Cheon Seong Gyeong: Episode 374
Cheon Seong Gyeong Book 12: Cheon Il Guk
Chapter 1: God's Homeland and Cheon II Guk
Section 2: The Background and Proclamation of Cheon II Guk, 13-20
(13) Since we conducted the Holy Marriage Blessing Ceremony of the Parents of Heaven and Earth Opening the Gates of Cheon II Guk on True Parents’ Birthday, we could finally register marriages. Then, the Enthronement of the Cosmic True Parent and the True Parents of Heaven and Earth as the King and Queen of the Blessed Families in Peace and Unity rendered it possible for us to inherit God’s kingdom and establish a king on the family level. The family king then becomes a tribal king, a people’s king, a national king, and a world saint. From the position of divine son, he goes on to inherit God’s position.
(14) The Holy Marriage Blessing Ceremony of the Parents of Heaven and Earth Opening the Gates of Cheon II Guk was conducted on True Parents’ Birthday in 2003. The True Parents’ Holy Wedding took place centered on Cheon II Guk. God and True Parents finally became one through true love, true life, and true lineage, and upon the foundation of the Holy Wedding, we have arrived at the world level. Now we have to adjust everything to that standard. We can proclaim Cheon II Guk only on the foundation of the change of lineage of the nations representing the First, Second, and Third Israels through the marriage Blessing. The kingdom of heaven is a realm in which people are united in heart, but this world, because of the Fall, is not a realm where people are united in heart through true love, life, and lineage. It is a realm where unity can be attained only through indemnity. Therefore, to realize the realm of unity upon which the kingdom of heaven can be established, I conducted the Unification Blessing Ceremony to Register the Blessed Families that Formed the Four-Position Foundation at the Great Transition of the Three Ages. Following the proclamation of this Blessing and the proclamation of Cheon II Guk, all blessed families in the spiritual and physical worlds now can register.
(15) We carried out the Enthronement Ceremony for the Kingship of God during the first year of the third millennium, on January 13, 2001. Originally, I should have conducted the Holy Marriage Blessing Ceremony Opening the Gates of Cheon II Guk in 1980, when I turned sixty, but it had to be postponed until True Mother was sixty. We held it on her sixtieth birthday in the third year of Cheon II Guk. On that date, the new Cosmic Parent and Parents of Heaven and Earth could become one, and the date of the Holy Wedding anniversary could be fixed. Through the Holy Marriage Blessing Ceremony Opening the Gates of Cheon II Guk, True Parents were enthroned as the King and Queen of the Cheon II Guk families.
(16) The Holy Wedding of the Parents of Heaven and Earth could not have taken place if Cheon II Guk did not exist. The Holy Wedding and birth registration would not have been possible if the Enthronement Ceremony for the Kingship of God had not taken place. If we had not had a nation, we could not have conducted these events. We conducted the Holy Marriage Blessing Ceremony of the Parents of Heaven and Earth Opening the Gates of Cheon II Guk on True Mother’s sixtieth birthday, a full two years after the Enthronement Ceremony for the Kingship of God. It was possible to conduct this Holy Wedding Ceremony only after God and True Parents had finally made a foundation for God’s homeland. After that, we held the Enthronement of the Cosmic True Parent and the True Parents of Heaven and Earth as the King and Queen of the Blessed Families in Peace and Unity. For the first time in history, the position of the King of the families is occupied.
A great providential transition point
(17) In this era of the revolution of the conscience, we have to bring our body to complete submission under the authority of our mind. This is an absolute requirement. People who cannot unite their mind and body cannot enter God’s kingdom. They will not be able to inherit God’s three-generation lineage and achieve the original standard of the kingdom of heaven. After a revolution of the conscience, when three generations join as one in the cultural sphere of the revolution of God’s heart, they can enter the kingdom of heaven. I bestowed upon you the Unification Blessing Ceremony to Register the Blessed Families that Formed the Four-Position Foundation at the Great Transition of the Three Ages. Based on that, three generations have to unite. If they do not, they cannot enter the Cheon II Guk family nor the liberated Cheon II Guk nation within God’s realm of heart in the age of settlement of the culture of heart. From now on, your mind has to win the absolute surrender of your body. Never follow your body’s whims.
(18) You must wonder where we stand today in the course of providential history. Though it is invisible to the human eye, we are in a time of great transition. Especially since 2000, divine providence has been advancing toward its completion at great speed. I have founded numerous organizations and groups to expedite the providence. Among those groups, the Interreligious and International Federation for World Peace and the Peace UN are to embrace Satan’s realm and, in the Abel position, work together with the Mongolian Peoples Federation for World Peace, in the Cain position, to liberate Satan’s realm and bring about a unified world. These groups have to take full responsibility to ensure that discord and conflict between the Cain and Abel realms no longer plague history.
(19) The term Cheon II Guk did not appear by chance. Throughout history, people had to accomplish restoration through indemnity. Building on the victorious foundation of World War II, we had to work as a movement to bring together nations, religions, and non-governmental organizations to the point where no condition for accusation remained. Only then could we establish Cheon II Guk. The world can no longer deny the work I am doing. I began my work in the provinces of Korea, advanced to Asia, and from there to the entire world. It is not easy to do such work for forty years. It is like a dream to think that we have actually succeeded in setting up God’s kingdom. To do so, we had to conduct the Enthronement Ceremony for the Kingship of God. There could be no enthronement without a nation, and now we have finally conducted the Blessing ceremony that opened the gates of Cheon II Guk.
(20) In 2004, True Parents were crowned as the King and Queen of Peace in a United States Senate building and at the Korean National Assembly. Following these coronations, I established the Universal Peace Federation in New York in 2005. On that victorious foundation, we conducted the Cheon Jeong Gung Entrance Ceremony and Coronation of True Parents, the King and Queen of Peace, in Heaven and on Earth, on June 13, 2006, substantially establishing Cheon II Guk. Looking back at my eighty or so years of life, I have been imprisoned six times as a result of persecution and false charges in the process of carrying out God’s Will. Today marks the twenty-first anniversary of my victory over the hardships of prison life, my release from Danbury Prison, where I spent the Last of my six incarcerations. To commemorate this day, and to celebrate Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon’s return after her successful completion of a 180-city global speaking tour representing me, I organized the historic Rally for Victorious Complete Freedom on the Return of Heaven and Earth, the Homeland and Hometown of Cosmic Peace, to God. Mrs. Moon, with the authority of True Parents, has spent the last six months ministering to the world, conducting the Holy Marriage Blessing, and conveying the peace messages. With the completion of this revolutionary journey, we are able to open the Era after the Coming of Heaven and proclaim the Settlement of the Ideal Family and the Kingdom of the Peaceful Ideal World, which God has longed to see from the very beginning.
