Two weeks ago we began the first part of a study of Urantia Paper 120—The Bestowal of Michael on Urantia. We previously completed Paper 119—The Bestowals of Christ Michael. It seemed only right that we should read this account of the 7th and final adventure that our Universal Sovereign made here on our world. This Paper introduces the time immediately before the beginning of His life and work on Earth.
Jesus came to this world to experience his final bestowal, life as a mortal being. The 6 previous bestowals were as various higher spiritual creatures in this universe. As ruler of this creation, Michael (Jesus) stated succinctly that he came to live life on this world in order to be about His Father’s business. Said Jesus, "I am only doing the pleasure of the Paradise Sons who love and crave to understand their creatures."
Jesus was not God in association with man, but God incarnate in man. Jesus did not progressively become God; God did not at some moment become man. Jesus was God and man, always. The supreme spiritual purpose of Michael's bestowal on Urantia was to enhance the revelation of God. Through Jesus, the Father chose to manifest himself as he always does-in a usual, normal, dependable way.
This paper candidly and touchingly portrays the words of counsel and wisdom given to Michael by his elder brother Immanuel, before he began his life as a human on Urantia. That he descended from Paradise and bestowed himself as a babe of this world, is miraculous. As the spiritual hosts proclaim, "The appearance in and on your world, by apparently natural processes, of a divine Son, we regard as a miracle—the operation of universal laws beyond our understanding. Jesus of Nazareth was a miraculous person." (120:4.5)
