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)

31. In order to have Children’s Day, we must enable the children who have gone astray to cling on to God from the point where they went astray until they have corrected their wrongdoing. The establishment of Children’s Day signifies the appearance of sons and daughters who are able to rectify the fact that they lost God due to the wrongful actions of God’s children. Once those children emerge, they must find God by means of establishing Children’s Day. Then God can rise to His place of glory and rejoice. When God rejoices, His sons and daughters rejoice, and all things rejoice as well. (21-186, 1968.11.20)

32. Why do we need Children’s Day? We need Children’s Day because we lost that day. Who lost that day? Adam and Eve lost it. Therefore, it is Adam and Eve who must recover it. Since Adam and Eve made a mistake and created a hole, they must patch it up. So while the first Adam was the one who ruined things, the second Adam became the one who corrected things. The first Adam became the father whobrought things to ruin, and the second Adam, Jesus, became the Father who brought salvation. (21-190, 1968.11.20)

33. That we inaugurated Children’s Day in the Unification Church means that we dug up the sinful seeds sowed by Adam and Eve and made the foundation to liberate all humankind from evil. Prior to this, because Children’s Day had not been established, all things of creation could not be liberated. They languished in the realm of lamentation, and God Himself also languished in that realm. As long asChildren’s Day was not inaugurated, we could not seek and find the Day of All Things, and all things of creation could not reach a position to be glorified. This left all things in bitter resentment. Moreover, God could not rejoice on seeing the arrival of His day of glory. All these outcomes resulted from not having established Children’s Day. (21-186, 1968.11.20)

‎34. For fallen human beings, Children’s Day is the greatest among the holy days. It is ‎greater than Parents’ Day because it is the day for Parents to recover their authority. Satan had ‎trampled on human history for six thousand years, but on Children’s Day we chase him out and ‎hold up the flag of victory. Fallen people must receive that day if they are to enter the heavenly ‎kingdom and attend the Heavenly Parent. We Unification Church members cannot attend the ‎Heavenly Parent only by ourselves. To attend Him we must build a bridge for others to do the ‎same. Furthermore, we must build a bridge for those who have gone to the spirit world, both men ‎and women. This day is not only for Unification Church members; it is a day for all people of the ‎world to mark and celebrate forever and ever. Children’s Day is indeed the most blessed day for ‎fallen humankind. (21-202, 1968.11.20)‎
