Series 1 THE EMERGENCY CORPS ---- The Reserve Corps of Destiny (Pg. 1257)

This is the first in a series of articles written to convey information that heretofore has not been
revealed to the general population except through the efforts of the Urantia Organizations. It is
intended, in part, to break the isolation imposed on this world by a rebellion that started several
hundred thousand years ago with the isolation set into effect about 2,000 years ago.

   “The reserve corps of destiny consists of living men and women who have been admitted to the
special service of the superhuman administration of world affairs. This corps is made up of men and
women of each generation who are chosen by the spirit directors of the realm to assist in the conduct
of the ministry of mercy and wisdom to the children of time on the evolutionary worlds. It is the
general practice in the conduct of the ascension plans to begin this liaison utilization of mortal will
creatures immediately they become competent and trustworthy to assume such responsibilities.
Accordingly, as soon as men and women appear on the stage of temporal action with sufficient
mental capacity, adequate moral status, and requisite spirituality, they are quickly assigned to the
appropriate celestial group of planetary personalities as human liaisons, mortal assistants.
   When human beings are chosen as protectors of planetary destiny, when they become pivotal
individuals in the plans which the world administrators are prosecuting, at that time the planetary
chief of seraphim confirms their temporal attachment to the seraphic corps and appoints personal
destiny guardians to serve with these mortal reservists. All reservists have self-conscious Adjusters,
and most of them function in the higher cosmic circles of intellectual achievement and spiritual
   Mortals of the realm are chosen for service in the corps of destiny on the inhabited worlds because
   1.   Special capacity for being secretly rehearsed for numerous possible emergency missions in
the conduct of various activities of world affairs.
   2.   Whole hearted dedication to some special social, economic, political, spiritual, or other cause,
coupled with willingness to serve without human recognition and rewards.
   3.   The possession of a Thought Adjuster of extraordinary versatility and probable pre-Urantia
experience in coping with planetary difficulties and contending with impending world emergency
   Each division of planetary celestial service is entitled to a liaison corps of these mortals of destiny
standing. The average inhabited world employs seventy separate corps of destiny, which are
intimately connected with the superhuman current conduct of world affairs. On Urantia there are
twelve reserve corps of destiny, one for each of the planetary groups of seraphic supervision.
   The twelve groups of Urantia destiny reservists are composed of mortal inhabitants of the sphere
who have been rehearsed for numerous crucial positions on earth and are held in readiness to act in
possible planetary emergencies. This combined corps now consists of 962 persons. The smallest
corps numbers 41 and the largest 172. With the exception of less than a score of contact
personalities, the members of this unique group are wholly unconscious of their preparation for
possible function in certain planetary crises. These mortal reservists are chosen by the corps to
which they are respectively attached and are likewise trained and rehearsed in the deep mind by the
combined technique of Thought Adjuster and seraphic guardian ministry. Many times numerous other
celestial personalities participate in this unconscious training, and in all this special preparation the
midwayers perform valuable and indispensable services.
   On many worlds the better adapted secondary midway creatures are able to attain varying
degrees of contact with the Thought Adjusters of certain favorably constituted mortals through the
skillful penetration of the minds of the latter’s indwelling. (And it was by just such a fortuitous
combination of cosmic adjustments that these revelations were materialized in the English language
on Urantia) Such potential contact mortals of evolutionary worlds are mobilized in the numerous
reserve corps, and it is, to a certain extent, through these small groups of forward-looking
personalities that spiritual civilization is advanced and the Most Highs are able to rule in the kingdoms
of men. The men and women of these reserve corps of destiny thus have various degrees of contact
with their Adjusters through the intervening ministry of the midway creatures; but these same mortals
are little known to their fellows except in those rare social emergencies and spiritual exigencies
wherein these reserve personalities function for the prevention of the breakdown of evolutionary
culture or the extinction of the light of living truth. On Urantia these reservists of destiny have seldom
been emblazoned on the pages of human history…”
   “(The cosmic reserve corps of universe-conscious citizens on Urantia now numbers over one
thousand mortals whose insight of cosmic citizenship far transcends the sphere of their terrestrial
abode, but I am forbidden to reveal the real nature of the function of this unique group of living
human beings)”
   “Urantia mortals should not allow the comparative spiritual isolation of their world from certain of
the local universe circuits to produce a feeling of cosmic desertion or planetary orphanage. There is
operative on the planet a very definite and effective superhuman supervision of world affairs and
human destinies…”
   “Your isolated world is not forgotten in the counsels of the universe, Urantia is not a cosmic orphan
stigmatized by sin and shut away from divine watchcare by rebellion. From Uversa to Salvington and
on down to Jerusem even in Havona and on Paradise, they all know we are here; and you mortals
now dwelling on Urantia are just as lovingly cherished and just as faithfully watched over as if the
sphere had never been betrayed by a faithless Planetary Prince, even more so. It is eternally true,
“the Father himself loves you.”

By now most of us must have certainly recognize the need for a mortal reserve corps of destiny, for it
is evident from the animosities and confusion throughout the world that things are getting more
complex with situations seemingly non-resolvable without the leadership of wise leaders and/or the
help from the celestial beings who have put forward this revelation. The world is not coming together
as it should, rather it is falling apart. URI)
