A local universe is the handiwork of a Creator Son of the Paradise order of Michael. It comprises one hundred constellations, each embracing one hundred systems of inhabited worlds. Each system will eventually contain approximately one thousand inhabited spheres.
These universes of time and space are all evolutionary. The creative plan of the Paradise Michaels always proceeds along the path of gradual evolvement and progressive development of the physical, intellectual, and spiritual natures and capacities of the manifold creatures who inhabit the varied orders of spheres comprising such a local universe.
Urantia belongs to a local universe whose sovereign is the God-man of Nebadon, Jesus of Nazareth and Michael of Salvington. And all of Michael’s plans for this local universe were fully approved by the Paradise Trinity before he ever embarked upon the supreme adventure of space.
The Sons of God may choose the realms of their creator activities, but these material creations were originally projected and planned by the Paradise Architects of the Master Universe.
Presented by a Mighty Messenger temporarily attached to the Supreme Council of Nebadon and assigned to this mission by Gabriel of Salvington, from the Urantia Papers.
Physical Emergence of Universes
Physically speaking, Nebadon possesses all of the physical endowment of energy and matter that may be found in any of the Orvonton local creations.
The Creator Sons are preceded in universe organization by the power directors and other beings originating in the Third Source and Center.
The Evolutionary Idea
The creations of the seven superuniverses are finite, evolutionary, and consistently progressive.
God’s Relation to a Local Universe
God is not a self-centered personality; the Father freely distributes himself to his creation and to his creatures.
The Eternal and Divine Purpose
The eternal purpose of the eternal God is a high spiritual ideal.
