Why is true love so precious and important?

Why is true love so precious and important? It is because it is the means by which we can meet God. Just as human beings desire to meet God, God also wants to meet true human beings because of love. The love by which God can see, touch, and share with men and women at the same time, is the love by which men and women love each other. If anything other than love were to be recognized as the most valuable thing in the universe, men and women would fight each other to try to claim it for themselves. Once we realize that love is the highest value, however, we can strive to live for each other and become one with each other, sharing the happiness of possessing love together.

Loosing friends

It still hurts when I realize how far we are from each other with a friend who would be a real one.

You know, when you don’t even think of how great this what you have is, because you feel it is eternal and everything will be as it is.

And then it’s not.

Hard to find the point when the change starts to happen and then, all of a sudden, you know you are not there where you used to be. Not any more.

And it hurts, hurts a lot.

Where have the good days gone?

You never know. They are just gone.

And you feel the loneliness. The emptiness echoing.

And there is only God to talk.

God who has always been there waiting for you. And now, He is waiting for you to say a word. To say anything.

And there is nothing you can tell Him.

It happens you are empty. There is a void when you understand your real friend is just not that person whom you were thinking as a friend.

Still, God is there.

My friend has been silently waiting for me.

My friend, who has always been there for me. And it was me who became distant. The one who did not respond for His calling.

And still He is here for me.

God still wants to be my friend. Despite I abandoned Him. Despite how I thought we were good when we were not. Despite everything, God is still there.

God is still within.

What am I going to tell Him?

Where We Truly Meet God

For instance, let us say a father is building a big house. Neither is this father rich nor has he abundant house construction materials. However, he completes the construction after going through all kinds of difficulties; now he has a house everyone envies. On this great day, the father would reflect on his past and think of the difficulties he experienced. The happiness the father feels on this day would be in proportion to the degree of difficulties he had faced; the greater the difficulties, the greater the happiness he feels. His children, however, did not help their father during those hard times; they did not understand their father and distanced themselves from him instead. Now let us say that these children join their father to celebrate this great day together. How would the father treat his children? Would he say, “You are the children I love, so please join me in this celebration today?” On the contrary, he would reminisce on his sorrowful past upon seeing his children. Even if the children were to regret not having helped their father, we already know that they would cause the father much pain and sadness on that great day.

In order to complete the purpose of the entire providence, God, just like this father, immensely suffered and went through infinite pain as he advanced the providence. Unfortunately, the numerous people in the position of children did not collaborate with God. As God overcame hills of difficulties, one after another, he hoped that mankind would work with him. God needed companions.

God cannot surmount those hills without companions. God cannot go beyond a hill representing an individual cross without the companionship of people. In the same way, he cannot go over hills representing a family, a people, a national or a global cross without a companion. God, who is carrying the responsibility of the global cross, cannot go over this hill without a sacrificial substantial being that invests maximum effort with the determination to fulfil his or her filial duty toward God. We must therefore know that God has been hoping for sons and daughters who can work with him because of such a course of restoration.

Someday the purpose of restoration will conclude and God’s will for the providence will be realized. When that happens, the day God can truly feel happy will come. How would God feel when he ushers in this day? Not only would he look pathetic from the numerous hardships he had to go through but he would also look wretched and miserable from the pain he received as he suffered by bearing millions and trillions of crosses. You must understand that God had to go through this process in order to welcome this day.

If you are to join him on this day, you must be able to feel God’s heart-rending sorrow as he underwent hardship all throughout history in order to usher in this one day, to liberate all human beings and to enable human beings to have happy lives, even if you did not directly collaborate with God’s work.

You must ready your hearts to weep and be contrite in front of God who has ushered in this day. You should feel angry and repent saying, why didn’t I get to know you? How was I unaware of your worried heart?

If you truly repent about your past lives, a condition for God to sympathize with you may materialize. In other words, you should not join God on this great day if you do not have such a heart. That explains the Bible verse Matthew 7:21, “Not everyone who says to me, `Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only lie who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.”

We are heading forward in order to meet God. Everyone hopes to meet a God of joy; however, we should never forget that God had to go through all kinds of hardships and sorrow to appear as the God of joy.

What God did you attend as you followed the path toward the crucifixion? You should be able to do anything to share in God’s sorrow when he is sad, comfort him when he is lonely, lament over his misery, comfort him for the persecutions he suffered, and do everything to carry the cross along that path instead of God. If such sons and daughters exist, God will call them and set them up in front of the entire creation and the entire universe when this joyful day is ushered in. Instead of making this joyful day his, lie would want to make it into his children’s. We must be able to understand that this expresses God’s heart.

God has been looking for such sons and daughters for this reason and has been hoping for siblings, families, nations the world and the cosmos to fill with such children. As people who understand this and stand on the front-line of restoration work, we must know the immensity of the responsibility we carry. To become children that attend such a God, humanity must desire to attend God and we must treat all human beings as brothers and sisters. Become models in attending God and set up at least a condition by which humanity can comfort God and have the desire to dissolve God’s sadness. A person with those qualities is God’s son or God’s daughter.

There I’ll meet God

I’m planning
One day I’ll have
A perfect day-off
In the mountains
Where creeks meet
And ancient rocks are
Millions of green leaves
Unite in their differences
Mild breeze touches
The feathers of the songbirds
And the scent of the flowers
In a nearby meadow
Fills my nostrils
And cleans my lungs

I’m planning
My day-off there
And the Earth will resonate
Through my bare feet
I will feel life
As I breathe in and out

There I’ll meet God

What does God want from us?

Let me ask you this question: is it possible that God wants all of us to be happy?

Is there even a slight chance for this: each and every human who has ever been alive are to be a citizen of Heaven?

Or all this is a mere daydream, which has been floating for ever?

  • There are, who say, there is no God.
  • There are, who are firm, there is God. And they are willing even to kill for Him.
  • There are, who think, the people who believe in God, they have been brainwashed, and God is only for the weak, miserable, poor and unimaginative.
  • There are, who think, they are God. In their way of speak and deeds it seems to be true.

But what about God?

I mean, who is He really? What does He want us to do? Can there be anything what He needs from us?

I know a lot of decent, kind heart people, who read the scriptures of their faiths – some of them the Bible, some of them other ones. Interestingly, most of them can not answer these questions beyond dogmatic responses or stating nobody can know, that is the point of faith…

Jesus told us, we have one common root, Heavenly Father.

That makes us siblings – all around the world, way beyond any boundaries of denominations, race, culture or territories.

Jesus became a strong, yet kind, understanding and actively caring, loving sibling for each and every one of us, beyond even the time. We can all feel Him quite often, trying to encourage us to go to the right direction.

Certainly, there are plenty among the saints and sages, true sons and daughters who do the same.

Yet, our common excuses are mostly job related, or even family matters are on the top why not to be able to manifest anything. Since cursing, littering, lying, betraying, are so typical life-skills for us these days.

Carrying the burden of someone else, even our ‘enemy’ – well, that is so ridiculous in the 21st century, that there is almost nobody to step up and do the very same.

Sharing love and wealth, well, that is even crazier nowadays. Who would do that without expecting anything in return? Interestingly, young children normally do this. Yet, today this is not a common ‘life-skill’ for adults, isn’t it?

Being happy by other people’s happiness and success, not by their misfortune and misery, that would be part of the ideal. How could we sleep peacefully, while anybody is suffering, experiencing loss, hunger, unrighteousness! In an ideal state, we wouldn’t even be able to think of sleeping up until we actually helped our siblings in need.

If God wants us to be happy and in abundance, we should start with each other: loving, caring, acting – without expecting anything in return, looking for the sample paths in the Nature and the Messiah.

We Cannot Behold God Without Shedding Tears

The people who are experiencing the heart of God in their lives as He works amid the historical sorrow cannot behold God without shedding tears, no matter where they are. When you are aware of the will of God and are fighting to become His sons and daughters, if you have a comrade with whom you share the same cause, God will come there and shed tears.

Where is the source of God’s grief? It is inside us. At the same time it is inside this nation, this world and all things. We must bring an end to this and carry on the movement to restore the joy of God. The centre of life for us is experiencing the grief of God.

The problem is whether we have set the standard to mobilize the spirits of the spirit world, of which people are not aware, and have them bear witness. The spirit world is also demanding this. Because the spirit world is aware of the heart of God, if there are people on the earth who make such an appeal, then the spirit world will mobilize the spirits to help in the affairs of the earth in seeking to realize the ideology of the Kingdom of Heaven.

What is the reason that the spirits in the spirit world cannot come to this earth? It is because this earth is made up of barriers of lamentation. If the environment we dwell in is free of the conditions of lamentation, if through our bodies we can become free from the conditions of sorrow, and if we have entered the realm of peaceful rest in which we do not feel any fear when we are threatened by Satan, then God will help us. To cling to the people who mourn, worry and shed tears for the sake of the Father, Satan must stand in the same position. The forces of Satan will then be fundamentally dismantled.

For this reason, you must experience the sorrow of God, who has been guiding the providence for several thousand years. Taking responsibility for all of heaven and earth, you should be able to say, “Please take us as the sacrifice and make us into the bombs that can explode Satan! Please uproot the sorrow of God.” Jesus came with this kind of heart.

In the same way that Jesus could become the bomb that could produce the resurrection of new life and could perform the works of re- creation by walking the path of Golgotha, you must also produce these kinds of works. After experiencing the heart of God, who has been guiding the providence until now, you must become the people who have the determination and the resolution to offer your minds and bodies for the sake of this world. God is seeking these sons and daughters, one family, one nation and one world.

If you experience this heart of God in your daily life, you then will grieve infinitely over God. God immediately senses the presence of such people. Therefore, you must become such people. If you have failed to become thus, you then must bow down before such people.

Those who can bow down before such people must become the true sons and daughters. Only after that is done can you inherit the great work of the creation of the heavenly principles. Are there such sons and daughters on the earth? You have to become such people. You have to remember that if you fail to do so, you will become sinners who cannot dare to raise their heads before Heaven.

The ears through which you hear, the eyes with which you see, the mouths through which you speak and the feelings that you feel today exist for what purpose? They exist to fulfil the will of the heavenly principles. However, if they deviate from the will of the heavenly principles, they then will surely be confronted with the day of judgement. Since you have come to understand these facts, you must first judge yourself; after then judging the surrounding environment, you can step forward. In other words, the path of the cross is making the judgement upon yourself. You are to first judge your life and then judge your death. Only after passing through the day of resurrection in this manner can you finally become the true sons and daughters which Heaven can recognize.

Blessing Thoughts – 3

Heavenly Parent never waits to give you the blessing of blessings, He has already approached you more than a couple of times. Each time He could inherit a little bit of His abundant love in a form of healing, inspiration, fortune, encouragement, wisdom…

He would like to give you everything what He has ever had and will ever have. There is nothing He wants to keep for Himself. Whenever you are ready to change and act in accordance with the Universe, He gives you more and more.

Let Him Bless you!






To Be Able to Stand Before God

The person for which God wished after establishing the ideology of creation has been hoped for throughout history. Yet he has not been able to appear as a substantial being. Because God wished for the day of hope and a person who had that hope, He has been able to fight with endurance for the six- thousand-year historical course. Because His mind is strong, because He knows that the day will come when He will meet that person, Heaven has endured until now.

Jesus equipped himself with the grace of resurrection, yet after passing beyond the cross, he left this world after establishing the day of hope with his promise, “I will come again.” He was not able to boast of the day of hope at his resurrection. Since that time, longing for the day he promised to come again, Jesus has fought for two thousand years. Since Heaven walks this path, we today who are on this earth also must walk such a path. Furthermore, we must know that there is a history of toil in which Heaven has labored to establish the beings of original character created on this earth, our original selves. We must have the mind to feel concern about Heaven’s honor and dignity. We must know how to march forward singing of the historical day of hope. “I” am going to meet the Lord of Resurrection who comes in glory. I must have an unwavering standard for such a self, and we must make a determination and vow that we will keep to our journey no matter what, until the day we find the answer. Otherwise, we cannot deny that our life of faith has violated our true self, rather than otherwise.

Coming through the two-thousand-year historical course after Jesus, Heaven has endured, looking forward to the day of hope that is to come again. Considering that such has been the course of history, that I serve the family members and that I find the family members and give them counsel is not strange. In going forth in search of the day of receiving the central figure, the bridegroom, you must know that a decoration and ornament must be prepared as a bride. You must be able to shed tears before the Father, thanking Him and taking delight. The Heavenly World is vast and infinite. When we go forth to the position where we appeal to Heaven, deeply moved, thinking of the Infinite Being, Jesus will seek for us and welcome those of us who came seeking with hope. Such will be a time of spiritual experience for you, the time when you meet Jesus spiritually. For that reason, I wish you to be deeply imbued with a mind that wishes to meet him. The one who does not have that mind cannot find the second “I” that is to be raised in front of the Father. He cannot stand before the Father. This is the conclusion to which we come. We must know this clearly.
