Parents’ Day And Our Path

Those who were engaged this weekend were supposed to go back to their missions, but I see a lot of familiar faces out there. (Laughter.) Raise your hands and show me, those of you who were engaged.
In the tradition of the Unification Church, we celebrate many special days during the year. Among them, the most important for the fallen world is Parents’ Day because without that, there could not be any Children’s Day, Day of All Things, and so forth. Because the restoration of this day is so momentous in the beginning of a new history, God Himself honors this day with great emphasis and joy.
Why is Parents’ Day so important for the fallen world? Why could the world have no hope for the future without this day? Because of the fall, the very roots of mankind- the origin-became damaged. Therefore, without penetrating all the way down to the root, there could be no real restoration. Out of a fallen root, the tree has grown up with many branches as well as a lot of fruit. But none of those branches and fruit bring joy to God because they have nothing to do with God’s providence.
Originally, the root was to have been established by God. From that heavenly root, the tree and branches and fruit would have brought glory to God. But the original root was pulled away from God’s position into the satanic realm. Since the root was the evil action of the fall, all it produced was suffering for God, not His glory. Man’s lineage has been wrong.
Each human being, consisting of spirit and body, was supposed to be a recipient of the true love of God. But because of the human fall, contradiction came about between man’s mind and body. False love engendered the fruit of the tree, not holy, pure and true love. That was not meant to be and it is not natural; it is abnormal and wrong. The fall of man came during the indirect dominion of God; therefore, we have never obtained the direct dominion of God, which is the reign of true love. Unless we obtain that reign by fulfilling human responsibility in the realm of indirect dominion, there is no way we can achieve perfection.
The original ideal of creation is for each individual to be born in purity within the true lineage and grow up through the indirect dominion of God. During this time, guided by the truth of the Principle of God as well as human responsibility, man and woman would mature to completion. Ultimately they would be united, centered upon true love, and enter into the direct dominion of God. As you know, that is the Principle of Creation. In other words, to belong to God, it is necessary to fulfill human responsibility.
That was the original picture of creation, but exactly the opposite has occurred. On the weekend, many couples were matched. I want you to realize that even though you men and women have been matched and are ready to be engaged and receive the Blessing, getting out of the false lineage and transferring yourself into the true lineage is not an easy task at all.
Before we can be returned to the original state, we must go back to zero point-the very original, starting point. Therefore, each man and woman is destined to search after the place in which we can totally erase the false lineage of Satan, where we can erase the original sin. Unless you can find such a place, there is no hope for the restoration of the true lineage. The first step toward that goal is the recognition that we were born into the fallen lineage and our root is on the wrong side. We have to come to that poignant realization first.
Why do we need to learn the Principle of Creation and the Principle of the Fall of Man? It is because we need to know the original blueprint of God, and at the same time we need to know what went wrong. Unless you can get down to that root and truly discover where the wrong root began-in other words, unless you come to that original cause-you can have no hope for cure or restoration.
The most astonishing thing in the life of the Unification Church under the True Parents is the discovery of this truth-that we do inherit the fallen lineage. At the same time, we know that every person is destined to go through the indirect dominion of God fulfilling human responsibility, and ultimately there is hope to reach completion, or perfection of union with God. That is the most incredible discovery of the Unification Church.
Who shall connect to the two realms of human life- indirect dominion and then the direct dominion of God- and by what shall we accomplish that goal? There is only one way-by going through the true love of perfected Adam. Adam and Eve were meant to perfect themselves and to achieve the direct dominion of God. Once they were vertically connected, they could become united horizontally; they were to perfect their vertical and horizontal love.
People want to know what is a perfected person. Most people have absolutely no idea what that is, simply because they do not know the Principle of Creation. Only by the teaching of True Parents has the whole truth been unfolded: the Principle of Creation, particularly the importance of the indirect dominion of God and human responsibility, and how we can achieve perfection. For the first time in human history, that blueprint has been revealed. The path that we are to walk is very clear: we have to grow through the indirect dominion of God, fulfilling our human responsibility, then ultimately plunge into the direct dominion of God.
Men and women must individually walk that path toward perfection, then unite as couples and become the direct heirs of the lineage of God. By doing so, they will represent the perfection of the universe, as well as the fulfillment of the hope of mankind. United in true love, man and woman become one body, one spirit, one unit in the sight of God, and thus enter His direct dominion. Once that perfection of love is completed, no power under the sun can infiltrate or defile it. Not even the entire wealth of the world, including a huge chunk of solid diamond or gold, could buy such preciousness. It is priceless accomplishment.
Each man and woman should be able to stand on that foundation and declare to the world, “Nothing under the sun and no satanic power can ever have influence over me.” When a man and woman reach that level of perfection, they become the central point of the love of God within the universe. Therefore, the dignity and holiness which such a man and woman impart can never be defiled by any earthly force.
In our world today, there are many different nations, some of which are highly advanced and some of which are underdeveloped and primitive. If a representative of one of the primitive nations decided he wanted to come and meet with the President of the United States, he would have no chance unless he knew exactly which route to take. Think about and compare the difficulty of trying to meet the President with someone who wants to find the path to the true love of God. Which way do you think would be more difficult? The important difference is that, although it is difficult, there is a way for a representative of an underdeveloped country to meet with the President. But for an individual fallen man or woman to find the place of the true love of God is virtually impossible. That is because no amount of effort on their part is good enough to find that path.
For you to join the Unification Church and work for three and a half years, then to be called to be matched and blessed by Father is, in a way, unspeakably easy. It is almost too cheap. Do you think you have worked enough to deserve that Blessing after three and a half years in the Church? Absolutely not. No one comes even near to deserving that Blessing from the True Parents. In order to find the formula for giving out the Blessing to humanity, God had to suffer unspeakably and the True Parents suffered to an incredible degree. Now can you come here and try to take that accomplishment freely, thinking you deserve it?
Let’s give an analogy. Suppose a king and queen were giving a festive banquet in their palace. Do you think somebody dressed in smelly, dirty rags and carrying a beggar’s can could be admitted to the palace? Could he be considered worthy to become the prince or princess of the kingdom? That is unheard of, impossible.
Can you say, “Since I am a citizen of the United States, the number one country in the world, I carry great status, so I could enter that king’s palace and claim the role of a prince”? Would your American citizenship buy you such a position? Only those who are specially chosen, handpicked, could enter the palace. Someone might claim, “I am a Ph.D. from Harvard,” or, “I have a high social standing,” or even, “I am the President of the United States.” But none of that would carry any weight.
Within the perfected Garden of Eden, the Kingdom of Heaven, only the joy of true love between God and Adam and Eve has value. None of the secular glories has any meaning in that place. Only one assignment was given to Adam and Eve: “Fulfill your human responsibility.” They were not required to gain a lot of education or social status; all they had to care about was fulfilling their responsibility. By doing that, they could grow up and open themselves to true love.
None of you, not even the 36 Couples, comes near to fulfilling the True Parents’ wishes and standard. You worry about attaining a certain position or privilege within the Unification Church, but none of that has anything to do with heavenly qualifications. When you are gathered together for Parents’ Day, you should not have any such concepts as, “I am a well-educated person,” or “I am a first-class citizen of America.” People who have that kind of impure thinking always hamper God. The only thing He wanted in the Garden of Eden was purity and total fulfillment of responsibility.
Let’s suppose you have two antennae-one spiritual and the other physical. Two antennae working together properly emit waves of crackling light. All God wants to see is whether those antennae are sparking, showing that you are fulfilling your human responsibility. Such a person gives off light to the rest of the world like a lighthouse. Then there is another lighthouse, that of a woman, showing to the world that she also has fulfilled her responsibility. When perfected man and woman come closer and closer, sparkling with electricity, they clash into each other with powerful lightning and thunder, creating the glorious joy of unity.
The ultimate goal of men and women is to enter the direct dominion of God, the dominion of true love, by first walking through and growing up in the indirect dominion. There men and women must demonstrate human responsibility. Once you reach the true love of God, you join with and become part of the root of God. From that root, new offspring can come; new generations and traditions can spring forth and bring great prosperity. When you become that root, you will give the tree new branches and fruit-your children-and they can grow up to perfection. They will be harvested into the heavenly storehouse, the Kingdom of Heaven. That is the heavenly cycle.
Today’s society is exhibiting many forms of perverted love. Homosexuality is one example; the breakdown of families and the high divorce rate is another. All of that is part of the anti-family forces which are ultimately anti-God. Those of you who were matched yesterday, do you feel you deserve that honor? There is only one thing we must accomplish, one thing we should have in our minds: to achieve human responsibility and enter the realm of the direct dominion of God. In other words, achieve true union with God and become the bearer of God’s true love. You have no other or more important goal in life than this because in this way, you will be qualified to enter the Kingdom of Heaven.
You must become men and women who are united as one couple to give seed to God’s true lineage and posterity. If you accomplish that, you can do nothing more precious. Once you become part of the true lineage of God, the more children you have, the better. Suppose you had twelve children; that represents the twelve gates of heaven and the completion of the four seasons.
Those who have completed their responsibility have nothing to worry about, including what to eat or wear or where to live. You will come into God’s direct dominion. Think about it: God is almighty and all-capable. If you were on the verge of starving to death at the edge of the ocean, God could make an instant bridge over that ocean and bring down food and help to you. Nowadays, science and technology have made the most incredible things possible. An example is the space program with its satellites and shuttles. In just 54 minutes, a satellite can circle the earth. People can land on the moon. If man’s wisdom achieved that, certainly God is capable of supplying you with anything at anytime.
Today our job is to clear up false concepts and focus ourselves properly. Even for you elders of the church, such as the 36 Couples, it is most important to reflect upon your own life. During your thirty years or so in the church, have you really done what I have described today, what true men and women must do? Have you been living up to this definition of true men and women?
Your basic understanding is very important; you must not have confusion in your mind but must have a clear concept. When you are firmly standing upon that clear understanding, then strive toward the attainment of true love. Then declare to the world, “Nobody under the sun can take away even one iota of this true love.” When you have that kind of confidence and commitment, you men and women would be standing together like strong pillars, even to the degree that God Himself could not shake you and Satan would have to testify to your achievement.
Throughout history, has there been any man whom God could be completely excited and inspired about, someone for whom He could cheer, “Do more, go ahead, you are going in the right direction”? What do you mean, “Father”? When True Parents say “Father,” the meaning is different from when you say it. For Reverend Moon to say “Father,” it springs from the true definition of the word, including the depth of the position of True Parents. But when you say “Father” so cheaply and when it is convenient for you to have me on your side, it is different. You say, “Father, please give me matching and Blessing.” When it is pleasant, you say, “Father.” When it is not so easy, you call me, “Reverend Moon.”
We must get back to the simplest principle. That means become pure men and women fulfilling human responsibility and acquiring the true love of God. Nothing else is truly important, including secular honor or knowledge. This understanding is a priceless treasure, one which could never be traded for anything else. Once you truly understand it, that is the beginning point of your success. That is what our mission is all about-becoming men and women who stand upon the fulfillment of their responsibility and obtain the lineage of God.
Then we want to change our environment, beginning with the individual environment, then the family, clan, society and national environment. Ultimately, the mission of the Unification Church is to change the worldwide and universal environment. This one principle will prevail throughout the universe. The position of perfected Adam and Eve is that of a seed. Then it can be enlarged to the clan, society, nation, world and cosmos.
The important point is that the center line is always the family. The family is the building block of the Kingdom of Heaven. No matter how many millions or billions of years may pass in human history, this central line of family purity, centered on the true love of God, is unchangeable.
I have drawn on the blackboard a side view of the line of expansion, including the worldwide level and the national level, showing the important central point of the family. If you Unification Church members truly want to enter the Kingdom of Heaven, you have to go from the world into the core, which is the True Parents and their family. Inherit the tradition of love of that family, then duplicate that tradition within your own family, clan, tribe, nation, and world.
The problem in the beginning was that no true seed was formed in the Garden of Eden, no perfected Adam and Eve. Therefore, the satanic pattern came to exist. It is the same formation but exactly reversed, so the opposite world from God’s ideal came into being. Satan planted the evil seed, thus the Satan-centered family, clan, tribe, nation and world is what we have.
One important sign of the Last Days is that the secular world has become totally chaotic and confused. People are absolutely losing their sense of direction, not knowing where to go. That is because they have no seed. The shell of a seed is there, but nothing is inside; therefore they have no anchor or central point. But on God’s side, it is very different; you have the true seed and center on every level of development. Fallen people don’t give much thought to the nation or world because of this lack of a seed. Whatever happens to the rest of the world, they can’t feel a relationship with it. The everyday life of people becomes more individualistic and they pursue more and more sensual pleasures and desires, just trying to have fun. They don’t really know how to make plans for tomorrow.
The world’s respect for the United States has steadily declined in recent years. Everywhere you can hear, “Yankee, go home!” But on the other hand, soon you will also hear everywhere, “American Moonies, welcome!” That is because the Yankee Moonies have declared, “The world is my arena of service. My family, clan, tribe and nation exist for the sake of serving the world.” Then the Moonie also says, “I declare to the universe that I am struggling to restore the world with its true seed, the central point and core.”
There are four billion people in the world, but the most important point is within each individual. Whether you are Bo Hi Pak or anyone else here in this room, you have to create the growing seed inside yourself. Everyone in the world has the same basic shape, the same outer shell. Everyone looks like a complete human being, but others do not have that inner seed and substance. How much have you become the seed of the True Parents’? Is that seed inside you, with God at the core? You must be able to say, “I’m not an ordinary individual. I’m the carrier of God and True Parents. True love is inside of me.” That is the kind of conviction each of you must have.
We must restore that original place. That is why repentance is so necessary. During Jesus’ ministry the first thing he told people was, “Repent, for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.” After we repent, what must we do? We have to take responsibility and create true love. The Unification Church is declaring this truth to the world. We are clashing with the United States, pushing it and pulling it like in a tug of war. That is how I see it. Who is going to win? No one can change the original Principle and the ideal of creation. It will prevail forever. No matter how hard some forces may push against it, it will not move.
During this last matching, I learned much about you. There were so few. virtually none, who really thought, “Yes, Father, whatever you think. I am here to marry only for the sake of Heaven.” Rather, you were feeling, “Oh, please let me have someone a little taller.” Or, “That woman is too fat for me. Can’t you give me someone prettier’?” You were looking at something else. Everybody was virtually out of their minds; they did not know whether they were standing or sitting.
When the True Parents were installed in 1960, it was the most important beginning point for our movement. During that time, I was working on the family level dispensation while the entire weight of the world came against me. In other words, I have always worked against universal opposition. By 1976, the opposition realized that unless they could stop Reverend Moon then, they would never be able to. Actually, the seeds for Danbury were planted in 1976. The culmination of the effort to destroy our movement was Danbury.
The forces of Satan thought, “Danbury will be the cemetery for the Unification movement and Reverend Moon’s power. We’re going to bury them forever, finally.” Rather than rotting in Danbury, however, we resurrected from that point. Danbury became the birthplace for a new seed and new life for our movement; new leaves, branches and fruit blossomed. Normally from the secular perspective, anybody who goes to prison is finished but in the case of the Unification Church, prison became the new birthplace.
The world has been astonished to see how Reverend Moon’s movement has grown since Danbury. Many people hoped that the Unification Church would die during the year of my incarceration and they would never have to hear of us again. But in the year since my release, the whole country, even the whole world, has been virtually transformed.
Our opponents can see the presence of Reverend Moon everywhere they turn. They cannot bear the sound of this growth-it is like overwhelming thunder, so they try to plug up their ears. The light is so bright, they have to shut their eyes. They dislike the smell so much, they try to close their nostrils from that new fragrance. For them, the sound is as displeasing as violent thunder. But for the members of the Unification Church, it is like music and we are dancing around to it. Why are you dancing? You should say, “I’m dancing because I’m fulfilling my responsibility and winning more and more for God every day.” That is what gives you joy.
The gate to the Kingdom of Heaven and perfection has been opened up. The letter “M” looks like the Korean word for gate. If anyone is sincerely seeking perfection, he must pass through that gate of heaven. Not only those living on earth but also those who are already in the spirit world-without exception, each one must pass through this gate. That is the only way anyone can be accepted into the Kingdom of Heaven. What is the content? That is the fulfillment of human responsibility and true love.
Then there is another gate-one for man and one for woman. All the women must go through this gate, fulfilling their responsibility and gaining true love. The men’s gate has one dot on it and the woman’s gate has two dots. All men must pass through the one-dot gate; women pass through the two-dot gate. After passing through, the man and woman can join together and reach the true love of God.
This fundamental point, this basic formula, was first begun in 1960. That was the beginning point of the True Parents’ Day. That is when the original seed was conceived. For the first time in history, there was a true perfected man’s model-the True Father. Then perfected woman appeared-the True Mother. All men should be masculine and powerful like Father. All women should be loving and beautiful like Mother.
Talking about the Kingdom of Heaven, we can explain it most simply. That is, anyone here on earth or in the spirit world can enter the Kingdom of Heaven only by passing through the gate of the True Parents. The Unification Church is providing a mold for true man and true woman. The first mold for man is Father and the mold for woman is Mother, so everyone can imprint himself or herself to those molds. However oddly shaped you may be, it doesn’t matter. The Unification Church will remake you and you can become a new person. You will be pressed down into the mold until you come out shining like Father or Mother.
By the installation of the True Parents we have a true family model for the first time in history. From that, it expanded to the tribe model; then the model should expand to the national, world and cosmic levels. From 1945 to 1988 it will be 43 years. Father has been working to create this model, starting from the family all the way to the universe and cosmos during these 43 years. I came to the United States to teach this model, and to show the people where true life and salvation lie so that this country would not perish. This is the pattern I have been walking: family model, tribal model, national model, worldwide model, cosmic model, all centering upon the love of God.
The movement of the True Parents is spreading from the center to the world and cosmos, but at the same time, the world is coming toward the center. When this cycle is completed, there shall be new seeds and a new core. Thus the new breed shall spring up throughout the world. No power can stop the spread of that new seed. When the era of the new seed has dawned, the spirit world and the archangelic world who were in the position to assist Adam and Eve in the beginning will have to come down here on earth. True Adam and Eve will be residing on the earth again and the angelic world will be working at full power to help the earthly dispensation.
The environment will begin to change. So far here on earth, the evil spirits have most grossly dominated the environment. But now all the good spirits, including the great saints, will be able to come down and help the movement of the True Parents go forward and spread the new seed. Furthermore, another phenomenon will occur- that of unification on every level. Everybody will be drawn to the center, desiring to unify. One God and one ideal world will become a central concept within the minds of all people. They will seek the unified culture within one world.
There are two most important aspects of unification: unification of language and lifestyle, and unification of love. All these aspects of the restoration process have begun through the effort of the True Parents. They were the pioneers in opening up all these gates. This is why no one can enter the Kingdom of Heaven without going through the True Parents.
It has taken me 43 years to accomplish this entire cycle, due to the incredible opposition I had to face on every level. But for you, the environment is changing and all the angelic world is coming down. Hostility is being transformed into welcome. Under such. circumstances, you can accomplish the cycle in less than seven years so that all will be connected. This includes the nation representing Adam, the nation representing Eve, the archangel nation as well as the satanic nation, which is the Soviet Union. All will be linked.
The goal of the Unification Church and Reverend Moon was made abundantly clear in 1976 – that is, to hold a rally in Moscow and liberate that land. That victory cannot be won by dropping a bomb on Moscow but only by our working hard in the United States. If this country is united and awakened to that goal of liberation, it can be achieved very quickly.
The Unification Church has the greatest teaching-the ideology of the Principle-which will overcome and destroy the ideology of communism. We have the moral principles that will liberate secular America and the world. That is the medicine with which we can immunize people against all social evils, such as drug abuse.
I see that there are persistent, most malevolent attacks continuing against the Unification Church and that is, in a way, like white blood cells trying to eat up the red cells. Satan has been doing that for the last 43 years. In response to such injustice, God is angry, and has allowed the release of the dreadful plague of AIDS upon mankind. That disease threatens to wipe out humanity unless they come to God. God’s side is moving forward with greater vigor, while the satanic side is beset with more and more problems, which they will not be able to solve unless they follow the way of Principle.
Can you go to some place such as Harlem, where there is so much suffering and crime, and be like a Pac-Man eating up all those terrible things? Can you do that? I would not hesitate to send you out to difficult places such as Harlem or Africa or anywhere suffering is persisting, because you could go and eat it up like Pac-Man.
I began my dispensational work from the Adam nation-Korea-and then went to Japan, the Eve nation. Then I came to America, which is the archangel nation. Ultimately when those three nations are united, we will go to Moscow, which is the core of Satan’s evil empire. By doing that, the entire world shall be liberated and united. That will be the external consummation of God’s will.
You must be trained according to my pattern, so you must be able to work in different countries. You will start in your own country, then go to another land, the sojourner’s land, then move to another and then another. Your mission should encompass four nations. Also you must be able to digest those countries culturally. First of all, you must learn more than one language. You must be able to take care of the people as their parents and raise them up, so that you can have spiritual children all over the world. Otherwise, you will not become a good citizen of the Kingdom of Heaven.
Missionaries have been sent out to more than 120 countries carrying True Parents’ ideal. They had to learn the language of those countries in order to teach heavenly tradition. In that way, the heart of the True Parents is spreading throughout the world. By the same token, as an individual, you have to set such a condition in order to follow in my footsteps. When you are in a foreign nation, it is most important that you be able to teach the people the mother tongue of the Kingdom of Heaven, as well as the model lifestyle of the True Parents. Unless you overcome the barriers in your life on earth, you will have to overcome them in spirit world.
Human responsibility has different levels-individual human responsibility, family human responsibility, tribal human responsibility, as well as national, worldwide and cosmic levels. The fallen world doesn’t have any gate; they have only chaos and confusion, so we have to establish the gate according to the True Parents’ tradition. This is why we have to move on each level and accomplish our responsibility.
Not only is the world without a gate, but Satan is trying to block the establishment of a gate. For example, Satan worked so hard to try to defile this nation before the True Parents had a chance to save it. The satanic forces wanted to destroy this nation before I came here, trying to eat it up. Now the time has come that all those people who are embodiments of individualism and secular humanism and materialism must come and repent before God on their knees.
Now you have to inherit my mission. The only difference between you and the True Parents is that when Mother and I began our work, there was no path ahead. We had to pioneer on every level and encounter opposition everywhere. But in your case, you have no opposition and the highway has already been laid by True Parents.
(Father begins speaking here in English.) We have already taken on all the persecution and now people around the world are looking up to us with respect. We have a professional organization all over the world, composed of highly intelligent people. The Unification ideology has been taught around the world.
Now if you are strong and stand up with great confidence and proclaim, “I have a teaching that will bring salvation to the world,” you will be able to move all four directions of the atmosphere. Why? It is because spirit world is helping so much now. Many thousands of your ancestors are following you and helping you. When you work with a serious attitude, you immediately receive assistance from them. No matter how difficult the situation you may encounter, you can overcome it with that kind of help.
God now has creation power. Satan can no longer accuse you when you stand up for God’s purposes. He has no more condition. There is no one in the whole world who can stop God’s work which we are doing. That is because of our powerful foundation. How will we move up from the tribal level to the national and world level?
The spirit world doesn’t sleep. They want to extend the foundation on the earth-your foundation. That is the purpose of God and the spirit world-all your ancestors. They are always looking to move forward, so how can they stop to take rest? You must understand clearly that this kind of atmosphere is constantly working for your benefit. Now that time has come.
So the cry is, “Move forward, march on!” Always God is giving us that kind of atmosphere. You have to have that kind of large viewpoint. How long has God worked to see the time which is now at hand, the time which we are dwelling in now? We must grab this moment and march forward with it. This is our mission. Do you follow me?
We must fulfill human responsibility, from the individual level to the family, tribe, nation and world. All areas need the fulfillment of that responsibility. That means the spirit world is helping you to fulfill. Now you know this clearly, right? No matter how difficult your situation may appear, you must always remember that you have the victorious formula which God has given to you. Why do you ever hesitate?
Don’t think you can be proud that you are a citizen of the great nation of America, or that you are a graduate of some university such as Harvard. God doesn’t need that kind of accomplishment and Satan doesn’t recognize or fear such a thing. All you need is to learn to embody God’s loving heart; that is the simple rule. Until now, people did not understand that point but through the teaching of True Parents, you have come to know this precisely. No one can change this truth, including the strongest forces of Satan. You must not doubt this.
You must make this foundation a part of your own tradition and customs. Do not listen to Satan’s temptations. Always say, “I decide what to do based on the teachings of True Parents from God.” You are carrying the banner of God’s love, so you must hold it up high and never let it fall to the ground or be stepped on. You have to stand up for God and True Parents, always asking this one question, “How can I inherit God’s true love?” How can you achieve this during your lifetime, not only within yourself but also your family, nation, world?
This is the most precious gospel. How precious? You can never buy such a thing, even with every asset the fallen world has to offer. Nothing in the world can be exchanged for this gospel. Within this simple teaching everything good and true can be obtained which the world is yearning for: ideal world, true relationship with God, God’s love. You know that clearly. Satan doesn’t like this at all but of course God welcomes it. That is why God wants us to work hard at this time so that we can bring the victory now.
Today is Parents’ Day and our topic includes our path as well. Today we have come to the poignant realization of the true meaning of Parents’ Day and we also must pledge ourselves to the ultimate fulfillment of God’s will and the True Parents’ wishes. Shall we do it? Thank you and God bless you.
Dr. Pak: Father spoke to you today in your native language and this is a great blessing. When the year 1990 comes, you must be able to listen to Father without an interpreter. Do you pledge that you will understand the true mother tongue by 1990? Let us pray.
