Book 4: The True Family Movement
Speech 11: God’s Ideal Family and the Kingdom of the Peaceful Ideal World, pg 612-617
Respected leaders, you are now living in an age of blessing. God’s promises are coming to fruition. The kingdom of heaven on earth, the kingdom of peace that is God’s ideal of creation, is being established before your eyes. My life of more than eighty years, this lonely path trod solely for Heaven and stained with blood, sweat and tears, is now bearing victorious fruit for the sake of the world’s six billion people. From the spirit world, the founders of the world’s religions, along with tens of thousands of saints and your own good ancestors, are watching your every move. Whoever strays from the heavenly path will reap the consequences.
In more than one hundred eighty countries, ambassadors for peace who have inherited Heaven’s will and tradition are making serious efforts, day and night, to proclaim the values of true love and true family. They are moving forward with full force to establish peace on this earth. In the Middle East, one of the world’s tinderboxes, Jews, Christians and Muslims have found the resources in my philosophy of peace to engage in a new dimension of dialogue. In past decades, Unification Thought played a decisive role in ending the Cold War. Now I am successfully leading vital efforts to bring about the reunification of my homeland of Korea.
However, I am not yet satisfied because I began my life’s work at the command of Heaven. I have come as the True Parent of humankind with God’s anointing and I am determined to keep my promise to Him. I am determined to obliterate all national divisions and barriers that have poisoned this earth and to establish the world of peace, where all people everywhere can live hand in hand.
Respected ambassadors for peace: I believe you have learned many things through the message from God that I am conveying to you today. As humanity continues to drift aimlessly, your help is needed more than ever before as people who represent Heaven. Please take this opportunity to make a new determination to be Heaven’s envoys, prepared to uphold Heaven’s command. With this in mind, I would like to summarize the message I have given today so that we can all take the mission given to us by Heaven and inscribe it deep within our hearts.
What did I say was lost by the Fall of Adam and Eve, who were created as God’s children?
First, the realm of the lineage given to us by God was lost. Blood lineage is the most special among all special rights that parents pass on to their children. Through the Fall, Adam and Eve received the false lineage of Satan and descended to become Satan’s children. We have to understand with certainty that all human beings today without exception, regardless of who they may be, are the descendants of the Fall who have inherited the blood lineage of Satan. When God created Adam and Eve, He invested His entire being 100 percent and created them on the standard of absolute love, absolute faith and absolute obedience. God gave them His lineage as the seed for their love and life.
So from this moment, you are in a different position. The path has been opened wide for you to change your lineage through the holy wine ceremony handed down by the True Parents and rededicate your marriage so that you may establish true families.
The second loss at the time of the Fall was the realm of siblings when, in the family of Adam, the older brother Cain killed his younger brother Abel. God’s original structure and blessing was that siblings in a family would lead a life of love and harmony, yet sibling relationships were degraded to become enemy relationships of envy and resentment. This is the reason humanity needs to completely restore this divisive lineage through the worldwide exchange marriages led by Rev. Moon. Only when the younger brother, who is favored by Heaven, can establish a relationship as a loving subject partner to his elder brother can the original family structure envisioned by God be restored.
Ladies and gentlemen, because I have spent my life exposing these evil secrets of Satan, it was inevitable that I would face intense persecution and suffering which words cannot describe. Now, however, I have been victorious over all obstacles, and I have declared the Age after the Coming of Heaven, when the power of Heaven becomes manifest. On this foundation, I am building a representative Abel realm on the world level that brings together religions and nations representing seventy percent of the current world population. To create a representative Cain-realm on the world level, I am bringing together those with the Mongolian birthmark, which includes some seventy-four percent of the world’s population.
Now these two, the worldwide Abel realm and the worldwide Cain realm, must become as one body, with the Universal Peace Federation in the position of the Abel UN. To establish a world of peace on this earth, the conflicts and barriers on every level must be dispelled; we are to reach a level that transcends religion and nations. I would like to remind you that this is how all humankind will be able to enter the world of the original ideal of creation. It is humanity’s destiny to fulfill our responsibility to establish the original right of ownership that was lost by the Fall of Adam and Eve.
Please remember that now is the time when the Abel realm, which is on the side of Heaven, must embrace the Cain realm on a cosmic level. Then we can make a new beginning toward establishing the new heaven and new earth, the kingdom of God on earth and in heaven, with Heaven’s complete authority.
Leaders from around the world, let me take the opportunity provided by today’s distinguished forum to reiterate my proposal for a truly providential and revolutionary project. For the sake of peace and human welfare, and to build God’s homeland and original hometown, I propose that we build a passage for transit across the Bering Strait, which is the last remnant of Satan’s historical division between East and West, North and South, and where the North American and Russian land masses are separated.
This passage, which I call the World Peace King Bridge and Tunnel, will link an international highway system 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 that separation and division will no longer be tolerated. Carrying out this project will bind the world together as one village. It will tear down the man-made walls of race, culture, religion and country, and will help to establish the world of peace that has been God’s cherished desire.
The United States and Russia can become as one. The European continent, China, India, Japan, Brazil and all nations, along with all the world’s religions, can combine their energies to succeed in this project. The success of this project will be decisive in establishing a peace kingdom where people will no longer make war with each other.
Ladies and gentlemen, some may doubt that such a project can be completed. However, 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 the presence of history and our descendants. Let us take one example. How much money has the United States spent on the war in Iraq during the past three years? It is approaching $200 billion. That budget would be more than enough to complete the Bering Strait project.
War is a most primitive 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 our spears into pruning hooks. Humankind must end the perverse cycle of sacrificing our children’s lives and squandering astronomical sums of money to fight wars. The time has come for the countries of the world to pool their resources and advance toward the world of peace desired by God, who is the master and Parent of this great universe.
Ladies and gentlemen, humanity is traveling down a dead-end street. The only way to survive is to practice the peace philosophy of true love, true life and true lineage that I am teaching. Now that we have entered the Age after the Coming of Heaven, your good ancestors are mobilized, and the heavenly hosts are sweeping down upon the earth. Soon the countries and peoples that appear strong and mighty will change course and shift in this direction.
I leave you with a choice. There can be no perfection in ignorance. The message from Heaven that I convey to you today is both a blessing and a warning to this generation. I, Rev. Moon, will take the lead in establishing true families, true societies, true nations and a true world. Will you join with me in this work as I rise and gain strength to bring this new age in accordance with heavenly fortune? Or will you remain captive behind the same old barriers, all of them Satan’s handiwork, that make a wall out of your religion, a wall out of your culture, a wall out of your nationality and a wall out of your race, and spend the remainder of your time on earth in agony and regret? Heaven is summoning you to be the wise leaders who will set aright this world of evil and establish a new heaven and new earth.
Today we are participating in the inauguration of the Universal Peace Federation. It represents God’s victory, the fruit of the True Parents’ blood, sweat and tears, and the world’s cherished hope. It will carry out the role of an Abel-type UN in relation to the existing United Nations for building Cheon Il Guk. Think of the peacekeeping role of the United Nations in the past. Sometimes it withdrew its forces before their mission was completed. The Korean War is a good example. Under the banner of the Universal Peace Federation, we will serve as “peace kingdom police force” and a “peace kingdom corps” to safeguard global peace. For the sake of humanity’s future, I hope that you will put on new “true love armor” in this new age and be wise and brave activists in this worldwide peace force.
Please inscribe this warning from Heaven deep in your hearts. Remember that the only way to inherit Heaven’s lineage and establish the realm of liberation and complete freedom is through the holy marriage Blessing established by the True Parents. Moreover, the holy marriage Blessing provides the means to establish God’s ideal family and everlasting world peace.
In closing, I ask you to devote your best efforts for the development and success of the Universal Peace Federation.
