"…The real sermon begins now. Here is the title and conclusion. Jae Sa Adam Gwan ShiDae DoRae "The arrival of the era of the fourth Adam's realm." In general you understand what this means, I think. Are we talking about the realm of the fall? No; we are speaking beyond the realm of the fall. What is the first Adam's realm? It is the realm of Adam and Eve who fell. How can we characterize the era of the second Adam? It was the realm of the chosen people from the time of Jesus. The third Adam is the time of the Lord of the Second Advent. It is an era needing indemnity because there is conflict between God and Satan. What can we say of the era of the fourth Adam? Because of the fall, the original world was turned upside down. Therefore the right side started climbing up, step by step. The meeting point of the left side declining and right side rising, God took the lower position and Satan the upper, but gradually the right side goes up to the right position, through the eight stages from individual to cosmic level. Because of the fall, the mind and body became separated to begin with. That's the way Satan took the upper position. But after the crossing point, God's side will gradually take the upper position and Satan the lower. This represents the entire 6,000 years of the history of restoration through indemnity. Upon this crossing point (21st century), which is the point at which God's side starts to take the right position, the blessing begins from the level of family, tribe, nation, etc., then the left side will be erased.
Originally the crossing point was to have been right after World War II, 1945, and the new heavenly order should have started then. But because of Christian disbelief this fifty-year course came about. Because Christianity in 1945 was supposed to have received the Lord of the Second Advent and start building the new world, but failed, Korea was divided, with the North taken by communism and the South by democracy. So the cold war started from that point.
The beginning of the cold war was in the peninsula of Korea, and the cold war will end there, too. The fall of man led to the division of mind and body, and expanded, and we have to make it right side up. That's why there were two camps in World War II, the allied nations that believed in God and democracy, and the axis. The allied side represented Abel, Eve and the Archangel, America, Britain and France. The other side was the axis forces. There was no Adam (just Abel), because Adam was chased out. Just as the mind and body divided, there was a division between Catholicism and Protestantism. At the same time, the countries were divided between allied and axis, just like our mind and body are separated and struggling. But this was the culminating point at which Catholicism and Protestantism should have become one, centering on the Lord of the Second Advent. If it had happened then, that was the right time for the entire world to have become one, as the mind and body becoming one. It was the right chance, physically and spiritually securing unity of mind and body on the worldwide level.
The lost true Adam, chased out at the fall of man, both spiritually and physically was lost in the Garden. Because that history of restoration has continued to today, and spiritual and physical unification were to have taken place, and all they needed was to receive the Lord of the Second Advent as the true Adam, and centering on true Adam the new world could have started. From that point, God's side would have stood at a 90-degree angle upwards, and Satan's side would have followed a 90-degree angle downward. The fall expanded from the individual to the world level. Within seven years of uniting with me, the foundation for blessing that we have in the world now would have been established. Christianity had about 800 million people. Among those, there was no God-centered family, but they were in the position to receive the blessing and begin such families.
But Christianity opposed the Unification Church and took me to be their enemy. At that time, the American missionaries in Korea controlled Korean Christianity, and they opposed me. That's why this foundation was lost. It required my 40-year wilderness course, and now what should have been established then has been established. The Lord of the Second Advent is the ancestor of the first, second and third Adam. In order to secure this position, the Lord of the Second Advent should liberate the entire spirit world and physical world, because they all are descendants of the three Adams. The false life, love and lineage started hell in the physical world and spirit world because of the fall, so true Adam's mission is to restore the true life, love and lineage and heaven in physical world and spirit world. We need to know why the first and second Adams failed, and on that basis we can become one with the Lord of the Second Advent and insure that there will be no failure now, and that we will be able to create true families in the world.
If Christianity had united with me in 1945, then one God-centered lineage of True Parents would have started as a race or nation. Following Satan you go to hell; following the Lord of the Second Advent you go to heaven. Satan goes down and the blessing way goes up. Their directions are exactly opposite. This world is the physical hell, hell in the physical world. The border between hell and heaven is our mind and body. We have two minds there. By receiving the Lord of the Second Advent on our level, we have to overcome the borderline between hell and heaven and then our blood lineage can be engrafted into the true lineage of True Parents, and erase the body's desire and leave only the mind's desire remaining. This requires absolute faith, love and obedience.
This world is not trustworthy, so we have to deny it completely. Because of Adam and Eve's disbelief, the fall took place, so we have to deny this world absolutely and have absolute faith in God. We stand, then, above the borderline of the separation of mind and body. Because Adam and Eve could not give absolute faith, love and obedience to God, they fell, so we have to go 180 degrees opposite. Repeat after me, "Absolute obedience." [Absolute obedience.] In the secular world they do not have this concept; they say they have freedom, but it is a false freedom that acts as the shield of Satan. We have to stop it. By denying this satanic world completely, we can become one with God again. We can stand on God's side. Is there anything to be saved from the American nation? [Nothing.] Is it heavenly or satanic? [Satanic!] What would we say of Christianity? It is on the same side as communism, in a way.
If you are a son or daughter in a family, can you be extremely individualistic? There cannot be any individualism in a family. There is a hierarchy and order and you cannot ignore that in the family. But in English, the same word, "you," refers to everyone, father, mother, daughter, son. It is a horizontal society. Who created it? In this flat culture, the way to receive God was eliminated. Who made it? Not God, Satan! . How can we explain that the central nation of Christianity has become the king nation of satanic power? Is America looking from God's viewpoint? We should be ashamed of it! We have to deny it. When I first came to America, I was told that everyone is Americanized within five years, but I have been "moonizing" America. What does that mean?The owner of absolute individualism is Satan [S.I.N. =selfish individual nature]
Sunnie, Moonie, Kingie. What are they? They are God's top gun concept. If Christianity had united with me, communism would have disappeared long ago, and may not even have emerged. Even Stalin died in 1953, three years after my release from Hungnam prison. Because of the opposition initiated by Korean Christianity controlled by American missionaries, which expanded to North Korean communists and American democratic world leaders, all jumped on the bandwagon and opposed me. Kim Il Sung became North Korea's president at age 34.
If Jesus had survived to 34, he would have taken control of the Roman Empire and Israel. Kim Il Sung was six years older than I was. At age 40, I could have had a grip on the world. That was the right time. Don't you think I had the ability to have done a good job with that? God's word and all today's content was ready to be shared at that time. Fifty years ago, I gave the same message I am giving today. We realize this through Hoon Dok Hae study. Even the sovereignty of Korea is struggling now. They have their eighth president and probably this is the end and I will have to help them. Because of their failure to unite with me, Great Britain, France and America started to decline. Because of their failure to unite with me, the Abel, Eve and archangel nations, together with 6,000 years were lost at that moment.
My mission is what? In the Old Testament era, circumcision was the condition to separate from Satan. It means bleeding from the man's love organ, taking the archangel's blood out. That is why religions demanded that people live without marriage. At the time of Jesus, the baptism was the condition. In the New Testament era, the entire mind and body were to have been cleansed through baptism. Without unity of mind and body, cleansed, they could not receive the blessing. The era of the Lord of the Second Advent the condition is the blessing, the change of blood lineage. You've done the 3-day ceremony. Satan occupied the Old Testament and New Testament eras, so we have to come out of them. All things and the children, humanity, belong to Satan. Through the 3-day ceremony, the wife gives new birth to the husband, the man. Without going through that, you cannot become a true husband. But on the third day, finally, the husband takes the upper position, the subject position.
Human history has been one of offering, sacrificing and abusing women. Women represent earth. In the Old Testament era, all things were sacrificed. The New Testament era saw the sacrifice of the children. In the Completed Testament era, there should be no road to the cross. This is the era of the realm of the indirect dominion, the completion stage. Because of Christianity's failure, the Lord of the Second Advent could not start his dispensation from the top level. The powerful nations had already disappeared in his eyes. He was cast out into the wilderness, to rebuild beginning from the Old Testament era. The foundation was there to receive me on the world level, but because of their failure we lost everything. There was no foundation left. Therefore, the Lord of the Second Advent chose the nearest enemy country, Japan, the Eve country, to do the dispensation, in place of Great Britain. In preparation for that, God somehow had prepared Japan just as He had Great Britain. For example, both countries drive on the left side. Culturally, French, English and American culture all exist in Japan. Japan inherited English culture and Roman law and German military force. It became the strong nation in Asia, like Germany in Europe.
The enemy country to God was Japan, but I chose it. What of Abel's country? What was I supposed to choose? [America.] Why? The Lord of the Second Advent cannot abandon the Old Testament and New Testament eras, which are represented by Judaism and Christianity. On that foundation, restoration can take place. So the Lord of the Second Advent had to secure . . . What position did America, Japan and Germany take? Did they welcome me or oppose me? They opposed. But since 1997, America has been changing. But this chance in America did not come by itself. It is the result of 27 years of my blood, sweat and tears in this country. The former Soviet Union had a grand scheme to take over the free world by 1984. Since I knew that, I inspired the blocking of Gorbachev from speaking in Congress, the SDI initiative and the declaration to the world that the Soviet Union was an evil empire. That was the climax of the fight between communism and democracy.
But the enemy had to be embraced by me again, in order to liberate the Soviet Union. It was not CNN or ABC or the CIA who brought the end of communism, but God, centering on my ministry. The history of modern culture must remember and record this. What benefit could I gain by fighting world communism? I did it in order to save world Christianity. Centering on Christianity, the Unification Church was the vanguard of the fight. The foundations for England, France, Germany and America were lost, but I chose those nations to work in God's dispensation. That's why I brought all the people from those enemy nations to this nation of America, in which Christianity was lost. Why did I have to do that? God is not in the position to choose twice a nation that failed. Therefore, it took me to choose America as the chosen nation to build the foundation to work with all the different religions and nations, beyond the level of religion and nation. So I brought young people from the enemy nations to rebuild the foundation that was lost in 1945. The strong foundation has been laid here, through relationship with different religions and denominations, and the Blessings took place, and like 1945 the foundation is ready.
America is Protestant and South America is Catholic. They are brothers but are like enemies, like mind and body. America is Abel, an independent nation. Opposition to the Unification Church has decreased and acceptance is increasing, so it is like 1945; the ground is ready. During the 40 to 50 years since World War II, America has been helping many countries in the world, but only one country met America's expectation: Korea. Also, Israel, which also became independent in 1948, is in this rank. If America lets Korea go, America will decline rapidly. It cannot let Korea go. If they do, they will lose Asia and the world. So America is assisting South Korea to persuade North Korea not to use missiles. If America departs from Korea, the peninsula will unite with Russia and even India and they will become the strong counterpart of America.
Without me, Japan, China, Russia will easily occupy Korea. How can America create world peace without me? Pacific culture world. Japan, China, Soviet, America too. How are they going into the future? Family kingdom, going up and up. Becoming family king. No one took that kind of kingship, only one man, me. I am the king of all humankind families. Amen! [Applause.] America does not have this kind of power. They cannot protect me. Russia, China cannot do it either. I am occupying the top place. Only God and I know what I have done, not even True Mother. I have expanded to that area, including spirit world. We have to lead the spirit world too.
In 1945, if Christianity had united with me, this foundation would have come then, and by the age of 80, the True Children would have been leading the entire world. The new millennium, the next 1,000 years to reach 7,000 years of human history, will be the era of Reverend Moon, the era of the family. Covering the world, no problem, always connecting to my foundation, organizing everything, everywhere flat, the settlement of the family, waiting for Reverend Moon to come, they will follow me forever. Families have been waiting for me for a long time. Do I have the power and ability to do so? Have my predictions come true or not? [True.] Do you consider yourself a person who can teach and rule the nations of the world, or who will receive guidance from the satanic world? [Leadership.] Do you have confidence in this! [Yes.] You are happier then me, then. Think of my life. Consider what I have come through, the suffering, pain and agony that I have endured to secure this. But you didn't do anything special and are receiving this. You are like the children of a wealthy family that did not do anything to develop the wealth. So you all need re-education through Hoon Dok Hae.
I came through the first Adam era to 1957, then second . . . now the fourth Adam era has started. The former is eliminated and a new era comes out of it. Do we retreat or march forward? [Forward.] What is that? In order for us to be able to march forward, we should eliminate the fight between mind and body, between Satan and ourselves, and liberate ourselves. This will lead to the world with no national boundaries. Who created them? Satan. He is the enemy of all humankind, of ideal nations and the ideal kingdom. He hates it. Does God need a visa to come to America? What of people in the spirit world-do they need a visa to come to America? [No.] What about Lincoln or Eisenhower in the spirit world, do their guests need an American visa to come? America means number one car country. Only car power. How can they push down undeveloped countries? Who made the phrase, one nation under God? Does God want that? He wants one cosmos under God. One nation is man's idea, the American people's concept. So if you say one cosmos, they will get stirred up.
I am giving this strong judgmental statement regarding America, but am I right? You may not love the CIA, but they may be here or a cousin of one. Everyone is related. My viewpoint is cosmic and it comes out as soon as I open my mouth. So you need to memorize it.
Upon the restoration of the three Adams' eras, I established the realm of blessing all the way to the infant stage. This is where the 4th Adam's era begins. Not God, but only True Parents can declare this. This is because we are in the position to liberate God. To liberate the parents with unfilial children requires more than just filial piety. Once we reach this completion of the restoration of the three Adams, we will continue to go up, centering on the centerline, the movement will continue for eternity. The first marriage was false, opposed by God, but this is the true marriage, approved by God, going up on all eight levels.
Yesterday, October 23, was the 13th day after October 10, which I declared to be the double ten day. Number 13 is 10 + 3. Jesus died at age 33, but by adding 10, 10 and 13, we reach 33, which is the restoration of Jesus Christ and the start of the 4th Adam era. In America, 13 is a bad luck number. The 13th was the day of Jesus Christ's crucifixion, but 13 has been completely restored, the unification of the physical world and spirit world, and east and west, and north and south. All those blessed couples in the world are in the position not just as restored Adam's family without fall, but connected to thousands of years of history being restored. Satan is completely taken care of. So liberation is accomplished and I declared the 9.9 day and 3.10 day. By doing so, all these things are completed. So in the 4th Adam era we pray in our own name. In Eden there was no religion; we are entering into that era.
That's why the Unification Church sign came down. We transcended it with the Family Federation. There is only one thing of which we can be proud, and that is the liberated, completed, God-centered families. Our tradition is to love the blessed couples worldwide before we love America[Liberia or Africa]. It's the same for every nation's people. Ever since I came to America, I have been educating Americans who are in the midst of fights between white and black and among denominations. I finally sent the leaders of America to Japan and even Korea, and they learned the tradition, and loved the mother nation, and came back to America and practiced this, and loved their enemies more than their own families and own nation of America. They have returned. Was it good or bad? Was this a subjective or objective action? [We stood up.] Did you learn to love your enemy nation than your own family and nation? [Yes.]
[Father speaks in Japanese to the Japanese sisters.]
Originally mind and body were divided, but here in the 4th Adam's era it is all united. The 4th Adam's realm begins here (pointing to diagram). This point requires a Mansei. Do we need a Mansei or not? Once we reach the completion of the individual level it equals the completion of the world level, and of the family level, cosmic level. Each completion has the same value. This is the territory of true love, the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth and in heaven. True love territory, I made up that term. Repeat it after me, True love territory. Whose territory is it? [God's.] No, no - mine. The individual sacrifices for the tribe, and so forth until you get to the point of sacrificing for the sake of cosmos and God. God is for the sake of whom? Me. This is all one. God is mine. The history of restoration was there for my sake, not Jesus'. For myself. So therefore it is the realm of liberation. Centering on True Parents and God, the 4th Adam era started and the realm of liberation is there. My family represents God, heaven and earth. We act on behalf of God, loving all things. Counting from yesterday, we have 70 days until January 1, 2000. The 7th millennium begins there. So we have to liberate all things, the world and spirit world. So what do we do?
Because of the false lineage, everything is in the world of lamentation. So we need to liberate all things, the world, spirit world, man and woman, mind and body, children, including 3 generations. So we have to create the family representing the world, so that's why I am mixing these families worldwide. Wherever you go there will be Japanese wives in place of your mother figure. You can build brother-sister, parent-child relations wherever you go. We can be totally free. If Americans go worldwide, you will be in the elder brother's position. So keep the tradition of the Father and Mother nations and practice it as elder brother. That's the meaning of the 4th Adam era. We need to reach the smallest units of village and town, to the precinct (tong ban) and neighborhood. Three stages - family, village and town. By doing so we can conquer the town. In our towns, there will be no liquor store, no homosexuality, no free sex, no incest, only absolute love and absolute sex, absolute, unique, eternal and unchanging. No divorce. Those who have divorced cannot enter the kingdom. We are not living for ourselves or by ourselves. We have our ancestors and descendants with us. So three generations should live there.
Without being taught we have to know where to go and what to do. In our world there are no obstacles anymore and no complaints. That is why we pray in our own name. But without results, we cannot say a word or pray. We can pray only with that result, because the prayer is our report. No more begging to God. God gave us everything. No we have to utilize it properly. It is not ours. It belongs to God, history and eternity. We should not waste it. Do not use it all necessarily. Be conservative, even with water. Have you thought about loving and conserving water? Have you loved grass? For whom did God create grass? It was for us. It is like a treasure for them. The masterpieces of art worth millions of dollars are not as valuable as one blade of grass created by God. Nature is immeasurably valuable, that we deal with each day. These are things God created by Himself as a gift to humankind for us to be proud of for eternity. If we go to bed, we should be able to say to the sun and nature, good night, I have to take a rest until tomorrow morning, so please take a good rest. As owner, I take this step. As owner, I have to give more love than God. God always loves them, but my love should be added to that. Appreciate the grass, trees and weeds in your garden, even more than the animals. Be full of that gratitude when you go to sleep. Have you felt that way?
When you look at the sun, you should be able to ask, "Oh my dear sun, how many of those Israelites' faces have you seen? How many suffering faces? No one could understand your sorrow looking at those people, but I can and I will comfort you." When the winter comes, the sun goes far away. Have you really been waiting for it to come back closer, counting the days on your fingers? The sun is going south, but what about you? Have you been longing for the sun? Even though the trees and grass are longing, are you as a human being? They are not owners, but they are longing. You are owner, aren't you? Whose sun is it? Does it belong to Adam and Eve? Through restoration, God wants you to be better than Adam and Eve, so can't you claim those things? When you look at a mountain, if you have a heart of ownership, the mountain will open its arms and welcome you. Have you loved the millions of insects? God created them because He knew Adam and Eve needed them. Even to the poisonous snakes, love them, feed them frogs. Even poisonous rattlesnakes may prepare to attack when they don't know you, but after many times, they relax when I approach. If I bring a frog; will it bite my hand or just take the frog? If someone wants to kill it, the snake will strike. In that sense, the snake is smarter than we are.
After offering love, we should take the ownership position. I love the ocean, fishing, and mountains. Do I catch the animals and fish just for food? No. In that sense, I am the best scholar studying nature, because of the amount of love I have invested. Without loving nature, you cannot truly love human beings. It takes steps. In your body, what do you love more - your eyes, ears, nose or mouth? God is in the position to like to see your eyes or ears being offered, but He will run away if you offer your love organ. Why? Because if you do, the human race will become extinct. So no matter what, protect it, do not give it as an offering. The five senses should protect it. It is the most precious thing.
[Father speaks in Japanese.]
We must be sure to protect ourselves, because history started in the wrong way and now the history of restoration is being culminated and we have every right to begin a new life as free men and women.
[Father speaks again in Japanese. Much laughter.]
There are three stages of blessing  we offer: rebirth, resurrection and eternal life. These represent the Old Testament, New Testament and Completed Testament eras, as well as all things, children and parents. That's why the Unification Church members now have to make an offering, the living offering. It was misery for humankind that in the Old Testament era the offering was divided in half. In the New Testament era the children, then couples in the Completed Testament age. Even I have come through that course. In the eyes of True Parents, all things represent the Old Testament era, children represent the New Testament era, and they represent the Completed Testament era. They all have been sacrificed. My life is the path of the cross, for the sake of your parents, relatives and tribe, I have come this course. Therefore I have tried my best to bring all of you along, but there is a point at which your tribe and nation should protect you.
I cannot be responsible for everything. So you need your spiritual children. Your grandparents may become your grandchildren, and so forth. Everything is turned around. So all those people who are ready to receive the blessing will be treated equally, having the same value. Without the fall, the perfection of the individual and family could have been done in Adam's family. Therefore in the last days, everything should be restored in my lifetime, one generation. True Parents' holy matrimony took place in 1960, plus forty we reach 2000. This is one generation. No matter what, this is the era to cleanse the entire world, including the spirit world. So I am giving the opportunity even to people in hell to do Hoon Dok Hae. Air flows wherever there is a crack. The power of life has this power to penetrate and infiltrate. It flows wherever it can, to create new life.
True Parents came and gave this precious blessing to the entire world, on the equal level. From yesterday on, the entire 6 billion people are now privileged to receive the three stages of blessing. This year's motto is The Cosmic Expansion of the True Blessing and Rooting Out the Satanic Blood Lineage, from the infant stage on. Those who participate on earth will not go to hell, even though their positions will be diverse based upon their actions on earth. The 4th Adam era is that in which we can love our own people, tribe and nation. Until now, in the course of restoration we had to love the satanic world, but now we can offer our love to our immediate family members to begin with, and our relatives and tribe.
By declaring the double 10 day, I have done everything for you. All the rights, privileges and blessings have been given you. We can even bless our own children in marriage. What else do you expect from True Parents? The Korean peninsula is still divided, but reunification will come naturally. We have the expansion of tong ban kyok pah, the neighborhood community building project in Korea. Once the Korean and American presidents become one with each other and True Parents, everything will be fine. Japan will follow but that does not really affect the dispensation. The era of mother-son is no longer; now is the era of father-children cooperation.
Everything is liberated. What else need I do? [Take a rest.] Resting means stalemate. What is left for me to do? Will people call me robber, or king of kings? [King of kings.] What if I have a hose connected to the liquor supply and it is constantly running through my system for forty days? The waste will go out through the sexual organ, flooding the front yard and filling up the neighbor's yard. I have to restore drunkards through indemnity, and it is not a sin. Do you wish me to be that way? We are talking about the course of indemnity, so I used that analogy, but I will not do that, don't misunderstand.
For what condition do you want to be used? The course of getting married and having a
