Why is a Vow of Commitment Important to Keep Before God and Man? Without Commitment, the Universe Would Self-Destruct. God is the First to Commit Himself to All of His Creation

by Niánn Emerson Chase


Vows Have Been Around for a Long Time

I once heard that commitment is the continued action of a vow. Let me say that again: Commitment is the continued action of a vow. Many individuals have an aversion to taking vows and oaths since so many oaths made by humans seem needless, foolish, immature, and actually false. But on a human level all vows or oaths are not negative; there are oaths taken that are noble and even sacred, helping to keep a person on his or her higher path of thinking, feeling, and doing.

 Worthy and sacred human vows began 500,000 years ago in Dalamatia and have continued throughout the evolution of human life. For example, four thousand years ago Abraham and Machiventa Melchizedek’s other students of Salem made a pledge, an “oath of ordination,” to be true to certain ethics that forbade any type of exploitation in their positions as teachers of spiritual truths.[1] Two thousand years ago Jesus’ apostles made vows of devotion and loyalty to their Master.[2]

On a more cosmic level, when mortals are mustered into the Corps of Finality within their ascension to Paradise, they take the “Trinity oath of eternity,” also referred to as “the finaliter oath” and “the oath of allegiance to the Paradise Trinity.” According to The URANTIA Book, this is “an oath of sweeping implications and eternal import.”[3]

Guess what! Celestial beings have been taking vows for a long, long time. Here are some examples:

  • The Creator Michaels take a sacred oath to the Trinity to carry out certain responsibilities concerning their required seven bestowals.[4]
  • Some Life Carriers and their associates take renunciation vows if they choose to remain to continue their service on an evolutionary world upon the arrival of a Planetary Prince and the initiation of a new planetary mortal epoch. That happened on this world about 500,000 years ago.[5]
  • Adam and Eve—the Material Son and Daughter who came to this world about 36,000 years ago—took an “oath of allegiance to the Most Highs of Norlatiadek and Michael of Nebadon” before and upon arriving on Urantia to serve as rulers within Divine Administration.[6]
  • When Mansion World Teachers—who are “once-embraced” cherubim and sanobim that have worked long on the morontia spheres—graduate to being “re-embraced” by the Universe Mother Spirit to emerge as “full-fledged seraphim,” they take an “oath of personality transformation” for higher service in a career as seraphim.[7]
  • Many seraphic guardians who have “been permitted to go through the ascendant career with their human wards” join their human companions in taking the finaliter oath.[8]

Meanings of Commitment

At the beginning of this teaching I pointed out that commitment is the continued action of a vow. In support of that meaning is a dictionary definition of commitment: “to obligate or commit or pledge oneself.” The Bible tells us to commit your way to the Lord. Trust Him, and He will bring it to pass.

Another dictionary definition is: “to entrust,” and entrust implies “committing with trust and confidence.” Before Michael of Nebadon’s seventh bestowal as Jesus of Nazareth, his elder Paradise brother Immanuel told him, “In all other details of your oncoming bestowal we would commit [entrust] you to the leading of the indwelling Adjuster, the teaching of the ever-present divine spirit of human guidance, and the reason-judgment of your expanding human mind of hereditary endowment.”[9]

 The URANTIA Book also tells us: “One thing you can depend upon: The Adjusters [fragments of the Universal Father that indwell our minds] will never lose anything that is committed to their care; never have we known these spirit helpers to default.”[10] So, remember that we have been committed or entrusted to the care of our Thought Adjusters, and we can rely on them to remain loyal to their particular mission with the individual mortal soul they are assigned to.

At the beginning of his public ministry, when Jesus was praying before his great ordination sermon, he committed [entrusted] his apostles to the Universal Father’s care, just as today Christ Michael has committed his Divine New Order apostles, change agents of the Divine Administration, to the Father’s care. In that prayer of commitment, Jesus said: 

My Father, I now bring to you these men, my messengers. From among our children on earth I have chosen these twelve to go forth to represent me as I came forth to represent you. Love them and be with them as you have loved and been with me. And now my Father, give these men wisdom, as I place all the affairs of the coming Kingdom in their hands. And I would, if it is your will, tarry on earth a time to help them in their labors for the kingdom. And again my Father, I thank you for these men, and I commit them to your keeping while I go on to finish the work you have given me to do.[11]

Today Christ Michael has committed [entrusted] his apostles and disciples of the Divine New Order to his Father’s keeping. Now Michael of Nebadon is here with us through his Spirit of Truth, which he bestowed after ascending from this world Urantia. And the Universal Father sojourns with each of us through the presence of Thought Adjuster, which is “the most profound of all universe mysteries.”[12]

We who are committed to serve in Divine Administration have a tremendous responsibility, and the mandates today are the mandates of higher understanding, with much more responsibility today than the apostles and disciples had about two thousand years ago.

Another dictionary definition of commit is: “to pledge or assign to some particular cause.” The URANTIA Book tells us that as time passed, most of the apostles became even more committed to the work of the Kingdom because they had “staying power.” In order for someone to remain in his or commitment to another person or work or whatever, he or she must have loyalty, which is continued action to a vow. That is the staying power.

After Jesus’ death and his morontia appearances, the apostles and about 120 believers and disciples were bestowed with the Spirit of Truth. With this new consciousness of spiritual strength, Peter proposed that they all remain loyal to the good news that had been committed and trusted into their hands. Today we in Divine Administration have the Fifth Epochal and Continuing Revelation committed into our hands, and we are to remain loyal to it.

We know that there is loyalty to ideas, beliefs, groups, and individual persons. In fact, we in Divine Administration have a day (July 17) set aside as “Loyalty Day” to honor not only persons who have remained loyal to their vows to serve God in His perfect will but to the concept of any loyalty that is within divine pattern.

Misplaced Loyalties

Celestial Overcontrol has often spoken to us about true loyalty and false loyalty. We have learned that we need to relinquish our various false loyalties and obligations, and hold fast to our first true loyalty. That first loyalty is to the Universal Father, and all other true and right loyalties will then appropriately fall into place. 

What are some of those false loyalties that we need to relinquish? Firstly, there is loyalty to our lower selfish nature, which is the big one, and that is the one that Lucifer introduced and accentuated in his Manifesto 200,000 years ago.

Then there is loyalty to someone who is out of God’s perfect will and divine pattern, whether it be family members, friends, employers, government officials, movie stars, rock musicians, famous scientists, writers, artists, and so on. Jesus had to go against his biological family’s and friends’ wishes and expectations in order to remain loyal to his destiny and ministry.

There is loyalty to false beliefs because we are comfortable with them, and we get some form of personal power and prestige in our so-called knowledge in those false belief systems. Jesus often spoke very strongly to the religious and powerful Sadducees and Pharisees of his day who wanted to remain steadfast in their false belief systems and superstitions. That is where their personal power lay, and if they gave that up they would lose their personal power and status.

That is why a lot of so-called spiritual leaders today are not willing to embrace epochal revelation and move a step higher in their own understanding of spirituality. They are comfortable in their personal place of power. They are leaders and teachers there, but if they walked into this revelation, they would have to become a student to learn it in order to become a teacher again, and most of them aren’t willing to do that. 

There is the loyalty to tradition, which can be family traditions and other social traditions such as certain national celebrations. From childhood on, Jesus would not participate in any of his family’s traditions that went against God’s reality and against the true teachings of God. The Fourth of July, Independence Day, is just one example of celebrating nationalism and bombs bursting in air. Though there is nothing wrong in celebrating the gaining of independence from a tyrannical government, it can be celebrated in a much higher way than it is presently, and that is why Divine Administration set aside July 5 for Global Interdependence Day, which celebrates global brotherhood and sisterhood rather than mere nationalism. 

There is loyalty to lower religious forms, which many people have found comfort in and want to remain in them. Jesus refused to take part in any Jewish tradition, ritual, or ceremony that perpetuated false superstitious beliefs, and he taught that people should progress beyond any religious form that was steeped in falsehood. In order to truly move into a higher fourth-dimensional consciousness, we have to move out of those forms, keeping only that which is of truth and goodness.

Within the New Age movement there are hundreds of sincerely seeking people who are getting temporary comfort and a little bit of growth from religious forms that are really quite old and traditional but do not bring any new revelation. Those old religious forms can be a jumping off point, or a window or a door to help someone move into a higher revelation that is now available to the planet, but if individuals remain loyal to just their Native American spirituality, or their Buddhist tradition, or their Hinduism, or their Christianity, or whatever it is in a fundamentalistic mindset, then they cannot embrace the powerful epochal revelation that is here now on the planet. 

If we are going to really contribute to this world moving forward into light and life, it is crucial that we in Divine Administration move on from the various false loyalties to which we have become attached, and, for some, even addicted to.

Loyalty to God and the Outworking of His Will on Urantia (Earth)

Of course The URANTIA Book does speak very highly of true and right loyalties, as long as those loyalties do not replace or take priority over our first loyalty to the Universal Father. There is loyalty to our beloved family and friends and loyalty to our employer, our community, our government, and so on.

Unfortunately on this planet Urantia, because of the Lucifer Rebellion 200,000 years ago, almost all human institutions are at some level based upon Luciferic teachings. Thus any loyalties to any of these individuals, groups, and institutions that are of the third dimension could become false loyalties to some degree if they detract from our being in the perfect will of the Universal Father and meeting our destiny in the highest manner.

Our commitment and loyalty to our First Father, the First Source and Center, is easier to carry out in this Divine-New-Order culture that we are struggling to create here in Divine Administration. Celestial Overcontrol’s plan is that eventually this fourth- and fifth-dimensional culture that we are attempting to live will evolve into transforming or even replacing the existing cultures and governments of the world. That vision may seem to be a long ways from manifesting, but it begins with this model that we of “the goodly company” are creating together.

Merriam Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary defines loyal as “unswerving in allegiance; faithful in allegiance to one’s lawful sovereign or government; faithful to a private person to whom fidelity is due; faithful to a cause, ideal, custom, institution or product.” 

It is very important now that our first faithfulness is to the Divine Administration and its principles and ethics. Our loyalty and allegiance to the U.S. government or the British government or the Brazilian government or the Australian government or the Saudi Arabian government or the Israeli government must be within the true laws of God and divine administration principles.

We do not need to pledge allegiance to anything outside of divine pattern, anything that is corrupt and exploits other human beings and natural resources. We can honor and be loyal to anything within a human-made government that is within the laws of God and are based upon principles of progress within divine pattern. However, our first loyalty is to our celestial sovereign, Christ Michael of the universe of Nebadon, not the mortal politicians in power. Of course we should always support and be loyal to those statespersons who are true to principles and ideals within the laws of God.

Any loyalty that we have to any individuals must be a faithfulness to whom fidelity is due. They too must be faithful to the Universal Father of All, and His laws and principles. If we have a loyalty to someone who is not, that person will become a distraction from our higher aspirations and calling. We can love them and show them respect, honor, and courtesy where all of this is due, but our first loyalty is to our heavenly Father and to the destiny that He has for us in coordination with the Sovereign of Nebadon, Christ Michael.

Most of us aligned in Divine Administration have experienced to some degree our biological family’s anger and frustration with us because of our commitment to follow our vows of loyalty and dedication to this great work. Most of our family do not understand our commitment and confuse it with other lower evolutionary religions and “cultish” commitments. Many of our biological family members and past friends are upset that our loyalties have switched. Though in our hearts we consider ourselves still their family and friends, and we still love them (even more now), we have placed our loyalty in something beyond them. And that is difficult for most of them to comprehend or accept fully. Even Jesus experienced misunderstanding and disappointment from his biological family. Basically he said to his apostles: “If you place your love and your allegiance to your biological family over your allegiance to me, then you do not really love me.”

The cause, the ideal that we in Divine Administration need to be loyal and faithful to now is the cause of bringing the fourth and fifth dimension, the first stage of light and life, into existence on this planet, by us becoming purified and of fourth- and fifth-dimensional thinking, feeling, doing, and being.

Another way to put this is that the level of God that an individual or society experiences does depend upon our commitment and loyalty to the divine pattern of the Universal Father, and that divine pattern manifests within our personal beings as well as in all interactions on the physical, social, intellectual, and spiritual levels. 

How amazing to consider that the power of God—and all of the multi-dimensional ways that it manifests in the universes of time and space—the beauty and the reality of God is here, within us and on this planet. But how we and others experience it depends upon our loyalty to being in the perfect will of God, being receptive of the many, many gifts and blessings of God. 

It is our responsibility, first as individual creational units, to remain loyal to our vows to Christ Michael and have that staying power. Then it is our responsibility, as a cosmic family unit, to remain loyal to Divine Administration, working side by side with celestial beings to manifest the vision and ideal of the beginning stages of light and life.

It is important to educate ourselves as to the reality of divine government at a universe and superuniverse levels—all paralleled in some manner here on this world at our very human level. This is why we study this in our University of Ascension Science and the Physics of Rebellion. It is our responsibility to bring this message to the world, as we can become the change point for the great shift into a better world. It is getting a certain number of people to pledge their loyalty to Christ Michael in a higher understanding that can cause the shift, the quantum leap of this planet into the first stage of light and life.

Broken Vows and Betrayal of Trust

As we know, our system sovereign Lucifer broke his oath of loyalty to Christ Michael and the Universal Father, and that broken loyalty has resulted in broken circuitry, broken worlds and broken people who are caught up in false loyalties to non-reality, that which is not of eternal value, that which is not of the beauty, truth, and goodness of divine pattern. 

The URANTIA Book states that: “. . . of all forms of evil, none are more destructive of personality status than betrayal of trust, and disloyalty to one’s confiding friends.”[13] Lucifer, Satan, Caligastia, and Daligastia (to name a few) betrayed the trust of Christ Michael, and they betrayed all of those whose well-being was entrusted to their care. 

That poison of broken commitment and disloyalty is the legacy of the Lucifer Rebellion for all individuals and all worlds who have participated for the last 200,000 years. We know that this world Urantia (Earth) participated in it, and the fourth-order starseed from three other universes participated in it too. There has been broken loyalty, broken commitment, and broken circuitry. It is now the final settling of the Adjudication of the Bright and Morning Star versus Lucifer, and in this Adjudication it is time for us to correct any disloyalty that we have committed. 

Is loyalty—devotion to highest duty—desirable? Then must man [people] carry on amid the possibilities of betrayal and desertion. The valor of devotion to duty consists in the implied danger of default.[14]

And so let us carry on in our reestablished loyalty to the Universal Father and to Michael of Nebadon.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Some of our lower choices have bigger ramifications than others, but all choices, higher or lower, within God's permissive will have a ripple effect.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

You cannot really love God, receive His love, and grow and expand in that divine love without simultaneously loving other persons.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

If we do not continually drink from the life-giving "Aquarian concepts" of epochal revelation, we will wither in the immensity of the worldwide spiritual drought.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Your true point of origin is God.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

One way to return good for evil is to give the person an opportunity to make a higher choice by you making a higher choice.

Truth, beauty and goodness are to awaken people to the hope and higher vision of light and life.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

A spiritually mature person can see where they are glorious and where they need to change.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In order to experience healing, reconciliation with God, and genuine community, we must be close and intimate with every facet of ourselves, including every shadow and every spot of light.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Wisdom requires that we determine the probabilities of manifesting the possibilities.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The changes that are happening are cosmic in scope.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

A lot of the suffering we go through is a result of resisting the Spirit of Truth, resisting our own expansion. If we allow God in, the suffering can be transformed into something greater.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

As we become more aware of the goodness of God and His standards within divine pattern, at the same time we become more aware of the evil in the world that stands in stark contrast to goodness.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Every day I feel richer—that richness of spiritual expansion into what I am destined to become as an ascending daughter of God. That's what living in Providence is.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

God is the intelligent principle behind all laws.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Isn't our highest destiny to be in the eternal moment striving to be more godlike, more open and receptive to the leadings of the Threefold Spirit within us, regardless of what we are doing?

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is the destiny of every single child of God on this planet to discover the Father—the First Source and Center—to develop a personal relationship with Him and to grow in true self-esteem.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We must become cosmic in our world view, thus making it a universe view.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In our love of God we begin to move into valuing ourselves, a process of realizing what our lower selves do to keep us from expanding into our true personalities, which will result in self-esteem.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Peace begins with individuals, with each of us finding our place as ascending sons and daughters within the divine pattern of the Universal Father.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Reading and integrating Fifth Epochal Revelation and Continuing Fifth Epochal Revelation helps us to become citizens of this universe.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Part of genuine community is learning how to confront in a compassionate, respectful way, and also learning how to receive confrontation in a humble, gracious way.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In order for individuals and groups, cultures, and nations to move closer to a world of light and life, we all have to get out of the stagnant water of doing the same thing over and over.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

A very important aspect of our spiritual growth is being put in situations where we really have to learn to be thoughtful of others.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The destiny of this world, the world of the beloved Christ Jesus the Creator Son of Nebadon, is to move into light and life through the brother- and sisterhood of humankind.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Epochal Revelation takes our understanding of concepts and blows our mind—expands our minds in all directions. It is constipation of the cosmic mind to be stuck in dogmatism and fundamentalism.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We humans on this planet must truly live love if there is going to be any healing that happens for us and the earth.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

All the pessimist sees is the problem. When you allow God into how you see things, then you are transformed into a positive person who sees the potential in divine pattern.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

See yourself [men] as knights of the round table in service to ascending daughters.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Functioning in Divine Administration means service to others and you can do it so much easier together.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The sign of maturity is being able to admit failure. And every human being fails.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Living in any form of community reveals both our gifts and our limitations.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Higher courage comes from the reality of religious experience.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is that divine nature within us that can empower us to rise to the heights of love that is reflective of God.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Classes should be a union-of-souls experience where you listen and fall in love with your brothers and sisters.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It takes courage to effect conquest of our lower nature and transcend our lower self.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Most people who are suffering are suffering from the disease of self.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

You can't grow in true self-esteem until you have pledged loyalty to the Creator of all.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

When you have a sense of purpose, you forget the clamoring of yourself.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

On this fallen world, often it is only through adversity that we make quantum leaps in growth.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

If you want to ascend you have to understand human nature, your own nature, and the fragility of human beings.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Knowing God is an ongoing, forward-moving, expanding, evolutionary, ascending process.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We know that there have been many people who have been considered failures in life and yet, from God's perspective they were some of the greatest people that walked the planet.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Those who are true problem-solvers see the potential in the circumstances before them. If you cannot see the potential, nothing will really change.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Though high intelligence does enhance our ability to do more good for more people, it is the essence of love that perpetuates gentleness, compassion, and forgiveness.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We get so caught up in our mundane lives and physical bodies—what they do to us and what we do to them—that we forget what we have around us and the great cosmic family we have here with us.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The destiny of every woman is wisdom.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is in those moments of expressing genuine love and concern for another human being that I have experienced the most happiness and fulfillment.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In our cooperation with the Threefold Spirit of God, we can have quantum leaps of growth and healing in our adversity rather than being broken by it.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Love is not just a noun, it is also a verb. We have to become practitioners of love.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

When aligned with divine pattern within perfect personality pattern, you don't have confusion and find your true self.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We each are a book unfolding, and in writing our own history or herstory, some of us are a thicker book than others because of past repersonalizations, thus having more chapters to our book of life.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Welcome those times in your life when your comfort zones are challenged, as this will help your soul to grow.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is hearing other people's personal stories that we can develop more compassion, that we can develop a sense of connectedness with other human beings.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

In order to understand these times of the purification, we need to understand God's justice and administration on this planet.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Always in any truly great movement that brings any kind of progress to the planet, there is the presence of both men and women.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Being reborn again is really about being regenerated and going back to our real source and relationship with God.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We all well know how important it is to realize that your idea of what power is may not be God's idea, and our idea of God's timing may not really be His idea of timing.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

It is the destiny for all individuals within God to expand inward, upward, and outward in the balance of Father, Mother, and Son circuitry.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

As we unite we create more and more light which dissolves the craziness of the Lucifer Rebellion.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Healing has to do with a shift in the mind, in the thought processes of the individual. Healing has to do with some kind of personal encounter with God the Father.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

One of the highest levels of recognition is recognizing the true religious/spiritual virtues in others.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Our tiny culture here as an EcoVillage and intentional community is much more than that; it is the outworking of the Trinity’s influence in all our lives.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We must help construct our inner selves, our higher minds and souls in order to bring about mindal and physical healing.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Degrees of destiny fall into place when we come to know our source, that we are from the Paradise Trinity.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We need to grab onto the higher aspirations of wanting to be a more loving person, of being in God's perfect will moment to moment.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Being realistically optimistic is seeing the potentiality of God's will being manifested within every circumstance and person.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

The most important thing about culture is the spiritual light.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

We make our own prisons within our minds.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

If we allow God to purify us, we'll be composted, and then we can provide nourishment for others.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Your message should have a flavor of universalism to it in order to appeal to many different types of individuals.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Every time we make a movement forward in our own psychospiritual status, we make a contribution to the progression of human culture.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

From an eternal perspective evil is not real; love is real and of eternal value.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Failure is a learning episode.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

If a person is confident in his or her sense of mission and higher purpose , do not misinterpret it as pride.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Every day can be our Pentecost, the renewal of God's spirit within us restoring us to our fullness in being able to love more perfectly and forgive more readily.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

What is liberty and what is true liberty? With true liberty comes responsibility.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

To truly love another human being is to see his or her potential.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Have the courage to claim the authority of right and the authority of goodness.

-Niánn Emerson Chase

Your destiny is to find yourself in God and ascend into your personality.

-Niánn Emerson Chase
