Code to the Scriptures – Chapter 7
Chapter 7 – Revelation’s Introduction
From the very first verse (Rev. 1:1) we find the divine calculus of the Word, the Christ, Christianity, and Science. The Word is God’s Word. Revelation comes directly from God and is given to Jesus Christ. Then Jesus Christ presents Revelation to his angel, his divine messenger who has the face of a man, representing Christianity. And finally, it is the Christian angel that presents the Revelation to St. John. The name John is rooted to Jonah (dove), which truthfully means divine Science (and this is the city foursquare, or the X).
There are Seven Blessings found in Revelation 1:5-8. The first Blessing of Mind is grace and peace that comes through the seven synonymous terms for God – “the seven spirits which are before his throne” (Rev. 1:4). The second Blessing of Spirit is of Love and Freedom because Jesus has proved Life is eternal through this understanding that there is no death. The third Blessing of Soul is the complete spiritual dominion as “kings and priests,” is ours when we realize God as Life (El) and the one power in operation throughout the universe. With this we gain a clearer understanding of man’s brotherhood.
The fourth Blessing of Principle is the universal recognition of the Son of man within us as thought is uplifted. When this time comes the fifth Blessing of Life brings to us the “rouse even of the ignorant, unawakened, and indifferent thought” and the sixth Blessing of Truth “awakening the remorseful followers of strictly materialistic thinking” to the spiritual ideal. John sees the Son of man (which really means “Mind the man” or “man of Mind”), representing the spiritual idea, and probably Jesus. But, it never says in Revelation that the Son of man is Jesus. The Son of man seems more like an angel messenger, as he “cometh with clouds.” (Rev 1:7) So, this Son of man must be the spiritual idea of God, which in truth is found within us all, in the center (midst) of our own being (we are both center and circumference). This Son of man is the man created in the Sixth Day of Truth (Genesis 1), when he has dominion over the Earth. Of course, a negative symbol for “cometh with clouds” could be clouded thinking, or obscured thinking, in that we have not been able to see through the mist of Eden and recognize our own Christhood.
And the seventh and greatest Blessing is “the assurance of the daily operation of spiritual power as we realize more fully the infinite oneness of Being, the Alpha and Omega, the all inclusive one Power.”
The Son of man is dressed in spiritual protective garb, he wears the golden girdle of the Arch Priest, and he is holding in his right hand (of dominion and power) the seven stars (seven angels for the seven churches). These seven points of light (stars) are the lights of the Seven Golden Candlesticks each with their seven candlesticks (much like the Big Dipper Keystone from Window of the Open Book, where each star has seven points of light). Each Golden Candlestick represents one of the seven churches. However, these seven churches are really the One Church.
“Church. The structure of Truth and Love; whatever rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle.
“The Church is that institution, which affords proof of its utility and is found elevating the race, rousing the dormant understanding from material beliefs to the apprehension of spiritual ideas and the demonstration of divine Science, thereby casting out devils, or error, and healing the sick.” (S&H 583:12-19) (For more on the seven churches see my newer post of Egypt’s Great Pyramid and Sphinx and God’s Two Candlesticks.) An institution can be a Textbook.
The seven churches are said to be in Asia, which the Greek called “the land of the dawning thought.” These seven churches (seven Golden Candlesticks) are, or One Church is, shown as the Minor Pyramid (Golden Candlestick Matrix) presenting seven types of Church consciousness based upon the seven synonymous terms for God – Mind, Spirit, Soul, Principle, Life, Truth, and Love. However, these are counterfeited with negative traits and these must be exposed and explained so that the Christians can come forth out of false church (material organization) belonging to the red dragon of ecclesiastical despotism.
In the following I am going to explain these seven churches as the One Church of our present time, the One Church that is of the MOST IMPORTANCE – The First Church of Christ Scientist. Why do I make this statement that The First Church of Christ Scientist is the most important? It is because it manifests the true Church built upon the Rock (TRUTH) of Christ. It is the One Church in the world today that actually understands the Christ Science that Jesus demonstrated (as did his disciples). And it certainly is the Church that exists in “the land of the dawning thought” – the United States of America, where the second coming of Christ took place.
Mind – Ephesus – Church Manual – the Right Foot
These messages are all presented to “the highest thought” – that of Womanhood (which has nothing to do with sex or finite gender).
Just as there is only the One Mind, so there is only the One Church of individual (man undivided from God) consciousness. Spiritual man possesses the declaration of Truth, which is Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, directing us with the divine calculus, and protecting us in our daily lives.
Ephesus has lost its early enthusiasm (that the Christian Science Pioneers had) and the true teaching of faith (steadfastness), thus, the members are told to repent (change their thinking) and have the original Mind of God (to follow the first Commandment). In Truth, Ephesus has the recognition of spiritual man (spiritual idea) and is equipped with the seven angels (star-synonyms) of God’s presence. The correction that Ephesus needs, however, is of The Mother Church’s dominion and manipulation. This is symbolized in Revelation as goddess worship of the Queen of Heaven, Diana, or the Mother Goddess who was very powerful. It is said, “Thou hast left thy first love.” This means that The First Church of Christ Scientist has abandoned their Revered Leader, Mary Baker Eddy. This has been accomplished by breaking their contract with Mary Baker Eddy found in the Church Manual. The Boston Board of Directors (Nicolaitans – personal sense, idolatry) flagrantly refuse to obey the estoppel clauses and the Church By-Laws, and in the 1920s they broke the Trustee’s Deed (in the back of the Church Manual) by taking control of the Christian Science Publishing Society. For the most part The Mother Church left the correct teachings of Mary Baker Eddy (Truth) within the Textbook alone (did not tamper with it much). However, they have substituted her correct teachings with human intellectualism (the Boston Philosophy Club – as Paul Smillie calls it) within the four (a divine calculus) periodicals (the four rivers). These four periodicals are The Journal, Sentinel, Der Herald, and The Christian Science Monitor. There is also The Quarterly with its weekly Bible lessons that have within the last couple of years been changed to fit the mood of Boston, not Truth’s method. Thus, Ephesus is unfaithful, an infidel, and has a lack of spiritual healing (“Fruitage”).
To overcome this Christian Scientists must truly eat (digest, mentally understand the matrix structure) the eternal fruitage (its twelve manner of fruit) from the tree of life – Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures (a.k.a. “a little open book”). And they must also begin to claim once more, the Truth about Mary Baker Eddy’s place in Bible prophecy, that she is the woman God-crowned, the angel of Revelation 10, one of the two witnesses, the woman God-crowned, and the second coming of Christ.
It is interesting, and I bet that most Christian Scientists have never even given this any consideration at all, that the word “manner” means “manual.” Thus, once again, the Church Manual is of importance here with its “bearing manner” of Fruitage. W. Gordon Brown (a student of John Doorly) has a book where he compares the matrix structure of “a little open book” to the Church Manual. Could there be any doubt that these two gifts (Rev. 11) are of so much importance where Ephesus is concerned?
Spirit – Smyrna – Reading Rooms – the Right Horizontal Arm and Hand
Revelation 2:“9. I know what you are doing, your trials and your struggles with what you call poverty – though you are rich in Spirit, and I know how you are criticized by hypocrites who practice false teachings about life.”
The criticizing “hypocrites” accept the reality of death. In The Mother Church the hypocritical male Board of Directors declared Mary Baker Eddy as dead in December 1910 so that they could take over her Church, as well as, all the Branch Churches with the illegal 89th edition of the Church Manual. Hypocrites pretend to love Mary Baker Eddy while subtly telling lies about her.
The “recognition of spiritual man, expressing eternal life and being” is the true idea of Smyrna, the second candlestick. Mary Baker Eddy gave us this recognition in the Scientific Statement of Being (S&H 468:9). “There is no life, truth, intelligence, nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite manifestation for God is All-in-all. Spirit is immortal Truth; matter is mortal error. Spirit is the real and eternal; matter is the unreal and temporal. Spirit is God and man is His image and likeness. Therefore man is not material, he is spiritual.” The tenth chapter is also titled “Science of Being.”
Smyrna is commended for its Christ works and its loyalty. However, there is a correction that needs to be made for they harbor the synagogues of Satan. These synagogues are what Christian Scientists call “Reading Rooms.” It is in Christian Science Reading Rooms that true scriptures are compiled for people to read (not just Christian Scientists). But these compiled (collected) readings are also for the congregation, or the Christ Mass. However, as mentioned above, when these periodicals are full of human opinion and intellectualism the pure waters (teachings) become polluted. And the people are found to be living in poverty.
It is reported that Albert Einstein often visited a Christian Science Reading Room. When speaking about the Textbook he told the Librarian, “You people [Christian Scientists] do not know what you have here.” He was, unfortunately correct, they did not know. This shows that his scientific consciousness grasped hold of God’s true Science! In a 2013 episode of Ancient Aliens the topic was Albert Einstein. The writers of the program put forth the notion that Einstein was in communion with the (and I am not sure I am spelling it correctly) Akish Records through some sort of meditation. The only way this may be true is if these records are actually divine Mind. I put forth my own theory that because Albert Einstein did spiritually understand Christian Science that he was mentally in tune with Mind and things were revealed to him.
If erroneous writings are being distributed in the Reading Rooms this has a negative effect on the public towards Christian Science. In this new century negative biographies about the life of Mary Baker Eddy are sold in these Reading Rooms too, example Gillian Gill’s book Mary Baker Eddy. Yet Bliss Knapp’s book Destiny of The Mother Church is hidden to the public, and sometimes double its actual price (at least I know I was over charged for my copy)! Mary Baker Eddy wrote, “When the Truth about your Leader is hidden then the Truth about Christian Science is hidden [obscured].” Which book obscures the Truth about Mary Baker Eddy (my Leader) and Christian Science? It is feminist Gillian Gill’s biography. Bliss Knapp’s book speaks the Truth and he actually knew Mary Baker Eddy, but it is hidden from the public because it claims that Mary Baker Eddy fulfilled Bible prophecy!
Soul – Pergamos – Massachusetts Metaphysical College in Boston – the Upright Arm and Hand
It is important to understand that this particular candlestick is rooted to the Fourth Vision of Revelation about the woman God-crowned via the Third Vision’s second witness (Lydia). Mary Baker Eddy’s Massachusetts Metaphysical College was to teach students Christian Science healing methods. This College also made teachers out of students bringing about Associations.
Revelation 2:“12. To the highest thought, the angel thought of the church in Pergamos, in the group or individual consciousness expressing sensuality, write: These things says spiritual man, recognizing that the Declaration of Truth protects and directs (sword with two edges).” “To the highest thought” must be “to Womanhood.” The “sharp sword with two edges” (Rev. 2:12) must be the denial of error and the affirmation of Truth.
Revelation 2:13 “I know they works, and where thou dwellest, even where Satan’s seat is…” This seat of Satan is false successorship (emperor worship with its immoral practices) via material laws and/or human laws. Thus, the Board of Directors who sit in Mary Baker Eddy’s “seat” are false successors, and they accomplished possession of her chair by manipulating the By-Laws of the Church Manual.
Pergamos represents the recognition of spiritual man’s possessing the power of speech, or the Word, the declaration of Truth that directs and protects man.
“So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.” (Revelation 2:15) Pergamos has a correlation with the story about King Balak  (of Moab) who asks the prophet Balaam to cast a stumbling block before the “Children of Israel. The representatives of Soul, not corporeal sense; the offspring of Spirit, who, having wrestled with error, sin, and sense [like Jacob did], are governed by divine Science; some of the ideas of God beheld as men, casting out error and healing the sick; Christ’s offspring.” This stumbling block is sensual thinking, lust, etc. Balaam, who represents false prophecy, finds it hard to curse these Children of Israel and instead blesses them. However, this inability to curse them actually works in his favor when the Children of Israel lay down their guard. Because these Children of Israel felt that they were the blessed people of God they did not keep watch over their infidelities. The harlots that were sent by false prophecy began to kill hundreds of men through a plague.
What does this really mean? If Pergamos is the church’s learning center of medicine (healing) it means that the method of Mind healing is being adulterated, or mixed with methods of materia medica, hygiene, and perhaps (what we call today) New Age spiritual methods. The false prophecy are the lies about Mary Baker Eddy – stating that she did not fulfill Bible prophecy because she was just a little grey haired mortal woman that God did not know and that anyone could have discovered Christian Science if they would have beat her to the top of the mountain.
If this church can overcome this adultery (erroneous teachings) then their reward is the “hidden manna” (sustenance at the time of need). This hidden manna enables them to turn the stumbling block into a steppingstone, which takes them up to the hire ground (of Principle) where victory is assured. These Children of Victory are given the white stone – a new name – their original identity becomes known to them. And this original identity is that of the Son of God.
Principle – Thyatira – the Climax Church known as the city foursquare Concord Branch – the Christ Head
This fourth church has to do with the woman God-crowned, the focal point of Revelation’s fourth vision. Lydia represents this woman God-crowned because she is associated with this church. Lydia means “travail; contention; strife; conception; pregnancy; childbirth; offspring.” The woman Lydia was a seller of purple (a royal color), thus her commerce was of divine Principle, Love. Lydia, to me, is symbolic of the woman God-crowned who gives birth to the spiritual idea, or the manchild. She represents true Motherhood, the Motherhood of God. She was also a businesswoman of Phillippi, or Brotherly Love (the Sixth Church of Truth). If the church is governed by true Womanhood, the Motherhood of God, then it will succeed, or be successful in its businesses. However, if church is governed by Jezebel (daughter of Ethbaal king of the Sidonians, and wife of Ahab king of Israel), Smotherhood (control or domination), then it will fail. Jezebel represents mesmeric methods of the red dragon of ecclesiastical despotism that tries to kill the Woman’s true teachings.
Spiritual man, or the spiritual idea, possesses purified illuminated vision and reflected understanding.
The Jezebel line of thinking is determined to wipe out the worship of one God. “Elijah championed the cause of God with such enthusiasm that he became violent and destructive. This was the Jezebel side of his character. But he was willing to be instructed. He slowly learned the lesson that one must receive the kingdom of God as a little child. He started out with the roar of the whirlwind [he started out with the lion’s roar known as the Eddy], and ended with the whisper of the ‘still small voice.’” Only Elijah stands up to the prophetess Jezebel’s (today symbolized by The Mother Church) dominating and manipulating actions (of her Board of Directors). Elijah brings ruin and disaster to her bed of adultery. The reward for the church that makes the spiritual correction needed receives the rod of iron (divine Science) that is the standard of measurement. This ideal that is governed by Principle and by divine Science, is stable authority, has dominion and power and is given the “Morning Star” (a.k.a. Venus, the Christ woman God-crowned).
The Concord Branch Church was Mary Baker Eddy’s Gift. This particular Branch (a reed like unto a rod) is the city foursquare. Its foundations were built upon the concept of Home, Heaven. Will this independent Branch (Lydia) begin to be self-governed, or will it continue to turn to Boston (a Mother Church) for help?
The question we must ask ourselves today is whether the Branch Churches are willing to rely on divine Science (the rod of iron) or are they going to continue to turn to Boston for guidance?
Rev. 2:29 – “He that hath an ear, let him hear what the spirit saith unto the churches.” This means that we are to remain sharp and vigilant, a Sentinel on guard.
Life – Sardis – the Sentinel – the Upright Right Arm and Hand
It is said of Sardis that she is dead, or rather her Christ works are dead and there is no spiritual growth, there is no spiritual Life. The correction for this church error is to be a Sentinel that consists of two importance’s – to be watchful and to wear protective garments. Mary Baker Eddy placed not one but two female Sentinels upon her periodical the Sentinel. This symbol represented the two pillars of Solomon’s Temple, it symbolized the Pillar of Severity and the Pillar of Mercy for the Kabalah tree of life matrix, and it symbolized something that went way back in church history. “Two betyls or stones (female deities or sacred images) were placed within” the “Tent of Meeting” or the “Kubbe.” I see these two betyls as symbols for the Ark of Truth (Side of Life) and the Arch of Truth (Side of Light). These represent the Letter of the Law and the Spirit of the Law. The two betyls placed inside the Ark of the Covenant were the two stone tablets for the Ten Commandments. If we follow God’s Letter of the Law found in the first five Commandments then we have no problem manifesting the Spirit of the Law found in the second group of Commandments. Leah and Rachel were also two women representatives of the two betyls. Between these two wives of Jacob and the their two servants the twelve tribes of Israel (the twelve stars of the woman’s crown) were given birth.
When Adam and the woman realize their nakedness, this simply means that they realize (or dream and imagine) that they are clothed with matter (blood, bones, skin, material organs, etc.). However, the woman God-crowned is clothed with the sun, with Spirit! The woman God-crowned understands her own spirituality, never born into a material husk. This is eternal Life.
Sardis’ reward for correcting the false angel of the red dragon is to be clothed with the sun (purified protection of Spirit), and her name (identity) is established in the book of life that is Science and Health. The identity of Sardis (the capital Christ headstone that is Lydia) will not be (inked out) blotted out of existence by some Board of Directors.
Truth – Philadelphia – Uriel and her Key of David (the Land of Love) versus the Administration Tower of Boston– the Right Horizontal Arm and Hand
Philadelphia has the altar of gratitude, the steps to spiritual communion, blessing, and Love. This church is given the Key of David. There is only One Church remember, so God’s highest idea of Church is represented in the Sixth Day of Truth as the Christian Science Church. However, the Key of David is presented in the Textbook, not in the material structures known as Church, Edifice, Extension, or Branch! No, the Key of David is found within God’s written Word! The angel who has the Key to Heaven (Key of David) is Uriel. Uriel’s quality of thought is “Light.” Uriel means “the Light of God” and her symbol is that of the Roll, the Book.
In Isaiah the state treasurer is using the state’s funds (embezzling) to build his own sepulchre. (In Egypt a sepulchre was often a pyramid. The Tower of Babylon most likely had a pyramid shape.) This treasurer’s name was Shebna “growth, increase, youth, freshness, tenderness, strength, fullness, completeness.” These all sound like wonderfully great qualities! But if we want to build up matter, like the Tower of Babel, then this is not spiritual growth but material growth and material growth only leads to death. Isaiah gives Shebna the boot (he is excommunicated from King Hezekiah’s kingdom) and replaces him with another man and this man is given the Key of David (dominion of Love). The Key of David could also be called the Key to the City of our God (its matrix structure).
One may wonder why Shebna did such a bad thing. I figure that Shebna stole the money because he actually feared death. He saw death as an unavoidable occurrence and wanted his material body to be buried in the nicest place it could be placed. This type of mental consciousness cannot be given the Key of David, or the Key to Heaven that is Life, the Key to keep one from being sucked into death’s door.
I feel that the symbols of the Boston edifice are of importance. There is a reason why the Director’s Room was placed beneath Mother’s Room. It is because Mary Baker Eddy governed over these four (later on five) male mentalities and kept them in line, or in tune with divine Mind.
Is today’s Boston Board of Directors happy in their Administration Tower? Are they happy with their Tower of Babel? Are they happy with all the monies they spent on it? Will they be happy with the new towers that they plan to build? In the Rider Tarot Deck there is a card named THE TOWER. This card shows the lightning bolt of ecclesiastical despotism striking the crowned tower. The crown (ruler ship) is knocked off. There are two persons falling from the tower, one of them is wearing a crown. Nimrod, one of Noah’s grandsons, had the Tower of Babel built, but Nimrod is also the name of a Babylonian god! Babel means “confusion.” So Nimrod is the god of confusion.
“Babel. Self-destroying error; a kingdom divided against itself, which cannot stand; material knowledge.
“The higher false knowledge builds on the basis of evidence obtained from the five corporeal senses, the more confusion ensues, and the more certain is the downfall of its structure.” (S&H 581:17)
Philadelphia (brotherly love) is given the “great opportunity to express the dominion of Love, (an open door) which cannot be taken from [them, and yet they] have expressed only a little love, a little strength, but [they] have kept my word and have not denied my” seven names (my identity).
“Behold, I will make those who practice false teachings [not found in the Bible and Science and Health], who are of the synagogue [Reading Rooms] of Satan-the hypocrites [false successors of The Mother Church], I will make them humble themselves and worship, and in your proofs of Love they will learn that I have loved you!”
What is the correction that is needed in Philadelphia? The expression of Love is needed. Love your Leader and accept her place in Bible prophecy, and accept her as the second coming (Womanhood’s appearance) of Christ. Love your brother as you love yourself. If you manifest, or reflect, true Love you find it impossible to steal from your brother, church, or government. Love is honest. Hold fast to what you have that no man takes your [God] crown! We can recognize that the door to heaven is already open for everyone; Love has been given to the Son of man.
Your reward is the New Jerusalem (original city of peace). This is your spiritual support, your pillar, and brings the fullness of Christ to you. The Textbook’s fourteenth chapter is titled “Recapitulation.” This chapter is the matrix of the New Jerusalem artichoke.
In addition God will write upon the loyal citizen His “new name” – which must be “Christ Scientist.”
Love – Laodicea – the Bride City – the Right Foot
“In this message we learn that the recognition of spiritual man, the faithful and true witness [the white horseman of Revelation 19], without beginning or ending, corrects lukewarmness, apathy, self-satisfaction, and brings the reward of at-one-ment with the Christ.”
“And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen [spiritual ideal], the faithful and true witness [the White Horseman of Revelation 19], the beginning of the creation of God;
“I know thy works, that thou are neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.” (Rev. 3:14, 15)
Laodicea was a city of wealth and self-satisfaction. There were six (Truth) cities named Lao, after Antiochas’ mother. God as Mother is Love! The word LOVE is above the Christ Door to Mother’s Room (in the Boston edifice). I see the seventh church as representing the Bride City. The problem with today’s Christian Scientists is that they are not willing to give up their precious Mother Church! The Mother Church has become a Smothering material organization. It is not Mary Baker Eddy’s Church at all. They love their church more than they do Mary Baker Eddy.
What I mean by this is that there was a point when Mary Baker Eddy locked off Mother’s Room to all church members (probably the only ones meant to enter were those who did maintenance or cleaning). This was symbolic in the fact that she wanted her followers to not see her persona as their Mother. Mary Baker Eddy made no direct access from the main body of the second Concord Church to the second Concord Church’s Mother’s Room. The Mother’s Room to the Concord Church never had an open door to the main Church. Mary Baker Eddy understood that the Motherhood Mission of God had been completed and it was time for the descending Bride-City to come to man’s consciousness.
In Love man expresses the infinite one Power (Mind).
Rev. 3:18 – “I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried [purified] in the fire [by the Holy Ghost], that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness [like the Adam man being naked was “clothed in matter”] do not appear: and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.”
The problem with this church is lukewarmness, apathy, self-satisfaction, and smugness (closed thought). The correction to this type of thinking is to buy (purchase) purified protection (gold – divinity) and the Balm of Gilead (eye salve). Gilead means “mound of witness; massive witness; enduring rock; rock of time; great endurance.
“The high place in consciousness where Spirit discerns and witnesses to what is true and to all man’s thoughts and acts, that an adjustment may be made throughout mind and body. If we let our high ideals and standards become subject to sensate, error reasonings, our spiritual discernment becomes obscured and our Gilead becomes a city of them that work iniquity; it becomes stained with blood—works against our life and health (Hos. 6:8).”
If you sup with another, a friend, you allow them entrance into your home; you open the door. Ah, do you give them the Key to your door? In other words, Christian Scientists are not supposed to keep others from the Truth, they are to feed them a healthy meal of Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures. What is the point of copyrighting our writings so that we can make money, if it is God’s Truth being handed out to the world (giving a cup of cold water in Christ’s name)? What is the point of having “authorized literature” that bounds and gags the Word of God?
What is our reward for purchasing divine protection and sharing with our neighbors? It is that we all wind up realizing our oneness with God; that we are of the Christ Mind and on the throne with God.
This brings to my thought the image of “TRUTH versus ERROR” given to us by Mary Baker Eddy in Christ and Christmas. We see the Womanhood Angel, who was modeled after Mary Baker Eddy, knocking on the material organized church thought of mortal mind that is having a party within a mansion.
“He that hath an ear, let him hear!”
“Ears. Not organs of the so-called corporeal senses, but spiritual understanding.
“Jesus said, referring to spiritual perception, ‘Having ears, hear ye not?’ (Mark viii. 18)” (S&H 585:1)

 The doctrine of the Nicolaitans is the idolization of a Board of Directors by the Field, or the worship of their material personas, in that Members can often be heard saying, “Boston can do no wrong, we should listen and do whatever they tell us to do.”
 I see King Balak symbolic of the Boston Board of Directors.
 I see the prophet Balaam symbolic of the Christian Science Teachers.

 You should understand that the first Concord Church was built upon a lot where a house, a home, had stood. This was Mary Baker Eddy’s way of symbolizing that the true Church is Heaven, Home. This first Concord Church was dismantled and the second Concord Church was built in its place, still upon the idea of Heaven, Home.
