Body, Soul and Spirit: Salvation and Perfection


A human being is made up of body, soul and spirit. (And of course, there are the aspects of mind and heart.) Your body cannot get born again (or born from above; salvation). It is of the earth (dust) and it will return to the earth after you leave this earthly realm. "Dust to dust." (Ecclesiastes 12:7)
It is your soul that gets born again. Your spirit (Job 32:8) cannot get born again because in actuality, your spirit is the still small voice within; the Inner Voice; the candle light or lamp of God within; the spirit of God the Father in you - that comes into you when you attain the age of accountability and make your first real moral decision; usually between the ages of 4 and 6. Your spirit is your Thought Adjuster.
Your spirit within you does the actual work of soul transformation from spiritual death to spiritual life (from death to life). This is why Jesus Christ taught us that we are born of water and of the spirit. This "spirit" is your spirit - the Father's spirit already in you; waiting for you - your soul to come home to the Father. The spirit transforms your soul in the spiritual water, fountain of life within.
Your real "you" is your soul. Hence, "the soul that sins, shall die". (Ezekiel 18:20a) Please, take note: it says, "the soul that sins" NOT "the spirit that sins". The spirit (your spirit) is God (or is as God) and cannot sin. Your spirit is the image of God in you and works in you to get you - your soul to become born again and very slowly but surely become perfect as the Father in heaven is perfect. You cannot attain the Father's perfection in one lifetime. However, one day, in the heavenly realms, YOU will!
At death (death of your physical body), your spirit returns back to God who gave it. (Ecclesiastes 12:7) and will be reunited with your soul at resurrection and they will live in your new heavenly body. If you reject God's salvation the spirit does not return. And your soul shall surely die - eternal separation from God; spiritual death. The soul shall surely die if all attempts to salvage it fails. This soul death is the second death. (Revelation 20:14) The first death is the death of a body. The second death is the death of a soul.
Glory! Hallelujah!
#OneLove 💚💜💗

NB:
And Jesus said, "The kingdom of God is within you." It's within you because of your spirit, the spirit of the Father, the still small voice that is already within you. You just need to connect to the spirit by faith.

Intimate Communion with the Father Drives out Fear

"Draw near to God and he will draw near to you." - Book of James 4:8a

"There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love." - Book of 1 John 4:18

As you draw near to God, God will draw near to you. "God is love." As a result, your heart, your mind and your entire life will become immersed in the divine love - little by little, more and more. You will see improvements in your thought life; in your behavior or character. The fruits of the spirit will begin to gain deeper roots in you. This is practical living not mere empty talk. Closeness to God brings with it, the ability to feel the presence of God. This ushers in great faith and boldness into your life. This ushers in wisdom, knowledge and understanding. You draw close to God the Father through friendship with or intimate relationship with your Thought Adjuster - the still small voice within you. This is the Father's spirit within - living in your Holy of Holies within! Hallelujah! 🙌

Wisdom, knowledge and understanding help you to discover facts and truths for what they simply are AND to use them for your intellectual and spiritual development. This is how you become a most magnificent version of yourself - a living Jesus on the earth. Jesus Christ will begin to live through you in higher dimensions. Fear will have no place in your life. Faith and love will not allow it to. You are surrounded by God and his heavenly hosts. You are safe and sound! Now please, go out there and be a blessing to others!


NB:
If you understand this teaching of your still small voice within and how to fellowship with this voice, and you apply the understanding in your life, YOU WILL BE MORE THAN A CONQUEROR ON THE EARTH! Guaranteed! 👌

This is the secret to having amazing and powerful relationships with Jesus Christ (Christ Michael); with the Holy Spirit; with "Sons of God" like the Melchizedeks; with angels; with fellow human beings, etc, etc.
- This is the key to everything! ❤️
- This is why Jesus summarized his gospel message thus, "The kingdom of God is within you." The Father's kingdom is already within you because his Thought Adjuster, the still small voice is already within you. Oh! Glory!

One Love ❤️
Hallelujah! 🙌

Our Ascent To Paradise

The Fifth Epochal Revelation, FER (that is the Urantia Book, UB) tells us that our terrestrial planet, earth (Urantia) is under a group of planets that make up a system. When we die or leave this earth, we will first of all go to the "seven mansion worlds" or heavenly worlds of our system. They are in the system's capital. This capital is called Jerusem. Paul saw the third of these seven mansion worlds. 

Later, we will progress beyond Jerusem to the capital of our constellation. The capital is called Edentia. There, we will go through another set of various heavenly realms, worlds or planets. All these are in the celestial realms NOT terrestrial realm. This is the meaning of ascending from glory to glory! Hallelujah! 

We will continue to progress to higher and higher realms till one day, we will arrive in Paradise - the literal dwelling place of God the Father. There to receive a very special embrace from the Father. By this time, we have attained divine perfection. We have fulfilled the mandate, "Be perfect as your Father in heaven is perfect." You cannot be allowed into Paradise itself before you attain the Father's kind of perfection. 

If allowed and you see the Father, you will die. You will fissle out of existence. "No man can see God and live." To be able to see God the Father and live, you MUST be perfect as the Father is perfect. After attaining Paradise, we become, "Finaliters" - ready to rule and reign in worlds that are presently evolving in the Outer Space Levels. Oh! Hallelujah! Glory! 🙌 #OneLove ❤ 🍷

Personality Deliverance from the Limitations of Time and Space

(This leads to greater loving service to others) 

Urantia Book 65:8.6 

"When physical conditions are ripe, sudden mental evolutions may take place; when mind status is propitious, sudden spiritual transformations may occur; when spiritual values receive proper recognition, then cosmic meanings become discernible, and increasingly the personality is released from the handicaps of time and delivered from the limitations of space." 

For your personality to be increasingly released from the handicaps of time and delivered from the limitations of space, you must be experiencing intellectual and spiritual growth:  

👉 Mental evolutions has to be taking place in your life 

👉 Spiritual transformations as well 

👉 Deeper understanding of cosmic meanings as well

When your personality is increasingly released from the handicaps of time and delivered from the limitations of space, you will increasingly be able to function, to operate more and more beyond the constraints of time and space. 

I really got to think about this some more as a result of an experience I had during a night sleep. I saw myself moving or gliding in the air; moving through walls; being able to make myself visible to people and invisible to them; and I was filled with power. What I saw, to me, was my soul in action - my morontia soul. My soul, of course with my personality and my indwelling Thought Adjuster. 

NB:

Morontia Soul: We are being morontiaized. It starts here on earth. "When the third circle is attained, the Adjuster endeavors to morontiaize the mind of man during the remainder of the mortal life span..." (110:6.14) 

In 110:6.9 we see this, "2. Soul evolution. The emergence of the morontia soul indicates the extent and depth of circle mastery." 

Power: We have power. "All this power which is inherent in Jesus—the endowment of life—and which enabled him to rise from the dead, is the very gift of eternal life which he bestows upon kingdom believers..." (190:0.2)


+ + + 


This is one of the scenes: 

I went into a room in a building. Three ladies were there chatting, talking, relaxing. I then made myself visible to them and moved really close to one of them. I told her to accept Jesus as her personal Lord and Savior. And then, I literally placed my fingers on her chest, close to her right breast. There was a disease there - inside that part of her body. It was not visible because it was inside her. I slid my fingers across that section of her chest and removed the disease. It looked like a lump. Instantly, she was healed. 

So, there I was, sleeping on my bed and at the same time, found myself in a compound in Nigeria. Gliding in the air, moving through walls, got into a room and ministered to a sister.  A ministration of salvation and healing at the same time. And looking at UB paper 65:8.6, I am seeing a connection to it all... lol! 😀 I was literally free from some of the constraints, handicaps or limitations of time and space! Hosanna! Hallelujah! 🙏🏽

Soul Growth and Personality Mechanism Adjustments

Urantia Book 48:2.22 

"While the basic morontia forms of life and matter are identical from the first mansion world to the last universe transition sphere, there is a functional progression which gradually extends from the material to the spiritual. Your adaptation to this basically uniform but successively advancing and spiritizing creation is effected by this selective re-keying. Such an adjustment in the mechanism of personality is tantamount to a new creation, notwithstanding that you retain the same morontia form." 

"Such an adjustment in the mechanism of personality is tantamount to a new creation..." 

👆 

This verse is talking about adjustments in the mechanism of personality in the Mansion Worlds. This is as a result of the growth of your soul. (The fruits of the spirit in your life reveals the level of spiritual maturity of your soul.) Please, remember that no two persons have exactly the same personality. Your personality is unique to you and you alone. And it is changeless. However, "adjustments" in how it operates can take place. 

These adjustments also occur on earth because right here, you have a soul and if your soul is truly growing intellectually and spiritually, you will be climbing up the ladder of the seven cosmic circles - going inwards from the seventh to the first cosmic circle; leading to your attainment of the personal era of light and life - just like Jesus attained in the flesh (55:11.7). 

This explains why personality is increasingly released from the handicaps of time and delivered from the limitations of space. (65:8.6) And mighty, mighty, amazing things will begin to happen in your life and through your life. Glory! Hallelujah! 🙏🏽 🙌 🎊 

Always be of good cheer! Sincerely!

Akponah

 Akponah 

A Visit From My Biological Brother Who Was Never Born: The Past, Present and Future, Converging in One


This was a spiritual revelation while I slept at night on Tuesday, December 22, 2020, around 2 am. He said his name is, "Akponah". If he had been born, he would have been 53 years old in 2020. My brother. My elder brother. Son of my father and mother. Conceived and was due to arrive in 1967. But a miscarriage occurred. And as a result, he did not experience mortal life on earth. 


53 years from the day of the visitation, in 2073, he came to planet earth. He said he came to observe what his biological family life was like. He was at our home, our apartment at Okumagba Lay Out, Warri, Nigeria. We went there together. He was interested in seeing how we lived. "How did mother, father, my brothers and sisters live?" He came to see... 


Akponah is dark skinned like our father. He spent some time with me. We spoke. And he was willing to manifest himself to me in the spiritual. So, we went to a place. Some place. In some building. In what looked like an open space inside the building that led to various parts of the building. A beautiful vertical tube or column appeared. Maybe 4 to 6 feet tall. He was in the tube. But was not visible. It was filled with amazing blue-violet  bright lights and smoky or cloudy substance. Shining. Sprinkling. Sparkling. Moving from top to bottom. 


But I felt disappointed because an external force came and interfered with the beautiful, grandiose and powerful manifestation that was taking place right before my eyes! It came in the form of a circular colorless droplet, about 5 inches in diameter. It moved in the air in a straight line towards the tube - hit it gently and viola! They were gone: the droplet, the tube and Akponah. 


However, something very great happened next: Immediately, I began speaking in another tongue; a language I have not spoken before and I am not in any way good at! Hahaha... 😀 It was Japanese! I spoke very, very fluent and perfect Japanese and did so with so much focus and power! I would speak Japanese and would switch to English if I wanted to. My entire body was filled with power; with God's anointing flowing up and down my whole body like oil. 


What an experience! Glorious! 

Hallelujah! Hosanna! Selah! ❤️ 🎊 🙏🏾

Tossed out of Heaven to Earth?

Did God Really Chase Sinful Rebellious Spirits From The Heavenly Realms To Earth?


Before the Lucifer rebellion took place, unseen beings like the prince of Persia, the kings (or lords) of Persia, the prince of Greece, etc were all once loyal to Christ Michael and our heavenly Father. And they were placed in positions of leadership, authority and rulership in the spiritual realm over various parts of planet earth, in line with Universe Government Administration. This is how they got to our planet in the first place.

Book of Daniel 10:12-14 

12 Then he said to me, “Do not fear, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand, and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard; and I have come because of your words. 13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me twenty-one days; and behold, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, for I had been left alone there with the kings of Persia. 14 Now I have come to make you understand what will happen to your people in the latter days, for the vision refers to many days yet to come.” 


The heavenly messenger was delayed for 21 days by his fellow spirit beings (the prince of Persia and the kings or lords of Persia). These beings were rebel spirits. They still had some powers. God did not strip them totally and completely of all their powers. Also, they had some form of legal claim to the planet, since it was under their rule before the Lucifer rebellion started. They continued to have some form of leeway. These are some reasons why they were able to withstand the glorious heavenly messenger for 21 days till Michael came to his rescue.

It is very important to note that their right to rule has been stripped from them completely since the days of Christ Michael as "Jesus of Nazareth". Michael came here in the flesh and terminated the Lucifer Rebellion - technically. The full manifestation of this is unfolding before our eyes, little by little. The Lucifer rebellion has been terminated but this does not mean that automatically, within the twinkle of an eye, every single rebel spirit has been destroyed. No! The Universe does not operate that way.


When the Lucifer rebellion broke out, some celestial personalities joined Lucifer in his rebellion. Some of them were already on earth on various assignments for God. They were not immediately removed from the planet after they joined forces with Lucifer. Even the likes of Lucifer and Satan were not immediately imprisoned when they rebelled. All these unseen rebellious beings were permitted to move and act freely to a certain extent. And Christ allowed this, in part, to let everyone on the terrestrial realm (e.g. earth) and the celestial realm see, without a shadow of a doubt, the folly of their actions that "the way of the transgressor is hard"; that "within every sin is concealed the seed of its own destruction"; that “the wages of sin is death."  


It is very important to understand these things. The correct understanding will open your eyes to the fact that God did not drive them down from the heavenly realms to earth to make our lives a living hell. Some scriptures say "they were cast down".  This simply means they were disgraced, demoted and defeated. It does not mean they were driven out of the heavenlies, down to earth. 


Our God is a God of justice. He will not drive rebellious spirits to our planet. Think of it, please. Humans were on earth, minding their own business. They had nothing to do with Lucifer and his gang rebelling. So please, what sense does it make to chase them out of the heavenly realms to earth and leave them here to tempt and torment us? Is that justice? Is that fair? Is that love? It is important we understand the nature of God and how God operates. Those rebels were already on earth as loyal and obedient members of God's family, working for God. When they changed their minds and rebelled, they were not immediately removed from the planet. And there were those who were not stationed on earth but had access to move freely around the Universe. In Job 1:6, we see an example of Satan moving freely. This access was not withdrawn from them immediately. By the way, the account in Job is not very detailed. The Urantia Book presents a more detailed and clearer account - please, see Urantia Book 43:4.8-9.


Urantia Book 43:4.8-9 

43:4.8 That the teachers of olden times knew of these things is shown by the record: “And there was a day when the Sons of God came to present themselves before the Most Highs, and Satan came also and presented himself among them.” And this is a statement of fact regardless of the connection in which it chances to appear.


43:4.9 Since the triumph of Christ, all Norlatiadek is being cleansed of sin and rebels. Sometime before Michael’s death in the flesh the fallen Lucifer’s associate, Satan, sought to attend such an Edentia conclave, but the solidification of sentiment against the archrebels had reached the point where the doors of sympathy were so well-nigh universally closed that there could be found no standing ground for the Satania adversaries. When there exists no open door for the reception of evil, there exists no opportunity for the entertainment of sin. The doors of the hearts of all Edentia closed against Satan; he was unanimously rejected by the assembled System Sovereigns, and it was at this time that the Son of Man “beheld Satan fall as lightning from heaven.” 

Source: The Urantia Book, Paper 43, The Constellations https://www.urantia.org/urantia-book-standardized/paper-43-constellations

We see here in the Urantia Book that even after Satan rebelled against our heavenly Father and his Christ, Jesus Christ (or Christ Michael), he was still allowed a certain degree of freedom. Please, why? We need to understand that Satan and all other rebels were created by Christ. They are his creatures; his children. As a human parent, please, do you kill your children or disown them immediately they rebel against you? The answer is, "No!" A big no! Your love for them as a true parent, a real parent makes you to give them opportunities to repent and come back to their senses. Now, if you, as a human being can do this to your mortal children, then please, how much more our everlasting heavenly Father and his Christ - beings who have infinite love, mercy and compassion. Please, think about this for a minute.

Allow the mind of Christ to pervade your being, then you will begin to see the wisdom in giving rebellious spirits time to repent and offering them opportunities for correction and rehabilitation. This verse below will help you see that God can forgive a fallen rebel spirit. Forgiveness and salvation is not for humans alone! 


Urantia Book 53:9.1 

"Early in the days of the Lucifer rebellion, salvation was offered all rebels by Michael. To all who would show proof of sincere repentance, he offered, upon his attainment of complete universe sovereignty, forgiveness and reinstatement in some form of universe service. None of the leaders accepted this merciful proffer. But thousands of the angels and the lower orders of celestial beings, including hundreds of the Material Sons and Daughters, accepted the mercy proclaimed by the Panoptians and were given rehabilitation at the time of Jesus’ resurrection nineteen hundred years ago. These beings have since 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 matter of Gabriel vs. Lucifer. But no one doubts that, when the annihilation verdict is issued, these repentant and salvaged personalities will be exempted from the decree of extinction. These probationary souls now labor with the Panoptians in the work of caring for the Father’s world." 

Source: The Urantia Book, Paper 53, "The Lucifer Rebellion" https://www.urantia.org/urantia-book-standardized/paper-53-lucifer-rebellion


In paper 43 of the Urantia Book, we see that if a rebel spirit insists on persisting in evil, sin and iniquity, his freedom begins to be gradually curtailed, limited or reduced. Thus, a time came when Satan was not welcomed anymore to the Edentia conclave, the gathering of the “Sons of God”. The doors of the hearts of all Edentia closed against him; he was unanimously rejected by the assembled System Sovereigns (a.k.a “Sons of God”), and it was at this time that the Son of Man “beheld Satan fall as lightning from heaven.” Even at that, Christ still opened the door of repentance to Satan and all other rebels. Satan continued to reject it and a time came when he was seized and taken to a prison world in the heavenly realms.

The Urantia Book also reveals that Lucifer and some other rebels have been seized and taken away to hellish prison worlds in the heavenly realms - the Jerusem Prison Worlds. However, the Urantia Revelation does not say that every single rebel spirit has been imprisoned. As at the time of the publishing of the book, a rebellious being Caligastia, our deposed planetary prince, the one the Apostle Paul called, "the prince of the power of the air" was still roaming freely on earth. There are other rebel spirits that have not been removed from earth even to this day. They are being removed one after the other, slowly but surely. These things take time. Why? 


God is patient and merciful. There's no rush. Please, remember, they are all his children. Do you think it pleases a Father to see his child destroyed? Our heavenly Father, in his infinite wisdom always look to see if there's a window of opportunity for repentance in the heart of a rebellious child. Also, I believe there are other reasons that we may not know of right now, as to why some rebel spirits are still here. But we should be rest assured that our heavenly Father has our best interest at heart - ALWAYS!

There's great wisdom in delaying justice sometimes. Mercy delays justice for good reasons. There are so many lessons that are learnt. There are so many good and great things that come out as a result - for the benefit of all.


Conclusion 


It is very important to know that God our heavenly Father and his Christ (Christ Michael) did NOT drive or chase fallen angels, Lucifer, Satan, etc to planet earth. When you begin to understand more and more of the true nature of God, you will find it easy to see this and understand/appreciate why. The belief that God drove "fallen angels" (rebel spirits) down to earth from heaven is not correct. Such a belief implies that God just got rid of them quickly and pushed them away from his heavenly domain to our earthly domain. It suggests that God took care of his own comfort and did not care much about our own comfort. Such a belief is not consistent with the nature and character of God. 


"Get out of here! Go to earth and do whatever you like there!"

👆🏼 

Please, do you really believe a loving heavenly Father would do this? We really had nothing to do with the Lucifer rebellion. We did not cause, create or initiate it. We did not participate in it, at least, initially. We did not participate in the war in heaven. So please, why should someone think God chased them to meet us on earth? Is it just and fair to push those heartless spirits down to earth, just like that? 


They were not chased out of heaven to earth to be a pain in our behind. They had the freedom to move around freely before they rebelled. They moved around from the heavenly realms to our earthly realm and beyond. Some of them were literally stationed on earth to serve the divine plan and purpose of Deity. Some of them were stationed here while they were faithful and loyal to God BEFORE they rebelled. After they rebelled, they were not immediately removed from the planet for some key reasons in line with the Father's nature of justice, mercy and love.  


The heavenly Father has already made more than enough provisions for his human or mortal children such that even though some rebel spirits are present on earth, they (i.e. mortals or humans) have been given the power, wisdom, knowledge and understanding to withstand and overcome them all. It is up to you, the individual human being whether or not you will make use of all that your spirit Father has freely given to you. The Father loves all his children: terrestrial and celestial alike; seen and unseen and he makes ample provision for their salvation, growth, care, upkeep and eternal destiny. Hallelujah!  


One Love,
