Please, let us ask you this first question on paper 53:

601.1) 53:0.1 LUCIFER 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.

commissioned by the Melchizedeks… the Melchizedeks commissioned him (appointed him? authorized him?), but he was designated by somebody else (not by the Melchizedeks themselves) as one of the ….?

I have found this paragraph. I don't know if it has something to do with it:

(392.2) 35:8.2 Being a later and lower — as concerns divinity levels — order of sonship creation, these beings were required to pass through certain courses of training on the Melchizedek worlds in preparation for subsequent service. They were the first students in the Melchizedek University and were classified and certified by their Melchizedek teachers and examiners according to ability, personality, and attainment.

Hi Ángel, I don’t see why Lucifer wasn’t designated etc. by the Melchizedeks. The sentence can be read: "when commissioned by the Melchizedeks, he was designated by them as one of the one hundred most able and brilliant personalities in more than seven hundred thousand of his kind.."
