Michael of Nebadon:
Abraham was considered the father of all nations. It was this honorable man that changed the course of history. If Abraham had not listened to Machiventa Melchizedek he would have been a great king but his glory would have ended abruptly. His mental prowess is unmatched in history and his faith in God is so sublime he never wanted ‘doubt’ to get in the way of his relationship with God at any point. This is the reason for the story around his sacrifice of his son. What was true was his solid and abiding faith in the Lord God.
As a father, Abraham showed his love and respect for all peoples. He made his covenant with God and as he promised gathered his people as a good shepherd showing them the ways of the Lord. The history of the Israelites began in earnest during these times and the prophecy was fulfilled in that Abraham became the ‘father of all nations’.
The long history of Abraham is intertwined with the involvement of Machiventa Melchizedek in his decisions especially as Abraham was a powerful ruler and with his army he wanted to subdue the surrounding regions. It was only the persuasive disapproval of Machiventa that he did not pursue his ambitions.
The teachings of Machiventa in that period of history laid the foundation of the truth about the Kingdom of God. Machiventa taught that God wanted only to see that His children had enough faith to believe in His love and have trust in His boundless goodness. This was the faith that Abraham practiced and that is why God looked down upon him with favor. Mortals of that time had a hard time believing this simple truth and even to this day people find it incredible that the Universal Father is a Father who loves and cares for his children unconditionally. And this is the crux of my own teaching and my own love. Have no doubt about this children of Urantia. There is only this kind of love which pervades the whole universe and it is here with you now as you live your days in the flesh and as you will live it in the spirit. This is the Kingdom of God within you and without you, if you will but receive it in your heart. Michael.
