A Miracle Is Occurring In Chicago - July 5th Blessing
June 30, 2003
Tremendous persecution came after the clouds of witnesses in Chicago. There was a serious move on to destroy ACLC. Now, however the ACLC movement in Chicago has exploded. That's why True Parents chose it for the historic 2003 Interreligious and International Blessing in Pastor Barrett's church. One year ago after the Clouds of Witnesses on July 4th many predicted that Pastor Barrett would deny True Parents. Now one year latter on July 5th he is proclaiming before the world that True Parents are forever are the ones chosen by God to bring the Kingdom of God. Now Pastor Barrett is happy with the Clouds of Witnesses !!! ( He laughed last Wednesday when Father asked that it be read for the Ambassadors for Peace. Pastor Barrett said, "You know, it doesn't bother me anymore. I love Father so much. If he wants it read. Let's read it." Brothers and sisters bring your pastors to Chicago and see the glory of the Lord.
The Chicago Prayer breakfast on June 17th was a great development for ACLC. Over 200 pastors attended the Pleasant Green Baptist Church Co-Pastored by Rev. Dr. James Porter and his wife. Dr. Porter came with us on the Holy Land Pilgrimage. He stands absolutely firm with True Parents on taking down the cross and the Clouds of Witnesses testimony that Father is the one anointed by Jesus to fulfill the Second Coming.
This is the spirit of Chicago. Pastor Barrett has become 10 times stronger since his Jerusalem experience. " He opened the Prayer breakfast with the spirit of Jerusalem. Saying now, I realize more than anytime before that True Parents are doing the most significant work for peace in history. It is indisputable and undeniable. No other religious leader has done this. That's why Father and Mother Moon are the True Parents of Humanity."
Rev. Jesse Edwards took the floor saying, " Many ask me why I have grown my beard. I tell them this. My son was in Texas and meeting with challenges and I really felt in my heart that he should come home. I told God, I don't want to tell him to come home, I want you to tell him. Therefore, I will sacrifice something. I hate to go without a shave and my wife hates it worse. I will not shave until my son comes home (if that's alright with you God). He approved. God you are so great. Please bring my son home. Then I started to let it grow and I prayed everyday. Please God let him come home. My wife complained because she hates the beard, I hate it too but I prayed that God would work. Suddenly my son called and he said, Dad, I'm coming home now. Alleluia. God is totally real. ( Pastor Edwards informed me today that he shaved his beard off this weekend because his son arrived !!) Then Rev. Edwards proclaimed that this it the time when our prayers will be answered. God has anointed and blessed True Parents to bring us the blessing. My wife and I have never been the same since we took the Holy Wine and went to the blessing. It totally transformed our marriage. Now clergy across America have come to understand that a new age has dawned, the age of the Blessing of Marriage. Folks, its time to bring the family back to God. The ACLC is the movement that can tear down the walls. The marriage movement cannot be stopped. This is the time of the Second Coming. Jesus has opened the way through Father and Mother Moon.
But nothing that has great value is easy. It always requires sacrifice. Sometimes we go through trials but through those trials we find the sweet holy presence of the living God. I can relate with Peter and Paul and the trials that they endured. I can follow the way of the thorny path because I can see that God is with me every step of the way. Father Moon suffered every day but he just keeps going. As he goes now Israel is being transformed. As he goes the Jews and Christians are becoming one. But I tell you pastors, you will be tested. We must be tested to be found worthy to lead. Satan will try you to see if God is really with you. My denomination tried to stop me. They condemned me and brought me before a tribunal. But I could not renounce what God had given me. I know the living God and no denominational title is more important than following the will of God. This is real. They tried to get me to give up ACLC and Father Moon but Jesus told me to stay the course. I had severe trials in my church but God has delivered me from the trials and from the darkness. My church was padlocked the day I joined Mother Moon on the tour last September when Bishop Stallings and I were proclaiming the Second Coming. The Lights and Industry Division of the city came along with the Fire Chief, zoning and several other top department heads of the city. They padlocked my church and we were forced to worship in the park across the street. The congregation was challenged but those who love the Lord overcame and now we are bigger than ever. One of the department heads told me that he got orders from above to shut me down. However we overcame and now they say they have to support our church because we are more up to code than any church in the city. We overcame folks. The Blessing has power to help you overcome in your church, in your community and in your family. I can't wait for the Missionaries to come. I can't wait for God to send the victory for America. Rise up pastors and be not afraid. The Day of The Lord has come. Alleluia."
Bishop G. Augustus Stallings hit the floor. Within three minutes, noted Civil Rights Leader Rev. A.I. Dunlap of Carey A.M.E. Church stood to his feet shouting, "Amen, Amen, Amen." 30 other pastors followed standing and shouting. Detroit ACLC Leader Rev. Hatcher hit the floor. Wisconsin ACLC Co Chair Bishop Witherspoon hit the floor, Indiana Chairwoman Rev. Monet Beverly hit the floor. Standing and praising God. Why?
Bishop Stallings proclaimed, " True Parents have given you the authority and the power to take our families, communities and the nation of America back for God. The power to take the family back is directly from God. It comes through the blessing of True Parents. It was an incredible outpouring of spirit. Then Bishop Stalllings claimed the victory for God. He said it was almost one year ago that we were in Chicago and the Clouds of Witnesses caused a great trial for all of us. Can we believe that Jesus actually announced from heaven that Rev. Moon is the One!! This caused trials and tribulations but we serve a good God and today he shows us that he has approved our faith.
Now Chicago has 200 pastors here preparing for the blessing !!! Pastor Barrett, who they tried to stop is now standing strong. You have the power. Don't be afraid. Step out of the Box !!! -- If you do you will see the power of the Lord manifest. Stay in the Box and you won't see the power. STEP OUT OF THE BOX - and SEE THE POWER AND AUTHORITY OF THE LIVING GOD PLACED IN YOUR HANDS..
We just came back from Israel and the Rabbis have come together and wept with us. They said it would never happen but it has happened. God has shown the way and now a miracle will come to Chicago on July 5th. True Parents have chosen this special place with Bishop Ki Hoon Kim, Chairman White and Rev. Owens to show out !!! You have the power !! Say it. Shout it. "You have the Power !!!" We have the Power !!! "We Have the Power !!! " We are not afraid for the day of the Lord has come upon us. "
AMEN AMEN AMEN. !!!
Brothers and Sisters a Miracle is about to occur in Chicago. Four Jewish scholars and leaders came together with us this week after the Ambassadors for Peace and studied the Divine Principle. They were overwhelmed by the Pilgrimage and the fact that the Christian leaders have taken down their crosses to receive repent and embrace the first Israel. They are now coming to Chicago after the Middle East Peace Inititative --- They are coming to participate in the blessing. They have all joined the ACLC and believe in Father as the one that Israel has longed for. The First and Second Israel are now working side by side to witness that the Day of the Lord is Upon Us.
My brothers and sisters, have courage to step out of the box and see the authority that God has given you come to life. You have the Power !!!
If you have a pastor or VIP that you want to have an experience in history and to receive the blessing in this historic church. -- The First Church in America to welcome True Mother. Come to Chicago on Saturday, July 5th -- The Glory of the Lord will be manifested on that day.
RISE UP AMERICA, WE HAVE SEEN YOUR GLORY NOW IN THE 144,000 Couple Blessing and the four blessings last year. RISE UP AMERICA, WE HAVE SEEN YOUR GLORY IN YOUR TRUE CHRISTIAN CHURCHES TAKING DOWN THE CROSS AND EXCHANGING IT FOR A CROWN. RISE UP AMERICA, WE HAVE SEEN YOUR GLORY IN EMBRACING AND LIBERATING THE RABBIS AND THE PRECIOUS BRIDE OF ISRAEL, THAT WAS YOUR FIRST AND DEAREST LOVE. RISE UP AMERICA, WE HAVE SEE YOUR GLORY NOW IN THE HALLS OF CONGRESS AND HAVE SEEN THE DAY OF THE LORD PROCLAIMED IN THE NATIONS CAPITOL. RISE UP AMERICA, EXPAND THIS BLESSING MOVEMENT THROUGH CHICAGO TO THE WORLD, RISE UP AMERICA, WE HAVE SEEN YOUR GLORY IN THE SECOND CONFERENCE WHERE ONCE AGAIN JEWS, CHRISTIANS AND MOSLEMS FROM THE MIDDLE EAST COULD SEE A LOVE THAT FIRST MANIFESTED IN ISRAEL WHEN THE CROSS WAS BURIED AT THE POTTERS FIELD AND GOLGOTHA. THEY COULD SEE ON JUNE 28th and 29th at the Middle East IIFWP Conference that the love was real. The Rabbis invited the Christians to come to the Shabbat prayer of the Hafdalah to end the Sabbath. The Christians could finally connect to their root through these Rabbis who wept and felt love.
It is real. True Parents love is real. And now we march on to peace in the World Culture and Sports Festival in Korea and finally the Third Israel conference in August which is the third "Pilgrimage" conference." It is real. We now go to the third Israel to bury the cross in the Fatherland. We go to the Third Israel to bury the cross at the 38th Parallel. We go to the Third Israel to shout and see the walls of the 38th Parallel come crashing to the ground and to watch True Parents create the world peace zone there.
The DAY OF THE LORD is UPON US. REJOICE AND BE GLAD.
Victory is ours saith the Lord !!!
