There doesn’t seem to be any lack of prophecies in regards to the promised return of Jesus. The recent prophecy, “Wait! Can we know the day of Jesus return?”, seems to me to be an inaccurate speculation with a bit of sensationalism bound together in tradition. We know from the “White Stone” [Rev 2:17], otherwise known as the Urantia Book, that Jesus would come back for a short while to rid this planet of evil and it’s evil perpetrators, to administer Justice, install a new Planetary Prince to take the place of Caligastia, and begin a new dispensation; or as some might call it, a new age.
As to when, it seems to me that it would probably be around May 18th 2030. A little over 12 more years from now. I base this probable guesstimation based on the fact that a dispensation time would have to be coordinated with Paradise time, not by Biblical tradition, and that the UB says we should reckon our time based on Jesus’ ascension date; which occurred May 18th, 30 A.D. at 7:45 AM. Jesus was 36 years old.
The Master’s Ascension [193:5.1]
It was almost half past seven o’clock this Thursday morning, May 18, when Jesus arrived on the western slope of Mount Olivet with his eleven silent and somewhat bewildered apostles. From this location, about two thirds the way up the mountain, they could look out over Jerusalem and down upon Gethsemane. Jesus now prepared to say his last farewell to the apostles before he took leave of Urantia. As he stood there before them, without being directed they knelt about him in a circle, and the Master said:
“I bade you tarry in Jerusalem until you were endowed with power from on high [to receive his Spirit of Truth; which many have received over the years for the asking, including me]. I am now about to take leave of you; I am about to ascend to my Father, and soon, very soon, will we send into this world of my sojourn the Spirit of Truth; and when he has come, you shall begin the new proclamation of the gospel of the kingdom, first in Jerusalem and then to the uttermost parts of the world. Love men with the love wherewith I have loved you and serve your fellow mortals even as I have served you. By the spirit fruits of your lives impel souls to believe the truth that man is a son of God, and that ALL men are brethren. Remember all I have taught you and the life I have lived among you. My love overshadows you, my spirit will dwell with you, and my peace shall abide upon you. Farewell.
When the morontia [Part Spirit /Part Material] Master had thus spoken, he vanished from their sight. This so-called ascension of Jesus was in no way different from his other disappearances from mortal vision during the forty days of his morontia career on Urantia.
The Master went to Edentia [Capital of our Constellation] by way of Jerusem [Capital of our System] , where the Most Highs , under the observation of the Paradise Son, released Jesus of Nazareth from the morontia state and, through the spirit channels of ascension, returned him to the status of Paradise sonship and supreme sovereignty on Salvington. [The Capital of our Universe]
It was about seven forty-five this morning when the morontia Jesus disappeared from the observation of his eleven apostles to begin the ascent to the right hand of his Father [On the stationary Isle of Paradise], there to receive formal confirmation of his completed sovereignty of the universe of Nebadon.
So here we have the date of his ascension, May 18th, 30 A.D., 7:45 AM from which we are told to recon our time.
Using that date and time as a base to recon time, It seems we can estimate a date for his return based on the following logical realities.
The Urantia Book and the Bible tell us that a Paradise day is equivalent to 1,000 years of our time. The Universe seems to use the number 3 (i.e. The Trinity) very much; and, based on projection “as above, so below”, synchronization is based on the fact that Jesus rose on the third day after his crucifixion. iIt seems to me that we could guesstimate that Jesus would return here in three Paradise days. Three Paradise days would be approx. 2,000 years after his ascension plus the 1,000 years of promise peace in the Bible. This Planet has been under 2,000 years, or, 2 Paradise days, of evil & darkness. Will this planet rise again after 2 Paradise days of darkness into the light of a new age at the beginning of the 3ird Paradise day? If so, the beginning of the new age and 3ird Paradise day would appear to be approx May 18th, 2030. That’s pretty soon, only 12 1/2 more years. That would seem to be the date that would be in sync with Paradise time. Wouldn’t it be?
