The Words of the Jenkins Family
March 18, 2003
This past Sunday evening Father gave strong guidance concerning the education of the Christian Clergy. He is deeply praying for Christian ministers to fulfill their responsibility. He was excited and very inspired by the results of DP Clergy convocation held last week on the ocean at the Ocean Place Resort in New Jersey. Father was encouraged by the fact that that the ministers are receiving the Principle in a very profound way and supporting his revelation concerning the cross.
He emphasized with Dr. Yang that the current education of 12,000 Christian leaders in the Divine Principle is very central to God's dispensation. The fact that they are accepting the Divine Principle and ultimately True Parents is the restoration of the failure of Christians in Korea to welcome Father just after World War II. Father also said that this Divine Principle education of the Second Israel (Christian leaders) directly relates with the world events, especially on the Unification of North and South Korea and the current crisis in the Middle East. Christianity must help the first Israel to restore its role and ,in addition, address the urgent need for Christianity to embrace the Abel type Islamic world. He also emphasized that IIFWP also plays a very crucial role in this dispensation.
Father asked that all blessed central families (especially the 2400) in America connect directly with this providence. America is the Second Israel and directly represents Christianity on the world level. Therefore our work with Christianity determines the direction for America and the world. ACLC must not only embrace the Jewish leaders but also the religious leaders representing Islam. Father said that this Divine Principle education of the Second Israel (Christian leaders) directly linked to the world events, especially on the Unification of North and South Korea and helping the first Israel to restore its role. In addition, it lays the basis for the urgent need for Christianity to embrace the Abel type Islamic world. Most importantly, on the foundation of the DP, the Christian clergy can fulfill their most essential role in leading the movement of the Blessing of Marriage and also the Blessing of Interreligious couples (i.e. Moslem and Christian.)
Yesterday, Father asked that, as we complete the education of 12,000 clergy, we must think about how to ignite the movement that will end the era of the cross. Through the Divine Principle seminars coming up in Chicago, LA and Washington D.C. 800 to 1000 key clergy of ACLC will be receive the inspiration of the DP. This will become the basis to ignite this revolution.
To our surprise in the New Jersey conference, we found that many clergy have been prepared to go beyond the cross. (One professor and theologian of New York University, another major Christian pastor and publisher from Brooklyn and the President of the New Jersey chapter of the National Baptist Convention all stated that they had already moved beyond the cross in their churches - they confirmed that they will stand with Father Moon in ending the era of the cross by lifting up the essence of Jesus - which was his love and forgiveness on the cross leading to resurrection and life)
Father is very serious about this condition of educating 12,000 clergy and removing the cross. All blessed central families are strongly encouraged to bring clergy to the DP convocations, sponsor clergy by helping with their transportation and / or bringing clergy to the one day convocations. Our goal is that on Good Friday 120 ACLC clergy nationwide will have a public ceremony (with the press) to take down the cross. From there it will expand.
Removing the cross will remove the barriers between the first and second Israel. (Upon that foundation he guided us to organize the ACLC Clergy to conduct a conference in the Holy Land that will help the First Israel to embrace Jesus and in addition foster unity of Christianity, Judaism and Islam. On that foundation Father said that the Second Israel (Christian Clergy) will be able to go to the Third Israel of Korea and foster peaceful unification of the Fatherland.
Right now True Parents are standing strongly in the center of this incredible final dispensation of the Last Days. As Cheon Il Guk Owners blessed on the Third Stage of Blessing let us to stand firmly and squarely heart to heart with Father and Mother on the path of God's dispensation. We will bring victory on every level.
