How The Devil Got Into 533 -- Part III
THE FULL TEXT OF THE 1945 COMMUNICATION
The several "communications" and "instructions" listed by Carolyn Kendall
have never been published in full text, as far as I am aware. I made requests
to several people who might have copies, but without result. The only exception
is the 1945 "communication." This circulated within the Urantia community.
My copy seems to be many photo generations from the original, but apparently
typewritten by Christy on her famous upright Underwood typewriter.
Carolyn's document helped immensely for us to understand how the policies of the Urantia Foundation and the Brotherhood were conditioned by Caligastia. How truly unfortunate that the participants in those activities, from 1940 unto the present day, did not understand the origins of their guidance, and do not now perceive how their lives, thoughts, expectations, and dreams are even now directly influenced by that evil spirit personality.
The reasons for non-publication of the full text of those "communications"
may be several fold. One of those is the corrupt nature of the material.
The evidence shows that Christy was not a good channeler. When the Devil
used her mind the transmission was not completely free of her subconscious
adulterations. Therefore, the "communications" were edited, apparently
by Bill Sadler, Jr., for public consumption. What follows is the published
version of the 1945 "communication," with Bill Sadler's human expressions
interwoven with the "revealed" text. Hence this document is identified
I show that full text here, interspersed with my brief comments where I feel it may be helpful to point out remarks important to the betrayal of God at 533.
NOTES ON A COMMUNICATION RECEIVED
(I denote the 1945 text with grey background; my notes are in regular print.)
These remarks are such a mixture of truth, half-truth, and spiritual fraud that one hardly knows where to start an analytical examination.
Much of it has purely human expression. Such phrases as "increased its trial and tribulations a million fold" reflect human exaggeration, not celestial articulation.
I point out the following elements:
The attention is transient, concerned with the passing moments of human and international scenes. The purpose seems to be to deflect recognition away from the secular mechanistic society in which everyone one is deeply imbedded to solving immediate temporal concerns within that godless environment.
The attention is to the emotional concerns of the moment, reinforcing attention to purely human psychological elements rather than upon loftier notions of mortal contributions to God's destiny program.
These introductory paragraphs show how the Devil was concentrating the attention at 533 on current events, and immediate concerns. He was working on their emotions and fears, rather than lifting them out of the trough of dark sentiments, or taking them to cosmic heights.
"Full responsibility for peace rests upon the English-speaking nations" shows this concentration. Such teaching is counter to the Revelation.
P.1490 - §7 Another world war will teach the so-called sovereign nations to form some sort of federation, thus creating the machinery for preventing small wars, wars between the lesser nations. But global wars will go on until the government of mankind is created. Global sovereignty will prevent global wars--nothing else can.
Full responsibility for peace does not rest upon the English-speaking nations. It rests upon a global desire to submit national sovereignty to global government. But global government cannot be achieved by godless philosophies.
P.2081 - §5 Materialism denies God, secularism simply ignores him; at least that was the earlier attitude. More recently, secularism has assumed a more militant attitude, assuming to take the place of the religion whose totalitarian bondage it onetime resisted. Twentieth-century secularism tends to affirm that man does not need God. But beware! this godless philosophy of human society will lead only to unrest, animosity, unhappiness, war, and world-wide disaster.
This secularism is rampant throughout the world, including the English-speaking nations.
Only a world-wide disaster will cause the nations to reassess their priorities -- national and international.
"Why did democracy decline so rapidly between the two wars?"
In 1945 the world was reassessing the totalitarian states of German, Italy, Japan and Russia. The names Mussolini, Hitler and Tojo are used to focus on those individuals and not upon higher world forces of godlessness. Such references to current political figures do not appear in the Revelation. The Revelation has higher visions than attention to momentary human personalities.
For good reason. Over the intervening fifty years a major shift in attitudes took place among the nations. We witnessed the breakup of the Soviet Union, and reversion to capitalist philosophies around the world, including China, where political leaders saw the power of capitalism, to discard the fallacious economic policies of communism.
Far sighted celestial personalities, capable of understanding the forces underlying the social vehicles of this world, would not have made statements which would fail to anticipate those trends. Only a deceptive personality, attempting to capitalize on the momentary and immediate concerns would engage in presentations of this kind.
Each of the sentences and phrases in this passage comes under the same scrutiny.
You may note how the Devil inserts expressions to make this appear as an appeal from celestial beings. Such phrases as "high privilege of planetary service," or "a new world order" exhibit this appeal.
The phrase "set the clock of civilization back 2,000 years" is so exaggerated I personally have difficulty believing it would have been used by Sadler or Bill Sadler. It is a bald, flat statement that is untrue to mature sensibilities. Immature minds might use such extreme expression. It probably was designed to appeal to the majority of the Forum. Carolyn Kendall is a good example of such immature thinking. Christy was also.
Stark phrases are now introduced.
"Evolution can have freedom only with compulsion," and "we must restrain by compulsion," do not come from true celestial sources. Contrast this with:
P.381 - §5 "The Spirit never drives, only leads. If you are a willing learner, if you want to attain spirit levels and reach divine heights, if you sincerely desire to reach the eternal goal, then the divine Spirit will gently and lovingly lead you along the pathway of sonship and spiritual progress. Every step you take must be one of willingness, intelligent and cheerful co-operation. The domination of the Spirit is never tainted with coercion nor compromised by compulsion."
P.2084 - §5 "In winning souls for the Master, it is not the first mile of compulsion, duty, or convention that will transform man and his world, but rather the second mile of free service and liberty-loving devotion that betokens the Jesusonian reaching forth to grasp his brother in love and sweep him on under spiritual guidance toward the higher and divine goal of mortal existence. Christianity even now willingly goes the first mile, but mankind languishes and stumbles along in moral darkness because there are so few genuine second-milers--so few professed followers of Jesus who really live and love as he taught his disciples to live and love and serve."
Perhaps we are supposed to understand the direction of thought as political, and not spiritual. Truly, the purpose is to take our thinking away from higher destiny goals and replace them with immediate emotional concerns. The author is building a psychology for the introduction of even darker thoughts.
Note how concepts are mixed. The statement, "To allow Germans to live here and retain their German citizenship is like letting the wolves live with the sheep," is an exhortation directed at high human emotions current at the time. The further statement "Offices must be held by citizens trained in schools of statesmanship" then reverts to phraseology which one finds in the Revelation. By joining these two concepts devotion is perverted to inconsistent, unstable, and arbitrary sentiments.
NATIONALISM The nations are suffering from intense industrialism and augmented nationalism.
In times past Nationalism was a good thing; it brought people together
in a common interest, within law and representative government. But when
a social ideal becomes a political dogma, it becomes an obstacle to world
progress. Nationalism becomes a relic of patriotism which no forward-looking
prophet would dare touch.
Nationalism persists because it has not been attacked by modern and
intelligent citizens who do not seek to disrupt, but to save it by intelligent
control. Present day Nationalism is akin to polytheism. Nation and race
became the pagan god of many modern people. The time has come to give way
before a monotheistic policy of Internationalism. The churches must divorce
themselves from Nationalism. One can immediately discern the confusion which lies in the earlier
exhortation of "Full responsibility rests upon the English-speaking
nations," certainly based in a common western godless philosophy, to
the "intense industrialism and augmented nationalism" which is truly
the roots of the philosophy of the English-speaking nations.
The assumption here is that the many churches of Christianity will somehow
continue to express the religious needs of the western world, and that
they should reshape their thinking beyond loyalty to the United States,
England, or any other country. However, the Revelators expressed lack of
confidence in the current socialized religious structures of the world.

P.2082 - §7 "But paganized and socialized Christianity stands in need of new contact with the uncompromised teachings of Jesus; it languishes for lack of a new vision of the Master's life on earth. A new and fuller revelation of the religion of Jesus is destined to conquer an empire of materialistic secularism and to overthrow a world sway of mechanistic naturalism. Urantia is now quivering on the very brink of one of its most amazing and enthralling epochs of social readjustment, moral quickening, and spiritual enlightenment."
That is revelation! The remarks in this 1945 communication are perversion.
Will internationalism be created by force of arms?
Compare this with:
P.598 - §1 4. Political wisdom. Emotional maturity is essential to self-control. Only emotional maturity will insure the substitution of international techniques of civilized adjudication for the barbarous arbitrament of war. Wise statesmen will sometime work for the welfare of humanity even while they strive to promote the interest of their national or racial groups. Selfish political sagacity is ultimately suicidal--destructive of all those enduring qualities which insure planetary group survival.
How, then, can one use force of arms to achieve internationalism if only emotional maturity will insure civilized adjudication for the barbarous arbitrament of war?
If the statement "International Police will enforce the laws, and lesser nations be forced into the international union," is based on the godless philosophies of the larger nations, how will this achieve world peace? Are not the arbitrary philosophical policies of the western nations, especially the United States, over the past fifty years sufficient to show the abject failure of such policies? Then why are they being advocated in these diabolical remarks?
This "revelation" goes on and on with such perversions.
If nationalism and national sovereignty reached its deathbed in World War II why does it still hold sway in the world? This is another example of how the transient expectations of the human personalities at 533 were entrapped by such perverted logic.
Compare this with the following:
P.1489 - §1 Urantia will not enjoy lasting peace until the so-called sovereign nations intelligently and fully surrender their sovereign powers into the hands of the brotherhood of men--mankind government. Internationalism--Leagues of Nations--can never bring permanent peace to mankind. World-wide confederations of nations will effectively prevent minor wars and acceptably control the smaller nations, but they will not prevent world wars nor control the three, four, or five most powerful governments. In the face of real conflicts, one of these world powers will withdraw from the League and declare war. You cannot prevent nations going to war as long as they remain infected with the delusional virus of national sovereignty. Internationalism is a step in the right direction. An international police force will prevent many minor wars, but it will not be effective in preventing major wars, conflicts between the great military governments of earth.
By such comparisons one can see how Caligastia employed the conceptual suggestions of the Revelation to twist them into his perversions.
P.1489 - §2 As the number of truly sovereign nations (great powers) decreases, so do both opportunity and need for mankind government increase. When there are only a few really sovereign (great) powers, either they must embark on the life and death struggle for national (imperial) supremacy, or else, by voluntary surrender of certain prerogatives of sovereignty, they must create the essential nucleus of supernational power which will serve as the beginning of the real sovereignty of all mankind.
We will not achieve peace by going to war. And we will not achieve piece by holding onto the deception of national sovereignty. All nations must surrender their power to make war into the hands of a representative world-wide government. But which of the great powers has done so? They all still reserve the right to national decisions.
We were clearly told: "Beware! This present godless philosophy of human society will bring only unrest, unhappiness, animosity, war, and world-wide disaster."
We can depend upon Revelation, or we can be guided by diabolical "Instructions." Consider all of the following remarks. Contrast them with these diabolical "Instructions."
P.1489 - §4 To use an important nineteenth- and twentieth-century
illustration: The forty-eight states of the American Federal Union have
long enjoyed peace. They have no more wars among themselves. They have
surrendered their sovereignty to the federal government, and through the
arbitrament of war, they have abandoned all claims to the delusions of
self-determination. While each state regulates its internal affairs, it
is not concerned with foreign relations, tariffs, immigration, military
affairs, or interstate commerce. Neither do the individual states concern
themselves with matters of citizenship. The forty-eight states suffer the
ravages of war only when the federal government's sovereignty is in some
P.1489 - §5 These forty-eight states, having abandoned the twin
sophistries of sovereignty and self-determination, enjoy interstate peace
and tranquillity. So will the nations of Urantia begin to enjoy peace when
they freely surrender their respective sovereignties into the hands of
a global government--the sovereignty of the brotherhood of men. In this
world state the small nations will be as powerful as the great, even as
the small state of Rhode Island has its two senators in the American Congress
just the same as the populous state of New York or the large state of Texas.
P.1490 - §1 The limited (state) sovereignty of these forty-eight
states was created by men and for men. The superstate (national) sovereignty
of the American Federal Union was created by the original thirteen of these
states for their own benefit and for the benefit of men. Sometime the supernational
sovereignty of the planetary government of mankind will be similarly created
by nations for their own benefit and for the benefit of all men.
P.1490 - §2 Citizens are not born for the benefit of governments;
governments are organizations created and devised for the benefit of men.
There can be no end to the evolution of political sovereignty short of
the appearance of the government of the sovereignty of all men. All other
sovereignties are relative in value, intermediate in meaning, and subordinate
P.1490 - §3 With scientific progress, wars are going to become
more and more devastating until they become almost racially suicidal. How
many world wars must be fought and how many leagues of nations must fail
before men will be willing to establish the government of mankind and begin
to enjoy the blessings of permanent peace and thrive on the tranquillity
of good will--world-wide good will--among men?
P.1490 - §4 If one man craves freedom--liberty--he must remember
that all other men long for the same freedom. Groups of such liberty-loving
mortals cannot live together in peace without becoming subservient to such
laws, rules, and regulations as will grant each person the same degree
of freedom while at the same time safeguarding an equal degree of freedom
for all of his fellow mortals. If one man is to be absolutely free, then
another must become an absolute slave. And the relative nature of freedom
is true socially, economically, and politically. Freedom is the gift of
civilization made possible by the enforcement of LAW.
P.1490 - §5 Religion makes it spiritually possible to realize
the brotherhood of men, but it will require mankind government to regulate
the social, economic, and political problems associated with such a goal
of human happiness and efficiency.
P.1490 - §6 There shall be wars and rumors of wars--nation will
rise against nation--just as long as the world's political sovereignty
is divided up and unjustly held by a group of nation-states. England, Scotland,
and Wales were always fighting each other until they gave up their respective
sovereignties, reposing them in the United Kingdom.
P.1490 - §7 Another world war will teach the so-called sovereign
nations to form some sort of federation, thus creating the machinery for
preventing small wars, wars between the lesser nations. But global wars
will go on until the government of mankind is created. Global sovereignty
will prevent global wars--nothing else can.
P.1490 - §8 The forty-eight American free states live together
in peace. There are among the citizens of these forty-eight states all
of the various nationalities and races that live in the ever-warring nations
of Europe. These Americans represent almost all the religions and religious
sects and cults of the whole wide world, and yet here in North America
they live together in peace. And all this is made possible because these
forty-eight states have surrendered their sovereignty and have abandoned
all notions of the supposed rights of self-determination.
P.1490 - §9 It is not a question of armaments or disarmament.
Neither does the question of conscription or voluntary military service
enter into these problems of maintaining world-wide peace. If you take
every form of modern mechanical armaments and all types of explosives away
from strong nations, they will fight with fists, stones, and clubs as long
as they cling to their delusions of the divine right of national sovereignty.
P.1491 - §1 War is not man's great and terrible disease; war is
a symptom, a result. The real disease is the virus of national sovereignty.
P.1491 - §2 Urantia nations have not possessed real sovereignty;
they never have had a sovereignty which could protect them from the ravages
and devastations of world wars. In the creation of the global government
of mankind, the nations are not giving up sovereignty so much as they are
actually creating a real, bona fide, and lasting world sovereignty which
will henceforth be fully able to protect them from all war. Local affairs
will be handled by local governments; national affairs, by national governments;
international affairs will be administered by global government.
P.1491 - §3 World peace cannot be maintained by treaties, diplomacy,
foreign policies, alliances, balances of power, or any other type of makeshift
juggling with the sovereignties of nationalism. World law must come into
being and must be enforced by world government--the sovereignty of all
P.1491 - §4 The individual will enjoy far more liberty under world
government. Today, the citizens of the great powers are taxed, regulated,
and controlled almost oppressively, and much of this present interference
with individual liberties will vanish when the national governments are
willing to trustee their sovereignty as regards international affairs into
the hands of global government.
P.1491 - §5 Under global government the national groups will be
afforded a real opportunity to realize and enjoy the personal liberties
of genuine democracy. The fallacy of self-determination will be ended.
With global regulation of money and trade will come the new era of world-wide
peace. Soon may a global language evolve, and there will be at least some
hope of sometime having a global religion--or religions with a global viewpoint.
P.1491 - §6 Collective security will never afford peace until
the collectivity includes all mankind.
P.1491 - §7 The political sovereignty of representative mankind government will bring lasting peace on earth, and the spiritual brotherhood of man will forever insure good will among all men. And there is no other way whereby peace on earth and good will among men can be realized.
Many other quotes could be offered. Consider, for example, the discussion on the social value of war, page 785, or the discussion on Cultural Society, page 905.
