"My Important HighLights of The Urantia (Earth) Book"

Part 1

Compiled March 27, 2023 by Dave@PureChristians.org



0:2.2 Cosmic consciousness implies the recognition of a First Cause, the one and only un-caused Reality. [God is the One Un-caused 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:

0:2.3 #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.]

0:2.4 #2. Personal -- as in the evolutionary experience of created and procreated beings.

0:2.5 #3. Superpersonal -- as in the eventuated existences of certain absonite and associated beings.

0:2.6 GOD is a word symbol designating all personalizations of Deity. The term requires a different definition on each personal level of Deity function and must be still further redefined within each of these levels, as this term may be used to designate the diverse co-ordinate and subordinate personalizations of Deity; for example: the Paradise Creator Sons -- the local universe Fathers. [Our Jesus Christ (aka Jesus Christ Michael) is our Sovereign Co-ordinate Deity Creator Father Who is fully God to us in this local universe. (See John 1:1-18 and Hebrews 1:all) Jesus is both Son of God and Son of Man in One God-Man Combined Spirit Personality; He is also our very Elder Brother and Eternal Companion and Friend and more which is being Revealed in stages as mankind continues to advance in spiritual and intellectual comprehensions.]

0:2.7 The term God, as we make use of it, may be understood:

0:2.8 By designation -- as God the Father.

0:2.9 By context -- as when used in the discussion of some one deity level or association. When in doubt as to the exact interpretation of the word God, it would be advisable to refer it to the person of the Universal Father.

0:2.10 The term God always denotes personality. Deity may, or may not, refer to divinity personalities.

0:2.11 The word GOD is used, in these papers, with the following meanings:

0:2.12 #1. God the Father -- Creator, Controller, and Upholder. The Universal Father, the First Person of Deity.

0:2.13 #2. God the Son -- Co-ordinate Creator, Spirit Controller, and Spiritual Administrator. The Eternal Son, the Second Person of Deity.

0:2.14 #3. God the Spirit -- Conjoint Actor, Universal Integrator, and Mind Bestower. The Infinite Spirit, the Third Person of Deity.

0:2.15 #4. God the Supreme -- the actualizing or evolving God of time and space. Personal Deity associatively realizing the time-space experiential achievement of creature-Creator identity. The Supreme Being is personally experiencing the achievement of Deity unity as the evolving and experiential God of the evolutionary creatures of time and space.

0:2.16 #5. God the Sevenfold -- Deity personality anywhere actually functioning in time and space. The personal Paradise Deities and their creative associates functioning in and beyond the borders of the central universe and power-personalizing as the Supreme Being on the first creature level of unifying Deity revelation in time and space. This level, the grand universe, is the sphere of the time-space descension of Paradise personalities in reciprocal association with the time-space ascension of evolutionary creatures.

0:2.17 #6. God the Ultimate -- the eventuating God of supertime and transcended space. The second experiential level of unifying Deity manifestation. God the Ultimate implies the attained realization of the synthesized absonite-superpersonal, time-space-transcended, and eventuated-experiential values, co-ordinated on final creative levels of Deity reality.

0:2.18 #7. God the Absolute -- the experientializing God of transcended superpersonal values and divinity meanings, now existential as the Deity Absolute. This is the third level of unifying Deity expression and expansion. On this supercreative level, Deity experiences exhaustion of personalizable potential, encounters completion of divinity, and undergoes depletion of capacity for self-revelation to successive and progressive levels of other-personalization. Deity now encounters, impinges upon, and experiences identity with, the Unqualified Absolute.


0:3.1 Total, infinite reality is existential in seven phases and as seven co-ordinate Absolutes:

0:3.2 #1. The First Source and Center.

0:3.3 #2. The Second Source and Center.

0:3.4 #3. The Third Source and Center.

0:3.5 #4. The Isle of Paradise.

0:3.6 #5. The Deity Absolute.

0:3.7 #6. The Universal Absolute.

0:3.8 #7. The Unqualified Absolute.

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

0:3.9 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]

0:3.10 God -- the Universal Father -- is the personality of the First Source and Center and as such maintains personal relations of infinite control over all co-ordinate and subordinate sources and centers. Such control is personal and infinite in potential, even though it may never actually function owing to the perfection of the function of such co-ordinate and subordinate sources and centers and personalities.

0:3.11 The First Source and Center is, therefore, primal in all domains: deified or undeified, personal or impersonal, actual or potential, finite or infinite. No thing or being, no relativity or finality, exists except in direct or indirect relation to, and dependence on, the primacy of the First Source and Center. [I add that God could also be described as The Primal and Final Father-Force-Source-Center-Infinite I AM and other similar descriptions to help finite human comprehensions of our Universal Father God in more unqualified Reality levels and senses.] ...

0:3.12 The First Source and Center is related to the universe as:

0:3.13 #1. The gravity forces of the material universes are convergent in the gravity center of nether Paradise. That is just why the geographic location of his person is eternally fixed in absolute relation to the force-energy center of the nether or material plane of Paradise. But the absolute personality of Deity exists on the upper or spiritual plane of Paradise.

0:3.14 #2. The mind forces are convergent in the Infinite Spirit; the differential and divergent cosmic mind in the Seven Master Spirits; the factualizing mind of the Supreme as a time-space experience in Majeston.

0:3.15 #3. The universe spirit forces are convergent in the Eternal Son.

0:3.16 #4. The unlimited capacity for deity action resides in the Deity Absolute.

0:3.17 #5. The unlimited capacity for infinity response exists in the Unqualified Absolute.

0:3.18 #6. The two Absolutes—Qualified and Unqualified—are co-ordinated and unified in and by the Universal Absolute.

0:3.19 #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 !!]



0:4.11 PARADISE is a term inclusive of the personal and the nonpersonal focal Absolutes of all phases of universe reality. Paradise, properly qualified, may connote any and all forms of reality, Deity, divinity, personality, and energy—spiritual, mindal, or material. All share Paradise as the place of origin, function, and destiny, as regards values, meanings, and factual existence.

0:4.12 The Isle of Paradise—Paradise not otherwise qualified—is the Absolute of the material-gravity control of the First Source and Center. Paradise is motionless, being the only stationary thing in the universe of universes. The Isle of Paradise has a universe location but no position in space. This eternal Isle is the actual source of the physical universes—past, present, and future. The nuclear Isle of Light is a Deity derivative, but it is hardly Deity; neither are the material creations a part of Deity; they are a consequence.

0:4.13 Paradise is not a creator; it is a unique controller of many universe activities, far more of a controller than a reactor. Throughout the material universes Paradise influences the reactions and conduct of all beings having to do with force, energy, and power, but Paradise itself is unique, exclusive, and isolated in the universes. Paradise represents nothing and nothing represents Paradise. It is neither a force nor a presence; it is just Paradise.


0:5.1 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.

0:5.2 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 !]

0:5.3 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.

0:5.4 All subinfinite orders and phases of personality are associative attainables and are potentially cocreational. The prepersonal, the personal, and the superpersonal are all linked together by mutual potential of co-ordinate attainment, progressive achievement, and cocreational capacity. But never does the impersonal directly transmute to the personal. 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.

0:5.5 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.

0:5.6 These qualities of universal reality are manifest in earthly human experience on the following levels:

0:5.7 #1. Body. The material or physical organism of man. The living electrochemical mechanism of animal nature and origin.

0:5.8 #2. Mind. The thinking, perceiving, and feeling mechanism of the human organism. The total conscious and unconscious experience. The intelligence associated with the emotional life reaching upward through worship and wisdom to the spirit level.

0:5.9 #3. Spirit. The divine spirit that indwells the mind of man -- the Thought Adjuster. This immortal spirit is prepersonal -- not a personality, though destined to become a part of the personality of the surviving mortal creature.

0:5.10 #4. Soul. The soul of man is an experiential acquirement. As a mortal creature chooses to "do the will of the Father in heaven," so the indwelling spirit becomes the father of a new reality in human experience. The mortal and material mind is the mother of this same emerging reality. The substance of this new reality is neither material nor spiritual -- it is morontial. This is the emerging and immortal soul which is destined to survive mortal death and begin the Paradise ascension.

0:5.11 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.

0:5.12 Morontia is a term designating a vast level intervening between the material and the spiritual. It may designate personal or impersonal realities, living or nonliving energies. The warp of morontia is spiritual; its woof is physical.



0:6.8 Mind is a phenomenon connoting the presence-activity of living ministry in addition to varied energy systems; and this is true on all levels of intelligence. In personality, mind ever intervenes between spirit and matter; therefore is the universe illuminated by three kinds of light: material light, intellectual insight, and spirit luminosity.

0:6.9 Light -- spirit luminosity -- is a word symbol, a figure of speech, which connotes the personality manifestation characteristic of spirit beings of diverse orders. This luminous emanation is in no respect related either to intellectual insight or to physical-light manifestations. [Yes, God is the infinite Light, more correctly, the infinite Spirit Luminosity Personality Presence.] ...

0:6.10 Pattern is a master design from which copies are made. Eternal Paradise is the absolute of patterns; the Eternal Son is the pattern personality; the Universal Father is the direct ancestor-source of both. But Paradise does not bestow pattern, and the Son cannot bestow personality. ...


0:8.1 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:

0:8.2 #1. The Paradise Creator Sons.

0:8.3 #2. The Ancients of Days.

0:8.4 #3. The Seven Master Spirits.

0:8.5 #4. The Supreme Being.

0:8.6 #5. God the Spirit.

0:8.7 #6. God the Son.

0:8.8 #7. God the Father.

0:8.9 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.

0:8.10 The grand universe is the threefold Deity domain of the Trinity of Supremacy, God the Sevenfold, and the Supreme Being. God the Supreme is potential in the Paradise Trinity, from whom he derives his personality and spirit attributes; but he is now actualizing in the Creator Sons, Ancients of Days, and the Master Spirits, from whom he derives his power as Almighty to the superuniverses of time and space. This power manifestation of the immediate God of evolutionary creatures actually time-space evolves concomitantly with them. The Almighty Supreme, evolving on the value-level of nonpersonal activities, and the spirit person of God the Supreme are one reality -- the Supreme Being.

0:8.11 [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.

0:8.12 The function of God the Sevenfold dates from the organization of the seven superuniverses, and it will probably expand in connection with the future evolution of the creations of outer space. The organization of these future universes of the primary, secondary, tertiary, and quartan space levels of progressive evolution will undoubtedly witness the inauguration of the transcendent and absonite approach to Deity.


0:9.1 Just as the Supreme Being progressively evolves from the antecedent divinity endowment of the encompassed grand universe potential of energy and personality, so does God the Ultimate eventuate from the potentials of divinity residing in the transcended time-space domains of the master universe. The actualization of Ultimate Deity signalizes absonite unification of the first experiential Trinity and signifies unifying Deity expansion on the second level of creative self-realization. This constitutes the personality-power equivalent of the universe experiential-Deity actualization of Paradise absonite realities on the eventuating levels of transcended time-space values. The completion of such an experiential unfoldment is designed to afford ultimate service-destiny for all time-space creatures who have attained absonite levels through the completed realization of the Supreme Being and by the ministry of God the Sevenfold.

0:9.2 God the Ultimate is designative of personal Deity functioning on the divinity levels of the absonite and on the universe spheres of supertime and transcended space. The Ultimate is a supersupreme eventuation of Deity. The Supreme is the Trinity unification comprehended by finite beings; the Ultimate is the unification of the Paradise Trinity comprehended by absonite beings.

0:9.3 The Universal Father, through the mechanism of evolutionary Deity, is actually engaged in the stupendous and amazing act of personality focalization and power mobilization, on their respective universe meaning-levels, of the divine reality values of the finite, the absonite, and even of the absolute.

0:9.4 The first three and past-eternal Deities of Paradise--the Universal Father, the Eternal Son, and the Infinite Spirit--are, in the eternal future, to be personality-complemented by the experiential actualization of associate evolutionary Deities--God the Supreme, God the Ultimate, and possibly God the Absolute.

0:9.5 God the Supreme and God the Ultimate, now evolving in the experiential universes, are not existential--not past eternals, only future eternals, time-space-conditioned and transcendental-conditioned eternals. They are Deities of supreme, ultimate, and possibly supreme-ultimate endowments, but they have experienced historic universe origins. They will never have an end, but they do have personality beginnings. They are indeed actualizations of eternal and infinite Deity potentials, but they themselves are neither unqualifiedly eternal nor infinite.


0:10.1 There are many features of the eternal reality of the Deity Absolute which cannot be fully explained to the time-space finite mind, but the actualization of God the Absolute would be in consequence of the unification of the second experiential Trinity, the Absolute Trinity. This would constitute the experiential realization of absolute divinity, the unification of absolute meanings on absolute levels; but we are not certain regarding the encompassment of all absolute values since we have at no time been informed that the Qualified Absolute [the Deity Absolute] is the equivalent of the Infinite. Superultimate destinies are involved in absolute meanings and infinite spirituality, and without both of these unachieved realities we cannot establish absolute values.

0:10.2 God the Absolute is the realization-attainment goal of all superabsonite beings, but the power and personality potential of the Deity Absolute transcends our concept, and we hesitate to discuss those realities which are so far removed from experiential actualization.

Part 2

Compiled March 29, 2023 by Dave@PureChristians.org



0:11.1 When the combined thought of the Universal Father and the Eternal Son, functioning in the God of Action, constituted the creation of the [eternal] divine and central universe, the Father followed the expression of his thought into the word of his Son and the act of their Conjoint Executive by differentiating his Havona [one billion immense ultimate-absolute heavenly spheres that travel around the nuclear Isle of Paradise in seven elliptical orbits. This is a long training school for ascendent spiritualizing humans to attain eternal Paradise Residence.] presence from the potentials of infinity. And these undisclosed infinity potentials remain space concealed in the Unqualified Absolute and divinely enshrouded in the Deity Absolute, while these two become one in the functioning of the Universal Absolute, the unrevealed infinity-unity of the Paradise Father.

0:11.2 Both potency of cosmic force and potency of spirit force are in process of progressive revelation-realization as the enrichment of all reality is effected by experiential growth and through the correlation of the experiential with the existential by the Universal Absolute. By virtue of the equipoising presence of the Universal Absolute, the First Source and Center realizes extension of experiential power, enjoys identification with his evolutionary creatures, and achieves expansion of experiential Deity on the levels of Supremacy, Ultimacy, and Absoluteness.


0:11.12 Always remember: Potential infinity is absolute and inseparable from eternity. Actual infinity in time can never be anything but partial and must therefore be nonabsolute; neither can infinity of actual [I AM] personality be absolute except in unqualified Deity. And it is the differential of infinity potential in the Unqualified Absolute and the Deity Absolute that eternalizes the Universal Absolute, thereby making it cosmically possible to have material universes in space and spiritually possible to have finite personalities in time. [including us !]

0:11.13 The finite can coexist in the cosmos along with the Infinite only because the associative presence of the Universal Absolute so perfectly equalizes the [five] tensions between time and eternity, finity and infinity, reality potential and reality actuality, Paradise and space, man and God. Associatively the Universal Absolute constitutes the identification of the zone of progressing evolutional reality existent in the time-space, and in the transcended time-space, universes of subinfinite Deity manifestation. ...

0:11.15 The Absolute. The two Absolutes -- qualified and unqualified -- while so apparently divergent in function as they may be observed by mind creatures, are perfectly and divinely unified in and by the Universal Absolute. In the last analysis and in the final comprehension all three are one Absolute. On subinfinite levels they are functionally differentiated, but in infinity they are ONE.

0:11.16 We never use the term the Absolute as a negation of aught or as a denial of anything. Neither do we regard the Universal Absolute as self-determinative, a sort of pantheistic and impersonal Deity. The Absolute, in all that pertains to universe personality, is strictly Trinity limited and Deity dominated.


0:12.1 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.

0:12.2 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.

0:12.3 The first and second experiential Trinities, the post-Havona Trinities, cannot be infinite because they embrace derived Deities, Deities evolved by the experiential actualization of realities created or eventuated by the existential Paradise Trinity. Infinity of divinity is being ever enriched, if not enlarged, by finity and absonity of creature and Creator experience.

0:12.4 Trinities are truths of relationship and facts of co-ordinate Deity manifestation. Trinity functions encompass Deity realities, and Deity realities always seek realization and manifestation in personalization. God the Supreme, God the Ultimate, and even God the Absolute are therefore divine inevitabilities. These three experiential Deities were potential in the existential Trinity, the Paradise Trinity, but their universe emergence as personalities of power is dependent in part on their own experiential functioning in the universes of power and personality and in part on the experiential achievements of the post-Havona Creators and Trinities.

0:12.5 The two post-Havona Trinities, the Ultimate and the Absolute experiential Trinities, are not now fully manifest; they are in process of universe realization. These Deity associations may be described as follows:

0:12.6 #1. The Ultimate Trinity, now evolving, will eventually consist of the Supreme Being, the Supreme Creator Personalities, and the absonite Architects of the Master Universe, those unique universe planners who are neither creators nor creatures. God the Ultimate will eventually and inevitably powerize and personalize as the Deity consequence of the unification of this experiential Ultimate Trinity in the expanding arena of the well-nigh limitless master universe.

0:12.7 #2. The Absolute Trinity -- the second experiential Trinity -- now in process of actualization, will consist of God the Supreme, God the Ultimate, and the unrevealed Consummator of Universe Destiny. This Trinity functions on both personal and superpersonal levels, even to the borders of the nonpersonal, and its unification in universality would experientialize Absolute Deity.

0:12.8 The Ultimate Trinity is experientially unifying in completion, but we truly doubt the possibility of such full unification of the Absolute Trinity. Our concept, however, of the eternal Paradise Trinity is an ever-present reminder that Deity trinitization may accomplish what is otherwise nonattainable; hence do we postulate the sometime appearance of the Supreme-Ultimate and the possible trinitization-factualization of God the Absolute.

0:12.9 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.

[NOTE: These terms and definitions are complex; but they help us to understand some unfamiliar terms used throughout this Fifth Epochal Revelation -- The Urantia book, 2097 pages, public domain to allow worldwide sharing. Next, I will be selecting key highlights of spiritual relationships and personal Fatherhood of God and we human sons of God concepts in this Revelation, and not much of the more complex administrative, cosmological, historical and science force-energy-matter content.]


0:12.11 n formulating the succeeding presentations having to do with the portrayal of the character of the Universal Father and the nature of his Paradise associates, together with an attempted description of the perfect central universe and the encircling seven superuniverses, we are to be guided by the mandate of the superuniverse rulers which directs that we shall, in all our efforts to reveal truth and co-ordinate essential knowledge, give preference to the highest existing human concepts pertaining to the subjects to be presented We may resort to pure revelation only when the concept of presentation has had no adequate previous expression by the human mind.

0:12.12 Successive planetary revelations of divine truth invariably embrace the highest existing concepts of spiritual values as a part of the new and enhanced co-ordination of planetary knowledge. Accordingly, in making these presentations about God and his universe associates, we have selected as the basis of these papers more than one thousand human concepts representing the highest and most advanced planetary knowledge of spiritual values and universe meanings. Wherein these human concepts, assembled from the God-knowing mortals of the past and the present, are inadequate to portray the truth as we are directed to reveal it, we will unhesitatingly supplement them, for this purpose drawing upon our own superior knowledge of the reality and divinity of the Paradise Deities and their transcendent residential universe.

0:12.13 We are fully cognizant of the difficulties of our assignment; we recognize the impossibility of fully translating the language of the concepts of divinity and eternity into the symbols of the language of the finite concepts of the mortal mind. 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 Urantia [Earth] the truth concerning the Paradise Deities and the universe of universes.}



1:0.1 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. The truth about the Universal Father had begun to dawn upon mankind when the prophet said: “You, God, are alone; there is none beside you. You have created the heaven and the heaven of heavens, with all their hosts; you preserve and control them. By the Sons of God were the universes made. The Creator covers himself with light as with a garment and stretches out the heavens as a curtain.” Only the concept of the Universal Father—one God in the place of many gods—enabled mortal man to comprehend the Father as divine creator and infinite controller.

1:0.2 The myriads of planetary systems were all made to be eventually inhabited by many different types of intelligent creatures, beings who could know God, receive the divine affection, and love him in return. The universe of universes is the work of God and the dwelling place of his diverse creatures. “God created the heavens and formed the earth; he established the universe and created this world not in vain; he formed it to be inhabited.”

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.

1:0.4 This magnificent and universal injunction to strive for the attainment of the perfection of divinity is the first duty, and should be the highest ambition, of all the struggling creature creation of the God of perfection. This possibility of the attainment of divine perfection is the final and certain destiny of all man's eternal spiritual progress. Humans of Earth can hardly hope to be perfect in the infinite sense, but it is entirely possible for human beings, starting out as they do on this planet, to attain the supernal and divine goal which the infinite God has set for mortal man; and when they do achieve this destiny, they will, in all that pertains to self-realization and mind attainment, be just as replete [fully capable] in their sphere of divine perfection as God himself is in his sphere of infinity and eternity. Such perfection may not be universal in the material sense, unlimited in intellectual grasp, or final in spiritual experience, but it is final and complete in all finite aspects of divinity of will, perfection of personality motivation, and God-consciousness.


1:1.1 Of all the names by which God the Father is known throughout the universes, those which designate him as the First Source and the Universe Center are most often encountered. The First Father is known by various names in different universes and in different sectors of the same universe. The names which the creature assigns to the Creator are much dependent on the creature's concept of the Creator. 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.

1:1.2 The Universal Father never imposes any form of arbitrary recognition, formal worship, or slavish service upon the intelligent will creatures of the universes The evolutionary inhabitants of the worlds of time and space must of themselves -- in their own hearts -- recognize, love, and voluntarily worship him. The Creator refuses to coerce or compel the submission of the spiritual free wills of his material creatures. The affectionate dedication of the human will to the doing of the Father's will is man's choicest gift to God; in fact, such a consecration of creature will constitutes man's only possible gift of true value to the Paradise Father. 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 !]

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."

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 ! ]


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.

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.

1:2.7 The existence of God can never be proved by scientific experiment or by the pure reason of logical deduction. God can be realized only in the realms of human experience; nevertheless, the true concept of the Reality of God is reasonable to logic, plausible to philosophy, essential to religion, and indispensable to any hope of personality survival.

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. The existence of God is utterly beyond all possibility of demonstration except for the contact between the God-consciousness of the human mind and the God-presence of the Thought Adjuster that indwells the mortal intellect and is bestowed upon man as the free gift of the Universal Father. [Before our Creator Father-Son of God Jesus Christ Michael Incarnated here, 7 B.C. to A.D. 30, only the more spiritual humans were qualified to receive (usually unknowingly) a Divine Thought Adjuster (aka Mystery Monitor). When Jesus ascended back to the Paradise Universal Father on May 18, A.D. 30, the Universal Father had Jesus send that same day He the Spirit of All Truth freely flooding down upon all humans in Spirit Luminosity Waves. (and still continuing to us today and in the future!) This universal bestowal of the Spirit of Truth then allowed all normal humans to receive their own Thought Adjuster, in probationary union with that individual human personality !]

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 !]

[Note by Teacher Brother Dave: In our local universe, ALL the fullness and Personal Presence of God the Paradise Universal Father IS in our Master and Maker Jesus Christ Michael; He is a Coordinate Creator Son of God, revealing the Father and Him-Self to us, and is not subordinate; we are subordinate sons of God who gladly follow Jesus into the fullness of God in Him-Self and on Paradise. His Spirit upon and within us mightily confirms this to our individual souls. Amen ! Yes, some of this supernal Revelation may be new to you; please be patient, as the Truth never suffers from honest examination. Key spiritual concepts will be covered in many ways to slowly and surely make this more clear -- more comprehensible -- to all progressing Truth lovers.]


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." Even though you are "the offspring of God," you ought not to think that the Father is like yourselves in form and physique because you are said to be created "in his image" -- indwelt by Mystery Monitors dispatched from the central abode of his eternal presence. Spirit beings are real, notwithstanding they are invisible to human eyes; even though they have not flesh and blood. [Your potentially eternal personality, that you now have, is absolute (unchanging) and begins here as a mortal personality and also a beginning soul personality; as you ascend the many ever higher heavens, you will continue to become more spiritual and less material. The Image of God that you are ! is Spirit and not matter; God is Spirit, and so you, as his beloved son, will eventually become a perfected spirit with residence on eternal, infinite Paradise, the highest heaven and the Home of the Father-Infinite I AM.]

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.]

1:3.3 The Universal Father is not invisible because He is hiding himself away from the lowly creatures of materialistic handicaps and limited spiritual endowments. The situation rather is: "You cannot see my face, for no mortal can see me and live." No material man could behold the spirit God and preserve his mortal existence The glory and the spiritual brilliance [and infinity of Spirit and force-energy and more] of the Divine Personality Presence is impossible of approach by the lower groups of spirit beings or by any order of material personalities. 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 !!] [Using the freely Bestowed Spirit-Mind of Jesus upon you, you may now perceive and recognize the loving and merciful Father God of All Reality ! Amen ! I share this by profound, direct God-conscious spiritual experiences in and with our Good Master Jesus. Thank You our Father and our Son Who Are One in Spirit here !]

1:3.7 In the inner experience of man, mind is joined to matter. Such material- linked minds cannot survive mortal death. The technique of survival is embraced in those adjustments of the human will and those transformations in the mortal mind whereby such a God-conscious intellect gradually becomes spirit taught and eventually spirit led. This evolution of the human mind from matter association to spirit union results in the transmutation of the potentially spirit phases of the mortal mind into the morontia [a soul level higher than the physical but sub-spiritual for now] realities of the immortal soul. Mortal mind subservient to matter is destined to become increasingly material and consequently to suffer eventual personality extinction; mind yielded to spirit is destined to become increasingly spiritual and ultimately to achieve oneness with the surviving and guiding divine spirit and in this way to attain survival and eternity of personality existence. [No human, other than Jesus our Maker and Savior, has become fully spiritual in this brief lifetime ! Thus Jesus has made many higher mansion worlds, and many higher spheres, for our future spiritualization. God and Jesus have both said and eternally say: "Be you perfect, even as I AM perfect." Amen !]

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. [We here now in Jesus' universe know that God the Father-Infinite on Paradise is just as loving and gracious and merciful and good AS JESUS IS !!! Amen ! PLEASE NEVER think that God is more stern, or more aloof, or more judgmental than Jesus is !! GOD IS A PERFECT, ETERNAL, DIVINE LOVING PERSON ! SO IS JESUS ! If some very unspiritual humans here persist in the gross error that "God is wrath and judgment and hell-fire" and has a few "chosen human persons" or "chosen human race", then we can expect many more terrible and devastating wars here, with ever more deadly "hell-fire" and "destroyer" missiles, bombs, rockets, etc. The nature of the "god" or God that you believe in, determines your behavior here on earth ! "Like Father, (perceived) like son." Our True, loving Father God loves each and every human and being of personality EQUALLY ! He is no respecter of persons ! He desires that each and all will CHOOSE to become perfect as HE IS ! He, in Jesus, and in Spirit, has provided The Perfect Way into All Light and All Life !!! "LOVE YOUR ENEMIES !" JESUS DOES ! You will too, if you choose God's will and eternal Life in His Light of Truth ! The only flag of true peace is the flag of Jesus; the flag of allegiance to Jesus and the Trinity Government of All Reality. Human-made patriotic nation flags and uniforms lead to more world wars. Even ungodly "preemptive wars". Count the costs of this war-madness insanity ! More later.]

Part 3

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.

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.]

1:4.3 When you are through down here, when your course has been run in temporary form on earth, when your trial trip in the flesh is finished, when the dust that composes the mortal tabernacle "returns to the earth whence it came"; then, it is revealed, the indwelling "Spirit shall return to God who gave it." 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.]

1:4.4 We are constantly confronted with this mystery of God; we are nonplused by the increasing unfolding of the endless panorama of the Truth of his infinite goodness, endless mercy, matchless wisdom, and superb character. [The best way to realize God is to reflect upon the superb Life and Teachings of Jesus, our perfect pattern-personality Spirit GOD-MAN !]

1:4.5 The divine mystery consists in the inherent difference which exists between the finite and the infinite, the temporal and the eternal, the time-space creature and the Universal Creator, the material and the spiritual, the imperfection of man and the perfection of Paradise Deity. 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.]

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.

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 !]


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.

1:5.2 God is much more than a personality as personality is understood by the human mind; He is even far more than any possible concept of a superpersonality. But it is utterly futile to discuss such incomprehensible concepts of divine personality with the minds of material creatures whose maximum concept of the reality of being consists in the idea and ideal of personality. The material creature's highest possible concept of the Universal Creator is embraced within the spiritual ideals of the exalted idea of divine personality. Therefore, although you may know that God must be much more than the human conception of personality, you equally well know that the Universal Father cannot possibly be anything less than an eternal, infinite, true, good, and beautiful personality. [So True ! God is Personal and the Original, Infinite Personality ! In the future, as humans spiritually and intellectually grasp more of Absolute (Unchanging) Personality, then the present word "personality" will be capitalized, and also humans will be more seen now in the Image of God in Jesus as being divine-humans. Divine-human rights will be put into future world law, as they now are in Heaven. Secular, humanistic "human rights" are a failure; only when each and every human person is seen to be in Spirit and in Truth a divinely Beloved son of God, will divine-human rights be more fully enforced and achieved ! That which this needy world most needs to know is that: YOU and all other humans -- all Men, all Women, all Children, all Zygotes (a living human sperm-egg union) -- ARE NOW divinely beloved sons of God in Jesus !!! That is the challenge of this age -- to share that Good News ever better, worldwide, to each Individual Human Person !]

1:5.3 God is not hiding from any of his creatures. He is unapproachable to so many orders of beings only because He "dwells in a Light which no material creature can approach." The immensity and grandeur of the divine Personality is beyond the grasp of the unperfected mind of evolutionary mortals. He "measures the waters in the hollow of his hand, measures a universe with the span of his hand. It is He who sits on the circle of the earth, who stretches out the heavens as a curtain and spreads them out as a universe to dwell in." "Lift up your eyes on high and behold Who has created all these things, Who brings out their worlds by number and calls them all by their names"; and so it is true that "the invisible things of God are partially understood by the things which are made." Today, and as you are, you must discern the invisible Maker through his manifold and diverse creation, as well as through the Revelation and Ministration of his Sons and their numerous subordinates. [I, daily or more, since May 24, AD1977, thank Jesus for taking me in spirit into eternal, infinite Paradise and in seeing God the Universal Father in Spirit IN AND AS JESUS ... They Are One in Spirit and purpose here; let us Jesusonian Christians be one in spirit purpose to help transform this world as Jesus so desires !]

1:5.4 Even though material mortals cannot see the Person of God, they should rejoice in the assurance that He is a person; by faith accept the Truth which portrays that the Universal Father so loved the world as to provide for the eternal spiritual progression of its lowly inhabitants; that He "delights in his children." God is lacking in none of those superhuman and divine attributes which constitute a perfect, eternal, loving, and infinite Creator Personality. [God cannot be seen with the physical eyes; but his spirit within and Jesus' out-poured Spirit of Truth worldwide allow for you to perceive God and Jesus as One in Spirit in your soul and mind ! This spirit vision can operate even upon humans physically blind ! That makes no difference in Spirit.]

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.

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.

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.

1:5.8 Notwithstanding that God is an eternal power, a majestic presence, a transcendent ideal, and a glorious spirit, though He is all these and infinitely more, nonetheless, He is truly and everlastingly a perfect Creator Personality, a person who can "know and be known," who can "love and be loved," and one who can befriend us; while you can be known, as other humans have been known as the friend of God. He is a real Spirit and a spiritual Reality.

1:5.9 As we [Paradise level Divine Counselors] see the Universal Father revealed throughout his universe; as we discern him indwelling his myriads of creatures; as we behold him in the Persons of his Sovereign Sons; as we continue to sense his divine presence here and there, near and afar, let us not doubt nor question his Personality Primacy. Notwithstanding all these far-flung distributions, He remains a true person and everlastingly maintains personal connection with the countless hosts of his creatures scattered throughout the universe of universes.

1:5.10 The idea of the personality of the Universal Father is an enlarged and truer concept of God which has come to mankind chiefly through revelation. Reason, wisdom, and religious experience all infer and imply the personality of God, but they do not altogether validate it. Even the indwelling Thought Adjuster is prepersonal. The truth and maturity of any religion is directly proportional to its concept of the infinite Personality of God and to its grasp of the absolute unity of Deity. The idea of a personal Deity becomes, then, the measure of religious maturity after religion has first formulated the concept of the unity of God. [GOD IS just as loving and merciful and kind as JESUS IS ! This is fundamental to grasp some of the infinite unity of our Personal, Loving Father ! God never changes in His perfect will (volition) and infinitely good and infinitely loving Fatherly attitude ! He never had "wrath" and never was "sorry that He made Man" in His/Their Own Image in Spirit ! So much of old testament doctrines are very false; pick and choose only as you Know in Spirit and in Truth the nature of Jesus is; and then apply that fully ALSO to the Paradise Father-Infinite I AM. The Father and the Son are One in Spirit here upon and within us ! more later.]

1:5.11 Primitive religion had many personal gods, and they were fashioned in the image of man. Revelation affirms the validity of the personality concept of God which is merely possible in the scientific postulate of a First Cause and is only provisionally suggested in the philosophic idea of Universal Unity. 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.

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.

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.

1:5.14 God, being eternal, universal, absolute, and infinite, does not grow in knowledge nor increase in wisdom. God does not acquire experience, as finite man might conjecture or comprehend, but He does, within the realms of his own eternal Personality, enjoy those continuous expansions of self-realization which are in certain ways comparable to, and analogous with, the acquirement of new experience by the finite creatures of the evolutionary worlds. [God is also experiencing spiritually and personally within and as each of the nearly infinite number of perfecting humans and countless other sub-absolute beings in the universe of universes and beyond; and this seems to me to be an obvious way in which the Paradise Father I AM continues to ever expand in unqualified Self-Realizations.]

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.

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 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 !]

1:6.2 God is to science a cause, to philosophy an idea, to religion a person, even the loving heavenly Father. God is to the scientist a primal force, to the philosopher a hypothesis of unity, to the religionist a living spiritual experience. 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.

1:6.3 Never lose sight of the antipodal viewpoints of personality as it is conceived by God and man. Man views and comprehends personality, looking from the finite to the infinite; God looks from the infinite to the finite. 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. [In the future, when mankind grasps more of Personality and Divine-Humanity in Spirit and in Truth, these words will be capitalized as I often do here. Personality is absolute and absolutely UNIQUE in both time and in eternity. Thus, you never change in personality ! And you forevermore grow in spirit, soul, mind and ever higher bodies without end and still You Are the same Personality: I Am of I AM ... the often heard personality disorder here of "multiple personalities" is impossible; each Human Person has only one True Unchanging Personality; the idea of different characters is just a mind disorder caused by stress, and is actually the acting or role-playing of One Real Personality under severe mental or soul (psychic) stresses. Personality is just as high and real as pure Spirit; and both are higher than soul which is higher than mind which is higher than body-brain.]

1:6.4 The prepersonal divine spirit which indwells the mortal mind carries, in its very presence, the valid proof of its actual existence, but the concept of the divine personality can be grasped only by the spiritual insight of genuine personal religious experience. Any person, human or divine, may be known and comprehended quite apart from the external reactions or the material presence of that person.

1:6.5 Some degree of moral affinity and spiritual harmony is essential to friendship between two persons; a loving personality can hardly reveal himself to a loveless person. Even to approach the knowing of a divine Personality, all of man's personality endowments must be wholly consecrated to the effort; halfhearted, partial devotion will be unavailing.

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 !]

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.

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 !]


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.]

1:7.2 Man does not achieve union with God as a drop of water might find unity with the ocean. Man attains divine union by progressive reciprocal spiritual communion, by personality intercourse with the personal God, by increasingly attaining the divine nature through wholehearted and intelligent conformity to the divine will. Such a sublime relationship can exist only between personalities.

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 !]

1:7.4 We [Paradise level Divine Counselors] cannot fully understand how God can be primal, changeless, all-powerful, and perfect, and at the same time be surrounded by an ever-changing and apparently law-limited universe, an evolving universe of relative imperfections. But we can know such a truth in our own personal experience since we all maintain identity of personality and unity of will in spite of the constant changing of both ourselves and our environment.

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. [I am given to Know God as an infinite Personality of love, mercy, Light and Life -- and more -- since my Spirit Birth-Day of May 24, AD1977 and forevermore ! Thank You Jesus, for directly Revealing the Father of All Reality and Your-Self to me ! One in Spirit ! We are now living in an age of great spiritual down-graspings to Transform more and more individual humans into better knowing and doing God's will here on earth ! Only Spirit-transformed humans can help make a more spiritually transformed world which is here destined for Divine Light and Life ! Jesus prayed: "Father, Your Kingdom (Family) come; here on earth as it is in Heaven !" Yes !]

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.

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.

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. I am fully aware that I have at my command no language adequate to make clear to the mortal mind how these universe problems appear to us. But you should not become discouraged; not all of these things are wholly clear to even the high personalities belonging to my group of Paradise beings. 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.

1:7.9 {Presented by a Divine Counselor, a member of a group of celestial personalities assigned by the Ancients of Days on Uversa, the headquarters of the seventh superuniverse, to supervise those portions of this forthcoming revelation which have to do with affairs beyond the borders of your local universe. I am commissioned to sponsor those papers portraying the nature and attributes of God because I represent the highest source of information available for such a purpose on any inhabited world. I have served as a Divine Counselor in all seven of the superuniverses and have long resided at the Paradise center of all things. Many times have I enjoyed the supreme pleasure of a sojourn in the immediate personal presence of the Universal Father. I portray the reality and truth of the Father's nature and attributes with unchallengeable authority; I know whereof I speak.}

Compiled April 03, 2023 by Dave@PureChristians.org



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.

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 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.

2:0.3 In all our efforts to enlarge and spiritualize the human concept of God, we are tremendously handicapped by the limited capacity of the mortal mind. We are also seriously handicapped in the execution of our assignment by the limitations of language and by the poverty of material which can be utilized for purposes of illustration or comparison in our efforts to portray divine values and to present spiritual meanings to the finite, mortal mind of man. 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.


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.

2:1.4 The Father constantly and unfailingly meets the need of the differential of demand for Himself as it changes from time to time in various sections of his master universe. The great God knows and understands Himself; He is infinitely self-conscious of all his primal attributes of perfection. God is not a cosmic accident; neither is He a universe experimenter. The Universe Sovereigns [Universe Creators such as our Maker and Master Jesus] may engage in adventure; the Constellation Fathers [the Most Highs; lesser, lesser Christ types] may experiment; the system heads [lower yet, 100 systems in a constellation; 100 constellations in a local universe. Also, when done, 1000 planets per system. Thus our local universe made and perfectly Controlled by Jesus Christ Michael will have ten million human-inhabited worlds when done.] may practice; but the Universal Father sees the end from the beginning, and his divine plan and eternal purpose actually embrace and comprehend all the experiments and all the adventures of all his subordinates in every world, system, and constellation in every universe of his vast domains. [Jesus Christ Michael is not subordinate as the lower constellation and lower system and lower planetary rulers are; Jesus is Coordinate Deity, a Master Creator Son of God and the Fullness of God here to us ! HE IS I AM as I AM has so willed. At the Transfiguration of Jesus, up on Mount Hermon, in the land of the gentiles, GOD the Father-Infinite I AM spoke/still speaks: "This is My Beloved SON (JESUS); give heed to Him." (only ! Obey and follow only Jesus !)]

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. [GOD sees you, in Jesus, now perfect ! and AS You will Be in some more trillions of years, ascending and perfecting in Spirit in the over one billion ever higher heavens ! (Real and Super-Real Spiritual spheres, not seen in our physical telescopes)] He is the great and only I AM.

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.

2:1.7 And all this necessitates such arrangements for contact and communication with his manifold creatures as have been ordained, first, in the personalities of the Paradise Sons of God, who, although perfect in divinity, also often partake of the nature of the very flesh and blood of the planetary races, becoming one of you and one with you; thus, as it were, God becomes man, as occurred in the bestowal of [Jesus Christ] Michael, Who was called interchangeably the Son of God and the Son of Man. [Jesus today IS our One True GOD-MAN and He is One Eternal Personality !] And second, there are the personalities of the Infinite Spirit, [also called here the Daughters of God, many types of angels] the various orders of the seraphic hosts and other celestial intelligences who draw near to the material beings of lowly origin and in so many ways minister to them and serve them. and third, there are the impersonal Mystery Monitors, Thought Adjusters, the actual gift of the great God himself sent to indwell such as the humans of earth, sent without announcement and without explanation. In endless profusion they descend from the heights of Glory to grace and indwell the humble minds of those mortals who possess the capacity for God-consciousness or the potential [!!] therefor. [Thank You, Jesus Christ Michael !!] [Since A.D. 30, when Jesus ascended ck into the Father I AM. and They as One Spirit sent He the Spirit of Truth upon all human flesh here; this qualifies each and every human being as a divinely beloved son of God in Jesus !!! Those defective or aborted humans who can not achieve God-consciousness here; will be repersonalized up on the first of the next seven (higher) Mansion Worlds made by Jesus for our rehabilitation and further perfection ! Now you see why Jesus tells us to dare to love even our "enemies" as they will all be with us up in the next higher heavens ! All humans here (other than Jesus Christ) have sinned and are very very very far short of the perfect Glory of God and Being perfectly Godlike ! We start out in bodies of dust with many residual animal emotions and thus all of us have a very very very long way to go into Finality Perfection and Paradise Residence. All Persons, Beings and Entities on infinite-sized Paradise are perfect in Spirit Nature; but not all-knowing and not all -powerful; Only God and His Coordinate Agents Are; as He so wills.]

2:1.10 Because the First Father is Infinite in His Plans and Eternal in His Purposes, it is inherently impossible for any finite being ever to grasp or comprehend these divine plans and purposes in their fullness. Mortal man can glimpse the Father's purposes only now and then, here and there, as they are revealed in relation to the outworking of the plan of creature ascension on its successive levels of universe progression. 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 !]

2:1.11 Divinity and eternity the Father shares with large numbers of the higher Paradise beings, but we question whether infinity and consequent universal primacy is fully shared with any save his co-ordinate associates of the Paradise Trinity. 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.]


2:2.1 Even your olden prophets understood the eternal, never-beginning, never-ending, circular nature of the Universal Father. God is literally and eternally present in his universe of universes. 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." Our knowledge of the universe of universes discloses not only that He is the Father of Lights, but also that in his conduct of inter- planetary affairs there "is no variableness neither shadow of changing." He "declares the end from the beginning." He says: "My counsel shall stand; I will do all my pleasures" "according to the eternal purpose which I purposed in my Son." Thus are the plans and purposes of the First Source and Center like himself: eternal, perfect, and forever changeless.

2:2.2 There is finality of completeness and perfection of repleteness in the mandates of the Father. "Whatsoever God does, it shall be forever; nothing can be added to it nor anything taken from it." 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. "A thousand years in his sight are but as yesterday when it is past and as a watch in the night." The perfection of divinity and the magnitude of eternity are forever beyond the full grasp of the circumscribed mind of mortal man. [Our Creator Son of God Jesus Christ perfectly portrays the perfect, unchanging nature of God to us ! The Father God of All Reality on Paradise is just as kind, and loving as Jesus is ! In the Bible, Old Testament, there are many passages which falsely show an emotional, changing, merely human-like finite god ! That is so wrong ! That was the simplistic views of early (usually well-meaning) uneducated and nonspiritual humans. For example, in the 150 Psalms, written by over 20 humans over about an 1100 year period, you will find descriptions of God there ranging from the very early barbaric savage "demon god" "Yahweh" up to the better views of a loving, perfect, unchanging (Absolute) and Infinite Father God I AM. Jesus took only the very best of the Old Testament and then elevated those to even much higher and truer Revelations of our Father God of All; both in Jesus' Teachings about Elohim (The Triune God) and in Jesus' perfect Life examples ! Behold the Man ! Behold our God ! Behold our One GOD-MAN JESUS ! See Jesus; See God and see a Spirit-perfected Man as One Person Jesus Christ Michael !]

2:2.7 Human limitations, potential evil, are not a part of the divine nature, but mortal experience with evil and all man's relations thereto are most certainly a part of God's ever-expanding self-realization in the children of time--creatures of moral responsibility who have been created or evolved by every Creator Son going out from Paradise. [Yes, all humans on earth and in this local universe are created by our Jesus Christ Michael. God and Jesus have both declared to us: "Be you perfect; even as I AM perfect." This implies that we start out in this first life in imperfection. Because of the pure, perfect spirit of God within each of us, we surely know that we are not perfect here now ! All humans do much err and frequently sin; but our divine Destiny is to be eventually perfect if we continue to ever follow Jesus and his perfect, loving and merciful Spirit Guidance into the Paradise Father I AM. Amen !]


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.]

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! "Be not deceived; God is not mocked, for whatsoever a man sows that shall he also reap." True, even in the justice of reaping the harvest of wrongdoing, this divine justice is always tempered with mercy. 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. The final result of wholehearted sin is annihilation. In the last analysis, such sin-identified individuals have destroyed themselves by becoming wholly unreal through their embrace of iniquity. The factual disappearance of such a creature is, however, always delayed until the ordained order of justice current in that universe has been fully complied with. [In the Bible, Book of Revelation, the "final death" is mentioned; this makes the false concept of an "eternal hell-fire" illogical, and not ever possible with our loving and merciful Father God and Creator son Jesus !]

2:3.6 The rule of the Creator Sons in the local universes [each local universe, when completed, will have about ten million human inhabited worlds, and many higher spheres, some through which we will ascend.] 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.


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."

2:4.2 God is inherently kind, naturally compassionate, and everlastingly merciful. And never is it necessary that any influence [especially no mere human "intercessory prayers" ! Prayer is for YOU to to better realize God's will and to change ONLY YOU ! When you pray for the welfare of others, that is good; as that should help to change YOU. Always tell another human that you are praying for them; and then they will see your love and concern and may even pray more themselves for the needed spiritual fruits of the spirit and abiding peace and progress in Jesus.] be brought to bear upon t 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. [Jesus here in Spirit tells us always to try to DARE TO LOVE (with Divine Understanding) EVEN YOUR ENEMIES !]

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. [All Christian Americans, Jewish Israeli and Islamic Palestinians and all 6.5 billion Human Persons on earth are LOVED EQUALLY by both GOD and JESUS, and One in Spirit ! Do you ? Now be fair and just as JESUS IS ! Drop militant nationalism ! Be Active in Godly peace and justice to each and to all Humans; as they each are eternally Divine-Humans in Spirit Destiny potential ! God and Jesus bestow the Eternal Reign of Their One Combined Father-Son Spirit to fall upon and Guide ALL PERSONS ! Amen !]

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 Coordinate Deity-Creator is Jesus Christ Michael; obey and follow Him ! Thank You our One Holy Father-Son-Spirit of Truth ! (Next here we will continue with the love and goodness of God.)]


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."

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."

2:5.3 The Creators [Our Creator Father-Son of God is Jesus Christ Michael] are the very first to attempt to save man from the disastrous results of his foolish transgression of the divine laws. God's love is by nature a fatherly affection; therefore does He somtimes "chasten us for our own profit, that we may be partakers of his holiness." Even during your fiery trials remember that "in all our afflictions He is afflicted with us."

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."

2:5.5 After all, the greatest evidence of the goodness of God and the supreme reason for loving him is the indwelling gift of the Father -- the Adjuster who so patiently awaits the hour when you both shall be eternally made one. Though you cannot find God by searching, [with only the physical eyes and human mind] if you will submit to the leading of the indwelling spirit, you will be unerringly guided, step by step, life by life, through universe upon universe, and age by age, until you finally stand in the presence of the Paradise Personality of the Universal Father. [Wonderful !]

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 !]

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.

2:5.11 At times I am almost pained to be compelled to portray the divine affection of the heavenly Father for his universe children by the employment of the human word symbol love. This term, even though it does connote man's highest concept of the mortal relations of respect and devotion, is so frequently designative of so much of human relationship that is wholly ignoble and utterly unfit to be known by any word which is also used to indicate the matchless affection of the living God for his universe creatures! How unfortunate that I cannot make use of some supernal and exclusive term which would convey to the mind of man the true nature and exquisitely beautiful significance of the divine affection of the Paradise Father. [We can and do see the love of the Father and the Son in the full Life and Teachings of our Master Son of God Jesus ! SEE JESUS; SEE GOD; They are One in SPIRIT !]

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.


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. God could be great and absolute, somehow even intelligent and personal, in philosophy, but in religion God must also be moral; He must be good. Man might fear a great God, but he trusts and loves only a good 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.

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."

2:6.4 The concept of God as a king-judge, although it fostered a high moral standard and created a law-respecting people as a group, left the individual believer in a sad position of insecurity respecting his status in time and in eternity. The later Hebrew prophets proclaimed God to be a Father to Israel; 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.

2:6.5 The erroneous supposition that the righteousness of God was irreconcilable with the selfless love of the heavenly Father, presupposed absence of unity in the nature of Deity and led directly to the elaboration of the atonement doctrine, which is a philosophic assault upon both the unity and the free-willness of God. [Thank You Jesus for showing us the True Father God of Love, Light and Life in and as You !!!]

2:6.6 The affectionate heavenly Father, whose spirit indwells his children on earth, is not a divided personality -- one of justice and one of mercy -- neither does it require a mediator to secure the Father's favor or forgiveness. Divine righteousness is not dominated by strict retributive justice; God as a Father transcends God as a judge.

2:6.7 God is never wrathful, vengeful, or angry. ... The Father is not an inconsistent personality; the divine unity is perfect. In the Paradise Trinity there is absolute unity despite the eternal identities of the co-ordinates of God.

2:6.8 God loves the sinner and hates the sin: such a statement is true philosophically, but God is a transcendent Personality, and persons can only love and hate other persons. Sin is not a person. God loves the sinner because he is a personality reality (potentially eternal), while towards sin God strikes no personal attitude, for sin is not a spiritual reality; it is not personal; therefore does only the justice of God take cognizance of its existence. The love of God saves the sinner; the law of God destroys the sin. [in Psalms 1:6, "The way of the sinner shall be destroyed" (meaning that the sinner will learn to sin no more !)] This attitude of the divine nature would apparently change if the sinner finally identified himself wholly with sin just as the same mortal mind may also fully identify itself with the indwelling spirit Adjuster. Such a sin-identified mortal would then become wholly nonspiritual in nature (and therefore personally unreal) and would experience eventual extinction of being. Unreality, even incompleteness of creature nature, cannot exist forever in a progressively real and increasingly spiritual universe.

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.


2:7.3 [Important paragraph:] Divine truth, final truth, is uniform and universal, but the story of things spiritual, as it is told by numerous individuals hailing from various spheres, may sometimes vary in details owing to this relativity in the completeness of knowledge and in the repleteness of personal experience as well as in the length and extent of that experience. While the laws and decrees, the thoughts and attitudes, of the First Great Source and Center [The Paradise Father-Infinite I AM] are eternally, infinitely, and universally true; at the same time, their application to, and adjustment for, every universe, system, world, and created intelligence, are in accordance with the plans and technique of the Creator Sons as they function in their respective universes, as well as in harmony with the local plans and procedures of the Infinite Spirit and of all other associated celestial personalities.

2:7.4 The false science of materialism would sentence mortal man to become an outcast in the universe. Such partial knowledge is potentially evil; it is knowledge composed of both good and evil. Truth is beautiful because it is both replete and symmetrical. When man searches for truth, he pursues the divinely Real.

2:7.6 Divine truth is best known by its spiritual flavor.

2:7.7 The eternal quest is for unification, for divine coherence. The far-flung physical universe coheres in the Isle of Paradise; the intellectual universe coheres in the God of mind, the Conjoint Actor; [The Infinite Spirit acting for both God the Universal Father and God the Eternal Son] the spiritual universe is coherent in the personality of the Eternal Son. But the isolated mortal of time and space coheres in God the Father through the direct relationship between the indwelling Thought Adjuster and the Universal Father. Man's Adjuster is a fragment of God and everlastingly seeks for divine unification; it coheres with, and in, the Paradise Deity of the First Source and Center.

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.

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. Health, sanity, and happiness are integrations of truth, beauty, and goodness as they are blended in human experience. Such levels of efficient living come about through the unification of energy systems, idea systems, and spirit systems.

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. The real purpose of all universe education is to effect the better co-ordination of the isolated child of the worlds with the larger realities of his expanding experience. Reality is finite on the human level, infinite and eternal on the higher and divine levels. [Seek to be balanced -- coordinated -- as our Master Jesus now perfectly is ! Behold the perfect Spirit GOD-MAN JESUS ! here with us !! If you can not master your mind; you may now freely ask for the perfect Mind of our Master Jesus ! Amen !]
