Chapter 1: The Enthronement and Coronation Ceremonies
Section 1: The Enthronement Ceremony for God's Kingship, Paragraph 15-25
15 On January 13, 2001, True Parents will conduct the Enthronement Ceremony for God's Kingship. We are going to bring God back to His throne. That is the ceremony we will carry out. We have already held two ceremonies for this purpose at the formation and growth stages. The coming ceremony will be at the completion stage. We must establish God's kingship.
I am proud of the fact that we as human beings could do something that God has not been able to do for Himself. We declared the abolition of hell and paradise, and we dealt with other matters that God has not been able to deal with because Satan destroyed His authority as the king. That is why True Parents need to restore God to His original position and recover for Him the world where He has all authority to exercise His power, being immanent in all and present everywhere.
16 Since I declared the abolition of paradise and hell, there is no longer any path of indemnity on the course laid out by True Parents. Now that we are free to build the kingdom of heaven on earth and in heaven, and now that the fallen archangel is gone, God is now the True God and King who can return to His original place on His throne.
God could not do this by Himself. The false parent expelled Him from His position; therefore according to the principle of indemnity, it has to be the True Parents who bring God back to His throne. If they do not do it, God can never assume the throne.
It is we human beings who must bring God to His throne. That we can now do so is mainly because the Savior, the True Parents, established their authority to give the Blessing to us on earth and in heaven through God's love, life and lineage. The Blessing empowers us to establish all the new traditions of God's nation. Those who stand in the realm of God's blessing are tied directly to God by bloodline and have no ties with Satan. It was Satan, the false parent of humankind, who turned everything upside down; but now True Parents have removed Satan and abolished hell and paradise, so that now only the kingdom of heaven can remain. On this foundation, we shall enthrone God at the center of His kingdom. This is the Enthronement Ceremony for God's Kingship.
17 Heavenly Father, today, January 1, 2001, the age of the night has ended and we are heading toward the year 3000 in the age of day. In the name of True Parents, I sincerely desire that we can establish the sovereignty of love under the Great Sovereign of Heaven and Earth. I sincerely desire that we can realize the independence of Your fatherland, where everyone acts out of a heart of love without any reservations, and where everyone has the authority of freedom in both the vertical and horizontal realms.
May You guide all humankind to know the highway that we have built to take them straight to heaven, so that they can be active and advance, with minds that are free and with bodies united with their minds, and with the authority of people who have autonomy to be family kings and queens, and kings and queens of the nations and the cosmos, while in attendance of the Parents of Heaven and Earth. In the name of True Parents, I proclaim our hope and desire that You will establish Your eternal reign of peace.
18 With the Enthronement Ceremony for God's Kingship, we are ushering in the age when God can exercise His authority and power in all immanence and omnipresence. We are advancing toward the age when human beings as autonomous owners can complete building God's kingdom on earth, which He has long desired. For this, we have mobilized the spirits in all the realms of all the religions. Especially since True Parents came with the authority of autonomous owners, we now will welcome the grand age of victory and liberation, when the earthly world and the heavenly realms will march forward in step. Beginning in January 2001, families that received the Blessing on earth and in heaven must unite in heart and establish a firm foundation to take root on earth. To this end, those in the heavenly realms need to inherit the positions of the elder son, the parents, and the kings based on Adam's foundation on earth, and restore to the younger son the authority of the elder son. Through this, we will usher in the revolutionary era when the authority of the younger son can replace the authority of the elder son in heaven and on earth.
The Enthronement Ceremony for God's Kingship and His liberation
The Enthronement Ceremony for God's Kingship returned to God everything that He had lost in the beginning due to the Fall of the first human ancestors. It was a rite to restore to God the cosmos that had come under Satan's possession and to announce that God had recovered His kingship. This ceremony marked the moment that released God from His bitter sorrow over the Human Fall by claiming back for Him both earth and heaven, the two worlds that had fallen into Satan's hands. For True Parents, who had completely invested their entire lives for the sake of liberating God and humankind, it was the culmination of their victories.
The Enthronement Ceremony for God's Kingship marked the start of the 13-year course toward the Foundation Day of Cheon Il Guk, the day for embarking on the realization of God's ideal of creation. During the first days of that 13-year period, True Parents proclaimed four major articles of heaven’s constitution: the requirement to preserve the pure lineage, the prohibition against violating people's hearts, the prohibition against misusing public funds, and a mandate to establish exemplary true families. These are the fundamental laws and goals that citizens of God's kingdom should uphold to complete Cheon Il Guk in the new era.
19 It is of the utmost importance that blessed families protect God's kingship. Your primary responsibility as blessed central families is to guard His kingship. Hence, you should take the greatest pride in having supported the Enthronement Ceremony for God's Kingship. And now that God is enthroned, supporting His throne should be your number one aim and your supreme goal in life. You should praise God's sovereignty and testify to it. Resolve to invest everything to uphold it. Remember always that it must be your absolute, sole, unchanging and eternal determination to protect and expand His kingship. You blessed families must protect His kingship throughout your lives.
20 You need to carry the absolute sovereignty of God in your hearts. God's sovereignty must be the foremost principle of your lives. This sovereignty begins from one individual --the perfected Adam -and connects to the family, tribe, people, nation and the whole world. Even all creation longs to be connected to the family of the perfected Adam. You must understand and believe in this principle. You should exalt God's sovereignty more than anything in the world.
However, until now, God could not rejoice in His sovereignty, but instead had to undertake the sorrowful and painful task of leading the providence of restoration. In the Last Days the responsibility of religions, nations, the Messiah and the True Parents is to bring God back to His original position and status. God's exercise of His sovereignty is the central point for redeeming all beings.
Until now God was unable to assume His sovereignty, and for that reason He could not be the absolute, almighty God. Now, however, God has reclaimed His sovereignty. Through the Enthronement Ceremony for God's Kingship, God has become the center of all creation. Even the tiniest, seemingly insignificant creature was created by the one and only God.
After the Human Fall, God lost His throne. But now He has been returned to that original position. This was possible thanks to all the families who received the Blessing. Therefore, you ought to carry with you the thought of God's absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal sovereignty.
21 Even God must be liberated. He longs for liberation, yet liberation has eluded Him. Why? It is because of Adam and Eve. They followed the false parent and took a path opposite to their original path. So, we must now follow the right path, be liberated, and finally enthrone God as the King. The false parents turned the cosmos upside down with their false lineage, but I have set it straight. Formerly, sinners were trapped in hell's deep hole, but I filled that hole. We gave the marriage Blessing not only to saints but also to murderers. We gave the Blessing not only to Unification Church members but also to members of religions that opposed us. We granted them entry into the Unification Realm, the realm of liberation, linking all of them together even with the True Children and all saints by giving them all the same Blessing.
22 We, as True Parents, must liberate God. God could not become the Parent of humankind, and we must secure His position as the Parent. Also, God was unable to become the Teacher or the Owner of humankind, so we must secure His positions as the Teacher and the Owner. Further, we must make sure that He can settle on this earth in His hometown, in His fatherland. To this end, we conducted the Enthronement Ceremony for God's Kingship.
23 Do you think that we as True Parents could hold the Enthronement Ceremony for God's Kingship any way we wanted to? We needed to know about the protocols of God's kingdom and had to carry out the ceremony in the proper manner. Otherwise, we could not have conducted it. The ceremony was held in accordance with the detailed protocols of God's kingdom for an enthronement ceremony. As a result, spirits who had been like prisoners in the spirit world, whose minds and bodies were disunited, were finally liberated. Now they are free to come and go between heaven and earth.
24 Only the True Parents can liberate God. Since the false parents ruined everything, it is up to us as True Parents to straighten everything out. We now have completed everything we needed to do. We offered the Enthronement Ceremony for God's Kingship. What else is left to do? We have done everything humanly possible on earth. We gave the Blessing to 400 million couples to connect people to God's lineage and create a world in which all people are members of His family.
25 Who will take responsibility for the wretched, pathetic history of humankind? No one who remains in ignorance can take responsibility. The person who must take responsibility is the one who knows what to do. The surgeon who holds the scalpel and all the surgical tools in the operating room is the one who must take responsibility for saving his patient's life, even at the risk of exposing himself to a fatal illness. True Parents are like that surgeon.
Individuals, families, nations, and heaven and earth are all trapped in hell, in the realm of the Fall. Who will liberate them? The Lord has returned as the True Parents. They established true kingship over the family, tribe, people and nation before finally holding the Enthronement Ceremony for God's Kingship.
