The Urantia Book

There are three spirit circuits of the local universe-Nebadon; they are 1. The bestowal spirit of the Creator Son, the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth. 2. The spirit circuit of the Divine Minister, the Holy Spirit. 3. The intelligence-ministry circuit, including the more or less unified activities, but diverse functioning of the seven adjutant mind-spirits. The Creator Son may come and go, but the Spirit of Truth is functionally centered in the person of the Divine Minister and stays with her; she fills the universe but she does not go beyond the universe and physically does not go beyond Salvington, the headquarters world of the universe. She is the universe focus of the Spirit of Truth as well as being having her own personal influence as the Holy Spirit.

The seven adjutant mind-spirits are the creation of the Divine Minister of a local universe. The seven adjutants have been given the following names: the spirit of wisdom, the spirit of worship, the spirit of counsel, the spirit of knowledge, the spirit of courage, the spirit of understanding and the spirit of intuition. On inhabited worlds the Spirit begins the work of evolutionary progression, starting with the lifeless material of the realm, first endowing vegetable life, then the animal organisms, then the first orders of human existence; and each succeeding impartation contributes to the further unfolding of the evolutionary potential of planetary life from the initial and primitive stages to the appearance of will creatures. This work of the Spirit is largely performed through the seven adjutants, the spirits of promise, the unifying and co-ordinating spirit-mind of the evolving planet. The animal mind of humans eventually develops reception for the adjutants of the spirits of wisdom and worship; when this takes place the Spirit puts that or those minds into her spiritual circuits.

When a mind is in contact with the Holy Spirit, it also chooses the Universal Father, whether knowingly or not. The Spirit of Truth works as one with the Holy Spirit. This dual spirit liaison hovers over the worlds, seeking to teach truth and to spiritually enlighten the minds of humans, to inspire the souls of the creatures of the ascending races. The Spirit of Truth is limited by the reception it gets from humans. Nevertheless the ministry of the Holy Spirit becomes increasingly effective in the sanctification and spiritualization of the inner life of those mortals who more fully obey the divine leadings. The presence of the Holy Spirit of the Universe Daughter of the Infinite Spirit, of the Spirit of Truth of the Universe Son of the Eternal Son and the Adjuster Spirit of the Paradise Father, in or with an evolutionary mortal, denotes symmestry of spiritual endowment and ministry and qualities such a mortal consciously to realize the faith-fact of sonship with God.

As mortals progress in mind control and spirit perception, these multiple spirit ministries become more and more co-ordinate in function; they become increasingly blended with the overministry of the Paradise Trinity. Although Divinity may be plural in manifestation, in human experience Deity is always singular, always one. Neither is spiritual ministry plural in human experience. Regardless of plurality of origin, all spirit influences are one in function. Indeed, they are ONE (The Lord is God; The Lord is One).
