Urantia Book 80. The life of Jesus of Nazareth, Joshua ben Joseph, Yeshua, Christ Michael, Sovereign God of Nebadon. The evangelists and the women’s corps were having success in Perea, and Jesus pointed out to the 12 that the gospel of the kingdom could spread without miracles and wonders. This successful tour, having little help from the 12, reflected Jesus’ teachings. But his followers did not long follow his instructions, for soon after Jesus’ death and resurrection they departed from his teachings and began to build the early church around the miraculous concepts and the glorified memories of his divine-human personality. The New Testament is about Jesus, not what Jesus taught. The Catholic Church worships Jesus and the Father is an after-thought, but Jesus wanted us to worship the Father. Some protestant churches don’t even worship Jesus. My daughter’s church is Presbyterian and I have the impression that there are not many Bible-oriented activities there. My granddaughter goes to youth-group and I was told there was no religion going on there. The two pastors are a lesbian couple who run a loose ship, light years away from the Catholic church. The evolution of the church–it’s really interesting. Anyway, back to the story…As Jesus and the 12 visited with the evangelists at Gerasa, one of the Pharisees who believed in him asked this question: “Lord, will there be few or many really saved?” And Jesus answered: “You have been taught that only the children of Abraham will be saved, that only the gentiles of adoption can hope to be saved, and only a few of those who seek the kingdom of heaven will find entrance there. You also have another saying among you, that the door to heaven is narrow, so that, of those who seek salvation, few can find entrance through this door. You also have a saying that the way which leads to destruction is broad, that the entrance is wide, and there are many who choose to go this way. But I declare that salvation is first a matter of your personal choosing. Even if the door to life is narrow, I am that door, and those who sincerely want to enter, will enter. And the Son will never refuse entrance to any child of the universe who, by faith, seeks to find the Father through the Son. But beware of postponing your entrance into the kingdom while you party with your friends, for when you ask for entrance when you have used up your time here into my Father’s kingdom, I will say that I do not know you. And then shall the Judge of all the earth say to you, ‘Depart from us, all you who have taken delight in the works of iniquity.’************************ “But fear not; everyone who sincerely desires to find eternal life by entrance into the kingdom of God shall certainly find such everlasting salvation. (In the UB salvation is not the word used for the concept, survival is the word. There is some confusion about whether we are judged or whether we have the choice of whether to survive or not. In the UB it says that we decide whether we want to survive and ascend toward God by various training and education courses, but I’ve also read that there is a quick but merciful judgment (but this is downplayed)).*************************** Slowly the apostles and many of the disciples were learning the meaning of Jesus’ early declaration: “Unless you are born again, born of the spirit, you cannot enter the kingdom of God.” Nevertheless, to all who are honest of heart and sincere in faith, it remains eternally true: “Behold, I stand at the doors of men’s hearts and knock, and if any man will open to me, I will come in and sup with him and will feed him with the bread of life; we shall be one in spirit and purpose in the service and search for the Paradise Father.”********************************* The apostles did not understand the necessity for using spiritual force for the purpose of breaking through all material resistance and for surmounting every earthly obstacle which might chance to stand in the way of grasping the all-important spiritual values of the new life in the spirit as the liberated children of God.

Targeted Individuals. A TI, according to John Hall, the author of Guinea Pigs: Technologies of Control, is an individual who has been the target of all sorts and phases of harassment, and it all started with the FBI’s COINTELPRO. This means Counter Intelligence Program and I should have made that clear sooner. There is an apt prediction in Revelation 9:5–“They were allowed to torment them for five months, but not kill them, and their torment was like the torment of a scorpion when it stings someone.” The government is still apparently covertly experimenting on the public with weapons that use the electromagnetic spectrum. Ex-FBI agents are also harassing TIs with various modes of technology. There is a private investigative company in Texas who does this for a living. In all the nations of the civilized world the emphasis has gone from governing the population to controlling the population. The UN helps through its myriad of programs. That takes care of the third world. So the group who feels the slow creep of mental totalitarianism refer to themselves as target individuals or “T.I.s.” The author has interviewed thousands of people complaining about voices, burns, break-ins, all the symptoms that will be described. There is an organization, Freedom from Covert Surveillance and Harassment, which advocates and gives support to the victims. Hall says that “Many other support groups have developed to handle the exponentially growing number of complaints that are being voiced. Hall has been able from his research to come up with a template or set of progressive phases: selection, surveillance, stalking, defamation, attack and monitoring. These phases are taken from research, interviews and monitoring of the perpetrators in San Antonio, Texas. The weapons used are not available to the average person, ultimately they come from the government. Women are the most common victims. Most of these women have reported drug facilitated rape and sexual assault. In the past rape was used by MKULTRA as trauma-based training. A group of gay men in Palm Springs, CA, is being targeted sexually. They hear a female voice harass them in their minds through the microwave auditory effect, and they are being victimized through drug assisted sexual assault. The author says this is hate or a sex crime.*********** Surveillance of the chosen target closely follows selection. The target is unaware this is happening. The target is extensively surveilled through multiple means including background checks, credit checks, mail tampering, email hacking and direct observation, both physically and electronically. (Someone looked into the guts of my computer and found 24 hackers in there. He cleaned it out, but I finally had to get a new hard drive, which is why this post is late.) This allows the perp to know the target’s daily activities, where they live, work, bank and how they spend their leisure time. They also find out who the target spends time with and grades them in order of importance. This serves to find out who they will confide in when they are being targeted. Any participation in taboo behavior like drug use, excessive alcohol intake, domestic violence, infidelity or pornography is especially noted and followed up to control, mislead, defame and isolate the target. The perp will often mislead neighbors into thinking that their surveillance is a legitimate operation. People just don’t question a “law enforcement officer” when they should. Stalking is a natural extension of surveillance, but that’s for next blog.

Urantia Book 79. On Sabbath, January 28, Jesus preached on “Trust and Spiritual Preparedness” to a crowd of almost 3,000. Jesus said: “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees which is hypocrisy, born of prejudice and nurtured in traditional bondage, although some of these Pharisees here are my disciples. That which is now hid from you will be made known when the Son of Man has completed his mission on earth and in the flesh. I admonish you to fear none, in heaven or on earth, but to rejoice in the knowledge of Him who has the power to deliver you from all unrighteousness and to present you blameless before the judgement seat of a universe. Not one sparrow exists without the knowledge of the Father, the source of all life. To the seraphic guardians the very hairs of your head are numbered. And if all this is true, why should you live in fear of the many trifles which come up in your daily lives? I say to you: Fear not: you are of much more value than many sparrows. Say what you want about the Son of Man, and it shall be forgiven you; but he who presumes to blaspheme against God shall hardly find forgiveness. When men knowingly ascribe the doings of God to the forces of evil, such deliberate rebels will hardly seek forgiveness for their sins. I came into this world to reveal the Father to you and to lead you to the Father. The first I have done, but the second I cannot do without your consent; the Father never forces any person to enter the kingdom. The invitation ever has been and always will be: Whosoever will, let them come and freely partake of the water of life.” When he finished speaking, many went to the Jordan to be baptized (165.3.1-9).********************* As believers were talking to Jesus, a young man said to him: “Master, my father died and left his property to my brother and me, but my brother is withholding my half. Could you please bid my brother divide this inheritance with me?” Jesus was mildly indignant that this material-minded youth should ask him a question about business, but he decided to use it as a teaching moment. So he said: “Man, what gave you the idea that I am interested in material business affairs?” Then, turning to those around him, he continued: “Take heed and keep yourselves free from covetousness. Happiness comes not from the power of wealth, and joy springs not from riches. Wealth, in itself, is not a curse, but the love of riches many times leads to such devotion to the things of this world that the soul becomes blinded to the beautiful attractions of the spiritual realities of the kingdom of God on earth and to the joys of eternal life in heaven.”**************** Jesus then told them a story about a farmer who had so many good crops that he had to build bigger barns. He was rich and he thought he was set for life. He started to party. But he did not provide for his soul; he had failed to lay up treasures in heaven and one night his soul was required of him. Robbers killed him and burned his barns. He had treasures on earth, but he was not rich toward God. Jesus knew the young man’s problem was covetousness, but, even so, he never gave advice of a worldly nature to his apostles, disciples, or any of his followers. ******************************* Then another man spoke up: “Master, I know that your apostles have sold all their earthly possessions to follow you, and that they have all things in common as do the Essenes, but would you have all of us who are your disciples to likewise? Is it a sin to possess honest wealth?” And Jesus replied to this question: “My friend, it is not a sin to have honorable wealth; but it is a sin if you convert material wealth into treasures which may absorb your interests and divert your affections from devotion to the spiritual pursuits of the kingdom. There is no sin in having honest possessions on earth provided your treasure is in heaven, for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. There is a great difference between wealth which leads to covetousness and selfishness and that which is held and dispensed in the spirit of stewardship by those who have an abundance of this world’s goods and who so bountifully support those who devote all their energies to the work of the kingdom. At the judgment at least 3 questions must be answered by all who acquire great wealth: 1. How much did you accumulate? 2. How did you get this wealth? 3. How did you use your wealth? Fail not to recognize the danger of wealth’s becoming, not your servant, but your master.”

COINTELPRO and criminals. COINTELPRO remained secret until 1971 when its offices were broken into and documents related to its operations were leaked to the press. An investigation was launched by the Senate and became the Church Committee, after Senator Frank Church. Their final report found the FBI guilty of “vigilante operations aimed squarely at preventing the exercise of First Amendment rights of speech and association. Unsavory and victims tactics have been employed, including anonymous attempts to break-up marriages, disrupt meetings, estrange persons from their professions and provoke target groups into rivalries that might result in deaths.” These tactics are identical to the ones used by organized stalking groups today. The author says that contemporary stalking is probably a combination of COINTELPRO and criminals, but the majority of victims are citizens with no ties to radical groups. There is a private investigative agency in San Antonio, Texas, that “hires out” this type of harassment. Despite multiple complaints to the Department of Public Safety, nothing has been done. Retired FBI agents who were professionally connected with COINTELPRO would be spread over the US doing this under the cover of agencies. Organized stalking from state to state have striking similarities: break-ins, appliance tampering, remote neural monitoring. Victims who re-locate, hoping to end their suffering, find they have 2 or 3 months of peace before the harassment starts again. Something even worse, if that’s possible, is being a target of a direct energy weapon. There are lasers, microwaves, particle beams and scalar weapons. People complain of burning of the skin, involuntary muscle movements, heart rate irregularities and headaches, and these complains are not even rare. They are also in conjunction with the previously discussed modes of harassment. Psychiatrists and law enforcement authorities know little or nothing about these threats to sanity and well-being, and believe the person complaining about them is delusional. Direct energy weapons are in the experimentation phase, or have been, and the citizens of this country have been the non-consensual guinea pigs. The author goes into great deal about what makes a good target and the effectiveness of the weapon under various conditions. I will not go into all that;ballistics doesn’t interest me. The DoD protects their electronic equipment by encasing them in metal boxes. For example, the control centers for the unmanned predator drones are encased in metallic cargo containers for protection from this type of directed energy attack.There is one interesting type of directed energy weapon and that is a scalar weapon, and many physicists don’t even think it exists. They are hard to define because they do not act like other electro-magnetic waves. Some describe them as static points of light and they travel at 1.5 times the speed of light. There is no energy loss when the scalar wave gets to its target, as is the case with other waves. Scalar waves provide for the wireless transfer of electrical energy. Physicists say this could only happen in the vacuum of space, but Konstantin Meyl showed the effects of the scalar wave in the atmosphere. Many of the people complaining of directed energy exposure have tried to shield themselves with anechoic chambers, but it didn’t work (the scalar wave is not attenuated by an anechoic chamber).

Urantia Book 78. The life of Jesus of Nazareth, Joshua ben Joseph, Yeshua, Christ Michael, Sovereign God of Nebadon. On Tuesday, January 3, AD 30, Abner, the former chief apostle of John the Baptist and chief of the 70 evangelists, called his associates together and gave them final instructions for their tour through Perea. This would be a three month tour and the last tour for the Master. The women’s corps, now numbering 62, took over most of the work of tending to the sick. No other part of Palestine was so thoroughly worked by the apostles and in no other region did the better class of citizens so generally accept the Master’s teaching. By the middle of January more than 1200 persons were gathered together at Pella, and Jesus taught this multitude at least once each day at 9am when he was in residence. The evenings Jesus reserved for the apostles and other advanced disciples for questions and answers. By the middle of March, the time when Jesus began his journey toward Jerusalem, over 4000 persons composed the large audience which heard either Jesus or Peter preach each morning. The Master chose to terminate his work on earth when the interest in his message had reached a high point, the highest point attained under this second or non-miraculous phase of the progress of the kingdom. Enemies of Jesus had followed him to Pella when he left Jerusalem after the feast of dedication, and one evening he preached on “The Good Shepherd” to a crowd that included these enemies. He said: “On this night I have much to tell you, and since some of you are my disciples and some are my bitter enemies, I will present my teaching in a parable, so that you may each take for yourself that which finds a reception in your heart. The true shepherd gathers his flock into the fold at night in times of danger. And when the morning has come, he enters into the fold by the door, and when he calls, his sheep know his voice. Any shepherd who enters the sheepfold by any other means than the door is a thief and a robber. The true shepherd enters the fold after the porter has opened the door for him, and his sheep, knowing his voice, come out at his word; and when they that are his are thus brought forth, the true shepherd goes before them; he leads the way and the sheep follow him. The sheep follow him because they know his voice; they will not follow a stranger. The multitude gathered here is like sheep without a shepherd, but when we speak to them, they know the shepherd’s voice, and they follow after us; at least those who hunger for truth and thirst for righteousness do. Some of you are not of my fold; you do not know my voice, and you do not follow me. And because you are false shepherds, the sheep know not your voice, and will not follow you.” Jesus went on to discuss the parable: “You who would be undershepherds of my Father’s flocks must not only be worthy leaders, but you must feed the flock good food; you are not good shepherds unless you lead your flocks into green pastures and beside still waters. Now, lest some of you too easily understand this parable, I am both the door to the Father’s sheepfold and at the same time the true shepherd of my Father’s flocks. Every shepherd who seeks to enter the fold without me will fail, and the sheep will not hear his voice. I, with those who minister with me, am the door. Every soul who enters upon the eternal way by the means I have created and ordained shall be saved and will be able to go on to the attainment of the eternal pastures of Paradise.************* “But I am also the true shepherd who is willing to lay down his life for his sheep. I am the true shepherd; I know my own and my own know me. I will not flee in the face of danger. I will finish this service of the completion of my Father’s will, and I will not forsake the flock the Father has entrusted to my keeping. But, mind you, if I lay down my life, I will take it up again. No man nor any other creature can take away my life. I have the right and the power to lay down my life, and I have the same right and power to take it up again. You cannot understand this, but I received such authority from my Father before the creation of the world.” When they heard these words, his apostles were confused, his disciples were amazed and the Pharisees decided he was either crazy or possessed. The next morning about half of the posse from Jerusalem believed in Jesus.

Stalking. In January 2008 the US Department of Justice released a survey, “Stalking Victimization in the United States.” Stalking was up exponentially from the previous study done in 1996. 3.4 million Americans were victims of stalking, while another 2.4 million were victims of harassment. 6.8% of the 5.8 million total suffered electronic monitoring such as spyware, bugging or video surveillance. 1 in 10 did not know who was targeting them. The others knew their stalkers. Hall says: “The study defines stalking as a course of conduct directed at a specific person that would cause a reasonable person to feel fear.” About 130,000 victims reported that they were fired or asked to leaved their jobs because of the stalking.****************** A study published by the American Journal of Preventive Medicine in 2006 found that 7 million women and 2 million men have been stalked. It also found that people who were never married, separated, widowed, or divorced experienced significantly higher rates of stalking than people who lived with a partner. The study found no gender differences in the mental health effects of stalking. Both male and female victims experience equal rates of impaired health, depression and injury, and were more likely to engage in substance abuse than their non-stalked peers. A common theme among the studies was the inability of the victims to get appropriate help from law enforcement officials.***** Three types of stalking are organized stalking, gang stalking and cause stalking. Organized stalking is the harassment of a person by unknown individuals for the sole purpose of inducing psychological trauma. The other two are the same, but they are misnomers: the gangs aren’t street hoods and the cause is to torment. The author says that “the problem has become so pervasive that a multitude of websites have arisen to educate and console the growing number of victims.” Two websites are www.raven1.net and Gangstalkingworld.com. Some of the “antics” of organized stalking are: 1. following the targeted individual 24/7. 2. loitering around their homes or places of business. 3. breaking into the target’s home, usually to vandalize it or take clothing. 4. harassing the victim with vulgar language or gestures in a public place. 5. character assassination of the victim by spreading rumors about them to neighbors and employers. 6. damage to victim’s vehicle or other property. 7. bombard the victim with loud noises around the home or work. This type of stalking is not new; the phenomenon gets its roots from an FBI operation called COINTELPRO. From 1956 to 1971 the FBI directed a number of covert operations known as COINTELPRO, an acronym for “counter intelligence program.” Their goal was to infiltrate and subvert certain social and political groups that were deemed a threat to national security. The directives governing COINTELPRO were issued by FBI director J. Edgar Hoover and were designed to “expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit and neutralize” the activities of targeted groups and their leaders. These groups included communist organizations, women’s rights groups, black nationalists, civil rights organizations, the NAACP, the American Indian Movement and the KKK. The methods used by the FBI are identical to those being used today by organized stalking groups. They include public character assassination, harassment through legal and financial institutions, conspicuous surveillance, illegal breaking and entering, psychological operations, vandalism and assault. Harassment is often through the manipulation of employers, parents, neighbors or landlords to assist in the victimization of the intended target.

Urantia Book 77. Poor Josiah was dragged before the Sanhedrin and had to tell what had happened to him. The Sanhedrin itself was violating the law by meeting on the Sabbath, and Jesus knew he would be accused for that, also. But they feared to call Jesus, so it was Josiah they called. But Josiah didn’t know who Jesus was-that he was the Deliverer, so he said: “This man came along, put clay on my eyes, told me to go wash in Siloam, and I do now see.” One of the older Pharisees now said: “This man cannot be from God because you can see that he does not observe the Sabbath.” Then one of the younger men who secretly believed in Jesus, said: “If this man is not sent by God, how can he do these things? We know that one who is a common sinner cannot perform such miracles. The presiding officer perceived the drift of the conversation, so he turned to Josiah and said: “What do you have to say about this man, this Jesus, whom you claim opened your eyes?” And Josiah answered: “I think he is a prophet.”****** The troubled leaders, not knowing what else to do, sent for Josiah’s parents to learn whether he had actually been born blind. It was well known in Jerusalem that anyone who believed in Jesus was barred from the Temple and all the synagogues in Judea and Israel–excommunicated from Israel. And they could only buy the necessities of life. When the very frightened parents of Josiah appeared before the Sanhedrin, they were afraid to speak freely. The spokesman asked them if their son was born blind. They replied in the affirmative, but they had no idea how it came about that he could see now. They further stonewalled by saying: “Ask him; he is of age; let him speak for himself.” The members of the Sanhedrin were beginning to feel strange about this procedure, especially as it was held on the Sabbath, but they spoke again to Josiah, this time criticizing him for not being grateful to God for the blessing of sight. And they told him to atone for his sin of Sabbath-breaking by acknowledging God as his healer. They asked him again how he received his sight and he impatiently told them: “I have told you exactly how it all happened, and it you did not believe my testimony, why would you hear it again?” The Sanhedrin broke up in confusion, and they violently yelled at Josiah all about knowing Moses and the law and where did this preacher come from?***************************** Josiah stood on a stool and yelled:”God does not perform such works for the ungodly. God would do such a thing only at the request of a true worshiper–for one who is holy and righteous. Not since the beginning of the world have you heard of the opening of the eyes of one who was born blind. I tell you, if this man were not from God, he could not do this.” And the Sanhedrin departed in anger and confusion, shouting: “You were altogether born in sin, and you now presume to teach us. Even if your eyes were opened on the Sabbath, it was done by the power of the prince of devils.” And they went at once to the synagogue to cast out Josiah.******************************* While all this was going on, Jesus was teaching in Solomon’s Porch, hoping he would be summoned by the Sanhedrin, so he could tell them the good news of the kingdom and the liberty and joy of divine sonship in the kingdom. But they were afraid of Jesus, and even more they feared to arrest him. Some of the other teachers asked him why he didn’t admit to being the Messiah. And why did he hold them in suspense? Jesus said: “I have told you about myself and my Father many times, but you will not believe me. The teacher of truth attracts only those who hunger for the truth and who thirst for righteousness. To all who follow my teaching I give eternal life; they will never perish, and no one shall snatch them out of my hand. As the Father dwells in me, so will I in everyone who believes this gospel.” Jesus and the 2 apostles visited Josiah, and Jesus asked him: “Josiah, do you believe in the Son of God?” Josiah answered:”Tell me who he is, that I may believe in him.” And Jesus said:”You have both seen and heard him, and it is he who now speaks to you.” And Josiah said: “Lord, I believe.” and falling down, he worshiped.
