When The Sun Sets


Don’t let a mistake be harnessed into permanency where the Lord our Heavenly Father must then make a judgment call upon you, whether as a servant or son or daughter. As we see in Genesis 15, Abram let a mistake pass through his notice. He allowed for the day to close upon his mistake. It was then that God could not take the defiled offering of the unhalved birds but had to redeem Abram’s descendants with 400 years of slavery.

As the sun was setting, Abram fell into a deep sleep…the LORD said to him, “Know for certain that for four hundred years your descendants…will be enslaved and mistreated there…You, however, will go to your ancestors in peace and be buried at a good old age.”

Genesis 15:12-15

This may be seen as a symbolic time period of trial when it comes to the modern day. Say, for instance, one has twenty years to gather God’s adopted children, the Christians, and bring them into the Heavenly Kingdom on Earth as it is in Heaven. Yet parallel to Abram failing to cut the dove and the young pigeon within the day, she commits the great mistake of failing to usher in one fervent sister of Jesus and her children within those twenty years. She selfishly builds a community while effectively rejecting that sister’s efforts to share the love and word of God. Soon, the community is established without the sister nor her family in the picture. Then this community that is built will be cursed by God just as Abram was the recipient of His great blessing and curse. It’s just an anecdotal parallel to Abram’s situation in Genesis 15.

God’s word in the New Testament Age clearly pertained to all besides just the Jews, according to Jesus. Now, in the Completed Testament Age it pertains to all who might take the name of True Parents in the Holy Blessing according to the indemnity of Jesus Christ at his first and second coming, according to Sun Myung Moon. Ignoring her insincere mistake upon the altar of God is her defiling of God’s innocence–not the fault of the neglected sister. Every dove belongs to God. Certainly, a man or woman like Abram will be punished, if not now then later, for allowing the sun to set upon her mistakes.
