Seek Your Original Mind and the Truth
Satan likes to make evil seem innocent or "cute". Satanic symbols and vibrations have real power and they affect us unknowingly. We have to protect our children and ourselves from being influenced by this evil culture, which always revolves around the misuse and abuse of sex.

1The vision of Obadiah.
This is what the Sovereign Lord says about Edom—
We have heard a message from the Lord:
An envoy was sent to the nations to say,
“Rise, let us go against her for battle”—
2“See, I will make you small among the nations;
you will be utterly despised.
3The pride of your heart has deceived you,
you who live in the clefts of the rocksa
and make your home on the heights,
you who say to yourself,
‘Who can bring me down to the ground?’
4Though you soar like the eagle
and make your nest among the stars,
from there I will bring you down,”
Richard: This prophecy is a description of the parrallel between the fate of Edom and all nations. This can be seen as analogous to the current situation between the corrupt Family Federation for World Peace and Unification and the World Peace and Unification Sanctuary. Ultimately, God's justice will prevail, and those who helped in the fraudulent overthrow of the appointed successor will taste the bitter cup of God's chastisement.
1“In those days and at that time,
when I restore the fortunes of Judah and Jerusalem,
2I will gather all nations
and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat.a
There I will put them on trial
for what they did to my inheritance, my people Israel,
because they scattered my people among the nations
and divided up my land.
3They cast lots for my people
and traded boys for prostitutes;
they sold girls for wine to drink.
Richard: God is prophesying the coming day of judgement. All will be held accountable for their actions.
Let the Sleeping World Awaken
Rev. Sun Myung Moon
May 19, 1957
Today, I plan to speak briefly on the topic, "Let the Sleeping World Awaken." Since God is behind the dispensation, this earth will one day greet the new morning of bright future. There, we human beings will sing glory with the whole world of creation. The hope of God and human beings is that in this way human beings can join all things on earth to return glory and joy to Father. Consequently, while passing through the long history until today, human beings have yearned for the day when all humanity can rejoice centering on one ideal standard and become together intoxicated in love. Even when they did not know when that day might be, for sure, they longed for that day.
Then, why have humans lapsed into this realm of death? It is because human beings fell.
You know very well, through the Divine Principle, that there is not even one person, among the fallen people, who can realize on earth the ideals of creation that God and human beings can enjoy together, and offer joy and recitation of delight to God. What this signifies is that, until now, the new morning of the bright future, centering on God, has not come before all humanity yet. This also reveals that the time has come when human beings should become open to new ideology and doctrine.
Therefore, God and human beings have the responsibility to again awaken this world, which is fast asleep in the state of not having seen the bright light of the new morning until today. You must be able to feel this.
Although we live in this sleeping world, we have the ears that can hear the news of the new age, eyes that can see it and senses that can feel it. If you do not have these ears, eyes and senses, you cannot awaken this sleeping world. Or, rather than awakening this sleeping world, you cannot even awaken yourselves.
Now, through philosophy, religion and historical perspective, we must hear the new news, realize the new reality, and furthermore hear the voice of God, which has been appealing to human beings during the 6,000 years of the dispensation, and sees the Sung Sang of God which is manifesting itself through the sacred spirit. Otherwise, we will not be able to make even the slightest relationship with the new news of new age.
Today many people are predicting that the last days are near, and many religions, especially Christianity, are saying that the day of judgment is near. Then, what must we seek at such times? First, we must realize that we have to wake up from sleep; to do that, we must receive some stimulation. Then, from where does that stimulation come? It comes from the new news that you can hear, see and feel in your living environment. If you cannot establish this, then you will not be able to cast aside all the bitter grief that has been accumulating through the long 6,000-year course. If you contemplate on this fact today, then with new ears, eyes and hearts, you will understand in what form the universal dispensation will emerges. Now is the time when we must develop these new eyes, ears and intelligence. Now is the time near the last days, the time when the day of judgment has arrived, so if there is a God, then He will not want to leave this land undisturbed as the world of death, or world asleep for eternity. He will surely awaken this world and restore it to the original world of creation.
I have just said that now is the last days; how can we know that now is the last days? Looking at how false things that wear the masks of new things are emerging in large number, we can know that now is the last days. Even looking at history, in the last days, before the appearance of true things centering on Heaven, false things came first always.
As you can see, we are living in the era of confusion. On our own, we cannot distinguish from all the things that we see, hear and come across which are true and which are false. Then, on what standard, can we distinguish the true from the false? That standard is neither knowledge nor learning. It is each person's original mind. In this moment when the last days are near, we cannot know when and who will invade us and trample upon our life and eternal hope. The invasion might come through our knowledge and some worldly conditions. Therefore, we must not put too much emphasis on the knowledge that we have or in the worldly conditions.
All these things cannot be the highest standard for distinction between good and evil, and they cannot determine the ultimate goodness. If they can determine the ultimate goodness, then they would have already granted us the grace to hear the voice of God and go forward toward the new hope. Moreover, they would have become manifested as the stimulating things that we can feel anew and experience substantially. However, these things have not been able to introduce us to the eternal ideals of God until now. When we look at this, we can understand that knowledge or learning is not some ideal thing that can determine goodness.
Today, then, when we have come to the doorsteps of the last days, what must we seek to wake up completely? We must seek our original mind and seek the new truth that can uniformly explain the world of original substance and the phenomenon world through that mind.
Our countless ancestors, the central figures of the dispensation, have been exerting themselves until today while passing through the long course of history to seek this mind and truth; until now, they have failed to find the true truth of the mind that can represent Heaven. Not only that, they could not establish reciprocally the standard that can relate to the mind, is in harmony with it, and produce joy as the eternal ideal element. So, on earth, the walls of darkness are blocking the way until now. You must understand this.
