Home Church

The Words Of Rev. Sun Myung Moon

Tribal Messiah

See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God's children now; it does not yet appear what we shall be, but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. And every one who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.

1 John 3:3

Your first step is to become true children, and then later the True Parents will elevate you into the position of parent. You must set the right condition and prove yourself worthy and qualified to inherit parenthood. Each one of you is a small-scale messiah and you must show to the world that you love God and mankind more than anyone else in history. You must create your own world microcosm because the entire world is too gigantic to deal with. God makes restoration easier by creating a small world of home church in which you will find your true individual, family, tribe, clan and everything. By loving that small world, you can say you have loved the entire world.

The Birth of Jesus and the Consummation of God's Will
12.24.78, Belvedere

The Messiah pays the debt, so all you have to do is harvest the fruit. Then the title of tribal messiah shall come to you. By using the same formula and tactics you will become a messiah. The only difference between me and you will be that I lived my entire life in a bloody fight, but you will achieve the goal by receiving welcome. Because I paid the price and destroyed the satanic power, you can be welcomed as you become a tribal messiah.

Cross Over the Boundary
6.1.80, Belvedere

Your home church area is a little world which represents the entire fallen world and history in miniature form. When you win your battle there, God will consider that you have won the entire battle and inherited my victorious tradition on the universal level. Your goal, then, is to become a tribal messiah to home church. When there are home messiahs, then tribal messiahs under the worldwide Messiah, all shall be accomplished and fulfilled.

The Completion of the Providence and Parents' Day
4.15.80, World Mission Center

If you work successfully in 360 homes where 12 nationalities are represented it is as if the world would welcome you. When you go back to your own country your people will welcome you. You yourself come in the position of messiah, not of the world, yet, but at clan level, to your own family and your own relatives.

Father Speaks to the Crusade
5.9.78, London

Just finishing elementary school takes six years of daily attendance. Do you think home church is comparable even to elementary school? It is the school for becoming a messiah. Think of how important it is. Even though you might attend it your entire life, you must give your heart and soul because you could not have any better school. Even though you have only 360 homes, God will treat your efforts there as though you had given them for the entire universe.

The Importance of Prayer
4.15.79, Belvedere

Home church is surrounded by a spiritual foundation. The Messiah is the person who brings the spiritual victory and spiritual heaven down to earth to create physical heaven. Since you are a middleman or bridge to transmit the Messiah's work to your home church, you are his ambassador, and therefore, when you fulfill your mission you become messiah to your own tribe.

Home Church and the Completion of the Kingdom of Heaven
1.1.79, World Mission Center

On the clan level, when the central family imparts good influence to the others, the clan level of messiah is fulfilled. When there is a central clan which is the subject of goodness within a society or nation, the national level of messiah is fulfilled. The same thing must happen on the level of world and cosmos.

Do we have our own nation within the Unification Church? We have achieved the clan level, but not yet the national level. At this time, we are in the process of elevating our level of messiah to the level of the nation. This is the role of home church. We are making the base of the tribal messiahship within America. All over the nation, there are clusters of tribes fulfilling this role. We are doing this in every nation of the world, so eventually one nation will emerge totally successful in the home church dispensation. At that point, the national level of messiah will be born. By the same manner, we will move on to the worldwide level. We are working on many levels at the same time -- individual, family, tribal -- with the goal of moving up to the national level in one country where the messiah can be accepted.

The Present Situation, Centering Upon the Will of God
5.23.82, Belvedere

By winning victory in the home church mission you are winning the position of parent and messiah, becoming first a tribal messiah, then a national messiah. The Unification Church is spearheading the messianic movement, proclaiming it everywhere in the world. At this time messiahs are going everywhere in the world.

The Completion Period for the Dispensation
11.12.78, Belvedere

The Unification Church is bound together by the father-son relationship, but our purpose is not to advance the well-being of the Church. We are here to accomplish something greater for the sake of the world and cosmos. I always teach you to sacrifice yourselves to help the nation and God, never to live for the prosperity of the Unification Church. if we truly practice this ideology then it has to become the central theme of the world. Then we can use the Unification Church as a ladder, going all the way to the top with the same principle. You are working toward being tribal messiahs, then national and world messiahs, all the way to God.

The Importance of Prayer
4.15.79, Belvedere

God wanted to create the Kingdom of Heaven in the garden of Eden by uniting three generations, with God as grandfather, Adam and Eve as father and mother, and their children. In the home church crusade you represent the Messiah, so you represent God. The home church children have their own natural parents, and when they are united with you, it resembles God's original intention for the garden of Eden. This is how we came to have the terminology of becoming a tribal messiah. Then God's dispensation can be consummated. The endless conflict between good and evil will end with this consummation.

Territory of Goodness
10.14.79, World Mission Center

The task before you is to become the tribal messiah. How incredible it is for you to become a messiah, especially on the national and world levels. Our mission is to restore the homeland.

Let Us Restore Our Homeland and Fatherland
1.14.79, Belvedere

How is achievement made in home church? On one side, God is putting all His focus on your home church work and on the other, Satan is trying to thwart you. However, Satan cannot stop you from achieving results. Never before in history has there been the chance for Satan to be completely eradicated from the clan level. Home church is your clan level of messiahship. As the messiah of your area, what is your qualification? Your only qualification is that you represent God's providence and dispensation in history.

In the position of the clan messiah, you stand upon all the indemnity of history and the True Parents. The clan messiah is the branch of the tree, which is the True Parents. As long as you are a part of the True Parents, resembling their nature and living within a give-and-take relationship with them, that small branch will grow.

Within your home church area, your roots will appear. Each house in the 360 homes will be one root. Perhaps the people living in each house of the 360 will try to uproot you from their homes. Even if they all get together and try to remove you, if you do not budge, it will be because you have secured the ground and your roots are firm. Even if the trunk of the tree breaks in half, as long as the roots remain in the ground the tree will stay alive.

Once the True Parents plant something in your area, no power can root it out. No power of Satan can damage that root. Someone can follow you and continue your work if you have to leave. God will automatically protect that root.

Your own roots are your ancestry in spirit world, and even if Satan tries to pull up those roots, he can never do it. Your branch is your physical clan on the earth. The roots of both the physical and spiritual worlds are in home church.

Let Us Protect Ourselves
5.1.82, Belvedere

You might die in the process of shedding tears and sweat, but don't worry; you will not lose, but will be in the highest heaven. In that case you can make you own second coming. Jesus was crucified as a tribal messiah and was not able to complete the entire dispensation, so he came once again. in the same way, if as a tribal messiah you are martyred, your second coming is guaranteed, and on earth the people who inherit your mission will continue home church. There is no way you can lose.

So far I have preached many times about home church, but now it has come to the ultimate level. When you hear this you have to become crazy about home church. Your position is like Jesus', that of a tribal messiah crying out in the wilderness. Just as God prepared John the Baptist to testify to Jesus, God will also send a John the Baptist ahead of you to testify about you. It is hidden now, but in your area there are people prepared, just as God prepared the nation of Israel.

Stony Path of Death
4.27.80, Belvedere

Until now, God and the Abel world have been on the defensive, and the world of Cain has been on the offensive. However, from this time forward it will be the other way around. For the first time in history on the world level, the Abel groups will become united with the parents' position, that is, True Parents and God.

After the Abel forces and the Parents become one, Cain's world will have no power. Jesus couldn't win the unity of his Cain and Abel tribes. However, you are inheriting the ability to bring Cain and Abel into unity on the tribal level; this is not because of anything you have done, but because of the accomplishments of the True Parents. Nonetheless, it is still legitimately yours.

Let Us Protect Ourselves
5.1.82, Belvedere

I am looking for one person: the champion of home church. Whoever consummates the home church dispensation shall truly be recognized as the tribal messiah and will issue invitations to Mother and me to come to the first completed home church on earth. I am looking forward to that home church and am anxious to see whether it will come in Japan, Korea, or America.

Home Church Is the Base of the Kingdom of Heaven
1.1.80, World Mission Center

When you go to your home church and get pushed down and pushed out, without any vacation, would you complain? There you will receive a certificate of tribal messiahship.

History of the Providence Through Restoration by Indemnity
2.10.81, World Mission Center

The time will come when there are so many people in the Unification Church that there won't be enough homes for everyone to have 360 homes. Then the extra people will have to go to Africa and find 360 homes there. if you don't do home church well then people won't welcome you in their homes and will look for someone better to be their messiah. They will kick you out and get a messiah who practices what I am teaching.

Stony Path of Death
4.27.80, Belvedere

Home church will make you a tribal messiah, but are you going out with a messiah's heart? Do you look for someone to help you and give you something, or do you feel that you are the messiah who will bring whatever your 360 homes need? You are going to home church to give, not receive.

The Sound of the Bell of the Mind
1.28.79, Belvedere

You are independent messiahs, and whatever you do is your own responsibility. You are to bring the Kingdom of Heaven in home church.
