Section 5. The 2000s
With the start of the 21st century, True Parents announced a motto for each year which outlined the goal of fulfilling the Cheon Il Guk ideal by achieving the ideal of God and human beings united in love and completing the victories to liberate the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind.
In 2000 and 2001 they emphasized unity through true love. The motto for the year 2000 was, “The cosmic expansion of true love will perfect the new millennial kingdom,” and in 2001 it was “May the liberated Parents of Heaven and Earth, and children united as one in mind and body, fulfill the Will with true love, whose subject nature is absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal.”
From 2002 to 2008 True Parents presented mottos related to Cheon Il Guk. In 2002 it was “Mansei for the secure settlement of Cheon Il Guk in freedom, peace and happiness, the ideal of the Parents of Heaven and Earth.” In 2003 it was “May our families perfect true families of filial children, patriots, saints, and divine sons and daughters of Cheon Il Guk through true love.” The 2004 motto was “Proclamation of the era of God’s fatherland and the peace kingdom,” and in 2005 it was “Let us substantiate the ideal of the internal and external Cheon Il Guk.” The motto for 2006 was “The era of the secure settlement of the model providence for the ideal of peace in heaven and on earth,” and in 2007 it was “Eog-mansei for the reign of goodness and prosperity in Cheon Il Guk, bringing cosmic peace.” For 2008 it was “Mansei for the Cheon Il Guk—Universal Peace Federation in the jubilee year joining 2007 and 2008.”
From 2009 to 2013 they announced mottos about the unity and victory of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind. In 2009 it was “Proclamation of victory in the era when the Parents of Heaven and Earth establish the realm of the cosmic Sabbath with the authority of absolute sex manifesting in true love, true life and true lineage.” In 2010 it was “Mansei for the realm of the cosmic Sabbath of true love, where unity with a pure heart brings oneness in all victories.” For 2011 the motto was “Mansei for Cheon Il Guk, settled through harmony between children and the Parents who have heaven’s heart, whose harmony brings final and ultimate oneness to heaven and earth.” In 2012 and 2013 it was “Era of the victory, liberation and completion of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind.” From 2014 to 2020 True Parents have designated the motto as “Let us become true owners of Cheon Il Guk who practice true love, in resemblance to our Creator, the Heavenly Parent.”
The cosmic expansion of true love will perfect the new millennial kingdom
1 The motto of 2000 is, “The cosmic expansion of true love will perfect the new millennial kingdom.” The phrase “the cosmic expansion of true love” refers to the home of love. True love should expand from the existent world to the entire cosmos. “Cosmos” here refers to God’s home.
The motto’s overall meaning is that in the new millennium the home where God dwells should be perfected. The perfection of the kingdom of heaven, where God dwells everywhere eternally, begins in the new millennium through the cosmic expansion of true love.
2 The kingdom of heaven is the place where freedom exists eternally, where hope exists eternally, where happiness exists eternally, and where true love and true life exist eternally. This is certainly true, because everything that lives in the home of God is one with God. That is why all Unification Church members throughout the world live together by loving one another with the thought, “My home is your home.”
The people of the Unification Church see themselves as members of one family. They follow this rule because they dwell in the realm of the cosmic Sabbath. They advocate that we place our family before ourselves, and our brothers and sisters before ourselves, even as they place other church members before themselves. This is a true family connected with the true lineage, based on true love.
3 The motto for 2000 is “The cosmic expansion of true love will perfect the new millennial kingdom.” We must bring the age of the millennial kingdom. By this I mean that we are entering the age to “perfect the new millennial kingdom.” This is not a vague concept. When families restore their nation, they pass beyond the growth-stage standard where Adam and Eve fell and even beyond the completion-stage standard. There they can bless every family, tribe and people. By doing so, everything in heaven and on earth will be turned around.
Since we have indemnified and resolved everything in the era of the Third Adam and could enter the liberated era of the realm of the Fourth Adam, we should become families that transcend our nations. We have come to the era when we can be registered in the nation of Cheon Il Guk.
A realm has been formed in which freedom and victory can take root. This will lead to the liberation of the family. Our families will become just like Adam and Eves family, which did not need to register in the Garden of Eden. If you can live according to True Parents’ teachings and unite with their words, you enter into an era of liberation from an autonomous position. There you will not face restrictions on any path you take, on earth or in heaven. Consequently all national borders will disappear.
Therefore, you must pray from an autonomous position. Until now we beseeched heaven, saying “I wish and pray for this and that,” but from now on we will report to God. We will report about our good will and good deeds.
May the liberated Parents of Heaven and Earth, and children united as one in mind and body, fulfill the Will with true love, whose subject nature is absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal
4 At the very end of pledge 8 of The Family Pledge is the most important word: liberation. We are aiming to achieve the ideal of God and human beings united in love, and to perfect the realm of liberation in the kingdom of God on earth and heaven. The motto of 2001 is, “May the liberated Parents of Heaven and Earth, and children united as one in mind and body, fulfill the Will with true love, whose subject nature is absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal.” Actually we only needed to say subject nature of true love, but the phrase “is absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal” is added to the phrase, “true love, whose subject nature...”
This motto is needed during the era of the new millennium. In particular, children and parents must fulfill this together and create the kingdom of heaven on earth. Not only God but you also must accomplish this. Not only True Parents, but the liberated Parents of Heaven and Earth and we, their liberated children, must accomplish this. This must be fulfilled after achieving mind-body unity. That is why the subject nature of true love is the mainstream teaching. When we say “subject nature,” we are referring to the essential point. We must fulfill the Will with absolute love, unique love, unchanging love and eternal love, which God intended to fulfill.
5 The 2,000-year period until December 31, 2000, was a time of walking a worldwide indemnity course based on the realm of the Second Israel. Now that age has passed, and the dawn of the new Completed Testament Age has come, the era when the ideal of the Blessing can be expanded to the cosmos. This motto, “May the liberated Parents of Heaven and Earth, and children united as one in mind and body, fulfill the Will with true love, whose subject nature is absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal” is not only for one time, but is a theme that remains with you even on the other side in the eternal world. You must understand how valuable the family is, and you must offer to complete the Will of the Parents of Heaven and Earth after attaining mind-body unity.
To do that, we need to recover the sovereignty of the world and offer it to the Parents of Heaven and Earth. If we do that, all families under that sovereignty can easily follow the tradition and teachings of the Parents of Heaven and Earth, which are the tradition and teachings of God.
In order to establish God’s nation, which is based on the philosophy of true love, you must fulfill the eight stages of individual, family, tribe, people, nation, world, cosmos and God. You must establish the perspective of this nation, which is the teaching of True Parents. As families who have received the Blessing, this is your responsibility. That is why from today the contents of your prayer will be changed. Beginning now, we will end our prayers, “I pray in the name of _______ (your name), who has inherited True Parents’ realm of victory through the Blessing.” It means that without the Blessing, you cannot participate in True Parents’ realm of victory. But through the Blessing, you formed a blood relationship with True Parents, you connected anew to the heavenly lineage that had been severed by the Fall, and you joined in the bond that makes you sons and daughters of True Parents.
If Adam and Eve had not fallen, they would have formed a substantial realm where everyone would have been ruled by the unchanging and eternal God. Everyone would have received the Blessing, and everyone would have been connected to the love of God and the life of God. God’s lineage would have been established in the first generation ancestors, Adam and Eve, and would have been propagated in their family. With them as the seed, God’s bloodline would have been propagated to everyone. However, the seed of this blood lineage was not sown and did not bear fruit through three generations. This is the Fall. If True Parents are the first generation, you are the second generation. If you do not raise your sons and daughters well, you will not be able to escape from that tradition of fallen descendants.
6 From now you cannot visit True Parents as you please. There will be conditions that you need to meet. Once we have the heavenly nation, things will be strict. The secular laws of the Republic of Korea will pale in comparison. The laws on the path that remains in front of you are more than ten times stricter. You must complete this path in your lifetime. Since that kind of course remains ahead of you, how should you live from now on?
The age of prayer has passed. Prayers are answered only when there is a Savior. The Savior guided everything to the realm of liberation. I completely opened the realm of liberation. Because of that, the motto of 2001 is “May the liberated Parents of Heaven and Earth, and children united as one in mind and body, fulfill the Will with true love, whose subject nature is absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal.” It is about working together. After working together you should report. When you report, look to see whether that which you are reporting was done correctly or incorrectly; if it was a mistake, you should redeem your mistake. You cannot report before making up for that mistake. It is a report, not a prayer. Those who do not have good results to report cannot come to where True Parents are.
