Many know that Reverend Sun Myung Moon, the founder of the Unification movement, passed away last September at the age of 92. However, the plans that he set into motion are very much alive, in the hearts of individual believers, as well as in providential initiatives going forward on a global level.
It is the faith of those consider Reverend and Mrs. Moon to be the True Parents, which in essence also encompasses the mission of the return of Christ, that the unfolding of God's kingdom on earth can no longer be stopped. How quickly the world of peace and goodness is manifested though will depend on each one of us. We are the ones who can help shorten the time, or conversely, if we fail to recognize and support God's providential work, we could cause more delay. But either way, the spiritual and substantial victories that Reverend Moon won during the last half a century now guarantee that the forces of evil must retreat. Satan's realm is crumbling, both in the spiritual world and in this world. We may not see it, but that is the reality. I believe that the turmoil we see in the world today are signs that extraordinary things are happening in the spiritual dimension having to do with the battle between God and Satan-a battle that Satan is losing.
For the world at large, February 22nd will likely be a day like any other. But this is a providential day that marks the beginning of a new era. It will be celebrated in the Unification movement as Foundation Day. We believe that this year, 2013, will eventually be recognized as Year One of the Kingdom of Heaven. Remember, as Jesus said, God's kingdom is like a mustard seed. It starts out very small, so small that it is ignored or not even seen. "The Kingdom of Heaven is within you." But, when it is fully grown it is a tremendous tree.
The kingdom of heaven starts with each one of as individuals, when our hearts and lives are transformed by the power of the truth and God's love. It must manifest further in families, for a family, in it's original form, resembles the nature of God himself. Eventually, this kingdom will become visible, as even entire nations must kick off the structures of power linked behind the scenes to the "ancient serpent". This process has begun and the Foundation Day of God's kingdom is upon us.
