Lucifer’s Manifesto (written about in The URANTIA Book) sounded very tantalizing to all those who lived in Edge City. It was detected by universe supervisors that Lucifer himself had shown tendencies of displeasure to the laws, statutes, and ordinances of the Universal Father for a very long time before he openly left his Divine Administrative position. His very cleverly written manifesto appealed to all those with grievances themselves, some real but many imaginary. The real could have been easily straightened out by Divine Counselors, if they would have asked for a counsel with them. The unreal or imaginary hurts that tens of thousands of celestials and mortal starseeds had against divine laws, these personalities did not really want a resolution. They wanted their own way. Usually in every rebellion that occurs on a world, rebellious ones wait for a Pied Piper, one stronger than them or higher up in authority than them to lead the way, to play the first notes of rebellion. They are not brash enough themselves to openly rebel until the Pied Piper does. They mostly just complain. In young universes like Nebadon they all must be weeded out, the chaff must be removed from the wheat, the good seed from the bad seed. This has been the way in every universe in time and space, so it is not just a phenomenon of Urantia. We have the concepts on this planet of “birds of a feather flock together,” “misery loves company,” “one bad apple spoils the whole bunch,” and so on. It is true too of rebellious minds. The most deceptive of them who go astray from the laws of Michael always claim to follow Michael but in “another way.” Or they claim to follow the Father and deny Michael. Or they deny Michael and claim to follow Jesus. Or they deny Jesus and follow a variety of other gods. Interestingly starseed souls, who are older souls, will actually become or try to become new souls and follow a religion that teaches there is no repersonalization of souls and that the ascension of Nebadon is universally the same for all of the 700,000 universes of time and space. That’s like saying the earth is the center of the grand universe or the sun revolves around the earth. What souls won’t do to justify their wrong actions. This phenomenon of the Rebellion did not just take place 200,000 years ago in Nebadon, for the Universal Father gave free will to all sentient beings in the trillions of inhabited worlds that exist. And for trillions of souls, there are trillions of reasons why mortals and celestials rebel from the absolutes of eternity. These absolutes are the foundations that hold all of the universes, and the worlds therein, from bumping into each other and destroying themselves. Without absolutes there is no civilization, there is only chaos, there is only anarchy, there is only non-reality. So when commandments are given by God to man, the absolutes are given by the Universal Father to free-will sentient beings, if they aren’t obeying, pain, suffering and death are the result of these wrong choices. The laws of God are truly written in the superconsciousness of all free-will sentient beings, though they may try to escape them. After 200,000 years of individuals trying to escape these absolutes, we have a world of madness and disease, suffering of every kind, the collapse of the environment, and the continued cruelty of man to man — today, in certain countries, the rape of 9-year-old girls, human trafficking, child pornography, and pedophiles getting away with their heinous immorality because they are doctors or professionals or judges—protected by others in positions of city, state, or federal power, even in America, because these iniquitous souls hold positions of power themselves and are so-called “pillars of the community.” The laws of God have been written from the beginning of time, the cause and effect of immorality is now being manifest in the earth, in every realm. These grievous sins have their effect in an ever-increasing upstepping of the adjudication of the Bright and Morning Star versus Lucifer that some call The Quickening or The Correcting Time or The Days of the Purification of the Hopi. What about those who commit “error,” also called in The URANTIA Book “evil”—lust of the flesh, the inability yourself to stop from having the next drink or drug? The New Testament has these words in Galations 5:19-21: “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like.” And also it is written that in these last days, prior to the coming of Christ Michael back to the earth, in II Tim 3:1-9 “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. For of this sort are they which creep into houses, and lead captive silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts, ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. Now as Jannes and Jambres withstood Moses, so do these also resist the truth: men of corrupt minds, reprobate concerning the faith. But they shall proceed no further: for their folly shall be manifest unto all men, as theirs also was.” Which side of the fence do you sit on?
