Rev. Moon teaches that in blessed marital union, the sexual organs are the Holy of Holies, where husband and wife meet God through each other.
In the Catholic marriage sacrament, the betrothed man and woman are priests to each other. In Rev. Moon’s view, True Mother is the high priest representing all women. He declared, “we have entered the age where Eve has the responsibility of high priest in place of men. …in the Unification Church we have placed a woman, representing all women, in a position to fulfill the responsibility of a worldwide high priest.”
We have entered the age where Eve has the responsibility of high priest in place of men.
Let’s see how this works. The Old Testament priest was the earthly representative of God. He received the sacrificial offering, representing everything the individual, family or nation. By sincerely offering the sacrifice to represent everything, the giver separated from Satan. The offering took on the giver’s sin. On that condition, God could accept the offering and claim the giver.
The nation of Israel should have offered itself entirely and unconditionally to Jesus. Thus Israel would have separated from Satan and God could have claimed her. Because Israel did not, Jesus had to serve as both the priest and offering. His body, representing Israel, taking on our sin, died on the cross, offered to God. God claimed his spirit and sent the Holy Spirit in the position of his new body, flesh of his flesh, bone of his bones—his Bride.
The Unification Church, representing world Christianity, offered its entire physical and spiritual foundation to True Parents. Thus it separated Christianity from Satan and God could claim her. God claimed True Father and sent True Mother in the position of True Father’s body, flesh of his flesh, bone of his bones—his Bride.
All the world’s women will belong to Father, as the representative of Adam, through Mother.
Thus, as Father once declared, “all the world’s women will belong to Father, as the representative of Adam, through Mother. All men are in the archangel position. By restoring all …women into True Parents’ family, men, in the children’s position to those women, will be restored through them. …all men in the archangel position follow Eve. This is the universal turning point. This is Mother’s Age.”
This is why, “in the Unification Church we have placed a woman, representing all women, in a position to fulfill the responsibility of a worldwide high priest.”
