    1. 1. Divine Principle & Culture of Heart Shimjeung Introduction
    2. 2. Introduction The Way of Love 1 Cor. 13 13 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 And if I have a prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, b so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 c If I give away all I have, and dif I deliver up my body to be burned,1 but have not love, I gain nothing.
    3. 3. Introduction • Christian Heart = Love • • • • Love for God, Love for Jesus Love for they neighbor Love for the Truth
    4. 4. • Divine Principle: Everyone, without exception, is struggling to gain happiness. Comment: Happiness comes from Heart
    5. 5. The apostle Paul, who was faced with such wretchedness of heart, said in lamentation, "For I delight in the law of God, in my inmost self, but I see in my members another law at war with the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin which dwells in my members. Wretched man that I am!" (Rom 7:22-24). There is a great contradiction in man. Within the same individual, the power of the original mind, which desires goodness, is at violent war against the power of the wicked mind, which desires evil.
    6. 6. • How can man ever know God's heart? • The new truth should enable us to know God as a reality (His Heart). • It should also be able to reveal His heart and feeling of joy at the time of creation, • and His broken heart and feeling of grief as He struggles to save fallen man who rebels against Him.
    7. 7. • When man realizes that if he makes his neighbor a victim for his own benefit, he suffers more from the pangs of conscience than he profits from unrighteous gain, he will find it impossible to harm his neighbor. Therefore, when real brotherly love arises from the bottom of man's heart, he cannot do anything to cause his neighbor to suffer.
    8. 8. • When the truth is known, all will come to understand that the historical events which man has seen and experienced are the reflections of God's heart, struggling to save fallen man.
    9. 9. • The trunk, stem, or branches of a plant correspond to the human heart in supplying nutriments to the whole body. Comment: We need to be engrafted into the new Root = Christ
    10. 10. • Man enters the direct dominion of God when husband and wife fulfill the purpose of goodness through the perfect give and take action of love and beauty between them according to the will of the subject, in perfect oneness with God's heart, having established the four position foundation by becoming one united body. • Therefore, direct dominion is the realm of perfection. (One Heart with God)
    11. 11. • When perfected man as subject, and the physical world, as his object, become one united body centered on God and establish the four position foundation and when man thus fulfils the purpose of goodness through the perfect give and take action of love and beauty with the physical world according to his will, in perfect oneness with God's heart, man attains direct dominion over all things.
    12. 12. • The serpent's tongue is split in two. • This symbolizes a man or being which utters two different things with one tongue, a being which lives a double life with one heart. • The serpent is also the symbol of one who induces others to sacrifice themselves for his own benefit (No Heart).
    13. 13. • Eve, at the time of her temptation, was still immature both in wisdom and in heart, • Thus, when Eve was blinded in wisdom (knowledge) and confused in heart (feeling) by the temptation of the angel, she was forced to go beyond the line of fall even though she felt anxiety due to the freedom of her original mind • Man, due to the fall, became ignorant of God and of His heart. Therefore, human will, due to ignorance, could not take a direction with which God could be pleased.
    14. 14. • a man of perfection becomes one body with God in heartand-zeal, so that man and God become able to communicate with each other fully and freely.
    15. 15. • Internal dominion means the dominion of heart-and-zeal. • To have “zeal” or to be “zealous” means to be eager or earnestly enthusiastic about or toward a particular effort. Paul used the word “zeal’ when speaking of Israel in Romans 10:2: “For I bear them record that they have a “zeal” of God, but not according to knowledge.” In Titus 2:14, we are told that the reason Christ gave Himself for us was “that He might redeem us from all iniquity and purify unto Himself a peculiar (different) people, “zealous” of good works.
    16. 16. • When a man has perfected his individuality he becomes one in heart-and-zeal with God; thus he is able to experience God's own heart-and-zeal. • Jesus also said to his disciples, "I have yet many things to say to you but you cannot bear them now." (John 16:12). This disclosed how sorrowful he was, because he could not tell even his own disciples what he had deep in his heart.
    17. 17. • The disciples of Jesus, were not overly attached to the Old Testament. • Rather, they followed what they felt spiritually in their hearts. • The reason men of prayer and conscience feel a sense of extreme spiritual anxiety and urgency in the Last Days is that, while they vaguely feel spiritual things and are willing to follow the providence of the new age in their hearts, they have not met the new truth that can lead their external selves in the right direction.
    18. 18. • Therefore, if these men would only listen to the new truth leading them to the providence of the new age, they would be awakened in heart and intellect by spirit and truth simultaneously.
    19. 19. One with Gods Heart Reflecting Christs Heart Seeking Heart
    20. 20. • Man leaves the Satanic dominion through resurrection, and by becoming one with God's heart he can enjoy deity. • When fallen men thus come into the dominion of God through resurrection, spiritual changes necessarily occur.
    21. 21. • If the hearts of parents in fallen families are saddened by the unhappiness (broken heart) of even one of their children, how much more would it be so with God, as the Heavenly Parent •
    22. 22. • When the Last Days come, even evil spirits will descend to earthly men of the same level, and by cooperating with them will take part (experience Heart) in the fulfillment of God's will. Finally, after a due period of time, the unified purpose of creation will be attained.
    23. 23. • Fallen man may become a perfect incarnation (substance) only after removing his original sin through the Messiah, thus restoring the position before the fall of the first human ancestors, and then becoming one body with the Messiah, centering on God's heart; and finally passing through the growth period, which the first human couple left unaccomplished due to their fall.

    25. 25. Still trying ...
    26. 26. • "The Kingdom of God is in the midst of you." (Luke 17:21). • At the time of Jesus, those who believed him to be the Messiah and who followed and served him had already realized the Kingdom of God in their hearts. • In the same manner, at the Second Advent, the Lord will be born on earth.
    27. 27. • Therefore, centering on those saints who will recognize and serve him first, the Kingdom of heaven will first be realized in their hearts, and when such individuals increase in number, forming societies and nations, the Kingdom of God will gradually appear as a world with signs to be observed.

    32. 32. “Psychological” Optical Illusion What is the story behind the picture below? The influence of culture and environment can have an effect on our visual perception – believe it or not. This theory was first explored by Robert Laws, a Scottishmissionary working in Africa during the late 1800′s. Take a look at the picture below – what you see will largely depend on where you live in the world.
    33. 33. So What Did You See – What is above the woman’s head? When scientists showed a similar sketch to people from East Africa, nearly all the participants in the experiment said she was balancing a box or metal can on her head. In a culture containing few angular visual cues, the family is seen sitting under a tree. Westerners, on the other hand, are accustomed to the corners and boxlike shapes of architecture. They are more likely to place the family indoors and to interpret the rectangle above the woman’s head as a window through which shrubbery can be seen.
