- Special Thanksgiving Dinner Hosted by True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind
Nov. 25, 2021 - Cheonjeonggung 2nd floor Banquet Room
Did you enjoy the turkey dinner? (- Yes! [applause])
Perhaps some of you are wondering about my costume. I opened my closet, aware that I was going to meet you all after such a long time. But this tunic is old. It's an outfit I've been wearing since we lived in America. It glitters even when I'm sitting quietly. But if I move about a lot, it sparkles even more brightly.
The reason I am mentioning this is because I wanted to show all of you. I wanted to make it feel real. Earlier, President Hwang [Hwang Sun-jo, President of Sun Moon University] also talked about “creating the environment,” but Heavenly Parent wanted to establish on earth the dream for the creation of heaven and earth.
The 60-year history of our Unification Church has been a course through the wilderness. We could not establish ourselves, nor could we achieve firm settlement. However, through True Parents, a new nation began on Foundation Day: Cheon Il Guk. And the people who should be at the center of the nation called Cheon Il Guk are Heavenly Parent of course, True Parents, and the true children that are you, the blessed families.
True Parents have opened a new era, a new history, Cheon Il Guk, something that fallen people could never have dreamed of in 6,000 years. And they have received the blessing of qualifying as the people of Cheon Il Guk, which is what? Cheonbo families, right?
Yes. What did I say last time? Didn’t I say that the victorious Cheonbo family is “the eternal flower of Cheonbo that never withers”? In the era of the Asia-Pacific civilization, these flowers ride the strong current of Cheonbo, and countless Cheonbo flowers are blooming in the regions and nations of the world!
In order to create such an environment, there must be a central axis, mustn’t there? This nation that gave birth to True Parents must wake up. It must rise up. It must become a country that can serve the Heavenly Parent.
As Director Ahn Ho-yeol [Media and PR office] said earlier, shouldn't we be able to express what we can and should express? We must inform people about how to create the environment, should we not? I must show you, right? I said it just now! You should boldly inform people about True Parents!
Especially during this 9th year of Cheon Il Guk and the new 7-year course, you mustn't think and act in the same way as you did in the past. Although you may not know it, Heaven’s providence on earth….I am approaching the age of eighty, which is not a young age. Yet Heavenly Parent’s dream is to live on earth with true parents as they embrace their children in their arms. True Mother, the only begotten Daughter, is creating the environment in which that can be realized.
In 2023, I will dedicate the Cheon Il Sanctum [Temple] in Cheon Won Gung to our Heavenly Parent. By this I mean to say to you who are taking responsibility and carrying out your work at this time when Heaven is working with us in such a way: what are you hesitating over? Why are you hesitating? I am saying you must be bold.
You should know that when you move forward in unity with True Parents, with True Mother, the only begotten Daughter, miracles that you do not expect will arise ten-fold or a hundred-fold.
I am saying, please don't sit quietly. Even if you sit still, you are still in the position of having received the Blessing, which is different from the secular world. Yet if you act, how very brightly you will shine!
Now, you are in a new era, wearing new clothes and receiving such indescribable cosmic power from our Heavenly Parent—which no one has been able to experience. So what should you do?
Now there is no path other than to actively move forward. You have to step up to meet the goal. Do you understand? You will do that, won’t you? So I believe in you and I love you very, very much. Be strong.
