Recent Speeches 58: True Mother’s Heavenly Africa Declaration

Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, affectionately known as True Mother, gave the keynote address at the 2019 Africa Continental Summit. She also gave the Benediction and Proclamation at the Hyojeong Family Blessing Festival. These events were held at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa, on December 7, 2019.

Through this Blessing, where the good men and women of 54 nations of Africa attended Heavenly Parent, I declare today that Africa is now the Heavenly African continent that is forever together with Heavenly Parent.

When we look at history until now, there was war and conflict and immense oppression. There was no unity. There was a desire to create a peaceful world, but history shows that it could not be achieved. This is because they could not attend the Creator, Heavenly Parent, who was to be the Owner of humankind. In order to attend Heavenly Parent, the victorious true parents must emerge from humankind and fallen humankind must be born again through the Blessing as Heavenly Parent’s children. Until then, Heavenly Parent cannot come to be with us.

Through the long history of the providence of restoration led by Heaven, the Only Begotten Daughter, the True Mother, was born in the Korean Peninsula in 1943 and True Parents could emerge in 1960.

There is still confrontation between democracy and communism in Korea, which is to be the homeland of the providence. However, True Parents have ushered in the era of the Asia-Pacific civilization. Through the True Parents, and through having achieved the position of becoming one with the True Parents, the Asia Pacific Union was established.

In the era of the Atlantic civilization, people viewed Africa as the last continent under Heaven, but through True Parents it now has become the “first” continent in the world. Please become one with Heavenly Parent and the Only Begotten Daughter, True Mother.

Let us make the African continent the place that originally was created by the Creator, God, where healthy and beautiful people live. Today you became one with the Only Begotten Daughter, True Mother. Is that so? We are one human family that attends Heavenly Parent.

Prayer at the Blessing Festival in Johannesburg

Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, affectionately known as True Mother, gave the following Blessing prayer at the Hyojeong Family Blessing Festival, which was held in the First National Bank (FNB) Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa, on December 7, 2019.

Most noble and precious Heavenly Parent!

Until this day came about, You have looked for and waited for Your lost sons and daughters in tremendous sadness and pain over a long period of 6,000 years. Your ideal for the Creation began centered on a man and a woman who fulfill their responsibility. Hence, You could not abandon fallen humankind. You conducted the providence of salvation and sent many prophets and righteous people to educate humankind. Two thousand years ago, You finally were able to send Jesus Christ, the Messiah who could realize Your dream. And yet, the people’s ignorance resulted in them not accepting Your Will.

As a result, Jesus ultimately went the way of the cross. He promised to return and conduct the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. This is because Your providence can come to completion only through the emergence of the True Parents, as the first human ancestors, to complete Your ideal of creation.

Since You are all-knowing and almighty, You created human beings to be eternal. Fallen people have longed for Your only begotten son and only begotten daughter to be born, whom You can call Your son and daughter, and have offered devotions, enduring war, conflict, suppression, and indescribable pain, to see the day they can meet You, Heavenly Parent.

Africa, in particular, has been a continent of much pain for You, with its history of tremendous oppression, violation of human rights, and extreme suffering, and as “the last” continent in the Atlantic civilization realm.

Hence, to complete Your providence, You established the True Parents in 1960, and ever since, You have raised Your children through the Blessing that enables fallen people to become Your children. In Africa, in particular, the hope of many prophets, kings and chiefs of many nations has been to usher in the day peace reigns with everyone attending You, Heavenly Parent. Representatives from the 54 nations of Africa have gathered here today to register as Your children and will be reborn as blessed couples.

Heavenly Parent, how long have You endured and waited? How much have You wanted to love and bless such a day? Your long-cherished desire can now be realized through the blessed families here today. Please enable them to remember that when they fulfill their responsibilities as blessed families and as tribal messiahs, Africa no longer will be a miserable continent but will become a continent that attends You and receives Your blessings.

Heavenly Parent, today You are here with us at this Blessing! Just as today’s weather expresses the tears You shed and the pain You endured throughout history, today also marks the birth of Your children, whom You can joyfully accept. I pray that You may accept every child in joy.

This is an occasion upon which all blessed families pledge to become Your devoted sons and daughters who will never make You lonely. Please joyfully accept them. I pray and proclaim all this in True Parents’ name. Aju.
