Rev. Hyung Jin Moon
Let’s go to our Scripture, if you have your Bibles. Go to Matthew 13. We’re going to look at a whole bunch of parables in Matthew 13. Now remember, two weeks ago we looked at the parable of the wheat and the tares, remember that? Wasn’t that fascinating? The wheat and the tares. Now we’re going to look at some of the other parables here, let’s look at one of the most famous ones, the most prominent ones in Matthew 13, and that starts from verse 1.
“The same day went Jesus out of the house, and sat by the sea side. And great multitudes were gathered together unto him, so that he went into a ship, and sat; and the whole multitude stood on the shore. And he spake many things unto them in parables, saying, Behold, a sower went forth to sow; and when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up. Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth; and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth; and when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had not root, they withered away. And some fell among thorns; and the thorns spring up, and choked them But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold; some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear; and the disciples came, and said unto him, Why speakest thou unto them in parables? He answered and said unto them, because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance; but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. Therefore speak to them in parables; because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand.”
Now look at this last verse. You know this last verse has always been a mysterious verse, hasn’t it? Look at this. This last verse from 12. Let’s go to 11.
“He answered them, “because it is given to you to know the mysteries of the kingdom, but to them it is not.”
Look at this here. “For whosoever has…” Has what? Has understanding to know the mysteries of the kingdom. To him shall be given. And he shall have more abundance. Look at this. “But whosoever hath not…” Whosoever does not know of the mysteries of the kingdom, from him shall be taken away ever what he has. This has always been a mysterious one, right? We don’t know exactly what that means, but we can kind of “feel” what that means, right? There is a lot of commentary on this in the biblical world, in the body of Christ. Let’s look at that last part. We’re going to get back to this top section, but let’s look at this last part in the context of the Freedom Society. And in the context of the Cheon Il Guk Constitution. Which are really the mysteries of the kingdom. It is delineated in the Cheon Il Guk Constitution how the mystery of the kingdom will look like. Now look at that in the context of the Cheon Il Guk Constitution. Look at this statement here in verse 12. “For whosoever has…” Has what? Has the knowledge of the constitution, of the law of the set-up of the Cheon Il Guk, of the kingdom. To him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance. Very interesting. People who know that kingdom, who can dwell in that kingdom, who can live in the blessing of that kingdom, who can reside in that kingdom —- we know we will create the most free society in the world. It will create the freest society. It has more freedoms and opportunities for free association, free trade, to work with partners and co-workers. This is a real place with real people, right? The kingdom of heaven on earth is a real place with real people. Amen? It’s not supposed to be some la-la land, Disneyland, where angels are flying and there are no problems. We saw in the parable of the wheat and the tares — there are tares in the kingdom. Right? We saw that in the parable that we studied two weeks ago. There are problematic weeds in the kingdom —- “tares” is how Jesus described it, right? And remember how the angels come and they separate them and they throw the tares into the fire? And we studied that word, “angelos,” remember that? We studied the word “angelos” which is the word for angel or messenger, remember that? And that it’s not only a divine or celestial messenger; it can also be a physical angel. It’s interesting because the bible also says that when you go to heaven, you will be as the angels are. It’s interesting, as angels. Because angels, at the same time they are very powerful, they are also servants to the kingdom. But think about it in terms of the peace police, the peace militia, all citizens practice their serving, their living for the sake of others and protecting their neighbors by being part of the peace police, the peace militia. Does that make sense? There is no federalized police, there’s no federalized military, there’s no federalized, centralized power block which is armed like that. Because of course, everybody knows in the history of totalitarian man, centralized military or police force is the most dangerous thing you can possibly have. And it is the most easy to take over if you are a tyrant. If you have a centralized military, it’s easy if you’ve got billions and trillions of dollars just to take up that force. All you have to do is buy up the politicians, buy up that government; you’ve got control of all the power there. And you can force people to do stuff right? And we see this pattern of totalitarian, archangelic, satanic history repeat, repeat, repeat throughout the entire fall of man, amen? What was given to Adam was the kingdom, he was to be the king, he was to rule and reign, have dominion, that means to rule, to have sovereignty over the earth and all the things of the air, everything. It was supposed to be a kingdom where Adam and Eve were supposed to be the sovereigns. Isn’t that interesting? But that kingdom was taken away, the kingdom fell, Lucifer stole the kingdom. And then he became what? The prince of this world. He became the king that rules over all the kings, right? So we’ve discussed these things. Satan tempted Jesus with what? Not money, power, but with kingdoms of the world. “I’ll give you the kingdoms of the world, you bow to me, I’ll give you the kingdoms, right? It’s the fall of the kingdom. When Jesus came back, we looked at all those dozens and dozens of scriptures talking about Jesus saying, the gospel of the kingdom. “Vasileus,” “vasilia” the kingdom. The gospel of the kingdom. So, now when we look at this verse 12, “for whosoever hath, he shall have more abundance.” Look, for people who have the kingdom, who have the constitution, they will have the understanding of what it means to be free. They will be building up the networks and the relationships to have actualization of what exists in the kingdom. Free trade, free association, partnerships. Win/win solutions. They will be thinking in a different kingdom, do you see what I mean? Even before that kingdom comes, they will be in a spiritually different kingdom, amen? They will be looking to find honest partners with whom to work, they will looking to find win/win solutions to work with people. And so abundance will come to them. Isn’t that interesting? But look at this. But those who don’t have the mysteries of the kingdom, don’t understand the Constitution of Cheon Il Guk, how Cheon Il Guk, how the kingdom will look like, how the kingdom will be set up. They will what? Even what they have will be taken away because they are still thinking “win/lose.” Every socialist system, every communist system, every single totalitarian system does what? It promotes the jealousy factor. “They have more than you. You should be jealous of them. That’s bad what they have. They have more than you. Give us power so that we can take that from them and give it to all of you.” Of course, when you do that you become a slave to the government, right? So every totalitarian state does that, and even what you have is taken away because you’ve sold out your freedom. You’ve adopted the socialism, you’ve adopted the communism, you’ve adopted that, and even in your mind, you’re no longer thinking win/win, you’re thinking “I’m a victim, I need to use force to steal other peoples’ things, and then I’ll be better.” You see, you become almost like a demon. And so what you have is taken away. In the end, the people who go after that, in the end, look at them, look at all the countries that have become socialist, communist. Even what they have, even what the citizens have, all taken away. They are promised lies, they are promised, that there will be equality for everybody, everyone will get paid the same way, the proletariat will rise up and get rid of the big corporations, we will centralize government. Marx predicted that once he centralized the government, that it will naturally come under private ownership, and that it will naturally dissipate. Which of course, it never happens! It stays more centralized and more centralized, and then it gets bought up by the big money boys. The big money boys. Right?
So in the context of understanding the Cheon Il Guk Constitution, you can see how that totally makes sense. If it’s the battle between the political system of Cheon Il Guk and the political systems of totalitarianism, oligarchy, socialism, communism, you can see that whoever has Cheon Il Guk, to those shall be given and shall have more abundance. More opportunity. Look at this. But those who have not the Cheon Il Guk, but have socialism, totalitarianism, oligarchy, who have communism, what? Even what he has shall be taken away. It’s exactly the picture of a communist state. I’ve been to a couple of them. Father has sent us to a couple of them. We’ve been to North Korea. We’ve seen it. You have to get a permit to move from city to another. To go to another town you need to report it to your local consulate. You can’t just walk to the next street; you can’t just drive to the next street like you guys can do here. This is how totalitarianism always ends up. So in the context of Freedom Society, we can see, my goodness, that scripture makes total sense. Total sense in terms of understanding Cheon Il Guk and its opposite, the satanic kingdoms. Amen?
Now let’s look at what Jesus said, this is very fascinating because now the disciples come back in and they ask Jesus, “Jesus, what is this, the parable of the sower, and he explains more in depth starting from verse 18, so he gives it in verse 1, and he’s explaining it in verse 18. And let’s see what Jesus says. He says,
“Here ye therefore the parable of the sower. When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while; for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended. He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches; choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it, which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”
That’s quite a mysterious parable, isn’t it? Now we usually interpret this in terms of faith. And obviously there is an element there. But look at it again in the context of the kingdom. Jesus knew about the kingdom. He knew that the kingdom that was in Eden had to come back to this earth. In fact, he told his disciples, pray every day, “Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” He said to pray it every day, you should be praying about the kingdom coming every day. Right? We’re not supposed to be just praying about our stuff, we’re supposed to be praying about his kingdom coming to earth. So Jesus knew very clearly that the kingdom had to come. He knew what the kingdom was, but the people of this time lived under the imperial system. They grew up their whole lives under Roman control. They could not understand this. It’s like trying to explain Freedom Society or it’s like trying to explain Cheon Il Guk Constitution to somebody who has lived in a communist, socialist state their whole life. They can’t imagine how that would be possible. “What do you mean, how would that be possible? How would it be possible that we don’t have to report to our consulate to go to the next town? How would that be possible? That’s crazy, that world can never exist.” You see, they are not able to see it. Right? So what’s interesting in this scripture, Jesus is explaining, look at this, he’s saying, those who hear the word, they don’t understand it, then the wicked one comes and catches it away. Right? He takes it away. Again, there’s another one who receives the seed in the stony places, he hears the word, he’s happy about it, but then persecution comes. Persecution comes and then he can’t handle it anymore, and then he is offended. There’s another one that receives it among thorns, and look at this, the deceitfulness of riches chokes the word. This is very interesting, because what we have to realize is that there is pressure. Once we understand the kingdom, we know Cheon Il Guk is coming, you will have pressure. There will be attack upon you. This is very important. Because it is not of this world, it is not of any kingdom that has come before. It is so radically different from what the kingdoms of the past have been. So as you understand the mysteries of the kingdom, and as you understand the mysteries of freedom and responsibility, as you understand the mysteries of the Cheon Il Guk Constitution, you will start feeling pressure from the world. The wicked one will want to come and snatch you away, right? Or he’ll want to give you tribulation, right? Persecution, and by and by offend you, right? The wicked one will what? Will want to tempt you with the deceitfulness of the riches of this world. Because look at today’s modern world, how are riches, how are the super-rich — I’m not talking about the one percent, I’m talking about the 0.1 percent, the one percent of the one percent. How is it that they amass all the money of the world. I think that there are now studies that show that the wealth of the entire world is in the hands of about a thousand people. And all of those thousand people are related to just a couple of major big banks. All the world’s assets, ok? So how is that happening, in the deceitfulness of riches? In the current world, how you amass that type of wealth and power. What happens? You have to become deceitful. This is really the archangelic mammon system broken down real simple. You have the big money, right? Jesus said you cannot worship God and mammon. Mammon is the big bank god. Mammon is the money god. So he’s the money god. So you cannot worship God and you cannot worship mammon at the same time. Right? The big banks, they control all the money supply of the world, do you understand how crazy that is? That’s the real world. They control the money supply of the world. Look at this. Big banks and big money always support socialism, communism, oligarchy. Why do they support these types of philosophies? Why does big money always support socialism, communism, and oligarchies? Even feminism, it’s the same thing, it’s clothed in a different style. It also supports socialism. Big banks finance these things, why do they support those kinds of ideologies, cloaked in different things, but the same stuff. Pushing for socialism, communism, oligarchy, pushing for centralization of government. Why do they do that? Because it gets you a big government. If you get a big government and you are big money it’s easier to buy one big government than it is to buy millions of people. It’s easier to convince one big government to be in your pocket than three hundred million individual people. You see that? It’s so much easier. Once you can get control of the big government, and that’s why they love centralizing the army in, and centralizing the police force in, federal, everything federal. Because now you’ve got that in your pocket if you’re big money. Now you’ve got the weapons to enforce what you want. And what do you want? You want an environment which is helpful for your big corporation. You want all the laws to help you, you want all the laws to kill off your competitors, you want all the laws to benefit you and your corporation. Right? So that what this next stage, always the big businesses are there. They will also finance big religions, big megachurches, big churches like the Catholic Church. Look at the Pope who is hundred percent supporting big bankers, big international bankers, the UN agenda, the gay agenda, and all of those kinds of things. Hundred percent supporting world government, hundred percent. You will buy those kinds of people. You will infiltrate those kind of organizations to get control of those big organizations because they you’ve got power over people. And then, as you see here, you have big corporations and media. Do you remember, and this is a very important point, in Cheon Il Guk it is prohibited, it is illegal for corporations to own media companies. Now when you heard that, you are probably thinking, “Oh, that’s nice, ok.” But we don’t know the meaning why. Why is it important that the media is owned by private people? Very important. In Cheon Il Guk, the media, like CNN, and all these kinds of things, cannot be owned by companies. Does that make sense? They cannot, it’s illegal to have them owned by companies. Physical people have to own the media. So for example, in America you have, now, on Direct TV you have 200 plus channels, right? Did you know that about three or four companies own all those channels? So basically, you have three or four people, three or four big wigs in a suit are determining what you hear and what you see every day. Three or four people. It’s not even a thousand; it’s not three thousand or four thousand. It’s three or four people. Isn’t that incredible? Like the Ted Turner branch is a big one, the Rupert Murdoch branch is a big one, the Disney branch is a big one, right? You have like three or four major conglomerate corporations that own almost all the media! No wonder you get the same dumb, stupid, dumbed down message everywhere you go on TV. Families suck! Parents suck! Kids know best! Drugs are cool! Sex is fun! Free sex is good! Marriage sucks! You get the same stupid message everywhere you go. Same stupid message everywhere, why? Because three or four people own it all. Same ridiculous stuff. Stuff that tears down your happiness. Stuff that tears down your life. Why? Because if you’re happy, if you’re not happy and you’re depressed, and you’re dumbed down, you’re easy to control! You’re so easy. They just say, “Go this way,” you will go. They don’t want people who are smart, who understand the mysteries of the kingdom, who understand the dynamics of power, who understand the dynamics of centralized power versus free and responsible power. Whooooo, you see that folks? It’s all connected.
This is the system that Satan loves, he loves it. Big money, support the philosophies that support big government, supports the big corporations and the big media, the big religions, whatever. So this is very important, in Cheon Il Guk, the media. Look at how in this one, in Matthew, Jesus is talking about all this pressure from the outside, like the devil trying to snatch you away, or the devil starting to persecute you. Look at this. If you’re a young person, and you go to college or you go to high school, and you start talking about, “You know what, I think we should stop centralized banking in America,” or if you said, “I think the government is too big and the government should not be involved in marriage,” so should not be saying “gay marriage is legal,” that the government shouldn’t be involved in marriage, period. If you are a young person and you say that in school, you are going to get persecuted. This week, there’s a whole group of young people, twenty or thirty young kids at one the universities, I can’t remember exactly which one, maybe someone here has heard about this story, but a whole group of kids, Trump supporters, all different races, they gathered at their school. And there were a hundred fascists, a hundred socialists from companies like Black Lives Matter, or Move On..org, all funded by George Soros, by the way, who was a former Nazi. He’s a central banker, he’s a multi-billionaire, and he funds all these leftist campaigns, these non-profit companies. And they had a hundred of these kids come up, they violently assaulted these kids, they didn’t argue with them, they just called them “racist, racist, racist,” no arguments made. And this went viral. And so now they are meeting again in defiance, again, they’re saying, “we’re going to meet again, we have a free right to discuss who we want to support, this is supposed to be a college campus where ideas are supposed to be free, you’re not supposed to come and threaten people when they have a different opinion.” These are the kind of tactics that are used by number one, the devil, but also all the systems that support socialism, communism, totalitarianism, oligarchy, all of them use the same system. They pressure you, they torture you, they try to what? To give you tribulation. Try to what? Persecute you and make you offended. “If you support Trump, you are racist.” Right? That’s what they say, that’s the way to shut you up. But what’s great is that now there are all these black Trump supporters, all these Hispanic Trump supporters, saying “I can’t be a racist, I’m black!” They’re turning it around on the Nazis now! If you believe that having a door on your house is a good idea, at night, locking the door. If you believe that’s a good idea, well, you’re a racist! You’re a racist, you’re not letting the immigrants come in. Or you’re not letting the refugees coming into your house, you’re a racist! You’re a racist, don’t lock your door at night, leave it open! And when we send you people, let them in! Do you see how that argument is ridiculous? Anybody understands you have to lock your door at night. Right? Anybody understands that if you have too much debt, and you borrow more money, you’re going to get more debt. It’s not going to reduce your debt if you borrow more money. It’s going to go up, right? Anybody understands that you should not have the Federal Reserve, which is a private banking company, controlling all the money and the interest rates of America, and totally sucking everybody dry. We should not have that. Everybody can understand, common sense things, but in order to shut you up, and take the seed away which is planted in you, it’s what? You’re a racist, you’re a bigot, you’re supporting freedom and responsibility, you bigot! You bigot, you’re supposed to support the UN and the blue hats. Then you’re trendy and cool, and then you can stand with Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. You see how stupid people are? They’re do brain dead!
So it’s very interesting. As you get more aware of the mysteries of the kingdom and the seed of the kingdom, you get persecuted. How many know this is real? How many have been called conspiracy theorists? Yeah, you’re conspiracy theorists. Whenever somebody calls you a conspiracy theorist, just say, “Oh, that makes you a coincidence theorist. Because you believe all the evil in the world happens by chance! I actually know that there are organized mafias, and organized criminal enterprises that are organizing evil. You have to believe that all evil happens by chance. So you are actually more illogical. You are a coincidence theorist.” Kook Jin Hyung loves that term, he coined that term. But look at this, when we understand the mysteries of the kingdom you are going to be persecuted, you are going to be chased down. Did you see, even Trump, he pulled out the 28 pages of 9/11. Did you hear this? The New York Times reported about this yesterday, the Saudi government is threatening, saying “we will do an asset dump of hundreds of billions of dollars, if you blame the Saudis for 9/11.” They’re getting scared! Because anybody who has seen the 28 pages, according to senators who’ve seen it, say it’s Saudi stuff. Totally different from the narrative we’ve been brainwashed with, “Iraq did it, Iraq did it. Osama Bin Laden did it, right?” And then we went to war and killed thousands of innocent people and stole all their oil. And Dick Cheney got rich off of it, right? This is the reality but people don’t want to hear it. They don’t want to hear it. They just want to listen to the narrative they heard on CNN, and “no, that’s the truth, that’s what I heard.” But now the 28 pages scandal is coming out in the open. The New York Times reported about it yesterday. The Saudis are now threatening the US because of it. Now all of these coincidence theorists have to face reality! You see this; you see how all these things are now starting to roll? There is real power against keeping the illusion up in Satan’s world. Keep the illusion up! Keep just working and sending your taxes, in! Don’t look at the man behind the curtain! Nothing’s wrong! Just keep on working, keep on moving, and send your dang checks to the IRS! [Laughter] Right? This is what we are made to do!
But look at this. This is fascinating here. “But he that receiveth the seed of the good ground.” Look at this, hears the word, understands the word, and look at that. He bears fruit. Look at how understanding the mysteries of the kingdom, understanding the Cheon Il Guk Constitution of freedom and responsibility, when you understand it, what happens? You’re going to hear it, you’re going understand it, you’re going to start bearing fruit. You start bearing fruit. Look at this. “And bring forth some a hundred fold, sixty, and thirty.” This is a mystery at the end, right? Why does Jesus have to say some a hundred, some sixty, some thirty? It’s always been a mystery, it sounds kind of weird. “Oh, ok, we just usually say, ok, ok, and just read on.” But this is a very important point in Cheon Il Guk. Very important point. It’s actually a hugely important point, and we’ll get to it again. But this is a very important point. The whole difference between socialism, communism, totalitarianism and a free system is that socialism and communism promise what? Equal pay, equal outcomes. So it promotes jealousy. “That person made sixty and you made fifty-four. Unfair! That person made a hundred and fifty and you made one hundred!’ You see, so socialism and communism always promote equal outcomes. Now, on God’s side, no, it doesn’t promote equal outcomes, it promotes what? Equal opportunity. Everybody has opportunity. But look, some will have, in bearing fruit, will bear a hundred fruit, some will bear sixty fruit, some will be thirty fruit. That is dependent upon how you serve people. Everybody has the same opportunity to enter into that free exchange, does that make sense? But there will be differences based on how you serve people. If you create an incredible aquaponic system that some of the guys here are creating, right? And you are making that system, and it’s great, and you have a customer base that you are developing, and you are racking your brain everyday about customers, and how to bring the price down and make it better for them, make it more beautiful and more efficient and more productive, right? They are going to keep blessing you with that relationship. They are going to keep buying your aquaponic system. They are going to want to support your small business. Even if you get to have a medium sized business they will still want to support you because you are crazy about your customers, you are crazy about serving people, you are crazy about living for the sake of others, you are crazy about proving somebody with good things that help their life in a real way. And so you will be blessed with a hundred. Right? Now somebody who doesn’t rack their brain as much, somebody does another aquaponic thing, but he doesn’t serve his customers as well. Well, the customers will say, “You know what; I really want to bless that guy who does it really good.” And they go and bless they guy with a hundred. You see there are different outcomes but equal opportunities. In fact in free systems there are almost unlimited opportunities, not like now where we’re becoming communist, where there are no opportunities, you can’t even get a job anywhere now. Very hard to find any jobs, right? Whereas when it’s really free, and there is a lot of prosperity because of that free association and free trade, well if you don’t like your boss here, you can always move. You have mobility. You can move and get a job with another company where you like that culture better. That helps who? That benefits who? The companies or you? It benefits you. You see that? So look at this, that’s the difference. They will bear fruit, even the good ones, but look, one hundred, sixty, thirty, depending on how much we live for the sake of others, and how much we serve and love other people. How much we honestly transact with people. How much we abide by our contracts. You see how the kingdom works? The kingdom is real, folks. Even if you learn the mysteries of the kingdom before the kingdom is a physical place on earth, you will still be blessed by these kingdom principles. Amen. Oh, my goodness, I went backwards, I got so excited.
Now Matthew 13, look at this. Now he says this another way. Another parable he put forth. “The Kingdom is like a grain of mustard, which a man took, and sowed in his field;” It’s the least of the seeds, but when it’s grown it’s the greatest. It’s the biggest tree. And look at this. The birds of the air come and lodge in the branches, let’s focus on that last part. Look at this, this big tree. Very small. Think about it, in the fallen history, it’s always been one totalitarianism after another. Human beings have lived under totalitarian rules forever since the Fall. Forever. We’ve always been under the archangel, always. Whether you go to Assyria, or whether you go to Babylon, or whether you went to Rome, or whether you went to China, the emperor in China, or the feudal lords in Japan, everywhere is the same system. Different cultures, but the same system. Same oligarchical, tyrannical system, right? Even Africa, right? The Philippines, everywhere you had the same systems, over and over again. No real difference, different names, little different cultural stuff, but really the same system. Right? Now look at this. This is interesting. Cheon Il Guk starts as a seed. Very tiny. Everybody’s laughing at it. It’s tiny. It doesn’t look like it’s going to make a big impact. Everybody says, “that little mustard seed, I want a big walnut seed, or I want a big plum seed, give me something with some meat on it, an avocado seed, that baby’s going to grow big!” Don’t underestimate the small seed! That small mustard seed comes in and it becomes the biggest tree. Look at this, this is amazing. Did it say that when the tree becomes big only the beautiful sparrows can nest in it? It says look, the birds of the air. Now have you ever heard of a vulture? Is that a bird of the air? Have you ever heard of an eagle or a falcon? Are those birds of the air? They are predators. They are predator birds. Ok, they are predator birds. So you are not only going to get insect-eating brown and white sparrows and finches! In Cheon Il Guk. You also are going to get some other predator birds. Isn’t that interesting? Now look at that, in the context of our free system, the free nature of Cheon Il Guk, the free and responsible nature of Cheon Il Guk, right? Because it forbids all those other things that lead to socialism, we talked about two weeks ago — centralized banking, centralized education, centralized monetary supply, centralized military and police forces, all those centralized things are illegal. Not allowed. Against the law. The birds of the air. All sorts of birds come. And lodge in the branches of this mustard tree. This is why it’s so important in Cheon Il Guk to be free and responsible, and also to have the ability to have situational awareness. That’s why the second human right is the right to defend yourself. And it’s cultivated from a young age. Because this ability to identify predators and threats against your own self, your own person, your spouse, your children, your neighbor, etc. is an essential key of the security of Cheon Il Guk. Does that make sense? Because it is a free place, people and evil people can also be there. Just like we saw in the parable of the wheat and the tares. Evil is also allowed to remain there. Remember, until the harvest when they are separated from. So we mustn’t be idealistic when we think of the kingdom, thinking only trustworthy people will be there. No, most of the people will be trustworthy, and they will be rewarded for being trustworthy. But there will still be bad people. Because there will still be free choice. There is freedom. So people with free choice, some will choose evil. Right? But it won’t be a system where you are forced to choose evil because everything is centralized in the government and they are running the drugs in your town, and they are destroying your neighborhood by giving free things and just decimating your population. And you divorce rate is skyrocketing, and your illicit child-bearing rate is skyrocketing. Well, you’ve been almost forced into that system. Right? So to have an understanding of Cheon Il Guk, the ability to decipher good and evil, to be able to tell what is a threat and what is not a threat, this is critical, because all sorts of birds will lodge in the branches of this mustard tree. We must not be idealistic thinking there will be no evil people in Cheon Il Guk or in the kingdom of heaven. All of the parables show that there will be, okay? But it’s important for us, and the angels will come, and we’ll look at another parable here. He also talked about, it’s like leavened bread, it’s like a piece of bread which a woman took and hid. Leaven is like yeast, right? And it’s put into three measures of meal, or bread, flour, until the whole is leavened. Isn’t this interesting? What happened in the Revolutionary War in America? It’s interesting; Jesus here is talking about three measures. He’s talking about three portions of that flour. Now it’s interesting, that yeast which is a tiny portion is put into that bread. What happened in the Revolutionary War? You had about a third of the population that said, “No we can’t split from Britain. We’re a colony of Britain, that’s our heritage, that’s our root.” Right? You had about a third of the population who was ambivalent, “You know, I hate politics, I have no interest.” And then you had another third of the population that says, “We need to be free! I’ll pay for people who will fight.” And about three percent of the people fought in the Revolutionary War, but about thirty percent supported them. Isn’t it interesting how it’s divided up into thirds? Just like this cornmeal? It’s divided up into three measures. Three portions, but it’s interesting. The yeast comes in, and it takes over everything. Notice this, the yeast comes in and the whole bread is leavened. This is very important to understand. Remember, in a socialist, communist country, system, they always say, “He makes more than you, be jealous of him, help us get in power so we can steal from him and give to you.” This is what they do all the time, right? But look, in a free system, they say what? No, we want free opportunity. Why? Because that lets the entire water level rise up and all the boats will rise up on the water level. So you may have a small boat, you may have a big boat, a medium sized boat, but all the boats get risen up when the water level goes up. So when the standard of living for everybody goes up, everybody benefits, you understand? So the poor in America are rich in other countries that are really poor. Because the water level here has been able to rise up, well look at this. The whole bread also rises up with the yeast. When you apply Cheon Il Guk Constitution into society, into the world which is the flour, and you apply it, the whole bread starts rising. Does that make sense? The whole bread starts rising. Everybody’s standard of living gets better. Now you may have little bigger portions of yeast in there, and you may have a small boat here, and big boat here, but who cares? Everybody’s getting better. Does that make sense? Now imaging if we can do that for the whole world. Everybody’s standard of living goes up. You see that? When Cheon Il Guk’s Constitution is applied, that little yeast will start taking over that bread. And the whole bread will start rising! Ooooh, I’ve got the Holy Ghost right now, praise God!!!
In Matthew 13, Jesus talks about another one. He talks about the kingdom of heaven is like a treasure that’s hidden in a field, which when a man found it he hides it, and he goes and sells all that he has and he buys that field. Isn’t that interesting? There’s a treasure inside a field. Then this man, he’s so happy, he goes and sells everything, and then what does he do? He buys that field. What does that mean? He invests in that field. Not a random field, he invests in a field where the treasure is. Does that make sense? You want to invest in a field where the treasure is. So if you want to invest, you want to invest where the Cheon Il Guk Constitution is, because if it’s there that place will start growing in prosperity. In blessing. What did Jesus say in the beginning, “he that had this knowledge of this mystery, even more will be given unto him, an abundance.” Isn’t that interesting? So we can see this happening in our own community. We started with just a handful of people here, but we have people all over the country and world wanting to move here, right? Come to this field, why? Because there is a treasure here, there’s the Cheon Il Guk Constitution, the mystery of the kingdom is here. It’s here. Matthew 13, again, the kingdom of heaven is likened unto a merchant man seeking goodly pearls, who when he found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it. This is very important. This is no longer the kingdom is like a treasure in a field, he’s saying the kingdom is like a merchant. This is interesting. The kingdom is like a merchant. Remember Kook Jin Hyung was talking about the kingdom economy? The kingdom of heaven, Cheon Il Guk economy of the constitution is a producer economy. It’s a merchant economy. It’s a producer economy. So this merchant is coming in, notice he didn’t go in and steal the pearl. Did he go in and steal the pearl? No, he didn’t do that. That would be supporting big government! [laughter] If he wanted to steal the pearl, just make a big government, and call in a law and take the pearl. That’s what all these big banks do. But he went in and what? He sold all he had and he bought it. He made an honest transaction for that pearl. He didn’t steal it. He didn’t steal the pearl. He bought the pearl. He made an honest transaction for that pearl. This is critical for Cheon Il Guk, this is like one of the core economic values. Honest transactions. Transparent transactions. Right? Being able to abide with people, deal with people who abide by their contracts. Keep their promises, run transparent organizations and movements and houses, etc. Right? This is like a critical, fundamental economic principle of Cheon Il Guk which is necessary for real trade and real win/wins to occur. Does that make sense? It is a producer based economy. How much can I serve you? How much can I help you? How much can I love you, is the person that gets rewarded. Isn’t that interesting? There’s an invisible hand in Cheon Il Guk. Adam Smith didn’t know what he was talking about exactly, but he knew there was an invisible hand! In Cheon Il Guk.
And look at this, this last one. Jesus was talking about the kingdom of heaven which is like a net which gathers every kind of fish, and is drawn to the shore. It’s gathered into the vessels, but look, the bad are cast away. So shall it be at the end of the world, the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just. We talked about this in the wheat and the tares. Remember? In Cheon Il Guk there will be the third generation that Socrates talked about, the spoiled generation that will become communist and socialist, right? That have been spoiled by their parents who are lawyers and doctors, and they are totally spoiled, they just want things for free, and so they say, “Let’s make a big government that gives us things for free until we die.” And they ruin the country. Socrates talked about it; the third generation will collapse, right? So this is the same thing, we know that that generation will arise, it’s going to arise, it’s inevitable. That spoiled generation will arise, but it’s against to law to make centralized things in Cheon Il Guk, you can’t make centralized education, you can’t make centralized welfare, you can’t make centralized banking, you can’t bring in the central bankers of Europe and different places of the world. You can’t let one corporation control the monetary supply. You see this? It’s illegal. And there is no amendment process; they can’t change the law to bring in communism. Does it make sense? So look at this, as they try to do things and try to make violent revolutions, well, the angels start coming out, when they try to make violent revolutions, the angels start flying out of their homes, and who are the angels? They are the peace police and the peace militia. They are the citizens that come out, they say, “oh, that’s violent protest, we will defend our neighborhood and we will chase you out.” Do you see? Then said, he unto them, therefore every scribe which is instructed in the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is a householder.” Notice, he didn’t say say tenant, he said house owner. Owner. You remember the pledge of Cheon Il Guk? Every single pledge starts with “I, an owner of Cheon Il Guk.” “an owner of Cheon Il Guk.” Remember this? I, an owner. Not a serf or a slave of Cheon Il Guk, which Family Fed is trying to teach now. “Be happy with your new pledge, I a slave of Cheon Il Guk.” No. Father gave, “I, an owner of Cheon Il Guk.” Co-heirs with Christ, owner of Cheon Il Guk, which bringeth out from his treasure, things new and old. All things promised to Adam, that Jesus promised, they come out of that treasure, when the owners of Cheon Il Guk come and chase the archangel out. The old covenant that was given to Adam, that old kingdom that was given, fell and lost. Jesus brought it again, he said the kingdom must come. Again, when the householder, the kingdom is like a man that is a householder, an owner of Cheon Il Guk. An owner of Cheon Il Guk. From that treasure comes both new and old. The fulfillment of both new and old, what Father called the completed testament and covenant. Which of course is the Cheon Il Guk Constitution, is the covenant between God and the people of Cheon Il Guk. Does that make sense.
Let’s look at Cheong Seong Gyeong 877 to wrap it up.
“You may feel that you are only going through hardships and gradually declining, but actually you are moving higher and higher. Unification Church becomes bigger by being persecuted. In a family of ten the one who is opposed by the others, and continuously endures for the common good, can become the master of that family. In other words, that person becomes an owner in the Kingdom of Heaven.”
And we’re not talking about the common good of socialism. We’re talking about the common good of freedom and responsibility. Empowering your children to learn to clean up after themselves. Learn how to defend themselves. Learn how to skin a buck and catch some trout. Learn how climb up trees. Learn how to do mathematics by looking at the stars. Learn the real exciting things of this adventurous life, not the artificial, superficial, technological prison of video games and Korean dramas. Real stuff that makes you feel alive, and makes your blood move. And praise the Glory of God. Real stuff.
You see that? When we reflect of the kingdom, there is joy. Ok, SOS, come on up guys, let’s worship God as we lift Him up. Let’s pray for the kingdom to come, amen? The kingdom to come and all the mysteries, the mysteries of the kingdom to be given unto all who can have eyes to see and ears to hear. Amen? Amen.
