URANTIA - A FALSE OCCULT BOOK, FILLED WITH DECEPTION
"For they prophesy falsely to you in My name; I have not sent them, declares the Lord." - Jeremiah 29:9
By Synthia Esther
There are other words of knowledge presented by many cults and occult prophets, mediums, and psychics. One such word is the New Age, occult Urantia book (UB). God gave us clear direction in His Word, the Holy Bible concerning such matters.
"I warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will add to him the plagues described in this book of prophecy, God will take away from him his share in the tree of life and in the holy city, which are described in this book.” - Revelation 22:18-19
“Dear Friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the anti-christ, which you have heard is coming even now is already in the world.” - 1 John 4:1-5.
THE NEW AGE BIBLE – URANTIA AND FALSE SAVIOR “MICHAEL”
With God's warning issued, note that many New Age believers claim their bible to be, “Urantia,” the name given by this word and writing for our planet earth. The UB, claims in blasphemy, our world's savior to be “Michael.” First published by the Urantia Foundation in 1955, the writings are said to have been presented by celestial beings as a revelation to our planet. Another words, this New Age bible was delivered by means of a medium through channeled communication. Such is the doctrine of demons, termed as "Seducing Spirits" (1st Timothy 4:1).
There is much information linking the UB to the Seventh Day Adventist Church (SDA) sect, and its founder, Ellen G. White, who also claimed the Angel Michael, as Savior, just as the UB claims. In his 2008 book, "The Great Cult Mystery", Martin Gardner, provides educated, investigated, researched conclusions that are thought provoking. Plagiarized sources, says Gardner, were used by those who wrote the UB. Who he claims were non-other than SDA believers, Psychiatrist, William S. Sadler (1875-1969), and his shy, unassuming brother in-law, Wilfred Custer Kellogg (1876-1956), who in his sleep served as the "conduit" used by said Urantia Supermortals to communicate (channel) their revelations to Sadler. Perhaps Gardner's choice for the title of this book was a spin off from E.G. White (Ellen White), and her book, "The Great Controversy" - Between Christ and Satan, Harvest Time Books, 1988.
The Christian Research Institute (CRI), also took note of Gardner's UB whisleblower book, as reported by Eric Pemont (Articles ID: DU164), retrieved from their website on 6/5/2015. Pemont writes about the UB's obvious, false and erroneous scientific claims:
"If the UB really were an extraterrestial revelation, it should accurately describe our universe. It fails miserably. The UB claims our universe is over one trillion years old; most scientist date it at about 15 billion years. The temperature it assigns to the Sun's surface is off by thousands of degrees. ; it falsely says that Mercury keeps the same face towards the Sun. The UB teaches that humans have 48 chromosomes; it should be 46. Atoms cannot possess more than 100 electrons; this 'limit' was broken in 1955, as any periodic table will confirm."
Paper 66 of the Urantia writings as noted:
"To the children of a local universe a Michael son is, to all practical intents and purposes, God. He is the local universe personification of the Universal Father and the Eternal Son. The Infinite Spirit maintains personal contact with the children of these realms through the Universe spirits, the administrative and creative associates of the Paradise Creator Sons."
The 11:11 Midwayer term and connection to Urantia is primarily found within paper 77:
"Most of the inhabited worlds of Nebadon harbor one or more groups of unique beings existing on a life-functioning level about midway between those of the mortals of the realms and of the angelic orders; hence are they called midway creatures. They appear to be an accident of time, but they occur so widespread and are so valuable as helpers that we have all long since accepted them as one of the essential orders of our combined planetary ministry."
As Christians, we do not depend upon Midwayers as our helpers. For we are blessed with the power of the Holy Spirit of God, who is our true comforter, helper, and the Spirit of Truth (John 14:16-17). Jesus Christ is our true Father, God, Savior, Creator, and Ruler of the Universe. There is only one gateway into our Father's presence, and that is through His son, Jesus Christ.
"I am the Lord, and there is no other. I form the light and create darkness, I bring prosperity and create disaster; I, the Lord, do all these things." - Isaiah 45:6-7
"It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it. My own hands stretched out the heavens; I marshaled their starry hosts." - Isaiah 45:12
"Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.” - Matthew 7:13-14
“Blessed are those who wash their robes, that they may have right to the tree of life and may go through the gates into the city.” - Revelation 22:14
The gate God's word gives reference to, is for His Children, as they have accepted Him as their Savior. There is no other entrance into Heaven, except through Jesus Christ our Lord:
“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” - Acts 4:12
Jesus Answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” - John 14:6
“Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent.” - John 17:3
“This righteousness from God comes through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe.” - Romans 3:22
"Whoever turns a sinner from the error of his way will save him from death and cover over a multitide of sins." - James 5:19-20
