God lost his lineage and children – the suffering of God

After creating Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, God intended to marry them with His Holy Blessing and bequeath them Heaven’s right of ownership. God wanted Adam and Eve to inherit from Him the ownership of the entire universe.

However, all of this came under Satan’s control because of the Fall. God is like a father who labored and sweated his entire life to accumulate assets for his children, only to have a thief steal everything overnight. Who can comprehend the sorrowful, painful heart of God?

God lost His lineage, lost His children, and was forced to hand over the ownership of the nations and world to Satan.

There was only one way to recover this lineage and ownership. This was the path to win the natural subjugation of Satan, to have Satan surrender voluntarily. What is the secret to accomplishing this? It can only be accomplished by the power of true love when we love our enemies more than we love our own children.

Has there ever been a time when God could rejoice with human beings as their True Father and True Mother, enjoying the natural bonds of parent and child? Has God enjoyed even a year of comfort with His children, knowing that what He created was good? The answer is no; God has not experienced such joy for even one hour.

And has anyone been able to comfort God in this pain? No, because no one has known the reason for the unbridgeable gap that has separated God from humankind for tens of thousands of years. No one has known why God and humanity are in such a tragic situation.
