  • On September 14, 1999, Rev. Moon opened the era in which blessed families could pray in their own names [i.e. conclude their prayers by offering it in their names]. At the time of the commemoration of the 14th True Children’s Day on October 27, 2000, he established a new format for the prayer ending. On New Year’s Day, 2001, he instructed that our communication with God should be in the form of a report rather than a prayer. Following are excerpts from four speeches on this subject.

    1. 1. Family Happyness! This is the Columbus, Ohio 2010 the family that had the sixtuplets, this picture is priceless! v 3.2
    2. 2. Divine Principle by Sun Myung Moon: God's three great blessings to man, the purpose of His creation, were to be realized when Adam and Eve, after having perfected their respective individualities, would become husband and wife, then multiply their children to form a family, and, further, they would come to rule the whole of creation. (Gen. 1:28.) However, due to the fall, the three great blessings were not realized.
    3. 3. In order to restore this, we must follow the course in reverse and 1.1 establish the foundation of faith by offering the symbolic sacrifices through which both the condition of indemnity to restore the created things and 1.2 the symbolic condition of indemnity to restore man can be set up at the same time.
    4. 4. 2. In laying the foundation of substance, there are certain conditions of indemnity necessary for the fallen man to set up; that is, "the condition of indemnity to remove the fallen nature". Therefore, in order for a fallen man to establish the foundation of substance for the restoration of his original nature by the removal of his original sin through the Messiah, he must first set up the condition of indemnity to remove the fallen nature.
    5. 5. 3. Next, we must lay the foundation to receive the Messiah, after having set up the foundation of substance by offering the substantial sacrifices, which can be set up at the same time as the condition of indemnity to restore the children, and on this basis to restore the parents.
    6. 6. The biblical Isaac blessing Jacob
    7. 7. According to the Principle of Creation, after creating Adam, God created Eve with Adam as the model. Therefore, unless there is a perfected man who can be born centering on God's perfected love -- in other words, unless there is a true man -- according to the law of recreation, Eve cannot be found. Through the birth of Jesus, with a man as the Lord, a God-centered movement in search of Eve could appear for the first time on this earth.
    8. 8. The Lord will come as the man of character representing Adam before he fell in the Garden of Eden -- in other words, Adam before getting married. In the position of Adam in the Garden of Eden before the fall and marriage, the Lord should get married. Comment: Jesus came primarily to get Married not to be crucified to atone for our sins.
    9. 9. The Holy Grail, long searched for 2000 years, HAS FINALLY BEEN FOUND! The Holy Wine ceremony and Blessing by True Parents! Starting 1960 =
    10. 10. 360 000 000 Couples Febr. 1999 Seoul Korea * 1997 Jesus, Buddha, Confucius, Muhammad, and Socrates. Evil Man: Stalin, Hitler, and more.*
    11. 11. In 1992, the Blessing of 30,000 couples was held on the international level. In 1952, the global Blessing could have been given worldwide centering on the Parents, but the opportunity had been lost.
    12. 12. There were twelve peaks to surmount – passing through the formation, growth and completion stages - up to and including the Blessing of 360 million couples. I never retreated from that path after I completed the 40 million couples Blessing. As a result, everything was made level. That is why there are 400 million blessed couples. The Blessing of 360 million couples was one of equalization - the Blessing of equalization for all citizens of the world. /302-132, 1999.06.12

    18. 18. 2010 Blessing
    19. 19. History of the Blessing : The early members did not know there would be a couple Blessing. They knew about the sexual Fall of Man, and mans lost spiritual purity and wanted to live a pure single life the rest of their life.
    20. 20. Jesus came primarely to marry and have children, grandchildrens… Some protests… The O.T. does not talk about Jesus marrying! Comment: So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. Gen 1:27 You, therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect. Math 5:48
    21. 21. The Bible don’t contradicts itself: Put those two Holy statements together and you´ll see that Jesus as perfect Logos he was, was still only 50% of that full Logos. Perfect male and female = Jesus and his physical Bride - Holy 100% Logos True Parents of Heaven Earth and Humankind /end comment
    22. 22. Before the True Parents came into existence, even Father had to pray in the name of Jesus; he could not pray in the name of the True Parents. However, after conducting the Holy Blessing, he was finally able to pray in the True Parents’ name. (288-28, 1997.10.31) We can now pray in our own names 14 Sept 1999
    23. 23. 120 couples were blessed, (24 July 1963) representing Jesus 12 disciples, and 120 people who awaited the descent of the Holy Spirit after the ascension of Jesus and went out later to spread his Gospel. By the blessing of the 120, the universal blessing could start. Indemnity
    24. 24. Since Jesus was crucified, the dispensation from Jacob to Jesus was nullified. Indemnity had to be paid and restoration made from that point. By blessing this number of people, (120) I started the dispensation of restoration all over again. Indemnity
    25. 25. After Jacob's dispensation, the tribal mission started. So after the blessing of these couples, my tribal mission, the mission of Moses, started. Then the mission of Jesus, that is the national and universal missions, started. Indemnity
    26. 26. To do Jesus mission, I had to pay indemnity for what had been lost by Jacob, Moses and Jesus. Jesus' mission was carried out only spiritually. By blessing these couples, (120) restoration was completed both physically and spiritually. Therefore, starting from these blessings, heaven and earth, which have been separated, are united. Source: SMM 1965 Indemnity
    27. 27. Holy Blessing of Unification Church: 1st Gen. • Matching • Holy Wine Ceremony = Forgiveness of Original Sin • Holy Blessing, 4 Pledges “Blessing Wows” • Indemnity • Separation period • 3 Day Ceremony – Start of Family 2nd ,3rd…Gen. • Matching • Holy Blessing, 4 Pledges “Blessing Wows” • Start of Blessed Family • Children 3rd, 4th … Gen. born without original sin

    30. 30. Curiosa comment about Matching: One of the Worlds best football players. His parents: From 2 religions and countries in war. Still ”Perfect natural match” Muslim Bosniak father, Šefik who emigrated to Sweden in 1977 and a Croatian Catholic mother, Jurka, who had also emigrated to Sweden, where they first met. Fruit: Zlatan Great Football player!
    31. 31. Read His Life story: Google for I am Zlatan
    32. 32. Tromsö NorgeNatures Beauty Harmony of Heavens
    33. 33. By repent, Jesus meant that we should understand that the fall of our ancestors and ourselves was and is sexual in nature. The Kingdom of Heaven means that vertical perfection is brought into the horizontal realm.
    34. 34. God had to agonize over the task of cleansing everything at the time of Jesus, by repentance, so that Jesus could perfect everything, bringing in God's Kingdom. The human failure had to be reversed, and then on top of that the original blessings had to be given.
    35. 35. Then God replaces the individual with the family. (=Holy Blessing) That is the line of true love [the top of the growth stage]. God and Satan are fighting over that line. The upper one is God's domain. * /SMM April 12, 1998
    36. 36. Blessing level
    37. 37. When good and evil cross, that is where the Lord of the Second Advent comes. Then he does the eight stages all over again. Then at each stage, the entirety can be indemnified.
    38. 38. Once the Blessing of 360,000 couples gives way to the Blessing of 3.6 million, 36 million, 360 million and finally 3.6 billion couples, human society will finally see the eradication of AIDS and the realization of a world of pure true love, where God and humankind are united into one.
    39. 39. This is not a mere dream. God’s great work of establishing the Kingdom of Heaven on earth, the realization of this providence, is an inevitable truth. That is because it is not the work of one human being, but the work of God. (271-99, 1995.8.23)
    40. 40. In order to hold a marriage celebration, a bride must come to her groom. For Christianity, that represents the Last Days. You cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven without going beyond Christianity. /1975.1.26
    41. 41. What did Jesus want so much to accomplish that he devoted himself to the task for two thousand years?
    42. 42. What did Jesus want so much to accomplish that he devoted himself to the task for two thousand years? It was all about to hold a marriage ceremony.
    43. 43. What did Jesus want so much to accomplish that he devoted himself to the task for two thousand years? It was all about to hold a marriage ceremony. What marriage ceremony would that have been? The Blessing. For two thousand years, Jesus had longed and yearned for the marriage ceremony of the Blessing.
    44. 44. Isn’t it logical to say that if Jesus had a family, then his clan, his people, and his nation would all have stemmed from it?
    45. 45. Isn’t it logical to say that if Jesus had a family, then his clan, his people, and his nation would all have stemmed from it? Jesus endured hard-ships for thirty-three years so he could have a family.
    46. 46. What did Jesus hope to achieve as he brought four thousand years of history to a conclusion? He perished because he did not find or have a family.
    47. 47. What did Jesus hope to achieve as he brought four thousand years of history to a conclusion? He perished because he did not find or have a family. If he had a family, his tribe was naturally able to offer indemnity horizontally throughout history, even though it took time.
    48. 48. Jesus was unsuccessful in forming a family after thirty-three years of toil. Do you truly know the value of the Blessing?
    49. 49. Jesus was unsuccessful in forming a family after thirty-three years of toil. Do you truly know the value of the Blessing? The Blessing is the solution that has been sought for six thousand years to clear away all resentments. /1972.9.25
    50. 50. 1982
    51. 51. For the Blessing: 1. God is needed 2. Messiah – Pure Physical Adam is needed 3. Mankind - receiving is needed Without 1+2+3 = 100% No Blessing possible of Mankind!
    52. 52. • It is truly significant to receive the Blessing. Those who receive the Blessing should be able to think of themselves as God’s representatives and conduct themselves as such. • They should think, “If I do not move, then heaven and earth do not move.” • God can establish a living ideology for the sake of humankind only when this position is reached. /1963.10.1
    53. 53. The Blessing opens the gates of the Kingdom of Heaven. The Kingdom of Heaven is a place where only families with children enter. /1963.5.25
    54. 54. • God’s Blessing is absolutely public in nature. = Live for Others! • It is not just for an individual, family, nation, or even the world. • God’s Blessing is for the whole universe. (Cosmos) /1965. 2.13
    55. 55. The most precious thing is man and woman joining together. This is the core originating point representing the universe’s public commitment.
    56. 56. The literal meaning of the word “blessing” is “praying for blessings.” If you break down the word chukbok (Blessing), chuk means to pray or wish for something. When you are praying for blessings, what is it that is most precious? It is none other than the blessing of love. The Unification Church uses the word “blessing” with this meaning.
    57. 57. Cosmic Beauty
    58. 58. When we speak of the Blessing, what we actually mean is we have been joined in holy matrimony by True Parents in the presence of God. / 1976.2.8
    59. 59. Good ancestors, the territory and the nation stem from you, the Blessed Families. That is why blessed members should think about heaven and earth during every waking moment. You have received the Blessing so that you can share blessings with others. /1963.10.17 Live for Others!
    60. 60. The Blessing is the most precious thing in heaven and earth. It is also the most fearsome. If a blessed member is attracted to others besides his or her spouse, it is a violation of the spouse.
    61. 61. The Blessing is a very fearsome thing. You cannot receive the Blessing based on your own desire. The value of a life is more precious than the whole universe. That is why when you make vows to take responsibility for a person, you should be ready and willing to do so forever.
    62. 62. You must understand clearly that the place of the Blessing is where these questions come up and are answered. You must understand clearly that the Blessing is to do with these issues. For this reason, if a person can receive the Blessing during his lifetime, he is truly a happy person. You must have firm resolve if you are to take part in receiving this great Blessing. /1970.3.22
    63. 63. You must know the value of the Blessing before you receive it. You should understand that through the Blessing you become one of the citizens of the Third Israel. Now that you know the significance and value of the Blessing, do you think it is possible for a person to reach individual perfection without receiving the Blessing?
    64. 64. Are unmarried people ever treated as adults? Even in the human world, when men who have been Bachelors or women who have been virgins die before they marry, they will be bachelor ghosts and virgin ghosts. Because they could not marry, they naturally became ghosts; this is just how the heavenly laws operate. /1967.12.31
    65. 65. Original conditions (until 777 Couples Blessing) to qualify to receive the Blessing: • 3 to 4 years of active work in any public ministry in our movement • at least three spiritual children • fasting for 7 days • give an offering of money.

    67. 67. Jesus as 2nd Adam and Messiah brought • The Word – The Gospel • Jesus as the Messiah • True Love • True Life • True Lineage Never Married Christian children born with orig.sin that needs continues forgivenes • Land Territory - 1st Israel “Jesus was crucified, so that he was unable to become a True Parent in his physical body. Although God's blood lineage had been established with Jesus, the position of True Parents in spirit and in flesh could not emerge. The work of Christianity is limited to the spiritual realm alone; it brought only spiritual salvation. Physical salvation, namely the salvation of the physical life, has not been realized.” /SMM 720401 Jesus came as the manifestation of God's concept of true Adam, but no one was raised up to manifest God's concept of Eve. For this reason the Holy Spirit comes in the role of spiritual Mother. The Bible describes the Holy Spirit as being like fire or water or like a dove, because it was without form, but the role of the Holy Spirit is that of mother spirit. II. Spiritual Physical
