    Imagine Van telling the story of his half million year life on Urantia. This is chapter one of The Planetary Prince and Van the Steadfast:

    Chapter 1 – Overview

    I am Van, onetime head of Earth’s tribal coordination and racial cooperation council. I was born on a world much like, but far from Earth, died and was resurrected in the halls of Mansion World Number One, the same as you will do after the lessons of your first life, your Earth-life, have been acquired.

    Of the past 10,000 years of planetary history, you have but faint and faulty records. Of the previous 500,000 years you have mostly fossils and a few artifacts. My associates and I arrived on Earth about that time, as aides to the Planetary Prince. A prince’s regime is the first in a long line of divinely appointed administrators sent to govern and enlighten worlds where human will has finally appeared. These descending sons and daughters of God are entrusted with the education, training, and progress of ascendant children, the mortals of the realm. This is standard procedure on all inhabited spheres.

    Life begins on a planet when a specialized order of beings, the Life Carriers, formulate, implant, and foster it over hundreds of millions of years. Life Carriers do not create life; they only organize it with prevailing conditions in mind. It is God who enlivens their formulas, and God who is the primary initiator of all orders of beings.
    It was approximately one-half billion years ago when the Life Carriers implanted their formula in Earth’s shallow tidal pools. These implants introduced the first living forms, microbial creatures. Then came the oxygen-producing plants, followed by an array of animal life, and finally the first human beings, creatures of will dignity, the capacity for seeking and knowing God.

    After a planet’s life formula produces beings who have the ability to contemplate divinity, a Planetary Prince and his staff, composed of highly trained superhumans, arrive as guides and teachers. The prince is invisible to human eyes, but the members of his staff take up physical form, incarnate in bodies provided by Life Carriers. We become visible beings who can engage the native beings—as and where they are. The prince’s principal mission is to lead his staff in teaching humanity about life’s origin, history, meaning, purpose, value, and destiny, both as individuals and as a social collective. To achieve that end, the prince’s schools offer instruction in the three arenas of cosmic reality: the physical, the intellectual, and the spiritual.

    Once the prince’s group establishes rule on a world, and after civilization has been initiated, other teachers come, beings of higher and higher origin bringing greater and greater truths, refinements of the God concept, until the planet reaches its ultimate destiny, an age of Light and Life, planetary perfection.

    In the million years since the first two humans appeared on the evolutionary scene, Earth has hosted these epochal revelations. First came the prince, then Adam and Eve, followed by Melchizedek who, in turn, prepared the way for Earth’s most famous and revered visitor; the one known as Jesus of Nazareth.

    Because he will often be cited, and because he is a central figure in Earth’s history, I will preface this narrative with Jesus’ background. He is recognized in the celestial realm as Michael, father, creator, and now sovereign of all inhabited worlds in our local universe, having the name Nebadon. In the seven time-space universes there are 700,000 Creator Sons of God, the order of Michael. Each Creator Son selects a segment of space in which to create ten million unique, evolutionary planets. The Michaels also create administrators, a vast order of beings, to manage their creations.

    One order is the Lanonandek Sons, who may become Planetary Princes; others include the Adams and Eves and the Melchizedek Sons. There are yet other orders who rule the worlds in his name. Michael, as part of his experiential perfection process, is required to live—to actually incarnate—as seven of his created beings in his universe. His final self-bestowal was as a man of the Earth, son of Joseph and Mary. This bestowal provided Michael with an understanding of the human, the mortal point of view. All seven bestowals afforded him insights from both perspectives, the ascending and descending, wisdom that can only come from actual involvement in the lives of his own creatures.

    After the seven self-bestowals were completed, he was granted full sovereignty of Nebadon. This is God’s plan to ensure his Creator Sons (the Michaels) will rule perfectly, justly, compassionately and reflect the Universal Father’s ideals of perfection attainment. Your scriptural record is correct where it states God’s plan for all: “Be you perfect, even as the Father in heaven is perfect.” Upon completion of the experiential training regimen the Master Michaels rule in perfection for all to witness and someday achieve in their realm as he has in his.

    With those cosmic facts reviewed, I can better reveal Earth’s fascinating history. When the human family was well spread over Eurasia and Africa, approximately a half million years ago, Prince Caligastia was chosen to govern Earth in Michael’s name and begin the process of guiding humanity on its long journey into the ages of Light and Life. The Planetary Princes of the Lanonandek order are a type of being specially designed to initiate this service on spheres where will creatures have finally emerged. Lanonandeks are also, and by design, naturally sympathetic with, and not too far removed from humans, both intellectually and spiritually.

    Earth has a long and rich history, but so little of it is known to you. Perhaps this record will, in some measure, begin to alleviate that crippling and wisdom-depriving deficiency. The people of Earth deserve to know their origin, history, and eventual destiny.
