Hyo Jeong Global Peace Foundation Scholarship Award Ceremony, True Parents' Message
February 24, 2018, Cheongshim International Youth Center
Did you miss me a lot? I just came from participating in the 24th ICUS. For 22 years ICUS led with the theme of Absolute Values and last year after 17 years we revived ICUS.
Up until now, humanity strived to live good lives in accordance with their original natures, yet the environment could not keep up with them, and because they did not stand at the center their selfishness and their individual greed took the forefront and that phenomenon made today as it is. Especially when we look at the history of human civilization, it is true that scientific developments have provided us, in the present, with a bountiful and comfortable life. Yet, what I am saying here today is that all humankind, especially scientists must know God. We must know the essence of God, the Creator, who is the owner of the Universe, and we must know what his dream was. It is the truth that humankind has emerged incorrectly until now.
Originally when God created Heaven, Earth, and all things he created according to his form. The center of birth and the creation of life, more so than the father, is the mother. Isn't that so? God our Creator! Father and Mother together created all things in the cosmos. That shape can be seen as plus and minus in the mineral kingdom, stamen and pistil in the plant kingdom, male and female in the animal kingdom, and God created a man and a woman that would become the first ancestors of humankind. The Bible refers to them as Adam and Eve. However, God hoped to see humanity develop into perfection through the growth-period. Because he wished that Adam and Eve must go forward completely united with God. Yet during this time, they developed greed. They thought "I too can become like God" they developed greed for things before the correct time. This is how they became fallen humankind who could not be together with God.
Heaven cannot change God's principles of creation. God is omniscient and omnipotent. The purpose God set undoubtedly has to be realized. Yet the difficult thing is that God absolutely needs humankind's cooperation. God, the Absolute Creator, had to begin the providence of salvation. Indemnity follows the providence of salvation, Indemnity has to be paid from the individual, family, tribe, and national level to become free. We can see this through the Bible and through Heaven's providence of restoration. Heaven waited as the bitter history of the providence of restoration through indemnity unfolded. After the long-period of four thousand years, God chose the nation through which he could send the Savior who he can call "My Son". How difficult must it have been that it took four thousand years to shed the indemnity? However, what happened? The people around Jesus did not know the Jesus' purpose or his essence. They thought of him as a person, as an individual. The person who could save humankind and become the first good ancestor of humankind, they sent that person to the cross.
The resurrection of Christianity began through the Pentecost of the Holy Spirit. As Jesus died on the cross he said: "I will return". He said he would come back and hold the marriage supper of the lamb. The marriage supper of the lamb! The goal of Christianity and Heaven's providence is the only daughter of God that could not be found and attended two thousand years ago. Yet, Christians today do not know this. There are many religions around the world. However, they too do not know what the goal or the final destination is. Yesterday at the ICUS, I told them they must not stop at just knowing God they must conduct their research from the position of attendance to God. Until now, scientific development has been partial to only one direction. Do you know what the world is afraid of today? It is nuclear power which has an enormous destructive power. I know that even the nuclear reactors which help us in our everyday lives have been causing enormous damage due to its nuclear waste. If this science is only developed from one direction, and that is the direction of destruction, then humankind and the earth has no future. Therefore, I am saying that you must know God and through receiving inspiration and wisdom from God, you must protect this environment which is heading towards its final days with no hope for humankind. Do you understand what I am saying?
Heaven gave us poison. There are poisonous snakes and there are plants with poison. Yet Heaven also gave us substances which can counteract the poison. What this means is that God's principles of creation from when he created the universe, can be perpetuated eternally. It can exist forever! The world of all created things, which did not fall, circulates well according to the principles of creation. However, it is true that this beautiful world, this nature, is being destroyed through human ignorance. When I saw the news today, it said that the concentration of fine dust is serious today. Fine dust! Especially Korea, due to the yellow dust and the fine dust which comes from Korea has a higher concentration. It is not enough for just one country to do well. There must cooperate to move in a direction to overcome these problems.
Therefore, not long ago, I warned China in this way. "You are spending a great amount of money on the military. With that money your nation can turn the Gobi desert into beautiful land, even if you invest one-third of that it is possible" This was what I said. They only need to make effort but they do not think of the future. The phenomenon of only looking right in front of them is occurring in all government of all nations and is because of the greed to put their own nation's benefit first. Thus because I know God I told the scientists, "I am the Mother of the Universe!". Therefore I cannot tolerate these phenomena. I told them no matter what I have to make this right. I am saying in order to do this I hope for all of your cooperation. Did I do well?
Also, I spoke to scientists in our second-generation, I saw that they have grown beautifully. They are the hope of our future. I ask that you dream big, so that the world God originally created, a healthy planet with a bright future for humankind, a world of freedom, equality, peace, and happiness, and a world of one human family centered on God, can begin. I ask that you grow beautifully and healthily so that through your studies and your efforts you will develop more brilliant ideas and become more brilliant than those scientists, and through your pure selves, become people who can give hope to this world today.
