JR I agree with you regarding Dec 21, 2012. What has been promoted, said and written re: end of the world, predictions, etc.. does not make sense with what has been revealed in the Urantia Book. Way too much attention has been directed to this tiny orb spinning way out here on the edge of the universe.
So, this brings up the question; why all of this special attention on Urantia and the system of Satania ? Is it because because of the huge upheavel and damage that was caused by the rebellion ?
Paper 45:2.1 "The Lucifer rebellion in the system of Satania was the last and the most widespread of all" (of the 3 systems that rebelled in Nebadon)
Is it possible that Urantia suffered the most damage, out of all of the other inhabited worlds in Satania ?
Is this a possible answer to why the system of Satania and the the planet Urantia are receiving this special attention ?
This reminds me of the parable in the Bible (I can't find reference to it in the UB) the one where Jesus tells about a shepherd and his flock and of one of the sheep going astray...getting lost. And of how the shepherd goes out and searches for that one lost sheep.
This kind of gives the impression of why Michael came to this world. Urantia was (is) that lost sheep., I say "was" in refernce to UB readers, and "is" in regards to all of those humans who are still wandering around..searching for their connection to "The Spirit of God"
Getting back to the effects that the rebellion had on Urantia; Paper 93 gives us some insight as to just how bad it was.
93:1.1 "Revealed truth was threatened with extinction during the millenniums which followed the miscarriage of the Adamic mission on Urantia." (this 'miscarriage of the Adamic mission' was connected back to the Lucifer rebellion)
So this is where Machiventa made his emergency appearance on Urantia to keep the torch of "Truth" alive until Michael's visit nearly 2,000 years later.
So we have an Emergency Son Melchizidek come to Urantia. Then we have the Creator Son Michael come to Urantia.
One would almost be convinced that those two visitations should swing things around. Get human civilization firmly on the road...pointed toward a peaceful future. But no. Not so fast. 1,920 to 1,941 years after Jesus arrived, a revelation entitled the "Urantia Papers" was delivered to this planet (meant to be published as The Urantia Book in 1955 AD) which has included within it's second last paper these words:
Paper 195:8.5 "......But beware! this godless philosophy of human society will lead only to unrest, animosity, unhappiness, war and world wide disaster. "
Paper 195:8.13 " The complete secularization of science, education, industry, and society can only lead to disaster. During the first third of the twentieth century Urantians killed more human beings than were killed during the whole of the Christian dispensation up to that time. And this is only the beginning of the dire harvest of materialization and secularism; still more terrible destruction is yet to come."
Do we face a doom and gloom future ? NO ! We don't.. The human race shall make it through whatever is ahead of us. We have very powerful allies from the highest places in this Universe here to help us make it through whatever happens.
And a special contingency plan has been put in place to help. See Paper 114:7 "The Reserve Corps of Destiny"
And most importantly of all: The Creator Son of Nebadon has a personal stake in our future...the Future of Urantia, a Special Planet in the Universe of Nebadon.
And look at how our "celestial friends" wrapped up this beautiful document: "The Urantia Book"
Paper 196 "The Faith of Jesus"
