28:5.19 (313.1) 7. The Discerner of Spirits. A special liaison exists between the counselors and advisers of the second Havona circle and these reflective angels. They are the only seconaphim attached to the Universal Censors but are probably the most uniquely specialized of all their fellows. Regardless of the source or channel of information, no matter how meager the evidence at hand, when it is subjected to their reflective scrutiny, these discerners will forthwith inform us as to the true motive, the actual purpose, and the real nature of its origin. I marvel at the superb functioning of these angels, who so unerringly reflect the actual moral and spiritual character of any individual concerned in a focal exposure.
28:5.20 (313.2) The Discerners of Spirits carry on these intricate services by virtue of inherent “spiritual insight,” if I may use such words in an endeavor to convey to the human mind the thought that these reflective angels thus function intuitively, inherently, and unerringly. When the Universal Censors behold these presentations, they are face to face with the naked soul of the reflected individual; and this very certainty and perfection of portraiture in part explains why the Censors can always function so justly as righteous judges.
The discerners always accompany the Censors on any mission away from Uversa, and they are just as effective out in the universes as at their Uversa headquarters.
28:6.13 (315.6) 4. The Solemnity of Trust. Trust is the crucial test of will creatures. Trustworthiness is the true measure of self-mastery, character. These seconaphim accomplish a double purpose in the economy of the superuniverses: They portray to all will creatures the sense of the obligation, sacredness, and solemnity of trust. At the same time they unerringly reflect to the governing authorities the exact trustworthiness of any candidate for confidence or trust.
17:3.2 [Part I]
The Reflective Spirits have names, but these designations are not revealed on the worlds of space. They pertain to the nature and character of these beings and are a part of one of the seven universal mysteries of the secret spheres of Paradise.
17:3.3 [Part I]
The attribute of reflectivity, the phenomenon of the mind levels of the Conjoint Actor, the Supreme Being, and the Master Spirits, is transmissible
to all beings concerned in the working of this vast scheme of universal intelligence. And herein is a great mystery: Neither the Master Spirits nor the Paradise Deities, singly or collectively, disclose these powers of co-ordinate universal reflectivity just as they are manifested in these forty-nine liaison personalities of Majeston, and yet they are the creators of all these marvelously endowed beings. Divine heredity does sometimes disclose in the creature certain attributes which are not discernible in the Creator.
17:3.4 [Part I]
The personnel of the reflectivity service, with the exception of Majeston and the Reflective Spirits, are all the creatures of the Infinite Spirit and his immediate associates and subordinates. The Reflective Spirits of each superuniverse are the creators of their Reflective Image Aids, their personal voices to the courts of the Ancients of Days.
17:3.5 [Part I]
The Reflective Spirits are not merely transmitting agents; they are retentive personalities as well.
Their offspring, the seconaphim, are also retentive or record personalities. Everything of true spiritual value is registered in duplicate, and one impression is preserved in the personal equipment of some member of one of the numerous orders of secoraphic personalities belonging to the vast staff of the Reflective Spirits.
17:3.6 [Part I]
The formal records of the universes are passed up by and through the angelic recorders, but the true spiritual records are assembled by reflectivity and are preserved in the minds of suitable and appropriate personalities belonging to the family of the Infinite Spirit. These are the live records in contrast with the formal and dead records of the universe, and they are perfectly preserved in the living minds of the recording personalities of the Infinite Spirit.
Me here: The circuits operate at every level of universe organization and in all its constituent parts if sourced in Paradise. The functionality of the circuits is applicable at the Super and Local Universe levels and is an important element in the organization, creation, management, development, and progress at every level of these time and space progressive and perfecting regions. So any thought or belief or claim that anything might by unknown or mysterious or secret or secreted or secretable or misunderstood or inaccurate or otherwise incomplete or inaccurate is a falsehood.
All may not be known or knowable by all but it certainly is known by some and is transmittable and transferrable to any by focalization within in any gravity circuit....and all that is known and knowable is duly recorded and archived and retrievable and transmittable at any time to any mind in any place by reflectivity. There can be no doubt as to the certainty of God's knowing and knowledge and the fact of this knowledge related to all beings and all things in all time and all space since all beginnings and before those beginnings and for all of eternity and all of eternity to come.
There are those pitiful voices and minds who have attended and posted here which endlessly lament their claimed unreliability and uncertainty of fairness, mercy, testimony, knowledge, fact, etc. in the ministry of justice in heaven and those who accuse the celestial hosts and our universe and planetary rulers of very human weaknesses and failures. Pity for them who lack the assurance of faith and truth and wallow in such darkness, doubt, suspicion, fear, anxiety, and paranoia. For nothing could be more impossible!! Nothing could be further from reality!!
And this is the message of the Jesusonian Gospel and of the FER....we may trust and be assured that love rules the universe and we are family in a friendly and Divinely organized and managed universe of grand adventure and progress. We may be certain of that and act accordingly! May all the doubters and anxious folk come to the light of this great truth and good news!
This is why I claim and how I came to know that it is a good thing that God knows everything. For he knows us by his love for us and his kindness and mercy and patience is that of a loving parent who nurtures and guides their beloved children through all the errors and mistakes inherent in learning better and better by trial and error to excel and grow and gain strength and capability by experiential maturity and the perfecting that time delivers to all beings....potential is not realized without a struggle and volitional victory that only maturity by experience might deliver.
We are given that time by our loving parents...sufficient time and opportunity to overcome the imperfections of immaturity and inexperience. We are judged by our hopes and ideals and the flicker that leads us forward toward the greater light within and we are not judged harshly or quickly or unkindly or unfairly. How does one judge a child for being childish? Consider the age appropriate standard for our own children. Do they run before they walk or walk before they stand? Neither does the soul. Do our heavenly parents judge us more strictly than we judge our own children? Indeed not...just the opposite in fact....we are judged even more patiently and kindly and lovingly as we grow.
17:3.7 [Part I]
The reflectivity organization is also the news-gathering and the decree-disseminating mechanism of all creation.
It is in constant operation in contrast with the periodic functioning of the various broadcast services.
17:3.8 [Part I]
Everything of import transpiring on a local universe headquarters is inherently reflected
to the capital of its superuniverse. And conversely, everything of local universe significance is reflected
outward to the local universe capitals from the headquarters of their superuniverse. The reflectivity service from the universes of time up to the superuniverses is apparently automatic or self-operating, but it is not. It is all very personal and intelligent; its precision results
from perfection of personality co-operation and therefore can hardly be attributed to the impersonal presence-performances of the Absolutes.
17:3.9 [Part I]
While Thought Adjusters do not participate in the operation of the universal reflectivity system, we have every reason to believe that all Father fragments are fully cognizant of these transactions and are able to avail themselves of their content.
28:6.14 (316.1) On Urantia, you grotesquely essay to read character and to estimate specific abilities,
but on Uversa we actually do these things in perfection. These seconaphim weigh trustworthiness in the living scales of unerring character appraisal,
and when they have looked at you, we have only to look at them to know the limitations of your ability to discharge responsibility, execute trust, and fulfill missions.
Your assets of trustworthiness are clearly set forth alongside your liabilities of possible default or betrayal.
28:6.15 (316.2) It is the plan of your superiors to advance you by augmented trusts just as fast as your character is sufficiently developed to gracefully bear these added responsibilities,
but to overload the individual only courts disaster and insures disappointment. And the mistake of placing responsibility prematurely upon either man or angel may be avoided by utilizing the ministry of these infallible estimators of the trust capacity of the individuals of time and space. These seconaphim ever accompany Those High in Authority, and never do these executives make assignments until their candidates have been weighed in the secoraphic balances and pronounced “not wanting.”
Me here: So our very progress and perfecting proceeds according to the function of 'knowing'. We are advanced by this knowing far more than we might be 'judged' by the knowing. We are measured and weighed by the quantity and quality of our experience and we are trusted and tested according to the 'knowing' of our capacity and capability. Remember helping our babies to sit up and stand and our toddlers to walk and to throw a ball and then throw it straight and true? Remember the thrill they and we enjoyed? That's what the 'knowing' is all about! To teach and nurture and share the thrill of such victory!! It's a good thing, a very good thing indeed!
