Book 1: True Parents’ Advent and the Era of True Parents
Chapter 2: Section 4: Paragraph 19-30
19 I have to represent 4,000 years of history; that is why I have not been able to sleep comfortably for the past 40 years. I have faced opposition from all people and all nations. During that time I struggled desperately to find out how to overcome that opposition on the levels of the individual, family, tribe, nation, world and cosmos. To overcome those obstacles, I had to take a path completely different from the paths in Satan’s world. While communicating with God, who was with me behind the scenes wherever I went in heaven and on earth, I tore down the walls of Satan’s world one by one. By breaking down all the walls I built a highway from the individual level to the levels of the family, tribe, people, nation, world and all of heaven and earth. These efforts restored human beings to the positions of Adam and Eve before they fell.
Now God can be with us wherever we go. I recovered this position for humankind. Heaven’s world is advancing, and Satan’s world is retreating. Satan cannot interfere with God’s world any longer. Whenever heaven advances, Satan has no choice but to surrender.
20 I broke down all the walls in front of me—eight levels of walls from the individual and family to the nation and beyond. Over the past 40 years I have prepared the path for Adam and Eve to return, so they can move back and forth. Now that path is complete. It is a path that will remain even after I have returned to God.
Numerous religions and nations opposed me, but I did not oppose them. Yet I did not die; I am still alive. Now I have finished everything. Therefore, even if I die now, it doesn’t matter. This is because the truth I have brought will continue to exist. The Principle will remain; it is the teaching that was declared victorious at the trial in God’s court. Even Satan cannot deny it.
21 Adam should complete restoration in his own generation. Since all the issues of restoration must be resolved within True Parents’ generation, you have no idea how busy we are.
That is why we conduct proclamation ceremonies. Through these ceremonies we plant flags to make God the owner. Once we plant a flag, God and True Parents have the authority of dominion over that territory; it no longer belongs to Satan’s domain. That is why, when we returned to Korea after traveling to Russia and America, we made proclamations throughout the nation. By so doing, we drove in posts, to signify that we prepared an environment in which the people of Korea would not oppose us but would welcome us. After we did this, Satan had to retreat.
If people believe these proclamations and come into the realm of these proclamations, then Satan cannot take them away. It is as if a person who formerly lived without a nationality joins a nation with a newly drawn national boundary and lives in accordance with the laws of that new environment; then he or she can belong to its people.
22 A problem would arise in the spirit world as well as on earth if I did not disclose that I am the one who comes into the world with God’s Divine Seal as the True Parent, the Savior, the Messiah and the king of peace, the one long sought by humanity. That is why I made the proclamation as to who I am. That proclamation can be likened to proclaiming a constitution that has already been ratified. Those who are not in accord with it will fall behind, and those who are in accord with it will move forward and remain forever.
I have become the standard for perfection on all levels; my position is above the constitution, just as the constitution is above all other laws. Therefore, I must disclose everything, without hiding anything. I have not done it yet, but by the time I leave earth I should be able to say, “I have finished everything.” I should be able to say that everything I did and all that I connected with in my surroundings had a reason and a purpose for the fulfillment of the Will.
Then, when I go to the spirit world, I should be able to begin taking firm root there. Earth also will unite in partnership with the spirit world, and together they will form the kingdom of peace. What I am saying is serious. I have come this far, pouring out my utmost devotion, in order to transcend the realm of life and death, and to remove death once and for all. I am proclaiming this now for your sake.
23 God is invisible, yet I must be able to attend Him as the True Parent even better than I would attend anyone visible to my physical eyes. I have a responsibility to follow the way of light amid the light, to remove the darkness, and to reach the position where I can liberate all people from the realm of hell. I must erase Satan’s footprints and even his shadow from the realms of the spirit world.
When I have completed my portion of responsibility, God should be able to say, “This is My world, My heaven and My earth.” When there is no distinction between day and night, only brightness 24 hours a day, the sovereignty will belong to God alone, not to Satan. Only after I hand over everything to God can I declare that the indemnity has been paid and liberation and complete freedom have been achieved. Then we will be in the realm where the portion of responsibility is fulfilled.
That realm is the realm of liberation. No longer will there be barriers in the spirit world, such as the barriers between heaven and hell. The steep valleys in the spirit world will be leveled into plains. All people will be able to live with their ancestors in the spirit world as they please. If you call out to your ancestors, they will come to you; and after listening to them, you will be able to follow their guidance. Once I establish this original standard, God should be able to declare, “I have finished everything.” Once I have completed the ideal of creation, it also means that God has fulfilled His portion of responsibility.
The first human beings fell due to their ignorance of the Principle and its laws. Therefore, True Parents must teach humanity about these things and create the realm of oneness. Then peace will dwell in the realm of liberation—the ideal kingdom of heaven on earth and in heaven, the realm of the original homeland. Then the liberation of the fatherland, where everyone attends God, will begin.
24 I have overcome all the obstacles. When I think about what I have done, it seems like a dream. I wonder, how could I have done all this? I never thought that it was I who did it, not even in my dreams. It is God who did it. He prepared everything, inside and out. He set up the entire framework; He trained me and made foundation upon foundation so that I could complete my work. I am saying that heaven toiled much more than we can ever imagine. That is why, whatever happens in my life, I live without complaining.
25 Due to the Fall, human beings lost their original hometown and original fatherland. Yet the planet Earth is our original homeland; and the place where God dwells is our original fatherland.
Early in my life, I already knew how to become a filial son, a patriot, a saint, a divine son and a king. When it comes to the fundamental issues, there was nothing that I did not know. That is why I know how to build the kingdom of heaven on earth and the kingdom of heaven in heaven.
I told you that the era of the Fourth Adam’s realm is approaching. On Chil Pal Jeol (7-8 Day), we took firm root as True Parents. On that basis, on Gu Gu Jeol (9-9 Day) and Sam Shib Jeol (3-10 Day), I proclaimed the realm of liberation. As the True Parent, I have eliminated everything by which Satan made himself the false father, and I have recreated the entire basis for God’s dominion that Satan destroyed. I have thereby completed the restoration of everything. By doing so, I have ushered in the era for building the unified world, the kingdom of heaven on earth based on the ideal of the family.
The original world, the realm which has nothing to do with the Fall, has been empty for thousands of years, awaiting the Fourth Adam. Now, based on the realm of liberation that I established, this realm will be filled all at once. The foundation has been completed for God to be liberated, and even for Satan to receive forgiveness and enter the kingdom of heaven.
I too must be liberated. What liberates me is to rescue the people in the dungeons at the rock bottom of hell and bring them with me to the kingdom of heaven.
26 Despite receiving persecution my entire life, I have always lived for the sake of others. This is how I was able to cover all the levels of opposition, from the individual to the family, tribe, people, nation and world. Not only have I attained perfection as an individual, I also have completed my mission on all eight levels, including the family, tribe, people, nation, world, cosmos and God. I completed all this, which never could be done before, not even during 6,000 years of history. Now that it is finished, the world is no longer in the course of restoration where we must pay indemnity.
Thus, if you invest yourself with absolute faith and absolute love, centering on the realm of heart of the Fourth Adam, you will be elevated accordingly. It is like having a highway that takes you effortlessly to the front gate of the palace. There is nothing to obstruct you. The only questions are your driving skill and whether you have fuel. We are in the era when you can drive wherever you want to go, as long as you can supply the gasoline.
27 God has been leading the providence of salvation not just for one generation but for thousands of years. Biblically speaking, God has been working in history for the restoration of humankind for 6,000 years. Four thousand years is the length of time that the history of restoration was centered on the chosen people of Israel, which did not fully succeed. That period is what I had to restore through indemnity during the last 40 years. I have given Mother all the fortune I accumulated throughout my life. She, in turn, had to live her life accepting that I, her husband, am also her grandfather, her father and her older brother. She has actually lived her life with that standard. This is what makes Mother so wonderful.
28 What is it that True Parents should accomplish in 2007, a jubilee year of the providence? I came to earth representing the incorporeal God. I discovered and revealed all the secrets of heaven, earth and human beings, and brought victory by paying indemnity. Then I passed on my entire victorious foundation to Mother. On this foundation, Mother held a global speaking tour of 180 nations. Afterward, with unity between Cain and Abel, she toured 40 nations. The oneness of the family during these tours was the foundation for the work I did to deal with the providence. All of your families must follow that path.
Consider that God is the first generation, Adam was the second generation, and Cain and Abel in Adam’s family were the third generation. Didn’t God lose the realm of three generations? So I had to win a victory that included the third generation, Cain and Abel, which I did. Mother also triumphed in this, thus bringing victory for Eve’s realm. Accordingly, both True Parents, Father and Mother, are victorious.
29 I did not mind going to prison. When I went to Pyongyang, I already knew whom I would meet, as if the meetings had been prearranged. Jesus had 12 disciples, but when he went to prison they all betrayed him. In my case, when I was imprisoned I actually found 12 disciples and even more. For restoration through indemnity, I had to restore all that was lost.
In the future, where should you build a memorial tower to commemorate me? You should memorialize the places where I experienced prison life. One of those memorials should be at Danbury, where, based on Mother’s unity with me during my incarceration, I proclaimed the realm of ideal oneness between Father and Mother.
30 We, the True Parents, opened a new age by completing, concluding and closing the entire history of the providence of restoration through indemnity. We opened the era of Cheon Il Guk. Now you need to reach out and educate your neighbors and people of every nation, to enable them to unite with the Will of our Heavenly Parent and True Parents. That is the best way to satisfy the debt you owe to God in return for His love and blessings, and to fulfill your mission for humankind.
