Benediction Declaring the Return of the Oceans to Heaven
Sun Myung Moon
Exact date not given.
Beloved Father, now is the time when the oceanic industry can have a secure foundation. Now that we have accomplished everything, we can reflect deeply upon the past days. Since commencing our ocean business in 1963, we have now come close to claiming the top position in the oceanic business on a worldwide level. As we look back upon the past days, when there were no children to comfort the heart of God, embracing the sea [i.e. to comfort God who was missing the time that His children could embrace the beauty of the sea without any inhibition] and to protect the natural items of the sea as their owners in this country, the True Parents came forward and undertook this task, traveling around the five seas. We have been living until now to see the day when God can string together all the gifts of the grace of blessing, which God wants to give to all people, together with the hope of humankind and of the True Parents, and offer them as the master of the heaven, earth, and all things. With all this, we have now come to Kodiak.
This is a historic place, where the Unification Church proclaimed the unforgettable Ceremony of Eight Stages and where the proclamation of the Parents of Heaven and Earth, True Parents, and the Doctrine of the Heavenly Parents brought about a great transformation of the world. From this historic origin, we are seeking to bring order to all the chaos and bring together the realm of the oceans and realm of dry land, thereby being acknowledged as the masters of heaven and the sea and finally as the masters of the land, and offering to heaven the sea and the land in a reciprocal relationship as plus and minus. Now with all the contents of the providential proclamations and teachings, we are taking the path back to Korea in four days. Our rallies in Korea for the unification of the South and North Koreas showed our members as a whole to be strong enough even to claim national sovereignty.
Please grant a blessing to our Unification people, who have been single-mindedly struggling and working hard to establish the standard of a country that can be home for the hope of God’s heart, stepping over the crying hopes and aspirations of the ruling and opposition parties of the Satanic world and of the rulers of the South and North Koreas.
The national messiahs of the Unification faith have been placed in Korea for four years to connect America, which is the elder son country, with the Northern and Southern Americas, thereby liberating the fatherland and establishing the global realm of reciprocation. The wives and sons and daughters of the national messiahs, on the other hand, have all been newly assigned to missions so as to keep the standard of the national messiah for the world. All such appointments are a strategy to tear down the final wall in order to accomplish and conclude Your will, which longs for the ideal realm of creation. Through this placement, they are to become one in heart and attain [the position of] Adam’s family without the fall, which can find a home in Your heart in the original Garden of Eden. And through this, as representatives of the family, tribe, nation, country, world and cosmos, they are to connect the foundation of the true love of liberation, meaning the original palaces of love, life, and lineage, to the infinite world.
I will visit Korea with the desire to receive Your permission to usher in the age of the unification of the South and North, in which we can announce a total settlement of our fatherland, the entire world, and heaven and earth in the realm of the True Parents’ heart.
As for the agreement proclaimed by the heads of the South and North, which has now emerged as a focus of the world’s attention, we Unification people should strive to make it bear fruit under God’s victorious authority, and seriously and truly seeing it as the final pinnacle of our course, we would like to plant God’s heart here with all our mind and body. Hence, please grant eternal victory, peace, glory, and honor to the will of the True Parents and the Parents of Heaven and Earth, who are going forward to find the day of the liberation of our fatherland.
From this time, when we have announced the day of the liberation of our fatherland and the day of the liberated Heavenly Kingdom on earth in Korea by means of new greetings, please remove the obstacles in the way of the heaven of the realm of the fourth Adam, demolish all the walls blocking the heavenly world and earthly world, and establish the realm of the liberation of hell, thereby liberating our fatherland, where we can settle down in the center of the earth, and complete the liberated Heavenly Kingdom and the heavenly world. We ardently plead with You for this.
Please accept this time, when we connect all the oceanic businesses of north and south Kodiak, and offer them to You. Please embrace the efforts of Korea, which desires to see the day of being able to connect the ocean and the land.
With the sources of life such as water, air and sunlight, with love of liberation, on the foundation of the family, which represents the whole, where You can find home, and on the foundation of the liberation of our fatherland, which represents the realm of the parents, all countries are trying to establish a respectable sovereign nation in the style of the United Nations by overcoming the sorrow of parents, True Parents, and the Parents of Heaven and Earth-a nation where we can express gratitude for liberation. All people should actively support this cause, become a member of a tribe of the Heavenly Kingdom on earth and the Heavenly Kingdom in heaven, and offer, to Your victorious authority of love, the sovereignty, people, and all things that have no shame before the heavenly sovereignty, thereby becoming the model for the whole, for eternity, and building a foundation for attaining the result aimed for. We sincerely pray that You will bless us to achieve this.
From now on, Your hope shall be fulfilled and things will proceed for the liberation of the fatherland. As we march through the United States, Russia, China, Pyongyang, and Korea with conventions, please take all our steps under Your responsibility and let the hopes of the True Parents be realized through these conventions we organize in the future. Allow them to be monumental events that open the door of the victorious Heavenly Kingdom. We sincerely plead with You for this.
In this age, when earth and heaven can become one, and hell and the Heavenly Kingdom can be one, the conscientious people whose original minds are alive should be united and establish the mainstream of the liberation of our fatherland, establish heavenly blood relationships, and harmonize all things of heaven and earth through the law of the cycle. They should thereby proceed for hundreds of millions of generations into the future world under the rule of love, which perfects freedom and liberation and the ideal of the Heavenly Kingdom on earth. We sincerely plead with You for this.
This morning, as we notify You of this, Father, at the point that commands the attention of the True Parents, Parents of Heaven and Earth, and all the created world, we earnestly hope that Your will triumphs to reveal the dignity and glory of heaven, and earnestly ask You to allow us to establish the sovereignty of love of the liberated Heavenly Kingdom in heaven.
I inform You, Father, of all this. I notify You that I have appointed the blessed people in heaven and the thirty-three people liberated from hell as the heads of their respective realms, and through this we have completed the system whereby we can bring into line the spiritual world all the way down to the intermediate level through Jesus, four great saints, and monarchs. Since everything starts from the spiritual world and is concluded on earth as the final place of settlement, please allow all the blessed people on earth and in heaven to unite as one mind and body and march forward toward the goal, and realize the realm of the liberation of the universe, thereby leading us to the world where the victory and glory of the Heavenly Kingdoms on earth and in heaven eternally overflow on the basis of the heavenly sovereignty of true love and the heavenly authority of ten thousand generations. We earnestly ask You for this.
This morning, please remember what we notify You of, and allow us the grace to march on and on into the world of Your all-transcendence, all-immanence, omnipotence and all-capability, where all the blessed people of conscience, the blessed ancestors in the heavenly world and the blessed families on earth can unite and freely move around with the sovereignty and authority of God. As I ask You for this, I proclaim this on this morning in the name of the True Parents. Amen! Amen! Amen!
Finally, as I have explained and prayed this morning, we are holding a ceremony to declare the return of the sea [to heavenly dominion]. The declaration of the return of the sea! Through this, all the evil spirits in the sea, who have been doing wicked things as they pleased, will be completely purged. After doing this, we must connect this to the land.
A UN-related organization has decided to present an award to True Parents. To receive an award in the name of the UN along with small children on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the Korean War has great significance. This is why we are giving a notepad to four hundred thousand children, honoring Mother’s achievement. Everyone will join in the fine arts contest.
If True Parents give awards to these children for the contest, this can lead to a good network whereby the parents of the 400 thousand children throughout the world can be all connected together. You should remember that our path leads toward such an important turning point.
