The responsibility of the Universal Peace Federation and the Abel UN
Ladies and gentlemen, I ask that you closely analyze the current state of affairs in the world. Although the days of communism are gone, even now, powerful nations are constantly on the lookout for opportunities to pursue their own interests aggressively at the expense of the powerless and small island nations. No small island nation by itself can deal with these nations and their economic, political or even military ambitions. They are so powerful that if they wanted to, they could dominate any smaller nation in a single day, without shedding blood.
Only when peace and security are settled in the Pacific Rim can peace for all humankind be guaranteed. As I have mentioned, the small island nations by themselves cannot contend with the great tsunami of powerful nations moving into the region. The time has come, therefore, for the small island nations in the Pacific Rim sphere to unite and build the homeland of the new godly civilization.
The small island nations dispersed in the northern and southern regions of the Pacific, on either side of the equator, as well as Japan, Taiwan, the Philippines, Indonesia, the Solomon Islands, Australia, New Zealand and other countries, need to work as one country, forming a union to sustain peace in the Pacific Rim civilization. This will secure peace and stability for all people. You have the responsibility to protect and save the oceanic realm, which is a lifeline upon which humanity’s future depends, from the environmental destruction and conflicts that are worsening by the day, and to shield its natural resources for the sake of peace in the future.
Ladies and gentlemen, for the purpose of resolving these problems that afflict humankind, on September 12, 2005, I proclaimed throughout all of heaven and earth the establishment of the Universal Peace Federation, which will enable God’s providence to flourish. Now it is possible for UPF to serve as an Abel-type counterpart to the United Nations in the Era after the Coming of Heaven. It will renew the Cain-type United Nations and lead the way for millions of ambassadors for peace throughout the world who have taken up the teaching of the Heavenly Parent. That is to say, my teachings on the principles of true love and the ideal of a true family absolutely will fulfill the heavenly will of creating one family under God.
The change of lineage through the cross-cultural marriage Blessing
Ladies and gentlemen, through the cross-cultural marriage Blessings that transcend religious denomination and nationality, the Universal Peace Federation will be the vanguard that carries out the great revolution of restoring the original lineage of humanity, hearkening back to Adam before the Fall. Some may laugh and say that this is impossible. Yet, where there is a will there is a way, especially if it is God’s Will. The international and cross-cultural marriage Blessings, conducted according to my teachings, are God’s work done on God’s behalf. Please think about this: What do you think will happen if people from countries such as the United States and Russia marry across the boundaries of their nations through these marriage Blessing ceremonies? The two nations will belong to one family under God, who is the eternal, absolute Lord of Creation. How could anyone aim any weapons, much less nuclear weapons, at a nation that millions of their grandchildren, descendants of their own lineage, call their home? The holy task of building the ideal kingdom of heaven, the sacred reign of peace on earth, by recovering our ideal homeland and hometown, is being carried out enthusiastically in all corners of the world. This is God’s hope for engrafting the seven billion people of the world into one lineage as a God-centered tribe.
Beloved leaders, ladies and gentlemen, please do not miss your chance to ride on the surging currents of heavenly fortune during this important and sacred jubilee. Take the lead in protecting and developing the realm of the oceans, which cover more than seventy percent of Earth’s surface. Where else will we access the treasure stores of natural resources by which we can resuscitate the earth, fulfilling our promise to end pollution and resource depletion?
You have come to a truly significant event today. You need to join together under the Strong Korea banner. The scope of this campaign shall soon go beyond the Republic of Korea to the rest of Asia, and become a beacon that shines beyond Asia to the world. The Universal Peace Federation’s thought will engender a strong Korea because, at the root of Strong Korea, we find God’s philosophy of peace based on true love. Is there an ideology or philosophy that can surpass this philosophy of peace and the ideal of God’s true love? Heaven shall surely be triumphant! On this meaningful occasion, please engrave this message in your hearts.
The families of your good ancestors in heaven are already blessed. Numbering in the billions, they have come to earth today to listen to this message with you. This is because it is only through you, their descendants, that they can perfect themselves and advance to the positions of true parents, true teachers and true lords and owners. You must not forget the fact that the spiritual and physical worlds live and breathe together in this way and walk hand-in-hand.
Let us stand as the vanguard and pillar of the Abel UN
Your families now need to find their place in history by fulfilling their mission as members of the peace kingdom corps and the peace kingdom police force of the Abel UN, which is advancing God’s providence in the revolutionary Era after the Coming of Heaven. History will forever remember you for leading a noble life of devotion for the wellbeing of humanity and world peace, as we globally develop the peace kingdom corps and the peace kingdom police force.
I pray that you will engrave today’s message in your hearts and share it as material for educating your children, your young people, and your entire nation. May God’s blessings and grace be upon you, your families, the Pacific Rim and the Peace UN, and upon the launch of a Strong Korea.
