In the Urantia Papers we are given considerable information on Seraphic Transports. In Paper 39 four different sections describe these angels: Superior Seraphim, Supervisor Seraphim, Administrator Seraphim, and Planetary Helpers. Other passages exist.

We also have passages in the Bible that describe these angels.

In an effort to bring some clarification I will briefly mention some details from each of these.

The following quotes are from Paper 39.

In Satania, your system, they carry passengers back and forth from Jerusem and otherwise serve as interplanetary transporters.

Human beings have sometimes been permitted to observe seraphim that were being prepared for transport service, and the traditions of these experiences have largely determined the Urantian concept of angels.


 

 

And now, under the influence of the transformers and the transmitters, a strange metamorphosis begins as the seraphim is made ready to swing into the energy currents of the universe circuits. To outward appearance the seraphim grows pointed at both extremities and becomes so enshrouded in a queer light of amber hue that very soon it is impossible to distinguish the enseraphimed personality. By this time the transport seraphim has become an almost transparent, vibrating, torpedo-shaped outline of glistening luminosity.

The key words are "grows pointed at both extremities," and "torpedo-shaped outline."

While the preceding picture does not emphasize the torpedo shape the following picture makes this more evident.

Many times the extreme thinness of the transports shows how they differ in form. We would assign the first image as a "planetary helper" and these latter two to different type seraphim.

To be continued . . .
