2000-01-05-Jesus Shared With Others, Millennium
Group: Arcadia TeaM
Student; How is the millennium looked upon in the celestial realm?
JarEl; The millennium is traditionally the daily Paradise roll call. What this means is that a day in Paradise is a thousand years of your time. Every day in Paradise there is an accounting of every world, in every space, in every universe. This is the standard for the so-called millennial roll calls. Traditionally this is the time when the sleeping survivors have been resurrected on the mansion worlds. The trumpet call of the righteous brings forth the roll call.
In actuality, this millennium from a spiritual standpoint which passed just a few years ago, began on the third day in Paradise when Michael returned from gaining his sovereignty of his universe of Nebadon. The first item of agenda which Michael addressed was to immediately come to Urantia and to begin to establish a more profound and up stepped spiritual presence on your world. This started about twelve to fifteen years ago. At this time, the Lucifer Rebellion was adjudicated, and what is known as the reconnecting of the system circuits began to take effect.
With the up stepping of the spiritual presence on your world and the imminent spirit--human connection beginning to be up stepped in the effort to help man become aware of the person-to-person spiritual connection that must also be established on your world to fully complete the establishment of the spiritual circuitry being connected on Urantia. This is the spiritual aspect of the millennium.
Student: Does each planet have its own millennium? (Yes!) Then this is not necessarily coordinated with the other planets. (This is correct).
Student: In regard to the last point. As you were reviewing with us the life of Jesus and his teachings and the import of his life on our planet. Could you comment on the rest of the inhabited planets in Nebadon, on how they received the benefit of his bestowal on this planet. We have had the benefit of his life and his teachings here on this world. How do those other sons and daughters have a similar example and similar gospel made to them. That tied in with the third day, and the millennium rational would seem to indicate some correlation.
JarEl; To address the first part. The majority of the advanced worlds of Nebadon, had the advantage of the daily broadcasts of the universe of Nebadon as these broadcasts were encircuited through the reflectivity circuits of Nebadon.
In actuality, the spiritual administrations of the individual planets were able to receive these broadcasts. Many of the advanced mortal beings on these worlds were also privileged to participate in these broadcasts and the information was passed on down the line in this manner.
On many of the not so evolved worlds, there was somewhat of a time delay in which within the past several thousand years, many of these worlds have been and are still receiving this information, when they have come up to the capacity to gather this information. This means that a few of these worlds have evolved spiritually to begin to receive such in the manner in which you are receiving here tonight.
. . . In particular the life as Michael led is of familiar and particular importance to all mortal life on all worlds in all of Nebadon. Whether mortals come from a world as unevolved as yours or whether mortals come from a world advanced in the ages of light and life.
So in answer to the second part of your question. There are other worlds, sister worlds to Urantia, who are un circuited due to the rebellion, were in isolation and did not have access to the life and teachings of Master Michael as Jesus of Urantia. It is as a matter, in fact recently, that these worlds are beginning to receive this information much in the same way which you are receiving this information this evening. Urantia at this moment is afforded a special attention, . .. [since it is] the bestowal world of Michael, . . . [and has for the] past several thousand years . . . carried a personal and particular administrative course of action, separate and unique in all of Nebadon.
It was therefore decided that this world be given a text to help clarify some of the lingering and confused concepts which were originally brought to the planet. Also to prepare for the time in which you are now, for the future of the planet to come into sync with its rightful spiritual heritage. In retrospect to coincide with the return of Michael spiritually to this world and the most recent spiritual up stepping of the spirit-mortal connection of this world. It is only rightfully fitting that Urantians have a correct and unadulterated text and record of the Masters actual life as it was lived on this world of Urantia since the rest of the universe enjoys an accurate record.
Student: Thank you. I am to understand that the life and teachings of Michael were broadcast from this world to the rest of the universe even though our own circuits were cut off from the rest of the system.
JarEl; As you must be aware of, there were tremendous quantities of personalities and spirit presence resident on Urantia at the time of the Michael's bestowal. Also the full use and exercise of the archangel circuit, which in particular was established prior to the Michael bestowal, was utilized specifically for this purpose. [Urantia], as you have correctly stated, [was] an isolated world disconnected from the system spiritual circuits. The archangel circuit which is a direct circuit to Salvington, was preestablished during the pre-bestowal time of Michael for this purpose.
JarEl; This is correct.
Understand that there is a connection, a spirit connection in all of the universe, and it is the intention of Father and the purpose and beauty of the administration of the universe to fully en circuit and connect all beings. It is through this connection and the evolution of spirit in Nebadon that the universe will eventually come into light and life. Are you not told that when you go to the mansion worlds that those right above you are your teachers, just as those just right below you, you also teach. This is also true of the worlds of time and space. Those worlds which are in advanced stages of light and life, enjoy fraternization with celestials who are visitors and residents of those evolved worlds, and teach evolved beings on those worlds.
It should be of no concern that these phenomena play . . . [out] on this world of Urantia. This is indicated many times in the Urantia book and in many ways insinuated. . . . It is important that man reach for spirit in an effort to use faith and trust and to develop these spirit tools. If it was not important to develop spiritual tools, and strengthen use of these tools, God for all manners and purposes would have created you perfect. There would have been no need for man to reach up, and stumble as he searches in darkness for the light.
So little by little as you begin to understand, you begin to see a little more. If you could open your eyes and see the other side, might not you be overwhelmed at what you would behold. For there beside you are many who are willing and concerned, and ever ready to assist and help you in any way. So whether you can see them or not, it is therefore important to begin to cease doubt and exercise faith. As you begin to sense and experience, begin to trust that this is real.
Student; As was stated earlier, it is important that we truly relate to ourselves. Mostly the ones we don't know, we will meet, and the ones not so nice, if we reach out to them and connect.
JarEl; there are many ramifications that are not immediately obvious in connecting with others. For example in the Masters life, it is shown that many times after his death, when the new teachers of the gospels went into the lands adjacent to the Mediterranean, many who had met Joshua Ben Joseph were struck by the similar notion that this man that had given his life, and had lived these truths was very similar to the man they had met in the flesh. It was that they met a living being, all the more were they ready to believe. So it is in your own lives that when you begin to touch others, their sense of knowingness begins to awaken within them their own sense of beingness. Their own sense of their connection to God begins to strengthen for being touched from the outside. So this is what is meant as the spirit of connection. Connecting in a spiritual way to another.
Look in the life of Michael. As Michael walked on this earth and met people, he simply talked to them. He was . . . [more able] to discern their intention, he was able to see into their heart, able to look beyond the surface of whatever confusion played itself upon their face. He was able to discern the real person. The one who hid within from some form of fear. The person that hid behind their exterior. Michael had the capacity to penetrate the mask and camouflage and view the soul of the person. You also, once you begin to become clear with your spiritual connection and clear with your own sense of spirit will also begin to see through the mask and camouflage of yourself in an effort to see through others. This is a connection to spirit.
IT is just as important to stand up and walk down the mountain top and go down into the valleys and begin to sense your connection to everyone else. The Father himself descended from upon Paradise in the form of his Son and came on down into Urantia and walked upon the earth as one of them. This is the model.
JarEl; I would be concerned to show you your own transformation, and metaphorically sense the transformation which you are making from a material reference to a spiritual reference. What it is I am intending for you to sense and look at is that in the many years you have lived in this world, you have utilized the opportunities which were given to you to establish a broad base of friendship within business, community, church. Your focus in your stability has earned you a sense of material achievement.
Throughout your life, your intention was to connect more and more into a real sense of self, a real sense of worth. You began to sense spiritually around you, things which you sensed but were not able to totally grasp. In time things were shown to you, other teaching, you found the Urantia Book. For many years you sensed an opportunity to help those you love and trusted with this new found sense of hope and spiritual discovery, only to fall back on your own sense of excitement as others began to sense their own narrowness and closing down to this information. You held steadfast and through the years in your own life, senses through you connection to Father a newer sense of being.
This sense of Father, material father, as your father helped give you a sense of worth, help give you opportunities in your own life, you have also done for your own children. It is the same sense that the Father in heaven provides you with spiritual opportunities for you to develop a spiritual sense of worth in your life. I would imagine that you at this time in you life are sensing that spiritual worth. It is very difficult for me to tell you how to sense this, other than it is important to sense that the spiritual value has much more substance on the next worlds than it does down here.
Here you have to use faith and trust. On the worlds to come, this spiritual worth is far more valuable than gold and silver. It is more valuable than material worth. This is the sense of Fatherhood and Sonship. Your capacity to sense God as your Father is your ability to sense your brothers and sisters as your family. This begins here and now and tremendously challenged on the next worlds when you meet many more beings who are not of your kind. Beings more dissimilar to you and this sense of spiritual connection will further develop.
JarEl; Why is that?
Students;. Maybe I am stubborn.
JarEl; Sense that your intimate devotion and worship to Father gives you a real connection to God. This will establish a greater sense of connection to the universe at large. This is the purpose of the indwelling of God in man, To give individual man the sense of knowing. IT is important to trust this sense of knowing. IT is your challenge. You are not going to experience God as a fact, unless you experience God in your life as a fact. There will be no other announcement in the paper concerning this.
It will be only through your own personal and intimate relationship with the God who indwells you. IT is for each and every one of you to begin to trust that you may not experience fireworks, or sublime spiritual ecstasy, this does not mean that you are not connected to God in an intimate and personal way. Consider the subtle nature of God within you.
I used the word desire. Think about this desire in reference to God. God does desire you. IT is intended that YOU desire God.
JarEl: It is always good to keep a suitcase packed in the closet, is it not?
Student: Many of us don't have a before and after experience in our lives. We have a gradual process of becoming conscious of the Father. Now that we have an understanding of the Thought Adjuster. I t is a gradual knowingness rather than an experience of an altered state of consciousness. It is good to take spiritual stock of where we are as to where we have come from, to appreciate the awareness of the closeness we have with the Father.
JarEl; It takes time. It is like learning to skate. IF you put on the skates when you are young, at first you fall then take them off and back into the closet, you will not learn to skate. You must give it another try. After an amount of time you begin to move upon the skates, you trust your footing, trust your sense of control in motion. This is what it is like to trust God. To begin to sense God in motion, spirit moving in and through your life. Also this is connection. It is moving, alive, like living truth.
You can read words in a book, and speak and listen to another, but when you connect with spirit and sense the movement in your life, this is knowingness. When you sense your own life moving, you are not always confronted by obstacles, you sense a clearing in the thick of the woods, you begin to discern the path right beyond the entanglement in which you perceive yourself at the moment. It is this glimpse. This sense of movement, direction, flow is an indication of presence of spirit in your life. This is something which you activate. You open yourself to this ever living, present, ever moving capacity of spirit whose desire is to come through you and express, be a part of your life.
To daily reconnect with spirit. To daily connect and get a sense of this oneness and real presence with God. This knowingness, this affirmation is within a sense of your willingness to do the will of the Father.
