So what just happened in Kentucky? Why did this apocalyptic tornado hit right there, instead of Hollywood or Washington D.C. or New York or Chicago? Could it possibly be that the narrow religious consciousness manifested that horrible tornado in that area and other tornados in nearby areas? Isn’t it written in Romans 8:29 (King James Version): “For whom He did foreknow, He also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.”
     That tornado was a result of cause and effect of the lower consciousness, not a judgment from God. The tornados happened to hopefully wake up the people in those areas to realize that their Christian fundamentalism doesn’t really work. That they are not the only ones going to heaven. That they don’t have to continue the Crusades against the Moslems and everybody else, for that matter. That the fetus is not a soul. That they should possibly begin to look to a higher revelation of truth from Jesus Christ, Master, who they say they follow. That this revelation just might be The URANTIA Book and The Cosmic Family volumes, which millions of them never even heard of, also called the Fifth Epochal Revelation and Continuing Fifth Epochal Revelation. That their beloved Jesus might have just given that revelation to the planet to bring unity to all the Christian denominations, who fight with each other behind closed doors, and to the religions of the world, who also fight behind closed doors.
     Do you really think that Jesus came to this planet to die on the cross? No, He did not. He came to teach the Fatherhood of God and the brother/sisterhood of humankind. And yes, He allowed Himself to be crucified. God the Father does not go against the will of man or woman.
     The start of the sign of the Virgin in the sky giving birth to a Divine New Order, or what the Christians think of as the New Millennium, or is referred to by Urantia Book readers as the first stage of light and life, was on September 23, 2017, which was the beginning also of the tribulation. So, given that date, we are now in the fourth year of the tribulation or what the Hopis (and others) call the times of the purification.
     And look, I’m not talking about aliens coming to attack us, or the Anunnaki coming to take over humanity and that the Anunnaki created us, and that the Cosmic Federation might come and help us out on this troubled world.
     No, I believe it’s pretty simple. Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He was born in a manger. He was crucified by the very beings He created. He resurrected three days later, just like He said He was going to do. If we believe that, aren’t we “saved,” as long as we’re trying to perfect ourselves in the image of His Father, who The URANTIA Book calls the Universal Father? But according to those Christian fundamentalists in Kentucky, and all over the United States and world, we Urantia Book readers aren’t even saved. We aren’t “washed in the blood.”
     It’s so ridiculous that it’s not even a laughing matter any more. It’s so ludicrous, that it’s painful that we are so easily condemned to an eternal hell because we don’t have a particular doctrine of salvation, which is so far off from what Jesus really taught that it’s hard to watch those fundamentalist pastors teach on salvation in their narrow-minded views, which condemn most of the peoples of this planet to hell. Does fundamentalist Christianity want to start another Crusade? Or do we really want to start a Civil War here in America? Come on you Pastors, what are you doing?
     Yeah, I think that Hollywood is going to get it. I think that Las Vegas is going to get it. I think that New York, and Chicago, and a lot of American cities are going to get it. But I think what God is saying right now, with the apocalyptic tornado hitting Kentucky, is that the judgment first starts in the household of God. Isn’t that what the Good Book says? Why did those Baptist and Presbyterian and other churches in Mayfield crumble? That’s right Pastors, the true church is not the building, or any denomination. It’s the people, who love the Lord Christ. How come it took a tornado knocking down the church building to get any of you to say this simple truth in scriptures publicly?
     In 1 Peter 4:17-19 of the New Testament it says, “For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to Him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.”
     The children that died and the pure-of-heart felt no pain, as their souls left the body before any demon of death struck them. Often children transcend this world very young, so that their parents or other relatives can stop and think of why this happened. The Lord is coming soon, and there’s a new kingdom coming. This one is passing away, and the Father wants us all to be together in the real one coming.
     But you fundamentalists also condemn others who are living like Jesus said to live—in community life, breaking bread together, and having all things in common—as being a cult. You misrepresent them, the very ones that are trying to do what Christ said they should do. Are you doing it? I guess Jesus was the first cult then. By your definition He definitely was.
     What does it take to wake up Americans? (listen to my song “Wake Up America” on Spotify So you’re going to build another church building and put all of your stupid doctrines back into the church again? Another tornado will just come along and knock it down again.
     The Great Commission that Jesus gave His apostles was to go into all the world and baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. That did not mean to go into all the world and to make them of Paul or of Peter, or of Andrew, or any other person, or city, country, or religion, or modern sect, like Baptists, or Pentecostals, or fundamentalists, or nondenominationalists, or Catholics. In the New Testament, 1 Corinthians 3:4 says:  “For while one saith, I am of Paul; and another, I am of Apollos; are ye not carnal?”
     The true meaning of being baptized in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit is just beginning to be known now in the pre-stage of light and life at Planetary Sacred Home, where outside the Global Temple, which is being built as I speak, will be a sign that has our motto:  “One God, One Planetary Family.” Or as the indigenous say, Mitakuye Oyason, “we are all related.”
     Having thousands of different Christian sects, which have thousands of doctrines within their individual sects, adds to the confusion that Earth has been in for 200,000 years since the Lucifer Rebellion. Fundamentalism doesn’t look good in any religion. The New Testament came along 2,000 years ago to show that the Old Testament needed some changes. And then the Quran came along. And then the Book of Mormon came along. And then The URANTIA Book came along. And then The Cosmic Family volumes came along.
     And everyone said “There is no new revelation beyond mine.” Like God went to sleep? When you go to sleep, that’s called being a fundamentalist, no matter what religion you’re in. You’re asleep at the wheel. And we live on a planet of accidents ready to happen because of being asleep at our own religious wheels.
     Now I can’t explain all these things I just said in detail. So go ahead and condemn me. With those that have spiritual eyes to see and spiritual ears to hear, they will understand exactly what I am saying—true spiritual eyes and true spiritual ears of love and understanding, not judgment. How possibly can I straighten out 2,000 years of manmade doctrine in one article? But I’ll put my butt on the line, because I hope some of you out there get the gist of what in God’s name I’m saying to you right now.
     When we say Merry Christmas to others this year, even though some of those fundamentalists think that we shouldn’t even celebrate Christmas because it’s a pagan holiday, remember this:  The URANTIA Book says Jesus was born actually on August 21st, so go ahead and celebrate that too. Or don’t celebrate anything. Or you can be the real Scrooge.
     But I’ll celebrate it, because when millions of people around the world celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ—who The URANTIA Book calls Jesus Christ Michael—and any season when people are more loving, and give gifts to each other, and say nice things about each other in cards and send them to other people, or greetings to one another saying Merry Christmas, I don’t have any problem celebrating December 25th or before that. Because when that’s over, people go back to being mean to each other and judgmental to each other and basically unkind to each other.
     You should have no problem with saying Merry Christmas to someone this year or any other year, or are you Scrooge?
     So as our Lord said, “Peace on Earth and good will to all men and women,” not just Christians. For we truly have a planet where it should be the slogan that I’m going to put outside of the Global Temple here in Rio Rico, Arizona:  “One God, One Planetary Family.” Could it really be anything else?

An excerpt from Paper 340 of The Cosmic Family, Volume 5 from Continuing Fifth Epochal Revelation

In the present day Urantia movement there are no churches, and there are no pastors really overseeing young people, or older people for that matter. And so young people pretty much do what they want to do, without guidance and without encouragement to follow the Commandments and laws of God.

Morality is very loose in the Urantia movement, which is comprised mostly of “readers” of many years who are firmly established in their interpretations of The Urantia Book and have set a precedent within that sub-culture that strongly influences many other readers. Generally the Commandments of God are not really taught or expected to be followed, and only a few try to keep the Commandments and set themselves apart from the fallen world, as Jesus Christ Michael said to do. “Be in the world but not of it.”

Basically the Lucifer Rebellion is alive and well in the Urantia movement. Here are some examples:

  • inciting fear and hatred in others
  • bearing false witness
  • irresponsible sexual promiscuity
  • exploitation of others’ weaknesses for selfish motives
  • absence of judiciary actions for people in the Urantia movement who are out of line and being bad examples of Urantia Book readers
  • substance abuse

The Old and New Testaments of the Bible should not be completely forgotten or discarded. The Old Testament has been the standard for thousands of years, and the New Testament for the last 2,000. The true Commandments of God have not changed, and The URANTIA Book does speak of those Commandments. So does the superconscious mind within individuals, and true human Eldership is confirmation of what the soul already knows but often disregards, for Eldership is a complement to the Thought Adjuster.

This is why we in Celestial Overcontrol had Global Community Communications Alliance form the first church based on The Urantia Book teachings—much of what was taught by Jesus Christ when He walked this planet. The spiritual principles taught and lived by Jesus in the first century should be applicable and lived in the twenty-first century in all aspects and in all churches.

In adherence to the teaching of Jesus when He said, “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s and to God the things that are God’s,” Global Community Communications Alliance became a legal church in the eyes of the United States government, in order to follow the example of Jesus Christ Michael and in harmony with Christian brethren of the last 2,000 years—observing the Godly moral values that the Old and New Testaments teach, which are in alignment with the morality taught in The Urantia Book.

When it comes to the actual truths presented, it doesn’t matter if there are some doctrinal differences between The URANTIA Book and the Bible. There are many doctrinal differences between the 2,000 Christian denominations that exist also, but all of these denominations are still considered Christian. So too should the followers of Jesus Christ Michael in the Urantia movement have a sense of unity and brotherhood/sisterhood with Christians.

The separation is not doctrinal as much as it is immorality, and The URANTIA Book could be accepted by Christianity, just like the Book of Mormon is accepted by the majority of Christian believers because of Mormonism’s strong Christian morality, even though there are differences doctrinally. Fundamentalists of all religions will not accept the faiths of others that are slightly different than their own within the same religious belief system. The 2,000 different denominations, with different doctrinal understanding of many things, proves that doctrines do not necessarily cause disunity, and believers still find a uniformity in the belief of Jesus Christ as the Son of God.

The people of the Judeo-Christian belief-system and Jesusonians of The Urantia Book teachings must begin to come together and can only do so when the Urantia movement is more one with the Commandments that our Christian brethren understand and follow. And this can only be done with elders within the Urantia movement setting a standard for young people to follow.

Where there are no shepherds, the flock dissipates and eventually gets eaten by wolves. The leaders in the Urantia movement who genuinely care for the welfare of other Urantia Book readers still shepherd by distance or not all. They write articles or come to seminars, study groups, or conferences, but there is very little personal guidance and admonishment to others. It is a quasi-leadership.

Jesus Christ Michael lived with His apostles. He was with them daily, and this is what spiritual community is all about. This example has not been followed in the Urantia movement as much as it should be, and as a result, the Urantia movement has suffered and has little or no cohesion. You cannot gather around a book, a text; you can only gather around each other. This is what the church is supposed to be—the “body” of Christ with a hierarchy structure, with elders and deacons. The Urantia movement has lost its understanding of 2,000 years of “Church” history.

The fact that Divine Administration is attacked by some personalities in the Urantia movement, because of Continuing Fifth Epochal Revelation, is against the principle of Christ Michael’s teachings when He said, as stated in The URANTIA Book, “My son, in matters of this sort it would be better for you to reckon that he who is not against us is for us.” This behavior is also contradictive of the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America.

If any Christian denomination did to their fellow Christians of other denominations what is being done to Divine Administration and its leadership by fellow Urantia Book readers, there would be an outcry of the true followers of Jesus Christ within Christianity to stop the persecution. Those aligned with Divine Administration are in their right to believe what they want to believe within their own Jesusonian faith. There are no strong voices within the Urantia movement to stop this persecution, because basically there are no leaders strong enough to confront this wrongdoing of “bearing false witness.”

Martin Luther was able to bring about a renaissance because what he was preaching and teaching was the truth, and other believers heard the truth he taught in their hearts and protected him and aligned with his teachings. That is why Divine Administration continues to grow, despite the persecution from some within the Urantia movement. However, for the Urantia movement to grow and change in this modern era, there must be an outcry within their own movement to make true changes and to protect the voices of change within the larger population of Urantia Book readers and within Divine Administration.

There will be some who will come against this teaching in this paper. This is my case in point. The Urantia movement is the antidisestablishmentarianism of Divine Administration and Continuing Fifth Epochal Revelation (CFER), much like the voices of the old order were to the reforms of the Church of England in the 19th century.
