Section 1. Opening the Age of Cheon Il Guk
Cheon Il Guk is the abbreviation of Cheonju Pyeonghwa Tongil Guk (Cosmic Nation of Peace and Unity). On January 13, 2001, on the basis of their authority gained through victory in the history of restoration through indemnity, True Parents held the Enthronement Ceremony for God's Kingship. On October 3 of that same year, on the occasion of the Foundation Day of the Nation of the Unified World, they spoke about the significance of Cheon Il Guk.
Cheon Il Guk is God's nation, the fruit of True Parents' vision of one family under God, for which they have devoted their entire lives. True Parents explained that Cheon Il Guk is “the nation where two persons become one.” It is the ideal world of interdependence, mutual prosperity and universally shared values, where all people live as brothers and sisters attending God as the vertical True Parent and the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind as the horizontal True Parents.
1 Have you ever heard of the Cosmic Nation of Peace and Unity? Have you ever heard that there is a nation of God? I'm asking whether you have heard about heaven on earth, the ideal world and the utopia for which God longs. No one has ever heard these words before, but everyone longs for such a nation. It is not a delusion. It is reality. Men and women, young and old, regardless of background, place and time, whether living in the physical world or the spiritual world, will all agree that the nation of peace, the nation longed for by God, is nothing other than the Cosmic Nation of Peace and Unity, Cheon Il Guk. Who can bring this nation to fruition? God created us as His sons and daughters. Thus, we are the ones who are responsible to realize this nation. When this is done, the country will belong not only to God but to His sons and daughters. It will be a nation that the sons and daughters can be proud of for eternity with God at the center. It is also the ideal nation of God's dream. In that nation, the individual, family, tribe, people, nation and world can truly be happy.
2 Before we die, we must unite our mind and body. The wife must come to love God more than she loves her husband, and the husband must love God more than he loves his wife. You must also become a family that can love God's sons and daughters just as God loves them. Families like that come together to form a tribe and such tribes come together to form a nation. Then these nations come together to form the world, and the world unites to form heaven and earth, the Cosmic Nation of Peace and Unity. God will be the ruler of that nation, we will be His subjects, and the whole world will be its territory.
3 All of you need to enter the Cosmic Nation of Peace and Unity. This nation has no ties to Satan. All ties with Satan must be cut off and you have to stand in the position of a messiah. You must stand in the position of individual, family, tribal and national messiah. To live in this liberated heavenly nation, mind and body need to become one. Through achieving such oneness in heart, the new cosmic nation on earth, the nation of Cheon Il Guk, becomes my nation. After the nation of the individual, there is the nation of the husband and wife. In this nation, husband and wife need to become one based on their mind and body having become one. You as an individual must be united, and you and your spouse have to be united. This is the distinctive standard by which you can represent the perfected Blessing. This distinctive standard is the realm of the Blessing that encompasses both parent and child. It is the realm of the Blessing of heaven and of earth.
4 The Cosmic Nation of Peace and Unity is where we can go beyond national boundaries and expand to the world stage. After resolving everything through the law of indemnity, Cheon Il Guk is the nation that leads us to the kingdom of heaven. It is the united nation of the heavenly and earthly worlds. The heavenly and earthly worlds are two. Cheon Il Guk is the nation where these two become one. How can they become one? Through true love. What kind of peace does Cheon Il Guk embody? It is the peace that embraces heaven and earth.
5 Centering on the original, innate love of God, I was able to love even Satan and lay a solid foundation to enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, Satan has no choice but to bless me, saying, “You are headed to the world of liberation. Your wishes shall absolutely be fulfilled. Wherever you go, your wishes shall be granted, and you shall have everything you desire.” When the words, “The world is now liberated in the name of God, the True Parents and the True Family,” are uttered, he will say, “Amen!” Spring has come. No matter how much the snow has piled up, no matter how thick the ice is, now that spring has come everything will melt. Seeds must be sown in the spring. The seeds of goodness must be planted to the ends of the earth, displacing the seeds of evil planted by Satan. The family is the seed of goodness. Satan planted only the seeds of the fallen Adam and Eve. We must now plant the seeds of the new family.
6 The Cosmic Nation of Peace and Unity is not a nation meant solely for the Korean people. It is God's desire to liberate all humankind, including hundreds of billions of ancestors in the spirit world, and even the world of angels. Therefore, even though the road that leads to this is arduous and miserable, we must travel it. We must invest with the heart of a parent, of a husband or wife, of an elder sibling or a younger sibling who has lost the person they love the most. We must go forward, investing and forgetting that we have invested. Whoever lives like this, even if someone tells them not to, will naturally end up in heaven.
7 The reason I have received so much persecution is because I have no nation. This is also the reason God has undergone so much persecution. Therefore, I am always thinking about how to find the nation, the homeland that is God's. This is why I perform the mass marriage ceremonies, bringing together all five races of the world, even as the world curses me. Through this, we are creating one united tribe and people throughout the world. Do you know how difficult this is? But isn't the work that the incorporeal God must do to bring the world to this point even more difficult? The work I am doing is less difficult than God's. This is why I said I would find a nation. This is why I have walked this path.
8 Now all I have to do is organize a movement that can establish a new family, a new tribe and a new nation. If I am able to accomplish this, not only Korea but also the United Nations and the whole world will come to follow me and understand the direction they need to take. The formation of the new family, a family that Satan has not defiled, starts with True Parents.
The mission that remains is to expand the sanctified, unfallen nation. This is re-creation. God cannot give His love where the traces of Satan's filthy love remain. You must fulfill your mission. Only then can you go to the heavenly nation and restore your honor as the perfected descendant of Adam. The Israelites went through the 40-year wilderness course but could not build the homeland. However, I have lived through the 40-year wilderness course on the worldwide level and have re-created the people of Israel, making it possible to build the world-level kingdom.
9 Moses was 80 years old when he sought the hometown and nation in preparation for the age of Jesus. The failures that came about then are being restored centering on the blessed families. This is why there was a 40-year course to restore Canaan centering on the blessed families. It refers to the period when heaven and earth are to become one.
In the blessed families' course of establishing Canaan, heaven and earth were turned upside down. To create one people, I had the blessed families unite with one another in Jardim, Brazil. Now that they have become one, doing the work to settle with one mind and one body, even with heaven and earth upside down, they will be able to return to Canaan without any resistance. Because they have completed these preparations, they are passing over the boundary line and landing in a new dimension.
Moses sought the hometown and nation on the level of a people. He was unable to accomplish that. But today, on my 80th birthday, I have overcome all impediments and realized the completion of the ideal family and the kingdom of heaven on earth and in heaven.
10 Christianity did not unite after World War II and, centered on the United States, even went so far as to chase me away. We came to be just like the Israelites, cast out into the wilderness for 40 years. Centering on the 4,300 years of Korean history, the course to establish Canaan and to complete the kingdom of heaven on earth and in heaven was prolonged. To finish this, the First, Second and Third Israels and the Old, New and Completed Testament Ages must be brought to a conclusion. Cheon Il Guk can begin only if this is completed and it stands on the foundation of settlement.
11 The term Cheon Il Guk came into existence thanks to True Parents. After we successfully completed God's kingship, we passed through the Settlement in the Realm of Life of the Parents of Heaven and Earth, and then the gatherings for the Harmony and Unity of Heaven and Earth, and finally the Ascension (Seunghwa) Ceremonies for Peace, Unification and the Liberation of Heaven and Earth. With these completed, a new nation was necessary. True Parents declared Cheon Il Guk. The goal of the Family Pledge is to complete Cheon Il Guk. We must fulfill the Family Pledge for the sake of our mothers, our fathers, our siblings, our nation, our world, and the saints and sages and the entire heavenly world. The conclusion is simple. Why did we hold the Enthronement Ceremony for God's Kingship? We did it for Cheon Il Guk. Why did we hold the rallies for the Settlement in the Realm of Life of the Parents of Heaven and Earth? We did it so that the citizens of Cheon Il Guk can settle and live. Right now, all citizens of heaven and earth are making a resolution. Together they are setting conditions for a united world from the level of the individual resolution through all eight stages. On the worldwide level they are making resolutions to gain success, focusing on a common purpose.
