Chapter 3: True Parents and the Era of Cheon Il Guk
Section 3: The Providence of the Cheon Il Guk Era, 09-21
(9) You should join the proud ranks of the global peace kingdom police force and the peace kingdom corps in service to the lofty aims of the Universal Peace Federation for the sake of God and humanity. The more than 280 family names of Korea should become one, transcending clan and location, uniting proudly as a people God has chosen in this era. Please bear in mind that this is the God-given mission that you have as leaders representing the Korean clans and race.
(10) Ladies and gentlemen, you each stand in the position of a leader representing the 1.2 million ambassadors for peace around the world, spearheading the revolutionary Era after the Coming of Heaven. You are Heaven’s emissary responsible for ensuring the peace and happiness of humankind in the future. You have the dual missions of the peace kingdom police force and peace kingdom corps. Therefore, Buddha, Confucius, Jesus, and Muhammad, as well as hundreds of generations of your ancestors, have mobilized to watch your every move. Your mission is now as plain as can be. First and foremost, you should declare to every member of your clan and to all your acquaintances that the world has now entered the revolutionary Era after the Coming of Heaven, the era for the establishment of Cheon Il Guk. You are responsible to educate them about the providence God is carrying out on the global level in this era, led by the True Parents.
A project for peace
(11) I am deeply moved by the hundreds of non-governmental organizations, national ambassadors, and religious leaders who stepped across the borders of race, nationality, and religion, and gathered here in one place to fulfill the dream of one family under God.
(12) I have dedicated my entire life to teaching the path of living for the sake of others through the practice of true love. This is a basic principle that surely applies not only to individuals but also to the family, the society, and the nation.
(13) Leaders from throughout the world, today we are marking the long-sought conclusion of God’s providential history. Let me take this opportunity to repeat the proposal I have made for a truly providential and revolutionary project. This project is for the sake of the kingdom of peace, which is the culmination of the providence for God and humankind, and also for the purpose of establishing God’s homeland and original hometown.
(14) Satan created the historical divisions of our world, into East and West, North and South. I propose that we build a passage across the Bering Strait that separates the North American and Russian landmasses. This passage, which I call the World Peace King Bridge and Tunnel, will link an International Highway of Peace that will allow people to travel on land from Africa's Cape of Good Hope to Santiago, Chile, and from London to New York, across the Bering Strait, connecting the world as a single community. God is warning us that He will no longer tolerate separation and division. By carrying out this project, we will bind the world together as one village. It will tear down the man-made walls between races, cultures, religions, and countries and establish the kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world that has been God's cherished desire.
(15) The United States and Russia can become as one. The European Union, China, India, Japan, Brazil, and all nations, and also the world's religions, can combine their energies to make this project succeed. The success of this project will be decisive in establishing the kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world, where people no longer wage war against each other.
(16) Ladies and gentlemen, some may doubt that such a project can be completed. But where there is a will, there is always a way—especially if it is the will of God. The science and technology of the twenty-first century render it possible to construct a tunnel under the Bering Strait. The construction costs are also not a problem. Think of how much money the world is wasting on war. Humanity needs to realize that we are committing fearful sins in front of history and our descendants.
(17) Let us take one example: How much money has the United States spent on the war in Iraq during the past four years? It is already 400 billion dollars. That budget would be more than enough to complete the Bering Strait project. War is a most immature and destructive means of resolving conflict. It will never lead to lasting peace. Now is the time, as the prophet Isaiah taught, to beat our swords into plowshares and spears into pruning hooks. We should end the perverse cycle of war, which only sacrifices the lives of our children and squanders enormous sums of money. The time has come for the countries of the world to pool their resources and advance toward the kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world desired by God, the Master of this great universe.
The fruits of God's providence are evident in history
(18) On three occasions in 2009, once on January 15 and twice on January 31, we held the history-shaping "Coronation with the Authority of the Liberation of God, the King of Kings and Golden Anniversary Celebration.” On January 31, we held this ceremony at the Cheon Jeong Peace Palace in Korea, representing the East, and again in New York City, representing the West. In this way, we set a record by offering to Heaven a historically unprecedented, never-to-be repeated providential event on the same day in both the eastern and western hemispheres.
(19) In April of 2009, my wife and I celebrated the fiftieth commemoration of the day of our Holy Wedding. In 1960, students on the Korean peninsula were crying out in resistance to dictatorship. On the sixteenth day of the third month of the lunar calendar in that year, my wife and I received Heaven's seal and embarked on the arduous course in the providence of restoration that the True Parents, True Teachers and True King and Queen of humanity have to take. How can I even begin to explain the path of the providence of restoration through indemnity that my wife and I have had to follow for the past fifty years in order to finally bring complete liberation and freedom to God and to attend Him as the King of kings? Many years from now, historians will verify and announce what I cannot explain at this time.
(20) You are probably not aware of the profound providential significance in True Parents' coronation and golden wedding anniversary. Due to the sin of humanity's first ancestors, God's true lineage was lost, and history fell under the dominion of Satan's false bloodline. I am sure you have learned about this reality through studying the Principle. This corrupted bloodline has been part and parcel of history. Isn't it because of this that the physical world, and even the spirit world, became completely mired in antagonistic, confrontational, good-versus-evil, Cain-Abel relationships? No one has found a resolution to this tragedy, and history's problems have gone unresolved to this day.
(21) Times are now changing, however. On the occasions of True Parents' coronation and golden wedding anniversary, the doors to the realm of complete unity between Cain and Abel are opened. We have entered the realm of grace where human beings can be restored to the level of completion and perfection. At this point, we can inherit and share the original nature of God's heart. In other words, we can reach the human state as originally intended, without a trace of the Fall. Using "O" for correct and "X" for incorrect, we have entered the new era when the good governance of God, who is "O," can completely embrace and digest the evil governance of Satan, who is "X," leaving virtually no trace. The new era is beginning in which the kingdom of heaven on earth and in heaven is expanding substantially before our eyes, and when there is no longer the need to distinguish between the True Parents, who work as the embodiment of God, and the incorporeal God Himself.
