Kingdom of God

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?

The International President’s Jeong Seong and his Ministry

October 6, 2011

September 4, 2011,  Cheon Bok Gung, Yongsan Seoul Korea

Sermon about Hyung-jin nim’s ministry, delivered by the Cheon Bok Gung’s main Hoon-sa nim (Korean Elder).  

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.

At this time I would like to deliver the sermon from Father’s selected words, volume 63 page 28. Let us read this together. “How much you have offered your best and how much jeong seong devotion and life you have invested is the question. That will determine the value and standard of the person”. Aju!

This is our first Sunday service in the month of September and today the title of my sermon is, “The International President’s Jeong Seong and his Ministry”. I pray that you can receive much from this content and that this will be a blessed time.

First, when I speak about the jeong seong, the devotion, and the ministry of our International President, my motivation for doing so is, that we are now at a time when we have to make a new start here at Cheon Bok Gung. Among our members of Cheon Bok Gung, there are some of you who joined after our International President started preparing for his ministry and before you learned about how he voluntarily offered jeong seong and training. So you may not know much about this.

True to My Parents We Live in the Joy and Glory

Hello brothers and sisters!

 Haven’t seen you for a while.  As you know from this week’s service, we are going to hold the Holy Spirit Healing Service (HS HS) in a slightly different way and for eight months now we have been offering Jeong Seong and going thru the eight stages of Jeong Seong together with the Hoonsanims and the ministers of Cheon Bok Gung and many of you have been offering HS HS from your homes and sending much energy and chi to our True Parents.  We have seen amazing works of the Holy Spirit.

 I think this grace is a very big gift and also this is evidence that the Holy Spirit is with us in this Unificationist family.  Every month we can receive a different feeling from the service but when we think about eight months before, it’s true that many people feel that we have entered into a new age and I also feel that.  If you look back, I think we can recall the message from the Holy Spirit and through God telling us, “Have hope. There is much to be done.”

 For eight months you have offered Jeong Seong, much Jeong Seong and I had a chance to serve and attend True Parents right next to them and I have witnessed much energy being received by our True Parents and Father and Mother feeling more happy and more filled with energy and chi in their daily lives. Everybody feels this.  Of course they are still pushing themselves and at the age of 93, Father should not lead such a strenuous life but in spite of that, the fact that He is still living in this way, this is possible because many, many members are offering Jeong Seong, offering devotions and our True Father is receiving much energy from all of you.
