하나님의 창조이상이 실현되는 시기
The Time in Which God’s Ideal of Creation Is Realized
2012 년 임진년 새해, 하나님의 사랑이 여러분 모두의 가정에 넘치길 기원합니다.
I pray that your families will be overflowing with God’s love in the new year of 2012, the year of the Black Dragon.
여러분도 아시다시피 2012년은 고대로부터 많은 예언서와 예언가들에 의해 말세(末世)로 예견되어 왔습니다. 그러나 통일교 창시자인 문선명 총재께서 밝힌 원리에 따르면 말세는 결코 지구와 인류의 종말을 뜻하는 것이 아닙니다.
As you know, the year 2012 has been foreseen as the end of days since ancient times by many books of prophesy and prophets. However, according to the Divine Principle revealed by the Rev. Sun Myung Moon, the end of days does not refer to the end of the earth and of all humankind. Read the rest of this entry »

FEBRUARY 07 2012 The following is the speech of International President Rev. Hyung Jin Moon to national leaders at the International Leadership Conference (ILC) opening plenary at the Cheon-Bok-Gung on January 22, 2012, the day before True God’s Day.
Rev. Hyung Jin Moon sported the popular Unification hoodie at the 2012 CARP Assembly.
I hope you like my sweatshirt. You may have seen this symbol somewhere. Because we are now chasing Father wherever he goes around the world, we basically live out of our car. We’re always packed, we’re always ready to go, whether on the boat, on the bay – wherever. It’s a very amazing experience.
A couple of days ago, Father asked me to explain the markings on this sweater. As you know, this is the symbol of the Principle. And when we manifest the Principle – give-and-take action, the Four Position Foundation, the three blessings – the purpose of creation is all here. On the right arm you will see a character that says Cheon-bu, which means True Father. On the left arm you will see a character that says Cheon-mo, which means True Mother.

April 17, 2011, Cheon Bok Gung, Yongsan Seoul Korea
Most of these sermons are either are transcribed from the simultaneous interpretation provided at Cheon Bok Gung or edited from the preliminary notes the interpreters use for reference. As such, they should not be considered a complete or definitive translation in whole or in part, and are not reliable enough to quote from authoritatively.
Brothers and Sisters, the title of today’s sermon is: “The Kingdom of God”. If we look at the words of Jesus we find that, in the Unificationist family, we often forget about Jesus. From the viewpoint of the Principle we should always remember that Jesus is the Lord and the son that God sent. As we all know, True Father has completed the mission of Jesus as the Lord at his Second Advent.
If you look at the Bible, Luke 17:20, where Jesus is speaking with the Pharisees, they ask Jesus: “When will the kingdom of God come?” and “How will it come?” Jesus replies: “The coming of the kingdom of God is not something that can be observed, nor will people say ‘Here it is. There it is;’ because the kingdom of God is in your midst.”
The actual Hebrew translation is that the kingdom of God is ‘next within us’ rather than inside my heart. If we first think why Jesus spoke like this, we can think: “Ah, my heart is the kingdom” but this is mistaken. Jesus spoke many words regarding the kingdom of God, regarding God’s heaven, but ultimately, where is the kingdom of God?
