Cain and Martha: The Rejected Ones Come Home

women_play_instrumentIn Heilsgeschichte, or Principle of Restoration, there is always a child that is left behind or a woman that is less loved. At some point in history–and I believe this point is now, namely, after 2012–there comes a time when a reckoning must be made with all of these children left behind and women who received lesser love.

Examples abound. In the family of Adam, Cain was left behind. So, I use “Cain” as the prototype for all of these children (or nations) that have been left behind. They have been in the periphery of Heilsgeschichte. The Principle of Restoration has left them by the wayside.

The reason why the children have been separated into Cain and Abel–where Cain is rejected and Abel is accepted–is that human beings have become the embodiment of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. God will work with the good (Abel) and will reject the evil (Cain).

But of course, God does not really ever reject anyone. The Heilsgeschichte is a process that will, without a doubt, bring everybody home into the realm of God’s love. This separation into Cain and and Abel is, therefore, just a process. The end-goal is the blending of human beings in such a way that all will be God’s children.

Woman_covered_upThe time for this grand harmonization has arrived. But before I go into that, I will deal with the separation of women into Martha and Mary. The story of Martha and Mary is in the Bible: Luke 10:38-42. They indicate two types of women in relationship to God: the hard-working type, who takes care of everything (Martha) and the worshiping type, who focuses on loving God (Mary). Mary receives more love than Martha.

This is why I use “Martha and Mary” as a prototype for these two types of women. Mary represents Eve before the Human Fall: Beautiful, carefree, trusting, worshiping. Martha represents Eve after the Human Fall: troubled, focused on good and evil, worried, harried.

Examples of Martha and Mary abound. In the Bible, the prototype is Eve before the Human Fall: She is without any clothes and yet feels no shame. She has no concerns. In contrast, Eve after the Human Fall feels naked, ashamed, in need of covering herself, troubled, not beautiful.

In Abraham’s family there are two wives: Sarah and Agar. Sarah is loved by Abraham; Agar is pushed out onto the desert, with her son, Ishmael. In Jacob’s family, there are two women who become Jacob’s wives: Rachel is loved by Jacob; Lea is left aside. In Jesus’ family, there are two sisters: Mary, the mother of Jesus; and Elizabeth, Mary’s sister and the wife of Zachariah. Mary was loved by God; received the visitation by the angel, and became the mother of Jesus. Elizabeth was left aside.

In Christianity, which represents the bride of Christ, there are two major streams: The Christians who worry about the poor and the Christians who focus on worshiping God. The Catholics worry about the poor. They represent “Martha.” The Protestants focus on worshiping God. They represent “Mary.” In world geography, Africa represents “Martha,” the suffering heart. South America, centering on Brazil, represents “Mary,” the carefree, beautiful, joyful heart.

The Rejected Ones Come Home

After 2012, however, there has been a change in Heilsgeschichte. All those people who have been rejected or left by the wayside are being gathered to come back home. The lost children are coming home. The “less-loved” women are coming home. Cain is coming home. Martha is receiving full love.

For this purpose, God has prepared Islam. Islam is the hope of the hopeless, the salvation for the “children of the desert.” Before Islam broke out onto the world scene in our time, there was Communism one generation before. Communism came as a false appearance of hope for the hopeless. Communism was false salvation. Thus, one of the reasons why God brought me to the United States was to clarify about the purpose of Communism. In 1986, I edited and published the book The End of Communism, written by Dr. Sang Hun Lee, which explained in very clear terms why Communism was false hope for humankind and was destined to fail.

In our generation, in three major attacks, Islam has been crying out for a solution. The first attack was at the World Trade Center in 1993. I was in New York at the time, just a few block from where the attack took place. I heard the explosion. The second attack was devastating: the attacks of 9/11. Through miraculous inspiration, I was able to escape that attack and was very far away when it happened. The third attack was perpetrated on the US Consulate of Beghazi, Libya on September 11, 2012.

Peace Among the Children and Among the Wives

The time for attack has passed. It is now time for reconciliation. We have crossed the magic barrier of December 21, 2012. I believe that date represents the end of Heilsgeschichte and the beginning of peace on earth. We are back in paradise. The philosophy that I present for this age is the back-to-the-body perspective, which is back to paradise. Paradise is not a place. Paradise is the human body itself: “The kingdom of God is within you” (Luke 17:21).

It is time for the children of the desert to come home and have a place at the table. It is time for the women of lesser love to come onto the full experience of love. No more separation. Martha and Mary become one; Cain and Abel become one.
