True Children’s Day

Excerpts from Cheon Seong Gyeong (2014)

30. After God created all things in heaven and on earth, He was to have welcomed Children’s Day centering on Adam and Eve. If He could have welcomed Children’s Day at that time, then He would have gone on to establish Parents’ Day, the Day of All Things and God’s Day. In light of this, what is Children’s Day all about? It is the day when we can be victorious as children and reach the position of universal glory. However, because the human ancestors fell, ever since the time of Adam not even one person has entered the glorious state that God would have permitted them to enter had they succeeded in aligning themselves with God’s Will. Until that day, the purpose of history has been to restore humankind, or to save humankind, by pulling them back and placing them in the original position where they were at the beginning. This has been God’s providential history of restoration. We should not celebrate Children’s Day simply because it is a day different from other days. Children’s Day is when we children celebrate that we, who due to the Fall could not enter the state where we could partake in God’s glory, can finally for the first time in history abide in the state where we can participate in His glory. (21-181, 1968.11.20)

True Children’s Day – 5 November 2021

FFWPU Co-Founder Mrs Hak Ja Han Moon, 15 November 2020

About this holy day

Declared October 1st, 1960 of the Heavenly Calendar (November 19th-solar).

This declaration was made on the day that the foundation on which the fallen people could be reborn through the True Parents into God’s lineage was established.

The fall of Adam and Eve, the first ancestors of humankind, occurred due to their adulterous relationship with the archangel. As a result, humankind had come to be born under the lineage of Satan. Overcoming the unimaginable trials of the cross, True Parents established “Parents’ Day.” On November 19th, 1960 (October 1st, by Heavenly Calendar) True Parents also declared “Children’s Day.”

“Children’s Day” represents the day that the foundation, on which fallen humankind could be born again by receiving the blessing from the True Parents was established globally and cosmically by the victorious True Parents. In other words, this day should be commemorated because it became possible that humankind could change their lineage from Satan’s lineage to God’s lineage. This established a procedure by which humankind could be registered as children of God from this day forward. In 1994, the Holy Day was renamed “True Children’s Day.
