Chil Pal Jeol – Declaration of the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath
Background of Chil Pal Jeol:
Heavenly Father, You have been pioneering this path alone, alone, utterly alone. Still, under Your guidance I have fought to prepare a haven of Sabbath rest for You. Struggling during that 40-year history I brought victory to You on every level, by making havens where You can rest in individuals, havens where You can rest with husbands and wives, havens where You can rest in the tribe, the nation, the world and the cosmos. I have been fighting to make the creation into the ideal environment where You can dwell and freely act as You will. Now I have surmounted every rugged hill. Therefore, today, centering on True Parents, we can welcome the amazing age when we can proclaim the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath. (286-080, 1997/08/09) – Chambumo Gyeong, Book 12.
God blessed Adam to fulfill the three great blessings in his family, “Be fruitful, multiply, and have dominion over all things of creation in heaven and on earth,” but he was not able to fulfill them. However, for the first time since the beginning of history, I recovered God’s blessings. Then, standing on top of the world, I victoriously proclaimed His eternal blessings for humankind. On the foundation of this proclamation, Mother could finally appear in public on the world stage. While it took forty to fifty years for me to reach this position, Mother reached it in only nine months. Based on the standard that Mother attained by uniting with me in absolute obedience, I could then present Mother and proclaim women’s liberation. Now, in front of Mother’s perfected historical standard, we men and women on earth can be in complete oneness with True Parents based on God’s true love. Thereby we can establish this victorious foundation all over the world. It is truly amazing that we can proclaim the victory of God’s eternal blessing, after years in the trenches undergoing circumstances of opposition from nations and the world.

The heavenly kingdom has been empty. Adam’s family could not enter it, nor could all the generations of our ancestors. The True Parents, by being perfected as the world-level ancestors of humankind, must reorganize the first, second and all subsequent generations, and fill the hitherto empty heavenly kingdom. Once they have done so and reversed the way the world moves by 180 degrees, God can be as active as He pleases in the heavenly kingdom of freedom and liberation, because Satan will be gone. Chil Pal Jeol is the day to declare the realm of liberation, where God has no obstacles in His coming and going from the individual to the level of the physical world and the heavenly world. It is the day we proclaim the Realm of Cosmic Sabbath for the Parents of Heaven and Earth. (286-112, 1997.08.09) – Ceremonies and Holy Days, Book 11.
