HISTORY LESSON

OF…

1943, 1948, 1991, 1995, and 2019

            The following is from Volume 32, #4, summer 2019 THE BANNER by Andrew W. Hartsook.  Before I begin I would like to explain that Bliss Knapp was a personal student of Mary Baker Eddy’s.  He understood who she was and her place in Bible prophecy, and he never forgot it.  Unfortunately, the Board of Directors were not wanting the Truth about Mary Baker Eddy to be published by Knapp.   {My interpolations will be in this type of bracket.}

Saturn 5

            Saturn 5 is the name of the rocket type used for the moon missions.  The first rocket launched on November 9, 1967 and the last rocket was used on May 15, 1973.  The most popular use of Saturn 5 is the one that launched on July 16, 1969.  Saturn was an old god of mythology; it is also the name of the sixth planet in our solar system.  Being that it is sixth in order means that it symbolically stands for the sixth synonym for God (in the Word and Science order) – Truth.  The number 5 is symbolic for the fifth synonym for God – Life.  So you have Truth and Life together reaching out for the moon.

There Is Only One Christ

            I have received comments that I am wrong in stating that Mary Baker Eddy is the Second Coming of Christ, because she stated that Christian Science is the Second Coming of Christ, and that she makes it clear that there is only one Christ.  Am I wrong to state that Mary Baker Eddy, instead of Christian Science, is the Second Coming of Christ?

TAROT CARDS’ SPIRITUAL MEANING

            Pamela Colman Smith was the designing artist of the Rider-Waite Deck Tarot Cards.  According to the box that the cards came in she was “under the direction of Arthur Edward Waite”.  They were with the Order of the Golden Dawn and this particular deck came out in 1910.  “Waite was able to restore in great part the original symbolic meanings that had been lost or changed in the passage of time.  There are those who say that the symbols had been deliberately changed, in some cases to throw the Roman Church off the track and prevent the priests from appropriating the Tarot’s verities for their own purposes.”[1]
            “The Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn was founded in England in 1886 as a result of the discovery and deciphering of some ancient manuscripts on occult initiation.”[2]  I do not pretend to know what this group really did, or how they thought along spiritual lines, but the word “occult” simply means:  “to hide from sight, conceal”[3].  Somehow Tarot and Qabalistic (also Kabalah or Cabala) Symbolism are tied together, and when we come to the Rider Deck, it may be more closely tied together than the average person realizes.  (And I have serious doubts that people who read the cards for fortune telling have the slightest idea what the Cards are really even presenting symbolically.)  What I mean by this is that there is a definite KEY CARD – the Ten (or X) of Pentacles (or Coins).  On this card are ten pentacle coins and they are placed on the card in order to represent the ten Spheres on the Kabalah Tree of Life.  This KEY CARD is useful in understanding the rest of the deck, for with its use you know what is placed on the card is found to be located for a specific sphere or a particular path of the Tree.  So in order to really understand the symbolism of the Tarot one must become familiar with the Kabalah Tree of Life Matrix.  I believe that this would take many years for someone to accomplish!  I have not really wanted to dedicate myself to this particular study, but I do find it quite interesting.

Government Shutdown and Border Problems Pt. 2

FIVE BOOKS
            After posting about Nehemiah’s wall on January 30, 2019 (explaining why there needs to be a wall or fence on the southern border of the United States of America), I decided I needed to delve further into the topic.  So I turned to W. Gordon Brown’s book FROM GENESIS TO REVELATION.  I found that I could not just present Nehemiah to you because he is part of a group of books that must be seen as a whole, or a compound idea.  I will give you a basic overview of what Brown presents in this section from his book.  I realize that I jumped the gun in presenting Nehemiah first.  And so, we must first understand what took place before Nehemiah because Ezra must take place first – even though what takes place in Ezra and Nehemiah are pretty much simultaneous.  But both books present different things being rebuilt – parts of Jerusalem.  I am presenting these five books to you because of what is going on in the United States of America, and how its heads of government are fighting on one issue – the wall.

Government Shutdown and Border Problems

PAUL RYAN CAUSED THE GOVERNMENT SHUT DOWN
            It is funny how things happen, I have held off publishing this post for a while now because I have not finished proof reading everything and making polishing it up.  Yet, yesterday and today I have heard two other people blame Paul Ryan for the government shutdown!  The following is what I wrote before hearing those two people make their comments.
            Why do I say that Paul Ryan is the cause of the government shut down that began in December 2018, when he is not in office any more?
            It is simple to explain why he is to blame – he had the majority of Republicans in the House for two years, and he did nothing to help President Trump build the wall, by getting the funds needed.  Instead he passed that nasty Omnibus Bill in 2017.  That is the Bill that President Trump should have vetoed!  But he did not do it because it had all that money for the military in it.

            Behold I stand at the door, and knock, if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. — Christ Jesus.

CHRISTIANITY AS THE CHRIST – “SCIENCE OF BEING”


CHRISTIAN SCIENCE HEALING

First Edition

Christian Science Healing

Christian Science Healing (with the bearded man and white mantle)

Christ was not crucified — that doom
            Was Jesus’ part;
For Sharon’s rose must bud and bloom
            In human heart.*

Forever present, bounteous, free,
            Christ comes in gloom;
And aye, with grace towards you and me,
            For health makes room.

* “God was manifest in the flesh.” — St. Paul.  {Christ is the manifestation of God.}

Scriptural basis:
            If Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin but the Spirit [God-likeness] is life because of righteousness. St. Paul.

            But such as I have, give I thee:  In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk. — St. Peter.

Starflower of Boston – Part 1

            Helen Wright’s book STAR OF BOSTON The Life of Mary Baker Eddy has three sections to it.  Part I is about Mary Baker Eddy fulfilling Isaiah 54, Part II is Atonement and Eucharist: the story of the Second Coming of the Christ as Revelation, and Part III is about Christ and Christmas, an illustrated poem by Mary Baker Eddy.  And finally there is a Conclusion.
            What I would like to talk to you about is Part III of her book.  Helen uses quote excerpts from the writings of Alice Orgain and a manuscript attributed (but never confirmed) to Judge Septimus J. Hanna.  When she quotes from this manuscript she places a question mark after Hanna’s name.  She also gives us some ideas on the topic by John Pawlik, someone she knew.  I have studied Christ and Christmas for years, and am not sure that I agree with everything that Alice Orgain writes upon the topic, but I am open to changing my mind.  And I think that I have done so on Illustration 8 – TREATING THE SICK.  It is explained in Helen’s book that every illustration points to a particular time in Mary Baker Eddy’s life, which is probably so, and so I will try and bring out that point to you, as I do not know if I have succeeded in my past posts on the topic in this respect (or on this topic).  Part 1 is about how Christ and Christmas correlates with the symbols in The First Church of Christ Scientist in Boston.  Parts 2 and 3 have to do with Sharon’s Rose Matrix and its alignment with WINDOW OF THE OPEN BOOK, a Rose Window on the South side of the little edifice in Boston.
            Helen did not include the material written by Doris Grekel (from one of her biographies on Mary Baker Eddy and in some of her pamphlets she used to publish).  This could be because Helen did not have room for everything out there written on Christ and Christmas, for her book is only 257 pages long and Alice Orgain’s two books are WAY bigger!
            I do not know John Pawlik, so I will leave him out of my discussion, because what I want to explain, at this point, is the big difference between the Orgain, Hanna (?), and Grekel ideas on Christ and Christmas.
