The Urantia Book contains information which informs the reader that throughout the history of the evolution of the human race; much attention has been focused on the highest types of human beings coming together, with the end goal of uplifting the human race as a whole. Certain types of genetic material combining with other types of genetic material combining to come up with human beings who were better able to be vehicles of expression for the Thought Adjusters.
Paper 110.4.6 "For many thousands of years, so the records show, in each generation there have lived fewer and fewer beings who could function safely with self-acting Adjusters. This is an alarming picture, and the supervising personalities of Satania look with favor upon proposals of some of your more immediate supervisors who advocate the inauguration of measures designed to foster and conserve the higher spiritual types of the Urantia races."
The UB and the Bible contain some examples of God's "hand of Providence" has reached in to ensure that humans, working to further the gospel of Jesus, were not taken from the earth plane, by acts of nature or by the attempts of those who felt their hold on power was threatened.
Examples : Paper 77.8.12 refers to the New Testament account where "angel of the Lord" opened prison doors and released the early teachers of the gospel of Jesus. also mentioned is the fact that a secondary midwayer took Peter out of prison.
Another example as conveyed in Acts 27 verse 23 while Paul was being taken to Rome by ship, a storm threatens to wipe out all of those onboard...an angel appears to Paul and tells him that everyone will be saved but the ship will be destroyed. And in Acts chap 28 we read that after they are shipwrecked on an island and Paul gathers up some firewood a deadly viper bites Paul's hand. The other people around him think that Paul will drop dead from that bite but no harm comes to Paul. Paul was on a mission spreading the gospel of Jesus...and so Divine Intervention was used to facilitate that work; not because Paul was an important person, but because of the Importance of the mission that he was on.
And so here we have just a small glimpse, a few examples, of the "Hand of Providence" reaching down into the stream of life here on Earth...taking measures to conserve the lives of individuals who are working to improve life and bring a higher and deeper understanding of the Love of God.
There is simply not enough space on this thread on this forum to really reveal all of the examples of Providence...as they have occurred throughout the past two thousand years But I will leave off for now with one recent example;
on the morning September 11th 2001; there were approximately 20,000 people working in the twin towers in NY. On any other normal working day, there were 40,000 people working in those towers.
