The Kingdom Of Heaven Will Be Constructed On This Earth Centering On You

“If you become the person who can act in place of the ideology of the universal Kingdom of Heaven to unfold the movement of God’s love, life and truth, then the world of peace will be built on this earth. Therefore, your own parents are not the only parents, your own siblings are not the only siblings and your own children are not the only children. When you become the person who can regard all people as your parents, siblings and children, when you look upon the many people who are suffering in the world of death, you will not be able to relate with them without tears. When you look at your siblings or someone younger, you will feel a strong sense of responsibility to save them, and with tears you will make every effort to carry it out. If you truly become this kind of person, then the Kingdom of Heaven will be constructed on this earth centering on you.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

Love Yourself

Love yourself not because of who you are in the eyes of others

and not because of the person who you think you should be

 

Love yourself because the seed of God resides in you

and because your actions in life can turn to be fertilizers to grow

 

Love yourself not because of what you have achieved

and not because of the degrees and praises

 

Love yourself because you can resemble to your Father

and because you were given creativity to love like Him

 

Love yourself because you have the ability to grow when you are pushed down

and because of the hard-earned chances for forgiveness which brings unity

 

Love yourself not because you have a body for vanity

but because you can use it to love even your enemy.

 

Love yourself to see the light which can radiate through you

and bring harmony for the sick, mute, deaf and blind.

Loving One’s Enemies Can Reconcile Warring Nations

My entire life has been one of persecution and mistreatment. Yet you see that I am not tired. I keep moving, step by step, leaving footprints as I go. When I turn around I can taste a precious joy at seeing them behind me. Up ahead there is nothing but persecution coming at me, like a headwind pushing against me. But I feel great exaltation when I turn around and look behind me, and I see people of all races following me. I see peace, harmony and unity. That is so beautiful and valuable to me that I then can move ahead even more strongly.

Consider the Japanese people and the Korean people. They were enemies for quite a long time. But today, the Japanese members are pledging their service and loyalty under me, a Korean man. They are even willing to marry Korean spouses. Isn’t that amazing? They are not pledging their lives for the sake of Rev. Moon; not at all. They are pledging their lives for the sake of the true love which I pioneered and championed. In this way, the enemy nations of Japan and Korea are being reconciled.

When Jesus was on earth there was a wall of hatred between the great Roman Empire and the little nation of Israel because one was conqueror and the other the conquered. Jesus knew that the only way to conquer Rome was through love. Rome conquered Israel with military power, but Israel could conquer Rome through love. Even though Jesus was crucified, he could still pray for God to forgive the very people who killed him. No power could be any greater. Love can overcome any walls, no matter how high and thick. Jesus knew that individuals have enemies, families have enemies, and tribes and nations have enemies. Hatred and animosity always cause killing on each level, and only one strategy can break down this wall – love your enemy.

The fallen world always responds to animosity by seeking revenge. If God and Jesus had used the method of revenge, however, then there would not be one human being left here on earth because God would have extinguished them all in retribution. A great movement of restoration only comes from this ideology of love. Only the power of love could begin the new history and new age. When a person has the power to love even his enemies, he is truly a giant and there is nothing he cannot deal with or embrace. Ultimately that person shall conquer the world in God’s way. Christianity has always possessed that ideology, and God sees that as long as Christians pursue that doctrine then they shall conquer.
