How does the Divine Ministry to humans, of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit, differ?
How are they alike?
How are they applied in our local universe?
PAPER 7 RELATION OF THE ETERNAL SON TO THE UNIVERSE
3. RELATION OF THE ETERNAL SON TO THE INDIVIDUAL
7:3.1 In the local universe ascent the mortals of time look to the Creator Son [our Jesus Christ Michael] as the personal representative of the Eternal Son. But when they begin the ascent of the superuniverse training regime, the pilgrims of time increasingly detect the supernal presence of the inspiring spirit of the Eternal Son, and they are able to profit by the intake of this ministry of spiritual energization. In Havona [One billion very high Heavens circling around the Isle of Paradise] the ascenders become still more conscious of the loving embrace of the all-pervading Spirit of the Original Son. At no stage of the entire mortal ascension does the Spirit of the Eternal Son indwell the mind or soul of the pilgrim of time, but his beneficence is ever near and always concerned with the welfare and spiritual security of the advancing children of time.
4. THE DIVINE PERFECTION PLANS
7:4.1 The Eternal Son is in everlasting liaison with the Father in the successful prosecution of the divine plan of progress: the universal plan for the creation, evolution, ascension, and perfection of will creatures. And, in divine faithfulness, the Son is the eternal equal of the Father.
7:4.2 The Father and his Son are as one in the formulation and prosecution of this gigantic attainment plan for advancing the material beings of time to the perfection of Eternity. This project for the spiritual elevation of the ascendant souls of space is a joint creation of the Father and the Son, and they are, with the co-operation of the Infinite Spirit, engaged in associative execution of their Divine Purpose.
7:4.3 This divine plan of perfection attainment embraces three unique, though marvelously correlated, enterprises of universal adventure: [Important:]
7:4.4 1. The Plan of Progressive Attainment. This is the Universal Father's plan of evolutionary ascension, a program unreservedly accepted by the Eternal Son when He concurred in the Father's proposal, "Let Us make mortal creatures in our own Image." This provision for upstepping the creatures of time involves the Father's Bestowal of the Thought Adjusters and the endowing of material creatures with the prerogatives of personality. [What great eternal Gifts we each have if we personally choose to survive and follow our loving Father God !]
7:4.5 2. The Bestowal Plan. The next universal plan is the great Father-Revelation enterprise of the Eternal Son and his Co-ordinate Sons. This is the proposal of the Eternal Son and consists of his bestowal of the Sons of God upon the evolutionary creations, there to personalize and factualize, to incarnate and make Real, the love of the Father and the mercy of the Son to the creatures of all universes. Inherent in the Bestowal Plan, and as a provisional feature of this ministration of love, the Paradise Sons act as rehabilitators of that which misguided creature will has placed in spiritual jeopardy. Whenever and wherever there occurs a delay in the functioning of the attainment plan, if rebellion, perchance, should mar or complicate this enterprise, then do the emergency provisions of the bestowal plan become active forthwith. The Paradise Sons stand pledged and ready to function as retrievers, to go into the very realms of rebellion and there restore the spiritual status of the spheres. And such a heroic service a Coordinate Creator Son did perform on earth in connection with his experiential Bestowal Career of Sovereignty acquirement. [Yes ! "IT IS DONE !"]
7:4.6 3. The Plan of Mercy Ministry. When the attainment plan and the bestowal plan had been formulated and proclaimed, alone and of himself, the Infinite Spirit projected and put in operation the tremendous and universal enterprise of mercy ministry. This is the service so essential to the practical and effective operation of both the attainment and the bestowal undertakings, and the spiritual personalities of the Third Source and Center [our Universe Creative Minister (Holy Spirit)] all partake of the spirit of mercy ministry which is so much a part of the nature of the Third Person of Deity. Not only in Creation but also in Administration, the Infinite Spirit functions truly and literally as the Conjoint Executive of the Father and the Son. [This includes our Guardian Angels and many other higher Angels -- Daughters of God.]
7:4.7 The Eternal Son is the personal trustee, the divine custodian, of the Father’s universal plan of creature ascension. Having promulgated the universal mandate, “Be you perfect, even as I am perfect,” the Father entrusted the execution of this tremendous undertaking to the Eternal Son; and the Eternal Son shares the fostering of this supernal enterprise with his divine co-ordinate, the Infinite Spirit. Thus do the Deities effectively co-operate in the work of creation, control, evolution, revelation, and ministration — and if required, in restoration and rehabilitation.
5. THE SPIRIT OF BESTOWAL
7:5.3 The purely personal nature of the Eternal Son is incapable of fragmentation. The Eternal Son ministers as a spiritual influence or as a person, never otherwise. The Son finds it impossible to become a part of creature experience in the sense that the Father-Adjuster participates therein, but the Eternal Son compensates this limitation by the technique of bestowal. What the experience of fragmented entities means to the Universal Father, the incarnation experiences of the Paradise Sons mean to the Eternal Son.
7:5.10 The Eternal Son is the exemplary inspiration for all the Sons of God in their ministrations of Bestowal throughout the universes of time and space. The Coordinate Creator Sons [equal to God; both God the Father and God the Son to us] and the associate Magisterial Sons, together with other unrevealed orders of sonship, all partake of this wonderful willingness to bestow themselves upon the varied orders of creature life and as the creatures themselves. Deity] origin, it becomes true that in the Bestowal of each Son of God upon the worlds of space, in and through and by these bestowals, the Eternal Son has Bestowed himself upon the intelligent will creatures of the universes.
PAPER 8 THE INFINITE SPIRIT
2. NATURE OF THE INFINITE SPIRIT
8:2.6 Though in every way sharing the perfection, the righteousness, and the love of the Universal Father, the Infinite Spirit inclines towards the mercy attributes of the Eternal Son, thus becoming the Mercy Minister of the Paradise Deities to the grand universe. Ever and always — universally and eternally — the Spirit is a Mercy Minister, for, as the Divine Sons reveal the love of God, so the Divine Spirit depicts the mercy of God.
8:2.7 It is not possible that the Spirit could have more of goodness than the Father since all goodness takes origin in the Father, but in the acts of the Spirit we can the better comprehend such goodness. The Father’s faithfulness and the Son’s constancy are made very Real to the Spirit beings and the material creatures of the spheres by the loving ministry and ceaseless service of the personalities of the Infinite Spirit. [Countless angels, super-angels, Ministering Spirits on all levels. Each human has a ministering Guardian Angel pair of Seraphim and and the omnipresent local universe Creative Holy Spirit Minister Who is a Coordinate Partner of our Creator Father-Son Jesus Christ Michael. More on these good Ministering Spirits later.]
3. RELATION OF THE SPIRIT TO THE FATHER AND THE SON
8:3.4 A Creator Son [our Sovereign Maker Jesus Christ Michael !] of the Eternal Son and a Creative Spirit [our Holy Mother Spirit !] of the Infinite Spirit created you and your universe; and while the Father in faithfulness upholds that which they have organized, it devolves upon this Universe Son and this Universe Spirit to foster and sustain their work as well as to minister to the creatures of their own making.
8:3.5 The Infinite Spirit is the effective agent of the all-loving Father and the all-merciful Son for the execution of their conjoint project of drawing to themselves all truth-loving souls on all the worlds of time and space. The very instant the Eternal Son accepted his Father's plan of perfection attainment for the creatures of the universes, the moment the ascension project became a Father-Son plan, that instant the Infinite Spirit became the Conjoint Administrator of the Father and the Son for the execution of their united and eternal purpose. And in so doing the Infinite Spirit pledged all his resources of Divine Presence and of Spirit Personalities to the Father and the Son; He has dedicated all to the stupendous plan of exalting surviving will creatures to the divine heights of Paradise perfection. [! Perfect triune loving ministry to all of us !]
8:3.6 The Infinite Spirit is a complete, exclusive, and Universal Revelation of the Universal Father and his Eternal Son. All knowledge of the Father-Son partnership must be had through the Infinite Spirit, the Conjoint Representative of the Divine Thought-Word Union.
8:3.7 The Eternal Son is the only avenue of approach to the Universal Father, and the Infinite Spirit is the only means of attaining the Eternal Son. Only by the patient Ministry of the Spirit are the ascendant beings of time able to discover the Son.
4. THE SPIRIT OF DIVINE MINISTRY
8:4.1 Paralleling the physical universe wherein Paradise gravity holds all things together is the spiritual universe wherein the word of the Son interprets the thought of God and, when “made flesh,” [Jesus Christ Incarnated here; and He remains here in Spirit !] demonstrates the loving mercy of the combined nature of the associated Creators. But in and through all this material and spiritual creation there is a vast stage whereon the Infinite Spirit and his Spirit offspring show forth the combined mercy, patience, and everlasting affection of the Divine Parents towards the intelligent children of their co-operative devising and making. Everlasting Ministry to Mind is the essence of the Spirit’s Divine Character. And all the [Universe Divine Minister, Creative Mother, Holy] Spirit offspring of the Conjoint Actor partake of this desire to Minister, this Divine Urge to Service.
8:4.2 God is love, the Son is mercy, the Spirit is ministry — the ministry of divine love and endless mercy to all intelligent creation. The Spirit is the personification of the Father’s love and the Son’s mercy; in him are they eternally united for universal service. The Spirit is love applied to the creature creation, the combined love of the Father and the Son.
8:4.3 On earth, the Infinite Spirit is known as an Omnipresent influence, a Universal Presence, but in Havona you shall know him as a Personal Presence of Actual Ministry. Here the Ministry of the Paradise Spirit is the exemplary and inspiring pattern for each of his Coordinate Spirits and subordinate personalities ministering to the created beings on the worlds of time and space. In this Divine [Central] Universe the Infinite Spirit fully participated in the seven transcendental appearances of the Eternal Son; likewise did he participate with the original Michael Son in the seven bestowals upon the circuits of Havona, thereby becoming the sympathetic and understanding Spirit Minister to every pilgrim of time traversing these perfect circles on high.[Wonderful !]
8:4.4 When a Creator Son of God accepts the Creatorship charge of responsibility for a projected local universe, the personalities of the Infinite Spirit pledge themselves as the tireless Ministers of this Michael Son when he goes forth on his Mission of Creative adventure. Especially in the persons of the Creative Daughters, the local universe Mother Spirits, do we find the Infinite Spirit devoted to the task of fostering the ascension of the material creatures to higher and higher levels of spiritual attainment. And all this work of creature ministry is done in perfect harmony with the purposes, and in close association with the personalities, of the Creator Sons of these local universes.[Our Creator Father-Son of God is Jesus Christ Michael; his Partner is the Creative Minister (Holy Spirit) of the Infinite Spirit.]
8:4.5 As the Sons of God are engaged in the gigantic task of Revealing the Father’s Personality of love to a universe, so is the Infinite Spirit dedicated to the unending Ministry of Revealing the combined love of the Father and the Son to the individual minds of all the children [and thus, also all humans !] of each universe. In these local creations the Spirit does not come down to the material races in the likeness of mortal flesh [Christ Michael who Incarnated here as Jesus is also the Son of Man and our Very Elder Brother !] as do certain of the Sons of God, but the Infinite Spirit and his Coordinate Spirits do downstep themselves, do joyfully undergo an amazing series of divinity attenuations, until they appear as angels to stand by your side and guide you through the lowly paths of earthly existence.
8:4.6 By this very diminishing series the Infinite Spirit does actually, and as a Person, draw very near to every being of the animal-origin spheres. And all this the Spirit does without in the least invalidating his existence as the Third Person of Deity at the center of all things.
8:4.7 The Conjoint Creator is truly and forever the great Ministering Personality, the Universal Mercy Minister. To comprehend the ministry of the Spirit, ponder the truth that he is the combined portrayal of the Father’s unending love and of the Son’s eternal mercy. The Spirit’s ministry is not, however, restricted solely to the representation of the Eternal Son and the Universal Father. The Infinite Spirit also possesses the power to minister to the creatures of the realm in his own name and right; the Third Person is of Divine Dignity and also bestows the Universal Ministry of Mercy in his own behalf.
8:4.8 As man learns more of the loving and tireless ministry of the lower orders of the creature family of this Infinite Spirit, he will all the more admire and adore the transcendent nature and matchless character of this combined Action of the Universal Father and the Eternal Son. Indeed is this Spirit “the eyes of the Lord which are ever over the righteous” and “the divine ears which are ever open to their prayers.” [God is Spirit ! Amen !]
5. THE PRESENCE OF GOD
8:5.1 The outstanding attribute of the Infinite Spirit is Omnipresence. Throughout all the Universe of Universes there is everywhere present this all-pervading [Ministering] Spirit, which is so akin to the presence of a universal and divine Mind. Both the Second Person and the Third Person of Deity are represented on all worlds [even on our backwards planet earth !] by their ever-present Spirits.
8:5.2 The Father is infinite and is therefore limited only by volition. [His infinite, absolute, eternal will.] In the Bestowal of Adjusters [God's pure. prepersonal spirit portion within each normal human being] and in the encircuitment of personality, the Father acts alone, but in the contact of Spirit forces with intelligent beings, He utilizes the Spirits and Personalities of the Eternal Son and the Infinite Spirit. He is at will spiritually Present equally with the Son or with the Conjoint Actor; He is Present with the Son and in the Spirit. The Father is most certainly everywhere Present, and we [Paradise Divine Counselors on Uversa, the headquarters of our Orvonton Seventh Superuniverse] discern his Presence by and through any and all of these diverse but associated forces, influences, and presences.
8:5.3 In your sacred writings the term Spirit of God seems to be used interchangeably to designate both the Infinite Spirit on Paradise and the Creative Spirit [Bride of Christ, Co-equal Partner of our Sovereign Father-Son Jesus Christ Michael] of your local universe. The Holy Spirit is the spiritual circuit of this Creative Daughter of the Paradise Infinite Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a circuit indigenous to each local universe and is confined to the spiritual realm of that creation; but the Infinite Spirit is omnipresent. [There are 700,000 local universes in this present Grand Universe of Seven Superuniverses; the past-now-future Master Universe is much larger, but not yet much revealed to humans. There is also the unrevealed Infinite Universe. And there is more ever being revealed as we progress in Spirit and in All Truth. Amen !]
8:5.4 [Very important:] There are many spiritual influences, and they are all as ONE. Even the work of the Thought Adjusters, though independent of all other influences, unvaryingly coincides with the Spirit Ministry of the combined influences of the Infinite Spirit and a local universe Mother Spirit. As these spiritual Presences operate in the lives of mortals on earth, they cannot be segregated. In your minds and upon your souls they function as One Spirit, notwithstanding their diverse origins. And as this united spiritual Ministration is experienced, it becomes to you the influence of the Supreme, “who is ever able to keep you from failing and to present you blameless before your Father on high.”
8:5.5 Ever remember that the Infinite Spirit is the Conjoint Actor; both the Father and the Son are functioning in and through him; He is Present not only as himself but also as the Father and as the Son and as the Father-Son. In recognition of this and for many additional reasons the Spirit Presence of the Infinite Spirit is often referred to as "the Spirit of God." [Coordinate Unity of the Godhead and the Coordinate Universe Creators and Creative Spirits !]
8:5.6 It would also be consistent to refer to the liaison of all spiritual Ministry as the Spirit of God, for such a liaison is truly the union of the spirits of God the Father, God the Son, God the Spirit, and God the Sevenfold — even the Spirit of God the Supreme. [More on that later.]
