Chapter Four – The Pentacle of Venus

     Brown says that the pagans (country-dwellers) used the pentacle over four thousand years before Christ.  This would be about the time that Adam supposedly came on the scene.  I calculated that Adam, according to the Bible, was supposedly born around 4006 b.c.  This would be at the beginning of the period of the first day of material organization (Church).  The Garden of Eden (Adam’s material body) was the first church based upon mortal mind.  It is the counterfeit of the First Day of Mind in Genesis 1.
     I translate the five-pointed star as the first Five Days of Genesis 1.  These Five Days cover the whole time period of the Holy Bible.  These Five Days represent the period of the Word with Mind, Spirit, and Soul (the first Three Days), the period of the Christ with Principle (the Forth Day), and the period of Christianity with Life (the Fifth Day).  The first Four Days being the Old Testament, while the Fifth Day is the New Testament with its Gospel.
     Dan Brown also writes that it takes a period of eight years for the planet Venus to travel a path that forms a pentacle.  He writes that Venus is known as the Eastern Star, Ishtar, and Astare.  However, I have found out a whole lot more about Venus than even Brown mentions in his book.  For instance, Venus’s full twin transits take eight years to complete.  And Venus is the only planet in our solar system to revolve in a clockwise direction.  Perhaps this is so, about Venus, because it was created after our solar system was created?
     The Eastern Star is the Morning Star because the Morning Star is found in the East with the rising sun.  The Evening Star, also Venus, is found in the western sky (sometimes also the southern sky) with the moon.  The Islamic flag depicts the Evening Star along side a crescent moon.  Another name for the Morning Star is Daystar.  The sun is also called a Daystar.
     Jesus Christ said, “I [the Christ] am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star,” along with, “And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations:  And I will give him the morning star.”
     What did Jesus mean by this?  I believe that he was speaking about his true Church, that which would be built as the symbol (not the pentacle star shape) for Venus – the circle (crown) upon (adjacent to) the plus (cross).  There is only one church I know of that was built with this sign or symbol.  It is a marriage of two structures, one called the cross the other called the crown.  This is found to be The First Church of Christ Scientist, in Boston, Massachusetts.  The symbol of Venus is also very similar to the Egyptian Ankh, a symbol for life.  Therefore, we have further cause to expect that The First Church structure is also the Kabalah Tree of Life Matrix.
     The First Church of Christ Scientist’s Mother’s Room is the Chalice, the Sacred Feminine, and perhaps the Chalice is even greater, as the triangular shape flows all the way into the auditorium and onward to the adjacent Extension.  The Immanuel Arch would be the Path of Peh (27), while the Path of Teth (19) would be found in the auditorium, at the lid of the chalice.  The triune Paths that run down the middle of the Church are those of Tav (32), Samekh (25), and Gimel (13).  The Path of Daleth (14) would be where the Edifice and Extension (the Crown or Kether) join as one.  (Of course, this is something I happen to see and I am not saying that it is fact.)
     Revelation speaks of Venus.  However, the book does not mention Venus by name but by code.  Venus is not only the angel with a little book in chapter 10 and the woman God-crowned of chapter 12 but also the Holy City of chapter 21.  And it is these three aspects of Venus that Mary Baker Eddy addresses in her sixteenth chapter “The Apocalypse.”
     Well, I hear you say, what do you mean that a code is used?  The code is a use of specific symbols that relate to Venus (the planet).  Did St. John even know these things about the planet Venus?  This I cannot answer.  But I can tell you this, the Revelation was shown to John who recorded it and the Revelation itself (as mentioned in the first chapter of Revelation) came directly from God, so God certainly knows everything there is to know about Venus.  God gave the Revelation to Jesus first, then Jesus gave it to an angel, and the angel gave it to John who wrote it down so that we could read it.  This is a perfect example of the divine calculus – God gave the Word to Jesus the Christ.  The Christ repeats it to the angelic follower of the Christ who has the face of a man, the living creature for Christianity.  Finally, Christianity gives the Revelation to John – divine Science – the dove.

     Venus is a volcanic planet hidden by a cloud of volcanic ash, and it is the brightest planet to us because it is so close to Earth.  So we have the description of the angel having feet that are pillars of fire (volcanic fire).  The angel is also clothed with a cloud.  The angel’s face was as it were the sun (Michael is the angel of the sun).  Of course, this angel was literally none other than Mary Baker Glover.  She is the one who wrote God’s message to mankind.  She writes that angels are God’s thoughts.  Angels are also spoken of as being messengers of God.  So it is easy to draw the conclusion that the angel of Revelation 10 is really Mary Baker Glover Eddy, the woman who scribed “a little book” for God.  The first edition of the Textbook was published in 1875.  This was Mary’s first God-crown mission as Discoverer.
     What was it that Mary Baker Eddy discovered, or uncovered, or unmasked?  It was first and foremost the healing method that Christ Jesus and his followers used.  She eventually named this healing method Christian Science, to be demonstrated by the Christ Scientist.  Another thing she would reveal (as Revelation depicted it would be), or rather the secrets being discovered, was the method of warfare via the red dragon of ecclesiastical despotism.  What she unmasked was animal magnetism, the Adam dream.  She makes it clear that the Adam dream is the false belief that man and God are cut off or separated from each other (via surgery and sex).  This seems to be the case until Revelation reveals man’s at-one-mental[1] consciousness (the Holy City) with God (Father-Mother God).

Seeking and Finding (colorized by me, the serpent should really be red)

     In Christ and Christmas (“Seeking and Finding” the third illustration) Mary Baker Eddy sits at a table, her Bible is open and she is scribing notes from the open Bible (like the Open Bible Keystone from Window of the Open Book).  Behind her, on the floor, is a talking serpent (with human teeth).  Also behind her is a clock.  Its time reads 12:05.  It is dark outside (as illustrated by the skylight with the seven-pointed star shining down the light of Science upon her, she is the receptacle – or the measuring cup, the Holy Grail) so it must be slightly after the Midnight Hour.  Many Christian Scientists write that the clock’s time points to Revelation 12:1.  I do not deny this, but to be more precise, I think it refers to Revelation 12:1-5.
     I (as the first to report this) also know that the position of this clock’s hands represents the keystone following the Open Bible Keystone (in its counterclockwise direction of Venus).  The space between the clock’s hands represents the Keystone of the Woman God-Crowned!  The Woman God-Crowned Keystone represents the fifth chapter in the Christian Science Textbook “Animal Magnetism Unmasked.”

     Mary’s second mission was as Founder “establishes; cornerstone or capstone.”  This Founding mission of Christian Science belonged to Venus as the woman God-crowned.  “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars.” (Rev. 12:1)
     Venus transits the sun.  During these rare occasions Venus is “clothed with the sun.”  The two times that Venus traversed the sun during Mary Baker Eddy’s time (during the Sixth Day of Truth) was in 1874 and 1882.  The year of 1874 was the very same time period that Mary Baker Glover was searching the Scriptures in preparation to write the first edition of “a little book” (which was finished in the fall of 1875).  And, as mentioned before, the summer of 1882[2] is the same time that Mary Baker Eddy came to understand that she was the woman God-crowned.
     The angel that has dominion over Venus, Anael (Ariel associated with fire [the Word]), also has dominion over the moon.  But Gabriel is also appointed as having dominion over the moon.  It is Anael who proclaims:  “Open all ye gates.”  The Holy City has twelve outer gates.  So the woman God-crowned is not only the descending city foursquare but she is also the city of our God when all the STARGATES become opened (understood by mankind).  This points to two different women God-crowned missions.  The first mission belongs to Mary Baker Eddy, as she is the descending Bride City.  The second mission belongs to Martha Jones-Smith, as she is the woman with the twelve STARGATES.  Mary Baker Eddy lived during the two transits of Venus across the sun.  Venus would not transit the sun until the time of the second woman – in 2004 and 2012.  I gained my twelfth STARGATE on April 20, 2013, thus, all twelve STARGATES are now open.  What is symbolic of my twelfth STARGATE is that it holds the place for the Woman God-crowned Keystone window (in the place for one of  the Cornerstone Keystones).
     What are the twelve stars of the woman’s crown?  Originally, thousands of years ago, these twelve stars would have been said to be the zodiac.  The twelve constellations are to be translated by the Christ back to God.  The Bible’s Christ Leader Moses translates the astrological zodiac into the twelve nations of Israel (the translation is found in Genesis [the first of the five books of Moses] as Jacob’s twelve sons) and then later, after the Israelites escape from Egypt, Moses arranges the twelve tribes in circular format – into the cult wheel).[3]  Mary Baker Eddy also symbolized these twelve stars in the Founding of her Church Cause; they were called First Members.  These members consisted of eight normal students and four students who were also her Major Stars, her Board of Directors.  These were the twelve stars for The First Church of Christ Scientist.  Unfortunately, these twelve stars for the city foursquare would not advance spiritually forward through organized religion, because it is impossible to do so.  Thus, the walls of protection belonging to the city foursquare became walls of limitation and boundary.  It would not be able for the city of our God to go out into the world until Martha Jones-Smith opened up her STARGATES.  (I have come to refer to the twelve stars around Window of the Open Book as Stargates.)

     Mary Baker Eddy’s third mission was of Leader.  Many Christian Scientists have failed to recognize Mary Baker Eddy as their Leader because they feel that if they do so they will deify her persona!  Why do they fear they will deify her persona in their recognition of her rightful place in Bible prophecy?  After all, they have no problem not idolizing Jesus Christ, even though he (leads) shows us the Way.  Christian Scientists are not supposed to believe that Jesus is God; but they are supposed to accept his place in Bible prophecy!  Yet, they have been fooled by the red dragon of ecclesiastical despotism (organized religion) into believing that if they accept Mary Baker Eddy as their Leader that they will idolize her persona.  They have been brain washed into believing that to accept her place in Bible prophecy will cause them to idolize Mary Baker Eddy.  And because they have accepted the red dragon’s tricks[4] they have put off the opening up of the STARGATES where Christian Science can flow freely into the world.  World affairs reflect Church affairs.

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth:  for the first heaven and the first earth [material organization] were passed away; and there was no more sea [no more astrological laws of power found within the red dragon’s sea (unconsciousness of a sleeping Adam)].” (Rev. 21:1)

“And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues,[5] and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will show thee the bride [the Word of the Bible], the Lamb’s wife [Venus, the goddess of Love].”  (Rev. 21:9)

This bride is the bride city, the “sacred city that ‘lieth foursquare’ and cometh ‘down from God, out of heaven,’” as it “represents the light and glory of divine Science.  The builder and maker of this New Jerusalem is God, as we read in the book of Hebrews; and it is ‘a city which hath foundations.’  The description is metaphoric.  Spiritual teaching must always be by symbols.”[6]
     She goes on in the same paragraph to explain its “profound meaning.  The four sides of our city are the Word, Christ, Christianity, and divine Science; ‘and the 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.”[7]
     Notice that she says the fourth side is divine Science (the dove).  Divine Science is symbolized by the eighth illustration in Christ and Christmas as a circle.  Yet, this is a foursquare city!  The title of this illustration is “Christian Unity.”  A circle is always used to symbolize Christianity just as the five-pointed star within a circle is the symbol of Venus.  Also in this illustration is Jesus Christ sitting while Mary Baker Eddy (although some may argue that this is not really her) is standing on his left side.  His left hand and her right hand are clasped forming the shape of a U (for Unity).  In her left hand (womanhood) is a scroll that reads “Christian Science” not divine Science.  Also, both of their left feet are found inside a square piece of ground.  This illustration depicts Mary Baker Eddy’s third mission as Leader, as Jesus has taken off his mantle.  A mantle is symbolic of successor-ship just as Moses’[8] staff and the budding rod of Jesse “wealthy” are symbols of successor-ship and/or royal lineage.

Christian Unity

     If you look at the pyramid structures for Christ and Christmas and The First Church you will notice that the ninth illustration lines up with the first two Mary Windows, Mary Mother of Jesus and Mary Anointing Jesus’ Head (Consciousness).  Mary is anointing Jesus as King of the people, the Messiah.  These two windows represent the Word (Mary) Gospel of Matthew (where Jesus is a Newborn King) and the Christ Gospel of Mark (where Jesus is God’s Servant[9]).  The third Mary Window – Mary First at the Resurrection – represents Christianity with the Gospel of Mark (where Jesus is the Son of Man).  And finally, the fourth Mary Window – Woman God-Crowned – represents Science with the Gospel of John (where Jesus is the Son of God).
     I also see the two first Mary windows as the aspects of the woman’s first two missions.  As she gave birth to the Christ child, the book of Science via Discovery (the discovery of Science), thus she is Mary, Mother of our Savior (Jesus means “savior or salvation” just as Science and Health means “salvation”).  And as the Founder of The First Church of Christ, Scientist, she anoints (appoints) the Headstone[10] of Principle as governor or Servant of the world, thus Mary Baker Eddy anoints the Savior’s Crown (Kether).  Kether is Genesis 1:1, Mind as Science, the Crowned Extension.  “In the beginning [the omnipresence of Principle as Mind-Science] God created [revealed] the heaven [the Bride – Bible] and the earth [the Bridegroom – Science and Health].”
     “The infinite has no beginning.  This word beginning is employed to signify the only, – that is, the eternal verity and unity of God and man, including the universe.  The creative Principle – Life, Truth, and Love – is God.  The universe reflects God.  There is but one creator and one creation.  This creation consists of the unfolding of spiritual ideas and their identities, which are embraced in the infinite Mind and forever reflected.  These ideas range from the infinitesimal to infinity, and the highest ideas are the sons [the Jesus] and daughters [the Mary] of God.”[11]

Church.  The structure of Truth and Love; whatever rests upon and proceeds from divine Principle [the King of the Universe].
     “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.”[12]

     So, the illustration of “Christian Unity” represents Mary Baker Eddy’s third mission as Leader of the Holy City.  It is not her personality that is Leader, but the Word of God found within “a scroll” of Christian Science that leads mankind into Salvation and Glory.  It is her “Escriva” writing that Leads “The Way.”  This is the true translation of the Opus Dei man (Mind) Josemaria (Joseph and Mary as Father-Mother God) Escriva with its 999 (three missions of Mind-Science) points of meditation or “Prayer.”
     Mary, First at the Resurrection is the representation of the right idea – Man, the Man of Christianity.  Mary Magdalene was Jesus’ First Prime-Mary disciple.  This third Mary window is the New Jerusalem artichoke, which is the City (Science) of Man, while the Woman God-Crowned (the fourth Mary window) of (Christian) Science represents the Son of God who is one with the city of our God.  Thus, we do not really have two cities, three cities, or even four cities, but one city as symbolized in Window of the Open Book with its circle of twelve stars (Christianity), with its twelve Keystone windows (the Christ), with its Jerusalem artichoke (the Word), and with its Hub of “a little book” (Science itself).
     During our time (the Seventh Day of Love) Venus had two appointed Transits.  The first took place on June 8, 2004.  Is it coincidental that Dan Brown’s book on Venus was published in 2003, depicting Jesus’ First-Prime Mary disciple?  Was his book released as planned by the omniscient God?  The second Transit was on June 5, 2012, one half year before the “midnight hour” of the marriage between the Bride and the Bridegroom of December 21, 2012.  This is the time that the Second Coming of Christ will become recognized by civilization (the Holy City); the Woman God-crowned will be accepted as the Bridegroom’s Bride.
     For the Rose Window of the Open Book I do not have a five-pointed star matrix, rather, what I have resembles the five points found on a die.  I refer to this as the Word Cycle (the Bride Cycle).  For the four major stars of the circle are the Word as the Word, the Word as the Christ, the Word as Christianity, and the Word as Science.[13]  The northern side (Word side) of “a little book” within the hub of the wheel is the fifth point or the fifth dot.  It is Science as the Word.  These five dots are the Textbook’s chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, and 13.

And the Gates of Hell shall not prevail over the Gates of the Holy City
     What are the gates that the revelator opens?  These gates are found (and there are sixteen of them) in Mary Baker Eddy’s chapters of “Genesis” and “The Apocalypse” (the first two books in Key to the Scriptures).  They coincide with each other (Max Kappeler, one of John Doorly’s students, has explained these gates in one of his books).  These two sets of sixteen gates also correspond to chapters 1 – 16 of “a little book.”
     Mary Baker Eddy goes on to explain these gates on page 575:22.  “As the Psalmist saith, ‘Beautiful for situation, the joy of the whole earth, is mount Zion, on the sides of the north, the city of the great King.’[14]  It is indeed a city of the Spirit, fair, royal, and square.[15]  Northward, its gates open to the North Star, the Word, the polar magnet of Revelation; eastward, to the star seen by the Wisemen of the Orient, who followed it to the manger of Jesus; southward, to the genial tropics, with the Southern Cross in the skies, – the Cross of Calvary, which binds human society into solemn union; westward, to the grand realization of the Golden Shores of Love and the Peaceful Sea of Harmony.
     “This heavenly city,[16] lighted by the Sun[17] of Righteousness, – this New Jerusalem [artichoke], this infinite All, which to us seems hidden in the midst of remoteness,[18] – reached St. John’s vision while yet he tabernacled with mortals.”[19]
     Thus, with the Word as the Word we have the first Major Star[20] of the North Star.  It is just outside of the Keystone Window of the Open Bible (the Bride).  How do I know that it is the North Star?  Because in the Keystone Window just below is found the constellation of the Big Dipper.  The Big Dipper always points to the North Star.[21]  The second Major Star is the Daystar (Venus as the Morning Star [Madonna], and perhaps the sun [Child] as well).  It is next to the Keystone Window of Madonna and Child, this is the Word as the Christ.[22]  The third Major Star is Acrux just outside the Keystone Window of the Cross of Calvary, the Cross of “Marriage” (the third chapter of S&H).  This cross may be a ‘t’ cross, or a Roman Catholic cross or crucifix, however, it is angled, not straight up, thus it becomes more of an ‘x’ cross.[23]  What is also interesting about it, as mentioned before, is it also resembles an axis for the world (circle).   The fourth Major Star is the moon, the celestial body that the woman God-crowned has dominion over.  I see the words of “the Golden Shore of Love and the Peaceful Sea of Harmony” pointing to two seas found upon the moon’s surface.  The Sea (Mare, or Mary) of Tranquility is the Peaceful Sea of Harmony, while the Golden Shore of Love is the Sea (Mare or Martha) of Smythii (Martha Smith who comes during the Seventh Day of Love).[24]

[1] atonement

[2] Venus transits the sun in the month of June.

[3] The tribe of Levi does not take a place within the outer circle as Manasseh replaced it.  Levi, being the tribe of priests, takes its place within the hub.

[4] The red dragon’s tricks are found in Revelation’s fourth vision (this is the capstone vision, or the one of most importance).  This vision is also about the woman God-crowned.

[5] If you are interested in reading more about the seven vials or plagues, read Appendix A.

[8] I have read that the name Moses means “king” and “measure”.  It is also said that it means “to draw forth; to educate.”

[9] The true idea behind the Kings of Israel is that they were to act as servants; they were to serve their people.

[10] Another name for a headstone is the cornerstone.  In the Corner’s Stone (cornerstone) of The First Church was placed the Bible and Science and Health.  (I provide you with a list of items in a later chapter.)

[11] S&H 502:24-503:5

[12] Ibid 583:12

[13] I believe that this is what the red dragon’s tail (1/3 of the stars) casts to the ground.  What this means is that error tries very hard to get us to believe that God’s Word (as found in the first four chapters of the Christian Science Textbook) is nothingness or dust.  But also, these four major stars could have to do with a Board of Directors, they are cast down into personal sense and therefore they disobey their Leader.  This then is manifested in the fact that Christian Scientists fail to comprehend the divine calculus (the true Directors of The Church of Christ Scientist).

[14] This great King is Principle.

[15] Although I call what she describes in this paragraph as the Word Cycle, it is also actually a Word Square, if you see the four major stars as the four corners of a square (the four outer dots on the five side of a die).

[16] This heavenly city is within our consciousness, however, a window is also a symbol for this city, and the sun always lights up a window.

[17] Mary Baker Eddy tells us that the Sun is Spirit.  I find it interesting that in the twenty-four petals of the Jerusalem artichoke that we can write the word Spirit (six letters) a total of four times.

[18] This window is found in the middle (midst) of a remote church edifice of Boston.  Its importance and meaning remains hidden to most Christian Scientists!

[19] I know that this city is found within man’s consciousness, but Mary Baker Eddy wrote symbolically about the city and used these symbols for Window of the Open Book so that we would be taught how to understand this city.  “Spiritual teaching must always be by symbols.”

[20] All stars for Window of the Open Book have seven points.  This is for the seven synonymous terms for God, or God’s completeness.

[21] This star is for “Prayer.”

[22] This star is for “Atonement and Eucharist.”

[23] In Mary Baker Eddy’s Trademark portrait she also wears her pin cross to where it forms an x cross, the original Christian cross, instead of the crucifixion cross.

[24] This star is for “Christian Science versus Spiritualism.”  Versus here means “reverses.”
