THE FALL OF LUCIFER  ---  (How it Affects Us)

       This great historical fall has caused problems throughout our System for over two
hundred thousand years with problems reaching down to the 21century and affecting our
entire planet. And while most of this is in reference to Lucifer, it is just as applicable to us
as mortals. Good and evil prevails primarily within the order of mortality and the lower order
of angels and material Sons and Daughters, though there are beings that are inherently
inerrant. While the human genome contains the capacity for anyone to choose to commit
either evil or righteousness, the salient fact is that one has the right to exercise choice,
choice to do evil or good based on moral decision making on the part of all intellectually
moral individuals. There exists in the universe entities of personality endowment who do
not have this choice; it is inherently impossible for them to make a mistake through error of
judgment. Lucifer and Satan along with the rest of us can make errors of judgment,
however when those errors are frequently to the detriment of others and willfully made they
become acts of what is determined to be of a sinful nature. This leads to iniquity, too much
of which causes the automatic soul condition of spiritual death—“we become as if we never
were” a far more final death than just ending our life here on earth. Soul extinction implies
our existence is as if it never was; we are no longer a living entity—no longer are in
existence; eternal death finalizes our destiny in the universe. Our normal death here allows
us to be judged for eternity. 

       In our presentation we are going to follow a chronology different from our usual
presentations by starting at the end of paper 54 which begins on page 613 and ends on
620, with a disclosure of the qualification of a onetime mortal (assigned to the receivership
of our planet) who is presenting this paper; and along with this disclosure his statement on
how we as mortals might well come to understand things that baffle us now; things that
appear unfathomable at present. He presents throughout the paper the reasoning behind
the concept of non-intervention in philosophical disputes until an allotted time to allow for
reevaluation or possible change in the attitude of the principals involved in disputes that
might jeopardize their universe survival. The consequences of outcomes at higher
universal levels can end in personality extinction. The Lucifer rebellion, for example, has
affected millions of angels and other ascending personalities in seriously negative ways.
Yet the adjudication of the Lucifer rebellion has been allowed to go on for the last two
thousand years—since Jesus’ expiration on earth. The rebellion had taken place for the
better part of two hundred thousand years where it was allowed to run its course without
the intervention of justice. However, Lucifer and his associate Satan are both on detention
spheres until the final adjudication of the outcome of their rebellion. This prolonged period
of adjudication is for a reason; a reason which will be discussed if we haven’t exceeded our
time restraints (page restraints).  And, if we have, you can find the reasons on pages 615
– 617.  
       Some of the highest truths in our universe are contained in the Urantia revelation; it
therefore behooves each and every one of us in our effort to grasp the necessary cosmic
wisdom to assure our final destiny, to get with the program by studying this cosmic
revelation as it is revealed by the highest sources of such material in our universe.  

All quoted material is directly from the Urantia book; non-quoted is from the URI. 
“Presented by a Mighty Messenger of experiential survival in the first system rebellion in
the universes of time now attached to the superuniverse government of Orvonton and
acting in this matter by request of Gabriel of Salvington.”
(Pg. 630) 
(His ending statement)
“As you ascend the survival experience, you will broaden your
universe concepts and extend your horizon of meanings and values, and thus will you be
able the better to understand why such beings as Lucifer and Satan are permitted to
continue in rebellion. You will also better comprehend how ultimate (if not immediate) good
can be derived from time-limited evil. After you attain Paradise, you will really be
enlightened and comforted when you listen to the superaphic philosophers discuss and
explain these profound problems of universe adjustment. But even then, I doubt that you
will be fully satisfied in your own minds. At least I was not even when I had thus attained the
acme of universe philosophy. I did not achieve a full comprehension of these complexities
after I had been assigned to administrative duties in the superuniverse, where by actual
experience I have acquired conceptual capacity adequate for the comprehension of such
many-sided problems in cosmic equity and spiritual philosophy. As you ascend
Paradiseward, you will increasingly learn that many problematic features of universe
administration can only be comprehended subsequent to the acquirement of increased
experiential capacity and to the achievement of enhanced spiritual insight. Cosmic wisdom
is essential to the understanding of cosmic situations.” 


       Regarding cosmic wisdom, have we allowed ourselves enough time to remove the
uncompromising miscreants throughout the mid-east from the planet? Is it time to send
them on to virgin fantasy-land for their rewards from Allah?  
       Well, one thing is certain, that if we nuke the fanatical murderers in the Levant in the
coming months by allowing them to run the full course of their havoc instead of nuking
them ten years ago when they were just getting started it would go over a lot better now
than it would a decade ago. By allowing them to reveal their cards by beheading hundreds
of innocent people of all races and nationalities in the last decade they have incurred the
wrath of the entire civilized world. People around the world today would welcome the
annihilation of evil ones terrorizing the mid-east today with their plans for world domination.
I have inserted this because it has been two thousand years since Caligastia and
Daligastia have yet to be adjudicated for the terrible misdeeds they foisted upon our
planet. As rulers of our planet for five hundred thousand years they aligned with the forces
of evil under the system rule of Lucifer for the last two hundred thousand years and are
still running about unabated. Lucifer, on the other hand, is on a detention world, and if
adjudicated today, this act of justice would only be about two and a half seconds in
comparison to the amount of time of his total existence.  

       One of the reasons for a time lapse for divine intervention is to allow us time to either
change our direction by establishing a modicum of healthy co-habitation devoid of the
animosities currently being expressed around the planet including our own culture; or
destroying the culture to the level of no return, or perhaps repairing the culture to where
divine beings who are more than willing to intercede could come aboard and aid in our
recovery. So far we have done little on our own to warrant any form of divine intervention –
we are progressively worsening our planet by allowing mediocrity to rule. Unwise people
invariably make unwise decisions. In the last decade we have done nothing meaningful to
change our culture to where the society can respond appropriately to world affairs;
however, the Urantia book indeed addresses all that is necessary for us to set the planet
straight. 
 
       As reported previously:
“Lucifer was a brilliant primary Lanonandek Son of Nebadon.
He had experienced service in many systems, had been a high counselor of his group, and
was distinguished for wisdom, sagacity, and efficiency. Lucifer was number 37 of his order,
and when commissioned by the Melchizedeks, he was designated as one of the one
hundred most able and brilliant personalities in more than seven hundred thousand of his
kind. From such a magnificent beginning, through evil and error, he embraced sin and now
is numbered as one of three System Sovereigns in Nebadon who have succumbed to the
urge of self and surrendered to the sophistry of spurious personal liberty—rejection of
universe allegiance and disregard of fraternal obligations, blindness to cosmic
relationships. 

       In the universe of Nebadon, the domain of Christ Michael, there are ten thousand
systems of inhabited worlds. In all the history of Lanonandek Sons, in all their work
throughout these thousands of systems and at the universe headquarters, only three
Sovereigns have ever been found in contempt of the government of the Creator Son”
(Page 601) 

       With the above paragraphs as background material, we will skip to the next chapter of
our discourse, to the problems of the rebellion and perhaps in some fashion relate these
problems to those manifesting throughout the world today, especially within our own
culture. The author who probably resides at the headquarters of the superuniverse
presents a discourse on true and false liberty, the theft of liberty, the time lag of justice, the
mercy time lag and the wisdom of delay. He begins as follows: 
“Evolutionary man finds it difficult fully to comprehend the significance and to grasp the meanings of evil,
error, sin, and iniquity. Man is slow to perceive that contrastive perfection and imperfection produce pot
ential evil; that conflicting truth and falsehood create confusing error; that the divine endowment of freew
ill choice eventuates in the divergent realms of sin and righteousness, that the persistent pursuit of divinity
leads to the kin
gdom of God as contrasted with its continuous rejection which leads to the domains of iniquity.” (Page 613) 
“The Gods neither create evil nor permit sin and rebellion. Potential evil is time-existent in
a universe embracing differential levels of perfection meanings and values. Sin is potential
in all realms where imperfect beings are endowed with the ability to choose between good
and evil. The very conflicting presence of truth and untruth, fact and falsehood, constitutes
the potentiality of error. The deliberate choice of evil constitutes sin; the willful rejection of
truth is error; the persistent pursuit of sin and error is iniquity.” 


       Many of our contemporaries as well as our predecessors fail to recognize that sin
leads to iniquity (the habitual and willful act of sin) (a serial rapist, killer, etc.) and that
these acts may end in personality termination, termination of the soul.  It is our opinion that
those who willfully and gleefully rape and pillage villages and towns such as is happening
today throughout Africa and the mid-east, have jeopardized their souls without really
knowing the consequences of iniquity. Now we are told that “the willful rejection of truth is
error; and persistent pursuit of error culminates in personality extinction.” We have all run
into people whose only recognition of truth apparently is that they are a living person, so
narcissistic that the world seems to revolve around them. In this discourse the author
attempts to define problems relating to good and evil and how eternity survival might be
predicated upon an understanding of our sense of true or false liberty. (URI) 

TRUE AND FALSE LIBERTY (Page 613-614) 
“Of all the perplexing problems growing out of the Lucifer rebellion, none has oc
casioned more difficulty than the failure on immature evolutionary mortals to distinguish between true and false liberty.  
True liberty is the quest of the ages and the reward of evolutionary progress. False liberty is the subtl
e deception of the error of time and the
evil of space. Enduring liberty is predicated on the reality of justice—intelligence, maturity, fraternity, and equity. 
Liberty is a self-destroying technique of cosmic existence when its motivation is unintelligen
t, unconditioned, and uncontrolled. True liberty is progressively related to reality and
is ever regardful of social equity, cosmic fairne
ss, universe fraternity, and divine obligations. 

       Liberty is suicidal when divorced from material justice, intellectual fairness, social for
bearance, moral duty, and spiritual values. Liberty is nonexistent apart from cosmic real
ity, and all personality reality is proportional to its divinity relationships. 
Unbridled self-will and unregulated self-expression equal unmitigated selfishness, the acme
on ungodliness. Liberty without the associated and ever increasing conquest of s
elf is a figment of egoistic mortal imagination. Self-motivated liberty is a conceptual i
llusion, a cruel deception. License masquerading in the garments of
liberty is the forerunner of abject bondage.  
       True liberty is the associate of genuine self-respect; false liberty is the consort of s
elf-admiration. True liberty is the fruit of self-control; false liberty, the assumption of se
lf-assertion. Self-control leads to altruistic service, self –admiration tends towards the exp
loitation of others for the selfish aggrandizement of such a mistaken individual as is willin
g to sacrifice righteous attainment for the sake of poss
essing unjust power over his fellow beings. 
       Even wisdom is divine and safe only when it
is cosmic in scope and spiritual in motivation.” 
“There is no error greater than that species of self-deception which leads intelligent beings
to crave the exercise of power over other beings for the purpose of depriving these
persons of their natural liberties. The golden rule of human fairness cries out against all
such fraud, unfairness, selfishness, and unrighteousness. Only true and genuine liberty is
compatible with the reign of love and the ministry of mercy.”  

       We don’t have the allotted space to complete the entire chapter, but so far we can
readily see that our Federal, State and local governmental agencies have intentionally
deprived us of many of our liberties. They have put us far in debt to future generations, the
Executive branch has circumvented the peoples Constitution depriving us of the liberties
set-forth therein. The IRS agency has deprived conservatives of their liberties, the
Department of Justice has deprived us of liberties, and both federal and state agencies
have opened the border, thus depriving us of our security, the Feds, have altered our
private health-care programs and have deliberately increased the premiums and for lessor
treatment, and let us not forget the Veterans Administration for their absolute neglect of
our war veterans who have to wait six months to a year to get an appointment, and the
liberties we lose by hospitals having to close down due to the overload of illegals using the
emergency rooms as their primary care physicians, we are over taxed so as to render the
poor free access to expensive cell phones, sanctuary cities for foreign criminals, given
allowances to non-citizens  and bypassing our citizenry (college tuition for example),
allowing Congress to work less and receive remuneration far beyond the average worker
to name just a small portion of liberties deprived from our citizenry.  
There is a personal price to be paid on the part of those directly involved in the intentional
usurpation of individual liberty which extends all the way to the White House. Every one of
us has to become acutely aware of the responsibilities we have and the consequences
incurred over our individual actions. Are we advancing our souls or are we irreparably
destroying the soul. If one doesn’t believe in a soul, just cover yourself by doing good
deeds, and when the time comes you will inevitably discover your soul. God does not have
much of a plan for soulless individuals. The plan is merely to terminate your existence
forever. There resides amongst us people who are somewhat soulless, living virtually
without redeeming qualities; they are to be loathed because they refuse to adapt to the
codes of civilized society. They are the ones guilty of inveterate acts of criminal behavior
displaying total disregard to their fellow man’s condition. Society should have learned by
now that locking a person in a cell for a lifetime is just a waste of the tax-payers money.
People that show no mercy to their fellow man and steadfastly refuse to alter their behavior
should, in my opinion, be sent back to God; if God wants them in his universe, fine; if he
doesn’t, fine. Taking their life here is the prerogative of the state, and is not a final
termination of one’s soul; the Ancients of Days make that determination; and that
determination is irrefutable and entirely in accordance with God’s plan. This “Order of
Days” determines whether one lives to pursue eternity or is unceremoniously terminated as
an entity, in part, based on the development of the soul. 

THE THEFT OF LIBERTY (Pg. 614) 
“With the Son and in the Spirit did God project eternal Havona, and ever since has there obtained the eternal pattern of co-ordinate participation in creation—
sharing. This pattern of sharing is the master design
for every one of the Sons and Daughters of God who go out into space to engage in the attempt to duplicate in time the central universe of eternal perfection.  
Every creature of every evolving universe who aspires to do the Father’s will is destined to become the partner of the time-space Creators in this magn
ificent adventure of experiential perfection attainment. Were this not true, the Father would ha
ve hardly endowed such creatures with creative free will, neither would he indwell them, actually go into partnership with them by means of his own spirit.” 
“Lucifer’s folly was the attempt to do the non-doable, to short-circuit time in an experiential universe. Lucifer’s crime was the attempted creative disenfranc
hisement of every personality in Satania, the unrecognized abridgement of the creature’s personal participation—free will participation—in the long evoluti
onary struggle to attain the status of light and life both individually and collectively. In so doing this onetime Sovereign of your system set the temp
oral purpose of his own will directly athwart to the eternal purpose of God’s will as it is revealed in the bestowal of free will upon all personal creatures. The
Lucifer rebellion thus threatened the maximum possible infringement of the freewill choice of the ascenders and servers of the system of Satania—a threa
t forevermore to deprive every one of these beings of the thrilling experience of contributing something personal and unique to the slowly erecting
monument to experiential wisdom which will sometime exist as the perfected system of Satania. Thus does the Lucifer manifesto, masquerading in the ha
biliments of liberty, stand forth in the clear light of reason a
s a monumental threat to consummate the theft of personal liberty and to do it on a scale that has been approached only twice in all the history of Nebadon. 
In short, what God had given men and angels Lucifer would have taken away
from them, that is, the divine privilege of participating in the creation of their own destinies and the destiny of this local system of inhabited worlds. 
No being in all the universe has
the rightful liberty to deprive any other being of true liberty, the right to love and be loved, the privilege of worshiping God and of serving his fellows.” 
THE TIME LAG OF JUSTICE (Page 615) 
“The moral will creatures of the evolutionary worlds are always bothered with the
unthinking question as to why the all-wise Creators permit evil and sin. They fail to
comprehend that both are inevitable if the creature is to be truly free. The free will of
evolving man or exquisite angel is not a mere philosophic concept, a symbolic ideal. Man’s
ability to choose good or evil is a universe reality. This liberty to choose for oneself is an
endowment of the Supreme Rulers, and they will not permit any being or group of beings to
deprive a single personality in the wide universe of this divinely bestowed liberty—not even
to satisfy such misguided and ignorant beings in the enjoyment of this misnamed personal
liberty.” 

       Thoughtless people frequently act on impulse, desiring immediately to gratify their
senses, or to obtain something they want by taking from others—a personal grab of a
woman’s purse, or a bank robbery, makes little difference towards soul growth; both are
acts to benefit an individual irrespective of the consequences of another person or
persons. Some people seem to be without internal brain monitors which are there to modify
one’ actions, if they see an open car window and the keys are in the ignition, the impulse is
to steal the car. If the keys aren’t there and there is a purse left on the seat, grab it. The
only consequences ever entertained by such people, if they think about the consequences
at all, is how much time does the offense bring as concerns incarceration. They have
never been taught about eternal consequences or soul development, because once these
actions become habitual -- a way of life, they can so destroy the soul as to turn sinful acts
into iniquitous acts (iniquity = personality termination). A repetition of careless sin may
eventually result in iniquitous behavior, which according to our revelation, may lead to
consequences of eternity deprivation.  But in this politically correct world the soul is only a
theoretical construct, and as such, a construct of religion which must not be taught in
school, abiding by the concept of the separation of church and state.  But impulsive acts of
advanced criminals are not always thought of far enough in advance to allow for any soul
searching prior to a felonious deed. However, somewhere along the line minor criminals as
well as the general population should receive some kind of exposure to the aspects of
spiritual life – apart from the churches. Places are few and far between where there is
instruction regarding the consequences of how the inherent capacity of the individual can
exercise the power over the choice of good and evil and how those choices eventually
relate to the development of the human soul. The boy scouts and girl scouts, the YMCA
and other youth organizations make more than a feeble attempt to instill direction to these
fertile and formative minds of their following, but perhaps we could go a step further and
finally adapt educational facilities to incorporate ethics as a part of the curriculum by
expatiating on the social consequences of evil behavior. 

“Although conscious and wholehearted identification with evil (sin) is the equivalent of
nonexistence (annihilation), there must always intervene between the time of such
personal identification with sin and the execution for the penalty—the automatic result of
such a willful embrace of evil—a period of time of sufficient length to allow for such an
adjudication of such an individual’s universe status as will prove entirely satisfactory to all
related universe personalities, and which will be so fair and just as to win the approval of
the sinner himself.” 

“But if this universe rebel against the reality of the truth and goodness refuses to approve
the verdict, and if the guilty one knows in his heart the justice of his condemnation but
refuses to make confession, then must the execution of sentence be delayed in
accordance with the discretion of the Ancients of Days. And the Ancients of Days refuse to
annihilate any being until all moral values and all spiritual realities are extinct, both in the
evildoer and in all related supporters and possible sympathizers.”  


       It should be gratifying to all of us to know that no one gets annihilated or dismissed
from eternity survival by mistake. The Ancients of Days are omniscient as is God. They can
probe into the core of ones being simultaneously with all the creatures within their purview
which is all the beings within their superuniverse (one trillion inhabitable planets). There
are only three in each of the seven superuniverses and they have to be unanimous in all
their decisions. If not destined to move on into the universe, one does not wake up in a
court somewhere in the universe and hear a decision regarding his survival—he merely
fails to wake up and becomes as he never existed in the first place—not so good for the
soulless. 
       There are several more very interesting pages referring to the mercy of the time lag
and the wisdom of delay, but too lengthy for us to add at this time. They are contained on
pages 615 thru 618.  
(The entire Urantia book can be read online: Urantiabook.com) 
We have mentioned the names of entities and places in the universe that non-readers are
unfamiliar with, but can find them listed on a linked site within its glossary. It’s the SPIDR
site 
       If one has no use for cosmic awareness and the understanding of the universe, then
these messages are relatively meaningless for you. It is inconceivable for most of us
involved in disseminating the revelation or in just reading the revelation as to why one
would not be concerned with information coming directly from God. Many of the beings
involved with this astounding revelation consort with God on Paradise on a regular basis
and attest by their involvement with the lowly class of mortals that they are very concerned
with the evolution of each and every one of us. All of us who have studied these messages
for a number of years believe wholeheartedly in their authenticity and feel gratified that we
were on the planet when they came through. We have been told that this revelation is not
for everyone—that it is about 100 years ahead of the time at which it will be accepted by
large populations, but if you are ready for it, there is nothing else like it on our world and
as far as we know through feed-back from readers, no one has yet failed to benefit from its
clear messages designed specifically for us as mortals on an evolving world confused and
with widespread ignorance.  
       There are definitively perceivable parallels manifesting in our society today that match
the egregious behavior of Lucifer for which he is currently being held accountable. His
manifesto is clearly printed out on page 603, a manifesto that matches our present
occupant of the White house, which indicates that we are heading for destruction if the
present ideology at the top level of government fails to change. In Lucifer’s manifesto he
denies the reality of the Universal Father. He contended that the local governments should
be autonomous; while protesting against the right of his creator to rule over him in any way
(Lucifer had conceded that Michael was indeed his father/creator but refused to be ruled
by him).  
       This kind of attitude prevails today with the narcissism manifesting today within the
White House. Our leader has denied the Christian God for the fabricated God of
Muhammad. Lucifer acknowledge that while Michael (Jesus) was his Father, he owed him
no allegiance. He contended that all rule of the local systems remain with the System rulers
and that that should not be interfered with. He called the Ancients of Days—foreign
potentates and stated if it were not for them the ascension plan would be automatic for all
humans—everyone would enter eternity automatically upon death.  
Lucifer became self-centered to the evident fact that he was determined to be narcissistic
and thoroughly rapped up within himself. His intent all along was to bypass the rulers of our
universe and carry-on as if they didn’t exist. Sort of like bypassing the Constitution as well
as Congress here on earth of which our president has been guilty of on many occasions. 
One can read for himself those conditions set forth by Lucifer, one of the most despised
rulers in the organization of systems ever to exist in our universe. His ideal was to exalt
himself as the supreme ruler over one thousand planets and become answerable to no
one.  Personally I see little difference between Lucifer, a universally recognized narcissist
with ideas of self-glorification, and our President who appears to possess the same
grandiose Ideals, by insisting on doing his own thing at every opportunity, with little regard
from the advice of others. This kind of aggrandizement becomes a temporary glorification
to oneself, but in the long-run places one’s soul in jeopardy for eternity survival—and
entrance into eternity is the name of the game.  
       Anyone reading the revelation and has drawn to the conclusion that our White House
occupant has evidenced wisdom in his decision making over the last seven years had
better read the book with a clear mind the second time around.  
Stated clearly throughout the messages is the fact that we are a quarantined planet,
confused and stagnating spiritually and without contact with other worlds and spiritual
beings. Anyone who happens to think our world is normal has not the imagination to
conceive of anything better.  Eternity is invitational, fortunately not everyone qualifies for
the after-life. When Jesus stated that there will be wars and talk of wars and false prophets
shall abound, he was by no means stretching the point. We’ve experienced hundreds of
wars since that proclamation and we now are experiencing the ravages set into motion by
the greatest false prophet in the last two thousand years—Muhammad
