Universal Peace Federation Inauguration-Washington DC Sept 23, 2005
God's Ideal Family, the Model for World Peace
Washington. It sounds like Washing Stone. Well, stone represents Christ. So in the Christian community, there are so many churches, but I don’t see so many churches like white marble; clean. I wish that Washington would mean, Washing Stone, or wash the stone. That way we can have unification to one color, uni-color. America will become the leading country of the world. For that mission God brought me to this nation, particularly Washington, DC. Then I have spent 34 years in this capital city, Washington, DC. I have given the vision and teachings from God to the people of America the last 34 years. There has been lots of opposition and persecution. Yet I have been consistently giving the truth from God to build peace, and speaking of the Korean War, it is not an ordinary war in human history, but it was a holy war. That’s why God worked behind the scenes to mobilize the 16 United Nations member nations. And they came to Korea in 1950 and they tried to reunify the entire peninsula. But in the middle of their mission, they dropped out of the scene. When it comes to God’s Providence, it is the Providence of restoration. The United Nations sent its forces to Korea to reunify the Korean peninsula, but they withdrew in the middle. So America, in a way is responsible to complete that mission. So Washington, Wash the Stone is what God would like, the white marble color, wash the stone. I wish Washington would be in such a position. For that kind of purpose, I have been putting my neck on the line and fighting against evil. I like this auditorium, too. Have I been here before? How many times have I spoken here? Several times already. I am not familiar with this place. Why? Not the place, but the people sitting in front of me. Well, let me test myself how capable I am to bring all of you closer to me. In a prayerful mind I am taking this podium, so first of all, I would like to thank God. So all of you, would you like to thank God with a round of applause? You saw my face clearly. As an Oriental person, so I look handsome or ugly? If you feel ugly, show your hands. I may give you an award. The contents of the message I am delivering today is not an easy one. Some of you may become startled because of the contents, but be patient. There are many scholars and PhD’s who are leading the world, but you have to be really alert and open your hearts to understand the message tonight. The title is God’s Ideal Family is the Model for World Peace. God’s Ideal Family is the Model for World Peace. This is what America needs most. Speaking of family, we are talking about husbands and wives and children. The problems emerge out of them. How can we build the ideal family? By your national force?; the force of your knowledge? Your position? No they cannot create an ideal family. You tried, in the past many people tried, but it didn’t work. Where can we find a model for world peace? We have to secure God’s ideal family. Then we can find a model for world peace. So I have been speaking every day for a few hours, so my voice is a little bit hoarse tonight. Even yesterday, 2 hours 40 minutes. If I read the written text straight, it will take only 30 minutes. Actually, last night, they came for a banquet, they were sitting at a banquet table without eating, but because I didn’t finish until 10 o’clock they probably couldn’t eat dinner because I spoke for 2 hours 40 minutes. So, if you pay attention to me, I will speak quietly to save my voice because I have to cover 100 cities around the world. You are my honored guests, so I am begging you to be quiet and pay attention with a joyful heart. Would you like to do that? Amen. Anybody who wants to drink, show your hand. Well, the poor water so I have to drink it. The grandfather drinks a glass of water and in his family he is the king, he is the boss. That is the status of a grandfather at home; everybody has to obey to the grandfather. Well, I don’t mean that you have to be that way but I want you to be quiet and pay attention to what I am going to deliver. Again, the title is God’s Ideal Family. The language of Korean is a very mysterious language. The Korean language is good enough that if you master the Korean language you can pronounce 4.9 million different sounds. So God must have blessed the language Korean. In English, if I say you, anybody can be you. But in Korean, there are many different levels. When you call your mother, your son; when you call your King, your grandfather; they are all different types of “you’s”, depending on the level of respect you have to show.
Well, I am pushing 90, strong now, but I can pronounce many different languages, still, if I want to. But I will speak in Korean.
My greeting, Good evening.
I address you as leaders from around the globe who do not hesitate to make extraordinary efforts for the realization of world peace. I would like to express my deepest gratitude for your being present here tonight in spite of your very busy schedules. This is the end of my greeting. Those who sit all the way in the back, can you hear me? Can you hear me? Can you hear me well? Can you hear me well? Do you prefer the front row, or in the back? So anyway, pay attention.
Ladies and gentlemen, as we begin the 21st century, we find ourselves at a truly historic turning point. We are at a point of decision. Can everlasting world peace take root, or are we doomed to repeat the 20th century's dark and oppressive history of war and conflict?
We cannot just pass. We have to make a decision. The 20th century was a period of ceaseless struggle, including wars for colonial dominion, the First and Second World Wars, the Korean War, and the Cold War. The cold war actually started with the Korean War. Living through this era, I dedicated my life entirely to the accomplishment of God's ideal of peace. My 34 years of life in America were dedicated for this peace, God’s ideal of peace. I am telling you the truth. I have always prayed sincerely that the United Nations, founded after the Second World War, would be an institution of peace, and that it would uphold God's will for the realization of eternal world peace.
The United Nations has made important contributions for peace. Nevertheless, at its 60th anniversary there is a broad consensus, both inside and outside the organization, that the U.N. has yet to discover the way to fulfill its founding purposes. Isn’t it true? If you do not agree, I do not have to continue.
The number of member states approaches 200, but the offices of these states do little more than represent and even insist on their own interests. They seem inherently unable to resolve conflicts and achieve peace.
For these reasons, I declare today before all humanity the founding of a new international organization, the Universal Peace Federation. Its mission is to renew the existing United Nations and provide a new level of leadership as an "Abel-type" United Nations, that is, a United Nations whose efforts for peace are offered to Heaven, investing itself ceaselessly in living for the sake of others. I was told that there would be a huge demonstration launched in Washington, DC, maybe 100,000 people. The demonstration should be for a good purpose. There shouldn’t be a demonstration against anything. It should be a big rally to promote something for God and peace. Well, I may criticize American policy here in my speech, but we have to open our hearts as to what that means. Well, the United Nations, America shouldn’t drop out of their mission in the middle. We don’t want to see any more boat people out of the Viet Nam war. Think about the communistic world and the free world. What about the Middle East. They are still fighting. The Islamic community and Jewish community, they are still fighting. All different kinds of conflicts and wars around the world; how can we solve these problems? In the past, the United Nations and America led the world. But, in God’s eyes, it didn’t work. It failed. Over 6000 years of history in God’s eyes has been there to build world peace. Korean history goes that far, too. Also, I don’t know if you know, but Mongolian birthmark people are over 70% of humanity. Why were they chased out of the place and became Indians and American Indians and Eskimos, and so forth? Well, I don’t want to take too much time for that. The United Nations didn’t fulfill its mission. In the Korean war they were sent to Korea. It was because the Korean War was a holy war. Repeat after me: “Holy War”. They didn’t know God’s Will, the purpose behind this Holy War. Well, America lost over 50,000 young people in that war. God didn’t bring American soldiers there for nothing. God wanted to use America as the champion of the world, leading the United Nations Forces in that Holy War. If America had done that, completed the mission during the Korean War to reunify the entire Korean peninsula the world history would have been totally absolutely different by now. At the age of 24 I created the Unification Movement Church. What I did teach you now was there at the age of 24. I had all in my heart. I could have educated all American leaders at that time. Then I didn’t have to come through this course of wilderness all these years. In Korea, there were key major role players like president Sung Man Lee, the first president and his wife and another person, the president of Eu Wha Women’s University at that time. They were the key people who were supposed to be united and work with me to build a Christian and God-centered nation in Korea and also America. But they failed, so Christianity has been suffering up to this point. Religions, I am telling you boldly this truth as a grandfather. In order to revive America, I devoted the last 34 years in America. Why do you think I created the Washington Times; what about UPI, to save America, to revive the nation of America. You may say, “oh, Rev. Moon is speaking again on the stage”, but pay attention. I am on my way back, going back to my hometown. An 87 year old man. How can one cover 100 cities one city a day? In the middle of this speaking tour, I may fall and die. How many people will like to see that? Americans who lived here once in America, and are now in the Spirit World are eagerly praying and hoping that America will be revived in this truth.
America should be enlightened again. What about you, have you done that, can you do it? You have to know the truth. Not that I do not understand America. I know America. Who has vision for the future of the world and the future of America? I am the one. That’s why I am giving you this vision.
I again repeat, They seem inherently unable to resolve conflicts and achieve peace. Where is my wife. She has been begging me today, please stick with the written speech. Well, my normal time is 2 hours 40 minutes, but if I finish this in 30 minutes, some people may feel sorry. I don’t want to hear that kind of blame, so I will do my best. First I will drink some water and put more effort into it. I may be able to read the entire text in English, too, but then some Koreans will blame me. So in order to promote the language of Korean, I am reading it in Korean. There are Jews and Christians, and Muslims, but you are boasting that you are being united together, but don’t boast about yourself, that is a natural phenomenon. Well, it is natural for any old grandpa standing before his family members and boasting himself and saying this and that. Is anybody here over 88 years old? Show your hand. I don’t see anybody. That means even if I say some harsh words, you shouldn’t criticize me, I am the oldest one here. Again,
I declare today before all humanity the founding of a new international organization, the Universal Peace Federation. Its mission is to renew the existing United Nations and provide a new level of leadership as an "Abel-type" United Nations. Abel means in Christianity, Abel-type means the people who offer and help in a more positive way. So this new organization’s name will be the Universal Peace Federation. I have empty hands. But many people are afraid of me, America, Russia, Japan and the Korean government are all afraid of me. Why, because I have the thought, the God Centered Ideology which everybody has to obey. That’s why. Again, that’s why I declare today before all humanity. We are talking about not just 6 billion people, 100’s of billions of people, including the people in the Spirit World. The name of the international organization is UPF, which is the Universal Peace Federation. Well, I may replace the word Federation with Happiness. So Universal Peace and Happiness. So internally, think that way. What about a round of applause for the Universal Peace Federation? Nobody can object to this. Nobody can deny this. Because God guarantees this, Rev. Moon guarantees this, and the Unification Church guarantees this, and UPF does, too. So it will become a more powerful organization than the nations, such as America, Japan, or whatsoever. God sent Rev. Moon to America, and the last 34 years I have been opposed and persecuted and ridiculed, but I did not die, I am still prospering. Since World War II, I have been working for God, solely for God. As a young man, I never lost the young spirit and have been spreading the word of God, just like tonight in front of you. So, to me, this evening is the last night that I can deliver God’s message to you. That is my determination and my spirit tonight. I don’t want to see God feel sad. I always want to see joy and happiness among you. So it is decided, the new international organization is the Universal Peace Federation.
To commemorate this day in its fullness, I am declaring a message from God to humanity in this age. God told me to do so. America, you are in a very difficult situation now. The time is not easy. I am not a business man here standing in front of you. We must do it. That’s why I am telling you this. It is entitled, "God's Ideal Family the Model for World Peace." These are very precious words. Again, pay attention. Just like “Wash the stone”, Washingtonians, you must wash your stained minds and hearts and find your original mind, and through your original mind receive this message.
God's Ideal Family
Respected world leaders, what do you think is God's ultimate purpose for creating human beings? Simply put, it is to experience joy through relating with ideal families filled with true love. God never had his own true family because of the Fall of Man. God never had an opportunity to embrace His own grandchildren. He could not enjoy true family because his own children, Adam and Eve committed the human fall and were chased out of the original Garden of Eden. Can anybody deny this? This world is a fallen world. What does an ideal family look like? First, each person in the family is an owner of true love. That should be the case. Just like God. When God first created human beings, He made Adam representing all men, and Eve representing all women, with the intention that they become owners of true love. In that world, do you think they would even have a concept of divorce, homosexuality, or free sex. No. They are even less than dogs, animals. The quickest way for them to cultivate a character of true love was to secure a parent-child relationship with God, whereby they could live in attendance to God as their Father. That was the purpose. What about your family? Is your family centered on God like this? So we have to repent. They were to have followed the path of living as one family with God. Do you attend God in your family all the time? What about your mind and body? Are they in conflict sometimes, or all the time absolutely united as one? United, or conflict? What is it, conflict or united? No conflict? It’s easy to say there is no conflict, but if you say that, you are a liar. Am I right? Why did you come here tonight? You should have slept in your home. That’s why you are being insulted now. If somebody is sick, maybe he needs acupuncture or injection. That’s why. I am leaving America, so what couldn’t I say? I know you are all sick, so I have to give the bitter medicine to you. Because I want to see you being revived and surviving. So pay attention to what I am saying and it will become a good medicine for your spiritual life. Oh, a round of applause? (applause). Oh, God and your good ancestors are clapping too, with you. That means I wish I give blessing upon you. You don’t know who can give you blessing. I repeat They were to have followed the path of living as one family with God.
I invite you to enter into a mystical state and prayerfully ask God, "What is the center of the universe?" I did it many times, too. That’s what Rev. Moon did, that’s the way I got all the answers. Just like those who are willing to give up their life will gain it, and those who are seeking the life will die. That was the principle I went with. I put my life on the line and challenged God to give me the answer. I am sure that the answer you hear will be "the parent-child relationship." If you cannot pray in such a deep way, then you don’t call yourself a Christian leader. What about this Buddhist Monk, are you Korean? Nothing is more important or more precious than the relationship between parent and child. What else could be more precious to God, to humanity, in the past, in the present, in the future? This is the most important and the most precious relationship. This is because it defines the fundamental relationship between the Creator God and human beings.
Then, what defines the parent-child relationship? Three things define this relationship: love, life and lineage. We are talking about true love, true life and true lineage.
Without our parents' love as a precondition, none of us would be alive today. Do you have your life? You don’t create your own life, you receive life from your parents’ love. God created human beings out of His absolute love, to be His partners in love. This relationship forms an axis of love, linking God the Father with human beings as His sons and daughters. This axis of love is the very important one. Because of the Fall of Man this vertical axis of love did not exist there, in place.
Is there anything higher or more precious than to be a son or daughter of God? If anything were higher, then surely human desire would aspire to attain it. Even if until they die, they would aspire to attain that position. But there is nothing higher. Do you think that when the omniscient and almighty God created Adam and Eve, He secretly reserved the highest position for Himself and made Adam and Eve to be only second best? Think of it. It is a serious challenge. You may be hearing this for the first time in your life, but this is very serious. Maybe you have to feel through your bone marrow. You don’t know how serious I was to find this truth. We cannot imagine that God would do that to His children, to His partners who share absolute love with Him. As our eternal True Parent, God invested Himself 100 percent into the creation of human beings and endowed us with the right to have equal status with Him, to participate in His work as equals, to live with Him, and to inherit from Him. That means God bequeathed all of His attributes to his children, human beings. Love, life, lineage, and even over 500 different attributes. Among those, the most important attribute is absolute love. Repeat after me, “absolute love” (absolute love). What is next. I am talking about unique love. Repeat after me, “unique love” (unique love). Unchanging love (unchanging love). And then, everlasting, eternal love. That is God’s principle. That’s the way we can become the character of true love. Do you understand? [In English] (True love… That is only one true love, absolute true love, unique true love, unchanging love…) Have you thought of such love? Have you though of unique love, unchanging love? Have you though of it? Eternal love? Absolute love. Have you thought of it? I don’t know, those people who even can’t think of it, whether they are human beings or animals. We should be ashamed of it. Well this much is enough. Maybe you should feel you have received enough for tonight. But I will have to continue, because I have shared more in other places. So if I quit here, I do not do my responsibility. Shall we continue (yes, yes). When you say “yes” it sounds like “Jesus Christ” in Korean language. There is “no” and “yes”. If anybody just goes with “no” all the time, you may be doomed to hell. We have to be positive and give an answer. God bestowed everything upon human beings like the function of eyes, role of eyes, and everything.
Though God is the Absolute Being, He cannot be happy alone. Again, God is the absolute being. Is it right? Can God be happy all by Himself? No. Think of your life as a man. If you live all by yourself throughout your entire life, if when you go home nobody is waiting for you, nobody is welcoming you. No wife, no children, no partner. Do you think that you will be happy all throughout your life? Just being alone? No. That is not the universal principle. That is not what God wanted you to become. Well, some may criticize me because I am saying this. But if you want to, you do that. Adjectives such as "good" and "happy" cannot apply to any being that lives in isolation. When God says “good”, He doesn’t say that there is nobody to reciprocate. If He does that all by himself, God is a crazy God. They apply only where there is a robust reciprocal relationship. Imagine a professional singer who finds herself exiled to an uninhabited island. She may sing at the top of her voice, but with no one to listen, will it bring her happiness? No. She cannot feel happy. In the same way, even the self-existent God absolutely needs a reciprocal partner of love in order to experience joy and be happy. If you agree, put your hands together (applause). The evening is getting late. We are getting into night time, but you are still clapping. So God’s blessing will be upon you. It is true. So more clapping for God, more blessing you will receive.
Next, how shall we live to become God's reciprocal partners and return joy to Him? In other words, how shall we live to become children of God, people whom God delights to call "My son," or "My daughter," people who embody a divinity equal to His? How can we become God's partners in completing the work of creation, partners who will inherit the entire creation? I answer: We should emulate the ideal beginning point of God's creative process. In the beginning of creation, God set up the principle of "living for the sake of others." God invested everything not for the sake of Himself, but for the sake of His partner of love. That is the way God set the universal principle. That means, without a partner of love, God will be a sad God, a poor God. God needs a partner of love too. That’s the way God can feel joy and happiness, that’s why. People say that God is a God of love. In modern theology, God is absolute. So we are all creatures God created, so they don’t want to talk about God that way, but even the absolute God, he needs partners of love. Just like you widows and widowers, you will disappear eventually, because you don’t have partners of love. I see one old lady sitting there. She is a widow too, now. Her husband used to be a pilot. But don’t be disappointed. In the spirit world, if you are in hell, I may bring you up. I repeat. In the beginning of creation, God set up the principle of "living for the sake of others." Why do you think man was created. For the sake of woman, wife, wife for the sake of husband. As a man, if he wants to live all by himself, he will disappear within 100 years. By the same token, if everybody goes that way, God would eventually disappear, too. Well, how would you like to say, go one step deeper, then you will be startled, but I don’t want to waste time here; I have to keep a promise with my wife, so I have to quit here and continue. Even when it comes to me, my life, I am a husband, so I need my wife. Because I have my wife, I can be called as husband. So, women, you were born for the sake of your husband. As a Christian minister, you are just saying such harsh words, but I can tell you clearly the truth. You have to live with your husband, you have to expect your husband. Don’t try to live all by yourself. What about your couple, are you all united, Rev. Jesse Edwards? You husbands live for your wife, your wife live for you? You are born for the sake of your spouse. That is the eternal standard you have to aim for. ..God’s love is absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal. So no other excuse. I studied science. I know everything has to be logical, too. God set the practice of true love as the nucleus, and from that point He began to create. Absolute center is not God. Not God Himself. You may feel strange about why I say that. Rev. Moon found this, but that is the truth. So you want to receive that, you want to inherit that. Anybody, who doesn’t want to inherit that, but only those who want to inherit, you give a round of applause. Thank you. Thank you. I will tell you the secret. It is simple. God is the absolute subject, but God cannot perfect himself. God needs His object. The object can perfect God. The husband cannot be perfected all by himself. When his wife stands in the position of object, the husband can be perfected, isn’t it true? Therefore, you need your wife. Again, “yes” is “Jesus Christ” in the Korean language. That’s why, so if the husband is not the owner of love, you need your wife who can make you the owner of love between husband and wife, and visa versa. Therefore, you cannot be separated. Only the husband can make you, your wife, the owner of love. So both owners of true love should live together. So how can they be together? Love. Through kissing, by looking at each other, or nose kissing? What is it? Mouth kissing, or nose kissing? Through what between husband and wife do you become absolutely one? If you don’t know. Well, I feel much joy and interest, out of saying Korean words here and there. I deserve another round of applause anyway, in advance. If you truly understand Korean you can get a lot of joy and happiness out of it.
What do you think God likes most among wife and husband when they are in love? The palace of love, palace of life, palace of lineage. This palace is where God looks at that palace and that is the center of God’s creation among your organs. When husband and wife make love that point of making love is the palace of love, palace of life, and palace of lineage. Absolute. The man’s life, woman’s life, husband’s life, wife’s life come together and become one there. And husband’s love, wife’s love come together there, they sing and dance together, at that point they become united there, what is that palace, where is that? You, ministers, where is that palace? You, Buddhist monk. What kind of Buddhist Monk are you? There are two different types of Buddhist Monks; one kind they never marry, another kind they are allowed to have wives. But if you are the first kind, you have to marry. Well, when I first started preaching about this palace of life, palace of love and palace of lineage, one of my disciples, Rev. Kwak, persecuted me for three years. We are all brothers. Everybody, including all the great founders of the religions, such as Jesus and Mohammad and so forth, everybody loves that palace. That’s why we absolutely need that palace. Palace of live, palace of love, palace of lineage.. You young people sitting in the back, do you feel good? (Yes). All right? (Yes)
Once you grab it, don’t lose it, even if you lose your life. Even if you are drowned in water and floating, don’t lose it, don’t lose that grab. Because in the Spirit World you will be still alive As long as you have that in your hand. What about you ministers, you understand me; right?
Again, that is the palace of life, palace of love and palace of lineage. If you have such a couple in your family, that is God’s ideal family, and that is the model for world peace because God is the center of your family. Do you understand? I have invited world renowned scholars. The last 15 years I have been holding many different conferences but many scholars say “there are no absolute values among scholars belief. It has to be always objective”. But they didn’t understand God’s principle, they couldn’t really . I couldn’t tell them all because the time didn’t come, the time was not ripe, but now the time is ripe, so I am telling you this secret. Repeat after me “Palace of Love”(Palace of love), “Palace of life (Palace of life), “Palace of Lineage” (Palace of Lineage). These three are the only thing. Where is that organ? Where is it in your body? That is your love making organ.
So, following the shape of this love making organ, man’s is convex, woman’s is concave. So these are more precious than your life, which are the palace of life, palace of love, and palace of lineage. It is much more important than your life, because God put his neck on it, too. God himself. God who created the entire universe put his neck on that. God’s neck is still hanging on, or cut off? God doesn’t see his true children. Nobody is in that position in this world. In America, there are many billionaires here, I heard. The billion dollars is not the point. Can you sell your wife’s love organ, trading with this building? No, because then you lose your life, love and lineage and your children and your descendents, and eventually the nation and the world. Isn’t it true? Because everything begins from a certain point. Absolutely yes. It’s late night. You have to answer quickly. I don’t like the color grey. It’s got to be clear. God set the practice of True Love as the nucleus, and from that point he began to create. Nucleus. Where is that nucleus? The senator who gave congratulatory remarks tonight, where are you? Well, he represents the American congress and senate, so we should ask him. God set the practice of true love as the nucleus, and from that point He began to create.
Where is that nucleus? Up in the sky? In God’s palace? No. In your own body. Your love organ. Husband’s love organ, and wife’s love organ. This is the secret and truth and conclusion I am telling you. If you truly understand, put your hands together and make a big applause (applause). Thank you. If you truly understand the value of it, if anybody separated these palaces, and destroy; abuse, then they should be punished. (It is) like selling life, selling love, and selling lineage. That is the importance and preciousness of our love organ, sexual organ.
American presidents, up to this point, 43, 44, but even if we want to trade with all of these presidents, we wouldn’t give up our spouse’s love organ, would we? No. If you do that, even if you can enter the Kingdom of God trading with spouse’s love organ, you wouldn’t do that. Because without your wife’s love organ, you cannot build God’s ideal family. If anybody deviates from this principle, if anybody goes against it, they are like dung eating dogs. They are not human beings. Maybe, between husband and wife, if you do not have absolute confidence, you have to tie up your love organs to each other, and never be separated. Maybe that’s the way you can secure your life eternally.
As a minister, reverend, standing in front of a public podium like this, talking about sexual organ and palace of life and palace of love, you may take it as an insult, but this is the universal truth, the secret. We are not talking about abuse of the sexual organ, but we are talking about refining, cleaning our concept about this organ. Is this (true). Yes. Again, the sexual organ, your love organ, is the nucleus. Why don’t you whisper. This organ, you cannot share this secret to anybody else but to your close family members. Those who can do it, show your hands; up high. (Those) who recognize the value of the sexual organ. Show your hands. What about both hands if you truly understand the value of the sexual organ you have and your spouse has. Who doesn’t show hands? Maybe I will have to kick your sexual organ, then. If you cannot see the value and preciousness of your sexual organ, what shall we do with you, then? It’s not a laughing issue, actually. I had to study every kind of philosophy and religious teaching, and this and that. Even grandparents, grandfather and grandmother, they have to cherish and protect these sexual organs until they die. Even after they die. Your mother and father, your children, everybody, no exception. Unless you secure this sexual organ intact for three generations in your family, your family cannot enter the kingdom of God. I searched every corner of the Spirit World and I challenged God many times in the Spirit World, and that’s the way I got this answer. It’s not a simple answer. Do you understand? Then, would you like to give an award to Rev. Moon, congratulate Rev. Moon. Victory. (clapping) Thank you. So, we brought a success in Washington’s speech.
You are in the position of objects, partners, and you brought success to me. Just like in the position of God, when he first created Adam and Eve, and they gave the first cry, God was positioned in the parental position. By the same token, in our life, unless you have your first child, you cannot be called as Father or Mother. That’s why God’s Principle of Creation is living for the sake of others. That is the nucleus of True Love. Therefore, God exists for the sake of others, too. But God has been put down, God has been labeled as dead. All kinds of insults and criticism. But when you build your ideal family, God is your center of that family. You have to put God in the throne. That is the era of complete liberation for God and humanity.
So your sexual organ is not yours; the owner is not you. The husbands’ sexual organ belongs to his wife. The owner of the wife’s sexual organ is her husband. So you shared ownership of the sexual organ. So that means as a husband, even though you have your sexual organ, you cannot abuse your sexual organ all by yourself because it belongs to your wife, isn’t it true? (yes). If you know this truly, you do not need more explanation. We are running out of time. Let me read it quickly, then. You know all, that’s it. So God cannot punish Rev. Moon. God will even have to be attracted by me, because absolute love, unique love, and unchanging love, eternal love can be perfected through the partner of love, too. So even in the position of God, God will have to be attracted by me. Because I am in the position of a partner of His love. Do you understand? (yes) Thank you. Oh, I can have a good dream now, you all understand.
Therefore, to become God's children, our first responsibility is to resemble God Himself. Because God is such a being. What about the rabbi here. Israel cannot do everything all by itself. Israel needs a partner, too, in the eyes of God. We need to embody true love. The way to embody true love begins by living as a filial child, then a patriot, a saint, and finally a divine son and daughter of God. That’s the way we can build God’s ideal family. Without having God’s ideal family foundation, we cannot claim the Universal Peace Federation is the Universal level of God’s ideal family. At that stage we can experience the innermost emotions of God's heart. God knows and Satan knows this truth. So even eventually Satan has to surrender and admit that this is the Universal truth. Satan has to surrender in front of Jesus; in front of God. Satan will have to voluntarily kneel down and beg for forgiveness. As a filial child, a patriot a saint and divine sons and daughter we have to understand God’s innermost emotions of God’s heart. and resolve the grief that God has experienced for tens of thousands of years ever since the fall of Adam and Eve. Has anybody thought of this? God has never met such a person who thinks such a way. But it is not God who can solve these problems, but the person or champion, or Messiah, or whoever, that particular responsible person should solve these problems. God is almighty. It was not due to any (His) shortcoming or lack of ability that God (He ) has been imprisoned in great pain and has endured immense suffering behind the scenes of history. Because of you, fallen humanity, God has been in great pain. It was because there are provisions in the Principle of Restoration. Nobody reached the perfected Adam and Eve’s position yet. What about Rabbi, have you reached that position? No, nobody. If you cheat your congregation, you are worse than Satan. There is a historical fact that over six million Jews were massacred by Hitler. In that position, Hitler was Satan, the devil. Jesus Christ didn’t come to die on the cross. I cannot get into the details of that, but that is the fact It was because there are provisions in the Principle of Restoration which He was not free to disclose, that called Him to wait with forbearance until Adam and Eve's positions, lost at the human fall, were recovered with the appearance of the perfected "(Second Adam)." God could not tell people about all this until the time is right. When you look at the chestnut tree, the chestnut, it takes time for the chestnut to be ripe. But like the month of July, June, you cannot eat them, because it is not delicious, but you have to wait until the time comes, like September, then it is a really delicious chestnut. By the same token Although God is all-powerful, He will not set aside the eternal laws and principles that He Himself established. I am not talking about the kindergarten level, I am talking about the level of PhD. If you want to get PhDs, you have to learn from me. The Presidents and whoever, whatever you may be, you have to learn from me. When you join the Spirit World, you will face the consequences. You may be put in a dark place where there is no light. Think of it. People labeled God as dead, but God did not say anything. He endured. Although God is all powerful, God will not set aside the eternal laws and principles that He Himself had established. God has to follow those principles and laws because that is the eternal laws and principles. Once everybody is perfected, that can be taught. That is the way Satan can not accuse. In other words, the religions have to be recreated, reformed. Through Unification Principle, Unification Church teaching, religions can be reformed. They can find the right track to follow God and to find God. They don’t understand the purpose of Jesus’ coming. Think of it, Jesus still remains in Paradise, not in the Kingdom of God. Who knows this? Who understands why? Reverend Moon is the only one who can explain about this. If I am lying, go and find the truth in the Spirit World. It doesn’t’ take, it shouldn’t take force, but should be a natural process. It’s too long, I have spent too much time. I covered less than one third. How can I do it? You have all the written text, don’t you? Then shall we stop here?
Well, you are supposed to eat dinner. This is a banquet. But I spent too much time. It is almost 10 o’clock. You couldn’t eat yet, so I am a bad person, uhh? I should be punished. So pay attention again!
The Importance of Lineage
Do you know what has pained God's heart most, causing Him the greatest grief over the long history since the fall of Adam and Eve? God lost His lineage. And with the loss of His lineage, He lost His right of ownership. Let me talk about lineage for a moment. Lineage is more important than life and more important than love. The Westerners don’t think of the value of lineage. Life and love come together to create lineage. Lineage cannot be established if either life or love is missing. Am I right? So you know. Therefore, among the three qualities that define the parent-child relationship, love, life and lineage, lineage is the fruit. You Westerners, you have to be grateful that you hear this truth. Even if you sacrifice your wealth, the millionaires and billionaires, even if you spend all of your assets, if you truly understand this truth, you wouldn’t feel bad, you wouldn’t feel sorry. Your money is not just for yourself. I am on the road covering the entire world. I don’t have money. Would you like to give hundreds of millions of dollars to me? I have spent millions of dollars for the sake of America and American people. I have given everything. In a Chinese restaurant after lunch, you burp and say that, ohh, where is my limousine? But I didn’t live my life that way. Even when I was covering the entire nation of America to give a speaking tour, I ate at McDonald’s to save time; to save money, to spend more money for the sake of the people who need more. But people thought I would go to the most expensive Chinese restaurant and so forth. But no. Oh, I had a limousine to travel many hundreds of miles every day, but when people find out, those CIA, those FBI people, they found out that I didn’t have that car for my luxury, but for the purpose of covering many hundreds of miles every day. Well, let’s not talk about it.
The seed of true love is embedded in God's lineage. Is it true? Seed of life and love are embedded in God’s lineage. Where else could they come from? Man’s love organ and husband’s and wife’s palace of love is embedded there too. God's lineage provides the context and environment for a true life. Hence, for us to become the ideal people envisioned by God, that is, people of ideal character, and to create ideal families, we first need to be linked to His lineage. To take it a step further, only when we are linked to God's lineage is it possible to create God's homeland, the ideal nation. Only when we are linked to God's lineage is it possible to establish world peace. That’s the only way. Everybody should say “Yes”. You are in the position of students tonight. Even if the American President sits here, I will treat him the same way. I am so candid and frank. Oh, I can do ???? according too, I know how to do it, I can do that too. But my conscience doesn’t allow that. I am telling you the truth from God, not mine. What about you, lady, madam? Looks like Indian, or Muslim. You must be feeling cold. I emphasize this so much so that you can understand it. Only when we are linked to God's lineage is it possible to establish world peace. Please inscribe the absolute importance of lineage in your hearts. I cannot emphasize this enough. If you want to show your hands, right hand or left hand? Show your right hand, then. I repeat. I cannot emphasize the importance of lineage enough. Those who understand that, show your right hand. Down please, thank you.
Without lineage, neither life nor love can endure. Am I right? Westerner’s, they talk about a pre-nuptial agreement, like a dog; dogs don’t do it, even. Why do you laugh? Isn’t it true; I’m telling you the truth. Am I wrong? If anybody does not agree with me, challenge me; maybe I will slap him or her. Maybe the police will arrest me. Well, let’s not waste time. I have to enjoy my talking too. Without lineage, neither life nor love can endure. You strive to set a good tradition, but it will endure only through your lineage. As husband and wife, you have to set the good tradition. Without lineage you cannot set a good traditional as Husband and wife. Lineage is the bridge allowing the parents' spirit to carry on through subsequent generations. When you get old, you understand your parents’ hearts and so forth, through this lineage. What about you westerners, when your parents become old, do you want to send them to a senior’s home? Because you don’t want to live with them, you don’t love them? Think of it seriously. You have to serve and attend your grandparents. Your grandparents love your children more than they love you. Before they pass into the Spirit World, you have to serve them well, you have to attend them well. In other words, lineage is the first and final condition necessary for parents to harvest the fruits of their love, the fruits of their life and the fruits of their joy. We need to know this with certainty. Do you follow me? Then pay tuition to me. Nothing is free. If you take everything free, you don’t cherish the value. Well, the angels will drive your car tonight to go home, if you don’t have money because you have to pay tuition.
God intended for the seeds He planted to grow into a bountiful crop to be harvested in the autumn in the Garden of Eden. But it was lost because of the Fall of Man. What is the purpose of religion. To find this seed. The ideal of God's creation was that He would raise Adam and Eve, His son and daughter, to the point where they would blossom in true love, give bloom to true life, and bear fruit in a true lineage. Adam and Eve had children. Was that before their fall, or after their fall? (after) God desired to harvest the owners, families and nation of eternal life, eternal love and eternal lineage. Yet when Adam and Eve fell, this lineage, more precious than life itself, was lost. The fruits of true life and true love never matured. They became the fruits of Satan, lacking any relationship with Heaven. From them descended the six billion people now covering the earth. I repeat God intended for the seeds He planted to grow into a bountiful crop to be harvested in the autumn in the Garden of Eden. He wanted to have a festival together after the harvest. The ideal of God's creation was that He would raise Adam and Eve, His son and daughter, to the point where they would blossom in true love, give bloom to true life, and bear fruit in a true lineage. God desired to harvest the owners, families and nation of eternal life, eternal love and eternal lineage. That has been God’s ideal of creation. I deserve a round of applause; I give you this truth.
God's Suffering in Search of the True Parents
False love, false life and false lineage infested the earth. God's love, life and lineage fell into the hands of the adulterer Satan, the enemy of love. Heaven and earth were suffocated and transformed into hell. The world became a wretched place, far from God's presence. Yet humanity to this day lives in ignorance of this. Up to this point, nobody was aware of this fact. I’m sure you are hearing this for the first time, because you didn’t know. People are deluded into believing that the lineage of the enemy is the lifeline upon which the world depends. This is the wretched truth about human beings, all of whom descended from the fall. Who’s responsibility is it? That is why we refer to this world as hell on earth. God views humanity's tragic situation with a heart full of pain. Who understood this pain? Today, tomorrow, this pain will continue. Because of us, fallen human descendents. The fallen partners of love. False family, false nation, false world. We are all in trouble, like sick people.
After creating Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, and once they matured in His true love, God intended to wed them with His Holy Blessing and bequeath to them Heaven's right of ownership. I’m talking about history. God wanted Adam and Eve to inherit from Him the ownership of the entire universe. Because of the fall, however, all this fell under Satan's control. We have to restore that. God is like a father who worked and sweated his entire life to accumulate assets for his children, only to have a thief steal everything in one night. It is true.
Who can comprehend the sorrowful, painful heart of God? God lost His lineage, lost His children, and was forced to hand over the ownership of the nations and world to Satan. Nobody taught us. Satan was watching God not to tell the secret to humanity. Because the human ancestors committed this sin, they have to solve this problem all by themselves. Humankind. So Satan says to God, “Liberate me first, and then, you can tell humanity. There was only one way to recover this lineage and ownership. This was the path to win the natural subjugation of Satan, to have Satan surrender voluntarily. What is the secret to accomplish this? It is only by the power of true love, when we love our enemies more than we love our own children. Why? Because the love of the Archangel is lower than the love of Adam. The perfected Adam’s love would be an even higher level. Upon that, we are talking about building the kingdom of God. So being under Satan’s control means under Satan’s level of love. So, therefore, this Satanic world, even if we have to sacrifice everything, we have to reach the level of perfected love. It took thousands of years. So you have to repent in front of God, and you have to do your absolute best to reach that level. To reach beyond Adam and Eve. That’s the way you can perfect yourself. That’s the way that you can become True Parents. That’s the way you can build true family. Eventually you can enter the Kingdom of God with your entire family. Because that is the way you can restore True Love. And that way God will have to watch you and follow you. If you don’t believe me, go ahead and die and find out yourself. Think about it. God has been enduring all these years. Thousands and thousands of years. But now I am telling you the truth, the secret. Even if you sell your nation, America, you have to find this truth, because we have to build the Kingdom of God, the Peace Kingdom on earth. This earth is that precious. That way Satan can not put his foot on this earth. Once everything is revealed, Satan can not be here. That’s why we have to make Satan surrender voluntarily. How can we do it, again? By the power of True Love. By loving our enemies more than we love our own children. Jesus Christ said “Love your enemy” too. But he didn’t get into the details of how to love your enemy. Rev. Moon is teaching you here tonight. What does thank you sound like?
Was there ever a time when God, as their True Father and True Mother, could rejoice with human beings, enjoying the natural bonds of parent and child? Has God enjoyed even a year of comfort with His children, knowing that what He created was good? You, Buddhist monk, answer me! It’s a big problem. I am not telling you a lie. When you join the spirit world, in the spirit world, if I ask you this question, you have to answer this. You may regret if you don’t follow this truth. So now I am warning you, I am giving you this truth. Do you understand? What school of Buddhism are you belonging to? You teacher Monk Bok Chang died recently. My youngest son became a friend with him. When he died my son went there to share the condolences and pay tribute to his death, and he was treated like your teachers’ family member. Maybe he is in a good place in the spirit world. The answer is no; God has not enjoyed this even for even one hour. And has anyone been able to comfort God in this pain? No, because no one has known the reason for this unbridgeable gap between God and humankind. Who else can teach you this truth. Do you understand that? Only Rev. Moon does that. Do you understand? If you don’t have an answer now, go ahead and pray. Put your life on the line and just pray about it. I repeat , because no one has known the reason for this unbridgeable gap between God and humankind. No one has known why God and humanity are in such a tragic circumstance. Has anybody know? No. Now, tonight, I am revealing this truth, so you come to know. I don’t have money to catch a taxi cab tonight, but would you like to provide enough money to invite 100 people for a banquet? I don’t find anybody who can do that. What I mean is that you have to open yourself and be alert.
The biblical account of Cain and Abel reveals the beginnings of human conflict right in Adam's family. Your mind and body are struggling. Your nations are struggling. Communism and Democracy are fighting. Rev. Moon, innocent man was imprisoned. It is all a battlefield. It provides the archetype for humankind's unending history of struggle, war and conflict. We are conflicted on many levels, beginning with the war between body and mind within each individual and extending to wars between nations and even to the global conflict between materialism and theism. Absolute materialism, absolute Theism were not found. That’s why they are still fighting; the global conflict between materialism and Theism Extreme satanic selfish individualism threatens our prosperity even today. We deem young people to be the hope of humanity holding the promise for the future, but drugs and free sex enslave them. We have to take care of it. That’s why we need UN Peace Forces, to stop them, to stop young people from falling in to drugs and free sex and this and that all around the world. We have to clean up this mess. Advanced countries seem to believe that material goods are all that matter. They recognize only their own interests while ignoring the misery of tens of thousands of people who die of starvation every day. Well, the third world countries, they survive on a few dollars every day, but the wealthy countries, they spend hundreds of dollars every day to live. So if we know the reality, we have to repent. Over 40 per cent of those people dying of starvation are children. Every day, over 60,000 innocent people are dying of starvation. We have to build orphanages, we have to save them, we have to provide food. We have to create heavenly citizens, heavenly nations, not religions. Religions didn’t do everything right in the past. Sometimes they made grave mistakes, too.
Who can untie this ancient knot of Cain and Abel? They don’t know. It has been tightened for thousands of years and grows ever more tangled. Do you think the United Nations can do it? Don’t dream it. The U.N. at its founding proclaimed a movement for world peace, and for sixty years it has dedicated itself to this task; yet world peace still remains a far distant dream . Peace among nations can never come when those entrusted with the task have not resolved the Cain-Abel relationship between their own mind and body. Do you think we have to do something? Don’t you think so? If you agree that we have to do something, show your hands. Well, I see some hope among the Washingtonians. Maybe the spirit world is washing the stones. Well, I pray that the Washingtonians become the people who can save your nation, America, and people in the world. Otherwise. Therefore, the time has come to launch an Abel-type United Nations that will set its course according to God's will.
God eagerly anticipated that someone would come and resolve these tragedies, but no such person appeared on earth. God waited and waited, looking for anyone who would take on the role of the True Parent. If someone had come forward, I am certain that God would have appeared in his dreams, carried the sun and moon to him, and showered forth lightning of joy and thunder of ecstasy from the heavens. Do you think the Lord of the Second Coming will come in the clouds? No. You have to understand this particular phrase
In this sense, it is a miracle of miracles that for the first time in history a man has succeeded in establishing the position of Adam, securing the position of the owner of true love, and received God's anointing as the True Parent of humanity. Think about the pain and suffering I had to endure all these years in order to reach this position. If they had listened to me a long time ago, the world would have been changed a long time ago. So, please have hope and believe in the promise for the future. And work with Washington Times. And you have to make a big show, big noise for the sake of humanity and God. It is an amazing fact that his lifetime coincides with yours, and that you and the True Parents breathe the same air. At the same time you are breathing the same air with Rev. Moon, who is the True Parent of humankind. Isn’t it amazing? All the four great founders of religions, they are here too. They proved that, too. Adam and Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Moses, Jesus; all the good presidents, they cannot solve this problem. They did not understand, but I am the one who knows this truth. I am giving you the truth tonight. You, Rabi too, you have to wake up. You have to understand why Hitler massacred 6 million Jews. Everybody, Jews and Christians, everybody should repent. That was a tragedy of humanity. About 20 years ago, I proclaimed that Jesus, Confucius, Buddha, and Mohammad, they are all my students. Then, Khomeini, the President of Iran at that time sentenced me, gave me a death sentence. But he died before me; I am still surviving. The time has come that I can even reveal the secret book hidden in the Kingdom of God in Heaven. I gained victory in the position of the horizontal True Parent, who comes to rescue fallen humanity. On that foundation, on January 13, 2001, I dedicated to Heaven the "Coronation Ceremony of God's Kingship." By that ceremony I liberated and released God. Who offered this Coronation ceremony? God Himself? Jesus? Confucius? True Parents? Who are True Parents? I don’t know. You don’t understand the role of True Parents By that ceremony I liberated and released God the vertical True Parent who has taken responsibility for the Providence of Restoration. In all of history, this was the highest and greatest blessing humanity has ever received. This victory was absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal. Through this absolute providential victory, God's body and mind are completely liberated! Nobody knew this. Well, it’s not easy for anybody to even exactly pinpoint from what point Spring begins, from what point summer begins.
The Way to Peace Through the Holy Blessing Ceremony
Respected leaders! Our bondage to the lineage of Satan has caused so much suffering throughout history. Let us now boldly step forth to sever it and be grafted onto the root of the lineage of the True Parents. Why should we foolishly continue to live and die as wild olive trees? A wild olive tree, even if it lives a thousand years, will only continue producing the seeds of more wild olive trees. We have to cut it off. No matter how big and how gracious looking that wild olive tree may be, we have to cut it off and be engrafted in to the true olive tree; tree of life and tree of love. Because we are the descendents of the human fall, fallen human ancestors. Then, where can we find the path to escape this vicious cycle? It is through the Holy Blessing.
The Holy Blessing Ceremony offers the grace of being grafted onto the true olive tree. It was inaugurated through the True Parents, who bring God's true lineage to humankind. Oh, you drank holy wine tonight, too. But you still have another step to go to be fully receiving the Blessing. Once you change your lineage to God's lineage, your offspring will belong to God's lineage naturally. The Holy Blessing is received in three stages: rebirth, resurrection, and eternal life. Once you receive the True Parents' Holy Blessing, you can give birth to pure, sinless offspring and build an ideal family.
The best way to receive the Holy Blessing is with someone from another race, nationality or religion. Imagine, all the American young people marry Russian young people. I call this an "exchange marriage." First, they come together and meet at one point, cross like this and then eventually they switch the places. Well, I call this exchange marriage. Russians become American Family members, Americans become Russian family members. They exchange the position and places. Your line of conscience is in between. So, centering on that conscience line, you have to rotate, you have to make a sphere shape. Then you don’t need religion, you don’t need the nation, you can enter the Kingdom of God naturally. Because of the fall of man, religions appeared, national boundaries appeared.. You need the Messiah because of the fall of man. The time has come that we all take down the signs of religions and the signs of churches. What we need is the ideal family, which can be the foundation to build the Kingdom of God on earth and in heaven. I call this an "exchange marriage." This contributes to the enormous task of transcending, repeat after me, transcending; transcending the barriers of race, culture, ethnicity and religion and creating one family of humankind. This is like a work of revolution. We have to go through this process. In other words, Americans shouldn’t just marry Americans. We have to reach beyond national boundaries, beyond religious boundaries. Again, centering on our conscience line, which is the guideline. The peoples and nations should all be based on the conscience line. In God's sight, skin color makes no difference. God does not stand behind the barriers of nation religion and culture. They are nothing more than the Devil's tricks. He has used them to rule over humanity as a false parent for tens of thousands of years. People are ignorant of it. That’s why they didn’t feel it.
Imagine two enemy families who have cursed each other throughout their lives, people who would never dream of living together. What would happen if these families joined together through an exchange Holy Marriage Blessing? Would the parents of two such families curse their son and daughter who became husband and wife, loved each other and built a happy home? If their son were to love this beautiful daughter of a hated enemy, and she were to become their daughter-in-law and give birth to Heaven's grandchildren as pure and clear as crystal, the grandparents would smile with pleasure. I have been going through all kinds of struggle and dangerous situations, but because of protection from God and love from God I still survived. And I came to Washington DC tonight and I am sharing this Truth with you. Because God has been with me all the way. Suppose the American government and the United Nation support me in full strength. Don’t you think Rev. Moon can unite the entire world, all the races, all the religions? I have been educating people; the leaders. I came from a far away rural farming country of Korea. But once I found out the Truth from God, I decided to take the responsibility of saving humanity and saving the entire world. I wanted to change the Sahara Desert into a green field. That kind of determination was there with me at that time. So my life has been poor, pitiful. You Koreans, if you understand clearly, you have to wake up.(Father Moon spoke to someone in the audience at this point, but it was not translated). Christianity in general will become weaker and weaker unless they go with God’s Truth which is given in these Last Days. This is New Truth. They have to be reformed. The New Age came. All the religions have to be united now. I am appealing to all of the religions and all of the religious leaders to work together to complete the Bering Straight Project, which I will explain later. They probably have to, they maybe have to chip in together, from every religion, all the religious leaders, because this project will be for the sake of the well being of the entire humanity. I repeat, if their son were to love this beautiful daughter of a hated enemy, and she were to become their daughter-in-law and give birth to Heaven's grandchildren as pure and clear as crystal, the grandparents would smile with pleasure. In time the lineages once soaked with enmity would be transformed. Do you understand the meaning of the exchange marriage? It may take thousands of years, but it must be completed.
What method other than exchange marriage will empower Whites and Blacks, Jews and Muslims, Orientals and Westerners, and people of all races to live as one human family? This is the only secret. We can unite the entirety of humanity. The ideal family is the model for living together in peace. I am building condominiums which can accommodate tens of families representing different races, different religions, and different creeds to live as one family. The ideal family is the model for living together in peace. The ideal family is the nest where we live and learn to become one. There we have the foundation of love and respect between parents and children, shared trust and love between husband and wife, and mutual support among siblings. For this fundamental reason, you should receive the Holy Marriage Blessing from the True Parents and establish Heaven's tradition of ideal families. For this purpose, I am giving my absolute best.
A Life of True Love
Let me reiterate: To resemble God, the original Being of true love, we (you) should become the owners of true love. We should embody true love and practice it in order to develop our character. This is the way each of us can become true parents.
Then, what is a life of true love? True love is the spirit of public service. You cannot see it. It brings the peace that is at the root of happiness. Selfish love is a mask for the desire to have one's partner exist for one's own sake; true love is free of that corruption. Rather, its essence is to give, to live for the sake of others and for the sake of the whole. True love gives, forgets that it has given, and continues to give without ceasing. True love gives joyfully. We find it in the joyful and loving heart of a mother who cradles her baby in her arms and nurses it at her breast. True love is sacrificial love, as with a filial son who gains his greatest satisfaction in helping his parents. God created the universe out of just such love: absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal, investing everything without any expectation or condition of receiving something in return.
True love is the wellspring of the universe. Once a person possesses it, true love makes him or her the center and the owner of the universe. True love is the root of God and a symbol of His will and power. When we are bound together in true love, we can be together forever, continually increasing in the joy of each other's company. The attraction of true love brings all things in the universe to our feet; even God will come to dwell with us. Nothing can compare to the value of true love. It has the power to dissipate the barriers fallen human beings created, including national boundaries and the barriers of race and even religion.
The main attributes of true love are that it is absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal, so whoever practices God's true love will live with God, share His happiness and enjoy the right to participate as an equal in His work. Therefore, a life lived for the sake of others, a life of true love, is the absolute prerequisite for entering the Kingdom of Heaven.
Respected leaders, you are now living in an age of blessing. God's promises are coming to fruition. The Kingdom of Heaven on earth, the Kingdom of Peace that is God's ideal of creation, is being established before your eyes. My life of more than eighty years, this lonely path trod solely for Heaven and stained with blood, sweat, and tears, is now bearing victorious fruit for the sake of the world's six billion people. From the spirit world, the Founders of the world's religions, tens of thousands of saints and your own good ancestors are watching your every movement. They may give you blessing, but if you deviate they may punish you too at the same time. Whoever, therefore, strays from the heavenly path will be punished accordingly. Not by Satan, but your own ancestors will do that.. So once you know the truth, you have to live in that truth. Don’t deviate from it. If it is necessary, they will take you to the spirit world quicker. Earlier than expected. If that is the only way to save you, they will do that.
In more than 180 countries, Ambassadors for Peace who have inherited Heaven's will and tradition are making serious effort. I was told that there are more than 50,000 Ambassadors for Peace around the world. That’s a wrong number. They are making serious effort day and night, to proclaim the values of true love and true family. They are moving forward with full force to establish peace on this earth. In the Middle East, one of the world's tinderboxes, Jews, Christians and Muslims have found the resources in my philosophy of peace to engage in a new dimension of dialogue. In past decades my Unification Thought played a decisive role in ending the Cold War. Now I am successfully leading behind-the-scenes efforts to bring about the re-unification of my homeland of Korea. Right now I am doing it. You Korean residents, you understand what I am saying. No time to deal with you.
But I am not yet satisfied, because I began my life's work at the command of Heaven. All of these problems came out of the thousands of years of human history. I have to clean these problems up in my own generation. Without doing it, if I join the spirit world, I am in trouble. I have come as the True Parent of humankind with God's anointing and I am determined to keep my promise to (God) Him. I am determined to obliterate all national divisions and barriers that have poisoned this earth, I am giving you the conclusion. You Christians. As long as the Unification Church is working on uniting all of the religions, there is hope. But if we stop everything, the world does not have any hope. Maybe humanity will disappear. Think about all of the nuclear power. Nuclear bombs. They can kill entire humanity over 100 times. We have to secure peace among us. The entire humanity, all the religions, all the different thoughts and ideologies, they have to be straightened out. That’s what I have been doing. I have been laying the foundation to find this true path to God. You remember this. Don’t you think I deserve another round of applause? I wish all of the languages in the world can be united and become one language. I insist on it. That is one of the reasons that I created the UN College at the University of Bridgeport. The master of ceremonies tonight declared that36,000 American young elites will be educated to work as Peace Force, peace corps people to help the people in the world where they need help. I offered the Coronation Ceremony of God’s Kingship on January 13, 2001, so by the year 2013 I have to complete this mission to unite the world and unite the people. Leaders from around the world, I am determined to obliterate all national divisions and barriers that have poisoned this earth and to establish the world of peace, where all people everywhere can live hand in hand. They believe Rev. Moon. They know Rev. Moon will keep his promise. He is not going to disappear without keeping his promise.
Respected ambassadors for peace: I believe you have learned many things through the message from God that I am conveying to you today. Humanity continues to drift aimlessly and needs your help more than ever as people representing Heaven. Please take this opportunity to make a new determination to be Heaven’s envoys prepared to uphold Heaven’s command. With this in mind, I would like to summarize the message I have given today so that we can all take the mission given to us by Heaven and inscribe it deep within our hearts.
What did I say was lost by the fall of Adam and Eve, who were created as God’s children?
First, the realm of the lineage given to us by God was lost. Blood lineage is the most special among all special rights that parents pass on to their children. By the fall, Adam and Eve received the false lineage of Satan and descended to become Satan’s children. We must understand with certainty that all human beings today without exception, regardless of who they may be, are the descendents of the fall who have inherited the blood lineage of Satan. When God created Adam and Eve, He invested His entire being – 100 percent – and created them on the standard of absolute love, absolute faith, and absolute obedience. He gave them His lineage as the seed for their love and life.
So from this moment, you are in a different position. The path has been opened wide for you to change your lineage through the Holy Wine Ceremony handed down by the True Parents and be re-Blessed so that you may establish true families.
Second, the realm of siblings was lost by the fall when, in the family of Adam, the older brother Cain killed his younger brother Abel. God’s original structure and blessing was that siblings in a family would lead a life of love and harmony, but this was degraded to become an enemy relationship of envy and resentment.
This is the reason that humanity needs to complete the restoration of lineage through the worldwide exchange marriages led by Rev. Moon. Then Abel, who is comparatively closer to Heaven’s side, establishes the position of the older brother in the subject partner position. This would establish the original family structure
Ladies and gentlemen, because I have spent my life digging up these secrets of Satan, it was inevitable that I would face persecution and suffering so intense as to be indescribable in words. Now, however, I have been victorious over all obstacles, and I have declared the Age After the Coming of Heaven, when the power of Heaven becomes manifest. On this foundation, I am building an Abel-realm on the world level that brings together religions and nations representing 70 percent of the current world population. To create a Cain-realm on the world level, I am bringing together those with the Mongolian birth mark, which includes some 74% of the world’s population.
Now these two, the worldwide Abel realm and the worldwide Cain realm, must become one and become as one body with the Universal Peace Federation that has been initiated in the position of an Abel-U.N. To establish a world of peace on this earth, all national boundaries and other barriers must be removed on a level that transcends religion and nations. I would like to remind you that this is how all humankind will be able to enter the world of the original ideal of creation. It is our destiny to fulfill the responsibility to establish the original right of ownership lost by the fall of Adam and Eve.
Please remember that now is the time when the Abel realm, which is on the side of Heaven, must digest the Cain realm on a cosmic level. Then we make a new beginning toward establish the New Heaven and New Earth – or the Kingdom of God on Earth and in Heaven – with Heaven’s complete authority.
A Project for Peace
Leaders from around the world, let me take the opportunity provided by today's distinguished forum to reiterate my proposal for a truly providential and revolutionary project. You Americans, hear this. For the sake of peace and human welfare, I propose that we build a passage for transit across the Bering Strait, that remnants of Satan’s historical division between (Satan has historically divided) east and west, and north and south, and where the North American and Russian land masses are separated. You Christians, religious people, Americans, you should do this project. We have to build one nation under God, which is Chun Il Kuk, one nation under God. That will be built eventually, through working through this UPF and all the nations of the world and all the religions of the world. That would be God’s sovereignty. This passage, which I call the "World Peace King Bridge Tunnel," will link an International Highway System that will allow people to travel on land from Africa's Cape of Good Hope to Santiago, Chile, and from London to New York, across the Bering Strait, connecting the world as a single community. Once you become God’s people, you don’t need national boundaries. You don’t need different church buildings. You become one family. You can travel around the world in a single day.
God is warning that He will no longer tolerate separation and division. Oh, it’s not my talk, this is what God says. Think about the victims of hurricane Katrina. The American government already prepared a budget to save them. Carrying out this project will bind the world together as one village. It will tear down the manmade walls of race, The last 2000 years, they built these kind of walls, Walls of race culture, religion and country, and establish the world of peace that has been God's cherished desire for thousands of years.
The United States and Russia can become as one. The European continent, China, India, Japan, Brazil and all nations, and also all the world's religions, can combine their energies to succeed in this project. Not just the Unification Movement. The success of this project will be decisive in establishing a Peace Kingdom where people will no longer make war with each other. We must do it.
Ladies and gentlemen, some may doubt that such a project can be completed. But where there is a will, there is always a way especially if it is the will of God. Because God is almighty and omniscient, so if God is leading this project, it will be done. The science and technology of the 21st century render it possible to construct a tunnel under the Bering Strait. The construction costs are also not a problem. Think of how much money the entire world is wasting on war(s) If the Peace Keeping force is established, we can dispatch them to troubled areas and solve the problems peacefully, not with weapons, but with the power of true love. Humanity needs to realize that we are committing fearful sins in the presence of history and our descendants. Let us take one example. Just one example. How much money has the United States spent on the war in Iraq during the past three years? America has been doing this on behalf of the entire world, the United Nations, not for the sake of America. American soldiers have been fighting there for the sake of the world, for the sake of the freedom. This is peace force. Our Peace Forces will be dispatched to over 70 nations. No, we are not going to use machine guns. Like the problems in the Middle East, we can solve it. Though whoever favors wars, and whoever causes the trouble of wars are the (ones that are) evil. If we truly educate the people of the world with this powerful Truth, then within 10 years we can conquer the entire world with True Love, not with guns and machine guns and atom bombs. We must do it. So I am talking about creating a new level of Peace Keeping Forces. Do you think I can do it? Even if you people in this auditorium are fully educated, we can do it. It is approaching $200 billion. Suppose we spend this much money to build the international peace highway, then we can build peace in the world. They are not going to be allowed to transport any military gear, military weapons, only to be used for peace. This September 23rd, year 2005. If you truly agree with what I am teaching tonight, you have to make an announcement, on this day. That budget would be more than enough to complete the Bering Strait project. Have you heard about the six nation talks over the North Korean nuclear issue. It is almost over now; they reached an agreement, centering on Russia and China. Think of it, you know if we secured a budget of 200 billion dollars, we can solve all of the problems in the Korean peninsula. Before I die, I can complete this if I have such a budget. Do you welcome that?
In this age, war is a most primitive and destructive means of resolving conflict, and will never lead to lasting peace. People are dieing of starvation. More than 20 million people die of starvation every year, which is more than 60,000 people average a day. Now is the time, as the prophet Isaiah taught, to beat our swords into ploughshares and spears into pruning hooks. It wouldn’t take 10 or 20 years, if we truly are united in this spirit. All the great scholars from around the world; they can be educated with this kind of philosophy, this kind of truth. Then they will stand up with new determination to solve all of these problems. I am doing it actually, not just giving you empty talk. Think of Unification Church members. They used to be Hippies and Yippies. They were lost on the streets, but I brought them and educated them. They became the true leaders of this nation. I am an honest man. I have done that. I repeat, to beat our swords into ploughshares and spears into pruning hooks humankind should end the perverse cycle of sacrificing our children’s lives and squandering astronomical sums of money to fight wars . Without going through this, we can solve all the problems. Why should we sacrifice people’s lives in the battlefield. We have to protect their lives. (Why must we continue this tragic path, pouring countless dollars into wars that, in the end, will never bring the reconciliation of enemies?) The time has come for the countries of the world to pool their resources and advance toward the world of peace desired by God, the Master of this great universe. Would you march together for that?
Ladies and gentlemen, humanity is traveling down a dead-end street. The only way to survive is to practice the peace philosophy of true love, true life and true lineage taught by Reverend Moon. If all the university presidents and the United Nations agree upon this, we can do it quickly. Now that we have entered the Age after the Coming of Heaven, your good ancestors are activated and the heavenly hosts are sweeping down upon the earth. Soon the countries and peoples that appear strong and mighty will change course and shift in this direction. Probably the Communists will change their direction more quickly than the people in the free world. Think about China, Japan and Russia. If they are united then they can take over the entire Pacific Ocean. Who knows in the future, if the trend goes this way if there will be another world war centering on the Pacific Ocean. You politicians, think about it. We can educate them.
I leave you with a choice. It’s not my problem. I have told you all. Whether you die or live is your choice. There can be no perfection in ignorance. If you don’t know anything, there is no way to perfect yourself. The message from Heaven that I convey to you today is both a blessing and a warning to this generation. I, Reverend Moon, will take the lead in establishing true families, true societies, true nations and a true world. Will you join with me as I rise and gain strength in accordance with heavenly fortune? Or will you remain captive behind the same old walls, all of them Satan's handiwork. You, Protestants and Catholics, you all have to be united. No more separation. You have to straighten the course of the United Nations. We have to educate them. If you have such a spirit and determination. You have to utilize all the media arms, such as radios and televisions and so forth and spread this truth all over the world. It may not take even six months. We can do it. You, Archbishop Stallings, and this and that, all those leaders, I expect you to become such leaders. Do you understand? Or will you remain captive behind the same old walls, all of them Satan's handiwork; the wall of your religion, the wall of your culture, the wall of your nationality and the wall of your race, and spend the remainder of your time on earth in agony and regret? Heaven is summoning you to be the wise leaders who will set aright this world of evil and establish a new heaven and new earth. Would you like to become the emissary of God?
Today we are participating in the inauguration of the Universal Peace Federation. UPF; look at this, UPF. (In English): Universal Peace.. Federation. Universal Peace Happiness. Happiness Federation Happiness. Happy ... It represents God's victory, the fruit of the True Parents' blood, sweat and tears, and the world's cherished hope. It will carry out the role of an Abel-type United Nations in relation to the existing United Nations. That means we are not going to achieve our goal through fighting or war. Only through education and the power of True Love. We have to create the Peace Force. Abel Type United Nations Peace Force. We cannot stop in the middle. We have to complete. Think of the United Nations Peace Keeping role for the world in the past. You, particularly American citizens, think about it. It sometimes withdrew its forces before the mission was completed The Korean war is a good example. Under the banner of the Universal Peace Federation, we will serve as peace police and peace army to safeguard global peace. I have proved this in Korea in the past. When Korea was in the process of developing economy and this and that, I introduced German technology to China , too. You may think I am day dreaming, but I did it in the past. Again, the six nation talks over the North Korean nuclear power. Behind the scenes, I arranged such a way that they could reach the agreement. The next meeting is in November. I don’t want to see United Nations forces or American soldiers drop out in the middle of their mission in the future again. (There was a short gap here in the recording). You have responsibility to lead the people of the world in front of your ancestors, in the eyes of your future generations. If you don’t listen to me, if you don’t follow my teachings, I will leave my course, I will go back to my home country and focus on my homeland. I cannot erase my life history here in America the last 34 years. I want to cherish that. (I hope that you will put on new armor in this new age and be wise and brave activists in this worldwide peace force, for the sake of humanity's future.)
Please inscribe this warning from Heaven deep in your hearts. Remember that the only way to inherit Heaven's lineage, and to establish for eternity the ideal families that God has longed to see, is through the Holy Marriage Blessing established by the True Parents.
In closing, I ask you to devote your best efforts for the development and success of the Universal Peace Federation. Thank you very much. God’s Blessing be upon you. I am sorry that I took too much time that you skipped your dinner.
