Declaration of the Era of Family Kingship
Sun Myung Moon
October 27, 2000
At 7 o’clock in the morning of October 27, 2000 (the first day of the tenth month by the lunar calendar) Rev. Moon declared the Era of Family Kingship.
Beloved Father, today, we are celebrating the forty-first True Children’s Day, after forty full years. While the spiritual world celebrates today, centering on the Parents of Heaven and Earth, we would like to proclaim this day as a day of joy and day of the morning sun, a day when we will perform a great ceremony of conversion to endow the title of children to all the descendants of Adam and Eve and create a new relationship of parent and child on earth; therefore, Father, please accept the entire ceremony of this day with joy.
We have entered the age when we must firmly establish, based on the victory of the Parents of Heaven and Earth, a country ruled by love before Your heart, which has to embrace and love Satan and his followers, and the age when we must go into the world transcending the level of the nation; in this age, we would like to initiate a day when we, by restoring Your ideal of creation and as Your second heir with the qualification of children, can serve You as the True Father, while the United Nations, oceans, lands, the earth, and the heavenly world are unified to protect the life of Your children. Please allow us this as we begin this day.
Father, since now is the age when all things in the heavenly world, all things on earth, and all people who have had a blood relationship with You can move towards the unified world of Your sovereignty transcending countries, the world, religion, and all borders, please accept this as a time to establish the ownership that can qualify all things on earth to serve and belong to Your children and qualify the children You have regained to be worthy of Your loving embrace.
Through this, please allow this to be the time to welcome and bless the age during which we can lay the worldwide cornerstone for the liberation of the nation of heavenly sovereignty by proclaiming the return of the oceans, return of the lands, return of the cosmos, return of the realm of heart of the fourth Adam, and return of the original ideal, by connecting the oceanic world, island nations, peninsular nations, and continental nations, and by standing in the position higher than that of having fulfilled all our plans towards the unified physical world, including the unification of the South and North.
All humanity should attain the liberated realm of blessing in which to serve Heaven as the True Parents and enter the age of the realm of blessing of the fourth Adam; and should become able to serve God as the absolute, unique, and unchanging True Father by restoring the mother and child relationship in every family and by entering the age of restored father and son in which to establish an ideal father and child relationship. Please allow that through this, all the human descendants on this earth become Your blood kin and create families of Your dutiful sons and daughters by liquidating all their mistakes so far and pledging to follow the path of filial piety.
This is the day when You rule over the entire universe in the liberated position of the True Father, going beyond all the remaining conditions of sorrow and entrusting everything to the True Parents and Heung Jin in the heavenly world. Today we would like to have time to gather as Your children, make a new determination and declare our intention to serve Heaven. We eagerly desire that You be present here to preside over the entire ceremony and allow this forty-first True Children’s Day to be established as a day to commemorate this declaration to the universe.
Under Your grace, and in the realm of unification and liberation of the nation of sovereignty through Your love, all our family members desire to stand as children of Your direct lineage who can fulfill the way of a dutiful child, the way of a patriot, and the way of saints and holy sons and daughters, and want to offer You all that we own in the cosmos; we eagerly desire that with the condition of accepting this, You allow the transition of the age to be one in which You can embrace Your children as family members of Your lineage.
Through this, please open the gate to the place where we can celebrate the love between parent and child in a united heaven and earth, and make this the point of initiation from which we can tear down all the walls in the spiritual world and on earth and march towards the age of the bright light of love shining over all of heaven and earth. We sincerely beseech You. As we offer all this in this holy ceremony, I pray and declare that You will accept this in the name of the True Parents. Amen! Amen! Amen!
Now that everyone has bowed, let me say a few words. Today marks the fortieth full year of the True Children’s Day, and October of this year also has to be the last month because it is the month of blessing and liberation… This year, with the fortieth anniversary of the True Children’s Day, we should completely establish the relationship of parents and children. This is why today’s celebration of True Children’s Day is meaningful.
God and humanity have failed to form a parent-child relationship, and True Parents have been working to establish that relationship. From where should this be resolved? It begins from your blessed families. Do you understand this? Blessed families should start serving God as Father and serve the True Parents as the ancestors of humanity. You should be a family that can serve the internal and external Parents and inherit love, life, and lineage; through serving and inheriting, the root that can raise the conscience straight and level becomes firmly settled in at a ninety degree angle in the family.
Who is God? Adam is the ancestor of the family and root of the family. So remember that from today, the Parents of Heaven and Earth will reign as king and queen of the family, do you understand? So far, there has been no king in the family. In the future, the family king should receive the throne of the national king and of the cosmic king. You should know that only through this is it possible for the original realm of the ideal Heavenly Kingdom to be connected. All this is for the sake of kingship.
Since kingship has oneness of blood with the love of True Parents and of the Parents of Heaven and Earth, its root, trunk, and buds grow with the same life, same elements, and same nutrition. They are growing together. This is why as the reign of the family king begins, it is connected to that of the national king, after which it is connected to that of the king of the world; now is the time of entering the heavenly registration list.
Since we have paid all indemnity and returned to the original point the realm of heart of the fourth Adam for the age of the ocean, age of the land, and age of the universe, we have now entered the age of original settlement, and thus the children and Parents should become one and decide on the day of settlement of the family beyond the forty-year hill. So you should remember that today is when the Parents of Heaven and Earth finally come to reign as the family king and queen. You should participate in the ceremony with such an understanding.
Hence, in your daily life, you should attend True Parents centered on the picture of True Parents in your home. This is not the style of a particular church or country; it is from your family that God’s will for the church, for the country, and for the world begins. You should make a new beginning as a family that has inherited such a standard of lineage. It is only through this your entry on the heavenly registration list and settlement is possible.
Now we are performing the registration ceremony. Now, the families that have registered will proceed to the age in which to attend the Heavenly Parents as king and queen. Do you understand this? I am trying to connect the realm of the sea, realm of the land, and realm of heaven, because we must conclude all this before the end of October. You should know that you must see everything as the age of equalization.
There cannot be a difference between a particular advanced country or a backward country. A uniform standard of equality has to be realized in life and in the environment. Unification has to spread throughout the world. What does that mean? It means that all blessed families start living lives in which they can attend the king of the families.
As the history of restoration of the four-position foundation through the baby, parents, and ancestors takes place in the family, you should become an exemplary family that is connected only to God’s love and create a home in which to serve the Parents of Heaven and Earth as king and queen. This way, this home will serve the king in the future, and this country will serve the king of heaven and earth, thereby transforming every corner of the world into the Heavenly Kingdom on earth and the Heavenly Kingdom in heaven based on a unified realm and the standard of the blood lineage. Today is the day that this transformation starts, and you should attend this ceremony with a clear understanding of this, do you understand?
You do not have your own possessions-your things, your country or your self. The only thing you have is your family. After establishing love in your family, your self becomes connected to it through the value that conforms to the fundamental standard of that love. The entire universe becomes one centering on one core, and your family should stand in the position of this core, loving all things and becoming their owner to eat and digest them, for they are created through God’s love and exist for your sake. This way, your family should form the realm of oneness through love before God, becoming able to be absorbed and to absorb. You should feel that your family is like a model, settled, and original cornerstone that serves such Parents of Heaven and Earth, who are the king and queen.
You do not serve the king in someone else’s family; you should live such a life that you feel that you have the Parents of Heaven and Earth as king and queen in your own home-for your entire life. In the hoondok sessions, you should have such a consciousness and set an example of a life of attendance before your children. Otherwise, you will not be able to say, “I pray in the name of so and so, a blessed family member that has inherited True Parents’ realm of victory through the blessing.” You should say, “It is so and so, representing my family, which has inherited the victorious authority over all” while serving them as king and queen, and only then will your prayer be in the right. What is the realm of victorious authority? It is kingship. We should live with the consciousness that our family is the first family to serve God, the Parents of Heaven and Earth, and the king. The 36 blessed couples, the 72 blessed couples all have to do this.
This is why I disbanded the church. Based on this standard. We have not had the structure of a nation until now. The Korean nation’s structure of province, city, town, village is not a real structure. It is just a formality. It is just to be able to control the people. However, this age has passed. You have to acknowledge that your family is a family which has to establish the standard and tradition of attending the Cosmic King.
This has to start from the Family Federation. I mean this. That is why the families that have registered have to inherit completely the ideal of creation which the Cosmic Parents have created and realize it in their own families.
The eternal country and cosmos which will be able to be connected to the spring of love starts from here. You have to live your life having this kind of consciousness.
From now you don’t have to discuss anything. You know everything. You have to study the Divine Principle and all the truth that I have spoken throughout my life, and live a life that corresponds to this.
You must not allow your life, your family, your country or the world to get tangled. You must not allow the fundamental standard to become corrupted in any way. You have to understand this.
The kingship of the Parents of Heaven and Earth will be liberated in it’s entirety only when the family king is elevated to the tribal king, national king, king of the world, king of heaven and earth, and beyond. Liberation of the ages of the individual, family, tribe, nation … and age of eternity will take place.
That is why I took down the Unification Church sign. Now we are the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification. Peace means that everything horizontal. Your conscience has to become like a tranquil lake. It is from there that you can connect with the vertical. There is only one vertical. There is only one center. What does vertical mean? Centering on Adam’s ancestry is vertical.
As you realize the horizontal and vertical centering on your grandfather and grandmother, on your father and mother, on you and your spouse, and on your sons and daughters who are the growing roots, the ideal of creation is realized. The ideal of creation is realized when the grandfather loves his grandson, when the father loves his sons and daughters. The blood lineage which God was unable to connect to has for the first time been connected through your family. The three generations have to be connected.
The grandfather symbolizes the Old Testament. We are still in the realm of this age historically. We are still in the realm of this age. Adam also is still in the realm of this age. We don’t have a nation or the world yet. We are starting from now through the family. You must go beyond your family, nation, and world and make the relationship of parent and child through which you will be able to establish the bond of love in place of God.
You have to become the united husband and wife holding onto this dearly. By connecting it to your children you form a trinity.
Centering on the realm of a trinity which is above and below, front and back, left and right, the traditional family which can attend God as the King appears. You have to realize that your own family is one of a kind.
From now on, there should be no one who is not blessed. Also in Korea at this time, we must make sure by all means that there is no one who is not blessed. The unmarried men and women, whether they are in a Kim family, Park family, Kwak family, or other families, should be led to the blessing, so that they are entered into the heavenly registration list instead of being sent to hell. For the sake of this heavenly name list, you should bring anyone by strong persuasion, even, for example, your elder brother who has left the country and has not yet been registered.
You must know this. There was a struggle over the body of Moses and that of Jesus in order that not even the corpse would remain in the satanic world. The families that have such a traditional standard as their core should come together with families of the world that are not blessed and digest them. This way, they should connect the root of their tribal standard with the original realm of heart of the True Parents. Unless you become such an original family of tradition worthy to be grafted onto the family of the True Parents, the family king will be unable to progress to the national king.
By fulfilling your duty as a filial son or daughter you have to be able to have three dimensional authority in order for the way to inherit the tradition of patriotism to be opened. Until now we cannot say that the Unification Church members have been part of God’s family. From now you have to live a serious life as part of God’s family, as though you were actually attending True Parents in your everyday life. You have to educate your children strictly in this tradition. There cannot be any other way. I can see a time coming when people who don’t put this into practice will get sick. If you fall, you will have to live a life separated from everyone else, as though you were in quarantine. This age is coming. So you have to make sure you don’t make a mistake.
The main problem is that of men and women. Next, the misuse of public funds. You have to think that people who steal the national assets, the company workers who cause loss to their company, or people who don’t want to use the country’s assets for the benefit of the country but for their own party, will become people who establish wicked national boundaries and offerings to Satan.
Everything has to start on the foundation of the family. Now everything has become flat; there is nowhere that I cannot go. Because the boundaries have disappeared, there is nowhere that I cannot go. We have entered the realm of liberation in which, wherever True Father goes, he will be attended as the King of the Families by all the people in that country. You have to know that we have to go beyond the standard of the earthly countries. Centering on the Kingship; on the foundation of the Kingship of the Cosmos, based on this standard, the realm of liberation can be opened for God and True Parents.
What does no. 8 in the family pledge say? Our family, centering on true love, pledges, as we enter the Completed Testament Age, to achieve the ideal oneness of God and humankind in love through absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience, thereby perfecting the realm of liberation of the Kingdom of God on Earth and in Heaven. What is the meaning of the Completed Testament Age? It is the age of settlement of the family. The hope of the Old Testament was to attend God as the Parent and as the King, as the King of the cosmos. However, the chosen people went and violated this. The Age of the Completed Testament is the age of the Lord of the Second Advent who comes centering of the Christian cultural realm, as the King of the family, as the King of the nation and as the King of the world in order to liberate God from His sorrow.
The perfection of the world and the perfection of the nation starts with the family. You have to establish a tradition that can be passed down through your blood lineage to your descendants for eternity. It doesn’t matter what sacrifice you have to make, you have to do this. If you don’t have the determination to leave this tradition to your family, you are not entitled to inherit the tradition of having attended the king. You have to clearly understand this. You have to know that the words that I am speaking now will be your standard of judgment when you go into the spiritual world. It is the same as reading the judgment verdict. You cannot live your family life in any old fashion. The debt of the father or the debt of the children becomes the debt of the clan. The descendants have to pay back that debt.
You were born to help others. You were born to pay back this debt and live for others. You were not born for yourself. The clan has to punish the child who lives for himself only. They will have to isolate him in the North or South Poles. This time will come. If you make a mistake, you won’t be able to live in your own village. There won’t be anything like registration again. You have to understand this clearly. I am explaining to you that there will be no forgiveness again.
So this 40th True Children’s Day has a special significance. The same is true for True Parents’ Day, isn’t it? In this year, which is the year which goes beyond the forty years, you have to be aware that God becomes the origin and you stand in the position where you can follow your parents vertically or horizontally in the realm of free liberation where it is sure that you are God’s son, where it is sure that you serve God as your Father as filial sons and daughters. What is the Fall? The fact that you have not become filial sons and daughters of God is the Fall. True Parents have come and you have been taught this for the first time.
I have been carrying the torch in my hand, going towards the center, establishing this tradition of lightening the way of duty towards heaven. Fulfilling your responsibility to connect the individual center to the family, the family center to the nation center, the nation center to the world center, the world center to the cosmic center all the way to God’s throne is the way to find your own happiness.
Realize resolutely that this way is the central current and remember this day as the day you started out along this path, completely changing your old habitual lifestyle and starting on a new level.
You should have this kind of attitude about the family pledge as well. You have to recite the family pledge bearing this in mind. What is the purpose of the family pledge? It is to become the master who can serve the king of the families and restore the lost Parents of Heaven and Earth.
What is no. 2 in the Family Pledge? It is to fulfill your duty of filial piety, of patriotism, of saintliness and your duty as divine sons and daughters. Then what is no. 3? It is the duty to inherit the reality of the spirit world and establish it on the Earth. In no. 4 you have to perfect God’s ideal of creation in your family and bring about unification centering on the four conditions, namely freedom, peace, unity, and happiness. What’s no. 5? You have to bring about Unification centering on the spirit world. Everything is known in the spirit world. You have to strive every day to advance the unification of the spirit world and the physical world. You are going towards unification, you are advancing towards unification, and then you are accelerating this development. You are going forward with a stick in order to do this more quickly. In countries like America they are saying this and that about human rights, but what are human rights?
The right to love God and to establish the tradition of love in the family is a cosmic right. America is the nation that has forgotten human rights and protected those who destroy the family. If things are not right then they have to be corrected, even if it means using some punishment. You have to put things right when people are still growing. People are not allowed to do as they please. All the evil things in society have to be cleaned up completely. This is why we need a Heavenly Law which can correct all these things.
Boundaries which can separate good and evil do not exist at the moment. We need to create this kind of law and centering on it; we need the unified horizontal line centering on the ideal of the family which has perfected the Old Testament, New Testament and Completed Testament ages, we need to be able to travel freely wherever we want to go. Centering on your family, you need to be able to go wherever you want to in this world.
Adam and Eve’s hope was to establish God’s sovereignty of love and become the king and queen. You have to think about the Divine Principle and live your lives according to it. You mustn’t become people who don’t accomplish anything.
You can’t say anything if you haven’t fulfilled your mission. Not succeeding in anything is circumstances set up by Satan. It can lead to bad things happening. The parents, children, everyone has to go out. That’s why I sent out all my children, so that they can grow up into becoming people of character and only then will I ask them to return home. It is the same for you, too. Now I have bequeathed to you everything that I can. As I have bequeathed everything to you, I want you to stand in the same position as my children and make a family which can fulfill the duty of filial sons and daughters, serving the parents and serving the king. After you become a filial family which can be accepted by the nation, you have to connect your family to the nation, complete the dutiful way of patriots, then the dutiful way of saints, and then the dutiful way of divine sons and daughters. Then you have to become a victorious central family representing Heaven and Earth.
Making the individual, family, clan, tribe, nation, world your center, inheriting the victorious realm of kingship and standing in front of God, you should become the representative who has completed the ideal realm of kingship which is the hope of God in every aspect of life. When you first go to the spirit world, centering on whether or not you have received the right of inheritance, whether or not you have become part of God’s royal family that will decide whether or not you have become children who can serve and attend God’s loving children in His direct family.
You have to know clearly that your whole life is a preparation period in which you check whether or not you have the right to receive the inheritance in Heaven. And I hope that you live your lives not deviating from this path even an inch. I have lived for eighty years following the law and protocol of Heaven every single day. You have to know this. I want to ask you to make a special effort to live this kind of life.
Now we are entering an age when I can rule over your families. Isn’t this so? When you have a king in your family, you will have to follow him. Do you understand? Family kings will have to follow the national king. They are the citizens of the country. Next, when he rises to the worldwide level, national kings should serve him. Next, the world king must lay the foundation of the king of saints, after which he returns to the heavenly throne. This is the sovereign country of restoration, unification, and heart. The sovereign country in the form of kingship, do you understand? You should know this clearly.
From now on, only the constitution and law will judge sins, determine victory and defeat, and determine existence and destruction. If you live for the sake of others, you will be able to overcome all laws, while living for your own sake will make you stumble everywhere. In serving True Parents, if you do it for your own sake, you will stumble, and heaven and earth will be united against you. If a husband and a wife only serve themselves, all exchanges between the east and west will be stopped. Everything that flows like air and water, will all be blocked. Love flows even more freely than air or water. It can flow wherever there is a leak, but when you demand that your self be served, then it becomes blocked. Hence, understanding this, you should establish from your own self a family tradition of living for the sake of others.
You have become the branches and leaves of True parents family and become the representatives of the family, nation and race in order to inherit and become part of Heaven’s kingship. The people who do this are God’s loving partners, His sons and daughters who resemble God and who can represent God’s authority and stimulate love wherever they go.
I am telling you the truth. Remember this day and don’t live as you please from now on. In the future, when the law is established and a country is made, we might cut away all the evil things in the blood lineage. They will be torn up and cast out. These things are the enemy of God and humankind. You should not be people who live only for yourself, who cause loss to the nation or who harm the creation. You have to leave Satan’s dirty palace.
You have to be able love the creation, live for it, and help it. Everything in the universe exists for you. You have to love the eternal universe which God has given to us. You have to love it in place of God. All of creation will sacrifice itself to the loving master. Everything in creation was born for this purpose, lives for this purpose and dies for this purpose. That is why all of creation will follow the loving master.
You will be able to take the things you love on this earth with you to the spiritual world. You can make it continue to exist in the spiritual world. You have the right to make anything you love continue to exist in the spirit world. The spirit world is the place where you can inherit the right of the princes and princesses of Heaven and have the power to recreate anything you want in the place of God. Amen!
I have become the king of the families. I have become the king of my family. You have to say the family pledge thinking that this is the day of a new beginning, the day that you start attending such parents, living together with them night and day. You have to have a different attitude when you say the family pledge. You shouldn’t just mumble it. You have to think that you will become a person who lives the pledge so that you become a person who has nothing that can hold you back wherever you may go. You have to say the pledge declaring it so that you feel resolved to fulfill it so that the Parents of Heaven and Earth and the whole of Heaven and Earth cannot help but be excited when they hear you. It is a declaration, a declaration. You have to live like this every day.
Now, you should establish the pattern of a family. You should form a four-position foundation, and three families should unite to save one family that is in ruin; you have such a responsibility. That is the four-position foundation. Our Unification Church has now come into an age of good heavenly fortune.
Dear loving Father, in the flowing of time, all living things in the cosmos should respond to the pulse of Your ideal love. That love that characterized Your ideal at the Creation. All living beings are nothing less than Your own flesh and blood, the essence of Your bones, the essence of Your flesh. Our ancestors should have been completely one with You at the root of eternal love and the origin of life, but because of their mistake, the history of sorrow and pain began. We, the children of the Unification Church, know that every single day throughout history You wanted to forget that the fall had ever happened. In the name of True Parents, we have brought the realm of unification between Catholics and Protestants in this land to realize Your ardent wish. Mother, representing the Holy Spirit, gave birth to children because of the historical pain and sorrow of Your not having been able to realize the ideal of oneness between the original mother and children. Instead, the relationship was divided and destroyed. In order to cut off the chains of sorrow and to fill up the hollow place, Cain and Abel, who had been separated, should be united. The separation of the family, the nation, the world and the cosmos should come to an end. The entire cosmos was divided into heaven and hell. With a heart of pain and sorrow, the origin of historical sorrow and pain, You had to take care of all matters related to heaven and earth all alone, alone, alone, without a single soul to discuss them with. Please Father, I sincerely pray that you will forgive the impiety and disloyalty of all humanity who didn’t recognize True Father, the master of the original love of the entire cosmos.
I have come to this earth in the name of a True Parent. I’ve come here representing this family of Yours, but I haven’t fully satisfied your expectations. I feel ashamed of myself whenever I stand up before You. The stream of evil history, the filthy water invading all families and individuals has continued to flow in between those on the left and right of the political spectrum. We know how evil Satan has been until now at having humanity cut off from True Parents.
You’ve allowed Satan’s every request. You have endured great suffering in Your heart with the hope of seeing the last day. Humanity should have comprised true men and true women; they should have created families of true love in the original garden of love, but families have become the bottom of a barrel filled with dirty water. As your son, I know so well how great Your pain was at having to traverse sorrow and pain, in which true love could not even have been dreamt of.
Looking back, my life seems like a dream to me. I’m in my eighties.
I know that as True Father, I have to effect the final healing of six thousand years of history in line with Heaven’s wish at this time[*em]after having passed through the first two thousand years since Jesus, entering the new millennium and heading to the year 3000.
I’ve gone through all sorts of hardships and privations in order to pass through the gauntlet to individual perfection, family level perfection, tribal perfection and the national and global levels by setting up the right standard. I’ve created the groundwork all peoples can freely adopt. So much time passed while I fought. I was thinking that Your heart of hope had sunk deep down in the ocean in loneliness and solitude.
As I head toward the grand ocean, the grand ocean of freedom under Your protection and supervision, and look at the land where the satanic borderlines have been broken down, the unity of Your wish, the new absolute authority that had never existed in the history of all peoples has come true. Although You created all of heaven and earth, You couldn’t intervene in Your own children’s lives. You couldn’t be who You really were. Father of all humanity, looking back at the history of the unification church, I’m ashamed of myself. Father, You know my heart so well. I’ve gone through difficulties all by myself in following You, and here I am.
Heavenly Father, in this year we are finally able to indemnify everything, and deal with both the spirit world and the physical world, thereby breaking down all the barriers that exist between the two worlds. We hope and pray that this day on which we can make the declaration to the eternal world will not be just another passing day, but the milestone of the complete settlement on earth, the memento and monument of our victory in breaking down barriers, which the people and their descendants in the whole spirit world and the physical world can honor and respect eternally. Now the traditional ideology of True Parents have already settled down as a realm of the culture of life in the unified world with no barriers, and the external environment has thus been restored, but the internal standards have not been met before. Therefore, on this day the True Parents, with firm resolve, are making the final agonizing declaration to achieve our goal.
Moreover, it has been more than forty years since the establishment of True Parents’ Day and True Children’s Day, and now we are able to start another 40-year course tomorrow. The beginning of serving the parents of heaven and earth and God as a liberated and independent being was to be from Adam’s family to the tribe, race, nation and the world. In human history, Adam’s family must start the new era as the owners of the kingship of love who will bear the token of God’s victorious love in His garden, and suffer on His behalf. But we know that True Parents alone cannot organize for the registration and entry into the era, and so the True Family, in connection with the four True Children in the spirit world including Heung Jin, have taken over the responsibility and made the declaration.
Therefore please allow the positions of True Parents and Heung Jin in the spirit world to become one, and help those blessed by True Parents not to be lost. Now that the parents and sons and daughters, both in the spirit world and the physical world, are responsible for making the preparations, please let the blessed families, who are allowed to enter the new era on this foundation, remember the great value of it and the how indebted they are to God and the True Parents.
On this True Children’s Day, first celebrated more than forty years ago, we declared to all that the kingship of families had begun, with the True Parents, the Parents of Heaven and Earth, as king. We have all made a firm resolution to attend them as king and to work with them 24 hours a day in the same environment with them, so that we can live as the future princes and princesses who will inherit their kingship. Heavenly Father, please remember this day, and our resolutions, and accept our pledge.
Now there is no one who can be responsible for the complaints. Adam’s family alone must become the successor of God, the founders of God’s nation, and become sons and daughters who can establish kingship in place of the victorious God as he re-creates the spirit world and the physical world once more. We now make the announcement that we will become such sons and daughters, so that we can inherit the victory of the Parents of Heaven and Earth, establish the realm of kingship in heaven, and the realm of the royal family, and finally march forward to the era in which the unified environment can settle down both in the spirit world and the physical world for all ages to come.
We also declare that everything and everyone created by Your hands now stands in the presence of Your sovereignty of love as Your kith and kin. We hope and pray that You will allow Satan’s clan still left in the spirit world to be confronted by the good ancestors, so that they can fulfill the responsibilities of judges in dealing with the evil spirits. We also pray that You will allow the victory over the evil spirits to be connected to the start of a new family, and the substantial foundation of their victory to become an established law that will reach even the eternal world.
True Parents came to earth and established the religious realm, completed the blessings and wishes to restore families, and are now in charge of all the people both in the spirit world and the physical world, transcending national boundaries, as their parents. Still left to be fulfilled are the responsibilities for establishing the traditional path to the Kingdom of Heaven on earth, in which You, God, can be attended as king, as well as the re-organizing both the spirit world and the physical world. Heavenly Father, allow us to start anew in order to fulfill these missions, so that everything can be accomplished and our one-way path will lead us to victory. Please be with us as we carry out the blessed ceremonies.
The foundation of victorious supremacy will be bequeathed to all human beings, who stand liberated as the direct descendants of God, and they will also receive the blessing and form families who can inherit the kingship established by True Parents, the Parents of Heaven and Earth, by establishing the objective standard on the horizontal level. Please allow us to have the conviction that we will become a part of the lineage of God, who will pass on the life and eternal traditions of the lineage, and allow us to have the heart to be faithful to this conviction so that starting from individuals we can influence families and the world eternally.
Allow us to become families who are able to defend the position of the owners, centered on the victorious kingship of the Parents of Heaven and Earth with one mind and one body, as well as the position of the absolute owners of families who can inherit the kingship, so that we can connect them with the positions of the owners of the tribes, races, nations, world and the cosmos automatically. Allow us to become families who are able to absorb and welcome all this with a faithful heart, and who can inherit the blessing from God as families who will guide the realm of liberation and victory in the entire world, who will be beloved by the Parents of Heaven and Earth, and who will inherit the grace of the blessing from them. We declare on this day to become a part of Your direct blood lineage, and to fulfill all the things mentioned above as families. Heavenly Father, please bless us so that the blessed families can be united into one and serve True Parents as ideal families as You desire.
We hope and pray that even heaven and the earth will be moved, and filled with the praise and victory of liberation that will be connected to the victorious supremacy of heaven. I report this in the name of True Parents, and declare the settlement of True Parents’ family and the beginning of families in the era of the kingship. Let everything be done as You will. Amen! [Amen!] Amen! [Amen!] Amen! [Amen!]
When you pray in your family you should say, “in the name of a central blessed family,” Do you understand? Please teach members to say that when they pray in their family. They are the center of the world and of heaven and earth. Since the ways of a dutiful child, a patriot, a saint, and a holy son or daughter have emerged through the historical ages, you can represent them all…
The central people who are blessed are the father and the son, and they become one with the king. Father should give the blessing, and everyone should be worthy of the blessing. Do you understand? When the blood lineage is correctly established, everyone can automatically follow. Now is the time we do this for the country. In every country, we should become the kind of families never seen before in history.
You should understand how fearful a thing this registration is. This is not something that will come and go. What of the three ages? Now is a great transition. History is turning a complete circle at a great transition, and it is through the settlement of the family that the Old Testament Age, New Testament Age, and Completed Testament Age are completed. Family settlement is the settlement of kingship. Do you understand this? It is neither democracy nor communism but the settlement of kingship. The settlement of kingship means settlement of the kingship of love.
The great transition of the three ages, four-position foundation…What’s next? The registration of the four-position foundation. And next? It is the ceremony of unification and blessing. These are all included. The four-position foundation enters is registered on the heavenly list, in three stages. If God is the first generation, Adam and Eve are the second generation, and yet the third generation has not been connected.
What was the fall? It was the blood lineage going wrong. The three generations were lost because the blood lineage went wrong. This is a huge problem. What should have grown into a true olive tree ended up as a wild olive tree. This is why the history of restoration is taking place. The history of restoration starts with the three generations centering on God’s flesh and blood. The three stages give birth to sons and daughters by connecting to the new blood lineage of blessing and this goes to the global level. In the realm of three generations, each one has the same value. If you see this vertically, God is the first generation, my father and mother, the parents, are the second generation, and I myself am the third generation. Expansion starts from the third generation…
From now on, each of you is starting your own clan, from among your own acquaintances and relatives. The problem at hand is how to protect and preserve this pure bloodline. From now on, maintaining the pure bloodline is paramount. Didn’t the Jews stone to death anyone who had defiled their clan?
The time has come for me to seek my homeland. The time has come for me to have land of my own, and head a family. In other words, it is time for me to reorganize everything, and it’ll have to start with my own family. I’ll start from Hyo Jin, and thereby start a new tradition.
When you were blessed, whether you and your spouse are from the 36-couple group or some other, does not matter now. What you have to do now is to serve the parents of heaven and earth as the king, and prepare for the era of the complete settlement individually, so that you can establish the tradition of the royal family. Isn’t that why the Unification Church changed its name on April 10 of the year before last?
So everything will be over once we have restored a country. Korea has a great responsibility. We have to establish a country within the next four years. We should ask mothers to work for the establishment of the country. Mothers and the second generation must do it. Now is time when the second generation stand in the front. But do not think in comfortable terms. You should work as soldiers on the front line. You should coach your mothers. When a mother has gone beyond restoring the country, you should inherit her tradition and stand in the position to continue your father’s lineage. Do you understand this?
The mother and children must be ones who stand in such a position in order to bring back the father, who was chased out. In other words, they can bring back Adam. It is the same with you. Now, you can attend me by restoring the nation. You can attend me by becoming one as a couple and making unity with your children. Do you understand this? You must become one with your own father in order that the vertical axis emerges centered on the family on earth.
We must hold the registration ceremony, but who should register? Eve should register first. It was Eve and Cain who destroyed the registration in the beginning. That is why the son and the mother have to become one. If the mother does not become one with her son, she cannot give love to anyone. The wives cannot give love to their husbands.
What did I say just now? The mother has to become one with the son. She cannot meet her husband, the father, unless she becomes one with her son and puts him forward before her. The mother was chased out. And the mother in turn chased out the father. So unless she becomes one with her son, there is no way she can meet the father. That is why I say she cannot give love to her husband. That is how the law works.
Therefore, she must be isolated. Your father is in the realm of the archangel, and he does not have a nation. He could not pass through the realm of Israel. He could not restore the nation and the world. The external standards have already been fulfilled. Even if you do not follow, my path is cut in front of me, and it will not be destroyed. It’s settled.
Among all the families in the world, if there is even one family that will follow me, I can continue down my path unhindered by the others. That is why I’m declaring this today. You know what the declaration is for today, don’t you? Who am I? I am the king of the blessed families in the world, the king of families. There is no one else who can be in charge of families. There cannot be a second or a third king. There is no one among presidents, renowned scholars and the like who can come and meddle with the ideology of the family. It is absolute, unique, unchanging and eternal. Shouldn’t it be like that? Of course that is the way it should be. This is very serious.
Because I was the very person who had to set such a tradition, I could not recklessly. Those who are close to me know that. I’m not a reckless person in any way. If I had not been careful, everything would have been lost long ago. Following the path full of turns and twists, I never wavered, because I had to set the principles of restoration through indemnity as a tradition. My path was the path of the cross. I did not ask for it, but I had to bear it. You must love your enemies. It is the same thing.
When you join the unification church, you are in the position of Eve’s successor in regards to me. You are in the positions of the younger brother and the betrothed at the same time. When the era of betrothal passes, the era of the wife begins. This is then followed by the era of the mother. Then it will be the era of the grandmother, and finally the era of the king. That is why you must love Rev. Moon. You cannot turn back.
It is the same for all of you. Even now, that is the way it should be. Wives who do not obey what their husbands say will be thrown into the trashcan. There can be freedom only when you have a nation. That is the way it is. If you cannot fulfill your responsibilities, I’ll cut off Korea for good. I will never cast my eyes on you or your clans ever again.
Currently I am in the process of repairing and refurbishing a nice house in Uruguay for my use. In order to repair and refurnish a house that has already been built, you must put more effort than was expended in building it into making it better than it originally was. People call that house Rev. Moon’s house, don’t they? But I do not live there. You, the members of the Unification Church should build a palace, starting from the foundation. The second and third generations of our church should build the palace.
You must prepare the ground for the palace and build a palace fit for the king to come and live in. It is a God-given task of the fallen descendents on earth to shed their blood and walk the path of repentance. You cannot do that half-heartedly. If I could have lived a moderate life, why do you think I have lived the way I have? Every cent I earned has been given back to the world.
Japan thinks that the external blessing, the material blessing they received from the Western civilization for forty years is their own. If they do not shift all of that and make an empty space, if they do not put their own effort into making their own things, if they do not work hard to make what they received from others as their own by devoting their own energy and effort into doing so, there will be no place left for Japan in the world.
As a Unification Church member, you cannot consider your possessions, your house, and other belongings as belonging to you. Now there is nothing. How can you inherit kingship in your family? You cannot think that your family is the realm of independence. There is nothing your self desires; when you fail to walk the central course to establish your country, you cannot desire anything that is greater. Do you understand this?
From now on, although I may not be here any more, or talk about Hoon Dok Hae any more, you should still keep it eternally in your family. You must save your relatives, tribe, and village. You should visit the village and invite the people for Hoon Dok Hae. You should fulfill the responsibility this way to make connections. Gone is the age when you can sit comfortably and live your life. We must equalize the four directions. Whether we like it or not, we must do it. You will be restrained if you do not do this. At this point, that is the only thing I have left to do. We must do it no matter how difficult it is. We must go to North Korea and show the tradition and ideal of the Unification Church. We cannot go back even a step, because we have been dedicating ourselves for fifty years…
From now on, there may not be celebrations like this, where everyone gathers. Instead, the members of your clans will gather. For instance, all the Kims will come together at the house of the Kim clan and hold celebrations there.
That is why you should have your own True Parents’ Day. Since I became the True Parent on the global level, and on the cosmic level, you should have a True Parents’ Day for your own clan. The true parents in each clan will be like a branch of True Parents. Collectively, they will be like branches that extend in all directions, east, west, north and south. As branches, you must inherit the 100 percent of the tradition. You must all become branches of the same kind. It would be the same for days like today. In each family, you should set your own True Parents’ Day, True Children’s Day and Day of All True Things. All the celebrations I conduct should be transplanted into your families.
There should be a department dedicated to this in our church. Before, everything was centered on the families, but now that we are in the era of nations, we should have departments to suit the change. The time has come for us to make departments for each sector in our church, such as the industry sector and the education sector. Yes, once we have our nation in place, all the blessed families in the world will become its citizens, transcending all races and nationalities. That is why you must all know how to speak Korean.
When I restore the fatherland, the whole of humankind will be one family. Your families are the root of kingship. The position of blessed families is the foundation for establishing kingship. A king is the basis for establishing kingship. Do you understand this? We must establish kingship.
Japanese members, do things thoroughly. The country of Japan does not exist. Hence, when an environment is established in which Japan’s position of original wife is lost you will have to move out. It is the same with the European members. No matter how difficult it is, you should move to Father’s original country. You have to prepare. If you understand this clearly, you should put it into practice. You should bring results through continuous work. That way, you will be able to register on the heavenly list of Father’s nation.
