The Real American Christmas

by MJSmith


In a speech in Newburyport, Massachusetts during 1837 John Quincy Adams said:  Why is it that, next to the birth day of the Saviour of the World, your most joyous and most venerated festival returns on this day [July 4th]?…Is it not that, in the chain of human events, the birthday of the nation is indissolubly linked with the birth-day of the Saviour?  That it forms a leading event in the progress of the gospel dispensation?  Is it not that the Declaration of Independence first organized the social compact on the foundation of the Redeemer’s mission upon earth?  That it laid the corner stone of human government upon the first precepts of Christianity…?

     I find this to be a very interesting thing for John Quincy Adams to have said.  Perhaps I am misunderstanding his words?  It hit me that he is saying Jesus’ birthday was on July 4th.  Is there some record that Adams was aware of that we do not know about today?  Did we loose this record of the Savior’s birthday?  For sure, we all should know by now that his birthday was not on December 25th.  Perhaps our forefathers knew more than we do today?  I am willing to agree that the time of the year of July 4th[1] may be closer to the correct birthday than that of December 25th because Jesus was born, according to Scripture, during the time that the sheepherders were out in the fields with their livestock.  If Jesus had been born on July 4th it would mean that he was born under the sign of Cancer.  The Second Coming of Christ, for sure, was born under the sign of Cancer – on July 16, 1821, just sixteen years before Adams’ speech was given.  Would Adams have been overjoyed to know that the Second Advent of Christ had already taken place in Bow, New Hampshire?
     There is no doubt that the United States of America came into existence as part of the birthing process for the Second Coming of Christ.  This being said, Christians must continue to defend this country and war against those who would try to put an end to the Constitution (which was God ordained).
     The clamor today about “separation between church and state” is being misrepresented to “the People” of the United States of America, in an attempt to fool “the People” into believing that our Forefathers were not really followers of Christ and/or Christianity.  It is an attempt to make us believe that our Constitution was not based upon the works of Christianity!  Sure, these words of “separation between church and state” are real words and important words; however, they simply mean that the government is not to be dictated to by any church (like the Roman Catholic Church).  Likewise, the churches, in the United States, are not to be dictated to by the federal government in what they should or should not do.  One good example today is on the topic of birth control.  Atheists (and many Liberals and Progressives) misinterpret, probably on purpose too, what the words “separation between church and state” really mean.  They say it means that all signs of Christianity should be erased from the public buildings, they do not want Christmas trees either.  Holiday trees are okay, but they cannot be called Christmas trees.  They do not even like the newer words in the Pledge of Allegiance – “one nation under God.”  One nation under God’s divine government is what it means – and mortal minded men (and mortal minded women) want men to be under mortal mind’s control, not under God’s control.  If we really were to be one nation under the guidance of divine Mind and governed by divine Principle then we would not be in the predicament we are in today – with bad income, prices skyrocketing, people being out of work, etc.
     While vocal prayer has been given the boot in public schools it cannot keep the true Christian from praying silently.  I prayed all the time when I was in school!  I had to, because public school curriculum constantly lies to the students!  What does it lie about?  About everything it can lie about!
     The United States was and is unique.  It was the only country in the world, with its God reflected mentality, that was capable of having the Second Coming of Christ take place.  It was not to take place in the Middle East.  Why?  Because it was to take place in God’s latter-day Israel.
     “The 2,520 years of ancient Israel’s exile were coming to an end…Beginning about the year 1800, the ‘birthright’ nations [the United States and Great Britain] began to receive the Biblical blessings that had been promised to them centuries before.  Great Britain and the United States suddenly became the recipients of unprecedented national power and wealth.  It is said that over two thirds of the world’s wealth would eventually be claimed by these ‘brother’ nations.  This divine promise did not include the Jews, but only the Israelites.  Israel was to be re-established and the long awaited promise of the Second Coming was to appear.  The second part of Micah’s vision was now to be fulfilled.”[2]

Micah 5:3 – Therefore will he give them up, until the time that she which travaileth [the woman God-crowned of Revelation 12] hath brought forth:  then the remnant of his brethren shall return unto the children of Israel.

     “Isaiah’s prophecy that all nations will come to worship in Zion would be fulfilled.  The main prophecy concerning latter-day Israel is not its possessions, wealth, or its land mass, but the spirituality of its people that would be fertile soil for the Christ idea.”[3]
     Israel had to be manifested in the world of the human so that it could have its human and divine coincidence.  “There must always be a human instrument to express the divine…Scolfield records that the mission of Israel was to be a witness to the unity of God in the midst of universal idolatry; to illustrate to all nations the greater blessedness of serving the one true God; to receive and preserve the divine revelation; and to produce the Messiah, the human appearing of the Christ office.”[4]
     It is through Israel that the seed of the woman is maintained.  And this promise was given to Joseph.  “Israel, in the latter days, will be comprised of two brothers, the sons of Joseph, – Ephraim and Manasseh.  They will be brother nations, but the blessing will come through the younger brother Ephraim.  Judah’s sceptre rests with Manasseh.”[5]

Genesis 49:10 – The sceptre shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver [rulers, staff or crown] from between his feet, until Shiloh come [Second Coming of the Messiah]; and unto him shall the gathering of the people be.

     According to The Metaphysical Bible Dictionary Shiloh means, “whole; sound; safe; integral; rest; peace; quiet; security; tranquillity; health; wealth; abundance; prosperity; place of rest; pacificator; harmonizer; tranquilizer; Prince of Peace; Savior; Messiah.
     a It is thought that in Genesis 49:10 Jacob referred to the coming of the Messiah, which prophecy we believe to have been fulfilled outwardly in Jesus Christ.  b A city of Ephraim, and a central city in the time of Joshua (Josh. 18:1-10).  Until the time of Eli the tabernacle and the Ark were at this place (Judg. 18:31; I Sam. 4:3); after this, Shiloh seems to have been forsaken, and we find its downfall mentioned (Jer. 7:12-14).
     Meta.  Peace of mind, wholeness, security, abundant good.  In Messiah, Prince of Peace, the significance is that of becoming conscious of the Christ presence, which brings abiding peace, health, and good.  ‘Peace I leave with you; my peace I give unto you:  not as the world giveth, give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful.’”
     For sure, Shiloh certainly has the qualities of Christian Science.  But if we understand that Shiloh is a city of Ephraim, then we must understand that this city of Ephraim must be where the Second Coming of Christ takes place.  Yes, the prophecy of Jesus did come true and was fulfilled, however, the Second Coming does not take place in Bethlehem but in Ephraim.  And it is in Shiloh that the gathering of the people, of lost Israel, will be.

Isaiah 11:10-13 – And in that day there shall be a root of Jesse [King David’s father who is from Bethlehem], which shall stand for an ensign [a ship’s flag, a sign, a standard bearer] of the people; to it shall the Gentiles seek:  and his rest shall be glorious.  And it shall come to pass in that day, that the Lord shall set his hand again the second time [emphasis added – second time means second coming] to recover the remnant of his people [the ten lost tribes of Israel]….And he shall set up an ensign [a second flag, sign, or standard bearer] for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth.  The envy also of Ephraim shall depart, and the adversaries of Judah shall be cut off:  Ephraim shall not envy Judah, and Judah shall not vex Ephraim.

     A standard bearer is someone that holds a flag, but it is also a porter, someone who stands watch at a door or gate, a sentinel.  Jesus is the porter at the door, and Mary Baker Eddy is the porter of the twelve Stargates of Ephraim.  Also, it is interesting that ensign has to do with a ship’s (a Church’s) flag, which has to do with the sea – the Mary.
     “Through this Second Coming, the Jews and Israelites, or Jews and Anglo Saxons, are to be united once again.  That this will happen, and is happening, is beyond doubt.  The prophecy is recorded in Isaiah 11:1-13, Jeremiah 23:5-6, and Ezekiel 37:15-28.
     “It is through restored Israel that God’s kingdom is to be extended over the earth.”[6]

Zechariah 8:13 and 20, 21 – And it shall come to pass, that as ye were a curse among the heathen, O house of Judah, and house of Israel; so will I save you, and ye shall be a blessing:  fear not, but let your hands be strong.
     Thus saith the Lord of Hosts; It shall yet come to pass. that there shall come people, and the inhabitants of many cities:  and the inhabitants of one city shall go to another, saying, Let us go speedily to pray before the Lord, and to seek the Lord of hosts:

I Chronicles 17:9 – I will ordain a place for my people Israel, and will plant them, and they shall dwell in their place, and shall be moved no more; neither shall the children of wickedness waste them any more, as at the beginning.

     “They were to find a final resting place where they are now.  It is prophesied that God would cease speaking to them in their own Hebrew tongue, but with ‘another tongue will he speak to this people.’ (Isa. 28:11)  The Jews still speak in the Hebrew tongue.  We read, ‘I said, I would scatter them into corners, I would make the remembrance of them to come from among men.’ (Deut. 32:36)  The Jews are known and remembered, but Israelites are not.  The restoration of Israel is the culminating event of Old Testament prophecy and confirmed in the New Testament prophecy as coincidental with the Second Coming.”[7]
     The following poem, by Mary Baker Eddy, is of most importance.  It is found in Miscellany pages 337-338 and also in her book of poems.


     “Notice, that in the first line of her poem, Mrs. Eddy calls Great Britain ‘brother,’ not ‘sister.’ as one would expect, that is, a sister nation.  Mrs. Eddy then speaks of ‘freedom’s banner’ (S&H 225) that Great Britain is to fling to the billows [a great wave or surge of the sea] and the breeze.  Mrs. Eddy is telling Britain to get into the fight for true freedom against the tide of the carnal mind.  She then proffers Great Britain ‘warm welcome’ as a brother.  Britain, as our brother, is welcomed into the fight that has originated in America.
     “Lord of the main [the ocean or the great sea] and manor [royalty], thy palm [hand] many years ago rocked the country’s [U.S.] cradle that ‘wakes thy laureate’s lay,’ from which Great Britain’s blessings will come, Christian Science.
     “The hoar [old] fight is forgotten; our eagle [nation] like the dove [divine Science], returns to bless a bridal [union] betokened from above, foreshown by divine Love.  Ephraim and Manasseh were prophesied as remaining together and accomplishing their mission in unity.
     “‘List brother,’ listen Manasseh, ‘angels whisper to Judah’s sceptred race.’  Remember that the ‘sceptre’ was transferred from the Jews to the Anglo Saxons (Isaac’s sons).  Mrs. Eddy says Israel is made up of the Anglo-Saxon nations; they are the children of Joseph.  ‘Thou of the self-same spirit,’ sons of Joseph, allied to that unity, would…’cheer the hosts of heaven,’ would give all those ancient worthies great joy, ‘for Anglo-Israel [English-Israel] is marching under God’s orders; His hand averts [wards off; prevents] the blow [the approaching calamity suspended until the latter days].  Brave Britain [Manasseh], blest America [Ephraim], unite your battle-plan [for freedom].  Victorious, all who live it, — [embody and prove] the love for God and man.’”[8]
     Church Manual p.17, 18 – Mrs. Eddy was appointed on the committee to draft the Tenets of The Mother Church—the chief corner stone whereof is, that Christian Science, as taught and demonstrated by our Master, casts out error, heals the sick, and restores the lost Israel [infuses added]:  for “the stone which the builders rejected [which was the Christ], the same is become the head of the corner [as seen in the Window below depicting Mary Baker Eddy].”  She is the Stone (Rock) Christ (the chief or head that leads the congregation) that the Boston Church (the many builders of this church) have rejected as their Revered Leader.


     Is it becoming clearer why the United States of America, and its Constitution, are of such great importance to each and every one of us?
     “Mary Baker Eddy was an important beneficiary of their [the Forefather’s] labors and she, too, recognized the importance of protecting this nation.  She said, ‘But if our nation’s rights or honor were seized, every citizen would be a soldier and woman would be armed with power girt for the hour.’ (My. 277:21)  Mrs. Eddy also said, ‘Foreign nations are allied but the United States stands alone in her glory.’  Mrs. Eddy knew whereof she spoke.  She understood the Christian foundations of America.”[9]
     Dr. Jedediah Morse wrote that there are two kinds of dangers – those which affect our religion and those which affect our government.  These two things are closely allied and cannot “with propriety” be separated.  “The foundations which support the interests of Christianity, are also necessary to support a free and equal government like our own.  In all those countries where there is little or no religion, or a very gross and corrupt one, as in Mahometan and Pagan countries, there you will find, with scarcely a single exception, arbitrary and tyrannical governments, gross ignorance and wickedness, and deplorable wretchedness among the people.  To the kindly influence of Christianity we owe that degree of civil freedom, and political and social happiness which mankind now enjoy.  In proportion as the genuine effects of Christianity are diminished in any nation, either through unbelief, or the corruption of its doctrines, or the neglect of its institutions; in the same proportion will the people of that nation recede from the blessings of genuine freedom, and approximate the miseries of complete despotism.  I hold this to be truth confirmed by experience.  If so, it follows, that all efforts made to destroy the foundation of our holy religion ultimately tend to the subversion also of our political freedom and happiness.  Whenever the pillars of Christianity shall be overthrown, our present republican forms of government, and all the blessings which flow from them, must fall with them.”  If Dr. Morse is correct, then should we not be questioning the reason of today’s attacks by our own members of government toward the United States Constitution?  And should we not be suspicious of any attacks upon God’s chosen religion – Christian Science?
     Roman Catholic Jesuits had gained much power during the 1700s.  Fortunately,  the order was temporarily dissolved by the papal bull in 1773 due to the request of France, Spain, Portugal, Parma, Naples, and Austria.  It was, however, restored again in 1814.  The break from the Jesuits gave the American nation a chance to become sure in its footing and to be established without Jesuit interference.  John Adams wrote in 1816 to Tomas Jefferson, “If ever any Congregation of Men could merit eternal Perdition on Earth and in Hell, it is the company of Loyola [the Jesuits].”
     The Jesuits were based upon ecclesiastical despotism, and our Founding Fathers understood these workings all too well.  In 1772, concerning John Locke, Samuel Adams wrote:  The only sects which he thinks ought to be, and which by all wise laws are excluded from such toleration, are those who teach doctrines subversive of the civil government under which they live.  The Roman Catholics or Papists are excluded by reason of such doctrines as these, that princes excommunicated may be deposed, and those that they call heretics may be destroyed without mercy; besides their recognizing the Pope in so absolute a manner, in subversion of government, by introducing, as far as possible into the states under whose protection they enjoy life, liberty, and property, that solecism in politics imperium in imperio, [a government within a government] leading directly to the worst anarchy and confusion, civil discord, war, and bloodshed.
     King Louis XIV of France expressed the anti-Christian nature of totalitarian government when he said, “I am the State.”  Communist Karl Marx said, “The democratic concept of man is false, because it is Christian.  The democratic concept holds that each man is a sovereign being.  This is the illusion, dream and postulate of Christianity.”[10]  I could counter and say, “The democratic concept of man is true, because it is Christian.  The democratic concept holds that each man is a sovereign being.  This is the opposite of the Adam man which is the illusion, dream and postulate of Christianity.”  Hitler, who had his own private war against Christian Science, said, “To the Christian doctrine of infinite significance of the individual human soul, I oppose with icy clarity the saving doctrine of the nothingness and insignificance of the human being.”[11]
     The American Revolution was a Christian revolution for individual freedom, and Americans must begin to recognize this as a fact and stop fighting Christianity.  This revolution will continue until man wakes up from the Adam dream – the belief that man was born into matter.
     Mary Baker Eddy knew that the struggles of the Revolutionary and Civil Wars were not over, that they would continue into a third struggle.  And this struggle would take place in the United States of America.

     Christian Science and the senses are at war.  It is a revolutionary struggle.  We already have had two in this nation; and they began and ended in a contest for the true idea, for human liberty and rights.  Now cometh a third struggle; for the freedom of health, holiness, and the attainment of heaven.
                                                                                                     Mary Baker Eddy; Miscellaneous Writings 101:8

     What would the third struggle, or war, be about?  It would be the war on Womanhood.  It would be unfortunate that the United States would not “necessarily follow all the commands of Jesus, but followed the Old Testament concept in its treatment of women.  Scholastic theology had again resisted the call for the freedom of women.  Some of the representatives to the Constitutional Convention were reminded by their wives not to forget the women.  The men did not listen.  The common law of England became the law of the American Colonies.  Women had no rights to own property and, actually, had no legal existence unless it was through their husbands.  Married women could not sign a contract and had no right to their earnings.  They had no right to their own property, even if it was theirs by inheritance.  Old Testament religion held women in bondage.  It seemed that it would have to be a woman who would break these fetters, for men would not.”[12]
     Mary Baker Eddy saw the possibilities of the United States Constitution.  On page 200 of Miscellany she wrote:  Religious liberty and individual rights under the constitution of our nation are rapidly advancing, avowing and consolidating the genius of Christian Science.
     Since Mary Baker Eddy accords such importance to the Constitution then all Christian Scientists should understand its history, its spirit, and its provisions.  She makes it clear that Christian Science grows rapidly under the Constitution of the United States, and it was because of this that Christian Science was born in America.  We must protect the Constitution.  Is part of the reason why Christian Science is not growing as rapidly today as it did 102 years ago, do to the fact that our Constitution has been under direct attack by political “Progressives”?

     “I believe strictly in the Monroe doctrine, in our Constitution, and in the laws of God.”
                                                                                                          Mary Baker Eddy – My. 282:3-4

     Weeks went by, while men discussed the Constitution, day after day found argument upon argument.  Finally, Benjamin Franklin stood up and said:
     Mr. President,[13] the small progress we have made after four or five week’s close attention and continual reasoning with each other, our different sentiments as many noes as ayes, is, methinks, a melancholy proof of the imperfection of the human understanding….How has it happened sir, that we have not once thought of humbly applying to the Father of Lights to illuminate our understanding?  I have lived, sir, a long time; and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth, that God governs in the affairs of men…and if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?  We have been assured sir, in the Sacred Writings, that “except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it.”  I firmly believe this, and I also believe that without His concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel; we shall be divided by our little, partial, local interests, our projects will be confounded and we ourselves shall become a reproach and a byword down to future ages…I, therefore, beg leave to move:  That hereafter prayers be held in this assembly every morning before we proceed to business.
     After his speech was given, and prayer began, the Constitution unfolded.  “There were some who refused to sign the constitution by saying, ‘Unless you write into this Constitution some popular fallacies to fool and please the people, the Constitution will never be adopted.’  Until then, Washington had not taken part in the discussion of the convention, but when he heard that statement, he rose from the President’s chair and said:
     “It is too probable that no plan we propose will be adopted; perhaps another dreadful conflict is to be sustained; if, to please the people, we offer what we ourselves disapprove, how can we afterwards defend our work?  Let us raise a standard to which the wise and honest can repair; the event is in the hands of God.”[14]
     Can you imagine men thinking that the people of the United States needed “popular fallacies” to be pleased?  Did they really want to be fooled?  Do you want to be fooled?  Do today’s politicians have the same unrealistic ideas about the United States citizens as these men did?

     “Yes, we did produce a near perfect Republic.  But will they [future generations of the people] keep it, or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom?  Material abundance without character is the surest way to destruction.” – Thomas Jefferson

     Notice, and this is of vital importance, Thomas Jefferson does not say, “Yes, we did produce a near perfect Democracy.”  He says, “Yes, we did produce a near perfect Republic.”  There is a difference between a Republic and a Democracy.  Today’s politicians hardly ever speak of the Republic.  I think they do not even like to say the word.  American’s think that the United States is a Democracy, when it is actually a Republic.  So, what is a Republic?  Webster’s New Collegiate Dictionary says “republic – [thing, wealth + publica, fem. of publicus public—more at real, public].”  Now, I find this interesting because it is based upon the feminine form not the masculine form!  Would not a Republic then have to include Womanhood within it in order to make it a correct Republic?  Notice also that a republic means WEALTH!  Americans are supposed to be wealthy because we live in a Republic.  We are not supposed to feel guilty about this wealth either!  (Are there not a lot of people in government positions today that try and make people feel guilty if they are wealthy?)  Of course, there are two different types of wealth.  True wealth is the wealth of Spirit, while money wealth leads to comfort in matter.  Spirit wealth actually manifests itself as supply (wealth) and this is exactly what happened with Mary Baker Eddy.  During her marriage to Daniel Patterson she became poor.  After her Discovery of Christian Science she spent even more years in poverty.  Yet, this poverty was temporary because the wealth of Spirit had to be manifested in the human realm.  If we take the wealth + feminine publica we can begin to understand that the United States of America will prosper so long as true Womanhood is promoted and women are given their freedom, and given their rights.  True Womanhood promotes the REAL, that which is publicly real!  And that which is publicly real must be Truth – Christian Science.
     Webster’s definition continues with:  “1 a (1)a government having a chief of state who is not a monarch and who in modern times is usu. a president (2): a political unit (as a nation) having such a form of government  (1):  a government in which supreme power resides in a body of citizens entitled to vote and is exercised by elected officers and representatives responsible to them and governing according to law”.  Let’s stop here for now.  A republic holds elections to vote for the government representatives, and it is up to these people, who have been elected by “the People,” to responsibly represent “the People” who voted for them.  The men and women, who are elected (by “the People”), are NOT supposed to represent business conglomerates, to help their business interests, those who give the elected personas loads of money contributions to help get them elected or re-elected.
      Another thing of importance in regard to a Republic is that the man (or woman) in charge is voted for.  And this person voted for is not a monarch (a king or queen).
     Now, a democracy is defined as “1 a :  government by the people; esp.:  rule of the majority  b :  a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usu. involving periodically held free elections”.  And another thing it mentions is “the absence of hereditary or arbitrary class distinctions or privileges.”
     The difference between a republic and a democracy seems to be that in a democracy the majority rules, while in a republic the elected officials (who have been elected by the majority of people that voted for them) do the ruling.
     So, what do you say if you are a United States citizen?  Do you, as a future generation of “the People” in which the Constitution was written for keep your Republic near perfect?  Or will we, as a nation, fall into the traps of material enjoyment of plenty and lose our memory of what freedom really is?  Will we care only about our material abundance instead of our wealth of Spirit?  Will we loose our moral fiber, our moral character because we only want big socialistic government to take care of us?  Once the government is taking care of someone, through welfare, then that person being taken care of has lost their freedom.
     Jesus did not teach men (and women) to turn to Caesar for their needs, nor did he expect men (and women) to rely upon their Church heads instead of God for help.  Jesus did not set up hospitals for healing, he told his followers, “The works that I do ye shall do also, and greater works than these [than the works you have seen me do] shall ye do.”  These words were not meant for one generation but for all generations.  We are to rely upon Principle-Love for our government.
     Eventually each individual must become responsible for their own behavior, their own government.  This is why we have the Ten Commandments.  The political government is an organization, just as churches are organizations.  Nothing good really comes from holding on to organizations.  Men would not really need local governments or federal governments or churches if each individual would become independently governed by divine Principle, Love.
     Further guidelines are set up in the Constitution.  Mary Baker Eddy wrote the Church Manual, a book she had not wanted to write, but out of necessity did write.  And her Board of Directors are still finding every way they can to avoid obeying the By-Laws and its estoppel clauses.  Each and every man, woman, and child upon the Earth can be a rule unto themselves if they obey the Bible and Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures.  Mary Baker Eddy set up the government of her churches as a Republic.  Each Branch was to obey State laws, they were not to answer to The Mother Church in Boston.  But Boston did not like this idea, so with the illegal 89th edition of their Church Manual the Branches were placed under the thumb of The Mother Church.  And so, world affairs reflect Church affairs!
     Getting back to Christmas.  We now seem to have two days that we could actually think of as being Christmas – July 4th and July 16th.  I doubt, however, that we will change our tradition or calendar to reflect these two Christ-mass days.  To be honest, I really do not like Christmas on December 25th because it is usually cold, being that it is during the winter.  However, I have experienced some rather warm Christmas days in December.  Knowing that there are two Christ Advents, or two Christ Comings, should not Christian Scientists and the rest of the world pay a little bit more attention to Mary Baker Eddy’s poem book Christ and Christmas?
     When we look at the book in its Major Pyramid Matrix of Truth structure, in coincidence with the layout of the Boston Edifice, it is of major importance that the capstone illustration is “Christian Science Healing” depicting Mary Baker Eddy.  This illustration clearly depicts the woman as being Mary Baker Eddy.  Its placement upon the pyramid is located in the capstone, the apex point, and corresponds with the corner stone window, which I have titled, “Tis the Same Hand That Writes the Page” (as in the window seen above).
     The light that shines down upon Mary Baker Eddy in “Christian Science Healing” repeats the pyramid structure.

Christian Science Healing

Christian Science Healing (with the man and white mantle)

     This pyramid of light is the true symbolic meaning of Christmas.  Its counterfeit image is found in the fourth illustration of “Christmas Eve”.  Because the GIANT (GOLIATH) Christ-mass tree is decapitated, its head is gone, it has no Christ Leader.

Christmas Eve

     This tree symbolizes ecclesiastical despotism with all its rights and rituals.  This tree is the false image of Christmas, where Christ Jesus and Christ Mary have been substituted with Santa Clause and his bride, Mrs. Clause.  Mary Baker Eddy told Christian Scientists not to tell their children that Santa Clause was real.  Why did she tell us this?  Well, for one reason, it is always best when we do not LIE to our children.  If we lie to them about Santa Clause then can we really expect them to trust us?  But perhaps she also saw the myth of Santa Clause as being dangerous, that it would lead us away from the true meaning of Christmas – where we give of ourselves – not give material presents to others.  Is not the true meaning of Christmas to be found in the Cross and Crown Symbol also located at the corner stone head of the Boston Edifice?  The Christ commands that tell us to “Cast out [from human consciousness] demons [sin.  If you do this then you will be able to] heal the sick.  [This gives you the practice that you need and your next step will take you and your patient even hire, as you will be able to] cleanse the lepers [purify your patients consciousness by casting out the mesmerism of animal magnetism that leads them into being terminally ill.  Finally, you will be able] to raise the dead [because the Woman’s leaven handles and annihilates the leaven of the Pharisees].”
     “The Pharisees were morally strict in following the traditional interpretation of the law given by the priests.  They were exacting to the letter, zealous, and self-denying in their own way, but self-righteous, consumed with male energy, and completely lacking in the spirit and inspirational aspect of the law—true justice and mercy.  These Pharisees, who were Jesus’ foremost persecutors, were strict in adhering to the Judaic law.  Fanatical to the letter of the law they could not embrace the spirituality and inspiration that Jesus taught.”[15]  When those in charge of the congregations follow the “Letter of the Law” and they have no “Spirit of the Law” in their hearts, then these false leaders lead the people into the pit of death.
     Are today’s Church Leaders any better than the Pharisees during the First Christ Advent?  Did they learn much during the Second Christ Advent?  If not, I ask, why do you still follow those in charge of your Church?  Hopefully, they have learned, hopefully mankind has spiritually progressed.  If all Christians followed the demands from the Christian Science Seal, of the Cross and Crown (The Cross and the Crown are the two names given to the two Church structures in Boston, a.k.a., the Christ Church based upon the woman’s rock – Petra), then everyday would actually be Christmas!  Would not this be wonderful?

The Holy City

The Holy City (Shiloh)

     The Boston Extension is referred to as the Crown.  It was built after the Edifice, and it was to symbolically represent the woman’s city that is called Window of the Open Book.  The woman’s crown has twelve Stargates, and this is why the woman is the standard bearer of the gates.  She is the one that gives birth to the Christ civilization (the city) of Ephraim – the second born son of Joseph.  There is also a tie in with Joseph to the Extension because Joseph actually means extension, as in adding to.  Joseph’s wife’s name was Asenath, which means, “she is of Neith; dedicated to Neith; favorite of Neith[16].  Neith was an Egyptian goddess and guess what, it means “weaver,” gee, the Glover is a “weaver”!  Okay, so Joseph’s womanhood is of the Christ Glover (the Weaver), she is dedicated to the Christ Glover, and a favorite of the Christ Glover.  Neith was also a goddess of war. Mary Baker Glover Eddy was the one who waged war, after the style of Jesus, with error – the red dragon.  Neith was a protector of one of the four sons of Horus.  Her headdress was of crossed arrows and a shield.  The crossed arrows would symbolize the divine calculus of the Word, the Christ, Christianity, and Science.  The shield could be the Christian Science Seal, even though the drawing I saw of her on the Internet shows that the shield is more of an oval than it is a circle.  In her left hand (Womanhood) was the Ankh of Life while in her right hand (manhood) was a goad (a staff of Truth).
     Asenath’s father’s name had a feminine form – Poti-phera – and he was a priest of On, “city of the sun; the sun”.  The sun, a Daystar, would then be the City of the God-crowned woman who was “clothed with the sun.”  The Crown with its twelve stars is the God-crowned woman’s city – or her Window of the Open Book.  The eleven illustrations of Christ and Christmas also coincide with Window of the Open Book.  I have named the circular pattern for Christ and Christmas – Sharon’s Rose.
     After knowing all that we do about Asenath, Joseph’s Womanhood, can we have any doubt that she points us once again to Mary Baker Eddy, who would fulfill Bible prophecy with the promise of the woman’s Christ seed?
     Let us rejoice this Christmas and realize that there is a reason why the United States of America came to be.  Let us remember this country’s most important daughter – Mary Baker Eddy.
