. Through whom? Through True Parents. Do you understand? Will you do that? When I hear "Nagoya" I feel happy. Many of the early Unification Church, Family Federation, leaders came from here. I pray that you members of Nagoya can bear the beautiful fruit of the beginning and the end, the Alpha and the Omega. Through True Parents, a new providence is progressing. Korea, True Parents' homeland, and Japan, which was selected as the Eve nation through True Parents, have united and crossed Asia to open the Pacific Realm Civilization Era. Heaven chose America as the eldest son nation, which represents the world. Therefore, from the Pacific Civilization realm the revolution of filial heart is spreading to the world, opening a new age. I hope you embrace the world’s people and educate them through the true message of truth and become the lamp for the 7.4 billion people of the world. I hope that you all lead the way in opening the era where humankind's wish, Heavenly Parent's dream, and True Parents' dream of one human family under God can be realized. Two thousand years ago, the providence through the Israelites ended in failure. However, after six thousand years, through God’s only daughter, at this time when the True Parents have manifested, I pray that Korea, Japan, and America—these three nations who embrace the 7.4 billion people of the world—can know that they can realize the kingdom of heaven on earth, which Heaven and humankind wished for, through putting into action the true family movement that puts into practice the true love of living for the sake of others. At the center, Japan must fulfill its responsibility as the Eve nation, the mother Nation. Through that, you can indemnify the wrongdoings of your ancestors. I want to make for you a Japan with no indemnity in the future, a nation that can boast of true peace. Only through this path, through these activities, can Japan have a future and furthermore can Asia and the world have a future. The dream of "One human family under God!" We can realize the peaceful kingdom of heaven on earth!
