Christmas Message — A Simple Truth
With all the nonsense that we hear on YouTube metaphysical videos—about aliens creating humankind, the lizard-beings attacking humankind, influential people being lizards, and various channels of cosmic connection telling humanity that Jesus Christ had relations with Mary Magdalene and created a super race (I’m sure they all go to Harvard)—it’s really wonderful to have just a simple view of the Christ child coming and being born in a manger, with His mother Mary and father Joseph (a carpenter), with three wise men coming and honoring the Christ child as the Son of God.
Something magical happens on December 24th and 25th, even if that’s not His real birthday, which The URANTIA Book says is August 21st. You can’t deny the love that you feel on those two days, because over a billion people give gifts and are nicer and more loving on those days and this time of year. The celebration of the birth of Christ, no matter what day, when millions of people do it together, causes a synergy that we all love to experience every year, from decorating a tree in honor of Christ (that Saint Francis started) to even Santa Claus, who represents the giver of gifts to all of us children who have ever been given a gift as a child into adulthood. Every great songwriter of history, who ever wrote a true Christmas carol, captured the beauty and truth of the little Child of Bethlehem.
Joy to the world, the Lord has truly come.

The University of Ascension Science and The Physics of Rebellion (UASPR) and Divine Administration offers opportunities
for on-campus and non-resident education and training. The heart and focus of our studies is to further spiritual progress and give wisdom a place in the temporal
plane of living. Programs at the UASPR have touched thousands of lives for over 30 years and have been an instrument for accomplishing a world point of view in all
departments of human thinking, feeling and doing. Our curriculum is inspired by prophets, intellects, poets, artists, scholars and savants. Our faculty apply their own
gifts and talents to the sum of useful knowledge to impart this to the student. Being fully dedicated to the uplifting of the planet, UASPR invites all truth-seekers and
those with sincere hearts of service to visit our campus and be introduced to this academy of higher learning.
This unique university is for students who want to be outside the system. It is for higher spiritual seekers and students of higher consciousness, who seek spiritual education and study the Fifth Epochal Revelation. As opposed to studying just curriculum or concepts, the UASPR is a special workplace dedicated to building your spiritual life. When you live on campus, you will experience and benefit from the divine authority structure of on-campus Eldership—off-campus students receive a different diploma than on-campus students. Each student’s relationship to the Creator determines the student’s unique destiny as it unfolds in God’s perfect will.
