The Task of Believers

What is the consequence of the fall today? The eternal Creator is the Father, yet our not being able to call him “Father” is the consequence and source of bitterness of the fall. Because Jesus understood this well, he appeared to humankind personally and tried to guide them with loving hands, but they did not fathom his heart. Although he spoke words of love, they ignored him. Although he shed tears of grief, they did not understand his situation.

You who are living on earth today must demonstrate filial piety to your parents and be loyal to the nation. In other words, you must walk the path of human ethics. Jesus came with the mission to join the heavenly principles with human ethics. Who comprehended this heart of Jesus? Today there are many people who betray Jesus and forget his heart, but people 2,000 years ago did not understand Jesus any better. You have to reflect whether you are true Christians.

What is that which you must achieve and restore now? It is understanding the heart of Jesus and comforting the heart of God, Who has been grieving for 6,000 years. You should repent from the position of the people of 2,000 years ago, who caused God deeply penetrating grief because they failed to attend Jesus. You must also repent that you are ignorant of the practical reality.

Who followed Jesus to the end without forsaking him? The twelve apostles of Jesus? No, the three disciples among the twelve apostles also could not believe in and follow Jesus to the end.

Although Jesus tried to introduce the love of God to humankind and tried to put that love into practice, he passed away without building a substantial relationship of love with humankind. You have to understand that although Jesus conveyed the words of love and had a heart that burned with love, he passed away without having found one person whom he could hold tight and interact with as, My son, My father, and share the love that runs between parent and child.

You have to understand the heart and situation of Jesus, who cried in anguish through the sleepless night in the Garden of Gethsemane, even as the disciples were dozing off. There were many people who liked Jesus’ words of love, but 2,000 years ago, Jesus did not have any place to give his love.

Without connecting to this heart of Jesus, you cannot forge a parent-child relationship with him. Moreover, you cannot make the bond of husband and wife through Jesus, and you cannot stand in the position of loyal subjects and women of fidelity.

We are to comfort and liberate his heart, which is immersed in the historical sorrow of the 6,000 years when he called God “Father” and clung to Him. When we cling to the distressed heart of the Father and call Him, with just that one word, Heaven and earth that have been divided will be joined again. If you cannot set this standard again, then the sorrow of God will never leave you. You will not be able to escape from the condition of judgment by God.

What then must you do to accomplish this task? What must you do to understand the will of Jesus? You have to become a person who knows how to live according to your original mind and according to how you are taught, and walk the same way Jesus walked.

Noah Traveled the Path of Adventure

Let us now reflect back on our ancestors of the past. When we look at the life of Noah first, we will find that it was not a smooth and even life. How do you think Noah must have felt when he received the commandment, “I will judge the world with water 120 years from now, so build an ark on the top of Mount Ararat”? It was not a feat that took twelve days, nor twelve years. It took 120 years. The commandment to build an ark on top of Mount Ararat was completely out of step with the reality of that time.

When you look at the actual situation of Noah, who carried out that kind of commandment, he might be considered a truly insane person, one who was fully out of touch with his time. Noah, who received such enormous directives from God, made a firm determination within himself. He persevered not for one day, but for a period of 120 years, wishing for that one day to come. You must understand that Noah was truly the adventurous champion, unprecedented in the 1,600 years of prior history. He was raised before Heaven representing that history.

Noah, who maintained absolute faith in the commandment as the will of the covenant, did not pay much attention to all those conditions. Once he decided, he did not care whether God intervened or whether the people of the world cursed at him. Since he had already embarked on the path for the sake of the will, putting his life on the line and having forsaken it, none of these matters posed any problem. Thus, he silently traveled through the course of ordeals that continued for such a long period of 120 years.

Noah must have faced criticisms in his family. Society must have greatly reproached him. Yet nobody could stop the footsteps of Noah, who began his journey to single-mindedly pioneer the heavenly path that humankind does not understand and has not traveled before, the path that no one in the course of sixteen hundred years had walked before. You must keep in mind that Noah was an adventurous person who could cast aside all opposition, even if the environment of society of that time obstructed him and all the people of the world pushed him back.

Noah made headway with dogged determination, regardless of what kinds of tests and tribulations he faced. After 120 years passed, he could erect the one restored family that Adam’s family had lost. You must understand such a historical background.

You Are Being Loved At This Very Moment

Just because it is dark and empty

Just because it feels lonely

Just because it seems your are trapped

Just because it feels it will never end

You are still worthy

You are still enough

You are still great

You are still magical

 

Just because you are a one of a kind,

unique child of God

 

Believe in yourself as much as He believes in You!

Often

Often, our life is not aligned with God,

Often, our heart just misleads us,

Often, our mind is scattered, in pieces,

Often, we are torn and tear others into pieces.

 

Often, we want to live in a better way,

Often, we are careless how others feel,

Often, we simply turn away,

Often, we are proud for our deeds.

 

Often, our mind goes to the east,

And often, our body stays in the west,

Often, we loose harmony,

and often, our days are in disunity.

 

Often, we cannot see the Light,

Often, we claim to be right,

Often, we fail to admit,

Often, our actions are fake.

 

Always, there is a way,

Always, He, who is still waiting,

Always, Salvation and Truth,

Always, Pray, Redeem and Change,

 

So God’s Blessings can be upon on you

and through you on others!

God Believes in You

You will succeed, my daughter

You will succeed, my son

You will accomplish greatness

Because I know who you are

Deep inside

You are the light

To shine on this world

To raise consciousness

To raise wholeheartedness

 

So, don’t have any doubts my daughter

So, don’t have any doubts my son

You will achieve all your dreams

You will live in beauty and prosperity

I have faith in you

You should believe, too

You are the one who matters

To make this world into whole

To re-create the future of love

And have an abundant life

For all

SMM Quotes – 244

“Unless words and action are one, they result in evil. If we harmonize on all sides we are balanced. If we don’t harmonize, we lose our spiritual balance and it is almost impossible for us to right ourselves. The same is true of our faith – if we lean to one side we lose harmony and harmony cannot easily be recovered, even with hundreds of thousands of times the effort. So to keep from turning aside from our path, you must be right and true in your words and actions – behavior and feelings to draw the boundary between gain and loss in your religious life. Even one hundredth of second will make or break your fate.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

Happy indeed the man whom God corrects!

Happy indeed the man whom God corrects!
Then do not refuse this lesson from Shaddai.
For he who wounds is he who soothes the sore,
and the hand that hurts is the hand that heals.
Six times he will deliver you from sorrow,
and the seventh, evil shall not touch you.
In time of famine, he will save you from death,
and in wartime from the stroke of the sword.
You shall be safe from the lash of the tongue,
and see the approach of the brigand without fear.
You shall laugh at drought and frost,
and have no fear of the beasts of the earth.
You shall have a pact with the stones of the field,
and live in amity with wild beasts.
You shall find your tent secure,
and your sheepfold untouched when you come.
You shall see your descendants multiply,
your offspring grow like the grass in the fields.
In ripe age you shall go to the grave,
like a wheat sheaf stacked in due season.
All this, we have observed: it is true.
Heed it, and do so to your profit.

 

Job 5:17-27

The best is yet to come

An open letter to God…

Prayers for Everybody

Dear Father,

This is again a letter to You, although, You can read my heart easily, I also would like to express my desire to re-connect, to be one again with You.

I’m sure, You remember, there were times, when we, You and I spent meaningful and valuable hours together. I wish to say there were days but it wouldn’t be true. I was never able to give You shelter in my heart even for 24 hours. I just so easily can sink back to my routines, my vain old self – though I always feel I could finally shake that off for good, for ever…

I’m longing for the times to be together with You, Father, not just what we had, but what is yet to come. I’m sure, the best is yet to come…

I might not have as many years here on Earth as much once…

My daylight is ending soon

Sometimes it’s half of a life to recognize where the straightest path is…

Prayers for Everybody

It has been a nice life

Could have been better

Closer to You, God

Not just in concepts

And beautiful ideas

But all the times

When I was tried

Put into misery

I should have been more aware

How to manifest Your love

Because You never complain

Neither You are unrigtheous

Only fight with a reason

What correlates with Your Creation

Vanity is not in Your vocabulary, Father

Nor the selfish desires

Though You are the master of

Ceaseless giving and

Love in action with

Firm desires,

Strong dedication,

For the Day to become one

You and I,

You and all of us,

Once and for all,

Again.

My daylight is ending,

Chances are getting a few,

And I’m losing my energy

As I fight the days through.

I think, I need to accept,

Father,

I might not be Your champion,

Or at least not the ultimate,

The best son,
