The Words of the Jenkins Family
Concerning The Opening Of The Cheon Jeong Palace - The Original Palace and Temple of God
June 9, 2006
The Original Palace is a unique temple and central home for God, True Parents, True Family and all humanity. God is the vertical True Parent and through the fulfillment of their course as True Parents, Father and Mother Moon, who have now restored Adam and Eve's position can stand as the horizontal True Parents for all people.
Based on the Principle of Creation, God always intended to dwell in True Families as His temples, extending his dwelling eventually to all families who complete the purpose of creation. In this light, Adam and Eve should have created a True Family in obedience to God's commandment and should have allowed God to dwell in them. Due to the failure of Adam and Eve, God's dwelling could not be with them and because we descended from Adam and Eve who fell, God was not free to dwell in us. Jesus, through his special birth came with the lineage of heaven and came as the second Adam and fulfilled Adam's role on the individual level. He became the dwelling of God as a True Adam. He would have established the position of True Parents on earth if he had been supported by his family and his people. He was not, therefore the Second Adam proclaimed that there must be a return and thus the providence of the third Adam became necessary.
Only through Adam and Eve completing their responsibility on earth creating the True Parents and True Family who have one heart with God could God dwell permanently in the hearts of humankind. The complete fulfillment of Father and Mother Moon as the True Parents has been confirmed by God, Jesus, and the founders of the great religions. That confirmation - that they are the True Parents - is rapidly expanding throughout all nations of the world.
Through the coronation providence, True Parents were also affirmed as the king and queen of Peace vertically by Heaven and by representatives of every religion and every nation. This set the first condition for the opening of the era after the coming of heaven and the opening of God's Original Palace and Temple. This also allowed God to give authority to True Parents to administer profound grace to all humanity regardless of faith - this created the condition of total release and total grace in which even our ancestral, racial, national and other collective mistakes that our forefathers made will no longer bind us as a curse. We are liberated through the grace of this era!!
The second condition that Father established is that the reading and studying the Word of God (Hoon Dok Hae) is central to the path of unifying our minds and bodies with God, unifying our family and establishing our families as True Families. Cheon Seong Gyeong was created to lift up the "Word" as central to our perfection and growth. By studying and learning the Word through Hoon Dok Hae, we can establish our families as owners of Cheon Il Guk and eventually perfect our love and become True Parents to our own families and tribes. This condition allows us to enter the Temple with True Parents.
The Cheon Seong Gyeong and the three speeches that are now being read throughout the world tour are consistent with God's eternal core Truths that has been revealed in the scriptures of the major religions. Therefore through this all religions can come into cooperation and harmony. Only through the foundation of religious harmony of all major religions can we celebrate the opening of God's Temple and the Peace Kingdom and that God is now dwelling with mankind. Therefore we are grateful for the many prominent religious leaders who have come with confidence that their traditions are being blessed and strengthened through this moment in history. Thus, representatives of all the world religions will be present for this day of celebration and dedication. These religious leaders know that God is drawing all people of the "Book" or scripture together as one family of God.
The third key condition for the opening of God's eternal palace on earth is the blessing of all humanity, which was conducted by True Parents through the 120 Nation World Peace Tour in 2005 and is being further extended through True Mother's tour of 2006.
True Parents' historic world blessing tour of 2006 began in Korea in March, in which one million received True Parents' Word and the Holy Juice and the Blessing of Marriage. These representative blessings allowed God to claim grace for the whole nation of people opening the door for unity all faiths and families. The current 120 Nation World Tour, which has now been completed in America, Japan, and many key nations of Asia, is setting the condition that all humanity is receiving the change of blood lineage and being blessed by God. Again the Blessing is based on the Word and the condition of bring our marriages and families into obedience to the Word that we remain faithful to our spouses. Again True Parents have emphasized the central importance of this preparation for our families to enter the Original Palace through our daily reading of the three key speeches that are being given in each nation on the world tour. In the Era after the Coming of Heaven we enter the Kingdom of God as blessed couples and families. We enter as the image of God.
In addition, the fourth condition required to enter the Original Palace is that the historic divide between Abel and Cain be dissolved. Therefore, as Father has completed Adam's responsibility and True Mother has fulfilled Eve's role as the bride, True Mother is now completing the additional responsibility that Eve as the mother should have fulfilled by unifying Abel and Cain. It is for that internal reason that True Mother is now traveling with three sons as well as with key leaders such as Rev. Kwak and the Continental Directors, Dr. Walsh and other important leaders. Through the tour we are setting the condition of unity and ending the barriers between all divided brothers of Abel and Cain. That is why Father has not been traveling on this world tour but is prayerfully supporting True Mother as she fulfills the mother's role to unify Abel and Cain. True Mother is thus courageously going this course with Father's heart and spirit connecting and reconciling all divided brothers and setting the condition for their unity with the True Adam. On this basis True Parents, True Family and all humanity can enter the Original Palace. Through the world tour all the conditions that have divided the Abels and Cains of the world are internally resolved in the spirit, now - through reaching out and embracing one another, there will begin a period of the rapid and external resolution of all conflicts and the reconciliation of all enemies will be achieved. Therefore we should participate in the World Peace Blessing Tour with a heart of repentance for our shortcomings in loving one another while also feeling a heart of profound gratitude as all are being blessed and all divisions of Abel and Cain are being resolved forever.
Since all divisions are being resolved and the True Family has now been completed, True Families of all religions and races are now rapidly being established and multiplying throughout the world. God is free to dwell with his people - all people.
The Original Palace is the first completed Universal palace or temple of God in which God can dwell permanently on earth through True Parents and true families. God can dwell from this moment on with representatives of all races, nations, religions and cultures who are considered one through the Holy Wine Ceremony and the Blessing of Marriage. All people who have engrafted into the true olive tree are now considered the one family of God on earth. This transcends all boundaries; and all people are welcome into the Kingdom.
As Isaiah prophesied, (Isaiah 56:7) " ... them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people. "
True Parents will open the Original Palace on the mountain in Korea with key religious leaders of all faiths and central leaders from all societies. This will be God's central palace of the Kingdom of God on Earth (Cheon Il Guk). True Father has said that he will stay in the palace for a short time and offer it all to God, emphasizing that this is God's palace and first temple in the era after the coming of Heaven. The Original Palace will be an eternal central point for all God's people and will stand as the first permanent Universal dwelling of God on earth and the gateway to the substantial realization of God's heavenly kingdom and the heavenly nation of Cheon Il Guk (the Nation of Cosmic Peace and Unity).
This is the fulfillment of scripture:
Revelation 21: 2 - 4 - "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 sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away."
With Gratitude to God and True Parents,
Dr. Michael Jenkins
