30度を上回る、猛暑にも負けない、熱い熱気が、さいたまスーパーアリーナの会場を埋め尽くしました。

神霊と真理で一つとなる統一家。

真の父母様の特別な恩賜のもと、場内を聖別する、1部の清平役事が行われ、賛美の歌と、国旗パフォーマンスを皮切りに行事が始まりました。

文善進 世界平和統一家庭連合 世界会長

今、韓鶴子総裁、愛するお母様、私たちの愛する真のお母様を、暖かく、大きな拍手でお迎えしましょう。

2万名の熱い歓声の中、登壇された、真の父母様は、命のみ言を通して、母の国、神日本を再び、覚醒させてくださいました。平和世界のビジョンと共に、「その夢に向かって共に行こう」と、呼びかけられた真の父母様!

真のお母様のみ言

宇宙の主人であられる創造主・神様が、主人であられます。その主人を正しく知り、その主人のみ意に適うように生きる人類となってこそ、平和世界が可能なのです。この国が天の父母様に侍った神日本になるようになるとき、その位相が世界を抱く母の責任を果たす神日本になるようになるとき、世界のすべての国々が子女たちとして父母を敬うようになるその日が来るでしょうか、来ないでしょうか。 特に島国は大陸を恋しがります。それで私は、韓日海底トンネルを、日本と韓国が一つになって造り、南北が一つになった位置で、ユーラシアを経て全世界に向かうことのできる平和高速道路を造りたいです。すでにアフリカ大陸では、希望峰からしようと発表をしました。南北米を連結するチリのサンティアゴからアジア大陸まで連結して、韓国へと通ずる世界高速道路を主唱しています。そのような観点から見るとき、日本は韓国と一つにならなければなりませんか。なってはいけませんか。 今現在、為政者たちは過去の過ちを認めなければならないでしょう。そうして未来のもっと大きい目標に向かって、私たちは共に、家庭連合と一緒に、UPF青年連合、女性連合、すべての機関が世界平和のために前進する、跳躍するこの日となることを祝願します。

名古屋と、1地区の、約400名の青年学生たちは、力強いかけ声で、真の父母様に対する、無条件の心情を奉献し、

真の父母様!愛しています!

3,000名の、男性食口で構成された、合唱団は、場内を大きく盛り上げ、天に忠の心情を捧げました。

母親と父親、子女たちの、孝情に満ちた美しい姿と共に、天に向かう、固い決意が捧げられました。

神日本・家庭連合・希望前進・決意大会の、最後を飾った決意式!

田中富広 神日本家庭連合 副会長

私たちは、日本宣教60周年の、勝利的基台の上に、天地人真の父母様が、祝福された母の国、神日本の使命を完成、完結して、勝利した、天一国の国民、祝福中心家庭となることを、真の父母様の前に決意する!決意する!

勝利の総進軍を決意する、2万名の祝福家庭の力強い歓声が、日本列島に広がっていきました。

その後、神日本の食口を代表した、5つの地区の地区長たちに、孝情苑が伝授され、日本宣教60周年記念・希望前進決意大会の、全ての日程が、勝利的に奉献されました。

その翌日、真の父母様は、母の国、日本を訪れた、アメリカCARPの青年学生、310余名を招待され、特別午餐の時間を共に過ごされました。

2週間にわたり、韓国と日本、摂理の父母の国の、聖地を巡礼した、アメリカCARP!

2年前、LA・CARPを中心とした、会員40名の、日本教育ツアーを皮切りに、昨年、会員の3倍化がなされ、120名の聖地巡礼が行われ、さらに今年も、その3倍の、360名が、日本の地を踏みました。

ジョシュア・ホームズ CARP会員

真のお父様と、お母様のみ言は常にはっきりとしています。アメリカ、日本、韓国は、同じ目的と、真の父母様の孝情の文化で、一つとならなければなりません。私は、きょうが、それを象徴する日であると感じました。

特に、真のお母様を中心に展開されている、世界の摂理と、神アフリカの摂理に対する、ユン・ヨンホ 世界本部事務総長の発表は、青年学生たちに大きな希望を伝えました。

全ての内容を喜びで受けられた、真の父母様は、天一国の未来を担う、青年学生たちに、祝福と愛のみ言を下さいました。

真のお母様のみ言

私は、あまり知りませんでしたが、私の声がとても美しいそうです。そしてまた、私は、それほど知りませんでしたが、私の笑顔が、百万ドル、千万ドル以上の笑顔だといいます。

それなら、その笑顔を惜しんで、皆さんにだけ見せてあげるべきですか?

天の父母様の夢、真の父母様の夢、人類の願いは、天の父母様を中心とする人類一家族、平和世界、地上天国です。ですから、「一生懸命、その道のために走って行こう!」「その先頭に立つアメリカCARPのメンバーになろう!」 それは、すごいことなのです。韓国、日本を抜いて、アメリカが先頭に立つ。それは、誇らしくないですか?そう信じてみましょうか?うん、ありがとう。愛しています。

神韓国に続く、神日本の、希望前進の決意と、神アメリカCARPの勝利の報告に、真の父母様は、この上なく明るい笑顔を浮かべられ、食口たちと、幸せなひとときを過ごされました。

真の父母様を根として、出発した、第1世代の夢が、2世代、3世代の夢として、継承されている、

天一国、神世界の今日!

真の父母様が、五大洋・六大州に植えられた愛は、今や、世界中で、美しく花咲き、豊かな実を結んでいます。

今、私たちは、天に向かう孝情で、一つとなり、天一国創建の主人となることを、誓います。

Peace Starts with Me Vienna 2018, True Mother’s Message

April 29, 2018, Vienna, Austria, Wiener Stadthalle

The following is an unofficial translation of True Mother’s message.
(from familyfed.org)

Respected distinguished guests, religious leaders, and ambassadors for peace from all around the world who came here for this day—especially ambassadors for peace and Family Federation members who made the long trip, traveling thirty hours from Russia to be here today—ladies and gentlemen, religious figures and leaders representing Heavenly Africa who came here to the Heavenly Europe region, thank you.

How can we live in a peaceful and happy world? Today we take great pains to think about what we can do to live in a peaceful and happy world. However, the things occurring around us make us anxious about the future. I see the European region especially as a region that Heaven has prepared. As Jesus Christ went the way of the cross, he prophesized that he would return. Christianity began by the Apostles that resurrected through the works of the Holy Spirit as they waited for the Messiah to return.

Christians received unspeakable persecution in the early days. After Rome recognized Christianity, it traveled through the European continent, from the Italian Peninsula, crossing to an island nation, Great Britain. Then the nations centered on Britain spread [Christian faith] out to the world under Christ’s name and opened the Atlantic Civilization Era. However, they did not know Christ’s essence. Caught up in their own selfishness, they put the benefit of their own nations first. So the result was different from what they had intended. In the end, rather than a movement that gave true love, it ended as a culture that took much away.

Externally, Europe began the industrial revolution. They achieved civilization, and due to scientific developments, people gained convenience. Yet, many problems occurred due to being unable to maintain balance. If humans continue in this way, the future of human life and even the planet we live on cannot be guaranteed. It is true we are at a point when we cannot help but worry. We have reached the limit of what human strength alone can do. People must know what kind of being the owner of the universe, God, our creator, is. Only through [knowing] that can all problems be solved.

In the beginning, originally when God created heaven, the Earth and all things, he created based on his form. He created as plus and minus in the mineral world, stamen and pistil in the plant world, and male and female in the animal world. Lastly, he created the human world as man and woman, Adam and Eve, as the Bible calls them. In particular, God gave humankind a growth period. At that time, [Adam and Eve] should have lived a life of becoming absolutely one with God, the Creator. However, during that time, when they had not fully matured, they developed greed. Due to that, the fallen human beings of today, who have no connection to God, were born.

Heaven could not just throw away fallen humanity. The omniscient and omnipotent God cannot fail. Because God gave human beings’ responsibility, unless a person who can accept Heaven’s will and become the [good] ancestor emerges from within humankind, God cannot realize his purpose of creation. Thus, Heaven had no choice but to go through the bitter and difficult providence of restoration through indemnity.

Heaven selected the Israelites as the chosen people and wished for them to achieve a foundation at the individual, people, tribal, and national levels. How difficult must that have been that it took four thousand years? After the long period of four thousand years, Heaven sent the Messiah, Jesus Christ. The longed-for messiah had come but Mary, who gave birth to him, figures in Judaism and the Israelites could not fulfill their responsibilities. The central figure who would accept the providence’s will and realize God’s purpose of creation and whom [God] had sent after the long period of four thousand years had come but a foundation to help him had not been prepared.

In conclusion, he had no choice but to go the way of the cross. Jesus went the way of the cross and prophesized that he would return. Through him the Christian cultural sphere was born.

Christians have a responsibility. They must not just blindly wait for the Messiah to come, riding on the clouds. They must know what the Messiah will do when he comes and prepare for it. The Messiah came as the only son of God and said he would hold the marriage supper of the Lamb when he returns. Then, from the Christian culture sphere, the only daughter of God who can be the Messiah’s partner must be born. However, the European region, where Christianity began, was unable to prepare this. Throughout the history of God’s providence, he has given people responsibilities. If the individual or people are unable to fulfill their responsibilities, God does not use them again. This is because they have indemnity left that must be paid.

Heaven chose a people who could give birth to the only daughter of God. Thus, in 1943 from the Korean peninsula in the East, the only daughter of God was born. This event is the truth of the providence. Korea was liberated [from Japan] in 1945. After Korea’s liberation, Korea was divided [based on] democratic and communist thought. At that time, a devout and spiritual Christian group believed the returning Lord would come somewhere near Pyongyang. Therefore, the three generations of my family, who had devout faith, did not consider going to southern Korea. Heaven gave birth to me after six thousand years and knew I needed a period of growth and thus had me head south. Then in 1950, the Korean War arose. At that time, South Korea did not have the strength to face North Korea. Because Heaven needed to give me a time of growth, God mobilized the UN Forces comprised of sixteen nations. That was how the democratic nation of South Korea came to be. We can see how much Heaven wished for the birth of a victorious person who could realize God’s purpose of creation. We can see how miserably God waited for the day when humankind’s ancestor would give rebirth to fallen humankind through the Blessing Ceremony and God could embrace them as “My son” and “My daughter.” You must know this historical truth.

The Old Testament Age is already in the past. The New Testament age is also already in the past. The prophesized Messiah returned in 1960, met the only daughter of God and they rose to the position of True Parents. Christianity should have prepared the environment for this, but Christianity is still unable to understand this foundation. Yet the providence develops. True Parents laid down roots on earth. Therefore, Heaven was able to give birth to many blessed families who could lay down roots. Just in the Europe region, there is a fifty-year history.

In that time, they went through many difficulties due to those in the Christian realm misunderstanding them. Furthermore, there were many difficulties due to Communist Thought, which came out of the Christian realm. In particular, the early European members engaged in missionary work through underground activities in “Mission Butterfly” to liberate the people of countries suffering under Communist regimes. That there were many sacrifices is true. Yet those who knew the providence and knew Heaven’s circumstances took a path of unchanging absolute faith.

I would like to say this to you all: The past Christian providence in Europe failed from being in the position of not knowing Jesus’ essence. Yet now through True Parents, we know that God, the Creator, is our Heavenly Parent. Heavenly Parent has gone through the bitter, tear-filled and painful six thousand years of searching for his longed-for children. The time has come for you that stand in front of Heavenly Parent as blessed children born through True Parents to fulfill your responsibilities.

Salvation is not only salvation for yourself. Each of you must save your tribe. That is why I have told blessed families to fulfill their responsibilities as tribal messiahs. They must do their utmost in all places around the world and realize their responsibilities as tribal messiahs. You must go on a path not only as the messiah of your tribe but as the messiah for your nation and for the world so you can become filial children and patriots in Heavenly Parent’s presence. True Parents opened the Pacific Rim Civilization Era, during which we share true love. Please be aware that there are blessed families and second- and third generation members who are embracing all humankind through the true love of living for the sake of others under the banner of the Hyo Jeong Culture of Heart Revolution. That is the only path for humankind to live in a world of peace.

How bitter will the 7.5 billion people of the world be if they go to spirit world not knowing True Parents, despite being alive at the same time as True Parents? Your ancestors headed out to the world under Christ’s name. Now in the name of True Parents, you will, I hope, become proud people of Europe who fulfill all your responsibilities as tribal messiahs, national messiahs, and messiahs who will save the world. Thank you.
