The following is a translation of Dr. Hak Ja Han’s remarks from Nov. 21, 2018, at the National Sports Stadium in Harare, Zimbabwe, at the Peace and Family Festival.

You who have received the Blessing today have gained the qualifications to go through the door to enter heaven.

Human beings, whether in the past or the present, have longed for a united world of peace. Yet that dream is steadily growing more distant. The 200-some nations that hold the 7.6 billion people of the world have borders.

The United Nations came into being 70 years ago for the sake of peace and unity. However, that U.N. has been unable to fulfill its responsibilities. We are living in a world today in which conflicts and barriers between religion, ideology and culture are steadily increasing. How can we achieve a unified world?

We cannot achieve this with human efforts or human knowledge alone. This is why we must understand and know the Creator of this universe, God.



The Blessing event today becomes the path for a united world. Humanity must discard all the customs of the past and find the path heading toward a unified world centered on God. Several rivers converge to form a great waterfall and that great stream of water eventually leads to the great ocean. There can be no hope in things that do not follow God’s cyclical laws of nature.

For the past 2,000 years, since Jesus went to the cross, Christian culture has dominated the world. Yet until now, Christians did not know Jesus’ essence. They did not know who they should be waiting for in order to welcome the Messiah.

Blessed families who have received the Blessing today, I said that it is through the True Parents that we can have today’s Blessing. What is the ultimate destination of Christians and people in other religions? If they wish for a peaceful, united world, they must have the qualifications to attend our Heavenly Parent, the owner of peace.

You who received the Blessing today have received the qualification to be a citizen of Cheon Il Guk, the place where Heavenly Parent can embrace us. However, with this comes responsibilities.

European Christians spread Jesus’ name to the world. Yet, they did not know Jesus. Jesus clearly said, “Love your neighbor as yourself.” However, those who went out into the world put the interests of their own nations first and harmed many nations. In particular, they did many wrongs here in Africa. They were bent solely on their own interests and the interests of their own countries.

The only ones who can correct the past wrongs in history are True Parents. Earlier I said several rivers converge to form a waterfall, which leads to the ocean. Likewise, all religions must head toward the same destination as well — that great ocean. The people who can guide all religions to that great ocean are True Parents and God’s only begotten daughter, True Mother.

I pray that all the Blessed couples born here today will become eternal, true Blessed couples who can open the doors to the kingdom of heaven on earth and the kingdom of heaven in heaven.
