Life In the Spirit World and On Earth

3. Life On Earth And The Treatment Of Diseases
1) Life on Earth Leading to Hell
Although we may not see the death of countless people as days pass by, God suffers from His children's pain, and lives His life filled with a deep sigh and bitterness. There are large groups of people. We cannot even tell what kinds of sin they committed or where they came from. There are people with their eyeballs lost, people with their legs cut, people with their mouth exploded, people with their mouth twisted, people with none of their intestines; people healthy, but exploded and hung down. There are people with their every finger bent and twisted, and their eyeballs popped out and hung down, people with their arms but who seem stagnant, people with their hair pulled and exploded head, people with their legs stuck together and cannot walk, people with their feet but who cannot function because they are curled up. How can I express all these with words?
Though cruelly misshapen and miserable in appearance, these are none other than God's children. Nevertheless, since they come to this spiritual world and stay in the situation of their spirit being stepped on, being ill, and being destroyed by Satan, how would God's heart (shim Jung) be for He cannot help but must simply stand by and watch His children?
There is nothing to console or express such a heart of God (shim jung). Try to imagine how would your heart be if you saw your children showing up in such a situation. This is all a result of what Lucifer, Satan, has done until now. We must think why God has endured and waited until now. Why has God waited? Why has God only watched? Why has God been so cruel and heartless? Why did God allow the miserable situation of His children to be displayed just like something to be seen in an exhibition? We must sympathize with this sorrowful history of misfortune.
In the thousands of years of long history, it is the history of the providence of restoration that God has awaited for His true child to appear to share Heavenly Father's name. Who will restore this history? Who will save this mankind? You must remember that God and True Parents, once again, must straighten out this tragedy. You must remember this deeply. With what kind of heart (shimjung) would you treat your children, when your physical children return to your bosom in such a condition? In front of the heart (shimjung), you must offer the service of repentance to God and True Parents. How would you do?
I decided today's title as "The Life on Earth That Leads to Hell." Please, I beg you, from now on, we must eradicate this secular life which leads us to Hell. We must come to the spiritual world after completely cleaning up our wrong life on earth. When you come to this place, there are no medicines or people who will treat your mistakes. This means you must treat every mistake on earth since there are medicines and hospitals. Don't think that there are medicines in front of God and True Parents.
There is nothing free in this place. Even my wife, my husband, my parents, my children would not express any generosity. No one can avoid the Heavenly Law. Would spring come when you shout out, "O, I don't like winter! Spring! Come quick!"? Just as this is the creation of God, we must make the right way of life on our own. Before the way that we have created, there is no method or medicine. We must solve the problem on our own.
In conclusion, because we come to the spiritual world as we lived wrongly on earth, in many aspects, we must live our daily life by reflecting and organizing. Who alive on the earth knows when one will go to the spiritual world? This is why you must live your life cleanly, arranging everything with the attitude that you will not feel any shame whenever you may go to heaven. The arrangement and the norm of the life are the teaching of the Principle. You must remember the fact that the spiritual world exists without any doubt, that your descendants will be punished if you commit sin, that God is alive. You must live your life by remembering: What would I bring before God?

2) Life on Earth Leading to the Kingdom of Heaven
God created human beings as His children, and wanted to live together with them in joy and happiness. Human beings are created as objects of joy before God. However, until now the lives of mankind have not been the object of joy before God, and the relationship of parents and children became lonely, solitary, and extremely sad in the life of God. This is the world neither God nor mankind desired. Therefore, imagine God's circumstance in His life until the dawning of the Completed Testament Age with the appearance of True Parents. It is not that God simply came until now by chance, but God waited for a long time overcoming the searing pain on flesh and bones.
After True Parents emerge, we must think what is our task. We were all ones who would deserve to take a train for hell. However, how fortunate we are to be born in this good era. If any choice was given to us to take a train either for hell or heaven, the train for heaven must have been full. This is why we cannot take either the train for heaven or hell as we wish. Our prosperous life and heavenly fortune came before us. We must deeply think how we could dare to be born in the age of True Parents, and how we could attend and love True Parents.
What more fortune our life could have since we can prevent ourselves from going to hell by simply following True Parents? As we attend True Parents, we often cannot discover that our life has the happiest value and the most fortune in the same sense as it is darkest just under the lamp. We must reflect whether or not we sometimes missed and dreamed about the brightly shinning light in the other's house in the distance. We must think and reflect whether or not we misjudged the life on earth as our eternal place although we must come to the spiritual world, the eternal place, after a short life on earth.
According to the directions of our lives, our houses are being built in heaven every day. However, my home in heaven is being built and destroyed, but that in hell has been rebuilt a number of times for it being so bored. Then, where would be my place to live in the spiritual world if my earthly life ends before my house in the spiritual world has begun to be built? If so, we will be a wandering spirit and wander from place to place. As we believe and attend True Parents, we must solemnly lower our heads before our internal attitude of our lives, and think and think about our attitude standing in front of God. If you feel something unpleasant, it is the sound of your conscience. So, ask your inner person. If you hear the sound of a defender who defends your feeling, you must cruelly hammer it down. You must shout out, "You, the defender who destroys us, leave us."
Let's build our house where we will live eternally beside God, where the entire creation will sing and dance together in a sunny spring of the Kingdom of Heaven. Let's build our eternal place on top of a hill where there is no anxiety but overflowing with laughter and happiness, where we can embrace and liberate our "ban" freely in the bosom of God whom we missed the most.

3) Relationship between God and Humans (Ancestor Relationship)
How joyful would it be if all mankind could stay in God's dwelling place after living on earth together? However, we cannot do anything about the Heavenly Law of God. When God created man, He created the human being as the most loving sons and daughters. But would God want to send some of His loving children to Heaven and the others to Hell? Wouldn't it be God's heart (shim jung) that He wants to bring and watch all loving children beside Him?
However, because of the wrong commencement of history, two locations and places for two owners came into being, and the law that God could not take part in came about. Therefore, inevitably, sorrow and darkness occupied the background of history. What can we do about it? Even God cannot know what to do about this law. That is why disease, war, and poverty arose and the spiritual world became dirty and complicated in the stream of immemorial history. So God could not help but to turn away from there.
Therefore, we human beings have sought the way through the teaching of religion in such complications and circumstances, and made an effort to listen to the voice of conscience in order to live properly. And we must know always and clearly that the relationship between God and Man is fate. We must understand God's parental heart (shim Jung) that He cannot interfere with His loving children who are living in suffering and difficulty. This is all because of Lucifer, Satan. It is because of the existence of the blood lineage of Satan who has acted as an owner in God's place.
Who can interfere with this? We must direct our attention to our mind and body clearly. We know these factors very well through the Divine Principle. We also learned through countless lectures on the spiritual world by True Parents. So all of you must practice what you have learned from the teaching of the Principle.
We, as children of God, must help God and True Parents. How can we save the numerous ancestors who cannot get out of hell? Are we going to wait until True Parents or God begins to act for us? True Parents gave us a great privilege, which is Tribal Messiahship. Shout out to God! Shout out loud and beg earnestly to God, saying, "God, please save our ancestors. Please save our ancestors who are suffering in hell." It will be Lucifer, Satan, who would give ear to your shouting more than anyone else.
If so, Lucifer would become painful. An outcry of liberation will echo from several places. At that time, God can accept His children unconditionally. Lonely God! Lonesome God! God will deeply embrace His children, though they are barefoot, even though they have a broken and crooked mouth, ear, and nose, even though they became bruised, and even though they are like defeated troops with double cranes returning from the battlefield. Our God and True Parents will say, "My children, my poor children! I missed you," and will console us with Their embrace, dress us, put us to sleep, and will keep patting us.
We, as children, must liberate God's lonely heart (shim jung). With our prayer, our cries will burst out echoing through hell and liberating hell. Then we can save our ancestors. In that time, because there will not be even one single person suffering in hell, we don't need to pray an unpleasant prayer. If there is such a person, please shout! Please shout confidently, "God, I don't have sin. God, I will not go to hell." All of us are born with the relationship of father and son in front of God and True Parents. Therefore, we must liberate parents. This can be accomplished only through our right life and prayer.

4) Treatment of All Disease
If human beings get disease, they become painful, difficult and troublesome both physically and spiritually. Thus, they must be treated both spiritually and physically. That is God's desire. For our happiness, the happiness of humankind, that disease must be treated without a doubt. How can it be treated? The origination of all disease is only one. The fundamental cause is sin. Therefore, we must clean up this sin. Through indemnification of our ancestors' sin, we have to treat this by analyzing what was the seed of sin, such as greed, envy and jealousy, and so forth.
If we pull out and examine the roots and buds of sin, then, disease will be attached to them. Furthermore, to treat it, we will experience difficulty by losing our properties. You will be the first to intuitively understand the cause of your disease. Why did it come about? We cannot avoid the indemnification of our ancestors; because it is connected to blood lineage, inevitably we must encounter it. There is no such a foolish person who encounters it by doing nothing because of an ancestor's sin. At first, we must pray for ancestors and carry on our right life and must become the Messiah in front of our ancestors. Modern medicine is what God blessed. So we have to treat all disease wisely, and through a compromising way. I earnestly desire you to come to God as mature believers, managing your wise life, happy life, without suffering disease in your earthly life.

4. Root Of Sin And The Path That Humankind Should Go
1) Root of Sin (Essence of Sin)
The original root of sin is the same as is revealed in the Divine Principle. The origin (essence) of sin I want to talk about today is what all humans have contracted. This is an extremely painful thing. What a feeling of mistreatment we have based on the fact that we were born with sin although we were created by God. God has been waiting until His beloved children return to their true position, coming not from a parental position, but from the situation of having had to live in a corner room because of being seized by a servant against His desire. We must remember that, with countless vicissitudes, God is our parent.
Now we must fundamentally be aware of each of these deadly pains and must live our lives with the faith that we will go directly in front of God by straightening out all these issues when we go to the spiritual world. This is the same as it is with the married life of a wife and husband. Don't live a separate life wherein a wife lives in Heaven and her husband lives in hell. You must live a married life in such a way that you would have the feeling that whoever went to Heaven first would wait, with a heart full of Jung sung, for the other to join them in a well-prepared, tidy house.
Since the root of our sin is what we received from Satan, we must live our lives looking into our true selves by receiving forgiveness and straightening ourselves in front of True Parents if there is any need. We must be freed in every circumstance, not only in the life of a couple, but in every horizontal human relationship as well. There is no one who wins over death. Those who receive the highest treatment in the highest position, those who, in their arrogance and haughtiness, impose or wield power over every man by ignoring them are not qualified to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. The essence of sin has nothing to do with True Love. The essence of sin is the way of self-centered thought; it is hatred rather than love; it is antagonism rather than hatred; furthermore, it is the mind that can commit murder.
We must know that God has not held any antagonism against all these, not even once, but has waited patiently. In front of every organization, company, and others, put myself within every person's heart and then judge. Put myself in such a position and frankly judge. In that position, see what is the score and accept it, even though it be cruel. By doing so, you must live your daily life by marking a "circle," a "triangle" and an "x." Then, score yourself on the last day of 365 days. You must count and find the total number of "circles," "triangles" and "x"'s. If your "x"'s are 70 percent, you must restart your life. If you come to be in such a situation, you must realize that you have no place in the Kingdom of Heaven and therefore must do your best to prepare one. Why are you so frantic for a 30 pyong (1 pyong = 3.954 sq. yds.), 40 pyong, or 50 pyong residential area, a decent size piece of land, and to have luxurious cars? Why are you so stingy about preparing 100 pyong for a castle in the eternal world? The visible world is a place through which we are simply passing by, so 20 pyong of area will be enough. Therefore, I think it is important for us to pour our entire energy into building a castle where we will live eternally.
What is sin? It is that humankind is living apart from God. We must separate ourselves externally from that which caused us to stray from God. We cannot help from being born with mistreatment. From now on, however, we must completely restore ourselves to the position as children of God centering on the content of all the teachings of True Parents. We must strongly maintain the position. We must become a strong rock that will not shake in any strong thunderstorm. Standing in the top position, let's shout out, let's cry out, "I have no relationship with sin. As a child of God, I will live pledging filial piety, loyalty, and virtue in front of True Parents. My life and my glory are all God's, and True Parents. . ." until we lose our voice. Then, we must live our daily lives carving this cry on the rock of our hearts every day until we lose our voice. By doing so, we must live humbly, heading toward the highest place by completely cutting off and rooting out any relationship with Satan.
We must cut out the root and the bud of sin on our own and, in that position, we must build our eternal home of rest where we can sing and dance by attending God and True Parents. Please remember that the path of cleansing the root of sin forever and ever must be prepared on the earth.

2) True Parents of Heaven and Earth
We, mankind, were born with the original element of sin. This we call the original sin. It is God who has patiently waited and waited for such a long period of time in order to cleanse this sin. Although God has patiently waited over the course of along period, He did not just wait blindly for it to pass. God had prepared the blood lineage of True Parents and sent True Parents to the earth to give rebirth to all mankind through the blood lineage. In the process, God engaged in a gruesome battle of bloodshed against Satan. Throughout countless vicissitudes against Satan, God protected the blood lineage of True Parents.
We don't realize that we are so fortunate to have been born in such a wonderful time period. We don't know the value of it. Think about what the heart (shim Jung) of God would be in sending our True Parents. Three hours of darkness when Jesus was on the cross and the periods of True Father's life in prison were ravaging themselves on God's heart (shim jung). Who in the world would understand such a heart? Think about the parental heart (shim Jung) of God in having to simply watch anxiously, without being able to do anything for His son when Satan was attacking True Father like the attack of a swarm of bees.
Imagine that your son is standing across the frozen Han River. In order to meet your son, you must walk over the frozen water. The ice is cracking here and there, and is even broken in pieces, but as the parent you must walk over it. How would your heart be in such a life and death situation, in such a crucible? God has been protecting True Parents by being patient, and with an even greater pain than that. Countless religious people, countless religious leaders have walked innumerable paths of suffering, striving to pioneer the path of goodness, to lead mankind to the path of deliverance from sin. Absolutely their suffering will not become meaningless. However, God alone is the only parent of mankind, and the creator.
God waits expectantly for all of us to live in one place by attending one parent. If Satan did not exist, the separation of religions would not have happened. All religious leaders and pioneers desire that we all love each other in the same place in front of God.
"True Parents of Heaven and Earth! Man mansei (ten thousand times more of ten thousand years: eternity) for Heaven and Earth!" We must be able to say, "We are so grateful that God has protected True Father's eighty years of life. We are so grateful that we were able to live our lives by holding onto True Father's eighty-year life." Now let's sing, dance, and run, embracing each other attending our eighty-year-old True Parents of Heaven and Earth for eternity. God, mansei! True Parents, man-sei! Our Unification Church members mansei! Entire mankind, mansei! We must pray that our True Parents of Heaven and Earth may have a long, healthy life. We must sing hallelujah when True Parents come to this world. We must attend True Parents well for the eternal reign, until the completion of the castle. We must attend well until all humankind is saved.
I felt a number of times that God did not know how to express His heart in front of True Father. The appearance of God not knowing how to express His gratitude toward His son for True Parents' suffering, but getting excited was very tearful and pitiable. We all must think about how to attend True Parents. How could you understand my situation in this world wherein I cannot see True Father's holy face no matter how widely I open my eyes?
However, it is the sincere request of Sang Hun Lee who came to this world first, to live a life of observance to God in the appearance of True Parents of Heaven and Earth doing their duty of filial piety in front of God. This is why I truly wish that we all must sincerely believe and attend True Parents and live happily together in this place. I wish we all can meet here where God dwells.
True Parents of Heaven and Earth, man mansei! Our Unification Church members, man mansei! Mankind of the world, man mansei!

3) The Life of Sang Hun Lee
Originally, my family was Confucianist. I benefited from a good environment in which I inherited an intellectual capacity from my parents. Therefore, I graduated from medical school and became a doctor of internal medicine. My original plan was to engage in analysis of and research on the human body. So at medical school I concentrated on the study of detailed parts of the human body, but it was the question of the existence of God which remained always in the bottom of my heart. What is the nature of the world after death to which all mankind is destined to go and what is the purpose and method of creation since we are told that God created man? These kinds of questions were very new and curious for me. I realized that the mentality of a man cannot be controlled. The queries on man's thought, intellect, ideology, and so forth were serious issues for me. It is possible to study the parts of the physical body since they are visible, but no matter how hard I thought and studied, I could not find the answer as to the nature of my inner person. These questions resulted in my having serious torments. Mentally, I eventually came to the point of not wanting to live because of the emptiness inside. Quite some time after that. I came to know Reverend Sun Myung Moon and studied the Divine Principle of our True Parents. My joy at that time was even greater than what I would have felt had I possessed the entire world.
The more I studied the Divine Principle and analyzed it closely, the more it became the source of enormous life elements and energy. After analyzing its various dimensions in more detail, I realized that it was an incredibly great truth. My life began to completely turn around from that moment. I couldn't help being surprised at the change in myself from only wanting to be buried to deeply analyzing this Divine Principle, putting all other desires away. As I analyzed the Principle, it seemed that every cell of my body became alive. With the hope that everybody might accept this Principle as soon as possible, and with the hope that this Principle would soon appear to the world as a good theory which could provide direction for the thought of countless numbers of intellectuals, I lived my earthly life analyzing and studying the Principle in its various aspects.
There is only one reason that I speak about such a title as "The Life of Sang Hun Lee" at this time. In my life there are only True Parents, both on earth and in the spiritual world. My only purpose is to testify to True Parents by gathering all of my life, my thought, my knowledge and my study. I am not an earthly person. All I want is to tell you this by borrowing one weak woman's hand and betting my life. What are we so afraid of in our lives? In the history of God's providence, there is no greater man than True Parents, and there is no more glorious man than True Parents. You are all seeing True Parents only with your physical eyes. When we see Rev. Sun Myung Moon in the spiritual world, all creation flutters and the light shines in every direction along with his every movement. So, we cannot see Rev. Sun Myung Moon surrounded by such light. When the wrinkled skin of his holy face moves, the light of blood rolls down in between the wrinkles. The light of blood is no different from that of Jesus on the Cross.
Because of the radiance emanating while embracing and loving mankind with a parental heart, many times it is difficult to see the face of surrounding people. Moreover, when Rev. Sun Myung Moon sighs, perhaps earthly people cannot hear his breathing sound, but there are many times that it resounds like thunder. This is the sound of his concern, anxiety and grief for mankind. How can this be expressed in words? Every moment when Rev. Sun Myung Moon moves, God, anxious that he may get hurt, places cushions of light, and covers him with resplendent light in every location where Rev. Sun Myung Moon speaks. It is very difficult for me to watch the scene because I was so moved by such love from God.
The reason that I am calling my Parent, whom I have been attending all my life, by his name, Rev. Sun Myung Moon, is because of my desire that not only our UC members, but all religious people and every intellectual person as well, study and analyze Rev. Sun Myung Moon, True Parents. The fact that you are attending the greatest man on earth with a physical body is an event of enormous significance that simply cannot be adequately expressed to you. However, it makes me, Sang Hun Lee, very painful and impatient as I realize the fact that there are many people who do not even know how to deal with the fact of this grand event. I don't have any results which I can be proud of during my earthly life, but I want to express once more to everyone the incredible fortune which I had in my life as a man-to encounter and attend the greatest man. Therefore, I truly ask you to study more and more deeply.
In this great time, if you arrive in this world not having known the real value of this greatest man in your life, you will experience embarrassment and pain. All I want is to help you to prevent this. Then, who is Rev. Sun Myung Moon? I want those who still ask from a far distance, "Are you the one who is to come?" to quickly come to a conclusion. I wish you would believe that True Parents are the True Parents of both the physical and the spiritual worlds, and the Messiah of humankind, so that you will not have regrets later.
Today, the reason that I am testifying about True Parents to you again is because one who has already completed his earthly life cannot borrow the strength of a person with a physical body all the time, and the chance to do so is such an incredible event. However, such an opportunity does not come often. Taking advantage of this opportunity, I want to make sure that you remember this fact one more time. "Every congregation of all other denominations! Are you still waiting for the Messiah to come on the clouds? Please, I ask you to broaden the range of your faith, and change the direction of your view of faith, so that we can meet together in the place of the children of God with a matured intellect."
March 20, 1999
4) God and True Parents
We all have been unable to see God. Then, can we see God when we come to the spiritual world? If He is the one that we human beings can see, He may not be God.
God is He whom we cannot see with our human eyes or touch. He is not a being who can be seen within the limit of human vision. God is the parent of all humankind, the creator of all things. If such a God can be determined and analyzed within human thinking, then we can conclude that any other great being could become God.
God is only God. My arrogance that I would be able to analyze God when I came to the Kingdom of Heaven completely collapsed into small pieces. If there is any one who would analyze God, he would be the most foolish one, and no different from an idiot. This effort, then, is no more than a waste of time. If any one could analyze God with their human brain, that person would have to be God.
I wish you would think deeply about the fact that God is everywhere, and that He is omnipotent and almighty, and give up on analyzing God. I think it is the duty of children to attend Him with the attitude of absolute obedience.
Then, who are True Parents? God desired to love and feel joy through the grandchildren and great-grandchildren generation after generation after creating humankind. However, because human history began from a criminal, the entire direction of history went wrong. For this reason, in order to straighten out this history, God waited for the right moment while sending countless historical beings. At this point, we must rethink Jesus' crucifixion and straighten out our thinking.
If Jesus had not been crucified, he would have become the parent of mankind. However, because Jesus was crucified, new parents must come to mankind. Otherwise, mankind has no way to be saved. Therefore, God has sent Rev. Sun Myung Moon, True Parents, to this earth and is having him give rebirth to humankind that has the wrong blood lineage.
Attending God, True Parents became the officiator of large weddings and married many people. By doing so, True Parents were rooting out the blood of the fall (crime) from humankind. This is the so-called Blessing of Mass Weddings. Since God gave Rev. Sun Myung Moon the qualification and the authority of the Messiah, we must all participate in this blessing and cleanse the root of original sin. The final destiny of history is the salvation of humankind, and the history of humankind is the history of providential restoration. Therefore, the one who can completely banish Satan, who has been acting as the owner until now in someone else's place, and leads mankind to live attending God as True Owner and True Parents, is this very Rev. Sun Myung Moon.
Therefore, Lucifer, the criminal of mankind, must be born again through True Parents, walk the path of redemption, and attend God from his original position. From now on, I wish that we can finally cleanse the evil history of sin through True Parents, and accept everything with the attitude of a new start. We must attend and follow Rev. Sun Myung Moon, the True Parents whom God has sent to the earth.
Only when we do so will the direction of reborn life be determined for us human beings, and we mankind will be able to stay in the eternal home in the Kingdom of Heaven in this spiritual world. I sincerely wish that you would clearly realize this. Practice True Love, and never have any regrets.
March 20, 1999
5) The Path that All Humankind Must Go
Humankind was created by God. However, for mankind, the parents who gave birth to us and the parents who raised us are different. The parents who raised humankind is the devil or Satan. Because of the fall, humankind was not able to treat and acknowledge God as their Parent, but lost the right to go forward in front of God on their own. Therefore, humankind must restore the relationship of father and son with God. To do so, humankind must return to the original position, for which it needs the Messiah. The Savior of humankind, the Messiah, is none other than the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, True Parents, who came on earth. Without going through the Messiah, humankind has no other way to go in front of God. In order to go to the place of Kingdom of Heaven in Heaven, humankind must be reborn. The Messiah received the authority to save humankind through the blessing from God. Therefore, all humankind must be reborn through the Messiah's blessing, and must live the life of believing and attending Him. This is the only way to connect the glorious situation to the spiritual world. The blessing of humankind is the blessing of God, the liberation of God, and the cleaning of God's history of Han.
This is the age of consummation.
The history of humankind has continued along without anyone revealing the fact that the history of humankind must be restored. But now, people must completely conclude the entire evil history of the sin of Satan, and must restore the history of humankind by attending God in the position of True Owner. When the original world is restored on earth, hell in the spiritual world will automatically disappear. Since there would be only citizens of the Kingdom of Heaven alive on earth, why would hell be needed in the eternal world? Only when we have the attitude of life that the final destination of our lives is not the earth, but the eternal Kingdom of Heaven, will we be restored from our old habit of life.
When the life of each individual can be acknowledged by God, the restoration of the individual, family, tribe, people, nation and world will conclude. When this happens, Satan will not be able to find any place to stand and his base will be completely destroyed. We would normally think that the eternal peace of humankind and the salvation of humankind are the goal of God and True Parents.
Now, we will experience with our own eyes that the evil history of sin will vanish since the time of Heaven's fortune is coming. Therefore, we must be wise people! Don't fail to keep your place in the grand line, but do fulfill the mission of pioneer.
That is our victory of restoration, the way of filial piety in front of God and the position of entering the place of the Kingdom of Heaven. I wish you would attend True Parents in one place and stand on the front line for the realization of the peace of humankind, which is also the desire of all people and of God.

6. Myself of Today
Yesterday and today, we always wear the clothes that are stained with evil and sin during our earthly life, but never think to change the clothes. This is because no one has taught us this fact. However, when we recognize the period and environment, we realize we are standing in a very fortunate position. We were born in the age of restoration, and now we know the entire secret of the cosmos to enable us to cleanse our stained selves.
Now we know the task that we must do and the direction we need to go. We even know that the invisible spiritual world exists. That is the place where you have never been; it is the unknown place from which you cannot return once you go. However, how much further can I reveal the fact that the spiritual world exists? Would it be alright if we just go straight? You must make sure that the direction is determined correctly.
I can say that this is a somewhat complicated message to understand since it explains in quite some detail about the spiritual world. However, what else could I do, as one who came here before you? Shouldn't it be the case that I should reveal the reality of this place to you and then pray and wait until you would directly seek and come to the bosom of God? Because my heart is burning with such desire, I am asking you once more. The way of filial piety to God and True Parents is to properly discover myself today and maintain myself. Don't expect that such a report as this will be given again sometime in the future.
Obviously, the spiritual world and physical world are two different worlds. The task of revealing the secrets of the spiritual world can be assigned to a particular person and at a particular time. Therefore, don't expect any more to come after this time. Spirit people are meant to live in the spiritual world, and earthly people are meant to live on the earth. Let's become a person of today who lives life as an original self in the eternal happy position, through remembering today's revealed facts deeply, holding tightly to them, and making them my own. I truly wish your life to be renewed by taking care of, polishing, and cleansing yourself to become an original self.

5. Lucifer's Apology
1) God's Request to Lucifer
The new Heaven and earth began in the history of grief and "han," and now the age for God to be able to sit in the position of True Parents in front of humanity is dawning. The beginning and the end have already been finalized. Already, every child of the entire Heaven and earth knows who you are. Lucifer, recall your original self and the position wherein you were unconditionally obeying God and rejoicing at the time of the first meeting in the Garden of Eden. Please return to that position. You are not qualified to conduct the conclusion of the evil history of sin which you have sowed. Your original self was a being created as only a messenger. You were not created to act as parents for the children of God. Various explanations are not necessary. Already the judgment has been made. So, your appearance wouldn't become cowardly in front of all humankind if you quietly show your final humble attitude.
There won't be another day of judgment for you. Since the final judgment has been made, just quietly return to your position. This is God's final request. It would be better for you to act even one second earlier. If your action takes place one second late, you will remain as the eternal cowardly one in front all of history, and the disastrous scene of your punishment will unfold miserably.
Quickly return to your original position. If you do so, God will quickly settle all the disease of evil and sin which you have spread, making such a mess. Go, go to your position. I am ordering you in the name of Jehovah, of ten thousand armies. Lucifer! Return to your position! Jehovah of ten thousand armies is requesting this of you and telling you for the last time.

2) From Lucifer to God
I am offering this to God.
God, I am very sorry.
How could I dare to ask for Your forgiveness? Although I knew that history would end some day, I wasn't able to see either the direction or my original position to which I must go. I was always anxious because there was no one who radically, formally made determination to lead me strongly. How could I dare to go to the position where I am told to go? I will return as I would carry the punishment given by God. What more could I say about the countless days that I sinned by ignoring God's long sigh although I saw it? God! God!
I am very sorry.

3) From Lucifer to True Parents
I am offering this to True Parents.
Since all people call you True Parents, I call you True Parents. I am very sorry that I gave you an extremely huge difficulty to straighten out the countless aspects of evil history of sin that I committed. What word would I have to tell you? Once, I, undeserving and selfish, desired to receive the blessing. I am very sorry for this. If it is possible, I ask for your generous punishment, as you are the parents of humankind. As I see the countless ways of evil and sin, the ways of indemnity, even with my eyes, I can see that the only way of my return is the way of bloody bruises.
However, if it is the last way of suffering to go to God and True Parents, I will follow obeying. True Parents, Parents of humankind, Lucifer is very sorry.
I am truly sorry.

4) From Lucifer to Humankind
I am offering this to all humankind.
This is Lucifer, the criminal of humankind. The devil Lucifer, who spread the blood lineage of original sin to humankind by acting as God, although he is not God, has no word he can say as the criminal in front of all humankind. From now on, when poverty, suffering, and disease disappear, and God's new Heaven and earth open, rather than poverty and disease, peace will come to all people in the world of love and dance.
I think I have no opportunity to even give my excuse in front of the history of suffering and war which caused you to suffer from disease because of me. Unconditionally, I am very sorry. I won't even offer an excuse before the fact that I betrayed countless members of humankind and religious people. I will return as Lucifer, wishing all humankind to be happy as children of God.
Criminal Lucifer of humankind
