Let Us Become the True Owners of Cheon Il Guk
FFWPU USA: Dr. Ki Hoon Kim, the Continental Chair of the Family Federation for World Peace and Unification (FFWPU North America), spoke at the Las Vegas Family Church on Sunday, December 14, 2014. He gave the following holiday message.
Today I want to talk about the motto that True Mother declared not only for this year of 2014 but for every year until 2020: “Let us become the true owners of Cheon Il Guk who practice true love in resemblance to our Creator, the Heavenly Parent!”
All Christians, whether they believe it’s the true date or not, celebrate Jesus’s birthday on December 25, but that date was decided by the Council of Nicaea, which took place hundreds of years after Jesus lived.
True Mother pointed out that Mary, the mother of Jesus, really had received God’s message that she would bear the Son of God. True Mother called the Christian pastors to return to Las Vegas, where, she said: “I would like to educate these Christian pastors in how to understand God, understand the mission of Jesus, and understand True Parents.” I am expecting that a very bold message will come from True Mother. When True Father came to America in 1971, he focused on Christianity and the Christian leadership because this country’s background was based on the spirit of Christianity.
Based on the motto that True Mother gave for this year, I decided to have this title, “Let Us Become the True Owner of Cheon Il Guk.” At the beginning of this year when True Mother gave this motto, she shared four points:
First: In our daily life, don’t talk or act without thinking of our Heavenly Parent.
Second: Let us testify to True Parents, which means witnessing.
Third: Let us be responsible in our mission.
And the fourth point is about having a revolutionary life. Let us all become be more creative.
When I study True Mother’s messages, I feel that these four points have been engraved on my heart. I would like to explain what kind of mindset or what kind of inspiration True Mother is trying to impart to each of us.
What is God’s purpose? From the first chapter of the Divine Principle, “The Principle of Creation,” we know that our Heavenly Parent’s purpose of creation was very simple. Let us build God’s Kingdom, which we call Cheon Il Guk, on earth and in heaven. Let us become one. Let us build one house in which all people come under the heart of the Heavenly Parent and the Messiah. This is the purpose of God’s creation.
What is the purpose of America? The Founding Fathers came here for religious freedom and to build a country centering on the Heavenly Parent. Their final goal was to build a country for the Kingdom of Heaven on earth, which we call Cheon Il Guk. Read More
