The Urantia Book
THE PARADISE SONS OF GOD
Presented by a Perfector of Wisdom from Uversa.
20:0.1 AS THEY function in the superuniverse
of Orvonton, the Sons of God are classified under three general
1. The Descending Sons of God.
2. The Ascending Sons of God.
3. The Trinitized Sons of God.
20:0.2 Descending orders of sonship include
personalities who are of direct and divine creation. Ascending
sons, such as mortal creatures, achieve this status by
experiential participation in the creative technique known as
evolution. Trinitized Sons are a group of composite origin which
includes all beings embraced by the Paradise Trinity even though
not of direct Trinity origin.
1. THE DESCENDING SONS OF GOD
20:1.1 All descending Sons of God have high
and divine origins. They are dedicated to the descending
ministry of service on the worlds and systems of time and space,
there to facilitate the progress in the Paradise climb of the
lowly creatures of evolutionary origin -- the ascending sons of
God. Of the numerous orders of descending Sons, seven will be
depicted in these narratives. Those Sons who come forth from the
Deities on the central Isle of Light and Life are called the
Paradise Sons of God and embrace the following three orders:
1. Creator Sons -- the Michaels.
2. Magisterial Sons -- the Avonals.
3. Trinity Teacher Sons -- the
20:1.2 The remaining four orders of descending
sonship are known as the Local Universe Sons of God:
4. Melchizedek Sons.
5. Vorondadek Sons.
6. Lanonandek Sons.
7. The Life Carriers.
20:1.3 Melchizedeks are the joint offspring of
a local universe Creator Son, Creative Spirit, and Father
Melchizedek. Both Vorondadeks and Lanonandeks are brought into
being by a Creator Son and his Creative Spirit associate.
Vorondadeks are best known as the Most Highs, the Constellation
Fathers; Lanonandeks as System Sovereigns and as Planetary
Princes. The threefold order of Life Carriers is brought into
being by a Creator Son and Creative Spirit associated with one
of the three Ancients of Days of the superuniverse of
jurisdiction. But the natures and activities of these Local
Universe Sons of God are more properly portrayed in those papers
dealing with the affairs of the local creations.
20:1.4 The Paradise Sons of God are of
threefold origin: The primary or Creator Sons are brought into
being by the Universal Father and the Eternal Son; the secondary
or Magisterial Sons are children of the Eternal Son and the
Infinite Spirit; the Trinity Teacher Sons are the offspring of
the Father, Son, and Spirit. From the standpoint of service,
worship, and supplication the Paradise Sons are as one; their
spirit is one, and their work is identical in quality and
20:1.5 As the Paradise orders of Days proved
to be divine administrators, so have the orders of Paradise Sons
revealed themselves as divine ministers -- creators, servers,
bestowers, judges, teachers, and truth revealers. They range the
universe of universes from the shores of the eternal Isle to the
inhabited worlds of time and space, performing manifold services
in the central and superuniverses not disclosed in these
narratives. They are variously organized, dependent on the
nature and whereabouts of their service, but in a local universe
both Magisterial and Teacher Sons serve under the direction of
the Creator Son who presides over that domain.
20:1.6 The Creator Sons seem to possess a
spiritual endowment centering in their persons, which they
control and which they can bestow, as did your own Creator Son
when he poured out his spirit upon all mortal flesh on Urantia.
Each Creator Son is endowed with this spiritual drawing power in
his own realm; he is personally conscious of every act and
emotion of every descending Son of God serving in his domain.
Here is a divine reflection, a local universe duplication, of
that absolute spiritual drawing power of the Eternal Son which
enables him to reach out to make and maintain contact with all
his Paradise Sons, no matter where they may be in all the
universe of universes.
20:1.7 The Paradise Creator Sons serve not
only as Sons in their descending ministrations of service and
bestowal, but when they have completed their bestowal careers,
each functions as a universe Father in his own creation, while
the other Sons of God continue the service of bestowal and
spiritual uplifting designed to win the planets, one by one, to
the willing recognition of the loving rule of the Universal
Father, culminating in creature consecration to the will of the
Paradise Father and in planetary loyalty to the universe
sovereignty of his Creator Son.
20:1.8 In a sevenfold Creator Son, Creator and
creature are forever blended in understanding, sympathetic, and
merciful association. The entire order of Michael, the Creator
Sons, is so unique that the consideration of their natures and
activities will be reserved to the next paper in this series,
while this narrative will be chiefly concerned with the two
remaining orders of Paradise sonship: the Magisterial Sons and
the Trinity Teacher Sons.
2. THE MAGISTERIAL SONS
20:2.1 Every time an original and absolute
concept of being formulated by the Eternal Son unites with a new
and divine ideal of loving service conceived by the Infinite
Spirit, a new and original Son of God, a Paradise Magisterial
Son, is produced. These Sons constitute the order of Avonals in
contradistinction to the order of Michael, the Creator Sons.
Though not creators in the personal sense, they are closely
associated with the Michaels in all their work. The Avonals are
planetary ministers and judges, the magistrates of the
time-space realms -- of all races, to all worlds, and in all
20:2.2 We have reasons for believing that the
total number of Magisterial Sons in the grand universe is about
one billion. They are a self-governing order, being directed by
their supreme council on Paradise, which is made up of
experienced Avonals drawn from the services of all universes.
But when assigned to, and commissioned in, a local universe,
they serve under the direction of the Creator Son of that
20:2.3 Avonals are the Paradise Sons of
service and bestowal to the individual planets of the local
universes. And since each Avonal Son has an exclusive
personality, since no two are alike, their work is individually
unique in the realms of their sojourn, where they are often
incarnated in the likeness of mortal flesh and sometimes are
born of earthly mothers on the evolutionary worlds.
20:2.4 In addition to their services on the
higher administrative levels, the Avonals have a threefold
function on the inhabited worlds:
20:2.5 1. Judicial Actions. They act at
the close of the planetary dispensations. In time, scores --
hundreds -- of such missions may be executed on each individual
world, and they may go to the same or to other worlds times
without number as dispensation terminators, liberators of the
20:2.6 2. Magisterial Missions. A
planetary visitation of this type usually occurs prior to the
arrival of a bestowal Son. On such a mission an Avonal appears
as an adult of the realm by a technique of incarnation not
involving mortal birth. Subsequent to this first and usual
magisterial visit, Avonals may repeatedly serve in a magisterial
capacity on the same planet both before and after the appearance
of the bestowal Son. On these additional magisterial missions an
Avonal may or may not appear in material and visible form, but
on none of them will he be born into the world as a helpless
20:2.7 3. Bestowal Missions. The Avonal
Sons do all, at least once, bestow themselves upon some mortal
race on some evolutionary world. Judicial visits are numerous,
magisterial missions may be plural, but on each planet there
appears but one bestowal Son. Bestowal Avonals are born of woman
as Michael of Nebadon was incarnated on Urantia.
20:2.8 There is no limit to the number of
times the Avonal Sons may serve on magisterial and on bestowal
missions, but usually, when the experience has been seven times
traversed, there is suspension in favor of those who have had
less of such service. These Sons of multiple bestowal experience
are then assigned to the high personal council of a Creator Son,
thus becoming participants in the administration of universe
20:2.9 In all their work for and on the
inhabited worlds, the Magisterial Sons are assisted by two
orders of local universe creatures, the Melchizedeks and the
archangels, while on bestowal missions they are also accompanied
by the Brilliant Evening Stars, likewise of origin in the local
creations. In every planetary effort the secondary Paradise
Sons, the Avonals, are supported by the full power and authority
of a primary Paradise Son, the Creator Son of their local
universe of service. To all intents and purposes their work on
the inhabited spheres is just as effective and acceptable as
would have been the service of a Creator Son upon such worlds of
3. JUDICIAL ACTIONS
20:3.1 The Avonals are known as Magisterial
Sons because they are the high magistrates of the realms, the
adjudicators of the successive dispensations of the worlds of
time. They preside over the awakening of the sleeping survivors,
sit in judgment on the realm, bring to an end a dispensation of
suspended justice, execute the mandates of an age of
probationary mercy, reassign the space creatures of planetary
ministry to the tasks of the new dispensation, and return to the
headquarters of their local universe upon the completion of
20:3.2 When they sit in judgment on the
destinies of an age, the Avonals decree the fate of the
evolutionary races, but though they may render judgments
extinguishing the identity of personal creatures, they do not
execute such sentences. Verdicts of this nature are executed by
none but the authorities of a superuniverse.
20:3.3 The arrival of a Paradise Avonal on an
evolutionary world for the purpose of terminating a dispensation
and of inaugurating a new era of planetary progression is not
necessarily either a magisterial mission or a bestowal mission.
Magisterial missions sometimes, and bestowal missions always,
are incarnations; that is, on such assignments the Avonals serve
on a planet in material form -- literally. Their other visits
are "technical," and in this capacity an Avonal is not
incarnated for planetary service. If a Magisterial Son comes
solely as a dispensational adjudicator, he arrives on a planet
as a spiritual being, invisible to the material creatures of the
realm. Such technical visits occur repeatedly in the long
history of an inhabited world.
20:3.4 Avonal Sons may act as planetary judges
prior to both the magisterial and bestowal experiences. On
either of these missions, however, the incarnated Son will judge
the passing planetary age; likewise does a Creator Son when
incarnated on a mission of bestowal in the likeness of mortal
flesh. When a Paradise Son visits an evolutionary world and
becomes like one of its people, his presence terminates a
dispensation and constitutes a judgment of the realm.
4. MAGISTERIAL MISSIONS
20:4.1 Prior to the planetary appearance of a
bestowal Son, an inhabited world is usually visited by a
Paradise Avonal on a magisterial mission. If it is an initial
magisterial visitation, the Avonal is always incarnated as a
material being. He appears on the planet of assignment as a
full-fledged male of the mortal races, a being fully visible to,
and in physical contact with, the mortal creatures of his day
and generation. Throughout a magisterial incarnation the
connection of the Avonal Son with the local and the universal
spiritual forces is complete and unbroken.
20:4.2 A planet may experience many
magisterial visitations both before and after the appearance of
a bestowal Son. It may be visited many times by the same or
other Avonals, acting as dispensational adjudicators, but such
technical missions of judgment are neither bestowal nor
magisterial, and the Avonals are never incarnated at such times.
Even when a planet is blessed with repeated magisterial
missions, the Avonals do not always submit to mortal
incarnation; and when they do serve in the likeness of mortal
flesh, they always appear as adult beings of the realm; they are
not born of woman.
20:4.3 When incarnated on either bestowal or
magisterial missions, the Paradise Sons have experienced
Adjusters, and these Adjusters are different for each
incarnation. The Adjusters that occupy the minds of the
incarnated Sons of God can never hope for personality through
fusion with the human-divine beings of their indwelling, but
they are often personalized by fiat of the Universal Father.
Such Adjusters form the supreme Divinington council of direction
for the administration, identification, and dispatch of Mystery
Monitors to the inhabited realms. They also receive and accredit
Adjusters on their return to the "bosom of the Father" upon the
mortal dissolution of their earthly tabernacles. In this way the
faithful Adjusters of the world judges become the exalted chiefs
of their kind.
20:4.4 Urantia has never been host to an
Avonal Son on a magisterial mission. Had Urantia followed the
general plan of inhabited worlds, it would have been blessed
with a magisterial mission sometime between the days of Adam and
the bestowal of Christ Michael. But the regular sequence of
Paradise Sons on your planet was wholly deranged by the
appearance of your Creator Son on his terminal bestowal nineteen
hundred years ago.
20:4.5 Urantia may yet be visited by an Avonal
commissioned to incarnate on a magisterial mission, but
regarding the future appearance of Paradise Sons, not even "the
angels in heaven know the time or manner of such visitations,"
for a Michael-bestowal world becomes the individual and personal
ward of a Master Son and, as such, is wholly subject to his own
plans and rulings. And with your world, this is further
complicated by Michael's promise to return. Regardless of the
misunderstandings about the Urantian sojourn of Michael of Nebadon, one thing is certainly authentic -- his promise to come
back to your world. In view of this prospect, only time can
reveal the future order of the visitations of the Paradise Sons
of God on Urantia.
5. BESTOWAL OF THE PARADISE SONS OF GOD
20:5.1 The Eternal Son is the eternal Word of
God. The Eternal Son is the perfect expression of the "first"
absolute and infinite thought of his eternal Father. When a
personal duplication or divine extension of this Original Son
starts on a bestowal mission of mortal incarnation, it becomes
literally true that the divine "Word is made flesh," and that
the Word thus dwells among the lowly beings of animal origin.
20:5.2 On Urantia there is a widespread belief
that the purpose of a Son's bestowal is, in some manner, to
influence the attitude of the Universal Father. But your
enlightenment should indicate that this is not true. The
bestowals of the Avonal and the Michael Sons are a necessary
part of the experiential process designed to make these Sons
safe and sympathetic magistrates and rulers of the peoples and
planets of time and space. The career of sevenfold bestowal is
the supreme goal of all Paradise Creator Sons. And all
Magisterial Sons are motivated by this same spirit of service
which so abundantly characterizes the primary Creator Sons and
the Eternal Son of Paradise.
20:5.3 Some order of Paradise Son must be
bestowed upon each mortal-inhabited world in order to make it
possible for Thought Adjusters to indwell the minds of all
normal human beings on that sphere, for the Adjusters do not
come to all bona fide human beings until the Spirit of Truth has
been poured out upon all flesh; and the sending of the Spirit of
Truth is dependent upon the return to universe headquarters of a
Paradise Son who has successfully executed a mission of mortal
bestowal upon an evolving world.
20:5.4 During the course of the long history
of an inhabited planet, many dispensational adjudications will
take place, and more than one magisterial mission may occur, but
ordinarily only once will a bestowal Son serve on the sphere. It
is only required that each inhabited world have one bestowal Son
come to live the full mortal life from birth to death. Sooner or
later, regardless of spiritual status, every mortal-inhabited
world is destined to become host to a Magisterial Son on a
bestowal mission except the one planet in each local universe
whereon a Creator Son elects to make his mortal bestowal.
20:5.5 Understanding more about the bestowal
Sons, you discern why so much interest attaches to Urantia in
the history of Nebadon. Your small and insignificant planet is
of local universe concern simply because it is the mortal home
world of Jesus of Nazareth. It was the scene of the final and
triumphant bestowal of your Creator Son, the arena in which
Michael won the supreme personal sovereignty of the universe of
20:5.6 At the headquarters of his local
universe a Creator Son, especially after the completion of his
own mortal bestowal, spends much of his time in counseling and
instructing the college of associate Sons, the Magisterial Sons
and others. In love and devotion, with tender mercy and
affectionate consideration, these Magisterial Sons bestow
themselves upon the worlds of space. And in no way are these
planetary services inferior to the mortal bestowals of the
Michaels. It is true that your Creator Son selected for the
realm of his final adventure in creature experience one which
had had unusual misfortunes. But no planet could ever be in such
a condition that it would require the bestowal of a Creator Son
to effect its spiritual rehabilitation. Any Son of the bestowal
group would have equally sufficed, for in all their work on the
worlds of a local universe the Magisterial Sons are just as
divinely effective and all wise as would have been their
Paradise brother, the Creator Son.
20:5.7 Though the possibility of disaster
always attends these Paradise Sons during their bestowal
incarnations, I have yet to see the record of the failure or
default of either a Magisterial or a Creator Son on a mission of
bestowal. Both are of origin too close to absolute perfection to
fail. They indeed assume the risk, really become like the mortal
creatures of flesh and blood and thereby gain the unique
creature experience, but within the range of my observation they
always succeed. They never fail to achieve the goal of the
bestowal mission. The story of their bestowal and planetary
service throughout Nebadon constitutes the most noble and
fascinating chapter in the history of your local universe.
6. THE MORTAL-BESTOWAL CAREERS
20:6.1 The method whereby a Paradise Son
becomes ready for mortal incarnation as a bestowal Son, becomes
enmothered on the bestowal planet, is a universal mystery; and
any effort to detect the working of this Sonarington technique
is doomed to meet with certain failure. Let the sublime
knowledge of the mortal life of Jesus of Nazareth sink into your
souls, but waste no thought in useless speculation as to how
this mysterious incarnation of Michael of Nebadon was effected.
Let us all rejoice in the knowledge and assurance that such
achievements are possible to the divine nature and waste no time
on futile conjectures about the technique employed by divine
wisdom to effect such phenomena.
20:6.2 On a mortal-bestowal mission a Paradise
Son is always born of woman and grows up as a male child of the
realm, as Jesus did on Urantia. These Sons of supreme service
all pass from infancy through youth to manhood just as does a
human being. In every respect they become like the mortals of
the race into which they are born. They make petitions to the
Father as do the children of the realms in which they serve.
From a material viewpoint, these human-divine Sons live ordinary
lives with just one exception: They do not beget offspring on
the worlds of their sojourn; that is a universal restriction
imposed on all orders of the Paradise bestowal Sons.
20:6.3 As Jesus worked on your world as the
carpenter's son, so do other Paradise Sons labor in various
capacities on their bestowal planets. You could hardly think of
a vocation that has not been followed by some Paradise Son in
the course of his bestowal on some one of the evolutionary
planets of time.
20:6.4 When a bestowal Son has mastered the
experience of living the mortal life, when he has achieved
perfection of attunement with his indwelling Adjuster, thereupon
he begins that part of his planetary mission designed to
illuminate the minds and to inspire the souls of his brethren in
the flesh. As teachers, these Sons are exclusively devoted to
the spiritual enlightenment of the mortal races on the worlds of
20:6.5 The mortal-bestowal careers of the
Michaels and the Avonals, while comparable in most respects, are
not identical in all: Never does a Magisterial Son proclaim,
"Whosoever has seen the Son has seen the Father," as did your
Creator Son when on Urantia and in the flesh. But a bestowed
Avonal does declare, "Whosoever has seen me has seen the Eternal
Son of God." The Magisterial Sons are not of immediate descent
from the Universal Father, nor do they incarnate subject to the
Father's will; always do they bestow themselves as Paradise Sons
subject to the will of the Eternal Son of Paradise.
20:6.6 When the bestowal Sons, Creator or
Magisterial, enter the portals of death, they reappear on the
third day. But you should not entertain the idea that they
always meet with the tragic end encountered by the Creator Son
who sojourned on your world nineteen hundred years ago. The
extraordinary and unusually cruel experience through which Jesus
of Nazareth passed has caused Urantia to become locally known as
"the world of the cross." It is not necessary that such inhuman
treatment be accorded a Son of God, and the vast majority of
planets have afforded them a more considerate reception,
allowing them to finish their mortal careers, terminate the age,
adjudicate the sleeping survivors, and inaugurate a new
dispensation, without imposing a violent death. A bestowal Son
must encounter death, must pass through the whole of the actual
experience of mortals of the realms, but it is not a requirement
of the divine plan that this death be either violent or unusual.
20:6.7 When bestowal Sons are not put to death
by violence, they voluntarily relinquish their lives and pass
through the portals of death, not to satisfy the demands of
"stern justice" or "divine wrath," but rather to complete the
bestowal, "to drink the cup" of the career of incarnation and
personal experience in all that constitutes a creature's life as
it is lived on the planets of mortal existence. Bestowal is a
planetary and a universe necessity, and physical death is
nothing more than a necessary part of a bestowal mission.
20:6.8 When the mortal incarnation is
finished, the Avonal of service proceeds to Paradise, is
accepted by the Universal Father, returns to the local universe
of assignment, and is acknowledged by the Creator Son. Thereupon
the bestowal Avonal and the Creator Son send their conjoint
Spirit of Truth to function in the hearts of the mortal races
dwelling on the bestowal world. In the presovereignty ages of a
local universe, this is the joint spirit of both Sons,
implemented by the Creative Spirit. It differs somewhat from the
Spirit of Truth which characterizes the local universe ages
following a Michael's seventh bestowal.
20:6.9 Upon the completion of a Creator Son's
final bestowal the Spirit of Truth previously sent into all
Avonal-bestowal worlds of that local universe changes in nature,
becoming more literally the spirit of the sovereign Michael.
This phenomenon takes place concurrently with the liberation of
the Spirit of Truth for service on the Michael-mortal-bestowal
planet. Thereafter, each world honored by a Magisterial bestowal
will receive the same spirit Comforter from the sevenfold
Creator Son, in association with that Magisterial Son, which it
would have received had the local universe Sovereign personally
incarnated as its bestowal Son.
7. THE TRINITY TEACHER SONS
20:7.1 These highly personal and highly
spiritual Paradise Sons are brought into being by the Paradise
Trinity. They are known in Havona as the order of Daynals. In
Orvonton they are of record as Trinity Teacher Sons, so named
because of their parentage. On Salvington they are sometimes
denominated the Paradise Spiritual Sons.
20:7.2 In numbers the Teacher Sons are
constantly increasing. The last universal census broadcast gave
the number of these Trinity Sons functioning in the central and
superuniverses as a little more than twenty-one billion, and
this is exclusive of the Paradise reserves, which include more
than one third of all Trinity Teacher Sons in existence.
20:7.3 The Daynal order of sonship is not an
organic part of the local or superuniverse administrations. Its
members are neither creators nor retrievers, neither judges nor
rulers. They are not so much concerned with universe
administration as with moral enlightenment and spiritual
development. They are the universal educators, being dedicated
to the spiritual awakening and moral guidance of all realms.
Their ministry is intimately interrelated with that of the
personalities of the Infinite Spirit and is closely associated
with the Paradise ascension of creature beings.
20:7.4 These Sons of the Trinity partake of
the combined natures of the three Paradise Deities, but in
Havona they seem more to reflect the nature of the Universal
Father. In the superuniverses they seem to portray the nature of
the Eternal Son, while in the local creations they appear to
show forth the character of the Infinite Spirit. In all
universes they are the embodiment of service and the discretion
20:7.5 Unlike their Paradise brethren,
Michaels and Avonals, Trinity Teacher Sons receive no
preliminary training in the central universe. They are
dispatched directly to the headquarters of the superuniverses
and from there are commissioned for service in some local
universe. In their ministry to these evolutionary realms they
utilize the combined spiritual influence of a Creator Son and
the associated Magisterial Sons, for the Daynals do not possess
a spiritual drawing power in and of themselves.
8. LOCAL UNIVERSE MINISTRY OF THE DAYNALS
20:8.1 The Paradise Spiritual Sons are unique
Trinity-origin beings and the only Trinity creatures to be so
completely associated with the conduct of the dual-origin
universes. They are affectionately devoted to the educational
ministry to mortal creatures and the lower orders of spiritual
beings. They begin their labors in the local systems and, in
accordance with experience and achievement, are advanced inward
through the constellation service to the highest work of the
local creation. Upon certification they may become spiritual
ambassadors representing the local universes of their service.
20:8.2 The exact number of Teacher Sons in
Nebadon I do not know; there are many thousands of them. Many of
the heads of departments in the Melchizedek schools belong to
this order, while the combined staff of the regularly
constituted University of Salvington embraces over one hundred
thousand including these Sons. Large numbers are stationed on
the various morontia-training worlds, but they are not wholly
occupied with the spiritual and intellectual advancement of
mortal creatures; they are equally concerned with the
instruction of seraphic beings and other natives of the local
creations. Many of their assistants are drawn from the ranks of
the creature-trinitized beings.
20:8.3 The Teacher Sons compose the faculties
who administer all examinations and conduct all tests for the
qualification and certification of all subordinate phases of
universe service, from the duties of outpost sentinels to those
of star students. They conduct an agelong course of training,
ranging from the planetary courses up to the high College of
Wisdom located on Salvington. Recognition indicative of effort
and attainment is granted to all, ascending mortal or ambitious
cherubim, who complete these adventures in wisdom and truth.
20:8.4 In all universes all the Sons of God
are beholden to these ever-faithful and universally efficient
Trinity Teacher Sons. They are the exalted teachers of all
spirit personalities, even the tried and true teachers of the
Sons of God themselves. But of the endless details of the duties
and functions of the Teacher Sons I can hardly instruct you. The
vast domain of Daynal-sonship activities will be better
understood on Urantia when you are more advanced in
intelligence, and after the spiritual isolation of your planet
has been terminated.
9. PLANETARY SERVICE OF THE DAYNALS
20:9.1 When the progress of events on an
evolutionary world indicates that the time is ripe to initiate a
spiritual age, the Trinity Teacher Sons always volunteer for
this service. You are not familiar with this order of sonship
because Urantia has never experienced a spiritual age, a
millennium of cosmic enlightenment. But the Teacher Sons even
now visit your world for the purpose of formulating plans
concerning their projected sojourn on your sphere. They will be
due to appear on Urantia after its inhabitants have gained
comparative deliverance from the shackles of animalism and from
the fetters of materialism.
20:9.2 Trinity Teacher Sons have nothing to do
with terminating planetary dispensations. They neither judge the
dead nor translate the living, but on each planetary mission
they are accompanied by a Magisterial Son who performs these
services. Teacher Sons are wholly concerned with the initiation
of a spiritual age, with the dawn of the era of spiritual
realities on an evolutionary planet. They make real the
spiritual counterparts of material knowledge and temporal
20:9.3 The Teacher Sons usually remain on
their visitation planets for one thousand years of planetary
time. One Teacher Son presides over the planetary millennial
reign and is assisted by seventy associates of his order. The
Daynals do not incarnate or otherwise so materialize themselves
as to be visible to mortal beings; therefore is contact with the
world of visitation maintained through the activities of the
Brilliant Evening Stars, local universe personalities who are
associated with the Trinity Teacher Sons.
20:9.4 The Daynals may return many times to an
inhabited world, and following their final mission the planet
will be ushered into the settled status of a sphere of light and
life, the evolutionary goal of all the mortal-inhabited worlds
of the present universe age. The Mortal Corps of the Finality
has much to do with the spheres settled in light and life, and
their planetary activities touch upon those of the Teacher Sons.
Indeed, the whole order of Daynal sonship is intimately
connected with all phases of finaliter activities in the
evolutionary creations of time and space.
20:9.5 The Trinity Teacher Sons seem to be so
completely identified with the regime of mortal progression
through the earlier stages of evolutionary ascension that we are
often led to speculate regarding their possible association with
the finaliters in the undisclosed career of the future
universes. We observe that the administrators of the
superuniverses are part Trinity-origin personalities and part
Trinity-embraced ascendant evolutionary creatures. We firmly
believe that the Teacher Sons and the finaliters are now engaged
in acquiring the experience of time-association which may be the
preliminary training to prepare them for close association in
some unrevealed future destiny. On Uversa it is our belief that,
when the superuniverses are finally settled in light and life,
these Paradise Teacher Sons, who have become so thoroughly
familiar with the problems of evolutionary worlds and have been
so long associated with the career of evolutionary mortals, will
probably be transferred to eternal association with the Paradise
Corps of the Finality.
10. UNITED MINISTRY OF THE PARADISE SONS
20:10.1 All the Paradise Sons of God are
divine in origin and in nature. The work of each Paradise Son in
behalf of each world is just as if the Son of service were the
first and only Son of God.
20:10.2 The Paradise Sons are the divine
presentation of the acting natures of the three persons of Deity
to the domains of time and space. The Creator, Magisterial, and
Teacher Sons are the gifts of the eternal Deities to the
children of men and to all other universe creatures of ascension
potential. These Sons of God are the divine ministers who are
unceasingly devoted to the work of helping the creatures of time
attain the high spiritual goal of eternity.
20:10.3 In the Creator Sons the love of the
Universal Father is blended with the mercy of the Eternal Son
and is disclosed to the local universes in the creative power,
loving ministry, and understanding sovereignty of the Michaels.
In the Magisterial Sons the mercy of the Eternal Son, united
with the ministry of the Infinite Spirit, is revealed to the
evolutionary domains in the careers of these Avonals of
judgment, service, and bestowal. In the Trinity Teacher Sons the
love, mercy, and ministry of the three Paradise Deities are
co-ordinated on the highest time-space value-levels and are
presented to the universes as living truth, divine goodness, and
true spiritual beauty.
20:10.4 In the local universes these orders of
sonship collaborate to effect the revelation of the Deities of
Paradise to the creatures of space: As the Father of a local
universe, a Creator Son portrays the infinite character of the
Universal Father. As the bestowal Sons of mercy, the Avonals
reveal the matchless nature of the Eternal Son of infinite
compassion. As the true teachers of ascending personalities, the
Trinity Daynal Sons disclose the teacher personality of the
Infinite Spirit. In their divinely perfect co-operation,
Michaels, Avonals, and Daynals are contributing to the
actualization and revelation of the personality and sovereignty
of God the Supreme in and to the time-space universes. In the
harmony of their triune activities these Paradise Sons of God
ever function in the vanguard of the personalities of Deity as
