[Part 1 of 2]


Page 62B(5:0.1) If the finite mind of man is unable to comprehend how so great and so majestic a God as the Universal Father can descend from his eternal abode in infinite perfection to fraternize with the individual human creature, then must such a finite intellect rest assurance of divine fellowship upon the truth of the fact that an actual fragment of the living God resides within the intellect of every normal-minded and morally conscious Earth mortal. The indwelling Thought Adjusters are a part of the eternal Deity of the Paradise Father. Man does not have to go farther than his own inner experience of the soul's contemplation of this spiritual-reality presence to find God and attempt Communion with Him. [Another good way to realize God's Infinite Presence is to know that God as the Father-Infinite I AM has NO outside and NO beyond; therefore He has to Be within you here and now ! and you have to be within Him here and now ! The good word "enthusiasm" is better seen as "en-Theos-iasm" which means both "God within you" and "you within God". The Thought Adjuster is also the will of God within you to lead and guide your mind and soul; and this pure Spirit Essence is designed to Be the future, all-perfected Paradise Spirit Person You ! God has now become as you are ! so that you may eventually become as He is ! - all perfect in your assigned domains of activity !]

62BC (5:0.2) God has distributed the infinity of his eternal nature throughout the existential [eternal existences on the absolute and/or infinite level] realities of his six absolute co-ordinates, [more on this later] but He may, at any time, make direct personal contact with any part or phase or kind of creation through the agency of his prepersonal fragments. And the eternal God has also reserved to himself the prerogative of bestowing [I AM] Personality upon the divine Creators and the living creatures of the universe of universes, while He has further reserved the prerogative of maintaining direct and Parental Contact with all these personal beings through the Personality Circuit. [There are four main Gravity Presence Circuits: Personality, Spirit, Mind, Force-energy-matter. Just as different spheres of matter are attracted to each other by our physical gravity circuit here, kindred-persons and kindred-spirits and kindred-minds are also attracted to each other. The Attraction of the Paradise Father and our True Creator Son of God -- our GODMAN JESUS -- is infinite in potential and absolute and ultimate and supreme in Actual Universe Reality here, now and forevermore.]


62C (5:1.1) The inability of the finite creature to approach the infinite Father is inherent, not in the Father's aloofness, but in the finiteness and material limitations of created beings. The magnitude of the spiritual difference between the highest Personality of universe existence and the lower groups of created intelligences is inconceivable. Were it possible for the lower orders of intelligence to be transported instantly into the presence of the Father himself, they would not know they were there. They would there be just as oblivious of the presence of the Universal Father as where they now are. [!!! Wow !! In Jesus here, the way into the Father is obtainable in Spirit !] There is a long, long road ahead of mortal man before he can consistently and within the realms of possibility ask for safe conduct into the Paradise presence of the Universal Father. Spiritually, man must be translated many times before he can attain a plane that will yield the spiritual vision which will enable him to see even any one of the Seven Master Spirits. [a few living humans here have been granted trial visits into the Father on Paradise when in Spirit in our universe Creator Father-Son Jesus Christ Michael ! But finite human soul and mind limitations make this impossible to fully share -- human to human -- unless both humans have first had/have this eternal Birth-Day Sacred experience. Only Spirit can Reveal Spirit to Spirit; hence we first must be Spirit Born in God in Jesus ! Now is a good time in eternity to seek Him ...]

62D (5:1.2) Our Father is not in hiding; He is not in arbitrary seclusion. He has mobilized the resources of divine wisdom in a never-ending effort to reveal himself to the children of his universal domains. There is an infinite grandeur and an inexpressible generosity connected with the majesty of his love which causes him to yearn for the association of every created being who can comprehend, love, or approach him; and it is, therefore, the limitations inherent in you, inseparable from your finite personality and material existence, that determine the time and place and circumstances in which you may achieve the goal of the journey of mortal ascension and stand in the presence of the Father at the center of all things.

63A (5:1.3) Although the approach to the Paradise presence of the Father must await your attainment of the highest finite levels of spirit progression, you should rejoice in the recognition of the ever-present possibility of immediate Communion with the bestowal spirit of the Father so intimately associated with your inner soul and your spiritualizing self.

63B (5:1.4) The mortals of the realms of time and space may differ greatly in innate abilities and intellectual endowment, they may enjoy environments exceptionally favorable to social advancement and moral progress, or they may suffer from the lack of almost every human aid to culture and supposed advancement in the arts of civilization; but the possibilities for spiritual progress in the ascension career are equal to all; increasing levels of spiritual insight and cosmic meanings are attained quite independently of all such sociomoral differentials of the diversified material environments on the evolutionary worlds. [Jesus teaches us that He here and God on Paradise are One and are no respecter of persons ! Their love and Spirit Presence envelope and pervade all humans the SAME WAY ! Thus Jesus teaches us to dare to love all -- even to love our enemies ! They TOO are EQUALLY Beloved sons of God in Jesus just AS YOU ARE ! Amen !!]

63B (5:1.5) However Earth mortals may differ in their intellectual, social, economic, and even moral opportunities and endowments, forget not that their spiritual endowment is uniform and unique. They all enjoy the same Divine Presence of the Gift from the Father, and they are all equally privileged to seek intimate personal Communion with this indwelling Spirit of divine origin, while they may all equally choose to accept the uniform spiritual leading of these Mystery Monitors. [The perfect will of God within you -- the divine Thought Adjusters -- is the same One will of God for each and for all ! Thus we must all seek to learn and obey the One Will of God in/as Jesus and in/as Spirit ! This means that this backward world will continue to progress; and eventually, we will all have and enjoy one worldwide moral code, one planetary law, one planetary language, one combined race, one Godly government, and finally, much later, one true world religion in Jesus in Spirit ! Then this planet will be admitted into God's Light and Life on a planetary and universe basis; now God's Light and Life in Jesus is Individually (humanly) received by all sincere Truth lovers !]

63C (5:1.6) If mortal man is wholeheartedly spiritually motivated, unreservedly consecrated to the doing of the Father's will, then, since he is so certainly and so effectively spiritually endowed by the indwelling and divine Adjuster, there cannot fail to materialize in that individual's experience the sublime consciousness of knowing God and the supernal assurance of surviving for the purpose of finding God by the progressive experience of becoming more and more like him. [eventually all perfected and personally living in Spirit in His Paradise Personal Presence !]

63C (5:1.7) Man is spiritually indwelt by a surviving Thought Adjuster. If such a human mind is sincerely and spiritually motivated, if such a human soul desires to know God and become like him, honestly wants to do the Father's will, there exists no negative influence of mortal deprivation nor positive power of possible interference which can prevent such a divinely motivated soul from securely ascending to the portals of Paradise.

63D (5:1.8) The Father desires all his creatures to be in personal Communion with him. He has on Paradise a place to receive all those whose survival status and spiritual nature make possible such attainment. [Jesus has made the perfect True Light Way for each and all humans to survive and to find the Father in Him !!! Amen ! Thank You Jesus ! ...] Therefore settle in your philosophy now and forever: To each of you and to all of us, God is approachable, the Father is attainable, the way is open; the forces of divine love and the ways and means of divine administration are all interlocked in an effort to facilitate the advancement of every worthy intelligence of every universe to the Paradise presence of the Universal Father. [Thank You our Universal Father and our Universe Creator Son Jesus and the Holy Spirit for these Sacred Gifts including our individual eternal life in God's Pure Light !]

63D (5:1.9) The fact that vast time is involved in the attainment of God makes the Presence and Personality of the Infinite none the less Real. Your ascension is a part of the circuit of the seven superuniverses, and though you swing around it countless times, you may expect, in spirit and in status, to be ever swinging inward. You can depend upon being translated from sphere to sphere, from the outer circuits ever nearer the inner center, and some day, doubt not, you shall stand in the divine and central Presence and see Him, figuratively speaking, face to face. [and Light into Light in Light --the perfected Son in Spirit into the Father ...] It is a question of the attainment of actual and literal spiritual levels; and these spiritual levels are attainable by any being who has been indwelt by a Mystery Monitor, and who has subsequently eternally fused [as One Divine-Human in Spirit] with that Thought Adjuster.

64A (5:1.10) The Father is not in spiritual hiding, but so many of his creatures have hidden themselves away in the mists of their own willful decisions and for the time being have separated themselves from the Communion of his Spirit and the Spirit of his Son by the choosing of their own perverse [corrupt, wrong-minded, unrighteous] ways and by the indulgence of the self-assertiveness of their intolerant minds and unspiritual natures.

64B (5:1.11) Mortal man may draw near God and may repeatedly forsake the divine will so long as the power of choice remains. Man's final doom is not sealed until he has lost the power to choose the Father's will. There is never a closure of the Father's heart to the need and the petition of his children. Only do his offspring close their hearts forever to the Father's drawing power when they finally and forever lose the desire to do his divine will--to know him and to be like him. Likewise is man's eternal destiny assured when Adjuster fusion proclaims to the universe that such an ascender has made the final and irrevocable choice to live the Father's will.

64B (5:1.12) The great God makes direct contact with mortal man and gives a part of his infinite and eternal and incomprehensible Self to live and dwell within him. God has embarked upon the eternal adventure with man. If you yield to the leadings of the spiritual forces in you and around you, you cannot fail to attain the high destiny established by a loving God as the universe goal of his ascendant creatures from the evolutionary worlds of space. ["Onto us is Born (Incarnate Deity-Man) a Child, unto us a (Divine Creator) Son is given: and ..." Prayerfully and in the Spirit of Truth peruse again Isa 9:6 (and with or without also singing or playing Handel's "Messiah")]


64C (5:2.1) The physical presence of the Infinite is the reality of the material universe. The mind presence of Deity must be determined by the depth of individual intellectual experience and by the evolutionary personality level. The spiritual presence of Divinity must of necessity be differential in the universe. It is determined by the spiritual capacity of receptivity and by the degree of the consecration of the creature's will to the doing of the divine will.

64C (5:2.2) God lives in every one of his spirit-born sons. The Paradise Sons always have access to the presence of God, "the right hand of the Father," and all of his creature personalities have access to the "bosom of the Father." This refers to the Personality Circuit, whenever, wherever, and however contacted, or otherwise entails personal, self-conscious contact and Communion with the Universal Father, whether at the central abode or at some other designated place, as on one of the seven sacred spheres of Paradise.

64D (5:2.3) The divine presence cannot, however, be discovered anywhere in nature or even in the lives of God-knowing mortals so fully and so certainly as in your attempted communion with the indwelling Mystery Monitor, the Paradise Thought Adjuster. What a mistake to dream of God far off in the skies when the spirit of the Universal Father lives within your own mind !

64D (5:2.4) It is because of this God fragment that indwells you that you can hope, as you progress in harmonizing with the Adjuster's spiritual leadings, more fully to discern the Presence and Transforming Power of those other spiritual influences that surround you and impinge upon you but do not function as an integral part of you. [For example He the Spirit of Truth, also known as the Holy Father-Son-Spirit of Truth, also known as our Universe Sovereign Savior Jesus !] The fact that you are not intellectually conscious of close and intimate contact with the indwelling Adjuster does not in the least disprove such an exalted experience. The proof of fraternity with the divine Adjuster consists wholly in the nature and extent of the fruits of the Spirit which are yielded in the life experience of the individual believer. "By their fruits you shall know them."

65A (5:2.5) It is exceedingly difficult for the meagerly spiritualized, material mind of mortal man to experience marked consciousness of the spirit activities of such divine entities as the Paradise Adjusters. As the soul of joint mind and Adjuster creation becomes increasingly existent, there also evolves a new phase of soul consciousness which is capable of experiencing the presence, and of recognizing the spirit leadings and other supermaterial activities, of the Mystery Monitors. [Here on Earth now, the average human becomes partly soul-conscious at around age 30 to 40 years. Then you as a spirit-of-God-led soul can also help to control your lower mind and body.]

65B (5:2.6) The entire experience of Adjuster communion is one involving moral status mental motivation, and spiritual experience. The self-realization of such an achievement is mainly, though not exclusively, limited to the realms of soul consciousness, but the proofs are forthcoming and abundant in the manifestation of the fruits of the Spirit in the lives of all such inner-spirit contactors. [Jesus has told us that the fruits of the Spirit which are yielded in the lives of spirit-born and God-knowing mortals are: loving service, unselfish devotion, courageous loyalty, sincere fairness, enlightened honesty, undying hope, confiding trust, merciful ministry, unfailing goodness, forgiving tolerance, and enduring peace.]


65B (5:3.1) Though the Paradise Deities, from the universe standpoint, are as one, in their spiritual relations with such beings as inhabit Earth they are also three distinct and separate Persons. There is a difference between the Godheads in the matter of personal appeals, communion, and other intimate relations. In the highest sense, we worship the Universal Father and him only. True, we can and do worship the Father as He is manifested in his Creator Sons, but it is the Father, directly or indirectly, who is worshiped and adored. [The Paradise Father and our Creator Father-Son Jesus Christ Michael are One in Spirit here upon each of us Humans.]

65C (5:3.2) Supplications [prayers, sincere requests] of all kinds belong to the realm of the Eternal Son and the Son's spiritual organization. Prayers, all formal communications, everything except adoration and worship of the Universal Father, are matters that concern a local universe; they do not ordinarily proceed out of the realm [universe] of the jurisdiction of a Creator Son. But worship is undoubtedly encircuited and dispatched to the person of the Creator by the function of the Father's personality circuit. We further believe that such registry of the homage of an Adjuster-indwelt creature is facilitated by the Father's spirit presence. There exists a tremendous amount of evidence to substantiate such a belief, and I know that all orders of Father fragments are empowered to register the bona fide adoration of their subjects acceptably in the presence of the Universal Father. The Adjusters undoubtedly also utilize direct prepersonal channels of communication with God, and they are likewise able to utilize the spirit-gravity circuits of the Eternal Son.

65D (5:3.3) Worship is for its own sake; prayer embodies a self- or creature-interest element; that is the great difference between worship and prayer. There is absolutely no self-request or other element of personal interest in true worship; we simply worship God for what we comprehend him to be. Worship asks nothing and expects nothing for the worshiper. We do not worship the Father because of anything we may derive from such veneration; we render such devotion and engage in such worship as a natural and spontaneous reaction to the recognition of the Father's matchless personality and because of his lovable nature and adorable attributes.

65D (5:3.4) The moment the element of self-interest intrudes upon worship, that instant devotion translates from worship to prayer and more appropriately should be directed to the person of the Eternal Son or the Creator Son. [In Jesus here is the fullness of both God the Universal Father and God the Eternal Son on Paradise ! And since the Holy Spirit here of the Infinite Spirit on Paradise has (since AD30 and Jesus' Ascension) eternally pledged all allegiance to Jesus; thus in Jesus here in our universe is He the Holy Father-Son-Spirit of Truth. In Spirit and in all Truth, when you see Jesus you see God !] But in practical religious experience there exists no reason why prayer should not be addressed to God the Father as a part of true worship.

66A (5:3.5) When you deal with the practical affairs of your daily life, you are in the hands of the spirit personalities having origin in the Third Source and Center; you are co-operating with the agencies of the Conjoint Actor. [the Holy Creative Spirit Partner of Jesus, and also many super-angels and angels and ministering spirits.] And so it is: You worship God; pray to, and commune with, the Son; and work out the details of your earthly sojourn in connection with the intelligences of the Infinite Spirit operating on your world and throughout your universe.

66B (5:3.6) [Very Important:] The Creator or Sovereign Sons who preside over the destinies of the local universes stand in the place of both the Universal Father and the Eternal Son of Paradise. These Universe Sons receive, in the name of the Father, the adoration of worship and give ear to the pleas of their petitioning subjects throughout their respective creations. To the children of a local universe a Michael Son is, to all practical intents and purposes, God. He is the local universe personification of the Universal Father and the Eternal Son. The Infinite Spirit maintains personal contact with the children of these realms through the Universe Spirits, the administrative and creative associates of the Paradise Creator Sons. [The first and second Persons of the Paradise Trinity -- God the Universal Father and God the Eternal Son -- are both on infinite Paradise and are fully transmitting Their personalities and Spirits and Minds into our Sovereign Creator Jesus; the third Person of the Paradise Trinity -- the Infinite Spirit -- is fully projected into the Creative Minister Spirit here -- the Holy Spirit; and She is the full Partner ("Bride") of Jesus. Thus the three Persons of the Trinity are fully here in as two universe Persons; and They are ALL AS ONE in spiritual or God-conscious experiences of Humans ! Three in Two in/as One !]

66BC (5:3.7) Sincere worship connotes the mobilization of all the powers of the human personality under the dominance of the evolving soul and subject to the divine directionization of the associated Thought Adjuster. The mind of material limitations can never become highly conscious of the real significance of true worship. Man's realization of the reality of the worship experience is chiefly determined by the developmental status of his evolving immortal soul. The spiritual growth of the soul takes place wholly independently of the intellectual self-consciousness. [Wonderful ! Soul is just like you; soul is the more enduring, potentially eternal you who can survive physical death and who can be re-personalized in a higher morontia (soul-form) super-body up on the next of seven mansion worlds made by Jesus Christ Michael for our further rehabilitation on the way to higher Spirit status later.]

66C (5:3.8) The worship experience consists in the sublime attempt of the betrothed Adjuster to communicate to the divine Father the inexpressible longings and the unutterable aspirations of the human soul--the conjoint creation of the God-seeking mortal mind and the God-revealing immortal Adjuster. Worship is, therefore, the act of the material mind's assenting to the attempt of its spiritualizing self, under the guidance of the associated spirit, to communicate with God as a faith son of the Universal Father. The mortal mind consents to worship; the immortal soul craves and initiates worship; the divine Adjuster presence conducts such worship in behalf of the mortal mind and the evolving immortal soul. True worship, in the last analysis, becomes an experience realized on four cosmic levels: the intellectual, the morontial, the spiritual, and the personal--the consciousness of mind, soul, and spirit, and their unification in personality. [Tremendous !! Thank You our loving and gracious Father God !!! Please peruse this paragraph several times ! Morontia is a soul reality that is super-physical, but is a sub-spiritual reality. More on this later.]

Study 55 Paper 5
Selections and comments

Compiled 7/20/2012 by Dave@PureChristians.org

[Part 2 of 2]


Page 66D (5:4.1) The morality of the religions of evolution drives men forward in the God quest by the motive power of fear. The religions of Revelation allure men to seek for a God of love because they crave to become like him. But religion is not merely a passive feeling of "absolute dependence" and "surety of survival"; it is a living and dynamic experience of divinity attainment predicated on humanity service.

66D (5:4.2) The great and immediate service of true religion is the establishment of an enduring unity in human experience, a lasting peace and a profound assurance. With primitive man, even polytheism is a relative unification of the evolving concept of Deity; polytheism is monotheism in the making. Sooner or later, God is destined to be comprehended as the reality of values, the substance of meanings, and the life of truth.

67A (5:4.3) God is not only the determiner of destiny; He is man's eternal destination. All nonreligious human activities seek to bend the universe to the distorting service of self; the truly religious individual seeks to identify the self with the universe and then to dedicate the activities of this unified self to the service of the universe family of fellow beings, human and superhuman.

67AB (5:4.4) The domains of philosophy and art intervene between the nonreligious and the religious activities of the human self. Through art and philosophy the material-minded man is inveigled [enticed, artfully lured] into the contemplation of the spiritual realities and universe values of eternal meanings. [The supreme spiritual values are: love, mercy, ministry, (service) truth, beauty and goodness. God the Supreme is evolving out here with and as us as we DO the fruits of the spirit. In God the Father and Son in Spirit, we are now faith-sons of God by Relationship of the Father to the Sons and Spirits and sons (us) ! A free Gift ! There is also God the Ultimate and God the Absolute and God the Infinite -- all in or under the Paradise Trinity. More on these Deities and levels later.]

67B (5:4.5) All religions teach the worship of Deity and some doctrine of human salvation. The Buddhist religion promises salvation from suffering, unending peace; the Jewish religion promises salvation from difficulties, prosperity predicated on righteousness; the Greek religion promised salvation from disharmony, ugliness, by the realization of beauty; Christianity promises salvation from sin, sanctity; Mohammedanism provides deliverance from the rigorous moral standards of Judaism and Christianity. The religion of Jesus is salvation from self, deliverance from the evils of creature isolation in time and in eternity.

67BC (5:4.6) The Hebrews based their religion on goodness; the Greeks on beauty; both religions sought truth. Jesus revealed a God of love, and love is all-embracing of truth, beauty, and goodness.

67C (5:4.7) The Zoroastrians had a religion of morals; the Hindus a religion of metaphysics; the Confucianists a religion of ethics. Jesus lived a religion of service. All these religions are of value in that they are valid approaches to the religion of Jesus. Religion is destined to become the reality of the spiritual unification of all that is good, beautiful, and true in human experience.

67C (5:4.8) The Greek religion had a watchword "Know yourself "; the Hebrews centered their teaching on "Know your God"; the Christians preach a gospel aimed at a "knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ"; Jesus proclaimed the good news of "knowing God, and yourself as a son of God." These differing concepts of the purpose of religion determine the individual's attitude in various life situations and foreshadow the depth of worship and the nature of his personal habits of prayer. The spiritual status of any religion may be determined by the nature of its prayers.

67D (5:4.9) The concept of a semihuman and jealous God is an inevitable transition between polytheism and sublime monotheism. An exalted anthropomorphism is the highest attainment level of purely evolutionary religion. Christianity has elevated the concept of anthropomorphism from the ideal of the human to the transcendent and divine concept of the Person of the glorified Christ. [our One True Creator Father-Son Sovereign GODMAN JESUS !] And this is the highest anthropomorphism that man can ever conceive.

67D (5:4.10) The Christian concept of God is an attempt to combine three separate teachings:

67D (5:4.11) 1. The Hebrew concept -- God as a vindicator of moral values, a righteous God.

67D (5:4.12) 2. The Greek concept -- God as a unifier, a God of wisdom.

68A (5:4.13) 3. Jesus' concept -- God as a living Friend, a loving Father, the Divine Presence. [personally experienced in living-faith God-consciousness in Jesus and the Father-Son Spirit Presence !]

68A (5:4.14) It must therefore be evident that composite Christian theology encounters great difficulty in attaining consistency. This difficulty is further aggravated by the fact that the doctrines of early Christianity were generally based on the personal religious experience of three different persons: Philo of Alexandria, Jesus of Nazareth, and Paul of Tarsus.

68AB (5:4.15) In the study of the religious life of Jesus, view him positively. Think not so much of his sinlessness as of his righteousness, his loving service. Jesus upstepped the passive love disclosed in the Hebrew concept of the heavenly Father to the higher active and creature-loving affection of a God who is the Father of every individual, even of the wrongdoer. [Yes ! This still spiritually backward world needs most to know and believe the Good News Truth that each and every Human being is NOW a divinely Beloved son of God ! Thank You Jesus ! Eventually Divine-Human rights will be legislated worldwide and lived by an ever increasing number of Divine-Humans ! "Love your enemies" as they too are of Divine Spirit potential in destiny finality on Perfect Paradise in/with Jesus ! ]


68B (5:5.1) Morality has its origin in the reason of self-consciousness; it is superanimal but wholly evolutionary. Human evolution embraces in its unfolding all endowments antecedent to the bestowal of the Adjusters and to the pouring out of the Spirit of Truth. But the attainment of levels of morality does not deliver man from the real struggles of mortal living. Man's physical environment entails the battle for existence; the social surroundings necessitate ethical adjustments; the moral situations require the making of choices in the highest realms of reason; the spiritual experience (having realized God) demands that man find him and sincerely strive to be like him.

68C (5:5.2) Religion is not grounded in the facts of science, the obligations of society, the assumptions of philosophy, or the implied duties of morality. Religion is an independent realm of human response to life situations and is unfailingly exhibited at all stages of human development which are postmoral. Religion may permeate all four levels of the realization of values and the enjoyment of universe fellowship: the physical or material level of self-preservation; the social or emotional level of fellowship; the moral or duty level of reason; the spiritual level of the consciousness of universe fellowship through divine worship.

68C (5:5.3) The fact-seeking scientist conceives of God as the First Cause, a God of force. The emotional artist sees God as the ideal of beauty, a God of aesthetics. The reasoning philosopher is sometimes inclined to posit a God of universal unity, even a pantheistic Deity. The religionist of faith believes in a God who fosters survival, the Father in heaven, the God of love.

68D (5:5.4) Moral conduct is always an antecedent of evolved religion and a part of even revealed religion, but never the whole of religious experience. Social service is the result of moral thinking and religious living. Morality does not biologically lead to the higher spiritual levels of religious experience. The adoration of the abstract beautiful is not the worship of God; neither is exaltation of nature nor the reverence of unity the worship of God.

68D (5:5.5) Evolutionary religion is the mother of the science, art, and philosophy which elevated man to the level of receptivity to revealed religion, including the bestowal of Adjusters and the coming of the Spirit of Truth. [in A.D.30, Jesus here in Spirit upon all Humans and fully AS GOD the Universal Father !] The evolutionary picture of human existence begins and ends with religion, albeit very different qualities of religion, one evolutional and biological, the other revelational and periodical. And so, while religion is normal and natural to man, it is also optional. Man does not have to be religious against his will.

69A (5:5.6) Religious experience, being essentially spiritual, can never be fully understood by the material mind; hence the function of theology, the psychology of religion. The essential doctrine of the human realization of God creates a paradox in finite comprehension. It is well-nigh impossible for human logic and finite reason to harmonize the concept of divine immanence, God within and a part of every individual, with the idea of God's transcendence, the divine domination of the universe of universes. These two essential concepts of Deity must be unified in the faith-grasp of the concept of the transcendence of a personal God and in the realization of the indwelling presence of a fragment of that God in order to justify intelligent worship and validate the hope of personality survival. The difficulties and paradoxes of religion are inherent in the fact that the realities of religion are utterly beyond the mortal capacity for intellectual comprehension. [We can and do rejoice that God and Jesus, as One in Spirit can be KNOWN PERSONALLY in our ongoing and evolving personal God-conscious experiences ! Behold our God ! For the time in eternity is now at hand; and He is within you as well as being Transcendent-Sovereign as the God of infinite Paradise and the many local universes and more ! Amen !]

69B (5:5.7) Mortal man secures three great satisfactions from religious experience, even in the days of his temporal sojourn on earth:

69B (5:5.8) 1. Intellectually he acquires the satisfactions of a more unified human consciousness.

69B (5:5.9) 2. Philosophically he enjoys the substantiation of his ideals of moral values.

69B (5:5.10) 3. Spiritually he thrives in the experience of divine companionship, in the spiritual satisfactions of true worship.

69C (5:5.11) God-consciousness, as it is experienced by an evolving mortal of the realms, must consist of three varying factors, three differential levels of reality realization. There is first the mind consciousness -- the comprehension of the idea of God. Then follows the soul consciousness -- the realization of the ideal of God. Last, dawns the spirit consciousness -- the realization of the spirit reality of God. By the unification of these factors of the divine realization, no matter how incomplete, the mortal personality at all times overspreads all conscious levels with a realization of the Personality of God. [I am a son of I AM ! So are YOU, Dear Reader ! Thank You OUR FATHER !] In those mortals who have attained the Corps of the Finality all this will in time lead to the realization of the supremacy of God and may subsequently eventuate in the realization of the ultimacy of God, some phase of the absonite [transcendental] superconsciousness of the Paradise Father. [The quest for God as Infinite I AM is endless ! After realizing some of God the Ultimate, there remains the deeper realizations of God the Absolute and God as Infinite ...never ending !] 69C (5:5.12) The experience of God-consciousness remains the same from generation to generation, but with each advancing epoch in human knowledge the philosophic concept and the theologic definitions of God must change. God-knowingness, religious consciousness, is a universe Reality, but no matter how valid (real) religious experience is, it must be willing to subject itself to intelligent criticism and reasonable philosophic interpretation; it must not seek to be a thing apart in the totality of human experience. [Our Universe Creator Father-Son Jesus is here in Spirit now making GOD a full Reality to you and even showing you some of your Finality Destiny as an ascending Son of God !]

69D (5:5.13) Eternal survival of personality is wholly dependent on the choosing of the mortal mind, whose decisions determine the survival potential of the immortal soul. When the mind believes God and the soul knows God, and when, with the fostering Adjuster, they all desire God, then is survival assured. Limitations of intellect, curtailment of education, deprivation of culture, impoverishment of social status, even inferiority of the human standards of morality resulting from the unfortunate lack of educational, cultural, and social advantages, cannot invalidate the presence of the divine spirit in such unfortunate and humanly handicapped but believing individuals. The indwelling of the Mystery Monitor constitutes the inception and insures the possibility of the potential of growth and survival of the immortal soul. 70A (5:5.14) The ability of mortal parents to procreate is not predicated on their educational, cultural, social, or economic status. The union of the parental factors under natural conditions is quite sufficient to initiate offspring. A human mind discerning right and wrong and possessing the capacity to worship God, in union with a divine Adjuster, is all that is required in that mortal to initiate and foster the production of his immortal soul of survival qualities if such a spirit-endowed individual seeks God and sincerely desires to become like him, honestly elects to do the will of the Father in heaven. [Even your faith is a free Gift from God ! If you are having any problems in seeking and finding God AS A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, just sincerely and wholeheartedly continue to ask our Creator Father and Elder Brother Jesus and the Holy Spirit above and within you to help you Know God in your soul, and thus have perfect spiritual peace -- even the same Paradise peace of God that Jesus has !]


70B (5:6.1) The Universal Father is the God of personalities. The domain of universe personality, from the lowest mortal and material creature of personality status to the highest persons of creator dignity and divine status, has its center and circumference in the Universal Father. God the Father is the bestower and the conservator of every personality. And the Paradise Father is likewise the destiny of all those finite personalities who wholeheartedly choose to do the divine will, those who love God and long to be like him.

70BC (5:6.2) Personality is one of the unsolved mysteries of the universes. We [high Paradise Divine Counselors] are able to form adequate concepts of the factors entering into the make-up of various orders and levels of personality, but we do not fully comprehend the real nature of the personality itself. We clearly perceive the numerous factors which, when put together, constitute the vehicle for human personality, but we do not fully comprehend the nature and significance of such a finite personality. 70C (5:6.3) Personality is potential in all creatures who possess a mind endowment ranging from the minimum of self-consciousness to the maximum of God-consciousness. But mind endowment alone is not personality, neither is spirit nor physical energy. Personality is that quality and value in cosmic reality which is exclusively bestowed by God the Father upon these living systems of the associated and coordinated energies of matter, mind, and spirit. Neither is personality a progressive achievement. Personality may be material or spiritual, but there either is personality or there is no personality. The other-than-personal never attains the level of the personal except by the direct act of the Paradise Father.

70CD (5:6.4) The bestowal of personality is the exclusive function of the Universal Father, the personalization of the living energy systems which He endows with the attributes of relative creative consciousness and the freewill control thereof. There is no personality apart from God the Father, and no personality exists except for God the Father. The fundamental attributes of human selfhood, as well as the absolute Adjuster nucleus of the human personality, are the bestowals of the Universal Father, acting in his exclusively personal domain of cosmic ministry. [The divine pure spirit of God within you -- the Thought Adjuster -- the Mystery Monitor -- is the will of God within you and is prepersonal; as you make many daily decision-choices to try to do God's will, the Adjuster is duplicating all of these higher motives and actions as you as a living SOUL. This soul is just like you except for your physical body and your lower animal behavior nature. Eventually you and the Adjuster will become fused and as one; the Adjuster then has your eternal, unchanging personality; and you (the same one personality) have achieved, with the Adjuster's help, spirit perfection ! When God said to each of us: "Be you perfect; even as I AM perfect.", the Adjuster is the divine means to achieve this as we progress and follow Jesus in his universe here. Much more is in this Epochal Revelation presented on this website to help us better comprehend these tremendous Realities of God The Universal Father and his love to each and to all of us.]

70D (5:6.5) The Adjusters of prepersonal status indwell numerous types of mortal creatures, thus insuring that these same beings may survive mortal death to personalize as morontia [soul and soul body]creatures with the potential of ultimate spirit attainment. For, when such a creature mind of personality endowment is indwelt by a fragment of the spirit of the eternal God, the prepersonal bestowal of the personal Father, then does this finite personality possess the potential of the divine and the eternal and aspire to a destiny akin to the Ultimate, even reaching out for a realization of the Absolute.

71A (5:6.6) Capacity for divine personality is inherent in the prepersonal Adjuster; capacity for human personality is potential in the cosmic-mind endowment of the human being. But the experiential personality of mortal man is not observable as an active and functional reality until after the material life vehicle of the mortal creature has been touched by the liberating divinity of the Universal Father, being thus launched upon the seas of experience as a self-conscious and a (relatively) self-determinative and self-creative personality. The material self is truly and unqualifiedly personal.

71AB (5:6.7) The material self has personality and identity, temporal identity; the pre-personal spirit Adjuster also has identity, eternal identity. This material personality and this spirit prepersonality are capable of so uniting their creative attributes as to bring into existence the surviving identity of the immortal soul. [What great Gifts from God !]

71B (5:6.8) Having thus provided for the growth of the immortal soul and having liberated man's inner self from the fetters of absolute dependence on antecedent causation, the Father stands aside. Now, man having thus been liberated from the fetters of causation response, at least as pertains to eternal destiny, and provision having been made for the growth of the immortal self, the soul, it remains for man himself to will the creation or to inhibit the creation of this surviving and eternal self which is his for the choosing. No other being, force, creator, or agency in all the wide universe of universes can interfere to any degree with the absolute sovereignty of the mortal free will, as it operates within the realms of choice, regarding the eternal destiny of the personality of the choosing mortal. As pertains to eternal survival, God has decreed the sovereignty of the material and mortal will, and that decree is absolute. [God, in giving finite humans here each a personality with fully freewill decision-volition-choice, allows for the potential of any individual human being to sin or even to sin repeatedly and willfully into iniquity ! Most of the real problems on Earth are caused by dumb or stubborn or evil or willfully sinning finite humans, not by God or his perfect Agents here ! It will take many higher heavens and possibly about one trillion years for each human ascending and perfecting son of God to become one with God's spirit within and to be perfect in all spheres of present activity in the infinite Family of God the Paradise Father-Infinite. Never do we stop growing and learning in ever larger cosmic and universal arenas of divine service-destiny ! Amen ! Thank You Jesus for ever Leading us into Yourself and the Father of All as One in Spirit !!]

71C (5:6.9) The bestowal of creature personality confers relative liberation from slavish response to antecedent causation, and the personalities of all such moral beings, evolutionary or otherwise, are centered in the personality of the Universal Father. They are ever drawn towards his Paradise presence by that kinship of being which constitutes the vast and universal family circle and fraternal circuit of the eternal God. There is a kinship of divine spontaneity in all personality. 71C (5:6.10) The Personality circuit of the universe of universes is centered in the Person of the Universal Father, and the Paradise Father is personally conscious of, and in personal touch with, all personalities of all levels of self-conscious existence. And this personality consciousness of all creation exists independently of the mission of the Thought Adjusters. 71D (5:6.11) As all gravity is circuited in the Isle of Paradise, as all Mind is circuited in the Conjoint Actor and all Spirit in the Eternal Son, so is all [yes, ALL !] Personality circuited in the Personal Presence of the Universal Father, and this circuit unerringly transmits the worship of all personalities to the Original and Eternal Personality. [I am a beloved son of I AM; and so are YOU ! Here and now ! and potentially forevermore !]

71D (5:6.12) Concerning those personalities who are not Adjuster indwelt: The attribute of choice-liberty is also bestowed by the Universal Father, and such persons are likewise embraced in the great circuit of divine love, the personality circuit of the Universal Father. God provides for the sovereign choice of all true personalities. No personal creature can be coerced into the eternal adventure; the portal of eternity opens only in response to the freewill choice of the freewill sons of the God of free will. [!!!]

72A (5:6.13) And this represents my efforts to present the relation of the living God to the children of time. And when all is said and done, I can do nothing more helpful than to reiterate that God is your universe Father, and that you are all his planetary children. [Yes ! Jesus Christ Michael is our universe Creator Son of God here; and He is now and forever the fullness of God the Paradise Father I AM. HE IS I AM; SEE JESUS; SEE GOD; THEY ARE ONE IN SPIRIT HERE ! More later.]

Topical Study 56
"GOD" Key Highlights of Studies 50 through 55

Compiled 7/23/2012 by Dave@PureChristians.org

[Part 1 of several]



Page-3 Evolving mortal creatures experience an irresistible urge to symbolize their finite concepts of God. Man's consciousness of moral duty and his spiritual idealism represent a value level -- an experiential reality -- which is difficult of symbolization.

Cosmic consciousness implies the recognition of a First Cause, the one and only uncaused Reality. [God is the One Uncaused Cause of all Eternal and Perfect Reality. God has no outside and no beyond.] God, the Universal Father functions on three Deity-personality levels of subinfinite value and relative divinity expression:

1. Prepersonal -- as in the ministry of the Father fragments, such as the Thought Adjusters. [the pure spirit Essence of God within you; the perfect will of God; to later fully fuse with your unchanging personality ! Also called the Mystery Monitor, the Divine Pilot Light, and other terms.]

2. Personal -- as in the evolutionary experience of created and procreated beings. [including all humans everywhere]

3. Superpersonal -- as in the eventuated existences of certain absonite and associated beings.

Page-4 The term God always denotes personality. Deity may, or may not, refer to divinity personalities. [God the Father, Son and Spirit in the Paradise Trinity are each Eternal Deity Personalities] III. THE FIRST SOURCE AND CENTER

Total, infinite reality is existential in seven phases and as seven co-ordinate Absolutes:
1. The First Source and Center.
2. The Second Source and Center.
3. The Third Source and Center.
4. The Isle of Paradise.
5. The Deity Absolute.
6. The Universal Absolute.
7. The Unqualified Absolute.

[Note above: 1, 2 & 3 are One Center; 4. is One Paradise; 5, 6 & 7 are One Absolute]

Page-5 God, as the First Source and Center, is primal in relation to total reality -- unqualifiedly. The First Source and Center is infinite as well as eternal and is therefore limited or conditioned only by volition.[Will, Personal Choices and Decisions]

God -- the Universal Father -- is the personality of the First Source and Center...

7. The potential personality of an evolutionary moral being or of any other moral being is centered in the personality of the Universal Father. [Tremendous !!]



Page-8 Personality is a level of deified reality [!!] and ranges from the mortal and midwayer level of the higher mind activation of worship and wisdom up through the morontial [soul-level realities] and spiritual to the attainment of finality of personality status. That is the evolutionary ascent of mortal- and kindred-creature personality, but there are numerous other orders of universe personalities.

Reality is subject to universal expansion, personality to infinite diversification, and both are capable of well-nigh unlimited Deity co-ordination and eternal stabilization. While the metamorphic range of nonpersonal reality is definitely limited, we know of no limitations to the progressive evolution of personality realities. [Each human personality is a tremendous Gift from the Original Primal Father I AM Personality !]

On attained experiential levels all personality orders or values are associable and even cocreational. Even God and man can coexist in a unified personality, as is so exquisitely demonstrated in the present status of [Jesus] Christ Michael -- Son of Man and Son of God.

Personality is never spontaneous; it is the gift of the Paradise Father. Personality is superimposed upon energy, and it is associated only with living energy systems; identity can be associated with nonliving energy patterns.

The Universal Father is the secret of the reality of personality, the bestowal of personality, and the destiny of personality. The Eternal Son is the absolute personality, the secret of spiritual energy, morontia spirits, and perfected spirits. The Conjoint Actor is the spirit-mind personality, the source of intelligence, reason, and the universal mind. But the Isle of Paradise is nonpersonal and extra-spiritual, being the essence of the universal body, the source and center of physical matter, and the absolute master pattern of universal material reality.

Page-9 Personality. The personality of mortal man is neither body, mind, nor spirit, neither is it the soul. Personality is the one changeless reality in an otherwise ever-changing creature experience; and it unifies all other associated factors of individuality. The personality is the unique bestowal which the Universal Father makes upon the living and associated energies of matter, mind, and spirit, and which survives with the survival of the morontial soul.


Page-11 To atone for finity of status and to compensate for creature limitations of concept, the Universal Father has established the evolutionary creature's sevenfold approach to Deity:

1. The Paradise Creator Sons.
2. The Ancients of Days.
3. The Seven Master Spirits.
4. The Supreme Being.
5. God the Spirit.
6. God the Son.
7. God the Father.

This sevenfold Deity personalization in time and space and to the seven superuniverses enables mortal man to attain the presence of God, who is spirit. This sevenfold Deity, to finite time-space creatures sometime power-personalizing in the Supreme Being, is the functional Deity of the mortal evolutionary creatures of the Paradise-ascension career. Such an experiential discovery-career of the realization of God begins with the recognition of the divinity of the Creator Son of the local universe [our Sovereign Creator Jesus Christ Michael] and ascends through the superuniverse Ancients of Days and by way of the person of one of the Seven Master Spirits to the attainment of the discovery and recognition of the divine personality of the Universal Father on Paradise.

Page-12 [Very important about our Savior Jesus Christ and what He does for each of us:] The Creator Sons in the Deity association of God the Sevenfold provide the mechanism whereby the mortal becomes immortal and the finite attains the embrace of the infinite. The Supreme Being provides the technique for the power-personality mobilization, the divine synthesis, of all these manifold transactions, thus enabling the finite to attain the absonite [a transcendental level] and, through other possible future actualizations, to attempt the attainment of the Ultimate. The Creator Sons and their associated [our Holy Spirit] Divine Ministers are participants [!!] in this supreme mobilization, but the Ancients of Days and the Seven Master Spirits are probably eternally fixed as permanent administrators in the grand universe.


Page-15 The original and eternal Paradise Trinity is existential and was inevitable. This never-beginning Trinity was inherent in the fact of the differentiation of the personal and the nonpersonal by the Father's unfettered will and factualized when his personal will co-ordinated these dual realities by mind. The post-Havona Trinities are experiential -- are inherent in the creation of two subabsolute and evolutional levels of power-personality manifestation in the master universe.

The Paradise Trinity -- the eternal Deity union of the Universal Father, the Eternal Son, and the Infinite Spirit -- is existential in actuality, but all potentials are experiential. Therefore does this Trinity constitute the only Deity reality embracing infinity, and therefore do there occur the universe phenomena of the actualization of God the Supreme, God the Ultimate, and God the Absolute.

Page-16 The philosophers of the universes postulate a Trinity of Trinities, an existential-experiential Trinity Infinite, but they are not able to envisage its personalization; possibly it would equivalate to the person of the Universal Father on the conceptual level of the I AM. But irrespective of all this, the original Paradise Trinity is potentially infinite since the Universal Father actually is infinite.


Page-17 ... But we know that there dwells within the human mind a fragment of God, and that there sojourns with the human soul the Spirit of Truth; and we further know that these spirit forces conspire to enable material man to grasp the reality of spiritual values and to comprehend the philosophy of universe meanings. But even more certainly we know that these spirits of the Divine Presence are able to assist man in the spiritual appropriation of all truth contributory to the enhancement of the ever-progressing reality of personal religious experience -- God-consciousness.

{Indited by an Orvonton Divine Counselor, Chief of the Corps of Superuniverse Personalities assigned to portray on Earth the truth concerning the Paradise Deities and the universe of universes.}



page 21B (1:0.1) [A,B,C,D are the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th quarters of that page. 1:0.1 is Paper: Section: Paragraph]
The Universal Father is the God of all creation, the First Source and Center of all things and beings. First think of God as a creator, then as a controller, and lastly as an infinite upholder.

21D (1:0.3) The enlightened worlds all recognize and worship the Universal Father, the eternal maker and infinite upholder of all creation. The will creatures of universe upon universe have embarked upon the long, long Paradise journey, the fascinating struggle of the eternal adventure of attaining God the Father. The transcendent goal of the children of time is to find the eternal God, to comprehend the divine nature, to recognize the Universal Father. God-knowing creatures have only one supreme ambition, just one consuming desire, and that is to become, as they are in their spheres, like him as he is in his Paradise perfection of personality and in his universal sphere of righteous supremacy. From the Universal Father who inhabits eternity there has gone forth the supreme mandate, "Be you perfect, even as I AM perfect." In love and mercy the messengers of Paradise have carried this divine exhortation down through the ages and out through the universes, even to such lowly animal-origin creatures as the human races of Earth.


22C (1:1.1) The First Source and Universe Center has never revealed himself by name, only by nature. If we believe that we are the children of this Creator, it is only natural that we should eventually call him Father. But this is the name of our own choosing, and it grows out of the recognition of our personal relationship with the First Source and Center.

22CD (1:1.2) In God, man lives, moves, and has his being; there is nothing which man can give to God except this choosing to abide by the Father's will, and such decisions, effected by the intelligent will creatures of the universes, constitute the reality of that true worship which is so satisfying to the love-dominated nature of the Creator Father. [Always remember that God the Paradise Father-Infinite I AM IS just as loving and merciful as our Perfect Creator Son Jesus Christ IS ! He is not at all more "stern or judgmental" than our Perfect Creator Jesus !! GOD IS LOVE; and He is Perfect and unchanging ! (Absolute) as well as being the Infinite One Un-caused Cause of all Infinite and Eternal Realities !]

23B (1:1.5) On those worlds where a Paradise Son has lived a bestowal life, [Our Creator Father-Son Jesus Christ Michael Incarnated here, 7BC to AD30, to Perfectly Reveal God to us ! He and God as One are STILL HERE as HE the Spirit of All Truth, freely and lovingly poured out upon all flesh ! Amen ! See John 16:7-16 "Michael" is a descriptive term which means that Jesus Christ is exactly like God. HE IS !!] God is generally known by some name indicative of personal relationship, tender affection, and fatherly devotion. On your constellation headquarters God is referred to as the Universal Father, and on different planets in your local system of inhabited worlds He is variously known as the Father of Fathers, the Paradise Father, the Havona Father, [one billion immense, ultimate-absolute spheres between higher infinite Paradise and the lower universe of space-time universes.] and the Spirit Father. Those who know God through the revelations of the bestowals of the Paradise Sons, eventually yield to the sentimental appeal of the touching relationship of the creature-Creator association and refer to God as "our Father."

23C (1:1.6) On a planet of sex creatures, in a world where the impulses of parental emotion are inherent in the hearts of its intelligent beings, the term Father becomes a very expressive and appropriate name for the eternal God. He is best known, most universally acknowledged, on your planet, by the name God. The name He is given is of little importance; the significant thing is that you should know him and aspire to be like him. Your prophets of old truly called him "the everlasting God" and referred to him as the one who "inhabits eternity." [We only see this True God in/as Jesus Christ Who is now running and ruling our universe. See now Isa 9:6 "For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The Mighty God, The Everlasting (and Eternal) Father, The Prince of Peace." and more, ever being Revealed in Spirit and in Father-Son Truth ! Amen ! ]


23D (1:2.1) God is Primal Reality in the spirit world; God is the Source of Truth in the mind spheres; God overshadows all throughout the material realms. To all created intelligences God is a personality, [The Infinite Personality: I AM; I AM AS I AM; I AM UNIVERSAL FATHER-FORCE-SOURCE-CENTER] and to the universe of universes He is the First Source and Center of Eternal Reality. God is neither manlike nor machinelike The First Father is universal spirit, eternal truth, infinite reality, and Father Personality.

23D (1:2.2) ... He is a Saving Person and a loving Father to all who enjoy spiritual peace on earth, and who crave to experience personality survival in death.

24B (1:2.7) God can be realized only in the realms of human experience;

24BC (1:2.8) Those who know God have experienced the fact of his Presence; such God- knowing mortals hold in their personal experience the only positive proof of the existence of the living God which one human being can offer to another.

24C (1:2.9) In theory you may think of God as the Creator, and He is the Personal Creator of Paradise and the central universe of perfection, but the universes of time and space are all created and organized by the Paradise corps of the Creator Sons. [Our Perfect GOD-MAN JESUS !] The Universal Father is not the personal creator of your local universe; the universe in which you live is the creation of his Son [Jesus Christ] Michael. Though the Father does not personally create the evolutionary universes, He does control them in many of their universal relationships and in certain of their manifestations of physical, mindal, and spiritual energies. God the Father is The Personal Creator of the Paradise universe and, in association with the Eternal Son, the creator of all other Personal Universe Creators. [This Truth is also found in John ch 1 and Heb ch 1 and is fully Realized by Spirit of Truth-led humans in personal God-consciousness ever increasing !]


25A (1:3.1) "God is Spirit." He is a universal spiritual presence. The Universal Father is an infinite spiritual reality; He is "the sovereign, eternal, immortal, invisible, and only true God."

25B (1:3.2) Said the seer of old: "Lo, He goes by me, and I see him not; He passes on also, but I perceive him not." We may constantly observe the works of God, we may be highly conscious of the material evidences of his majestic conduct, but rarely may we gaze upon the visible manifestation of his divinity, not even to behold the presence of his delegated spirit of human indwelling. [True, you may increasingly sense the spirit of God within you; but to really see God here; we have to see God in and as Jesus Christ. He Jesus the Spirit of Truth Who is freely poured out upon all flesh on earth is the full Spirit Vision of God that you may perceive and Know in spirit, soul and mind ! SEE JESUS here and now in Spirit and you SEE GOD the Universal Father of All Reality ! The Father and the Son Jesus are fully One here. Some Day, in God's Light and Life, all normal humans will recognize the eternal Sovereignty (Rule) of Jesus as our One True Perfect Saving GOD-MAN fully here in Spirit.]

25B (1:3.3) The spiritual Luminosity of the Father's Personal Presence is a "Light which no mortal man can approach; which no material creature has seen or can see." But it is not necessary to see God with the eyes of the flesh in order to discern [see, perceive, know, realize] Him by the faith-vision of the spiritualized mind. [True !!]

26B (1:3.8) I [a high, Paradise level, and Superuniverse functioning, Divine Counselor] come forth from the Eternal, and I have repeatedly returned to the presence of the Universal Father. I know of the actuality and personality of the First Source and Center, the Eternal and Universal Father. I know that, while the great God is absolute, eternal, and infinite, He is also good, divine, and gracious. I know the truth of the great declarations: "God is spirit" and "God is love," and these two attributes are most completely revealed to the universe in the Eternal Son.


page 26C (1:4.1) The infinity of the perfection of God is such that it eternally constitutes him mystery. [to humans and many subordinate spiritual beings] And the greatest of all the unfathomable mysteries of God is the phenomenon of the divine indwelling of mortal minds. The manner in which the Universal Father sojourns with the creatures of time is the most profound of all universe mysteries; the divine presence in the mind of man is the mystery of mysteries.

26C (1:4.2) The physical bodies of mortals are "the temples of God." Notwithstanding that the Sovereign Creator Sons come near the creatures of their inhabited worlds and "draw all men to themselves"; though they "stand at the door" of consciousness "and knock" and delight to come in to all who will "open the doors of their hearts"; although there does exist this intimate Personal Communion between the Creator Sons [Our Creator and Master Son of God Jesus] and their mortal creatures, nevertheless, mortal men have something from God himself which actually dwells within them; their bodies are the temples thereof. [a prepersonal spirit fragment of God now within you; the perfect will of God within to Guide you and to co-create with your agreeing mind YOU as SOUL which is a higher you that ascends into higher yet spirit stages.]

26D (1:4.3) There sojourns within each moral being of this planet a fragment of God, a part and parcel of divinity. It is not yet yours by right of possession, but it is designedly intended to be one with you if you survive the mortal existence. [as a Spirit-led, progressing soul.]

26D (1:4.5) The God of universal love unfailingly manifests himself to every one of his creatures up to the fullness of that creature's capacity to spiritually grasp the qualities of divine truth, beauty, and goodness. [You may pray to know God and Jesus better and to display the fruits of the Spirit ever better to your now 6.5 billion human brothers on earth in the brotherhood of man in the Family of God.]

27A (1:4.6) To every spirit being and to every mortal creature in every sphere and on every world of the universe of universes, the Universal Father reveals all of his gracious and divine self that can be discerned or comprehended by such spirit beings and by such mortal creatures. God is no respecter of persons, either spiritual or material. The divine Presence which any child of the universe enjoys at any given moment is limited only by the capacity of such a creature to receive and to discern the Spirit Actualities of the supermaterial world.

27B (1:4.7) As a reality in human spiritual experience God is not a mystery. But when an attempt is made to make plain the realities of the spirit world to the physical minds of the material order, mystery appears: mysteries so subtle and so profound that only the faith-grasp of the God-knowing mortal can achieve the philosophic miracle of the recognition of the Infinite by the finite, the discernment of the eternal God by the evolving mortals of the material worlds of time and space. [I, and many others, are spiritually blessed to be personally God-conscious and even Born-Eternal in Paradise Finality Destiny Realizations, ever augmenting. Thank You our loving Father and Master Creator Son Jesus Christ, One in Spirit here and within us faith-sons of God !]

"GOD" Key Highlights of Studies 50 through 55

Compiled 7/25/2012 by Dave@PureChristians.org

[Part 2 of several]



27C (1:5.1) Do not permit the magnitude of God, his infinity, either to obscure or eclipse his personality. "He who planned the ear, shall he not hear? He who formed the eye, shall he not see?" The Universal Father is the acme of divine personality; He is the origin and destiny of personality throughout all creation. God is both infinite and personal; he is an infinite personality. The Father is truly a personality, notwithstanding that the infinity of his Person places him forever beyond the full comprehension of material and finite beings.

28B (1:5.5) In the local creations (excepting the personnel of the superuniverses) God has no personal or residential manifestation aside from the Paradise Creator Sons [our Master Jesus Christ Michael] who are the fathers of the inhabited worlds and the sovereigns of the local universes. If the faith of the creature were perfect, he would assuredly know that when he had seen a Creator Son he had seen the Universal Father; in seeking for the Father, he would not ask nor expect to see other than the Son. Mortal man simply cannot see God until he achieves completed spirit transformation and actually attains Paradise.

28B (1:5.6) The natures of the Paradise Creator Sons do not encompass all the unqualified potentials of the universal absoluteness of the infinite nature of the First Great Source and Center, but the Universal Father is in every way divinely present in the Creator Sons. The Father and his Sons are One. These Paradise Sons of the order of Michael are perfect Personalities, even the pattern for all local universe personality from that of the Bright and Morning Star [Gabriel, the Chief Executive under Jesus in his large universe here] down to the lowest human creature of progressing animal evolution.

28C (1:5.7) Without God and except for his great and central Person, there would be no personality throughout all the vast universe of universes. God is Personality.

29A (1:5.11) Only by personality approach can any person begin to comprehend the unity of God. To deny the personality of the First Source and Center leaves one only the choice of two philosophic dilemmas: materialism or pantheism.

29A (1:5.12) In the contemplation of Deity, the concept of personality must be divested of the idea of corporeality. A material body is not indispensable to personality in either man or God. The corporeality error is shown in both extremes of human philosophy. In materialism, since man loses his body at death, he ceases to exist as a personality; in pantheism, since God has no body, he is not, therefore, a person. The superhuman type of progressing personality functions in a union of mind and spirit.

29B (1:5.13) Personality is not simply an attribute of God; it rather stands for the totality of the coordinated infinite nature and the unified divine will which is exhibited in eternity and universality of perfect expression. Personality, in the supreme sense, is the revelation of God to the universe of universes.

29C (1:5.15) The absolute perfection of the infinite God would cause him to suffer the awful limitations of unqualified finality of perfectness were it not a fact that the Universal Father directly participates in the personality struggle of every imperfect soul in the wide universe who seeks, by divine aid, to ascend to the spiritually perfect worlds on high. This progressive experience of every spirit being and every mortal creature throughout the universe of universes is a part of the Father's ever-expanding Deity-consciousness of the never-ending divine circle of ceaseless self-realization.

29CD (1:5.16) It is literally true: "In all your afflictions he is afflicted." "In all your triumphs he triumphs in and with you." His prepersonal divine spirit is a real part of you. The Isle of Paradise responds to all the physical metamorphoses of the universe of universes; the Eternal Son [Second Person of the Paradise Trinity] includes all the spirit impulses of all creation; the Conjoint Actor [Third Person of the Paradise trinity; the Infinite Spirit acting as and for the Father-Son Union] encompasses all the mind expression of the expanding cosmos. The Universal Father [First Primal-Final Person of the Paradise Trinity and the Infinite I AM] realizes in the fullness of the divine consciousness all the individual experience of the progressive struggles of the expanding minds and the ascending spirits of every entity, being, and personality of the whole evolutionary creation of time and space. And all this is literally true, for "in Him we all live and move and have our being." [Amen !! This is also in Acts 17:28]

6. PERSONALITY IN THE UNIVERSE 29D 1:6.1 Human personality is the time-space image-shadow cast by the divine Creator personality. And no actuality can ever be adequately comprehended by an examination of its shadow. Shadows should be interpreted in terms of the true substance. [God has become as you are ! so that you may continue to choose to become as He is ! "Be you perfect; even as I AM perfect." is the Divine Invitation-Command to you and to me and to all humans and all other beings !]

30A 1:6.2 Man's inadequate concept of the Personality of the Universal Father can be improved only by man's spiritual progress in the universe and will become truly adequate only when the pilgrims of time and space finally attain the divine embrace of the living God on Paradise.

30A 1:6.3 Man possesses the lowest type of personality; God, the highest, even supreme, ultimate, and absolute. Therefore did the better concepts of the Divine Personality have patiently to await the appearance of improved ideas of human personality, especially the enhanced Revelation of both human and divine Personality in the Earth Bestowal Life of [Jesus Christ] Michael, the Creator Son.

30C 1:6.6 The more completely man understands himself and appreciates the personality values of his fellows, the more he will crave to know the Original Personality, and the more earnestly such a God-knowing human will strive to become like the Original Personality. You can argue over opinions about God, but experience with him and in him exists above and beyond all human controversy and mere intellectual logic. The God-knowing man describes his spiritual experiences, not to convince unbelievers, but for the edification and mutual satisfaction of believers. [I often share: Only Spirit can Reveal Spirit to Spirit. If you are not reborn in Spirit and thus have not yet PERCEIVED in soul and mind the Father-Infinite I AM and the Creator Son Jesus as ONE Spirit Presence here, then trying to share that in words to others not yet ready for their Spirit Birth-Day will be not really perceived by them. Please continue to seek and Commune with our loving Father God and you will soon have ever higher personal God-conscious experiences ! Amen !]

30D 1:6.7 To assume that the universe can be known, that it is intelligible, is to assume that the universe is mind made and personality managed. Man's mind can only perceive the mind phenomena of other minds, be they human or superhuman. If man's personality can experience the universe, there is a divine mind and an actual personality somewhere concealed in that universe.

30D 1:6.8 God is Spirit -- spirit Personality; man is also a spirit -- potential spirit personality. [!!] Jesus of Nazareth attained the full realization of this potential of spirit personality in human experience; therefore his Life of achieving the Father's will becomes man's most real and ideal revelation of the Personality of God. Even though the Personality of the Universal Father can be grasped only in actual religious experience, in Jesus' earth Life we are inspired by the Perfect Demonstration of such a Realization and Revelation of the Personality of God in a truly Human experience. [Some Humans now see Jesus as GOD; that is True. Others see Him as perfect Man; that is also True. Jesus Christ Michael is ONE DIVINE-HUMAN PERFECT GOD-MAN PERSONALITY. Never did Jesus, as God, become Man; never did Jesus as Man, become God; Jesus always, even in all past eternity on Paradise, was and is and will be this ONE Spirit GOD-MAN Personality ! Even the best Human Theological and spiritual minds can now only grasp a very little bit of this ...keep praying and studying and reflecting in Spirit and in Truth on these deep Reality issues and you will be given to ever see more and more. Seek in Spirit and in Truth and you shall Receive abundantly ! Amen !]


31A 1:7.1 When Jesus talked about "the living God," He referred to a personal Deity -- the Father in heaven. The concept of the [I AM] Personality of Deity facilitates fellowship; it favors intelligent worship; it promotes refreshing trustfulness. Interactions can be had between nonpersonal things, but not fellowship. The fellowship relation of father and son, as between God and man, cannot be enjoyed unless both are persons. Only personalities can commune with each other, albeit this personal communion may be greatly facilitated by the presence of just such an impersonal entity as the Thought Adjuster. [the prepersonal pure spirit of God within you; to be the perfected You when you finally eternally fuse (become one) with this prepersonal spirit of God, and thus this spirit then has your personality. Thus God allows you to continually choose to be Godlike or not: God allows your personality to decide to follow the spirit of God within and He the Spirit of Truth upon you, or not.]

31B 1:7.3 The concept of truth might possibly be entertained apart from personality, the concept of beauty may exist without personality, but the concept of divine goodness is understandable only in relation to personality. Only a person can love and be loved. Even beauty and truth would be divorced from survival hope if they were not attributes of a personal God, a loving Father. [The best way to perceive the Personality of the Universal Father on Paradise is to perceive the perfect Deity Creator Personality of His Son Jesus Christ Michael. SEE JESUS; SEE GOD; THEY ARE ONE IN SPIRIT HERE !]

31C 1:7.5 Ultimate universe reality cannot be grasped by mathematics, logic, or philosophy, only by personal experience in progressive conformity to the divine will of a personal God. Neither science, philosophy, nor theology can validate the personality of God. Only the personal experience of the faith sons of the heavenly Father can effect the actual spiritual realization of the personality of God.

31C 1:7.6 The higher concepts of universe personality imply: identity, self-consciousness, self-will, and possibility for self-revelation. And these characteristics further imply fellowship with other and equal personalities, such as exists in the personality associations of the Paradise Deities. And the absolute unity of these associations is so perfect that divinity becomes known by indivisibility, by oneness. "The Lord God is one." Indivisibility of personality does not interfere with God's bestowing his spirit to live in the hearts of mortal men. Indivisibility of a human father's personality does not prevent the reproduction of mortal sons and daughters.

31D 1:7.7 This concept of indivisibility in association with the concept of unity implies transcendence of both time and space by the Ultimacy of Deity; therefore neither space nor time can be absolute or infinite. The First Source and Center [I AM] is that infinity Who unqualifiedly transcends all mind, all matter, and all spirit.

31D 1:7.8 The fact of the Paradise Trinity in no manner violates the truth of the divine unity. The three personalities of Paradise Deity are, in all universe reality reactions and in all creature relations, as ONE. Neither does the existence of these three Eternal Persons violate the truth of the indivisibility of Deity. ... Ever bear in mind that these profound truths pertaining to Deity will increasingly clarify as your minds become progressively spiritualized during the successive epochs of the long mortal ascent to Paradise.



Page 33B (2:0.1) Inasmuch as man's highest possible concept of God is embraced within the human idea and ideal of a primal and infinite personality, it is permissible, and may prove helpful, to study certain characteristics of the divine nature which constitute the character of Deity. The nature of God can best be understood by the Revelation of the Father which [our Jesus Christ] Michael unfolded in his manifold teachings and in his superb mortal Life in the flesh. The divine nature can also be better understood by man if he regards himself as a child of God and looks up to the Paradise Creator as a true spiritual Father.

33B (2:0.2) The nature of God can be studied in a revelation of supreme ideas, the divine character can be envisaged as a portrayal of supernal ideals, but the most enlightening and spiritually edifying of all revelations of the divine nature is to be found in the comprehension of the religious life of Jesus of Nazareth, both [both !!] before and after his attainment of full consciousness of divinity. If the incarnated life of Michael is taken as the background of the revelation of God to man, we [high Divine Counselors from Paradise] may attempt to put in human word symbols certain ideas and ideals concerning the divine nature which may possibly contribute to a further illumination and unification of the human concept of the nature and the character of the personality of the Universal Father.

33C (2:0.3) All our efforts to enlarge the human concept of God would be well-nigh futile except for the fact that the mortal mind is indwelt by the bestowed Adjuster of the Universal Father and is pervaded by the Truth Spirit of the Creator Son. Depending, therefore, on the presence of these divine spirits within the heart of man for assistance in the enlargement of the concept of God, I cheerfully undertake the execution of my mandate to attempt the further portrayal of the nature of God to the mind of man.


34B (2:1.3) Notwithstanding the infinity of the stupendous manifestations of the Father's eternal and universal [ I AM] Personality, He is unqualifiedly self-conscious of both his infinity and eternity; likewise He knows fully his perfection and power. He is the only Being in the universe, aside from his divine co-ordinates, who experiences a perfect, proper, and complete appraisal of Himself.

34C (2:1.5) No thing is new to God, and no cosmic event every comes as a surprise; He inhabits the circle of eternity. He is without beginning or end of days. To God there is no past, present, or future; all time is present at any given moment. He is the great and only I AM.

34C (2:1.6) The Universal Father is absolutely and without qualification infinite in all his attributes; and this fact, in and of itself, automatically shuts him off from all direct personal communication with finite material beings and other lowly created intelligences.

35B (2:1.10) Though man cannot encompass the significance of infinity, the infinite Father does most certainly fully comprehend and lovingly embrace all the finity of all his children in all universes. [The Infinite I AM in finite humans and finite humans within the Infinite I AM who has no outside and no beyond !]

35C (2:1.11) Infinity of personality must, perforce, embrace all finitude of personality; hence the Truth--literal Truth--of the teaching which declares that "In Him we live and move and have our being." That fragment of the pure Deity of the Universal Father which indwells mortal man is a part of the infinity of the First Great Source and Center, the Father of Fathers. [In Jesus' Spirit here, we can, even here and now, personally in God-consciousness, grasp the great Truth that: "I am a divinely Beloved ascending son of I AM; I am a son of God in Jesus ! Thank You Jesus ! Thank You the Universal Father I AM on Paradise and in the Personality Gravity Presence Circuit in God and everywhere.]


35D (2:2.1) ... He inhabits the present moment with all his absolute majesty and eternal greatness. "The Father has life in himself, and this life is eternal life." Throughout the eternal ages it has been the Father who "gives to all life." There is infinite perfection in the divine integrity. "I AM the Lord; I change not." ... Thus are the plans and purposes of the First Source and Center like himself: eternal, perfect, and forever changeless.

35D (2:2.2) There is finality of completeness and perfection of repleteness in the mandates of the Father. ... The Universal Father does not repent of his original purposes of wisdom and perfection. His plans are steadfast, his counsel immutable, while his acts are divine and infallible. ... The perfection of divinity and the magnitude of eternity are forever beyond the full grasp of the circumscribed mind of mortal man.


36D (2:3.1) God is righteous; therefore is He just. "The Lord is righteous in all his ways." " 'I have not done without cause all that I have done,' says the Lord." "The judgments of the Lord are true and righteous altogether." The justice of the Universal Father cannot be influenced by the acts and performances of his creatures, "for there is no iniquity with the Lord our God, no respect of persons, no taking of gifts." [Thus there are no "chosen races" or "chosen nations"; all humans must spiritually perfect in Jesus into eternal Life, or later choose to be not.]

36D (2:3.2) How futile to make puerile [childish, nonspiritual] appeals to such a God to modify his changeless decrees so that we can avoid the just consequences of the operation of his wise natural laws and righteous spiritual mandates! ... Infinite wisdom is the eternal arbiter which determines the proportions of justice and mercy which shall be meted out in any given circumstance. The greatest punishment (in reality an inevitable consequence) for wrongdoing and deliberate rebellion against the government of God is loss of existence as an individual subject of that government. ...

37D-38A (2:3.6) The rule of the Creator Sons in the local universes is one of creation and spiritualization. These Sons devote themselves to the effective execution of the Paradise plan of progressive mortal ascension, to the rehabilitation of rebels and wrong thinkers, but when all such loving efforts are finally and forever rejected, the final decree of dissolution is executed by forces acting under the jurisdiction of the Ancients of Days.


38A (2:4.1) Mercy is simply justice tempered by that wisdom which grows out of perfection of knowledge and the full recognition of the natural weaknesses and environmental handicaps of finite creatures. "Our God is full of compassion, gracious, long-suffering, and plenteous in mercy." Therefore "whosoever calls upon the Lord shall be saved," "for He will abundantly pardon." "The mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting"; yes, "his mercy endures forever." "I AM the Lord who executes loving-kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth, for in these things I delight." "I do not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men," for I AM "the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort."

38B (2:4.2) God is inherently kind, naturally compassionate, and everlastingly merciful. And never is it necessary that any influence be brought to bear upon the Father to call forth his loving-kindness. The creature's need is wholly sufficient to insure the full flow of the Father's tender mercies and his saving grace. Since God knows all about his children, it is easy for him to forgive. The better man understands his neighbor, the easier it will be to forgive him, even to love him. ...

38C (2:4.4) Mercy is the natural and inevitable offspring of goodness and love. [Love is the desire to do good to others, as you Know in Spirit or believe in faith that JESUS would do !] The good nature of a loving Father could not possibly withhold the wise ministry of mercy to each member of every group of his universe children. Eternal justice and divine mercy together constitute what in human experience would be called fairness.

38D (2:4.5) ... Mercy is the justice of the Paradise Trinity wisely and lovingly visited upon the manifold intelligences of the creations of time and space as it is formulated by divine wisdom and determined by the all-knowing mind and the sovereign free will of the Universal Father and all his associated Creators. [Our loving and merciful Creator Son of God is our Sovereign God-Man Jesus Christ here with us in Spirit !]


page 38D (2:5.1) "God is love"; therefore his only personal attitude towards the affairs of the universe is always a reaction of divine affection. The Father loves us sufficiently to bestow his life upon us. "He makes his sun to rise on the evil and on the good and sends rain on the just and on the unjust."

39A (2:5.2) It is wrong to think of God as being coaxed into loving his children because of the sacrifices of his Sons or the intercession of his subordinate creatures, "for the Father himself loves you." It is in response to this paternal affection that God sends the marvelous Adjusters [each a pure spirit portion of God within; the will of God] to indwell the minds of men. God's love is universal; "whosoever will may come." He would "have all men be saved by coming into the knowledge of the truth." He is "not willing that any should perish."

39B (2:5.4) God is divinely kind to sinners. When rebels return to righteousness, they are mercifully received, "for our God will abundantly pardon." "I am He who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember your sins." "Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed upon us that we should be called the sons of God."

39C (2:5.6) ... ponder the solemn fact that God lives within you; He has in his own way already bridged the gulf. He has sent of himself, his spirit, to live in you and to toil with you as you pursue your eternal universe career. [God has now become as you are ! so that you may become as He is -- perfect in spirit destiny attainment !]

40A (2:5.10) But the love of God is an intelligent and farseeing parental affection. The divine love functions in unified association with divine wisdom and all other infinite characteristics of the perfect nature of the Universal Father. [Very Important:] God is love, but love is not God. The greatest manifestation of the divine love for mortal beings is observed in the bestowal of the Thought Adjusters, but your greatest revelation of the Father's love is seen in the bestowal life of his Son [Jesus Christ] Michael as He lived on earth the ideal spiritual life. It is the indwelling Adjuster who individualizes the love of God to each human soul.

40C (2:5.12) When man loses sight of the love of a personal God, the kingdom of God becomes merely the kingdom of good. Notwithstanding the infinite unity of the divine nature, [infinite, pure, divine (agape)] love is the dominant characteristic of all God's personal dealings with his creatures.


40C (2:6.1) In the physical universe we may see the divine beauty, in the intellectual world we may discern eternal truth, but the goodness of God is found only in the spiritual world of personal religious experience. In its true essence, religion is a faith-trust in the goodness of God. ... This goodness of God is a part of the Personality of God, and its full revelation appears only in the personal religious experience of the believing sons of God.

41A (2:6.3) The "richness of the goodness of God leads erring man to repentance." "Every good gift and every perfect gift comes down from the Father of Lights." "God is good; He is the eternal refuge of the souls of men." "The Lord God is merciful and gracious. He is long-suffering and abundant in goodness and truth." "Taste and see that the Lord is good ! Blessed is the man who trusts him." "The Lord is gracious and full of compassion. He is the God of salvation." "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up the wounds of the soul. He is man's all-powerful benefactor."

41A (2:6.4) ... Jesus revealed God as the Father of each human being. The entire mortal concept of God is transcendently Illuminated by the Life of Jesus. Selflessness is inherent in parental love. God loves not like a father, but as a Father. He is the Paradise Father of every universe personality.

41C (2:6.6) ... God as a Father transcends God as a judge.

42A (2:6.9) Facing the world of personality, God is discovered to be a loving person; facing the spiritual world, He is a personal love; in religious experience He is both. Love identifies the volitional will of God. The goodness of God rests at the bottom of the divine free-willness -- the universal tendency to love, show mercy, manifest patience, and minister forgiveness.


42B (2:7.3) Divine truth, final truth, is uniform and universal, ...

42C (2:7.4) ... Truth is beautiful because it is both replete and symmetrical. When man searches for truth, he pursues the divinely Real.

42D (2:7.6) Divine truth is best known by its spiritual flavor.

43B (2:7.10) The religious challenge of this age is to those farseeing and forward-looking men and women of spiritual insight who will dare to construct a new and appealing philosophy of living out of the enlarged and exquisitely integrated modern concepts of cosmic truth, universe beauty, and divine goodness. Such a new and righteous vision of morality will attract all that is good in the mind of man and challenge that which is best in the human soul. Truth, beauty, and goodness are divine realities, and as man ascends the scale of spiritual living, these supreme qualities of the Eternal become increasingly coordinated and unified in God, who is love.

43C (2:7.11) All truth -- material, philosophic, or spiritual -- is both beautiful and good. All real beauty -- material art or spiritual symmetry -- is both true and good. All genuine goodness -- whether personal morality, social equity, or divine ministry -- is equally true and beautiful.

43D (2:7.12) Truth is coherent, beauty attractive, goodness stabilizing. And when these values of that which is real are coordinated in personality experience, the result is a high order of love conditioned by wisdom and qualified by loyalty.

43D (2:7.13) {Presented by a Divine Counselor acting by authority of the Ancients of Days on Uversa.}
