Peace is horizontal

Translation by Kunduk Koh of unofficial notes taken by the Unification Church History Compilation Committee
The following is a summary of what Father said that day:
What should ambassadors for peace do? What is it that they should do after coming to the Unification Church? Peace is horizontal. There must be a vertical standard on a horizontal plane but did not happen. An ideal cannot be created with just two points. A straight line is connected by two points but without three points it goes divided for eternity. That is why three points are needed.
Confucianism teaches that there should be ‘affection between father and son,’ and ‘differentiation between a husband and a wife.’ Yet, there is no mention of love. What use is there to have affection between father and son? What to do with differentiation between a husband and a wife? If the details of relationships representing heaven and earth are obscure, the universe cannot become one. [Confucianism] didn’t know about unity between father and son, unity between husband and wife, and unity between siblings.
I know the secrets of the spirit world which allows me to become the king of the universe. It is line with the providential outlook of human history and reveals the parallels in providential eras.
(Mrs. Wonju McDevitt recites, ‘Crown of Glory,’ the poem Father wrote in his youth.)
Today is January 11, 2007. Yesterday was originally the day I promised to bless with all my heart any of the children of ambassadors for peace who might have come that day.
I came here after reading Peace Messages 9, 10, 11. The conclusion of this booklet is chapter eleven. Chapter ten states that sex is absolute. Sex refers to the sexual organ. The problem is that this sexual organ is afflicted with a disease. It is appalling that people throughout history have lived without knowing this fact.
My life course has been one of solving this problem. Before writing that poem, my family suffered great misfortunes. I had the responsibility to surmount this dreadful environment. That is why, I had to go through great pains in resolving this problem.
Once you come to know God’s will, you will realize that His will is valuable, though there are many things of value in the world, and that an ultimate task remains. That is why, I was so serious.
The only way to completely resolve what is said in that poem is by advancing into a world in which God and humanity on this earth are in complete freedom.
If God is the king of all parents, and if His children are imprisoned and unable to be freed, He would wish for their liberation and of living in peace in the ideal, heavenly kingdom. How can we create the kingdom of heaven on earth in which God can dance in joy each day of the year? Without creating such a kingdom, God cannot be liberated.
We are in the seventh year of Cheon Il Guk. Seven years in Christianity is called ‘jubilee’ and people take rest once every seven years.
The person who can become the True Parent, second advent of the lord, the savior, and messiah, has come and in the seven-thousand years of God’s providence of salvation, we have finally entered our jubilee which is the seventh year of Cheon Il Guk.
(Father stands up and approaches the participants) I’m almost ninety but I’m still healthy.
Today is January 11 in the seventh year of Cheon Il Guk. The providence of restoration has ended in the sixth year of Cheon Il Guk.
The Peace Messages are the keys to the secrets of the heavenly nation. That is why I read it thousands of time. When I was on my tour, I read it five to ten times a day. I offered devotion again and again; shedding tears as I read the pages, wishing that the tear marks remain.
How could I as a parent look at that many people who were dying each day in the world? If one’s children were to die in the field yet if there was a way to save them, you would stand at the head in finding that way. No one could obstruct the heart of the parent who wishes to liberate [such children.]
I have shed many tears for this nation. I had lamented. I have sent four of my children to the spirit world and worked to save the world through Hoon-mo nim on the earth and other spiritual people. Where else can you find a more miserable person than I? If a person pledges to take responsibility, could he run away from it just because he thinks he might die.
The six-thousand years of God’s providence of restoration was long but I have paid indemnity for it all.
The sixth year of Cheon Il Guk has passed. I had longed for the jubilee in the seventh year of Cheon Il Guk. In this light, January 11 is an extremely important day. On this day, I must release the bitter sorrow of heaven and earth that longed for liberation and freedom. I must liberate even God.
You must have nothing that goes against this booklet. I have reached a conclusion. If you don’t believe in this and feel pricks in your heart, how would you be able to find me once you go to the other world? There is not a person or ideology that can deny this.
