The rebellion of Lucifer


(601.1) 53: 0.1 Lucifer was a brilliant primary Lanonandek Son of Nebadon. He had experienced service in many systems, had been a high counselor of his group, and was distinguished for wisdom, sagacity, and efficiency. Lucifer was number 37 of his order, and when commissioned by Melchizedek was listed as one of the hundred most able and brilliant personalities in more than seven hundred thousand of his kind. From such a magnificent beginning, through evil and error, he embraced sin, and is now considered one of three System Sovereigns in Nebadon who have succumbed to the pressure of the ego and who have surrendered to the sophistry of a false liberty - rejection of universe allegiance and disregard of fraternal obligations, blindness to cosmic relationships.

(601.2) 53: 0.2 In the universe of Nebadon, the domain of Christ Michael, there are ten thousand systems of inhabited worlds. In all the history of Lanonandek Sons, in all their work throughout these thousands of systems and at the universe headquarters, only three System Sovereigns have outraged the government of the Creator Son.


1. The leaders of the rebellion

(601.3) 53: 1.1 Lucifer was not an ascendant being; He was a created Son of the local universe, and he was told: "You were perfect in all your ways from the day you were created until iniquity was found in thee." Many times he had been on board with the Most Highs of Edentia. And Lucifer reigned "on the holy mountain of God," the administrative mount of Jerusem, for he was the chief executive of a great system of 607 inhabited worlds.

(601.4) 53: 1.2 Lucifer was a magnificent being, a brilliant personality; he stood next to the Most High Fathers of the constellations in the direct line of the universal authority. Although Lucifer's transgression, subordinate intelligences refrained from showing him disrespect and disdain prior to Michael's bestowal on Urantia. Even the archangel of Michael, at the time of Moses' resurrection, "did not bring against him an accusing judgment but simply said, 'the Judge rebuke you.'" Judgment in such matters belongs to the Ancients of Days, the rulers of the superuniverse.

(601.5) 53: 1.3 Lucifer is now the fallen and deposed Sovereign of Satania. The self-contemplation is most disastrous, even to the exalted personalities of the celestial world. It has been said of Lucifer: "Your heart was lifted up because of thy beauty; you corrupted your wisdom because of your brightness. "Your olden prophet saw his sad estate when he wrote:" How are you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How are you cast down, you who you dared to confuse the worlds! "

(602.1) 53: 1.4 It is heard very little of Lucifer on Urantia owing to the fact that he delegated his first lieutenant, Satan, to advocate his cause on your planet. Satan was a member of the same primary group of Lanonandeks, but had never exercised the functions of System Sovereign. He entered fully in the insurrection of Lucifer. The "devil" is none other than Caligastia, the deposed Planetary Prince of Urantia and a Son of the secondary order of Lanonandek. At the time when Michael was incarnated on Urantia, Lucifer, Satan, and Caligastia they were allied to abort his bestowal mission. But they signally failed.

(602.2) 53: 1.5 Abaddon was the chief of staff of Caligastia. He followed his master into rebellion and has ever since acted as chief executive of the Urantia rebels. Beelzebub was the leader of the disloyal midway creatures who allied themselves with the forces of the traitorous Caligastia.

(602.3) 53: 1.6 The dragon eventually became the symbolic representation of all these evil personages. After the triumph of Michael, "Gabriel came down from Salvington and bound the dragon (all the rebel leaders) for an age." Of the Jerusem seraphic rebels it is written: "And the angels who kept not their first estate but left their own habitation, he has reserved in sure chains of darkness to the judgment of the great day."


2. The causes of the rebellion

(602.4) 53: 2.1 Lucifer and his first assistant, Satan, had reigned on Jerusem for more than five hundred thousand years when in their hearts they began to array themselves against the Universal Father and his Son Michael, then vicegerent.

(602.5) 53: 2.2 There were no peculiar or special conditions in the system of Satania which suggested or favored rebellion. We believe that the idea took origin and form in Lucifer's mind, and that he might have instigated such a rebellion had been stationed everywhere. Lucifer first announced his plans to Satan, but it took several months to corrupt the mind of his able and brilliant associate. However, when once converted to the rebel theories, he became a bold and earnest advocate "self-assertion and liberty."

(602.6) 53: 2.3 No one ever suggested to Lucifer to rebel. The idea of ​​self-assertion in opposition to the will of Michael and to the plans of the Universal Father, as they were represented in Michael, had its origin in his mind. His relations with the Creator Son had been intimate and always cordial. At no time prior to the exaltation of his own mind did Lucifer openly express dissatisfaction about the universe administration. Despite his silence, for more than one hundred years of standard time the Union of Days on Salvington had reflectivity Uversa that all was quiet in the mind of Lucifer. This information was also communicated to the Creator Son and the Constellation Fathers of Norlatiadek.

(602.7) 53: 2.4 Throughout this period Lucifer became increasingly critical of the entire plan of universe administration but always professed sincere loyalty to the Supreme Rulers. His treachery was explicitly manifested for the first time on the occasion of a visit of Gabriel to Jerusem just a few days before of the open proclamation of the Lucifer Declaration of Liberty. Gabriel was so profoundly impressed with the certainty of an imminent revolt that went direct to Edentia to confer with the Constellation Fathers regarding the measures to be taken in case of open rebellion.

(603.1) 53: 2.5 It is very difficult to point out the exact cause or causes which finally culminated in the Lucifer rebellion. We are certain of only one thing, and that is: Whatever these first beginnings were, they had their origin in Lucifer's mind. There must have been a pride of self that is fed to the point of self-deception, so that Lucifer for a time really persuaded himself that his contemplation of rebellion was actually for the good of the system, if not the universe. When his plans had developed to the point of disillusionment, no doubt he had gone too far for his original and mischief-making pride permit him to stop. At some point in this experience he became insincere, and evil turned into deliberate and willful sin. What happened it is proved by the subsequent conduct of this brilliant executive. The was long offered opportunity for repentance, but only some of his subordinates ever accepted the proffered mercy. The Faithful of Days of Edentia, on the request of the Constellation Fathers, in person presented the plan of Michael for the saving of these flagrant rebels, but the mercy of the Creator Son was always rejected and rejected with increasing contempt and disdain.


3. The Lucifer manifesto

(603.2) 53: 3.1 Whatever the early origins of trouble in the hearts of Lucifer and Satan, the final outbreak took form as the Lucifer Declaration of Liberty. The cause of the rebels was expressed in three points:

(603.3) 53: 3.2 1. The reality of the Universal Father. Lucifer said that the Universal Father did not really exist, that physical gravity and space energy were inherent in the universe, and that the Father was a myth invented by the Paradise Sons to enable them to keep the government universe in the name of the Father . He denied that personality was a gift of the Universal Father. Also he insinuated that the finaliters were in collusion with the Paradise Sons to foist fraud upon all creation since they never brought back a predefined idea of ​​the actual personality of the Father which is discernible on Paradise. He showed reverence as ignorance. The charge was, terrible, and blasphemous. It was undoubtedly this veiled attack upon the finaliters that determined the ascendant citizens then on Jerusem to stand firm and remain steadfast in resistance to all the rebel's proposals.

(603.4) 53: 3.3 2. The universe government of the Creator Son - Michael. Lucifer contended that the local systems should be autonomous. He protested against the right of Michael, the Creator Son, to assume sovereignty of Nebadon in the name of a hypothetical Paradise Father and require all personalities to testify allegiance to this unseen Father. He asserted that the whole plan of worship was a clever scheme to aggrandize the Paradise Sons. He was willing to acknowledge Michael as his Creator-father but not as his God and rightful ruler.

(603.5) 53: 3.4 He attacked very violently to the right of the Ancients of Days - "foreign potentates" - to interfere in the affairs of the local systems and universes. These leaders denounced as tyrants and usurpers. He exhorted his followers to believe that none of these rulers could do aught to interfere with the full autonomy of their business if men and angels only had the courage to assert themselves and boldly claim their rights.

(603.6) 53: 3.5 He contended that the executioners of the Ancients of Days could be debarred from functioning in the local systems if the native beings would only assert their independence. Declared that immortality was inherent in the system personalities, that resurrection was natural and automatic, and that all beings would live forever if it were not for the arbitrary and unjust acts of the executioners of the Ancients of Days.

(604.1) 53: 3.6 3. The attack upon the universal plan of ascendant mortal training. Lucifer maintained that too much time and energy were expended upon the scheme of so thoroughly training ascending mortals in the principles of universe administration, principles which he alleged were unethical and false. He protested against the program to prepare for ages mortals of space for some unknown destiny and pointed to the presence of the finaliter corps on Jerusem as proof that these mortals had spent ages of preparation for a destiny of pure fiction. With derision he pointed out that the finaliters had encountered more glorious destiny than to be returned to humble spheres similar to those of their origin. He insinuated that they had been debauched by overmuch discipline and prolonged training, and they were actually traitors to their mortal fellows since collaborating now with the scheme of enslaving all creation to the fictions of a mythical eternal destiny for mortals ascenders. He advocated that ascenders should enjoy the liberty of individual self-determination. He challenged and condemned the entire plan of mortal ascension as sponsored by the Paradise Sons of God and supported by the Infinite Spirit.

(604.2) 53: 3.7 It was with such a Declaration of Liberty that Lucifer unleashed his orgy of darkness and death.


4. The outbreak of rebellion

(604.3) 53: 4.1 The Lucifer manifesto was issued at the annual conclave of Satania on the sea of ​​glass, the presence of the assembled hosts of Jerusem, on the last day of the year, about two hundred thousand years ago, Urantia time. Satan proclaimed that worship could be accorded the universal forces - physical, intellectual and spiritual - but that allegiance could be acknowledged only to the actual and present ruler, Lucifer, the '"friend of men and angels" and the "God of freedom".

(604.4) 53: 4.2 Self-assertion was the battle cry of the Lucifer rebellion. One of his main arguments was that, if self-government was good and right for the Melchizedeks and other groups, it was equally good for all orders of intelligence. He was bold and persistent in the advocacy of '' equality of mind "and the" brotherhood of intelligence. " He maintained that all government should be limited to the local planets and their voluntary confederation into the local systems. He rejected any other supervision. He promised the Planetary Princes that they should rule the worlds as supreme. He refused the location of legislative activities on the constellation headquarters and the conduct of judicial affairs on the universe capital. He argued that all these functions of government should be concentrated on the system capitals and proceeded to set up his own legislative assembly and organized his own tribunals under the jurisdiction of Satan. He ordered that the princes on the apostate worlds do the same.

(604.5) 53: 4.3 The entire administrative cabinet of Lucifer went over in a party and its members were sworn in publicly as the officers of the administration of the new head of the "liberated worlds and systems."

(605.1) 53: 4.4 There had been two previous rebellions in Nebadon, but in distant constellations. Lucifer held that these insurrections were unsuccessful because the majority of the intelligences failed to follow their leaders. He claimed that "majorities rule," and that "the mind is infallible." The freedom allowed him by the universe rulers apparently sustained many of his nefarious contentions. He defied all his superiors; however they did not seem to pay attention to his actions. He was given a free hand to prosecute his seductive plan without let or obstacles.

(605.2) 53: 4.5 Lucifer pointed to all the merciful delays of justice as a demonstration of the inability of the government of the Paradise Sons to stop the rebellion. He would openly defy and arrogantly challenge Michael, and the Ancients of Days and then highlighted the fact that it followed no reaction as positive proof of the impotence of the governments of the universe and the superuniverse.

(605.3) 53: 4.6 Gabriel was personally present throughout all these disloyal proceedings and only announced that in due course he would speak for Michael, and that all beings would be left free and unmolested in their choice; that the "government of the Sons for the Father desired only that loyalty and devotion which was voluntary, wholehearted, and sophistry-proof."

(605.4) 53: 4.7 Lucifer was left free to fully establish his rebel government and to organize it completely before Gabriel made any effort to contest the right of secession or to fight the rebel propaganda. But the Constellation Fathers immediately confined the action of these disloyal personalities to the system of Satania. However this time was a time of great trial and testing to the loyal beings of all Satania. All was chaotic for a few years and there was great confusion on the mansion worlds.


5. The nature of the conflict

(605.5) 53: 5.1 At the outbreak of the Satania rebellion, Michael took counsel with his Paradise brother, Immanuel. After this conference, Michael announced that he would pursue the same policy which had characterized his dealings with similar upheavals in the past, an attitude of non-interference.

(605.6) 53: 5.2 At the time of this rebellion and the two which preceded it there was no absolute and personal sovereign authority in the universe of Nebadon. Michael ruled by divine right, as vicegerent of the Universal Father, but not yet for their own personal right. He had not completed his bestowal career; He had not yet been vested with "all power in heaven and on earth."

(605.7) 53: 5.3 From the outbreak of rebellion to the day of his enthronement as sovereign ruler of Nebadon, Michael never interfered with the rebel forces of Lucifer; they were allowed to run freely for almost two hundred thousand years of Urantia time. Christ Michael now has ample power and authority to deal promptly, even summarily, with such outbreaks of disloyalty, but we doubt that this sovereign authority would lead him to act differently if another such upheaval happen.

(605.8) 53: 5.4 Since Michael elected to remain aloof from the actual warfare of the Lucifer rebellion, Gabriel summoned his personal group of Edentia and, in counsel with the Most Highs, elected to assume command of the loyal hosts of Satania. Michael remained on Salvington while Gabriel went on Jerusem, and establishing himself on the sphere dedicated to the Father - the same Universal Father whose personality Lucifer and Satan had questioned - in the presence of hosts of loyal personalities gathered he unfurled the banner of Michael, the ' material emblem of the Trinity government of all creation, the three azure blue concentric circles on a white background.

(606.1) 53: 5.5 The Lucifer emblem was a white flag with a red circle, the center of which was a black solid.

(606.2) 53: 5.6 "There was war in heaven; Michael's commander and his angels fought against the dragon (Lucifer, Satan, and the apostate princes); and the dragon and his rebellious angels fought but prevailed not. "This" war in heaven "was not a physical battle as a conflict of this kind can be conceived on Urantia. In the early days of the battle Lucifer spoke constantly planetary amphitheater. Gabriel conducted relentless exposure of the rebel sophistries from his headquarters nearby. The various personalities present on the sphere who were in doubt about the attitude would journey from one to another debate to come to a final decision.

(606.3) 53: 5.7 But this war in heaven was very terrible and very real. While displaying none of the barbarities so characteristic of physical warfare on the immature worlds, this conflict was far more relentless. In the fighting materials is life-threatening material, but the war in heaven was fought in terms of life eternal.


6. A commander loyal seraphic

(606.4) 53: 6.1 During the period between the outbreak of hostilities and the arrival of the new system ruler and his staff, there were acts of devotion and loyalty noble and inspiring performed by numerous personalities. But the most thrilling of all these daring feats of devotion was the courageous conduct of Manotia, the second in command of the Satania headquarters' seraphim.

(606.5) 53: 6.2 At the outbreak of rebellion on Jerusem the head of the seraphic hosts embraced the cause of Lucifer. This no doubt explains why such a large number of the fourth order, the system administrator seraphim, went astray. The seraphic leader was spiritually blinded by the brilliant personality of Lucifer; his charming ways fascinated the lower orders of celestial beings. They simply could not understand how it was possible for a personality so bright to go wrong.

(606.6) 53: 6.3 Not long ago, in describing the experiences associated with the onset of the Lucifer rebellion, Manotia said: "But my most life-giving was the thrilling adventure connected with the Lucifer rebellion when, as commander-in second seraphim, I refused to participate in the projected insult to Michael; and the powerful rebels sought my destruction by means of the liaison forces they had arranged. There was a tremendous upheaval on Jerusem, but not a single loyal seraphim was damaged.

(606.7) 53: 6.4 "Upon the default of my immediate superior it devolved upon me to assume command of the angelic hosts of Jerusem as the titular director of the confused seraphic affairs of the system. I was morally upheld by the Melchizedeks, ably assisted by a majority of the Material Sons, deserted by a tremendous group of my own order, but magnificently supported by the ascendant mortals on Jerusem.

(606.8) 53: 6.5 "Having been automatically thrown out of the constellation circuits by the secession of Lucifer, we were dependent on the loyalty of our intelligence corps, who forwarded calls for help to Edentia from the near system Rantulia. We found that the kingdom of order, intelligence and loyal spirit of truth were inherently triumphant over rebellion, self-assertion and so-called personal liberty. We were able to hold out until the arrival of the new System Sovereign, the worthy successor of Lucifer. And immediately after I was assigned to the corps of the Melchizedek receivers of Urantia, assuming jurisdiction over the loyal seraphic orders in the world of the traitorous Caligastia. Who had proclaimed his sphere a member of the newly projected system 'of liberated worlds and emancipated personalities'; system proposed in the infamous Declaration of Liberty that Lucifer proclaimed in his appeal to the 'intelligences who love freedom, free thought, future-oriented worlds governed and badly mismanaged Satania' "

(607.1) 53: 6.6 This angel is still in service on Urantia, where he works as associate chief of seraphim.


7. History of the Rebellion

(607.2) 53: 7.1 The Lucifer rebellion spread throughout the system. Thirty-seven seceding Planetary Princes swung largely administrations of their worlds toward the dell'arciribelle. Only Panoptia the Planetary Prince was unable to carry his people with him. On this world, under the guidance of the Melchizedeks, the people rallied to the support of Michael. Ellanora, a young woman of that mortal realm, took command of the human races, and not a single soul on that strife-torn world lined up under the banner of Lucifer. And since these loyal Panoptians have always served on the seventh Jerusem transition world as the caretakers and builders on the Father's sphere and detention on seven worlds that surround it. The Panoptians not only act as true custodians of these worlds, but they also execute the personal orders of Michael for the embellishment of these spheres for some future and unknown use. They do this work as they stop on the journey to Edentia.

(607.3) 53: 7.2 Throughout this period Caligastia sponsored the cause of Lucifer on Urantia. The Melchizedeks ably opposed the apostate Planetary Prince, but the sophistries of unbridled liberty and the delusions of self-assertion had every opportunity for deceiving the primitive peoples of a young and undeveloped world.

(607.4) 53: 7.3 All secession propaganda had to be carried on by personal effort because the broadcast service and all other avenues of interplanetary communication were suspended by the action of the system circuit supervisors. The actual outbreak of the insurrection the entire system of Satania was isolated in both circuits of the constellation and the universe. During this time all incoming and outgoing messages were dispatched by seraphic agents and Solitary Messengers. The circuits to the fallen worlds were interrupted, so that Lucifer could not utilize this avenue for the furtherance of his nefarious scheme. These circuits will not be reinstated until the archrebel lives within the confines of Satania.

(607.5) 53: 7.4 This was a Lanonandek rebellion. The higher orders of local universe sonship did not join the Lucifer secession, although a small number of the Life Carriers stationed on the rebel planets were somewhat 'influenced by the rebellion of the disloyal princes. No Trinitized Son diverted. The Melchizedeks, archangels, and the Brilliant Evening Stars were all loyal to Michael and, with Gabriel, valiantly contended for the Father's will and the Son's rule.

(608.1) 53: 7.5 None of the beings originating in Paradise was involved in disloyalty. Together with the Solitary Messengers they took up headquarters on the world of the Spirit and remained under the control of the Faithful of Days of Edentia. None of the conciliators apostatized, nor a single one of the Celestial diverted. But a heavy toll was taken of the Morontia Companions and the Mansion World Teachers.

(608.2) 53: 7.6 Supreme Order of seraphim, not an angel was lost, but a considerable group of the next order, the superior, were deceived and ensnared. Similarly, some members of the third order of angels, angels or supervisors were misled. But the terrible breakdown occurred in the fourth group, the administrator angels, those seraphim who are normally assigned to the duties of the system capitals. Manotia saved almost two thirds of them, but slightly over one third followed their chief into the rebel ranks. A third of all the Jerusem cherubim attached to the administrator angels were lost with their disloyal seraphim.

(608.3) 53: 7.7 Of all the planetary angelic helpers assigned to the Material Sons, about one third were deceived, and almost ten per cent of the transition ministers were ensnared. Symbolically, John saw this when he wrote of the great red dragon, saying: "And his tail drew a third of the stars of heaven and cast them into the darkness."

(608.4) 53: 7.8 The greatest loss occurred in the angelic ranks, but most of the lower orders of intelligence were involved in disloyalty. Of the 681,217 Material Sons lost in Satania, ninety-five per cent were casualties of the Lucifer rebellion. Large numbers of midway creatures were lost on those individual planets whose Planetary Princes joined the Lucifer cause.

(608.5) 53: 7.9 In many respects this rebellion was the most widespread and disastrous of all such occurrences in Nebadon. In this uprising they were involved more personality than the other two combined. It is to their everlasting dishonor that the emissaries of Lucifer and Satan spared not the infant-training schools on the finaliter cultural planet but rather sought to corrupt these developing minds in mercy salvaged from the evolutionary worlds.

(608.6) 53: 7.10 The ascending mortals were vulnerable, but they withstood the sophistries of rebellion better than the lower spirits. While many beings of the lowest mansion worlds, those who had not attained final fusion with their Adjusters, fell, should be ascribed to the glory of the wisdom of the ascension scheme that not a single member of the Satania ascendant citizenship resident on Jerusem participated in the Lucifer rebellion.

(608.7) 53: 7.11 Hour by hour and day by day the broadcast stations of all Nebadon were thronged by the anxious watchers of every imaginable class of celestial intelligence, who intently perused the bulletins of the Satania rebellion and rejoiced as reports continuously narrated the unswerving loyalty of the ascending mortals who, under their Melchizedek leadership, successfully withstood the combined and protracted efforts of all the subtle evil forces which so swiftly gathered around the banners of secession and the pity.

(608.8) 53: 7.12 They spent more than two years of system time from the beginning of the "War in Heaven" and the installation of Lucifer's successor. But at last the new Sovereign came, landing on the sea of ​​glass with his staff. I was among the reserves mobilized on Edentia by Gabriel, and I well remember the first message of Lanaforge the Constellation Father of Norlatiadek. It read: "Not a single Jerusem citizen was lost. All ascendant mortal survived the fiery trials and emerged from the crucial test triumphant and altogether victorious. "And on Salvington, Uversa and on Paradise was sent this message that ensured that the survival experience of mortal ascension was the most great security against rebellion and the surest safeguard against sin. This noble Jerusem band of faithful mortals numbered just 187,432,811.

(609.1) 53: 7.13 With the arrival of the archrebels Lanaforge were dethroned and shorn of all governing powers, though they were permitted freely to go about Jerusem, the morontia spheres, and even the individual inhabited worlds. They continued their deceptive and seductive efforts to confuse and mislead the minds of men and angels. But as concerned their work on the administrative mount of Jerusem, "their place was not found."

(609.2) 53: 7.14 While Lucifer was deprived of all administrative authority in Satania, there then existed no local universe power nor tribunal which could detain or destroy this wicked rebel; at that time Michael was not a sovereign ruler. The Ancients of Days sustained the Constellation Fathers in their seizure of the system of government, but they never subsequent decisions in the many appeals still pending with regard to the present status and future disposition of Lucifer, Satan, and their associates.

(609.3) 53: 7.15 Thus these archrebels were able to make the entire system to seek further penetration for their doctrines of discontent and self-assertion. But in almost two hundred thousand Urantia years they have been unable to deceive other worlds. No Satania worlds have been lost since the fall of the thirty-seven, not even those younger worlds peopled since that day of rebellion.


8. The Son of Man on Urantia

(609.4) 53: 8.1 Lucifer and Satan freely roamed the Satania system until the completion of the bestowal mission of Michael on Urantia. They were for the last time on your world together at the time of their combined assault upon the Son of Man.

(609.5) 53: 8.2 Formerly, when the Planetary Princes, the "Sons of God," were periodically assembled, "Satan came also," claiming that he represented all of the isolated worlds of the fallen Planetary Princes. But he has not been accorded such liberty on Jerusem since Michael's terminal bestowal. Subsequent to their effort to corrupt Michael when in the bestowal flesh, all sympathy for Lucifer and Satan has perished throughout all Satania, that is, outside the isolated worlds of sin.

(609.6) 53: 8.3 The bestowal of Michael terminated the Lucifer rebellion in all Satania aside from the planets of the apostate Planetary Princes. And this was the significance of the personal experience of Jesus shortly before his death in the flesh, when one day he said to his disciples: "And I saw Satan fall from heaven like lightning." He had come with Lucifer to Urantia for the last decisive battle.

(609.7) 53: 8.4 The Son of Man was confident of success, and he knew that his triumph on your world would forever settle the status of his enemies secular, not only in Satania but also in the other two systems where sin had entered . Survival for mortals and security for angels were established when your Master, in reply to the Lucifer proposals replied calmly and with divine assurance: "Stay away from me, Satan." This was in the beginning, the real end of the rebellion Lucifer. True, the Uversa tribunals have not yet adopted the executive decision on the appeal of Gabriel for the destruction of the rebels, but such a decree will be issued without a doubt in the fullness of time, because the first step in the hearing of this case It has already been done.

(610.1) 53: 8.5 Caligastia was recognized by the Son of Man as the technical Prince of Urantia up to shortly before his death. Jesus said: "Now is the judgment of this world; now the prince of this world be cast down. "And then still nearer the completion of his lifework he announced," The prince of this world is judged. "And it is this same dethroned and discredited Prince who was once termed "God of Urantia."

(610.2) 53: 8.6 The last act of Michael before leaving Urantia was to offer mercy to Caligastia and Daligastia, but they spurned his tender proffer. Caligastia, your apostate Planetary Prince, is still free to pursue his nefarious designs on Urantia, but has absolutely no power to enter the minds of men, nor can approach their souls to tempt or corrupt them unless they wish actually it is cursed with his wicked presence.

(610.3) 53: 8.7 Before the bestowal of Michael these rulers of darkness sought to maintain their authority on Urantia, and they persistently withstood the minor and subordinate celestial personalities. But since the day of Pentecost this traitorous Caligastia and his equally contemptible associate, Daligastia, are subject to the divine majesty of the Paradise Thought Adjusters and the Spirit of Truth protector, the spirit of Michael, which has been poured out upon all flesh.

(610.4) 53: 8.8 But even so, no fallen spirit ever did have the power to invade the minds or to harass the souls of the children of God. Neither Satan nor Caligastia could ever touch or approach the children of God by faith ; faith is an effective armor against sin and iniquity. It is true that "he that is born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one touches him."

(610.5) 53: 8.9 In general, when the weak and dissolute mortals are supposed to be under the influence of the devil and demons, are merely being dominated by their own inherent and debased tendencies, being led away by their own natural propensities. The devil has been given a lot of ills that are not attributable to him. Caligastia has been comparatively impotent since the cross of Christ.


9. The current status of the rebellion

(610.6) 53: 9.1 In the early days of the rebellion of Lucifer was offered by Michael salvation to all the rebels. To all who would show proof of sincere repentance, he offered, after obtaining a complete universe sovereignty, forgiveness and reinstatement in some form of universal service. None of the leaders accepted this merciful proffer. But thousands of the angels and the lower orders of celestial beings, including hundreds of children and Material Daughters, accepted the mercy proclaimed by Panoptians and were rehabilitated at the time of Jesus' resurrection nineteen centuries ago. Since then, these beings have been transferred to the Father's world of Jerusem, where they must be held, technically, until the Uversa courts hand down a decision in the case of Gabriel vs. Lucifer. But there is no doubt that when it comes out the verdict of annihilation these repentant and salvaged personalities will be exempted from the decree of extinction. These probationary souls now working with Panoptians taking care of the world of the Father.

(611.1) 53: 9.2 The archdeceiver is not never been on Urantia since the days when he tried to turn back Michael from the purpose to complete the bestowal and to establish himself finally and securely as the unqualified ruler of Nebadon. When Michael became the acknowledged leader of the universe of Nebadon, Lucifer was taken into custody by agents of the Ancients of Days of Uversa and has since been a prisoner on satellite number one of the group of the transition spheres of the Father on Jerusem. And beyond the rulers of other worlds and systems behold the end of the unfaithful Sovereign of Satania. Paul knew of the status of these rebellious leaders following Michael's bestowal, because of Caligastia's chiefs as "spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places."

(611.2) 53: 9.3 Michael, assumed the supreme sovereignty of Nebadon, petitioned the Ancients of Days, the authorization to intern all personalities involved in the Lucifer rebellion, pending the decisions of the superuniverse tribunals in the case of Gabriel vs. Lucifer, registered in the roles of the Supreme Court of Uversa almost two hundred thousand years ago, according to your timing. Regarding the group of rebels in the capital of the system, the Ancients of Days granted the Michael petition with one exception: Satan was allowed to visit periodically the apostate princes on the fallen worlds until another Son of God should be accepted these apostate worlds, or until such time as the courts of Uversa should begin the adjudication of the case of Gabriel vs. Lucifer.

(611.3) 53: 9.4 Satan could come to Urantia because you had no Son with permanent residence - neither Planetary Prince nor Material Son. After that Machiventa Melchizedek was proclaimed vicegerent Planetary Prince of Urantia, and the opening of the case of Gabriel vs. Lucifer has signalized the inauguration of temporary planetary regimes on all the isolated worlds. It is true that Satan did periodically visit Caligastia and others of the fallen princes right up to the time of the presentation of these revelations, when there occurred the first hearing of the application for Gabriel to the annihilation of archrebels. Satan is now unqualifiedly detained on the Jerusem prison worlds.

(611.4) 53: 9.5 After the final bestowal of Michael, no one in all Satania has desired to go to prison worlds to minister to the interned rebels. And there are more beings have been convinced to cause dell'ingannatore. For nineteen hundred years the status of the rebels remained unchanged.

(611.5) 53: 9.6 We do not expect that removal of the present Satania restrictions until the Ancients of Days have taken final decisions on archrebels. The system circuits will not be reinstated so long as Lucifer lives. Meanwhile he is completely inactive.

(611.6) 53: 9.7 The rebellion has ended on Jerusem. It ends on the fallen worlds as soon as divine Sons arrive. We believe that all rebels who will ever accept mercy have already done. We expect delivery of message-flash that will deprive these traitors of personality existence. We anticipate the verdict of Uversa will be announced with the execution order passed that will determine the annihilation of these interned rebels. Then will you look for their places, but will not find them. "And those who know you among the worlds will be astonished at you; you have been a terror, but never shall you be any more. "And so all of these unworthy traitors" become as though they had never been. " All await the Uversa decree.

(611.7) 53: 9.8 But for ages the seven prison worlds of spiritual darkness in Satania have constituted a solemn warning to all Nebadon, eloquently and effectively proclaiming the great truth "that the way of the transgressor is hard"; "That in every sin is concealed the seed of its destruction"; that "the wages of sin is death."

"Your olden prophet saw his sad estate when he wrote:" How are you fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How are you cast down, you who you dared to confuse the worlds! "
