International and cross-cultural marriage Blessing
Distinguished ladies and gentlemen, our bondage to the lineage of Satan has caused so much suffering throughout history. Let us now boldly step forth to sever it and be grafted onto the root of the lineage of the True Parents. Why would we foolishly continue to live and die as wild olive trees? A wild olive tree, even if it lives a thousand years, will only continue producing the seeds of more wild olive trees. Where can we find the path to escape this vicious cycle?
It is through the holy Blessing. The holy Blessing ceremony offers the grace of being grafted onto the true olive tree. It is instituted by the True Parents who bring God’s true lineage to humankind. Once you change your lineage to God’s lineage, your offspring will belong to God’s lineage naturally. We receive the holy Blessing in three stages: rebirth, resurrection and eternal life. These marriages contribute to the enormous task of transcending the barriers of race, culture, nationality, ethnicity and religion, thereby creating one family of humankind. In God’s sight, skin color makes no difference. God does not recognize national borders. God does not stand behind the barriers of religion and culture. They are nothing more than the devil’s tricks. Satan has used them to rule over humanity as a false parent for tens of thousands of years.
You have the mission to teach the members of your families and clans that perfecting a life of absolute sexual morality through the international, cross-cultural marriage Blessing is the ultimate means to establish a peaceful, ideal world here on earth. Your families and clans could all join the holy ranks of those who have received the marriage Blessing based on the perfection of absolute sexual purity.
Ladies and gentlemen, the path is now open wide for you to change your lineage through the holy wine ceremony that the True Parents have instituted. This Blessing is given to you, either as newlywed couples or as already married couples, that you may establish true families.
True Parents’ peace movement
Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to reiterate the proposal I have made for a truly providential and revolutionary project for the sake of peace and human welfare, a project that will enable us to build God’s homeland and original hometown. Satan has historically divided our world into East and West and North and South. I am, therefore, proposing that we build a passage for transit 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 cross the Bering Strait and link to 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, connecting the world as a single community.
God is warning us that He will no longer tolerate separation and division. 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 establish the kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world that has been God’s cherished desire.
The United States and Russia can become one. The countries of the European Union, China, India, Japan, Brazil and all nations, as well as all the world’s religions, can combine their energies to succeed in this project. Its success will be decisive in establishing the kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world, where people will no longer wage war against one another.
Beloved blessed families, you are now living in the most blessed and exalted time in history. The Era after the Coming of Heaven has arrived. I proclaim the beginning of the new heaven and new earth, long-awaited and yearned for by billions of your ancestors in the spirit world who have come and gone in history. This is the era of the kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world. The four great religious founders and billions of good ancestors have come down to earth to guide you on the heavenly path. The age when the fallen and corrupt world wreaks havoc on humanity, allowing evil people to live better than others, is passing away.
We have to seek out and establish that nation of righteousness, the ultimate destination in which we all attend God as the center. What would that nation be? It would be the kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world. It would be a nation that resembles the form of a model, true family with three generations living together in harmony, trusting, respecting and supporting one another and becoming one in love. In short, it would be the nation that humanity has desired throughout the ages, the utopia where God is sovereign.
This means we need a movement to realize a society of interdependence, mutual prosperity and universally shared values. We have to make humanity one great family, breaking down the walls in our hearts and eliminating even the boundaries between nations. This movement begins from each family. Therefore, each of us has to bear in mind that it is our providential calling to establish a true family. This is the way we can advance the establishment of the universal peace kingdom on earth.
Indeed, all this is coming to pass. 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, my Unification Thought played a decisive role in ending the Cold War. Now I am successfully leading behind-the-scenes efforts to bring about the reunification of my homeland of Korea.
Nonetheless I am not yet satisfied, because I began my life’s work at the command of Heaven. With God’s anointing, I am fulfilling the role of True Parent to humankind, 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 kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world, where all people everywhere can live hand in hand.
The Era after the Coming of Heaven that God and True Parents have opened is a time of dramatic change. You have the mission to make this era blossom and bear fruit in blessing and glory. Therefore, please become Heaven’s emissaries, fulfilling the dual missions of the “peace kingdom police force” and the “peace kingdom corps.” Serve humanity under the banner of the Universal Peace Federation, which is working to take up the role of an Abel-type UN. Worthy citizens of the world, if not you, then who will nurture and protect the blessed families and this blessed planet Earth that God has given us?
Ladies and gentlemen, I have said that in the Era after the Coming of Heaven we must recover the true lineage that was lost when Adam fell, by receiving the marriage Blessing through the True Parents. The providence of the Blessing is to be perfected through five stages: the individual, family, tribe, people and nation. In this way, let us fulfill our divine mission as blessed families in the Era after the Coming of Heaven by restoring and establishing the ideal three-generational family on the world level. This is the same purpose that Jesus sought to accomplish on earth before passing from this world.
Therefore, I am now leading all tribal and national messiahs to unite and bring to a final end the improper relationship between the political sphere, representing the Cain realm, and the religious sphere, representing the Abel realm.
The Mongolian Peoples’ Federation, representing seventy-four percent of the world’s population, needs to bear in mind that the providential age is now upon us in which we must fulfill our duty by restoring the world through the Blessing on the world level. This will bring to a close the conflict between Cain and Abel, which began in humankind’s first family.
Ladies and gentlemen, the providential time has now come when we have the mission to unite the two sons, Cain and Abel. It is by their mother’s love that they can become one. Then, after recovering their original positions, they are to dedicate the restored, original, ideal family before the True Parents, the King and Queen of Peace in heaven and on earth. Please take this to heart and engrave it in your mind: You are living at a time when God gives you the mission, through restoring the true, ideal family, to offer before Heaven the realm of siblings’ love and the right of ownership that our first human ancestors gave over to Satan through the Fall.
You are now advancing into the era of liberation and complete inner freedom, which is the providential era of the realm of the heart of the Fourth Adam. In other words, it is the Era after the Coming of Heaven. This is the time when, metaphorically speaking, the sun is directly overhead, such that no shadow is cast. This signifies that we have passed through the Era before the Coming of Heaven, which included the Old, New and Completed Testament Ages. These past eras required immeasurable restitution and atonement by people who could only dream about re-creating the ideal.
The present time, however, corresponds to the era prior to the Fall of Adam and Eve, the era of building the original ideal world. It refers to the era of true love that is all encompassing, all-powerful and has overall authority. It is the realm of heart in which the spirit world and the physical world are bound together as a unified realm centering on the love of the True Parents, the King and Queen of Peace. In other words, it is the era of the kingdom of peace and unity in heaven and on earth.
Please become true princes and princesses who live in attendance to God as your True Parent, for He is the Peace King of the multitudes. Let us build the everlasting peace kingdom by attending True Parents, who have been enthroned as the King and Queen of Peace in heaven and on earth in the realm of eternal liberation and complete inner freedom, where there is no need for a Savior, a Messiah or a returning Lord. Let us fulfill the dutiful way of filial children in the family, patriots, saints, and divine sons and daughters.
By following God’s commandment to uphold absolute sexual morality, let us establish exemplary families, inherit True Parents’ victory of restoring through indemnity the realm of three generations, and perfect the world as it would have been without the Fall.
Let us establish model, ideal families to bring the complete settlement of the universal, ideal realm of liberation and complete inner freedom, and the kingdom of goodness. In that kingdom, we will be able to enjoy a time of absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal peace and prosperity, and it will become the homeland of peace in heaven and on earth that everyone can praise for all eternity.
May God’s blessings be upon your family, your nation and the world forever!
