The Gods cannot or do not transform gross animal beings from the evolutionary planets into a perfected spirit by some sort of creative magic. The morontia life, extending throughout so much of the ascension, is the only possible way to attain perfection and the ability to worship God. I was surprised when I read that ascenders are taught to worship God, and apparently He is the only God of the Trinity that is worshiped. The morontia worlds are the liaison spheres between the material and spiritual levels of ascender existence. All of the spheres around Jerusem and all the spheres in the constellation, plus the universe headquarters- all are morontia spheres. They are all architectural planets and they have double the elements of the evolved planets. They abound in the heavy metals and in crystals. They have 100 forms of an energy organization called morontia material. The Master Physical Controllers and the Morontia Power Supervisors (MPC and MPS) can affect the primary units of matter, transforming these mixtures of energy to form a new substance.
The MPSs are able to effect a union of material and of spiritual energies, thereby organizing a morantia form of materialization which is receptive to the superimposition of a controlling spirit. These patient and skillful MPSs will provide the ascender with 570 perfect morontia bodies, and each one a phase of the mortal’s progressive transformation. MPSs are exclusively devoted to the ministry of morontia progression. They are the channels of morontia power which sustain and energize the morontia phases of the transition worlds. They are the offspring of a local universe Mother Spirit. They are created for their specific function and need no training (that is one of the mysteries I can’t fathom, although we do it with dogs.).
Morontia Companions are the hosts on the morontia and mansion worlds; they are the offspring of the local universe Mother Spirit. They are created in groups of 100,000, and at present there are over 70 billion. What? In Nebadon? In Orvonton? In all 7 superuniverses? They are supervised by the Melchizedeks. They maintain 10,000 headquarters on each of the mansion worlds of a local system. There are two distinct types of MCs, one is aggressive, the other is retiring, but both are equal in status. They are very close to humans: Midway creatures are closest, a person who is psychic could probably see them.
The culture of the fifth mansion world corresponds in general to the early era of light and life on the evolutionary worlds. “Light and Life” means that the whole planet has acheived certain goals; some of these goals are: a world government appears; when all creatures reveal love of the Supreme Being; when possibilities for development are exhausted. Having mastered the language of the local universe, the ascenders now learn the language of Uversa. This is a time of expanding horizons; a real birth of cosmic consciousness takes place on mansonia number five. Study is becoming voluntary; unselfish service natural and worship spontaneous.
On the sixth mansion world ascenders receive their first lessons in the prospective spirit career, which follows immediately after the morontia experience. Next, they begin instruction in universe administration. This time is brilliant for ascending mortals and usually witnesses the fusion of the human mind and the divine Adjuster. The survivor’s angels are summoned and there is a quiet ceremony. The angels say: “This is a beloved son in whom I am well pleased.” This marks the entrance of an ascending mortal upon the eternal career of Paradise service. Then they are granted forty days of spiritual retirement and time to plan the route they will take to Paradise. They are becoming more attractive and compassionate as they finish the morantia experience.
On the seventh mansion world there will be many teachers, all co-operating in the task of preparing the ascender for residence on Jerusem. Each ascender has their own abode. Differences between those from advanced planets and retarded planets will be obliterated during the mansion experience. Things such as unfortunate heredity, unwholesome environment and unspiritual background will be eradicated. The transition world number seven is the Father’s world, and the ascending more deeply worship the Father, which they will do all the way to Paradise.
The ascenders then gather in groups at the sea of glass for the trip to Jerusem. They will arrive as citizens, not visitors, as so many times in the past. They will be enseraphimed, wrapped in angel wings. The top speed of a seraphim is 559,000 miles per second.
On the second mansion world groups start to form and social organizations start to function. It is crowded, but very fraternal; there is no discrimination. Those who lived in a caste system are experiencing freedom. There is a sea of glass on this sphere. A new morontia body is acquired from one mansion world to the next. You go to sleep in the seraphic transport and wake up on the next mansionia with a new body. Your physical brain perished of course, but anything worthwhile and of survival value was retained by the Adjuster as part of personal memory. You continue to eat and drink during your progress through mansonia. The food is special. It leaves no residue; there is no need for toilets. From sphere to sphere you grow more intellectual, less material and slightly more spiritual. Mansonia number two provides for the removal of all phases of intellectual conflict and for the cure of all varieties of mental disharmony.
The third mansion world is the headquarters of the Mansion World Teachers, of which there are millions both on the mansion and morontia worlds. These advanced and glorified cherubim serve as morontia teachers all the way up from the mansion worlds to the last sphere of local universe ascendant training. When you arrive on mansonia two, you have permission to visit transition world one, which is the headquarters of the morontia supervisor for all Satania. On this sphere more positive educational work is begun. The purpose of the training on this third mansonia is to teach the correlation of morontia mota and mortal logic, the co-ordination of morontia mota and human philosophy. This is the real introduction to the intelligent comprehension of cosmic meanings and universe interrelationships. Mota can be compared to the sayings of Jesus or the Book of Proverbs. It’s morontia wisdom.
When you reach the fourth mansion world, you will be able to visit the fourth transition sphere, which is the training school of the superangels. Also, you will be enabled to draw close to the Sons of God on their periodic visits to Satania. Ascenders here develop increased appreciation of the broadcasts and phases of local universe culture and progress. It is here that the ascenders are first introduced to the demands and delights of the true social life of morontia creatures. Activities are not based on evolutionary competition or personal individualism, but on understanding sympathy, mutual appreciation and the realization of a common and supreme destiny-the Paradise goal of worshipful and divine perfection.
In a sense all fifty-six of the encircling worlds of Jerusem are devoted to the transitional culture of ascending mortals, but the seven satellites of world number one are specifically known as the mansion worlds. The seven mansion worlds are in the charge of the morontia supervisors and the Melchizedeks. There is an acting governor on each world responsible to the System Sovereign. Also, the Uversa conciliators maintain headquarters on each mansion world.
Although only finaliters and certain groups of salvaged children and their caretakers are resident on transitional world number one, provision is made for the entertainment of all classes of spirit beings, transition mortals and student visitors. Those who plan games and entertainment are called reversion directors. There is a temple of exquisite beauty in the center of activities on the finaliter world, but it’s not visible to mortals or early morontia beings. All of the spheres have landscapes of extraordinary beauty, and beings called spornagia are responsible for this marvelous display. People who have reached heaven in an NDE have probably come to one of these worlds. They say that the flowers have supernatural qualities and the colors can’t be described. I wouldn’t be surprised if colors sang and sound came in colors. I know what this phenomenon is, but I can’t spell it.
On the mansion worlds the resurrected mortal survivors resume their lives just where they left off when overtaken by death. The center of all activity on the first mansion world is the resurrection hall, the enormous temple of personality assembly. This enormous building is the gathering point of the seraphic destiny guardians, the Thought Adjusters and the archangels of the resurrection. The Life Carriers also have a function in the resurrection of the dead. The mortal mind transcripts and the active creature-memory patterns as transformed from the material levels to the spiritual are the individual possession of the detached Thought Adjusters; these spiritized factors of mind, memory and personality are forever a part of such Adjusters. The mind-matrix, the potentials of identity present in the morontia soul are intrusted to the seraphic destiny guardians. And it is the reuniting of the morontia soul trust of the seraphim and the spirit-mind trust of the Adjuster that reassembles creature personality and constitutes resurrection of a sleeping survivor. From the Temple of New Life there extend seven radial wings, the resurrection halls of the mortal races. Each of these wings is devoted to one of the seven races. There are one-hundred thousand personal resurrection chambers in each of those seven wings terminating in the circular glass assembly halls, which serve as the awakening chambers for as many as 1 million individuals.
As noted before the residential areas are built in circles. In these circles live the major groups of Universe life: The Sons of God. The first circle is the place of the Magisterial Sons. The seven circles are concentric. The walls are constructed of crystals, and they are built in tiers, the outermost looking out over the innermost. The many gates, from fifty to one hundred thousand, are adorned with pearls. The second circle is for Trinity teacher Sons, the third is devoted to the Melchizedeks. They are the dominant influence on Jerusem, except for Adam and Eve. The forth circle is the home of the Vorondadeks. All other higher beings occupy this circle when they are on Jerusem. The fifth circle is that of the Lanonandeks, the sonship order of the system. The Life Carriers occupy the sixth circle. The seventh circle is the habitation of the ascending mortals. The great central region is now occupied by the Michael memorial. The memorial staff consists of over 1 million personalities.
The purely local and routine affairs of Jerusem are directed from the one hundred triangles. The missing sector caused by Lucifer in the panoramic depiction of Satania’s history. Satania cannot come back into the community of the constellation until Uversa gets its act together and adjudicates the case of Gabriel v. Lucifer. But the Archangel of Nebadon, who presents this paper, assures us that it will happen soon and Urantia will be restored to the Satania circuits and enjoy the privileges of interplanetary communication; “The wages of sin is death”-eternal obliteration.
All fifty-six of the encircling worlds of Jerusem are devoted to the transitional culture of the ascending mortals, but the seven satellites of world number one are specifically known as the mansion worlds. It is exclusively devoted to ascendent activities being the headquarters of the finaliter corps assigned to Satania. When you are on mansion world number one, you won’t yet be able to see finaliters. And there is a requiement. “No ascending mortal can escape the experience of rearing children==their own or others–either on the material worlds or subsequently on the finaliter world or on Jerusem.
PHYSICAL ASPECTS OF JERUSEM. Jerusem is divided into one thousand latitudinal sectors and ten thousand longitudinal zones. The sphere has seven major capitals and seventy minor administrative centers. The standard mile of Jerusem is equivalent to seven Urantia miles. The Jerusem day equals about three days of Urantia time. The system year consists of one hundred Jerusem days. The energy of Jerusem circulates about the sphere in zone channels, which are directly fed from the energy charges of space (it sounds like they are using free energy or scalar energy, which on Urantia is locked up in black projects, although it’s rumored that an electric company is using free energy. People who have invented devices that tap into free energy have had their labs destroyed, were denied a patent, or even been murdered). But it’s a renewable energy, cheap to produce and would save us from the energy crisis. There are no days and nights and no seasons of hot and cold. Rarefied energies are projected upward through the atmosphere, undergoing certain changes, until they reach the electric air ceiling of the sphere, and are reflected down as a gentle, sifting light similar to Urantia’s light at 10:00 in the morning. The satellites and subsatellites are heated, watered, lighted and energized by the same methods as Jerusem.
Jerusem is a foretaste of heaven. This is the place that people think of when they dream of heaven. Flowers and jewels are everywhere in all different colors. Gold and silver are prominent. I read a book by a young woman who nagged Michael to let her go to Jerusem and its satellites. He finally took her, but she was disappointed. He must have taken her to a place where boring things happen because she complained that the experience was boring. There are in fact grocery stores on the satellites. Well, Jesus was in morontia form after his resurrection and he ate, so the need must be there.
THE JERUSEM BROADCASTS. The superuniverse and Paradise-Havona broadcasts are received on Jerusem in liaison with Salvington and with a technique involving the polar crystal, the sea of glass. In addition for provision for reception of extra-Nebadon communications, there are three distinct groups of receiving stations. Mortals never fail to be engrossed by these never-ending broadcasts. The Jerusem broadcasting receiving station is a huge amphitheater seating 5 billion mortals, morontias, and some spirits. Adding the reflectivity phenomenon to the Paradise broadcast, the Uversa rulers can make the message visual.
RESIDENTIAL AND ADMINISTRATIVE AREAS. Considerable portions of Jerusem are assigned as residential areas, while other portions are administrative areas. The nonnative residential dwellings are placed in circles. The executive-administrative areas are positioned in squares. The homes of the lower native life are placed in rectangles. And triangles identify the local or Jerusem administration. The Material Sons of God, Adam and Eve, live on vast and beautiful estates. They are permanent residents of Jerusem.
As noted before, Urantia is placed within the System of Satania. Since the Rebellion the System Sovereign, the Contellation Fathers are keeping certain matters from Lanaforge, the successor to Lucifer. And Lanaforge has a group around him that aids him in governing Jerusem; they are: the first assistant Sovereign, Mansurotia; the second assistant Sovereign, Sadib, the custodian of the system; Holdant, the holder and controller of all interned spirits above the order of mortal existence; the system recorder, Vilton, secretary of the Lanonandek ministry of Satania; he also has the bestowal director, Fortant, temporary director of activities associated with Michael’s bestowal to Urantia; and the high counselor, Hanavard, acting chairman of the executive council of Satania.
There are a number of historical people who are gaining attention lately, but I will only mention a few. Enoch’s books are being read for their insights on the Anunnaki. He, like Elijah, was taken up by God. Moses was an emancipator of a submerged violet race. This was the race that made humans smarted and more civilized. Machiventa Melchizedek did amazing things. He went to Urantia and took the body of a human (a very difficult job) , established himself near Jerusalem and opened a school for missionaries. He is also Acting Planet Prince for Michael, who has never actually placed himself in the job. But MM has headquarters on Jerusem and authority to act on Michael’s behalf. Urantia, though, is still supervised by successive resident governors general, members of the four and twenty counselors.
The Melchizedek are the directors of that large corps of instructors–partially spiritualized will creatures and others–who function so effectively on Jerusem and the seven mansion (morontia) worlds. These are the detention planets where those mortals who fail to achieve fusion with their indwelling Adjusters during the life in the flesh are rehabilitated in transient form to receive further help and to enjoy extended opportunity for continuing their strivings for spiritual attainment, those very efforts which were prematurely interrupted by death. Or if, for any other reason of heredity handicap, unfavorable environment, or conspiracy of circumstances, this soul attainment was not completed, no matter what the reason, all who are true of purpose and worthy in spirit, find themselves, as themselves, present on the continuing planets, where they must learn to master the essentials of the eternal career to possess themselves of traits which they could not, or did not acquire during the lifetime in the flesh…..I was in contact with my Adjuster or thought I was, but I felt delusional, so I stopped. If what this paragraph says is true, we all should be contacting our Adjusters before its too late.
Satania’s administrative center consists of seven major satellites, forty-nine subsatellites and Jerusem the system capital. They are all artificial, but they are all beautiful and cared for by beings called spornagia. The seven mansion worlds are the seven subsatellites of transition world number one. After you die, you come to the resurrection halls of these subsatellites and are put back together. Your Adjuster and your angel has been holding your personality and other non-tangibles and this is where you will receive them and become yourself again. The seven major satellites orbiting Jerusem are known as the transitional cultural spheres. The numbers and names of these spheres are: Number 1 The Finaliter World; finaliters are mortals who have reached Paradise and worshiped the Father and have been inducted into the Finaliter Corps. Everyone who has this status descends to do service work. I have the impression that all personalities do service work. When ascending you learn new things and must teach these new things to the new person coming up behind you. The nice thing about that is you learn the material better.
Number 2. The Morontia World. This planet is the headquarters of the supervisors of morontia life and is surrounded by the seven spheres whereon the morontia chiefs train their associates and helpers, both morontia beings and ascending mortals. Number 3. The Angelic World. This is the headquarters of all the seraphic hosts engaged in system activities and is surround by the seven worlds of angelic training and instruction. Number 4. The Superangel World. This sphere is the Satania home of the Brilliant Evening Stars and a vast concourse of co-ordinate beings (these are unrevealed.) Number 5. The World of the Sons. This planet is the headquarters of the divine Sons of all orders. The surrounding seven worlds are devoted to certain individual groupings of these divine Sons.
Number 6. The World of the Spirits. This planet serves as the system rendezvous of the high personalities of the Infinite Spirit. The seven surrounding subsatellites are assigned to differing groups of these orders. But there is no satellite for the Mother Spirit; she fills the whole universe. She is also called the Divine Minister. Number 7. The World of the Father. This Major sphere and its subsatellite is special. The system is silent. There is a temple of light on one of the spheres, but nobody goes there. This where Lucifer and his followers are incarcerated. It’s a prison planet. I’ve stopped waiting for Lucifer’s case to be adjudicated. I wanted Earth to be reinstated to full participation in the various channels of information; after all, its not the fault of the people of Earth that Lucifer rebelled; why are they punishing us?
Because of the Lucifer Rebellion, the government of the constellation was expanded to include twelve Sons of the Vorondadek order. The twelve are as follows: 1. the Constellation Father. The Most High ruler of Norlatiadek is number 617,318 of the Vorondadek series of Nebadon. 2. The senior Most High associate. 3. The junior Most High associate. 4. The Most High advisor, the personal representative of Michael since his attainment of the status of Master Son. 5. The Most High executive, the personal representative of Gabriel stationed on Edentia ever since the Lucifer rebellion. 6. The Most High chief of planetary observers, the director of the Vorondadek observers stationed on the isolated worlds of Satania. 7. The Most High referee, the Vorondadek Son intrusted with the duty of adjusting all difficulties consequential to the rebellion within the constellation. 8. The Most High emergency administrator, charged with the task of adapting emergency enactments to the rebellion-isolated worlds of Satania. 9. The Most High mediator, assigned to harmonize the special bestowal adjustments on Urantia with the routine administration of the constellation. (Apparently, the archangels got out of control.) 10. The Most High judge advocate, the head of the emergency tribunal, devoted to the adjustment of the special problems of Norlatiadek growing out of the confusion caused by the Lucifer rebellion. 11. The Most High liaison, commissioned as a special counselor to the Faithful of Days. 12. The Most High director of the emergency council, which included all personalities assigned to Edentia due to the Lucifer emergency.
Gardens occupy half of Edentia and they are described as very beautiful. In the center of the garden is a worship shrine in which the Most Highs lead all Edentia in the worship-contemplation of God the Supreme. As mentioned before the Supreme Being is a God which grows in experience, whereas the Trinity Gods are existential, they do not experience, except through their creatures. The UB says there are 3 forms of life we would recognize as vegetable and 3 we would recognize as animal, but there are 4 forms of life that would render us clueless. We would have no idea what they are.
The Univitatia are the permanent citizens of Edentia and all seven hundred and seventy artificial planets surrounding the constellation headquarters. These are children of the Creator Son and the Creative Spirit, and they are on a level between the material and spiritual, but not morontia. Univitatia are created to function in seventy diverse orders of personality. Each of these orders exibits 10 major variations of intellectual activity. The seven hundred minor spheres are technical planets of practical education in the working of the entire local universe. On these planets they teach the following: 1. Work effectively with 10 fellows, with 100, and then with 1000. 2. Co-operate heartily with 10 univitatia, who are not your average American, while they are co-ordinating with 10 other families, which are in turn confederated into a corps of 1,000 univitatia. 3. Achieve simultaneous adjustment to both fellow morontians and these host univitatia. Acquire the ability voluntarily. 4. While thus socially functioning with beings like and unlike yourself, achieve intellectual harmony with, and make vocational adjustments to, both groups of associates. 5. Further perfect the ability to live in intimate contact with similar and slightly dissimilar beings with ever-lessening irritability. 6. Grasp the eternal goal-meanings concealed within these seemingly insignificant time-space activities.
The Urantia Book talks about survival rather than salvation. Jesus did not save us from our sins, he showed us how to survive, by loving God and neighbor. Although, it turns out that surviving is, according to the UB, simpler than that. It’s simply wanting to survive, craving God, doing God’s will. The UB frequently gives the reader a passage on how to survive. The following is one such: “Mind universally dominates matter, even as it is in turn responsive to the ultimate overcontrol of spirit. And with (humans) only that mind which freely submits itself to the spirit direction can hope to survive the mortal time-space existence as an immortal child of the eternal spirit world of the Supreme, the Ultimate and the Absolute: the Infinite.” I’ll note these passages when they appear. There were people back then named Adam and Eve. They were sent from Jerusem to uplift the tribes. The tribes built them a beautiful place called Eden as a home. Adam taught the tribes agriculture and Eve taught them the domestic arts. The both taught reading and those literacy skills. But they really came to Urantia to uplift the tribes by mating their progeny with the sons and daughters of the tribes. But eventually the tribes turned on them and the Material Sons defaulted and quit their jobs. They had to accept morality and ascend like any mortal. To confuse things further Enki of the Anunnaki created a new human male and female in collaboration with his half-sister Ninharsag. He put them in Enlil’s park called Eden, but Enlil kicked them out.
Urantia is referred to as 606 of Satania in Norlatiadek of Nebadon. one of 100 constellations in Nebadon. Their rulers link the local systems of inhabited worlds by reflectivity with the superadministration of the Ancients of Days on Uversa. I’ll get to reflectivity later. The government of the constellation is situated in a cluster of 771 architectural spheres, the centermost and largest of which is Edentia, the seat of the administration of the Constellation Fathers, the Most Highs of Norlatiadek. In Norlatiadek the seventy major spheres, together with the 700 minor satellites, are inhabited by the univitatia, the permanent citizens of the constellation.
The water of Edentia is no different from the water of evolutionary planets. The water is both surface and subterranean, and it is in constant circulation. Edentia and its associated worlds have a true atmosphere, a 3 gas mixture, which embodies the two elements of Urantian atmosphere plus that morantia gas suitable for the respiration of morantia creatures. The sea of glass, the receiving area of Edentia, is near the administrative center and in encircled by the headquarters amphitheater. Surrounding this area are the governing centers of the seventy divisions of constellation affairs. One half of Edentia is divided into seventy triangular sections, whose boundaries converge at the headquarters buildings of their respective sectors. The remainder of this sphere is one vast natural park, the garden of God. The Edentia sea of glass is one enormous circular crystal about 100 miles in circumference and about 30 miles in depth. This magnificent crystal serves as the receiving field for all transport seraphim and other beings arriving from points outside the sphere; such a sea of glass greatly facilitates the landing of transport seraphim. A crystal field is also utilized for reflectivity. Almost all architectural spheres have a glass lake and they are used, as I understand it, for communication. It does what it says: reflect. It’s a technique for circulating news. People on a planet huddle around a glass lake and wait for news to appear on their glass. I could be sadly mistaken and there are other ways of communicating.
The constellations are the autonomous units of a local universe, each constellation being administered by its own legislative enactments. They thus function as the law making units, while the local systems serve as the executive or enforcement units. The Salvington government is the supreme judicial and co-ordinating authority. The rulers of the constellations are of the Vorondadek order of local universe sonship (They are the offspring of the Creator Son and the Mother Spirit. None of these Sons have ever rebelled; Michael suffered two other rebellions in addition to Lucifer. These Sons are known as the “Most Highs” since they embody the highest administrative wisdom coupled with the most farseeing are intelligent loyalty of all the orders of the local universe Sons of God. At least three Vorondadek Sons are commissioned by Gabriel as the Most Highs of each of the Nebadon constellations. The presiding member of this trio is known as the Constellation Father and his two associates are the senior Most High and junior Most High
The UB adds a note about Urantia: At the time of the Lucifer Rebellion, the Most Highs seized authority in certain sectors on Urantia. They have continued to exercise this power, and the Ancients of Days long since confirmed this assumption of control over a wayward planet. They will probably maintain this control as long as Lucifer lives. But there is still another way in which Urantia became, to its misfortune, linked with the Most Highs. When Michael was on Urantia doing his bestowal mission, the successor to Lucifer was not in full authority of the local system, so all Urantia affairs which concerned the Michael bestowal were immediately supervised by the Most Highs of Norlatiadek. This could mean they sabotaged his mission. I don’t know. Anythings possible.
