Jesus, the planetary prince, and evil beings

You asked: "Who is the current planetary prince of Urantia? Is Lucifer still the God of our planet? Do evil beings still have influence over our Earth or have they been sent into seclusion?"

Thank you very much for your note to us here at TruthBook. We are always happy to be of service to those who are interested in the teachings of The Urantia Book. I hope that you are also a reader of the book. If not, perhaps you'll accept my invitation to explore our site further, so that you can take advantage of this most amazing gift to humanity.

The current planetary prince of Urantia is Christ Michael of Nebadon, known to us as Jesus as Nazareth:

136:3.1Jesus had endured the great temptation of his mortal bestowal before his baptism when he had been wet with the dews of Mount Hermon for six weeks. There on Mount Hermon, as an unaided mortal of the realm, he had met and defeated the Urantia pretender, Caligastia, the prince of this world. That eventful day, on the universe records, Jesus of Nazareth had become the Planetary Prince of Urantia.
119:8.8Urantia is the sentimental shrine of all Nebadon, the chief of ten million inhabited worlds, the mortal home of Christ Michael, sovereign of all Nebadon, a Melchizedek minister to the realms, a system savior, an Adamic redeemer, a seraphic fellow, an associate of ascending spirits, a morontia progressor, a Son of Man in the likeness of mortal flesh, and the Planetary Prince of Urantia. And your record tells the truth when it says that this same Jesus has promised sometime to return to the world of his terminal bestowal, the World of the Cross.

Lucifer may have been a brilliant Son of God, but he never was considered "God" of this planet. He was a system sovereign - an administrator.

More about Lucifer:

53:0.1LUCIFER WAS A BRILLIANT primary Lanonandek Son of Nebadon. He had experienced service in many systems, had been a high counselor of his group, and was distinguished for wisdom, sagacity, and efficiency. Lucifer was number 37 of his order, and when commissioned by the Melchizedeks, he was designated as one of the one hundred most able and brilliant personalities in more than seven hundred thousand of his kind. From such a magnificent beginning, through evil and error, he embraced sin and now is numbered as one of three System Sovereigns in Nebadon who have succumbed to the urge of self and surrendered to the sophistry of spurious personal liberty—rejection of universe allegiance and disregard of fraternal obligations, blindness to cosmic relationships.

Lucifer and Satan are now imprisoned on a detention world, awaiting trial for their crimes. They are not able to influence mortals here on earth any longer. Our former planetary prince, Caligastia, IS still here, but the good of heart have nothing to fear from him:

53:8.6 The last act of Michael before leaving Urantia was to offer mercy to Caligastia and Daligastia, but they spurned his tender proffer. Caligastia, your apostate Planetary Prince, is still free on Urantia to prosecute his nefarious designs, but he has absolutely no power to enter the minds of men, neither can he draw near to their souls to tempt or corrupt them unless they really desire to be cursed with his wicked presence.

There may be those on this earth who do desire his wicked presence, but for those who do not, he is powerless to influence either their minds or their actions. This is comforting to know...
