Elder Korean Members’ Special Workshop to Build a Heavenly, Unified Korea Hosted
by True Parents, True Mother's Closing Ceremony Speech
October 31, 2018 - Cheongpyeong Heaven and Earth Training Center
Yesterday, somebody brought me some persimmons [gam]. That lovely person is probably here somewhere. After seeing those persimmons, I thought Ah! I should share them with all of you today.
What does the word, “gam,” sound similar to? It sounds like gam...sahamnida. [Thank you.] I have a heart full of gratitude toward you. I felt, They sent me such a great gift, one that represents their thankful heart toward me! That's why I wanted to deliver these to you.
How long has it been since Father began the providence? Fifty-six years? Has it been fifty-seven years? If during that time we had created a better foundation, the Messiah would have manifested on a national foundation transcending tribes and races. To this day, Christians still call themselves “brides of Christ.” Unfortunately, they do not understand the concept or the meaning of this term, “bride.” Although they began the work of rebirth through the Holy Spirit, they have been developing a system for centuries centered on human beings; due to this, they have repeated many failures. In short, they did not know God. They could not understand who God was. Moreover, they could not even comprehend who Jesus was or what his original nature was. The purpose of creation that God established absolutely must be fulfilled. This is because God is a being who cannot fail.
Why then did so many years pass? The man and woman created at that time were unable to fulfill their responsibility. It was their responsibility! Until Jesus was able to appear, several indemnity conditions needed to be established over those four thousand biblical years. Even though Jesus was born through a woman of fallen lineage, he did not have any connection to that lineage, so Satan was not able to interfere with him. Thus, God could proclaim, This is my son, my only begotten son!
After Jesus passed away, he said he would return, so the position of the only begotten son remained open. What, then, should Christianity have prepared? They should have found the only begotten daughter. In addition, they had to create the right foundation for her to be born. Humanity does not decide which nation would be chosen as the central one for that task. Heaven does. God does. The chosen people are the Korean people. However, with blessings come responsibilities. When this country divided into North and South after its liberation, it was on its way to becoming Communist. If the US military or the Allied Forces had not intervened, this country would have become Communist. The people of goodwill who stood at the crossroads between democracy and communism clung to God. At that exact moment, the returning Lord had to appear. Those people waited ardently and earnestly. Unfortunately, Christians who could not understand the providence are still in the dark even today. There is no alternative to educating them. Show them and educate them. In particular, you should do this as the elder members and pastors. You are the elder members whom True Parents are proud of. Isn't this true? Among you, there are those who lived during our civil war and directly experienced this country's suffering. I heard there are 7.5 million people who are over 65 years old in South Korea. We need to educate those senior citizens. For over 5,000 years, our country was able to overcome various upheavals, because God, the Creator God, blessed this nation. That blessing is because God was able to prepare the chosen people to give birth to the Parents who are able to fulfill His will and the purpose of creation. “Chosen people” is the key phrase here. We must speak strongly about God’s will to the people of this nation. Ideologies will not reunify the Korean peninsula; neither will politics. Before speaking about head-wing ideology, Koreans must recognize True Parents. The True Parents are our center. True Parents are the people whom this peninsula should attend as the center. Heaven has prepared and blessed the people. When we discuss this with others, they will probably wonder why True Parents are this important. We have to look back into history. As a part of fallen humanity, people are not in a position to go freely before God. It is only possible if they are born again through True Parents. We cannot state that a world that cannot move freely before God is the kingdom of heaven on earth. Likewise, we cannot call this world a peaceful world. It is a logical conclusion. This is how to resolve the confusion and educate people. It is your time to shine and educate from the forefront of this country by telling the children, young people, politicians and other community leaders, It is time for you to stand and rise!
You should properly educate them. Will you do this? You here are blessed families. Hence, you probably wish for those in your 2nd and 3rd generations to surpass you in absolute faith, absolute love, and absolute obedience as they complete their responsibilities. Am I right? Then, today before Heavenly Parent, True Parents… me, you must swear to complete all of your responsibilities without fail by restoring this providential nation, which is God's dream and humanity's ultimate desire. This is your responsibility. It is in your hands. Through your efforts, you will certainly be able to offer back to heaven God's homeland, True Parents' homeland, and the homeland of the citizens of Cheon Il Guk.
