The value of a family of three generations living in harmony
Ladies and gentlemen, the reason we miss the family we have left behind is because at home there is love for one another. Home is where the love of mother and father, the love of brothers and sisters, the love of one’s spouse, one’s children and one’s close neighbors are all deeply embedded. It is a place of mutual affection, where all the relationships and affinities are brought together through mutual love. This makes you want to cherish each and every member of your family. It is the yearning and desire of any wanderer who has left his family behind to reappear boldly before his family, as a liberated being, and embrace the mountains, streams and trees, love his relatives and countrymen, and sing songs of ecstasy. However, the situation of humankind descended from the Fall has been different. Banished from their original heavenly hometown and destined to wander around in isolation and defeat, human beings have been never been able to go back, no matter how much they missed their families, for they have lost the root of the heart of their original homeland.
However, with the ushering in of this era of a new heaven and a new earth, we are being pulled out of the swamp that was sucking us down. The way is being opened for us to return to our hometown, which we have never forgotten even for a moment, and to meet with our true family. Could there ever be a day of greater blessing for humanity? The time of heavenly power and fortune has now come, making it possible for us to reestablish the original family that was lost through the Fall of Adam and Eve.
When seeking after the lost original family, you should set out from the position of the perfected Adam, the position of the perfected Jesus, and the position representing the perfected Second Coming of the Lord. God will dwell in such a family. That family would be one of three generations—grandparents, parents and children—living in harmony. Parents and children live in service and attendance to the grandparents as the historical root of the ancestors.
The family sets the pattern for living together in harmony. The family wherein parents and children love and respect each other, husband and wife are grounded in mutual trust and love, and brothers and sisters trust and rely on each other, and all live together as one, is the model ideal family. This means that you need to establish a true family wherein the stem of true love emerges from the root of true love and bears the fruit of true love.
Such a true family is the root of history and the root of the kingdom of heaven, because it is from such a family that the kingdom of heaven on earth takes root. It is also where the everlasting root of kingship is firmly planted. The roots of the past, present and future are represented in the grandparents, parents and grandchildren, respectively. The root of the past represents the spirit world; the root of the present is the palace representing the world today; and the root of the future establishes the grandsons and granddaughters as princes and princesses. Through such a family we erect the palace of peace, representing the harmony of the two worlds, the spirit world and the physical world.
In this manner, the three generations of grandparents, parents, and grandchildren live together as one family, serving the eternally existent God. You have to know that to seek after and establish such a family of Cheon Il Guk, God’s kingdom, is the responsibility of tribal messiahs, the mission of the ambassadors for peace, and the desire of God.
You must form families that God will miss and yearn to return to after He has been away. You have to raise families to which He can come freely as a parent visiting His children. This is what it means to live in service to God. Within such a family, God becomes the subject partner of our conscience, acting vertically. Following that vertical subject partner, our mind stands in the position of subject partner to our body and brings the two into unity. That is where parental love, conjugal love, children’s love, and siblings’ love—the four realms of love or the four realms of heart—are perfected. Only in such a family can the upper and lower, front and back, le and right be connected as one, in a circular flow of energy. This leads to God’s everlasting, model ideal families and nations, and to His peace kingdom.
The age of the eternal, ideal kingdom of peace
Ladies and gentlemen! Why do we get married? It is to restore the position of an owner. A man or woman alone can be only one half of the whole. That is how God created us. For that reason, He has interchanged the owners of the reproductive organs, the love organs. The owner of the wife’s reproductive organ is the husband, and the owner of the husband’s is the wife. Only when each is rooted in love for the other can they stand in the position of the owner of their spouse. We marry to secure this position of the owner.
Then what are we trying to achieve by restoring the position of the owner? It is to fulfill and embody God’s love from that position. God is the subject of the three great loves. As the owner of the universe, He is the teacher, owner and parent of true love. This is the original three great subject partners system of thought. All such teachings and truths are created based on the life of true, model families and once they expand, the society, nation, world, and even heaven and earth can be transformed into the peace kingdom of the model ideal family.
Distinguished leaders, you are now living in the most blessed and exalted time in history. I now proclaim the launch of the era of a new heaven and earth, the Era after the Coming of Heaven, long-awaited and yearned for by billions of ancestors in the spirit world who have come and gone in history. This is the era of the kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world. Not only the four great religious founders, but also billions of good ancestors have come down to earth at this point to guide you on the heavenly path. The age in which the fallen and corrupted world plays havoc with humanity, allowing those who are evil to live better than others, is passing away.
Rev. Moon, who received the seal of Heaven, has come as the True Parent of humanity and the King of Peace. I will be true to my promise to God.
I will bring to fruition the era of the kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world on this earth, without fail. Therefore, please bear in mind that all of you gathered here today are the central figures in establishing the kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world on this earth, in attendance to the King and Queen of Peace, the True Parents.
Under the banner of the Abel-type UN, let us sweep away the perversions and the evil of this world through true love power. Let us become the proud “peace kingdom police force” and “peace kingdom corps” of the Universal Peace Federation, and protect the blessed families of the world. Let us fulfill our roles as the sentinels watching over this blessed land that is our planet.
I pray that the blessings and grace of God may be with all of you leaders representing different areas of responsibility, whose presence has elevated this historic occasion.
I ask you to devote your best efforts, as True Parents have, toward the development and success of the Universal Peace Federation, and toward creating God’s ideal family, ideal nation and the peace kingdom.
Please become true princes and princesses who can attend and live together with God, the Eternal Peace King, as the True Parent of humanity. Let us each live up to the standard of a true filial child, a patriot, a saint, and a member of the family of divine sons and daughters of God, in order to create the peace kingdom for all eternity.
May God’s blessings be with you, your family, and your nation.
