We have two upcoming Holy Days to look forward to: Chil Il Jeol, Declaration of God’s Eternal Blessing on the Sunday 8th August and Chil Pal Jeol, Declaration of the Cosmic Sabbath for the Parents of Heaven and Earth on Saturday 14th August.
Chil Il Jeol – Declaration of God’s Eternal Blessing – Sunday 8th August 2021
Background on Chil Il Jeol:
“On July 1, 1991, True Parents conducted the Ceremony to Proclaim God’s Eternal Blessing and designated the day as Chil Il Jeol (7-1 Day). True Father said that this day was a historic turning point. He stated that now he had restored the authority of Adam as the elder son that was lost due to the Fall, and therefore we were entering the original world where the archangel was to have raised Adam to the point of maturity. He also said that on this day the physical world and the spirit world were completely transformed to take the right path, which meant that we were entering a new world and that the era of God’s victory and True Parents’ glory had arrived. He further explained that he proclaimed God’s eternal blessing based on His eternal love not only for the democratic and communist worlds but also for the religious world.” – Chambumo Gyeong, Book 12.
Why have God’s eternal blessings not been realized? The three great blessings were not fulfilled due to the emergence of the false parents of humankind. In order to restore that through indemnity, the True Parents of humankind must come and stand in the position to settle accounts for everything in providential history. Then they must declare, “We are standing in the position where we can shout ‘mansei’ for God’s eternal blessings.” Otherwise, those children, tribes, nations and world under their command cannot stand confidently in front of God. For this reason, I am declaring that God’s eternal blessings are once again available to humankind. This is Chil Il Jeol. (232-009, 1992.07.01) – Ceremonies and Holy Days, Book 11.
In 1991, just before the beginning of 1992, I completed a forty-year period in my life. Through that course of trials and tribulations, I re-indemnified what I initially did as I walked through the seven-year course from 1945 to 1952. In this way I finally cleared everything, all the debts of human history. Therefore, the time is coming when I will be able to introduce Mother as the Mother of this world, and Mother’s children as the children of the world. All this can be done through Chil Il Jeol. This is what Chil Il Jeol is about. We lost the realm of the chosen people, the First Israel, and we lost Christianity, which is also the realm of the chosen people, the Second Israel. What was lost must be restored. By restructuring the family, we must restore families, tribes, peoples, and even nations so that they can belong to Heaven. For this we must reach up to the national level in Satan’s world. (286-036, 1997.07.01) – Ceremonies and Holy Days, Book 11.
Chil Pal Jeol – Declaration of the Cosmic Sabbath for the Parents of Heaven and Earth – Saturday 14th August 2021
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. Chil Pal Jeol (Day of the Declaration of the Realm of the Cosmic Sabbath for the Parents of Heaven and Earth) (232-035, 1992.07.01) – Ceremonies and Holy Days, Book 11.
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.
We hope these extracts are informative and that you enjoy celebrating these two Holy Days!
