The plaque of recognition
On May 30, 1999, True Parents completed the "Rally for the Globalization of the True Family" in 80 cities around the world and held the "Ceremony for the Global Proclamation and Celebration of True Parents' Victory in the East and West" at the holy ground at Belvedere in Tarrytown, New York. Then, after finishing the pledge service on the 37th Day of All True Things on June 14 at the Han-nam-dong house, they held the Ceremony for Proclaiming and Celebrating True Parents' Cosmic Victory at the Seoul Olympic Gymnastics Arena. This was done to proclaim that True Parents had completed their mission through True Mother's victory in the 80-city speaking tour.
On that day, True Father gave True Mother a plaque proclaiming and celebrating True Parents' cosmic victory. The plaque declared that True Mother, who came with the mission of the True Mother of humankind, had fulfilled the mission of true child, true wife and True Parent after True Parents' Holy Wedding in 1960 and, through her speaking tour, had bequeathed to all people the textbook of True Parents' life course.
6 You are God's original child, with God's special mission. You are the fruit of the history of the providence of restoration who came to earth with the mission of the True Mother of humankind. Looking only upon heaven, you won a victory over the suffering course of the providence of restoration and established the eternal tradition with absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience. After True Parents' holy wedding in 1960, you completed the mission of true child before heaven, the mission of true wife before your husband, and the mission of true parent before your children.
God's providence of restoration and True Parents' holy work of restoration culminated in victory in 1999, and in that year you bequeathed to all people the textbook of True Parents' life course in 80 cities around the world through the "Rally for the Globalization of the True Family." I, as the Adam of original creation and as True Father of humanity, give you this plaque to celebrate your achievement through such pain, to thank heaven and to praise your record in front of all descendants in heaven and on earth.
7 I held a public ceremony to recognize True Mother's achievement. She is worthy of recognition by both the Unification Church and the Creator. You have to say, "There is our Mother! She is the same as Father!" I have been the right side of God, but now I have set up Mother as the left side of God. Therefore, we can enter the era of liberation through 7-1 Day, 7-8 Day, 7-9 Day and 7-10 Day. I was able to declare the completion of the age of indemnity, centered on the numbers 7 and 10. God thus far has appeared symbolically. However, now God appears in His embodiment—True Father, and True Mother has appeared as his partner. Therefore, the substantial kingdom of heaven on earth and in heaven can be established.
You also must become perfected women and men who achieve oneness in heart, oneness in body and oneness in thought, and inherit the true love, true life and true lineage of heaven's nation. As substantial parents, you must give birth to sons and daughters and complete our family. If you do not complete our family, you will not be able to enter the kingdom of heaven. Instead, when you arrive in the spirit world, it will take you a long time to make up for that which you did not accomplish on earth, maybe even through harsh affliction and suffering. Without going through such a course substantially, you cannot enter heaven.
8 Through the "Rally for the Advancement of the Globalization of the True Family" in 80 cities around the world, True Mother won a supreme victory over the highest level of Satan's world. She entered into this position based upon the recognition by God, Satan and all people that she had fulfilled her responsibility as the True Mother. Starting with Christianity, she has gone beyond the realm of religion and has achieved victory. She can therefore occupy and act from the precious position of Eve whose mistake in front of Adam has been restored. I will proclaim this to heaven and earth. Therefore, I will publicly recognize Mother's achievement at the "Ceremony for Proclaiming and Celebrating True Parents' Cosmic Victory." From now on, Mother stands in a position equal to my own. The age of the equality of man and woman has come. It is the age of the equality of man and woman based on love. Now is the time when we have to unite women and teach men about this.
9 Because it was a crucial time for Mother to fulfill her responsibility, Mother went around the world holding the "Rally for the Advancement of the Globalization of the True Family." In China it seemed it would be impossible to hold the rally, but heaven worked to make it happen. Mother made various conditions by which heaven could not but help us. Mother established the condition through the 80-city speaking tour to make even Satan surrender to God, True Parents and humankind. Therefore we are holding a ceremony honoring this victory; it is the "Ceremony for Proclaiming and Celebrating True Parents' Cosmic Victory."
10 What is the meaning of my giving Mother a plaque of recognition on June 14, 1999? Throughout history the Eves of three ages sacrificed the Adams from those ages. But at this time Mother set the conditions to qualify as the Mother of three ages. She rose to the position where she could receive heaven's blessing on an equal footing with Father. Without the completion of the four-position foundation and three object partner purpose, it is impossible to enter heaven. To be the Lord at His Second Advent implies the completion of the Completed Testament Age, and the completion of the Completed Testament Age implies standing in the position of completely realizing God's ideal of creation. So a command from the Returning Lord is like one from the perfected Adam, or from Jesus, standing on the foundation of his nation.
Up to now the internal realm of religion has been unable to win over the external world controlled by Satan. But the Returning Lord has achieved a historic, cosmic victory over this world. And you inherited that victory. You cannot be qualified to enter heaven unless you stand in the position of the Lord's partners, representing the people, the nation and the world.
Section 4. Workshops and Sisterhood Ceremonies for 160,000 Japanese Women
True Father gave a Special Workshop for Japanese Woman Leaders in Kodiak, Alaska, starting August 9, 1993. Between then and November 20, 1994, he led more than 70 of these workshops at locations such as East Garden in New York, the International Training Center on Jeju Island, and the Central Training Center in Guri, Korea. A total of 160,000 Japanese woman leaders participated. During that period, True Father gave guidance on the role of women in the restoration of Japan, and on the mission and responsibility of Japan as the mother nation. Accommodations were not always comfortable for the women. For the 25th workshop, 4,800 women stayed at a facility designed to accommodate less than 1,000.
1 True Parents do not work for the Unification Church; they work for the world, for the cosmos and for God. This means that the realm of the partner will always appear. No matter how hard the opponent has tried to erase me, God's protection has enabled me to expand such that one day I will stand on the peak of the cosmos. Because God exists, this will surely happen.
I will go straight up, not in a zigzag. Through fulfilling a 40-year course, I stand on the substantial foundation to restore 4,000 years of history. That milestone is conveyed in the declaration "True Parents and the Completed Testament Age." These are not just words; they must be extended to a worldwide foundation. Just because I have proclaimed True Parents and the Completed Testament Age, can I say, "I am the True Parent, so everybody must obey me absolutely"? No. At the right time, I must teach things that are more heavenly and mysterious.
For the first time I am teaching Japanese women, and I am teaching remarkable things that I have never taught before, not even to my relatives or to Korean women. At the Special Workshop for Japanese Woman Leaders, I am connecting the mother nation with the world by teaching Japanese women the best things from the national, continental and world levels.
2 With 50,000 people having already participated, the special workshops are continuing. This is special training. You are not ordinary women; you are special Japanese women. People who are here for the first time might think the title of the workshop strange, saying, "I came here for the first time. What is special training?" It is normal to think it strange if it is your first time, but it is also the first time that I have taught like this.
It has been 40 years since 1954, when the church started in Korea. During this period I have done what many have done, trained lecturers and published books to educate the public, but there has been no workshop in history that gathered a total of 50,000 Japanese women. This has never happened in the history of Japan or the world.
3 In the United Kingdom, Catholicism and Protestantism are fighting. We have to digest this situation by having Japan, the Eve nation, stand in a similar situation. Japan has two heterogeneous Korean associations in the position of children: Chongryon, made up of those with ties to North Korea, and Mindan, those with ties to South Korea. They are like conflicting twins, and the Eve nation, Japan, its people and its government think badly of them. In order to fulfill its responsibility as the Eve nation, Japan has to give rebirth to these twins and unite them. The time has come for this, so before finishing the Jeju Island workshop I asked the Japanese women at the workshop to take action to unite Chongryon and Mindan.
4 Now is the time to set up international ties based on blessed families. You have to be united with Japanese families because Japan is the nation representing the women of the world. Japan and Korea have to unite. Women of the Republic of Korea are the elder daughters. Japanese women are the younger daughters and need to inherit the tradition of the elder daughter.
Yu Gwan-sun is the only one who left her name as a fervent patriot during the period of the independence movement. Yu Gwan-sun is the representative Korean woman, so Japanese women have to follow her tradition in order to meet Mother. In order for Japan to meet Mother, Mindan and Chongryon must come into unity. Perez and Zerah fought each other in the womb of Tamar, who stood in the position of mother. Japanese women, who represent the mother, have to unite them. They then have to achieve the unification of North and South Korea.
When Korean women and Japanese women, elder sisters and younger sisters, are united in the course of restoration centering on True Mother, they create a one-way street. Being united like this, Japanese sisters need to lead Japan, Asia and the world. It is an honor to participate in such an inspiring age and follow the heavenly call.
5 We need to have 20,000 churches in Japan. Our church has educated so many people, but had no foundation for faith education. So all the prepared people heaven sent just passed by. Those were the people capable of affecting the life or death of Japan. They all could have figured importantly in reviving the church, but we lost them, so I needed to be personally involved in the work. This victory cannot be achieved by putting men in front. Instead, women have to be in front to lead. Men have become just bystanders. Therefore, I planned this Special Workshop for 160,000 Japanese Women. There were many benefits. This workshop was not planned in an ordinary manner. I had to take extraordinary measures to produce this special workshop for 160,000 women.
