True Parents' Message at a Special Thanksgiving Banquet to Celebrate True Parents' Victorious Rallies in Nagoya and Osaka on November  23, at Cheon Jeong Gung

 

Today is Thanksgiving Day in America! Thanksgiving began with the Puritans. It was a day to prepare food from that year's harvest, catch a turkey and give thanks to Heaven with your family. It was also a time of sharing and preparing for the next year, to start the new year with hope. We must become people who can realize Heavenly Parent's dream and humankind's wish through True Parents. We must become filial sons, filial daughters and loyal patriots in front of Heaven. However, the providence of restoration through indemnity, the providence of salvation, has been a very difficult and painful providence. Heaven endured and waited impatiently for a long period, six thousand years, which was a period when—in order to realize Heavenly Parent's wish and embrace humankind as true children—we could not take even one step forward without paying indemnity. Humankind missed the opportunity for the most precious and joyful moment; they are people adrift with no sail or compass. What is the wish of people who are adrift? To reach land. The wish of fallen humankind is to meet the true owner, but they did not know where they were. They were confused. The religions for humankind that Heaven let thrive began by saying, Let's live good lives. In order to do that, they had to be patient in such a way and work hard in such a way. What, though, was the result? What was the destination? They did not have an answer. Though this was not clear, Christianity explained that the relationship between the Creator God and people was a parent–child relationship. We must not be satisfied with only that.

 

Recently, I have said many times that I will reveal the truths of the providence. Heaven worked hard and created a foundation. God had to find his only son and his only daughter. After four thousand years, Heaven chose the people of Israel, who found the only son of God, Jesus Christ. The environment at that time drove him to the cross before he could fulfill his responsibilities! The central figures of that time! You know well that this led to indemnity having to be paid.

 

The Unification Church, HSA-UWC, had been unable to lay a foundation, so we could not say anything and waited. We could not reveal the word, which we had to reveal. However, through these indemnity conditions that True Parents set, blessed families emerged and it is true that we have spread to the world! You must think about this. True Parents' advent! It should have begun by the nation welcoming it. It should have begun with people cheering, Joy! True Parents have come! Hallelujah! But how did it begin? Do you think you fulfilled your responsibilities as people who knew Heavenly Parent's, True Parents', and humankind's wish on the path True Father trod? When he came, you did not attend him in glory and when he went, you could not do so either. Through me, the only daughter of God… Through me, you have the opportunity to accomplish the responsibilities you could not fulfill. That opportunity is now. As I ended the Osaka rally, I spoke about "Shin [Heavenly] Osaka". Shin Osaka! A Japan that attends God! Then, what must Korea, which we call "God's homeland," do? The beginning point is the divine spirit. The spirit, the truth, the word! The condition of all uniting with one heart moving toward one goal... If you are blessed families and true children, you must be filial to your parents. What is that filial piety? What is Heavenly Parent’s wish? You must lead the way in revealing everything and informing everyone by saying “This is how it is done." The time has come but we cannot go forward with the same customs as in the past, the same thinking as in the past. We must change. The family that Adam and Eve could not realize six thousand years ago! We must fulfill our responsibilities as blessed families who have emerged through the True Parents after six thousand years. We must unite centered on True Mother. We must go forward under a united system. Especially Korea, Japan and the United States, do you understand? You must become models.
