Restoration through the cross-cultural marriage Blessing
Although human beings have been reduced to the position of orphans who have lost their parents through the Fall, the fundamental relationship endowed by Heaven remains intact: God is our Parent and we are His children. As a result of the Fall, human beings became ignorant beings, as if living in a vegetative state, unable to recognize their own Parent even though He is right there within them and beside them.
Therefore, all people, regardless of who they may be, belong to the fallen lineage. All people without exception must be born again through changing their lineage. This is the only way we can be restored into the originally intended blood relationship that God has bequeathed to us.
Furthermore, the best way to restore people to the position of children of God through changing their lineage is through the cross-cultural marriage Blessing. This is a revolutionary happening, creating the heavenly lineage on a whole new level transcending the walls of race, culture, nationality and religion. It is an act that severs all links of enmity. It is the sacred rite of the change of lineage through which all can be re-created through the True Parents. They are the King and Queen of Peace, the manifestations of God in substance, who enable Him to exercise His providence in the present world.
Beloved ambassadors for peace, place your hand to your chest and ponder this question quietly in your heart: Is there any other way to deliver this world from the wars and antagonism we see around us? Is there a way more certain to create one global family, where there is no hatred between family members, than through cross-cultural marriages between enemy clans or, going one step further, between enemy nations?
Ladies and gentlemen, you each stand in the position of leaders representing the 1.2 million ambassadors for peace around the world who are spearheading the revolutionary Era after the Coming of Heaven. You are Heaven’s emissaries who must fulfill the dual missions of the “peace kingdom police force” and “peace kingdom corps,” which are responsible for ensuring the peace and happiness of humankind in the future. 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 need to 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 God’s kingdom, which I call Cheon Il Guk. You are responsible to educate them about the providence God is carrying out on the global level in this era, centering on the True Parents.
Furthermore, you must teach them without fail that the cross-cultural marriage Blessing is the ultimate means to establish the peaceful, ideal world here on earth and guide the people of your families and clans, and the Korean people, to join the holy ranks of those who receive the cross-cultural marriage Blessing.
A revolutionary new era
Ladies and gentlemen, it is truly regrettable that you cannot sense with your own eyes this precious revolutionary Era after the Coming of Heaven. It has never been seen before and will never again be repeated. The reason for this is that you are relying only on your five physical senses. I hope that you will open your five spiritual senses as quickly as possible so that you may clearly perceive how the providence of Heaven is unfolding in this era. You live in the era of heavenly fortune, which you have received without giving anything on your part. Yet please bear in mind that the providential timetable, which proceeds according to an absolute standard, will not wait for you indefinitely.
Now the time has come for you to unite into one as the representatives of the ambassadors for peace who have preserved the spirit of the Korean people and the pride of the “white-clad race.” There is no time to waste. What does it matter whether your name is Kim or Pak? Is there any reason for Gyeongsang Province and Jeolla Province not to harmoniously unite? The pro-Seoul Korean Residents’ Union in Japan (Mindan) and the pro-Pyongyang General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chochongryon) each have their roots in the same Korean Peninsula. What of South and North Korea? Aren’t we all brothers and sisters, sharing a common lineage? At this time, we have to bear in mind that we are descendants of the “white-clad race” and of Heaven. We have been raised to establish the lofty ideal of advancing the welfare of humankind, and we are the kinsfolk of a people called, selected and anointed by God to stand at the forefront of building the peace kingdom in this, the revolutionary Era after the Coming of Heaven.
We need to seek out and establish “God’s kingdom and His righteousness,” for it is everyone’s ultimate destination to live in a nation that serves and attends God as its center. What is meant by “God’s kingdom”? It signifies the kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world. It is 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 is the nation that humanity has longed for throughout the ages, the utopia where God is sovereign.
Then what is meant by “His righteousness”? It signifies the heavenly way and heavenly rule. Each of us on earth has been commanded to pass judgment, with the heavenly authority of true love, upon this evil world that suffers under scheming, treacherous regimes. It is our duty to establish the ideal, peaceful world of true love, a liberated, free world based on justice and truth.
The role of ambassadors for peace in building the ideal world
After all, humanity is meant to become one family. The remarkable advances of modern science are contributing greatly to making this world one global village. The time has come to establish the beautiful kingdom of the peaceful, ideal world, where whites and blacks, and Orientals and Westerners, live together in harmony as one great family.
During this time of transition, the Universal Peace Federation and the Mongolian Peoples’ Federation for World Peace that I have founded will play important roles. The Universal Peace Federation (UPF) will now stand in the Abel position to the existing United Nations. It will not be an arena of competition such as that which exists between the member nations and departments of the UN. Instead, it will carry out a historic revolution for the peace and welfare of humanity on a global and universal level. Unlike the UN, which focuses on slogans and outward appearances, UPF will work on a more fundamental and substantial level to fulfill a messianic mission that is genuinely beneficial to humankind.
Peace-loving ambassadors for peace, the Mongolian race, making up 74 percent of the world’s population, is the largest racial group in the world. We have to inspire all five billion of them and generate a climate of true love on this planet.
You and I were born on the Korean Peninsula; we share the same cultural background. You are the peace ambassadors and special envoys of Heaven who are conveying my teachings and educating others to establish exemplary families through true love, true life and true lineage. You, who have become ambassadors for peace, must now go forward with the conviction and dignity of a prophet who comes with Heaven’s truth, having no fear of the path of death. Go out as Heaven’s special envoys, and God will certainly grant you eternal life.
The Mongolian birthmark, which we all have in common, is not merely a physical mark of the Mongolian race. It is the mark given long ago by Heaven to the ancestors of Korea, the Dong Yi tribes, to function as the sign by which the True Parents would inspire and unite all humanity with the arrival of the revolutionary Era after the Coming of Heaven. Furthermore, the Korean race, standing at the center of the Mongolian peoples, are the chosen people who stand at the forefront of the 6.5 billion people of the world and who must fulfill their mission to pass on True Parents’ tradition on their behalf.
Please do not forget that the peaceful, ideal world, which God envisioned at the time of creation, and which He desired when He created humankind, is now being built right before your eyes. If this is not a miracle, then what is? All around the world, the couples that were joined in cross-cultural marriage Blessings are putting down the roots of God’s true love. The new heavenly lineage is bearing fruit. The day draws near when this beautiful earth will become the original garden of Eden, where we will enjoy everlasting peace and happiness. Surely innumerable generations of our descendants will shout, “Hallelujah for God’s kingdom of Cheon Il Guk!”
May the great blessings and the grace of God be with you, your families and the Korean people.
