GOD’S RELATION TO THE INDIVIDUAL
VUGRINCIC, M.D., Ph.D.
In the previous Interim-Papers we have reviewed the meanings of the TRUE WORSHIP of the Paradise Universal Father, the PRAYER SUPPLICATIONS to the realms of the Paradise Eternal Son and His Spirit of Truth, and qualified PRAYER REALIZATIONS by the spirit agencies of the Holy Spirit, the Mind of the Paradise Conjoint Actor.
The following Interim-Paper is devoted to further enlightenment about the true nature of God.
007:4 THE DIVINE
7:4.1 The Eternal Son is in everlasting liaison with the Father in the successful prosecution of the divine plan of progress : the universal plan for the creation, evolution, ascension, and perfection of will creatures. And, in divine faithfulness, the Son is the eternal equal of the Father.
7:4.2 The Father and his Son are as one in the formulation and prosecution of this gigantic attainment plan for advancing the material beings of time to the perfection of eternity. This project for the spiritual elevation of the ascendant souls of space is a joint creation of the Father and the Son, and they are, with the co-operation of the Infinite Spirit, engaged in associative execution of their divine purpose.
7:4.3 This divine plan of perfection attainment embraces three unique, though marvelously correlated, enterprises of universal adventure:
7:4.4 1. The Plan of Progressive Attainment. This is the Universal Father' s plan of evolutionary ascension, a program unreservedly accepted by the Eternal Son when he concurred in the Father's proposal, " Let us make mortal creatures in our own image. " This provision for upstepping the creatures of time involves the Father's bestowal of the Thought Adjusters and the endowing of material creatures with the prerogatives of personality.
7:4.5 2. The Bestowal
Plan. The next universal plan is the great Father-revelation enterprise
of the Eternal Son and his co-ordinate Sons. This is the proposal of the
Eternal Son and consists of his bestowal of the Sons of God upon the evolutionary
creations, there to personalize and factualize, to
incarnate and make real, the love of the Father and the mercy of the Son to
the creatures of all universes. Inherent in the bestowal plan, and as a
provisional feature of this ministration of love, the Paradise Sons act as
rehabilitators of that which misguided creature will has placed in spiritual
jeopardy. Whenever and wherever there occurs a delay in the functioning of
the attainment plan, if rebellion, perchance, should mar or complicate this
enterprise, then do the emergency provisions of the bestowal plan become
active forthwith. The
7:4.6 3. The Plan of Mercy Ministry. When the attainment plan and the bestowal plan had been formulated and proclaimed, alone and of himself, the Infinite Spirit projected and put in operation the tremendous and universal enterprise of mercy ministry. This is the service so essential to the practical and effective operation of both the attainment and the bestowal undertakings, and the spiritual personalities of the Third Source and Center all partake of the spirit of mercy ministry which is so much a part of the nature of the Third Person of Deity. Not only in creation but also in administration, the Infinite Spirit functions truly and literally as the conjoint executive of the Father and the Son.
7:4.7 The Eternal Son is the personal trustee, the divine custodian, of the Father's universal plan of creature ascension. Having promulgated the universal mandate, " Be you perfect, even as I am perfect, " the Father intrusted the execution of this tremendous undertaking to the Eternal Son; and the Eternal Son shares the fostering of this supernal enterprise with his divine co-ordinate, the Infinite Spirit. Thus do the Deities effectively co-operate in the work of creation, control, evolution, revelation, and ministration—and if required, in restoration and rehabilitation.
