Book 1: True Parents’ Advent and the Era of True Parents
Chapter 2: Section 4: True Parents’ Completion of the Providence, Paragraph 11-18
11 You do not understand the difficult circumstances I have faced until now. Ninety-nine out of 100 people would have given up and run away. That is how fearful and serious my position was. However, I did not budge even one inch.
This is because I regarded it as my destiny. Had the path been easy, I am sure that Satan would have taken it first. I went on a path that even Satan did not dare to go. This is how I have expanded my scope from the family to the tribe, people, nation, world and cosmos.
As a true man, I am positioned as the mediator between God and human beings in a world disconnected from God. I am to bring God back to them by building God a highway. On it, God will descend from the level of the cosmos to the world, to nations, peoples, tribes and families. The place where God descends and dwells is the realm of the True Parents. Now I have established a realm that Satan cannot invade.
12 I was not born as a prince of a fabulous kingdom. No one recognized who I was. Few ever imagined that the Lord would return to Korea, a small nation scarred from numerous wars. The Lord of the Second Advent comes at a time when the four realms that emerged as a result of Jesus’ death on the cross—democracy and communism, and Islam and Christianity—are enemies to each other. Their conflicts having reached the world level, the Lord has to deal with them and bring them into unity.
Indeed, this is what I have done. I have finished my part. In order to come this far, I had to deal with many complex situations behind the scenes. They were incomparably more difficult than what a typical family has to deal with.
They were incomparably more difficult than even the ordeals that nations have to deal with. Nevertheless, I worked patiently to deal with them and overcame every challenge I faced along the way.
13 When the Lord comes again, he needs to unite the world that is now divided between the left wing and the right wing. He also must unite the religions of the world. That is why I have been forging unity between the left wing and the right wing, and among religions. Neither the United States government nor the government of the Soviet Union is doing this. The Lord to come needs to fulfill what Jesus was not able to fulfill in his lifetime. Otherwise he cannot turn the world around.
Human history does not proceed randomly; it proceeds hand in hand with God’s providence. Since my coming, the providence and history have advanced side by side. I can testify that God is alive and working in human history. We are now living in a time when we cannot deny the existence of God.
14 Blessed families are in the position of Jesus, and they must restore the nation as Jesus was supposed to do. Israel was divided between the north and the south. It was divided between the northern kingdom, composed of ten tribes, and the southern kingdom, with two tribes. Leah and Rachel should have united; because they were unable to resolve their struggle, the nation was divided into two. Jesus died under similar circumstances, symbolized by the thief on the left and the thief on the right. The two thieves represented Cain and Abel on the world level. Thus, when the Lord returns, he needs to change the situation and bring them into unity. That is how he can establish the realm of victory.
That is why, as the person with the mission of the Lord of the Second Advent, I must gain victory over communism. I had no choice but to become the premier world champion in the fight against communism and bring about its defeat. Furthermore, I must bring unity to democracy and bring unity to the world, even by guiding the United States of America. Also, I must unite the worlds of religion and politics.
15 True Parents are responsible to connect the realms of indirect dominion and direct dominion. The question is how to tear down the walls that Satan has erected around individuals, families, tribes, peoples, nations and the world. God has been working continually to achieve this goal, while Satan has been challenging God and striving to block God’s work. In this way, God and Satan have been confronting each other.
Satan persists in confronting God. So, standing between God and Satan, I have been working to remove Satan. I have to advance the providence to the position where Satan cannot accuse me. That is why I had to go the path of indemnity, which is the human portion of responsibility. The first human beings failed to fulfill their portion of responsibility. Satan understands that their portion became the responsibility of the Messiah. That is why he mobilized all his forces to attack True Parents. All the difficulties we face have come about because we are breaking down his walls around individuals, families, tribes, peoples, nations, the world and the spirit world.
16 People who did good deeds through their devotion to and faith in the major world religions and then went to the spirit world as good spirits have helped the earthly providence according to God’s desire. Until the present time, the only way they could connect to the earth was through religion. However, now True Parents have come to earth. They have fought and triumphed over evil, and they have established God’s tradition from the level of the individual to the family, tribe, nation and world. As a result, we are entering the time of the emancipation of the religious realm.
Now that the scope of True Parents’ victory has reached the world level, in the age inaugurated by the True Parents, religion will disappear. If Adam and Eve had not fallen but become the True Parents of humankind, religion would not have been necessary. If they had fulfilled their responsibility from the beginning, they would have united with heaven as one body. Then, their ideal oneness would have been the basis for all ancestors in heaven to connect with their descendants living on earth whenever they were needed.
I have done everything necessary to restore through indemnity the realm of the people of Israel as a chosen people, the realm of worldwide Christianity as a chosen people, and the realm of the cosmic Unification Church as a chosen people. With that, the age is coming when religion will be liberated from its responsibility. Then the spirit world and the earthly world will connect directly.
Therefore, even those without religious belief can be connected to the spirit world through the realm of the chosen people, which passes through religion. The old era is coming to an end. Thanks to True Parents’ victory, even people who do not believe in religion will be able to grow through the Old Testament Age, New Testament Age and Completed Testament Age, just as people do who are situated within the realms of the major religions. Hence, the time will come when all their ancestors will come down from the spirit world to visit their descendants and support them.
Proclamations of True Parents’ ultimate unity
In 2010, on the 8th day of the 5th month by the heavenly calendar (June 19) at 2:20 a.m. and the 15th day of the 5th month by the heavenly calendar (June 26) at 3:25 a.m., True Parents proclaimed in Las Vegas that they had achieved oneness in mind, oneness in body, oneness in thought and oneness in core with God, vertically, and that they had achieved ultimate unity horizontally. On that foundation, they declared the completion, conclusion and closure of the Old Testament, New Testament and Completed Testament Ages, and the advent of the age in which God is all-immanent, all-transcendent, all-powerful and all-capable.
Then, on the 17th day of the 11th month by the heavenly calendar (December 11) in 2011, True Father announced at Cheon Jeong Gung Palace, “Now that all beings in heaven and on earth are aligned with God the Creator’s original standard of creation that has now been restored, I declare the completion, conclusion and closure of the entire providence and the final victory.” Then he proclaimed, “All is finished!”
On the 17th and 18th days of the 11th month by the heavenly calendar (December 11 and 12) in 2011 at the Ocean Cheon Jeong Gung Palace, True Parents wrote the Proclamation of the Final Cheon Il Guk Victory, “God and True Parents are completely one. God is complete, perfected and fulfilled. Aju! Heaven is here. Congratulations! Sun Myung Moon. Aju!"
Finally, on the 26th day of the 6th month by the heavenly calendar (August 13) in 2012, 21 days before his Holy Ascension on the 17th day of the 7th month (September 3), True Father, during his report prayer to our Heavenly Parent made the final official proclamation of his earthly life, with the following words, “Today, as I have returned the conclusion of the final perfection to You, Father, I know that up to this moment, I have offered my whole life to You. I am spending this time now to bring my life to its conclusion, to bring it to a close with utmost devotion, in accordance with Your Will. May the tribal messiahs be able to fulfill the calling of national representatives. I have accomplished everything for this. I have completed everything. Aju!”
17 Now I am establishing the tradition that no one can match, either mentally or physically. With my mind fixed on heaven and earth, I am making countless conditions of devotion. When my conditions are so sincere that they touch both heaven and earth, Satan cannot invade what I am doing. It is mainly those conditions of devotion that prevent Satan from invading. My conditions enable family members in heaven and all the spirit persons in heaven to build a bridge to earth, and when those in the spirit world come down on that bridge and connect to my foundation, Satan cannot oppose them. This means that I have now laid all the foundations needed to fulfill the Will.
18 Thus far, everyone opposed the path I was taking. America opposed me, the Soviet Union opposed me, China opposed me, Kim Il-sung opposed me, and all others opposed me. Yet I have overcome them all. My mission is to defeat the left-wing communists and completely liberate the people in the communist world. I am working to unite all the people in Satan’s realm and bind all humankind together, based on one standard.
Now there are no barriers for those on this path. There had been all sorts of barriers, but I tore them all down. I now have gone through all eight levels, from the individual to God, so that I can make the environment free of barriers. The unity that I am referring to is unity of the individual, unity of the family, unity of the tribe, unity of the people, unity of the nation, unity of the world, and unity of heaven and earth. By tearing down the walls of Satan’s world and forming an environment of unity, I am trying to recover the original fatherland.
