Book 2: God’s Homeland and the Peace Kingdom
Speech 13: The Restoration of Our True God’s Homeland, pg 311-313
Dear members, what is your purpose for being alive on earth today? It is to love the nation and the world. God’s purpose also has been to love the nation and the world. However, if we remain citizens of a nation without sovereignty, we are pitiful. That is why Jesus said, “Therefore, do not worry, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ For it is the Gentiles who strive for all these things, and indeed, your Heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But strive first for the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matt. 6:31-33)
God sent Jesus to earth as His incarnation, representing the heavenly lineage to fallen humankind. In other words, Jesus was the first person to come to earth who could fulfill the hope God had nurtured throughout history. Four thousand years after Adam, God raised Jesus on earth as His, the true seed, who grew up in the family of Joseph, a Jewish family. Yet Satan, having already established entire nations, was attacking the heavenly side. Therefore, the heavenly side also needed a firm foothold on the national level. The fruit of God’s toil for four thousand years was this one nation within the evil world. Heaven toiled to prepare Israel for that purpose.
Dear members, Jesus came to earth in search of God’s nation. He came in search of one nation, yet due to the disbelief of Israel and Judaism, he could not establish that nation. He came to establish a nation on the physical as well as on the spiritual level, except he could only establish a spiritual kingdom. Therefore, Christianity today still does not have a substantial, physical nation of its own on earth.
This means God does not have a nation on earth, He can call His beloved homeland. He does not have a citizenry He can call His beloved citizens. The foundation for God’s kingdom has not yet been established on earth.
Christians, even now, are a people without a nation or sovereignty. As Christians witnessed for their faith, wherever they went, they were subject to persecution and martyrdom. Christianity developed through the bloodshed by its martyrs. That was how Christianity began and how it grew.
The days of persecution requiring bloodshed may be drawing to a close, however, they have not disappeared yet. The Christian belief in the Second Advent of Christ arises from a deep yearning for a true nation. It anticipates that, based on Christianity’s worldwide spiritual foundation, the Lord will restore and establish the substantial nation that was lost.
Dearest blessed families, humanity has entered the Era after the Coming of Heaven, when we are receiving heavenly fortune anew. In front of the new heaven and new earth, The vortex of disbelief and betrayal that has troubled the earth is withdrawing. In the fifth year of Cheon Il Guk, spring is coming, and soon it will be in full bloom. The time has come for all blessed families to arise with firm resolution.
Let us fulfill our providential responsibility to unite all six billion people of the world into one family. We shall do this by lifting up the Interreligious and International Federation for World Peace, which stands in the vertical position of Abel. The Mongolian peoples, who are the root of some seventy to eighty percent of the world’s population, stand in the horizontal position of Cain. Through the marriage Blessing, we shall them bind together as one clan. This will completely break down the walls between races, the barriers between religions, and the conflicts between nations. In this way, we will build Cheon Il Guk.
God has given His full authority to me as the Savior, Messiah, returning Lord, and King of kings. These titles are summed up by the terms “King of Peace” and “True Parents.” Cross-cultural, international marriage Blessing is the only way to bring humankind together as one global family that transcends races, nations, and religions. What other way is there to make one’s enemy of yesterday into one’s blood relative of today, and to make people of different traditions and cultures into one great family?
Dear members, first and foremost, I ask you to give the Blessing to your family and tribe and to establish your tribal Hoondok Church. The success or failure of the Family Federation, the reunification of Korea, and the creation of one global family depend upon this initiative.
We must quickly break free from the customs and mindset belonging to the Era before the Coming of Heaven. Practice a life at high noon, in vertical alignment with God, casting no shadow of sin, and offer yourself in absolute faith, absolute love, and absolute obedience to God and True Parents. You will then enjoy eternal peace and freedom as a citizen of Cheon Il Guk. Your descendants will pay tribute to you and take pride in your achievements for eternity. You will live eternally in attendance to True Parents, even in the spirit world.
Please engrave in your very core the message I have given you today. As you depart, resolve to be the elite ambassadors of Cheon Il Guk, who will open a new heaven and new earth. Let the fire of true love ablaze in your hearts guide you. Have heavenly courage, and push forward on the path of a true owner, true teacher, and true parent!
I pray that God’s blessings will be with you and your families. Thank you very much.
