The Meaning Of This Resurrection

On August 27,2008, the fortieth day since the helicopter accident, Father gives his own explanation of recent events and what they signify.
Ladies and gentlemen, through the Fall, Adam and Eve yielded their spiritual and physical bodies to Satan. Even though Jesus lost his physical body through the tribulation of the cross, he blazed the path of spiritual salvation for all humankind by achieving spiritual resurrection after the victory of the forty-day resurrection period. From this standpoint, this helicopter accident has tremendous providential significance. Amid an all-out attack from Satan, True Parents have obtained the complete, substantial victory, both spiritual and physical, and have enabled three generations of the True Family — which had been lost in the history of the providence — to be restored and firmly established without shedding a drop of blood.
On that unforgettable day, July 19, the day of the helicopter accident, rebirth was completed. On the twentieth day since the accident, August 7 (Chil Pal Jeol), resurrection was completed. Now it is the fortieth day since the accident, and as we tie this up in victory I am proclaiming the day of the perfection of eternal life. I proclaim the new day of eternal life, on which we can sing the praises of eternal liberation and complete freedom by opening up a new heaven and earth, the final ideal realm of the providence centering on God.
Now, January 13, 2013, promising a new time and new nation, is coming. Let us march on toward the day of the nation of Cheon Il Guk, the substantial kingdom of peace in which we may enjoy the eternal jubilee year by preserving God’s lineage and complete blessing and attending the original God as the Father of all humankind.
