  • Revised 2011 Bengt de Paulis Finland
  • The content of the Divine Principle book was completed about the end of the 1960. It represents the ‘bone of bones’ , but in fact 40 years have passed since that time and True Parents have taught many things which are not in the Divine Principle book. There have been so many victories leading to the Completed Testament Age, the Age of the Fourth Adam . Between 1993 and 1995 True Father spoke to Japanese Sisters who were 40 Day Workshop Trainees in Cheju Island. He told them they were the Eves of the Eve nation, Japan – the object to himself as Adam . Adam and Eve were brother and sister, twins conceived in the ‘mother’s womb’. ‘ As you and I are like brother and sister there will be no secrets – I will disclose all to you at the cost of my life, even the things I never shared in the past’.
  • These lectures will provide a different perspective – ‘understanding the God who is married to woman’; ‘ the God who loves His beloved children’; ‘the God who lost His bride, lost woman and could not consummate His marriage through man’. Then we will also understand Satan in a new light and understand that God had no way but to forgive and love the enemy. From the new perspective we can trace True Father’s footsteps, the history for his course and also understand the heart of the True Children . The lectures are presented in three parts: 1. The Principles of Creation, 2. The Fall of Man and 3. Restoration.
  • TF explained that is it a self-evident truth that it is very hard to understand that which is a part of my own being, which belongs to myself. For example: You may see your face in the mirror, but if you are asked to draw your own face from memory can you do it? Or – your own heart is beating constantly, but you are generally unaware of the sound of it beating. In the same way you cannot appreciate your own beauty – you need a mirror to reflect your beauty (you see your own goodness and love in the good result sit makes in others and the gratitude they return to you). This is true for us because we are created as reflections of God – we have the same attributes as God. God cannot perceive Himself – He needs a true object to be able to sense Himself and rejoice, to understand His own existence. This is the first motivation for creation! God needs us to be an accurate mirror to reflect 100% - even a mirror that is better than Himself = 100%+. But if the mirror is not flat it will make a distorted reflection. Human beings are created as the substantial object of God – He sees Himself through His children. God is the harmonized (never divided – always one) body of essential Seung Sang and essential Hyung Sang and of essential Masculinity/Positivity and essential Femininity/Negativity. He is the blueprint. His first conception of creation was of His son and daughter – His children – the final goal of creation. God cherished that ideal in Himself from the very beginning.
  • God considered Adam and Eve as twin brother and sister within the womb – as inseparable beings. The top half of the diagram represents God’s vision of the true child and true brother and sister and true spouse and true parent. The bottom half represents the substantial realization of God’s vision/ideal in human life - in Adam and Eve’s family and all families made after that model. In the same way when a baby is in the womb the parents imagine what that child will be like. Even before marriage they have a dream of what their child will be. Even a small girl may have her baby doll representing her future baby and revealing her maternal instinct awaiting the child to be. This nature to visualize our future children is from God. From as soon as God was ‘born’, God visualized His children. God’s and human’s vision should be the same. All human beings were to have resembled God. Therefore Adam and Eve should pass through a growth period during which they develop through stages – child to youth to adult. The most important aspect of development is that of heart and emotion – it develops when children are cherished by their parents. Through being suckled the child feels safe and loved. Wholesome heartistic emotional development is most vital – when children are denied this or abused and harmed it can result in wrong development, even criminality. Children are also stimulated in heart and emotion by the beauty of their environment perceived through their five senses – touching, seeing, smelling, tasting, hearing. Children come to love those objects as beautiful – ‘the kimchi my mother makes is the best!’. What is experienced in the first two or three years of life will impact our whole future life.
  • Alternative diagram.
  • In the Settlement Age we must teach children well at home and at school. In this sense the example of parents, elders and teachers is vital e.g. their level of faith and practice.
  • Each loves includes the love on which it is founded. Your love for your younger sister or brother is an extension of your child’s heart to love your parents.
  • Introduction - the significance of sex. Already from birth it is clear that boys and girls are different. Secular sex education is problematic because it is based on atheistic ideas including elements such as Freudian theory. TF guides us to educate about sexuality through the natural world – stamen and pistil, the animal world. Nature is God’s textbook. God directed that Adam and Eve do not eat, but secular sex education even provides encouragement to eat and just emphasizes avoiding sexually transmitted diseases and pregnancy. During adolescence there is a growing feeling to connect to the opposite sex – this should lead to marriage and conjugal love. First love between Adam and Eve is caused by a heartistic connection – look at each other with different eyes, smile, talk, smell, touch hand – become one in heart – always thinking of each other – then on that foundation and with God’s blessing become one in body such that all the cells and senses of Adam and Eve melt into one in an explosion of the intoxication of love! The woman moves to the man’s side to receive God’s seed – man is the subject – the giver.
  • The sun rises in the East (subject) – the West receives (object) Religion (vertical) comes from the East Science (horizontal) comes from the West.
  • Each love provides the foundation to develop the next and is included withing that love. Conjugal love is founded upon securing love for God, parents and brothers and sisters and includes all those loves. Conjugal love requires a certain maturity of heart – preparation for marriage should be on the foundation of ‘character education’. Sex education should not be just physiological.
  • God is so thrilled and happy to see His children in love – He comes down to live with them – God’s palace, where man and woman melt into oneness through love. Not only are sexual relations which are hidden from God a sin – even marriages without God’s recognition are contrary to the original ideal .
  • The final temple for God is made by man and woman united in love for God and each other.
  • God’s and human completion are interconnected. The perfection or completion of God is achieved through the unity of man and woman with God and each other. At the same time they can become true human beings by becoming one with the completed God. The holy man and holy woman become one when God is at the centre of their oneness in love. At the place where God and humans meet and become one the four loves are one – if they were separated it would be against the original order. God appears at the straightest and shortest location – i.e. God comes down vertically – at 90 degrees to the horizontal. TF always talks about convex and concave, but not just as the place that man and woman meet – more importantly it si the place that God comes down to meet human beings and to find His eternal home.
  • = 3 rd Blessing – Parental love towards the World
  • Each love becomes perfect in turn, but each love needs conjugal love to become perfect. Children’s love and B/S love are seeking their completion through conjugal love. Parental love would not be possible without conjugal love. Unless God’s love and man and woman’s love meet in conjugal love the other loves cannot become complete. Therefore all must marry in order to become complete. Our spouse is so precious – we must love and respect each other. This attitude is the basis for success in marriage.
  • God comes down and embraces the pure husband and wife and shares joy with them. God cannot separate from that husband and wife – He cannot help but follow them. This is the most precious place for human beings. It is not a sin for human beings to sacrifice the lives of other beings – it is not a sin to kill for food, but we should use their life and energy to live for God and others or it will become a sin. All things achieve their purpose by becoming a part of human beings – the best place for them to get into is the love organ where they can be part of that sacred meeting with God – the settlement point.
  • God has potential within Himself, but grows through experience. If a baby exists it means that God also has the characteristics of a baby within His being. God experiences being a baby through human experience – initially through Adam and Eve’s experience. The same is true of the child or adolescent – they are all within God’s nature, but substantially experienced by God through human experience. (Remember that God cannot experience His own nature except through his mirror – human beings) God would experience First Love through Adam and Eve’s experience. Their wedding would be God’s wedding also. God would experience the trembling of 60 billion cells in the intoxication of love through them. Being embraced by her husband is being embraced by God’s masculine nature expressed through Adam. Adam’s wife is God’s wife. Therefore we should welcome God into the sexual relationship in order that He can experience joy through our experience.
  • True Father explained that at the time of death spouses should confirm their love relationship by touching each others love organs while praying together. The conjugal relationship is the highest mission of the Blessed Couples because it fulfills the purpose of: Mutual perfection/completion Occupying God’s love The perfection of God Himself
  • The Settlement point of the 4 Rof H is in detail the 3 palaces. True love is unchanging under all circumstances or it cannot be true – eternally it will never change (i.e. – the marital relationship is eternal) True children’s love, true sibling’s love and true conjugal love can only be completed through the consummation of the conjugal relationship. True children’s and siblings love are on the path to conjugal and parental love – they are not an end in themselves – therefore they can only be consummated through conjugal love – this is their goal and purpose. The meaning is that the conjugal relationship will never change – it is eternal and therefore the foundation for true parental love. All four loves combined, centering on conjugal love, to realize true love. This is the starting point of true love – it is not just a feeling or sensation – it is the substantial experience of complete oneness with God.
  • When God created Adam and Eve He did not do so arbitrarily – He had to invest more than 100%. He wanted to create a limitlessly valuable creation – children of equal or better more value than Himself. Therefore God gives 100% and forgets what He has given and invests again and again. From God’s own practice of true love comes the fact that goodness is defined as living for others.
  • Labour pains - Once a child is born parental heart begins to develop, even from the labour pains experienced by the mother. God gave us the experience of labour pains so that we can share God’s experience of true love investment – the peak of pain, giving 100%+. Women give birth at the cost of their life and so produce new life. TF explained that husbands should share the labour pains with their wives – however it tends to take more time for a father to value the new life born compared with the mother. Second creator - Why did God create only one set of first ancestors, Adam and Eve? Genetic research indicates we come from one common female ancestor. God decided that creation would start from one single origin – from this one origin there can be unlimited multiplication but all will come from one origin. The children born of Adam and Eve will have the same value as A and E. In a sense A&amp;E are more than God because they can give birth to more than two children who have equal value to A&amp;E. Experience God’s love – you experience giving birth to the ‘flesh and blood of God’s love’. A mother does not demand to be paid back for the milk she gives and all the sacrifice involved in getting up at night. Through this selfless giving we taste the love out of which God created. By having more children you expand your heart by experiencing a greater variety of love – you become the embodiment of God’s love.
  • Adam and Eve would not have had ownership (3 rd Blessing) until they were married – we too should complete the second blessing in order to be qualified to have dominion. We should make the condition to restore ownership by returning all our ownership to God – fallen human beings are not qualified to have ownership. The Total Living Offering has such a meaning. By fulfilling the 4 great realms of heart we establish the ‘place of settlement’ where God can be joyful &gt;&gt;&gt; then God wants to give everything to such a family. God would want to give everything to A&amp;E – His own life – all He owned and created. God always invests more – then gives more – then invests more and so on &gt;&gt;&gt; Parentship includes eldersonship and kingship includes both parentship and eldersonship. By completing his own kingship Adam would have completed God’s kingship. TP want to restore God’s kingship, therefore they must be able to stand as King and Queen – e.g. TPs had a lower set of thrones at the Coronation of God’s Kingship.
  • A&amp;E perfected themselves through the invisible love of God. Their children will experience both the invisible love of God and the love of substantial parents. Kingship is completed when it is substantiated through the three generations – then it can continue for eternity.
  • If A&amp;E had not fallen the descendents of Adam’s direct lineage would have led this world. The point of settlement of kingship passes from generation to generation through the eldest son. The lineage expands in time and space and fills both the physical and spiritual worlds establishing the Kingdom of Heaven. God longs to realize that world = the Realm of the Royal Family. The Root of the Unification Movement is the True Family. By connecting to this lineage (engrafting) we can enter the Kingdom of Heaven – the starting point of this is the Registration Blessing.
  • In DP the original mind and conscience are explained as separate and the level of truth understood determines the level of conscience. However the conscience referred to in these presentations is the original mind – it is absolute. All people have a conscience – it will never leave you – it is always talking to you and working.
  • Example of how difficult it is to follow the conscience: You are walking in the desert with 2 friends – 2 days no water – you find a small amount of water hidden under a rock. Your selfish mind tells you to drink and not tell the others. Your conscience however does not allow you to do this – it tells you to drink just one third or even to give all to your friends. This is the true love standard – live for others at the risk of your own life.
  • Parental love wants children to be better than the parent – even 1,000 or 10,000 times better! d. When TF was indicted in the USA over tax issues top leaders and TM suggested that he stay in Korea as he could not have been extradited – but TF took the first flight back saying ‘I never committed a crime in my whole life’ (time of Danbury imprisonment).

  • Eve allowed her emotions to be influenced through Lucifer’s temptation. The top of the growth stage there is a time when the emotion can be stronger than reason. A&amp;E did not restore their fall and the impact continued from generation to generation until today. When we allow ourselves to be tempted our physical desire defeats our conscience and our conscience gets wounded.

  • Rev Sudo talked of his experience as a lecturer. He could not experience God’s heart with his own tears, but thought that maybe this was not necessary for him. Then a leader approached him and told him of a dream in which he saw Rev Sudo’s bones in a coffin. Then Rev Sudo realized that he was blocked by his arrogance – I am the best one – desire to be recognized by leaders and to be well regarded by his juniors – seeking his own glory. Then he checked his motivation, repented deeply and made a new start. It is as though my conscience is an iron plate cover by sticky tape so that the electricity cannot flow. Repentance removes the tape so that the electricity can flow again and the conscience operate.
  • After the spiritual fall Eve became the wife of Satan. When she went on to seduce Adam she did so as an agent of Satan, in unity with him. A new Adam was created – fallen Adam. God gave the commandment to enable A&amp;E to avoid the temptation of the Fall, but Adam disobeyed and was reborn as Satan’s son with a reciprocal relationship to Satan in terms of blood lineage. Adam with God’s blood lineage died and Adam with Satan’s blood lineage was born. That is why fallen man needs a restoration course to cut from Satan and be reborn through the Blessing. Christianity has been looking at Jesus life from the viewpoint of predestination – that he came to die – they are just scratching the surface of true understanding. TF ‘s teaching is so clear that we do not even need biblical justification – just from our own conscience we can feel it is true.
  • To understand who Satan is we must first understand who is God. God is the origin composed of the dual characteristics of positivity and negativity, but in relation to the creation he is the masculine subject to creation, His feminine object. Who is Adam? – the substantial external manifestation of the internal invisible God – the substantial living God. Who is Eve? – created to become the wife of God. For a masculine being to be happy he needs a female object. Adam needs Eve – he cannot be satisfied just by watching Eve . God wanted to substantially marry Eve through Adam. God wanted to embrace his bride and become one , melt, explode and tremble – through Adam. Next God wanted to have children through A&amp;E – He wanted to experience caring for His son and daughter through them – loving them and sharing joy – then to own the material world through them as a means of expressing love. God wanted to create His own family – realize the 3 Blessings – a perfected family. Therefore the True Family is the centre of the providence and we must connect to them through the blood lineage. Due to the Fall God could not experience this planned joy and happiness. God became a lonely batchelor – only resolved by TPs who consequently became a true filial son and daughter. In God’s presence Eve (the wife of God) was taken away by another masculine being Satan and became Satan’s wife. God experienced the pain of family breakdown. Satan is the adulterer against God, who pierced God’s heart – the archenemy of God. God’s pain was like that that of a man whose bride was stolen away. We would expect that God would wish to take revenge!

  • Jesus on the cross – bleeding and with torn flesh said: ‘ Forgive them for they know not what they do’. Also TPs love their enemy God must love Lucifer/Satan – the unforgivable enemy – there is no other way to solve the problem and to save even Satan. Therefore we have the same task to undertake – to love the enemy. If we fail to do so we will become failures.

Also TPs love their enemy God must love Lucifer/Satan – the unforgivable enemy – there is no other way to solve the problem and to save even Satan. Therefore we have the same task to undertake – to love the enemy. If we fail to do so we will become failures.
  • Examples of TF overcoming his human feelings out of his heart to liberate God – to solve God’s problem is the only way to solve the world’s problems. If TF put anything above this goal he would not be able to save God and therefore never save anybody. In Heungnam TF’s mother came and begged him to give up this way and come home. TF understood his mother’s heart but he knew God’s suffering heart and could only deny her request– this was the last time he saw his mother. Hyun Jin Nim understands this heart and wants to liberate TPs – we should completely unite with True Children in this heart and challenge ourselves to follow this path so that we can truly know this heart.

  • Lucifer felt jealousy and lessening of love. To compensate for this sense of loss he self-centeredly approached Eve and made her his wife – stole her from Adam and God. But it was not enough to take Eve – the AA has no seed – Satan cannot make his lineage. Through Eve seduce Adam and take dominion over the corporeal world through his son Adam and his lineage.
  • God had planned to live in Adam and to marry Eve and through them to give birth to His children. But all was claimed by Satan. Adam before and after the fall is a totally different being – became the substantial body of Satan. If the AA had supported God’s will he would have become a good AA. But was against God’s will and became the evil AA. As his lineage we became AAs too and have no right to have children or to own property. If Adam had not fallen the seed of Adam from his bone marrow would have been sown in Eve’s womb and the fruit, Cain. Would have become the first son of God – God’s descendants would have been created. But instead Satan’s seed sown and blood lineage created. Therefore there must be a way to change the blood lineage of all mankind for the problem to be solved. From this we understand the value and importance of the True Family – they are the substantiation of that true blood lineage.
  • Lost God - we define a human being as a child of God, but came to not comprehend God, hear His words or feel His touch. Lost the sense that God is always with me – should feel that always have free access to God. Lost the heartbeat of God when embraced by God. Deism – God is out of touch, gone – we have to struggle by ourselves Freidrich Nietszche – the death of God – Atheism, scepticism, materialism and humanism Alienation – dialectical materialism &gt;&gt; Marxism b. Loss of self – Philosophers ask – ‘Who is the human being?’ Darwinism – descendants of apes Loss of purpose – loss of sense of value Ignorance of the most fundamental truths – the purpose of life and value of a human being. Child of God = divine value – human life is so precious- as a result we cannot hurt others – if we lose this &gt;&gt; cruelty, abuse, murder etc All human beings have value regardless of differences of race, class, sex etc – but such a sense of value was lost. The President of the nation and a child with a disability have the same value – it would be good for the President to give up his life to save such a child from drowning – lost all this heart. If we hurt people we hurt God Loss of hope and purpose – drugs and suicide
  • Cut from God means cut from each other – can’t feel the other’s pain – indifferent – conscience not operating. Many people living among millions in big cities, but feel very lonely – isolated – no relationships. In New Mexico one old lady died – nobody from relatives wanted to take responsibility for the funeral. Police found large bank deposit and a will stating that relatives should NOT be given any money – ‘Give the money to the mice and cockroaches in my house because they visited me in my loneliness.’
  • Within God’s nature there exist invisible sexual organs from which A&amp;E were created. Angels rejoiced when A&amp;E and Jesus were born. We can show the baby – the trunk, but not the invisible root – the sexual organs.
  • Homosexuality – In the Bible an unforgivable sin – stoned to death In the West a matter of choice – protected by law The purpose of human life is to return joy to God by fulfilling the purpose of creation. An act that fulfills the purpose of creation is good An act against the purpose of creation is evil – sinful Homosexual relationships do not reflect God’s dual characteristics – cannot produce new life.

    12. 12. The Fall resulted in conflict between siblings because of a lack of parental love (God’s love) To overcome global disputes and wars we need parents First Heart = Children’s love towards parents Second Heart = Brothers’ and sisters’ love (these loves provide the foundation to enter the next realm of love – conjugal love) These two hearts correspond to the perfection of the individual, the First Blessing, and to the right of elder-sonship.

They are the precious gift of God, the source of true love, life and lineage.
    17. 17. The most holy place – the Holy of Holies The Ark The Holy of Holies The Holy Place The Tabernacle Only the priest allowed to enter Only your husband / wife Tablets of stone = A & E = Jesus & HS = Male and Female sexual organ G Through the Fall Satan entered the Holy of Holies God was chased out and became homeless The holy place can be entered by all It is like a person’s face – all can see it.

    23. 23. 4. The Purpose of Marriage (1) To accomplish Mutual Perfection + - + - God “ My spouse is the 2 nd messiah.” “ My children are the 3 rd messiah.” A husband makes his wife perfect. A wife makes her husband perfect. God’s love comes down. The perfection of 4GRH can be realized only through the foundation of conjugal love – we must marry to attain perfection Husband and wife should cherish each other – without you I cannot perfect the 4GRH and myself
    24. 24. (2) To capture God’s love The Love Organ – the most valuable organ Among all the creation God invested most in human beings and Within our being He invested His utmost effort and sincerity into the creation of the love organs. They are located in a “hidden” place. Without them we cannot attain the purpose of life Ownership: The love organ of the man is for the sake of one woman – his wife The love organ of the woman is for the sake of one man – her husband Before marriage keep your love organ pure and sacred for the sake of your future spouse All the things of creation fulfill their purpose by becoming one with Human beings – want to become part of our body even our love organ Absolute Sex = eternally one spouse God is attracted to and cannot separate from the place where Husband and wife join in love – he cannot help but follow them
    25. 25. (3) To perfect God Himself The growth of God – God grows through experience God experiences through our experience: Baby’s love, Child’s love, adolescent’s love All are aspects of God’s invisible nature.

True Family The Settlement Age Begin to settle the 4 great realms of heart and include all things That is the fulfillment of the purpose of creation - the 3 Blessings And God and human beings’ joy Which then is completed by expanding to all humanity Expand to all humanity
    28. 28. 5. The Three Original Palaces (1) The Original Palace of True love True Children’s Love True Brother-Sister 's Love True Conjugal Love True Parental Love The Perfection of True Love through completing: True Love True Life True Lineage + - God - + All 4 loves are combined and completed at the central point of settlement through conjugal love This is True Love The relationship is unchanging, eternal This is the ‘starting point’ Not just a feeling – completely one with God
    29. 29. (2) The Original Palace of True Life A True Life E + G - <ul><li>Connected to the origin of life </li></ul><ul><li>Life comes out of love </li></ul><ul><li>If love is true, life is true </li></ul><ul><li>The father’s and mother’s love </li></ul><ul><li>are intermingled and their lives </li></ul><ul><li>intermingle to create new life </li></ul><ul><li>The baby is the most precious </li></ul><ul><li>love palace fruit – it is part of </li></ul><ul><li>and the fruit of this secret/private </li></ul><ul><li>love relationship </li></ul>If the conjugal relationship is not connected to the origin, God, it is not true and the life that results is false. We are the descendants of false, fallen love and life Two loves and lives combine to make new life
    30. 30. (3)Original Palace of True Lineage True Love True Life True Lineage Heavenly Tradition Should have been established by Adam and Eve Establish God’s lineage >> start the Kingdom of Heaven Without marriage we cannot enter the K of H Blood linage = The linkage between God – parents – children through the generations True lineage = The continuity of True love and True life from generation to generation Adam and Eve – conjugal relationship nothing to do with God fruit / children nothing to do with God all descendants not belonging to God
    31. 31. IV. Textbook of Parental Love God A E A E Mother Father True Life Children have the same value as A/E The 4 th Heart – parental love begins from the labour pains experienced in child birth – like God who gave 100%+ - at cost of life – beyond life True Love Standard of goodness = to live for the sake of others - as God has exemplified Adam and Eve – 2 nd creators = the same value as God True Lineage
    32. 32. 1. The meaning of labour pains during childbirth. 2. The 2 nd Creator Through the birth of our children we become a 2 nd creator One couple Adam and Eve = one origin >> multiplication The children have the same value as the parents Adam and Eve are ‘more than God’ because they can bear many children 3. Experience and embody God’s love Selfless love : continuously give and forget - Do not keep a record. We taste the love out of which God created You become the flesh and blood of God’s love – embodiment The more children – the more your heart expands – more variety The peak of the pain of childbirth = investing 100% + At the cost of your life – giving and forgetting and giving again When a woman gives birth, she will inherit the same labour pain as God felt at the time of birth of Adam/Eve. Parental realm of heart (The 4 th Heart)
    33. 33. Section II The 3 Great Kingships & the Realm of the Royal Family 1. The 3 Great Kingships 4 th heart Parental Love 1 st blessing 2 nd blessing 3 rd blessing = dominion Eldersonship Parentship Kingship On the foundation of completing the 1 st and 2 nd Blessing, we receive The 3 rd Blessing = Dominion over All Things God wants to give all He has to such a King and Queen of love TF wants to restore Kingship because God’s Kingship can only be established through Adam’s kingship = the goal of creation 1 st heart Children’s Love 2 nd heart Brother-Sister 's Love 3 rd heart Conjugal Love Inclusive Fallen Humans – offer all possessions to God – not qualified Return our ownership to God – total living offering
    34. 34. The 3 Great Kingships – the kingship of 3 generations + God - The 1 st Kingship = God’s/grandparents kingship The Kingship representing the past The Kingship of the Invisible Substantial world The settlement point of the 4GRH The 2 nd Kingship = Parents’ kingship The Kingship representing the present The Kingship of the Visible Substantial world Children E A The 3 rd Kingship = Children’s Kingship The Kingship representing the future Kingship of the Invis. & Vis. Substantial worlds Substantial settlement of the Three Great Kingships = Established through 3 generations Continues for eternity

    36. 36. Direct line (Kingship) Collateral line Collateral line A G E C The Realm of the Royal Family Registration Blessing = engraft to True Family the Royal Family
    37. 37. Sec.3 Conscience 1. What is the Conscience? Conscience = original mind (DP explanation) pursues absolute goodness, the purpose of creation (principled, responsible, strives to achieve results that bring happiness to God) Conscience = the 2 nd God (everyone has their own conscience) a function of our heart which always pursues the same direction as God the small God inside me that belongs to me (exclusive to me) remains with me eternally (birth to spirit world)
    38. 38. True Father was looking everywhere in a search for the right way for human beings. Then he discovered the conscience, which is inside each person, and realized that all the answers are there. He was so happy – ‘Why didn’t I realize before!?’ Your conscience is always at work, talking to you and guiding you towards goodness. You should listen to and follow your conscience. If you have an unrighteous thought your conscience will shout out against it. Your conscience is aware of all your thoughts and feelings. It will never speak to you about evil things. Reflect – can any one of you declare that you never disobeyed the voice of your conscience? If you live a life where you continuously ignore your conscience it becomes difficult to hear and follow.
    39. 39. God is the root of the conscience The subject being behind the conscience The subject of absolute goodness God Conscience 2 nd God
    40. 40. God is the root of the conscience The subject being behind the conscience The subject of absolute goodness My conscience can only be satisfied 100% when : I live for the sake of God and others at the risk of my life. This is the standard of True Love and the life-style of True Father. This is the same for all nationalities, races and generations. God Conscience 2 nd God

    43. 43. 3. Our conscience is superior to God! (Remember that our conscience comes from God Who is the root/subject of our conscience) a. God created us with his heart that we become greater than God. He designed us to be greater than Himself – gave us conscience

God is always try to relate to us through our conscience – e.g. At the time of the Fall God asked - ‘Where are you? Why are you hiding?’ – ‘She gave it to me!’ The answer of the evil mind – self-justification. It is very hard for fallen people to repent and take responsibility . d. Our conscience needs to be sharpened – listened to. It has been ignored – wounded - has pain. (TF returns to USA > Danbury)

    49. 49. 3. Why is our conscience wounded? G Conscience Conscience In God’s Direct Dominion Our conscience is totally free – filled with joy Cannot be wounded (Cannot sin or hurt God) The conscience exists in an immature state even within the mind of a baby – it grows with us during the growing period.
    50. 50. 3. Why is our conscience wounded? G Conscience Conscience In God’s Direct Dominion Our conscience is totally free – filled with joy Cannot be wounded (Cannot sin or hurt God) The conscience exists in an immature state even within the mind of a baby – it grows with us during the growing period. The fall took place at the top of the growth stage. Eve’s conscience was desperately crying out – ‘Do not do it!’ Through the Fall Eve’s conscience was deeply wounded. Her conscience was overpowered by her self-centered physical desire. Emotion >> reason (Feeling to respond to temptation) Every time our evil mind defeats our conscience it is wounded again.
    51. 51. 4. The liberation of our conscience <ul><li>Repentance </li></ul><ul><li>We are so sinful that we are unaware of our sin. </li></ul><ul><li>We need time to study and pray deeply, away from our busy daily life. </li></ul><ul><li>Realize about our sin and how much our conscience is stained and wounded. </li></ul><ul><li>Check my motivation. </li></ul><ul><li>Our conscience is covered by fallen nature – like a film of dirt that covers it so that it is not able to function. </li></ul><ul><li>It is very hard to correct bad habits </li></ul><ul><li>We need to repent – clean up – become a pure container to hold God. </li></ul>

Internal Meaning of the Fall <ul><li>Changing of the Blood Lineage from God ’ s side to Satan ’ s side </li></ul>A AA Fall Restoration = Reverse Course Cut relationship with Satan Regain realtionship to God as son of His lineage Satan’s Wife Mother of Fallen Adam Physical Fall Spiritual Fall Satan Fallen Adam Reborn through the Blessing Restoration of Blood Lineage G E Central mission of Messiah = Change of Blood lineage =Blessing (and Give God’s word) Changed lineage God‘s >>> Satan‘s *Jesus should have been married. (Not intended to be an atonement) To become eldest Son of God Commandment Original Adam (God‘s lineage) Original Adam died Reborn as Satan‘s son Satan‘s lineage =
    64. 64. 2. Who is Satan? Lucifer >>>Fallen Archangel = Archenemy of God God Adam Eve Satan Eve Son Daughter Starting point of fallen humanity Satan‘s family / lineage Family God’s Joy and Happiness True love True life True lineage Enemy of love, words, property, sovereignty Adam: Substantializes The Living God Adam’s wife = God’s wife Mother of their children World God: In relation to creation Masculine Subject God wanted to create His own family – 3 Blessings True Family – central aim of the providence God became a lonely batchelor, Whose bride and family were stolen By His enemy = pain of broken family
    65. 65. <ul><li>God originally created the AA and Human Beings as eternal beings </li></ul><ul><li>(Destroy = violate His own creation – become a failure) </li></ul>The Reasons Why God could not directly destroy Satan and his dominion
    66. 66. <ul><li>God originally created the AA and Human Beings as eternal beings </li></ul><ul><li>(Destroy = violate His own creation – become a failure) </li></ul><ul><li>God originally created them to be His absolute, eternal and unchanging object of True Love </li></ul><ul><li>(Destroy = God of eternal sorrow) </li></ul>The Reasons Why God could not directly destroy Satan and his dominion
    67. 67. <ul><li>God originally created the AA and Human Beings as eternal beings </li></ul><ul><li>(Destroy = violate His own creation – become a failure) </li></ul><ul><li>God originally created them to be His absolute, eternal and unchanging object of True Love </li></ul><ul><li>(Destroy = God of eternal sorrow) </li></ul><ul><li>God must restore His children and creation back to their original position >>> restoration through indemnity >>> the providence of restoration </li></ul>The Reasons Why God could not directly destroy Satan and his dominion
    68. 68. How will Restoration be achieved? Satan said to God: I became an evil being. You should know why I became evil. I became such an evil being because I wanted to have Your love, God! This is the resentment of Lack of Love
    69. 69. How will Restoration be achieved? Satan said to God: I became an evil being. You should know why I became evil. I became such an evil being because I wanted to have Your love, God! This is the resentment of Lack of Love God had to agree with that. Therefore He loves Satan unconditionally Satan will only surrender to love Therefore loving Satan is the only way to solve the problem Jesus and True Father Mission of Abel = To love Cain
    70. 70. To what Degree should we love Satan? Satan said to God: I am a creation, so there is a possibility that I can go wrong. But, God, You are absolute and cannot become an evil being. You cannot change because of the object or the object‘s behaviour. I became an evil being, but You must love me more than when I was good, or You are not the absolute God.
    71. 71. To what Degree should we love Satan? Satan said to God: I am a creation, so there is a possibility that I can go wrong. But, God, You are absolute and cannot become an evil being. You cannot change because of the object or the object‘s behaviour. I became an evil being, but You must love me more than when I was good, or You are not the absolute God. The only way to gain Satan‘s surrender is by loving him Therefore, despite His broken heart, God killed His own feelings and sacrificed His own son in order to love Satan and to see His enemy liberated and happy, such that His enemy Achieves the happiness that God was denied
    72. 72. The course of restoration to bring natural surrender of Satan in the history through Abel figures. Millions of years of suffering – nobody knew God’s agony (Jesus lineage) Jacob Isaac Abraham Adam The broken hearted God remained in Hell as He tried again and again to gain the surrender of Satan by finding an Abel who could practice loving the enemy. The Abel camp was repeatedly hit, and God heard the screams, but He took responsibility saying: I did not love the enemy enough!
    73. 73. At first True Father thought that God was glorious But he came to realise that God is so lonely, so misunderstood, so much in pain, so whipped and crying. True Father embraced God and said: I finally understood He cried several days and months, trying to embrace and comfort God. No matter what hell I must face I will liberate God from His miserable state. I will crown God and put Him in His original position. True Father‘s motivation – from the start and for always until it is done – take responsibility to liberate God
    74. 74. True Father - I want to become the friend of the broken hearted God and be His companion The root of solving human problems is to liberate God That is human responsibilty - we made the problem. Out of his love for God many times True Father had to overcome his human feelings
    75. 75. True Father - I want to become the friend of the broken hearted God and be His companion The root of solving human problems is to liberate God That is human responsibilty - we made the problem. Out of his love for God many times True Father had to overcome his human feelings True Children: Understanding this heart digested their own pain They want to liberate True Parents We should unite with True Children
    76. 76. True Father - I want to become the friend of the broken hearted God and be His companion The root of solving human problems is to liberate God That is human responsibilty - we made the problem. Out of his love for God many times True Father had to overcome his human feelings True Children: Understanding this heart digested their own pain They want to liberate True Parents We should unite with True Children True Father: Please God send somebody to this earth every 100 years Who can love You more than me!
    77. 77. 3. The Position of Fallen Adam A AA G Satan = Satan’s son = Substantial body of Satan Sowed Satan‘s seed in Eve Therefore, all fallen men belong to Satan’s blood lineage and are in the position of Archangel – no right to children or property. E 1. Lucifer Central figure of millions of Angels & incorporeal world. Receiving a lot of love from God. Then God began to create the Corporeal world – not for me ? 2. The beautiful creation is for corporeal Adam! Eve the last creation = most beautiful! She is also for Adam – wife > lineage Even Adam will be ruler over the Incorporeal world! – Jealousy, lack of love Satan’s Wife <ul><li>Made Eve his wife </li></ul><ul><li>Eve seduce Adam </li></ul><ul><li>And made him Satan‘s son </li></ul><ul><li>3. Created his lineage </li></ul>Fallen Adam Fallen Adam
    78. 78. Adam Substantial God Eve God’s wife Children God’s children Cain Abel God’s descendants Seth born from Adam’s Girls seed/bone marrow True love life lineage  Cosmos is filled with God’s blood lineage Adam Substantial Satan Eve Satan’s wife Children Satan’s children Cain Abel Seth Satan’s children Girl Satan’s love life lineage  Under Satan’s Blood lineage Blood lineage – the value and importance of the True Family
    79. 79. Under Satan's Dominion 6000 years Satanic history Adam in the realm of Satan’s dominion Satan‘s blood lineage individual family tribe race nation world cosmos Body Adam fell at the age of 16. Human beings have the memory of living with God – want to return to that experience Therefore – idealism – utopian movements The ultmate utopian movement = True Family We are the main players centering on True Family Mind Adam‘s mind and body having good give and take action 16
    80. 80. Sec 2. The Results of the Fall ( from the perspective of the 4 Great Realms of Heart) 1. Loss of the First Heart (Children’s Love) If Adam had not fallen, he would have achieved: 4 GRH + the 3 Blessings  the Purpose of Creation=Eternal Happiness G Son Daughter parents children Children’s love <ul><li>The consequences: </li></ul><ul><li>Lost God – could not know God </li></ul><ul><li>Lost parents – touch of God, heart beat of God </li></ul><ul><li>- Deism , atheism, scepticism </li></ul><ul><li>b) Loss of self – loss of purpose and value (ignorance) – suffering </li></ul><ul><li>Cruelty > abuse > discrimination > racism > suicide > addiction </li></ul>
    81. 81. 2. Loss of the 2 nd Heart ( Brother-Sister ’ s love) GOD Japan USA Korea Kenya Lost sense of common parent > Lost sense of brotherhood of mankind. Lonliness, difficulty to relate. Self-centred – power and wealth just for myself – sex for myself – dominion centring on myself > conflict/war (power, land, wealth) Lost our common parent – no longer brothers/ sisters Cut from God >> cut from each other, Can‘t feel the other‘s pain – indifferent Conscience not operating Common Parent Brother nations
    82. 82. 3. Loss of the 3 rd heart (Conjugal Love) Children’s heart B & S’s heart No limitation – loving more than one not a sin Parent’s heart (the problem is people do not love enough) But: Conjugal love cannot be shared with any one else except my spouse. If given to others it is a sin!! Our conscience knows this . God’s place of settlement Satan settled before God Invaded sexual love Holy people ashamed of sex Settelment Place of the Four Great Realms of Heart
    83. 83. a. Fornication & adultery - greatest sin more than murder, because love is the root of life. First rule of K of H (CIG) is keep purity b. Prostitution – things can be bought and sold but not God’s children c. Pornography Act of prostitution – exposes sexual organs, c orrupts youth. -God+ Human Beings Children - Parents + Life = TRUNK Conjugal Love Sexual Love = ROOT Misuse of Conjugal Love
    84. 84. d. Homosexuality Purpose of life > resemble God and become one Evil = against purpose of creation = sin e. Incest Father – against God, wife, daughter, self Quadruple sin
    85. 85. 4. Loss of the 4 th heart ( Parent ’ s Love ) *Parental love is unconditional – like God’s love but people are immature – did not pass through the earlier hearts/ loves *Immature people >>>> Immature parents *Unable to love children – meeting my own unmet needs can’t meet my children’s needs  child abuse (physical, emotional and sexual) Original Cause = Separation from God The root of all other problems Cannot solve problems by laws or prisons Sinful man cannot solve alone Need sinless man – Jesus, True Parents Solution > God‘s words (heart), Blessing (love, life, lineage)
