Our Universal Father is absolutely and without qualification infinite in all His attributes. “Touching the infinite, we cannot find Him out. His divine footsteps are not known.” “His understanding is infinite and His greatness is unsearchable.” The blinding light of our Father’s presence is such that to us — as His lowly creatures — He apparently “dwells in the thick darkness.” Not only are His thoughts and plans unsearchable, but “He does great and marvelous things without number.” “God is great; we comprehend Him not, neither can the number of His years be searched out.” “Will God indeed dwell on the earth? Behold, the heaven of heavens cannot contain Him.” “How unsearchable are His judgments and His ways past finding out!” “All praise be to God, the Cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds.”
“There is but one God, our Infinite Father, Who is also our Faithful Creator.” “Our Divine Creator is also our universal Disposer, the Source and Destiny of our souls. He is the Supreme Soul, the Primal Mind, and the Unlimited Spirit of all glory.” “Our Creator God is wholly devoid of fear and enmity. He is immortal, eternal, self-existent, divine, and bountiful.” “How pure and beautiful, how deep and unfathomable is our Supernal Ancestor of all things!” “Our Infinite Father is most excellent in that He imparts Himself to our mortal minds. He is the beginning and the end, He is the Father of every good and perfect purpose.” “With God all things are possible, our Eternal Creator is the cause of causes.”
Notwithstanding the infinity of the stupendous manifestations of our Father’s eternal and universal personality, He is unqualifiedly self-conscious of both His infinity and eternity; likewise, He knows fully His perfection and power. He is Who experiences a perfect, proper, and complete appraisal of Himself. Our Father constantly and unfailingly meets the need of the differential of demand for Himself as it changes from time to time in various sections of His master universe.
Our Great God knows and understands Himself; He is infinitely self-conscious of all His primal attributes of perfection. God is not a cosmic accident; neither is He a universe experimenter. Our Universal Father sees the end from the beginning, and His divine plan and eternal purpose actually embrace and comprehend all the experiments and all the adventures of all His subordinate personalities in the totality of His vast domains.
Our Universal Father is absolutely and without qualification infinite in all His attributes. This fact, in and of itself, automatically shuts Him off from direct personal communication with any of us as His finite material beings. Resultantly, this necessitates such arrangements for contact and communication with all of us, and all others of His manifold creatures, as have been ordained:
First, in the created personalities of His Paradise Sons, who, although perfect in divinity, also often partake of the nature of the very flesh and blood of the planetary races, becoming one of us and one with us — as occurred in the bestowal of the Paradise Creator Son, Michael, the sovereign creator of our residential universe, Nebadon; and who was called interchangeably the Son of God (Michael of Nebadon) and the Son of Man (Jesus of Nazareth); thus as it were, God acting through man;
Second, there are the personalities of the Infinite Spirit, who in Nebadon is represented by the Nebadon Holy Spirit, and the various orders of the seraphic hosts and other celestial intelligences who draw near us as the material beings of lowly origin and in so many ways minister to us and serve us; and
Third, there are the impersonal fragmentized spirits — the Thought Adjusters — the actual gift of that fragment of pure Deity of God Himself, sent to indwell our mortal minds, sent without announcement and without explanation, and there bring forth our capacity for God-consciousness or the potential therefor.
In these ways and in many others, in ways unknown to us and utterly beyond our finite comprehension, does our Paradise Father lovingly and willingly downstep and otherwise modify, dilute, and attenuate His infinity in order that He may be able to draw nearer our finite minds. Through a series of personality distributions which are diminishingly absolute, our Infinite Father is enabled to enjoy close contact with (us) His creature children, and all the others of His diverse limitless intelligences of the many realms of His far-flung master universe.
And all this He has done and now does, and evermore will continue to do, without in the least bit detracting from the fact and reality of His infinity, eternity, and primacy. And these things are absolutely true, notwithstanding the difficulty of their comprehension, the mystery in which they are enshrouded, or the impossibility of their being fully understood by creatures such as our lowly selves that dwell here on this planet Urantia.
Our Father being infinite in His plans and eternal in His purposes, it is inherently impossible for any of us as finite beings ever to grasp or comprehend these divine plans and purposes in their fullness. As mortals we can glimpse our Father’s purposes only now and then, here and there, as they are revealed in relation to the outworking of our own plan of spiritual ascension as it passes through its successive levels of universe progression.
Even though that fragment of pure Deity which presently indwells your mortal mind IS a part of His infinity, and though we cannot encompass the significance of His infinitude, our infinite Father does most certainly fully comprehend and lovingly embrace all our finity. Infinity of personality must, perforce, embrace all finitude of personality; hence, the truth-the literal truth — “In Him we live and move and have our being.”
