Kook Jin Moon among S.Korea's future leaders

Kook Jin Moon among S.Korea's future leaders
Kook Jin Moon, head of the Unification Church’s Tongil Foundation in South Korea, was recently named among South Korea’s 300 next generation leaders, according to one of the country’s major news weekly magazines.
Mr. Moon, fourth son of church founder Rev. Sun Myung Moon, was noted for “carrying out major restructuring in the leisure industry resulting in financial health for the companies” after taking over as chairman of the Tongil Foundation in 2005, the article in the Oct. 26, 2010, edition of Sisa Journal said.

In the third annual such survey sponsored by the news weekly, 50 experts in 30 fields, such as business, politics, finance, diplomacy, science, information technology, music, architecture, sports and publishing, were asked to identify people in their respective fields younger than 50 years old whom they considered leaders for the next generation. Mr. Moon was mentioned among the future leaders in the field of business.
The survey was conducted by a private public opinion research firm between Sept. 16 and Oct. 1. Sisa Journal on its website claimed the highest circulation among South Korea’s weekly news magazines.

Julia Moon, general director of Universal Ballet, has been awarded the Order of Cultural Merit, Hwagwan Class. The honor was conferred on her by Yu In-chon, Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism, on Oct. 16 in Mokpo, South Cholla Province, during a ceremony marking the 2010 Day of Culture.
The Order of Cultural Merit recognizes persons who have made exceptional contributions to the development of culture and arts in Korea. Among ballet dancers, Kim Yong Geol and Kim Ji-young were recognized with the award in 1998, after winning first prize, couples, in the 8th Concours International de Danse de Paris.
In 1984, Ms. Moon was a founding member of Universal Ballet, Korea’s first professional ballet company in the private sector, and she became its prima ballerina. She later became the first Asian to be invited by the Kirov Ballet to perform at the Mariinski Theatre, where she appeared in Giselle, Don Quixote, and Swan Lake.
Ms. Moon retired from the stage in 2001 and became active in the management of the company. During her tenure as general director, she has focused on broadening the audience base for ballet in Korea and engaging in social service projects. In a performance of Giselle in March 2008, Universal Ballet became the first Korean ballet company to provide real time Korean subtitles during a performance.
Ms. Moon’s efforts to gain a broader audience for ballet in Korea are not limited to efforts in the theater itself. She frequently provides lectures on ballet at companies, museums, universities and other venues around Korea.

World Assembly to Proclaim the Substantial Word of God and the Era of the Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind

World Assembly 2010 Celebration
November 27, 2010 Cesaers Palace, Las Vegas
On Saturday, November 27, 2010, 1300 Unification Church members and Ambassadors for Peace gathered in the Milano Ballroom at Ceasar’s Palace in Las Vegas, Nevada to hold the Cosmic Assembly to Proclaim the Words of the Substantial Body that has settled as the True Parents of Heaven Earth and Humanity.

Dr. Thomas Walsh, president of the Universal Peace Federation (UPF) International, welcomed all the guests to the day’s event, after which a slideshow presentation was shown about the history of conflict in the 20th century and the work of UPF Founder Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon to bring about world peace.

After the slideshow presentation, religious leaders from Christianity, Buddism, Islam and Unificationism were invited to the stage to each give an invocation to invite God and ancestors from each religion to attend the event.

Dr. Chang Shik Yang, the Regional Chair of UPF USA gave the welcoming address in which he explained that Rev. Moon has given his life for the sake of liberating God and saving humanity. Ms. Nina Alexander, Chair of the Multi-Cultural Advisory Committee in USA testified to Rev. and Mrs. Moon’s work for peace and the energy she had personally received through working for the Woman’s Federation for World Peace since it’s founding in 1992.

Ambassador Sam H. Zakhem, former U.S. ambassador to Bahrain and longtime ally of Rev. Moon, testified to the work of UPF and how much he had benefited from his involvement. He also outlined the personal victories of Rev. Moon’s life, such as how Rev. Moon kept his faith and dedication despite having to go to prison many times in his life. Rev. Moon was an exemplary leader even in prison, serving others and practicing the way of true love.

Chris Alan Derflinger and Ben Lorentzen of the Lovin’ Life band performed By the Spring of Life and Make You Feel My Love, two songs which expressed God’s love and the desire to give back to God in return.

Rev. Moon’s daughter, Rev. In Jin Moon, president and CEO of Unification Church USA, introduced her father as the perfected third Adam who has never wavered in his mission ever since he was anointed by Jesus at the young age of 16. He not only attained individual perfection and complete self-dominion, but he also found a person who could become his eternal bride and the eternal True Mother of Heaven, Earth and Humanity, who would grow to become the perfected third Eve.

In his main address, UPF Founder Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon spoke about his dedication to liberate God and restore God’s rightful position as our Heavenly Parent. As the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humanity, Rev. and Mrs. Moon have bestowed the Marriage Blessing and the Seunghwa Blessing (as well as the Dedication Ceremony for newborn babies) through which all of humanity can engraft onto God’s true lineage, inherit God’s true love, and be guaranteed entry into the Heavenly Kingdom.

Rev. Moon also talked about the many ways he has suffered and been mistreated, judged and misunderstood in his life. He explained that he has designated holy texts through which his legacy can remain even after his death.

Rev. Moon said that there were ages in the past in which human beings’ emotions and feelings were as low as the level of the feelings of animals and later the level of humanism. “However, these eras were transitional. They were courses of preparation necessary in order to enter the era in which people could rid themselves of their fallen nature, return to their original selves and live as one united family where they attend God as their father. The ‘era of heavenly emotions’ is the final stage, in which human beings should follow the path of living for the sake of others. They should do this through establishing an absolute standard on the foundation of purifying themselves, both inside and out (physically and spiritually), through the holy Blessing Ceremony.”

After his speech, Rev. Moon was joined by his wife and received flowers together with her. The event concluded with a final photo session and a warm applause by the audience as they warmly sent Rev. and Mrs. Moon off.

All participants of the UPF assembly were then invited to stay afterwards for a special thanksgiving celebration prepared by Rev. In Jin Moon and Lovin' Life Ministries.

Prior to the celebration, Ms. Ariana Shin Sun Moon held a special ballroom dance lesson for over 300 participants. A Thanksgiving Dinner was then served to the community along with entertainment by the Lovin Life Band, a ballroom dance exhibition by the STF dance team, and ballroom dancing for everyone. Words of acknowledgement and gratitude were offered by Rev. Joshua Cotter to all those who made this historic occasion in Las Vegas possible. Rev. In Jin Moon then expressed the joy that her father felt from all the support that made The World Assembly a huge success.

The following morning, Lovin Life Ministries held a live Sunday Service for everyone in Las Vegas. Rev. In Jin Moon spoke on how we are all jackpot winners, because we have our True Parents here in this historic time in Las Vegas. Due to popular demand, a second Ballroom Dance Lesson, focused on the Cha Cha, was given by Ariana after service.

A combined effort from UPF and Lovin' Life Ministries made this a special event which attracted participants as far as Washington and California. This united effort centered on True Parents made this event possible. 

This event marked the second occasion of True Father's series of three world assemblies. 

The world assembly in Las Vegas, Nevada, combined with the Thanksgiving celebration and Lovin' Life Ministries' Sunday Service brought the community together centered on True Parents. True Father will hold the third Cosmic Assembly to conclude this series of providential tours, in Seoul on December 4th, 2010.

Respected leaders from around the world, distinguished guests from home and abroad, ladies and
On behalf of True Parents, True Family, the Republic of Korea, the United States of America, and
Unification Church members worldwide, I sincerely welcome and express my deepest appreciation to
you for coming to participate in this providential World Assembly to Proclaim the Embodiment of
God’s Word and the Era of the Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind despite your busy schedules.
In this year alone, thousands of representatives and top leaders from 120 nations of the world
honored us with their presence on several occasions, including our Golden Anniversary, Coronation,
and various Legacy-of-Peace Memorial Festivals held at the UN building and in cities around the
United States and the world—making for many wonderful events. Once again, I would like to express
my appreciation on behalf of all the people of the Republic of Korea and all of humankind.
Ladies and gentlemen, this is a very eventful time in God’s providence. A few months ago I celebrated
my ninetieth birthday and took my first steps toward the hundredth year of my life. I have been blessed
with a long life, beyond the average human lifespan. My wife and I arranged for today’s world-level
celebration to commemorate our fiftieth wedding anniversary. From a providential point of view, this
year is not simply the year of our Golden Anniversary; it is also a Jubilee year.
We have fourteen children, of whom five have graduated from Harvard University. Among our
forty-plus grandchildren, several are already studying there. Moreover, a great number of good men
and women from 194 nations have come to recognize and follow us as the King and Queen of Peace
and the True Parents.
Throughout our lives, we have established many international organizations and institutions to
promote world peace. We have invested unreservedly in many fields including interreligious
cooperation, projects to benefit society, intercultural activities, sports, education and the media, and we
have successfully led these initiatives with the aim of promoting peace and bringing salvation to
After working to succeed in all these things, people would probably commend us, saying that we
deserve to look back and pleasantly enjoy the rest of our lives with the good wishes of all people. They
would probably encourage us to forget about everything and sit back and enjoy the successes achieved
during the past ninety years!
However, my wife and I cannot look at the lives we have led in such a worldly way. We have had to
complete the mission of the actual True Parents, given to us by God, Who is Himself the vertical True
Parent of all humankind. Now, with three years remaining in this mission to make God’s kingdom,
Cheon Il Guk, a reality, we are leading each day of our lives with more seriousness than ever before.
Throughout my life, I have offered myself for the liberation of God, the one and only True Parent of
heaven and earth, to restore to Him His rightful position as parent, to save all of human beings who
suffer in the realm of death, and to return them to God’s bosom. For this purpose I have persevered and
World Assembly to Proclaim the Substantial
Word of God and the Era of the Parents
of Heaven, Earth and Humankind
triumphed, alone, over countless tribulations while leading the people of the world, who are like lost
and unaware orphans searching for their parents, toward the goal of global salvation. Due to the Fall,
brought about by our first ancestors, people are born into the false lineage. Every one without exception
wanders in darkness even now, unable to break free of Satan’s bondage. Under such circumstances,
how could my wife and I be anything less than completely serious in our lives as we show the 6.5
billion people of the world the way along the path toward the building of God’s kingdom on earth?
Three Stages of Creation
Ladies and gentlemen, God created human beings as His children. As the original absolute, unique,
unchanging and eternal being, God created people by breathing His love into them to endow them
with a soul. If not for the Fall, we would have been able to perfect ourselves as God is perfect, to fulfill
the way of absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience, and to attain eternal life.
But unfortunately, human beings are living as descendants of the Fall. In order to live a perfect life,
all people without exception must receive life through the blessing from True Parents in the three
stages of rebirth, resurrection and eternal life. Rebirth, in this context, refers to an individual attaining
new life. Resurrection is when a family and nation attains new life, and eternal life refers to all of
humankind attaining perfection and living forever in God’s homeland after establishing the kingdom
of heaven on earth and in the spirit world by attending True Parents, the King and Queen of Peace.
Your ancestors who are in the spirit world shall now return to this earth according to the time of the
True Parents who directly govern all life and all things as the substantial entity of God who exists
without form. They will go through the three-stage blessings of rebirth, resurrection and eternal life
and complete the Original Divine Principle education — the education on absolute marital fidelity —
organized by True Parents. Only then can they take part in the original authority granted by the
seunghwa — ascension and liberation — and attain the qualifications to become citizens of Cheon Il
We can see that each person’s life goes through three stages. Everyone is conceived through the grace
of God and the love of his or her parents. The first stage of life is the long (yet short) nine months spent
in the mother’s womb. No one is exempt from this! Whether we are conscious of it or not at the time,
all of us without exception spend nine months in our mother’s womb. Even though a woman’s womb
is smaller than some rice cookers, from the perspective of a fetus, it is larger than the entire universe.
What about our birth into the second stage of our lives, which occurs on earth? How could we find
words adequate to describe the struggle of a newborn baby as it is faced with a completely unfamiliar,
new world? The first lonely cry of a newborn as it experiences the large and wide world that it finds
upon exiting the womb represents the promise of a one-hundred-year future, the blessing and
celebration of entering a new time and space.
We have all received the blessing of birth that enabled us to live in the second stage of our lives.
Although a hundred years is much longer than the nine months we spend in the womb, please do not
forget that there is still a course we must follow to a higher end. Although we have all forgotten the
standard of consciousness that we possessed in our mother’s womb, and though you may think that
we are now enjoying our lives fully in this big, wide world with a higher standard of consciousness,
there is yet one final stage of our lives, which is the way toward eternal life.
That third stage occurs in the world of eternal life, the spirit world, which we enter upon ending our
life on this earth. We were originally meant to enter the spirit world having first perfected our spirits
during our life on earth. It is a world that cannot be imagined by people descended from the Fall, a
world in which we transcend time and space. Just as the fetus in his or her mother’s womb cannot
imagine life on earth, we, as people living and breathing air in this earthly world, cannot easily
understand the spirit world, where we will be reborn in our spiritual bodies, living and breathing true
Ladies and gentlemen, as people face death, they may tremble in fear and terror if they do not
understand the true meaning of passing on. Although human history has continued for more than six
thousand years, no one, unfortunately, has clearly taught the truth regarding death. Now, in the Last
Days of history, I have been able to reveal this truth, this heavenly secret, as the True Parent of
Ladies and gentlemen, the word “death” is sacred. It is not a synonym for “sadness and suffering.”
True Parents have created the term seunghwa [ascension] to explain the true significance of death. The
moment we enter the spirit world should be a time that we enter a world of joy and victory with the
fruits born of our lives on earth. It is a time for those of us remaining on earth to send off the departed
with joy. It should be a time for great celebration. We should be shedding tears of joy instead of tears of
sadness. That is the way of the sacred and noble Seunghwa Ceremony. The Seunghwa Ceremony is the
first step the spirit of the departed takes toward enjoying eternal life in attendance of God, within His
embrace. At the moment of death, our spirits should feel more excited and thrilled than a newlywed
bride feels when she goes to her groom’s home for the first time.
In order to open the door for all people to experience this kind of precious eternal life, I held a
Seunghwa Ceremony at the United Nations headquarters in New York on March 18 in honor of world
leaders who had recently passed into the next world.
The following are the names of those commemorated on that occasion:
General Alexander Haig, a former U.S. Secretary of State, who with the UN forces saved my life by
leading the bombing of the North Korean Hungnam Special Labor Camp where I was imprisoned
during the Korean War; Mr. Kim Dae-jung, a former South Korean president, who won the Nobel
Peace Prize; Mr. Hédi Annabi, a Tunisian diplomat and head of the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti,
who died in the 2010 Haitian earthquake; the one hundred UN workers who died alongside Mr.
Annabi; Mr. Rodrigo Carazo Odio, a former president of Costa Rica, who is known internationally as
“the Peace President”; Mr. Abdurrahman Wahid, a former president of Indonesia, who gave his entire
life for the sake of his great nation; Mr. Steingrimur Hermannsson, a former prime minister of Iceland,
who helped host the meeting of then Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev and United States President
Ronald Reagan, which accelerated the end of the Cold War; Shaykh Hassan Cissé of Senegal, who is
respected as a great scholar of Islamic authority; and Mr. Laxmi Mall Singhvi of India, who is praised
as the “Ambassador of Reconciliation and Peace” by India’s 1.1 billion people.
There are other people whom we would especially like to remember through this ceremony and
send to the spirit world with the Seunghwa Blessing. I’m sure you have already heard about the recent
sinking of the ship Cheonan in Korea where 46 sailors suddenly lost their lives in the course of duty.
During my four-city speaking tour in Korea in April, my wife and I bestowed the grace of the Seunghwa
Blessing on these unfortunate seamen who died.
Later, during another event at Las Vegas, USA, I bestowed the Seunghwa Blessing on Dr. Reiko
Kawasaki, a 17th-generation descendant of Tokugawa Ieyasu, the last shogun in Japanese history, who
united the Japanese archipelago in the 17th century. She was a medical doctor from Las Vegas, and
recently passed away after living a life of continuous service to others. Before her passing, she played
an important role for the sake of the realization of world peace by setting a foundation for the future
resolution of various issues in Korea, Japan and the United States, including political and economic
issues. Thus, I have included her in the list of those who will receive this sacred Seunghwa Blessing.
Distinguished leaders, although the lives of the people whose names I mentioned were altruistic and
philanthropic, none of them can be guaranteed entry into the world of eternal life without receiving the
marriage blessing and the Seunghwa Blessing of the True Parent [Rev. Moon] in this world today, in
which the parent-child relationship between God and humankind was severed due to the Fall of the
first ancestors. Please take this point seriously.
Ladies and gentlemen, this era, when God has introduced the heavenly calendar, is a serious one. It
is now the time in which all 6.5 billion of the world’s people must understand my teachings, which I
bequeath as the True Parent who is responsible to give eternal life to all of humankind. Now is a time
that you can share the good news of the coming of the True Parents throughout the entire world. The
time has come to honor and inherit the tradition and spirit of the Korean people, from which the True
Parents emerged, establish the heavenly tradition, and bring about world peace by uniting all 6.5 billion
people of the world with the United Nations. With the start of the heavenly calendar, please do not
forget that the Seunghwa Blessing Ceremony is a sacred rite in which anyone can inherit the worldview
of a holy citizen of the kingdom of heaven and celebrate God’s liberation and all humankind’s liberation.
In this way, the ideal of a family based on true love can be completed, and God and all people, the
heavenly spirit world and the earthly physical world, can be completely united to usher in a reign of
peace over the world. Please take this time to express your gratitude to God and True Parents for giving
the keys of the Blessing Ceremony and Seunghwa Ceremony to all the world’s nations, allowing for the
establishment of the traditions of God’s kingdom, Cheon Il Guk, through True Parents.
Please join me in giving a round of applause to our Heavenly Father for His benevolence, through
which we can receive the grace of precious life without Him asking for anything in return.
One Family Under God
Ladies and gentlemen, what is the path that humankind should take today? Even now tens of
millions of innocent lives are being lost each year to war, disease, starvation and natural disasters that
arise in all parts of the world. In every field you observe, from the individual to the collective level —
whether religion, politics, education, culture or ideology — people are deeply mired in the swamp of
self-centered egoism, raising walls around themselves. We now live in a world brought to ruin, where
genuine communication has broken down.
Ultimately, the problems afflicting humanity can only be resolved through the worldview of One
Family under God, in other words, the ideology based on true love, which my wife and I, the True
Parents, have learned from Heaven and have championed and taught throughout our lives. This is the
only way for humankind to find the path toward peace and happiness.
Ladies and gentlemen, we are living in a historic time of great cosmic transition. It is a time for a great
cosmic revolution to change history, to unite the spiritual and physical worlds and to create the ideal
kingdom of heaven that God has longed for since the beginning of time.
We can no longer postpone or prolong the fulfillment of His wish. I have already proclaimed that
January 13, 2013 will be “Foundation Day.” That day will be the actual beginning of God’s Kingdom of
Cheon Il Guk. That day will be the origin. Yet, less than three years remain until then.
Therefore, it is time for all people to be humbly obedient to Heaven’s decree. An unavoidable time is
upon us today when we must invest ourselves completely with a life or death commitment for these
remaining three years under the guidance of the True Parents who carry out the providence on earth
as the substantial representatives of God, the king of kings. All the good spirits in the spirit world are
mobilized and are already moving forward, a step ahead of you.
Ladies and gentlemen, do you have any idea how much pain God suffered the moment our first
ancestors, into whom God had invested His complete and unreserved devotion since time immemorial,
fell and disappeared into darkness, becoming part of Satan’s lineage? Are you even remotely aware
that our Heavenly Father — who endured tens of thousands of years of excruciating heartache so great
that His bones shed tears and His flesh quivered — had to go through the long, dark tunnel of
indemnifying the human Fall in order to save His lost children? How many of you have spent days and
nights in tears, yearning to comfort our Father in Heaven?
The Mission of the Korean People
Ladies and gentlemen, God raised and prepared the Korean people over a period of thousands of
years. All people of the Christian faith recognize that God sent His true son Jesus Christ to earth two
thousand years ago to save humankind. However, Jesus suffered a miserable fate.
The leaders of Judaism and the people of Israel were supposed to receive Jesus as the Messiah and
follow him with absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience. They should never have allowed
Jesus’ crucifixion to take place.
He suddenly left this world, leaving behind the words, “It is finished.” Yet these words apply to
salvation in the spiritual reality only. After two thousand years of preparation, his Second Coming, on
the Korean Peninsula, has finally borne the fruits of his labor.
From the past, the Korean people have worshiped God as the highest and primal ancestor of their
forefathers. They called that single being and progenitor of all people the “One”—in other words, God.
They served Him as the lord (who created night and day). Thus, all numbers begin from one and two.
With the sense that He is their original ancestor, the Korean people have served God and thus the spirit
of interdependence, mutual prosperity and universally shared values is alive in the soul and tradition
of the race. They have maintained themselves over five thousand years of history, yet not once have
they invaded or plundered another nation or people. The spirit of benefiting all mankind still flows in
the veins of the Korean people.
The spirit of filial piety, fidelity, and loyalty, which are the fundamental virtues of human life, are still
alive and breathing in Korean history. These values can be found in the men and women of Korea and
reflect the pride and spirit of the Korean people.
I have inherited such traditional values as the true filial piety exemplified in the folk tale Shimcheong,
about a devoted daughter who offered her life so that her blind father could see; the profound love and
fidelity displayed by Choonhyang, who overcame the fear of death in order to keep the promise she
had made to her husband; and the unbreakable loyalty exhibited by Admiral Yi Soon-shin, who gave
his life to save his nation and people despite being abandoned by his king and other leaders. These
lofty Korean values and traditions are not just matters of historical chance. Based on these values,
Heaven has prepared this people; this was all part of the providence of creating a foundation to send
the returning Messiah. On the foundation of such preparation, and riding on the energy of this
peninsula, I finally came, having received Heaven’s seal as the True Parent of humankind and the king
of kings.
The Path Humankind Should Take
Distinguished Guests, your Excellencies, Ladies and Gentlemen:
The path that humanity must now take is clear. What would give you cause to hesitate in the face of
the D-day that Heaven has revealed through us, the True Parents? There are now only 903 days
remaining. Heaven’s blessings will be with you on your ambitious and busy course.
If you view the flow of history through eyes that focus on God’s providence, you can see that the
changes of the times can be broadly classified into three stages. First is the “era of worldly matters,” in
other words, a time when materialism took precedence. Next came the “era of human affairs,” a
humanistic era when peoples’ knowledge and emotions took precedence in and dominated the world.
However, these eras were transitional. They were courses of preparation necessary in order to enter
the era in which people could rid themselves of their fallen nature, return to their original selves and
live as one united family where they attend God as their father.
The “era of heavenly affairs” is the final stage, in which human beings should follow the path of
living for the sake of others. They should do this through establishing an absolute standard on the
foundation of purifying themselves, both inside and out, through the holy Blessing Ceremony. This is
the time of opening up the era of God’s kingdom, Cheon Il Guk, a time in which we can return to the
heart of the one true God. Please engrave this point on your hearts.
Once the actual era of Cheon Il Guk begins, the spiritual and earthly worlds will be connected and
brought into oneness, and all things will be governed under the Union of the Spiritual and Physical
Worlds, which will be established on earth for the first time. Moreover, the providence will be carried
out according to the heavenly law and the heavenly way. Elections conducted in a purely secular
fashion will disappear from the face of the earth. All people will become one family through crosscultural
marriage and the World Peace Marriage Blessing, and we will enjoy tranquility and happiness
in the sacred reign of peace. Let me say it again: this day is drawing near.
As part of preparing for that time, a few months ago, on February 14, I proclaimed to all of heaven
and earth the start of the new heavenly calendar. The Gregorian calendar and lunar calendar shall now
stand in the positions of Cain and Abel and serve the role of supporting the heavenly calendar, by
which we will record and indicate the progress of God’s providence.
You must all now engrave True Parents’ teachings onto your bones and practice them in your life. We
have no choice. If we do not prepare now, we will surely be left behind. We should learn from the
courage and fortitude of the white-necked cranes that fly across the Himalayas — which are more than
seven thousand meters high — in preparation for winter.
My Final Words for Humankind
True Parents have already prepared the last words I will give to humankind. These have been
prepared based on my triumphs over six or seven life-or-death situations, including six periods of
unjust imprisonment. I am leaving behind eight textbooks and teaching materials for humankind to
use for all eternity. Altogether, these are published in almost a thousand volumes.
They are The Sermons of the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, Exposition of the Divine Principle, Cheon
Seong Gyeong [Heavenly Scripture], The Family Pledge, Pyeong Hwa Shin Gyeong [Messages of
Peace], True Families—Gateway to Heaven, Owner of Peace and Owner of Lineage and World Scripture.
These are textbooks you will have to read and study even after you go to the spirit world. They are not
just teachings that come from the mind of one person; they are textbooks and teaching materials that
teach the heavenly way that God has granted to His suffering children for their salvation.
You should now set up the hoondokhae study tradition in your families using the books I have
mentioned. That is the tradition where three generations of a family start each day by reading Heaven’s
word, and lead a life of practicing what they read, with a new heart. Let’s create a world where people
in the spirit world and the earthly world can both attend True Parents at the same time, and read the
word on the heavenly path together.
Once this happens, no matter how hard Satan may try to worm his way in to infest your lineage, once
he encounters the hoondokhae tradition he will find no room to move. If a family is aligned with God
as at high noon, where no shadow is cast, and still does not receive God’s blessings, who then could be
deserving of them? When such heavenly families fill the earth, the world will automatically become the
heavenly kingdom on earth and in the eternal spirit world, fulfilling the vision of one family under
Ladies and gentlemen, last year, my memoirs, As a Peace-Loving Global Citizen, an honest and
candid account of my life, were published. Through this book I share how I discovered God’s will for
humankind and the path that we, as God’s children, should follow. My life has been a typical model of
the saying, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try, try again.” I have as much faith in this book as in the
hoondok textbooks and teaching materials I have mentioned. For this reason, I recommend it to you,
believing that it will show you how to lead your lives according to true principles. It does not subtract
or add anything to the ninety years of my life, which I have led under Heaven’s decree. I pray you will
carefully read this articulation of true love and find great inspiration.
I have already mentioned that a life of vertical “noon-time” alignment casts no shadow. If we can all
shine as we live such glowing lives, there will be no chance for the shadow of sin to be cast. Those who
receive the light will be indebted to the light. I pray that we can now wipe away the tears of people in
misery and poverty, and lead an illuminated life of eternal true love that dissipates all darkness.
Proclamation of the Era of the Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind
Ladies and gentlemen, a month ago in Las Vegas, there was a special proclamation centered on God
that was given by the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind on two separate days—one part
at 2:20 am on the 8th day of the 5th month of the Heavenly Calendar (June 19, 2010) and the other at
3:25 am, on the 15th day of the 5th month of the Heavenly Calendar (June 26, 2010).
The number 3 from 3:25 am represents the three eras from the saying “Success comes at the third
attempt.” It also symbolizes the Old, New and Completed Testament ages. Twenty-five minutes, or the
number 25, is a quarter of one hundred. The True Parents have achieved ultimate unity and offered and
proclaimed the era of [God’s] full transcendence, full immanence, full authority and omnipotence upon
the standard of perfection, completion and conclusion.
Furthermore, with the Seunghwa Ceremony for former United States Secretary of State General
Alexander Haig, I proclaimed that the ceremony for the victory of the first, second, and third Israels,
which completed the ceremonies for rebirth, resurrection and seunghwa during my lifetime, was
transferred to Korea.
Thus, Korea will now become God’s homeland and hometown. By proclaiming that Korea is God’s
homeland, the Convention to Proclaim the Word that Firmly Establishes the True Parents of Heaven,
Earth and Humankind could be completed in Korea on July 8, 2010.
Through this proclamation ceremony, all the borderlines in the entire cosmos have been abolished.
Consequently, centering on the autonomous God, heaven and earth shall exist eternally, night and day,
under God’s reign and with the support of the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind.
Distinguished guests, at this serious and important time, a revolutionary and cosmic change must
now take place in your lives. Let us summarize the message Heaven has given to us today in light of
First, all blessed families should attend God at the center of their families and every day carry out
hoondok education, which can completely unite parents and children. In other words, you should
thoroughly teach the Divine Principle, the textbooks and teaching materials True Parents have
bequeathed, True Father’s autobiography, and absolute marital fidelity taught through the Original
Divine Principle.
Second, Heaven has permitted the grace of the authority of seunghwa for rebirth and resurrection to
be bestowed on the family unit. Here, a requisite condition is the complete unity between parents and
children. In other words, you must establish the standard for absolute parents and absolute children,
and establish an absolute family.
Third, humankind has moved out of the authority of the era of restoration through indemnity, thanks
to the grace of True Parents who have suffered hardships through which they sweat blood. Therefore,
do not forget the fact that during True Parents’ lifetimes we all have the responsibility to liberate
families, tribes, peoples, nations and the world from the authority of hell. Now that the era of restoration
through indemnity has ended, what kind of era is dawning? The reign of tranquility and prosperity in
the victorious authority centered on God and True Parents shall be eternal.
Fourth, we are now entering the era of the authority of God’s direct dominion. Ladies and gentlemen,
I have said that less than three years remain until the D-day proclaimed by Heaven. I beg that you
inscribe in your hearts the fact that we have entered the era of the authority of the cosmic Sabbath in
which your family members in the spirit world shall return to the earth to receive the Original Divine
Principle education, and where eight generations will live together in a single family. Aju!
Once again, I offer you my heartfelt thanks for your gracing this occasion with your presence and
celebrating this providential event. I pray that you will live in good health and in the abundance of
God’s love. It is my hope that we can offer greater glory and honor to God the next time we meet.
I pray that the blessings of God, the king of kings, will be upon you, your family and your nation.
Thank you very much.

천지인 참부모 정착 실체 말씀 선포대회
존경하는 세계 각국의 지도자, 그리고 내외 귀빈 여러분!
공사다망하심에도 불구하고 오늘 이 섭리적인 ‘천지인 참부모 정착 실체 말씀 선포대회’에 참석하여 주심에
저희 참부모 참가정과 대한민국과 축복받은 세계 식구의 이름으로 환영하며 감사를 드립니다. 금년에만도
세계 120여 개 국의 최고 지도자들 수천명이 본인 부부의 금혼식과 대관식, 그리고 새로운 UN빌딩에서의
승화축제 행사를 빛내주기 위해 만장의 성황을 이루어 주셨습니다. 다시 한번 대한민국 백성 모두와 전 인
류의 이름으로 감사를 올리는 바입니다.
여러분, 본인은 벌써 수개월 전에 만 90세 생신을 축하하고 이제 100세를 향한 바쁜 섭리의 발걸음을 내딛
고 있습니다. 세속적인 관점에서 보면 평균 수명의 기준을 훨씬 넘어 장수하고 있습니다. 우리 부부는 또 금
혼의 해를 맞아 이렇게 세계적 규모의 축하연도 베풀고 있습니다. 섭리적인 관점에서 보면 금년은 단순한
금혼의 해만이 아니요, 희년입니다.
자식도 14명을 두어 그 중 다섯명이나 하버드 대학교를 졸업시켰고, 40여명이나 되는 손주들 중에서도 여
러명이 벌써 하버드에서 공부를 하고 있습니다. 세계 194개국에서 수백만명의 선남선녀들이 본인 부부를
평화의 왕-참부모로 모시며 받들고 있습니다.
우리 부부가 일생동안 세계평화를 위해 창설하고 운영해 나온 세계적 규모의 조직과 기구들도 수백에 이르
고 있습니다. 종교, 사회, 문화, 체육, 교육, 언론 등 많은 분야에 천문학적인 투자를 했고, 인류 구원과 평화 증
진을 위해 성공리에 발전시켜 나가고 있습니다.
이만하면 한 인간으로서 만인의 축복 속에 자신의 삶을 되돌아보며 흐뭇하게 여생을 즐길 자격이 있다고들
칭송할 것입니다. 모든 짐을 다 내려놓고, 이제 마음껏 ‘구십 생애의 성공’을 자랑하며 살라고들 할 것입니다.
그러나 우리 부부의 생애는 세속적인 눈으로 보는 그런 차원의 삶이 아닙니다. 인류의 종적 참부모 되신 하
나님의 인침을 받고, 실체 참부모의 사명을 완수해야만 하는 우리 부부는 이제 실체 천일국 완성까지의 마지
막 3년을 남겨놓고, 그 어느 때보다도 심각한 나날을 살아가고 있습니다.
구십 평생을 바쳐 살아온 본인의 생애는 오직 천주의 참부모 되시는 하나님을 해방시켜 부모의 자리를 다시
찾아드리고, 사망권에서 허덕이는 인류를 구해 하나님의 품으로 되돌려드리는 것이었습니다. 이 뜻을 위해
본인은 홀로 만난을 뚫고 승리하며, 부모 잃은 고아의 신세로 전락해버린 무지몽매한 인류를 이끌고 이 세계
구원의 길을 걸어왔습니다. 인류 조상의 타락으로 인해 거짓 혈통을 전수받은 인간은 그 누구를 막론하고
사탄의 굴레를 벗어나지 못한 채, 지금도 어둠속을 헤매고 있지 않습니까? 65억 인류를 이끌고 지상천국 창
건의 길을 걸어가는 우리 부부의 삶이 어찌 심각하지 않을 수 있겠습니까?
창조적 3단계
여러분, 하나님은 인간을 당신의 자식으로 창조하셨습니다. 절대, 유일, 불변, 영원의 본체이신 하나님께서
당신의 사랑을 혼으로 불어 넣어 지은 인간 역시 타락이 없었다면 하나님과 같은 기준까지 완성하여 절대신
앙, 절대사랑, 절대복종의 도리를 다하며 영생하게 되어 있는 것입니다.
천지인 참부모 정착 실체 말씀 선포대회
그러나 불행하게도 인류는 타락의 후예가 되어 살아가고 있습니다. 따라서 인간은 누구를 막론하고 참부모
님을 통한 중생, 부활, 영생의 3단계 축복을 거쳐 태어나야만, 완성의 삶을 영위할 수 있게 되는 것입니다. 다
시 말해서 중생은 개인적 기준의 거듭남이요. 부활은 가정과 국가적 기준의 거듭남이며, 영생은 세계적 기
준에서 전 인류가 함께 완성하여 평화의 왕-참부모님을 모시고, 지상-천상천국을 이루어 하나님의 조국에
서 영생하는 것을 뜻합니다.
그리고 영계에 가있는 여러분의 조상들까지도 무형으로 임재하시는 하나님의 실체로서 만생 만사를 실체
주관하고 계시는 참부모님의 때를 맞이하여 이제 지상에 재림하여 중생, 부활, 영생의 3단계 축복을 거치고,
참부모님의 본체론 교육, 즉 절대성 교육을 거쳐야만 본연의 승화권에 진입하여 천일국 시민의 자격을 확보
할 수 있게 되는 것입니다.
우리 개개인의 생을 놓고 보아도 3단계의 삶을 쉽게 알 수 있습니다. 인간은 누구나 먼저 하나님의 은총과
부모의 사랑으로 생명의 잉태함을 받아, 10개월이라는 길고도 짧은 기간을 어머니의 복중에서 보내게 됩니
다. 의식수준이 어느 정도이건, 우리는 복중 10개월 기간을 예외 없이 거쳐 오게 됩니다. 보온밥통 속보다도
좁은 공간이라 할지라도, 그 속에서 우리의 삶은 우주 공간보다도 더 큰 첫 단계의 삶을 맛보게 되는 것입니
제 2단계인 지상의 삶으로의 태어남은 어떻습니까? 미지의 세계를 향한 어린 태아의 몸부림을 우리가 어찌
필설로 다 묘사할 수 있겠습니까? 보다 크고 넓은 세계, 복중세계에서는 상상도 못한 새로운 차원의 세계를
향해 출발하는 새 생명의 고고한 외침은 100년 대계를 약속받는 새로운 시간과 공간으로의 축복이요, 환희
입니다. 오늘 여러분 모두는 이 제 2단계에서의 삶을 축복받아 살고 있습니다. 10개월이라는 시간이 100년
으로 늘어났을 뿐, 우리에게는 아직도 가야할 길이 남아 있다는 것을 잊지 마십시오. 태중에서의 의식기준
은 다 잊어버리고, 보다 높은 의식과 보다 넓은 공간에서 마음껏 생을 즐기고 있다고들 생각할지 모르지만,
여러분에겐 영생을 향한 마지막 단계가 더 남아있다는 것입니다.
제 3단계는 바로 우리가 완성하여 들어가 살 영생의 세계, 즉 영계입니다. 타락의 후예인 인간으로서는 상상
도 할 수 없는 미지의 세계입니다. 시공을 초월하여 사는 세계입니다. 복중의 태아가 지상계를 상상도 할 수
없었던 것처럼, 지상계에서 공기를 호흡하고 사는 육신 쓴 인간으로서는 영인체로 태어나 참사랑을 호흡하
며 사는 영계의 삶을 쉽게 이해할 수 없다는 것입니다.
여러분, 죽음에 임박하면 인간은 두려움에 떨게 됩니다. 공포를 느끼게 됩니다. 그것은 죽음이 무엇을 의미
하는지 모르기 때문입니다. 불행하게도 인류역사가 6천년 기간을 거쳐 오면서도 그 어느 누구 한 사람 이 죽
음에 대한 진실을 밝히 가르쳐준 사람이 한 사람도 없었습니다. 그러나 이제 역사의 종말기가 되어 인류의
참부모께서 비로소 그 천비를 밝혀주신 것입니다.
여러분, 죽음이란 단어는 신성한 말입니다. 슬픔과 고통의 대명사가 아닙니다. 그래서 참부모님께서 그 단
어를 ‘승화’로 고쳐 발표했습니다. 지상계의 삶을 꽃피우고 열매 맺어 알곡을 품고 환희와 승리의 세계로 들
어가는 때가 영계 입문의 순간입니다. 기뻐해야 할 순간입니다. 마음껏 축하하고 전송해 주어야 할 때입니
다. 슬픔의 눈물이 아닌 기쁨의 눈물을 흘리고, 흘려주어야 할 때입니다. 승화식이란 이처럼 성스럽고 숭고
천지인 참부모 정착 실체 말씀 선포대회
한 의식입니다. 하나님의 품으로 돌아가 모시고 영생을 즐기러 가는 첫걸음이기 때문입니다. 새색시가 시집
가는 그 순간보다도 더 가슴 떨리고 흥분해야 할 때인 것입니다.
이처럼 귀한 영생으로의 문을 열어주기 위해, 본인은 지난 3월 18일 뉴욕의 UN본부에서 최근에 영면한 세
계적 평화 지도자들에게 승화식을 베풀어 주었습니다. 일찍이 한국전쟁 때 본인이 수감되어 있었던 흥남감
옥을 폭파하여 본인의 생명을 구해주기도 했던 알렉산더 헤이그 전 미국 국무장관을 위시하여, 노벨평화상
을 수상한 한국의 김대중 전 대통령, 최근 발생한 아이티의 대지진 참사로 순직한 헤디 아나비 UN 봉사대 단
장과 대원 100여명, 평화의 대통령으로 세계에 널리 알려진 코스타리카 전직 대통령 카라조, 불구의 몸으로
도 인구 2억이 넘는 대국 인도네시아를 위해 평생 몸을 바쳐 헌신했던 와히드 전 대통령, 고르바초프 전 소
련 대통령과 레이건 전 미국 대통령의 만남을 주선하여 냉전 종식에 함께 공을 세운 전 아이슬랜드 총리 허
맨슨, 이슬람권의 대표적 석학으로 존경받던 세네갈의 하센 씨세, 11억 인도인들에게 ‘화해와 평화의 대사’
로 칭송받던 씽비 대사가 그들입니다.
그 외에도, 최근 한국에서는 천안함 침몰로 인해 장병들 46명이 졸지에 전사했습니다. 본인 부부는 지난 4
월 한국 주요 도시 순회강연을 통해 그 억울한 희생장병들을 위해 승화축복의 은사를 베풀어 주었으며, 그
후에도 미국 라스베이거스 대회에서는 일본 역사상 가장 마지막 쇼군으로서 17세기에 벌써 일본열도를 통
일했던 도쿠가와 이에야스의 17대손, 닥터 레이코의 승화축복을 베풀어주기도 했습니다. 그 분은 평생 베
푸는 삶을 살다가 최근에 승화한 라스베이거스 출신의 여의사로서 금후 한국과 일본, 미국, 더 나아가서는
세계평화실현을 위한 정치 경제 등 제반 문제들을 해결하는데 큰 역할을 했던 분이기에 이렇게 거룩한 승화
축복 대열에 참여시킨 것입니다.
지도자 여러분, 그러나 위에 열거한 그 분들의 생애가 비록 이타주의와 박애주의에 입각한 위대한 삶이었다
할지라도, 인류 조상의 타락으로 인해 하나님과의 부자지관계가 단절된 현 세계에서는 참부모님의 결혼축
복과 승화축복이 없이는 영생의 그 세계를 보장받을 수 없다는 것을 명심하십시오.
여러분, 지금 이 시대는 하늘이 ‘천력’을 선포한 시대입니다. 심각한 시대입니다. 65억 인류의 영생을 책임질
‘천인’을 갖고 오신 인류의 참부모님의 가르침을 따르지 않고는 살 길이 없는 때가 왔습니다. 여러분 모두는
참부모님의 이름을 만천하에 드러내놓고 자랑하고 칭송해야 할 때입니다. 참부모님께서 출현한 한민족의
전통과 정신을 존경하고 전수받아 하늘의 전통을 정립하고, UN과 65억 인류가 하나가 되어, 세계 평화를 정
착해야 할 때가 왔습니다. 여러분은 이제 ‘천력’의 출발과 더불어 거룩한 천국백성의 이념을 전수해 주는 기
치를 높이고, 하나님의 해방과 인류의 구원을 축하하는 성스러운 예식이 바로 승화축복식이라는 것을 잊지
마시기 바랍니다.
그리하여 참사랑을 뿌리로 한 가정이상을 완성하고, 하나님과 인간이, 그리고 천상의 영계와 지상의 육계가
완전히 통일된 태평성대의 세상을 열어가야 할 것입니다. 만국에 빛낼 수 있는 축복과 승화의 열쇠를 주시
어 천일국의 전통을 세우게 해주신 하나님과 참부모님께 큰 감사를 올려야 할 것입니다.
이런 귀한 생명을 값없이 우리에게 은총으로 내려주신 하나님 아버지께 우리 모두 감사의 박수를 올리지 않
하나님 아래 한 가족
귀빈 여러분, 그렇다면 오늘 인류가 가야할 길은 어디에 있습니까? 지금도 세계 도처에서는 전쟁과 질병, 기
아, 그리고 자연재해로 인해 무고한 인명이 매년 수천만명씩 희생되어 가고 있습니다. 종교, 정치, 교육, 문
화, 사상 등 어느 분야를 둘러보아도 개인은 물론, 집단으로까지 극도의 이기주의적 아집의 늪에 빠져 철저
하게 문을 닫아걸고 있습니다. 소통이 없는 불통의 세계로 전락해 버린 것입니다.
결국 인류의 제반 문제는 참부모 되는 본인 부부가 하늘로부터 받아 평생 동안 주창하고 교육해온 ‘하나님
아래 한 가족’ 사상, 즉 참사랑의 가르침에 의해 해결할 수 밖에 없습니다. 이 사상만이 인류에게 평화와 행복
의 길을 찾아줄 수 있는 유일한 길이기 때문입니다.
여러분, 오늘 우리가 살고 있는 이 시대는 역사적인 대 천주적 전환기입니다. 역사를 바꾸고, 영계와 지상계
를 하나로 만들어, 하나님께서 태초부터 소원하셨던 이상천국을 이 지상에 창건해야 하는 대 천주적 혁명기
입니다. 더 이상 연기하거나 연장할 시간이 없습니다. 하늘은 벌써 2013년 1월 13일을 ‘기원절’로 선포해 놓
았습니다. 실체적 천일국의 시발이요, 기원이 되는 날이 바로 그 날인 것입니다. 3년도 채 남지 않았습니다.
따라서 인류는 이제 하늘의 명 앞에 겸허한 자세로 순종해야 할 때입니다. 평화의 왕 되신 하나님의 실체로
서, 지상계에서 섭리를 경륜하고 계시는 참부모님의 인도함을 따라, 남은 3년간을 전력투구, 사생결단을 해
야 할 숙명적인 시간이 오늘 우리 앞에 다가왔다는 것입니다. 영계의 모든 선령들도 총 동원되어 여러분보
다 한 발 앞서서 뛰고 있습니다.
한민족의 사명
여러분, 억겁의 시간과 정성을 쏟아 부어 당신의 자식으로 창조해 놓은 인간이 타락으로 말미암아 사탄의 혈
통을 받고 어둠속으로 숨어버린 그 순간부터 하나님께서 당하신 그 고통이 얼마나 큰지 아십니까? 뼈가 울
고 살결이 떨리는 처절한 고통 속에서 수천 수만년을 참고 기다려 오신 여러분의 아버지가 얼마나 길고 험
난한 탕감의 터널을 거쳐 오셨는지 생각이나 해 보았습니까? 이런 불쌍한 아버지를 위해 어느 한 순간이라
도 눈물을 흘려본 적이 있느냐는 말입니다.
여러분, 하나님은 수천년간 한민족을 기르며 준비시켜 나왔습니다. 2천년 전 당신의 독생자 예수 그리스도
를 이 땅에 보내시고, 그를 통해 인류를 다시 구원하려 하셨던 역사를 여러분도 잘 아실 것입니다. 그러나 결
과는 너무나 비참하게 끝나고 말았습니다. 예수님을 메시아로 받아들여 절대신앙, 절대사랑, 절대복종의 길
을 갔어야 했던 유태교의 지도자들과 이스라엘 민족이 오히려 그를 십자가의 길로 내몰고 말았지 않습니
까? 그러나 “다 이루었다!”는 영적 구원의 말 한마디를 남겨놓고 홀연히 떠나버린 예수님의 재림은 2천년간
의 준비를 거쳐, 드디어 이 한반도에서 열매를 맺게 된 것입니다.
한민족은 예로부터 하나님을 조상 중 최고 최상의 조상으로 숭앙하며 살아온 천손민족입니다. 오직 한 분이
신 만인의 조상, 그 분을 ‘한 분님’, 즉 ‘하나님’이라 불러 주인(밤과 낮의 창조주)으로 모셔왔고, 따라서 모든 수
의 근원도 하나, 둘로부터 시작했던 것입니다. 이런 하나님을 원초 조상으로 모셔온 민족이기에, 한민족의
정신과 전통 속에는 공생, 공영, 공의의 혼이 살아있는 것입니다. 오천년이 넘는 역사를 지켜오면서도 남의
나라와 민족을 침략하거나 약탈하지 않은 홍익인간의 맥이 뛰고 있는 선민입니다.
천지인 참부모 정착 실체 말씀 선포대회
더 나아가 한국의 역사 속에는 인간 삶의 근본 덕목이 되는 효와 충과 열의 혼이 살아 숨쉬고 있습니다. 꽃
같은 처녀의 나이에 자신의 몸을 바다에 던져 늙은 아버지의 눈을 뜨게 해주었던 효녀 심청의 참된 효성이
야 말로 부모를 섬기고 모시는 한국인들의 효의 기준입니다. 부군과의 약속을 하늘처럼 받들고 생명을 내어
놓는 자리까지 나아갔던 춘향의 애절한 사랑과 절개는 모든 한국 여성들의 삶의 푯대가 되어 있습니다. 자
신을 버린 왕과 지도자들 앞에서도 백의종군으로 목숨을 바쳐 국가와 민족을 구한 이순신 장군의 백절불굴
의 충성이야 말로 한민족의 자랑이요, 기개입니다.
이런 숭고한 전통들은 우연히 역사상에 나타난 한낱 사건들이 아닙니다. 하늘이 이 민족을 준비하고, 그 전
통 위에 메시아를 세우기 위한 기대섭리였던 것입니다. 그리하여 마침내 이 한반도의 정기를 타고 인류의
참부모요, 만왕의 왕께서 하늘의 인침을 받고 현현하시게 된 것입니다.
인류의 갈 길
존경하는 귀빈 여러분, 이제 인류의 갈 길은 확실해졌습니다. 하늘이 참부모님을 통해 밝혀주신 D-Day를 앞
에 놓고 주저할 것이 무엇이 있겠습니까? 이제 919일 밖에 남지 않았습니다. 여러분의 바쁜 장도에는 하늘
의 축복이 함께하실 것입니다.
인류역사의 흐름을 섭리사적 눈으로 살펴보면 시대의 변천은 크게 3단계로 대별 됩니다. 첫째는 ‘물정시대’,
즉 물본주의적 물질 우선시대입니다. 그리고 두번째로는 ‘인정시대’, 즉 인간의 지식과 감정을 앞세워 세계를
지배해 왔던 인간 중심주의 시대입니다.
그러나 이런 시대는 과도기적 시대입니다. 인간이 타락성을 벗어던지고 본연의 모습을 찾아, 하나님을 아버
지로 모시고 통일된 한 가족을 이루어 사는 시대로 진입하는데 거쳐야 할 과정적인 시대라는 것입니다. 결
혼축복을 통해 내외 양면으로 성별된 터 위에 절대적인 기준을 세우고, ‘위하는 삶의 길’을 가야할 마지막 단
계의 시대가 ‘천정시대’입니다. 즉 한 분 하나님의 심정에 회귀되는 천일국의 시대를 열어가고 있는 때가 오
늘 우리가 살고 있는 바로 이 시대라는 것을 명심, 또 명심하시기 바랍니다.
실체적 천일국 시대가 펼쳐지면 이 땅위에 ‘영연세협회’가 중심축의 자리에 서서, 비로소 만유를 치리하게 될
것입니다. 영계와 육계를 연결하여 실질적인 통일을 완성하고 천리와 천도로 섭리를 경륜하게 된다는 뜻입
니다. 이 땅에서 세속적인 차원의 선거를 더 이상 볼 수 없게 될 것이며, 교체축복결혼을 통해 인류는 한 가족
이 되어 태평성대를 누리면서 평화와 행복을 즐기게 될 것입니다. 그런 날이 이제 우리 눈앞에 다가오고 있
다는 것입니다.
그 날을 준비하는 일환으로 본인은 금년 2월 14일을 기해 ‘천력’의 출발을 만천하에 선포했던 것입니다. 기
존의 양력과 음력은 이제 가인과 아벨의 입장에 서서, 새로이 섭리를 기록하고 명시하는 ‘천력’을 보조하는
역할을 하게 될 것입니다.
이제 여러분은 참부모님의 가르침을 뼈에 아로새겨 실천하는 삶을 살아야 할 것입니다. 선택의 여지가 없습
니다. 지금부터 준비하지 않으면 분명히 낙오자가 될 것이기 때문입니다. 7천미터가 넘는 히말라야 산맥을
넘나들며 월동을 하는 재두루미의 용기와 기개를 우리도 배워야 할 것입니다.
인류를 위한 유언
여러분, 참부모님께서는 벌써 인류를 위한 유언을 준비해 남겼습니다. 일생에 여섯 일곱번이나 생사를 넘나
드는 옥고를 치르면서도 승리하여 준비한 유언서입니다. 영원한 인류의 교재-교본으로 여덟 종류의 책을 남
겼습니다. 권수로 말하면 1천여 권이 넘는 분량입니다. ‘문선명 선생 말씀선집’, ‘원리강론’, ‘천성경’, ‘가정맹세’
‘평화신경’, ‘천국을 여는 문 참가정’, ‘평화의 주인 혈통의 주인’, ‘세계경전’ 이렇게 여덟 종류의 서적입니다. 이
교본들은 여러분이 영계에 들어가서도 읽고 공부해야할 책들입니다. 결코 인간의 두뇌에서 나온 말이나 가
르침이 아닙니다. 하늘이 불쌍한 인류를 구원하기 위해 주신 천도를 가르치는 교재, 교본이기 때문입니다.
여러분은 이제 먼저 여러분의 가정에서 위에 열거한 교재-교본을 중심삼고 훈독회의 전통을 세워야 할 것입
니다. 한 가족 3대가 새날을 시작하면서 먼저 하늘의 말씀을 훈독하고, 새로운 마음으로 훈독의 삶을 실천하
는 전통을 세우라는 것입니다. 영계와 육계가 동시에 참부모님을 모시고 같은 천도의 말씀을 매일 훈독하는
세상을 만들자는 것입니다. 이렇게 되면 제아무리 사탄이 여러분의 혈통을 타고 앉아 준동할지라도 훈독회
의 전통 앞에서는 설자리가 없어지는 것입니다. 정오정착적 기준에서 그림자 없는 삶을 살아가는 그런 가정
에 하나님의 축복이 내리지 않는다면, 어느 누구에게 주시겠습니까? 이런 하늘의 가정들이 이 땅에 가득할
때 이 지구성은 자동적으로 ‘One Family Under God’의 뜻이 완성 된 지상-천상천국이 될 것입니다.
여러분, 본인의 일생을 솔직담백하게 담아 내놓은 자서전이 작년에 출간되었습니다. 본인은 이 책을 통해
인류를 위한 하늘의 뜻이 어디에 있으며, 자식된 우리 인간으로서 걸어야할 길이 어디 있는가를 자세하게 보
여주고 있습니다. 초부득삼, 칠전팔기의 전형적인 삶이었습니다. 본인은 이 책 또한 훈독 교재-교본 못지않
게 실증적 차원에서 참된 진리의 삶을 보여주는 교본이라고 자신하고 여러분께 권하는 바입니다. 천명을 따
라 구십평생을 걸어온 본인의 삶을 가감 없이 담아놓은 이 참사랑의 기록을 다시 한번 정독하시어 큰 깨달
음을 받으시기 바랍니다.
정오정착의 삶은 그림자를 만들지 않는 삶이라고 했습니다. 우리 모두가 발광체가 되어 빛을 주는 삶을 산
다면 그림자가 생길 틈이 없습니다. 받는 자는 빚을 지는 자입니다. 여러분 모두는 이제 그 빚을 갚기 위해
불쌍하고 가난한 자의 눈물을 닦아주고, 어두운 곳을 밝혀주는 영원한 참사랑의 발광체 된 삶을 사시기 바랍
천지인부모 시대 선포
여러분, 지난 천력 5월 8일 새벽 2시 20분과 5월 15일 새벽 3시 25분, 이렇게 양일에 걸쳐 미국 라스베이거
스에서 하나님을 중심삼은 천지인 참부모님의 특별선포가 있었습니다.
그런데 여기서 3시25분의 3수는 초부득삼의 3시대를 대표하기도 하며 구약, 신약, 성약의 3시대를 상징하
는 수입니다. 그리고 25분의 25수는 100의 4분의 1을 상징합니다. 이제 참부모님 양위분께서는 최종일체
를 이루어 완성, 완결, 완료의 기준에서 전체, 전반, 전권, 전능의 시대를 봉헌 선포하신 것입니다.
더불어 알렉산더 헤이그 미국 국무장관의 승화식을 계기로 중생, 부활 승화식을 생애노정 중에 완료하기 위
한 제1, 제2, 제3 이스라엘 승리식을 한국으로 이양함을 선포했습니다.
천지인 참부모 정착 실체 말씀 선포대회
그리하여 이제 하나님의 조국과 고향은 한국이 됩니다. 한국을 하나님의 조국으로 발표함으로써 ‘천지인 참
부모 정착 실체 말씀 선포대회’도 한국에서 완성을 보게 됩니다. 일자는 7월 8일로 선포되었습니다.
이로써 천주의 모든 경계선이 철폐됩니다. 따라서 자주적 하나님을 중심하고 천지가 밤낮없이 하나님의 치
리하에 천지인 참부모님의 도움을 받아 영원히 존속하게 됩니다.
귀빈 여러분,
이런 심각하고 귀한 시대를 맞이하여 여러분의 삶에도 이제 혁명적인 천주적 변화가 와야 할 것입니다. 그
런 의미에서 하늘이 주시는 오늘의 메시지를 다시 한번 요약해 봅니다.
첫째, 모든 축복가정은 먼저 가정 안에서 하나님을 중심에 모시고 부모와 자녀가 완전 하나가 되는 훈독교육
을 매일 실천하라는 것입니다. 원리교육, 참부모님께서 주신 교재-교본 교육, 참부모님 자서전 내용 교육, 그
리고 원리본체론의 절대성 교육을 철저히 시켜야 한다는 것입니다.
둘째, 하늘은 이제 중생과 부활의 승화권 은사를 가정단위까지 허락하셨다는 것입니다. 여기에는 부모와 자
녀들간의 완전일체를 필요조건으로 하고 있습니다. 절대부모, 절대자녀의 기준을 세워 절대가정을 세우라
는 것입니다.
셋째, 참부모님의 피땀어린 고난의 은사로 인류는 이제 탕감복귀시대권을 벗어났다는 것입니다. 따라서 우
리 모두는 참부모님 재세시에 가정, 종족, 민족, 국가, 세계까지 지옥권을 해방시켜야 할 책임이 있다는 것을
잊지 말아야 할 것입니다. 탕감복귀시대가 끝났으니 무슨 시대가 도래하겠습니까? 하나님과 참부모님을 중
심삼은 승리권의 태평성대만이 영원하게 될 것입니다.
넷째, 우리는 이제 하나님의 직접 주관권 시대로 진입하고 있다는 점입니다. 여러분, 하늘이 선포한 D-Day가
3년도 채 남지 않았다고 했습니다. 영계의 가족까지도 지상재림시켜 원리 본체론 교육을 받게 하고, 한 가정
에서 8대까지 동거동락하며 함께 살아야 할 천주안식권의 시대에 들어섰다는 사실을 명심, 또 명심하시기
바랍니다. 아-주!
다시한번 오늘 이 섭리적인 행사를 빛내주기 위해 왕림해 주신 여러분께 거듭 심심한 감사의 뜻을 전합니
다. 부디 건강하시고 하늘의 사랑을 받는 삶을 사시어, 우리가 다시 만날 때는 더 큰 존귀와 영광을 하나님께
돌려드릴 수 있게 되기를 빌겠습니다.
여러분과 여러분의 가정, 그리고 국가 위에 만왕의 왕 하나님의 축복이 함께 하시길 축원합니다.
