Cheongpyeong Heaven and Earth Training Center, Korea
Korea Rally for the Realization of Cheon Il Guk
Beloved blessed families, today, in the fifth year of Cheon Il Guk, we have entered a significant providential time. You are all opening the way to a new heaven and a new earth in the direct presence of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind, who stand on the foundation formed by the success of the Coronation of the Peace King and Queen of Cosmic Unity. Today, with the cooperation of the spirit world, you have all been called here urgently as key leaders who have important roles in building the kingdom of heaven on earth and in heaven. You have been gathered here to help to build the ideal world God intended at the time of the creation, in other words, a world of peace.
We are here today in the third month of the fifth year of Cheon Il Guk at the Cheonseong Wanglim Palace, the original holy ground. At this important time in history, I would like to speak about God’s most earnest desire, the restoration of the homeland of our true God. You need to understand this message that I convey from God and put it into practice in this age. A new spring is upon us, the Era after the Coming of Heaven. Please open your hearts and welcome this deeply meaningful spring day.
Seeking God’s kingdom and His righteousness
Dear members, God has revealed to us His kingdom and His righteousness, yet the people living on earth have been unable to receive them. Nonetheless, God’s kingdom and His righteousness remain the hope of humankind today and the hope of all those who ever lived on earth throughout history.
This hope-filled kingdom, and the righteousness flowing from that hope, remain our final goal and purpose, yet why are these still unfulfilled? It is because of the human Fall. God and human beings were to have become the center of God’s kingdom and righteousness. Yet instead, because our first ancestors fell, God and human beings were alienated from each other, unable to form any relationship. Due to the Fall, human beings lost the heavenly lineage and instead became Satan’s children who inherited Satan’s lineage.
The human race fell into ignorance: ignorance of the true parents and true families that were to be the center of God’s kingdom and His righteousness, and ignorance of the true nation. For this reason, God had to labor throughout history to awaken humanity and teach us about the true parents, the true family, and the true nation. Finding God’s kingdom and His righteousness remains our ultimate hope and goal.
Dear members, there are more than two hundred nations in the world today. Yet among these numerous nations, there is not one that God can call His own homeland, and that can receive His complete love. For this reason, the purpose of God’s providence, spanning more than six thousand years, has been to completely re-order this fallen world and re-create the kingdom of God.
Throughout history, the purpose of God’s providence has been to build His kingdom. Until that kingdom is established, God will not be able to complete His Will for the restoration of humankind. First, however, there must be a central nation based on a central religion. This is why during a certain historical epoch, God sought to establish a nation of His own.
The Bible records this effort as the providential history of the chosen people of Israel and Judaism.
The nation of our hope
What kind of nation do we yearn for? It is not like the nations any of us live in today. We will part with those nations someday. However, we still do not have God’s nation to live in. A person without that nation does not have an original hometown. A person without God’s nation does not have a real nationality. A person without God’s nation has nowhere to truly register his or her existence. Therefore, our task in this life is to create God’s nation.
Only when we have God’s nation will the tradition we establish live on through our descendants for eternity, and will the effort we have made while shedding our blood and sweat live on. That nation will be a monument celebrating Heaven’s labors. In it, the evidence of God’s glory will endure on the earth. However, if we fail to find that nation, everything we have done will have been in vain.
For this reason, you need to understand clearly that today our most critical task is to seek and establish God’s nation. You must live always with the conviction, “Our family protects the nation that True Parents love. Thus, I have to become a filial child of True Parents and walk the path of a loyal citizen of that nation.”
Let us seek the path that fulfills our true desire. On the foundation of God’s nation, let us establish the kingdom in which we will want to live for all eternity. It must be a world in which everything we possess also belongs to the cosmos, a world in which whatever we have belongs not only to this age and to the past but is also guaranteed to belong to the future. We have to envision this ideal hometown and kingdom in our minds, establish its righteous laws in our lives, and then live for the sake of that kingdom and its righteousness.
Do you have such a kingdom? If you do not, aren’t you trying to establish it? What did I say this kingdom is? It is an ideal, unified and peaceful nation. It is a nation where all six billion people of the world live as one family. It is the peace kingdom, where eternal peace and prosperity reign in glory. It is there we attend the Peace King and Queen of Cosmic Unity as our true lords, true teachers, and true king and queen.
All the world’s families, tribes, and peoples will offer their support to this kingdom. The entire spirit world will rally to it. The founders of the great religions and our good ancestors will observe and support every move we make to establish it. I say to you, if as individuals you unite your mind and body, you can unify your families, tribes, peoples, nations, world, and cosmos.
