A Message For The Now Generation

(Words Of Christ from The Urantia Book)

Peace on earth and
good will to all men and women!

The spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
for the Lord has anointed me; he has sent me to bring good
news to the meek, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the
captives, and to set the spiritual prisoners free; to proclaim the year of
God’s favor and the day of our God’s reckoning.

I promise that I will sometime return to this world,
but only the eye of the spirit will behold the Son of Man
glorified by the Father and appearing on earth in his own name.
But the times of the reappearing of the Son of Man are known only in
the councils of Paradise; not even the angels of heaven know when this will occur.
However, you should understand, that when this gospel of the kingdom shall have
been proclaimed to all the world for the salvation of all peoples, and when the
fullness of the age has come to pass, the Father will send you another
dispensational bestowal, or else the Son of Man will return to adjudge the age.

But you should be wise regarding the ripening of an age;
you should be alert to discern the signs of the times.
When the world has passed through the long winter of material-mindedness
and you discern the coming of the spiritual springtime of a new dispensation,
should you know that the summertime of a new visitation draws near.
And this will be a new beginning out of which the gospel of the kingdom
will go to all the world and this salvation will spread to all peoples.
And when the kingdom shall have come to its full fruition, be assured that the
Father in heaven will not fail to visit you with an enlarged revelation of
truth and an enhanced demonstration of righteousness.

You must cease to think about yourself and your own personal problems while you
prepare to carry the Good News of the gospel to those who sit in darkness.
No longer should you be concerned with what you may obtain from the kingdom but
rather be more concerned about what you can give to those who live in spiritual
poverty. Gird yourself for the battle of a new day, the struggle with spiritual
darkness. It is your faith that saves your souls. Salvation is the gift of God
to all who believe they are his children.

There is but one law to obey — that is the command to go forth proclaiming the
good news concerning the love of the heavenly Father for his children on earth.

So go into all the world proclaiming
this gospel to all nations, to every man,
woman, and child. Liberate spiritual captives, strengthen those
who are fainthearted and fear-ridden,
proclaim joy to the socially downtrodden, comfort the oppressed,
minister to the sick, and confirm believers in this new faith of
religious freedom, spiritual liberty and eternal salvation.

And I will be with you always, even to the ends of the earth.

And my peace I leave with you.
