Rev. Hyung Jin Moon’s Las Vegas Sermon, “Chambumonim, Og-mansei”

March 18, 2011

March 6, 2011, Las Vegas, Nevada

Please be seated. It’s very nice to be back in the States, but really it’s not about me.  I’m very grateful because over the last couple of days we’ve seen True Parents at their best.  Yesterday Father was amazing, wasn’t he?  Incredible.  One of the moments for me during that speech was when Father was speaking and shedding tears, and all of a sudden he had a nosebleed.

He just keeps pushing himself, at 92. It’s endless. When I saw that nosebleed, it reminded me of the love of Christ, that holy blood that was shed for our sins. It reminded me of his great love for humanity. He talked about it, of course, in his speech: about the tears that were shed, the blood that was shed for Heaven. I was very moved at that moment.

I’ve had the great blessing to be able to go to various countries over the last couple of months, starting from Korea, and then Japan, Hong Kong, and Kenya.  We have brothers and sisters all over the world who are sending their love to True Parents.

Today I want to share a couple of words with you before we go into our main practice.  That practice is simply: “Cham bu mo nim, og mansei.(참부모님 억 만세).”  You all know how to say, “Cham bu mo nim, og mansei.”  I want to suggest to you today that “Cham bu mo nim, og mansei” has amazing power because within that phrase is our entire faith: everything from true love to filial piety, to loyalty, to service, humility, gratitude, glory returned to God.  Everything is encapsulated in that tiny phrase.

Special Sermon by Kook Jin Nim: “Strong Korea”

March 18, 2011

February 27, 2011,  Cheon Bok Gung, Yongsan Seoul Korea

Sermon PPT Slidehttp://www.slideshare.net/tcelder/strong-korea-cbg-110227

Main Sermon:

(Greets everyone in Korean then switches to English)

(Showing slides)

This is on March 26, 2010. It is the Cheonan boat that was sunk. Forty-six sailors lost their lives. In November 2010, Yeongpyeong Island was bombed. Two Marines and two civilians were killed. The Chinese response to these attacks against the sovereignty of Korea was that both North and South Korea should calm down. They failed to acknowledge who was the aggressor and who was the victim. As a rising world power and a rising super power, it is very unfortunate that China is taking such an irresponsible position.  Of course, the US condemned the attacks against the Cheonan and Yeonpyeong Island, but you must understand that in these days America is facing a great deal of difficulties and challenges.

(Next slide) This graph shows the twin deficits of the US. This year the fiscal deficit is expected to be over 1.6 trillion dollars. That fiscal deficit is bigger than the entire GDP of Korea. Of course, America continues to run a very significant trade deficit as well.

(Next slide) This chart comes from the Congressional Budget Office. It shows US Federal Public Debt held from 1790 and projected out for 2035. The interesting point to recognize is that as of 2010, the US has the highest level of public debt since World War II. The Congressional Budget Office projection on the direction of US public debt, based on expected changes in US law, is that it is expected to exponentially increase.

The Meaning and Value of the Holy Spirit Healing Service

March 6, 2011

January 23, 2011,  Cheon Bok Gung, Yongsan Seoul Korea

Main Sermon:

Thank you for your prayer. Welcome (greetings in Japanese to various members). We want to welcome all of our Japanese brothers and sisters. We have, I think, five hundred brothers and sisters that are coming. I don’t know if they are all here yet, but that is why we started a little later today, so that they could all come in, at least. Oh, they are still coming in. Let’s give them a warm welcome everybody. Our brothers and sisters from Japan. (Japanese comment).

Before, as you realize, I will speak a little slower today so that they can translate. I have a tendency to speak fast; I will speak slower.

Today is a different kind of service; it is the Holy Spirit Healing Service. Today is really the service we were doing every day at Yeosu and continue to do every day here at night. Every day at 7:30 we are gathering that kind of energy and gathering the Chi energy and love for True Parents. And so before we begin … please keep coming in, yes. Before we begin, I want to give some basic explanations and, we have translation, yes? Okay, great. Thank you.

Ever Filling True Love

March 1, 2011

January 30, 2011,  Cheon Bok Gung, Yongsan Seoul Korea

Sermon:

Good afternoon, brothers and sisters,

Let’s manifest the Principle first. Give and receive action, four position foundation, may we inherit the true love of God, and glorify Heaven through my ascension. Aju.

As you noticed today, we are going to have a little different format than usual. You know, this week is a very important week, because it is God’s Day in the lunar calendar year, and True Parents’ birthday is also coming this week. So last week we did the Holy Spirit Healing service. We sent a lot of Chi energy to True Parents; and they definitely felt it. Father had a lot more energy the whole week, and we were able to send that feeling energy towards him. So during this week also, it is just as important for us to give True Parents energy, so that everything can go smoothly and well. And it is the heart of the children to want to care for their parents.

So today we are going to be going into the Holy Spirit Service, but first I’ll say a couple of words, and then we have a new section. And this one year section is very important. It is made for anyone who is leading this service. So right now we are training out hoonsanims and moksanims and normal members to be able to lead these services. But it is very important to center yourself before the service, and make sure you know that it is not about you when you are doing it. It doesn’t matter who is up here leading the service, whether it be a True Child, or anyone else, it doesn’t matter. We have to make sure that it is not about us when we are up here, and make it all about God and True Parents; So, that one section that we will go through today, you will notice it when we come to it.

Let me start with sharing a couple of words now, and then we will move into sending healing and energy towards True Parents. Their never-failing True Love. Let’s start with Ephesians 2:4 through 10:

“But because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions — it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ, and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of His grace, expressed in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace that you have been saved, through faith– and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God– not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Aju.
