(610.6) 53:9.1 Early in the days of the Lucifer rebellion, salvation was offered all rebels by Michael. To all who would show proof of sincere repentance, he offered, upon his attainment of complete universe sovereignty, forgiveness and reinstatement in some form of universe service. None of the leaders accepted this merciful proffer. But thousands of the angels and the lower orders of celestial beings, including hundreds of the Material Sons and Daughters, accepted the mercy proclaimed by the Panoptians and were given rehabilitation at the time of Jesus’ resurrection nineteen hundred years ago. These beings have since been transferred to the Father’s world of Jerusem, where they must be held, technically, until the Uversa courts hand down a decision in the matter of Gabriel vs. Lucifer. But no one doubts that, when the annihilation verdict is issued, these repentant and salvaged personalities will be exempted from the decree of extinction. These probationary souls now labor with the Panoptians in the work of caring for the Father’s world.

These beings have since been transferred to the Father’s world of Jerusem: According to the sentence, it seems that they are still being transfered, am I correct?

technically: please, what does it mean here "legally"? "officially"? as we saw (technical) in a previous paragraph? or strictly speaking?

Hi Ángel, No, if "they are still being transferred", then the phrase would read: "they are since being transferred to Jerusem". They "have since been transferred" implies that they were transferred and now are (held) on Jerusem.

I think "technically" here (again) means "legally" or "officially" or "formally". According to formal rules or laws they must be held. This is also indicates by the next sentence: "But no one doubts that, when the annihilation verdict is issued, these repentant and salvaged personalities will be exempted from the decree of extinction." (53:9.1)..
