OUR IMMINENT SERVICE
THE VEIL HAS BEEN TORN ASIDE
As given to
The veil has been torn aside. It is no
longer the advent of the
Antichrist. He is here, now, amongst you,
sitting gleefully upon his
throne. It is time for the Sons of God to come
together. This period
will be very intense , but short, ending in the year
2000. You will
witness *evil* the likes of which your mind could
conceive. It is not necessary to make physical
preparation. You will
be surrounded by a cloak of spiritual tranquility
and love. Fear not!
This has been your purpose. You have our love and
protection. "We will
foster and conserve the higher spiritual types."
the veil as that lack of perception in which God held his people for 2,000
years. It was necessary to unfolding planetary destiny that man not
jeopardize God's plan. Therefore, although he made these events known to
us in various historic revelations, he did not make them discernible to
us. Only within the past few years has this revelation been opened to us.
I did not begin to understand these episodes until around 1990. Although I
was aware of the dangers of Caligastia from my fundamentalist childhood,
until now I did not perceive how he would come into power. The several
revelations in the Bible were an uncoordinated mixture of elements which I
could not properly put together. Then it began to slowly dawn on me how
this was going to unfold. Members of the local Urantia groups in the
Baltimore-Washington area watched my awareness develop and eventually
concluded I had been carried away with my intensity. Urantians such as
Preston Thomas, Stevie Shaefer, Buddy Roogow, Ellen Walker and others can
testify to this personal development.
Hence, I can
personally witness to the manner in which the veil has been torn aside.
The key is
captured in one simple phrase, "Spirit Entry Into Human Mind." Until I had
clarified this concept I do not believe another human mortal had grasped
the consequence of such spiritual transactions. Two thousand years of
Christianity, and forty years of the Urantia community, failed to capture
the mechanism by which Caligastia can wreck his havoc.
varied and assorted interpretations of the biblical material were offered
by Christians over the centuries. They still struggle, assigning the
revelation episodes to a malevolent personality who takes on mortal form,
who "sits on a throne in the Temple" bringing world dictatorship, who uses
the number 666 for his identification, and so on, and so on. Most
conspiracy theories are woven around such concept, including the use of
the United Nations to rule the world.
interpretations are all "political" in that they assume this evil
personality will take up an earthly throne, and assume world political, as
well as evil spiritual rule.
for this view is found in remarks Paul made in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12 but,
through mistranslation, this passage has totally befuddled Christian
understanding. I shall discuss this problem in depth in this series of
Now that God
has opened revelation we can find a different view. This crucial
difference is why I am so adamantly opposed to wild and imaginative

can determine, the coming persecutions will take place under a functional
social environment. The social circumstances will not deteriorate to
rampant police or military slaughter. The slaughter will come from
Caligastia's agents, operating under his spirit control, because they gave
themselves to him. Society continues, and most citizen's accept it.
operations will take place within a functional society is unknown to me.
Why would society tolerate such activities? Does a new-age President also
become part of that cadre, issuing decrees which permit them to go about
their deadly work? I do not know. These details are unrevealed.
We also do
not know if economic circumstances may deteriorate to the point that
dictatorial imposition will be necessary by national governments to
maintain social order. Such imposition is suggested by John's Revelation,
in Chapter 13, and the description of a "small beast" with gentle
appearance but which wields great power. The corrupt description suggests
an image of computers. As I showed in other posts, the number 666 already
is used universally as the UPC, the Universal Product Code, and we all are
subject to that computer tool when we buy and sell. The other feature of
computer social control is the Social Security, or Coded Card,
identification now used well nigh universally around the world to
coordinate and centralize information for governments and institutions. We
cannot buy or sell without such number. Other than this short piece in
John's Revelation we have no evidence for dictatorial social control. John
may not have intended more than to describe the secular and godless
economic and government control through computers under which we all now
operate, even though his images carry sinister portent.

quote from a text which is not found in any modern edition of the Bible,
but which is found in ancient manuscripts. In centuries past this passage
was included in Bible printings, but in the past two centuries this
passage has been excised from the text.
Mark 16: (14-15) And they excused themselves, saying that this age of lawlessness and unbelief is under Satan, who, through the agency of unclean spirits, does not allow the true power of God to be apprehended. Wherefore, they said to Christ, 'reveal now Thy righteousness.' And Christ said to them, 'The limit of the years of Satan's authority has been fulfilled, but other terrors draw near, and I am delivered up of death on behalf of those that have sinned, that they may be turned to the truth and sin no more, so that they may inherit the spiritual and incorruptible glory of righteousness in heaven.'

remark that ". . . a few authorities insert additional material after
verse 14," but does not quote the text.

commentary, not as something that was part of the original Mark gospel.
passage is highly disturbing; it makes specific assignment of the
activities of the Devil. That assignment is in the sordid practices of
spiritualism and spiritism, the agency of unclean spirits. The spirits are
unclean (sordid) because they enter human mind. Modern men are unwilling
to accept that evil spirit personalities might work through human mind.
confusion exists on the role of "Satan." If his authority has been
"fulfilled," how can he be connected to "other terrors" which draw near?
passage, because of its relegation to obscurity, was a key element in
maintaining the veil God placed upon his revelations.
This text is
quoted in the International Critical Commentary under the section
dealing with John 16:11. It also appears in the exhaustive critical
edition of The Greek New Testament by Kurt Aland, Matthew Black,
Carlo Martini, Bruce Metzgar, and Allen Wikgren, published by the United
Bible Societies, 1968, who included reference to all Greek manuscripts
known to that date.

impending 'terrors' may be the persecutions foretold in John 16:2-3."
is exactly what is going on.
The text in
John, runs as follows:
2 They will put you out of the synagogues; indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God.
3 And they will do this because they have not known the Father, nor me.
4 But I
have said these things to you, that when their hour comes you may remember
that I told you of them. I did not say these things to you from the
beginning, because I was with you.
text in the Urantia Papers, offering the same warning, may be found on
Christians believe this passage refers to early Christian persecutions.
The phrase "put you out of the synagogues" suggests Jewish persecutions.
No Christian will assign this to Roman persecutions because the statement
is made that these malevolent forces are "offering service to God." The
pagan Romans would not be offering service to "God." Only the Jews would
have brought persecutions to offer their service to God is suppressing the
As I show on
my web site, this assignment to Jewish persecution is also fallacious. The
ferocious persecutions against the new sect were conducted by Paul, but he
barely started when Jesus appeared to him on the road to Damascus, and
terminated that activity. His conversion turned him directly opposite. He
became a proponent of the new belief, rather than its persecutor.
appearance by Jesus not only stopped Paul dead in his tracks; it also
stifled further efforts by the Jewish authorities to suppress the new
sect. Paul was their fair-haired boy, a young man when he ordered the
stoning of Stephen, Acts 7:58. Immediately thereafter Paul sought and was
granted letters of authority to round up members of the new sect who had
scattered to various places, Acts 9:2, 11:19. But the extraordinary
experience of Paul scared the living daylights out of Jewish authorities.
Many of the Sanhedrin then came to fear they might be in rebellion against
God. Unfortunately, discussion of these matters are not included in Luke's
text in Acts. Also, it appears that later Christians, working under the
burden that the biblical text was speaking of early Jewish persecutions,
did not rigorously examine the consequences of Paul's conversion. That
aftermath must be deduced from the unfolding of events.
remember that the apostles continued to live in Jerusalem, worshiping the
new way, preaching and teaching, directly under the nose of Jewish
authorities. Paul later visited with them in Jerusalem, Acts 15:2-4. A man
named Philip openly proselytized in Caesarea, with a group of disciples,
Acts 21. Thus, the Jewish persecutions were limited to the earliest days
and were later discontinued. After the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD
there was no Sanhedrin, nor were there Jewish authorities to bring such
persecutions. Only here and there, scattered in other countries, were a
few Christians persecuted by Jews. They became the "martyrs" of such
famous reputation. But on the whole, Jewish persecutions were not
organized and were not widespread.
intensity of the historic persecutions described in the book of Acts,
including Paul's remarks, must be weighed in the light of this practical
remarks of Jesus in John 16:2 then apply to those persecutions, or did
Jesus intend some other episode in world destiny? Did the Catholic
Inquisition fit this description? Did other Christian persecutions?
of a unique episode that derived from "Satan." Historic religious
persecutions did not fulfill this prophecy.
The agency of the coming terror is through Unclean Spirits.
