THE SEVEN INCARNATIONS OF CHRIST MICHAEL JESUS:
Urantia [heavenly name for Earth] is the sentimental shrine of all Nebadon [the heavenly name for our local Universe], chief of ten million inhabited worlds, the mortal home of Christ Michael [Jesus], sovereign of all Nebadon, a Melchizedek minister to the realms, a system savior, an Adamic redeemer, a seraphic fellow, an associate of ascending spirits, a morontia progressor, a Son of Man in the likeness of mortal flesh, and the Planetary Prince of Urantia. And your record tells the truth when it says that this same Jesus has promised sometime to return to the world of his terminal bestowal, the World of the Cross.
This paper, depicting the seven bestowals of Christ Michael [Jesus], is the sixty-third of a series of presentations, sponsored by numerous personalities, narrating the history of Urantia [Earth] down to the time of Michael’s appearance on earth in the likeness of mortal flesh [Jesus]. These papers were authorized by a Nebadon commission of twelve acting under the direction of Mantutia Melchizedek. We indited these narratives and put them in the English language, by a technique authorized by our superiors, in the year A.D. 1935 of Urantia time.
As CHIEF of the Evening Stars of Nebadon [Angelic Order], I am assigned to Urantia [Earth] by Gabriel on the mission of revealing the story of the seven bestowals of the Universe Sovereign, Michael of Nebadon [Jesus], and my name is Gavalia. In making this presentation, I will adhere strictly to the limitations imposed by my commission.
The attribute of bestowal is inherent in the Paradise Sons of the Universal Father [on Paradise]. In their desire to come close to the life experiences of their subordinate living creatures, the various orders of the Paradise Sons are reflecting the divine nature of their Paradise parents. The Eternal Son of the Paradise Trinity led the way in this practice, having seven times bestowed himself upon the seven circuits of Havona during the times of the ascension of Grandfanda and the first of the pilgrims from time and space. And the Eternal Son continues to bestow himself upon the local universes of space in the persons of his representatives, the Michael and Avonal Sons. [Of which one was Jesus]
When the Eternal Son [along with our Universal Father and the Infinite Spirit, a permanently located member of the Trinity on Paradise, the gravity center of everything] bestows a Creator Son upon a projected local universe, that Creator Son assumes full responsibility for the completion, control, and composure of that new universe, including the solemn oath to the eternal Trinity not to assume full sovereignty of the new creation until his seven creature bestowals/incarnations shall have been successfully completed and certified by the Ancients of Days of the superuniverse of jurisdiction. This obligation is assumed by every Michael Son who volunteers to go out from Paradise [their original home] to engage in universe organization and creation. [Christ Michael Jesus is the creator of our Universe and of us. It is why some people think he is God.]
The purpose of these creature incarnations [on the different spirit levels] is to enable such Creators to become wise, sympathetic, just, and understanding sovereigns. These divine Sons are innately just, but they become understandingly merciful as a result of these successive bestowal/incarnation experiences; they are naturally merciful, but these experiences make them merciful in new and additional ways. These bestowals are the last steps in their education and training for the sublime tasks of ruling the local universes in divine righteousness and by just judgment.
[Our Universal Father requires these bestowal/incarnations, on different spirit levels, of his Paradise Sons in their and our Paradise Father’s ministry to the realms of Time & Space. There is no Time and there is no Space on Paradise. Time requires motion. Spirit personalities need no Space. Paradise is a Stationary Material Isle, the center of gravity, around which everything else revolves. It is a real physical location.
