Section 4: The Path to the Settlement of Cheon Il Guk, Paragraph 29
A world that attends God
Were there scrolls as wide as the skies and ink as vast as the oceans, they could not record all the teachings and life achievements of True Parents. True Parents found the new expression of the Word, the Divine Principle, and prepared the start of the providence before their Holy Wedding. And after their Holy Wedding they worked to complete the way of restoration before the Cheon Il Guk Foundation Day; Finally they were able to restore and return to God all that had been lost since the Fall at the beginning of human history. After entering the Era After the Coming of Heaven, on the occasion of the Foundation Day of Cheon Il Guk, they proclaimed a new heaven and earth. Overcoming suffering beyond description, they perfected, concluded and completed the providence of restoration.
Since Foundation Day, True Father in the heavenly world and True Mother on earth have been working hard to bring about the settlement of Cheon Il Guk on this earth through activities such as compiling the Cheon Il Guk scriptures, enacting the Cheon Il Guk Constitution, raising up globally equipped leaders, and calling forth new tribal messiah activities.
The achievements and vision of peace that True Parents established are the foundation stones for one world of peace beyond nations. The words of truth that they bequeathed to humanity trace the path of new life that clarify the way of God, humanity and the cosmos. The course of true love that they showed during their lives is the model for filial children, loyal patriots, saints and divine sons and daughters. As the bright sun and moon of Cheon Il Guk, True Parents cast eternal light upon the ideal world of creation that attends God.
24 With absolute faith, you blessed children of the global Unificationist family must receive instruction on the traditions that the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind lived, and then fulfill the tribal messiah mission. After completing this responsibility in the tribe, the society, nation and world, you will embrace all humanity as the people of Cheon Il Guk. This is the hope of the Heavenly Parent and the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind. This is the way that you who are living in this age will be able to stand, without shame, in the position of ancestors to future generations.
After 6,000 years, our Heavenly Parent and the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind completed, concluded and consummated the providential history of restoration through indemnity and opened a new era and new history of Cheon Il Guk. The founding of Cheon Il Guk, which has been the hope of the Heavenly Parent and the desire of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind, has been accomplished.
How will you thank and welcome our Heavenly Parent and the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind? Do you understand the great significance that God places upon you by installing you as the ancestors of Cheon Il Guk? You have the responsibility to testify to True Parents. You have to make this nation and all the people of the world understand that True Parents have come to this earth, proclaimed the words of life, and opened Cheon Il Guk. You must promise that without fail you will open the kingdom of heaven on earth and the kingdom of heaven in heaven in front of the Heavenly Parent and the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind. The mission and responsibility of those living in the present age is to invest all we have to advance along this road without stopping, keeping an attitude of life-or-death determination.
25 Our pride, joy and happiness are meaningless without True Parents. The hope of blessed families is the establishment of the kingdom of heaven on earth, where we live together with and attend God and True Parents. If we are not able to do that in our age, then our descendants will have to do it. It is the responsibility of we who are parents to make sure that day will come with certainty to this earth. The Unification movement must absolutely accomplish the Will together with True Parents. Accordingly, I sincerely hope that we ourselves and our families become the ones in whom future generations will take pride. We already stepped forward and pledged our hearts. We must work to completely realize, in this age, the Will of heaven that Father worked to accomplish.
26 Even if Father goes to bed late, he rises early in the morning and prays seriously. Even if the wind is blowing or if it is raining, night and day he is praying for you, the children of the Unification Church. When I see the face of Father meditating deeply on how to fulfill God's Will, I think he is someone whom God cannot help but love. I hope that you empower yourselves as much as you can with the Divine Principle. I hope that you can be unchanging in a world of heart that is firmly connected, not in a master- servant relationship, but in a father-son relationship. When you are suffering, please think about True Father.
27 Since the start of human history, all human beings have sought a world of peace and happiness. However, that ideal world was never realized. The True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind discovered and resolved the fundamental problems in providential history. For his 90 years of life, Father held on to heavens providence and worked globally.
True Father designated the 13th day of the first month in 2013 as Foundation Day, and for the 12 years before his Holy Ascension he completely invested himself for this cause. First of all he established the position of Heavenly Parent. True Father became a beacon of hope for a world that is still wandering through a miserable history of suffering and war. To accomplish this on the spiritual level he led a religious group through God's spirit and truth, and externally he developed many activities as expressions of love.
28 My life has been like an ocean. The ocean can generously embrace and unite with the sky and resemble its color. It is in the lowest place, where it accepts all the water of the world. The ocean embraces everything and conceives all life. In the ocean all varieties of living things are born and raised in abundance. Its tides ebb and flow in response to the pull of the moon and the changing seasons. It responds to the rays of the sun, creates water vapor and influences the weather. A calm ocean is peaceful on the surface, but deep inside enormous currents that move the ocean are constantly surging. When waves of a tsunami rage, they can swallow everything.
People cannot see the whirlpool beneath the surface, heaven's providence has surged like a typhoon, and my life has unfolded in the midst of it. There are so many circumstances that cannot be spoken of, which only I understand from the center of the providence. Crossing over that whirlpool, not allowing it to pull me down, I joined Father in the work to complete the providential history of restoration.
29 Heavenly Parent, You raised me as your only begotten Daughter, and You protected me throughout countless adversities and hardships until I came to the position of True Parent. You are the only one who knows and remembers the circumstances and countless challenges that I had to overcome at each twist and turn of this historic course as a True Parent. Heavenly Parent, I am grateful. For the sake of accomplishing the ideal of creation that You originally hoped for, we are aware of how difficult, lonely and painful Your course was as You sought for the True Parents. We offer infinite gratitude to You, our Heavenly Parent who endured until Cheon Il Guk could be proclaimed on earth.
