Father’s Words

Lord of the Second Advent

"In accordance with the laws of restoration through indemnity, the person representing perfected Adam had to face a situation of betrayal, even by God Himself. Only then could the walls that were raised in God’s heart be brought down. In this way, everyone was against me, and even God was standing on the other side, leaving me totally alone. Still, the spirit world could not be left as it was, in a whirlpool of chaos. God had to make the final decision. He proclaimed, 'The transition of the lineage, transition of the rights of ownership and transition of the realm of heart that Rev. Moon speaks of, are true.' I then had to return here, to this world, after receiving God’s seal as a victorious champion."

"What must someone do in order to become the Lord at the Second Advent? You need to go to the spirit world, reveal the principles concerning the relationships of all religions centering on Jesus, clarify everything about heaven and earth and their laws, and receive the approval of the spirit world. You have to proclaim these things on earth. This is something that has not been known even in the spirit world. Only God and Satan knew of this. After I had proclaimed all these things in the spirit world, strong opposition arose there. In that world, a time of chaos came about for forty days. Satan resisted by setting the condition of denying God. As a result, the spirit world was divided in half, with one half against me. In the end, this chaotic situation had to be resolved based on what God decided to be true. That is why the True Parent brings the spirit world into complete submission, receives God’s seal of approval and comes down to the earth."

"Women are Eve; they cannot decide on their own paths to follow. You want to keep my photograph and live day and night before me. You don’t want to go somewhere else and get married. Even after 100 years, when you are in the spirit world, you can call out "Father" and we can meet and discuss things and understand each other fully in the same way that I am able to communicate with heaven. Do you think you will not be able to communicate this way? I am trying to liberate you."

"The work of God is restoration, always in the opposite direction from His original loss. This means that God first needs to find His perfected Adam, and Adam who instead of betraying God will become one with God. And then Adam must restore his bride in the position of Eve. Therefore, the promise of the Lord of the Second Advent will be fulfilled. He is destined to come to earth as the Son of Man in the flesh. He comes as the third Adam. He will take a bride and thereby bring about the most joyful day of heavenly matrimony, referred to as 'the marriage supper of the Lamb' in the book of Revelation. He will fulfill the role of True Parents."

“Since humankind has received satanic blood, people cannot return to God on their own. So the Messiah must accomplish absolute restoration of the lineage, renewing the bloodline that was defiled by Satan. This transition must be made. This is why the Messiah must surely come.”

172-53, 1988.1.7

"There were three ages in history: the Old Testament Age, the New Testament Age, and the Completed Testament Age. Among these, what kind of an age was the Old Testament Age? It was the age of redemption of children through sacrificial offerings. It was a time preparation for the coming of God’s son. In the New Testament Age, Jesus became the offering for us to receive the parents. This is why, in the age of the Second Coming, we have been preparing to receive the parents by establishing the bride and bridegroom. The reason that I, having the name of the True Parent, have been suffering for forty years as the center of the Completed Testament Age, is to receive God on earth. This will lead to the oneness of God and humankind in love."

True Father's Heir & Successor

"There will always be a physical representative of the True Father here on earth, from one generation to another; there will be that axis on which the earth will turn. Therefore, all of you here on earth and all the people in the generations to come will be centered upon the same axis."

"After that registration is done, True Father will appoint his successor. That successor must be known to all the Unification Church, all the blessed couples and the True Parents' family. They must all unanimously accept him. Once that successor is determined, the law or constitution of the Heavenly Kingdom shall be laid down to guide all activities. The law will guide heavenly citizens here on earth and into the Kingdom of Heaven in heaven."

"Today, at this time, there must only be one line of authority. The center, centered on Korea or on the world, over the entire Unification Church will stretch out and become larger. From now, I can leave someone in charge of my work on my behalf. Currently, there is no one among our church members who surpasses Hyung Jin in his standard of faith or in any other way. Do you understand? I am appointing him."

"Father, people were unaware of the fact that when midnight comes after the passing of early evening, the shining hope of tomorrow that is the True Parent, the True Teacher, and the True King, the representative of the kingship of hope, and the authority of the heir to that kingship, is here. At this time of transition today, this occasion is one where they can inherit the authority as the representatives and heirs who can attend to everything on behalf of True Parents."

"God is the one King of Kings. There is only one set of True Parents. All families are the people who share a single lineage, and are the children of one heavenly kingdom. Moreover, the command center of cosmic peace and unity is the absolute and unique command center. Its representative and heir is Hyung Jin Moon. Anybody else [who claims such a position] would be a heretic and one who brings things to destruction. The above content is True Parents' proclamation."

"Hyung Jin is a mysterious man who can fit himself to any given atmosphere and introduce Heavenly Father. He can let family members feel something new, and he and his wife are a beautiful couple who can show the flower of profound minds anywhere in the world."

Mother’s Lineage and Responsibility

"Mother came from the lineage of the fallen archangel. To do this I had to go forward with absolute faith, absolute love and absolute obedience. Therefore, I came this far with that kind of belief and faith. Since she came from the fallen lineage, I had to go completely the opposite way of the universe. I had to deny everything."

"Mother also must have absolute faith, absolute love, absolute obedience. It is not centered on self. Absolute faith, absolute love, absolute obedience to Father. Therefore, if Mother, who is present here, has own thoughts and builds her own nest, it will become a big problem. Rev. Moon will not be tangled up in that. But if that inevitably happens, I will jump over that. I'll build a mountain again. Now, we entered the Completion Era and if Mother does not fulfill her responsibility, there are plenty of candidates."

"Mother must now perfect herself by June 16, 2013. Then she should return to her original position. When the mother and father attend God, they should lead a life in the position of a servant that can teach people the way of a servant in the unfallen world."

"Although I’m leaving and abandoning the United States, I’ve made teaching materials. They are Mother’s teaching materials, and your teaching materials. If Mother can’t do it, or has made mistakes, you have to be able to say, 'Mother, you have to repent. Unless you receive the Blessing again from me, there is no way for you to live.'"

“I raised up Mother, but now there is no Mother. There is no one in the position of Rev. Moon's wife. Mother is acting as she pleases. Whatever she wants, she does.”

July 16, 2012; Cheongshim World Peace Center, KoreaSpeech at 'Abel Women UN' Inauguration Assembly

"The substantial God/God incarnate attends to the God of Night. I put Mother in that position and she must attend to me as I did to the God of Night. She is like my physical body. Even if Mother goes up to that position (of the God of Day) she must know that there is the God of Night upon her. She, putting me on the top of the God of Day, must be able to attend to me as the God of Night. When it is done, everything is fully finished. If Mother does not know this, I will not go to that position."

"By having the Holy Wedding Ceremony of Perfected True Parents when I become 93 years old and mother becomes 70 years old, we will enter the era in which True Parents will go with all (the Blessed) families heading for a perfected heaven and earth. Our birthday next year will be for this wedding ceremony. Fallen parents (Adam and Eve), without accomplishing their responsibility, messed around with everything in heaven and earth, but by having the wedding ceremony when True Parents can proclaim their perfection, we need to re-establish the standard of liberating the nation centering on 36 couples, 72 couples, 124 couples, and 430 couples, and call all the Blessed families (to Korea)."

August 29, 2011; Cheon Jeong Gung, Korea
Hoon Dok Hae

Editor's note: On August 29, 2011, True Father spoke his words about the future “Perfection Level Blessing of True Parents” that was to take place on his birthday in 2012.

The day prior to this planned Holy Wedding of True Parents in early 2012, True Father canceled the wedding and gave Mother one more year to achieve the required level of unity with Father. Father passed (Sept. 3, 2012) into the spiritual world before his next birthday in 2013 and the final stage, the Holy Wedding Ceremony of Perfected True Parents (perfection stage wedding), never took place.

"God wasn't finished with His creation. Individual perfection of the creation wasn't done yet. The perfection of a couple wasn't done yet. These must be done."

Below are unofficial published notes by a Hoon Dok Hae session participant, a South Korean eyewitness and note taker who recorded the contents of the words of Rev. Sun Myung Moon as follows, from Hoon Dok Hae led by Rev. Moon on January 19, 2012, at Cheon Jeong Gung (Palace), South Korea.

As usual this day also after the HDH reading, True Father spoke. But what was unusual was that his talk was about True Mother. His words were frank and painful, filled with fire and regrets. Those present were embarrassed. Here were some of his points. 

  • "True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind" is not two as Father and Mother, but one. 
  • Mother is Father's platform. Just eating with and following Father around does not automatically make her True Mother.
  • Acting separately will cause doom and death. 
  • Those who do not respond to Father and just hang around Mother are villains. 
  • Do not brag about Anju [Mother's hometown] and the family name Han. If you do that you don't become True Mother.  
  • Mother is going her own way like a Dokkaebi (evil spirit) [demon]. She is not walking the same road as Father. 
  • You villains (True Children, executive aides, and church leaders [mentioned by name]) are following Mother and walking a different path than me. Villains! 
  • Anyone who follows Mother and thinks he doesn't need Father is a rootless Dokkaebi. 
  • Only Heavenly Father is with lonely Father. 
  • For Mother to say, "Don't listen to Father, listen to me," is more frightening than Lucifer. 
  • I am all alone now. I don't have any sons or daughters. Mother plays her own game. 
  • When Hyo Jin was alive he said to me, "Father, I feel sorry for you. Why is Mother not listening to you, and doing her own thing?" True Father proclaimed: “From this time on Mother has to absolutely obey Father." Then Father asked Mother who was sitting next to him to stand up and go in front of the table and face Father. Then True Father called four leaders by name [Jun Ho Seuk. Sun Jo Hwang, Jeong Lo Yoon, Hyol Yu Kim (Peter Kim)] to the front to make a line behind True Mother and made all raise hands including all Hoon Dok Hae participants to pledge absolute obedience. True Father repeatedly urged True Mother to answer, "예" (yes).He then asked everyone to raise their hands and clap to confirm they knew Father's will and seal this special ceremony.

Final note from the transcriber [note taker]: Because cameras and tape recorders were not allowed, I had to check with several who attended and have faithfully recorded what transpired as best I could until the ‘Weekly Planning and History Compilation Committee’ can provide a detailed record.

Editor's note: Shown above are the unofficial published notes by a South Korean Hoon Dok Hae participant and eyewitness. The content of the notes has been corroborated by a number of other participants and eyewitnesses. To date, the recorded video of this Hoon Dok Hae session has not been released by FFWPU (HSA-UWC). To absolutely verify the accuracy of these notes, Dr. Richard Panzer, Ph.D., has asked FFWPU publicly on August 8, 2016, to release the audio and video records from the January 19, 2012 Hoon Dok Hae meeting, as well as the audio and video records of all Hoon Dok Hae meetings for the last 4 years of True Father's life, from 2009 to 2012.

Rev. Sun Myung Moon's Words to Mr. Kamiyama

These are the words Rev. Sun Myung Moon spoke to Mr. Kamiyama on July 16, 2010 
on a boat during a fishing trip in the United States. July 16, 2010

Rev. Sun Myung Moon [SMM]: Nobody but I, understands the internal situation. If you guys deal with situations on your own terms – the result will only stay in the horizontal realm. Everything must be connected to God. That's why everything must be connected to me. However, nobody wants to do so, for example Hyun Jin Nim. So far only Kook Jin Nim and Hyung Jin Nim are connected to me. Other people are outsiders – they can't go to the inner circle.I'm not stupid – I have been controlling the providence in the world the whole time. Without me there is no way that we can connect the two results. That's something that you have to make clear. Even if they solve problems selfishly by themselves – it doesn't connect to the future world. Absolutely not. Who is the leader? True Father or his children? Where did the Divine Principle come from? Not Hyun Jin, not Kook jin or Hyung Jin. Kamiyama! Don't lose focus! You feel sorry for people, a father or grandfather. You have done things that you think were right in God's providence. This is the result. We have a serious problem. There is no difference in meaning of serving Father now, or 30 years ago. Isn't that right? It doesn't matter, if I have become 80 or 90. They said, "Father became senile, therefore we need to make the right decisions.” They ignore me and claim that their decisions are better than mine. It's ridiculous! Don't you feel ashamed Kamiyama?

Mr. Kamiyama [K]: I wish Hyun Jin Nim could return to Father... 

SMM: You should listen to what I said. 

K: I'm hoping Hyun Jin Nim could come back to you. 

SMM: Who is coming back where? 

K: Hyun Jin Nim could return to Father... 

SMM: He left a long time ago – many years ago. 

K: Yes. If I can understand the standpoint… 

SMM: Why? You don't stand in the position where you can understand my point of view. After spending many years in the church – you shouldn't follow another central figure. Is Father an immature person? Is he? 

K: I'm working hard; wishing Hyun Jin Nim would return. 

SMM: Wishing? Wishing? How many years have passed? 

K: Well, it has... 

SMM: It has been more than 10 years since they left. It's your immaturity. 

K: Well, if I could understand that clearly... 

Keep Reading →

SMM: If you could understand that more clearly...huh? You should ask me, if you don't understand. Without asking me - you work together with them? Why? Jin Man! Jin Hyo! What! Even if he [Rev. Kwak] is right, I could never ask for such a man's help. Absolutely not! Why are you working with such a man? 

K: I only wanted to bring Hyun Jin Nim back to you. 

SMM: Have you succeeded? You can't. How long a time do you need? You could have succeeded within a week. Why can't you do that? You follow them here and there; listening to them; one thing and another. There are so many lies that they are saying; claiming its essence is true; or Father approved this or that, etc. It's ridiculous! When did I ever bring two things? Have I lead you going here and there? I have been explaining with the Divine Principle – the Divine Principle itself: “Explanation of the Divine Principle”; “Exposition of the Divine Principle”; “Original Substance of the Divine Principle.” Don't you understand substance? Don't you understand God either? Don't you understand that there is a difference between God of Day and God of Night? 

What I'm teaching now is that Lucifer's father, Adam's father and the Creator are the same. Not two Gods. Do you understand what I'm talking about? How do you solve this problem? You can't explain cause and result. Why do they resent Father? Why do they hate Father? Do not reject me. Just join me and work with me – and you will be fixed in 3 days. Who created Lucifer? Different God than Adam's? Who created Adam? It's the same God! However, there are two different aspects of God, which are the God of Day and the God of Night. 

You don’t know how to explain these things. Nothing good will come out of being disloyal to Father. You should go through the training again - 'ODP.' I wouldn't like to write and explain the things that I already explain in the past. It's useless to love you in such a manner. I don't think about solving the problem that I already solved before. I never imagine doing so. I can't do that. Neither can God. Some people are just stuck in the past. They will eventually disappear automatically. I don't need to explain anything or educate them – they will just disappear. Have any of those who claimed that they were right, returned to me? None of them. Aren't you ashamed of yourself? (Let's do fishing now.)
