Heavenly True Parent’s Day 2019 Message
February 5, 2019 / 1:1 CIG7
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Happy 52nd Heavenly True Parent’s Day! We would like to express our deep gratitude to you for your hard work and dedication during the past year, and invite you to joyfully start the Seventh Year of Cheon Il Guk by the heavenly calendar.
The first God’s Day in 1968 was a significant providential moment for our Heavenly Parent. Although God had always held the ideal of a True Family and a world full of his children and grandchildren living in peace and close to his heart, He simply could not realize this ideal by himself. True Father shared with us:
God’s Day could be established for the first time because Mother and I together established the foundation for a decisive victory over Satan’s world, internally and externally. If the original Adam and Eve had formed such a love connection with God, God’s Day would have started in the Garden of Eden. Instead, I could proclaim God’s Day only after the end of the first 7-year course. At that time, True Parents’ relationship attained the standard of perfection, fully in accord with God’s love. God’s Day was inaugurated based on this foundation.
(Chambumo Gyeong, Book 5, Chapter 3, P. 519, number 7)
Today we also celebrate the 60th True Parents’ Day and the 18th Anniversary of the Enthronement Ceremony of God’s Kingship. And of course, in less than a week, we will be celebrating True Parents’ Birthday.
This is also the time to bring our offerings before Heavenly Parent and True Parents. Let’s pour out our love and gratitude for the many blessings that God continues to give America! And make our first step of the New Heavenly Year be that of giving our very best to God first, and offer our gift to True Parents as well.
Let us enter this year thanking our Heavenly Parent and True Parents, and determine to absolutely fulfill True Mother’s request of all families, boldly proclaim True Parents and share the Blessing with everyone in America.
God Bless you and your families,
Dr. Ki Hoon Kim
