Are the angels militaristic?

Q: I have a feeling this is not going to be posted, but nevertheless I'd like an answer. Quote: "The destiny guardian of the human subject used in this contactual communication is number 3 of group 17, of company 126, of battalion 4, of unit 384, of legion 6, of host 37, of the 182, 314th seraphic army of Nebadon." WHY is it that everything which comes from America has to do with some type of "cataloging in military form?" After reading that before going phrase I was seriously expecting to read the class A typical USA thing "OPERATION URANTIA"... To my amazement it wasnt there...

A: I want to thank you for your note to Truthbook. This complex classification of angels seems to be a stumbling block for you. The text of the passage you mention is copied here:

All seraphim have individual names, but in the records of assignment to world service they are frequently designated by their planetary numbers. At the universe headquarters they are registered by name and number. The destiny guardian of the human subject used in this contactual communication is number 3 of group 17, of company 126, of battalion 4, of unit 384, of legion 6, of host 37, of the 182, 314th seraphic army of Nebadon. The current planetary assignment number of this seraphim on Urantia and to this human subject is 3, 641, 852. (113:2.6)

This is from the section called: "The Destiny Guardians"in Paper 113. This paper deals with Guardian Angels and other angelic personalities as they function throughout the universe, and on our planet. You may find this description a sort of "cataloging in military form, " and I guess it is that, but to me, it is a really interesting way to tell us how the legions of angels are arranged. And, these angels have to be arranged some way. There are so many of them, it makes sense to me that they are part of an angelic "army, " or "host." This might even be the pattern for all armies, and our earthly militarists adopted it from THEM. Just a guess, but I wonder...

You seem to be under the impression that The Urantia Book is an American invention. Let me assure you that it is not. The Urantia Book was delivered to the world—not just America. The fact that it was delivered IN America is presumably because that is where the revelators felt that it would receive the widest eventual distribution. They considered the English language the best earthly language to present it, but it is now translated into about 14 languages as well.

The book was given in the words of the authors—it was not changed or adapted to American tastes, and The Urantia Book is not a product of any American minds. It is a revelation for the world, and for YOU. The fact that you have found it is a blessing to you, if you have the ears to hear. I hope that you will take the gift that has been given to you and explore it fully before you reject it.
