Appendices to a Study of the master Universe
William S. Sadler. Jr.
- Human beings are mixed up about what the words, “God”, “deity”, and “divinity” mean. – still more confused about the way divine personalities work together.
- We want to give you more truth, more spiritual things, but hard with your poor language. We are allowed to use new words when not available in English to talk about Deity and the big creation, to tell about things, meanings, and values.
- Urantia is one of many worlds, making the local universe Nebadon, then seven superuniverse Orvonton, circling around Havona the central universe, no beginning never end, universe of divine perfection. At the very center, is the Isle of Paradise, not moving, the center point of infinity. God lives there. The seven superuniverses are growing and changing. We call them altogether the grand universe where people lives. It is part of the master universe which includes universes where nobody lives yet, in outer space.
I. Deity and Divinity
- Deity is at work, to do with matter, mind, and spirit. Some of this work is personal ; some of it is not. All of it has the same flavor, divinity.
- Deity can be real as a personality, as God, but this is not all. Deity can also exist before and beyond personality. What pulls all of the work of Deity together is divinity.) above material level, the work of Deity is pulling by divinity.
- Total Deity is in action on each 7 levels, a house of 7 stories. Deity is in action all the time on each of these seven levels.
2. Three Levels
- finite : creation. Have creature like Urantians, having a beginning, created. Only be one place at a time. The Deity level of Supremacy works on this finite level of existence.
- absonite : as something in between the finite and the absolute. No beginning and no ending, not limited by time and space, but not ignore, just transcend time and space. Call them absoniters, not created, are eventuated. The Deity level of ultimacy has to do with this absonite level of existence.
- absolute : Absonite level transcends time and space; absolute level just ignores time and space – it is timeless and spaceless. For example, on Paradise is absolute as far as time and space concerned, where Paradise Trinity works.
- Deity existential (non-growing) : Eternal Son. Deity experiential (growing) : Supreme Being. Deity associative ( grouping together) : God the Sevenfold. Deity undivided (complete oneness) : Paradise Trinity.
- Divinity : flavor of Deity, all acts of Deity. Human beings would understand truth, beauty, goodness. Personality shows it, which appears as love, mercy, and ministry.
Someone started the universe, nothing started this someone.
This someone is the First Source, God.
How he acts with limit, as a personality, to show relative divinity.
1. Prepersonal : detaches a piece of himself, Thought Adjuster.
2. Personal : father of all personalities, both created beings like angels, procreated beings like human.
3. Superpersonal : relating more than fine, like absonite beings.
God : mostly from Universal Father --- Paradise Creator Sons.
God is always personality. (7)
1. God the Father : Universal Father, Creator, the First Person of Deity.
2. God the Son : Eternal Son, co-ordinate Creator, Spirit Controller.
3. God the Spirit : Infinite Spirit, Conjoint Actor, Mind Bestower.
4. God the Supreme : finite God, all experiences of creators
and creatures in time and space. Personal achievement, evolutionary and growing, Supreme Being.
5. God the Sevenfold : Deity personality working in time and space.
6. God the Ultimate : works in supertime and transcendental space.
Absonite beings are superpersonal, having relationship with God the Ultimate.
7. God the Absolute :
Supreme Being : first level of unifying Deity, experience/expansion.
Ultimate is second, God the Absolute in third final level.
At present not present, but existent as non-experiencible.
This is end of Deity growth/expansion, no more personalize.
God fully revealed himself.
III The First Source and Center
- Infinite and eternal, his own free will limits him.
- God, Universal father is the personality of ---.
- Physical universe : gravity – Isle of Paradise (nether)
+ Deity의 중요성에 대하여 유란시아 국제협회 크리스 욷 전 회장이 협회 소식지에 올린 글
UAI Tidings Jan 2016
President, Urantia Association International
On a standard world there are programs in place to help us gain level experiences, and those first world lessons are corrected and made true on the mansion worlds. But we have been given a decimal planet rocked by rebellion and default. We have skipped standard mortal epochs and had two emergency revelations given to us. We have never been visited by a Magisterial Sons, our Bestowal Son was the creator of the local universe, and The Urantia Book provides us with a cosmological view of Deity generally imparted by the Trinity Teacher Sons.
Our first layer is as jagged as the Himalayas. Our Mansion World training will not be the standard program designed to gradually lift a mortal up to Jerusem citizenship. Instead our program will be filling in gaps and smoothing over our rough edges. On Jerusem we know we will be housed in the special Adgondontor sector away from the average ascending mortals. And the uneven training we are receiving now will define us until we reach Paradise. I find this very intriguing.
( 유란시아 유한생명의 특별한 환경 )
일반 정상적인 세상은 경험을 하도록 하는 프로그램이 주어지며, 이러한 첫 번째 세상의 교육은 맨션세상에서 교정을 받아서 제대로 바로잡게 된다. 그러나 우리는 십진위 세상이 주어졌으며, 반란과 실책으로 타격을 받았다. 정상적인 인간 시대가 빠졌으며, 두 차례의 응급 계시가 주어졌다. 판관 아들이 방문하지 못했고, 우리에게 내려온 수여 아들은 지역우주 창조자 (+ 예수)였으며, 그리고 Deity 라는 우주 철학적인 관점이 포함된 더 유란시아 북이 주어졌는데, 이는 일반적으로 삼위일체 선생 아들이 전해주는 것이다.
우리가 겪는 첫 번째 단계는 히말라야를 오르듯이 험난하다. 우리가 받게 되는 맨션 세상 훈련은 제루셈 시민이 되려고 단계적으로 올라가는 유한생명에게 예정된 것과 같은 일반적인 프로그램이 아닐 것이다. 그 대신 우리가 받는 프로그램은 우리들이 지닌 거친 잘못된 점을 다듬고 부드럽게 하는 것일 것이다. 제루셈에서 상승하는 보통의 유한생명과는 떨어져 있는 특별한 아곤돈터 구역에서 살게 될 것이다. 그리고 지금 우리가 받고 있는 남다른 훈련이, 우리가 파라다이스에 도착할 때까지의 우리를 결정하게 된다. 나는 이 점이 대단히 흥미롭다.
