Relation of the Eternal Son to the Universe






THE Original Son is ever concerned with the execution of the spiritual aspects of the Father's eternal purpose as it progressively unfolds in the phenomena of the evolving universes with their manifold groups of living beings. We do not fully comprehend this eternal plan, but the Paradise Son undoubtedly does.

The Son is like the Father in that he seeks to bestow everything possible of himself upon his co-ordinate Sons and upon their subordinate Sons. And the Son shares the Father's self-distributive nature in the unstinted bestowal of himself upon the Infinite Spirit, their conjoint executive.





As the upholder of spirit realities, the Second Source and Center is the eternal counterpoise of the Isle of Paradise, which so magnificently upholds all things material. Thus is the First Source and Center forever revealed in the material beauty of the exquisite patterns of the central Isle and in the spiritual values of the supernal personality of the Eternal Son.





The Eternal Son is the actual upholder of the vast creation of spirit realities and spiritual beings. The spirit world is the habit, the personal conduct, of the Son, and the impersonal realities of spirit nature are always responsive to the will and purpose of the perfect personality of the Absolute Son.

The Son is not, however, personally responsible for the conduct of all spirit personalities. The will of the personal creature is relatively free and hence determines the actions of such volitional beings. Therefore the freewill spirit world is not always truly representative of the character of the Eternal Son, even as nature on Urantia is not truly revelatory of the perfection and immutability of Paradise and Deity. But no matter what may characterize the freewill action of man or angel, the Son's eternal grasp of the universal gravity control of all spirit realities continues as absolute.

The Spirit-Gravity Circuit
Spirit-gravity pull and response thereto operate not only on the universe as a whole but also even between individuals and groups of individuals.


The Administration of the Eternal Son
As we pass outward from Paradise through Havona and into the realms of the seven superuniverses, we detect less and less of the personal activity of the Eternal Son.


Relation of the Eternal Son to the Individual
In the local universe ascent the mortals of time look to the Creator Son as the personal representative of the Eternal Son.


The Divine Perfection Plans
The Eternal Son is in everlasting liaison with the Father in the successful prosecution of the divine plan of progress...


The Spirit of Bestowal
In spirit and nature, if not in all attributes, each Paradise Son is a divinely perfect portraiture of the Original Son.


The Paradise Sons of God
The lack of a knowledge of the multiple Sons of God is a source of great confusion on Urantia.


The Supreme Revelation of the Father
The Eternal Son is a complete, exclusive, universal, and final revelation of the spirit and the personality of the Universal Father.
