Lost Love

Who is gonna win
We’ve been in this fight
So long I can’t remember
Just for the sleepless nights

We’ve been avoiding
The facts and everything
Trying like always
Accomplishing nothing

We could have waited
But I can see it now
Anything just happened
Showed the truth about us

In this realm
There is only lost love

Where is the direction

Where is the direction
I feel I’m lost
What is the way
I’ve forgotten

I was supposed to win
Every battle
Now I’m drifting
Through the time

Sometimes I wish
I knew
How to undo all
I’ve misdone

It’s not like that
I’m crying
I’m too stubborn
To admit

Where is my game
Playing
To know is all
I’ve ever wanted

I wonder if the flowers
Will dry out again

God’s and Jesus’ Hope for Humanity

You know very well that fallen humanity is longing for the dawning of the glorious day that is their hope and ideal. You have to understand that God also has been toiling for the long 6,000-year time span to find this one day. Jesus and the Holy Spirit also have been exerting themselves to repeat the battles for a time span of 2,000 long years. Furthermore, the countless believers who are worshipping Heaven have also been crossing the ridge of infinite sacrifice to find this one day.

This ridge must be crossed over, even if we die hundreds and thousands of times in the process. We must feel to our bones that to cross over this ridge, human beings were not the only ones who were mobilized. Many religious groups and many founders of religions in the spirit world, even the Holy Trinity, have been mobilized for this effort.

To manifest that one day, God has been enduring for 6,000 years. Human beings have persevered through many sufferings and adverse situations to find the new hope, the new guiding ideology.

Because God created the world with a purpose, the created things must unite with that will of God. Therefore, if we humans who must realize the will of God cannot establish the one day that Heaven and Earth can rejoice over, then all the work of God and human beings up to now will have no meaning.

Jesus Christ was the person who came to the Earth to newly introduce this day of hope to God and human beings. We human beings do not have any power or resource that can enable us to accomplish the will that God plans to fulfil. Therefore, we are following Jesus Christ, who came as the mediator, to attain that kind of power and resource.

What did Jesus desire after he came to the Earth? It was to establish through his life the one day of hope that humanity seeks, establishing heavenly principles and human ethics on this Earth and to spread the gospel of God to humanity. However, because of the betrayal of the Jewish people at that time, Jesus left without having laid the victorious foundation for the fulfilment of the will before God, human beings or before all things.

The Israelite people were living in the time and environment in which they could attend Jesus as the Lord of the highest glory, the master of all peoples. They could have taken pride in that. Although they were blessed with heavenly grace, because they could not cope with that grace, the victorious foundation that God planned to lay could not be secured on Earth.

As a result, during his work in the 2,000 long years since the ordeal of the cross until today, what Jesus wanted was to return to this Earth and fulfil the will that he had offered some thirty-odd years of his life to fulfil. He wanted to establish the one day of the glory of God, the glory of himself and the Holy Spirit, and the glory of all people.

For the human beings then who have the fate to usher in this day and pass through the end of history, the problem is with what attitude they will meet the day of glory that will emerge universally in the last days. This is the day of new glory that God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit and humanity all want.

The Will of God Toward Adam and Eve

You know very well that when God was creating all things of Heaven and earth, He began with the intention of finding eternal, peaceful rest in the created world. However, you also know well that this foundation God created was handed over to Satan because of the fall of man.

 

Consequently, although a long period of 6,000 years has passed, you must clearly understand that in not even one small corner of this earth has a nest, a place of rest, been secured. You have to fathom the aching heart of God that came into existence because of this.

 

What did God use then as the basis to create all things? He began to create all things through the eternal and unique words of truth. The purpose of God’s creation of Adam and Eve was His hope that they would perfect the purpose of those words and become the substantial bodies in which He could substantially dwell. Furthermore, when God blew in the breath of life, He tried to create a place of rest in their minds by dwelling there as the eternal subject of life. God created Adam and Eve after establishing this great purpose of the heavenly principles.

 

To put it another way, after creating Adam and Eve, God tried to establish the laws of life in the Kingdom of Heaven with words. Through their bodies, He tried to form the altar in which He could personally dwell. In their minds, God tried to build the holy temple where He could directly settle down.

 

However, the laws of the heavenly principles, which can act on behalf of the words of truth, also disappeared from human beings due to the fall of Adam. Adam was created as the body of God. When he fell, the temple in which God could live also disappeared from the human world. The basis of the mind where the invisible God could dwell, sitting on the eternal throne as the substantial hero, also disappeared.

 

The laws which represent the words, the ideology of creation and the body (the holy temple of all things) all went out of line with the original will due to the fall, so did the mind that can represent the holy of the holies in the invisible world. The sorrow of God began from there. Therefore, the minds of men, who were created for the sake of Heaven, also became sorrowful. The body that must relate with that mind also became sorrowful. The result was that the laws which represent the words of truth, based upon which the mind and body could move, also disappeared from human beings.

 

When we examine the standard and content of the basic principles of Heaven, where, among the innumerable people on this earth, would the laws of the words of truth that Heaven is seeking emerge? Where would the substantial temple, where God can dwell, emerge among those who were born of the sinful lineage due to the fall? Where on this earth would the temple that will become the holy of the holies, where God can dwell, instead of the infinite invisible world, emerge? Countless people throughout the course of history have tried to solve these things. Today, in this hour, you must realize that countless prophets and patriots have walked through a course of shedding blood and tears while offering many sacrifices, all to accomplish this purpose.

 

Therefore, there must now appear on this earth the person who possesses the words that can be considered the best in Heaven and on earth. A person must appear who can build the substantial temple of the invisible God to bring Him joy and give Him support. He must possess the cosmic value that represents Heaven and earth. The basis of one power which can represent the spirit world and the throne of the Father, which can also attain the substantial ideology to be able to move the world of creation, is the hope of God, the hope of humanity and the hope of all people of faith who must receive salvation today.

 

What have we humans lost? Looking at it centring on ourselves, we have lost the laws of the words based upon which we can stand before Heaven. We have lost our bodies where God can dwell and the temple of the mind that can represent the centre of the throne of eternal life. Similarly, because people have lost all right of possession, they are endlessly struggling in search of something. Consequently, today you must consider the search for the words of God that can represent the heavenly principles as your own hope. Today and tomorrow, you must dash forward at full speed.

SMM Quotes – 229

“Even when the entire world is thrown into confusion, if your love does not change, or if you choose the path of loving others for their sake, then you can always be in control of any situation. Nothing can stand in your way.“ – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

Magic child

I was standing alone
in the doorway of hope
we’d been fighting so hard
to come see it all along

 

The beautiful times
of all the preparation
the wonderful magic
during the expectation

 

You made me happy and trusting
in the whole new future
my life was reconstructed
and I became so sure

 

That the only thing can happen
is joyous and amazing
that everything will turn
into forever winning

 

I was right, I know I was right
the best moments of being alive

 

All of a sudden the time became frozen
I still remember the heartbeats were broken
I started to lose everything in front of my eyes
Just like in a movie, I’m seeing everything in daylight

 

The tiles were reflecting the fading sunshine
the abandoned corridor echoed my (shivering) cry
as I was trying to pray and asking our God
to take me instead and give you the life

 

The longest prayer I had at a fragmented hour
I was unable to talk but my screams were loud
and there wasn’t any answer
just a reel of my past

 

Before you came to alive
to see this world
before you came to bless
and change this world
I pledged to our Father
who lives in the skies
trading my old self
for giving you new life

 

God has saved you
you are a miracle child
there wasn’t any chance
yet you’re here, alive

 

Everyday I leave you
to help this world
I’m doing ’cause I’ve promised
always to do better

 

I’ll never want to have
a relaxing night
until Heaven on Earth
is not realized

 

God didn’t take my life
to trade it for yours
I offered my wrongs
and I became better for good

 

It is still hard to breathe
when I recall those moments
My heart is aching
I’m paralysed by the what ifs

 

I love you my son
And I would do it again
to have you be born
and let you be

 

You are a magic child
The best ever could happen
This world is more complete
and Blessed by your presence

 

Before you came to alive
to see this world
before you came to bless
and change this world
I pledged to our Father
who lives in the skies
trading my old self
for giving you the life

Quote

“Heaven is not some place; it is within my restored mind and body. Thus both Heaven and Hell are within yourself. You are the traffic policeman and can command yourself to go to heaven or to go to hell. This is a very dangerous job in a way, because you have to deal with a lot of force, power, and traffic coming at you. If you don’t direct well, the world and yourself can go to pieces.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

SMM Quotes – 227

Quote

“A man and a woman can be centred on true love for more that a thousand years and beyond, yet the energy of their love never drops. True love operates upon the principle that the more you love, the greater your desire to give becomes. When this love fills up the universe, all created beings find their eternal place of existence.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon

What God Expects From America

America has been blessed for the last 200 years simply because America’s original settlers, the Pilgrim fathers, came for the sake of God. They wanted to create God’s Kingdom.

However, America is selfish in wanting to protect only the white people’s interests. Americans think, “We don’t want the people of all those different colours of skin coming to this country. They are taking away our jobs, our fortunes, and our future.” This is wrong thinking because this nation does not belong to the white people. Who were the original landlords of this country? The First Nation People. So white people are actually the guests of this country. The guests came into the country and kicked the hosts out. But still God blessed the white people and allowed them to prosper in this country, while the Indians were sacrificed. Why? Because when God looked at the Pilgrims and the early settlers, He saw that these white people were a different kind of white people. They were here sacrificially trying to build a nation under God and trying to offer hope and inspiration to the rest of the world. God allowed the white people to prosper for 200 years because He knew they had the capacity to help the rest of the world. However, unless white people serve the greater purpose of God, they no longer have any justification to claim ownership of this country. God always expected this nation to be a God-centred nation. America should become the ideal society, expounding true love and going out to help the entire world.

But today, as American people do business with the rest of the world, are they doing the will of God? Are they committing themselves completely for the sake of other countries? American people should be saying, “Even if we lose all of America, we’d rather give to benefit the entire world.” If America did that, it would never perish. But America has alienated the rest of the world. Why? Because this country lives selfishly and tries to win benefit for itself, while at the same time it is spreading immorality throughout the world. If Americans truly worked unselfishly and committed every ounce of their energy and every drop of their blood and sweat for the sake of the world, then the entire world would line up right behind America. There would never be such a slogan as “Yankee Go Home!”

America has been known as the melting pot, a land where the oppressed people of all nations can live together peaceably. But today in this country, there is more division among races and nationalities than ever before. More and more, individualism prevails. How can true love survive in such an environment? This country cannot prosper with this attitude.

“Everything must be judged according to the standard of true love. Conflict within a family does not occur because there is not enough food to eat, but rather from problems of love.” – Reverend Sun Myung Moon
