Threads for New Transmissions / Tact and Finesse Presenting Father's Busness

    Jack, you may start. This is a time of the year when many family gatherings give members time to enjoy each other's company and catch up on their busy lives. There are many topics which cannot and will not be aired as to keep the peace. You all know the drill, but sometimes he can not help but bring certain topics to test the waters or just start a little drama when things are boring. Some feel the need to try one more time to get others to understand your opinions and point of view especially with something as important as the Magisterial Mission is to all.
    This is an area you must feel your way through with tack and finesse as to not get into heated shouting matches of who is right and who is wrong. At certain moments opportunities may present a good time to share some general knowledge and gauge the reaction. Read how others react and continue if interest is shown or maybe change the subject if conflict arises. The point is to always look for opportunities do the Father's Business if possible! Sometimes family members are the toughest, especially if you've already presented the Magisterial Mission and no announcement happened.
    This exercise will help you gauge how prepared you are to present facts and have a conversation with people about a subject of great importance to you and them. So test the waters, one toe at a time or just dive in. It will help you prepare for when the rubber does hit the road as you say. All for now. Later, Jack

Bravo Ron!   I have been reviewing the Time Line you prepared for us.   I read most of it before when it was updated in March 2016 and I am still overwhelmed by all the detail that is provided.   What a wonderful reference book it will be for all of us!   You have done an outstanding job and I am sorry to see you go as Editor in Chief.  

Mach's gut!

I have just previewed and read through the immense content headings  of this work, Ron and can hardly wait to read the entire work that you have done with the help of our Creator Son, Michael.of Nebadon. This is quite the remarkable and no doubt eventual Official Document for  Urantia.


I did  notice , almost immediately, the section on Jesus that you mentioned and am more than excited to get the translation in the universe language of our planet's new name which will mean "The Wonder of the Universe of Universes",   as well as the coming renaming of Satania, both of which has been indicated on several occasions

.
I am all a'flutter to be able to get to this!   I am almost trembling with joy, excitement and enthusiasm to read this work in one sitting.    You and your  work is incredible, exemplary, and an inspiration to us all.

Dear List,
I have completed the Time Line update through November 16, 2017 of my Time Line and include all of 2017 through 16 November at this link:
TIME LINE REVISED 2017 LINK:
https://app.box.com/s/ajjq62esqfdsqzzgpiz5f464ytnhhowm

Michael of Nebadon helped me select the prime events for as you know I normally update with all announcements during the year, but the years 2016 and 2017 are daunting in their detail and selection of events pared down to about a dozen or so that really made a difference to all concerned.

The Time Line is now running at 58 pages and can either be read or downloaded at the Box link I provided for you above.

There is some additional revelation in it you do not have in 2017 and you will easily see it as you read through the additions and little revisions I now include in the edited version for 2017 to date.  Cast your eyes at the bottom where there is a new listing on how and what Jesus intends in the near future for Urantia.  Thank you all for your interest and it will be revised one more time to include all of 2017 when we together see what actually happens to Urantia by year's end.
Ron Besser and with Michael's help, this time line will be published by the Urantia Publishing International when it is pared down and made more presentable for an actual book publication when that time comes.

MICHAEL OF NEBADON SPEAKS -
"I seldom speak in these terms, but Ron has managed to sequester the entire universe with this time line as he reports things long forgotten but so important to the divine missions on Urantia.  When he started it he saw nobody looking to preserve what was happening and now lauds the fact he had the foresight to play back some important announcements of the unfolding Teaching Mission and what followed it as it failed miserably among students of the Urantia Book (old) and many others who now think it was an anomaly too soon for what it had to do for Urantia.  Now we come to another parting where Ron is no longer in charge of writing it and I am in charge in presenting it to the world pretty much as he wrote it in earlier times and mostly as he wrote it in the present.  I speak now to all of you:

"The time to write is now.  You have a lot of history under your hands and feet living through this past period of uncertainty and waiting for things that never happened and most of it will be forgotten unless you write a sort of time line of your participation down and let Ron know if you complete one as it can be valuable as an annotation to Urantia Publishing International in some fortm later on.  We decide these things too Ron and you see them clearly as well as there is a fortune to be had by writing these things out as they happen much as Pepe started by reporting the London fire in the 17th century.  I almost forgot to inform all of you that I have requested Ron to return to our Counsel for Urantia in a day or two and you will hear him as he is to be reporting changes that affect all of you right from the horse's mouth.

"The Time Line for 2018 will be a joint enterprise for me and Ron and some of you as you should start recording a Journal or Diary for notes to a Time Line we will reconfigure for all the world at some point.  I now close with a prayer for all of you:

"May the Lord keep you, and may the Lord find you,

May we dine together with Jesus soon and see the world as he sees it too."

"I am Michael of Nebadon and that concludes my notes for now.  Thank you."

Transcription of Larry Gossett's Message from Michael of Nebadon on 16 November 2017.

"Good Morning,  This is MICHAEL of Nebadon, your Creator Son.   I come this morning in response to your request to give you a lesson about humor and how important it is to cultivate a sense of humor.    You know, many times, my children, we have talked about being in good cheer.   Experiencing joy in service to the Father and in your coming service to the Missions.  

"I want to tell you this morning, just briefly, how important it is for you to have this sense of humor;  This good will and cheer in your work.   For the times that come to Urantia are indeed severe.   The trials and tribulations will, of course, take up a lot of your time and energy.   If you can develop and cultivate this sense of humor, it will not only be to your benefit.   It will also be to the benefit of those that you help.   There is a tendency that many of you have to be overly serious.   Not that this work is not serious.   It will be very important for you to have a good sense of humor to do this work.

"You have all seen this and heard Ron Besser come to the point of nearly "cracking up" sometimes during the course of a recording and even in his writing.   I will tell all of you that this type of sense of humor is vitally important to your well-being and to the well-being of those you will come to help.  

"There will always be a lighter side to the coin.   This is so very important to be in good will, to be of good cheer, to find joy in service to the Father and to the Missions and to your fellow citizens on Urantia    It will take every ounce of dedication and will that you can muster up.   Having this sense of humor, as I said, is vitally important to the overall work that you will be responsible to do.   See this lighter side, find it and use it!   Let it be your ally for indeed it is.

"With our work with Ron, we so often just laugh, even to the point of a little silliness.   There is absolutely nothing wrong in that.   Because it will, without doubt, dispel much of the frustration, much of the problem and much of those things that can deplete your energies.   For there is nothing like a good laugh to uplift your spirits and Heart and Soul.  

"So I encourage you, my children, to cultivate a good balanced sense of humor, good will, and cheer and joy.   These are all positive things that you can use as you do this work yourself.   So I encourage you to develop this very valuable asset. For it is indeed an asset to you, to us, and to all of those that you will come to help on Urantia.

"This is MICHAEL.   I give you my Peace.   I give you my Love.   I invite you to be ever watchful.   Let joy and humor and good will be always at your side.   I bid you Good Day."

A lesson and reminder from Michael about the importance of maintaining a good sense of humor  in the coming days of trials for Urantia.   LarryG




https://app.box.com/s/b9v7iv3i7q8p2qe59zlieh90nxhn4jov


After I took this reception, I began thinking about what Michael shared with us and remembered this passage from our Urantia Book and I want to add it to this important message since having a well balanced sense of humor plays such an important part and role in our upcoming service.   It certainly seems quite true as these stressful times  surely come upon all on this world that at times "laughter is the best medicine".... LarryG




"48.4.1 Joyful mirth and the smile-equivalent are as universal as music. There is a morontial and a spiritual equivalent of mirth and laughter. The ascendant life is about equally divided between work and play - freedom from assignment.
48.4.12 Most of us have come up through lower stages of existence or through progressive levels of our orders, and it is refreshing and in a measure amusing to look back upon certain episodes of our early experience. There is a restfulness in the contemplation of that which is old to one's order, and which lingers as a memory possession of the mind. The future signifies struggle and advancement; it bespeaks work, effort, and achievement; but the past savors of things already mastered and achieved; contemplation of the past permits of relaxation and such a carefree review as to provoke spirit mirth and a morontia state of mind verging on merriment.
48.4.17 The higher the mortal species, the greater the stress and the greater the capacity for humor as well as the necessity for it. In the spirit world the opposite is true: The higher we ascend, the less the need for the diversions of reversion experiences. But proceeding down the scale of spirit life from Paradise to the seraphic hosts, there is an increasing need for the mission of mirth and the ministry of merriment. Those beings who most need the refreshment of periodic reversion to the intellectual status of previous experiences are the higher types of the human species, the morontians, angels, and the Material Sons, together with all similar types of personality.
48.4.20 The principles of Urantian play life are philosophically sound and continue to apply on up through your ascending life, through the circuits of Havona to the eternal shores of Paradise. As ascendant beings you are in possession of personal memories of all former and lower existences, and without such identity memories of the past there would be no basis for the humor of the present, either mortal laughter or morontia mirth. It is this recalling of past experiences that provides the basis for present diversion and amusement. And so you will enjoy the celestial equivalents of your earthly humor all the way up through your long morontia, and then increasingly spiritual, careers. And that part of God (the Adjuster) which becomes an eternal part of the personality of an ascendant mortal contributes the overtones of divinity to the joyous expressions, even spiritual laughter, of the ascending creatures of time and space."

Editorials From Man & Spirit / Re: CERTITUDE: ITS GIFT
« Last post by LarryG on November 16, 2017, 07:23:32 AM »
Ron, as you responded :

Ron, I will gladly delete my post.  I was not meaning to make it more confusing which is why I inserted the date of the writing, as the late 1800's.      Please let me know if I should delete it....LarryG

No Larry, let it stand, as of now it serves as a lesson on other views of compossibility that do not fit the use of the word in the Urantia Book, and you will find other words in the Urantia Book like the word "existential" that is not used as we use it today on social sites or the Internet at all, and I lament we all have to be so careful to know when you are in the Urantia Book Room speak using its terms and definitions, but stay away from erroneous definitions in social media and cable television.   They use them according to their incoherent views of time and space.



Ron


You are right, Ron, this is  a valuable lesson to learn.   I will, in the future. be more carful and watchful.   It is interesting to me since,  now,  I find the entire subject of linguistics,  semantics,  and etymology so very interesting.   When I first got my Urantia Book, in the mid 70's, I remember that  I always had a dictionary right beside me as I read since I had to look up so many word definitions as I was reading.   Sometimes, even now, I have to  look up definitions to the definitions!....lol.... When we were informed, especially concerning receptions, that Spirit is somewhat limited in how and what they can transmit to us since they have to rely upon and work with us at the levels where we are, I was and still am, a bit regretful that my vocabulary is not what I now wish it were.  Even though I wasn't a particularly fastidious student and frankly a bit on the lazy side with "book learnin",  English was always fascinating to me and I was especially fond of diagraming sentences.   anyway.. bla... bla... bla... I am rambling...The point being that in the future I will be more careful to not confuse, confound and complicate issues and definitions  and better stay within the framework of our Urantia Book.   Thanks Ron, as always, for your patient guidance... and now back to the drawing board.

I found your ending note to be especially poignant, filled with love and affection  for all of Spirit as they find the best ways to sometimes deal with all of us as  you wrote:


Ron
"Note:  I am heavily dependent on these views from Saint Paul who stood by my side while I wrote this; from Michael of Nebadon who chastised me first and later saw the quote from Larry was misleading and one learns nothing from it; and from Mother Spirit and Peter the Apostle of Rome, who watched me stick my toe in the water over an obscure philosopher that Leibniz turns out to be in these days.  I also wish to thank my Adjuster for keeping me out of the wrong fields to pursue the truth which is so easy for me to do and then get lost on articles like this and have to be rescued by the Father to save face.  My thanks to my Life Guards always. Ron"
