Candace: Good morning everyone, I discovered this posting on AHS this morning from the Urantia Book, and thank the person so very much for this particular and very relevant selection. I love the UB. For those of you still reticent about it, try it on anyway, as it will grow on you. This final section 4 of the book, about the Life of Jesus has a lot of good reading in it, and you can read it independently of the rest of the book. I bolded a few lines.

 

 

PAPER 170: Section 4.
Jesus' Teaching About The Kingdom
________________________________________


P1862:9, 170:4.1 Jesus never gave a precise definition of the
kingdom. At one time he would discourse on one phase of the kingdom,
and at another time he would discuss a different aspect of the
brotherhood of God's reign in the hearts of men. In the course of
this Sabbath afternoon's sermon Jesus noted no less than five phases,
or epochs, of the kingdom, and they were:
1. The personal and inward experience of the spiritual life of
the fellowship of the individual believer with God the Father.
2. The enlarging brotherhood of gospel believers, the social
aspects of the enhanced morals and quickened ethics resulting from
the reign of God's spirit in the hearts of individual believers.
3. The supermortal brotherhood of invisible spiritual beings
which prevails on earth and in heaven, the superhuman kingdom of God.
4. The prospect of the more perfect fulfillment of the will of
God, the advance toward the dawn of a new social order in connection
with improved spiritual living -- the next age of man.
5. The kingdom in its fullness, the future spiritual age of
light and life on earth.

P1863:5, 170:4.2 Wherefore must we always examine the Master's
teaching to ascertain which of these five phases he may have
reference to when he makes use of the term kingdom of heaven. By this
process of gradually changing man's will and thus affecting human
decisions, Michael and his associates are likewise gradually but
certainly changing the entire course of human evolution, social and
otherwise.

P1863:6, 170:4.3 The Master on this occasion placed emphasis on the
following five points as representing the cardinal features of the
gospel of the kingdom:
1. The pre-eminence of the individual.
2. The will as the determining factor in man's experience.
3. Spiritual fellowship with God the Father.
4. The supreme satisfactions of the loving service of man.
5. The transcendency of the spiritual over the material in human
personality.

P1863:12, 170:4.4 This world has never seriously or sincerely or
honestly tried out these dynamic ideas and divine ideals of Jesus'
doctrine of the kingdom of heaven
. But you should not become
discouraged by the apparently slow progress of the kingdom idea on
Urantia. Remember that the order of progressive evolution is
subjected to sudden and unexpected periodical changes in both the
material and the spiritual worlds. The bestowal of Jesus as an
incarnated Son was just such a strange and unexpected event in the
spiritual life of the world. Neither make the fatal mistake, in
looking for the age manifestation of the kingdom, of failing to
effect its establishment within your own souls.

P1863:13, 170:4.5 Although Jesus referred one phase of the kingdom to
the future and did, on numerous occasions, intimate that such an
event might appear as a part of a world crisis; and though he did
likewise most certainly, on several occasions, definitely promise
sometime to return to Urantia, it should be recorded that he never
positively linked these two ideas together. He promised a new
revelation of the kingdom on earth and at some future time; he also
promised sometime to come back to this world in person; but he did
not say that these two events were synonymous. From all we know these
promises may, or may not, refer to the same event. 
(Candace: of interest, "Jesus" returned one year prior to the publishing of the UB in 1955.)

P1863:14, 170:4.6 His apostles and disciples most certainly linked
these two teachings together. When the kingdom failed to materialize
as they had expected, recalling the Master's teaching concerning a
future kingdom and remembering his promise to come again, they jumped
to the conclusion that these promises referred to an identical event;
and therefore they lived in hope of his immediate second coming to
establish the kingdom in its fullness and with power and glory. And
so have successive believing generations lived on earth entertaining
the same inspiring but disappointing hope.

 

Candace: I think much of that lost hope was around the falsified teachings of the Catholic Church, as I was clearly stated by "Jesus" back then he could well return in 2000 years, which was the time when the planet would be in the photon belt again.

But we are NOW in that time. I had written up quite a bit and then I found myself logged off the server when I completed the post and can't get the thoughts back. Interference.  I will attempt after I get over my tears to reconstruct it, perhaps later today and replace it here.  I should I suppose remember to write my stuff offline, but when I started this, I was planning on saying much, just putting it up. The words flowed, the time was right so I go with the flow. If I take time to open a word document to write in, the flow stops.  What I should do is remember to place the post on my clip board before I hit the "save" button, so if that happens, the material is not lost.
