esus was aware of his path as the Messiah, and he lamented by
himself these lonely circumstances and the serious obstacle they
presented to fulfilling the will of God. The Messiah is the True
Parent. And to fulfill that mission he needed to receive his
substantial bride. Jesus had to reverse, at the very root, the false
love by which the Archangel had caused the fall of Eve, who was
growing up as the sister of Adam. Consequently, Jesus, in the place
of Adam as the Son of God, should have received as his bride the
younger sister of someone in an archangelic position. That bride was
to have been none other than Zechariah's daughter, the younger
sister of John the Baptist. To fulfill this in a world where Satan
plays the role of owner and lord, Jesus needed a foundation of
protection formed by absolute faith. Tragically, the entire
foundation ended up collapsing around him.
This would not have happened if Zechariah and
Elizabeth, who had received the revelation and spiritual support
from God, had maintained absolute faith. If they had fulfilled their
responsibility, Mary would have been in contact with them
continually, even after her three-month stay at their house. God
chose Zechariah's family as the foremost representatives of the
entire world, so that even after the birth of Jesus they would
protect, serve, and witness to him as the Messiah. They not only
should have served Jesus as the Son of God and Messiah with utter
devotion, but they should have learned the will of God through Jesus
and followed him absolutely. Also, John the Baptist was born to
serve Jesus and should have fulfilled his responsibility to guide
everyone he led to repentance to believe in Jesus and receive
But unfortunately, although Zechariah, Elizabeth,
and John the Baptist testified at first to Jesus as the Son of God,
there is no evidence that they served him as such. The respected
priest Zechariah was simply a spectator. John the Baptist stood
separate from Jesus. These circumstances blocked the people from
following Jesus and made his path very difficult. And once this
family lost faith in Jesus, looking at him through human eyes, there
was no room for them to help him receive his bride.
Mary in a most concrete way should have arranged
Jesus' marriage quickly. Mary did not help Jesus with the wedding he
desired. She even opposed it. This was the direct reason that Jesus
could not receive his bride, and could not become the True Parent;
and this forced him to go the way of the cross.
Jesus' words to Mary during the wedding at Cana, "Oh
woman, what have you to do with me?" (John 2:4), reveal a
reproachful heart to a mother who helped in the weddings of others
but neglected to help Jesus receive his bride, the most important
requirement of the Providence.
If Mary had worked with all her might to
accomplish this, she would have been successful. Then purified blood
and a new lineage could have come into existence. Restoration would
have been very quick.
By doing that, the mother and son would have come
into unity and restored Eve's failure. If Abel had united with Cain,
then the mother would have been restored to the original position.
That is the tragedy of the Israelite history. There were two
options; one was the mother uniting Cain and Abel, and the other was
Cain and Abel uniting and restoring their mother. They could have
done it either way. The Jewish religion was in Abel's position, the
nation of Israel was in Cain's position on a national level; these
two should have united. Then Cain and Abel on a national level would
have restored a national level mother. The mission of Israel was to
bring Cain and Abel into unity, to restore the mother's position.
Restoration must reverse the fall.
