boom, do you have a passage to support this?
TUB does not say that there will never be another rebellion. Which is why Thurston's claim that evil will end when everyone looses sympathy for it is ludicrous. What TUB does say is that Michael now has the authority to immediately squelch any future rebellion, "summarily and effectively". Summarily means in a manner without the customary formalities.
134:8.9 On an afternoon in late summer, amid the trees and in the silence of nature, Michael of Nebadon won the unquestioned sovereignty of his universe. On that day he completed the task set for Creator Sons to live to the full the incarnated life in the likeness of mortal flesh on the evolutionary worlds of time and space. The universe announcement of this momentous achievement was not made until the day of his baptism, months afterward, but it all really took place that day on the mountain. And when Jesus came down from his sojourn on Mount Hermon, the Lucifer rebellionin Satania and the Caligastia secession on Urantia were virtually settled. Jesus had paid the last price required of him to attain the sovereignty of his universe, which in itself regulates the status of all rebels and determines that all such future upheavals (if they ever occur) may be dealt with summarily and effectively. Accordingly, it may be seen that the so-called “great temptation” of Jesus took place sometime before his baptism and not just after that event.
For me, the next thing I'd do, was look up info on the subject, and thus ran across biblical folks saying that it's fallen angels, so the next thing I do, is come here to this forum, to see your thoughts.
I just reread this part of marisa33's post and I think I'm beginning to get a glimpse of the alleged UFO/TUB connection. So, it's the fallen angel theory that connects UFO's to the Lucifer Rebellion then? Hmmmmm. Now that's a really strange twist of a hair's turning.
All of the angels involved in the rebellion are still detained.
53:9.1 Early in the days of the Lucifer rebellion, salvation was offered all rebels by Michael. To all who would show proof of sincere repentance, he offered, upon his attainment of complete universe sovereignty, forgiveness and reinstatement in some form of universe service. None of the leaders accepted this merciful proffer. But thousands of the angels and the lower orders of celestial beings, including hundreds of the Material Sons and Daughters, accepted the mercy proclaimed by the Panoptians and were given rehabilitation at the time of Jesus’ resurrection nineteen hundred years ago. These beings have since been transferred to the Father’s world of Jerusem, where they must be held, technically, until the Uversa courts hand down a decision in the matter of Gabriel vs. Lucifer. But no one doubts that, when the annihilation verdict is issued, these repentant and salvaged personalities will be exempted from the decree of extinction. These probationary souls now labor with the Panoptians in the work of caring for the Father’s world.
But here is the best evidence that no new angels have fallen:
53:9.5 Since Michael’s final bestowal no one in all Satania has desired to go to the prison worlds to minister to the interned rebels. And no more beings have been won to the deceiver’s cause. For nineteen hundred years the status has been unchanged.
Of course, skeptics and fearmongers might want to claim that this is not the case today, especially if the Lucifer Trial is over (which is something we cannot know), but given Michael's sovereignty and ability to deal with rebels summarily, it seems highly unlikely that such a thing, even if it did happen, would be allowed by our loving leader. He certainly would not allow any such disloyalty to impact a single soul. Not to mention the absolutely ludicrous idea that alien fallen angels would need a spacecraft. The whole thing sounds like a made for TV scary shaman show. It's not just poppycock, it's poopy-crock.
And while I'm on the subject of poopy-crock, when was the decision made that it's okay to talk about channeling on this forum? I have an enormous amount to say on the subject but have refrained from bringing it up because I thought it was against the rules. Have things changed around here? Am I free to bring up some history, like from the beginning of the human race, that illustrates why people are so drawn to it?
