Proclamation Ceremony of the Day of Complete Rebirth, Complete Resurrection and Complete Eternal Life (Fortieth day after True Parents’ helicopter accident)
Distinguished guests from one hundred and ninety nations, who have come to celebrate this significant and providential day:
I would like to begin by offering my heartfelt gratitude to God, who protected my wife and me and all who were accompanying us. I sincerely thank all those who prayed and offered devotions on our behalf.
Today I feel truly humbled. Through the more than eighty years of my life, I have gone through countless ordeals, incarcerations and innumerable life-or-death situations solely for the purpose of fulfilling God’s providence. Although the rest of the world does not know this, my life has been a continuum of intense battles with Satan that I have fought alone.
Ladies and gentlemen, God truly carries out His providence in mysterious ways. At the time of the helicopter accident, which no one could have imagined, Heaven mobilized the spirit world and made sure Satan dare not harm my wife and me, the True Parents. Even in the eyes of ordinary people this incident was extraordinary, a miracle among miracles. It is being recorded as an amazing wonder, incomparable to any other in history.
I have publicly announced that January 13, 2013 is the day when the restoration of the homeland is to be fulfilled, and I am devoting my entire being, day and night, for that purpose. Could Heaven abandon me? As God’s representative in the flesh, I have accomplished His Will on earth. So if not with Rev. Moon, with whom will God be able to work in perfecting His providence and returning humanity to God’s bosom?
As my wife and I can once again stand here before you today, thanks to God’s tremendous grace, our hearts are bursting with emotion. We were called by God and anointed as the True Parents of humanity. Human beings are born into the fallen lineage without true parents. They are orphans who have wandered aimlessly for thousands of years. We have received the great mandate from Heaven to save all people and bring them back to God.
With four years to go, and in the final leg of our drive toward 2013, I proclaimed the combination of two halves (Ssang Hab), the combined jubilee years, which are the seventh and eighth years of God’s kingdom of Cheon Il Guk. As I did so, I ordered the spirit world and the physical world to advance in all directions.
It was at that very point in time that I was involved unexpectedly in the helicopter accident. Yet, through this accident, Heaven once again revealed to the ignorant and unenlightened human race that God is very much alive and active. Join me now in carrying out an explosive revolution of true love and true families.
Let us never forget, even for an instant, that we are positioned at a very urgent point in time, when we have to bring every single person in this world to become part of a blessed family.
The providential era centered on the anointed representatives
Ladies and gentlemen, on this momentous day, I would like to convey a message from Heaven to you who have come from around the world. It is a message I delivered at a seminar held in both Texas and Washington, D.C., from April 30 to May 2, which brought together leaders of nations from North and South America. Humanity is now entering a new era, the era of heaven that is turning the world upside down. It is a time when God will work through the anointed representatives (boonbongwang) that, in my capacity as King of Peace, I am sending to every part of the world. In other words, it is the time when we will complete God’s kingdom of Cheon Il Guk.
Ladies and gentlemen, if John the Baptist had fulfilled the responsibility he had in relation to Jesus, Jesus would not have been opposed by the leaders of his religion or his nation, and he would not have gone the path of the cross. With John the Baptist at his side, Jesus would have led the people of Israel to win for God all the authority and power of Rome, in accordance with God’s preparations over thousands of years. Had such a foundation been secured, Jesus would have sent out his royal representatives, over all the roads leading out of Rome, to all corners of the world. They would have been the representatives and ambassadors of Jesus, the King of Peace, and would have fulfilled their mission of bequeathing to the world the Will of Heaven. They would have thus created Cheon Il Guk, the kingdom of peace, throughout the world, a kingdom without walls or barriers, liberated and completely free from evil.
However, we know quite well that humanity has been unable to free itself from Satan’s deception, and instead has walked a path of restoration through indemnity for the past two thousand years. The mistake of one person, John the Baptist, who failed to unite with Jesus and then died a miserable death, led to this disastrous result.
Even so, heavenly law does not allow God’s providence to be permanently interrupted or abandoned due to human error. Today, God has chosen this land of Korea to become the homeland in which His providence will come to fruition. This is because it is the homeland of the True Parents, who were infused with the spirit of this land at their birth.
I have already appointed and announced special anointed representatives for the three central nations of this providence. I appointed Dr. Chung Hwan Kwak, chairman of the Universal Peace Federation, to represent Korea, which stands in the position of the father nation in the providence. Rev. Hideo Oyamada, chairman of the Universal Peace Federation of Japan, was appointed to Japan, the mother nation; and Mr. Dong Moon Joo, chairman of The Washington Times, to the United States, which stands as the providential eldest son.
I am initiating a peace movement to unite the Americas. I would recommend someone such as former United States President George H.W. Bush as a special representative of North America, and someone such as former President Julio Maria Sanguinetti of Uruguay as a special representative of South America. As a special representative of the Republic of Korea, the providential homeland, I have selected Dr. Cheol Seung Lee, whom the people of Korea respect as a great elder statesman.
Ladies and gentlemen, I am working hard to send out anointed representatives to all nations of the world. They live in an era in which mistakes such as those committed by John the Baptist will never be repeated. Unlike Jesus, whose time on earth abruptly ended on the cross, I will surely complete the restoration of God’s homeland on earth, as I have received Heaven’s seal as the King of Peace. With God and the King of Peace as the central axis, I shall lead the anointed representatives sent throughout the world and thus create the original ideal kingdom of everlasting peace.
Please unite your minds and bodies and engrave in your hearts the heavenly message that God is revealing to you. Please remember that this message speaks of the heavenly path that will guide your activities and life from this day on.
