Peace Message and Prayer of Bishop Noel Jones at the 5th Rally of Hope

Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, Heads of state, faith leaders, parliamentarians, and all other leaders, I would like to say, first of all, congratulations to Mother Moon on this 5th Rally of Hope. Millions are watching via satellite, actually in 150 nations. Also, I would like to remember her birthday and give her a birthday greeting. Certainly, to you, Mother, and to your late husband the Reverend Moon. Both your birthdays fall on the same day and so today Father Moon would be a hundred and one and I will not tell your age.

We thank God because the Mother of Peace is touching the world with love and peace and is having a great impact on all of us, leaders, heads of state all around the world on every continent, and certainly, the Holy Spirit is bringing her enemies together. She is living out Jesus' commission and that is to love our enemies. This also is the anniversary, the 30th anniversary year of hers and Father Moon’s historic visit to North Korea.

Thirty years ago, this year, she and Father Moon went to North Korea in spite of the dangers. They went to encourage the North Korean leader to bring peace. Yes! Man has always, since the first family, resorted to violence to handle whatever grievances he had and to seek advantages over his fellow man. This speaks of the function of those who walk with God. One of the Beatitudes that is germane and appropriate, “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.”

Peacemaking is a mode of response to hostility or other destabilizing activities. That is why the Beatitude announces the one who cultivates the love for peace is one who is close to God. To seek peace and pursue it now gives me the right to be called a son of God. And so, as I come to a conclusion, I want to let you know that whenever we deal with God, we understand that God is one, the number of unity, where there is no divisive element of any kind because, at the end of the day, “Hear O Israel, the Lord thy God is one God”. So, as we lead others, we must let the world know “there is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.”

That is what Paul said to the Galatians Church. He is infected with this unity. There can be no internal conflict in God or the sons of God. A double-minded man is unstable in all his ways. But peace begins with me. Internal peace, and I exude it to everyone around me. Therefore, it is important to understand that whenever there is any pain or disquieting in my soul, I have to go to God, remove it, cleanse myself, so that I can come out and be that Son of God who operates in peacemaking.

Finally, I would like to say, True Mother, please be encouraged as the Mother of Peace. You, and your unique calling of God, has in every way and in every step moved the hearts of humanity to become one in God. You have touched us deeply in every manner. You have touched us, every part of humanity, all over the world. And everyone is beginning to see the hope of God's Kingdom unfolding. And it is all because of what God has used you to do. Thank you, True Mother. Be strong, be encouraged. God is using you in a great way.
