Chil Pal Jeol (7-8 Day), the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath of the Parents of Heaven and Earth
7 Heavenly Father, You lost all the cultures of the East and the West. You lost the land of the fatherland which, based on the unification of North and South Korea, should have been the central nation of all nations of the world. We, Your people, face a situation where we had to be divided into two, although we should have all received the Blessing to become heaven's extended family.
Unification Church members understand the fact, derived from history, that we had to once again go through a course of 40 years to rectify the division and conflicts between the ideologies of communism and democracy. That 40-year period represented 4,000 years of providential history. Yet no one knew Your sorrow and pain, Heavenly Father, about this period during which Satan exercised his sovereign power by collaborating with the people of his world to cause Christianity and Christian nations, and religions and people of religion and faith, to attack Your Will and the True Parents who had come.
Heavenly Father, You have been pioneering this path alone, alone, utterly alone. Still, under Your guidance I have fought to prepare a haven of Sabbath rest for You. Struggling during that 40-year history I brought victory to You on every level, by making havens where You can rest in individuals, havens where You can rest with husbands and wives, havens where You can rest in the tribe, the nation, the world and the cosmos. I have been fighting to make the creation into the ideal environment where You can dwell and freely act as You will. Now I have surmounted every rugged hill. Therefore, today, centering on True Parents, we can welcome the amazing age when we can proclaim the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath.
8 Heavenly Father, on this day, Your Son being 77 years old, we are at a focal point that connects 8 instances of the number 7: my age of 77, 1997, the 7th month, the 7th day of the month, at 7 minutes and 7 seconds past 7 o'clock. Thus we can go over the number 7 and connect to the number 8, the number of a new start—the start of the year of the Sabbath.
Because of this, all Unification families are now able to attend God by virtue of being members of the family of True Parents, who have inherited the tradition of love and the authority of heaven, and who now enable God to rest on the national level, the world level and the cosmic level. We must connect to God and True Parents' foundation of Sabbath rest on which they can come and go freely everywhere from the family all the way to the cosmos. We can accomplish this by working to welcome the time when we cross these boundaries and establish the royal sovereignty of the one kingdom of heaven on earth and in heaven, where we achieve oneness with God.
9 Heavenly Father, now the time has come when the stains of the sorrowful tears that flowed from the family of True Parents will disappear. Thus seeking for Your liberation, I proclaim in the name of True Parents the dawning of the age in which there will be no hindrance in the comings and goings of True Parents and their church family with all Your beloved children, Your beloved nations, beloved world and beloved cosmos. Centering on True Parents, all humankind will reach the highest summit where everyone can freely travel and enjoy the privileges that You bestowed upon them according to the ideal of creation. I proclaim that in this way You will be liberated everywhere and all the grievances in Your heart will be eradicated. Thus, I sincerely beseech that You will accept these offerings that we make to You. May You receive in Your heart this hour when we are making this proclamation of the Realm of Cosmic Liberation of the Parents of Heaven and Earth. May You proclaim this from heaven. May You raise high the flag of victory in the united realm of the earthly world and the heavenly world.
10 God lost the home of His peaceful rest. To seek for the ideal family in the fallen world is to seek the home of God's peaceful rest. What is the focal point to establish this home? It is a true family, which can be formed by true parents and true children, centered on true love.
That is why I am saying the family is the center of everything. Centered on the family, we should establish the clan. You Unification Church members must become clan messiahs and tribal messiahs. In the family, you should become family messiahs. When you become family messiahs and tribal messiahs and then form a nation, you will become national messiahs and eventually world messiahs. From there the kingdom of heaven on earth is established.
Sabbath means that God is able to rest on any level—from the individual to any level, anywhere in the physical world, even in heaven. When the family is the place of His rest, everyone in it—husband, wife, sons and daughters—all attend God and rejoice together.
11 Heaven had us proclaim the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath based on the foundation of the world-level Blessings of the 30,000, 360,000 and 3.6 million couples. Therefore, we could give the Blessing to 36 million and then 360 million couples. The 360 Million Couples Blessing was an important milestone. Now that we have climbed over this mountain, all people of the world can become one family. Adam's family lost the Blessing; they were unable to fulfill it. Thus, people were unable to accomplish it in the nation and in the world. However, we brought victory at every level—from the family, to the nation and the world centered on True Parents—and for the first time all humankind is able to enter the realm of liberation.
What is important here is that we are welcoming the age of the global family, and we are entering the age when families throughout the world can represent heaven and earth. Because True Parents have been victorious individually and triumphed over Satan's world in the realms of the family, tribe, people, nation and world, heaven stands in the domain of freedom. Hence, the day when the Blessing can be freely given, in villages and nations, is dawning before our eyes.
Fulfillment of the Completed Testament Age for Beginning God's Kingdom in Heaven and on Earth
12 In front of True Parents, America did not stand as the elder son. In fact, America was like a prodigal son, one of the nations that opposed us the most. But we restored the authority of the elder son to America by recovering for Great Britain and America the positions they had held, based on their victory in the Second World War. Because of this, the True Parents and the elder son became one.
On this foundation True Mother and I embarked on the Speaking Tour for the Global Expansion of True Families. We dispatched the saints and others from the spirit world, designating their missions and posts on earth. We did this under our authority as the True Parents. By mobilizing all these spirits—at a time when Korea was becoming distant from the Will, Japan was becoming distant from the Will and America was still far away from the stage when it could fulfill the Will we conducted the International Blessing Ceremony of 360 Million Couples on February 7, 1999. In this way, we took responsibility for all these nations.
True Parents directly took responsibility for all the failures of the spirit world and the chosen nations on earth. We solidified and made secure the positions of Korea, Japan and America. This was done through the International Blessing we conducted on February 7, 1999. Then, in order to expand the foundation of our settlement on the world level, I carried out an eight-city speaking tour in Korea. After that, Mother took responsibility to continue the speaking tour in Japan and America. She delivered speeches in 16 cities in Japan, 24 cities in America, and now she has embarked on a tour of 80 cities in various parts of the world.
13 True Parents were the first people to shoulder and accomplish the responsibility for all the failures in the parent-child relationship between God and human beings. For the first time in history, we also took responsibility for what Christianity and even God could not do, which was to prepare the foundation for God to be present on earth. Through the victories of Korea, Japan and the United States, and based on the authority of the elder son, we, as the True Parents, took responsibility for what the Christian cultural sphere could not fulfill in 1945, as well as for all its failures during our 40-year wilderness course on the way to Canaan, up to the present day.
After taking full responsibility and assuming full authority, we were determined to resolve all unsettled matters in history and bring settlement for God on earth. For this, we decided to launch True Mother's Speaking Tour for the Global Expansion of True Families in 34 nations. The tour includes 33 nations in the Cain cultural sphere representing Jesus' 33 years of life. Including Korea makes it 34 nations. The purpose of the tour is to bring God's settlement on earth, to establish Him throughout the world. With this tour we can clear up all the setbacks that occurred during the 34 years when Jesus should have recovered the nation and gone on to the world. It is time to lay our foundation throughout the world.
