EDP 10-Hour, Part 2, Chapter 2: Moses and Jesus in the Providence of Restoration

  1. 1. Eixposiltiiloni of‘ the Divine li’rilnciple Diagramed Lecture Manual for Ten Hour Lectures PART II THE HOUSE OF UNIFICATION FOR WORLD PEACE
  2. 2. -‘ l‘ a. » ‘E ll,
  3. 3. ---------- -- Secrets concerning God's salvation ‘*w’ (Amos 3:7) Isllot knowing the principle , _ Unable to discern of God's providence the mysteries The Bible contains many secrets concerning God's work of salvation. It is written, "Surely the Lord God does nothing, with- out revealing his secret to his servants the prophets. " (Amos 3:7) However, without knowing the principle behind God's provi- dence, people have been unable to discem the mysteries con- cealed in the Bible.
  4. 4. Account of , Wat’ 70' a prophet's life I - ’ fallen P°°P'e to walk 9007393 07 Jesus‘ course to Jacob and Moses A save humankin . The biblical account of a prophet's life is not merely a record of history. Rather, through the life course of a prophet, the Bible discloses the way for fallen people to walk. In particular, we shall examine how God set up the providen- tial courses of Jacob and Moses as models for Jesus‘ course to save humankind.
  5. 5. The Model Courses for Bringing Satan to Submission
  6. 6. Model course for subiugating Satan Jacob : symbolic course Moses : image course Jesus : substantial course Jacob's entire course to bring Satan to submission became the model course for Moses and Jesus. Jesus came to bring Satan to submission in substantial terms. Moses walked a course that was the image of Jesus‘ course. Still earlier, God had Jacob walk a course that was a symbolic representation of Jesus‘ course.
  7. 7. Model course for subiugating Satan Jacob : symbolic course Moses : image course Jesus : substantial course Way of Israelites and humanity These model courses showed the way the Israelites and all humanity must walk to bring Satan to submission.
  8. 8. 1.1 Wh Jacob's Course and Moses‘ course Were set U as the Models tor Jesus‘ course e Goal of the providence of restoration: voluntary submission of Satan Peop| e_ot faith - r , Substantial_, - The goal of the providence of restoration is attained when human beings bring Satan to voluntagy submission and become his master. They must do this by fulfilling their given portion of responsibility. Jesus, as the Messiah and the true human ancestor, pio- neered the course to subjugate Satan and has since guided people of faith to follow his example.
  9. 9. 1.1 Why Jacob's Course and Moses‘ course Were Set Up as the Models tor Jesus‘ course e Goal of the providence of restoration: voluntary submission of Satan God Peop| e_ot faith ‘ , Substantia, !.. -‘X. However, Satan, who does not meekly surrender even before God, would by no means readily surrender to Jesus. Therefore, God called upon Jacob and Moses and worked through them to show the course for bringing Satan to sub- mission.
  10. 10. 1.2 Jacob's Course as the Model for Moses‘ and Jesus‘ Courses Satan corrupted humanity ‘ I course to bring Satan to submission (medel course) Jacob pioneered the course to bring Satan to submission. This course takes the path opposite to the way by which Satan corrupted humanity. Moses and Jesus went through courses after the pattern of Jacob's course. Let us study these courses together in this section.
  11. 11. ®Trium h in a trial at the risk of life Fell through Archangers temptation The first human beings should have been absolutely deter- mined to keep God's commandment not to eat of the fruit, yet they @ at the risk of their lives through the Archangel's temptation.
  12. 12. ®Triumph in a trial at the risk of life Fell through Archangel's temptation Triumphed over an angel (Israel) OAccordingly, for Jacob to complete the restoration of Canaan at the family level, he had to triumph in a fight at the risk of his life with an angel, representing Satan. Jacob triumphed in wrestling with the angel at the ford of Jabbok and received the name, "lsrael. "
  13. 13. ®Triumph in a trial at the risk of life Fell through Archangel's temptation Triumphed over an angel (Israel) overcame God's trial Triumphed over Satan Moses, before he could guide the Israelites into Canaan and thus complete the national restoration of Canaan, first had to overcome a trial in which God tried to kill him. Jesus had to overcome a trial before he could embark upon the worldwide restoration of Canaan. He battled with Satan at the risk of his life and triumphed over him during his 40- day fast.
  14. 14. ® Flesh and spirit Satan defiled our flesh and spirit —> Fallen nature Bread and lentils (Gen.25:34) Osince our fallen nature was acquired when Satan defiled our flesh and spirit, Jacob had to fulfill a comparable condition to remove it. oFor this reason, Jacob purchased the birthright from Esau with bread and lentils, which symbolized flesh and spirit.
  15. 15. ®F| esh and spirit Satan defiled __ F H at our flesh and spirit ’ 3 °" “ "re Bread and lentils (Gen.25:34) Manna and quail (Exod.16:13) Flesh and blood (John 6:49-53) To repeat this course in Moses‘ day, God fed the people with manna and guail, also symbolizing flesh and spirit. Jesus said: "Unless you eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. "
  16. 16. ©Separation of Satan from the corpse fiw Satan defiled the human corpse Embalming took 40 days (Gen. 50:3) Due to the Fall, Satan defiled even the human corpse. Jacob's body was sanctified with the blessing which he had received in life. In death, the disposition of his corpse also ful- filled a condition of purification; thus the embalming took 40 days.
  17. 17. ©Separation of Satan from the corpse fiw Satan defiled the human corpse Embalming took 40 days (Gen. 50:3) Michael contended with the Devil ' over the body (Jude 9) Body disappeared (Matt. 27:62-28:15) In the case of Moses, the archangel Michael contended with the Devil over the proper disposition of his body. We know that Jesus’ body disappeared, to the bewilderment of the authorities, leaving an empty tomb.
  18. 18. @_Restoration of the rowin eriod 3, 12, 70 Satan defiled the growing period Satan defiled the growing period of the first human ancestors. To restore this, God has set up conditions based on certain numbers signifying the growing period.
  19. 19. @Bestoration of the growing period (3, 12, 70) Satan defiled the growing period 3 days, 12 sons, and 70 family members When Jacob left Haran for Canaan, there was a 3-day period to separate Satan. He had 12 sons to restore in his genera- tion (horizontally) the indemnity conditions accumulated through the lost 12 generations from Noah to Jacob, and E family members to fulfill an indemnity condition to separate Satan from the 7 days of God's creation.
  20. 20. @Bestoration of the growing period (3, 12, 70) Satan defiled the growing period 3 days, 12 sons, and 70 family members 3 days, 12 tribes, and 70 elders 0 3 days, 12 disciples, and 70 followers Moses had 3 days as he guided the people out of Egypt, g tribes, and 70 elders. On beginning the worldwide spiritual course to restore Canaan, Jesus had 3 days in the tomb, 12 disciples, and Q followers.
  21. 21. ©Staff (symbol of the Messiah) CA fit which smites evil, leads the way and provides sup- port when one leans on it, is a symbol of the Messiah.
  22. 22. ©Staff (symbol of the Messiah) Crossed the Jordan River on a staff (Gen. 32:10) Jacob crossed the Jordan River and entered the land of Canaan while leaning on a staff. This foreshadowed that one day fallen humanity will cross the waters of this sinful world and arrive on the shore of the ideal world by following the Messiah: smiting injustice, following his guidance and exam- ple, and depending on him.
  23. 23. ©Staff (symbol of the Messiah) Crossed the Jordan River on a staff (Gen. 32:10) crossed the Red Sea with a staff (Exod. 14:16) cross the waters of the fallen world with the rod of iron (Rev. 2:27, 12:5) Moses guided the Israelites to cross the Red Sea with a staff. Jesus at his Second Coming will guide humanity to cross the turbulent waters of this fallen world to reach the shore of God's ideal with the rod of iron, symbolizing himself.
  24. 24. © Mother-son coo eration to se arate Satan Mother Root of sin Son Fruit of sin %'s sin implanted the root of sin in the lineage of human- kind, which bore E when E killed Abel. Since it was a mother and son who allowed Satan to enter and bear the fruit of sin, according to the principle of restoration through indemnity, a mother and son must separate from Satan through their joint efforts.
  25. 25. © Mother-son cooperation to separate Satan Mother Root of sin Son Cain Fruit of sin Jacob Mother's devoted support . . (Gen. 27:5-17, 42-45) Mother's help (Exod. 2:2) Mary fled to Egypt (Matt. 2:13) Jacob could not have received the blessing and separated from Satan without his mother's devoted support and wise advice. Moses could not have escaped death and been in the position to serve God's Vlfill without his mother's help. Mary saved Jesus‘ life by fleeing with him to Egypt, escaping from King Herod who sought to kill him.
  26. 26. ®Beturn from Satan's world to God's world Haran —: -~ Canaan (Gen. 31-33) The central figure entrusted with God's Vlfill in the providence must return from Satan's world to God's world. This is why Jacob journeyed from Haran, the satanic woiid, to Canaan,
  27. 27. ®Beturn from Satan's world to God's world Haran —: - Canaan (Gen. 31-33) Egypt —» Canaan (Exod. 3:8) Egypt —» Galilee (Matt. 2:14-15) And Moses journeyed from Egypt to the promised land of Canaan. After Jesus had taken refuge in Egypt shortly after his birth. he returned to Galilee.
  28. 28. Era dicating Satan Buried the idols (Gen.35:4) The ultimate purpose of the providence of restoration is to eradicate Satan. Signifying this, Jacob buried the idols under an oak tree.
  29. 29. Eradicating Satan Buried the idols (Gen.35:4) Nl Tore down the golden calf (Exod.32:20) Destroy this evil world Moses tore down the golden calf, burned it with fire, ground it to a powder, scattered the powder upon the water, and made the Israelites drink it. Jesus came to destroy this evil world by bringing Satan to submission with his words and power.
  30. 30. The Providence of Restoration under the Leadership of Moses
  31. 31. 2.1 Overview of the Providence Led b Moses Foundation for the Messiah Foundation for the Messiah HE Foundation of substance it .1 ‘A. Foundation of faith The providence of restoration led by Moses was built upon the foundation for the Messiah laid in Abraham's family. Nevertheless, the Principle still required Moses himself to lay the foundation for the Messiah by restoring through indem- nity the foundation of faith and the foundation of substance.
  32. 32. 2.1 Overview of the Providence Led by Moses Foundation for the Messiah Foundation for the Messiah El; at Central figure changed Foundation of substance Scope -['35 ml; nation Foundation of faith Whenever the central figure for the providence changes, the new central figure cannot inherit the providential Will without first completing a similar responsibility of his own. Furthermore, in this case, the foundation had to be laid anew because the scope of the providence had expanded from a family to a nation.
  33. 33. 2.1.1 The Foundation of Faith 2.1.1.1 The Central Figure to Restore the Foundation of Faith Oln the course of the Israelites‘ return to the promised land of Canaan after the conclusion of their 400 years of slavery, Moses was the central figure to restore the foundation of faith. oMoses' differences from all the previous central figures are:
  34. 34. 2.1.1 The Foundation of Faith 2.1.1.1 The Central Figure to Restore the Foundation of Faith Represented God (Exod. 4:16, 7:1) -— Prefigured Jesus (John the Baptist —= i > Jesus) First, Moses was put in the position representing God, acting in His stead. For this reason, God told Moses to be as God to Aaron (Exod.4:16). God also said, "See, I make you as God to Pharaoh. " (Exod.7:1) Second, God set up Moses to prefigure Jesus. Like John the Baptist after him, Moses was to make straight the way for Jesus.
  35. 35. a Descendant of Jacob : Built upon Jacob Moses, as a descendant of Jacob, could serve as a central figure in the Age of the Providence of Restoration. In his providential path, Moses built upon the tradition and deeds of Jacob. Their courses served as models for the path which Jesus would later walk.
  36. 36. 7 Descendant of Jacob — Built upon Jacob N Stood on the foundation of Joseph « Model for Jesus‘ course Infancy, death, national course) to restore Canaan Moses also stood on the foundation which Joseph had laid when he entered Egypt. Joseph's life, too, prefigured that of Jesus. Moses‘ infancy, childhood and death also prefigured the course of Jesus. In all these ways, Moses’ course to restore Canaan on the national level was the model for Jesus‘ course to restore Canaan on the worldwide level.
  37. 37. 2.1.1.2 The Object for the Condition in Restorin the Foundation of Faith Object for the condition: God's Word CD Providence of symbolic offering completed Indemnity period: dispensation of forty for the separation of Satan oUnlike Abel, Noah and Abraham, Moses did not need to make a symbolic offering. Rather, he could restore the foundation of faith merely by obedience to God's Word while fulfilling a plis_- pensation of forty for the separation of Satan. ®This was because: First, Moses stood on the foundation of the three successful symbolic offerings by Abel, Noah and Isaac, which completed the providence based on symbolic offerings.
  38. 38. 2.1.1.2 The Object for the Condition in Restoring the Foundation of Faith Object for the condition: God's Word CD Providence of symbolic offering completed ®Age of the Providence of Restoration (Old Testament Age) Indemnity period: dispensation of forty for the separation of Satan (33 Restore the providential periods defiled by Satan ®Second, by Moses’ time the age of symbolic offering had ended, for humanity had entered the Age of the Providence of Restoration (Old Testament Age), when they could receive God's Word directly. ®Third, as the providence was prolonged again and again, cer- tain conditions of indemnity were needed to restore the prov- idential periods defiled by Satan.
  39. 39. 2.1 .2 The Foundation of Substance Age of the Foundation Age of the Providence for Restoration of Restoration - - Family foundation National foundation of substance of substance In the A e of the Providence to La the Foundation for Restoration, God worked to lay the family foundation of sub- stance. Upon entering the Age of the Providence of Restoration, God worked to lay the national foundation of substance.
  40. 40. The position of Moses eat Stood as God, parent represented Jesus Since Moses stood as God to the people and represented Jesus, he stood in the position of parent to the Israelites when laying the national foundation of faith.
  41. 41. The position of Moses stood as God, - parent represented Jesus chm) Prophet to prepare - .1 the way for Jesus Abel Concurrently, Moses was the prophet to prepare the way for Jesus. Hence, he stood in the position of a E to Jesus. Therefore, with respect to the Israelites, Moses stood in the position of 7% as the central figure for the national founda- tion of substance.
  42. 42. The position of Moses stood as God, - parent represented Jesus . tit Foundation of faith chm) Prophet to prepare - .1 the way for Jesus Abel Foundation of substance When he restored through indemnity the foundation of faith, he stood in the position of a parent.

The most holy place was where the Ark of the Covenant was kept and God made Himself present, and symbolized the spirit of Jesus and the spiritual world. The holy place symbol- ized the body of Jesus and the physical world.

They had no choice but to complete the journey to Canaan.

  96. 96. Tabernacle - - Symbolic coming As long as even one person revered the object with absolute faith, God could continue the providential VWI through him. The Tabernacle was this object of faith. Since it represented the Messiah, when the Israelites built the Tabemacle, it signi- fied that the Messiah had already come in a symbolic sense.

This is why Moses‘ act constituted a sin.
  122. 122. Gonse uences of strikin the rock twice Although extemally Moses‘ striking the rock twice was a satanic act, still in a deeper, internal sense he gave the peo- ple the water from it and saved their lives.

  126. 126. Fiery serpents and bronze serpents complained —> Killed by fiery serpents Repented —> Look at the bronze serpent and be saved ~Iv Disbelieve -9 Vulnerable to Satan's attack Bepent, believe in the cross —> saved oThis foreshadowed that in Jesus‘ time, if the Jews were to disbelieve, God would have to leave them vulnerable to Satan's attack, and Jesus would have to be hung on the cross as the heavenly serpent to save humanity. Whoever then repented of his faithlessness and believed in the redemption by the cross would be saved.

Furthermore, after his death no one would know the whereabouts of his fiy.

  158. 158. Jesus Took on John's mission (Matt. 16:20) Hence, the foundation of faith which John had laid for the first course was invaded by Satan.

Moses‘ act of striking the rock twice was the remote cause which, should John lose faith, would compel Jesus to endure a 40-day fast and face three temptations in the wilderness for the purpose of restoring the foundation of faith.

This was the immediate cause of Jesus undertaking a dispensation of forty for the separation of Satan by fasting for 40 days and overcoming the three temptations.
  162. 162. Satan's purpose in tempting Jesus (Matt. 4:1~10) What was Satan's purpose in giving Jesus the three tempta- fions?
  163. 163. Satan's purpose in tempting Jesus (Matt. 4:1~10) Tempted 3 times Restore 3 blessings Accomplish purpose of creation Osatan induced the first human ancestors to fill, depriving them of the three great blessings and thus preventing the fulfillment of the purpose of creation. Jesus came into the world to accomplish the purpose of creation by restoring these blessings. Therefore, Satan tempted Jesus 3 times in an attempt to prevent him from restoring the three blessings and accomplishing the purpose of creation.
  164. 164. First temptation (Matt.4:3) = "Command these stones to become loaves of bread. " After Jesus completed the 40-day fast in the wilderness, Satan appeared before him and tempted him, saying, ''If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread. "
  165. 165. First temptation (Matt.4:3) = "Command these stones to become loaves of bread. " Turn the stone into bread —- Satan would possess the stone forever Jesus suffered from hunger in the wildemess, just as the Israelites had in Moses‘ day. When the Israelites could not overcome their hunger but fell into faithlessness, this eventu- ally let Satan claim possession of the stone. Likewise, if Jesus were to lose faith and satisfy his hunger by turning the stone into bread, abandoning his effort to restore the stone, Satan would possess the stone forever.
  166. 166. : "Live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God" (Matt.4:4) Become the incarnate Word of God OJesus' answer to this temptation was, "Man shall not live by bread alone, but by evegy word that proceeds from the mouth of God. " oln his reply, Jesus meant that although he was starving, he was less concemed about obtaining bread, which could keep his body alive, than he was with becoming the incarnate Word of God, who could nourish every spirit with life.
  167. 167. : "Live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God" (Marrt.4:4) Become the incarnate word of God V‘. , V Restore the individual nature Basis to restore God's first blessing: O By his victory over his temptation, Jesus fulfilled the condition to restore the individual nature to perfection and thereby established the basis to restore God's first blessing.
  168. 168. Second temptation (Matt. 4:6) 2 '-: ; ., :_s £: —‘£ : "Throw yourself down. " . 7"*fi Next, Satan brought Jesus to the pinnacle of the Temple and challenged him, saying, ''If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down. "
  169. 169. Second temptation (Matt. 4:6) : "Throw yourself down. " Fall —-> Satan would usurp Jesus‘ position OJesus is the main temple while the believers are like branch temples. Jesus came as the Lord of the Temple. When Satan dared Jesus to throw himself down, it meant that he wanted to usurp Jesus’ position as the Lord of the Temple by enticing Jesus to Q from that position to the lowly state of a fallen person.
  170. 170. : "You shall not tempt the Lord your God. " (Ma't‘t.4:7) At that moment Jesus answered him, "You shall not tempt the Lord your God. "
  171. 171. : "You shall not tempt the Lord your God. " (Matt.4:7) Satan should not tempt Jesus, the incarnation of God OJesus' response meant that Satan should not tempt Jesus, the incarnation of God, who works His providence in strict accordance with the Principle. Moreover, by prevailing in the first temptation and restoring his individual character as the incarnate Temple, Jesus had already secured the position of the Lord of the Temple; therefore, Satan had no condition to tempt Jesus again.
  172. 172. : "You shall not tempt the Lord your God. " (Matt.4:7) Satan should not tempt Jesus, the incarnation of God Jr Restore all believers to branch temples, brides and true children Basis to restore God's second blessing: O oBy overcoming the second temptation, Jesus, the main tem- ple, the bridegroom and the True Parent of humanity, opened the way to restore all believers to the positions of branch temples, brides and true children. Jesus thus estab- lished the basis upon which to restore God's second bless- mg.
  173. 173. Third temptation (Matt.4:9) 3 High : "Fall down and worship m. " mountain Finally, Satan took Jesus to a high mountain and showed him all things under heaven and all their glory, saying, ''All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me. "
  174. 174. Third temptation (Matt.4:9) 3 High : "Fall down and worship m. " mountain Lord of creation: submit to Satan Coming in the capacity of a perfected Adam, Jesus was the Lord of creation. Because Satan knew this, he led Jesus to the top of the mountain in recognition of his position as the Lord of creation. Satan then tempted Jesus, hoping that Jesus, the second Adam, might also submit to him as Adam had submitted in the beginning.
  175. 175. : "You shall worship the Lord your God. .." (Matt.4:10) Jesus replied, "You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve. "
  176. 176. : "You shall worship the Lord your God. .." (Mat: t.4:10) Satan SIIOUIU IIOIIOI‘ and attend JESUS This answer meant that Satan should honor and attend Jesus, who came as the body of the Creator. Furthermore, by over- coming the two previous temptations, Jesus already had laid the basis to restore God's first and second blessings, where- upon he would naturally restore God's third blessing and govern the creation. Hence, there was no longer any basis for Satan to contend with Jesus over the natural world.

  178. 178. 3.2.1 .3 The Result of the Forty-Day Fast and the Three Temptations G) Restored through indemnity: —All that had been offered for foundation of faith oFirst, in the position of John the Baptist, Jesus restored through indemnity the foundation of faith, thereby restoring all that had been offered to God for laying the foundation of faith over the course of the providence, including the offer- ings of Cain and Abel, Noah's ark, Abraham's sacrifice, Moses‘ Tabernacle, and King Solomon's Temple.
  179. 179. 3.2.1 .3 The Result of the Forty-Day Fast and the Three Temptations G) Restored through indemnity: —All that had been offered for foundation of faith —All the dispensations of forty for the separation of Satan oFurthermore, Jesus restored through indemnity, all at once, all the dispensations of fopty for the separation of Satan lost over the 4000 years since Adam, including Noah's 40-day flood, Moses’ three 40-year periods and two 40-day fasts, 40-day mission to spy out Canaan, Israelites‘ 40 years of wandering in the wildemess, the 400 years from Noah to Abraham, and the 400 years of slavery in Egypt.

The second worldwide course thus ended in tragic failure.

The Christ at the Second Advent will complete, both spiritually and physically, the third worldwide course to restore Canaan.
