Kodiak Conclusion

Dear Family,

All in all the Kodiak experience was a profound time to be with True Parents. Father went through the May speeches at Hoon Dok Hae with us. Our True Parents are standing on the front line. We concluded our time in Kodiak. True Parents took us to a beautiful stream about 1 hour drive from Kodiak. We did Salmon fishing and then sat on the beach with True Parents while Father called on different wives to sing.

It really reminded me of the testimonies of our early members with Father as well as that of Joe Tully and our Elder American brothers and sisters who spent these kinds of moments with our True Parents. The foundation of everything is Father's heart of true love. He emphasized on this path how we must become one with our spouses. Even if you spouse is already in the spirit world you still must become one. Oneness of heart is a spiritual matter. Once we achieve oneness we are always together - forever. All of these experiences lead us to understand that we are living with the King of Kings. We must go forward with the heart to connect with Father's mind and thought.

The path that we are on is very hopeful yet also very precise. Father emphasized how much do we understand the meaning of the Cheon Il Guk blessing. We inherited this blessing based on the burning ceremony set the condition to cleanse our sin. Father had a vision when he went into the hospital that almost all Unification members, though forgiven were still caught in a big net. Linking them with their past. Though we are forgiven, our lives have not changed enough to usher in God's Kingdom. At this stage we have the authority to remove all barriers in all nations, between all religions and between all races. According to the foundation of our path toward oneness with God and True Parents and the perfection of our character God is ready to dwell with us and work through us. Because we had not achieved this level. Father had to pay additional physical indemnity through the trial from March 16 thru May 1st. During the May period Father made a new dispensational providence for the start centering on the Word. The declarations and contents given during the serious of May speeches were the words for this new start. (May 2, May 4, May 10, May 17th etc.) Father on June 1st gave a 7 hour speech that represented the 7 days of creation. Father asked strongly that everyone must stay with him throughout the 7 hours. (Usually Father does not make such a request). On that basis Father could give us the forgiveness begin anew. Coming out of this trial victoriously Father paid the indemnity necessary that we could be protected and forgiven. We now stand on this foundation.

Therefore beloved Blessed Couples we must stand very firm during this time. We should be creating Ambassadors for Peace (from all professionals and VIPs), supporting the work of the second Israel through the American Clergy Leadership Conference and the American Leadership Initiative (education of civic and social leaders). To develop the youth and students we should now develop the Lasting Love movement of Students on Ivy League and all major campuses in America and the world. The Women's Federation for World Peace should be strengthened and supported. Please unite with your organizational leaders and support your Regional and Vice Regional Directors and the committees of elders they are assembling to guide the dispensation of builidng the Cheon Il Guk. Let us support with all of our heart and now once again march to Israel to bring reconciliation between the sons of Abraham.

Let us be absolute in our attitude of faith at this time. As is was with Esther in the Bible - God chose us "for such a time as this."

Esther 4:13 - 14: Then Mordecai commanded to answer Esther, Think not with thyself that thou shalt escape in the king's house, more than all the Jews. For if thou altogether holdest thy peace at this time, then shall there enlargement and deliverance arise to the Jews from another place; but thou and thy father's house shall be destroyed: and who knoweth whether thou art come to the kingdom for such a time as this?

Esther did not hold her peace but cried out to the King, knowing well that such an act was a life or death matter. As she went to the King, she called upon Jews to fast and pray for her for she said,

Esther 4:15 - 16: Then Esther bade them return Mordecai this answer, Go, gather together all the Jews that are present in Shushan, and fast ye for me, and neither eat nor drink three days, night or day: I also and my maidens will fast likewise; and so will I go in unto the king, which is not according to the law: and if I perish, I perish.

Risking her life she went to the King. Entering his chamber uninvited was an automatic execution unless there was one condition - That was that the king would hold out his scepter. Then the person entering would be pardoned.

Esther went in and the King held out his scepter. He heard of the plight of the Chosen people and his heart was moved and they were liberated.

Thank you for your courage Esther.

Thank you for your courage Blessed Women of America.

Thank you for your faith Blessed Families.

Rise up America.
