The Era after the Coming of Heaven and the declaration of True Parents
Rev. Moon established me as the representative of Eve, and revealed the origin of the human Fall as well as the meaning of related parables in the Bible and patterns of history. This was because the providence of God mandated that I personally announce worldwide every wrong committed by Eve.
The fact that I was able to visit one hundred thirteen cities in every corner of the globe and successfully hold WFWP assemblies in each one, in the short period of three months, was a miracle. Upon reflection, it shows how providentially significant the inauguration of WFWP was, and how history was ready for it.
Through such devoted efforts, WFWP became an international organization and a foundation for worldwide activities in its inaugural year. Now all WFWP members worldwide are working hard with our organization’s founding spirit of “Let us form families of true love and construct sound societies and a world of peace based on the maternal love of women.”
Ladies and gentlemen, the Cosmic Assembly for the Settlement of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind who, as God’s Embodiment, Proclaim the Word’ was held last year, starting in Korea and proceeding to eight nations in Europe, the United States and Nigeria. is was a tour to declare the final completion and conclusion of the history of the providence of restoration in its entirety in the lifetime of True Parents.
The path taken by the True Parents will serve as a tradition and historic example. Thus, I am proclaiming that you need to model your life course on this path, become families that pledge to inherit and fulfill the Will of God that True Parents have already accomplished, and be true to this pledge.
On April 29, 2010, in commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of our Holy Wedding, Rev. Moon brought to a close the Era before the Coming of Heaven, which was marked by sin and indemnity, and proclaimed the Era after the Coming of Heaven, through which true love will realize a new heaven and new earth. You must bear in mind that the speaking tour he undertook at that time inaugurated the Era after the Coming of Heaven.
The details of True Parents’ life course have already been conveyed to you through Rev. Moon’s autobiography. I pray that you will all become the representatives and heirs of True Parents before the conclusion of the Cosmic Assembly for the Settlement of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind who, as God’s Embodiment, Proclaim the Word’. I also pray that you will inherit his vision, including the vision revealed in his autobiography, which is a record of True Father’s unfailing triumphs as he worked to establish his supreme victory, his achievements and the words he has given while he is still living on this earth, so you can also be triumphant in your course of life. As True Parents have done, you too need to become vertical ladders that can lead your relatives and the members of your clan to God’s kingdom. I ask that you take this proclamation of True Parents to heart and pledge to put it into practice.
Together with the declaration of the advent of the new era of women, Rev. Moon has supported this new women’s movement centered on God’s true love. The Women’s Federation for World Peace chapters around the world are carrying out diverse social education activities for the establishment of true family ethics. They have launched activities for women to practice service and sharing with neighbors and communities. Other activities focus on reforming the United Nations, helping that world body attain its Millennium Development Goals, bringing about exchanges between nations and solidarity among them, and pursuing the 1% Love Share Project for North Korea as part of the movement for the reconciliation and reunification of South and North Korea. In addition, chapters in all nations are carrying out various projects adapted to the circumstances and conditions of their respective countries.
In 1994, WFWP established one hundred sixty thousand sisterhood pairs, one hundred sixty thousand Korean women with the same number of Japanese women in thirty-eight conferences. In 1995, we commemorated the fifty years since the end of World War II with a sisterhood ceremony between American and Japanese women, giving birth to twenty thousand American-Japanese sister couples. Afterward, this ceremony was extended to women of different races in the United States. The sight of women from enemy nations embracing each other and making peace, centering on God’s true love, was truly beautiful and heartwarming.
This reconciliation tradition developed on different levels. Last year, through the Registration for God’s Kingdom and the Fatherland, one hundred seventy-two American clergymen were given Korean surnames as they formed fraternal ties with Koreans of those surnames. In short, they were registered in God’s kingdom, realizing the ideal of One Family under God. Based on such activities, members of WFWP Japan are carrying out volunteer work, building schools, and imparting teaching skills with love, devotion and dedication in difficult regions of the world, including Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia and South America. By thus transcending the barriers of race, religion and nationality, they have expanded the global foundation for WFWP.
All WFWP chapters in the world are participating in the 1% Love Share Project for North Korea, which signifies the heart of wishing to share a little of what we have. To broaden the program’s field of support, it has now been expanded to be the global 1% Love Share Project.
While carrying out such diverse activities, WFWP members have come to have a strong sense of solidarity, truly feeling that “The world is one, and humanity is one family.” Women leaders of all races from nations across the world have participated in its work and shared their experiences and wisdom in regard to the role of women in constructing a world of peace. In the process, WFWP has formed close friendships with women leaders of global prominence.
Our serious situation as Foundation Day approaches
Respected members of WFWP, throughout our lives my husband and I have established and managed a variety of international organizations and institutions to promote world peace. We have invested unreservedly in many fields, including religion, society, culture, sports, education and the media, and we are developing these organizations with the aim of promoting peace and bringing salvation to humanity.
Many people commend us and tell us that, after achieving so much, we deserve to comfortably enjoy the rest of our lives, reflecting upon our course with satisfaction amid the adulation of all people. They encourage us to put down our burdens and live our remaining life with Heaven, content with the successes achieved during a lifetime of ninety years.
However, my husband and I cannot look at the lives we have led in such a way. Why not? Because we have received the anointing of God, who is the vertical True Parent of all human beings, and we need to complete the mission of the substantial True Parents. Therefore, we are leading each day of our lives with more seriousness than ever before, especially now that only a year remains until the completion of the substantial Cheon Il Guk. The ninety years of Rev. Moon’s life have been dedicated to liberate God, the True Parent of heaven and earth, to restore to Him the position of the Parent, to save all human beings who suffer in the realm of death, and to return them to God’s bosom. For this purpose Rev. Moon has persevered and triumphed over countless tribulations while driving toward the goal of global salvation, leading the lost people of the world who have been reduced to the lot of orphans ignorant of their parents.
And has not every human being inherited the false lineage due to the Fall of the first ancestors? Is not each person wandering in darkness even now, unable to break free of Satan’s bondage? Under such circumstances, how could our lives be anything less than completely desperate as we try to guide the almost seven billion people of the world along the path toward the building of God’s kingdom on earth?
Ladies and gentlemen, we are living in a time of great cosmic transition in history. It is a time for a great cosmic revolution to change history, to unite the spiritual and physical worlds and to create the ideal kingdom of heaven that God has longed for since the beginning of time. We can no longer postpone or prolong the fulfillment of His wish. Heaven has already proclaimed that January 13, 2013 will be Foundation Day.
That day will be the actual beginning of God’s kingdom of Cheon Il Guk. Yet only a year remains.
Therefore it is time for all people to be humbly obedient to Heaven’s decree. The fateful time is upon us. We must invest ourselves completely with a life-or-death commitment during this final year before Foundation Day under the guidance of the True Parents, who carry out the providence on earth as the substantial representatives of God, the King of peace. All the good spirits in the spirit world are roused and are already moving forward a step ahead of you.
Beloved members of WFWP Japan, we are presently in the era of the Pacific civilization realm. The central nations of this era are Korea and Japan.
The Adam nation is Korea and the Eve nation is Japan, and the archangel nations are the peripheral nations of the United States, China and Russia. Each was chosen by God.
For Japan to fulfill its mission as the Eve nation, it has to connect the new tradition of the Eve nation to the world of Korean women. This was made possible through the inauguration of WFWP. Going beyond the role of Eve nation, Japan has the providential status of the mother nation. Until now, it has played the role of daughter and the role of wife in the course of restoration through indemnity and has taken the lead to fulfill its given responsibilities and duties.
However, though Japan as the Eve nation ought to fulfill its mission in accordance with Heaven’s Will, far from doing so, it is opposing the entry of Rev. Moon into Japan and persecuting us. Though Japan is acting in such a manner, I have worked to enlighten it about the heart and the circumstances of Heaven and what God desires of Japan, with the heart of love that is one in heart and body with my husband.
Rev. Moon is putting his heart and soul into establishing Japan as the mother nation, as the providentially restored original Eve nation, bringing Japan beyond the position of the daughter to the father, beyond the position of the bride who can receive her bridegroom, and beyond the position of the wife to her husband. You need to bear in mind that this is the course of sacrifice that incorporates the boundless love and devotion of True Parents, who are trying to resurrect you and save you by breathing new life and love into you at all times. Herein lies the reason why the Japanese members have to take the lead and work even harder than WFWP members of other nations.
