Seraphic Planetary Government
THE Most Highs rule in the kingdoms of men through many celestial forces and agencies but chiefly through the ministry of seraphim...
Seraphim and their associated cherubim have much to do with the details of the superhuman government of a planet, especially of worlds which have been isolated by rebellion. The angels, ably assisted by the midwayers, function on Urantia as the actual supermaterial ministers...Seraphim as a class are occupied with many assignments other than those of personal and group guardianship.
Urantia is not without proper and effective supervision from the system, constellation, and universe rulers. But the planetary government is unlike that of any other world in the Satania system, even in all Nebadon. This uniqueness in your plan of supervision is due to a number of unusual circumstances:
1. The life modification status of Urantia. [Hano - Earth is what is also known as a decimal planet, which is every 10th planet in the cosmos, and is used as a new lifeform development experimental world. New lifetypes developed here can be transported to and transplanted on other worlds in the cosmos. Therefore is it also essential to protect life on Earth. We must be its custodians, not its exploiters and destroyers. Earth is also host to the importation and transplantation of life from other worlds, which is a common way of spreading life through the cosmos.]
2. The exigencies of the Lucifer rebellion. - https://www.urantia.org/urantia-book-standardized/paper-53-lucifer-rebellion
3. The disruptions of the Adamic default. - https://www.urantia.org/urantia-book-standardized/paper-75-default-adam-and-eve
4. The irregularities growing out of the fact that Urantia was one of the bestowal worlds of the Universe Sovereign. Michael of Nebadon is [was] the Planetary Prince of Urantia. [Hano - Machiventa Melchizidek is now the permanent Spiritual Planetary Prince of Urantia/Earth, taking over from Christ Michael (CM for short) of Nebadon who's been the Prince since his final bestowal and the subsequent deposement of the traitorous Prince Caligastia, the original "devil", of the Lucifer Rebellion. For more on Machiventa see https://www.urantia.org/urantia-book-standardized/paper-93-machiventa-melchizedek , and on CM's betowals - https://www.urantia.org/urantia-book-standardized/paper-119-bestowals-christ-michael and https://www.urantia.org/urantia-book-standardized/paper-120-bestowal-michael-urantia
Esu Immanuel Sananda Kumara, who shared the final bestowal of Christ Michael in a double incarnation 2000 years ago as Jesus, is the physical planetary prince of Urantia. Both returned again (with separate forms this time) in 1954 from the Pleiades with 1 million spacecraft of the Galactic Federation of Light and various advanced planets (which has since grown to many millions more from all over the universes of Orvonton and Havona, come to assist and observe) to oversee the final stages of the adjudication of the Lucifer Rebellion and the transition of Earth into Light and Life.
AbundantHope is the official on-the-ground Second Coming Organisation of which will also become the defacto physical World Government for the 1000 year Millenial Reign of Christ Michael , as spoken of in the Bible too, which officially began in February 2019]
5. The special function of the twenty-four planetary directors.
6. The location on the planet of an archangels' circuit.
7. The more recent designation of the onetime incarnated Machiventa Melchizedek as vicegerent [now permanent] Planetary Prince.
The Sovereignty of Urantia
The original sovereignty of Urantia was held in trust by the sovereign of the Satania system. It was first delegated by him to a joint commission of Melchizedeks and Life Carriers, and this group functioned on Urantia until the arrival of a regularly constituted Planetary Prince...
Authority to act for Michael as Planetary Prince has been recently vested in Machiventa Melchizedek...
As...Planetary Prince he would undoubtedly continue in charge of the planet until the final adjudication of the Lucifer rebellion and probably on into the distant future of planetary settlement in light and life....
Each administrative day on Urantia begins with a consultative conference, which is attended by the governor general, the planetary chief of archangels, the Most High observer, the supervising supernaphim, the chief of resident Life Carriers, and invited guests from among the high Sons of the universe or from among certain of the student visitors who may chance to be sojourning on the planet.
The direct administrative cabinet...consists of twelve seraphim, the acting chiefs of the twelve groups of special angels functioning as the immediate superhuman directors of planetary progress and stability...
These twelve groups of angels...are immediately directed by the seraphic council of twelve, the acting chiefs of each group...
The twelve corps of the master seraphim of planetary supervision are functional on Urantia as follows:
1. The epochal angels
These are the angels of the current age, the dispensational group. These celestial ministers are intrusted with the oversight and direction of the affairs of each generation as they are designed to fit into the mosaic of the age in which they occur. The present corps of epochal angels serving on Urantia is the third group assigned to the planet during the current dispensation.
2. The progress angels
These seraphim are intrusted with the task of initiating the evolutionary progress of the successive social ages. They foster the development of the inherent progressive trend of evolutionary creatures; they labor incessantly to make things what they ought to be. The group now on duty is the second to be assigned to the planet.
3. The religious guardians
These are the "angels of the churches," the earnest contenders for that which is and has been. They endeavor to maintain the ideals of that which has survived for the sake of the safe transit of moral values from one epoch to another. They are the checkmates of the angels of progress, all the while seeking to translate from one generation to another the imperishable values of the old and passing forms into the new and therefore less stabilized patterns of thought and conduct. These angels do contend for spiritual forms, but they are not the source of ultrasectarianism and meaningless controversial divisions of professed religionists. The corps now functioning on Urantia is the fifth thus to serve.
4. The angels of nation life
These are the "angels of the trumpets," directors of the political performances of Urantia national life. The group now functioning in the overcontrol of international relations is the fourth corps to serve on the planet. It is particularly through the ministry of this seraphic division that "the Most Highs rule in the kingdoms of men."
5. The angels of the races
Those who work for the conservation of the evolutionary races of time, regardless of their political entanglements and religious groupings. On Urantia there are remnants of nine human races which have commingled and combined into the people of modern times. These seraphim are closely associated with the ministry of the race commissioners, and the group now on Urantia is the original corps assigned to the planet soon after the day of Pentecost.
6. The angels of the future
These are the projection angels, who forecast a future age and plan for the realization of the better things of a new and advancing dispensation; they are the architects of the successive eras. The group now on the planet has thus functioned since the beginning of the current dispensation.
7. The angels of enlightenment
Urantia is now receiving the help of the third corps of seraphim dedicated to the fostering of planetary education. These angels are occupied with mental and moral training as it concerns individuals, families, groups, schools, communities, nations, and whole races.
8. The angels of health
These are the seraphic ministers assigned to the assistance of those mortal agencies dedicated to the promotion of health and the prevention of disease. The present corps is the sixth group to serve during this dispensation.
9. The home seraphim
Urantia now enjoys the services of the fifth group of angelic ministers dedicated to the preservation and advancement of the home, the basic institution of human civilization.
10. The angels of industry
This seraphic group is concerned with fostering industrial development and improving economic conditions among the Urantia peoples. This corps has been seven times changed since the bestowal of Michael.
11. The angels of diversion
These are the seraphim who foster the values of play, humor, and rest. They ever seek to uplift man's recreational diversions and thus to promote the more profitable utilization of human leisure. The present corps is the third of that order to minister on Urantia.
12. The angels of superhuman ministry
These are the angels of the angels, those seraphim who are assigned to the ministry of all other superhuman life on the planet, temporary or permanent. This corps has served since the beginning of the current dispensation...
None of these angelic groups exercise direct or arbitrary control over the domains of their assignment. They cannot fully control the affairs of their respective realms of action, but they can and do so manipulate planetary conditions and so associate circumstances as favorably to influence the spheres of human activity to which they are attached....
[Hano - These are the angels known as the Guardian Angels. They are the angels closest to us. They are the ones that, if we choose eternal life, could accompany us all the way to Paradise and , aside from the Father Fragment, become our closest eternal friends.
The entire paper is recommended. I'm placing the whole Destiny Guardian section - https://www.urantia.org/urantia-book-standardized/paper-113-seraphic-guardians-destiny]
Seraphim are not known as guardians of destiny until such time as they are assigned to the association of a human soul who has realized one or more of three achievements: has made a supreme decision to become Godlike, has entered the third circle, or has been mustered into one of the reserve corps of destiny.
In the evolution of races a guardian of destiny is assigned to the very first being who attains the requisite circle of conquest [Hano - Level of Spiritual Consciousness]. On Urantia the first mortal to secure a personal guardian was Rantowoc, a wise man of the red race of long ago.
All angelic assignments are made from a group of volunteering seraphim, and these appointments are always in accordance with human needs and with regard to the status of the angelic pair-in the light of seraphic experience, skill, and wisdom. Only seraphim of long service, the more experienced and tested types, are assigned as destiny guards. Many guardians have gained much valuable experience on those worlds which are of the non-Adjuster fusion series. Like the Adjusters, the seraphim attend these beings for a single lifetime and then are liberated for new assignment. Many guardians on Urantia have had this previous practical experience on other worlds.
When human beings fail to survive, their personal or group guardians may repeatedly serve in similar capacities on the same planet. The seraphim develop a sentimental regard for individual worlds and entertain a special affection for certain races and types of mortal creatures with whom they have been so closely and intimately associated.
The angels develop an abiding affection for their human associates; and you would, if you could only visualize the seraphim, develop a warm affection for them. Divested of material bodies, given spirit forms, you would be very near the angels in many attributes of personality. They share most of your emotions and experience some additional ones. The only emotion actuating you which is somewhat difficult for them to comprehend is the legacy of animal fear that bulks so large in the mental life of the average inhabitant of Urantia. The angels really find it hard to understand why you will so persistently allow your higher intellectual powers, even your religious faith, to be so dominated by fear, so thoroughly demoralized by the thoughtless panic of dread and anxiety.
All seraphim have individual names, but in the records of assignment to world service they are frequently designated by their planetary numbers. At the universe headquarters they are registered by name and number. The destiny guardian of the human subject used in this contactual communication is number 3 of group 17, of company 126, of battalion 4, of unit 384, of legion 6, of host 37, of the 182,314th seraphic army of Nebadon. The current planetary assignment number of this seraphim on Urantia and to this human subject is 3,641,852.
In the ministry of personal guardianship, the assignment of angels as destiny guardians, seraphim always volunteer their services. In the city of this visitation a certain mortal was recently admitted to the reserve corps of destiny, and since all such humans are personally attended by guardian angels, more than one hundred qualified seraphim sought the assignment. The planetary director selected twelve of the more experienced individuals and subsequently appointed the seraphim whom they selected as best adapted to guide this human being through his life journey. That is, they selected a certain pair of equally qualified seraphim; one of this seraphic pair will always be on duty.
Seraphic tasks may be unremitting, but either of the angelic pair can discharge all ministering responsibilities. Like cherubim, seraphim usually serve in pairs, but unlike their less advanced associates, the seraphim sometimes work singly. In practically all their contacts with human beings they can function as individuals. Both angels are required only for communication and service on the higher circuits of the universes.
When a seraphic pair accept guardian assignment, they serve for the remainder of the life of that human being. The complement of being (one of the two angels) becomes the recorder of the undertaking. These complemental seraphim are the recording angels of the mortals of the evolutionary worlds. The records are kept by the pair of cherubim (a cherubim and a sanobim) who are always associated with the seraphic guardians, but these records are always sponsored by one of the seraphim.
For purposes of rest and recharging with the life energy of the universe circuits, the guardian is periodically relieved by her complement, and during her absence the associated cherubim functions as the recorder, as is also the case when the complemental seraphim is similarly absent.
