The Significance of the Forty Day Separation from Satan

Hyo Jin Moon Belvedere, Tarrytown, NY USA March 5, 1989 Unofficial Notes from 6:00 am Speech

The ideal being is one who has shim jung in the subject position and the physical body in the object position. In the secular world, people's lives are based only on external ability. They unite only according to external things. The ability people have is the dominating factor that rules man today. If I have ability in music, that becomes the subject that dominates my life. Whatever you choose to be, whether it is a politician, lawyer, etc., you will become one with that ability. Becoming one with and following only the physical body has false value.

The reason the fall occurred was because Satan yearned for Adam and Eve's position. He yearned for certain physical attributes. Satan did not look at God's love from a holistic view, only externally. Heavenly Father loved Lucifer. He had a special purpose for the angelic world. Why do we need the angelic world? Mankind was in the position to receive Heavenly Father's love. Mankind must have the ability to become like Him. In order for Adam to inherit Heavenly Father's eternal love and build the kingdom of heaven on earth, he needed to have some basis to reach spiritual perfection. Having subjugated and dominated the spiritual world with love, Adam and Eve would ultimately reach Heavenly Father's level. Heavenly Father needed to unite with mankind (His children) to reach His ideal and to substantiate His ideal and love. In order for Adam and Eve to receive and understand Heavenly Father's heart, they must have that same experience as a base. The angelic world was necessary so that Adam and Eve could become the physical embodiment of God. Through that, God would have physical dominion over the world. The angelic world was absolutely necessary for Adam and Eve and for Heavenly Father to reach perfection.

The angel was in the position of object to mankind, but the angel subjugated Adam and Eve in the act of the fall. We can see the clear result of the act. The fall occurred because Satan was longing for the position of Adam and Eve. Adam and Eve were receiving a different love than what he was receiving. The object longed for the subject position. There was a reversal of roles. Satan tempted Adam and Eve in order to somehow subjugate them. He thought he could become one with Adam and Eve and then receive that kind of love from Heavenly Father himself. Tempting Adam and Eve absolutely deviated from God's ideal.

Love encompasses everything. The creation, humanity and all things exists within love. The ideal is for mankind's physical body to unite with his shim jung. I am not denying that we have a physical body. Father has all these physical attributes too, but these physical things must belong to Heavenly Father, the essence of whom is shim jung. If you lived like that you would look at each other with the eyes of love. Ability in music and poetry all belong in the realm of love. None of that is the same as love, but they exist within love. The Archangel has rejected this ideal. That is why many of you still have that kind of thinking. That is the fallen nature. We have to go back to the ideal relationship of subject and object. The whole restoration process consists of trying to establish this ideal unity of shim jung as subject united with the physical body which is object.

The forty day separation period is part of our lives. We need to understand the importance of it. Do you know why we practice it?

Let's look at a failure that occurred in response to the forty day separation period. The symbol of the forty day period at the time of Noah clearly shows the claiming of ten generations. The forty day flood was the foundation to restore the vertical fall. It was vertical indemnity carried out horizontally. It is important for mankind to establish restoration with the physical world centered on the key players (central figures) who are to take responsibility. Within their lifetime, restoration has to take place. After the forty days separation through the flood, the world's situation was the same as it's time of origin. It symbolized the primary state of the Garden of Eden. Within the garden, there has to be an ideal subject/object relationship and four position foundation. For 120 years Noah built the ark. Through the forty day flood (separation) the world was cleansed. It came back to the original position. From this time, every action had to go forward according to the principle and Heavenly Father's ideal.

Noah was in the position to restore the Cain and Abel situation too. The reason Cain and Abel first came about was to restore Adam and Eve's failure. Through their own actions man could be separated from evil. Because Cain killed Abel, man annulled Heavenly Father's action to restore mankind. There was then no way, no foundation for man to reciprocate with God. There was a foundation of faith accomplished through Abel's offering, but the foundation of substance did not exist since Cain killed Abel. Through man's hands, God was denied once again.

This very act o
