THE VEIL HAS BEEN TORN ASIDE
As given to Judy Tuttle:
The veil has been torn aside. It is no longer
the advent of the Antichrist. He is here, now, amongst you,
sitting gleefully upon his throne. It is time for the Sons of God to
come together. This period will be very intense , but short, ending in
the year 2000. You will witness *evil* the likes of which your mind
could never possibly conceive. It is not necessary to make physical
preparation. You will be surrounded by a cloak of spiritual tranquility
and love. Fear not! This has been your purpose. You have our love
and protection. "We will foster and conserve the higher spiritual types."
I understand the veil as that lack of perception in which God held his
people for 2,000 years. It was necessary to unfolding planetary destiny
that man not jeopardize God's plan. Therefore, although he made these events
known to us in various historic revelations, he did not make them discernible
to us. Only within the past few years has this revelation been opened to
Personally, I did not begin to understand these episodes until around
1990. Although I was aware of the dangers of Caligastia from my fundamentalist
childhood, until now I did not perceive how he would come into power. The
several revelations in the Bible were an uncoordinated mixture of elements
which I could not properly put together. Then it began to slowly dawn on
me how this was going to unfold. Members of the local Urantia groups in
the Baltimore-Washington area watched my awareness develop and eventually
concluded I had been carried away with my intensity. Urantians such as
Preston Thomas, Stevie Shaefer, Buddy Roogow, Ellen Walker and others can
testify to this personal development.
Hence, I can personally witness to the manner in which the veil has
been torn aside.
The key is captured in one simple phrase, "Spirit Entry Into Human Mind."
Until I had clarified this concept I do not believe another human mortal
had grasped the consequence of such spiritual transactions. Two thousand
years of Christianity, and forty years of the Urantia community, failed
to capture the mechanism by which Caligastia can wreck his havoc.
Numerous varied and assorted interpretations of the biblical material
were offered by Christians over the centuries. They still struggle, assigning
the revelation episodes to a malevolent personality who takes on mortal
form, who "sits on a throne in the Temple" bringing world dictatorship,
who uses the number 666 for his identification, and so on, and so on. Most
conspiracy theories are woven around such concept, including the use of
the United Nations to rule the world.
These interpretations are all "political" in that they assume this evil
personality will take up an earthly throne, and assume world political,
as well as evil spiritual rule.
The basis for this view is found in remarks Paul made in 2 Thessalonians
2:1-12 but, through mistranslation, this passage has totally befuddled
Christian understanding. I shall discuss this problem in depth in this
series of posts.
Now that God has opened revelation we can find a different view. This
crucial difference is why I am so adamantly opposed to wild and imaginative
The coming terror will not be political. It will be spiritual.
Before continuing discussion I should point out some of the elements
which affect our assessments.
As far as we can determine, the coming persecutions will take place
under a functional social environment. The social circumstances will not
deteriorate to rampant police or military slaughter. The slaughter will
come from Caligastia's agents, operating under his spirit control, because
they gave themselves to him. Society continues, and most citizen's accept
How these operations will take place within a functional society is
unknown to me. Why would society tolerate such activities? Does a new-age
President also become part of that cadre, issuing decrees which permit
them to go about their deadly work? I do not know. These details are unrevealed.
We also do not know if economic circumstances may deteriorate to the
point that dictatorial imposition will be necessary by national governments
to maintain social order. Such imposition is suggested by John's Revelation,
in Chapter 13, and the description of a "small beast" with gentle appearance
but which wields great power. The corrupt description suggests an image
of computers. As I showed in other posts, the number 666 already is used
universally as the UPC, the Universal Product Code, and we all are subject
to that computer tool when we buy and sell. The other feature of computer
social control is the Social Security, or Coded Card, identification now
used well nigh universally around the world to coordinate and centralize
information for governments and institutions. We cannot buy or sell without
such number. Other than this short piece in John's Revelation we have no
evidence for dictatorial social control. John may not have intended more
than to describe the secular and godless economic and government control
through computers under which we all now operate, even though his images
carry sinister portent.
I shall now quote from a text which is not found in any modern edition
of the Bible, but which is found in ancient manuscripts. In centuries past
this passage was included in Bible printings, but in the past two centuries
this passage has been excised from the text.
Mark 16: (14-15) And they excused themselves, saying that this age of lawlessness and unbelief is under Satan, who, through the agency of unclean spirits, does not allow the true power of God to be apprehended. Wherefore, they said to Christ, 'reveal now Thy righteousness.' And Christ said to them, 'The limit of the years of Satan's authority has been fulfilled, but other terrors draw near, and I am delivered up of death on behalf of those that have sinned, that they may be turned to the truth and sin no more, so that they may inherit the spiritual and incorruptible glory of righteousness in heaven.'
The New Oxford Annotated (RSV) Bible, 1973, makes the remark
that ". . . a few authorities insert additional material after verse
14," but does not quote the text.
Four reasons exist for this not being included in modern Bibles.
First, the text does not appear in the most ancient manuscripts; it
appears in later manuscripts.
Second, the character of the writing appears expository, as later Christian
commentary, not as something that was part of the original Mark gospel.
Third, the passage is highly disturbing; it makes specific assignment
of the activities of the Devil. That assignment is in the sordid practices
of spiritualism and spiritism, the agency of unclean spirits. The spirits
are unclean (sordid) because they enter human mind. Modern men are unwilling
to accept that evil spirit personalities might work through human mind.
Four, confusion exists on the role of "Satan." If his authority has
been "fulfilled," how can he be connected to "other terrors" which draw
This passage, because of its relegation to obscurity, was a key element
in maintaining the veil God placed upon his revelations.
This text is quoted in the International Critical Commentary
under the section dealing with John 16:11. It also appears in the exhaustive
critical edition of The Greek New Testament by Kurt Aland, Matthew
Black, Carlo Martini, Bruce Metzgar, and Allen Wikgren, published by the
United Bible Societies, 1968, who included reference to all Greek manuscripts
known to that date.
The commentator in ICC goes on to remark that:
"The impending 'terrors' may be the persecutions foretold in John
Indeed, that is exactly what is going on.
The text in John, runs as follows:
2 They will put you out of the synagogues; indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God.
3 And they will do this because they have not known the Father, nor me.
4 But I have said these things to you, that when their hour comes
you may remember that I told you of them. I did not say these things to
you from the beginning, because I was with you.
The parallel text in the Urantia Papers, offering the same warning,
may be found on page 1951.
Invariably, Christians believe this passage refers to early Christian
persecutions. The phrase "put you out of the synagogues" suggests Jewish
persecutions. No Christian will assign this to Roman persecutions because
the statement is made that these malevolent forces are "offering service
to God." The pagan Romans would not be offering service to "God." Only
the Jews would have brought persecutions to offer their service to God
is suppressing the new sect.
As I show on my web site, this assignment to Jewish persecution is also
fallacious. The ferocious persecutions against the new sect were conducted
by Paul, but he barely started when Jesus appeared to him on the road to
Damascus, and terminated that activity. His conversion turned him directly
opposite. He became a proponent of the new belief, rather than its persecutor.
This appearance by Jesus not only stopped Paul dead in his tracks; it
also stifled further efforts by the Jewish authorities to suppress the
new sect. Paul was their fair-haired boy, a young man when he ordered the
stoning of Stephen, Acts 7:58. Immediately thereafter Paul sought and was
granted letters of authority to round up members of the new sect who had
scattered to various places, Acts 9:2, 11:19. But the extraordinary experience
of Paul scared the living daylights out of Jewish authorities. Many of
the Sanhedrin then came to fear they might be in rebellion against God.
Unfortunately, discussion of these matters are not included in Luke's text
in Acts. Also, it appears that later Christians, working under the burden
that the biblical text was speaking of early Jewish persecutions, did not
rigorously examine the consequences of Paul's conversion. That aftermath
must be deduced from the unfolding of events.
We should remember that the apostles continued to live in Jerusalem,
worshiping the new way, preaching and teaching, directly under the nose
of Jewish authorities. Paul later visited with them in Jerusalem, Acts
15:2-4. A man named Philip openly proselytized in Caesarea, with a group
of disciples, Acts 21. Thus, the Jewish persecutions were limited to the
earliest days and were later discontinued. After the destruction of Jerusalem
in 70 AD there was no Sanhedrin, nor were there Jewish authorities to bring
such persecutions. Only here and there, scattered in other countries, were
a few Christians persecuted by Jews. They became the "martyrs" of such
famous reputation. But on the whole, Jewish persecutions were not organized
and were not widespread.
The intensity of the historic persecutions described in the book of
Acts, including Paul's remarks, must be weighed in the light of this practical
Could the remarks of Jesus in John 16:2 then apply to those persecutions,
or did Jesus intend some other episode in world destiny? Did the Catholic
Inquisition fit this description? Did other Christian persecutions?
Jesus spoke of a unique episode that derived from "Satan." Historic
religious persecutions did not fulfill this prophecy.
The agency of the coming terror is through Unclean Spirits.
