Our Mission in the Pacific Rim Era
Ladies and gentlemen, the arrival of the Pacific Rim Era signifies many things. What do you think
the world would have been like if Jesus had fulfilled the complete messianic mission during his
lifetime on earth? Jesus came as the Savior and Messiah, to save all of humanity. He did not come just to save the people of Israel, a small nation located on a corner of the Mediterranean Sea. At that time, Rome, based at the center of the Mediterranean, was the center of human civilization. Rome was ready to rule the seas. Heavenís desire was that Jesus first teach and transform Rome and then rule over her, in order to bring salvation to all humanity through the vehicle of Romeís brilliant civilization. Yet, Jesus was cruelly put to death on the cross, as we know all too well through the biblical record.
After thousands of years of preparation, God finally was able to send Jesus to the earth as His only son. There is no way to fathom Godís heart as He anxiously watched Jesusí each and every action. Jesusí death was a tragedy that broke Godís heart. It brought Him anguish even more extreme than the time when Adam and Eve, whom He created as the first ancestors of humankind, were lost from the Garden of Eden due to the Fall.
During the two thousand years since the cross, God, in the background of history, has walked a
suffering path that is beyond human imagination. Through this course, He prepared the United States of America to serve as the nation of the Second Israel. As a Christian nation that includes
Catholicism and Protestantism as well as the Orthodox world, the United Statesí mission is to bring harmony and unity to Christianity as soon as possible, and, in the twenty-first century, to fulfill the responsibility that had been the Roman Empireís, but which was not realized in Jesusí time. The responsibility, within Godís providence, to bring harmony and oneness among the worldís six and a half billion people and to expedite the creation of a peaceful, ideal world, is on Americaís shoulders. These are not simply the words of Rev. Moon. This is Heavenís decree.
Then how can we unify Christianity? God has already revealed the solution through me, Rev. Moon, the True Parent of humankind. God has given me the supreme command to practice a life of true love, to understand completely the reality of the spirit world to which we go after we die, and to establish a model, ideal familyóa true family.
Then what kind of love is true love? And what kind of family is a true family?
