I cannot discuss these elements by being limited to the Urantia Papers. If that is a condition on my answer than I cannot answer you. I shall assume that I may bring the Bible into this discussion. I shall also use other material.

If you think you will find a passage in the Urantia Papers that will make your decision for you -- it ain't gonna happen.

You must face a critical element. We are being given the freedom to make our spiritual choices without direct instruction from above. The Revelators withheld information in order that they would not directly influence our decisions.

You must understand that element.

But they gave us enough information to come to understanding.

Page 602: The “devil” is none other than Caligastia, the deposed Planetary Prince of Urantia and a Son of the secondary order of Lanonandeks.

You can see that he has been deposed, but he has not been removed from the planet. This is where Steffani hangs her spiritual hat, believing that being "shorn" of all authority means removal from this world. Such view is clearly refuted by:

 

Page 610: Caligastia, your apostate Planetary Prince, is still free on Urantia to prosecute his nefarious designs, but he has absolutely no power to enter the minds of men, neither can he draw near to their souls to tempt or corrupt them unless they really desire to be cursed with his wicked presence.

 

We have been over these passages time and again. As I had mentioned, Jesus told us about those who did not know him or the Father. They were the ones who went seeking phenomena and other experiences. Those individuals really wish to be cursed by his wicked presence because they cannot discriminate between loyalty to God and loyalty to other Spirit Personalities. Unfortunately for them, they have no way to recognize that they are seeking his nefarious majesty. They are looking for thrill contact from the spirit world.

 

He will thrill them, alright. See below.

 

We all have been given that freedom. This is the key element in our decision process. This is a highly crucial element for Jesus to determine who are his people, and those who are willing to give themselves to those other Spirit Personalities.

 

2 Cor 4:3-4
And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled only to those who are perishing. In their case the god of this world has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the likeness of God.

 

Steffani was so strong to condemn me for referring to Caligastia as the god of this world. You can see how Paul used exactly this phrase to denote Caligastia. If he comes as a being of light, in great majesty, then we can understand why both Paul and I refer to him as the god of this world.

 

The following are all quotes from the Urantia Papers showing that these nefarious personalities are beings of brilliant light. I mean this as literal light, and not merely figurative designations of themselves.
 

LUCIFER was a brilliant primary Lanonandek Son of Nebadon.

 

Lucifer was a magnificent being, a brilliant personality; he stood next to the Most High Fathers of the constellations in the direct line of universe authority.

 

Lucifer first announced his plans to Satan, but it required several months to corrupt the mind of his able and brilliant associate.

 

The seraphic leader was spiritually blinded by the brilliant personality of Lucifer; his charming ways fascinated the lower orders of celestial beings. They simply could not comprehend that it was possible for such a dazzling personality to go wrong.

 

For three hundred thousand years Caligastia had been in charge of Urantia when Satan, Lucifer’s assistant, made one of his periodic inspection calls. And when Satan arrived on the planet, his appearance in no way resembled your caricatures of his nefarious majesty. He was, and still is, a Lanonandek Son of great brilliance. “And no marvel, for Satan himself is a brilliant creature of light.”

 

2 Cor 11:13-15
For such men are false apostles, deceitful workmen, disguising themselves as apostles of Christ. And no wonder, for
even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.

 

Although I could find no direct quote about the appearance of Caligastia, he shares the same brilliant display of light as his Lanonandek brothers. Those personal attributes have not been removed from him. His personal being has remained intact.

 

Allen Wolf described his experience of this brilliant light:

 

It felt like my spine, whole person, and being, was being infused from above, moment by eternal moment, with shooting, swirling, yellow-gold bright particle rays, of completely conscious, all-knowing, compassionate, communicating, living light! In that moment, however long I stood there in “normal” earth-time (I have no idea), I was directly connected to and part of everything . . . just as everything was equally connected to and part of me. The world and everything in it; life as a whole, both worldly and purely of the spirit . . . all without question, were One.

 

Awed like I’ve never been before, my whole body, completely straight and alert in the moment, to the sacred and eternal life-essence all around and in me, felt utterly alive, filled, and expanded five or six feet beyond

my physical body, in all directions. I was very soon shaking uncontrollably, and tears of joy were rolling down my face in the cold winter air.

 

But I also clearly felt this personal God-presence with me, somehow both within me and yet off to the side a bit of all this interconnecting, swirling, yellow gold living light . . . and I immediately recognized that there, staying with me, throughout my experience (however long it lasted - it felt like eternity!), was the familiar, loving, spirit-personality who had been communicating with me regularly for weeks now, with those clear, smiling messages of, “I’m coming!”

 

Up until this moment, I had only known this presence as one, which felt to me, like a being with vast understanding and advanced experience, representing some higher level of reality . . . or God. Now, in this moment, I realized clearly that this personal presence, most obviously to me, was that of a new, great spiritual Teacher of truth and of God, being sent to us all now directly from and by God, to help us world-wide in our search for greater understanding, for loving, compassionate living, and for spiritual unity.

 

It didn’t feel like the spirit-presence of Jesus, though close, or that of our Father or Mother, though also close. The personal presence was overwhelmingly filled with love, understanding, compassion and comfort, and with the very real power of direct and immediate knowledge of the universal truth and reality of God. My heightened spiritual awareness told me this was, indeed, a new and direct representative of God, a spiritual Teacher, uplifter and sustainer, for ALL of humanity.

 

I have given this lengthy quote so you can understand the power of Caligastia. He comes as God. You can see Allen's repeated references to him as God. Human beings who open themselves to him sense him as God. He is a brilliant being of light, spiritual light.

 

When Allen was infused with the spirit presence of Caligastia he felt that he was one with the universe.

 

You also can see the nature of the personal presence. It was overwhelming filled with love, understanding, compassion and comfort, and with the very real power of direct and immediate knowledge of the universal truth and reality of God. That is the way Caligastia presents himself. Those who communicate with him absolutely feel that he is God.

 

In his communications with Allen prior to this experience he stated repeatedly how he was soon coming.

 

His loving, definite, clearly communicated response to me, was: “I will be returning, as I promised, but not yet. In the meantime, I’m sending others in my stead. There will soon be an incarnated unanimity of spirit around the globe.” This clearly loving, spiritual presence said to me, over and over, regularly, day after day, in slightly different ways, yet always basically the same, “I’m coming! I’m coming to you all soon! In your time soon I’m coming!”

 

That Coming will be coincident with the Return of Jesus. It is soon upon us.

 

In now way would Allen ever betray this experience. He cannot. He lives with Caligastia as a High Spirit Being, and cannot deny that power. Many of those who have had similar experiences have the same loyalty to this majestic but nefarious being. My son-in-law, Scott Foerster, feels the same loyalty. He cannot deny the power of that Spirit Being. Perhaps this will help you understand the personal dilemma I am in.

 

I am now going to quote you a passage from the Bible that has been excised from our modern Bibles, but was contained in older versions of the Bible, perhaps 200 years ago.

 

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.'"

 

Unclean Spirits means those Spirits who visit themselves upon unsuspecting human beings. They are unclean because they enter the human mind. Angel do not invade the sanctity of the human mind.

 

The terrors are those that even now draw very close to us. Caligastia's agents, such as Allen Wolf, will go out in massive murder upon God's people. And they will think that they are doing a service for God.

 

P.1951 - . . . "And I am telling you about all this before I leave you in order that you may be so prepared for what is coming upon you that you will not stumble into serious error. . . . I warn you the hour draws near when they who kill you will think they are doing a service to God. And all of these things they will do to you and to those whom you lead into the kingdom of heaven because they do not know the Father.  . . . I am telling you in advance about these things so that, when your hour comes, as mine now has, you may be strengthened in the knowledge that all was known to me, and that my spirit shall be with you in all your sufferings for my sake and the gospel's. It was for this purpose that I have been talking so plainly to you from the very beginning. I have even warned you that a man's foes may be those of his own household. . .

Yes Ernest, there is judgment, of various types . . . some negative, not all of them. My judgment of what you say is positive . . . not that I agree with all your positions . . . but find them thought provoking, and study stimulating.

Now, a question. Caligastia was deposed as planetary prince of Urantia. In your interpretation, you say that doesn't mean he is imprisoned or unable to act and "raise hell" among us mortals. Others think differently. Could you refer me to the UB text that supports your point of view?

Thank you and may the moderator be gracious with you!
