evolutionary world, as occurred when Michael of Nebadon appeared on Urantia to bestow himself
upon your mortal races.”

“The bestowal Son lives and dies for the spiritual uplift of the mortal races of a world. He establishes
the “new and living way”; his life in an incarnation of Paradise truth in mortal flesh, that very truth—
even the Sprit of Truth—in the knowledge of which men shall be free.


“The post bestowal Son age may extend from ten thousand to a hundred thousand years. There is
no arbitrary time allotted to any of these dispensational eras. This is a time of great ethical and
spiritual progress. Under the spiritual influence of these ages, human character undergoes
tremendous transformations and experiences phenomenal development.” “The teachings of Jesus
are really applicable to a mortal world which has had the preliminary training of the prebestowal
Sons with their dispensations of character ennoblement and cultural augmentation.”

“During this era the problems of disease and delinquency are virtually solved. Degeneracy has
already been largely eliminated by selective reproduction.”

“Throughout this epoch there is a gradual lessening of governmental supervision.” “…fewer and
fewer restrictive laws are necessary.” “The military branches of national resistance are passing
away; the era of international harmony is really arriving.” “Mortal affairs are almost, but not quite,
utopian. This truly is a great and glorious age!”

6.        URANTIA’S POSTBESTOWAL AGE

“…Your world is out of step in the planetary procession. Your master, when on earth, warned his
disciples that his advent would not bring the usual reign of peace on Urantia. He distinctly told them
that there would be “wars and rumors of wars,” and that nation would rise against nation.”

“Even on normal evolutionary worlds the realization of the world-wide brotherhood of man is not an
easy accomplishment. On a confused and disordered planet like Urantia such an achievement
requires a much longer time and necessitates far greater effort. UNAIDED social evolution can
hardly achieve such happy results on a spiritually isolated sphere. Religious revelation is essential
to the realization of brotherhood on Urantia.”

The realization of social brotherhood on Urantia depends much on the achievement of the following
personal transformations and planetary adjustments: 1. Social fraternity 2. Intellectual cross-
fertilization 3. Ethical awakening 4. Political wisdom (Selfish political sagacity is ultimately suicidal—
destructive of all those enduring qualities which insure planetary group survival) 5. Spiritual insight

“If you could be transplanted from your backward and confused world to some normal planet now in
the postbestowal Son age, you would think you had been translated to the heaven of your
traditions. You would hardly believe that you were observing the normal evolutionary workings of a
mortal sphere of human habitation.”
(Pg. 598-3)

WHAT’S IN STORE FOR THE PLANET?

My feelings along with many of our Urantia readers is that we are in dire need of divine help but
may have to wait for social events to play out prior to any divinity bestowal. In other words, Urantia
may have to experience a social and economic collapse before we can expect some form of divine
intervention.  However, since we have experienced set-backs attributed to sources apart from
mortality, we might receive some sort of leniency allowing for some type of more immediate
intervention, but I wouldn’t bet the farm on it.
