Recent Speeches 11: Where Do You Stand?
Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, affectionately known as True Mother, gave the main address on the Fifth Anniversary of Foundation Day held at the Cheongpyeong Heaven and Earth Training Center in Korea on February 28, 2018.
Beloved global members and blessed families of the Family Federation:
Today, as we welcome the fifth anniversary of Foundation Day, where do you stand? Heavenly Parent, the Creator, created all things in his image and then created Adam and Eve, a man and woman, who could have become the first good ancestors of humankind. He granted them a growth period so they could achieve absolute oneness with Heavenly Parent and through absolute faith, absolute love, and absolute obedience they could attain perfection and be together with Heavenly Parent. This was Heavenly Parent's, the Creator's, dream. Yet what occurred? Adam and Eve fell to a position of not fulfilling their responsibilities, creating a fallen world with no connection to God.
However, God could not just stand back and watch the fall of humankind, so he began to lead the providence of restoration through indemnity. God selected the Israelites as the chosen people and began a course of restoration through indemnity, creating a foundation at the individual, family, tribe and national levels. You must know how difficult that process must have been and how ignorant humankind must have been that Heaven had to go through that painful and bitter history of the providential course for four thousand years.
Be like sunflowers
Though they fell, human beings' original nature yearns for goodness. Ultimately, they had the desire to become sons or daughters of Heavenly Parent, the absolute God. Heavenly Parent also had the dream of embracing his children. Though we are inadequate, you must become people who can receive the efforts and love that Heaven has prepared for us. Therefore, I said this: you should go back to the beginning and through the Holy Spirit and the truth, unite with True Parents like sunflowers directed toward the sun and fulfill your Tribal Messiah mission with an aligned mind and body. Your mission does not end with completing your Tribal Messiah work. If 430 couples all become Tribal Messiahs, the foundation can go beyond the nation-level and unite the world. As those who have united with True Mother, this is your responsibility. So I ask, where do you stand at this point? Where do you stand?
If there are any brothers or sisters still with the mindset of the New Testament, you must wake them up. The providence is moving on. The providence will not wait for you. I am building the Cheonbowon [a genealogy center] so that the dedication and the records of your life on earth with True Parents can be recorded for eternity.
It is now the sixth year of Cheon Il Guk, and if you still have swaying forces around you, you will have to sort it out. You have a long way to go. Do you understand? Will you do that? If you follow today's resolution, in this commemorative ceremony of the foundation day of Cheon Il Guk, Heavenly Parent and True Parents will be with you and will bless you eternally with love and grace. I pray that you will mobilize everything and become victorious Cheon Il Guk citizens and heavenly children.
