I hope you’ve had a great week so far. Have you checked out my youtube channel? I’ve been busy giving you a tour of my GARDEN, so, check it out! Click Here. My painting this week was inspired by John 19:12.
– He gave his whole life, every drop of blood and energy to God when True Father was alive
– With his pennies earned he was able to give me everything I needed and wanted!
– He was happy when I was happy.
– He never abused my mother! Not even once.
– He could not control my mother and she beat me. Yes she did. Yet she loves me too.
– My parents respected and honored the Holy Blessing of God and they loved me very much…too much stress, and confusion, loneliness, and exclusion came along with the job…perhaps, and that made it very difficult for all the wonderful things but they are still married. According to Hyung Jin Moon they are fallen because of HAK JA HAN (!!!!!!); accordingly, I have said that my father is a coward for not standing up for True Father’s word posthumously. Yet it is undeniable that this man, Michael J. Chapman has lived his whole entire life for the sake of God’s Kingdom Come and His Second Coming of Jesus in Sun Myung Moon and the Heavenly Establishment of True Parents. He is a saint in the name of JESUS!
– I am greatly hurt by the division in this church
– My dad is Sun Myung Moon’s servant, best friend, and son of God.
– I love him very much. With all my heart!!!
“Ye that love the Lord, hate evil: he preserveth the souls of his saints; he delivereth them out of the hand of the wicked.” Psalm 97:10The Bible Promise Book
God is the intangible invisible eternal absolute and unique Heavenly Father who has given us an overabundance of such gifts that resemble Him. We will never see another white rhino because it is specific to its DNA that should not be confused in human laboratories with those of other animals. God has created this unique species which has now, in this century, gone extinct. Perhaps, the DNA of the white rhinoceros may be cloned into regeneration if our scientists can trudge away from their fallen minds when it comes to DNA manipulation/experimentation. We must adhere to God with absolute faith, absolute love, and absolute obedience as you cannot have one characteristic without the other.
Our gratitude to God is for the favors that He has already given. We are not to thank God for the favors which he keeps to Himself! We know Him for His Blessings, do we not? He has given us His love, life, and lineage. If His favor is not found in our lives it is because we have lost them in much the same way as we have lost the precious white rhinoceroses. God’s love has spilled over in our lives and we simply have no consciousness of it.
The water runs over capacity in His Providence of Jesus and True Parents. The structure of full salvation is something to be grateful for and it is much more than our worth. Hence, it is also our humble glory to be able to say that we are “unworthy” of the Lord’s grace as we acknowledge His favor upon us.

It is my aim to go through the Divine Principle with you from start to finish. This is the first article and video of a new series on DPconversations.com called Cover to Cover. It is important to understand the truth in fullness and I hope that you enjoy exploring the content of this work of Sun Myung Moon with me.
There are many different views that people have expressed about Sun Myung Moon and his life on earth. The fundamental understanding of Sun Myung Moon is the work that he himself did, regardless of what other people have to say about it. The content of the Divine Principle cannot be identified by anyone else as their word. Really, to know a man, the best resource is himself, is it not? To understand Sun Myung Moon and True Parents as established by Jesus at His second coming, we have to first know the Divine Principle.
Please view the video that goes hand in hand with this article. Click the link.
Within the Preface of the Divine Principle we see the great persistence of Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon to share the Divine Principle with humanity. It took his entire life to finally canonize an official text that would eventually be included in the eight great texts of the Completed Testament. It is the main text of his teaching.
Scientific studies of Cornelius and Caspi have concluded that the perception of self is more of an external result rather than an intrinsic internal belief of self. The study did not move beyond calculable data but it led to the theoretical understanding that a carpenter is not born a carpenter but is molded to become one by external influences. Likewise, the West Point Military Academy of the United States of America, though it even has an honor code does not mean that all who attend are honorable. Thus, it isn’t always one’s surrounding influences that determine a person’s belief of self. Furthering the idea of self-identification is the practice of yoga, or mind and body unity. Yet mind and body unity without an understanding of the highest mind or cause of energy, is simply impossible.
It is important to study the Divine Principle so that people can come out of ignorance and hopeless dead-ends in order to understand the highest mind: God. Humankind now, through True Parents, have a clear understanding of God that can unite the most internal mind with external scientific study. I will not go into the theoretics with you now. A multitude of science is just waiting to be explored with this truth. Instead, I will show you the rock, the Exposition of the Divine Principle, that the truth exists and that it is available to you.

No. It is not absurd to know the times
Spherical thoughts not singular planes
Train. To be free physically as the soul prospereth
Finally drawing her diamond threads
Prepare. Psalms 82 verse 6 “I said, ‘You are “gods”;
You are all sons of the Most High.”
Defend. Women who know their strength and place.
God’s Sons and Daughters bring joy and peace.
Truth. Ultimate self-respect on men.
Firmly stand in His repentance.
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.
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.

“Donald Trump is the closest thing that America has produced to a Latin American style populist, promising to keep out foreign competition and forcing companies to offer their workers a ‘fair’ deal.”Dr. Alan Greenspan
I am sure we all feel it—the change. Call it the sweeping tide of the Donald Trump Presidency or the aftermath of His Second Coming; there is a change on the menu. So, pick your entrees wisely. Let’s visit the Holy Bible in 2 Kings 12 as well as a very popular American economist and musician, Alan Greenspan. The Christian financial world is trembling!
The first idea of chapter twelve in 2 Kings is that of a very young King Joash’s reign in Jerusalem. He seemed to have lived a simple life but the Bible makes it clear what his distinct achievements were: In his Kingly authority he learned well from priest Jehoiada and financially orchestrated the revival of the temple of God on a national secular level. The Jewish people were rotting with evil in the high places of worship and the priests let the temple of God decay for twenty-three years after King Joash told them to repair it. In his prime, King Joash led the movement to make Jerusalem great again by forcing the repair of God’s temple.
Political tensions this year 2019 literally parallel the Kingship of Joash. Most notably, President Trump has restored America financially. He brings attention to Christendom and does not persecute any religious group. He simply works to restore and keep the one and only nation that had ever been founded and kept into the twenty-first century on the name of God. Dr. Alan Greenspan actually calls Trump the closest thing America has ever gotten to a Latin American-style populist. At least he’s serving the people and keeping America alive, should it ever be great again.
So, it’s the after effect of the coming and going of God in the name of Jesus and True Parents that always changes civilizations. Have you ever heard the song “American Pie?” It’s an endearing American song about Sun Myung Moon. If you don’t agree with me, promise, that you will go find it on Youtube or in your records tonight and listen to it? It will make you sad, oh so sad.

Absolute love | Absolute faith | Absolute obedience
Rev. Sun Myung Moon always used to refer to these three terms to describe our relationship with God. It was an honor for me to attend True Father Sun Myung Moon during morning Hoon Dok Hae meetings, which, I discuss in my podcast.
For the longest time, I had wanted to start a DPconversations podcast as I had felt awkward reading long portions of text to you, my audience, on YouTube videos.
So this short article allows for a new series of articles “DPconversations Podcast” accompanied with recorded and downloadable readings from the Cheon Seong Gyeong of Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon’s canonized texts. When you listen to the audio, I hope you enjoy my ramblings and thoughts on the text, similar to the way it was shared with me by Rev. Dr. Sun Myung Moon himself!
“Nevertheless, we have been unable to find the ultimate answer to the question: What is the nature of good and evil? We still do not have an absolute and definite truth which can enable us to distinguish, for example, which of the two, theism or atheism, is good and which is evil. Furthermore, we remain entirely ignorant of the answers to such questions as: What is the original mind, the wellspring of good desires? What is the origin of the evil mind that incites evil desires in opposition to the original mind? What is the root cause of the contradiction that brings people to ruin? In order to ward off evil desires and follow good desires, we must overcome this ignorance and gain the ability to distinguish clearly between good and evil. Then we can take the path to the good life the original mind seeks.” (Divine Principle, p.2 para 4)
Rev. Sun Myung Moon died on September 3, 2012 at 1:54AM KST. He was 92 years old. He died after suffering multiple organ failure. (Sun) The quoted words above are his very own canonized in the Divine Principle. I miss him so much. Even on a gloomy day when nobody cared for me and I was addictively beaten by my lunatic mother I could still walk into the room before the break of dawn and be filled with total happiness as I witnessed the Second Coming of Jesus Christ (Holy) standing before us all and speaking with his mouth the very words that are now canonized in the Cheon Seong Gyeong and the Divine Principle among other sacred texts.
Yes, he was a Korean man. He loved Korean culture because it has order and clarity between relationships of men and women, husband and wife, children and parents, older and younger siblings, grandparents and grandchildren, and even businessmen right within its language. It can take a casual tone. It can be professional. The best thing about Korean is that there is no room for misunderstanding. Hak Ja Han is truly the Harlot of Babylon for dissecting her husband’s spoken words to her own preference. Hyung Jin Moon, nevertheless, is standing responsibly to guard his Father’s work even if he himself is unable to do his own work in this decade. I believe that the ordeal with Mrs. Kang is a cover-act on behalf of Hyung Jin Moon to protect us little ones who also love and believe in True Father.
We love God so much. Nobody can deny that our hearts and our blood and our longing is for God. Father must be so lonely up in heaven watching the dilemma on earth. Our confusion and pain can only be resolved with the truth. Six years have passed since the day of his death. When I met Hyung Jin Moon at the end of November in 2014 I couldn’t believe my eyes. There he was, all quiet and alone. He is my beloved brother in whom I completely trust. I am grateful for the Holy Blessing that he carries and shares with my couple and others as the representatives of True Parents. As for Yeonah, I really hope she does gain some muscle and learns to stop acting and start loving. She, after-all, shares the responsibility of our collective and relatively easy burden to share God’s words of the Completed Testament Age with all the people of this world.
