The Holy Marriage Blessing is the Path...
An edited version of Rev. Moonís speech given to fifteen thousand dignitaries in Seoul, Korea, on August 20, 2005, wherein he was honored with the ďKing of PeaceĒ award. His speech is titled: ďThe Holy Marriage Blessing is the Path to Unite the Virtues of Heaven and Earth and Harmonize and Unify the Universe as One.Ē
Respected guests from home and abroad, beloved Blessed Families: I would like to express my gratitude for the work you are doing around the world to establish Godís homeland and bring peace to humanity.
On this meaningful day, I would like to convey to you Heavenís message concerning the value of the Holy Marriage Blessing and its significance.
The Family of the Ideal of Creation
If Adam and Eve had reached perfection of their character and entered conjugal relationship with Godís blessing, God would have resided in them. Their children would have been linked with the holy order of love forming a parent-child with God. This is Godís greatest blessing to humanity.
The miracle of miracles is that man and woman exist together. Only when men and women are together can the Heavenly path be established and ethics and moral principles have their beginning.
The marriage of Adam and Eve would have also been Godís marriage. Adam and Eve would have become the embodiment of God. They would have become Godís body. He would have settled in their minds and become humanityís True Parents.
Fall and Restoration
Because we fell by false love, we must eradicate false love, even to the last vestiges. We must receive the true Holy Marriage Blessing centering on Godís love, and set out to build true families. We must multiply true descendants generation after generation. In the tens of thousands of generations since the beginning of human history, no one has been able to achieve this state and save humanity from evil and sin. The many religions that have arisen and fallen throughout history have done their best to achieve this purpose. Because of fallen nature, they have either failed or been forced to take detours.
God, as a Parent of true love, gave Jesus the status of His only begotten son and made Himself incarnated on this earth. Jesus came with the mission of Savior and Messiah, and dedicated 33 years of his life to accomplish this will of Heaven. In the end, even he passed away midway through the course as a sacrifice on the cross.
I am not referring to any failure of the part of Jesus himself. Jesus, who was the perfected second Adam, searched for his bride, but Judaism and Israel (the chosen people), failed to unite with him. They forced him to go the way of the cross.
Jesus was the incarnation of Heavenís seed, pure and sinless. In the end, he had to return to Heaven without planting that seed on earth. Jesus came to find a bride on earth, hold the Marriage of the Lamb before Heaven and earth, establish a true family and multiply Heavenís sinless and true lineage. This was blocked midway through his course.
