Code to the Scriptures – Chapter 8
Chapter 8 – The Foundation Stones of the Holy City of God – the First and Seventh Visions of Revelation
THE FIRST TWO FOUNDATION VISIONS (MIND and LOVE in the tone of CHRISTIANITY)
THE FIRST GOLDEN CANDLESTICK CHURCH/VISION
Vision 1 – The One Mind – establishes the one creation of Genesis 1-2:3
The first part of this vision is about the throne of God with its jewels of spiritual illumination, the Christ Lamb (God’s spiritual idea), the four living creatures (the divine calculus), and the twenty-four elders who encircle the throne like the petals of a sunflower (a New Jerusalem artichoke). I use this New Jerusalem artichoke matrix for the fourteenth chapter of the Textbook “Recapitulation.”
Symbolically I imagine that God’s throne is at the top of a pyramid or mountain, or the capital place of a giant hill. Is this not what was symbolized by Mount Sinai? Even Noah landed his ark on the capstone of a mountain.
Revelation 4:1-11 tell us about the Holy City of God (Window of the Open Book), and Vision 7 also tells us about the Holy City of God (Window of the Open Book). This tells me that understanding this Window (found on the southern wall of the Boston Edifice) is of most importance because both of these Visions are foundation stones.
The Foundation Stones – or the Outer Branch – of Mind as Mind and Mind as Love
Mind as Mind – The Stargate opens
Verse 1 speaks of “a door was opened in heaven.” This happens with the Sixth Church of Philadelphia, with Love. It was in 1994 that the movie Stargate came out in theatres. This is just at the end of the Sixth Day of Truth in the tone of Love. Then during the beginning of the Seventh Day of Love in the tone of Truth the series Stargate SG-1 began its ten-year run. It is also during this exact same time that I came up with the Stargate Matrix for Window of the Open Book. And even a sign in heaven was given that the Stargate opened up on June 29, 2000. Believe me God is shouting at us (Mind’s voice is like a trumpet.), but we need to listen – spiritually understand!
Verse 2 speaks of the “throne” and the “one” who “sat on the throne.” The throne is located in the center of the circle (the Window); thus, the “one” must be Reverend Mary Baker Eddy, whose name is found upon the pages of “a little open book.”
Verse 3 speaks of this one as having great illumination (light) and “there was a rainbow round about the throne [hub], in sight like unto an emerald [immortality].” It is the angel of Revelation 10 that has the rainbow upon his (her) brow. The prism with its seven synonymous terms for God, are like an emerald for they are immortal.
Mind as Love – The Open Bible
Verse 6 adds, to the hub of the Wheel (the midst of the throne), the four beasts, the twenty-four elders, and the Lamb. This Lamb (spiritual idea) stood “as it had been slain, having seven horns and seven eyes, which are the seven spirits of God sent forth into all the earth.” I am not going to say that the Lamb is not Jesus; I am just saying that for sure the Lamb is the Christ idea, or the spiritual idea. Therefore the Lamb is the one who is willing to deny one’s personal self, and to allow self-sacrifice (give up the corporeal belief that life exists in matter). Christian Scientists, however, cannot be afraid to see this Lamb as being Mary Baker Eddy.
The Lamb is also known as the “Bridegroom. Spiritual understanding; the pure consciousness that God, the divine Principle, creates man as His own spiritual idea, and that God is the only creative power.” (S&H 582:17) The Lamb stands in the midst (center) of the throne, beside Father-Mother God. The spiritual idea (Son of man) takes the book from God (v. 7) and a great song follows (v. 9 and 10).
Verse 7 says that the Lamb takes the “book out of the right hand of him that sat upon the throne.” Mary Baker Eddy is the Lamb who takes the Bible and prepares to rip off the seven seals one by one.
Verse 9 and 10 have a song being sung. It admits that this Lamb is “worthy to take the book, and to open the seals thereof: for thou wast slain [your belief in a material body was mentally sacrificed], and hast redeemed us to God by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation:
“And hast made us unto our God kings and priests [Fisher-Kings]: and we shall reign on the earth.”
It was Mary Baker Eddy who demonstrated self-denial and self-sacrifice on February 4, 1866. And certainly she continued to demonstrate self-denial and self-sacrifice after that date. When she was searching Truth she had very little money at all, yet she was the richest woman (or man) alive since the time of Jesus and early Christianity! I think that as her manhood unsealed the Bible that she adorned her own Womanhood with the seven synonymous terms for God!
The First Step Up – or the Middle Branch – Mind as Spirit and Mind as Truth
Mind as Spirit – The New Jerusalem artichoke
Verse 4 gives us a perfect description of the New Jerusalem artichoke that encircles the throne (“a little open book”) – in Window of the Open Book. “And round about the throne [hub or center point] were four and twenty seats [twenty-four petals]: and upon the seats [petals] I saw four and twenty elders [twenty-four Scientific sections of Answers as found in “Recapitulation” originally titled Science of Man] sitting, clothed in white raiment [placed upon white paper]; and they had on their heads crowns of gold [divinely ordained Scientific Questions].
These twenty-four elders could also have to do with the rib cage of man, as John W. Doorly feels like one of the answers (ribs) was removed from Adam in order to create the woman. He feels that this was the sixteenth answer (in the tone of Christianity as Christianity). The crown being: “Does brain think, and do nerves feel, and is there intelligence in matter?” By the way, this question somewhat follows the order of Christianity with Mind (brain think), Soul (nerves feel), and Spirit (intelligence in matter).
In the First Vision there are seven lamps of fire. These seven lamps of fire represent “affliction purifying and elevating man” or spiritual baptism. The seven lamps represent the Science order for the seven synonymous terms for God.
Mind as Truth – Grandmother’s high chair
Many years ago I had my first vision dream that I titled “Grandmother’s High Chair.” This High Chair is the Throne. In the vision dream I saw a boy sitting in my grandmother’s high chair that I use to sit in when I was just a child. My grandmother’s first name is Rosemary. Thus, her name symbolically points to this Rose Window and Mary Baker Eddy, for she is in deed a Grand (Major) Mother to all Christian Scientists. And this is also why she is found at the Boston Edifice’s cornered stained glass window in Mother’s Room.
It is a fact that Moses’ seat, or throne, was a high chair. All the priests who succeeded him sat in the high chair belonging to Moses. “Then spake Jesus to the multitude, and to his disciples, Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses’ seat…” Likewise, the Board of Directors pretend, as the boy in the dream pretended, to be Mary Baker Eddy’s legal successor. However, Mary Baker Eddy’s successor was never to be an ecclesiastical Board of Directors, or a hierarchy of five people! No, her true successor would be the Lamb of God, the spiritual idea. And this spiritual idea could be a wo-man (a kind of man) and still be “a man.”
Yes, it is true that Mary Baker Eddy said that her successor would be “a man.” But she meant “generic man.” And generic man is male and female and can be a man or a woman. John W. Doorly says that true gender is infinite; it is only in the material realm of thought that we limit gender to male, female, and neuter.
“Lamb of God. The spiritual idea of Love; self-immolation; innocence and purity; sacrifice.” (S&H 590:9 infuses added) In the dream there was a girl in a white dress and curls. The curls were like those Mary Baker Eddy use to where. I knew that the girl was a typification of Mary Baker Eddy, even though she was younger than I was in the dream. The boy who sat in my grandmother’s highchair had an open book and a wooden oval reed bookmark. Wood and an oval are both feminine symbols. Was this boy mentally digesting the Christian Science Textbook or was he just reading it without much thought?
The next thing that happened is that a Roman priest approached me. He was dressed in a robe. I knew the priest was not good, and then he tried to mentally hypnotize me into harming the girl. When he used his power he turned into the devil. He had red skin and horns. When he stopped using his evil power he looked like a normal man.
“Devil. Evil; a lie; error; neither corporeality nor mind; the opposite of Truth; a belief in sin, sickness, and death; animal magnetism or hypnotism; the lust of the flesh, which saith: ‘I am life and intelligence in matter. There is more than one mind, for I am mind, — a wicked mind, self-made or created by a tribal god and put into the opposite of mind, termed matter, thence to reproduce a mortal universe, including man, not after the image and likeness of Spirit [the man of the Sixth Day], but after its own image.’” (S&H 584:17)
Let me explain that – self-made or created by a tribal god and put into the opposite of mind, termed matter… – is a reference to Adam. This is because the tribal god who created Adam is explained in Science and Health to be the Lord God Jehovah. Adam actually does believe that he is a self-made being after he eats the forbidden fruit. So Mary Baker Eddy is explaining quite clearly that the Adam man is a devil, or the evil one.
When this priest-devil realized that he could not mesmerize me into harming the girl, who is Mary Baker Eddy, he turned his attention to the boy sitting in the highchair. He was able to successfully turn this boy against the girl. I see the boy not only as the Board but as Christians who accept the false propaganda published about Mary Baker Eddy and Christian Science.
The boy needed a weapon and it was then that the wooden reed (the Church Manual) in his hand turned into an Iscariot (as in Judas), a dagger. Its handle of ivory was carved in the shape of a wolf’s head, symbolic of hypocrisy and spiritual wickedness in high places. The boy said, “Thank you, Father!”
He jumped down from the highchair to rape (steal the woman’s inheritance or church) and kill the Womanhood of God, or the spiritual idea known as the Lamb. But, he could not get by me, even though he tried. I said, “You do not want to harm her.” And he said, “Oh, yes, I do!” But he did not pass, and that was the end of the vision dream.
Is this girl from the vision dream the same girl symbolized in “Suffer the Children to Come Unto Me [the Christ]”? Or am I the girl depicted in the drawing? This girl sits upon a pyramid chair (the rungs of the chair are not rungs but ramps winding around the pyramid) and holds open “a little open book.” Most people accept that the book in the first vision of Revelation is the Bible, and it is sealed with seven seals, or they think that it is St. John’s book of Revelation itself. I will tell you that the book with the seven seals is the Bible.
In “Suffer the Children” there is an old man (scholastic theology) sitting in a rocking chair, he just keeps going back and forth and does not really spiritually progress. On the table at his right side is a closed Bible! It would take the Lamb, spiritual idea, to take off the seven seals to the Bible. The Grandfather clock in the background points to this particular vision with its time set at 5:05. Revelation 5:5 reads: “And one of the elders saith unto me, Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Juda, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.”
Also verse 5:1 relates (small hand on the five and little hand on the one) – “And I saw in the right hand of him that sat on the throne a book written within and on the backside, sealed with seven seals.”
First this girl has to read and spiritually understand Science and Health Key to Scriptures (as it is titled in the illustration) before the Bible can be unsealed to biblical Christianity! Mary Baker Eddy never read her Textbook from front to cover until 1907; this could be the time period that this illustration represents. However, I also feel like Martha Jones-Smith (the Bride City) is also this girl during the Seventh Day of Love.
Outside the window is a bush with the shape of a dragon. It cannot get inside. For sure, this girl is the Root of David, just as Jesus is the Root of David, for the Christ must be manifested in its fullness (which is what Revelation tells us).
And so in Chapter 5:1 the tone symbols change to the one at the “right hand of him that sat on the throne” and in this hand of dominion is “a book written within and on the back side, sealed with seven seals.” These seven seals are counterfeits to the seven synonymous terms for God. These seals are seals of error, and they must be stripped away from the Bible, for the Truth has been obscured to mankind because of these seals of error. Who has placed the seals of error upon the Bible? It must be the ecclesiastical despotic leaders of the Jewish and Christian faiths (and perhaps even the Muslim faith, I do not know how much the Muslims draw upon the Bible for their religion.).
In verse 2 a strong angel asks with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof?” Remember that this “book” is the Holy Scriptures.
Verse 3 makes it clear that “no man in heaven [the Third Degree], nor in earth [the Second Degree], neither under the earth [the First Degree], was able to open the book, neither to look thereon.” There is no man able to unseal the Scriptures with the Key of David; thus, it is left up to Womanhood to unseal the Bible! It is up to God’s divine image (“Man: God’s spiritual idea [Lamb], individual, perfect, eternal.”). In other words, the scientific translation of mortal mind cannot take off the seals of error it must be left up to the scientific translation of immortal mind, as found in Science and Health, to unseal the Bible. And this scientific translation of immortal mind has the Christ order of the seven synonymous terms for God. What is the difference between the two? The Three Degrees follow the Word order and the scientific translation of immortal mind has the Christ order. So, even though the Key (to the Scriptures) is firmly based upon the Word order (as found in “Recapitulation”) it takes the Christ Mind to translate the Bible’s matrix structure.
In verse 4 John weeps because there is no man “found worthy to open and to read the book, neither to look thereon.” Then one of the elders (in verse 5) tells John not to weep because the “Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root [the essential core] of David [the Christ order], hath prevailed to open the book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.” It is the Christ-Mind, expressing the lion quality of power that triumphs. And it is the spiritual idea known as Mary Baker Eddy who will come and manifest this lion (the Word) quality. It does not matter if Mary Baker Eddy is physically related to King David, or to Jesus Christ’s bloodline (as with a San Grail), no, what matters is her spiritual mental acceptance of her own Christhood and the very fact that God chose her.
“The Root of David,” or the Stock of Jesse, is a reference to the Christ, the Messiah, which is found throughout history, or being manifested as the Christ-link. The Lion is not only symbolic for the Word, but also of the Tribe of Judah, being worthy to open (unseal) the Book (or the scroll) in the hands of Mother-God who sits on the throne. This Mother-God is represented in the Tarot Rider Deck as THE HIGH PRIESTESS. Mary Baker Eddy defines the high priestess as Love. On the Tarot card the Woman holds a scroll, the Tora[h]. It is by design that the words of Tarot and Torah are similar – Tora[t] spelled backwards is Tarot. It is from this backward spelling to Tarot that points us to the fact that Tarot cards present Bible prophecy to us via symbolic drawings (but this truth has also been obscured). THE HIGH PRIESTESS is a representation of the Woman God-crowned, or God’s own Motherhood (which is always Love).
The Second Step Up – or the Inner Branch – of Mind as Soul and Mind as Life
Mind as Soul – Aaron’s rod
Verse 5 presents to us Aaron’s rod or the Golden Candlestick – “seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven spirits (synonyms) of God.” They are Mind (Light), Spirit (Wisdom), Soul (Beauty), Principle (Power), Life, Truth, and Love.
In window of the Open Book there is the center hub. I depict this hub as the capstone of the Major Pyramid Matrix of Truth. Why do I do this? Well, the squared-cycle for the Word joins the four major stars together, while the hub of the Science squared-cycle follows the same layout as the Word squared-cycle does, thus it is like the capstone for the Word. It is also of significance that in geometry these four sides of the squared-cycle for the Word would be called chords (four chords or strings) joining each major star together as the walls to the city foursquare.
Mind as Life – One creation recognized
In verse 9 (the divine calculus) the four beasts live forever because they “give glory and honor and thanks to the one on the throne.” They recognize only one creation – that as found in Genesis 1-2:3.
Now verse 10 returns to the New Jerusalem artichoke, as the “four and twenty elders fall down before him that sat on the throne…and cast their crowns [their questions] before the throne.” The twenty-four question and answers of “Recapitulation” enable us to understand, accept, and know God’s omnipotence and accept Him-Her as the only Creator (see Rev. 4:11). There is only one creation (one Revelation) recognized and that has to be Christian Science.
An interesting concept came to me one day. If the wings of the four living creatures actually represent the Keystone windows then each living creature would have six Keystones forming a semicircle or a straight angle. (W=Word, C=Christ, Cy=Christianity, S=Science)
Rev. 4:6 presents the stained glass Window of the Open Book as “a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne [located in the hub of the wheel which is also the capstone], and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind [foursquare] (this points us to the city foursquare in Vision 7). The glassy sea is like unto a crystal that symbolizes the Laver Sea of the Holy Tabernacle and Holy Temple. All things previous to this point of Vision 1’s capstone section are reflected in the Glassy Sea. The original Laver Sea was held up, in the Temple, by twelve gold oxen (symbols for the Christ) representing the completeness of the twelve tribes of Israel and the twelve stars (which encircle Window of the Open Book) to the woman’s God-crown.
At this point it is made clear that the four living creatures (Zoon) are in the center (midst) and at the same time on the circumference of the city. To me, this speaks of Window of the Open Book. These living creatures (four beasts) have six (Truth) wings (of wisdom and intelligence). The lion (Word) is omnipotent, the calf/ox (Christ) is omniscient, the face of a man (Son of man – Christianity) is omnipresent, and the flying eagle (Science) is omni-active. The four beasts are the divine calculus. As verse 7 describes the divine calculus as “a lion” – the Word (all-power of good [Spirit]), “a calf” – the Christ (all-intelligence of good), “a face of a man” – Christianity (all-Mind of good), and “a flying eagle” – Science (all-activity of good). Then in verse 8 it describes the surrounding Keystone Windows surrounding the center (hub) Squared-Cycle of Christian Science with the four beasts having “each of them six wings about him; and they were full of eyes [protected vision or sight] within [spiritual consciousness]”
Vision 1 has been established!
THE SEVENTH GOLDEN CANDLESTICK CHURCH/VISION
Vision 7 – Love
This is the foundation stone that accompanies Vision 1, so I am having you read this section before we move on to Vision 2. This Vision is about the Oneness of the Christ, the full Revelation that is now established. There is only one Christian Domination in this Vision – that of Christian Science. The subject of marriage between the Lamb of God and the Bride (the Holy City) is the topic of the Introduction. This is the Oneness, the completeness of man – the Lamb (the Bridegroom) of Vision One and the Bride of Vision Four are one, and the manchild (New Jerusalem artichoke of “Recapitulation”) is the Comforter promised by Jesus Christ.
This marriage could also be the idea that two books become one – that of the Bible and Science and Health. This is symbolized in a window of the edifice located in the Grand Gallery’s North side (North for the Word). Inside the circle (a symbol for unity) of the window there is somewhat like a pyramid of two books. The Bible is the body while Science and Health is the head or capstone. Again, this makes sense in that the outer cycle of Window of the Open Book represents the Open Bible (Keystone), while the hub-center-capstone-inner cycle of the Window of the Open Book represents the Open Book – Science and Health.
The oneness results in the understanding of the full truth of man’s dominion, just as the marriage does.
The Foundation Stones – or the Outer Branch – of Love as Mind and Love as Love
Love as Mind – The Bride
In this first section of Vision Seven there is a new picture. The full realization of man’s dominion has come to pass and there is no more sea (unconscious error), unrest, or separation between God and man. The Bride appears adorned, protected, and equipped in every way for the full activity as consort (association, assembly, spouse, harmony) is. And She is recognized in this capacity – Every time a proof is established (V. 4) it is credited as being another garment of fine linen put on the Bride. Every time this is done it is the “saints” (the Christian Scientists) that have demonstrated Truth, or put into operation the divine calculus, to put out the dragon’s tricks. The Six Points of Mary Baker Eddy’s Place is her tea jacket, or her coat of many colors. I will speak more about this pamphlet during the Capstone Vision of Principle.
Mary Baker Eddy writes on this last Vision of Revelation in the last portion of “The Apocalypse.”
“In Revelation xxi. 1. we read:—
“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
“Man’s present possibilities
“The Revelator had not yet passed the transitional stage in human experience called death, but he already saw a new heaven and a new earth. Through what sense came this vision to St. John? Not through the material visual organs for seeing, for optics are inadequate to take in so wonderful a scene. Were this new heaven and new earth terrestrial or celestial, material or spiritual? They could not be the former, for the human sense of space is unable to grasp such a view. The Revelator was on our plane of existence, while yet beholding what the eye cannot see, — that which is invisible to the uninspired thought. This testimony of Holy Writ sustains the fact in Science, that the heavens and earth to one human consciousness, that consciousness which God bestows, are spiritual, while to another, the unillumined human mind, the vision is material. This shows unmistakably that what the human mind terms matter and spirit indicates states and stages of consciousness.
“Nearness of Deity
“Accompanying this scientific consciousness was another revelation, even the declaration from heaven, supreme harmony, that God, the divine Principle of harmony, is ever with men, and they are His people. Thus man was no longer regarded as a miserable sinner, but as the blessed child of God. Why? Because St. John’s corporeal sense of the heavens and earth had vanished, and in place of this false sense was the spiritual sense, the subjective state by which he could see the new heaven and new earth, which involve the spiritual idea and consciousness of reality. This is Scriptural authority for concluding that such a recognition of being is, and has been, possible to men in this present state of existence, — that we can become conscious, here and now, of a cessation of death, sorrow, and pain. This is indeed a foretaste of absolute Christian Science. Take heart, dear sufferer, for this reality of being will surely appear sometime and in some way. There will be not more pain, and all tears will be wiped away. When you read this, remember Jesus’ words, ‘The kingdom of God is within you.’ This spiritual consciousness is therefore a present possibility.
“The Revelator also takes into view, adapted to console the weary pilgrim, journeying ‘uphill all the way.’” (S&H 572:19-574:4)
Rev. 21:2 – “And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down [descending] from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” Was Mary Baker Eddy asking for her bride apparel at the time she asked for a Christmas tea jacket, as she was to be married with her husband – the Bridegroom Lamb? In the Bible the Bride’s adornment symbolized seven veils of protection, the seven synonymous terms for God. Joseph’s coat (jacket) of many colors was a symbol of the Bow (Arch) Covenant that God made with Noah and his Christ Son.
Paul Smillie speaks about this tea jacket in his book In Defense of Mary Baker Eddy and the Remnant of Her Seed. He says that Robert Peel’s third biography on Mary Baker Eddy mentions the request for a tea jacket and claims that she received a whole bunch of them. This was a lie. In fact, there was not one jacket sent to Mary Baker Eddy! Not one of her students understood the importance of a tea jacket.
In Genesis, after the curse of Adam, the Lord dresses (clothes) Adam in animal skins. I believe these skins are the seven layers of skin found on the human body. I also feel that these seven layers of skin are the seven seals on the Bible from Vision 1. The Christ Mind must translate these seven skins (of Adam man) back to God.
Love as Love – The City’s Active River is “Expressed”
This section of the Vision contrasts the false types of communion and trade associated with the Babylonian woman (The Mother Church). The pure river is the water of life, the true teachings – it is found in the midst (center) of the (interior of the) street and on either side of the river. This is where the Cross of Travis is (the four rivers are one) and in the union of the four rivers is the tree of life (Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures is found in the center hub of Window of the Open Book, and the open book is the tree of life with the pages (leaves) for the healing of the twelve nations. This tree has the twelve-manner of fruit (“Fruitage” demonstrations as the eighteenth chapter). The golden street (which is really a river) runs from East to West while the river runs from North to South. The waters issued from the East Gate, or the Gate Beautiful, not just healing the individual but the collective. Now there is no more curse of Adam (fallen man) and no more curse of the serpent. A definition of curse is blasphemy “breaking God’s Law”. There is no more breaking of God’s Law at this point.
Rev. 22:3, 4 – “And there shall be no more [Adam/serpent-red dragon] curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb [spiritual idea] shall be in it; and his servants [spiritual ideas] shall serve him: And they shall see his face [the face of a man reflects God’s face]; and his name shall be in their foreheads [at the forefront of man’s thoughts].”
Rev. 22:5 – “And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle [material organized church], neither light of the sun [Jesus idolatry]; for the Lord God giveth them light [Science]; and they shall reign for ever and ever.”
“And there shall be no longer any night or darkness there and they shall have no need for” material light sources (human intellectualism through church and religion) “for God will give them the only light they need – spiritual illumination and enlightenment [via “a little open book”]. All shall dwell in this eternal realization forever and ever as the knowledge [Science] of the New Jerusalem [artichoke (sunflower) matrix of “Recapitulation” – a divine calculus] becomes a daily practical realization in your thought and in mine.”
In between the Keystone Windows are the twelve spokes of the wheel of the divine calculus (Window of the Open Book), or the twelve candlesticks of the one Church. These candlesticks follow the pattern of the Christianity cycle for the seven synonymous terms for God. It is here that we remember the time of the wedding as being twelve midnight, which correlates with the cardinal point of the Word – the North; and we can see the two Keystones of the Woman God-crowned (Christ as the Word) and the Lord and Lamb (Christianity as the Word) being married, or united “as two individual natures in one.”
This being said, we must return to Christian Science with…
THE CYCLE OF CHRISTIANITY (begins with Principle and goes clockwise)
Christian Science in the tone of Love
“The writer’s present feeble sense of Christian Science closes with St. John’s Revelation as recorded by the great apostle, for his vision is the acme of this Science as the Bible reveals it.
“In the following Psalm one word shows, though faintly, the light which Christian Science throws on the Scriptures by substituting for the corporeal sense [of Jehovah, as she speaks about in S&H on page 576:26], the incorporeal or spiritual sense of Deity: —
“[Love] maketh me to lie down in green pastures: [love] leadeth me beside the still waters.
“[Love] restoreth my soul [spiritual sense]: [love] leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.
“Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house [the consciousness] of [love] for ever.” (S&H 577:28-578:18)
The First Step Up – or the Inner Branch – of Love as Spirit and Love as Life
Love as Spirit – The Tabernacle of God
Rev. 21:3 – “And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them [for earth as the Bridegroom and heaven as the Bride are one], and they shall be his people, and God himself be with them, and be their God.” This tabernacle is found in the center hub of Window of the Open Book, for the Open Book itself (Science itself) is the tabernacle of God.
The appearance of the Bride brings the realization that God is with man; that God dwells on Earth, and is forever present (not to be located in a church building, a physical structure). “For God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.”
Jesus tells John to write the words, for they are faithful and true – from the white horseman of Revelation 19 of the Sixth Vision/Church (Truth).
Love as Truth – The Gates are always Open to the City
Men of all nations shall walk in the light of the city (divine Science). The City is ever lighted and open to all. Here a new (original) set of values is established, and it is all an individual (undivided) experience.
Rev. 21:25 – “And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night.” “The gates of this city are never shut; all may enter, for there is no night in the City. There is only perpetual spiritual illumination and enlightenment.” Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures is always an Open Book.
Rev. 21:26 – “And they [the chapters] shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.” “And universal glory and honor are brought into it.”
Rev. 21:27 – “And there shall in no wise enter into it anything that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie; but they which are written in the Lamb’s [Reverend Mary Baker Eddy’s] book of life.” “Nothing unclean [polluted] can enter the city [little open book, for our true identity is established by Science] nor any lie, but only those whose spiritual identity has been established in eternal Life [can enter].”
The Second Step Up – or the Inner Branch – of Love as Soul and Love as Life in the tone of the Word
Love as Soul – God’s identity is the only identity there is
At this point there is the citizenship of the City that is found to be the Son-ship of God’s Child. This is the Oneness and brings eternal Life.
Rev. 21:8. “The mental malpractitioners, ignorant or malicious, will suffer consuming, choking torment and mental anguish brought about by their own false beliefs until they cease from doing them. This final purification is followed by the realization of eternal Life which means there is no death, no second death nor any belief in a degree of death.” Many Christian Scientists accept that the first death is the false belief that we are born into a material body and that the second death is the belief that we die out of a material body. Mary Baker Eddy writes in “Christian Science verses Spiritualism” on page 77 on line 5: “Existence continues to be a belief of corporeal sense until the Science of being is reached. Error brings its own self-destruction both here and hereafter, for mortal mind creates its own physical conditions. Death will occur on the next plane of existence as on this, until the spiritual understanding of Life is reached. Then, and not until then, will it be demonstrated that ‘the second death hath no power.’” There are also organizations, like the Masons, who believe in degrees of death. This could be spiritually interpreted as giving up our false beliefs that life exists in matter not all at once but in degrees.
Love as Life – Communion is the recognition of God and His Christ
The Temple is the point of communion or contact with God, the true at-one-ment. There is no materially organized Church. There is no time clock.
“In Revelation xxi. 22, further describing this holy city, the beloved Disciple writes: —
“And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
“The shrine celestial
“There was no temple, — that is, no material structure in which to worship God, for he must be worshipped in spirit and in love. The word temple also means body. The Revelator was familiar with Jesus’ use of this word, as when Jesus spoke of his material body as the temple to be temporarily rebuilt (John ii. 21). What further indication need we of the real man’s incorporeality than this, that John saw heaven and earth with ‘no temple [body] therein’? This kingdom of God ‘is within you,’—is within reach of man’s consciousness here, and the spiritual idea reveals it. In divine Science, man possesses this recognition of Harmony consciously in proportion to his understanding of God.
“Divine sense of Deity
“The term Lord, as used in our version of the Old Testament, is often synonymous with Jehovah, and expresses the Jewish concept, not yet elevated to deific apprehension through spiritual transfiguration. Yet the word gradually approaches a higher meaning [which I point out must be Love]. This human sense of Deity yields to the divine sense, even as the material sense of personality yields to the incorporeal sense of God and man as the infinite Principle and infinite idea, — as one Father with His universal family, held in the gospel of Love. The Lamb’s wife presents the unity of male and female as no longer two wedded individuals, but as two individual natures in one; and this compounded spiritual individuality reflects God as Father-Mother, not as a corporeal being. In this divinely united spiritual consciousness, there is no impediment to eternal bliss, — to the perfectibility of God’s creation.” (S&H 574:25-577:11)
“The city of our God
“This spiritual, holy habitation has no boundary nor limit, but its four cardinal points [as the divine calculus] are: first, the Word of Life [the Open Bible Keystone], Truth [the Woman God-crowned Keystone], and Love [the Lord and Lamb Keystone]; second, the Christ, the spiritual idea of God [represented by the Madonna and Child Keystone, the Oil Lamb Keystone, and the Palm Leaves of Salvation Keystone]; third Christianity, which is the outcome of the divine Principle of the Christ-idea in Christian history [represented by the Cross of Calvary Keystone, the Pomegranates Keystone, and the Harvested Wheat Keystone]; fourth, Christian Science, which to-day and forever interprets this great example and the great Exemplar [represented by the Golden Shore of Love and the Peaceful Sea of Harmony Keystone, the Concord Grapevine Keystone, and the Big Dipper Keystone]. This city of our God has no need of sun or satellite, for Love is the light of it, and divine Mind is its own interpreter. All who are saved must walk in this light. Mighty potentates and dynasties will lay down their honors within the heavenly city. Its gates open towards light and glory both within and without, for all is good, and nothing can enter that city, which ‘defileth,…or maketh a lie.’” (S&H 577:12)
In the nineteenth century we had the twelve Stargates corresponding with the names of Christian Scientists – the twelve stars on Window of the Open Book. The four major stars are the four Board Members (of 1894) and the eight minor stars are twelve loyal students to Mary Baker Eddy. These twelve people were called First Members.
The Capstone Head – or the Trunk of Principled Science in the tone of Love as Principle
Love as Principle – The New Jerusalem artichoke is recognized and established
The Bride City brings forth the qualities of illumination (Light), and it is associated with the New Jerusalem that is clear and like a crystal; like a jasper (symbolic of spiritual illumination).
“The Revelator also takes in another view, adapted to console the weary pilgrim, journeying ‘uphill all the way.’ [I see this “uphill all the way” as the footsteps of Truth climbing up the Major Pyramid Matrix of Truth.]
“He writes, in Revelation xxi. 9: —
“And there came unto me one of the seven angels [that are held in the hand of the Son of Man in the first chapter, thus, they are the seven angel stars for the seven candlestick churches] which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will show thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.
“Vials of wrath [Love] and consolation
“This ministry of Truth, this message from divine Love, carried John away in spirit. It exalted him till he became conscious of the spiritual facts of being and the ‘New Jerusalem [artichoke], coming down from God, out of heaven,’ — the spiritual outpouring of bliss and glory, which he describes as the city which ‘lieth foursquare.’ The beauty of this text is that the sum total of human misery, represented by the seven angelic vials full of seven plagues, has full compensation in the law of Love. Note this, — that the very message, or swift-winged thought, which poured forth hatred and torment [to mortal mind], brought also the great city, the four equal sides of which were heaven-bestowed and heaven-bestowing.” (S&H 572:19-574:24)
The word bestowed has to do with putting to use, and is also a gift. This tells us that the great city that comes from peace and harmony (heaven) is a gift for us to put to use just as the rod of Vision 3 is a gift for John to measure the Holy Temple. It is a system, a matrix structure that we can actually use as a key or code to open up the Holy Bible and the Christian Science Textbook. This means that we must understand what Window of the Open Book really is. And that it also depicts the spiritual wedlock between the Woman God-crowned Keystone and the Lord and Lamb Keystone, for symbolically, the wedding feast takes place at twelve o’clock, the time that would be depicted with both hands in the twelve position – directly (as the spoke) in between these two Keystone windows!
“Think of this, dear reader, for it will lift the sackcloth from your eyes, and you will behold the soft-winged dove descending upon you. The very circumstance, which your suffering sense deems wrathful and afflictive, Love can make an angel entertained unawares. Then thought gently whispers: ‘Come hither! Arise from your false consciousness into the true sense of Love, and behold the Lamb’s wife, — Love wedded to its own spiritual idea.’ Then cometh the marriage feast, for this revelation will destroy forever the physical plagues imposed by material sense.” (S&H 574:3-575:6) These material senses are the five unwise virgins who forgot to bring enough oil (“Consecration; charity; gentleness; prayer; heavenly inspiration” – what the five wise virgins had within their consciousness) with them so they were locked out of the marriage feast.
(a) Love as Principle as Mind – a Window (Mary Baker Eddy described herself as being a window.)
Rev. 21: 11. “Having the glory of God and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal [like a window];” would not this jasper stone be like the Keystone Windows to Window of the Open Book?
And this city was gloriously lighted with spiritual illumination, with Mind-Science, a perfect reflection of the One infinite light.
(g) Love as Principle as Love – a Window
Rev. 21:21. “and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass [a window].”
“Revelation’s pure zenith
“This heavenly city, lighted by the Sun of Righteousness, — this New Jerusalem [artichoke flower], this infinite All, which to us seems hidden in the mist of remoteness, — reached St. John’s vision while yet he tabernacled with mortals.” (S&H 576:3)
The street of the city is pure gold (divine in nature). The street is The Way of perfection, the Christ Way.
“The prophet Isaiah has told you of a highway that shall be called the way of holiness (Isaiah 35:8). The street [layout of the pages of the Open Book] of this City is pure gold, ‘as it were transparent glass [like a stained glass window],’ symbolizing that the Revelation is a highway [the highest mental path to be taken] whereby we realize purified perfection and reflection. All are included in the one pure and perfect reflection, which is the way of Holiness.”
(b) Love as Principle as Spirit – a Wall for the city foursquare
Rev. 21:12. “And had a wall great and high,”
In the light of Revelation 21:12’s first part (section a) we see walls (complete protection. This is the city foursquare (divine Science) and it is completely protected. The twelve stars (the light) are the twelve nations of Israel found in the woman’s God-crown and they form the connecting links known as the walls of the city foursquare.
(f) Love as Principle as Truth – a Wall for the city foursquare with a Window for the city of our God
Rev. 21:18-21. “And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass [a window].
“And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;
“The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, and amethyst.
“And the twelve [Star]gates were twelve pearls [Star angels]; every several [Star]gate was of one pearl [one spiritual messenger]:”
Rev. 21:21 – “And the twelve gates were twelve pearls [Star angels]; every several [distinct] gate was of one pearl” goes back to the twelve Stargates of the city foursquare. The “one pearl” being a pearl of great price is spoken of by Mary Baker Eddy as being the first Commandment – having no other gods before me [Mind].
The city is “garnished with all manner of precious stones [jewels].” There are twelve jewels (twelve key-stones, or twelve key’s tones) on the breastplates belonging to the High Priest (Aaron being the first). It is the privilege of all citizens of the City to become like the High Priest where they can enter into the most Holy of Holies (Oneness with God). When this happens there is no more ecclesiastical despotic leadership forming walls of limitations. When this happens all becomes a sanctuary having no walls or barriers (the City of our God – absolute Christian Science and Christian Science) where the citizens complete spiritual fellowship and communion is independent from organized religion.
(c) Love as Principle as Soul – the city foursquare is the city of our God
“Rev. 21: 12-13 – “and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels [which are the Stargates], and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
“On the East three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.” 
“I have grouped the gates in four sets of threes to call to your remembrance the manner in which the children of Israel were camped outside the tent of meeting. [This was to present to you the divine calculus of the Word, the Christ, Christianity, and Christian Science.] While the tent of meeting had only one entrance [via Mind], the New Jerusalem has twelve Stargates [angel gates] through which all may enter [upon reading what lies within the hub of the Wheel of the Open Book via its first twelve angelic gates called chapters]. There are many entrances – many different ways of entering in, always through spiritual qualities.”
In Revelation the twelve tribes (stars) are Judah, the dominion of the law; Reuben, strength; Asher, happiness, strength and consecration; Naphtali, blessing of the Lord; Manasseh, blessings and fruitage; Simeon, hearing and obedience; Levi associations held in holiness and purity; Issachar, recompense and reward; Zebulun, spiritual activity; Joseph [Ephraim], fruitage; and Benjamin, protection.
“The royally divine [Star] gates
“As the Psalmist saith, ‘Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion [“Spiritual foundation and superstructure; inspiration; spiritual strength.” “Glossary”], on the sides of the north, the city of the great King [which must be Principle].’ It is indeed a city of the Spirit, fair, royal, and square. Northward, its [three] gates [in the tone of the Word as the Word, the Christ as the Word, and Christianity as the Word] open to the [first major Stargate which is the] North Star [shining upon the Open Bible Keystone], the Word, the polar magnet of Revelation; eastward [in the tone of the Word as the Christ, the Christ as the Christ, and Christianity as the Christ], to the [Day] star [the second Major Stargate for the Word Cycle – the Word as the Christ] seen by the [three] Wisemen of the Orient [East = Christ], who followed it to the manger of Jesus [this star shines upon the Madonna and Child Keystone window]; southward, [in the tone of the Word as Christianity, the Christ as Christianity, and Christianity as Christianity] to the genial tropics, with the Southern Cross [Acrux, which is the third Major Stargate for the Word as Christianity] in the skies—the Cross of Calvary [Keystone window], which binds human society into solemn union; westward, [in the tone of the Word as Christian Science, the Christ as Christian Science, and Christianity as Christian Science] to the grand realization of the Golden Shore of Love and the Peaceful Sea of Harmony [Keystone Window with the fourth Major Stargate of the Moon for the Word as divine Science]. (S&H 575:22-576:2)
(e) Love as Principle as Life – The city foursquare (of the wall) is the city of our God and the Vitruvian Woman is generic man (you and me)
Rev. 21:15-17. “And he that talked with me had a golden reed [a divine Holy Grail or measuring device] to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
“And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
“And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.” This is the Vitruvian Woman!
“The city foursquare
“This sacred city, described in the Apocalypse (xxi. 16) as one that ‘lieth foursquare’ and cometh ‘down from God, out of heaven,’ represents the light and glory of divine Science. The builder and maker of this New Jerusalem [artichoke sunflower] is God, as we read in the book of Hebrews; and it is ‘a city which hath foundations.’ [This refers, I feel, to the twelve Keystone windows for the city of our God.] The description is metaphoric. Spiritual teaching must always be by symbols. Did not Jesus illustrate the truths he taught by the mustard-seed and the prodigal? Taken in its allegorical sense, the description of the city as foursquare has a profound meaning. [I also know that it can be described as having four squares.] The four sides of our city are the Word, Christ, Christianity, and divine Science [and the four squares are also made up of the Word, Christ, Christianity (these three squared cycles are located in the circumference of the Window with the twelve stars), and divine Science (this square is located in the Window’s hub as the Textbook itself)]; ‘and the [Star]gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.’ This city is wholly spiritual, as its four sides indicate.” (S&H 575:7-575:21)
A plumb line cord has a weight at one end that is used to determine verticality (uprightness). A line directed to the center hub of gravity of Earth is also a plumb line. A plume line determines the radius of a circle. The gift, the golden reed (rod of divine Science – the city foursquare) is a standard of measurement for the circular city (of our God), thus I see it measuring radius lines (spokes of a wheel). What this all really means is that the plume line is the acme of perfection, his uprightness, the measure of a man-angel = spiritual man, the Vitruvian Woman.
“Because four is a symbol of perfection to the Greeks and a symbol of completeness to Hebrew writers, I say that the City was Four Square, spiritually perfect as was the four-sided Tent of Meeting, with its length, breadth, and height equal. It was a symbol of God’s presence, while in the New Jerusalem God Himself is always present, as you are soon to know.”
(d) Love as Principle as Principle – the Keystone Foundations of the city of our God
Rev. 21:14 – “And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.”
The Foundations of the city has twelve [key]stones with the names of the Apostles who were sent on missions to preach the gospel. The New Jerusalem (Revelation of the Science of Man) is established in teachings and demonstrations.
I see these twelve foundations as the twelve Keystone windows (or clear Key’s tones) in Window of the Open Book. Apostle means: “to send away.” The Christ is sent away, out into the world where there are no protective walls (of the city foursquare), to the cardinal points (etc.) of the city of our God (absolute Christian Science and Christian Science) to heal the twelve Nations (compound man). Jesus actually sent out his apostles so that they could establish his works and teachings that were founded upon absolute Christian Science and Christian Science (even though they did not call it by this name back then).
We could say then, that chapters 1-12 of the Textbook must go out into the four corners of the world to establish the teachings and works of Mary Baker Eddy. This has to be understood before we can use the plumb line cord to measure the city foursquare, the New Jerusalem.
These “apostles of the Lamb” are also the twelve sections to the Christian Science Bible Lessons (within the Quarterly). At least they should be, before Boston mucked up the symbolism within the weekly (of seven days) Bible Lessons (3 months x 4 months = 1 year, or twenty-four seven).
So I, Mother Hood, have recognized the New Jerusalem artichoke (Science of Man a.k.a. “Recapitulation”) within Window of the Open Book, and I have now established it to you. You are now ready to take the first step up to the Minor Pyramid Matrix of Principle with its second (Spirit) and sixth (Truth) visions.

 The Root of David could also be called the Chord of Love.
 On page 74 of Building of The Mother Church (which is printed in 2009) by Joseph Armstrong, is one of Mary Baker Eddy’s family crests at the top of her letter. There are two majestic lions standing upon their hind legs on each side of a circular globe divided up into four sections.
 The letter h is not seen on the scroll.
 “root – the tone from whose overtones a chord is composed: the lowest tone of a chord in normal position” (Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary)
 I am willing to concede that Mary Baker Eddy actually patterned her stained glass window after the Word of Revelation so that we might be able to understand Revelation’s code matrix better. She says, “Spiritual teaching must always be by symbols.” What better way to teach Christian Scientists than to utilize symbols in her Church edifice?
 As depicted in the above diagram.
 One year she told her followers that what she wanted as a gift for Christmas was a tea jacket. I know Mary Baker Eddy did not literally care to have a tea jacket, but she must have wanted her followers to understand the symbol behind what a tea jacket is. It is her rose flowered coat of divine Science (Jacob and Jack [even the jacket was named for a man named Jack] are rooted to the same name). “Jacob…Inspiration; the revelation of Science, in which the so-called material senses yield to the spiritual sense of Life and Love.” (S&H 589:5) She wanted her students and followers to demonstrate this in their lives.
 There is an interesting testimony in “Fruitage” pages 650-652 called a convincing investigation. In it the person speaks about a candle and a pearl of great price (it seems to fit in with Revelation): “While I have testified to those around me and in many localities, of my healing in Christian Science, I feel that it is high time I put the candle in the candlestick where all who will may see….I have never been able to find the paragraph which I had read so many times over, the words seemed to have slipped away from me, but my joy knew no bounds at having found the pearl of great price. By the continued reading of the book I was entirely healed, and for fourteen years I have not seen a day of physical suffering. – Miss L. M., Rome, N.Y.”

 These are all Mary Baker Eddy’s own interpolations.
 This is in the tone of Mind.
 This is in the tone of Spirit.
 This is in the tone of Soul.
 “Valley. Depression; meekness; darkness.
“Though the way is dark in mortal sense, divine Life and Love illumine it, destroy the unrest of mortal thought, the fear of death, and the supposed reality of error. Christian Science, contradicting sense, maketh the valley to bud and blossom as the rose [Window].” (S&H 596:20 & 23-27)
 This is in the tone of Principle.
 This is in the tone of Life.
 This is in the tone of Truth.
 This is in the tone of Love.

 Mary Baker Eddy’s own interpolation.
 The Square for divine Science is also the Square for the Word with its four Major Stars in each corner and its capstone is the Christian Science Textbook (a little open book) found in the hub of Window of the Open Book. This book symbolizes the seeds (of thought) within the Jerusalem artichoke. On the north side is divine Science as the Word, on the east side is divine Science as the Christ, on the south side is divine Science as Christianity, and on the west side is divine Science as Christian Science.
 Even if these three Keystones do not go with the city of our God, we could use the spokes (of time) as these three synonyms for the Word, for we would have them as the numbers – of 2 (Life) which comes before the Open Bible Keystone, 1 (Truth) which comes right after the Open Bible Keystone and before the Woman God-crowned Keystone, and 12 (Love) which comes right after the Woman God-crowned Keystone – on the clock.
 This is divine Science as the city foursquare.
 S&H 592:25
 It took me many years before I figured out that the flower design in the center of the Window of the Open Book had any symbolic meaning or any significance at all to the Window’s design. In fact, it was not until after I had a Vision Dream speaking to me about artichokes as symbols for the divine calculus that I figured out the importance of the remote flower surrounding the little open book.

 Manasseh, the first son of Joseph, replaces the tribe of Dan “animal magnetism.”
 These are the qualities presented (via Scripture) in SAJP (page 207), however, Mary Baker Eddy, within her “Glossary” does not define but a few the sons of Jacob with favorable qualities or definitions.
 The base of the Great Pyramid of Giza is foursquare. I only mention this because I see Zion (the mountain) as a pyramid. This pyramid of Zion is for the squared-cycle of the Word and the capstone’s squared-cycle of divine Science. In March 2013 I found out that the Great Pyramid of Giza actually has eight sides.
 The twelve thousand times twelve thousand gets us 144,000, a gross or complete congregation of the Christ mass (a compound idea which is man).
