The Holy Bible, especially the Old
Testament portion, is very male dominant. God had to work through men. He doesn’t
exclude the importance of women, however. If Noah hadn’t had such a good wife
he probably would have been too broken to even build the ark to its end. He would
not have been able to obey God’s commands perfectly. In other words, Noah, had
good backup. (Genesis 7) What is a woman to do now, in the Completed Testament
Age? She is not a man. Ideally, a woman gets married to a man and they have
children in the covenant of God’s Holy Blessing that is beyond race, ideology,
and time. It must be truly relaxing for women, comparatively, to just standby
as husband does all the work. American women are not like that. We want to be
part of the action. We want to be involved! We want to taste the passion and
excitement that God wants to give to us!
The reality, however, is that Noah
and all men who are faithful and good like Noah are not the most exciting men
on planet earth. Not to mention, their purpose and dedication to God is an act
of service and daily routine. It requires not just brain of a womanly existence
but also the brawn of man; God needs man-power. God’s expectation for faithful
men really does take all their time, money, and strength. To love and obey God’s
command is truly impossible for any man unless he absolutely loves God one-hundred-percent.
As women born of God’s lineage and living completely in His grace, we see this
in our men. Somehow, I cannot help but think back to Jesus’s attitude for God’s
love—that God’s love is worth more than bread. (Luke 4:4) Jesus was the most
selfless man. His perfect love was so strong that bread itself seemed to follow
him around. He was not afraid to live for God.
Jesus, like Noah had been set
aside by His Father (not Zechariah or Joseph but the Heavenly Father) as the
special son. God took Jesus’s body and life here on earth as His very own. It
is hard to understand the rejection he faced by the Jews when he told them that
God is in Him and He in the Father unless we look at Sun Myung Moon. (John
10:34-39) Many so-called Christians rejected Him at His Second Coming too. It
is not everyone who is prepared to ride the winds. Even those of us who would
like to say that we are True Children of God are not as selfless and perfect in
love as we would like to be. When we see Jesus and True Father, we see in Him a
very perfect and flawless love that is more beautiful than the rose. It’s crazy
that Jesus craved God more than bread, that at his Second Coming, he lived and
breathed words to members day and night until his nineties when he died at the
behest of the fallen Hak Ja Han…
Women simply do not compare to these great men. We need men. We need things. We need bread. We need each other just as much as God needs us. The way we can stay involved in God’s Providence is to be faithful in everything we do and say. There simply is nothing else we can do! We are limited in Satan’s fallen kingdoms of this earth. Should we get bored to death with our path as the faithful Queens of the Lord we cannot turn around and delight in evil as did the Han Harlot of modern-day Babylon by killing off her husband’s oxygen supply whilst he lay in the hospital just to breathe. We just have to pray to the Lord to provide us with profitable engagement instead! Ideas will come to us. Most American women know that God’s law is not limited to men when He speaks about men. (Psalm 32:6) We birth mankind, after all. His laws apply to us too. We stand in the image of His Holy Spirit with True Father. They are the Kings in His image. God makes us who we are. It is our God given mission to establish His Kingdom of Heaven here on this Earth. We simply cannot help but bow our heads to God’s absolute Authority as the King of Kings.

God’s word is in fact, the first building block of knowledge. Ancient quests for eternal life and spiritual enlightenment have all taken form of religion. In each religion is a warrior’s code. The Holy Bible provides every necessary tool for us to keep our minds sharp and our faith rustless.
God’s word is the sword that we only hope to carry in its beautiful fullness. It takes years and hundreds of hours of devotion to study. Everyday, children must awaken with their parents and have a chance to deeply and chronologically, in their own lives, relate with the word of God. Parents, especially mothers, have this divine duty to educate their children without frustration but with a love of learning, dedication, sincerity, and compassion. Our souls must be strong enough to handle the fire of God’s word day in and day out. Even if our husbands are gone on business for days or months at a time.
It is not difficult for a child to sit for one hour a day to hear his mother read God’s holy word. No, in fact, every child gains something from Hoon Dok Hae: Daily Scripture Reading gives form and distinction to their life character. Children are capable of watching TV for three-hours straight before they get restless. It is the sincere, compassionate, dutiful, and dedicated mother who will unfailingly wear her robes as a providential teacher to create the daily perfect environment for her children to attribute their time—one hour a day—to the greeting and spoken substance of God’s word. Mothers should never gossip but only speak in truth.
In the tradition of the Messiah’s 5AM Hoon Dok Hae readings, soon, children begin to develop strength in God’s faith. We shall not neglect the Princes and Princesses of Heavenly Father here on this earth even if fallen parents have done worse to us. Everyday, our swords are whet upon the whetstone and oiled before sheathing to prevent decay and rust. So too, our minds must be sharpened against God’s word. His absolute love, life and lineage covers our spirits in oil. Daily scripture readings provide health in both exercise and nutrition to our souls so that our own faith in God may never rust.
The Kingdom of Heaven is not just for the Korean people. When you join the Moonies you may marry a Korean. It doesn’t mean that you are one! When I go down to a black Baptist church in New York City that doesn’t make me black. God does not judge His children based on race.
Look at the life of Robert Earl Jones. He worked in theater and put himself to many important projects to showcase African American life only to be blacklisted as un-American by the House Un-American Activities Committee in 1950. (Andrews) Understandably the House Un-American Activities Committee were under a spell called racism. Satan used this group of people to harm the notable theatrical achievements of Mr. Jones. He was simply a productive American man, nothing un-American there! Later, the U.S. National Black Theatre Festival redeemed Robert Earl Jones with a lifetime achievement award. As such, any objectified standard based on Satanic understanding of racial superiority is not an absolute measure and thus has nothing to do with God.
God Himself is absolute! When we true children of God see each other, we don’t really think about race. So, this sister is half Japanese with freckles and an afro. OK, so this brother is as tall as a giraffe but has asian eyes and glasses. It really doesn’t matter! Generally the Second Generation of the Unification Church just have fun playing frizbee or literally climbing trees together. Now that we are older the secular world bores us to death.
Any objectified standard based on Satanic understanding of racial superiority is not an absolute measure and thus has nothing to do with God.
The encumbrances of the black racial pride movement is not only filled with love and appreciation for the African American race but also full of hatred towards non-black and folks who really don’t know anything about people like Robert Earl Jones. Reverend Sun Myung Moon never made one race superior over another in his quest to identify the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth in His lifetime. He greatly appreciated Korean familial culture and linguistic methods of respect and love in that tradition and language. He has even said many times in front of me during morning scripture readings that he absolutely hates English because it lacks distinction in approaching another with the proper form of love.
Again, God does not judge you by your race but by the words that come out of your mouth, as Jesus once said.
We can discern two broad courses in the search for solutions to the fundamental questions of human life. In the first, people have searched within the resultant, material world. Those who walk this path, believing it to be the supreme way, kneel before the glories of highly developed science. They take pride in its omnipotence and the material comforts it provides. Nevertheless, can we enjoy full happiness founded only upon external conditions that satisfy the flesh? The advance of science may create a comfortable social environment in which we can enjoy abundant wealth and prosperity, but can that alone truly gratify the spiritual desires of the inner self?” (Divine Principle, p. 3, para 2)
Spiritual desires evoke intelligence freedom love and happiness. The desire to be fully alive yet completely at peace should not have to be parceled away into separate components. The thrill of travelling fast is not separate from the calm of the deliberate driver who steps on the gas. Internal joy must be manifested externally.
The beautiful landscape of Glasgow, Scotland captured by Sandy Carson portrays the inner longing for adventure and good old-fashioned comradire of Ian and his mates on a biking trip through the West Highland Way. The bikers enjoy the sparse bothies and cold nights as they live to testify to their humanity. Ian admits after he describes his pure cute delight of zipping down a slick rocky road on his bicycle, “Sometimes the stones we find in Scotland are the ones between our own ears.” Fortunately, his zeal for the journey is met with success at the Isle of Skye. His internal objective has been met with a positive physical completion and that gives Ian a deeper appreciation for this expedition in the raw.
Physical happiness and internal joy are not meant to be separate. God and humanity are also not supposed to be divided because God created Adam and Eve as his children who are his body. God is not to be separate from love when He is love. Every love should belong to God. Since there is a lot of love that results in evil it can be concluded that God can only be united with love in His domain and not with love in Satan’s domain. It is important to know and understand Jesus Christ at his Second Coming in Sun Myung Moon.
