In that day the Jews will “come unto Christ.” Every knee will bow and ever tongue confess.”
Is the below, from the Book of Mormon, saying the gentiles, having the charge to bring truth to the remnant of Israel, may default? And, if so, that the “fullness will be taken from them?”
Is it possible that the “greater things” as promised in the Book of Mormon, were withheld from the LDS Church because of such default? The Urantia Book does contain all the components as promised – the “greater mysteries of the universe.” It is a mystery this day ‘where’ the Urantia Book came from. No church or organized religion claims authorship.
One thing quite certain, the Urantia Papers did not come through the LDS channels. Most Mormons discount its authenticity asserting that it ‘must’ come through the “priesthood line of authority.” Many believe it is a “trick,” a deception. In light of this premise, consider the following Book of Mormon passages.
The Book of Mormon has much light to shed on this whole topic:
2 Nephi 16:
7 Behold, because of their belief in me, saith the Father, and because of the unbelief of you, O house of Israel, in the latter day shall the truth come unto the Gentiles, that the fulness of these things shall be made known unto them.
10 And thus commandeth the Father that I should say unto you: At that day when the Gentiles shall sin against my gospel, and shall reject the fulness of my gospel, and shall be lifted up in the pride of their hearts above all nations, and above all the people of the whole earth, and shall be filled with all manner of lyings, and of deceits, and of mischiefs, and all manner of hypocrisy, and murders, and priestcrafts, and whoredoms, and of secret abominations; and if they shall do all those things, and shall reject the fulness of my gospel, behold, saith the Father, I will bring the fulness of my gospel from among them.
In discussion with active LDS advocates, it is surely asserted that those ‘Gentiles’ noted above are those NOT of the LDS Church. However, in scrutiny of verse 10 in particular, it can be easily argued that, in essence, ‘if the Church refuses or “rejects the fullness of my gospel” (including the “greater revelation of truth” contained in the Urantia Book) then the Lord will “bring the fullness of my gospel from among them.”
And, in 3rd Ne. 20, among many other LDS scriptural passages, the LDS student is strongly admonished that the “words of Isaiah are of great importance to those of the ‘last days.” Therefore, what is Isaiah’s urgent message to today’s truth-seeker?
Does the below refer to the present LDS believer and Church … or of another people? It is possible, or probable, that the Jewish people will yet wholeheartedly ascribe to the teachings of the Urantia Papers, which gives a full history and clear reasoning of their 4000 year plight.
But will Christianity, including the LDS Church, reject the 2097 page Urantia Papers?
For the most part, in doing a Google search, traditional Christian religions cry out “it is of the devil.” However, the jury is still out with Mormonism … the most that can be Google-found is “no comment” when the LDS officials are asked about the Urantia Book.
It is clear from below that the “remnant of Israel” upon this land (the Jews, or, those of Abraham’s descent) will become believers of Jesus Christ, of whom their forefathers crucified 2000 years ago. Especially, verse 28 is blatant that“when they shall have received the fulness of my gospel, then if they shall harden their hearts against me I will return their iniquities upon their own heads”
- 3 Nephi 20:11
11 Ye remember that I spake unto you, and said that when the words of Isaiah should be fulfilled—behold they are written, ye have them before you, therefore search them
21 And it shall come to pass that I will establish my people, O house of Israel.
22 And behold, this people will I establish in this land, unto the fulfilling of the covenant which I made with your father Jacob; and it shall be a New Jerusalem. And the powers of heaven shall be in the midst of this people; yea, even I will be in the midst of you.
27 And after that ye were blessed then fulfilleth the Father the covenant which he made with Abraham, saying: In thy seed shall all the kindreds of the earth be blessed—unto the pouring out of the Holy Ghost through me upon the Gentiles, which blessing upon the Gentiles shall make them mighty above all, unto the scattering of my people, O house of Israel.
28 And they shall be a scourge unto the people of this land. Nevertheless, when they shall have received the fulness of my gospel, then if they shall harden their hearts against me I will return their iniquities upon their own heads, saith the Father.
29 And I will remember the covenant which I have made with my people; and I have covenanted with them that I would gather them together in mine own due time, that I would give unto them again the land of their fathers for their inheritance, which is the land of Jerusalem, which is the promised land unto them forever, saith the Father.
30 And it shall come to pass that the time cometh, when the fulness of my gospel shall be preached unto them;
31 And they shall believe in me, that I am Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and shall pray unto the Father in my name.
Here is an excellent website that has opened the door to the descendants of Abraham, both Jew and all Palestinians regarding the Fifth Epochal Revelation to our world.
Now could surely be considered the time of times. The prophets and wise of the ages have looked to our day with anticipation and excitement. As most people of today know, there is a plethora of prophecies, ranging from the Hopi Indians and Azteks, to Nostradamus—that 2012 is the time of times–the fulness of time. The end of something and beginning of new and Epochal.
In consideration of our enlightenment these past 100 years, culminating in today’s space-age, and, our nigh-instant global intercommunication, there is compelling evidence of a “new earth.”
Perhaps the “new heaven” is the next step to come–our inter-universal (neighboring sister inhabited planets) communications. The Urantia Papers reveal that once the “quarantine” is lifted on our world, we would once again enjoy and benefit from “inter-planetary communication.”
But ere long, the adjudication of Lucifer and his associates will restore the Satania system to the Norlatiadek constellation, and subsequently, Urantia and the other isolated spheres will be restored to the Satania circuits, and again will such worlds enjoy the privileges of interplanetary communication and intersystem communion. (Urantia Book Paper 46)
The Urantia Papers clearly asserts that it is the “5th epochal event” to occur in our Earth’s history. Notably:
1) The advent of the Planetary Prince, approximately 500,000 years ago. Who approx. 250,000 years ago, aligned with Lucifer regime. Our world, and 36 other inhabited worlds in our System of Satania, became “isolated” and the “circuits were severed’ to the rest of our Universe family in an effort to control the outspread of the “rebellion.”
2) Adam and Eve’s mission to the Garden of Eden, surrounded by the evolutionary tribes of earth—particularly the “Nodites” as noted in the Bible. This was a “2nd default.” The crafty Lucifer and his associate Satan, seduced Eve. Adam joined in the ploy so as to not be separated from his mate, and hence Urantia suffers a ‘double default.’
3) This Third Epochal Revelation to mankind: Because of the double-default and Urantia’s (Earth’s) dire circumstance, the very Creator himself, Michael of Nebadon, made the decision to ‘become what he has created—mortal man—on our pathetic isolated world. One of the Universe Melchizedek Order, Machiventa Melchizedek, mysteriously appeared as a mortal man, during the days of Abraham, and began the “One God to come” campaign.
4) The very ‘fulfillment’ of the 3rd epochal announcement became the Epoch # 4 — Michael of Nebadon became the Christ-child “son of man” as “Jesus of Nazareth (Yeshua ben Joseph). For the most part Jesus’ mission was not as hoped. He was rejected and brutally murdered. Yet he promised to not leave us alone (Spirit of Truth was sent), and, promised to personally return to finish what what cut short. The ‘fullness’ of his gospel, to another generation, was promised.
5) The coming forth of the “Fullness.” The Urantia Book asserts it ‘is’ that “Fifth Epochal Revelation to mankind.” After almost 1800 years of “dark ages” … there arose a fervor, especially in America, regarding a break from forced religion. There arose several “protestant” movements and new “isms.”
Mormonism being one such “protestant” religion, is/was quite peculiar in that it advocated more ‘word from God’ than just “the Bible.”
One might say Mormonism was a part of the beginning of the 5th Epochal Revelation. A “lesser portion” of the fullness came forward in the early 1830’s (the Book of Mormon) loaded with promises of the “greater portion to come.” History these past 180 years clearly reveals the persecuting results to those daring to claim ANY other record other than “the Bible.”
The Urantia Book revelation wouldn’t have had a chance of taking root – given what happened to those 1830’s Mormon believers in the “lesser portion.”
The Book of Mormon itself contained nothing new from the Old/New Testament … it was literally just ‘another accounting’ of Jesus’s tenure on our planet. But, for those who dared to espouse the new “Mormon Bible,” all hell broke loose. The so-called Christian reformed churches, including the political leaders of New York, Ohio, Missouri and Illinois, put a literal persecutionary kibosh on the “fullness to come” which was to contain: the hidden mysteries of the universe, the full truth of who we are, our history, our relation to the rest of the Universe, and to our Creator Paradise Parents.
Is the time ripe, now, for that “greater record” to come forth on the world-stage? Surely, it CAN, and without an onslaught of reprisal as was evidenced by the 19th centry Mormons.
One might say the Mormon’s, from about 1830 through 1860, took the blows from Christian intolerance for daring to believe in the “other than Bible.” Today’s Urantia Book (and Book of Mormon) student can rest assured he/she is not going to be burned out of his home and driven from his community.
Jesus once said, “and in that day every knee shall bow and every tongue confess.” With the below compelling scriptural evidence, what is it then, that would cause “every knee to bow.”
23 I have sworn by myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.
11 For it is written, As I live, saith the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
·Doctrine and Covenants 76:110
110 And heard the voice of the Lord saying: These all shall bow the knee, and every tongue shall confess to him who sits upon the throne forever and ever;
·Doctrine and Covenants 88:104
104 And this shall be the sound of his trump, saying to all people, both in heaven and in earth, and that are under the earth—for every ear shall hear it, and every knee shall bow, and every tongue shall confess, while they hear the sound of the trump, saying: Fear God, and give glory to him who sitteth upon the throne, forever and ever; for the hour of his judgment is come.
31 Yea, every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess before him. Yea, even at the last day, when all men shall stand to be judged of him, then shall they confess that he is God; then shall they confess, who live without God in the world, that the judgment of an everlasting punishment is just upon them; and they shall quake, and tremble, and shrink beneath the glance of his all-searching eye.
