  • The principle as the truth has been revealed historically as follows: Original copy of the Divine Principle (May 10, 1952), Explanation of the Divine Principle (Aug. 15, 1957), Exposition of the Divine Principle (May 1, 1966) and Original Divine Principle started to be educated (Oct. 10, 2008). Exceptionally there has not been any new book published for ODP besides the lecture notes. When you see them, you realize they are the contents of the principle detailed by the ideas of the Unification thought and some of Father's words, which, accordingly, would leave some members confused in thinking the workshop seems based on lectures that explore a deeper level of the Principle.

  • Birth of Jesus by MASTER FRANCKE 1424
  • The precise year of Jesus' birth, which some historians place between 7 and 2 BC, is unknown. His birth is mentioned in two of the four canonical gospels. By the early-to-mid 4th century, the Western Christian Church had placed Christmas on December 25, a date later adopted in the East.

  • Anno Domini (AD or A.D.)=Mediveal Latin, = In the Year of The Lord.
    Before Christ (BC or B.C.) are designations used to label or number years used with the Julian and Gregorian calendars.
    This calendar era is based on the traditionally reckoned year of the conception or birth of Jesus of Nazareth, with AD counting years after the start of this epoch, and BC denoting years before the start of the epoch. There is no year zero in this scheme, so the year AD 1 immediately follows the year 1 BC. This dating system was devised in 525, but was not widely used until after 800.
    Gregorian Calendar was proclaimed by the Pope 1582, to better fit the Christian Easter celebration.
  • Jesus was to come upon this worldwide foundation of preparation, and through his teachings
    he was to bring together Judaism, Hellenism, Buddhism and Confucianism.
    He was to unify all religions and civilizations into one worldwide civilization
    founded upon the Christian Gospel. /DP page 327
    This phenomenal period of preparation for the messiah occurred throughout the civilized world with remarkable coincidence. No adequate explanation has ever been offered for this global phenomenon. In the context of the Principle, however, this period of religious awakening is clearly explained. It is simply God prepating the world for the birth of the true parents and the subsequent expansion of the original ideal. God provided visions of truth and love to Lao Tzu, Confucius, sages in the Vedic tradition, Mahavira, Lord Buddha and Zarathustra, who established lasting religious traditions, and God inspired philosophers, scientists and artists who pioneered new vistas of human knowledge and creativity.

  • A lunar calendar is a calendar that is based on cycles of the lunar phase. Because there are about twelve lunations (synodic months) in a solar year, this period (354.37 days) is sometimes referred to as a lunar year.
    A common purely lunar calendar is the Islamic calendar or Hijri Qamari calendar. A feature of the Islamic calendar is that a year is always 12 months, so the months are not linked with the seasons and drift each solar year by 11 to 12 days. It comes back to the position it had in relation to the solar year approximately every 33 Islamic years. It is used mainly for religious purposes, and in Saudi Arabia it is the official calendar. In other systems, a lunar calendar may include extra months added that synchronize it with the solar calendar.

  • Jesus from the lineage of David, Jacob, Isak and Abraham.
    Abraham the forefather of the 3 main Religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.
  •  Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.
    In so doing, he received the entire inheritance from John who was the representative of the Old Testament dispensation. John didn't realize this, but Jesus had to come under John and be baptized by him. In that way, he received the inheritance of Christianity. The world doesn't know this.

  • Jesus had one purpose throughout the three years of his public ministry: acceptance. He could not fulfil his mission otherwise. From the very first day, he preached the gospel without equivocation, so that the people could hear the truth and accept him as the Son of God. The word of God should have led them to accept him. However, when Jesus saw that the people were not likely to receive him by the words of God alone, he began to perform mighty works. He hoped that people could recognize him through his miracles.
    "Even though you do not believe me, believe the miracles, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me, and I in the Father” John 10:38
    Jesus accomplished healing by chasing out evil spirits or demons. Jesus' great spiritual force caused the evil spirit to depart and this allowed the victim to immediately become normal. The evil influencing factor had been removed.

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." This is an amazing statement /SMM

    Forward to "A Testimony to God's Word, In Regard to Divine Principle"
    Gil Ja Sa EuSeptember 11, 2013
    As I am writing this book, A Testimony to God's Word in Regard to Divine Principle, in compliance with Father's direction, I will start with an excerpt from Father's Words.
    "The Word is the record of the tradition by which Teacher gained total victory over Satan. This tradition must be embedded within our everyday lives for us to bring about the Realm of Liberation for Heaven and Earth. You must spread the Word for which Teacher had to risk his life. Since the Word is the Word from Heaven, Teacher can work the miracle of resurrection centering on the Word even in the spirit world. So the Word is not something that simply flows by us and is gone. It can be compared to Teacher's final testament to his descendants. One day, Teacher will pass away. When he does, he must leave behind the Word. You must realize how rational the Word is, how principled it is, and how it has the power to grasp people's hearts."4/16/99
    "The Word spoken by Teacher is filled with energy, and people are drawn to it. They continue to follow the Word, even when they are told not to. The Word spoken by Teacher is the eternal textbook. Teacher teaches through revelation, so miraculous things happen. Therefore Satan cannot lay his hands on it. We must guide people to read the Principle."2/9/02
    I joined the church in 1955. At that time, there was an incident in which certain students and professors of Ehwa Woman's University and Yeonsei University were harshly persecuted to the point of being expelled from the school or fired. I was among the students expelled from Ehwa Woman's University during this incident.
    It was Teacher's [Sun Myung Moon's] Word, his Jeong Seong and his love that made it impossible for me to leave the Unification Church even after finding myself in this difficult situation. The profound and mysterious Word as spoken by Father penetrated into my heart. Moreover, an amazing spiritual power completely captivated me and led me to follow the Word even in the most difficult situation.
    We were young then, and the Principle and the Word spoken to us by Father were like nothing else in the world. We could not hope to fully comprehend his teachings. Just as my maternal grandmother used to feed me raw chestnuts as a child by first chewing them herself to make them more tender, Father would explain the Principle and the Word in a way that made it easier for us to digest. Father answered all the questions put to him by naïve and childish students.
    Father did not have the time to fully explain the Word in detail to everyone in the world. For this reason, he instructed me to spread his Word throughout the world without holding anything back, just as he had once done for us early members.

    A Testimony to God’s Word, In Regard to Divine Principle
    For example, readers of True Father’s autobiography will learn of his trips as a boy to the sea shore to catch eels, and he was skilled at trapping wild birds. He says he loved doing it and didn’t mind running eight miles to the water. Eu explains in the chapter, “True Father Receives His Calling from God” another reason: due to the Japanese control of the farming produce, many in his village were on the edge of starvation.
    “During this period, people in Korea did not have much to eat. So the younger children would say to Father, ‘Older brother, I want to eat some meat. I want something sweet.’ They didn’t have anything to eat, because the Japanese people took everything,” she reports, and “He caught many birds with such traps, and the children would eat roasted bird meat to their hearts’ content.”
    Every chapter it seems has a gem of insight that humanizes True Father even as it illustrates the extraordinary achievement of every day of his life.
    Soon after True Father arrived in the United States to personally lead the movement, he got the order from God that he must meet President Richard Nixon. She writes that he had no clue how to do this and cried in tears every night, but to his family and to the church members he showed not a hint of self-doubt. As she explains: “…Father prayed with many tears. Father cried when he prayed, but he couldn’t cry in front of Mother or his children, let alone in front of the members. Why? Because Father was the hope of all hopes, Father thought about how we could follow him if we saw him shedding tears because he was worried or because he didn’t know what to do... Father told us that he told Mother, his children, and us that he was confident, but then he would turn around and shed tears. We were dumbfounded when we later learned this. At that time, the people around Father were recommending that he not meet President Nixon.” Having learned this, it casts a nuance on Father’s broad, radiant smile in the photo of him shaking hands with President Nixon early in 1974.
    Mrs. Eu expands on the notion some have heard at seminars that God experiences life through the bodies of people who are aligned with his ideas. As she explains: “Father once said, ‘God grows together with humans!’ What kind of amazing thought is this? I could not understand how a perfect being such as God grows together with humans. So I asked Father, ‘Does God really grow like a child? Christians will think we are crazy when they hear this. They keep persecuting us, because we say different things, but now you say that God grows? Then Father said, ‘God of course is perfect, but love cannot be felt unless there is a partner. You will know this if you have children. If your child is five-years old, you will have to play with your child as if you are a five-year-old as well.’”
    We learn that True Father had to struggle with all the emotions that we feel in the course of life. He had to force himself to forgive Kim Il Sung of North Korea before meeting him at the historic reunion in December 1991. His attitude is recounted by Mrs Eu this way:
    “Before Father went to North Korea to meet Kim, he went to Hawaii to offer Heaven the last prayer so he could overcome his hatred for Kim. ‘I can’t hate him even if the whole world hates him and accuses him of being a murderer. If I hate him, too, he cannot be saved. Then what kind of heart will I have to have when I see him? Yes, I will go there as his father who gave birth to him. People might say, ‘Kim Il Sung is a murderer, execute him, shoot him,’ but if his father were there, he  would still say with the heart of a father, ‘My son is a bad person, but I still want him in front of me. ’ Kim Il Sung’s father would do anything to save his son’s life. I will go with that kind of heart.” She concludes that the trust created at that meeting in 1991 was possible only because Kim could feel Father’s sincere love.
    Mrs. Eu concludes her book with a discussion of the meaning of the words, “Hoondok,” and her prediction that our movement is entering an age of Hoondok in which the leaders who continually read True Father’s words will gain ascendance over those who do not. In her book’s promotional tour through cities on the East Coast she has been referencing what she refers to as a Hoondok revolution that has been gaining momentum in Southeast Asia for two years.
    This book is bound to have great impact in the circles of serious devotional practice of our movement. Without question this is the book of the year. Make that book of the decade.

  • The Shroud of Turin or Turin Shroud (Italian: Sindone di Torino, Sacra Sindone) is a linen cloth bearing the image of a man who appears to have suffered physical trauma in a manner consistent with crucifixion.[1] It is keptin the royal chapel of the Cathedral of Saint John the Baptist in Turin, northern Italy. The image on the shroud is commonly associated with Jesus Christ, his crucifixion and burial. It is much clearer in black-and-white negative than in its natural sepia color. The negative image was first observed in 1898, on the reverse photographic plate of amateur photographerSecondo Pia, who was allowed to photograph it while it was being exhibited in the Turin Cathedral.

  • Unification Theology: Jesus was truly victorious over death.
    Providentially the resurrection was most necessary. Since Jesus' mission was God's way to carry out His original ideal of creation, He had to overcome the awful setback to His plan caused by the rejection of His son. How could God revitalize the dispersed and seemingly discredited messianic movement and use it to further His primary intention for man? The reappearance of Jesus Christ was God's way of re-inspiring the disciples and re-igniting their enthusiasm. The entire Christian community was prepared to receive the outpouring of the Spirit at Pentecost. Because of the resurrection, Jewish Christians could preach to their countrymen: "This Jesus God has raised up, as we are all witnesses ... Therefore let the house of Israel clearly recognize that same Jesus whom you crucified, God has made both Lord and Christ" (Acts 2:32, 36).
    Next we must look at Divine Principle's interpretation of the manner of resurrection. Like most liberal Protestants, Unificationists believe that Jesus' resurrection was spiritual and not physical. A resurrection of the flesh contradicts our modern scientific world view. Bultmann, among others, would insist that if we are to make Christianity credible we have to demythologize ancient doctrines like Jesus' fleshly resurrection and physical ascension to heaven. Brunner likewise insists upon the resurrection of the body, yes; but resurrection of the flesh, no!Ref: Unification Theology, Dr Young Oon Kim

  • The Ten Commandments of Hinduism according to sage Patanjali (PYS 2.30-2.32), are: (1) Nonviolence, (2) Truthfulness, (3) Non-steal­ing, (4) Celibacy or sense control, (5) Non-greed, (6) Purity of thought, word, and deed, (7) Contentment, (8) Austerity or renuncia­tion, (9) Study of scriptures, and (10) Surrendering to God with faith­ful loving devotion.Compare these with the ten basic teachings of the Bible: (1) Thou shall not kill, (2) Do not lie, (3) Do not steal, (4) Do not commit adultery, (5) Do not covet, (6) Do not divorce your wife, (7) Do for others what you want them to do for you, (8) If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn the other cheek, (9) Love your neighbor as yourself, and (10) Love the Lord with all thy heart.The Eightfold Noble Path of Buddhism are: Right view, right thought, right speech, right deeds, right livelihood, right effort, right resolve, and right meditation. Abstinence from all evil, performance of good acts, and purification of the mind is the doctrine of Buddha.The five cardinal principles of Islam are: (1) Faith in God, His message, and His messengers; (2) Meditation and prayer on the glory, greatness, and the message of God for spiritual growth; (3) Helping others by giving charity; (4) Austerity for self-purification by fasting in the month of Ramadan; and (5) Pilgrimage to the Holy places.All Great Masters have given us Truth revealed by the Supreme. Krishna taught us to feel spiritual oneness by seeing divinity in each and everyone. Buddha taught us to purify ourselves and have compassion for all creatures. Christ asked us to love all beings as we love ourselves. Muhammad taught us to submit to the will of God and act like His instruments.In some religions, however, only the members of one’s own sect are considered favorites of God, and others are consid­ered infidels. The Vedas teach not only mere religious tolerance but the acceptance of all other religions and prophets as analogous to one’s own. The Vedas say: Let noble thoughts come to us from everywhere (RV 1.89.01). Different religious teachings are but different ex­pressions of the Supreme. They are to be respected, not regarded as instruments of division. The dignity and welfare of humanity lie in the unity of races and religion (Swami Harihar). True knowledge of relig­ion breaks down all barriers, including the barriers between faiths (Gandhi). Any religion that creates walls of conflict and hatred among people in the name of God is not a religion, but selfish politics in disguise. We have no right to criticize any religion, sect, or cult in any way. Differences in human interpretation of scriptures ¾ the transcendent voice ¾ are due to taking the literal meaning, prejudice, ignorance, taking lines out of context, as well as distortion, misinterpretation, and interpolation with personal selfish motives. Profound Gratitude to http://www.gita-society.com/section2/2_chap_16.htm

  • Eastern Orthodox Church, the Church descended from the Imperial Church of the Byzantine Empire
  • The Russian Cross is a variation of the Christian cross. The cross has three horizontal crossbeams, the top representing the plate with INRI, and the bottom, a footrest. In Russian Orthodox tradition, the lower beam is slanted, with the side to the viewer's left usually being higher. According to a recent Russian Orthodox Tradition, when Saint Andrew was preaching in southern Russia, he used a life-sized cross in this design and tilted the footrest to show that those on Christ's right would ascend to Heaven, while those on Christ's left would descend into Hell. Consequently, in the Russian Orthodox Church this cross is sometimes called the Cross of Saint Andrew. In the Greek Orthodox Church, it remains straight, as in some earlier representations.
  • The period of approximately 210 years from the time when the pope was taken captive into Avignon in 1309 A.D. until the Religious Reformation took place in 1517, centring on Luther, was the period in which to restore by indemnity, as the substantial time-identity, the 210-year period from the time of the Jewish captivity for 70 years in Babylon until they aroused both political and religious reformation centring on Malachi.

  • The Veil of Veronica, which according to legend was used to wipe the sweat from Jesus’ brow as he carried the cross is also said to bear the likeness of the Face of Christ. Today, several images claim to be the Veil of Veronica. There is an image kept in Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome which purports to be the same Veronica as was revered in the Middle Ages. Very few inspections are recorded in modern times and there are no detailed photographs. The most detailed recorded inspection of the 20th century occurred in 1907 when Jesuit art historian Joseph Wilpert was allowed to remove two plates of glass to inspect the image.

  •  Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist.
    In so doing, he received the entire inheritance from John who was the representative of the Old Testament dispensation. John didn't realize this, but Jesus had to come under John and be baptized by him. In that way, he received the inheritance of Christianity. The world doesn't know this.

  • Early Easter morning 1936, after I had spent the entire night in prayer, Jesus appeared before me. He
    appeared in an instant, like a gust of wind, and said to me, “God is in great sorrow because of the
    pain of humankind. You must take on a special mission on earth having to do with Heaven’s work.”
    That day, I saw clearly the sorrowful face of Jesus. I heard his voice clearly. The experience of
    witnessing the manifestation of Jesus caused my body to shake violently, like a quaking aspen’s
    leaves trembling in a strong breeze. I was simultaneously overcome with fear so great I felt I might
    die and gratitude so profound I felt I might explode. Jesus spoke clearly about the work I would
    have to do. His words were extraordinary, having to do with saving humanity from its suffering and
    bringing joy to God. My initial response was, “I can’t do this. How can I do this? Why would you
    even give me a mission of such paramount importance?” I was truly afraid. I wanted somehow to
    avoid this mission, and I clung to the hem of his clothing and wept inconsolably. /from Biography

    C.T. = Completed Testament
    Introduction:
    More and more people know and accept that we live in the transition between the Piscean and Aquarian Age. In each such age shift usually the ancient wisdom is rewritten for the new age. So even this time.
    Master D.K. has planned to convey the new esoteric teaching in three phases. In the first phase, he collaborated with H. P. Blavatsky, and in the second phase of Alice A. Bailey. And in the 2000s, a third phase of teaching that is conveyed.
    Compare with Divine Principles (1973,1996,2005)
    Alice A. Bailey worked with a leader of a group of Tibetan lamas (monks).
    1948 published this book the first time, to prepare a team for the return of Christ, which they felt was close.
    Compare 1947 in Sun Myung Moon's life story
    p.30 Today humanity in a very special and unique center, between an unhappy past and a future that is full of promises about the return of Christ will be recognized and preparation for His arrival made. Our present time is full of promises and also full of problems.
    The world's fate, today and in the near future, are in the hands of human beings - and if it reverently can be expressed - the immediate activity of Christ.
    War agony, and the entire human family accident led Christ to the year 1945 come to a major decision - a decision that came to be expressed in two very important statements.
    He declared for the overall spiritual hierarchy and to all his servants and disciples on earth that He decided to show up again in a physical contact with humanity, if they would lay a foundation to establish right human relations;
    second, so He gave to the world (to be used by the "man on the street"), one of the oldest prayers that ever existed, but not allowed to be used by other than the most exalted spiritual beings.
    It reads as follows in translation:
    From the source of light within the mind of God Let light stream out in people's minds Let Light descend on Earth.
    From the center of love in the heart of God Let light stream out in people's minds May Christ return to Earth.
    From the center where the Will of God is known Let purpose guide the little wills of men - The purpose which the Masters know and serve.
    From the center we call the human race Let the Plan of Love and Light are worked out. And may it seal the door where evil exists.
    Let Light and Love and Power restore the Earth Plane.
    P. 45 ... circumstances and what will happen will not necessarily be exactly as Scripture seems to show. For example, as the Christian Scriptures say, He will certainly come "on the clouds of heaven" (Matt.26: 64). But of what importance is this when millions come and go on the clouds, every hour day and night?
    p. 56-57 It's a different world he now plans to return to and this is largely due to the intellectual development of mankind. This gives him enormous difficulties, because people's minds must now be reached and not just their hearts (as in former ages) about God's will be uföras intelligently on Earth.
    ... The currently accepted idea that he will return as a victor, omnipotent and irresistible, has no basis in reality. He eventually comes to lead His people, mankind into Jerusalem as a fact, based on a secure foundation, but it will not enter a jew city Jerusalem, but in a "Peace Place" (which is the "Jerusalem" meaning).
    p. 62 works of Christ and the preaching will be difficult to accept for the Christian world, yet lighter accepted in the East.
    He is the World preacher and not merely a Christian preacher.
    p. 69 "time of decision" as it is called in all hierarchical circles, occurred in the period between the full moon in June 1936 and the full moon in June 1945. The timing of the decision therefore covered 9 years (a relatively short period of time), it resulted in the decision that Christ would again prove or return in visible form on Earth as soon as possible, and considerably earlier than planned.
    Comment: 1936 was the year after that Sun Myung Moon of Jesus received the mission to meet the resurgence.
    Compare also the period 1936-45 with the period when Sun Myung Moon discovered the Divine Principles.

    At this time, July 6, 1935 in Qinghai, the 14th Dalai Lama was born.
    Another historical another spiritual giant.
    Tibet's now (2012) well-known leader the Dalai Lama!
    More parallels Korea and Tibet.
    1950 Korean War broke out.
    A war between ideologies ... the Communist Denial of God (North Korea)
    and God-respecting democracies! (South Korea)
    1951 attacked the Communist Mao's China Tibet.
    The Dalai Lama fled into exile in India.
    87,000 Tibetans were killed in the weeks ahead.
    p. 81 Christ came to end the Jewish dispensation which should have been the climax and disappeared as a religion along with the sun gone out Aries, Aries and into Pisces. He therefore presented Himself to them as their Messiah, manifested by the Jewish race. By rejecting Christ as the Messiah, then the Jewish race symbolically and practically remained in the sign of Aries, The scapegoat, they must again pass through - symbolically - in the sign Pisces, and recognize their Messiah when He comes again in Aquaries, sign Aquarius.
    Otherwise, they are to repeat their ancient sin not to react to human development. They rejected that which was new and spiritual in the desert, they repeated it again in Palestine 2000 years ago, they will be repeating this, when they are given the chance? The problem of the Jew is that he remains satisfied with the religion of more than 4000 years back and so far shows little interest in changing.

    3. 3. Christianity began in the Middle East in Jerusalem among Jewish Aramaic-speaking Semitic peoples of Judah (modern Israel, Palestinian Territories and Jordan). It quickly spread, initially to other Semitic peoples, in Parthian-ruled Assyria & Mesopotamia (modern Iraq), Roman-ruled Syria (ancient Aramea), Phoenicia (modern Lebanon), southern and easternAsia Minor (modern Turkey), and northwestern Persia (modern Iran) and Malta. From there it spread to Greece,Armenia, Egypt, Georgia, the Caucasus region and on into The Balkans, India, North Africa, Rome, Ethiopia, Nubia (modern Sudan) and Arabia, and eventually southern and western Europe (Later USA – N/S America).

Parents walk willingly the path of the cross for they love their children. Isn't this right? So, the true path of the cross will lead you to the true path of love. /SMM Life with the Physical Body is Very Short 1972
    6. 6. It is absolutely wrong for Unification Church members to think that we have nothing to do with Christianity. Why is that so? The Old Testament Age and New Testament Age existed in order to restore True Parents.
    7. 7. The Completed Testament Age also exists for the restoration of True Parents. The content of those three ages is the same: restoration of True Parents.
    8. 8. The Messiah is, in fact, True Parents; therefore, the content and the purpose of Judaism, Christianity and the Unification Church are the same. Then what is different? Judaism wanted to receive the Messiah on a national level, and then to expand it to the whole world. Christianity was formed after Jesus' death in order to receive the Messiah on the worldwide foundation.
    9. 9. What about the Completed Testament Age? It is the cosmic level, the time of the desire to receive the True Parents even in the spirit world. The dimension is different. You must clearly differentiate them from one another. / 1984.4.29. East Garden
    10. 10. Did his sacrifice on the cross then come to naught? Not at all (John 3:16). If it had, Christian history could not have existed. We can never deny the magnitude of the grace of redemption by the cross.
    11. 11. Therefore, it is true that our faith in the cross can bring about redemption. It is equally true that redemption by the cross has been unable to remove our original sin and restore us as men of the original nature who cannot commit sin; thus, it has been unable to establish the Kingdom of Heaven on earth. /DP73 page 142
    12. 12. My comment: Jesus have been present as Christ in his tranformed body during 2000 year of Chistianity. Forgiving sins yes – but still the Original Sin remains. No Christian can or will deny that fact. Children are being born with original sin generation after generation… Why?
    13. 13. I understand it so that Logos is both masculin and Feminin – Gods image. As male and female He created them in His image. Since Jesus did not achieve prefection together with a bride, he was only able to enter Paradise the second level, of three spiritual development steps. – Creation of New Adam & Eve unfulfilled.

    15. 15. Testimony from Spiritual World: Universal Link 1967 It is only during the last 50 years, that the Bible have gone out to all the earth's peoples in the way, that was predicted, this has now been done, it has been fulfilled, and my Return can then also take place hierarchically. I can well understand that my walking on earth two thousand years ago fills people's minds and human thoughts, and I have also told some of what took place.
    16. 16. With regard to my existence on Earth it was so that when I came to earth incarnated, I knew nothing about my mission, until I was 28 years old. Then my task was completely and clearly revealed. From childhood I clearly understood that I did not belong to this earth, I understood this absolutely clearly.
    17. 17. But what my mission actually was, I was not clear over. People have heard about my life on earth, and have heard that I started my mission. When I started my mission I had not only experienced what people call visions, I had had direct contacts, and then I understood clearly who I was, and what mission I had accepted.

    29. 29. 2008 The notion that Jesus had a biological father no longer belongs in the contemplative realm -- where many would prefer it remain. It has crash landed with a resounding thud, and is narrowed down to one distinct individual. But knowing that Zacharias was the father of Jesus is much more than just another interesting tidbit of information.
    30. 30. The Virgin And The Priest The Making Of The Messiah Mark Gibbs 2008 Not only does it turn two thousand years of Christian theology upside down, the truth of Jesus’ parentage opens up the possibility to understand other aspects of his life.
    31. 31. "As a priest who “walks blameless in the Lord,” Zacharias was recognized as God’s representative in the conception of his children. From the instant Mary’s impending pregnancy was announced, to the moment it was acknowledged, the only man mentioned by name in the narrative was Zacharias. On the evidence of Luke’s gospel, Zacharias is the sole candidate to be the father of Jesus." The Virgin And The Priest The Making Of The Messiah Mark Gibbs 2008
    32. 32. Who was Jesus' father? It is the same as Cain and Abel - one father had two descendants. When Mary conceived, it was in Zachariah's home, where she stayed for six weeks. Who is Jesus' father? (Zachariah.) I don't know!
    33. 33. You know well. You said it, not me. (Laughter.) Now is the time for everything to be revealed, there is nothing hidden. We come to know the truth, it is consistent and natural in every way. That is God's law, it is simple. /SMM 1992
    34. 34. At the time of Jesus, the law was such that if any unmarried woman were to become pregnant she was supposed to be stoned to death. In such a strict society, how could Jesus even think about demanding a younger sister to become his own bride? Let us imagine ourselves in that time when the younger sister Mary actually took away Elizabeth's husband and became pregnant. Then she gave birth to Jesus.
    35. 35. As Jesus grew up he was requesting to marry the younger sister from Elizabeth's family. Can you imagine that? It was virtually impossible, because if it had become known to the general public then the families of Zachariah and Jesus would have been destroyed. /SMM 1996
    36. 36. Time B.C. A.D. Deviced 525 Used 800 Pope 1582 Greg.Cal. Time
    37. 37. The Gregorian calendar, also called the Western calendar and the Christian calendar, is internationally the most widely accepted civil calendar. It was introduced by Pope Gregory XIII, after whom the calendar was named, by a decree signed on 24 February 1582 the decree, a papal bull, is known by its opening words, Inter gravissimas. Time
    38. 38. The motivation for the Gregorian Calendar reform was that the Julian calendar assumes that the time between vernal equinoxes is 365.25 days, when in fact it is presently almost 11 minutes shorter. The discrepancy results in a drift of about three days every 400 years. Because the spring equinox was tied to the celebration of Easter, the Roman Catholic Church considered this steady movement in the date of the equinox undesirable. Time

Or imagine Saul (St Paul) following Jesus as a believer in Jesus already while the Messiah/Christ was walking the earth.

    50. 50. i.e. Jesus came for Holy Marriage and have his family... give the Blessings to disciples and create a substantial KoH on Earth and in Heaven Remember St Paul thought and clearly said... 1 Corinthians 2:8 ~ "Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory." No talking here of the necessary of a Cross for Salvation - 1 crystal clear point to SMM and DP directly from St Paul
    51. 51. • Had Eve prayed to God when Lucifer approached her… • Had Adam prayed to God when Eve tempted him…
    52. 52. • Had the Scribes prayed to God about the return of Elijah, God would surely have told them that the Return of Elijah was manifest in John the Baptist, as Jesus claimed. • Had John prayed in prison… • Had Saul (later St Paul) prayed about Jesus and his followers he would surely not have percecuted the early Christians. Prayer is the Answer and brings Truth!

    61. 61. John the Baptist and Jesus alike depended upon the deep-seated religious hope for a coming reign of God and widespread popular unrest over conditions as they existed. But beyond that John had certain distinct advantages which could have greatly benefited Jesus. He undoubtedly had many sympathizers in the priestly class. His strictness surely attracted a considerable portion of the Pharisees, and it is likely that he could have rallied much of the Essene community to his side
    62. 62. Because of his preaching he was well-known and favorably regarded in Judea and Samaria, whereas Jesus' supporters came largely from Galilee to the north. By throwing all of his support behind the Nazarene, the Baptist could have provided the base for a nation-wide program of renewal and reconstruction.

Hence, he should have graduated from the individual level to the family level in order to stay the course. After the Fall, fallen Adam (& Eve) established a lineage connected to Satan.
    84. 84. This is the resaon Divine Principle teaches Jesus did not originally came to die on the cross. But to establish a family, have children, grandchildren and a new Gods pure sinless lineage on Earth. Thats why very logically Jesus had to promise to come again to fulfill this. What was fulfilled in the Cross was the indemnity-payment for rejecting Jesus! A New Messianic start = 2nd Israel = Christianity And faith in Jesus as Messiah have for 2000 years brought spiritual but not physical salvation.

    88. 88. The disciples well knew the status of Jesus, that he was Christ the Messiah. It is unbelievable how one (Judas) could do such an inconceivable harm to a righteous man for a few pieces of silver. Judas wanted to marry the sister of John the Baptist, who was providentially intended for Jesus. Judas, in this instance, stands in the position of Cain, representing Satan. In accordance with the Principle of restoration, therefore, it was crucial for Jesus to retrieve his wife from the hands of Satan. Jesus - Judas
    89. 89. Judas knew that Jesus, as the relative of Elizabeth, was in a better position to marry the sister of John the Baptist; therefore, he conspired with the Jewish Leadership, who in turn bribed him with thirty Pieces of silver.

    90. 90. "Yeshua" in First Century Hebrew Text This is how the name "Jesus" would have been written in ancient Hebrew documents. Jesus is the Greek name for the Hebrew name Joshua or Y'shua which means "The LORD or Yahweh is Salvation". "Yeshua"
    91. 91. Ichthys (more commonly spelled Ichthus, or sometimes Ikhthus, from Greek is the ancient and classical Greek word for "fish". Used by Early Christians as a secret symbol and now known colloquially as the "sign of the fish" or the "Jesus fish."
    92. 92. There are several other hypotheses as to why the fish was chosen.
    93. 93. There are several other hypotheses as to why the fish was chosen. • Recommendation of Clement of Alexandria to his readers (Paedagogus, III, xi) to engrave their seals with the dove or fish.
    94. 94. There are several other hypotheses as to why the fish was chosen. • Recommendation of Clement of Alexandria to his readers (Paedagogus, III, xi) to engrave their seals with the dove or fish. • Another probable explanation is that it is a reference to the scripture in which Jesus miraculously feeds 5,000 people with fish and bread.
    95. 95. • The ichthys may also relate to Jesus or his disciples as "fishers of men" (e.g., Mark 1:17).
    96. 96. • The ichthys may also relate to Jesus or his disciples as "fishers of men" (e.g., Mark 1:17). • Tertullian, in his treatise On Baptism, makes a pun on the word, writing that "we, little fishes, after the example of our Jesus Christ, are born in water."
    97. 97. • The ichthys may also relate to Jesus or his disciples as "fishers of men" (e.g., Mark 1:17). • Tertullian, in his treatise On Baptism, makes a pun on the word, writing that "we, little fishes, after the example of our Jesus Christ, are born in water." • Still another explanation could be the reference to The Sign of Jonah. Just like he was in the belly of a prehistoric fish so Christ was crusified, was entombed for three days, and then rose from the dead.
    98. 98. The early Christian faith was sometimes called The Way, (Acts 19:1,9,23; 24:22)
    99. 99. The early Christian faith was sometimes called The Way, (Acts 19:1,9,23; 24:22) Followers of the Way - "and [Saul who became Paul] asked for letters from him to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, both men and women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem," (Acts 9:2).

    101. 101. Jesus was called Rabbi, by respectful Jews, like Lazarus and Nicodemus, at the time. Probably Gamaliel and others as well. Jesus was a Jew, in the very traditional sense of what a Jew was, but he was also a Jew who was a Tzaddik, or holy man. The word " tzaddik" literally means "righteous one." The term refers to a completely righteous individual, and generally indicates that the person has spiritual or mystical power.

    106. 106. The 4 Gospels - TO WHOM? - Mark : mostly Gentiles, fairly new in their faith, and facing persecutions - A number of people in the New Testament are named Mark and any could, in theory, have been the author behind the gospel of Mark. Tradition has it that the Gospel According to Mark was written by Mark, a companion of Peter, who simply recorded what Peter preached in Rome (1 Peter 5:13)
    107. 107. The 4 Gospels - TO WHOM? - Mathew: better educated Jews who believe in Jesus, but argue over the Law - Matthew is considered the most “Jewish” gospel. - Matthew is recorded as one of Jesus’ original disciples in all four gospels and in Acts. In the gospel of Matthew he is described as a tax collector; in parallel accounts, however, the tax collector Jesus encounters is named “Levi.” Christians have traditionally thought that this was an example of a double naming.
    108. 108. The 4 Gospels - TO WHOM? - Luke: wealthier Gentile Christians in an urban setting, becoming complacent - Luke is mentioned three times in New Testament letters attributed to Paul. The inauthentic passages describe Luke as “the beloved physician.” The authentic passage describes him as someone working with Paul. This same Luke is usually identified as the author of the gospel of Luke and Acts.
    109. 109. The 4 Gospels - TO WHOM? - John: very mixed: mostly Jews, some Gentiles, Samaritans, etc. - John, the son of Zebedee, was called along with this brother James ("the Great") to be one of Jesus' twelve apostles who would accompany him on his ministry. John appears in the lists of apostles in the synoptic gospels as well as Acts. John and his brother James were given the nickname "Boanerges" (sons of thunder) by Jesus; some believe this was a reference to their tempers. He appears to have first been a disciple of John the Baptist before following Jesus.

    111. 111. The 4 Gospels John's Gospel by Young Oon Kim John was also written for a specific purpose. Gospel style and content allowed us to conclude that the author was certainly not the apostle John, but a Greek, who probably wrote the gospel about 100 to 110 years after Christ.

The first followers of Christianity used in the representation of the message of the Jewish terminology.
    113. 113. The 4 Gospels John's Gospel by Young Oon Kim One must be familiar with the Jewish apocalyptic and the messianic mindset in order to understand its statements.

    129. 129. Dr. Andrew Wilson : If Jesus was in fact married, and if his wife was also Jesus’ most devoted disciple, as The Gospel of Jesus’ Wife indicates, then Christians both on earth and in the spirit world need to reassess their views of True Mother (Hak Ja Han Moon). For truly she has been True Father’s (Sun Myung Moon) most devoted disciple and is worthy in every way. Wolli Wonbon 1952
    130. 130. According to True Father’s first Principle text, Wolli Wonbon (written in the early 1950s), Jesus was indeed married to Mary Magdalene. It was a conditional marriage, however, because Mary Magdalene also had been sleeping with another man in the Archangel position (Judas Iscariot), who was supposed to give her to Jesus. Mention that Jesus would have to restore Eve in this way is hinted at in Exposition of the Divine Principle in the discussion of Abraham and Sarah in Egypt:
    131. 131. SunMyungMoon: At the time of Adam, three persons fell. After the Fall, the archangel and Eve united and expelled the owner. However, at the Second Coming, Eve is to separate from the archangel, unite with her sons and daughters, and love True Parents absolutely, more than anybody else. These are not my words; they are the Principle viewpoint. You have to know this clearly.
    132. 132. With whom should women and their children unite? They must unite with the true Messiah. Therefore, in the Last Days, there are three figures: Eve, the archangel and Adam. Since Eve and the archangel united in the Garden of Eden and expelled her legal husband, at the time of restoration, Eve becomes united with the Lord of the Second Advent and has to expel the archangel by restoration through indemnity. By denying her present husband and the external, satanic environment, she has to contribute to the history of True Parents by herself. / /SMM 970102
    133. 133. Dr. Andrew Wilson contin.: Jesus tried to set up Judas’ wife as the woman in the position of Eve who would fulfil the original purpose of the Will. Mary Magdalene was this woman. Although she was Judas Iscariot’s lover, she absolutely obeyed Jesus’ will. Thus, as Satan had taken Eve from Adam, Jesus would try to take Judas’ wife for himself and thereby fulfil the Will according to the Principle.
    134. 134. When True Mother and True Father were Blessed, the situations of Jesus’ day had to be indemnified. Certainly there are huge differences between Mary Magdalene and True Mother — not least that True Mother was a pure and virginal young woman when she and Father were wed. Nevertheless, like Jesus’ would-be wife, True Mother faced and overcame incredible opposition from other church members, thereby indemnifying the disciples’ rejection of Mary Magdalene. She received all the accusation aimed at the original Eve and then at Mary, digested it, and restored the wife’s position.
    135. 135. Now, on the foundation of her victory, the story of Jesus’ wife can be revealed to humankind. Don Brown’s The Da Vinci Code enjoyed extraordinary popularity because the time has come to rehabilitate Mary Magdalene from obscurity. She was the predecessor of True Mother, and True Mother stands on the foundation of her devotion to Jesus. Contributed by Dr. Andrew Wilson, UTS

    140. 140. St. Stephen accused those Jews who killed Christ of "betraying and murdering" him (Acts 7:52). Paul criticized "the rulers of this age" for having "crucified the Lord of glory" because of their ignorance of a "hidden wisdom of God" (1 Cor. 2:7-8). Even Jesus, when still alive, brokenheartedly blamed the people of Jerusalem for not accepting him, by saying: "O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, killing the prophets and stoning those who are sent to you! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you would not" (Matt. 23:37).

    150. 150. 1948 In 1948, Israel became independent; therefore, some might think it reasonable for the Lord to come back to Israel. Korea also became independent in 1948. However, Korea was liberated from Japanese colonization, in contrast to modern Israel's situation. Conceivably both countries may have become independent at the same time because the physical Israel inherited something from the spiritual Israel, Korea.
    151. 151. 1948 The fact that the Jewish people, who had been wandering for 2000 years, found their nation, shows that all their sins had been forgiven. Therefore, they could return to their original position. The prophecy that Israel would be restored when Jesus returned was fulfilled. Because Jesus' death was indemnified, mankind was able to receive forgiveness and the Lord of the Second Advent could come. /The Turning Point of History S.M.Moon

    159. 159. At the time of Jesus' crucifixion there was a thief on the right and a thief on the left, and in front of Jesus was Barabbas. The term right-wing or left-wing was not derived today. What was planted in Jesus' time now has been harvested as right and left wings. (Democracy - Communism)
    160. 160. The left-side thief said to Jesus, "If you are the Son of God save us". He denied Jesus. The right-side thief said to the left-side thief, "Of course, we should die because of our sin; but this person should not die because he has no sin". He was on the side of Jesus, overcame difficulties and defended him. Therefore, the thief on the right went to Paradise with Jesus. We know this from the Bible.

    164. 164. It was the night before Easter in the year I turned sixteen. I was praying all night and begging God in tears for answers. Why had He created a world so filled with sorrow and despair? My encounter with Jesus changed my life completely. His sorrowful expression was etched into my heart as if it had been branded there, and I could not think of anything else. From that day on, I immersed myself completely in the Word of God. /Biography SMM

    167. 167. Dr Young Oon Kim: We can find an important tradition about the risen Jesus in Paul's letters which is twenty years closer to Jesus' earthly ministry (I Cor. 15:3). Paul relates two very significant facts: a list of resurrection appearances which he claims to have received from the original apostolic community and each appearance was like his own mystical experience on the Damascus road.
    168. 168. That means the first resurrection appearances were of the spiritual Jesus. More importantly, Paul nowhere refers to the empty tomb. Doesn't this suggest that in his time-twenty years before Mark-Christians did not believe that Jesus' tomb was found empty? Guignebert and others therefore conclude that the tomb stories were later legends added by Christian apologists in order to demonstrate the reality of Jesus' resurrection.

    176. 176. The next time I came, they led me to the study room and gave me a book written by Dr. Young Oon Kim, introducing the Divine Principle revelation. When I read the passage about the similarity of the time of Jesus’ birth and the Second Coming, I started to joke about this “nonsense.” In the next moment, I was stunned. I saw Jesus pass through the room, saying, “I am in this place!” Then he disappeared as he had entered. A wave of peace settled around me. 1
    177. 177. In the following days, I was so concerned not to make a mistake. When I knelt down to pray to ask if this was really the truth, it was ringing from all sides, “Yes! Yes!” and God chastised me gently, “Why do you ask me again? This was my answer.” From that time on, I started to study the Divine Principle and Reverend Moon with a calm mind and the assurance that God and Jesus had led me there. /Testimony of Barbara Grabner 2008 1
    178. 178. January 1, 1976. As a young church member, I was always curious as to whether Father Moon could heal people. Then in 1982, I got the answer through a direct experience. I had injured my right hip during a martial arts training accident one Saturday afternoon and had to be carried out. I did not want to go to the hospital, because I did not want to miss our early 5:00 A M service, even though I was in excruciating pain. “I will see a doctor after service,” I thought. 2
    179. 179. But during the night Father Moon came to me, looking very serious, and touched my right hip. He pointed his finger at me with that look in his eyes, as if to say, “You doubting Thomas,” and then he left. I was awakened at 4:30 AM, and my thoughts went to my injured hip. Suddenly, a voice said, “Get up,” which I apprehensively did. To my amazement there was not an inkling of pain. Everyone was shocked when I walked into the room. After service I gave my testimony. / Richard J. Francis 2
    180. 180. At the end of twenty-one days, I watched a video of True Father (Reverend Moon) for the first time. As he appeared on the screen, I started to hear angels’ voices singing a song I had sung every Easter with my church choir back in Minnesota: “The King is coming, the King is coming, I can hear the trumpets sounding, and soon his face I’ll see.” 3
    181. 181. With uncontrollable tears streaming down my face, I again felt embraced by Jesus and the Holy Spirit and received the revelation that Sun Myung Moon was God’s son (Messiah). I realized that everything in my life had prepared me for this. /GINGER NICHOLLS 1980s 3
    182. 182. 4 1974: I found myself walking in a dark corridor, at the end of which I saw a light. Getting closer, I saw in that bright light the face of Jesus. Then Jesus’ face changed into Sun Myung Moon’s face. I had the strong feeling that it was the same heart; only the external appearance changed. I felt profoundly happy!
    183. 183. 4 My challenge to all true Christians is to pray and ask Jesus to appear in their dreams. Ask Jesus about the identity of Reverend Moon. Remember Matthew 7:7. If you sincerely ask, definitely the reply will come, even faster than you expect. Since the time I first met the Unification Church, which is now known as the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification, I have had many dream encounters and many other spiritual experiences. These, along with the clarity of Divine Principle, became the foundation of my belief, faith, and trust in God. /Elisabeth Ciacciarelli Schneider Italy
    184. 184. In the Footsteps of the Apostles They were unlikely leaders. As the Bible tells it, most knew more about mending nets than winning converts when Jesus said he would make them "fishers of men." Yet 2,000 years later, all over the world, the Apostles are still drawing people in.

    190. 190. Rev. Lusardi (if I recall the spelling correctly) was a spiritual medium living in the SF Bay area. He was young enough at the time to still be living today. He was the one who received the message from the Apostle Paul. The message(s) were circulated and read in the US movement (Dr. Kim's branch) in the late 60s and early 70s. I remember feeling at the time that they had the ring of truth to them. /Dan Fefferman St Paul 1962
    191. 191. The Jews fell away because they thought that the Old Testament was sufficient for them. Their rejection of Jesus is proof enough they were blinded to the fact that He was the fullfilment of the scriptures. I bear witness to the fact that the Old Testament and  the New Testament combined are not sufficient to  live by in the New Cosmic Age we have ascended into. St Paul 1962
    192. 192. To be saved, every man, woman and child must  commence their mission before they leave this  earth plane. And before they can do this they must find the reason for the original sin and what original sin is. Perfection and resurrection can only be achieved  through work and that work must be done in the body,  the spirit of Truth demands it. St Paul 1962
    193. 193. New Message 9th of September 2001: Now after learning the Principle, I became even more confident that the Apostle Paul's traditional view of God was very mistaken. We necessarily should have attended God, the resurrected Jesus and the Messiah. Whenever people frustrated God's Will, they prolonged the history of the Dispensation for Restoration, requiring a new central figure. St Paul 2001
    194. 194. True Parents! The partial ideas Paul planted into Christianity have acted as obstacles to the providence of the Messiah, haven't they?

    195. 195. A defense of the Christian religion by Blaise Pascal, the renowned 17th century philosopher and mathematician. Given the possibility that God actually does exist and assuming the infinite gain or loss associated with belief in God or with unbelief, a rational person should live as though God exists and seek to believe in God. If God does not actually exist, such a person will have only a finite loss (some pleasures, luxury, etc.) Blaise Pascal
    196. 196. "God's existence is a philosophical problem for me. I'm not even sure he exists," an early disciple said. "You're asking the wrong question," Moon said. "You should not be thinking does God exist or not. It's too theoretical. Sun Myung Moon
    197. 197. Ask instead, why does God exist? What does he exist for? If there's an answer to that question, the question about God's existence answers itself " "What I mean is, if you figure out why God exists, everything falls into place, including the fact of God's existence. The question is, does the relationship exist, the relationship between God and man.“ Sun Myung Moon

    287. 287. So are we Unificationists Christian?
    288. 288. Both Yes and No! (according to my personal view)
    289. 289. The point I try to make is that it is misleading to just say we are Christians They will think traditional traditional Christians. Yes we in UC do believe in Jesus as the Messiah and in his salvation through His blood. But that was secondary not primary mission!
    290. 290. Yes we believe in the Bible both Old and New Testament, BUT NOT THE Classical interpretation about Jesus. To say we ARE Christian Would lead people to the wrong conclusion that we believe exactly like Christian faith for 2000 year have done - That the Fall was just disobediense - That Jesus came merely to die on the Cross - That this was Gods will and only plan - Belief in Jesus and that only Jesus himself will fulfill the Return of Christ All wrong in DP view.
    291. 291. In order not to mislead we should (in my understanding) say: - we beleive in New Revelation - based on Old and New Test, like the words of Jesus was continuing revelation and a New Covenant - the Fall was spiritual and physical sexual to its nature - the Second Coming is in the flesh, and not only Jesus, who really died physically 2000 yrs ago and lost his physical body. ...so on, see Divine Principle
    292. 292. From mailings: Of course you know all this Gudrun, but that was my point...Kirsti is CORRECT saying we are not Christian or far away from TRADITIONAL Christian teaching I agree :-) For me it was interesting to see how my own faith bounsed at Kirstis statements. The strongest objection I have, is like I wrote IF...physical intercourse was needed between sinless Messiah...for whatever reason...that would be official, explained in detailed theological terms ...so on. Its not part of DP at all. The opposite, sexual purity is the very core of DP teaching!
    293. 293. Quotes from Ten Theologians Respond to the Unification Church – Edited by Herbert Richardson 1981 “The Christ's mission was to restore the broken relationship between man and woman and humans and God by taking a Bride and raising children in a God-centered family. “ From this aspect, the mission of Jesus was incomplete.
    294. 294. Certain Christian critics of Unification theology object that, since Divine Principle teaches that Jesus failed in his mission, Unification "cannot be regarded as Christian,“ *1 Against this objection, two things m a y be said. First, Divine Principle does not precisely say that Jesus failed but, rather, that the will of G o d for the full spiritual and physical restoration of humanity was failed by the disbelief of the people in Jesus (DP, p. 196).
    295. 295. Second, Divine Principle claims that Jesus and the Holy Spirit did fulfill their mission of "spiritual True Parents" (DP p. 217). It remains the role of the Lord of the Second Advent and his Bride to bring the physical restoration in line with the spiritual restoration already fulfilled by Jesus and the Holy Spirit, Source: http://www.tparents.org/UTS/10T/0-Toc.htm
    296. 296. It is absolutely wrong for Unification Church members to think that we have nothing to do with Christianity. Why is that so? The Old Testament Age and New Testament Age existed in order to restore True Parents. The Completed Testament Age also exists for the restoration of True Parents. The content of those three ages is the same: restoration of True Parents. You should have such a concept.
    297. 297. The Messiah is, in fact, True Parents; therefore, the content and the purpose of Judaism, Christianity and the Unification Church are the same. Then what is different? Judaism wanted to receive the Messiah on a national level, and then to expand it to the whole world. Christianity was formed after Jesus' death in order to receive the Messiah on the worldwide foundation. What about the Completed Testament Age? It is the cosmic level, the time of the desire to receive the True Parents even in the spirit world. The dimension is different. You must clearly differentiate them from one another. (SMM 1984.4.29. East Garden)
    298. 298. What did Jesus do on earth? He paved the way for defeating Satan, the representative of all evil spirits. But he paved the way only fifty percent; that is why he must come again to pave the way a hundred percent. (SMM 1985.1.1) Jesus + Bride 50% + 50% = 100% True Parents

    301. 301. Mark 5:1-20 King James Version (KJV) 5 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. 2 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, 3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: 4 Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. 5 And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself
    302. 302. 6 But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, 7 And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. 8 For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. 9 And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many.
    303. 303. 10 And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country. 11 Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. 12 And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. 13 And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.
    304. 304. “When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it passes throughwaterless places seeking rest, and finding none it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when it comes, it finds the house swept and put in order. Then it goes and brings seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and dwell there. And the last state of that person is worse than the first.” /Luke 11:24
    305. 305. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. /Eph. 6:11
    306. 306. 3rd Adam
    307. 307. 3rd Adam The spirit world could not function until the appearance of Unification Church. Why? Because there was no handle to grab; no rapport was established. There was no love between the races. There was no one who could prepare the base so that God could really bring down His hosts of angels. But now the Unification Church represents that base, so God can bring down any number of angels or spirit men He wishes.
    308. 308. 3rd Adam So far, there have been many, many evil spiritual phenomena. There are many evil, lost spirits haunting people. Spirits can also actually cause diseases and accidents. What is the difference between evil spirits and good spirits? When an evil spirit approaches, you somehow feel fearful and uncertain and very unstable. A satanic spirit is like the winter wind, making you shiver.
    309. 309. 3rd Adam But when some good spirit is trying to embrace you, you feel so good without reason! You'll be walking on Cloud 9! A heavenly spirit is like spring. It melts you, relaxes you, and gives you the warmth of love and comfort. You should feel that in the Unification Church.
    310. 310. 3rd AdamI have been conducting the program of the spirit world for everything. I do not talk about how heaven is or how heavenly father is, and so forth. I do not talk about them carelessly. I only talk about them after I have digested them with the truth and can explain them in some systematic manner. Do you think that I simply listen to the words of some women or grandmothers, or some spiritual medium? No way. They are ignorant. They know how to testify to the present, but they do not know how things operate. /SMM (68-276)

    313. 313. Mailings with Christian minister 2012 Q(uote) 1965: You are in the process now. But before Jesus became manifest there were people who had been prepared - John the Baptist came prepared. But the world has grown and multiplied - the means of communication have become simpler and easier. (Internet, Facebook) It takes not one man in a little country to be a John the Baptist, but many men in many countries to herald the coming. http://www.euro-tongil.org/swedish/english/eford.htm
    314. 314. Mailings with Christian minister 2012 DP73: Malachi prophesied that Elijah, who had ascended into heaven, would come before the advent of the Messiah (Mal. 4:5). Consequently, the Jewish people of Jesus' day believed that the very person of Elijah who had once ascended into heaven, would come again, and they were looking forward to the day of his coming down from heaven. But, most unexpectedly, Jesus said that John the Baptist, the son of Zechariah (Luke 1:13), was Elijah (Matt. 11:14). Here, we came to know, according to the testimony of Jesus himself, that the second advent of Elijah was realized by the birth of John the Baptist, not by his coming down from heaven, as the Jewish people of that time had all expected.
    315. 315. Mailings with Christian minister 2012 There are scholars who insist that Daniel 7:13 is the prophecy of what was going to happen at the Second Coming of the Lord. However, in the Old Testament Age, God was working His providence to fulfill the whole purpose of the providence of restoration with the coming of the Messiah, as we may clearly see from the words, "For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John." (Matt. 11:13), and also "For Christ is the end of the law, that every one who has faith may be justified." (Rom 10:4). Therefore, it was the situation that no one could ever imagine the second coming of the Messiah, who had once come, until Jesus himself later said that the Lord would come again.
    316. 316. Mailings with Christian minister 2012 In this way,even at the time of Jesus' coming, there were many believers who had believed that the Lord would come on the clouds, from Biblical grounds. However, Jesus was actually born in the flesh on earth, and we are compelled by this knowledge to study the Bible from the viewpoint that the Lord may come again in a like manner. www.unification.net/dp73/dp73-2-6.html

The symbolic prophecies found in all the world Scriptures anent this imminent event will prove their veracity; their symbolism will nevertheless elicit re-interpretation; circumstances and happenings will not necessarily be exactly as the Scriptures would appear to indicate.
    320. 320. Mailings with Christian minister 2012 A Bailey : For instance, He will come indeed in the "clouds of the air“ (Matt. XXVI.64), as the Christian Scriptures say, but of what great interest is that when millions come and go in the clouds, each hour of the day and of the night? I mention this as one of the outstanding prophecies and one of the most familiar; it is, however, one which means little in our modern civilisation. The fact of importance is that He will come.
    321. 321. 1935, is the year Jesus Christ asked SMM to take on his (Jesus) unfinished mission. p.27 I had a rare and precious experience in which God answered my prayers. That day will always remain as the most cherished memory of my life—a day I can never forget. It was the night before Easter in the year I turned sixteen (15 wesatern counting). I was on Mount Myodu praying all night and begging God in tears for answers. Why had He created a world so filled with sorrow and despair? Why was the all-knowing and all-powerful God leaving the world in such pain? What should I do for my tragic homeland? I wept in tears as I asked these questions repeatedly.
