Code to the Scriptures – Chapter 12 (end)

Chapter 12 – The Conclusion of Revelation

     The Conclusion of Revelation, after Vision Seven (Love), has the last seven statements by John (divine Science) and the Epilogue that gives us seven rules:

Rev. 22:6 – “And he said unto me, These things are faithful and true [of the white horseman of Rev. 19]:  and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.  Jesus told John that the sayings are faithful and true; and that God sent His angel, a holy Christ prophet Mary Baker Eddy, to show us how man during the Sixth Day of Truth arrives at His dominion and that the Revelation of Science is a present reality.  It always has been a present reality!

Mind – Rev. 22:7 – “Behold, I [divine Mind] come quickly:  blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.”

Love – Rev. 22:17 – “And the Spirit and the bride say, Come.  And let him that heareth say, Come.  And let him that is athirst come.  And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.”  “And the Spirit, the Christ [Jesus], and the Bride [Mary Baker Eddy], New Jerusalem, say, ‘Come, and let him who spiritually understands say, “Come.”  Let him who is athirst for Truth and Love, and he who is receptive, let him partake of spiritual understanding (the water of life) and complete fruitage [demonstrate over error], for this Revelation is a free gift to all.’”[1]

Code 11a

Spirit – Rev. 22:8,9 – “And I John saw these things and heard them.  And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which showed me these things.
     “Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not:  for I am thy fellow servant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book:  worship God.”
     “As we record these important facts, we remind Christian Scientists of our Leader’s words (Miscellaneous Writings, p. 308), ‘The Scriptures and Christian Science reveal “the way,” and personal revelators will take their proper place in history, but will not be deified.’”[2]

Truth – Rev. 22:16 – “I Jesus have sent mine angel [Mary Baker Eddy, with the power of the Revelation] to testify unto you these things in the churches.  [I did this to make you aware of the spiritual source of Life that comes from the Christ, which is Truth, and the Christ teachings of Truth.]  I [the Christ] am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star [which is Venus, the Goddess of Love, or the City Bride].”

Soul – Rev. 22:10-12 – “And he [Jesus] saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book [Revelation]: for the time is at hand [the time is NOW].
     “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still:  and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still:  and he that is holy [whole, complete], let him be holy still [let him strive to understand more and be more consecrated in studying and using the words of the two Holy books].
     “And behold, I come quickly [Christ is ever present]; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.”

Life – Rev. 22:14,15 – “Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
     “For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.”
     Blessed are those who obey God’s Holy Covenant – the Letter of the Law and the Spirit of the Law – that they may have rights to eat the fruitage found within the pages of Science and Health, that they will be able to enter in through the gates (the main sixteen chapters) into the city’s divine calculus matrix.
     Anyone who is unwilling to speak or accept the Science of Being is unable to enter into the Holy City because they believe that evil coincides with good (this is the tree of knowledge) and that evil exists.  You must understand that there is “no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter.” (“Recapitulation”)

Principle – Rev. 22:13 – “I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end [not that dragon of astrology who bites his own tail], the first [Mind] and the last [only Love].”  God, Principle, is Oneness, the Onlyness there is.
     And finally there is the Benediction (Revelation 22:18-21) -– the three closing announcements:

Discoverer – The Revelation is Completed [by Mary Baker Eddy].

Founder – The realization [Mary Baker Eddy’s Christian Science] is here and now.

Leader – The proof [of Science] is established [by Mary Baker Eddy]

     So here we are at the end of this book.  I hope that it was helpful in explaining the books of Genesis and Revelation.
