The warriors from Koguryo were known for their boldness and penchant for showing off. Moon’s manners are so presumptuous and his claims to omniscience are so preposterous that his public behavior often makes him appear to be a caricature…. An example of Moon’s need to be boss can be gleaned from the report of a former West-Coast disciple, who claimed that Moon kicked him in public and then asked the audience “if they would not be willing to receive the same treatment.”
It is hard to say whether Moon carries his ancestral hunter’s temperament in his genes, or needs to reenact cruelties that, as we shall see, were once perpetrated on him, but in either case his arrogance is that of a weak man, who needs to appear strong by bragging and bullying those below him. Despite his many tirades about himself and his followers as crusading soldiers against communism, Moon was cited as a draft dodger in a Korean newspaper. In order to avoid the draft in South Korea, Moon forged papers stating that he was forty-three when he was actually of draft age. Despite his fervent cries against communism he did not show any eagerness to do battle against the north during the Korean War.
An understanding of the excessiveness of Moon’s posture as a brave man and the picture of his followers as soldiers can be gleaned from his 1976 speech, “God’s Hope for America,” in which he stated, “For the sake of God, we will never retreat, but will win, whatever the sacrifice may be.” Parents of Unification Church members were told that “their” dedicated sons and daughters are champions of God, crusading for the victory of God’s will. As God’s front line, they are declaring war against evil. They are courageously fighting this noble battle. We must overcome evil.” Moon’s language is reminiscent of the shaman generals in ancient Korea, who were adamant as to their power to conquer evil opponents.
The word “I” is repeated so often in almost every one of Moon’s talks that he elicits doubt as to whether there really is an “I.” The Unification Church has printed an official biography of Sun Myung Moon in the form of a glossy brochure in which he equates his greatness with that of Confucius and Buddha. The organizational tract on its glorious leader is scant on facts and excessive in its tributes to Moon’s sterling qualities as a saintly man who will save the world.
One of the persistent themes in Moon’s life is his wish to be someone other than himself. He claims at the age of twelve to have “prayed for extraordinary things” such as “wisdom greater than Solomon’s,” and “faith greater than the Apostle Paul’s ” Moon asserts his yearning to be the possessor of three doctoral degrees. Although he claims to have actually graduated from Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan there is no record to indicate that he ever obtained a degree. The pomposity of Moon’s pretense that he knows what “God” wants for the entire universe precludes the possibility of his having any respect for real knowledge, and it is quite likely that his grandiose fantasies prevented him from achieving distinction through normal channels. There is also no evidence that Moon was ever ordained by any Protestant Church in Korea, and his role as an Evangelist is more akin to the medicine man’s identity as one who has been chosen by the spirits. Moon’s two attempts to recognition as a bona fide member of the New York Council of Churches, suggest that he still desires acceptance from the traditional religious associations which never chose to have him among them.
Those who feel worthless or unwanted often compensate for their emptiness by conjuring up imaginary voices that tell them of their greatness. By Moon’s own account he possesses qualifications as the next Messiah: “From childhood I was clairvoyant… I can see through people’s spirits.” Sun Myung Moon insists that on Easter Sunday, 1936, Jesus appeared to him and said, “Carry out my unfinished task.” Then another voice from heaven supposedly informed him: “You will be the completer of man’s salvation by being the Second Coming of Christ.” Moon’s telephone-call-type revelation from Jesus sounds like the fabrication of an adolescent weaned on Cecil B. DeMille’s religious epics.
New Age Frontiers (NAF) June 1967
Report from Washington, D.C.
After dinner Miss Kim began to speak:
Our Leader might be coming… If our preparation is not adequate it will take many years to clear from his mind our laxity. Our preparation must be thorough. Some of us remember his last visit when some were not completely prepared. We remember his anger at that time. If he comes and sees lack of preparation this time, his anger will be much greater and much longer-lasting. …
The following is from notes of several people at the gathering. Although it is not verbatim, it is nearly so.
“He is different from all other men. Although we follow our Leader’s example, his course is not our course. He suffered, and we should suffer. However, his glorification is not our glorification. He is unique. He is not thrifty. In theory he is supposed to spend more than anyone else in the world each day. Because he represents God, he is to spend at least enough to satisfy and relieve the grudge of God. God has never used His creation as He desired. This doesn’t mean we should not be thrifty. We must be three times as thrifty. Our Leader is quite temperamental and is easily angered. However, he doesn’t mean for others to be temperamental. Temper, jealousy, stubbornness and pride are for us the four gates to hell. Yet, I think he is the number one stubborn man. To show his absolute authority he must yield to no one. He must stubbornly teach others, opposing their beliefs. You may stumble at this quality. Also, he is the number one arrogant man. He’s intolerant. He is number one in jealousy. As Jesus said: “He who loves those more than me is not worthy of me.” Our Leader is the same. So you have to really understand the Principle. Your life must be based upon the Principle. You must be firmly rooted in prayer life to withstand the judgment. He scolds those whom he loves. His scolding is preparation for the responsibility he wishes to give them.
He never says thank you, but returns what you have done in a divine way. Don’t expect him to appreciate anything. Do and do for him, and be prepared to be scolded. Your faith in him must be absolute. Never, never expect anything like I did toward you from our Leader.
From her words, we begin to see the preparation we must make in our hearts for our Leader. Let us expand our love for him.”
Extracts from ‘Moonstruck’ by Allen Tate Wood, published in 1979.
National headquarters was at 1611 Upshur Street, N.W., a big, funny old house with a double pointed roof in a nice upper-middle-class black neighborhood with lots of big, shady maple trees.
… I had arrived during the dinner hour … I joined the group of twenty-five or thirty seated at the two long cafeteria-style tables down in the linoleum-floored basement. Miss Kim sat at the end of one table and I was seated next to her.
“Miss Kim had always been a critical follower of the Reverend Moon. Once she had told me that she believed he had some years ago lost his ability to read minds and travel in the astral world. That was why he had to employ the three mediums now. Once she had hinted that Moon was not the messiah, but only in the line of the messiah. He was an Abraham figure, and his son or his grandson would be the true messiah. This was utter heresy, of course, and this was in the back of my mind as Miss Kim spoke.”
True Mother’s message given at the Cheon Jeong Gung
(CIG Year 1, HC 1.14 / Feb. 23, 2013)
How could only you among 7 billion people on earth participate in the historical and unprecedented ceremony of Foundation Day? It is like a dream. What do you think?
If you are a person who is very fortunate, what should you do? You should lead a life of sharing the fortune with others. That means it comes with responsibility.
As of now, all Blessed families have fallen into debt so much with Heavenly Parent and True Parents. Do you know what the debt is?
You have received the priceless Blessing. How can the fallen people attend Heavenly Parent? All our ancestors and people who were born on earth and are now in the spirit world have been eagerly waiting for this day. Among them there were many people who made more bloody efforts and offered jeongseong for God’s providence than you did. There were many historical people of that kind. In that sense, we are so unworthy. Do you feel it? (“Yes.”)
From now on, what you need to do is with all your mind and body to say spontaneously “Thank you Heavenly Parent and the True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind,” or “Thank you for accepting an unworthy person like me as the citizen of Cheon Il Guk and as your child. I am so thankful and I do not know how to express it.” It is time for you to take action from the bottom of your heart. Then you should absolutely fulfill your responsibility, should you not?
You do not know when you will go to the spirit world, but are you confident that you will become a person to whom I would say there “I raised you on earth, and you came here now after you have worked very hard”? (“Yes.”) Really? (“Yes.”)
Starting from today, all Blessed families in the world must live with gratitude. Especially for three weeks from today, express with your mind and body your gratitude towards Heavenly Parent and the True Parents of Heaven, Earth, and Humankind through your utmost jeongseong. Will you do it? (“Yes.”) This is the special jeongseong peiod. Do you understand?
Please spit out or put down all personal things that you have been attached to as of now. Do you understand? I sincerely ask all of you to become an existence, individual or true family whom Heaven can embrace. (“Yes.”)

Re. : True Parents’ Instructions for the Cheon Il Guk Foundation Day New Beginning
May the blessings and love of our Heavenly Parent and True Parents be with all regions and mission nations.
This is to announce True Parents’ instructions given on the occasion of the long-awaited Cheon Il Guk Foundation Day. Please share this announcement with all blessed families and guide them accordingly.
1. Important Name Changes
1) Addressing “God” as “Heavenly Parent”
(1) From now, when beginning a prayer report, we should begin by addressing God and True Parents as “Heavenly Parent, Beloved True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind.”
(2) “True God’s Day” shall now be called “Heavenly Parent’s Day”
2) Changing the name of the year from “Cheon-gi” to “Cheon Il Guk”
(1) The “4th year of Cheon-gi” shall be called the “1st year of Cheon Il Guk.”
(2) The heavenly calendar will continued to be used but shall now be rendered as “1.1 by the heavenly calendar in the 1st year of Cheon Il Guk” instead of “1.1 by the heavenly calendar in the 4th year of Cheon-gi.”
2. Changes made to the three cheers of eok-mansei, the call to offer gyeongbae, and Family Pledge
1) Three cheers of eok-mansei should now be made for:
“Eok-mansei for the beloved Heavenly Parent!
Eok-mansei for the victorious True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind!
Eok-mansei for the establishment of Cheon Il Guk!”
2) The following call should be used when doing gyeongbae:

(2) Verse 8: “Completed Testament Age” should be changed to “Era of Cheon Il Guk”
1. Sun Myung Moon is a thief from the beginning: He stole all teachings and ritual practices from the Jesus Church (Lee Yong-do, Paek Nam-ju, Kim Paek-mun, Ms. Kim Song-do, Ms. Huh Ho-bin and grandmother Pak Wol-yong belonged to the this church).
2. Sun Myung Moon stole all assets of the Unification Church and transferred them into the name of the Moon family members.
3. The Moon family stole also vast amounts of money from the general public by using fraudulent sales methods (compare the sales methods in Japan!).
4. Sun Myung Moon used Unification Church members as slave workers in his many companies without paying them anything. The families of the members had to suffer enormously because they had no proper housing conditions, no health care, no pension funds and no money to send their children to good quality colleges.
5. Sun Myung Moon used his female members for sexual services: they were religious prostitutes who slept with strangers in order to recruit them into the Unification Church as new slave members.
6. Sun Myung Moon united with far-right military regimes in South and Central America and sold them weapons from his arms factories. The death squads of the military regimes kidnapped, tortured and killed poor peasants only for the reason that they required better pay and livings conditions for their families and perhaps belonged to labour unions. But this is not a crime and tens of thousands of innocent people were killed in this anti-communistic war. Sun Myung Moon has blood on his hands.
7. Hak Ja Han is a collaborator of her husband. She certainly knew all about Sun Myung Moon’s crimes but she kept her mouth shut and never revealed anything to the Unification Church members or the public. She is as guilty as her husband.
Dear Reverend Moon,
Although you have passed into the spirit world, your followers say you are now omniscient and omnipresent so I feel I can still address this letter directly to you.
I myself followed you for a number of years, received your blessing and looked forward to living in the society of co-prosperity you promised us (DP page 445). It took me some time to realise that prosperity was only meant to be enjoyed by yourself and your family, because as you said:
‘The only thing that matters is that my children take up positions as the leaders of the cosmos.’
There are of course a fair number of church leaders who also manage to enjoy a modicum of prosperity – which is, I’m afraid, the only reason why many are still ‘believers’.
I know you deserved to enjoy the good things of life to make up for all the indemnity you say you kept paying. Unfortunately, I’m still unsure about your indemnity – in all the years I knew about you I never saw you working, cooking for yourself, doing your own laundry, making your own travel arrangements, doing your own tax returns, taking any care of individual members or even of your own children, so apart from giving directions to your assistants and talking to church members, what was the indemnity you say you kept paying? Ah! It must have been prayer. No, I’m afraid not:
‘I haven’t prayed for the last twenty years. Mother was very surprised to see me start praying again, but I knew the time would come when I had to guide Heavenly Father.’ USA 1999
So you started praying again in order to guide God, very considerate. So if you weren’t paying indemnity by praying how were you doing it? Fasting? Not according to your overworked kitchen staff. Ah! Fishing for long periods? But you loved fishing, and like most fishermen, you were happy to stay out all day. So maybe it was talking to the members for long hours? But again you loved that – all the adoration and sycophantic applause. No, sorry, you’ve got me beat— I can’t see the indemnity anywhere.
Something else I’ve found difficult to understand is to do with the matching and blessing. I was originally given to believe that God was working through you during the matching process, but on at least two occasions in Europe you matched physical brothers and sisters together, and I heard of it happening in Japan and America also. So what gives? I know you said in one of your speeches that Jesus should have married John the Baptist’s sister – who according to you would have been his half-sister – so maybe such relationships are allowable in your kingdom of heaven. Either way, you changed those matchings after being informed they were brothers and sisters, but isn’t it strange that God didn’t know about them?
So anyway blessed couples are supposed to produce children substantially free of original sin, and your children are especially pure – being the progeny of the messiah and his bride. But, I then read one of your speeches where you said, ‘I knew this time would come, (when some of my children would disunite with me) maybe I should turn to the son of the concubine. The children of the concubine are better because there is more passion.’ (involved in their conception) Korea 1996
Now here I’m really mystified. If the child of your concubine is better than those from your marriage, where does this leave the idea of the blessing?
Let me think awhile. Adam and Eve fell because they had sex out of wedlock – they fornicated and because of that the original sin was passed down through the generations. So, the messiah, the Second Advent, is supposed to restore this by establishing the blessed marriage (the marriage of the lamb) and then the children from that marriage are supposed to born without original sin and establish a new lineage, thereby creating the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.
So where does the excuse for the concubine come from? In order to restore the sin of fornication does the messiah have to commit it again but this time for God’s sake? Does he have to restore Cain’s sin by murdering someone for God’s sake? What about all the other sins? Where does it end?
I know you were trying to restore gambling by spending many hours in casinos. I also know you said you had to enjoy the luxuries of life sometimes, because otherwise when the rich people die and go to the spirit world they would be ashamed in front of you – because they enjoyed the high life and you didn’t. So you stayed in luxurious hotels, were driven around in expensive cars and flew in private airplanes all for the sake of the rich people, again very considerate.
You know, I really have to come back to this concubine thing. If, as you said, the children of the concubine are better than those from a blessed marriage then surely that means the blessing has no value whatsoever, and that blessed children are no different to any other. That must also mean there is no restoration providence and that you weren’t really the messiah after all.
I’m sorry Reverend but I’m starting to have serious doubts about this whole business.
Another aspect of your vaunted dispensation that I found confusing was your use of numbers. Most of the people counted in the 360 million couples blessing didn’t even know they were blessed. For example, in India sachets of holy wine were thrown into reservoirs and anyone drinking from them was counted as being blessed. The amazing thing is, however, that you then announced that all the newly blessed couples should now make a ‘total living offering’ of $10,000 and come to Jardim Training Center in Brazil for a workshop.
Considering that $10,000 is more than most of these Indians will see in a lifetime, that they don’t even have a hope of affording a flight to Brazil, and that they have no idea they’ve been blessed, then surely your expectation of 360 million couples turning up at Jardim with suitcases full of cash was a little fanciful to say the least.
This ancestor liberation is something else I find confusing. After only a few thousand members had attended these liberation ceremonies it was announced that 36 billion ancestors had been liberated. Later it was said that more than 360 billion had been liberated. Now considering the most generous statistics state that only about 150 billion people have ever lived on this planet in the past, I’m left wondering where the other 210 billion are from. Mars maybe? Maybe all these numbers are just symbolic – except of course until it comes to financial offerings.
I was extremely happy to read your speech of June 14th 1999 where you said,
‘There are no more hardships or indemnity.’
Again on Sept. 9th 1999
‘Satan has completely surrendered.’
Sept. 10th 1999
‘Therefore the time when Satan can oppose us is passed.’
And finally my favourite was on Oct. 27th 1999
‘No more indemnity is needed. The providence of restoration is completed.’
However, after Young Jin’s suicide in Las Vegas (as reported by the Las Vegas Police Department) you changed your tune yet again.
Nov. 14th 1999
‘Take responsibility by paying indemnity.
‘Satan tried to attack True Parents directly.’
‘Can you live a life of complete indemnity?’
Now while I have every sympathy for the loss of Young Jin, who appears to have been a very nice young man, this still does not explain this complete contradiction in your speeches. If Satan had completely surrendered how was he still able to attack your family? And if the providence of restoration is completed why were you asking the church members to continue paying indemnity? (Which anyway appears to be a waste of time because you said,
‘Did you pay indemnity? No. Only Father and Mother together did.’)
I’m getting really confused now, because you said on Aug. 8th 1999
‘The lord of the Second Advent is a person with no property.’
However, on Jan. 2nd 1996 you were boasting as follows:
‘You may not know, but I already own a small airplane company and have several airplanes.’ And you also said ‘In Montevideo I built a landmark hotel, which is the biggest and the best in South America.’
‘I have the desire to become the richest person in the world…’ Dec. 1st 1997
‘I could buy a Mercedes Benz 600 series if I wanted to.’ Feb. 13th 1997
And I suppose the palace at Cheong Pyeong and the new one on the island near Yeosu are solely for God to live in. Oh, my mistake. I forgot you had become ‘the god of the day’, the incarnation of God on earth.
There are actually quite a few of your statements that I have difficulty with:
‘While Oriental people sleep on their backs and face God, asking Him to embrace them, Westerners sleep on their stomachs, facing down like animals; that’s why free sex and homosexual problems predominate in the Western hemisphere.’
Has the world really waited 2000 years to receive such wisdom from the Second Advent?
‘I did not blink my eyes for three hours once. So I overcame the number three.’
It’s lucky number three didn’t call in four and five or you’d have been well hammered.
‘A woman who does not love Father is not a complete woman: something must be lacking.’
Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who’s the most delusional of all?
‘Our goal is to create a world where everyone has affection for me.’
Really? So whose definition of the Kingdom of Heaven would that be then?
‘That is why widows, widowers and people who do not marry are to be pitied. They have no place to settle in love, so they just fade away. They have no foundation for eternal existence.’ Feb. 7th 1999
So all the monks and nuns, all the young unmarried soldiers who died in war, (even the Korean one that was supposed to have been fought just to save you,) all the children who have died throughout history – all of these poor souls will just fade away and have no place in the spiritual world?
I’m afraid your concept of the Kingdom, whether it be in this world or the next, appears to be very cold and heartless – and does not reflect anything of God’s loving parental nature.
‘A person with no descendents will have no place to rest or play in the next world.’ Feb. 4th 1999
So all the church sisters who were kept fundraising for so long that when starting their married life they were too old to have children, they will have nowhere to rest or play in the spirit world?
Let’s get this straight, Jesus, the Dalai Lama, and all those celibates throughout history who honestly dedicated their lives to God or the betterment of mankind, they will just fade away, but someone like Genghis Khan, who was responsible for the slaughter of millions but fathered hundreds of children, after serving his time in hell he will eventually be able to live it up in heaven? Give me a break!
When I originally joined your church we were told that the dwelling place of God was in the ‘Original Mind’ of man. This apparently was some unpolluted area of the spirit mind that always directs man towards goodness. Now, however, His abode appears to have changed.
‘My sexual organ is the original palace of love… the palace where God can dwell.’ Jan. 1st 1997
This to me would seem a rather appalling drop in living standards to inflict upon the Almighty. I also find it a little difficult to understand, because surely you don’t take that organ with you when you enter heaven, whereas your spirit mind is eternal (unless of course you are unmarried).
Anyway, maybe I should put aside all my doubts, sell everything I possess and use the money for a trip to Cheong Pyeong. I could then donate much of the cash to liberate the spirits of the Martians or Venusians or whoever we’re liberating now. I’ve heard the people in charge of Cheong Pyeong are also selling apartments in the spirit world – very useful because it means you don’t have to spend time finding an estate agent once you cross over, because you know what crooks estate agents can be.
Yours in search of sanity and a good laugh,
P.S. All of these quotations were carefully checked against the original Korean.
True Mother’s Message at the 7th Anniversary of the Establishment of UPF
(Cheon Shim Peace World Center, Nov. 24, 2012)
Mother spoke briefly but slowly with dignity. From the beginning to the end, she tried to hold back her tears.
“Ambassadors for peace who came from all over Korea, I am glad to see you all. We saw a video clip of Rev. Moon and heard his speech and a long time has already passed. I would like to ask you one thing and I will speak briefly to you with the title ‘탕감(Indemnity).’
The period when Rev. Moon and I were born, although there was 23-year difference between his birthday and mine, could be called the ‘dark ages’ or ’ turbulent era’ in Korean history. Right after being liberated from Japanese imperialism, the Korean peninsula was divided into the South and North by two different ideologies. Then the Korean war broke out. It was a miserable environment where Korea could not stand up again by herself. But in God’s providence, 16 nations sent by the UN joined the war and saved Korea.
60 years after the war, Rev. Moon, as a private person, sent the Little Angels to those 16 nations, which Korea as a nation could not do. Their performance consoled the hearts of the veterans, and reminded them that the Korean people are not ungrateful people. (Applause)
God’s providence never develops without going through indemnity. Those who studied the Divine Principle know it well. ‘Indemnity’ does not necessarily means something bad. It could give you a promise for the future. Rev. Moon has unfolded God’s providence on earth during this really difficult time.
Let’s think of the Israelite from 2,000 years ago. It was the Messiah that they, under Roman dominion, were waiting for with the pride that they were chosen people. They believed that once the Messiah came, they would be liberated from everything and stand out in the world. However, providential history does not develop in such a fancy way. They did not know ‘indemnity.’ Consequently, they killed the only begotten-son of God. Then what happened to the Israelite?
They became a people who were exiled for 2,000 years.
When an individual or nation, which Heaven has chosen, cannot fulfill their responsibilities, the providence will move from them to another individual or nation. After Jesus’s resurrection, the history of Christianity began and 2,000 years have passed. Their hope has been Christ’s Second Advent. But they did not know ‘indemnity’ either. They waited for the Messiah who was to come in a splendid manner on the clouds. However, as you know, it is Rev. Moon who came on earth as the Messiah of the Second Coming, Savior and True Parent. (Applause)
History of restoration through indemnity does not come easy. There can not be any development in it without paying great indemnity step by step. At any point in history, has any great person been able to say during their lifetime, ‘Everything has been done,’„„„ (She wiped her eyes with her handkerchief) Has there been anybody who lived such a life and could proclaim after having liberated God, ‘Everything has been perfected, completed and concluded. The history of God’s providence is at a new start now.’ (Applause)
Korea is the same in this context. (Strongly) You have your responsibility. You can not avoid it. You are standing at the center of God’s providence, which is a blessed position. You should not merely stand there.
After the Seonghwa ceremony of Rev. Moon, I said ‘There is no stop in our movement as the Unification Church. We will have only development in the future.’ Peace can not be realized while you are just sitting without doing anything. I will give you an example.
There was a man called Han Jun Jang Hyun Jo on my mother’s side. He sacrificed all his assets and money for his nation. (Katsumi: About 400 years ago during the Chosun dynasty, he and his brother renovated bridges hung over the Dalrae River in order to welcome Chinese officials in his nation.) Heaven remembered it and told him ‘I will send you a great person among your descendants.’ (Katsumi: this was written in their genealogical record / 족보). Pondering this history, I come to think that person is me. (She smiled shyly.) (Applause).
When I met Rev. Moon, I was young but I realized what the history of restoration through indemnity was. So though I was young, I was determined to definitely accomplish God’s providence in my lifetime. (Applause) I talked about Han Jun Jo and that story tells us that a grateful mind is important. In the state of 100 % gratitude, the mind and body can be united. Then their neighbors become happy. I understood that.
Dear ambassadors for peace. When you live with gratefulness towards the grace that Heaven gave you, I am confident that you can make people around you happy in your family, society, nation and the world. You, ambassadors for peace are lucky people because you can live and work in the same time with True Parents of Heaven, Earth and Humankind who appear only one time on earth in history. (Applause)
Please do not be indebted. You should pay back your debt. In order to do so, you should widely raise the seeds of the truth around you. Will you do it? (‘Yes!) I sincerely ask you to become honest, brave, and true ambassadors for peace who pledge, until the end of your life on earth, to return honor to Heaven in a higher, greater, and wider manner by indemnifying what you could not do until now in front of the True Father of Heaven, Earth and Humankind. (Applause)”
NOTE: These notes are taken from a Peace TV video clip. They cannot be published as definitive texts and should never be used in the future as an “official” publication of True Parent’s words. However, they do provide a good idea of the “spirit” of the message. - Rev. Katsumi Kambashi
Finally realized why these lectures never made sense to me - they were a load of crap!
Jan 8th 1999 Uruguay
“If you add each digit of 1999, it comes to 28, and adding 8 to 28 is 36. The time of the ceremony is 8 o’clock. Thirty-six plus 8 makes 44, which goes beyond 43. After 7:30, by going beyond 43 and reaching 44, everything can be put in order.”
Sept 10th 1999 Korea
“Repeat after True Parents. ‘1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9.’ The number 9 has returned as God’s number. The number 7 was blocked but was liberated by 7.8 jeol. Upon that foundation, Father opened the gate for the number 9 and completely removed all blockages for the number 10.”
“Seven was the problem. Eight is the number for a new beginning. The number of Satan can no longer hinder us so repeat: nine [nine]. Ten [ten].
Today is September 10. It is ten minutes past 10 o’clock in the morning. That makes the number three. If you take out a number here it makes 30. That means everything that is based on the number 3 is OK.”
Shit! No kidding. And here I was thinking mathematics had to make sense.
What the hell is happening here and why is Moon playing with a baseball bat on stage?
