The proclamation of the Messiah, Savior and True Parents, and its significance

We may all find ourselves on a common path of destruction unless we are able to resolve the crises we face through a love that transcends national boundaries and ethnic differences and encompasses all the world's peoples. Let me emphasize again: Any successful resolution of this crisis will be based on an effort to build a unified world through a movement of true love such as that rooted in the Unification Principle, or Godism. In early July this year, I spoke in five cities in Korea at rallies held by the Women's Federation for World Peace. There, I declared that my wife, WFWP President Hak Ja Han Moon, and I are the True Parents of all humankind who are together the Savior, the Lord of the Second Advent, and the Messiah.

Why would I stand before women leaders of Korea and make such an astonishing and fearful announcement? The reason is that God has been carrying out the providence to send the returning Messiah, the second perfected Adam. He subjugates Satan in order to establish a perfected Eve who will represent all women. God must do this, because it was when Satan caused Eve to fall that the origin of human history came to be permeated with sin.

Women are the center of the love, peace and spirit of service that protects our families, and it is the healthy family that is the starting point in our work to build world peace. The establishment of God-centered family ethics and the education of our children lie at the innermost core of my teachings. The family is the holy sanctuary that cleanses this defiled world.

That is the reason it was necessary that I, as the Messiah, make my declaration to women leaders gathered around President Hak Ja Han Moon, my wife, who stands in the position of perfected Eve. This declaration is an exhortation and notification to all who follow my teachings to join Mrs. Moon and I in our attendance to God on the path of sacrifice and service for the salvation of the world.

What is the age of the liberation of women from the viewpoint of providential history? To find Eve, I need to fight on the levels of the individual, family, tribe, people, nation, world and cosmos, that is, heaven and earth, and I even need to fight against God. These are the eight stages. God is testing me. God says to me, "Whatever you may say to me, I don't care!" It is the same as when a fallen child comes back home and says, "Oh, Mother!" with repentance, and the mother pushes the child away with the words, "You rascal, I don't care about you!" There still remains such a hill to be surmounted. No matter how much God tries, He cannot deny this principle.

There was a time when Reverend Moon fought with all the spirits in the spirit world, saying, "There is no way for God to live without this principle.” Therefore, chaos reigned in the spirit world for more than 40 days, and God had to step in and pass judgment. In the end He said, "Follow the words of Sun Myung Moon.'' Thereupon, a united realm was achieved. When he returned to the physical world, which was divided into left and right and front and back all fighting against one another, Reverend Moon was still able to proclaim to everyone that he is the Messiah and the True Parent, because he had received the seal of Heaven that marks him as the greatest leader of this world. (233-092, 1992.07.30)

The True Parents will not make their advent on the clouds from the sky. Instead, they will appear in this age and on this earth as Koreans, and lead the world into an age of peace and unity. During my life of more than 70 years, I have received much persecution while I practiced my teachings all around the world. I have never been defeated, however. My wife, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, has walked this path of suffering together with me as the representative of all women in the world. During the time that I, in the course of following the path of righteousness in accordance with God's Will, received persecution by unrighteous forces in the form of imprisonment, she made a determination to gather together righteous women of good conscience to begin a movement for peace. Her efforts have borne fruit in this rally today. (229-080, 1992.04.10)

From now on, Eve should not be made to stand in the background. Instead, she should stand side by side with Adam. That is why I have Mother stand beside me. Men should stand behind me and women should stand behind Mother, and they should attend us. I hope you will remember that the place where we absolutely proclaimed the foundation upon which husband and wife can thus unite was the inaugural assembly of the Women's Federation for World Peace. That assembly was the assembly for the liberation of women. If Rebekah had understood, 2,000 years ago, all that I have worked out and taught about the providence today, women in the world would not have been persecuted so much. They have been persecuted because no one knew about it until now. No one knew about Mother until now, either. By prolonging the three stages of formation, growth and completion, I invested myself. Therefore, since the time has come for us to save the sons and daughters of the unfallen world of the perfected realm, we have clearly proclaimed, "True Father is Sun Myung Moon and True Mother is Hak Ja Han Moon.” If we do not do that, we cannot receive the support of the spirit world. After we boldly proclaim such a thing to the world, there is not one person who can oppose us. This is due to True Parents' victory. (229-155, 1992.04.11)

Henceforth, no one will oppose us even if True Parents stand at the forefront. The time has come when we can naturally move on without facing opposition. Wherever we go in the world, we can give speeches in the name of True Parents. Even though True Mother officially announced in front of 150,000 women, "Reverend Moon is the True Father of Humankind and Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon is the True Mother of Humankind;” there was no one who opposed her. Instead, now people say, "We know that very well. How much persecution you have had to endure worldwide for the sake of humankind! Now we will follow you.” If you follow True Mother and True Father, you will enter the kingdom of God. You will cross the threshold of the heavenly kingdom. (230-096, 1992.04.26)

The life course that my wife and I have followed for the last 32 years, upholding our heavenly calling based on God's Will, is a course that we can be proud of in front of all Korean people and all of humankind. The path we walked until now was a thorny path that you could not even imagine. To liberate all humanity from the realm of sin, and to build a foundation for the reunification of the divided Korean peninsula, we have continued to fight, shedding blood and sweat in such places as America, the Soviet Union, China and Japan. Now our foundation has been solidly laid, and the time has come for us to show ourselves to the people of Korea.

During the last 30 years, before we were able to lay this worldwide foundation, my wife and I were subjected to the misunderstanding and persecution of our own brethren, the people of Korea, which was truly unbearable and sorrowful. Not only did the government persecute the Unification Church and me through successive administrations, but some Christians also slandered us and schemed against us quite maliciously.

In spite of all such difficult and unfavorable conditions, my wife and I united completely through God's Will and true love and overcame all difficulties. Now, the number of people who attend my wife and me as True Parents is growing each day in more than 160 nations across the world.

My wife, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, never wavered once, and she fulfilled all her duties and missions, both as the wife of a husband who is walking the path of the cross and as the mother of 13 children, as we surmounted the adversities along our course.

In light of this, when I inaugurated the Women's Federation for World Peace in Seoul in the presence of 150,000 women from 72 nations, I nominated my wife as its first president, for she is the exemplary model for women, and can lead all women worldwide from the forefront and show them the path to follow. (231-007, 1992.05.11)

The first ancestors, Adam and Eve, failed to become the True Parents, who are the origin of true love, true life and true lineage, and fell instead. Thus, humankind, their descendants, came to live amid sin and struggle. Conflicts between individuals or nations and antagonism between religions and ideologies all arise from the Fall. God's providence of salvation is to find and establish the True Parents again and fulfill the good ideal of creation. As True Parents, my wife, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon and I are carrying out a movement to save the world through true love in order to complete the providence, so that the harmony and unity of the purpose of creation can be realized. (267-260, 1995.01.02)

God has worked hard. He has undergone all kinds of hardships to raise the perfected Adam. Thus, True Father came into being. The true man of heaven was born. Satan's world knew that this man came as the true groom and owner, as well as the king of heaven and earth, the physical and spiritual worlds. Therefore, people worldwide, from individuals to families, nations, the world and the cosmos, all came together as representatives of the world to get rid of him.

While standing in the position where he was subjected to the kinds of persecution, schemes and slander that Satan perpetrated against God’s representatives throughout history, True Father achieved global victories on the levels of the individual, family, tribe, people, nation, world and cosmos, and thus became one with God. Moreover, for the first time in world history, he emerged as the victor and recovered individuals, families, tribes, people, nations, the world and the cosmos from Satan's world.

True Mother, who had been in the position to stand behind True Father, was placed on an equal footing with him for the first time in history, and she proclaimed the liberation of women worldwide. This means that True Father and True Mother can enter into the presence of God, together with their children, and inherit His absolute authority and absolute power, and starting with the original family, restore the tribe, people, nation, world and cosmos, thereby reorganizing the perfected world of God's Will. (234-264, 1992.08.26)

Everything was brought to a close in August of 1992 and the advent of True Parents was proclaimed, and thus True Parents were established and the age of True Parents was ushered in on earth. We are now entering the age where all that was lost by the nation of Israel and by Judaism, and all the responsibilities that America and Christianity failed to fulfill, can be revived and brought to settlement. (235-251, 1992.09.20)

True Parents and the beginning of the Completed Testament Age

If America unites with Heaven's providence and fortune, the entire world can be united. America must take responsibility. Korea represents the Old Testament Age and America the New Testament Age. The reason Jesus could not accomplish everything that had been prophesied in the Old Testament Age is because he was not able to take a wife and establish a family. These two nations must be united. First Korea and the Unification Church must unite from the positions of plus and minus. They are in the same position as Judaism and Israel at the time of Jesus. What was lost has to be restored again. Korea is in the position of lsrael. Next it has to expand throughout the free world, including the Christian world. First, from the Old Testament point of view, one way or another the realm of True Parents has to be established. Therefore, the Holy Wedding was held in 1960. This Holy Wedding concluded the Old Testament Age. In 1971 we moved to America to try to unite the democratic world and the entire free world in order to reach the world level. True Parents' position has now been firmly established along with the liberation of women, so we are proclaiming True Parents and the Completed Testament Age. (247-109, 1993.04.25)

The Christian cultural realm could not stand as the bride, so Mother gathered together women from around the world and in 1992 declared and expanded a great movement in seven countries, even including Russia. It is the movement for women's liberation. Because Mother proclaimed liberation and announced True Parents and the Completed Testament Age, the world under Satan’s dominion is ending. The Unification Church is the only entity that can save the family and save the nation. By means of forming anew the tradition of the family of True Parents as well as the true tribe, true people, true nation, true world and the true heaven and earth, the true heavenly nation is being realized. Things are developing according to this formula. (247-110, 1993.04.25)

From the point of view of restoration, from what point were the advent of True Parents and the Completed Testament Age announced? All people in the world are in Satan's realm, but we have finally ushered in the age where they are no longer separated from True Parents and are able to meet them and be with them. Therefore, when the liberation of women was proclaimed through the opening of the age of women on April 10, 1992, all women were given the right to become Mother's representatives centered upon her.

True Parents and the Completed Testament Age signify that Adam and Eve must return to the place where they can be perfected and unfallen. And all women in the world will be treated as Mother's representatives. Adam is one person, and so is Eve. This is important. There should be one perfected Adam and one Eve as well. Though True Parents finally came into existence in the course of the historical ages, from the horizontal viewpoint True Parents have to pass through the thousands of years from the time of Adam and Eve to resolve this matter. In other words, it must be resolved centering on the world-level woman and world-level man. (266-065, 1994.12.11)

The Unification Church's declaration of "True Parents and the Completed Testament Age” means we are at a turning point. Because we are going to create the ideal family and the ideal tribe, the Family Federation had to emerge. In the marriage Blessing of the Unification Church, the archangel at the completion level of the growth stage, namely the archangel on Heaven's side, marries. After receiving the Blessing, if you go beyond the completion stage, you can enter the realm of the direct dominion as part of the family of Adam. Accordingly, starting in 1960, I passed from the completion level of the growth stage into the completion stage, and during that course I entered a time of worldwide persecution. I had to get beyond that period of persecution to achieve settlement. The settlement that should have happened in 1952 was delayed; the age of women, centering on True Mother and including the liberation of women, was announced in 1992, and True Parents were able to stand anew in the same position in front of Heaven. If we had not liberated women, we would not have been able to complete the liberated realm of Adam. All people are brothers and sisters until the lost standard of husband and wife in Adam's family centered on the love of Adam and Eve is achieved. We must go over and form anew the ideal family after fulfilling our position as the children of God.

That is why I have led the way until now. Mother followed behind me. If she had stood next to me, she would have been violated by Satan. This is Mother's second restoration of Eve's realm in the world of indemnity. Christian history is all about the restoration of the Bride's realm, so the Allied Nations are the world centered on the Christian cultural realm. Because the world of the Bride's realm opposed me, the 4,000-year history begun from Jacob's family needs to be indemnified once again in 400 years, but I cannot live for 400 years.

To restore it through indemnity within the one generation of 40 years, I need to restore through indemnity the history of 4,000 years in 40 years. That is why all historical ages of the world are attacking me in full force. Though I may not have bombs thrown at me, the condition has to be established that they have at least struck me with something, even if it is as big as a bean. That is the condition of indemnity. It is one-to-one indemnity. When I fight against everything that has taken place in the historical ages and win, the satanic world will have to retreat.

That is why I have to bear the cross of persecution endured by the Abel-type men in the course of the 4,000-year history, centered on God's history until the coming of the Messiah, as the representative of the 40-year history. Because I thus brought the Cain and Abel realms under control, Mother could appear. This means that it is now the age of Mother, the mother who can bring unity between Cain and Abel. (264-231, 1994.11.03)

Through the proclamation of women's liberation, True Parents were finally able to establish the connection of the parents from a liberated position on earth, centering on the Lord of the Second Advent, who is the perfected Adam. Thus, we have entered the era when God can personally govern the entire created world. We cannot realize a united world on earth today without uniting the spirit world as well. After the Second World War, the worldwide Christian cultural realm should have become one centering on the coming Groom. However, the Messiah has now restored the world-level standard through indemnity and announced, "True Parents and the Completed Testament Age,” and the position where the united spirit world and the united physical world can come together as one has been established. The settlement of True Parents and the Completed Testament Age has finally taken place on this earth, and with the family as the center, the axis has been created by which the tribes, peoples, nations, world and cosmos, that is, all of heaven and earth, can be connected together.
