KNOWLEDGE ABOUT GOD AS TOLD BY THE URANTIA BOOK
Source: Papers of Part-I of the Urantia Book
According to the Urantia Book, God is the First Source and Centre responsible for the creation of everything physical and non-physical (or spiritual), visible and invisible, living and non-living, the space and energy in the universes and He has no beginning or end. He is beyond time and space, Eternal and Infinite. He has no shape or body in the material sense, but is Infinite Spirit Power Personality who is the source of Intelligence and Thought. He affected the Creation of Spirit Powers similar to Him before the Creation of the physical universes and through them He caused the creation of other Spirit Power Personalities responsible for further activities of creation before and after time and space came into existence.
There are many orders of divine personalities, the higher orders being higher in power and perfection. Those orders of being that came into existence before the physical universes were created can be considered as eternal spirit power personalities similar to God, the First Source and Centre.
The Urantia Book reveals the details and the functions of the various orders of divine personalities and acknowledges the existence of other personalities not revealed in the book. Some personalities are single entities while many others came into existence in large but finite numbers and there are many divine orders whose numbers increase as and when need arises.
The names of the divine powers are immaterial and they are known in different names in different languages, but we should be in a position to identify them conceptually by whatever nomenclature we use to identify them. The Book identifies the divine personalities by nomenclature already in use in our languages wherever such concepts exist and identify others by coined nomenclature.
The First three Sources of Divine Powers are equals though functionally different and can be called the Trinity Gods. The Divine Personalities that constitute the Trinity are:
The Universal Father - the First Source and Centre and the First Person of Trinity
The Eternal Son – the Second Source and Centre and the Second Person of Trinity
The Infinite Spirit- the Third Source and Centre and the Third Person of Trinity
The Trinity Personalities are single entities.
The following are some quotes from the Urantia Book Papers about the above Divine Personalities of of the Universal Father God:
“The Universal Father is the God of all creation, the First Source and Center of all things and beings. First think of God as a creator, then as a controller, and lastly as an infinite upholder. The truth about the Universal Father had begun to dawn upon mankind when the prophet said:
"You, God, are alone; there is none beside you. You have created the heaven and the heaven of heavens, with all their hosts; you preserve and control them. By the Sons of God were the universes made. The Creator covers himself with light as with a garment and stretches out the heavens as a curtain.
" Only the concept of the Universal Father--one God in the place of many gods--enabled mortal man to comprehend the Father as divine creator and infinite controller.”“Of all the names by which God the Father is known throughout the universes, those which designate him as the First Source and the
"The First Father is known by various names in different universes and in different sectors of the same universe. The names which the creature assigns to the Creator are much dependent on the creature's concept of the Creator."
"The First Source and
[The first part of Urantia Book contains detailed papers describing the attributes and characters of the three personalities that comprise the Trinity God. The papers are quite elaborate and may need much time and patience to understand as the divine authors put it " God is not comprehensible to the limted intelligence of mortal man". Yet the divine revelators are trying to make it drive home for us. To read the whole of the papers online use the link given in this site's Home Page]
