Commentary by Yoshitaro Ueda (2008)

From Michi no dai: Foundation of the Path 32:50

II:14 God desires to quickly open the path to manifest God’s workings. The verse says that “there is no place else to open it.” The path being referred to is to begin at Jiba and spread throughout the world through the “places where God’s truth is conveyed.” The starting point exists at no other place but Jiba. The “places where God’s truth is conveyed” refer to mission facilities.
