[This is an expansion of my earlier Topical Study 28 in two parts. See here: Study 28 Divine and Human Service Ministry (Scroll 60% down that page) ]
How does the Divine Ministry to humans, of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Spirit, differ?
How are they alike?
How are they applied in our local universe?
Paper 8 THE INFINITE SPIRIT
6. Personality of the Infinite Spirit
8:6.5 Even though we behold the phenomenon of the Ministry of the Infinite Spirit to the remote worlds of the universe of universes, even though we envisage this same Coordinating Deity acting in and through the untold legions of the manifold beings who take origin in the Third Source and Center, even though we recognize the Omnipresence of the Spirit, nonetheless, we still affirm that this same Third Source and Center is a [real] person, the Conjoint Creator of all things and all beings and all universes.
8:6.6 In the administration of universes the Father, Son, and Spirit are perfectly and eternally interassociated. Though each is engaged in a Personal Ministry to all creation, all three are divinely and absolutely interlocked in a service of creation and control which forever makes them one.
Paper 9 RELATION OF THE INFINITE SPIRIT TO THE UNIVERSE
9:0.1 A strange thing occurred when, in the presence of Paradise, the Universal Father and the Eternal Son unite to personalize themselves. Nothing in this eternity situation foreshadows that the Conjoint Actor would personalize as an unlimited spirituality co-ordinated with absolute mind and endowed with unique prerogatives of energy manipulation. His coming into being completes the Father’s liberation from the bonds of centralized perfection and from the fetters of personality absolutism. And this liberation is disclosed in the amazing power of the Conjoint Creator to create beings well adapted to serve as Ministering Spirits [our Creative Mother (Holy) Spirit] even to the material creatures of the subsequently evolving universes.
9:0.2 The Father is infinite in love and volition, in spiritual thought and purpose; He is the Universal Upholder. The Son is infinite in wisdom and truth, in spiritual expression and interpretation; He is the Universal Revealer. Paradise is infinite in potential for force endowment and in capacity for energy dominance; it is the Universal Stabilizer. The Conjoint Actor possesses unique prerogatives of synthesis, infinite capacity to Coordinate all existing universe energies, all actual universe spirits, and all real universe intellects; the Third Source and Center is the universal Unifier of the manifold energies and diverse creations which have appeared in consequence of the Divine Plan and the Eternal Purpose of the Universal Father.
9:0.3 The Infinite Spirit, the Conjoint Creator, is a Universal and Divine Minister. The Spirit unceasingly ministers the Son’s mercy and the Father’s love, even in harmony with the stable, unvarying, and righteous justice of the Paradise Trinity. His influence and personalities are ever near you; they really know and truly understand you. [!!]
1. ATTRIBUTES OF THE THIRD SOURCE AND CENTER
9:1.3 While you envisage the Father as an original Creator and the Son as a spiritual administrator, you should think of the Third Source and Center as a universal co-ordinator, a Minister of unlimited co-operation. The Conjoint Actor is the correlator of all actual reality; he is the Deity repository of the Father’s thought and the Son’s word and in action is eternally regardful of the material absoluteness of the central Isle. The Paradise Trinity has ordained the universal order of progress, and the providence of God is the domain of the Conjoint Creator and the evolving Supreme Being. No actual or actualizing reality can escape eventual relationship with the Third Source and Center.
9:1.8 In addition to this supercontrol of energy and things physical, the Infinite Spirit is superbly endowed with those attributes of patience, mercy, and love which are so exquisitely revealed in his spiritual Ministry. The Spirit is supremely competent to minister love and to overshadow justice with mercy. God the Spirit possesses all the supernal kindness and merciful affection of the Original and Eternal Son. The universe of your origin is being forged out between the anvil of justice and the hammer of suffering; but those who wield the hammer are the children of mercy, the spirit offspring of the Infinite Spirit. [God's invitation-command to each of us is: "Be you perfect; even as I AM perfect." "Follow and obey your Creator Father-Son Jesus Christ Michael." "In Him (our Sovereign Jesus) here, I AM; and WE (the Trinity Government) ARE." (This last sentence is my interpretive, inspired paraphrase of our universe spiritual Reality; more later.)]
2. THE OMNIPRESENT SPIRIT
9:2.3 There are many untrammeled [unhampered] lines of spiritual force and sources of supermaterial power linking the people of earth directly with the Deities of Paradise. There exist the connection of the Thought Adjusters [God's perfect prepersonal Spirit will within your mind and soul] direct with the Universal Father, the widespread influence of the Spiritual-Gravity urge of the Eternal Son, and the Spiritual Presence of the Conjoint Creator. There is a difference in function between the Spirit of the Son and the Spirit of the Spirit. The Third Person in his Spiritual Ministry may function as Mind plus Spirit or as Spirit alone.
5. The Ministry of Mind
9:5.3 The unique feature of mind is that it can be bestowed upon such a wide range of life. Through his creative and creature associates the Third Source and Center ministers to all minds on all spheres. He ministers to human and subhuman intellect through the [seven] adjutants [mind-spirits of the Creative Minister] of the local universes and, through the agency of the physical controllers, ministers even to the lowest nonexperiencing entities of the most primitive types of living things. And always is the direction of mind a ministry of mind-spirit or mind-energy personalities.
8. PERSONALITIES OF THE INFINITE SPIRIT
9:8.6 The Third Source and Center is represented in the grand universe by a vast [maybe infinite in number !] array of ministering spirits, messengers, teachers, adjudicators, helpers, and advisers, together with supervisors of certain circuits of physical, morontial, and spiritual nature. Not all of these beings are personalities in the strict meaning of the term. Personality of the finite-creature variety is characterized by:
9:8.7 1. Subjective self-consciousness.
9:8.8 2. Objective response to the Father's personality circuit. [!!]
3. The Ministering Spirits of Time.
9:8.25 The Spirit personalities of the vast family of the Divine and Infinite Spirit are forever dedicated to the service of the Ministry of the love of God and the mercy of the Son to all the intelligent creatures of the evolutionary worlds of time and space. These Spirit beings constitute the living ladder whereby mortal man climbs from chaos to glory. [Some readers of this Revelation have also stated our long evolution into all Spirit-perfection as: "from clod to God" and "from slime to Sublime"; I added "from oozed to Enthused". Ha ha]
Paper 10 THE PARADISE TRINITY
1. SELF-DISTRIBUTION OF THE FIRST SOURCE AND CENTER
10:1.2 [Very important !] The Universal Father all along has divested himself of every part of himself that was bestowable on any other Creator or creature. He has delegated to his Divine [Creator] Sons and their associated intelligences every Power and All Authority that could be delegated. He has actually transferred to his Sovereign Sons, in their respective universes, [our Sovereign God-Man Jesus Christ Michael] every prerogative of administrative Authority that was transferable. In the affairs of a local universe, He has made each Sovereign Creator Son just as perfect, competent, and authoritative as is the Eternal Son in the Original and Central Universe. He has given away, actually bestowed, with the dignity and sanctity of personality possession, all of himself and all of his attributes, everything He possibly could divest himself of, in every way, in every age, in every place, and to every person, and in every universe except that of his central indwelling. [!!! Perfect Divine Ministry to all persons and beings !! God is fully now in Jesus and Jesus is fully in God ! Jesus now has all Power and Authority here of all of Deity to us: God the Father and God the Son and God the Spirit. Jesus is the very Personal fullness of God to us. HE IS I AM here ! I am blessed in Spirit to Know this Eternal Truth personally since my Spirit Birth-Day Eternity since May 24, 1977 and forevermore. Thank You Jesus ! You are here ! Ever Guiding us as He the Holy Father-Son-Spirit of Truth ! Even All Truth ! (also see John ch 16, ch 17 and Rev 21:3-7 and others in Spirit and in Father-Son Truth)]
5. FUNCTIONS OF THE TRINITY
10:5.1 The personal Deities have attributes, but it is hardly consistent to speak of the Trinity as having attributes. This association of divine beings may more properly be regarded as having functions, such as justice administration, totality attitudes, coordinate action, and cosmic overcontrol. These functions are actively supreme, ultimate, and (within the limits of Deity) absolute as far as all living realities of personality value are concerned.
10:5.2 The functions of the Paradise Trinity are not simply the sum of the Father's apparent endowment of divinity plus those specialized attributes that are unique in the personal existence of the Son and the Spirit. The Trinity association of the three Paradise Deities results in the evolution, eventuation, and deitization of new meanings, values, powers, and capacities for universal revelation, action, and administration. [Ministry.] Living associations, human families, social groups, or the Paradise Trinity are not augmented by mere arithmetical summation. The group potential is always far in excess of the simple sum of the attributes of the component individuals. [The whole is more than the simple sum of its parts. A crude example on the material level here: If somebody took your functional car and took it carefully apart into 5000 pieces, left all these pieces neatly in your driveway, and told you that "Your car is all there; not one piece has been lost !", you would KNOW that the whole assembled car SYSTEM is much more useful than the present 5000 separate pieces ! Ha ha]
6. THE STATIONARY SONS OF THE TRINITY
10:6.1 All law takes origin in the First Source and Center; he is law. The administration of spiritual law inheres in the Second Source and Center. The revelation of law, the promulgation and interpretation of the divine statutes, is the function of the Third Source and Center. The application of law, justice, falls within the province of the Paradise Trinity and is carried out by certain Sons of the Trinity.
10:6.2 Justice is inherent in the universal sovereignty of the Paradise Trinity, but goodness, mercy, and truth are the Universe Ministry of the divine personalities, whose Deity union constitutes the Trinity. Justice is not the attitude of the Father, the Son, or the Spirit. Justice is the Trinity attitude of these personalities of love, mercy, and ministry. No one of the Paradise Deities fosters the administration of justice. Justice is never a personal attitude; it is always a plural function.
10:6.18 Justice is the collective thought of righteousness; mercy is its personal expression. Mercy is the attitude of love; precision characterizes the operation of law; divine judgment is the soul of fairness, ever conforming to the justice of the Trinity, ever fulfilling the Divine love of God. When fully perceived and completely understood, the righteous justice of the Trinity and the merciful love of the Universal Father are coincident. [The same ! Just as GOD, the Paradise Father of All, IS just as loving and merciful as our Maker-Master JESUS IS ! There is no alleged "sternness", no "wrath" anywhere in Deity !! God's perfect attitude is Absolute and Infinite; thus CHANGELESS. "I AM the Lord God; I change not." "Now is the loving judgment of God in Jesus" (see John 12:31-32) Amen ! Thank You, our merciful and gracious Father !] But man has no such full understanding of divine justice. Thus in the Trinity, as man would view it, the personalities of Father, Son, and Spirit are adjusted to Co-ordinate Ministry of love and law in the experiential universes of time.
Paper 12 THE UNIVERSE OF UNIVERSES
8. MATTER, MIND, AND SPIRIT
12:8.7 The Conjoint Actor [The Paradise Infinite Spirit acting for both the Universal Father and the Eternal Son] reacts to both material and spiritual realities and therefore inherently becomes the Universal Minister to all intelligent beings, beings who may represent a union of both the material and spiritual phases of creation. The endowment of intelligence, the ministry to the material and the spiritual in the phenomenon of mind, is the exclusive domain of the Conjoint Actor, who thus becomes the Partner of the spiritual mind, the Essence of the morontia [soul] mind, and the Substance of the material mind of the evolutionary creatures of time. [!!]
12:8.13 The goal of existence of all personalities is Spirit; material manifestations are relative, and the Cosmic Mind intervenes between these universal opposites. The Bestowal of Mind and the Ministration of Spirit are the work of the associate persons of Deity, the Infinite Spirit and the Eternal Son. Total Deity Reality is not Mind but Spirit-Mind — Mind-Spirit unified by personality. Nevertheless the Absolutes of both the spirit and the thing converge in the Person of the Universal Father. [God The Father-Infinite I AM ]
PAPER 13 THE SACRED SPHERES OF PARADISE
1. THE SEVEN SACRED WORLDS OF THE FATHER
13:1.5 The secrets of Divinington [one of seven secret very high spheres of the Universal Father that circle the Isle of Paradise] include the secret of the Bestowal and Mission of Thought Adjusters. [God's will within you !] Their nature, origin, and the technique of their contact with the lowly creatures of the evolutionary worlds is a secret of this Paradise sphere. These amazing transactions do not personally concern the rest of us, and therefore do the Deities deem it proper to withhold certain features of this Great and Divine Ministry from our full understanding. In so far as we come in contact with this phase of divine activity, we are permitted full knowledge of these transactions, but concerning the intimate details of this Great Bestowal we are not fully informed.
13:1.17 There are numerous additional orders of Spirit personalities, beings unknown to mortal man, who look upon Solitarington as their Paradise home sphere. It should be remembered that all divisions and levels of universe activities are just as fully provided with Spirit Ministers as is the realm concerned with helping mortal man ascend to his Divine Paradise Destiny. [!!]
13:1.19 6. SERAPHINGTON. This sphere is the “bosom of the Son and the Spirit” and is the home world of the vast hosts of unrevealed beings created by the Son and the Spirit. This is also the destiny sphere of all ministering orders of the angelic hosts, including supernaphim, seconaphim, and seraphim. There also serve in the central and outlying universes many orders of superb Spirits who are not “ministering spirits to those who shall be heirs of salvation.” All these spirit workers in all levels and realms of universe activities look upon Seraphington as their Paradise home.
3. THE [SEVEN] SACRED WORLDS OF THE ETERNAL SON
13:3.1 The seven luminous spheres of the Eternal Son are the worlds of the seven phases of pure-Spirit existence. These shining orbs are the source of the threefold Light of Paradise and Havona, their influence being largely, but not wholly, confined to the Central Universe.
13:3.2 Personality is not present on these Paradise satellites; therefore is there little concerning these pure-Spirit abodes which can be presented to the mortal and material personality. We are taught that these worlds teem with the otherwise-than-personal life of the Beings of the Eternal Son. We infer that these Entities are being assembled for Ministry in the projected new universes of outer space. The Paradise philosophers maintain that each Paradise cycle, about two billion years of earth time, witnesses the creation of additional reserves of these orders on the secret worlds of the Eternal Son.
4, THE [SEVEN] WORLDS OF THE INFINITE SPIRIT
13:4.1 Between the inner circuit of Havona and the shining spheres of the Eternal Son there circle the seven orbs of the Infinite Spirit, worlds inhabited by the Offspring of the Infinite Spirit, by the Trinitized Sons of glorified created personalities, and by other types of unrevealed Beings concerned with the effective administration of the many enterprises of the various realms of universe activities.
13:4.6 The executive abodes of the Seven Master Spirits are, in reality, the Paradise headquarters of the seven superuniverses and their correlated segments in outer space. Each Master Spirit presides over one superuniverse, and each of these seven worlds is exclusively assigned to one of the Master Spirits. There is literally no phase of the sub-Paradise administration of the seven superuniverses which is not provided for on these executive worlds. They are not so exclusive as the spheres of the Father or those of the Son, and though residential status is limited to native beings and those who work thereon, these seven administrative planets are always open to all beings who desire to visit them, and who can command the necessary means of transit.
13:4.7 To me, [a high Paradise-level Perfector of Wisdom] these executive [high-level ministering] worlds are the most interesting and intriguing spots outside of Paradise. In no other place in the wide universe can one observe such varied activities, involving so many different orders of living beings, having to do with operations on so many diverse levels, occupations at once material, intellectual, and spiritual. When I am accorded a period of release from assignment, if I chance to be on Paradise or in Havona, I usually proceed to one of these busy worlds of the Seven Master Spirits, there to inspire my mind with such spectacles of enterprise, devotion, loyalty, wisdom, and effectiveness. Nowhere else can I observe such an amazing interassociation of personality performances on all seven levels of universe reality. And I am always stimulated by the activities of those who well know how to do their work, and who so thoroughly enjoy doing it.
