“The purpose of God’s providence of restoration is to restore completely the fallen world to the original world which God intended. Therefore, although the time of their salvation may differ, all fallen people are predestined to be saved (II Peter 3:9).Yet, as was the case with God’s creation, His providence of salvation-a work of recreation-cannot be completed in an instead. It begins from one point and gradually expands to cover the whole. Therefore, in the providence of salvation, God first predestines one person to be the central figure and then calls him to a mission.”
Bible Reading: Rom 8:30
“Those whom He predestined He also called; and those whom He called He also justified; and those whom He justified He also glorified”
To my fellow Liberians, allow me to extend warm greetings and love to all of you, and your families as we celebrate another Christmas here in Monrovia- the original homeland of Christopolis or the “City of God”. My peace message this year has to do with our national purpose. We all know Liberia to be the first and thus oldest independent nation in post-modern Africa built on Christian Principles. But as we celebrate Christmas this year 2018 it is imperative that we understand why our nation was chosen by Lord Jesus Christ to be “ the Nation of Destiny for Africa” and what that destiny is…Let us prayer (Mt 6:9-13):
“Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be they name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, and the power and the glory, forever . Amen”
2. Why is Liberia a Chosen Nation of Destiny for Africa?:
Rom 9:15-16: “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion” So it depends not upon man’s will or exertion, but upon God’s mercy”
The founding of Liberia was a calling from Heaven. We have done nothing to earn such a calling. Our ancestors as free slaves from America were guided here by Lord Jesus (Heaven) and the Holy Spirit (Earth) in two waves, to pioneer the founding a nation of destiny for Africa. They were to be the new chosen people, like Israel of Judaism, but for Africa. Their mission was to build a new city of God in the darkness of Africa, centered on the gospel, in preparation for the second coming of Christ. For their mission to be a success, a foundation had to be made for them to receive Lord Jesus in His 2nd Coming.
According to the principles of restoration outlined in the bible, the successful foundation for the Messiah was to be laid through the unity of two brothers: Cain as the eldest son represented by Indigenous Africans and Abel as the younger son represented by Christianize African. Their unity had to be stimulated by their common mother. In this case the mother of both brothers was the soil of Africa, and her name became Liberty-In- Africa or Liberia.
The first pioneers served as the new prophetic Abel-tribe for Africa. They proclaimed Liberia’s 1st Republic as a nation of destiny for Africa in 1847. By 1857 they united with their Cain brothers’ of the Maryland Colonization Society, so the American State of Maryland becoming Maryland County under the Republic of Liberia. The John the Baptist prophet chosen by heaven to awaken the indigenous people of the Kwa-tribes as restored Cain (Children of God) in readiness for the Coming of Christ was Prophet William Wade Harris of Maryland County. His ministry lasted from 1910 to 1929 starting with his anointment in prison by the Angel Gabriel.
This period from 1910 to 1929 was very special for global Christianity. It represented the period prophesied in the bible as the time for the 2nd Coming of Christ on earth. Prophet Harris’ vision came at this time of final preparation with the goal of Africa (through Liberia) serving as a linkage to the Lord’s global ministry. So in this way Liberia was chosen by heaven to serve as an elder brother for Africa’s Unity with the New Jerusalem coming down from heaven as a Bride Nation of God. The Lord was born in 1920 in Korea. He began His public ministry in 1954 under the umbrella of the Holy Spirit Association for the Unification of World Christianity (HWS-UWC) after being anointed by Lord Jesus Christ himself in 1936.
What is Our Responsibility as a Nation of Destiny for Africa ?:
“Then said they unto him, What shall we do, that we might work the works of God? Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God , that you believe on him whom he hath sent. They said therefore unto him, what sign showest thou then, that we may see, and believe thee?” John 6:28-30
In Liberia, heaven’s plan was to prepare Liberia as a seed nation of destiny for Africa by working through the unity of church and state. The role of the church like the mind was to educate and raise all citizens as children of God possessing good character and values, but most important as children able to recognize their True Parents Gods. The role of the State, like the body, was to establish good governance with Freedom, Liberty and Justice for All citizens. On this unified foundation of church and state working together centered on God’s will, heaven sort to build an everlasting kingdom on earth through the returning of Lord Jesus and His Bride as the living tabernacle of God on earth, and as the True Parents of heaven earth and humankind. Thus the final prophesy in the book of Rev 21:1-4 talks about the New Jerusalem coming down from God out of heaven:
“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away, and there was no more sea. And I john saw the Holy City, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying. Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people and God himself shall be with them and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away.” Rev 21:1 to 4
Here in Africa, Liberia was chosen by heaven to be a central nation for Africa’s unity as the United States of Africa (USA) under the new kingship of God on earth. The True Whig Party (1869 to 1980) was the political party responsible to spearhead the process of good governance growing and developing in Liberia; while the various churches and spiritual institutions had the role of education and preparation of values and character. Yet after 111 years of social-political dominance of the TWP and the churches, they collectively failed to fulfill their destiny to unite Liberia as one nation under God with Liberty and Justice for All. So during the Easter season of 1980, representing 133 years of spiritual protection under the banner of Christianity, we saw the fall of the 1st Republic of Liberia and the death of William R. Tolbert as the John the Baptist figure or Head of State. This whole scenario can be compared to John the Baptist losing his head just prior to the crucifixion of Lord Jesus Christ on his 33rd birthday. It can be shown that the failure of Israel and John the Baptist to receive Lord Jesus as the Messiah was the root cause of Lord Jesus’ crucifixion and the rise of Satan’s Evil Dominion on Earth as global Communism linked to World War I, II and III.
The Rise of the Second Republic of Liberia (1980 to 1990) was to be a clear sign of preparation for the second coming of Christ, for those with eyes to see. For just as after the fall of Adam and Eve, when Satan took dominion over the earth, becoming the God of this world (II Cor 4:4); we saw the rise of a Dominion of Evil (D.O.E) in Liberia’s second republic headed by President Samuel K. Doe. Regrettably, so few had such eyes to see and hearts to understand the signs of that time. Instead, the tragedy of our civil wars left us all victims of evil governance evident by rampant corruption, disease, ignorance and poverty. Even the work of the TRC fell on deaf ears. As the Lord’s global ministry expanded as the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU) International, its roots were also planted here in Liberia as a base for a new beginning.
Our Collective Responsibility and Second Chance to Receive God’s Blessing by 2020:
In the 1920’s Prophet Harris gave us a prophecy concerning Liberia’s future destiny for Africa. Our historians refer to it as the D. Twe Prophecy because it was said to be spoken to President Tubman by D. Twe during the 1951 elections. Mr. Twe sort to contest the elections in 1951 but was somehow disqualified from running. Later he escaped to Sierra Leone. He gave this prophecy to Tubman. In summary it stated the following:
“ …Tubman you will fall, and a man from the east will rise. He will rule with an iron hand but if he tries to go beyond ten, he too will fall and Liberia will see the worst days of its history. But after that, by the third leader, God will choose someone with His own heart ( A leader with the Heart of God) and Liberia will see the Golden Age of its destiny”.
This prophecy spoken in the 1950’s has been fulfilled to the letter. Tubman fell in the 1970’s with Tolbert taking over as Liberia’s 20th President in 1975. This ended the reign of the First Republic of Liberia prior to the rise of the “Man from the East”. Through the life Samuel K. Doe as Liberia’s 21st President we can clearly see how he fulfilled this prophecy of "the man from the east". He ruled from 1980 to 1990, exactly ten years. From 1990 to 1997 we saw the seven years of political chaos with the elections of 1997 bringing Charles Taylor to power as the first of three possible Presidential periods destined to usher in the Golden Days of our national destiny.
Clearly Charles Taylor didn’t exhibit the “Heart of God” in his leadership style, but instead resembled the heart of selfishness practiced by Lucifer Himself. As our second candidate we elected H.E. Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf as the 23rd elected President of Liberia. She was given 12 years to exhibit the “Heart of God” in her leadership, but clearly as we have not seen our Golden Age of Destiny, we can only conclude that she too failed heaven’s expectation. Of course the world saw her as a great success endowing her with its highest honors both on the world level and in Africa. This goes to show that man’s expectations are far different from those of Heaven.
In December of 2017 we the people of Liberia elected H.E. George Weah as our 24th President. According to this prophecy he is the final choice heaven will give us to fulfill our collective responsibility in establishing God’s good governance here in Liberia as a Nation of Destiny for Africa. This will be a clear sign of our having separated from Satan as shown in fig 1 above.
In 2013 The Lord of the second coming established the New Jerusalem here on Earth prior to His ascension in 2012. It is called Cheon Il-Guk in Korean and is now governed by His Wife H.E. Hak-Ja Han Moon.. All we have to do as a nation is to have the foresight to connect to that kingdom by committing ourselves to the practice of righteousness in governance represented by the establishment of IAPP (International Association of Parliamentarians for Peace) in Liberia. This is the foundation of leadership having the “Heart of God” and by the grace of God's Holy Spirit we in Liberia have taken this first step ( read details in ref 6 below).
So my Christmas message to Liberia this 2018 is an appeal for all our leaders both from the church and the state to also receive the Marriage Blessing of Heaven being offered to all humankind by the Lord of the Second Coming as the True Parents of heaven earth and humankind. As the eldest Coupe in Liberia to have received this blessing I know beyond a shadow of doubt that the education and training provided by this Blessing of Heaven will usher any nation into its Golden Age of Destiny beyond 2020. Love you all forever… Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Please visit our website for more details: https://www.truelovfamilyfoundation.org
 The first wave was headed by evangelicals and Quakers as co-founders of the ACS, while the second wave was headed by Southerners who likewise believed in the importance of liberating free slaves. There is much controversy regarding the true motivation of the ACS but for the purpose of this message I refer to the first wave as Abel-type with the second wave being Cain-type.
 Thus the first name of Monrovia was Christopolis meaning City of God. The hallmark of this city was to be good governance where leaders rule with the heart of God centered on righteousness.
 A careful reading of Divine Principle part-two provides all evidence of how, when and where the Lord will return and that evidence is justified by Rev 19,20,21 and 22 in the bible/
 She received the Noble Peace Prize in 2011 and the Esteemed Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African Leadership in 2017. Clearly she was our greatest Presidents considering our fallen state as a Failed State. She served heaven as a womb for our rebirth as a nation of destiny for Africa.
