Man's ability to do evil is his quarantee of his freewill and freedom. That freedom to commit iniquity, however, carries an ultimate consequence -
the dissolution of his consciousness and personality - the second death.
The term "kingdom of God or heaven"
is the most misunderstood term in the whole Bible.
In Luke 17:20-21 Jesus was quoted as saying:
"The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, 21 nor will people say, 'Here it is,' or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within you." NIV
This rules out any and all institutional churches as being the "kingdom of heaven" but not the individual member who alone knows as to whether or not the prepersonal spirit of the Universal Father - the Thought Adjuster, the WILL of God - truly reigns within - in his/her mind, heart, and soul.
In the Urantia Book , Jesus gave the clearest meaning of the term saying:
"This is the kingdom of heaven: 'God is your Father and you are His son and this good news (Gospel), if you wholeheartedly believe it, is your eternal salvation.'" Paper 141.6.4
To believe in our divine sonship as Jesus did is to live life as Jesus lived - loving God as Father, doing His WILL, and loving our neighbors as our brothers and sisters in spirit.
Since all men (and women) have God for their Father, then we are all brothers
just as Jesus of Nazareth is our brother.
In John 20:17. Jesus said,
"Do not hold on to me, for I have not yet returned to the Father. Go instead to my brothers and tell them, 'I am returning to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.'" NIV
Thus, the cause of man's inhumanity to man, often in the name of one's god, is man's rejection of the ONE UNIVERSAL GOD as FATHER OF ALL HUMANKIND and consequently his rejection of his neighbors as his brothers deserving of his loving care in thoughts, words, and deeds at times of his neighbors' needs.
Jesus of Nazareth, Son of God and Son of Man, is my elder brother in spirit and yours as well but He is also the SOVEREIGN of our local universe of Nebadon and
TITULAR PRINCE of our planet Earth/Urantia.
"A Creator Son of God became one of you; he is your elder brother in fact; and if in spirit you become truly related brothers of Christ, the victorious Michael, then in spirit must you also be sons of that Father which you have in common-even
the Universal Father of all."
Any so-called spiritual revelations
which are not ANCHORED on Jesus of Nazareth, His life, teachings, passion, blood, and death on the cross as
revealed in the Bible and in the Urantia Book
cannot have the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Truth,
as their source as the Biblical verses below reveal.
25 "All this I have spoken while still with you. 26 But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you." NIV
God has raised this Jesus to life, and we are all witnesses of the fact. 33 Exalted to the right hand of God, he has received from the Father the promised Holy Spirit and has poured out what you now see and hear. NIV
15 "If you love me, you will obey what I command. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans;
I will come to you." NIV
26 "When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me. 27 And you also must testify, for you have been with me from the beginning." NIV
"But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14 He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. 15 All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you."NIV
Through Faith in Jesus of Nazareth, the Incarnation of Christ Michael, Son of God and Son of Man, Creator and Sovereign of our Local Universe NEBADON, Titular Prince of our Planet Urantia/Earth, and Head of all human and angelic governments on earth, it is our VISION
"To bring UNITY and PEACE to all Religious Faiths as their leaders learn that in our planet Earth/Urantia, by whatever name they call their god, ALL HAVE ONE AND THE SAME GOD, GOD THE UNIVERSAL FATHER, CALLING THEM TO SUBMIT TO HIS ONE WILL:
'BE PERFECT EVEN AS I AM PERFECT!'"
Our desire to do the WILL of GOD can only begin by accepting the presence in our individual minds God's prepersonal spirit, the Thought Adjuster, that indwells the human mind to initiate the spiritualization of our minds and the evoluton of our immortal souls, and through the ministrations of Jesus Christ's Spirit of Truth that the Universal Father poured out upon all flesh, Who accompanies man throughout his spiritual evolution into divine perfection [Updated 09/29/14].
My Prayer for My Spiritual Evolution
Dr. Isabelo S. Alcordo, (Ph.D.)
ONE ETERNAL UNDIVIDED GOD
in Whom we live, move, and have our being,
Who manifests His Infinite Reality in Three Persons as
- GOD the UNIVERSAL FATHER - GOD the ETERNAL SON - GOD the INFINITE SPIRIT -
The PARADISE TRINITY
WHO AS ONE AND IN COMPLETE UNITY OF WILL
CREATED THE HEAVENS OF EVER-EXPANDING SPACE-TIME-ENERGY
WITH WHICH YOUR
LOCAL UNIVERSE CREATOR SONS and LOCAL UNIVERSE CREATIVE SPIRITS
(the Sons of the Universal Father and the Eternal Son and the Daughters of the Infinite Spirit)
FORMED THE NUMEROUS PLANETS AS THE DWELLING PLACE OF
THEIR DIVERSE CREATURES
with planet Earth/Urantia for us humans
which in Your Divine Wisdom for cosmic administration organized the planets into system, systems into constellation, constellations into local universe,
and local universes into the seven superuniverses
that You set around Your very own Co-Eternal Central Universe of Havona
with the Isle of Paradise at its very center wherein You dwell among the Paradise Deities, Divines, and human Finaliters.
For these, we adore you, worship you, and praise You for Your glory.
And we thank You for Your provision, protection, and healing mercies in your forgiveness of our sins and the redemption of our world from spiritual darkness and isolation resulting from Lucifer's rebellion in the Person of
JESUS OF NAZARETH
Who referred to Himself as
"SON OF GOD, SON OF MAN"
Whom we Gentiles received as
"THE CHRIST - OUR SAVIOR AND LORD"
according to the prophecies of the Jewish prophets and
Whose life-teachings, passion, blood, and death on the cross set humanity
free from the religious laws of Moses and of the Jewish nation with their brutal penalties and curses for their violations
Whose RESURRECTION FROM THE DEAD INTO DIVINITY
confirmed the MAN JESUS as the
INCARNATION OF CHRIST MICHAEL,
the Creator Son and Sovereign of our local Universe Nebadon and Titular Prince of our planet
Who, since then, has been calling us to have FAITH in our own RESURRECTION into our own DIVINITY.
To this end
I pray for the full ministrations of God our Universal Father to complete the
spiritualization of my mind and the evolution of my immortal soul into divine perfection
through Your prepersonal Spirit that indwells my mind, the Thought Adjuster;
I pray for the full ministrations of Christ Jesus-Michael,
Son of God and Son of Man,
to continue to lead me in this life and beyond into greater spiritual truths through
Your Spirit of Truth; and
I pray for the full ministrations of our local Universe Mother Spirit to imbue
my spiritualizing mind and evolving soul with the spirits of
courage, counsel, knowledge, understanding, intuition, worship, and wisdom,
through Your Seven Adjutant Mind Spirits, "the seven spirits of God sent out into all the earth"
and to manifest in my person always the fruits of the work of Your Holy Spirit of
love, peace, joy, faithfulness, gentleness, goodness, long-suffering, meekness, and temperance
as I strive to live the righteousness of Your Kingdom,
"To do Your Will, to be like You,
‘To be Perfect even as You are Perfect’"
to Your glory, Oh One Eternal Undivided God, in the Name of the Paradise Trinity
and to the glory of the Universal Father, the Eternal Son, and the Infinite Spirit
in the Name of Jesus, my Savior and Lord,
Titular Prince of Urantia, and Head of all human and angelic governments
in all the earth.
God's call to us for perfection is in our Love, Mercy, and Service to our fellowman as our brothers and sisters in spirit -
perfections which are within our human ability to be.
